Nur noch der Berg,
Dann ist es geschafft
Und dann, und dann: freie Sicht auf das Meer
Und das muss es bitte aber auch wert sein
Dann die große, böse Schwester der Hoffnung

Ihre Waffe das Schwert, ihr Name Enttäuschung
Mit einfachen klaren Sätzen
Die einmal kurz klarstellen
Anders als gedacht, mein Schatz

Und da geht was du weißt
Und hier kommt was du ahnst
Und das wie es wirklich ist
Gegen dort wo du mal warst

Und alles was du kennst gegen alles was du glaubst
Der Zustand den man wankend kennt
Bevor man ihm vertraut
Und der Mist den du hier spürst
So jenseits von schade
Sind die letzten 3 Jahre

Also was ist:
Zu erkennen, dass man glücklich war ist leicht
Na also was wird:
Zu erkennen, dass man glücklich ist ist Kunst
Nichts überstürzen, die Nacht drüber schlafen
Einmal kurz sammeln im Heimathafen
Mit miesem Gefühl, der Weg ist das Ziel
Und du: auf dem Ozean
Anders als gedacht, mein Schatz

Und da geht was du weißt
Und hier kommt was du ahnst
Und das wie es wirklich ist
Gegen dort wo du mal warst

Und alles was du kennst gegen alles was du glaubst
Der Zustand den man wankend kennt
Bevor man ihm vertraut
Und der Mist den du hier spürst
So jenseits von schade
Sind die letzten 3 Jahre

Und alles was du kennst gegen alles was du glaubst
Und alles was du weisst gegen alles was du glaubst

Und alles was du kennst gegen alles was du glaubst
Der Zustand den man wankend kennt
Bevor man ihm vertraut
Und der Mist den du hier spürst
So jenseits von schade
Sind die letzten 3 Jahre

    "Zu erkennen, dass man glücklich war ist leicht Zu erkennen, dass man glücklich ist ist Kunst"

    für mich eines der schönsten Kettcar-Zitate... Spiegelt meiner Meinung nach auch sehr gut das ganze Lied wieder. Nichts von dem, was du je erlebt hast, ist schade - vielleicht auch in diesem Fall direkt auf eine Beziehung bezogen. Aber das schöne ist, dass man auch dieses Lied für sich selbst so interpretieren kann, wie es gerade passt... Und im Moment passt dieses einfach perfekt!

    also die ersten zeilen sind genial, wo er eine beziehung, in der es schwierigkeiten gibt und von der man glaubt, dass alles besser wird vergleicht mit einer langen fahrt in der urlaub.

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."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

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.
