1. Walls
by Corny Held  
4:06 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums

lyrics Everybody's building walls everywhere
round themselves and the world and nobody cares
Nobody's looking out left or right
their blinders straighten their power of sight
Leaders and dreamers, societies and priests
have buried respect to satisfy their own needs


You are building walls around yourselves in your lives
and it makes you feel safer, it can make you feel all right
But you forgot the windows, you just cannot look outside
Walls around your loneliness for a place to hide

Built yourself a fortress for the values you ain't got
Store them in a cellar where they're getting damp and rot
Here or there a loophole where you fire out your grief
Castles without windows, everybody out of reach

You can't help vibrations penetrate the mightiest walls
Like the waves of echoes can tear down imprisoning halls
You can feel it coming, it's no threat, but you are scared
You don't want to be relieved, it'll be too much to dare.

2. Foggy Nights
by Corny Held  
5:42 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Foggy's the night
Cool the air
Eerie the light
there's noone to care

November is leaving
all trees are bare
all ghosts of winter
are already there


The creatures of frost
don't want to do harm
they bring rest and renewal
cold peace and white charm

they're just tools of time
now passing by slow
to show all things can come
and all things must go


They shadowless loom
and swirl in the gloom
They whisper of doom
in vein gloams of the moon

Muffled all noise
shrouded the sight
Sense what they sigh
trust in lore, it's all right


Winter is coming
carcassed the ease
surreal apparitions
meet for their feast

The dogs in their kennels
try to bite and they bark
but all they can nab
is the fog of the dark

3. Leaving
by Corny Held  
3:13 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass
Axel Wagner: drums, percussion
lyrics I hear a voice out of nowhere
calls me to leave what I have got
There won't be safety nor light
There can't be peace in insight
but something is calling me

I might be missing your love
but I got to go on

I might be missing our trees
I might miss the breeze in rustling leaves
I might be missing the warmth
I might be missing a home
and maybe I'll even miss you

I might be missing your love
but I got to go on

Right now I'm missing much more -
moments when life is easy and time takes rest
I may be searchung in vain
It makes no sense when I stay
'cause I know I won't find it here

I might be missing your love
but I got to go on

4. I Want To Be Your Mobile Phone
by Corny Held  
3:56 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics So many times I've seen you playing with that phone
So many times I wasted waiting - all alone
What is it you are doing all the time
Play with me in the morning, play with me by night

I want to be your mobile phone - ring, ring
I want to be your telephone

So many times I've seen you looking at your mobile
You write and chat and post a selfie of your best smile
You never met those friends you have online
Look at me in the morning, look at me by night

So many times you clutch that phone like in a fever
And read fake news of which you are a true believer
We used to talk, did you forget that time
Talk to me in the morning, talk to me by night

5. Somebody Else\'s Girl
by Corny Held  
5:02 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics First she had thought it was a good night
And she was sort of happy And she felt all right
Then something happened to change her mood
The guy she was with, oh boy, he was cute
suddenly told her he weren' going to stay with her for too long a time
And she was hurt, falling out of her dream
Helplessness can be so strong when revealed

Why can't he say what she's trying to tell him
Why can't he say what she wants to believe
Why does it hurt so much, why is it evil
that she's somebody else's girl already

First he looked forward to seeing her that night
Untilshe came everything seemed all right
Then he remembered how she used to live
And he forgot how much she could give
All other times they had been tzogether without thinking of fear
He said she'd been hurting him And it still was all right
But disappointment can't be a good guide

Why can't he say what she's trying to tell him
Why can't he say what she wants to believe
Why does it hurt so much, why is it evil
that she's somebody else's girl already

Where are they going, going alone?
Misunderstandings to drive it all home
So many nights with hope in their hearts
stories need endings only after they start
Can you enjoy what is never destroyed 'cause it won't fit into time?
It'll be all right for him again
She'll meet him later And there's nothing to end

