The Endless Sea by Iggy Pop

Oh baby, what a place to be
In the service of the bourgeoisie
Where can my believers be
I wanna jump into the endless sea

Oh, oh the endless sea
Oh, oh the endless sea
I wanna jump into the endless sea
Let it wash all over me

Above us is a dirty sky
Full of youths and liquors
A little girl, a little guy
This air can’t get much thicker

Oh, oh the endless sea
Oh, oh the endless sea
Oh, oh the endless sea
Let it wash all over me

And when you’re tight for the rent
You think you’re gonna break
But you know it’s no damn good
Just one more phony on the take

You better go home, buddy
I really think,
You better go home, buddy
You better go home, buddy

The endless sea

And then Meri posted this comment on Tumblr:

I just wanna know how it is that you just know or find the fucking PERFECT analogs for the artwork I send you. The Iggy Pop vid is OVERTHETOP PERFECT. It’s exactly what I was feeling and I adore the sequenced still images of him singing. Never heard this song when it was out… I think I was still busy trying to draft on the bourgeoise… If not, I was driving my son from 1 mental hospital to another during the 6 hours a day I wasn’t working. I love meeting you, Knox. You enrich my life.

Unfortunately the original video to which Meri referred was taken down so I have posted an alternate.

I replied:

Meri – Thanks for the kind words. You enrich my life as well, along with everybody else with whom you engage in our global community. As far as picking a video/song/poem to accompany pictures, it varies from image to image. I think I will do an audioboo about it & post it …
