1. Wishes
by Corny Held  
3:54 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums, e-guitar
Corny Held: vocals, keyboards, bass

lyrics I wish I was a mermaid
At the bottom of the sea
With all those cute young fishermen
diving after me.
I wish i could just float
I wish I could just be
And anyway nobody would believe in seeing me

Come along, let uf float,
let us be free


I wish I was a phoenix
soaring in the air
With all the winds caressing me
but I don't really care.
I wish I could just rise
I wish I could just be
And then again nobody would believe in seeing me

Come along, let us glide
let us be free

I wish i was a song
in a great composer's mind
With all the people in the world
listening all the time
I wish I could just sound
A voice I want to be
And sometimes haunt them to make sure
they are not forgetting me.

Come along, do resound,
let us be free

I wish I was a clear palantir
in a wizard's hand
He would believe what I foresee
And he would be a friend.
I wish then I could show him
what is going to be
And if he did all right
he were to see what I can see

Come along, let us know,
let us be free.

2. Good To Feel Bad
by Corny Held  
3:43 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Volker Piske: bass
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
lyrics Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright
Save up the shadows from a lonely night

Sometimes it can be good to feel bad

Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright

In a strange kind of life
tears don't have to dry
they come streaming
& their meaning
makes you smile

And I say
Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright

What good is happiness and nothing more
What is it when there ain't a thing to long or crave for
What good is happiness - can be a bore

Sometimes it can be bad to feel good

Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright

In a strange kind of life
tears don't have to dry
they come streaming
& their meaning
makes you smile

It's good to feel bad

3. Nobody's Fool
by Corny Held  
3:21 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
Volker Piske: bass
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
lyrics You tried to buy me for a bunch of lies
Something’s gone wrong with our lives
Can’t understand why you want to stay
There ain’t no reason and there ain’t no way

Don’t talk me into things, it’s in vain
Don’t get on my nerves, don’t drive me insane

Cause I’m nobody’s fool, I’m gonna keep my cool

Get out of here, we can’t go on, we can’t go on like that.

There were times when you came to me
Told me you wanted to talk to me
Wanted me to listen and to be
There and I tried to tell you what I could see

then you slam the door if I don’t agree
It seems you only like to fight with me

But: I’m nobody’s fool, I’m gonna keep my cool

Sort of feel we can’t go on, we can’t go on like that.

Staying around was just a waste of time
Your way of thinking is too far from mine
Though sometimes you even try to be nice
& once in a while pretend to ask my advice

Just to change my mind, I can tell
Why can’t you shut up and go to hell

See: I’m nobody’s fool, I’m gonna keep my cool. bad

4. Spinning
by Corny Held  
3:33 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums, e-guitar
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar, bass
Michael Hrziwnak: keyboards
lyrics Time is spinning like my head, it's moving round and round
round and round it moves, and up and down

Life is spinning like my time, it's moving round and round
round and round it goes and up and down

Time, time, where've you gone, I won't come along
Time, where have you gone - Leave me alone


The past is spinning in my mind, it's moving round and round
round and round it moves, and up and down

Where have all the flowers gone and the memories of some
round and round they move and up and down

Time, time, where've you gone, I won't come along
Time, where have you gone - Leave me alone


My brain is spinning like my life, moving round and round
Up and down, left and right, round and round and nowhere

All the world a spinning wheel, turning round and round
Messy threads are on the ground and dance for me

Will I ever pick them up and weave a net for fortune
that's turned me down and turned around to spin its own ideas

Will they wrap their tentacles around eternity
I know what they are made of, but what is their destiny


Time,time, I know you've gone but I won't come along
Time, where have you gone - Leave me alone

5. Fall And Rise
by Alruna  
6:00 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, e-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
lyrics FALL and RISE

Fall and rise - fall and rise
At night the sun falls in the sea
And the night falls down on me
and the world falls into sleep
something's rising in a dream

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?

In fall the leaves fall off the trees
And cold rain falls down on me
Then snow falls on the mistletoe
And icy fog hides what I know
Watch it move and watch it go
Something's rising and will grow

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?

All life must fall in time
Something's rising in my mind
The world is falling, I stay here
I feel it somehow disappear
It is a show, it's no more real
It won't touch me, that's the deal
And everything's away some day
Something's rising, anyway.

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?
Something's rising

Fall and rise - fall and rise

6. The Handsome Cabin Boy
by Corny Held  
5:59 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
Volker Piske: bass
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
lyrics It's of a pretty female
As you may understand.
Her mind it went off rambling
into some foreign land,
She dressed herself in manly clothes,
Or so it does appear,
And she hired with a captain
To serve him for a year.

The captain's wife sh'd been on board,
She seemed in great joy
To think the captain had engaged
Such a handsome cabin boy,
That now and then she'd fling him a kiss,
And she would have liked to toy,
But 'the captain found out the secret
Of the handsome cabin boy.

Her cheeks they were like roses red
And her hair lay in a curl.
The sailors often smiled and said
she looked just like a girl.
But eating of the captain's biscuits
Her colour did destroy,
And the waist did swell of pretty Nell,
The handsome cabin boy.

It was in the bay of Biscay
Our goddamn ship did plow.
One night among the sailors
Was a fearful scurrying row.
They tumbled from their hammocks
For their sleep it did destroy,
And they swore about the groaning
Of the handsome cabin boy.

