Journey To Myself

 

1. Now And Forever * ** (Jubelt)

Profitís your salvation and money is your god
No matter whatís the damage or the lives it costs
I was close to death Ė weaker with every breath
But where moneyís strong the weak is always wrong

Donít tell me to shut my mouth
I speak the truth and I speak it loud

I will go on
The pain made me strong
Now and forever

Iíll go my way
No matter what you say
Now and forever

On the edge of ruin you come to realize
Who you can rely on and what you need to survive
Now Iím back on my feet Ė a witness to your deceit
We know your lies: greed comes in disguise

So try to see through my eyes
All your abundance donít make you wise

I will go on
The pain made me strong
Now and forever

Iíll go my way
No matter what you say
Now and forever

I will be strong
I know where I belong
Now and forever
 

2. Journey To Myself * (Jubelt)

Do you wanna come with me on a trip?
Where demons lurk behind every turn
Weíll travel through a most hideous landscape
Where good and evil ainít easy to discern

Come and join me
On a journey to myself
Itís a hellride
The journey to myself

We pass a black lake that shows my past
cross a mountain of rage and hate
crawl through an evil forest of fear
on a road of thorns that leads me to my fate

Come and join me
On a journey to myself
Itís a hellride
The journey to myself
 

3. Autumn * (Jubelt)

Autumn comes around
Cold winds, dirty town
I stare through the windshield
As the rain comes down

I hope it washes away
My sorrow of yesterday
This kind of wishful thinking
helps me through the day

Autumn creeps inside
As I drive through the night
Autumn creeps inside
Ohhhohh, ohhhohhh

Thoughts begin to sweep
Fingers getting weak
My mind is so damn tired
But I donít want to sleep

So much we could have seen
So much we could have reached
But it all had to vanish
Like our footsteps on the beach

Autumn creeps inside
As I drive through the night
Autumn creeps inside
Ohhhohh, ohhhohhh
 

 

4. Premonition (Instrumental)



5. Pt 1 Ė Disenchanted World * (Jubelt)

Childrenís eyes, innocent and pure
filled with wonder by all that is new
Behind each tree hides a fairytale
But the system put evil in the magic vale

Do you wanna live
in a disenchanted world?
Damned to survive
in a disenchanted world

Science and politics
pulled the enchanting veil away.
Each riddle has been solved
thereís no secret to lead you astray

Tell me, do you like it
in a disenchanted world?
Damned to survive
in a disenchanted world

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
But nobody takes time to behold anything
And beautyís gone because no one cares for her anymore
Everything is transparent and revealed
So what is your purpose?



6. Pt 2 - Cybermind * (Jubelt)

Flickers from the TV screen
Penetrate the eyes so blind
Reality or fantasy
I donít mind, I donít mind
Poison childrenís eyes
Poison childrenís minds
Avoid independent thought
And leave a slave behind

I wanna leave this world behind
I wanna be a cybermind
I wanna leave this world behind
Let me be a cybermind

Rebellionís obsolete
Letís stimulate the brain
Another thrill, another kill
Virtual blood donít stain
I donít care about your world
as long as I float with the stars
For my life of sex and drugs
straight death is more bizarre

I wanna leave this world behind
I wanna be a cybermind
I wanna leave this world behind
Let me be a cybermind

Culture is abuse!
Manipulate! Confuse!
Life is prostitution!
I cry for retribution!



7. Pt 3 - Beyond Control * ** (Jubelt)

I was looking for a world I could control
While I was trying not to be controlled
by power, money and society.
Which of your decisions are really free?

From the respected to the lowest of the low
we all try to live beyond control
Now Iím back to hard reality
And now I know my enemy

Ohoooh
Live life beyond control
Be alive beyond contol

The one unsolved mystery
is this complex weird humanity
I want to read you like a book
from your handshake to the way you look

Use my wisdom for better or for worse?
Is my knowledge a blessing or a curse?
I want to touch your soul and take you by the hand
and let you see beauty again!

