GIVE ME A GLASS

give me a glass
to make the third and fourth eye disappear
give me a glass
to see myself less - and the world more clear

give me a glass
to break the wall and let the people in
I need a light, I take a window
warm up my within

give me a glass
to break the wall and let the people in
I need a light, I take a window
warm up my within

what a world
before my eyes she unfurls
pretty and nice, like she's made just for me
rabbits on ice - skating in rows of three
and as I sink I get nearer to thee
it might not be wise but sure tastes wonderfully


give me a glass 
to make the third and fourth eye disappear
give me a glass
to see myself less – and the world more clear

 


​A MOMENT ALONE

I didn't think that it would be for me
to look at someone without fear
but here in your room
with your face next to mine
I'm coming closer

do you know what I see 
when you're looking at me
my brain stops and I get some rest
here in your room
with your face close to mine
there could be only us

but then black and gray come in
and then jealousy comes in
and the outside world comes in
and your history comes in
and my fears all come back in

across this crowded room I see a face
and I long for a moment alone with him
surrounded by my fears I see a face
and I long for a moment
come on give us a moment

will you all please leave this room 
I see a face
and I long for a moment alone with him
surrounded by my fears I see a face
and I long for a moment
I long for that moment

 

PROBLEMS

I might have problems
she might be one, but when she tells me
I'll just have to take her hand 
and follow her to the dark side
she will show me where the lights are
I'll just have to take her hand and follow
her to the dark side

when it is daytime
I find it hard to see where the lights are
I'll just have to take a hand 
and go to under-lit places
I will easily see illumination
if I take a hand and let it take me
down to the dark side
down to the dark side

tell me how it's gonna be 
when we are all the way down there 
and there's nowhere to return to 

I might have problems
she might be one
but when she tells me
I'll just have to take her hand 
and follow her to the dark side

BE DELICATE

I still need you
to tell me I did well
because I continue refusing
telling myself

I boil my blood
until it's flaming hot
and on that I put a pot
in which I put all my words

delicate, be delicate, be delicate, be delicate
I could be delicate

CABIN

I'm made of wood with a lot of windows
you can watch what's in me - 360 degrees
I'm in a forest, with a lake made for diving
I'm in a forest  - I'm a cabin - I'm filled with light

one day she entered, she came from the lake
she never walked before, only floated in water

I took her in - she broke one of my windows
but I didn't mind 'cause now she was in me

she dried out by morning
the sun made her shrivel
I could've thought of that
but I didn't – nor did she
but I'm alright, I have some of her still in me

don't you forget what you lose
a hole is still a part of you
​​

I FALL ASLEEP SO FAST

I fall asleep so fast
and dream of normal life
and it goes by, and I'm alright
reduce myself inside my skin
think: this is it and that's alright
it's all alright

then a word from the outside gets inside of me
and then I see that I was bigger all along
I let myself fall asleep again

now I'm up and standing
I see so much more 
than when I was laying down there
down there on the floor
I see now what I could be living for

how can I fall asleep this fast
it's almost as if I want to dream of living small
out of fear - or just wanting to be comfortable
comfortable and fall

see it all while laying on the floor
no muscle flexed - the eye closed off 
with nothing to get up for

now I'm up and standing
I am so afraid that I'll doze off again​
with no word to wake me up again

 

STAY

stay, don't walk away so quickly
I would like to show you the path
I was about to walk on
would you like to come

this is where I take the first steps
this is where I go
this is where the hill goes upwards
and this is where I fall


stay, don't walk away so swiftly
I know it is hard
it isn't easy soil to walk on
and we will get stuck
but if you took the time to look up
you would see the sky

that is where I'm going 
it's the longest road I know
returning is the bad part
but I do it for the view

 

 

CUT A HOLE

I'll cut a hole in my head
make you see the sun
through my eyes you'll see the sky
through my skin see the light
no head, no thoughts
it's what I have dreamed of
I am not dreaming anymore
only a window for you to look through

I'm drawn aside, I open up my view
for you

I'm not narrow, but it's easy to
lift me up when you need something to stand under
I wouldn't mind at all
no head no thoughts
it's what I have dreamed of
I am not dreaming anymore
only a window for you to look through

I'm drawn aside, I open up my view
for you

I am not giving in in this hope
there must be better ways to cope
see it all
but only through others 

DECAY

​you see darling
I'd give you the world but since it all isn't mine
I'll give you all that I truly own
I'll give it to you to live in
take it, use it, let it decay
be there, live there, make it your own
boy make me your home
black eyes told me you had left me this time for good
but fear not, you can return

I'm down and you can have it all
all that's left of me
boy have me, I will be yours
take it, use it, let it decay
be there, live there, make it your own
boy make me your home 

 

DEBT OF A LOVER

for the first time
I've not picked a side yet
within one week I've not yet decided
I am still waiting, waiting on blue
couldn't deny
he is taking good care
asking the questions but I won't answer
shouldn't have to diminish
to increase the light

go back into the dark
so I can try
over and over and over
I had learned just to love and not to slice
open oh open oh open
over and over and over
they all speak of another half
I've just started to see that I am one, and
I don't need someone to grow older
go back into the dark
so I can try
over and over and over
I had learned just to love and not to slice
open oh open oh open 
go back into the dark
so I can try
over and over and over
don't just give me your heart, expecting mine
saying it's the debt of a lover
saying it's the debt of a lover


WALLS

I’m building up the wall and breaking down my life
instead of breaking down the wall and building up my life

my brain produces bricks
and will pile them up
until a wall arises
I built it myself 

I’m building up the wall and breaking down my life
instead of breaking down the wall and building up my life

LAY THIS WOMAN

I'll take this woman to bed
I'll take this woman to bed and lay her next to me
I'll put her body to rest
I'll put her body to rest until she's fully grown
and I'll let her take my place ooo
I've had enough of the day
I've had enough of the day
I'm gathering remains
then I'll put my mind to rest
​I will put my mind to rest until it's fully gone
and I’ll let her take my place 


HIS SONG

I give you this song
for I want to forget my memory of you
but I don't want the memory to be forgotten
therefore I'll sing these words
as if they were someone else's

I'll speak of him
instead of you
and pretend the lines of this song
have always been there

bird what do you sing
when the other is gone
for those wings were the ones that you flew with
and to enshroud your words
won't make them disappear
every word will be his from now on

I've been waiting for a long time here
it's been so cold without him near
I've been waiting for a long time to see him here
it's been so cold without him near

I can change my words, I can cover them up
but in every birdsong I will hear his song
every sound will encompass these words
​I know, I know:
there's no bird that can compare to him at all 


​FOOL

come lay next to me my boy
I'm awake when you are sleeping
it's the only way I get into your dreams

come get next to me my boy
and I'll walk when you stand still
that's how I get you to follow me

and I'm a fool for you
that's what I'll do for you
