The Healing Vision
Lord of fate, I feel you deep inside my brain...
Is it really just a dream or the urge to survive?
(...and during an odyssey through the back of my mind a vision appeared to make
me realize who holds the key to my fate...)back to top
Babylon
Yeah...
In a world of hate pollution
we can?t breathe anymore.
We?ve to leave and this time you,
the pawn, have won.
On our quest for nowhere island
we set off to the sea.
You call surrender what we call
a calm before the storm...

Pounding thoughts of home they make me know:
"I will return! I don?t live my life for you,
it?s too short to get burned.
Stand upright and face the wind!"

Time to go back where I belong...
No one can prevend me from
raising towers in Babylon.

You only can love me if you can convert me
to attitudes of your brain.
You blame us for doing things
that you don?t know. You tell me what you?d do if you were me but you are you and I am I
Lucky you, but this time I say: "No!"

Pounding thoughts of home they make me know: "I will return!".
I don?t want to hurt you but you?ll have to learn:
You are you and I am I!!!

Ooohhh...

Oh yeah...

(...and like the vision of my urge to salvation told me,
I built up a tower to widen my horizon, whatever they might say...)back to top
The Headless Game
Longing for silence...
"Always faster" is the way that we go.
Not a little patience...
Higher, farer, better we grow.
The beast is rising. It?s tantalizing
those who are taking the time.
Alienation... A revelation...
Straight to the end of the line...

Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don?t play your headless game!
We are alive, don?t say goodbye.
Fly! Riding away... Rising today...
No we don?t play your headless game!
We are alive, don?t say goodbye.

Cast out from Eden...
You don?t like what we are in your eyes.
We?re leading the treason on the race you run,
the way of your life.

I am danger, I?m a stranger
cause I don?t give in to your call.
And not until she is satisfied
we can come and explode and we fall!!!

We?re blowing the frame of your headless game:
We don?t follow!

([...In their eyes we are insane! But aren?t daydreamers only the escapists of
a soulless view of life?...)back to top
Land Of The Miracle
Blinded by the fire and the sorrow of the day,
I come knocking at your door
to dry the tears away.
The eventide is calling me to take a look into your eyes.
Pull me on and make me mesmerized
Riding on the wings of light,
dreaming dreams and holding tight;
leaving all my sorrow far behind.
Your eyes are the gate

to the land of the miracle where our love can make us fly, make us fly.
In the land of the miracle
we can find a reason why and how we can fly.

Open up the book of madness,
read the page of life!
Who?s the one to tell you what to do
and how to rise?
And if the stars would fall one day
I`d climb up to the sky
to put them back for you to save your smile.

...Take a look into the book of fantasy and poetry and you will see:
What you can feel is everything you need to heal your crying mind,
the soul behind and everything that you may find inside your head...

...A million years have passed away to make us head for the decay and to unlearn just
what we yearn for all day long: right to be strong and stick to our ideals,
are they for real and do we just have lost the thread?...

...I believe in miracles they happen every day.
In your arms a dream comes true for me...

(...isn?t poetry one of the biggest gifts to forget our daily life of sorrow?...)back to top
Wake Up The King
Soldier of sunlight
Welcome to the kingdom of ignorance
Where all the tears of ages tell their tales
No one dares to break the spell
No one dares to fly
Time is running out you can't deny
How many times
Have you found yourself under the influence?
How many times has a mirror mad you cry?
Now it's time to stand upright
Tear down your inner door
The birth of yourself can't wait no more

In your mind there's a battle raging on
Try to find what you're fighting for

Wake up the king
From his sleep in your fantasy
Wake up the king
Let him be all you ecstasy

Tears flow to rivers
And rivers to oceans of broken dreams
Have you ever heard of tears of joy?
Show yourself a sense of life
Open up your eyes
Let your heartbeat be your best advice

In your eyes I can see the fire burn
Realize, now it is your turn

Wake up the king
From his sleep in your fantasy
Wake up the king
Let him be all you ecstasy

Look at the mountain, look at the sun
Feel all the pure energy
Birds fly and whisper, call out your name
They belong to you and you're the
King of a kingdom, light in your hand
Look at what you have never seen
Walk on a rainbow, look to the stars
Cry it out and make your dream come true

Wake up the king
From his sleep in your fantasy
Wake up the king
Let him be all you ecstasy

Wake up the king
From his sleep in your fantasy
Wake up the king
Let him be all you ecstasy

Can't you see the crown?

