01 · Boy Toy

I'm a boy toy
A piece of meat for you to enjoy
I'm a love envoy
All my skills for you I deploy
I'm a boy toy
At your service, don't be so coy
I'm a wind-up toy
Heaven sent to fill the void

My heart knows no master

I'm a boy toy
Only here to bring you joy
Easy to decoy
In this pond I'm the most precious koi
I'm a boy toy
Another car in your convoy
I'm a wind-up toy
The kind of man you wish to employ

02 · Superhuman

Perfect, in the full bloom of youth
Intoxicated with new life
We don't play by the rules
We adjusted to an ideal world
We bear our scars with pride
The king is dead
Hail to the master race

We're superhuman
Candy for the eye
Less than human
And withered inside

The world seems trival from this cloud
Up here we stand the test of time
Every dark and lonely hour
We compensate with self-denial

We don't accept the facts of life
We demand the impossible
We make you believe our lies
There isn't anything you wouldn't do
To bask in our light
Don't worry though,
We'll get you all fixed up

We're superhuman
Candy for the eye
Less than human
And withered inside

Looking down on the world from this height
Watching the mortals passing by
So eager in their vain endeavor
To detain the flow of time

03 · Beauty of Decay

Another combat
Another reason to compete
Without this kind of war
I would never be complete
I made a new start
Subconsciously surrendered
To my bittersweet art
Doing what I have to do

I know that you are testing me
I'm stronger than I ever thought I'd be

The beauty of decay
Like a match that fires up
Then dies away
The beauty of decay
A falling star that burns so bright
Then fades away

A primal force that's taking all
I've got to spare
Trembling deep within
I'm bleeding with a heart to bear

I know that you are testing me
I'm stronger than I ever thought I'd be

The beauty of decay
Like a match that fires up
Then dies away
The beauty of decay
A falling star that burns so bright
Then fades away
The beauty of decay
Makes me feel alive to know
The price to pay
The beauty of decay
How I wish to stay to see another day

04 · Brotherhood of Man

Decent man clubbed to death
For an iPod and some cash
Kid crashed a stolen car
Gang war in suburbia
Abused girl shot her dad
Little boy forced to give head
14 year old gorgeous teen
Lives to be the new porn queen

They say God has got a master plan
His will we can never understand
I hope God has got a master plan
Welcome to the brotherhood of man

Two bodies in a burning van
Newborn disposed in a trash can
Villains and small-town preachers,
Hookers praising all their delicate features
The beautiful and the vain
No doctors can fix their brains
Couple tortured nameless kid
When asked why: "Just for the fun of it"

They say God has got a master plan
His will we can never understand
I hope God has got a master plan
His way only He can understand
Welcome to the brotherhood of man

05 · Stargazer

I walked through deserted streets
Haunted by forgotten dreams
Driven by what's out of reach
Wasted all my love
My genetic makeup
Nothing was all I ever got

How far do I have to go
To see the starlit sky in this sea of lights?
How far do I have to go
To re-ignite the flame that brightened my insides?
I'll go as far as my feet carry me
Don't want no rest
Don't need no sleep

Drained my cup of sorrow to the dregs
Learned to love everything I detest
Countless crimes I had to confess
I slept my way up
Put off Lady Luck
Nothing was all I ever got

How far do I have to go
To see the starlit sky in this sea of lights?
How far do I have to go
To re-ignite the flame that brightened my insides?
I'll go as far as my feet carry me
Don't want no rest
Don't need no sleep
I keep on moving to the beat

06 · Binary Soldier

I'm a binary soldier
Off and on, zero one
I'm made of simple digits
A program set to run

I execute instructions
I'm running man-made tasks
Specialized and optimized
Would never think to ask

We march on
We march on
We march on
March on
We march on
We're binary soldiers
We march on
We do what you told us
We march on
To do what you told us
We march on

You're my default user
I've read it off the screen
Command lines from a console
Enhancing my routines

I'm running countless cycles
I'm in an endless loop
I know my lines of code and know
What I'm supposed to do

We march on
We march on
We march on
March on
We march on
We're binary soldiers
We march on
We do what you told us
We march on
To do what you told us
We march on

But something in the source code
Is throwing up a prompt
Displays a simple message
For someone to respond

I'm frozen, become static
Shot down of wait to continue?
An error in the process
You could end this if you wanted to

We march on
We're binary soldiers
We march on
We march on
To do what you told us
March on
We march on
We're binary soldiers
We march on
We do what you told us
We march on
To do what you told us
March on

07 · Want to Believe

You said till the end of the world
You promised to hold me for all the time
You said all is forgiven
That love is patient, love is kind

I'm not as strong as I meant to be
My voice breaks appart easily

I want to believe in you
I want to be as close as I can be
I want to hang on to you
And that is just the hardest thing for me to do
Believe in you
I want to be as close as I can be
I want to hang on to you
And that is just the hardest thing for me to do

You said there is no need to fear
The perfect love for both of us
You said you never turn away from me
Promised you'd give me everything I need

I'm not as strong as I meant to be
I'm falling appart easily

I want to believe in you
I want to be as close as I can be
I want to hang on to you
And that is just the hardest thing for me to do
Believe in you
I want to be as close as I can be
I want to hang on to you
And that is just the hardest thing for me to do

08 · Bipolar

Baby, dry your tears and play your favorite song
The die is cast, ridiculed an labeled "weird" all along
For your cynicism is idealism turned upside-down
Crawl from the wreckage of your heart

Yes I know how you suffer
I have been there before
How do you know you are alive?
How do you know
If you've never been dead?

