Ένα πρώιμο electro αριστούργημα από το συγκρότημα του Phil Oakey, ανησυχητικά σύγχρονο, ως μουσική και ως στίχος…

An early electro masterpiece from Phil Oakey’s band, alarmingly modern, both music and lyrics

❝ Nine o’clock flight from Hawaii
The Trident is just touching down
We’re waiting here on the tarmac
McGarrett is wearing a frown
He’s here to help with a problem
A blood-spattered curse on our land
Please cast your eye over this map, sir
This business is quite out of hand
The circus of death is approaching
Its pathway is painted in red
Before it the frightened and helpless
Behind it a trail of the dead
The narcotic that forges their union
Is a substance known only to one
To the clown it is known as “Dominion”
It’s a secret that he’ll give to none
The drug which gives the clown power
Means the circus can never be stopped
And his dream can go on unhindered
Till the last human being has dropped
Spare me and my family, I’ve done you no wrong
Go away, please let us be, I’ve known you for too long ❞

Enjoy!


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