Ohoooh
Live life beyond control
Be alive beyond contol

Beyond hate and beyond fear
Another purpose is getting clear
Beyond despair and beyond pain
Not all your deeds are done in vain



8. Entzauberte Welt * (Bonustrack) (Jubelt)

Kinderaugen, unschuldig und rein,
Sehen nicht die Wahrheit, sehen nur den Schein
Hinter jedem Baum ist Zauberei versteckt.
Doch der Mensch hat idas BŲse erweckt.

Willst du hier leben?
In einer entzauberten Welt
Zur Existenz verdammt
In einer entzauberten Welt

Forschung und Politik
rissen den Zauberschleier fort
Jedes Rštsel ist gelŲst,
Es gibt keine Wunder mehr an diesem Ort.

Sag, gefšllt es dir?
In einer entzauberten Welt
Zur Existenz verdammt
In einer entzauberten Welt

SchŲnheit liegt im Auge des Betrachters,
doch niemand nimmt sich mehr Zeit etwas zu betrachten.
Und SchŲnheit ist aus der Welt geflohen, da sich niemand mehr fŁr irgendetwas interessiert.
Alles ist durchsichtig und enthŁllt.
Was willst du noch hier?

 

9. Autumn Instrumental Version

 

 

Cheat Yourself

1. Messines * ** (Jubelt)

Dig the tunnel and bury the mines
The plan is to break the enemy lines
Spread and hide the spoil at night
From the flying enemyís eyes

Shells and bullets fill the grey sky
Itís only chance if you live or you die
Artillery fire prepares the attack
Once we charge there is no turning back

Deadly loads underground
Destroying the trenches
Fireballs break the ground
And our attack commences

Desperately we want to conquer the ridge
Time for ignition! Just flick the switch!
19 craters is all that is left
And 10.000 soldiers found their death

Deadly loads underground
Destroying the trenches
Fireballs break the ground
And our attack commences
 

2. Adam's Regrets * (Jubelt)

Wish I held her in my arms,
like I held her many times.
But she left paradise.

Now Eve is my wife
Submittive and nice,
but passion holds no fire.

Cry it out Ė Forever
Cry with you Ė Together
Cry it out Ė Oohh-ohohhhh

Cry it out Ė Forever
Cry with you Ė Together
Cry it out Ė until I die

I see our lives are empty now
Lilith roams the night,
a demon of the dark

To leave was her choice.
But I was betrayed
of a glorious life.

Cry it out Ė Forever
Cry with you Ė Together
Cry it out Ė Oohh-ohohhhh

Cry it out Ė Forever
Cry with you Ė Together
Cry it out Ė Oohh-ohohhhh
Oohh-ohohhhh
Oohh-ohohhhh
Itís no lie
 

3. Somethings Never Change ** (Jubelt)

Itís been ten years now
since autumn winds blew cold
The days close in again
We meet in sorrow

When fate took the lovers lives
The innocent and the unborn child
But innocence never helps you
when youíre the next in line to die

In the mourning maze
I see your face again
And I realize that some things never change
So dry your tears
I dried mine years ago
One day you find that some things never change

All the memories come back
Pictures of joy and laughter
Remind me of what I missed
and left me empty ever after

So much they could have seen
So much they could have reached
Under the stars they lie silently
Now their stars are out of reach

In the mourning maze
I see your face again
And I realize that some things never change
So dry your tears
I dried mine years ago
One day you find that some things never change
 

4. Cheat Yourself * (Jubelt)

Beyond the grey horizon
is a new rising sun
Is the nightmare over
or has it just begun
Fog is crawling,
playing with lights.
Cool air surrounds me.
I think I won the fight.

Take your hate and yell it the moon.
To heal a heart ... takes time.
Cheat yourself and sing another tune.
No reason to cry and whine.

Now thereís just another memory
Of what might have been.
The end of a story
That didnít even begin.
We fall apart into You and Me.
Will there ever be a chance for a We?
 

