Wolfsheim: Dreaming Apes (1996)

Upstairs

I am dreaming, I'm screaming
But making no sound
I'm the nightmare from upstairs
And I'm coming down

From silence to violence
In a single step
Try to leave or retrieve
What I can't forget

I can see what I'll be
When I'm going on
I can't heal it, can't feel
If I'm doing wrong

It's burning, it's yearning
It's spinning around
Let it shout, tear it out, save me
From this...

I am dreaming, I'm screaming
But making no sound
I'm the nightmare from upstairs
And I'm coming down

From silence to violence
In a single step
Try to leave or retrieve
What I can't forget

I can see what I'll be
When I'm going on
I can't heal it, can't feel
If I'm doing wrong

It's burning, it's yearning
It's spinning around
Let it shout, tear it out, save me
From this...

When I'm going on
I can't heal it, can't feel
If I'm doing wrong

It's burning, it's yearning
It's spinning around
Let it shout, tear it out, save me
From this unholy being...


Closer Still

The watery light that mirrors
In your desireable eyes
The way you move your lips
While talking to somebody else
I move a little closer
Just to hear what you say
You speak of loneliness
But here's a soul adoring you

Here's a soul adoring you

It's a wounded heart
It breaks into
And in its pain
It sings for you
It's a wounded heart
That feels afraid
Moves closer still
Fulfills its fate

It's a wounded heart
It breaks into
And in its pain
It sings for you
It's a wounded heart
That feels afraid
Moves closer still
Fulfills its fate

Your freedom's poverty
That you do not recognize
The way you stalk the night
While talking to somebody else
I move a little closer
Just to know who you are
A slightly glowing ember
I'm the breeze igniting you

It's a wounded heart
It breaks into
And in its pain
It sings for you
It's a wounded heart
That feels afraid
Moves closer still
Fulfills its fate


A New Starsystem Has Been Explored

Ist dies noch mein Gesicht?
Ich hör' meine Stimme nicht!
Ich habe Angst zu sehen
Dies könnte alles vergehen

Mein Herz, es rast so schnell
Dieser Schmerz so grell
Welch' großer Sternenheld
Des' Wort zu Staub zwerfällt

Ich hab' den Tod der Sonnen gesehen!
Sie waren von Rot so heiß..
So wunderschön!

Deep-Space-Overdose
Frei und zügellos
Deep-Space-Overdose
Verloren rettungslos

Deep-Space-Overdose
Frei und zugellos
Deep-Space-Overdose
Verloren rettungslos

Ist dies der dumpfe Klang
Mit dem die Zeit begann?
Ich habe Angst zu sehen
Sie könnte nie vergehen!

Die Welt ein Schattenbild
Verlangen ungestillt
Ein blinder Menschentraum
Verloren in Licht und Raum

Ich hab' den Tod der Sonnen gesehen!
Sie waren von Blau so kalt...
So wunderschön!

Deep-Space-Overdose
Tief und grenzenlos
Deep-Space-Overdose
Alt und ruhelos

Deep-Space-Overdose
Tief und grenzenlos
Deep-Space-Overdose
Alt und ruhelos

Deep-Space-Overdose
Tief und grenzenlos
Deep-Space-Overdose
Alt und ruhelos

Deep-Space-Overdose


A Million Miles

A million miles from here
I stand alone and shout
Not any thoughts, not any doubts

I look around and nothing
I can see is true
This is anything but new

I feel a silent rain
Pour down impassively
A solemn nightfall kills the light
That longs to be

A needless pain...
You bear in vain
Unless you can see
There is nothing to sustain

I feel a silent rain pour down on me
A million miles from here I stand alone
I look around and everything's untrue
Anything but needless pain...
You bear in vain
Unless you can see
There is nothing to sustain

A needless pain...
You bear in vain
Unless you can see
There is nothing to sustain

A needless pain...
You bear in vain
Unless you can see
There is nothing to sustain


Old Man's Valley

I said goodbye to the river...
The mountains and the trees
Can't you hear? They are singing their song
Of birth and agony

Many words, many dreams I've got to give...

I said goodbye to the seasons
That were never insincere
By myself I am singing their song
That no one wants to hear
I'm singing their song...

