Track Name: Claustrophobia
Tender shall I sleep
While my dream is still pure
And mine, only mine

Wandering through a mist of
Frozen trees, cast in ebony
I pine away into the abyss of my existence

Darkness! Embrace me!
No need to resist
We are slaves from the cradle to the grave

Tender shall I sleep
While my dream is still pure
And mine, only mine

Flying on angelic wings
I try to find true happiness
While clinging on
My savage thoughts

I have saved myself
Crashing…
Falling down
Into the pool of vivid imagination

Tender shall I sleep
While my dream is still pure
And mine, only mine
Track Name: Longing
And there you stood in Dionysus’ Parthenon
Your looks warmed me, as the wine flowed on
Longing for a diversion on a sultry spring evening

The dance of love veiled by...the light of the moon
My sorrow is aching and I know now...grief will start soon!
If only it could be eternal…
All I have left now is my pain, which is infernal
Longing…

Floating on a breeze through the white night
We watched a delightful world of pleasure and delight
Longing for a diversion on a sultry spring evening

The twisting of your virginal white peaks
The soft velvety skin on your cold cheeks
Scents of perfume floating from your long hair

Your longing glance surrounded by sheer blue light
A long kiss and you disappeared into the night
All I have left now is a memory, a longing vision of a dying dream
Of a fucking dying dream....it’s my dream

All I have left now is a memory
A longing vision of a dying dream
Longing…
Track Name: Nectar of Desire
He’s bedazzled by
The beauty of her skin
So soft and gentle,
Yet she has no faith within

With eyes wide open
She teased and kissed him
She lures with her nectar of desire

The garden of Eden
Is a theatre to the Gods
Her nectar is luring
To seduce the empty soul
The apple of wisdom
Her gift for mankind’s sin
Causing shame and penitence
Within, within, within....

Fountains of grief
Are flowing in my mind
Forgotten images
Yet our past is hard to find

With eyes wide open
Sifting through the filth
I keep on wondering
Is it love or is it guilt?

Chill cuts through skin
Hated, Shivering
The black cloth is stained
Eyes crusted, red!

A shovel, a stone
Sharp stalks on the fields
A tiny flower mocks
Or bravely celebrates!

He’s bedazzled by
The beauty of her skin
So soft and gentle,
Yet she has no faith within

With eyes wide open
She teased and kissed him
She lures with her nectar of desire

Desire…
Track Name: Three Stages of Being
Ohm Ah Guru Namo Amito Hum

Visualize the body
Translucent as a rainbow
The three stages of being
My spirit, a drop
I am a traveller to the pure lands
The channel, the path
Dharmakaya near my lord’s heart
My destination

Scalp: Avalokiteshvara
Heart: Dharmakaya
The egg, The dome
Of white and oval light

May all creatures enjoy
The purity after the ritual
Spirit-drop, my heart, my soul
My body is like a bird
Spirit drops, into the core
Body dissolves in air
Drips and drops will drift
Fingers dissolve in water
Through all the lower doors
Closed and I reach
The pure land of the Buddha
Track Name: Sacred Ground
Candles are casting shadows
They’re dancing everywhere
walking down the aisle
Your eyes start to stare

These tears stain sacred ground
A soul was lost, but now it’s found

If you give me your blessing
Then I will kiss your feet
Tell me, are you willing
To share my every need?

These tears stain sacred ground
A soul was lost, but now it’s found

I recite those lines
Which I hold so dear
I cherish those words
Would you shatter them in fear?
When I light a candle
All becomes so clear
It burns up my hand
I want you here

These tears stain sacred ground
A soul was lost, but now it’s found
Track Name: Strangers
On the run for these Gods
We hardly could see
Called the System or Power
Or Religion or greed
We are met by procedures
By your angels in blue
With no fucking idea
About what or ‘bout whom

To make us feel at home
We are put behind bars
To narrow for daylight
To wide for the stars
But we’re merely strangers
No aliens, you know
So don’t close your eyes
‘Cause they won’t let us show

No paradise for us

Some nice civil servants
Accidentally smiled
They call us by numbers
Send us back as a file
The cleaner the skill
The smoother the lie
The softer the kill
And still silent they cry

No paradise for us
Track Name: Throbbing Pulse of Death
In a merry-go-round of colours
Life whirls by and Jama appears
From some hidden dimension
Behind wooden horses
And smiling clowns
He laughs with his fangs
Wears a chain of grinning skulls

Throbbing pulse of death
Crumbles the pillars
On which house and home are built
Oh merry-go-round my simple heart
Just fill it up, with liquid lead
The throbbing pulse of death

Skulls cave in, I broke the chains
Liquid ash seeps into the earth
Jama/Psychosis
Sunrise of the soul
The throbbing pulse of death

Oh, ikabao, blue sword
Cut through the black
Through strings of karmic puppetry
Swallow the five poisons and laugh
Embrace the enemy
That hideous metaphore
The best and worst of self
Track Name: Still the Sun
Gentle weather and blue skies
On the day when
The earth hugged you forever
Mommy carried
Your tiny reed basket
From birth to never…never

And still, the sun…

Cool green grass
And a thousand songbirds
Perform the soundtrack
Of the big farewell
The basket sunk
In fertile earth
Crumbs clung to our feet

And still, the sun…

Don’t be sad
We’ll soon catch up
Until soul and silence
Will merge us all
Just one quiet moment
Without green and song
And still the sun

And still, the sun…
