LEADEN SLUMBERS
(written 2014/recorded 2014)



donít you think thereís too much reality
or is everybody bluffing again
and the dim red sun glows on the desert

leaden lassitude in a heady world
we bear each otherís burden, fishtailing
and the moonlight glows on the mountain top

tell me what you help to produce my friend
prodigality, excrescent knowledge
and the street lights glow on puddles of rain

are you running, now tell me, still running
while your target keeps on moving away
and the desk lamp glows on sheets of paper

never doubt yourself
no naivety
never surrender
to leaden slumbers

but then again, in a calm windless night
falling asleep in the midst of the day
some notes have survived the delirium

sometimes i do not understand a thing
something i might have understood before
important things seem to have slipped away

a wave of fatigue washes over me
too much to handle, i am slowing down
my eyes are aching, i am dwindling down

always doubt yourself
more naivety
always surrender
to leaden slumbers

leaden slumbers make
the world disappear
take this chance and run
run away from here
