Tender shall I sleep While my dream is still pure And mine, only mine Wandering through a mist of Frozen trees, cast in ebony I pine away into the abyss of my existence Darkness! Embrace me! No need to resist We are slaves from the cradle to the grave Tender shall I sleep While my dream is still pure And mine, only mine Flying on angelic wings I try to find true happiness While clinging on My savage thoughts I have saved myself Crashing… Falling down Into the pool of vivid imagination Tender shall I sleep While my dream is still pure And mine, only mine

Longing 06:01
And there you stood in Dionysus’ Parthenon Your looks warmed me, as the wine flowed on Longing for a diversion on a sultry spring evening The dance of love veiled by...the light of the moon My sorrow is aching and I know now...grief will start soon! If only it could be eternal… All I have left now is my pain, which is infernal Longing… Floating on a breeze through the white night We watched a delightful world of pleasure and delight Longing for a diversion on a sultry spring evening The twisting of your virginal white peaks The soft velvety skin on your cold cheeks Scents of perfume floating from your long hair Your longing glance surrounded by sheer blue light A long kiss and you disappeared into the night All I have left now is a memory, a longing vision of a dying dream Of a fucking dying dream....it’s my dream All I have left now is a memory A longing vision of a dying dream Longing…

He’s bedazzled by The beauty of her skin So soft and gentle, Yet she has no faith within With eyes wide open She teased and kissed him She lures with her nectar of desire The garden of Eden Is a theatre to the Gods Her nectar is luring To seduce the empty soul The apple of wisdom Her gift for mankind’s sin Causing shame and penitence Within, within, within.... Fountains of grief Are flowing in my mind Forgotten images Yet our past is hard to find With eyes wide open Sifting through the filth I keep on wondering Is it love or is it guilt? Chill cuts through skin Hated, Shivering The black cloth is stained Eyes crusted, red! A shovel, a stone Sharp stalks on the fields A tiny flower mocks Or bravely celebrates! He’s bedazzled by The beauty of her skin So soft and gentle, Yet she has no faith within With eyes wide open She teased and kissed him She lures with her nectar of desire Desire…

Ohm Ah Guru Namo Amito Hum Visualize the body Translucent as a rainbow The three stages of being My spirit, a drop I am a traveller to the pure lands The channel, the path Dharmakaya near my lord’s heart My destination Scalp: Avalokiteshvara Heart: Dharmakaya The egg, The dome Of white and oval light May all creatures enjoy The purity after the ritual Spirit-drop, my heart, my soul My body is like a bird Spirit drops, into the core Body dissolves in air Drips and drops will drift Fingers dissolve in water Through all the lower doors Closed and I reach The pure land of the Buddha

Candles are casting shadows They’re dancing everywhere walking down the aisle Your eyes start to stare These tears stain sacred ground A soul was lost, but now it’s found If you give me your blessing Then I will kiss your feet Tell me, are you willing To share my every need? These tears stain sacred ground A soul was lost, but now it’s found I recite those lines Which I hold so dear I cherish those words Would you shatter them in fear? When I light a candle All becomes so clear It burns up my hand I want you here These tears stain sacred ground A soul was lost, but now it’s found

Strangers 05:12
On the run for these Gods We hardly could see Called the System or Power Or Religion or greed We are met by procedures By your angels in blue With no fucking idea About what or ‘bout whom To make us feel at home We are put behind bars To narrow for daylight To wide for the stars But we’re merely strangers No aliens, you know So don’t close your eyes ‘Cause they won’t let us show No paradise for us Some nice civil servants Accidentally smiled They call us by numbers Send us back as a file The cleaner the skill The smoother the lie The softer the kill And still silent they cry No paradise for us

In a merry-go-round of colours Life whirls by and Jama appears From some hidden dimension Behind wooden horses And smiling clowns He laughs with his fangs Wears a chain of grinning skulls Throbbing pulse of death Crumbles the pillars On which house and home are built Oh merry-go-round my simple heart Just fill it up, with liquid lead The throbbing pulse of death Skulls cave in, I broke the chains Liquid ash seeps into the earth Jama/Psychosis Sunrise of the soul The throbbing pulse of death Oh, ikabao, blue sword Cut through the black Through strings of karmic puppetry Swallow the five poisons and laugh Embrace the enemy That hideous metaphore The best and worst of self
8.
Gentle weather and blue skies On the day when The earth hugged you forever Mommy carried Your tiny reed basket From birth to never…never And still, the sun… Cool green grass And a thousand songbirds Perform the soundtrack Of the big farewell The basket sunk In fertile earth Crumbs clung to our feet And still, the sun… Don’t be sad We’ll soon catch up Until soul and silence Will merge us all Just one quiet moment Without green and song And still the sun And still, the sun…
