new music from a new man

You & I

when you will regret, it will be too late 
no I won’t wait, for you again 
you and I together, could have been so great, 
and yet, you failed to understand 

darling I am not angry, I just can’t see 
why is that the way, it has to be 
holding other hips, to forget your song, 
and then you turn to tell me that I’m wrong 

darling I hoped for you and I 
now I know you never really gave it a try 
darling I longed for you and I 
now I know it wasn’t more than just a sweet lie 

It could have been a love song, about your smile 
the one you send me, when you see me from a mile 
we should have been together, singing duet 
but I am singing solo with no accompaniment 

It must have been a symphony, about your pretty face 
instead I go and see you, with someone else 
Anothony and Iris, sitting on the bend, 
waiting for this opera to end 

darling I hoped for you and I ... 

darling I hoped for, 
darling I longed for, 
darling I wish you would have give it a try


It Feels Like a Mantra

it feels like we're moving but we're still here 
it feels like we're moving but we're still here, 
it's so clear 

it feels like we're moving but we're still here 
it feels like we're moving but we're still here, 
it's so clear 

ahhhh ahhhh 
ahhhh ahhhh 
ahhhh ahhhh 

it feels like we're moving but we're still here 
it feels like we're moving but we're still here, 
it's so clear 

it feels like we're moving but we're still here 
it feels like we're moving but we're still here, 
it's so clear 

I've heard it all before, 
I've been here I remember 
now they're knocking on my door 
i know exactly where we're going 
I just cannot fight anymore 

ahhhh 
ahhhh 

it fells like we're still here but we're moving 
moving


Practicing Catharsis

I’m here cause I want to 
I’m here cause it’s what I chose 
so let’s get it over 
I said let’s get it over with 
just do what you have to

I’m here cause I need to pay for my sins 
so let’s start it over

I dare you to stop me everybody has to pay 

some how

some how 
I’m not going to lay here and frown 
everybody has to pay 

I’m here cause I want to 
I’m here cause I want to 
I guess that’s what I wanted 
and that’s exactly what I deserve 

don’t make it easy 
don’t you dare showing no pity for me 
everybody has to pay

Poor Lorraine

the day is almost done 
now she’s rushing to the gate 
she can’t afford herself being late 
yes, every wednesday evening 
you could find her on the railroad stop 

she knows that only once a week 
there is that magical half an-hour 
seven trains go by exactly one after the other 
oh poor Lorraine, 
she came to visit the rumbling train 

cause when it’s getting loud 
and she feels the trembling ground 
she knows no one can hear a sound 
and only there peace can be found 
when she can scream 

Aaahhhh!!.. 

oh no she’s not taking a train 
no she’s not going anywhere 
long ago she gave up on herself 
still, every wednesday evening 
you could find her on the railroad stop 

cause when it’s getting loud 
and she feels the trembling ground 
she knows no one can hear a sound 
and only there peace can be found 
when she can scream 

Aaahhhh!!.. 

the last train now has gone 
and she is standing all alone 
slowly slowly guilt start taking on 
oh poor Lorraine 
that’s the only way she can carry on 

Aaahhhh!!..


Higher

everybody’s thinking ‘bout themselves all the time 
everyone around and so am I 
and everybody’s taking their own shit so seriously 
and honestly I can’t see why 

no one seems to mind about the mess they left behind 
and if no one seems to mind so why should I 
cause everybody’s thinking bout themselves all the time 
everyone around and mostly I 

I’m trying to be better than this 
I can see and I can feel it 
oh, I just don’t know where to start 
I’m gonna go higher above 
and I came to take you with me 
Oh I’m gonna go 
even without you 
without you 

everyone I know is so fucking insecure 
so they take a drug’ they need a cure 
yes, everyone I know is dependent on a lie, 
is leaning on a cure 
everyone I know and I know myself 

I’m trying to be better than this 
I can see and I can feel it 
oh, I just don’t know where to start 
I’m gonna go higher above 
and I came to take you with me 
Oh I’m gonna go 
even without you 
without you 

no one wants to be all alone by themselves 
no one wants but that’s where we feel safe 
cause everybody’s thinking ‘bout what everybody’s thinking 
it’s too much thinking 
all the time, all around, everyone is so... 

everybody’s searching who’s in charge for this shame 
just show the man we’ll burn him with our flame 
you see, I’ve done looking for my fools, I have no name, 
we know we need someone to blame so here I am


Failure Meditation Attempts

breath in, breath out 
don’t think about anything at all 
breath in, breath out 
just let your mind be empty, there’s no goal 

who am I kidding 
I’m incapable of winning 
only myself that I’m bruising 
I’m incapable of loosing 
of choosing 
so what am I, 
supposed to do, 
just sit here and watch me fall apart 

breath out 
just let your thoughts run in front of you 
breath in, breath out 
just let it go, there’s nothing you can do 

who am I kidding 
I’m incapable of winning 
only myself that I’m bruising 
I’m incapable of loosing 
of choosing 
so what am I, 
supposed to do, 
just sit here and watch me fall apart 

breath in, breath out ... 

just let it go, there’s nothing you can do 
just let it go, there’s nothing you can do 

I wanna let it got, it’s just so hard to do 
I wanna let it go, I am I really do 

will you forgive yourself, we are all so proud of you 
will you forgive yourself, we are all so proud of you 

what's meant to happen happens so they say 
just let it go and soon will come your day 

breath out
