Wit's end (English) — When someone is at their wit's end they are out of ideas, solutions, or possible plans, emotional stability. They are then puzzled, or perplexed, and/or upset.
"Wit's end" in lyrics
In school they asked constanly if everything's ok with me
if they realised, (if they) knew the truth
But I believe that what I am doing makes sens
because sometimes it's better to be at wit's end than to go mad
Jenny, my name is JennyEdyta Bartosiewicz - Jenny
Sometimes I doubt the path I chose
Sometimes my dreams feel all on hold
There's no doubt that this will make me strong
Because it's the hardest thing I've ever done
Despite this cruel worldHalou - Honeythief
Exhausted faces line up on Touyoko's overhead rail tracks.
Speaking for myself, I am beaten failure of weekday luckily or unluckily.
I see and image my dad's youth in my friend who I have not heard a word for a while.
I wonder if the black clouds that cover riverbed darken my future.
The days of writing songs that I lived with loneliness was at my wit’s end.amazarashi - Rain man
But then he got his latinum.[fn]The Latinum is a certificate that shows you had 5 years of Latin lessons in school. It is needed for some fields of study on universities (e.g. for theology or classical literature).[/fn]
His life took a nasty turn.
Because of that in school he was
completely at his Latin's end.[fn](This is the most difficult thing to translate ever) The saying 'I am at my wit's end' is literally told 'I am at my end with my Latin' in German, and that's the entire joke of this song.[/fn]
He was the best in Latin.Wise Guys - Latin
The place is boiling tonight, who's the king ?
Right away, walls are reserved like parking spots.
But who can understand, when they have everything,
That a man at his wit's end strikes hard, fuelled by hatred,
And that we are not born and programmed to make some fuss.IAM - Tomorrow Is Far Away
[fn]This song was inspired by Onelia Mazzi’s poem, written in the dialect of Modena, Emilia-Romagna.[/fn]
There are people who have black skin; they have to live with that skin.
There are people who have white skin, and to darken it they go to the seaside.
There are people who live the good life, and always feel like joking.
And people who go to rack and ruin, and who are at wit’s end.
There are people who have stuff and money, and their bellies are full every day.
Dinosaurs came and wrecked the city.
I ambushed with my psychic powers.
The Pleistocene epoch - a long winter…
I'm weak against mornings…. I yawned.
Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, What the hell is this “Pacific”…?
Return my stolen memories!
