Rieccomi. Morto. O anche vivo. In ogni caso non certo nei piú felici dei miei giorni. Smettiamo questo rammollimento, torniamo al dunque:

Non so quanti di voi conoscano la band inglese Faithless.  Si tratta secondo me di una delle migliori band del mondo. La voce del cantante, il ritmo, la musica, i testi, i video, i messaggi.. creano una atmosfera unica.

Oggi vi mostro una delle loro migliori canzoni, una canzone che trasmette dei messaggi veramente importanti. Vi posto il video, cosí vi potete fare un impressione:

 

Questa é vera arte. Il testo é una poesia unica. Chiunque é il regista di questo video é riuscito a creare un pezzo d’arte degno della musica che rappresenta. Il cantante che canta contro il muro é molto significativo, e la scena con i ragazzi purtroppo é fin troppo vera (Ora ramses vi svela qualcosa: la scena dei bambini (purtroppo) mi ricordo in molti punti la mia infanzia)

Ora vi riporto il testo in inglese, per chi non lo avesse capito:

(Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you’re soar away sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruc
You could a Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction)

My dad came into my room holding his hat
I knew he was leaving,
he sat on my bed told me some facts, son.
I have a duty, calling on me
You and your sister be brave my little soldier
And don’t forget all I told ya
Your the mister of the house now remember this
And when you wake up in the morning give ya momma a kiss
Then I had to say goodbye

In the morning woke momma with a kiss on each eyelid,
Even though I’m only a kid
Certain things can’t be hid
Momma grabbed me
Held me like I was made of gold
But left her inner stories untold
I said, momma it will be alright
When daddy comes home, tonight

[CHORUS]

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you’re soar away sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruc
You could a Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether Halliburton or Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

The skin under my chin
is exploding, again.
I’m getting stress from some other children.
I’m holding it in, we taking sides, like a politian
an if I get friction we get to fightin.
I defend my dad he’s the best of all men
an whatever he’s doin he’s doin the right thing.
Its frightenin but it makes me mad, why do all
of these people seem to hate my dad?
an if that ain’t enough, now I’ve got these spots.
I go to sleep every night with my stomach in knots.
and whats more I can hear Mama next door
explore the radio for reports of war.
and all we ever seem to do is hide the tears,
seems Daddy been gone for years.
But he was right, now I’m geared up for the fight
an he would be proud of me if Daddy came home tonight.

[CHORUS]

My story stops here, lets be clear
This scenario is happening everywhere
And you ain’t going to nirvana or farvana
You’re coming right back here to live out your karma
With even more drama than previously, seriously
Just how many centuries have we been
waiting for someone else to make us free
And we refuse to see
That people overseas suffer just like we
Bad leadership and ego’s unfettered and free
Who feed on the people they’re supposed to lead
I don’t need good people to pray and wait
For the lord to make it all straight
There’s only now, do it right.
Cos I don’t want your daddy, leaving home tonight

[CHORUS]

Ora vi traduco (per i meno anglofoni di noi) il ritornello (traduzione fatta sotto effetti di bevande alcooliche.. quindi scusate la qualitá):

Non dipende se missile a lungo raggio o attacco suicida,
La mente malata é una arma di distruzione di massa
Non dipende se sei il nulla o BBC1
Disinformazione é una arma di distruzione di massa
Puoi essere del caucaso oppure un povero asiatico
Rassismo é una arma di distruzione di massa
Non dipende se inflazione o globalizzazione
Paura é un arma di distruzione di massa.

 

Buona notta amici.. e riflettete su queste parole..
