Tief in einer Welt
wo Gefühle nichtig sind
bin ich eingesperrt
Vor Haß schon völlig blind

Die Tränen sind die einzigen Zeugen
das ich Selbst noch existier´
Nahe dem letzten Schritt
Doch etwas hält mich hier

Überall ist Bitterkeit
Verzweiflung, und der Tod
Lügen - totes Fleisch
werden unser täglich Brot

Denn, überall ist Bitterkeit
Verzweiflung und der Tod
Lügen, totes Fleisch
werden unser täglich Brot

Ich sehe mich im Spiegel
doch erkenne Ich mich nicht
So entstellt vom Treiben hier
Eine Fratze - mein Gesicht

Das Leben in der anderen Welt
ist mir schon völlig fremd
Wie der Mond am Abendhimmel
Ich kann es mir nicht erklären

Überall ist Bitterkeit
Verzweiflung und der Tod
Lügen - totes Fleisch
werden unser täglich Brot

Denn - überall ist Bitterkeit
Verzweiflung, und der Tod
Lügen, totes Fleisch
werden unser täglich Brot

Du bist der einzige Grund
Der mir hilft - hier zu bestehen
Wärst Du nicht hier, tief bei mir
Würd´ den letzten Schritt Ich gehen

Die Liebe zu Dir hält mich
Und gibt mir neue Kraft
Um hier zu überleben
Bald ist es geschafft

Überall ist Bitterkeit
Verzweiflung und der Tod
Lügen, totes Fleisch
Werden unser täglich Brot

Denn - überall ist Bitterkeit
Verzweiflung und der Tod
Lügen - totes Fleisch
werden unser täglich Brot (3mal)

    Die Band schreibt wirklich manchmal so, wie es in meinem Inneren aussieht.. obwohl ich diesen Text doch sehr depri finde. Dennoch singt Sonja Kraushofer da mal wieder genial...

    "Bitterness"

    Deep in a world Where emotions fade away I'm locked up Already fully blinded by hate

    Life in another world Is already so far away Like the moon in the twilight sky I can't even explain it

    The tears are the only evidence That I myself still even exist About to take my last step But... something keeps me here

    You're the only reason That helps me to live here If you weren't here beside me I'd have already taken my last step

    Everything is bitterness Desperation and death Blood and rotting meat Will become our daily bread

    My love of you stops me And gives me renewed power To outlive this place Soon it'll be done

    I see myself in the mirror I still don't recognise myself Driven to deformity A grimace - my face.

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"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.
