Track Name: lambs and wolves
LAMBS AND WOLVES

yes you are.
and yes you have to live your own life. You have to live it all alone.
when this time of peace and safety is over,
and you left your mothers arms

oh yes you have to take your own steps into the unknown, into the night

and the hardest part in all of this is to seperate the lambs from the wolves

we all know
life is too precious to waste it
its all we've got
there will be nothing left when this is gone

remember he said. that you'll loose your life when you try to keep it
and when you give it away, when you give it away you will gain it

and the hardest part in all of this is to seperate the lambs from the wolves

yes you will
be dead, someday
and i am sure they won't even remember your name
but he will
and when you hear his call
it's not in vein
not wasted, at all
Track Name: invisible
INVISIBLE

I am good at pretending my life is okay.
And I´m even better in not meaning the words that I say.

I am an invisible man in your world.
Oh that makes it even harder for me to leave mine.

I can't have your eyes looking at me.
I can't have your eyes not looking at me.

Your sincere smile means the world to me.

I am good at pretending my life is okay.
And even better in not meaning the words that I say.

I'm an invisible man in your world.
Oh that makes it even harder for me to leave mine.

I feel the weight of the entire world on my shoulders tonight.

is there a cure for this disease?
Is death alive when i'm healed

I can't have your eyes looking at me.
I can't have your eyes not looking at me.
Track Name: prisoner
PRISONER

Way Too long I laid down my head between these broken walls around me.

Why is it so hard to step out of the ruins and start breathing again, start living again.
Is it because of the dust, that veils my eyes?
Or the burden that is paralizing. I can barely breathe.

I am a prisoner of my past.
My wounds won't stop bleeding until I let you heal them.

As I see the sunlight gracing the boundles land.
I notice that the sun never becomes tired of rising and setting again and again.

This is why I pull myself together and start walking with my sore feet, moving with my sore body.

And my wounds, they start to heal as I decide to let you heal them.
Track Name: live
LIVE

when i look back from where i am right now.
i can't see a lot but regrets.
god forgive me for disregarding.

is everything prepared, all of this predestined?

if i only could withdraw decisions and make words unsaid.
would i? would i give desperate love instead?

is there any sense in starting once again when devastation is near,
when devastation is here.

i guess i'm loosing this war.
you see i'm shattered down on the floor.

i drowned like so many in this sea of abundance.

"don't give up and flee. don't believe what you're supposed to see."

the life you should have been living all these years is still waiting out there.
Track Name: confused and broken
CONFUSED AND BROKEN

confused and broken i'm standing at this crossroads.
And the certainty of taking the wrong way leaves me unsettled.
i have this sense of being blind or half way dead.

But this can«t be it.
Every single beat of my heart tells me that I«m alive.
And this can't be it
Every single breath that i take tells me that i am living

Even more in this abandoned place.

What if the wrong way is the right one in disguise?
and when i later look back i see you pointing on both ways.

it's probably not about which way we take but how we take it.

now i know it was always you reaching for my hand.
Track Name: misery
MISERY

as the rope slips through my hands all I can see
beneath the falling leaves
is a crowd clothed in black and misery

for all that remains is a body in a box
and memories in our hearts

and it hurts to see the bereaved
oh it hurts to be the bereaved

I am wondering how overwhelmed your eyes
are staring at what you see right now?

How humbly you fall to your knees
as you see the one who made you
as you see the one who saved you
face to face

all you can see beneath these growing trees
is the king clothed in light and love
Track Name: milestones feat. Thomas (Lasting Traces)
MILESTONES

Let me tell you that the life I have lived so far, was filled with moments, that last forever.
All these milestones, let them be good or let them be bad, made me who I am today.

Thank you my God for shaping this rough diamont. Every edge you've cut away, every edge you created/added made me even more complete.

And I know this is not the end.
I still feel this deep hunger for more.
More of life, more of you.

This is why I'm not afraid of all these sleepless nights (ahead). Because I know it is you shaping me, it is you teaching me, bringing me closer to you.

All these milestones, let them be good or let them be bad, made me who am today.

And I know this is not the end.
I still feel this deep hunger for more.
More of life, more of you.
Track Name: home
HOME

All I know is the war from inside

i am part of something i have never seen in its entire reach/shape

do i need to step out of that world to see what is inside,
what it consists of

All I know is the war from inside
I know the war from inside my heart

things look so different from afar
are they still the same?

there's a difference between being in the flame - or beside

I know the war from outside
I know the war from inside my heart


I do not see the sense in so many things, yet.
But for now I know it's about you bringing home inside my heart.
Track Name: speeches
SPEECHES

In hope I believe I will never let you go
I could never ever give up on you
for I know what you say is the truth
for I know what you feel is love

but right now I am looking into the wrong direction
this is not the right way - not the right path I´m on
and I´m asking myself when did I allow this to happen
how could this happen

maybe I heard too many speeches
which never got further than words
the ground was not solid enough
to ensure they would last forever
they simply had no meaning for me

I need freedom now
I need to make this clear on my own
Track Name: leaving
LEAVING

I am wearing out with every step, every breath, my heart is turning weak

My bones are breaking my whole body is shaking
And I am cold now for I am old now


God help me to make my way outside
for to see my makers hands guiding my last days, as he did my whole life

So there I stand and face/focus the horizon
and I get a glimpse of how you meant all of this to be.
Of how the world/live, that is to come will look like.
Maybe I'll enter tomorrow
Maybe I'll be there tonight

It feels as if my body is already leaving.
God I am ready for you to come for me.

This night I face/focus the starlit sky
and I get a glimpse of how you meant all of this to be.
Of how the world/live, that is to come will be.
I will enter tomorrow
I will be there tonight
