03.1 - Life, ©1997
Life is just an ordinary travel
A 'one-way-ticket' ride
Time is money is your guide
Speeding up to a higher level
Getting better and quicker
Drown your conscience in liquor!

• As the train leaves the station
• On its way down the track
• With an unknown destination
• You can never turn it back!

Wandering through the paradise
Where the honey covers the lies
Try to find the fruits of passion
In trees of intrigue and emotion
Traveling without a major goal
Makes no sense…
…You’re out of control!

The harbor releases the ship
On its way down a trip
Along the seas of life
A hard way to survive
And to face the fact
Drowning a conscience mind
You could have ship wrecked
Salvation is hard to find…

03.2 - Light, ©1997
In a time when I was younger
At the age of twenty-five
Days seemed to last longer
The benefits of eternal life...

Waiting-room cold and white
My system ready for the fight
Now, waiting for the final test
As the social diseases infest...

Doctor says: ‘No cure, no pay’
But the nurse takes away
The fears of another nightmare
You need some Intensive Care!

CHORUS:
• Fight for your right
• And you’ll see the light
• Fight for your right
• Guard in black and white
• Fight for your light
• In the dead of night
• Be patient, my friend
• Be patient, until the end…!

03.3 - Phantom, ©1997
Modern people live their lives
In a boring nine to fives
Some choose a virtual reality
To escape from insanity…

Some choose for self-destruction
The poisoned sweet seduction
Of the syringe or the XTC
Your mind becomes so free…

When the clock strikes twelve
Nightmare from a dusty shelf
Gives you frightening fears
Inviting you to screaming tears…

(Repeat first verse)

CHORUS:
• The phantom in your head
• Makes you feel so bad
• The phantom in your head
• Makes you feel so sad
• The phantom in your eyes
• Makes me realise
• That the dream in your head
• Makes you feel so bad…!

03.4 - Heart, ©1997
When I first met you
You were so innocent
Like Winnie the Pooh
You were my friend
Now, it's come to an end
Should I pay the rent…?

When we grow old and wise
We act in disguise
And feel that our lies
Are like clouds in timeless skies…

When the lancet of time
Turns passion into crime
Time has come to settle...,
The score: who wins the battle
Of love, of life, of time...

CHORUS:
• Your decisions are too hard
• Make incisions in my heart
• Your decisions are too hard
• Deep incisions in my heart
• Your decisions…!
• Deep incisions…!!

03.6 - Air, ©1994 & 1997
Wishing I could fly
To see the clouds in the sky
A silent place to sleep
To dream into the deep…

To reach my Castle in the Air
I think it sounds rather fair
With the sun to warm my heart
I think it is not too hard!

Wishing I could fly
Angel says: "It's your turn
You're going to die
Your wings will burn…!".

03.7 - Gold, ©1997
When I look into your Spanish eyes
I can’t no longer ignore the lies
That’s leading to a confusing fever
Maybe I’m too much of a believer

When I look for the Spanish gold
That should lie within your heart
I just find the chilling reality
That embraces me in-sanity!

03.8 - Hurricane, ©1994 & 1997
A storm of emotions crosses my mind
Twisted memories riding on the wind
Raging my dream…,
…Turning love into steam
Deflowering the garden of emotions
Unrooting the trees of passion
Tears leading to turbulent oceans
Castle-builder in a stormy session!

Hurricane, are you Hungry for love
Hurry, can you fly...
...Like a turtle dove
As the sensation of perfume…
…Fades away
Forever lost in mind…,
...forever lost in time
The fragile reminiscence will stay…
In a Castle of Ice…
...Covered with rime…!!

*******

04.1 - Game, ©1998
So, you sit there
At the other side
And watch the game
That has no name
Let us play fair
Black versus white
You might choose
To win or loose...

CHORUS:
• Make your move
• And play this game
• Feel your heart
• Right from the start
• The game will end
• When the King is lost
• So you might defend
• Him, at all times cost!

So, you sit there
At the other side
Of another morning
You win for pride
Without a warning
You start to fight
The shadows of the knight
You're losing sight...

You sit and watch
The moves in a match
You sit and wait
For the final move
That turns into mate
So, you must prove
Your Kings’ loyalty
That sets you free…

• Make your move
• And play this game
• Hold your heart
• In eternal flame
• This game will end
• In eternal fame
• Hold your heart
• In eternal flame
• Eternal game…
• Eternal fame...!!

