Silver Mine


Oh I know, you would mind if we stayed
And for sure, we return to the estate
On the rope, stepping down
The last tray
Burned our plans

Wait and hold
A silver mine for all
Can’t be hold
Out of my way

Can’t see
Will you be around?

Oh I know, all the strain
Yes it pays for a long time
On the rope, stepping down the last tray
Burned our plans
Got things straight

Wait and hold
A silver mine for all
Can’t be hold
Out of my way


Uphill


I see her and she’s waving
On the pavement, why indeed?
All I say gives her the creeps
At the bus stop and it’s raining
One last wish, two replays
Slow decay
That gives her the creeps

I recall the way to go

Her scarf shows deer in forest
The ones we do not eat
Oh I stray
Gives her the creeps
What were you up to?
I can’t stand to find you
It’s best to breath all the time

A waste of color
But they still ask for more
When will we get on?

On the bright side
Are we happy?

Parking Place


Waitin’ on somethin’ to move
Let my eyes wander over the roofs

I changed my mind
You stop at nothin’
Holdin’ on tight
I’ve been waitin’ for too long
Someplace else can not be wrong
Away…

Waitin’ on somethin’ to move
I can’t turn my head down

I changed my mind
You stop at nothin’
Holdin’ on tight
I’ve been waitin’ for too long
Someplace else can not be wrong
Away…
Far away…

I’m waitin’ on something

Screwdrivers


Can you name every place
On this green boat?
I wanna tell you
Can you hold on to this?
Perfidious dreams
Should we give out now?

I know you’re here
They can’t see you

Can you name all the grace
On this green boat?
I wanna tell you
Can you hold on to this?
Affectionate dreams
Should I give out now?

I’m in way over my head
You mean this

Can you name…
I know you’re here
But they can’t see you

Can you name…
Everything?
I know you’re here
But they can’t see you

So Close


So close
Yet too far away for you to see it
So close
Even though it could run in all directions
So close
Unfamiliar, as never before

We won’t conquer
This place if I don’t run
Into the same direction
No, we won’t conquer
This place if I don’t run
Into the same direction

So close
With intent to hold out for a while now
Yes, it’s true, might break the silence
But if you stay I’ll promise
This time no rewind

No more time to waste on you

20 Years Later


20 years later
It all falls apart
I have no glue where
It’s got to
Wandering the alley
Plants seem unreal
A space between our hands

Don’t wanna call it done
We need some time
Don’t wanna call it done
Did I?
We’re on the line!

20 years later
My waves are still true
Another crazy world onshore
Phrases feel different
When I look you in the eyes
I miss the smell
Of writing paper

Don’t wanna call it done
But in the long run
We just pretend to get along
We’re on the line!

Don’t wanna call it done
We need some time
Don’t wanna call it done
Did I?
Well meant but backfired
I go where the sea takes me
And no one’s sorry


Back to Top

Light Breeze

Shiny hills to climb onto
Are waiting anywhere
My jeans look way too cool
Stain this poor affair

I’m here to say hello
And if you turn I won’t ask you why

Shiny hills to climb onto
Have been there all the while

No need to seek a final rule
I just don’t wanna go
I never wanna go

I’m here to say hello
And if you turn I won’t ask you why

A place to hide forgotten fears
And a light breeze keeps blowing them away
Fo no longer will I be drowned in tears
Leaving tools of no use feels okay
All okay


Back to Top

Rounded Corners

It’s you around the corner
I can look right through
No need to pay attention
You’re bound inside my mind

I stay and have a look down this road
A look down the road

That’s you around the corner
There’s way more
It seems that I can look right through
Way more
No need to pay attention
There’s way more
You’re bound inside my mind
Way more


Back to Top

Silent Laughter

Wanna hold back
Like every time
Hidden basement
We cross the line
Guess you know

We just play along
Against the rules
Sweeping lane change
Trouble to refuel
Guess you know

Wanna see you
And still look through
A change of scene is
Long overdue
Guess you know

Abound in these adventures
Still out of place
Ugly birds
Tailored to aerospace
Guess you know

You know

Silent laughter
And I blame it on you
Not surprising
Our curtain may fall soon

Silent laughter

Never resting
Nor moving on
We’re floating in this
Familiar zone
Guess you know

Abound in these adventures
Still out of place

Silent laughter
And I blame it on you
Not surprising
Our curtain may fall soon

Silent laughter

Silent laughter
And I blame it on you
For now
Not surprising
Our curtain may fall soon

Silent laughter

Gimbal

You touch the ground
And think it’s done
Some years behind
Still kept on the run
There’s dust and stones
Weightless as bones
A single time you blinked
Indeed

I don’t trust anything I hear
As this all sounds the same my dear
Have you lost anything but fear?
Are you still there?
Are you with me?

As from now we consider how
To stay here all the time
We don’t know much at all

So precious and kind
Indifference combined
With senses out of our minds
Just senses out of our minds

You touch the ground
And think it’s done
We’re on the run
It’s never done

Is this your plan?
A look behind?
Just a single look this time?

We sense and failed
A momentary jail
Cool down and chill
Still hard as nails
Never fear
You’re almost done
You’ll soon return with the blazing sun

Can you survive without advise?
Are you with me?

As from now we consider how
To stay here all the time
We don’t know much at all

I wanna stay here
At all
I wanna stay here
Please stay here

As from now we consider how
To stay here all the time


Back to Top

Idaho

To be in line
With things imposed on me
Is something I detest and never get
Strength and gaze you own
Outrun my faith in good

To think I’m fine
When the spoon slips out of my hand
It’s something I detest and can’t let go
Strength and gaze you own
Outrun my faith in good

No, I can’t ignore
What I once found right
Deep inside
No, I can’t ignore
What I once found right
Now I know constructs can break


Back to Top

Impressed

You can never get through this
No, you can never get through this
But sometimes it feels so…

Will you go and feel closer to me?
I don’t know
Will you go and steal moments from me?
I don’t know

How should I know?


