"Pompeii lyrics"

The Earthquake 62 a.d.

music and lyrics by Jürgen Fritz

Deceitful sunshine rose above
Pompeii, it's homes and streets
That morning of 5th February
Sixty-two a.d.

There were no signs of panic
And there were no signs of hate
Which turned out to be errors
Pre-arranged by human fate

The way of life did not contain the chance
Of times to end
No use in shooting arrows
When the bow is overbent

They failed to please their gods
They didn't please their mother earth
Destruction was the only way
To give room to new life
These modern sources will change the times

The warning born in unknown skies
Had deathly been ignored
Pompeii's lights were fading out
That afternoon was short

The planet opened up it's mouth
To gulp it all away

The night Pompeii died
Seemed like the devil's fair
A morbid deal was signed and sealed
Vesuvius raised his hands,
"We'll see you there!"

Journey of a Fallen Angel

music and lyrics by Jürgen Fritz

A dying angel laid
His tired wings across the town
He said "I have a note
Sent by the king that wears no crown."
And as he's grasping for it
Somehow he just cannot get it out
The paper said
This town is not dead

Some of the people
That survived the night before
Came crawling out to hear
The angel's song of lore
And as they're getting closer
They can see his heart is bleeding out
Here it is,
so sing out loud

CHORUS

Get you spirits together
And this world will keep turning for you
It should help to remind you and open your eyes

Let this song be your guidance
And this world will keep turning for you
For the way you are living is just a disguise

Inspiration spread among the haunted souls
A single straw within a sea of shattered hopes
Hesitating movements strengthen
Into action which leads to a drive
Let's start again
We are alive

CHORUS

An overwhelming energy is speeding up the pace
'Cos what you get in time is what you got
Some tantalizing ladies rearrange their perfumed lace
The angel's voice makes everything just stop

CHORUS

Is this the end
Of what looked like an endless trail
I wish this message
Could have gotten here by mail
I'm just a one-way angel
Useless like a stepped-on bottle-cap
You'll never learn
I can't go back

The all-time human turn-around
Is leaving him to die
And confidence returns to people's minds
A lonely dog right by his wing
Is barking soft and shy
Pompeii - what is left of you
I wanna cry

CHORUS

Get your spirits together
"Cos this world won't keep turning for you
It's the very reminder to open your eyes

Let this song be your guidance
And this world will keep turning for you
For the way you've been living is just a disguise
(Repeat last chorus)

Viva Pompeii

music by Jürgen Fritz and Curt Cress

The Time of your Life...(?)

music by Jürgen Fritz
lyrics by Sondra and Jürgen Fritz

There's a brand-new establishment in town
With a lot of nice looking girls around
They wave you inside for tonight's a surprise
The hostess serves in Pompeii red
And you won't believe how you'll be fed
So make up your mind, tonight is the night - Alright

Come on and join in our party
You'll have the time of your life
Please hurry up we're just starting
We guarantee you
Tonight you'll have the time of your life

Once you're inside it takes your breath
This could be life this could be death
You're welcomed by ladies extraordinaire
Laying down on a velvet padded bench
The treatment is roman, it's not french
We promise a show that's gonna suit you right, all night

Come on and join in our party
You'll have the time of your life
Please hurry up we're just starting
We guarantee you
Tonight you'll see the best show of your life
This mellow light is slowly blinding
What is left of your disdain
In given time you'll end up
Feeling like yourself again

We present you
A blend of sound and light that blows your mind

Very slowly the curtains draw apart
The things that you'll see might stop your heart
You still have the chance to turn around in time
There's one thing you really ought to know
Life's not an everlasting show
Now wouldn't you wish you could be deaf
and blind, tonight

Come on and join in our party
You'll have the time of your life
Please hurry up we're just starting
We guarantee you
Tonight you'll see the best show of your life
(Tonight you'll see your life)

Come on into our party (oooh yeah)
You'll see what life is about
Please find a seat the show is starting
We inform you
Tonight could be the last night of your life

The Rich Man and the Carpenter

music and lyrics by Jürgen Fritz

A rich man met a carpenter
Their minds were world's apart
The rich man said 'How do you do
Could you frame my golden heart?'
'I don't think I could do that job
You better go find a jeweler's store
Where they do frame things as such'

What do I do
Am I left behind
I'm not asking for too much
Why don't you show me the way
I sure would pay you well
I've got the money to buy
Why does nobody sell?

'You might have lots of money
And be blessed with a golden heart
But you cannot erase the past
And try to get back to the start'
'I don't want to extend my life
No more than is my share
Though for what there is left to live
I do need golden hair
Don't you think that's fair?

What do I do
Am I left behind
I'm not asking for too much
Why don't you show me the way
I sure would pay you well
I've got the money to buy
Why does nobody sell?

Have I reached my sunset time
That warming shine will not be waiting
Somewhere in the back of mind
I know my time is slowly fading

An I to analyze my good and bad
Or weigh the weight of right and wrong
Just when I think about my life
I wonder why...

The rich man didn't understand
That he walked a dead-end street
He couldn't find the jeweler's store
And his life seemed incomplete
Then he finally met a man
dressed in glory, gold and fame
And if they haven't died by now
They'll still look the same
While we're singing this refrain

What do we do
Are we left behind
We're not asking for too much
Why don't you show us the way
We sure would pay you well
We've got the money to buy
But why does nobody sell?
Do we have to go to hell?

Dance on the Volcano

music by Jürgen Fritz

Vesuvius 79 a.d.

music and lyrics by Jürgen Fritz

Almost seventeen years
They had been living in peace
Which made their conscience lazy
Life was happily tuned
To take it easy
Seemed the golden rule

But again they ignored
The tune Vesuvius scored
A scream of raw distortion
Glowing rocks he used as drums and cymbals
And burning lava for his violins

The overture wasn't new
But when they reached section two
He had a special effect
Which didn't look like a gag
He tore Pompeii apart
Crescending into part three
He gave the encore for free

The warning born in unknown skies
Was recognized too late
Pompeii's lights had faded out
The gods had closed their gates

The mountain opened up it's mouth
It's breath was crimson gold

The day Pompeii died
It was the devil's fair
That morbid deal had been fulfilled
Vesuvius raised his hands,
'THOU SHALT NOT KILL!'

The Hymn

music and lyrics by Jürgen Fritz

A peaceful breeze rose from the sea
It joined the sun in perfect harmony
A lonesome cloud that passed by heard the song
And slowing down, began to sing along

Exotic birds came with the wind
They were singing songs that only birds can sing
But when they met the breeze and sun and cloud
They realized they were in tune, precise and loud

And while the sky was shining blue
The sea below divided into two
A velvet path for Neptune and his wife
They joined the choir in the hymn of life

And very soon the sound increased
Sometimes a melody can heal disease
All creatures great and small had heard about
the hymn
They didn't know the words, but they knew
how to sing
