Wolfsheim: Popkiller (1993)

For You I'm Bleeding

Here I am
Darkest night
Is masking the cold
That embraces me

Can't you see?
Truth means fear
Your lying breath
Never will resist

Alone I sit here waiting
Watching the world
In its agony

'cause I have seen my future
My crying face
No cure I'm longing for

And no healer
Heals the evil
I sought truth for you
Condemned to fail

For you, for you
I'm bleeding
And every new dawn
Ends in bitterness

For you, for you
I'm bleeding
And every new dawn
Ends in bitterness

For you, for you
I'm bleeding
For you, for you
I'm bleeding
For you, for you
I'm bleeding
For you, for you
I'm bleeding


Tender Days

Prowling streets at night
The moonlight's burning
And I feel so lonely

Dark and dull my mind
A crying emptiness
I cannot cope with

I'm yours
You're mine
Our love eternal

One day
You left
My heart in silence

All the merry dreams we lose
Remember tender days of youth
We will never know the truth
Remember tender days of youth
No shade of doubt, no need for proof
Remember tender days of youth
You're my queen and I'm your fool
Remember tender days of youth

You're my sun... you shine into my heart
Innocent und pure... you save me from the dark

All the merry dreams we lose
Remember tender days of youth
We will never know the truth
Remember tender days of youth
No shade of doubt, no need for proof
Remember tender days of youth
You're my queen and I'm your fool
Remember tender days of...

Youth has come, youth is gone
In every breath I smell your beauty

Deep and true my love for you
Like something words I cannot find for

My God! What is it for?
You took my love away

"Don't shed no tear!" she said
But nothing's left that I can hope for

Remember tender days of youth
Remember tender days of youth
No shade of doubt, no need for proof
Remember tender days of youth
You're my queen and I'm your fool
Remember tender days of youth

Remember tender days of youth...
Remember tender days of youth...


Lovesong

Wait my dear... no jealousies
Silly thing... you can't know how I feel

Come take my hand, I will show you the flame
Burning secrets, burning wishes... your name

Don't be insecure, don't be afraid... I'll hold you tight
Oh virgin weakness, infinite sweetness... that's you
So let's dance... all alone

I want to kiss you, want to feel you... deep
Your silky skin, a tender touch
A sigh that promises so much
I want to kiss you, want to feel you... deep
And so we dance

Nothing ever spoils my joy of loving you
Of looking in your eyes... I couldn't be that blind
That I won't crave for you
And we still dance... all alone

I want to kiss you, want to feel you
Want to drown in your desire
Your silky skin, a tender touch
A sigh that promises so much
I want to kiss you, want to feel you so deep

Come take my hand, I will show you the flame
Burning secrets, burning wishes... your name

Don't be insecure, don't be afraid... I'll hold you tight
Oh virgin weakness, infinite sweetness... oh you

Your silky skin, a tender touch
A sigh that promises so much
I want to kiss you, want to feel you
So deep, so deep, so deep, so deep


Kaufraush

Fear that threatens you inside
You can run but you can't hide
Things you've never seen before
And more... and more... and more...

Strange ideas you have been taught
And false prophets got you caught
No way out... this cage is made of thoughts
Get more and more

Work your fingers to the bone
For all these useless things you own
Happiness can not be bought
But you want more and more

You can't control your hunger
Deep down within
You can't solve the mystery
Of right and sin
No apparent difference
Will make it clear
Not the slightest trace of hope
Relieves your fear

Envy and prosperity
Wrapped in concrete
Draw the bitter consequence:
Entire defeat
Trapped in neon wilderness
Oh, wasted land
Fat and ugly humanoids
Can't find no vent


Entropy

A melting star ran through my fingers
Blood red furrows on the sea
Was it wind that never lingers?
Or, was it you who never came?

