I shiver and shake through warm or cold

I'm alone, on my own

In every mistake I dig this hole

through my skin and bones

it's harder starting over

than never to have changed.

 

With blackbirds following me

I'm digging out my grave

they close in, swallowing me

the pain it comes in waves

I'm getting back what I gave

 

I sweat through the sheet as daylight fades

as I waste away

they trapped me inside mistakes I made

thats the price I paid

its harder starting over

than never to have changed

 

With blackbirds following me

I'm digging out my grave

they close in, swallowing me

the pain it comes in waves

I'm getting back what I gave

 

I drop to the floor like I did before

Stop ----------------------- and I can't be more

What I want and what I need are a constant war

Like a well full of poison, --------------------

The blood goes thin, the fever stings

and I shake from the hell that the habits bring

lay the sick ones down, the bells will ring

put pennies on the eyes let the dead men sing.

 

With blackbirds following me

I'm getting back what I gave

I'm getting back what I gave

 

Not much can be made out of what the intro is, it's too distorted. We'll have to wait until we can hear better quality.

Rough interpretation of lyrics, changed it a bit since my initial post in the 8-Bit Release thread..

 

Here's mine...changed it a bit to what you put since I some of your parts make more sense.

 

Drop like get up(?)

Take to the streets

On Iraq(?), yeah, get up

Face full of teeth

When it's hot(?), yeah, spit up

Tasting the beat(or heat?)

Like a beast(?)

(No idea what he's saying here..)

Speak from your gut like a rush of blood

Gave red on the (something) to the ones you love

Lay the sick ones down and the bells will ring

Put pennies on their eyes, let the dead men sing

 

 

I shiver and shake through warm and cold

I'm alone

On my own

In every mistake I dig this hole through my skin

And bones

 

It's harder starting over

Than never to have changed

 

With blackbirds following me

I'm digging out my grave (or brain?)

They close in, swallowing me

The pain, it comes in waves

I'm getting back what I gave

 

I sweat through the sheet as daylight fades

As I waste away

It traps me inside mistakes I made

That's the price I pay

 

It's harder starting over

Than never to have changed

 

With blackbirds following me

I'm digging out my grave (or brain?)

They close in, swallowing me

The pain, it comes in waves

I'm getting back what I gave

 

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 a 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

Lay the sick ones down

The bells will ring

Put pennies on their eyes, let the dead men sing

I really like it! Chester doesn't need to be screaming in every song!!

This. It seems like sometimes LP fans will be satisfied with anything as long as there is screaming, no matter the lyrics or song structure.

I would love to get the full song if possible.

The only possible way to get it is to buy the game, finish it and listen to the song...

If you think otherwise - read the bolded text in main post of this thred and get ready for a suspension ;)

Weird intro, good song, but like I said in the other thread, LP would need to go heavy again. Not especially in the HT style, but heavy. Come on, 90% of their songs since the MTM-era are mellows...I don't have nothing against soft music, but too much is too much. How will become the live shows if LP continues to put out pop songs like that? Boring, simply boring.

 

EDit: anyway, I like Blackbirds on its own. Soft LP tracks are generally good, but the problem is they ONLY release soft songs since 2007. Where is variety?

I was surprised on the intro. I thought that 1990-ish recording quality will last till the end xD . But I was wrong. The song is great! 8.7/10 ! Mike's rapping is back!

*cough*Given Up*cough*

 

 

Oh and anymore listening to Blackbirds, the beginning is apprantly supposed to sound like Mike is rapping from far away. You don't have crappy quality (or at least a really bad one)

Now this song is the best of the mid tempo tracks that LP has released lately, and Mike's rapping makes it even

better. I just don't want another Mid tempo track..from now on I want some heavy shit. Blackbirds is very nice though, I like the fort minor feel combined with Chester's awesomeness

I really like the song. The lyrics are strong and Mike's rap is nice, though I felt the song could have done without his intro freestyle. I will say that musically it stayed a straight line but it worked for the harmonies and lyrics. Overall, I'd give it a 8/10

 

After seeing the trailer, they had be believing that Mike would be rapping the song's verses. I think we were all suckered by that.
