Merecen, Grosos, Mirarlos Todos--------------éstos videos lo

“Muy probablemente todos los lectores hayan visto todos éstos videos, pero tal vez a algún lector se le haya escapado algún video.”[1]


You were a child Crawling on your knees toward it
Making momma so proud, But your voice is too loud

We like to watch you laughing,
You pick the insects off plants
No time to think of consequences

Control yourself: Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted To be haunted

The water is warm But it’s sending me shivers
A baby is born Crying out for attention

The memories fade Like looking through a fogged mirror
Decision to decisions are made and not bought,
But I thought this wouldn’t hurt a lot.
I guess not

Control yourself: Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted To be haunted


I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the prime of my life.
Let's make some music, make some money, find some models for wives.
I'll move to Paris, shoot some heroin, and fuck with the stars.
You man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars.

This is our decision, to live fast and die young.
We've got the vision, now let's have some fun.
Yeah, it's overwhelming, but what else can we do.
Get jobs in offices, and wake up for the morning commute.

Forget about our mothers and our friends: We're fated to pretend
To pretend

I'll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms
I'll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world
I'll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home
Yeah, I'll miss the boredom and the freedom and the time spent alone.

There's really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten, life can always start up anew.
The models will have children, we'll get a divorce
We'll find some more models, everything must run it's course.

We'll choke on our vomit and that will be the end
We were fated to pretend
To pretend



[1] Así abría el paragüas Cali, en su publicación Merecen, Grosos, Mirarlos Todos éstos videos lo, publicado por su blog acerca del no ser, el 28 de septiembre del 2009. Continuaba “Son todos de MGMT, creo que es una banda famosa… Ah: no se preocupe, lector, por la ‘mala calidad’ de la imagen. Es así, es la mejor. Creo que incluso significa algo. Por si algún lector se llegara a aburrir –sólo por si acaso- dejo también las letras abajo. Lo ideal es poner las letras en una ventanita chiquita, y en otra ventana, grande, lo más estirado posible, ver el video. Las letras están solamente en ingles; mis disculpas.
