then i think again that i’m over the hill and far away from you and then it feels alright by day when i’m awake but not at night cause the sun is a spotlight and you’re just playing a role and the moon is just the small lamp of your backstage room and the one who creates my dreams the only one who knows me he may will say to me forget to love again suddenly i hear something knocking at my ear are you about to forget me? leave me alone are you about to forget me? leave
sit on my bench in the crowded city look at the busy people with pity they have no time to have a stand always running with their mobiles in their hands every day opens a new food line to shorten their lunch time they have no time to admire the nature economy just formed a working creature i‘m sitting on my bench all day relaxing taking time just my way i‘m not scared of any stress and think they all should do less the woman who sits next to me tells me her story – i have to agree she says that she comes here always alone cause her man works on – to the bone he has no time to take her out not even time to think about his company has to be bigger and faster one day she‘s sure there will be a disaster the trees, they do it alright never have any fi ght just standing there growing piece by piece yes they live in freedom – in freedom and peace
when i look into your eyes i’m sure the right is by my side i’ll never give you away you’ll be mine from today ‘till the day i die hey little girl you’re my shining star you don’t know how important you are i never had this lovely feeling before you’re the reason i am living for babe i hope you see what you are for me you’re the love of my life forever i hold you in my arms our love is magic your smile charms fi nally i’ve found what i’m looking for you’re my love and i am yours
Ten O'Clock 03:48
stop having fun cause it’s ten o’clock stop having fun cause it’s ten o’clock yes it’s ten o’clock – in the evening and at the same time young people having fun drunk from love and wine dance to become one and suddenly the music stops and there’s an ugly noise instead it’s the voice of two fat cops with guns but dumb like bread and they say stop having fun cause it’s ten o‘clock stop having fun cause it’s ten o‘clock yes it’s ten o‘clock – in the evening
The Advice 06:52
old man when is the point to become serious was that my last joint before diving into business old man they use to tell me that i shall think about how i expect to be with money or without i ask you cause you’re old and wise is it true what they say shall i follow their advice life means wasting time my boy that’s all that i have learned tomorrow will be yesterday there’s no reason to be all i know listen my boy it’s easy to get burned but if you’re wasting time my boy you’re free old man sometimes i fear that i will never find someone to be near someone to mate my mind can i miss the train or will it wait for me is it just a game where the rule is to be
the sky is dark the time has come people are yelling for peace and freedom in a world without democracy without love and without rights to get what belongs to you you have to fight the ruler in his castle preaching to his marionettes you have to kill the rebels before you go to bed but the ruler’s time has come and the regime‘s about to drown the threats become too loose and the rebels come to town the rebels come to town and the wind of change will blow the rebels come to town and injustice will go the palace is decaying an the throne is rotten and the rulers of today will soon be forgotten the ruler‘s obedient sheep begin to grind their teeth become more and more like wolves and revolution begins to breathe the ruler calls his soldiers but his soldiers won‘t arrive they once have fought for him now they fight for life the evil mighty ruler slowly becomes a clown he starts to run away because the rebels are in town
time has changed nothing‘s like before time has changed we cannot ignore time we wasted no one gives us back time we wasted we must make amends year for year i grew older saw the problems appear society seems to get colder where is the social gear as a child everything looked lovely the only worry was to tie my shoes i don‘t want to sound pessimistically but we have to change our rules to the baker of war and weapons you better don‘t mess with love don‘t underrate the working class people let fly the white dove imagine a brotherhood of man just like lennon said we are a new generation and must try to change the world time must change can‘t live like before time must change we cannot ignore time we’re saving nature gives us back time we’re saving we must not make slack love will change it
swimming in the sea of thousand drops of water but much much too light to dive with every single meter i push many aside will i be swimming ’till the end of my life then i hear a voice riding on the wind almost lost in space and i know who sent it out on the other side of time walking through the desert of thousand grains of sand but much much too light to leave a track the heat sucks out my energy and burns my mind there is no difference between the ground and my back then i see a hair riding on the wind almost fairly grey and i know who let it fall then i feel a breath riding on the wind almost fully chilled and i know who set it free on the other side of time
Let's Love 05:22
haven‘t you seen your brothers dying so take a look at the news they’re shooting and they’re torturing black, white, muslims and jews hey lets’ try it the other way the other way – let’s try it once with love hey let’s try it the other way the other way – let’s try it once with love let’s love let’s love ’till the end of love ‘till the end of – the day you’ll see it’s better it’s better if you try it with love you’ll see it’s better it’s better if you try it with love do you think it’s too far away do you think hollywood is nearer do you think it’s enough to just pray i can’t pray with bloody hands
Home 09:56
when i’m hungry and out and full of doubts don’t know anymore the man i was before when i’m only living for serving and giving when the curtain’s closing and i go on posing then i hear the sound of your voices and i know that i’m back back on the ground that you hold me ‘till i go you fill my heart with love like the angels from above make me solid like an oak stand with me under my yoke my home is there where your laughter is ringing you’re the ones that make me function the ones that make me singing when i knock at my skin is there anybody in can you hear me boy it’s me your toy when my mind is out there and i don’t know where calling me from far away and yesterday
