A Monument to Fear ... To Be Remembered, But Never Awaken Again


(I:) Strain...

I picked a stone
on a dirt road that
leads to nowhere...

the stone cut my hands,
weary and bruised
I dropt the stone
on top of the others -
the heavy load
I drag around
straining my back ...

Like others
a wanderer,
burdened
by a heavy
load,
aimless?
lost?
aren't we all?
are we all?

Choirs of angels, in heavenly voices -
"Poor soul,
crushed by the burden of stone
drop your heavy load,
open your heart to the light!"

Terrors of night
in langourous voices, sing -
"Beautiful soul,
abandon your heavy load,
open your heart to the night..."


(II:) ... deaf to the calls of angels...


Deaf to the calls of angels,
this is not my tale.
Once, by a wailing tree,
I built a tomb
and laid there all my fears ...


First were the stones,
then,
with these
bruised, battered, bloody hands,
I built a monument
to this
DEAD
burden of fear
to be remembered, but never awaken again
... now I am free

Do you know what it takes?

(III:) ... relief ... (instrumental)

(IV:) ... free, whatever may come ...

So here I am,
at my most exposed,
no guards, no hiding,
the strongest I've been...

free

A speck of dust
to be blown in the wind...
Whatever may come,
kindness or sorrow,
I am free.

Whatever may come
whether I'll meet
angels or worms
I shall embrace them
with the same love and longing...

I am free...

Whatever may come,
kindness, sorrow
I shall embrace them
with the same love and longing...
