zeitlos verborgen
der anfang ward gemacht
ich wurde neu geboren
als stern in klarer nacht
mir fehlen die worte
für deine wirklichkeit
vergessen die orte
von meiner einsamkeit

zwischen gezeiten
liegt eine neue welt
und öffnet ihre weiten
dem auge nur entstellt
im licht von tausend farben
entspringt nun neuer mut
doch dieser regenbogen
schmilzt in deiner feuersglut

fern unserer sonne
leuchtet ein stern
so nah und doch so fern
heraus aus dem dunkel
bring ihn zum funkeln
für dich hier unten


zügellos begehren
was niemand begreift
das unwirklich schöne
beflügelt meinen geist
zu ständigem suchen
nach wegen zu dir
geschürt durch ein drängen
in den tiefen von mir

scheinbar verlassen
und doch nicht ganz allein
grenzen verblassen
in deinem edlen schein
die gnade zu leben
in deiner fantasie
lenkt mein bestreben
nach neuer harmonie

zwischen den gezeiten
liegt eine neue welt
und öffnet ihre weiten
dem auge nur entstellt
im licht von tausend farben
entspringt nun neuer mut
doch dieser regenbogen
schmilzt in deiner feuersglut

fern unserer sonne
leuchtet ein stern
so nah und doch so fern
heraus aus dem dunkel
bring ihn zum funkeln
für dich hier unten

    Crappy translation time! (I am so bored...)

    "Timeless[ly] concealed the beginning was made I was newly born as a star in a clear night to/for me the words are missing for your reality [forget to locate?] of my loneliness

    Between tides lies a new world and opens far the eye only distorts in the light of a thousand colors new courage [spills?] now yet this rainbow melts in your firey glow

    Far from our sun a star illuminates so close and yet so far out from the darkness bring to it that twinkle for you here below

    Unrestrained desire what no one grasps that unreal beauty inspires my ghost to permenant[ly] look after because of you stirred up through a press in the deep before me

    Apparently [leave?] and yet not completely alone boundaries pale in your noble [certificate?] to live the grace in your fantasy directs my endevor before a new harmony"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
