An Echo from Château d'If


Pressure and time
Are partners in crime......
In shattering hopes
And breaking dreams....
They can knock you down
From your personal
Heaven of comfort
Back on the earth.....
They can force you
To wake up....
And face each day.....
Embrace the reality......
And taste the bitterness
Of truth.....
The sweetness of a lie...
Feel the harshness of
Mortals.....
And the tender side
In a demon...
Feel the sadness of life....
And the joy of death....
The darkness in light...

They will make you
Kneel before the coldness
Of love.....
And witness the beauty
In hate.....
You will no more
Understand the
Difference between
A mosquito
And a butterfly....
Or a swan and a crow.....
I mean who cares....
You won't feel a thing.....
Say good bye to tears.....
And no more nightmares.....
You'll enjoy night time
More than ever...
Its intolerable calmness....
And deadly silence
Will be your lullaby......
Pressure and time..
Yes that’s all it takes
Slowly but steadily
They will take you ON.....

Along with time....
You will learn how to
Replace you cries
With smiles
And to cover your lies
With confidence....
Invent the logic
Called coincidence....
You will learn that the
Best place to hide
Is right in front of the eyes.....
Slowly but surely...
You’ll understand the
Importance of denial....
The beauty of the word
NO....
You’ll learn to trust
Your hands
Than your brain....
Pressure and time..
Yes that’s all it takes
Slowly but steadily
They will take you HOME….......
