Lyrics

1. TRIBUTE TO THE PAST

[muzax: Hansen/Rubach]
[lyrix: Hansen]

He had found a way to leave, to somewhere far from now
Travelling in his time machine a dream that had come true
Fly my friend, you will see, something called reality
I feel good, I'm alright, doing what I please - I travel time

Far beyond the rising sun I ride the winds of fate
Prepared to go where my heart belongs - back to past again

I just want to save the universe for all mankind
He wants to save the future of the Earth
Step by step surroundings change as years go passing by
He only stops to gaze a little while
I push the button further on, I just can't get enough
I know I will return again but still I'm movin' on

Far beyond the rising sun...

As I'm movin' on I see things to come, I see tears and I hear laughter
Curiosity, comin' over me, what is next and what will happen
And I see the lies and I hear the cries and the marchin' of the people
As they go to war, Heaven knows what for - God I think I've had enough now

Too late, too late - I can't go back no more! I lost control of the engine
No light, no light - can't see where I have gone! Can't see where I have now gone to
Where am I now - stranded in time

[Solo Kai]

So many years have passed since I had gone and I have seen what's gonna be
But now I know it is useless to travel on
And I will return to the time and place I belong to

Far beyond the rising sun....[repeat]


2. NO RETURN

[muzax+lyrix: Hansen]

I'm riding the wind, don't need your request
You'd never invite me but I will be your guest

Oh, no, no, don't be afraid of the Reaper
It's time to go I call your name and you follow
Fly with me

Take a look around and say you love me,
And I will guide you through the Golden Door
For everything you see there is a reason
The big wheel is turning like always before

There is no return from the other side of Heaven
For the big wheel turns and the circle must go on
Forever more

How do you like the Termination day? - So far -
Kiss me good bye, cause I must fade away

Oh, no, no, don't be afraid of your Master
It's time to go he's calling your name now you follow
Fly away

Take a look around...

There is no return...

[Solo Kai]

Welcome to eternal life, my friend
Now take your seat on your cloud
Enjoy your stay
But always remember
There is no return

There is no return...

There is no return...

No return, no return
From the other side of Heaven


3. LAST BEFORE THE STORM

[muzax+lyrix: Hansen]

Who's controlling all the misery and pain
When the error signs are lighted in the Masterhall
And from the start the action is in vain
Cause the Beast is always careful to avoid the fall

We crawl up to the skies we'll never return again

We're the last before the storm
Watching the sun going down on us
We wish we had never been born
To be the last before the storm

Who's ever gonna change the world
I don't understand what we are fighting for
The truth is sad, no lying, we are cursed
I don't really know who ever made the Law

We cry out for more, we wonder what's next to the world
We settle the score, we never look back

We're the last before the storm...

Cry out for the people who don't know the world
They don't understand what they say and they're cursed
Lying for reasons in search for the truth

Mephisto - we comin' down [repeat]

[Solo Dirk/Kai/Melody both]

We cry out for more...

We're the last before the storm...


4. CAVE PRINCIPLE

[muzax+lyrix: Hansen]

I crawl across the floor never see the light
Only shadows on the wall
Somebody said there's reality behind
But I'm afraid to turn and fall - oh no

Set me free - for eternity

And now they talk about my destiny again
I hear their footsteps in the dark
But then again there was the silence and the pain
Uh, Lord that made me feel so lost

Help me - get out of here
Save me - my world's an illusion

[Bass - solo/Kai/Dirk/Kai/Dirk]

I'm still inside the cave imprisoned in my mind
And silhouettes on the wall
I have to turn around to see what's goin' on
Cause what I saw was never all

Just a move is the solution
It's not enough to stand and stare
Leave the cave and find a reason
For the cross you have to bear

Never return to the principle


5. FUTURE MADHOUSE

[muzax: Hansen]
[lyrix: Hansen/Scheepers]

In the morning you try to recover
But you still got the red in your eyes
Then you get up and look in the mirror
And you see the beast arise

