Track Name: Gold
Gold

I bathe you in Arabian foam and taste you like some French champagne
You’re gold
You come to me in evening’s glare and lust is all your eyes declare
My gold
You’re gold
To me you’re gold

You rode with me to Africa in sun of ages we did dance
My gold
A treasure waits for those who seek and long and pray and kiss and keep
Their gold
You’re gold
To me – your gold
Track Name: Behind the Veil of Isis
Behind the Veil of Isis

Behind the Veil of Isis
At the verge of her light
Through curtains dim and heavy
I've seen her shine bright

Behind the Veil of Isis
The boogie never ends
The dancing feet are stomping out
The rhythm of day

Behind the Veil of Isis
Sits the 13th tribe
To watch Osiris crowned
When the time finally comes

Hide all the guns away
Waiting for the brand new sun
Break down all the fences
Waiting for the brand new sun

Behind the Veil of Isis
The bottom is above
And when you pass the guardian
You'll bathe her in love

Spinning through the Dark Rift
Crown the Tree of Life
Waiting for the Age
Of Aquarius to come

It's been said by many
It's written in the books
It's been told by the sages
It's been told by the fools

Throw away your ego
Waiting for the brand new sun
Feel the call of ages
Waiting for the brand new sun

Behind the Veil of Isis
The silent mellotron plays
Bringing joy to the living
Putting death in her place

The magnet heart is glowing
With energy not seen
Before in this world
That's so mean

Behind the Veil of Isis
Life speaks to those who hear
Some of us are deaf
Even if they have two ears

Watch out for the signs to come
Waiting for the brand new sun
And bow your head to Isis
Waiting for the brand new sun
Track Name: Any Permanent Way
Any Permanent Way

Taste of Roman wealth
In the wilderness
Marble chairs and tables
Dead in emptiness
Gather round your pride
See your monuments
Feel the stain of men
Ageing sentiments

There’s no judge or jury
Where your feelings play
Standing in the shadow of
Any permanent way

Frost of winter stars
In the wasted wild
Treasure you once held
Pleasure left behind
You go in and lose
Everything you had
You remain a skull
In the orchard mess

There’s no judge or jury
In the morning clay
Drowning in the silence of
Any permanent way

In the mirror man
Solid emptiness
Flesh the ugly smoke
Soul the lover ash
Real atrocities
Of the human pain
Nothing will survive
No one will remain

There’s no judge or jury
On the final day
Just another victim of
Any permanent way

We’re all looking for
Any permanent way
We all hope we find
Any permanent way
Track Name: Hippie
Hipis

Jestem młody, odgarniam włosy
Świeci słońce, chce się żyć
Zakładam dzwony, biorę lufkę
Dziewczyna, lato, łąka i seks

Zamiast siedzieć dzisiaj w szkole
Zrób coś, co ma sens
Wypij piwo, zapal trawę
Ułóż riff lub napisz wiersz

Rób to, na co masz ochotę
Zdejm zegarek, niech godziny płyną
Bądź człowiekiem, nie robotem
Wyrzuć notes, nic nie planuj
(to przyjdzie samo)

Po to mam swoje życie
By z nim robić to co chcę
Czuję się znakomicie
A ty mówisz mi, że robię źle

Palę trawę, słucham Budgie
Ona nie chce, a ja tak
Wszystko wre, jeszcze chwila
Czekam na pieprzony znak

Powiem jej, że ją chcę
Zobaczymy co zrobi
(Yeah!)
Track Name: Winds of Thor
Winds of Thor

We travel the seas of north
Searching for adventure and fame
But we also want to get gold
In case if we'd have to buy the game
Buy the game

Oh ho ho ho
The winds of Thor
Oh ho ho ho
The winds of Thor

Lead us thru those mountains
Lead us thru valleys full of gold
Lead us thru lands of plenty
Where the icy rivers glow
Rough and cold

Oh ho ho ho
The winds of Thor
Oh ho ho ho
The winds of Thor

Lead us thru our rivals
Lead us thru storms
And icy mountains
Where cold winds blow
Cold winds blow

Oh ho ho ho
The winds of Thor
Oh ho ho ho
The winds of Thor
Track Name: Wild Honey
Wild Honey

She's paranoid
She's a tramp
She's oh so bored
She crosses a bend
Couldn't cross it
If even try
Cannot kill her
She musn't die

You can't have wild honey
She walks her own special ways
You can't reach wild honey
If you don't know the game she plays

I confess
Shouldn't do it
Here comes the man
Come on let's do it
If you told her
You will be dead
Makes no difference
Makes me glad

You can't have wild honey
She walks her own special ways
You can't reach wild honey
If you don't know the game she plays
Track Name: Alleygates of Sin
Alleygates of Sin

