Mercury
Bloc Party Lyrics


My mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde

Mercury's in, Mercury's in, Mercury's
In retrograde

This is not the time, the time to start a new love
This is not the time, the time to sign a lease
Try not to worry about what's forgotten
Try not to worry about what's been missed
Scars on shins and scars on my knuckles
Today I woke up in a basketball court
Jonjo's in Sydney and he ain't returning
I'm sitting in Soho trying to stay drunk

In any bar in the world
From Silverlake to Williamsburg
You could pick another stranger
And fall in love

My mercury's in retrograde
Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde

This is not the time, the tie to start a new love
This is not the time, the time to sign a lease
Try not to worry about what's forgotten
Try not to worry about what's been missed
Bleeding gums and veins protruding
You're starting to hate all of your clothes
Neumayr's in LA and she ain't returning
I'm sleeping with people I don't even like

In any bar in the world
From Silverlake to Williamsburg
You could pick another stranger
And fall in love

My mercury's in retrograde
Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde
Mercyry's in, mercury's in retrograde

When I saw you last night
I wanted to say, run away with me
Away from these cynics
That this could be the start of
Something truly real
But all that I could say was "hey"
Was hey
Was hey
Was hey

My mercury's in retrograde
Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde
Mercyry's in, mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde
Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde
Mercyry's in, mercury's in retrograde.

Mercury is in retrograde. Oh hello coronavirus!

Alexandra Brune

I still think this is a masterpiece of art. It's unlike any of the music I normally listen to. According to the quasi-science of astrology, mayhem breaks loose when mercury goes into retrograde. I love how the music speaks to the madness of the human endeavor in general, while the video shows what happens when we abdicate reason. The madness of war has to be the image of mercury being in retrograde (allegorically). Or as Shakespeare put it: 'hell is empty and all the devils are here' .

The more you learn about planetary energies and motions in space and how they relate to human activities, astrology becomes more truth than fiction. Mercury's in Retrograde now

I still think it sounds like a self conscious rip off of Flowers of Romance by Public Image Ltd but with a lot less imaginative lyrics.
