Spring Starts with Autumn tracks

Lyrics

1. FLOATING TOWARDS DISTRESS

Floating Towards Distress
She runs to the river down below
Towards a boat under a willow
Away from the mirror, the loom and the tower
Where she yearned for him, hour after hour

Under a sky like a dark blue dome
Stands the queen of loneliness
A skin as white as the rivers foam
Which tips the hem of her dress

A crown of a pearl garland she wore
Blinking to Camelot in moonlight
To which she stares, through tears
Tears that are clouding her sight

A forlorn goddess
Seeking for her God
Carving in the stern
The lady Shallot

Like a prophet seeing the entire future
She looses the chain
While death stretches its hand and lures
Seizing her to gain

Paralysed and in distress, she floats
Into the night by darkness clothe
When the lady sings a mournful song
Chanting through the spheres of night
Where it dissolves at the horizon
Like her life
UndoneĀ…




2. CROWN OF THOUGHTS

Crown Of Thoughts
Filling this world with a gloomy gaze
While living in an absorbing haze
A deep grey lake is all they see

Focussed on what will come and what will be
What will be shall come at last
And knowing what will come has already passed

Thinking and thinking, it's going to deep
The borders are gone now, even in his sleep
Where is the beginning, where is the end?
What will you go through, where do you stand?

A sorcerer, a beggar
A king or a knight
The emperor of a world
The world of his mind

Intelligence that crossed the lines of his stare
Enchanted by the pearls at the bottom of the lake
It catches a glimpse in this world of fake

And takes along a piece of a mystery
That is there, an isolated soul, dreaming or awake
Or one that is open, insane or full of care

This is the beginning, the beginning of the end
What will you go through, there where you stand

A sorcerer, a beggar
A king or a knight
The emperor of the world
The world of mankind




3. THE REST OF MY DAYS

The Rest Of My Days
Different winds of sorrow restrain me
Every time I try to keep my head above
I'm drowning in sadness, tears become a sea
While I'm desperately searching for a key

Help me to recover the blaze
Lead me through this life
Then I can survive
The rest of my days

Take me by my clammy hands
And bring me to a world I've never seen
Far away, to unknown lands
Across paths where I have never been

Help me to recover the blaze
Lead me through this life
Then I can survive
The rest of my days

The suppression of emotions inside
Makes that I can't mention my feelings you said
While recovering from disappointments I always slide
For I know the answer is just in my head
