Finally another season finished! Season 5…the titles started to remind me of Skinner and his delicate balance between good and bad, protecting his agents and lying to them – fun times!
As usual, episode titles are underlined. Yes, I took a certain artistic liberty with Redux I/II (after consulting with fellow Philes on the matter), and decided that really…they’re both named Redux, the numbers are just there to keep the order straight.
I follow you, and you:
My beautiful two unusual suspects caught folie a deux
How did we get here?
I try, I do
To guard and guide, love and reproach
– A hapless father to some post-modern Prometheus
Stealing fires from the monsters pulling my strings,
Crossing the line I try to maintain.
I play both sides,
Navigating a dreaded thread between the red and the black:
Of Love and Death,
Flush of youth and aging grace
– this Church and State
A prehistoric battle trapped in a Christmas carol
Infecting all Life’s travelers,
A bad blood disease – and I’m patient X of the Pine Bluff variant.
All souls are waiting for some sign,
For recollected light casting shadows on the wall of the cave,
Archetypes of the mind’s eye
So am I –
I’ve seen it …when I died:
The world displayed in guts and gore
Savage frailty, full glory – hate ignored
It was enough mystery for this life.
I try to buck, find a damn detour
Knock it off,
The things I’ve done – find me!
Come back – stop me – redux!
Find your way home;
Save you, everyone, myself – redux, please!
Beware my destructive emily con su chinga del cigarro
Remember who you can trust in the end.
They’ve got me by the kill switch,
(I won’t get a second break)
I’m dealing, fed lies bred in schizogeny
I’m still me
– it doesn’t even matter what I believe,
It matters what I do.
So what I do is follow you, and you – kitsunegari
Until I’m turned…folie a three.
