01 · Earth

A giant cloud up in the sky
The things she saw she hardly could spell
Honey, don't stay too long in the sun, said Mom
And Julia doesn't feel well
Waters are dying but they're still blue
Blue as they were when the grass hadn't gone
Picking flowers is something I've never done
Because of radiation

On the day
The day the earth stood still
It's getting dark
So move a little closer
Yesterday
The white powder fell
But the snow didn't melt in the sun
And the summer has gone

A whole new world has gone astray
People seem never to learn
Mistakes that are made steer us into
A corporate grave - genetic alteration
Night after night I keep dreaming
Burned out children won't play anymore
Blown away and the wind takes their ashes ashore
Their final destination

On the day
The day the earth stood still
It's getting dark
So move a little closer
Yesterday
The white powder fell
But the snow didn't melt in the sun
And the summer has gone

02 · Life Is a Distance

Station to station my life needs improvement
It may be corrected, things have been done
All that I ever wanted, you'll find it in the replay
Or so they say

Time lost forever, the seconds keep running
Just like the sand in the hourglass
All the faces I ever knew have to die someday
They fade away

Life is a distance
And I walk it halfway back
Sooner or later
My thoughts drifting backwards
The future is catching up
And I didn't notice anyway

Just turn the glass, see the past taking over
People you knew stand right next to you
Your whole life seem to pass your eyes
Distant memories and I realise that

Life is a distance
And I walk it halfway back
Sooner or later
My thoughts drifting backwards
The future is catching up
And I didn't notice anyway

So how can I say
That anything we ever had was something
Words we spoke meant something
I really miss the days gone by
Although I hardly can remember
Things we had meant something
Words we spoke meant something
I really miss the days gone by
Although I hardly can remember

03 · The Colour of Love

You take my nerves - you bring me sorrow
I reach out for a hatchet seeking entry
Your time is running out - there's no excuse

And after all you smile
You try in making fun of me
You're simply irresistible
The colour of your hair is the colour of love

Make me believe that
It all lies in our hands
And when you close your eyes for me
I seem to understand

I must admit I miss your smile
But all that lingers on is in my head
All that's left of you - memories…

So I descend - le souterrain
And I tear down the wall that hides my love
You are still beautiful
The colour of your hair is the colour of love

Make me believe that
It all lies in our hands
And when you close your eyes for me
I seem to understand

04 · Sleeping Beauty

Give me a reason why I should give in
I've got nothing more to conceal
Call me ignoring or intolerant
It's just in the way that you see it
Then I recall days gone by
And images I left behind
No acting for purpose that has to be served
No smile on my face
When there's nothing but hate in my mind

For the tears in your eyes
I will no longer try
To hold on to the past
And there's nowhere to hide
From that smile on your face
From the tears in your eyes

When I'm alone I keep asking myself
Am I right? Could it be that I'm wrong?
Far too much seen and too many things done
And too many hopes that have gone
So it may be true what they're telling me now
That the old times were simply the best
But there is nothing I have to regret
And I couldn't tell what I like more
When it comes to the test

Women surround me and neon-lights shine
I am trapped but I feel that I'm high
Beautiful lady is smiling at me
And she gives me a blink of an eye
Waking from dreams and reality brings
Me back home to a warm fire place
Where my beauty lies sleeping and I hold her tight
In my arms and the smile on her face
Is the smile of a bride

05 · Mantrap - A Wish Come True

Looks at the entrance and I
Am aware of the smiles on their faces
Should I care?
So I entered the cave
For the smile that you gave
I had set my eyes on you
And the tunes that they play
Sound familiar to me
But I see nobody dancing
You take my hand
But I cannot recall your name

You are, you are, you know, you know what you are
You are my consolation
You are, you are, you know, you know what you are
You are my destiny
You are, you are, you know, you know what you are
The incarnation of a wish is what you are

You're getting closer to me
And the things that I see
Must be right, they can't be wrong
And the words that you say
Are "come, let's get away"
And "I really like your songs"
If that's all I can do
Making love to a tune
That is far way off romantic
I'd rather be with you
Than with no one at all

You are, you are, you know, you know what you are
You are my consolation
You are, you are, you know, you know what you are
You are my destiny
You are, you are, you know, you know what you are
The incarnation of a wish is what you are

06 · Time To Leave You

The night's enchanting the locusts speaks
Am I too demanding? You're so neat
Gore on your gown and your pale face
No convulsions just grace

Tears on my pillow is our song
Tunes from the past that we sang alone
These times are over now I have to say
It's time to leave you

I can see now there's no tomorrow (tomorrow)
Leaving you now
So why should I surrender?
I can see now there's no tomorrow (tomorrow)
Leaving you now
It seems there is no coming back

Maybe I'm guilty, Could be true
But say who was cheating was that you
If he was the right one who will know
You won't believe me

Darkness surrounds you brick by brick
Though you're so delicate, I admit
I really feel sorry your on the decline
It's time to leave you

I can see now there's no tomorrow (tomorrow)
Leaving you now
So why should I surrender?
I can see now there's no tomorrow (tomorrow)
Leaving you now
It seems there is no coming back

I can see now there's no tomorrow (tomorrow)
Leaving you now
So why should I surrender?
I can see now there's no tomorrow (tomorrow)
Leaving you now
It seems there is no coming back

07 · Ambush

Every ten years objective time
I'm aging only a month
If you're alive, returning according to schedule
I'm twenty-eight when you arrive
Hurry! I don't care if you're 30
Hurry! I don't care if you're old
I never ever wanted another
If I can't be your lover I wanna be your nurse

