1. Moonrise Bandversion
by Corny Held  
4:40 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar, keyboards
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Heinz "Fridolin" Friedrich: e-guitar

lyrics Moon rises over the forest,
moon rises over the town
Moon flying white horses
moonlight is pouring down - like milk
Moonlight is all around
Keeps dripping on the ground
All things begin to float
Drowse - daytime in a boat
And it's dripping from trees
and dancing on seas
and streaming over meadows
creating beautiful shadows,

*
Strange voices out of water,
strange voices in the wind
Strange features, night's daughters
mild creatures, songs they sing - like silk
Knowing a lullaby
breathe veils around the sky
sounds drizzling out silence
trying to drown violence
they know what rest is,
they can give peace,
and they don't disturb a lover
and offer wonderers cover.

*
They can as well flood wisdom with tears
Those they don't like
will only sense fright and fears -
It's dangerous - rapturous - treacherous

*
Moon rises over the forest
mild mellow over the town
Narcotic resources
spilt moonlight pouring down - like milk.

(English)

Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
Hans Schulz: vocals
lyrics Want to be your lady, like I used to be
And I hope maybe we're gonna meet
You're gone and I'm only longing and lonely

I'm missing you
You're just a handsome guy I know
Walking with you was a show
What you've been doing
I don't want to know

And I can't live without your love any more.

Want to be your lady, be it again
And I hope maybe we're still friends
But now I fell only Low and lonely

I am missing you

If you have time, come over now
I want to see you anyhow
I have been missing you so much
I long to hear you, to feel your touch

And I can't live without your love any more

3. Pictures Of A Dream
by Corny Held  
5:20 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Wim Kehrmann: piano
lyrics You're in another world
You're in your own true world
A world I cannot share
I cannot reach you there.
Life is too cruel for you
Sleep on, forget the truth
I can read in your eyes
There's wisdom in disguise

I want to share your pain
I want your love again
Want to read in your book of dreams
Don't send me out like this,
You're worth a million times
More than all other guys
Who never doubt or fear
Inside your eyes it's clear

Too short so great a time
When I could drink your wine
Some months could give me more
Than twenty years before.
Most perfect love affair
I will not cease to care
I learned to read your eyes
I know there are no lies

I can read in your eyes
And I see pictures out of a dream

You're in another world
You're in your own true worid
A world I cannot share
I cannot reach you there.
Life is too cruel for you
Sleep on, forget the truth
I can read in your eyes
There's wisdom in disguise

I want to share your pain
I want your love again
Want to read in your book of dreams
Don't send me out like this,
You're worth a million times
More than all other guys
Who never doubt or fear
Inside your eyes it's clear

Too short so great a time
When I could drink your wine
Some months could give me more
Than twenty years before.
Most perfect love affair
I will not cease to care
I learned to read your eyes
I know there are no lies
I can read in your eyes
And I see pictures out of a dream
Pictures, don't you wake up

4. Day Dream Bandversion
by Corny Held  
4:20 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar
Andrea Reiß: violin
Hans Schulz; vocals
lyrics When you see me doing nothing I am not wasting time
When you see me doing I might be feeling fine
Cause I am where I want, lost in my mind
Have you ever tried a day dream, try and see what you find.

There are people who are busy trying to catch a bit of time
But this way they won't grasp it, and they don't see the sun shine
Life is not just outside, it takes place in your mind
Have you ever tried a day dream, try and see what you find.

Don't say it's good for nothing if you're able to dream
Don't say its not true, just because it's not real
Time passes anyway, if you feel it or not,
Watch out, it'll grab the things you think you have got

When you're low and don't know if there is freedom of a kind
When you cannot relax and you fear what's behind
Looking so hard for something that can ease your mind
Have you ever tried a day dream, try and see what you find.

There are times when I'm lost in a day dream

5. Words Can Kill
by Corny Held  
3:32 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass

lyrics You are so careless when you speak
A spoken word is like a bird
rt won't return once if it's released
And a word, it can kill. a word, it can hurt.

Scars on the soul cannot be seen
Don't treat me like a piece of dirt
Why do you say what you don't mean?
Yes, a word, it can kill, a word, it can hurt,

You know how to use words as weapons
But a target ain't always around
It's all right, it makes you feel better
And you don't give a damn how it sounds

You don't have to insult me
And I don't wont you to lie
It's the way you are talking
That makes me want to cry
Words can also be soft and gentle
Words can be remedies
Words, they can kill a feeling
Words can mean war or peace
And they can be sharp, and heartless, and shooting
And like enemies

And a word, it can kill, a word It can hurt.

6. Time Is A River
by Corny Held  
4:57 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
Bernd "Benno" Schulze: bass

lyrics Tell me what will the new year bring, will it be just pain and sorrow?

Tell me if it's joy and love. What is going to be tomorrow?

Tell me what'll the future bring, our present is just borrowed.

Summer will come after spring. Tell me what will be tomorrow.

Time is a river, it carries me along

Hear the fish in the water sing me a song.

Years can be oceans, and a season is a lake

Deep or shallow, rough or mellow, anything to take.

Flowers are blooming in the snow, there's harmony in thunder.

Wine and wisdom make them grow in the grey clouds and down under.

I don't care what the season is as long as I'm one with it,

First or last don't make sense in a timeless world, let's have it all at once.

Wintertime lover, will you be here in spring?

Will the lark in the meadow carry a ring?

