The National – trouble will find me. Full album Lyrics

Ayer se “liberó” en la red de redes el último album del grandioso grupo The National, “Trouble will find me” se llama y estará disponible “de verdad” el próximo 20 de Mayo.

Como es complejo el concepto de espera para los entusiastas de la música y el cine, muchos ya estamos rayando con lo que la banda de Ohio entregó. Por otro lado, como soy fan, mateo y estudioso, me gusta aprender de qué van los temas y engrupirme con todo el cuento del mensaje en las lyrics.

Así que hoy me puse a buscar las lyrics – asumiendo que siempre hay alguien que se da la lata antes, ya quedó en el pasado el tiempo que escribía en un cuaderno completo el “kiss me kiss me kiss me” the The Cure con tipografías loquillas y todo – El problema es que están desparramadas en esos sitios tan rascas y que te piden ochenta clicks y cerrar veinte popups que me motivé y como ayuda a la humanidad hice un compilado para el uso propio y del resto de la humanidad.

the national – trouble will find me

1. I should live in salt
Don’t make me read your mind
You should know me better than that
It takes me too much time
You should know me better than that
You’re not that much like me
You should know me better than that
We have different enemies
You should know me better than that
I should leave it alone but you’re not right
I should leave it alone but you’re not right

Can’t you write it on a wall
You should know me better than that
There’s no room to write it all
You should know me better than that
Can you turn the TV down
You should know me better than that
There’s too much crying in the sound
I should know you better than that
I should leave it alone but you’re not right
I should leave it alone but you’re not right

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

Think about something so much
You should know me better than that
Start to slide out of touch
You should know me better than that
Tell yourself your it’s all you know
You should know me better than that
Learn to appreciate the void
You should know me better than that

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind
I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

 

2. Demons
When I think of you in the city,
The sight of you among the sites.
I get this sudden sinking feeling,
Of a man about to fly.
Never kept me up before,
Now I’ve been awake for days.
I can’t fight it anymore,
I’m going through an awkward phase.
I am secretly in love with,
Everyone that I grew up with.
Do my crying underwater,
I can’t get down any farther.
All my drowning friends can see,
Now there is no running from it.
It’s become the crux of me,
I wish that I could rise above it.

But I stay down,
With my demons.
But I stay down,
With my demons

Passing buzzards in the sky,
Alligators in the sewers.
I don’t even wonder why,
Hide among the unbelievers.
Huddle with them all night long,
The worried talk to god goes on.
I sincerely tried to love it,
Wish that I could rise above it.

But I stay down,
With my demons.
I stay down,
With my demons
I stay down,
With my demons.
I stay down,
With my demons
I stay down,
With my demons

Can I stay here? I can sleep
on the floor
paint the blood and hang the palms,
On the door.
Do not think I’m going places anymore,
Wanna see the sun come up above New York.
Oh, everyday I start so great,
Then the sunlight dips.
Less I’ve learned,
The more I see the pythons and the limbs.
Do not know what’s wrong with me,
Sours in the cup.
When I walk into a room,
I do not light it up.
Fuck.

So I stay down,
With my demons
I stay down,
With my demons
I stay down,
With my demons
I stay down,
With my demons

 

3. Don’t swallow the cap
Pull out breaks behind the houses,
I don’t see what’s strange about this.
Tiny bubbles hang above me.
It’s a sign that someone loves me.
I can hardly stand upright,
Hit my head up on the light.
I have faith but don’t believe you,
This love ain’t enough to leave you.

Everything I love is on the table.
Everything I love is out to sea.

I have only two emotions,
Careful fear and dead devotion.
I can’t get the balance right.
Throw my marbles in the fight.
I see all the ones I wept for
All the things I had it in for
I won’t cry until I hear
Cause I was not supposed to be here.

Everything I love is on the table.
Everything I love is out to sea.
I’m not alone, i’ll never be.
Into the bone, i’ll never grieve.

I’m tired,
I’m freezing,
I’m dumb
When it gets so late I forget everyone.
I need somewhere to stay.
Don’t think anybody I know is awake.
Calm down,
It’s alright,
Keep my arms the rest of the night.
When they ask what do I see,
I see a bright white beautiful heaven hangin’ over me.

