01. The Scarred People

Emily took to flight
On see-through wings of white
Over the seven seas careened
In beauty yet unseen
A withered rose in bloom
A blooming rose of doom
Scattered all around
For the heavens to abound
And like the sweetest cream
With loveliness extreme
Emily went to play
On that sacred day

One love in red who loves darkness
And one love in white who loves darkness
One love in black who loves darkness
One love supreme who loves dark

One little butterfly who loves darkness
One tear to cry who loves darkness
One billion angels love darkness
'Cause even God loves darkness

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)

Emily went to play
When gold turned into clay
The morning drain the night
Of all beauty left in sight
And soaked in reality
Of not much more to see
She disappeared into the haze
In her own peculiar ways
And like the sweetest cream
With loveliness extreme
Emily went to play
On that sacred day

One love in red who loves darkness
And one love in white who loves darkness
One love in black who loves darkness
One love supreme who loves dark

One little butterfly who loves darkness
One tear to cry who loves darkness
One billion angels love darkness
'Cause even God loves darkness

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)


02. Winter Dawn

Green star Sirius
Dribbling over the lake
The stars have gone so far on their road
Yet we're awake

Without a sound
The new young year comes in
And is halfway over the lake
We must begin again

This love so full of hate
Has hurt us so
We lie side by side
Moored but no

Let me get up
And wash quite clean
Of this hate
So green

The great star goes
I'm washed quite clean
Quite clean of it all
But e'en

So cold, so cold and clean
Now the hate is gone
It is all no good
I'm chilled to the bone

So cold, so cold and clean
Now the hate is gone
It is all no good
I'm chilled to the bone

Now the hate is gone
There is nothing left
I am pure like bone
Of all feeling bereft


03. 384 - Kteis

You passed out but now you're back
But all the windows are painted black
A few more minutes of your shame
'Cause this is my game

I would do anything for you
Shiva's soul is coming through
Anything you ask me to do
To you, I would do

Don't you dare to dim the lights
I've already done what you dreamt last night
A few more minutes of your blame
To enter my game

I would do anything for you
Shiva's soul is coming through
Anything you ask me to do
To you, I would do

Let the seven deadly sins
Resurrect what lies within
A few more minutes in the flames
That is my game

And I would do anything for you
Shiva's soul is coming through
Anything you ask me to do
To you, I would do


04. Radiant Star

You're an illusion in a world of disillusion
The gold made from a distant, ancient fusion
You're the crown of creation as we know it
But given just a bit more rope and you'll blow it

I might exaggerate to say this city's burning
But when you're sleeping safe and sound the world's still turning
The trivialities are there to entertain you
To cozily stop thinking 'bout what they do

Throw your diamonds down the drain
You packed the cracked porcelain
Chain, unchain, the dirt is your domain
Don't fuck with my brain

Throw your diamonds down the drain
You packed the cracked porcelain
Chain, unchain, the dirt is your domain
Don't fuck with my brain

All wars start in rooms where big men meet
But are always fought and lost or won on the street
No one's never gonna start a revolution from bed
Put your theories to practice and you'll wind up dead

You've got the freedom to choose what you wanna see
But the bottom in you is the bottom in me
The rock might be thrown from many different heights
But always falls to the same floor through dim red (lights)

Throw your diamonds down the drain
You packed the cracked porcelain
Chain, unchain, the dirt is your domain
Don't fuck with my brain

Throw your diamonds down the drain
You packed the cracked porcelain
Chain, unchain, the dirt is your domain
Don't fuck with my brain

Throw your diamonds down the drain
You packed the cracked porcelain
Chain, unchain, the dirt is your domain
Don't fuck with my brain

Throw your demons down the well
Where once the brightest angel fell
Make your wishes, put your spell
But don't fuck with my hell


05. The Sun Also Rises

In Hamburg suburbia
With a girl from Serbia
With all God's crystal methedrine
A train to take me back to Berlin

All was spoken, all was done
A little Swedish lady came along

I punched a few more holes in my card of living
But I forgot about forgiving
I might have been to Buda or Pest
But not upon your chest

The Bible was right
All rivers turned red
And I'm still not in bed

The crystal fumes, the soothing song
Until another big wave came along
The sign on the river bed, that says
That everything is dead
Everything is dead

I tried so hard to make it right
With plenty of drink and street fight
The morning always shone anew
And somewhere in there were you

Now we're somewhere out
On the North Sea
On our way back to Germany

From Genesis to Exodus
From Kamara up to Olympiados
From Prenzlauer Berg to Aristotelous square
From a Hilton in Paris to anywhere

I had to leave it all behind
To find some peace of mind
The diamond tooth will cut you loose
At any time you choose

The demon king
Is giving in
As soon as his souls stop selling

When everything was said and done
A little Greek beauty came along


06. Before Another Wilbury Dies

Instrumental


07. Love Terrorists

The times they're a changing
All heavens shall fall
At the end of the day
They mean nothing at all

I hear the call for a revolution
And you're not part of our solution
I won't shut my mouth no more
My heart won't never be ignored like before

I never demonstrated
I always loved, never hated
It doesn't need to be debated
'Cause my hate was just belated but awaited

(Can you hear me?)
(Can you hear me?)

