Moment of Glee

Freedom…is what this feels like to me
Enchanted…by what sounds like a thousand symphonies
Taken…by a magical delight
Unleashing…what is bound up so tight

Caught in a moment of pure ecstasy
Caught in a moment of glee

I feel like I can fly in the heavens so high
Elation…in a smooth paradise
Consequence…of fire and ice

Caught in a moment of pure ecstasy
Caught in a moment of glee

A raging sea inside of me
So insane, but not in vain

Falling…deep into the fire
I’m burning…with primeval desire
I’m weakened…from my head to my feet
My heart is pounding…to an African beat

Caught in a moment of pure ecstasy
Caught in a moment of glee

Zeta Reticuli

Is someone up in the starry sky
Staring this way wondering why
We haven’t met this far in time
Too far to fly, too high to climb

Maybe someday things will change
The impossible re-arranged
But for now I’ll wish upon your star
Just do the same…we ain’t that far…

It’s hard to believe
That you are light years away
It’s hard to believe
That we wouldn’t get along

And it’s hard to believe
That you are there across the Milky Way
And it’s hard to believe
We haven’t sung a thousand songs about you
Why believe…?

Mother Earth so pure and green
Doesn’t need our kings and queens
To keep spinning round and round
Like the other planets…

The Captains of our weary race
Will go in hiding, fall from grace
When the mystery of you subsides
So we can finally meet and we can turn the tide

It’s hard to believe
That you are light years away
It’s hard to believe
That we wouldn’t get along

And it’s hard to believe
That you are there across the Milky Way
And it’s hard to believe
We haven’t sung a thousand songs about you
Why believe…?

Above a majestic canopy of lights
So many worlds out of sight
Makes me wonder…

Maybe the truth would frighten us too much
Maybe we’re too out of touch…

It’s hard to believe
That you are light years away
It’s hard to believe
That we wouldn’t get along

And it’s hard to believe
That you are there across the Milky Way
And it’s hard to believe
We haven’t sung a thousand songs about you
Why believe…?

Super Virtual
 
Escaping all that surrounds
With your head above the clouds
Be moved by the endless sights and sounds
Until they run you to the ground
 
Peer into a cyber-fabric land
Through synthetic strands
Answers to every question known to man
Do you understand?
 
Around the world a thousand times
No limits or traffic signs 
All this and more from my hometown
Super Virtual!
 
Amusing rave, live from the cave
An instant sensation…
Popular and lonely
Untouchable! Invincible!
“This broadcast brought to you LIVE by my pain
For your entertainment!”
Goodnight, I love you all!
 
Around the world a thousand times
No limits or traffic signs 
All this and more from my hometown
Super Virtual!
 
You can see me
But I can’t see you
You can’t see me
But I can see you
 
Find the key to your salvation
Self – elevation
Shelter from the snow sun and rain
Rather boon that bane?
 
In love with a soul mate from across the sea
Can’t touch what you can see
Fulfilling all your darkest fantasies
Until they bring you to your knees
 
Around the world a thousand times
No limits or traffic signs 
All this and more from my hometown
Super Virtual!

 A Million Lies

They live through their lies
Puppets and masquerades run their lives
The wolves of trade engage you
Surround and masticate you

You are used, mass confused
Trapped in their ruse

And you don’t even know…

Here we go, against the flow
A million times
Against the free, you and me
A million crimes
 
Here and there and everywhere
A million cries
Here I go, around we go
A million lies

Evacuate, run and hide!
A ticking time bomb ticks deep inside
Relate to the demon inside your walls
Talk too much, mental crutch
You wanna SCREAM!

And you won’t even change…

Here we go, against the flow
A million times
Against the free, you and me
A million crimes

Instrumental

Here we go, against the flow
A million times
Against the free, you and me
A million crimes

Nothing

The faceless one approaches the man
Without a temple, with his head stuck in the sand
It slivers and crawls through the cracks in your walls
It sees the void within, it hears the silent calls
Yeah, yeah it hears the silent calls…

It tightens what’s bound in your head
It thickens the dark and thins the light, leaves you for dead
Now you’re running blind with no place to hide
Because the inner peace was taken, what was buried deep inside

Nothing man made, or magical
Nothing makes you so sad and blue
Nothing obvious or logical
Nothing took something out of you

