Our Life

(by Aspazija; my translation from the Latvian original)

Our life is so brief here,
Like a bird’s rest upon a twig,
A hundred desires of the heart
Rushing to cast each other out.

From backwards looking habits,
The future calls us hence,
Misunderstood, disused,
Away from this troubled present.

It is as if the marsh lights fortune*
Enticingly appears –
As you rush forwards to grasp it
The lights are already shining behind you.

Only that which we have lost,
Do we admit as being precious
And behind the pain, it is for tranquility
We search, along with hope.

As the pages fade to pale
And life’s blossom shrivels
The heart within our breast
Still twitches unhappily.

Up to the unreachable heights
Our ideals lift away –
For us creatures formed from dust
All that remains is struggling after them.

Aspazija

(*Note: “marsh lights’ fortune” refers to the Latvian legend that where
there are “false fires” (Will O’the Wisps) in marshes, one can find
money)

when u realize people have been protesting against trump and his shitty ass policies from the day he got in office to his 100th day……….. 

Let’s keep it up until the day he’s gone.

And on the day he’s gone those of us who’ve made it that far get to march one more time. A spontaneous march in every town, on every street.

Freedom Fighter, Bowery Electric (2000)

We hold these things to be true
Like a flock of sparrows flying over you
We plot and we plan
Burning oil like the world won’t end
Like the world won’t end

Another day, another world war
Find out walking through the grocery store
Watching bombs through the TV eye
Light it up like the Fourth of July
Like the Fourth of July

God’s on both sides
But I don’t break it when the bombs start flying
I know it’s just a symbol to you
You, you come on like a freedom fighter
You come on like a freedom fighter

Another gift from a far off friend
Coming at you from over the sand
That’s what the bellicose do
We try to reach the human in you
The human in you

God’s on both sides
Thank God we make them try
Don’t wake when the camera’s on you
You, you’ll go out like a freedom fighter
You’re gone like a freedom fighter

You’ll go out like a freedom fighter
You’ll go out like a freedom fighter
You’ll go out like a freedom fighter

radiohead – the numbers

It holds us like a phantom
It touches like a breeze
It shines its understanding
See the moon smiling

Open on all channels
Ready to receive
And we’re not at the mercy
Of your chimeras and spells
Your chimeras and spells

We are of the earth
To her we do return
The future is inside us
It’s not somewhere else
It’s not somewhere else
It’s not somewhere else

One day at a time

We call upon the people
People have this power
The numbers don’t decide
Your system is a lie
The river running dry
The wings of a butterfly
And you may pour us away like soup
Like we’re pretty broken flowers
We’ll take back what is ours
We’ll take back what is ours

One day at a time

spc eco – fuck you

Fuck you
You don’t fool me or anybody
Fuck off
You don’t fool me or anybody

Don’t need to feel
Like time is real
I let you down
You
Don’t need to feel
Your dying need
To make it better
Don’t need to make sense
Don’t need to get loud
No need to make a sound

Don’t need to hear
You made it clear
I’m getting tired
Don’t
Be fake to people
Living down and out
I see you in the highest places
Don’t
Need fame
or live
In vain
I boast
The deck of cards

Don’t need to make a scene
Don’t need to get loud
No need to make a sound

Fuck off
You don’t fool me or anybody
Fuck you
You don’t fool me or anybody

Coraline, Rose Berlin

I see you there
And I wonder how and why
I’m here I see her there
Always wanted
Always wanted someone who’d
Pay me attention
Oh well now I’ve got it
So why do I feel so alone?

We are small but we are many
We are many we are small
We were here before you rose
And we will be here when you fall

Inside her eyes
There’s nothing
But a face
No complexion and no life
Even though I can’t see
What she’s thinking
I can tell
Somehow I see her there

We have teeth and we have tails
We have tails and we have eyes
We were here before you fell
And we will be here when you rise

Other mother
See me cry
Have pity
All I want is to be at home
There’s nothing
There

School of Seven Bells – Music Takes Me

I hear you in the trees
Swaying as you sing to me (to me)
Feeling as your heart
Pulses through my weary body
Taking off the tears
And the heartache that I carry
Time to throw it down (down)
Time to light it up (up)
Raise it to the sky and watch it
Burn, burn, burn, burn

These days I’m feeling the sun come through
Stealing the starry sky
Revealing the magic show to me tonight
I’m feeling the moon come through
Stars sway under my feet
The lights all around me glow
And music takes me

I feel you as I breathe
Sing the songs you sang to me
I hear you when I sleep
Singing with me as I dream
And I just want to say
Thank you, thank you for all you gave
Thrown by the sound (sound)
Time to light it up (up)
Raise it to the sky and watch it
Burn, burn, burn, burn

This isn’t about being right
I’m just trying to follow
This life where it goes
It’s a gamble
I keep you wasting my time
With the daggers when guarding the
Love in my heart is the battle
Out at the house to the city
The fire that led me, accused me
The fire that feeds me
I’ll be remembering always the fire
That wasn’t my sea is the one who
Redeemed me

These days I’m feeling the sun come through
Stealing the starry sky
Revealing the magic show to me tonight
I’m feeling the moon come through
Stars sway under my feet
The lights all around me glow
And music takes me

These days I’m feeling the sun come through
Stealing the starry sky
Revealing the magic show to me tonight
I’m feeling the moon come through
Stars sway under my feet
The lights all around me glow
And music takes me

“Put Your Sad Down” – School of Seven Bells

I know you gotta, you gotta be on your own
Who left you wanting, wanting to fall in love
That’s alright cause all that I wanna do
Is make you forget, forget that you feel so bad
Give your heart a second to find the will again
Put your sad down
And tonight just feel with your body

And tonight just feel with your body

Put your sad down
And tonight just feel with your body
Put your sad down

So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure

And tonight just feel with your body
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
And tonight just feel with your body
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure, put your sad down
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
And tonight just feel with your body

So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure

I know you gotta, you gotta be on your own
Who left you wanting, wanting to fall in love
That’s alright cause all that I wanna do
Is make you forget, forget that you feel so bad
Give your heart a second to find the will again
Put your sad down
And tonight just feel with your body

So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure
And tonight just feel with your body
So baby no pressure
I’m just talking pleasure (x4)

marjorierose:

I saw Arrival last night (I loved it) and some of the music reminded me strongly of this piece, Nico Muhly’s “Mothertongue.” Which would also fit in very well to the movie, so if anyone is making a playlist of Arrival-ish music, you should include it.

Hat tip to Nadia Sirota and Meet the Composer for introducing me to Muhly, and to most of the other new-classical composers I know anything about.
