remnant 38: “I still owe money to the money to the money I owe”

leave a comment »

Seems both inspiring and disheartening that Matt Berninger, lead singer and lyricist of The National, understands inequity—and political leaders and much of the U.S. public don’t:

“Bloodbuzz Ohio,” The National

Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I’ll lift my shirt up
Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I’ll lift my shirt up

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I never married but Ohio don’t remember me

Lay my head on the hood of your car
I take it too far
Lay my head on the hood of your car
I take it too far

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I’m on a bloodbuzz
Yes I am
I’m on a blood…buzz
I’m on a bloodbuzz
God I am
I’m on a blood…buzz

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I never married but Ohio don’t remember me

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I’m on a bloodbuzz
Yes I am
I’m on a blood…buzz
I’m on a bloodbuzz
God I am
I’m on a blood…buzz
