Venus Lyrics

1. Venus (1:31)
[Instrumental]
2. Missing The Last Train (6:15)
There's a willing crowd
In a distant land
Clinging to the words of their leader

There's a censored press
Printing propaganda
Disguised as the truth for the reader

For food or religion
For land or for pride
For traditions or just for the glory

The page is turned
For another chapter
Of the same old story

Again we see how they are marching on
To the beat of the same old drum
Don't they know this mad story has
No happy ending

So far, so good
Here we are
The clean slate is showing a red stain

So far, so good
Here we are
And hope that we're not missing the last train

But as life makes no deal
We can't turn back the wheel
And the last train leaves right on time

All of them have their own reasons
All of them have their own fears
All of them pray to some God
To make it turn out right

All of them leave their own families
And think it's worth the price
Because everyone thinks it's him
Who's fighting the good fight

So here they are in the same old church
There's a priest who's blessing arms one more time
They say their prayers to a wooden cross
But who will listen

So far, so good
Here we are
The clean slate is showing a red stain

So far, so good
Here we are
And hope that we're not missing the last train

But as life makes no deal
We can't turn back the wheel
And the last train leaves right on time

Again we see how they are marching on
To the beat of the same old drum
Don't they know this mad story has
No happy ending

So far, so good
Here we are
The clean slate is showing a red stain

So far, so good
Here we are
And hope that we're not missing the last train

But as life makes no deal
We can't turn back the wheel
And the last train leaves right on time
3. Real Me (2:33)
I should have known in the beginning
It had to reach a bitter end
To play the knight in shining armour
When I was just a simple man

But I became the one you wanted
And for a while it all made perfect sense
So I believed telling you lies was
Just an act of self defense

So it goes
Don't we all know the story
Of princes and frogs
And dreams colliding with real life

Well, it shouldn't have come as a surprise
You could have been well prepared for this
You could have seen it in my eyes
If you had looked there once

I never liked telling you lies
I've always hoped at last you'd see
The man behind the disguise
The real me
4. Information Overdose (5:04)
There you sit with glassy eyes
Staring at that oversize
Computer-screen in front of you
The whole day and night long

Entangled in that world wide web
Did the head below your baseball-cap
Ever wonder if in your life something
Might be going wrong

You've got an information overdose
That's a fact that you can't conceal
Your world is made of bits and bytes
But there's a world outside that is for real

Your girlfriend lives in New York
You've got to know her in cyberspace
You say that you're in love but will you
Ever meet her face to face

To have a thousand friends
Around the whole wide world is what you claim
But how come in your neighbourhood
No one at all knows your name

You've got an information overdose
That's a fact that you can't conceal
Your world is made of bits and bytes
But there's a world outside that is for real

This world's become a crazy place
The magic left without a trace
Sober-minded concepts took the place
That dreams once had

We've got pills for every little thing
Only health they never seem to bring
It's a crazy place indeed

Everyone is smiling bright
Everybody feels alright
For every problem there's another drug
To drown the pain

Technology saves time they say
So who took all the time away
It's a crazy place indeed

There you sit with glassy eyes
Staring at that oversize
Computer-screen in front of you
The whole day and night long

Entangled in that world wide web
Did the head below your baseball-cap
Ever wonder if in your life something
Might be going wrong

You've got an information overdose
That's a fact that you can't conceal
Your world is made of bits and bytes
But there's a world outside that is for real
5. Restless Heart (4:29)
Restless heart
Inside of me
Will you ever let me find the place
Where I was meant to be

Heart of stone
Heart of gold
One day full of love and warmth
But the next day full of cold

Sure, I remember
Those good days we had
It's true, we've been making plans
How could I forget

Sometimes "forever"
Means just "longer than a day"
Some say they'll never leave you
But then they simply turn and walk away

I don't know
The reason why
Against all my best intentions
My intentions always die

Though I try to stay
I will soon be gone
Somehow it seems that I am just not one
To rely on

Sure, I remember
Those good days we had
It's true, we've been making plans
How could I forget

Sometimes "forever"
Means just "longer than a day"
Some say they'll never leave you
But then they simply turn and walk away

Sure, I remember
Those good days we had
It's true, we've been making plans
How could I forget

Sometimes "forever"
Means just "longer than a day"
Some say they'll never leave you
But then they simply turn and walk away
6. What Do We Know (7:01)
Since the first days
Of mankind's existence
We have spent most of the time
Searching for answers
To all of the questions
Going around in our minds

What do we know
About the plans life makes for us
What do we know
About what we really are
What do we know

Now and then
There were people pretending
They had all the answers in store
Prophets, magicians
Experts and politicians
What were they ever good for

How could they know
What tomorrow holds for us
What do they know
That we don't know ourselves

Bring on all those experts
Let them show what they have got
Until we come to the conclusion
It is better they shut up

Hot air is all they can offer
Their empty hands have nothing to show
Hot air packed in technical terms
To explain what they don't know

Expert predictions
We all used to trust
Have led us into more than one mess
To me there's just one
Logical explanation
In fact they're just making a guess

How could they know
What tomorrow holds for us
What do they know
That we don't know ourselves

