songs from the realm of biPolar disOrder


he who reigns

the king reigns, isn´t it so?
but what if in the end, there are none to reign over?


won´t the King feel a little sad and lonley then?
scared, even

sometimes

turn
to others for guidance


if where you go don´t do you no good

he who wants

oh, how he wants
desperately

...but never will he get involved - no emotions allowed, nor desired, nor nothing. what a fate!

eerie,

is that feeling
that of being watched

in the shadows, at night, in the light of day
that of being told what to do, at every turn
eerie...

so simple

it would be,
if someone just told you

to hit the brakes before it´s too late

and you listened...

in life

you sometimes want to try things out
different stuff

that sometimes backfires
in a way, terribly
in a way, beautifully!

just for a moment

that feeling,
washing through you

love, enlightenment
just a glimpse
lingers

spent

the weekend with the best of friends
i, rockin´

how very nice it was
then they were all gone
and it wasn´t nice at all :(

you know,

those rotten days
the ones that take no prisoners

the weather forecast

says clouds are coming

and you can´t stop them
for haven´t you honed the skill?

that of going with the downward flow
spiralling

life

is so precious

yet some will want
to give it

up

there are times

when even those who do not believe

pray
because there is no other way

this song

not at all written as a

prayer
but the years molded it into
one

title play the music
i was king
reel it in
i don´t wanna feel nothin
play me
solo
godly
gutsji bama
the fall

mr. scotchman

i was a sailor,
the sea was mine
i was a pilot,
the skies were mine
i was a lion,
the fields were mine

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
i was king

i was the ocean,
the sailors were mine
i was the clouds up above,
the pilots were mine
i was a sun torn field,
the lions were mine

i had a kindom,
i was king
i had a kingdom,
i was king
i had the Kingdom Come,
i was king

now reel it in, boy
reel it in
that thought´s too big for you
reel it in, boy
reel it in
that thought just might
destroy you

and if you ever get such
a grand idea again
and if i´m not standing by
your side
know that you can always,
always turn to Him
he´ll tell you clean
what´s right, what´s right
what´s right

you had these visions
beautiful visions
like you´d never had before
you had these visions
beautiful visions
that would open every door

and if you ever get such
a grand idea again
and if i´m not standing by
your side
know that you can always,
always turn to Him
he´ll tell you clean
what´s right, what´s right
what´s right

now reel it in, boy
reel it in
that thought´s too big for you
reel it in, boy
reel it in
that thought just might
destroy you

i don´t wanna go where you wanna go,
i don´t wanna see what you wanna show
take me to the heavens and way beyond,
let me be your player
let me be the one

i don´t wanna feel nothin´
i don´t wanna feel nothin´
i don´t wanna feel nothin´

you can be my butterly
and flap your floppy wings
you be the designer of
unspeakeable things
you the map, you the key
you know i won´t be lost
i don´t wanna feel nothin´
i don´t wanna feel nothin´
i don´t wanna feel nothin´

let there be nothin´ to hold me
nothin´ at all

you play me like a guitar
i do your bidding
i do it
all the time
and that´s ok

you play me like a guitar
i do your bidding
all the time
and that´s ok

i crawl for you baby
i crawl for you baby
yeah
that´s what i do
i crawl for you master
yeah
i crawl for you
i crawl for you baby
baby, master, baby

you play me like a guitar
that´s what you do
yeah
you play me like a guitar

i crawl for you master
you play me like a guitar
and i crawl for you master
that´s what i do
that´s what you do
that´s what we do

listen, listen
what i´m about to tell you
is very, very important
it could change
everything
for you

i just wanted to go there again
i just wanted to hum that tune with you
one more time
i just wanted to go there again
i just wanted to hum that tune with you
one more time
but you say

that solo
that solo
is not for you

i just wanted to go there again
i just wanted to hum that tune with you
one more time
i just wanted to go there again
i just wanted to hum that tune with you
one more time
but you say

that solo
that solo
is not for you

listen, listen
you really need to get this
into your head

hmm,
i think we´ll start with the chorus
yeah!

