A Perfect Circle – Eat The Elephant

14 tahun lamanya bagi A Perfect Circle (APC) untuk menelurkan album penerus Emotive. Eat The Elephant menjadi tajuk album ke 4 APC setelah berdiri sejak 19 tahun yang lalu. lirik a perfect circle

Mendengarkan album Eat The Elephant kita akan mendengarkan sebuah dimensi baru dari musik Rock yang tidak akan kita temukan di band manapun termasuk dari album APC sebelumnya. Album yang tidak bisa dibilang easy listening namun juga bukan suatu konsep album yang sulit dicerna.

Dalam mengartikan setiap cerita pada lagu-ladu di Eat The Elephant, sudah pasti yang langsung menarik perhatian adalah single pertamanya The Doomed yang langsung disusul oleh So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish dengan nada Chorus yang tergolong catchy akan menjadi track yang diputar-putar ulang.

Suara sang vokalis Maynaard James Keenan memang sebuah pelekat sempurna pada karya-karya APC. Suara yang selalu sesuai dengan musik yang disajikan, dari lembut menjadi tegas dan sebaliknya bahkan melakukan rap, terdengar seperti mendengar 2 orang yang berbeda akan tetapi kenyataannya hanyalah seorang Keenan yang bernyanyi sesuai dengan mood lagunya sendiri.

Suasana yang cukup terdengar mellow pada track-track di album Eat The Elephant, jadi untuk yang berharap album ini akan garang lewat aja. Album ini untuk mereka yang ingin menyaksikan suguhan musik Rock dengan mulut ternganga dengan diakhiri tepuk tangan pada setiap “pertunjukannya”.

Dengarkan full album Eat The Elephant dari A Perfect di bawah, beserta liriknya yang sudah kita sediakan.

Lirik Eat The Elephant - A Perfect Circle

|Verse 1|
Looming, omnipresent
This task ahead
This task at hand
Ominous and daunting
Crippling undertaking, I’m frozen

Where to begin eludes me
Without you to remind me

|Chorus 1|
Just take the step
Just take the swing
Just take the bite
Just go all in

|Verse 2|
Where to begin eludes me
Ruling ever deeper
This massive endeavor
Ominous and daunting
Crippling undertaking

|Chorus 1|
Just take the step
Just take the swing
Just take the bite
Just go all in

|Chorus 2|
Take the step
Take the swing
Take the bite
Just take the bite

Take the step
Take the swing
Take the bite
Just go all in

|Outro|
Where to begin eludes me
Without you to remind me
Just begin

Lirik Disillusioned - A Perfect Circle

|Intro|
Dopamine
On dopamine

|Verse 1|
We have been overrun by our animal desire
Addicts of the immediate keep us obedient and unaware
Feeding this mutation, this Pavlovian despair

|Pre-Chorus|
We’ve become
Disillusioned
So we run
Towards anything glimmering

|Chorus|
Time to put the silicon obsession down
Take a look around, find a way in the silence
Lie supine away with your back to the ground
Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
You were never an island

Unique voice among the many in this choir
Tuning into each other, lift all higher

|Interlude|
Dopamine
On dopamine

|Verse 2|
Willingly been re-wired by clever agents within
Looping our reflections, our obsessions draw us in
Fix and fixation, no sentience beyond

|Pre-Chorus|
We’ve become disillusioned
So we dive like crows towards anything glittering

|Chorus|
Time to put the silicon obsession down
Take a look around, find a way in the silence
Lie supine away with your back to the ground
Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
You were never an island

Unique voice among the many in this choir
Tuning into each other, lift all higher

Lirik The Contrarian - A Perfect Circle

Hello, he lied
Like velvet this magician’s sleight of tongue and hand
Hello, he lied
Beware, belie his smile
As warm and calculated as heroin
Beware the Contrarian

[Verse 1] Within everyone
A scale, a voice
Everyone but him
Core is black as pitch
Soul is out of tune
Advocate of none
Beware, belie his smile
Will cost you everything
Cloak and masquerades
Contempt for everyone
Hello, hello, he lied

