Who´s problem is that now? (Poem)

Stop writing and just talk to me
Your kindness just makes things worse
Didn´t mean to show you all of me
My dreams made up of hurts
Don´t want to play monopoly
On the conscience of love
With rules that make no sense
Even if they are at work
Don´t send me photographs of you with the economy
You look so good together but I can still see your heart
Minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?

I can hear the flushing of the toilet
Dead man walking down the hallway
Disguised as an undertaker to sell you the carpet
Feels like an earthquake as you slam the door
On the pride of some new rich man you proudly denied
He gave you everything you asked for silently
You know you´ll end up on dry land
Didn´t believe one word he had to say
But still you found time to watch the rain and covet
Instead of asking him for more
Told him loving me would spill and just spoil it
Say anything you want to, I just don´t understand
I have to keep on walking even against the law
Following the past cause I know it will last
Minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?

The courtroom is for liars, sleeping with false confidence
All my fathers try to sentence me to forty years of common sense
Venus lies to entrap me, ujust judges faces freeze disguising democracy
Rearranging stolen faces all along the bar
Clinging to conventions outdated from afar
The recess of the living whispers your innocence
Dictating what has gathered in between coincidence
Lets the prosecution plead diplomacy
Betraying Judas and the jury
Shooting down all our possibilities
Left to the busy street and excuses of normality
With minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?

When tomorrow is still today, and I’m torn each way
Reading the signs as the road unwinds
Towards a hermit by the river
Gazing into worn out faces to deliver
Them safely to you without enticing you to steal
Scripted scenes given to coincidence to hand out the parts
I washed your feet and came out when it was time to conceal
You said you needed more time to investigate the scene of the crime
Drifting into cover so incomplete, evicting me from the start
Sleeping by your gate to keep me running late
All your enemies seemed to have made the cast
My head on anything but straight
My feet know one of them will get the last dance
But still you can´t turn me to hate
Minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?

Who am I in the morning where I
Must now smile to force a lasting cry
High water covering just the sky.
To buy my hopes slide on as if to fly
Into the face of the lasting taste
Of all those who dare to love to try
To lead me to where they lie
Where you and I were not supposed to die.
I stayed with you when neither of us had a cent
Crossed that river just to keep you company
You said you trusted me to pay the rent
What more was there to see?
Minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?

I knew too much and lost your disgust
Not dismissing the places we rearranged
Happening upon the footsteps
Of audiences that you thought were strange
Harbouring my contentment
Inside our resentment
Are you still doing what you must?
Without you everything just feels like a game
The cards the hermit dealt
Are locked in tight, out of insight
Waiting for your kiss to change
I´m wondering if you still think of us
Falling asleep on that greyhound bus
Slumbering into everything we felt.
Minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?

Your confusion left me like a thief in the night somewhere somehow
Footage cut off where you doubt the sight of our reality lies
At the fork of your infatuation the sign said try before you buy
And you followed me in parallel
But like the moon can´t escape the tide
My need for you leaves me no place to hide
Even if I deny you, even if I betray you
I´ll look for you when the chosen few
Ring those ancient bells
Just forget the pawns you´ve lost
They were just using you
Recall the thorns you crossed
Their beauty still bleeds for you
Minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?

If you ever leave the farm and pass me by
Pick me up by the side of the road again
I´ll be disarmed, I got here somehow
On the road of excess
Where your joy and I fell
Footstepped by the winds of success
Prevailing without contest
Demands needing to sell
Wherever east meets west
Weeds conquering tangled up regrets
Dignity waiting in jest
At the palace of hell
Minds changing gears
Out of control on the highway of passing fears
The fuel of love tightly rationed now
Do you really want to see everything and forget the rest?
Something happening that you can´t hold onto now
What made me think you´d ever settle for less
I left you in control but who´s problem is that now?
