Hann Tom Waits karlinn hefur ekki bara sótt innblástur í tónlist Kurt Weills -- hann hefur actually flutt lag eftir gamla þýska snillinginn:

Sækja "What Keeps Mankind Alive" (2.1 MB niðurhal innanlands)

Og hérna eru textar Bertolds Brecht:

You gentlemen who think you have a mission
To purge us of the seven deadly sins
Should first sort out the basic food position
Then start your preaching, that’s where it begins

You lot who preach restraint and watch your waist as well
Should learn, for once, the way the world is run
However much you twist or whatever lies that you tell
Food is the first thing, morals follow on

So first make sure that those who are now starving
Get proper helpings when we all start carving
What keeps mankind alive?

What keeps mankind alive?
The fact that millions are daily tortured
Stifled, punished, silenced and oppressed
Mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
In keeping its humanity repressed
And for once you must try not to shriek the facts
Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts

Geðveikt lag, miklu betra en síðasti diskur Waits, (kannski af því hann samdi þetta ekki)
