Perfect Symmetry 因果報應、完美對稱

不只Coldplay,其實我也很喜歡Keane,不過沒什麼機會提及,現在機會來了。

這次所說的是他們上年推出的大Perfect Symmetry中的同名歌曲,雖然有點out date,但內容正是我所喜歡的類型,談及現實中人類的愚蠢及無力感,根據我的理解,完美對稱是指因果報應(有錯指正,我也不太肯定其實)。當中傑出的編曲將感情一層層地疊上,最後的部份很具感染力,很喜歡這首歌 🙂

Lyrics:

I shake through the wreckage for signs of life
Scrolling through the paragraphs
Clicking through the photographs

I wish I could make sense of what we do
Burning down the capitols
Wisest of the animals

Who are you, what are you living for
Tooth for tooth, maybe we’ll go one more

This life, is lived in perfect symmetry
What I do, that will be done to me

Write page after page of analysis
Looking for the final score
We’re no closer than we were before

Who are you, what are you fighting for
Holy truth, brother I chose this mortal life
lived in perfect symmetry

What I do, that will be done to me
As the needle, slips into the run out groove
Love, maybe you feel it too

And maybe you find, life is unkind
and over so soon
There is no golden gate
There’s no heaven waiting for you

Oh boy you otta leave this town
get out while you can
the needle’s running out
The voices in the streets you love
everything is better when you hear that shout
woooaohhh
woooaohhh
woooaohhh

spineless dreamers, hide in churches
pieces of pieces of rush hour buses
I dream in emails, worn out phrases
mile after mile of just empty pages

wrap yourself around me
wrap yourself around me

as the needle, slips into the run out groove
maybe i’ll feel it too
maybe you’ll feel it too
maybe you’ll feel it too
maybe you’ll feel it too

I dream in emails, worn out phrases
mile after mile of just empty pages
