Track Name: Freakshow
Freakshow

welcome to my nightmare
it creeps under your skin
take a look at the freakshow
I can be your key and let you in

I’m welcoming you to a magic moment
bound to send you shivers down your spine
you’re up for amusement, taking you aback
and I’m about to give you all a line

I promise you a thrill of a lifetime
never seen before
I wish you could sleep tonight
you will turn into a creature of habit
coming back for more
I wish you could sleep tonight, and dream about…

try to figure it all out and you will find
take a look at yourself this time
we all need a dream (keep dreaming)

try to figure, try to read between the lines
take a shot in the dark this time

try to figure and keep up an open mind
take a look at yourself this time

welcome to my nightmare
it greets with a cruel grin
lining up for the freakshow
I can barely wait to let you in

I’ll beckon when the show is finally over
freezing vivid memories in time
much to my amusement, you’ll be coming back
and I’ll be there, again, to hold the line
Track Name: Driving my car
Driving my car

put your mind on a future journey
put your mind on a greater call
put your mind on a different level
turn your key and drive…

driving my car
takes me to my wildest dream
gives me pleasure in between
driving my car
shifting gear, increase the speed
down along the boulevard

set the coarse for a great adventure
and make sure to please your soul
make this trip to a higher learning
to free your soul!

on the coarse for a great adventure
and you’re sure to please your soul
you’re on a road to a higher learning
turn your key and drive

destination zero
here comes another broken hero

ten thousand miles, ahead of me to drive
ten thousand miles, ahead of me…

driving my car
take me to ay wilder dream
give me pleasure in between
driving my car
shifting gear and make a start
down along the boulevard
Track Name: If my lips could reach God's ear
If my lips could reach God's ear

if my lips could reach god’s ear
I would tell him many things
all the stories about fear
and the terror someone brings
I’d like to tell it to god’s ear
I would tell him many things

if I could change the world
I would make it better
if I could spread the word
we could change it together

if I could make a difference
I would surely try
if I could make a difference
it benefits both you and I

tear down the walls
build with new hope
change your way
tear down the walls
open your heart
break new waves

we can start to look within ourselves
all the small things which make all the difference
we can change our way
we can start to ask ourselves
is it worth it in between
Track Name: Face the ground
Face the ground

I've been behind this door 4 almost 5 years, I am 2 scared to go out
I suffer from all this delusions, reality scares the hell out of me
and all this paranoia, and I am so scared,
please somebody help me, please, please…

so much for innocence, I’m hearing voices
in my reminiscence, nothing but fear

I rather stay incognito, I rather keep to myself
I’ll never come to believe you, I put the trust in myself

life’s the harder part - watch me while I face the ground
I know I’m apart - judge me, as I face the ground
there for all to see - watch me, how I face the ground
dream of remedy - I face my head to the ground

so much for innocence, you’re in denial
in my reminiscence, nothing but guile

I used to hide myself behind
the company of me, myself and I

how many second chances can you expect in life?
feel like a fallen angel, all I can do is cry

I rather dream of redemption, I rather keep from your hate
I’ll never come to reliance, I put the trust in my fate

I used to cover up with lies
and no one ever cared to wonder why

how many second chances? carrying my own weight
fighting to find the answers, praying it’s not too late
Track Name: Liar
Liar (danced with the devil)

liar - I believed in every word
liar - that you ever said to me
liar - my trust in you were big enough for all eternity
liar - you were my everything
liar - included flesh and blood
liar - you were as family truly forced to bond

I never saw your true intention
I couldn’t see you dance with the devil

how was I supposed to know
you cut your deal, you trade your soul
I had faith in your judgment
but your greed made you want it all

danced… you danced with the devil
danced… you danced with the devil
you danced…

you were my sister
you were supposed to stand by me
the equation is simple
it’s called a family

liar - so many times I stood you by
liar - I’m so confused, I wonder why
liar - so many years, to see through your lies
liar - you’re betrayal made me throw the dice

in the blink of an eye you broke my heart
in a second you tore this family apart
in the name of greed

you’ve got to make this right again
you’ve got to make things right!
Track Name: You have to understand
You have to understand

talk to me, take a walk with me
still I’m a stranger, until eternity

I make my own path, I walk the lonely road
I have already figured it out

life’s just like a fiddle
you have to play it right
pretend it’s a riddle
and read between the lines

we have to change our way to think
we have to change in many ways
we have to change our way to live
in order to remain

you have to understand
this is the essence of extension
stand up and be a man
and go against the flood

it’s about control
we have to give up our dominion
it’s the only way for us to
keep what we call existence
Track Name: Illusion
Illusion

tell me my friend, how do you feel
tell me my friend, is this for real

it’s coming down… it will clear your mind

you cannot see the truth, before the illusion ends
don’t say you’re sorry, ‘cause I know
to be or not to be, in this reality
it eats your heart out, inside out

