01. Opening

Bienvenue mes amis!
Welcome to laugh and tragic, zu Unschuld und Sünder!

Kommt mit uns in die tiefen der grenzenlosen Lyrik
einer Wellt voller Gedanken und Geheimnisse

Mesdames et Messieurs,
Meine Damen und Herren,
Ladies and gentlemen!
Willkommen im paranoid circus!


02. Welcome

Welcome my friends
Welcome to laugh and tragic
To innocence and sin
It's calling and curse
We're here to play the game again
The show must go on

Moving home where silence's waiting in each shaded corner
Laughing at my face when I need shelter from the world but
That is life, from time to time it's falling to pieces
So I open up my heart and let the music grow cause

It is the old soul inside the melody and
We are all addicted to
It's a mirror-writing-world
It's melting mind and deed in harmony
Healing just as ruin
But it's worth the fall, it is our last escape

Welcome my friends
Welcome to laugh and tragic
To innocence and sin
It's calling and curse
We're here to play the game again
The show must go on

Hopelessness on thousand walls
Singing songs of freedom so
Hate the flying bird as you love his song

From the most distance time
I see my dignity fail
All the wasted tears about a barren land
Don't sow the tree of life
From the most distance time
I see my dignity fail
All the wasted tears about a barren land
Don't sow the tree of life
Don't sow the tree of life

Waking up in ease and comfort, greet the lovely morning
Each and every day beside your calm, familiar presence
It's like a symphony, an everlasting mercy
So I open up my heart and let the music grow cause

It is the old sole inside the melody and
We are all addicted to
It's a mirror-writing-world
It's melting mind and deed in harmony
Healing just as ruin
But it's worth the fall, it is our last escape

Welcome my friends
Welcome to laugh and tragic
To innocence and sin
It's calling and curse
We're here to play the game again
The show must go on

In elation and delight
Lies no eternity so
Love the bounteousness as you fear the end

From the most distance time
I see my dignity arise
Into the sky, into my heart
Sowing the tree of life
From the most distance time
I see my dignity arise
Into the sky, into my heart
Sowing the tree of life
Cherish the bloom of life
Gather the fruits of life


03. Like A Feather In The Wind

Look at me I guess I am
Like a feather in the wind
Signs and wonders all out there
I will seek; I will never come to rest

I am leaving now, and this time it is for good
Don't waste your time to talk me out of it
For I won't cry a tear for you
This is not the end it's the beginning of my life
As it's meant to be, fabulous and colourful
And you can never see

This world isn't what it seems
It's cruel and cold and bitter
Where I go there's a beautiful sky
There is hope in the dark of the night
I get lost in a dream of a hummingbird
How it's eager to fly
On it's way to paradise it
Puts a feather in my hand

Look at me I guess I am
Like this feather in the wind
Signs and wonders all out there
I will seek; I will never come to rest

I will turn around and I will see a foreign street
Leading me away from your deceitful ignorance
That's chasing me this way
This is no equality; it's nothing but a lie
I forgot to see the fascination of a dream
That you can never be

Please don't come near, your eyes are
Asking me to stay here
Can't you understand, I am meant to fly away, away

This world isn't what it seems
It's cruel and cold and bitter
Where I go there's an ever-blue sky
There is hope in the dark of the night
I get lost in a dream of a hummingbird
How it's eager to fly
On it's way to paradise it
Puts a feather in my hand

Look at me I guess I am
Like this feather in the wind
Signs and wonders all out there
I will seek; I will never come to rest

Look at me I guess I am
Like this feather in the wind
Signs and wonders all out there
I will seek; I will never come to rest
I'll never come to rest

(Come with me, I have waited for you, in your dream,
All this time I've saved my gift for you)


04. The Regret

Whatever I've searched
I was sure it won't take a lifetime to find
So I left with words of confidence
The angel of revenge was the fellow by my side

I held your love right in my hands
Along with your vow
Turning away for glory and fame
Now left me a dying fool

Angel of death, cold hands on my shoulder
But I'm just having thought of you
Beautiful queen of my broken heart

I held your love right in my hands
Along with your vow
Turning away for glory and fame
Now left me a dying fool

Take me to the flames
Burn the shroud into ashes
Step by step the flames
Take me close to you
And back to times when

I held your love right in my hands
Along with your vow
What I may have searched I couldn't reach
I've had it all in you

I held your love right in my hands
Along with your vow
Turning away for glory and fame
Now left me a dying fool


05. Elderberry And Lavender

Elderberry and lavender
yet in full bloom when we first met
In your eyes such a blossom
oh this beauty I'll never forget

Sepia-coloured memories nailed
like butterflies in a neatly row
And yet preserved for the sweet day
When I hear them crying
Help me! Free me!

You left me, sweet, two legacies
A legacy of love
A heavenly father would content
Had he the offer off
You left me boundaries of pain
Capacious as the sea
Between eternity and time
Your consciousness and me

On and on, love and sorrow
like a laurel crown on your head
Have you seen that little photograph
on the wall that detains the sunset.

