 Plate 60: No hay quien los socorra, de Goya 1810s

[names of the songs and all lyrics are loosely translated, for the original lyrics in german please visit the german section of our homepage]

The Napoleonic army floods the Iberian Peninsula and leave a trail of blood behind. The spain make their own war, called Guerilla. But there is nothing new to this, except that the outer pain of Callot is replaced by the inner pain, the psychic pain of de Goya.

Personality 1

Come on, shoot him now, put this spawn to hell.

Pull the trigger, aim well, it´s hate that drives you.

Personality 2

No, just stop, don´t fill another grave.

Think as if it´s you. Let this poor soul rest.

Das Kriegsgeschehen verlagert sich nach Innen und es entbrennt ein wohl klassischer Dialog zwischen Gut und Böse. Schon mit den ersten Klängen des Liedes beginnt dieses Streitgespräch, eine Identität immerzu drängend und verführend. Gesungen wurde sie von Robert Isak und seine markanten Stimme bietet ein deutlichen Kontrast zu der fast weinerlich wirkenden von Τ.Φ. die einen Kontrapunkt des Rückhalts der Reflektion darstellt. Die Zerrissenheit des Charakters ist deutlich im Lied zu spüren, es wirkt dabei gehetzt und ruhelos und kulminiert zum ersten Mal im Chorus der eine weitere Identität einführt.

The scenary of war now happens on the inside and a classical dialogue between good and evil starts. Beginning with the first sounds, a dispute between the two personalities starts, with one urging and seducing the protagonist. Sung by Robert Isak the voice is powerfull and in pure contrast to the nearly crying voice of Τ.Φ. The mental fragmentation culminates in the chorus where another personality is introduced.

 CHORUS

Come on, do it! (Personality 1)

Just stop! (Personality 2)

The wheel keeps turning. (Personality 3)

Come on, do it! (Personality 1)

Just stop! (Personality 2)

The joice is only yours. (Personality 3)

Come on, do it! (Personality 1)

Just stop! (Personality 2)

Do as you please. (Personality 3)

Come on, do it! (Personality 1)

Just stop! (Personality 2)

Two souls in one temple. (Personality 3)

The third personality is the voice of a higher entity and is brought to life by Φ.Ω. She is in the contrary to the other two and is soft and calm. It ycould be the voice of reason, whcih points out autonomy. The question, arose by the first entry is now answered. But few moments later it disappears again and all logic is blown away.

Personality 1

Come on, just start. Shoot him now. Put him away!

Personality 2

No, please stop. Don´t do it. Let him leave!

The arguement of both ends with an plea of both of them. The first introduces the idea of fate and destiny and that you have to do what has to be done. You are not free but you are dedicated to a higher entity. It has to end like described in Strappado.

 Personality 1

Darkness will devour you,

it will bring you to your knees.

Just let loose, and be sure,

death will accompany you.

The other voice appeals to the mind and the concept of reflection, forgetting and starting over. It tries to break the ideas of the first voice by willpower.

Personality 2

Forget war as you know it,

you can withstand all of it.

Show yourself that you can do it,

the power lies within you.

War looses his material features and becomes an arguement within the mind. The batttles, the slaughtering, the murdering are still present but they leave scars on the psyche. The outer war becomes the inner war.