Got a big red nose from the overdose
And somebody else's eyes
And you think to thee is it really me
And you have to realiaze

The price that you pay for a moment like this
Is never too high cause you're still doing it
Don't you know that we all stand in line
Our future dreams are just a waste of time

Our future - is a madhouse and we all are movin' in
Our world - needs some action cause there's nothing left to gain

Take your baggy things are ready
You only need to come
Join this century's schizoid clan
The rooms are primed and done

The price that you pay for a moment like this
Is never too high cause it perfectly fits
Don't you think that you are wasting time
Insanity is just a state of mind

Our future - is a madhouse...

[Solo Kai/Dirk/Kai]

Our world - is a madhouse, in the gutter, come on in
Our world - needs some action, satisfaction till the end
Our world - we need sex and crime to supply our minds
An amazing time, come on in
Our world - and we party on till our life is done
Just to waste on time - till the end


6. GAMMA RAY

[muzax+lyrix: Frenzel(?) /who da hell is dat???/]
[rewritten+arranged by Gamma Ray]

The world's desperated with irony,hunger and corruption
The eastern and the africans too
Are going to repeat the history of all wars
And our industry supplied them with arms
Everybody knows but nobody can do anything against it
The fall of society is on the make

Well sometimes, sometimes I try to drop a list
I try to find out what they have done
I thought of honourable murderers you know
Like Jonah's hand might /???/ around us

And anytime, everywhere in the whole world
Gamma Ray, Gamma Ray, Gamma, Gamma, Gamma Ray
Made of your existence Gamma Ray money and our failing
I've waited for - to find Gamma Ray

Without a body I could fly around the world
Destroying arms, destroying rockets
Mix all complexions of the whole human race
We all would turn to shadow people

Everybody, everywhere in the whole world
Gamma Ray, Gamma Ray...

[Solo Kai]

Everybody, everywhere in the whole world
Gamma Ray, Gamma Ray...


7. INSANITY AND GENIUS

[muzax: Rubach]
[lyrix: Nack]

Therefore I'm laying down in laughter
Mighty, the mightiest life hereafter
The trip we started hasn't finished here
And while we think there's not a shade of fear

Black points jump in crossing lines
Insanity and genius
Both two sides are what I find
And I know they're mine

Sometimes my womb bears an actor
Your mind - creating tragic factors
You've got knowledge - stolen from the sea
You've got wisdom - just stolen knowledge

Black points jump in crossing lines
Insanity's not far behind the genius inside

Close before - insanity and genius [repeat]

[Solo Dirk]

And everyday a dreamer dies
To see what's on the other side
And everyday more dreamers die, my friend
While black points jump in crossing lines again

Companions in approaching time insanity and genius
Good old friends in common life insanity and genius

Close before - insanity and genius [repeat]


8. 18 YEARS

[muzax: Scheepers/Schlachter]
[lyrix: Scheepers]

Are you still satisfied with the situation
That you've had for many years now?
Time is movin' on your childhood it's gone
But you don't realize that the game isn't won
Blind you think that you're safe at home
But the fall is near if you carry on

18 years of freedom - where have they gone?
Try to understand - you must search to take and give
Before you're old - you must learn to live your life before you're old

Break out the change is drawing near
Decisions to stop, to think and stare
Solutions my thoughts are getting clear,
I'm leaving and I no longer care

Spread my wings and fly among the clouds
I feel so free, I left the world behind
Now I know what I have missed
I'll never give it back, my life's just begun

Throw it all away, I'm never gonna be the same again
[repeat 4 times]
Throw it all away, throw it all away
I'm not gonna be the same again


9. YOUR TORN IS OVER

[muzax+lyrix+vocals: Schlachter]

We're coming closer to the final phase
You better do what you can
No you won't stand the chance to win the race
You better leave cause I'm the man
I know you think you nearly got it made

