Victim

Ref. :
Babe, your words are killing me,
don’t cover me with hurt.
I’m not your enemy,
love can be so absurd

Strophe 1:
You’re the one that gives me so much
I can’t believe, that you are true.
When I recieve a smile from your face
for me, the whole world’s born anew.
I try to give you what you want to,
but what I try, it isn’t right.
For all my faults, I have to pay for
and punishment follows on side.

Strophe 2:
I’m so glad, that I once met you,
life was grey, before you came.
And I hope that you are glad too,
but I’m not sure, you feel the same.
You don’t know how good It feels,
that I am allowed to love you
noone else will ever see
the shiny halo there above you.

Strophe 3:
What I need, I know the best,
they all don’t know, what’s good for me.
Feelings can’t be put in words,
but I’m not blind, I still can see.
Although sometimes it is not easy
walking through the brushwood of you moods,
but when you put your arms around me
everything seems to be good.

Ende:
I trust you
I believe everything you say
You promise me love
I will promise you everything
I don’t know how to thank you
for all that you have given to me
So insn’t it natural, that I make some
Sacrifies on our altar of love
The love that will last forever
I hope it will……………will it?

Them

Refrain:
And lays like a pestilence
over them,
and they wonder
why it smells!

Strophe 1:
And the decay
crawls out off them.
From their eyes,
when they stare at you.
From their ears,
when they listen to you.

Strophe 2:
And they scream: “Where’s this god?“
From their mouth, And they don’t feel him.
when they babble at you. He’s already in them,
In the inside of their purse
and they search for new gods,

Strophe 3:
And they’re amused with nothing, ´cause nobody told them:
but they think, they’ve got everything. ignorence, decadence
And they don’t understand very much, and, at last, stupidity!
´cause there’s not much to understand.
And they don’t think very much,
´cause there’s not much to think about.

Strophe 4:
Dancing with their friends,
They call it culture, going wilder and faster
they are pretty amused. and one of them falls down,
the others dance him to mash
his arms, his legs, his head,

Strophe 5:
They smile while they’re listening, and finally his guts and his brain,
but nothing remains in their heads. Pretty amused now,
They smile while they’re watching, ´cause there’s more place!
but they close their eyes.
And they smile when you speak,
but they only mumble.
And aou are condemned
to live among them!

Stern

Refrain 1:
Ich blicke auf die Welt hinab
von meinem kleinen, leeren Stern.
Herunter schau ich in ein Grab,
bin zum Glück so weit so fern.

Strophe 1:
Voll Schmerz betrachte ich die, die ich einst geliebt habe.
Bei ihrem Anblick vermischt sich Verzweiflung mit Zorn,
als ich bemerke, welche Kälte ihnen entströmt.
Ist Vergessen so leicht, wie es zu sein scheint?

Strophe 2:
Ohnmacht füllt meinen Kopf aus, wird stärker und stärker,
bis sie mir schließlich die Schläfen zu zertrümmern droht.
Meine Hände greifen ins Leere, genau wie meine Gedanken,
ich kann nichts machen, außer Tränen zu vergießen.

Strophe 3:
Verachtung keimt in mir empor und lässt mich lächeln,
als ich die Würmer, die dort kriechen, beobachte.
Voll Spott entsinne ich mich der Vergangenheit,
und kann das Gefühl des Neids doch nicht ganz unterdrücken.

Strophe 4:
Ein wilder weißer Vogel breitet seine Schwingen aus,
erhebt sich aus dem tristen Grau, das ihn umgibt.
Auf halbem Weg zu mir beginnt sein Federkleid zu bluten,
fällt von Ihm ab, so dass er auf dem Grund zerschellt.

Refrain 2:
Ich blicke auf die Welt hinab
von meinem nachten, kalten Stern.
Herunter schau ich in ein Grab,
und läge selbst darin so gern…

Involuntary traveller

Refrain:
I’m flying through the air, noone ever flys through.
I’m walking through woods, noone ever walked.
I’m swimming in oceans, noone will swim in.
…I’m gliding away, I’m gliding away…

Strophe 1:
I see your hair, but it’s just nothing.
I see your eyes, but it’s just nothing.
I see your lips, but it’s just nothing.
I see you, but you’re unreal.

I’m just sitting there in black emptyness
and can’t stop the bleeding of my heart.

Strophe 2:
And as I stand at the nightmare river
and silver moonlight falls on my lost illusions,
a great black unicorn comes flying through the air,
with you on it’s back.

And I can’t move, when it steals my heart
and you are still laughing.

Strophe 3:
Now I’m swimming in my sea of blood
with thousands of sharks around me.
They try to get my body,
but my body is stronger than they are.

So they try to get my mind,
and they get it.

Strophe 4:
And I ask myself : What is love ?
And I ask myself : What is life ?
And I ask myself : What am I ?
And now I find any answers,

but noone else will understand.
Only someone who’s waiting beyond the fog.

Religion

Strophe 1:
To forgive and forget
when all ideals turn to ashes
so easy to decide
but not to execute.

To forgive and forget
while the demons are still dancing
violated by nature
and raped by faith.

And everything that I see
are green and red colours
changing immediatly
into different shades of grey.

Wandering alone
through dreams of disillusions
searching for a sign
and starving for belief.

Refrain:
Unable to move
I´m lying bounded on the ground
with calm in my eye
and fire in my head.

Unable to move
I´m hiding from my destiny
with dreams in my soul
and pain in my past.

Break:
I will not say
I´m unwilling to change my view
I´m unable to act like a human
Unhappy to think like a slave

But then I agree
to unagreeable words
to unthinkable thoughts
to eternity from the view…
…of an insect

Strophe 2:
So the cruelity comes near
and all tears are kissed away now
formed a body from the dust
with a mind out of steel.

And my eyes disappear
I don´t need them anymore
just the feelings in my head
and the world´s becoming clear.

Starring at the world
with the view of a child
everything that remains
is a shadow of the past.

A contract in my hand
it is signed with my blood
I try to understand
but I always fail…

Refrain:
Unable to move
I´m lying blinded on my knees
with calm in my head
and fire in my eyes.

Unable to speak
I´m searching for my destiny
with pain in my soul
and dreams of the past.
