~《The Catalyst》~

Written by Linkin Park

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
No

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
No

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
(God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
Oh)
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

God save us everyone,
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
For the sins of our hand
The sins of our tongue
The sins of our father
The sins of our young
No

God save us everyone,
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
For the sins of our hand
The sins of our tongue
The sins of our father
The sins of our young
No

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
(God save us everyone,
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
Oh)
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky


Lift me up
Let me go (x10)

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
No

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun

一句短評:依舊夠力的Linkin Park,『歷練』帶出音樂新的"價值"!!

      一段時間未發片的Linkin Park,一有發片的消息,隨即掀起一陣討論聲浪,不管是好的評價或是批評,他們的音樂依舊佔有很重要的地位,至少我是如此認為的。

      第一首搶先曝光的《The Catalyst》所呈現的氛圍是黑暗、混亂的,這應該也是整張專輯的核心概念。"the catalyst"一般中文譯為"催化劑"或是"導火線",整首歌雖然沒有出現"catalyst"這個字,但卻是整首歌所要表達的概念 ─『利益爭奪的催化劑、混亂戰爭的導火線』,因此整首歌呈現濃濃的『反戰』意念,儼然是上一張的《What I've Done》的延續版,Linkin Park似乎要將"人道關懷和環保"與"搖滾"做一個融合,為這個社會做一些有意義的事情!!狂放的編曲、強勁的旋律、人道的歌詞、爆發力的嗓音,這首歌的企圖心和實力都很不錯,尤其是最後一段的掙扎嘶吼,反覆重複,流露出巨大的痛苦,然而這似乎是一種呼喊,祈禱著上帝、神祇能帶領人類脫離這紛亂的世界!!

        搖滾到底,無論你喜不喜歡Linkin Park,都希望你可以駐足聽一聽這首歌曲。

推薦評分:90/100
