Bei »the last planet« nimmt uns Detlev Schmidtchen mit auf eine Reise zum letzten Planeten und fliegt uns zu einer malerischen Landschaft, die ein warmes, traumartiges Bild vor dem geistigen Auge entstehen lässt, dass er mit der Gitarre sehr melodiös akzentuiert.


THE LAST PLANET / CHAPTER 1 »IMPRESSIONS«

LANE 7

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Jürgen Rosenthal

leaving the earth – i cross the space | not lookin’ back – i’m face to face with myself | did i live there - deep in the dark | ‘till who? woke up – my frozen mind with a spark | i’m on my way – dear underground | lane seven’s old – what secret can be found | from poisoned air – of bad delights | to understand – arabian nights – oh declare

 

and tell me why – i’m on this road | is this the end – of all we showed | while everyone hides silent out in the dark

 

away from earth – alone in space | now i am here – face to face with myself | what’s left behind – out in the dark | will i awake – my frozen mind by a spark | now on my way – through underground

 

lane seven’s cold – the secret can be found | no poisened air – no bad delights | to understand – arabian nights – yes i dare!

 

so tell me why – i’m on this road | is this the end – of all we showed | while everyone hides silent out in the dark

 

so tell me why – i’m all alone | end of the road – end of our show | while everyone hides silent deep in his dark

 

l a n e 7-9 starts in time

l a n e 7-8 will be to late

l a n e 7-4 opens the door

l a n e 7-3 is setting us free

 


THE LAST PLANET / CHAPTER 2 »CHALLENGES«

MORNING LIGHT

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Jürgen Rosenthal

the whisperin' wind and tide | announce the mornin' light | i'm lookin all around | i landed overground

 

someone has been so wise | got blessing in disguis | no creature here and there | but many shadows in the air

 

they hover proud - they act so cool | so don't look back - to all them fools | i think the time is right - to enter from dark | into the mornin' light

 

now there's a crack - in everything | that's how the morning light gets in | i think the time is right - to enter from dark | into the morning light

 

thee shadows act so wise | there is no space for lies | i feel that someone cares | i stand on mystic stairs

 

they hover proud - they act so cool | so don't look back - to all them fools | i think the time is right - to enter from dark | into the mornin' light

 

now there's a crack - in everything | that's how the morning light gets in | i think the time is right - to enter from dark | into the morning light

 


MINDLESS

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Jürgen Rosenthal

shadows on the wall - shadows big and tall | i'm so far away - from another normal day | is there anybody out - did i hear an angry shout | oh my lord will i survive - i am cryin' out -loud

 

mindless - i am so mindless

 

faces we hide in - ways we are tight in | pictures that i see - disappear in front of me is there anybody out - did i hear an angry shout | oh my lord will i survive - i am cryin out -loud

 

where is my fathers home - i'm feeling so alone | please take me out of here - before i'm drowning in my fear | where is the pleasure dome - i miss my father's home | the faces we hide in - the ways we're all tied in - so

 

mindless - i am so mindless- yeah

 


THE WAY

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Jürgen Rosenthal

i climb the mountain – hopefully | look for the hidden sermon - no one knows | here and there - far and wide - and all around | i cross the ocean – respectfully | look for the sunken island - no one knows | here and there - far and wide - and all around

 

hey - is the way that i walk alright | is at the end of the path the light | so i can follow my dreams tonight | hey - will my pilgrimage be alright | is at the end of the path the light | oh - could i pilot my dreams tonight

 

i creep the desert – secretly | look for the fallen angel - no one knows | here and there - far and wide - and all around | i find the cave – finally | i face the secret light - no one knows | here and there - far and wide - and all around

 

hey - is the way that i walk alright | is at the end of the path the light | so i can follow my dreams tonight | hey - will my pilgrimage be alright | is at the end of the path the light | oh - could i pilot my dreams tonight

 

is this the way ... is this the way

is this the way ... is this the way

THE LAST PLANET / CHAPTER 3 »REVERSION«

GLIDING THROUGH THE LIGHT

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Claudia Roggendorf

i´m gliding through the light, i´m not so far from home | the beams of light reveal my mind my inspiration grows, if only i had known | the way to bliss is hard to find | crossing this gentle light, floating into brilliancy | i´m near the place where i belong | is this the bright light to remind me of what sent me out? | will i get back where i came from?

