Ezra Furman是一名美国犹太音乐家,是一名流性人(Gender Fluid)也就是心理性别认同会随不同时间地点环境而发生改变的一类群体,2006–2011年他组建了自己的第一支乐队Ezra Furman and the Harpoons,发行了三张质量不错的专辑但知名度并不高,11年合约到期解散后自己发行了一张The Year of No Returning并在专辑巡演时形成了现在的乐队阵容,13年发行的Day of the Dog被卫报力捧使他名声大增,15年签入了现在所在的大厂 Bella Union并发行了 Perpetual Motion People媒体均分80,15年发行了一张EP,而这张可以看作他个人的第4张专辑。 专辑的名称Transangelic Exodus似乎很难理解,Genius的解释如下:The CD inlay starts with a section of explanation/scene setting: When my darling grew wings And the government came for us We lived in a red Camaro When your body’s illegal And the people sworn to protect you Refuse to protect you One may have to re-draw the map That once represented home And perhaps this Was always waiting to happen Perhaps we were always marked for outlawhood Ever since we were kids Ever since we fell in love the wrong way And the exodus began 歌词本最后也有致辞: For the immigrant For the refugee For the closeted For the out For the vulnerable For the homeless For the searching This record is an exercise in empathy A ripening of nightmares and a sudden blooming of spirit It’s a protest record, dreamed in dark corners of the heart of a queer grandchild of Holocaust survivors. And what if you had to leave your home because the government was after you? May our vulnerability and difference be a window into the lives of those who are deeply threatened by institutional callousness and hatred. And may this spur us to great courage and kindness. “Do not oppress a foreigner: you know the feelings of the foreigner for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt” Exodus 23:9

以下为歌词的搬运: 1.Suck the blood from my wound I woke up bleeding in the crock of a tree TV blaring on the wall above the coffee machine Car wash waiting room outside Pasadena I'm sitting waiting for my deus ex machina And I'm forever changed by this chemical burn Skin on my fingers peeling, making way for my new form I grip the steering wheel and picture my angel Climbing out the hospital window Leaving tubes in a tangle Blood on my angel's lips blends in with his make up He's off the premises before his brain's had time to wake up Peeling off bandages to unfold his wings The doctors said they'd have to stay on for another three weeks Fuck it baby, let 'em bruise, let 'em break But bleed, let 'em bleed I'm doing ninety, got to get there and hold him If we can make it across the state line then baby, we're golden Let the law pronounce its' petty assertions They've been outsmarted by a couple of urchins And they hurt you bad, man They hurt me too But I'm not about to sit here and watch as they Suck the blood from my wound (x4) Ohh man Wrap half the money in your hospital garment We'll stash the rest inside the red Camero's secret compartment Even the deepest wounds will heal over time I'll run my fingers over your scars and yours over mine They'll never find us if we turn off our phones We're off the grid, we're off our meds We're finally out on our own Now I see colour coming back in your cheeks Angel, don't fight it To them you know we'll always be freaks (x2) We'll always Park for the night north west of Baton Rouge Across the parking lot you're stretching the one wing you can move I let you walk as long as fear will allow I never loved you more than I love you now And then we're back on the road before the sun's even up We're making time, we're making progress But progress towards what? Your fallen feathers fill up two shopping bags The future's breathing down the neck of the past And the sun throws a shit-eating shine on the moon And I'm not about to wait for them to come Suck the blood from my wound (x4) A plague on both your houses (x2) 2.Driving Down to L.A. Don’t tell my mom, don’t tell my dad I’ve been driving down to L.A. with my baby On the cliffs, he drives real fast He may drive his car into the ocean, maybe I don’t mind I’ve got big dreams in my mind I would give up my whole life for that feelin’ No, I don’t mind If I lose my legs or die I’ve built a home inside his eyes And I ain’t leavin’ Don’t tell my mom, don’t tell my brother I’ve been driving down the freeway with my master There’s one law and I’ve known no other It’s the law of love I’m bound to, drive me faster I don’t mind I’ll gladly pay that highway fine This little heart is open wide and it’s getting wider No, I don’t mind If we cross the thin white lines Over a cliff down to the ground I am your rider 3.God Lifts Up The Lowly Some angels will carry you homeward Other angels you don't wanna meet My guardian angel's got wings of tinfoil And cigarettes found in the street My angel's got eyes like a housing project He was born inside a guitar And i can't forget his red lips and eyelashes And his "How'd we end up where we are?" There's nothing doing on the main streets Let's take the alley for the evening And we're driving in a car that won't slow down Making ourselves up in the rear view mirror I know God lifts up the lowly I know God lifts up the lowly We're searching the trunk every morning We tore out a tracking device And I pray for plagues to come down on this Egypt And I dream of blood, fire and lice I wake with my coat for a blanket My angel's been up for an hour I've looked deep into this frail human body And I know that I carry a power We'll never make it on the main streets They'll force us back into the alley ways And we're re-arranging furniture In a burning house I know God lifts up the lowly I know God lifts up the lowly Ram v'nisa, gadol v'nora