HUSH HUSH - LYRICS

Note: I'm often inspired by Michael Jackson's song Speed Demon which for me is the epitome of words with little-to-no content serving a much greater aesthetic purpose and mood. Not that Speed Demon really deserves being singled-out among the mostly contentless world of popular music lyrics, but something about its triumphant musical transcendence over lyrical poverty always stuck with me.

THE IMAGINARY ARCHITECTURE OF LOVE

It's a stark white cube in a hollow glade
where the modern heart starts to salivate
and the windows of the large glass rooms
fill with condensation
but your rivers are preplanned waterfalls
and the moans only echo through the empty halls
of Frank Lloyd Wright stone sentinels
awaiting resoration...

The imaginary architecture of love

As you draft your dreams from memory
and the cries descend from the balcony
well the balustrades cannot withstand the strength
of modern gravity
and misery in its future form
needs no company...

The imaginary architecture of love.

NOTES:
When I wrote The Imaginary Architecture of Love I imagined a very minimalist modern house deep in the forest, a sort of retro kind of isolation from the 60s, a romanticized romance.  The starkness of the rooms kind of leads to a stark relationship.  Mostly I envision someone alone there, solitary, in the throes of an existential romantic crisis.  The beat and synth patches are sort of sensual and soothing, but there's also a coldness to the song... maybe it reflects the warmth and darkness of the forest and its voices in contrast to the smooth white cube home which houses some kind of artificial modern promise of contentment and efficiency, but in the end there's only an invisible and inexplicable void that eats away at one's reality.

Hmmmmm.  Maybe that's too depressing.  The song is also kind of funny to me, this chorus of Michael McDonalds in the woods, off in the distance, like the chorus in a Greek tradgedy, kind of standing by and reflecting and explicating the metaphysical aspects of the narrative.  I like this image of like 15 Michael McDonalds in suits out in the trees crooning their painful lament.


CHICAS EN LA DUCHA

ahhh Y corres la cortina como un matador
y subes la caliente a por el vapor
y frotas con fuerza la noche anterior
y cierras los ojos y cantas con el jabón

con hielo, carrajillo
but.. uh... que se jodan,
ay mi niño
porque dices la la
she say la la la
con sus Franquitos
o la la un poquito
la la la con mi papito (si)
no pasa nada, cada noche
no hay dinero pero
somos listos, somos ricos!

En la ducha las chicas canta lalala
y los chicos esperan por una oportunidad
chicos cantando como pa pa pa
y bailamos toda la noche solo para olvidar

Regressas a casa con las manos vacías
y pensando en lo que decías y hacías
y sientes que te undes pero no podrías
porque abres el agua y comienzas a cantar

my my baby [unintelligible...]

And your heart's pouring down like the water runnin'
and your mouth makes the sounds that your body's feelin'
and your lips talkin' bout all that lovin' lovin'
echo in your shower like an amphitheater (amphitheater...)

BABYLON

I don't listen to the radio
the signals and waves got nothin' to do with me
they ain't got nothin' to do with me

I'm here writin' a letter to my baby
cuz she's far away
but she's comin' to stay with me
she's comin' to stay with me

We'll take a train out of Babylon
up to where the water is clean
and there's something to live for
cuz the ghosts of the city don't sleep
or stop runnin' around,
lookin' for somethin I have found.

Rain don't fall when I'm thinkin' about my baby
River don't run when I'm layin' with my girl
Rain don't fall when I'm thinkin' about my lady

well I don't look into to their magazines
cuz all they are is a bunch of names
and I already know a bunch of names.
I ain't plannin' to live forever
and I sure ain't gonna take none of those names with me
I ain't taking nothin' with me.

We'll take a train out of Babylon
up to where the water is clean
and there's something to live for
cuz the ghosts of the city don't sleep
or stop running around,
lookin' for something I have found.

Rain gon stop when I'm thinking about my baby
River don't run when I'm laying with my girl

SUPERNATURAL

I'm seein furniture floating cross the room
frames falling from the wooden walls
doors are creaking like a heart that's beating back to life.
I seen a movement in the shadows,
something slide in my periphery.
voices singing, my phone is ringing but no one's on the line.

it's something supernatural
a phenomenal enrapture
honey am I losing my mind?

there's this something I've been feeling
passing in between of me and you.
are these ghosts that I've been seeing
only in my head or can you see them too?

she's moving like a million miles of fog
pushing out across the open plain.
other bodies in the room are silent, frozen in time.
she's got that long dark hair like a ghost veil
draping on a statue from another age
somehow I feel I've kissed those lips before in a former life

it's something supernatural
a phenomenal enrapture
honey am I losing my mind?

there's this something I've been feeling
passing in between of me and you.
are these ghosts that I've been seeing
only in my head or can you see them too?

I CAN'T SLEEP ALONE

Yes I can see you gettin' dirty on the dance floor,
rockin' them hips hard down on all fours
but there's tanks in the Caucasus and the bombs in the markets
we can talk about sex, but there's more money in rockets.
and yeah I know these are difficult topics,
and they won't get you wet so you're askin' me to stop it
and yes yes yes I still wanna pop it
and knock a leg outta socket

in this crazy world we live in
I can't sleep alone
and the worst ain't even over
but we gotta leave our children something to believe in
as the seas are rising, war keeps raging
I could be your cantilever, I could be your phone receiver
I could be your shelter from the bomb

and yeah I know these are difficult topics,
and they won't get you wet, and you're askin' me to stop it
and yes yes yes I still wanna pop it
and knock a leg outta socket

and we could do every single thing you dream about
and we can dance at least until we hear the gunfire
if the war don't quell all your physical desires
then just come and lay on down with me

in this crazy world we live in
I can't sleep alone
and the worst ain't even over
but we gotta leave our children something to believe in
as the seas are rising, war keeps raging
I could be your cantilever, I could be your phone receiver
I could be your shelter from the bomb

when the end-times come and the cities are on fire,
when your mind is growing weary and your body's gettin' tired
if the war don't quell all your physical desires
then just come and lay on down with me

in this crazy world we live in
I can't sleep alone
and the worst ain't even over
but we gotta leave our children something to believe in
as the seas are rising, war keeps raging
I could be your cantilever, I could be your phone receiver
I could be your shelter from the bomb.

your inhibitions disappear with the consequences.
