Angels Ride On Clouds: Lyrics by Martin Wimmer


Lyrics

1) Turn Your Music On

(C/L: Micha Voigt)

Spotlight  -  a dancer                      
swinging notes  -  a melody
sweet comfort  -  to a bleeding heart
in a year  -  uncertain
in the spot  -  a beating drum
a song can  -  take you away solemnly

to all the people : music be a healer
to all the people : let music in your heart
to all the people : music be a healer

aha  -  the flow, the breathing
aha  -  an instant feeling
aha  -  to awake
in the midst of a rhythm shake
in the light of eternal swing
so don´t forget to turn your music on

Click click  -  a transmission
transformation  -  and a vision
of a world  -  in urgent needs

to all the people : music be a healer
to all the people : let music in your heart
to all the people : music be a healer

aha  - a hug, a kissing
aha  -  a touch were missing
aha  -  to awake
in the midst of a rhythm shake
in the light of eternal swing
so don´t forget to turn your music on - turn your music on

to all the people : music be a healer
to all the people : let music in your heart
to all the people : music be a healer

aha  -  the flow, the breathing
aha  -  an instant feeling
aha  -  to awake
in the midst of a rhythm shake
in the light of eternal swing
in the golden age
the sweat, the beat, the dance, the trance
people of the world
don´t forget to turn your music on -
turn your music on - turn your music on

2) My Moderne

(C/L: Matthias Haupt)

I got these sounds in my head
burning like fire
played with a stolen guitar like a K
an old story from a shire

I played it everywhere, throughout the days
in Lousiana
And tryed to puzzle scenes
from a soul-swamp to attain my Nirvana

With a broken speaker
and Les' re-recording set
I found the sweetest melodies
in my broken shed

It comes out of here, throughout the night
like fireworks wich took shape
I played the songs down to magnetic tapes

But they were destroyed in a night of hell and decay
burning in the fire
And it's just you
It's you
me an you
we rested here - ...in desolation

And they burned
All these tapes in one flame
gone to where
where they came

it's o.k.
It's o.k.

It's o.k.
if you will stay with me
and play with me
and stay with me

my guitar
my guitar
my guitar

 

3) Prisoner

(C/L: Micha Voigt)

 
Hold me – cause there`s something going on
sing for me - cause there`s something going on
like in a spiderweb
I'm ready but I cannot move, ready but I cannot move
I can't move on


Drink with me - cause there's something going on
pray for me - cause there's something going on
like in a tigers cage
I'm ready but I dare not breath, ready but I dare not breath
I can't breath in

Shelter me - cause there's something going on
run with me - cause there's something going on
like in an ocean deep
I'm ready but I cannot swim, ready but I cannot swim
I can't swim home

I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner – cursed and chained
I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner – stuck and bound
I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner – behind there walls
I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner – help me out

Like in a thunderstorm
I'm ready but I cannot fly, ready but I cannot fly
can't fly away

I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner  – behind these walls
I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner  – cursed and chained
I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner – help me out
I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner


4) Into Fog
(C/L: Matthias Haupt)

 

Make it or leave it alone         
and pick up the phone                       
try to find the answer on your own          

Stumble in suspense           
a hallway miles long                       
the carers here to ward you             
they fear you are not that strong

The vessel belayed in the dock
you' ll be back on board
and the ship leaves george harbor
into fog

You cannot release him
and pick up the phone
background noises but he is all alone

The truth in my mind
a hard stroke in his life
its not a lack of love, he is still my husband and i am his wife

The vessel belayed in the dock
You' ll be back on board
and the ship leaves George Harbor
into fog

And that's it
nothing to be found
all missing answers out of reach

The times are gone
he has left us here and there
answerless and without a care

Now i am leaving
leaving the gate
to fly away
to fly away

What will this ship down there at the sea
may carry

The vessel belayed in the dock
she ran back on board
and the ship left george harbor
into fog

And the ship left george harbor

And the ship left george harbor

5) On The Sea (Instrumental)
(C: Matthias Haupt)


6) The Crazy Hatmaker
(C/L: Micha Voigt)

 

Let's meet the crazy hatmaker
and see what he can do for you
let's meet the crazy hatmaker
he sets up new rules just for you

He shows you with a blinking smile
how wheels can turn the other way
with sparkling eyes he sings you songs
in non existing magic tongues

and in a wink – don't hesitate
he will present the magic hat
that takes away all weight of life
and you will dream to be his wife

to meet the crazy hatmaker
not easy to achieve
your heart's on fire immediately
be careful he's a thief

Let's meet the crazy hatmaker …. be his wife

Jump into the hole – jump into the night
Jump into the hole – jump into the night
Jump into the hole – jump into the night
Jump into the hole – he's waiting for you 


Jump into the hole – jump into the night
Jump into the hole – jump into the night
Jump into the hole – jump into the night
Jump into the hole – he's waiting for you 

to meet the crazy hatmaker
not easy to achieve
your heart's on fire immediately
be careful he's a thief

7) Angels Ride On Clouds

(C/L: Micha Voigt/Martin Wimmer)

There's a highway up to heaven
where the angels ride on clouds
and when it rains, it just means
they have an eye on you
sprinkle their love down

There's a highway up to heaven
where the angels ride on clouds
and when it rains, it just means
they have an eye on you
sprinkle their love down

We're getting into gear
we'll drive the bad outta here
we're getting into gear
we'll drive the bad outta here
every raindrop on your skin
says keeping up the chin
we're getting into gear
we'll drive the bad outta here

There's a highway up to heaven
where the angels ride on clouds
and when it rains, it just means
they have an eye on you
sprinkle their love down

Making way for the sunshine
making way for the sunshine
making way for the sunshine
Making way
