1. It's Hard To Be A Fortune Teller Soloversion
by Corny Held  
3:54 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments

lyrics Down in the ocean is a little catfish
He used to be my best friend in a childish wish
Up in the sky there is a big fat bird
His wings cast shadows where no sound is heard
Far in the distance is a story book
casting spells oneveryone who doesn't look
On the sand is a castle with a king inside
andhe has forgotten how to kiss his bride

and I got runes in my bag and a crystal ball, you can ask me anything, I will predict it all
But it's up to you if it's coming true - it's your own decision what you're gonna do
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be decent in a world which is haunting me

Down in the alley is a sick old man
and he keeps his brain in a frying pan
Floating on the river is a paper boat
It's delivering wisdom to the ones who know
And on top of the mall the witches ride their brooms,
there ain't no more ups and downs and there ain't no doom
A young girl is dancing upon a star
and then she gets run over by a model car

I got runes in my bag and premonition inside and fear is on my shoulder and the light's too bright
I foresee what's gonna happen, but it's up to you, you can believe it ot not, what's true is always true
It's hard to be a fortune teller anyway, your world is haunting me, your value is decay

Merlin's grandson made satellite
which can light the whole world in all parts at night
and now the ravens sing it in their croaking voice:
you must look, you must work, you must, you've got no choice
The children can't write and they can't even speak
and they can only see when they're watching TV
They got a button on their back and a little key
and robots produce them in a factory

I still got runes in my bag and a crystal ball - my cards on the table trying to warn you all
and the nothing in the world is such an awful lot that you ain't really got a thing of those you think you got
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be decent in a world which is haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be friendly in your world world because it's haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - to be in a world which keeps on haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - your world is haunting me, yeah it keeps haunting me

2. You Won't Find What You Seek
by Corny Held  
4:45 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, e-guitar
Axel Wagner: perc.
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar
lyrics How come I wonder
where I am going
Feeling so homesick
when I got no home
Being with you, Babe
is a castle on sand
It has been drifting
there ain't no land

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams
How come I wonder
where I have been
Remembering places
I've never seen
Being with you, Babe
is a boat on the sea
floating through icebergs - it's hard to be free

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams

and when the sun pours light over me
I wish it was dark then, and see what'll be

and when the darkness wraps around me
I find it so cold then warm it should be

and when I'm with you now and you fill me with heat
I'm just longing for love you won't find what you seek

and if some day I'm coming across it by chance
I might want you to be there in that wonderland

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams

3. Running For Money Soloversion
by Corny Held  
4:01 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics I remember a merry-go-round
and a flying horse on it moves up and down
lights flicker colors all over the fair
You think you get on, but it's going nowhere
and then I remember the day it was gone
and I remember the day it stopped turning
Then I didn't know what was going on
and I see the flames and the wooden horse burning
and all the colors were smoke in the weeping air

and I started running, running for money
and I have been running, running for life
and I have been running, running for everything
and I have been running, only to find
All I ever needed was some love, Baby
All I ever wanted was some love, Baby
and now I think maybe, maybe I'll stay
I think maybe, maybe I'll stay
for a day


I remember the tunes full of joy
life in the hand of a child is a toy
Patterns on brocade wind over the land
and when life turns a fair, it all works, they pretend
and even the world must keep spinning, we learn
Moving in circles can be so amusing
Who is afraid of the day it'll burn
Feeling too dizzy can be so confusing
Just keep on running around to feel fine again

I had been running, running for money
and I have been running, running for life
and I have been running, running for everything
and I have been running, only to find
All I ever needed was some love, Baby
All I ever wanted was some love, Baby
and I have been coming along your way, Baby
and I have been coming a long, long way, Baby
and I have been running too long a way
and now I think maybe, maybe I'll stay
I think maybe, maybe I'll stay - for a day
or two - or three - or maybe forever
Maybe, maybe, maybe for eternity.

5. Addicted To You Soloversion
by Corny Held  
3:43 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Sitting in the shadow of an old willow tree - all alone
there upon a meadow thinking of you and me - where you've gone
You had said you're gonna meet me in the morning
Sitting in the shadow of an old willow tree -
there upon a meadow, all the world full of glee
Waiting for you, but I guess you are leaving me - all alone.