"Oh doctor, dear, oh doctor,"
The cabin boy did cry.
"My time has come, I am undone,
And surely I will die."
The doctor come a-runnin'
And a-smilin' at the fun.
To think a sailor lad should have
A daughter or a son.

The sailors when they saw the joke
They all did stand and stare.
The child belonged to none of them,
They solemnly did swear.
The captain's wife, she said to him,
"My dear, I wish you joy,
For 'tis either you or me's betrayed
The handsome cabin boy!"

Now each man take your tot of rum
And drink success to trade,
And likewise to the cabin boy
That was neither man nor maid.
Here's hoping the wars don't rise again
Our sailors to destroy,
And here's hoping for a jolly lot more
like the handsome cabin boy

7. May Your Dreams Come True
by Corny Held  
3:14 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Volker Piske: bass
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
lyrics You go because you say you must be on your own
I'm sort of in your way and I'm gonna be alone
You never said you would stay,
and you never stopped to roam
I had thought it was OK,
as long as you came back home

Now all things have changed,
& without you they're strange
I'll get used to it, there was more to get over
There were things I had seen
that have never been real
Cause you were never really my lover

So what I wish for the future, & what I wish for you
Is: May your dreams come true
All your dreams

You were always a dreamer, once high up or low down
& I couldn't rely on your smile or your frown
You forgot me and later
you remembered me by
But I loved you around
and I didn't care why

We won't have to break up,
we'll just be apart
It is sure gonna be hard to get over
But I'll manage to make it,
I'll be able to take it
Cause you were never really my lover

And what I wish for the future and what I wish for you
Is: May your dreams come true
All your dreams

If you 're leaving for good, you see tears in my eyes
Go ahead where you came, I don't want to hear lies
Some day you'll be old
and perhaps even wise
Keep the time that we spent
in your heart , it was nice

& if you should seek to see me next week
You just make up your mind and come over
We'll drink tea and we'll smile
and pretend for a while
to forget you were never my lover

8. Summer Storm
by Corny Held  
3:50 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
Volker Piske: bass
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
lyrics Big dark clouds are flying around
rain starts falling on the ground
winds caress the swaying trees
they dance and sing and clap their leaves

the pubs get full and the streets deserted
and inside the folks are singing, I heard it

they go: nanananananananana...
'cause the rain is warm like the summer wind
the rain is warm in a summer storm.

The rhythm of the thunder beats
like a rocksong through the empty streets
and the wind is wailing a tune of trance
on the edges of the garden fence

in the flashlight-show of the thunderstorm
the shadow-ghosts appear and they dance along.

they go: nanananananananana...
'cause the rain is warm like the summer wind
the rain is warm in a summer storm.

In a summer storm all the world is swinging
in a summer storm every thing is singing
All of nature is rocking and the mood is good
and the rain is just warm in a summer storm

Axel Wagner: drums
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar, bass
lyrics I'm just following my mood
it's gonna lead me where it's feeling good
& if you want to follow, too
why don't you come along & feel free

I just want to be with you
& I don't care if I'll be feeling blue
when you are making me feel so brandnew
tommorrow cannot haunt me.

Don't know where it's leading me
Don't know to what I will surrender
Caressing me or cheating me
or leaving me dispair

I'm just following a mood
I know it's gonna make me feel so good
Why don't you come along & follow, too
The present can't deceive me
br> See where it is leading you
& let it carry you away
Caressing you or cheating you
- join me & don't stay

I'm just following my mood
it's gonna lead me where it's feeling good
& if you want to follow, toobr> why don't you come along & feel free

Don't know where it's leading me
Don't know to what I will surrender
Caressing me or cheating me
or leaving me dispair

Go where it is leading you
& let it carry you away
Caressing you or cheating you
- join me & don't stay

10. Keep On Moving
by Corny Held  
4:56 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Corny Held:vocals, e-guitar, bass
lyrics I tried to take a short vacation
And I went through a land I had lost
It was a mystic revelation
When I remembered forgotten thoughts

And I was so much in the mood for missing you
when I saw the beauty of this world I was going through
I saw your eyes before me, the color of the sky
But I realized you weren't there and I fell in the mood to cry

Just tried to take a short vacation
I never came back, 'cause I got lost
turned out a mystic revelation
I couldn't find you there in my thoughts

And I just keep on moving

It was a sky like silk and satin
Pastel the colored world under mist
the setting sun paints clouds of fire
Canals reflect it through the black trees

& I was so much in the mood for loving you
when I saw the magic of the world I was going through
I saw you right before me, as if you were close by
but I realized it wasn't true, and I fell in the mood to cry

And I still keep on moving, moving through my time
you keep on moving

11. Misty Meadow
by Corny Held  
3:58 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar
lyrics When I hear Ihe sound of the falling rain
Glimpse erratic drops on my windowpane
Deep in their little light I see
No peace of mind is inside me
I want to lie down and take rest
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

When I find you standing at my door
When I know what you're waiting for
I feel somehow you're never free
& I need time to be with me
I want to lie down, take my time -
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

I want to lie down take some rest
I want to lie down out of sight
I want to lie down, take my time -
I want to take my time to live
I want to take my time to love
I want to take my time to think
I want to lie down
I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest
