Black Swan Self-Help
Watched in a certain frame of mind, Darren Aronofsky's film "Black Swan" can provoke a small spectrum of existential crises from which one might need a helping hand in the form of a traditional folk-song structure drowning in a deep moan of electric guitar moans and shrieks and glittered with patches of sparkly synths so that you are finally driven back to sanity by the steady pulse of drums and harmonies of critical encouragement . . . This is that song.
"Black Swan Self-Help"
Thanks especially for the extra harmonic boost from Jacquelyn Beaupré aka VOULOUSE!!
LYRICS: Take a look at your life, it's the real thing. (when you notice the doubts start a-rising) In the wing of a swan, in the blackest of skins, in a maze of mirrors within,
I’ve got a secret . . . but I’m gonna keep it!
Take a look at my heart, that's a love true. you can follow its lead when you don’t know what to do. It’s a motherless child. It’s a cyclical growth. It expands like the universe—didn’t you know?
I know the right road . . . that’s where I intend to go!
Take a look at the world—that's the real deal. You can let it affect how you feel. It's an infinite sound. It’s a secret design. It controls time—yours and mine.
I got a secret, but I'm gonna keep it . . .
