THE BALLAD OF PHIL CONNOLLY
(words & music by C.Volf)
Inspiriert von Geschichten aus dem irischen Folk.
( 07.07.2002 )

It was long time ago there came a ship to the shore
With a scared looking, black bearded man
And as he stepped on the land with just a bag in his hand
He felt strange, hungry and tired

So he gazed arround until he found
A dry little place for the night
He thought of the country that he had left behind
So wild, windy and rough

And as he fell asleep, he saw Mary so sweet
And knew the vow he promised her to keep
She begged him to stay but he went away
Full of hope he´d return some day

He dreamed of a life with Mary for his wife
And a farm in the County Claire
And with fire in his breast he headed to the west
Expected some fortune to win

He went on his way and joined a trailer the next day
Up ahead to the City of St. Louis
Got a job near the town, he was hired by Mr. Crown
For a credit he had needed to survive

He worked in Crown´s mine and spent most of the time
In the cold, darkness and dust
And as time had passed, he got ill at last
But hadn´t earned enough money to leave

Then one night in despair he stole a horse from the fair
And rode back for home to the coast
As it was noticed, Mr. Crown gathered his men all arround
Ordered to catch him dead or alive

And when they had reached him not far out of the town
He was stopped with one single shot
As he laid down in the sand, he felt Mary hold his hand
Then he closed his eyes and died

And Mary stood there, on the Cliffs of Mohare
Watching the sea with tears in her eyes

DOPAMINE JUNKY

(words & music by C.Volf) 
Für alle Frauen, die von Männern betrogen wurden.
( 21.11.2002 )

You get excited when he´s walking by
Can't look him straight in the eye
Cherish being near on his side
Your intention, you can´t hide

But I know how the story ends
Are you content to be second hand, yeah
You´ve been treated the same way before
And couldn´t stand it any more

Refrain:

A dopamine junky, collecting female hearts
Living for passion, using sex like a drug
Huging, kissing, wearing his heart on a sleve
When he calls you Baby, he's on his way out
He´s going to leave

He´s gettin´ strong when you´re feelin´ weak
Aren´t you ashamed of the way you creep, yeah
He is the centre you´re turning 'round
But call it quits, it's no use being bound

Refrain:

A dopamine junky, collecting female hearts
Living for passion, using sex like a drug
Huging, kissing, wearing his heart on a sleve
When he calls you Baby, he's on his way out
He´s going to leave

He´s the type of guy
Who looks you in the eye, so deep
He tells you some lie
Pretending to be shy, how sweet, yeah


Refrain:

A dopamine junky, collecting female hearts
Living for passion, using sex like a drug
Huging, kissing, wearing his heart on a sleve
When he calls you Baby, he's on his way out

A dopamine junky, collecting female hearts
Living for passion, using sex like a drug
Huging, kissing, wearing his heart on a sleve
When he calls you Baby, he's on his way out

He's on his way out
He's on his way out

Didn´t you get it
Didn´t you get it
Didn´t you get it
I hope you got it

FROZEN
(words & music by C.Volf) 
Das Ende einer Beziehung, erzählt in Metaphern aus der Natur.
(15.02.2003)

Snow is falling, I'm taking my bag
Walking alone through the night
Hearing you call in the cold outside
The earth is frozen tonight
The earth is frozen tonight

Days were warm a short time ago
And we bathed in the sun
Didn´t take care that the sunset would come
The earth is frozen tonight
The earth is frozen tonight

Refrain:

Oh, oh, it´s easy to win
Oh, oh, but hard to lose

Oh, oh, it´s easy to win
Oh, oh, but hard to lose

A strong current dragged us along
We were floating away
The temperature dropped but we didn´t swim
The water´s frozen tonight
The water´s frozen tonight

Refrain:

Oh, oh, it´s easy to win
Oh, oh, but hard to lose

Oh, oh, it´s easy to win
Oh, oh, but hard to lose

The fields of battle are dusty and bare
We stamped the grain to the ground
It takes much time to plant something new
The earth is frozen tonight
The earth is frozen tonight

Refrain:

Oh, oh, it´s easy to win
Oh, oh, but hard to lose

Oh, oh, it´s easy to win
Oh, oh, but hard to lose

The earth is frozen tonight
The earth is frozen tonight
The earth is frozen tonight
Our hearts are frozen tonight

THE GREEN HAT
(words & music by C.Volf)
Der grüne Hut: Synonym für unsere Ziele und Konsumgüter.

