Test screen

“Ich kann mich gar nicht entscheiden
Ist alles so schön bunt hier
Ich glotz TV (sie glotzt TV)
Ich glotz TV (sie glotzt TV)”

(Nina Hagen in TV-Glotzer)

A freezing petrol station in the snow

“Which is the sound of the land

Full of the same wind
That is blowing the same bare place

For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.”

(W. Stevens in The snow man)
Schleiden (D)

The virility of war

“Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the big bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks.”

(Bob Dylan in Masters of war)
Eben-Emael (B)

From the theatre of killing

From the theatre of killing

"Had he and I but met
By some old ancient inn,
We should have sat us down to wet 
Right many a nipperkin!

But ranged as infantry,
And staring face to face,
I shot at him as he at me,
And killed him in his place."

(Th. Hardy from Time's Laughingstocks and Other Verses)
Eben-Emael (B)

But the better roads are waiting …

But the better roads are waiting

“Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
I shall walk

The trail is dusty
And my road it might be rough
But the better roads are waiting
And boys it ain’t far off.”

(Bob Dylan in Paths of victory)
Eben-Emael (B)
