Mondeslicht in der Finsternis Neongrelles Treiben in Ausflugsstimmung Das Herz sticht und besudelt blindlings Die Sinne des Waisen Weisen Leise schummrig die Serenade erschaudert Die Herzensdame darauf bedauert Der Jüngling wird bei ihr nicht älter Liebe und Kabale, Hiebe und Skandale Hiebe und Skandale Er sich von dannen trollt Welt der Diebe Welt der Triebe Femme Fatale Sex un peu Sex un peu Total trivial Man ihn darauf so scholt Tra-tra-tragisch Idio-idio-matisch Femme fatale Sex un peu Sex un peu Total trivial Polarstern erhellt die Szenerie Gespenster werfen ihre Silhouetten Begraben unter schwerer Wolkendecke Begierig den Mund nach ihr lecke Sie nahmen ihm den letzten Heller Es bleibt der fade öde Teller Verraten, betrogen und auch beraubt Hei! Da ist die nächste Braut Er sich von dannen trollt Welt der Diebe Welt der Triebe Femme Fatale Sex un peu Sex un peu Total trivial Man ihn darauf so scholt Tra-tra-tragisch Idio-idio-matisch Femme fatale Sex un peu Sex un peu Total trivial Er sich von dannen trollt Welt der Diebe Welt der Triebe Femme Fatale Sex un peu Sex un peu Total trivial Man ihn darauf so scholt Tra-tra-tragisch Idio-idio-matisch Femme fatale Sex un peu Sex un peu Total trivial

Bright light star So very far and calling To me from across the void Bright light star So very far and calling To me from across the void The immeasurable distance between souls One perceived - is as close As the star within In a dream I once saw her Delicate frame floating Without strain Closer - I saw her Closer - Than ever before And I reached out Here she is She'll always be with me Yet even still she is approaching - so I hold Here she is Here she is She'll always be with me Yet even still she is approaching - so I hold Here she is And I also await the immanent arrival The immanent arrival In a dream I once saw her Delicate frame floating Without strain Closer - I saw her Closer - Than ever before And I reached out to receive Here she is She'll always be with me Yet even still she is approaching - so I hold Here she is Here she is She'll always be with me Yet even still she is approaching - so I hold Here she is And I also await the immanent arrival The immanent arrival

For Annie 04:43
Thank heaven the crisis The danger is past And the lingering illness Is over at last And the fever called living Is conquered at last Sadly I know I am shorn of my strength And no muscle I move As I lie at full length But not matter I feel I am better at length And I rest so composedly Now in my bed That any beholder Might fancy me dead The moaning and groaning The sighing and sobbing Are quieted now With that horrible throbbing That burned in my brain All that horrible throbbing The sickness, the nausea The pitiless pain Thank heaven the crisis The danger is past Thank heaven the crisis Is over at last Thank heaven the crisis The danger is past And the lingering illness Is over at last And the fever called living Is conquered at last Sadly I know And I'm shorn of my strength No muscle I move As I lie at full length But not matter I feel I am better at length And I rest so composedly Now in my bed That any beholder Might fancy me dead The moaning and groaning The sighing and sobbing Are quieted now With that horrible throbbing That burned in my brain All that horrible throbbing The sickness, the nausea The pitiless pain Thank heaven the crisis The danger is past Thank heaven the crisis Is over at last

Jammed 04:10
One day moving out the crooked flat One day walking into dark light But now I feel like I feel like Jammed A curse, you say Your words, your fiction You don't understand I gonna cut loose Cause I feel like Jammed Jammed Other days Feel the same Hearing flowers Falling down Falling down on my head Down on my head Jammed We all carry on with thinking of control Jammed My blood just curdled Jammed No wisdom cause we are blind Jammed We all carry on with thinking of control Jammed No wisdom cause we are Blind Days Feel the same You treat me with contempt And you don't understand And I feel like I feel like We all carry on with thinking of control My blood just curdled No wisdom cause we are blind Days Feel the same You treat me with contempt And you don't understand And I feel like I feel like We all carry on with thinking of control My blood just curdled My blood just curdled Jammed No wisdom cause we are blind Jammed We all carry on with Jammed We all carry on with Jammed We all carry on with thinking of control

I was circling in the atmosphere When startling news reached my ear I heard a voice on interface I simply said: Set out into space We gonna dance We will fly high We will illuminate the sky We gonna reach the distant stars Let's make a party on Mars Let's make a party on Mars Spaceships starting off The course was set The ground was shaking Sky was red I watched this swarm of fireflies Looked through a window in the skies From Earth to Moon in half on hour Supported by space engine power Guided by lots of satellites We made our way through darkest nights And then at least we saw a light The Marsian spaceport came in sight Embedded in a crater vent A spiderweb of steel cement I took a shortcut to that place To be the first one in the chase The others watched it with a moan But I had already touched Down on mars My body is electrified Down on mars Protonic fields will sent me right Away from Mars To heaven to the shiny stars That's how we did the party on Mars We make a party on Mars I got out and took a gliding cab Direction capital city to a secret fun lab I asked the driver for one of those cigarettes He said: Wait a minute, please, the cops are ahead We make a party on Mars A dangerous opiate's The feeling when you need a change That's all But he gave me one And I took a deep breath By that time it didn't smell like a cigarette I left my calling card on a crystal slab It said: Hey old chap. We're glad to have you back. We're glad to have you back. Drowned in space You feel no limit's set Control is lost You gonna fall You rise Drowned in space You feel no limit's set Control is lost You gonna fall You rise Drowned in space You feel no limit's set Control is lost You gonna fall You rise Drowned in space You feel no limit's set Control is lost You gonna fall You rise Drowned in space You feel no limit's set Control is lost You gonna fall You rise Drowned in space You feel no limit's set Control is lost You gonna fall You rise

Happiest Day 05:34
Dim vales And shadowy floods Shapeless creatures Sucking blood And I would If I could Change Nothing to gain It's ever the same My life is so in vain No use Living in a train Your eyes are blind of faith Every sound's driving me insane My life is all in vain And I should better risk a step into that waking world If I could fall from the top of my dreams quite unhurt But I don't stand still I don't stay Black wings do carry me far away Dim vales And shadowy floods Shapeless creatures Sucking blood Emerging from the underground I can't escape To them I'm bound No use I can't break the chains I can't move this It all stays the same What is left is to be insane My life is so in vain And I should better risk a step into that waking world If I could fall from the top of my dreams quite unhurt But I don't stand still I don't stay Black wings do carry me far away But no use I can't break the chains I can't move this It always stays the same What is left is to be - to be insane My life is so in vain So in vain Stop it
