《單曲》Gorillaz (ft. Benjamin Clementine) - Hallelujah Money


Don't worry my friend. If this be the end, then so shall it be.

睽違六年,英國虛擬樂團 Gorillaz 預計將於今年推出第五張專輯,而他們提前在美國第 45 任總統 Donald Trump 就職典禮前一天發行最新單曲「Hallelujah Money」表示抗議。這次作品一樣具有實驗性,與 2015 年英國水星獎得主、詩人歌手 Benjamin Clementine 合作,講述金錢崇拜,以美國夢式寓意歌詞與末日般音樂錄影帶反諷,對權力、貪婪與人性的質疑和哀悼!我們怎麼知道這個象徵多元民主、自由繁榮的偉大國度,是不是只是野心政客與財團在一次次交易中的犧牲品而已。

Directed by Giorgio Testi & Gorillaz

PS. MV 結尾的海綿寶寶很驚嚇!

Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

[Verse 1: Benjamin Clementine]
Here is our tree
That primitively grows
And when you go to bed
Scarecrows from the Far East
Come to eat its tender fruits
And I have thought the best way to perfect our tree
Is by building walls
Walls like unicorns in full glory and galore
And even stronger than the walls of Jericho
But glad then my friend
Out in the field we shall reap a better day
What we have always dreamt of having
Are now for the starving
It is love, that is the root of all evil
But not our tree
And thank you my friend
For trusting me

[Hook: Benjamin Clementine]
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah money (Past the chemtrails)
Hallelujah money (Hallelujah money)
Hallelujah money (Hallelujah money)
Hmmm, hallelujah money (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah money (Oooh)

[Bridge: 2-D]
How will we know?
When the morning comes
We are still human
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

[Verse: Benjamin Clementine]
Don't worry my friend
If this be the end, then so shall it be
Until we say so, nothing will move
Ah, don't worry
It's not against our morals
It's legally tender
Touch, my friend
What the whole world
And whole beasts of nations desire
Power

[Bridge: 2-D]
When the morning comes
We are still human
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

[Hook: Benjamin Clementine]
(Hallelujah money) Hallelujah money
(Past the chemtrails) Hallelujah money
(Hallelujah money) Hmmm, hallelujah money
(Hallelujah money) Hallelujah money
(Oooh) Hallelujah money
(Hallelujah money)
(Hallelujah)
Hallelujah money!
