A walk on the razor’s edge
Music: TOT / Words: M. Seebach

Verse 1
gods of all directions
religions of different cultures
power beyond all holy
faith kills, faith makes blind

Bridge 1
you have to walk the razor’s edge

Verse 2
even then you won’t see him
just death and ruin
power and sacrifice
the carpet to paradise
Bridge 2
do you want to walk
the bloody path of god
his gold is your duty for life

why do people believe in gods
pillar of a brittle life
cement for a cracked foundation
or a wooden cross in stormy sea
maybe just a stubborn thought
the only thing you can’t distort
not even by the rules of nature

everything turns, the earth, the time
and even the atoms
everything is in motion, everything lives
you have to go forward
decay comes with standing still
because of everything that puts up a fight
will be extinguished

Spoken passage
people do everything to strengthen their faith
anchor in the flesh
on bloody ground of torn up wounds
pulled by hate and war

Bridge 3
but no one realizes that death and birth
are the real fixed points in life
connected with each other by the ribbon of life
they build start and destination

Bridge 1 - Verse 2 - Bridge 2 - Chorus - Spoken passage – Bridge 3

Verse 3
religions creates borders, worlds scars
our freedom was isolated long time ago
and banished in heaven
its sacrifices burned in hell
smoke and ashes is all that will remain
