Track Name: What's your big secret
I saw queen Elizabeth
Begging for a little piece of bread
A little baby was hanging on her neck
Well won't you take a bow
He's the heir to the throne

Next to her was old Lazarus
He was born to do what he does
Next to him no one had a chance
He was far the best poor Elizabeth

What's your big secret

Then I saw a group of brave young men
Juggling with fire
I could swear they ran from hell
Long time ago they were in Jerusalem
They found a holy grail
Oh what a show they made

In the quiet corner of the square
Scheherazade has never been so scared
She was hiding away from her man
No more stories left to postpone her death

What's your big secret

Resting in the park near the fountain
Where birds rally in the shadow of the mountain
Joan of Arc was throwing dreams away
Well that's the only thing that she ever had

Struggled into his own discoveries
Galileo went to confess his sins
The church was closed it was a holiday
Looks like everything goes against his will

What's your big secret

Far away from the center of the town
Nostradamus was looking up the sky
He said if only a had that much time
To live enough and see if I was right

Then a man you could see he was dead
came and asked him can you see how I'll end
Well he said that's beyond my reach
Well I'll give you my thirty pieces of silver

What's your big secret

In the darkest part of the night
Where lights are silent and people apart
Torn with tears Mary Magdalene
Picks up the pieces of her broken dream

Surrounded with piercing blue lights
That carved a line between wrong and right
Men of law released their kept back hate
And put the platted crown of thorns on his head

What's your big secret
Track Name: Hero
Last night in my dream
I dreamed that I had
A transplantation of my own thoughts
I couldn't recognize
The person I presented
There were thousands just like me
I don't wanna change
I'm satisfied the way I am
I need no conformation
Can't you leave me all alone
Well can't you see
I'm in no mood for your demands

I don't wanna be your hero
They always somehow end up dead
Never mind how wise they are
How prepared or how brave
They all share the same old curse
First you die then you’ll become a hero

I think therefor I am
Or something that sounded like that
Has lost its every meaning
The only place where
I could find my self was in my head
And now they've taken that
Now I'm just a statue
In this life museum
In a section of my era
Smiling constantly
And grateful every time
They clean the dust off of me

I don't wanna be your hero
They always somehow end up dead
Never mind how wise they are
How prepared or how brave
They all share the same old curse
First you die then you’ll become a hero

When I woke up from this nightmare
Frozen by the feeling
Spreading through my body
It took me more then half an hour
Just to tear myself
Away from the bed
But I couldn't tear
The feeling off of me
It stuck in me and made me weary
Like a parasite
That's wrapped around me
Well it looks like I'm still in my dream

I don't wanna be your hero
They always somehow end up dead
Never mind how wise they are
How prepared or how brave
They all share the same old curse
First you die then you’ll become a hero
Track Name: Freedom
I'm playing cards with Napoleon
Who didn't win since Moscow burnt
Hitler hints a peaceful bluff
Bartering France with his moustache
Stalin felt the game was good
To keep the Yankees on the hook
Churchill's drowning in his sweat
Wondering whether he should raise his bet
Then in anger throwing cards
Attila has given up
Givin' up the wildest dream
Henry married the sixth queen
Tito circulates around
In his most expensive cars
Fidel Castro on the side
Stuck in past on his island.

And I am only a dealer
risking my life for freedom

Julius in Latin told
Veni vidi vici jokes
Mussolini grows his hair
But it just grows inside his brain
Saddam won the first few games
And later lost everything he possessed
then Cleopatra came kissed him
And it felt so great
Filled with jealousy I saw
Alexanders tears have grown
Franco tries to cheat along
So he could bring the crown back home
Genghis Khan will not allow
For his remains to be found
David wasn’t feeling well
So he sent Goliath instead

And I am only a dealer
risking my life for freedom

Lenin tried to help his friend
But Khrushchevs ego wouldn't let
Spartans with 300 men
If only they had guns we have
Ceausescu thinks he's cool
But near the end he'll play a fool
Hirohito from Japan
Chosen to destroy his land
Idi Amin's in charge for meat
In Africa it's very cheap
Pol Pot feels a conspiracy
His army brings him misery
Mao Zedong found the way
to multiply the poor and ailed
But bread and circus's still the way
To win the crowd and rule insane

And I am only a dealer
risking my life for freedom
Track Name: Wind of honour
I've seen wind of honour
Changing our names
Wind of honour
Answering our prays
I've seen death
Embraced by a child
And anger that wouldn't
Let his father cry
I've seen love
Washed in the rain
Purified but still in vain
For who knows how many times
Your door has been closed
You won't see me
Knocking back on your door

I've seen a man
Abandoned by friends
Sharing a drink
With his bad intent
I've heard of a woman
Some say she's a witch
I'm sure she can help you
Forget that you're rich
I've seen the fountain
With frozen water
Just like my words
When I am sober

