Lyrics and 2nd voice: Lemmie





Worlds Neuroses is the only album where Living Death appears to have done something radically different. A commercial move to capture a larger audience?, prehaps. Some fans I've spoke to feel it is their worst album. The music (on average) tends to be slower than previous stuff, Thorsten's vocal style is very different. His classic skreechy-screaming voice is quite changed. When I first got this album I had initially thought this was a new singer. The only time he actually sounds like his old style is in the chorus for Schizophrenia. Despite the above changes, this album is actually quite good and is their best produced. Sound quality kicks compared to their previous stuff.

The album has a cleaner, less dark sound than other releases and the song styles vary considerably throughout the album; from a heavy and techno-thrashy "Worlds Neuroses" to slow and mellow "Down", psychedelic-sounding "Schizophrenia" to a more rock-style "Tuesday". Nonetheless the music definately shows the bands talents. Definately not worth over-looking (or listening).

Outstanding tracks: Die Young, Sacred Chao, Schizophrenia, Tuesday

LAST BIRTHDAY

On his seventh birthday
A bunch of school friends entered his home
Mummy still laughed as they started to celebrate
And then she left'em alone

In the middle of the mountain of presents they gave to him
Stood a nice fancy cake
With sweet sugar towers and fancy coloured flowers
Their eyes reveal expectation

And he did the first cut, he never thought about blood
There was an innocent smile in his face
Have his eyes told him lies, his face turned to white
'Bout little Sparky's head in the cake

C'mon cut the cake - Greetings to your
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Your dead dog's eyes watchin' you
Birthday - birthday it's your last

C'mon cut the cake - Greetings to your
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Your dead dog's eyes watchin' you
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Birthday - birthday it's your last

The years went by and he grew to a man
And everything seemed to be alright
But the nightmares torture him every night
'Cause Sparky's head pushed so hard in his brain

He couldn't control his pain any longer
So he baked himself a big cake
With poisoned content, no will to live any longer
'Cause he's dead since his seventh birthday

C'mon cut the cake - Greetings to your
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Your dead dog's eyes watchin' you
Birthday - birthday it's your last

C'mon cut the cake - Greetings to your
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Your dead dog's eyes watchin' you
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Birthday - birthday it's your last
Birthday - birthday it's your last


DIE YOUNG

You're aged fifteen and wanna do everything that
Mom and Dad were never able to do
No one who stops you, live your life, and realize
Your teenage dreams
Don't care about the world and societies problems
'Cause it makes no difference to you
If friends are long haired junkies or short haired drunkies
'Cause they all live their life too

We're young - you're old
Go out of our way
If your want to find your eternal peace - Do it!
We don't care

We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old
We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old

In the morning at school you are searching the guy
Who's selling your favorite drug
At 10 school is over for you, 'cause you don't wanna learn
Things you never could change
At home one more time you must hear all the things you must do
Or especially not
So you better move to town where you meet your crowd
In which everyone is thinkin' like you

We're young - you're old
Go out of our way
But you want to find your eternal peace - Do it!
We don't care

We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old
We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old

You ask yourself 'Why don't they leave me alone
With my life and with my dreams'
Even if Mom and Dad are going out they pass no chance
To declare what it seems
To have a child like you that doesn't care about his life
A nasty, crazy fool
You are laughing at 'em, we're all laughing at 'em
They're not for us! - Their morbid rules

We're young - you're old
Go out of our way
But you want to find your eternal peace - Do it!
We don't care

We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old
We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old

We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old
We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old
We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old
We all will - Die Young
There's no sense in growin' old

ON THE 17TH FLOOR

I stood in the hall and smiled with myself
As I asked me which lift I would try
Three of them waited, neon lighted
I choiced and entered the right

The liftdoor shutted before I pressed
The button to the floor I would go
I pressed number five but the light shined on 17
'What's That' I wanted to know

The cabin moved up, not able to understand how
I passed number five and soon I'll arrive, my heart beated faster now
The doors cracked and opened with sensor sound
The neon light flickered and the darkness was all around

Morbid sounds tortured my ears
Strong winds blew dust and sand into my eyes
Bestial heat came out of the cabin walls
It was intolerable and I knew I had arrived

On the seventeenth floor
On the seventeenth floor
On the seventeenth floor
On the seventeenth floor

I left the lift and it moved back down
I was standing right on the floor
The question was where to move, right or left?
Then in front of me opened a door

Red light was comin' out of it
And the floor bottom turned to red slime
I felt like my feet burn away
What was it that wanted me to die?

