Lyrics
1. First Time

[Words and Music by Michael Weikath]

Will you first time... Will it be... I think of someone like me ?
Makes me wonder,I can show you'd neverthought you'd see.
You're like sunshine,I can feel your heat is drying out my brain,
Would you feel like... like we're having fun it Ican do the rain ?
Have you thought out your dreams, do you have some ?
Let's see if we can find some more.
Give me your fancies at random,I think we can deal with them all.
I can't wait forever, baby, open me your door,
I just want your loving if you cannot give me more.
I can see you standing there, you know you're worth the try,
Let me guide you in my spaceship and I'll surely make you have
A R e a l G o o d T i m e .
Don't waste time now - you are soaking wet, so fix the things you got,
Guess you know how - and when you're done I dotta see you strut.
My desire - can I watch you rock and know which one of choose ?
I'm no liar - I could take you down and you got nothing to lose.
I don't know any better occasion, can't hold back, it's the end of the day
I don't think you're here for the first time, no problem with me anyway.
I can't wait forever, baby, open me you door,
I just want your loving if you cannot give me more.
I can see you standing there, you know we have a try,
I can feel this night is special and I surely make you have
A R e a l G o o d T i m e.
[Solo: Michael Weikath]

2. When The Sinner

[Words and Music by Michael Kiske]

Now it's time - to shake it all up, to be free,
Now it's time - to make us some room to let us be.
Oh, it feels so bad, yes, if fells so bad,
When everything good looks so bad,
When everything right goes so wrong.
I am up - to break it all down what's in my way,
I won't stop until I am where I'm going to stay.
No one holds me back, no, no one holds me back,
Don't wanna be what I am not,
But it's gotta be myself who breaks my neck.
I look here and you look there, I know it's got to be somewhere,
= Over my head - look over my head =
We look around and search around and walk around and hear around
= And you won't see no halo =
We keep on looking 'til we know what for.
If you don't know it,I don't know it, we don't know it, who will know it?
= It's driving me mad =
All of us don't know what we should know, maybe one day we'll know,
= I must hold it back inside =
But anyway we've got to make a stop.
When the sinner searches sin - it's all of us,
When we finally search inside - it's under us.
We keep on looking anyway if we don't find it - who must pay ?
All I've ever done - I've done for you !
In my mind - the battle goes on 'til I give up,
Will we find - the key of life we oncehave dropped ?
Do you realy care ? - Tell me you realy care !
You may find Mr. Blane, but the guilt of life burns everywhere.
Give me light to see my inside, give me light tosee my sin,
= Over my head - look over my head =
I'd never do what I regret, I've never done anything bad,
= And you won't see no halo =
You must be joking when you point at me.
Hey ! Don't you blame me ! Don't you touch me !
Won't you ever leave me be ? I wanna live! Don't wanna think!
= It's driving me mad =
Why should I give what I can drink ?
= I must hold it back inside =
When the sinner searches sin - it's all of us,
When we finally search inside - it's under us.
We keep on looking anyway if we don't find it - who must pay ?
All I've ever done - I've done for you !
Pain - I feel inside - it's such a Shame.
No one fights fair but who's to Blame ?
Might be the game of life but it ain't over.
Now ! I walk my way firm any
Now ! My conscience speaks andthere are Doubts !
But nothing's sure in life and it ain't over. Now !
I look here and you look there, I know it's got to be somewhere,
= Over my head - look over my head =
We look around and search around and walk around and hear around
= And you won't see no halo =
We keep on looking 'til we know what for.
If you don't know it,I don't know it, we don't know it, who will know it?
= It's driving me mad =
All of us don't know what we should know, maybe one day we'll know,
= I must hold it back inside =
But anyway we've got to make a stop.
When the sinner searches sin - it's all of us,
When we finally search inside - it's under us.
We keep on looking anyway if we don't find it - who must pay ?
All I've ever done - I've done for you ! ......

3. I Don't Wanna Cry No More

[Words and Music by Roland Grapow]

Hey, brother, I miss you so - you knoked on heaven's door,
And we won't see you anymore - it must be crazy what we're living for.
'Cause God's stopped keeping you on the ladder of you life,
I call your name with tears in my eyes.
I don't wanna cry no more -past gave me happiness and gain
Life is fleeting like aflower from a distance,
After sorrow I pray the Lord to keep your soul.
I don't wanna cry no more - we're still missing you.
Life's like a walking on a high wire,
You slipped away, I've seen you dying in vein.
High as mountains seem all the problems that I have,
But when I hear your voice far away out of the dark -
You just go on and on in the back of my mind.
I don't wanna cry no more -past gave me happiness and gain
Life is fleeting like aflower from a distance,
After sorrow I pray the Lord to keep your soul.
I don't wanna cry no more - we're still missing you.
Skin and bone won't touch the sky,
I hope you'll find passage out of the dark.
To the otherside of the sea and I know that I'll see you again.
[Acoustic and Electric Guitar Solo: Roland Grapow]
I don't wanna cry no more -past gave me happiness and gain
Life is fleeting like aflower from a distance,
After sorrow I pray the Lord to keep your soul.
I don't wanna cry no more - we're still missing you.
I don't wanna cry no more -past gave me happiness and gain
Life is fleeting like aflower from a distance,
After sorrow I pray the Lord to keep your soul.
I don't wanna cry no more - we're still missing you.


