Ø, leider.

Alles andere als Durchschnitt, mit Verlaub. Eine melancholische Melodie, die aber in sich sehr stimmig komponiert ist. Ein Bass, dessen Linie sehr ausgeklügelt komponiert und brilliant gespielt ist. Treffend und betroffen machend ist allerdings der Text, der von einem Kind handelt, das wohl missbraucht wurde und nun eine "böse Weisheit" erlangt hat:

"Mother, the doctor knows something is wrong
Cause my body has strange information
He's looked in my eyes and knows I'm not a child
But he doesn't dare ask the right question

Mother my friends are no longer my friends
And the games we once played have no meaning
I've gone serious and shy and they can't figure why
So they've left me to my own daydreaming

What price to pay for bad wisdom
What price to pay for bad wisdom
Too young to know, too much too soon
Bad wisdom, bad wisdom

Mother, you've taught me the laws are so fine
If I'm good that I will be protected
I've fallen through the crack and there's no getting back
And I'll never trust whoever gets elected

Mother, your eyes have gone suddenly cold
And it wasn't what I was expecting
Once I did think that I'd find comfort there
And instead you've gone hard and suspecting

What price to pay for bad wisdom
What price to pay for bad wisdom
Too young to know, too much too soon
Bad wisdom, bad wisdom

Mother, I'm cut at the root like a weed
Cause there's no one to hear my small story
Just like a woman who walks in the street
I will pay for my life with my body

What price to pay for bad wisdom
What price to pay for bad wisdom
Too young to know, too much too soon
Bad wisdom, bad wisdom"

Durchschnittlicher Song? Wahrhaftig nicht mehr, wenn man den Text kennt und der Melancholie im Song nachspürt, der ein Walzertakt zugrunde gelegt wurde, der noch an das fröhliche Karussell aus der zerbrochenen Kindheit gemahnt, das nun - wie im Text gesagt wird - keinen Sinn, keine Bedeutung mehr hat. Ein unglaublich dichter Song, bei dem -hört man ihn mehr als einmal - eine Gänsehaut garantiert ist.
Dies steht jedenfalls zu hoffen...
****
Aber musikalisch ist es doch dürftig.
Kein Vergleich zu "Luka".

o.k.
