Goodbye, Lou

Goodbye to one the heroes of my adolescence and since then until now . His music have been in my ears in the ups and downs of my life, in wild moments and in the quiet time. He was the sound of the suburbs and the sound of heterodoxy and transgression. He was the sound of love and hate.

Any of his songs would be perfect to listen now, any of his poem would be suitable to read in his honor today. But in this time of crisis, when the values seems to dissapear and the darkness looks as the winner, one of his songs comes to mind over the rest of his work:  "There is no time".



This is no time for CelebrationThis is no time for Shaking HandsThis is no time for BackslappingThis is no time for Marching Bands
This is no time for OptimismThis is no time for Endless ThoughtThis is no time for my country Right or WrongRemember what that brought
There is no timeThere is no timeThere is no timeThere is no time
This is no time for CongratulationsThis is no time to Turn Your BackThis is no time for CircumlocutionThis is no time for Learned Speech
This is no time to Count Your BlessingsThis is no time for Private GainThis is the time to Put Up or Shut UpIt won't come back this way again
There is no timeThere is no timeThere is no timeThere is no time
This is no time to Swallow AngerThis is no time to Ignore HateThis is no time to be Acting FrivolousBecause the time is getting late
This is no time for Private VendettasThis is no time to not know who you areSelf knowledge is a dangerous thingThe freedom of who you are
This is no time to Ignore WarningsThis is no time to Clear the PlateLet's not be sorry after the factAnd let the past become out fate
There is no timeThere is no timeThere is no timeThere is no time
This is no time to turn away and drinkOr smoke some vials of crackThis is a time to gather forceAnd take dead aim and Attack
This is no time for CelebrationThis is no time for Saluting FlagsThis is no time for Inner SearchingsThe future is at hand
This is no time for Phony RhetoricThis is no time for Political SpeechThis is a time for ActionBecause the future's Within Reach
This is the timeThis is the timeThis is the timeBecause there is no time
There is no timeThere is no timeThere is no timeThere is no time
