Annotationen

Da Gegenwartsmusik oft so anspruchslos ist, obwohl viele der jungen Leute Musik studiert haben, fragt man sich zuweilen, wo die Musik bleibt, die harmonisch, melodisch und rhythmisch interessant ist. Nun, hier ist sie. WILLOW ist die Tochter von Will Smith, dem Rapper und Schauspieler. Sie ist bereits seit jahren als Musikerin unterwegs. Ihr neuer Song «Symptoms of Life» kommt in einem 7-4-Takt, mit jazzigen Cluster-Akkorden (Am7(♭13), Fmaj9(#11), Gsus4(add13), Dm11) und einem Tupfer im phrygischen Modus. Früher hat man so etwas «Prog» genannt. Nun ist dieser Song auf interessante Weise sehr unruhig, klingt aber wie eine Hybride aus R'n'B und Pop. «Fusion», um noch einen Begriff aus der Vergangenheit zu gebrauchen. Erstaunlich eingängig.

Lyrics

[Verse 1] Pushing and peeling myself out of my disguise Looking at you, now I'm wondering, who am I? If I could try to take you back, I couldn't define [Pre-Chorus] Feeling absence of time Knowing all is decided There's nothing here left to find The story's all in my mind [Verse 2] Pushing and peeling the layers that cover my mind Looking into the shadow, now I notice the light Magic is real, when you see it inside, you decide [Pre-Chorus] It's like a snake shedding skin Creating life to begin And all you know has vanished again Transcending virtue and sin [Chorus] Feast my eyes on lower things while bеauty is a symptom of life Gotta decide if I'm gonna see it, why? Fеast our eyes on lower things when suffering is craving the light Gotta decide how we're gonna heal it, why? Feast my eyes on lower things while beauty is a symptom of life Gotta decide if I'm gonna see it, why? (Why do we?) Feast our eyes on lower things when suffering is craving the light Gotta decide how we're gonna heal it, why? Yeah Gotta decide how we're gonna feel it, I'm (Desperately) Trying to find out [Bridge] Gotta know that life is fragile Gotta know, but gotta go I stood in awe inside a temple of a God I didn't know wanna go Find the one who understands Why we wait for pain to change us? To let me know that life is fragile [Pre-Chorus] It's like a turtle in sand Making way to the ocean Almost meeting the end Because the birds are in motion, oh [Chorus] Feast my eyes on lower things while beauty is a symptom of life Gotta decide if I'm gonna see it, why? Feast our eyes on lower things when suffering is craving the light (I know we) Gotta decide how we're gonna heal it, why? Feast my eyes on lower things while beauty is a symptom of life Gotta decide if I'm gonna see it, why? (Why do we?) Feast our eyes on lower things when suffering is craving the light Gotta decide how we're gonna heal it, why? Yeah Gotta decide how we're gonna feel it, I'm (Desperately) Trying to find out
