Bittersweet

My life is mostly bittersweet

It comes and goes with every deed

Are we to blame

Or just in need

When the last is gone

We plant our seed

One Planet

Are we going to hell
Are we going to heaven
We have a blast
And count to seven
This is our life
This is salvation
We are one planet
But out of frustration
We nearly extinct
We risk it all
Is the pleasure
Worth the fall
Are we going to hell
Are we going to heaven
We have to be sane
And count to seven

Troubled days

Healing rain

We stand in line not to go insane

As the corridors open

Windows are broken

And now who’s to blame

 

I had a friend

He was gone when the first bombs fell

Are we going to hell

It‘s all the same

 

We’re here alone

No light shines through the windows

I call it redemption

But out of temptation

I try to restrain

 

There is a new morning

I hear some talking

Shots in the distance

Our last resistance

It’s all the same

Freedom within

Freedom within
Freedom without
Mutual sin
Can we live with the doubt
A morning of blessings
Some old rotting trees
We could have been wiser
We seem still so blind
A morning of blessings
We need to be kind

Freedom within
Freedom without
We need to reflect
And not live with the doubt

So many chances

 My whole dreams are just a mile away

And I know patience is my way to joy

I could stay and wait

Forever and ever more

Or just stand for what

I love the most

I could dream a million dreams

I could wake and sing or so it seems

 

My life was made of so many chances

So many chances

My self defense is

My self defenses

They hold me

From suceeding

 

I can break these walls

That hold me down

That hold my crown

 

My life was made of so many chances

So many chances

My self defense is

My self defenses

They hold me

From suceeding

 

 

Does anybody know why life is that cruel

Is there any rule

 

I will suceed

I make my way

All my stupid thoughts

Have gone astray

 

My life was made of so many chances

So many chances

My self defense is

My self defenses

They don’t hold me

From suceeding

 

I will make it

I will make it

My life was built of

So many chances

My self defenses

They protect me

Grace

Who has got the answer
To an unspoken word
Who can heal cancer
Without that much hurt

Who knows all the reasons
Of mortality
Who can stand your treasons
They are not for free

Who will fall apart
Who will break your heart

If I could just beg your pardon
There are some things we can't face
Oh and get this thing starting
You still have your grace

Who has got the courage
To fight a battle lost
I need your reinsurance
Who will pay the cost

Who has got the answer
To an unspoken word
Who can heal cancer
Without that much hurt

Tree of life


I woke up early in the morning
Like so often in these days
I thought it was a dream
That kept my mind at peace
But I am here at home
And everything’s alright
You are at my side

I never stopped believing
I’m so grateful in these days
Have we been not in Bearland
I would hide from your face
I would run and never tire
Cause there is too much at stake
Will you be my dear companion
I can see the answer in your eyes
I stay with you, I pay the price
Though I am glad to pay it everyday 
And again a million times
I do not tire looking at your face
I do not tire giving all of me for you
Until there is nothing left 
But the love we share
Because you make me feel home
Because you are my home
The best of me
The tree of life
Where I arrive

Here with me

There are so many oceans
So many seas
So much at stake
Here and there a lake
Now and there a break
What matters is 
You’re here with me

I don’t remember
Nor am I a fool
If I loved you tender
Should we go back to school
Is there any rule

There is no surrender
No hypocrisy
I love you tender
And you’re here with me

At the gate

Fiery nights
Along the bay
Something strange
And out of sight
Give me your time
One golden coin
I gladly would
Another side

Beauty within
So bitter cold
I hear no sound
Miles away

The dust settles
A lonely swan
Brick by brick
A miracle
Of all the rivers
Only one can tell

Too much noise
Can break the silence
Can end in violence
Stumble forward in hesitation
Be much more than inspiration
Echoes never heard
That make walls tremble
If only

The fires burning
Flames hiding
The smoke ascends
Up to where the light is
A puzzle of so many pieces
Where belief is

War

I'm cab driver since half a year. The stories you hear they change you and your worldview piece by piece. It's not about what you hear on the news but what you hear from people who have been at places for real and their simple part of a certain story. Usually you hear this story only for some minutes without any proof if it's wrong or right and who else was involved and what's their part of it. There's one story that came to my mind first when I started to write.

The guy I drove wanted to go to a bar. At one point he told me that he had been a soldier in the Afghan War back when the Soviets occupied the country and in some other warfare zones. He told me he saw cruelty people do to each other that's hard to imagine when you don't witness yourself. He told about children and women being slaughtered without any mercy and the helplessness faced with demons that won't make you any different from this. He was left with posttraumatic stress disorder - how we like to call it - or simply the fact that all these horrible pictures still wander around in his mind and torture him. I don't know if he had to kill people too or just witnessed other people being killed. And I honestly don't know if it's worse to kill somebody who would else kill others and be left on the same level or to see it happening wishing to intervene.

In the end people are sometimes left with choices where all options are terrible to take and put damage to others and oneself. And what's left is trying to live with it.

Same planet

You're from the same planet
The planet I left long ago
Where words aren't needed
Where we just sense the beauty of the world
And all l need l can see reflecting in your eyes
And your words guide me through this forlorn world
I don't regret and l focus on the horizon
Where you are - somewhere in different lands
The spark that enlightens me
The wisdom and direction I need
I know I've found what l was searching for
And in your arms l feel finally free

On my own


 I never felt so lost

It just comes at too high a cost

Faced my demons once again

I do see them linger somewhere

Too afraid to reappear

Did you hear?



There’s a storm I can’t escape

Else I would be lost forever

You once told me that I’d made it

And I know that this is true

What about you?



Have you lost your sense of humor?

Is this really what you want?

There’s a chance you might be trapped

In the wheels of your own belief



There’s nothing I’d be without you

There was nothing we could do

Sometimes life leaves you no choice

But to do what you have to do



Guess I found my way somehow

This time I need to make it work

Need to leave the shadows

That still tell me that I won’t

I thought I never dared

To walk this road just on my own



There are thousand kingdoms waiting

And they seem to make me blind

There’s a chance I might be losing

All I ever thought was kind

There’s a chance that I won’t stand it

There’s a chance I’d become a stranger to myself

Though there’s a chance I’d escape this prison

That makes me numb and desperate

And that’s the reason why I try



Guess I found my way somehow

This time I need to make it work

Need to leave the shadows

That still tell me that I won’t

I thought I never dared

To walk this road just on my own

Another shade of blue

Distance can be scary
Losing means pain
Some have lost the balance
Some have gone insane

In the light of every secret
There's a mourning breaking through
The truth can be quite heavy
Another shade of blue

Most sincere sensation

There's not an answer but many questions
Some mysteries hidden in distant fractions
Some simple sound, some empty laughter
The moon might tell what we are after
Our strangest fears, our brightest failures
In time everything might betray us
But though there's light in darkest alleys
If we dare to rise above
If we dare to simply love
Without any obligation
Just our most sincere sensation
