1. Laute Propheten (back to top)

Those drums are pumpin’ my blood
right at the center of my heart
guitars and bass get on top
and it’s the licks that start the shot

It’s all runnin’ through my veins
and I can feel it kickin’ in
let go and get carried away
by this power from within – yeah

Call us dictators, creators, fornicators – we don’t care
You can shout at or be proud of us – we are loud and still alive
Sex-invaders, perpetrators, propagators – we don’t care
You can shout at or be proud of us – we are loud and loud and loud

It’s all waves that flood your body
before they take over your mind
let go and just dive in head first
- you will be all right – yeah

Call us dictators…

Say you want it – say you need it
say you feel just the same
Say you want it – say you need it
and we set you aflame

Let the waters hit you hard
and let them wash all over you
floatin’ on this sea of licks and beats
is exactly what you need

Call us dictators…


2. Back on Track (back to top)

I can’t live up to anybody’s expectations
but my own
I’m so fed up with givin’ in and givin’ myself up – no, I won’t

Fuck off, this world is too much
and I’m sick of pleasin’ you prick
fuck off, this world is too much
and I’m sick of provin’ you shit

I just got my life back
I am back on track
and still those stains
need some more light
to fade and I will not
throw it all just away
for some pleasure and pain
for some fucking cage
I can’t go back to again
no no no…

It’s this one life I got
and I’m not gonna waste
on something or someone
no compromise ‘n no haste
and I do know for sure
that there’s gotta be more
than this bullshit ‘n crap
I’ve been through before
no no no…

No, no, no, no, no, no,
I can’t trust in you,
no, no…


3. Useless (back to top)

Feelings forlorn, heartbeats long gone, just sweet memories
A moment of bliss, a scent that you miss, ‘n managed to freeze
Stored in your mind, it keeps you alive, still you’re starvin’
for another of these marvellous scenes – you need that flashback

I’ve never been higher, higher, higher
wanna grab it make it last,
I’ve never felt lighter, lighter, lighter
why does it have to pass?

Life’s a tape you cannot rewind,
your favorite scenes only survive in your mind
Life’s a tape you cannot rewind

Sweet tender words, gently uttered, that smile in your eyes
Safe and secure, life felt so pure – I cannot forget

I’ve never been higher…

Grab it – make it last – just cant let go…
Useless!


4. Ode to the Alleycat (back to top)

Treadin’ lightly
movin’ smoothly
why would she stay
when the world is hers?

A survivor
rebel fighter
fallig on her feet
no matter the height

Yeah – she can’t fight it

Six senses boy
and seven lives
bein’ a cat
means to survive
It takes for her
just one paw swipe
to hurt you real bad
you bleed and you’re blind

Lovin a cat
means to let go
wait till she’s back
to sit on your lap
if you lock her in
catzilla she gets
you cannot pat
an angry cat

Yeah – she can’t fight it

She cannot stay…


5. Faust (back to top)

Verweile noch, Du bist so schön
kannst den Gedanken nicht versteh’n
Verweile noch, Du bist so schön
wird in Gedanken immer steh’n

Übernatürliches verloren
den falschen Takt, den falschen Tag gewählt
den Witz zum Höhepunkt getrieben
wenn etwas zählt, Du bist es wirklich wert
einzige Antwort nicht gefunden
was wäre wenn, auch wenn mich das so quält
Du hast mich an den Punkt getrieben
an dem man lernt, wo ein jeder umkehrt

Habe ich denn wirklich so versagt
dass Du nichts mehr in mir siehst?
Habe ich denn wirklich so versagt?

Habe ich denn wirklich so versagt
dass Du nichts mehr in mir siehst?
Habe ich denn wirklich so versagt?

Habe ich denn wirklich so versagt
dass Du nichts mehr in mir siehst?
Habe ich denn wirklich so versagt?

