Diorama – Even the devil doesn’t care

My top 10 of favorite albums


Having listened to so much different music I’ve always ducked out of those blog meme’s where people tag you to make a top 10 list, it’s just not something I can shake out of my sleeve that quickly. This needs careful consideration and pondering. I don’t just want to grab the 10 albums I’m listening to the most at the moment, for it to be a real top 10 of my all time favorite albums I need to think long hard and include some music I might not have listened to in years but has still been influential. So here we are at last, my top 10 of all time favorite albums, maybe slightly colored by my current taste after all, but as complete as it’ll ever be.

Velocity

endless rows of boys and girls
spreading the news it’s better to let go
I’m involved in other lines
I guarantee there will be no excuse

loyalty to lunacy
turn into velocity and run
romeo against the wall
grant him no adrenaline at all
pull the trigger julia
grandiose there’s nothing more
to wreck
velocity
how can you expect me to come sober

when there are so many lovers in the parks
how can you expect me to come sober
with all the lifeless voices in my head
this is just a private war
I am stuck here nowhere else to go
pavloved insecurity
look at me this isn’t me out there
gliding flight identities
you must feel ridiculous right now

I am tired of being awake
close the case there’s nothing more to say
how can you expect me to come sober
when there are so many lovers in the parks
how can you expect me to come sober
with all the lifeless voices in my head

velocity

Last minute

nothing but sound
nothing but slumber
nothing but frenzy

nothing but rush
nothing but fever
nothing but seconds

choke on the fire – free for all times

nothing but pure
nothing but fragile
nothing but human

nothing but you
nothing but grateful
nothing but shameless

choke on the fire – free for all times

^back to top

Kiss of knowledge

tell me – where I may belong
yell at me – tell me what went wrong
consume me – swallow me whole
tell me – that it didn’t hurt

it’s not the truth until we start believing

hate me – make me feel adored
mistake me – stab my every word
confuse me – I’m afraid to think
believe me – until there’s nothing left

it’s not the truth until we start believing

promise me – maybe tomorrow

Howland road

yes to brides and yes to grooms
we all deserve champagne and caviar
freeze your motions realising
trembling here does not affect you
run for cover run for shelter

their demands are way too sober
trembling here does not affect you
Zittern hier betrifft dich nicht
can you see them waiting for you
mind-programming their seductions
like the tumours of your loved ones
all makes sense and emptiness remains

I’m drifting in a storm

behind my little window
can you see me?
can you see me?
I’m creeping under words
and riddles and aggressions
can you hear me?
can you hear me?

try your luck on unknown streets

so trembling here does not affect you
have another drink or two
so very nice so very nice
children killed by smoking drivers
cannot hug their orphan pandas
all makes sense it all makes sense
for trembling here does not affect you
‘ve been too sorry been too friendly
been too weak or been too normal

this was not expected from you
all makes sense and emptiness remains

I’m drifting in a storm
behind my little window
can you see me?
can you see me?
I’m creeping under words
and riddles and aggressions

can you hear me?
can you hear me?

so let your children entertain you
let your children entertain you

Staring

you’re a great comedian

you’re a sweet chameleon
like a tree in winter
just like a tree in winter

oh don’t stop staring
don’t stop staring

are you prepared to fall forever
we’re children with the souls of birds
and our thoughts are sunlight

and our thoughts are sunlight

oh don’t stop staring
don’t stop staring

and if anyone asks no we’re not here
let’s pretend that we are on our way
our roman theatres glow with sunlight
we could be there if you waited
for a little while

oh don’t stop staring
don’t stop staring

All that matters

I’ve got a question
what’s the price for some intimacy
I will pay

design your smiles and
please remember that the other ones
killed for less
who cares for freedom?
mute your lines for they’re not wanted here
anymore

it doesn’t matter
you stay the fusion of all I cried for

of all I wanted
it doesn’t matter
you stay the fusion of all I’m leaving
of all I disregard

a secret message
submerged in sweat in sighs and tenderly
overheard
come blow the ashes

in my direction I will glamorise
you for that

it doesn’t matter
you stay the fusion of all I cried for
of all I wanted
it doesn’t matter
you stay the fusion of all I’m leaving
of all I disregard

