Mangan, Dan - Troubled Mind Lyrics




I can't take the heat, guess I got a troubled mind
History repeats and they say I got a troubled mind
And it won't let up, it's like a bad dream, they say I got a troubled mind
Shaking like a sad teen, gotta say I got a troubled mind

What the hell is wrong with everybody right now?
Everywhere I look, it's the same sound

Haunted by the melody, the melody
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me, ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me, gets ahead of me
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Haunted by the melody

Riots in the street, guess I got a troubled mind
And if history repeats, well you know I got a troubled mind
And it won't let up, and it won't let up, and it won't let up

What the hell is wrong with everybody right now?
Everywhere I look, it's the same sound

Haunted by the melody, the melody
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me, ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me, gets ahead of me
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me, ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me, gets ahead of me

Are we a force of nature,
Or just a sore in the mouth?
Are we the beautiful future?
I can't figure it out

Are we a force of nature,
Or just a sore in the mouth?
Are we the beautiful future?
I can't figure it out

What the hell is wrong with everybody right now?
Everywhere I look, it's the same sound

Haunted by the melody, the melody
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me, ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me, gets ahead of me
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me, ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me, gets ahead of me
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Haunted by the melody, the melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me, ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me, gets ahead of me

Are we the voice of reason,
Or just the faintest sound?
Are we the voice of reason?
I can't figure it out

    Mente perturbada

    Dan Mangan

    LETRA DA MÚSICA TROUBLED MIND

    [Verso 1]
    Eu não aguento mais, acho que tenho uma mente perturbada A
    história se repete e eles dizem que eu tenho uma mente perturbada
    E não vai parar, é como um pesadelo, eles dizem que eu tenho uma mente perturbada
    Tremendo como um adolescente triste, tenho que dizer que tenho uma mente perturbada

    [Pré-refrão]
    O que diabos há de errado com todo mundo agora?
    Em todo lugar que olho, é o mesmo som

    [Coro]
    Assombrado pela melodia, a melodia, assombrada pela melodia
    A melodia, às vezes, fica à minha
    frente À frente da minha mente, fica à minha frente, fica à minha frente,
    assombrada pela melodia, a melodia, assombrada pela melodia

    [Verso 2]
    Motins na rua, acho que tenho uma mente perturbada
    E se a história se repetir, bem, você sabe que eu tenho uma mente perturbada
    E não vai desistir
    E não vai deixar
    E não vai deixar

    [Pré-refrão]
    O que diabos há de errado com todo mundo agora?
    Em todo lugar que olho, é o mesmo som

    [Chorus]
    Assombrado pela melodia, a melodia, assombrada pela melodia
    A melodia - às vezes fica à minha
    frente À frente da minha mente, fica à minha frente, fica à minha frente

    [Bridge]
    Somos uma força da natureza? Ou apenas uma ferida na boca?
    Somos o futuro bonito? Não consigo entender.
    Somos uma força da natureza? Ou apenas uma ferida na boca?
    Somos o futuro bonito? Eu não consigo entender

    [Pré-refrão]
    O que diabos há de errado com todo mundo agora?
    (Somos uma força da natureza? Ou apenas uma ferida na boca?)
    Em todo lugar que olho, é o mesmo som
    (somos o futuro bonito? Não consigo entender)

    [Refrão]
    Assombrada pela melodia, a melodia, assombrada pela melodia
    (Somos uma força da natureza? Ou apenas uma ferida na boca?)
    A melodia, às vezes, fica à minha frente
    (Somos o futuro bonito? Não consigo imaginar -lo)
    à frente da minha mente, ele fica à frente de mim, fica à frente de mim

    assombrado pela melodia, a melodia, assombrado pela melodia
    (nós somos uma força da natureza? Ou apenas uma ferida na boca?)
    a melodia, às vezes fica à minha frente
    (somos o futuro bonito? Não consigo entender)
    À frente da minha mente, fica à minha frente, fica à minha frente

    Assombrada pela melodia, a melodia, assombrada pela melodia
    (Somos uma força da natureza? Ou apenas uma ferida na boca?)
    A melodia - às vezes fica à minha frente
    (Somos o futuro bonito? Não consigo imaginar -lo)
    à frente da minha mente, ele fica à frente de mim, fica à frente de mim

    [Outro]
    nós somos a voz da razão? Ou apenas o som mais fraco?
    Somos a voz da razão? Não consigo entender

  8. WeebSlayer

    *I will never not turn up to this song..*

  9. Andrew Stockell

    !One of my favourite artists!


    Thanks for the music my dude!


    But honestly...


    ???WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH EVERYBODY RIGHT NOW???

  10. Kane G

    part of a #CBBBUMP fan (a year later)

    Dan, keep doing what you're doing. I was 2 hrs away from your Aug 22, 2019 show in Canada and almost dropped everything to come see you but then the rational part of me knew I couldn't afford to. Shit, I would've loved it though.

  11. william johnston

    " what the hell is wrong with everybody right now" 39 ppl have no idea what music is

  12. Sassafras_wot

    noice! 15yo son told me to listen to this. just did. just wow. poignant, articulate, video made sense in context (thank you), and a wicked groove. woooo!!

  13. nico nico

    Heard this on cfox and I was like...shit I gotta find this!!! Amazing!

