How Joyous The Man

lyrics

“The mind is like an umbrella - it functions best when opened.”
“I’m worth more dead than alive. Don’t cry for me after I’m gone; cry for me now.”
“I do not weep: I loathe tears, for they are a sign of slavery.”
“What use is there for a biography of myself? I’m just a movie actor.”
“The Great War was the greatest sexual catastrophe that has befallen civilised man.”

How joyous the man who fights for his domain.
Who leaps from the trench to conquer new terrain.
How joyous the man who takes the day and claims it as his own.

“I will either be famous or infamous.”
“No one can be good for long if goodness is not in demand.”
“My brain bled dreadful visions. I could see nothing but a thousand skeletons jigging in a row.”
“There is only good music and bad music.”
“It's an old ploy of the bourgeoisie. They keep a standing ‘art’ to defend their collapsing culture.”

How joyous the man who fights for his domain.
Who shoots for the stars and won't stop taking aim.
How joyous the man who‘ll seize the day and claim it as his own.

How joyous the man who fights for his domain.
Who leaps from the trench to conquer new terrain.
How joyous the man who’ll seize the day and claim it as his own.

“Don’t be afraid of death so much as an inadequate life.”
“Whoever stays for any length of time in Berlin
hardly knows in the end where he actually came from.”
