The other day I browsed through the lyrics of some of my very old songs and I discovered a couple of lines I could not remember writing. Yet I must have written them at some point, as it is my handwriting. I can’t even tell you what this fragment means but the poetic force of these lines struck me and that’s why you’ll find them below.

Maybe you’ll think, what kind of crap is this? If so, well, this is a blog called “Things that will never last…” so you’ll forget quickly about those lines – as I actually did, not being able to remember writing them…Interestingly enough I apparently crossed out the first stanza…

Oppressed by all the voices around

The demons are closing in on you

Insecurity is your guiding star

You’re never sure who you are


Dead eyes face me as I look upon your face

The face that once was the future of a world

To come has lost its vigour


The world has gone to sleep but you

Are still awake in dreams

Left behind in your fantasies

Of a better world to come

    I do like your crap.
    I love the lines: “Dead eyes face me as I look upon your face” and “The world has gone to sleep but you”
    Maybe it was a kind of tongue langue 😉 even if I would say I have definitely not the gift of interpreting them I can say you what your crap means for me.
    For me it describes some one who has left the young teenage age (future of a world), is disillusioned about the world and himself(I associate dead eyes with the emptiness you sometimes see in the eyes of someone), has a lot of questions but can’t find answers and tries to escape in a dream world.
    But as we know some times we should just not try to interpret and should just enjoy the beauty…

    Thanks for interpreting my…well whatever it is…so you’re suggesting I’m writing in tongues? I like your interpretation, although I can’t tell if it’s right or wrong (as I don’t remember writing this and what my intentions were) and that’s obviously not the point…
