Track Name: Lullaby
Loving mother:

Try to sleep my tender dreamer,
Feel my touch, my skin so warm.
In my arms your body is rocking
At the rhythm of my breath.

Come on!…close your eyes…
I’ll stay the whole night
To take care of you
While your dreams come true.
Track Name: Self Introduction
Let me introduce myself.
Some people think that I’m a common man
But I’m here to tell you the truth,
I'm gonna tell you how the story goes through.

I haven’t got my own dreams,
I have to steal yours
I’m only a dreamers’ thief
( I ) have to steal your
Gotta steal your dreams
I haven't got mine
That's why

I have never seen
Fishes dancing on the clouds
And I’ve never heard the trees
That whisper so loud!

And my spirit turns
Into a crazy, creeping sea
And a woman I don’t know
She cries and
She lies for me
Hangin’on her dreams I can feel
Unreal colours over me

But I know
You’ll wake up
And my visions will stop

You’ve gotta keep on dreaming for me right now
You’ve gotta keep on dream on on on dream on on on …

The first time
I noticed what was I
My brother slept so close to me
That my lips
Were kissing his skin

In a while
I was in such a diferent place
That still today
I can see it clear as a summer day

Then a music
Started to play
From a wooden box…
( I ) recognized that sound
So close to me.

When I looked
My brother stood
Like a piece of rock
With eyes made of gold
But he could not see me.

And my voice
Rose to your ears
No sign on you
( I ) can't help but thinking:
“Can you hear
sounds from my lips?”

And your steps
That walk on through
My body nude
( I ) can’t help but thinking:
“Can you feel the touch of my skin?”

I was like air to him!

(You) cannot see me
(You) cannot hear me
(You) cannot touch me
(You) cannot heal me

I can see you
I can hear you
I can touch you
I can change your dreams.
Track Name: A beautiful morning: The ruling / Wandering and Wondering Days
Sunbeams dancing on the streets
Life smiles in front of me
Like laughing children by my side
I feel a smooth joy deep inside

Mornings like this make me think
‘bout the things I really need
The sun is here instead of night
I feel a smooth joy deep inside

Grass is playing with my feet
Morning dew covers the leaves
It’s beauty only for my eyes
I feel a smooth joy deep inside

But the night is loyal partner
Always comes and fills my pain
Like a hopeless sterile rain

(bis)

When frozen darkness
Replaces the day
Stars keep on singing
Though I am deaf
Sing song of dreamings
I cannot dance

How can I hear them
When I’m alone?

When won’t I need
Another soul?

When will I dream
Dream on my own?

And those were wandering and wondering days. Our little friend woke up one morning after one of those white, endless nights with something new on his mind. He knew what to do with his life. He was gonna spend his life time searching and looking and waiting for a golden and perfect and golden and perfect spheric dream to live it in. He touched hundreds of skins night after night, but no golden dream was found. Only a mix of desires, nightmares, and wills instead. But one night he had a chat with a drunk old man and he said:

Drunk man: “Do you wanna hear a story?. It’s about a man that can make your dreams come true. You've just gotta be cruel enough to find him..to find him..Do you wanna know his name?. His name is The Lorring, The Lorring, The Lorring….”
Track Name: The Golden Dream Appears
While the crying moon is knocking
At my door
And the silence comes and tells me
“Where are you from?”

(bis)

The blue darkness seems to be
All over my skin
I’m close to find my golden,
My perfect dream

I can feel
It’s getting closer
I can feel
I’ve been
So desperately in need…
I’ll do anything for you,
My golden dream


Through a window warming fire
Lights the room
And a baby dreams so peaceful
Watched by the moon

Then the shadows seem to be
Another part of me
I’m sure I’ve found my golden,
My perfect dream

I can feel
It’s getting closer
I can feel
I’ve been
So desperately in need…
I’ll do anything for you,
My golden dream

It’s easy to get into you
The nightmares are still away
You have no place to hide
I’ve got a dragon here and it’s ready to fight

Now I know my treasure is beating here
Somewhere in your mind

The air has become so thick
( I ) can hardly take a breath
I’m afraid a nightmare is here, near
But this time I’m the one
Who’s gonna keep the place

Now I know my treasure is beating here
Somewhere in your mind
Track Name: Under your flesh
I’m outside…
Mangled, tired and tender
Something heats my chest
My heart is now on fire

But your frozen little face
Reminds me my sad duty
There is only a way
The cruelty guides my hands now

Under your flesh
I’ll read the way that takes me to my aim
Through the fields of pain
I shall cross to reach the holy man
That can make this dream reality
I’m on his hands

It’s so unfair
What Lorring has demanded me
Using that old drunk man
He put me on the track to find him

Only dreamer’s pain and death
Are enough to satisfy him
Now I wonder if I can
Be so cruel that people shake
only hearing my name

Under your flesh
I’ll read the way that takes me to my aim
Through the fields of pain
I shall cross to reach the holy man
That can make this dream reality
I’m on his hands
Track Name: Lorring´s Reward
Lorring:

Don’t I look as you expected?
What did you want to see?
No time for old fairy tales now
I know why you come to me

There’s something I have to warn you
No way back you will find
The changes will be forever
Are you sure you want to start?

