[Placebo] Twenty Years

唱這一首歌的時候,Brian Molko 32嵗,Placebo 10嵗;收錄在他們十周年紀念專輯《Once More with Feeling》裏。擺在32嵗前頭的20年與一支樂隊前方的20年,會是什麽樣子?Brian 的詞,再一次震懾人心,一字一句屬於他自己的剖白與暗喻——站在不一樣的定點上你自會有屬於你自己的詮釋方式。

而其實真的愛上這首歌,完全是因爲後來遇見他們在2006年Rock Am Ring 音樂會裏的演繹以後—— Live 版本加了一段middle eight session,而Brian 的吉他的爆發力根本教人喘不過氣!

There are twenty years to go
And twenty ways to know
Who'll wear, who'll wear the hat
There are twenty years to go
The best of all I hope
Enjoy the ride
The medicine show
Thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye
There are twenty years to go
The faithful and the low
The best of starts, the broken heart, the stone
There are twenty years to go
The punch drunk and the blow
The worst of starts, the mercy part, the phone
And thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye
Thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
But it's you i take, cause you're the truth, not I
There are twenty years to go
A golden age I know
But all will pass will end too fast you know
There are twenty years to go
And many friends I hope
Though some may hold the rose
Some hold the rope
That's the end - and that's the start of it
That's the whole - and that's the part of it
That's the hide - and that's the heart of it
That's the long - and that's the short of it
That's the best - and that's the test in it
That's the doubt - the doubt, the trust in it
That's the sight - and that's the sound of it
That's the gift - and that's the trick in it
You're the truth, not I, you're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I, you're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I, you're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I, You're the truth, not I
