Lust for Life
Comin' out of misery, back to the old energy, takin' part in our daily show.
Think of what has been before, made a move and slammed the door.
Future will remain in the unknown.

Face the face of the race, try to understand.
Why are we here and what do we want,
The answer is easy, let's spread it around.

Loud and proud, we're gonna say it now,
Live-Life-Easy
Live-Life-Easy
Live-Life-Easy

Many things to think about, bring me up or bring me down
A lot of things I hardly understand.
What is good and what is fair, problems solved, but I don't care
Sometimes it's just getting out of hand.

Face the face of the race, try to understand.
I know that you know that we can be strong
If we pull together, we can get along

Loud and proud, we're gonna say it now,
Live-Life-Easy
Live-Life-Easy
Live-Life-Easy

Let us fly away, let us praise the days
When the lust for the life is stronger than the fear.
Though we shiver and shake and we sometimes need a break.
It's the lust for life that never disappears.

Loud and proud, we're gonna say it now,
Live-Life-Easy
Live-Life-Easy
Live-Life-Easy
 
 
Heaven Can Wait
Too many people, too much trouble, too many problems in the morn.
Another sunrise in the rubble, another ship sunk by the storm.
Some little angel tries to tell me that it's over.
It's just a bad reflection from above.
The load upon my shoulder makes me stronger, even bolder.
Oh no no, I haven't had enough.

Heaven can wait, 'til another day.
Cause there ain't no reason to leave.
The world is a stage where we all can play.
Another fine reason to live, and heaven can wait, heaven can wait.

Each day a new reason to give up, each day another reason to sigh.
A hundred thousand ways to live up, a hundred thousand ways to try.
Hey, little angel, don't you tell me that it's over.
You're just a bad reflection from above.
The load upon my shoulder gives me reasons to get older.
Tell the boss I haven't had enough.

Heaven can wait, 'til another day.
Cause there ain't no reason to leave.
The world is a stage where we all can play.
Another fine reason to live, and heaven can wait, heaven can wait.
Heaven can wait, let it wait, let it wait, let it wait.
Our eyes are close but they should be open wide
Let's listen to the voice that's calling from inside.
Let's stay alive and move on, on our way
And heaven can wait, heaven can wait.
Heaven - can wait
'Til another day.
 
 
Space Eater
You know who I am, show you a land
Where you can be free, can get your relief.
Space is all yours, desires come true.
Love of your life waitin' for you.

I got no time for wasting all my day,
Come on and follow, follow me away.
Spaceeater - you're losing control
Spaceeater - and I own your soul

I'll make you happy ain't no lie,
Come eat my space, you're gonna fly.
Let me control your senses,
And lose your mind, your worries inside.

I got no time to stand and waste my day,
Come on and follow, follow me away.
Spaceeater - you're losing control
Spaceeater - and I own your soul.

A little bit, a little bit, a little sip, a little hit
You're drowning in a lustry whirl, be superman or wondergirl.
Oh, we fly away on supersonic dreams, we ride on universal starshine,
Through space.
I got no time to stand and waste my day.
Come on and follow, follow me away,
Spaceeater
Spaceeater
 
 
Free Time
The weekend comes, I'm gonna see my baby.
I close the door and leave everything behind
I hit the road, the sun is shining down so brightly
Five more miles and I'm lying in her arms.

Now her motions turn me on, and I'm gonna sing my song.
Free time is one of the things that I love,
Free time is one of the things I enjoy.

The sun goes down, we're gonna see a movie.
How happy life could be without any work.
There ain't no doubt we're gonna have a party.
'Til Monday morning, noone can disturb.

Now her motions turn me on, and I'm gonna sing my song.
Free time is one of the things that I love,
Free time is one of the things I enjoy.
Free time - we want more.
 
 
Who Do You Think You Are?
Lookin' for a lady, walkin' through the bar
Supercool 'n' easy, he's a superstar
Talkin' to the cutie, looking pretty shy
"Move your hips around and make me smile"
"I'm the one you're looking for
'cause I am the guy"
She just turns around and says:
"Kiss my ass goodbye"

Who do you think you are, to look at me like this
Who do you think you are, not a single kiss
Who do you think you are, you're talking much to loud
Who do you think you are, get back into the crowd

Now he's getting closer, gettin' in my sight
Oh my God he's seen me, it's too late to hide
Heavy Metal monkey, silly looks and walk
Rock 'n' Roll pretender, now he starts to talk

"Nice to see you. how's it going?"
bla bla bla
I say why don't you turn around
And get back to the bar

Who do you think you are, to talk to me like this
Who do you think you are, I got you on my list
Who are you, you're talking much to loud
Who do you think you are, get back into the crowd

Solos: Kai, Uwe, Dirk, Uli, Dirk, harmony both, Kai

Who do you think you are, to talk to me like this
Who do you think you are, I got you on my list
Who do you think you are, you're talking much to loud
Who do you think you are, get back into the crowd
 
 
The Silence
When you're drowning, when you're freezin', when you're feeling cold
There's a light in the darkness as the elder always told.
When the winter's coming closer and the autumn's passing by,
Then the world will sink in slience and I think we all should try.
Oh, I wanna live my life in a fairy tale
Where the end is always good and never sad.
Show me the way to another world
Where the sun is always shining in the and

And we fight back the tears, and we lose our fears,
Let the world remain in silence for a while
Sun in our minds in a world full of ice,
Let silence remain for a little while.

Somebody came and slammed the door,
took the feelin' away from our hearts.
And the horror took hold of a place in our hearts filled with love.

What is left behind the ice, behind the make up and the lies
Tell me what goes on inside our mindss,
There is a hole in our sky, getting bigger, growing wide
No more answer, but we hold the line - uh, yeah -
See and hear what we have done to us all,
we wanna be free more than anything,
Do you hear what I say to you?
We will make it through, the sun shall shine.