you must have noticed

Brainwashed

must I remind you of your choice
and the quality of smugness
is our joy a friend of fear
do we need a password here

double-check my storylines
there might be a sign of weakness
only fools repeat themselves
only fools repeat themselves

all your senses
jokes and dances
kill them all for you
kill them all for you

our rebels say
it’s not enough
our rebels blow themselves up
as winter comes
people will die
the new reality sinks in
emerge you giants
restore our green minds

our temple of dreams yes it’s true
change your life
rock for one last time
and all is just a click away

all your senses
jokes and dances
kill them all for you
kill them all for you

Home to millions

your wait – forever attitude
makes you a member of the club
obscene, naked as a worm
dressed like a president

are you alive?

where is your limit?
you sleep in her palace all the time
where is your limit?
and never wake up

your voice, to mad to be ignored
avoids their greedy smiles in bars
detentions cloaked in secrecy
good sense equals success

are you alive?
where is your limit?
you sleep in her palace all the time
where is your limit?
and never wake up

home!

she won’t be waiting in the rain

she’ll find her own way home
oh last remains of reality
it’s not what you want it to be

are you alive?
where is your limit?
you sleep in her palace all the time
where is your limit?
and never wake up

Forgotten

let the world collapse
pray it will be done in beauty
let the world collapse
pray it will be done in beauty
this one is real

growing sicker in perfection
just as you are
keep on cheering for the good ones

heroes are made not born
for the world you stay forgotten

this one is real
growing sicker in perfection

A few days off

tell the monsters
I gave up looking for reasons long ago
come and get me with guillotines
I will hope for new disasters
sick of sharing your fake orgasms
while you seem pretty tired

I’m your alien
come on join me

inhale the difference
carefully
you’re my saviour
come on save me
inhale the difference
carefully

tell the monsters
I’m disappearing to sense their dulling madness

no compassion
you will have to go on, go on without

I’m your alien
come on join me
inhale the difference
carefully
you’re my saviour
come on save me

inhale the difference
carefully

Pain management

how long have you been guarded
in frameworks to present you?
I need you as a target

my hollow arms defend you
my thoughts were never sleeping
you’ve got to triple-heal me
immune against the others
moving slow to feel me
you punish me with absence
all images inverted
you could be here to hear me
while every word is deserted

how long have you been guarded
in frameworks to present you?
I need you as a target
my hollow arms defend you
you could have taught me how to fight
to be upfront and say the truth
to overcome a lonely youth
to integrate and not to hide
to cogitate and redefine

the heroes I had trusted once
and idolised like setting suns
surrendering to their fading shine

spotlight on my swaying
let me freeze let me burn
quiet I’ll be quiet
howl me down howl me down

The convenience

I’m sorry that we didn’t know how sick you were
your world in brilliance did you cut yourself from there
to change your wild perspectives somewhere along the road
to dream of oceans till your head wants to explode

what is your substance?
what are you made of?

and all your grimaces like curtains on the wall
to guard against our eyes to nullify it all
your deepest wish directing dramas in your head
“leave your person and be someone else instead”

what is your substance?
what are you made of?

have I not deserved to grasp we’re perfect and complete

have I built these walls around us forever you and me
forever you and me
forever you and me

and all intelligence has to be left behind
to spend an evening without you on my mind
while you are better off with any of these pills
we keep on juggling animosities and thrills

we thought you were funny

what is your substance?
what are you made of?

have I not deserved to grasp we’re perfect and complete
have I built these walls around us forever you and me
forever you and me
forever you and me

can you pretend to be there and love to be alive

can you pretend to be there and love to be alive
love to be alive
love to be alive

Hla

they say your ailing doves get caught

they say her peace will make you weak
they now obtain your words by fraud
and modulate them as they speak

beyond her walls I shatter mine
towards her charming lies I crawl
her heart got sore as she found mine
into her liquid arms I fall

her noiseless treads delight my ears

I bury dreams along her shore
in radiant black her gliding tears
under her surface so much more

beyond her walls I shatter mine
towards her charming lies I crawl
her heart got sore as she found mine
into her liquid arms I fall

