Track Name: Meditate / REMIX
Don´t do anything at all just sit under a tree and meditate
The passing people give you a glass of water or something to eat
Sometimes you fall asleep and dream of making love
Those times you feel so ashamed, so weak, but filled with lust

It´s just a change man
From one suffering situation to another

Purity of thought makes the transcendental awakening
Virtue and honor, you´re a failure if you leave the road
And if you talk any nonsense with your master, a shadow
will hide the brightness of your soul
Be proud like a soldier, make you higher,
look downwards at the foolishness

It´s just a change man
From one suffering situation to another

Sometimes you fall asleep and dream of making love
Those times you feel so ashamed, so weak, but filled with lust
Track Name: Cover Boy / REMIX
This morning I woke up to my automatic television
For seven days they played the same old stupid song that also put me to sleep. Zzzzz…

Brainwash. The same pathetic stars that stands for nothing
that you could call honesty, is always there for you
Day and night and inside out at your service
Is this what life´s about?

Went into a store to buy a paper, I see one face all over the place
It´s always so exciting. because a new week means a new face

I throw up when you throw down yourself and pose and pretend
Do you know what you are - a cover boy
I think that´s the way you wanted it to go
You can´t even get me off

Writers who only wants to be a good-looking dancin´ singing fool
don´t seem to care that they´re just tools in the big advertising circus

They are really good at duplicate the good ones
They´re only in it for the money
Playback, join the partyzone. Sex appeal in every home
I´m sure that I can live without it
And you can live without it too

I throw up when you throw down yourself and pose and pretend
Do you know what you are - a cover boy
I think that´s the way you wanted it to go
Dear sweet artist, it´s not your own fault
but you belong to the world of your dreams,
your infantile dreams
Eternal love is here for you
because you are a sexy but pathetic superstar

(…and that is really what they want…)

I throw up when you throw down yourself and pose and pretend
Do you know what you are - a cover boy
I think that´s the way you wanted it to go
La-la-la-la
Track Name: Gentle Red / REMIX
It´s two years since your tragedy
I haven´t got the chance to know you
When I met you on the sidewalk
the sorrow in your eyes was replaced by love
You are delightful my gentle red

I heard you´re flying to New York tonight
You said you´d send me a postcard or two
greetings from your famous friends
they´re kind but always acting, gentle red
I´m happy to see that your energy always
is fluorescent and lightens up the shadows
You are so delightful my friend. gentle red

I kissed you goodbye far to early
Sure we´ll meet some other time
Track Name: Open Up Your Eyes / REMIX
I hope your cheap little finger don´t push the "red"
and your industrial friends can get
some hard treatment that will make them scream:
-We´re not the last ones. We´re not the last ones
We´re not the last

Open up your eyes and see the world go round and round
For a couple of billion years it´s been quite a routine for her
You little narrow-minded man dressed in colored ties
got some new, hot destructive bomb or disease?
Moneymaking, experimenting
No one gave you love and you keep up the same attitude

We used to take everything for granted
The world is suffering, we should stop
acting like we were the last ones here
We´re not the last ones

Open up your eyes and you will feel the pain
But wipe away your tears, it´s nice to be naked in the rain
I know it could be frightening, but have no fear
I don´t think you should trust dear Mr. Leary

Wild views in red, panic in hell

You better get high on your inner flame
It will never be the same
Respect yourself, relax and use your ears
Listen to the magic wind
It´s time for you to go!

Open up your eyes and see the world go round and round
For a couple of billion years it´s been quite a routine for her
You little narrow-minded man dressed in colored ties
got some new, hot destructive bomb or disease?
Moneymaking, experimenting
No one gave you love and you keep up the same attitude

We used to take everything for granted
The world is suffering, we should stop
acting like we were the last ones here
We´re not the last ones. We´re not the last ones
We´re not the last

Open up your eyes and see the world go round and round
Track Name: Introverted Dirt / REMIX
Let me take you to the fantasy of introverted dirt
Have you ever been to such a place before
Let me take you to the fantasy of introverted dirt
Have you ever been to such a place before