Back to Top

Blockades

And you’re the color now
Whatever comes now
Forgive


Back to Top

Faint

I’m sure you know it
What you have been told
And you blow it
The story has grown old
Apply some pressure
This here is able to bend
Some things happen
Somewhere you can’t be tonight

Pull the strings and wait
This plan may not derail

Some days stay anyway
Holding it down

I’m sure you know it
As you always do
It’s undisputed
They just don’t have a clue
’Bout time to wonder
How droll the script has changed
You disconnected

The waste, the gray
Is what it’s all up to
The doors, the heat
Too much inside
Consider me what you feel
I will follow you


Back to Top

Foreign Scenes

One step, it takes some time to realize
You’re gone but I still can hear
Unrepressed sighs
In fact, it’s not intended as it seems
You’re off and I’m caught
Deep inside this dream

You shouldn’t fear
’Cause the last train takes you home
This strange farewell and the haze
It will all be gone
You shouldn’t dare
To engage in foreign scenes
As long as long
No one cares
You’re safe from me

Correct me if it’s out of control
To breathe is not easy but this plays a role
One step, it takes more time to realise
I will continue to adore my favorite lies

You shouldn’t fear
’Cause the last train takes you home
This strange farewell and the haze
It will all be gone
You shouldn’t dare
To engage in foreign scenes
As long as long
No one cares
You’re safe from me

I couldn’t find the last days in my head
They would save all


Back to Top

Do Some Steps

Just do some steps and face some air
It’s nice not to be inside
And when there are no streets or lights
I guess I’m almost there
So go, just go
And do some little steps again
Just do some little steps again

My shoes are tight, that’s all I need
And the rest will be okay
And there are no rails that could hold me back
This view refreshes my disease

My self-made disease
A self-made disease

And when it’s all in line
Within my grasp
All but time
There’s still some beauty in this face
I know it could flow but I won’t care
As long as I show
That I get on with it


Back to Top

Plain and Ridge

Have you ever seen
A place that no one else can find or reach?
So I do today
The concrete walls
Do not impress me like they should
It all seems so far away to me

And ever since we fail to understand

It’s obvious where to go
No need for us to keep anything
One by one will be washed overboard

I see rotten plants
Poisoned by these good ideas
But they still add color to the scene
Would you agree with me?
Is it pretty when the sky falls down
Or am I just alone?


Back to Top

Just Went Blind

When reasons that I know
Will end in talk
And every step I go
Needs to be turned around
Then it’s Good Mornin’
When artificial light
Can’t save this walk
And tales of tonight
Need to be rearranged
Then it’s Good Mornin’

When archetypes are lone
Adamant at the same time
And I can’t avert my eyes
And not tire of it
Then it’s my Everyday

When reasons that I know
Will end in talk
And every step I go
Needs to be turned around
Then it’s my Everyday

Want to win this cup?
Just follow me
I hold lots of reserves
Of things I hide
Remain some time

Want to win this cup?
Just follow me
When I go blind
I hold lots of reserves
Of things I hide
Remain some time
’Till I can shine

Score, applause, do I look good?
So good!
I just went blind
As I don’t waste more time
Waste no more time
With sentiments that ain’t real at all
I wonder, can this beat Sunday?
Oh no

Want to win this cup?
Just follow me
I just went blind
I hold lots of reserves of things I hide
Remain some time
’Till I can shine

The Comfort Of Absence

Yes I can still remember
This one September
And the trouble we ran into
And I do not recall it
I stand by
Anything said and done

But as I know
You’re not in now I complain
I feel a mistake
That I have looked for in vain

More than ever
This here is just for you
Better late than never
It’s been a long time
Since we have split our way in two

And I smile
To avoid distance
I take the risk when
Talking ’bout you once in a while
But I am still not pleased with
The situation getting better every day

What can I say?
It’s too late
To argue over anything that has hurt

Have you seen this light before?

And now I know
We fail to speak
’Cause we are not
In the driver’s seat
No I don’t think we are
We are


Back to Top

Magic Bullet

Now you have gone too far
I restart to like the way you are
And it’s true
I wish you’re doing fine
And you won’t regret
A plain silence
Is all that I get

Whenever you decode my lines
Or search the conversation
I will appraise
The late compassion

When you encounter me
The look speaks volumes as I see
You feel better off alone
And you are all smiles
It hurts to conceive that time flies


Back to Top

All

With great eyes and with space
With notions out of place
It makes sense, in a sense
But that’s all

With great eyes and slow pace
With good grace
It makes sense, in a sense
But that’s all

The great course has been a long time
Coming after sparse fireworks
That makes sense but that’s all
Now I dare to ask why

That’s all I can expect
Is this all?
That’s all I can expect
Is this all?


Back to Top

This Time

I take a breath and inhale the truth
And rightly so
All wings are cut off and so are you

I traced it until here
Never quite knowing for sure
What to fear
I like this view

And this time I carry on
And this time
I wanna know you better at all
Allright
This time I turn the tide

It’s not in line with my ideas
Completely undesigned
All things are cut off
And that’s fine

I can’t fool myself
She wasn’t off the shelf
But it will stop
The sound of assailing roofs
If I can touch
A warm hand beside as proof
Yes I really like this view

Will this stem the tide?
This time I turn the tide!
