ALL INSIDE MY HEAD (copyright by LIONCEAU)

 

It took me quite a long time to find back to myself.

I felt I was accused of some unspoken crime.

I had already doubted if I would survive.

Demons were coming after me.

Seaquakes drowned the best in me.

 

And now I find how it unwinds that everything’s alright.

And now I find and I don’t mind

it’s all inside my head – only in my head.

 

I couldn’t trust my senses – they played tricks on me.

I was kept under surveillance – it didn’t let me sleep.

Cause too big is the secret that I have to keep.

Demons were coming after me.

Seaquakes drowned the best in me.

 

And now I find how it unwinds that everything’s alright.

And now I find and I don’t mind

it’s all inside my head – only in my head.

 

Demons were coming after me.

Seaquakes drowned the best in me.

 

And now I find how it unwinds

that everything’s alright.

And now I find and I don’t mind

it’s all inside my head – only in my head.

 

 

Mein Kopf (copyright by LIONCEAU)

 

Es brauchte eine Weile bis ich mich wiederfand.

Zuvor stand ich beizeiten mit dem Rücken an der Wand.

Ich hatte meine Zweifel, war so dicht am Rand.

 

Ein Dämon verfolgte mich im Traum.

Brandung erstickte mich mit Schaum.

 

Dann wurd es Tag und ich sah klar,

dass alles gut so war.

Nun ist es Tag und was sich begab

War nur in meinem Kopf, nur in meinem Kopf.

 

Ich misstraute meinen Sinnen, die täuschten manches Mal.

Ich spürte fremde Augen sobald ich alleine war.

Ein gefährliches Geheimnis, das sich in mir barg.

 

Ein Dämon verfolgte mich im Traum.

Brandung erstickte mich mit Schaum.

PRINCESS (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

Deep in the gutter at the outermost side –

there a lives creature hard to indentify

with black mascara and dyed blonde hair.

For some repulsive – for others fair.

Beauty is but skin-deep.

But as your maleness would be put on spot

you’d never dare to call him hot.

Let us be, let us be fabulous.

 

You call yourself the unlovable princess.

You are beautiful and you are me.

You call yourself the unlovable princess.

A part of our hearts, a part of our minds we share.

 

Released by flash-light and voodoo-drums

the creature dances and shakes his bum.

With glitter make up – and skinny pants –

makes all spectators get sticky hands.

Beauty is but skin-deep.

Your reputation is in the top.

So all you think of is to beat our being up.

Let us be, let us be fabulous.

 

You call yourself the unlovable princess.

You are beautiful and you are me.

You call yourself the unlovable princess.

A part of our hearts, a part of our minds we share.

 

I know the day will come that you will be a Queen.

I know a King will come to make you a Queen.

FABULOUS TIME (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

I’m filling my life with wonderful people

who make Paris become part of my heart and heal my soul

so I have found a way to compensate

no matter where it takes me to.

I believe I don’t get old but I don’t want to die young as well.

 

All that we long for, all that we want

is to live on like this forever.

All I can tell, look, we are in our prime

cause we’re having a fabulous time.

 

I protect my heart – distinguish friend from foe

first make Paris become part of my heart and heal my soul.

I have learned my lessons well enough

to estimate what’s good for me.

I like spending time on my own but I don’t want to cry all alone.

 

All that we long for, all that we want

is to live on like this forever.

All I can tell, look, we are in our prime

cause we’re having a fabulous time.

…all that I know this is our show

cause we’re having a fabulous time.

AVATAR (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

It began one early morning when I had nothing to do.

I played on my computer and I invented you.

My heart was beating fast when I pressed the enter-key.

You are my King, my Queen – my move has set me free.

 

I fell in love with my avatar – you’re everything I’ll never be.

You show me all the things I want to see –

I simply press the enter-key.

There is nothing that I cannot get – we’re masters of the internet.

I fell in love with my avatar – my connection to the world.

 

Now I can’t say that I hate people but they think that I’m a fool.

