Lyrics »A Kind of Art«

by Carsten Püttmann, except [06], [08]


[01] Sunmoon

 

See the moon is black, see the moon is red

I don't mind if you were dead

Someday I know I will forgive all my friends

But you're not mine, you're not my friend

See the sun is black, see the sun is read

I don't mind if you were dead

Someday I know I will forget all my friends

Forget all their fears, forget all their tears

Climb inside of me

Look around and you will see

What burns deep inside of me

 

[02] Sojuz I - The Death of Komarov

 

Hi, it's me, so take care

For yourself and your heart and soul

It's not useful to denied myself

And so I sent a little prayer

To all my friends, to all my lovers

To all my mums and all my fathers

I'm what I am

Can you help me to understand?

And I'm ashamed, I'm passionate too

Do you here the silence Whispering to me?

It's sounds like a Little prayer

To all my friends, to all my lovers

To all my mums and all my fathers

I'm what I am

 Can you help me to understand?

 

[03] Silent Sway

  

Switch on the light

There's something wrong inside of me

Maybe you know a way

To come back to what I am

Switch on the light

And be the guide into myself

Nothing is real

But the truth is inside of me

Turn on the sound

Don't be afraid of what you hear

It's your own voice

Speaking in tongues about yourself

I'm on the way to myself

To a place where we can meet

Come hear the silent sway

You lost in me

Don't be afraid of what you see

It's your own face

You and me we still the same

 

[04] Drought

 

I've got a head full of drought

When someone's passing my way

Turn around to see hid face and I know his name

I say: »Hallo«, I say: »Hallo, hallo, hallo«

»Seems like years since we have met last time«, you say:

»How could I know what I want, I was twenty-one?«

Ans I say »No, you could not know, you could not know!«

«That's my life and you have to change it.

If you know a way, maybe I can make it«

And I say »No, I don not know, I don not know«

»You know all the things that went wrong.

And you're the one, who can change it.«

It's you're own decision now, i f you like to make.

I say good-bye

But it's your life and you have to change it

To find a way to say good-bye

To say good-bye, hello new life

 

 

[05] 1-2001

 

Feel the devotion

Feel all your pleasure is gone

I know you will never feel

Hear all the loudness

Hear all the songs of praise

I know you will never hear

See all the colors

See all the beautiful flowers

I know you will never see

Try to be a good man

Try to be my best friend

I know you will never try

You should know all my lovesongs

You should know all the tears I cried for you 

But you will never know

 

[06] How Does It Feel

lyrics by Andreas Bruhn

 

[07] Disease

 

You won't see me

You won't believe me

You don't know the way I feel inside

Do you feel the pain I feel inside?

What you say, what you mean

I can read between your lines

Shower me with all your lies

The disease of the age

At the end of all raves

I don't wanna be here anymore

Remember me and my disease

Waiting far too long  for you  to be

Waiting far too long  to be me

Alone at the end you won't release

My way I feel inside

Do you feel the pain I feel inside?

 

[08] Kids in America

[09] Virus

 

You want a letter, I send a postcard

You want your honeymoon, I offer you tea

Here I am, you're  already dead

So I'm to late, what a pity

You want a love night, I bring you flowers

You ask for more, for my life

Here I am, but I'm not yours

You're to late, what a mess it is

I'm a virus, I live in silence

In your times of need, you think of me

I'm so unreal, but in your veins

Look at you and what you are

To live with me, means to ...

 

[10] Beyond

 

Welcome to the oldest garden

Up in the trees, where I will be free

You want to talk about family problems

But in your eyes there is so much more

You won't say ...

Beyond all your words

There is a truth

You won't talk about

Welcome to my madness sadness

Up where nothing is real

Until you find out a right way for us

And I know exactly, who you are
