Wir folgen eine weile
bevor wir weiter gehen
alleine
die grosse Welt
sovielen Menschen
sovielen Seelen
und weiter geht's
ohne sie, weiter ohne
unfassbar wie Menschen
aller Art, ungenant, ungekannt
unerkannt dein Leben heller machen
und ohne man es begriffen hat verschwinden sie
manchen bleiben, manchen gehen,
manchen kommen wieder oder auch nicht
unzerbrechlich ist die Faden
die uns allen verbindet
die Liebe zwischen Seelen
ist starker als der Hass zwischen Ego
der Egoismus des Hirns
unfassbar schön wenn man fühlt
tief die Liebe sich berührt
und man geht weiter
auch wenn's nicht weiter geht
denn tief drinnen
ist man nie alleine.
When you can dream it, you can do it!

As flowers compete for the sun's rays
the warmth and the love
they huddle themselves around you
and all others become obstacles
to obtain the ultimate love
forgetting all around
dumping the corpses you made on the way
selfish egoistic hurdling
for a ray that shines for everyone
sharing, a life treasure,
togetherness a masterpiece
and yet
how often it's one against all
how often it's about being best, bigger, biggest
how the moon closes her eyes on us
just to proof we're nothing
nothing without the sun's light
the warmth, the love
waiting for us at the dawn to come
forevermore.
When you can dream it, you can do it!

How much similar we are
How much different we formed to be
You are to me
What I always held within
And of course, you must have seen
Everything
And of course, you must have been
That Something
I was looking for and am longing for
Eternally
Yet only internally
Did I allow it to be

How much similar we are
How much bigger your heart is
I'm so small in comparison
Just a light summer breeze
To your gale intermixed
With the tenderest of kisses
Your fire is rampant, my candlelight
Is tranquil
I seem calm but I feel your fire
Melt me from within

Yes, the same tune we're hearing
Yes, the same light we share
Yes, I finally know where
I always come when my flame is gone
Yes, I finally know with whom
I am to stay or to stay alone

Do you want to hear
How my heart regrets it, still?
How my soul was crying
All these years
I was dying
All these years

Hid my self in layers
Of cold steel
As if I could live by sheer will
As if I could force myself to feel
What I was expected to
Was there ever anyone like you
Who cared for me
Dying
Dying because of what they wanted from me
Was there ever anyone
Who cared more for me?

Was there ever anyone
Saving me
The one far had to become the one near
To stand between me and Her
To stop Her from taking me!
My dear
If only I could hear
If only I could hear...

Do you want to hear
How my heart regrets it, still?
How my soul was crying
All these years
I was dying
All these years
You were the only one
Who knew me
You are the one
I betrayed willingly
I hope you're hearing me
Crying
Helplessly
Over the one I was
And what I did to me
And to us
When things go bad -- do something good.

As you tie
My hands
I sigh

Shouldn't I deny
Or at least try
To save me?

In this faith
I am your sacrifice
And I know my face
Is a grimace
Of pleasure
And fear
And running away
Is impossible
You are unstoppable
You flow through my veins
I denied you this for years
Are these the amends
Or are you just making me
See what you can do
That I can't stop you
Or is it me asking you
To do this to me?

Never let you flow through me
Never let you burn through me
Now you're gaining more power
What am I going to discover?
Will I ever recover
Will I ever uncover
That what used to be me
Before I found you or you found me
Was I made this way or did you make me
And you go for more since I let you flow
And I freeze and I burn and I feel undone
Will you ever free me?
For how long
And how strong
Do you feel me?

I'm a vessel you're streaming through
Was it how it was -- was it how I was
To you, and isn't it terrible
And the world is cold and fades in comparison
When you leave the emptiness will shatter me
In the screaming silence
If I could see I would've called it a radiance
But it feels like you just chained me
Forced me to succumb -- and before you were so kind
You approached me gently
Now the storm of you is scaring me
But I will go on

Please, don't do this to me
Please, just caress me
I let you in my soul
Let me get used to it
When things go bad -- do something good.

Memories
Haunt me
The hands extended to me
The alien faces
Just one single trait could do
Just so I don’t feel like I need you
As I know I will never reach you

Not after what I did
Fearing I would be killed for it

My despair
Muffles my soul scream
A voice in a consoling timber
Is slowly hissing words to me
A friend turns into a foe always so suddenly
I forget what I was told not to do, brokenly
Writing, and singing, and drowning
And panicking

What is the point of tomorrow
If I can’t live through my today?

My despair
My unsuspecting naivety
My unchecked emotions
All turn into the coldest of all oceans
I am sprawled in a storm on the north pole
Ice is driving through me its wavering knives of white purity
So much better that feels than the fake warmth of humanity!
So much better this pain feels than seeing what is humanity!
So much lighter it weights than knowing I’m a part of humanity!

