Gud er et koncept

Dagens kapitel af de smukkeste stykker musik jeg har hørt bliver leveret af John Lennon. En sang der er rørende i dens ligefremhed. Det er ikke mange udover Lennon der slipper afsted med det. En nervesitrende opgør med bl.a. Beatles myten. Gåsehuden er i hvert fald sikret for mit vedkommende.



God is a concept
By which we measure
Our pain
I'll say it again
God is a concept
By which we measure
Our pain

I don't believe in magic
I don't believe in I-ching
I don't believe in Bible
I don't believe in tarot
I don't believe in Hitler
I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in Kennedy
I don't believe in Buddha
I don't believe in Mantra
I don't believe in Gita
I don't believe in Yoga
I don't believe in kings
I don't believe in Elvis
I don't believe in Zimmerman
I don't believe in Beatles
I just believe in me
Yoko and me
And that's reality

The dream is over
What can I say?
The dream is over
Yesterday
I was the Dreamweaver
But now I'm reborn
I was the Walrus
But now I'm John
And so dear friends
You'll just have to carry on
The dream is over

Rent tekstmæssig er den genial ja... Men det er faktisk yderst sjældent jeg lyster at sætte den på...hmm.

Det er da også lidt sørgeligt at han har haft så meget at skulle have afløb for ift. Beatles - men, hey, hvis der kommer (i datid) endnu mere fantastisk musik ud af det, så er resten af verden jo heldige!