They look at you through tiny bars
They can’t feel the pain, but they can sure see the scars
The winds of change they seem so cold
And they won’t get any warmer so I was told
So I was told…

When the light shines at the top of that hill
You want to climb up and catch a ray, but your body’s frozen still
By the darkness and evil concealed
By the shadow of nothingness, the reaper of fear

Nothing man made, or magical
Nothing makes you so sad and blue
Nothing obvious or logical
Nothing took something out of you

Instrumental Bridge

Nothing man made, or magical
Nothing makes you so sad and blue
Nothing obvious or logical
Nothing took something out of you

Highway
 
Driving in the dim lights of a crescent moon
How did I get so far so damn soon
With the wounds of a lonely soul so deep
That life it seeps dripping towards an endless sleep
 
I open my tearful eyes
Tiny angels around me, can you hear my cries?
Shackled in this bed so well
In a moving land between heaven and hell
 
Where will I be tomorrow?
Where am I tonight?
I’m lost in shadows
On this dreary night…
 
All the blood in my veins
Filled with life and love now filled with blinding pain
My screams are frozen in the savage chill
Only echo on and on in the distant hills
 
Frightened and alone
All around me lifeless like a stone
Where was this, this place so cold
Where the unspeakable unfolds
 
Where will I be tomorrow?
Where am I tonight?
I’m lost in shadows
On this dreary night…
 
I’m on a highway
A highway with no cars
I’m on a highway
A realm of planets and stars
I’m on a highway
I see the distant, hazy bends
I’m on a highway
Goodbye my lifelong friends…
 
‘Cause I cannot die another night
And I cannot sleep another day
‘Cause I am wrapped around in chains
On a roadside so far away…
 
Instrumental

The Sane Old You

You judge yourself looking at the wrong reflection
Vanity, nothing but a sick deception
What is real hides behind the surface
Your grinding wheels spin without a purpose

When your guard is down
And you’re the only one around
You can catch yourself…
Going back to the sane old you
Going back to the same old you

Beyond your door, you’re guided by an inhibition
Pretentious words adding to you sick collection
Hoping you’ll grow out of this disguise
Only then you will know the reasons for your cries

When your guard is down
And you’re the only one around
You can catch yourself…
Going back to the sane old you
Going back to the same old you

Self loathing tendencies
Oppose what’s portrayed
Neurotic dependencies
The little tricks of the trade

We used to think that we could get through any kind of weather
But now you say we are no longer birds of a feather
Now we both cry for reasons so absurd
Swallow your plastic pride or follow the plastic herd

When your guard is down
And you’re the only one around
You can catch yourself…
Going back to the sane old you
Going back to the same old you

Time Machine

What does a grown man do
To go to places on worn out pictures?
A painting left out in the rain
Reflections in a broken mirror…
 
I built a mechanical toy
Going back into the bygone years
Take to distant déjà vus
Take me to the nowhere near
 
Whisk away like a rocket ship
In the chill of the midnight sky
Where the billion lights are the thousand nights
That went by in the blink of an eye
 
To see what I can see
Just close your eyes and you will be
Aboard the Time Machine
 
Distance makes the heart grow fonder
While time has frozen memories
Suddenly the nights get colder
And the days sing a sad melody
 
A picture can paint a thousand words
But it doesn’t have a clue
As to what has come and gone with the world
Since that little moment of you
 
To see what I can see
Just close your eyes and you will be
Aboard the Time Machine

 
Instrumental Bridge
 
Another journey to an end
Lying alone in my bed
Awakened by the morning light
Singing the same song again…
 
To see what I can see
Just close your eyes and you will be
Aboard the Time Machine

Aurora And Halo
 
Mirages and illusions
Censor one’s reality
Collages of delusions
Defining one’s morality
 
Many moons ago
Ruled by my mind
I learned to let go
To go deep down and find…
 
Aurora and Halo
The noble and wise
A ray breaks from the sky
 
Aurora and Halo
Come pacify my cries
Come wipe away the tears from my eyes
Aurora and Halo
 
Imposed and dictated
Gospel are the words they say
Cloned and sedated
Non singular in every possible way
 
Through and awareness
I’ve come to know and be
The white celestial sorceresses
Have come to set me free
 
Aurora and Halo
The noble and wise
A ray breaks from the sky
 
Aurora and Halo
Come pacify my cries
Come wipe away the tears from my eyes
Aurora and Halo
