lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Here we are
We stand in line
One more time today
There is no sense
The cigarette in hand
It’s all gone bad
No name, privilege, no hope and fame




lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Head crash - I can't see you
Spit teeth - I can hear you
I feel your pounding me onto the street
I’ve learned to know the taste of concrete




lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Electric broadcast
The new transmission waves
Turn the dial
Transistor radio
The deadpan voice I want to hear




lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Mobile phones
Commuter trains
The Terminus is full of men
Crisscross network
Zigzag railway
The next stop is Waterloo




lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

I synthesise and press a lighted key
Turn it on, compose a melody
Redo from start, I need more rhythm
1 and 4 was for the Commodore
A catchy beat, I put it on repeat
I program more, but still it’s incomplete
Start and stop, where’s the perfect pitch?
I won’t give up until I tap my feet.




lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Broken frames
Shattered glass
Like a monochrome film
The replaceable background
Flickers and dissolves
Out of control




lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

High-rise buildings
Low cost apartments
Financial district
Industrial area
Rows of blue collars




lyrics by Raymond I. Rohonyi
music by Theatre of Tragedy

Look up here
Look down there
I am the new man
I'm tangled in wires
Chipset adept
Memory load




schauspiel von Raymond (Von T. Wolff & G. Magin korrigiert)
music by Theatre of Tragedy & Pal Bjastad

«Meine Augen sind so dunkel,
Auch sind die Visionen schwarz,
Schwarz wie die Nacht;
Der Dammerzustand des Menschen -
Ist meine Zeit des Daseins.»




play by Raymond
music by Theatre of Tragedy

«Had I what it taketh, I would do;
I sense - I cannot sense,
I am - yet! I am not -
Once I kiss'd the image
Of the Seven Angels of Death...»
