O melodie faină: Jack Johnson: Sleep Through The Static

Descoperită în dimineaţa asta, la cafea, melodia lui Jack Johnson, SLEEP THROUGH THE STATIC, mi-a înveselit ziua. Ceea ce vă doresc şi vouă.

Mai jos, versurile.

Trouble travels fast
When you’re specially designed for crash testing
Or wearing wool sunglasses in the afternoon
Come on and tell us what you’re trying to prove

Because it’s a battle when you dabble in war
You store it up, unleash it, then you piece it together
Whether the storm drain running rampant just stamp it
And send it to somebody who’s pretending to care

Just cash in your blanks for little toy tanks
Learn how to use them, then abuse them and choose them
Over conversations relationships are overrated
“I hated everyone” said the sun

And so I will cook all your books
You’re too good looking and mistooken
You could watch it instead
From the comfort of your burning beds
…Or you can sleep through the static

Who needs sleep when we’ve got love?
Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs?
Who needs please when we’ve got guns?
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above
But beyond where we should have gone?
We went beyond where we should have gone

Stuck between channels my thoughts all quit

I thought about them too much, allowed them to touch
The feelings that rained down on the plains all dried and cracked
Waiting for things that never came

Shock and awful thing to make somebody think
That they have to choose pushing for peace supporting the troops
And either you’re weak or you’ll use brut force-feed the truth
The truth is we say not as we do

We say anytime, anywhere, just show your teeth and strike the fear
Of god wears camouflage, cries at night and drives a dodge
Pick up the beat and stop hogging the feast
That’s no way to treat an enemy

Well mighty mighty appetite
we just eat ‘em up and keep on driving
Freedom can be freezing take a picture from the pretty side
Mind your manners wave your banners
What a wonderful world that this angle can see

But who needs to see what we’ve done?
Who needs please when we’ve got guns?
Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs?
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above
But beyond where we should have gone?
Beyond where we should have gone
We went beyond where we should have gone
Beyond where we should have gone.

    Daca tot “scriezi” thru in loc de through atunci scrie si slip .
    Si-asa limbajul de mess si blog a devenit pericol pentru limba romana , acum ‘atacati si limba engleza?

    Mă pregăteam să fac urât, dar ai dreptate. :P Modific acum, my bad, credeam că aşa se numeşte albumul, dar au scris greşit alţii şi eu am preluat cu tot cu greşeală.
    Pa. :D

    Yeah, right! De parca, intr-un mod abstarct, cuvintele sunt mai importante decat insasi esenta lor. Nu conteaza cum scrii intr-atat cat conteaza ceea ce, de fapt, comunici.

    So… thru or no through is really of little importance. Let’s focus on the message, shall we? :D

    Super faina piesa. Mersi! :D
