Fool’s Paradise

last night around the time
when the queues were nowhere near fine
and the streets were filled with red and blue lights
it was nettlesome
i wouldn’t call it bright

when the air smelled of dripping dreams
thanks to the uniform and diffident queens
waiting in lines eagerly to pass the man
just to make memories
they themselves won’t be a fan

to do things tonight
that can’t be done tomorrow day
to tell a story that’s alright
and leave behind the horrors of grey

but don’t let all this
make a fool out of you

this town’s a different town today
this town’s a different town to what it was last night
you couldn’t have done that on a sunday
of course not

now don’t let all that pretty face
give you butterflies around your base

that girl’s a different girl today
i said, that girl’s a different girl to what you kissed last night
you couldn’t have done that on a sunday
of course not

but i can’t say the same for those presumptuous non-settling monkey suits
i just can’t

last night what we talked about
it made so much sense
but now the haze has ascended
it doesn’t make any sense anymore


A little girl was all she was,
Without any knowledge of cheats and flaws,
She lived in a world of her own,
Believing all good things she had known…

She lived in a place in all her dreams,
Not near, far away, it usually seemed,
Back then when dreams used to be reality,
It was in her mind with much more clarity…

She dreamt of that place day and night,
Always going there whenever she’d a fight,
All happiness there made her alive,
Yes, she was in her paradise…

As she grew, her place felt farther,
Stuck with problems, always growing larger,
Never ending roads in front to walk,
Just fear with her to share and talk…

No truths, no promises, no faithful ties,
Much more she felt in the world full of lies,
It wasn’t her dreams where the sun rules,
Here just the money and more money, fools…

Her endless dreams faded away,
Of the place for which she heartily pray,
Feeling sadness here, she weeps and cries,
Maybe she lost her paradise…

As she lost the smile on her face,
She looked at mirror with such a disgrace,
Raising her arm she was forced to fight,
Breaking the mirror she felt calm and light…

In blooded pieces she saw herself broken down,
The new was gone and the old was found,
A ray of hope dawned upon her eyes,
She searched for the truths from the pack of lies…

A sense of happiness found her again,
Everything was washed with the showers of rain,
A clear image of chilhood dreams gleamed in her eyes,
Yes, she was in her paradise…
