Beast of the dark

As soon as the sun shines down
it changes all things
In the dark and blue shadows
you are a beast
Hunting on the imaginaries
that try to take our minds
Sending them back
while barking their lust into fear
Your eyes turn from black and wild
into yellow and full of hope
Praising the lights for their return
and searching beneath the ground in my sight
And yes I know
you will always be free and of the dark
but you won't lose me

Like how the sun

Like how the sun
catches the birds
flying fiercly
against the cold grey
of everchanging surroundings

That's how
you catch my mind
that's full of questions
against the blinding lights
of all other things

De kus
die je me gaf
op de avond
toen het altijd avond zou blijven
op mijn lippen
voel ik nog branden
in mijn hoofd
in mijn handen

De hand
die streek
over mijn haar
dat opeens zo lang was
en als fluweel
voel ik nog strelen
over mijn armen
over mijn benen

De blik
met lichte spikkeltjes
in de donkere ogen
die leken op het groenste wild
en de ruigste zee
voel ik nog vuren
door mijn ogen
door mijn gedachten

Midden in het geweld
is het mooi om te staan
wanneer de lucht
groen en rood en wit wordt gekleurd
en spetterende deeltjes
de macht overnemen
van fonkelende sterren
Maar toch
binnen achter het glas
tegen zachte doezelende dekens
en warm metaal
vertoeven wij liever
Terwijl daarbuiten
ver weg
de luchten
groen en rood en wit worden gekleurd
door spetterende deeltjes
die de macht overnemen
van blijde gezichten
en ze laten vrezen
voor wat er komt
in 2017

Fix me

I'm broken and I'm lying here alone
My head's up on my arms and tired hands
My mind is twisted between all those clans
My heart feels like it's made of only stone
I do not know the source of all this cold
It's like the thought of white, unfallen flocks
that should be here now with the christmas clocks
just like the stories that I have been told

But you, with those blue eyes I've seen among
You brighten me although I don't know how
I'm asking you, without a formal vow
Now, would you fix me just like in our song?

ideas in my head

What if
the ideas in my head
would just flicker on
like the lamps in the street
when the dark has begun
And the lightbulb in the room
If I'd screw it a little tighter
would the thoughts in my eyes
flash a little brighter
It's only time
It's only faith

About war

When all the things you tried to think were good
have suddenly become the source of fear,
then at the very place where you first stood
has someone dropped an unforgivenlly tear.

And on the ground where those now lit the lights
I'm standing still but without things to know
'Cause we all be and go just like the tides
and can not say: Oh time, I miss you so.

Yes, everyhting has changed and not a sign
of knowledge here is to be claimed as mine.

met gesloten ogen

Ik kijk toe met gesloten ogen
hoe je snel je handen dichtslaat
Hoe je ogen de waarheid vertellen
als je haar voelt tintelen op je huid
in de kooi die je net hebt gemaakt
Je luistert, concentreert
Kijkt plots op
en toont trots en met geluk
dat je nu eindelijk begrijpt
wat mijn gedachte wilde vertellen

The temptation of desire

The temptation of desire
that makes us feel the way we do
is nothing more than just a liar
but we haven't got a clue
