11:52 pm - Alexx ist mein Lieblingstexter
Alexx Wesselsky is my favorite poet at the moment.

The lyrics to his songs have a gift for expressing moods perfectly, both with his former band, Megaherz, as well as his current group, Eisbrecher.

He's baby bear's porridge as a lyricist, in my book. Perfekt. Perfekt. Perfekt.

Below are the lyrics to one of his songs that perfectly captures my mood at the moment. It also happens to be one of my favorite songs -- maybe THE favorite one of all the ones that he has written. You can listen to him singing it here.


Zeit

Stunde um Stunde
Tag um Tag
Minute um Minute
Schlag um Schlag

Halt den Zeiger an
er soll sich nicht mehr drehen
Ich marschiere nicht mehr
Nein ich bleib einfach stehen
Ich hab keine Lust mehr
mit den anderen
im Gleichschritt zu gehen

Das Leben zieht vorbei
Wieder stirbt ein Tag
Mit dreißig bin ich tot
Mit siebzig lieg ich dann im Grab

Was kann ich noch tun
Das kann doch noch nicht alles sein
Ich will endlich wissen wofür es sich lohnt
auf dieser gottverdammten Welt zu sein
auf dieser gott-, gottverdammten Welt zu sein

Zeit - Ich brauche nur ein bisschen Zeit
Zeit zu verstehen
Zeit - Gib mir nur ein bisschen Zeit
wieder klar zu sehen

Zeit - Ich brauche nur ein bisschen Zeit
Zeit zu verstehen
Zeit - Gib mir nur ein bisschen Zeit
wieder klar zu sehen
Zeit - Oh, gib mir Zeit
wieder aufzustehen




Time

Hour by hour
Day by day
Minute by minute
Beat by beat

Stop the clock-hand
it should not turn anymore
I won't march anymore
No, I'll just stay standing
I have no more desire
to go in step
with the others

Life moves by
Again another day dies
With thirty I'll be dead
With seventy I'll lie in my grave

What else can I do
That just can't be everything yet
I want to finally know why it's worth it
to be on this goddamned world
to be on this god-, goddamned world

Time - I need a little time
Time to understand
Time - Give me a little time
to see clearly again

Time - I need a little time
Time to understand
Time - Give me a little time
to see clearly again
Time - Oh, give me time
to get up again
