W.H. Auden - The Love Feast

In an upper room at midnight
See us gathered on behalf
Of love according to the gospel
Of the radio-phonograph.

Lou is telling Anne what Molly
Said to Mark behind her back;
Jack likes Jill who worships George
Who has the hots for Jack.

Catechumens make their entrance;
Steep enthusiastic eyes
Flicker after tits and baskets;
Someone vomits; someone cries.

Willy cannot bear his father,
Lilian is afraid of kids;
The Love that rules the sun and stars
Permits what He forbids.

Adrian's pleasure-loving dachshund
In a sinner's lap lies curled;
Drunken absent-minded fingers
Pat a sinless world.

Who is Jenny lying to
In her call, Collect, to Rome?
The Love that made her out of nothing
Tells me to go home.

But that Miss Number in the corner
Playing hard to get. . . .
I am sorry I'm not sorry . . .
Make me chaste, Lord, but not yet.

Bom fim de semana.

From the album Break It Yourself. Get it on iTunes at http://smarturl.it/andrewbird.

 

Go ahead and congratulate yourself
Give yourself a hand,
A hand is yours
In the harden hours, and so
And here it heals itself, it's too much
And you're getting too close
You're getting too close
You're getting to close to your soul

 

You've done the impossible now
Took yourself apart
Made yourself invulnerable
No one can break your heart
So you break it yourself

 

Bringing your own, break it yourself
Bringing your own, break it yourself
Bringing your own, but break it yourself
Bringing your own, but break it yourself
Bringing your own,

Go ahead and re-eyeoneye yourself
Give yourself a hand,
A hand is yours
And you go ahead and bring it all
Go ahead and stretch it all
Go ahead and read inside

 

Dare to protest it makes this
Boy and girl, two eyes
Too rigid, all the sadness
A hundred stories high

 

And you re-eyeoneyeze
And it's eyeoneyeze-eyeoneyeze-eyeoneyeze
All this time it took to realize
That you could use some help

 

Bringing your heart, breaking the shell
Bringing your heart, breaking the shell
Bringing your heart, but break it yourself
Bringing your heart, but break it yourself

 

Give yourself a hand, a hand is yours
Go ahead and wear it out
And you go ahead and stretch it out
And you go ahead and wear it inside out
And it's eyeoneye-oneye-oneye
And it's eyeoneye-oneye-oneye
