Who you gonna be?
The owner of the moon
A soon forgotten hero with a never fading bloom
Who you wanna be?
When you realize you're failing all the time
Who you wanna be?

Where do you wanna go?
When you leave your past behind
When you move yourself in circles
When there's nothing left to find
Where do you wanna go?
When you feel there's nothing left for you to do

Who you wanna be?
In a world of sad and loneliness
Who you wanna be?
You're full of all the emptiness
Who you wanna be?
When the moon is on the wane

An ordinary man got a ticket to the life to come
You will attain the land a day
Hey man, what you wanna take along
Don't you know the price you pay

For your greedy thoughts, your pretty Gods
You give yourself away
Who you wanna be?
Where you wanna go?

Mr. Mirror don't tell me what you see
I'm a content man in a modern world
That's all I want to be
So why should I go to a place I never wanted to belong

I don't wanna be in a world of sad and loneliness
I don't wanna be the fool of all the emptiness
I don't wanna be no shadow in the rain
An ordinary man, man, yeah

Who you wanna be?
In a world of sad and loneliness
Who you wanna be?
When you're full of all the emptiness
Who you wanna be?
When the moon is on the wane
A ordinary man

You've changed the world around you
Is it better now?
No starving anymore
Hey,is it better now?
Your helpless little fingers
They've never been as calm as now
Your trembling is over
It's better now

If there was a light in the dark
I would try to wake you up
Could I look into your eyes
While another baby cries
Forgive me

I see the children in the playfield
You had to leave your place
Your silent accusation
They took away your face
Your little life was over
before it ever had begun
Your little wings were broken
You've never reached the sun

If there was a light in the dark
I would try to wake you up
Could I look into your eyes
Would you take my alibis
Forgive me

Ev'rybody knows it
Repression is the way
You're not the child next door
You're much too far away

But there's no light in the dark
So I won't try to wake you up
I couldn't look into your eyes
In this world of alibis
Forgive me

I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

I'm sitting here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
While nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don't want to sit on the lemon-tree

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
And I wonder, wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see, and all that I can see, and all that I can see
Is just a yellow lemon-tree

Hello, who are you?
I never saw this girl before
I was astonished as can be
Somebody told me she said
you're just a hungry little guy
So I would like to offer me
to bake some cake for you
The sweetest one you've ever tried
A special cake for you
The one that makes you satisfied
Good-bye sadness,
I'm dreamin' while you slip away

She took me by the hand
She really took me by surprise
One piece of cake was not enough
And so I helped myself
We danced in fool's paradise
and I got drunk of all the love
Then I realized she moved her velvet body over mine
I felt like melting ice
I just admit this woman was divine
Hey, hey, madness,
I'm Dreamin' while you slip away

While Buddy the sweeper was singing a sad song
And Mary the singer swept the street
The honeymoon's floating over the river
Your cake is sweet

I had a heartache
All the pain was over now
She said: "Bye, bye, little babe"
It was nice to meet you
She closed her eyes and disappeared
I hope some day we'll meet again
If apple or cherry-pie
you honey-bee I love the way you bake
Your cakes are wonderful
Don't care about my stomach-ache
Good-bye sadness,
I'm dreamin' while you slip away

While Buddy the sweeper was singing a sad song
And Mary the singer swept the street
The honeymoon's floating over the river
Your cake is sweet

Riding on a boat of time into the future
waiting for the day to go under
Inside the great big ocean
we look for the origin
We're riding, riding and we wonder

Science and progress can't open the chain
At any day we've get out again
We're looking for the reason
for the big wheel's spinning around ?out ancestries found

Take me down ?to where the water flows
Take me up ?to where the big wind blows
and make me melt inside of you
Take me out ?come on and take me into

We're passengers of time
succeeding our fathers
We're standing in a queue and we rack
our brains over riddles, problems and solutions
At any day we reach the track

Science and progress can't open the chain
At any day we've get out again
All we know is that
we really don't know nothing at all ?face to the wall

Take me down ?to where the water flows
Take me up ?to where the big wind blows
and make me melt inside of you
Take me out ?come on and take me into

The sky's blue, the water's blue too, my baby's walkin' away.
Out of the blue - into a ****in' day.
She feels good and she feels sorry for me,
She tells me "honey don't worry" but I am so confused,
My baby's walkin', walkin' away. It don't mean nothing to me.
You don't mean nothing to me - stay! And think about the

Wild, wild days. Don't you feel like I feel?
About the Wild, wild days. Is it a dream is it real?
About the Wild, wild days.

