Fear of a blank planet

Sunlight coming through the haze
No gaps in the blinds
To let it inside
The bed is unmade, some music still plays

TV, yeah it's always on
A flicker of the screen
A movie actor screams
I'm basking in the shit flowing out of it

I'm stoned in the mall again
Terminally bored
Shuffling around the stores
And shoplifting is getting so last year's thing

Xbox is a god to me
My finger on the switch
My mother is a bitch
My father gave up ever trying to talk to me

Don't try engaging me
The vaguest of shrugs
The prescription drugs
You'll never find a person inside

My face is smothered on
Curiosity is good enough for me
I'm tuning out his eyes
Pills are on the rise

How can I be sure I'm here?
The pills that I've been taking confuse me
I need to know that someone sees that
There's nothing left, I simply am not here

I'm through with pornography
The acting is lame
The action is tame
Explicitly dull, or rather a lull

Your mouth should be boarded up
Talking all day with nothing to say
Your shallow proclamations
All misinformation

My friend says he wants to die
He's in a band, they sound like Pearl Jam
Their clothes are all black
The music is crap

In school I don't concentrate
And sex is kinda fun, but just another one
Of all the empty ways of using up the day

How can I be sure I'm here?
The pills that I've been taking confuse me
I need to know that someone sees that
There's nothing left, I simply am not here

Bipolar disorder
Can't be any boarder
Bipolar disorder
Can't be any boarder

Don't try to be liked
You don't mind
You feel no sun
You steal a gun
To kill time
You're somewhere
You're no where
You don't care
You catch the breeze
It still relieves
So now where?

Temor a un planeta en blanco (Traducción Jaume Aler)

La luz del sol, entrando a través de la bruma
Sin rendijas en las persianas
Para dejarlo entrar
La cama está por hacer, una música que aún suena

La TV, sí, siempre encendida
Un parpadeo en la pantalla
Un actor grita
Me revuelvo en la mierda que sale de allí

Vuelvo a estar colocado en el centro comercial
Mortalmente aburrido
Deambulando por las tiendas
Y robar en ellas está ya pasado de moda

La Xbox es un Dios para mí
Mi dedo en el botón
Mi madre es una bruja
Mi padre ya ha desistido de intentar hablar conmigo

No intentes implicarme en nada
Apenas un encogimiento de hombros
Las drogas con receta
Jamás encontrarás a una persona adentro

Mi rostro sofocado
La curiosidad es más que suficiente para mí
Estoy desafinando sus ojos
Las pastillas son lo que va ahora

Como puedo estar seguro de que estoy aquí?
Las pastillas que he estado tomando me confunden
Necesito saber que alguien comprueba que
No queda más, simplemente no estoy aquí

Estoy harto de la pornografía
Los actores son patéticos
La acción es insulsa
Explícitamente aburrida o incluso parada (NdT: juego de palabras
intraducible!)

Deberían coser tu boca
Hablando sin parar sin nada que decir
Tus proclamas superficiales
Son todo desinformación

Mis amigos dicen que él quiere morir
Toca en un grupo, suenan a Pearl Jam
Sus ropas todas negras
Su música es una mierda

En la escuela no me concentro
Y el sexo es divertido, pero sólo una más
De todas las maneras vacías de pasar el tiempo

Como puedo estar seguro de que estoy aquí?
Las pastillas que he estado tomando me confunden
Necesito saber que alguien comprueba que
No queda más, simplemente no estoy aquí

Trastorno bipolar
No puede haber nigún huesped
Trastorno bipolar
No puede haber nigún huesped

No intentes gustar a nadie
No te importa
No sientes el sol
Robas una pistola
Para pasar el rato
Estás en algún lugar
No estás en ningún lugar
No te importa
Respiras la brisa
Aún alivia
Así que ahora adonde?

