"Radio Orchid" as written by Jens Krause, Thorsten Wingenfelder and Kai-uwe Wingenfelder....
There's an old lady living in an old house
Since her husband died she hasn't been out
She lives in her own world with her own little nightmares
And she's stopped counting the days

She buys a radio station with her husbands legacy
She does her own show 10 hours a day
Plays poems and listens lets feelings run free
Helps people talk their pain away

So if your world falls down
Can't see the light of day
Call the lady call the station today
And listen

This is radio orchid listen and cry
To all the others that suffer and die
This is radio orchid listen and cry
Take your lonely heart and let fly

Sending her message she's solving the problems
Of millions and millions and who solves hers
The old lady gets older still lives in her old house
But when she dies we'll all live alone

So if your world falls down
Can't see the light of day
Call the lady call the station today

This is radio orchid listen and cry
To all the others that suffer and die
This is radio orchid listen and cry
Take your lonely heart and let fly

Take your lonely heart and let fly

So if your world falls down
Can't see the light of day
Call the lady call the station today

This is radio orchid listen and cry
To all the others that suffer and die
This is radio orchid listen and cry
Take your lonely heart and let fly

Take your lonely heart

    General CommentThis is a great song, one of my favorites. It's unfortunate not many people know about this band in the US.

    General CommentOi. Howyadoin, I'm in the US and I love this album. Radio Orchid Is actually kind of a sad song, and It's followed up well by the song with a rather angry tone, Waiting for Paradice.

    General Commentrobinjay490, it’s funny you say it’s a sad song…I see it as an inspirational, happy song…..an old woman with nothing to live for spends all her money and time to help other people in need and make them feel better, helping “millions and millions” in the process.

    That aside, it’s just a quality song, really well produced, and one of the catchiest choruses ever! Quite an lifteruperrer for me.

    I’m in England and am yet to meet anyone who’s ever heard of this band.

    General Commentdon't know if anybody still looks at this post, but Fury in the Slaughter House was one of my faves. Does anybody know where I could find their first cd, since mine has gone tragically MIA?
