Nevermind di Leonard Cohen: il testo della canzone scelta come colonna sonora della seconda serie di True Detective

Nevermind (Leonard Cohen)

The war was lost
The treaty signed
I was not caught
I crossed the line
I was not caught
Though many tried
I live among you
Well disguised
I had to leave
My life behind
I dug some graves
You’ll never find

The story’s told
With facts and lies
I had a name
But nevermind

Nevermind
Nevermind
The war was lost
The treaty signed

There’s truth that lives
And truth that dies
I don’t know which
So nevermind

I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom
And strange hands halted me, the looming shadows danced
I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands
