The curch-bells and the razor-blades

A rainy day, she's alone in her room
Drowned by the pale light of the moon
She's starring at the scarves on her wrist
Where do I come from and where will I go ?
Is there anything on the other side?
She closes the curtains and turns off the light

Schimmernde Rasierklingen
Flüstern ihr
Verlockende Dinge zu
Sie wispern
Sieh nur,
Wie schön wir funkeln!
Wir ritzen deine Haut
Ohne dass du etwas davon spürst
Wir lieben dich!
Komm mit uns !

She watches herself in a clouded mirror
She hopes it won't hurt too much
Everything seems to be so sharp and clear
Is this life real or is it just a dream ?
An intermediate station on the way to eternity
The water's warm and cosy to her skin

Kühle Kacheln glänzen dunkel
Im trüben Licht der Lampe
Die Rasierklingen sind ganz nah
Du bist so süß
Unter deinen schwarzen Haarstränen
Hab keine Angst
Wenn du dich auf die Reise begibst
Wir sind bei dir
Wir streicheln zärtlich deinen Puls
Und führen dich in eine Welt
Ohne Tränen
Wir lieben dich!
Komm mit uns!
Wir lieben dich!
Komm jetzt!

And she feels the sound
Of the mighty curch-bells
Ignore the deceiving razor-blades
They are slaves of the Evil One
Do you really think
Your mission is done in this world?
You're so young
And there are many thing you haven't seen yet

Many experiences
You still have not made !
If you leave us now
You'll never come back
There's no return
No return!

Hey little girl, do you believe in god?
Do you believe in the material world?
Do you believe in anything at all?
Do you believe in everlasting love?
Do you believe in the stars above?
Do you believe in anything at all?

Und das Wässer färbt sich rot

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
