Track Name: Black Ocean Girls
Black Ocean Girls

Countless days are passing by
snow white girls rot in daylight
when will their corpses rise again
tonight, tonight, tonight

pale fires on their tongues
radiant colours make them look like candy
never ever get to close
they lie, they lie, they lie

you don't want to know
they hurt themselves
so badly
and what they once were
is forever lost
their inner oceans
turned black

countless nights are passing by
they despise all tomorrows
in the void they shine like stars
so bright, so bright, so bright

what would their mothers feel
if they could see their dark ways
and all the others who feed on them
again and again and again

they don't want to know
all the love they gave
for nothing
and what they once knew
is forever lost
like tears
in the rain
Track Name: Robber
Robber

And I have to find a new toy
to set myself on fire
now it's time to howl at the moon again

and I take what I require
and leave the rest behind
wait til I see the white of their eyes

their homes, their lives
there is no difference to me
oh, you are so unique
your words, your thoughts
I've heard them all before
tell your friends goodbye

what you've kept so secret
soon will be mine
I accept your altruistic gift

and I take you out tonight
to set myself on fire
wait til I see the white of your eyes

their homes, their lives
there is no difference to me
oh, you are so unique
your words, your thoughts
I've heard them all before
tell your friends goodbye

and I take you out tonight
make you like what you see
can you taste the chalk when we kiss

your hopes let you fall over
right into my arms
and at last I can fuck your soul
and I can tear your heart apart
and at last I can fuck your soul
and I can tear your heart apart

because we will be
just best friends forever
because we will be
just best friends forever
Track Name: Neon Deserts
Neon Deserts

I breathe fire and I eat glass
I forget what surrounds me
til the lights are turned on
I take whatever I can find
and whoever wants to go

will you hold me tight,
I'll do anything, I'll do anything for you
please, please make me feel
dear god make it last
you take everything, I take everything
we both know all things must pass

and in the end
I am one of a million
oh these highs while we all stand in line
we can scent
this great desert within you
well, show me yours and I show you mine

I fill my eyes with sand
my limbs twitch in the limelight
til the final curtain falls
I take whatever I can find
and whoever wants to go

will you hold me tight
I'll do anything, I'll do anything
at least - we are not alone tonight
look around, do you see
all the other girls, all the other guys
we both know we are all the same

and in the end
we always choose wisely
so we can forget just for a little while
we can feel it
there are these deserts within us
few hearts were lost on their burning sand
Track Name: Italy
Italy

We will come again
but we must leave now
the ugly and dead, they call our names

Italian nights
it rained gold and silver
we were gods
made of air and light

days of grace
blue skies forever
almost forgave us our average lives

car ride in the dark
are we carried in triumph
ardent admirers line the streets

we bathed in the sunlight
and dreamt of burning flesh
and dying worlds
we drank cheap champagne
their cries made us dance

we dozed on our air beds
and strolled through ashen fields
and moss-grown ruins
we sank on our knees
their remains made us smile

we will come again
but we must wait now
the ugly and dead, they feed on our lives

no ballroom days
we trade our bodies
we are beds for old, old men

nothing keeps them away
our wounds are holy
will you ever end our pain

oh long night of sighs,
we are so tired, it is time.
oh long night of sighs,
they all have to pay

oh long night of sighs,
we are so tired , it is time.
oh long night of sighs,
they all have to pay
Track Name: Drum Major
Drum Major

Red hair
tender scent of cinnamon
golden teeth
tongue made of fur

pink frost
silhouette, seduce the girl
she belongs
to a hard working man

at court he talks in reckless haste
he glows and sends out rays
he is of great importance
boy of night in breakneck pace
wins her over, takes
a bath in thousand faces

our hearts
deceitful above things
right words
perforate her skin

flesh grows
where the old was torn
pink scars
never forget

at court she talks in reckless haste
she glows and sends out rays
she is of great importance
girl of night in breakneck pace
wins us over, takes
a bath in thousand faces
Track Name: Love Is a Grave
Love Is a Grave

Today I failed
again they did me
wrong, I am a wonder

saw loud places
drinking, waiting, blinking
and talking to no one

I've been waiting such a long, long time
I'm so tired
I could sleep for years

lead me to your fields of gold
in your hands
I lay my heart to rest

going out again
same old madness
an urban tristesse

dark, loud places
drinking waiting, blinking
and talking to anyone

don't believe a single word you say
take what you want
even if it hurts

bury me in your slender arms
will you paint me red
love is a grave
Track Name: Prose of Circumstances
Prose of Circumstances

You hear her words
but you can't relate to
kiss her cheek
and watch TV

remember the times
when you felt what she felt
well, it's sad
they are over now

it's really dark
closely she sleeps beside you
her snoring makes you smile
remember the times
when you wanted to fuck her
are they forever gone

don't you want
to be in love
don't you want
to feel true love
don't you want
something to die for
right the wrong
free a sacred heart

after work
you don't want to go home
so you sit outside and wait
remember the times
when everything went wrong
she was the only friend you had

don't you want
to be in love
don't you want
to feel true love
don't you want
something to die for
right the wrong
free a sacred heart

while she sleeps
you hope, she stops breathing
dreaming of her funeral makes you cry
brushing your teeth, you foresee your tomorrow
there is no you, there is only we

her love
will save you
til your very end

her arms
will shield you
and she wants nothing back

never let her go

you'll suck
her dry
til her very end
Track Name: Empress
Empress

Know me
and adore me
a candid face
in a golden haze
 
I'm an empress
I weep under stars
imaginery guards
keep watch and ward

at the gates of slumber
I live in dreams
half-awake I fear the thunder
grey hands
dig in my golden curls
dark matters gather
I act and they command

know me
and adore me
shiny pearls
drip from my lips

white light
carry me away
what they've done
makes me stay

at the gates of slumber
I live in dreams
half-awake I feel their hunger
grey hands
they cut my cheeks
skulls purr
we're the empire of need

I am the world's forgotten toy
this is my crown
I'm on my own

I am the world's forgotten toy
this is my crown
I'm on my own
Track Name: Age of the Fish
Age of the Fish

Climb mountains so high
cross rivers so deep
together
full of heroic deeds
and hymns
that will be forever sung

we share our sleeping bags
and everything we have
tomorrow
full of heroic deeds
and damsels in distress

soon enough
our kisses will be bites
pain is then delight
in temples of love

our hands will always be fists
our love will be rape
we will be full of hate

we are children of our time
we dance with the dead
together
we will turn you inside out
and devour you from head to toe

soon enough
our kisses will be bites
pain is then delight
in temples of love

our hands will always be fists
our love will be rape
we will be full of hate
Track Name: The Elder
The Elder

One on one
together
forever

skin on skin
closer we can't get

down below
eternal
hideout

frozen in time
we hate side by side

on a sunny day
in the ides of may
little children play
where we lay
we can hear their laughs
coming from above
we envy their youth
and games

skull on skull
abandoned
forgotten

bone on bone
as honest we can be

teeth and nails
lidless
and loveless

we pull them down
and teach them to obey

on a summer eve
in the light of dawn
men and women moan
where we grieve
we can feel their love
coming from above
we envy their youth
and prey
