1. The Gnomon

1. The Gnomon

I cast a shadow. Through the gradual day
Never at rest it secretly steals on;
As must the soul pursue its earthly way
And then no night be gone.

But Oh, demoniac listeners in the grove,
Think not mere Time I now am telling of.
No. But of light, life, joy, and awe, and love:
I obey the heavenly Sun.

(Walter De La Mare 1945)

6. Love Will shine Like Gold
  1. Love Will shine Like Gold


Just because you are mine
Time no longer exists,
You are so special
Bringing joy into my lonely life.

Just because you are near
The sky above is so clear,
When I was helpless
You gave shelter to my broken heart,
We shared a dream together from the start.

You bring the passion, into my little world
Remove all boarders - set me free,
Our love will shine like gold!

Just to feel you are near,
All my fears disappear,
You are so special,
You shape the future; help me to believe,
That I can win that I am no more a thief.

You bring the passion, into my little world
Remove all boarders - set me free,
Our love will shine like gold!

9. Wonderworld
  1. Wonderworld


Those paintings made of ghosts
With visions from the past,
You can feel them so clear.
We took so many colours
And sang them for the heart,
Together on the icy road
We`re keep moving from the start.

For every place there is a colour,
And each emotion owns a voice,
We both know there is only one choice...

Hopes and dreams,
Like sunlit beams on coloured glass
In your kaleidoscope,  Oh and
The door you chose,
And the road you go from the start,
Leads to WONDERWORLD!

You always be young and free,
No sugar in your cup of tee -
It's your own choice.
This you have learned from a far ,
It is just a Childs life through different eyes,
You know who you are
(You know who you are)

Hopes and dreams,
Like sunlit beams on coloured glass
In your kaleidoscope,  Oh and
The door you chose
And the road you go from the start,
Leads to WONDERWORLD!

For every place there is a colour,
And each emotion owns a voice,
We both know there is but one choice.
(We both know there is but one choice)

In this place of light and shades,
Sooner or later the anger will fade,
Neither winners nor losers, no place for hate,
When we reach the end
I know, you`ll take my hand, my friend...

So! Where is this golden boy?
With eyes so bright and heart full of joy.

Who knows - what love really means today,
Who can see a red heart from grey?
Night from a day,
Breeze from the Storm,
Magic flame from a splash,
Truth and the lie - which moment do we next play?

Once we are used to playing adult games,
No one’s concerned if you live life in vain.
You can take!
Or you can break it!
We can choose another way to go.
You can choose it!
Or you can loose it!
It’s really worth fighting for!

Now is the time for another superstition,
Plugged in and used to this mankind ambition.

And the big EGO with its changing faces,
Hmmm… But what is our role
In this rat circle races?
And You know...
And I know.....
What is hidden in the heart of each desperate man...

Once we are used to playing adult games,
No one’s concerned if you live life in vain.
You can take!
Or you can break it!
We can choose another way to go.
You can choose it!
Or you can loose it!
It’s really worth fighting for!

And the director switched off the lights,
It’s time to create a new scene.
So much is lost and left unseen,
Was it - YOUR LIFE OR A DREAM?

I guess i know why
I found heaven in my stereo,
Rock and Roll is my seventh sky,
Tonight we’ll fly high and low.
We will dine with the cosmic king
On the right hand of his throne,
We will build the stairs to another world,
Where you’re no more alone...

Finally she opened her eyes,
Cool wind touched her face,
With a new beginning time to rise,
She’s finally escaped from that maze.

Oh, My Darling, won’t you have another beer,
Or would you like to dance?
Lets switch off all revolutions in our minds,
Yeh! And dive into the chasm of romance.

Oh, Lord, we made this mindcrime!
Oh, Lord, we fought against this time!
But no one wins, within those walls,
Seeking white cross our signpost,
Somewhere between...
Life and Dream!

We are lost
Somewhere between
Life and Dream!
Somewhere between
Moon and Sun!
Flesh and Gun!
We are lost
Somewhere between
Rain and Sunbeam!
Somewhere between
Sunflower and the sky!

Truth and the Lie.

Roll the bones, while the fire is burning,
Choose your own way, while the wheel is turning!

You can choose Yourself!
You can choose Yourself!
You can choose Yourself!
You can choose Yourself!
You can choose Yourself!
You can choose Yourself!

Roll the bones, while the fire is burning,
Choose your own way, while the wheel is turning!
The wheel is turning!

I had a dream when I was young
- To be much closer to the SUN!

TO SEEK!.....TO LEARN!
TO LIVE!........TO BURN!
You can choose yourself!
You can choose yourself!
TO SEEK!.....TO LEARN!
TO LIVE!......TO BURN!
You can choose yourself!
You can choose yourself!

3. Sleepwalker
  1. Sleepwalker


Old legends the silent prayer
Master of illusion build the stairs
To another world.
Sleepwalker touch the sky
Holly truth and the lie
Are just the cards she plays.

Night visions in her mind
Mooncats on the roof
Watch her milky shade.
Turns around - off the ground
Off the roof and off the town
Back to the dream she had.

She will fly to the moon
She will see the great mysteries of the universe,
Witness the mighty gods of Babylon
Warming her with the rivers that burn.

She will to fly to the moon (She will fly to the moon)
And will cross all the magic circles of the universe
She will bring day alive

 to a desperate child
The story that never ends.

