Track Name: Whitewater
there is one step left to get the story done
one step down onto the streets where i was born
but i dont feel the way i used to feel
the cloudless sky, it cleared away the storm

now i sit right on the edge of this old bridge
the water throwing sparks of golden light
and somewhere in a room there is a board on which
i store the things that once have told my life

down, down deep down
there is a vein
that no one touched before

down, down deep down
whitewater eating sand
on solitary shores
Track Name: Falcon's Love
we drive on a long forgotten road
into the scrubland, into the badlands
and all we have is long forgotten hope
but nevertheless we must try our best, my friend

while high above the falcon loves it's überblick
high above the falcon loves it's unterschicht

we try our best ot hide our flesh
under the firewood so dry, we don't need a light
and all we had is hidden in our ash
nevertheless we had tried our best, my friend

this is the place of birth
it is the time of cure
the lack of breath
and we go down

this is a piece of cake
and a cup of tea
the proof of death
and we go down

while high above the falcon loves it's überblick
high above the falcon loves it's unterschicht
Track Name: Flowers Of Despair
our fear is our strength
our strength is what we fear
what you see is what you get
says the hunter to the deer

and deep, deep down in the sea
in the everlasting nigth
dwell the echoes of bad dreams
filled with green and golden lights

our fear is our strength
our strength is what we fear
what you see is what you get
says the hunter to the deer

our fear is our strength
our fear is all we have
what is yours will soon be mine
says the wizard to the deaf

and deep, deep inside the cave
in the everlasting night
unfurl the flowers of despair
they glow in green and golden light

our fear is our strength
our strength is what we fear
what you see is what you get
says the hunter to the deer

our fear is our strength
our fear is all we have
what is yours will soon be mine
says the wizard to the deaf
Track Name: Evergreen
i am right, right on the edge of breaking the news
the world seems so flat when you've ruined your shoes
purple skies, metallic flies, distant sounds of monsters in the trees
cut-down fields, that seemed so nice
in times of war, but we found peace

oh i have never been
to lands that were so evergreen
the rivers flowed with mescalin
as when i was with her

oh i have never seen
her face in any other dream,
the sand that i was sinking in
as when i was with her

put the rope higher, high above the trees
finding your balance with blood on your feet
will come like a breeze, that caries you way
way over the burned-down, unlivable fields

you will find peace, keep your lips sealed
see with eyes closed and forget how to breath
you will find peace, keep your lips sealed
see with eyes closed and forget how to breath

oh i have never been
to lands that were so evergreen
the rivers flowed with mescalin
as when i was with her

oh i have never seen
her face in any other dream,
the sand that i was sinking in
as when i was with her

and i was digging
in the woods a hole
so deep i couldn't see the sky
my innervision blurred

but then i thought of you
and all disguise became so blue
cause lies have never felt so true
as when i was with her
Track Name: Symmetry, Reduction
symmetry and reduction
is what i'm fighting for
while the mirror throws the past
in perfect pattern on my floor

symmetry and reduction
is what i'm fighting for
while the mirror throws the past
in perfect pattern on my floor

symmetry and reduction
is what i'm searching for
while the sea throws every star
in precise manner on the shore

symmetry and reduction
is what i'm living for
symmetry and reduction
is what i'm dying for
Track Name: Sophisticated Heart
when i drive back home at night
all i see is you
all i see is you

and when i fly up to the sky
all i see is you
all i see is you

when i climb down from the trees
all i see is you
all i see is you

and when i hide my empty dreams
all i see is you
all i see is you

you are all that is left for me
my little barren land of dry-out riversand

you are all that is left for me
suprisingly sophisticated heart