I’m not alone, i’ll never be.
Into the bone, i’ll never grieve.
And if you want, too seriously
To see me cry, don’t swallow the cap
Play, Let It Be, pat yourself on the back
Or, Nevermind. Too seriously

There’s a time to leave, there’s a time to think about
What I wanna say to the girls at the door.
I need somewhere to be
But I can’t get around the river in front of me.
Come down, it’s alright,
Lead my arms the rest of the night.
When they ask what do I see,
I see a bright white beautiful heaven hangin
Over me.

I’m not alone, Too seriously.
I’ll never be. Don’t swallow the cap.
Into the bone, Pat yourself on the back.
I’ll never grieve. Too seriously.
And if you want. Too seriously.
To see me cry, don’t swallow the cap.
Play, Let It Be. Pat yourself on the back
Or, Nevermind. Too seriously.

 

4. Fireproof
You keep my secrets
And I keep none
Wish I could go back
And keep some

You’re fireproof
Nothing breaks your heart
You’re fireproof
It’s just the way you are

You tell me you’re waiting
To find someone
Who isn’t so hopeless
But there’s no one

You’re fireproof
Nothing breaks your heart
You’re fireproof
How’d you get so far

You’re a needle in the hay
You’re the water at the door
You’re a million miles away
Doesn’t matter anymore

Jennifer you are not the only reason
My head is boiling and my hands are freezing
Jennifer you are not the only one
To sit awake until the wild feelings leave you

You’re fireproof
Nothing breaks your heart
You’re fireproof
It’s just the way you are

You’re fireproof
It’s what you always say
You’re fireproof
I wish was that way

 

5. Sea of Love
Before you say you love me Joe
How am I supposed to know?
When you go under the waves
What am I supposed to say?

I see people on the floor
Aspiring to the sea
Can’t stay here anymore
We’re turning into thieves

If I stay here trouble will find me
If I stay here I’ll never leave
If I stay here trouble will find me
I believe

Joe I’ll always think of you
As a kinder child who knew
This was never gonna last
Oh Joe you fell so fast

Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is a virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is a virtue
Don’t they?

I see people on the floor
Aspiring to the sea
Can’t stay here anymore
We’re turning into thieves

I see you rushing now
Tell me how to reach you
I see you rushing now
What’d Harvard teach you? (repeat x5)

 

6. Heavenfaced
I could walk out, but I won’t,
In my mind I am in your arms.
I wish someone would take my place,
Can’t face heaven all heavenfaced.
No one’s careful all the time,
If you lose me, I’m gonna die.

How completely high was I?
I was off by a thousand miles.
Hit the ceiling, then you fall,
Things are tougher than we are.
I could walk out, but I won’t,
In my mind I am in your arms.
I wish someone would take my place,
Can’t face heaven all heavenfaced.

Let’s go wait out in the fields with the ones we love.
Let’s go wait out in the fields with the ones we love.
Let’s go wait out in the fields with the ones we love.
Let’s go wait out in the fields with the ones we love.

She’s a griever, my believer
It’s not a fever, it’s a freezer
I believe her, I`m a griever now
She’s a griever, my believer
It’s not a fever, it’s a freezer
I believe her, I`m a griever now

Because we’ll all arrive in heaven alive
We’ll all arrive
Because we’ll all arrive in heaven alive
We’ll all arrive

 

7. This is the last time
Oh, when I lift you up you feel
Like a hundred times yourself
I wish everybody knew
What’s so great about you

Oh, but your love is such a swamp
You don’t think before you jump
And I said I wouldn’t get sucked in
Ahhhhahhh

This is the last time

Oh, don’t tell anyone I’m here
I got Tylenol and beer
I was thinking that you’d call somebody closer to you

Oh, but your love is such a swamp
You’re the only thing I want
And I said I wouldn’t cry about
Ahhhhahhh

This is the last time
This is the last time

We were so under the prime
We were so vacant and kind
We were so under the prime
We were so vacant
We were so under the prime
We were so out of our minds
We were so under the prime
We were so vacant

