angels and ministers of grace defend us! be thou a spirit of health or goblin damn’d, bring with thee airs from heaven or blasts from hell, be thy intents wicked or charitable, thou com’st in such a questionable shape that I will speak to thee – speak to thee – speak to thee speak to thee – speak to thee I’ll call thee Hamlet / I’ll call thee Hamlet, o answer me. it will not speak, then I will follow it – follow it I do not set my life at a pin‘s fee, and for my soul, what can it do to that, and for my soul, what can it do to that, being a thing immortal as itself; it waves me forth again – forth again – forth again, I’ll follow it. – (I’ll) follow it. – (I’ll) follow it. I’ll call thee Hamlet / I’ll call thee Hamlet, king, father, royal Dane / king, father, royal Dane. o answer me. what may this mean, that thou. / dead corse, again in complete steel revisits thus the glimpses of the moon, / making night hideous / and we fools of nature so horridly to shake our disposition - our disposition / with thoughts beyond the reaches of our souls? with thoughts beyond the reaches of our souls? / say why is this? wherefore? say why is this? wherefore? I’ll call thee Hamlet / I’ll call thee Hamlet, king, father, royal Dane / king, father, royal Dane.

The Healer 04:21
stay ‚till I know, ‚till you show, who is the leader please let me cope, give me hope, I shall receive why would I sway, should I play, the roman heathen fall on my sword, so you know, that I believe I will follow you through deserts (I will) follow through the snow I am dancing madly sideways I am falling in slow-mo although you know I won‘t let go and still I grow, and I know, there is a healer all, saints and scum, come undone, I am his son I will bless you in the desert I will bless you in the snow you‘ll be dancing madly sideways I will send you down below until I know you can let go the time has come for healers the time has come – for us until I know you can let go the time has come for healers the time has come – for us until I know you can let go the time has come for healers the time has come – for what?

Closer 04:28
closer / dramatic score and a mother who could not stay with the other / refugees in this hell later / showing no mercy / we capture an angry mob with a liar / who couldn‘t pretend anymore come closer / please close my eyes and stay / so close to me your island will be lost and found again closer / she took my heart and she left her confusion here instead / like stale air in my head come closer / please close my eyes and stay / so close to me your island will be lost and found again / again closer / our eyes dried out and I told her “I came, I saw, I conquered” / just trying to make it work come closer / come closer come closer / please close my eyes and stay / so close to me your island will be lost and found again come closer now / this close to me my heart

Remembrance 03:54
mine eye hath play‘d the painter and hath stell‘d thy beauty‘s form in table of my heart; my body is the frame wherein ‚tis held, and perspective it is the painter‘s art. for through the painter must you see his skill, to find where your true image pictured lies; which in my bosom‘s shop is hanging still, hat hath his windows glazed with thine eyes. now see what good turns eyes for eyes – now see what good turns eyes for eyes have done: now see what good turns eyes for eyes have done: mine eyes have drawn thy shape, and thine for me are windows to my breast, where-through the sun delights to peep, to gaze therein on thee; now see what good turns eyes for eyes – now see what good turns eyes for eyes have done: yet eyes this cunning want to grace their art; they draw but what they see, know not the heart. now see what good turns eyes for eyes – now see what good turns eyes for eyes have done.

Falling 04:48
don‘t you feel the time all enduring night across my face your silhouette suspended here for so long don‘t you know you‘re sleepless now am I really standing alone maybe I‘m falling / falling maybe I‘m falling / falling so long / so long / so long / suspended here for so long hint of morning glow shrouded in the cold feel the fire interplay suspended here for so long the light and dark entwined turn my head with the tide the never ending pirouette suspended here for so long don‘t you know you‘re sleepless now am I really standing alone maybe I‘m falling / falling maybe I‘m falling / falling falling / falling / falling / falling

Soon 03:15
summer has branded tanned and united a dream a desire so deep inside I was blind and I needed I needed your breath would you‘ve let me guide you through – through the way that I feel and all you say is soon but I don‘t know anything‘bout you yet you own what no-one knew the colours of the rainbow but all you see is red and your fear is a smile and your smile is so cold I‘m waitin‘ for you to leave me to throw up and spit out your kisses your smiles, it‘s just the way that I feel and all you say is soon but I don‘t know anything‘bout you yet you own what no-one knew

Down 03:50
I had no time for sorrow I was waiting in some bar fleeing is the easy way I was crying in some car I was never down / so far I was never down / now I‘m not living I was never down / it‘s easier to be never down / but I‘ve forgiven I enjoyed sunsets and all that worthless stuff I can‘t stand my dreariness now I think it‘s enough I was never down / so far I was never down / see I am living I was never down / it‘s easier to be never down / now I‘ve forgiven now I‘m running / I‘m feeling I‘m a bit scared / I‘ll loose my soul forever and I‘m fighting / not healing cause I still dare / to think will be together

Dance 04:13
love‘s an ocean / colder than the stars spiralling up in milky ways my devotion hurts me like a scar never healed in endless pain dance / dance love‘s a giant exhausted to the core red and bigger than the sun an implosion fight the Trojan war you don‘t mean that much too me we‘ll be dancing, riding on that wave, particles explode around we‘ll be dancing, in the lightning, we‘ll be dancing, oooohh we‘re an ocean / colder than the stars spiralling up in milky ways my devotion / hurts me like a scar never healed in endless pain we‘ll be dancing, riding on that wave particles explode around we‘ll be dancing / in the lightning / we‘ll be dancing / oooohh dance / dance / dance / oooohh we‘ll be dancing / in the lightning / oho we‘re advancing / we‘re enlightning / oho love‘s a giant / love‘s an ocean / oho we‘ll be dancing / in the lightning / we‘ll be dancing / oooohh dance / dance / dance / oooohh

Apparition 01:39
he shall never vanquish‘d be until great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill we shall against him we shall against him that will never be who can impress the forest, bid the tree unfix his earth-bound unfix his earth-bound root? sweet bodements! good! sweet bodements! good!

Daylight 05:36
come away, come away, death, and in sad cypres let me be laid; fly away, fly away, breath; I am slain by a fair cruel maid. stuck all with yew / no one so true ah – ah – ah – ah the daylight / your fair shade / an overcoat of shame in dead night / so darkly bright / O come away, I‘m slain ah – ah – ah – ah all days are darkened nights, to see till I see thee, and nights are all bright days, when dreams do show thee me. the daylight / your fair shade / an overcoat of shame in dead night / so darkly bright / O come away, I‘m slain
12.
out all all our yesterdays have lighted fools out, out brief candle! ‘morrow and tomorrow fretting on stage then is heard no more life is but a poor player life is but a tale full of sound and fury and exuberance told to us by an idiot who stands upon the stage and then then is heard no more a tale the way to dusty death from day to day signifying nothing ‘morrow and tomorrow strutting on stage ‘till the last syllable of time life is but a poor player life is but a tale full of sound and fury and exuberance told to us by an idiot who stands upon the stage and then then is heard no more
