Lied van de week: week 50 - 2017

Like a motherless child - Moby


Ik weet het, Moby roept gemengde reacties op en het is misschien zelfs een beetje controversieel om zijn nieuwe single meteen tot "lied van de week" te bombarderen. Maar geef de man een kans: deze single is best te pruimen, onder meer dankzij de vocale steun van Raquel Rodriguez. Wereldschokkend is hij dan wel niet, het gaat weer goed met Moby, zoveel is zeker. En om dat te bewijzen, brengt hij op 2 maart een nieuw album uit: Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt. De titel is geïnspireerd op een fragment uit Slaugherthouse 5 van Kurt Vonnegut.

Je kan het album hier alvast bestellen.

Lyrics:

[Raquel Rodriguez:]
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
So far from home


[Moby:]
This was life and this was safer
All was strange and always stranger
I laid in wait but so much later
I'm never safe from all this danger
The demon's eyes and demon satyr
I was bait but what would bait her?
Don't know my needs, don't know my ways so
I hide my face, no way to face her
This was loss, this was my name
This was my truth, this was no game
This was not hope, this was not sane
And from these broken places made
That was loss and this was later
I wanted less but nothing greater
I couldn't leave, I couldn't stay so
Like a motherless child


[Raquel Rodriguez:]
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
So far from home


[Moby:]
This was loss and this was later
Always hate but never hate her
I laid in wait but so much later
And never safe from all this danger
The demon's eyes, the demon satyr
I was bait, but what would bait her
Don't know my needs, don't know my ways so
I hide my face, no way to face her
This was loss, this was name
This was my truth, this was no game
This was not hope, this was not sane
And from these broken places made
That was loss and this was later
I wanted less but nothing greater
I couldn't leave, I couldn't stay
Like a motherless child


[Raquel Rodriguez:]
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
So far from home
So far from home
