rock independant,

Cette chanson est inspiré du roman Moins que zéro (Less Than Zero) de Bret Easton Ellis dont le personnage principal s'appelle Clay (Clayton). Disappear Here (Disparaître ici) est une expression qui revient plusieurs fois dans ce roman.

Dans Song for Clay de Bloc Party, des références aux thèmes du livre de la jeunesse, de l'indulgence excessive et de l'exploration d'Ellis de l'omniprésence de la première culture MTV - qui, comme les réseaux sociaux d'aujourd'hui, ont eu un impact énorme sur les adolescents dans les années 1980.

I am trying to be heroic in an age of modernity
I am trying to be heroic, because all around me history sings
So I enjoyed and I devoured flesh and wine and luxury
But in my heart I am lukewarm nothing ever really touches me
At Les Trois Garçons
We meet at precisely
9 o'clock.
I order the foie gras and I eat it with complete disdain
Bubbles rise in champagne flutes,
But when we kiss I feel nothing
Feasting on sleeping pills and Marlboro Reds
(So busy, won't save you)
Oho, How our, how our parents they suffered for nothing
Live the dream, live the dream, live the dream
Like the 80's never happened
People are afraid, are afraid
To merge on the freeway
Disappear here
Stroll the pier
Into the magazine launch party
I am handed a pill, and I swallow with complete disdain
Kick-drum bangs off the high-hat; remembered to look bored
We suck each others' faces and make sure we are noticed
(Cocaine won't save you)
Because East London is a vampire
It sucks the joy right out of me
How we look for corruption in these golden years
Oho, How our, how our parents they suffered for nothing
Live the dream, live the dream, live the dream
Like the 80's never happened
People are afraid, are afraid
To merge on the freeway
Disappear here.
Disappear here.
Disappear here.
Disappear here.
Disappear here.

The Wombats sont trois Anglo-Norvegiens, ils pratiquent le indie rock de Liverpool, en Angleterre. Ils se sont rencontrés les 3 à l'Institut des Arts de Liverpool. L'école leur a donné la chance de jouer devant plus de 20,000 personnes en Chine. C'était un de leur premier voyage et d'avoir joué en dehors de La Grande Bretagne.

Turn' est le deuxième morceau de l'album qui sortira l'année prochaine.

Paroles

 

I jump from thought to thought like a flea jumps to a light
You could give an aspirin the headache of its life
Maybe it's the crazy that I'd miss
Watering plastic plants in the hope that they'll grow
Seeing a message flash and then smashing up my phone
Maybe it's the crazy that I'd miss
It won't get better than this
I like the way your brain works, I like the way you try
To run with the wolf pack when your legs are tired
I like the way you turn me inside and out
I like the way you turn
I like the way your brain works
I like the way your brain works
I want to get college girl drunk tonight
No morning fears, no mountains to climb
They say the best memories are the ones that we forget
Like listening to Drake at your best friend's swimming pool
Floating anti-clockwise in a red mushroom
Maybe it's the crazy that I'd miss
It won't get better than this
I like the way your brain works, I like the way you try
To run with the wolf pack when your legs are tired
I like the way you turn me inside and out
I like the way you turn
I like the way your brain works
I like the way your brain works
Baby, it's the crazy I like
I think I saw the world turn in your eyes
Baby, it's the crazy I like
And maybe it's the bullshit I'd miss
Screaming at the moon in black lipstick
Maybe it's the bullshit I'd miss
It won't get better than this
Paroliers : Blake Preston Harnage / Matthew Edward Murphy / Micah Rayan Premnath
