Kaleidoscope Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Innocent? (5:10)
Wading through the oceans of minced dreams
while they puke some little pieces of
surreal truth to feed the stupid crowd
The endless kiss of him that made them proud
so the rigid lens gives you
the perfect view
into the heated
heart of bloody polished steel
and
as they started dancing (on mutilated humanity)
you can hear them paying homage to their
unknown fear
See what we have given you
See what we can do for you
We just do what we are told
We must do what we are told
for religion we are sold
We just do what we are told
for religion we are sold
all we touch is dead and cold
And while they exorcise what they believe
always flagging honour and justice
vindication for their blinded greed
so that you can play the innocent
'cause you learned how to behave
in a
virtuell world that's
full of mutilated dreams
and
as they started dancing (on mutilated humanity)
you can hear them paying homage to their
unknown fear
See what we can give for you
See what we have done for you
all we have is here before you
accept our lives, we must implore you
2. Sphere Eclipse (6:08)
Blind by science, stained by blood
You look down to this global cage
filled up with misery and pain
(presented as) a coffin for your punishment
While the religion gives the sense
in praying to an imperfect might
Accepting the mutilated
bodies of little babies
as payment for the luxury of
a so called real and poor church
Somewhere they lost the meaning
twisted it never seeing
there's no justification
for this runaway creation
Nothing is true and nothing is false
while no one can build or destroy
worlds in less than seven days
Nothing is gained and nothing is lost
It's all a game that has no rules
Reality is insepted by
reality so all we see is
created by electron waves
that flow out of a living screen
The truth is portrayted just like a show
where hate rules all the winners take nothing
While a hypocritical humanity
sends frozen kisses to a
tortured people lawn-mowing
the endless mind of
different thoughts projected
by clean white coats in a
castle of science no one
can control and what's more
Nothing is true and nothing is false
while one can build or destroy
worlds in less than seven days
Nothing is gained and nothing is lost
It's all a game that has no rules
played by men and won by fools
3. Dance on a Volcano (5:45)
Holy Mother of God
You've got to go faster than that to get to the top
Dirty old mountain
All covered in smoke, she can turn you to stone
So you better start doing it right
better start doing it right

You're halfway up and you're halfway down
And the pack on your back is turning you around
Throw it away, you won't need it up there, and remember
You don't look back whatever you do
Better start doing it right

On your left and on your right
Crosses are green and crosses are blue
Your friends didn't make it through
Out of the night and out of the dark
Into the fire and into the fight
Well that's the way the heroes go, ho! Ho! Ho!

Through a crack in Mother Earth
Blazing hot, the molten rock
Spills out over the land
And the lava's the lover who licks your boots away, hey! Hey! Hey!
If you don't want to boil as well
B - B - Better start the dance
D - D - Do you want to dance with me

