A song with very metaphorical flow-of-consciousness lyrics. And it’s special as it has two parts with two different themes.


in the sitting room, watching the steam
counting the seconds until they fade away
your kindness, my darkness, from norfolk into the world

endless laughter from your mouth
one decade later coming back
just like Crusoe, no traces left

somewhere in the garden hopeless cases lie
murmurs from behind, notes are taken
the noise from above, like distant thunder

what could you say when no one listens
what could you show when no one looks
it seldom matters, the parade went by
but the knight turns round, maybe bleeding

but I know it’s not real, but I know it’s all show
but I know that I’m not sure, but I know...

don’t shoot the sky where the clouds are born
don’t aim at the heavens where the angels may roam
don’t make me cry, don’t you talk about love while looking like this


from Wisdom & Failure, released April 29, 2014
