Lyrics

Bleierne Glieder

Wie müde Krieger

Auf dem Feld unseres Lebens

Und das Leben ist das Geben

 

Unter den Sternen

Die Sterne sie wärmen

In der Nacht, wenn uns kalt ist

Wenn der Frieden unter all der Gier zerbricht...

 

Immer wieder...

 

Bin ich bei Dir

Bin ich zuhause

Sing ich die Lieder

Singe ich von morgen

Bin ich bei Dir, fühl ich mich geborgen...

 

Eiskalte Hände

Steinerne Wände

Nur erschaffen um zu trennen

Damit wir nicht erkennen...

 

Mitten im Leben

Will mich nicht ergeben

Doch der Weg zurück zu Dir

Ist lang und steinig

Durch die Fremde, ohne Liebe...

 

Immer wieder...

 

Bin ich bei Dir

Bin ich am leben

Find ich mich wieder

Sing ich von übermorgen

Bin ich bei Dir, fühl ich mich geborgen...

Lyrics

We’re living in a prison made of hype

In memory of the real thing we kick into overdrive

And dance the dance of high end politics

Turning into faceless derelicts

 

Welcome to the last course of the feast

Where the loudest live to steal the hard earned breadcrumbs of the least

Where empathy is just an empty phrase

And peace and love just vanished in the craze

 

And the world it keeps on turning

But it’s turning inside out

And everything we stood for seems to suffocate in fraud

 

And the barons play it easy

Still advertising fear

And it’s a long cold winter out here

 

I still commence to pray for love & light

As long as we keep walking through this never ending night

This omnipresent fake and make belief

Those who win will always spell out history

 

But the winners are not friendly

In fact they hate your guts

They rearrange your sanity and slowly drive you nuts

 

And the barons take it easy

Still after all those years

And it’s a long cold winter out here

 

And the wind is getting colder

In this desperate part of town

But the servants of the system slightly turn the truth around

 

Cause the system is not friendly

In fact it hates your guts

It drowns you in  insanity and slowly drives you nuts

 

But the vessels of our patience

Are filled to overflow

Don’t want no long cold winter no more

Lyrics

On a warm and sunny September morning
I believe I saw this light on your face
And I felt so rich for what I was given
That someone like you has come my way

Human I am
For all that feels real
You make my world
You make me feel

Human I am
Within your name
You are my painting
And I am your frame

When the wind on your way is growing colder
And the light seems to fade from your grace
Just move on and remember our moments
When everything around you was standing still

Human I am
Human with all these stupid mistakes I know
And the fame I’m longing for
But when your world comes tumbling down
I swear I’ll be there cause
Human I am…

Human I am
For all that I like
For everything good
To light up my mind

Human I am
Within your game
You are my address
And I am your name

Lyrics

Tell me - where did I go? Down on my knees – praying To catch the dawn and let my day go And what did I do? Darkest nights I made it through Waiting, talisman around my neck Show me the reason, if it isn’t for love If it isn’t for all of us You drown all my tears in the morning haze You smile at me while you reflect my gaze A child of the summer in the City of Love Help me – I don’t want to leave Laying in my bed – dreaming Of a place I’ll surely find But when I awake No one’s here to testify Show me What is the value – if it isn’t for love If it isn’t for all of us You drown all my tears in the morning haze You smile at me while you reflect my gaze A child of the summer in the City of Love C 2001

Lyrics

I don’t want to say that I’m sorry I just want to say that I’ve tried I don’t need to pick up the pieces This sentiment has died There was no need to understand We gave it in your hands We were so close we thought That it would be the way Share a little sight of your silver Share a little sight of your gold Shed a little light on our sorrows I shiver when I look At all those mansions of pretence A world that makes no sense And as the walls were built I felt that it would never be the same I’m in a cave and time goes by Still searching for the reason why You wanted me right from the start Away away from our hearts Man I can’t rest as time turns dead Still living in those days we had You’ve been my sun – my only friend I went away away selling my care Little by little it will get you Little by little you will find The air is getting just a bit colder Coming down with rain It's been so easy for a while For someone with a smile But when it started pouring all day long I knew it was my time

Lyrics

These are the kind of things we can not leave behind This is the wealth of all excuses in our mind This is the life that we deserve most probably In fact we close our eyes cause we don't want to see This is the kind of noise that makes us def and mute We stand in line and watch our bros turn into brutes This is the billion dollar lie most certainly In fact we are so close that I can feel your grief Higher - we got to feel the rain inside These are the kind of acts that put us where we are Our sad and phoney observation of it all And all the peace and love that we don't want to give Compassion waits we live the life we have to live Higher - we got to feel the rain inside And after all they heard our begging for control The new department for the regimented souls Who are you governors or presidents or God? In fact I don't know but this world is getting odd
Andy Susemihl

Lyrics

Stuck inside a world gone mad I hold you Just to find out what it is That you do Every day of all my life I saved up Caught within this lonely quest For make up And now that life goes on Could this be my calling? My son maybe it’s too late Maybe I have fallen For you Every time I check my head I can see The part of me that died When you first broke free The resignation from a game That killed me And now that life goes on Could this be my calling? My son maybe it’s too late Maybe I have fallen For you

Story

This is actually a funny story...the lyrics to "Gordon Brown" are about the archetype of today's no name guy...when we came up with the song in 2006 nobody knew about Gordon Brown...at the end of 2006 we found out that Gordon probably will be the next premier of Great Britain...what a coincidence...it also adds a completely new facette to the meaning of the lyrics..but check for yourself.

