01. End

Will that be enough, that’s what I wonder?
Will I feel the sparks in the rain?
Will I see the coloured waves are rising?
Will I see the golden lane?

When I’m dying
When I’m dying
When love is dying
When love is dying

Will that be enough, that’s what I wonder?
And I feel the chaos in my brain
Will I see the yellow haze is shining?
Will I feel that I go insane?

When I’m dying
When I’m dying
When love is dying
When love is dying

The world is turning
The sky is burning
So should I yield?
The world is turning
The sky is burning
So should I yield?
The world is turning
The sky is burning
So should I yield?

Will that be enough, that’s what I wonder?
Will I feel all attempts were in vain?
Will I see my blinded mind enlightened?
Will I grieve at the end of the day?

When I’m dying
When I’m dying
When love is dying
When love is dying

And you see me fall and I do not weep I am close to the end
And you can see all my angels fall in one day
I am close to the end - so close to the end

The world is turning
The sky is burning
So should I yield?
The world is turning
The sky is burning
So should I yield?

The world is turning
The sky is burning
So should I yield?

So should I yield?
So should I yield?
So should I yield?
So should I yield?
So should I yield?
So should I yield?


02. BITTER SWEET GOOD-BYE

When the sound is falling
Time – time to go
The wind is gathering
And I’m ashamed of

Ashamed but I’m right

The night is coming
Time to stop and change my name
I change, I change my life
I never made you mine

Close your door
Close your door
Close your door
Close your door

It’s time to say goodbye
It’s time to say
It’s time to say goodbye

The end is coming
Time to take the lonesome way
I change, I change the side
I never made it mine

Winter, winter leaving
The snow is gathering
And my heart is beating
Lost the rhythm for our love

Close your door – Lost the key now
See you at the window
See your face there
Close your door
I fall in disgrace

It’s time to say goodbye
It’s time to say goodbye
It’s time to say goodbye
Oh no, no, no it’s all gone
No thoughts for ever-more
Nothing more to say

Close your door – the wind is in the snow
And spring is hiding
Oh no - Time to say goodbye
It’s time, time to say goodbye
It’s time, time to say goodbye
It’s time, time to say goodbye
It’s time, time to say goodbye

It’s time, time to say goodbye


03. HADDON HALL

I’m lying in the basement of Haddon Hall
I’m dreaming of Ziggy, he’s coming home
And he’s coming to help us
He’s coming to help us

And we pray for you now
A lonely heart behind the sun
The perfect world is burning down
And you are here – the golden one

And we pray for you now
The only guard sets up to come
The perfect world is burning down
And you are here – the golden one

And you’re coming to help us
You’re coming to help us

I wait in the basement of Haddon Hall
The glittering spaceship is coming home
I wait in the basement of Haddon Hall
I look out for Ziggy in his Cosmodrome

And he’s coming to help us
He’s coming to help us

And we pray for you now
A lonely heart behind the sun
The perfect world is burning down
And you are here – the golden one

And we pray for you now
The only guard sets up to come
The perfect world is burning down
And you are here – the golden one

And you’re coming to help us
You’re coming to help us

04. ANOTHER DEATH

Rake up all my mind
I know it’s all in me
And my time is now and running

And the sun is going down
Rake up all my mind
All death
All death

Forgotten who I am
I left it all behind
And the light is low and weakening

And the silence carries on
Forgotten who I am
All death
All death

And the clock is inside
And the clock is inside
The clock is inside
And running through it
Through my heart, my mind
My mind

And the time is now and running
And the time is now and running

And the stars are falling down
Rake up all my mind
All death
All death

And the clock is inside
The clock is inside
And running through it
Through my heart, my mind
My mind

All death
All death
All death
All death

05. KING’S MEN COME

When I see a land tired of endless shudder
These fields of no tomorrow
When I hear the mourn rise and the wind sigh
And I see every scary time as unreal
Evil is coming down at night
The evil is well-known in this folding starlight

One, two or seven lives are fading
And they’re coming through and breaking the law, come into fire
Come into cold, come into fire, come into war, come into peace
Every fight will name and turn out to be a glorious memory
Come into fire, come into war, come into peace

