“Singe, Seele, Gott zum Preise,
Der auf solche weise Weise
Alle Welt so herrlich schmückt.
Der uns durchs Gehör erquickt,
Der uns durchs Gesicht entzückt, …”

“Front door shut, back door too,
Blinds pulled down, what’ cha gonna do?
Gotta step it up and go-Yeah, go.”

But these to tell what’s true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden”

The tower where there never justle a bell

"When the bells justle in the tower
The hollow night amid,
Then on my tongue the taste is sour
Of all I ever did."

“Lazy Sunday afternoon
I’ve got no mind to worry?
Close my eyes and drift away.”
