La soledad y la depresión más desconsoladora resuenan en cada nota y verso de “Blue”, una de las últimas rolas que de R.E.M. que forma parte de Collapse Into Now.

Dirigido por James Franco, este video muestra la inmensa ciudad de Los Angeles por la cual vamos recorriendo de noche en sus diferentes locaciones llegando a un estudio donde Lindsay Lohan posa para el camarógrafo Terry Richardson en una sesión de fotos. No se que sea pero cuando ves el video mientras suena “Blue” refleja lo insignificante que somos ante este mundo que se encuentra a cada momento cambiando.

Definitivamente haces una introspección acerca de lo mucho o poco que has conseguido y que finalmente aunque lo tengamos todo materialmente, sigue habiendo ese vacío espiritual inconsolable a veces.

Letra de “Blue”:

Yellow circus left the stakes 
a broken ropes world’s useless mug
The ties that bind, ha ha
I can be bad poet
Street poet
Shit poet
Kind poet too

Subway
Almost 4AM
Halloween night
Had enough to drink to make my own party
All my fellow writers in half costume, half asleep
Half silly, gone to seed

I don’t mark my time with dates, holidays, 
faded wisdom, locked karma holders
Convenient

I am made by my times
I am a creation of now
Shaken with the cracks and crevices
I’m not giving up easy
I will not fold
I don’t have much
But what I have is gold

I saw your face…

I sing in platinum
I dress in brass
I eat in zinc
Let it pass

Compare a toast
I like that
I understand courage
I still roll with the shout of a character
I was married to today
I try to see outside myself
I understand the eyes
Excuse all the highs
Sorry
I am sorry
Ha ha

I like you, love you, every coast of you.
I’ve seen your eddies and tides 
and hurricanes and cyclones.
Low ebb tide and high, full moon.
Up close and distant.
I read you.
Look, the sky, the sea, the ocean, 
the sun, the moon.
Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue,
blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue.
Naked and blue.

Breathing with you. Touch. Change. Shift. 
Allow air. Window open. Drift. 
Drift away. Into now.

I want Whitman proud. Patti Lee proud. 
My brothers proud. My sisters proud. 
I want me. I want it all. 
I want sensational. Irresistible.

This is my time and 
I am thrilled to be alive.

Living. Blessed. I understand.
