“Social Cues” by Cage the Elephant

MATT SHULTZ, певецът на американската рок група CAGE THE ELEPHANT, се развежда с жена си, френската актриса и модел Juliette Buchs, след седем години брак. Това събитие, наред със самоубийството на двама от най-близките му приятели по това време, намира отражение не само в текстовете на песните, но и в музикалната стилистика на техния пети студиен албум „SOCIAL CUES“ („СОЦИАЛНИ СИГНАЛИ“), който звучи доста по-мрачно. Освен развода тук откриваме и темите за славата, чувството да си аутсайдер (MATT и брат му BRAD, китарист в CAGE THE ELEPHANT, са израсли в бедно семейство), за депресията, изневярата, а също така бягството и криенето от собствените страхове.

CAGE THE ELEPHANT са добре познати сред по-младата аудитория на нашето предаване с умелото съчетание на много от звуковите характеристики на алтернативния рок с hip-hop и поп елементи, и благодарение на това успяват да се наредят сред знаковите за второто десетилетие на ХХІ век indie групи. Родом от щата Kentucky, те намират своето първо поприще за изява в Англия, където издават дебютния си албум през 2008 г., приковал вниманието на слушателите и специализираните музикални издания от двете страни на Атлантика, ставайки платинен по брой продажби в САЩ. Тяхната музика тогава я оприличават на хибрид между White Stripes и Beck, и скоро става постоянно звучаща на вълните на американските радиостанции за модерен рок. Следващите два албума също регистрират рекордни продажби със статус „златни“, а последните им издания носят и две отличия “Grammy”.

Заглавията на песните в албума „СОЦИАЛНИ СИГНАЛИ“ и тяхното съдържание още с първото заглавие \"BROKEN BOY\" („СЧУПЕНО МОМЧЕ“) ни въвеждат в драмата на MATT SHULTZ. По-нататък долавяме натиска върху него в заглавната песен и очакванията на обществото като към известна личност, за да чуем в „BLACK MADONNA“ („ЧЕРНАТА МАДОНА“) признанието: „Няма къде да избягаш, няма къде да се скриеш, не се забавляваш, мисля, че ти трябва да се метнеш на мотора, обади ми се, когато си готов да станеш истински“. В „NIGHT RUNNING“ („НОЩНО БЯГАНЕ“), в която участва и певецът BECK, си спомняме за онези моменти, когато всичко изглежда е било наред и би могло да се оправи, и само ако беше възможно да се бутилира тази моментна надежда за по-късно, когато нещата вече не са такива.

Минаваме през „READY TO LET GO“ („ГОТОВ СЪМ ДА ТЕ ПУСНА“) и „HOUSE OF GLASS“ (“СТЪКЛЕНАТА КЪЩА“), “LOVE’S THE ONLY WAY” („ЛЮБОВТА Е ЕДИНСТВЕНИЯТ НАЧИН“) и “THE WAR IS OVER” („ВОЙНАТА СВЪРШИ“), за да стигнем до финала, който закономерно се казва “GOODBYE” („СБОГОМ“): \"Изглежда, че вчера бях дете, просто вълничка във времето. Желая те всичко хубаво, искам да те видя да се усмихваш! Всичко е наред, сбогом!\"

Чувствата, които бушуват в MATT SHULTZ, са толкова силни, че той прави само една проба на последната песен, която изпълнява през сълзи, преди да изчезне от студиото за три седмици.

За участие са привлечени струнен оркестър с диригент DAVID CAMPBELL, който прави и оркестрациите, вокалната група W. CRIMM SINGERS, както и певецът и композиторът BECK.

Албума „SOCIAL CUES“, или „СОЦИАЛНИ СИГНАЛИ“, отличен с наградата “Grammy” за най-добър рок албум през 2020 г., ще чуем в предаването “Картини от една изложба®” по програма “Хоризонт” на БНР в събота, 17 октомври, този път след новините от 16 ч.

LYRICS:

Broken Boy

[Pre-Chorus]
I was born on the wrong side of the train tracks
I was raised with a strap across my back
Lay me on my side or hold me up to the light, yeah
I was burned by the cold kiss of a vampire
I was bit by the whisper of a soft liar
Any good friend of yours is a good friend of mine

[Chorus]
Broken boy, how does it feel?
Broken boy, how does it feel? How does it feel?