  14. Samantha Mitchell

    Seeing the footloose warehouse dance immortalized makes me very happy

  15. Bret Kenworthy

    This song is haunting. 11/10

  16. countrypaul

    Thank you for another excellent track. This yank listens to a lot of CBC and The Verge (on Sirius XM) so I'm fairly familiar with your excellent music. I too share your agonized frustration over how the world seems to be disintegrating from under us. We have an extreme political problem here in the US that most us did not vote for, but we who are aware hope it can be resolved at the voting booth post haste. In the meanwhile, I appreciate this track, an apocalypse we can dance to as the world as we know it ends. (Sorry to be an alarmist, but sadly, alarmists are always right eventually and this feels a lot like "eventually" to me.) Peace, love and rock & roll anyway....

  17. Sara Pistilli

    First listened to this song on The Edge and I loved it ever since

  18. Kevin Phillips

    Unreal tune! Does anyone else hear a little Interpol/Paul Banks in this song (in a very positive way!).

  19. James C Atreides

    Great song...surprisingly progressive for a 3 min tune

  20. robynozz

    Fabulous! Kudos from Canada!

  21. Michael Pan

    @1:57 the way she held onto that iPhone looks like video game physics 😂

  24. Invader Zim

    Me:
    How haunted is your mind?
    You: Yes.

  25. Henry Galka

    What the hell is wrong with the 36 people who gave the song a thumbs down, they must have troubled minds

  26. Lorraine Nygaard

    I'm usually pedalling my bike, so it was a treat to hear Trouble Mind on the car radio today. Having been impressed with it before, I turned the volume up and enjoyed every beat. What a video compilation too! Keep up the great work.

  36. Lars vonrinpoche

    Going to his show tonight! Thought I should hear some songs from his new album ( so I don't stand there like a potatoe because I don't know the songs) especially if it ends up being one of those shows where most stuff played is new ..those are the times when you don't know ANY new things. And the ENTIRE SHOW is a new album show. Sigh. My luck.

    This song tho...this video...great! Really impressed at his wide range.

  37. Paul Cairns

    Great video and fun tune. Has a nice spirit

    This is a fantastic song, it's been a long time since I've heard a new track on the radio and thought "I must cancel all of the plans and learn this song". The lyrics, production, and everything is so well done.

  51. melissa long

    I carried this track into the woods to run. The catharsis was pouring out of me as the adrenaline mounted and your words fell upon me. Thank you for making this little existential nihilist feel connected.

  52. Daniel Lacombe

    I really enjoyed this song. Thank you.

    Sykoze

    I came here to post this too! It came on the radio the other day and all I could think was how much it reminded of the Smiths!

    ththemoose123

    Yoooo sameeeee best station

  84. Mr. Jones

    15 minutes ago I was listening to Mouthpiece and thought to myself, I wonder if Dan released anything new since. So I entered a search on Spotify and found this. Every time I encounter a new release (especially after a while from previous encounter) by an artist I love and admire I click play with abated breath worried that it would be a let down, because it so often is, but Dan Mangan once again delights while keeping the bar high. This, as so many of his past efforts, speaks to me on a deeply personal level while at the same time excites me musically to make this a complete package that I'm going to enjoy for months to come.

    Dan Mangan Music

    thank you mr jones!!! i think i had you as my home room teacher in grade 5!

  85. ajax420336

    Awesome tune!

  86. Aindienne

    I can't stop listening to it. WOW !

  87. Bobbybobob

    Awesome song, awesome artist. This should have 6 million views!

  88. Shonna Morgan

    I heard this on CBC the other day and fell in love with it, and was so excited to hear it was your song! I heard of you first years back when my friend's son Chris Anguish did some kind of workshop with you..... Well done!

  89. Eduardo S. Reis

    I have seen all the movement on the Instagram, the heads on fire. And he was not understanding very well. Only today I had time to come here and listen to this. Very very good, in letter and rhythm. Already going to two of my lists: "Dan Mangan" and "Songs to start a bike ride." - As always, good work, Dan. - From a Troubled mind in Brasil.

  90. Smilla

    I love this a lot wow

  91. Kultur im Quadrat

    Great music! When will we see you back in Germany?

  92. Grant Duarte

    Does anyone know the chords for this yet? Looking for acoustic!

    Patrick Milloy

    Piece of cake.
    Check his live version of this song. he played it at some radio station.
    Dan makes it pretty easy to learn.

  93. McBuffCactusMan

    Another example of why Dan Mangan is one of my all time favorite artists and should be yours too.

  94. DropDeadGaming

    Love it!

  95. Kenneth Helfrich

    Heard this on 102.7 the peak

    Serena T

    Me too!! They’ve been playing this song lots lately, it’s how I found it!

  96. Kintsukuroi

    Genius. I love it.

  97. OstyToasty

    I stumbled across this song on reddit's r/listentothis . I just want to say it's been several years since a song hit me as hard as this one did. Solid work! I hope this blows up as much as it should.

    Dan Mangan Music

    love hearing stories like this.. stumbling upon new music is one of the best feelings.. reminds me of being a teenager and spending time in record shops

    NorthernWinds Project

    @Dan Mangan Music I did too. This song is honestly a major inspiration for what I'm trying to write. I typically listen to metal or math rock but I really love this sound.

  98. Grazi Sebben

    Brazill!! Ouvi em uma radio canadense e ❤

  99. Bailey Taylor

    Love the change of pace in this one Dan! Can't wait to hear what's next!
