Track Name: Passages
PASSAGES
lyrics by Kathrin Eberharter
music by Hans Hauser


Come pack your bags
we’ve waited for this day
Come pack your bags
it’s time to get away

away from all the scavengers
feasting on our lives
away from all those steady clocks
cutting up our time

AWAY from you
AWAY with you

As the road unfolds
as the story is told
slowing down the speed
we get more to be _______

The grey of these city’s blocks
is dulling our eyes
the noise of all the cars and clocks
is closing down our minds

away from all those concrete creeks
blocking our sight
alone on a mountain peak
celebrating life

ALONE with you
SAFE with you
STRANGER to you

As the road unfolds
as the story is told
slowing down the speed
we get more to be free



OLD
Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar
Music by Hans Hauser

I have seen peoples come and go
Alike the Ocean's ebb and flow;
I have seen kingdoms rise and fall
Like springtime shadows on a wall.
I have seen houses rendered great
That grew from life's debased estate,
And all, all, all is change I see,
So, dearest God, take me, take me.
Track Name: Another Day in Life
another day in life
words & music by Hans Hauser

She’s passing windows of shops downtown
sees reflections of the feelings she’s drowned
She’s l0oking at the people that exit the church
hanging their heads 'cause they haven’t been heard

She talks to the poor man down on the street
realising she won’t cover his needs
She hears the birds flying away to the south
carrying all hope out of town
and her heart is a frown

She walks through the lonely streets in the night
and watches poor little creatures burn in the lights
She catches a fight from a window nearby
and before she is gone they’ve started to cry
and her heart’s a frown

She reads in the paper a war has been won
her mind pictures all the souls that are gone
She looks at the leaves, they’ve already turned brown
as if to remind her that her heart is a frown
Track Name: Worth a try
WORTH A TRY
words and music by Hans Hauser

openly unprepared and secretly a little scared
walking side by side, gentle creatures of the night
all desires soaked in pain, sympathy seems in vain
for you carry the world upon your shoulders.

you will have to leave this little world behind
and take a leap into what’s out there open wide
you might get lost but on your way back home
you will see it’s worth a try

all observing, all deserving, all beloved precious one
constantly in need, modesty does not compute
trick or treat, hide and seek, love and hate, right and wrong
not quite ready to decide for yourself

you will have to leave this little world behind
and take a leap into what’s out there open wide
you might get lost but on your way back home
you will see it’s worth a try
Track Name: What We Want
What We Want
lyrics by Kathrin Eberharter
music by Hans Hauser

granted, they have done their good
fed the starving, sheltered the poor
when words were simply not enough
they provided symbols of higher love

time to cut off these strings
time to let go and trust ourselves

how to understand this place
with doubtful eyes we watch each face
justice … does not exist

time to cut off these strings
time to let go and trust ourselves

the cruel winters are dark and cold
what to hold on to when we grow old
what feeble thing is our mind
is any of this intelligent design?

time to cut off these strings
time to let go and trust ourselves
the human mind is a wonderful thing
compassion and reason are our resorts

we want to be taught to think not forced to obey
we need to look at each other not look the other way
there is no larger plan, it’s all now and here
let’s believe in ourselves and we won’t have to fear

don’t rob this planet it wasn’t given to you
the rules for your children have got to be your rules too
there is no larger plan, it’s all now and here
let’s believe in ourselves and we won’t have to fear
Track Name: Fade Away
FADE AWAY
words and music by Hans Hauser

you guys can easily say
“it’s better to burnout than to fade away”
your shadows are hanging over me
I feel unworthy of your company

I search my soul, I drain my heart
I share my love, I share my pain
but it’s never gonna be good enough,
no, it’s never gonna be good enough!
no, it’s never gonna be good enough for me.

and all in all it’s alright –
my light’s never gonna shine just as bright
and all in all it’s ok
that I won’t burn out, just fade away

I feel paralyzed when I write my words
haunted by the songs I’ve heard
enlightened by your genius that mortifies the rest of us
overwhelmed by your legacy, I envy you for your creativity

and all in all it’s alright –
my light’s never gonna shine just as bright
and all in all it’s ok
that I won’t burn out, just fade away

I search my soul, I drain my heart
I share my love, I share my pain
but it’s never gonna be good enough,
no, it’s never gonna be good enough!
no, it’s never gonna be good enough for me.

and all in all it’s alright –
my light’s never gonna shine just as bright
and all in all it’s ok
that I won’t burn out, just fade away.
Track Name: Soon
soon
words and music by Hans Hauser

