TBT: Many Frustrations (2005)

I tried my best
Like all the rest
I went down the silk road
Found myself alone
Without a home
Dying
Thinking about love
Looking high above
And found myself alone

I tried my best
To pass the test
I went as far as I could
Found myself alone
Without hope
Trying
Thinking about dying
While I'm crying
And found myself alone

I tried my best
Like all the rest
I went to the end
Found myself alone
Without satisfaction
Sighing
Thinking about silence
Running out of patience
And found myself alone

Cringe Forest

I would see myself befriended
Laughing with friends
Always growing
Getting lost in the cringe forest
Happiness-
In our world-
Expanded

You would see yourself unintended
Bonding with friends
Always glowing
Going deeper into the cringe forest
Friendship-
In your world-
Strengthened

Dedicated to Mandy and Zoé

TBT: Lioness (2002)

Easily broken light
In my heart-
A fondness for affection
I search with dedication
The great teacher-
As you await with fascination

Unpleasant feelings
In my mind-
A fondness for reflection
I search with perfection
The great messenger-
As you await with admiration

Spite

Acquire shelter
In your own hands
Never let go
The you that will be-
Forget reason
And find security

Uproot the emptiness
That you feel inside
Never let in
Those that cause injury-
Forget nostalgia
And find destiny

Hold Back

All alone with my heartbeat
Silence, it has no meaning really
He said it with a single sigh
Feel it within me, sadly

Leave me-
Leave me alone-
Leave me alone to be me

Wrote a letter addressed to myself
Blank, it has no meaning really
I said it with a single drop of blood
Drowning within me, slowly

Hold me-
Hold me forever-
Hold me forever to be free

TBT: Lover's Urban Electric Blues (2000)

Urban blues in my basement
Electric guitar in my hand-
I've got this drug I call music
And a little sunshine in my heart

A beautiful girl once told me
I play like romance-
My sound is sweet
My rhythm is strong

And though I'm really hooked, baby
One thing gets me going-
Ain't nothing drive me crazy
Like a kiss from my lady - oh yeah