My despair
Muffles my soul scream
A voice in consoling timber
Oh, why all things motherly
So captivate me still!
A friend turns into a foe always so suddenly
I forget what I was told not to do, brokenly
Writing, and singing, and drowning
And panicking

What is the point of tomorrow
If I can’t survive through today?

Memories
Haunt me
The hands extended to me
The alien faces
Just one single trait could do
Just so I don’t feel like I need you
As I can reach you only in my soul
But reality will snatch me back and I will drown
But reality will snatch me back as I’m a part of humanity
I am human and it scares me
I am human and they scare me

As a human, I cannot live without them
As a human, I can be just like them
They will break me anyway
I was broken anyway

What is the point of tomorrow
If I can’t reconcile with my today?

To Mother
I recall
Sitting in the taxi warmth
My first achievement you really liked
Not for long
Mother
I never wrote
A rhymed word
For you

I read them to you
To get a fleeting flicker of approvement
My disillusionment
With life sounds so pretty and right
When rhymed

A good daughter always brings joyful news

I recall
Sitting in the taxi warmth
An early morning, an early flight
I never had a stage fright
Mother
Nothing is compared to a fight
With you

No, you're not the worst mother
Mother
I know you think I have no right
To speak what's on my mind
About you

A good daughter is to bring joyful news

Did you really know what to do with me, mother?
Did you really know you should have protected me?
Did you really care what happened to me, mother?
Did you know how often I wanted to free
Free you from me?

Does it make anyone knowing me wonder
Why I run from love as one runs from death?
Does it make anyone knowing me wonder
Why I know all the stages of losing one's faith?

I recall
You smiling, mother
But in your smile, I sense you're not exactly here
Did you ever see the real me?
Why don't you ask why I'm crying, mother?
Why am I not a boy, like my brother?
Life would've been easier for me
But you wanted a daughter, mother
Did you ever know you were killing me?

A good daughter is to be what she must be

Do you know you betrayed me, mother?
No, you're not the worst, of course not
Mother
My voice is joined
By a choir of hundreds of others
Left out in the cold
Unloved
Not listened to
Not trusted
And what was our fault?

I recall
Sitting in the taxi warmth
"Not the first achievement it was
That I liked",
you'd respond, mother
Yes, I lied
It is to cross out everything
To disqualify anything
I could come up
With
No, you're not the worst mother
Mother
I know you think I have no right
To speak what's on my mind
About you

I give myself up to the Lord
It is peaceful
The tears washed away all my hurt
So I pray for your heart
Calmly

May the angels take your pain
Lovingly
Tenderly wrap your soul
In the sweetest of care
So it shines
Dazzlingly
Happily

May your loneliness
Your despair
Dissipate now
I sing to your memory
To release you

She will listen
And finally, yield
My Lord guides
My sacrifice
To be fulfilled
So be it
So be it!

I will cry instead of you
You are free now

I will die instead of you
You can live now

May your demons sleep
They will ignore you
May your angels keep
What should be with you

I gave myself up to the Lord
It is peaceful
The tears washed away all my hurt
I will pray for your heart
Daily

I am happy
To sacrifice my earthiness
To end the pain of loneliness
Torturing your heart

My love
Forever stays true
My love
I’m praying for you
To forget me
To be happy
Finally

I am thankful
Eternally

I gave myself up to the Lord
It is peaceful
The tears washed away all my hurt
I will pray for your heart
Calmly

With these words
You are forgetting me slowly
With these words
Your heart is released tenderly

My love
Are you hearing me?
My life
I am seeing it
How big was my crime
Forgive me, my dearest one
Let’s have our time

Touch me -- forgive me
Take me -- receive me
Break me no more
Kiss me -- confuse me
Play with me -- curse me
Let’s have it all

Yes, it was happening
Yes, I am suffering
Greatly, my love

No, I can’t let it go
No, I will hope for more
Kissing you tenderly
In my cold soul

Dance with me caringly
Dance with me daringly
My tender love

Wrong, I was very wrong
Please, don’t break our bond
Not when I so belong
To you alone

I gave you all my soul
I broke my heart, I call
You to come to my world
Give us a chance

My love
Are you hearing me?
My life
I am seeing it
How big was my crime
Forgive me, my dearest one
Let’s have our time

All is pointless
All is useless
He won't come
Not today and
Not tomorrow
Not for what I've done

This is painful
This is hurtful
This is how things are
All I fought for
All I hoped for
All is gone and now

I am sitting
In my body
Lost within my hurt
I don't want to
See the morning
Not without my love

Being gone now
Being done now
Out the time has run
Would he love me
Would he want me
After what I've done?

