The Silencer 04:41
The Silencer I am the silencer I am the pale moonlighter I am a last lost soul Are you with me tonight? I am the silencer The whisperer of lightning A crawling king snake In the empire of mud I am the silencer I am the short wave rider The Flying Dutchman With the 1000 eyes wide shut The handkerchiefs are wet Dancehall days are over So what’s left, when the curtain falls And chaos is the number of all order I am the silencer The whisperer of lightning A crawling king snake In the empire of mud Black metal rain falls Crispy on my forehead Like a million little knifes The moon rolls like an opium ball In the Central Station hall A sonic boom of Elvis just arrives And I’m the silencer I am the pale moonlighter I am a last lost soul Are you with me tonight? The handkerchiefs are wet Dancehall days are over So what’s left, when the curtain falls And chaos is the number of all order © Rex Joswig (Pink Bass Edition)

Prince Of Light Bloody candles light my soul Lonely hearts without a role Dogs are barking, got no answer Bells are ringing, midnight hour And I`m the lonely dancer Sister midnight, run with me The edge of light breaks vanity Sister midnight, let me in You rule the club of deadly sin Sister midnight, run with me The edge of light breaks vanity Sister midnight, shake the ground You run the empire of sound Listen to me and not to TV Move my body into angry sea The smoking moon it turns to be Like getting lost in misery The city cries, the anchorman lies And darkly falls a dream into the ground Listen to me and not to TV The city bleeds circles of ice And from downtown an army of flies The Prince of Light he speaks to me In silent towers I can hear the thunder Of my roaring destiny Sister midnight run with me The edge of light breaks vanity Sister midnight let me in You rule the club of deadly sin Sister midnight shake the ground You run the empire of sound Mesmerize me Hypnotize me Recognize me Mesmerize me Hypnotize me RJ

Drowning Fool My true I Does not know my name It wears a secret Like an ever burning flame Searched for pearls On a ship of fools Played dirty chess With other people´s rules So come on Says the gamblin man All or nothing As best as you can Let´s have a look at the surprise Let´s get lost in sonic tumbling dice So come on So come on My true I Does not know my name Like a passenger In a never landing plane My blue eyes could blind the sun I´m free because I´m always on the run The night runs out For a brandnew tool Another deck of cards For a drowning fool Who counts the hours Who cleans the pool A grain of sand is left For a drowning fool My true I Does not know my name Like a zombie In someone elses game Searched for pearls On a ship of fools Played dirty chess With other people´s rules So come on Says the gambling man All or nothing As best as you can Let´s have a look at the surprise In this room sweet bird of youth Throws the lucky dice So come on So come on My true I Does not know my name Like a passenger In a never landing plane Without a doubt I walk the line The very next U-Turn Should be mine A life burns out Like a Son House Blues Another deck of cards For a drowning fool Who counts the hours Who cleans the pool Another demon sucks Another game to choose O Mama gimme help I´m a drowning fool O Mama ... A drowning fool RJ

Over The Moon When you miss the morning train There is no one else to blame When the moon is on the screen We are riding the dolphin Someone else will call us mad Why are people all so sad There´s no direction I can walk What do all the people talk About in their little holes And the television glows While the stars are licking gold Me & my friends we´re walking cold On the road of no return All lighthouses they will burn When the storm comes over you And all the soap You´re walking through Is not half of your response Could you help us, Mr. Bond? There´s only nothingness to hold I saw the future being folded In a little box - fooling me, I won´t get old But in my cellar there are clowns Even more than I have thrilled A fate might not be fullfilled The jukebox plays another song It´s up to you nothing is wrong Nothing is true Everything is navyblue And my dear, we´re close to thee We are like pirates Gliding over the hidden sea Dreams turn vivid In the morning dew What am I supposed to do In that scene A lightning strikes My heart goes boom I guess that I am Over the moon RJ

Doors Of Terror I came all the way from Baikonur Didn’t know what I came for I came all the way from Kriwoi Rog To offer you a culture shock Didn’t come for money instead of honey Didn’t come for fame instead of blame Didn’t come for titty instead of pity For liberty of property means poverty Doors of terror – doors of shame Doors of error – doors of rot & blame Doors of terror to break through Walls leaving nothing but throbbing stones My name is Bazooka I don’t need you To open the door Cos I came myself Therefore for sure I came for a simple mistake That somebody had to undertake I came for a symphony of anarchy To the dirty gate of hell & hate Didn’t come for money instead of honey Didn’t come for fame instead of blame Didn’t come for titty instead of pity For liberty of property means poverty Doors of terror – doors of Odin Doors of error – doors of Thor Doors of terror to break through Walls leaving nothing but throbbing stones My name is Bazooka I don’t need you To open the door Cos I came myself Therefore for sure Bert Papenfuß

about

The Hidden Sea is the maritime alter ego of Herbst in Peking.

"I see myself as all mankind in prison, with hands outstretched
to lanterns by the ocean." Malcolm Lowry

... Schöne, düstere, schwere Songs, gestochen scharf produziert und von Joswigs warmer, tiefer Stimme getragen, die sich wie ein mattschwarzer Kokon um die Musik legt. Zur Joswig’schen Rezitation des Benn-Poems »O Nacht« möchte man Kinder zeugen oder aus dem Fenster springen.
Jürgen Winkler (melodie & rhythmus)
