Δυο δεκαετίες πριν τη διάσημη θρηνωδία των Radiohead, υπήρχε ένα άλλο “Creep”, εκείνο των Damned από το δεύτερό τους άλμπουμ. Μπορεί να μην έκανε την καριέρα του ομότιτλού του. Αλλά το αίσθημα που το διέπει μας είναι πολύ πιο χρήσιμο στην παρούσα περίσταση.

Two decades before Radiohead’s famous lament, there was another “Creep”. This one, from The Damned’s second album. It didn’t make the career its namesake did. But the feeling that governs it is much more useful for us in this circumstance.


❝ Think you’re pretty mean, acting sixteen
Looking real tough, ain’t anger enough
With your harlem clothes, try and act with your pose
Well if I look in your eyes just run and hide
You can’t, you can’t fool me(x2)
Now the actions begun you ain’t scaring no-one
Just back in a quick, you only make me feel sick
Just go on home, leave us alone
Go and beat up your cat, I bet, I bet you’re good at that
(2nd verse)



Stay Safe!