4. Crazy Cat

[Words and Music by Roland Grapow]

My little crazy cat took a train to meet his gang downtown.
They played Black Jack< Fritz played his false game too far.
A guy got up and started a gunfight.
He's looking for trouble day by day, for trouble, day by day,
Don't waste time, cute - runaway, you cute - runaway,
He kept being taken by sunrise, my stray in town.
Addicted to chicks, he's got a rental tree near the nudist beach.
Oh, watch out ! Booze and ladies are his fate.
Too much sex and food and Rock'n'Roll.
He's looking for trouble day by day, for trouble, day by day,
Don't waste time, cute - runaway, you cute - runaway,
He kept being taken by sunrise, my stray in town.
[Solo: Roland Grapow]
He's looking for trouble day by day, for trouble, day by day,
Don't waste time, cute - runaway, you cute - runaway,
He kept being taken by sunrise, my stray in town.
[Backing vocals - Lenny Wolf, Corrina, Michi and Roland]


5. Giants

[Words and Music by Michael Weikath]

[INTRO: Michael Weikath]

Strong and invincible, they know every rule,
Seems inconceivable anything they do.
They made us their slaves - we weren't unified,
Ever since we paid for selling our lives.
Someday, someway, I may see a wonderland,
Don't you, won't you say that we'll be free again.
Deprived of our consciousness, we can't predict what's more,
Can you remember how things used to be before ?
I secretly dream of things we will be taught,
Will someone esteem for those who have fought ?
Someday, someway, I may see a wonderland,
Don't you, won't you say that we'll be free again.
[Solo: Roland Grapow and Michael Weikath]
Strong and invincible, they know every rule,
Seems inconceivable anything they do.
Deep in our hearts we hope our dreams come true,
The only thing is "What are we to do ?"
Someday, someway, I may see a wonderland,
Don't you, won't you say that we'll be free again.
Won't you say it ... Can't you feel it .. ?


6. Windmill

[Music and Lyrics by Michael Weikath]

Time goes whenever you are, time is your guiding star,
That shines all through your life, makes you feel and move.
My dreams are out in the far, so are yours a part
Of secret fairy tales, dripped on the wings of a mystery mill.
Windmill, windmill,keep on turning -
Show me the way, take me today.
Windmill, windmill, hearts are yearning -
Longing for love and a chance to be free.
Don't feel alone and depressed, someone will come at last,
To soothe your stumbling mind, to keep it away from the evil storm.
Windmill, windmill,keep on turning -
Show me the way, take me today.
Windmill, windmill, hearts are yearning -
Longing for love and a chance to be free.
[Solo: Michael Weikath]
Windmill, windmill,keep on turning ...
Time goes whenever you are ...


7. Revolution Now

[Words and music by Michael Weikath]

[INTRO: Roland Grapow]

Well,I think it's really time again for a revolution,
Not to destroy at all costs but have a look at what's there.
Can you remember a time when water was still water,
Or are you too young to even know what we won't give to our heirs ?
Inhale the bless of science through your lungs, skin and brain !
It'll surely make our children feel a lot more sanel.
Revolution now ! ... Revolution now ! ...
I was born when April guaranteed a sexual renaissance,
And today we're all faced with death, rubbers and AIDS.
In'68 some people went out to fight for freedom,
They would never ever have thought that their children wear ties.
And if you come to San Francisco -
You're gonna meet some broken people there.
Revolution now ! Revolution now ! Revolution now ! Now !
[Solo: Roland Grapow and Michael Weikath]
Revolution now ! ... Revolution now ! ...
Revolution now ! ... Revolution now ! ...


8. In The Night

[Words and Music by Michael Kiske]

In the night I'm calling you - be my guide, help me through,
In the night i call your name - you're the light in times of shame.
The songs I sing, all my love - I bring for you.
I always try to makethings better, everything that has gone wrong,
Mighty plans in the right direction but very little has been done.
Everyday when I try to get forward - I find myself another mile back,
Help me fighting, help me breathing - why am I falling down instead ?
Every useful minute seems to be the thoughtof you,
Every hour seems like wasted, filled with things that I might do.
Without love in my reactions seems the saddest thing, but it's true.
In the night I'm calling you - be my guide, help me through,
In the night i call your name - you're the light in times of shame.
The songs I sing, all my love - I bring for you.
[Acoustic Solo: Roland Grapow]
Free from ourselves and free form this world we may find,
The freedom we search ,'cause all that we need is inside.
The hours we waste - we may not get back for a while,
And when it gets dark - no chance will be there for atry.
When I wake up early in the morning I catch abook and jump inside,
I fill my head with a million wonders and try to fill the night with light.
The moment when I get things clearer - I see another mountain to climb.
And always when I think I'm nearer - I realize there is no time.
In the night I'm calling you - be my guide, help me through,
In the night i call your name - you're the light in times of shame.
Sometimes I cried after all Ilied to you.
[Rhythm Guitar - Michael Kiske]


