about

Conny Ochs

Conny Ochs draws himself near the most primordial creation of music – with a pristine commitment to his own emotionality. What is channeled into his music, tone and lyrics is nothing but the truth. Sometimes happy, sometimes sad, sometimes nasty, sometimes nice, sometimes begging, sometimes proud, sometimes cheerful, sometimes bitter, sometimes lost, sometimes found. ... more

Track Name: Dark Tower
DARK TOWER


Who´ll be safe and sound
Down in the wheeping garden
Turns its insights out
Out into the sea that is
Black and deep and nameless
Hiding its secrets where you can´t see

Sleeping the day away, when the lights go dim
Living in a dark tower, slowly sinking
Sleeping the day away, when the lights go dim
Dark tower

Rising up above
The dream machine is made to
Do the work of love
Cold feel, working clean and half dead
Not dead enough
Not to kill the remains of how it feels

Sleeping a day away, when the lights go dim
Living in a dark tower, slowly sinking
Sleeping a day away, when the lights go dim
Dark tower

Sleeping the day away, when the lights go dim
Living in a dark tower, slowly sinking
Sleeping the day away, when the lights go dim
Living in a dark tower, slowly sinking, slowly sinking in
Dark tower
Track Name: Crash And Burn
CRASH AND BURN


World outside, is a lie
World inside´s unsane
Coming down, getting high
Ends up all the same

Pharmaceutical.

Waiting for the pain, waiting for the pain
Help me out again, waiting for the pain
Station to station, that comes to crash
And burn

Come rise and fall in love
Do it once again
World outside, can´t get off
It ends up all the same

Autofunctional.

Waiting for the pain, waiting for the pain
Help me out again, i´m waiting for the pain
Station to station, that comes to crash
And burn

And it´s just a broken atlas, remaining in the hall
I´m waiting at the station, waiting for the call

Waiting for the train, waiting for the train
Help me out again, i´m waiting for the pain
Waiting for the pain, i´m waiting for the pain
Waiting for the pain
Track Name: Hammer To Fit
HAMMER TO FIT


Hammer to fit
I´m out in the street
The day broke like fire
What is it to me
If you´d see me now
You´d say, come again
You´re hurting just a bit
The heart is just in it
Put yourself together now, hammer to fit
Put yourself together now, hammer to fit

It´s easy again
To get drunk and cry
The changes that come
And eat you alive
It´s alright to be
The way that it is
You´re hurting just a bit
The heart is just in it
Put yourself together now, hammer to fit
Put yourself together now, hammer to fit

And all the cheering faces say the same
If you look my in the eye, do you see me
It´s okay, but what is it
Hammer to fit

You´re hurting just a bit
The heart is just in it
Put yourself together now, hammer to fit
Put yourself together now, hammer to fit
Put yourself together now
Hammer to fit
Track Name: King Of The Dead
KING OF THE DEAD


I fall into a darkness and i never could climb it up again
Even if there always was a light shining on my way
They call me king of the dead, ´cause i have a hard time with the living
Call me king of the dead and that´s who i am

King of the dead, that´s who i am
King of the dead

I fall into a shadow and i never could climb it up again
Now i´m searching for a light that was shining on my way
They call me king of the dead, since i have a hard time with the living
Call me king of the dead and that´s who i am

King of the dead, that´s who i am
King of the dead
That´s who i am, king of the dead

You fall into a darkness, and you never could climb it up again
Searching for a bit of light that was shining on your way
They call you king of the dead, since you have a hard time with the living
Call me king of the dead and that´s who i,
Call me king of the dead and that´s who i am

King of the dead, that´s who i am
King of the dead.
That´s who i am, king of the dead
That´s who i am
Track Name: Drunken Monkey
DRUNKEN MONKEY


One part of your rainbow
Pierces right through my heart
I was not ready for that, i am not ready for that
What´s coming over me
One piece hard and heavy

And everything is poisoned now
And man where is my head
I can´t see for all the colors make me blind
And the stars are knifecuts in a black-metal night
Run away, run away and out of time

Good day drunken monkey
Cast away on a golden shore, come again tell me more
Drunken monkey
Cast away on a golden shore, come again tell me more
Drunken monkey
Drunken monkey

One part of your rainbow
Pierces right through my heart

And everything is poison now
And man where is my head
I can´t see for all the colors make me blind
And the stars are all knifecuts in a black-metal night
Run away, run away and out of time

Good day drunken monkey

Good day drunken monkey
Cast away on a golden shore, come again tell me more
Drunken monkey
Cast away on a golden shore, come again tell me more
Drunken monkey
Drunken monkey
Drunken monkey

Tell me more
Crumbling tales of imagined cities
Home of brave
Dreams of love
Track Name: Moon
MOON


The moon is cruel
I love her so
She turns away, sees me no more
Where have you gone, my beautiful, you´ve gone too soon
Where have you gone, my beautiful, you´ve gone