Silver gates are darkened now in eternity
Cigarette burnt to the end lies on the ground
And all the things that are and that will possibly be
Make me smile and soon I'll lose my mind

Alleygates of sin

I don't move unless I need another shot
So I seek gently for my pulsing vein
Cigarette burnt to the end, black underwear
All I need is electricity to my brain

As I ride the alleygates of sin
Alleygates of sin

Read a story in a paper and I'm really scared
Cause there's a whole expedition already prepared
They wanna capture me and make me god
Cause they need somebody for a TV spot
God?
Ha ha hahaha ha

Alleygates of sin
Alleygates of sin

My hair is long but my brains are short
Getting high is my favorite sport
I got no muscles to prove my power
But anytime you call me I'll find a free hour

As you ride the alleygates of sin
Alleygates of sin
Sin
Sin
Sin
Track Name: Warrior in the Sands of Time
Warrior in the Sands of Time

I stand on top of the mountain
Stars shine at my feet
I am the cost I once paid for freedom
I rule infinity

Left to die in the sands of time
Where life is born of dark
My helmet shines in the rusted sunlight
And my sword gives a spark

I am the warrior in the sands of time
I am the warrior in the sands of time

To every planet I bring news of freedom
I sail galactic fleets
I am the devil that will know no peace till
All the worlds are free

Winds of time are blowing thru me
I breathe the sunwind breeze
I am the master of all worlds
I am eternity

I am the warrior in the sands of time
I am the warrior in the sands of time

Time, warrior
Time, warrior
Time, warrior
Time, warrior
Track Name: Cemetery Rose
Cemetery Rose

Her voice is in my head
It leads my feet today
It’s confident & loud
But it speaks in a soothing way
I listened to that voice
And went walking in the night
I woke up in a graveyard
With a black nymph by my side

Cemetery rose, cemetery rose
Cemetery, she’s my sanctuary
Cemetery rose

Her eyes are hallow lakes
The sun don’t ever shine
But she’s electric love
And her darkness made me blind
I listened to her voice
Tried to catch every single word
She speaks of us in beauty
We’re our own paradise world

Cemetery rose, cemetery rose
Cemetery, she’s my sanctuary
Cemetery rose
Cemetery rose, cemetery rose
Cemetery, she’s my sanctuary
Cemetery rose

The distant tolling bells
Amid crimson painted trees
Make beauty rise to fly
And sinners fall on their knees
There’s locust in your mailbox
And a tiger at the gate
You scream and ask for help
But I think that it’s too late

Cemetery rose, cemetery rose
Cemetery, she’s my sanctuary
Cemetery rose
Cemetery rose, cemetery rose
Cemetery, she’s my sanctuary
Cemetery rose
Track Name: Hero on the Wing
Hero on the Wing

As a kid I used to watch the airplanes land
One pocket full of marbles, the other full of sand
I lived nearby the airport and I wanted to fly
Become a pilot fighter in the cool chrome sky
I’d be a
Hero on the wing
Hero on the wing

I dreamt about the stars riding my bike
My grandpa used to tell me of the borderless sky
I wanted my own spaceship traveling the moon
Become a cosmic warrior in this age of doom
I’d be a
Hero on the wing
Hero on the wing

I’m sitting once again on my grandma’s knees
I’m hearing fairytales and they set me free
I wish I’d write my own but I’ve no time to lose
I wanna be a pilot, I wanna sing the blues
I’d be a
Hero on the wing
Hero on the wing

Now I’m still I kid and I choose my roads
Leading to the sky and the universal chords
Play within my soul like a symphony
I’m a pilot and a warrior in eternity
Yes I’m a
Hero on the wing
Hero on the wing

I’m floating with the wires on sundown haze
I know the right way out of this human maze
I’m only a transmission, I’m forever young
You hear me on the radio, you sing my songs
Cause I’m a
Hero on the wing
Hero on the wing
Track Name: Strange Skies of Blue
Strange Skies of Blue

I’ve seen the cobalt in your breast
I’ve touched the essence then
And it was good
Then it was good

I’ve seen the radar under your skin
I’ve lost directions then
But it was good
Then it was good

Under strange skies of blue
Under strange skies of blue
Under strange skies of blue
Under strange skies of blue

I’ve painted all the stars white
I’ve seen the fractured eye
I think ‘twas god
I think ‘twas god

Under strange skies of blue
Under strange skies of blue

Are we lost to anyone else but us
Are we tied unto the fence
Are we tied up to the face
Behind your eyes
Are we lost to anyone else but us
Are we tied unto the fence
Are we tied up to the face
Behind your eyes

I’ve seen the wind blow so hard
I’ve lived in a lighthouse then
I’ve seen the birds die in flight
I’ve lived in a lighthouse then
And it was good
So good

Under strange skies of blue
Strange skies of blue
Under strange skies of blue
Strange skies of blue...