^back to top

E minor

finally contented soul
now did you lacerate
me long enough

while all enticing secrets
were slowly whispering
‘unearthly love’

the words I have the spells I know
were not enough to make you happy
to make you smile again

like roses your drugs in bloom
in psychic beauty
my frantic heart

I thought I saw you gloating over

my private inferno
you owe me answers

the words I have the spells I know
were not enough to make you happy
to make you smile again

the nights and days – in wasteful void
the glints of hope – as small defense
the smiles I faked – the blood I shed

my drifts of smoke – my 3 letter friends

the words I have the spells I know
were not enough to make you happy
to make you smile again

Advance

life-exhaling sleep petrified in marblelized composure

as I drown in her calm breathing
I start to live beyond her notions
faking balance – obvious easy

bright-inspiring dark
that is never to be brightened
sphinx-like stupid I surrender
poets comment poets never change
paralyzed with sadness here I am

carry me – anywhere and she´ll be waiting
let me be – resting by her patiently and
maybe she – will shatter all the truth inside my
agony – a promised word to save the silence

life-inhaling sleep
and above me heavens full of roses
full of orchids glittering in the moonlight
dream-absorbing stars reflect in her eyes

leave me very restless

carry me – anywhere and she´ll be waiting
let me be – resting by her patiently and
maybe she – will shatter all the truth inside my
agony – a promised word to save the silence

life-recovering sleep
revelling in self-contained illusions
illusive flowers obey the dawn

is it my way ramifying before me
paralyzed with sadness here I am

carry me – anywhere and she´ll be waiting
let me be – resting by her patiently and
maybe she – will shatter all the truth inside my
agony – a promised word to save the silence

Light

here you are with your story
and no one wants to hear
here you are with your fiction
and no one wants to see

except for you

and your light will it shine on

shine for you and me
and your light will it shine on
shine for you and me

and your sad unknown islands
waiting for your thoughts
on the horizon
and your vacant eyes beside me
just a breath away

won’t return my gaze

here you are

and your liberation
and your undulating dance
in tantalising slowness
and your distance that you chose
tell me did you find
all your explanations inside your

diorama

and your once invented grey
genius-like appearance
almost succeeded
and your soundless cries for more
anti-life will die
away unheeded

and your light will it shine on

Times galore

alive
within another brain
within another maze
a wonderful donation

I’ll throw it away

stone by stone
sit down and cure
forgotten fever

TIME – isn’t everybody equal?
TIME – doesn’t every angel fall?

try
to overcome your pride
confide in logical words

from false believers

who cares?
for you and I will once
flutter in these winds of scorn
while my little lake is so calm

TIME – isn’t everybody equal?
TIME – doesn’t every angel fall?
TIME – isn’t everybody equal?

TIME – doesn’t heal your wounds at all!

how could you know
I trust in friends that lie
I’m hunting shadows at night
while you can’t stay awake

I’ll throw it away
stone by stone
sit down and cure

forgotten fever

we’re lost in

TIME – isn’t everybody equal?
TIME – doesn’t every angel fall?
TIME – isn’t everybody equal?
TIME – doesn’t heal your wounds at all!

Hydro drugs

I came to stop the waves with all my might
the sea is bound to keep me warm tonight
dissolved into her tears I fill my head
with all the underwater words she said

embittered skies bejewelled with stars invite
the sea is bound to take my home tonight

in magnetising shades surreal her gloom
leaves my adoring eyes in faint delight

does she share your silence
as if she cared
she might know your violence
from anywhere

call me unbalanced insincere insane
my frowning face will still absorb her rain

I came to stop the waves with all my might
the sea is bound to keep me warm tonight

does she share your silence
as if she cared
she might know your violence
from anywhere

the dream flew down
down from heaven’s patience
to hope with us for miracles

exorcise our strong beliefs
give motives to our murders
and steal with us our miracles

photo-sensitized,
we’re in a daze of glory
and smiling bravely through our tears

in our gleaming eyes we feel now
from what we are distracted
and start to change our miracles

where are the suns
the violent storms we pray for

we all are out there
as we embrace our exile

we all are statues
and cannot turn to stone
we all are out there
our little islands we call home

we are the suns
the violent storms we pray for

we all are out there
as we embrace our exile

relieve our minds
carry on to save our angels
as we indulge our glowing pride

create our lives
direct us all again to paradise
and let us sleep in cooling winds

in our closing eyes we see now
from what we were rejected
and start to dream of miracles

