Rise Above

 

I knew you at the beginning
and I'll know you at the end
and what I mess up in between
I no longer try to understand

 

We rise above, we rise above,
Oh Lord, I rise above
on the wings of love

 

The dream broke apart yesterday
Do you really believe you can make me stay
I traded it for higher ground
and left town in the morning gray

 

We rise above, we rise above
Oh Lord, we rise above
on the wings of love

 

Don’t ask me where I came from
Don’t ask me where I’ll go
Let’s not waste time on idle talk
when there is one sure thing we know

 

 

 

All The Way

 

Straight into my galaxy
you came along and passed me the key
And with every step you turn me on
till I’m all the way
all the way
gone

 

Upwards, upwards and right away
the shadows lift to welcome day
My feet are weak, but the call is strong
till I’m all the way
all the way
gone

 

I belong to you
and you belong to me
whatever we seem to go through
I want to come around
like to lay it down
and break the walls to get to you

 

Love, I see your face
like a fire wildly ablaze
Lighting my lonely maze
with no shadow to remember

 

Come on, come on and come today
Nothing here is meant to stay
And get untied, cause it won’t take long
till we’re all the way
all the way
gone

 

I belong to you
and you belong to me
whatever we seem to go through
I want to come around
like to lay it down
and break the walls to get to you

 

 

 

Eventually

 

Perhaps, in spite of me
I am your lover
Though it took me a long time
to discover
what you offer me

 

Perhaps, in spite of me
I am flying
into the open sky
to disappear
into infinity

 

'cause it is just a moment that it takes to see
While all the rivers and streams wash over me
so may I die to be born eventually

 

Perhaps, in spite of me
there is a new start
No gap keeps us apart
and love
is no mystery

 

‘cause it is just a moment that it takes to see
While all the rivers and streams wash over me
so may I die to be born eventually

 

Perhaps, in spite of me
I am your lover
Though it took me a long time
to discover
what you offer me

 

 

 

Black Hole Swirl

 

Here you stand
Staring into the void
You made your life a shallow grave
while you try to look overjoyed

 

Come and meet yourself
Make the jump into the other world
if you don’t mind a little black hole swirl

 

Take the chance
Take it all the way my friend
You never tried to do anything
but build castles made of sand

 

Come and meet yourself
Make the jump into the other world
if you don’t mind a little black hole swirl

 

Can’t you see
what a big invitation
life is offering you today
if you go for your destination

 

Come and meet yourself
Make the jump into the other world
if you don’t mind a little black hole swirl

 

 

 

Dance With The Masters

 

Let me step once more through the curtain
I’m the voice from dungeons down below
You hide me because you fear your greatest power
No ignorance can pretend that you don’t know

 

This world you live in is not home to you
and somewhere in your heart you know that this is true
None of the thousand houses you have built contains your restless mind
while still a memory of home is haunting you

 

Lay down, lay down, lay down your little toys
and dance with the masters

 

I was with you in your darkest hour
when despair and death was all you seemed to find
An alien in exile from somewhere all unknown
Yet there is one answer to the million questions in your mind

 

Lay down, lay down, lay down your little toys
and dance with the masters

 

 

Shine Your Light On Me

 

Here I stand
with empty hands
and a losing score
My feet are burning
with endless yearning
I can’t go on no more

 

Shine your light on me
I pray on bended knees
Shine your light on me
Oh, hear me please
I’ ve got nowhere else to go
to find release

 

On my way
I’ve gone astray
in many a dark place
But still I know
wherever I go
I find you in every face

 

Shine your light on me
I pray on bended knees
Shine your light on me
Oh, hear me please
I’ ve got nowhere else to go
to find release

 

 

Take Me On The Ride

 

Caught in a whirl of time
I gotta make you mine
before I’m sinking like a stone
You told me once before
to leave this blind man’s shore
and now I’m standing here alone

 

Take me on the ride
where darkness comes to light
I want to live this ecstasy
Let me step inside
There is nothing I will hide
while I dance with you so free

 

