Angels Arise

Angels arise
as night must fall
And radiant eyes
Stare down on as all
If the powers that be
Be beyond our call
Then angels arise as the night must surely fall

And for every pit of darkness
There’s a light that so pure divine
And I ask you to protect me
From those gasps and shutters and
Those shivers down my spine

There are things that must be magic
There’s no explaining why or how
And there’s every sign that once upon a time
Is starting here and now
There’s ever sign…

 

 
   
 

Original Sin

I’ve been looking for an original sin,
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I’ve done all the old ones
till they’ve all been done in
Now, I’m just looking,
then I’m gone like the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin
(Turn around…)
(Turn around…)
I’ve been waiting for you since you’ve been born
I’ve waited patiently, but not for long
And since I know all your dreams,
I understand what you need
And when I call you, you must go where I lead
Your dreams are so hungry
It’s time now to feed

So I bless you with my curse
There are ties that you must sever
You’ll be better when you’re worse
You must die to live forever
I will show you the depths of the night
We can never go wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
My love is like a shadow on you

(Every now and then, I hear a voice)

And since I know all your dreams,
I understand what you need
And when I call you, you must go where I lead
Your dreams are so hungry
It’s time now to feed

 

 
   
 

Garlic

We live in constant danger
There’s evil in the air
Some people pray
Some run away
Go crazy with despair
Bring us one more bowl now
We want more, you’ve got the goods
And another bottle, right away,
You’ll forget what’s in the woods
We’ll forget what’s in the woods

Garlic Garlic, when times are tough and grave
Garlic Garlic, it’s a remedy we crave
Transylvania is scary
One cannot be too wary
For with garlic we are saved
With garlic we are saved

The days are disappointing
The nights are even worse
The cows are scared
The sheep are wary
Out lives are simply cursed
We dance as if we’re happy
We sing as if we’re fine
But the simple fact, is simply that
We’ve gone and lost our minds
We’ve gone and lost our minds
Garlic Garlic, the secret of staying young
Garlic Garlic, that’s why we’re so well hung
What’s strong is getting stronger
What’s long is getting longer
With garlic on your tongue
With garlic on your tongue

We’ve simply lost our minds,
We’ve simply lost our minds,
We’ve simply gone, we’ve simply gone
And lost our bloody minds!

Garlic Garlic, the secret of staying young
Garlic Garlic, that’s why were so well hung
What’s strong is getting stronger
What’s long is getting longer
With garlic on your tongue
With garlic on your tongue

Garlic, Garlic, it’s the nourishment we crave
Garlic Garlic, when times are tough and grave
Garlic Garlic, it’s a remedy we pray
Transylvania is too scary
One can not be too wary
For garlic we’ll be saved
From the cradle to the grave
With garlic we’ll be saved

 

 
   
 

Logic

You think I haven’t got a clue,
your cringing makes me weary
Its time I introduce to you
my fundamental theory
Logic, logic
the world is based on logic

When I was but a little boy
a sitting on my mammas knee
A visionary thought I got
as pure as trigonometry
Logic logic,
the answer is logic

So to Heidelberg I travelled
at the tender age of seven
All my courses I unravelled
by the time I turned eleven
Using logic ( logic)
I became petagogic

My thinking's clear my visions firm
illusions can’t delude me
This early bird will catch his worm
you simply can’t elude me
Put me to the test
and you will find
You can’t mess
with this professors mind

With a logic unmistakable irrational reality
Your stubbornness I’ll shake and break your confidentiality
My skill is unsurpassable
my thinking truly awesome
Yet I do become irascible
with people playing possum like you do

I was sticking out my neck
with such impeccable detection
While deflecting all the threat
that you direct in my direction
I came all the way from Heidelburg
to undertake my final quest
To save your suicidal burg
I’ll do my level-headed best for you

You may be a simple pigeon
but you’d fly like a toboggan
If you only had a smidgeon
of the knowledge in my noggin.
Now you lose this simply query
when I execute this high kick
I’ll elucidate this theory
with a logic almost psychic like I do
To detect the undetectable
is what you can expect from me
Dissecting the respectable
just like an appendectomy
My brain is like a razor
contemplating the confusion
Ripping deep into the haze
and wide polluting the delusion this is true!

