Sonic Youth: Antenna

Surfing round re Cunningham I came across several Sonic Youth videos. These old masters have a new record out, called The Eternal. I love the intro to this. But the lyrics are awfully melancholy. Well, after all, “she’s far away”.

my darling cruises the streets for pleasure
skyscrapers in the blood red dawn
throbbing blood mind selfless creature
forever yours and then she’s gone
radios play nothing when she’s far away
tv antenna nothing gone to waste
radio transmitting nowhere it falls away,
she’s far away

every corner creeping panic
freak lighting in her abstract mind
rubber stamps and dreams of cashflow
wild blood ecstatic crime
radios play nothing when she’s far away
TV antenna rusting gone to waste
radio transmitting nowhere it falls away,
she’s far away

every day I feel more like her
street magic in the burning dawn
out for blood my selfless lover
forever yours and then she’s gone
radios play nothing when she’s far away
tv antenna nothing gone to waste
radio transmitting nowhere it falls away,
she’s far away
