Open Up (That’s Enough) - The Dead Weather
I apologize for the bad sound quality, as I need a new needle for my record player
Otherwise, this is for anyone who wanted to hear the track
I’ll upload Rough Detective in a couple of minutes
i miss being unbridled.
i’ve forgotten fury, roaring raw,
lungs aflame —
i am embers, unblazing.
i remember bloodied knuckles,
worn proud and gloveless —
hours of twilight
reserved for rage.
i think it might do me good
to once again tell time
Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it.
Think’st thou that I, who saw the face of God
And tasted the eternal joys of heaven,
Am not tormented with ten thousand hells
In being deprived of everlasting bliss?
I don’t know what this is, but I want all of it.
It’s from the Globe’s production of Doctor Faustus, with Arthur Darvill as Mephistopheles. And you can get it! It’s available on DVD and apparently also on Amazon Instant Video. It’s definitely worth it — the acting is terrific and the staging is utterly amazing.
Reblogging now that there are details attached, as well as information about how to see it for oneself. I cannot get over the brilliance of these costumes.
I love how the roles are reversed. Usually, the man is trying to persuade the woman to stay, and if you stop and look at the lyrics, it’s a touch creepy. When you reverse the genders you get a completely different dynamic.
