Lied van de week: week 23 - 2014

Lazaretto - Jack White


Jack White heeft een nieuw album klaarliggen voor ons, dat de komende week uitgebracht wordt. De titelsong is alvast de eerste single en het is weer smullen geblazen, duimen en vingers aflikken en meermaals op "repeat" klikken.

Je kan het album hier bestellen.

Lyrics:

My veins are blue and connected
And every single bone in my brain is electric


But I dig ditches like the best of 'em
Yo trabajo duro
Como en madera y yeso
Como en madera y yeso


And even God herself
Has fewer plans than me
But she never helps me out with my scams for free,
though she grabs a stick and then she points it at me
When I say nothing, I say everything
Yeah when I say nothing, I say everything


They threw me down in the lazaretto
Born rottin', bored rotten
Makin' models of people I used to know
Out of coffee and cotton


And all of my illegitimate kids have begotten
Thrown down to the wolves, made feral for nothin'
Quarantine on the Isle of Man and I'm trying to escape any way that I can, oh
Any way that I can, oh


I have no time left
Time is lost, no time at all, throw it in a garbage can
And I shake God's hand
I jump up and let her know when I can
This is how I'm gonna do it


They wanna blow down in prison
They're lighting fires with the cast of the masses


And like the dough I don't fall down
I'm so Detroit, I make it rise from the ashes
