01. Ministry Of Saints

When the lights go down you feel it come alive
Driven by the dread of love that never passes by
When the night unfolds a veil across the day
Waiting for the flood to come to wash the stains away

Look at the clouded sky
Poisoned rain, angels cry
Cracks show in the seal

Tonight a thousand angels fall
Heaven's up against the wall
Changes holding sway
We can make you anyone
By the morning we'll be gone
The ministry of saints

You're afraid to disappear beneath the waves
Bread and circus, bread and wine
They rain on your parade
Round and round and round
You're spinning like a wheel
Crying for redemption you break the seventh seal

We're cleansing your soul from sin
Plead for you, angels sing
We're taking pride of place

Tonight a thousand angels fall
Heaven's up against the wall
And change is holding sway
We can make you anyone
By the morning we'll be gone
The ministry of saints

Tonight a thousand angels fall
Heaven's up against the wall
And change is holding sway
We can make you anyone
By the morning we'll be gone
The ministry of saints


02. Sex Fire Religion

Hey there pal won't you gimme an ear
Gimme your everything and keep your fear
Godly voices telling me what to do
They're out for palpitation
Then leave you to your desperation
Take you and tie you and run over you

There's no resistance to the cry of the sirens
Calling you - a razor edge affair
You close your eyes boy
She tears your lids in two
Never even try to miss she's there

And then when the time pieces shatter
I am baptized by the attar
Right into heavens door

Sex Fire Religion
Visionary position
Angel in your temple of pleasure
Sex Fire Religion
I been granted admission
Angel in your temple of love

Wicked wild m'am with a bag full of tricks
And up shit creek there I'm stuck in a fix
Strikes like a bolt from the blue
The siren baits with lubrication
Then she steals your habitation
Rides you and ties you and runs you

Maybe she don't know love
But she knows how to make it
Divinity is running down her skin
In the city of evil we touch the sky
Let the ride to paradise begin

And when the time pieces shatter
I am baptized by the attar
Kick down into the pie

Sex Fire Religion
Visionary position
Angel in your temple of pleasure
Sex Fire Religion
I been granted admission
Angel in your temple of love

Sex Fire Religion
Visionary position
Angel in your temple of pleasure
Sex Fire Religion
I been granted admission
Angel in your temple of love


03. The Pride Of Creation

I can't figure the Lord down in funeral gravity
One finishing touch and the creature is coming alive
As I kneel down and pray
I know God is watching over me
Is He pissing himself
When He's knocking me out of my stride

And on day number eight
When the sun is about to go down
Were we go, what a show
What a nose for blow

You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aardvark
You're divine by the grace of the master above
You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aarkvard
You're divine by the grace of the master above

Hey Frankenstein are you the one I think you are
Godfather If we're divine you are bizarre
I hear you laughing from the loge above
At my expense for your entertainment

Hey Lord above why don't your armies ever smile
Godfather why don't the ever dress in style
And never share the humor that you surely have
Creating me for your entertainment

Why do they have to get married
Before they do what they do
Everyday anyway, when there's hell to pay

You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aardvark
You're divine by the grace of the master above
You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aarkvard
You're divine by the grace of the master above

We fold our hands afraid of what we've done
Fear is the key to you - thy kingdom come
You shake your head and have another wine
Don't you almost die laughing wondering why

Running in the dust, running in the dust
Afraid of the hail stones cold as ice
Running in the dust, running in the dust
Straight to the wastelands
We'll never read your signs

You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aardvark
You're divine by the grace of the master above
You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aarkvard
You're divine by the grace of the master above

You're alive, oh you're alive
You're alive, the pride of creation

Oh you're the pride of creation, yes you are
Oh you're the pride of creation


04. Nine Lives

Silence it ain't the kill but the thrill of the chase
Same old story, same old song
Only the names have changed

Fair warning I could have read your mind in time
By the look in your eyes
Like diamonds turning to ashes
Ties frayed and missed your signs

Now I can't get over you
Cannot get under somebody else
I close my eyes

When all I see is you, you came to drain my love away
But it takes nine lives till it's over
All I see is you, you came to drain my life away
But I got nine, I got nine lives till it's over

All my supplications gone unheard
Your head in my crotch has turned to a boot
But you won't hear a word

Salvation I ride into nowhereand out of nowhere I'll come
The twinge in your brain, the pang pf regret
Don't mess with no son of a gun

I'm gonna get over this
Gotta get under somebody else
I close my eyes

When all I see is you, you came to drain my love away
But it takes nine lives till it's over
All I see is you, you came to drain my life away
But I got nine, I got nine lives till it's over

