I dream of assassins all dressed in white The worst kind of nightmare from which I can't hide I wake up with strangers Don't know where I am I screwed up my life My hopes are all gone I've waited for help Waited to long All that I wanted and all that I cherished All of my friends seem to have vanished I cling to a white line always on edge My friend paranoia is the best friend I've had When asked for my name I bow down in shame I screwed up my life My hopes are all gone I've waited for help Waited to long All that I wanted and all that I cherished All of my friends seem to have vanished

Gone 04:52
Quote if you wish My one confession The one obsession I'll admit to have This strange disease Will bring me to my knees I came to depend on you I just don't know how or when No more distraction And no more lies I can't go on like this I'd rather say goodbye Cause no darkness could hide my shame I need some time to come to terms At least with myself Rumors abound and words misunderstood I can't explain and I wouldn't even if I could My self esteem has sunk to an all time low I'm affected badly more than you could ever know Consideration I don't think I need I just want a helping hand to get me back onto my feet I never felt as low as this I can't go on cause all I cared for is gone

I have to confess There is no doubt When I'm with you There's no one else I'd rather be with And though there are times When all that I need Is to be on my own But the moment I call I want you around This strange obsession This uncontrollable love Like the heavens in motion We're like puppets controlled from above I watch your every move Cling to your every word Love all the things you do All that I need is just being with you I want you

There’s a man walking down the street With a guitar in his hand Leaving everything behind As he travels across the land Although he’s got no home and he’s got no wife In his own way he makes the most of life And when he sings that song in the subway I know he will be king for a day There’s a man who has seen the world And has been to so many places Just a few coins in his hat But a smile on so many faces Although there are cities where he’s never been They sing his tune at the canteen And if you dance to his song at the ballet I know he will be king for a day The song went from station to station People heard it across the nation They began to sing along Till everyone knew the song Although he doesn’t has dime to spend His song is known across the land And if you sing it loud in the alley I know he will be king for a day So if you hear it, sing out out loud Whistle along and make that man proud And when you sing that tune in the subway I know he will be king for a day

Shelter me 03:16
I watch the rain fall Slowly It tingles down my window stain Voices echo in the backroom Intruding on this wall to wall silence Shelter me Won't you shelter me please At times like these I need more Then just your company
6.
There were traces of mascara around her eye This at times she would use as an alibi And I can't think of anyone who knows her name But I don't want to play the waiting game Thoughts of romance filled my head As I listened to all the lies she said "Could you ever fill the void in my heart" Were her very words right from the start She said "Love is for dreamers I'll take you away To the land of believers And some other day When we are together Who else can you choose In the waiting game You can only loose" There were traces of blood around her lips As she touches me gently with her fingertips She knows as the best how to fake a smile And I am in heaven At least for a while She said "Love is for players And you think that you're one But this game is mine You never could have one When we are together Who else can you choose In the waiting game You can only loose"

And the fear was in his eyes As he realized he was lonely And the tears came down like rain As he asked himself again Am I the one and only And the rain was pouring down Look for shelter underground Look for compassion Then find out that your disease Like acid rain killing the trees Is like some fashion It is …. There are too many questions There is too little time To find out the answers Why words no longer rhyme Now he’s wondering why Why is it always me They’ll leave me here to die In solitary And there is no cure found in the land For him this virus means the end And there are too many things he still wants to do Neglected and torn He left them for you There are too many promises He knows they all lie Cause there’s only one truth And that is he’ll die And if love is the reason He can’t understand Why he has to go so soon to Echoland There he hopes to find his rest To lower his guard and stop his quest Until that time he regrets his lust And then it’s ashes to ashes And dust to dust

about

Under the Rose was the name of the band Victor played in from the end of the 80’s ‘til 1997. Rudy Meyerink and Victor both shared the love for the music of Gary Numan and synthesizers and decided to form a 2 piece band. The living room of Rudy in Amsterdam became their studio/rehearsal place. The old Bibelot in Dordrecht their only stage (twice).
Rudy died in 2013. On previous albums of La Lune Noire, Victor already used some of the songs he had written for Under the Rose. However, he was not the only songwriter in Under the Rose. Rudy wrote some brilliant pieces as well. But there were only demo’s, soon to be forgotten. Victor decided to re-record some of Rudy’s songs, so his legacy could live forever. Under the Rose was the obvious choice for the title of the new album.
