Lyrics

HOme

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
How they whsiper and sigh

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
Sweet dreams, Evin
Sweet Sorrow, Evin
Won’t you say goodbye
I’ll be here and remind you
Of that old lullaby

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
How the time seems to stop
Once I hear your sigh

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
Yes, I dance in the dark
While my eyes are blind

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
Sweet dreams, Evin
Sweet Sorrow, Evin
Won’t you say goodbye
I’ll be here and remind you
Of that old lullaby

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
What it means to give up
And let go off the fight

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
I was scared
Now I’m free
Sing my sweet little lullaby

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
Sweet dreams, Evin
Sweet Sorrow, Evin
Won’t you say goodbye
I’ll be here and remind you
Of that old lullaby

Can’t you hear
I hear the birds sing
Flower grows, Evin
Deep inside, Evin
You can close your eyes
And fall into
A bright new shining light

DIVING

Blue birds

Where blue birds fly
Where blue birds sigh
This is where I find you

In the darkest corner of the forest
Where there‘s no hiding, no fleeing
This is where I find you

Do you see them coming?
They fly so high tonight
They are here to get you
Will you let them take you far?
Don‘t you fear to let go
And glide then through the night
Don‘t you feel the wind turn?
To where we all together fly

Where blue birds fly
Where blue birds sigh
This is where we let go

All man made figures of force gone
Where there‘s no name, no ideal
Everything is nothing
And nothing is it all

Do you see them coming?
They fly so high tonight
They are here to get you
Will you let them take you far?
Don‘t you fear to let go
And glide then through the night
Don‘t you feel the wind turn?
To where we all together fly

Out in the storm
Out, there we‘ll all go

Sky above

Close your eyes, so your soul can listen
Trust your intuition, Simbi knows what you‘ve been missing
See, they‘ve been messing with you for so long
Thoughts that were screaming so loud
See them always come around
I‘m the victim that they found

Close your eyes, so your soul can
Like the last man, keep it on the falling
Never come back, no word is spoken
Get my feet back on the ground like Franky Borman
See him flying to the sky and
Man is rising to the skyland
While looking back down to the place he can‘t deny that

Oh Lord, will they ever see the truth?
And in the darkest hour, the darkest time you know they will
Oh Lord in the sky above, will they know what they‘ve done?
Will they know? Will they know? Will they know what?

Feel the change and the power it spreads
Change of time, change of light, change of mind, change of that, change of sight
Keep on the walking, I walk out of sight
Keep up the time, I look out for the right, I look out for the right
Shut down the lights
Too lost in the garden
Tired of waiting
Too lost in the garden
Never becoming
You must understand the time to leave
See visions and dreams once dreamed
Once seen, once fought for, once lived for, once died for
But what was it for?
What did they change?
Who did they fight?
Why did they win?
Why did they cry?
The answer in the sky

Oh Lord, will they ever see the truth?
And in the darkest hour, the darkest time I know they will
Oh Lord in the sky above, will they know what they‘ve done?
Will they know? Will they know? Will they know what?

See, when we live like nothing‘s happening
Trampling on the past
Let‘s not forget what our mothers and our fathers fought for
Where we are today because they brought us
What we live today because they brought us
And I know that, I‘ll always know that, I know that I will say

Oh Lord, will they ever see the truth?
And in the darkest hour, the darkest time you know they will
Oh Lord in the sky above, will they know what they‘ve done?
Will they know? Will they know? Will they know what?
Oh Lord, will they ever see the truth?
In the darkest hour, the darkest time you know they will
Oh Lord in the sky above, will they know what they‘ve done?
Will they know? Will they know? Will they know what?

Let me swim in that
Paradise of distraction
Where there‘s too much attraction
And my mind‘s so overstrained
No rest, that how I like the way I walk
Not too much talk
Let me swim in that fishbowl
Let me siwm in that fishbowl
And my mind so overstrained
Too much distraction

You sigh

Getting rid of the old things
Getting rid of the old stuff
Getting rid of the old shoes
Getting rid of the old stuff
Getting rid of the old clothes
Getting rid of the old shit
Getting rid of the old shoes
Getting rid of the old clothes
Getting rid of the old things
Getting rid of the old stuff
Getting rid of the old shoes
Getting rid of the old socks

You sigh, I sigh
You sigh, I sigh

Getting rid of the old clothes
Getting rid of the old shoes
Getting rid of the old
Getting rid of the old things
Getting rid of the old socks
Getting rid of the old shit
Getting rid of the old clothes
Getting rid of the old stuff
Getting rid of the old
Getting rid of the old things
Getting rid of the old boy
Getting rid of the old
Getting rid of the old clothes
Getting rid of the old shoes
Getting rid of the old
Getting rid of the old things
Getting rid of the old socks
Getting rid of the old shit

Blue Birds

Where blue birds fly
Where blue birds sigh
This is where I find you

In the darkest corner of the forest
Where there‘s no hiding, no fleeing
This is where I find you

