To bait us with love

ear

Caustic Love è amore corrosivo, pericoloso. Quando l’amore ti travolge non sai mai se è un bene o un male. Tutte le tue certezze vengono spazzate via. Prendi decisioni irrazionali. Diventi vulnerabile. Sei ossessionato. Puoi provare il più bell’orgasmo della tua vita e contemporaneamente avere il cuore spezzato.

Il Paolo sarà anche depresso e vede solo grigio ultimamente (come il cielo di ferro) perché probabilmente la sua Scozia non raggiungerà l’autonomia politica, ma è innegabile che la sua percezione dell’amore è perfetta. Tale e quale all’altra, dello scrittore Pedro Lemebel, però mischiata al sangue della più crudele dittatura cilena:

E con questo marchio di rispetto aveva imparato a convivere come chi impara a vivere con una belva, accarezzandola, ammansendo la sua ferocia, smussando il suo artiglio, abituandosi alle sue carezze violente, imparando a godere dei suoi graffi sessuali come unica fonte di affetto.

Stavo pensando a questo nei giorni di attesa, riempiendoli, per fortuna, con un’enorme dose di coraggio e di compiacimento per la nuova casa. Attesa che porterà quasi sicuramente al nulla. E mi chiedo perché doveva succedere questo, perché mettere in dubbio un intero decennio e buttare merda.  Ma io il grande coraggio l’ho dimostrato e non sono retrocesso di un solo millimetro. Caro S, potrai scappare e denunciarmi tutte le volte che vuoi ma l’integrità del mio sentimento è strutturale.

Tutto qui: Sarà un germoglio, sarà collera esplosiva, oppure una semplice carezza, ma l’amore non verrà intaccato da nulla. Spero che lo ricorderai e che quando dovrai sostenere le tue accuse false mi guarderai direttamente in faccia.

Iron Sky – Paolo Nutini

We are proud individuals living on the city
But the flames couldn’t go much higher
We find god and religions to
To bait us with salvation
But no one
No nobody
Can give you the power
To rise over love
And over hate
Through this iron sky
That’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom
Oh, that’s life
Left dripping down the walls
Of a dream that cannot breathe
In this harsh reality
Mass confusion spoon fed to the blind
Serves now to define our cold society
From which we’ll rise over love
Over hate
From this iron sky
That’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom
You just got to hold on!
You just got to hold on!
Oh oh oh oh
(To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed
The bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die
And the power they took from the people will return to the people
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men
Machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men!
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful
To make this life a wonderful adventure
Let us use that power!
Let us all unite!)
And we’ll rise over love
And over hate
Through this iron sky
That’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear
And into freedom
Into freedom!
From which we’ll rise over love
And over hate
Through this iron sky
That’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom
Freedom!Oh, from which we’ll rise over love
And over hate
Through this iron sky
That’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom
Freedom!
Freedom!
Rain on me!
Rain on me!
