Lyrics

HEADSPACE (2018)

Reason of Man
You kiss with a Gods bloody hand
as if your reason weren’t the reason of man
you won’t reach beyond what you don’t understand

We know your power must install
bad ideas to govern us all
though no idol has answered the echoes of your call

I’m left beyond the wrong side of love
I’m left beyond the wrong side of love
the wrong side of your love

Our world views wail as they crawl
cuz borders of the known aren’t known at all
man made illusions build walls
is praying a worn out jacket when reality calls?

We’re left beyond the wrong side of love
we’re left beyond the wrong side of love
the wrong side of your love
I don’t wanna bring you down

My mind’s set on keep moving and live on
my mind’s set on keep moving and live on
there must be no veil between me and this world

Everything Matters
I had a lovely time
in your part of life
you’re such a nice guy
and your wife is so kind

you blossom like a flower
while the city burns
sitting in your tower
this is none of your concern
and now you’ve come this far
by being who you are

It always matters what you do
it always matters what you say
Well, anyway

I’m from the country side
grew up on a farm
I don’t presume a rich guy
necessarily do harm

only the smallest crimes
get compared to what you do
the massive warning signs
seem to escape you
now it’s time to learn
you get what you give in return

It always matters what you say
it always matters what you do
it always, it always comes back to you

Ronald Reagan (“The Challenger Speech”, 1986)
“I know it’s hard to understand, but sometimes painful things like this happen. It’s all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It’s all part of taking a chance and expanding Mans’ horizons. The future doesn’t belong to the faint-hearted. It belongs to the brave”

It always matters what you say
it always matters what you do

Stardust
I need to get away
I need to get away from here
I need to settle down
I need to settle down somewhere
on the banks of time
you say the time is right
you say the time is right about now
to lose control

There’s nothing that will make us part
you know the feeling too
this point of view
somehow my life connects to you
as it will always do
don’t you see I am a part of you
together we pass through this morning too
somehow I’m stardust like you
that no one can undo

I’m from a small town
I’m from a small town up there
in an old world
in an old world out here
under the bay of stars

The courses we take turn into all kinds of fates
changing through uncertainties
history retells our fates as cojointly
exposing little space for me

There’s nothing that will make us part
you know the feeling too
this point of view somehow
my life connects to you
as it will always do
don’t you see I am a part of you
together we pass through this morning too
somehow I’m stardust like you
that no one can undo

There’s nothing that will make us part
beyond our conscious view and religion too
somehow my life connects to you
as it will always do
don’t you see I am a part of you
I learned a lot from you
as you took me through
momma I’m stardust like you
that no one can undo

Right in time
It don’t seem right
it don’t seem right
it don’t seem right the stars are out and all I can see is you
I wish I could love you lucky I don’t have to

Blue eyes
thought crimes
you fight with yourself feel sick, this you can’t control
I wish l had met you before the beast had fed you

We’ve moving apart
that’s life a la carte
the joke’s on you
I lack words that cut too

I wish I could make it one more time
cool the mind and find my way to you
but the trail don’t take me through

concealed lies, a disguise
I’ll weep tonight, you know, but won’t lose sleep over you though
I wish I could show you
It’s just mama you run to

passing by
watch my planet die
you fondle yourself and feel sick of what you don’t know
I wish I could love you but now I don’t want to

My head runs dry of bright blue sky
it’s time for me to say
I can’t stay with you this way

I wish I could make it one more time
cool the mind and find my way to you
but the trail don’t take me through

I wish I could make it one more time
cool my mind and find my way back to you
but my heart’s cold when I’m close to you

Sotha raiced
When you want me on your side
is it to make you feel you’re right
Your faith belongs to you as my belongs to me

What you do is light my fire
I question you on how and power
your mind refers to you as my does to me
while I free myself from you

No evidence claim will show you’re right
I slip away from you
some believe you more than I do
an innocent cruise in eyes of white
I’m a lonely too
but that don’t justify what we do

Unreasonable words within our time
a logic defending God-centered minds
it makes sense to you, it sure don’t to me
it’s a beautiful world to the beautiful mind
and I understand the need for a guiding line
but your needs belong to you as my belong to me
and I free myself from you

No evidence claim will show you’re right
I slip away from you
some believe you more than I do
an innocent cruise in eyes of white
I’m lonely too
but that don’t justify what we do

No level of faith will show you’re right
believe in what you choose
stay all fuzzy if you have to
and just feel free to moralize
we’re all just passing through
the space we’re slowly slipping back into

Deep Space
Will we ever make sense of our lifes’ entry
of why the stars shine from the past on me
can I trust in my sense of reality if it’s all fantasy?

