Puppet on a String
Everyone a child of the sun
But the gap is wide open yet
So we move straight to the might
Far to some demon's delight, I know

Some of them white
They always got right
How can they dare [that] there's nothing to share

And I do, no better than anyone else,
Who's helping who, in any way
And I see, too many things not changed,
In a "thousand-years" time

Now I know, why I'm yearning
Cause life is never turning
Puppet on a string
Deliverance, roar for deliverance

And you know why I'm yearning
Cause life is never turning
Puppet on a string
Is a captive thing

Look this man is watching me
He's always been a part of me
And I see, left on the right
reflecting my body and soul, always

And I see, I look at myself into the mirror of time

Now I know why I'm yearning
Cause life is never turning
Puppet on a string
Deliverance, roar for deliverance

And you know why I'm yearning
Cause life is never turning
Puppet on a string
Is a captive thing

Save me, guardian of the poor
Watching every gamble, playing for high score

You may say I'm blind, right or wrong
Anywhere I belong
I can't deny, but my will ain't strong

All this fake
Sparkles out of gold
Did you ever die for
What your parents told

You may say I'm blind, right or wrong
Anywhere I belong
I can't deny, but my will ain't strong

Everyone a child of the sun
But the gap is wide open yet
So we move straight to the might
Far to some demon's delight, I know

Now I know why I'm yearning
Cause life is never turning
Puppet on a string
Deliverance, roar for deliverance

And you know why I'm yearning
Cause life is never turning
Puppet on a string
Is a captive thing
 
 
Frozen Under the Sun
(Dedicated to Julius father, RIP August'96)
So many ways to choose for walking
Which of this paths should I try
There is a man returning
Guess he has got a false trial

And when I ask him
Hey man, what's wrong
He smiles and answers:
I think this way's too long

Pushed and pulled at points of entry
Gateway of my chances
Back and forth - two steps, I weary
I'm frozen under the sun

Now that I've walked a thousand life-miles
Some of those miles I regret
Next bifurcation's coming
Which of two ways is the best

And when I'm asking
Oh, Lord what's right
There ain't an answer
To have the choice means fight

Pushed and pulled at points of entry
Gateway of my chances
Back and forth - two steps, I weary
I'm frozen under the sun
 
 
We Start It Tomorrow
(Dedicated to Julius father, RIP August'96)
Insanity surrounding me
Right beyond these walls
Dark corners where nurses shake the key
And quite near just behind my door
A soul leaves the corpse

I'll never accept all their reasons
What for they have done this to me
All dreams they are gone now to pieces
I'm in a mess there's no chance to flee
Why me

Forgotten prisoner they're wasting your time
Been on a mission here to create a sign
Your motivation was to change our world
Madness or genius apart
We start it tomorrow

The hate inside
Now part of me
Will burn my soul
And Jesus won't read out of my bones
So I try to get a chance
To get out of here

I'll never accept all their reasons
What for they have done this to me
All dreams they are gone now to pieces
I'm in a mess there's no chance to flee
Why me

Forgotten prisoner they're wasting your time
Been on a mission here to create a sign
Your motivation was to change our world
Madness or genius apart
We start it tomorrow
 
 
The True Stories Teller
(Dedicated to Julius father, RIP August'96)
He was a friend and was a foe
Sometimes high, sometimes low
A lion in fictitious realms
A childish hero - overwhelmed

Like the wizard of Oz
Part in the world of prose

The true-stories-teller was always the fool
He's often been blamed, he's never known rules
Gone now forever, he's telling no more
We wished we had listened before
(They wished they had listened before)

He made us laugh and furious, too
Never knew what's lies or truth
Superman in wonderland
Played the buffoon till the end

Like the wizard of Oz
Part in a world of prose

The true-stories-teller was always the fool
He's often been blamed, he's never known rules
Gone now forever, he's telling no more
We wished we had listened before
(They wished they had listened before)

Like the wizard of Oz
Part in a world of prose

The true-stories-teller was always the fool
He's often been blamed, he's never known rules
Gone now forever, he's telling no more
We wished we had listened before
(They wished they had listened before)
 
 
Tollshocked
(Dedicated to Julius father, RIP August'96)
Since we're talking, mainly upright walking
Proved true the difference of fire and ice
We've built a cardhouse waving if the wind blows
Lies may walk slowly, but they return as the truth

