Track Name: The Enemy
Enemy of man
Enemy of life
Enemy of trees
Enemy of children
Enemy of swans

Enemy of faith
Enemy of grace
Enemy of girls
Enemy of mothers
Queens of this world

I will not stand for love and honey
I will only hate you all
'til my body wants to die
'til my body needs to die

Enemy of peace
Enemy of light
Enemy of stars
And of creation
Enemy of art

Enemy of fear
Enemy of pain
Enemy of God
Enemy of Satan
Lord of this world

I will not stand for greed and money
I will only lose it all
'til my body wants to die
'til my body needs to die

Must we really accept this world?
Is not this torrent much too cold?
We are kids that just get old
You are broke and unemployed
Yet you think that you are
Preserved from the deadly storm
But I know that we are defenceless
Track Name: Submersible Words
Never heared and never read a line
'cause a single word can bring me down
Tried so hard to walk with head held high
But a single word can bring me down

And my mind is overwhelmed with grief
And nowhere can I find relief

Losing all behind the border
Behind the line

And a single word can bring me down
The guiding light became the light that blinds
And a single word can bring me down

My mind is overwhelmed with pain
Can this universe be just a brane?

Losing all beyond the border
Beyond the line

There will always be hatred
A man is a man
And a powerful force of destruction

All we need is higher reflection instead of
Submersible words, submersible words

There will always be hatred
A man is a man
And a huge amount of frustration

All we want is primitive affection instead of
Submersible words, submersible words
Track Name: Chest
When the wind
So coldly blows
Through the heart of Man
I retreat
I stay alone
The pearl inside the shell

Calm and mute
Just growing old
As idle as a stone
A never moving
Fugitive
Hunters unknown

I don't want to see the world today
I don't want to hear a voice today
All the hearts and all the bodies are grey
We can't justify existence this way

Little crowd
I only want
To make you bleed and die
Empathy
Passed away
I'll never changed my mind

I never really
Understood
Why we need to live
A fight for food
And younger prey
And nothing to achieve

I don't want to see the world today
I don't want to hear a voice today
All the hearts and all the faces are grey
We can't justify existence this way

I don't want to see the world today

We never talk we never talk
In our chest a worthless heart
We only do what we've been told
There is no beauty in this world
Track Name: Grand Gendarme
I need some holidays
In my life I feel so bad
I just want to meet the mountain goat
Cold rock will make my day
I want to climb a grand gendarme
Just one false step and my life is over

I need some holidays
In my life I feel so bad
And I'm sick and tired of this flat horizon
An eagle calls my name
Gliding 'round the grand gendarme
A sudden storm and my life is over

I wander
The sun is getting colder
And I wonder about a better life
Called lightning
Called lightning and thunder
The ridge is inflamed
The ridge is on fire
Track Name: Black Horse
Moon
Silver mother
Gleaming on gleaming on gleaming on

The wolves and thieves, the soil and me
We have a strong request for thee

The rain and wind, the dead and me
We have a strong demand for thee

Leave us alone
Turn away from this world
Leave us alone
Turn away from this world

Let thy silver light

Fade out
And teach the people what darkness means

It means riding a great black horse
Track Name: Joseph
Our little baby died
He was such a clever child
When you held him in your arms
You held a gift of God

You were such a glowing mother
Glowing love for your son
I tried hard to be a father
But in emptiness he's gone

Our little baby died
He was such a clever child
When you held him in your arms
Mother Mary by my side

You were such a glowing mother
Glowing love for your son
I tried hard to be a father
Now in emptiness he's gone
Track Name: Uncomfortable Life
Cannot sleep without dreaming
Dream about this world, how trite it is
Makes me feel so awkward
And makes me wish I could just disappear

And when
The day
Begins I feel shame
And a shade in the bedroom
Awakes
This uncomfortable life goes on life goes on

Daily life is oppression
A never-ending merciless migraine
Cannot go any further
I don't even know if there's a way

And then
The night
Begins and a shade
Full of shame steals a bottle
My dreams
Are dead and this empty life goes on life goes on

One day you told me there's no shadow where there's no sun
Where are you now? You left me so alone
And this uncomfortable life goes on life goes on
Track Name: Courageous
I want to live another life
To speak the truth and do what's right
But right or wrong I never know
I see existence from below

Before my eyes a world too high for me
I'm such a tiny man

You hold something that flourishes in your hand
I'm a destitute man

All these wasted years I left behind
All buried in the sand

I want to live another life
I do nothing but I get tired
I bite my nails until I bleed
A solid heart is all I need

What's plain to you is so obscure to me
I'm a discordant man

I don't know why I always feel so blank
I will never understand

I know we can't be more than flesh and bones
As I live in fear of dust

I hear it coming closer everyday
Is that swan song?

For the rest of my life
Won't be scared anymore

I want to be courageous
Like a rock in the freezing wind
I want to be courageous
Track Name: For the Man that I love
I wish I was made for the man that I love
I wish I was made of steel
I wish I was made for the man that I love
I wish I was made of steel

You're driving like a boy
And laughing like a boy
Disturbing like a boy

And you'll never
Let me sleep in your bed for the rest of our days
Deeply embraced

I wish I was made for the man that I love
I wish I was made of steel
I wish I was made for the man that I love
I wish I was made of steel

You're driven like a boy
And reason like a boy
And question like a boy

And you'll never
Let me sleep in your bed for the rest of our days
Deeply embraced

I wish I was made for the man that I love
I wish I was made for the man that I love
Track Name: God rules his Empire
We are weaklings and cowards
Just ordinary men
We're attracted to fire
But don't want to get burned
We deserve all your contempt
Why are you so involved?
There is something about you
That I don't understand

He knows we are credulous
He knows how to lie

We're awaiting a message
Waiting for a sign
All we have is self-loathing
Bitterness in our mouth

He knows everything we need
He knows how to lie
He knows that animals bleed
God rules his empire

Relief – far away
Reward – far away

Far away
