10 MOCKING DREAM

I can feel the wind blow in my face
Feel the earth beneath my feet
I can read the signs along the road
Meet my neighbour on the street
I work like a machine if it has to be
But I’m dizzy in my head
Is it really me who does all this?
Or is it someone other than me instead?

Spread your wings, little mockingbird
Take me to a higher place
Sing your song on top of the trees
Make me feel a bit of your grace
I look for you in every magnolia
In beeches and birches too
Though I know you won’t get me out of no jam
I wanna dream a mocking dream with you

Little bird sitting on top of a tree
Take away my fear
Look down at the world and make me feel
How small I must appear

Will she open the door when I drop by?
Will she pour me another cup?
Or has she recognized my mastery
In the art of fucking things up
I’m lying in my room, it’s getting dark
My thoughts give me the creeps
I’d rather stay on the surface next time
Sometimes I get a little too deep
