The Lyrics

Sinners and Lovers


This one’s for us
We know who we are

I think she’s here at last
At last I am sure she’s here…
I'm shutting now my eyes
And open up my arms…

Rain falls,
I know,
There’s no sound…
it feels like tears from heaven

All this hate,
And all our sins are washed out
So I dance in the rain…

Sinners and lovers
They all dance in the rain

Sinners and lovers
They all die as they dance in the rain

In Dreams We Trust


We might be seagulls at the ocean
Flying around free
We can have what our hearts desire
Or kiss the ones we miss

It’s not real and it won’t last for long
We might cry or smile when it’s gone

But in dreams we trust
​When nothing’s left for us
In dreams we trust
Cause if we try hard
​Dreams come true
To heal
The wounds you have for real
​To dream the unreal
Makes us want to live…

You might be a worker in a steel town
Who dreams of being a king
Or just a lonely person
That needs a tender kiss
It’s not real and won’t last for long
But sometimes it lasts as long as you want

Cause in dreams we trust
When nothing’s left for us
In dreams we trust
Cause if we try hard
Dreams come true
To heal
The wounds you have for real
To dream the unreal
Makes us want to live…

Freakshow


There comes a time
when I feel empty inside.
No one’s around
when I hit the ground.
But I work my way,
to keep darkness away…
Don’t get me wrong but I like
being alone, you know…

Cause there’s always someone trying
to bring me to my knees
To prove that I am wrong
and make me use the word “please”…

Well,
people go off
when they think they can pull your strings,
Make you look small
and play with your needs…

But I am not the kind to take that…
I am not your whore,
not anymore…

​I am the Owner, I am the Master
Of my body and soul
I don’t wanna take part
in your Freakshow

Some come with a smile and lay low for a while.
Soon they grow teeth and their bite will be deep.
That’s when I feel empty inside…
cause I wasted my time
I lowered my guard and this could tear me apart…

I am the Owner, I am the Master
Of my body and soul
I Don’t wanna take part
in your Freakshow

The Album Art

Angeline


Johnny drove out in the rain
She was hitchhiking down the road…
She said her name was Angeline
And Johnny told her to hop on

They spent all night on Bourbon Street
She wore his leather jacket
And by the closing of daybreak
She said it’s time for her to go…

Johnny said…

Angeline let me love ya
I can’t fix a broken dream
Angeline let me love ya
You can’t fake reality

He called her house, they said she’s dead.
Car accident - a year ago
But Johnny found his jacket warm
Laying down on her cold grave

He left this note…

​Angeline let me love ya
I can’t fix a broken dream
Angeline let me love ya
You can’t fake reality

Angeline let me love ya
I can’t fix a broken dream
Angeline let me love ya
You can’t fake reality

Pinups


Pinups

Ain't got no home

Intoxication


There is truth in this life
I know that I’ve been taught some truth.
There is lie in this world
I am sure that I’ve been taught the lie.

In any case, I know, to instill fear in my heart
“To speak now or forever hold my peace”
There is truth in this life
But I am sure that I’ve been taught the lie.

​Intoxication

There is right in this life
And I’ve been told I should be right.
There is wrong in this world
How come I’m told I’m always right?

​Is it a lie that I’m right when I do something wrong?
Or is it right that I’m wrong when I do something true?
​They call it Media.
They make a lie come true…

Intoxication

Lies
Using lies to prove they are not wrong.
Lies
The right ones to keep me under control.
And make me feel this hate…
And call it “truth”…
No need to know much…
Just their “truth”…

This goes on for so long
I can’t tell right from wrong.
This goes on for so long
I can’t tell right from wrong.

​With books…
With priests…
and all their politics…
TV…
TV…

This goes on for so long
This goes on for so long
I can’t tell right from wrong
I can’t tell right from wrong

Until The End Of The Line


It’s gonna rain, the sky is dark,
You stare at some kids playin' in the park,
You draw a heart
On your steamy window.

You’ve heard the news,
there’s nothing safe,
This world is changing day by day
this summer became too cold…

Once it was warm,
you were a child,
The world didn’t seem to be so wild
And then, summers turned so cold

Discovered love – destroyed friendships
Failure, tears,
and sorrow
And summers became too cold.

And now you’re falling
You’re carried away by the rain…
The train keeps rolling,
taking you away
Away and away
Until the end of the line

MMXIII(UK EDITION)

Damaged


Whores and angels
In rose gardens they walk
Holding hands while others gawk
Lips sealed, only eyes talk

My guardian angel
Flew away
To join a clan of long lost souls
A chain of broken down angels

Wings’ve been hidden
Plans’ve been made
To break through heavens
Seeking revenge

They were discussing
This Battle for power
One night at the meeting
When Lucifer spoke:

We are the underground
We’ll stay in the underground
There’s no caged way of life for us…

They are spoiled but we won’t be.
They are corrupted by their greed.
They are as damaged as they can be…

This is not me…

Hypnotised



The night was young
When the snake went on stage...
The venue was packed
And the snake began his mesmerizing tale...

He said
“There’s no one to call,
and nothing to fear…
Listen to my voice,
look into my eyes,
and everybody do as you’re told…”

It’s too late now
You’re hypnotised
It’s too late now
And hate dominated this jungle world…

It made the news
That was the idea…
He was called on TV
And at once the camera loved his face…

He said
“There’s no one to call,
and nothing to fear…
Listen to my voice,
look into my eyes
and everybody do as you’re told…”

It’s too late now
You’re hypnotised
It’s too late now
And hate dominated this jungle world…

No Cure For Love


You know I like having,
complete control…
But when I first met you,
You stole my soul…

You sucked me dry,
To the last drop of love,
You haunted my dreams,
Till I can’t carry on…

Now…
I feel empty without you…
Now…
Gimme something cause
I am sick…

But

There is no cure for love
And that’s a crime
There is no cure for love
Cause you’re not mine…

There is no cure for love
Don’t you see?
There is no cure for love
For what you’re doing to me…

Is it all in my mind babe?
Are we playing some game?
Are you gonna gimme some,
Ask for some,
And put the blame on me?

I didn’t wanna be the one
That had to lose…
You couldn’t have us both
So you had to choose…

Now…
Will need some time to fix me again
Now…
Will need a new drug to feel the kick

But
There is no cure for love
And that’s a crime
There is no cure for love
Cause you’re not mine…

There is no cure for love
Don’t you see?
There is no cure for love
For what you’re doing to me…
