Lyrics

1. ESTRANGED

No need
To talk
You cut me off and pull away
The heat is freezing again
It tears out my heart

Disguise
Pretend
Break down the whole fantasy
The distance remains, everlasting
It leaves me wondering

Why do you change this fast
It's not fair

Feel again
That's what we've missed
The whole time
Misplaced love remains, everlasting
It leaves me wondering

Why do you change this fast

It's not fair


2. ASHES

Into the heat
Swallowed into that hole
Melted down

[Chorus:]
Burned to ashes
And the ashes flew
In the wind
Taken by breath
As I breathe on

Shadows in my head
When I'm too high to think
Give me my view

[Chorus]

Ease my whirlwind
You thought so
These aren't your concerns
They're ours
This is not what we wanted in the first place
But it's ok
After all
It's been called
The fate of a dreamer

[Chorus]

Loved by only you
It is all I allow
It has been called
The fate of a dreamer


3. HIGH

Fade out the candlelight
Look at the shadows on the walls
Just follow your heart
You've waited long enough

Don't turn me down and say you won't
Cause then you'd lie to me
And no, you cannot lie to me
I would see

[Chorus:]
And now I know it is time to possess your mind, whole
And now I know it is time to give away what I saved

I've got the feeling that it will be this time
I've got the feeling that it won't be right, won't be wrong
I've got the feeling you're arousing my senses
I've got the feeling that I have to feel, have to feel

[Chorus]

And you will take me, high, so high
And you will take me, high, so high
So high
So high
High
High


4. COLD METAL

Lying on my back on a railway

Looking at the sky and its full moon
In the back of my head I feel the rumbling wheels
Shaking my memories
It's getting darker and darker and darker
My hands are frozen and steam comes out of my mouth
As I whisper my last words
Seem to fade away

[Chorus:]
The train is moving forward and closer
Can't stand up and walk away
Once I made my mind up so long ago
Now I can't change
It is just too bad

I feel so left alone, so forgotten
Nobody knows where I am, no one misses me
Cold water runs from my eyes
And the cold is freezing my last tears
Like I'm only half in my body, I can't feel
I think I'm already half gone, I can't think
It's getting colder and colder and colder
I can't breathe

[Chorus]

Cold metal, burning in my back
Cold cold metal, freezing
Cold cold metal, my head will burst open
Cold cold metal, it's been too much


5. FATE

[Instrumental]


6. SICK CEREMONY

Their little girl said
Don't tell me how you feel
You don't understand
She painted the people
She disgusted on her way down
All there is left now
Is a picture of them
With their faces on it, and it's my fault

[Chorus:]
Black roses
As black as her hair
White sheets
As pale as her face

She crossed her fingers
And apologized to them
Then she flew off
Into the stream
Went to the light
Which faded meanwhile
Into the scratches on her cheeks
And her raining soul

[Chorus]

Red blood
As red as her lips
Oh believe me
I loved her too much


7. LOST MESSAGE

All day long I sit by the riverside
Watching the sunrise and the colors it brings
Here I can sing, 'cos there's no one around
Some birds fly above me, flying so free

Remember an angel as she sat beside me
Here by the riverside
I looked into her big blue eyes and loved her like rain
Then she flew away like the bird she was before

I saw her flying into the sunset
As the sky turned to black and she faded from view
Next morning by sunrise I watched and waited
Waited for the bird that was my angel within

But she never returned
And I'm still waiting
Where is she
Is she gone

Was she murdered by a man, thinking that she was just some bird?

All day long I sit by the riverside
Watching the sunrise and sunset
I'm waiting for my angel to appear
But I'll have to accept I'll never see her again
'Cos she never returned

And I'm still waiting
Where is she


8. SURREAL

I know that I should love you
But I simply can't
All you do is letting me down
And my heart too
What is love if you love me
Like you say
Then love
Is a little sick

And love is a little surreal
And they are a little surreal


9. SWEET LITTLE BROTHER

Can't exactly remember what's happened
I think I came home late
He stood in the doorway, waiting for me
I saw how he was holding a big sharp knife
Pointing at me
I got scared and asked "What's wrong, what are you doing boy, are you mad?"

But no answer at all, he just came closer and closer
No sense at all, he just came closer and closer
I began to run, but he came closer and closer
I ran for my life

He was so much faster than me
He caught me by the lake, I fell
I was so confused, I could hear my gasping breath
Still he was moving closer, holding his knife
I must have taken it
And then killed him
'Cos he lied too still, open wounds bleeding
Grass and water turned red

Oh boy, what have I done, he was my sweet little brother
Oh boy, how come, I killed my sweet little brother
Hh God, look at him, look at his guilty, lifeless body
I killed my sweet little brother

I never heard his voice
Until I watched him die
Now voices chase me
Including his
No, they're all his
