02. Starfish Ride (For A Million Dollar Handshake)

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
Come down to my echo mind
feverdreams of neurotic kind
but I cannot feel you

Head down and straight in line
feverdreams of a foreign tribe
but I cannot feel you
cannot see behind your eyes

Come ride on a starfish's spine
6 1 7 and 49
but I cannot feel you

Would you join my starfish ride
for a 6 1 7 and 49
still I cannot feel you
cannot see behind your smile

No tears, no more cries
no predicted paradise
no dreams, no more scars
no love to forever last
hey little lucifer inside

Way down for handshake time
scorn for the devil and love is mine
but I cannot feel you

Would you join my watergun ride
for a 6 1 7 and 49
but I cannot feel you
cannot see behind your...

No tears, no more cries
no predicted paradise
no dreams, no more scars
no love to forever last
hey little Lucifer inside

No tears, no more cries
no predicted paradise
no dreams, no more scars
no pain to forever last
hey Mr. Lucifer, you're mine

No tears, no more cries
no predicted paradise
no dreams, no more scars
no love to forever last
hey little Lucifer inside

No tears, no more cries
no predicted paradise
no dreams, no more scars
no pain to forever last
hey Mr. Lucifer, you're mine


03. Serpentine

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
Deep inside I'm dying
deep inside I'm hiding
deep inside my every word a cry (alone I cry...)

Deep inside I'm heartless
deep inside regardless
kill for me, my every word a lie

Deep inside a child
when tears and dreams go wild when
deep inside comedian for life

Say will I die for you?
see I was always there to run
will I deny for you?
the smiling scarecrow on your tongue
say will I die for you?
see I was always there to run
say will I die for you?

Deep inside I'm dying
deep inside I'm hiding
speak to me the words
of love and trust!
(I feel distrust)
burn for me my neonworld to dust!

Say will I die for you?
see I was always there to run
will I deny for you?
the smiling scarecrow on your tongue
say will I die for you?
see I was always there to run
say will I die for you?

And in the distance I'm alive
and in the distance neon lights so far away from me
and in the distance I'm alive

And in the distant smile I'll pass on by
and cross the plans you made, the suns you burned
the distance walks away

Say will I die for you?
see I was always there to run
will I deny for you?
the smiling scarecrow on your tongue
say will I die for you?
see I was always there to run
say will I die for you?


04. Children Of The Sun

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
We are children of the sun
we are children of the rain
pale and wonderful and wild
we are children of the rain

We are children of the sun
we are children of the rain
walking handsome, brave and sane
we god's children down the drain

We are children of the sun
we are children of the rain
marching handsome, brave and sane
we god's children down the drain

You know, this night we can't save you
goodbye, small world undergone
you know, this night we can't heal you
goodnight, small world undergone
you know, this night we can't save the world
nor do we save you any time at all


05. The Marching Sane

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
The autumn in your eyes
the salty dark within your veins
we walk the streets at night
a searing spark inside our cage

Your sight it burns so painful
turn around and burn me painful

No light can release my pain
not a young god
I spit in the eyes of the marching sane
and in the young ones
and the world will turn in vain

The autumn in your smile
don't dare to walk another way
and when there's no behind... don't look back!
we praise the dawning day

Your sight it burns so painful
turn around and burn me painful

No light can release my pain
not a young god
I spit in the eyes of the marching sane
and in the young ones
and the world will turn in vain

No light can release my pain
not a young god
a tiptoeing knife in the back they reign
all the young ones

No light can release my pain
not a young god
I spit in the eyes of the marching sane
and in the young ones
and the world will turn in vain


06. Breach

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
Walk in the rain, boy
hurry my pale boy, run!

Talk to the screen, boy
splinter the green, boy, run!

And while we're waiting to feel the sunlight
and while he's running so far from home
and while we welcome the same old morning
our dreamer walks alone

Bury your spleen, boy
feed the machine, boy, run!

Slave to the grind, boy
ashgrey in mind, boy, run!

