MINISTRY: THE NATURE OF LOVE [TWELVE INCH SINGLES (1981-1984), 1987]

Η προ τριακοντετίας, παρά φύσιν εισαχθείσα στη Ελλάδα “μέρα του Αγίου Βαλεντίνου” δίνει την ευκαιρία για περιπετειώδεις ακροάσεις. Θα έχουμε μια μικρή πληθώρα μουσικών/στιχουργικών προσεγγίσεων του φαινομένου, ξεκινώντας με κλασικούς Ministry, της προ-μέταλ εποχής.

 “Valentine’s Day”, introduced in Greece some 30 years ago, gives us the opportunity for adventurous auditions. We ‘ ll have a small plethora of musical/lyrical approaches to the phenomenon, starting with classic Ministry, of the pre-metal era.

Love
Love is like an open hand
Stings a little when it lands
Hold me closer
Hold me tighter
Hold me so damn close that my heart’s on fire
It’s a fantasy
It’s a nightmare
And the whole damn world is walking round in theirs
I said love
Love is like a razor blade
Double edge and double pain
Hold me closer
Hold me tighter
When I rip your flesh and the pain is fresh
It’s a fantasy
It’s a nightmare
And the whole damn world doesn’t seem to care
I said love
Love is like a butcher knife
Double sharp for single lives
Hold me closer
Hold me tighter
As the lights go out and we start to shout
It’s a fantasy
It’s a nightmare
With a big black bruise and a handful of hair
I said love

      It’s supposed to be “scary” – love here is been approached as “brain damage”.
      Thank you Resa!
