KING CRIMSON : 21st CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN [1969]

Η περίσταση απαιτεί μια παρένθεση στο αφιέρωμα “Mουσική για Φαντάσματα”. Είναι το κλασικό των κλασικών από το In The Court Of The Crimson King, άλμπουμ – ντεμπούτο των King Crimson.
The occasion demands a short interval from the “Music For Ghosts” tribute. It is the classic of the classics from
In The Court Of The Crimson King, King Crimson’s debut album.

A-one, two, three, four
Two, two, three
Cat’s foot, iron claw
Neurosurgeons scream for more
Paranoia’s poison door
21st century schizoid man
Blood rack, barbed wire
Politicians funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
21st century schizoid man
Death seed, blind man’s greed
Poets starving, children bleed
Nothing he’s got, he really needs
21st century schizoid man

    Thank you! I haven’t heard this in quite awhile. The sound has held out all these years, and it has become more prophetic than I could have ever realized.

    So, here we are – 21st century schizoids.

      I was thinking about the same thing. Here I was a little boy in the middle ’70s dealing with this song for the first time, like science fiction, referring to a future distant and therefore “impossible”. And here are we now some forty years later, experiencing science fiction in real time.
