Lewati Duka ala Mike Shinoda – Post Traumatic EP

Sehari sebelumnya, Mike Shinoda, salah satu pentolan Linkin Park telah mengumumkan akan merilis 3 lagu baru. Namun ini bukanlah lagu Linkin Park dan bukan juga Forth Minor. Tapi murni DIY Mike mulai dari menulis, merekam, mixing, membuat video sampai “promosi”. Tidak ada sesi interview dengan media manapun, fans, penikmat dan jurnalis dapat langsung bertanya kepadanya melalui twitter ke akun resmi @mikeshinoda. Mike Shinoda Post Traumatic

Hal ini dilakukan Mike sembari melewati masa duka yang Ia rasakan, musik adalah salah satu obat dan jalan keluar Mike dalam menghadapi sesuatu dengan memainkan musik itu sendiri selain mendengarkannya. Karenanya terciptalah lagu Looking For An Answer yang pertama kali kita dengar saat konser tribut Chester Bennington pada bulan Oktober lalu.

Namun lagu tersebut ternyata tidak disertakan oleh Mike dalam rilisan kali ini. Mike mengatakan masih ada beberapa hal yang masih ingin dilakukan untuk lagu Looking For Answer. Jadi apa sajakah lagu-lagu yang dikemas oleh Mike dalam EP berjudul “Post Traumatic”?

Silakan didengarkan di bawah dalam bentuk video hasil produksi rumahan, konversi masa berduka yang menjadi lantunan nada dan karya dari Mike Shinoda

Lirik Mike Shinoda - Place To Start

I don’t have a leg to stand on
Spinning like a whirlwind nothing to land on
Came so far never thought it’d be done now
Stuck in a holding pattern waiting to come down
Did somebody else define me
Can I put the past behind me
Do I even have a decision
Feeling like I’m living in a story already written
Am I part of a vision / made by somebody else
Pointing fingers at villains but I’m the villain myself
Or am I out of conviction with no wind in the sail
Too focused on the end and simply ready to fail
Cause I’m tired of the fear that I can’t control this
I’m tired of feeling like every next step’s hopeless
I’m tired of being scared what I build might break apart
I don’t want to know the end, all I want is a place to start

Lirik Mike Shinoda - Over and Over Again

Sometimes / sometimes you don’t say goodbye once
You say goodbye over and over and over again
Over and over and over again
Sometimes / sometimes you don’t say goodbye once
You say goodbye over and over and over again
Over and over and over again

It was a month since he passed / maybe less
And no one knew what to do / we were such a mess
We were texting / we were calling / we were checking in
We said we ought to play a show in honor of our friend
Well now that show’s finally here / it’s tonight
Supposed to go / to the bowl / get on stage / dim the lights
With our friends / and our family / in his name / celebrate
There’s no way that I’ll be ready to get back up on that stage
Can’t remember if I’ve cancelled any show
But I think about what I’m supposed to do and I don’t know
Cause I think about not doing it the same way as before
And it makes me wanna puke my fucking guts out on the floor
We rehearsed it for a month / I’m not worried about the set
I get tackled by the grief at times that I would least expect
I know what I should be doing when I’m singing but instead
We’ll be playing through a song and I’d remember in my head

Sometimes / sometimes you don’t say goodbye once
You say goodbye over and over and over again
Over and over and over again
Sometimes / sometimes you don’t say goodbye once
You say goodbye over and over and over again
Over and over and over again

What (are) they saying, I’m not raw?
What the fuck you take me for?
All the sudden you hear what I’ve said a hundred ways before?
I been pushed, I been trapped
Drug myself through hell and back and
Fallen flat and had the balls to start it all again from scratch
How do you feel / how you doing / how’d the show go?
Am I insane to say the truth is that I don’t know
My body aches heads spinning this is all wrong
I almost lost it in middle of a couple songs
And everybody that I talk to is like, “wow
Must be really hard to figure out what to do now”
Well thank you genius / you think it’ll be a challenge
Only my life’s work hanging in the fucking balance
And all I wanted was to get a little bit of closure
And every step I took I looked and wasn’t any closer
Cause sometimes when you say goodbye yeah you say it
Over and over and over and over

Lirik Mike Shinoda - Watching As I Fall

Excuse me while I kiss the sky
Sing a song of sixpence / pocket full of lies
Thinking I’m OK but they’re saying otherwise
Tell me how I look but can’t look me in the eyes
Watching as I say this and then I do that
Telling them the old words but in a new rap
Then I change my mind up and make them lose track
Shit I’m inconsistent I thought you knew that

Maybe I should be more grateful
That I had to watch it all come undone
Holding so tight to the edge is painful
But I can’t ignore it I know

They’re watching as I fall / they’re staring as I go
I gave until my soul hurt / and never told them so
They’re watching as I fall / to somewhere down below
But maybe I’m just falling / to get somewhere they won’t

Excuse me while I sympathize
Singing with the fat lady tell me what’s the time
You know what it is not afraid to cross the line
Nothing is forever don’t be mad at the design
Ask me if I can / I say I don’t know
And honestly I buy that I can sound cold
Still upset from shit that’s 15 years old
I don’t know what it takes to make me let go

Maybe I should be more grateful
That I had to watch it all come undone
Holding so tight to the edge is painful
But can’t ignore it I know

They’re watching as I fall / they’re staring as I go
I gave until my soul hurt / and never told them so
They’re watching as I fall / to somewhere down below
But maybe I’m just falling / to get somewhere they won’t