[Verse]
Tell me why I m forced to live in this skin
Tell me why I’m forced to live in this skin
I m an alien, I m just an alien, oh
Tell me why I was born to live in this skin
Tell me how I’m supposed to be forgiven
With my hand in the hive and the sun in my eyes, yeah

[Chorus]
Broken boy, how does it feel?
Broken boy, how does it feel? How does it feel?

[Pre-Chorus]
I was born on the wrong side of the train tracks
Always born on the wrong side of the train tracks
Lay me on my side or hold me up to the light, yeah
I was burned by the cold kiss of a vampire
I was promised the keys to an empire
Any good friend of yours is a good friend of mine, oh


[Chorus]
Broken boy, how does it feel?
Broken boy, how does it feel? How does it feel?

 

Social Cues

[Verse 1]
I think it s strange when people say
You re the next big thing, you ll never fade
The slightest touch, forced to fold
Sleight of the hand, modern gold

[Pre-Chorus]
Starry-eyed child left behind
Choose your favorite vice
I don t have the strength to play nice

[Chorus]
Hide me in the back room, tell me when it s over
Don t know if I can play this part much longer
I ll be in the back room, tell me when it s over
Don t know if I can play this part much longer
I don t know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I ll be in the back room, tell me when it s over
People always say, "Man, at least you re on the radio"

[Post-Chorus]
At least you re on the radio, oh
At least you re on the radio, huh
At least you re on the radio, oh

[Verse 2]
Close your eyes, don t be afraid
Take some of these, they ll ease the pain
Live fast, die young, pay the price
The best die young, immortalized

[Pre-Chorus]
Starry-eyed children left behind
To choose their favorite vice
I don t have the strength to think twice

[Chorus]
Hide me in the back room, tell me when it s over
Don t know if I can play this part much longer
I ll be in the back room, tell me when it s over
Don t know if I can play this part much longer
I don t know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I ll be in the back room, tell me when it s over
People always say, "Man, at least you re on the radio"

[Post-Chorus]
At least you re on the radio, oh
At least you re on the radio, huh

[Chorus]
Hide me in the back room, tell me when it s over
Don t know if I can play this part much longer
I ll be in the back room, tell me when it s over
Don t know if I can play this part much longer
I don t know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I ll be in the back room, tell me when it s over
People always say, "Man, at least you re on the radio"

[Outro]
At least you re on the radio, oh


Black Madonna

[Verse 1]
Soft glow on the city
She said, "There s no one here who can touch you now"
Caught the last flight out of LAX
With your one-way ticket, New York-bound

[Pre-Chorus]
Climb so high, don t make a sound
Don t you forget what goes up must come down
Climb so high, tell me how it feels

[Chorus]
Call me when you re ready to be real
Black Madonna, hallelujah
Makes no difference here, so let s be real
Black Madonna, my black flower
Nowhere left to run, nowhere left to hide
You re not havin fun, I think that you should ride
Call me when you re ready to be real
Black Madonna, my hallelujah

[Verse 2]
On the phone you sound shifty
You say that you re at home, alone right now
But in the background there s a muffled laugh
As you spin that wool and pull it down

[Pre-Chorus]
Climb so high, don t hear a sound
Don t you forget what goes around, comes around
Climb so high, tell me how to feel

[Chorus]
Call me when you re ready to be real
Black Madonna, hallelujah
Makes no difference here, so let s be real
Black Madonna, my black flower
Nowhere left to run, nowhere left to hide
Says it should be gone, at least it was this time
Call me when you re ready to be real
Black Madonna, my hallelujah

[Chorus]
Call me when you re ready to be real
Black Madonna, hallelujah
Makes no difference here, so let s be real
Black Madonna, my black flower
Nowhere left to run, nowhere left to hide
You re not havin fun, I think that you should ride
Call me when you re ready to be real
Black Madonna, my hallelujah


Night Running

[Verse 1: Beck]
We re on a night run
Boy you better hold your tongue
Talking like you re coming from kingdom come
Rhythm and reeling, the feeling I m riding
The sound through the ceiling
Never got no money
But I m running from the gun
My engines flooded
Cold blooded no money
Drunk on something, uh
Killing the moonlight with daylight
I got my X-ray eyes
And I m feeling so fine

[Chorus]
Night running, all night running (We running)
Star-studded, not far from it (We roll)
We re running, all night running (We running)
Cold blooded, all night running (We roll)
Night running, all night running (We running)
Star-studded, not far from it (We roll)
Night running, all night running (We running)
Cold blooded, we re all night running (We roll)

[Verse 2: Matt Shultz]
We re on the nightshade
Tell me what we re hiding from
Like someone could steal it
Are we waiting for some kind of feeling
Or saving it up for the morning?
Undercover
The cloak and dagger
Is there a creature in the attic?
Are we for real, yeah?
Or just pretending?
Will it burn out by the morning?

