Sunday existential crisis

David Bazan (Pedro the Lion) recently did a concert at St. Margaret’s, thanks to the genius organizing of Kurt Armstrong.

Here’s a preview of David Bazan, good for those liminal moments between faith and skepticism, reason and the uncontrollable rush of the unconscious. The sadness evoked in his music has to do with life’s unflagging tensions, being pulled in so many directions. And in the end – acknowledging love.

Wolves at the Door:

Wolves wait at your door
For your permission
Slyly you invite them
On one condition
They prepare a feast
For your provisions
of root and wild beast
for you to eat

Surprise!
They took your money and ate kids
And they had their way
With your wife a little bit
While you wept on the porch
With your head in your hands
Cursing taxes and the government

Cause you’re a goddamn fool
You’re a goddamn fool
You’re a goddamn fool
And I love you
Yeah I love you

Lure into your eyes
Your former glory
Bright and open wide
Like Easter morning
How the light has dimmed
And how the fear of
Everything is creeping in

Cause you’re a goddamn fool
You’re a goddamn fool
You’re a goddamn fool
And I love you
Yeah I love you

Cause you’re a goddamn fool
You’re a goddamn fool
You’re a goddamn fool
And I love you
Yeah I love you
