Firestorm
This place, home for all generations, never's been to small
When all life worked hand in hand
The centuries passed one by one
Without changing the circumstances
That we needed to be there

Like a firestorm
When all home dies and fear is born
To feed the firestorm
Like a firestorm
That burns the ground you're standing on
We'll feed the firestorm

And then - slowly but surely -
Explorers and inventors stepped into
The system they didn't understand
That's when the trouble began
And when the time marched on
They had learned how to destroy

Like a firestorm...

The end of the story is: nothing's impossible
And that's what we're afraid of
Apocalyptic signs, our homestead stands in flames
Guess we missed the lesson modesty

Like a firestorm...
 
 
Solitary Man
Since a while I thought 'bout leaving here
I can see no way to get it clear
Under you I feel misunderstood
In this respectable neighbourhood

Hey, don't look for me no more
'Cause I won't be coming home

I'm just a solitary man
I'm gonna leave you now alone
Well, I'm a solitary man
I feel so strange here, do you know?

I have heard they're tellin' tales 'bout me
Find me weird and most unusually
Can't you see that I'm just doing my way?
Live it out what you all just pretend

I don't need no company
If I did I'd look for better

I'm just a solitary man
I'm gonna leave you now alone
Well, I'm a solitary man
It may seem strange to you, I know

I don't need this bullshit anymore
I'm stepping out, I'm gonna close the door
Will I ever reach the point of it
When I wear a suit that does not fit?

I'm just a solitary man...
 
 
Don't Fear the Winter
Autumn - the time of darkness and decay
Life's running shorter day by day

Winter - has gripped the land in cold caress
He's all alone and deeply depressed, she's dead

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, nothing's gonna
Do you harm

Midnight - and on the graveyard a storm is RAGEing
The clods of earth hide his whole life

Homeless - who's lonely now will be for long
The wind will drift him on and on, like the leaves

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, come with me,
There'll be no harm

A silent might that has moved you
Hear your waters stand still
Striding down to the elder
Soon you'll meet her again

Autumn - who's got the time knows nothing yet
Who cares?  But watchful are the Dead

Midnight - It's hard to face and deeply sad
But you're asleep so don't look back, you're dead

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, nothing's gonna
Do you harm
Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, come with me,
There'll be no harm
 
 
Refuge
This is mine, here's where my home is
I don't want to let you break into my world
All my life I've been looking for something
That's my own, I'm so glad I found it now

Don't you step on this ground
I don't want to lose an inch of my freedom
I'll lose my soul if you steal my refuge

Leave my cloud and stay away
This is my refuge
Play your dirty tricks, my friend
But leave my refuge

I grow stronger and you feel smaller
Guess that's your reason for taking up my time
With every secret that you make public
Your influence on my life grows, ain't this true?

Don't step on this ground
I don't want to lose an inch of my freedom
I'll lose my soul if you steal my refuge
Leave my cloud and stay away
This is my refuge
Play your dirty tricks, my friend
But leave my refuge
Leave my refuge
 
 
Who Dares
Why do you look for answers in the extremes?  Forget the radical
'Cause the truth is mostly somewhere in between
Nevermind the simple minded as long their heart beats in the right place,
But for heaven's sake if they forgot their aims (and to tell their kids)

Now they are trapped and they don't even care
Still they don't understand what it means
Dimborn they never have learned anything
They are trapped in a world reigned in fear

Who dares to stop these fools?

We need revolution - someone has to change the crusted rites
But we need heads that can think before they act
'Cause it has to happen in a way that changes the conditions for the better
There's no time for old mistakes

Now they are trapped...

Who dares to stop these fools?

Brutality is trendy, discussing's for old farts
Today the cracked voice of youth screams out the fatal fascists call
All the mindless, unwanted, frustrated think that there's a way to bring sense in their life
They confuse the Free with lemmings...

Now they are trapped...

Who dares to stop these fools?
 
 
Questions
And did they teach you love?
Yes, they did but poor and hidden.
And did they teach you death?
Yes, they did but just a part of it.

What does that mean, a part of it?
It means that they taught us how to kill
They taught it and they practised it
They never told us how to die
Death's place in life and how to face it,
See how sad they end their lives...

And if I ask these questions
What would you say if the answer's given the same time?
And if you know these questions
Why can't you see that it's more than just a state of mind?

And did they teach to hate?
Yes, they taught it and they stirred it
On the so-called enemy
Not on the own misery.

What did they do with their own lives?
They only did what you'd expect
After the lessons they had had,
They've never seen the other way
The might freedom in their minds
They will never reach their size.

And if I ask these questions
What would you say if the answer's given the same time?
And if you know these questions
Why can't you see that it's more than just a state of mind?

In a way we're data banks
Informations collectors
And all worse that we contend
Is a false program inside
We just need to get it right
Check it out what you have learned.

And you will learn to love
You will even learn to die
And you will learn 'bout hate
In a way that is meant.
