about

Von Korf Osnabrück, Germany

„Von Korf, escorting us only due to rhyme
has no advice to offer.“
- Christian Morgenstern
He who has no advice can do the primary step nevertheless. He can talk straight, spit out what hurts – while knowing, live is about sound, about moments, and home. And about action.

Track Name: money
(by Sam Nosa Osarenkhoe)

oh my dearest friend, money oh money
you are precious
you are dangerous
you make your friends smile
you make your friends sad

oh my dearest friend, money oh money
my people deserted me because of you
my people beg in the streets because of you
my people are dying in africa because of you
my people risk their lives
at the borders of europe
because of you

oh my dearest friend, money oh money
you are dearest to me when i need you
dearest to me when i long for you
oh money
money can buy a woman but no love
money can buy a bed but no sleep
money can buy a home, no happiness
money can buy a great army but no peace

oh my dearest friend, money oh money
you are like rain to me
rain comes and goes
the wise man makes use of the season
and becomes rich
I must be myself to seek you
I must not die to seek you
I must not lie to touch you
I must not kill to have you
my dearest friend

oh my dearest friend, money oh money
I will be patient till we meet in harmony
I will be patient till we meet in peace
your time my time will come
it will be a bright sunny day
oh my dearest friend
money oh money
Track Name: Sie schläft
(by Kurt Tucholsky alias Theobald Tiger)

Morgens, vom letzten Schlaf ein Stück,
nimm mich ein bißchen mit –
auf deinem Traumboot zu gleiten ist Glück –
Die Zeituhr geht ihren harten Schritt ...
pick-pack ...

»Sie schläft mit ihm« ist ein gutes Wort.
Im Schlaf fließt das Dunkle zusammen.
Zwei sind keins. Es knistern die kleinen Flammen,
aber dein Atem fächelt sie fort.

Ich bin aus der Welt. Ich will nie wieder in sie zurück
jetzt, wo du nicht bist, bist du ganz mein.
Morgens, im letzten Schlummer ein Stück,
kann ich dein Gefährte sein.
