Human Tragedy Again. Horror Again. Inexplicable Sadness Again.

Like millions I have no words for what happened last night in Nice, France. Just inexplicable feelings of unbelief, disgust and immense, powerless compassion for the victims, their families and friends. I know the place of terror – Promenade des Anglais – quite well. For years now I spend my holidays at the Côte d’Azur in the South of France in a small village some 15 miles from Nice and we went regularly for a walk with the family along the sea on that wide, beautiful and sunny boulevard. Only 4 weeks ago we spend this year’s vacation again in that very same place close to this unfortunate, historic city. Like millions now I can’t understand this awful, hallucinatory reality. So many precious lives wasted… again. Inconceivable tristesse for the broken ones left behind… again. Beyond any comprehension.

Violence in the air
Damage everywhere
Murder in my dreams
Waking up to screams
I just can’t explain
The way I feel inside
Hits me like a train
Eating me alive

Walking with the beast
Walking with the beast
You can’t get no peace
Walking with the beast
You can’t get no peace
You can’t get no peace
Walking with the beast

There goes another man
His future in his hands
Doesn’t know he’s going down
He’s still laughing as he drowns
His pain is his disease
Hurts him every time he breathes
Hates himself and everyone
He’s sucking on a loaded gun

Walking with the beast
Walking with the beast
You can’t get no peace
Walking with the beast
You can’t get no peace
You can’t get no peace
Walking with the beast