Will our brains one day learn to see
why we’re born into the arms of a mystery
to be happy we need to find a key
is nonsense to me

We search in the stars for the still unknown
as I search for you
I miss you is the conclusion I’ve come to
I wanna know, wanna know, how life is like with you
the earth may move and I’m moving too
the earth may move and I’m moving to you

Spaceships fly and the spirit is high
a quest for life with the newest EmDrive
once again saved by technology
love didn’t set us free

We search in the stars for the still unknown
as I search for you
I miss you is the conclusion I’ve come to
I wanna know, wanna know how life is like with you
the earth may move and I’m moving too

If our search in space is an eternal one don’t wait for rescue
just save our kids from the likes of me and you
i wanna know, wanna know, wanna know what is out there too
when space moves it moves me too
and when space moves I move into you

Deep space will waste you
deep space holds you
deep space awaits you
deep space knows you
no mind is a number
a mind is a number

New Start
Just a phone call from you
Let me know where the future leads me to
Will I end up as a fool
now you mean more to me than I to you

Your eyes are bavarian blue
I’ve had them to come home to
every thought is passing in review
and the end as something new I’m coming to

If I don’t matter to you
why’m I scared to be cut loose
love will you calm down now
why don’t I know
it’s all borrowed, it’s on loan
some I’ve kept and some outgrown
for years our lies were a fine piece of art
now we’re world views apart
finding ourselves a new start

Just a bike ride from you
but you’re too far away to get back to
every time love is a debut
be someone to me, let me be someone to you

Morning sun and a North Sea view
I don’t know where the future leads me to
am I the one fooling you
when ending this is good for me too

If I don’t matter to you
why’m I scared to be cut loose
love will you calm down now
why don’t I know
it’s all borrowed, it’s on loan
some I’ve kept and some outgrown
for years our lives were a fine piece of art
now we’re world views apart

No road leads back to you
you were a station for passing through
time to be moving on
time to let go
and take a step into a world unknown
stop falling from stone to stone
right now my life seems ripped to the heart
I’ll assemble the parts
build myself a new start

Headspace
When no words or feelings
make sense at all
and comfort is no comfort at all
when the bombardement of your soul won’t stop

Your sensibility makes the head implode
and you need to hide away from the world
when it’s dead and dark
and hard to reach you in the cold

Then the sun burns in your eyes
and you feel life is alright
the heat comes to out win the cold
and life fills your ragged soul
when it’s time you come to me with your heart

When the scientists travel beyond this world
and you look at the shuttle launch
you would have ’em take you away if you could

Yes the human kind might be left behind
from self-inflicted wounds and crimes
stop turning away from the world today
you’re alive, but not meant to stay this way

When the sun burns in your eyes
and life catches you by surprise
all fear’s driven out of your bones
got no reason to stay at home
when it’s time you come to me with your heart

When it’s time they come for me
it’s alright, nothing was promised me
I will cross over Yangtze and go back to the stars

Old world
(instrumental)

ADAGIO (2013)

You don’t know what you’re doing
You don‘t know what you’re doing
you don’t know what you’re doing
the dreams you feel ideal are disillusions, unreal
they’re not worth the deadness you’ve been living lately

I know things aren’t alright
things just really aren’t allright
and I’ve seen it all before
and I know that the fault’s hers

You don’t know what you’re doing
You don’t know what you’re doing
The world you fear is near
it’s not all beautiful dear
your world is not like anything out here, its worse baby

