В плеере

В плеере у меня третий день крутится альбом Offspring Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace еще 2008 года, но который я тогда пропустила. Странно даже. Эту группу я всегда нежно любила за их динамику и длинные умные жизненные тексты. Хоть у них и достаточно однообразные мелодии бывают.
Помнится лет эдак 10-8 назад я даже переводила со словарем их тексты и приставала к преподам в попытках узнать, как переводятся некоторые слова. Но они тоже были не спецы по слэнгу, например:)) Это сейчас за 5 минут можно найти и тексты, и словари...
За 3 для прослушала только треков 7. Понравилось почти все:)

Текст понравился. Хотя вроде ничего в нем такого нет.



When the day begins
All the guilt sinks in
And I look on the wreckage of the night
Though I try to break free
The cycle breaks me
Am I ever gonna see the light?

All the friends I've lost
And the pain I've caused
Have never been enough just to make me stop
The lines I draw to look at myself
Are turning into somebody else

I know how this will end
But I'm starting up again
Turned around, inside out
Cause this way

Takes me nowhere (I can't can't see a way out)
Takes me nowhere (I can't can't see a way out)
Takes me nowhere (I can't can't see a way out)
It beats me up

When I go there (I know I could start again)
When I go there (Oh no, here we go again)
Takes me nowhere (Oh no, here we go again)
It beats me up

Open on this scene
A familiar dream
Of you telling me what I already know
Though the truth seems near
You can't get there from here
But you sure know where you're gonna go

As the rumor wind blows
My infamy grows
Seeing friends above
And I hit another low
The picture I paint to look at myself
Is turning into somebody else

I know how this will end
But I'm starting up again
Turned around, inside out
Cause this way

But today, if I change
And stop digging my own grave
I will try, to set things right
Cause this way


You're Gonna Go Far, Kid

Интересно, кстати, почему фраза "далеко пойдешь" получила почти везде негативный оттенок...


Show me how to lie
You’re getting better all the time
And turning all against the one
Is an art that’s hard to teach
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back into line
A mob jumps to their feet

Now dance fucker dance
Man he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Slowly out of line
And drifting closer in your sights
So play it out I’m wide awake
It’s a scene about me
There’s something in your way
And now someone is gonna pay
And if you can’t get what you want
Well it’s all because of me

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, I never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you’ll lead the way
Show the light of day
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid
Trust, deceived!

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Now dance, fucker, dance
He never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

So dance, fucker, dance
I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Clever alibis
Lord of the flies
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

А в Японии плейера такие же своеобразные как мобильные телефоны? Или тоже самое, что и в остальном мире?:)
