STUDIOVÁ ALBA - RABBIT DON'T COME EASY

Rabbit Don't Come Easy

Rabbit Don't Come Easy se po výletě do temnot vrací zpět ke stylu typickému HELLOWEEN. Bohužel nepřináší nic nového do světa tykví, ba naopak a hodně se opakuje a místy i celkem nudí, ale vše má své + a -. Ty plusy vidím za 1) v kytaristovi S. Gerstnerovi, který se skladatelsky ukázal jako velmi dobrý (Open Your Life, Sun For The World) a za 2) v Markusovi, jeho kousky (Hell Was Made In Heaven, Far Away) mě velice mile překvapily a potěšili. Když to shrnu RDCE má skvělý zvuk a 4 - 5 skvělých písní a to je asi tak vše. Tím nechci shazovat jeho kvalitu, ale poked čekáte další The Dark Ride, tak nečekejte a jestli čekáte něco mezi Time Of The Oath a Better Than Raw, tak čekáte správně.

Rabbit Don't Come Easy
JUST A LITTLE SIGN
(Deris)

Here I stand alone again
Hundreds all around
I didn't come here to make a friend
But to listen to the sound

Something's growing in my pants
As she looks into my eyes
Now I smile the whole damn night
But my dream it's cold as ice

It's time for just a little sign
It's time make believe the world is mine
It's time for just a little sign
It's time make believe the world is mine
Just a little sign!

Should I dare to talk to her
But wat is it I woould say
Surley I look like a clown
From the ?? on my face

It's time for just a little sign
It's time make believe the world is mine
It's time for just a little sign
It's time make believe the world is mine
Just a little sign!

Whoa oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Whoa oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

It's time for just a little sign
It's time make believe the world is mine
It's time for just a little sign
It's time make believe the world is mine
It's time, for just a little sign
It's time make believe the world is mine
Just a little sign!



OPEN YOUR LIFE
(Lyrics: Deris / Music: Gernster | Deris)

Do you know what there is
Just behind your wall?
Do you hate what you can't see
On the spinning ball?

Ignorant and wasted
That's what you are
But you could be so much more
Listen your TV
Believe the words
And You're dumber than before
Try to see the real picture
Train your mind
To read between the lines
Take your level higher
That is your way
Just get up
Start out today

Time seems an endless road
When we are young
It don't need a genius
To know taht it's wrong

Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life
Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life
Rise now, rise now
Feel the new drive
Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life

Full synthetic anger
That's what you breathe
It's a strategy for all
Telling poeple stories
And bed time tales
But the real important false
So you grow the wrong feed
Inside your head
To the will of the modern priest
Supervised agression
Instructed to sleep
That ‚s the devil that you breed

All that we learn
Is just one point fo view
Out there in the world
It may not become true
Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life
Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life
Rise now, rise now
Feel the new drive
Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life

Time seems an endless road
When we are young
It don't need a genius
To know taht it's wrong

Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life
Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life
Rise now, rise now
Feel the new drive
Hey now, hey now
Open Your Life

Solo: Sascha



THE TUNE
(Lyrics & Music: Weikath)

Sometimes there's no tomorrow
sometimes you hate the day
You feel there may be something that
intends to screw with fate

Take a look at what's around you
Each time you watch the news
Your mind gets set by someone's will
A template you can't choose

Love and desire, dry ice or fire
Don't you just want to flee their magic spell

No mercy for the nations
two people are at war
Beliefs divide the dream
they share of peace and harmony

Their eyes look up to heaven,
address our God in prayers
Their souls exposed, they may decease
by emperor's decree

Look, how they're crying
There's no denying
Now change the channel
On remote control
And the tune goes
on eternally
For those who share the fear
On a frequency for you and me
You stare but you can't see
You hear and you agree

We're all here for a reason
So we can't just hang around
There's so much left to see and learn
Make way for common ground

And those who head the wrong way
Will rate as minor class

As castaways they'll render fools
When the horsemen come to rule

Strike the last hour
In their glass towers
Infinite lust has
Made the curtain fall
And the tunes goes
on eternally
For those who long to hear
And those freaks sense they're superior
We're hypnotized, you see
They wave and we agree

Solo: Michael | S & M | Sascha



NEVER BE A STAR
(Lyrics & Music: Deris)

No matters how big we are
We dream of home
The place where we all belong
Therefore this song

We are who are
We'll never be a star
We are where we are
But we'll never be a star

No time to see all our friends
There where we are
Ten thousand miles are quite long
And much too far

We are who are
We'll never be a star
We are where we are
But we'll never be a star



LIAR
(Lyrics: Deris / Music: Grosskopf | Deris | Gerstner)

As a dance she's undercover
Won the big Don to be her lover
Had to make him tell her his secrets
About his business and about his street-rats
She had to become his trustful right hand
The burean needed the files with his brand
She really was a damn good actress
Everybody called her ~Big Don's Mistress~
Oh it's just a show
Put on for love
How could he know
Liar, liar
Sweet desire
Liar, liar
Who are you
Liar, liar
Play with fire
Liar, liar
Learn to truth
She sent the messages to her office
The Don reckoned he will face a Judas
So he told her of a damned deceiver
Secured, in her he was a strong believer
He confessed to her being sick of all this
How he suffered in the deepest abyss
But saw in her the wish for a new life
To escape from there and make her his wife
No, not just a show
Put on for love
How could she know
Liar, liar
Sweet desire
Liar, liar
Who are you
Liar, liar
Play with fire
Liar, liar
Learn to truth
It had somehow
She had not seen how
Felt the bullet still flying
Straight into her heart
Tore her old world apart
Now to live on she first had to die
There's a reason to live
There's a reason to live
and let die
There's a reason to give
There's a reason to give
in a lie
Liar, liar
Sweet desire
Liar, liar
Who are you
Liar, liar
Play with fire
Liar, liar
You learned your truth now

SUN FOR THE WORLD
(Lyrics: Deris / Music: Gerstner)

Forty million years ago
There was a boy called Leif
His skin was grey, his eyes were red
His tentacles counted five
Grown up in a normal house
His parents' beloved son
There never was the slightest sign
He'd be the chosen one
Leif [No!]
Help us [No!]
Shelter us
Shelter us

He turns into the
Sun for the world
Sun for the world
What would I say, would it be me
Sun for the world
Sun for the world
What would you do
Would it be you, my friend

Down on earth we see a star
Dying in its light
Then suddenly it all explodes
A new sun shines with Leif

Leif [No!]
Help us [No!]

Shelter us
Shelter us

He turns into the
Sun for the world
Sun for the world
What would I say, would it be me
Sun for the world
Sun for the world
What would you do
Would it be you, my friend

Solo: Sascha



DON'T STOP BEING CRAZY
(Lyrics & Music: Deris)

You're the one
I would pick out
in a million
You're the one
I would wish for as
the friend of my life
If the whole world decided for a color
Would pixels be any different in you

Brave and smart against the rules
You smile upon the fools
I follow where you go
I want you to know

Don't stop being crazy
Wherever you go
Don't stop being crazy
It's a lie
It's a lie
It's a lie we could not learn to fly
Oh no
Don't stop being crazy

When you walk you walk higher than
the others
When you talk you talk merciless the
bothering truth
Everybody seems remote-controlled
nowadays
Only you have a frequency far beyond
their ways

Still and strong you walk alone
Don't wonder where they've gone
I'll follow where you go
I want you to know

Don't stop being crazy
Wherever you go
Don't stop being crazy
It's a lie
It's a lie
It's a lie we could not learn to fly
Oh no
Don't stop being crazy

Solo: Sascha



DO YOU FEEL GOOD
(Lyrics & Music: Weikath)

When we were lovers you
called me names
But time goes on and you were gone
I got told you're a big shot
for the ties
And take it from behind

Now you took a new flat
in a different town
And rumors are you're wealthy now
For that high class dress
Shows you earn well
Where strangers come and go

Do you feel good, do you feel fine
Did you achieve what you had in mind
Do you live cool, not too confined
What can you tell this old heart
of mine

Some busty companion claims
to know you well
She does night shift at some
place somewhere
Said there's no one who has fun
your way
in Moscow, Rome, L.A.

