Los niños muestran sus cicatrices como medallas, los amantes las usan como secretos a revelar. Una  cicatriz es lo que sucede cuando la palabra se hacer carne.

Leonard Cohen

And I’ll dance with you in Vienna,
I’ll be wearing a river’s disguise.
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder
my mouth on the dew of your thighs.
And I’ll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
with the photographs there and the moss.
And I’ll yield to the flood of your beauty,
my cheap violin and my cross.

Newsweek​ ranked 60 versions of Leonard Cohen​’s song ‘Hallelujah’ and the version from The Final RIOT! came in at #9!

“Is this one even a cover? Sort of! The Tennessee-based band performs an excerpt from the track on its 2008 live LP just before launching into its own track, also named 'Hallelujah.’ Vocalist Hayley Williams’s octave leap is impressive enough; you wish she’d finish off the track.”

A painting of Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave by Australian artist Ben Smith titled “The Influence: Leonard Cohen consoles Nick Cave”:

Leonard pours out the wine of blood and the fruit of knowledge (apple of passion?) lies, sliced, before them. This is father and son, master and pupil, and — perhaps — ventriloquist and dummy.