Das Meer

Sehnsuchtsschwer am Boden
händeringend vor dem Sturm

Gedanken stumm vor Blindheit
Ziehen die Wolken vorbei

Das Läuten in der Ferne
Wie ein leiser Gruß der Sterne
Birgt Erinnerung an Ewigkeit
An Himmelstod

Lächeln sanfte Rückkehr
Tränenlos versinkend

Schau zurück friedvoll
wenn die Dämmerung erwacht

Vieles bleibt vergessen
verschwommen und zerschellt
an den leichten Momenten
dem Wellenschlage gleich
überm Meer

Das Meer verlassen über dem Ursprung des Seins

Tauch in das Meer laß Dich treiben
Es ist Jahre her

Das Meer verlassen über dem Ursprung des Seins
Tauch in das Meer laß Dich schweben
Es ist Jahre her

Laß Dich fallen in bodenlose Tiefen
Ruhe und Wehmut umgeben Dich leise
Sieh Dich fliegen doch Deine Flügel

Sind müd und schwer überm Meer

Sehnsuchtsschwer am Boden
Händeringend vor dem Sturm
Dein Schweigen wird mir fehlen
Und in Endlichkeit erwacht
Das Meer verlassen über dem Ursprung des Seins
Tauch in das Meer laß Dich treiben
Es ist Jahre her

Das Meer verlassen über dem Ursprung des Seins
Tauch in das Meer, laß Dich schweben
Es ist Jahre her

Wingless

define your demon and be precise
impending wars now sharpen your eyes

regeneration from now to then
for time will limit itself again

my aim -disprove you- lacks irony
your wisdom even extends to me
are you nervous needless to say
what’s black tomorrow is pale today

give wings to my words and let them fly
to spheres I know of and wonder why

dumb words in silence might now confess
you had hoped for nothing and still got less

draw a picture in case it helps
of all vague faces I call myself
give it details turn it real
I can’t remember how colors feel

I’ll give you shelter I’ll give you peace
a handful water instead of seas

for any reason that is unfair
and for a smile that I’ll never share

I’ll give you shelter I’ll give you peace
a handful water instead of seas
for any reason that is unfair
and for a smile that I’ll never share

draw a picture in case it helps
of all vague faces I call myself

give it details turn it real
I can’t remember how colors feel

don’t give up

Logic friends

I can see you trough the wall
frozen in a monologue
all your dirty little secrets
almost every night

a thousand arctic eyes are weeping
only heard as echoes
numbing every other sound
all the symphonies of night

all their hands are reaching out
to draw the conscience off from my soul
to lure my viscious sanity
into the running river

oh you hearts so warm and true
let me sleep without fear
a last chance to listen
to the longest blackest night

aaah stay my logic friend forever

as our city lost its name
we have all been drunk and dazed

close to turn invisible
so tireless so true

in the disappearing night
in the brillance of your gaze
let your star keep me on course
wipe me out I’m the mistake

aaah stay my logic friend forever

all my logic friends come on my logic friends
come on my logic friends come on my logic friends
all my logic freinds come on my logic friends
come on my logic friends come on my logic friends

the city has lost its name
so tireless and true
the city has lost its name
so fare you well my friend

there is nothing but ice all around
learn to be invisible
the city has lost its name

The girls

who blurred my view on islands even
trough the lsd

bombay blue dry sapphire fuel me further
fuel me further
I surf the wave of shame I laugh and say
you’re something else
I sing the cowards gospel black jack dance
on jukebox rotation

fuel me further

beyond the borderline you might get hurt

and I’m the reason
beyond the borderline I never said
we could afford it

the plan the origin of cocaine
glamour pussy dreams
the cut the dead-end-road the
hidden hunger phantom voice

the mind-corrupting lips the

outsider outsider
I’ll walk my own walk fuck the
talk what’s wrong with me
what’s wrong with…

fuel me further

loss enough for now loss enough for now
don’t start to cry don’t start to cray

the night the girls
have left forever

borderline complex

to think is not the way
to feel is not the way
th choke is not the way
to try is not the way

