The Jester’s Way Home

Everyone needs someone to follow
Everyone needs someone to know
Everytime we go on our way
But sometimes we can’t find the home

Lullabies are all the same but noone hears them anyway
A drunken got lost down the lane while seeking for the dreamworld
He used to stare right at the moon, has no reason to call around
As a lonely wolf he always moves back instead for forward

Long ago he played the fool, a mortifying, empty role
Even in the freezing cold he made the people joyful
Slowly he was left alone as they didn’t care about the show
As he watched the afterglow the world’s become so cruel

Yesterday was meant to be his long-awaited freedom
Destiny is far beyond the moonlight horizon
The jester in his solitude is still wide awake
Coz the booze keeps his dreams far away

He didn’t forget how to smile but doesn’t even want to try
Left behind a warning sign he sings a hymn for lost souls
Carried out this wicked game and hanging out without his name
Drops a tear and whispers: ’Hey, there’s nothing left to lose’

Yesterday was meant to be his long-awaited freedom
Destiny is far beyond the moonlight horizon
The jester in his solitude is still wide awake
Coz the booze keeps his dreams
Coz the booze keeps his dreams
Coz the booze keeps his dreams far away
