01 · Instead of an Angle

A long, long time ago
A man with a dice on a chain
Had a dream
He had a feeling
He forgot long time ago
Nothing was predictable anymore
No control at all
This scared him so much
He reached for his dice on the chain
It used to calm him down
But not that time

From the sky
To the ground
Till the end
Of the moon
And the birth of a sun
Into your life
From a sight
To a view
Until the end
I will truly care
I will follow you

Instead of six walls
He found one
Instead of an angle
He found none
Instead of a top side
He could now choose how to hold it
And it never would stay
Where he put it
No control at all

He looked at the thing on his chain
A ball so round, so light, so blue
Loaded with anger and fear
He broke the chain
And threw this thing away
He awoke and grabbed for his dice
In which all his fears
Were locked away from the world
Except for six doors he left open

02 · The Future Is Now

This is for the love which never lived
For the ones who never found
For the boy who never loved
His fear was too strong
For the girl who never dared
'Cause the fist did not just hit the table

There is no future!
The future is now!
This is for the love
The future is now!

This is for the change
Everyone feels -
No one gave it a name -
Although it grows inside
This is for the time which never came
They always talked about it
Ideas follow existing ways

This is for the tear which never fell
The heart was caught in ice
The warmth was never there
And it had to feel alone
This is for the love who had to flee
'Cause hate likes to make deals
But they better start to run
'Cause the morning-sun will dry your tears
The morning-sun will dry your tears
Will dry you tears
Your tears
Tears

03 · Beautiful-Logic-Strings

My screams
Your love
Our ignorance
In a distance
As close as your love
A light so bright, so alive

The border to madness
Isn't far away, my friend
The tissue behind reality
Gives ideas which shine
Like stars today
From above but nowhere to go
Nowhere to go anymore

A thought creates a dragon
With me on a cliff
A last scream
I swallow the sun
So you don't get burned
You opened the door
You awoke the dragon
Just by curiosity
You came into this land
But you forgot
The questions in your heart

A further rotten sheep
Swallowed by a cow
A mad trick to cheat on life
An invention - to solve hunger
An invention - to solve pain
An invention - to heal the side-effect
Brick by brick the building grows
Higher and higher into the sky

I had to eat the sun - my friend
So you don't get blinded anymore
By your own mad dragon
Once you asked
Where is the key to your heart
Now I say
It's on the chain to your brain

04 · Dance in the Air

Further than the DNA
But nearer than your love
The smallest hell
Ever created
Just needs two
It just needs two
And one emotion
A destination
Never ending
Never reaching
Endless longing in motion
Open the door a little more

Take a look inside
It ends with your fear
To fall while falling with the fallen
A dance in the air with you
This is a neat little creation of yours
Thanks for asking me in
Without any question who I am

Further than the DNA
But nearer than your love
The smallest hell
Ever created
Just needs two
It just needs two
Like never ending
Endless motion
Never reaching love
Endless longing for you
Open the door a little more

05 · Fleischverstärker

Es beisst - wohin du auch fliehst
Es beisst - wohin du auch ziehst
Es beisst - es ist schneller als dein Ziel
Es beisst - denn du nimmst zu viel
Es beisst - und du wirst es niemals sehen
Es beisst - und du kannst es nicht verstehen
Es beisst - und ein Stück in dir fehlt
Es beisst - aber auch dieses Stück zählt
Es beisst

Es beisst - wohin du auch siehst
Es beisst - denn es kennt das Ende
Es beisst - lang' bevor du beginnst
Es beisst - nicht die Zeit, sondern du verrinnst
Es beisst - und du bist allein
Es beisst - und du siehst es nicht
Es beisst - der Schmerz wächst in dir
Es beisst - der Schmerz wird zum Tier
Und beisst

Es beisst - bevor du verstehst
Es beisst - auch nachdem du gehst
Es beisst - ein wenig tiefer hinein
Es beisst - sich fest in deinen Geist
Es beisst - du kannst nicht tiefer fallen
Es beisst - und es zieht dich heran
Es beisst - und es schaut dich an
Es beisst - wie es sonst niemand kann

Es verzehrt sich nach der Macht in dir
Denn alles, was du fühlst, gehörte ihr
Es wird niemals verstehen
Wie es ist, auf der Stelle zu stehen
Denn es wird vergehen

Es beisst dich nur zurück

06 · The Touch

Hidden within all neglections
Sits a feeling - left alone
Disenchanted by all around
You know what I mean

You know what I mean
Nothing seems to be
And everything is too
You know what I mean
You know what I do
You know what I see
You know what I feel
You know what you do
You know what I mean
Nothing seems to be
And everything is too
You know what I mean
You know what I do
You know what you do

Do you feel alone
Like nowhere is your home?
You think it alone
Do you feel alone
Like nowhere is your home?
A thought is the space between
Now here is a throne!

