/dʒəˈruːsələm/

Ohh…
Ahh…

 

You will love again

Your voice is getting soft
The music turning low
The day is fading out
The hour getting slow

It’s just a silly phase    It won’t last long
you just work it through    You’ll come out pretty strong
life will find it’s ways    The power in a pause
You’ve learned a thing or two    The sotto voce force

It’s the kind of sadness that falls off when you move on

Sometimes you hurt a leg
Sometimes you hurt an arm
Sometimes you hurt your Self
Sometimes you hurt your heart

Sometimes you hurt a leg    It needs a rest
Sometimes you hurt an arm    It needs a rest
Sometimes you hurt your Self    It needs a rest
Sometimes you hurt your heart    It needs a rest

It’s the kind of sadness that falls off when you move on

Candles fading out
I still sense a light
Nocturnal fireflies
It’s a sparkle in your eyes

I wonder if it’s you    or just that face
The one your mother wore    when we were kids
That you tried to ignore    that happy face
I finally conclude    it’s really you

You will be ok – I swear that
You will be ok – I swear that
You will love again
You will love again
Love thy neighbor, and he might love you more

 

Crawler

Because I was young and insecure
Enlisted there by force
Drafted to someone else’s war
Not a clue what life had in store

Because someone’s creeping here, crawling at my floor
Someone bigger and greater than your
Megalomania, you the irreplaceable
Well I don’t need you anymore

It’s an open wound, still sore
That’s finally cared for
Fleeing those pantomime whores
A galley slave, aiming for
The other shore

Because someone’s creeping here, crawling at my floor
Someone bigger and greater than your
Megalomania, you the irreplaceable
Well I don’t need you anymore

Perfecter

I’m perfect
You’ll never get a second shot at me

But I must admit, that I acted a bit, when I smiled at my aunt, and her tedious spouse, (but it’s a very big house)
And I know I’m wrong, when I’m passing along, the blame to the one, who’s absent and gone. I mean stop to pretend, that I’m innocent, and start act like a gent.

Period and end.

Otherwise I’m perfect
Curious and modest
Whimsical and focused
Logical and balanced
I’ll never judge a driver by the car

And maybe once in a while, I happened to lie, about ideas and kind, that I merchandise, implying they’re mine.

And it might just look nice, to peel of a vice, like borrowing other men’s wives.
But just give me a drink, a smile and a wink, I’ll be yours in a blink. Just stop playing with hearts, it would do for a start.

Otherwise I’m perfect
Generous to strangers
Responsible and playful
Solution oriented,
I’ll never be entangled in the past

And I should realize, that indifference like, closing my eyes, at uncomfortable sights, at the news every night, mean it all carries on, and somebody dies, the following night.

And why is it so hard, to pick up the phone, give my mother a call, my father a call, tell them how much I care, while they are still here

Otherwise I’m perfect
Confident but humble
Funny but not shallow
Always moving forward
You’ll never get a second shot at me

I should learn to cool down, don’t run all the time, find out how to find, some peace of mind, and not to be scared, by a moment to spare.

And verbally too, I need to stay cool, I need to restrain, my language and aim, to connect to the brain, before I start maim.

And stop believing that I’m…

Why is it so hard to live like a saint
Why is it so dark in this womb to tomb maze
And a pile-up in front of that narrow gate
Why oh why… God I can’t follow the rules

Limo

Outside there’s a limo waiting
Outside there’s a limo waiting
Throw your scrap heap on the scrap heap
Cause right outside there’s a limo waiting

So go pack all you Monday mornings
Call in sick and tell some story
Tell them that you’ve been abducted
By a passing marsian tourist

Outside there’s a limo waiting
Outside there’s a limo waiting
Tell your friend you’ve found a new one
Cause right outside there’s a limo waiting

Forget about those lo-fi boyfriends
Lonely evenings and cancelled weddings
Wipe out all those haunting memories
Forget all those Bergman endings

Tell your landlord she’s an a-hole
And the pacemaker to beat faster
Wrap up all your day care sorrows
Wrap them up in armored plaster

Outside there’s a limo waiting
Outside there’s a limo waiting
Throw your crap life on the scrap heap
Cause right outside there’s a limo waiting

 

Please Bear With Us

Oh god, oh god
Please bear with us
Cause we’re only humans

Cause we’re only trying, to live our lives (1 takt)
In peace with our neighbor, and in rhyme
With our time

Oh god…

Constantly tending, the machinery (1)
To make it run smoothly, and then pass
The key

Oh god…

To make our views better, we’re climbing our ladders, to next rung (2)
And if we happen to, step on a brother or others, well then
That’s bad luck

Oh god…

We fight to protect, what we hoard or collect, steal or hunt (2)
And after our needs are fulfilled, that’s when we start to kill
Just for fun

Oh god…

Biological climbers
Evolutional upstarts
Nouveau riche wannabe slouches

Oh god…

We sit in our talkshows debating to show us so avant-garde (2)
Spending our days, studying social behaving, of(among) apes and the late dinosaur (3) And back home from office, we unscrew a bottle, and start banging each other (3)
Like the mammals we are

God, oh god please bear with us
Cause soon we will be leaving

First we just, must scorch the earth, to make sure that it’s worthless to all
Coming here, after us, then we’re gone

 

Beautiful World

This is a marvelously beautiful world
Once in a lifetime world
A make-believe world
And I leave it all to you

The roaring of thunder
Rain on your skin
Your name in her slumber
With a sigh from deep within
The weight of a lover
Her head on your arm
The dawning of summer
The touch of a heart

This is a marvelously beautiful world
Once in a lifetime world
A make-believe world
And I’ll leave it all to you

The hug before travelling
The return of a smile
Young children playing
Like butterflies
Your best friend’s wedding
The birth of a child
A glimpse of a higher cause
Of something divine

Making love
Making love
Making love to your dear one in the night
Making love to your dear one in the night

This is a marvelously beautiful world
Once in a lifetime world
A make-believe world
And I’ll leave it all to you

Let My People Go

Let my people go
Let my people find the land of milk and honey
Let my people push the people there away
Let my people kill and enslave them

34 Corrections

Gulliver’s Travels, ain’t written for kids
I’d say most grown-ups are too young to read it

The Oscar for best pic, should be renamed
To Best budget, simply best budget

Anything can be a piece of art
But things with a purpose, won’t bear that name

The eighties’ rock music was nobody’s fault
It was the drum plague, that deadly disease

If you want a scapegoat, it should be MTV
And the shift from sound to vision

Money should be sold at half price
Armies should always fight together, on the same side

Dictators fall like trees
Commies like spruce, fascists like pines

In the end they all fall
Spruce rot outwards, pines inwards

The reason for war is, that evolution’s too slow
There’s too many Cro magnon chromosomes still in orbit

Religious conflicts are rarely religious
It’s always possessions, it’s always the land

Religious oppression is rarely religious
It’s usually cultural, local and cultural

Religious people think that they know
People of science, know that they think
And I know I stole that thought

In lack of knowledge, have an opinion
The more experienced, the more uncertain

God Bless The World

So, you got him…
So, you got him…
That’s really great!
But God bless America?
Yes God bless America?
That’s just the kind of talk, that gives us all the feeling you don’t care, the slightest about us over here
The kind of talk that’s seeping through, making people fear you…
and eventually hate you…
What’s wrong with the world?
Yes what’s wrong with the world?
God bless the world
God bless us all