Many words, many dreams I've got to give
But in this racing world there is no place for me
And if I leave today no memories remain...

Many words, many dreams I've got to give
But in this racing world there is no place for me
And if I leave today no memories remain...

Many words, many dreams I've got to give...


Leave No Deed Undone

From the moment you wake up
You cannot feel free
There are so many things in this world
You can't see
Just don't keep on leaving
Your dreams behind
Have the heart to see
You'll get trapped in your mind

No escape
Every further step you'll ever make
Will drive you on to me
And I will set you free

It's like an impurity in your mind
Furtive ruin that hails from behind
Get rid of the demon that darkens your sun
Go on... go on... leave no deed undone!

You don't really depend on material plight
And the way you live... it is simply not right
You just have to get rid of your own demands
Fight against yourself for a second chance

No escape
Every further step you'll ever make
Will drive you on to me
And I will set you free

Sometimes it's too easy just to be scared
No-one promised your life would be fair
There's always a reason for you to run
Away... with me... leave no deed undone!

Leave no deed undone!
Leave no deed undone!
Leave no deed undone!
Leave no deed undone!

From the moment you wake up
You cannot feel free
There are so many things in this world
You can't see
Just don't keep on leaving
Your dreams behind
Have the heart to see
You'll get trapped in your mind

No escape
No escape
No escape
No escape
Every further step you'll ever make
Will drive you on to me
And I will set you free


Anyway

I awake... and I look...
Down at my sleeping face
From the cold
Persuading melodies
Want me to join this...
Unreal dance,
An unholy humming
That echoes and dies...

Can I resist...
Be torn into laughter?
And can I persist
Being torn into light?
They want me to join this...
Unreal dance,
That forces my mind
Just to follow thy will...

Anyway...
Any way must lead out into me and...
Anyway, I can't go on crawling...
Anyway, must get rid of it all...

Endless halls... dancing shades...
Spinning around...
Twisting their skinny limbs...
Stench of doom I smell...
They want me to join this...
Unreal dance
And don't want to offer me...
Any further chance...

Anyway...
Any way must lead out into me and...
Anyway, I can't go on crawling...
Anyway, must get rid of it all...

Careworn... down torn...
Into the swirl of their senselessness...
Cosy emptiness...
It wants me to join this...
Unreal dance...
Left alone... anywhere you go...
You'll be caught in your fear again...

Anyway...
Any way must lead out into me and...
Anyway, I can't go on crawling...
Anyway, must get rid of it all...

Anyway...


Übers Jahr

Spuren im Schnee führen an dir vorüber,
Frostklare Winde im Mondenschein.
Endlose Stunden voll gläsernem Schweigen,
Wachst du beharrlich in tiefer Nacht.

Bricht dann die Stille,
Zerfließt ein verschlafenes, karges Verlangen.
Leise verweht sich der Nebel,
Endlich voller Licht die Welt...

Tiefgrüne Wiesen, schattenkühle Wälder
Blühen in der Gunst des Sonnenspiels...
Reifende Ähren in wiegendem Tanze
Flüstern ihre Weisen dem Winde zu...

Bricht dann die Stille
Neuerlich hernieder, mit diesigem Hauche...
Leise erhebt sich der Nebel,
Schließlich tritt die Nacht in die Welt...

Wieder sind da Spuren
Im Schnee bei den Bäumen,
Der Mond steht alleine
In kalter Nacht...

Es ist eine Stille,
Ganz tiefe Ruhe,
Allmächtiges Schlafen...
Leise verliert sich das Leben,
Wartet auf den neuen Tag...


A Broken Whisper

Silence slowly comes to me...
Embraces me so tight to keep me cold...
A thought that's drifting through my mind...
Struggles to be free and wails alone...

Embraces me... so tight...
Struggles to... be free...
We turn to stone!
We don't find home!

Can you hear this broken whisper?
Can you hear it how it calls?
We turn to stone!
We don't find home!

Embraces me... so tight...
Struggles to... be free...
We turn to stone!
We don't find home!

Can you hear this broken whisper?
Can you hear it how it calls?
We turn to stone!
We don't find home!