Oh, when I lift you up you feel
Like a hundred times yourself
I wish everybody knew
What’s so great about you

Oh, but your love is such a swamp
You don’t think before you jump
And I said I wouldn’t get sucked in
Ahhhhahhh

I won’t be vacant anymore
I won’t be waiting anymore
I won’t be vacant anymore
I won’t be waiting anymore
I won’t be vacant anymore
I won’t be waiting anymore

Jenny I am in trouble
Can’t get these thoughts out of me
Jenny I’m seeing double
I know this changes everything
[X2]

It takes a lot of rain in the cup
It takes a lot of pain to pick me up
It takes a lot of rain in the cup
It takes a lot of pain to pick me up

Baby you gave me pain and tears
Baby you left me sad and high

 

8. Graceless
Graceless
Is there a powder to erase this?
Is it dissolvable and tasteless?
You can’t imagine how I hate this
Graceless

I’m trying, but I’m graceless
Don’t have the sunny side to face this
I am invisible and weightless
You can’t imagine how I hate this
Graceless

I’m trying, but I’ve gone
Through the glass again
Just come and find me
God loves everybody, don’t remind me
I took the medicine when I went missing
Just let me hear your voice, just let me listen

Graceless
I figured out how to be faithless
But it will be a sheme to waste this
You can’t imagine how I hate this
Graceless

I’m trying, but I’ve gone
Through the glass again
Just come and find me
God loves everybody, don’t remind me
I took the medicine and I went missing
Just let me hear your voice, just let me listen

All of my thoughts of you
Bullets through rock and through
Come apart at the seams
Now I know what dying means

I am not my rosy self
Left my roses on my shelf
Take the wild ones, they’re my favorites
It’s the side effects that save us

Grace
Put the flowers you find in a vase
If you’re dead in the mind it will brighten the place
Don’t let them die on the vine, it’s a waste
Grace

There’s a science to walking through windows
There’s a science to walking through windows
There’s a science to walking through windows
There’s a science to walking through windows without you

All of my thoughts of you
Bullets through rock and through
Come apart at the seams
Now I know what dying means

I am not my rosy self
Left my roses on my shelf
Take the wild ones, they’re my favorites
It’s the side effects that save us

Grace
Put the flowers you find in a vase
If you’re dead in the mind it will brighten the base
Don’t let them die on the vine, it’s a waste
Grace

Grace
Put the flowers you find in a vase
If you’re dead in the mind it will brighten the base
Don’t let them die on the vine, it’s a waste
Grace

 

9. Slipped
I’m in the city you hated
My eyes are falling
Counting the clicks with the living dead
My eyes are red

I’m in the crush and I hate it
My eyes are falling
I’m having trouble inside my skin
I try to keep my skeletons in

Is it weird to be back in the south?
And can they even tell
That the city girl was ever there
Or anywhere

I’m having trouble inside my skin
I try to keep my skeletons in
I’ll be your friend
And a f*ck up and everything,
But I’ll never be
Anything you ever want me to be.

I keep coming back here where everything slipped
But I will not spill my guts out
I keep coming back here where everything slipped
But I will not spill my guts out

I don’t need any help to be breakable, believe me
I know nobody else who can laugh along to any kind of joke
I won’t need any help to be lonely when you leave me

It’ll be easy to cover
Gather my skeletons far inside
It’ll be summer in Dallas
Before I realize

I don’t want you to grieve
But I want you to sympathize (alright)
I can’t blame you for losing
Your mind for a little while (so did I)
I don’t want you to change
But I want you to recognize (that I)

It’ll be easy to cover
Gather your skeletons far inside
It’ll be summer in Dallas
Before you realize
That I’ll never be
Anything you ever want me to be

I keep coming back here where everything slipped
But I will not spill my guts out
I keep coming back here where everything slipped
But I will not spill my guts out

 

10 . I Need my girl
I am good, I am grounded
Davy says that I look taller
I can’t get my head around it
I keep feeling smaller and smaller
I need my girl
I need my girl