And all the men die

All these king’s men come
All these king’s men come
All these king’s men come
And all the men die
And all the men die

When I see they aim high as I’ve never seen it
When I hear their sorrow
When I see their love in the main of dark light
This conspiracy made of this fear
Evil’s coming down at night
The evil is well-known in this flashing starlight

One, two or seven lives are fading
And they’re coming through and breaking the law breaking the tower
Come into cold, come into fire, come into war, come into peace
They will praise your name and they will love you heavenly

All these king’s men come
All these king’s men come
All these king’s men come

And all the men die
All these king’s men come
And all the men die
All this king’s men come

When you’re blind to see they’re tired to die in battle
Then you want me to forget
When you’re blind to see they’re tired to die in battle
Then you want me to forget

Then you want me to forget
And you want me to forget

06. HUNTERS

So I’m creeping down and I’m creeping

forwards
And I’m cruelly walking by
And I’m coming out of this cave
I’m walking around you
I’m walking around you

In this novel of crime when I hear in this
freezing sound calling my name now
Shouting to come out now
Shouting to come out now

In this novel of grime when I hear in this
whispering sound calling my name now
Out of this dreaming and a howling light
out of my mind now

So I’m creeping down and I’m creeping
forwards
And I’m cruelly waking by
And I’m coming out of this cave
I’m walking around you
I’m walking around you

In this novel of crime when I hear in this
dreadful sound calling my name now
Shouting to come out now
Shouting to come out now

And the night is full of hunters
And all are hunting me

And the night is full of hunters
And all are hunting me

And the night is full of hunters
And all are hunting me

07. DARKNESS

You bring the darkness in my mind
In my life
You bring the darkness in my heart
The poisoned side

I’m running on, running
And the moon is fading down
Is fading down
The moon is fading down

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

When you leave
Then I know, then I know...

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

You bring the darkness in my mind
In my life
You bring the darkness in my heart
The poisoned side

You bring the darkness in my time
In my light
You bring the darkness in my words
A nameless rhyme

I’m waiting on, waiting
And the things are going wrong
Are going wrong
The things are going wrong

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

08. SUICIDE LANDSCAPE

Grew up in this shadow land
With a suicide landscape
Where the dark seas are whispering
From the edge to the deepest end

Grew up in this shadow land

With a suicide landscape
Where the black birds are singing
Where the black birds are falling down

Look up to these fallen stars
In a broken light sky shape
Where all these tongues in my head
All these tongues are still lancing

Look up to these fallen stars
In a broken light sky shape
Where all these guns in my head
All these guns are still dancing

Still dancing in my head
Still dancing in my head
Still dancing in my head
Are still dancing in my head

And I’m breaking and my name is on fire
And I go up and go down and see
There’s a sign to deny all this blindness
And I’m rising forever
Feel this night, feel this blood in my veins

And I am still here
And I am still here

Still dancing in my head
Still dancing in my head
Still dancing in my head
Are still dancing in my head

09. KINGDOMS OF CANCER

And we leave all these kings
And these kingdoms of cancer
And we leave all these fights,
These fights full of anger
And we leave all this now
And we leave all this now
And we all stand up now
And we hear and we see

And we leave all these teachers
They teach us no answers
And we leave all these priests
The priests are all fighting
And we leave all this now
And we all stand up now

And we hear and we cry
And we leave all these liars
And we leave all these mothers
They shattered our dreaming
And we leave all these fathers
They can’t hear us crying
And we leave all these soldiers
They’ve forgotten good prayers
And we leave all these prophets
And their wishful unsaying

And I cry out in this mud
And I fear it in the night
And I look up in this all
and I feed on this pain
And I read all these signs I see
Every time I’m being seen
Aching and hoping,
No secrets to hide

And I’m counting all these fires on the sea
And this cold and dark rain I can see
And this loving is coming down
And I see this light is here

And we leave all these kings
And these kingdoms of cancer
And we leave all these fights
These fights full of anger
And we leave all this now
And we all stand up now
And we hear it and we see it in
And look up to the stars

And we leave all these teachers
They teach us no answers
And we leave all these fears
These ships without anchors
And we leave all this now
And we all stand up now
And we break down these walls
Than it’s coming, it’s coming

And I’m counting all these fires on the sea
And this cold and dark rain I can see
And this loving is coming down
And I see this light is here

10. CROSSROADS

I'm standing at the crossroads
There are many roads to take
But I stand here so silently
For fear of a mistake
One path leads to paradise
One path leads to pain
One path leads to freedom
They all look the same.

