THIS IS ME, A MONKEY IN THE MUSIC

 

 

Christian Bass asserts the moral right to be identified as the author of this lyric collection.

 

Is it possible that a photographer is hiding beyond a journalist? A writer beyond a photographer? And beyond a drop-out someone who's quite willing to have a career - but by his own rules and at his own time and place?

Can a man from Hamburg, Germany survive in Mauritius, Africa? And what's going on in such a man?

Many questions surround writer, photographer and journalist Christian Bass. In "This is me - a monkey in the music" he answers them all. He invites his readers to have a close look at his inner thoughts and fears. In his lyrics he talks about his ups and downs.

"This is me!" is a simple but self-confident statement of a man who has proven "If you really want something, there's always a way!"

PRELUDE

 

Lucky, there is no other word which describes my feeling towards this collection better than this one simple word. Lucky - I am lucky and also a little bit proud that you are here with me now and that I really can present you, dear Reader, the fourth edition of »This is me, a monkey in the music«.

What has changed? Hardly anything, except that I have rearranged the order of the lyrics and added some new photographs and poems. And of course the whole layout has changed completely. A face-lifting that brought it closer to the former idea I had when I first created this Book.

I guess and I hope that you will enjoy the short journey through my past. We will visit many stations of my adventurous life during this travel, not every stop will be fun but there is always a truth within. Like the first time, when I uploaded ‘This is me’, I still feel strange because you will get to know me much better after reading these poetic texts. You will enter my past, my sanctuary, not exactly a thing that I really like but something that is necessary. I really believe it is, that’s why I invite you to this – my – holy place.

Have a nice and safe journey!

 

Yours sincerely

Christian Bass

WHO AM I?

Who am I and who could I be?

Questions with no meaning at all

The right answer depends on me

Who am I and who could I be?

Nobody unless I am free

Sometimes I stand, sometimes I fall

Who am I and who could I be?

Questions with no meaning at all!

STRUGGLING WITH LIFE

Back in time I see this boy struggling with his life

Filled with dreams and high hopes; he fights to stay alive

His demons, his secret, lost in his own conflict

Not a boy yet a man, feeling betrayed and tricked

While he spent his childhood on the Hollywood Drive

Just his dreams of the Broadway let this boy survive

Turned his blues into a rocking mid-summer-night jive

Gave him a reason and answered why he got picked

Struggling with his life

His parents already were looking for a wife

A good decent woman that makes his name survive

Between duty and his loving heart he felt kicked

Disgusted with which future his parents have picked

Out of options for truth would hit them like a knife

Back in time I see myself struggling with my life!

Part One

 

THIS IS ME

 

THIS IS ME, I AM REAL!

 

One day I’ll return to the place

where my heart feels at home,

Where I was young and innocent

and never spent a day alone.

 

This is me! After more than six years the monkey in the music found his way home. When I wrote `Starting Something… Again´ in 2002/2003 I truly believed in the beginning of a change, from a teenager to a grown-up, even in my lyrics. Everything seemed possible and nothing prepared me for the hell I had to go through.

The high-quality lyrics in my head began to decay as soon as I wrote it down, absolutely nothing worked anymore. The harder I tried the less came out, what brought my soul's welfare in staggering, nevertheless, writing was my life, my inner psychologist and now this god-given skill had left me. I fell, deeper and deeper, whenever I thought it couldn’t get worse the ground under my feet sank once more. I fought, I despaired, and I tried all to defeat the writer’s block until I surrendered, proved in my destiny.

And then, suddenly, the change came, my batteries seemed to be charged again or I had found a topic on which I had to say something. Already for a long time I carried around the idea of writing my biography, giving the world a much closer look behind my mask than ‘Starting Something’ already did it.