I could clearly understand
What the waiter´s telling me
`Bout the green hat on the wall,
That I, that I could see
And the hat was watching me
As if it´s meant to say
"For ten pints I´ll be yours,
Take me home today."

The man who´s looking over
Thought about undressing me
I wanted to wear the hat
To feel pretty, proud and free
Ready for a sacrifice
I invited him to stay
We drank ten pints, I got the hat
And took them home that day.

Refrain:

I feel pretty,
I feel fine,
I am silly,
But the green hat is mine

I awoke the next day
With the green hat on my head
When I got up to the mirror,
I was a little bit afraid
Annoyed at the picture
A lot of doubts rang in my brain
Was it me, was it the hat,
Or the stranger in my bed ?

Refrain:

I feel pretty,
I feel fine,
I am silly,
But the green hat is mine

I feel pretty,
I feel fine,
I am silly,
But the green hat is mine

Lately I found the green hat,
It was dirty, dent and grey
and remembered the stranger, Jim,
Who wanted to stay
Then I threw the green hat
To the rubbish down the floor
`Cause I´ve got a pink hat now,
Don´t need the green one anymore

Refrain:

I feel pretty,
I feel fine,
I am silly,
But the green hat is mine

I feel pretty,
I feel fine,
I am silly,
But the green hat is mine

The green hat is mine,
The green hat is mine,
Yeah, the green hat is mine

It´s mine, mine, mine,
Yes, it´s mine, mine, mine
It´s mine, mine, mine,
The green hat is mine

I am silly,
I am silly,
Yes, I am silly,
But the green hat is mine

I NEED SOME TIME
(words & music by C.Volf)
Eine Kritik über unsere hektische Gesellschaft, entstanden nach einem Chris Jones Konzert.

Too many people have lots of expectations
No excuses for the bad show
Too much business, too many conferences
I´m going up and down and high and low

Drivin´ down the highway too fast to be in time
Little money for the job I do
Too much burden, the worries make me suffer
I can´t sleep at night when I´m feelin´ blue

Refrain:

Who´s gonna win the competition
Who will succeed
When will we find some recreation
Let´s reduce the speed

I will take the consequences
I will resign
I don´t need any more possessions
I need some time

I need some time
Yeah, I need some time

Polititians plan financial operations
More investments in the industries
Again more taxes to decrease the lack of money
It´s an infectious economical disease

Refrain:

Who´s gonna win the competition
Who will succeed
When will we find some recreation
Let´s reduce the speed

I will take the consequences
I will resign
I don´t need any more possessions
I need some time

I need some time
Yeah, I need some time

Refrain:

Who´s gonna win the competition

STAY A WHILE
(words & music by C.Volf)
Eindrücke aus der irischen Kleinstadt Dingle.

The waves are rolling evenly one by one
The wind is gently surrounding me, I come undone
The bay lies quietly sleeping beneath the hills of green
I watch the rising sun complete a phenomenal scene

A fishing-boat that was stranded years ago
Will tell you its fatal story, if you want to know
Some fishermen return with their catch at the break of day
I hear the seagulls shouting all along the bay

Refrain:

I want to stay a while and rest in your heart
I want to dive into to the sea to meet the dolphin, yeah, yeah
I want to climb upon your hills to watch the ocean open wide,
so wide

Clouds are passing quickly above the lanes
Shops are lovely placed between charmy coloured frames
A glimpse of celtic spirit expands to a glowing light
When I listen to the reels at a trad session at night

The waves are rolling evenly one by one
The wind is gently surrounding me, I come undone
It´s a tremendous view like a great piece of art
I take up some shells of mussles and then I depart

Refrain:

I want to stay a while and rest in your heart
I want to dive into to the sea to meet the dolphin, yeah, yeah
I want to climb upon your hills to watch the ocean open wide,
so wide

I want to stay a while and rest in your heart
I want to dive into to the sea to meet the dolphin, yeah, yeah
I want to climb upon your hills to watch the ocean open wide,
so wide

CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST
(words & music by C.Volf)
Über die Rückkehr zu den Wurzeln, inspiriert von L.R. Burnside.

