口絵(モノクロ)2点、本文中図版(モノクロ)32点。
本書はパティ・スミスの歌詞(アルバム未収録曲も含む)を自筆原稿図版等を交えつつ集成した本です。写真家メイプルソープとの思い出を綴った自伝的長編エッセイ『Just Kids』が興味深かったので本書も購入してみました(メイプルソープにはあまり興味がなかったのですが「俺たちに明日はない」や絵本作家エドワード・ゴーリーのファンだったことを知ってたいへん共感を覚えました)。小口がふぞろいなラフカットになっていてオシャレではありますが見たい歌詞をさがすのにはやや不便です。

petti smith - collected lyrics 03



◆本書より◆


「To Find a Voice」より:

「We all have a song.
 A song comes spontaneously, expressing joy, loneliness, to dispel fear or exhibit a small triumph. We hardly notice we are forming them, as we sing them, often alone, half to ourselves.
 It is finding the words within that leads us to sing. It might be a hymn, a shard of rebellion, or a teenage prayer. We discover inspiration where we may, in an old guitar in the corner of a garage, under a bed, or hanging in a pawnshop window. In a phrase carried to us by the wind, walking along. In the reflection we see of ourselves in the mirror. Sometimes we recognize our song in the song of another. It is the miracle of the popular song, songs that are beloved universally, often in their simplicity.
 The evolution of such little songs into poetry, improvisational performance and collaboration produced these lyrics, written with great hopes to strike some chord, reaching a listener who finds their meaning within, and sings along.」

「We gave new meaning to the word "soldier." We were slinging an electric gutiar instead of a machine gun.」



「Oath」より:

「Jesus died for somebody's sins
but not mine」
「my sins my own」



「Ghost Dance」より:

「We shall live again
We shall live again
We shall live again
Shake out the ghost」



「Babelogue」より:

「i have no guilt.」
「i have not sold myself to god.」



「Rock n Roll Nigger」より:

「Outside of society they're waiting for me
Outside of society that's where I want to be」

「I was lost and the cost
And the cost didn't matter to me
I was lost and the cost
Was to be outside society
Jimi Hendrix was a nigger
Jesus Christ and grandma too
Jackson Pollock was a nigger
Nigger nigger nigger nigger
Nigger nigger nigger
Outside of society they're waiting for me
Outside of society if you're looking
That's where you'll find me
Outside of society they're waiting for me」



「Manifesto notes, 1977」:

「everything is shit. the word ART must be redefined. this is the age where everybody creates. rise up nigger take up your true place. rise up nigger the word too must be redefined. this is your arms and this is your hook. don't the black boys get shook. high asses asses get down. NIGGER no invented for the color it was made for the plague. for the royalty who have read justed their sores. the artist. the mutant. the rock and roll mulatto. arise new babe born sans eye-brow and tonsil. outside logic beyond mathmatics self torture and poli-tricks. the new science advances unknown geometry. arise with new eyes new health new niggers. this is your call your calling your psalm. rise up niggers soldiers of new fotune. uncalcuable caste of we new niggers.

MADE FOR the PLAGUE」




◆感想◆


そういうわけで、「Rock n Roll Nigger」の歌詞にはどれだけ勇気づけられたかわからないです(「nigger」を「自閉症」におきかえるであります)。