04.2 - Checkmate (part 1), ©1998
Some seven years ago
You came into my life
As my friend and wife
Luck seemed to arrive
We let our minds blow
We let our bodies glow...

Love comes in so fast
But present turns into past
And our passion fades away
It is a point of no return
These bridges will burn
But friendship will stay...

CHORUS:
• I invite you to play
• Before life turns grey
• I invite you to stay
• And fight against fate
• If you are in doubt
• You need a time out
• It is not too late
• To avoid a C-h-e-c-k-M-a-t-e !

Misfortune comes in a way
I still remember that day
That a famous ship
Sunk on its first trip
Regarded with proud
Almost lost its crowd…

Behind the lines of your defense
You pretend your innocence
Exposing tears of pain
To convince me in vain
A false move in advance
Give us a second chance...

04.3 - Checkmate (part 2), ©1998
Last night, I had a dream
I woke up with a scream
Again, I had that vision
About my life some years ago
When I was full of ambition
Because society wants you to grow
To be decent and to work hard
To live for money, not by heart
The only fact I have to admit
I live by social benefit...!

• Life is a game...!
• Failure a shame...!

Last night, I had that fear
Life is a too heavy load to bear
Again, I had that vision
About my plans for the future
It almost felt like a mission
But now my life is a scar
Fate has driven me too far
A burning wound without suture
In the smiling face called: Fate
In the game of life…
…I am C-h-e-c-k-M-a-t-e !

• Tell me why?
• Tell me why!

*******

06.1 - Fading Light, ©2001
When the ice melts away
My world begins to freeze
But hope vanished by the breeze
My life is a fading light…

CHORUS:
• Nowhere to run anymore
• Future has closed its door
• Nowhere to hide anymore
• Destiny is an open door
• The pain I feel inside
• Is even darker than before
• But a vision grows bright
• Life is a fading light…

As daylight creates the shadows
So the darkness inside myself grows
Just like a sunlit face exposing pain
My eyes are tired now; it feels insane

When my body grows older
My heart is getting colder
‘Cause our planet gets too warm
Giving us just rain and storm…

When the last tiger is killed
So once again my heart is chilled
But I do understand it now
This life is a fading light…

06.3 - Mother Earth, ©2001
People just rule the Earth
Decide about life and dead
Women about giving birth
But life is ruled by threat
We conquer and we fight
And think it’s all-right…

• Mother Earth… cries for you
• Mother Earth… dies for you...

Politicians rule in vanity
With their refined smiles
They decide about our life
In hollow phrases, empty files
Put their slogans into strife
They just call it humanity…

Cold cities without trees
Caused by the deadly breeze
Of pollution and nuclear attack
Blue sky turns into black
Twisted visions of Judgment Day
Burning world fades away…

06.6 - Rise & Fall, ©2001
The expression of modern life
Is ruled by money and mobile
If you don't want to be alone
Don't go out without a phone…

• Have we lost common sense
• Do we ignore nature's call
• Do we need another chance
• Or is it human's Rise & Fall?

Digital answers when you dial
All that shit-chat in overload
Easy access by anonymous pin-code
Your life is caught up in a file…

All those angry young men in suit
Oh, their trendy lifestyle is so good!
Sure, they have too much to choose
But they fear their lives to lose…

So when standards increasing fast
No success means you are outcast
Modern life is a herd in paradise
Modern life is a bird in paradise
Breeding fast and away it flies…

06.10 - Daydreams, ©1999 & 2001
So, here I live on day by day
Without work or social esteem
Haunted by the hollow phrases
Of successful men with empty faces
I belong to the lost generation
Forgotten son in this 'damn' nation
Lonely traveller on a final station
Forever lost, lost in damnation…

CHORUS:
• Please, take me by the hand
• Lead me through the wasteland
• Of confusion and broken dreams
• Of desillusion and silent screams
• Lead me to the promised land
• Where my daydreams will stand
• Lead me to the promised land
• Where my daydreams never end…

And now, I fear night and day
My ambitions slowly fade away
My life turns out to be a hell
I‘m locked up in a prison cell
Oh, release me from my chains
That holds my mind in pains
Oh, relief me from my fears
That keeps my eyes in tears…

So, once again I live on and on
But now, safe in my private shell
All the fight and fears have gone
Am I really saved by the bell?
Yes my friend! So open your heart
And show me one more feeling
The touch of a mental healing
Let us now make a new start…!

