Lite gudsånger

Bukowski / Modest mouse

Den här låten handlar om författaren Bukowski som tydligen har ett otrevligt sätt men även om Gud med kommentaren ”Who would wanna be such a control freak?”

Woke up this morning and it seemed to me, that every night turns out to be a little bit more like Bukowski. And yeah, I know he’s a pretty good read. But God who’d wanna be? God who’d wanna be such an asshole? God who’d wanna be? God who’d wanna be such an asshole?

Well we sat on the edge of the river, the crowd screamed ”Sacrifice the liver!” If God takes life, he’s an Indian giver. So tell me now why you’ll tell me never. Who would wanna be? Who would wanna be such a control freak? Well who would wanna be? Who would wanna be such a control freak?

Here we go!
If God controls the land and disease, and keeps a watchful eye on me, if he’s really so damn mighty, well my problem is that I can’t see, well who’d wanna be? Who’d wanna be such a control freak? Well who would wanna be? Who would wanna be such a control freak?

My teacher’s bed / Logh

Låten börjar med att nämna Gud. Den handlar antagligen om religion, och lögner, men det är inte helt lätt att följa.

God has a wavering hand
Shakes like a leaf
Smoke pours out her windows
It’s a liar’s fire
Death is my teacher’s bed
She was going to call my mother
Don’t fucking bother
I’m already gone

Mile after mile of lights
Mile after mile of night

SNARE, GIRL / Sonic Youth

Denna handlar inte om Gud direkt men den har definitivt ett kristet tema med referenser som disciples = lärljungar, förlåtelse och ett barn har blivit fött. Den är avsevärt mycket snällare än dom två föregående låtarna.

IM HERE FOR YOU
CANT YOU SEE WHAT IM DOIN
I BRING YOU NEWS FROM THE KINGDOM
OF DISCIPLES IN RUIN
BEHOLD A CHILD
HAS JUST BEEN BORN
INTO A LIFE
OF SECRETS SWORN
HOLD OUT YR HANDS
AND TAKE THESE PALMS IVE BEEN GIVEN
THEY ARE WILD WITH BEAUTY FADED
AND THEY CAN GUIDE THIS CHILD TO HEAVEN
SO REST ASSURED
AND UNDERSTAND
HOW HARVEST EYES
RENEW YOUR LAND
IM HERE LOOKING FOR YOU DEAR
IF I COULD SEE CLEAR
THRU ALL THE SUN STAINED STATIONS
ITS ALL UP IN THE AIR GIRL
ITS LIKE A SNARE GIRL
IN ALL ITS MANIFESTATIONS
——————————————-
IM HERE FOR YOU
CANT YOU SEE WHAT IM SAYING
I HAVE PALMS FROM THE RUINS
WHERE DISCIPLES ARE STRAYING
IM COMING AFTER YOU
WITH MERCY GIVEN
AND YOUR SECRETS OUT
NOW YOUR FORGIVEN
IM HERE LOOKING FOR YOU DEAR
CANT YOU SEE CLEAR
ALL THESE SUN STAINED STATIONS
ITS YOU UNDER THE STAIRS GIRL
WITH A SNARE GIRL
SOUNDING SALUTATIONS

Konstig låt: The ineffable me


The drama of my consciousness
Is that having lost the world
I try to recover myself
But in this moment I am lost
It’s always blood, fear, politics, and money
I don’t know how to stop vomiting
Since I’ve been working in office…

Jag har ingen aning om vad titeln betyder. Passagen ovan, som talas istället för att sjungas, är den mest förståerliga delen av låten. Jag älskar detta album — A thousand leaves.

Music inspired by religion

I am an atheist. But most bands I listen to are not, like sonic youth for example. Their religious feelings are expressed through music which I can’t help but to love. Mostly they can avoid being too explicit about the religion so that me and my likes are not turned off. Here is one song available from to Explosions in the Sky — Your hand in mine, from the album The earth is not a cold dead place (2003). I interpret this album to be quite religious.
