Rescue 03:35
text&music: Wolf Scheidt Rescue Wind from south, billowing sails beneath the rolling sea the commpass shows my destiny and finally, I overcame this oddyssey your trust in me, did rescue me Alone in heavy weather and shaken by the raging sea no storms, no gales could conquer me on day´s of calmness, lost in fog, the route impossible to see, my trust in you, was guiding me tremendous impact of extremes there`s no return for us, it seems the higher forces spun their net you are the greatest blessing I did ever get wind from south, billowing sails beneath the rolling sea to all what comes, I will agree And finally, we`re heading for eternity your trust in me did rescue me

Stranger 03:50
Stranger You did send him all your light to guide him on his way he was walking home fourteen nights and was hiding during the day as a leader of a bunch of ragged and wornout men but your light gave him strentgh and hope for himself and them But when he came back home he felt like a stranger, though he often tried to talk to you, but he didn`t know how and all what you have grown and your care he couldn`t stand and what you`ve sown he destroyed with an cold and iron hand When you felt ill he prayed to god that you would stay and he felt lost and guilty, when you passed away his impressions and the things he overcame, he buried deep inside for him it was clear he would never find forgiveness and peace of mind All his life time I could get nothing out of him but when I refused the service he was the only one who supportet me but all his grief and sorrow, he hid inside and I don`t know if he was at peace whith himself when he died But in my dreams, you brought it to an end I see you both walking on a path of starlight hand in hand. and all what was cold and cruel is suddenly warm and kind and finally he can find forgiveness and peace of mind

Tigersong 02:37
Tigersong The Tiger went to the East The Tiger went to the West Now he returns to the mountain his worn out body needs to rest It´s like a king is dying without having an heir returning to the origin earth, water, fire and air I hope I can follow your path the ancient say it`s all already done all you must do is to realize it and your doubts will melt like ice in the sun The Tiger went to the East The Tiger went to the West Now he returns to the mountain his worn out body needs to rest Your chair remains empty now further on I have to walk alone, I may never hear you singing the song of returning home, Farewell my precious friend I may never see you again you said we`re neither born nor will we die there is no beginning and no end

Train without brakes It was a wild ride and you think it will go on and on like this but there comes an abyss soon you can`t see it cause you are drunk with bliss watch out, you sit in a train without brakes watch out, you sit in a train without brakes this train won`t stop but there comes an abyss soon you must jump off the time for it is opportune you must jump off thats`s all what you must do I won`t let you down I`ll be there, I promise you

Mother 03:34
Mother Mother said, take car yourself If you want you can break on through to live a merry live, to fame and success, to do the things I wasn`t able to do But I didn`t take care of myself and I didn´t break through I didn`t try to be successful I never did know what to do It all turned out quite different it was all illusion in the end I had a lot of fellas but never a real true friend Had many casual liaisons but true love I could never stand I´ve wasted my life, destroyed all the good which ever came to me I tried out many things and drifted around but what I wanted I could never see It all turned out quite different it was all illusion in the end

The endless sea (for Jack) Last journey now you leave the shore the sky is blue and deep in your best suit, on your face a royal glance waves rocking you to sleep The dice are shaken, there ́s no way back One penny is the fee The dice are shaken now is waiting for you the endless sea, the endless sea the endless sea, the endless sea Onwards and onwards you ́re floating now all boundaries are left behind you did not leave us, you just went ahead it helps to keep that in mind The dice are shaken, there ́s no way back One penny is the fee The dice are shaken now is waiting for you the endless sea, the endless sea the endless sea, the endless sea

Heavenhell 02:27
HeavenHell A little window, a bucket in the corner That`s my heaven hell my evil good space The walls carved with signs from the people before me Maybe every men has such a place There is no harm and no satisfaction And I feel neither trapped nor free A giant war has burned all my thoughts And a pitchblack bright light shines on me
8.
Goodbye 03:26
Goodbye Tell me where do we go It doesn`t make any sense I feel trapped and I need a dispense from you Dont wanna see your face Cant stand your smile Your smell makes me sick I think we both need a break Thats all Like a river that`s dry Like a bird which can`t fly That`s how we live since years That`s why I say goodbye Goodbye!

Black Lodge 04:24
Black Lodge I fear to switch of the light my bed is soaked with sweat More than death I fear to go insane In every corner I can see the vicious grin of Bob My mind is playing with me an evil game Since weeks I find no sleep my fear is like a snake Which pulls me deeper and deeper inside Can`t find the reason why Can`t neither laugh nor cry Can`t even find a place to hide Have a coffee in the Black Lodge, Boy! Black coffee in the Black Lodge, Boy! When I look in the mirror I can see his face, That´s the way he was introduced The most outrageous things he made me do It`s clear that I no longer rule the roost Please stay away from me `Cause he took over my deeds He came and ate me up from inside Please, dont ask me why It doesn´t help to cry And you won`t find a place to hide Have a coffee in The Black Lodge, Boy! Black coffee in the Black Lodge, Boy! You are logged n The Black Lodge, Boy!

Startime 02:39
Startime Soother of my moods Generator of my finest qualities With no hesitation I would do for you Any heroic feats Even if I had to be convinced How could I ever regret Defeater of my sorrows The most wonderful I´ve ever met After years of toil a dream came true After years of toil I was ready for you You say we come from Startime You say we all come from there A place where we can be together Ever since and forever Ever since and forever

Dreamsong 04:00
Dreamsong All the words I wrote to you I send them back All the love I feel for you I send it back All the thoughts I share with you I send them back I send them back into the water I send them back into the river I know the silence of the moon I know the deepness of the sea I know the secrets of the stars A doorless gate does need no key In our dreams we fly together In our dreams we`re bound forever

Die Alive! 02:11
Die alive! So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth! I can tell you something I wanna die alive I don`t wanna be spuen out, man I wanna die as this wild beast I am I wanna die - I wanna die - I wanna die alive! As a man who walked his own way, who had the gutts to look inside so that I can say when I go, man, I do know who I am I wanna die as a man who stopped lieing, As the bad motherfucker I am Die as one who wasn`nt fooled by others Who wasn`t part of the dead walking men I wanna die - I wanna die - I wanna die alive!