Sepia-coloured memories nailed
like butterflies in a neatly row
And yet preserved for the sweet day
When I hear them crying
Help me! Free me!

You left me two legacies
A heavenly father would content, had he the offer of
(A legacy)
You left me- boundaries of pain
(A legacy of love, he would content, had he the offer of)
Capacious as the sea
(Between eternity, eternity and time, your consciousness and me)
Your consciousness and me, and me

Sepia-coloured memories nailed
like butterflies in a neatly row
And yet preserved for the sweet day
When I hear them crying
Help me! Free me!


06. Lullaby

Sleep well sweet child
I am here to watch your dreams
Don't be afraid
The moon above just gleams for you
Don't mind the wolf, he is not near
He's a friend of the night, my dear
Hush don't you cry, he is not near
We are friends of the night, my dear

And I run and I hide in the dark
Threatened by each distant bark
Sleep little love, for heaven's sake
It's not your fault; it's your cruel, ruthless fate
It's not your fault; it's your cruel, ruthless fate

Prophecy of the old age
Still sounding out my son's decline
He is the one to free us from the tyrant
So I flee from bloodhounds eager to kill

(And I sing) / (Sleep well sweet child)
I am here to watch your dreams
Don't be afraid,
The moon above just gleams for you
Don't mind the wolf, he is not near
He's a friend of the night, my dear
Hush don't you cry, he is not near
We are friends of the night, my dear

They shall not get my loving child
As long as I am by his side
I am the shadow runner in time
Here and there, never to find
Here and there, never to find

And I run and I hide in the dark
Threatened by each distant bark
Sleep little love, for heaven's sake
Sleep for I'm here to fulfil your fate
Sleep for I'm here to fulfil your fate


07. Foeman's Bride

Black like the rose
That fell on the floor
Near to your toes
In days before

Black like the night
In her ivory tower
In her darkest hour
All words are so trite

Kindred in mind
Connate to the core
Granded and blessed by his light
So he must be the one to show me
How to live and never die

Oh my dear, it's time to step aside
Be aware! You've become your foeman's bride
The higher you will go, the deeper you can fall
So close your eyes and let the darkness call

Black like wet stones
After a sudden rain
Your tears bemoan
The despair in vain

Black is the colour
Of my lover's eyes
Black that ain't cover
My time still runs dry

Captured in mind
Deprived of the marrow
Enslaved and constrained by his light
So now he is the one to show that
Lover's eyes are black and they can lie!

Oh my dear, it's time to step aside
Be aware! You've become your foeman's bride
The higher you will go, the deeper you can fall
So close your eyes and let the darkness call

Oh my dear, it's time to step aside
Be aware! You've become your foeman's bride
You've gone the highest way, you'll fall into disease
So close your eyes and let the darkness seize


08. The Wolf

Never had been so cruelly cold and long a winter
Over the glaring white mountains

By night you hear the wolves howl
Hungry, desperate souls
Dying a bitter winter death
Moonlight in his eye

A haggard wolf as furtive as a ghost
His narrow shadow glinting in the whiteness
He turns his head into the wind
Picks up the trail
He's on the prowl with glassy eyes
He never sleeps, bargain for live

Take a look around, can't you see the wind, the hills, the snow
They're yours; they're his as well as mine
Most precious gift in desperate times

A haggard man with tired steps and a loaded gun
Waiting in the glaring white mountains

By night he hears the wolves howl
Hungry, desperate souls
Dying a bitter winter death
Moonlight in his eye

A sudden move in densely corpse
The bottom line,
A sounding shot, a tortured cry
And fleeing gaits lost in the night

Take a look around, can't you see the wind, the hills, the snow
They're yours; they're his as well as mine
Most precious gift in desperate times

On and on he stumbles through the woods
Warm blood trickles down, down, down
Step by step, the hunter's there
But he couldn't see the brightness of the moon
As he ends his work

Take a look around, can't you see the wind, the hills, the snow
They're yours; they're his as well as mine
Most precious gift in desperate times


09. So Long, My Love

And the night that you left me
Was the dawn of a warm, wonderful summer day
Promised roses and sunshine
Washing anger and heartaches away
So I opened the door, let the sun - in his grace -
Clear the dust all around
And in shimmery light I could see
All the trash and the waste on the ground

The picture of us
Fell off the wall when you bashed the door
I changed the glass
Hung it up once more
I remember a time
When a kiss could heal the world's disdain
I'll miss the bliss we had, I'll miss the pain
So long, my love
So long, my love

The porcelain vase you broke in a fight
I found every shard and I fixed it quite right

Then I saw the windows
Misty with spite that I threw
All the years, now and then
Over things I don't even know
And I see I was wrong
And I'm willing to gather those tears
That I cried and I wash the dead panes
Till again they are bright
So you see I am sorry and it wasn't all right

A last twist with the broom, crossways the room
Then I looked at my work and here's what I saw