The music's playing, the notes are right
Put your left foot first and move into the light
The edge of this hill is the edge of the world
And you're going to cross you better start doing it right
better start doing it right
4. Dreaming (3:45)
(instrumental)
5. Heartbeat (6:46)
In the shadow of our industry
we constructed all these big machines
symbolizing what we want to be
superpowers of insanity
Accepting all of this bureaucracy
content to be another wannabe
obscured by all of this complexity
consumed as fuel for even bigger dreams
Little voices saying please sign here
you know these children are too young my dear
and the endless sound of moving parts
replaced the rhythm of their strained hearts
While the wheels continue turning
We still believe in sold out learning
in the center are these blinded eyes
masked by a melted fire out of ice
Answers finally came to me
inside a plastic strawberry
Creeping through your cancered skin
Remember that your life is a sin
Lost like a heartbeat
we will never hear
Caught by the house of coldness
we all fear
And in our blindness we can't see
the ghost of all we used to be
In the daylight of our destiny
Swimming in reflected vanity
So you smoke another cigarette
One more thing in life that you'll regret
While the wheels continue turning
we still believe in sold out learning
in the center are these blinded eyes
masked by a melted fire out of ice
Lost like a heartbeat
we will never hear
Caught by the house of coldness
we all fear
and in our blindness we can't see
the ghost of all we used to be
6. Shadow Walker (6:35)
He was thinking it out
and started writing it down
the crazy thoughts in his head
He was on a roll
to find his self control
but it was taking it's toll
instead
Meanwhile outside
as the normal crowd
did their daily thing
they were caught in a swing
when they looked at their leaders
they were full of doubt
He couldn't figure them out
It was a journey down
into his deepest dreams
against the normal streams
wasn't totally clear
But he knew it was here
what he was trying to be
Yeah
And outside his door
was the camera light
that devouered the night
what a terrible sight
it was spilling grace
and wisdom over the crowd
made them feel so proud
Walking - a member of the crowd
Talking - chit-chat without a doubt
Feeling - cancelled from the normal life
Living - on the shadow side
Out of the dark - I will dive into the light
I will - gonna rise up from the crowd
I will - be a star in TV land
That's right - be a hero for a day
I will - gonna fill the headline news
Yes me - with the things that I will do
Solution - for their senseless talk
I will - be a star in TV land
~Shadow Walker~
Silent dreamings, silent dreamings
and with a final thought
of his new glory he sought
he felt the time drawing near
So when he started to dress
he knew he wanted his best
took a look what he had
in here
When everything was in place
he finally put on his face
a last and lovely smile
keep it on for a while
Then he started to stroke
the pistol's cold black cheek
it was shiny and sleek
Walking - a member of the crowd
Talking - chit-chat without a doubt
Feeling - cancelled from the normal life
Living - on the shadow side
Out of the dark - I will dive into the light
I will - gonna rise up from the crowd
I will - be a star in TV land
That's right - be a hero for a day
I will - gonna fill the headline news
Yes me - with the things that I will do
Solution - for their senseless talk
I will - be a star in TV land
So he shot at the light
paralizing the night
with the ordiance of might
it was over so fast
he walked out of the shadows
and then into the past
oh yeah
Then it hit him so hard
like a fallen star
and left a permanent scare
this is what you are
He'd become one of those
that he hated the most
ruling a mindless crowd
Walking - a member of the crowd
Talking - chit-chat without a doubt
Feeling - cancelled from the normal life
Living - on the shadow side
Out of the dark - I will dive into the light
I will - gonna rise up from the crowd
I will - be a star in TV land
That's right - be a hero for a day
I will - gonna fill the headline news
Yes me - with the things that I will do
Solution - for their senseless talk
I will - be a star in TV land
~Shadow Walker~
7. Sabre Dance (2:46)
(instrumental)
8. Misunderstanding (5:03)
I belong to those from somewhere
nowhere, everywhere
We constructed your race
for a special task
At last you failed
You'll be wiped out
Without a warning he appeared
in between all of these grey hired old men
We called them the world presidents
They ask him for just ten more years
and so he granted it
Freedom peace and all the
things we'd wished before
were no longer visions
They had all come true
On the tenth year
the world awaits
From nowhere again he appears
and told us once more we had failed
You were not built for love and peace
You were to be the killer race
without emotion
It's not for you to understand
the reason for the things we planned
So we will erase what you've done
because you've failed once again
It doesn't matter why
9. About Science (6:21)
The pale sun spits a slow death down
to this blinded mankind
while the wooden horse of science
elevates a grey hell to the sky
So the little superbrains
declare madness for sense
and fear, the mother of
all social violence
eats tiny pieces of
normal life as tribute for
general apathy
The blue moon pukes compassion over
a world of concrete emotion
Researchers found some new lines
in their hymbooks and they read
So the little superbrains
confused by their control
now will this be the end
or be the new way
Final death - we will see
the future of - can it be
look into my eyes
Controlled by confusion
Confused by control
They feel like magicians
in our tortured world
Science now - the unstoppable
Weapon of - masterminds
Sacrificed - all the knowledge of
normal life - to their cause
Science
So the little superbrains
declare madness for sense
and fear, the mother of
all social violence
eats tiny pieces of
normal life as tribute for
general apathy
One last experiment
gives us a second sight
too late the mirror of
all that's be done in fright
is slowly steamed up by
one more network of lies
losing all control
Controlled by confusion
Confused by control
They feel like magicians
in our tortured world
Controlled by confusion
Confusion...
