Aliens Don't Change Lanes

It’s them – they’re here again

The aliens that speak sand

They bend the space

They loop the time

They want to understand

 

Why humans are so beautiful

Yet spiteful little things sometimes

The universe is a big place

And there’s still some room to grow

 

    Aliens don’t change lanes

 

It’s them – they’ve come tonight

The aliens with no face

They spin the words

They turn the worlds

To find another space

 

Their potential is beautiful

Beyond our wildest hopes and dreams

If only we could grow a bit

And rise to earn their trust

 

    Some time from now it all will seem

    Yes, momentarily so clear

    The understanding will keep sinking in

 

    It’ll drive away the fear

    Yet the aliens, they’re here

    We must keep on learning

    Yet none of us speaks sand

 

It’s them – they came at last

The aliens of the past

They learn our ways

They teach us means

To build a change that lasts

 

We need all help that we can get

They'll only get us started, oh

We have to go the extra mile

But none of us speaks sand!

 

    Some time from now it all will seem

    Yes, momentarily so clear

    The understanding will keep sinking in

 

    It’ll drive away the fear

    Yet the aliens, they’re here

    We must keep on learning

    Yet none of us speaks sand

 

    Aliens don’t change lanes

Memory

There are so many things I don’t remember

So many moments that I think are dead to me

Passages in books that I’m quite sure I’ve read

Storylines and heroes gone for good

 

It’s almost as if there is no continuum

No endless chain of days to call a life

The snapshots follow one another 

In a manner that is rather disconnected from reality

 

    (Memory)

    Memory, oh so quiet

    (Memory)

    Where are you?

    (Memory)

    Where are you?

    (Memory)

 

I once thought dementia came down when you’re older

Me, I’ve forgotten since the day that I was born

Connections that are flooded by the stream of time

Old ideas that I think I had – all gone

 

The tears in the rain, now lost forever

They glitter only by Tannhäuser Gate

The android sleeping, dreaming of the sheep

How Rutger made him real by nothing but the simple make believe?

 

    (Memory)

    Memory, oh so quiet

    (Memory)

    Where are you?

    (Memory)

    Where are you?

    (Memory)

 

Yet there are things that I don’t want to remember

Things that haunt me when I go to sleep

The ghosts of the past lurk right behind the curtain of reality

The curtain of reality    

 

    (Memory)

    Memory, oh so quiet

    (Memory)

    Where are you?

    (Memory)

    Where are you?

    (Memory)