5. Under Fire * (Wachenfeld/Jubelt)

Broken heroes walking through the night
Firing guns all around
Shredded bodies rotting everywhere
Spilled blood on the ground
A mourning at the battlefield
Sky is black from the smoke
Iíll be passing to the afterlife
A life without war

Jump and run, the war is there in front
Friends are falling now
Pain and hate and dying all around
Slaughterhouse of fear

Is it real or is it nightmare
I donít know where I am
We are fighting hard together
Hesitate to kill
Someone is commanding others
All will follow him
Thereís no contrary opinion
Riddle of the sin

Men against the fire
Burning their desire
Men against the fire
Burning their desire

From trench to trench guardian angels fly
Faster than the speed of light
Guns to feed, thatís why we are here
Youíre the last in line

Is it real or is it nightmare
I donít know where I am
We are fighting hard together
Hesitate to kill
Someone is commanding others
All will follow him
Thereís no contrary opinion
Riddle of the sin
 


Men against the fire
Burning their desire
Men against the fire
Burning their desire

Suddenly a hit, blackness fills my eyes
Now itís time to die
Heaven or hell, itís all the same to me
Ďcause my conscience failed

Is it real or is it nightmareÖ

Men against the fireÖ
 


6. Faster Than The Speed Of Light * (Jubelt)

Dictators and tyrants tremble on their thrones
Rebellion in the streets has begun

See us marching, fists up in the air
Courage is born from despair

Faster
Our armies strike
Faster
Take back our pride
Faster
Fight for our rights
Faster
than the speed of light

The power of the people spreads the lands
Religions united hand in hand

Pray for those who died in our campaign
Their sacrifice must not be in vain

Faster
Our armies strike
Faster
Take back our pride
Faster
Fight for our rights
Faster
than the speed of light
 


Corroded

1. Church Bells * (Wachenfeld/Jubelt)

When night falls around us
Nightmares come alive.
The anthem of death the only sound.
Thoughts of dying
haunt your soul,
only refuge is holy ground.

When church bell rings
Frightened creatures

The sound of the church bells,
The summoning.
The frightened hide in this place.
A priest in black
Will save your soul.
Evolution of the cross.

When church bell rings
Frightened creatures

At night
Can you see me smile?
When you close your eyes,
When you must die?
Dark,
never feel the pain.
Come to me again
in a spiders web.

Eternal life
is not for free.
The price is to obey.
Salvation and
freedom
are not the same.
But what
is the better way?

When church bell rings
Frightened creatures
will hide
 


2. Maximilianís Dream * (Jubelt)

The king dreamt of chivalrous ideals
Glorious knights like in the old tales
A strong force in battle and a guide for all men
But the old virtues could not prevail

Honourable men, mighty and brave,
a light that shines for us all

Ohhh ohohhh
With waving banners we will ride
Ohhh ohohhh
Holy crusaders, glorious knights

Invincible warriors in the fight with the sword
had no chance against the silent death.
Bows and arrows slew the knights from afar.
The age of chivalry drew its last breath.

Honourable men, mighty and brave,
a light that shines for us all.

Ohhh ohohhh
With waving banners we will ride
Ohhh ohohhh
Holy crusaders, glorious knights


3. Feels like broken * (Thomaszik)

In my heart and in my mind
I am feeling so sad
While searching Iím loosing
My behaviour is getting so bad

It feels like broken
It feels like a different view
It feels like broken
It feels like going down

Being on top of my life
I was walking down the mountain
Felt if I, if I was flying
But I learned that Iím falling

It feels like broken
It feels like a different view
It feels like broken
It feels like going down

Over and over blood runs down
Like tears from heavenís gate
Falling, hurting, donít understand
My heart doesnít awake

It feels like broken
It feels like a different view
It feels like broken
It feels like going down



4. No More Visions ** (Jubelt)

Dumb mules, trained for just one purpose,
We labour for the green machine.

