Massive Attack - False Flags Lyrics




In city shoes of clueless blues
Pays the views and no man's news
Blades will fade from blood to sport
The heroin's cut these fuses short

Smokers rode a colonial pig
Drink and frame, this pain I think
I'm melting silver poles my dear
You bleed your wings and then disappear

The moving scenes and pilot lights
Smithereens have got 'em scaling heights
Modern times come talk me down
And battle lines are drawn across this town

Parisian boys without your names
Ghetto stones instead of chains
Talk 'em down 'cause it's up in flames
And nothing's changed

Parisian boys without your names
Riot like 1968 again
The days of rage, yeah, nothing's changed
Well pretty flames

In school, I would just bite my tongue
And now your words, they strike me down
The flags are false and they contradict
They point and click which wounds to lick

On avenues, this Christian breeze
Turns its heart to more needles please
Our eyes roll back and we beg for more
It frays this skin and then underscore

The case for war you spin and bleed
The cells you fill screen savers feed
The girls you breed, the soaps that you write
The graceless charm of your gutter snipes

The moving scenes and suburbanites
And smithereens got 'em scaling heights
Modern times come talk me down
The battle lines are drawn across this town

English boys without your names
Ghetto stones instead of chains
Hearts and minds, and U.S. planes
Nothing's changed

And English boys without your names
Riot like the 1980's again
The days of rage, yeah, nothing's changed
More pretty flames

    Это видео позволяет многим молодым людям (и не только молодым) предметно и пристально рассмотреть свои навязчивые состояния. Поздравляю авторов с удачей. Надеюсь, власти США Вас не привлекали к уголовной ответственности за пропаганду терроризма.

    This video made me thinking of the protesters fighting against the tyranny, CCP. The government of Hong Kong and China make the youths know that peacefully rally is useless. Hongkongers have no choice to step back.

    Исполнитель: Massive Attack
    Перевод песни: False Flags
    In city shoes of clueless blues В городских ботинках, не подозревая о грусти
    Pays the views and no man's news Платит за просмотры и никому не известные новости
    Blades will fade from blood to sport Лезвия затупятся от крови до спорта
    The heroin's cut these fuses short Героин срывает предохранители
    Smokers rode a colonial pig Курильщики едут на колониальном поросёнке
    Drink and frame, this pain I think Пьют и наслаждаются славой, это причиняет боль, я думаю
    I'm melting silver poles my dear Я расплавляю серебряные полюса, моя дорогая
    You bleed your wings and then disappear Твои крылья истекают кровью, и ты исчезаешь
    The moving scenes and pilot lights Движущиеся сцены и пилотные огни
    Smithereens have got 'em scaling heights Осколки заставили их измерять высоты
    Modern times come talk me down Современные имена настали, хотят опорочить моё имя
    And battle lines are drawn across this town И поле битвы - этот город
    Parisian boys without your names Ребята из Парижа, мы не знаем их имён
    Ghetto stones instead of chains Камни гетто вместо цепей
    Talk 'em down 'cause it's up in flames Оговори их, ведь вздымаются языки пламени
    And nothing's changed И ничего не изменилось
    Parisian boys without your names Ребята из Парижа, мы не знаем их имён
    Riot like 1968 again Снова бунтуют как в 1968
    The days of rage, yeah, nothing's changed В дни ярости, да, всё по-прежнему
    Well pretty flames Вздымаются вверх языки пламени
    In school, I would just bite my tongue В школе я бы просто прикусил язык
    And now your words, they strike me down А теперь твои слова убивают меня
    The flags are false and they contradict Флаги - фальшивка, они противоречат
    They point and click which wounds to lick Они указывают на то, какие раны зализывать
    On avenues, this Christian breeze На проспектах христианский бриз
    Turns its heart to more needles please Обрати своё сердце к более нуждающимся
    Our eyes roll back and we beg for more Наши глаза закатываются, и мы просим о большем
    It frays this skin and then underscore Это теряет свою значимость, а затем снова становится важным
    The case for war you spin and bleed Случай для войны; ты вертишься и истекаешь кровью
    The cells you fill screen savers feed Клетки, которые ты наполняешь, питают дисплеи
    The girls you breed, the soaps that you write Девушки, которых ты выращиваешь, сериалы, сценарии которых сочиняешь
    The graceless charm of your gutter snipes Непривлекательный шарм убийц твоей храбрости
    The moving scenes and suburbanites Основные сцены и жители пригорода
    And smithereens got 'em scaling heights Осколки заставили их измерять высоты
    Modern times come talk me down Современные имена настали, хотят опорочить моё имя
    The battle lines are drawn across this town И поле битвы - этот город
    English boys without your names Ребята из Англии, мы не знаем их имён
    Ghetto stones instead of chains Камни гетто вместо цепей
    Hearts and minds, and U.S. planes Сердца и умы, и американские самолёты
    Nothing's changed Ничего не изменилось
    And English boys without your names Ребята из Англии, мы не знаем их имён
    Riot like the 1980's again Снова бунтуют как в 1980х
    The days of rage, yeah, nothing's changed В дни ярости, да, всё по-прежнему
    More pretty flames Снова вздымаются вверх языки пламени

