In my world,
night and day have nearly changed.
Sun went down,
and it’s shining still, it’s strange.
People push and they pull from every side,
Judges visit me,
and there’s no place to hide.
And they kill and they torture, they don’t see.
Break my will,
give me immortality.
In these moments, you were with me many times,
and I saw enemies so close as rhymes.
Then I played
Songs, that made me strong again,
I fell deep,
don’t ask, when I rise again.
But that’s fine,
day and night I‘m here with you,
Are you mine?
I have drowned, but drowned with you.
