burg 200

hinter den romantischen gemäuern
spürten sie wieder eine lebendigkeit
die man ihnen ausgetrieben hatte

jenseits der logik der algorithmen
suchten die digitalen eingeborenen
instinktiv nach dem unberechenbaren 

 

 

NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT ALL (Kieran Halpin)

I’ve been too long away from your loving,
Too long with my back to the wall.
I’ve been to some far-away places
With nothing to show for it all.

I’ve been to their sites and showcases.
I’ve been through their strong city halls
Men with black suits and no faces
And nothing to show for it all.

I’ve been too long away from this country,
Too long not heeding your call.
Now I’m home like some war-weary soldier
With nothing to show for it all.

I’ve taken the jibe and the jester.
I laughed at the joke through it all.
He said: “Get back to the place where you came from.
You’ve got nothing to give after all.”

I’ve been too long away from this country,
Too long not heeding your call.
Now I’m home like some war-weary soldier
With nothing to show for it all.

Breathe easy; there’s someone there waiting,
Someone who cares after all.
