《單曲》The Neighbourhood - R.I.P. 2 My Youth


R.I.P. to my youth
If you really listen, then this is to you

來自美國加州的另類搖滾樂團 The Neighbourhood,2013 年發行首張專輯《I Love You》,不走溫暖舒適的加州陽光路線,而是使人難以招架的黯黑頹廢,潮流主打「Sweater Weather」蟬聯 Billboard 另類榜 11 週冠軍,名聲大開。受邀為 2014 年超級英雄電影《The Amazing Spider-Man 2 蜘蛛人驚奇再起2:電光之戰》原聲帶創作並演唱歌曲「Honest」,同年實驗發行混音專輯《#000000 & #FFFFFF》,取黑與白的色碼為名,請來眾多饒舌歌手助陣,灌注靈魂與個性。緊接著於去年 10/30 推出第二張專輯《Wiped Out!》,延續黑白風格,謎樣般迴盪,融合電子合成、嘻哈饒舌與 R&B 等元素,驅走內心浮躁,釋放真實人性與黑暗面。送上其中收錄的單曲「R.I.P. 2 My Youth」,狂放不羈燃燒年少,緬懷逝去的青春!

[Intro: ]
R.I.P. to my youth

[Verse 1: ]
And you could call this the funeral
I'm just telling the truth
And you can play this at my funeral
Wrap me up in Chanel inside my coffin
Might go to Hell and there ain't no stopping
Might be a sinner and I might be a saint
I'd like to be proud, but somehow I'm ashamed
Sweet little baby in a world full of pain
I gotta be honest, I don't know if I could take it
Everybody's talking, but what's anybody saying?
Mama said if I really want, then I can change it, yeah
R.I.P. to my youth
If you really listen, then this is to you
Mama, there is only so much I can do
Tough for you to witness, but it was for me too

[Chorus: ]
I'm using white lighters to see what's in front of me
R.I.P. to my youth

[Verse 2: ]
And you could call this the funeral
I'm just telling the truth, yeah
You can play this at my funeral
Tell my sister don't cry and don't be sad
I'm in paradise with Dad
Close my eyes and then cross my arms
Put me in the dirt, let me dream with the stars
Throw me in a box with the oxygen off
You gave me the key and you locked every lock
When I can't breathe, I won't ask you to stop
When I can't breathe, don't call for a cop
I was naive and hopeful and lost
Now I'm aware and driving my thoughts

[Bridge: ]
What do I do? What do I do?
I don't believe it if I don't keep proof
I don't believe it if I don't know you
I don't believe it if it's on the news or on the Internet
I need a cigarette

[Chorus: ]
I'm using white lighters to see what's in front of me
I'm using white lighters to see
R.I.P. to my youth

[Verse 3: ]
And you could call this the funeral
I'm just telling the truth
And you can play this at my funeral
Tell my sister don't cry and don't be sad
I'm in Paradise with Dad
Close my eyes and then cross my arms
Put me in the dirt, let me be with the stars