I know that I’m not clever: didn’t have good marks at school.

My computer well replaces, bits and bytes are always kind.

Hello to my new friends, I left loneliness behind.

 

I fell in love with my avatar – you’re everything I’ll never be.

You show me all the things I want to see –

I simply press the enter-key.

There is nothing that I cannot get – we’re masters of the internet.

I fell in love with my avatar – my connection to the world.

 

I know that I’m not clever but my avatar is smart.

It’s neither male or female – with a big and shiny heart.

NOBLE EARTH (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

We went hand in hand through hell to fight our inner demons

drove fast crashed hard for something to believe in

We talked away the night

to make the sun shine on a better day.

 

We were drifted far offshore where the evil tried to catch us –

slash us snatch us – they didn’t outmatch us.

Though we went much too far

we could always make our way back home.

 

You are my noble earth in the core of my universe.

You crashed like a nova from the sky –

a seldom species beautiful and shy.

You are my noble earth in the core of my universe.

 

Nothing will ever be the same –  but we are survivors

hands up – act tough – no matter we’re outsiders.

Although we’re all alone we’re smart enough to flee the danger zone.

 

We found ourselves on the open road  – we had lost direction.

Off track stepped back in need of interaction.

we burned away the dark to make the sun shine on a brand new start.

 

You are my noble earth in the core of my universe.

You crashed like a nova from the sky –

a seldom species independent style.

You are my noble earth in the core of my universe.

BONA FIDE (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

It’s none of your business who I call on the phone.

I don’t need a witness when I’m on my own.

Stop calling me thoughtless as I oppose drones.

Just keep your needless security zones.

 

It’s none of your business who I love and desire.

And it is obscene to put oil to the fire.

It’s not peculiar – only life makes its way.

And I won´t be the one to pay.

 

I’m not so credulous to think that good always prevails.

But I’m aware that between good and evil

there are many shades of grey.

 

There are so many things that can’t be easily explained

and when you think about injustice round you don’t tell me you’re not ashamed.

 

It is some of our business how we all get along

– all’s well that ends well – or if it turns wrong.

When I watch today’s new I’m getting depressed.

But believe me I am far from lost.

 

There are so many things that can’t be easily explained

and when you think about injustice round you don’t tell me you’re not ashamed.

 

I’m not so credulous to think that good always prevails.

But I’m aware that between good and evil

there are many shades of grey.

 

AFTER THE STORM (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

The worst of all is just behind us –

we stand paralyzed with fear.

The world we knew has just been broken –

the damage is severe.

And we realize that heaven’s empty –

no one guides us on our way.

With blinded eyes and covered ears –

we let ourselves astray.

 

After the storm the world is forlorn.

Wasteland – disaster zone.

 

The worst of all is yet to come –

as we poison seven seas.

The world we knew will go to pieces –

irreversibly.

And we keep on fighting symptoms –

no one dares to fight the cause.

With wondering eyes and empty hearts –

stupid is as stupid does.


After the storm the world is forlorn.

Wasteland – disaster zone.

 

Close your eyes and relax –

we know you best –

we know your kicks.

We know our moves –

we know your dreams –

you make us rich –

we’ll make you free.


The best – they say – is yet to come –

so all we do is come undone.

With milky eyes and watered mouths –

We’re all out to have some fun.

 

After the storm the world is reborn.

Black box – Tabula rasa

COCOONED (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

Love is so shy – like wild animal.

Love is so fast it overtakes a canon-ball.

Love was so bright when we first caught sight.

Love would miss after the break-away-kiss.

 

Show me where it hides – let’s find out where it lies.

Wrapped in darkness, coated black

cocooned.

 

Love is so alive – like a wild waterfall.

Love is so enough it overcomes thirst and sleep.

Love proved so right in our first night.

Love would I pray after you went away.

 

Show me where it hides – let’s find out where it lies.

Wrapped in darkness, coated black

cocooned.

 

You make me breathe deeply in contemplations.

