Ten Years Ago – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

I had dreams bigger than life itself
I wanted to be everything
I had time upon time and even more time
Then I took too much time
That’s how I learned the meaning of days passing
I have a new dream now
I haven’t started working on it yet
but I have time
I promise

Friends – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

All they want is food and water
They want to play and take walks
They want to be petted, sit in you lap and sleep in your bed
They want company and friendship
If you give them these simple things
they will give you their world
and they’ll never fail you
Dogs are more human than us
because they live up to our ideals
better than we do

Who The Fuck? – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

Modern life demands so many things of me
I’m supposed to get eight hours of sleep each night
I’m supposed to work out
Get to work in time
If I have a job I don’t like
I’m supposed to simply find another job that I like
The problem is that I don’t like any job at all
I’m supposed to check my notifications from all the apps
I’m supposed to answer messages, e-mails and calls
I’m supposed to have a party, fuck, drink and meet new people
I’m supposed to know everything that’s going on in the world
I’m supposed to have an opinion on all of it
Whether I know anything about it or not is not important
And I’m supposed to remember
to have a lot of super duper fun and carpe the shit out of that diem
I’m supposed to live until I’m ninety
and die happy
Who the fuck can live up to all of this shit?

Persian Goddess – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

I don’t know if it got to you, if you’ve stopped breathing
If it happened, I hope it didn’t hurt too much in the final moment
I’m so sorry for everything
I’m sorry for not trusting you and I’m sorry for hurting you
But sorries won’t do any good
I’ll meet you later and make it right
I never met you in life, but I think I fell in love with you
At least for a moment
It’s just not fair that we found the missing pieces of ourselves
Without being able to put ourselves together
Like everyone else can
I wish you peace
You deserve it more than most

A Few Observations – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

Light doesn’t always bring clarity
Sometimes it brings blindness
wrapped in ethereal linen
Sound doesn’t always make you listen
It could easily make you deaf
to everything else
Dark isn’t always dangerous
It can guide you to a self-portrait
because there is nothing else to see
Silence isn’t always silent
Sometimes there’s one beautiful note
amidst the screams of the world

Sandbox – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

Take away all the machine guns, grenades, rifles and pistols
Take away all the tanks, airplanes and ships
Take away the radar and the drones
The missiles and and nuclear bombs
Take away all the motivations
All the speeches, commercials and simple arguments
Take away all the soldiers in all the armies
What do you have left?
Two children quarrelling over the best toys in the sandbox
