Track Name: Self-Deification
Self-Deification

There's no place I could ever be free.

Running against the walls inside my mind,
enchaining my inmost will; my thoughts undefined
in me...There's no place I could ever be free.

Why did you have to wake me up? Why did you take the last force that was mine:
The power of my dreams?
And I hate this mind - crawling in circles...

I don't want to abandon this craving for perfection.
I don't want to content myself with your peaceful mind. I don't want to live your simple, little life.

There's nothing that could save me - I'm god - don't you know?

There's no place I could ever be
free...
Track Name: Condemned to fall
Condemned to fall

Let me know your shadows,
let me drink your tears,
I'm addicted to your pain, just to feel you near.
Do you really think you could own me?
Do you really think I'm here to stay?
Did you really think you would own me?
I drink your tears before I throw you away...

'Cause I'm still waiting for my dreams,
still waiting for my life to start again, waiting for my mind to grow...
And I'm still waiting for my pain to guide me out
of this endless state of silence I don't need you anymore.
Still waiting for my life Still waiting for my pain to guide me out of here…

Now tell me: Is is that, what you wanted?
Was it this way, where you saw us? How it all would come to an end?

So leugne ich, dass jemals ein Gefühl für dich erwacht,
das mehr war als die pure Gier nach Leben.
Verleugnet jede Sehnsucht, jeder Traum und jede Nacht,
die tiefer schien; es hat sie nie gegeben.

Did you really think you would own me? Did you really think I’d be here to stay?
To be trapped in a life where I’d never belong? How could I forget that you ‘re not of our kind…
Your cowardly weakness was leaving you blind, You were condemned to fall.

Nun sind wir schon wieder an der Grenze unsres Witzes, da, wo euch Menschen der Sinn
übeschnappt. Warum machst du Gemeinschaft mit uns, wenn du sie nicht durchführen kannst?
Willst fliegen und bist vorm Schwindel nicht sicher? Drangen wir uns dir auf, oder du dich uns?

Waiting for the day to come when I begin to believe what’s still not ready to say,
When I feel that my dreams never left my way,
When I finally, truly do believe: I don’t need you I don’t need you anymore.
Track Name: Deceiving Lights
Deceiving lights

Where do we go, when the cold dark night surrounds us?
- the last word is said, the lights go down -  
Are we allowed to realize that we ...?

Where do we go? When every unspoken thought
is banned in silence, the last word is said,
the lights go down - Are we allowed
to realize that we die?

Would you carry all my fears, my questions?
Will you ever be able to tell me more than:

"Don't worry! Stop thinking! Just live for today!
Forget why you're here. Forget what you came for.
Enjoy with all your senses! Just consume the light
...consume the light..."?

My God! Why did I leave you for a world
that won't ever stop blinding my eyes with deceiving lights.
They paralyze my mind.

If only I could find the way back to myself... A thousand
answers - ...vergessen... verlor'n....
Is that your wisdom, your religion, your god
and your belief?:

"Don't worry! Stop thinking! Just live for today!
Forget why you're here. Forget what you came for.
Enjoy with all your senses! Just consume
the light ...consume the light..."

If I could only find... I wish I knew what. Answers? Verlor'n...

Where do we go when the cold dark night surrounds us?
the last word is said, the lights go down -
Are we allowed to realize that we die?
Track Name: Frozen Daydream
Frozen daydream

Did you ever feel this silent craving
that makes you shiver from your own unwanted will?
Did you ever feel guilty for your mind,
when all you need is a path you would follow blindly?
All you do is just burying your hand
between your hands and scream:
Let me go... I can see no reason why to be the slave
of my demands on life; and I just long to be free.

Could I ever be without this silent craving?
That makes me shiver from the dreams I still deny?
Could I stop feeling guilty for my mind, when
all I need is a path I would follow blindly?
All I do is just burying my head
between my hands and scream:

Let me go... I can see no reason why to keep you in my mind;
and I just see: I’m going blind. And you won’t ever know.

Und Leben könnt’ wohl einfach sein
hätt’ man sich nicht dem Wahn verschrieben,
es müsst’ noch mehr dahinter sein.
Von leerer Sehnsucht stumm getrieben

And I don’t know what I see in you.
Is this my life where you lead me to?
Still all I do is burying my head in my hands and scream:
Let me go... I can see no reason why to keep you in my mind;
and I just see I’m falling, see I’m going blind;
and you won’t ever know.

...still... for now: nothing left to do than chasing angels.
Chasing angels... still longing for what I would never dare to feel.
Don’t try to keep me
from myself.
Track Name: Tell me
Tell me

Tell me, have you seen my world?
I don't know where I'm going to,
I'm endlessly lost inside your dreams.
Sitting on my cloud, watching every day that's passsing by,
life's a game that I'm about to lose, it seems.

We run in circles, close our eyes, floating in distractions,
the only aims that matter in this world are built on lies.
How do you manage not to fall - inside this flood of unaccomplished dreams,
of whishes that were meant to lead usfar from what we need?

Now, come on, tell me that it's useless, whatever I may try to make you see
how we go wrong. And though I whish that I could scream it in your face, I talk in riddles...
Well, at least you might know that I ...suffer from the pain we cause with every further step we take.

Don’t you see how they're playing with your desires? Don't you know how they're joking
with your dreams? What is left of your world? Just waste on your screens…

Tell me, have you seen my world? I must have lost it somewhere... I don't remember:
Has there ever been a way to go? Tell me, have you seen my mind? I must have lost it somewhere...
I don't remember: Should I care from what they die?

There’s too much haze to see the blame…

Just tell me: Will this curse come to an end? Who will take revenge on us?
And what may be the price for all we've done?
Track Name: Trapped in Life
Trapped in Life

“ Ist es nicht Staub? was diese hohe Wand,
Aus hundert Fächern, mir verenget;
Der Trödel, der mit tausendfachem Tand,
In dieser Mottenwelt mich dränget?

Hier soll ich finden was mir fehlt?
Soll ich vielleicht in tausend Büchern lesen,
Daß überall die Menschen sich gequält,
Daß hie und da ein Glücklicher gewesen? –

Was grinsest du mir hohler Schädel her?
Als daß dein Hirn, wie meines, einst verwirret,
Den leichten Tag gesucht und in der Dämmrung schwer,
Mit Lust nach Wahrheit, jämmerlich geirret.“

And life goes on
...
in my dreams,
in my world, my pain, my thoughts.
Far away from what I am,
far from what I know I could be.
Trapped in a world of desperate illusions...
And life goes on...
- your feelings won’t ever reach my mind...

(I am) drifting away...

Trapped in a world of desperate illusions;
forgive me – your feelings won’t ever reach my mind.
I just don’t know what life is –
I just don’t know how it feels to be alive
(how it) feels to be alive