Lyrics

I say Do it to me now Cause I’m the victim From space The color of my skin Might look different I mean I wouldn’t be around If it was not me And I know That people everywhere Make fun of me And my name is Gordon Brown I keep waiting for the answer And this face is not my face Your adrenaline works wonders Dead time Screaming oh my god I have to hurry A whole life Devoted to the Chance to aim for glory Hello it’s me I’m calling from the world That you gave me I say Fool me like you do It makes me feel good I wait In television land To find the real God

Mornin light awakes my eyes only closed what seems a minute Malignified I shake inside lonely road dust gleams within it A filth upon my hands so dry of all the human stain still I'm drawn by sands to cry love falls to ruin and pain   I limp the walk of adding guilt to what was once our home flints of rock gash in my pelts through cuts that lead to bone my callous act of slaying feels to be askew such malice now I'm praying wheels me back to you  I am your Martyr      can i breathe with you again? I am your 0Martyr      belief removes my sin I am your Martyr      blame everything on me I am your Martyr      of all thats happening   verse3. Someway must be found  for you to forgive me Lucidity has costs in al that we both see a merging reverence tainted while wicked maidens cry with thousand left to save you with my heart I try

Lyrics

Goddess in her heaven Queen on her throne Forever a lady No one would ever own Spirit of a shadow Spirit of a stone Spirit of the moment Never letting go And I believe she’s all I asked for And I believe she’s what I got She took me by the hand She helped understand She took my fears away Gave me purpose and the day A simple question asked The moment came at last And I believe she’s all I asked for And I believe she’s what I got And I believe she came to rescue To justify the end She lives inside my dreams Wants me to redeem The sorrows in my eyes Trade them for this very life I know I’m not alone My lady leads me home And I believe she’s all I asked for And I believe she’s what I got And I believe she came to rescue To justify the end C 2001

Lyrics

The river flows a while Until it stops and dies Diamonds are rusting Gone are my thoughts I had my faith in line Ever since you broke free Everything you made us see Get me to the world on time The sun it melts my brain The rivers all ran dry Somebody said love was a ghost Back in another time Ever since you broke free All I do is wait and see Smile and leave the world behind Push your story up my spine

This song turned out to be a beautiful ballad I think. It was intended to be a blues song for a L.A. based blues band I was playing in for some time...but sometimes songs develop their own dynamics...

Lyrics

A sense of time comes over me Ticking away Generations came to see But no one would stay A rendezvous under the stars On cold violent ground I don’t think that I am blind I can’t help but realize I look into your eyes I can see the rain I look into your face It’s the face of pain We use the well until we become Feathers of light Someday when the work is done After the night And the oldest souls will have their feast And leave us behind I don’t think that I am blind… I look into your eyes I can see the rain I look into your face It’s the face of pain

Valentine was here today And gone without a sound Silent days have come my way Today I’ll stand my ground Without your love I’m on my own My heart has turned to stone I’ll cast it far into the sea I’ll cast it far and travel on I’ll find my way – Silent days I’ll find my way – Silent days To never move and travel far Is a journey of the heart Silent days have come my way In solemn waves I’ll start Without your love I’m on my own My heart has turned to stone I’ll cast it far into the sea I’ll cast it far and travel on I’ll find my way – Silent days I’ll find my way – Silent days Words: Chris Sainz Music: Andy Susemihl C 2001

All is quiet on New Year's Day A world in white gets underway I want to be with you Be with you night and day Nothing changes on New Year's Day On New Year's Day I will be with you again I will be with you again Under a blood red sky A crowd has gathered in black and white Arms entwined, the chosen few The newspapers says, says Say it's true it's true... And we can break through Though torn in two We can be one I...I will begin again I...I will begin again

Something I wrote in Los Angles about to leave for Europe. It had to be a blues, because leaving the City of Angels was rather hard after making myself at home...

Lyrics

Green Blues Oh baby... It's been a long way home Oh lady The world has changed while I was gone I made it half way to the angels They've been stomping on my blues Oh baby It's been the way to go Oh darling A lot of hopeless dreams I've sold I tried to walk among the living but they walk all over you Oh baby Can't you see the little boy is gone Oh lady He never would have made it home...

We wrote this song after the recent warfare in the middle east...the whole story is way more complex...these are our thoughts.