I've travelled many roads
And not all of them where good
The foolish ones taught more to me
Than the wise one’s ever could
One path dare to sacrifice
One path dare to shame
One path dare to freedom
They all look the same.

There were roads I never travelled
There were turns I did not take
There were mysteries I could not unravelled
But leaving you was my only mistake.

So I'm standing at the crossroads
Imprisoned by this doubt
As if by doing nothing
I might find my way out

One path leads to paradise
One path leads to pain
One path leads to freedom
They all look the same

There were roads I never travelled
There were turns I did not take
There were mysteries I could not unravelled
But leaving you was my only mistake.

11. WONDERS

I’m counting all these wonders
Never mind - I catch their name
I’m counting all this thunder
Out of the rain

What is there to know?
All this time I see
And I’m going
Time to think by feeling
Time for breathing
And all with one flow

Out of the rain
In the wood this black tree
I’ve been looking for
Out of the rain
And the minor sun, minor sin
And we know them

And we’ll ever know
And we’ll ever know

And we’ll ever know

I’m counting all these wonders
Never mind! – I touch your face
I’m counting all this thunder
Out of the rain

Out of the rain
In the wood this black tree
I’ve been looking for
Out of the rain
And the minor sun, minor sin

Out of the rain
In the wood this black tree
I’ve been looking for
Out of the rain
And the minor sun, minor sin
We don’t fear them

And we’ll never do
And we’ll never do
And we’ll never do
And we’ll never do

 

 

01. A THOUSAND LAKES

I see you’re standing in the dark
I know, know your name
I hear you’re screaming in a hall

I see you’re walking in the yard
All flowers look the same
I see you’re running from it all
I know

Holding back the years
Never
Never home
Never home

I see you’re walking the same road
Just another day
This time you won’t come back

I know you’re dreaming in the court
What else I could say
I know your dreams are painted black
I know

Go on, go on
Go on, go on
To the thousand lakes
One last time

Go on, go on
To the thousand lakes
One last time

I see you standing in the yard
I know, know your name
I hear you’re weeping in your fall
I know

I see you’re sleeping in the dark
The candles still the same
I see them not burn down at all
I know

Holding back the years
Forever
All alone
All alone

Go on, go on
Go on, go on
To the thousand lakes
One last time

Go on, go on
To the thousand lakes
One last time

Go on, go on
To the thousand lakes
One last time

One last time
One last time
One last time

02. RUMOURS

When I’m here I will say it
I will say it, do it
Spreading rumours and I ... and I hope
When I fear when I know when I see you in this all
Telling rumours - remind me I hope
And your embarrassed smile for a while
And I meet the foreign hero spreading rumours
And his wrong empathy

When the better takes it, don’t mind
And I’m feeling, falling proud
And I see the maze of small lies
You shame me, just go

Should it ever break me, don’t mind
And I’m feeling, falling proud
And I’m lost in the maze of small lies
You shame me, just go

The pale-blue lake behind in my dream and I know
You’d better never telling rumours again - yes you do
I’ll never take your smile for a while
And I’m creeping forward near you telling rumours
Yes I know, yes I see

When the better takes it, don’t mind
And I’m feeling, falling proud
And I see the maze of small lies
You shame me, just go

Should it ever break me, don’t mind
And I’m feeling, falling proud
And I’m lost in the maze of small lies
You shame me, just go

When the better takes it, don’t mind
And I’m feeling, falling proud
And I see the maze of small lies
You shame me, just go

03. SEVEN-DAY WONDER

Where’s the time I loved to blame – I’m whispering
After all those years I look the same
Where’s the time I feared – from your eyes I’m feeding
And I’ll be coming round to see
In your heart you’ll never know

Where’s the time I claimed to fame –
I’m whispering
After all those years you’ll write my name
Where’s the time I saw – in your eyes I’m reading
And I’ll be coming round to feel
In your heart you’ll never know

And over time you’ll see
A seven-day wonder I will be

And that time when I felt less than someone
And that time I knew to hide my aim
And a kind of blue along my feelings
I’m a funeral man you’ve never seen …
I know you’ve never heard of

Comes a time you know to guide my dreaming
Comes a time you know to bear the shame
In a night so clear the moon’s unsealing
And you call my name – I know you see
I know you praise my ways now

And over time you’ll see
A seven-day wonder I will be

04. DARK RAIN

I take the road beside you
I see you turn this shine on
I hear you’re breathing, see you’re waiting in the sky

I will make you all mine
I will hold you in time
I see your glow is coming down here

I will make you all mine
I will hold you in time
I feel your love is coming down here

In the yellow haze of a burning sky
In the yellow haze of a burning sky

I dream of an everlasting angel
In the yellow haze of a burning sky
I dream of an everlasting angel
In the yellow haze you are burning

Echoes from a choir of silence
Unfold in this speeding sound here
They’ve saved you in this fire
At least you go up in flames

I will make you all mine
I will hold you in time
I will make you all mine
I will hold you in time

In the yellow haze of a burning sky
In the yellow haze of a burning sky

Feel the dark rain
Feel the dark rain
Feel the dark rain
Feel the dark rain

I dream of an everlasting angel
In the yellow haze of a burning sky
I dream of an everlasting angel
In the yellow haze of a burning sky

Feel the dark rain feel the dark rain
Here comes, here comes the dark rain
Feel the dark rain
Feel the dark rain
Feel the dark rain
Here comes, here comes the dark rain

In the yellow haze of a burning sky
In the yellow haze of a burning sky
In the yellow haze of a burning sky
In the yellow haze we’re all burning

05. ENDLESS TIME TO SEE

Out of sight out of mind – back to life
You hear my voice and I won’t criticise
All is good and endless time I can see
Into my eyes you can still find the answer

Out of sight - out of mind – but it’s me
All the streets lie empty I can see
All the time I try to feel right
The demons awakened are on my side

All this time all I feel is love
All this time all I feel it’s love
All this time all I feel is love
All this time all I feel it’s love

Out of sight - out of mind – you’re still here
And the dark sky is clear you can see
All the stars ceased to be bright
Even the demons are missing the moonlight

Out of sight out of mind – back to life
I hear your voice and you won’t criticise
All is good endless time you can see
Into your eyes I can still find the answer

Keep hope inside
Keep hope inside

All this time all you feel is love
All this time all you feel it’s love
All this time all you feel is love
All this time all you feel it’s love

Keep hope inside
Keep hope inside

All this time all we feel is love
All this time all we feel it’s love
All this time all we feel is love
All this time all we feel it’s love

Keep hope inside
Keep hope inside
Keep hope inside
Keep hope inside

06. WAITING IN THE FOREST

I’m waiting in the forest
I’m waiting through the night
I’m waiting and I’m seeing
The dusk is full of shade

No, no - I can’t hear you’re calling
No, no – the day is ending

I’m waiting in the forest
All the colours dark at night
Remembering the gloaming
I fear the fading light

No, no - I can’t hear you calling
No, no - I can’t hear you calling

I’m waiting in the forest
I’m waiting one last night
I’m waiting and I’m feeling
My heart is full of shade

No, no - I can’t hear you’re calling
No, no – when love is ending

I’m waiting in the forest
Now the wind is cold and free
I’m waiting and I’m thinking
How warm it used to be

No, no - I can’t hear you calling
No, no - I can’t hear you calling

No, no - I can’t hear you calling
No, no - I can’t hear you calling

07. ALL THOSE DAYS

And I break down these walls
And I‘m coming home
And I see the skyline
And the moon’s running low

And I wake up these ghosts
And they‘re coming, coming
They’ve been waiting for
Been waiting for

And they play with fire
And the light is turning
Now or never
Now or never

All those days
Now – I want to remember
All those days
Now – I want the sun going blind
All those days
I want to remember
We worked out a compromise
Far away are all those days

And I rake up these tales
And I‘m counting the words
And I read the fine lines
And the book’s end is close

And I break down these walls
And I‘m leaving, leaving
I’ve been waiting for
Been waiting for