I wish I knew
Where you are now
Why don't you try another call

Well I got no objections
I'm old enough, you know
But it's weird this night I seem
to know you
better than before

Solo: Sascha



HELL WAS MADE IN HEAVEN
(Lyrics: Grosskopf | ?Deris? / Music: Gerstner)

There was a time
Eating your mind
Eating your heart and your soul
Down to the bone
Always alone
Nobody waiting at home

Now allow that we unite our fires
Shout it out
Give yourself to me
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Hell was made in heaven
I was made for you
Hell was made in heaven
Made for loving you in sin

Ten years ago
You made the vow
Promised your life and your love
Of all that you've paid
Nothing returned
What is enough is enough

Now allow that we unite our fires
Shout it out
Give yourself to me
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Hell was made in heaven
I was made for you
Hell was made in heaven
Made for loving you in sin

Solo: Sascha | Michael | S & M



BACK AGAINST THE WALL
(Lyrics: Deris / Music: Deris | Weikath)

Do you see now where I stand,
my friend?
Will you offer me your helping hand?
And will you cross the void and speak the words?
Rush, I'm beggin' you, it hurts
It hurts, it hurts, yoes it hurts

I'm standing back against the wall
Dare I to move I got to fall
My heart is blinded by the light
I close my eyes forever
May not turn left,
may not turn right
I sense a gap to every side
I'm standing back against the wall
back against the wall

I can hear it coming closer now
Blaring silence of the dark below
Under my feet I feel it slide like sand
A frequent crushing down
Again, again, again and again

I'm standing back against the wall
Dare I to move I got to fall
My heart is blinded by the light
I close my eyes forever
May not turn left,
may not turn right
I sense a gap to every side
I'm standing back against the wall
back against the wall

Will you cross the void of pride?
Then speak the words
Rush, I'm beggin' you, it hurts
it hurts, it hurts, yes it hurts

I'm standing back against the wall
Dare I to move I got to fall
My heart is blinded by the light
I close my eyes forever
May not turn left,
may not turn right
I sense a gap to every side
I'm standing back against the wall
back against the wall



LISTEN TO THE FLIES
(Lyrics: Deris / Music: Gerstner | Deris)

Why do you run?
Answer me
Whom do you follow?
Talk to me
What is hidden
That I cannot see?
What is the prize?
You try to hide from me?

I see you dying...

...and I listen
...and I listen
Listen to the flies
Listen to the flies

Who is the idol
You obey?
Give me a reason
Why you scared of me
Have you ever been punished?
Or never had pride?
I see you circle
Round and round the shite

...I see you dying
...I see you dying
And listen to the flies
And listen to the flies

Solo: Sascha



NOTHING TO SAY
(Lyrics & Music: Weikath)

When I got told the other day, you said
won't it be nice
To spend some time and share a look
there was no thinking twice

The die was cast no time to lose as much
as one can say
Didn't hesitate to call you back and
things were under way

And if it wasn't for the circumstance and
well against all odds
Well that's enough for feeling great the
best we could have got
And just in case there's something wrong
so much with you to share
Much better anyways than watch
or stroll round everywhere

Nothing to say we got in there
A long long way right in our hands

Nothing to say - now we can use all we
give all of our loving and affection
We'll have our way like we always do - nothing to say

You called me up the other day just
when I thought you would
And asked if we could break apart as
things ain't been too good
I swallowed hard and got
that feeling I know it's called unease
The confidence I've kept so well just came down
piece by piece

That's all it takes it's sad but done no
way to disagree
Time takes toll and that's the way it's
always gonna be

Cos it wasn't yet the circumstance but
more than just a test
There's a little left for feeling great and all
I need some rest
[There's] not a single glimpse of hope well
someone took my place
It's yet another turn for me [I'll be]
messin' round everywhere

Nothing to say we got it there
A long long way fell off our hands

Nothing to say - so you refuse all I give
all of my loving and affection
I'll make my way like I always do - nothing to say

So you refuse all I give all of my loving and affection
oh, oh
so you refuse all I give all of my loving and affection
oh, oh, oh

Solo: Sascha | Michael



FAR AWAY
(Grosskopf)

We are gifted to be scared
We need stacks of weapons to survive
Marching for religious reasons
Marching on and on to save our lives

When will it have an end
How can we live in harmony
How can I understand the way things gonna be

Take me far away and set my spirit higher
Take me far away and set my soul on fire
And I pretend to understand
Whatever comes I'll be there for you

Genetically influenced
Is our harvest how far can we go
Someday my own clone will come
Take away my wife how could I know

Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I could just go insane
But when I see your smile it makes me strong again

Take me far away and set my spirit higher
Take me far away and set my soul on fire
And I pretend to understand
Whatever comes I'll be there for you