sing along
sing along
you know i won´t be
heartbroken

i had these ideas
that i wanted to test
there were among them some quite unusual
for the rest of you, but
i did not want them to be as bad as you
might think
and i did not want to feel like a
nonhuman
as i did
god is in me
god was without
and i could do nothing but sit back and
laugh and shout
cause i lost all my senses
but got more control
a goddess was in me
was my heart and was my
soul

sing along
sing along
you know i won´t be
heartbroken
i had these ideas
i wanted to test
there were among them some quite unusual
for the rest of you...

there´s something very nice
so nice
going on inside of me
and i had hunch, a big hunch
it was coming
just how i could not see

ohooooh
oooooooh
it was almost like benares, you know
under that old tree
only i was on the ocean
it came flowing over me
a river of love that set me free

ohooooh
oooooohooo

you offered me a future
so bright
said i can do whatever i like
though i kinda already knew it
it meant the world to me
come on give me a hug you said and we
closed that deal

ohooo
ooohooo

oh, everythin´s so new now, so new
yet everythin´s the same
thoguht i´d hit the right path from
here on and in
then i realized that´s where
i´ve always been

ohooo

thought i´d hit the right path from
here on and in
then i realized that´s where
i´ve always been

i´m sitting at the mike
my body has gone on a strike
cannot find no words to sing
and i feel like i cannot win

coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win
coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win

i´m walking down the street
facing no one that i meet
my head turned down
wanna find a hole in the ground
and disappear

coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win
coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win

lying flat out on the couch
lying flat out on my bed
can´t remember what he said
the shrink with the bright side
all i want is to hide

coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win
coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win

the phone rings
i let it ring
i´m curious of no things
everything is black and damp and cold
and i feel like i cannot cope no more

coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win
coz everything is just so bad these days
and i feel like i cannot win
feel like i cannot win

you say there are
clouds
hangin´over you
dark clouds
hangin´ over you
and they just won´t go away
no matter what you do
they just keep
hangin´ over you

you say you´ve got trouble
comin´ your way
yeah big trouble
comin down your way
and you don´t know what to do about it
no matter how hard you think
still it seems there´s trouble
coming down your way

i wish i could help you
tell you what to do
i wish i could
chase those clouds away
but they just keep
hangin´ over you

you say you care ´bout nothin´
not you, not me
eyes wide open
you still can´t see
you don´t do nothin´ ´bout it at all
cause that´s just what it´s like
you don´t care
´bout nothin´ at all

you say there are clouds
hangin´ over you
dark clouds
hangin´ over you
and they just won´t go away
no matter what you do
they just keep
hangin´ over
you

one bottle down
one more to go
don´t really care
which way the wind blows
cause i´m sittin´ in a dreary, old pub
and the night is a´comin´ on
the night is a´comin on

if the bitch at the bar
were my little bitch,
and the ass next to her
grabbed her ass like he does
i´d smack her up real good
now i couldn´t care less
i couldn´t care less

hey mr. scotchman
speak your soothing words
hey mr. scotchman
you know how i
hurt
sooth me now
there, there
sooth me now

stumble through the door
into the street
icy wind blowing right up my sleeve
i don´t know where to go
there´s only one road

the rope or the river

the cliff, the cold night
whispers through the din
let go of your fright
the bottles are all empty now
this is it, time to go
time to go

hey mr. scotchman
speak your soothing words
hey mr. scotchman
you know how i
hurt
sooth me now
there, there
sooth me now

sooth me now

wash away
wash away

wash away
wash away

wash away, wash away
the stains of that
wearying day

wash away, wash away
the joys of that
glorious day

take me to that
quiet place

take me to that
quiet place

take me to that
quiet place

take me to that
quiet place

wash away, wash away
the stains of that
wearying day


wash away, wash away
the stains of that
wearying day

take me to that
quiet place

wash away, wash away
the joys of that
glorious day

wash away, wash away
the joys of that
glorious day

take me to that
quiet place

take me to that
quiet place

quiet place