You are allowed to choose what you consume.
Thatís the meaning of democracy.

There are no more visions
We are trapped in our minds

There are no more prophets
We are all the same
And we are blind

We watch the shadows dancing on the wall
And take it for reality.

We are afraid to turn our heads
and see what human eyes can see.

There are no more visions
We are trapped in our minds

There are no more prophets
We are all the same
And we are blind


5. Corroded * (Jubelt)

The System is corroded
The system you wanted to change
Corrosion spread to your ideals
Thereís not much left of your plans

So good
So wise
Solemn
So full of lies

Here we are, deliver your speeches
Assure yourself you can talk
Even though your words mean nothing
We search the wisdom you havenít got

So good
So wise
Solemn
So full of lies


6. Chapters 2007 ** (Jubelt)

There was no war or I must have lost it long ago
Whose fault it was, today nobody knows
Feelings disappeared like morning mist
Thereís nothing left but sadness now even once it was bliss

So here I stand, losing or winning
Is it the end or a new beginning

A chapter closed, another opens
A time to cry, a time to smile
Sometimes you bend but youíre not broken
And even the hardest rain only lasts for a while

Some words never should be spoken
Those foolish promises that are surely to be broken
About a future and life and staying together
Donít you know
that feelings may change like the weather

So here I stand, losing or winning
Is it the end or a new beginning

A chapter closed, another opens
A time to cry, a time to smile
Sometimes you bend but youíre not broken
And even the hardest rain only lasts for a while

So here I stand, and now Iím winning
Itís not the end, itís a new beginning

 

Morning Nightmare

1. Morning Nightmare * (Wachenfeld/Jubelt)

A million stars are rising
A most exciting race
Far away from here
Really lost in space

Suddenly a ringing
My life jumps back at me
My dream is sleeping peaceful
My open eyes must see

Morning nightmare, daily war
Weird horror, silent snore

Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare comes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare goes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare comes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare goes


A morning in the mirror
The same as yesterday
The face of an old man
Iíll wash the night away

My hair is wild and crazy
A flavour, taste of shit
Hunting through the business
And time is killing it

Morning nightmare, daily war
Weird horror, silent snore

Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare comes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare goes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare comes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare goes

Wait for the evening
Enjoy the darkness
I will be sleeping
Right here and now

Long day before me
Twelve hours to go
Time runs slowly
I canít ignore


Morning nightmare, daily war
Weird horror, silent snore

Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare comes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare goes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare comes
Dreamland voyage, morning nightmare goes



2. Revealed ** (Jubelt)

Iím more than sober now
I can see it all too clear
Itís all right before my eyes
A state of wisdom without fear

I should have known it all my life
But today I realize

I can see myself without a mirror
Now the sickness is healed
I understand and it all makes sense
The secret is revealed

No more wandering in the shadows
The
curtain is lifted from eyes
I can see it in bright daylight
No one to fool me, no more lies

I tried so hard to understand
Now the solutionís right at hand

I can see myself without a mirror
Now the sickness is healed
I understand and it all makes sense
The secret is revealed



3. In Metal We Trust * (Jubelt)

You said we wonít last but still we are here
We make a lot of noise and we drink a lot of beer
We turn our amplifiers loud
So sing with us - raise your voices loud

In metal we trust
The feeling is right
In metal we trust
And scream through the night

You call us sinners Ė weíre surely no saints
Donít judge me - live up to your claims
We donít want forgiveness for what we have done
If you know you live once you better live for fun

In metal we trust
The feeling is right
In metal we trust
And scream through the night



4. Waste Our Life * (Jubelt)

Too many thoughts but no solution
The fate of knowledge only confusion
The danger of wisdom is to go insane
Once you know the end of the game

We waste our life on thoughts that never pay
We waste our life on thoughts that never pay

The sun goes down to rise anew
But who knows what we will do
When once we have to say farewell
Is it gonna be Heaven or Hell?

