...du bist mir
trost wenn dein
herz lacht

I'm so drunk
The stars drip
In a midnight sky

mondkind

mondkind, mondkind
du bist so wild
dein herz hat gelacht
inmitten der sternenpracht
umschwärmt von der nacht
die unendlich scheint

mondkind, mondkind
dein schlaf ist süß
du hast geträumt
deine sinne mit mohn bestäubt
dein herz betäubt
damit es glücklich scheint
und im stillen
ein engel
weint

mondkind, mondkind
du bist so fern
du hast geweint
dich mit roter blumen trost vereint
die liebe blieb dir verneint
die alles birgt
und im stillen
ein engel
stirbt

morgenrot

ich liege im dunkeln
es ist mitten in der nacht
kein schatten bricht das nichts
und ich bin hellwach

es sitzt in meinem kopf
wie ein nagel im beton
ich halt das nicht mehr aus
ich muss raus

draussen auf dem asphalt
alles leer und kalt
warten bis der tag anbricht
auf das erste licht

und im innern brennt ein meer
lichterloh am horizont

draussen herrscht seit
menschheit krieg
dummheit will den sieg
verbrannte erde überall
macht und eitelkeit das ziel

es wird knapp die zeit läuft ab
wahnsinn hat regiert
mensch das ist das neue wort
hier und da und jetzt und dort

und im innern brennt ein meer
lichterloh am horizont
und im innern brennt ein meer
lichterloh im morgenrot
und im innern brennt ein meer
lichterloh vor wut

felsenau - stein
das mädchen auf der brücke

spät in der nacht
auf dem nachhauseweg

über die brücke am fluss
unter einem klaren, kalten himmel

spüre ich, dass der herbst
beginnt dem sommer
die tage zu stehlen

wie ein dieb
der die liebe aus
den herzen stiehlt

und wie aus einem traum gerissen
lehnt ein dunkles bündel vor mir
am brückengeländer

ein bitterlich weinendes mädchen
am boden kauernd
in einem schwarzen mantel

klein und zierlich
und ihr weh klingt tief
aus ihrem innersten

denn ihr dieb
war der tod
der ihr das liebste nahm –
ein junge
gerahmt in einem bild
am brückengeländer

du stehst mitten
im spätherbstwald
mit einem strauß

voll von roten beeren

rot wie dein mund

rot wie deine backen

rot wie deine zipfelmütze

du süsser kleiner

schön bist du

Songs

Moonchild

Moonchild, moonchild
So wild are you
Your heart has laughed
Midst the stars‘ glory
Idolized by the night
Seeming infinite

Moonchild, moonchild
Sweet is your sleep
You‘ve dreamt
Senses dusted with poppy
Your heart torpid
That it appear blissful
And in the stillness
An angel weeps

Moonchild, moonchild
Distant are you
You‘ve wept
Cloven to milk tears‘ solace
Love is denied you
That saveth all
And in the stillness
An angel dies

Nightingale

When its getting cold outside
Let me slip - under your skin
And rock me in your sacred swing
High - upon a hill
While the moon shines pale
And a nightingale
Sings

When its getting dark outside
Let me slip - into your heart
And lull me with a lovely chant
Deep - into sleep
High - upon a hill
While the moon shines so pale
And a nightingale
Sings

And when its getting light outside
Let me slip into the day
And leave a sweet kiss on my lips
Until - we meet again
High - upon that hill
Where the moon shines pale
And a nightingale
Sings

High - upon that hill
Where the moon shines so pale
And a nightingale
Sings
My longing heart
I loved to give away
For a song
It now belongs to you

Midnight Sky

I'm so drunk
The stars drip
In a midnight sky

Like tears
The (Thi) angels cry
In a midnight sky

I´m thinking of you
A bit sad, a bit blue

My heart drips
Like the stars
In a blu, blue, blue
Midnight sky

I see the moon
A loony tune
In a midnight sky

Shine on me
Like a dear old friend
In a midnight sky

I´m thinking of you
Still in love with you

My heart drips
Like the stars
In a blue, blue, blue
Midnight sky

Teatime

Late at night a train pulls in
Into the station of justice
Long and black
And filthy

