Track Name: Hiway Thru the Clouds
Hiway Thru the Clouds

I threw my cares away cause I don’t want them now
I made the engine whine and my motor cry
I threw my mind away cause I don’t need it now
And I took a long trip into the stars
I’m on a hiway thru the clouds

I got my motor running headed southbound free
I sold my soul to the furious scorching wind
Is it El Dorado cause I just can’t see
This hallucination damaged my reality
I’m on a hiway thru the clouds

High rise blocks under the sun in a hi-tech view
You stole my life or rather I gave it all to you
Now I must escape to find my freedom lost
Don’t mind the time, don’t care about the cost
I’m on a hiway thru the clouds

The final indignation, the last crusade
High tension wires wrapped around my blade
The smell of oil and gas in the air
Here I go, clean panic reigns
I’m on a hiway thru the clouds

They’ll bury me with my bike
On the hiway 66
They’ll bury me with my bike
On the new wide 66

City lights collapse
Under metal moons
I took it all away
I made it all too soon
I threw my mind away
It’s useless now
I made the engine roar
And my motor died
On a hiway thru the clouds
Track Name: Forever Searching
Forever Searching

Morning birds they fly away
Into their sunny days
And I am walking through the beach
Searching for a summer switch
To turn it on

The longer I search the less I find
I think to myself I must be blind
But give me time
And I'll surely see again

Mighty winds and heavy rains
And even the milky haze
Cannot stop me cause I must find
My own peaceful place
Where I can stay

The longer I search the less I find
I think to myself I must be blind
But give me time
And I'll surely see again

I asked the moon, I asked the sun
I asked the earth and the sea
Where can I find the wizard
Who's got the key to my mind

The longer I ask the less I understand
I wonder if you could give me a hand
And more time
So I'll surely understand
Track Name: Sugar
Sugar

I sleep for a million years
I cry with a million tears
I lie under a bed of scarlet
I die under a sky of violet

I sleep in a secret place
I cover my goddess’ face
I lie under a bed of scarlet
I die under a sky of violet

Sugar, sugar
Sugar, sugar
Track Name: Book on the Shelf
Book on the Shelf

There’s a book on the shelf
Everything is written there
All your deeds
All your words
Are written there
Everything you’ve done so far
And everything you’ll do

Everything
That you’re afraid of
And everything
That you approve of
Is there

In that book on the shelf
Written by no other hand than yours
Written by no other hand than yours
Written by no other hand than yours
Yours, yours
Everything is there
Yes, everything is there
You can’t hide, can’t hide anything

Everything
That you’re afraid of
And everything
That you approve of
Is there
Track Name: White Ship
White Ship

Rolling, creaking, damned is the White Ship
A drunken blackguard at the helm
A frosty night under alien stars
The captain's stoned, he don't give a damn
About the fate of his companions
Ragged corpses in the white-blue mist

The deck's ablaze with St. Elmo's wrath
Waters whirling like Poe's old verse
A succumb grasp on the sliced-up mast
A bloody orgy underneath the deck
Rolling into icy masses
Falling off the world's rough edge

Ahoy!

And there is no haven
That would take these outcasts
And there is no pleasant shore
Only rocks to guide them
And those rocks will take them
And those rocks will mean a home
For the winds for this ship are lead by Satan
Himself

The patrol midget screams „Land ho!”
Though all they get to see be moonlight
The patrol midget gets thrown off board
The sea screams „Blood!”, blood best be wild
Like a curse that's healing matter
Like a matter out of bone

Ahoy!