Why can't he say what she's trying to tell him
Why can't he say what she wants to believe
Why does it hurt so much, why is it evil
that she's somebody else's girl already

7. Nothing Really Matters
by Corny Held  
3:48 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, keyboard, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics When you start to think about the
things you cannot change
Soon you'll find out
nothing is strange
and
nothing really matters

so
Close your eyes, get organized and
don't look left or right
Why should you find
peace in insight
see:
nothing really matters

to you any more
What is it good for
Everyone is fighting
to be dying

Nothing matters in this world of
which you are a part
No-one gives a
damn 'bout your heart
'cause
nothing really matters

and
If it isn't you it's someone else and
it is true
There ain't no point
in feeling blue

nothing really matters

to the world no more
What is it good for
Everyone is fighting
to be dying

Nothing is worth:
crying - dying - sighing - buying -
complying - denying - trying -

8. Ghost Train
by Corny Held  
2:59 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, keyboard, effects
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Yeah, I wanna take a ride on the ghost train tonight
and get caught by the horror and get teased by the fright
So let's go to the fair, any time, I don't care
and just tell me where is the ghost train there?

Can be cheery when it's eerie, it is odd, or disgust
but an evil fascination, an addiction to mistrust.
vile monsters scream and moan and put their spells on everyone
they are wretched, sort of ridic, and their horror sort of fun

They want to
scare me
grab me
touch me
nab me
hold me but don't stab me

They try to
craze me
thrill me
bully me
unwill me
they chill me but don't kill me

Are keen to
paralyze
and shock me
cheat me
mock me
deplete me but don't block me

There's a door they don't know what it's for, I can go
they stay, and they vanish anyway when I'm away.
Yeah, I wanna take a ride on the ghost train tonight
and get turned on by glitzy gloom & defied by shallow spite

The world is a ghost train, life is a ride
deluding your brain, creating spooks by your side
It is mazy, it is gambling, irritating or surprise
But it's great, it's a challenge, it is matchless, take a ride.

Take a ride, take a ride, come along, take a ride
Take delight in a sprite or a warlock, take a ride

9. Partng Gift
by Corny Held  
4:13 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Why are you calling me, why do you call
There's nothing left to say, we said it all
Your time, it ain't mine no more, Can't you leave me alone
Anyway it was not my fault, but what's gone must be gone

Why do you give me flowers? They insult me today
Showing me that you never understood what I say.
Or did you not believe that I meant it this way?
Or did you you just not listen? Feel I was betrayed.

Parting gift as a payment to a stranger in pain
Cannot make up for passions, I know they were in vain
Realized how you saw me, it ain't easy to face
I was always outside your world, there's reprisal in grace

I tried to help you where I could
I tried to give you what I had
But you have never understood
What I was aiming at

I cannot help it if you leave
and I don't care about your grief
How come you never understood
Now I have gonr for good

10. Magic
by Corny Held  
3:42 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics I know there is magic in the sunrise
I see the magic in the skies
There can be magic in a morning
Magic in a new love in spring
And in the songs the cute birds sing
And you see:
I got a magic ring

I just got to ask it and desire
Set the frozen hearts on fire
There must be magic ways of yearning
Tell your wishes And turn a ring
And all the world, it may start burning
And you know:
I got a magic ring

You got magic in the air
You got magic everywhere
You got magic in your fantasy
And it's magic in the waves at sea

And in a moment can be magic
And in a whisper there's magic
And in a soft hand can be magic
And in sadness there is magic
In a memory there's magic

Magic

Magic powers streaming
And there is magic in everything
In case you got a magic ring
And you see:
I got a magic ring.

11. Don't Tell Me You Love Me
by Corny Held  
3:45 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, keyboard, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics I thought that I loved you
but I'm no longer sure
For love seems so cruel,
so ready to injure.
Don't want to tie up your freedom
for the fear I could lose you
That you might please my power
to own you, or use you.

