The Same No More

Be My Mirror

be my mirror, be my mirror, be my mirror be my mirror

a bog of my own I sink, I freeze

defence or yielding drowns me deeper

I split off, as always

it’s melancholy that lets me laugh and saddens me

it’s melancholy that flavours my world and embitters me

be my mirror, be my mirror, be my mirror be my mirror

memories, indivisible from me

inexplicable to you - a bitter taste proves

I was there

it’s melancholy that gives me hold and shakes me

it’s melancholy that blends all matters and separates me

be my mirror, be my mirror, be my mirror be my mirror

it’s melancholy that flavours my world and embitters me

it’s melancholy that blends all matters and separates me

it’s melancholy that moulds my art and inspires me

be my mirror, be my mirror, be my mirror, be my mirror

Sweet Echo

been to millions of wharves

sat in empty ghost towns

that are begging for steps

to be pressed on their grounds

sweet echo I call for you

repeat my screams made of pine trees

sweet echo I call for you

repeat my screams made of pine trees

keep dying through seasons

wait every single year

been like I‘ve always been

waking up is my fear

sweet echo I call for you

repeat my screams made of pine trees

sweet echo I call for you

repeat my screams made of pine trees

 

I am alone when they come

always alone when they come

loyal in my loneliness

I am alone when they come

always alone when they come

loyal in my loneliness

sweet echo I call for you

repeat my screams made of pine trees

sweet echo I call for you

repeat my screams made of pine trees

sweet echo I call for you

repeat my screams made of pine trees

sweet echo

Allure

I walk on clouds of stones

lightness and downfall filling my bones

 

shadows chasing on guard

action and numbness throwing me hard

 

a maddening threshold

freedom and cages all uncontrolled

 

letting go the allure

flying or crashing

one will be sure

 

let yourself fall

into the trees from above

enjoy how you float

on the blankets of love

until you slowly descend

to the soft cushioned ground

and rest in sweet dreams

until wakening sound

 

I walk on clouds of stones

lightness and downfall filling my bones

letting go the allure

flying or crashing one will be sure

What If

oh my, you give, I take 

what if I cannot hold to live?

what if you cannot forgive?

what if we end up in a song like this, this?

noise of today

rushes through my head

leaving behind voices

of those I had met

what if I cannot forget?

what if they are all I ever said, said?

what if all shall be eternalised like that, that?

oh my, what if?

all traces spoken 

in the light of time

turning into matter

that soon will be mine

 

what if I cannot ever shine?

what if they destroy my shrine, shrine?

what if all shall die with me in time?

oh my, what if?

oh my, you give, I take 

what if I cannot hold to live?

what if we end up in a song like this?

what if we end up in a song like this, this?

what if?

Story of Stars

echoes of crows in the air

travelling to my soul in despair

setting free a gloomy feel

of the things that might reveal

I listen to nature so I can hear

look at the stars to see me clear

grey shades of daylight

descend upon me

ease me softly

hear my plea

sprinkle the sky with my sad glory

look at the stars that tell my story

sprinkle the sky with my sad glory

look at the stars that tell my story

things my soul kept locked inside

now no longer can abide

burden for my soul I face you now

hidden wells no longer can allow

 

I listen to nature so I can hearl

look at the stars to see me clear

grey shades of daylight

descend upon me

ease me softly

hear my plea

 

