King Crimson: Album cover

IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING

1. 21ST CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN
Including MIRRORS

(Fripp-McDonald-Lake-Giles-Sinfield)

Cat’s foot iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia’s poison door
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Blood rack barbed wire
Politicians’ funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Death seed blind man’s greed
Poets’ starving children bleed
Nothing he’s got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man.

뱀 뿔
 ’21ST CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN’은 Pink Floyd의 ‘Brain Damage’처럼 그 시대의 정의로 포장된 권력을 지칭하는 것으로 생각된다(다 아는 얘기일 듯).
