2005 – SHAAMAN – Reason

Shaaman – Reason

 1. Turn away

You touched yourself with fire touching someone else
Your well is dry, you cry out 
in search of more success
You left your thoughts in darkness
One day they’ll return
Some other kind of lesson would be good to learn

Don’t get all down on me 
Don’t ever turn away!

Break through your barriers
Sharpened diamond cut
Again you’re trapped in lies 
or simply misunderstood?

Just tell me, what do you need now
To be that someone else
Is there another desire?

it will be your last

Don’t get all down on me 
Don’t ever turn away!

Leave me alone
Seeds now are raised and grown
Play  me today, then turn away

Leave me alone
Seeds now are raised and grown
Play  me today, use me then turn away

2. Reason

Strange how summer blossoms
Blew away so late this year
Falling from above, soft as snow
All around you

The days, I’d like to bring back
Side by side with you
And peer through that old black window
And see red-blue skies so near, but

Say the word
And I’ll be ready to make a sacrifice
Stay – Don’t turn around
There’s only one reason

All my life I wished I was here
Looking for a chance to cry out
All the pain that turned me into stone
And thoughts that haunt me day by day

The word is “now”
I’m ready to make my sacrifice
Pray – Imagine all the things
That I never talked about
Stay – Don’t turn around
You’re the only one

Won’t you save me, take me away
There’s no more reason to hide
Try to make a stand
It’s not only tears in my eyes
Somewhere I’m all alone… without you

“Flowers of light descend as the twilight strangles the sky

May I, in this vast world

Ever find another soul

To contemplate my silence, forever…”

Won’t you save me, take me away
I’ve felt so lost as I’ve tried
Hold me, help me stand
Don’t mind the tears in my eyes
Someday we’ll pass away
Is there a time to go by?
Take a breath and smile
Fortune is to be alive

For apparently no reason

3. More

Some people get by
with a little understanding
some people get by
with a whole lot more
I don’t know
why you gotta be so undemanding
one thing I know
I want more
I want more

(and I need all the love that I can’t get to) 
(and I need all the love I can get) 
(and I need all the love that I can’t get to)

D’you get scared to feel so much? 
to let somebody touch you? 
so hot, so cold, so far so out of control 
hard to come by, and harder to hold

Some people get by 
with a little understanding 
some people get by 
with a whole lot more 
I don’t know 
why you gotta be so undemanding 
I want more 
(and I need all the love I can get) 
(and I need all the love that I can’t get to) 
(and I need all the love I can get) 
(and I need all the love that I can’t get to)

There are parts of me that don’t get nervous 
not the parts that shake 
you won’t get what you deserve 
you are what you take 
learning to cry for fun and profit 
I’m not done yet 
counterfeit dollars or the English zloty 
anything I can get

Some people get by 
with a little understanding 
some people get by 
with a whole lot more 
I don’t know 
why you gotta be so undemanding 
one thing I know 
I want more

(and I need all the love I can get) 
(and I need all the love that I can’t get to) 
(and I need all the love I can get) 
(and I need all the love that I can’t get to)

All the love that you can get 
all the love 
that I can’t get to

4. Innocence

I woke today
Inside a train of dreams
the rain poured down in black and white
I stood and stared
the rest of what remains
Of my own world crumbling around

I held my tears 
One day comes after another

the falling rain 
carassed my skin again 
just let it flow to wash away 
A time gone by 
A feeling long denied 
my heart is no more bound in pain

and now it’s clear 
one day leads on to another 
I dry my tears
there’s so much else to discover 
somewhere…

I hear the sound 
A thousand voices 
I lost my innocence 
I’m on my way 
Across the desert 
To rescue what I sent 
Out of my heart away

And now it’s clear 
One day leads on to another 
We’ll fight our fears 
And find the way back to each other

oh!

I hear the sound 
A thousand voices 
I lost my innocence 
I’m on my way 
Across the desert 
To rescue what I sent 
Out of my heart away

5. Scarred Forever

There’s a chance for you and me 
Far away from disbelief
When the prayers reach the sky 
Comes a moment you will cry no more

Run, running away, falling apart 
Thunder of fates colliding

Everyday I see your face 
Through my intimate disgrace 
When it’s cracking up inside 
Comes a moment you will cry no more

Run, running away, falling apart 
Beat of a heart now torn in two 
Shadows are tamed out in the dark 
Beauty is scarred forever

Doorways, empty nights are left behind 
Always the moment is right you can’t deny your fate 
Deny your fate

[Guitar solo]

