Was there ever an incarnate that has not yearned for a change?
Was there an eye open or do we meet the standards?
Have you ever faced clear all the dreams in your hands?
Have you ever asked questions about the hands that feed you?

(To see If we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind
Not accept things as they are
But to understand it, to go into it, to examine it
Give you heart and your mind with everything that you have to find out
A way of living differently
But that depends on you and not somebody else)

Layers, fill our truth in layers for the martyrs to come
Mankind assumed their lifes of being shepherds
For the less evolved on the curiosity path

Deny the referent laws
Obey to apstractions so you could know
That we're still close to nothing
On our way to nothing

As we're waiting for our youth
Alone and afraid
All dreams stay untold
Respect the future as unknown
As we're waiting for our youth
Defined but deranged
All dreams stay untold
With all our mentors gone

(There's no leader, there's no master, no saviour
You yourself are the teacher and the pupil
You are the master, you are the guru, you are the leader
You are everything)

We have our own liberty to abhore the paradox standing
In front of our creativity
In the core of our rights

Make us
Grasp our freedom?
Make a perfect image!
Long for the strings placed upon your will
And a new start falling into your purpose
Make it strong enough
Engage in a game stating us the same
As examples for the newborn shouting „why?“
Deny the referent laws
Obey to apstractions so you could know
That still distance means darkness
All the way to darkness

Progression with no meaning
When the time is up!

Prepare your lessons
All what's learned but never believed
When the outer planes always show the difference
Of the true essence of existence
