Frank Ocean | Wisemen

“Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”

— Quentin Tarantino explaining why he didn’t use the song in “Django Unchained.”

We are seaweed,
We are coral,
We’re a dirty broken bottle
We are fattest couple washed up on the dune

We are seagull,
We are surf,
We are bluest sea on earth
We are beautiful but somehow we’re marooned

We are poem,
We are song,
We are film four hours long
We’re every line that Frank Sinatra crooned

We are Presley,
We’re Cobain,
We’re half sober, half insane
We’re just bleedin’ karaoke finely tuned

Take pure innocence
take pure beauty
Minus tax and add on duty
take the ugliest of all, and have them groomed

We’re too much sugar,
too much salt
and it’s no-one else’s fault
We are beautiful but tragically we’re doomed.