The faster I move the slower I go
Out of the walls came reptiles and bloody skulls
The room was endless, I sank deeper into the slime
I wondered why I didn't lost my mind

Then I felt strong arms pulling me out of the heat
I was shocked that my bones were the rest of my body I keep
I came to the end of the room and opened the back door
What I saw drove me insane - my dead body in a mirror

On the seventeenth somewhere
On the seventeenth somewhere
On the seventeenth somewhere
On the seventeenth somewhere
On the seventeenth somewhere
On the seventeenth somewhere
On the seventeenth somewhere
On the seventeenth somewhere


DOWN

I saw you first time in a dinner hall
You looked like a girl that will never fall
You smiled a sweet smile as I touch your hand
Never thought about that you'll drive me mad
I saw you first time in a dinner hall
You looked like a girl that will never fall

You - gimme what you got to give
You - bring me into seventh heaven
I - follow you and I believe
I - got to beat you never

You're doing things turnin' me around
But you were bringin' me - Down
I've found it out what it's all about
The way you're treatin' me - Down

You're doing things turnin' me around
But you were bringin' me - Down
I've found it out what it's all about
The way you're treatin' me - Down

We had good times, all days and nights
Often ending in strong fights
I never knew a girl like you
But baby, I'm not lovin' you

You - only give if you can take
And You - will bring me down one day
I will - treat you like you do
'Cause I - will be the illness for you

You're doing things turnin' me around
But you were bringin' me - Down
I've found it out what it's all about
The way you're treatin' me - Down

You're doing things turnin' me around
But you were bringin' me - Down
I've found it out what it's all about
The way you're treatin' me - Down

You - only give if you can take
And You - will bring me down one day
I will - treat you like you do
'Cause I - will be the illness for you

You get more weak under my hand
We do a nice trip into horror land
C'mon little baby drink your wine
And recognize that your body's mine

You - gimme what you got to give
And I - bring you into seventh heaven
Now You - follow me and must believe
That I - treat you if it's right for me

Now I'm doing things, turning me around
And I will bring you - Down
Have you found it out what it's all about?
The way I'm treatin' you - Down

Now I'm doing things, turning me around
And I will bring you - Down
Have you found it out what it's all about?
The way I'm treatin' you - Down

Now I'm doing things, turning me around
And I will bring you - Down
Have you found it out what it's all about?
The way I'm treatin' you

WORLDS NEUROSES

Schizophrenic minds of human kind
Abnormal reactions control the minds
Of apparently normal people
But don't you know all people are equal

Neuroses - Worlds Neuroses
Neuroses - Worlds Neuroses

Neuroses - Worlds Neuroses
Neuroses - Worlds Neuroses

What to do with somebody disgusting you
Thinkin' he's not the one to live with you
Your abnormal feelings torture your brain
Workin' out a plan, you do what you can

Ironical observes destroy your facade
Before you start tricks you're going under the blade
Neurotical symptoms are in everyone
Nobody knows about things he had done

THE TESTAMENT OF MR. GEORGE

Fourteen family members sitting 'round the table
The testament opening is starting soon 'cause George is dead forever
Everyone wants the price for himself, the views of 'em show all
And if someone is handicapped the others have to fall

Family war. Mr. George cheats 'em right
Who's the one only getting money if the others die
Family war. Mr. George cheats 'em right

The Notary starts to read out the holy testament
Everyone's ears are growing big, every now and then
Thirteen meritables are enumerated, only one is left
Johnathan begins to know that he's unnecessary

A few days later he starts a diner and everyone of 'em comes
To show them that he's not angry, he knows what he does
He poisons the wine, for him it's a game
He only wants his right, 'til the end of this night

Family war. Mr. George cheats 'em right
Who's the one only getting money if the others die
Family war. Mr. George cheats 'em right

They celebrate and drink the wine and when they're all fallen down Johnathan's laughing loud

Now the revenge is coming to an end and Johnathan begins to build up a wall in the door

Then he opens a bottle of wine in the hall and cheers up to Mr. George...

