1. Say No by Corny Held  
5:41 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums

lyrics The world is cold outside
Go light a fire
The days are short and dark
burn your desire

How can you grab it
the spiralling of time
and freedom's just a statue
without soul, but it looks fine

So it's time to worry
what matters anyway
time to hurry
and save the world another day

it's time to hold
to decide who's friend or foe
and find a way against the tide
it's time now to say no
just say no
there are times, you know,
when you just got to say
no
say no

Make sure you have a home
when safety leaves
abundance vanishing
no birds, no bees, no trees

What can you cling to
what hope is there to seize
when love becomes a sacrifice
to please the God of greed

So it's time to worry
what matters anyway
time to hurry
and save the world another day

The eyes of vanity
Behind facades they glow
The scorn for life and peace
is flooding all the roads

in a sea of violence
it's good to own a boat
And wealth is but a faith
in bubbles that explode

but you can say no
Say no

Say no to hatred - no to greed
No exploitation - no vanity
No contempt - no agression
no malice - no hypocrisy

no violence - no indifference
no arrogance or ruthlessness or force
no evil - no betrayal
no destruction - no locked doors
Say no

2. Fall by Corny Held  
4:22 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics It's fall - waiting for winter
Storms are sweeping away the relics of summer
The leaves are dancing when they die
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

It's fall - nights are cold
There should be some body to warm me up
Rain on the blanket where I lie
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

It's fall - & I shiver
But the colors are warm, trying to cheat me
The leaves look pleasant, they can't cry
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

It's fall - watching the rain
there's mud on the ground, sun gleams through mist
Dream by the fire, warm & dry
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

3. People by Corny Held  
4:46 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, flute, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Joe opened his hands and he saw his life
It was running down his fingers
like water
like ice-cream
like champaign
It was running down his hands
towards the day when it ends

Mae kept her eyes closed and imagined the nights
they were cruising through her brain
like pain
like lightning
like horses
they were cruising through her brain
to the point they come again

People - faking fading faces
People - facing fading fates

Jill went through the rain and she heard the world
It was floating through her body
like coffee
like marbles
like fear
It was floating through her veins
and she sensed what she could hear

Jack wasn't at home when he smelled the light
It was steaming roundhis eyes
like vapour
like laughter
like air
It was steaming round his nose
whirling smoke in overdose

People - faking fading faces
People - facing fading fates

Buzz threw out his watch and he felt the time
It was dripping on his feet
like fuel
like blood
like mold
It was dripping on his feet
faking what we need

4. Again by Corny Held  
6:28 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Feel a whisper in the sky
Hear the wild winds fly
See the mighty clouds cry
and time passing by

Feel the torrent in your mind
Hear the voice deep inside
See the memories far behind
and time passing by

And it's time to go on now
time to leave
Life it ain't meant for staying
it ain't made to have peace
it is time to go on now
time to flee
time to go anywhere again
time to go anywhere and then -
after a while

Feel a whisper in the sky
Hear zthe wild winds fly
See the mighty clouds cry
and time passing by

It is time to drop out now
time again to move
time to get soaked
life it just ain't waterproof
time to get started
time for something new
time to do anything new

And it's time to go on now
time to leave
Life it ain't meant for staying
it ain't made to have peace
it is time to go on now
time to flee
time to go anywhere again
time to go anywhere and then -
after a while

Feel a whisper in your mind
Hear the wild winds cry
See the memories unwind
and time passing by
time passing by

5. Nightfall by Corny Held  
4:14 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, keyboards, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Standing at the window I can see the world
carried inside on a moonbeam
Carried inside by the stars

Thousands of little sparkling lights
like rubies and diamond bracelets
like ruby & diamond rings

The world is a ball of crystal
The world is a ball of glass

The world is a ball of crystal
Showing invisible sights
The world is a ball of crystal
Magic of pulsing lights

The world is a crystal ball
at nightfall

6. If You Were by Corny Held  
3:59 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar
lyrics Would you like to be a color,
Which one would you be?
Would it be dark and mysterios
Like a lake in the night
Or an ocean, feral and deep?
Would it be bright and sparkling
Like virgin snow in dawn,
Or in the sunlight the sea?
Would it be jarring and motley
Like a paradise bird
Or wild flowers dancing with glee?

Would you like to be a sound,
Which one would it
Would it be soft and soothing
Like in summer the sea
Or like thunder, ferocious and free?
Would it be music
Mild, mellow, and sweet
Or heavy and thrilling the beat?
Would it be nature or art
Like a song in the forest
Or even a great master's symphony?

You got your choice
Its all up to you
You got the power
To decide
- What you are
What you want, what you do.
Think it over, and then
Pick the right

If you were what you are
Would it be what youd like?
Would it match your ideas
Like a groom and a bride
And color the picture all right?
Would it meet what you need
Like a sound be in tune
And harmonize with your view?
Or would it just be phoney,
fake and mere faade,
Or really truly be you

7. Full Moon by Corny Held  
3:30 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Riding down the road with the full moon right in front
Seems to be so close, there is nothing more I want
Riding down the road at night with the city lights all burning
and I feel terrific and I feel I'm living and I feel the world is turning

Silence sometimes says a lot more than just a word
telling open secrets, they're easy to be heard
Riding doen the road at night with a new desire burning
And I find what's hidden and I find new riddles and I'm always learning

