about

100 % of all revenues go to animal projects!

I am an animal rights activist and I donate all revenues to animal projects. There are people who help and support animals all over the world. They build shelters, buy food and give medical care. I support those who care for abused animals in Romania, India and other places. So with buying my music you also support abused animals.

Your support is much appriciated and helps to decrease the suffering of animals all over the world.

Thank you very much!

Track Name: Anachronisma
Anachronisma

I know life is eternal
The spirit never dies
Sometimes life is infernal
Can you hear their silent cries

There’s a whisper in the ruins
Dark clouds cover the sky
Someone ‘s playin’ a violin
In the darkness I hear you sigh

Refrain:

Come to me
Let me see
Let me ease your mind
You must believe
Then you can conceive
Or you’re lost in time

Now forget all your sorrows
Just lay down and be still
There the sun comes on the morrow
And it shines as it always will

Refrain:

You can be whatever you just want to be
If only you believe you can reach the stars
You can move any mountain, there’s no need to flee
You must go your own way, no matter how far

You can be whatever you just want to be
You can be whatever you just want to be

Refrain:
Track Name: I Am Not
I Am Not

I’m not your drudge
I’m not your anxoius prey
I’m not your property
I’m not here to please you anyway

I’m not evil
I’m not crude or vicious
I’m not the devil you curse
And I’m not superstitious

Refrain:

I am not (I’m not the reason why)
I am not (I’m not the reason why)
I am not (I’m not the reason why)
I am not (No! Not at all)

I’m not your fall guy
I’m not your bloody fool
I’m not your scapegoat
And I am not your mere tool
I’m not a menace
I’m not the one you slam
I’m not a victim
I am not your sacrificial lamb

Refrain:

I’m not afraid to say what’s on my mind
I’m not the one who’s sick and tired of you

I’m not guilty
Sure I’m not innocent
I’m not weak
And I am not irrelevant
I’m not a criminal
I’m not a terrorist
I’m not the enemy
And I am not the anti christ
Track Name: Cold Silence
Cold Silence

I adjourn to my living room
This little house is the world to me
I Have some rare plants and they bloom
Enjoy to see them while I have my tea

I feel so lost and hopeless when you’re around
I feel much better when you leave … and there’s no sound

Refrain:
In this cold silence I live alone
In this cold silence peaceful is my home
In this cold silence I feel so safe
In this cold silence I can be so brave

It’s late at night, I still lie awake
So many thoughts running thru my head
This heart is empty but I feel the ache
Sometimes I really wish that I was dead

I feel so small and helpless when you’re around
I feel much better when you leave… without a sound

Refrain:
In this cold silence I cry alone
In this cold silence lonely is my home
In this cold silence I feel so safe
In this cold silence I can be so brave

In my dreams everything’s so new
People think that I go insane
What they say really is not true
All is lost, all is so in vain
And I still feel the pain

Refrain:
Track Name: Bitter Sweet
Bitter Sweet

Walking thru the wilderness
along the river blue
Between the trees, in the grass so green
there I found you
Your hair was black, your skin so white
your open eyes so cold
Gave your beauty and your holiness
for jewellry of gold

A purple ribbon wrapped around your thoat
A piece of paper with words that someone wrote
„You’re the one I love, you mean so much to me“
Where’s the dignity?
Dead eyes stare at me

What happend to her lovliness?
Where is serenity?
Skin silky-smooth, lips cherry red
So beautiful to see
In these arms she felt so warm
Her love was pure and sweet
She was the princess of my dreams
Now she’s left as rotten meat

A purple ribbon wrapped around her thoat
A piece of paper with words that I wrote
„You’re the one I love, you mean so much to me“
Where’s the dignity
that there used to be?

Bitter sweet
Track Name: Fear
Fear

You live your life in sorrow, hiding from the day
You love the sound of silence, you stare and turn away
You think you are the one who’s suffering in pain
This feeling deep inside is driving you insane
Your heart is running faster
Your eyes are open wide
Awaiting your disaster
But they lied

Fear – Your fear – It’s just fear – Your Fear

We’re fighting all the world, against the time
We’re rushing through the days, hanging on the line
We’re killing to survive, but what do we know?
Lost people everywhere watching the show
Our hearts are running faster
Our eyes are open wide
Awaiting new disaster
But the TV lied

Fear – Our fear – It’s just fear – Our fear

Close your eyes, don’t be afraid

Fear – My fear – It’s just fear – My fear
Fear – Your fear – It’s just fear – Your Fear
Fear – Our fear – It’s just fear – Our fear

It’s my fear
Track Name: The Human Factor
The Human Factor

You caught my eye, with your beauty and grace
You are the perfect picture of the inhuman race
But you feel and cry just like me
You even bleed and die just like me

The human factor
The human factor

I watch you on the catwalk, a goddess in white
I see you on the screen, in the magazine
But you sleep and breathe just like me
Even lie and deceive just like me

The human factor
The human factor
Track Name: Still Silent
Still Silent

The sound of silence swaying in the air
But still the screams echo in my ear
A silent whisper haunts me everywhere
Even in my dreams it feeds my fear

We bleed in anger, as we sing our lullaby
We don’t know the truth, we cannot see
We watch and wonder, while the rivers are running dry
A thousand shadows hanging over me

We all see what we wanna see
We ignore what is true but cannot be
What’s illusion? What’s reality?
It all seems so strange to me
We’re still silent

In this lonely world there’s a growing coldness and decay
The scars will always linger, the wounds they cannot heal
A last decision, when there’s nothing left to say
Free your mind, come and tell me what you feel

We all see what we wanna see
We ignore what is true but must not be
What’s illusion? What’s reality?
It all seems so strange to me
We’re still silent

We all see what we wanna see
We ignore what is true but shall not be
What’s illusion? What’s reality?
It all seems so strange to me
We’re still silent
Track Name: Life In The Shadows
Life In The Shadows

My life is a misery
It’s a fuckin’ distaster
Can someone get me outa here?

Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
There is no life

My life is a tragedy
It’s an endless theatre of pain
Would you kill me if I say please?

Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
There is no love

There’s a child in the mirror staring at me
There’s a shadow that is me
Lost in the cold darkness
Help me!

My life is a drama
I really wanna die
Will it ever end?

Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
Life in the shadows
There is no life
Track Name: The Inner Path
The Inner Path

Life ‘s a path full of pain and despair
If you see it that way
Change your mind, see the truth, love is there
You ‘ll receive when you pray

Refrain:

From the heart you’ll be forgiven
In the world you built and live in
From the heart you shall be driven
Feel the fire burnin’ within

Life is short and the end always near
Take your chance while you can
Find yourself and it all becomes clear
Start where it all began

Refrain:
Track Name: Eternal Winter
Eternal Winter

In this world full of anger
I’m searching for a place where I can stay
Shadows locked up in a chamber
Hiding from a world with skies of grey
In this world full of violence
Immorality and decay
There’s a place of peace and silence
If I open up my heart, I’ll find the way

Refrain:

Eternal winter
Lost in the maze
Eternal winter
These are solitary days

There’s face in the fractured mirror
There’s a shadow in the twilight of my mind
There’s a whisper and it’s getting clearer
There’s a ghost who is somewhere lost in time
I am lonely, I am helpless, I am bound
To the ruins of a long forgotten dream
A king without a kingdom who has lost his crown
Come and tell me how can I escape from this scheme

Refrain:

Can I return to the one that I loved so dearly and true?
My memories fade, is it too late to find you?

Refrain:
