Video Sundays

Daniel Kasman

Each body is injured, each soul is thirsty,

Restless glances, sorrowful hearts,

Is this the world or the dominion of senselessness?

What is this world, even if I get it?


Burn it, smoke away this world!

Move this world away from me!

It is yours, you nurture this world!

There's no sign of life,

It's just the power to charm.

I'm lying in the rain,

But I never wave bye-bye.

But I try, I try...
