Το 1971, ο John Lennon έγραψε το “How Do You Sleep”, απευθύνοντάς το στον Paul McCartney.
Το τραγούδι αποτέλεσε κλασική επιλογή – αφιέρωση σε όλους όσους έχουν κάνει κάτι για το οποίο θα έπρεπε να ντρέπονται. Τέτοιοι υπάρχουν κάμποσοι στη ζωή του καθενός, για να μη μιλήσουμε για τον “δημόσιο χώρο”.
25 χρόνια αργότερα, ήρθε το διαταραγμένο “sequel” του τραγουδιού, με την υπογραφή του Al Jourgensen. Το ομώνυμο track του μεγαλειώδους άλμπουμ των Ministry, Filth Pig.
Στο πικρό ερώτημα “how do you sleep?” η απάντηση εδώ είναι κατακεραυνωτική”: “he sleeps alright cause he’s a filth pig”… [Αφιερωμένο στους λασπάνθρωπους των media…]

In 1971, John Lennon wrote “How Do You Sleep,” addressing Paul McCartney. The song became a classic choice – dedication to everyone who has done something they should be ashamed of. There are quite a few such people in each of us’ lives, not to mention the “public space.”
25 years later, came the disrupted “sequel” of the song, signed by Al Jourgensen. The title track of Ministry‘s magnificent album, Filth Pig.
The answer here to the bitter question [“How do you sleep”] is thundering: “he sleeps alright cause he’s filth pig”… [Dedicated to the mudmen of the mainstream media…]

❝ I start out you’re in a daze and people start younger
In a thousand days and it’s getting overexposed
Then someone asks, “How do you sleep at night?”
With the borrowed dreams from a broken past
You keep runnin’ away don’t matter how fast
or long you always wind up there
Another thousand pileups in the ugly name of morality
Fucking ugly, some creepy guy keeps asking
“How the fuck do you sleep at night?”
With a frozen dream and a borrowed hope that died
Filth pig, filth pig
I sleep with both eyes open
Filth pig, filth pig
I keep chasing this tail but the tail gets bigger go figure
A thousand… keep the fires and flames alive
So how the fuck do I dream at night?
With the memories of a borrowed death, the guilty tide
Filth pig, filth pig
He sleeps with both eyes open
Filth pig, filth pig
He sleeps all right because he’s a
Filth pig ❞