Everything is boring I don´t know what to do
It would be nice to travel
but I think I like my house to much
I never see the sunshine ´cause I like to sleep, all day
I have no social life at all, can´t grab no tit
I just turn on the TV-set and laugh a little bit
That´s the one and only friend I got you see, yeah-eh
Well, here I am in my introverted dirt

You don´t need anybody
Don´t even have a telephone
What about your desires?
Stretch yourself out with your remote control, it´s ok, hmmm

Once I had a woman, one could say we have a flirt,
it was my mother and before she died she left me a skirt
That gift is such a nice device to me, yeah-eh
Just looking in the mirror with some imagination
creates a new satisfying experience
Just picture Ma and I cry out with a hurrah
Well here I am in my introverted dirt
I really enjoy my paradise, my body in an introverted skirt

Everything should be under control, no way to fail
I have my work at home, selling underwear by mail
But sometimes I wonder who I am and why I´m here on earth
It´s better not to worry I don´t like to feel sick
but if I do, I take the mirror and give myself a smile
It´s nice and safe to know that you are loved, hmmm
Well here I am in my introverted dirt
I really enjoy my paradise, my body in an introverted skirt

You don´t need anybody
Don´t even have a telephone
What about your desires?
I don´t mind that you are dealing with auto-sex
It´s okay, be a good boy

Let me take you to the fantasy of introverted dirt
Have you ever been to such a place before
Let me take you to the fantasy of introverted dirt
Have you ever been to such a place before
Please never leave the terrific isolated paradise
Well… Introverted dirt
Track Name: All The Flowers / REMIX
He was young and so depressed
He ran a knife into his chest
He started to scream: - I want to live!
But the wish came far to late
But after a year in heaven, discorporated and free,
he misses the pain of unanswered love
Being immortal is quite boring and dull
The absence of flesh and blood is driving him crazy
He wants to go inside a new body

All the flowers disappear if you stop to take your dreams for real
Lovers lust and Buster´s booze still gives you a chance to fly and feel
Rule your rules and let them rust so the love will grow without dust
When it comes then you will find new dimensions
let them through and let them guide

She was guiding everyone to harmony and love
But she couldn´t sleep, didn'´t analyze her dreams
that was dealing with drowning on a horseback and killing snakes
In fact she was the only one untouched by her own mission
Her lovely daughter, never seen or heard, left with a broken heart
Daily screams of agony, she was like a big mistake in her mothers career
Fifteen years old and already a junkie

All the flowers disappear if you stop to take your dreams for real
Lovers lust and Buster´s booze still gives you a chance to fly and feel
Rule your rules and let them rust so the love will grow without dust
When it comes then you will find new dimensions
let them through and let them guide
For you, to you. Try and you will find

I see another picture here
The desillusioned man looking into the empty glass
without the slightest touch of the pictured womens lips
which he needs so….

All the flowers disappear if you stop to take your dreams for real
Lovers lust and Buster´s booze still gives you a chance to fly and feel

If you ever get lost, let me be your guide
This is my lie
Track Name: Kneel Down / REMIX
Kneel down, say your prayer
Forget about your soul
Let the pope turn you on
Kneel down, say your prayer
Forget about your soul

See how they run
How they place themselves in an endless hole
until the love arrives

Dreaming of Miss E..
I was young and I was fat, had a snake like a scarf around my neck
Her dress reminded me of blood, running through the sky
It looks like she is here to show me some legs
Still I am living in the land of temptation
But soon I gonna wonder why love went out of fashion

Hide your love away. Forget about your soul
Let the pope turn you on
Kneel down, say your prayer. Forget about your soul
You better hide your love away
Forget about your sex
You better hide your love away
Forget about your sex
You better kneel down, you better kneel down

See how they run
Like zombie machines on their way to
the bitter loveless end
See how they smile, prominent kings
and princesses and popes and fools over you

There will come a time when God decides to show us the truth of Garden E
It´s like the sexual revolution thing baby, aaahh
Religion can always save you boy
But in a way it´s like putting yourself in chains
No no no don´t enjoy life

Kneel down, say your prayer
Forget about your soul
Let the pope turn you on
Kneel down, say your prayer
Forget about your soul
You better hide your love away
Forget about your sex