Verweile noch, Du bist so schön

warum hier? warum mir?
mein Stolz und Deine Zärtlichkeit
und wieder – kein Sieger
gerechter Preis doch Einsamkeit

und wenn kein Wunder Dich aufhält – bleibt Dein Lächeln ungewiss
so zurückwerfend endlos schön – es ist so schön!
hab Dir gesagt dass ich Angst hab, den Menschen in Dir zu verlier’n
und wenn’s die letzte Lösung ist, dann will ich gern zugrunde gehn

ich hat geschwor’n Dich nicht zu seh’n
Du wolltest niemals von hier geh’n – und gehst doch so weit weg
Du hast gesagt “verweile noch” – so schön
ohne den Gedanken zu versteh’n – doch ich verstehe gut

Verweile noch, Du bist so schön
Verweile noch, Du wolltest nie geh’n
Verweile noch, Du bist so schön
Verweile noch, Du wolltest nie geh’n


6. Infectious (back to top)

Whatcha gonna do
when the day has come
that your light is gone
Whatcha gonna do,
when the day has come
that your light is gone
- so are you

Useless in society
you don’t work or know
how life really is and how
it is to take a blow

If I wanna go up there
I have to work you say
I have to toil all my life
I mustn’t live but pray

Whatcha gonna do…

Useless in society
you don’t work or know
how life really is and how
it is to take a blow

Black bird you mock my life
you laugh at all I have
what I care for is not just right
behind that cloud above

Even if it’s easier
to believe your beak
than to think for myself
I am not that weak – No!


7. Never Say Die (back to top)

Life has always been unfair to you
you don’t know what to do – oh yeah
but never say die

Whining just won’t get you anywhere
how ’bout you better start to act
and never say die

Never say die
Get up and try
This is your life
Now come on

By yourself and on your knees
I bet you’ve had enough of this – oh yeah
but never say die

Pick yourself up, clear your throat
then shout and growl and let them know – oh yeah
that you never say die

Never say die…


8. Outta Here (back to top)

Get me outta here
I can’t stand the pain
Get me outta here
I wanna run – run away

We started sippin’ drinks in some nice bar
on a certain Monday night
turned out we were in a boring small town
no club with any music in sight

Get me outta here…

The girls said “come on we wanna party and dance,
there is just one club in this town.
The music is shit but just drink a few pints.”
and that was when the night went down.

Get me outta here…

Cannot rock, cannot roll, it’s not my heart and not my soul….

Now get me outta here!
Oh no never again
will I go in there,
oh never, never again!
Not back in there,
not back in there,
oh never again.
No fuckin’ way!


9. Whore (back to top)

Please let go
I’m luring in the tree up there
curled up, waiting for a prey
For apples I don’t really care
it is good hearts that I prefer

You think I don’t have ears to hear
you crying and you sharing tears
well I have a heart, just like yours
but mine just beats to different chords

I’m the piece of shit who sins,
the bitch who eats your heart and wins
the snake in your paradise
feeding you pain and lies

Please let go
I know the wounds are fresh and deep
I don’t expect those scars to heal
best that you can do is go
despise me with your heart and soul

I’m the piece of shit who sins…


10. Demolution (back to top)

Chaos is order
we don’t understand,
cradle of life
beginning and end

The senses we’re given
can’t grasp the sum
as evolution
crushes the scum

Well of confusion
above and below
conscience and action
determine the show

Lost in the desert
from dust we are born
flawy by nature
ab ovo forlorn

Ah ah ah…
Mirror of vanity, pride and insanity,
shimmering bright, catching the light

Storm’s breaking loose
the always abused
soul of the earth is risin’ up
‘gainst cruelty, the
torture and greed,
the rotten seed
that we are

This promised land
is soaked in blood so deep
what nourishs us
is destroyed by our greed

Great Gaia hums
a tune to ease her pain
the wind that blows
carries her words in vain

Still we refuse
to listen to the grief,
the wailing words,
guilt we refuse to see

Here I am mother nature
I’m your child – wayward and wild


11. Faust 2 (back to top)

you know… if I didn’t care at all…
would I have written this song?
so here’s this pointless way of telling you
I do care.
or did I?
the human soul is not made to
be stamped on every fucking day

everytime I see something violet
it kills me right away
like a trojan horse in your soul it hurts
in the most violent way

I was the first of us to take any step
to try to call you, solve a problem what the fuck!
truth is I was the only one
you’re so passive so pathetic yet so fair*
do you ever think about this time
or is it only me again?

*(i.e. oh linger on, thou art so fair!)

everytime I see something violet
it kills me right away
like a trojan horse in your soul it hurts
in the most violent way

look at all I’ve done
look at all I’ve created so far

throughout these years
I’d been living for you
been searching for you

with you in mind
look at all I’ve done
for you you cannot see

as my friends tell me
you’re a fool, unworthy and out of the picture.
Just why not out of my mind?