You should be going out to see
Don´t turn arround, don´t look at me
You are free, young and easy
And you never ever can tease me

Look for adventure, that´s your chance
Don´t waste your time with making plans
Watch the sun, smooth and warm
Conquer the whole world in a storm

Refrain:

Hey, hey, you´ll get
Hey, hey, to know
Hey, hey, the taste
Of a continental breakfast
You´ll cherish everywhere you go

Hope you´ll come back when you think it´s time
You can be sure that you´re still on my mind
Go your speed, fast or slow
But when you settle down, let me know

Refrain:

Hey, hey, you´ll get
Hey, hey, to know
Hey, hey, the taste
Of a continental breakfast
You´ll cherish everywhere you go

Yeah,yeah, you´ll get to know
Everywhere you go
To know, to know, to know, to know
Everywhere you go

Refrain:

Hey, hey, you´ll get
Hey, hey, to know
Hey, hey, the taste
Of a continental breakfast
You´ll cherish everywhere you go

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Everywhere you go

ONCE I THOUGHT
(words & music by C.Volf)
Ein Blues-Experiment, entstanden nach einem Kati Kern Konzert.

Once I thought it would be different
Having you by my side
Once I thought it would be right
To please you

Once I thought I could deal with
Your foolish, self-centred mind
Once I thought I would be able
To reach you

Refrain:

Now I´m through with you, call me no more
I´m not a fool so don´t play with me any more
I´m not a servant, who cleans up your dirt
I´m not a jumping jack, I´m more than you deserve

Once I thought you were amazing
Your body, your face, your smile
Once I thought that I was lucky
To find you

Once I thought I´d be your baby
But you had more than just one
Once I thought that I would always
Hate you

Refrain:

Now I´m through with you, call me no more
I´m not a fool so don´t play with me any more
I´m not a servant, who cleans up your dirt
I´m not a jumping jack, I´m more than you deserve

Once I thought it wouldn´t hurt you
When I said bye, bye, bye
Once I thought it would not be easy
To leave you

Refrain:

Now I´m through with you, call me no more
I´m not a fool so don´t play with me any more
I´m not a servant, who cleans up your dirt
I´m not a jumping jack, I´m more than you deserve

Once I thought I would often
Lie in my bed and cry
But all at once I lost a burden
That woed me

But all at once I lost a burden
That woed me

But all at once I lost a burden
That woed me

But all at once I lost a burden
that set me free

READY FOR EXTINCTION
(words & music by C.Volf)
Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema Krieg.

Sittin´ in the trench, loading his gun
Trained to attack at the fire-line
He knows just one rule: to kill or to die
He never thought of ringing the bell

Drilled to resist hunger and cold
Pushing ahead to the offence
Executing commands without any doubt
Fighting a war he´ll never win

Oh
What do we see, what do we say
What do we want, what do we pray ?

O-o-oh

Refrain :

We insist on a solution
We don´t make a compromise
We demand a revolution
We are ready for extinction

Lost in a town, that´s razed to the ground
Escaped from attacks she´s frightened of bombs
Her home destroyed, her family dead
Her heart of stone can deal with the pain

She tries to be brave, she wants to survive
No food to eat and no gas to heat
Mistreated and raped as a living toy
But she will get even on the judgement day

Oh
What do we see, what do we say
What do we want, what do we pray ?

O-o-oh

Refrain:

We insist on a solution
We don´t make a compromise
We demand a revolution
We are ready for extinction

O-o-o-o-oh

Refrain:

We insist on a solution
We don´t make a compromise
We demand a revolution
We are ready for extinction

We are ready for extinction

We are ready for extinction

We committed the extinction

TIMES ARE CHANGING
(words & music by C.Volf)
In Erinnerung an einen Freund

Once so close then so far apart
We couldn´t walk along the same way
The short good-bye hurt for a while
Until we found a new love to stay

You can´t save the passion
You can´t save your youth
You can´t make those moments to last

Take up the challenge
Take up your chance
Don´t hunt your memories, forget the past

`Cause

Refrain:

Times are changing
Times are changing
Times are changing
Times are changing

Your girl-friend lives in the neighbourhood
I see you come and I see you go
I wonder whether the child in you
Is gettin´ up or starting to grow

You can´t save the passion
You can´t save your youth
You can´t make those moments to last

Take up the challenge
Take up your chance
Don´t hunt your memories, forget the past

`Cause

Refrain:

Times are changing

WHEN I´M GONE
(words & music by C.Volf)
zum Thema Respektlosigkeit

I´m concerned about your problems
But don´t take them out on me
I´m running out of patience
with your rude hostility

If you want me to stay your friend
you´d change your wicked ways

Refrain:

´Cause when I´m gone
I´ll be gone forever
And when I´m through
There´s no reason to stay

´Cause when I´m gone
I´ll be gone forever
And when I´m through
There´s no reason to stay

No reason to stay
No reason to stay
No reason to stay

You are fuzzy and you´re selfish
I´m fed up with your claims
You don´t show appreciation
But you want me to meet your aims

If I´m to be an employee
Give me responsibility

Refrain:

´Cause when I´m gone
I´ll be gone forever
And when I´m through
There´s no reason to stay

´Cause when I´m gone
I´ll be gone forever
And when I´m through
There´s no reason to stay

No reason to stay
No reason to stay
No reason to stay

Damn, tell me, what do you expect of me
I do my very best
Stop screaming, your nasty words are killing me
I´m longing for respect

Refrain:

´Cause when I´m gone
I´ll be gone forever
And when I´m through
There´s no reason to stay

´Cause when I´m gone
I´ll be gone forever

NOT IN VAIN
(words & music by C.Volf)
Woran kann man Erfolg im Leben messen ? An Statussymbolen,
oder am Lächeln seiner Mitmenschen ? Ein Song zum Nachdenken.

You walk along on the brink of ruin
But you don´t dare to step aside
You want to live, but you´re an addict
And life has changed your mind

You raise your hand to reach the light
That brightens other heads
You ask yourself what life´s about
When you don´t get a chance

Refrain:

If you could manage
To make someone happy
It was not in vain
No, it was not in vain

If you were able
To gain someone´s smile
It was not in vain
It was not in vain

You tried to be a world changer
But now you walk on broken dreams
You curse the faking busibodies,
Who took away your belief

You raise your hand to reach the light
That brightens other heads
You ask yourself what life´s about
When you don´t get a chance

Refrain:

If you could manage
To make someone happy
It was not in vain
No, it was not in vain

If you were able
To gain someone´s smile
It was not in vain

CHILD OF THE SEVENTIES
(words & music by C.Volf) 

Wir sind Sklaven einer Yuppie-Gesellschaft. Die Kreativität, auf dessen Fundament
die persönliche Freiheit steht, ist von Pflichten untergraben.
Wo sind die Gedanken, Träume und Visionen ?
Wo bleibt die Individualität und Ästhetik ?
Die Philosophie der Siebziger-Generation gerät in Vergessenheit.
Bewahren wir den Rebell im Kopf und öffnen wir uns der Kunst !
Schon Friedrich Schiller schrieb: "Kunst ist eine Tochter der Freiheit".


Caught up in a dirty town
Played on concrete grounds
Lived in a dark, small case
Longed for little more space

Went to an uptown school
Was taught to play by the rules
Studied for a bigwig job
Was meant to be on top

She was a weary young girl
In a hollow world of bourgoisie
She felt attracted by the
Rebel generation of the seventies

Refrain:

Blue jeans, black boots
And wearin´ silver rings
Long hair, leather jacket,
She´s a child of the seventies

Writing songs, painting pictures
And dreamin´ of love and peace
Tryin´ to find her freedom,
She´s a child of the seventies

Urban clowns passed her way
Shallow minds disguised in grey
Quewed up in a row
Waited for her time to go

She was a weary young girl
In a hollow world of bourgoisie
She felt attracted by the
Rebel generation of the seventies

Refrain:

Blue jeans, black boots
And wearin´ silver rings
Long hair, leather jacket,
She´s a child of the seventies

Writing songs, painting pictures
And dreamin´ of love and peace
Tryin´ to find her freedom,
She´s a child of the seventies

