Are You here?

A new morning begins
With a kiss on my cheek
The tears I’ve packed into tins
Carry them into the cellar
And I will never bleed again
I will never feed this love
With a head full of hope
That’s an easy dope

Afraid of summer rain
Don’t fear the pain
Bleach all written books
And it looks like something new

The clock counts the seconds
I count the time to forget
It’s a look on the other side
I feel right and I go that way
Yesterday I think “Stay!”
Today I feel the tide

Afraid of summer rain
Don’t fear the pain
Bleach all written books
And it looks like something new

Are you here?
No, I need myself in an open shell

Cowboy

Riding a horse out of town
I wear a crown
And the sun must drown
I’m here on my own
Thrown into life
Only a sea to dive

Deep deep down
Underwater with a lung full of air
Deep deep down
And no fear is here to bear

Back out of the water
I’m someones daughter
And the sun comes up
I’m born in this club
Please stand up
And come with me

Deep deep down
Underwater with a lung full of air
Deep deep down
And no fear is here to bear

Crawl To The Heart

There lies a corpse - Completely naked
An open hand - A hole in the midst of the palm

Someone arrives at this scene
He looks at the palm
Bows down - Whispering voices in his back
His nose touches the very tense skin
He stands up and walks away

Two persons crawl into a hole
Touch the heart
And something is cleared

Somebody comes to the corpse
A second one - A woman with black eyes
Bows down - Her back laughs wild
Her nose touches the very tense skin
She stands up and walks away

Two persons crawl into a hole
Touch the heart
And something is cleared

Someone and somebody meet at a clearing
One hand in the other
They think a second - And know

Two persons crawl into a hole
Touch the heart
And something is cleared

Door

A midsummer night
Rain on my forehead
I feel a beautiful heaviness
And it smells like a memory of my youth

The first love
A kiss and goodbye
Like it was yesterday
And today’s love is a sum of everything before

I need a door
Where I can pass the past
To get a clear memory
Without this delusion

Now I sit here
Think of her and my love
This is so deeply rooted
I don’t know how to get rid of it

I need a door
Where I can pass the past
To get a clear memory
Without this delusion

He told me
With the first pain of love
With a sense of fate and humour
“Every separation will be a bigger pain!”

Fate

Let’s talk about this deepest need
Our fate is an endless search
Looking for someone
But it’s only biological compulsion

Oh, please don’t cry
This is chemical fear
We are here for a moment
To live, breathe and die

Don’t deny this fate
It’s too late
Lay back, be honest an make things better

This isn’t a sinister illusion
Or something to deny god
It’s the simple truth
We only do the evolution

Don’t deny this fate
It’s too late
Lay back, be honest an make things better

Golden House

He builds tunnels
Every day he digs deeper
21 years - feels like he's digging into a body
He's the stranger - but the laugh is on his side
He's the danger - but dignity is his right

Hey come on, take this money while he's in prison
… This is your Garden Of Eden

The heat on his face
This face turns to deep red
21 years - looks like he's a flame that burns
He's the stranger - but the laugh is on his side
He's the danger - but dignity is his right

Hey come on, take this money while he's in prison
… This is your Garden Of Eden

Then he leaves
A good way - money for pain
21 years - in a cocoon, but he has still no heart
He's the stranger - but the laugh is on his side
He's the danger - but dignity is his right

Hey come on, take this money while he's in prison
… This is your Garden Of Eden

Heat

Now, again in the desert
I sit there naked, the pearls crawl down my skin
It's the heat

Bodies with floating water, salt red skin
I breathe out, it's like the spittle of a dragon

Silence in this room
Only the blood boils
It's the heat

In the heart of a stone
Embraced by a river of lava, this is home
It's the heat

The others show their inside, salt red skin
I breathe out, it's like sitting in the fire

Silence in this room
Only the blood boils
It's the heat

Then I beat a hole in the ice and
jump into the cold water
The melted stone, me, goes numb
But in the heart of the stone
The blood fills every niche
It's the heat

How Long ...

We are sitting on a small piece of dry soil
Underneath nothing – only pure air
Two and a half year no rain
Your feet stand on firm ground
And I’m sunken to the hip

How long carries a small piece of dry soil two bodies?

Rest and rest and thinking only the best
The meat tastes good and the laughs are loud
I’m proud to have a wife for life
Even when I can’t kiss her lips
Or dance like the other hips

How long carries a small piece of dry soil two bodies?

But the new time comes
Like the new world for the blind singing angel
Our bodies glitter white and on the faces a red smile
Then comes the water
Raindrops as big as crocodile tears
Wash out our grown-in bodies

Implosion

My heart is a bomb
The breast tied up with history
And a heavy belt

Give space – I need
And there will be something different
Your love is killing me

Lets bomb the world today
I feel this is the moment

There’s an implosion
Two in one is too much for one
It’s dust in the hands of the other

Lets bomb the world today
I feel this is the moment

K: Sea Change

Tuesday is here again
What do you think?
Life isn’t a dance hall
Yes, not in the past
Tonight life is a dance on a rope
We are blind but can’t fall

I hear the Sea Change
It’s a pulse in the ear
I feel the sweet embrace
It’s a flood in the desert

Your eyes are full of ice
An open source to fall
I see my wish
Do you feel the same?
Tonight life is a dance on a rope
We are blind but can’t fall

I hear the Sea Change
It’s a pulse in the ear
I feel the sweet embrace
It’s a flood in the desert

One day later
We float through the night
And this kiss
Two days later
We meet at the station
And start the journey
Three days later
I wait
And wait
Four days later
I sleep in your arms
And silence is our language

Last Hand

The smell of you in my bed
Outside/inside stormy weather
The rain can’t wash it clean
It’s like a jacket of neopren

There’s a heap of dust in my head
And a hard breeze of stormy weather
Someone breathes out
And I cry out loud

Your hand is near
So is my fear
You are not here
The burden I have to bear

But every end is a beginning
There’s a sun behind the stormy weather
The rain can’t wash all clean
But, do you know what life means?

