01. Myrrh I

 

02. Narcotica

In this mirror of time you see that shine
And walk on the line and walk on in time
Wake up and see your light will die
There’s no need for anger there’s no need for blame
Again, again this life will change
Dark doors closing, I wish myself away

I wish myself away
I wish myself away
I wish myself away
I wish myself away

In this mirror of time you see that face
And walk on the line and walk on in time
Wake up and see your light will chase
Put you down ever and ever again
Again, again this song will change
Dark doors closing, I wish myself away

I wish myself away
I wish myself away
I wish myself away
I wish myself away

In this mirror of time you see that ghost
And walk on the line and walk on in time
Wake up and see your light will boast
There’s no need for shelter, you’ll still face the pain
Again, again this Love will change
Dark doors closing, I wish myself away

I wish myself away
I wish myself away
I wish myself away

This is in your brain once and nevermore
This is in your brain once and nevermore
This is in your brain once and nevermore
This is in your brain once and nevermore

03. 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

04. 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

05. 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

06. Listening Wind

 Mojique sees his village from a nearby hill
Mojique thinks of days before americans came
He sees the foreigners in growing numbers
He sees the foreigners in fancy houses
He thinks of days that he can still remember...now.

Mojique holds a package in his quivering hands
Mojique sends the package to the american man
Softly he glides along the streets and alleys
Up comes the wind that makes them run for cover
He feels the time is surely now or never...more.

The wind in my heart
The wind in my heart
The dust in my head
The dust in my head
The wind in my heart
The wind in my heart
Drive them away
Drive them away
Mojique buys equipment in the market place
Mojique plants devices in the free trade zone
He feels the wind is lifting up his people
He calls the wind to guide him on his mission
He knows his friend the wind is always standing...by.

Mojique smells the wind that comes from far away
Mojique waits for news in a quiet place
He feels the presence of the wind around him
He feels the power of the past behind him
He has the knowledge of the wind to guide him...on.

The wind in my heart
The wind in my heart
The dust in my head
The dust in my head
The wind in my heart
The wind in my heart
Drive them away
Drive them away.

07. Golden Age

In this Golden age on a holy lake
All the waves, even wild, we’re climbing
And we do it a dozen times

And I’m starting, my boat’s coming
A credo for my leaving
All the harmless reason gone
All the time we were as one
We were heathens all the night
And our star has come down near
Ever and evermore

In this Golden age on a holy lake

Whenever I stay and I partly take the distant road
But at other times I’m near
When I’m miles away
And I remember you
And I see your pure and white skin
When a light turns to shade down below
This love is from my heart

Never thought, never thought
Another go, another go

And I’m departing, my time’s coming
Whatever hides my dreaming
All the faithful on the run
All the life that seems unborn
We are hunters all the night
And the sky as far as near
Ever and evermore

Whenever I stay and I partly take a different road

But at other times I’m near
When I’m miles away
Whenever I stay and I partly take the distant road
But at other times I’m near
When I’m miles away
And I remember you
And I see your pure and white skin
When a light turns to shade down below
This love is from my heart

Never thought, never thought
Another go, another go

Whenever I stay and I partly take the distant road
But at other times I’m near
When I’m miles away
This love is from my heart

08. The Lonesome Death of a Goth DJ

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

No way to prostitute me, no way to synchronize
No way to prostitute me, no way to synchronize
No way to prostitute me, no way to synchronize
No way to interrupt me, no way to supervise

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

No way to prostitute me, no way to synchronize

No way to prostitute me, no way to synchronize
No way to interrupt me, no way to supervise

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

No way to prostitute me, no way to synchronize
No way to prostitute me, no way to synchronize

No way to interrupt me, no way to supervise

There’s no time for fierce competition
There’s no time for fierce competition
There’s no time for fierce competition
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

09. 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

10. 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

11. Myrrh II

 

12. Last Night Home

The night is cold
The night is cold, cold and dark
Still got my beating heart

Your God is old
Your God is old, old and smart
He’s a hunting guard

The night is cold
The night is cold, cold and dark
Still got my beating heart

The moon is fading away
Is fading away

And your love is on your way
Go on, go on, go on
Is fading away

Go on, go on – I stay
I’m hiding all away
Fading away

And we will all die

13. Stairs

I walk through this forgotten land
I see the stairs to your God
And a hundred ways to argue
And a hundred ways to grief
There is one way to see
We’re running out of time now

I keep the dream of peace in a changing world
I walk along the silent garden
But I’m not quiet again
When the people are saying
There’s no answer
There’s no tomorrow

And you call me a dreamer
And you call me a creep
And you wait for forgiveness
And you wait in the cold

One last song in my head
I keep the sound in mind, my writing
I say this several times
You see no longer these wonders
You feel the seed of all times – no more
You’d never take the blame
And you’d do it all the same
Never would you hang your head in shame
You’d never speak it loud
You’d rather lie your way out
But he won’t forget about it
Never

And you call me a dreamer
And you call me a creep
And you wait for forgiveness
And you wait in the cold

14. Obscura

You are the voice of a dream I had at night
You are the child and I see your princess crown as sad
When all the walls break down the rain - another waiting on
When hour by hour I see your palace in a native sun

When in this night the light and the secret of your fall
And all these hands around, all these empty hands of a liar
You are still wise and you dream and you feel it all comes bad
Look in the eye of a storm, I want that port back

Where is the shining and dreaming of a far old fire
Where is the isle that you know
Where is the isle that I know

Where is the night I’m longing for
Where is the highness, see us naked
Where is the light that made us shine
Where is the life we will be leading

You are the noise in my dream I had at night
You are the bride and I wind the clock, turn it back
When all the walls break down the pain - another waiting on
When hour by hour I see your face in a native sun

When in this night the right and the secret of your call
And all this land around, all this empty land of desire
Your eyes still bright and you dream and you feel it all comes bad
Look in the eye of a storm, don’t fear the storm’s head

And all the shining and dreaming of a far old fire
Reaching the isle that you know
Reaching the isle that I know

Where is the night I’m longing for
Where is the highness, see us naked
Where is the light that made us shine
Where is the life we will be leading

15. Last Words

I tell you my secret
Captive and son, my guard is coming
I played with this poison
Out of the light
There's no one around

No answers - time to close my eyes
No less than time - the time is wise
No one who stops it, my breathing's growing
I lose my life

I break this silence
Captive and son, captive and hunter
It brings me down and I've been disgraced
See all these problems
See all these problems

I lose my control and I don't know why
I see these pictures they're fading slowly
I lose my faith but I'm holding on

Here I go again now
Here I go - here I go
Here I go all this night - here I go

I hear you're whispering, your voice is forever in my mind
And I know
I see these colours I'm ablazed with
Stained by the people
Stained and I see
Painted black, painted white, painted so bright
All those drawings of my life
Now I'm prepared and my credence so far
I know you forgot my name years ago