When all I see is you, you came to drain my love away
But it takes nine lives till it's over
All I see is you, you came to drain my life away
But I got nine, I got nine lives till it's over

Till it's over I got nine lives, I got nine lives


05. Wake Up Dreaming Black

You gotta know
That there ain't always
Words of reason to explain
With those words my heart is falling silent
To let me slowly go insane

God tell me why your voice ran dry
And left me dreaming black

Dying angels, Dying angels
Feeling takes a gun to fire
Reason from a lightening sky
Dying angels, dying angels
I'm agonizing over dreams
Strangled by a feeling
I wake up dreaming black

A million single islands drift apart
And I'm losing ground
The more I feel the less I know
Strait jacket hero inward bound

God tell me why your voice ran dry
And left me dreaming black

Dying angels, Dying angels
Feeling takes a gun to fire
Reason from a lightening sky
Dying angels, dying angels
I'm agonizing over dreams
Strangled by a feeling
I wake up dreaming black

Dying angels, Dying angels
Feeling takes a gun to fire
Reason from a lightening sky
Dying angels, dying angels
I'm agonizing over dreams
Strangled by a feeling
I wake up dreaming black

I wake up dreaming
Another hero a dying hero
Another hero a dying hero


06. Dragonfly

Is it really the treasure of gold
Or the dance on the rainbow itself
Bound to a track
Painting over the cracks
In his dreams they'd put up on the shelf

Little wind-up soldier
With a ball and a chain
Got destinations engraved on your mind
Nom you don't care as long
As you don't make it there
You wanna fly but not arrive

Calling you, calling you
You are the one to hear them
Calling you, calling you
Calling you, calling you
And your daddy don't approve

And when no one's awake anymore
He paints a picture of a strange looking fly
From a distant world
You light and to and behold
It's coming alive

Calling you, calling you
You always hear them speak
Derring-do, derring-do
Calling you, calling you
From a distant burning star

You wanna fly so you drag on flies
Drag on dragoflies
From a suffocating room on a dragonfly
You're riding high when you nasalize
What you pulverie
Make your day and dream away on a dragonfly

Mayday mayday
I ain't fond of smoking
The buzzer knows in dire straits
Selfless without intention
Too late to intermediate
Smoking kills

Calling you, calling you
You are the one two three four
Calling you, calling you
Calling you, calling you
And your daddy don't approve

You wanna fly so you drag on flies
Drag on dragonflies
From a suffocating room on a dragonfly
You're riding high when you nasalize
What you pulverize
Make your day and dream away on a dragonfly

You wanna fly so you drag on flies
Drag on dragonflies
From a suffocating room on a dragonfly
You're riding high when you nasalize
What you pulverize Make your day and dream away on a dragonfly

You wanna fly so you drag on flies
Drag on dragonflies
From a suffocating room on a dragonfly
You're riding high when you nasalize
What you pulverize
Make your day and dream away on a dragonfly

You wanna fly so you drag on flies
Drag on dragonflies
From a suffocating room on a dragonfly
You're riding high when you nasalize
What you pulverize Make your day and dream away on a dragonfly

We're getting high on a dragonfly


07. Thorn Without A Rose

Walking a lonely road in the dark
A scent of rain
Under wings of a clouded sky
Is it a losing game

Running after pictures
Slowly slipping away
Trying to take hold of a memory

Do you remember the days when forever
Had only just begun
You reach for the distance
And when you arrive the distance
And when you arrive the distance is gone
Already gone

Withered rose in the rear view mirror
Fade away and rain came late
Was it all worth it
When it's all been proven just an illusion
A distant memory for

Tomorrow in the palm of our hands
What's gonna be left but a thorn without roses
Tomorrow in the palm of our hands
We're gonna take hold of a thorn
Of a thorn without a rose

Laid out a hedge of thorns around my heart
Pricking your fingers
Our reason and soul
Tearing you and me apart

Bed of roses in the rear view mirror
It turns to thorns
To a bed of thorns
I'd never known that dying embers
Would hurt more than the blazing fire we'd lit

Tomorrow in the palm of our hands
What's gonna be left but a thorn without roses
Tomorrow in the palm of our hands
We're gonna take hold of a thorn without a rose

Why do you think that you have lost
There ain't nobody who has not
It ain't right what I feel
I'll been begging on my knees
For the sun to rise again yeah
Another time

Tomorrow in the palm of our hands
What's gonna be left but a thorn without roses
Tomorrow in the palm of our hands
We're gonna take hold of a thorn without a rose


08. 9-2-9

We opened the door after midnight
To step into a timeless world
Angels and madness been flying around
A crack in the voice of reason
Something has taken over
Preventing us from turning around

