    General CommentThis song is off of "Songs From the Labyrinth" and written by John Dowling.

    I am so sad, I would prefer to sleep.
    My heart is torn with sorrow.
    I’m tired, worn out and can’t handle this, so sleep—why don’t you take it instead.
    Let life be still in me.

    Come on, sleep.
    Just like death will make me forget, so will sleep—come and take this sadness away
    Because it’s driving me crazy
    So come on, sleep—if you don’t, I’ll die, so come or just forget it and never come

    General CommentThe siren, bright and beautiful today
    (These flights of mine that ever flew away …)
    Dare it now shatter with a drunken wing
    This hard, forgotten lake
    (This ice does cling!)

    When the child’s brow
    With torment flushing red
    Implores white dreams to shed their hazy veils
    Two sisters, tall and fair, approach his bed
    Whose fingers glint with silver-colored nails
    The bored rain god spills his irritation over
    Darkening the whole city with an icy shower

    Comes the charming evening
    Comes conspirator like on soft wolf tread

    The handsome knave of hearts and the queen of spades
    In cynical communion, review their defunct amours
    As they laugh and twirl
    Round the feet of a girl
    Like the spring

    His whole life, he had loved to read …

    General CommentKnife—you were no knife
    But only the blue
    Toppling
    I would hold the sky …

    While I keep silence?
    What word to I utter?

    Dogs wax furious on days like this
    Let us share things between us
    No hard feelings?
    I was longing for a pee
    I’d left a damp spot where I sat
    Whereby the queen went under the awnings
    At the edge of the theater
    Where they are now installing a trap door!
    Struggling
    Not wanting to be lost
    Just like a miracle he puts his hand out to hers
    And just like a miracle, she smiles at him
    Just like a miracle

    [paraphrased poetry]
