PAINTINGS BY EMMY VERSCHOOR

VOOR EMMY

Voor Emmy

Zijn het pluimen of bladeren
die ontsnappen uit je binnenste hartkamer
of is het de gloed van de kleur van kloppend bloed
hunkerend naar de stilte van rimpelloos
Water?

Als haar handen vloeibaar worden
krijgt de piano vleugels op het doek
Een boom verbijt haar vergezicht
In de diepte luisteren wortels verrukt
naar de zachte braille van haar bestaan
Tuinen hangen van de wolken
omlaag, omhoog groeien vreemde bloemen
uit een ingebeelde notenbalk.

zombiesemics


zombiesemics inspired by Nine Inch Nails Happiness in Slavery.

slave screams he thinks he knows what he wants
slave screams thinks he has something to say
slave screams he hears but doesn't want to listen
slave screams he's being beat into submission

don't open your eyes you won't like what you see
the devils of truth steal the souls of the free
don't open your eyes take it from me
I have found
you can find
happiness in slavery

slave screams he spends his life learning conformity
slave screams he claims he has his own identity
slave screams he's going to cause the system to fall
slave screams but he's glad to be chained to that wall

don't open your eyes you won't like what you see
the blind have been blessed with security
don't open your eyes take it from me
I have found
you can find
happiness in slavery

I don't know what I am I don't know where I've been
human junk just words and so much skin
stick my hands through the cage of this endless routine
just some flesh caught in this big broken machine 

2 opmerkingen:

  1. But the future is so uncertain, how can we accurately plan for it? SO MUCH UNCERTAINTY! But, also mystery, which makes it less... daunting, in a way.

    Maybe.

    Probably not.

  2. i've posted the lyrics, to perhaps give a better understanding behind the piece, "you need to start thinking more about your future," combined with the background of the birth certificate was meant to be a reflection of these two lines:

    slave screams he spends his life learning conformity
    slave screams he claims he has his own identity

    which mirror current issues with the "nym wars" as well as some of my own more personal issues i am delving into. =)
