Blackbirds

黑色的鸟

Written by Huang, posted on September 14, 2022

也许是追忆,也许是战争,也许是伤痛……那不详的东西追随着——我的梦魇,将我置于死地。

Blackbirds by Linkin Park. (仅翻译 Chester Bennington 的部分, 翻译得很一般)

background

Intro

Drop like “get up”, take to the streets
Better lock that kid up, face full of teeth
When he hock that spit up, pacing the beat like a beast
Rocking the block on repeat

Speak from the cut like a rush of blood
Paint red on the sleeves of the ones you love
Lay the sick ones down and the bells will ring
Put pennies on the eyes, let the dead men sing

Verse 1

I shiver and shake the warm air cold
温暖的空气中,我因寒冷不断颤抖

I’m alone on my own
我形单影只

In every mistake, I dig this hole
Through my skin and bones
每犯下罪孽,我就挖这个洞
用我的皮肤和骨头

Pre-Chorus

It’s harder starting over
Than never to have changed
困难的是重新开始
而非从未开始

Chorus

With blackbirds following me
黑色的鸟已经找上我了

I’m digging out my grave
我在自掘坟墓

They close in, swallowing me
他们来了,他们在吞噬我

The pain, it comes in waves
痛苦像浪潮般袭来

I’m getting back what I gave
我罪有应得

Verse 2

I sweat through the sheet as daylight fades
As I waste away
夜幕降临,我已汗流浃背
光亮溜走了

It traps me inside mistakes I’ve made
它让我完全陷入那罪孽中

That’s the price I pay
这[死亡]就是我的所付出的代价

Pre-Chorus

It’s harder starting over
Than never to have changed
困难的是重新开始
而非从未开始

Chorus

With blackbirds following me
黑色的鸟已经找上我了

I’m digging out my grave
我在自掘坟墓

They close in, swallowing me
他们来了,他们在吞噬我

The pain, it comes in waves
痛苦像浪潮般袭来

I’m getting back what I gave
我罪有应得

Bridge

I drop to the floor like I did before
Stop watching, I’m coughing, I can’t be more
What I want and what I need are at constant war
Like a well full of poison, a rotten core

The blood goes thin, the fever stings
And I shake from the hell that the habits bring
Let the sick ones down, the bells will ring
Put pennies on the eyes, let the dead men sing

Chorus

With blackbirds following me
黑色的鸟已经找上我了

I’m digging out my grave
我在自掘坟墓

They close in, swallowing me
他们来了,他们在吞噬我

The pain, it comes in waves
痛苦像浪潮般袭来

I’m getting back what I gave
我罪有应得

Outro

I’m getting back what I gave
I’m getting back what I gave
I’m getting back what I gave
死亡是我的归宿
