umani



Tool - vicarious
Nell'ultimo disco i tool hanno moderato i vaneggiamenti filosofici e buttato giù una serie di canzoni a sfondo critico, molto più pratiche.
Questa canzone è perfetta per come la penso io sull'uomo moderno.
Vedere fino alla fine.

testo:

Vicarious
____

Eye on the T.V.
'Cause tragedy thrills me.
Whatever flavor it happens to be like…
Killed by the husband...
Drowned by the ocean…
Shot by his own son…
She used the poison in his tea
and kissed him goodbye.
That's my kinda’ story.
It's no fun 'til someone dies.

Don't look at me like I am a monster.
Frown out your one face, but with the other.
Stare like a junkie into the T.V.
Stare like a zombie while the
mother holds her child.
…Watches him die...
Hands to the sky crying, “Why, oh why?”

'Cause I need to watch things die.
…from a distance…
Vicariously, I live while
the whole world dies.
You all need it too.
Don't lie.

Why can't we just admit it?
Why can't we just admit it?

We won't give pause until
the blood is flowing.
Neither the brave nor bold will
write us the story, so
We won't give pause until
the blood is flowing.

I need to watch things die from
a good safe distance.
Vicariously, I live while
the whole world dies.
You all feel the same so why
can't we just admit it?
[ Lyrics provided by www.mp3lyrics.org ]

Blood like rain coming down.
Dru, on grave and ground.

Part vampire.
Part warrior.
Carnivorous voyeur…
Stare at the transmittal.
Sing to the death rattle.

La, la, la, la, la, la, lie.
La, la, la, la, la, la, lie.
La, la, la, la, la, la, lie.
La, la, la, la, la, la, lie.

Incredulous at best, your
desire to believe in.
Angels in the hearts of the men…
Pull your head on out your hippy haze and
give a listen.
Shouldn't have to say it all again.
The universe is hostile.
So impersonal…
Devour to survive, so it is.
…So it's always been…

We all feed on tragedy.
It's like blood to a vampire.
Vicariously, I live while
the whole world dies.
Much better you than I.
