Till the Ferryman Dies
A garden divine
With birds singing everywhere
The beast had lain in wait
To snatch you away

This creature is mine for eternity
I won't give it back, turn around
I'll take your life for disrespect
Don't dare if you want to survive

Surrender, it's just been my second thought
I will fight until the end to reach you again
No surrender, a word without any sense, now
Cause I won't leave you alone
Out in the dark on your own
So 1 decided to win the light 'gainst the elements
Till the ferryman dies

A beautyful place
With red roses here and there
They had turned to black
When we walked to the trap

You've entered the reign of darkness, dear
Masked well as your big paradise
That's where you're led by your dirty greed
This victim now's paying the price

Surrender, it's just been my second thought
I will fight until the end to reach you again
No surrender, a word without any sense, now
Cause I won't leave you alone
Out in the dark on your own
So I decided to win the fight 'gainst the elements
Till the ferryman dies

Try what you want hut you won't succeed
I'm a thousand times stronger than you
The ferryman is gonna bring you back
Be clever, your chance is too low

Surrender, it's just been my second thought
I will fight until the end to reach you again
No surrender, a word without any sense, now
Cause I won't leave you alone
Out in the dark on your own
So I decided to win the fight 'gainst the elements
Till the ferryman dies
 
 
Hallowed Be My Name
Seems everything in vain
It's one more time the same
You stand alone again down and lonely

Best friends have said good-bye
Without good reasons why
They stayed as long as they got their thrill

Forgotten and forgiven
That's how it often ends
At least we stand together
Good fellows hand in hand
Forgotten and forgiven
No hurts and no more pain
New friendship starting stainless
Like sunshine after rain
Like sunshine after rain
So hallowed be my name

A few days later on
Good feelings are all gone
When silence arises again
Forgotten and forgiven
That's how it often ends
At least we stand together
Good fellows hand in hand
Forgotten and forgiven
No hurts and no more pain
New friendship starting stainless
Like sunshine after rain
Like sunshine after rain
So hallowed be my name

Susan, Gary, Jill and Larry, some uncommon friends
Cause they are gonna leave you while you'd need them most

D.D., Steven, Lee the demon, fuckers all the way
Next time I'll think twice before you're gonna waste my time

I am what I am
Just acting like I can
Mistaken, forsaken again

Forgotten and forgiven
That's how it often ends
At least we stand together
Good fellows hand in hand
Forgotten and forgiven
No hurts and no more pain
New friendship starting stainless
Like sunshine after rain
Like sunshine after rain
So hallowed be my name
 
 
Flight of the Eagle
Blimey, I'm sitting wondering
Why I'm sweating like I do
I did not move myself for hours
So I got no explanation

The air that I breath's getting hotter
And I can't stand it here no more

I don't wanna grumble but we've got December
White Christmas was usual this season

Come, fly like an eagle as high as the sky
Take a look of our world from above
And tell what you see, is it bad, is it wise
What we all do nowadays

No one cares, if they lie to you
Good reason why you should worry
They say: Climate had sometimes been changing
And our world Ws quite alright

But I never believed in the words they were telling
Cause bullshit can't taste like sweet candy

Come, fly like an eagle as high as the sky
Take a look of our world from above
And tell what you see, is it bad, is it wise
What we all do nowadays

Let's fly like an eagle as high as the sky
Take a look of our world from above
And tell what you see, is it bad, is it wise
What we all do nowadays
 
 
Turn of the Tide
Now at the point of entry
We're blowing the dust away
We all have crossed the border
On our common way

And I'm relieved I reached the ferry
To the virginal shore
But what I see and what I got
Did not change towards before

Just some of my memories obscure from afar
The smell of the centuries ascends to the stars
And we left some more traces behind
Put a thousand-years-bundle aside

Turn of the tide
You, child of the ages
(Child of time, gift devine)
Turn of the tide
You're the mirror of changes
(Step by step, no regret)
Wisdom drifts on you

Our world 's a stormy island
Where stranded hopes cannot leave
Man's past is extensively violent
We're acting like what we believe (in)

And I'm relieved I reached the ferry
To the virginal shore
But what I see and what I got
Did not change towards before

Just some of my memories obscure from afar
The smell of the centuries ascends to the stars
And we left some more traces behind
Put a thousand- years-bundle aside

Turn of the tide
You, child of the ages
( Child of time, gift devine)
Turn of the tide
You're the mirror of changes
(Step by step, no regret)
Wisdom drifts on you

And I'm relieved I reached the ferry
To the virginal shore
But what I see and what I got
Did not change towards before

Just some of my memories obscure from afar
The smell of the centuries ascends to the stars
And we left some more traces behind
Put a thousand- years-bundle aside

Turn of the tide
You, child of the ages
( Child of rime, gift devine)
Turn of the tide
You're the mirror of changes
(Step by step, no regret)
Wisdom drifts on you
 