She´s a child of the seventies
She´s a child of the seventies
She´s a child of the seventies
She´s a child of the seventies

She´s a child of the seventies
She´s a child of the seventies
She´s a child of the seventies
She´s a child of the seventies

FLYING HIGH
(words & music by C.Volf) 

Das "Münchhausen"-Lied.
(Die Metapher des Fliegens steht für Befreiung bzw. Problemlösung )

Who can make me feel peaceful when I am
An angel of pain
Who can I rely on when I feel
The chaos inside my brain

Too many times I kneeled and hung
My head in the clouds
Avoided a conversation, shut up
Instead of shouting out loud

Free your mind
Find a way out
Free your mind
Find a way out
Free your mind
Time´s running out

Refrain:
Open wings to fly
Rising up to touch the sky
Sailing on, by and by
Like a bird, flying high

When I think of all the lovers I
Kicked out of bed
Compared to the present I admit
They were the best that I had

One step forward, two steps back I go
Totally insane
I´m out of control my life is a
Picture without a frame

Free your mind
Find a way out
Free your mind
Find a way out
Free your mind
Time´s running out

Refrain:
Open wings to fly
Rising up to touch the sky
Sailing on, by and by
Like a bird, flying high

Free your mind
Find a way out
Free your mind
Find a way out
Free your mind
Time´s running out

Refrain:
Open wings to fly
Rising up to touch the sky
Sailing on, by and by
Like a bird, flying high

Open wings to fly
Rising up to touch the sky
Sailing on, by and by
Like a bird, flying high

Like a bird, flying high
Like a bird, flying high
Like a bird, flying high

SILVERBACK
(words & music by C.Volf) 

über die Berggorillas und die menschlichen Konflikte in Ruanda
inspiriert durch einen Reisebericht von Freunden und ein Buch über Dian Fossey

Only a few of giant apes
Left far off civilisation
The cry of jungle in her heart
She chose to live in isolation

She headed out to deepest green
To explore our evolution
Shot her gun to defend
The apes resort from devastation

Refrain:
Silverback, peaceful giant
Take a look in his eye
His life´s safed
But Dian Fossey died

Conflicts we don´t understand
A civil war was raging
Pygmees exiled from their homes
Woodland blocked for reservation

Refrain:
Silverback, peaceful giant
Take a look in his eye
His life´s safed
So many people died

Lots of tourists on the path
To discover the wild nature
A chance for animal and man
To start into a hopeful future

Refrain:
Silverback, peaceful giant
Take a look in his eye
His life´s safed
But Dian Fossey died

Silverback, peaceful giant
Take a look in his eye
His life´s safed
So many people died

So many people died
So many people died
So many people died
So many people died

UP THE HILL UND DURCH´N WOID
(words & music by: C.Volf/Johann Georg Hofbauer)

Die Uhr tickt, das Leben verrinnt, während wir uns lieber in einem Strom von Problemen und Nebensächlichkeiten treiben lassen und in Gefahr begeben darin unterzugehen, anstatt uns die Mühe zu machen nachzudenken, uns nach festem Boden umzuschauen, um diesen zu ergraben, damit unsere Gedanken und Visionen wachsen und blühen können.

Die Schönheit des Lebens hängt immer vom Blickwinkel des Betrachters ab. Wer bereit ist, seinen Blickwinkel zu verändern, wird an Ecken und Kanten stoßen, aber auch staunen über seine Entdeckungen. In diesem Sinne.....


Creeping from a distance
Unexpected, irrevocable
My heart´s crashed in a treadmill
Longing for revenge on bended knee

Diving in a dreamworld
Passing problems, big and unresolved
Struggling ´cause I´m drawning
I´m in the calm before the storm

Refrain:
Up the hill und durch´n Woid
Up the hill und durch´n Woid
oamoi hoaß und oamoi koit
schau ma wia da Würfl foit

Maunchmoi mächt i stehbleib´n
Maunchmoi mocht des ois kan Sinn
Maunchmoi woaß i söwa net
Wos i tua und wer i bin

De Saunduhr hob i umdraht
Und die Kärndln rieseln vü zu schnö
Hinta mir wird´s laugsaum finsta
Owa vor mir wird´s nimma hö