Kneel down / repeat /
Track Name: In My Universal Dark / REMIX
Your face fades away. Crystal eyes shine on me
with all the stars in my universal dark

You dream of your sons, the light and the dark
Their plastic skin reflects your fear

Oh my friends, you see one side and you always forget
I´m scared baby
Everybody lies and you always gonna be alone
Alone

The powerful men have a price on your head
They don´t even care if we all were dead
They cheat every day and kill with a smile
I don´t know what happens to the world
My inside is hurt. Truth and justice,
peace and all my hopes vanish up in the air

Love, this strange thing. I wonder what it is
It´s like, - Mother, where are you?
You, where are you, in my universal dark

You want to be seen. You want to hide
The acting is over, talk to me

Are you fed up with the big lie?
I just can´t stand their smiling ugliness
But I don´t believe that everybody lies
and you always gonna be alone
alone

The powerful men have a price on your head
They don´t even care if we all were dead
They cheat every day and kill with a smile
I don´t know what happens to the world
My inside is hurt. Truth and justice,
peace and all my hopes vanish up in the air

They don´t, they don´t, they don´t, they don´t even care
Track Name: Words / REMIX
There´s no words left to sing
Got nothing to say and that´s okay
Listen to the silence. Don´t make a noise
And you will hear things you never heard before

People talk, talk to much. What are we saying?
You say anything to get ahead
You try to give, nobody receives it
But you keep on giving
Giving is the most important gift you can get

Words mean everything to some of us
It´s a religion without a body
Every day words are misused
The liar and intriguer always win the game
It´s hard to express what you feel
Misunderstanding. Confusion and pain
Words can be wonderful
If you stand by what you have said
Make it clearly when you know what to do, and to say
It´s nice to be in love and hear : - I love you
I see it in your eyes
There´s no words left to sing
Track Name: Ugly Alien / REMIX
I want to have my face operated, looking just like you
God, he´s cute with his nose dangling down
I want to kiss him now
I´m an ugly alien to you
I´m so bored with ordinary human beings
acting like they were special

Wish I could marry you and leave with the ship to outer space
Reconcile with our destiny
Let the galaxy inspire our new race

I love the mankind on this planet earth, wish I could stay
Why do you bother with this ugly mess, we better fly away
My people don´t even have a sun
I can understand it, but it´s peaceful and you won´t miss the guns

Wish I could marry you and leave with the ship to outer space
Reconcile with our destiny
Let the galaxy inspire our new race

Wars still going on
Universe is a cold place without the warmth of love
It´s so meaningless and so sad
What do you do when you fight for freedom?
Help me please! Come in my arms!
Let us dangle with our noses, a dance of deprave
Dance on the beach
On the beach, in the sun

Well my darling, time is running out. We better make a choice
Now I know my passion is in the atmosphere, I want a ticket to the moon
Sorry, but I want to stay here
I don´t think you love me anymore

Wish I could marry you and leave with the ship to outer space
Reconcile with our destiny
Let the galaxy inspire our new race
Track Name: Naive Belief / REMIX
We were so happy when we fell in love
Everything was so easy, no need for any friends
But after a while you met another guy and left me

Help me now, I can never ever live without you
I better kill myself
Cannot even talk or walk, sleep or weep
You are gone, I will never ever see you again
How could I be so stupid?
Believe that we love each other all my life?

Back in the good old days when every feeling was new
we trusted each other, you were almost like a mother
But playing that part became a hateful practice
it was not your style
You always knew what to do and to say
I denied my jealousy

Hold me tight, I can never ever live without you
I better kill myself
Cannot even talk or walk, sleep or weep
You are gone, I will never ever see you again

I know we have been stressed and depressed
for a very long time, in fact it´s been to much pressure on us
I can not remember when we last have a laugh
You were my artificial respiration,
how could I believe in such a drag?
Where is the "why" ?