No final truth
To explain life
Just make sure
You stay alive

We waste our life on thoughts that never pay
We waste our life on thoughts that never pay




5. Dark Light *** (Jubelt)

Your heart is beating wild
And your veins are about to burst
Are you under a spell
Or are you under a curse
A glimmer of hope
Is shining pale in the night
A shade of illusion
Itís monochrome...and all you see is...

Dark Light...shining bright in the midnight hour
Dark Light...creatures with a creep
y power
Dark Light...like a beacon in the storm weíre burning
Dark Light...wheels of metal keep on turning

You are hypnotized
by the sound in your head
And itís leading you forward
It almost driv
es you mad
Your world is spinning
Youíre screaming within
A swirl of emotions
You lose control...and all you hear is...

Dark Light...shining bright in the midnight hour
Dark Light...creatures with a creeping power
Dark Light...like a beacon in the storm weíre burning
Dark Light...wheels of metal keep on turning
 

 

Under Fire

1. Under Fire * (Wachenfeld/Jubelt)

Broken heroes walking through the night
Firing guns all around
Many bodies lying everywhere
There is blood on the ground
Mourning at the battlefield
Sky is black from the smoke
Iíll be passing to the afterlife
A life without war

Jump and run, the war is there in front
Friends are falling now
Pain and hate and dying all around
Slaughterhouse of fear

Is it real or is it nightmare

We are fighting hard together
Hesitate to kill

Men against the fire
Burning their desire
Men against the fire

Men against the fireÖ


2. Chapters ** (Jubelt)

There was no war or I must have lost it long ago
Whose fault it was, today nobody knows
Feelings disappeared like morning mist
Thereís nothing left but sadness now even once it was bliss

So here I stand, loosing or winning
Is it the end or a new beginning?

A chapter closed, another opens
A time to cry, a time to smile
Sometimes you bend but youíre not broken
And even the hardest rain only lasts for a while

Some words never should be spoken
Those foolish promises that are surely to be broken
About a future and life and staying together
Donít you know feelings may change like the weather?

So here I stand, loosing or winning
Is it the end or a new beginning?

A chapter closed, another opens
A time to cry, a time to smile
Sometimes you bend but youíre not broken
And even the hardest rain only lasts for a while

So here I stand, and now Iím winning
Itís not the end, itís a new beginning

A chapter closed, another opensÖ



3. A Single(s) Day * (Thomaszik)

Flying through the sky
And riding on the earth
Time passes by
In little hourglasses, but why?

Diving into the water
Arms hold me tight
Only to feel somebody
Who helps me to hide

The air, the sky
The world, deny
The water, the ocean
And peopleís emotions

Walking through the fields
Of sorrow, far away
Needles of pain will follow
But theyíll never be the same

The air, the sky
The world, deny
The water, the ocean
And peoples emotions


4. Braindead ** (Jubelt)

Where is your honour?
Where is your pride?
Put me in misery
For your delight

Did you want a heart?
Or did you want a fuck?
You better stay out of my way
Or I may fuck you up

Braindead

Are you human?
Do you have a brain?
Then start thinking
And stop playing your game
(With me)


I hear your sweet voice
Asking how I am
Why do you still call me?
You think youíre still my friend?

It took some time but
I can face my life alone
I donít need you anymore
Thank God that you are gone

Braindead

Are you human?
Do you have a brain?
Then start thinking
And stop playing your game
(With me)


5. Autumn í97 * (Jubelt)

Autumn comes around
Cold winds, dirty town
I stare through the windshield
As the rain comes down

I hope it washes away
My sorrow of yesterday
Itís that kind of wishful thinking
That helps me through the day


Autumn creeps inside
As I drive through the night
Autumn creeps inside
Woohoo woohoo


Thoughts begin to sweep
Fingers getting weak
My mind is fucking tired
But I donít want to sleep

So much we could have seen
So much we could have reached
But it all had to vanish
Like our footsteps on the beach


Autumn creeps inside
As I drive through the night
Autumn creeps inside
Woohoo woohoo