Hidden within all thoughts possible
Knees a feeling - left alone
Disenchanted by all around
Do you feel what I mean?
A thought is the space between

07 · Abyss

The ability to see makes me wonder
Whether there is a hole in the ground
Or in my mind
Like the hole inside my heart
It swallows anything which comes close
If we dare to look down
Something lives inside this hole
And it screams from time to time

Then it pulls me down
Into the absence of all sense
Asking all the questions ever asked
But it listens only to itself

So, I had to appear in a mirror
To the questions asked by no one
For the very first time this gave light
Into the darkness of the soul
Shattered dreams are the pillows
For the hurt one who lives inside this hole
And he screams from time to time
For the absence of sense - like in this rhyme
Which is a shrine for all the ones who see
The hole in his heart
Is the hole in the ground
Which was never there 'cause it ate itself
Within the answers always asked
It never dared to be
So it screams from time to time

08 · A.Dream

You pushed the button
We heard your call
Again and again
What is wrong with you my love?

Too much to do
Too much to take
Too fast to stay
Much more to get
Nothing to reach
No chance to see
No time to lose
Better not feel
The cold inside
Just kills another child
Just kills another child

Too much to do
Too much to take
Too fast to stay
Much more to get
Nothing to reach
No chance to see
No time to lose
Better not feel

What is wrong with you my love?
You left home at dawn
A misty cold morning long ago
Was the beginning of a dream
A nightmare yet, but still a dream
Of frozen stars and blood like ice
Left behind in the darkness exists no time

A dream of freedom, peace and love
Wake up, your nightmare became alive
The past drops into the future
Present feels like death without your love

Too much to do
Too much to take
Too fast to stay
Much more to get
Nothing to reach
No chance to see
No time to lose
Better not feel
The cold inside
Just kills another child
Just kills another child

What is wrong with you my love?
You left home at dawn
A misty cold morning long ago
Was the beginning of a dream
A nightmare yet, but still a dream
Of frozen stars and blood like ice
Left behind in the darkness exists no time

A dream of freedom, peace and love
Wake up, your nightmare became alive
The past drops into the future
Present feels like death without your love

What is wrong with you my love?
You left home at dawn

09 · The Present

A glimpse of reality
Makes you stop for a while
We chew on each other
Look what we do
Like there's nothing else to live for
Than the pain inside
A rainy day passes by
A day created by no one

You gave me a candy
Made of blood and tears
Everyday we chew
On each other's soul
We swallow the meaning
We ignore the reason

The taste is all we got
The taste is (fear)

But you go on
A voice in your head
Screams from a pain in your heart
It reminds dreams you once had
Back in time
A half is gone so what's left for me?
You filled it up
You gave the taste
Into the lake of blood and tears

10 · Chains

I saw your birth
I saw you crawling
Now I hear your screams
And I see you falling
Where is the beginning?
Where is the end?
Decisions were made
Now you depend
On moods of a child
Giving fear into the world

Day by day we struggle
We work hard for something we don't see
For something we don't feel
But we go on and on - day by day by day
(by day)

This thing isn't human
Although it's made out of them
It got a million eyes
And it never thinks until the end
It isn't a child
It's too big to be one
It's the ignored inside
Giving shape to a monster outside

11 · Your Tempting Fantasy

You knee in front of thee
You little wannabe
This is a last test
You thought you were the best
It looks into your eyes
Which used to hide your lies
They are so blue cold and empty
Then it touches your hair
And with a calm voice it will ask
Your final question

Do you feel
Do you think
Do you see
Do you hear
Do you know - love?
Was the beginning destination
And the reason for an end

You try to stay calm
The fear inside grows stronger
A hand on your cheek caresses your lips -
Which never kissed - but used to lie
They'll hide or change the truth no longer
No longer, no longer
As a hand slips now between your teeth -
Which just are white -
And used to bite the ones who gave you love
It forces and pushes your tongue
Slowly down your throat
You'll feel as if you inhale all your hate at once
It feels like a painful urge
When it grabs your lungs and slowly pulls them out
The same way you used to lie about -
Your feelings which you killed inside
So you got used to hate outside
You thought like this you rule the land
But look what I hold in my hand

12 · Echoes

I hear you say
We are the world
This world exists in our minds
Our minds express through our words
We live in a world of our thoughts
And words are what you want to say
But if you look into the eyes
Of a child right now
What do you see?

