lyrics

everyday the sun is strolling into the night
northern winds for months are blowing still find no quiet
all the rivers flow and flow but the sea is never pleased

the musing is exhausting, no one’s coming close
none of our senses is hoping to achieve the aim
our desires are buried behind untouchable walls

as we look at the tree of gnowsis we see growing harm
all the grief of the world is carried by the fruit of lore
laughter is so meaningless and useless is all joy

the one who remembers all the bygone days
is lying here and weaping but the future never pays
present is trickling off, but the past has its trace

my obit is what I long for, not the day of birth
a mourning house is my comfort as against a place of joy
it’s better to keep all your empty words
than to bring me no advice

we’re all fading
we’re all blind
only reaching for the wind.
