The track "Ein Gespenst geht um" A Ghost Haunts , an oblique political commentary which drew on a quotation by Karl Marx about political change in the air although the ghost here haunted a Mitropa restaurant rather than Europa , and the song seemed somewhat prescient in light of the fall of the Berlin Wall in November that year.
However, the end of communism did not lead to a breakthrough for Silly. Although Danz had petitioned the East German government for change during , and illegally read out petitions during the band's concerts, interest in East German bands plummeted after November 9, , when East Germans were able to cross into West Germany and easily get their hands on western rock music. Danz performed as a backup singer at a massive free concert featuring the likes of Joe Cocker following the Wall opening.
She later expressed skepticism that her involvement with the Neues Forum reform movement had produced any results. At the same time, however, the West German label Ariola believed Silly could be turned into a household name across all of Germany.
The band were invited to Bavaria to work on a new album. But Danz felt constrained by the Ariola executives, who deemed the band's songs not commercial, and provided them with chart-friendly music and lyrics by outside writers.
Silly walked out. Again, the lyrics were penned by Danz and Gundermann, separately and together; as the album's title suggests, they were angry. The song "Neider" The Enviers addresses the band's treatment at the hands of Ariola. The album closer, "Traumpaar" Dream Couple imagines the two German states as a dancing pair, die Schlampe und der Held — the whore and the hero. The group's concerts once again sold out. After the album, Danz, Hassbecker, and Barton began building their own recording studio in Berlin, named Danzmusik.
Fritzsching, the band's founder, whose guitar contributions had become overshadowed by those of Hassbecker, was asked to leave the band. Late during the recording for the follow-up, Paradies , in , Danz was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although she was operated on immediately, the disease had spread, and she refused chemotherapy , instead choosing an ineffective alternative medicine treatment.
She died the following July, five months after the album had come out. Shortly before her death, she married Hassbecker, her live-in partner of many years; she said this was in part to avoid taxes on her share of the studio. Paradies was the first album on which Danz alone had written the lyrics, and several of its song seem to reflect on her impending death, although Danz denied this, saying that the words had been written before her diagnosis.
The album was photographed by the band's old friend Jim Rakete. Despite minimal publicity, and the lack, for obvious reasons, of a tour, it sold reasonably well, and its title track became a radio hit.
The band did not break up after Danz's death; the remaining members Barton, Hassbecker, Rezniczek, and Junck completed two unfinished tracks for inclusion on a pair of greatest hits albums, the first of which sold well over , copies, no small achievement for a compilation of an East German band.
The remaining members performed Silly's songs on tour on two occasions, the first "borrowing" singer Toni Krahl from the band City for a number of one-off performances, and in using several well-known singers on a German tour promoted as a tribute to both Danz and Junck, who had died of cancer earlier in the year.
