Transformer

Wake up, wake up
You cannot stay
We have just removed an A-Port
From your brain
All these years
A string of lies
A perfect blue print
Open your eyes

[Transformer]
You are no scientist
You’re not an amorist
[Transformer]
Those lifelines don’t exist
Welcome to square zero
[Transformer]
You’re no protagonist

You are no gentleman
[Transformer]
(Don’t) Recite your name again
Welcome to square zero

Get up, get up
It’s time to go
You will soon feel somewhat better
Take it slow

Don’t be embarrassed
That’s O.K.
And for the record
It’s a beautiful day

[Transformer]
You are no scientist
You’re not an amorist
[Transformer]

Those lifelines don’t exist
Welcome to square zero
[Transformer]
You’re no protagonist
You are no gentleman
[Transformer]
(Don’t) Recite that name again
Welcome to square zero

Contact

I pretend to walk
I pretend to breathe
I know you understand
You always did

You prefer to talk

(And) I pretend to listen
Three and counting
I’m still waiting

I just want to fly
The morning sun is shattered
The smile is gone
Frozen liquid carving stone

It’s time to close our eyes

As we pretend to care
I keep still
Accrete the silence you don’t fill

I’m so glad that you can’t read my mind
We spend a little time
Exchanging words and maybe
What you’d call emotion

But I’m so glad that you can’t read my mind

I never meant to hurt
Still I’m spinning like a
Roundabout in motion
(Deceptive detachment … from this world)

An echo from afar
The signal is too weak
I know you understand
You always did

You pretend to bide
So I pretend to smile
Three and counting
I’m still waiting

I just want to fly
The medium is shaking
Your voice is low
Melting shadows burning snow

It’s time to close our eyes
Forget what we were told
I keep still
Embrace the silence you don’t fill

I’m so glad that you can’t read my mind
We spend a little time
Exchanging words and maybe
What you’d call emotion

But I’m so glad that you can’t read my mind
I never meant to hurt
Still I’m spinning like a
Roundabout in motion
(Deceptive detachment … from this world)

The more you want to feel free
The deeper your roots need to be

Soul Diver

Nevermind
You just hurt someone you cared for
You and I
Separate lives I know
Still I spy
Though I know that it is over

Nevermind
This is how it’s going to feel

Change your mind
Act unpredictable
It’s effective
Believe me – I
Took control
Felt the power

Enjoyed the pain
Pandorus

Nevermind
I just hurt someone I cared for
You And I
Forever lost

When the hurting starts
When the feeling stops – we die

Yet summer comes
No matter what I say

When the hurting starts
When the feeling stops – we die
Will you care for me?
Soul diver – Trading life for identity

Nevermind
You And I

Believe Me…
Believe Me…

Digital

She was attracted to trouble
Angel at risk
I met her in the summer

She was cheerful
Outgoing, I guess
She was hurt when she was little
At heart she remained a child
She talked too loud in public
But she tasted like candy
Orange-cream candy

I took her to the forest

I tied her to a tree
I monitored the action
At night I kept her company
I took her to the forest
I tied her to a tree
I took all the photos
Digital treat
For people like me

I took her to the forest
I tied her to a tree
I monitored the action
It’s astounding
How ruthless we can be
I took her to the forest
I tied her to a tree
I took all the photos
Digital candy

For people like you and me

I took all the photos
Digital treat
For people like me

Digital candy
For people like you and me

Poisonous Friend

You frighten me
You spy on me
You’re scaring me
You care for me

I have a poisonous friend
She’s living in the house

She likes to move on bare skin
She knows my body inside out

I don’t recall when this affair began
She was simply there
Now I am shaken by the fear she could assault me
But I must not show it, not to her

Sometimes I watch her kill
Cold eyes and no restraint

And I wonder how it feels
To annihilate a friend

You frighten me
It’s getting harder to conceal
You spy on me
All my secrets are revealed

You’re scaring me
A play on words for us to see

You care for me
I find this harder to believe

^back to top

Seperation

I want to kill all contact
Slam another door
Third class substitutes, you

Are not welcome any more

If I leave this world today
I do it for protection
For shelter
Protecting you from me
You will understand
You will understand
Eventually

Torch

Say goodbye to gravity
Say goodbye to sanity

A ray of hope
Down to the wire
(Gone, gone)

Hand me a match
This is a story about fire

One by one
We sacrificed our pawns
For our queen
To play her way
Rooks and knights
Built a solid wall

For her protection

One by one
We couldn’t go on
To keep the balance between
Madness and affection
Our queen enchanted everyone
Fatal play
One night

Our queen just walked away

Everytime we managed to calm down again
You returned with more poison
Everytime we managed to navigate a while
You filled our souls with more outrage

(Torch)
When the sirens broke down
We were still here

(Torch)
Igniting more fires
To burn down every
Responsibility

(Torch)
When the towers collapsed
You whispered my name
Princess of fire

Desire
I do remember you

Darkness comes
At nightfall
This place is quiet and abandoned
Smoke and ember
Attest to what we had
Now checkered wasteland

One by one
We sacrificed our pawns
To please our queen
Fulfill her desire
Our walls have fallen
Treasures stolen
Our queen is long long gone
And I dream of fire

Go International

Go international
Come together

Japanese killer
In a German car
Two model wanna-be’s

By his side
Iranian target
An American bar
Enjoys his final blow-job
And French wine

Go international
Come together
Go international

(With a triumphant smile)
Come together
(Try to stay alive)

South-American poetry
Never worked for me
Italian pornography
Sometimes did
Your longing for integrity

Never worked for me
I need incongruity
To stay alive

Mysteries and twists
Make for a far more
Interesting existence
And thoughtful state of mind

Go international

Come together
(State of mind)
Go international
(With a triumphant smile)
Come together
(Kill)

Watching Over You

From the ice, the blinding white
A schooner’s gliding through the night
Angry sea, we sail alone
At last I’m going home

I’m going home

Phantoms lured me off my course
Tried to kill the man I was

You sent a guiding light
Lead me to my lavish bride

To the crag that braves the tide
To the beacon in the night
I trust in you (and)
I’m watching over you
To the souls that crouch in fear
To the ghosts that disappear

I trust in you (and)
I’m watching over you

To the crag that braves the tide
To the beacon in the night
I trust in you (and)
I’m watching over you
To the souls that crouch in fear
Your ghosts will disappear

I trust in you (and)
I’m watching over you

Seasons change, this time for good
Be this message understood
You’re the house I occupy
You’re the only reason why

I’m still alive

Icarus

Your purchase is a contract
Your life is on hold
Underneath the paint you’re rotting
You can’t fool them anymore

You proclaim the obvious

You stopped praying to the gods
I tried to pray for you
But there’s nothing I can do
Nothing I can do
