Track Name: Change
If your world should ever change
better keep it don't divide it!
Live your life, just rearrange it, never hide it!

Look around, it's coming!
You were lost and you were found.
Realize no one can read your every need.
And your time is running
It will turn you upside down!
Treat yourself as someone that you wanna be!

If your world should ever change...

So you try and turn the page
You see crime and you see rage
rising up and never ever coming down again
And you write your final song,
yet another comes along,
living in illusions that will never go away.
If your world should ever change
better keep it don't divide it!
Live your life, just rearrange it, never hide it!

If your world should ever change...

But nothing went wrong.
It all fits together!
Yeah-eah!

If your world should ever change...
Track Name: Primeval
You entered an empty room 'cause nobody's waiting.
You expected a new life – but nothing has changed.
Yesterday there was something to hope for.
Now's the time to lose all your faith in lies.
Once your heart was clean
and clear like broken glass.
Never thought you'd ever throw
your stones into my sea!
Losing it all.
And if the burning sun was laughing at the whining moon
Oh, would you still be here?
Remember what I said, don't leave this place too soon!

And there's nothing left. We return to rest.
And still I don't believe in evil.
And there's nothing else, but I know we're blessed
'cause our future is primeval.

And no story ever told among these great believers
can save the world we sold to all those mad deceivers.

And there's nothing left....

We'll all end up like fading words.
It's only the way that hurts so bad.
We enter the space inside.
Prepare for a stormy ride.

And there's nothing left...
Track Name: On Liquid Terrain
So silent - A breath in the pouring rain.
So violent - And nothing can kill the pain!

So hard to believe the time has come.
I'm caught in a crossfire.
The visions, the grief, our work is done.
A life on a high-wire...

Reliant - behind a reluctant style.
Compliant - A constantly changing smile.

So hard to believe...

Tell me, what are you fighting for in my very name,
on liquid terrain?
I want to know, what are you hiding from in your very name
on liquid terrain?

I'm trying to hang on to the last remain.
I'm dying to know if this life's in vain.

So hard to believe...

Tell me, what are you fighting for...
Track Name: Believe
Do you really believe this world is real?
Hold on and take a look around!
Do you really believe it?
How could you ever believe it?
Do you really believe in magic?
Oohoohoo! Do you really believe me?

I am the keeper of the shame.
I am the killer of the flame.
I'm watering your eyes
to make your green grass grow.
I am the trouble by your side
no matter what you try to hide from me.
Oh yeah!

Do you really believe this world is real...

Why did you try to take away
the magic game I used to play?
Why did you stop this revolution?
Your angel wings, my fading dreams,
I know that nothing's what it seems to be. Oh no!

Do you really believe this world is real...
Track Name: Home of Cain
Tell me, are you one of the lost? Are you one of the broken?
Will you listen to us?
Lead me by the smell of belief. Is there a reason today
when I'm lost in the game all the common poeple play?

In the Home of Cain
Holy numbers, I'm conting my days again.
In the Home of Cain
Fallen angels, I'm swept off my feet again.
In the Home of Cain
Holy numbers, I'm conting my days again.
In the Home of Cain
Fallen angels, and I'm swept off my feet again.

What if I could show you the truth?
I've got to spend all my good life
with a void in my center,
on the edge of a knife.
Simple but not as easy as this:
So you are playing for time.
And the whole world lies dying
in the shadow of the crime.

In the Home of Cain...

And the ones I'm loving most are the ones I'm leaving!
And the ones I'm loving most are the ones I'm leaving!
Leaving...
Track Name: Stella Nova
Keep an eye on the one you became when the scar was born.
You're the man on the run in a world that's been raped and torn
when the inside is gone and the outside is giving in.
Crawling under the sun through the places you're living in.
I will remember talking about, playing around,
a life without a compromise.

I will recall the peace of the fight, the darkness and light,
my living eyes.

Free me from this pain! Heal and break and heal again!
I can't run from something so strong!
When the wind returns to rage trying to break this golden cage:
Can you stand for something so wrong?

On the day of the grace, in the year of the calling
you returned back to life, and now hiding means falling...
I will remember talking about, playing around,
a life without a compromise.

I will recall...

Free me from this pain...

In the name of distance, in the name of loss,
in the name of winter, in the name of us,
in the name of time, in the name of everyone who casts a shadow on my crime,
in the name of fire, in the name of light,
in the name of everything so hot, so cold and bright,
in the name of blood, in the name of greed,
In the name of everything that's sleeping in my seed:

Free me from this pain...
Track Name: Shine On
So many rainy days, and so much dirt in your shows, but again
you're losing your way and your white light turned blue.
I know you walk on Earth, and now you're talking to me and you speak to yourself. Speak your mind

Shine on, child of mine!
Shine on, and keep this dream alive!
Shine on, child of mine!
Shine on, and give it one more try!
Shine on, child of mine!
Shine on, and keep this dream alive!

And you will sing your song. You breathe it in, you want it all!
This curious mind you brought along. Imagine life without it!
It's just a moment away. I count the days until you see.
And whenever you fly you cross the gap of eternity!

Shine on, child of mine...
Track Name: Collaborator
Oh, we will need to collaborate!
One day we'll know what we have done!
One day we'll know it's just collaboration!
Just collaboration!
Track Name: The Cry (Radio Edit)
Time is a gun, it's a silent roar.
Seasons - they come undone.
I wish I'd known before.
I, I'm in for the things to come. I'm up on the pain.
Reasons? There's no such thing as home in case of rain.

