Timelord: “Dhalgren”, de Samuel R. Delany

(à la Cuaderno Célinegrado)

If I told the truth I’d like to live my life again
Walk around my youth in somebody else’s skin
One life’s not enough for all that we contain
Nothing’s going to save us now

Let’s go back in time and see what bridges we can burn
Kick over our tracks on the eternal return
Throw away the facts and figures – we never learn
Nothing’s going to save us now

Take me to the place where my decisions are relived
Give me answers to the question ‘What would have happened if ….. ‘
Beyond the third dimension, beyond the fourth and fifth
In a parallel universe

Hey DJ you’ve got it all wrong
No more golden greats, no more platinum songs
Put these frozen moments in the fridge where they belong
Nothing’s going to save us now

I don’t say that life’s not sad and death is not the end
Looks like you got typecast by a double-crossing friend
Looks like we were here before and we’ll be back again
In a parallel universe

No regrets at least not yet is all that we can say
Stand-ins for ourselves in life’s identity parade
Gone the crimes that you committed, gone the things you made
To a parallel universe

Hey DJ you’ve got it all wrong
No more golden greats, no more platinum songs
Put these master tapes back in the safe where they belong
We’ve got to live the hallelujah now

So let’s go

Walk the city streets with me and cross a thousand lives
Count the possibilities that shine in people’s eyes
Ask how many dreams we kill to keep our dreams alive
We’ve got to live the hallelujah now

Thank you for the memory, the curse you laid on me
Like a shooting star I burst into obscurity
Live this second first because the rest is history
Nothing’s going to save us now

Hey DJ you’ve got it all wrong
No more greatest hits, no more platinum songs
Put these little shits back in the ground where they belong
Nothing’s going to save us now

If I told the truth I’d like to live my life again
Walk around my youth in somebody else’s skin
One life’s not enough for all that we contain
We’ve got to live the halellujah now

So let’s go