Sittin' in the middle of a battlefield, my baby is walkin' away.
All the wounds that could have been healed
But my baby is walkin' away. I brought you flowers,
I buttered your bread, I washed your car. Don't you remember
You said that you would love me 'till the end? And now you're
Walkin' away, walking away. It don't mean nothing to me.
You don't mean nothing to me - stay! And think about the

Wild, wild days. Don't you feel like I feel?
About the wild, wild days. Is it a dream is it real?
About the Wild, wild days.

It's too late,
It's time for you to wake up.
She don't need flowers,
Only diamonds and make-up,
So sorry but now she's on my mind,
All mine.

Talk!

About the
Wild, wild days. Don't you feel like I feel?
About the Wild, wild days. Is it a dream is it real?
About the Wild, wild days.

Talk!

About the
Wild, wild days. Don't you feel like I feel?
About the Wild, wild days. Is it a dream is it real?
About the Wild, wild days.

Don't steal yourself away.
Oh no.

You said it in a strange kind,
I don't forget the day
Your smile is not the same now,
you've drawn your hands away
I don't begrudge it to you
You've found another place
Another place is good too
but I can't look inside your face
Inside your face ?now you get away

And now we shunt our train on to a siding
I see you wave your hand and disappear
You said come on and fly with me,
fly and then we'll dive
into an endless sea
And now you fly again,
I couldn't fly like you
And now I'm losing you

Pathos ?how the eyes gape
I've got blood in my hands
Thoughts about the promises
and all the tears that we have shed
Don't you let them use you,
be cautious when you dive
into the world around you
You've broken all the ties
All the ties ?now you get away

And now we shunt our train on to a siding
I see you wave your hand and disappear
You said come on and fly with me,
fly and then we'll dive
into an endless sea
And now you fly again,
I couldn't fly like you
And now I'm losing you

And when the land begins to call
The sprites they dance
The leaves they fall
The change's begun
and what remains
Not even thoughts ?not even names

We can remember can forget
We can achieve the highest aims
But we won't change the rules we're depending on
Now the freak of nature's holding up
the mirror to the haughty thoughts
Our brains are filled up
Don't you feel the earth is trembling to heal
the wounds we injured to her heart
The things are easy as they are

And when the land begins to call
The sprites they dance
The leaves they fall
The change's begun
and what remains
Not even thoughts ?not even names

And when the time begins to fade
The side-scene changes because it's late
We cannot keep ?we drop the ball
For now the land begins to call

You saw her standing at the gateway
with her hands in the clouds
But the higher she is moving
the more it gets you down
And she's waiting in the afterglow
With her eyes somewhere else
It's like she says:
"Don't let it worry you"

Was it just a warning
Someday you might awake
Maybe all inside of you
is not enough for what you take
Was it just a warning
Someday you might awake
And maybe all inside of you,
maybe you'll fail

Somewhere out where you are standing still
and shovel dust in the wind
Someone told you'd
better wait until the rain will begin
Maybe it's time for reflections
and the night endless long gives
you chance enough
to make believe it's going on

Was it just a warning
Someday you might awake
Maybe all inside of you
is not enough for what you take
Was it just a warning
Someday you might awake
And maybe all inside of you,
maybe you'll fail

No longer the same train
It's reelin' on a different track
No longer the same mistakes
And no more looking back
The station you're heading for
is not a place for me
I couldn't see the barriers
while I was standing in between

Finally
No longer the man I used to be

No longer the same ship
We were sailing on a different sea
No other apparent reason
to go down on my knees
We were runnin' way too fast,
but now it's runnin' off the rails
I couldn't see the exit
Not before the moment we were bound to fail

Finally
No longer the same shit
Finally
No longer the same train
Finally
Without you, without you
Finally, finally

No longer the fool for you,
no puppet on a satin string
No more excuses for nothing,
no more words that I don't mean
We were plantin' the same tree
but we had different leaves
Now the soil is dry
Let's end up this story
For another one to begin

Finally

Who's gonna cover me
when I shiver in a frigo
in a house of steel?
And who's gonna kill the pain?
Is it me? It is me!
Close my eyes ?pass the door

Walk up on a stormy, cloudy day
You can colour the grey sky, grey sky
Walk up on a stony, narrow way
Sun ?one fine day

Who's gonna follow me
when I leave a little trace behind?
And who's gonna call my name
when I'll attain a new land?
Close my eyes ?pass the door

Walk up on a stormy, cloudy day
You can colour the grey sky, grey sky
Walk up on a stony, narrow way
Sun ?one fine day

Looking at the surface
but the beauty is inside
I see the colours change
Should I bow myself and pray
Should I be afraid of bad news
Should I move myself or stay
Turn another page now
Don't you think about your constitution
Open the cage now
Ev'ryday's a revolution
Open the cage now
No time to weigh
I'll turn another page ?one fine day
