the same touch that heals me left a scar
1. Первая песня -- она о ненависти.
Куда уж ненавистнее?

Oh, when you're blessed with a grave to call your own,
In my mind you'll be six feet closer to your home

Если честно, возможно, я люблю BMTH именно за то, что они позволяют мне почувствовать её. Ну и подтверждают, конечно, что это ок. It's okay to hate, too.
Энивэй, она злая и тёмная. Сплошной гроул и скриминг, ни одного мягкого тона.
Она из первого их альбома; они тогда не нашли ещё ту гармонию, что придёт в высшую точку в Sempiternal, они сырые, грубые, похожи на другие группы в том же жанре. Для того, чтобы увидеть в них красоту, что вижу я, наверное, надо быть фанатом.
Но мне нравится. И плотно ассоциируется с отцом, потому что сейчас ситуация с ним хуёвая, пусть и не особо трогает меня.
Плохо, вообще-то. Хотя я прекрасно знаю, что дойду до beautiful indifference, только когда во вполне буквальном смысле уйду.

I guess some kids are just born with tragedy in their blood,
I try to wash this away,
I wanna cleanse your
VEINS!

I can help you see the light
Out of your despair,
You tie the rope,
I'll kick the fucking chair!

I feel the malice in my veins
My heart swells with hatred in your name,
And when you've got nothing to turn black and blue,
You've still got Hell to look forward to,

(You've still got Hell
You've still got Hell
When you've still got Hell)

I will dance on your grave,
I will dance on your fucking grave,
I will dance on your grave,
I will dance on your grave,

Oh, when you're blessed with a grave to call your own,
In my mind you'll be six feet closer to your home,
Your eulogy will be music,
Your eulogy will be music to my ears,

Oh, yeah,

I can help you to see light out of your despair,
You tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair,

I feel the malice in my veins,
And my heart swells with hatred in your name,
And when you've got nothing to be black and blue,
You've still got Hell,
You've still got Hell to look forward to,

Black and blue,
Black and blue,

I have never really fucking cared,
She never fucking, had fucking air,
I have never really fucking cared,
Tie the rope, I'll kick the fucking chair,
Let's go



2. Эти две песни плотно связались в моём сознании из-за вполне конкретных строк.


In the wreckage of a job well done
I saw a place I'd never seen before, yeah
In that moment I refused
To close my eyes anymore

Set me off like dynamite
Strapped tight around my waist
We are the ones in competition
But claim this ain't no race
Let's go

Take a breath and explode like bullets
Tearing through the wind
Cut me up with a razor blade
Then try to separate the skin

Now in the white flames are burning flags
We found a world worth dying for, yeah
We've been battered so hard that
We don't feel anymore

Take me from this world
Save me, what if we all die young
So take me from this world
Save me, what if we all die young

Send me off on the morning breeze
So far away from here
Fill your eyes in the strains of thought
Outside the warm embracing air

I'm moving slow like a glacier melting
Watch me dissipate
I searched for love in an empty world
But all I found was hate

Now in the white flames are burning flags
We found a world worth dying for, yeah
We've been battered so hard that
We don't feel anymore

Take me from this world
Save me, what if we all die young
So take me from this world
Save me, what if we all die young

Don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know
Don't ask me how, I'm gonna solve this on my own
Don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know
These things I'll never face, scratch out the warning race

In the wreckage of a job well done
I saw a place I'd never seen before, yeah
In that moment I refused
To close my eyes anymore

So take me from this world
Save me, what if we all die young
So take me from this world
Save me, what if we all die young

So take me, so take me



I can’t look away or pretend not to see
And so I say

I’ve been awake too long
Wish there was something that could close my eyes
To all that I see



Download Rise Against Awake Too Long for free from pleer.com

I watched the rise and the fall of the common man
I lived to see your steps walk back
I watched the walls all crash down, crumbling
Just to be rebuilt while we slept

We threw swords in the oceans wide and deep
We promise peace but the peace won’t last
‘Cause now we forge new blades so nervously
Waiting for this harmony to pass

