Lyric of the Week: Bring Me The Disco King

You promised me the ending would be clear
You’d let me know when the time was now
Don’t let me know when you’re opening the door
Stab me in the dark, let me disappear

Memories that flutter like bats out of hell
Stab you from the city spires
Life wasn’t worth the balance
Or the crumpled paper it was written on

Don’t let me know we’re invisible
Don’t let me know we’re invisible

Hot cash days that you trailed around
Cold cold nights under chrome and glass
Led me downriver of perfumed limbs
Sent me to the streets with the good time girls

Don’t let me know we’re invisible
Don’t let me know we’re invisible

We could dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire
Dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire

Feed me no lies
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Breathe through the years
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Bring me the disco king
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Dead or alive, feed me no lies
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the head of the disco king

Spin-offs with those who slept like corpses
Damp morning rays in the stiff bad clubs
Killing time in the ’70s
Smelling of love through the moist winds
Don’t let me know when you’re opening the door
Close me in the dark, let me disappear
Soon there’ll be nothing left of me
Nothing left to release

Dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire
Dance, dance, dance thru’ the fire
Tell me no lies
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Breathe through the years
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Bring me the disco king
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Breathe through the years
Dead or alive
Bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king

Dari lagu karya David Bowie, dirilis pada awal tahun 1990-an. Awalnya direkam untuk album Black Tie White Noise di tahun 1993 dan untuk album Earthling di tahun 1997, namun lagu ini tidak pernah dirilis hingga nongol di album Reality tahun 2003.
Namun yang didengar dalam minggu ini adalah versi remix dari Danny Lohner (mantan bassis/keyboardis Nine Inch Nails, dengan kolaborasi Maynard James Keenan-nya Puscifer, Milla Jovovich, Josh Freese dan John Frusciante untuk album soundtrack Underworld tahun 2003. Remix ini lebih fresh dari versi aslinya. Perumpamaannya… seperti mendengar Kurt Cobain membawakan “The Man Who Sold The World”-nya Bowie yang lebih “terasa” daripada yang dibawakan oleh Bowie sendiri…
