When I look at the world of today,

I feel like an alien,

sent to observe,

sent to collect information,

mostly information of what not to do in order to live a beautiful life,

that´s what I´ve found out so far.

So now I´m thinking that the time has come to get back home again,

most urgent,

but somehow I´ve forgotten how, and I´ve not

found someone from my species yet,

in order to help me getting out of this mess.

So I feel alone.

I feel trapped,

locked up,



Let me quote Robbie Williams:

"God gave me the sunshine,

then showed me my lifeline,

I was told it was all mine........

but now I´m feeling like it´s fucking me!

Did Jesus really die for me,

then Jesus really tried for me."

When I look at the world of today,

recognizing all the Bullshit,

I come to realize that the base of our existence right now is


Bullshit is the glue that keeps this world together.

So when Robbie sings that:

"Jesus didn´t die for you,

What are you on?"

He´s right,

he´s goddamn right.

What are you on?