I stand guard and roam
Like a sentinel
I see it all

I’ve been awake too long
Wish there was something that could close my eyes
To all that I see
Awake too long
It would be easier to fall asleep

We fell in love but the love kept running out
We follow roads but the roads all end
We lived and learned, and learned to live without
Falling from the ladders we ascend

I’ve seen the eyes of the widows left behind
I’ve seen the child of a fallen man
And never once did our leaders apologize
For battles they began

I can’t look away or pretend not to see
And so I say

I’ve been awake too long
Wish there was something that could close my eyes
To all that I see
Awake too long
It would be easier to fall asleep

Asleep

Maybe I would dream if I could sleep
Maybe I’d see what this could be
Instead of what it is
And is there bliss in ignorance?
Is this our demise we can’t prevent?
Should we fall asleep?

I’ve been awake too long
I’ve been awake too long
I’ve been awake too long
I’ve been awake too long

(I’ve been awake too long) And like constant vigils we all
(I’ve been awake too long) Carry eternal flames
(I’ve been awake too long) I’m saturate pains to an open heart
(I’ve been awake too long) But through it all
Every single cut I’ve been awake


Мне кажется, что это один и тот же герой. Первая песня (она из третьего или второго их альбома, не помню точно) -- она о том, что его держит. О том, что есть мир, за который стоит умереть. И он отказывается умирать просто так.
А вторая (она из последнего, пятого альбома) -- о том, как он устал жить.
Он так устал, что доходит до крайной точки:
Maybe I would dream if I could sleep
Maybe I’d see what this could be
Instead of what it is
And is there bliss in ignorance?
Is this our demise we can’t prevent?
Should we fall asleep?

И у песни, по сути, открытый финал. Он задаётся этими вопросами, но не даёт на них ответы, просто подтверждая в конце песни, что он -- awake. Надолго ли?

Эх.
Надо, что ли, поискать что-нибудь по анализу рок-музыки. Нельзя же так...

3. А третья песня почему-то обо мне.
На самом деле, она ничерта не обо мне.
Наверное.
Я _знаю_, что не должен чувствовать это, но чувствую странный отклик.
Может, это и так?
Энивэй, новая группа, совсем свежая. Канадцы, металкор, охуенно гармоничные. Всё, что надо просто. :heart:.


When you're the only one you live for
No one will remember your name



Download Now And On Earth Intoxicated for free from pleer.com
Your past is catching up
And you’re running so quick out of luck
Your past is catching up
And you're running, you're running

Burnt all your bridges down
To make you feel alive
Break your spine
So you don't have to walk the line

You disappear without a trace
Abandoning the ones that needed you close
When you're the only one you live for
No one will remember your name

You're intoxicated
On your fear and pain
You're infatuated
With your guilt and shame
Feeling sorry for yourself
While the world is dying around you
Sorry I can't help you
This is how it ends

The voices will not leave your head
With opens arms, you welcomed them
They'll chew you up, leave you for dead
A taste of your own medicine
Every moment feels like it might be your last
No one has your back
Every moment feels like a heart attack
That's what you get when you walk on this crooked path

You disappear without a trace
Abandoning the ones that needed you close
When you're the only one you live for
No one will remember your name

You're intoxicated
On your fear and pain
You're infatuated
With your guilt and shame
Feeling sorry for yourself
While the world is dying around you
Sorry I can't help you
This is how it ends

There's nowhere else that you can go
You're on your own when you get this low
You can swallow your pride to turn the tide
But you'd rather choke
Hate to see you get what you deserve
But you lit the match and you let it burn
You're your own worst enemy
So don't take your anger out on me

There's nowhere else that you can go
You're on your own when you get this low
You can swallow your pride to turn the tide
But you'd rather choke

You're intoxicated
On your fear and pain
You're infatuated
With your guilt and shame
Feeling sorry for yourself
While the world is dying around you
Sorry I can't help you
This is how it ends
Sorry I can't help you
This is how it ends


Эх.
Как там?
-- Какую музыку ты слушаешь?
-- Тебе не понравится.