Tollshocked, I'm tollshocked

Black is the color of darkness and evil
White is the truth as an innocent child
Women think slow, while a man's driving speedy
All red-haired women love wild
What's up, what counts

Since we're talking, mainly upright walking
Proved true the difference of fire and ice
We've built a cardhouse waving if the wind blows
Lies may walk slowly, but they return as the truth

Tollshocked, I'm tollshocked

The pope's licking dirt on his airport-arrivals
Messages light years away from the truth
"So not use condoms" he counsels the poorest
Believes he that they need the boost
What's up, what counts

Since we're talking, mainly upright walking
Proved true the difference of fire and ice
We've built a cardhouse waving if the wind blows
Lies may walk slowly, but they return as the truth

Tollshocked, I'm tollshocked

Billy looks smart with his smile sweet as honey
Boris likes vodka much more than champagne
Manni faehrt Manta und bumst 'ne Frisuese
Red-Indians endure much more pain
What's up, what counts

Since we're talking, mainly upright walking
Proved true the difference of fire and ice
We've built a cardhouse waving if the wind blows
Lies may walk slowly, but they return as the truth

Tollshocked, I'm tollshocked
 
 
Lord Barker's Theme
(Dedicated to Julius father, RIP August'96)
(Instrumental)
 
 
Ball of the Damned
(Dedicated to Julius father, RIP August'96)
They had come far from
Been invited to Lord Barker's Ball
Not aware they would celebrate their fall

On the first day red wined flowed their bellies
Hundred feet stepped and danced
Echoes of laughter were streaming through dark vaults
Barker's eyes showed their glance

Day two was the day of mysterious games
Each winner got blood painted plates
Added like puzzles - disclosing their sense
The picture was showing their fate

They stood and stared
Paralyzed
Doors were locked
Smoke invading

Welcome to the festival
The ball of no return
Inhale the smoke

Abandoned they sucked virgins - blood
Abandoned they danced demons - rock
Hysteria was ruling, mercy not lent
Ball of the damned

Day three was the day of unbearable silence
Barker prepared the last act
Survivors were led to the chamber of violence
The basin of death had been stacked

They stood and stared
Paralyzed
Doors were locked
Smoke invading

Welcome to the festival
The ball of no return
Inhale the smoke

Abandoned they sucked virgins - blood
Abandoned they danced demons - rock
Hysteria was ruling, mercy not lent
Ball of the damned

Dipped into the mass
Gilded pain on their faces of death
They'd become figures on a board of chess

Welcome to the festival
The ball of no return
Inhale the smoke

Abandoned they sucked virgins - blood
Abandoned they danced demons - rock
Hysteria was ruling, mercy not lent
Ball of the damned
 
 
Jungle on the Run
(Dedicated to Julius father, RIP August'96)
Entrance to second main-floor
Pulse running high
The point of no return
Today is a nice day to die

Behind this green-grey wing door his fate was sealed
The judge who showed no mercy
Next case on his own battlefield

Access for lawyers only
Don't cross the painted line
Wait 'till your name's called over
Loaded gun
Judge on the run

For all they'd done to Billy
In years passed by
His life the worst disaster
Nobody who granted a trial

Access for lawyers only
Don't cross the painted line
Wait 'till your name's called over
Loaded gun
Judge on the run
 
 
Innuendo
(by Queen)
While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
While there's a wind and the stars and the rainbow
Till the mountains crumble into the plain
Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
Tread that fine line
Oh we'll keep on tryin' yeah
Just passing our time
While we live according to race, colour or creed
While we rule by blind madness and pure greed
Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
Through the eons, and on and on
Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
We'll tread that fine line
Oh we'll keep on tryin'
Till the end of time
Till the end of time

Through the sorrow all through our splendour
Don't take offence at my innuendo

You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be
Be free with your tempo, be free be free
Surrender your ego - be free, be free to yourself

Oooh, ooh -
If there's a God or any kind of justice under the sky
If there's a point, if there's a reason to live or die
If there's an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask
Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask
Oh yes we'll keep on trying
Hey tread that fine line
Yeah we'll keep on smiling yeah
And whatever will be - will be
We'll just keep on trying
We'll just keep on trying
Till the end of time
Till the end of time
Till the end of time
