《單曲》Blink-182 - Bored To Death


Life is too short to last long.

久違五年,來自美國加州的流行龐克樂團 Blink-182 終於將在今年 7/1 推出第七張專輯《California》,經歷主唱兼吉他手 Tom DeLonge 事件風波後將他踢出樂團,其位置由 Alkaline Trio 的 Matt Skiba 頂替。雖然不是樂見的結果,或許以後也沒有機會再合作,但他們的回歸仍是好事一件。這次專輯將收錄 16 首歌曲,Mark Hoppus 為主唱兼貝斯手而 Matt Skiba 則是和聲兼吉他手,當然還少不了招牌鼓手 Travis Barker 繼續坐鎮,並請來 Goldfinger 的 John Feldmann 擔任製作人。送上首支主打「Bored To Death」,歌詞唱著「Save your breath, I'm nearly bored to death」,彷彿是在對 Tom 說省省力氣做正經事吧,其他團員們都無聊得要死了。這次不再無限期停擺,Blink-182 將繼續帶給歌迷他們的專屬流行龐克搖滾!



Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

Written by Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker & Matt Skiba

[Verse 1: Mark Hoppus]
There's an echo pulling out the meaning
Rescuing a nightmare from a dream
The voices in my head are always screaming
That none of this means anything to me

[Pre-Chorus: Mark Hoppus]
And it's a long way back from seventeen
The whispers turn into a scream
And I, I'm not coming home

[Chorus: Matt Skiba & Mark Hoppus]
Save your breath, I'm nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on earth I'm broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

[Verse 2: Matt Skiba]
There's a stranger staring at the ceiling
Rescuing a tiger from a tree
The pictures in her head are always dreaming
Each of them means everything to me

[Pre-Chorus: Matt Skiba]
And it's a long way back from seventeen
The whispers turn into a scream
And I, I'm not coming home

[Chorus: Mark Hoppus]
Save your breath, I'm nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on earth I'm broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

[Bridge: Mark Hoppus]
I think I met her at the minute that the rhythm was set down
I said I'm sorry I'm a bit of a let down
But all my friends are daring me to come over
So I come over and over and over
So let me buy you a drink
And we'll pretend that you think
That I'm the man of your dreams
Come to life in a dive bar
And we'll go over and over and over
And we'll go over and over and over
And we'll go over and over and over
And we'll go over and over and over

[Chorus: Mark Hoppus]
Save your breath, I'm nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on earth I'm broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

[Outro: Matt Skiba]
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh...
(Life is too short to last long)
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh...
