HOLD ON

Another experiment of lyrical form and content. I rewrote it several times to create its special kind of rythm. In the end I believe it could be even singable. // Ein weiteres lyrisches Inhalts-Form-Experiment, das ich einige Male überarbeitet habe. Insbesondere, um seinen speziellen Rythmus zu kreieren. Letztlich könnte es in dieser Form sogar singbar sein.

Hold on, a little time is dying
I guess you better stop
NOW! HOW
Is the story going to end?
Where are the many hours?
Think I saw one in the paper today
Just give me a single moment back!
I’m so afraid of you
And truly most of all the
SILENCE OF YOUR VIOLENCE!
Do not leave me here alone!
Why is nobody else in here
Telling me there’s going to be
ANOTHER BOTHER
Breaking all the windowpanes
Of my carefully built glass house
Please, I want my mind swallowed
Spit it out, clean and empty
Like in the innocent days!
I know there’s a danger
You eat it up
Fear’s what makes me hate so much the
VIOLENCE OF YOUR SILENCE
That destroys my fragile heart
Don’t you know the eagle kills the
DOVE LOVE
Will you pass me the sugar please
I want to sweeten my mind
Planning my strike-back with a smile
So you better watch out!
I already looked through the
WALL ALL
The things you say
Sound so funny to me.
