Placebo: Battle for the Sun Lyrics (We got Five Dates!)

Placebo 官網上普施甘露,予歌迷們搶先聆聽新碟《Battle for the Sun》的機會。5月29日早上九點至31日午夜間,限每個ID登錄五次,每次從頭聽到尾沿途不得暫停回顧,每首歌完畢需自行按NEXT去下一首歌,超過15分鐘閣下沒有動靜就會自動被踢出去。

於是,很貼心地附上小丁嚀囑咐歌迷們千萬等到有足夠時間再來全神貫注地聼,可別邊聼邊煮飯洗衣澆花午睡恍惚間錯過一次黃金機會;忘記說的是也請確保網路訊號暢通無阻再來玩(或者非STREAMYX用戶就不會有此困擾?)。

先別説這樣嚴苛條件是否真有效,也漠視網上衆多IT神童們多快能確保全天下人們能晝夜不分連續轟炸這張碟;作爲歌迷,今囘請別成爲扼殺音樂工業的幫兇,一起來遵守遊戲規則支持Brian Stefan & Steve然後在6月8日那天乖乖上街買CD去。

(今天一整天是久違的COLD SATURDAY,陽光有溫度無,這樣的天氣聼這片生根于黑暗中立於黑暗之地仰望太陽說白話的碟,對味對時對得起。)

01 Kitty Litter

The way you're dancing
Makes me come alive
Makes me shiver and perspire
Your surreptitious glancing
The way you crack a smile
Nearly start a fire
.
So move closer
Want to feel your touch
So come over
Come on
.

[Chorus]
Love of mine
This fortress in our hearts
Feels much weaker
Now we're apart
Love of mine
This fortress in our hearts
Comes crashing down

.
I need a change of skin
I need a change
.
The way you're moving
Makes me start to sigh
Makes you all that I desire
I shiver off my jeans and I'm so unsatisfied
You're all that I require
.
* So move closer
Gotta feel your touch
So come over
Come on
.
*
.

[Chorus]

I need a change of skin

I need a change

.
I need a change, I need a change of skin x4
.
[Chorus]

02 Ashtray Heart

Cenicero, mi cenicero
Mi corazón, mi cenicero X2
.
You are the birth and you are waste
You are the one who took my place
You took a jump into forever
A leap of faith I could not take
.
And it was
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make
.
[chorus]
Cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazón, mi cenicero X4
.
You were alone before we met
No more folorn than one could get
How could we know
We had found treasure
How sinister and how correct
.
And it was A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make

[chorus] x 2

.
I tore the muscle from your chest
Used it to stub out cigarettes
I listened to your screams of pleasure
And I watch the bed sheets turn blood red
.
[chorus] x 2

03 Battle for the Sun

I, I, I, will battle for the sun, sun, sun.
And I, I, I wont stop until I'm done, done, done.
You, you, you are getting in the way, way, way.
And I, I, I have nothing left to say, say, say.
.
I, I, I, I, I will brush off all the dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt.
And I, I, I, I, I will pretend it didn't hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt.
You, you, you, you, you, are a black and heavy weight, weight, weight, weight, weight, weight, weight.
And I, I, I, I, I, will not participate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate.
.
Dream brother, my killer, my lover. x2
.
I, I, I will battle for the sun, sun, sun, sun.
Cause I, I, I, have stared down the barrel of a gun, gun, gun, gun, gun, gun, gun.
No fun, you, you, you, you, you are a cheap and nasty fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, fake.
And I, I, I, I, I am the bones you couldnt break, break, break, break, break, break, break, break!
.
Dream brother, my killer, my lover. x6
.
I, I, I will battle for the sun.

04 For What It's Worth

The end of the century
I said my goodbyes
For what it's worth
.
I've always aimed to please
But I nearly died
For what it's worth
.
Come on lay with me
Caus I'm on fire
For what it's worth
.
I tear the sun in three
To light up your eyes
For what it's worth [4x]
.
Broke up the family
Everybody cry
For what it's worth
.
I have a slow disease
That sucked me dry
For what it's worth
.
Come on walk with me
Into the rising tide
For what it's worth
.
Fill the cavity
You god shaped hole tonight
For what it's worth [8x]
.
No one cares when you're out on the street
Picking up the pieces to make ends meet
No one cares when you're down in the gutter
Got no friends got no lover [2x]
.
For what it's worth got no lover [8x]
.
Got no friends got no lover

05 Devil in the Details

I've been wasting all my time
With the devil in the details
And I got no energy to fight
He's a fucking pantomime
The devil in the details
.
He's fixing up to take a bite
I don't see the point in trying
I got the devil in the details
And he's gonna teach me wrong from right
That fucking pantomime
The devil in the details
Well, I'm gonna dance with him tonight
.
[chorus]
All of my wrongs
No more wicked ways
Come back to haunt me, come what may
He wrote the songs
That I hoped to write someday
Looks like the devil's here to stay
.
Let me take you far away
With the devil in the details
We'll kiss and tremble with the light
Everything is fine
With the devil in the details
We're gonna dance with him tonight
.
[Chorus] x 3

I've been wasting all my time
With the devil in the details
I got no energy to fight

06 Bright Lights

Cast your mind back to the days,
When I pretend' I was OK.
I had so very much to say,
About my crazy livin'.
Now that I've stared into the void,
So many people, I've annoyed.
I have to find a middle way,
A better way of livin'.
.
So I haven't given up,
That all my choices, my good luck...
Appear to go and get me stuck,
In an open prison.
Now I am tryin' to break free,
In a state of empathy.
Find the true and enemy,
Eradicate this prison.
.
No-one can take it away from me,
And no-one can tear it apart.
'Cause a heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
.
A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
No-one can take it away from me,
No-one can tear it apart.
Maybe ' an elaborate fantasy,
But it's the perfect place to start.
.
'Cause a heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that... works.

07 Speak in Tongues

Kitty came back home from on the island
But kitty came on home without a name
She and me's a history for violence
So I long, I burn to touch her just the same
.
So we both can both can speak in tongues x2
.
Every single sense in me is heightened
There's nothing left inside to rearrange
Like a slave to history and science
I long, I burn to touch you just the same
.
So we both can both can speak in tongues x2
.
Until the universe is done
And the course of time has run
So we both can both can speak in tongues
.
Don't let them get their way
Don't let them have their way
You're beautiful and so blasé
So please don't let them have their way
Don't fall back into the decay
There is no law we must obey
So please don't let them have their way
Don't give in to yesterday
.
We can build a new tomorrow, today x 4

08 The Never-Ending Why

The atom will implode
The fragile kingdom fall
The tremor becomes a quake
There's a body in the lake
.
[chorus]
And as the two of us rebel
Damn you all to hell
I wonder if that's all there is
.
Time will help you through
But it doesn't have the time
To give you all the answers to the never-ending why
.
The sound of silence grows
As spiders kissing fly
And the tumor becomes a rhyme
But the kids are doing fine
.
[chorus]
.
Time will help you through
But it doesn't have the time
To give you all the answers to the never-ending why

09 Julien

The payback is here
Take a look, it's all around you
You thought you'd never she'd a tear
So this must astound, must confound you
.
Buy a ticket for the train
Hide in a suitcase if you have to
This ain't no singing in the rain
This is a twister that will destroy you
.
You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend in whom you can confide
Julien, you're a slow motion suicide
.
Fallen angels in the night
And every one is far from heaven
Just one more hit to make it right
But every one turns into seven
.
Now that's it's snowing in your brain
Even ten will not placate you
This ain't no cure for the pain
This avalanche will suffocate you
.
You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend on whom you can rely
Julien, you're being taken for a ride
.
You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend in whom you can confide
Julien, you're a slow motion suicide
Slow motion suicide...

10 Happy You're Gone

Breathe me
Everytime you close your eyes
Taste me
Every time you cry
This memory will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye
.
[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
.
See me
In the eyes of mother's child
Turn away
When you see me walkin' by
Once in a while
This melody will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye
.
[Chorus]
.
I don't even want to try
.
[Chorus]

11 Breathe Underwater

Here comes another fall from grace,
I'm always falling on my face.
This attitude that I embrace,
With a love I'm trying to replace.
Try to kill this song,
'Cause the melody's all wrong.
And there's a beaver, comin' on.
.
It's hard to reconcile,
What I've become.
With the wounded ch-i-ld,
Hiding deep ins-i-yide.
.
Breathe underwater,
I'm comin' up for air!
I wanna see another dawn,
Comin' up for air!
S-i-ck of the slaughter,
I'm comin' up for air!
'Cause I've floating here too long.
.
Take my ego for a ride,
'Cause there's nobody by my side.
It's getting hard to justify.
And it won't be long 'til I collide.
My weakness laid bare,
As people stop and stare.
But It's the last time, I swear.
.
It's hard to reconcile,
What I've become.
With the wounded ch-i-ld,
Hiding deep ins-i-yide.
.
Breathe underwater,
I'm comin' up for air!
I wanna see another dawn,
Comin' up for air!
S-i-ck of the slaughter,
I'm comin' up for air!
'Cause I've floating here too long.
.
Stop breathing... x3
Stop breath-ing!
.
Breathe underwater,
I'm comin' up for air!
I wanna see another dawn,
Comin' up for air!
S-i-ck of the slaughter,
I'm comin' up for air!
'Cause I've floating here too long.
.
I'm coming, I'm coming... ,
I'm coming, ' coming...
Comin' up for air...
Comin' up for air!
.
12 Come Undone