 
Always Alien
Blue heaven, the sky's wide open
The ocean lies still
I try to convince emotions
To follow my will

Then leaving my sorrows ten light-years behind
To free the prisoner out of my mind

Out tar, but still much too close
To my hard driven brain
This town pretends innocence
While it's watched from this way

Always alien
Mother earth is not my mum
Somehow miserable
I wish better days to come

Far from a distance calling
The forgotten one
It seems I'm an angel fallen
Down from where they come

Lost since my wings are broken
I am overdone
It seems that it was unspoken
Thai I'm here for fun

Always alien
Mother earth is not my mom
Somehow miserable
I wish better days to come

Far from a distance calling
The forgotten one
It seems I'm an angel fallen
Down from where they come

Lost since my wings are broken
I am overdone
It seems that it was unspoken
That I'm here for fun
 
 
Engel Brechts
((Uber die Verfuhrung von Engeln)
(Bertolt Brecht))
Engel verfuhrt man gar nicht oder schnell
Verzieh Ihn einfach in den Hauseingang
Steck ihm die Zunge in den Mund
Und lang ihm untern Rock
Bis er sich nass macht

Stell ihm das Gesicht zur Wand
Heb ihm den Rock und fick ihn
Stohnt er irgendwie beklommen
Dann halt ihn fest und lass ihn zweimal kommen

Sonst hat er dir am Ende einen Schock
Ermahn ihn, dass er gut den Hintern schwenkt
Heiss ihm dir ruhig an die Hoden fassen
Sag ihn er darf sich furchtlos fallenlassen
Dieweil er zwischen Erd und Himmel hangt

Nur schau ihm nicht beim Ficken ins Gesicht
Und seine Flugel, Mensch
Zerdruck sie nicht
 
 
Sister Mary
When she asks the mirror
Hey you, is it me
There's always just silence
From her soul's deepest sea

She's lost in a world so strange around
Quiet senseless, no explanations found

So she started working on some things
A good help for everyone
She felt like an angel of fortune
Having done mercy

Sister Mary
Ordinary
Wipes out every stain of creation
Sister Mary
Poisoned Gary
Judged twice, Gary died under her immaculate eyes

She knows to tell what's right what's wrong
But doesn't know her hands belong
To her body and her mind

She whispers God would lead her hands
He's gonna tell her till it ends
Who's the next who should be dying

So she started working on some things
A good help for everyone
She felt like an angel of fortune
Having done mercy

Sister Mary
Ordinary
Wipes out every stain of creation
Sister Mary

Poisoned Gary
Judged twice, Gary died under her immaculate eyes
 
 
The Gambler
Now it's over I still can't believe
It sounds like a bad fee-faw-fum
Day by day all his geese were swans
Till his sticky end has come
The game was his love, his soul and joy
It acted in an underhand way
He didn't fight like Killkenny cats
He just run to make his play

Rien ne vas plus
Rouge ou noir
Faites les jeux madames et monsieur
La tete ou la nombre
Jour les cartes
Le dernier coup

Stop it you fool
Don't be blind
Stand up and go away
Stop it you fool
Open your mind
Don't be a loser

He bet on horses, on soccer, on dogs
He gained all his money away
The ball was dropped into the wheel
And so it went round day by day
The game sucked his life
He drew a blank
His look was quite good every day
The devil now things sweet lullabies
And he takes the damned gambler away

Rien ne vas plus
Rouge ou noir
Faites les jeux madames et monsieur
La tete ou la nombre
Jour les cartes
Le dernier coup

Stop it you fool
Don't be blind
Stand up and go away
Stop it you fool
Open your mind
Don't be a loser

He abandoned to despair
He backed down, that's what he could
Was a gambler day by day
Breaking down, that's just the end
He abandoned to despair
He backed down, that's what he could
Was a gambler day by day
Breaking down, breaking down
 
 
R.I.P. - Rest in Pain
Once I used to call you friend
Thought I could change our fate
How serious this story ended
I noticed much too late

Sinner and saint, a stone on my way
Wrapped in a clothing of changes
Rival or friend, just faked 'till the end
Choking on lies. never knew what's meant

Look at me. I'm free
And the reason's: You are history
Blimey, so free
Look how joy 's takin' part of me

Different places, different times
When I needed help or advice
None of your statements was good enough
To justify their price

Sinner and saint, a stone on my way
Wrapped in a clothing of changes
Rival or friend, just faked 'till the end
Choking on lies, never knew what's meant

You were the master and I was the fool
I don't think, now that was pretty cool
Tables turned, they dig your grave
Have a look how a bad girl behaves

Sinner and saint, a stone on my way
Wrapped in a clothing of changes
Rival or friend, just faked 'till the end
Choking on lies, never knew what's meant

Look at me, I'm free
And the reason 's: You are history
Blimey, so free
Look how joy 's takin' part of me