to run is not the way
to sneak is not the way
to faint is not the way
to starve is not the way

fuel me further

to speak is not the way
to scream is not the way
to lie is not the way

to fuck is not the way

to trust is not the way
to risk is not the way
to love is not the way
to hate is not the way

to burst is not the way
to freeze is not the way
to leave is not the way

to dream is not the way

Dear brother

I am your doubt
your constant sin

the swollen shape
of your regrets

you make your way
to where I am
as you remain
inside the cold white room

brother shoot me down
kill me from within

brother shoot me down
kill me once again

I am the void
carved in your face
all eyes and ears
are bouncing off

don’t let a sound
seep through the wax

you left a friend
inside the cold white room

brother shoot me down
kill me from within
brother shoot me down
kill me once again

I’m the hurrican
in your water glass

stir me
stir me

I am your first step
into no man´s land
walk me
walk me

brother shoot me down
kill me from within

brother shoot me down
kill me once again

Helmets down

brother are you safe where you are
beyond the exit signs beneath the trap doors
the youthful dream is always sent to sleep

behind a wall in a cold white room

brother there is nothing left to fear
no entwined opacity no regretting
all that we’ve been all we could have been
remains unharmed in a cold white room

helmets down we’ve lost the war
it’s not my fault I’ve been to far away

brother are you safe where you are
all the exit signs all the trap doors

behind a wall in a cold white room

helmets down we’ve lost the war

Friends we used to know

in emergency
I fire my thoughts at you
responding or not maybe
reacting or not you’ll be

turn around now
she’s killing with looks at ease
defending or not maybe

depending a lot I’ll be

and as we get lost deliver our souls
to each other we lose control
and start to bother about friends
we used to know

and as we get lost inside this dream
with each other nobody sees
or seems to notice that we’re losing

what we´re fighting for

while the moments pass
I watch every move you make
betray us or not who cares
surrender the heart that tears

as I catch your breath
you stand there and watch me bleed
we’ll blend into one maybe

but never apart you’ll see

turn around now

Someone dies

am I talking? are you paying attention?
are these question to be asked
whe someone dies?

am I describing a picture that’s
slowly fading
and are we paling along these
fields of grey?

the play goes on
and my eyes will beam with gladness
what can be done
to fill the rigid rooms with movement?

have you been wrong
to just stop breathing without cause?
when all is gone
can I choose to follow you?

what else can be done?
you stare into the depth
if there lies a ground if there was
an eruption if it’s too late

you cry yourself pale you shine
what can be done?

the play goes on

what brought us here? are we in need of help?
are we drunk enough to fit into the scheme?
am I steady? do I look consistent?
have we amassed enough insignificance?

the play goes on

Random starlight

random starlight meets a blind eye
seeking undiscovered self-importance
pleasant distance finds me still
slighly awaiting what is getting closer

the radio directs the hunters
into the shark aquarium
mother ship we’re doing fine
but somehow we lost contact

noble fractions out of
vague distractions
blurring relevance of
many details

the radio directs the hunters
into the shark aquarium
mother ship we’re doing fine
but somehow we lost contact

an overdose of frequency
a random line to lead the lost
the radius was not defined
and somehow we lost contact

as if it’s slowing down the fall

Prozac junkies

different light different meaning
not imagined not unreal
don’t quit the friendship I’ll agree
prozac junkies like you

prozac junkies like me

no control no reservation
auto pilots by themselves
the invisible enemy
prozac junkies like you
prozac junkies like me

give us the needle
take control

give us the needle
lead us to believe we’re loved
prozac junkies always find a way
prozac junkies always find a way

I’m the origin drawing lines
from the mirror to the stars
vectors through infinity
and we’ll be living on love

give us the needle
take control
give us the needle
lead us to believe we’re loved
prozac junkies always find a way
prozac junkies always find it’s better like this
better like this better like this better this
better like this better like this better this

it’s better like this

give us the needle
take control

if only I could calm the dogs between my temples

and there is nothing you can change
there is nothing you can do
just wait until it’s over

wait until it’s over

Unzerstört

Will ich dich vergessen?
Oder selbst vergessen sein?