Up in the north
Where winters are colder
And stars are so few
Up in the north
Where winds are much bolder
And so are you
I've seen wind of honour
Changing the world
Sometimes for better
And sometimes for worse
And no matter
How far we may see
We’ll never know
What our wind of honour
One day may bring
Track Name: In flame
Some say he was the greatest mind
Or at least among top four
That ever lay his feet
On this land that we call home
I wouldn't disagree
But what would say the pope
Well I think the only thing
We have to do is burn his work

Somewhere in northern France
So many years ago
Who knows would France exist
If there wasn't for that girl
She had more belief in God
Then anyone I know
Despite that fact
The bishop said you must burn

In flame you wouldn't understand
Flame for you were never there
Flame so easy and so great
Flame you wouldn't
No you wouldn't understand

On the road next to where
John spent his childhood days
Few hundred years before
He met his best friend Ray
In a town famous
For its sins and immoral saints
Salvation came
And all the town was in its grace

In flame you wouldn't understand
Flame for you were never there
Flame so easy and so great
Flame you wouldn't
No you wouldn't understand

Somewhere between these lines
As I wrote this song
I started thinking
And this thinking got to strong
It's always been
Our human need to destroy
Well if that is not absurd
Than I think we all should burn

In flame you wouldn't understand
Flame for you were never there
Flame so easy and so great
Flame you wouldn't
No you wouldn't understand
Track Name: Pa ti ri ri ri
I went to see my Helen of Troy
Oh my God she is so beautiful
And as I came she said to me
Don't you think we ought to marry and flee
And I just froze oh my God how I froze
And in her eyes I just saw how angry she was
And than she said I should have known
I should have gone with Paris straight to Troy

One summer night under the moonlight
As I was walking along the river Nile
I heard her calling me
She said please Rolin wait and listen to me
Cleopatra oh my Cleopatra
The problem is not in you it's only in me
And then she said I should have known
That Mark's a much better man than you will ever become

I know you know that I know
That you want the world to think
that you're in love with Romeo
But it's not fair oh no it's not fair
I think that everyone should know what you and I have
And than she cried oh yes she cried
I never thought that anyone could cry so loud
And than she said you are no good
As if I know what she means by being good

You know that girl that lives next door
Few nights ago she said I fell in love
And I was afraid yes I was so afraid
What if she says it's with me or even worse with someone else
And than she said leave me alone
Why don't you leave so I did
But that's the worst thing I could do
Cause than she yelled you should know
When a girl says something she doesn't really mean so
Track Name: I don't know what I don't wanna know and I don't go where I don't wanna go
Now the English aren't what they used to be
And the Americans have overslept their dream
Now the Chinese grow they are so enorm
But the Arabs will be next to rule the world
Cause I don't know what I don't wanna know
And I don't go where I don't wanna go

All the Russians went down to Hollywood
And Israelis try to make their land look good
A union Europesque a fantasy burlesque
In Africa we'll try our new experiments
Cause I don't know what I don't wanna know
And I don't go where I don't wanna go ooh no

Oh mighty Lord you're so big and strong
Would you be so kind to reveal your plan
I will serve you well
For you I would even run through hell
But please tell me now what is on your mind
Cause I don't know what I don't wanna know
And I don't go where I don't wanna go

We could be good friends use each others influence
That's what we should do
And no one ever needs to find out the truth
You could rule the world
And I could do your dirty work
But please tell me now what is on your mind
Cause I don't know what I don't wanna know
And I don't go where I don't wanna go

The child is born new life new form
Look how fast he grows and before you know he's old
His life may be well planned and served
But that doesn't mean that he will save our souls
Cause I don't know what I don't wanna know
And I don't go where I don't wanna go oh no

Through centuries this earths disease
In countless shapes spreads like human race
The ancient Greeks and the Roman priests
Still can't define what is on their mind
The nationalist and the communist
Have realised it's just a matter of time
Before we all the young and old
Have cleared the road for a diplomat
The kings and queens and the poor mans kin
Will share the place where they'll wash their face
The oldest man and his late best friend
Will find a way to communicate
Cause I don't know what I don't wanna know
And I don't go where I don't wanna go

The journalist and the Judas kiss
Have wished for more than just silver and gold
The anarchist and the soldiers fist
Have fought so long that they forgot
What they're fighting for
The alchemist and the capitalist
Have made their gold now they're rich but old
The scientist and the spiritualist
Have cleared the road for the son of God
The solar strings and the true artist
Will find a way to unlock your chains
The life on earth may rise from dirt
And don't forget you're a part of that
Cause I don't know what I don't wanna know
And I don't go where I don't wanna go