 

i´m gliding through the light, where i feel save and sound | a ray of hope guides my return | i came from space but now my heart is homeward bound | to prove the lessons i have learned crossing this gentle light, floating into brilliancy | i´m near the place where i belong | is this the bright light to remind me of what sent me out? | i´m going back where i came from.

 

crossing this gentle light, floating into brilliancy | i´m near the place where i belong | is this the bright light to remind me of what sent me out? | i´m going back where i came from | some secret gates outshine the stars and blaze the trail | i sense the earth, the sun, the moon | reflections of my soul, they help me without fail | to reach my destination soon.

 

i´m gliding through the light, i´m not so far from home | the beams of light reveal my mind | i came from space but now my heart is homeward bound | to prove the lessons i have learned.

ADVENTUROUS JOURNEY PART 1 (REMEMBERING)

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Claudia Roggendorf

let me tell you how i walked in both worlds then | maybe someday i will take this road again | i´ll remember why | haunting feelings of confusion all that way | but adventures become treasure trove, one day | i`ll remember why.

 

thanks to light came out into the open my | hidden richness of the soul which used to sigh | i´ll remember why

watching the film of my life backward was a try | there is still a lot to be done before i die | and i´ll remember why.

 

so i learned and went the long way from the lane | grew with every step i made. no pain, no gain | first i have to climb the ladder to real life | for the stair to paradise we long - we won´t play dice | i´ll remember why

 


REVERSION

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Claudia Roggendorf

i´m sent out by the might of harmony | i´m in for my inner rebirth | this voyage to myself recalls my fate | on or beyond the earth | my thoughts are flashing fast before my eyes advising me of what i´ve found | it´s turning up in any shade of light | the scenes are spinning round.

 

now time is running backward like a dream | in reverse, from finish to start | return to the beginning of the chain | all ages fall apart

retrace my steps through dark and fantasy the way seems to be shoreless and strange | my turning back will solve the mystery i´ll undergo a change.

 

the past conjoins the here and now again | creative power wins all along | the silence near the end swells constantly | future is coming on | i´m following the route of knowledge back | to where my sudden journey began | i´m standing at the scratch of my release | no light years are to span.

 

ooohhh, reversions can come true

 


NASTY BANG

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Claudia Roggendorf

i wonder what hit me, a noisy crack | flings me back on the road | it´s like a flic-flac (in)to bottleneck | of feelings, ready to explode | i hear a nasty bang, it breaks a lock all things change in a flash | i find myself in a state of shock | i feel that earsplitting bash.

 

so i say i got

 

all at once calmness falls upon me | and it feels like the ease of eloys | i passed out when i raomed through the time | though my ears were still resounding with noise | fast as lightning i soared into space | i came round, landed down on the lane | it´s getting better, no doubt anymore | transformation worked ! i`m not the same.

 

where did i end up now? the stakes are high | what a cold of the ground! where is the cloudless blue sky? am i the frog that will be crowned? i hear a nasty bang like dynamite | it really knocked off my socks | this heavy thunder gives me a fright | will i be struck by moon rocks?

 

so i say i got

 

refrain...

strophe...

 

so i say i´ve got to let go

so i mean to say oh my!

so i have to say cheerio!

so i say i got a good flight.

so i say i got to go on.

 


BACK HOME

Künstler: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Text: Claudia Roggendorf

back home - safely arrived | back home - recover the road | back home - sense of delight | back home - hopes to reload | i´m looking back with mixed emotions | the time is ripe to start the act afresh | back home - snug as a bug | back home - out of the woods | back home - yes, i´m in luck | back home - now it´s all good.

 

i´m looking back with mixed emotions | the time is ripe to start the act afresh.

 

i´m back home - here i am | i´m back home - born again | i´m back home - found my way well, i´m back home - yeah, hooray! back home - glad to be here | back home - nightmares decay | back home - so my heart cheers | back home - no more to stray

 

i´m looking back with mixed emotions | the time is ripe to start the act afresh.

 

i´m back home - here i am | i´m back home - born again | i´m back home - found my way | well, i´m back home - yeah, hooray!

 


THE SUN SONG

Künstler: ELOY 1976

what kind of sound, i think i can hear | a lily-white lily calling | she seems to yearn to darken skin and hair | i really know, without her force | you would be falling | you wouldn't need to breathe | my sinner air.

 

now listen

 

this day'll be grey, so take my advice | and wait for the dawning | wait for the rise of light tomorrow morning | look for the highest place in space | to rest and stay | you've got to chase the early rising sun

 

next day