On the bright side – money is rolling in,
and it’s worth it!
Keep assuring that we chose our own way to live
Keep ignoring it takes more than we’ve got to give

AND SOON I’LL BE LOOKING INTO THE SUN
AND THIS LIFE SEEMS LIKE FOREVER GONE
BUT NOW I JUST HOLD MY HEAD AND CRY

Empty ceiling is telling me to rest
unsteady heartbeat is tightening my chest
dripping face didn’t pass the test
Take a deep breath, it might be my last

AND SOON I’LL BE LOOKING INTO THE SUN
AND THIS LIFE WILL BE FOREVER GONE
THIS SUNNY DAY COULD LAST FOREVER
LEAVE OR STAY – NOW OR NEVER!
Track Name: Alone
ALONE
Poem by Edgar Allan Poe
Music by Hans Hauser

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.
Track Name: Dawn
Dawn
Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar
Music by Hans Hauser

An angel, robed in spotless white,
Bent down and kissed the sleeping Night.
Night woke to blush; the sprite was gone.
Men saw the blush and called it Dawn.
Track Name: Goodbye (Prelude)
Goodbye (Prelude)
words and music by Hans Hauser

Goodbye my love, I wanted to thank you
Goodbye my love, I’m sorry I’ve never met you
Goodbye my love, we will never forget you
Goodbye my love, goodbye.
Track Name: Goodbye
Goodbye
words and music by Hans Hauser

There are times when you just have to say goodbye
Take a breath and turn around
Within a heartbeat you will feel a great relief
But there is guilt, there is guilt!

Stay with me – come back home
Stay with me – stay!!!!

I don’t want to let you go
I don’t want to let you go

There are times when you just have to say goodbye
One last look and already the pain
There will be others but it will never be the same
Why can’t we try – can’t we try?

Stay with me – come back home
Stay with me – stay!!!!

I don’t want to let you go
I don’t want to let you go
Track Name: Willston Lane
WILLSTON LANE No.203
words and music by Hans Hauser

but how come I get to pay so much rent?
what do I get for the money I spend?
the hair on the floor, the noise next door
the rooms that stink, the dirty dishes in the sink

there´s too many people, no space in the fridge
the oven´s on fire, the bathroom full of bleach
the dog barks at ghosts, his poo´s on the lawn
the witch from the south awakens at dawn.

willston lane 203 – live your life in agony!
willston lane 203 – there´s no better place to be.

the dryer is broken the lights they don´t work
while you´re trying to sleep the dog goes berserk.
there is no fun at all, not even Saturday night
and she makes it clear that you don´t have any rights

the shower is lethal, the kitchen is cold
the doors they bang at 6am
you walk down the stairs, you see the grin on her face
it´s way too much to take for a man

willston lane 203 – live your life in agony!
willston lane 203 – there´s no better place to be.
willston lane 203 – at least I kept your fucking key
willston lane 203 – oh no no!
Track Name: Take What You Need
Take what you need
words and music by Hans Hauser

Take what you need
Don’t take what you want
If you had to choose, what would it be?
Don’t search your heart - Oh, let it all go
Nothing’s gonna change for you

Feeling the pressure on my chest,
the floor seems to hug me tight.
The scratching of my pencil
sounds like music from a simpler place.
With all that I’ve learned, with all that I know,
how did I get here – down, on the floor?

Take what you need
Don’t take what you want
If you had to choose, what would it be?
Don’t search your heart - Oh, let it all go
Nothing’s gonna change for you

What is my purpose, what is my fate,
what are my goals, is it already to late?
Where are my answers, where is my guide,
where can I flourish, where can I hide?
With all that I’ve learned, (with) all that I know,
how did I get here – down, on the floor?

You’re chasing the rabbit, but the rabbit is you
No one applauds, no one envies you
Your duties are fictitious, your sprit is hazed
The heart has been fooled in your early days

Take what you need
Don’t take what you want
If you had to choose, what would it be?
Don’t search your heart - Oh, let it all go
Nothing’s gonna change for you
Track Name: A Golden Day
A Golden Day
Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar
Music by Hans Hauser

I Found you and I lost you,
All on a gleaming day.
The day was filled with sunshine,
And the land was full of May.

A golden bird was singing
Its melody divine,
I found you and I loved you,
And all the world was mine.

I found you and I lost you,
All on a golden day,
But when I dream of you, dear,
It is always brimming May.
