I Come With Knives {Acoustic}

The paradox of our minds
Too much to believe, too much to deny
You fool me again to quiet my pride
But I’m a human, I come with knives

I never promised you an open heart or charity
I never wanted to abuse your imagination

I come with knives
I come with knives
And agony
I come with knives
I come with knives
To love you
With agony

Kinder und Sterne küssen und verlieren sich
Greifen leise meine Hand und führen mich
Die Traumgötter brachten mich in eine Landschaft
Schmetterlinge flatterten durch meine Seele
In der Mitternacht

The monotony
And the rising tide
Is under my skin, is crawling inside
Oh Adrenalin to rewire my mind
I’m only human, I come with knives

I never promised you an open heart or charity
I never wanted to abuse your imagination

I come with knives
I come with knives
And agony
I come with knives
I come with knives
To love you
With agony

Kinder und Sterne küssen und verlieren sich
Greifen leise meine Hand und führen mich
Die Traumgötter brachten mich in eine Landschaft
Schmetterlinge flatterten durch meine Seele
In der Mitternacht

Kiss And Swallow {Acoustic}

Do you pay for your crimes?
Does the punishment fit or drag your style to zero?
You’re nothing till the weekend

If you think that you’re the thrill
Take a look at your life, you kneel before your heroes
You’re nothing till the weekend

Could you care for the blind?
Tell me all in all they’re just your kind of zeros
Something for the weekend

And if you think that you can spell
Make a list of the cunts you’d send to hell and send them
Send them on the weekend

Echo echo, I know it’s a sin to kiss and swallow
Echo echo, a kick in your head to kill the hollow

Do you fear and abide?
Welcome the grip, open wide for anyone?
Are you something for the weekend?

Do you kiss and forget
And swallow the cunts no tears no regrets just living,
Living for the weekend?

Echo echo, I know it’s a sin to kiss and swallow
Echo echo, a kick in your head to kill the hollow

Are you listening?
Now, in the narrower sense
Are you listening?
I can hold you down
By candlelight with indifference
Let the comfort stop
I love you on your right side
It happens
The promise is broken
The reason is let go
It happens
Are you listening?

Mercy {Acoustic}

Mercy – well I melt in the kiss by the words and the whispers you sing me
Mercy – I’m frail in the kill by submission and will that you bring me
Mercy – when I’m nothing but ego you slap me to let go and sleep free
Now I sleep free

You’re my toybox and my memories
When I smell your skin you just make my whole world weep
I’m at your feet
Mercy

Mercy – when the grey turns to black and the wave’s on my back you make me smile
Mercy – it’s the trauma and martyr you crush into pleasure and downtime
Mercy – it’s the shining of you that just breaks me in two like a lifeline
You’re my lifeline

I’m the idiot to your poetry
And you burn and bleach everything and all I need
Is at your feet
Mercy

Mercy – are the licks and the lips of temptation just tricks not for playing?
Mercy – are you the camera suck gun slut to headphone fuck holes in my being?
Mercy – are you everything which put the sex into bitch or just faking?
Do you fake it?

So I celebrate your chemistry
If you bond with me, I could make your whole world sweet
I’m on my knees
Mercy

I Salute You Christopher {Acoustic}

(“In losing myself I find my true self. I am not alone in my feelings. Be brave. Fear is an illusion.”)
(“Du bist meine Verbindung in eine andere Welt.”)
(“I can see beauty and honesty. The world where black has become the color of triumph. A place where you can be understood as much as you would like to be understood.”)
(“To recognize freedom is to gain it. It has allowed me to recognize my own freedom. And in the end, this is what each of us is really looking for.”)
(“He’s my cathartic eidolon, my sonic messiah, a beacon of curative power to which I’m forever grateful.”)
(“Facing the end of the world, some turn to God, others – cocaine and whores, I – to IAMX.”)
(“After the darkest days of my life, the days of total ignorance and unawareness, you opened the world of happiness and heart seize for me. I’m sending you my love from Moscow.”)
(“I remember what sorrow and joy are when I had forgotten what loving life felt like.”)
(“Like a dance with an endless lover.”)
(“It simply makes me feel cooler.”)

I salute you Christopher
I salute your life
How you played the dice

Your words will live in us
Timelessly insane
Explosive, fresh and wise

Some may just forget
Some may close their eyes
Some may turn the tide

I salute you Christopher
Whiskey raised and downed
You risked and you took the crown

Console yourselves
That a scientific death is better than a fairy tale
Of the eternal life
Control yourselves
’cause the man in the sky is a tyrant and a lonely psychopath
Dreamed up to steal your minds

(“The lyrics and music express my deep inner feelings and thoughts.”)
(“Self-expression and the celebration of individuality. It is a place for likeminded eccentrics to co-exist.”)

A horseman on a trial
A brilliant gentle wreck
With a brutal mouth for press

No submit, no compromise
Saint Christopher of the truth
And a destroyer of smoke screens and threats

They will learn to see in time
They will think before they refuse
The civilisation rules

I salute you Christopher
I declare you as our king
Or queen, depending on your mood

Console yourselves
That a scientific death is better than a fairy tale
Of the eternal life
Control yourselves
’cause the man in the sky is a tyrant and a lonely psychopath
Dreamed up to steal your minds

(“It’s how I feel.”)
(“A sense of tribe. It’s pushed me out of my comfort zone in ways I never imagined.”)
(“A luminous embodiment of exquisite beauty empowers the mind, ignites my spirit with possibilities.”)

