Yage – One way ticket des Lebens ( One way ticket of life ) Lyrics 9 years ago
German lyrics:

One way Ticket des Lebens
Macht die Selbstverwirklichung zum Ziel
Der Sinn ein Brunnen
Die Zeit der Weg
Die Wahrheit ist da, wo du gerade stehst
Die Spielregel heißt Realität
Jeder, der dies liest ist mittendrin
One way Ticket des Lebens
Macht die Selbstverwirklichung zum Ziel
One way Ticket des Lebens
Macht die Selbstverwirklichung zum Ziel
Jeder, der dies hört, ist mittendrin
One way Ticket des Lebens
Macht die Selbstverwirklichung zum Sinn?
Jeder, der das liest ist, ist mittendrin
Sinn!?

Yage – Die Flucht (the escape) Lyrics 9 years ago
German lyrics:

Warum ist es für euch noch nicht mal möglich euren Egoismus, eure Morde, eure Geldgier und eure Selbstzerstörung anzuzweifeln?
Mein Leben zu leben, mein eigenes Leben
Mit Blindheit seid ihr verdammt, nehmt aber nur mein Licht!
Ich hasse euch
Ich hasse euch dafür, dass ich vor euch und eurer Welt flüchten muss, um ein Leben zu leben, das nicht eure Hölle beinhaltet
Und ich schreie bewusst ihr!!

Mihai Edrisch – Espérer Lyrics 10 years ago
I feel too weak to look forward, to realize at least once what I forever wasted. Under the shadow, under my weaknesses, I force myself to imagine and invent light-ridden mornings made of hope and sweetness. Still I wish I could choose a new dawn and its simplicity, I wish I could calm down and walk, free at last of the millstone round my neck. But the longest journey starts with a single step and I’m afraid to take it. I run like a coward from this hand that would push me in the void of a consumed life, a hand that would send me, relieved, somewhere I’d like to be forever lied to.

automatically translated by some dude in Mihai Edrisch

The Number Twelve Looks Like You – Alright, I Admit... It Was A Whore House Lyrics 11 years ago
There's something about the title, I'd like to share with you. In Kurt Vonegut's Hocus Pocus there's a guy named Lyle Hooper who runs a place called the Black Cat Café. This is some sort of bar, but in the alley behind the Café there are a couple of vans with prostitute's working for Hooper. So the whole Black Cat Café is basically just a brothel or a cover-up for a brothel and everyone in town knows about it, but they all treat Hooper as if he was a decent and respectable citizen. And Hooper himself acts as if he is just that. Never admitting to anyone, not even to himself, that his place is actually what is considered by the larger amount of society something filthy and obscene.
So... at one point in the story there is a prison break with hundreds of convicts storming the city, shooting people and taking a lot of citizens hostage, among them Lyle Hooper. Unlike the rest of the town, the prisoners are perfectly aware of how Lyle Hooper earns the main amount of his income and when they refer to him, they always use the word 'pimp'. Although the prisoners threaten to kill Hooper, it's not the fear of death that bothers him the most, it's being called a 'pimp'. But when they finally decide to execute him, his last words, while he's brought outside to be shot in the yard, are: "OK, I admit it. It really was a whorehouse."

So... I thought this might be interesting, since it seems to me #12 got the song title from that novel. It's a really good book by the way, though not my favorite from Vonnegut.

Dead Moon – It's OK Lyrics 12 years ago
I found this on the internet, seems about right:

For in those reckless moments
When doubt is creeping in your head
Feeling like you've lost your youth
And the dreams you had are cold and dead
I can't reach you anymore
That's gonna take a different man
I can't protect you like before
You've slipped beyond my hands
But it's okay.......

I wish that I could light the path
That leads to a life of no mistakes
Hold you from the damned be done
That living out of safety seems to take
I remember still the child in you
As if only yesterday
It was easy to break through
I only had to kiss the pain
But it's okay.......

This is my chance, this is my life
And my opening hour
This is my choice, this is my voice
There may be no tomorrow
This is my plea, this is my need
This is my time for standing free
This is my step, this is my depth
In a world demanding of me
But is's okay.......

Okkervil River – Disfigured Cowboy Lyrics 12 years ago
I think this song was given to the 'Comes With A Smile' zine as a live version and became part of the included CD. This song apparently developed into Black Sheep Boy #4, which can be found on the Black Sheep Boy Appendix EP and has slightly different lyrics.

Fear Before – My (Fucking) Deer Hunter Lyrics 13 years ago
Yeah... they stole that artwork idea slightly from Radiohead's Kid A. Whatever, amazing record anyway. The bolded letters in the lyrics read "NOW YOUR WORDS ARE MINE" which kind of fits to the idea of this song being about the relationship between evolution and christianity.

Gregor Samsa – Young and Old Lyrics 13 years ago
No one commented on this amazing song??? What the fuck, the ending is just mind-blowing and so much better than almost anything.
However I think it's about losing someone and longing to see him/her back. And about remembering that someone and how the time just used to stand still when they were together. How it seemed that the world was just made for the two of them and like nothing could ever change that fact. And that makes it even more unbelievable that that someone seems now gone forever...

Beautiful sad song!
