The End – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

Power doesn’t corrupt, we’re already corrupted
There’s no evil in the world, only humans
We’ve tipped the scale our way
But the imbalance will even out
Let the sun burn and the oceans rise
It’s not the end of the world, only ours
And we all deserve it
For our greatness and ignorance

Simplicity – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

You are nothing and so am I
None of us are gods or prophets
Death will come for us all
And even if it doesn’t, we’re still nothing
But we should be okay with that
All we really need is
good people, good food and good drink
We need good music and good stories
And maybe most of all we need good talks and laughter
But it’s too hard to have all of that
So we chase success

You Owe Me – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

I have no friends and no social life
World, you owe me
I have no woman to make me warm
World, you owe me
I’m slowly getting fatter, I hate my job, I’m not rich and I’m not living my dream
World, you owe me nothing
Absolutely nothing

The Old Gang – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

I loved you
I know I fucked up, but so did you
I apologized several times
When are you going to apologize to me?
I don’t want to waste any more words on you
It’s better that we stay unfriends
I loved you
I know I fucked up, but so did you
I apologized to you and you did apologize to me
Then you didn’t talk to me for a long time
When you came back, you had no place to live
So you started talking to me again
Right out of the fucking blue
It’s better that we stay unfriends
I loved you
None of us fucked up
We just made very different choices
Those choices changed us both
It took a long time,
but eventually we couldn’t recognize each other anymore
It’s better that we stay unfriends
But you’re the only one I wish I could still be friends with
I genuinely hope you’re happy
Good luck and live well

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

Fairy Tales – The First 25 Years of a Dreamer

I’m what they call a hopeless romantic
I idealize everything
And I want the perfect love story
The story is what I really fall in love with
I like giving roses
I like that knight in shining armour shit
That fucking ‘You’re the love of my life’ shit
I’m what they call a hopeless romantic
because I can’t stop seeing the world of love
in the form of a fairy tale
But reality is not a fairy tale
Reality is biting cold and bleeding wounds
How many times do I have to be punched in the face before I get it?
Probably until I get a brain damage
Maybe then will my brain shut up and stop telling me these fairy tales
I just want love, something real
But it’s too hard and it relies too much on chance
Just thinking of it all makes me dead tired
Fucking hell, it’s going to be good to die someday

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
