DEAD CAN DANCE : INDOCTRINATION [A Design for Living]

Από το άλμπουμ των Dead Can Dance [Lisa Gerrard και Brendan Perry], Spleen and Ideal, 1984 …περισσότερο για τους στίχους
Ακολουθώντας τη διάθεση του οικοδεσπότη.

From Dead Can Dance [Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry] 1984 album, Spleen and Ideal …also mainly for the lyrics.
Following the host’s mood.


In times of great vexation,
When one must choose between what’s right and wrong.
Freedom, so they say,
Amounts to the choices you have made
Through all the arbitrary rationale concerning liberty.
Freedom, I must say,
Exists within unconditioned minds.
Reason has come of age.
How can you be satisfied with things the way they are,
When all that surrounds us now, and so much more,
Remains inside the keeper’s dark embrace?
The insatiable thirst for power has made
Idols out of mortals, gods into clay,
Soldiers into heros, children into slaves,
All damned.
Desires,
Their hopes betrayed.
Who will suffer the laws
That State can decide your child’s education
Unless you pay the price?
Who will suffer their laws?
Who will suffer their minds?
Who will suffer their words?
Who will suffer their designs?
Who will suffer their laws?
Who will suffer their minds?
Who will suffer their words?
Who will suffer their designs?

      Back in the 90s I was very much into goth abd dark bands. They had a very interesting sound and to this day I prefer the songs where Perry sings rather than L. Gerrard (you have probably heard her voice in several films)

        I will look that up. I may have heard her, and not know her name.
        Lol! I’ll have to draw Art Gowns Models in Goth. First I want to do the Picasso look, and right now, it’s spirit gowns for ep. 3 of the Chicago adventure. I’ll send what I came up with for you. Still, dark all day. Thursday is partly sunny, so I’ll try to garb some shots then!
