The Mars Volta med Ouroborou

17.05.2020 | youtube

Lidt mere Volta, Mars: Først lidt historie. Mars Volta blev vist dannet i cirka 2000. Gik i opløsning 2012. Albummet jeg har til nærværende lytning, The Bedlam in Goliath, er fra 2008. Grunden til nærværet og lytningen er at Thomas Pridgen spiller trommer på albummet. Ham fandt jeg før jeg startede lytningen. På den anden side forstår jeg ikke at jeg ikke har hørt bandet før. Hmmm. Lyt

Nummeret hedder Ouroborou - et eller andet symbol der afbilleder søslanger eller drager. Lad os se hvordan det hænger sammen med sangteksten:

It appears to me Quoting alarms The guillotine smirks In your house I smothered Sight unseen Sworn to harm Ground to a powder And soaked through the board [Chorus 1] Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy When will you flirt with all that's burning? Keep them safe and by your side Of all that's left A lucid home Anecdote settles in the smear of this corpse If the larvae speaks ask where to go They mount the maker with a sulphur in fume [Chorus 1] [Chorus 2] Of all the warnings that you gave me With all components in the fault Have you ever heard me scraping? It will be hard to hold [Chorus] [Chorus 2] All I hear Mending the gap Fall in here Might not make it back Call that someone May they hear you Take me with you It's not safe in here And all you ask is why, why, why And all you ask is why I'm certain you're holding on Mirror floats to the surface Holding on [Chorus 2] [x2] They lost the presence they were holding Looks like the tenants flickered off If the cell that holds me breaks me It will be hard to hold

Den sammenhæng blev jeg ikke klogere på. Gjorde du? Jeg er specielt vild med omkvædet (eller hvad det er):

Of all the warnings that you gave me With all components in the fault Have you ever heard me scraping? It will be hard to hold

Måske skal der stå "With all components in default", altså halvhjertet oversat af hvadend for en robot. Meget datalogisk, i hvert fald. Totalt fedt!
