Lyrics:

1 DELTA HOURS

Goldie fills a chair

he rubs the belly fat

another can of beer

taste that raunchy cigarette

he always knows a joke

sometimes even two

he smiles when we laugh loud

he guards the plans we drew

 

always good distraction

nurse a chain reaction

knees upon the floor

open every door

saved by mind protection

 

Goldie is helping out

holding cases high

clutching into overdrive

as the babes go passing by

no worries spoil the mind

following his ..eh..nose

handy randy’s on the road

where ever the journey goes

 

always good distraction

nurse a chain reaction

feet on the floor

open every door

saved by mind protection

 

hey hooter alert (NO !)

oops batteries are empty (you don’t say !)

put that stick down, release that frown

and get back, get back, get back (wring that neck)

 

sometimes is detention

beyond one’s comprehension

after the delta hours

you watch the dying flowers

save me mind protection

always good distraction

nurse a chain reaction

feet off the floor

open every door

saved by soul protection

 

 

2 CHANGE THE WORLD

 

do you think we can change the world ?……

 

hey I’m dreaming out loud

to many sorrow I see

am I alone in the crowd

there’s too many aching I feel

there has to be another way

will we be able to find it one day

 

do you think we can change the world

make it into a better place

do you think we can change the world

until happiness is written all over the face of the earth

 

so now I’m wandering around

between the acid rain trees

am I alone in the crowd

another incurable disease

will we be able to twist our fate

better hurry before it’s too late

 

do you think we can change the world

make it into a better place

do you think we can change the world

maybe unite the human race

do you think we can change the world

until happiness is written all over the face of the earth

 

so we think that we are God

He creates and we destroy

we think we rule the earth

drifting away from joy

only when we’re united

we will survive the war

will this dream inside of me

ever become reality

will this dream inside

ever become reality

 

do you think we can change the world

make it into a better place

do you think we can change the world

maybe unite the human race

do you think we can change the world

until happiness is written all over the face of the earth

 

do you think we can change the world

4 INTO THE LION’S DEN

hell has frozen over

that day you said goodbye

baby you’re so damn hot

the way you wink your eye

you won’t be overrated

no one compares to you

the question in my mind

is how do I get through

 

into the lion’s den, with a full moon fever

crawling on my knees I spy on you

into the lion’s den, like Bagdad’s thief

I can’t help but wish that you would want me too

 

heaven must have cried

the day you went downstairs

the light has slowly died

by lack of your blond hair

adrenalin is pumping

I can’t sleep at night

I’d better stop right now

the news is getting tight

 

into the lion’s den, with a full moon fever

crawling on my knees I spy on you

into the lion’s den, like Bagdad’s thief

like the snake was a sinner I still want you

 

here I am

desperately in love

but will you reach out your hand, yeah

here I stand

shaking all over

please say something, I’m at your command

 

(…into the lion’s den….grrr

oh sorry, did I interrupt ? may I scratch your back ?

love your hair…how ’bout a drink huh?

oh, you naughty pussy……..cat!)

 

into the lion’s den, with a full moon fever

crawling on my knees I spy on you

into the lion’s den, like Bagdad’s thief

I can’t help but wish that you would want me too

into the lion’s den, with a full moon fever

crawling on my knees I spy on you

into the lion’s den, like Bagdad’s thief

like the snake was a sinner I still want you

 

please say something

 

 

5 RAIN IN MAY

here I am

drawing sketches and memories

time goes by

changing who I used to be

it’s cold and I hang my head low

it’s cold I don’t know where to go

 

when it rains

I remember your smile

your vivid eyes

your caring heart

oh how I want to hold you again

 

forgot the words

I learned by heart

I remain in silence

and take the road to nowhere

so cold my heart beats so slow

so cold my heart I need to know

 

here I am

fighting this feeling of being alone

the darkness gets hold

some never grow old

and I wonder

is this the end of the show

 

when it rains

I remember your smile

your vivid eyes

your caring heart

oh how I want to hold you again

 

someday we will be together

I let my heart shout

 

I turn out the light

I fade into night

in my heart I know

I miss you

 

 

