Smoke

We are addicted
Addicted to your habits
We are distressed when
You‘re not around

Keep the fire burning
Keep the smoke coming
(Smoke)

Our days are wasted
If we don’t receive your comfort
You cast a spell
You silence every sound

Brothers become enemies
Prepared for any felony
Craving for felicity
Ready for atrocity

You strike a match and you smile
And all I can do
Is smile together with you

You lace the wine with a single tear
You are the force I used to fear

The smell of gas is spreading
Yet all I can do

Is keep on smoking with you

Your eyes sparkle, you’re sincere
You are the force I used to fear

Lost in reverie
I dream of sights I will never see

We are enchanted
By your need of protection

Soft and fragile
Sensitive ground

Keep the fire burning
Keep the smoke coming
(Smoke)

We are bewitched
By your deep understanding
And we will defend

The security we found

(You silence every sound)

Brothers become enemies
Ready for atrocity

You strike a match and you smile
And all I can do
Is smile together with you

You lace the wine with a single tear
You are the force I used to fear

The smell of gas is spreading
Yet all I can do
Is keep on burning for you

Your eyes sparkle, you’re sincere
You are the force I used to fear

Lost in reverie
I dream of sights I will never see
I dream of words I will never hear
You are the force I used to fear

Travelling

Every day I travel

To keep my mind quiet in its cage
Every night I’m dancing
With the images I generate

What moves my soul ?
Where do I go ?

Restless I keep searching
To understand the madman’s heart

I’m wandering the streets of pain
Taking the confusion
Shed my skin, adore the rain
Merge in the illusion

There’s no use denying
The truth beyond our anxious lies
Paradise is fiction
And love’s a desperate compromise

We will burn
Feel the fascination
You will learn

I’m wandering the streets of pain
Taking the confusion
Shed my skin, adore the rain
Merge in the illusion

We’re walking down the streets of pain
Sharing the confusion
Leave your home, forget your name
Merge in the illusion

Exorcize

You eat the time

Spit out the seeds
You’re planting life

You speak the words
Control the beat
You’re an agent of change

Send out the light
Raging from the sky
Refine my vice

Absorb my fears
Brand me with your signs
We are partners in crime

Exorcize – No choice but to believe
I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize – I will not suffer

Exorcize – Raise your voice not to deceive

I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize – Rage will do no better

You dull my mind
You leave me blind
Define my course

You’re breaking news
You are on the scene
Our schedule is yours

You worked your way
‘Round the firewalls
Reverse the time

Absorb my fears
Brand me with your tears
We are partners in crime

Exorcize – No choice but to believe

I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize – I will not suffer

Exorcize – Raise your voice not to deceive
I turn to you and close my eyes
Exorcize – Rage will do no better

Without choice but to believe

Point Break

I’m dividing
Becoming two
One is trying to block out the noise
Shake off the demons
One just wants to come with you

I just can’t hear

I just can’t hear myself talking
There’s a noise
There’s a noise in my head

By the time you get this message
There will be silence

^back to top

Torn

I pose in foam
Attracting no one
I’m on my own
I’m torn
Forming extinct species
Just like my own
Naked to the bone
I’m torn

As white turns black I know
It’s light these pictures lack
A tree of life that has no leaves
I’m feeling grief beyond belief

As white turns black I know
It’s light these pictures lack
A tree of life that has no leaves
I’m feeling grief beyond belief

I smile at wine and downers
A blade, the phone
I’ll quit this all time low
I’ve sworn
My legs shape Vs and Ss
Amid the storm
From this sea of red
I’m born

Or torn?
Or am I?

As white turns black I know
It’s light these pictures lack
A tree of life that has no leaves
I’m feeling grief beyond belief

As white turns black I know
It’s light these pictures lack

A tree of life that has no leaves
I’m feeling grief beyond belief

If you love me you will find me

Dunnocks

Another boring day is close to the end
We share the last glass of wine

Much too tired to move, head on my hands
Avoid to look into your eyes

Let’s watch a movie, watch a comedy
Watch pornography
Fast food for our minds
The rich man’s far too fat
I don’t like his grin
But all the women try to mate with him

If we really share a functional design
An adapted mind
This might prevent our lives from parasites
Still, it’s a big waste of time

All the answers
To the questions
This protein structure asks
Play ‘hard-to-get’ and this is

Why we want them so badly
I’d like to regress
To an infant psyche
‘Feed me, feed me, feed me’

If we really share a functional design
An adapted mind
This might prevent our lives from parasites
Still, it’s a big waste of time

Hooked

Pounding heart you shake me
I have never been so close
To an earthquake
Take my word I’m trembling
For I know

What I have felt

Pounding heart believe me
Rain is sweeter than
The spring water fountain
Take my hand and lead me
To a place
For us to melt

Into one another

Think the inconceivable
Desire the untouchable

I’ve come to understand that bliss
Is quite impossible and if
I’ll ever find a way
I’ll claim another life

I’ve come to understand that kiss

Was quite impossible and if
I’ll ever find a way
I’ll halt the turn of time

Pounding heart awake me
I have never been so far
From the shore
Waves mount up around me
Still I don’t want to go back

Loving heart believe me
Your sincerity will
Give me the strength to
Work my way through the sea
Memorize the words you said

Think the inconceivable
Desire the untouchable

I’ve come to understand that bliss
Is quite impossible and if
I’ll ever find a way
I’ll claim another life

I’ve come to understand that kiss
Was quite impossible and if
I’ll ever find a way
I’ll halt the turn of time

Coward

Turn around…
Don’t be so stupid to believe
In what they say
Rest assured of that
They’ll get you out of the way

Don’t be so stupid to believe
In what you hear
Rest assured of that
They know no fear

How many sinners do you know like this?
Out of their minds

How many cowards do you know like this?

Out of their minds
No will to move

They’ll get you
Out of the way

How many sinners do you know like this?

They’ll get you
Out of the way

Rest assured of that
They’ll get you out of the way

Avalost

Slow motion movement
Into the light
Steadfast I walk

Into the brightest sight
Fusion of day and night
The stars are frozen
Layers of ice

Ice moving, peaceful
Exalted but quiet
The chill and the sea
Hurl back memories

Moments of clarity
You are caressing me

I’ve been travelling all night
To reach the coast of New Found Land
To meet the girl from my dreams
But she’s not there

I sit down by the sea
At the coast of New Found Land

And I dream, I dream
About leaving

I could smell you
Right through the walls
These were the days
Sedateness put in its place
With you I let go
Did you know?

I had a thousand lives
Now the count is down to one
Playing safe was fine
But I‘ll stake it all this time
As I wade in
The icebergs sing

I’ve been travelling all night
To reach the coast of New Found Land

To meet the love of my life
She’s not there

I sit down by the sea
At the coast of New Found Land
And I smile
As I dream
About leaving

Rome on Fire

I’m staring at the wall
Thoughts dried up like desert sand
I fall

Time means nothing anymore
The clocks have simply stopped
I drop

Curious child, shallow mind
When will we meet again?
And will we still be friends?

Check the footprints in the sand
It all got out of hand

Now you say it’s not yourself
You just turned to someone else

You are laughing
And you’re kissing me goodbye

Tousled playmates on the shelf
You keep shouting ‘Rome’s on fire’
Indifferent
But now and then
You panic for a while

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

You are no scientist

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…

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