I know things aren’t alright
things just really aren’t alright
and I’ve seen it all before
and I know that no fault ‘s hers

Nothing to say
Can anybody hear me call
can anybody hear me call
I’ve got nothing to say
love won’t help us now we’re screwed anyway
to sum it up

Can you hear the world’s pulse in you
a wholeness of all is in you
if you have nothing to say
please don’t waste silence saying it anyway

No one should close the door but me
no one should close the door behind me but me

All that’s inside you has been away, I see it now the good in all
all that’s inside you has been away, I see it now the good in all

There’s something very wrong
something is awfully wrong
if we have nothing to do but rape it all, unleashed and live in love consumed
forget it all

No one should close the door but me
no one should close the door behind me but me

All that’s inside you has been away, I see it now the good in all
all that’s inside you has been away, I see it now the good in all

B.T.G.T.K. no poem          
I’ve lost myself too many times
I’ll keep myself here for a while
where life is anywhere but now
and your eyes bring love around

Skin on fire
Her skin is like fire
her breath is like sleep
her home is my illusion
where it’s safe for me

Her eyes make me tumble
when she sees through me
and her love is no delusion
but a hearts treasury

And I have nowhere to stay and nothing to live for
if not the beauty of hers is all around of my world

I’m a slave to this woman
lust will never dry out
I’m her biggest consumer
in the darkest night

I love her somehow
her life flows through me
there’s no pain in motion
no treachery

And if there’s nothing to change
if nothing’s gonna change for us
In the nowhere of worlds the end is in need of her touch

Like arts are religion
her alive is a dream
there are no true conclusions
when she’s here with me

Her love is like an ocean
and the sky is all I see
don’t go anywhere
without me

Corruption
I was troubled today and nothing could release me
I had this moment, you know, where life shows you it’s happening now
I woke a little late and a look on her face was changing
I know she knew what it was, but was clever and didn’t say a thing

I have always been born to make a difference and take big decisions
but if you want someone to win you’ll have to want someone to loose
I did what I could but the enzymes changed and
insanity comes and off you walk

Mind what you do cause you wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t for us

I got lost in myself and I tried to think of what I’ve been doing
it’s getting more difficult changing the world
I wipe myself clean, today I build a shed for my treason
to me money’s no reason: only is to those who need them
I know what I’ve done, but I can’t spend time judging my wrongs
I’ll never be one you, you’re just words and numbers to me too

Mind what you do cause you wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t for us

Beauty hides in everyone
All was mine left behind time
moments became old
attempting to fall in love in it all
I leave things I haven’t told

Beauty hides in anyone
beauty hides in anyone who wears a mask

I must throw and we must throw
throw ourselves away
to be of help to anybody else
trust is all I want

Beauty hides in anyone
beauty hides in anyone who wears a mask

Time is running out before
I find time to do some more
time is running out before
I find time to do some more

No morning comes
I long for someone like you
someone to pull my heart through
the endless desert of love
you make it blossom

when passing time catches you
when passing time passes you
and passing time in your soul makes you anyone

Why won’t anyone come, why won’t anyone come back

Im gonna make it up to you
no need for it to be like this
and if I don’t learn from my love to you no morning comes as dead as this
dead as this
we both know when it’s over
I hope to get you closer now
I will be ready won’t I?
I will be ready won’t I?

My love’s an image of you
a lying dream push me through
prolific pastures of arts
you’ve made to blossom

When passing time catches you
when passing time passes you
and passing time brings your soul into the Everyone

Why won’t anyone come, why won’t anyone come back

Im gonna make it up to you
no need for it to be like this
and if I don’t learn from my love to you no morning comes as dead as this
dead as this
we both know when it’s over
I hope to get you closer now
I will be ready won’t I?
I will be ready won’t I?

Signpost
Signpost tells of more to come
in the decorating sun
jangle must commend the raw
will you make it like you’ve made it, make it like you’ve made it before?