And while waiting to feel the sunlight
and while he's running so far from home
and while we welcome the same old mourning
our hero walks alone

Kill the sun,
kill the moon,
kill the stars!
kill the sun,
kill the moon,
and your stars!

Kill me, entertain me,
get the hell out of your stars!
kill me, entertain me,
get the hell out of your scars!


07. Portsall

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
We laid on the back on a latesummernight
when we ran out of words we could say
like two stranded stars on a deepfrozen sky
so gone but afraid not to say

We counted the stars any latesummernight
and we watched their departure all day
"tomorrow we'll join 'em" we dreamt many times
but tomorrow was so far away

And the moon, and the stars,
and the summernight sky
that dirty old barn, and the grey in our eyes
the harbour, the sea, and the rivers of plight
and still we're so far away...

And still we lay on the back
another latesummernight
so gone but afraid not to stay


08. Justine

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
You run deeper and faster
you run past the disaster
you run... a smile in the suitcase
you run... a nowhere inside

You know you'll never fly
so close you tried to feel the fire
but to forever try
one day your wings will learn to fly

You run restless and wired
you run trembling and tired
you scream out to the nowhere
Justine, alone against the tide

You know you'll never fly
your name won't be no running fire
but to forever try
one day your feet will sear the sky

And while the miles fly away
memories decay
the years are dying

Each year for birthday a card
few words from the heart
a note from the run

You stop.
taking a breath while
you lock away the past miles
sit down!
the running is over
Justine, I know where you hide!

You know you'll never fly
your name won't be no running fire
but to forever try
one day your steps will take you higher


09. The Carnage People

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
All night, fire longs for fireflies
All night, lightened by a handgun light

War is over and tonight reload my arms

All night, shaking down the smile I hide
All night, happiness when words collide

War is over and tonight we'll carry on

War is over and gone
War is over and gone

There's no god, there's no god on my trace
there's no god in the smile on my face
there's no god in the hands that I shake
there's no god in the kiss that I rape

Silence in my heart
silence in my heart

War ain't over and tonight I'm out for more

All night, burning down the bedroom light
All night, carnage people by my side


10. Merlin

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
Merlin, the sea, lunar delight
Merlin, my dear uranium bride
Merlin, my birth, my solar grenade
Merlin, so real, is what I elate
come and get me...

And we dive away now...
utopian grey now!

Merlin, my fear, my cosmic perfume
Merlin, the seed, the snake I consume
Merlin, my sin, my Lilith in flames
take me away on luminous trains
come and get me...

And we dive away now...
utopian grey now!

Merlin try to break me, take me, hate me
Merlin try to haunt me, be my sun

And we dive away now...
utopian grey now!


11. Cupid Of The Carrion Kind

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
There in the dark it's the only abuse
walking frail to the guardian light
there in the dark where the road is a fuse

And he said...
will you be a light for me
to seduce to elude to grin?
will you be a light for me
walking in for a holy sin?

There in the dark it's the only abuse
that I can't get out of his sight
there in the dark it's the only abuse
when the frail old man he smiles

And he says...
will you be a bride for me
on your knees for a second run?
will you shoot the sky for me
stealing streetlight just for fun?

I cannot see your sun so far away
I cannot be four lightyears far away
I cannot see your sky so far away
I cannot see your light another day

there in the dark
ten years older and wise
still there's a frail, frail guardian light
there in the dark, back to preach of the night
see the face of the old man is mine

...gaze of the old man is mine


12. For Tonight

Music & lyrics by FLOWING TEARS
For a while sunlight has faded
for a while the liveboats have passed
for a while children corroded
and all we see is utopian grasp

For tonight I feel not sorry
for tonight a cigarette for god
for tonight don't dare to call me
'cause I'm not here. I'm out for a walk.

For a life, for god and the nation
for a life forget how to love
for a life walking courageous
and all we fear is the heaven above

And for now I drink to the faithless
to the weak, the crippled, the tall
and for now, tomorrow and anon
don't you now I don't care at all?

For a while sunlight has faded
for a while the liveboats have passed
for a while children corroded
and all we see is utopian grasp