You don't know how you're coming across
You don't know what you're coming across
You don't know who you're coming across
You don't know how you're coming across
So you come undone
.
You don't know how you're coming across
Acting like you don't give a toss
Walking around like you're on some kind of cross
And it's a shame on you, the irony's lost
When you come undone
You come undone
You know, you come undone
You know, you know, you know
.
You don't know how you're coming across
You don't know how you're coming across
And I don't think that you're aware of the cost
.
So you come undone
You come
You come undone
You know, you know, you know

13 Kings of Medicine

They're pickin' up pieces of me,
While they're pickin' up pieces of you.
In a bag you will be, before the day is over.
Were you looking for somewhere to be.
Or looking for someone to do.
Stupid me, to believe that I could trust in stupid you.
And on the back of my hand,
Were, directions I could understand.
Now that old buzzard Johnny Walker,
Has gone and ruined all our plans.
Our best-made plans.
.
Don't leave me here, to cast through time,
Without a map, or road sign.
Don't leave me here, my guiding light,
'Cause I, I, wouldn't know where to begin.
I asked the Kings of Medicine.
.
They're pickin' up pieces of me,
While they're pickin' up pieces of you.
Lying on ice you will be before the day is over.
It's a case in point baby,
That you never thought it through.
Stupid me, that I could depend on stupid you.
And on the tip of my tongue,
Were, words that came out all wrong.
'Cause they were drowned in Southern Comfort,
Left to dry-out in the Sun,
The noon-day Sun.
.
Don't leave me here, to cast through time,
Without a map, or road sign.
Don't leave me here, my guiding light,
'Cause I, I, wouldn't know where to begin.
I asked the Kings of Medicine,
But it seems that they've lost their powers.
Now all I'm left with is the hour.
.
Don't leave me here, to cast through time,
Without a map, or road sign.
Don't leave me here, my guiding light,
'Cause I, I, wouldn't know where to begin.
I asked the Kings of Medicine,
But it seems that they have lost their powers.
Now all I'm left with is the hour.
.
Don't leave me here,
Don't leave me here, oh no-oh,
I wouldn't know where to begin.

14 Unisex
.
Do me right, by you
And I'll do you right, by heaven
Along the avenues
We run, run, run, run, run, run for our lives
.
Promise me that we will make it through
Promise me that we will make it through
.
Inside we are Picasso blue
Outisde it's armageddon
So all that we can do
Is run, run, run, run, run, run for our lives
.
Promise me that we will make it through
Promise me that we will make it through
If we don't, I don't know what I'd do
So promise me that we will make it through
.
Don't worry baby, it's just the end of the world
Don't worry baby, don't worry...
.
Do me right, by you
No matter what may happen
Forever more and hither hereunto
We run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run...
.
Don't worry baby, it's just the end of the world
Don't worry baby, this place is broken and absurd
.
Don't worry baby, it's just the end of the world
Don't worry baby, don't worry...
.
Do me right, by you
And I'll do you right, by heaven
.
15 The Movie On Your Eyelids
.
I always watch you when you're dreaming
Because I know it's not of me
I smoke a dozen cancer sticks
Imagine there are two or three ways
To make you love me
And not dream of someone else
Become the movie on your eyelids
.
The reflection of yourself
The reflection of yourself
.
I cry when I listen to you breathing
Because I know there's nothing else
The conscious of that crushing feeling
To know there's no connection left
That we both go through the motions
That we're both living somewhere else
That the movie on your eyelids
Is no reflection of myself
Is no reflection of myself
Is no reflection of myself
.
I wanna be, I wanna be your movie...
I wanna be, I wanna be your movie...
.
Why can't you be me?
Why can't you be me?
Why can't you be me?
Why can't you be me?
Be me, be me, be me...
