ALBUM: LIEDER

Cosmic

I want to believe
I have no other need
Can’t you see, I’m to be
A dreamer all my life

Who can deny
I know that it’s no lie
Sure we can all pull through
There will be a place to hide

Cosmic girl you rule my world
You make it real, I have no fear
I know it’s true, you are the muse
You show me the way

I want to believe
I have no other need
Don’t you know, I told you so
We make a perfect team

Deep down inside
I feel a homing device
Eventually I’ll come to you
In the restless tide

Cosmic girl you rule my world
You make it real, I have no fear
I know it’s true, you are the muse
You show me the way

Do you see me
My only one, my queen
You’re the best, you beat the rest
You are my everything

Let me bring you up to date
Hear me before it’s too late
My destiny is to be
Yours and and yours alone

Cosmic girl you rule my world
You make it real, I have no fear
I know it’s true, you are the muse
You show me the way

Horses Run With Me

Envy men they pillage and plunder
Land is empty, sky is burning
Rumbling like a train through a mountain
Coming on a landslide of jealousy

Naked souls
Fall to their knees
Touched by the blazing fire

Can you hear the sound of thunder
Rolling over hills and roof tops
It’s the roaring horde of the enemy
Their evil voices tear your heart out

Naked souls
fall to their knees
touched by the blazing fire

Horses run with me
Rising from the sea

Can you see a black cloud growing
The darkest shape of all the angels
They could lay them down in the valley
Dwell in the shadows an eternity

Naked souls
Fall to their knees
Touched by the blazing fire

Horses run with me
Rising from the sea

Horses run with me

Winter

In his brain, poison thoughts do flow
He always stares into the pitch-black deep
There’s no warmth in his heart
There’s no light, there is winter

Stumbling lonely in his clumsiness
Full of pain, such an ugly thing
If he wants to save his life
He has to hold it very gently

Through the night he wanders away
And he kneels to pray
Soon it will snow upon the trail
And time stands still, no reply

In his tracks no sun will shine for him
Cold and long, the shadows of tall trees
There he lies, so deformed
Treated by death and dying

Through the night he wanders away
And he kneels to pray
Soon it will snow upon the trail
And time stands still, no reply

He is cursed to winter wanderings
To a thousand wastelands dark and cold
Like the smoke thin and gray
He always seeks colder places

Through the night he wanders away
And he kneels to pray
Soon it will snow upon the trail
And time stands still, no reply

*****

Heartbeat

Low lie the orange clouds
Stay out, no sleep tonight
The wood is full of tales to tell
The broken branches claw your face

You turn your back on the night and you slide down the street
You pick up the pace for every heartbeat
But how could you know, how could you know

Windows like hollow cries
The only sound to tear the night
Like a pain very deep and long
The path keeps going on and on

You turn your back on the night and you slide down the street
You pick up the pace for every heartbeat
Looks like you’ll be there soon, so why don’t you turn
Your back on the night – and slide down the street
You pick up the pace for every heartbeat
Looks like you’ll be there soon, but how could you know

It’s more than you deserve,
But you can’t forgive yourself
So the darkness speaks
But you listen, you listen well

You turn your back on the night and you slide down the street
You pick up the pace for every heartbeat
Looks like you’ll be there soon, so why don’t you turn
Your back on the night – and slide down the street
You pick up the pace for every heartbeat
Looks like you’ll be there soon, but how could you know

Hello

You live your life in a different world
In another place, another time
The gravity is only half of ours
Busy streets, plans and strong demands

Do you see, do you hear, do you feel the warp in time?
Don’t you need the symmetry to come true?
Do you fear to be near, do you tell yourself a lie?
Don’t you want to die and curse the universe? – Oh my

A change for us, it’s coming soon
Traffic grooves and towns collide
The city wheels without a sound
Could it be prophecy or just a chance?

Do you see, do you hear, do you feel the warp in time?
Don’t you need the symmetry to come true?
Do you fear to be near, do you tell yourself a lie?
Don’t you want to die and curse the universe? – Oh my

Hello, how are you?
Do you still feel the same?

Hello, how are you?
Can we still meet some day?

*****

Castaway

Empty desert shore
A colourless sea
Shapeless distant lines
No night nor day

Send your team to rescue me
Pick me up – don’t leave on the surface
Lock on me your tractor beam
Red alert – I’m about to lose control
Save me

Miles and miles of waste
Move with a wave
Point of no return
An endless empty zone

Send your team to rescue me
Pick me up – don’t leave on the surface
Lock on me your tractor beam
Red alert – I’m about to lose control

Look at me
Run your sensors on my skin
I’m on your screen
Listen to me
Do you read me, I can hear you loud and clear
Do you read me?

