Who you wanna be? The owner of the moon,
A soon forgotten hero with a never fading bloom
Who you wanna be?
When you realize you're failing all the time
Who you wanna be?
Where do you wanna go?
When you leave your past behind
When you move yourself in circles and there's nothing left to find
Where do you wanna go?
When you feel there's nothing left for you to do
Who do you wanna be?
In a world of sad and loneliness
Who you wanna be?
When you're full of all the emptiness
Who you wanna be?
When the moon is on the wane -- You ordinary man
Man got a ticket to the life to come
You will attain the land a day
Man what do you wanna take along don't you know the price you pay
For your greedy thoughts your pretty gods you give yourself away
Who you wanna be? Where do you wanna go?
Mr. Mirror don't tell me what you see
I'm a content man in a modern world
That's all I want to be
Why should I go to a place I never wanted to belong.
I don't wanna be in a world of sad and loneliness
I don't wanna be the fool of all the emptiness
I don't wanna be a shadow in the rain
An ordinary man
