Why Am I Here?Mature

Dark undulating figures
Green laser stars
Loud noise loud noise loud noise
Midnight Madness Makes Me More Manic
Pulse with the German song that has no real beat
All animals in an urban jungle
Ask the absurd question - Why am I here?
 
Lean over and speak imperceptible words
什么?
Oh, you’re not Chinese? Well just as well.
Norwegian? You don’t say.
Buy me a drink? Anything to escape.
Tell me a story, of lands far away
Of family, of tragedy, of your sunny school days
 
Kiss me before the stroke of bright dawn
Say goodbye with squinted eyes, not used to the sun
Until we meet again downtown, bright lights, big city
Until we meet again over hot cumbersome shrimp
Until we meet again lost in crowded night markets
Until we meet again listening to jazz in the warm summer rain
Until we meet again…
 
And this is where we part
To our respective corners of the world
Nothing has changed
Midnight Madness Makes Me More Manic
Pulse with the German song that has no real beat
All animals in an urban jungle
Ask the absurd question - Why am I here?

The End
