Eyes You wake up insane You wake up in pain You’ve seen the last moments of a silent dream And you’ll soon be reopened to a nightmare Loud and clear That the love you’ve once had The passion that you used to share For ever gone It’s not really there So hold and behold It’s the same garden The same sycamore that used to hold us in its shade Behold the phantom of the birds That used to fill the place with their songs Behold the pavements that used to blossom and cheer Behold the branches covered in ice The dead leaves and cold wind plays them Behold the scared bleeding heart Cold like the days of September Behold my eyes you can’t cry My soul went ice dry And nothing can move it again You wake up in pain covered with newspaper Like any beggar Only you beg for her back For the sun on your face For the lake to be alive again For the love that you once had You breathe but you don’t seem to be alive Inhaling sadness Exhaling regrets and the stinks of your stupid mistakes And as the spring arrives You won’t feel any warmth To your heart you can’t feel her close The sun seems pale on the gloomy sunrise You once called her my life And when she left you felts that everything inside you dies Now that she’s for ever gone Behold the last few moments of your silent dream As loud as cruel You will never feel her in your arms again
We’ve entered a foggy time Where only the insane are truly free Politicians thrive With agendas where their brains should be. Where “dialogue” is shouted curses Wielded like dull-edged swords And our defense against this loud banality Our faces sunken into phones, terminally bored. We no longer slouch towards Bethlehem But think its existence is just fake news. The truth is no longer a solid thing But a clay molded with our views. I’ll not try to do what Didion did, I’ve neither the competence nor the need To walk around in different shoes In glasses smoked with weed. I’ll just erode in peace here dark While the world in every direction implodes to dust. The red of it not iron-based – Eternal quiet the only end to our distrust.
