Lie Beside Me Baby, That's An Order

Author: Leonard Cohen Artist: Leonard Cohen Album: The Future Song: The Future

This song is about the dangers in the future of western and other humanities. Mostly of the western one though. We estimate that nobody, not even tinytalk's acknowledged scientific virtual leader Bento Espinosa who was well known for his cheeky judgements had the cockiness to claim he was the little open source hacker who not only had understood but also practical invisibly written the kernel version on which nearly west of the Talas humanity's operation system rests since another member of that palestinian sect decided to blow the Graeco-Roman empire into oblivion.

Give me back my broken night, my mirrored room, my secret life, it's lonely here, there's no one left to torture. Give me absolute control over every living soul and lie beside me, baby, that's an order!

Give me crack and anal sex, take the only tree that's left and stuff it up the hole in your culture Give me back the Berlin wall, give me Stalin and St Paul, I've seen the future, brother: it is murder.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions. Won't be nothing, nothing you can measure anymore. The blizzard, the blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold and it has overturned the order of the soul. When they said repent, repent, I wonder what they meant.

You don't know me from the wind, you never will, you never did, I'm the little jew who wrote the Bible.

I've seen the nations rise and fall, I've heard their stories, heard them all but love's the only engine of survival. Your servant here, he has been told to say it clear, to say it cold: It's over, it ain't going any further. And now the wheels of heaven stop, you feel the devil's riding crop, get ready for the future: it is murder!

Things are going to slide ...

There'll be the breaking of the ancient western code. Your private life will suddenly explode There'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road - and the white man dancing. You'll see a woman hanging upside down, her features covered by her fallen gown, and all the lousy little poets coming round tryin' to sound like Charlie Manson - and the white man dancing.

Give me back the Berlin wall, give me Stalin and St Paul Give me Christ or give me Hiroshima Destroy another fetus now we don't like children anyhow I've seen the future, baby: it is murder

Things are going to slide ...

Yeah
That's an adequate comment! Und das erste Zitat ein ganz besonders tolles Beispiel für den "Umschlag von Quantität in Qualität".