Birds do fly over mountains and seas
Clouds are white - they are free like the breeze
In the morning, world awaking, there is sunlight and shade
in the morning, I am waiting, cause I think we had a date

and I'm addicted to you, I just can't help it
I'm addicted to you, won't let you go
I'm addicted to you, although I hate it
I'm addicted to you, and I guess you know

Words do fly and meanings don't cease
Vows comply with our need to be pleased
In a promise, hope is rising, growing colors that won't fade
It's a ribbon, it's disguising, it can be an open gate
and I'm addicted to you...

Sitting in the shadow of the old willow tree - don't know why
Spirits got to get low, what you said seems to be - lies, just lies
Don't believe you want to treat me like you're doing
Sitting in the shadow of the old willow tree
Stand me up again, so that I no longer see
if I want to trust you, but I know I'm not free - and I'll try.

6. Lady Of The Fountain Soloversion
by Corny Held  
3:57 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics There's a lady in the fountain, with waterwhite hair
She's made out of water, she won't ever care

She's got one leg to dance on and a thousand arms
Her hips move around her, sparkling out her charms

When you think she is smiling, her body drowns in tears
and when she stops dancing she'll have to disappear

She's the lady of the fountain
Shakes her waterwide hair
Lady of the fountain
Will never have to care
The lady of the fountain
- dances with everyone
She's made out of water,
She'll never have fun
Lady of the fountain


She's fragile and wild, and her watersoul's cold
her power artificial - spite out of a hole

Feel the breeze that she sends you to show she's alive
Feel her damp curls caress you, and the dew they leave behind

On your skin when you hold her, she'll splash herself away
Celebrating her freedom - just watch the way she plays

She's the lady of the fountain
Shakes her waterwide hair
Lady of the fountain
Will never have to care
The lady of the fountain
- dances with everyone
She's made out of water,
She'll never have fun

7. Over
by Corny Held  
2:53 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar

lyrics Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again
Late in december you tried to tell me
you didn't like my lifestyle
All things are ending, don't you confuse me
my life ain't over, I'm feeling fine

Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again

Lasted a long time, years I will treasure
what'll come now I wonder
Ends are beginnings of a new pleasure
I'm looking out towards fun there

Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again
Our love is over, it'll come never again

I am not sad, I must accept what you say
Our time was good, and I'm grateful today
That is the way things are going some time
Felt it before that you're no longer mine
But I don't care because you don't own my heart
I will look forward to another new start

Cristmas is over, Christmas is never again
Our love is over, it'll come never again
Our love is over, you made it come to an end
Our love is over, your life is no longer mine
All things go over, they must go over in time

8. Restlessness Soloversion
by Corny Held  
3:46 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Time travels on on the wings of my thoughts
Into a land that I once used to dream of
It's scary to float in a fantasy boat
But time travelled on to the future that's gone

Time travels on, it has never been true
I feel I ride on a gale on the ocean
There's beauty and sand, dead birds on a strand
Waves eat a land which I don't understand

Time takes me on, it'll never calm down
Try not to care - try not to drown
So scary to be, scary to be free
premonition's no friend, and memories haunting me

How many times will I travel on
How many seasons more
How many seas will I have to sail
When will I find my shore

9. Lifetime
by Corny Held  
3:44 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics All those hours - feel when they are passing
precious moments - we cannot see them move
But they won't return
Time's running quietly
It won't come back
You cannot store it
in a sack

All those long days - we didn't see they won't last
Endless seasons - fading away so soon
and they won't return
Stop living tomorrow
You won't catch it today
It is always ahead of you
anyway

What are we always running after
What do we really want to find
It'll be too late after leaving
so many useless hours behind

Wasting our time away by searching
Looking for what we do not lack
This very moment will be over in a second
Then there's no way to get it back

Life is a million of these moments
and they're all you ever really own
Don't let impatience take them from you
Follow the road that leads you home.

What do you want - what do you really want
Time will not return

10. Lord Of All
by Corny Held  
3:22 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics There's fall outside and fall in me
and fall is on the windowpane
The storm's getting cold, the clouds look bold
the sun tries lighting life in vain

A little candle's burning tall
and flickers shadows upon the wall
No, life, I own no peace in fall
for love is lord of all


and often when our music plays
I feel the moon like spotlight shine
Reflecting the challenge of those days
when your life was a part of mine

I hear a whisper in the fire
the voice of wisdom is nice and calm
We had it all, despair and desire
and life is really lord of all

Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Never had a ruby or a diamond ring
But Baby, I can sing

Never had a pocket full of money on me
But Baby; I am free

Never saw a genie in a bottle of gin
But Baby, I can dream

Never been a winner, often missed a chance But Baby, I can dance

And I can fly, fly away

12. Death Of A Dream Soloversion
by Alruna  
3:55 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Well, the world ain't shattered,
but sure it ain't safe
All the winds are alert,
You just got to be brave
There are hate and suspicion
And maybe better ways
Is it faith or superstition
what it takes to be amazed?

