Der Geist ist willig, aber das Fleisch ist schwach
Ich werde alles tun damit ich es gefügig mach

Der Geist ist willig, aber das Fleisch ist schwach
Ich werde alles tun damit ich es gefügig mach
Ich halt mich tagelang wach um in der Bibel zu lesen
Wenn ich mein Heil gefunden hab dann hab ich Zeit zum genesen

Verwesen will ich nicht nicht sterben hab Gnade mit mir Gott
Erhalt mich meinen Erben denn die Toten können nicht für dich werben
Nicht jetzt und nicht hier lieber leid ich alle Qualen
Denn es zehrt mich nach dir ich bin dir treu ergeben
Wer will seine Stimme gegen mich heben
Wer geht ins Gericht mit mir
Gott entreiß mich meinen Feinden denn es zieht mich zu dir

Der Geist ist willig, aber das Fleisch ist schwach
Ich werde alles tun damit ich es gefügig mach
Ich halt mich tagelang wach um in der Bibel zu lesen
Wenn ich mein Heil gefunden hab dann hab ich Zeit zum genesen

Verwesen will ich nicht nicht sterben hab Gnade mit mir Gott
Erhalt mich meinen Erben denn die Toten können nicht für dich werben
Nicht jetzt und nicht hier lieber leid ich alle Qualen
Denn es zehrt mich nach dir ich bin dir treu ergeben
Wer will seine Stimme gegen mich heben
Wer geht ins Gericht mit mir
Gott entreiß' mich meinen Feinden denn es zieht mich zu dir

Dein Weg ist mein Weg,
Deswegen lass nicht zu, dass sie siegen
Ich will am Ende vor dir stehen und nicht am Ende vor dir liegen
Schwiegen auch alle, ich nahm es ernsthaft wahr,
Das ganz in meiner Nähe mein Schöpfer lag,
Der mir zu Leibe rückte,
Dessen Hand schwer auf mich drückte,
Mich verrückte und so wurde ich verrückt
Es ging näher zu ihm, da brannte mein Fleisch
Und ich wollte fliehen, doch wie konnt' ich fliehen
Ich musste knien,
Er prüfte meine Nieren und mein Herz,
Schnitt mich tief in meiner Seele mit einem Messer aus Erz
Schmerz drang tief in mich ein
Und ich selbst wollte mich dem Untergang weihen
Angesichts der Wahrheit mir nichts mehr verzeihen
Doch er riss mich aus dem Reich der Toten
Er entriss mich meinen roten Blutlachen
Und den Fängen der Despoten
Und den Fängen der Despoten

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
