LYRICS

After wishes about lyrics I decided to add this section with lyrics of Fake

songs.

Many people, including myself, have been wondering about why only one

side of "New art" had lyrics. I asked Erik of Fake and this is his

explanation:

-Half of the record was disco-oriented without any real connection to the

theme New art. The other half with "Moonlight" etc. fits together

lyricswise. And now the lyrics:

 

New art

Donīt face the future with your memories apart

look back in history, for the new art

Its your life who gave it to you...? (to be continued)

 

As far as I know this text never was continued

 

Empty garden

I saw the face of a stranger

no name

In my Empty garden

heīs one of them without number

thereīs no place for him

in this story

aha but wait behind him, a flower of the new age

Do you want me to dance?

Yes do it with all your magic

The dance

With you in my Empty garden

With you in my Empty garden

Someone left the door open

wow! Is this a trap or something?

Be careful

Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you

 

Memories of Pan

I brought you presents of China

I brought you my memories from Pan

 

Behind those sensitive eyes

you hide a face of a boy crying

 

Why? donīt you try to believe

Why? donīt you try to believe

 

You gave me pleasure of canvas

I brought you my memories from Pan

 

You painted me like a friend

behind your moves an old man crying

 

Why? donīt you try to believe

Why? donīt you try to believe

in my story

itīs true

 

Alone with the moonlight

Alone with the moonlight in my room

with colours Iīve made to get me through

the walls are withoput life

but walls donīt cry

-They donīt cry do they?

-Never

There are things in my life

I never understand I can show you

my empty mirror

and if you donīt believe me

The paintings Iīve made canīt get me through

Itīs just another step in wrong direction

faces I donīt know tells mewhat to do where to go

but Iīm so alone

-Get out

-Oh if you wasnīt so far away

There are things in my life

I never understand I can show you

my empty mirror

and if you donīt believe me

This is a night in a young boys dream

and when a young boy dreams heīs nowhere

 

Rain over the Nile

There was no life

there was emptiness and regrets

still water covers you

in safety without hope

 

Scenes which I cried for

donīt bother me itīs the mother in me

Winter spring summertime again

inside my heart

 

Rain over the Nile

will fall on you

tears in blue for my vail

Rain over the Nile

will call for me too

my promise to you

 

-Hate me but softly

I am wounded and Iīm weak

adrift in the past in gail with my heart

 

-For how long am I strong enough

to avoid the water so enticing

the water and you

 

Rain Over the Nile

will fall on you

tears in blue for my vail

Rain over the Nile

will call for me too

my promise to you

itīs a promise

 

Brick

 

Where will I find you on the other side

of the tightrope writing about your fear,

as a visit with the exiled writers.

You survived all the burning fields

of dissidents in the East and arrived as the beauty,

into the gap with me.

 

Refrain:

Another brick is falling from the isle of you,

another brick is falling down, from the isle of you.

 

Stay under the lama in our grand parade,

itīs not like Mardi Gras more like a passion,

not a revolution in your sign.

In the ashes of a knightthe part was played,

a drama gripped in fright behind the curtain.

-About those who stayed too long.

 

Refrain

 

Can you imagine, a flower,

with petals of steel and you as itīs pistil, surrounded.

Kannst du dir vorstellen

 

Refrain