(...and the vision continued: "There is less sense in complaining than looking
for your skills...")back to top
Falling Down
"No brain is left but here I got one more nail!"
The master's final word
When he created a 'hero' like you
Born to deride and to hurt
You don't try to find a reason why
You don't have a brain
(You don't wanna have a brain)
You are just a masquerade, just a nice facade
In a snob parade, I know
(You don't know)

You don't have to wait, I'll be too late
When you meet to jump off the edge
You don't have to wait, I'll be too late
When you meet to jump off the edge

I'm not like you and I don't wanna be
Follow the times to a place you can't see
Don't call in doubt what the fashing may bring
And you'll be falling down

Hammer the nail into what you don't know
Keep on believing you're strong
You got your pride and I got my peace
There's no sense in proving you wrong

We will fight just to stand upright
We are here to dare
(We will fight, we are here to dare)
Guts to sail against the stream, to defend the dream
To do what we feel, I know
(We will fight)

You don't have to wait, I'll be too late
When you meet to jump off the edge
You don't have to wait, I'll be too late
When you meet to jump off the edge

I'm not like you and I don't wanna be
Follow the times to a place you can't see
Don't call in doubt what the fashing may bring
And you'll be falling down

Ooohhh

You don't have to wait, I'll be too late
When you meet to jump off the edge
You don't have to wait, I'll be too late
When you meet to jump off the edge

I'm not like you and I don't wanna be
Follow the times to a place you can't see
Don't call in doubt what the fashing may bring
And you'll be...

(...they listen, they follow...and they fall...)back to top
Arrows Fly
Faking the truth in their eyes
Smile but they really deride
Never give you shelter
Lady all alone, naked to the bone
Make you bleed and melt into tears
Down on your knees you will see
What you could be
Raise the power in your eyes
Make us rise to make us say

Down and alone - arrows fly
Breaking on my soul
Down and alone - arrows fly
I remember times
When arrows hit me causing pain
All alone I've found my soul
And now my soul is sane

The night has come down on the land
I wanna reach out for her land
But she takes another
Lonesome in my room, staring at the moon
Treated like a bother

Down on my knees I have seen
What I can be
Raise the power in my eyes
Makes me rise to make me say

Down and alone - arrows fly
Breaking on my soul
Down and alone - arrows fly
I remember times
When arrows hit me causing pain
All alone I've found my soul
And now my soul is sane

Down and alone - arrows fly
Breaking on my soul
Down and alone - arrows fly
I remember times
When arrows hit me causing pain
All alone I've found my soul
And now my soul is sane

(...isn't loneliness a good reason to become acquainted with yourself?
And when you're down and out - aren't you compelled to face yourself?
And - if you know yourself - can the arrows of the world outside hurt you anymore?...)back to top
Holy Shadows
You're a child of an old illusion
Can't you hear it cry?
You live your life to the exclusion
Of what they call a lie
The touch of evil it is getting stronger
You'd better hide in the daylight
Or you won't stand the temptation no longer
And you will ask if your way is right

Do not ask the preacher why
All your fears keep it alive
Waiting for the end of time

Holy shadows, always follow
Holy chains on holy shadows

When you are eve then I am temptation
I am the words you're not allowed to say
The animal of their revelation
'Cause I can take your fears away

They make you blind and they want you to follow
"Free love is sin! Desire's slavery!"
My wicked kiss on your virgin lips
Will be a pleasant way you'll see it

Do not ask the preacher why
All your fears keep it alive
Waiting for the end of time

Holy shadows, always follow
Holy chains on holy shadows

Let's get down on the floor
You'll be screaming for more
When out bodies collide
I'll make you feel alright
Never give in when they call it sin

Waiting for the end of time

Holy shadows, always follow
Holy chains on holy shadows
Holy shadows, always follow
Holy chains on holy shadows
Holy shadows, always follow
Holy chains on holy shadows

(...father, forgive her for giving in to her lust,
for being not able to stand the temptation...and for enjoying it!...)back to top
Another Time
The rain outside reminds me of your voice
Like everything I hear since you're not there
And distance doesn't leave me any choice
Than to meet you in a dream we still can share
In my dream I see your smile
But when I open up my eyes
I can't see anyone
Now that you have gone away
I wonder if we'll reach the day
That you will realize that we belong

I can't take it for granted
I remember your smile
I can't take it for granted
'Cause I know that our life is in line
For another day or life in another time
In another time, in another time

The pressure and the fear it made you blind
You thought you have to give some burden away
But are you really sure if it's required?
Don't you want to find out another day?