6 EYEWITNESS

this must be some joke

I saw myself on the evening news

wanted for murder

no this just can’t be true

someone’s made an awful mistake

can I pull myself through

 

say it ain’t so

 

it’s so impossible

I don’t know the place or the face

the bullet or the gun

but still it’s me they chase

someone’s made a deadly mistake

how can I win this race

 

be my eyewitness

it wasn’t meant to be like this

please won’t you testify

be the angel at my side

 

say it ain’t so

 

baby help me please, tell them what they’ve done

we were together that night, dreaming of the sun

we made love, don’t you remember

end this nightmare before I enter

I don’t wanna die innocent and young

holding you tight, dreaming of the sun

 

dreaming of the sun

 

be my eyewitness

it wasn’t meant to be like this

please won’t you testify

be the angel at my side

 

say it ain’t so

that’s me on the evening news

wanted for murder

no! this just can’t be true

no one left to help me survive

can I push myself through

 

be my eyewitness

it wasn’t meant to be like this

please won’t you testify

be the angel at my side

be my eyewitness

I didn’t mean it to be like this

why don’t you testify

you’re the angel at my side

8 A SILENT CRY

what does it take to sing a silent cry?

 

it’s quite a great mind feeder

life is what you make it

though it seems at times

everyone’s against you

 

some days it feels like

everything’s going wrong

life and how to survive it

that’s the message in this song

 

sometimes you think that

all is upside down

in the morning you wish

for your dreams to come true

and turn it all around

 

what does it take – to walk on water

what does it take – to talk to the sky

what does it take – to bring in the mountain

what does it take – to sing a silent cry

 

sometimes you might think that

all is upside down

in the morning you wish

for your dreams to come true

and turn it all around

 

what does it take – to walk on water

what does it take – to talk to the sky

what does it take – to bring in the mountain

what does it take – to sing a silent cry

 

I know it’s tough

to find the strength to keep it going

I know it’s rough

to find the way to smooth things out

when the walls crumble down

you’ve got to build a safer home

try to turn your life around

cause you know you’re not alone

oh baby, you know you’re not alone

oh baby got to build a safer home

 

what does it take – to walk on water

what does it take – to talk to the sky

what does it take – to bring in the mountain

what does it take – to sing a silent cry

 

 

9 AUTUMN SKY

here in the autumn sky

seduction is the key

fake news rules

turning us into fools

we are colour blind

we are deaf and dumb

so irresponsible

never thinking of what we’ve done

 

here in the autumn sky
adrenaline’s flying high

when the shadows move

dark lords seek their groove

here in the autumn sky

distraction is the key

only when you go dark

you finally start to see

 

it’s a mystery

why we fail to see

held in captivity

but born to be free

 

here in the autumn sky

a phenomenon is rising high

a bundle of energy

bringing change for you and me

we are colour blind

we are deaf and dumb

unrecognisable

or are we just plain numb

 

it’s a mystery

why we fail to see

held in captivity

but born to be free

it’s a mystery

how we let it be

ruled by mediocrity

but born to be free

 

fake news rules

turning us into fools

 

it’s a mystery

why we fail to see

held in captivity

but born to be free

it’s a mystery

how we let it be

ruled by mediocrity

but born to be free

 

 

10 TRADING PLACES

seems like something has changed

but not for the better

feels like someone strange

to make things sadder

but I don’t care at all

 

seems like something new

but not for long

but only for the few

this feels so wrong

but I don’t care at all

 

unexplained are mysteries

lines from shouting faces

unexplained are mysteries

thoughts from trading places

 

feels like something has changed

flowing into danger

it feels somehow strange

to sense the anger

but I don’t care at all

 

some places are burning

between the valleys of the rock

world keeps on turning

taking every shock

but I don’t care at all no

I don’t care at all

 

unexplained are mysteries

lines from shouting faces

unexplained are mysteries

thoughts from trading places

unexplained are casualties

the premonition of life

unexplained are words believed

to cut you like a knife

 

but who cares?

 

11 STORM IN NOVEMBER

storm in November

I always laughed about it

howling wind in the chimney

the ticking of the rain

the cracking of the stairs

I smiled as I went to bed

 

steamin’ up some heat

in the elevator of dreams

macho girl in leather

the dark side of love it seems

 

storm in November

I never cried about it

this shivering feeling

you wanna hold on to

you gotta grab it tight

cause you got nothing to lose

 

picking up the beat

in a field of broken dreams

moving in the shadows

or is it make believe

 

don’t care about the pouring rain

just keep me there in your heart

I only fear a love in vain

can tear this shelter apart

 

storm in November

it means nothing to me

you lose your umbrella

the waving of the trees

watch the hats go by

in the wink of an eye

 

fallen to your knees

in a field of broken dreams

moving through the shadows

or is it make believe

 

at this landmark up high

I see a turning point

I feel the soft words whispered

as emotions passing by

on the wings of a breeze

washes my fears away

take my honest hand

and never say goodbye

 

I don’t care about the pouring rain

just keep me there in your heart

I only fear a love in vain

can tear this shelter apart
