King Ogilvy

(Boo Devi Darling)

The King might have riches, finery and battlefield triumphs, but at what cost? When the love of your life died on that battlefield, what is the value of everything gained? The loneliness of power and the loss of enjoyment when possession is infused with guilt, these are the themes suggested by this elegant and beautifully poetic piece.

King Ogilvy the First sits alone in his ballroom As a gentle breeze is tinkling the crystal chandeliers Looking out across the terrace to the moonlight Captured by the playing of the water fountain drops Spraying beds of roses as they sugar scent the night All alone, at last a chance To sit and think and be alone So alone, magnificent King Ogilvy Since the day he stole the throne Finest china dishes dashed upon the marble tiles Gilded lacy edges and a pattern of wild flowers Softest velvet cushions tasseled round with gold Slashed and hurled against the tapestries of hunting hounds Destruction and frustration burst a thousand times From vintage champagne vessels spinning silent On the empty ballroom floor All alone, at last a chance To XXX XXX XXXXX XXX XX XXX XXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX

Glücksspiel

By Philipp Rieg


Dieses Lied vergleicht das Gelingen oder Misslingen einer Beziehung mit den Chancen beim Pokern, also einem Glücksspiel. Das lyrische Ich zerbricht an der Gelassenheit seines Gegenübers in Anbetracht eines nahenden Beziehungsendes. Es glaubt nicht an ein Schicksal, sondern durchweg, dass sie selbst die Karten in der Hand hatten. Es beschreibt seinen Zustand als ein Gefühl der Gefangenheit, des Unfreiseins ob der Unmöglichkeit, Geschehenes im Nachhinein zu verändern.
