A Force

Change comes uninvited
By force
Or unwelcomed

That tree is no longer a tree
It's a log

The streets lead somewhere else now
Where were you going?

We pay with time
For something we have no days for

We buy shoes
Collect shirts
Try a different fit
For the sake of change

But it comes
Unwelcomed

The Musician

The piano came to me
It could not find the right key
Apparently it was looking for a door

Then came the drums
Causing a ruckus
Seems I was the only one
Who took the time to listen

The bass-
With its deep voice
Didn't know wether it was a fish
Or an instrument of greatness

And the guitar-
I looked for the guitar
It was ringing a sad song

I suppose it was looking for me too.

Selling the Guitar

The old strings of this guitar
they argue with my fingers

Perhaps the E string
with its proud tone
has better things to do

Maybe one night
this guitar
chose to become a piano
or speak other languages

Someone put the words
Out of tune
It no longer understands me

Now the songs refuse to be heard
Now things don't sound the same
And this guitar, I'm selling-
Perhaps has something against my fingers.

Paper Plains

Where are you now
somehow my dreams are real
and in the world of logic
stats and mathematics
things have become so confusing

Where did it go?
That thing called reason-
and who stares back in this mirror?
He never greets me in the morning

Where are your wheels taking us today?
and most important
Who made that decision?

Let's not stay home today
they sell so many things out there
unfortunatley they ran out of songs
who fabricated these words?
and my guitar?
