Track Name: Robot (Radio Edit)
ROBOT

on or off
but nothing in between
i prefer to think in steps
program me
reload my systems
afraid of what comes next

too many options
i need instructions
how will i decide
push my buttons
be my captain
take me for a ride

I WANNA BE A ROBOT
MADE OF CHROME
YOU CAN BE MY MECHANICAL FRIEND
SO I WON’T BE ALONE

out of focus
i need directions
prepare me for the tide
remote control me
arrange for progress
tell me where to draw the line

shift my gears
and push me forward
navigate my thoughts
burn the blueprints
make the wheels turn
connect me to the gods

I WANNA BE A ROBOT
MADE OF CHROME
YOU CAN BE MY MECHANICAL FRIEND
SO I WON’T BE ALONE

I WANNA BE A ROBOT
Track Name: Illuminate Me (Radio Edit)
Illuminate me

Up and down - Back and forward
Rattle the cage - To wake my mother
From black and white dreams and colorful spells
Into a different set of rooms – Where we don’t belong
A Serpent arrives - From out of the depths
Heading for the sun - Looking into my eyes
Illuminate me so I may see the light
Eliminate me so I cease to long for anything
Illuminate me so I can tell what’s right
Eliminate me so I come to know myself

I better run - Before you touch me
Tripping over my own feet I - Break open my head
Black and white flowers and colorful insects
Emerge from the wound – Too many to contain them
Footsteps in the sand - Lead out through a gate
Onto a winding path – in between two towers
Illuminate me so I may see the light
Eliminate me so I won’t remember anything
Illuminate me so I can sense what’s right
Eliminate me so I come to forget myself

High and Low - In laughter and in tears
Among ruins on a hill - Overlooking a dark sea
Of black and white words and colorful songs
Closing in around me – Stealing my breath
Answers appear – and convictions dissolve
We get ready for the flames – to embrace our souls

Illuminate me - Eliminate me - Illuminate me - Eliminate me
A dose of confusion - To bridge the gap
Building a ship - Within a bottle
Filled with black and white fears and colorful hopes
Afloat on an ocean – In search of meaning
Right here Right now - Death defeats life
Questioning my love – for everything around me

Illuminate me so I may see the light so I may see the light
Eliminate me so I transcend everything so I lose everything
Illuminate me so I shall do what’s right so I can feel what’s right
Eliminate me so I don’t get in the way of myself so I find what’s left of myself

Illuminate me - Eliminate me - Illuminate me - Eliminate me
Aliens and Angels came to illuminate me
Aliens and Angels came to eliminate me
Track Name: Re-Evolve (Radio Edit)
Re-Evolve

Reject your own thoughts and the system that spawned them
Reenter the password you better get it right
Reform your actions and the kingdom you’ll die for
Revolt against the laws that don’t make sense
Renew the blinding faith that bound your soul to this body
Reestablish equilibrium, express and live through art
Reveal the hidden source that fuels all desire
Retain your holy breath & release what holds you back

Rewire the paths, Reprogram yourself !
Re-evolve, Shed your skin, cross the line like nothing matters
Re-evolve, Re-emerge, be reborn into a new world
Re-evolve, change your course, like the savior walk on water
Re-evolve, Re-emerge, into the current of the one mind

Reject your own lies and the fools that invite them
Reenter the arena you better watch your back
Recollect the dreams and treasures you inherit
Return to where you’re from, remember who you are
Readjusting standards and the walls that enclose them
Reassess the facts go ahead and draw the line
Readmit the bright light that has the power to save us
Reclaiming balance to regain your peace of mind

Rewire the paths, Reprogram yourself !
Re-evolve, Shed your skin, cross the line like nothing matters
Re-evolve, Re-emerge, be reborn into a new world
Re-evolve, change your course, like the savior walk on water
Re-evolve, Re-emerge, into the current of the one mind

Rewire the paths, Reprogram yourself - Rewire the paths, Reprogram yourself

Refrain from repetition and from choosing blindly
Reconform to the plot you had chosen from the start
Reformat all beliefs, there’s no power to stop you
Reignite the fire that has always kept you safe
Redirect attention towards goals that really matter
Redevelop your senses and the gifts from above
Rebuild the cells and build a brand new self
Rediscover the truths from a time before the fall

Repeat CHORUS x 2
Track Name: Lost (Radio Edit)
Lost (Anthem For Agnostics)

I wish I would fall in love - And run into a soul mate
Who completes me, and fulfills me - And makes me whole
From one day to the next, my whole life could change
Every cell renewed, and every idea reborn
I can’t see you, in all this madness
I can’t hear you, while everyone is screaming
I can’t feel you, through this wall of distractions
I can’t love you, coz I’m too lazy

I wish I could find the cause - Discover the root of the problems
That engage me, and constrict me - And make me sick
Once the war is won, new ships take off from the shore
Every moment counts, and every man is doomed to die
I can’t see you, in all this madness
I can’t hear you, while everyone is screaming
I can’t feel you, through this wall of distractions
I can’t love you, coz I’m too busy

I wish I would forget the rules - While I’m climbing over fences
That divide us, and mislead us - And make us weak
The savior is only a myth, I only buy what I see
Every promise is heard, and every lie kills

Now I am lost, Now I am lost, Now I am lost, Now I am lost

Now I am lost, I stop to believe, Now I am lost, I forget to breathe
Now I am lost, I am anything but brave, Now I am lost, I erase all traces of faith
Now I am lost, I sink into a deep sleep, Now I am lost, I lie unconscious and I weep
Now I am lost, I renounce what you have shown, Now I am lost, I can’t see I’m not alone

I wish I could cease to exist - And stop to feel the longing
That surrounds us, and drowns us - And gets us lost
One life is not enough to win against the tide
Every wave hits home, and every breath hurts
I can’t see you, in all this madness
I can’t hear you, while everyone’s screaming
I can’t feel you, through this wall of distraction
I can’t love you, coz I’m too lazy
I can’t see you - now I am lost
I can’t hear you - now I am lost
I can’t feel you - now I am lost
I can’t love you - now I am lost

Track Name: Double Agents (Extended Version)
Double Agents

What if my guardian angel was not an angel but a demon?
What if it won’t stop raining and we’ll drown in our homes?
What if I left the gas on and I‘ll never wake from my dreams?
What if we turned around? Would we find the way back?

What if I’m not awake and life’s a hallucination?
What if the news are lies and the truth is locked away?
What if all who figure it out end up behind bars?
What if we caught on? Would it be too late?

What if we’re on the same side?
Double Agents trying to reinvent our boring lives
Could it be that it’s all lies?
Paranoia filtering the real world through my eyes

What if the bright white hallways I keep remembering are real?
What if the sunspots got worse and we’ll all go up in flames?
What if we moved into a parallel world and never came back?
What if I got it all wrong? Would that change a thing?

What if I stuck my head in the sand and finally stopped to worry?
What if I blew my brains out and you’d look the other way?
What if I turned off gravity and set my beliefs on fire?
What if I changed my mind? Would it be too late?

What if we’re on the same side?
Double Agents trying to reinvent our boring lives
Could it be that it’s all lies?
Paranoia filtering the real world through my eyes

What if we’re on the same side?
Double Agents trying to reinvent our boring lives
Could it be that it’s all lies?
Paranoia filtering the real world through my eyes

What if it’s too late? What if it’s too late?
What if it’s too late? What if it’s too late?
