Thoughts in the shape of words.

Emotional Pain

Nobody is at home
I can’t describe the feeling
You left me all on my own
Now i need some time for healing

Why must you leave without a word
All that I longed for and adored

Will never come true
I don’t know what to do
‘Cause it’s hard breaking the chains
Of Emotional Pain

Everybody tries to say
That time will heal the suffering
They say take it day by day
Find a new song to sing

Now you got to get rid of
What was once a burning love

Will never come true
I don’t know what to do
‘Cause it’s hard breaking the chains
Of Emotional Pain

It’s hard breaking the chains
(Find some spirit)
It’s hard breaking the chains
(Find some hope)
Break the chains
And the strain
Of Your Emotional Pain

Sleepless

Sleepless
Another night struggling for some sleep
Another night of counting sheep
I lay down my weary head to rest
But my mind seems to
Paint pictures at best
And by the sounds inside of my mind
I go to where all beauty is confined
Where memories of the future stay

I’m sleepless
During the
Break of day

Sleepless
Stuck inside the memories of old
Stuck in the restlessness taking hold
I open up my eyes yet again
Maddened by this curse
Driving me insane
I long for serenity someday
Just finding that place to fade away
But it’s so very out of sight

I’m sleepless
During the
Long dark night

I’m constantly tired
I tell you
My senses are
Too wired up to
Find a simple
Little dream to stay
In my uneasy head
Every day
I don’t know if
I can recover
Perhaps the
Soft touch of a lover
Or a little help
From the doctor
Can get what’s lost
To reappear

Sleepless
Time to rise up and face the new day
Time to get up in some kind of way
For nothing more than a lousy dime
That won’t buy my need
If you can’t sell time
There is nothing left to do but pray
Lost and confused on this long way
Trying to cope with this in vain

I’m sleepless
I need to
Dream again

Mountain Of Hope

No sun is shining
No love is found
Only teardrops on my cheek
And I’m on a losing streak

For quite a while now
For a long long time
Anger and despair haunt me
And I need too be set free

Free from the lies
Free from deceit
I want to feel my heart beat

I’m climbing the mountain of hope
Through these hard times I’ve got to cope
I’m climbing the mountain of hope
Searching for you
To make my dreams come true

I’ve taken some punches
I’ve been on the ground
Wasting love in the wrong places
Only finding hopeless cases

Is it really that hard
Is the well so deep
If it’s not you it’s me
And I need to be set free

Free from the lies
Free from deceit
I want to feel my heart beat

I’m climbing the mountain of hope
Through these hard times I’ve got to cope
I’m climbing the mountain of hope
Searching for you
To make my dreams come true

I’m climbing
(Don’t lose hope)
I’m climbing
(I hope I can cope)

Keep on climbing
You got to keep climbing
Ain’t no use crying
No use hiding
Just keep on climbing

I’m climbing the mountain of hope
Through these hard times I’ve got to cope
I’m climbing the mountain of hope
Searching for you
To make my dreams come true

I Wanna’ Be In Your Arms

I just want to be in your company
You’ve got a way of giving me serenity
When we’re together
I feel so much better

Well I still remember that first night
A chaotic stroll with delight
Since then I always knew
I’d be a fool for you through and through

I wanna’ be in your arms
Keep you close at all times
And never treat you wrong
You’re so calm and your heart is so warm
I wanna’ be in your arms
My heart it yearns
I wanna’ be in your arms

I can remember our each and every time
In good times ‘n’ bad you give me peace of mind
I never want to leave your side
And I’ve got nothing to hide

When I’m on the road again
So far away from you my friend
I can’t get you off of my mind
And I can’t feel fine
Until I return
Back in your arms

I hope the day never comes dear
The day when you may disappear
But I guess you never know
I hate the thought of having to let you go

I wanna’ be in your arms
Keep you close at all times
And never treat you wrong
You’re so calm and your heart is so warm
I wanna’ be in your arms
My heart it yearns
I wanna’ be in your arms

When I’m on the road again
So far away from you my friend
I can’t get you off of my mind
And I can’t feel fine
Until I return
Back in your arms


