Maria Magdalena tracks

Lyrics

1. MARIA MAGDALENA

You take my love, you want my soul
I would be crazy to share your life,
Why can't you see what I'm
Sharpen your senses and drawn the knife
Hold me and you'll understand

[Chorus:]
I'll never be Maria Magdalena
(You're a creature of the night)
Maria Magdalena
(You're a victim of the fight, you need love)
Promise me delight
(You need love)

Why must I lie, find any price
When will you wake up and realize I can't surrender to you
Play for affection and win the price
I know these party games too




2. MELANCHOLIA

A short walk to genius
A single step to insanity
Everything`s both of them
And I’m the one between.

Enjoy the silent nothingness
The greyness fading calm
Time is running by at least for you
The world stops spinning for a while.
A bittersweet pill
The beauty of sadness
Infesting your will
You’re passing the entrance
To my world...Melancholia

I can resist from my will turning into yours
I can avoid those state of regress
Come to my reign
Forever to be bound
Just for a while for a moment of vanity

Regret the inner nothingness
And all your deeds undone
Focus on the things you hate
Day by day until it calls you home

Expect eternal lethargy, an unproductive man
Learn to push yourself further
And drown in the struggle within

Stuck in the past, hunting your shadows
No moment to last, to evermore




3. CHANGE OF TIDES

You can’t see the part of me
The secret part i hide from you
You can’t feel what burnes in me
My deep desires can’t come through
Through the maze of my mind
Is no guiding light that shines for you
You can’t see the part of me
The secret part i hide from you

I can’t stand this powerlessness
It is like hide and seek for me
Nothing more than living tissue
Wrapped over stone

Where is the light
That used to shine down on me
Where is the sight
I once relied on to be guided
And lead through the unknown
Of this landscape
Of delusion Illusion
Of this valley of doom and confusion
This map inside my head

I’m the escapist
Estranged from a world of lies
I’m encaged and enclosed
In my emptiness
I’m the escapist
Bricked in my walls
Don’t try to save me
Your screams don’t reach me anymore

How can you do this to me
I can’t face you without feeling guilty
Why don’t you move why don’t you just stand up
and tell me that everything’s alright
That you are by my side
I wan’t you to remember

Why don’t you just give it up
Cause there are many many ways
For you to get it started
So much beauty is lying waste
If you don’t find your way back
(Back) to your ordinary life
Because there’s never been a lack
Of passion in you




4. DISTANT SHORES

have you forgotten your promise that night
Follow your fate into the light

The moments before you went away
I still remember your laughter
My eyes open wide shocked
of what i wasn’t able to avoid
All the gone they wait for me
They wait on distant shores
Death`s the gate and I’m the key
With craving’s driving force

All the gone they`re calling me
They call from distant shores
I leave without remorse

Pass all these days pass all my longing
I draw the line.
To end what should have been done so long ago.
My fading memories force me to go
Where my feelings can resist

I’m on my way
On my way to you
I can’t wait to
Have you all around

I’m on my way
On my way to you
What was torn
Is now rebound




5. LAST SHUT ON YOUR EYES

Barrier of glass, filled with my tears
Empty space, just no one to hear
Walk alone, I can’t get clear
Of those few seconds

Wilted heart, shattered with pain
Spring will never lead me astray
No one’s able to fan my flame
Condemn myself

If I had just been able to say I’m sorry
Don’t go away, live by my side
Because without you life is grey
And even sun won’t light my day

But now it is too late
All those lines are delayed
You’ll never cross this street again
You’re out of sight

In my dreams I see your face
Every moment seems like whole days
I can’t clean up my disgrace
And those few seconds

If I had just been able, to say turn round
Don’t go, please stay, stay with me my dear

If I had just been able to say I’m sorry
Don’t go away, live by my side
Because without you life is grey
And even sun won’t light my day

But now it is too late
All those lines are delayed
You’ll never cross this street again
You’re out of sight
I will ever be the one to blame
Last shut of your eyes.

Ferries guide you
Guide you all along
Ferries guide you away on silver waves

Crying heaven turns in seas of tears
Ferries guide you
Guide you out of sight




6. BEYOND HORIZON - THE POEM PT. II

World is cold beyond horizon,
nothing told between us now and then.
Where am I now? Your voice so far away
Can I say how? No colours, just grey.
All around me the fog blears my eyes,
And my heart too...a neverending night.

Oh I`m screaming your name again and again,
Am I dreaming? The same again and again?

Where is my hope? Abandoned like my life...
Remember a dark rope and a sharp-edged knife?

Oh I´m screaming your name again and again,
Am I dreaming? The same again and again?
