Du sagst, Du willst Frieden,
und nie wieder Krieg.
Nie mehr schlechtes Wetter,
nur noch gute Musik.

Du sagst, daß die Menschen,
sich lieb haben sollen,
und Du willst Arbeit für alle,
die arbeiten wollen.

Wenn das mal alles so einfach wär',
dann gäb' es keine Probleme mehr.
Die Polizei wäre arbeitslos,
das wäre wirklich ganz groß.

Wenn das mal alles so einfach wär',
dann hätt' ich drei Sorgen weniger.
Dann wär' die Welt voller Zuversicht,
aber so einfach ist es nicht.

Hui.

Du bist gegen Armut und gegen Gewalt,
und gegen Rassismus in jeder Gestalt.
Du willst Liebe für alle und Brot für die Welt,
und einen Politiker, der das, was er verspricht, auch wirklich hält.

Wenn das mal alles so einfach wär',
dann gäb' es keine Probleme mehr.
Die Polizei könnt' nach Hause gehen,
dann muß man die nicht mehr anzünden.

Wenn das mal alles so einfach wär',
dann hätt' ich drei Sorgen weniger.
Dann wär' die Welt voller Zuversicht,
ja, aber so einfach ist es leider nicht.

Nein, nein

    Another great song about these kiddie-punk-idiots who want to change the world without a clue how to do it. Only shouting slogans won't do it, right?

    i absolutely agree with you, beatsteak, it's lot harder to actually change something than it is to blame people for doing something wrong. Es gibt nur einen Gott.... BELAFARINROD

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."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Page
Ed Sheeran
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.
