Black Market Dealers

Bombed ruins form the skyline
Burnt places all around
People trading their possessions
A keepsake for some bread

Crowded trains full of people
Remindful of a cattle transport
Families get separated
On the way to their new homes

Still the children search for cover
When they hear the airplanes
Their bags are always packed
Just with dolls, books and pencils

It's the summer of fourty-five
Black market dealers are in the streets
But we all feel so alive
Now we get again what we need

The first black men they ever saw
Were among the foreign soldiers
Some of them were really kind
Bringing food and sometimes sweets

No more sirens in the night
Which made you run into the basement
No more fear of foreign soldiers
Who came to search the house

It's the summer of fourty-five
Black market dealers are in the streets
But we all feel so alive
Now we get again what we need..

Blind Rage

With an inward turning gaze
Of one who sees his own truth
Certainly a true believer
In his superior mind
Hard times always bring about
A certain need for escape
Here we all let everyone
Bury his head in the sand

The lie, the war and the death
Now it's time to confess
What happened here so long ago
And do not claim that you don't know
Right here, right now, we are all one
No more a nation divided
Convinced by a leader we are all stunned
The time has passed we cannot hide it..

A whole nation in blind rage
More dangerous than anything
Whatever you will believe
Whatever will come to your mind

The lie, the war and the death
Now it's time to confess
What happened here so long ago
And do not claim that you don't know
Right here, right now, we are all one
No more a nation divided
Convinced by a leader we are all stunned
The time has passed we cannot hide it..

Date Of Expiration

Date of expiration
A disease you cannot cure
It's our destination
No delays anymore

Great expectations
But the end is so near
A strange iteration
And soon it starts again..

Did you ever smell the rain?
The humidity in the air?
Did you ever feel the pain?
Depending on what you will dare?

The sweetest pain you ever felt
It's fun and desperation,
Emotions which you cannot steal
Love has no date of expiration..

What an infiltration
Privacy's so far away
Station after station
Cannot stop my thoughts

The final decision
No excuses anymore
Time for condemnation
But do you really care?!

Did you ever smell the rain?
The humidity in the air?
Did you ever feel the pain?
Depending on what you will dare?

The sweetest pain you ever felt
It's fun and desperation,
Emotions which you cannot steal
Love has no date of expiration..

My Fortune

So many places I have been
So many faces I have seen
So I travelled for my life
Never settled, had a wife

So many friends I have met
So many friends I have led
A fortune-teller I once was
But my fortune will not last

And again I will stand up
I will empty this cup
To follow this road I will dare
A road to god knows where

I am standing naked in the rain
Crying out I called for god
A million questions in my head
But the answers god has not
I am standing naked in the rain
A white dove in my hand
I have lost my direction
Tell me, where is my promised land?

Under Deck

The sea was calm
And the night was hot
We were staying under deck
When the first boat shot

No suprise to us
That it hit us not
We were drinking under deck
When the second boat shot

The third boat loaded weapons
Before its cannon shot
We were dancing under deck
When the fourth boat shot

We never will be hit
Led by the hand of god
We were sleeping under deck
When the next one shot

Aboard our ship
Down to the sea
We'll always be safe
God set us free
We seize upon the enemy
We win in the fight
We're supposed to win
Because we have this right

The wind blew hard
And the sea was rough
We were laughing under deck
When the last one shot

Aboard our ship
Down to the sea
We'll always be safe
God set us free
We seize upon the enemy
We win in the fight
We're supposed to win
Because we have this right