Silence fills my mind
It pulls me down
Now I close my eyes

Scan me deep, look into me
Pick me up – don’t leave on the surface
Lock on me your tractor beam
Red alert – I’m about to lose control

Look at me
Run your sensors on my skin
I’m on your screen
Listen to me
Do you read me, I can hear you loud and clear
Do you read me?

Dream

Come on get closer
There’s no use to play dead
Resistant is futile
What you need is what you dread
Now the world is worn away
We live to dream another day

Dream follows me
I don’t want to wake up in the morning
Flow through debris
Dream away with me

Hide in the trees
Better keep the cover, the warm safe cover
Hold on to me
Dream away with me

Are you receiving
I called you without fear
For me you’re the real thing
Forgetfulness has brought us near
In my dream I sing a song
No-one knows if the tune goes wrong

Dream follows me
I don’t want to wake up in the morning
Flow through debris
Dream away with me

Hide in the trees
Better keep the cover, the warm safe cover
Hold on to me
Dream away with me

I close my eyes and there you are
In a moment we travel far
Heaven is on the pillow
Come fill my heart with content

*****

Hide and Seek

Undone, unaware, lazy
Hide and seek is the game that we play
Me, I’m walking in circles
I’m involved in a mystery

See, I’m trying to get through
Now it’s dark and I can’t hear a sound
If there’s something to hope for
That’s for me to know and you to find out

So now, can you hear me?
And now, can you still feel me?

Nightmares, let them take over
Sleepless nights, dream all days away
Don’t talk, there’s no compassion
Malicious thoughts and suspicious minds

So now, can you hear me?
And now, can you still feel me?

Undone, unaware, lazy
Hide and seek is the game that we play
Me, I’m walking in circles
I’m involved in a mystery
Now hear me out

So now, can you hear me?
and now, can you still feel me?

*****

Want

I want to move
I want to groove like you
It’s when we talk
The wisdom walks with us

Why can’t I work at ease like everybody else can?
Do shoppings of my own, on my own time
Does the body rule the mind?
I watch the way the wind blows
I’m looking for something I won’t find

I’ve travelled far
Hell and high water
Cursed God above
I thought my time was near

My sheets are old and dirty
I try to make the bed
Of my own life

I want to live at ease like everybody else does
Do shoppings of my own, on my own time
Does the body rule the mind?
I watch the way the wind blows
I’m looking for something I won’t find

*****

Illusions

I show you illusions
You show me the truth
Full of fear and intention
We talk and walk the streets

I feel your hand slip away
It’s more than you say
So tell me who is behind the confusion
I don’t know what’s the game we play

Everytime when I reach your home
I hope not, to stumble
I hope to, to be born again

Right from the start I stand in the dark
I’m trying not to fall, to fall down

I stand in your doorway
It’s something new
You’ve got be joking
If you think that I’m okay

I’m starting to wonder if you
Saw things in my way
These nights can be frightening
Life can be vague, who is to blame

Everytime when I reach your home
I hope not, to stumble
Now is time to read the signs
Light shines bright on your door bell

Right from the start I stand in the dark
I’m trying not to fall, to fall down

Everytime when I reach your home
I hope not, to stumble
Now is time to read the signs
Light shines bright on your door bell
I hope to, to be born again

*****

Like A Breath

Snowflakes falling through the night
They fade away before they land

On the edge of dawn I stay
Heaven is arm apart

You who have reached deep within my soul
You’re wandering through my life like a breath

Once more I lonely raise my arms
To you, to whom I flee, to whom I flee

You who have reached deep within my soul
You’re wandering through my life like a breath

You who have reached deep within my soul
For your grace this feeble hymn will praise

*****

ALBUM: FOR ALL AND NONE

On a Hill

In the land of grand delusion
I’m standing on a hill
I can see for miles and miles
Light is leaving the scene

There are some pleasant places
Blanketed with cool mist
The last dim light leads my way
Down to distant plains

Wind in my face, the sun shines in my hands
Stars at my feet, the river runs faster

Heavy horses carrying
All across tormentend land
The queer is now dear to me
The night is beautiful

The stars above glow so bright
They draw us into space and time
Like ancient marble gods
They watch us peacefully

Wind in my face, the sun shines in my hands
Stars at my feet, the river runs faster
Throughout the ages and floats on the breeze
Across the sea, a shimmer of flood tide

Morning comes with golden hue
Warms the limbs of naked land
And I’m trying so hard to look
Straight into the sun

Wind in my face, the sun shines in my hands
Stars at my feet, the river runs faster
Throughout the ages and floats on the breeze
Across the sea, a shimmer of flood tide

*****

Away to Harbourside

Shapless afternoon
Tearful eyes from wind and cold
Standing lost in tranquil thought
in front of a shopwindow
Red lights in the snowy street 
below the trees turn green
Away to harbourside