[Chorus] Hello, he lied
Like velvet this magician’s sleight of tongue and hand
Hello, he lied
Beware, belie his smile
As warm and calculated as heroin
Beware the Contrarian

Lirik The Doomed - A Perfect Circle

|Verse 1|
Behold a new Christ
Behold the same old horde
Gather at the altering
New beginning, new word

And the word was death
And the word was without light
The new beatitude:
“Good luck, you’re on your own”

|Verse 2|
Blessed are the fornicates
May we bend down to be their whores
Blessed are the rich
May we labor, deliver them more

Blessed are the envious
Bless the slothful, the wrathful, the vain
Blessed are the gluttonous
May they feast us to famine and war

|Chorus|
What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
All doomed
All doomed

|Verse 3|
Behold a new Christ
Behold the same old horde
Gather at the altering
New beginning, new word

And the word was death
And the word was without light
The new beatitude: “Good luck…”

|Chorus|
What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
What of the righteous? What of the charitable?
What of the truthful, the dutiful, the decent?

|Outro|
Doomed are the poor
Doomed are the peaceful
Doomed are the meek
Doomed are the merciful

For the word is now death
And the word is now without light
The new beatitude:
“Fuck the doomed, you’re on your own”

Lirik So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish - A Perfect Circle

Time is money and money’s time
We wasted every second dime
On diets, lawyers, shrinks and apps and flags and plastic surgery
Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom, Ali, and Leia have moved on
Signal the final curtain call in all its atomic pageantry

Bravissimo, hip hip hooray
For this fireworks display
Mind and body blown away
What a radiant crescendo!

Ticker tape parade
Our hair and skin like
Marilyn Monroe
In an afterwind

Time is money and money’s time
We wasted every second dime
On politicians, fancy water and guns and plastic surgery
Like old Prince and Brady’s mom
All the dolphins have moved on
Signaling the final curtain call in all its atomic pageantry

Bravissimo, hip hip hooray
What a glorious display
Melt our joyous hearts away
Under the mushroom cloud confetti

Hip hip hooray for this fireworks display
Mind and body blown away
What a radiant crescendo

Hip hip hooray
Hip hip hooray
Ticker tape parade
Our hair and skin like
Marilyn Monroe in an afterwind

Time is money and money’s time
We wasted every second dime
On diets, lawyers, shrinks and apps and flags and plastic surgery
Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom, Ali and Leia have moved on
Signal the final curtain call in all its atomic pageantry

Lirik TalkTalk - A Perfect Circle

|Verse 1|
You’re waiting (you’re waiting …)
On miracles (on miracles …)
We’re bleeding out (bleeding out …)

Thoughts (thoughts …)
And prayers (prayers …)
Adorable (crisis …)
Like cake in a crisis (in a crisis …)
We’re bleeding out (bleeding out …)

|Pre-Chorus|
While you deliberate
Bodies accumulate

|Chorus 1|
Sit and talk like Jesus
Try walkin’ like Jesus
Sit and talk like Jesus
Talk like Jesus
Talk talk talk talk
Get the fuck out of my way

|Bridge|
Don’t be the problem, be the solution
Don’t be the problem, be the solution
Don’t be the problem, be the solution
Problem, problem, problem, problem

Faith without works is
Talk without works is
Faith without works is
Talk without works is
Faith without works is
Dead, dead, dead, dead

|Chorus 2|
Sit and talk like Jesus
Try walkin’ like Jesus
Sit and talk like Jesus
Try walkin’ like Jesus
Try braving the rain
Try lifting the stone
Try extending a hand
Try walkin’ your talk or get the fuck out of my way

Lirik By and Down The River

Moving in and out of the shadow
It’s no easy mission, holding on to how I picture you

Showing only bits and pieces
‘Til the light betray you and your empty allocution

Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility
Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility

Searching your eyes for a hint or trace of it
Searching your eyes for humility
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace
I’m still searching, searching

