helter-skelter of a life searching for the ever open door no sooner I think I'm at the top when I find myself back on the floor a long climb up life's steep hill the world's problems on my back a fall from grace slows the pace I'm at the bottom of the stack my life of snakes and ladders treading carefully as I go surviving the ladder of success is more tricky than you'd know one foot wrong then you're gone it should come as no surprise the snakes waiting in the wings plotting your demise snakes pretend to be your friend so be careful who you trust don't be surprised who told the lies even though XX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX X XXXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XX X XXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX

Opfer der Zeit

By Roland Köhler


Es handelt sich hierbei um eine Art deutsche Version der Songs "Victims" und "Time" von Culture Club. Dieser Text entstand auf der Rückfahrt von Schladming im Oktober 2012, wo mir in einem kleinen Tal der Tod begegnet war. Oben war es schön warm, in diesem Tal schlagartig eiskalt und frostig und ich war überzeugt den Tod zu spüren. Dort kam mir die Melodie zu "Victims" in den Sinn und schrie verlangend nach einem deutschen Text. In der darauffolgenden Nacht kam eine Freundin von mir nach einem Herzanfall ins Krankenhaus. Sie hat es überlebt, ich habe ihr diesen Song gewidmet.