Console yourselves
That a scientific death is better than a fairy tale
Of the eternal life
Control yourselves
’cause the man in the sky is a tyrant and a lonely psychopath
Dreamed up to steal your minds

(“I remember my biggest fear, my biggest challenge. You gave me my superpower. And now I feel beautiful.”)
(“It’s helped me claw my way out of a four year depression, without which I think I would have felt quite lost.”)
(“It is my escape. It’s what grounds me. It’s my tribe. And it’s my lifeline.”)

The Background Noise {Acoustic}

I’ve got a big house
I’ve got a fast car
I believe, I am free
I’m a good citizen
Proud of my children
I love my wife
I love my life

But something isn’t sitting right
Something wakes me up at night
The background noise

My government respects me
My gun is my security
My wealth accounts
My loyalty counts
I abide by society
I give to charity
I turn to faith when I cannot explain

You Can Be Happy {Acoustic}

You walked into the world
As a super human boy and girl
In the blinking of your eyes
I was born and sold by your manifesto

It’s a cruel world for small things
But with lies and luxuries
In the in-between
You can be happy

You put me in a cage
In the daily maze of flesh and rage
But I will follow every truth
I won’t let you go
I want every tomorrow

And now I am afraid
You will blossom soon and grow and change
There is so much I can’t take
But I will understand
I will open my hand

You can be happy

There’s an open window
And I can go through
Into the life of others
There’s nothing I can’t do

Bernadette {Acoustic}

You and me in our playhouse
Living in a veil
We never need to go without
Memories bring no joy or peace
We are alone
And all we need

Tuning out of the poison
Every waking day
Intolerance to overcome
Fortunes won by the boys with the guns
We are alone
Nowhere to run

Bernadette
You are my liberty
I celebrate the day
That you changed my history
Life and death
Will always lead you into love and regret
But you have answers
And I have the key
For the door to Bernadette

Winding down our emotions
Family and friends
Becoming ghosts to dream of and pass on
Time will erase every face every name
We are alone
No-one to blame

Bernadette
You are my liberty
I celebrate the day
That you changed my history
Life and death
Will always lead you into love and regret
But you have answers
And I have the key
For the door to Bernadette

Spit It Out {Acoustic}

And if you’re hurting,
I will replace the noise with silence instead
Flushing out your head
If you like it violent
We can play rough and tumble, fall into bed
And I won’t breathe so you can recover

When you’re in pieces
Just follow the echo of my voice, it’s okay
Tune into that frequency
Don’t fight your reflex
Embrace the instict you can feel your way
Through the burden we face in the end

’cause it breaks my heart
That we live this way
I know people need love
But people never play the game
And we talk the talk
We communicate
But then people need love
And those people never play the game

Pleasure for pleasure
A tease is consequence enough for a fall
But I know you love to take the risk
The past is weakness
Don’t beg the question when the answer is war
There are moments when I’m overcome

’cause it breaks my heart
That we live this way
I know people need love
But people never play the game
And we talk the talk
We communicate
But then people need love
And those people never play the game

And it breaks my heart

People need love

Insomnia {Acoustic} 

The day is incomplete
The thoughts of total defeat
I don’t know what is happening to me
Or if I’ll die ‘cause I just never sleep

You awoke into my night
You could see the madness in my eyes

I’ve lost control please save me from myself

My conscience begs for time
But you can’t fight the clock ticking inside
I’m just a bigger baby me
Acting smart, oh what irony

Where will I end up tonight?
Getting fucked or frying my mind?

I’ve lost control please save me from myself

Calm me down with your caress
I’ll get off while I watch you undress
Maybe the sex will help me to forget
A precious transience, schizophrenic bliss

Oh my god you’re beautiful
Why do you stay with this neurotic fool?

The Power and the Glory {Acoustic}

Here am I
The divided self
My head spinning like a carousel
The world outside may still be beautiful
But I love this cell

Come over
You are still sane
I could give you just a little brawn if you give me a little brains
It’s a mess in here, I’ve been drinking
Myself blind again

My legs are numb, I just can’t get up
Will you stay through the theatre
Of my self-pity, my lechery?

I’m waiting for your guiding light to bring me back
To the power and the glory

Send messages
Old suggestive shit
I know that it will catch me up, but I just can’t help it
There’s an emptiness in my core
It’s embarrassing

Reel me in
Yes I will confess
I’m numb and I don’t give a fuck ‘cause it’s all just surface
Why can’t you and I just let go
And take all the risks?

Surrender {Acoustic} 

Checking my heart again
It’s still beating
Grayer than winter days
The clouds in my head

All my life
I’ve been changing lanes
I’m so bored of taking my chances
Of making mistakes

Now I need to surrender
Oh I want to surrender

Years in a concrete box
TV, vodka shots
Breaking my knees on stage
Repeat and get up again

All my life
I’ve been changing lanes
I’m so bored of taking my chances
Of making mistakes

Now I need to surrender
Oh I want to surrender

Freaks are dying
Where did we go Berlin?
