Postpunkklassieker du jour: Breakdown – Clock DVA

Postpunk-disco, zo heette het zaterdagmiddagprogramma op Radio GOT 95,5. De classificering maakt het makkelijk alles wat er gedraaid kon worden als postpunk te boeken. Dit is de onrubriceerbare muziek van 1983 – jazz? Het maakt mij niet uit, ik kan het nog steeds graag keihard opzetten.

and love’s a dangerous game to play
from now on
it’s just a lie
it’s just a sign
like stilted conversations that ended
with closed books
tells you to forget
something told me yesterday
from now on
it’s time to find
that you are not just dreaming
now it’s time for waking up
tells you to forget

a thousand fragments disperse and die

and love’s serious game we play
from time to time
we wonder why
like a sudden realisation
that tells you it’s no good
tells you to forget
but you can’t

we play our games
we say we’ll change this time
it’s for real
we’ll avoid those mistakes
but dreams get broken
in the wake and the promises are fake
breakdown about to come around again

breakdown comes around and leaves you without a sound