It's the room that we shared
For so long; all the good, all the bad time's in here
Though you left with half of it
There is still enough memory to bear
But I burnished and furnished
Mend what was broken, repaired furniture
I arranged everything perfectly
My last gift to the treasure we are

It's the key with your name
I wear on a string by my heart
When I know it is there
We're not so far apart
I remember a time
When a kiss could heal the world's disdain
I'll miss the bliss we had, I'll miss the pain
So long, my love

It's the key with your name
I wear on a string by my heart
When I know it is there
We're not so far apart.
I have to leave, lock the room for it was not meant to be
But I hope one day you'll visit it with me
So long, my love


10. My Unawakened Soul

Frontier runner between worlds
That's my talent and my bane
Every one's demonize me
Fear for live every day
Catch the torchlight no one takes care of my unawakened soul

They stand side by side
Well prepared for the monster that's me, I'm disgraced
This is the clannish pride
Their flambeaus light the way to the stake
I will burn

Burn heathen burn


11. Paranoid Circus

Hands and fingers, arms and neck
For the promise to find out
What it is all about
It's already down to heads or tails

Moira did belief in virtue and honesty but
You know innocence breaks so easily

So you can't choose it's not on you to know what's right
Everything is set for the final fight

Deep inside you know it's not just black or white
You are well prepared for the final fight

Every day is judged by the framework
Of your certain point of view

Life is change just like the withering truth

Truth is just a philosophic term
That doesn't serve the ways of life

Those who want to know bout life must
Find the trace of truth

I'm tired, would you take me home
Where I can rest in your arms
I don't need to make amends
But the streets where you take me home
Recall my paranoid circus of formative years

Playback life and anabolic arguments instead
Maybe that's it all about
It's already down to heads or tails

So she killed herself on a lovely morning
And the rising sun smiled in her numbly eyes

So please show me where the truth is in that sweet tale
You have to admit, it's nothing but a bale

Everything has failed if you can't see what's bright
What you see out there is just what you see inside

Reality is nothing than the register
Of crimes of a humankind

Now you agree it's up to us to do the what's right

Right comes along with fortune
But fortune is a furtive friend indeed

You can only find the key of fortune in yourself

I'm tired, would you take me home
Where I can rest in your arms
I don't need to make amends
But the streets where you take me home
Recall my paranoid circus of formative years
Of formative years
I'm so tired


12. The Wheel Of Fortuna

Finally he planned the step, leaving all behind
Leaving home and well-known ground
For a new world to be found
Cause it has been his dearest wish
Since he was young
To travel around the world, to be fancy-free
But every time he set a date there was a little something to care about
So he never left

Don't look at me that way
I cannot tell why you're still messing up
It is a miracle that you will fail
When a dream comes true
And every time you fall
In the first moment you think you can fly
But you are not a bird and life is catching up as you know

Not too young and so in love and perfectly close
But yet no answer in her heart
When he came to propose
So she said she needed time
But as she hesitated, he knew so well
Time was not his friend
Time went by without a word
And he was not the man to ask again
Eventually he left

Don't look at me that way
I cannot tell why you're still messing up
It is a miracle that you will fail
When a dream comes true
And every time you fall
In the first moment you think you can fly
But you are not a bird and life is catching up as you know

You're Mr Significant, always on the run
Busy as a man can be
Never time for your son
Your absence was a heavy weight
No one can bear a lifetime of ignorance
So he turned away
And one day you came to see
That he grew up
And you missed the biggest part
A stranger to his world

So my friend you're fallible
Sometimes up and sometimes down
The spiteful wheel of Fortuna

Don't give up it's not your fault
Sometimes up and sometimes down
The spiteful wheel of Fortuna

Don't look at me that way
I cannot tell why you're still messing up
It is a miracle that you will fail
When a dream comes true
And every time you fall
In the first moment you think you can fly
But you are not a bird and life is catching up as you know!

Don't look at me that way
I cannot tell why you're still messing up
It is a miracle that you will fail
When a dream comes true
And every time you fall
In the first moment you think you can fly
But you are not a bird and life is catching up


13. The Way To Nowhere

Instrumental


14. Another Time

He came along
He passed your way
Did not empathize
Time is not over
life's just begun
But he won't care

I had a feeling deep inside
But my mentation thrust aside
Don't disavow this
Why does it happen all to me
Who is the bewildered designee
From now on nothing's more the same

Behind the light and far beyond our mind
There we will meet in nowhere
Another time and in another place
When I'll leave
You will invite me with your embrace

Can't let you go
Retire from the world I undergo
Have only the memories - they make me cry
And smile although

It makes no sense to forsake
Live will go on without a break
Words cannot salve it
So many questions in my head
So many things I never said
From now on this will remain unchanged

Death is nothing at all, it is our fate

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die!

Behind the light and far beyond our mind
There we will meet in nowhere
Another time and in another place
When I'll leave
You will invite me with your embrace