All:
Always thinking rather logical to cause a revolution
He won’t give a damn, no not one bit about your revolution
And his theory is so radical
and certain so far reaching that a permanent sabbatical
For preaching what he’s teaching

Our professor is the pips
Shooting from the hips
So we need to get a grip
For letting people dip
This song sure is a pain
Are we going all insane
And we never will change what's logically true
faithful and true!

 

 
   
 

Never been a night like this

Alfred:
A girl as beautiful as she
I have never seen
A girl as beautiful as she

Sarah:
A boy as beautiful as he

Alfred:
So disarming

Sarah:
Charming

Both:
I have never ever seen

Alfred:
There's never been a night like this
Since my life began
The thing I'd do for just one kiss
I might never understand

Both:
I'm too excited, I can't sleep
I'm awake, yet I dream
My heart's ignited with a deep burning ache
And I dream
A lovely dream

Chagal:
I've never had a night like this
And it makes me sad
Oh Magda
A maid as beautiful as she
I have never ever had

Magda:
I've never had a night like this
And it makes me mad

Rebecca:
I used to have some nights like this

Magda:
This emptiness, not happiness

Rebecca:
Now I miss what I once had

Magda:
That's all I've ever had

Alfred & Sarah:
I am delighted Heaven sent you to start something new

Rebecca & Magda:
Nothing is ever sent for me

Alfred & Sarah:
Wish I could fight it but I can't for my heart belongs to you
Fantasies come true

Alfred & Sarah:
Lord, if I ever fall in love let it be just for me
Lord, if I ever fall in love let it be someone as glorious as she/he
And eternally
I'll wait breathlessly
Let it be

 

 
   
 

Don't leave Daddy

When a man has got a pretty daughter,
Then his life is pretty filled with pain
Cause she never does the things he taught her
It’s enough to drive a man insane
It’s a pity that I must conceal you
Though you’re lovely as a budding rose
But there’s always someone out to steal you
You can’t see them but your father knows

Sleep my little darling
Dream my tender starling
No one must awake you
No one must a take you
You’re not ready
I’m not ready
We’re not ready
Don’t leave daddy

Now you’re looking forward to your birthday
You still think that it is fun to grow
But to me your birthday is a curse day
Cause it means you’re old enough to go

Sleep my sweet confection
Papa’s your protection
No one must confuse you
No one will abuse you
I’m not ready
You’re not ready
No one’s ready
Don’t leave daddy…

 

 
   
 

Invitation to the Ball

A good nightmare comes so rarely,
While ordinary dreams are so easy to find,
A good nightmare comes so rarely,
I'll show you yours,
If you show me mine...

You can choose to stay here,
and be a good wife some fine day
But will it ever be enough?
You know it’ll never be enough.

You can work and pray here,
Till you’re fat and old and grey,
But will it ever be enough?
You know that it’ll never be enough.

It’s not enough to make your yearning go away,
It’s not enough to light your tired eyes,
It’s not enough to put some passion in a dreary day

Everything that they told you
was nothing but lies,
Everything that they bought you
was nothing but bribes

And I know that you want more,
All you wanted was a piece of the night,
So come along and take your share,
Stop your searching everywhere,
Cause the answer’s here,
I invite you to the ball of your life,
Of your life...

There’s so much more to the night,
There’s so much more to the night,
The beauty of darkness,
Miraculous lands,
You’ll get it all
if you give me your hands,
Give me your heart
and your soul will take flight,
Forevermore in the night...

This is your chance,
This is your time,
Break all the chains
and give me your hand,
Give me your soul
and your heart will take flight,
Forevermore in the night,
Forever mine in the night,
There’s so much more to the night...

A good nightmare comes so rarely,
While ordinary dreams are so easy to find,
A good nightmare comes so rarely,
I’ll show you yours if you show me mine...

