„cut down“ in Songtexten
When Babylon fell and Zerubbabel took charge; Within seventy years I was saved.
The Agagite, son of Hammedatha, plotted to cut down the lofty fir;
But it proved a snare to him, and his insolence was silenced.
Than sound of this verse, I had to go,
But now I'm here again, but everything is lost,
They cut down the chestnut, where I once kissed you,
Limes don't smell, there is no old violin,
Fire up my soul pieces, intensify it more and more
I won't bow, I won't yield, I won't run away from my identity
Cut down the nonsense defensive policy and dance celebrating life
It's ok to make a splash, let's burn our spirits
One must take care that weeds don't spread
I only believe what I can feel
My violence is just a silent scream to be cut down!
First came the Monday demo, then (Frauke) Petry, and then salvation
I have knack for work, I have giant's strength/vim
I will pull a wagon full of air-bricks even without wheels
I already cut down all bushes, now I'm carrying grit
I don't care if my neighbours call me "psycho"