Remember when you lost your shit and
Drove the car into the garden
And you got out and said I’m sorry
To the vines and no one saw it
I need my girl
I need my girl

I’m under the gun again
I know I was the 45% of then
I know I was a lot of things
But I am good, I am grounded
Davy says that I look taller
I can’t get my head around it
I keep feeling smaller and smaller
I need my girl
I need my girl

There’s some things that I should never
Laugh about in front of family
In a week we’ll be together
Try to call you when I’m landed
I need my girl
I need my girl

Remember when you said I’m sorry
To the vines and no one saw it
I’ll try to call you from the party
It’s full of punks and cannonballers
I need my girl
I need my girl

I’m under the gun again
I know I was the 45% of then
I know I was a lot of things
But I am good, I am grounded
Davy says that I look taller
I can’t get my head around it
I keep feeling smaller and smaller
I need my girl
I keep feeling smaller and smaller
I need my girl
I keep feeling smaller and smaller

 

11. Humilliation
I survived the dinner
And the air went thinner
I retired to the briars by the pool
It gets so loud

If I die this instant
Taken from the distance
They will probably list it down
Among other things round town

Got my rings around me
I got baby to pound me
I see stars and go weak
My baby cries and lays me down

In the skies over black Venice
I see eyes of a white menace
The surprise of the week
Is that I never heard the sound

And all the L.A. women
Fall asleep while swimming
I got paid to fish ’em out
And then one day I lost the job

And I cried a little
I got fried a little
Then she laid her eyes on mine
And she said, “Babe, you’re better off”

I got my rings around me
I got baby to pound me
I see stars and go weak
My baby cries and lays me down

In the skies over black Venice
I see eyes of a white menace
The surprise of the week
Is that I never heard the sound

Tunnel vision lights my way
Leave a little life today

As a free-fall advances
I’m the moron who dances
ahhahhhahhhahhhahhahh
I was teething on roses
I was in guns and noses
ahhahhhahhhahhhahhahh

Under the withering white sky’s a humiliation
Under the withering white sky’s a humiliation

Tunnel vision lights my way
Leave a little life today
Tunnel vision lights my way
Leave a little life today

She wore blue velvet
Said she can’t help it
She wore blue velvet
Said she can’t help it
She wore blue velvet
Said she can’t help it

 

12. Pink Rabbits
I couldn’t find quiet
I went out in the rain
I was just soakin’ my head to unrattle my brain
Somebody said you disappeared in a crowd
I didn’t understand then
I don’t understand now

Am I the one you think about when you’re sitting in your faintin’ chair
Drinking pink rabbits?
Am I the one you think about when you’re sitting in your faintin’ chair
Drinking pink rabbits?

And everybody was gone
You were standin’ in the street ’cause you were tryin’ not to crack up
It wasn’t like a rain it was more like a sea
I didn’t ask for this pain it just came over me
I love a storm, but I don’t love lightning
All the waters coming up so fast, that’s right

Am I the one you think about when you’re sitting in your faintin’ chair
Drinking pink rabbits?
Am I the one you think about when you’re sitting in your faintin’ chair
Drinking pink rabbits?

And everybody was gone
I was standing in the street ’cause I was trying not to crack

I was solid gold
I was in the fight
I was coming back from what seemed like a ruin
I couldn’t see you coming so far
I just turn around and there you are

I’m so surprised you want to dance with me now
I was just getting used to living life without you around
I’m so surprised you want to dance with me now
You always said I held you way too high off the ground

You didn’t see me I was falling apart
I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park
You didn’t see me I was falling apart
I was a television version of a person with a broken heart
You didn’t see me I was falling apart
I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in a park
You didn’t see me I was falling apart
I was a television version of a person with a broken heart

And everybody was gone
You were standin’ in the street cause you were trying not to crack up
?
Now I only think about Los Angeles when the sun kicks out
Now I only think about Los Angeles when the sun kicks out

You said it would be painless
The needle in the dark
You said it would be painless
It wasn’t that at all
You said it would be painless
The needle in the dark
You said it would be painless
It wasn’t that at all (when the sun kicks out)