9. Music

[Words and Music by Roland Grapow]

When I was a young boy I had no aim,
Neither experience - it wasn't a shame.
Most of the time it satisfied me,
But some day I realized - music is like a rising sun.
Times are now changing and memory fades,
I gaze at the photos, a look in the haze.
You cannot imagine how many friends I've lost,
It's much too late for calling them back.
Music is like sunrise for me,
It's joyful like a trip in a time machine.
Music is like sunrise for me - it's like coming home.
I was always insecure, sometimes I still am,
But I made up my mind now - and look here I stand.
I ask myself sometimes: "Is it all worth it ?"
To fly over mountains - makes you fall down again
But music is like sunrise for me,
It's joyful like a trip in a time machine.
Music is like sunrise for me - it's like coming home.
[Solo: Roland Grapow and Michael Weikath]
Music is like sunrise for me,
It's joyful like a trip in a time machine.
Music is like sunrise for me - it's like coming home.


10. Step Out Of Hell

[Words and Music by Roland Grapow]

Time has come, start your search for tomorrow,
No escape from that long trail of sorrow.
You don't know how it keeps going on. Oh ... No ...
Wake up out of misty dreams,
Evil drugs is starting to grab you, to grab you.
Step out of hell - demons dancing around your brain.
Step out of hell - streams of madness flow through your veins.
Step out of hell - go on like this you're gonna be dead.
Step out of hell - take my hand I wanna help ... But can I ?
You did your best to keep yourself down,
Give it a rest and just turn around !
It's only a one way street of lies ... Yes it is !
Living in a twilight zone,
Get away out of that drug jungle, that drug jungle.
Step out of hell - demons dancing around your brain.
Step out of hell - streams of madness flow through your veins.
Step out of hell - go on like this you're gonna be dead.
Step out of hell - take my hand I wanna help you.
Another line, have a good time, you don't mind
To turn you brain inside out, to serve the final rite.
Step out of hell - demons dancing around your brain.
Step out of hell - streams of madness flow through your veins.
Step out of hell - go on like this you're gonna be dead.
Step out of hell - take my hand I wanna help you !


11. I Believe

[Words and Music by Michael Kiske]

Give me two strong arms to fight my enemies,
Give me two eyes to see the truth.
Give me two legs I think I have to run,
And fill my heart with faith that I won't lose.
I don't wanna lose ...
Give me one real love that I don't freeze out there,
Make me feel your presence in the night.
Give me one strong heart that tells me when I lie,
And take my soul - so I won't have to hide.
I don't wanna hide ...
It's so cold deep down here, I know we had to fall,
Souls are dying everywhere but whatever I do I believe.
I Believe ... I Believe ...
[Solo: Roland Grapow and Michael Weikath]
It's so cold deep down here, I know we had to fall,
Souls are dying everywhere but whatever I do ...
There'll be no reason to live without you giving me light,
There is so much that you give, your love is shining so bright.
I Believe ... I Believe ... I Believe ... Believe ...
I wanna love but I always hate - I wanna give but I always take.
Want you to laugh but I make you cry, maybe I won't change 'til I die.
It's so much easier said than done - I know I can't just always run.
Got so much anger inside of me, I understand but I think I see what I'm not.
I know it's true what J.C. said - I got it all clear in my head.
Seens we were born to be unfair,
I am a sinner that's starting to dare ... to Believe.
Give me your hand until the end and I will waik into promised land.
I don't deserve anything you do - but I can't stop loving you.
No more lies, no false religions,
No more "whys" and wrong God missions.
No shiny T.V. priests begging to cash,
No more wars that no God's ever asked for.
There's a way back out of here - one day we're going home,
Tell everyone who wants to hear - whatever you do ... do Believe.
I Believe ... We Believe ... Believe ... Oh !


12. Longing

[Words and Music by Michael Kiske]

Feelings come and go - I've never known,
Something longs to grow - won't let go.
Spirits around my head - are whispering,
I turn inside instead - of wondering.
Deep inside of me - I know there's got to be,
A different kind of truth - that sets the spirit free.
If I don't wanna know - what's written inside me,
How could I see anything - how could I be anything ?
Restless minds have searched - long before,
The truth will be same - for evermore.
The mightiness of trees - that you can feel,
Can give you all you need - just listen still.
Here is love and there is pain.
It's all around, it's all the same,
There's nothing new that I cuold tell to you.
But still there is the universe inside of us that never bursts,
We might not know the mining yet, but I am sure we can't reject
The truth that is in everything - that is and has been and will be.
There is a long way to go - there is a high place to know,
There is a world to go through - but there's so much more to do
Until we're home !
Deep inside of me - I know there's got to be,
A different kind of truth - that sets the spirit free.
If I don't wanna know - what's written inside me,
How could I see anything - how could I be anything ?
Feelings come and go - I've never known...
[Acoustic Guitar - Michael Kiske]