You make believe love is all I need.

 

I heard that it was spied:

But it’s shy so it defied.

Shining bright and blossomed white

marooned.

ENDANGER ME (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

The room is dark there’s no need of light

the display shines seductively bright.

The night is young, the curtain rises:

the pictures pretty and the vibes enticing.

It is awesome and amusing:

No game without the chance of losing.

 

Endanger me – no regrets no sympathy.

Make love fall apart – and give us a start.

Safe your breath and safe my heart.

 

Digital vultures circling above

with lots of passion but no sign of love.

The hunting starts the buffet’s open –

so many options to choose from.

Like a bazaar, a bizarre auction:

One man’s meat is another man’s poison.

 

Endanger me – no regrets no sympathy.

Make love fall apart – and give us a start.

Safe your breath and safe my heart.

STILL ALIVE (copyright by LIONCEAU)
 

Open a bottle of Champagne –

don’t be afraid – we’re still alive.

The world is toxic and flowers have all gone.
But we can move on and on and on and on.

 

Keep that smile on your face – we need not go far.
An atomic war has blown our world apart.
It’s the end of the race – we have to take heart
let’s face the truth that we have to depart.

 

Still alive.

 

Open a bottle of Champagne –

stay where you are. Don’t turn around.
Together we stand but divided we will fall.

Yes, we have changed. We all,  we all, we all.

 

Keep that smile on your face – we need not go far.
An atomic war has blown our world apart.
It’s the end of the race – we have to take heart
let’s face the truth that we have to depart.

 

Still alive.

 

I don’t know why we have survived,

I don’t know where the others went.
I don’t know what we’ve got to do.

 

Keep that smile on your face – we need not go far.
An atomic war has blown our world apart.
It’s the end of the race – we have to take heart

Let’s face the truth that we have to depart.

 

Still alive.

AIMH beschreibt Momente im Leben, in denen sich Sorgen auftürmen,  man das Schlimmste annimmt und am Ende feststellt, dass der Worst-Case sich nur im eigenen Kopf abspielt und man wieder in der Realität ankommt: Alles ist in Ordnung.

Princess ist eine Person, die zwischen den Geschlechtern lebt, zwar als Junge geboren wurde, sich aber sehr weiblich gibt und dafür verprügelt wird, obwohl die Typen, die das tun ihn/sie irgendwie scharf finden. Aber da sie sich das natürlich nicht eingestehen wollen/können wird  "Princess" verprügelt.

Fabulous Time ist der Moment, an dem alles so ist, wie es sein soll. DER Moment, der für immer bleiben soll.

Hier bastelt sich ein Außenseiter einen Avatar, der ihn im Internet zu einem Helden macht und Dinge erleben lässt, die er im realen Leben nie würde bewerkstelligen können.

In Noble Earth begegnen wir dem Bösen und werden gerettet. Das Leben als 'Outsider' hat gestärkt und bewirkt, dass wir zusammen der Gefahrenzone stets entkommen konnten.

 

Bona Fide protestiert gegen staatliche Überwachung, kämpft für die Ehe für alle und richtet sich gegen Schwarz-Weiß-Denken gegenüber Fremden. Das Gute gewinnt nicht immer - aber es gibt viele Schattierungen zwischen Schwarz und Weiß.

Der Neoliberalismus und seine Gier machen unsere Welt kaputt, Konzerne wissen besser, was uns 'kickt', als wir selber: Du machst uns reich, wir machen dich frei!  Dabei liegt das Schlimmste nicht bereits hinter sondern noch vor uns.

Ob die Katastrophe in den Untergang führt oder die Chance auf einen Neuanfang bedeutet, liegt im Auge des Betrachters.

'Love' ist ein scheues Tier und wird wie bei einer Expedition gesucht und gefunden. Es ist zuerst verpuppt und häutet sich dann, erstrahlt weiß und rein.

Hier geht es um pikante Begegnungen im und aus dem Internet - ohne Bedauern und ohne Reue.
