Du stehst Dir selbst im Weg und glaubst auch noch daran,
daß sich ohne Dein Zutun nichts ändern kann.
Du planst an Deiner Zukunft, die Dir nicht gehört,
und merkst nicht, wie Du Dir alles selbst zerstörst.

Du bist sehr schnell mit Worten, die Du nicht verstehst,
und bist erst zufrieden, tust Du jemand weh.
Deine eigenen Füße siehst Du im Gedränge nicht,
und glaubst noch, daß Du fest auf der Erde stehst.

Im Leistungskurs Leben wird Dir nicht beigebracht,
daß Du alles, was sie Dir geben, später doppelt bezahlst. (2x)

Von Deiner eigenen Größe beist Du sehr überzeugt,
vergebens wartest Du, daß man sich vor Dir verbeugt.
Was Du so schnell entscheidest wirst Du noch mal bereuen.
Über Deine Fehler wird sich noch jemand freuen.

So lebst Du schon seit Jahren in Deiner eigenen Welt.
Du bist der Einzige, dem sie noch gefällt.
Dann liegst Du in den Trümmern Deiner eigenen Jugend.
Deine Schrammen sagen Dir: "Du hast Dich selbst betrogen!".

Im Leistungskurs Leben wird Dir nicht beigebracht,
daß Du alles, was sie Dir geben, später doppelt bezahlst. (2x)

Mit 25 Jahren da bist Du ausgebrannt -
keiner Deiner Freunde gibt Dir noch die Hand.
Die wenigen, die Dir die Stange halten,
kannst Du ruhig vergessen, die sind wie ihre Alten.

Anders als die Anderen - so willst Du sein
wartest auf kein Urteil, wirfst den ersten Stein.

Perlen vor die Säue, die kein Wort verstehen.
Geh noch mal zur Schule, denn da gehörst Du hin.

Im Leistungskurs Leben wird Dir nicht beigebracht,
daß Du alles, was sie Dir geben, später doppelt bezahlst. (2x)

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
