This vicious cabaret de David J

Fuente.

La canción de hoy: "This vicious cabaret" es del autor David J. de la banda "Bauhaus" y fue compuesta para uno de los capítulos del cómic "V de Vendetta", de Alan Moore y David Lloyd.

Una gran canción con una extraña fuerza que habla de muchas grandes cosas.

Van dos días actualizando con algo de V... Hurm, el propio V no creía en las casualidades...

"They say that there's a broken light for every heart on Broadway.
They say that life's a game, then they take the board away.
They give you masks and costumes and an outline of the story
Then leave you all to improvise their vicious cabaret...
In no-longer-pretty cities there are fingers in kitties.
There are warrants, forms, and chitties and a jackboot on the stair.
Sex and death and human grime, in monochrome for one thin dime,
But at least the trains all run on time but they don't go anywhere.
Facing their Responsibilities either on their backs or on their knees
There are ladies who just simply freeze and dare not turn away
And the widows who refuse to cry will be dressed in garter and bow-tie
And be taught to kick their legs up high in this vicious cabaret.


At last! The 1998 Show!
The ballet on the burning stage.
The documentary see
Upon the fractured screen
The dreadful poem scrwled upon the crumpled page...
There's a policeman with an honest soul that has seen whose head is on the pole
And he grunts and fills his briar bowl with a feeling of unease.
But he briskly frisks the torn remains for a fingerprint or crimson stains
And endevours to ignore the chins that he walks in to his knees.
while his master in the dark nearby inspects the hands, with a brutal eye,
That have never brushed a lover's thigh but have squeezed a nation's threat.
But he hungers in his secret dreams for the harsh embrace of cruel machines
But his lover is not what she seems and she will not leave a note.


At last! The 1998 Show!
The Situation Tragedy
Grand Opera slick with soap
Cliffhangers with no hope


The water-colour in the flooded gallery...
There's a girl who'll push but not shove and is desperate for her father's love
She believes the hand beneath the glove maybe one she needs to hold.
Though she doubts her hosts moralities she decides she is more at ease
In the Land Of Doing What You Please than outside in the cold.


But the backdrop's peel and the sets give way and the cast gets eaten by the play
There's a murderer at the Matinee, there are dead men in the aisles
And the patrons and actors too are uncertain if the show is through
And with side-long looks await their cue but the frozen mask just smiles.
At last! The 1998 Show!
The torch-song no one ever sings
The curfew chorus line
The comedy divine
The bulging eyes of puppets strangled by their strings
There's thrills and chills and girls galore, sing-songs and surprises
There's something hear for everyone, (reserve your seat today)
There's mischief and malarkies but no queers or yids or darkies
Within this bastard's carnival, this vicious cabaret".

  2. Hey!

    No pasa nada, supongo que comenta porque quiere y como comenta libremente, puede comentar como le da la gana, así que no se preocupe, que en el antro no se mide los comentarios por su extensión.

    La canción es rara, pero me gusta y cuando lees "V de Vendetta" te das cuenta de como todas las cosas van coincidiendo y todo tiene varios sentidos que no pueden hacer otra cosa que hacer que te guste una de las mejoras obras de Alan Moore.

    En fin, me alegro por su comentario, cuidese mucho y cuidado con este vicioso cabaret.

    Yo. =)