[Chorus]
Night running, all night running (We running)
Star-studded, not far from it (We roll)
We re running, all night running (We running)
Cold blooded, all night running (We roll)
Night running, all night running (We running)
Star-studded, not far from it (We roll)
Night running, all night running (We running)
Cold blooded, we re all night running (We roll)

[Verse 3: Beck and Matt Shultz]
We re on a night run
No telling who we re running from
In a world of secrets and demons and people hiding from the sun
Sending my message to everyone losing control
Better not stop til I get home
Sentimental flowers don t grow
Got to live through tidal waves
And parishes and biblical floods
I got the gris-gris love
And the streets in my blood
I m on the final run
Falling in and out of love, oh

[Chorus]
Night running, all night running (We running)
Star-studded, not far from it (We roll)
We re running, all night running (We running)
Cold blooded, all night running (We roll)
Night running, all night running (We running)
Star-studded, not far from it (We roll)
Night running, all night running (We running)
Cold blooded, we re all night running (We roll)


Skin and Bones

[Verse 1]
Close my eyes and drift into the silence
Barely see the ultraviolet
Slipped and fell into the deep end
Oh, the sidewalk shimmer just like diamonds
All the empty words were flying
Well, the heart was low, but I never was alone
I never was alone

[Chorus]
I ve been running for so long
All that s left is skin and bones
Close my eyes, fight to carry on
Sometimes it makes no sense at all
If I stumble, will I fall?
If I fall, I ll tuck and roll
Close my eyes and let the love-light guide me home
Let the love-light guide me home

[Verse 2]
One step fades and falls into another
I m not getting any further
Left here feeling like an alien
All the shiny sidewalks, they were lying
Lost myself while I was hiding
And the heart was low, but I never was alone
I never was alone

[Chorus]
I ve been running for so long
All that s left is skin and bones
Close my eyes, fight to carry on
Sometimes it makes no sense at all
If I stumble, will I fall?
If I fall, I ll tuck and roll
Close my eyes and let the love-light guide me home
Let the love-light guide me home

[Bridge]
Heart s so empty almost all the time
Blind devising ways to lead the blind
And it seems as if there s no end in sight
I don t wanna be there when it all goes down
But if I gotta be there, don t let me hit the ground
Can I hit the ground?

[Chorus]
I ve been running for so long
All that s left is skin and bones
Close my eyes, fight to carry on
Sometimes it makes no sense at all
If I stumble, will I fall?
If I fall, I ll tuck and roll
Close my eyes and let the love-light guide me home
Let the love-light guide me home
Let the love-light guide me home


Ready to Let Go

[Verse 1]
Sun went down, sun went down over Pompeii
On both sides, a vow was broken
Oh my, my, I m the one
Trying to hide this damage done
One day, all our secrets will be spoken

[Pre-Chorus]
As we slow danced, I became your statue, frozen
Times I wonder are we just a puff of smoke? Yeah
Underneath this bed of ashes, still withholding everything
Like we were never close

[Chorus]
Don’t you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
I ma strike these matches, never had control
I m ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
I’ma spread these ashes, never had control
I m ready, I m ready, I m ready to let go

[Verse 2]
Sun went down, sun went down over Pompeii
On holy ground, our vows were broken
We met up, we broke bread
I was blue, your dress was red
Ain t it strange?
We both knew this day was coming

[Pre-Chorus]
As we slow danced, I became your statue, frozen
Times I wonder are we just a puff of smoke? Yeah
Underneath this bed of ashes, still withholding everything
Like we were never close

[Chorus]
Don t you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
I ma strike these matches, never had control
I m ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
I’ma spread these ashes, never had control
I’m ready, I m ready, I’m ready to let go