We used to talk about babies, at least of their names
perhaps a salvation for our little "nation"
(an empty place of vacuum created exclusively of early memories)
It seems to me that I have a romantic belief
that´s a little bit naive

Help me now, I can never ever live without you
I better kill myself
Cannot even talk or walk, sleep or weep
You are gone, I will never ever see you again
How could I be so stupid?
I just want to have a romance with you

I must be naive in my belief

Hold me tight, I can never live without you
Help me now, I will never see you again
Track Name: The Morning Star / REMIX
Here he is, the one you´ve been waiting for so long,
he cannot sing or dance, can´t even talk,
no one understands a word
Well…He wants to be a dictator
gonna rule your world, your mind, your body
he thinks he´s so sexy and polite
Girl, he never ever calls you a bitch

I want to communicate
Scream my name and raise your hand,
the secret sign up in the air
Wave to each other. Jump up and down brothers
Sexy girls, if you´re looking for a lover man
you better call me
I never call you bitch cause I love my mother too much
Here I am, the king and emperor
Obey my will, kiss my feet and suck my thumb
Scream my name and raise your hand,
the secret sign up in the air
You are the chosen ones

The Morning Star shines on you
til you can´t breathe or wanna die
If you don´t believe me please give me a call
and I show you some new different emotions
I´ll make you come to heaven or hell
It doesn´t matter because I´m not a star,
I´m a galaxy! Please unite my dark holes!

He has never grown old, he´s still a four-year old boy
afraid of everything. Can never relax,
he´so uptight, can´t even breathe
He never smiles or laughs, have no sense of humor,
look like a croco-crocodile
Watch out baby! Here he is - Mr. Dumb & Dull!

I´m the only answer to your questions and your thoughts
The eternal spirit of all bodies in the universe
Scream my name and raise your hand
The secret sign in the air
Wave to each other my brothers in your funky underwear
You are the chosen ones

The Morning Star, or Lucifer if you prefer
If you don´t believe me please give me a call
and I show you some new different emotions
I´ll make you come to heaven or hell
It doesn´t matter because I´m not a star,
I´m a galaxy! Please unite my dark holes!
I am your God
Oh oh, baby baby
Track Name: One-Way Thinking / REMIX
I´m sick and tired of all stupid one-way thinking
If they looking for trouble, that´s the best way there is
If they never cross the road, there´s no solutions
It´s just a dead end

Dangerous to know the unknown

Exterminate, or sterilize a whole population
I wonder where that hate is coming from
Up in the mountains, where these people live and die
the heaven is screaming for help
I wanna know what´s on your mind
Don´t close your eyes, don´t run away

Here we are, you and me
I don´t know you, I don´t love you
I´m a stranger, but you don´t have to run away or shout
-"Stay out of my face!"
You can climb your tree and feel so free
Open up your hand and show me some respect

"Don´t kill your baby" says the sign on the wall
For women under oppression, this is reality
They can be sold and raped
Slaves without rights or protection
If they (even) have a home

Here we are, you and me
I don´t know you, I don´t love you
I´m a stranger, but you don´t have to run away or shout
-"Stay out of my face!"
You can climb your tree and feel so free
Open up your hand and show me some respect
Here we are, you can smile
I don´t know you, I don´t love you
That expression in your voice
I open up my hand and show you some respect
Track Name: Ride On My Pony / REMIX
My dear, don´t be afraid
I´ll be here with you and you´ll be here with me, my friend
Just be a little girl and play
like you used to do when you were ten years old
and your grandmother laughed with mom and dad at the sea,
when you had your breakfast cup of tea.

Now you can ride on my pony with me
You can cry on my pillow, exclusive just for you
I don´t blame you much for wanting to be free,
that´s the way it should be
Oh, trust me

But soon, the teapot was crashed and in the schoolyard
your head was smashed
You didn´t cry, you didn´t cry and over the years
you had this strange feeling of non-existence

You can ride on my pony with me
You can cry on my pillow
Let us enter the world of high fidelity
With a boundless, timeless and revolutionary imagination
we´ll fly away with my magic machine

My dear, I´ll give you a hand
to bring your stupid thought of perfection to its end
Problems round in circles like a washing machine
And you can feel, it´s time for
the cooperation of our reincarnation

You can ride on my pony with me, yes you can
You can cry on my pillow

I will kiss your clothes off when you dance across my room
Eat some orange, light some candles
How about some slow, slow love

Be a little girl and play. Please don´t be afraid
I´ll be here with you. I´ll be here with you