He's standing here all alone in the rain -
Growing up - more of the same
In working rooms he spent each day
Oh, so tired, but no one to blame.
He's child of city and the heat
His heart goes faster with the beat
The more he tried to avoid defeat
The more he sinks in the sand.

He knows the score, he is player number one,
But why it seems that no one sees it at all.
Decoration of a TV show and he is part of it,
Lurking in the shadow, but always in the hot seat.
He climbs so high, always in time
But never reaches the bottom line.
Whilst laughing fading in the rain
He feels nothing but the pain.

He was drowning early every morning,
He was super king only for a moment,
Like a shooting gun, only for a moment
He was number one,
One crazy bullet before it's done!

He keeps drowning early every morning,
Then a super king only for a moment,
Like a shooting gun, only for that moment
He's still number one,
One crazy bullet and then it's done!

Old legends the silent prayer
Master of illusion build the stairs
To another world.
Sleepwalker touch the sky
Holly truth and the lie....

She step in to the mirror
She has all the keys
To another life.
One step - the door is open
One look and line is broken
She's out of sight.

She will to fly to the moon (She will fly to the moon)
And will cross all the magic circles of the universe
She will bring day alive to a desperate child
The story that never ends.

Mooncats in the corners
She loves heavy water,
Sing song in her honour
She keeps her window open.
Moonchild walks around,
Within her hands silver coins,
She wears black and white,
Moon Princess afraid of light.

She is off the ground now,
We will meet again somehow.
Within the dream, yes

Sooner or later, sun will rise,
Back home while mirrors are open.
I see cats now chasing a mouse,
Once was a secret now it's broken

She is off the ground now,
We will meet again somehow.
Yes...

Angels fly so high to protect our dream,
I always be with you, we are the sun and moon!
(2 times)

7. Sunchild
  1. Sunchild


On the road again
Squares and market rush
Busy streets
We are so far away now, yeh -yeh!
All that political stuff -
Barking of those hungry dogs
Now it’s gone,
For a minute or two, when I’m with you.
We will come through,
Only tohether!
And you have nothing to hide,
I get to feel so high!
We are true keepers of the magic flame!

Where sunflowers reach for the sky
We'll dance,
We'll sing of the dawn of the universe,
We are the children of nature and the sun!
As one,
LIKE SUN!
As one,
No matter how, no matter why,
As youngsters now we touch the sky!
Way into the fields the river flows
Deep in my heart I know!
I had a dream when I was young -
That I would be much closer to the sun!
TO SEEK - TO LEARN!
TO LIVE - TO BURN!
And remain that child with an open heart!

I can still recall so clear
My father’s hands and mother’s eyes,
Bright days without end,
Long Journeys to our Promised Land,
Fresh apples and blue cartoons
An old piano and some simple tunes,
The beauty taste of cheap cakes after school
Only a child you cannot fool!

With each summer came new songs,
And I sang them to the world.
The winter cold brought magic in the air,
New years eve with the snow in my hair!
I remember now
I still can feel,
The first morning kiss,
It’s so-so real!

Where sunflowers reach for the sky
We'll dance,
We'll sing of the dawn of the universe,
We are the children of nature and the sun!
As one,
LIKE SUN!
As one,
No matter how, no matter why,
As youngsters now we touch the sky! yeh - yeh!
Far in the hills the forest grows
Deep in my heart I know,
I had a dream when I was young -
That I would be much closer to the sun!
TO SEEK - TO LEARN!
TO LIVE - TO BURN!
And remain that child with an open heart!

Silver shades on the kitchen floor:
"Do you want some milk? Would you like some more..."
And the candle lights, like in a fairytale,
During this night we were free - we were happy
When we stood on the balcony,
And the music that we heard,
Was like our destiny.
I looked into your eyes,
I can remember now that night,
Together with open hearts
Brightly burned the light!

4. The Prayer of the Broken Heart
  1. The Prayer of the Broken Heart


Maybe we are different,
But we are all mad,
Walking the road into the darkest night,
Saving the last that we have

Maybe we’ll reach it tomorrow,
And together we'll share our way.

Welcome to the home of the beggars.
Switch off your desert sun,
Here all like the shadows,
Here the story has begun.
The Prayer of the broken heart
Is written on the bottle from the beer.
It’s all so similar to you,
It’s all so similar to me.

Maybe we'll both rise tomorrow
And together we’ll share our way.
Thru the veil of greed and sorrow
We will start a brand new day!

Maybe we'll rise tomorrow
And together we’ll share our way.
Thru the veil of greed and sorrow
We will start a brand new day!

8. Midnight Train
  1. Midnight Train


All these memories are so clear
Yeh, we were young - we had no fear,
Trying to shelter from the rain,
We crossed the time on a midnight train.
And the distant lights of the lonely station ahead,
On the misty shore someone’s broken boat - so sad

Don’t be afraid to loose
Don't be afraid to give
All rivers meet their sea,
All stars will fall,
While the wind blows

It seemed that life would last forever
And days like a puzzle, never ending game.
The tide is gone - I’m out of water,
Where is the place, which we call home?

The midnight train -
Is never-never late,
The midnight game -
The whole picture you'll never see.
The midnight train
On the road again,
And no one knows where it goes.

And the distant lights - lonely stations ahead,
On the misty shores someone’s broken boat - so sad

Don’t be afraid to loose
Don't be afraid to give
All rivers meet their sea,
All stars will fall,
While the wind blows.....
While the wind blows.....
While the wind blows.....
While the wind blows.....