You said it would be painless
The needle in the dark (when the sun kicks out)
You said it would be painless
It wasn’t that at all

 

13. Hard to Find
I can see the glowing lights
I can see them every night
Really not that far away
I could be there in a day

I wonder if you live there still
I kinda think you always will
If I tried you’d probably be
Hard to find

What I feel now about you then
I’m just glad I can explain
You’re beautiful and close and young
In those ways we were the same

There’s a lot I’ve not forgotten
I let go of other things
If I tried they’d probably be
Hard to find

They can all
Just kiss off into the air
They can all
Just kiss off into the air

I don’t know why we had to lose
The ones who took so little space
They’re still waiting for the years
To cover what we can’t erase

I’m not holding out for you
I’m still watching for the signs
If I tried you’d probably be
Hard to find

They can all
Just kiss off into the air
They can all
Just kiss off into the air

 

Amanda Palmer TED : The art of Asking.

Hace un par de días que se realizó la  TED2013. La primera y podría denominarse “oficial” de las charlas de inspiradores tipos alrededor del universo, que nos entregan testimonios, ideas, críticas o sólo manifestasiones artísticas.

Este edición, independiente que el highlight musical era la charla de Bono, tenía harta inquietud de qué tenía que decir Amanda Palmer ( @amandapalmer ) – que seindo sincero la conozco principalmente por ser la esposa de Neil Gaiman – resulta que da la casualidad que es una artísta musical con un estilo medio cabaret punk y que debido a su posición frente a la manifestación artística ha basado los últimos tiempos de su carrera en apostar por la distribución gratuita, el crowd funding ( su campaña de kickstarter ha sido la más apoyada de la historia con 1.2 M de dólares para su proyecto ), la realización de pequeños eventos en “cualquier lugar y en cualquier momento” y en mantener una relación muy cercana con sus fans.

Este testimonio, cuenta cómo después de ser considerada un fracaso para la industria musical al vender sólo 25.000 albums, se enfocó a distribuir gratuitamente su música, enfocada a entregar su arte en cualquier lugar físico u online para que luego de un corto tiempo, lograr recaudar más de 1.2 Millones de dólares en una campaña de crowsoursing en Kickstarter con la suma un poco menor de 25.000 usuarios que invirtieron en su proyecto además de ser una de las artistas que sin ser considerada masiva, posee una base de fans gigantesca alrededor del mundo.

Resulta interesante el tratar de entender que a veces es mejor dejar de esperar que la gente pague por la música, si no más bien pedir por un apoyo sincero. Una mirada que para el “medio” pareciera digna de un mendigo que pide limosna por hacer alguna actividad, pero que al mismo tiempo según Amanda, provoca una relación infinitamente más cercana, involucrada y sincera entre artista y público. En donde se genera un nexo más íntimo y donde el mito de tener que llegar a “todo el mundo para vender más y más…” se convierte en innecesario y casi sin sentido.

Radiohead Live @Santiago

Odio las multitudes, odio estar en medio de un mar de gente que no conozco… pero era Radiohead, ni más ni menos, uno de los pilares de mis gustos musicales, tocando en Chile después de tantos años en donde sólo se mencionaba como una posibilidad sin confirmar…

27 de Marzo 2008, Pista Atlética Estadio Nacional

Las sensaciones que pasaron por mi cuerpo anoche fueron mixtas y aunque tenía claro que iba a recibir un remezón musical, no esperaba que me dejara en un estado de paz y tranquilidad con el universo infinito como Yorke y compañía lo lograron, escuchar los impecables de acordes de su repertorio, un setlist solidísimo y la fascinante puesta en escena fue un manjar audiovisual que todavía logro saborear…

El partir con Creep lo encontré acertadísimo, para mí fue una sensación de “ok. la tocamos… ahora a lo nuestro… “, disfrutar casi integramente de In Rainbows, intercalándo los sonidos de sus otros discos fue muy bien manejado, de estridentes guitarras a momentos de suaves pero intensísimos acordes fue un viaje que ver en vivo… es realmente memorable…
