Track Name: Silverdragon Queen
she is a silverdragon queen
that`s what she is
she lies where no light`s ever been
deep down

she awakes and opens her eyes
when flaming red adorns the western skys
wind comes up
when she comes out
look at her majesty

wild and free she wants to be
she`s a real majesty
the fire of rage comes out of her mouth
she takes revenge, yeah

she is a silverdragon queen
restless
she is riding with the wind
searching watchful
her innocent heart was taken away
a long time ago on a faithful day
she does not rest until she gets what she wants
look at her tragedy

wild and free she wants to be
she`s a real majesty
the fire of rage comes out of her mouth
she takes revenge, yeah

wild and free she wants to be
she`s a real majesty
the fire of rage comes out of her mouth
she takes revenge, yeah
Track Name: Desperate Zombies
i bet you're cold and mean
face in tatters
i've seen you on the scene
you didn't look good at all

your eyes were like the withered leaves falling
the skin peeled from your face, looked truly galling

decomposed and smelly
this is what you are
ahaha
and you know
what it's like
to be a monster

you rise
the chicks are ready
they pray
you say
there's nothing steady in this world
they fall
bad luck
here’s the chance to force someone to suck
you dry
goodbye

decomposed and smelly
this is what you are
ahaha
and you know
what it's like
to be a monster

satisfy desire
this is what you want
ahaha
and you know
what it's like
to be a monster

i know you’re already dead
nothing matters
i shoot you in the head
to avoid a ride for a fall

your eyes pop out, your brain is badly bleeding
i’m looking at your head, looks like a leading

decomposed and smelly
this is what you are
ahaha
and you know
what it's like
to be a monster

i run
you fall
you shrink
i think
there’s nothing madder in this world
than to
shoot a zombie
and blow his brain all over this place here
i cry
goodbye

satisfy desire
this is what you want
ahaha
and you know
what it's like
to be a monster

decomposed and smelly
this is what you
this is what you
this is what you are now
Track Name: Psychobabble
was it me
you're thinking carefully

stumbeling thoughts are followed by
moments of clarity

afraid of confrontation
with reality

standing in the way of control
is what i do

closer, closer
further, further, further
laughing louder
i stay
i'm not going away

was it you
I'm thinking carefully

one last time, for sure
counting personalities

appreciated
something under two

but one more time in fucking hell
i can't pretend

louder, louder
laughing, falling, falling
into silence
i feel that you're drifting away

was it me
i forgot about
i'm falling with you
Track Name: Wild Horses Couldn't Drag Me There
can you imagine, standing there, feeling like your shoes were made out of concrete
i can feel the heaviness of the stones, can you feel it too ?
i am standing still, not able to make a step

trapped between the lines, i cannot see the signs.
can you see them, can you see them, can you see them ?
i cannot see them, i’m blind !

now i want to move, i want to go my way,
but another border forces me to stay

i cannot think clearly
i am stuck in this one fixed idea
get away, get away, get away is the only thing that comes to my mind

i was left behind, my way is undefined
can you see me, can you see me, can you see me ?
i cannot see you, i’m blind !

now i want to move, i want to go my way,
but another border forces me to stay
Track Name: Insane (Of Mary Jane)
strange vibes penetrating time and space
the air is getting thinner
bright stars, colliding in my face
the spirit seems to simmer

i lost my shadow and my mind
confusion makes me feel unreal
you're so unique, one of a kind
only you can make me feel
this way

insane - when i try to forget
in vain - to resist

i can't describe your effect on me
it's like i am drowning in
some kind of unreality
i can feel under my skin

your sweet secret ingredients
let me tend towards addiction
because this story never ends
it's written in prediction
of life

insane - when i try to forget
in vain - to resist and regret
insane - when i try
in vain - to resist

i'm looking in my face
a mirror never lies
now, what do i see ?
i only see disguise
deep inside i feel
that this is not for free
i can't believe it's true
but thats reality