One dream's killed,
but another was born,
and the devil a-dancin,
Gabriel blowing his horn
and the world keeps turning,
and the prophets don't care,
Which value is burning,
or if a man's bare.

All the fairies are hidden
in their flowers in spring
and if you ask Merlina
she won't tell you anything
all the drops in the ocean,
they are sad and they cry.
But the Lords of the darkness,
they enjoy their apple pie.

Your houses are high,
your falls are deep
your cars are fast,
but the bridges too steep
Good days tend to leave,
yet the beast is asleep
and the hope in the party
is powered by greed.

You try anything,
and you got luck.
You got everything,
and now you got stuck.
and the rails of your brain
don't lead far any more.
and your feelings are sold,
and your heart is a whore.

A room full of vigilance,
a stock full of fears,
and a little box of knowledge
and wisdom full of tears.
and the times aren't right
for paradise birds
each idea got his bride
and some got more than they deserve.

All the mermaids in the waves
they dive and they sink
the sirens stop singing
and the magic dragons shrink.
and the love and the promises
are laughing in the sky
and a little dog's howling
at the stars passing by.

13. Fake It (Soloversion)
by Corny Held  
3:21 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Reality is not for you
Dream on, your dream may then come true
and ask it what you are to do
when timelessness comes by

The addicts always got their aim
The priests have gods with lots of names
But limits cannot be the same
when freedom limits life

Your lady with her lifted face,
Her love is second-hand,
no longer knows what to ebrace
She wants a plastic man

It's speed you take for quality
and stress is your success
and gaude screams out convincingly
while silence rests in death

The blackberries, they shouldn't grow
thorns in your concrete house, I know
You loved them in your pudding though-
delicious, clean, and small

Words used to be demons' villages
But empty homes decay like privileges
and to fill just a shape with images
means life to ruined walls

Eternity has become short
It lasts a movie-scene
The universe was made to fit
upon a TV-screen

They kill someone, they fight for fun
and they conserve the bore
and everything's become a deal,
and happiness a whore.

14. My Way
by Corny Held  
2:44 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Don't be sad, don't you cry - go along your highway
If you leave, I won't sigh, - I'm gonna do it my way
Put a smile on my face - and go on forever
Bygone days are bygone haze - and there ain't never "never"
Joy, joy is a little coy, joy is kind of shy
Love, love is a little tough - but you won't hear me sigh

Don't believe you feel the heat - the fire getting older
There are ways to survive - even if it's colder
Just put on your fastest shoes - and a skin of leather
Sunny days are funny days - but we got stormy weather
Joy, joy is alittle toy, joy is kind of shy
Love, love is a little tough-but you won't hear me sigh

So:
put on your smile and your warm wintercoat
and go on all along your lonesome raod
and just leave what you hate before it's too late
and no matter what you feel like, you've got light load
Joy, joy is a little boy, joy is kind of shy
Love, love is a little tough - but you won't hear me sigh

Put your smile on and your coat - and go on forever
Easy load or heavy load - it won't be getting better
Don't need love, have power enough - roam along your highway
You're not strong, come along - but: I'm gonna do it my way.
I'm gonna do it my way

15. Day Dream Soloversion
by Corny Held  
4:16 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: Vocals, guitar, flute
Hans Schulz: backing 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

16. Just Another Girl Soloversion

Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Late last night I was feeling fine
Late last night I thiught you were going to be mine
I had been trying so hard not to get burned up in an hour
I wouldn't have believed it was for only one time

Early this morning - daylight already rolling round
Early this morning, you forgot what it all had been about
Early this morning, I realized the way you must have been thinking
and I felt so bad about it as soon as I went out

Early this morning, I realized I was doing wrong
Shouln't have stayed with you, but I hadn't been so strong
Now it is too late, I'm in trouble again
and you're not worth it, 'cause it didn't last long

I was for you just another girl
In just another night
I was for you just another girl
In just another night

17. Moonrise Soloversion
by Corny Held  
3:16 min.  
(English)

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.
