Track Name: Silent City
Silent City

i sneak through the city / the silent city / when you’re not here / walk with the dead / sometimes they follow the route i make / i paint a heart on a wall / a concrete wall / where you would pass by and see: i was here / i walk on and on / i’ll make my way / i miss your smile / i walk through the city / the dark city / no one passes by / in the gloomy hours of the morning / i look for life / behind the walls and the clouded windows / everywhere i strive / there’s no one in there / or maybe they are sleeping / i choose to leave some stains / nice remains of what i thought / walking with no one around / later they would look out and see: someone was here / high afloat we breast the waves / all in our own boats / we built before the tide came in / and at life’s bus stops we are waiting / we are patient / but then in panic like the hunted deer / trying to keep our heads on / when there’s no time for waiting / we’ll start running / as we’ve held on for too long / there’s no transfer today / to carry me away / carry me away
Track Name: Hunt
Hunt

now you’re on a hunt again / you're gonna hunt us all down / gonna give as good as you got / an eye for an eye / but there’s this blind spot / have you ever faced the light / instead of cursing the night / when you’re no more than reaction / ever thought about changing your rites? / watch out / as the rays you shoot forth / could come back around / watch out / have you ever tried to grow up / instead of growing dim / is that your own expression / or the devil within? / soon you'll be on the run / and you’re gonna run it all down / still you give as much as you got / but you forgot your blind spot / (gonna hunt us all down)
Track Name: XI
XI

Oh! what a beautiful cross you bear / i heard you found it for free somewhere / and if i wasn’t so drowned out / by the voices in your head / then you’d be hearing me / speaking out the unsaid / Oh! What a nice place in the shade / what a nice place to invade / if only you could move closer / if only you weren’t already there / you’d be waking up instead / if you hadn’t fallen so fast / you’d still be no angel / and if you hadn’t fallen so hard / you’d still wear no halo
Track Name: Eternal Warfare
Eternal Warfare

what’d be your distinctive feature? / if there were no moments before / only moments ahead / i wonder what is yours to give / and mine / to live / a life of love
Track Name: Im Dämonengarten
Im Dämonengarten

it must be / something that i did / that brought me here / and where am i? / and what is this? / creeping up my spine / It must be / something that i did / or some force field / sucking me in /
i only wanted more and more and life was slipping through my fingers / it only slipped through my fingers / the girls and boys come out at night / they hold each other tight / but their kiss and speech are poisonous / they’ll summon up a fight / oh, look how they hold each other tight / but will they make it through the night? / it must be / something that i did / or some force field / sucking me in / I only wanted more and more and life was slipping through my fingers / it only slipped through my fingers / well i’d rather take the long road / the winding road / than go with you people / you estrange me / i’d rather walk with the animals / in the forests / than with you people / you estrange me so / i prefer the sideways or the open fields / to another step with you people / you estrange me so / with all your road signs / and the traffic lights / and the drive by shootings / and the ...
Track Name: Not A Film Theme
Not A Film Theme

what remains / is a cat’s cry / and that drawing of you neglecting me / what have i done? / too much? / or were we too tight? / or are you too weak to fight? / then what remains / is a cat’s cry / and a drawing of you / what have i done? / and you?
Track Name: Who Will Bother
Who Will Bother

who will bother? / if not me and not you / who will save our kind? / will we be safe for good? / and who decided that hugging trees is out of fashion now? / how well i remember / what i’ve not seen / candles burning / yesterday is too / may the bird you fly on / carry you home well / i’m still shining for you / hoping the light will get through
Track Name: Implode
Implode

at the bottom of this heart / lies a black dog / he’s there with the colours and the scenes that have never been / and when it seems reasonable / then he go and jump all over the rocks / over the rocks that you placed / the rocks with no tongues / then you’ll see everything / could come back around / at the bottom of this house / lies big ache / all the strangers staring / looking for what they’ll never see / for some relief on their own / heavy curtains open for the show that can make you forget / that the sting in it is in you now / at times it will come back around
Track Name: Lab Rats, Escape!
Lab Rats, Escape!

from the day i was born / i’m a puppet in your hands / and everytime i died / those hands got dirty too / what a life i must live / but soon i’ll bite the hands that fed me / lab rats, escape! / what a lie i must live / but soon i’ll bite the hand that fed me
Track Name: The Scientist's Monologue
The Scientist’s Monologue

i can see you / i’ve no time to watch you play / i can hear you / i’ve no time to understand / could search for you / there’s no time to find you / could love you / i’ve never learned to share / the blood of my heart / so wash it away / the blood on my hands / wash it away / from my cold cold hands / my heart of stone / the blood on my hands wash it away / wash it away
Track Name: Black Pyramid
