Album Lyrics

1. Sail On

a lot of spectators of the showbizz
are writing how strange it all is
they think that life is just a talkshow.
newspaper stories on vip’s
distracting us from realities
what’s going on behind that paper wall?

sail on sail on sail on through
finish off the started things
as if they were new
sail on sail on through
it’s easy if you do

it may seem nice not to look at things
it may seem smart just to go away
oh boy come on, it’s only for a day…

02. Destiny’s a Wave

the night casts silence
and darkness hides fate,
here is death’s stillness
and life hung in wait
destiny’s a wave my friend
and blindness is his mate,
destiny’s a wave
when the time cometh
beck’ning truth will show,
dreams thread all that’s real,
you alone shall know
destiny’s a wave my friend
and it’s time you must go,
destiny’s a wave

3. life is worth Living

the losers and the winners
the longhaired and the “skinners”
they’re all somehow looking for affection
the bashful and the bold ones
the younger and the old ones
always seem to miss a good connection
life is worth living,
come on step on in
if you just try to flourish
you can expect some rubbish
not everyone wants you to be a success
watch out for good advices
one never knows what the price is
to let them enter into your creations
life is worth living,
come on step on in
life is worth living,
come on step on in.

4. Dancing

dancing in the street, let’s have some fun
dancing on the beat till morning sun
i wanna go down to LA
where life goes on all night and day
dancing on the beach, feet in the sand
no one out of reach, touch every hand
i wanna go to St Tropez
hug everyone on my way
dancing, romancing, dancing, romancing, dancing, romancing
let’s go and play
dancing on the roof, above it all
get back in the groove, feel ten feet tall
life can be fun if we make it so
dancing in the rain, get soaking wet
move on like a train that never stops
live can be fun if we make it so
action alone will make us grow
dancing, romancing, dancing, romancing, dancing, romancing
let’s go and play.
dancing along will make things flow

5. Broken farm

on a mondaymorning they gave us warning,
leave this farm
all the time we spent there, even love affair
will loose its charm
take it, break it, if you haven’t got a soul
squash it, smash it, if you lost your control
meadows, trees and ditches,
flowers, leaves and fishes,
fade away
giving way to a smoker,
playing his game of poker,
he is to stay
take it, break it, if you haven’t got a soul
squash it, smash it, if you lost your control.

6. Fake News

we live in a world full of false data,
spread by interested parties
yes they specialize in fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news
news can easily be twisted,
changing the sequence of events
hard to recognize it’s
fake news, fake news, fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news……
what’s true for you is true for you,
no one can change that
what you observe is what you see,

continued

no one can change that
it may be all confused,
it might be out of place,
leave out undeniable evidence,
stressing unimportant details
sure they corrupt it into fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news
point out into the wrong direction,
dream up things that never happened
oh my, oh my god it’s fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news
fake news, fake news, fake news.
hold your position, keep it in space

8. Human Rights

human rights, where are human rights?
out of sight, who wants them to hide?
we’re all born equal and we’re all born free
having right to life, no slavery
you have these rights, your human rights
you have these rights, your human rights
freedom to move, freedom of thought
a safe place to live, wherever you stay
living in a fair and free world
no one singled out or unduly hurt
no reason why, there’s no reason why
no reason why, there’s no reason why

a shelter for all, a right to play
choose what to learn, don’t take that away
yes you have a right to know what they are
every person should feel safe to apply
these human rights, your human rights
these human rights, your human rights
these human rights, no one can take them away
your human rights, no one can take them away
your human rights, no one can take them away.

09. Time Trap

Jane had to go to school
eight o’clock sharp, that was the rule
breaktime at ten o’clock
so she had time for a walk
time it can be a trap, like a fantastic web
hanging around you here on planet earth
time is not here to stay, it’s only just a way
to locate things in this universe
Sue ran to platform five
cutting through time like a knife
now that she missed the train
she gave it all up, sunk into pain
phone call to Wall Street
see if we can get some money freed
two minutes over time
everything’s lost, not one spare dime
time it can be a trap, like a fantastic web
hanging around you here on planet earth
time is not here to stay, it’s only just a way to locate things in this universe.

10. Silver Spaceships

silver spaceships flying high
they look like love trips through the sky
coming closer breathe the air
pick me up now I’ll be there
no more misery,
i’m going higher,
a new destiny,
where I wanna be
into another space
into another time
to clear another race
to fight another crime
gone confusion down below
no illusions people grow
they found love as their only way
we can pack up, leave today
no more misery,
i’m going higher,
a new destiny,
where I wanna be,
where I wanna be
into another space
into another time
into another space
into another time
to clear another race
to fight another crime.

11. Psychiatry

Joe was a bit odd, he tried to be God
professor doctor Wundt said ‘you can not’
Wundt missed the beat, thought he was just a piece of meat
a carbon oxygen machine on two feet
psychiatry, lost its sense of humanity
psychiatry, biggest crimes through the centuries
they said Joe is mad, he wanted to be glad
that was not what Wundt had in his head
psychs like to control, by denying man’s a soul
otherwise their genious brains won’t reach their goals
psychiatry, lost its sense of humanity
psychiatry, biggest crimes through the centuries
asperin, morfin, heroin, mescalin, dolphinin, suicine, feel free
obsession, depression, neurosis, psychosis, catatonic, gin tonic, feel free
Joe blew the scene, now he’s totally clean
enjoying life in a way you’ve hardly seen
he could get out, not by primals, scream and shout
there’s real knowledge one can know more about.

12. Who AM I

I’m not what i pretended, it’s over now it’s ended
I’m me just me I’m me I’m myself
I don’t believe in magic, hypnotics or such tragic
I believe in me, in me I’m myself
can’t you see, no body but me
can’t you see, no body but me
I missed some nomenclature
about live its basic nature
now I know I know that I’m a soul
I’m sure that I can cause things
like a bird spreading out its wings
I can cause of course I’m a source
can’t you see, no body but me
can’t you see, no body but me.

Listen Now

Special thanks

To my producer Ernst Van Dusseldorp who, with his passion and inspiration, helped me fulfill my dream of recording this debut CD. Without his help and belief in the project, my songs would probably have never seen the light of day.

Also, special thanks to and admiration for Johan Keeman, who played the different guitars on all the tracks. His contributions have been invaluable!

Further thanks for the creative

input from Rhythm Haakman, and the other musicians. It has been a joy to have worked with all of you.
