Phil John Kneis:
CONSIDERATIO - JUST LIVING I:
JUST SOMETHING NEW
Neustift-Volderau, July 26th, 1996 - P#23

I.
Just waking up from long a night,
Just seeing all the bright new light,
Just washing eyes to see the sky,
Just greeting sun up there so high.

Just something new,
Just something good.

II.
This is a new morning,
This is a new chance,
Let's watch our being
With a fully new glance.

Just something new,
Just something good.

III.
Let's start a new thinking,
Let's start a new praying,
Let's start build a linking
To create a new world.

Just something new,
Just something good.

IV.
Now look all around you,
Now start just within you,
And give what is in you
Just to the whole world.

Just something new,
Just something good.

V.
Don't think of you proudly,
Don't laugh of them loudly,
Don't think of you only
You can start just anew.

Just something new,
Just something good.

VI.
Just having fears nevermore,
Just throwing those tears away,
Just being alone no more,
Just trying find a new way.

Just something new,
Just something good.

CONSIDERATIO - JUST LIVING II:
JUST BREATHING FREE
Neustift-Volderau, July 30th, 1996 - P#24

I.
Just fleeing the world for today,
Just thinking no more time is cheap,
Just coming to rest now this day,
Just getting one piece of a sleep.

Just breathing free,
Just thinking free.

II.
Now don't think important of you,
Now don't think too well of your score,
Now don't think of work or plans too,
Now don't think at all anymore.

Just breathing free,
Just thinking free.

III.
How well just prepared have you been,
How nice just a face have you worn,
How much of the world have you seen,
How many just nerves have you torn.

Just breathing free,
Just thinking free.

IV.
Please may you now take one step less
And look just a moment around,
See what you might've caused of a mess
And listen just to the world's sound.

Just breathing free,
Just thinking free.

V.
Let silence come over you soon,
Let quietness reign more of your time,
Let guided your night by the moon,
Let more of your doings just rhyme.

Just breathing free,
Just thinking free.

VI.
Just calm yourself and do not ask,
Just do not forget you're alive,
Just be prepared for each new task,
Just don't miss it ever: It`s life.

Just breathing free,
Just thinking free.

CONSIDERATIO - JUST LIVING III:
JUST DO NOT FORGET
Eichwalde, September 9th, 1996 - P#26

I.
Just tell me what it's all about,
Just tell to me but do not shout,
Just say it now, what did I wrong,
Just join me and do run along.

Just do not forget,
But please do forgive.

II.
I listen to you now this time,
Haven't heard you yesterday's time,
Didn't want me to hear this voice,
Now do please leave me no more choice.

Just do not forget,
But please do forgive.

III.
No choice left now than to repair,
To bring along bright, fresh new air,
And both of us start breathing free,
May all of us start living free.

Just do not forget,
But please do forgive.

IV.
Just do not forget what we've done,
Just do not we lie to The Son,
Just let us learn from our sour past,
And hope this day won't be the last.

Just do not forget,
But please do forgive.

V.
What fools have we been, awful cruel,
How bad did we learn in this school,
The school of life as we know it,
Lesson of death as we saw it.

Just do not forget,
But please do forgive.

VI.
The more the times we would forget,
The more the times we would regret.
Let's find for ourselves a new cure
And future will bless us for sure.

Just do not forget,
But please do forgive.

CONSIDERATIO - JUST LIVING IV:
JUST RUNNING AWAY
Schneverdingen, September 28th, 1996 - P#28

I.
Just running away,
Don't know where to stay,
Don't know where to go,
Don't know what to know.

Just running away,
But know where to stay.

II.
Just keep ignoring all the world's pace,
I do not follow those the world's ways,
I do not want to want the world's things,
I do not want to think what the world thinks.

Just running away,
But know where to stay.

III.
Staying a stranger all my time here,
Just don't react every time with this fear,
This fear of life as we know it,
This fear of future we call it.

Just running away,
But know where to stay.

IV.
Can't understand people around me,
Can't find to them the needed right key,
Don't live my life as they do.
Don't feel ashamed or a fool.

Just running away,
But know where to stay.

V.
I can't just be strange to myself
Nor do I oppose any one's else -
I'm just as strange as to me you are,
The distance between us is too far.

Just running away,
But know where to stay.

VI.
Just keeping the distance - and learning to grow,
Understanding the common and eager to know.
But my self is a secret and so is your own,
Use no force, so it's better than ev'rything's known.

Just running away,
But know where to stay.

CONSIDERATIO - JUST LIVING V:
JUST LIVING THIS DAY
Špindlerův Mlýn, February 7th, 1997 - P#43

I.
Just living, not thinking,
The lights that are blinking
Are leading us high,
It seems, we could fly.

Just living this day
And find a new way.

II.
Just fly to the stars,
To Venus and Mars,
To planets and light,
As far as you might.

Just living this day
And find a new way.

III.
And thinking no more
Of problems that tore
Your soul so apart,
To pieces your heart.

Just living this day
And find a new way.

IV.
Away now this stuff!
And don't think you're tough,
And don't say a tone
Of lights that once shone.

Just living this day
And find a new way.

V.
What shone is now cold,
The soil is now sold
That once was your own
But now you're alone.

Just living this day
And find a new way.

VI.
Alone with your fear,
And empty so sheer,
But hope shall remain
And future you'll gain.

Just living this day
And find a new way.