I cannot recall
The reason that I came here for
I don't know when it started
I don't know when it ends
I don't see any sense in this
My mind has been erased
So I can get along with this

Lost in time and space, what am I fighting for
Seriously damaged but I won't let it show
Still there is capacity as long as there is faith
Pump-gun trigger pushed, we're being ambushed

No possible defence in the midst of the crossfire
As long as I am conscious there'll be no way to stop me
Got no ammo left but the power of my fists
A pain inside my chest just leaves me defenceless

I cannot recall
The reason that I came here for
I don't know when it started
I don't know when it ends
I don't see any sense in this
My mind has been erased
So I can get along with this

I feel disintegrated but still I am alive
Don't ask me 'cause I don't know the way that I survived
I feel the medic's fingers tickling my guts
The burning in my stomach is trying to drive me nuts

Can't see no reason in the things that I have done
It happens to be war, it's a war that can't be won
It's time to quit but they won't let you go
You're far too important for things that you already know

I cannot recall
The reason that I came here for
I don't know when it started
I don't know when it ends
I don't see any sense in this
My mind has been erased
So I can get along with this

Every ten years objective time
I'm aging only a month
If you're alive, returning according to schedule
I'm twenty-eight when you arrive
Hurry! I don't care if you're 30
Hurry! I don't care if you're old
I never ever wanted another
If I can't be your lover I wanna be your nurse

I cannot recall
The reason that I came here for
I don't know when it started
I don't know when it ends
I don't see any sense in this
My mind has been erased
So I can get along with this

08 · Mindforce

Nocturnal mission - stage one - sit down - relax
Is this reality - is this the place called Metroplex
This has affinity with none I've seen before
It is intentional - I don't like to be bored
Bulk dump request sequence terminated now
Shut down the sentinel and you'll be getting through
Somehow - somewhere - security alert
The system's aware that I'm in - but too late
I have taken control of the master console
Checking up all of the human input devices

A beam of light went through my eyes
Through my mind
Read your genetic code
To start the mind's destruction

Incoming data - the victim has been found
Age 26 - catholic - convincing bank account
Data restriction of subconscious kind
Virtual bombers attacking the mind
Overtaking routine in progress
That while deleting is force to deliver the rest
Of my new personality code
I am transforming - incoming warning
His brain repulses - a smile on my face
As I'm unjacking Brad H. to finally exit the game

A beam of light went through my eyes
Through my mind
Read your genetic code
To start the mind's destruction

Corrode me
Decompose
My eyes they have seen
What I could've been
A raven cries
When a vigilante dies

A beam of light went through my eyes
Through my mind
Read your genetic code
To start the mind's destruction

09 · Nowhere

I saw your picture in the news
Knowing you're somewhere
I haven't seen the warning sign
Although you were my friend
I hear your voice
I can still remember
I see you falling down
Still feel the warmth of your hand

Nowhere to run - nowhere to hide
When there's no place to flee from remorse
Repentance won't alter the course
There's no escape from myself

Whatever happened there's no use
Knowing they'll never find me
If only I could turn back time
To make a change… but then
You had the choice we've
Always been contenders
Give me a reason why
I still feel the warmth of your hand

10 · Mantrap - The Seduction

Looks at the entrance and I am aware
Of the smiles on their faces but why should I care
So I enter the cave that is more of a tomb
Shadows have eyes and they're talking to you

The tunes that they play sound familiar to me
A black hit of space on the steps around me
In the midst of it all the goddess arrives
She's totally naked, can I still believe in my eyes?

She's coming closer, she's after my soul
She's telling me things that I already know
"This night is sacred, I'll rip you apart…
Ich will Dich spüren und lieben auf meine Art."

Bring me the body
Or bring me the man
Ain't no big deal
To bring on your nightmare
Bring me the body
Or bring me the man
I'll bring on your nightmare

She is my destiny, she's breaking every rule
I guess it's called addiction, I don't know what to do
Cause there is no complaining my hands on her thighs
Just penetration, no tears and no alibis

11 · Im Innern einer Frau

Ein Blick in den Spiegel ins Blau meiner Augen
Sie stellen mir Fragen - Antworten fallen so schwer
Dann stehst Du vor mir und ich muß Dir sagen:
S'ist aus und vorbei, ich will Dich nicht mehr

Du bist unerträglich - Du bist egoistisch
Treibst mich in den Wahnsinn - bist uneinsichtig
All das, was mir gefällt ist nicht wichtig
Wie kann man nur so selbstsüchtig sein

Wie sieht es aus im Innern dieser Frau
Ich habe eine Ahnung - weiß es nicht genau
Einmal mit ihren Augen sehen
Einmal nur Ihre Gedanken verstehen
Wie sieht es aus im Innern dieser Frau
Ich habe eine Ahnung - weiß es nicht genau
Ich gá¤be alles und würd' ich's bereuen
Ein einziges Mal auf der anderen Seite zu sein

Ich flehe Dich an, mir Gründe zu nennen
Schreie Dich an, doch erreiche Dich nicht
Was zählen Tage, die wir uns kennen
Warum willst Du, daß alles zerbricht

Bis zu den Knien im Meer Deiner Trá¤nen
Ich kann's nicht mehr hören, Du sagst Du bereust
Was hilft Gerede vergangener Zeiten
Denn alles was zählte und wichtig war ist nun vorbei
