Nick Drake "Parasite" - (album: "Pink Moon" - Simply Music UK, 1973)


Lifting the mask from a local clown
Feeling down like him
Seeing the light in a station bar
And travelling far in sin
Sailing downstairs to the northern line
Watching the shine of the shoes
And hearing the trials of the people there
Who's to care if they lose.
And take a look you may see me on the ground
For I am the parasite of this town.

Dancing a jig in a church with chimes
A sign of the times today
And hearing no bell from a steeple tall
People all in dismay
Falling so far on a silver spoon
Making the moon for fun
And changing a rope for a size too small
People all get hung.
Take a look and see me coming through
For I am the parasite who travels two by two.

When lifting the mask from a local clown
And feeling down like him
And I'm seeing the light in a station bar
And travelling far in sin
And I'm sailing downstair to the northern line
Watching the shine of the shoes
And hearing the trials of the people there
Who's to care if they lose.
And take a look you may see me on the ground
For I am the parasite of this town.
And take a look you may see me in the dirt
For i am the parasite who hangs from your skirt.

(To Pink Moon έμελε να είναι το τελευταίο άλμπουμ του Drake. Το 1974 η κατάθλιψη τον νίκησε. Σε ηλικία μόλις 26 ετών. Κάθε στίχος του Parasite κρύβει μέσα του τόση οδύνη και πόνο, που απορείς πως κατάφερε ν΄αντέξει τόσο. Είναι ένα υπέροχο τραγούδι. Σ'ευχαριστώ που μου το θύμισες.)
