Kinder und Sterne küssen und verlieren sich Greifen leise meine Hand und führen mich Die Traumgötter brachten mich in eine Landschaft Schmetterlinge flatterten durch meine Seele In der Mitternacht The paradox of our minds Too much to believe, too much to deny You fool me again to quiet my pride But I’m a human, I come with knives I never promised you an open heart or charity I never wanted to abuse your imagination I come with knives I come with knives And agony To love you The monotony And the rising tide Is under my skin, is crawling inside Adrenalin to rewire my mind I’m only human, I come with knives I never promised you an open heart or charity I never wanted to abuse your imagination I come with knives I come with knives And agony I come with knives I come with knives To love you With agony Kinder und Sterne küssen und verlieren sich Greifen leise meine Hand und führen mich Die Traumgötter brachten mich in eine Landschaft Schmetterlinge flatterten durch meine Seele In der Mitternacht

Sorrow 04:42
My Northern heart weighs like a stone And the burning sadness has become my home The tortured world wants me to hate But there’s a world inside Where my love can bury my rage Every second I disappear I feel my senses dying In the mountain stillness I hear Hollywood coyotes crying Sorrow, you are my light Everything my heart desires Show me your beautiful anger Sorrow, keeping me sane You turn my nights into days I love your beautiful anger When I am tempted to give up And the winter’s drowning me with memories and loss I leave my hungry mind outside ‘cause there’s a beauty inside And sorrow is fueling my fire Every second I disappear I feel my senses dying In the mountain stillness I hear Hollywood coyotes crying Sorrow, you are my light Everything my heart desires Show me your beautiful anger Sorrow, keeping me sane You turn my nights into days I love your beautiful anger Every time that I feel My empire beneath my feet Crumbling – anger

We are all insane Counting down every single living day We are prisoners of fate I smile at the way everybody accepts the pain Just because I don’t care doesn’t mean I don’t feel Just because I don’t feel doesn’t mean I don’t understand We are one in the unified field We are one in the unified field We are not in the dark Our animal anger is eating our human hearts How come everything hurts when nothing lasts? I smile at the way everybody lives in the past Just because I don’t care doesn’t mean I don’t feel Just because I don’t believe doesn’t mean I don’t understand We are one in the unified field We are one in the unified field (Everybody loves Everybody leaves Everybody hurts Everybody heals Everybody needs) We are all the same Counting down every second every living day We are prisoners of fate I smile at the way everybody accepts the pain I don’t care I don’t believe But I feel, I feel
4.
The virgin anger and the will to power The secret fire of the human form Burning water, vitriol Mercury rising above us all The dissolving and binding Wearing the crown in the fold My coarse heart swallows everything up Like a black hole In the adrenalin room At the back of my head There’s a locked up box And people kissing everywhere
5.
There was light before the rain began And there was hope behind the suffering joke Lies come, lies they go, even the sun is tired Under the surfaces, there is a benevolent drone Do you feel it? So brutal when the words are on The tip of your tongue So strange when your tired eyes won’t Shut your brain down Hold back the melancholy Hold back the fear Darling, it’s a crime Hold back the fear Hold back the melancholy It’s a crime Sometimes I can taste my death like a candy bar So sweet and complete, as infinity takes me -but before that- I create to keep that dog at my bearable door I’m a hologram in my egocentric universe, oh You’re alive but you know that the wire Under you is bending And the truth is only telling you to be Immune to everything Hold back the melancholy Hold back the fear Darling, it’s a crime Hold back the fear Hold back the melancholy It’s a crime Hold back the fear Hold back the darkness Hold back the melancholy It’s a crime
6.
You were lying naked in my arms We were making memories You were beating breath into my lungs Like a nuclear looped-up drum We burned our bridges We loved under atomic skies Rejoiced in the hopeless We loved under atomic skies We were looking for something to believe We were looking for something to understand Our twisted sense of loyalty Was getting so out of hand We burned our bridges We loved under atomic skies Rejoiced in the hopeless We loved under atomic skies

Screams 03:45
Every night she closed her eyes Every night she turned afraid When the sex dripped on her lips mixed with the teardrops Daddy’s little girl became erased When she crawled across the sheets onto the A-list The attention took her tension away In the company of wolves there is no sympathy We feed on the remains And I hear screams I hear screams, like a victim for the first time I hear screams, I hear screams In the City of Angels she lay Skin soaked in the chlorine and the cocaine No love will sail her over this dirty ocean If she returns, she returns to pain For her the safest place is here Between the porno and the comfort of her deepest fears In the strobe light we embrace her like prey She just rises into the aether [She’s dancing in the darkroom Unfolding her feathers Unlocking her secrets She’s dancing in the darkroom] And I hear screams I hear screams, like a victim for the first time I hear screams, I hear screams Wake up, daddy’s little girl

Come Home 03:54
I let you go I saw the signs You were so cold I was unkind You turned my lies Into your lust Now I just can’t disguise My failure to forget this stuff, because Our little world is only big enough for us Come home I’ve lost the will to go on alone Come home I don’t know what you want but I know that you need to be loved The desert skies Will cry for us In the land of forgotten smiles Died our forgotten trust The old desires Burned in the sunshine and All the years of our tender highs Blown away by our tender disunion And I will always be here to hear you in the place where you belong Come home I’ve lost the will to go on alone Come home I don’t know what you want but I know that you need to be loved
9.
Shine razor eyes before the walls come down Wilder than lions, louder than sound Oh the birds and the bees are getting older now There’s a cold breeze blowing over my soul Shine razor eyes in delight Shine razor eyes before you die Shine razor eyes in this light There’s a cold breeze blowing over my soul I’m tired of this human duet No civilising hides Our animal impulses
10.
We were born into this fools world And we will die before we play the game So many blows ripping apart our gentle souls And shudder ‘cause I know what I don’t want to know And it’s killing me killing me laughter Wanna wash those smiles away Oh it’s killing me killing me slowly Wanna wash those smiles away I walk with the noise It’s reaching out to me I talk to the world Face my devils When I’m losing my touch – the terror, the terror I walk with the noise Face my devils Propaganda is in our flesh and blood And we rejoice in the control of others Euphoria – poison in the minds of the future And it is turning our kids to murder, to murder
11.
Turn the bad blood into good Bring the laughter, bring the love Drink again ’cause everyone forgets In the land of broken promises I walked the streets of Vegas I walked ’til I was blind Something was shining on me – promises “Anything you want, anything you desire” I soon became the servant A blissful blank canvas mind Something was shining on me – promises “Anything you want, anything you desire” Turn the bad blood into good Bring the laughter, bring the love Drink again ’cause everyone forgets In the land of broken promises The gambling hungry eyes The cocktail hours and neon lights Something was shining on me – dollar signs “Anything you want, anything you desire” You know I wanna disappear but I just can’t hide The American Dream is in every die Something is telling me I’m out of time “Anything you want, anything you desire”
12.
Trials 03:52
Every morning I feel it Kicking inside me Telling me I’m no good at all Though I hear the voices I recognise them They are the demons in us all I wake up hot, I wake up cold But my trials are my friends Every little flaw digging in my soul But my trials are my friends I can only win in the end My trials are my friends
