I am a man on some stairs

GabiMilli_a5835 GabiMilli_a5836

The world is full of sequels
I am a man on some stairs
What is up there? Downthere nothing
Downthere what is it? Upthere nothing

I talk to the others who were
Both upthere and downthere and I don’t contradict them
I myself say about the places
Where I’ve been there’s nothing

My neighbour weeds crows
My lady-neighbour weeds make-up
I am a man on some stairs
And a dog sneaking through fences

Once, many times
Cause what can these fences be
Other than former fallen stairs
Other than former fallen stairs

Neighbour, sir, stranger
I don’t understand what you have against me
I know, we have the stairs in common
But I pass by here so rarely
The doorman himself can testify
That I have very low ambitions

From time to time I come home
Why do you get upset when I come?
My sole seldom presses
The pedals with an extraneous step

My neighbour weeds crows
My lady-neighbour weeds make-up
I’ve just got up from fences
And groaning in leaps
I am a man on some stairs

If you want me to be ballad
And because I don’t have a star
I accept, I crave, I dream to fall
An angry raven at my death

And now I beg you, smile
In the world full of sequels
You, the ones who weed make-up and crows
Dark and washed-out
Let me be on the stairs
