They Send You Back to the Beginning

They send you back to the beginning
with tears in your eyes
making you try harder,
to get it right.

Alone you feel the mountains
of the spirit at your shoulder
and in the heavy darkness
you start to rise

They send you back to the beginning
because you didn’t do it right
they hurt you and make you terrified
So you start again lonelier
then you ever felt before
so vulnerable
with nowhere you can hide

Alone you feel the mountains
of the spirit at your shoulder
alone you feel the strength
when the world feels colder
and in the darkness
you begin to rise a little
and in that lonely darkness
you start to rise

They send you back to the beginning
you’ll have to get it right
you try
but it doesn’t work out
you’ll face them alone
with their weapons in their desks
and you don’t understand
what it’s all about

The father of death

You took away my passport; it was the only passport that I needed in life
The passport to love

Every living thing is born with this passport
It’s the piece of life that beats the heart like a hand a bounces a rubber ball

It was evening there was a lake red sun waiting for the drinking to begin
There were silhouettes against the sun’s rays like a merry-go-round

I was waiting to open another secret letter
And inside would be some silver animals about to come alive

But like all passport controllers at the border
You didn’t want this immigrant to love you

So you had the pterodactyls fly in and take it away

Selfish bully, where could you go that I wouldn’t find you
Down among the roses as life turned to death
