    Modern Lifestyle

    Slow down, slow down, there's no need to run around
    Here's a new craze, a better mode of living
    Think it over, make the most of your time here
    Let me tell you, this is my own solution

    Don't care what the others say
    Look at me, I'll show you the way

    To a modern lifestyle.
    Live the modern lifestyle

    Lie down in the sun, have yourself a good time
    Pick up colours, wear them as a party dress
    Cruise around with friends and let all the others sweat
    All their orders are only there to be denied

    Don't care what the others say
    Look at me, I'll show you the way.

    To a modern lifestyle
    Live the modern lifestyle

    Face Fo Face - Heart To Heart

    I thought it would be easy to forget you
    For after all it's been such a long time
    And yet the memories of you still hurt me
    They've been inscribed with needles in my mind

    I'm sure I could convince you
    If only you would let us meet again

    Face to face - Heart to heart
    Face to face - Heart to heart

    Think back to when we were together
    How long we thought our mutual love would last
    How hard it was for us to leave each other
    Is all of that now buried in the past?

    I'm sure I could convince you
    If only you would let us meet again

    Face to face - Heart to heart...

    Regret

    Her look alone revealed
    That she was easy
    And so you took her
    With equanimity

    It soon became so clear
    How deeply she had fallen
    And you were quite prepared
    To play with her

    And the day will come
    When your mask will drop
    For you will understand
    she's irreplaceable
    you'll soon ask yourself
    What has caused her to change
    For you cannot feel
    What oppresses her

    And suddenly you want to hear
    Her confession of love
    But what she replies
    You will not understand

    Now the day has come
    Where she has left and you can see
    Nothing in life returns

    And now the day has come
    How your mask has dropped
    For you can understand
    she's irreplaceable

    Knights Of Old

    In colourful glory you rode across the heath
    Armour-plated with steel and armed to the teeth
    When you met with your foe you fought to the death
    And didn't give up until quite out of breath

    So where are you now
    You great knights of old
    Your honours betrayed
    And your castles are sold

    You took from the rich and you gave to the poor
    And rescued fair maidens who were near to death's door
    You went on crusades for justice and right
    And fought against evil with all of your might

    So where are they now
    The great knights of old
    In our time we need
    Such pillars of gold

    Automatic man

    Automatic man
    Slow-motion man
    Achievement of the century
    Wires instead of veins

    You have to be my subject
    You have to be my servant

    Automatic man
    Slow-motion man
    Heartless metal
    Circuit reactions

    You have to be my subject
    You have to be my servant

    Automatic man
    I'm unable to move

    New Days, New Ways

    The moment has come
    To take new steps
    Now you have to decide

    Name your destination
    Where can I find you
    Is that your place forever?

    Will you go with the masses
    Or do you have your own plans?
    There's a chance to realize ideas

    New days, new ways

    Don't hesitate any longer
    You have been confused
    Now you have to go in search

    After all those years
    You have to be yourself
    No doubt, It's now or never

    Will you go with the masses
    Or do you have your own plans?
    There 's a chance to realize ideas

    New days, new ways

    Gilded Cage

    Traces of a lonely one
    Tears in a silver cup
    I saw the silhouette
    Of somebody who followed me

    Im lying in a grave
    Someone is talking
    I try to hide my face
    Like the girl behind the folding screen

    Framed in eternal lies
    A whole life in disguise
    Stripes on the horizon
    My heart inside a case of glass

    Im a prisoner in a gilded cage
    Who's waiting for you

    I'm staying alive

    Surrounded by breath a voice discovers the way
    Serious words, the meaning without anger
    It talks about things I never wanted to hear
    Escaping is the end, truth has never been

    I'm staying alive with my sensitive mind
    I 'm staying alive, if there's someone to talk to beside me

    Hundreds of eyes in an ocean of tears
    My hand reaching and trying to feel
    The darkness disappears, I'm blinded by the light
    It's all so easy, if I feel I can talk to you

    I'm staying alive with my sensitive mind
    I'm staying alive, if there's someone to talk to beside me

    Birds And Dogs

    Piecing together my thoughts
    The way it all began
    Times are changing
    And my thoughts are lost in space

    Birds and dogs

    Something very special
    Had taken place in my life
    I'm thinking about the two of us
    And it turned me inside out

    Birds and dogs

    Now when hours seem longer
    I'll be alone with endless sounds and noise
    It won't break down, no chance to rest
    And it sounds like a thousand birds and dogs

    Seasons fading away
    There will always be tomorrow
    Restless shadows follow my rut
    Exploring to my inside

    Birds and dogs

    Now when hours seem longer...
