Lobster Song

with one comment

Update zu Anaxagoras’ Revenge (Since The Best Girl Is Yet To Big Bang)
and Die Zeit vergeht rund um die Uhr (Die Vergangenheit ist birnenförmig):

Oh the river knows your name
And your tears falling like the rain
All around you suffering and pain
Oh the river knows your name.

John Hiatt: The River Knows Your Name, from: Walk On, 1995.

The Little MermaidAvoid the Oceans of Emotions,
the Seas of Love and Hate and Fears.
Wade shallow waters to the Islands of Silence,
mind the pressure in your ears.
     Oxygen is scarce in water,
     but your life depends on air.
          Behold the wisdom of the Lobster:
          the Lobster does not care.

Do not listen to the Sirens,
they cast their songs and you fall pry.
Their doom is lovely, still their love is doom,
but no one ever heard men cry.
     Hold your head high to the sky,
     or spare your prayer: God is not there.
          Behold the wisdom of the Lobster:
          the Lobster does not care.

The Whales keep singing, pretending to be heard.
Girls cry, though smiling, wet holes in the ground.
The time you can’t tell begins every second,
but assume that a falling tree makes a sound.
     God lives in Sirens and Whales and you
     did not not hear Him promise that Life would be fair.
          Behold the wisdom of the Lobster:
          the Lobster does not care.
