The Actor Daily recognizing, hourly - a dead surprising: "every second's a chance to change my life" Years gone by and the hope retired, to cancel my subscription of an actor life. The smile screams in the corner, of its self-build prison. What began as a joke turned into the daily truth. Daily recognizing, hourly - a dead surprising: "every second's a chance to change my life" Slipping through twice universes, fulfill the two-headed role: the ghost with the clown mask. The smile screams in the corner, of its self-build prison. What began as a joke turned into the daily truth. I peel back all of my skin, rip away all of my time, rewind the life, that wasn't one and rebirth as a fantasy. The smile screams in the corner, of its self-build prison. What began as a joke turned into the daily truth. The make-up merges with the body, but it cannot change my soul!

Dreamsore Bubbling suppurate, hope and fail flow to abyss, blow up the bond. Dead people - dead surroundings as the ballad fades away. Great in the head - child in the soul, tormenting on both sides. Fall into the nightmare of everyday, locked up in the cold - warm room. Dead people - dead surroundings as the ballad fades away. Great in the head - child in the soul, tormenting on both sides. Now - crossroads. Now - Tarred youth. Dreamsore Now - crossroads. Now - Tarred youth. Great in the head - child in the soul, tormenting on both sides.

Confused I see the white wolf Running It reminds me to escape I see the white bird Flying It reminds me to escape I see the white shark Hunting Go !!! So many voices are quarreling in my head Is white really white or maybe even red ? And I stand between wisdom and stupidity Everybody sells its own truth with dignity I’m so confused Help me just to Make it right I don’t want to hide What counts is not To stay alive Influenced by a real lasting straightness I want to revolt against boundless laziness Indifferent standpoints corrode the personal roots … I’m so confused Help me just to Make it right I don’t want to hide What counts is not To stay alive

The Illusion I slowly open my eyes and touch into the invisible warmth, lying peacefully next to me and is never dying. I start the trip of searching: the real person, once lying there. But after every movement, it becomes clearer: IT'S ALL AN ILLUSION! At the edge of my perception I found hurt and lonely people like me, but they all where silent actors in an observation. I've tried to break my natural cycles, to calm down my twin-like soul, but all I've found WAS AN ILLUSION! On this trip the only thing you could find was an exhausted gloomy mirror. He cannot speak, but he can hear you scream. After the walk into the gloomy mirror, the reflecting end of my trip, I cut my arm and shade my eyes in expectation of a new morning. On this trip the only thing you could find was an exhausted gloomy mirror. He cannot speak, but he can hear you scream. On this trip the only answer you could find was an exhausted gloomy mirror. He cannot speak because he heard too much.

Creative Oh, what do I see ? Is it clear ? I’ve looked for words That sound good Will that be enough ? Oh, where do I go ? Now I’m clear I’ve never thought That it works Feel it coming Creative lights Make my soul alive Exciting rides Through my inner life I’m writing down My lines of thought I’m running up and down When I come to naught Creative lights Exciting rides Oh, can I relax ? I’ll never stop To look behind What I’d do I’ll scrutinize it Creative lights Make my soul alive Exciting rides Through my inner life I’m writing down My lines of thought I’m running up and down When I come to naught

Tide Is Turning I come to an old and strange town house And get a welcome from a floating mouse. I see clear faces of chairs and tables smiling The dripping fog in the lamps is shining Narrow opinions have started burning Voices whispering in room three There’s no one there only a living sea A wave is foaming: Get out of your personal mind jail I hesitate and my face turns pale Then doubts dive into a slurping ceiling Tide is turning Change your mind So much learning Search and find Narrow opinions have started burning Soft stairs lead me to the roof Sweet smells pass my way Turning carpets don’t want to stop to move They blow clouds away Now the tide is turning, now the tide is turning Now the tide is turning, now the tide is turning Tide is turning Change your mind So much learning Search and find Narrow opinions have started burning I leave this old and wise town house Understood the signs now I think it new

Quite Near Jewels are not enough to pay For this happiness It’s like a cold heart in a fire Melting the emptiness Time has no meaning And she feels greatest peace ‘Cause heaven is quite near Give her hope that warms Hold her in your arms Give her all the strength That she will need Get the sweetest smile And touches for a while You can get this love That you will need Being afraid of this new challenge She tries to sleep But doubts fill her dreams So she’s not able to have trust Facing these fears She will increase enormous faith ‘Cause heaven is quite near Give her hope that warms Hold her in your arms Give her all the strength That she will need Get the sweetest smile And touches for a while You can get this love That you will need She makes her higher than a dream And let these kisses taste like cream Love is what she’ll always give Into her heart that learns to live

Hate This Place Move blameless Be faultless Crush weakness Moodiness And tenderness I hate this place I hate this place Always there To be fair Much to bear Few to dare Fears aren’t to share I hate this place I hate this place I hate this place I hate this place I hate this place I hate this place I hate this place I hate this place

New Kind of Living Longing for happiness Looking for gentleness I’m just convinced That I’ve found it now Begging for your devotion Thirsty for your emotion You’re even able to paralyze my mind My whole life is lying in your hands But you Just throw my doubts away Waking up in the morning My trust in you is forming This timeless moments are real life for me In my mind’s eye you’re always be placed as my girl That is beaming with joy Close to you I feel it all new A new kind of loving A new kind of living at all Burned out my past To write a new one fast In which you’re the only aim A new kind of living at all You’ll show me your emotions If we walk over oceans I keep on falling ‘Cause you’ll rescue me What I’ve hoped for is coming true now And I’m sure That you got to be my big world

Veracity He moves through his life like a tough Pharisee Convinced that his way Is the only right key Ignoring own sins He could never support a good growth that begins This is one of his better days God is listening when he prays And he stops hiding behind a face And gives untainted life its place He’s sure that he’s strong But one question’s always: Could that be wrong ? This is one of his better days God is listening when he prays And he stops hiding behind a face And gives untainted life its place Again and again he wants to be a king To have the full power to do his right thing Just saying true words won’t stop him to lose Veracity means so much more than the truth This is one of his better days God is listening when he prays And he stops hiding behind a face And gives untainted life …

Meet Twice This is the day to stop his play. We are oppressed but ready to protest. He torments, he steals, lies and destroys … You always meet twice in a lifetime Maybe our path will cross again This is the point of no return. Remember my words, the evil will burn. He torments, he steals, lies and destroys, credulous people became his toy … You always meet twice in a lifetime Maybe our path will cross again Hate’s in the air, shadows on the floor ‘cause he cannot bear he opens the door. Maybe our path will cross again You always meet twice in a lifetime You always meet twice in a lifetime Maybe our path will cross again

The Voice Guess there’s emptiness right in your head every time you think of me You’ll never understand (‘cause your) creativity’s not bad and I like it to see Giving some more lines flowing through the air and won’t make it to science let me find it somewhere I lost my input I lost my input My mind is not wide open trying hard to listen finding nothing but silence Maybe I never hear a word again you won’t be in my shoes and I wish to climb this fence Giving some more lines flowing through the air and won’t make it to science let me find it somewhere I lost my input I lost my input
