great drama 05:52
(a tender dream more like a nightmare filled with faces spiralling and old lovers that will never leave) hey hey are you sleeping let’s make you dream of something that will twist you up just a little (just a little) what if you were with the person you think you love they loved you back and all that stuff holding hands laughing it off you are in love always have been never admitted now you’re screwed up and stuck in those dreams they follow you ‘round wherever you go they keep you up until the daylight shows great drama great drama a slap in the face would probably feel better don’t hate yourself it is too late now the lover’s gone and you are out of head but don’t hate yourself now it's never over yet no, no go back to sleeping hey hey are you awake now (oh well) just go back to sleep and close your eyes we’ll throw it at you another dream another dream to make you feel like hell but don't hate yourself now it's only a dream it's only... there’s some sand in your pocket and you can’t walk "cause it’s too heavy there’s some sand in your head and it rolls up when you sleep there’s some blood in your mouth and you don’t know where it’s coming from there’s a noise in your head there’s a siren it won’t stop (no no no no) no it won’t no it won’t no it won’t stop
(it either moves u or it takes you by the throat all those things life throws you and takes back the past the things that were present and the things that will what are they where are they from where are they going it's hard to catch a breath sometimes, somehow) past & present moving fast and i stand somewhere in the middle of a room full of paintings looking at all of those lifeless faces thinkin' to myself "is this what we are becoming too some kind of dead" past & present moving fast and i say everything changes way too fast i should be more afraid and go out to feel the sun on my skin 'cause it's the only thing that makes me feel alive here in this crowded town full of people screaming shit and i tried to survive and i tried to cover up all of my bones with some kind of happy but i couldn't find my way home i was heading north i was heading west people told me "girl no you are south" oh and i tried to make it out alive in this mess around me but the past and the present they kept talking loud and loud and loud and louder ah ah ah ah ah ah ah they were so loud, so loud and i tried oh i try
[science of fish is the science of me or another fish finding comfort in distant love & solitude] i am a fish born from the winter i rise i swallowed the sea when i was young i drowned oh my oh my oh my oh my youth i think i caught something wrong oh my oh my oh my oh my god can i go back home there's water on my skin water on my skin i'm art i'm quiet as fire things they burn my mind i'm alive i think i caught something a cold carried the wind the earth it hurts i am so low so lost solo i love the solitude i got i think i lost something my head my heart my feet can't touch the ground i am so low so lost solo i feel my best when i'm alone i am still a fish sensible as 10 i laugh i stand inbetween the lilies and all i've loved i am i am i am i am i am something i can't understand and why and why am i so emotional i can't float home
a walk 05:43
(people and stuff they swallow you here and there now and then without notice u suddenly need to run away from all of it and feel the outside. just take a walk) i need to take a walk alone in the park i need to freeze from my bones, they crack in the pavement my shoes they stay trapped just like my head thinking of both you and all there is alive i need to take a walk somewhere out there wherever whenever just to get my head out of my chest and my heart it's pounding so fast for everything and nothing at all i sometimes wish i could just wrap up all there is inside my mind can't figure out it's all collided can't go on no it's not right & i need to take a walk please no need to talk i need to be closer but far away from everything i just need to breathe in breathe out just need to breathe just breathe
