General mobilization
All subjects to be deconditioned!

Fall into line!
Attention! unpredictable, forward march!

New wonders, new horrors
Tornado for the obligations to convention
For the convolutions
In the skull, cyclone
As headcleaner!
Wire brushes to the vermin trash!

Clotted thoughs, frozen now melt
With headcleaner!

Behind us the universe
With us inhumanity
Against universal humanity
Any means is right
And proper only the right to the mean average

On parade the psychiatric unit
Over-the-top ascetics up front
Pumped up
With headcleaner!

Next in line the wild rank and file
Just one thing in their heads:

One half of my dreams is shaved bald
The first battering on the door
The first one from official quarters
With questions
A matchstick caught in my throat
No phrase
Through my throat
Which would not
Start a blaze
Don't wait
Get a close shave escape
Those were the dreams.

A song, one, two, three:

'cos nothing has been done that can be done
And nothing has been sung that can be sung
And nothing has been said so go get out and play the game
It's easy

Nothing has been named that can't be named
And no one has been saved that should have been saved
And nothing you can do but forget(? ) yourself this time
It's easy

'cos nothing has been known that can't be known
And nothing has been seen that ain't been shown
Nowhere you can be and that isn't where you're meant to be
It's easy

'all you need is headcleaner!'

The right to attacks of controlled frenzy -
A scout patrol with cosmic iniquity
Takes it into captivity.
Discipline is soaked
In headcleaner!
Last wind machine before the battle!
This is where the storm unit sweeps out
With hurricane
Deep pore cleansing - never seen again!
Between grey cells and in all the furrows
Where hidden fungus always burrows
They eliminate
It is too late
Bombarded with salutes and mowed down
Straight with headcleaner!
Tabula rasa!
Tabula rasa!
Tabula rasa!

This here is in flames, that there has
Completely collapsed.

Heavy and thick ash rain.

Dissolved in smoke and fog.

It's getting light, not a new day
But an approaching fire; stay at a distance:
Darkness will return.

The sun is rising, gloomy eclipse of the sun.

Everything is coated with ash
Like snow.

We, however, who now know the danger and
Who are aware of it, even we cannot yet make
Up our minds...

    nothing has been made that can`t be made and no one has been saved, that should have been saved and nothing you can do but forget yourself this time it`s easy I love when this part of the song rolls around. those lyrics can be seen as either super depressing or curiously relieving.

    1933. Room 101. Cerebral antiseptic. 1984. 1946 Jahr Null. The architecture has been defeated. The will to assimilnihilate enemy tactics and techniques has triumphed. Durchmenschdenken ist der neue weltverbesserwisseranschauung.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.
