TrumpI would have never though, that any inauguration day would beat the sadness I felt when Ronald and George took office. But its here and its time to pay my tribute. Arthuro burried his pain his own way.

Mine is the music of others:
This two songs are much older then the 2016 US election – but today I heard them both and realized that they perfectly summarize the perception of the candidates and their relationship to the electorate (and why they voted [not] for them).  US Politics all wrapped up in two songs. Sounds crazy, but just listen (to the lyrics) and make up your own mind:

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see


And she’ll promise you more than the garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you and laugh while you’re bleeding
But she brings out the best and the worst you can be

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is frequently kind and she’s suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases, she’s nobody’s fool
But she can’t be convicted, she’s earned her degree

I’m just a white boy
I play the guitar
I put my pants on
I drive a shit car

You know that I, I’ll give you all the love that have
I’ll empty all my pockets and I give you what I can
You know that I, I’ll give you all the love that have
I’ll give you all the love that I can


Now check this out
I say this
I say this with the deepest appreciation for all you ladies out there
Especially the ones who’ve shown a little love for someone such as myself
You believed in me
Loved me

If it wasn’t for you
There would be no… me

Crazy world out there. Stay home and remain calm. Nothing will be allright. Just be comfortably numb.
