Lyrics

Album "epitome"

Epitome

As I met You in the middle of the night
in a steeple (I´m sure I got that right),
I bet You made me riddle out the dream,
not the people!

Chorus:
Would you give it to me one more time
to get rid of...
...getting rid of the
made up stories of the faint behind
in the mid of Your epitome?

May I ask You for another insight,
what am I supposed to do or where to step aside,
not to be in Your way, so I might!
Be only-sleeping!

Chorus

Let me lean on Your word of light
to find my way through the night!

Chorus



Ev‘ryday rain

Did you ever blame
the rain,
the rain

for driving you insane
again and again?

Chorus:
You don´t receive nothing right or wrong,
you just get it.
It either suits you or it doesn´t fit at all.

Remember your name
if you can
down memory lane.

Would you do the same
again and again?

So if you´re wet-a-man
you might change your plan,
not to become like right and wrong,
finding fault again.

You think: What a shame!
You are the one to blame

you were not listenin´
to your great
cardiac vein.

Chorus

And today it rains
again
on heads and grains...



1 man's eye

Surrender the day  s of dawning, if possible at all.
Forget the miller in the morning and the blue tiles on the wall!

What would be the best opportunity?
To take revenge´s not me!

Help me...

Chorus:
...reset the meter
and get the level right.
Just another case cleared up
by the One who seeded life
in one man´s eye.

I see the elderly lady
Would she step in for me?.
but she did not have in mind
someone else´s fault, not mine!

What is there to do except to turn to you again
to take me by the hand to help

Chorus

[Running through the alphabet,
chose a letter,
make a change without regret,
think you better.]

From my poem´s point of view
it is time for a censura too!
So may I please throw it all back at you

Chorus

[There´s no ease in this you bet,
mind the weather,
being shined or getting wet,
all together.]

in one man´s eye.

 

 

Hazy Dream

Get the right machine to feed
and take the opportunity
to change a file for a while,
and rename it randomly.

Scan the drive you intend to use
with enough capacity
and start a game with a shady name
to kill the ennui.

Today you´ll reach a score
you never reached before

Chorus:
...in your hazy dream
coloured blurs on a high def screen
would not even hurt your eyes
in front of your device..

Excitement stepping in
due to the adrenaline
that enables you to speed right through
the game you intend to win,

´cause you´re not used to lose
to the enemy to bruise

Chorus

Shoot your gun,
and it feels like
you have already won,
while the cyber crew´s weapon is on you!

Leaving for your cyber sphere
you nearly disappear
from where you are up to your star
so far away from here.

Will you send a mail:
greetings from my jail...

Chorus

Shoot another gun,
and again it feels like
you have already won,
while the cyber crew´s weapon is on you!

Get the right machine to feed
and stay in reality...!

 

 

 

Enlighten

Walking up my home hill,
starring into the night,
observe a great big something made of light.

As the dream observer
I turn my head around,
watch the lamp-like objects off the ground

Distracted from going home
headin´ up the hill
instead I try to reckon up a bill..

Chorus:
To epitomize the sun
warming light you have to be (yeah).
The harder you try to shine
the less you enlighten me.

Calling for a nation
in the case it´s manned,
not expecting an answer from no-mans-land.

Numbing fear is creeping in
cause here I am alone with the mysterious light
of some alien´s pleasure dome.

Chorus

In the 1950 I guess you had your little brothers here,
hanging round the ceiling everywhere...

...and even in my early days some of you were there
leading to these visions in the air.

Chorus

Happiness is a warm gun
for huntsmen this might be
the case!
The harder you try to aim
the less you will succeed.

Less you enlighten me
haven´t invited you to my hazy dream...

 

 

Days of love

Did you call just once or even twice?
Did you ever get an answer?
Why not try and redial just one more time?

How patient are we supposed to be
to become free floating dancers?
Watch the hands and the feet you might need
to keep the pace and to head for the days of love.

Imagine you are not invited to a party scene,
would you show up even though?
There´s a message on your answ´ring machine
to be erased, keeping the space for love.
Awaiting the days of love.

And if you feel you come too late, got to accelerate your stride,
keep straight ahead on the road of latitude. You decide!
[between day & night,
between left & right,
between dark & light.]

Close the door and pray and be sure to meet
the long-awaited answer!
Could it be "Get the weight off your feet."
[Please leave a message after the bleep]
to walk on the ways of love,
awaiting the days of love.
Heading for the days of love,
expecting His amazing love,
keeping the space for love.



As it comes

Take me as I come
and excuse me for the face I put on!
People say I´m sad
or that I am infact a grudge!
Does that really mean that much to me?
Send your eyes to see...

It is just that face
that´s impressing what I´m not today?
Tomorrow I may well be
what you want to see!

Take it as it comes!
Take it as it used/seems to be!

