Tekst Woyzeck

+ Do you know how long it’s been? Do you know how long it’s going to be as well?

+ When you’re cold you won’t feel cold anymore. The morning dew won’t make you feel cold.

+ Stop here. Going now. You’ve no need to run your feet off. Our kind have only this small corner in the whole world.

+ How do I know???  Everyone is an abyss. You get dizzy when you look down!!!

+ Don’t see anything. You should be able to see it, you should be able to hold it in your hands.

+ Hear that, Quiet!!!   It’s the water, it’s calling out!

+ Did you know? You’d think the weight of all that black hair would drag here down.

+ Shh! Do you hear?? Something’s behind me, beneath me!

+ Hollow, d’you hear?? Completely hollow under there!  You want to hold your breath. Silent, completely silent.

+ The place is cursed!!! I have no peace!! My head is swimming!!! I’m not getting angry!!

+ Haven’t you heard anything? And it speaks out of the walls. Don’t you hear anything?

+ I’m tired. What idiotic dreams people have!

+ It will sink like a stone in that dark water. I must wash!

+ Who’s talking down there. Do I hear it up here too? Is the wind saying it?

+ What kind of place is this? What’s that? Something moved! Somewhere just here.