Hey,
How do you know you are alive?
How do you know you are alive?
How do you know
If you've never been dead?

The first to break the barricades, the last to fall
The night divides the day divides the night after all
We are damned to live our lives as sinners
That our innocence can shine
Collect the wreckage of your heart

Yes I know how much it hurts
I have seen it all before
How do you know what it's like to be free?
How do you know
If you've never been enchained?

Oh I know how you suffer
I have been there before
How do we know we are alive?
How do we know
If we've never been dead?

09 · Mystified

Some are weak, some are though
Some play coy, some like it rough
Some are hot, some are cool
I am wise, you were born a fool
You hated life, you complained every day
I love myself, I like my way
Wish you'd have put some extra time on the cuff
For all we wanted to do one life just wasn't enough

Some are mystified, some are blinded by the light
I can't sleep, you cannot wake up
Some step into daylight, some run away and hide
A heart that's not alive can never die

Some fall in-, some out of love
Some decline with thanks, some never get enough
Some are sweet, some are cruel
You bowed down, I was born to rule
Your image blurred as you came rushing by
You know you're not a bird, yet you wanted to fly
Couldn't control your compelling desire
No drug in this world can get me any higher

Some are mystified, some are blinded by the light
I can't sleep, you cannot wake up
Some step into daylight, some run away and hide
A heart that's not alive can never die

10 · Running All Night

Tell my beloved ones
I'm going home
It's been a long night
This time I go alone
The moon in the sky
Shall be my ally
The sun embraces me with golden light
It's to die for
To die for
To die for

I heard their laughter in the pouring rain
Joined in thereafter but they'd turn away
I was moving faster, running scared all right
Don't know what I was after
But I've been running all night

Mother, Father
Your son's coming home
It's been a wild trip
Deep into the unknown
The stars in the skies
Were faithful allies
As my soul moved on to greater heights
It's been to die for
To die for
To die for

My eyes swept over beauty words can't convey
Caused a supernova, drained the milky way
Born a loser, yet I'd win outright
I'm wet all over 'cause I've been running all night

I heard their laughter in the pouring rain
Joined in thereafter but they'd turn away
I was moving faster, running scared all right
Don't know what I was after
But I've been running all night

11 · Kamikaze

Augen auf
Alles läuft nach Plan
Was ich heute tu, hab ich auch gestern getan
Steh auf, wasch ein fremdes Gesicht
Mein Universum scheint im Gleichgewicht
Frei heraus, ich hör Dir zu
Sprech ich 'ne and're Sprache als Du?
Es ist die Stille, die Dich quält
Wir werden längst schon angezählt

Was Du findest, such ich nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Was Dich fesselt, hält mich nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Wenn Du träumst, dann wache ich
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Das Haus, das Du baust, bezieh ich nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht

Alles gut
Heut ist mein Tag
Ich glaub, dasselbe hab ich gestern gesagt
Kann es fühlen, gleich es ist soweit
Hab's kaum gesehn, ist es schon vorbei?
Aus dem Weg, aus meiner Bahn
Hin und wieder muss man selber fahr'n
Gleite hin auf göttlichem Wind
Vergess, dass wir nur Menschen sind

Was auch kommt, wie hart es trifft
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Was Dich frisst, dem schmeck ich nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Schlag nur zu, Dein Schwert zebricht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Woran Du hängst, daran erhäng ich mich
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht

Schön, so schön
Die Welt von oben zu seh'n
Schön, was so schön
Soll für immer sein, darf nie vergehn

Wirklich leben?
Das ist lange her
Hast 13 Autos, doch Du brauchst noch mehr
Kriegst nie genug, denn wer hat, der hat
Wirst immer fetter und doch niemals satt
Auf die Plätze
Jetzt gilt es, Mann
Rennst als Erster los und kommst doch niemals an
Abgenutzt vom Treten und Kriechen
Immer vorn und doch zurückgeblieben

Nach Eurer Pfeife tanz ich nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Was Euch lenkt, regiert mich nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Eure Schuhe passen mir nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht
Euer Design gefällt mir nicht
Mein Leben ist im Gleichgewicht

Wenn uns're Galaxie zerbricht
Mein Universum bleibt im Gleichgewicht
Wenn Du drückst, dann ziehe ich
Halt uns're Welt im Gleichgewicht
Was Du erschaffst, zerstöre ich
Bin stets bedacht aufs Gleichgewicht
Was Dich beherrscht, entmachte ich
Verliere nie das Gleichgewicht

12 · Bedbugs (A Modern Lullaby)

Good night, sleep tight
Don't let the bedbugs bite
Good night, sleep tight
Tender like the night
Good night, sleep tight
Don't let the bedbugs bite
Good night, sleep tigh
My arms right by your side
