I can be so strong
Like a lion on a mission
I can do no wrong
I can fight day and night
That's my decision!

Because the world is...

(So bad) Like diet soda
(So bad) I'm counting 37 wars
(So bad) User friendly
(So bad) We lost the singer of the Doors
(So bad) The U.F.O. conspiracy
(So bad) Starvation and depressy
(So bad) Hiroshima Tomsk Tschernobyl
(So bad) It's never gonna heal

I can be so good
Like a goddess
Plus, I'm modest
I...I have no fear
I will go all the way
I can show you how to pray

Because the world is...

(So bad) Deadly chemotherapy
(So bad) The lies about HIV
(So bad) We've lost ou rlast chance
(So bad) And we're all dancing Shiva's dance
(So bad) Genetic obsession
(So bad) Misused atomic energy
(So bad) Surprise, surprise, the culture industry
(So bad) Helmut Kohl!

You can do no wrong
If you fight on my side
If you make that decision

Because the world is...

(So bad) I.R.A. and R.A.F.
(So bad) Are we really blind and deaf
(So bad) The Yogoslavian rape
(So bad) And no-one can escape
(So bad) The Nazi lunacy
(So bad) Artificial extasy
(So bad) I hate my T.V.

So bad..bad...bad...

When the Lord was in the flesh
Showing us the truth
He sacrificed himself
To purify the roots

He said "Blessed be the one
Who knows my father's name
When the time has come"

I can put my trust in Jesus,
But can he put his trust in me
Do I do my best in service,
Even though no-one can see
I can say that he's my saviour,
And from sin he set me free
I can put my trust in Jesus,
But can he put his trust in me

Revolution ballroom
Bringing light into the dark
Revolution dancehall
Nothing more to day
Revolution ballroom
Like a rainbow shining in the sky
Revolution dancehall
Looking for a better day

The same story happened
On Kumaoni Hill
When Babaji appeared
Shaking our wills
He said "Be fearless and courageous,
cross ice and fire at the funeral pyre"

I can put my trust in Babaji,
But can he put his trust in me
Do I help those who would need me,
Do I really set them free
I can say that he's my guru,
And from death he set me free
I can put my trust in Babaji,
But can he put his trust in me

Revolution ballroom
Bringing light into the dark
Revolution dancehall
Nothing more to day
Revolution ballroom
Like a rainbow shining in the sky
Revolution dancehall
Looking for a better day

We're all the same
Like stars in the night
Let's stop the war
Let's drop the fight
Swim in oceans of love
Instead of blood and tears
'Cause the times are near

Glory Glory Halleluja, Om Namah Shivaya
Glory Glory Halleluja, Om Namah Shivaya
Glory Glory Halleluja, Om Namah Shivaya

Revolution ballroom
Bringing light into the dark
Revolution dancehall
Nothing more to day
Revolution ballroom
Like a rainbow shining in the sky
Revolution dancehall
Looking for a better day

Om Namah Shivaya...

You can't hurry my God
No, no, no
You just gotta wait
You've gotta trust God and give him time
No matter how long it will take
But he's a God we just can't hurry
But he'll be there, don't you worry
I say he may not come when you want him,
But he's "right on time!"

You can't hurry my God
No, no, no
You just gotta wait
You've gotta trust God and give him time
No matter how long it will take
But he's a God we just can't hurry
But he'll be there, don't you worry
I say he may not come when you want him,
But he's "right on time!"

Well, brother Joe was sick so long
Until the flesh fell from his bones
While with his wife, cattle and children
Well everything he had was gone

Joe said "You put these afflictions upon me Lord,
Now come and see about me"
I said he may not come when you want him,
Bue he's "right on time!"

Well some say he's coming in the morning
And he's gonna make the journey by train
Or some say he'd be riding in a chariot
Shakin' like an angel wing

Well I don't know how soon God's coming!
But don't let him catch you with your wicked game, now
He may not come with we want him
But he's "Right on time!"

You can't hurry my God
No, no, no
You just gotta wait
You've gotta trust God and give him time
No matter how long it will take
But he's a God we just can't hurry
But he'll be there, don't you worry
I say he may not come when you want him,
But he's "right on time!"

Yes!!!

Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas
Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas
Long John Silver is dumping his chemical waste
The sea is turning gray with a slick once more
All the animals are lying dead on the shore

Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas
Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas

One day we will glow,
And one day we will flow
In the meantime baby
What you got to do is
Let yourself go

One day we may fly,
And the next day we may die
In the meantime baby
What you got to do is
Give it a try

One day we are fine,
The next day we may decline
In the meantime baby
What you got to do is
Learn to shine

Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas (we are the Rainbow Warriors)
Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas (we are the Rainbow Warriors)
Long John Silver is dumping his chemical waste
The sea is turning gray with a slick once more
All the animals are lying dead on the shore

One day you feel great and
The next day you lose your mate
In the meantime baby
What you got to do is
Have some faith!