On a 42-inch plasma screen
I watch the tears of Jesus
Crying out all gods are dead
And hacked into little pieces

Your empty words
Sway through the cirrus
At the end of the day
You've got nothing on us

We're approved by the weather gods
And all the others share our blood
Though I don't even speak the language
I can surely feel the hellish anguish

Go ahead and throw the first stone
And suck your kingdom to the bone
Keep on and criticize us
Awake the gods on Olympus for us

(Can you hear me?)
(Can you hear me?)

On a 42-inch plasma screen
I watch the tears of Jesus
Crying out all gods are dead
And hacked into little pieces

Have no fear
Never care
Always dare
Never fail
We shall prevail
This is who we are
A conscious for war
A conscious for war

(Just hear me)
(Can you hear me?)


08. Messinian Letter

Look outside the window
Baby, everything will be just fine
In just a little moment
The dark is gone and the sun will start to shine

And all the clouds of grey, they are not yours
So please let me see you smile again
You are my only friend
I want you to be happy again
I know what you've been through
And I know what has to come
Please don't try to face it all alone
'Cause you are my only friend
You are my only friend

I am here beside you now
To help you and to guide you to the light
Today, my darling, little birds are singing
And the sun is shining bright

And all the clouds of grey, they are not yours
So please let me see you smile again
You are my only friend
I want you to be happy again
I know what you've been through
And I know what has to come
Please don't try to face it all alone
'Cause you are my only friend
You are my only friend

Look beyond these corridors
The darkness in your soul
I am here to drag you up
From that empty hole
And try to look beyond
All the sad things in this world
There will be more wars and deaths
Before all flags are furled

You are my only friend
You are my only friend
You are my only friend
You are my only friend


09. Thunder & Lightning

[LUCYFIRE Cover]

Your blood is cold as ice in the summer
And you're steaming hot in the winter
You lived your life on Baphomet's throne
And you are so much like me

You hide away from the light
And that's how it begins
Forget the sunshine for a while
And dance with me into night

Celebrate the thunder and lightning
Raise your glasses high to the thunder and lightning
Thank God for the thunder and lightning
Celebrate tonight

And our smoke is going down
And snow is falling outside
Through laser stroboscopes
And I see your face in there

You hide away from the light
And that's how it begins
Forget the sunshine for a while
And dance with me into night

Celebrate the thunder and lightning
Raise your glasses high to the thunder and lightning
Thank God for the thunder and lightning
Celebrate tonight

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Through rain and stormy weather
With black boots of leather
You're the flame, you're the fire
Fully equipped with dark desires

You hide away from the light
And that's how it begins
Forget the sunshine for a while
And dance with me into night

Celebrate the thunder and lightning
Raise your glasses high to the thunder and lightning
Thank God for the thunder and lightning
Celebrate tonight

The rain, the dusk, the dirt, the dark
And the thunder and lightning
To the South and the North and the East and the West
For the thunder and lightning
And thank God for the flood and the darkness in our blood
And for the thunder and lightning
Celebrate tonight

11. Born To Die

[LANA DEL REY Cover]

Feet, don't fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Oh, my heart, it breaks
Every step that I take
But I'm hoping at the gates
They'll tell me that you're mine

Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or desire?
I feel so alone on a Friday night
Can you make it feel like home
If I tell you you're mine?
It's like I told you, honey

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough, I don't know why
Keep making me laugh
Let's go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words
This is the last time
'Cause you and I
We were born to die

Lost but now I'm found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find
All the answers, honey

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough, I don't know why
Keep making me laugh
Let's go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words
This is the last time
'Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
The road gets tough, I don't know why
Keep making me laugh
Let's go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words
This is the last time
'Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die


12. The Red Of The Morning Sun

I woke up early this morning
When the columns of night
Went pale white
The shades of faith disappeared
And the sky above you
No longer blue

When did our moon cease to bleed?
When shall the colors be freed?

To bring back our gold
And to bring back the red of the sun
To bring back our gold
And to bring back the red of the sun
The red of the morning sun

1 part of crystal oxygen
2 parts of glycerin
3 parts of cold spring water
To bring back the 4 river daughters

5 steps out of the black room
With 6, 6, 6 of gloom, leaving
7 seashells on the shore
Whisper 8, 9, 10 and I wanna hear more

I looked through the prism
When color went away
And faded into grey
And the sun was still shining
In the morning but pale white
So white

When did our moon cease to bleed?
When shall the colors be freed?

To bring back our gold
And to bring back the red of the sun
To bring back our gold
And to bring back the red of the sun
The red of the morning sun

Is this all we get?
Is this all there is?
Is this all we get?
Is this all there is?
Is this all there is?


13. Paradise

[BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Cover]

Where the river runs to black
I take the schoolbooks from your pack
Plastics, wire, and your kiss
The breath of eternity on your lips

In the crowded marketplace
I drift from face to face
I hold my breath and close my eyes
I hold my breath and close my eyes
And I wait for paradise
And I wait for paradise

Virginia hills have gone to brown
Another day, another sun going down
I visit you in another dream
I visit you in another dream

I reach and feel your hair
Your smell lingers in the air
I brush your cheek with my fingertips
I taste the void upon your lips
And I wait for paradise
And I wait for paradise

I search for you on the other side
Where the river runs clean and wide
Up to my heart the waters rise
Up to my heart the waters rise

I sink 'neath the waters cool and clear
Drifting down I disappear
I see you on the other side
I search for the peace in your eyes
But they're as empty as paradise
They're as empty as paradise

(Oh)
(Oh)

I break above the waves
I feel the sun upon my face

(Oh)
(Oh)
(Oh)
