Das Wort zum Jahresende ...

... überlassen wir Bruce Springsteen (live concert in 1985):

Intro (gesprochen): We grew up in the sixties, we grew up with war on TV every night. A war that your friends were involved in. I want to do this song tonight for all the young people out there. If you are in your teens... cause I remember a lot of my friends were 17 or 18 and we didn't have much of a chance to think about how we felt about a lot of things, and ... next time they're gonna be looking at you and you're gonna need a lot of information, to know what you're gonna do .. because in 1985, blind faith in your leaders or in anything will get you killed.
Cause what I'm talking about here is:

War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War is something that I despise
For it means destruction of innocent lives
For it means tears in thousands of mothers' eyes
When their sons go out to fight to give their lives

War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War

It's nothing but a heartbreaker
War
Friend only to the undertaker
War is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of war blows my mind
Handed down from generation to generation
Induction destruction
Who wants to die

War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War has shattered many young men's dreams
Made them disabled bitter and mean
Life is too precious to be fighting warseach day
War can't give life it can only take it away
WarIt's nothing but a heartbreakerWar
Friend only to the undertaker
Peace love and understanding
There must be some place for these things today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord there's gotta be a better way
That's better than

War
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War

Dem ist nichts hinzuzufügen. Ausser: Tragt euch Sorge.
