Track Name: We Ride
You promised gold, but sold us shards
Broken dreams wrapped in rags
Anything that lies around is not an option, but the only choice for us
You only scratch the upper surface
We go down, but we won't drown
We ride
We just thrill ourselves
We just feed our souls
While you try to push us aside
We ride
Beyond the borders the trip begins
Our money is your idle state
Gloomy coats, clattering boots end in smoke
We feed ourselves with what we need
We ride
abandoned cities you live in
celebrate yourself and the things that you create
We’re sucking in your holy human kind
On the hills We leave you there, behind
We ride
Track Name: Far And Further
The escape was nothing but a childish dream I had
searching for the angels in bitter hope that slightly fades
stumbling through thrilling worlds, for which I find no gracious words
building churches in the air, where no one waits to hear my prayer
far and further towards solitude
gone are the sacred places we adored, we had
when innocence was obvious, meanings were not questioned
I had nothing to worry – the nothing was what I have feared
Track Name: The Way We Feel
This night a bleeding moon.
So I think, this is the end
They ask me what it's like
unaware, what they never hear

The way we feel
is the weight of life
How we conceal
a life of seven seals

I keep my demons well
they come in peace, becoming me
don't enter secret gardens
you would reveal, I am your fear
Track Name: Betty Would Be Bored
Those many years went by
My days went on and they went well
it's hard to understand for me
but I had things to give
I’ve been standing here for years now
And with every blink and silent breath
I leave the world a little more
And finally fall asleep

It's a dying heart
in a dying world
and all I had to give
was passion
It's a dying heart
in a dying world
and all I wanted
was love
Remember!

I feel alone in bars
emptying glasses, emptying hearts
I keep quiet to understand
that even Betty would be bored
I feel a glance thrown at me
You are sparkling in the masses
But under your spell I forget
Eternal love lasts a cigarette

Remembering all those blissful moments
exciting, stunning times of beauty
on and on and on we live for
on and on and on we beg for
wandering, seeking in the memories
where all the hope we had got lost
on and on and on we live for
on and on and on we beg for
on and on and on we live for
on and on and on we beg for
on and on and on we live.
Track Name: Made A Decision
We caught the moon
at just the right moment, unique and true
real and everlasting, wasn't it stunning?

We fight for ourselves
weak are the faithful ones
while you were the princess
I waited at the well

Made a decision
to take on
to take pleasure in
I have been waiting
to be taken on
Whatever may come, no-one knows
Track Name: Never Fall Apart
You are talking to me, I can't see you
Standing right before me, I can't feel like you do
I am an endless desert, I'm the ocean of oblivion
It's worse to suffer, than dying for you.

I am thirsty, I am boundless, clearheaded in what I want
Everything that I'll discover, was never ever confined
Neglecting myself for a hollow simplicity, futility
Closing my mind for the endless sequels you unfold to me

I betray my pride for you
suffering for a fast release
Knowing what it means to me
And I never fall apart
And I give myself away
suffering for a fast release
Knowing what it means to me
And I never fall apart
Track Name: Waters
No matter how far I run
The waves are always coming back
Asking me “Why don’t you drink?”
In a language I refused to learn
The tide’s a mighty foe of memory
Washes away traces of the past
leaves a new mark in the sand
lasting only for a day

When it’s low I sit and wait
When it’s high I stand and stare
never knew if the water listens
So I stay silent
When it’s low I sit and wait
When it’s high I stand and stare
never felt the waves touching me
So I stay silent

In all the years of high and low
I found my place just in between
And suffer from an endless thirst
Suffer from the highest sun
You will not give up on my eyes
We only have a glimpse to share
Until I choose to turn away
Forget your face to find a new
Track Name: This Moment
This moment is perfection, fragile is the breath I take
I stop the air leaving my lungs
Because it takes the moment
This moment needs protection
This moment is perfection

This moment is perfection – it’s gone before I know
This moment is perfection – revealing made it go

This moment gave direction
One of a kind and never to return
There are things worth dying for
But to get it all you have to live
This moment needs protection
This moment is perfection
Track Name: Ritual Chains
We're doubting your existence
But chose to be your sons
We dance on our own graves
Blinded by life, by men

As long as you don’t suffer
From the perfect of believe
You are not open to the wounded
Inner circles have no flaws

Holy spirits where holding me down
They stood in my way to express, to excess
Then I broke free from the ritual chains
To find me again in a cage, in a mess

My power comes from words
Many tongues face many walls
Better loosing in confusion
Than understanding only once
Track Name: Dead Princess
This is the birth of a princess
The pride of creation
She is a beauty queen
My adorable saint
Don’t touch her she’s asleep
Not listening to your words
It’s her grace that killed my sight
And killed her after all

My purest memory
Dead princess
My coldest empathy
Dead princess

This is the death of a princess
Broken underneath
The staring eyes of witnesses
Breathing in her soul
Not listening to your words
It’s her grace that killed my sight
And killed her after all

This is the death of a princess
A glassy autumn flower
She raises her voice for one last cry
But I am blind and deaf and looking away
Not listening to your words
It’s her grace that killed my sight
And killed her after all
Track Name: Somebody Must
Sent me a message in the night
Wrote me that you fight out a strife
You know how to beg once more
Aware that I run if you fall

All I want is peace for you!
All I need is a piece of you!
All your dreams and wishes will come true!
All the struggled nights we went through!
Can anybody help you through old sores?
Somebody must help you!
Somebody must help you!

Now we deal with the ghosts in the back
Your purple dress is waving while I'm dressed in black
I'm offering my closeness
And hoping for a progress in you
The weight on your scale is shifting
While I'm living in my vices

All I want is peace for me!
All I need is a piece for me!
All my dreams and wishes will come true!
All the struggled nights I went through!
Can anybody help me through old sores?
Somebody must help me!
Somebody must help me!
Track Name: Understanding
At least my heart beats tonight.
That’s all I can demand, that’s all I've to offer.
No thought no emotion is leaving my mind.
I'm closed for today for too long and forever.
In between all the over-expression I'm left.
Alone and in silence how peaceful and tragic.
Action after action dissolves into air.
Ready to stand still embracing the nothing.

After all it’s the night understanding
You come here alone,
you leave here alone

worthless pictures are staring at me
while the precious ones lapse into silence
the moon becomes veiled in gathering clouds
I prefer the sun, where I can hide from
I came here alone, I'll leave here alone
The night understands too well
Who asked and has an answer for
I can't take it anymore
