Together with Susanne Hirschmann (voice and piano) we made this song. We had a lot of fun writing this lyrics 😀
me: one morning, waking up late (dozing away?) and you wouldn’t believe what my alarm clock did, it went: “Snoozing is 80 cents per minute”
went downstairs to prepare breakfast,
saw a post-it note on the fridge, declaring :
Breakfast stops at 10, just got your life together b….
Maybe then a shower? But as I enter the bathroom,
it asks me for my reservation, submitted three weeks ago?
And I beg and plead to let me in.
As a first show of kindness today, it makes an exception.
Just this one time, you know next time, better apply for it in time.
While Im still euphorically thankful, and the day is looking up,
standing in the shower, I notice something odd.
Cold water, what the hell?
I’m afraid that somethings broken, but before I try to even ask,
the shower lets me know: “The form for hot water has to be filled out and submitted 2 days before your self`cleaning appointment”
When I glance at the toilet, consider it in passing,
I notice fingerprint and iris scanner and I don’t even ask.
I stumble straight into the hallway, dragging on my coat,
and I fumble with my wallet as I’m heading for the door.
Tough another tiny voice, clearing its throat, stops me in my tracks and kindly tells me:
“So, you should really improve your credit score, otherwise I cannot approve this shopping tour”
And the longer I stay
And the harder I try
The more I think that maybe I’m the problem this time.
I didn’t fill out the reservation this time
Or gave it to the wrong person
I didn’t check their schedules in advance
And now my whole life doesn’t make sense