All those days
Now – I want to remember
All those days
Now – I want the sun going blind
All those days
I want to remember
We worked out a compromise
Far away

All those days
Now – I want remember
All those days
Now – I want the sun going blind
All those days
I want remember
We worked out a compromise
So far away are all those days
All those days
All those days
All those days

08. THIS TIME

And I hold you – this time
And I dream – this time
And this rain – this time
And this rain is hard - this time

With your black pearled eyes
And I see you are coming
Coming through this door
And you’re saving all lies
And I know
You want my understanding

With your black pearled eyes
And I see you are coming
Coming through this door
And you’re saving all lies
And I know
You want my understanding

And I hold you – this time
And I dream – this time
And this rain – this time
And this rain is hard - this time

And my dream is fading – this time
And my kiss is burning – this time
And the night is cold – this time
And this light is old – this time

With your black pearled eyes
And I see you are going
Going through this door
And you leave me this time
And I know
You want my understanding

09. THE LONESOME DEATH OF A GOTH DJ

This is the lonesome death of a Goth DJ

There’s no time for fierce competition

This is the lonesome death of a Goth DJ
This is the lonesome death of a Goth DJ

10. CLOSE TO THE FIRE

Today we’re sailing in the rain
And we leave for a young world
On the flood and with the tide
All with the strong following wind

Than we are kissing in the night
And all the stars guide our will
And we know the darkened land
Is far, far away …

Is far, far away
Is far, far away
Far, far away

Close to the fire
Close to the sea
And we are close to desire
We break up to survive
We’re close to the fire
Our eyes are not too weak
With heart and soul, we want to be
For- forward till the end
Together

Today we’re drifting to reclaim
And we dream of a strong world
We make love in a silver light
And the ghosts are coming in

So then we’re kissing through the night
And all the stars hide our sin
And we know the darkened land
Is far, far away …

Close to the fire
Close to the sea
And we are close to desire
We break up to survive
We’re close to the fire
Our eyes are not too weak
With heart and soul, we want to be
For- forward till the end
Together

Eheheh…
Eheheh…
Eheheh…

And we can hear the echo
And we’re near to the island
And our eyes went blind
As always the same old thing
And we don’t fear the echo
We’re reaching the island
And our hearts go wild
And our bodies still claiming

And we were sailing side by side
And timeless stars heal our pain
And we know the darkened land
Is far, far away ..

Is far, far away
Is far, far away
Far, far away

Close to the fire
Close to the sea
And we are close to desire
We break up to survive
We’re close to the fire
Our eyes are not too weak
With heart and soul, we want to be
For- forward till the end
For- forward till the end

Eheheh…
Eheheh…
Eheheh…

Close to the fire
Close to the sea
And we are close to desire
We break up to survive
We’re close to the fire
Our eyes are not too weak
With heart and soul, we want to be
For- forward till the end
For- forward till the end

11. DOWN ON THE LANE

You’ve never felt home on this planet
And your ticking time was always against it
Never in and always far
It’s closing time we open the day of mourning
The end of hurt is coming
The left alone is going
Forever without a doubt
And you changed the state of full desire
And as never you’re clear in mind
And you’ve got your soul back to the wind
And the wind will rather save you now

Your book is closing
But your words are growing
And I see you’re walking
And I see you’re shining
And I hear you breathing
And I hear you’re calling
And I see you’re dancing

I see you’re dancing in the light
And you’ve been waiting so long
And you’ve never lost your dream
To become an ocean fire
That I won’t stop to admire
And I won’t forget your name
Now you will follow all the clouds
Down on the lane
Down on the lane

This song is closing
But the sound is rising
And I see you’re walking
And I see you’re shining
And I hear you breathing
And I hear you’re calling
And I see you’re dancing

I see you’re dancing in the light
And you’ve been waiting that long
And you’ve never lost your dream
To become an ocean fire
That I won’t stop to admire
And I won’t forget your name
You will follow all the clouds

I see you’re dancing in the light
And you’ve been waiting that long
And you’ve never lost your dream
To become an ocean fire
That I won’t stop to admire
And I won’t forget your name
You will follow all the clouds

Down on the lane
Down on the lane