Standing on the shore
A distant call
Golden waves appear
And take me home

Cover me, oh noonday sun
So my heart could carry on
A morning new is soon to come
Serenity has yet begun
Has yet begun

I am sick for I'm a sinner
All I attempt is in vain
The spring of ice is growing clearer
In silent storms of entropy

Anger swept away
Be firm with me
Furtive entity
Our time has come

Standing on the shore
A distant call
Golden waves appear
And take me home
And take me home

Anger swept away
Be firm with me
Furtive entity
Our time has come
Our time has come

Cover me, oh noonday sun
So my heart could carry on
A morning new is soon to come
Serenity has yet begun
Has yet begun


Now I Fall

Sometimes I can't fall asleep
You lie beside me and I weep
Dancing shadows on the wall
Once you caught me... now I fall

Sometimes I feel love and trust
Turn to anger and disgust
Crawling darkness in between
No light in reach... no silver sheen

Sometimes I feel so ashamed
To be mercilessly framed
Idle hands and eyes that stare
But no escape that I would dare

Love and trust
Anger and disgust
Crawling darkness in between
No light in reach... no silver sheen

So ashamed
Mercilessly framed
Idle hands and eyes that stare
But no escape that I would dare

Pain increasing every day
No truth left I won't betray
One day our way leads to an end
Why do I cry? I understand

That it's too late for me to go
I should have left you years ago
Beyond this point of no return
Hatred's flame will ever burn

Every day
I won't betray
One day our way leads to an end
Why do I cry? I understand

Too late for me to go
Should have left you years ago
Beyond this point of no return
Hatred's flame will ever burn

Dancing shadows on the wall
Once you caught me... now I fall
Crawling darkness in between
No light in reach... no silver sheen


(The Obvious Fact That) Scars Remain (And How To Cope With It)

Grapes of wrath are fruit of passion,
Fulsome hands don't feel repentance.
Seek the reason, find an answer...
Why do only scars remain?
Mirror, mirror on the wall...

A mean and ugly, calm but painful
Feeling you can't understand,
A taste of freedom, insufficient...
But it's all that's left to be...
Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Mirror, mirror on the wall...

So come on, defy indifference,
And the sun will shine for you again...
Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Mirror, mirror on the wall...

Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Seek the reason, find an answer...
Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Why do only scars remain?

Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Mirror, mirror on the wall...

Don't be frightened, don't be anxious,
A new attempt and you fall further down.
Come on, defy indifference
And the sun will shine for you again.

So come on, defy indifference
And the sun will shine for you again...

Childhood Cruel

Smoking your first cigarette
Coughing and getting sick
Making an experience
Childhood cruel

Wicked father's touch so new
Love it seemed became untrue
Wounded little silly heart
Childhood cruel
Childhood cruel

Riding a blue bicycle
Didn't see the nearing car
Seven days in hospital
Childhood cruel

Lazy daddy unemployed
Drunken tyrant killing time
Painful laurel is your gain
Childhood cruel
Childhood cruel

Every morning bed is wet
(You're) trying to hide away
Angry mommy points at you
Childhood cruel

Many too expensive drugs
Temptation irresistable
All regrets are meaningless
Childhood cruel
Childhood cruel

Childhood cruel


Gates

Alone... but you're feeling all right
It's a lie, you're just feeling good
'cause strange men want you to
Easy way to run away from yourself
It's a lie, no-one gets out of here alive

And everyone feels happy
Everyone feels great
Today... walking through these gates

And everyone feels happy
Everyone feels great
Today... walking through these gates
Wake up my dear
It's killing day

Betrayed and kissed goodbye
Live your life
Don't think about the reasons for it all
Following the line that never ends
The moon is looking down at fools
Who always fail

And everyone feels happy
Everyone feels great
Today... walking through these gates
Wake up my dear
It's killing day, killing day

And everyone feels happy
Everyone feels great
Today... walking through these gates
Wake up my dear
It's killing day, killing day, killing day


Auf Ein Wort...

Da ist kein Mensch, der nie verdirbt
Da ist kein Strom, der nie versiegt
Und Dunkelheit läßt Licht am Horizont zersplittern

Fühl' ich den Wind in meinen Händen
Versinkt die Nacht in meinem Haar
Und Bitterkeit läßt den fernen Erdengrund in mir erzittern

Dein scheuer Blick treibt mein Blut
In wilder Flucht durch mein Herz
Und kalter Zorn läßt in mir Himmelsdämme brechen

Flammenzungen dich umlodern
Ein Ring aus Schuld umstrahlt dein Haupt
In meinem Namen, heil'ge Hure
Wirst du keine Lügen sprechen


Faith

I won't care
If I must leave today
This world was mine
Sometimes
Moments blue
And moments true
With you

Eternity is not what I am longing for
I will walk my way... aimlessly
