about

With her album „Time to Change“ phoeNic delivers a broad range of musical and vocal performance. Epic ballades, catchy titles and dance songs, traditional Scottish music followed by fascinating nature sounds really make this album a unique experience. Especially phoeNic’s powerful and rich voice, yet at the same time lyrical and sometimes rough, is not to be missed.

The album takes on a broad repertory of topics – many autobiographic - ranging from love and friendship to death. The core of the album is a passionate message for animal rights, with the artist giving animals a voice. Animals are sentient beings and individuals. Just like humans they have a fundamental right to live in peace and dignity, free from oppression.
For phoeNic human rights and animal rights are equally important and worth fighting for; that’s why she is a compassionate advocate for both, also supporting the global movement One Billion Rising to end violence against girls and women.

The title track “Time to Change” is a stirring message to all humanity to honor the beauty of our world and all its inhabitants and to treat animals with respect and equal rights. A large number of German and international animal rights organizations have contributed footage for the video clip.

phoeNic is donating 50% of all her download earnings of that track to these animal rights organizations.

Track Name: Wings of Love
see the dark clouds over the mountains
their shadows followed you for years
and when your heart is so heavy
that you almost give up
just close your eyes

fly with the phoeNic on her wings of love
let her take you far away
over the mountains high above
to places you dare not to dream
fly on her Wings of love

fly on her back and see the world from above
let go all of your sorrows and fears
you realize what you feel all the time
the only truth is love
so close your eyes

fly with the phoeNic on her wings of love
let her take you far away
over the mountains high above
to places you dare not to dream
fly on her Wings of love

let her take you home
where you can look in the mirror
without any fear
to meet yourself and get free
on her Wings of love

fly with the phoeNic on her wings of love
let her take you far away
over the mountains high above
to places you dare not to dream
on her wings of love

let her take you far away
to places you dare not to dream
fly on her wings of love
Track Name: Time to Change
from space planet earth looks bright and blue
we see the beauty of what was given to us
oceans and continents, deserts and forests, rivers and lakes
do you believe that this peaceful view is true?

STOP! this is the time to change!
open your eyes and then open your heart
STOP! this is the time to change!
we´re all Earthlings! There is no difference!
STOP! this is the time to change!

the truth is, that all of us want to live in peace
humans and animals
and yet, the earth and the oceans turn red
by the blood of millions of innocent souls
we kill out of greed and unnecessary pleasure!

STOP! this is the time to change!
open your eyes and then open your heart
STOP! this is the time to change!
we´re all Earthlings! There is no difference!
STOP! this is the time to change!

STOP! there is no need to kill and eat animals

STOP! this is the time to change!
open your eyes and then open your heart
STOP! this is the time to change!
we´re all Earthlings! There is no difference!
STOP! this is the time to change!

STOP! this is the time to change!
open your eyes and then open your heart
STOP! this is the time to change!
we´re all Earthlings! There is no difference!
STOP! this is the time to change!

this is the time to change!

STOP!
Track Name: Your last Dance
I don´t know how you´ve made it this far
your soul was broken, your heart was compromised
you fought like a lioness for your three only treasures
everything you’ve taught me about life
was respect and love for others
things, that life has not given to you

I know that the love of your life
asked you for your last dance
he held you in his arms
and carried you into his world

and while you float in your sky
my life feels no longer my life
everything has changed, since you left me
I hover above me and watch myself
as I lose more and more control
I have lost the grip in this living nightmare

I know that the love of your life
asked you for your last dance
he held you in his arms
and carried you into his world

you gave him your best smile
and I know that you are well. not just for a while. not just for a while
no one will ever understand how broken I really am
and so I try to dance through my life…. until we meet again

I know that the love of your life
asked you for your last dance
he held you in his arms
and carried you into his world

Track Name: Hard to Port
as if in slow motion they glide though the oceans
touching our souls with their voices
magically, they touch our deepest emotions
so why do we make the wrong choices?

captain to engine room: full speed back!
on this course we will run aground!
captain to first mate: HARD TO PORT!
let’s turn around and stop the attack!

we catch them in nets, where they cruely suffocate
shoot with harpoons, to tear their body from the inside
we poison their habitat until it´s too late
we must change the course - you just have to decide

captain to engine room: full speed back!
on this course we will run aground!
captain to first mate: HARD TO PORT!
let’s turn around and stop the attack

like pirates they give a shit on international law
their eyes are blind and their hearts are cold as ice
with bloodlust they sharpen their huge saw
they kill peaceful beings – for what purpose and price?

