lyrics

We Are Instrument

We are instrument
Someone is playing on us
A long distant melody
In the space between
Harmony & pain
We is unbalanced
All ends up in pharmacy
With the wrong medicine
Served by a longhaired maiden queen

We stay in a hurly-burly daydream
On a sunny afternoon in june
Like a sheet of burning armenian paper
Lost by the eastern wind
Like frozen thoughts in gentle rain

We are nobody
We are everybody
We are all & everything
We are nothing

We are instrument
Someone is playing on us
A long distant melody
In the space between
Harmony & pain
We is unbalanced
All ends up in psychiatry
With a strong medicine
Given by a longhaired maiden queen

Finally
We are
Melody

Wir sind Instrumente

Wir sind Instrumente
Jemand spielt auf uns
Eine ferne Melodie
Unbalanciert zwischen
Schmerz & Harmonie
Kann es enden
In der irren Anstalt
Hinter verschlossenen Türen
Mit der falschen Medizin
Serviert von einer blonden Königin


Wir sind Instrumente
Jemand spielt auf uns
Eine ferne Melodie
Seltsam vertraut
Doch behalten
konntest du sie nie
Immer wieder Töne
In deinem Kopf
Du könntest schwören
Sie kämen aus dir
Aber es sind wohl nur brennende
Fetzen von armenischem Papier

Rex Joswig