sprinkle the sky with my sad glory

look at the stars that tell my story

sprinkle the sky with my sad glory

look at the stars that tell my story

Today

most days I’m swimming in my mind

hoping to discover new shores

always, I end up where I started from

my path is yet to come

most days I walk along with you

hoping to discover you

always, I end up on my own

my path is mine alone

today it seemed the day did not wake up

just as I did not awaken

to my life it seemed

today it seemed the day did not wake up

just as I did not awaken to my life it seemed

today

most days I’m curled in piles of faults

how I long to stretch out on you

resting on cooling ground

my life started when I had drowned

and now calm air will come

how I crave that peace

leaves me in tune with you

my life started when you withdrew

today it seemed the day did not wake up

just as I did not awaken

to my life it seemed

today it seemed the day did not wake up

just as I did not awaken to my life it seemed

today

On a Bird's Wing

on a bird’s wing

I rode to a magical shore

we flew to a place

a place I’ve never been before

when I returned

I was the same no more

when I returned

I was the same no more

when I returned

when I returned

longing to fly

next time the black bird came

but the bird passed by

cause I was not the same

when I returned

when I returned

when I returned

Train Window

like the train rushes through the land

so my mind passes by all that stand

sometimes I catch a being or a church

even graves resting under a birch

when my thoughts overwhelm

leaping in my head

when my thoughts overwhelm

I step behind my mind

when my thoughts overwhelm

in stillness they embed

 

my mind drifts to peoples aims

what they might feel even their names

when that old church was put in place

who took rest under the birches space

when my thoughts overwhelm

leaping in my head

when my thoughts overwhelm

I step behind my mind

when my thoughts overwhelm

in stillness they embed

like the train rushes through our days

please get off to explore what stays

 

when my thoughts overwhelm

leaping in my head

when my thoughts overwhelm

I step behind my mind

when my thoughts overwhelm

in stillness they embed

Always Never

parallel lines never meet 

but we did so I took my seat

our street was long the pace aligned

tight together forever confined

you said always, I said never

I said always, you said never

you said always, I said never

so we fell apart together

always, never, together

you look at me but do you really see me?

you hear me, you understand?

you look at me but do you really see me?

you hear me, you understand?

touch, feel?

drove through storms, went on missions

we spoke less about turning point ambitions

you turned left I turned right

split in half crashed in flight

you said always, I said never

I said always, you said never

you said always, I said never

yo we fell apart together

always, never, together

you look at me but do you really see me?

you hear me, you understand?

you look at me but do you really see me?

you hear me, you understand?

touch, feel?

you said always, I said never

I said always, you said never

you said always, I said never

yo we fell apart together

you said always, I said never

so we fell apart together

Metamorphosis

have you ever shed yourself

the way a snake sheds its skin? 

leaving behind a shell

it is no longer comfortable in

the ultimate end it can leave a mess

the ultimate end it can leave a ghost

but probably no one knows

or will even notice

 

that I am going through a metamorphosis again

that I am going through a metamorphosis again

 

I’m changing like a butterfly, I’m changing like a butterfly

I’m changing like a butterfly, I’m changing like a butterfly

 

Imagining you the way I do

I remake your world til I’m an image to you

 

I wait for the light to crack in, I wait for the light to crack in

I wait for the light to crack in, I wait for the light to crack in

I wait for the light to crack in, I wait for the light to crack in

I wait

 

are you afraid for the crazy

that hides deep inside?

listen to the news of what they did

will you lift your lid?

the ultimate end I think too much

the ultimate end they think I'm fine

but probably no one knows

or will even notice

that I am going through a metamorphosis again

that I am going through a metamorphosis again

 

I’m changing like a butterfly, I’m changing like a butterfly

I’m changing like a butterfly, I’m changing like a butterfly

 

Imagining you the way I do

I remake your world til I’m an image to you

 

I wait for the light to crack in, I wait for the light to crack in

I wait for the light to crack in, I wait for the light to crack in

I wait for the light to crack in, I wait for the light to crack in

I wait

Light and Drum

let me follow you into your dream

to understand where you have been

into your darkest place I come

to give you light and play the drum

let me follow you into your dream

to understand your silent scream

to be the net in case you fall 

to face your ghosts and fight them all

and fight them all

let me follow you into your dream

and fight them all

to understand where you have been

and fight them all

let me follow you into your dream

and fight them all

to understand your silent scream

and fight them all

and fight them all

and fight them all

and fight them all
