Track Name: Move On
Move on

if you will take this way - you maybe get hurt
so change your direction - this feels so absurd
doubtful and numb you are - unable to move
once you had dreams - now they are buried and dead

for so long your fear pressed you down, hold you back,
so before you collapse you better ….

you better move on…
this time there is no returning
there is no coming back

timid and uncertain - you start to walk
it still feels unstable - unfamiliar and strange
but no longer you are - afraid to walk on
and finally you’ll see - you move easily.
Track Name: Big Great White
Big great white

waiting – staying
moving – thinking
dancing – falling
watching the empty space

crying – laughing
hating – kissing
taking – giving
listening to the…


Just you and me and no space and time
Nothing that matters, forever mine
I will be there when you call my name
While our uncertainties burst into flames.
Track Name: Letting Go
Letting go

to live means
to be related to something/ to someone
to die means
just this relation remains.

as you breathe, you feel, you love, you cry,
you become aware that you are alive
what it means to live

awaking at the dead of night
weird thoughts are flashing through my mind
the possibility of my own non-existence
scares me, confuses, seems so absurd.

(from time to time) I’m afraid of dying
I don’t know if there’s another side
(what is on the other side)
can’t cope with man’s mortality
so just help me letting go
Track Name: Slow Down
Slow down

you need to hurry up
go faster, get quicker, don’t waste your time
move forward, progress,
you snooze, you lose, don’t you forget about anything
think quicker, work harder,
be the first in line, hurry up
you are running out of time, out of money
If you don’t use it, you lose it

so many voices are calling,
telling me what to do,
I’ve got only one answer
slow down and just let it go

stop running, stop thinking
wake up, be aware
nothing really matters,
nothing you need to care about,
just close your eyes and
take a deep breath
open up all your windows
slow down and relax
Track Name: Haunted - Confronted

I run ´cos I’m haunted by something obscure
restless I need to go faster and faster
I cannot stop though I struggle for breath
I feel it gets closer, breathing down on my neck

why you’re running away?
what do you conceal?
are you afraid of …?
or just ashamed?
you hide away!
no need to worry
just close your eyes!
Track Name: Beyond the looking glass
Beyond the looking glass

a flame burns in the sea
the moon is full of stars
a wave is rising high
the sun drips from it's heat

the fire consumes the flame
the heat will burn itself
the water gives place to the sea
all wave are going down
the sun is reflecting the moon
the stars are burning up
the air is taking it's breath

follow me beyond the looking glass
to the other side
I face myself from the
inside – outside
I get closer to the bottom
to the heart of things

all that seemed to matter
turned out to be useless and wrong
the walls are tumbling
I remain shattered and disiIllusioned
but relived and free!
Track Name: When it all comes down
When it all comes down

with eyes wide opened
at full speed
we are navigating
towards the abyss
going into nowhere
but no one seems to care
in silence we are remaining calm
and far afield I hear a choir
that sings to me...

when it all comes down
it will change us all
for now and ever
there will be no pain
and there will be no fear
we all will face salvation

we are pretending
normal life, daily routine
we keep forgetting
suppress unpleasant realities
“force of habit”
the impossibility of starting over,
a new beginning
and far afield the choir is still singing:
Track Name: Aims and Limitations
Aims and Limitations

in cases I'm weeping,
the stuff that I'm longing for,
sometimes I'm to change
my perspectives
to something bad ...
and I'm blaming all the f*** on you
and put it out
of what was once my reach

lights shine bright from this crest
from the fortress of sought-after lives
strange men that were to escape
cation me against illusions ahead

now that I've reached
what I've been yearning for
bright lights have lost their intensity
and I know it all will start from scratch

I fear the illusions ahead
the path is paved with skulls of red
Track Name: Supernova of my heart
Supernova of my heart

awaking somewhere
open your eyes for the very first time
before they are shut again
breath in - breath out
and listen to the sun

birth and death mean
welcome – good bye
life hits the edge
all boundaries expand

the earth will shake and tremble
as you are losing grounds
one last explosion
a flash of light
a burning star
everything is light tonight

may the stars lead
your coming ways, your way back home
may the sun shine upon your entire days
as the cycle comes to and end
as you come back to where it all began