I wanna’ be in your arms
Keep you close at all times
And never treat you wrong
You’re so calm and your heart is so warm
I wanna’ be in your arms
My heart it yearns
I wanna’ be in your arms

Watching The Blue, Blue Sky

The days keep on a-flying by
Happens so easily when you’re high
If I were a professor, I’d teach
And if I were a reverend, I’d preach
But I’m nothing but a simple guy
I like to sit by the river and watch the blue, blue sky

Time moves on like a rocket ship
It’s never slow, always so very quick
If I were a doctor, I’d heal the sick
Or a construction worker, I’d lay down those bricks
I’m just hoping for something good to pass by
For now I just sit by the river and keep watching the blue, blue sky

I’ve got my beliefs just like everybody I guess
I’m like you and you’re like me, more or less
Good times, bad times they come visit us all
How do you live with joy when it’s so easy to fall
Don’t ask me, I don’t know much about it
I find it so hard to commit, admit and submit
To the confined limits of reality
The breeding ground of insanity

There’s so much space here to be filled
Many have fought over it, a lot have been killed
If I were a soldier, I’d fight for peace
Were I an adventurer, I’d search for the golden fleece
Still I’m just this unsound, broke down tall guy
And I just sit by the river and keep watching the blue, blue sky

This land that’s supposed to be yours and mine
Is ravaged by those who only help their own kind
If I were a sculptor, I’d carve these words in stone
Were I a rebel, I’d make the oppressors get off their thrones
What is there to do when no one hears your cry
I just sit by the river and keep watching the blue, blue sky

You may feel all right with your houses and cars
Sometimes I wonder if I can feel something at all
Serenity is what I’ve been looking for all my life
Not easy when you’re troubled with other folks strife
Those who may never cut the rope that binds them down
That’s why I walk around with a frown in this town
On the verge of going delirious
With my lingering weariness

Off I go walking down the same old road
Keepin’ on carrying my heavy inner load
If I was an explorer, I’d travel to the milky way’s stars
A human in search of the far away beautiful worlds
But I’m stuck on this rock and thereby
I sit by the river and keep watching the blue, blue sky
Perhaps someday I’ll defy it all and let fly my weary sigh
‘Til then I sit by the river and keep watching the blue, blue sky

That’s How It Is

In this world no one can really be free
There’s gonna be a change you see
Someday we the people shall tell
Our mighty kings to go to hell
But when your brought down hard
By the shackles of oppression scarred
You’re stuck inside a planetary prison cell
Where no visionaries receive a place to dwell
What is there left here now to live for
When everyone keeps showing you the door

Just keep your head up
If you don’t wanna’ get snubbed
‘Cause they’ll never understand
Unless you’re a white man
Then come join the feast
Of bankrupting those with the least
That’s how it goes after centuries
Of keeping the bankers’ interests
Some folks turn to the bottle
Some take their lives at full throttle

And that’s how it is
It’s always been this way
That’s how it is
The wealthy never pay
And they surely don’t share
Or worry about their secret affairs
But we’re stuck in confinement
Can’t do nothing ’bout this
That’s how it is

Here come the good ol’ police
Searching for the junkies and druggies
Throw them straight into a cell
That’s how you make them get well
And don’t forget those beggars there
Wipe the streets so we won’t see the despair
Everybody’s going crazy right here
Acting like bourgeois musketeers
Grabbing swords and grabbing shields
To keep their dirty secrets concealed

But keep your head up
For what will now develop
Look out for the fear mongers
Shouting from your TV-monitors
Telling you the distorted facts
That they’ve pulled out of a wizards hat
Trust none of what you can see dear
Trust even less of what you hear
The truth can be twisted and forged
Even the robber barons never get charged

And that’s how it is
It’s always been this way
That’s how it is
The wealthy never pay
And they surely don’t share
Or worry about their secret affairs
But we’re stuck in confinement
Can’t do nothing ’bout this
That’s how it is

A long time ago I heard a guitar strum
Someone said to me a change is gonna come
But the times never really change
We need some time to rearrange
And get rid of the tyrants that sell out
Our common land without a doubt
These noblemen only want more sweet candy
And everyone just think things are going dandy

