1. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF

I came down
But my head went up
I had no doubts
And hope there was not

Break it loose
Spread the news
Get it out
Make it loud
Sing it!

I got it comin' there is nothing that can stop me
I feel it comin' there's no limit to the free me
The sky is open and the angels sing it so clear
I am the winner over all these hidden fears

Be true to yourself!

I have found
I once was lost
I came round
To see what it costs

Kick it up
To the top
There's a lot
That I got
Hear it!

Don't wanna look back, got to start to see the future
Don't wanna hold back got to let it out and to ya
The bomb is ticking, I know it's gonna blow up
Right now there's nothing, no one,
nowhere that can make it stop!

Be true to yourself!




2. THE CALLING

Well better it is when you can hold on to it
When you keep the grip to push it higher

The further you get the more you use it up
You got to look for news and you better do!

Give me something that'll do the driving
I will take while driving's what we better do!

God send whispers, shining colour pictures go all
through my head
A new light shines over everything I ever knew and
everything I did!

I hear you calling my name
I hear you calling just the same

How could I know that I would get to see it
When I keep the laws of all our fathers?

The more I pray the more they take control
The more they bless my soul and I want 'em to!

Up to the stars that's where my soul is flying
And I see that nothing else matters

With everything that my heart can take
They gonna lift me up and I see the truth!

God send whispers, shining colour pictures go all
through my head
A new light shines over everything I ever knew and
everything I did!

I hear you calling my name
I hear you calling just the same

And I wanna fly so high when I die!

I hear you calling my name
I hear you calling just the same

And I wanna fly so high when I die!




3. SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE

When it gets to red
No air to breathe
Then I am thinking
What if I go now?
When I feel upside down
The pain don't leave
Then I am thinking:
What if I go now?

You may believe here's all you want to achieve.
Can somebody help him!?
You may believe I'm not brave enough to leave.
A little bit of life is more than everything you're begging for.

Hey! Is somebody out there?
Somebody tell me there's some living in this crazy world
Hey! Somebody somewhere!
Can you feel the cold and emptiness in this crazy world
Hey! Somebody help me!
Somebody take my hand and lift me up to something good
Oh, when somebody's leaving,
It's got to be me sometime, it's got to be me sometime.

When it was too much
Of pleasure blood
That she was taking (she thinks:)
What if I go now?
When it all comes down
To lies and truth
And no one gives in (she thinks:)
What if he goes now?

You may believe you're all that's possible
Somebody tell her!
You may believe you miss all the cream and more!
A little bit of light is more than everything you're wishing for!

Hey! Is somebody out there?
Somebody tell me there's some living in this crazy world
Hey! Somebody somewhere!
Can you feel the cold and emptiness in this crazy world
Hey! Somebody help me!
Somebody take my hand and lift me up to something good
Oh, when somebody's leaving,
It's got to be me sometime, it's got to be me sometime.




4. BURNED OUT

Black winds and blue waters
A universe of sounds
Emptiness and sunshine
It's all the same

She dreams about flowers
And opens up her mind
When she is near it's oh so clear
I'm waiting

I'm waiting for the day without a sign
I'm waiting to show the love I kept inside

She's burned out without love
She's thinking about to go
The memories the apologies and everything
So what're you gonna do girl?
Everyone thinks you're a fool child
You tried to love, it breaks your heart
breaks your heart

Sweet child come take my hand
I know the reason why you're sad
All the love I have I give to you

Come on smile, look at me
Show me what you really feel
All your tears will dry before the night

I'm waiting for the day without a sign
I'm waiting to show the love I kept inside

She's burned out without love
She's thinking about to go
The memories the apologies and everything
So what're you gonna do girl?
Everyone thinks you're a fool child
You tried to love, it breaks your heart
breaks your heart




5. NEW HORIZONS

Heart is burning
In my head it's turning
Can't open my eyes
Till I'm really myself
I got a fever,
A reason to move on,
A reason to speak out
The word of the words.

Can I kick it higher?
Please let me be a fire!
Is there a little time for me?
The morning light comes closer
I feel it near!
Break down the walls!
Wash away all the pain!

New horizons drawing near.
The change will come and say it clear.
Things we know they cannot last
Don't cling to the past.

