Verano de Vigilias (Dead Flag Blues)

Algunos veranos parecen salidos de un mal sueño.

Grabado con un móvil a lo largo de julio y agosto de 2016 y remezclado más o menos al mismo tiempo desde un salón en el que hacía mucho calor.

Inspirado en hechos reales y en la letra de Dead Flag Blues, uno de los primeros y más emblemáticos temas de la banda canadiense Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

“The car’s on fire and there’s no driver at the wheel
and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides
and a dark wind blows.

The government is corrupt
and we’re on so many drugs
with the radio on and the curtains drawn.

We’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machine
and the machine is bleeding to death.

The sun has fallen down
and the billboards are all leering
and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles.

It went like this:

The buildings tumbled in on themselves
mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble
and pulled out their hair.

The skyline was beautiful on fire
all twisted metal stretching upwards
everything washed in a thin orange haze.

I said: “kiss me, you’re beautiful –
these are truly the last days”

You grabbed my hand and we fell into it
like a daydream or a fever.

We woke up one morning and fell a little further down –
for sure it’s the valley of death.

I open up my wallet
and it’s full of blood.”