can you imagine a world without the wars
can you imagine to be free…

we cannot see the truth, the illusion never ends
so don’t you worry, ‘cause I know
to see or not to see, behind the scenery
it brings you down in misery

it’s coming down… it will free your mind

you cannot beat the truth, nor can you see the end
don’t say you’re sorry, ‘cause I know
to feel or not to feel, to try to keep it real
it eats your heart out from within

can you imagine a world without the poor
can you imagine to be free…

we will not meet the truth, before the illusion ends
so don’t you worry, ‘cause I know
not to be, nor less to see enslaved prosperity
it brings you down to misery
Track Name: Do we care at all
Do we care at all

why can’t you see, the world is tumbling down
why can’t you be smart enough to smile

do we care at all
I’ve been wondering when we’ll fall
balancing hard on the edge of it all
not taking care of our own
do we care at all…

we could have had garden of Eden, a heaven down on earth
(but) we took the lead on behalf of mankind
for what it was worth

we live in a time of slumber, better open up our eyes
and remember that we’re all strings in the web of life

do we care at all
I’ve been hoping we would stand tall
balancing hard on the edge of it all
not taking care of our own
do we care at all…

either we open up our eyes
or lay the whole place waste
we are left to our own device
whether to make a stand… it’s time to make a stand

we could have had garden of Eden, an endless paradise
but what goes down, must come around
so here’s my advice

if we wanna get fair and even then it’s about time
to remember that we’re all strings in the web of life
Track Name: Mr Looser
Mr Looser

I can see that you are waiting for the right moment
but let me tell you, that moment won’t wait for you
I can see your chances are slipping through your fingers
so let me tell you, they just don’t come to you

tell me what it’s like, not to have a chance in life

mirror, mirror, mirror on the wall
tell me, tell me, who’s about to fall

so many times this has happened before
too many times for me to ignore
- mirror, mirror, mirror on the wall
give me a clue and I’ll tell you why
give me your soul and you will get by
- loser, loser, you’re about to fall

why can’t you cease to live life like you ignore it
I stand beside, watching your life fade to grey
I can’t believe why you won’t live life to explore it
instead you walk the path that leaves you with hell to pay

tell me what it’s like, not to have a chance in life

but let me tell you, that moment won’t wait for you
I can see your chances are slipping through your fingers

tell me what it’s like, not to have a chance in life
Track Name: Confess before God
Confess before God

you told me so, there was no regrets
couldn’t live with love, couldn’t take the pain
you chose the coward’s path on this road
still no regrets…

how could you be so blind
what went through your mind

lord have mercy on your soul
- do you think you were brave?

lord have mercy on your soul
and you thought you were in pain

time goes by, heal those wounds
even in times of all those deep depressions
there is always hope
you can find comfort in your own confession
you must look behind the wall
time goes by, heal those wounds

it takes courage to live a lifetime
you have to stand by all those faults you’ve made

and that, my friend, that is brave
so brave, that is brave

so why did you take your life
you left your kids and wife behind
confess before god

so why did you take your life…
Track Name: You rock my world
You rock my world

talk is cheap and I hate your guts
you’re hard to please, still I love your touch
you rock my world

like a wound with beginners luck
you rip my heart like a thunderstruck
you rock my world

you can buy love with money
but never cross the line
you need to gently weep my honey
to consider yourself as mine

it’s a beautiful world, it’s totally upside down
so gently weep, so gently weep

I hate the way that you play with me
I need to feel that you care for me
you rock my world
Track Name: What's the point
What's the point

too many spoken words has too much impact in this world
crazy leaders with crazy minds, try to spread the words around
too many broken words are thrown upon us in a swirl
hazy prophets with hazy lies, at the edge of unholy ground

two times a day it seems I speak my words against the wall
is there anybody out there who can answer my desperate call

why can’t we talk to each other
why can’t we care for some other
‘cause we are ruled by the money

where’s the common senses anyway
there’s no common sense today
what’s the point of loose control
where’s the truthful words you’d like to say
where’s the wisdom of today
what’s the point of losing souls

I pray for answers, I’m asking god…

one night I fell into a dream
in rage I forced myself
to regain an everlasting faith

don’t you believe in what they say
talk is cheap and act is gold
they serve their lies on a plate for you
this is not your game to play

I pray for answers, I’m asking god
I know the answer is to go against the flood
Track Name: Create
Create

destructive behavior seems to be all that we have left
to wait for a savior, does that make any common sense?

this state of mind, makes us blind

we all know where this will lead, this chosen path
it seems so clear to me, like simple math

we are kindred spirits
sharing secrets, sharing dreams
weirdest kind of madness
is not always what it seems

we all suffer from the lack of human contact
beside the impulse through the global net

I can be your savior
sharing secrets, sharing dreams
I can tell the future
it’s not always what it seems…
Track Name: Freakshow reprise
Freakshow reprise

I’ll beckon when the show is finally over
freezing vivid memories in time
much to my amusement, you’ll be coming back
and I’ll be there, again, to hold the line

we all need a dream (keep dreaming)