Been sailing across the seas
We never arrived but always believed
And now for the first time time I feel
The port I was too blind to see

929 Just a number at sundown
A room with a view
929 A night to remember
929 I been reaching out
I been stumbling around
929 I'm finally home

Been standing there with a suitcase
Surroundings fighting to get out
Send it off to the Lost-And-Never-Found
Maybe I don't have my head on straight
Maybe I'll lose it tomorrow
Preventing me from turning around

Been sailing across the seas
Up in the wind
Plowing through grief
And now for the first time I see
The port I was too blind to see

929 A number at sundown
A room with a view
929 A night to remember
929 I been reaching out
I been stumbling around
929 I'm finally home


09. Speedhoven

Welcome to this wonderworld
Everybody take your sledges
Winterland Plutocracy
Down the slope don't fear the hedges

Everybody in their box
Waiting under rights of action
Raise your heads and hold your breath
I can't stand your putrefaction

I can smell your brain decay
As you look down at the stage and
Drive me mad and then insane
Welcome to the show

You've been waiting for the one
To bring you joy and ecstasy
And you've been waiting for a song
And you demand to feel the tragedy

But when it's right out of control
And it's not your song anymore
And you are ready to forget
The truth that you'd been asking for

I'm not afraid to sacrifice
And I don't care bout your advice
As I spread my wings and fly

No love - it's pain you've come to feed
In mental strain I crawl and bleed
You make me please

Forever roaming
You will hear it scream
The cries of Speedhoven
Forever roaming
Every starless night
You will hear the cries

You'll never get:
I'll never be the one that you want me to be
And all the treasures that you hold
All your diamond rings and gold
All your flake and look and tongue
I have tried and it was wrong

You tried to push me up a notch
But all I made was an itchy crotch
Fornication, ass galore
I wanted love and I want more
Muckrakers waiting for the prey
Muckrakers want me to obey
But you will never own me
Though you pay

This opera is haunted they will say
That's where they've driven the light insane

Forever roaming
You will hear it scream
The cries of Speedhoven
Forever roaming
Every starless night
You will hear the cries
Forever roaming
You will hear it scream
The cries of Speedhoven
Forever you'll hear it scream

In a cold winter night I had a vision
Taking me by my hand
Leading me to the door
To rescue me from the wastelands

The glance of the shining ivories
A world that they can't understand
Out of sound, out of reason
The voice of their laughter was gone

Taken away, time for a change
I'm walking over
Flying away, flying away
Dying into another world
Pure and divine
And the laughter dies

Welcome to this wonderworld
Everybody take your sledges
Winterland Plutocracy
Down the slope don't fear the hedges

Forever roaming
You will hear it scream
The cries of Speedhoven
Forever roaming


10. Dead Or Rock

No rules, no pain, no fear and no reason
Full moon, we're insane
Two time and one big treason

There is fire in the air tonight
A wicked sensation
Stick waving, dick waving
Trial run of procreation

Lady don't leave us in a mess
Take the bow and shove it up your ass

Go die or rock tonight
No tradeoff there's just dead or rock
Your house on fire tonight
No tradeoff there's just dead or rock

She reigns and goes down, your muse in prudery
Encaged, enslaved, depraved and shaved
Austerity

We're caviar to the general
Beyond your sight
Rape your imagination
Kicking up a row tonight

Oh we have come to make a mess
Kiss the baton and then shove it up your ass

Go die or rock tonight
No tradeoff - there's just dead or rock
Your house on fire tonight
No tradeoff there's just dead or rock
Expert on art: Aristocratic, uptight and pathetic

Don't need no sympathy
Don't need to play by the rules
Go down in ecstasy, go down on you

Go die or rock tonight


11. Aren't You A Little Pervert, Too?

This one is for our troops
Who beat the shit
Out of bad people
And their families

Aren't you a little pervert too
Just a little handcuff doesn't do
Beat the bullet, push and pull it
Till the crotch is black and blue
Aren't I a little pervert too

Aren't you a little pervert too
Think the seventh orifice will do
You're the socket for the rocket
In my pocket dododoooo
I know you're a little pervert too

There's a million different ways to get off
I have seen it on TV in Tokyo
In Finland and Australia
Not so much in America
Americans prefer the Rodeo

Aren't you a little pervert too
Dream of what a whip can do to you
All your lipstick on my dipstick
As you scream like a baboon
Aren't you a little pervert too

Aren't you a little pervert too
Getting off waiting at the loo
For the hour the golden shower
Is being spilled all over you
I know honey that you want it too
Let me spill my love all over you

I know you're a little pervert too