[Chorus]
Don t you worry, baby, no sense trying to change it
I ma strike these matches, never had control
I m ready to let go, no, was I fooling myself?
I’ma spread these ashes, never had control
I m ready, I m ready, I m ready to let go


House of Glass

[Verse 1]
Climb into my corner, my self-inflicted coma
Stand up, lay down, repeat in the same order
Fall straight through the floor and let the time just run me over
Another mirrored image corrupted and distorted
I m underwhelmed, uninterested, I wonder why I m over it
Walk it off, the kettle s black
The dotted line, the house is glass

[Pre-Chorus]
(The house is glass) The house is glass
(The house is glass) The house is glass

[Chorus]
It s an illusion, this admiration
Of mutilation, my isolation
It s an illusion, this admiration
Of mutilation, my isolation, my isolation
My isolation, it s an illusion

[Verse 2]
Slide on down the staircase, that picture-perfect moment
Receiver projected, act like if you own it
Smile for the camera, repeat and do it over
Smile for the camera, repeat and do it over
Joke s on you, the needle prick
Cut me down, I need a break
Walk it off, the kettle s black
The dotted line, this house is glass

[Pre-Chorus]
(The house is glass) The house is glass
(The house is glass) The house is glass

[Chorus]
It s an illusion, this admiration
Of mutilation, my isolation
It s an illusion, this admiration
Of mutilation, my isolation, my isolation
My isolation, it s an illusion

[Bridge]
Brick by brick
Make it last
Hit that line
The house is glass

[Instrumental break]

[Chorus]
It s an illusion, my isolation
My isolation, my isolation
It s an illusion, it s an illusion
My isolation, my isolation, my isolation


Love’s the Only Way

[Verse 1]
Looking out my window at the city below
From my fancy hotel suite
Tell me where the wind blows, tell me how a heart knows
Where a soul can find some sleep

[Pre-Chorus]
I can see the sunshine, breaking through the skyline
I can feel the warmth it brings
I can t help but stop and think

[Chorus]
There’s gotta be a place
Love s the only way
There s gotta be a place
Love’s the only way
Love s the only way, oh

[Verse 2]
Never made the wind blow, never made a heart grow
Never made a dove take flight
Never made the sun rise, still can t get my heart right
Only ever made mistakes

[Pre-Chorus]
So I can see the sunshine, breaking through the skyline
I can feel the warmth it brings
I can t help but stop and think

[Chorus]
There s gotta be a place
Love s the only way
There s gotta be a place
Love s the only way
Love’s the only way, oh

[Bridge]
Look out for yourself, it’s all the rage
You make up the rules or so they claim
One day you ll find life’s not a game
It s not the wave that moves the sea
But the sea that moves the wave

[Chorus]
There s gotta be a place
Love s the only way
There’s gotta be a place
Love s the only way
Love s the only name
Love s the only way
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh


The War Is Over

[Verse 1]
When I was a young man, I never needed anyone
Bruised and broken, shattered, always on the run
Safe behind a half-smile, laying in the shadows
I became a rich man, I held the world up with my hands
Inside I was a poor man, still screaming, "I don t understand"
"Why am I always running?" "Why am I always hiding?"
"What s the point in living when living feels like dying?"

[Chorus]
You can build your walls, love will tear it down
You can hide your heart inside a man-made house
You can build your walls, build em to the sky
One day you will find love was on both sides
The war is over

[Verse 2]
I came upon a wise man, he said, "Sit beside me son"
"When I was a young man, I was like you, the Prodigal Son"
Safe behind a half-smile, hidin in the shadows
Tell em that it s all right, tell em cause you said so

[Chorus]
You can build your walls, love will tear it down
You can hide your heart inside a man-made house
You can build your walls, build em to the sky
One day you will find love was on both sides

[Post-Chorus]
The war is over, love s already won
The war is over, the war is over
The war is over, love s already won
The war is over, the war is over

[Bridge]
Time stands still so long
I feel so low
I know what follows, what follows

[Chorus]
You can build your walls, but love will tear it down
You can hide your heart inside a man-made house
You can build your walls, build em to the sky
One day you will find love was on both sides

[Post-Chorus]
The war is over, love s already won
The war is over, the war is over
The war is over, love s already won
The war is over, the war is over


