Nel concept album “The Suburbs

The Suburbs

Un concept album che forse andrebbe per intero contribuito sulle CCG.
L’ambientazione è la periferia americana, i suoi inquietanti sobborghi, il tema è il passaggio dall’adolescenza all’età adulta e la scoperta drammatica (che avviene di notte, mentre di giorno regna l’inconsapevolezza) di un mondo senza speranza, immerso nella violenza, nel sopruso, nella morte.



Siete arrivati proprio in tempo. Che cos’è quella fila? Sono dei provinanti di un reality show oppure stanno aspettando di entrare ad un concorso pubblico? O forse è la fila delle casse di un centro commerciale? Comunque sono in fila, e mi sa che tocca anche a voi.
(“Arcade Fire, The Suburbs: le periferie dell’anima”, di Emanuele Binelli su RockLab)
So I wait my turn, I’m a modern man
And the people behind me, they can’t understand
Makes me feel like
Makes me feel like
So I wait in line, I’m a modern man
And the people behind me, they can’t understand
Makes me feel like
Something don’t feel right

Like a record that’s skipping, I’m a modern man
And the clock keeps ticking, I’m a modern man
Makes me feel like
Makes me feel like

In my dream, I was almost there
Then they pulled me aside and said, "You’re going nowhere"
They say we are the chosen few, but we waste it
And that’s why we’re still waiting

On a number from the modern man
Maybe when you’re older you will understand
Why you don’t feel right
Why you can’t sleep at night now

In line for a number but you don’t understand
Like a modern man
In line for a number but you don’t understand
Like a modern man

Oh, I had a dream I was dreaming
And I feel I’m losing the feeling
Makes me feel like
Like something don’t feel right
I erase the number of the modern man
Wanna break the mirror of the modern man
Makes me feel like
Makes me feel like

In my dream, I was almost there
Then they pulled me aside and said, "You’re going nowhere"
I know we are the chosen few, but we waste it
And that’s why we’re still waiting

In line for a number but you don’t understand
Like a modern man
In like for a number but you don’t understand
Like a modern man
If it’s alright
Then how come you can’t sleep at night?
In line for a number but you don’t understand
Like a modern man

I’m the modern man
I’m the modern man
I’m the modern man
I’m a modern man