You have faith in nights
concrete and lights
But no one will know
Buildings yearn so high
move all the way around

Fleeting sensations
Soulles and cold
Waves of the past fade deep into dark 

Stillness of existence 
flowing through the walls
Morbid souls trembling 
Pigeons shake their wings 
Plateglass faces, traffic lanes
struggling up the street
Away to harbourside

You have faith in nights
concrete and lights
But no one will know
Buildings yearn so high
move all the way around

Fleeting sensations
Soulles and cold
Waves of the past fade deep into dark
Fleeting sensations

*****

Overtaken

I climb up the mountain of primeval pain
Ravines and ridges and what do I, what do I find
Oh, sombre evergreen the season of interior year
Oh, generations keep blossoming and withering 

Over, overtaken

I’m looking backwards down at the world
Breath changing into words then back to breath
Oh, even higher up, stars of the land of pain
Oh, constellations glow brightly as lines on my palm

Over, overtaken

Oh, what a winding trace, pines claw my face
Oh, I can feel the wind rising, at dawn, I will fly

Over, overtaken

*****

True As A Dream

Do what you want to, I do what I just want to do 
Too young for what’s old, too old for what’s never been
What do I desire is something you want me to see 
Again and again you’re sending me signals to read
You the sweetest friend, walk with, walk with me

Do what you want to, I do what I just want to do 
And if you are the dreamer then I will be all what you dream
Deep in the water and surfing the waves with a wind
And in all its power a realm of all motions unseen 
You the sweetest friend swim with, swim with me

We can do what we want to, we do what we just want to do 
What we’ll do in the summer is something you already knew
We go through the mirror making the dreams of night true
We are full and we cover the air, this planet, this moon
You the sweetest friend breathing, breathing in

*****

Here I Stand

I held myself too open 
It made me feel I’m dirt
And I lingered in my weakness

I freed myself from giving
I freed myself from work, stayed alone

Here I stand
I start to feel an emotion
It walks me through the empty places

Drawn at a moment’s impulse
There’s no right nor wrong
I sit back and gaze in wonder 

I can see a path and a picture
Frames are growing into cosmic space

Here I stand
I start to feel an emotion
It walks me through the empty places

*****

The Last Time

Frightful to my senses are
Spitting holes and gurgling throats
Curse you, evil eyes
I keep running, where do I run?

Fades away, comes back again
Leaves me feeling bleak and frail
There’s no easy way
All the symptoms seem to say

And I will…

Sharp tongues like razor blades 
Voracious bodies seek the prey 
Why am I drawn to this?
Do I jump in the waves?

Fades away, comes back again
Leaves me feeling bleak and frail
There’s no easy way
All the symptoms seem to say

Hopes come out at night
If only I don’t suffocate
The last time, this is the last time
and then I’m out of this place

Fades away, comes back again
Leaves me feeling bleak and frail
There’s no easy way
All the symptoms seem to say

And I will forget you
I’ll drown you

*****

Lucid Sound

Oh don’t be sad, I know it’s bad to be alone again
No, don’t think that you’re going mad
You’re quite sane my friend

None remembers your name
And a winter night never seem to end
Even in that silence with growing light, lucid sound appears

Summer’s ease is a waking dream, colours fade to gray
Though it seems that you go by feel 
You will find your way

None remembers your name
And a winter night never seem to end
Even in that silence with growing light, lucid sound appears

*****

The Walk

In the heat of the morning sun
He sits down by a dark pine tree
It moves and creaks and speaks to him
So sweet and low from the deep 

“You wanderer, you must walk 
Winding vales and great hills 
Deers carry you, if you fall,
Without fear and trembling”

High upon a cold and windy hill 
A vulture screams and lands from the clouds
It moves its wings and speaks to him
Its piercing voice wakes him from his dream 

“You wanderer, you must walk 
Murky woods and marshes 
Pass through the night, don’t look back
And never stand still” 

He marches on, never rests
Not knowing where his path will lead 
Winding vales and great hills 
Never looking backwards 

*****

Summer’s Day

Late summer’s day we met, Melancholie 
It was supposed to be so sweet
You looked me in the eye directly
The worn out sun set over me

Ever since you’ve been my friend
Cool summer breeze on my face 
Come over here and sit beside me by the birch tree 
Dragonflies breeding 
Feel the last scent of the roses

A partner in my sorrow’s mysteries
Veiled in beauty and lilies
The end of the day will come too drowsily
Time’s release is a memory

Ever since you’ve been my friend
Cool summer breeze on my face 
Come over here and sit beside me by the birch tree 
Dragonflies breeding
Feel the last scent of the roses

In a dream they came for me
I woke up shivering

Ever since you’ve been my friend
Cool summer breeze on my face 
Come over here and sit beside me by the birch tree 
Dragonflies breeding
Feel the last scent of the roses
