A change of seasons

I remember a time
My frail, virgin mind
Watched the crimson sunrise
Imagined what it might find
Life was filled with wonder
I felt the warm wind blow
I must explore the boundaries
Transcend the depth of winter’s snow

Innocence caressing me
I never felt so young before
There was so much life in me
Still I longed to search for more

But those days are gone now
Changed like a leaf on a tree
Blown away forever
Into the cool autumn breeze
The snow has now fallen
And my sun’s not so bright
I struggle to hold on
With the last of my might

In my den of inequity
Viciousness and subtlety
Struggle to ease the pain
Struggle to find the same

Ignorance surrounding me
I’ve never been so filled with fear
All my life’s been drained from me
The end is drawing near…

[III. Carpe Diem]

„Carpe diem
Seize the day”

I’ll always remember
The chill of November
The news of the fall
The sounds in the hall
The clock on the wall
Ticking away
„Seize the Day”
I heard him say
Life will not always be this way
Look around
Hear the sounds
Cherish your life
While you’re still around

(„Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)
(Old Time is still a-flying;)
(And this same flower that smiles today)
(Tomorrow will be dying”)

We can learn
From the past
But those days
Are gone
We can hope
For the future
But there might not be one

The words stuck in my mind
Alive from what I’ve learned
I have to seize the day
To home I returned

Preparing for her flight
I held with all my might
Fearing my deepest fright
She walked into the night
She turned for one last look
She looked me in the eye
I said, „I Love You…

(„It’s the most awful thing you’ll ever hear”)
(„If you’re lying to me…”)
(„Oh, you dearly love her”)
(„…just have to leave…)
(All our lives”)
(„Seize the day!”)
(„Something happened”)
(„Gather ye rosebuds while ye may”)
(„She was killed”)

[IV. The Darkest Of Winters]


[V. Another World]

So far or so it seems
All is lost
With nothing fulfilled
Off the pages and the
T.V. screen
Another world
Where nothing’s true

Tripping through
The life fantastic
Lose a step
And never get up
Left alone
With a cold blank stare
I feel like giving up

I was blinded by a paradise
Utopia high in the sky
A dream that only drowned me
Deep in sorrow, wondering why

Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what
Don’t let him be
Let’s feed upon his misery
Then string him up for all the world to see

I’m sick of all
Your hypocrites
Holding me at bay
And I don’t need
Your sympathy
To get me through the day

Seasons change and so can I
Hold on Boy
No time to cry
Untie these strings
I’m climbing down
I won’t let them push me away

Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what
Don’t let him be
Let’s feed upon
His misery
Now it’s time for them
To deal with me

[VI. The Inevitable Summer]


[VII. The Crimson Sunset]

I’m much wiser now
A lifetime of memories
Run through my head
They taught me how
For better or worse
Alive or dead
I realize
There’s no turning back
Life goes on
The offbeaten track

I sit down with my son
Set to see the Crimson Sunset
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)
Many years have come and gone
I’ve lived my life, but now must move on
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)
He’s my only one
Now that my time has come
Now that my life is done
We look into the sun
„Seize the day
And don’t you cry
Now it’s time
To say good-bye
Even though
I’ll be gone
I will live on
Live on”


We’re here because we’re here

One has to come to terms with one’s own mortality.
And you can’t really help people who are having problems with mortality,
If you’ve got problems of your own.
So you have to begin to sort things out,
And I thought I had sorted things out until I saw this excerpt from this book,
Of certainty I shall remember what it said:
„Life is not the opposite of death. Death is the opposite of birth. Life is eternal.”
And I thought that it’s the most profound words I have ever heard about that issue and it really put me in peace.
(I felt it was a wonderful story.)
And that’s it.
What else is there to say?
Life is eternal.
Surely the opposite of life is not the death, but life is eternal.
There is no opposite.
And so, what happens is, I suppose,
(And isn’t it a raging or outrageous)
State of pure consciousness, stillness and silence?
Yeah, what we are looking for now,
We are searching for and we have been searching for,
Now we’ve become closer it and now we know it’s already there,
Is there for ever to seek,
It’s there,
And it’s going be there,
All the time,

Only you can hear your life
Only you can heal inside

(Life is eternal…)

Show without showing

What you know without knowing

Oh, it’s a mystery to me
We have a greed with which we have agreed
And you think you have to want more than you need
Until you have it all you won’t be free

Society, you’re a crazy breed
Hope you’re not lonely without me…

When you want more than you have
You think you need…
And when you think more than you want
Your thoughts begin to bleed
I think I need to find a bigger place
Because when you have more than you think
You need more space (lyrics)

Lie to myself start a brand new beginning/ But I’m losing my time in this fear of living

Pun şi varianta live pentru că sună al dracu de bine:

Just freedom is only a hallucination
That waits at the edge of the distant horizon
And we are all strangers in global illusion
Wanting and needing impossible heaven

Chasing the dream as they swim out to sea
The mirage ahead says that they can be free
Become lost in delusion drowning their reason
Swept on by the current of selfish ambition

Frightened ashamed and afraid of the blame
The questions are screaming the answers are hiding
The sickness is growing distracted condition
You can feel the disgust and smell the confusion

Lying insane getting soaked in the rain
Draining the sky of the guilt and the shame
The nightmare is coming the clouds are descending
Pulled under two thousand metres a second

Clawing at walls that just slip through my fingers
Darkness consuming collapsing and breaking
Distilled paranoia seeped into the walls
And filled in the cracks with the whispering calls

Shadows are forming take heed of the warnings
Creeping around at four in the morning
Lie to myself start a brand new beginning
But I’m losing my time in this fear of living

Freedom is only a hallucination
That waits at the edge of the places you go when you dream
Deep in the reason betrayal of feeling
The mistakes that I made tore my conscience apart at the seems

Freedom is only a hallucination
That waits at the edge of the places you go when you dream…

Freedom is only a hallucination
That waits at the edge of the places you go when you dream
Deep in the reason betrayal of feeling
The mistakes that I made tore my conscience apart at the seems

Freedom is only a hallucination
That waits at the edge of the places you go when you dream…


Noul OM

Nu devorează numai produsele cumpărate, ci şi orice persoană diferită de marele uriaş – societatea. Aruncă orice îi este nefolositor, fără să se întrebe dacă este sau va fi folositor. Ignoră invizibilul pentru că nu-l poate observa, şi se ghidează numai după ce-i sare în ochi. Nu acceptă vechiul pentru că alimentele perimate miros urât. Nu-şi pune multe întrebări pentru că riscă să primească răspunsuri. Reneagă natura pentru că de acolo se trage. Urăşte singurătatea pentru că de-acolo iese la iveală invizibilul din el. Este Bun orice este sau va fi un produs, Rău restul. Observă realitatea fracţionat. În jur are obiecte valoroase foarte bine categorisite. Nu poate trăi fără ele pentru că el însuşi este tot un obiect. Cel mai valoros obiect din lume. Nu are fantezie. Se limitează doar la concret. Uneori este religios; îi dă lui Dumnezeu atât cât merită. Îşi calcă-n picioare semenii, pentru că el trebuie să fie în vârf şi dacă n-ar face-o ar fi călcat în picioare de alţii ca el. Vorbeşte numai despre obiecte, orice lucru imaterial îi provoacă un blocaj de gândire. Jobul pe care-l are îi va clădi o carieră. El îşi doreşte o carieră. Îşi doreşte să ajungă şef, să fie stăpân peste o mână de oameni pentru început. Piramida nevoilor sale are undeva aproape de vârf imperativul de a fi temut şi de a stăpâni. Nu-l interesează învăţăturile el este învăţat. Nu se apleacă să asculte. Doar vorbeşte. Când ascultă nu o face pentru a asculta, ci pentru a critica. Pune preţ pe orice. Oamenii pot fi cumpăraţi. Banii pentru el nu sunt un scop, ci mijlocul cu care poate cumpăra tot, chiar dacă pentru asta trebuie să producă bani întreaga viaţă. Se căsătoreşte numai pentru a avea şi o amantă. Merge cu maşina numai pentru a se expune privirilor. Se simte mic şi insignifiant în două picioare. Are nevoie de atenţia tuturor, pentru că niciodată nu a acordat atenţie cuiva. Creierul este un obiect care funcţionează ca o maşină. Are mai mulţi prieteni decât îi poate permite comunicarea să interacţioneze cu ei. Copiilor săi le cumpără mitraliere de jucărie ca să se obişnuiască de mici cu prelungirea firească a braţelor oricărui om războinic. Se laudă că citeşte mult. Se consideră cult. Important. Îşi impune punctul de vedere logic, imbatabil. Este raţional. Nu vede dincolo de zidul conceptelor. Nu citeşte poveşti copiilor pentru că a fugit întreaga viaţă de copilărie. Perioada aia plină de fantezie prostească. Îi e ruşine să se prostească de faţă cu alţii. Numai copiii şi nebunii o fac. Are o atitudine de superioritate care îi aduce numai beneficii. Semenii lui îl respectă şi îşi doresc să ajungă ca el. Mulţi intră în competiţie cu el. Dar el, omul superior, îi devansează fără prea multe probleme. Se simte bine când învinge pentru că a umilit pe cineva. În sinea lui tremură de plăcere când umileşte. Astfel îşi dovedeşte superioritatea într-un mod Absolut. Astfel, ajunge la vârful piramidei nevoilor. Piramida lui Maslow e perimată!
