“I just need some place where I can lay my head.
“Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?”
He just grinned and shook my hand, and “No!”, was all he said.”
(Bob Dylan in The weight)
“We embraced, there in the parking lot
of the ordinary.
How could I know your arms were arguing last things?”
(M. Kallet in Saying Goodbye)
“The pride of the peacock is the glory of God.
The lust of the goat is the bounty of God.
The wrath of the lion is the wisdom of God.
The nakedness of woman is the work of God.”
(William Blake in Proverbs of Hell)
Hab’ ich gewacht
Und aufgeblickt zum Himmel;
Kein Stern vom Sterngewimmel
Hat mir gelacht
(Fr. Rückert in Um Mitternacht)
“I’m searching for phrases to sing your praises
I need to tell someone
It’s soon after midnight and my day has just begun”
(Bob Dylan in Soon after midnight)
