Faithless: Musikvideo „Bombs“ erschüttert die Welt

02Dez06

Persönlich halte ich Faithless ja für Pop-Mist, allerdings bin ich mit den Jahren doch viel nachgiebiger geworden und kann mich gerne auch an Dingen erfreuen die den allgemeinen Pöbel ansprechen.
Umso mehr erfreue ich mich gerne an derart mutigen Pop-Mist der nicht davor zurück schreckt verweichlichte Realitätsagnostiker mit einem beliebt gewordenen Konsumgut zu konfrontieren. MTV wollte das seinen Zuschauern angeblich nicht zumuten und weigert sich das Video auszustrahlen.

Mir gefällt die Botschaft – sowohl die von Faithless als auch die MTV’sche – noch mehr mag ich die Gestaltung des Videos, dafür dass es Pop-Mist ist. Die Musik? Naja…

We think we’re heroes, we think we’re kings We plan all kinds of fabulous things Oh look how great we have become

Key in the door, the moment I’ve been longing for Before my bag hit the floor My adorable children rush up screaming for a kiss And a story they’re a gift to this world My only claim to glory I surely never knew sweeter days Blows my mind like munitions I’m amazed

So much heaven, so much hell So much love, so much pain So much more than I thought this world could ever contain So much war, so much soul Moments lost, moments go So much more than I thought this world can ever hold

We’re just children, we’re just dust We are small and we are lost And we’re nothing, nothing at all

One bomb, the whole block gone Can’t find me children and dust covers the sun Everywhere is noise, panic and confusion But to some another fun day in Babylon I’m gonna bury my wife and dig up my gun My life is done so now I got to kill someone

So much heaven, so much hell So much love, so much pain So much more than I thought this world could ever contain So much war, so much soul Moments lost, moments go So much more than I thought this world could ever hold

So much more than I thought this world could ever hold So much more than I thought this world could ever hold

So much heaven, so much hell So much love, so much pain So much more than I thought this world could ever contain So much war, so much soul Moments lost, moments go So much more than I thought this world could ever hold

  1. Faithless als harmlosen Popper abzutun, würde bedeuten ihn arg zu unterschätzen.
    Hier mein Lieblingssong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-H-ciJORlQ
    Und der Text:
    Mass Destruction (No Roots)

    [CHORUS]
    Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
    Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
    Whether you’re Soaraway Sun or BBC 1
    Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct
    You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian
    Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
    Whether inflation or globalization
    Fear is a weapon of mass destruction
    Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
    Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
    We need to find courage, overcome

    Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction (x3)

    My dad came into my room holding his hat
    I knew he was leaving,
    He sat on my bed told me some facts.
    Son, I have the duty, calling on me
    You and your sister be brave my little soldier
    And don’t forget all I told ya
    Your the mister of the house now remember this
    And when you wake up in the morning give ya momma a kiss
    Then I had to say goodbye
    In the morning woke momma with a kiss on each eyelid,
    Even though I’m only a kid
    Certain things can’t be hid
    Momma grabbed me
    Held me like I was made of gold
    But left her inner stories untold
    I said, momma it will be alright
    When daddy comes home, tonight

    [CHORUS]

    The skin under my chin is exploding again.
    I’m getting stress from some other children
    I’m holding it in.
    We taking sides like a politician
    And if i get friction we get to fighting.
    I’ll defend my dad he’s the best of all men
    and whatever he’s doing he’s doing the right thing.
    It’s frightening, but it makes me mad,
    Why do all of these people seem to hate my dad?
    And if that ain’t enough now i get these spots.
    I go to sleep every night with my stomache in knots
    And what’s more, i can hear momma next door
    Explore the radio for reports of war.
    And all we ever seem to do is hide the tears.
    Seems like daddy been gone for years.
    But he was right, now i’m geared up for the fight
    and he would be proud of me.
    [CHORUS]

    My story stops here, lets be clear.
    This scenario is happening everywhere.
    And you ain’t going to nirvana or far-vana,
    you’re coming right back here to live out your karma.
    With even more drama than previously, seriously.
    Just how many centuries have we been
    waiting for someone else to make us free?
    And we refuse to see
    that people overseas suffer just like we:
    Bad leadership and ego’s unfettered and free
    Who feed on the people they’re supposed to lead
    I don’t need good people to pray and wait
    For the lord to make it all straight.
    There’s only now, do it right.
    ‚Cos I don’t want your daddy, leaving home tonight

    [CHORUS]

  2. Faithless als harmlosen Popper abzutun, würde bedeuten ihn arg zu unterschätzen.[sic]
