about

Cromwell Progressive Rock Worms, Germany

Cromwell was founded in 1994 leading to a demotape called "nor king nor country", recorded in a small studio in town.
Our music is influenced by (progressive) rock bands such as IQ, Saga and many others.
The Band never had the idea of being a professional band but pure hobbyists, having fun with creating their own music.

Track Name: Starlit Sands
STARLIT SANDS
have my workday done, all my power's gone
hurry up the stairs to (the) comfort of my chair
then unlock my flat, heading for my bed
turn the telly on, what the hell is going wrong ?
overwhelming scenes on the tv screen
(like) pictures of a child killed by mortal tide
faces full of hate, rising interest rates
towns are set in flames, oppressors are to blame
modern daughters wait at the castle's gate
beauties swamped by calls, get lost in shopping malls
ManU dressed in black with numbers on their back
It's the only way to spend your Saturday
I walk in starlit sands, my steps along the shore
left nothing to defend, surrender to the tide
towards the daylight's end
here there comes the change, the change of time
drifting through the day, a hemisphere away
for any girl will know, my frozen face will glow
reflecting in her eyes, in silent blacks and greys
my voice in empty space
I walk in starlit sands, my steps along the shore
left nothing to defend, surrender to the tide
towards the daylight's end
here there comes the change, the change of time
my head against the wall, i'm waiting for your call
your smile, your eyes, your soul can fill this gaping hole
what i may feel tonight down by the waterside
i'm longing for your hand walking on starlit (sands)
you bring me back to life ,surrender to the tide
but when you're not around i'm losing, stand my ground
i want you in my arms, i need you most of all
it' s time you need to know my frozen face will (glow)
Track Name: Black Confetti
BLACK CONFETTI
out of sight, but still in mind
frames yellowed by the mists of time
why are dreams fading away ? i want them all here to stay
and as the years are going by
we're learning how to wave good-bye
like a stranger to myself, i am searching for a place
while it takes me to the past, (to) where my heart always returns
like a stranger to myself, i am searching for a way
drifting to an unknown land , where i'll never want to stay
death is such a lonely bride, she's much more than words can say
must be many more besides, on the roads of slow decay
reacting, reflecting, it's time to realize
my power is dying, i've seen it in your eyes
reacting, rejecting, it's time to minimize
in silence,i'm hiding, a fatal compromise
there are many hills to climb, the path is open wide
keep the fire in your heart, keep fighting for your life
reacting, reflecting, it's time to realize
my power is dying, i've seen it in your eyes
reacting, rejecting, it's time to minimize
in silence you're hiding, a fatal compromise
Track Name: Roots
hard to believe, send or receive
refused responsibilities
stake in the heart, right from the start
brother and sister torn apart
some will live for hot desires but I am caged in ice
I watch the scene with frozen eyes
keep me alive waving goodbye
i'm running out of words no reason left to cry
a turning face, an empty place
i'm running out of words, we're lost without a trace
father and son, empathy's gone
don't remember where I know you from
keep me alive, innocent eyes
i'm running out of words, no reason to remind
what's not today, drifting away
i'm running out of words, there's nothing left to say
follow me then and back again, who really matters why or when ?
strike or protect, finally dead,
it's all about black chapter red
so it seems they live for hire but they will pay the price
i watch the scene with frozen eyes
we live what we are
came from alien star
let me know if someone else was ever coming through
wine women song, nothing seems wrong
feel that you'll never change inside
keep me alive, innocence dies
i'm running out of words, no longer side by side
dead or alive, with opened eyes
i'm running out of words, tomorrows came to die
I’m always with you, always !
Track Name: The Lights
Instrumental
Track Name: November Sky
NOVEMBER SKY
walls closing in
the birds refuse to sing
i'd need someone to talk to
tell me what am I to do ?
i'd need a friend
to stay until the end
it's hard to bear this frozen land
whose love's not second hand ?
it's hard to be alone, to make it on your own
and real friends are few, there's no one to love you
the questions running deep in nights of restless sleep
and still no answers why, rain from november sky
In all this grey
there's so much left to say
i'd need someone to talk to
tell me what am I to do ?
sunshine in vain
addicted to the rain
days too short and nights too long
hearts buried in a (sad) song
feel like an easy prey
depression kills the day
and rain keeps pouring down
just like fragments of the sun
the years, they fade away
leave darkness and decay
still hear the lonely cry
rain from november sky
Track Name: Black Chapter Red
BLACK CHAPTER RED
beside the road of disagree
we walked the fields invisibly
within our burning hearts impatience slowly starts
horizons hardly visible behind the tv screen
can easily be seen much more things than their truth
is this the way we'll live our lives ?
is this the way to stay outside ?
a call from hills and towns against a wall of sounds
the stars were shining mystical down on the open ground
since then their centuries feel shorter than our day
still hypnotized by lies, believe ! protect ! survive !
in chapters of the book I read we climb the coldest peaks
for treasures that we seek feel deeper than the sea
I, I,…..can hardly understand
I, I,…..the letter that you sent
listening to my favourite song makes me feel there's nothing wrong
while the ships are setting sails in the search of holy grails
is this the time to give our lives ?
Is this the time to sacrifice ?
there is a silver line and through the dark clouds shine
the meaning of the words I said, you'll always be with me
emotion factory
feel stronger than your say
I,I,…..can hardly realize
I,I,…..can hardly recognize
walking down the road of bones
walking down on hurting stones
long ago the world's run dry
under cold november sky
I, I,…..can hardly understand
I,I,…..the letter that you sent
whispering to my favourite one
kissing under burning sun
while the ships are setting sails in the search of holy grails
beside the road of disagree
we walked the fields invisibly
Track Name: Kissing Dynamite
KISSING DYNAMITE
city's life was hard to bear
a feeling we all shared
no tomorrows in their frame
walking back the way they came
young and wild we're leaving school
we won't be nobody's fool
time to choose, time to decide
on our way to change our mind
tell me what is wrong or right ?
we've been waiting for the night....
walking to the west but I saw slavery
turning to the east but I saw misery
searching for a way of liberated life
and deep inside i'm waiting for the tide
stay by my side this star will be my guide
and deep inside preparing for the night
i'm out of sight and kissing dynamite
caught by lies
distraught by things
that they have done
learning how to use a hidden loaded gun
living life in chains of chosen underground
and deep inside i'm waiting for the tide
stay by my side this star will be my guide
and deep inside preparing for the night
i'm out of sight and kissing dynamite
walking to the west but I saw slavery
turning to the east but I saw misery
searching for a way of liberated life
Track Name: Deep Down
DEEP DOWN
slowly, silently, like a majesty
runs the river Rhine
once a hoard of gold, never growing old
sheltered by his waves
searched since Hagen's time, love, war and crime
in burgundian lands
deep down, deep down, lost forever sword and crown (by these hands)
see how, see how all the gold sank to the ground (river sands)
deep down, deep down and the ruined skies are grey
an anger-driven face ignoring the disgrace
who sails for hidden place ?
there is no single sound when hope falls to the ground
and love comes to be drowned
by these hands, river sands
deep down, deep down, lost forever sword and crown (by these hands)
see how, see how all the gold sank to the ground (river sands)
deep down, deep down and the ruined skies are grey
we're dancing cheek to cheek ,abilities too weak
for treasures that we seek
and what we once have won, it's finally been gone
we learn until we're done