Hear the words we say and see the light of day
We never will be free until the sun is shining for us all
Carry on, carry on and make our dreams come true
And for a little while we stay together
Carry on, carry on, may all our lovin' stay
And for a little while we stay together, forever
Together, forever.
 
 
Save Us
Too late to call for the priest
He is not here anymore
We look at the age of the beast
And we've seen its vast armies form
Hear our call

Chorus:
Please, save us
Please, save us

In permanent madness we live
No time for life and for love
To take is the rule, not to give
Insanity comes from below
To take us all

Chorus:
Please, save us
Please, save us

We believe that the phenomena of nature
Are the expression of infinitive intelligence
We express our belief that all forms of life
Are manifestations of spirit
And thus, all men are children of God

Far from down below one comes prepared to take us all
Waiting for his future and the final call

We stand on the edge of the world
Just one step more and we fall
Guide us and please take our hands
Without you we're weak and alone
Hear our call

Chorus:
Please, save us
Please, save us

Now!

Save us - from the gods of thunder
Save us - from the dogs of war
Save us - from the creeping nightmares
Save us - from the evil's course
Save us - from our own ignorance
Save us - from the man in black
Save us - from the desolation
Save us - from the hate attack
Save us - oh please
Save us - please save us
Save us - oh please
Save us - now!
 
 
I Want Out
From our lives' beginning on
We are pushed in little forms
No one asks us how we like to be
In school they teach you what to think
But everyone says different things
But they're all convinced that
They're the ones to see

Bridge:
So they keep talking and they never stop
And at a certain point you give it up
So the only thing that's left to think is this

Chorus:
I want out - to live my life alone
I want out - leave me be
I want out - to do things on my own
I want out - to live my life and to be free

People tell me A and B
They tell me how I have to see
Things that I have seen already clear
So they push me then from side to side
They're pushing me from black to white
They're pushing 'til there's nothing more to hear

Bridge:
But don't push me to the maximum
Shut your mouth and take it home
'Cause I decide the way things gonna be

Chorus:
I want out - to live my life alone
I want out - leave me be
I want out - to do things on my own
I want out - to live my life and to be free

There's a million ways to see the things in life
A million ways to be the fool
In the end of it, none of us is right
Sometimes we need to be alone

No no no, leave me alone

Chorus:
I want out - to live my life alone
I want out - leave me be
I want out - to do things on my own
I want out - to live my life and to be free
 
 
Ride the Sky / Hold Your Ground
Ride The Sky

Much too long I've been a prisoner here
The hour has come to break out
Shackled and chained almost goin' insane
It's better to live on the run
Set me free, set me free

Send me a sign, wanna leave it all behind
I'll be leaving the hands of doom
Rearrange the master plan, take the future in my hands
To be free and not trapped anymore

Ride the sky, ride the sky
Give me wings to fly, ride the sky

I have to think for myself and then act
In conformity of my own thoughts
No one should tell me what's wrong and what's right
Why don't you leave me alone
Set me free, set me free

Ride the sky, ride the sky
Give me wings to fly, ride the sky


Hold Your Ground

They sneak around, they spy your mind,
Your unborn child's a number on their way
Into the grey.
Insanity, they steal your dreams,
They promise everything but they betray
Day after day.

Hold your ground, or tomorrow it will be taken.
Hold your ground, or tomorrow it will be taken.
Tomorrow it will be taken.
 
 
Money
I don't need no money, I will stuck to my ideals.
You better get some money, you better get yourself a deal.
I won't change my habits and throw it all away.
No, no, you better keep it all together for another day.

Money - uh, yeah
It only makes me sick and makes the people turn to fools.
It only gives you power and power makes the rules.
Don't wanna be an asshole that sits on dollar bills.
Ha, ha, ha, I know you'll take it no matter how you feel.

Money - uh, yeah.
Nothing will get for free, illusion or reality,
The mirror of your dreams is made of cash.
It drives me wild and drives me crazy,
Makes me fat, and makes me lazy.

Anything you want, anything you need
Anything you want, anything you need
If I had a little money I would feel okay.

It is money that rules the world, it is money that lights the day.
It is money that makes it work, it is money that makes you live!

Money, money, money, money
Give me money - everybody wants some.
Everybody needs some.
I want more, you want more, we want more, they want more.
Nothing you will get for free, illusion or reality.

Anything you want, anything you need,
Anything you want, anything you need,
You can have a little more bu still won't feel okay
It is money that rules the world, it is money that lights the day.
It is money that money that makes it work,
It is money that makes you live!
Hey, hey - Money - yeah, Money - yeah, Money - yeah, Money
 
 
Heading for Tomorrow
Time has passed in the modern world
Where the madmen live and speak their word.
Life in hand they deal with god.
Put a trademark sign up on everyone.

God bless the children, freedom is their word.
Freedom freedom 'til they learn to obey.
Don't fear the liars, reason is their name.
Reason, reason, play a silly game.
Where will the children go tomorrow?

Is anybody there to claim
That he understands our human game?
We can make a prophecy,
Oh we can't say what is going to be.

Where are we going, and what is our aim?
Freedom, freedom, locked inside our brains
So many answers, reason is their name,
Reason, reasonm, the question will remain,
Where will the children go tomorrow?

Hey you, where do you go? - Heading for tomorrow
Hey you, where do you go? - Heading for tomorrow
Hey you, where do you go? - Heading for tomorrow
Hey you, where do you go!
When we are born, tell me what is our aim?

And what will be when society fails?
we are heading for tomorrow, we don't know if we are near.
When we are gone, tell me what will remain?
And what will be when society fails?
We are heading for tomorrow but we don't know if we're near.
