schweren herzens ausgesetzt
tief in dessen traum verletzt
doch im mittelpunkt zum licht
zeigt sich ein gesicht
wie ein gemaltes ebenbild
der schönheit gütig, sanft und mild
nur auf den ersten blick normal
dem torso fehlt das genital

herr, der du mich liebst
bitte vergib
mir sünder die schuld
meiner ungeduld
herr, der du mich siehst
bitte verzeih
aus wunden meiner haut
fließt engelsstaub


unerkannt und heimatlos
vertrieben aus dem mutterschoß
im kalten schein der nacht
von ängsten bewacht
vergessend, wem die stunde schlägt
wen diese welt zu grunde trägt
nur noch ein opfer dieser zeit
willkommen in der wirklichkeit

herr, der du mich liebst
bitte vergib
mir sünder die schuld
meiner ungeduld
herr, der du mich siehst
bitte verzeih
aus wunden meiner haut
fließt engelsstaub


herr, der du mich fliehst
der verzeiht und vergibt
laß mich nach Haus
hol´ mich hier raus

herr, der du mich liebst
bitte vergib
mir sünder die schuld
meiner ungeduld
herr, der du mich siehst
bitte verzeih
aus wunden meiner haut
fließt engelsstaub

    (I appear to be the only one that posts here anyway...)

    Heavy hearts have stopped injured deep in its dream yet in the midpoint to the light a face appears as a painted likeness the beauty kind, soft and mild only normal at the first glance the torso is missing the genital

    Lord, you who loves me please give to me sinner the guilt my impatience Lord, you who sees me please forgive out of my wounded skin flows angeldust

    Lord, you who escapes me the giving and forgiveness let me go home get me out of here"

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
