  • The Day After

    What if it’s not
    If it’s not meant to be
    What if someone
    Has made a mistake

    What we’ve become
    There’s no turning back
    Maybe it’s time
    To say that out loud

    Question marks are falling down
    Crushing underneath our memories
    As we stand and look around
    The world that remained

    On the walls we paint our dreams
    Hiding in the fallout shelters
    While The Gardens of Eden
    Are burning above

    What if it’s not
    If it’s not meant to be
    What if someone
    Has made a mistake

    What we’ve become
    There’s no turning back
    Maybe it’s time
    To say that out loud

  • Acid Rain

    Part I. Where Are We Now?

    I’m your lie
    I am your pretending
    I’m the cause
    of your shame and anger

    I’m your crime
    Swept under the carpet
    Your vanity
    With all consequences

    Living a distorted day
    Distorted life
    In an uncertain place without the sun
    Where are we now?

    Living in a fallen land
    With fallen minds
    In an uncertain place without the sun
    Where are we now?
    What have we done?

    I’m your sloth
    I am your aversion
    Intolerance
    I’m your private wasteland

    Living a distorted day
    Distorted life
    In an uncertain place without the sun
    Where are we now?

    Living in a fallen land
    With fallen minds
    In an uncertain place without the sun
    Where are we now?

    Living a distorted day
    Distorted life
    In an uncertain place without the sun

    Where are we now?
    What have we done?
    Where are we now?
    Who have we become?

    Part II. Dancing Ghosts

    We’ve been waiting for brighter days
    How could we’ve known we were happy?

    Dancing ghosts
    Singing ghosts

    Where are we now?

    Dancing ghosts
    Singing ghosts

  • Vale of Tears

    Shake me down
    I’ll make a noise
    Tap my hand
    I’ll make you smile
    Give me hope
    Then take away

    Like you did the last time
    Like the last time
    Like the last time

    Tell me who I have to be
    Cross my head, lips and heart
    Make me get down on my knees

    Like you did the last time
    Like the last time
    Like the last time

    Wading through the desert
    I am wading through the desert
    To the promised land
    You burned to the ground

    Wading through the desert
    I am wading through the desert
    To the promised land
    You burned to the ground

    Take me to the highest hill
    Show the fireworks display
    Tell me it’s for my own good

    Like you did the last time
    Like the last time
    Like the last time

    Turn poetry into prose
    Then launch a crusade
    Make another vale of tears

    Like you did the last time
    Like the last time
    Like the last time

    Wading through the desert
    I am wading through the desert
    To the promised land
    You burned to the ground

    Wading through the desert
    I am wading through the desert
    To the promised land
    You burned to the ground

  • Guardian Angel

    Listen now
    The wind is dying down
    I can no longer hear
    their wailing
    and their cries

    The shooting stopped a while ago
    Not sure who has survived
    They used to be friends
    And now they simply wiped each other out

    The others took their place
    Got a second chance
    To get through the night

    Tell me now
    What’s right
    What is wrong
    Where’s the line between fear
    And total callousness

    My heart’s beating too fast
    I’m trying to catch
    Echoes of morality
    Maybe there’s a chance to expiate my sins
    Turn around
    And start again

    There’s nowhere to escape
    But I have the key
    I know the road

    So I will take you there
    Look after you
    And save us both

  • Lament

    Where have you wandered,
    My only child
    Why are you not coming back?
    Your mother is crying her eyes out
    And I
    In my dreams
    Hear your voice

    „Father, will you take me away
    Father will you take and save me from my fate”

    „Father, will you take me away
    Father will you take and save me from my fate”

    Wanted to go
    Look for you
    A hundred times
    But I couldn’t leave her alone

    The end of the world
    Ruined our home
    Yet didn’t destroy our hope

    Acid Rain is pouring down
    On the caravans of shadows
    Once they used to be humans
    Dying of too much choice

    Devoid of trust and empathy
    Alone
    They were passing each other
    Now, together,
    With raised hands
    In tears
    They call out at the sky

    „Father, will you take me away
    Father will you take and save me from my fate”

    „Father, will you take me away
    Father will you take and save me from my fate”

  • The Struggle For Survival

    Part I. Dystopia

    Part II. Battle Royale

  • River Down Below

    I.

    I’d like to tell you
    What I dream about
    I’d like to say
    How much I miss you
    But

    I say sorry
    So come, my darling
    Come to me
    I’m sorry
    I’m dying on the tree

    I’d like to tell you
    That it’s not too late
    I’d like to say
    That I won with myself

    But I say sorry
    So come, my darling
    Come to me
    Sorry,
    I’m dying on the tree
    With the world beneath my feet

    II.

    So you found me after all
    Pile the rocks
    The two nailed boards

    Linger beside me
    You’re all I have left
    Tell me the story of your life

    There’s so much that
    I have got to find out
    Until the next darkness arrives

    I do not have too many requirements
    Only one wish
    Before you go
    And before I crumble back into the dust

    Take me to the river down below
    Take me to the river down below
    Stay
    Sit down
    And get some rest
    Since you came across my place

    Linger beside me
    You’re all I have left
    Tell me the story of your life

    There’s so much that
    I have got to find out
    Until the next darkness arrives

    I do not have too many requirements
    Only one wish
    Before you go
    And before I crumble back into the dust

    Take me to the river down below
    Take me to the river down below

    And before I crumble back into the dust...
    And before I crumble back into the dust...

  • Wasteland

    Wait in silence
    Until the stars go dark
    My companion
    With your cracked, withered heart

    That day is coming
    I know that you’re calling on me
    That day is coming
    I know that you’re calling on me
    I don’t want you to make me wait too long
    It’s time to get on the road

    Half dead colours
    Residues of my soul
    Caught by the wind
    Hunting
    Thirsty for love

    That day is coming
    I know that you’re calling on me
    That day is coming
    I know that you’re calling on me
    I don’t want you to make me wait too long
    It’s time to get on the road

  • The Night Before

    Close your eyes
    Don’t be afraid
    I’m with you
    This place is safe
    We found a camp
    We have supplies
    They will let us stay the night

    Close your eyes
    I’ll tuck you in
    Mum will sing to make you sleep
    Don’t mind the noise
    There’re just the bombs
    A part of music for this song

    When the night begins to fall
    You and I
    In a safety zone
    The former world shall not return
    But we’ll survive intact
    Again
