This is one I wrote back in 1986:


WE ARE NOT ALONE
Out of the midnight sky​
Which is blacker than​
A black jewel of high quality,​
Comes a piercing, piercing cry​
Caught in its sonority,​
A needle-piercing cry.​
Out of thin nowhere,​
Not described or known​
Except by the wind blown​
With an uncanny force,​
Out of a pitiless depth​
Comes a sound of high remorse.​
Imagine the black of emptiness,​
Think of nothing​
But this vacant black,​
Somehow swarming, stretching,​
Covering your thoughts,​
Nullifying, emptying, dead​
Black, back to the black​
And you will hear, constantly,​
The thin-voiced scream,​
The urgency, the power​
Of its tiny stream​
Scratching a line of light​
Through your dream.​

Who's next!!??
My song(lyric)s might be channelled from elsewhere high but I do not consciously remember to have received them in dreams. Yet sometimes I think it is 'given' to me, like the music too.

Since I write and produce Metal most would then want to believe it is rather nightmares in my case :p , but it is not true, I do / did not have nightmares for many years. :)

Love to hear some of your lyrics, can they be understood without the music, in this case?

Yes, they are in my usually bad ... :-)) ... English but I take my artistic/poetic liberty with English anyway (not my native tongue as you know) or with language in general, as I did even with German lyrics/poems I wrote (about 4 years ago I produced a German poetry book about metaphysical topics, also had a German lyrics song project with a different style of music, but for the time being I shelved it).
However, I also intentionally use a lot of old-fashioned and 'strange' terms anyway as part of the 'concept' and the artistic persona. I'm a strange guy after all and so I have to create strange art. ;)
Speaking of strange ... As strange as it might seem, I still want to separate any forum persona (like this ava/nick) from my artistic persona that is why I do not publicly link/connect it. I might share in the future though when I change my mind about it, which might or might not happen (or give links to the lyrics site via pm then). <:)

@Sinera , I am curious. Please pm me.
Will do when I'm ready, as said, I need to wait a little. Also momentarily finishing and changing a few concepts next to finalising my 2nd album, next to sending out demos to record labels, I'm a hopeless dreamer but who knows if the manifesting works against all odds. Keep ya' posted. :cool:

I'm quite proud of myself - I was able to translate a Christmas letter to me (German to English) from my daughter's German grandmother. The only word I didn't get was segensreiche - full of blessing - but we have a dictionary for that.