Treibe ich taumelnd dir entgegen?
Unzerstört und nicht allein?

Ich leih dir mein Licht, ich leih dir
mein Leben, vergiss mich nicht.

Was nicht besteht ist nicht zerstörbar,
nur allein sein geht nicht.

Der Zusammenbruch ist nie passiert.
Ich bin bei dir, ich bin bei dir.
Der Zusammenbruch ist nie passiert.

Ich bin bei dir, ich bin bei dir.

Betäube mich zur Unkenntlichkeit,
verbleie mich ganz im Rausch.

Nie zuvor war ich dir näher,
nie zuvor habe ich gelebt.

Der Zusammenbruch ist nie passiert.
Ich bin bei dir, ich bin bei dir.

Der Zusammenbruch ist nie passiert.
Ich bin bei dir, ich bin bei dir.

Sinnlos denke ich und bin ersetzt. Sinnlos denke ich

Champagne for all

it is not that I cannot deal with it
or bear the punishment

give me the bullet I deserve
but it wasn’t my idea
there is no room for error
in a balanced house of cards
how the hell did it collapse
there was no wind at all

someone must have cut the leash
to corrupt the entertainment

maybe it was me
but it wasn’t my idea
northern light mentality
deadened inconceivable
I really try to feel ashamed
but i feel nothing at all

take a drag take a drag
may it stick inside your throat

may it cause you to forget
but it wasn’t my idea
be aware of me again
switch of your smile
delete the file
and look at me again

champagne for all
champagne for all

add your insanity to mine
and maybe there’s a way
maybe we’ll be safe

my desire is your desire
only in a different shape
a feedback in the matrix
but it wasn’t my idea
the mask is nice to wear

extremely accurate
und du weißt nicht
mit wem du sprichst
und nichts ist wie es scheint

these drops are killing me
how come they taste so sweet
what a meaningless joke
(but it wasn’t my idea)

take a drag take a drag
may it stick inside your throat
may it cause you to forget
but it wasn’t my idea
be aware of me again
switch off your smile
delete the file
and look at me again

champagne for all
champagne for all
add your insanity to mine
and maybe there’s a way
maybe we’ll be safe

all I am is the observer
of the total dissolution
of my ability to feel

but it wasn’t my idea

Odyssey into the vacuum

integraded landslide
paler state of mind
exhausted by rebellion
that isn’t one

a sculpture of a menace
in company of fever
laugh about your prudence
only if you can

and the panic is ready to attack

lock yourself in silence
a noise of any colour

comfortable cohesion
it’s so much fun

harboured in the limelight
ravaged by normality
the world is yours to shun
quit thinking when you´re young

and the panic is ready to attack

my silent odyssey
into the vacuum
make me forget this world
lead me to another one

my swaying odyssey
into the vacuum
make me reflect this world
throw me off I am almost there

you never disappoint me
conscienciously arranged
the ways you paralyse me
and you just begun

like sorrow with a compass
dissolving into laughter
a wreck of fond affection
the error is creeping on

and the panic is ready to attack
I got you
and I don’t need anything else

I don’t care
I am not responsible
I wasn’t there
I was not responsible

let’s stare each other down
I bet I can stare you down

force – counterforce
to create a universe
here and nowhere else
to escape a universe
here and nowhere else

I hear the drums

coz it’s not shown it won’t
be seen
by noone
the prison guards will keep
your records safe
inside their pockets
keep your pages blank

keep your screen empty
your thoughts tied to the tracks

coz it’s not shown it won’t
be seen
by noone
the prison guards will live
on your addiction
to analyse everything

analyse everything
analyse everything
analyse to keep them satisfied

I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost

I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost
I’m not yet lost I’m not yet lost

I hear the drums
I’m not yet lost

Two boats

two boats struggle for balance
in a weightless field of trance

sway to stay protected
vanish never to return

I’m lost to the world
take me home don’t take me home

two boats ravaged by shockwaves
cover traces of rebellion

spirits who know gladness

live beyond the prison wall

I am in here waiting
frozen in a monologue

I am out there waiting
in search of undiscovered skies

take me on take me on
I am the cause I’m not the cause

take me on take me home

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
