Andreas Dunkel: The House

Zeitzünder/Lyrik heute
Andreas Dunkel

The House

I've built this house
With a smile
Thinking you could
Watch me do it

And if these arms
Don't lose their strength
Might stand it firmly
For a while

But neither do I own it
Nor will you ever stay inside

So I step back
Behind blunt sights
Of disenchanted visions

What I do own
Is all the void
Around the
Massive building

From where I turn
Aside the smile
Let silence
Last towards it

And if I'll ever
Build a new house
Would it be alike?

Oh, neither will you miss me
Nor could you even breathe inside

So I pass by
Down the main road
And leave ourselves behind