One day you feel so free and
The next day you drive into a tree!
In the meantime baby
What you got to do is
Learn to see

One day they give you a pill and
The next day you feel really ill!
In themeantime baby
What you got to do is
Use your own will!

Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas (we are the Rainbow Warriors)
Pollution Pirates are sailing the 7 seas (we are the Rainbow Warriors)
Long John Silver is dumping his chemical waste
The sea is turning gray with a slick once more
All the animals are lying dead on the shore

How many times must these words be said
How many times until it gets inside of your head
Yello, black, brown or white
Man, woman or child
Times keep on changing
But peace still has no name
Times keep on changing
But peace still has no name...

So young and beautiful
So strong and lovable
So great and wonderful
You are the King of Hearts
So sweet and lotus-like
Beyond the highest high
Like lover and father and mother
Together, forever and ever, amen

I say you face to face
You've got amazing grace
Your love is bigger than
Anything I've ever seen

I really want you to know
That I really really love you so
How can I let you know
It's you I need to worship

Please teach me how
To reach you now
And forever I need your divine instruction to succeed
Your presentce is beyond the state of bliss
How could I ever describe
Your holy holy vibe

So young and beautiful
So strong and lovable
So great and wonderful
You are the King of Hearts
So sweet and lostus-like
Beyond the hightest high
Like lover and father and mother
Together, forever and ever, amen

I will see you in my dream again
That makes me oh so strong
It's you for you I sing this song
I really really wanna let you know
That I really really really need you
More and more and more and more than ever before
When we were kissing in my dream
You said our love is no sin
Our love is no sin

Your presence is beyond the state of bliss
How could I even describe your holy holy vibe

So young and beautiful
So strong and lovable
So great and wonderful
You are the King of Hearts
So sweet and lostus-like
Beyond the hightest high
Like lover and father and mother
Together, forever and ever, amen

And let's speak of love
Where does love stay
Here and there we hope
That someone might remember
Love of the mind
Love of words
Let's live only for
Love that is in the heart

Bizarre love
Clandestine love
Let's live only for
Love of the divine
And join our hands
In one prayer
In this great "maya"
Om namah shivaya

. . .


Pillow talk, pillow talk
Another night I hear myself just
Talk, talk, talk
Wonder how it would be
To have someone to pillow talk to me
I wonder how
I wonder who

Pillow talk, pillow talk
Another night I'm being alone with
Talk, talk, talk
When it's all said and done
Two halves together they can be better than one
That's what they say
They always say

All I do is talk to my pillow,
Talk to my pillow,
Talk to my pillow
All I do is talk to my pillow,
Talk about the boy I'm going to marry
Someday
Somehow
Somewhere
Sometime

Pillow talk, pillow talk
Another night I get my pillow to
Talk, talk, talk
My pillow and I, we both agree
There must be a boy
There must be a pillow
There must be a pillow-talking boy for me
I hope I'm right
I hope I'm right
I better be right
I better be right
Oh, there must be a pillow-talking boy for me

There must be a boy
There must be a boy
There must be a boy

All I do is talk to my pillow,
Talk to my pillow,
Talk to my pillow
All I do is talk to my pillow,
Talk about the boy I'm going to marry
Someday
Somehow
Somewhere
Sometime

Wir tanzen und verfuehren
Wir singen und beruehren
Wir herrschen und betruegen
Wir kriechen und wir luegen

We're loving and romancing
We're singing and we're dancing
We beat it when we need it
We're lying and keep smiling

Wir leben bis wir schweben
Wir hoffen und wir beten
Wir trinken und wir essen
Wir lachen und vergessen

Was die Leute reden ist wie der Wind
Es rauscht and mir vorbei
Wir brauchen Worte, die Verbindung schaffen
Von vorurteilen frei

Berlin!!
Berlin!!

Ich liebe die Stimmung
L'atmosphere c'est tres bizarre
Right over here
Chez toi at the "Tempodrom"
At the "Tunnel" and the "Q"
Over here
Avec un rendez-vous
Toujour retour c'est la vie
Ma oui oui oui oui oui oui oui
C'est la vie!

We all gotta choose
If we gonna win or if we gonna lose
We all gotta choose
If we gonna win or if we gonna lose

Berlin!!
Berlin!!

Osten, Westen werden hell,
Ja die grosse Stadt ist schnell!
Send me a postcard if you please
C'est royale, c'est manifique
Osten, Westen werden hell,
Ja die grosse Stadt is schnell!
Send me a postcard if you please
C'est royale, c'est manifique

Berlin!!
Berlin!!