*******

08.1 - French Kiss, ©2004
This new world is a loving couple
They love, they argue and they fight
Blinded of love for each other
So safe…! Why should they bother
Just in the name of human right
About… well, how others died

Watching our favorite TV-station
Informed about the global situation
Trouble again in some far away nation
Where democracy is verbal masturbation
The cold war between east and west
The conflicts between rich and poor
Has changed to terror at last
Now… reason has closed its door

CHORUS:
• But… We still love the human race
• With narrow mind and empty face
• Open arms that need to embrace
• With eyes closed and face to face
• Intimate moments of sharing showers
• Tongues wrestling in sweating hours
• Are these the things we really miss?
• This world’s living’s just a French Kiss!

08.2 - Holy Days?, ©2004
Traveling to the South of France
Saved our money for what a chance
We are heading for the highway
What a nice day to be on holiday
The road is crowded by so many cars
But we enjoy the ride, it’s not so far
So much color at the side of the road
Of empty tins and trash of candy-bars

CHORUS:
• Plenty of time and temptation
• Plenty of wine and seduction
• Double fun in so many ways
• We love to be on holidays!
• Plenty of time and temptation
• Plenty of wine and seduction
• Double time in so many days
• We love to be on holidays!
• (We love to be on holidays...!)

So now we lay down at the beach
Where the sand is hot and the bear is cold
But there is nothing to complain about
Although the music is a little too loud
As we might choose from five radio-stations
And strange talk from so many nations
But there are chicks and hangover everywhere
Simple pleasure (on a holiday) without care!

We still lay down at the beach
Oh honey, I love you so much
I’m still fond of that peach
Now I need your sensible touch
So now let our bodies get together
Intimate moments of sharing showers
Tongues wrestling in sweating hours
Simple pleasure (on a holy-day) without care!

08.8 - Du Vin, No Pain, ©2004
I like to drink some wine
It makes me feel so fine
I like to drink some beer
Then my life is without fear…

Every day I need to celebrate
Life with a glass of champagne
But I prefer some whiskey
When my life gets too risky…

• And if you have some trouble
• Drown it and make it a double
• To stop the inner pain
• Is it victory or is it fate
• What my life might gain
• Oh, it’s not too late
• What my liver might gain
• Oh…, it’s not too late!

I like to have a smoke
It makes me feel so fine
Or maybe I try some coke
Then my life is out of line…

• Oh…, it’s not too late!

08.9 - Bonne Nuit!, ©2004
At night when I go to sleep
I’m afraid of the dark
Surrounding me like a wall
Very thick and very steep

At night when I try to sleep
I’m haunted by some creep
Gathering round, round my bed
Empty face of the undead

Fawn: 'Do you have to fight?
This whole night long
Do you really have to fight?
‘Till dawn, you must be strong'!

Even at day when I try to rest
I’m unable to defend myself
As those ghosts do infest
Trying to conquer my weaker half

In the evening I get frightened
Control yourself: This is no good
But it is a memory of my childhood
When my darkness never enlightened

Now she wishes me good night
It’s gonna be alright
The good fawn sets me free
She wishes me: bonne nuit!

Fawn: 'Now I wish you good night
It’s gonna be alright
It’s me who sets you free
I wish you: Bonne Nuit'!

*******
09.4 - Cats & Dogs, ©2007
Always remember
Behind the clouds of your life
The sun will be shining
To warm your body & soul...

Always remember
After rain and storm
The sun will be shining
To warm your body & soul...!

09.7 - Circle of Life, ©2007
This is the Circle of Life
This is the Circle of Life...

*******
11.2 - Echoes, ©2011
I'll leave it all behind
All those haunting echoes
So, I try to understand
Some of my ol' habits
I'll take another chance
Embrace it in a dance!!
So I leave it all behind
All those haunted echoes...

Now, I'll leave it all behind
All those haunting echoes...
So I leave it all behind
All those haunted echoes...!

11.3 - Desert-iT, ©2011
So, here you are once again
Turning back to the stage
Where it all started then
Emotional suicide in rage
To feel that pain so deep
Is needed to realise that
The spirit inside your head
Is awake and not asleep!

• Whenever you feel deserted
• Try to stay cool and alerted
• Whenever you feel that pain
• Like a desert without rain
• Focus on what is now
• As time goes by so fast
• Enjoy any moment in time
• ‘Cause it might be your last!
• Enjoy any moment in time
• ‘Cause it might be your last!

So here you are once again
Experience in life turned you
Into an older but wiser man
Released from ol' habits too!
Compassion is all you need
Let love flow instead of greed
Its pureness is all you wanted
Do not take it all for granted!