My Ashes

All the things that I needed
I wasted my chances
I have found myself wanting

When a mother and father
Gave me their problems
I accepted them all

Nothing ever expected
I was rejected
But I came back for more

And my ashes drift beneath the silver sky
Where a boy rides on a bike and never smiles

And my ashes fall over all the things we've said
On a box of photographs under the bed

I will stay in my own world
Under the covers
I will feel safe inside

The kiss that will burn me
Cure me of dreaming
I was always returning

And my ashes find a way beyond the fog
And return to save the child that I forgot

And my ashes fade among the things unseen
And a dream plays in reverse on piano keys

And my ashes drop upon a park in Wales
Never-ending clouds of rain, and distant sails... distant sails

Mis cenizas (Traducción Jaume Aler)

Todas las cosas que necesito
He perdido mis oportunidades
No he dado la talla

Cuando un padre y una madre
Me pasaron sus problemas
Los acepté todos

Nunca esperé nada
Me rechazaron
Pero volví a probar

Y mis cenizas vagan bajo el cielo plateado
Donde un niño va en biciceta y nunca sonríe

Y mis cenizas caen sobre todas las cosas que he dicho
En una caja con fotografías bajo la cama

Me quedaré en mi mundo particular
Bajo las sábanas
Me sentiré seguro en ellas

El beso que me hará arder
Me salvará de la ensoñación
A la que siempre volvía

Y mis cenizas encuentran un camino entre la niebla
Y regresan para salvar al niño que olvidé

Y mis cenizas se disipan entre lo oculto
Y un sueño suena invertido en las teclas del piano

Y mis cenizas caen en un parque en Gales
Nubes de lluvia que no cesan, y velas lejanas... velas lejanas

Anesthetize

A good impression of myself
Not much to conceal
I'm saying nothing
But I'm saying nothing revealed

I simply am not here
No way I should appear happy
Stop whining please

Because of who we are
We react in mock surprise
The curse off, there must be more
So don't breathe here
Don't leave your bags

I simply am not here
No way I should appear happy
Stop whining please

The dust in my soul
Makes me feel awake in my legs
My head in the clouds
And I'm zoning out

I'm watching TV
But I find it hard to stay conscious
I'm totally bored
But I can't switch off

Only apathy from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Only eMpTV, cult philosophy

We're lost in the mall
Shuffling through the stores like zombies
What is the point
What can money buy

My hand's on a gun
And I find the range, God, tempt me
What did you say
Think I'm passing out

Only apathy from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Only eMpTV, cult philosophy

All the apathy from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you

Water so warm that day (water so warm that day)
I counted out the waves (I counted out the waves)
As they broke into

The water so warm that day
I was counting out the waves
And I followed their short life
As they broke on the shoreline
I could see you
But I couldn't hear you

You were holding your hat in the breeze
Turning away from me in this moment
You were stolen as black across the sun

Water so warm that day (water so warm that day)
I counted out the waves (I counted out the waves)
As they broke into shore (as they broke into shore)

Sentimental

I never want to be old
And I don't want dependants
It's no fun to be told
That you can't blame your parents anymore

I'm finding it hard
To hang from a star
I don't want to be...
Never want to be old

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way wish away each day

I don't really know
If I care what is normal
And I'm not really sure
If the pills I've been taking are helping

I've wasted my life
And I'm hurting inside
I don't really know
And I'm not really sure...

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way wish away each day

Way out of here

Out at the train tracks
I dream of escape
But a song comes onto my iPod
And I realize it's getting late

I can't take the staring
And the sympathy
And I don't like the questions,

it..."

Way out, way out of here
Fade out, wait up ahead

And I'm trying to forget you
And I know that I will
In a thousand years
Or maybe a week

Burn all your pictures
Cut out your face
The shutters are down
And the curtains are closed
And I've covered my tracks
Disposed of the car

And I'm trying to forget
Even your name
And the way that you look
When you're sleeping, dreaming of this

Way out, way out of here
Fade out, wait up ahead

Way out, way out of here
Fade out, fade up ahead

Sleep Together

This means out
This is your way out
Do or drown
Do or drown in torpor

Leave no trace
All my files erased
Burn my clothes
Burn my Prada trainers

Let's sleep together, right now
Relieve the pressure, somehow

Switch off the future, right now
Let's leave forever

This is fate
This is your escape
Leave here now
Leave here now, it's over

Let's sleep together, right now
Relieve the pressure, somehow
Switch off the future, right now
Let's leave forever