The cry! Advice to rely on, no time to forget
I can't see the colourflow of dawn inside the cry!
My terrible something, it's time to regret!
And we all will come apart in
the cry, the cry, the cry!

Now you stand up there, your back against the wall,
your head in the clouds again.
A lion sleeps in Snow-White's lair. No giant leap at all!
This ain't no fairy-tale.
Sealed alive, refuled and built again. I'm back on the road!
Come to terms with green and blue and all the time we spent
on this holy load.

The cry...

And you're left with nothing, and you're left with nothing
And you're left with nothing, nothing in your hands!
And you left with nothing, nothing in your hands, no!
And you left - and you're left with nothing!
and you're left with nothing, nothing in your hands!
You're left with nothing....
Track Name: Spark
Here and now, now and then.
Here we died once again.
Undertones, a coma dance,
tiny ones, your first romance, your first romance
Just a little spark and a life returns from nowhere
Travelling on the edge of a knife.
Right out of the dark comes another restless being
just to play a part in your life.
Just a little spark and a life returns from nowhere
Travelling on the edge of a knife.
Right out of the dark comes another restless being
just to play a part in your life.
Track Name: Place to Be
So you're waking up in a world of difference and disillusion.
And you want to know if you can live with this confusion.
Come back home to common sense!

Woahohoho... where's the place to be?
Woahohoho.. the place...
Woahohoho... it's the place to be!

I'm giving up all my songs, commit my final crime.
I'm giving up my whole world and all the time
I'm, I'm far from home and I'm so, so far from
the right place to be, to be, to be, to be.
You're reaching out for the sun on every cloudy day
but even curtains of light are just a breath away.
We're far from home and we're so, so far from
the right place to be, to be, to be, to be.

Come down from your throne, descend and crawl like everyone else!
You feel the heat inside, the pain inside
in a world that makles you weak.
They're selling you, they promise you much more than they can keep,
much more than they can keep!

Woahohoho...

I'm giving up all my songs...

Where's the place to be ...... the place...?
Track Name: The Violent Plains
This ain't no innocence, completely toxicated.
All these black and white stains on this bright, bright mind!
And there's no difference between hell and hero
when you sentence yourself, do what you really want.
Hey, hey, you're the perfect brother when your sister's dead.
You'll be the greatest mother when you lose your head.
And so you send your prayers to a dying world.
But never open dead shells to find the perfect pearl!

For the sake of nothing, to a distant land!
For the sake of hell! Don't bite that hand, no!
For the sake of nothing, you're a dying god.
For the sake of hell!

Some day, some day we'll dance
on the violent plains, on the violent plains!
Some day, some day we'll dance
on the violent plains, on the violent plains!

We feel so liberated, now that we've lost it all.
I'm hiding in my own shade, you're free to fly, you're free to fall!
We dance around our fires, and you still feed the flame.
I know that you're still hungry, too, beyond all sense of shame.

For the sake of nothing...

Some day, some day we'll dance...

Some day we'll dance on the violent plains!
Some day we'll dance on these plains!
Some day! Some day, some day we'll dance on these violent plains!
Track Name: Always There
It's always there when you find me.
It's always there when I walk away.
It's always there when I'm hiding,
and it's something between the world and me.
It's always there when I'm flying.
It's even there on my darkest day.
It will be there when I'm dying,
and it's something between the world and me.

Doo-doodoodoodoopdoop-doodoo
Doo-doodoodoodoopdoop-doodoo...
Track Name: Something
Give me something to lean on,
and a reason to be right here!
Give me something to cling to!
Give me something to lean on!
Give me something I can breathe in!
Give me something to hold on to!

Sometimes it's different when it's all in a moment,
a dirty little doubt in a moment of trust.
One second of your life that comes down to everything,
to everything you want and everything you are.

Give me something...

And so I send my pictures from the dark side of the moon.
I'm Helter-Skelter-Need-No-Shelter-Always-Late-Too-Soon.
An unprotected child, forgotten and gone wild.
But don't you care and don't you worry, I can't come back again.

Give me something...
Track Name: 9/16
You're back on my mind today when real life's closing in on me.
You are gone, you went away. I'm not far and I will never be.
You listened to my beating heart, so distant and yet so close.
The man behind the curtain believed a reaper only takes what he knows.

I can feel it when I'm heading nowhere.
And you heal me with a touch from somewhere.

You turned to the light and you closed your eyes, looked for cover.
You're losing your sight like sleepers and lovers.
I drank from the rain and it's feeding me.
I'm never running dry.
We're living our lives like sisters and brothers.

In the hour of parting and sleep in your eyes
a new future in the making on a river that dies.
You're reborn as a memory of broken down green.
Like thunder falling on the ground I saw something that I'd never seen.

You turned to the light...

I can feel it...

Gone, I know that you're gone.
Still circling around me. Gone.
Time, there's no time. But you're so powerful.
Still so powerful. Yeah!
Can you see me? Can you hear me?
I can feel it, I can see it.
Yeah-eah-eah!
I can hear your echo in my world!
I can hear your echo in my world!
I can see your echo in the sky!
I can see your echo in the sky!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
I can breathe it, I can feel you!
Can you hear me? Can you see me?
Can you hear me?
