Carnival is over here and ev´ry then
times have been as easy, as fragile light can be
the only task exhausting was to pass over some tea.
Hipping hopping through dark hours day by day
dreams in sugar-lumps were said to get you bright and gay
sugared pills left you locked up in some kind of lasting grey.
Carnival is over here and now and ev´ry then.
with blinded eyes and narrowed mind
you are bound to voices of them hissing hollow-hearted kind.
now, that carnival is over, birth yourself from ashes
do not panic when your rainbow ghost-light crashes
nothing but carnival is over just let your soul cheer up again!