Mashpil ge'im u'magbiha shfalim Motzi asirim u'podeh anavim V'ozer dalim V'oneh l'amo b'et shavam eilav 4.No Place I found out on a Monday The city I love doesn't love me In fact fuck that It would rather see me dead I hesitated for a minute But I packed my bag that evening Didn't tell you I was leaving I didn't feel safe staying here So I just left Got in my red Camaro In my head no tomorrow Realized it had all been borrowed time That I was living on til now The sun came up less friendly My sense of safety dead before the Red sky gave way to cold blue I wonder who I might be now From the wrong road, miles from no place From the road I call and call This whole world is no place This world is no place at all No place for a creature like me So if you're like me indeed Meet me somewhere way out On the outer outskirts of town At the BP diesel station In my sick imagination You're already on your way to take my Hand and hold me up so I don't drown I just pray you get this letter I hid it in your sweater drawer So the authorities could never see the Plan that I put down But all the warming weather May mean that you won't ever Reach into the secret drawer, and maybe You'd inform the landlord anyway Let me say it again, in a better way I need a pile of rubble To call my domicile Far from the violent rabble, and could I Trouble you to come along And listen to me babble How long will we babble on in exile Babble on in exile Something tells me I may be Singing this song a long, long while But I'll be bringing along a big broad smile To wear as I walk that final long mile Back to the city where they broke my Heart wide open bleeding on the marble Tile From the wrong road, miles from no place From the road I call and call This whole world is no place This world is no place at all 5.The Great Unknown A song is a dream that keeps going on when it's over A man hears a song in the soft speaking voice of his lover A hero goes on when the others believe it's all over A sister is strong when she fights for the cause of her brother A crow with a broken wing stands at the side of the highway A traveller finds a place to sleep at the end of a long day I speak through a telephone You can't decipher what I say We'll meet in Decatur I'll tell you I love you in five days A human is something that rises and falls over time dear Your breathing slows down and you sleep in the fluorescent light dear We're passing through town and there isn't a soul we can trust here We don't use our real names. We struggle. We do what we must here Drive with me into the Great Unknown I think we are on our own. I think we're really on our own A song is a dream that keeps going on when it's over A man hears a song in the soft speaking voice of his lover A hero goes on when the others believe it's all over A sister is strong when she fights for the cause of her brother 6.Compulsive Liar I've got one fatal flaw: I'm a compulsive liar If I don't love you I will tell you anything And even if I love you I'll always be conniving I'll always be negotiating with the truth And I can trace the habit To when I was eleven And I thought boys were pretty And I couldn't tell no one It opens at a young age: That all-protective closet Just lock the door And settle in among the raincoats The longer you stay in there The more you'll get distorted The more contorted all your lies will have to be Don't wait a moment longer: Stand up and turn the doorknob And I'll tell you my secret If you will tell me yours 7.Maraschino Red Dress $8.99 at Goodwill Those long afternoons When nobody was home but me Sun is shining but I dwell in shadow Maraschino-red dress, $8.99 at Goodwill I was looking over my shoulder At the register trying not to be seen Looking over my shoulder at all I had appointments today, errands to run I watch the hours drain away I watch the hours drain away Mid-grade bourbon sitting in the cabinet This day's shot anyway And a couple of beers left from two nights ago I am hideous and no-one can ever know When the sun gets low-down, bloody and red I tie a little knot at the centre of my head I don't think I'll be showing up At synagogue at quarter past seven Sometimes you go through hell and you Never get to heaven Sometimes you go through hell and you Never get to heaven But I thank God Who gives strength to the weary I thank God Who gives strength to the weary 8.From a Beach House And what do we see here Washing up on the beach in November When nobody lives here Because they've all left this beach town For the winter Tables and bed frames A complete set of tarnished silver Photographs with no names More items are left with every crash of the grey waves I collect it all over the course of four days Four days Four days alone Hiding in a yellow beach house Full of beetles and stones And a silence that's freaking me out I broke the phone I didn't mean to but I broke it The waves sigh and moan I sit on the porch and I hope it Don't start to rain again I feel muscle pain again I wait for the main event Which is your voice on the phone to me Saying the operation went smoothly And they still can't kill us, hopefully And you're in the car on the road to me With your brand new body 9.Love You So Bad You know I love you so bad I don't believe in love You know I love you so bad, so bad You know I love you so bad Like the kid in the back of the classroom Who can't do the math cos he can't see the blackboard, so bad You know I love you so