Your hand is near
So is my fear
You are not here
The burden I have to bear

Mouth

Face to face
Tongueless mouth
Sewed up lips
A shelter from the shame
We stand on different sides
Of the thin red line

Give me your hand
Over the hills
Valleys
But we are upright

We give birth
And smile
The dry lips burst
And we smile
The threads fall down
And we smile

You have the memory
You two
The silence
And me

We give birth
And smile
The dry lips burst
And we smile
The threads fall down
And we smile

We meet on the thin red line
Dancing
We look into the ravines
Waiting

My House

Come into my house
You warm up in front of the fire
And a fire burns in me

Your hands are so soft
They save you, you can free my hate
If you caress my cheeks

This is a place of hope
The fire sparkles in our heads
The heat cleans all things

If it isn’t love, it’s gonna be a bomb

Rainy Night Sky

Does it rain in your town?
Here are darkness and lightnings
And in this light
I see your laughing face

Do you hear the thunder?
This is my rhythm
Scream while the thunder rolls
And I will hear it

I would like to embrace you
Under a rainy night sky
I would smell your oil
Touch you
And we wouldn't be shy

Is your skin already wet?
I count the drops at the window
A million knocks
To tell me a secret

I would like to embrace you
Under a rainy night sky
I would smell your oil
Touch you
And we wouldn't be shy

What are you thinking?
Love and laughs for two?
My fear still exist
But I try to open the heart

Shade Of A Shadow

Love another shadow
Day and night
This shade, my own self
Is my fight
Tight is the rope
Fantasy is my dope
And every sin in my head
Reminds me of this cold cold bed

Out of this bed
The morning knocks
What day is it?
I’ve stopped all clocks
I put on the old socks
So everyone mocks
And every face I see
Reminds me of what I want to be

She’s a shade of a shadow

She’s a shade of a shadow
I bend down and touch the dust
I feel every small grain in my empty hands
That’s the only thing I trust

She’s a shade of a shadow

Strange Things

I wake up with tears in my eyes
A minute and I feel the water around me
Swimming in my bed
But I’m very happy and dive into the depth

At the bottom I meet someone
A girl with eyes like a tiger
I try to speak
But here, under water, every noise is silence

Strange things
Like a storm in a teacup
Strange things
Throw me up

Back in bed, it’s small
I can’t sleep when you think of me
And you think of me every minute
But here, in bed, every noise is increased

Strange things
Like a storm in a teacup
Strange things
Throw me up

Sweetest Drunk

This is home
On my lips I taste this bitter sweet fruit
This is home
My tongue is numb and the eyes are small

Come feel it – It’s the sweetest drunk

I try to speak
But my tongue fills the whole mouth
I try to breathe
But your heat burns down the room


Come feel it – It’s the sweetest drunk

I clean the room with water
The dirt of many years
With my hands I touch your cheecks
And know: tomorrow will be the same

Come feel it – It’s the sweetest drunk

The Darkest Hour

A night - the darkest hour
But the heart is full of light
Tonight the moon loves the sun
On the run down to the earth
Gives birth - a shadow grows
And in the dark - it's me

But the dark is full of light
It glows in me
Through me
A birth

The Mapper

I'm a mapper
I survey the land
My point of view
Is from the highest mountain

And if this mountain
Isn't high enough
I climb up the sky
I wait till I die

Look at this paper
This is my world
A map
If there's a mountain you can't see real
Build a mountain that you can feel

I have a friend
His sextant is broken
I look over the ocean
And make him a map

And if this mountain
Isn't high enough
I climb up the sky
I wait till I die

Look at this paper
This is my world
A map
If there's a mountain you can't see real
Build a mountain that you can feel

Unspoken And Tired

We are so old
Life is behind us
The smile is a cramp
And the hands are cold

When you open your mouth
I see a pack of words
Unspoken and tired
Trapped in a snowed up house

Your hand catches the wind
Put it in a bottle
And drink it

You think of your beauty
Hidden as a memory
Today’s reality
Is a needle in a back – is a need

Your hand catches the wind
Put it in a bottle
And drink it

Water Dry Desert

You left my room - the water whispers
Hold the bottle - drink a piece of you
You are the light - you are the clouds over Iceland
You as clouds in front of you as light
I stretch my hands in this height
Searching for the feather
I could fly with you on my back
This lightness

You left the room - a water dry desert
My feet in the sand - and I gasp

Here - I think, it's heaven - the thin air
Breathing blue - you pull at my tongue
Crawl in my nose - dance on my cornea
Whisper in my ear
But I fall - the ants carry me away

You left the room - a water dry desert
My feet in the sand - and I gasp

Your hand in my neck
You jump in the blue
Like a wide open mouth
With my lips I approach
To drink you

You left the room - a water dry desert
My feet in the sand - and I gasp

Without Charms

Too many ways
Too many days
To hold this hand over my head
To sleep deep in my bed
Let this place be the place to rest
And don't tell me: "It's a test!"
My feet are tired - Can't make a step
But this island is hired - Slowly sinking

Come on - Open your arms
Swim - Without any charms
