A Safe Look in Mirrors
Am I ever gonna get out of this alive?
My life is hanging by a thread
It's a rough deal that we're in, yes you and I
Just face the scene, you won't regret, no

A safe look in mirrors, just getting clearer
And nothing's really said
Visions of dream that entertain us
Show your number when they call your name

Do the men who wear their suits like a lie
Crack their fingers in the pain?
A safe look in mirrors, just getting clearer
But nothing's really said

Watching the world through a glass
Living with dirty hands
I wish I could be here to see
I just wanna be
Where we together stand
The promised land?

Run away with me, get some air for a while
Understand there's no time to waste
Feel the change with me, don't have fear inside
Will tomorrow be just another day?

As we're looking for the saints in you and I
Heads are rolling from the beds
A crack in the mirrors, not getting clearer
And nothing's really said

Watching the world through a glass
Living with dirty hands
I wish I could be here to see
I just wanna be
Where we together stand
The promised land?

Watching the world through a glass
Living with dirty hands
I wish I could be here to see
I just wanna be
Where we together stand
The promised land?

Run away with me, get some air for a while
Understand there's no time to waste
Feel the change with me, don't have fear inside
Will tomorrow be just another day?
 
 
Nothing to Lose
See there's the new stranger in town
It sure looks like he's been around
With his big casino-smile, he plays the whole night
To the cheering of the crowd, yeah

Willing ladies, but all for a price
Sticky fingers on the ice
As the nose is turned white
He rolls with the dice
Deception in the night

The psychologic terror
Fills the whole air with defeat
But he's clear in his mind, he's one of a kind
Real cool, he can take the heat

He's got nothing to lose, no nothing at all
He's got nothing to lose at all, no

There's no place to make an error
No time to fall into sleep
But his nose has turned white
He rolls with the dice
Real cool, getting in too deep

But there's nothing to lose, no nothing at all
There's nothing to lose at all

With a grin he's waiting for his turn
He forgets there's always more to learn
'Cos the winner's prize is the loser's eyes
Deception in the night

This psychologic terror
Fills the whole air with defeat
But he was clear in his mind, he's one of a kind
Real cool, got in too deep

He's had nothing to lose, no nothing at all
He's had nothing to lose at all, no
He's had nothing to lose, no nothing at all
He's had nothing to lose at all, no
 
 
Just a Little Closer
If we're getting closer, like some maintain, to the end
I apologize for the things I've done and said
But as you walk the line and move on
You realize it might be too late
'Cos when the hunting's done
The pain comes back again and again

But take away your fear now, I think tomorrow there is a hope
To regain our strength and save the things we know
There is laughter, there is cry
And we are placed upon a slope
So the choice is set between the high and low

To see what's behind the door
There's nothing more to fear
I'm feeling really near
With so much strength to carry on

Just a little closer, just a little closer

Reaching out for the one
I'd like to take me through all this waste
I just need a hand and together we'll be safe
To hear what's behind the call
There's so much more for me
I'm drifting on a sea
With so much strength to carry on

Just a little closer, just a little closer

So much left to wish for
But the crown on your neighbours head
I guess I close my eyes and dream of freedom instead
And when I'm reaching out for the one
I'd like to take me through all his waste
I just need a hand and together we'll be safe

To dream of another world
There's so much more in me
I'm drifting on a see
With so much strength to carry on

Just a little closer, just a little closer
Just a little closer, just a little closer
 
 
What's It Gonna Be
Out there on my mission
And I'm usually dressed in black
I'm fetching my nutrition
As I feed my heart-attack

I face tomorrow with the same old plastic smile
Think I can escape what I deny

A struggle for positions
The race could break your neck
The front-page brings the news of missing kids
What the heck

Dreaming as you go mad
Bleeding really bad

What's it gonna be?
Give it all to me
Black

Dreaming as you go mad
Bleeding really bad

What's it gonna be?
Give it all to me
What's it gonna be
Living to be free

Dancing on the edge
As if your mind is getting sick
Swearing for yourself
And still the higher boot you lick

We face tomorrow with the same old plastic smile
Think we escape what we deny
Replace the sorrow with an empty bag of lies
Then cross your heart and hope to die, my friend

What's it gonna be?
Give it all to me
What's it gonna be
Living to be free
What's it gonna be?
Give it all to me
What's it gonna be
Living to be free
 
 
Dream On
Welcome to the land that might never be
It wouldn't stand a chance, like other things I've seen
All those places I've been around, I hear the same old fear
People are crying out loud, "serve my every need!"

Can you describe what you're feeling everytime you stand?
Abandoned by the window, watching every man

Sometimes I wish I'd fly up to the sky
But I don't have a reason to say goodbye

Dream on
Set your mind to go
Are sad things you remember good things to know?
To know...

Searching for the right things to believe
Each day a higher goal to achieve
Somewhere in the end, before I go
Are dreams made of paper? I'd like to know

Dream on
Set your mind to go
Are sad things you remember good things to know?

