3WW
alt-J Lyrics


There was a wayward lad
Stepped out one morning
The ground to be his bed
The sky his awning

Neon, neon, neon
A blue neon lamp in a midnight country field
Can't surround so you lean on, lean on
So much your heart's become fond of this

Oh, these three worn words
Oh, let me whisper like the rubbing hands
Of tourists in Verona
I just want to love you in my own language

Well, that smell of sex
Good like burning wood
The wayward lad laid claim
To two thirsty girls from Hornsea
Who left a note when morning came

Girls from the pool say "Hi" (hi)
The road erodes at five feet per year
Along England's east coastline
Was this your first time?
Love is just a button we pressed
Last night by the campfire

Oh, these three worn words
Oh, that we whisper like the rubbing hands
Of tourists in Verona
I just want to love you in my own language

I often am just drawn back to this song

I think the video is about grievance. So at the beginning, the whole village and family are carrying the coffin and then there's a small group of people carrying her and then ultimately its just the man and his donkey, then just the man. I think this represents how over time, less and less people are grieving for her but her assumed lover in the story continues to grieve. I think the wolves represent people telling him to get over it and move on and the donkey represents his sanity which is broken by the wolves. He continues to try and push on but the grief that he is literally carrying on his back is too much for him and it results in his suicide. I'm probably completely off but that's just what I took from it. Fuck alt j is beautiful. Like a Mexican Romeo and Juliet

Bueno chavos, para la gente que no entiende este pedo, les recomiendo leer "La contracultura en México" de José Agustín xd el problema es que no sé si exista una traducción al idioma natal de quien lo quiera leer. Y bueno, seguramente ya lo habrán comentado pero la "bruja" encargada de preparar el ololiuhqui es María Sabina, quien fue visitada por artistas, científicos y antropólogos en los 60's, debido a su basto conocimiento y experiencia y rituales en este alucinógeno. . Real de catorce es la segunda mayor capital de este producto (mal conocido como peyote), luego de Huautla, ambas en Oaxaca. Espero le haya servido de algo a alguien y haya despertado un poco de interés sobre todo el contexto en real de catorce. Y ahuevo, sí, qué chingon poder comentar en mexicano un vídeo tan bergas como el de Alt-J, ahuevo banda! :v
