Half Deaf I Sing

Half Deaf I Sing

Half deaf I sing
The songs of glory and victory
Inside my stupefied mind cave.

Half asleep I find myself buried
under weak limbs of self-forgetfulness.

Half blind I am dancing
On never ending strings of time.

Your pain will melt my heart of stone
Shedding tears of grief – unbearable.

Falsehood bursts
The truth-mirror
That often hides the new beginning.

And the wind always whispers gently
The ancient half-forgotten melody…

           but

           Half deaf I sing
           The songs of glory and victory
           Inside my stupefied mind cave.

           Half asleep I find myself buried
           under weak limbs of self-forgetfulness.

           Half blind I am dancing
           On never ending strings of time.

           Your pain will melt my heart of stone
           Shedding tears of grief – unbearable.

           Falsehood bursts
           The truth-mirror
           That often hides the new beginning.

           And the wind always whispers gently
           The ancient half-forgotten melody…

                                  but

                                  Half deaf I sing
                                  The songs of glory and victory
                                  Inside my stupefied mind cave.

                                  Half asleep I find myself buried
                                  under weak limbs of self-forgetfulness.

                                  Half blind I am dancing
                                  On never ending strings of time.

                                  Your pain will melt my heart of stone
                                  Shedding tears of grief – unbearable.

                                  Falsehood bursts
                                  The truth-mirror
                                  That often hides the new beginning.

                                  And the wind always whispers gently
                                  The ancient half-forgotten melody…
