This Corrosion - Sisters Of Mercy


The Sisters of Mercy es uno de los grupos más importantes de rock gótico, formado en la época post-punk. Estuvo influenciada por Leonard Cohen, Motörhead, The Stooges y Suicide entre otras; el propio Cohen escribió e interpretó una canción titulada "Sisters of Mercy" en su álbum de debut, Songs of Leonard Cohen. Sisters of Mercy comparten estas influencias con otros grupos de la que fue denominada primera ola de la música gótica.

En 1986 empieza su segunda época tras una ruptura y en 1987 sale el primer simple "This corrosion" un hit que hizo que hasta editasen el álbum en Argentina.

This Corrosion” ha sido interpretada por otros grupos: unheilig, In Extremo y Maryslim junto al cantante de The 69 Eyes.

Muchos la recordaréis de vuestras visitas a las discotecas, cuando aún se ponía música ;) . El inicio de esta canción se usaba muy a menudo para inicios de sesión...

Letra:

Gimme the ring, kissed and toll'd
Gimme something that I missed (gimme the ring)
A hand to hold, wild and what it seems(gimme the ring)
Kill the king, when love is the law,
And the we'll turn round... (gimme the ring)
Gimme dream child
And do you hear me call? (gimme the ring)
On the loan and on the level
...still on the floor (gimme the ring)
Sing dream child
And do you hear at all?

(sing)
(sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing...

Gimme siren, child and do you hear me?
Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?
Sing, child, of right and wrong
Gimme things that don't last long
Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?

(sing)
(sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing...

On daze, like this
In times like these
I feel an animal deep inside
Heel to haunch on bended knees
Living on if and if I tried,
Somebody send me... please...
Dream wars and a ticket to seem
Giving out and in
Selling the don't belong
Well, what do you say
D'you have a word for giving away?
Got a song for me?

(sing)
(sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing...

I got nothing to say I ain't said before
I bled all I can, I won't bleed no more
I don't need no one to understand
Why the blood run hold
The hired hand
On heart
Hand of god
Floodland and driven apart
Run cold
Turn
Cold
Burn
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand
