REFLECTION
Introversion has its price
You pay in retrospect
Integrity is not worth a thing
You know when you’re left out
I’ve often tried to become
someone that I’ve seen
Difficult and hard to grasp
In a magazine
Invested so much effort in
looking at what’s happening
Not daring to take part of things
but deadly fast at commenting
It made a person out of me
Someone I’m not proud to be

Now I’ve a reached a point in life
when insight comes to me

I keep it to myself, but sometimes I regret
those introspective days, that passed in my life

I forgot who I am
and what I’m doing here
This piece of earth that was given me
was starting to dissolve
Loneliness and sadness grew
I started to retreat
to a comfort zone within myself
where I found a piece of me
A piece I’ve nourished ever since
that piece has grown immense

Now I’ve a reached a point in life
when insight comes to me

I keep it to myself, but sometimes I regret
those introspective days, that passed in my life

I keep it to myself, but sometimes I regret
I’ve got no one to blame, but myself
Just myself

 

NOTHINGNESS
My heavy breathing
and my anxiety, tell me I want out
And there’s something inside me,
that tells me we’re lying
And it feels so wrong, it feels so wrong

Then you say to me
Now it’s time, time to say goodbye
We have lost all that we had
Inside my heart, I’m full of nothingness
Nothingness

My thoughts are deceiving,
but my body is revealing our decay
I know that you feel it,
the pain that we’re going through
And it feels so wrong, It feels so wrong

Then you say to me
Now it’s time, time to say goodbye
We have lost all that we had
Inside my heart I’m full of nothingness
Nothingness

We are scared to be ourselves
Now it falls apart
Love has turned its back on us
There’s nothing left to save

Now it’s time, time to say goodbye
We have lost all that we had
Inside my heart I’m full of nothingness
Nothingness

I’m full of nothingness

 

MINUS TEN DEGREES
It’s minus ten degrees and it’s freezing cold
How will I make it through this winter,
when all hope is gone?
The reflection in the mirror is blinding my eyes
My hands are shaking and my feet hurt
This is how it is to live in the north

My mind takes me away, where the sun shines,
on a clear day
Where birds are singing, like a wake up call
This is my wake up call

Dark at day, dark at night, the future is monochrome
The rays of hope have been eaten up by the dark
My life spark is suffocating, but I’m not giving in
I need your warm hand in mine, to survive this cold
May I hold it through this winter and in the storm?
My dream to escape, keeps me alive

It’s minus ten degrees

 

FRIENDS
Do they let you in,
although you’ve shut them out?
Do they cheer you up,
when you’re feeling sad?
Do they put you first,
even if you’re not bold?
Do they guide you home,
when you’ve wandered off?

Friends will support you, they have you covered
Friends will lift you, and they respect you
Friends will support you, they have you covered
Friends will lift you, and help you reveal yourself

But if they don’t stand beside you;
change friends

You deserve
real friends, true friends

Do they care for you,
when you’re not around?
Do they build you up,
when you’re insecure?

It’s who you’re with, that forever defines you
It’s where you go, that will refine your life

But if they don’t stand beside you;
change friends

 

HELLO WORLD
Hello world, it’s me again,
been away for a while
Just for a second now,
my head is above the surface
Sinking deeper into myself
My own worries,
my twisted view of life
Seems no one could help me out
Help me out

How do I get out?
Where do I go from here?
It’s a one way road to a place I don’t like
A state I hate, a mood I despise

The way that I am,
wasn’t the way I was supposed to be
Take me away, from this hopelessness I feel
No help is helpful, no words are worthwhile
And I wonder..

Hey world, would you miss me?

I’ve been here before,
I know the light will shine again
Though it seems so far away,
from where I am today

The way that I am,
wasn’t the way I was supposed to be
Take me away, from this hopelessness i feel
No help is helpful, no words are worthwhile
And I wonder..

Hey world, would you miss me?

 

THE LIFE WE COULD HAVE LIVED
You destroyed all that was so pure
You ignored all that was so true
Do you hate all of us who try?
I’m talking to you, but you won’t tell me
You won’t tell me

Why did you have to take everything from us?
What made you do everything you did?
You crashed and burned everything we had
You took the life we could have lived

What have we done to deserve all of this?
Why did you steal a life that wasn’t lived?
Now give it back all that you took
I’m talking to you but you won’t tell me
You won’t tell me

Why did you have to take everything from us?
What made you do everything you did?
You crashed and burned everything we had
You took the life we could have lived

 

(YOU PUT ME IN) ROBOT MODE
I made people laugh today
They all love me, so they say
A friend who gives good advice,
they seem to have realised
I guide my comrades safe and sound
I’m a man, who knows his way around
But close to home, it’s always the same
My steps slow down when I think of you

The way you speak, what you demand
it makes me shut my system down
You patronise, you drag me around
it makes me shut my system down

You put me in robot mode

Though we think in different ways,
you should agree, in this case
Our life could be ‘oh, so good’,
if you had only understood
Two minds speak better than one
On equal terms would be much more fun
But close to home, it’s always the same
My steps slow down when I think of you

The way you speak, what you demand
it makes me shut my system down
You patronise, you drag me around
it makes me shut my system down

You put me in robot mode

You give me the solution,
when I do not have a problem
You say you have the answer,
when noone asked a question
You tell me to move faster,
when the ride is all that matters
You say you trust me,
as long as I read your mind

 

THAT’S WHY I LOVE WEEKENDS
I freakin’ hate it here, ‘cause I don’t fit in
This place is killing me, making me feel ill
I am sitting here, hands drop to the floor
Time is eating me and my eyes are sore
My brain is dissolving, from no-brainer tasks
I wait for something
This is not for me

Feelings of frustration
My head is hanging down
Knots in my stomach
Just killing time

That’s why I love weekends
Let them last forever
That’s why I love weekends
I’m made for something better
That’s why I love weekends
Let them last forever

I want to feel the blood, pumping through my veins
I cannot live a lie, I am not that dumb
I feel the time is right, I pack my things and run
There’s nothing more for me, I’m heading for the sun

Off from work, it’s Friday night
Leave it all behind
This is so for me, this is so for me
Weekends are the healer, for my very soul
This is so for me, this is so for me

That’s why I love weekends
Let them last forever
That’s why I love weekends
I’m made for something better
That’s why I love weekends
Let them last forever

 

ON MY OWN
I used to love it when I wandered on,
all alone, in city crowds
It used to make me feel I’m on my own,
against the world, superior
But that was then and how my mind has changed
I miss my town, my family

From town to town I travel on and on,
away from home, all alone
The joy I felt when I was on my own,
in city lights, exploring nights
Has disappeared and all I want for now,
to have you here, my dearest ones

I’ve been around a while
I’ve seen those strangers smile
Discuss the weather and well known facts
I predict how they act
Seen it too many times before
It’s not for me anymore

I’m off to work, I’m a professional,
greeting people, with a subtle smile
I laugh restrained, and give them compliments,
I call them ‘friend’, and let their egos grow
It’s not that I am being cynical, I like them too,
but not for real

I used to love it; centre of a crowd,
a special one, a distant man
But I have started to wander off,
away from this, in my mind
I’d rather be among my family,
for whom I care, who gives me joy

I’ve been around a while
I’ve seen those strangers smile
Discuss the weather and well known facts
I predict how they act
Seen it too many times before
It’s not for me anymore

I’m all alone, in this crowd
I’m all alone, where silence is not allowed
I’m all alone
And even though they are kind
Grows a boredom within, that infects my mind

 

ABOUT US
What happens when love fades away,
when there’s nothing left to say?
What happens when all feelings are gone?
Just logical reasons to go on
What happens when the fun has gone astray?
It packed its things and went away

It seems we both care about us

What happens when nothing is alright,
love seems to vanish out of sight?
We need to lay our bloody hatches down,
I don’t know how, but it’s got to be done,
It’s got to be done

It seems we both care about us

Who will be the one to confess;
I’m to blame as well for this mess?
Who will become overwhelmed by ‘we’?
Say we have to fight and never flee
Who will be the one to say I love you,
and start a trip to take us through?

Who will be the one of us to dare,
take the road of no repair?

It seems we both care about us

You care for yourself
I care for myself
Does that really mean we care about us?

 

HOMESICK
It is time for me to go, I am done
I will leave this place, I finally decided
We have to say our last goodbye
Take your time, say what you have to say
Now is our final day, I will stay with you anyway
I will stay with you anyway, but I am homesick

I’m not going fast, but this is what I’m used to
On small and gritty roads, to the comfort of my past
I have travelled far, still I’m close to home
It’s time to keep good memories,
and to pass them on
I am homesick

The soil is moist from sweat, a day in June
My skin is dark from dust, my mind is light from work
I woke up and I will pass away,
under this clear blue sky, I am stuck in the past
I am stuck in a good way, I am stuck in a good way
I am homesick

My beloved ones, you’ll be waiting there for me
Guiding me home , take me by the hand
A lifetime is defined, still life goes on
Like ripples on the water, like echoes from the sky
I am homesick

I am done


A lifetime is defined, still life goes on
