Lyrics

1. HOMELESS

Trying to forget all the words that wander 'round in my mind
Seeing no more goodness at all, it's only hatred I find
I don't want to be the bereaved of a forgotten world
And I don't want to lay me down to fall in endless sleep

I'm drying all my tears; I try to wipe away my sorrows and grief
Right now I'm walking to the land where I find the words that I can receive,
To a place where I can give and understand and forgive and forget
But I'm walking to nowhere, 'cos a place like that doesn't exist

Tell me why do I pray to the lord?
There is no beauty and passion in this world;
Why do I love you, why do I believe,
Why can't I go or slowly disappear?

Now I reached the point where I say I don't care anymore,
I'm sure I'll never find all the things I was looking for,
To hell with your promises, it's a lie
I am waiting for the end I'll get wings and then I'll fly...




2. PARADISE

I wander around without destination
I don't feel the cold anymore
Everything I start, ends in desperation
For how long I tried to reach the shore.

But now I fall, deep into the ocean
Go on, your way never ends
I won't light the stars, I shroud you in my darkness
Welcome to my own paradize.

The trees reveal the secrets they were hiding
The leaves don't dance anymore
Don't shed a tear, you were never lying
But much too late I understood.

So here I am, I will always wait here
I hear your footsteps fade away
I wave to you, but you can't see me
Maybe I'll see you never more...




3. DEAD CAN WAIT (LIVE)

Mourn for existing, waiting for deliverance
The sky crashes down
The dead wait for a long time
The borders of your life were early programmed
You're just a piece, you have to run forever

You're dying but living
The dead can wait

Some night it could happen;
A dream will be reality
You stand there alone,
You don't want to wakeup
You didn't get - to die
You don't know how it is,
You never made it before

You're dying, but living,
The dead can wait
Dead can wait,
Our fantasy devoured ourselves...




4. DIRGE (LIVE)

As I heard you've lost your game
I knew that today we'll make it real
I went everywhere to find you
And I can't forget how you called my name

And when the sun went down
I knew that there's no way to help you
When I begin to close my mind

As I reached the place where we met first
I thought you're standing there
As I tried to take your hand
The vision suddenly disappeared

And when the sun went down again
I felt you close behind me
And I began to close my mind

And here I've found you, innocent and sweet
You lie there in the street
Your eyes don't tell the lies anymore
The're full of bitter tears
Your hands cramped as they tried to
Pull you back to your unhappy life
Your mouth is opened wide
To speak the last words but there was no time...

Now we stand here side by side
And we're waiting for the next black night
You give me a smile and you say:
"Now we start our second life!"

And when the sunset comes
We kiss that bloody life good-bye
And we take off and fly away...
And here we've found us, innocent and sweet
We lie there in the street
Our eyes don't tell the lies anymore,
They're full of bitter tears
Our hands cramped as tried to
Pull us back to our unhappy lives
Our mouths are opened wide
To speak the last words but there was no time...




5. A SEA OF TEARS (PIANO VERSION)

I was walking through the streets
I saw, I saw so many lights
I saw so many people
Without a look in their faces

Come on to the sea
To the sea of tears

I went to where nothing else moved
I went to the sea of sadness
I went to where nothing else moved
I went to a sea of tears

There was a girl in a white dress
Her face did look so unhappy
Was she the queen of the night?
She had no voice to cry...




6. TRUE FAITH (NEW ORDER COVER)

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
I don't care 'cause I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much
I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun...

When I was a very small boy,
Very small boys talked to me
Now that we've grown up together
They're afraid of what they see
That's the price that we all pay
And the value of destiny comes to nothing
I can't tell you where we're going
I guess there was just no way of knowing
I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun...

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
The chances are we've gone too far
You took my time and you took my money
Now I fear you've left me standing
In a world that's so demanding
I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun...




7. HOMELESS (CYBER EDIT)

Trying to forget all the words that wander 'round in my mind
Seeing no more goodness at all, it's only hatred I find
I don't want to be the bereaved of a forgotten world
And I don't want to lay me down to fall in endless sleep

I'm drying all my tears; I try to wipe away my sorrows and grief
Right now I'm walking to the land where I find the words that I can receive,
To a place where I can give and understand and forgive and forget
But I'm walking to nowhere, 'cos a place like that doesn't exist

Tell me why do I pray to the lord?
There is no beauty and passion in this world;
Why do I love you, why do I believe,
Why can't I go or slowly disappear?

Now I reached the point where I say I don't care anymore,
I'm sure I'll never find all the things I was looking for,
To hell with your promises, it's a lie
I am waiting for the end I'll get wings and then I'll fly...
