Ainda não li o novo livro* de Enrique Vila-Matas (ainda estou acabando outro, e são tantos livros pausados esperando...) no entanto, comprei este com urgência, pois sabia que o tema era por demais especial. Daniel Pelizzari confirma isto em trecho da apresentação do livro, onde nos diz: "...Vila-Matas estende uma corda para equilibristas que não parecem tão interessados na travessia, mas sim em mergulhar em si mesmos, explorar o vazio, desaparecer no abismo que é a vida cotidiana." ____ *Exploradores do Abismo de Enrique Vila-Matas foi lançado pela editora Cosac Naify neste ano, 2013.
DESERT SAND Fall back All out of words Too busy trying to save them for the truth. So brutal the nights they are. I couldn't sleep the streets were oh so cold. To die, to be asleep. We'll have the darkness to the roaring sea. So foolish I know you are, To take a walk and never so much stars. And then I start to dream But I can't read directions in my sleep. The sun comes with the tide And it's so beautiful I close my eyes. ___ *Desert Sand é Beach Fossils no EP Daydream. [clique para ouvir]
WINTER SKIN* [clique para ouvir ... and sing to sleep] Let's build a couple fragile of bridges together Let's run across it and reach the sky Let's run across and meet the next hazel sunrise It's a sign of failure written all over these lonley skies and our fortune has created time Time of exsiting in a begining so today the sun refused to shine Sing me to sleep Oh my darling, your eyes refused to catch my tear Sing me to sleep Let's build a kingdom in the desert and jump up and down when it rains and jump up and down the next time it shall rain There's only five winds owned by the holy gods our gods that obey the soil soaked from the sweat dripping down the weeping ol' willow Winter is here Winter is here and she is glowing with her light embracing her strength with her final bite Winter winter winter is here _______ *Winter Skin é Y La Bamba no álbum Alida St.
[é uma ficção sobre o deserto. não é o meu deserto. mas existem tantos desertos como existem pessoas].
Your Soul and Mine* [clique para escutar] Standing in the ruins Of another Black man's life, or flying through the valley separating day and night. "I am death," cried the Vulture, "For the people of the light." Charon brought his raft from the sea that sails on souls, And saw the scavenger departing, taking warm hearts to the cold. He knew the ghetto was the haven for the meanest creature ever known. In a wilderness of heartbreak and a desert of despair, Evil's carrion of justice shrieks a cry of naked terror. He's taking babies from their momas and leaving grief beyond compare. So if you see the Vulture coming, flying circles in your mind, Remember there is no escaping for he will follow close behind. Only promised me a battle, battle for your soul and mine. * Your Soul and Mine é uma canção de Gil Scott-Heron no álbum I'm New Here.
