MARILYN MANSON : GOD’S GONNA CUT YOU DOWN [2019]

Το παραδοσιακό Αμερικάνικο τραγούδι God’s Gonna Cut You Down διασκευασμένο από τον Marilyn Manson, με τις ευχές μου…

The traditional American folk song God’s Gonna Cut You Down covered by Marilyn Manson, with my wishes…

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later, God’ll cut you down
Sooner of later, God’ll cut you down
Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down
Well, my goodness gracious, let me tell you the news
My head’s been wet with the midnight dew
I’ve been down on bended knee, talkin’ to the man from Galilee
He spoke to me in his voice so sweet
I thought that I heard the shuffle of angel’s feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said, “John, go do My will”
Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down
You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later, God’ll cut you down
Sooner of later, God’ll cut you down
Well, you may throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin’ in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light
What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light
You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later, God’ll cut you down
Sooner of later, God’ll cut you down
Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut ’em down

    That was a very powerful performance of the old song, terrifying, in fact.

      I agree and very fitting too, in my humble opinion. I also appreciate MM’s aesthetic view, hence he’s one of the rare occasions I do watch the videos. Strong and disturbing images but with great attention to detail.

        The images did contribut a lot to the terror I experienced.

          He’s a morbid sort of artist but he does it so well. Very talented.

    I just listened to the Johnny Cash version. Just as powerful, but with an entirely different feel.

      Indeed very different. Still, to me MM is ‘closer’ to the core of this song.

        I have to agree. The images in the Cash video I watched (a bunch of famous people) seemed to fight the song itself.

          That also put me off on that video.

            It seemed like a big misstep. I was surprised.

    Well, this character can deliver the gods!
    Hmm I meant “goods”, but somehow the “gods” works, too.
