9-11-sang fra Portland, Oregon

FAR AWAY

7:30 am nurse the baby on the couch
then the phone rings
“Turn on the T.V.”
watch the world explode in flames
and don’t leave the house
And the sky overhead
is silent, waiting
Clear blue holds its breath
And the heart is hit
in a city far away
but it feels so close
Don’t breathe the air today
Don’t speak of why you’re afraid
(Standing here on a one way road
and I fall down,
no other direction for this to go
so we fall down)
WHY CAN’T I GET ALONG WITH YOU?
And the president hides
while working men rush in
To give their lives
I look to the sky
and ask it not to rain
On my family tonight

  1. Sleater-Kinney eksisterer ikke mere. De spillede deres sidste koncert i august i år. Læs mere på

    Jeg var nu aldrig så vild med dem; hvis man skulle tro deres musik, var der tale om tre kvinder, som man ikke havde lyst til at komme op at skændes med. (Til gengæld bliver der nok altid vasket op efter hvert måltid af den samlede husstands øvrige medlemmer, hjemme hvor de bor.)
