lyrics

Eve was poisoned, Pierre was shot
Predestined to be soulmates
Invisibly (as) ghosts
Premature violent deaths
Back to life, second chance
The plays are made.
THE CHIPS / ARE DOWN
Powerless to help
Brought back to life
Overthrow the Regency?
The plays / are made
THE CHIPS / ARE DOWN / DOWN!

End the resistance
Both distracted, Pierre unbound
Stop the slaughter of his friends.
No revolution.
But sacrificing their love.

By talking to the dead
By fighting for their souls
They lose what they love – a sacrifice!
By talking to the dead
By fighting for their souls
The dreams of second chance – failed to pass
By talking to the dead
By fighting for their souls
The dreams of second chance – crushed at last.

from Vlad Smash! (Touredition), released March 14, 2020
Auf das (Dreh-)Buch “Das Spiel ist aus” bin ich rein zufällig gestoßen. Ich latschte durch die Stadt und dachte darüber nach, was für einen Text ich zu diesem Song schreiben könnte. Da sah ich eine Kiste mit Büchern, die jemand verschenkt hat, darunter eben das von Jean-Paul Sartre. Mitgenommen, durchgelesen und beim Lesen sofort gedacht, dass diese Handlung, die in einem imaginären faschistischen Staat spielt, so philosophisch, schrecklich, schön und grausam zugleich ist, dass sie zu VRHN passen könnte.
