it's rubbish... there are plenty of ways to spread epic stories about some famous assholes, who climbed tall mountains. As you said once: "It's the obvious" "A mountain remains a mountain." Words on your grave are very futile now You tried, but you’ve died.... as many other asshole has. Cuckoos and wolves are silent now Remains of an old, odd song about you and some mermaids who tried to climb snowflakes claiming to be God.
You let all your memories down The roaring you – A mess of childish pranks… A trembling heart – Full of booze… Happy New Year…

A second chance, we will not get a second chance, these should be.the beautiful years, then why are they so full of tears? And where's the beauty here? All I see is anger and fault. All i live on is dillusion and suspending my belief and what I'm seeing and reading and duly injecting But I can take all of this I can take all this for you just for life in your eyes and for love on your face And I stake my claim on 40years of prayer and I stake my claim on 40years of curses and for all these years bewildered And we are the lucky ones, I'm told there are no reason for my tears, for no one has actually died here and you knew a man who knew a man And we are the lucky ones, the numbers are on our side and therefore the case is closed you shall not merit a second thought And you've been every which where and you are ever so happy to share and boast and never ask just what exactly is going on And you saw us once we looked ok from 30yds so you need not ever ask just what exactly is going on And I dreamt of the old lady who lived here long ago and she told me that the timing was not right and Not to worry, for she'd lives through far far worse and everything would be all right

Do you remember, this day in Pusan. I guess you were looking for someone. Do you remember, the sun was shining, and you, and you, were crying. I remember, this day in Pusan. I guess, we were looking for no one. I remember , the sun was shining, You still remain the girl from nowhere. You still remain the girl from nowhere. The sun was shining, and you, were crying

17f Vevey, Switzerland

Sous le pseudonyme de 17f se cache Fred Merk, musicien suisse discret.
On décrit souvent sa musique comme poétique et cinématographique, faisant fi des modes et des convenances. Souvent sombre et intimiste, l'univers du Suisse est unique tant par sa créativité que par son abnégation à tracer un chemin pas toujours accessible, mais totalement authentique ... more
