there's nothing you can do when you are next in the line
ha van értelmetlen dolog egyáltalán, és hát miért ne lenne, akkor az a domino day. felborogatnak ebben az évben 4 155 476 dominót, ami persze nagyon szép és nemes dolog, de mégsem tudnám a művészet kategóriájába sorolni…

én kína helyében most csinálnék egy 40 milliós borogatást, de csak úgy egyetlen vonalba állítva a darabokat. esetleg a kínai nagy falon, ezzel is jelezve a dolog extremitását és értelmetlenségét. Aztán egy pár évig mindenki nyugton maradna, mert nem lenne értelme az egész dolognak, és rengeteg alkotói energia esetleg más értelmes dologba fogna…

a dominóról egyetlen értelmes dolog jut eszembe… egy kellően komplex, végletekig kidolgozott nóta…

genesis: domino

part 1:in the glow of the night

the grey of evening fills the room,
there’s no need to look outside,
to see or feel the rain.
then i reach across to touch her,
but i know that she’s not there.
rain keeps running down the window pane.
time is running out for me.

can’t you see what you are doing to me?
can’t you see what you have done?
as i try to pass another long and sleepless night,
a hundred crazy voices call my name,
as i try to pass them by,
i almost can believe that she is here,
here in the glow of the night.

do you know what you have done?
do you know what you’ve begun?
do you see we shall never be together again?
all of my life.

lonely people, empty rooms,
pointless violence, silent tombs.
could it be that we shall be together again?

sheets of double glazing help to keep outside the night,
only foreign city sirens can cut through,
nylon sheets and blankets help to minimize the cold.
but they can’t keep out the chilling sounds.
will the nightmare soon give way to dreaming
that she is here with me?
here in the glow of the night.

do you know what you have done?
do you know what you’ve begun?
do you see we shall never be together again?
all of my life.

lonely people, empty rooms,
pointless violence, silent tombs.
could it be that we shall be together again?
could it be that we shall be together again?

in silence and darkness
we held each other near that night
we prayed it would last forever.

part 2:the last domino

blood on the windows
millions of ordinary people are there
they gaze at the scenery
they act as if it is perfectly clear
take a look at the mountains
take a look at the beautiful river of blood.

the liquid surrounds me
i fight to rise from this river of hell
i stare round about me
children are swimming and playing with boats
their features are changing
their bodies dissolve and i am alone.

now see what you’ve gone and done.
now see what you’ve gone and done.

well now you never did see such a terrible thing
as was seen last night on t.v.
maybe if we’re lucky, they will show it again
such a terrible thing to see – oh
but there’s nothing you can do when you’re next in line
you’ve got to go domino.

now i’m one with the living and i’m feeling just fine
i know just what i gotta do
play the game of happiness and never let on
that it only lives on in a song – oh
well there’s nothing you can do when you’re next in line
you’ve got to go domino.

do you know what you have done?
do you know what you’ve begun?

in silence and darkness
hold each other near tonight
for will it last forever?
will it last forever – forever…

there’s nothing you can do when you’re the next in line
you’ve got to go domino.

do you know, do you know, do you know what you have done
do you see what you’ve begun?
cos there’s nothing, nothing, nothing
there’s nothing you can do, there’s nothing you can do
do you see, do you see what you have done?