Family war. Mr. George cheats 'em right
Who's the one only getting money if the others die
Family war. Mr. George cheats 'em right
Who's the one only getting money if the others die
Family war. Mr. George cheats 'em right
Who's the one only getting money if the others die

Family War. Family War. Family War


THE SACRED CHAO

The sphere of confusion, special agent in charge
Bureaucracy and aftermath, spirit advisor
The sphere of chaos, grand illuminatus
The sphere of discord, keeper of the Sacred Chao

They're workin' together for the magic Pentagon
Confusion the first, bureaucracy the second
Aftermath number three, chaos and discord
They're workin' together for the magic Pentagon
Helper and accomplice for the end of the world
No one of the puppets knows what is done
The end is comin' slow and no one feels the hurt

The Sacred Chao
The Sacred Chao....
The Sacred Chao
The Sacred Chao....

For searching the rear-rank men, you'll pay with your life
And if you find one, there are ten new of 'em behind
You find a track but it goes lost in darkness
You think you're workin' alone, you fall in helpless

They're workin' together for the magic Pentagon
The sphere of confusion, bureaucracy and aftermath
Chaos and discord, the end of the world
They're workin' together for the magic Pentagon
Helper and accomplice for the end of the world
No one of the puppets knows what is done
The end is comin' slow and no one feels the hurt

TUESDAY

Sunday I go to meet little Sally
And I jump up the stairs 'cause I wanna tell her
I wonder if we can start another waterbed rally
Sally laughs and what she says ain't a lie

Ride me till I cry
Push the pen, push the pen as high as you really can
Dive into my funny side

She opens her lips and the hot sweet taste
Makes me forget about the energy I waste
Feelin' better now 'cause I know the way how
To help her find the highest point and she screams loud

Ride me till I cry
Push the pen, push the pen as high as you really can
Dive into my funny side

What you gonna do on Tuesday?
I relax my brain before I go insane
She was so, she was so, she was fine
Get ready for doing it everyday
Not everyday, it's not my way
You will try, you will try, Yeah I'll try

Day after day, the silly old game
But Sally wants more, it's always the same
Sixty-nine, real fine, she got hers and I got mine
"Right boy make me shine, it's better now for me to die

Ride me till I cry
Push the pen, push the pen as high as you really can
Dive into my funny side

What you gonna do on Tuesday?
I relax my brain before I go insane
She was so, she was so, she was fine
Get ready for doing it everyday
Not everyday, it's not my way
You will try, you will try, Yeah I'll try

What you gonna do on Tuesday?
I relax my brain before I go insane
She was so, she was so, she was fine
Get ready for doing it everyday
Not everyday, it's not my way
You will try, you will try, Yeah I'll try

Ride me till I cry
Push the pen, push the pen as high as you really can
Dive into my funny side

The time is right today to take it to an end, okay
If Sally is sleepin' tight, I change her with a rubber maid
No more horror bedroom fights, rubber maids tell no tales
I touch her sweet rubber skin and slowly she starts to sing

Ride me till I cry
Push the pen, push the pen as high as you really can
Dive into my funny side

What you gonna do on Tuesday?
I relax my brain before I go insane
She was so, she was so, she was fine
Get ready for doing it everyday
Not everyday, it's not my way
You will try, you will try, Yeah I'll try

What you gonna do on Tuesday?
I relax my brain before I go insane
She was so, she was so, she was fine
Get ready for doing it everyday
Not everyday, it's not my way
You will try, you will try, Yeah I'll try

She was so, she was so, she was so, she was so...
She was so, she was so, she was so, she was so...
She was so, she was so, she was so, she was so...
She was so, she was so, she was so, she was so...
