Inside Out

I'm within the dark chamber
Red and glowing secret amber
Kills the conscience
Keeps the danger

I'm inside myself now
Ciao. Goodbye my pal
To all of you I must kowtow.

I bow my head low
Painfully and slow
My story I'll show.

My mom said in childhood
"You will reap what you sow
When you're ready you'll go"
But in boyhood I didn't know

Sorrow, angst and paine
Will I always be the same?
Father, can Thou hear'st my name?
I'm a man no one can tame,
But a human, too, feels guilt
And shame...

Mother, do you know where I am?
You did ever whisper, You can, You can
But m'am, how could you say so?
Why yes, instead of no or never?
Why did you all think I was clever?

No, never.

Through labor and work
I found something in me.
Oh, I did.
No saviour, no salvation
Many things I had to see,
Oh, El Cid!

Where are you knight?
In where today willst thou fight?
You who bravely fought
You who furiously sought
I who only watched
I didn't lift a finger.
I who deathly laid and linger'd.

Oh, starry sky
Brilliant, opalescent night
I'll pray one day
I might
Become that glorious