Hey there! If you care!
Don't sleep through the changes!
Don't creep like a dog
Try to wake up and see.
Higher and higher
The journey will take us
We all got to grab
To the stars up above!

Can I kick it higher?
Please let me be a fire!
Is there a little time for me?
The morning light comes closer
I feel it near!
Break down the walls!
Wash away all the pain!

New horizons drawing near.
The change will come and say it clear.
Things we know they cannot last
Don't cling to the past.

Save yourself and free your heart
The keeper of life is around
Keep your head high and march!

Here I go again
It's your last chance to join in.

Can I kick it higher?
Please let me be a fire!
Is there a little time for me?
The morning light comes closer
I feel it near!
Break down the walls!
Wash away all the pain!

New horizons drawing near.
The change will come and say it clear.
Things we know they cannot last
Don't cling to the past.




6. HUNTED

Did you ever ask yourself
About the way things might have been?
Did you ever blame yourself
About the mess that now you're in?
God I hate you!
But should I hate you?
Did you ever ask yourself
Why everybody's looking at you?
Did you ever ask yourself
If there's anything left to do?

I know!

You hang my head
You burn my heart
You break my neck
You're hunting me!

I'm angry - can you feel me?
I'm hungry - for the truth!
I'm hunted - like a madman
I suffer - just like you!

Have you ever been really down
And seen it all from there?
Will you hide your glory now
Or do you want to share?
Did you ever think about
The chance that you did wrong?
Did you ever think about
That no other chance may come?

I know!

You hang my head
You burn my heart
You break my neck
You're hunting me!

I'm angry - can you feel me?
I'm hungry - for the truth!
I'm hunted - like a madman
I suffer - just like you!




7. ALWAYS

There is no place for me
And no one to set me free
There is no way to go
There is no place for me
Where it's warm and where I can be
At least there is no place that I know

Sometimes it's hard to see that you're running out of luck
Right now it's my own life I don't know

With everything I did I was the one who laughed
Yes I was always tall and smiled
Yes everything I did I thought would always last
And I felt always strong inside

There is no place for me
And no one to set me free
There is no way to go
There is no place for me
Where it's warm and where I can be
At least there is no place that I know

But I'm fine, I'm alright even though there's nothing left
'Cos what it means I'm sure will show

Somewhere along the way I lost the key for it
But I was always true inside
Somewhere inside myself I'm praying for a bit
Of what was always open wide

When I look around there's only broken glass I see
And everywhere I reach it's hurting me
Looking back I find there was not much how it should be
It's slowly killing me!

I got to go, kick all dust off my shoes
Take all that's good inside and turn it 'round

'Cos with everything I did I was the one who laughed
Yes I was always tall and smiled
Yes everything I did I thought would always last
And I felt always strong inside




8. THANX A LOT

Downstairs, left floor
no one opens that door
Next to the old man
Some light now and then
I do care, look everywhere
And when I get a chance I surely will share
Some say it's not my scene
But I think someone's got to keep the house clean
A middle class working man, that's what I am
People like me, we all do what we can

All these whole worlds in those heads
We'll see where it all gets
My fingers are crossed anyway
If time isn't on our side
I don't think we'll keep our pride

I get my thrills
With all kinds of overkills
Never get enough
I don't think I ever will
Have you seen the magazine
Where man kills wife and kids 'cos of a failed dream?
I think it's hot and: thanx a lot!
For the ten great shots of car crashes that now I got
Around the corner was an accident
Was cool blood, so I went

All these whole worlds in those heads
We'll see where it all gets
My fingers are crossed anyway
If time isn't on our side
I don't think we'll keep our pride

There is not much I feel
Can't tell what's fake or real
I've got to see some blood
Oh baby: Thanx a lot!

If I had some money
That would be so cool
I'd buy a lot of guns to be nobody's fool
I'm smarter than you and the president
I will be laughing in the end

All these whole worlds in those heads
We'll see where it all gets
My fingers are crossed anyway
If time isn't on our side
I don't think we'll keep our pride




9. TIME'S PASSING BY

Well I see all those faces
Who'll never believe in this world
Oh I, I've been wasting so much time
Time to get into their minds
Oh I will never close my eyes
Will never lie
It's time to make it happen
Go inside

Time's passing by
We are getting closer to it
Come and take my hand
Leave behind the nasty world
That surrounds you and I
And finally we fly
We can make it
If you really want you can get it
Get it out of your head -

Well I've seen all those places
I've seen all the pain in this world
Oh I, I've seen them waste their lives
Day by day, living lies

Time's passing by
We are getting closer to it
Come and take my hand
Leave behind the nasty world
That surrounds you and I
And finally we fly
We can make it
If you really want you can get it
Get it out of your head -

Crime! Time!

