"Kreuzberg" as written by and Kele/lissack Okereke....
There is a wall that runs right through me
Just like the city, I will never be joined
What is this love? Why can I never hold it?
Did it really run out in the strangers' bedrooms?

I
I have decided
At twenty-five
Something must change

Saturday night in East Berlin
We took the U-Bahn to the East Side Gallery
I was sure I'd found love with this one lying with me
Crying again in the old bahnhof

I
I have decided
At twenty-five
That something must change

After sex
The bitter taste
Been fooled again
The search continues

    General CommentI think it's something similar to what uncommon valor stated. It is about failed relationships, obviously. Like, he is searching for love, and believing he's found it, only to find out that, when it ends, it was nothing but infatuation. It's a very deep song. Definitely a tune you could listen to while trying to get over a failed relationship.

    And, if you follow what he's saying, he's not talking about giving up. But, rather continuing his search to grasp a hold of true love and not the poppy media crap that isn't and never will be real. It's just, he plans to go about it more sensibly.

    Plus, it's rather intriguing that this song precedes "I Still Remember" on the track list.
