Return

(oehler/goedken)

Never knew these days would end
Never knew that times would bend
To the wishes in someone else
To the forces outside myself

I know this empty chair
I see this faded room
But nothing is the same
And I feel empty

You ask me to return
Return to these shores
Return to these halls
Through open doors

I want to run
I want to climb
Don’t want these forms
That we’ve designed

Don’t want the temple
Oh, don’t want its wealth
I want to return
Return to myself

Never trusted anything
Never knew that words could bring
Down the high walls of what you felt
Crush the forces inside myself

I fear this empty room
I know this common place
But I am not the one
I’m vacant inside

You ask me to return
Relive what is lost
Pull up all my roots
From the icy frost

I want to play
In the destroyed
Don’t want these roles
That we’ve employed

Don’t want the city

Don’t want the town
I want to be reborn
And turn myself around

Never knew that times would bend
Never knew these nights could end
End the sirens of distant bells
Through these forces outside myself

I see the hidden games
I know this fallen space
But nothing is the same
And I feel empty

You ask me to return
Return to before
Return to these halls
Through open doors

[EO] I liked the remix that Ryan Coseboom (of Stripmall Architecture and Halou) so much that I ended up incorporating elements of it into the live mix.