The men are holding on to the power
Money is their tool but never the answer
They hang on to their birthrights
Don’t care none ’bout women rights
Or those slaving away in the factories
The poor who gets beaten down by authority
Maybe someday we’ll learn how to love each other
Despite ethnicity, sex or class the earth is everyone’s mother

And that’s how it is
It’s always been this way
That’s how it is
The wealthy never pay
And they surely don’t share
Or worry about their secret affairs
But we’re stuck in confinement
Climbing from the abyss
That’s how it is

Lost Soul

There’s a dying voice within me
Slowly fading away
I once had so many dreams
But now this world seems gray

I don’t know if to cry
To this dull little world of mine
It once began to come alive
Now I’m just wasting my time

I’m a lost soul
Stuck in this forsaken dust bowl
Tired of playing this role
Tired of being alone
I’m just a lost soul

Everyday I wake up
Walk outside, try to find my role
I stare down this empty cup
This treacherous black hole

I’m constantly falling
Out of touch with reality
And everybody’s talking
Just ruins my sanity

I’m a lost soul
Stuck in this forsaken dust bowl
Tired of playing this role
Tired of being alone
I’m just a lost soul

I’m just trying to feel
Anything except for this pain
Anything but incomplete
Trying to smile again

Well I never did know
This state of mind would exist here
It’s so hard to let go of
Both your dreams and your fears

I’m a lost soul
Stuck in this forsaken dust bowl
Tired of playing this role
Tired of being alone
I’m just a lost soul

You Got To Move Those Feet Around

I’m on a quest, walking this thin line
I can’t rest until I’ve found where love is kind
I hear no one calling
Things happen to me without a warning
If you’re down and out
Out of luck
Starting to drown
You Got To Move Those Feet Around

I drove in to another dead end street
Took another chance but it wasn’t very sweet
When can this change for me
How could I ever feel complete
Completely bound
Safe and Sound
You Got To Move Those Feet Around

You can always start again but you can’t repeat the past
Time has moved on and it’s never coming back
These feelings in me are driving me to tears
I can’t turn them off cause they’re surrounded by fears
Fears of a world that’s unknown
Tells me I gotta move my feet around

Suddenly you’re on my mind
I can’t get you out if I tried
I’ve urged so long for some contact
Biding my time to get back
Waiting’s fine
‘til you reach the line
When you’re so fuckin’ low
You gotta act
Face yourself and the facts
Put on your shoes
Kick off your blues
Turn everything upside down
You Got To Move Those Feet Around

Hit You From Below

We don’t need your chemical artillery
We don’t need your lies and deceit
If you can’t listen to your own
Then you’ve got to face defeat

The opressed shall find their way
Someday

You’ll never know
What hit you from below
Your ruling will forego
And you’ll never know
What hit you from below

You can kill every man in your prison
Kill all of the ideas that you meet
But there’s always people
Who’ll never accept defeat

The opressed shall find their way
Someday

You’ll never know
What hit you from below
Your ruling will forego
And you’ll never know
What hit you from below

You’re comfortable on your throne
You’ve found your holy grail
But what will happen to you
When the crimes you’ve comitted will unveil

The opressed shall find their way
Someday

You’ll never know
What hit you from below
Your ruling will forego
And you’ll never know
What hit you from below

Yes, your ruling must clearly end
Feelings and empathy
You can’t comprehend
Or how real life works
You only see the perks
And that’s why

The opressed will find their way
Someday

And you’ll never know
What hit you from below
Your ruling will forego
And you’ll never know
What hit you from below

I Should Never Have Treated You So

How can
I try
To answer for
Right now
All of those things I said

Just happened
To be
A little too
Set free
When I came ’round that day

Hear my lone confession
Now that I’m-a feeling blue
Sometimes I think back at those times
When our love were true

When you heard me speak
I was too weak
I’ve got to change you know
From this new kind of low
I should never have treated you so

No, it was not
The time
For speaking my
Mind
With not a nice word to lend

You know
Even though
I never wanted you
To go
Every story must end

In my lone confession
In every single word
There falls a shroud of silence
Where echoes once were heard

When you heard me speak
I was too weak
I hope that you can forgive me
I can’t let it go
I should never have treated you so