11.4 - Journey, ©2011
“So, this is your journey of life
Your destiny is still unknown”.

Thank you!
“You're welcome.
Enjoy it. Enjoy the ride...!”
.

So this is my journey of life
My destiny is still unknown
Unknown when I will arrive
Unknown when it will end
But the time left is still my own
I'll enjoy the time
The time left is still my own
I’ll enjoy the time...!
OF MY LIFE...!

11.6 - Insights!, ©2011
Sometimes I like to travel
Beyond the speed of light
And to leave it all behind
What matters to the mind
It is an unknown dimension
Experiment on a mental level
It feels so light and strong
Released from right or wrong

Sometimes I like to travel... fast!
Beyond the speed of sound
To catch those words unsaid
Spinning around in my head
Sometimes I do not understand
Why the time goes by so fast
Slips through my fingers like sand
Now, I have that insight at last!

Sometimes I like to travel
Beyond the power of reason
I need to cross that line
And to leave it all behind
Released from what is mine
But now with an alerted mind
I've to accept it like any season
Just to be here will be fine!

CHORUS:
• So when insights come inside
• They change the way we see
• Insight in we share the light
• Outside in, we feel so free
• Insight out we know what’s right
• Insight..., into the light
• Out of sight, but into the light
• Insight..., step into the light!
• Insights...!!!

11.7 - Changes, ©2011
Changes come and go
Like the tides of the sea
Accept it as a part of life
And do not ask: why me?
Fate runs in a filthy flow
That you need to survive
But luck is just a sudden blow
Goes by quickly, you know!

Now, many changes have past by
Sometimes you still wonder why
Some of them caused you pain
And hit you like a full speed train
Some of them made good sense
To an open mind without defense
Sure it helps you to understand
What destiny might have planned

Changes come and go by
Like the waves of the sea
Accept it as a part of fate
And do not ask me why!
Fate runs in a filthy flow
That you need to survive
But luck is just a sudden blow
Goes by quickly, you know...!

*******
12.2 - C4 Yourself, ©2015
When you are in a strange situation
Maybe it's part of your destination
The journey of life to another station
Use these symbols of life for yourself

When you are in a dangerous situation
Try to avoid the point of detonation
That needs further X-plane Nation
Learn from it, use your imagination

CHORUS:
• Believe in yourself, see for yourself
• Believe in yourself, see for yourself
... C 4 Yourself...!

When you are in a strange situation
Maybe it's part of your destination
To realise what is going on here
To find a better way without fear

When you are in a tricky situation
Try to avoid the point of no return...
Save your soul, don't let it burn
Find the love of your life in return!

Chorus...

12.4 - Path of Truth, ©2015
We all know one of those days
That destiny changes your life
Stings into your heart like a knife
In so many unexpected ways

We all know one of those days
That politicians changes your life
Minister, please listen to my story
And regain my right and glory

Am I the only one, who seeks and sees
The truth, because I know what's right
Listen to me and give me a chance
And do not misjudge me in advance

It seems like a wide-spread conspiracy
It's not the path I've chosen so far
It's a paralysed X-posure to legacy
So I need to find the path of truth!

CHORUS:
• For now I know what is right
• The truth is there to find
• And it will open your mind
• The truth will shine bright

• For now I know what is right
• The truth is there to find
• Put me on the right track
• And follow the bright light

• Give back what belongs to me...!
• Give back what belongs to me...!
• The path of truth sets me free...!


14.3 - Forest Tales, ©2015
Welcome to this old and forgotten forest
Where all the trees talk while they rest
So listen to the whisper of the breeze
The collected wisdom of all these trees

Please, follow me on these fairy trails
Look at all the crazy creatures around
Revealed on these adventurous tracks
They are there, but they make no sound...

Again my music tells another tale
Oh no, it's not about the Holy Grail
It's not about dragons and knights
It's just a variation of the old fights

We fight against the ego-devil inside
Lies deep within us, as old as mankind
But it fades away in a conscious mind
So stay alert and you will see the light

CHORUS:
• So, tell me that I am right
• Tell me I can see the light
• Shining through the trees
• Whispering by the breeze

• Tell me that I must be strong
• Tell me that this ain’t wrong
• Face the elements like a tree
• Conquer your fear and feel free!

• Tell me to believe in our love
• Tell me to believe in myself
• Face the facts like a man
• Open your heart and feel free

• Like a forest sheltering the tree...
• Like a forest sheltering the trees...

