Track Name: Please Hold The Line!
PLEASE HOLD THE LINE!

this world is a large house
with many many rooms
to keep it clean we use
tolerance and brooms

this world is a grand tree
with many many leaves
sometimes they grow, sometimes they fall
and we take care of all

this world is ours, this world is mine
this world is unique, please hold the line!

this world is a vast ocean
with many many drops
a deep blue sea of emotion
where empathy never stops

this world is an iridescent bubble
with many many colours
destroying it brings trouble
with moist and soapy eyes...

this world is ours, this world is mine
this world is unique, please hold the line!

this world is a lovely place
and there’s enough for all
if no one lies and steals and slays
a paradise on call

this world is ours, this world is fine
this world is unique, please hold the line!
Track Name: Skin
SKIN

if I lose my rosy skin
I’ll wear a dress of bones
shaking, clacking, clattering
playful swinging tones

in the golden year of ’69
mountain lake divine
in the golden year of ’69
no sun cream, lots of wine

if I lose my rosy skin
skull protects from heat
a shelter without brain within
a bouncing boney beat

in the golden year of ’69
flower power hippie van
in the golden year of ’69
well done crispy tan

if I lose my rosy skin
something was amiss
but at least I’ll be so thin
stylish, without bliss

contemporary holidays
chloric swimming pools
lots of chemtrails, lots of cars
we’re a bunch of fools
skin grows old, tears of regret
insight of a few
and our skin will not forget
please think twice it’s true
Track Name: A Break
A BREAK

I took a few weeks off
a break can help sometimes
my mind is open to new things
just to feed my soul

it was on the night flight to Greece
with thunder and lightning around
my mind went out in space
just to feed my soul

as soon as I smelled the salty water
and old palm trees said hello
my mind switched to another world
just to feed my soul

it was five in the morning up in the mountains
Gregory showed me the bees
my mind is in the garden of eden
just to feed my soul

a cool morning bath on a lonely beach
and all my cells get awake
my mind is riding with the waves
just to feed my soul
Track Name: Golden Light
GOLDEN LIGHT

golden lights
sparkle in the water
steady tides
waves of foamy lather
joyful sighs
echoes in the skyline
full moon shines
on a purple grapevine

golden light
shine on bright
feather-light
through the night
black to white
shine on bright
golden light

golden light
hypnotizes fire
floating kite
far away desire
nature’s might
boundless admiration
sunbeams’ flight
in cosmic constellation

golden light
shine on bright
feather-light
through the night
black to white
shine on bright
golden light
Track Name: (Good Old) Monopoly
(GOOD OLD) MONOPOLY

hey hey I know a game
let’s play «enterprise» without shame
let us dream of cash and fame
of illusions quite insane

in that hothouse bankers see
millions, billions – monopoly
bills and checks and stocks and all
it’s unreal and it will fall

too big to fail
unwilling to shrink
money-mad minds
too narrow to think

they spew towers called skyscrapers
drowning creatures in crude oil
they trust blindly printed papers
and in numbers and in spoils

might and money make them witless
while ignoring air and soil
tough controlling every business
bringing atoms to the boil

too big to fail
unwilling to shrink
money-mad minds
too narrow to think

back now to that silly game
monopoly – name of the blame
we have better games to play
in our manner in our way

too big to fail
unwilling to shrink
money-mad minds
too narrow to think
Track Name: The Mighty 4
THE MIGHTY 4

fire is the strongest weapon
in the fight against the cold
glowing sparks of transformation
let forget what others told

earth is huge and very solid
perfect playground for us all
the seasons’ colours really splendid
winter, summer, spring and fall

the mighty 4 – were born before
the mighty 4 – unlock the door
the mighty 4 – between the times
while we’re singing out our rhymes

water is a liquid wonder
lifeblood for just everything
first-hand from a mountain spring
truly the most refreshing drink

air is spreading wings of freedom
over landscape, sea and sky
birdies, clouds and swirling leaves
in seventh heaven we’ll fly high

the mighty 4 – were born before
the mighty 4 – unlock the door
the mighty 4 – between the times
while we’re singing out our rhymes
the mighty 4 – were born before
the mighty 4 – unlock the door
the mighty 4 – forever here
while we rise and disappear
while we rise and disappear
while we rise and disappear...
Track Name: To Fly
TO FLY

it’s the dream of a man
the biggest dream he ever had
it’s a dream of mankind
sure, the biggest dream he ever had
it’s absolutely simple how to fly
it’s not a dream now to fly

they got rockets, airplanes, satellites
and spaceshuttles too
jumbos for fivehundred people
and if they crash passengers die
but I know how to fly without danger
when I look into my baby’s eyes

yeah my baby shows me how to fly
higher than the highest sky
yeah my baby shows me how to fly
through sun and moon into a million stars
but the biggest star is my baby
he really shows me how to fly