Too soon, you turn away from me
I´ve just been turning around, to find my way
And you have turned away from me
Like the moon, you will turn around again
Turn around again

I dream away, edge of the night
And i cut myself, hopeless desire
You reach out your hand, and i climb the stairs up to your room
And i roll my eyes around the plain, when you have gone

Too soon, you turn away from me
I´ve just been turning around, to find my way
And you have turned away from me
Like the moon, you will turn around again
Back around again

Too soon, you turn away from me
I´ve just been turning around, to find my way
Until i´m in your arms and see
Like the moon, you have turned around again
Turn around again
Turn around again
Track Name: It´s All Too Bright
IT´S ALL TOO BRIGHT


Bright burn the fires of the satellites in space
Every second´s hour through every night and day
Run through the street ´cause i need my secret back
Overexposed you know why we dress in black

All i can find is a vague design
Stumble on the shine, no place to hide

´Cause its all too bright, all too bright
All too bright, all too bright

It´s all too bright, i see only dots and flares
Stumble from my room, i am falling up the stairs
Running to the street ´cause i need my secret back
Overexposed, burned and blinded on the track

And all i can find is a vague design
Stumble on the shine, no place to hide, `cause it´s all
All i can find is a vague design
Stumble on the shine, no place to hide

´Cause its all too bright, all too bright
All too bright, all too bright
Track Name: Crawling
CRAWLING


Crawling up the walls, no sign of rain
Crawling up the walls, no sign of rain

High in the desert, high and untold
The head is too hot, the heart is too cold

Sliding down the line, i´m slipping again
Sliding down the line, and no sign of rain

Sing me a song of passion and love
When i beg to differ, beg to go wrong
No sign of rain, ´til the hammer falls
Crawl up the walls.

Crawl up the walls,
Out of the dark, and into the light
Crawl them right up, crawl up the walls
Out of the dark and into the light
Crawl up the walls
Track Name: Gun In The Cradle
A GUN IN THE CRADLE


My bones are shaking in the prison
I hang in pieces from the roof
Skeletons dancing in the frontyard
I move away into the country
And bang my head against the trees
The bowl of fruit has gotten rotten
Ain´t that sweet

I woke up like a gun in the cradle
This is where i am, this is where i am
Oh this day just cuts me down to skin and bone
And a soul to trade

´Cause in the street the jaws are clacking
And the eyes are rolling wild
Like a dry fish on the shore waiting for the rain

I woke up like a gun in the cradle
This is where i am, this is where i am
Oh this day just cuts me down to skin and bone
And a soul to trade

I woke up like a gun in the cradle
This is where i am, this is where i am
Oh this day just cuts me down to skin and bone
And a soul to trade
A gun in the cradle
This is where i am, this is where i am
Oh this day just cuts me down to skin and bone
And a soul to trade
Track Name: Oracle
ORACLE


What is real rise up
What´d you feel from the start
In the all or nothing that counts
What is real here anyhow

You have changed my love
You´re different than before
What you´re up to rambling around
In the noise and in the sound

Who craves to spell, the oracle
Is blind is blind is blind
I need you now, you´re coming out
Of the shadows that are all around
Out of the shadows, out of the shadows
Shadows all around

It burns and never sleeps
The secret that it keeps
What is real enough anyhow
In the noise and in the sound

Who craves to spell, the oracle
Is blind is blind is blind
I need you now, you´re coming out
Of the shadows that are all around
Out of the shadows, out of the shadows
Shadows all around

Come out of the shadows
Out of the shadows
Shadows all around
Shadows all around
Track Name: New Ruins
NEW RUINS


New ruins, brick by brick into the ground
Sweetly hammered, baby that´s the brandnew sound
New ruins, every memory will hurt
Another death-day of another hero´s worth

But i won´t stare, i won´t beware
Of the dogs running around the house
No i don´t mind the new decline
Forever hammered baby
Set the record straight

New ruins, brick by brick into the ground
Sweetly hammered baby what´s the brandnew sound
New ruins for the spirits to be seen
Crashing through the roof, no shelter from the rain

No i won´t stare, i won´t beware
Of the dogs running around the house
Step inside the new decline
Forever hammered baby
Set the record straight

New ruins, are waiting for us
New ruins, are waiting for us

No i won´t stare, i won´t beware
Of the dogs running around the house
Step inside the new decline
Forever hammered baby
Set the record straight
Track Name: Sweet Delusion
SWEET DELUSION


Delusive i´m delusive
There is no other way
Delusive i must be delusive
To get out of my cave

Delusion, delusion is real
I don´t wanna see the doctor i dont´t wanna cure the ill
Delusion, delusion, delusion is real
Sweet delusion

No unsettling panic rush
And no exhaution craving
The end of things unfortunate
Before the world is caving

Delusion, delusion is real
I don´t wanna see the doctor i dont´t wanna cure the ill
Delusion, delusion, delusion is real
Sweet delusion
Sweet delusion

Delusion, delusion, delusion is real