Welcome to the land that might never be
It wouldn't stand a chance like other things I've seen

Sometimes I wish I'd fly up to the sky
But I don't have a reason to say goodbye

Dream on
Set your mind to go
Are sad things you remember good things to know?
Dream on
Set your mind to go
Are sad things you remember good things to know?
Dream on
Just dream on
Dream on
Set your mind to go
 
 
Taken Away
Shivering, smelling ideas that possessed us
No one to face but the fear that ate up all inside
Memories brought back through a dispatch of feelings
Filled up with sadness I pace down the alley of time

Flak and lights, they were seen
Metal rear with beauty queens
In a cry of help they did their deed

Taken away
For a reason I must escape
Taken away
And the children cried

Desperate, failing ideas that obsessed us
Nothing but hatred to rule what went on in our minds

Flak and lights, they were seen
Metal rear with beauty queens
As the clock hit twelve they did their deed

Taken away
For a reason I must escape
Taken away
And the children cried
Taken away
For a reason I must escape
Taken away
And the children cried
 
 
When the Light Is Comin' Down
When it's cold I feel the planet turn
Reversing, forever in time, round and round
Feel so alive as I play on the ground (feel so alive)
A little wind in my face and I learn
What summer's like in the heat with all it's sounds
Under the sky I might get burned (under the sky)

Again I long for the sun
I wanna embrace the days as they're going on
A lifetime to see and learn
A lifetime to grow in mind and to get strong

Memories of a broken past
Are dealt with, right up in my head at long last
The reasons why I seem to know (yeah, he knows)

Think of the years that are gone
And still I'm drifting further in my mind
As I raise my hands up high

When the light is coming down
We've turned around
When the light is coming down

A deep breath, the season's getting near
The air fills me with a little fear
I wonder how many pages are turned (what has he learned?)

The night breaks in to dawn
The day gets long as we're praised by the sun
A lifetime to see and learn
A lifetime to grow in mind and to get strong

When the light is coming down
We've turned around
When the light is coming down

Through the white snow and through my fear
I hope the season's coming near
But still the ice is on the ground

Again I long for the sun
I wanna embrace the days as they're going on
A lifetime to see and learn
A lifetime to grow in mind and to get strong
So I raise my hands up high

When the light is coming down
We've turned around
When the light is coming down
We've turned around
The night breaks in to dawn
As I'm drifting further in my mind
Yeah, in my mind
Drifting further
Drifting further
In my mind
 
 
The Lonely
Hanging on to pictures I hide
Like a secret to myself
As you appear there with your Egyptian eyes
There is no-one else

Yes, your face came out of the unknown
When my dream was visualized
I feel like drifting with my love
But nowhere is paradise

Night after night you keep me lonely
So much left to feel, yeah
Night after night you are the one
That I pretend is for real

Your shape's bend in colours
But nothing is really what it seems
I'm aware of this stupid lie
Made up in my dreams

Through the years I earned my wisdom
Things always came always to an end
But I wipe away my tears
I don't want to feel afraid

Night after night you keep me lonely
So much left to feel, yeah
Night after night you are the one
That I pretend is for real
Yeah, you're for real

You keep me lonely
I'm stuck with myself

Night after night you keep me lonely
So much left to feel, yeah
Night after night you are the one
That I pretend is for real
You keep me lonely
So much left to feel, yeah
Night after night you are the one
That I pretend is for real
Yes, you're for real
Yeah, night after night you keep me lonely, babe
You make me lonely, yeah
So lonely
 
 
Journey
By the lake we stopped, the air was getting thin
Lips were frozen, where's the food, what did you bring?
Endless miles, no living souls to be seen
Just a sight almost made of my beautiful dreams
Why don't we move on?

Neverending towers as you're passing through the streets
Gotta get out, gotta get out on my way, what could I meet?
Wellhung commercials are to spread their seed
As the people they think; Oh I wish it were me
Why don't we move on?

The whispers we heed
Makes us kiss goodbye and break away to meet
The right to be that we all defend

I'd like to stay but I'll be gone
You see there's no more to say
'Cos I know just where I belong
Never away, all alone as if I'm lost
Always a memory of home that I can trust
If there is one

See the wings above, I wonder where they've been
The lust for moving, I can feel it deep within
Endless miles just new things to be seen
And a sight almost made of my beautiful dreams
The journey goes on

The whispers we heed
Makes us kiss goodbye and break away to meet
The right to be that we all defend
The whispers we heed
Makes us kiss goodbye and break away to meet
The right to be that we all defend
 
 
Up the Aisle
This fortress of love
That was just built up through many years
There is comfort to find
A shelter in life from the fear
Just to walk side by side
Hand in hand and then disappear

Into this dream-world
Where the game is played by the right
Where you cover the one 
You saved through your sacrifice

Blessed by the one
That would never leave you behind
And blessed by the ring
You should wear on your finger
Until the day you die

See their eyes
Up the aisle
They are blinded by faith
Black and white
Such a pretty sight
To be as one they're gathered today

So you pass the temptations
On the road that you walk through your life
And it's just for the one
Who kept you warm in the night

See their eyes
Up the aisle
They are blinded by faith
Black and white
Such a pretty sight
To be as one they're gathered today

Just to walk on your own
Leaves you empty deep inside
Without joy in your heart
No, nothing to carry but pride

Into this dream-world
Where the game is played by the right
Where you cover the one
You saved through your sacrifice

See their eyes
Up the aisle
They are blinded by faith
Black and white
Such a pretty sight
To be as one they're gathered today
See their eyes
Up the aisle
They are blinded by faith
