Jumping the shark是一首原本要收到aim and ignite中但沒有入選的一首歌,先前在youtube上聽到之後,我很喜歡。

  有些人可能覺得這首歌很耳熟,沒錯,Eminem的那首Headlights即是用了這首歌,Nate同時改寫了歌詞,雖然Headlights比較紅,但我還是喜歡Nate自己的版本,Jumping the Shark。

 

  剛剛說過這首歌本來要收進Aim and ignite,可以在歌中聽見屬於aim and ignite的譬喻或關聯詞,像是「'Cause I put more faith in TV shows than I ever have some holy ghost 因為比起那些聖經裡說的鬼魂,我更喜歡相信電視影集的靈異鬼神」,裏頭所說的Holy ghosts和Benson Hedges一樣,尤其FUN.又喜歡將每張專輯的每首歌做牽連。

  我認為這首歌所講的是信仰,也就是宗教。Nate的母親從小便灌輸Nate宗教的觀念,相信上帝、相信神,但等到Nate長大後,他開始對宗教產生懷疑,虔誠的信教,為甚麼他的人生仍舊一落千丈?他雖然知道這會讓母親失望,但他仍舊想要放棄信仰,相信這是發生在Nate的低潮期,他墜落至谷底。

 

 

 

Jumping the Shark 墜落谷底

 

Mom, I know I let you down

媽,又讓你失望了吧

And though you say these days are happy

雖然妳總說這些日子是很快樂的

Why's the power off and I'm fucked up and

但為甚麼,燈火都熄了,我也開始腐爛了呢?

Mom, I know I made dad proud

媽,我知道我讓爸很驕傲

Never say your son's a preacher

但妳可別說妳兒子是上帝的使者

When the boy can't fill his sleep

因為妳兒子他,每晚都罪惡地無法沉睡

 

Oh I said

噢,我說

I started jumping the shark

我開始墜落谷底

I started jumping the shark

到達了頂點,我開始墜落谷底

I started jumping the shark

我開始墜落

I want a new life

我想要重新來過。

 

I started jumping the shark

我開始墜落谷底

I started jumping the shark

到達了頂點,我開始墜落谷底

I started jumping the shark

我開始墜落

I want a new life

我想要新的人生。

 

One as an adult

我現在是個懂事的成人了

So I'm coming home tonight

今晚,我會記得回家

No matter what the cost

不論代價如何皆無法阻擋

And if the plane goes down

即使飛機墜落粉碎

Or if the crew can't wake me up

即使我的團員叫不醒我

Just know that I'm alright

媽,記得,我很好

Oh I was not afraid to die

還記得我說過我不怕死嗎?

And even if there's songs to sing

即使歌單上還有歌等著我去唱

Or grandchildren you'll never meet

即使還有妳期望抱到的孫兒

It might not be that time, no I was not afraid to die

或許這次真的不是時候吧 我並不害怕死亡

'Cause I put more faith in TV shows than I ever have some holy ghost

因為比起那些聖經裡說的鬼魂,我更喜歡相信電視影集的靈異鬼神

You know you've played a part

妳也知道,妳已經做好妳的角色了

But after everything went dark

只是在整個世界都黯淡下來時

I started, I started....

我還是開始,我開始...

 

I started jumping the shark

我開始墜落谷底

I started jumping the shark

我開始墜落。