Lyrics

Soul Every inch of you is perfect And your looks are so amazing You want it all just like you want me Want to rule a world that hates you You fill your words with higher meaning And your way is so convincing You take it all and I get nothing in return I can see you with the eyes of the soul Every look at you is blinding But your stutter is revealing When I lay my arms around you I can see – I can feel I don’t know you But I can see you in my arms now I can see you in my arms now In a world so familiar In a world - in a world we’ll find I can see you Shooting lies into my veins I know you On the outside Smiling faces make believe How you care I can see you I need shelter from the rain Of lies On the outside Hungry faces crave the need For life I try to find out how to hurt you Search the window of your fortune To find out how much I adore you To find out how it hurts to hurt you Come around you crazy elder Come around you crazy fucker You’ve left me stranded by the roadside You’ve found your home right on the state line But everything you are is perfect And your arguments are deadly What you say The way you move How badly you want me to think You’re right

How can it be this way? To learn to love It's like dancing in the Light Naked in the Sun Her Skin brushing mine And we were tasting Time Give me Rays Send me Waves of Light & Love Can she make the Difference in my Life? Find a Place to Rest Unknowing we'll pass the Test As the others all become The Puppets on Parade Sense a Change in Life Glimpse the Reasons why Taste the Change Rearrange my Point it's Time Can she make the Difference in my Life? Light pours down on me And I'm caught in a motion It's like a wheel spinning It gains for everyone Tasting Change

You can't find the Words to break it to me Cause she always was the gentle Kind She's hopin' I hear it from a friend somewhere She's hopin' I read between the lines But it comes as no surprise Cause she told me with her Eyes So watch her untie the tie that binds She's got a single Thing in Mind She's already gone except in Body It's just a matter now of Time Well I should have seen the Storm Clouds gathering But he who won't look is just as blind So there's only me to blame When my Woman drops my Name So watch her untie the tie that binds She's got a single Thing in Mind

The Cracks appear was the band that later turned into 7-9-7 and we already played some of the songs we still play today. Friend of mine was recorded at the Music Grinder, Hollywood, CA. Mike Swanson on bass (also the first 7-9-7 bass player) and Andre Labelle on drums (Vinnie Vincent, Kiss)...produced and recorded by Rudy Haeusermann.

Lyrics

Friend of mine Don’t wrestle with your situation boy Don’t wrestle with your observation of your lack of joy Don’t wrestle with the fighting in the streets Or the girl of your dreams, that you may never meet Dreaming, believing, that you’ve got a chance Dreaming, believing in the myth Dreaming, believing, that you’ve got a chance What in your life could be so wrong? What if I say you’re a friend of mine What if I say you’re inside my mind What if I say you’re a friend of mine……. Don’t wrestle with the karma you have made Don’t tell me about your compilation of the things you hate Don’t wrestle with the hand that holds you down Or your hopes may die without ever being found Dreaming, believing, that you’ve got a chance Dreaming, believing in the myth Dreaming, believing, that you’ve got a chance What in your life could be so wrong? What if I say you’re a friend of mine What if I say you’re inside my mind What if I say you’re a friend of mine…….

Lyrics

Conviction In the middle of this game You got dealt the one card Maybe not the joker But something to hold on It's burning in your stomach Pissing off your father Your mother shook her finger Destinations are all different So you told them not to bother You never be your brother I think you are you And you are beautiful And in your face I see conviction Wanting to succed And in your eyes I see the depth With the power of a dream You like living in the center Leaving for the weekend Tightening your bookends And days passing by Situations never different Just a little abstract With a little subtract Life is just a blue sky And in your face I see conviction Wanting to succed And in your eyes I see the depth With the power of a dream Your mind is a piece of heaven Greater than you might think But it's your smile where I see conviction Oh baby can't you see it's been a long time...

Lyrics

The Weight of the World They say that nothing is free And nothing is certain Can be an eternity When something is hurting God tries to love you But he falls down Who do you turn to When he's not around? This is the darkness in your eyes This is the weight of the world This is the fun you could have had This is the tumor in your head This is the life you chose instead And when you are hungry You devour your meal Got tired so easy Maybe that's how you feel When we try to hug you You just turn around This is the darkness in your eyes This is the weight of the world This is the fun you could have had This is the tumor in your head This is the life you chose instead They say that nothing is easy And nothing's for free

Lyrics

Trip Stalking He's in the shadows, lurking there Charming No sanity but lots of flair And in the bedroom of his mind She's undressed There's not a safe place she can hide He's obsessed Married To a woman that he's never met Bursting to buy her love with a hint of threat You can never say goodbye He's upset If you resist him he'll deliver Your regret Smiling With a slightly psycho look in his eye Reaching He will take her on his first try And in the graveyard of his mind He confessed Gazing down into the pit There she rests

Lyrics

Lady When she was young a girl so sweet Surrounded by the fire's heat She didn't care She only tried to be free She walked around a graceful gate If I would cry she wouldn't wait She didn't mind She only tried to be free She didn't talk she didn't cry She didn't hear gave no reply She didn't care She only tried to be free I talked to her whispering in her ear She turned around My heart stood still She smiled and said I'm only trying to be free She was a lady and I felt so save with her
