Story Of Isaac - Suzanne Vega (蘇珊·薇格)

Written by:Leonard Cohen

The door it opened slowly

 

My father he came in I was nine years old

 

And he stood so tall above me

 

His blue eyes they were shining

 

And his voice was very cold

 

He said I've had a vision

 

And you know I'm strong and holy

I must do what I've been told

 

So he started up the mountain

 

I was running he was walking

 

And his axe was made of gold

 

The trees they got much smaller

 

The lake a lady's mirror

 

We stopped to drink some wine

 

Then he threw the bottle over

 

Broke a minute later

 

And he put his hand on mine

 

I thought I saw an eagle

 

But might have been a vulture

I never could decide

 

Then my father built an altar

 

He looked once behind his shoulder

 

He knew I would not hide

 

You who build these altars now

 

To sacrifice these children

You must not do it anymore

 

For a scheme is not a vision

 

And you never have been tempted

By a demon or a god

 

You who stand above them now

 

Your hatchets blunt and bloody

You were not there before

 

When I lay upon a mountain

 

And my father's hand was trembling

 

With the beauty of the word

 

And if you call me brother now

 

Forgive me if I inquire

Just according to whose plan

 

When it all comes down to dust

 

I will kill you if I must

I will help you if I can

 

When it all comes down to dust

 

I will help you if I must

I will kill you if I can

 

And mercy on our uniform

 

Man of peace or man of war

 

The peacock spreads his fan
