Interpol – Rest My Chemistry

“I haven’t slept for two days
I’ve bathed in nothing but sweat
And I’ve made hallways scenes for things to regret
My friends they come
And the lines they go by

Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry

I live my life in cocaine
Just a rage and three kinds of yes
And I’ve made stairways
Such scenes for things that I regret
Oh, those days in the sun
They bring a tear to my eye

Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry

But you’re so young
You’re so young
You look in my eyes
You’re so young, so sweet, so surprised

I saw a sign says “OK”
Gotta take a ride just recline in the faraway
Got to take some time to realize
That my friends they come
And the lines they go by

Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry

But you’re so young
You’re so young
You look in my eyes
So young, so sweet, so surprised
You look so young like a daisy in my lazy eyes

Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry
Tonight I’m gonna rest my chemistry”

Static Thought – Drug of My Mind

Static Thought on jenkkipunkkibandi, joka perustettiin 2000-luvun alussa. Heidän ensimmäisen albuminsa avausbiisi käyttää huumeita metaforana oman itsensä “hukkaamisee”… tai jotain… ota näistä nyt sitten selvää.

“The trouble I cause it’s so plain to see,
that I create my own misery.
The life in myself, itäs like being poor,
no food to eat, no drugs to score.

I try to be strong and do what’s right,
but most of my goals end in a fight.
Like a junkie looking for dope,
the drug of my mind, I just can’t cope.

I’m loosing myself in my own misery.
The life I live no longer I can see.
And like a junkie looking for dope,
the drug of my mind, I just can’t cope.

There must be something positive to this mess.
The light at the end where I’m no longer depressed.
After I fall I always get back up.
This is what makde me so fucking though.

Music is my drug, it’s helped me through and through.
I hope this music will help you too.
But until I’m cured from this drug in my mind.
All my preaching is such a waste of time.

The time came when I had to make a choice.
And when my voice gave way to my brain spat out on image
of a man crying on the steps of a church.
Lying in the pursuit of dying, but when he turned around I realized it was me.”

Porcupine Tree – Fear Of a Blank Planet

Kappale kertoo kertoo nuoresta joka kärsii kaksisuuntaisesta mielialahäiriöstä. Hänen mielestään mikään ei enää tunnu miltään, kaikki on turhaa, eikä mihinkään voi enää keskittyä. Pelit, pornografia ja seksi tuntuu hänelle merkityksettömältä ja tylsältä Ainoa pakokeino on nimeämättömät reseptilääkkeet. Oletettavasti masennus -eli SSRI lääkkeitä.

Koko albumi on keskeytyy samankaltaisten aiheiden ympärille

Mary Magdalan – Rehab

Biisi kertoo kaverista, joka käyttää tasan kaikkea mitä löytyy ja enemmän.

“I can’t help but to help myself I’m losing my mind I need help
filling my mind with doubt I’d do anything to get out”
