My Time is Waking

from Child's Play by Rettward von Doernberg

Aboard the Caravel exclusive


This is one of those pieces where everything was just right from the start. I just had to press "record" and the piece was done. It's one of those pieces where I later rubbed my eyes in amazement at how fast and easy it went.

Everything about the piece is improvised: The guitar came first, then the percussion (tapping on the guitar body), the harmonica, and finally the vocals. The lyrics are improvised, too.

What is the piece about? I don't know. But the mood and the enigmatic lyrics invite all sorts of speculation. I think it's quite dark…


My time is waking
My only path to hell

And you takin' saw
and when the time is saking
Season takes my way

So everyday I'm gonna take my time
and I'm waking for the dawn
Taking easy what is wanted

Can't you see?
Oh, can't you feel?
