Carry Fire


"It's not a fence. It's a wall. We're going to build a wall. I could wait about a year and a half until we finish our negotiations with Mexico, which we'll start immediately after we get to office, but I don't want to wait."
(Donald Trump)

Il titolo di questa nuova canzone di Robert Plant, sempre in forma a quasi settant'anni, prende spunto da una dichiarazione di Trump ma non è diretta solo a #45, ma in generale ai Trump di tutto il mondo e di tutte le epoche, dediti a costruire muri. Plant ha dichiarato di vedere dei progressi in molti aspetti della società umana, ma sempre accompagnati da porte chiuse e da dolore.




A very quick glimpse at what we’ve had to do because we have no faith in mankind. We’re strange animals because we can do so much good.

I heard this morning that someone is intent on colonising Mars, the red planet, and yet if that’s possible, how come we’re not able to take in the ebb and flow of humanity, brother to brother, side by side, the different languages? We haven’t got things right so people are ready to bail.

Robert Plant, The Sun
The Russians, the Americans, the British and the French
They're carving up the world again, it's getting kind of tense
A whole lotta posture and very little sense
It's no surprise they hide behind a wall and not a fence

The Irish and the English and the Scottish and the Welsh
A damp and misty history they keep it to themselves
All lost in dark antiquity and smoldering descent
Invisible division "behind wall and not a fence"

Trouble at the border... in the eleventh hour
Ditch and wire and palisade in the line of fire
Call up the cavalry and double the guard
Preparing for catastrophe inside the house of cards

In China they got worried... they built themselves a wall
They built it big and long and tall... to keep away the hoard
A hundred years of blood and toil... a million lives expend
The steely grip of dynasty "behind a wall and not a fence"

Trouble at the border... in the eleventh hour
Ditch and wire and palisade in the line of fire
Call up the cavalry and double the guard
Preparing for catastrophe inside the house of cards

Emperors and Sultans, Kings and Presidents
Dictators and ambassadors engaged in our defense
A lifetime of great service, of selfless good intent
Guaranteed immunity "behind a wall and not a fence"

Trouble at the border... in the eleventh hour
Ditch and wire and palisade in the line of fire
Call up the cavalry and double the guard
Preparing for catastrophe inside the house of cards
