  • A Germ Of Something (12/29)

    On Listening To Nine Inch Nails



    Angst is just awkward, an anxious state

    A misplaced foot and Germanic A

    Full of fear and trembling and emotions displaced

    A Mitteleuropa mark from a time and a place



    Aloha is Hawaiian and thus hard to say

    Too many vowels, they get in your way

    You need a uke or a slack key guitar

    The far northern topics is where you are



    A drone doesn't work if it's strictly alone

    It must be detuned with a beat in its own

    Overtones and modes and the root which is home

    It's a solid yet fragile harmonic zone



    Distortion distortion piled on top

    Bitcrushed or boogex or amps that won't stop

    Communist industry, factory grind

    The whine of a saw on the grate of your mind





    Now, off to go ski - happy New Year!

    Do you mean "tropics", or is there a singular/plural thing going on?

      I don't think I can edit it on my phone, but yeah, tropics.



      Either way, that's a weak line.

          Not sure what that means, but an improvement on whatever is there now.

              I feel angst

              War between the classes

              I feel angst

              Wanna **************** my mother

              I feel angst

              I lost my archetype

              But underneath it all you know

              You can't believe the hype

                The fruits of his labor

                Are taken from the worker

                The profit and the ease

                Are taken by another

                The specter in my dreams

                Looks just like my father

                The power of the message

                Makes you just like any other

                  This is impressive writing. The metamorphosis from the original to the shortened lyric is great.

                  I'm impressed by the way the meaning is retained in an abbreviated form.



                  Leaving meaning aside for the moment, I couldn't help but notice the following possibility lyric-wise (in a totally not taking itself seriously sorta way):



                  I feel angst

                  War between the classes

                  I feel gangsta

                  Wanna **************** my mother

                  I feel djangsta

                  I lost my archtop

                  But underneath your solid body

                  I'll believe your hype