No reason can explain
this heavy ball and chain
When will we choose who we want to be
Call within, call without
What is it all about
I lay it all down for you and me

 

Take me on the ride
where darkness comes to light
I want to live this ecstasy
Let me step inside
There is nothing I will hide
while I dance with you so free

 

 

Do You Hear The Laughter

 

Do you hear the laughter
The bright and godly laughter
You are meant to be there
in the middle of that joy

 

Do you see the blue sky
The untouchable blue sky
You are meant to be there
in the middle of the day

 

Do you drink of the fountain
The clear and holy fountain
You are meant to be there
in the middle of the feast

 

Do you catch the light, now
of abundance and delight
You are meant to be there
in the middle of that flame

 

Do you kiss the lips of love
The lips that kiss all fear away
You are meant to be there
in the middle of that heart

 

 

The Light Has Come

 

At the abyss of desperation
I call your name
Take me home with you
On the peak of exaltation
I call you again
Take me home with you

 

Out of the blue you came to me
and now you are all I see
And whatever was before
doesn’t matter anymore
‘cause the light has come
and you are the one
who shines it’s rays
into my face

 

When I find myself mistaken
I call your name
Take me home with you
To the love I have forsaken
I call you again
Take me home with you

 

Out of the blue you came to me
and now you are all I see
And whatever was before
doesn’t matter anymore
‘cause the light has come
and you are the one
who shines it’s rays
into my face

 

In the battle’s raging fire
I call your name
Take me home with you

 

 

 

A World Too New To Have A Name

 

It might take a thousand years
while it’s really happening now
But whatever it may be
it is you – you and me

 

You might travel to the stars
while it’s all here to find
But whatever it may be
it is you – you and me

 

Every journey ends where it began
and all our concepts are in vain
For we are all the same
all the same
in a world too new to have a name

 

You might wildly shoot your guns
or you might be picking flowers
But whatever it may be
it is you – you and me

 

Your skin might be white
while you really wish it black
But whatever it may be
it is you – you and me

 

Every journey ends where it began
and all our concepts are in vain
For we are all the same
all the same
in a world too new to have a name

 

Say it in all languages
or say it wordlessly
But whatever it may be
it is you – you and me

 

Your name might be Bin Laden
or George W. Bush
Whatever it may be
it is you – you and me

 

Every journey ends where it began
and all our concepts are in vain
For we are all the same
all the same
in a world too new to have a name

 

 

The Music Is In You

 

It’s a bright new day
but before we play
let go of the past
that got you here
Is it a way of life
or a wave of light
Just let our sorrows
disappear

 

Come on
Come on
I'll teach you the song
but the music is in you

 

Do you get the joke
of the devil’s stroke
when it all turned so small
for a little while
Though i couldn’t say
what will be our pay
Love goes every
extra mile

 

Come on
Come on
I'll teach you the song
but the music is in you

 

 

 

Where Shall I Go

 

It is just a memory
but it burns in me like fire
I hate it like an enemy
though it is still my only desire

 

The flowers faded yesterday
and the sun looks stale and gray
I worked for this old wizard
who gave me nothing but decay

 

Where shall I go
Where shall I go
It is all so in vain
and I can’t wipe my tears in the driving rain

 

It was all given at the start
Yet I couldn’t keep it together
And though my love fell apart
I won’t regret it ever

 

Where shall I go
Where shall I go
It is all so in vain
and I can’t wipe my tears in the driving rain

 

 

 

There Is Nothing To Fear

 

Everyone is everything, everything
You got it all in your hands now
Time is flowing down the drain, down the drain
and waiting for your commands now

 

Where do you go when evolution calls you
You can’t go back into your mother’s womb
While every delay will just cause you pain
and you can’t even hide inside a tomb

 

There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear

 

Everyone is everything, everything
You got it all in your hands now
Time is flowing down the drain, down the drain
and waiting for your commands now

 

Take a big vacation, now, my love
from all the littleness that’s surrounding you
For in truth there is nothing to fear
if you don’t want your illusions to be true

 

There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
