Trappole per topi

Nell'album "Tallahasee" dei Mountain Goats, c'e' questo pezzo, si intitola "No children", il pezzo e' qui.
Suonato dal vivo, in un concerto, e' stato preceduto da qualche parola di spiegazione:

"It's a love song, it's about when two people love one another, but in the same time they come to the point they want to kill each other... what's love like then?"

Trovo il testo bellissimo:

No Children

I hope that our few remaining friends
Give up on trying to save us

I hope we come up with a failsafe plot
To piss off the dumb few that forgave us

I hope the fences we mended
Fall down beneath their own weight

And I hope we hang on past the last exit
I hope it's already too late

And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here
Someday burns down

And I hope the rising black smoke carries me far away
And I never come back to this town

Again in my life
I hope I lie
And tell everyone you were a good wife
And I hope you die
I hope we both die

I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow
I hope it bleeds all day long

Our friends say it's darkest before the sun rises
We're pretty sure they're all wrong

I hope it stays dark forever
I hope the worst isn't over

And I hope you blink before I do
Yeah I hope I never get sober

And I hope when you think of me years down the line
You can't find one good thing to say

And I'd hope that if I found the strength to walk out
You'd stay the hell out of my way

I am drowning
There is no sign of land
You are coming down with me
Hand in unlovable hand
And I hope you die
I hope we both die
