Lieber Staat - ich fühle mich so rundum wohl in Dir.
Lieber Staat - es weht ein Wind von Freiheit hier.
Du erklärst mir immer wieder was erlaubt ist und was nicht,
Lenkst mein Leben jeden Tag und bist furchtbar fürsorglich.
Ach, was wär' ich ohne Dich?

Danke, daß Du mich regierst!
Danke, daß Du mich regierst!
Und das Du mich nicht ignorierst!

Lieber Staat - gut, daß Du weißt was richtig für mich ist.
Lieber Staat - schön, daß Du so ehrlich bist.
Du willst immer nur mein Bestes und Du gibst mir zu verstehen,
wenn mir irgendwas nicht passt, steht mir frei hier wegzugehen!

Danke, das Du mich regierst!
Womit hab ich das verdient?
Ich rutsche vor Dir auf die Knie!

Lieber Staat - jetzt mal echt, Du bist absolut gerecht.
Wer was anderes sagt, macht Dich nur schlecht.
Lieber Staat - eigentlich wär' ich gar nichts ohne Dich.
Ich schrob Dir dieses Lied, Du weißt bescheid,
als Zeichen meiner Dankbarkeit.

Lieber Staat - ich weiß vor Dir sind alle Menschen gleich.
Lieber Staat - ganz egal ob arm ob reich.
Manche sagen zwar Du wärest auf dem rechten Auge blind,
wobei die, die das behaupten alle Terroristen sind.
Das lernt man bei uns schon als Kind.

Danke, daß Du mich regierst!
Danke, daß Du mich regierst!
Und in Serbien einmarschierst!

Lieber Staat - Du bist hart, aber nur wenn es was nützt,
zum Beispiel wenn Du uns vor Ausländern beschützt.
Lieber Staat - da sind ganz klar Arbeitsplätze in Gefahr.
Es gibt viel zu viel Ausland auf der Welt,
und die wollen eh nur unser Geld.

Und bevor ich es vergesse,
eine kleine Sache nur:
Ich danke Dir für Deine Leitkultur.

Lieber Staat - ich hab's kapiert. Es ist einfach herrlich hier.
Die Massen stehen jubelnd hinter Dir.
Lieber Staat - ohne Mist, bleib genauso wie Du bist.
Ich tätowier' mir Deine Flagge ins Gesicht.
Ich bin so schrecklich stolz auf Dich!

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.

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."

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.