 

 
   
 

Death is such an odd Thing

Rebecca:
He was my master
He was my lord
Now ever after, he’s stiffer than a board
Death is such an odd thing
Death is such an odd thing

Magda:
When he came near me,
He groped and he clutched
Now, I can touch him without being touched
Death is such an odd thing

Both:
Death is such an odd thing
When he lived, there was repulsion
Pure disgust and then revulsion
But as a corpse he’s calm and coy
Like a little sleeping boy

Magda:
Isn’t it funny?
Maybe its not
But he’s so frigid,
And he used to be so hot
Death is such an odd thing
Both: Death is such an odd thing

Rebecca: It’s so ironic
Magda: It’s so ironic
Rebecca: Totally droll
Magda: Totally droll
Rebecca: He used to use me
Magda: He used to use me
Rebecca: Now I’m in control
Magda: Now I’m in control
Rebecca: Death is such an odd thing
Magda: Death is such an odd thing

Both:
Death is such an odd thing
When he lived, he was offensive
His libido was entrancing
Rebecca: As a corpse he’s soft and fat
Magda: Like a fine aristocrat (ow!)

Both:
Isn’t it senseless?
Fills you with fear
We’ll go on living
But he’ll never be here
Death is such an odd thing
Death is such an odd thing
Death is such an odd thing

 

 
   
 

Braver than we are

Alfred: I will never sleep, every night I’ll be with you
There is so much on your mind that I don’t know
Feels like I’m on fire, and the flames have got no mercy
The fevers never ending all it seems to do is grow

Sarah: There are times I want to run
Times I want to hide
Things I’ve left undone
Things I cast aside
So many things to try
So many things denied
A: There’s no denying
S: Sooner or later, I wanted to run now
Sooner or later, it’s finally come now
How can we fly,
like the angels in the sacred air
Higher and higher,
above the world and all its cares

A: Everybody’s ready to fly,
but the storms are never so very far
And I wish my life was shining like a star,
but the fears are never very far
And we always seem so much braver than we are
We always dream we’d be braver but we never are
S: I need so much
A: I need your touch

S: I am sick of this place and this cold
I don’t want to get old without living
I am tired doing just what I’m told
I want more than what anyone’s giving

A: I’ve waited forever for now
S: And I need to go fast; show me how
A: So many days have been lost
S: And we’ve both paid the cost
A: There’s nothing to be sorry for
S: Now we can have so much more

A: Now I can be close to you
B: Nothing we are scared to do
We always seem so much braver than we ever are
We always dream we’d be braver than we ever are
Let’s run away, go too far

S: I will never sleep,
now my heart has been awakened,
I feel the yearning
for a single perfect touch
I can’t afford to wait,
or the magic will be taken
I don’t want to lose;
there can never be too much

There are times I want to run
Times I want to hide
Things I’ve left undone
Things I cast aside
So many things to try
So many things denied
And now I know it’s sooner or later
I wanted a chance now
Sooner or later is here
I can dance now

Weightlessly free,
I’ll be reborn if I only dare
They’ll be no more boundaries anywhere
VK: Do what they will never permit
And don’t ask if you’ll regret it tomorrow

S: My life is finally shining like a star
I can leave those fears right were they are
Leave those fears right where they are now

VK and S: How can we fly like the night birds in the darkest air
Higher and higher above the world and all its cares
We run away
S: Away from here

 

 
   
 

Say a Prayer

When temptation comes to call
The soul can lose its way
And the angels start to fall
Only prayer can save the day

Say a prayer for those who crawl
Say a prayer for those who run
Say a prayer so after all,
There’s a better life to come

Say a prayer for those alone
Say a prayer for those apart
All those hungry boys and girls
They're crusaders of the heart

Say a prayer for all the lost
Say a prayer for the unborn
Say a prayer for all the young
It takes a fire to keep them warm

Say a prayer for those obsessed
Say a prayer for those enslaved
Say a prayer for they’ll be strong
From the cradle to the grave

Say a prayer for all the saints
Say a prayer for all the sins
Let the dancing never end
Let the future now begin

Say a prayer to all the gods
Some are near and some are far
Say a prayer to all the gods
Make us braver than we are

 

 
   
 

Come with me

Come with me and bless the night
Let the darkness be your salvation
Curse the day, escape the light
Break the chains of imagination

Come with me and you’ll know love
We will show you and we will teach you
Take my hand and learn from us
We will touch you and we will reach you
And you will live forever
You will live forevermore
Forevermore…
