Why (The dove and the raven)

 

Walking down, downtown,

Dell, don’t you see how, I’m going down,

The sky is blue, all over blue,

I don’t know what I’m bumping into.

 

City seems quiet, as it can be,

Sounds of a riot echo in me,

Some days are like another,

But these days are hard to suffer.

 

Why? Why?

Do I see the dove in the raven?

Why? Why?

Should we feel Love in Heaven?

 

Walking down, downtown,

Don’t you see, I’m going down,

I make a stop at The Amsterdam coffee shop,

Where you can get a special ginger pop…

I’ve a small chat ‘bout the weather,

Kind of talking with no matter,

Two thousand one in September,

We’re on Tuesday I remember.

 

Alarm bells and a smoke smell,

When the angels tumble in hell,

White dust covers the screens,

My mind goes mad for what it means.

 

Walking down, downtown,

Don’t you see, I’m going down,

Days of despair far from peace,

Should we call HIM for some relief?
