Bill Ward: Powder On The Moon

*

So many issues in one day

And nighttime,

A chance of life

Can creep away,

Devour me.

*

Every time an angel dips its wing,

Breaks the hearts and

Steeples where we sing.

Nothing is for sure

Except we sleep.

Something's gonna touch you,

And you'll weep.

*

Self absorbed I bathe in my imagination,

I hear applause for all my thoughts,

I'm salvation.

Indeed

It's lonely

When your whole world

Keeps falling in on you.

*

Now I'll deny this,

And I'll defy this,

I want the whole damn world to like me.

I seek attention,

But never mention,

I want the whole damn whole world to like me.

I crave reaction

For every action,

I want the whole damn world to like me,

Even when I'm powder on the moon.

*

Indeed

It's lonely

When your whole world keeps falling in on you.

*

Now I don't like it

And I survive it,

I want the whole damn world to like me.

I need affection

And not infection,

I want the whole damn world to like me.

I'm often drawn to

My own delinquence,

I want the whole damn world to like me,

Even when I'm powder on the moon.

*

I want to hide out,

I get so needy,

I want to make the whole world like me.

I want to stay up,

Control the outcome,

I want to make the whole world like me.

Don't want to grow up,

Don't want to fade out,

Just want the whole damn world to like me,

Even when I'm powder on the moon.

*

I hear me,

Being who I once feared I could be.

*

Now I'll deny this,

I'll defy this,

I want the whole damn world to like me,

Even when I'm powder on the moon.

*

I've got that ego,

The one that kills ya,

I want the whole damn world to like me,

Even when I'm powder on the moon.

*

Yeah, I'm productive

And self-destructive,

I want the whole damn world to like me,

Even when I'm powder on the moon.

*

I get offended,

But never mend it,

I want the whole damn world to like me,

Even when I'm powder on the moon.

*

Reveal me not my heart.

Wie findet ihr meinen Songtext (meinung)?

Bitte spart euch die Kommentare wegen der Kommasetzung! Ich schreibe mein Texte immer so auf wie ich sie ausspreche würde bz setzte immer ein komma vor, wenn man eine Kurze Pause macht bevor man das andere ausspricht! Also egal please keine Kommentare. Nur meinung.

Why i can’t be the one that you never let go, so i’ll stay forever by your side. One day, one love, one world, you and me. Tell me that you also think so and i just say 

Mhhh mhhhh mhhh, i was to blind for your love and to realise, that you didn’t want the same, as i do. You’ll never look at me now, and i frozed. Please take me to a place, that you want to be with me, but you aren’t with me. Because you are there with another one.

My love, my words, i never lied to you. I never did thing that i regret it. So we never we never, get another chance, oh, to love us forever in this world and i just say 

Mhhh mhhhh mhhh, i was to blind for your love and to realise, that you didn’t want the same, as i do. You’ll never look at me now, and i frozed. Please take me to a place, that you want to be with me, but you aren’t with me. Because you are there with another one.

And you broke, broke my heart so much, and i can’t believeeeeeeee, that you didn’t feel the same, as i do.  My loveeee was so real. But you didn’t feel the same, as i do. Please give me back, all the love, i’ve gave ya the year.

Worum geht es in diesem Lied (Casey's Last Ride)?

Hey (:

Ich höre dieses Lied jetzt schon seit einiger Zeit, aber die Bedeutung erschließt sich mir irgendwie nie ganz.

Das sind die Lyrics:

Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down
The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below
Following their footsteps through the neon-darkened corridors
Of silent desperation, never speakin' to a soul
The poison air he's breathin' has the dirty smell of dying
'Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain
But Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
Of the clickin' of the turnstiles and the rattle of his chains

“Oh!” she said, “Casey, it's been so long since I've seen you!”
“Here” she said, “just a kiss to make a body smile!”
“See” she said, “I've put on new stockings just to please you!”
“Lord!” she said, “Casey, can you only stay a while?”

Casey leaves the under-ground and stops inside the Golden Crown
For something wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bone
Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men
Who reach for any thing they can to keep from goin' home
Standin' in the corner Casey drinks his pint of bitter
Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by
Then he stumbles as he's leaving and he wonders if the reason
Is the beer that's in his belly, or the tear that's in his eye

"Oh!" she said, "I suppose you seldom think about me"
"Now" she said, "now that you've a fam'ly of your own"
"Still" she said, "it's so blessed good to feel your body!"
"Lord!" she said "Casey it's a shame to be alone!"

Also, ich verstehe, dass die erste Strophe beschreibt, wie Casey mit der U-Bahn fährt (bzw. fahren will, er ist ja noch nicht eingestiegen) und dass er in der zweiten den Untergrund verlässt und ein Bier trinken geht. Er scheint eine Frau und Kinder zu haben, aber nicht nach Hause zu wollen, und dann geht er wieder zu der Prostituierten, zu der er früher gegangen ist, die sich allein fühlt…? (vllt. auch Geliebte, hört sich für mich aber eher nach Prostituierter an)

Ich meine … okay? Aber warum besteht die erste Strophe aus einer absurd langen Beschreibung über eine U-Bahn-Station? Warum ist es Casey's LAST Ride? Und warum will er nicht nach Hause, jetzt, wo er eine eigene Familie hat? Was ist so tragisch an seinem Leben, dass er trinken muss und eine "Träne in seinem Auge" hat?

Liebe Grüße (:
