Traüme (Monday Monday Song #35)

image

In the sky of my soul I hear an eagle scream.
Its cry echoes off the mountains of my dreams
and down below there is a trembling in a distant ravine.

In the distance shines the fires of humanity
and the grinding gears of the machines that torment me.
I look down at my hands and they are bloody.

Share your pain with another.
Touch the heart of each other.

I am haunted in my mind by distant memories,
silenced by the fear of unending grief,
yet in the quiet of the night I hear my spirit breathe.

Whispers of truth,
shouts of ecstasy,
weeping of wounds,
groans of agony.
I am afraid of the fire in me.

Share your pain with another.
Touch the heart of each other.

November 30, 1991

Note: Traüme is the German command – Dream!
