Black Diamond
Again I see you standing there watching me
Your gaze, those eyes are tantalizing openly
Inviting me to get close to you
Can't help myself
There's fascination in the air

I try to fight this strong sensation
But there's no chance to escape from this temptation
Feels like I've known you before
Repeating phrases
But I yearn for something more

I know I can't stay by your side forever
But I know I won't forget your beauty
My black diamond
Black Diamond
 
 
The Kiss of Judas
I hear footsteps closing in
I recognize them from my early days
The times are different the image remains the same
Repeating backflashes remembering the name

Approaching visions of things
I can't recall
A familiar smile awakes the pain

Unkept promises
The night awaits
The act of confidence
The kiss of Judas
I feel the lips on my cheek
The kiss of Judas
Haunts me once again

In your private chamber you're all alone
The well earned silver pieces falling to the Floor
The flame of the candle casting movement to the wall
Your eyes filled with guilt keep staring at the door
 
 
The Kiss of Judas
(demo version)
I hear footsteps closing in
I recognize them from my early days
The times are different the image remains the same
Repeating backflashes remembering the name

Approaching visions of things
I can't recall
A familiar smile awakes the pain

Unkept promises
The night awaits
The act of confidence
The kiss of Judas
I feel the lips on my cheek
The kiss of Judas
Haunts me once again

In your private chamber you're all alone
The well earned silver pieces falling to the Floor
The flame of the candle casting movement to the wall
Your eyes filled with guilt keep staring at the door
 
 
We Hold the Key
I'm watching as the morning sun rises
Before my very eyes
Revealing all this beauty
Questions fill my mind once again
Clearing my thoughs have I been blind
Now I see

The hole is getting bigger in the sky
Do you know the reason why nobody seems to care
Everything is so well in your life
Did you ever give a dime
To things that you really believed
The future will show
What happens to our world

We hold the key to the door
Of salvation eternally
We hold the key to minds
To the future of mankind

It's time to wake up from you dreams
To reality this can't go on believe me
If you just turn your head away
Will tomorrow be the same
Try to foresee
The future will show
What happens to our world

We hold the key to the door
Of salvation eternally
We hold the key to minds
To the future of mankind

What will we find
Mountains to climb
More destruction
And hatred we'll discover
Suddenly sounds awake me
Birds singing beautifully
Maybe there is hope still left
In this world
 
 
4th Reich
Sign of the times and writings on the wall
They show me it's time has come
Order of a new kind we will all find
Stronger than never before
Things are pretty much the same
Like in the year thirty eight
Oh won't we ever learn
This time is't gonna be different
So let's all join our hands
And let the children sing
For the last time

4th Reich is rising
Can't you see the signs
4th Reich is rising
For the last time

Let's just press more money
Don't worry about the inflation
We got to have more weapons to carry on
Unemployment and sorrow cannot be avoided at this point
But thins will be so different when they are ruling the world

4th Reich is rising
Can't you see the signs
4th Reich is rising
For the last time
What will be left to our children

Is this our final destiny
