about

This 13-tracks full length album takes us back to the 1900s on a musical trip through time and history with all its reminders and milestones still relevant for us all today. It is a concept album whose anti-war theme includes an unmistakable summary message with an inherent future hope for complete peace and freedom. It's a real journey, with an experience given to us in ways that only music can.

Some say history repeats itself, but that’s not completely true.
Nevertheless, it seems true when past circumstances are similar to today’s.
So one wonders why we often fail to recognize and learn from previous mistakes.
Is that because we humans tend to live in the here and now?

How many times have trivial events and minor decisions
led to unforeseen circumstances that changed the course of history?
The 1900s provide many examples of these, still relevant for us all today.
Eternal reminders of how little things can make a big difference.

When we overlook these reminders, we lose historical perspective
and it’s lessons only fade into dark obscurity.
So let the music speak and take us on a trip through time, and rediscover…
The Lost Memorial of the 1900s...

Track Name: 1914 [Part 1-4]
"1914" [Part 1-4]

music and lyrics (spoken): Armand Gutheim


A new year is awaiting for us outside the door
with new times much happier than ever before

Yet another year, with the excuse for a new better score
and the hope to bring the drifting ship back ashore

But in our New Year’s resolution, hides also a true disaster
where peace and understanding are blown up by an evil blaster

A simple struggle for power where nobody can be the master
while fate is only knocking harder and faster


Instrumental


Also: “Silent night” (in German, English and French)

Track Name: Nothing but a Warplay [1917]
NOTHING BUT A WAR PLAY [1917]

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim


They give you a story
of greatness, pride and glory
a world that can reunify
They give you a purpose
so great behind the surface
they make you believe you can fly

They give you a big part
so you think you are real smart
you grow to believe you’re so sly
They give you the power
to make your enemy cower
but nobody will tell you why!...


chorus - - -
It’s a lie
what they say
You will die
anyway
In the sky
they don’t pay
for your cry…
It’s nothing but a war play!


They give you a reason
to fight against all treason
when nobody will qualify
They give you a feeling
of floating above the ceiling
you feel so incredibly high

They give you a title
to keep you highly vital
but you know, it’s something you buy
They give you a memorial
to ensure you’ll be immortal
but nobody can tell you why!...

LA PETITE MORT [1933]

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim


We gonna put up a fight
Release the tensions
Gonna put up a fight
In new dimensions


bridge - - -
And every time they ask for more
we gonna give them La Petite Mort


We gonna put up a fight
Feel no resistance
Gonna put up a fight
Erase all distance


bridge - - -


chorus - - -
Oh! We gonna give them La Petite Mort
We gonna give them La Petite Mort
We gonna give them La Petite Mort
La Petite Mort…


We gonna put up a fight
Enhance our senses
Gonna put up a fight
Break down the fences

Track Name: Apocalypse [1945]
APOCALYPSE [1945]

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim


Do you hear me
where we vanish in smoke?
Why not fear me
as the truth is no joke?…

Everywhere you can see the fire in our damn cursed site
and there’s no more sun as the ground turns white
Our guiding star shone before so bright
now it radiates only a bad night!


chorus - - -
Run, run away
from the Apocalypse!
Run, run way
oooh, aaah…
the Apocalypse!


Do you see me
as I try to escape?
Why not be me
and experience bad shape?…

Everywhere people lose their hair shouting loud from fright
and there is no way they can take to flight
Our guiding star shone before so bright
now it radiates only a bad night!


chorus - - -


Do you smell us
as we lose our skin?
Why not tell us
that it's for our sins?…

Everywhere you can see the trace from our foredoomed fight
as we try to flee from the dazzling light
Our guiding star shone before so bright
now it radiates only a bad night!

Track Name: At the Iron Curtain [1961]
AT THE IRON CURTAIN [1961]

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim


Hey, don’t surrender
because of writings on the wall
Keep on being a love defender
even if this world will fall

bridge - - -
So what have you found
that goes on around
An insidious sound
that grows and rebounds

chorus - - -
But with sunshine
in your mind
everything will be fine
again!...

Hey, don’t surrender
when the splendor’s just a fake
Keep on looking through pretenders
and expose their evil stake

bridge - - -

chorus - - -


middle - - -
It’s a crazy world we’re living in
where we’re born to either lose or win
Everything’s about who is complete
and who manage to march on their feet

It’s a crazy world we have to face
where the violence seems to be the base
With a life that’s only black or white
it’s so easy to put up a fight

It’s a crazy world we all have made
but there’s hope if it begins to fade
When one day the iron curtain falls
will we maybe hear how heaven calls


Hey, don’t surrender
for the voice inside your ears
Keep on fighting all offenders
hiding deep inside your fears

Track Name: Human Rights! [1968]
HUMAN RIGHTS! [1968]

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim


There’s a magical vibration
we can all feel in the air
Now’s the time for celebration
or another fight to share


bridge - - -
You don’t know what’s real repression
You just know what power is
You don’t know what’s real regression
You just know what sour is


chorus - - -
Human rights!
That’s what we are fighting for
Human rights!
By now you should know the score


Everywhere’s a fight for freedom
but the reason can diverge
They can win while reaching stardom
then a new foe may emerge


bridge - - -
You don’t know what’s real injustice
You just think you’re worth it all
You don’t know what real distrust is
You think someone else should fall


chorus - - -

Track Name: Follow that Flying Dove [1989]
FOLLOW THAT FLYING DOVE [1989]

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim


Suddenly, a glimpse of hope
when we tear down that hated wall
Finally, we all will cope
with a life that should be a ball


chorus - - -
So we follow that flying dove
in the sky above
for peace and love


Suddenly, we see the light
after years in a darker place
Finally, a hopeful sight
with a new world so full of grace


chorus - - -


Suddenly, we can sing of joy
for a future with no more war
Finally, no one will destroy
these new times with an open door


chorus - - -


choir - - -
We’re together in this only world
We will never ever let it cease!
We’re together when we sing these words
All we want is to live in peace!


chorus - - -

Track Name: Keep on Making Peace
KEEP ON MAKING PEACE

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim


You and I
in the middle of everything
Good and bad
those are the spices life can bring
To make peace or create war
the difference hangs on a tiny string


chorus - - -
Let’s keep on making peace!


Well, we all choose the way
to stay or run away
There’s no one else but us to save the world
So won’t you come on, go on, be strong
there’s no way we can do it wrong
Together we can stand and shout the word!


chorus - - -


You and I
in the middle of a dream we should enhance
Well, we all live and we all die
but we won’t ever get a second chance…
