in the quietly withering castle during the thirsty time of change an ash-coloured me is just vanishing slowly. gathering the stars and building a castle of sand; where i utter a soft prayer. the sound of footsteps falls into nothingness and the ambushing waves come and destroy everything that once was and drags it out to sea. drowning.
sun been down for days/ a pretty flower in a vase/ a slipper by the fireplace/ a cello lying in its case. soon she’s down the stairs/ her morning elegance she wears/ the sound of water makes her dream/ awoken by a cloud of steam/ she pours a daydream in a cup/ a spoon of sugar sweetens up. and she fights for her life/ as she puts on a coat/ and she fights for her life on the train/ she looks at the rain as it pours/ and she fights for her life/ as she goes in a store/ with a thought she has caught by a thread/ she pays for the bread/ and she goes…/ nobody knows.
“you might have some big time producer helping you get on stage, but it’s up to you to steal the audience’s hearts. you can not capture their souls without investing some of yours into it.”
~ Lee Oisoo
i’m just a little bit caught in the middle/ life is a maze/ and love is a riddle/ i don’t know where to go/ can’t do it alone/ i’ve tried/ and i don’t know why
