Imitation of life

Charades pop skill
Water hyacinth
Name by a poet
Imitation of life

Like a koi in a frozen pond
Like a goldfish in a bowl
I don’t want to hear you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that’s Hollywood
Come on, come on
No-one can see you try

You want the greatest thing
The greatest thing since bread came sliced
You’ve got it all
You’ve got it sized

Like a Friday fashion show
Teenager cruising in the corner
Trying to look like you don’t try

That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that’s Hollywood
Come on, come on
No-one can see you try

No-one can see you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That’ freezing rain, that’s what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry

This sugar cane, this lemonade
This hurricane, I’m not afraid
Come on, come on
No-one can see me cry

This lightning storm, this tidal wave
This avalanche, I’m not afraid
Come on, come on
No-one can see me cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That’s who you are, that’s what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That’s who you are, that’s what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry

In to the galaxy

Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
An apparition
Of twilight visions
A final mission
Of superstition
Reactivated
Now automated
Appropriated
Investigated
Global tectonics
Psycho robotic
Plasma bionic
Bred supersonic
A new translation
For integration
Your invitation
G-L-O-R-I-A
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Hyper creation
Or reinvention
Love and affection
Gaining attention
United Nations
Interrelations
A declaration
Of hypertension
Emerging summits
Pre-emptive plummet
We drop atomic
To shooting comets
The controversial
Ultra commercial
Now universal
G-L-O-R-I-A
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Floating to the edge of the world
Floating to the edge of the sea
Floating off the edge of the ocean
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Out into the galaxy
Letra e música de Midnight Juggernauts

Teen Spirit

Há bandas que envelhecem mal. Como um vinho verde que se deixa pasar uns anos e se transforma em algo turvo e avinagrado. Os Nirvana foi uma das minhas bandas prediletas (logo que o seu álbum «Nevermind» chegou a Portugal corri logo a comprar um CD no longínquo ano 1991) e é disso exemplo – o grunge não resistiu bem ao passar das modas e ecoa muito mal passado estes anos todos… Porém a música e o video clip de Smell like teen Spirit ainda hoje me fazem as tripas entrarem em ebulição e o coração a bombar a um passo de desatar ao saltos como quando tinha 18 anos.