This chair is unstable
the softness of the seat makes love kill poetry
there’s someone behind me
whatever it might be my life’s the resumé

Mr.Pamphlet buying clues
tries one old, tries one new
knows his ways of loving you
his eyes are cold, his heart is huge

Love gives trust from reasons cut
scenes performed in jungle lust
print the pain and measure blaim
this chair floats on a universal breeze
this chair floats on a universal breeze

Is someone behind me
whoever they might be, they’re my loves resumé

I left someone to love someone
I want someone to want someone
I need someone to need someone
I’ll love someone, I’ll love someone

End of the future
(Instrumental)

UNDER THE NEW MORNING SUN (2010)

Under the new morning sun
Just here to catch another morning sun
been so far from where I wanted to be beyond
I run to get closer too
the stress is if you can catch it son

there will always be someone
after you

the more I think the more it gets me
I should have helped you when it strangled you
now I prefer the moon
it leaves us where I want us to be

there will always be someone
after you

the more we change, the more I’m scared of what’s done
we brought it all out and left it in the sun
there will always be someone after you

can’t you hear the sun scream

Don’t help me up
Don’t help me up I took it too far, I wanna stay here
don’t want to be judged, isn’t it fair enough when life’s coming too near?
leave it to the judging ones, I know their truths and how they add some

I won’t leave a tear I’m driven by fear and I’ve felt too much
I’ve lost my trail, life’s got me on pro bail and and I’m loosing touch
the world embrace another son, he left his truth with his income

no one can force me
no one can force me
and when you’re happy you don’t really need me

I won’t leave a tear, I’m driven by fear and I have felt enough
I’ve lost my trail, life’s sent me on pro bail and I’m loosing touch
the world reflects before the sun, it seeks for truths when there are none

anyone can do this to anyone
no one can force me
no one can force me
and when you’re happy you don’t really need me

Cutting your fucking heart out
(Instrumental)

I’ll take you away
I’ll take you away from the country now that you are ready to
leave our pasts to see who we might be years from now and how
we look for the same things where triangles fall from the sky
is a place to stay, is a place to stay

I won’t sleep anymore like before, when with you I don’t have to
just a place to stay would be okay, if you do want me too
till it’s over, till it’s over
by time we choose to, we’ve had enough
I loose you when we talk

I´ll take you away from the country now that you have lost it too

While the bombs fell from the bluest sky
Today went away like another
I chilled in the sun and a nap brought me beyond
while the fathers went away to save their sons
today went away like another

Life is up to you
Why do things not always seem to get better
she changes her colors to one
I give up, I give up, again and again
and loose her completely
do we either loose ourselves or get fatter?
do decisions emerge from the heart?
in and out of a cloud
love is the big one and I lost it completely

why don’t you know what to do when it’s up to you?

we could be better if we stayed together
but we had make everything wrong
sigh tomorrow again and miss her completely
good, goodbye

Love will again disappear
Scary beasts are everywhere
bring your fate and cut your share
all your lies make a masterpiece
a world so endless sinister

I tossed my waste into orbit here
love will again might disappear
I asked the question if she wanted to stay

Of the few with unsheltered opinions
priests in bars break their knees repenting
you ask me which part of you I like the most
I like it all baby, I like it all baby

She’s a bat in a dark cave, she looks so good it almost scares me
with her smile went everything from dead bone to happily within
supposed to mean something

I will be another one, left and robbed my heart through beauty’s loins
but I’ll risk that before I’m dead and gone

Of the few with unsheltered opinions
priests in bars break their knees repenting
you ask me which part of you I like the most
I like it all baby, I only want you baby

Astronomers of the heart
I’d search through anything for anything to end somewhere
drink clouds through a sun ray with my eyes in the sun elsewhere
two places at once is more than I should try to hide behind in my mind

I’d go through anything for anything to end somewhere
read ‘Heartaches and Pleasures’ by old french professors’ young au pair
“nous sommes tous à la recherche du temps perdu cacher” somewhere behind

Scott’s singing “Angels of Ashes” we’re sharing that moment
a piano of souls play out our unmet goals time- and formless
I greet the sound of the world, when it blows through my forehead

The world falls into a deep sleep
(Instrumental)