This is painful
This is hurtful
This is how things are
All I fought for
All I hoped for
All is gone and now

All is pointless
All is useless
He won't come
Not today and
Not tomorrow
Not for what I've done
When things go bad -- do something good.

Come, the collateral damage of my soul
The magic I was born with
Keep me safe, console me
Raise from the depth of my rhyme
I unbind myself from this realm
For the last time
When things go bad -- do something good.

My heart sees only you

My heart sees only you
My eyes sparkle
A gulp of champagne this feels like

What took me so long to see you
To see the depth of you
The human grace of you
Your real shine

My heart sees only you
You can curse me
You can sulk and hate me, I will fight
For your smile to light up, bright
To warm me
To calm my bruised heart
To call me

My heart sees only you
You can love me
As no one else could do
I recognize you slowly
The grace and light of you
I so adore you!

My heart sees only you
My eyes sparkle
A gulp of champagne this feels like --
Experiencing you

What took me so long to see you
To see the man of you
No image can hide the volume, the hue
The realness of you

My heart sees only you
You can curse me
You can sulk and hate me, I will fight
For your smile to light up, bright
To warm me
To calm my bruised heart
To call me

My heart sees only you
You can love me
As no one else could do
I recognize you slowly
The grace and light of you
I so adore you!
When things go bad -- do something good.

Nothing ever lasts forever
the heart beat I fell asleep on
the breath that stocked when our eyes crossed
your lips pronouncing the words I longed to hear
the statement of the love between us
the governing bond that used to be there
the fear, you remember my fear?
The fear become the truth
I lost, what I loved, I lost again
no more fear because I now know
nothing ever lasts forever
Passed so many crucial memories
blurred with a fog of fear for the future
but we never know what tomorrow brings
we not even know what yesterday brought
behind the screens, behind our backs, in front of our eyes
but that's not of importance
because nothing ever lasts forever
the friends we have today may be our enemies tomorrow
the love we share today might mean nothing within a year
tell me I meant nothing to you!
tell me I was just a number for you!
tell me you hated me from the beginning!
or I saw it all wrong, all so wrong,
I was the mean and cruel liar,
even in my dreams I betray
well I tell you
nothing ever last forever
take your chance now you still can
because one day
one day we'll be gone
one day
love is done
but you know what
nothng ever last forever.
When you can dream it, you can do it!

I'd go through fire for you
not even knowing your darkest secrets
knowing they're there
the harshness in your soul, the marked spots of your light
blurred behind the love you shed
I'd take you by your words
longgonelost behind the trays of humanity
I'm always one step behind the thoughts
it never matters
it'll never matter
I'm done loving because it only hurts
I'm done caring because it only hits in my face
I'd go to hell for you
eternal dying, eternal fire,
replace if I could make up for your flaws
making my own flaws bigger
I'm working on that day by day
lost in a world of chaos
I can't find myself anymore
I can't feel anymore
all is empty
all is gone
all blurred
in an illusional image of utopia.
When you can dream it, you can do it!

Father
Tell me
What am I to do?

Father
The sky is so pearly lit
My soul
Is so longing to it
My mind
Is so tortured by this
World
Father
I said not a word
To You
Of how it all hurt
Truly

Father
I speak in their words
Father
But I am not heard

Father
You know every hue
Of my world
Father
You know every view
Every word
Father
You know that in You
Lies my hope
Father
Please, hear me, my Lord

Father
They feel they can teach me
Father
I see I can't reach them
Father
They think I am done
Wrong

Father
I'm sorry before them
Father
I'm guilty before them
Father
Absolve me for being not like them
I dare not to ask
Your goal

Father
I speak in their words
Father
But I am not heard

Father
They feel they can teach me
Father
I see I can't reach them
Father
They think I am done
Wrong

Father
The sky is so pearly lit
My soul
Is so longing to it
My mind
Is so tortured by this
World
Father
I said not a word
To You
Of how it all hurt
Truly
I dare not to ask
Your goal
I dare not to ask
What for

I dare not to question
I dare not to mention
I dare not to ask
Your intention
I know in my soul
There must be a reason
No answer is given
To me from above

I walk under sunlight
I walk under moonlight
Sleepwalking through life
I dare not to question
I dare not to mention
I dare not to fight

Father
The sky is so pearly lit
My soul
Is so longing to it
My mind
Is so tortured by this
World
Father
I said not a word
To You
Of how it all hurt
Truly
I dare not to ask
Your goal
I dare not to ask
What for

I speak in their words, Father
But I am not heard
I have to go on, Father
Please, grant me your love