Do you see them coming?
They fly so high tonight
They are here to get you
Will you let them take you far?
Don‘t you fear to let go
And glide then through the night
Don‘t you feel the wind turn?
To where we all together fly

Where blue birds fly
Where blue birds sigh
This is where we let go

All man made figures of force gone
Where there‘s no name, no ideal
Everything is nothing
And nothing is it all

Do you see them coming?
They fly so high tonight
They are here to get you
Will you let them take you far?
Don‘t you fear to let go
And glide then through the night
Don‘t you feel the wind turn?
To where we all together fly

Out in the storm
Out, there we‘ll all go

Ocean of Sorrow

Falling sorrow
Raining down on my face
Bitter taste of that ocean
Of sorrow
Of sorrow

Lurid Light

You‘d take me somewhere
I‘d follow you anywhere
You‘d take me somewhere
See I follow, I follow, I follow

You‘d take me somewhere
I‘d follow you anywhere
See, I‘d follow you
Anywhere
Let us walk off
But wait, can‘t walk that straight
Can‘t walk that fast
I need someone to hold on

Let us walk off
But wait, can‘t walk that straight
Can‘t walk that fast
I need someone to hold

You showed me light
You showed me the light
Show me light
You showed me the light
You‘d take me somewhere
I‘d follow you anywhere
You‘d take me somewhere
See I follow, I follow, I follow

You‘d take me somewhere
I‘d follow you anywhere
See, I‘d follow you
Anywhere

Mantra

There is unknown beauty
An unknown feeling of home

Thousand suns
Thousand suns

Here I am rooted
Here I sing my song

Thousand suns
Thousand suns

Once the war is over
I‘ll be knocking at your door

Thousand suns
Thousand suns

Then I‘ll be standing at your borders
And they‘ll become undone

Thousand suns
Thousand suns

Istandbul

Thousand faces
Dreaming with open eyes
Thousand faces
Each one is unique
There is no replication
Still you‘re just one of the crowd
Still you‘re just one of them

Don‘t you lose your mind in loneliness

Thousand faces
Beating pulse
Vicious smile
Thousand faces
Never can we sleep
There is no time for resting
Beating pulse
Vicious smile
Weary eyes looking at you
Weary eyes looking at

Thousand faces
Dreaming with open eyes
Thousand faces
Dreaming of the day where there‘s the
Chance of changes
Beating pulse
Vicious smile
Weary eyes looking at you
Weary eyes looking at

Don‘t you lose your mind, I tell you
Meander in the fishbowl
Meander in the fishbowl

This is where we
There‘s a tension in the air
Push forward
We won‘t go back, we‘ll go nowhere
Here we are one
One of thousand faces
Istanbul we taste it
New hope welcomes the new day

This is where we
Become the ones that matter, that scream
United by pain
Pushed by the desire for change
Because there is more to life
Let us be one and let one be us

Common in beauty and ugliness
And when I stand here on Taksim I know
This is where we

Moon that shines so bright
Reveal the colors of the night
Seek the colors of, seek the colors of

The Wave

How could we leave
When the water is pulling us back
Swirling around
The wave holds us so tight in its hands
Moving around
No doubt we will agree and
Still we can‘t see the way
Say where will you take us?

Stripes on the face
Scares lead a way to bygone pictures
A map revealing the wonderland
That you‘ve been swimming in
And you‘ve really been swimming
Kissed by the sun
While the monster left its mark on you

And the wave is coming

Moving around
No doubt we will agree and
Still we can‘t see the way
Say where will you take us?

How could we leave
When the water is pulling us back
Swirling around
The wave holds us so tight in its hands
Moving around
No doubt we will agree and
Still we can‘t see the way
Say where will you take us?

And the wave is coming
Dragging us along
Nearly drowned
Its strong hands let go of our bodies
It‘s time to open our eyes, open our eyes
Move our bodies and open our eyes
Open our eyes, open our eyes

And the wave is coming

Moving around
No doubt we will agree and
Still we can‘t see the way
Say where will you take us?

How could we leave?
How could we leave?

When the water is pulling, water is pulling us back
Say where will you take us?

Where will you take us?
I don‘t know
But you know what?
I will trust you
Because we‘ve been walking so long
And now I won‘t give up
I won‘t give up, I promise

Goldmund

Ice cold wind
You will never kill
The fire inside
Inside, never kill
Ice cold stream
You will never take me away
I‘ll stay, won‘t go away

Fields so wide
The winter sighes
And smiles
Timeless life

Stone cold doubt
Building up a wall
But I will break
Break through, break through

Stone cold death
Knocking at my door
But I‘m not done
I‘m not done, there‘s more to come