You tell me you love flowers
and you pick them and put them in vases

Don't you know they must hate you
Cause they will have to die
Don't suppose that they like it
just because they can't cry
Sure they may look pretty
and might bloom for a day
But you've killed them forever
for love this way.

You tell me you love birds
and you catch them and keep them in cages

Don't you know now they must hate you
'cause they would like to fly
Don't suppose they're happy
just because they don't cry
And if they got a chance
to escape from their prison
they would leave you forever
and your love was the reason.

Now I'm terrified of thinking
that you might tell me next you love me -

So Don't tell me you love me
It'll scare me if you do

12. Voices
by Corny Held  
4:51 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, keyboards, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics White horses
Looking at me
They smile and they whisper
Where d'you want to be
Come on, we'll carry you
whereever that is
But how can I trust them
What might I miss

Just hear the voices
Voices for you,
hear what they're saying
And decide what you'll do

Black wizards
Looking at me
They smile and they whisper
Where d'you want to be
Come on, we'll show you
how to get there
it's luring to trust them
It's easy to dare

Just hear the voices
Voices for you,
hear what they're saying
And decide what you'll do

Looks like a chance,
What are the choices?
What lies ahead
If I follow these voices?

Is it friendly, a promise,
A prospect of peace
Or veiled mischief, or danger,
Doom, just deceit,

Delusion or wishful,
Or true fortunate fate?
I'll find out if I go now
Before it's too late.

I'll just know - when I go
Know when I go

Just hear the voices
Voices for you,
hear what they're saying
And decide what you'll do

13. One World
by Corny Held  
3:41 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics What happened to the spirit
When everybody wanted peace
What happened to the love
When it felt good to feel free

But:
we got one world for us all
it's only one world for us all

Who's singing "We shall overcome"?
Must Atlantis really sink?
We do without a little help from our friends
And we got folks that do not think?

But: we got one world for us all
it's only one world for us all

What ideals do you now offer
What haveyou got to believe
You might say that it takes more than love
or could it be your love is not enough
hate instead of self-esteem - & money,
honey, this world is scaring me

We got just one world for us all
it's only one world for us all

One world

14. Celebrate Life
by Corny Held  
3:15 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars
Axel Wagner: drums
Peter Hahn: bass
lyrics Watch the little birds when they fly around
Singing their songs high above the ground
They never worry what'll come the next day
And they don't care at all what others say

They are happy and just take five
and all they really have to do
is celebrate life

Celebrate life - every day
Celebrate life - every night
Celebrate life - on every way
all the time when time is present
it'll be all right
to celebrate life

Look at all the flowers in the summer breeze
nodding their heads to the dancing bees
they never worry if they might get picked
or eaten by a cow or maybe just kicked

they indulge in their time and just take five
and all they ever have to do
is celebrate life

So don't you worry all that precious time
about what you might lose and what you will find
What to eat or wear or do or how to make ends meet
trust in the world, it gives you what you need

So enjoy what what you got and just take five
And start right now, it's time
to celebrate life

15. Otherworld
by Corny Held  
3:20 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, bass, flute
Axel Wagner: drums, e-guitar
lyrics There's a place at the coast
Where the Wishes River flows
Through the forest of life
- well enchanted

And the tree of wisdom grows
amid the colored flowers of hope
and winged creatures sing desire
in its branches

And I'll ride the dragon
And you'll fly desire
And the magic boat takes you wherever

Find the dwelling of peace
boundless shelter and esteem
And destiny tells you the way there.


There the castle of freedom
Stands firm above the waves
Raging high in the storms
of emotion

Safely built on rocks of truth
it defies eternity
near the edge of the world
in Dream Ocean.

And I'll ride the dragon
And you'll fly desire
And we'll dive in the Bay Of All Secrets,

It gives home to your soul
There is life in things and stones
And whoever you want to can be with.

No place else is like this and no spirit

Wish the earth were alike or be near it
