Clung to the bridge

Clung to the bridge

“Walkin’ on the footbridge high above the clouds
Listenin’ to your yesterday, didn’t make a sound
And dazzled by your sweet lips and touchin’ on me
Here comes trouble, can’t you see?”

(The cars in Go away)
Flemalle (B)

Broken industries

Broken industries

“Broken bottles, broken plates
Broken switches, broken gates
Broken dishes, broken parts
Streets are filled with broken hearts
Broken words never meant to be spoken
Everything is broken.”

(Bob Dylan in Everything is broken)

Restlandschaft

Restlandschaft

"Wir teilen ein in Ort und Raum,
In Licht und Schein, in Kraut und Baum,
Sind Euler und gewinnen Preise;
Doch noch im Grabe sagen Weise:
Das Leben ist ein Traum."

(J. Gleim in Das Leben ist ein Traum ...)
Grâce-Hollogne (B)

Does the steel rails ever hum?

Does the steel rails ever hum?

“I’m listenin’ to the steel rails hum
Got both eyes tight shut
Just sitting here trying to keep the hunger from
Creeping it’s way into my gut.”

(Bob Dylan in Workingman’s blues #2)
Liège (B)

Silence over the battlefield

Silence over the battlefield

"The helmet now a hive for bees becomes,
And hilts of swords may serve for spiders' looms;
Sharp pikes may make
Teeth for a rake;
And the keen blade, th'arch enemy of life,
Shall be degraded to a pruning knife."

(R. Knevet in The helmet now a hive ...)