I think you live in a daydream
There's no way out

I'm gonna give you a nightmare
You get a lesson that you never forget

Your torn is over [repeat 4 times]

[hey wow!!!! it seems that they changed the whole bridge here!!! here is what they really sing and following is what's written in the booklet:]

[Think I better keep an eye on you]
[On every move that you make]
[Cause you are motherf**king liar , uuuh]
[Well, everybody knows you're fake]
[And I don't give a sh*t on what you say]

Think I better keep an eye on you
Cause you're a liar that's what they tell
There's nothing in the world that you can do
I'm gonna take you down to hell
And I don't care just what you do or say

You find yourself in a dead end, there's no way out
Poor pityful bastard, your torn is over
And I'm finished with you
(Poor pityful you, you get a lesson that you never forget)

Your torn is over [repeat 4 times]

[Solo Dirk]

I'm feeling free - you can't stop me
You can't hold me - I'm so restless
So you think you can escape your fate
Tell me sucker it's too late
See I know you gonna make my day

So you think you can save your life, if we all gonna work for you
(but you gonna get it screwed)
Better look at your size, you're nothing more than little poo
It doesn't matter what you do, I know I'm comin' over you
(say, it doesn't matter anyway)
You haven't got a single clue
Your torn is over and I'm finished with you

Your torn is over [repeat 8 times]


10. HEAL ME

[muzax: Schlachter]
[lyrix: Hansen/Schlachter]
[vocals:Hansen]

When I wake up at the end of the day
Moon comes out sun fades away
I get myself out of my bed and cry
Is it really me now - could this be the real thing
Is there someone else to ease the pain
So easy, so easy now, has it really gone too far

It don't matter anyhow, sometimes I feel like an
Echo in the wind, that's not coming back again

I look inside my head and what I see
Are the reflections of the world
And I see genius and insanity

You're alive - you're part of the show
You came to foresee the signs on the wall

So many tried in vain - they know the truth
Learn - how to live and fight and learn -
How to fight them right and learn - how to give and take it all

You can be strong if you know who you are
The signs on the wall tell you move on before it's too late

Can you see them, do you wanna be the one who's creeping on the floor?
Could it be forever? Could it all be lies?
The chaos is a killer and he knows who will fall

Help me - I need some help
Now is there someone out there
What are you waiting for?
You're on the road to nowhere
The only way I know

Maybe I'm wrong, I haven't got a clue
Don't know where I belong - tell me what is true

Oh won't you come to heal me - heal me [repeat 4 times]

[Here comes the "undocumented piece"..they talk for a while something about well....God, afterlife, Truth - is all that real and such sort of thing]

Think - don't think - what can you see
Our life is just a fantasy of someone we will never see
Therefore I break down in laughter
Now as I change my point of view
There's nothing left to make me blue - never again - no more
Come on in my friend and join the ball
Everything is beatiful - even the band - it's magic
Imagine you're superstar you gonna fly
You gonna go far - far, so far

[Solo Dirk]

Oh won't you come to heal me - heal me [repeat 4 times]


11. BROTHERS

[muzax: Schlachter/Scheepers/Hansen]
[lyrix: Scheepers/Hansen]

My life, not yours
Is that alright no fight
I don't wanna quit it
No, way is that okay
Now don't you dare, don't you dare
To touch it with your fingers
You sneak around, pull me down
Gimme no, gimme no, gimme no more bullshit
I know there's something goin' on
You better leave my life alone
You gotta take it as a matter of fact now step aside

We are brothers in rock, we won't let go
We got our music and we got our soul
And with sisters in rock we can change the world
If we try

Cool down, now move around
Someday, maybe you will understand it
My way, okay feels so good, feels so good
To be with all my good friends
Don't you realize you talk too much
I got an easy way of life, don't touch
You gotta take it as a matter of fact now step aside

In the concrete jungle we play rock'n'roll
To set us free, to loose control
In the concrete jungle we can break the walls
That hold us down and keep us small