A hateful air disturbs the sky 
It’s time to say goodbye 
Along the way I’ll wish you well 
Turn off the lights, let us have 
Our last goodbye in hell

Run, running away, falling apart 
Beat of a heart now torn in two 
Shadows are tamed out in the dark 
Beauty is scarred forever

Doorways, empty nights are left behind 
Always the moment is right you can’t deny your fate 
Deny your fate

Deny your fate

6. In The Night

In the night, realm of dreams
Wildness creeps, descending
All so quiet, all so still
Prowling silence in the night

In the heights, on the peaks
Rainy clouds surrounding
There are cities made of light
Ripping through the black of night

All becomes so real
Making dreams come true
To release your mind and free your soul

Fly away from this land
Made of old scraps of sorrow
No way back, free to ride
Hesitation…sacrifice

Mesmerize, hold on tight
For the heavens bend down
There’s a tunnel, long and winding
Leading on towards the light

All becomes so real
Making dreams come true
To release your mind and free your soul

Free yourself from misery, let go
Hear my voice and I will guide your roaming

[Guitar solo]

Oh, free yourself from misery, let go
Hear my voice and I will light your road
Leave behind the world you know, and float
Hear my voice and I will guide your roaming

7. Rough Stone

Flowing down inside the stream
Blowing all around
Like another day of spring
Spreading out through the ground

Changing seasons come and go
Before and after life
And the sun will set again
Bringing out the darkest night

Only made to disappear?
Life’s a rough stone
And the future, unclear

Wait for the day of your life
That you will meet the unkown
There’s nowhere else to go
Wait for the truth, not a lie
It will meet you alone
End of all illusion

Only made to disappear?
Life’s a rough stone
And the future, right here
So much pain, suffering and strife
Mystery of death
Brings a new man to life

8. Iron Soul

Look around, what do you see?
Caught up in humility?
Too many souls are on their own
Fallen angels moving on

There’s more to get, more to find
Feelings of another kind
The choice is set, take it soon
For even you won’t be inmune now

I’d count it a miracle
If I ever see your smile
Throw away your illusions, dear
Don’t keep trusting your own lies

Who’s in command of your heart?
Of your hope?
Past thoughts are vague
As they soar high and low

Yet someday, still alive
You will find a will to strive
For someone else will come along
To lift you up, to right the wrong

And you will see within your eyes
Figures that comes back to life
You’ll touch the wounds that never heal
Love is raw, it’s not for real

I’d count it a miracle
If I ever see your smile
Throw away your illusions, dear
Let me hold you for a while

Who’s in command of your heart, of your hope?
Past thoughts are vague, running out of control

There was a time when the fields were green
The world was one, life was filled with something
There was a blue sea, on the horizon
There was a dream of a lasting fire
We bottomed out, life’s become so cruel
Along the way, a regardless torment
Is there a cause that we would die for?
Is there a place where the spirit lives on?

Who’s in command of your heart, of your hope?
Past thoughts are vague, running out of control
There’s more to know and there’s much more beyond
The faith that you’ve lost you will find on your own

9. Trail Of Tears

Not for a day 
Not for a while 
You’re all alone, you’re never satisfied 
Oh you’ve been dreaming for a hundred years

So you began 
To understand 
That your lifetime is running through your hands 
Who will forgive you for this trail of tears?

There you go on

Someone to love
Easy to find 
Fulfill your heart with blood of any kind 
Unlink the chain before it strangles you

There you go 
Hearing voices and noises again 
There you stand 
Back in time where it all once began 
There you are, in vain…

After a shock 
Time to recompose 
An old bleeding heart 
So mistreated and abused

Who will forgive you for this trail of tears?

There you go 
Hearing voices and noises again 
There you stand 
Back in time where it all once began 
There you are, my friend

10. Born To Be

I looked inside me 
To find myself 
To purify me 
To cease the pain
Across the river 
A life goes by 
Look inside the mirror 
And you will find out

In solitude I was born 
It terrified me

A veil of mist right before my eyes

I walked in shadows 
I drowned in rain 
I met the desert 
And I’m born again

Across that river 
A life goes by 
Look inside the mirror 
And you will find out

In solitude I was born 
It crucified me 
Wearing a crown of thorns

I am 
Free now
Born to be a man 
Emptiness
Made me understand what lay hidden deep within

I am free now
Born to be the man 
Loveliness brushed away the sand 

From what’s hidden deep within 
Shapeless dream without a name 

Wrapped in frozen layers of life
Sings the song of what we all are