14.6 - Talking Trees, ©2015
And the oak-tree asked the willow
In his wooden voice: dark and slow
'Why on earth are you weeping?’
I have problems with sleeping
Cause I feel sad about mankind
Common sense is hard to find

And the willow asked the oak-tree:
‘Why do you feel so relaxed and free?’
I'm just a witness: silent and lazy
Are all these people gone crazy?
Are all these people gone crazy?

All this misery, pain and fear
All this trouble without need
Sacrifice me so they can read
My message, loud and clear...!

Let us live together in peace...!
...in peace...!

*******
15.4 - Full Moon (dedicated to Shiva †), ©2017
At the end of that awful day
My best friend suddenly passed away
Too eager to live, too young to die
He lost his final battle with a cry
In despair I went out for a walk
Followed by a Full Moon shining bright
The only one to whom I could talk (about)
The deepest friendship in a man's life

CHORUS:
• I'll always remember you my friend
• For all the fine moments we shared
• I hope you'll have a better life up there
• Enjoy the happy hunting fields forever…

Although I still miss him every day
He opened my heart for another way
A challenge to make new choices
I hear him speak in so many voices
A soulmate in struggle and strife (life)
As he shed me some comfort and light
Many times he tried so hard to survive
But sadly, he spent all his nine lives...

Chorus...

15.6 - Moon Girl, ©2017
Some years ago I started dating
In the sad world of leftover mating
Trying to find me a nice looking lady
But it was all fake: dark and shady
Because, when I met horny Heather
We only talked about work and weather
Empty and safe words without emotion
Instead of sharing love and devotion

CHORUS:
• So I decided to fly to the Moon
• Sure I’ll meet my dreamgirl soon...
• My spaceship is ready and waiting
• A whole new area of distant dating
• I really hope that she will agree
• Sure, she’s waiting there for me
• There is only one problem to go
• Need some light for a lovely flow
• So to speak...

I also chatted with unmarried Joan
But she’s still waiting there for the right man
And I also talked with shallow Shelly
Her words echoed in her silicon valley
I also met a girl I call luscious Lucy
She was a career-bitch and too busy
I fantasized how to explore her...
Well you know what most men want!

CHORUS:
• So I wanted to fly to the Moon
• I hope to meet my dreamgirl soon...
• My spaceship is ready and waiting
• A whole new area of distant dating
• I really hope that she will agree
• Sure, she’s waiting there for me
• There is only one problem left
• She lives at the dark side of the Moon
• So to speak… yeah...!

EPILOGUE
Now..., I am waiting here in the cold
Surrounded by a chilling darkness
No woman to embrace or to caress
No love but only lies were sold...
Only true lies, I have been told...
She lives at the dark side of the Moon


15.7 - Fool Moon, ©2017
… Cried the Lunatic to the Moon
I'm not a mad dog or a crying wolf
And you are not made of cheese
So please, shine your spotlight on me

… Cried the Lunatic to the Moon
I'm not a mad dog or a crying wolf
And you are not made of cheese
So please, shine your spotlight on me
LET US STAY IN TUNE...!!!
Let us stay in tune...
Let us stay in tune...
Let us stay in tune...
Forever!!

16.4 Saint George, the Dragon-Slayer, ©2018
A long time ago - somewhere in the past
Suddenly a dragon - spit out his - heavy fire
A small village was burned in his blast
So the poor crowd just cried in despair
Saint George - we believe it's rather fair
That you will help us - please, Sire
And bring back the princess as well...!

Sir Knight, pick up your lance and shield
And defeat this creature - in the battlefield
Saddle your horse quickly - for a ride
Protect us villagers - and start to fight
Kill this fire spitting and dangerous beast
After your victory - we want to make us a feast
A feast...

As a man of honour - he has to protect
And destroy this creature - till it's wrecked
After a long fight - he got only one chance
He pierced him in his heart - with his lance
The he could safely return - to his crowd
We are so proud - the all cried out - LOUD!!
Did they all cried out loud ?!


16.8 Burn the Ice-Queen, ©2018
Burn the Ice-Queen
'Cause we all have seen
She was the one, for sure
Who invited that Crazy Creature

Instead of facing reality
We better believe the lie
Passing the blame in vanity
There's more than meets the eye

First, we need to melt away
Our pride and prejudice
Just like any Ice-Queen
On a warm and sunny day

Instead of facing reality
We better believe in our lie
As there's someone else to blame
That's the way to claim our fame
Passing the blame for humanity
There's more than meets the eye
... meets the eye...
