lyrics

waiting in dark and quiet streets you see a sign
no dragon's gonna scream tonight
in the blackness light a match by your face
smile, sinner! set the night ablaze!
tonight you're a sundancer

your clothes will be torn apart!
your mask will be shattered hard!
your feet, they will radiate!
your shoes will disintegrate!
your hair will be dripping sweat!
your face will be burning red!
your thoughts will be pure.
your skin meets the solid ground!
the generous fertile ground!
no catch-phrase or slogan sounds!
no hyper-reality
no neon pornography

back in the dark and quiet streets
clogged ears and eyes
malfunction in a world of hypes
jingles, sirens, sex-ads! check my hair!
my tired mind is unaware
but tonight
I'm a sundancer

my clothes will be torn apart!
my mask will be shattered hard!
my feet they will radiate!
my shoes will disintegrate!
my hair will be dripping sweat!
my face will be burning red!
my thoughts will be pure!
my skin meets the solid ground!
the generous, fertile ground!
no catch-phrase or slogan sounds!
no hyper-reality
no neon pornography
