I cleaned up the highway by throttling the engine aflame
Surpassing my memories trying to flee in a blast,
I'm scudding inside of my mind to the radiant frame,
A door into summer that stays a remain of the past,
A twinkling rectangle of light, a connection to happiness, where
Is ever the way leading out of the darkness Iíve done?
"You never return as you enter the Land of Nowhere" -
Was carved on the door which had set me apart from the sun.
The clouds of indifferent creatures, they swallow my call,
These birds never sing, mesmerized in the infinite flow,
Ensigns of this place are the snow in the summer to fall
And stars to fade out in the dark when the wind stops to blow.
The spill of the lassitude emptied the wish to revive
The vision of past buried down in the littoral foam,
Iíve captured the sight, and Iíve seen you could stand it alive
When felt for my soul in the haze of inferno to roam.
Our minds are entwined with the horror that came from above,
And never awake from the clasp of a suicide dream,
Where beauty has vanished away from the place of our love
And time once has stopped in the light of a sacrament beam.
The sun never shines in the thicket of loss where my cries
Apply to the state that has grown from illusion and cram,
I reached it again, but what do I need in the skies
If nothing else matters and no-one can stay where I am?
Iím sitting in silence while nothingness sinks in a deep
Of dying subconsciousness lost in the sea of despair,
Afraid of the things that appear from its depth when I strip
The core of my memory locked by the feelings unfair,
The metal of rain comes to pour all day on the shore
And splashes of scale start to jump on the layer of sense
Thatís melting to fluid in fitful attempt to restore
The drops of my life boiling off in a desperate dance.
The flashes transparent, they squirt in the riddle of rhymes:
With sorrow I try to re-enter the game but in vain,
The self-demonstration is cracked for the end of all times
And sources of matter are never attracted again,
The afterlife bells chime the day I've to kiss'em good-bye
Demanding a quant from my colorful energy tray,
Down in the depth of the gray they invite me to die,
They long for my lifetime but nothing is left of today.