Take my hands now! Come to me now!
Let me see what’s laying inside your dream…
…yes, it’s here…
…so shiny under its cover!
now I'm gonna set it free
You have proved me you deserve it
I’ll make it reality

You have been so much ambicious
As only a human can be
So many death and destruction
Will have a reward from me

Take my hands now! Come to me now!
Let me see what’s laying inside your dream…
…yes, it’s here…
…so shiny under its cover!
now I’m gonna set it free
You have proved me you deserve it
I’ll make it reality
Track Name: Deliverance of an Oppressed Town
The Leader:

Let me introduce myself again
I should admit that I’m a different man
A different body in a different world too
I’m gonna tell ya how the story goes through

I have to lead an army
Of hungry people
Take them to victory,
Beat the evil,
Give them liberty!

The People:

He's gonna take us to victory!
He's gonna take us to victory!

The Leader:

Smells of death float in the sky
My people move according to my mind
Their dirty brown rags crawling on the wet mud
Like killer puppets pendant from my hands now

I have to lead an army
Of hungry people
Take them to victory,
Beat the evil,
Give them liberty!

The People:

He's gonna take us to victory!
He's gonna take us to victory!

(musical battle)

The People:

And The Leader saved the land!
And The Leader saved the land!
Track Name: The Rotten City : Days of Sweet Illusion Will Be Born / An Orgy
The Leader:

Now that the crowd is sleeping
I look at the rotten city
And can't help but scream and cry
I feel like dying
And bad…

A strange fog flows through my hands
Trying to catch a single special man
I´m afraid we´re on an end dead road
If your spirits only crowl and crowl…

Now that the crowd is sleeping
I look at the rotten city
And can’t help but scream and cry
I feel like dying
And bad…

I…
Gave you freedom and
what have you done?
Waste your stupid lifes
While running out of time!!


Now that the crowd is sleeping
I look at the rotten city
And can't help but scream and cry
I feel like dying
And bad…

All that I know a new land must be waiting for me
I’ll take all the men, children , exploring while still they can stand

A new age has just begun
Only adventures on their souls
A star came from the sun today
Just to show mw the right way

……but…..what should I do with my present town?…..It will take years to find my paradise and come back…Am I gonna let it die?…For sure, NO!

Now come to me
And wake up the band
And let the music play loud for me

With your flesh
Our empire will last
Conceive your child
No matter how
Just say goodbye
28 days and nights
your bodies are twisting,rockig, heating…
Pleasure is here
Just take and see
And feel it hard
And feel the blood
Beating and saying goodbye…
Track Name: The Lass and the Soldier
The lass:

I heard the news
You’ve got to leave
Our leader wants you to go with him
To a place you’ll never find
Like all the men in town

The lass and the soldier:

Looking at you now
I cannot believe
He’s gonna take you apart from me

Hold me,
Feel me,
Take my breath
Out of me

All I know I'm gonna wait for you,
I swear you,
And our love is gonna grow up strong

The lass:

Till you come back

Every night I’ll pray
For the hundred seeds
That still are living inside me

If only one of them
Can become your eyes
To see me again

The lass and the soldier:

Waiting,
Longing,
Sighing,
Dying a bit

Every night
The moon will be
The mirror where
You can find me

All I know I’m gonna wait for you,
I swear you,
And our love is gonna grow up strong

The lass:

Till you come back to me

(bis)
Track Name: Last parade : Frozen Pinnacles
Oh, when I´m
Looking back
And I see the fallen men
Time seems to
Never end
I have lost the way back home
I have lost my way back home

All for a dream!
Such a fool I´ve been
Its not me

From this high,
Frozen climb
Where the coldness has killed ours
Is where I
Try to think of the
Days that now has past
Of the
Days that now won´t pass

All for a dream!
Such a fool I´ve been
Its not me
Track Name: The Coldness Sings
The coldness:

Try to sleep my tender dreamer
Feel my touch, my skin so cold
In my arms your body is rocking
At the rhythm of my breath

Come on, close your eyes
I’ll stay the whole night
To take care of you
While your dreams come true