And there is no haven
That would take these outcasts
And there is no pleasant shore
Only rocks to guide them
And those rocks will take them
And those rocks will mean a home
For the winds for this ship are lead by Satan
Himself

Rolling into icy masses
Crashing into ragged cliffs
Track Name: Virgin of the World
Virgin of the World

Driving thru the highway of sun and steel
Golden towers gleaming in daylight
A city of the future and of our dreams
Is falling into pieces and crumbling it dies

Didn’t know it all will end this way
I suppose that now we have to pay
For the blindness
Virgin of the world
Mindless
Virgin of the world

Our world has lost its innocence
In the golden age of future past
Har-mageddon troops in killing trance
Army of tomorrow, loose and fast

Didn’t know that speed and war are one
Violence never heard about could be mine
Warriors
Virgin of the world
Soldiers
Virgin of the world

Hey there mister, take a look around
Little sisters, tell me what you’ve found
It’s a shield of chaos lying in the dust
For our right to live now fight we must
And the sky is pure and all the way
I’m going down the chronoglide skyway
Purple clouds and motionless stars
Hanging over dying buildings and cars
And the troops of doom arrive on time
Now it’s time to pay for all our crimes
Track Name: Esprit de Corps
Esprit de Corps

I feel a strange sensation
Running down my spine
We need a new direction
In our profession of crime
We are many and we stand as one
And we all know what to do
Many voices speaking in the cool morning air
To you

The age of atom has begun
Incrusted towers gleaming in the sun
And thru the metal factory gates
Micro-men are coming out
Radiation is messing with the crowds
Coming out, we’re coming out
Robot slaves march as one
Golden bridges hanging in the sun
We are one
The nationwide automatization
Soul utilization
Safe in your own protection
It’s getting worse
Esprit de corps…
Track Name: Kiss Me Deadly, Kiss Me Black
Kiss Me Deadly, Kiss Me Black

I'd like to tell you of this lover sorts of mine
little lover sorts of mine
a-just like wedding chime
just like wedding chime
she lives in lonely rooms, she never lends a hand
she lives in lonely rooms, lord she never lends a hand
ah, she never comprehends...
she never comprehends...
well-trained at little games
well-trained at little games
well-trained at little games
her hand like rusted nails
her hand like rusted nails
her hands like rusted nails
all locked up and frail
all locked up and frail
all locked up and frail
a little rose that went astray...
a little rose that went astray...
a little rose that went astray...

She comes-a-creepin' the inertia disciple
she touches further
she reaches lower....
she reaches deeper...
She comes-a-sweepin' the inertia disciple
in love with a mirror that's bleak just as she is
ah through gothic chambers
through gothic chambers...
through gothic chambers...
right back through that door...
right back through that door...
right back through that door...
Edgar Allen would blush if he've heard her speak
I hear her speak
I hear her speak…
I hear her speak…

She locks herself up, she locks herself up
she manifests her beauty in an outrage of fury
she come-a-creepin' lower...
she come-a-creepin' lower
comes a-creepin', lower
all locked up, in love with herself
all locked up, in love with herself
all locked up, in love with herself
and it was I, the solemn writer, who put that lock on her
the key don't fit...
the key don't fit...
the key don't fit...

the rusted door...
smash through that door...
smash through that door...
she comes-a-sweepin'
her hair's all ringin' through the bathroom floor
her hair's all ringin' through the bathroom floor
I've heard her go
I've heard her go...
I’ve heard her go…

Kiss me deadly now, kiss me black
kiss me deadly now, kiss me black
be the bridal artifact
a bridal artifact
a bridal artifact
come along this nuptial bed
come along this nuptial bed...
peel off that innocence
peel off that innocence
peel off that innocence
inertia starves...
inertia starves..
ah-beauty dies...ah-beauty dies
all beauty dies...
all beauty dies…
inhale the bleakness, inhale the bleakness
avoid the sickness, inhale the bleakness
a-till-you want no more
a-till-you want no more
till you want no more...
till you want no more…

All good god's children dance in circles
All god's children dance in circles
All god's children dance in circles
All good god’s children dance in circles
while sanity glows like a panicked moth
like a panicked goddamn moth
cunt declared to flame
cunt declared to flame
cunt declared to flame
I've seen the nails in your lover’s cross
his semen...
your wine
his semen...
your wine
ah he does it all the time
he does it all the time
semen into wine
a water-into-wine
a semen-into-wine
a water-into-wine
he does it all the time
I hear her speak...
I hear her speak...
beat out her silence
beat out her silent cunt
