It was all true
A parlour strode, and the night sets forever
I stray in the quiet cold
And you gird me when I dare to listen

Elastic meadow, endless arms of sorrow
Lips try to form "because"
Trying to adapt to the wilderness
Where even foes close their eyes and leave

We are inside the glade
Every now and then I wipe the dust aside
To remember...

How I drape my face with my bare hands
The same that brought me here
But you were beyond all help
The folded message that wept my name

Shadows skulk at my coming
We survey the slopes
In search for the words to write the missing page
The tainted dogma

Time grows short
As the piper plays his tune
We are almost there

You are beyond all help
Dancing into the void
We are almost there

. . .


I will promise myself I won't care
Distracting myself from your stare
And I've seen this mistake once before
With your games I will never fall for
I've hung up my guns
I won't kill again

I won't forget you
I'm not gonna let you win
But I'm tired of lying
Tired of fighting you
And it's not gonna change

You asked for my heart
You know that I'm down
But not the way you lie to me and tear it all apart
And beg for me to stay
I've sailed off to sea
I'm not coming back

I won't forget you
I'm not gonna let you win
But I'm tired of lying
Tired of fighting you
And it's not gonna change

Counting down
Make that sounds
When you know it makes no sense
Counting down
Till you mess around
When I know you can't ever change
Why am I trembling
Throw it overboard
When I'm ready to we'll progress
Counting down
Make that sounds
Break the silence

Pretend it's not forever
I'll pull myself together
I'll say that I'll forget her, I'll breathe
And I'll say she never hurt me
And look at it as learning
And laugh about the good and the bad
Because I won't live forever
We don't belong together
I know I'll feel better
One day when I can make it through

I won't forget you
I'm not gonna let you win
But I'm tired of lying
Tired of fighting you
And it's not gonna change

. . .


I remember I was young
Not that i'm old, but I was young
I have lost all my sense
I'm a bit wiser, but lost my sense

And I know a few more lovely people
I can leave out
But I don't
'Cause that's not what I want
And I know a few more lovely people
I can leave out
But that's not what I want


I remember I was a smile
Now I hide, I used to smile
It is because of all hurry i have learned
To live by

I want to relax, cool down and think
'Everything is fine'
But it's not
It isn't like that right now
I want to relax, cool down and think
'Everything is fine'
But it isn't like that right now

I remember I was right
Not that i'm wrong, but i was right
I remember I was strong
Not that i'm weak, but i was strong

I believe that I should try hard
One more time and sing
'Everything is fine'
But it’s not
It isn't like that right now
I believe that I should try hard
One more time and sing
'Everything is fine'

. . .


In the name of desperation
I call your name
A lamentation I sigh
Again and again

Spiritual eclipse
The gateways are closed for me to seek

The night...
A veil of stars, watching
My shadow is born from light
The light of the eye, in darkness

Over troubled waters memories soar
Endlessly, searching night and day
The moonlight caresses a lonely hill
With the calmness of a whisper

I wear a naked soul
A blank face in the streaming water
It is cold in here
Frost scar my coat with dust

Eyes attach to your mute portrait
We spoke only through thoughts
Together we gazed, awaited
Hours brought thirst and the rising sun

Sunbirds leave their dark recesses
Shadows glid the archways

Do not turn your face towards me
Confronting me with my lonliness
You are in a forest unknown
The secret orchard
And your voice is vast and achromatic
But still so precious

Lullaby of the crescent moon took you
Mesmerized, its kaleidoscopic face
Granted you a hollow stare
Another soul within the divine herd

I have kept it
The amaranth symbol
Hiddin inside the golden shrine
Until we rejoice in the meadow
Of the end
When we both walk the shadows
It will set ablaze and vanish
Black rose immortal

It is getting dark again
Dusk shuffle across the fields
The evening trees moan as if they knew
At night I always dream of you



. . .


I thought we'd be together forever.
But it seems I was wrong and everything's falling apart. Think of what I've done for you.
Think of all that we've been through.
I hope every time he breaks your heart you think of me
and how I was to you.
Everything's falling apart.
One day you'll see just how good I was.
And I thought that we'd be together forever.

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.
