Every break-up leaves its own traces - and in some cases even scars. "The Lineman's Call" describes the story of a break-up in which one wonders what actually became of all the love, trust and affection both partners once felt for each other. How and when could it happen that the person you once loved so sincerely turned into an evil spirit haunting you like a dark shadow from which you are desperately trying to escape?



Dealing the cards, rolling the dice
I’ve asked you once and I won’t ask twice
Afraid of the lineman’s call

Let’s wait for the rain to fall
and I walk down these hallways
at least I’ve tried
A camouflage of your mind

And at the break of day I cried
tryin’ to leave everything behind
We just stood there, put through the grind
no afterglow, no heart for you

See myself walking to the marge of the river of no return
trying to hold on to a reflection of foregone days on its surface
swaying to and fro between dark shadows and rays of light
entwining myself around an echo - drowning, drowning in darkness

It is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons even death may die
The bed of a jade lagoon seemed like a soothing place to me
Forever sleeping in its emerald cave
forever resting, forever dreaming

A peaceful game turned into war
a stab through the heart and blood on the floor
there’ll be no lineman’s call

Reinforcements where out of bound
so all I tried was to hold our ground
a ground that was all burned down

And at the break of day I cried
tryin’ to leave everything behind
We just stood there, put through the grind

But when the clouds of smoke dispersed
I just stood up and I prayed and cursed
Returning to my lagoon all blue
no afterglow, no heart for you
