Track Name: Wire Doll
bad times are lurking in the mirror
times of rushing and times of horror
his scars are itching in the neonlight
his mind is burning, he´s afraid to face the fight

he feels the pressure to make a decision
that´s the story of his life
he feels the urge to change conditions
sometimes he's afraid to die
a good friend dropped a word
to find the real cause deep inside
what´s he gonna tell him?
it´s out of sight

in the night it´s coming to his bed
and puts a wire hand gently on his head
it holds him tender, it holds him really tight
while he pretends that this will be
the last time

and the monkey in the laboratory cage
seems to show proof
that a living creature can´t exist
without love

he´s bonded to the wire doll
bonded to the wire doll
he`s bonded...
bonded to the wire doll

it's a new day and he´s on the run
it's a new day - another rush has just begun
it's a brandnew day and it´s already getting old
once more he´s reached the peak
of endless doubt

he´s bonded to the wire doll
bonded to the wire doll
he`s bonded...
'cause he ain't got nothing at all
Track Name: Last Night
last night I had an weird dream
slumbering right before I fell asleep
I saw myself with a bow and arrow
hitting those zombies right in their head

I was hitting those zombies right in their head!

oh, I`m about to lose my mind
while I'm trying to to get things right
I`m just about to lose my mind
while I`m trying...I`m just trying...
I`m just trying...

last night this image was haunting me
my subconscious mind just running free
bureaucrats, business class, fuckin' police
a bite from the undead will make you believe

a bite from the undead will make you believe!

oh, I`m about to lose my mind
while I'm trying to to get things right
I`m just about to lose my mind
while I`m trying...I`m just trying...
I`m just trying...

to get them in their head!
get them in their head!
get them in their head!
get them in their head!

cracks on the surface of a stereotype life
cracks in a media polluted mind
square bastards thinking that my life's in vain
I will never let those zombies eat my brain, allright!
Track Name: A Question Of Time
maybe one day you´ll lose control
on conceptions and thoughts
maybe one day you´ll start to see
things you never ever have seen before

maybe you´ll be hearing voices
giving you strange advices
can you feel it coming through the
backdoor of your mind?

a camera implanted in your eye
recording pictures of your life
there`s imaginations that will
cut you like a knife

did you hear what people say
about a chip implanted in your brain?
is this the day when you realise a
conspiracy in disguise?

paranoia, pure delusion
inherent in media confusion
society is blowing minds
a cruel fate or a question of time?

paranoia is blowing minds
a cruel fate or a question of time?
society is blowing minds
a cruel fate or a question of time?

it's a question of...
it's a question of...
it's a question of...
it's a question of...
time...
Track Name: Black Cat
let me tell you about one of these days
when a stray cat crossed my way
i wondered where it came from
and why this happened to me

co-incidence, someone would say
it looked like it was dying away
half starved, half sick
it happens everyday

let me tell you about destiny
running for nothing, no future to see
i wondered where i would be
living out on the streets

nature's cruel, someone would say
you gotta work your life away
wrong time, wrong place
the same shit everyday

every thought was too far away
i had no car and i had no say
working for that stupid company

hurry up man, someone shouts
you got no time, no time for doubts
welcome to reality

black... stray... cat...
just a picture in my head
black... stray... cat...
just something i can't forget
black... stray... cat...
just a symbol in my head

for you it was simply too late
but inside me something's changed
take it or leave it
ain`t that what they always say?
Track Name: Scales
open your eyes and find yourself
feeling a hidden pain
imagine that it's up to you now
to put weights
on your scales

this is a never ending game

you've been keeping quiet for too long
facing the secret door
sweetness and confidence
is what you should be recieving now

from suffered injurys
you divine some infancy
and an ancient childrens face
appears in sudden dignity

you have to have enough weights
as heavy as your heart within
to keep the scales in balance
all your life

this is a never ending game
as heavy as your heart within

you've been keeping quiet
for so long
facing the secret door
Track Name: S.O.N.S
S.O.N.S.
(servants of national security)

talking about simple minds
men of a disgusting violent kind
give `em just a little bit of power
and watch them turning into monsters
talking about simple minds
men who believe they're always right
give `em instructions and give `em pay
and watch them on their mission to obey

i'm trying to believe ...in humanity
we're all of one kind
incredibly stupid
a dangerous breed
incredibly stupid
...

i'm trying to believe ...in humanity
we're all of one kind
brainwash and drill forming
the human mind
brainwash and drill
so terrifying...

riot cops
brainless police
servants of national security
serving their masters
year after year
a brain without doubt
is a brain without
scrouples or fears

talking about the s.o.n.s. of the nation
also the daughters who are just like them
don't miss the chance to smash in their heads
they ain't got nothing in there but... zombie-brains
Track Name: Calyx
restless levitation
promises of gratification
bewitching flavour of sensation
lingering in sweet air
streching out to nowhere
floating waves of desire

down down
i'm falling down
into another state
of inability
down down
direction down
into a whirling vortex

restless levitation
promises of gratification
bewitching flavour of sensation
lingering in sweet air
stretching out to nowhere
floating waves of desire

on a distant shore
shattered minds
like flotsam and jetsam
bobbing up and down
far away laughter
slowly increases
a carnivouros calyx
is swaying in the breeze

a carnivouros calyx - swaying in the breeze
a carnivouros calyx - so sweet, so sweet
restless levitation
promises of gratification
bewitching flavour of sensation
lingering in sweet air
streching out to nowhere
floating waves of desire

down down
i'm going down
into another state
of inability
down down
like a stone to the ground
into a whirling vortex
...
Track Name: Stumbling Block
STUMBLING BLOCK

like a shadow on the wall
time is moving really slow
like a smoldering fire
history´s glowing in this town

newspapers from the bad old days
behind a new and clean surface
monuments are to be raised
a stumbling block placed in your way

now what do you think? what would you have done?
what do you think? what would have happened to you?
what do you think who would have come
to be the first to smash your windows too?

memory´s dying these days
and taking people into graves
you didn´t get to know someone
you could have got an answer from

in your street in every house
take a closer look around
all the doors are locked and behind
theres nothing but a nightmare to find

now what do you think? what would you have done?
what do you think? where would you have been?
what do you think who would have come
to be the first to take away your family?

maps are changing
lines are drawn
the spirit ain´t dying
it´s living on
the root of thoughts
is still alive
the striving for power
and extinction survived
on a different level
in other countrys
time´s changing
constantly
things that happened
in your street
will never be
only a memory

what do you wanna do now?
what do you think should happen?
who are you?
you should ask yourself...

I wanna know
who do you want to be?
I wanna know
who do you want to be?