insane - when i try to forget
in vain - to resist and regret
insane - when i try
in vain - to resist

i'm going insane
Track Name: Pusherman
god damn the pusher man
i'm the worst dick in the land
i make you sick, smiling and
i’m indeed not a friend

oh yeah, i’m the pusher man
i said oh yeah, i’m the pusher man

god damn the pusher man
i'm the worst dick in the land
i make you sick, smiling and
i’m indeed not a friend

oh yeah, i’m the pusher man
i said oh yeah, i’m the pusher man

in your darkest inner night
i am always by your side
i will never go away
though you don't want me to stay

i said oh yeah, i’m the pusher man

god damn the pusher man

Track Name: Where Have You Been
where have you been
we have been waiting so long

where have you been
come in take off your manners

where have you been
sit down enjoy your welcome

i ask you in
where have you been

the money, the money
the migthy, the money
the almighty money

and i know
that we need it too
i know it

where have you been
we have been waiting so long

i ask you in
where have you been

and we wanted the taste of money talks
shining banknotes coming out of our holes
useless pretty things all over the place
drowned in this shit with so much glory and grace

waiting for you, promising
so crazy, we wont let you go

we wont let you go
i know it

where have you been
sit down enjoy your welcome

i ask you in
where have you been
Track Name: Sandburg
cross the desert we run
under the sun
and we're gonna melt away

this trip is dreadful
what is the rule?
endless gagging for a drink

rising
flickering horizon
castle in the sand

close to
ultimate salvation
castle in the sand

seems like a bad joke
a spark of hope
cause we are on the rope

i am moving but my feet stands still
a stones throw away
but i have to stay
billion miles way

we're gonna freak out
there is no doubt
minds are turning inside out

the feeling runs high
a pie in the sky
seems to be the awful truth

rising
flickering horizon
ruins in the sand

close to
ultimate salvation
ruins in the sand

it dawned on me
agony
deadly lowlands since i'm here

i am breathing but my heart stands still to bite the dust
but i have to rust
dying unjust
Track Name: Summerrain
black clouds, moving overhead
raindrops running down my skin
they are falling on the roofs
the sound is loud and frightening

like the summerrain
in the heart of spain
release the strain
and ease my pain

like the summerrain
in the heart of spain
wash away the strain
and the pain

just before the storm
oppressive tense atmosphere
struck by a falling limb
the poet’s dying full of fear

like the summerrain
in the heart of spain
release the strain
and ease my pain

like the summerrain
in the heart of spain
wash away the strain
and the pain

sun is peeking through again
birds just wanna fly and sing
after cathartic thunderstorm
the smell is fresh and enchanting

like the summerrain
wash away the strain
and the pain
Track Name: Ride On It
treat it right and stop to fight it
we only got one
we don`t have to suck it, we`ve got to ride it
we only got one

treat it right and stop to fight it
we only got one
we don`t have to suck it, we`ve got to ride it

ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride

we only got one
there is no other one
we only got one
there is no other

watch the colours, watch the light
let it shine on your inside
let it take you for a ride

it`s my body and my blood
i`m the water and the mud
i don`t want to take it apart

ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride

we only got one
there is no other one
we only got one
there is no other one
there is no other one
yeah

treat it right and stop to fight it
we only got one
we don`t have to suck it, we`ve got to ride it
live on it, in it, with it
to rise excited
respect it you`re invited

ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride
ride on it, ride
ride on it
Track Name: Morning Sun
can you see me come
i deliver the morning sun
a new day arrives
slowly as I come
into the eyes of light
that comes out of the night

can you see me come
i deliver the morning sun
a new day arrives
slowly as I come
into the eyes of light
that comes out of the night

a new day
a new beginning
another life
let's keep the wheel spinning

can you see me come
i deliver the morning sun
a new day arrives
slowly as I come
into the eyes of light
that comes out of the night

can you see me come
i deliver the morning sun
a new day arrives
slowly as I come
into the eyes of light
that comes out of the night