See no beginning, I see no end
But I can accept the moment
Its endlessness, its timelessness
Solitudes filled with fortune

||: A fortune so rare, so full of peace
Won‘t let go of it :||

In your eyes I see a thousand julies
A great journey
With a thirst that can‘t be satisfied
Never ending desire
Awful insights you face
But I know you‘ll never unlearn
To see the truth and beauty on the way

||:Fields so wide
The winter sighs
A journey begins and lives
With a thirst that can‘t be satisfied:||

On the search for the timeless life

Endlessly falling

You got somethin‘

You got something

Something that I‘ve been told
You know, why I would never be alone and
You got nothing
Nothing ought to be told?
I wanna listen to that
I wanna listen to that

You got nothing that can be less
Nothing else that can relate
All my life
All my life
You got nothing that can be less
Nothing else that can be found
Darkest time
In the darkest time

You got something
Something that I‘ve been told
You know, you got
But it‘s something, it‘s something
You got something
Something that I‘ve been told
I wanna listen to that
I gotta listen to that

That‘s red that‘s inside of here
That‘s red that‘s inside of here
You don‘t know bout
That‘s red that‘s inside of here
You don‘t know bout what bout what it is but

That‘s red that‘s inside of here
That‘s red that‘s inside of here
Come closer
That‘s red that‘s inside of here
You don‘t know bout what bout what it is but

You got something
Something that I‘ve been told
You got, you got
But it‘s something, it‘s something
You got something
Something that I‘ve been told
I wanna listen to that
I gotta listen to that

You got something
Something that could be told
You got, you got
But it‘s all good, it‘s all good
You got something
Something that could be told
I wanna listen to that’
I gotta listen to that

You got nothing that can relate
Nothing else that can relate
All my life
All my life
You got nothing that can relate
Nothing else that can be found
Darkest times
In the darkest times

Did you ever feel useless? / Bassphysics

Above us, flying in there
Flying in up the sky
Above us, it is waiting for us
Won‘t you take us
Won‘t you go too far

Riding to nowhere
It ain‘t leading you nowhere
Riding to nowhere
It ain‘t leading you nowhere
You want to live
But instead you tryin‘ to chosing what you haven‘t done
You want to live
But you‘ve been wandering far
So far from here

Above us, flying in there
Flying in up the sky
Above us, it is waiting for us
Won‘t you take us
Won‘t you go too far

Hear my voice as an echo in your head
Come back, won‘t you come back
Don‘t you go to far

Above us, flying in there
Flying in up the sky
Above us, it is waiting for us
Won‘t you take us
Won‘t you go too far

Scentless & Silently

Scentless and silently
Poison spreading vast, spreading vast to,
Scentless and silently
Poison spreading vast, running fire
Scentless and silently
Water‘s flooding down
Scentless and silently

Scentless and silently
Your bare hands pull me close, pull me closer
Scentless and silently
Faces become set, become hardend
Scentless and silenlty
Water‘s flooding down
Scentless and silently

Bewitched face
Restless eyes
Coming hunting for my life
Coming hunting for my life

Bewitched face
Restless eyes
Coming hunting for my life
Coming hunting for my life

Scentless and silently
Poison spreading vast, spreading vast to,
Scentless and silently
Poison spreading vast, running fire
Scentless and silently
Water‘s flooding down
Scentless and silently

Floating

Float above the land, above your head
Try to reach for solid ground
When will I stop?
When will I rest?

Hands are always longing, always wanting
Hands are drying out and looking old
Tired of that constant desire
it‘s burning on

When the constant meander is done
Upwind but I stand
When the constant meander is done
Rooted like a tree
When the constant meander is done
See but not with eyes
When the constant meander is done
Found the ground to fly

Headless I walk around the streets
Some force pushing me forward
Whipping wind from the back
I just run, I just run

Headless in the mazeI stumble on the way
And then I fall
And there‘s nowhere to linger
It‘s like a lull in the wind
A standstill of time

When the constant meander is done
Upwind but I stand
When the constant meander is done
Rooted like a tree
When the constant meander is done
See but not with eyes
When the constant meander is done

Better We Sing

We sing for the better
To change for the better
I do sing
No, I won‘t be afraid
We sing for the better
To change for the better,
I do sing
No, I won‘t refrain

Let me accept who you are
And I‘ll accept who I am
Let me accept who you are
And I‘ll accept who I am
Words become different
A stream that we drift in
We dive deep
Yet all we do is breath

Words become different
A stream that we drift in
I dive deep
Yet all I do is breath

Unsaid thoughts
They become castles
Like a prisoner you keep them in your mind
And upon that you built yourself a castle
Such a bright and shining space
No one could guess the dark side of your face

Let me accept who you are
And I‘ll accept who I am
Let me accept who you are
And I‘ll accept who I am
Let me accept who you are
And I‘ll accept who I am
Let me accept who you are
And I‘ll accept who I am

Kept a word in my mind
For a long, long, long time
But now I‘m gonna say
I‘m gonna say
What has been there for too long

Keep diving
They can‘t steal our name
Keep diving
They can‘t kill our flame
It will burn, it will burn on
Watch this