We are the soul of this world
Every single one of us
How to say it?
How to name it?
How to make it clear for you?
I hear you say
We are the world
But if you look into the eyes
Of a child right now
What do you see?

Can you see the echoes of your own questions?
Can you feel the waves arrive?
When you feel the echoes of your own questions
Can you give the answers now?

I hear you say
They are just clowns
But this word is in your mind
And just what is on your mind
Is what you gonna be
We are the soul of this world
Every single one of us
Is a reason to be born
And a chance to fall in love

13 · Schall und Rauch

Welchen Sinn hat die Musik? - noch
Ist sie hier und sie verklingt - doch
Sie ist in diese Welt geflossen
Wurde dann in Gold gegossen

Erschaffen, um dich zu erheben
Mussten wir dann miterleben
Wie entstellt, verdreht und dann gestutzt
Sie als Trugbild ihrer wird genutzt
Um dich zu lenken, dich zu locken
Deine Zweifel abzublocken

Hier ist das Wort
Geboren durch die Stimme
Durchquert es diesen Raum
Dann erreicht es dieses Meer
Das vibriert und versteht
Das Gefühl für die Welle
Die entsteht, wenn gehört
In dem Wort, das sich auflöst
Wenn gefühlt - ist das Wort
Geboren durch die Stimme
Durchquert es diesen Raum
Dann erreicht es dieses Meer
Das vibriert und versteht
Das Gefühl für die Welle
Die entsteht, wenn gehört
Durch den Mund
Der sich auflöst, wenn geküsst

(…um dich zu lenken, dich zu locken
Deine Zweifel abzublocken)
Denn nur folgen sollst du ihr
Und nichts erwachsen darf aus dir
Im Halbschlaf sollst du ewig bleiben
Denn nur so wirst auch du hier leiden
Für ein Ziel, das du nicht kennst
Und dich trotzdem dafür trennst
Denn du bist Mensch und du benennst
Wenn du erkennst, was dich durchschnitt
Nur durch dich lebte und gedieh
Und nach deiner Seele schrie

Sieh nicht nur zu - erkenne auch
Hör' nicht nur hin - verstehe auch
Ein Gefühl, das dich berührt und trägt
Ist heut' nur Schall und Rauch
'drum frag' ich dich: Glaubst du es auch?
'drum frage dich: Glaub' ich es auch?
'drum frag' ich dich: Glaubst du es auch?
'drum frage dich: Glaub' ich es auch?

14 · Merry-Go-Round-to-Hell

We're the children of the first-world
A livestock for consume and fuel for a machine
We think in circles directed by TV
We obey to numbers they tell us how to be

Round and round we go
To get a distance from what we know
We are the waste of this earth
Damned since our birth
This is a merry-go-round to hell
The keys got lost
It screams in our cell
More and more we seal
To get a distance from how we feel

We're locked into rooms
We burn for a machine
It feeds us but keeps us apart
Perception fixed into the past
We don't see a trap although it's vast

We move backwards into the future
Driven by needs we follow the order
If there is a free will still
We accidently kill
With all this distance
We see ourselves
Disconnected from any feeling
We are like the flies on the ceiling

15 · It's Spring

Spirit is like a finger in the paint of life
I'm writing something at your door
You have to come out to read what was written
At your door stands a person who looks like you
No sign - no letter - no message
Movement is a color and time a shape

To focus on - it needs time
To leave the own creation
Is a way to feel about sentences
Placed in your heart
Accepted as a law
To break your will - to give a choice
Which paint to use - which paint you use

To color the world
From outside the house
Of black and white nightmares
Planted long ago by the ones
Without a home in their hearts
They never read the message
Written on their doors
They never crossed the threshold
So the world outside is yours!

I'm writing something at your door
You have to come out to read what was written
At your door stands a person who looks like you
To focus on - it needs time
To leave the own creation
Planted long ago by the ones
Without a home in their hearts
And they never read the message
Written on their doors
They never crossed the threshold
So the world outside is yours!

And they never read the message
Written on their doors
They never crossed the threshold
So the world outside is yours!
