Meinhard (Mock)Turtle Liedtext

On and on and even further on

I’m chasing down a dream

Seems a thousand years have past,

looking for a thing to last

Reeling, writhing time is fleeting,

striking hours with my bones

All alone I’m crawling on,

all my confidence has gone

There I collapse, all my dreams bound to die

Tumbling down, I don’t know who am I

There I collapse, tell me what’s going on

Down to the ground, everything has gone wrong

Flipped on my back I withdraw in my shell

– Won’t someone please give me a hand?

Flipped on my back I withdraw in my shell

– This kind of inertia sure feels like hell

In ambition and destruction

of my mind I fade away

Swaying in derision praying,

uglyfied I drift astray

Black and cold my pity soul

I hide inside myself and cry

Drawling seeking some salvation

all the world feels like a lie

There I collapse and my soul has dropped dead

I’m breaking down there is nothing ahead

There I collapse, just a shell as I fall

Down to myself, I feel nothing at all

Flipped on my back I withdraw in my shell

– Won’t someone please give me a hand?

Flipped on my back I withdraw in my shell

– This kind of inertia sure feels like hell
