Description
Inspired by Marguerite Duras (4 April 1914 – 3 March 1996), French writer and film director.

"She says people ought to learn to live like them, with the body abandoned in a wilderness, and in the mind the memory of a single kiss, a single word, a single look to stand for a whole love."
— Marguerite Duras (from Blue Eyes, Black Hair)

Lyrics
Les yeux bleus cheveux noirs, Duras
(English translation below)

dans leur vide, dinant, dans le silence
son visage nu, œles yeux bleus cheveux noirs
elle fait mal pour son amour, mais a négligé
long couloir foncé, œles yeux bleus cheveux noirs

le silence, entre leurs mots blancs
parle plus fort, des œles yeux bleus cheveux noirs
passion, et larmes longtemps oubliées
aucune magie dans ce silence

Les yeux bleus cheveux noirs, Duras

le paradoxe; oh, ils auraient été nus
et ont embrassé la brume, œ œles yeux bleus cheveux noirs
l'art de noyer ceux douleur la beauté
des mensonges son blanc
peau morte
œles yeux bleus cheveux noirs
le paradoxe; oh, ils auraient été nus
et ont embrassé la brume, œ œles yeux bleus cheveux noirs

Les yeux bleus cheveux noirs, Duras

Blue eyes, black hair, Duras

in their emptiness, dining, in silence
her naked face, blue eyes, black hair
she aches for his love, but neglected
long dark corridors, blue eyes, black hair

the silence, between their white words
speaks louder, blue eyes, black hair
passion, and long forgotten tears
there's no magic in this silence,
blue eyes, black hair

the paradox; oh, would they have been naked
and kissed the mist, blue eyes, black hair
the art of drowning ones sorrow
the beauty of lies
her white, dead skin
blue eyes, black hair

Great track Mikki
Big fan of Duras... particularly The Lover, and the Ravishing of Lol Stein. The French novel was never the same after her. Great tribute... and love your francais!

Mikki,
Really dark and syncophantic as only a french literary graphic design rock god could make it. The whole thing is at once completely off kilter and completely in the hole, all at once. Off the charts cool.

I love the way the calm of the vocals and relaxed drum beat works with the frantic guitars.

I wish
I could write lyrics in French as good as that. Intense song, as the character was, one of a kind, really.
