So für mich hin

Get Flash to see this player.

Based upon a poem by Goethe; "Gefunden" (Found).

The most important of Goethe's works produced before he went to Weimar were his tragedy Götz von Berlichingen (1773), which was the first work to bring him recognition, and the novel The Sorrows of Young Werther (called Die Leiden des jungen Werthers in German) (1774), which gained him enormous fame as a writer in the Sturm und Drang period which marked the early phase of Romanticism – indeed the book is often considered to be the "spark" which ignited the movement, and can arguably be called the world's first "best-seller". (For the entirety of his life this was the work with which the vast majority of Goethe's contemporaries associated him). During the years at Weimar before he met Schiller he began Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship, wrote the dramas Iphigenie auf Tauris (Iphigenia in Tauris), Egmont, Torquato Tasso, and the fable Reineke Fuchs.
To the period of his friendship with Schiller belong Wilhelm Meister's Journeyman Years (the continuation of Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship), the idyll of Hermann and Dorothea, the Roman Elegies and the verse drama The Natural Daughter. In the last period, between Schiller's death, in 1805, and his own, appeared Faust Part One, Elective Affinities, the West-Eastern Divan (a collection of poems in the Persian style, influenced by the work of Hafez), his autobiographical Aus meinem Leben: Dichtung und Wahrheit (From My Life: Poetry and Truth) which covers his early life and ends with his departure for Weimar, his Italian Journey, and a series of treatises on art. His writings were immediately influential in literary and artistic circles.
Faust Part Two was only finished in the year of his death, and was published posthumously.

So für mich hin
(After a Poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

I was walking in the woods
Just on a whim of mine,
And seeking nothing,
That was my intention.
In the shade I saw
A little flower standing
Like stars glittering
Like beautiful little eyes.

Ich ging im Walde // I was walking in the woods
So für mich hin // Just on a whim of mine
Wie Sterne leuchtend // Like stars glittering
Wie Äuglein schön // Like beautiful little eyes

I dug it out with all
Its little roots.
To the garden I carried it
By the lovely house.

And replanted it
In this quiet spot;
Now it keeps branching out
And blossoms ever forth.

Ich ging im Walde
So für mich hin,
Wie Sterne leuchtend
Wie Äuglein schön.

Lost Me With the Description
I think that was just because I was so anxious to get to the music. You got me right back with the music. All of your stuff is edgy yet so perfectly constructed. This is no exception. So many interesting sounds weaved together into an incredible sounding track.

grabbed me right away
with that bass line/loop--the vibe almost sounds like a long-lost three-way collab between the Cure, Depeche Mode and Bootsy Collins... Goethe would be proud.

Did I say that before on another song of yours?
The bass track is plainly sick.
Trying to describe what this produces in my mind, my ignorance makes me say this has a ramstein/depeche mode vibe, if that's ever possible.
Man, you are incredible.