bad Like the kid skipping class in the bathrooms Sneaking cigarettes underneath the football bleachers baby, so bad You know I love you so bad Like the kids growing up to be criminals Tearing pages out the back of the hymnals Love notes baby, so bad Still remember so bad The nights mom got drunker than dad did She told me, "never hang out with the bad kids" What can you say to that? I always knew I was bad Always dreaming so they called me the Spaceman You first kissed me in your parent's blue basement I wanted you baby so bad Sometimes we got out of hand We bought drugs from a parking attendant But sober nights in your car were transcendent I loved you baby so bad You know I loved you so bad Somehow you got yourself accepted to college You said there had to be a way out of all this Garbage small town rat trap You moved away that was that You still send me the occasional email I got a dumb job working in retail I miss you baby so bad, so bad I drew your name in the sand I came to the beach cos we used to go here I watched the blue wave cover it over And do what the ocean does best I know the past is the past Then again, the present's nothing without it I feel fine, don't even feel sad about it I just love you baby so bad So bad so bad 10.Come Here, Get Away From Me I suck all the life out of everything I see I drink a bottle of wine I've got the digital content blues I got money saved up somewhere Lost the card and the chequebook, name of the bank There's a plague in my head Come here, get away from me I believe in God But I don't believe we're getting out of this one Before somebody pays for the things I've done I did some terrible things it's true But even terrible-r were the things I didn't do When I was living up at Kalamazoo Get away from me [Chorus] All my life All my life I'm jumping rock to rock I'll see you in your dreams All my life All my life I've built this fortress On the edge of your town Come here and get away from me Have you ever stayed up all night In a trailer park in a field in Germany While a man on a motorcycle circles around real slow? And you shiver and it's cold and the sun comes up And your friends wake up and you tell them about the man Was he ever even there? And you don't even know So you say you want to get to know me So you say you want to make contact Well, talk to me baby come here get away from me Talk to me baby come here get away from me Talk to me baby get to know me, you can take it right back I got one doctor that I talk to every week about this panic I got one doctor that I talk to every week about this apathy I can't wake up and I don't know how to sleep Honey, I got a paradox and I can't get free Come here, put your hand on my knee And don't touch me, get away from me [Chorus] 11.Peel My Orange Every Morning I eat an orange every morning And I take my time with the peel It's my beginner's meditation To start my little journey on an even keel I will sail, as the hours roll by In my twentieth-century automobile And a hotel employee Will sweep up the orange remnants Leaving no trace of this moment So sweet and so real Ah Ah Good God I am sailing I am driving toward The end of my own need to drive This is February 7th 2017 I am shattered, I am bleeding, but God damn it I'm alive I am pulled, I am tossed Back and forth across This country, like garbage with the tide I am citrus: peel back my skin Open me and expose the soft wet inside Ah, I -oh hell yeah 12.Psalm 151 She said If you need to find a door inside of your head That leads to somewhere else I'll show it to you She told us all about Psalm 151 And what comes after Hallelujah She said I'll feed you in the morning, eggs on rye bread But you're sleeping on the floor Don't come to my bed It's too soon for you to see me With my wings spread But I've seen her wet with moonlight Praying in the street Feathers at her feet And I saw the small harp hanging That she never plays Waiting for the day That it all comes falling down And words fail me now Skipped meals We'll stay in Kansas city till the wound heals The government went bad, we got a raw deal A transangelic exodus on four wheels But I've seen the broken halo That she never wears Hanging by the stairs Angel, I'll be your guardian if you'll be mine Authorities are trailing right behind I'm not afraid, we read the Psalms at night Clear through Nebraska with just one headlight 13.I Lost My Innocence Well I could feel the sections of my Brain detaching I could feel the fluid in my head go bad I could see my future in his Leather jacket Shining in the darkness of My schoolboy past I lost my innocence to a Boy named Vincent Box of girl scout thin mints And a pack of Winstons I lost my innocence to a Boy named Vincent In a single incident I was changed Now I'm a little creature In the lazy evening I'm a little creature And they can't catch me Lying semi-naked on his rooftop dreaming Dreaming of the creature That I used to be I lost my innocence to a Boy named Vincent Box of girl scout thin mints And a pack of Winstons I lost my innocence to a Boy named Vincent And a new existence soon found me I looked a real long time To find the border Of a kingdom of love, outside the Reigning order And I found my angel on a motorcycle I'm a queer for life Outlaw, outsider and uh I lost my innocence to a Boy named Vincent In a single instance I joined the true resistence I lost my innocence to a Boy named Vincent In a single instant I was set free
