Músicas que são livros: Radiohead

Artist/Song: Radiohead – Dollars & Cents (from 2001’s Amnesiac)

Book: Naomi Klein’s No Logo

Lyric: “We are the dollars and cents/And the pounds and pence/And the mark and the yen/And yeah were gonna crack your little souls.”

 Dollars and Cents

There are better things to talk about
Be constructive
Bear witness
We can use
Be constructive
With your blues

Even when its only warnings,
Even when you’re talking war games.

Oh Why don’t you quiet down?
(Maybe I want peace and honesty)
Why don’t you quiet down?
(Maybe I want to live in the children’s land
And you know maybe, maybe I)
Why don’t you quiet down?
(Maybe I’ll wander the promised land
I want peace and honesty)
Why don’t you quiet down?
(I want to live in the promised land
And maybe wander the children’s land)
Quiet down! (Yeah, and there, there we can free)”

You don’t live in a business world,
you never go out and you never stay in.
We all have goals in a liberal world,
living in times when I can stand it babe.

It’s all over baby’s crying,
its all over baby.
I can see out of here.
All over the planets dead,
all over the planet, so let me out of here.
All over the world.

Oh Why don’t you quiet down?
(Maybe I want peace and honesty)
Why don’t you quiet down?
(Maybe I want to live in the children’s land
And you know maybe, maybe I)
Why don’t you quiet down?
(Maybe I’ll wander the promised land
I want peace and honesty)
Why don’t you quiet down?
(I want to live in the promised land
And maybe wander the children’s land)
Quiet down! (Yeah, and there, there we can free)”

we are the DOLLARS & CENTS
and the PoUNDS and Pence
the MARK and the YEN
We are going to crack your little skulls
We are going to crack your little souls

we are the DOLLARS & CENTS
and the PoUNDS and Pence
and the PoUNDS and Pence
We are going to crack your little skulls
We are going to crack your little souls

We are the dollars and cents