if you take just one look into their eyes, you’ll embark on a journey to the deepest depths of your soul
why can´t you hear their cries?
why can´t you hear their cries?

captain to engine room: full speed back!
on this course we will run aground!
captain to first mate: HARD TO PORT!
let’s turn around and stop the attack
Track Name: Sing La-La
I bet you know these days
when everyone arround you seems to be an idiot
just some guys from another galaxy
when you believe you are the only surviving intelligence

It´s like you say: please!
and they say: bla bla bla
and you say: think!
and they say: bla bla bla

WHAT???

just stick your fingers in the ears
squeeze your eyes shut and sing laa laa laa
when you hear nothing anymore
it´s not such a stupid thing
Just sing laa laa laa la la...
Just sing la la la la la la...

they have no own opinion
because they´re not able use
the white mass in their hollow heads
they babble the phrases of their leaders
and they believe you are more stupid than them

It´s like you say: please!
and they say: bla bla bla
and you say: think!
and they say: bla bla bla

WHAT???

just stick your fingers in the ears
squeeze your eyes shut and sing laa laa laa
when you hear nothing anymore
it´s not such a stupid thing
Just sing laa laa laa la la...
Just sing la la la la la la...

which sinful creator is responsible for these idiots?
where have they been, as “brain for free” was issued for all?
it´s like you say:

just stick your fingers in the ears
squeeze your eyes shut and sing laa laa laa
when you hear nothing anymore
it´s not such a stupid thing
Just sing laa laa laa la la...
Just sing la la la la la la...

WHAT??
Track Name: Ben
let me tell you my story. maybe it will help you to choose compassion.

when I was born and took the first breath
i was taken away from my mother
i could not understand what happened
it felt as this is the death
my mom screamed and called for me
at this time I did not know
that I’ll never see her again
i will never see her again

if you can hear me, then listen carefully
my name is Ben, not 01708
let me just express one wish to thee
for you its something easyly to create:
a world in which all earthlings get a chance
for a better life and run free.

they put me in a stable to many others
they left us alone. Some of us where crying
we where trembling from fear and cold
don´t you have mercy on me and my brothers?
we all wondered why this has had to happen?
why are you doing this to us?
because it hurts so bad.
because it hurts so bad.

if you can hear me, then listen carefully
my name is Ben, not 01708
let me just express one wish to thee
for you its something easyly to create:
a world in which all earthlings get a chance
for a better life and run free.

and when my time has come and they lead me to the slaughter
i closed my eyes and waited for death
at least I was humbled by the hangman's laughter
i thought now I take my last breath
only a strange woman could hear my prayer
as an Angel of light she led me away from the slayer.

this is the truth. this is our story
i‘m only one of a million others
now I live on an animal sanctuary
beside my abused sisters and brothers.
as an unwanted by-product of cruel diary industry
i got a chance to live and now Now I can run free

if you can hear me, then listen carefully
my name is Ben, not 01708
let me just express one wish to thee
for you its something easyly to create:
a world in which all earthlings get a chance
for a better life and run free
Track Name: Until Death and far Beyond
it was an ice cold Valentine's Day
when I saw you the first time a few years ago
the clouds above me where black and grey
how important you´d become for me, I did not know

10.000 books would not be enough
to describe how grateful I am to you
at the time as my life was so tough
you gave me your hand and led me through
like an angel with broken wings
you do not come to rest like a vagabond
you should never forget that I will carry you
forever in my heart forever in my heart
until death and far beyond
until death and far beyond

I was convinced that you're an angel
who´s taking care of the grieving souls on earth
although you need a guardian angel yourself
and that´s not all what you really deserve

10.000 books would not be enough
to describe how grateful I am to you
at the time as my life was so tough
you gave me your hand and led me through
like an angel with broken wings
you do not come to rest like a vagabond
you should never forget that I will carry you
forever in my heart forever in my heart
until death and far beyond
until death and far beyond

and if there is ever anything what I can do for you
i´d move mountains, fight, hold and carry you too,
one word is enough, until then I will sing to you

10.000 books would not be enough
to describe how grateful I am to you
at the time as my life was so tough
you gave me your hand and led me through
like an angel with broken wings
you do not come to rest like a vagabond
you should never forget that I will carry you
forever in my heart forever in my heart
until death and far beyond
until death and far beyond

10.000 books would not be enough
to describe how grateful I am to you