Bring on all those experts
Let them show what they have got
Until we come to the conclusion
It is better they shut up

Hot air is all they can offer
Their empty hands have nothing to show
Hot air packed in technical terms
To explain what they don't know

Can you imagine
Living in a world without mysteries
How would that feel
All I can say is
I honestly hope
Some secrets remain unrevealed

What do we know
About the plans life makes for us
What do we know
About what we really are
What do we know

8. Reply (7:43)
I found it right here on the table
That letter you left for me today
Just a handful of scribbled words
And most of it sounds quite absurd

Do you know the feeling
I know the feeling well
To go into the great unknown
Knowing all the doors behind are shut

You did not leave an address so I guess
You had no interest
In my possible reply
Though I've never been a man of words
Right now there is a thing or two
I would really like to say

Do you know the feeling
I know the feeling well
To be hurt but try to hide it
To know the truth but still deny it
To put on a brave face

I could have stood the pain
The tears and the blame
I could have stood those eyes fixed upon me
But what I just can't accept
Is the simple fact
You just quietly went out of here

I know we went from day to day
Trying not to state what was clear
For both of us to see
If it had to come to an end
Then why not do it with
A shred of honesty

Do you know the feeling
I know the feeling well
To always search but never find
To run but still be left behind
To finish second best

I could have stood the pain
The tears and the blame
I could have stood those eyes fixed upon me
But what I just can't accept
Is the simple fact
You just quietly went out of here

How could it ever hurt so bad
Where it used to feel so good

I won't ask you to come back
I won't ask you to stay
But I want you to listen to
What I've got to say

I don't want your apology
I don't need your sympathy
All I want from you is
Just a minute of your time

May I please remind you it was you who said
I was too reserved
Right from the start
And now you slam that door on me
When I was just about to come right in
And open up my heart

Do you know the feeling
I know the feeling well
When the best you give is not enough
To not let good times get rough
To not let it all start again

I could have stood the pain
The tears and the blame
I could have stood those eyes fixed upon me
But what I just can't accept
Is the simple fact
You just quietly went out of here
9. Not For Sale (6:37)
Just another Monday morning
I'm pushing my way through the traffic jam
Nothing really seems to move
I'm trying to get ahead the best I can

I start thinking about my life
And about what let me get this far
Is a tiny little wheel inside a big machine
Really all we are

Not today
This day is mine
Everything's just perfect
I can feel the whole world's gently swinging my way

After all
That I've been through
All that lies behind me
It feels like there's a whole new life and it's just begun

I get right out of my car
I feel that I've got better things to do
Can't see yet what that might be
But it's a fact a change was overdue

I know it is not always wise
To simply run away
But I don't mind the consequences
At least not today

This day is mine
Everything's just perfect
I can feel the whole world's gently swinging my way

After all
That I've been through
All that lies behind me
It feels like there's a whole new life and it's just begun

Ask yourself if you really are
The one you want to be
Look around and say if you see
What you wish there would be

Every now and then our balance slips away
Every now and then what we get isn't worth the price we pay

I'm tired of trying to meet
Someone else's expectations
For the price of missing my own
That just gave me frustration

That chase for money
Was a plan that surely had to fail
So my decision's clear, from this day on I am
Not for sale

This day is mine
Everything's just perfect
I can feel the whole world's gently swinging my way

After all
That I've been through
All that lies behind me
It feels like there's a whole new life and it's just begun
10. Until The Day Breaks (8:24)
I know a story
That I'd really like to tell you
You might not believe me
But I swear every word is true

It sounds like one of those
That you normally read
In strange and cheap magazines
But this one is different
You can take it from me
Because the person it tells of is me

Moonlight
You're my only reason to live (tonight)
Stir my passion, stir my instincts
Cast my shadow on the wall

Moonlight
You're the only bride that I need (by my side)
Feed my senses, feed my hunger
Feed my spirit, feed my soul

When I was a young boy
I felt I did not have the same
Ideas as the others
So at first I was hiding in shame

Something was calling me outside
In cold and moonlit nights
So I had to accept I possessed
Some really strange passions
But the strangest obsession
Was a certain preference for blood

Moonlight
You're my only reason to live (tonight)
Stir my passion, stir my instincts
Cast my shadow on the wall

Moonlight
You're the only bride that I need (by my side)
Feed my senses, feed my hunger
Feed my spirit, feed my soul

You all know who I am
You meet me every now and then
Before the day breaks

My guise is not what it seems
I'll haunt you in your dreams
Until the day breaks

You deny me in daylight
But you're afraid every night
Until the day breaks

I'll haunt you like your shadow

I'm your illegal child
That you're trying to hide
I'm your secret lover
You're trying to keep undercover
The black page in your past
That she'll find out at last
I'm every sleepless night
I'm your hopeless fight
I'm the promise you did break
I'm the truth that you can't fake
I'm your conscience, your fear
So I will always be here

I'll haunt you like your shadow

Moonlight
You're my only reason to live (tonight)
Stir my passion, stir my instincts
Cast my shadow on the wall

Moonlight
You're the only bride that I need (by my side)
Feed my senses, feed my hunger
Feed my spirit, feed my soul