Time's passing by
We are getting closer to it
Come and take my hand
Leave behind the nasty world
That surrounds you and I
And finally we fly
We can make it
If you really want you can get it
Get it out of your head -




10. SO SICK

I'm sick of finding there is no one you can trust
I'm sick of hearing money making's a must
I'm tired of seeing people slander behind backs
I can't stand seeing you sneaking up my arse!

I get ill when I see what people do for cash
How little love means and everyday it means less
Headline-lies to feed the hunger for hate
Can anybody tell me that it's not too late?

But I see light - It shines so bright
Can anybody say what is happening to me?
Can anybody say?

Even art is sold for the cheapest success
To express yourself means nothing I guess?!
But I'm telling you all, there's nothing else that I'll do
'Cause what keeps me goin' ain't the praise from you!

Mr. Smart is loud calling everyone to roar
Calls himself a real friend, the perfect friend I'm wishing for!
I know he just means good by trying to tell me how to play
It' just I don't give a shit 'bout anything he'll say

'Cause I see light, it shines inside
Can anybody say what is happening to me?
Can anybody say?
This business's a lie - I don't believe in it - This business's a lie

Well it's hip to be stupid - so I like to be smart
And when they say it's all over - I like to give it a start
And when it's hip to be hip - I hive a hip hip shit
And when they want me to go on - I'm pretty sure that I quit
I ain't running this race - it ain't worth a tear
I won't sweat for this - to me everything is clear
If now I didn't make a point - there is no point to make
I don't want a piece of your cake!
It's all cheap and dumb - A sick after money run
I didn't mean to wake you up - but I slept too long

I won't fight with fools and that is really victory
There are sides to choose and only one will let me be
I know I got some friends, but even if there's just a few
I won't feed the blind, no that's the last I wanna do!

What means everything to me no one gives a damn
And what's nothing in my eyes is held high up in their hands
Don't wanna please anyone, don't wanna give what's been asked
And what's the first for you, for me it's the last!




11. DO I REMEBER A LIFE?

I once was a blue eyed
I once dreamed I was free
I once dived in a life spending sea
And heard the voice of the priest

I once heard the angels
Singing the song of the cross
There was no fear, no doubts in our hearts
No soul could ever get lost

I prayed to the heavens above
I reached for the sky full of love
Awaited the luminous sign
To hear what's heard by the pure-restless mind

Now you can see me return
I look for the priest to make me learn
Will I remember the past?
Make me return to the best!

Do I remember a life?
In the dark age of time?
I hear it call in my dreams
Maybe I was not alone?
Maybe I called friends my own?
Together hearts full of love!

I know my heart says the truth
Maybe it was me and you?
I got to return to the wind
This world is never our home
Somewhere I left friends alone
Can someone show me the way?
Do I remember a life?

There once was the mystery
That now sings in my heart
The fire in my veins talks so loud about the past
About the place where the love for our hearts starts

We once moved through the cold fields
Strong and save led by the gods
The voices in the wind sang the children to sleep
Free spirits looked clear through the dark

I pray to the heavens abouve
I reach for the sky full of love
I wait for the luminous sign
To hear what's heard by the pure-restless mind

I see the twelve around the ONE
The mystery truth to carry on
A fight against the strong earth-kings
The sungod's light we had to bring

Do I remember a life?
In the dark age of time?
I hear it call in my dreams
Maybe I was not alone?
Maybe I called friends my own?
Together hearts full of love!

I know my heart says the truth
Maybe it was me and you?
I got to return to the wind
This world is never our home
Somewhere I left friends alone
Can someone show me the way?
Do I remember a life?

Oh, god! Help me to understand me
Guide me through visions I see
So far
You carry my soul back in time
The past shows the future to climb
Oh, god! Did I once be there by your side?
Will I once return to your light?
So far - Away from this world leads your love
My heart gets the wings of a dove and flies
Oh, god! Help me to sing you this song
I pray for your kingdom to come
