Odias el mar porque sabe demasiado,

porque no sabe olvidar.

Porque,

dices,

nadie ha visto su sonrisa,

porque acoje en sus tripas

millones de ayeres y  maderas.

Odias su aliento porque habla de vida y  cementerios.

Odias su música porque no acaba,

porque no puedes imitarla.

Quieres ser el mar porque nunca pierde,

porque,

dices,

no hay nada más vivo.

C.D.G.

 

Llené el vaso cuando se vació mi casa.

Mi cabeza era una duna y los tragos me llevaron al balcón.

Abajo todo era tan de mentira como mis certezas.

La noche rasgaba los pasos de otros borrachos,

las aristas de esas risas fotocopiadas.

El calor abrazaba el descaro que da la inconsciencia.

Y el vaso ya sudaba en mis manos.

Di la espalda a la espalda de aquel día tumbándome en un nido de oraciones resentidas.

Y se me olvidó soñar.

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin’ high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We’ll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud ‘neath heated brow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I’m younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I’m younger than that now.

Girls’ faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I’m younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor’s tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
"Equality," I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I’m younger than that now.

In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I’d become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I’m younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I’m younger than that now.

Got no time for the corner boys, down in the street makin all that noise,
Dont want no whores on eighth avenue, cause tonight Im gonna be with you.

Cause tonight Im gonna take that ride, across the river to the jersey side,
Take my baby to the carnival, and Ill take you on all the rides, sing sha la
La la la la sha la la la.

Down the shore everythings alright, you with your baby on a saturday night,
Dont you know that all my dreams come true, when Im walkin down the street
With you, sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

You know she thrills me with all her charms, when Im wrapped up in my
Babys arms, my little angel gives me everything, I know someday that shell
Wear my ring.

So dont bother me cause I got no time, Im on my way to see that girl of
Mine, nothin else matters in this whole wide world, when youre in love with
A jersey girl, sing sha la la la la la la.

And I call your name, I cant sleep at night, sha la la la la la la.

Rain Dogs

(Big Time live version, 1988)

Inside a broken clock, splash the wine with all the rain dogs
Taxi, taxi, taxi we’d rather walk
Huddle(2) a doorway with the rain dogs
For I am a rain dog, too

I know how we danced and we swallowed the night
Her long hair black as a raven
I know how we danced and she whispered to me(3)
We’ll never be going back home

I know how we danced and we swallowed the night
Her long hair black as a raven
I know how we danced and she whispered to me
We’ll never be going back home

Oh, how we danced with the Rose of Tralee(4)
Her long hair black as a raven
I know how we danced and she whispered to me
We’ll never be going back home