In my dream I see your smile
But when I open up my eyes
I can't see anyone
Now that you have gone away
I wonder if we'll reach the day
That you will realize that we belong

I can't take it for granted
I remember your smile
I can't take it for granted
'Cause I know that our life is in line
For another day or life in another time
In another time, in another time

I can't take it for granted - I can't take it
I remember your smile - I remember
I can't take it for granted - I can't take it
'Cause I know that our life is in line
For another day or life in another time
In another time, in another timeback to top
The Unbeliver
I am the madness carrying the torch
Lighting the wheat in your fields
I am the eyes staring out of the dark
I am the war of your yields
When you give response away I grow
I am more of you than you might know

Burning down, burning down
It's a story of deceivers
Burning down, burning down
Put the blame on the unbeliever

I am the vision that comes to your mind
When you denounce without regret
"God" is the word in the bible you say
I am the word that you spread

When you give response away I grow
I am more of you than you might know

Burning down, burning down
It's a story of deceivers
Burning down, burning down
Put the blame on the unbeliever

I'm born and I lead the weak into the fire
"No more pain" is what you claim
While you have found your wicked desire
Hahaha...

Burning down, burning down
Put the blame on the unbeliever
Burning down, burning down
It's a story of deceivers

Burning down, burning down
Put the blame on the unbeliever
Burning down, burning down
It's a story of deceivers

(...and we still chase the evil - not realizing that it lurks inside of us...)back to top
Theater Of Salvation
"I?ve heard voices in my dream.
Made me stand up, helped me see. Aaah... Oohhh...
Visions called him to awake his mind,
to find his horizon
and find out what may be behind.

(vision:) "Take what you need,
you can find in the back of your soul!
Wake up the king in yourself
to be mighty and bold!"

Seasons of doubt,
fear and silent desires of life have gone by.
Visions have called back my longing
for freedom tonight. Made me sigh...
Wasting my life till the day
that the voice has appeared... Made me see:
I am the one that can make it
through times of despair; I am free!"

They built up a symbol of warning
to give me fear,
to keep me away from paradise
although it?s so near,
expecting I don?t take a look
at what is behind: Freedom calling...

Take a look at the open gate!
Walk on and don?t be afraid!
Free your mind in what they call
it?s the heart of temptation!

...oh... Go the way!

Take a look at the open gate!
Walk on and don?t be afraid!
Free your mind in what they call
it?s the heart of temptation!

Night after night
I remembered the word of the priest:
"Thou shalt not! Never give in to the promises made by the beast, so help me god!
Never give in to temptation or you?ll burn in hell a long, long time! Forever-eternal-salvation is
what I can sell if you stay blind!!!"

But I wanna know what lies behind the gate of their hell. And I won?t believe all the stories that
they always tell. I got the mind to find out what is right and what?s wrong. Freedom calling...

Queen of mine I long for you.
Tell me why to wait to find our joy!
It?s your wait for heaven?s door,
your fear that makes them grow
and let you forget today.

I?ll never go and I?ll stay on your side.
They?ll never know what I give to you
is a piece of paradise.

Heaven can wait! NOW I?m living!
Heaven can wait forevermore.
Heaven can wait!
I am to live like I want to also before I?ll die.
Heaven can wait! You can?t thrill me!
Heaven can wait, we dance till we die!
Heaven can wait! Welcome to the
THEATER OF SALVATION

"Hallelujah, hallelujah!"
I hear the man in black, his
"Hallelujah, hallelujah!"
He tries to keep me back. No!
"Hallelujah, hallelujah!"
Lock up the gates to wisdom
Hallelujah, hallelujah...
Too late! I?ve found the kingdom...

Hallelujah, hallelujah!
I see a band of angels.
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Freedom calling...
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
I do not fear the stories.
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Freedom calling me...

Don?t you see it? Don?t you feel it?
Freedom calling...

(...and the vision finally added: "Go and find the answers in yourself;
and always remember: 'You?re already living.'
Don?t let them scare you on your quest for answers and for salvation -
for real salvation...)back to top