Dance Dance

[Verse 1]
Down on the corner, polyphonic visions
All the eyes were diamonds, technicolor wishes
Five-star paranoia, Hi-Fi superstition
Time to drop the needle, show em what they re missin
Chase it, we ll all fake it til we forget
Turn the lights down and keep chasin
Are we vibin or just lyin ? Yeah, we re vibin

[Pre-Chorus]
Dance, dance, dance

Ah-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, ah-oh

[Verse 2]
Down on the corner out on the city
All the girls got money, all the boys look pretty
The velvet tongues are talkin , all the lips are kissin
Time to drop the needle, show em what they re missin
Chase it, we ll all fake it til we forget
Turn the lights down and keep chasin
Are we vibin or just lyin ? Yeah, we re vibin

[Chorus]
Ah-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, ah-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Ah-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, ah-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

What I’m Becoming

[Verse 1]
Slowly drift across the floor, can t escape from my mind
Yet I feel like moving on, but I’m stuck taking my time
A window, a sparrow, a spare room, a shadow
Tied to the place where I told you

[Chorus]
I m so sorry, honey, for what I m becoming
Everything you wanted seems so far from me
Never meant to hurt you, no, never meant to make you cry
I’m so sorry, honey, for what I m becoming

[Verse 2]
Caught me walkin through the walls, still there s nothing I find
Took the picture from the frame, am I wasting my time?
A stranger, the basement, a table, the pavement
Tied to the place where I left you

[Chorus]
I m so sorry, honey, for what I m becoming
Everything you wanted seems so far from me
Never meant to hurt you, no, never meant to make you cry
I m so sorry, honey, for what I m becoming

[Bridge]
Never meant to hurt you, no
Never meant to make you cry
Never meant to hurt you, no
Never meant to hurt you

[Chorus]
I’m so sorry, honey, for what I’m becoming
Everything you wanted seems so far from me
Never meant to hurt you, no, never meant to make you cry
I m so sorry, honey, for what I’m becoming


Tokyo Smoke

[Verse 1]
Hey man
Hand me down with the crooked back
What s your father s name? Boy, you don t know where you re at
Pick yourself up, you don t look so good
Maybe you should lay down
Taught me how to fall
But you never told me I was supposed to stay down

[Chorus]
Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Keep it tight
Stay between the lines
Make your mark
Take your own advice
Don t be surprised when you trip and stumble
I played the fool again
My old unfaithful friend
Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Don t be surprised if you can t stay between the lines

[Verse 2]
Quicksand color blind in the hourglass
All spun out cause you can t stop looking back
Better stay still, don t you make a move
What d you hope to find here?
Taught me how to fall
But you never told me I was meant to die here

[Chorus]
Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Keep it tight
Stay between the lines
Make your mark
Take your own advice
Don t be surprised when you trip and stumble
I played the fool again
My old unfaithful friend
Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Don t be surprised if you can t stay between the lines

[Outro]
Endless shot rounds
No smoking guns
Fizzled and faded
Now back on the run
My sticks and stones
Tokyo smoke
I played the fool til I started to choke
My public smile
My double face
Half in the light
Half in the shade
Need some fresh air
No place tonight
Guess I ll stay in and continue to fight
Lost, trace of trail
Spiderweb spun
Pale white and blue
Now I m coming undone
Play sticks and stones
Three shades of black
Two steps away
And I can t get back


Goodbye

[Verse 1]
All my life, I read between the lines
Held on too tight, you know I tried
But in the end, it left me paralyzed
It s alright, goodbye, goodbye
Seems like yesterday I was a child
Just a ripple in the folds of time
I wish you well, I want to see you smile
It s alright, goodbye
Goodbye

[Chorus]
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I won t cry, I won t cry, I won t cry
Lord knows how hard we tried
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

[Verse 2]
So many things I want to say to you
So many sleepless nights I prayed for you
My heart s an ashtray and I lost my mind
You bring the smokes, I ve got the time
I want to scream, I want to laugh, I want to close my eyes
I want to hide somewhere that s hard to find
Stop wasting time trying to shape your life
It s alright, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

[Chorus]
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I won t cry, I won t cry, I won t cry
Lord knows how hard we tried
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

[Bridge]
My pretty bird, my favorite lullaby
How d I become the thorn in your side?
All your laughter turned into a cry
It s alright, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

[Chorus]
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I won t cry, I won t cry, I won t cry
Lord knows how hard we tried
It s alright, it s alright, it s alright
It s alright, it s alright, it s alright
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
