Alone you stand with nobody near

You lose yourself, you reappear
You suddenly find you got nothing to fear
Alone you stand with nobody near

Bob Dylan, «It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)»

he's really nothing

He will speak these words of wisdom
Like a sage, a man of vision
Though he knows he's really nothing
But the brief elaboration of a tube

Leonard Cohen, «Going Home» (album: Old Ideas, 2012)

Et rien n'arrête

Les flamants roses
volent dans le ciel encore
Et rien n'arrête
l'arrivée de l'aurore

Jean Leloup, «Les flamants roses»

living for nothing

You’re living for nothing now
I hope you’re keeping some kind of record.

Leonard Cohen, «Famous Blue Raincoat»
