Unconcern 04:24
Unconcern I hate to spend this time alone, I seek for you and I get used to feel my heart just like a clown… A phone call is my only hope, a knocking at my door, a pleasure, I drink this dream until I drop… And I go wild and you look happy, and I sunk into my biggest sorrow… It’s not your phone line that bothers It’s not my doorbell that troubles It hurts a lot that distant lovers we turned to be… Our love’s a child that needs us both and I can see it only dying What brings us near is now a cloth… I close the door, I light a fire, the hours that separates us grows it, this house is burning to the ground… And I go wild and you look happy, and I sunk into my biggest sorrow … It’s not your phone line that bothers It’s not my doorbell that troubles It hurts a lot that distant lovers we turned to be… It’s not your phone line that bothers It’s not my doorbell that troubles It’s just your unconcern for others that’s killing me…

Secret Lover 04:51
Secret Lover Why do you have to leave so soon? Got used to have you lurking in my dreams Tomorrow you’ll be the emotion most felt Until the morning lets you go again My dreams would never lie that you’re the one Even if the day would be ashamed to tell That my inspiration springs from you And that obsession could make me feel so good If I tried to touch you, Would you fade away, my secret lover Would you ever be mine? Or will you just keep breaking in? We are playing hide and seek Either in dreams or in reality In lustful melodies will I ever find you? Or I’ll keep hoping I’ll just find me? If I tried to touch you, Would you fade away, my secret lover Would you ever be mine? Or will you just keep breaking in? Will you stay in the words I’ll never dare to say Or will my kissing make all the words just go away Will you ever be mine, my secret lover Or will you just keep breaking in?

Fame and Gold I’ll take the risk, made up my mind There’s a chance I’ll find some peace Who’s there to judge what I’ll become “Life” would never speak through any mouthpiece There is no tick tack or tock tock that could sync my deeds with time if it were, I’d crush it down choosing to live out of the ordinary Maybe… I’ll find my way Walking across on a circus tight rope Maybe… I’ll stumble and fall Wasting nothing more than vague hopes May it be… It would still worth more than fame and gold Don’t teach me to be somebody else Don’t wanna share your hypocrisy I can’t withdraw my heart from life Instead, I’ll keep on dancing in uncertainty There’s nothing to be afraid of, nothing more than regret Still, I’d rather be proud of… Than addicted to a safe net Maybe… I’ll find my way Walking across on a circus tight rope Maybe… I’ll stumble and fall Wasting nothing more than vague hopes May it be… It would still worth more than fame and gold

Reaching the Stars As I lie right next to you, I blame the night That keeps you from being mine, In time… But as the words you don’t dare to say excite my skin, Getting deeper than you’ve ever been, I give in… Reaching the stars, I wanna cry and laugh out loud, But it’s your lips that seal my mouth Your touch may offend every part of me, cause you know how To leave me senseless on the ground I feel our breaths can trick the time from passing by and lock this moment in my mind for a lifetime Your whisper lingers in the vamp and lures my mind, As we’re dancing in the dark, Once again… Reaching the stars, I wanna cry and laugh out loud, But it’s your lips that seal my mouth Your touch may offend every part of me, cause you know how To leave me senseless on the ground Hold me tight and I’ll abide by your scent that rules the night Hold me tight, I won’t deny All my dreams and lustful sins Please be mine… In time… Be mine… In time…

What is it about me that you love? So many times I stood at the door Swearing it was the last time I didn’t pass the threshold Communication is falling apart I know I may be choosing again to disregard What is it about me that you love, When words are washed up by your wish to change it all? Is that love that floats in your eyes when you watch my ego sink and my bursting into cries? What is it about me that you love? So many times you were out of control Perhaps I should have never let my nature unfold For you, I’d always be the one to blame For daring to claim a place in a dream’s losing game What is it about me that you love, When you are standing somewhere between a friend and a foe? Is that love inscribed in your eyes, When you open fire and make me conjure the skies? What is it about me that you love? Too many times I stood at the door This is the last of all the last times that I won’t go.

Inside your mind I’m an insidious thought That gets in your head and ruins it all There is no doubt That I can numb your mind and rule your soul Living inside your head just helps me grow Soon you’ll know That as I devour the sober part of your mind You’ll be mine Come on, let your darkness take control Come on, let your darkness take control To colour your perception And turn your obsession into madness I feed on dismay And when I feign, I drive you insane I’m a kind of disease And when I’m gone, there will be a thousand more Living inside your head just helps me grow Soon you’ll know That as I devour the sober part of your mind You’ll be mine Come on, let your darkness take control To colour your perception And turn your obsession into madness (Where did she go? Who did she meet? What did she say? She lies, lies, lies…)

Somebody New 05:00
Somebody New A Thousand broken steps that lead to your door, breath in the nerve to let go. Let go of all the things we have been through. I could dress up and turn into somebody new I could dress up and be there only for you Our summers await us, they can’t dispose of fall. A Thousand leaden tears that whisper your name will be buried in silence as they drain You will never know how I’ve suffered I will dress up and turn into somebody new I will dress up and be there only for you Our summers await us but rain doesn’t seem to abate A Thousand wounded days that gasp for your love find their place next to forlorn hope They will always have the taste of your blood They won’t dress up if I turn into somebody new They won’t dress up, still, I’ll be there only for you Our summers await us, we’ll find our way through loss…

Cream 05:41
CREAM Deep in my desires we coexist In a shameless song I cannot resist In sound, I taste your manic air That excites my thought more than I can bare In silence, I sense the groaning hell That my twisted mind has set aflame Away from me my inhibitions rest In my illusive room I’ll wait undressed Slip and slide in my deadly cream Under the bending lights of neon dream Red passion, violet pleasure and blue pain My noisy instincts can’t be tamed My hunger will be satisfied bit by bit As you inspire the very beast of me Tonight, you’ll be my only prey In my moist kisses you will gently decay…

Silk 02:58
SILK Dark, so I can´t see you Warm, So I can feel you Closer Your voice Like a gentle caress covers Like a silk my wounded life. Dark, so you can´t see me Warm, so you can feel me Inside My moan Like a deep dive tears the silken waves in your wounded mind.

DEAD IN BERLIN Watch me dousing and falling, Chasing dreams and crawling on your desert streets Choices taunt me and block my way They lie and lurk to watch me pay and get abased Rain can’t free my filthy mind Rain just bears a sea of flames inside of me Shout or whisper I should leave Numb and soulless, I’m dead in Berlin

Under Skin 05:26
UNDER SKIN In his laughter I throw my heart again There I blow myself apart again I am reaching in his throat for my life I put scars along my way with my knife Oh, in this rusty place, out of space I heard that windy chime, out of time Hexed me and locked me in your spin Like a will, deadly sin, love for kill, under skin Every breath drifts me along to his chest Where his pain and I go up against I could reach up close enough to his soul We are forced out with a blow, he felt whole Oh, in this rusty place, out of space I heard that windy chime, out of time Hexed me and locked me in your spin Like a will, deadly sin, love for kill, under skin

Perfect Sync 03:04
PERFECT SYNC Up and down In and out Shoes or Crown Dark and light Pull me up Crash me down Push me in Drag me out Give me shoes Give me a crown Freezing dark Burning light Work of art Be so kind let my heart and fuck my mind
