Music For Frankensteins: Simple Joys, Beautiful Small Machines
In case you missed it, I am a big Bree Sharp fan.
Also in case you missed it, I am a big fan of her new “band,” Beautiful Small Machines.
They have a song out, now, with accompaniment by Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon.
I listen to this song, and I think….
I just do. I can’t help it.
The lyrics are, I think:
I was built from the cold of men
With the hands of Marquis de Sade, a cruel facade
If I could somehow spend another day with you
I’d pluck out the eyes of God
I would live in the time of owls
In the days when the world was green, my love machine
Though I bear no mark of war upon me now
Oh the things I’ve seen
Keep me far away from all the noise
I just caught the last boat out of Hell.
I don’t know the joys of simple joys
I’m not feeling well
But I’ll sit real still
If you don’t tell.
There’s a place for us, my dear.
Where the daughters of Orion sing.
Where a man can live without the cloud of fear
There’s a heartbeat in the wire
There’s a soul caught in the meat
The veins, the feet
We all expire
Anyway, that just screams to me, “Promethean.”
Which makes me want to go play that like, right now.
