Attibute this to Mr. Andrew Heffner, but I’ve gotten back into the kick of finding quality, yet obscure artists. For awhile I was back in the hip-hop mode (the new Lupe Fiasco, new Jay-Z, Mark Ronson… although he’s more obscure right now), and then I was suggested LCD Soundsytem, Ane Brun (you were right, Al, I did like her a lot), and then decided to download Of Montreal’s new album “Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?” and fell upon this song, “Gronlandic Edit”.
Get this song and listen whilst you read the lyrics. Read with and without a Christian Worldview. I really like the beauty/pleasure motif. The last lines are a siginificant answer to the questions the rest of the song poses.
This was a great little find this morning.
(The surrealists were just)
Nihilists with good imaginations
I am satisfied hiding in our friend’s apartment
Only leaving once a day to buy some groceries
Daylight, I’m so absent minded
Nighttime meeting new anxieties
So am I erasing myself?
Hope I’m not erasing myself
Guess it would be nice to give my heart to a god
But which one which one do I choose?
All the churches fill with losers, psycho or confused
I just want to hold the divine in mine
And forget all of the beauty’s wasted
Let’s fall back to earth and do something pleasant
We fell back to earth like gravity’s bitches
(Physics makes us all its bitches)
Guess it would be nice to help in your escape
From patterns your parents designed
All the party people dancing for the indie star
But he’s the worst faker by far
But in the set, I forget all of the beauty’s wasted
Guess it could be nice
Show me that things can be nice
You’ve got my back in the city
You’ve got my back, ’cause I don’t want to panic
