LYRICS


DERVISH
(written 2018/recorded 2018)
contains the second movement of a piano sonata in c minor, D 958
by Franz Schubert/1797-1828


im in my comfort zone
and i wont step out
to be a do-gooder
whoever steps out first
has lost the game
once you step out
others will not follow
we all have been
perfectly lulled
we all have vested rights
the more we have
the less we want to forfeit

i revolve around myself
in my comfort zone
im moving
faster and faster
a dervish am i and i
i hug the trees
i let my heart bleed
i count the tears of the world
i get high and higher on this sense of pain
i do not realize anything else any more

i love the things that serve
to soothe my conscience
i throw a penny into a cap
to eliminate poverty
i drive a little slower sometimes
to recuperate the environment
i get angry when
others do not do the same
when others do not
take part in my devilment
and then i fall asleep
the less we want to forfeit

i revolve around myself
in my comfort zone
im moving
faster and faster
a dervish am i and i
i hug the trees
i let my heart bleed
i count the tears of the world
i get high and higher on this sense of pain
i do not realize anything else any more