Refrain:
Up the hill und durch´n Woid
Up the hill und durch´n Woid
oamoi hoaß und oamoi koit
schau ma wia da Würfl foit

City full of outbacks
Independent but ridiculous
Victims of obsession
Digging for answers not for gold

Refrain:
Up the hill und durch´n Woid
Up the hill und durch´n Woid
oamoi hoaß und oamoi koit
schau ma wia da Würfl foit

Up the hill und durch´n Woid
Up the hill und durch´n Woid

I´M SINGING
(words & music by C.Volf)

In a room full of strangers
I´m asking for the exit door
They don´t understand, what I´m searching for
I have to get out, I can´t stand it anymore

In this world of shallow people
I´m longing for a kindred soul
Who can comfort me, when I can´t sleep
Who´s healing me, when I´m feelin´ weak

Refrain:

I´m singing
Oh…………….

Take me to your peaceful heaven
Let me in to your higher grounds
I´m enchanted by your beautiful mind
I am speechless `cause you´re so kind

Refrain:

I´m singing
Oh………..

Bridge:
I´m glad to have your sympathy
But still you are a mystery
There´re many words unspoken
I´m careful, `cause my heart´s been broken

Refrain:

That´s why I´m singing
Oh…………….

Oh……………
Oh…………….

RESCUE

(words & music by C.Volf)


Nach einem Urlaub im Tonstudio (CD Produktion) war es schwer wieder in den Alltag zurückzukehren.


Somebody´s nice to me

But I´m unable to smile

The beat inside is hammering

I have to rest for a while

Somebody´s singing tunes

But I can´t hear the sound

I´m in MY world of music

captured and bound

Nothing´s quite as pure

Nothing else is real

Nothing´s quite as beautiful, I feel

Nothing to compare

Nothing more to lose

Nothing´s so intense, I am confused

Refrain:


Although it´s early afternoon

My mind is flying to the moon

But the devil´s waiting at the gate

Tonight I´m gonna lose my faith

A shiver´s running down my spine

Drinking another glass of wine

I am standing in the gloom

Waiting for rescue coming soon

Somebody´s crying loud

But I can´t ease the pain

I´m wrapped UP in myself

And I fear to go insane

Somebody´s loving me

But I don´t take a note

I lose my reason

Wearing songs like a coat

Nothing´s quite as pure

Nothing else is real

Nothing´s quite as beautiful, I feel

Nothing to compare

Nothing more to lose

Nothing´s so intense, I am confused

Refrain:


Although it´s early afternoon

My mind is flying to the moon

But the devil´s waiting at the gate

Tonight I´m gonna lose my faith

A shiver´s running down my spine

Drinking another glass of wine

I am standing in the gloom

Waiting for rescue coming soon

Nothing´s quite as pure

Nothing else is real

Nothing´s quite as beautiful, I feel

Nothing to compare

Nothing more to lose

Nothing´s so intense, I am confused


2x Refrain:


Although it´s early afternoon ……….

CRYING

(words & music by C.Volf)

Das Leben ist voller Veränderungen...


Must be off my head, he said

I shouldn´t feel constrained

I´d have to justify myself

but all I feel is faint

but all I feel is faint

Wanna kick my habit for

My soulmate´s lovely heart

Humbled I´m playin´ tough

Not granting a re-start

Not granting a re-start

Refrain:


Crying silently

Looking angiently

Feeling differently,

But all I feel ist faint

All I feel is faint

Paying for my greed of money

Knowing, coins are cold

All my spells are set in stone

Before I´m getting old

Before I´m getting old

Prisoned in a gilded cage

Dreaming of the sky

Uncomfortable and ill at ease

The bird will never fly

The bird will never fly


Refrain:


Crying silently

Looking angiently

Feeling differently,

The bird will never fly

The bird will never fly

Loving honestly

Dreaming constantly

Leaving quietly

The bird is gonna fly

The bird is gonna fly

Now the bird is gonna fly

The bird is gonna fly

He´s high up in the sky

Flying, flying high


Refrain:


Loving honestly

Dreaming constantly

Leaving quietly

The bird is gonna fly

The bird is gonna fly

Now the bird is gonna fly

The bird is gonna fly

He´s high up in the sky

Flying, flying high
