Track Name: girl
girl

she is the only girl
a beautyqueen of a hypersensitive
makebelieve world
my only connection to sweetest perfection

i don’t know why
she is in my hands
i don’t know if
she is actually here

but with her i’m so foolish it hurts

she is the only girl
a goddess of colours that twinkles and glows as they
make my world twirl
my only acquintance with infatuation

i don’t know how
i brought her here
i don’t know if
she actually exists

but for her i keep lying to myself
Track Name: embrace
embrace

please put your arms around me
and let me feel your warmth
no words to steal the moment
your touch will soothe my soul
all i need is a moment of silence
where the monsters go away
where i rip off the mask that i’m wearing
and you like me anyway

please keep your arms around me
and let the hours pass
make my black perverted heart
believe that it will last
let your hair that veils my face
lead my thoughts astray
let your breath like a deathless spell
wash it all away
Track Name: plasticman
plasticman

she had a dream last night
the plasticman was dancing
solitarily on an isolated beach
his dead eyes staring sensually
... desperately

and i know it sounds demented
but it makes my heart crumble
i bend down and cry
she had a dream last night
we left the church early
involuntarily she pushed me over the edge
the stalagmites closing in fast
... killing me

and i know it sounds irrational
but it makes me terrified
i shiver and shake
she opened her eyes last night
desperately wanting to know
that non of this was real
... calling me

and i know it sounds foolish
but i can’t tell her anything
my throat is impeded by terror
Track Name: mask
mask

it’s so hard to do what you don’t want to do
it’s so hard to be what isn’t really you
to put on your mask everyday
to hide the pain so far away
not to let anyone see what is hidden behind
to keep the fragile mask
not to let anyone find
what is hidden behind your mask
oh do not ask
don’t look right through me
don’t see who i am
don’t see what i am

oh happiness will you be my ... no
go away
i don’t want to fool anyone
i just want to be alone
but if you saw me you’d be paralysed
you’d frightened
‘cause i look bad
you’d be scared
and you’d run away
Track Name: rain
rain

dogged faces
pass like shadows on the street
black and wicked weather
casts a spell on me
rain comes floating down every climb
i’m wasting my money
wasting my time
trying to find you
somewhere out in the rain
in the pouring rain

and i hope i can find you
hope you can find me
hope i can find you
hope you can find me
find our place in the rain
in the rain
in the rain

your voice is haunting me
a surreal chorus in my head
my hair is soaking
silver thread
rain is blending with sweat on my cheek
sliding down from me
unto the street
forming an image of you
as i walk through the rain
through the pouring rain
(i bow down to kiss the street)

and i hope i can find you
hope you can find me
hope i can find you
hope you can find me
find our place in the rain
in the rain
in the rain
in the pouring rain

it can’t rain forever
Track Name: trainspotting
trainspotting

he was standing frozen
in the middle of the railway tracks
told her ‘bout the train approaching fast
she had to help him get away
without, his feet would disobey
but she only smiled and turned away

and the train keeps driving on
and he can’t move on
this is how it ends

so he swirls his arms around
as the whistle sounds
this is how it ends

she leaves him standing there
and heads on home to prepare alone
a railway accident of her own
he got run down this very day
and neither she will get away
but she wouldn’t want to anyway

so the train keeps driving on
and she won’t get gone
this is how it ends

she will put her thumb in her mouth
as the whistle sounds
this is how it ends

this is how it all ends ...
Track Name: impediments
impediments

stop ...
stop this

poke out my eyes
that i may no longer see
and admire you

tear off my ears
that i may no longer hear
how wonderful your voice is

cut off my hands
that i may no longer feel
your soft and smooth skin

slit up my tongue
that i may no longer taste
your underground springs

punch in my nose
that i may no longer smell
your flowering odours

destroy my brain
that i may no longer think
of all this good and evil

do anything
do anything you want
just stop this
maledicted love
Track Name: at the edge
at the edge

i am lying at the dizzy edge
so high above the ground
eternal darkness patiently
awaits if i go down
at my side the summer flowers
are just a breath away
i only need to wish me there
but it’s just too simple to be easy

for a moment everything is still
not a sound is in the air
the darkness from the void below
returns my enchanted stare
and as i turn around and start
my neverending fall
a voice is whispering in my ear
it was just too simple to be easy
