"Ja ich will dich verstehen
doch am liebsten wuerd ich untergehen
in dem Meer deiner Gefuehle
setz ich leise meine Segel und schlaf ein"
Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone
"You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you"
Jack Johnson - If I Could
"A brand new baby was born yesterday
Just in time
Papa cried, baby cried
Said "Your tears are like mine"
I heard some words
From a friend on the phone
That didn't sound so good
The doctor gave him two weeks to live
I'd give him more if I could"
Ryan Adams - When The Stars Go Blue
"Where do you go when you're lonely
Where do you go when you're blue
Where do you go when you're lonely
I'll follow you
When the stars go blue"

"No, I'm not colorblind
I know the world is black and white
Try to keep an open mind
But I just can't sleep on this tonight"

"I saw it written and I saw it say
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get you all
It's a pink moon
Hey, it's a pink moon"
Adam Green - Jessica
"Tomorrow gets closer
a purple bulldozer
is calling you on the phone
your lovelife precedes you
your son in law feeds you
injections of cortisone"

"Yes indeed I'm alone again
and here comes emptiness crashing in
it's either love or hate
I can't find in between
cause I've been with witches
and I have been with a queen"
Bob Dylan - Tangled Up in Blue
"Early one mornin’ the sun was shinin’,
I was layin’ in bed
Wond’rin’ if she’d changed at all
If her hair was still red.
Her folks they said our lives together
Sure was gonna be rough
They never did like mama’s homemade dress
Papa’s bankbook wasn’t big enough."
Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues
"When I was just a baby, my mama told me, "Son,
Always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns."
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry."
Bright Eyes - Lua
"When everything is lonely I can be my own best friend
I'll get a coffee and the paper, have my own conversations
with the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection
The mask I polish in the evening by the morning looks like shit"
Andrew Bird - Oh No
"In the salsify mains
of what was thoughtful and sad
all the calcified arhythmatists
were doing the math.
And it would take a calculated
blow to the head to
blind the eyes of all the harmless
Bill Callahan - Eid Ma Clack Shaw
"I dreamed it was a dream that you were gone
I woke up feeling so ripped by reality
Love is the king of the beasts
And when it gets hungry it must kill to eat
Love is the king of the beasts
A lion walking down city streets"
Money Mark - Everyday
"Everyday I die a little.
Everyday I live a lot."
Element of Crime - Michaela Sagt

Und am Ende wollen alle immer irgendwas von ihr
Sie hilft ja gerne, wo sie kann, doch irgendwann ist's auch mal gut
Michaela sagt, man muss wissen, was man tut"
Bob Dylan - Masters of War
"Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks."
Gisbert zu Knyphausen - Verschwende deine Zeit
"Verschwende deine Zeit
du wirst schon sehen wohin das führt
dieser ganze Geiz ist sowieso nicht wirklich geil
da leben ist ein Kopfschmerz
und es wird zeit das du ihn spürst
hab keine Angst er ist sehr schnell wieder vorbei"
Jack Johnson - Cookie Jar
"It wasn't me", says the boy with the gun
"Sure I pulled the trigger but it needed to be done
Cause life's been killing me ever since it begun
You cant blame me cause I'm too young"
"You can't blame me sure the killer was my son
But I didn't teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
It's the killing on this TV screen
You cant blame me its those images he seen"
M. Ward - Fisher of Men
"He tied a feather to the hook for to get you to look
And by the time you know what took you, you already took
He's got a line in the water, he's a fisher of men"
The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony
"Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life.
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to money then you die."