Exaggerated grimaces for certain create discomfiture for all.
Appreciated difference around the curtain: before and behind the wall!
Eliminated look of rise and fall...!

I take that fore-advice, so I return your eyes!

(Take it as it comes! Take it as it used/seems to be!)



Here & Alive

I wonder why
it took me like it took me by surprise,
with just the will in charge
unable for a change.

An overwhelming lie
darkened all day life,
looking back in time it appears to be so strange!

But now I´m here and alive
work on leaving things behind
brighten up the day
if possible for me.

When you said a word
or sang it to me to make it even worse
the day was lost, preferably at my cost.

But sound was no necessity,
cause the view of yours was just enough
for me to chain my mind with your handcuff.

But now I´m here and alive
work on leaving things behind
brighten up the day
if possible for me.

Being there & alive
still hoping you feel fine
As far as I can tell
I wish you well.

A look from your precious eyes,
that plumbed my very soul,
can no more pressurise and take over control.

So now I´m here and alive
work on leaving things behind
brighten up the day
if possible for me.

Being there & alive
still hoping you feel fine
As far as I can tell
I wish you well.



No time to lose

I am running fast to catch the train
cause it might be the last to Spain.
But the station clock I give a casual glance
proves I don´t stand a chance.

Take a look in your calendar
and have a drink at the adrenaline bar today
the lack of white paper makes it clear
you gotta stumble out of here.

Chorus:
Take your time to hold it
and give it back where it belongs
and in the meantime you sing some other songs
about the time to notice
it´s no crime to quit this dalliance at once.
There´s no time to lose!

To hurry to your next date
implies that you gonna be to late.anyway
and to speed up while you´re on the phone
doesn´t save you from being alone.

Chorus

And when the world falls asleep
a neighbour has an eye to keep awake
cause he´s so afraid to miss a great event
outside his oxygen tent!

Chorus:
Take your time to hold it
and give it back where it belongs
and in the meantime sing some other songs
about the time to notice
it´s no crime to quit this dalliance at once
It never is a loss of time (there´s time to lose)
it´s gonna be a gain of life (on slowed-down shoes)
you never win a single dime (what´s money after all!)
one day we leave it all behind!
There´s no time to lose!

 

 

 

Underwater garment

Here I meet you surpringly.
You´re wearing underwater garment.
Asking you you´re telling me
you´re gonna take a bath.

so I left you be on your way
to dive the sea or whatever water.
Forgot it all until the day
I realized you´re gone.

I haven´t seen you for a long long time,
whereever you are on the way of life.

As discribed by you
you´re looking forward to the view
from your favourite mountain you intend to climb it up,
for once to be on top.

I haven´t seen you for a long long time,
whereever you are on the way of life.
At this very moment you´re on my mind!

See you´re not still there in lonesome places of despair
you once were longing!
That you´re dry and not alone
and not to high to feel at home...!

I haven´t seen you for a long long time,
whereever you are on the way of life.
At this very moment you´re on my mind!
However deep you want to dive...



The time machine

...and You were always there even if I´m not awake
...and You always lead the way of life I cannot make.
...and I was up the skies to watch Thy loving face.
...and I looked down to realize the devil´s fervent race.

I am flying (remember how that felt; behind the hands of your time).
I can see You smiling (in the faces melting).

You´re in my dream, raise me up
to the face of Your time machine.
„You shall not make for yourself an idol“
makes You smile amidst this heightened scene.

Do we use the skills we´re given by?
Everything will fade away!
Leave a message to the afterworld you might call tomorrow
and greet the new day!

..and You were showing me the exegisis in this
nocturnal frame set up by Thee. You will always win!
But the dark´s still trying (unwilling to except that this is futile!)
while I´m still flying (there won´t be a reception).

You´re in my dream, raise me up
to the face of Your time machine.
You shall not make for yourself an idol
makes You smile amidst this heightened scene.

[Let me fly, You know what time it is, in the tower of Your smile!]

Remember...
Behind the hands of Your time...
I can see You smiling...

Do we use the skills we´re given by?
Everything will fade away!
Leave a message to the afterworld you might call tomorrow
and greet the new day!

 

Out the inverted mess

Will you answer what I ask?
I know you know a lot
if I put a dime into your slot.

Expected for my waste:
a Stoner sweet not to my taste,
to be replaced with Christ,
with Jesus Christ!

Knowledge isn´t truth,
botox isn´t youth,
pullin´ the tooth of assertiveness.
Money isn´t sense,
love isn´t romance,
but the way out the inverted mess.

Could we have a little chat
about God and this and that?
But I failed to reach you jailed.

Hear the music, read the words,
even if not mother tongue.
Never bestir to get a song,
cause it´s just me who came along!

Knowledge isn´t truth,
botox isn´t youth,
pullin´ the tooth of assertiveness.
Money isn´t sense,
love isn´t romance,
but the way out the inverted mess.
