Max Frisch

Technology is a way of organizing the universe so that man doesn't have to experience it.

I - The Universe

i - the universe -
is trying to empty myself
like a pocket
to inspect all that i have
kept for so long
the sun, moon, stars
the sea, river.......
in the task
i - the universe -
finds that this is
just a part of
the game played
in the darkness of space
where others are
shifting through
their own pockets
to see what they
have kept for so long
and which has
me falling out
from one of them

Talking To The Universe

Hey, yoko!
Imagine a grapefruit and squeeze it on me.
Ah!
You say mustnt do this and that,
You say cant do this and that
While youre losing your pants in a bullet-proof car,
Losing your hair in a downtown bar.
Oh, forget it, just forget it,
Its the curse, youre my curse, it could be worse.
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Ooh - listen!
You say mustnt have this and that,
You say cant have this and that
While youre losing your apple and squeezing our balls,
Losing your mind and crawling up the walls.
Oh, forget it, just forget it,
Its the curse, youre my curse, it could be worse.
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Ooh -
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Ooh - listen!
Ooh -
Oh yeah, do you wanna touch me, oh yeah
Do you wanna break your mind, boy?
?
Youre a dildo, Im a whore,
Im a barbie, youre a hore.
Living in a glass house, having fun,
Lying in a glass house watching the sun.
Forget it, just forget it,
Its the curse, you are my curse, it could be worse.
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Im just talking to the universe,
Ooh -
Ooh -
Ooh -
Ooh -
Ooh -
Ooh -.......

I Have Nothing To Say Today

I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY TODAY

I have nothing to say today-
And what I said yesterday,
No longer means much-
What I say tomorrow too,
Will not resound throughout the universe.

All that these endless words have given
Is one long silence-
Which should have disturbed less.

Benjamin Disraeli

A man can know nothing of mankind without knowing something of himself. Self-knowledge is the property of that man whose passions have their full play, but who ponders over their results.

What you could say, and what I do argue in the book, is that he doesn't have as much concern for the lives of Iraqis as he does for the lives of Americans, or even frozen American embryos.

Fragment: Love The Universe To-Day

And who feels discord now or sorrow?
Love is the universe to-day--
These are the slaves of dim to-morrow,
Darkening Life's labyrinthine way.

Those Who Will Explain The Universe

THOSE WHO WILL EXPLAIN THE UNIVERSE/

Who can believe that from this small Earth will come
Those who will explain the Universe to and for God,
In such a way that God will love us
As God’s Greatest Creation?

Hidden Centre Of The Universe

me, a mirror
for the sun
to see itself
to greet the moon
for the bloom
to open its way
into my heart
the hidden centre
of the universe
for the world
to progress
from world to world
me a mirror
for the gods
to see themselves
and dance out
a sensous dance
my heart,
the center of the universe

Sonnet: The Universe

Many are the suns than the Sun we know;
Our Sun is just one star in Milky Way;
And centrally sited, luminous- oh!
Giving the earth, light and heat every day.

Planets in orbits move around the Sun,
Spinning on their own and looking round;
The Universe is wonderful with fun,
And harmonious, by physical laws bound.

Earth’s the only place where man best can live;
And God made man with love, ensouled him too;
To all creatures earthly, man must love give,
And love Mother Nature, her secrets woo.

Science takes man closer towards God sometime;
His soul must remain pure and mind sublime.

I Cannot Promise The Universe Will Grow Wiser And Wiser

I CANNOT PROMISE THE UNIVERSE WILL GROW WISER AND WISER

I cannot promise the Universe will grow wiser and wiser-
I cannot know that greater lights will shine towards the end-
I cannot know that we all of us
Are on the way Up and Up and Up Forever-
I cannot say the Universe is our Continent
And all we need to know is to continue going West in it
I cannot promise you when Time and Times are Done
A greater Soul or Oversoul-

I do not know what God will give us in the end-
I pray against the all- scattered emptiness and endless darkness-
But who am I and where was I
When the foundations of the earth were laid?
How can I say or know where and what all these other universes are on their way to?
We are not what we dream to be no matter how great and courageous our dreams.
God in my ignorance God in our ignorance-
Where does it all? When will it all? What does it all –Mean?

Across The Universe

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
Jai Guru De Va Om
Nothings gonna change my world
Nothings gonna change my world.
Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
That call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind
Inside a letter box they
Tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe
Jai Guru De Va Om
Nothings gonna change my world
Nothings gonna change my world.
Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing
Through my open views inciting and inviting me.
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns,
It calls me on and on across the universe
Jai Guru De Va Om
Nothings gonna change my world
Nothings gonna change my world.

When I Make A Decision I Try To See The Universe And The Ant

when i make a decision about your life
your liberty or your property
i always try to see the universe, the paths of the planets,
the way they orbit around the sun
near and far, bright or dull,
the whole
of this universe in motion like a fluid of fire
i look up
for a sign a symbol of what ought to be
and given the situation how the planets would behave
then
i look down the smallest of the ant
its tiny feet its capacity to bite and eat and swallow
the universe
into its mouth and belly,
the smallest
of all shall be considered, the details of its possibilities
the intricacies of its
wishes and dreams
tiny
and its relation to the universal, to the great view of the
giants,

the forest and the trees, the shadows and the shapes,
light and darkness,

and then liberty may be taken away, property may be forfeited,
and life may even be shut out
because the law has become the god
on that black and white
the booking sheet.

Order Of The Universe

I order theme
(anderson / howe / wakeman / bruford)
Instrumental
Ii rock gives courage
(anderson / howe / wakeman / bruford / lawrence)
You dont need anybody, dont you give me that surprise
Everything about you inside your eyes
You dont need anybody in your family ties
You crossed over the river
You dont need any money to deserve all your friends
Its just the love you give them
You dont need anybody in this complicated life
You crossed over the river
And youre there on your own and youre lost in your life
And you think theres someones gonna make you feel so good
You better lose control you better watch your step
For theres something inside you, they call it
Rock gives courage, a way to win the trust
Rock gives lover a way to win or bust
You dont need anybody in this complicated life
You crossed over the river
Rock gives courage, a way to with the trust
Rock gives lovers a way to win or bust
Rock gives sisters a way to speak their mind
Without this gift of rock and roll
Wed all be wasting time
Iii its so hard to grow
(anderson / howe / wakeman / bruford)
They say weve got it made, they say we gotta light
Where is the man with all the great directions
They say we gotta win, they say we gotta learn
But in the end its just the same damn reason
They say youve gotta run, they say you gotta jump
Dont really need to know which way were going
They say we gotta push, they say we gotta shout
Is this the way to keep our bonfires burning
Sick feeling, sick reasoning, sick challenge you la la la la
You cant imagine it, how hard it is to grow
You cant imagine it, can you imagine
The order of the universe
You dont need anybody, dont you give me that surprise
Everything about you inside your eyes
You dont need anybody in your family ties
You crossed over the river
You dont need any money to deserve all your friends
Its just the love you give em
You dont need anybody in the complicated life
You crossed over the river, you crossed over the river
You crossed over the river, you crossed over the river
Iv the universe
(anderson / howe / wakeman / bruford)
The order of the universe
The order of the universe

A man said to the universe:

A man said to the universe:
"Sir I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."
