Annotationen

Dietmar Dath arbeitet in einem Beitrag zu diesem Song die Widersprüche dieses Songs zwischen Metrum und Artikulation, zwischen Schrift und Gesang heraus. In diesem Widerspruch zeigt sich Subjektivität: «Der Widerspruch, der sich so im stroboskopartig blitzenden Selbstvollzug des Stückes immer wieder [...] auftut und wieder schließt, ist zuletzt die mitgeteilte, gelebte, gefeierte, hyperagile, wortwache und feuertänzerische Subjektivität der Dichterin als Vier-Minuten-Kunstflackern ihres unwiderstehlich eitlen Herzens.»
Der Titel wurde als Abspannmusik zum Fantasyfilm aus der Hunger Games-Reihe eingesetzt.

Lyrics

[Verse 1] I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm And the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones It keeps my veins hot, the fire's found a home in me I move through town, I’m quiet like a fight And my necklace is of rope, I tie it and untie it [Pre-Chorus 1] And now people talk to me, but nothing ever hits home People talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes I’m done with it (ooh) [Chorus] This is the start of how it all ends They used to shout my name, now they whisper it I'm speeding up and this is the Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart We’re at the start, the colors disappear I never watch the stars, there’s so much down here So I just try to keep up with them Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart [Verse 2] I dream all year, but they're not the sweet kinds And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time [Pre-Chorus 2] And now people talk to me I'm slipping out of reach now People talk to me, and all their faces blur But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison And I'm locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me I’m done with it (ooh) [Chorus] This is the start of how it all ends They used to shout my name, now they whisper it I'm speeding up and this is the Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart We’re at the start, the colors disappear I never watch the stars, there’s so much down here So I just try to keep up with them Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart [Outro] And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat Sparking up my heart And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat
