Stay Beautiful

R.P. McMurphy è il nome del protagonista del racconto del 1962 di Ken Kesey “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, magistralmente interpretato da Jack Nicholson nell’adattamento cinematografico del 1975 per la regia di Miloš Forman.



Una canzone contro il sistema capitalistico che aliena l’uomo, lo tiene imprigionato dietro le sbarre dei bisogni e dei consumi indotti e, se si ribella, lo annienta.
“No more pills and no more drugs”, ovvero, della necessità di non assoggettarsi, di rifiutare l’imbonimento e la narcosi, di lottare contro il sistema, anche se fosse inutile…

Straight jacket your own beauty
Because it is just a breakdown away
From the gutter to the jewel
A symbol sold in investment days
Defenceless as the pages you burn
A baby drowning under profit curve
Money bruises the skin at birth

I just wanna lie down in my bed
Make myself different from the rest
Use a thought to put myself to sleep
Collapsing in the fields where it feels free
Where it feels free
R.P. McMurphy

No more pills and no more drugs…

This country pisses debris
Like ugly people made pretty
Underneath cheap make up
Deformed, disguised mind decay
Buy, consume get more credit
Learn to serve a life sentence here
Style yourself in sterility

I just wanna lie down in my bed
Make myself different from the rest
Use a thought to put myself to sleep
Collapsing in the fields where it feels free
Where it feels free
R.P. McMurphy

No more pills and no more drugs…
