about

feat. Jessica Kilroy

lyrics

Spring of 1978

That night he stood in desperation
He was all alone
Waiting in the station
And sitting on a stone

Busses kept passing by him
The last one passed as well
People were flowing like a stream
Following some sound’s swell

He could not hear none anymore
I bet he could not see
All he needed was a shore,
Or just a way to flee

His heart was down, down and dead
His needs unsatisfied
He held up his mixed up head
And soundlessly he cried

Peace was such a distant dream
And distant dreams were all,
He let out a silent scream
As a song for the fall

Suddenly a man came
And stood in front of him
He called him by his name
And said “I’m in your dream…

Poor man don’t feel sorry
And don’t you hesitate
You got nothing to worry
It never is too late

Life’s not a game of chances
No matter what they say
Look at these empty branches;
They’ll be green again some day”

Then the vision faded out
And he was calm and clear
He felt like standing up to shout
That there should be no fear

He died before he passed the gate
On that cold November morn
And on the spring of 1978
His silent scream was reborn…