Summertime lover, will you be here in fall?

Late or early have no meaning, let's Just have it all.

Good night, sleep well, winter tale, meet you in the morning.

Next time we are born again, lulled to dreaming of summer,

Told by raindrops on the roof, sung by storms and fairies:

Pale is your ice and you fake delight and your crystal spirit's feeble.

Tender your power, power of words told,

Resting on bridges over the cold.

Sleep well, you nightmares, power of chains In trance -

See the daylight in the night, all the elves wake up and dance.

Ride on spring's humming till it'll change its tune

Leave out what is coming, it's coming too soon.

7. Jealousy
by Corny Held  
5:14 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar

lyrics You got another woman
You got another girl
I know it ain't the first time
And I know you you too well

You're with her just because she feels new
And your vanity wants to be pleased
But she won't love you better than I do
And I know ways you don't like to be teased

I'm gonna find myself some cute guy
I won't have trouble with that
There ain't no point in sitting round and cry
It's hard enough to take that you keep making me sad

You'll be running back home to me

8. Like A Leaf In The Wind
by Corny Held  
5:11 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar
lyrics Love is like a leaf in the wind
It might get blown away
Falling from the tree where it grew
And it never knows where it may stay.
Love is like a beam of light
It might cast shade or blind
Like a wizard it makes mountains move
And it can turn water into wine.

Love is like a snowflake so nice
Just handle it with care
If can melt in heat or turn into ice
Or Just vanish into the air.
Love is like a bird on the roof
It can fly above the ground
And then it might come back or leave
And it might turn the world around.

Love is like a beggar in the street
A searching life he leads
But he feels at home where he can meet
A tiny bit of what he needs-
Love is like a painting of art
A million points of view
Like a rainbow in the dork
And it cannot grow old, only new.
You may find it in the alley where the ragged people are
And it feels good when it hovers to the moonlight and the stars
Doesn't ask where it is welcome, doesn't care where it may be
And it never minds a thing, it's only free
Like a leaf in the wind.

9. Soft Summer Rain
by Corny Held  
5:29 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar
lyrics Look out of my window - the sky comes floating down
It is just a warm, grey day in May
Radioactive fallout is washed into the ground
A warning we should hove learned from yesterday

They say we can't afford it to try out something new
Ask again: When will they ever learn?

They cannot eat profit and poison our food
Ask again what they've done to the rain

Human life has limits in reality
You can't tell the future in advance
Only four dimensions of which you know but three
Don't give chance another deadly chance

Ch.: They said it was progress, they said is was safe
And they said they had been founding civilization in this way
They forgot they weren't perfect, that they. too, could make mistakes
Now they're building death a cradle, just a coffin full of waste
And it looks just like a little soft summer rain

10. What You Are Saying Don't Mean Nothing To Me
by Corny Held  
5:39 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass

lyrics You try hiding your love in a mirror
And it is showing only my mistakes
Reaching out for it the glass broke in splinters
Like the broken pieces of our yesterdays
And I found out:
All I know is, life has been running on
Over me, round me. past me, trying to deceive me

You are losing my love in a fire
All you know is how to hurt me
Crystal ball memory burning desire
There is nothing when I try to touch what I see
And I found out:
All I know is. time has been running on Over me, round me, past me, trying to deceive me
And what you're saying don't mean nothing to me
No more.

11. Home
by Corny Held  
3:32 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals
Klaus Auster: drums
Hubert Kycinski: bass
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar

lyrics For a long time I've been searching for something I had lacked
I never knew what it could be
With oh so many people and places I could go
too many things I hated to see

And they told me I'd need reason
and they said I needed wealth
that I couldn't do without things
like security or health
But I found what I miss, now I know what it is
'Cause no place was a home for me

For a short time I'd been trying to settle down and stay
and it made me feel homesick and blue
Cause too long I'd been clinging to rock-music and singing
Without it I had nothing left to do

I felt lonely in the crowd
they told me a bunch of lies
to work by day and sleep at night
and said there'd be no taking without giving
But for sure they are wrong, I can always sing a song
for a living.

When I go along the road it's so cosy in the car
I love the world around I'm passing through
I feel all the things I see in a way belong to me
and every day I'm given something new.

and when I get doubts
Just turn the music loud
and again I'm happy and I know
what it is all about
Yeah, the road is my home and the music the place where I belong
Yeah, the road is my home & the music the place where I belong
and if I think I can't go on I start singing a new song for a living
Yeah, the road is my home & the music the place where I belong

12. Thoughts Reading The News
by Corny Held  
3:16 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals
Klaus Auster: drums
Hubert Kycinski: bass
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
lyrics You know what I read in Time Magazine
I read about wars where I'd never been
I read a respectable way was thought to be
to respond to an offence militarily

Thoughts reading the news

I read that positions
of power in conflicts
were supposed to be
the only solutions

I read about armor and fire and blood
about orphans crying and people dying
I read about euphoria, passion, and hate,
canon fodder, war's said to be great

Thoughts reading the news

And I looked at the pictures,
drowning in ruins
pieces of dead bodies
smoke in the air

You know what I saw
in Time Magazine
I saw hints of hell,
and it worked, as I've seen

I looked at the pictures of soldiers in arms
in the shadow of their helmets their eyes do glance
they don't seem to triumph or like what they've done
they don't seem to think it's great that they won

they look grim and stubborn and they cannot smile
they cannot be happy and they dare not die
