Science fiction (Space Opera) I´ve landed on this planet some dozen years ago but yet I didn´t master life as one of its inhabitants I walk beside them and observe their strange behaviour which I don´t fancy anymore. So now I´ll have to leave! I´ve built a little space ship around my lonely heart and right tonight at midnight I will launch my stellar start My life is science fiction, Endless spaces to explore! I am this space ship´s captain, go where no one´s gone before I am this space ship´s master, it´s doing what I say I´m heading upwards to the sky, flying far away (- and if I want to burn this planet comes your judgement day) The streets are full of aliens with strangeness in their eyes. Don´t understand a word they speak, don´t know how I could blend me in If I could talk to you I´d tell you something: what you heard - about your world - is nothing but lies I am a shipwrecked prisoner on a lonely isle. Don´t know where I´m belonging to, no one seems to be missing me But now I know at least: I have a mission to fulfill: End this planets - misery and - sweep it from the sky I´ve built my little space ship inside my wounded soul, and right tonight at midnight will be launchtime for us all

Hello World 02:48
Hello World Strolling down a crowded street - feeling invisible, people bumping into me - it´s incredible I climb up a lantern post to - shout my name to you: Look up, people, hark who´s talking cause I want you to Hello World - is it me you´re waiting for - is it you I´m looking for or are we just deceiving Hello World – tell me is it truth I see: did you always wait for me and long for what I´m giving? I am not a humble person - I am mercury. Words are always part of my life - coming easily So I´ll talk to all the world now - like I always did. But how do I make them listen to my precious wit I am hanging on my post now - having all the crowd. People listen, all assembled, - wait for me to talk But as I can see their faces - I stop thinking tall: I can see the future and feel pretty small Love me – hold me – pay me – need me - hear me – want me

Because When I see you through the bottom of my wineglass you seem distorted and I´m suddenly afraid of the white foam you´re fluttering with the tablecloth threatening to swallow you and all that I love - Will some envious deity appear and crumple you to a featureless heap? I know you´d never leave me, and that makes me glad let´s go together through all ordeals You´re the rose in my charm and the salt in my soup the reason for my life, I couldn´t stand losing you - Will you disappear into a black hole provoked by our love´s quantum leap? Please please please please don´t go away please please please please please please stay Please please please please don´t leave the way please - because I´d lie for you, I´d die for you - I´d try for you whatever you want me to I´d cry for you, don´t ask why I do - I´ll always sigh with you because I love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love you. I can´t stand the thought you could be stolen away by life´s cruel twists.

Why Me 04:46
Responsibility is nothing you can run from It means you have to think ´bout anything you do It will cost everything of your own sweet comfortness It means that everyone´s responsible for all Go away – need you not – all alone – better off Why should I – care for you – you don´t care either – what I do Whenever you can run from something that is ugly You should turn on the spot and have a closer look Maybe you missed the sign on which your name is written And you will see that you´re the one to change the world World is dying – no one cares - Can´t alone make a change It´s just me, not your god - know myself - you´re the strange Inner voice turns in sleep - are you top of the heap Or just one little soul - obsolete in the whole Do you love me – I don´t love you - This is your song, not my groove I won´t try – why should I - be the first to make a move
5.
I see you 03:19
Oh how to start to - tell you what I have to: Never thought this would be that hard for me But I do crave you so – that you are the whole world for me Everywhere I throw my eyes - Every corner of my mind Every place I´m running to - I see you baby I see you I was a real person, I remember I once was able to - think, to speak, to make it Then you came into my world and everything changed - strange things happened to me I have waited too long - I have no time left to waste Or I will disappear from this world I can hear your steps right outside the door And I´m not gonna leave unheard - this would be the end Can´t remember if we´ve been together - can´t imagine how we´d ever be I just know that I will love you forever When I´m sitting in my favourite café I can´t enjoy my cortado at all Cause I´m only waiting for you to appear - Only thinking of what to say to you

I woke up in a dusty town today. Somebody should come with a vacuum cleaner Swallowed by a dry worm underground and met only dry mummies in there Cars going by with hot stink funnels, I try to breathe and spasm comes people babbling in my entrails, I have to run where I belong Leaving for the seaside - salty skin and bleaching hair. Living at the seaside - fresh fresh air Leaving for the seaside - listening to the waves´ concert. Longing for the seaside - oh fresh fresh air I only want to work but can´t today. somebody said a wrong thing after me again I´m hot and flustered cause I listened (fool I) and I`ll never be able to feel cool again I lock myself inside the bathroom and try to cry but my eyes stay dry I will have to drink an ocean to let salty water well up inside I´ll pack my suitcase when I get home, I´ll leave this dry town for good When I got there the first I´ll do is undress and with bare feet I´ll run along the sandy beach I´ll feel the wind caress my dirty lungs and drink the salt water until I´m mad That is what I need to feel alive again, I`ll do it tomorrow, I´m really set

The first one taught me how to kiss although he himself didn´t know He took me to rock gigs and the basketball court and gave me a necklace with a heart on – too short! He cried when I left cause he bored me to death. Love is utterly overrated -This one ain´t the one Everything´s said and done The second was some philosopher, He told me he knew what life is about I listened, said thank you and left while he read. I wrote him a note but took it with me cause that would have started a war And I won´t go that far The third one was really a pretty boy, A dancer, he knew how to move He tried to teach me what he thought I had to know and my mood making love was at an alltime low - but I learned a lot And he really was hot Are you waiting now for an happy end? That I finally found true love? Well, if I did I wouldn´t tell anyone cause lots of men are there under the sun and I want them to know that a girl can say no! Love is utterly overrated ---- Whenever I thought it´s the one I found out he was what I hated - So come that I finally stated: Love is utterly overrated, Everything´s said and done

I couldn´t tell you when we met first time about my strange and sometimes ugly behaviour When you found out at entirely the wrong time I couldn´t hide my jaws in the parlour I should have told you before but I couldn´t because I wanted you so it´s too late now, all said and damage done but I still want you I have to admit it came quite as a shock for you, I mean, well I knew that, you see, to get rather furry when we first made love and that love bite was quite a bad idea. What is so strange about loving my man Just because I am of the darker persuasion? If you excuse me for moonlit walks I can lead quite a normal liaision. I know you´re more now than meets the eye and my own carnal hunger grows love Never had dared to think you would approve but as special in mind as in muscle you´re tough I should have told you before but I couldn´t because I wanted you so it´s too late now, all said and damage done but I still want you Yes, I should have told you before but how should I know that I could trust in you it´s quite late now, night broke and moon will come and I do need you

Anybody 09:31
Anybody sees - my hands on the fader. Anybody tells me it´s - a cold of the mind Anybody seems to ask me - what I´m afraid of - Who´ll be mad and take my hands when I´m blind Anybody asks me why - I´m not cooperating - Why I do wait till - the sea is too loud Anybody tells me baby how I could live – if, Anybody tells me but I cannot get out Now anybody could just - pull my lever Without a reason take me - out of my mind Without a brain they seem just oh so clever What do they search and - what do I find I´m anybody - Anybody´s me - afraid of me Now`s just remaining what I have brought with - Anybody took - my luggage and ran Where I ´m going to I won´t need it any more - Anybody show me how much they can, Hey hey Anybody tells me I should look out of my window - Connect the team without a single shout But I killed the cat today and served the dog - Any- body take my hand and lead me out Anybody leave me upside down forever - Anybody run and kingdom come Anybody will connect me to Never Anybody save the bad boys hum - Mmhmm Anybody can do that in my favour - Anybody should release me from shout Anybody would if they weren´t so clever - Anybody show me how to get out

You Said 03:20
You said that you love me – o nono no you don´t You said – that you need me – o nono no you don’t You said – that you never ever leave me – o yeye yeah you did Baby I just wanna tell you something: never felt the way I do before This I why you hear me now as I sing That you are just rotten ter the core - But I´d never thought that you Would do the worst that you could do Take from me what I could give And leave me then to bleed and live Oh I hope that you can hear this song once, Oh it has to be a world wide hit So you can´t escape from my revenge chance, Can´t deny forever what you did Cause I´ll hurt you more than you Would ever think me able to I put your name on my bad side, Go on now, babe, find a place to hide

Going away 04:21
There's nothing left to say - you're better off all alone after me come the flood don't carry my luggage - won't need anything anymore don't wave me goodbye - I'm going for good I'm going away - I'm going away breaking all bridges - never been here to stay don't say you'd miss me, don't try to kiss me I'm going away - I'm going away (Good bye...) don't know what else to do - there's no chore left for me don't wait for me to come home I won't write letters from where I go. Won't look one moment back - I'm going alone I´m far way off the road - it's not on any map you know don't ask if you can follow me you wouldn't want to stay - you shouldn´t try ever to find me - I'm too far away.

Emma was strolling the streets everyday, We kids called her names and went out of her way Nobody knew if she was happy or sad, where she came from or how she went mad Ten day she was dead when her neighbours got scared. They opened her door and found her lying there on a filthy heap of thousands of pounds - she was a poor poor wealthy one This is the end of the world, This is the point from where there´s no return. This is the end of the world Maggie got into her car one day, she took the kids, but the dog had to stay Her husband was working, sent kisses by phone; she heard him ring; didn´t want to stay home The kids quarreled on on the backseat forever. She drove to a cliff far far over a river and when the road bent she just didn´t stop - the car went on and on over the top Nobody knows what his neighbour is thinking. Nobody asks why their windows are blind Nobody wonders what ships they are sinking - and nobody ever sees them die

Wavering the moonlight comes, Caressing softly my/her starving skin so Lost it seems so pale and shining While no one is watching me Whithering my/her flesh under the Cold rays of the moon I´m feeling Lost while I/she roll/s up (and) close/s my/her eyes to be alone I can´t sleep while I´m watching the moon, She looks like a hag, old forlorn, But I envy her for the peace and the light - I won´t say but most that all love her I say it aloud: “I wish I was the moon, I don´t want to lose anymore” I wouldn´t panic from getting old And nothing could hurt me again What is it for, anyway? What am I waiting for? /What are you hoping for? The moon in a sudden gets bigger and bright, And I feel sucked up by the silvery light My skin starts to wrinkle, to bubble, to ooze, Then crumbles, drying to stone My cry goes unheard while I´m soaring up And I settle in a cold huge rocky lump Staring down from heavens to a pale smiling lass That is curling up in my sheets. She made a complete change to my life, why, o why couldn’t I... And she seems happy, but something´s amiss: She also looks up with a longing eye So now I know what loneliness means, And I know I can never go back I watch every night the girl in my bones, She enjoys what I never had