With the lights and the sounds low
Perception beginning to grow
details and shades within sight
Everything turns out right


I don't feel alone, there are people on the way
they need room for restlessness 'cause they don't want to stay
Riding down the raos at night and in my heart a burning
Moving along getting further on, I am driven by yearning

Settling things by compromise can't satisfy my needs
there are roads to travel on where no discussion leads
Riding down on one of these with the glow of freedom burning
And I know no guide and I know I'm right and I know what I'm discerning

What have you got that Iack
I'm able to turn my back
I ain't got what I don't need
happiness lies in the street


Riding down the road with the full moon right in front
Seems to be so close, there is nothing more I want
Riding down the road at night with the city lights all burning
And I feel terrific and I feel I'm living and I feel the world is turning

8. Burn (Bandversion) by Corny Held  
4:53 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, acoustic guitar, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
lyrics Life is a spark in a blazing fire
fuelled by time and desire
Whirled about by winds of fate
bound to vanish in the shade

Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn

Life is a symphony, a song
you're but a single note, not long.
Give it respect to make it strong,
it is fragile, don't play it wrong

Life will make you learn
And love will make you yearn

Life is a fantastillion scenes
an endless play of facts and dreams
Time has donated you a part
it may be tiny, but it's yours, so play it smart

Life once took what I had owned
Then it left me standing there alone
So what is yours what is home
What's the deal if you go

Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn
Life will make you learn
And love will make you yearn

Life can show you things
worth more than gold or diamond rings
Life needs trust, it wants truth
And it wants to be friends with you

Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn
Life will make you learn
And love will make you yearn
Life won't do what you want
But it's all right, you'll get along
Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn .....

9. Stoned On Your Presence by Corny Held  
4:20 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Some folks need coffee in the morning to wake up
Some hide their fears under make-up
Some can stop thinking just because they lost hope
Some can't feel hi without some kind of dope

But I can be...
.....stoned on your presence, don't need anything more
I am stoned on your presence, like so often before
I am stoned on your presence, every day, every night
& when you are near everything seems all right

Stoned on your presence, I'm so high when you're near
Stoned on your presence, I forget what I fear
& it's easy -
easy to find what I'm searching.

Last night I had a dream before I woke up
I was with you before we broke up
& I felt so good when I was with you
& I'm just tired of being lonely & blue

I want to be...
.....stoned on your presence, don't need anything more
I am stoned on your presence, like so often before
I am stoned on your presence, every day, every night
& when you are near everything seems all right

Stoned on your presence, I'm so high when you're near
Stoned on your presence, I forget what I fear
& it's easy -
easy to find what I'm searching.

When I am with you I just hate time
when noone wants you you can always be mine
when we make love I just forget what's around
I feel I'm drifting away & I don't really care if I might drown

'Cause I am...
.....stoned on your presence, don't need anything more
I am stoned on your presence, like so often before
I am stoned on your presence, every day, every night
& when you are near everything seems all right

Stoned on your presence, I'm so high when you're near
Stoned on your presence, I forget what I fear
& it's easy -easy to find what I'm searching.

10. Remote Control by Corny Held  
2:32 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics People I watch in a busy street
They are all walking in some kind of sleep
Down by the river a band does play
But they cannot hear it, spellbound on their way

What if they woke up, what if they try
What if they live before they die
What if they find out, what if they see
there's nothing left for them to be -
or feel –

Hypnotized scene - people drawn downstream
An artist is painting what they seem to mean
Whenever he tries the colors turn to haze
& there is a hole where there should be a face

life can be easy, don't hesitate
it tells you to run, and you run
puppets on strings they operate
Serving the powers they hate till it's too late

What if they wake up, what if they try
What if they live before they die
What if they find out, what if they see
There's nothing left for them to be
What if they notice they missed their chance
Wasting their lives away in trance
What if they think of what they have sold
Feel kind of hungry, they can't live on gold

Why don't they wake up, why don't they try
Why can't they live before they die
Don't they remember what they can do
Seems it ain't true, it just cannot be true.

11. Far Away by Corny Held  
4:31 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar
lyrics There's a light in the distance
not easy to see
faint, but yet sparkling
trying to shine on me

But I'm still wondering
how to get by
There ain't no way to tread
and I got no wings to fly


Who knows how to get there
who knows the way
Who can travel on time
and jump over days

And is there a chance
to make it anyway
It might just be a promise
it's too far away


There's a soul in the distance
not easy to find
hidden but alive
trying to touch my mind

But I'm still wondering
how to make my light shine
I sense someone's somewhere
who should have been mine

12. How Strong by Corny Held  
4:32 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics How strong is your love, babe
It seems to fade away
How strong is your love, babe
How long will it stay
How strong is your love, babe
when you feel blue
How strong is your love, babe
How strong are you

Love is fragile
love can die
it can be anything
and it be a lie

How big is your love, babe
will it ever grow high
How big is your love, babe
can it cry, can it fly
Would you miss me somehow
if I ever said goodbye
How big is your love, babe
is it something you can still deny
How big is your love, babe
is it always worth a new try

Love is fragile
love can die
it can do anything
and it won't ask why

How deep is your love, babe
will it stand through the rain
How deep is your love, babe
will it always remain
When you're old and weary
will it still be the same
How deep is your love, babe
can it touch my heart again

Love is fragile
love can die
You got to keep it going
at least you try

Thanks for all your treasures
Thanks for all the pleasure
Thanks for all …