  39. GABRIEL RIVER

    En zapatos urbanos de azules despistados
    Paga los puntos de vista y las noticias de nadie
    Las cuchillas se desvanecerán de la sangre al deporte
    La heroína corta estos fusibles cortos
    Los fumadores montaron un cerdo colonial
    Beber y enmarcar, este dolor, creo
    Me estoy derritiendo los postes de plata querida
    Sangras tus alas y luego desapareces
    Las escenas en movimiento y luces piloto
    A smithereens les han escalado alturas
    Los tiempos modernos vienen a convencerme
    Y las líneas de batalla se dibujan a través de esta ciudad
    Muchachos parisinos sin tus nombres
    Piedras de gueto en lugar de cadenas
    Háblales porque está en llamas
    Y nada ha cambiado
    Muchachos parisinos sin tus nombres
    Alboroto como 1968 otra vez
    Los días de ira, sí, nada ha cambiado
    Llamas bien bonitas
    En la escuela, solo me muerdo la lengua
    Y ahora tus palabras, me golpean
    Las banderas son falsas y contradicen
    Señalan y hacen clic en las heridas para lamer
    En avenidas, esta brisa cristiana
    Convierte su corazón en más agujas por favor
    Nuestros ojos retroceden y pedimos más
    Deshilacha esta piel y luego subraya
    El caso de la guerra te da vueltas y sangras
    Las células que llene los salvapantallas se alimentan
    Las chicas que crías, los jabones que escribes
    El encanto sin gracia de tus esquineras
    Las escenas en movimiento y los suburbanos
    Y añicos les dieron escalar alturas
    Los tiempos modernos vienen a convencerme
    Las líneas de batalla se dibujan a través de esta ciudad
    Chicos ingleses sin tus nombres
    Piedras de gueto en lugar de cadenas
    Corazones y mentes, y aviones de EE. UU.
    Nada ha cambiado
    Y chicos ingleses sin tus nombres
    Disturbios como los años 80 otra vez
    Los días de ira, sí, nada ha cambiado
    Más bonitas llamas...

    I wonder what was on his mind, when writing this great eye opening song. 911 or attack on USS LIBERTY?

  60. Плутарко Фарше

    In city shoes of clueless blues
    Pays the views and no man's news
    Blades will fade from blood to sport
    The heroin's cut these fuses short

    Smokers rode a colonial pig
    Drink and frame, this pain I think
    I'm melting silver poles my dear
    You bleed your wings and then disappear

    The moving scenes and pilot lights
    Smithereens have got 'em scaling heights
    Modern times come talk me down
    And battle lines are drawn across this town

    Parisian boys without your names
    Ghetto stones instead of chains
    Talk 'em down 'cause it's up in flames
    And nothing's changed

    Parisian boys without your names
    Riot like 1968 again
    The days of rage, yeah, nothing's changed
    Well pretty flames

    In school, I would just bite my tongue
    And now your words, they strike me down
    The flags are false and they contradict
    They point and click which wounds to lick

    On avenues, this Christian breeze
    Turns its heart to more needles please
    Our eyes roll back and we beg for more
    It frays this skin and then underscore

    The case for war you spin and bleed
    The cells you fill screen savers feed
    The girls you breed, the soaps that you write
    The graceless charm of your gutter snipes

    The moving scenes and suburbanites
    And smithereens got 'em scaling heights
    Modern times come talk me down
    The battle lines are drawn across this town

    English boys without your names
    Ghetto stones instead of chains
    Hearts and minds, and U.S. planes
    Nothing's changed

    Hard to decide and say which song by Massive Attack is the best....

    marius abel

    did you ever got to a favorite one? please share :)

  92. Martin Homola

    I was hoping music is above the politics. Especially bands like Masive Attack :( It's like a band that you adored for 20 years is throwing molotovs back at you (cause CZ stays in EU). Kinda sad. I don't want to see boundaries when it comes to music. Should be universal.

    Sergio S

    The message is universal
