Killing Time 04:05
Killing Time I've been trying to talk to you But you know it's just like killing time We both would claim the truth But you know our love will be denied While we sit and watch it die This is killing, killing, killing time There were days, we had joy we had fun, That was then this is now and of us what has become We just sit and watch it die This is killing, killing, killing time Oh what have we done Witch turn we took was wrong You tell me what we were hoping to find While I was killing yours and you were killing mine We got into a tug'o'war, but you know We'll both be missing out None of us will win anything acting like down and outs While we sit and watch it die This is killing, killing, killing time There were days, we would laugh, we would cry Now we both find it hard just to look into each others eyes We just sit and watch it die This is killing, killing, killing time Yeah we sit and watch it die This is killing, killing, killing time
Live Before I Die I said I'd never toke no more I've said it all a hundred times before But the insight doesn't make things right When a colourful life is waiting outside And the moment I'm there it is waving good-bye and I Wanna live before I die I said I'd never drink no more I say it every night before I go But a small creek becomes a river running deep And it sparkles and shines down on the ground It's a magical sound, want to jump, want to dive and I Wanna live before I die Am I running from the charge The fear of getting lost So before I judge where I'm coming from I am still my fathers, still my mothers son I thought I'd never love no more I've thought it all a hundred times before
Spider In Our Bed What's inside us is ahead There's a spider in our bed When all you hear is something's wrong And all you say is I can live alone I can see you as a child Feeling so wrong while he's right When it's all your fault that daddy won't come home Then one way out is I can live alone I know you can and so can I You know it's hard to get things right You'll never know what it would be like 'Cause leaving now is keeping us from trying
Dive Asia One We'd have the time of our lives That's what we thought Soak up the sun Being swayed by the ocean On the Dive Asia One We were on upper deck when The stormfront came, the tocsin rang and everything Happened so fast, we smelled the abstracted gas Of the engine that broke down at last We were like astronauts cut off from assembly Drifting through the darkness of space Leaving behind who could not make it in time Like needles in a haystack that are never to find Five hours later two sailboats passed by We shouted and cried, we beckoned and tried so hard to Call their attention Agony rising inside
Declare War On Me To find something new In your helpless and sticky days I walked out on you Give me relief Punish me please When I picked you up You got used to be let down again You would not complain Spatter with mud It runs in the blood Declare war on me I can not stand to feel your need Make my tort be seen for all and For running out on you Please run me in I can deal with rage I can deal with you accusing me I long to put this straight Let justice prevail And shove me in jail I'm asking for war But you don't fight at all You don't impeach Or pass sentence on me, oh please
To My Father 04:09
To My Father Father I wouldn't say you failed In every way But if I remember right We never were that tight In any way When you held out your hand for peace and then You hit me in the face Father I wouldn't say You failed in every way Father I've got my own imperfections But I won't accept your brand Father I am no chump And I'm not all thumbs And you are not my friend Father I wouldn't say You screwed up everything But if I remember right You disregard a child To raise your self-esteem And so if I were you and I would have to look into Those ruthless eyes tomorrow I would be so ashamed And take all the blame Father I wouldn't say You failed
Torn Apart 03:24
Torn Apart I saw Sarah Noni and Corwin In the Rime the other day They both were hot and they hit the spot As soon as they hit the stage How could there be more beauty More spirit and more soul Than a voice you feel underneath your skin Keeps you from feeling small And I've been torn apart Made my way back home on commercial drive All of a sudden realized what I had missed Next time I will sit down at the black and whites I will remember that moment of bliss And I've been torn apart So thank you Sarah, thank you Corwin You reenforced the reconstruction I've been torn apart Power fail restart
Who Are You 03:35
Who Are You You're so used to appraise And to save your face But I want to know What's your own point of view Who are you? Is there something you believe Or just something to achieve Do you settle an internal I.O.U. Who are you? Way back in childhood days All your pursuit was play You need no avatar Cause you is what you are I have heard that talk before Will you offer me some more Or will you go on to Simmer that kind of stew Who are you? Besides the things you might confess Carefully made up to impress I want to know Every nut, bolt and screw Who are you? There's beauty in your eyes Growing tired of being disguised You need no avatar Cause you is what you are
You Belong 03:51
You Belong Hand in hand This is how we stand Against the wind It will do no harm In your mothers arms You are lying in You can close your eyes We'll be here by your side |:And on and on Your dream may come To find you here And dry your tear And on and on You'll hear the drum The world outside:| 1) Will turn on day or night Night and day, day and night 2) Goes by and by While you fall asleep Let the melody Be your company And the moon and stars Jupiter and mars They will come and see That newborn life Like the time and the tides And on and on You're growing strong With every beat of your heart From the moment on It has begun The rivers run And life goes on and on And you know you belong
It was not us You beat us up Like you'd gone mad Your callow way To help yourself And to forget Your young girls dreams Of better days You never had It was not us What held you up It was abuse And underneath Recreancy

Anthony's Garden Munich, Germany

Singer-songwriter Joerg Mair counts on the wisdom of a pure folk-song reduced to its essentials. Dealing with love and hate, personal and global crisis, the lyrics are the driving force of every song.

His Trio „Anthony’s Garden“ (Wolfgang Peyerl - drums, Markus Angeli - upright bass) runs in the folk-tradition of Stephen Stills, José González, Bon Iver, Nick Drake or Ry Cooder.