Showing only bits and pieces
‘Til the tide betrays you and your empty elocution
Float the Piper by and down the river
Carcass crippled underneath the pounding waves of adoration

Pied Piper, float on down the river
Bloated carcass crippled me, the weight of adoration
Moving in and out of the shadows
It’s no easy mission, holding on to how I picture you

Lirik Delicious - A Perfect Circle

|Verse 1|
How inconvenient and unexpected and harrowing for you
As consequences tend to be
For the rest of us
So delicious to witness your dread
Poetic justice consummate

|Chorus 1|
Not unlike you to heedlessly hoist away your smug grenade
Arrogant and insolent
You don’t give a damn
Collateral be damned

Not unlike you to hoist away
Hoist away
Your smug grenade
Choice and bed be made
Good night
Sleep tight

|Verse 2|
So delicious for the rest of us
To witness your dread
Poetic justice consummate

|Pre-Chorus|
Not unlike you to heedlessly hoist by your own vain petard
Wrong side of history
You don’t give a damn
Collateral be damned

|Chorus 2|
Not unlike you to hoist away
Hoist away your smug grenade
Choice and bed be made
Good night
Sleep tight

Lirik Hourglass - A Perfect Circle

|Verse 1|
Red flag red, all the sentinels are damned
The Tokyo kitty, swallow, rose, and canary
Tick tick tick, do you recognize the sounds as the grains count down
Trickle down right in front of you?

|Verse 2|
A little tickle tickle tickle, all your neck hairs prickle
As they barbecue the sentinels then eat them right in front of you
Hourglass smashed, a billion little pieces
The count down, carry on: five, four, three, two

|Chorus|
Aristocrat breaks down to
Democrat breaks down to
Oligarch breaks down to
Republicrat breaks down to
Aristocrat breaks down to
Democrat breaks down to
Oligarch breaks down to
Republicrat breaks down to
No hope left in the hourglass

|Verse 1|
Red flag red, all the sentinels are damned
The Tokyo kitty, swallow, rose, and canary
Tick tick tick, do you recognize the sounds as the grains count down?
Trickle down right in front of you

|Verse 2|
Tickle tickle tickle, all your neck hairs prickle
As they barbecue the sentinels then eat them right in front of you
Hourglass smashed, a million little pieces
They count down, carry on: five, four, three, two

|Chorus|
Aristocrat breaks down to
Democrat breaks down to
Oligarch breaks down to
Republicrat breaks down to
Aristocrat breaks down to
Democrat breaks down to
Oligarch breaks down to
Republicrat breaks down to
Breaks down to

Aristocrat breaks down to
Democrat breaks down to
Oligarch breaks down to
Republicrat breaks down to
Aristocrat breaks down to
Democrat breaks down to
Oligarch breaks down to
Republicrat breaks down to
No hope left in the hourglass

|Outro|
A ten, nine, Ready!
A ten, nine, Ready!
A ten, nine, Ready!
Hate, seven, six
Five, four, three, two
A ten, nine, Ready!
A ten, nine, Ready!
A ten, nine, Ready!
Hate, seven, six
Five, four, three..

Lirik Feathers - A Perfect Circle

|Verse 1|
Damages define our border
All that matter forged in flame
Knowing little of your wounding
Share our mending all the same

|Verse 2|
Weight of words and wars we carried
I’m like you, just like you
Eyes of secrets, storm and story
Show and tell, we’ll make it through

|Verse 3|
Sadness like a pendulum
Pulls us ’round and to and from
Onus fate and undue odium
I’m our anchor, lead and stone

|Bridge|
By the telling, will they become?
Will they all be feathers?

|Chorus|
Eyes of secrets, storm and story
Show and tell, we’ll make it through
Onus fate and undue odium
I’m our anchor, lead and stone

|Outro|
By the telling may they become
May they all be feathers

Lirik Get The Lead Out - A Perfect Circle

We got places to be

Suck it up, buttercup

No time to coddle you

Not one to dawdle, got
No time to coddle you
No time to coddle you
