Als Kind bin ich in die Bruce Lee-Filme gerannt,
Jetzt habe ich das Geld um im KungFu-Verein zu sein.
Als Kind hab' ich mir oft die Finger verbrannt,
und jetzt habe ich das Geld mich mit Asbest zu bekleiden.

In meinem Flur steht Cpt. Kirk,
gleich neben Monsterfußpantoffeln.
Unter einem Comicberg,
liegt die Formel für Wasserstoff.

Ellenlange Diskussionen, ob denn so Erwachsene wohnen,
werden sich bei mir nicht lohnen. Ich bitt' euch mich zu verschonen.
Denn jetzt bin ich endlich groß und die Hölle bricht los.
Gut, daß ich erwachsen bin.
Gut, daß ich erwachsen bin.

Als Kind da wollt' ich immer so wie Batman sein,
am Tage Playboy und nachts ein Rächer.
Jetzt treten mir die Playmates glatt die Türe ein,
mein lieber Freund und Kupferstecher.

Ich fahr' ein Batmobil, schau nur noch Pornofilme,
das tut mir nicht weiter weh.
Ich bau' 'ne Bombe und sprenge Kiel,
danach esse ich Fischstäbchen mit Kartoffelpüree.

Ja, jetzt habe ich gut Lachen, kann jetzt all die Sachen machen,
all die schönen mannigfachen. Ich laß' es jetzt ordentlich krachen.
Denn jetzt bin ich endlich groß und die Hölle bricht los.
Gut, daß ich erwachsen bin.
Gut, daß ich erwachsen bin.

Spielen Erwachsene Gitarrensolos? Nö.

Langeweile liegt mir fern, dafür danke ich dem Herrn.
Oh Gott, Du bist grandios.
Ich mußte grad' mal 18 werden seitdem ist die Hölle los.

Gut, daß ich erwachsen bin. (wdh.)

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.

No Surprises
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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