And the smoldering breaks
Whinny like a crazy horse
And with a heavy wheeze
Sulphury steam fades

In the driver ´s cab
In the fiery glow of coals
Two black furry faces
Flicker

Two black furry faces flicker
With green eyes
and crimson tongues
With green eyes
And crimson tongues

All of a sudden
Deadly hush floods the track
And the diner door
Silently opens

And leaden shadows move
over to the train
Without a luggage
Without soul

Two black furry faces flicker
With green eyes
and crimson tongues
Its the engineer and his stoker
Its the Devil and his chum
Welcome the warlords
For a cup of tea

Walnut Tree

Under the walnut tree
Under the chilly leaves
I had a lucid dream
Like on LSD

Midst the sea of green
Underneath a shining leaf
Two fire bugs poise
In the silence
Of an endless day

Poise
Poise
In the silence
Of an endless day

Hey fire bug dude
May I ask you a question
Is it love or sex
Or just mating instinct
Kissing time

Oh kissing time
Oh kissing time
Kissing time
Kissing time

Jealous am I
Kissing time

Midst the sea of green
under the walnut tree

Kissing time
midst the sea of green
under the walnut tree

Kissing time
midst the sea of green
Like on LSD

Ovid

A holy breeze kisses
Our moist skin tenderly

Your luscious lips are begging
For a kiss

And all the hurtful words forgiven
Embrace the sweet sin

Crimson king´s blood flows
through our hearts

There no shadow breaks the light
Makes us one

And shared desire falls
like the night

Pure and silent

Only the wind among
The old trees
Whispers love poems
Of the Roman dandy Ovid

There Will Be No Peace

Keep a wolf in a cave
Blind the eyes of a brave

Behead a rose in the snow
Kill a beautiful heart with a bow

Then you know
there will be no peace

Keep the crowd cunning down
Adorn the evil with a crown

Slaughter a blackbird in its bed
Feed the poor with holy bread

Then you know
there will be no peace

Behead a rose in the snow
Kill a beautiful heart with a bow
Then you know
there will be no peace

Poison the land and the sea
Ban the tribe of the free

Claim water for a brand
Swing the scythe at the right hand

Then you know
there will be no peace

Slaughter a blackbird in its bed
Feed the poor with holy bread
Then you know
there will be no peace

Seven Little Boys

Seven little boys
Romp in a field
Caressed by a breeze
On a summer´s afternoon
Under a chinook sky

The scream of a whistle
Splits the sweet air
Hear a raptors calling
While wheeling over the field
High above a chinook sky

Seven little boys
Now march in a field
Forced by a hawk
To hate and kill
Under a foreign sky

Seven little crosses
Stand in a field
Someday a dark star will shine
From the west until the (:thi) east
Under a peaceful sky

Braid a crown of flowers
For those boys out in the field
Send a pigeon to their mothers
Deep in grief - and pray
To bring em home

The Dream

In the moldy breath of the night
Imbued with the scent of beasts
I ran down to the river
With a gun in my hand

Because I heard a man crying
To ask for forgiveness

Pale wood like bones
Were spread out on the bank
Fear filled my heart
And the sky closed over me

When I got down to the river
With a gun in my hand

And I saw myself standing
And crying in the calm flow
of the river

With a trembling heart
In my hands

When I got down to the river
With a gun in my hand

And I saw my reflection
In the calm stream of the river
Passing me by

Under Water

Under water
Under water
The world drowns in a faint sound

Under water
Into the silence
Let me rest for a little while
Only for a little while

And don’t worry
I’ll hold my breath
For another kiss before I drown
For another kiss before I drown

Under water
Slowly sinking
There’s nothing that really hurts

Far below
Darkness can’t scare me
Your smile still glimmers above
above my heart

Under water
Life and dreams are passing by
Behind closed eyes
Just hold one finger
To pull me up
To pull me up at the right time

To pull me up for another kiss

Tiny Angels

Dusty gleam on my guitar
Dull silver in my hair
Times running fast
And youth belongs to the past

