Push the Limits
(Michael Cretu)
  Basic instincts, social life
Paradoxes side by side
  Don't submit to stupid rules
Be yourself and not a fool
Don't accept average habits
Open your heart and push the limits
  Open your heart (echoes)
And push the limits (echoes)
Gravity of Love
(Michael Cretu)
   
Latin "O Fortuna
velut Luna"
"O Fortune
like the Moon"
  Turn around and smell what you don't see
Close your eyes ... it is so clear
Here's the mirror, behind there is a screen
On both ways you can get in
 
  Don't think twice before you listen to your heart
Follow the trace for a new start
 
  What you need and everything you'll feel
Is just a question of the deal
In the eye of storm you'll see a lonely dove
The experience of survival is the key
To the gravity of love
 
Latin "O Fortuna
velut Luna"
"O Fortune
like the Moon"
  --------Whispers---------
Woman :
The path of excess leads to
The tower of Wisdom
  Man :
The path of excess leads to
The tower of Wisdom
---------Whispers----------
  Try to think about it ...
That's the chance to live your life and discover
What it is, what's the gravity of love
Latin "O Fortuna
velut Luna"
"O Fortune
like the Moon"
  Look around just people, can you hear their voice
Find the one who'll guide you to the limits of your choice
  But if you're in the eye of storm
Just think of the lonely dove
The experience of survival is the key
To the gravity of love.
Latin "O Fortuna
velut Luna"
"O Fortune
like the Moon"
Smell of Desire
(Cretu/Fairstein)
French Je ne dors plus
Je suis folle.
Je m'abandonne
I can't sleep anymore
I am crazy
I am letting myself go
French Je ne dors plus
Je suis a toi
I can't sleep anymore
I'm yours

Latin In nomine Christi, Amen

In the name of Christ, So be it
In the name of Christ, So be it
In the name of Christ, So be it
In the name of Christ, So be it
In the name of Christ, So be it
  The eternal flame will always burn
Feel - understand - and learn
Modern Crusaders
(Michael Cretu)
  Don't look back
The time has come
All the pain turns into love
 
  We're not submissive, we're not aggressive
But they think we can't defend
 
  Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power to face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights
 
  They're accusing, like always without knowing
What is just fiction or what is the truth
They have no mission, they have no passion
But they dare to tell us what's bad and what's good!
 
  Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power who'll face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our fights
 
Latin est affectus
et defectus
semper in angaria.
drive on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
Latin quod per sortem
sternit fortem,
mecum omnes plangite!
since Fate
strikes down the strong man,
everyone weep with me!
Latin nunc obdurat
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem,
egestatem,
potestatem
first oppresses
and then soothes
as fancy takes it;
poverty,
power
  Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power who'll face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our fights
 
  Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive!  
The Screen Behind the Mirror
(Michael Cretu)
  Here's the mirror
Behind there is a screen
Turn around
On both ways you can get in
The experience of survival
Look around just people, can you hear their voice
Find the one who'll guide you to the limits of your choice
The experience / of survival
Try to think about it ...
That's the chance to live your life and discover
Try to think about it
The experience of survival
The experience ...
The experience of survival
The experience ...

Just fighting for our rights
Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive

Latin Sors salutis
et virtutis
michi nunc contraria
Fate, in health
and virtue,
is against me
Latin Hac in hora
sine nora
cordum pulsum tangite;
quod per sortem
sternit fortem,
mecum omnes plangite!
So at this hour
without delay
pluck the vibrating strings;
since Fate
strikes down the strong man,
everyone weep with me!
Between Mind & Heart
(Michael Cretu)
  It's hard to find the balance when you are in love.
You're lost in the middle cause you have to decide between mind & heart.
  HEART is the engine of your body but BRAIN is the engine of your life.
  between mind & heart
between mind & heart
between mind & heart
Silence must be Heart
(Michael Cretu)
  Look into the others eyes, many frustrations
Read between the lines, no words just vibrations
Don't ignore hidden desires
Pay attention, you're playing with fire
  Silence must be heard, noise should be observed
The time has come to learn, that silence ...
Silence must be heard
Or diamonds will burn, friendly cards will turn
Cause silence has the right to be heard
  People talk too much for what they have to say
Words without a meaning, just fading away
  Silence must be heard, noise should be observed
The time has come to learn, that silence ...
Silence must be heard
Or diamonds will burn, friendly cards will turn
Cause silence has the right to be heard