We all gotta choose
If we gonna win or if we gonna lose
We all gotta choose
If we gonna win or if we gonna lose...

I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to stand for right
And always shun the wrong
If I'm in the crowd
Or if I'm alone
On the street or in my home
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song

Every day, everywhere
On that busy thoroughfare
Folk may watch me, some may spot me
Say I'm foolish, but I don't care
I can't sing one thing
And then live another
Be a saint by day
And a devil undercover
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song

I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to stand for right
And always shun the wrong
If I'm in the crowd
Or if I'm alone
On the street or in my home
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song, yes!

Every day, every night
I must always walk in the light
Some mistake me, underrate me
Because I want to do what's right
I can't go to church
And shout all day Sunday
Go out and get drunk
And raise's all day monday (?)
I've got to live the life
I sing about in my song

I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song
I'm going to live the life
I sing about in my song

Gimmie-gimmie-gimmie...
Give me the chance to express
My big love is a big success
I always wanted to ask you this:
Do you really know what love is?
Love is to help one another
To give and to share like a good mother
Now if you are Italian, English or German
Doesn't make a difference even if your name's Herman
You will find your counterpart
And you know it in your heart
Your love is all that matters
Only love can sex us
Love me, love me, love again and again

Heaven's on the big bed in my caravan
My gypsy love is free, hi hi!!!
Heaven's on the big bed in my caravan
My gypsy love is where you'll find me!!!

On wild wild horses of cosmic evolution
And across deserts of death
I've travelled from time to time
To find at last your velvet soft cushion of revelation
And with the softest touch of tenderness
I'm wearing your costume of graceful bliss
My wings of rainbows strive to paradise
Of exstatic peace and holy love

There's more than enough at the fountain of joy
Where tears of love I cry
I'm getting bolder and bolder
I'm already leaning on your shoulder
Hey, it's no crap
But I wanna sit on your lap

Heaven's on the big bed in my caravan
My gypsy love is free, hi hiiii!
Heaven's on the big bed in my caravan
My gypsy love is where you'll find me!!!

My golden astral body is shining with a spark of immortality
Most definitely I hopped from one existence to another
And I will keep on jumpin' gaily
From one pleasure blade to another
Until I rest on the save ground of your divine lingam
Om Namah Shivaya!

Heaven's on the big bed in my caravan
My gypsy love is free, hi hiiii!
Heaven's on the big bed in my caravan
My gypsy love is where you'll find me!!!

Speak loudly of the holy Lord of Haidakhan.
Tell of God, the personification of Truth, Consciousness and Bliss.
Proclaim holy Lord Shiva with the Goddess Mother,
The Sustainer, Inspirer, and World Master.

Hail, hail to Lord Haidakhan,
Who incarnated for the liberation of the world.

Thou alone art my true divine Master,
Shiva invisible, unperceivable, highest God.

Your heart is very full of mercy,
One who surrenders to you is immediately liberated.

What pain in the world cannot be removed,
Instantly by your grace, O king of sages?

You always speak words which remove our fear.
Baba fulfills all desires.

O Lord, you are the source of auspiciousness, the remover of evil.
I sacrifice everything at your lotus feet.

Great Sage, you speak very sweetly, extremely benevolently;
Your sentences are the essence of knowledge.

The true eternal religion, full of generosity,
Tells of knowledge combined with holy work.

Each one's own duty is good for him,
Jealousy and hatred are not.

Truth, simplicity and love, brother,
This duty alone brings man happiness.

Meditate on the Lord's name, brother, to purify the heart.
Find the Lord sitting in your heart.

Holy Shiva is residing in your heart.
Find him there, leave ignorance and disappointment behind.

The great saint, an ocean of all qualities,
Whose beginning and end nobody knows.

Haidakhan is a wonderful place
Very holy giving joy and solace.

The roar of the Gautama Ganga is heard day and night;
Siddhas, gods and demons worship there every day.

Holy mount Kailash, so beautiful,
Looking at it, the mind yearns for it.

Under that mountain is a beautiful cave;
That great cave is described in the Vedas.

The wild animals wandering in the dense forest,
They forget all enmity among themselves.

Since the Lord started living here,
The "Garden of the Heaven's" beauty faded in comparison.

All glory to this holy place is ours,
Which Shiva enjoys as his living place.

Thy merciful look gives love of Thy holy feet.
By no other method can one get a pure mind.

Now Lord, show me grace in this way,
Let me renounce all and do meditation day and night.

Praise to Amba, mother of the universe.
All forms are one, Thou, mother goddess Amba.