My old chair starts groaning
From all the sorrows resting on me
And my shoes are full of wrinkles
Like my face when I smile
When I try to smile

Tiny angels in my chest pocket
Still ease my mind
Tiny angels in my chest pocket
Still encourage me

Pale spots on my skin
Show years that passed by
And the back of my hand
Looks like the bark of a Scots pine

All the kisses of love
Taste like dark chocolate
With a touch of ginger
A little bit sweet
And a bit bitter

Tiny angels in my chest pocket
Still ease my mind
Tiny angels in my chest pocket
Still ease my mind

Still ease my mind

Once Upon A Time

There was a horse they could not tame
Raised by a boy without name
Love was safe in his gracious hand
And so he became king in a magical land

There is a river that flows backwards
From the sea to its well

There was a bird they could not trap
Taught by a girl who created the star map
Her beautiful mind gave names to all the stars
And so she became queen of the celestial hearts

There is a river that flows backwards
From the sea to its well

Where a king guards the horses and love
Where a queen watches over the stars high above
Where the heavens touch the earth – day and night
And a bird sings for the king‘s bride

There is a river that flows backwards
From the sea to its well

But my eyes bleed
And my ears hurt
From all the things
I’ve seen and heard

* And there are the starry heavens above me
And the moral law within me

*Quote: Immanuel Kant

The Girl On The Bridge

Late at night
On my way home

Across the bridge
Down by the river

Beneath a clear
Cold sky

I feel that autumn
Is starting
To steal summer’s days

Like a thief
Stealing
The love from your heart

And like torn
From a wistful dream

A dark bunch is leaning in front of me
On the bridge’s rail

A girl bitterly weeping
Crouching on the ground in a black coat

Small and petit
And her pain sounds deeply
Right from her heart

Death
Is the thief
Who took her dearest one away

A boy framed in a picture
On the bridge’s rail
Across the bridge
Down by the river

Across the bridge
Down by the river

A girl bitterly weeping

Shout A Prayer

For the homeless in the street
And a saint in the killing field

For the refugee in a no man‘s land
And a beggar without a hand
– Say a prayer

For the abused in mute pain
And the thirsty without rain

For the poet from Sichuan
And a fighter without a gun
– Say a prayer

For the lost of Vietnam
And a prophet with a ripped-off tongue

For the chased in the early morning haze
And an enslaved without a grave
– Say a prayer

For the many without a childhood
And a suicide in the neighbourhood

For the free without a claim
And a beautiful thought without an aim
– Say a prayer

Shout a prayer out in the night
To strike a light for a brave heart

The world’s still turning
While men are burning
The world’s still turning
While men are burning

Kick the devil out of bed

Woke up at first light
The devil next to me
Thought it was an angel
Last night when fallin´asleep

Transformer´s endless groove
Still crackling in my ear
And on the ceiling blurry
The distant glow of the sea

Dream still swingin´
Strangely into dawn
Made the devil my bride
Lou Reed´s to blame
Took a “Walkon the Wild Side”

 

Kick the devil out of bed

Give Me A Night

Give me a night
Under a timeless sky
And a Band of angels
To save our love

And with me lie
Lost in an endless dream
With eyes wide open
To see the beauty of Eden

Lay your sweet heart into mine
Without speaking a word
Cause in the stillness
Theres a secret only overs know

And with me fall
Arms in arms into the ligt
And there no word will hurt
Our naked skin

And there will be no one
To blame us for a sin
Where you and I
Will love forever

Lay your sweet heart into mine
Without speaking a word
Cause in the stillness
Theres a secret only overs know

Rosemary Tree

I dreamt last night
A terrible dream
My garden and in it
A rosemary tree …

The garden was a boneyard
A flowerbed the grave
And forth that green tree
Both crown and blossoms gave

I picked up all the blossoms
In a golden jar
It slipped out of my hands
And shattered wide and far

From it flowed tears and pearls
Of a color rose-blood red

 

What is the bearing of this dream
My Dearest are you dead?
