this is the way the world ends

De Apocalipsis Now!  al “Corazón de las tinieblas” de ahí a la “Rama Dorada” y todo se  entremezcla. Conrad > Coppola> Frazer… Conrad>Kurtz>Virgilio>Diana….!  y ahora  Elliot??

“THE HOLLOW MEN” (T.S. Elliot)

V

Here we go round the prickly pear
Prickly pear, prickly pear
Here we go round the prickly pear
At five o’clock in the morning.
Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom
Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Life is very long
Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom
For Thine is–
Life is—
For Thine is the—-
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

    Todo se entremezcla
    De “This is the way the world ends” a… “This is the end”….
    de T:S: Elliot a Jim Morrison & The Doors ….
    y de vuelta a Conrad, con permiso de Coppola en Apocalypse Now (El Horror)

    This is the end. J Morrison

    This is the end, beautiful friend
    This is the end, my only friend
    The end of our elaborate plans
    The end of everything that stands
    The end

    No safety or surprise
    The end
    I’ll never look into your eyes again

    Can you picture what will be
    So limitless and free
    Desperately in need of some stranger’s hand
    In a desperate land

    Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
    And all the children are insane
    All the children are insane
    Waiting for the summer rain
    There’s danger on the edge of town
    Ride the King’s highway
    Weird scenes inside the gold mine
    Ride the highway West, baby

    Ride the snake
    Ride the snake
    To the lake
    To the lake

    The ancient lake, baby
    The snake is long
    Seven miles
    Ride the snake

    He’s old
    And his skin is cold
    The West is the best
    The West is the best
    Get here and we’ll do the rest

    The blue bus is calling us
    The blue bus is calling us
    Driver, where are you taking us?

    The killer awoke before dawn
    He put his boots on
    He took a face from the ancient gallery
    And he walked on down the hall

    He went into the room where his sister lived
    And then he paid a visit to his brother
    And then he walked on down the hall
    And he came to a door
    And he looked inside
    Father
    Yes son?
    I want to kill you
    Mother, I want to. . .

    C’mon baby, take a chance with us
    C’mon baby, take a chance with us
    C’mon baby, take a chance with us
    And meet me at the back of the blue bus

    This is the end, beautiful friend
    This is the end, my only friend
    The end

    It hurts to set you free
    But you’ll never follow me

    The end of laughter and soft lies
    The end of nights we tried to die

    This is the end.
