about

Something about self-reinvention.

lyrics

You can't take my thoughts away.

Dependent on a mood,
A feeling no one can describe appears,
We ignore the signs all around us
By violently straining our nerves.

I’m battling you cuz you’re battling me,
Cuz they’re battling you for they could not be free.
I’m seeing the points you can’t see cuz you’re blind,
Cuz they blinded you for they could not see behind.

I’m battling you cuz you’re battling me,
Cuz they’re battling you for they could not be free.
I’m going the ways you can’t go cuz you’re tame,
Cuz they tamed you for they do not want you aflame.

A Bird is born and takes off from the ground,
Time and space are moving so fast you can’t count.
While the minutes and meters are passing by,
We ignore our brainwaves’ philosopher’s cry.

Goin’ back, goin’ forth, you won’t ever reach
The point you can say of: “I wanna stay!”
You seem confused and I don’t wanna preach,
But there is still something more to say:

No, I don’t save you,
You have to want to.
No, I won’t save
you!
Be your own phoenix and try to grow.

A bird is flying and then crashes on the ground,
Time and space are moving so fast you can’t count.
While the minutes and meters are passing by,
We ignore our brainwaves’ philosopher’s cry.

Gone back, gone forth, you didn’t ever reach
The point you could say of: “I wanna stay!”
You seemed confused and I didn’t wanna preach,
But there's been something more to say!

You're exhausted, depressed and feel outplayed
By a force you are unwilling to understand.
Confused, misused, you resign to refuse,
To escape the moment, to free the condemned.
By which notion this comes I don’t know,
But I surely will never, I will never offend
Your idea of life for the sake of protection
but if you want to, I will be at hand.

No, I don’t save you,
You have to want to.
No, I won’t save
you!
I won’t!
So be your own phoenix and try to grow!
So be your own phoenix!
