Reverence, Eksplorasi Musik Metal Parkway Drive

Album ke 6 Parkway Drive menjadi sebuah pengalaman unik yang mereka bagikan dalam karya musik yang disajikan. Berawal dari band yang mengusung musik metalcore, kini seiring dengan perkembangan pola pikir, “petualangan” mereka tur ke berbagai negara telah membuka jendela baru untuk eksporasi musik yang dihasilkan untuk dikenal melalui suara. Takala orang-orang mendengarkan distorsi, nyanyian vokal dan ketukan drum yang diolah, maka bukan lagi disebut “ada band metalcore sedang bermain” akan tetapi “itu adalah musiknya Parkway Drive” yang sedang bergemuruh. lirik parkway drive

Hal inilah yang ingin dicapai oleh Quintet asal Australia yang terdiri dari Ben “Gaz” Gordon pada drum, Luke “Pig” Kilpatrick dan Jeff Ling pada gitar, Winston McCall pada vokal dan Jia “Pie” O’Connor pada bass. Terbentuk sejak tahun 2003 tentu saja banyak yang telah terjadi baik secara musikal maupun personal pada setiap diri personilnya.

Lirik Wishing Well - Parkway Drive

|Intro|
I spoke a vow today and asked if God would come and play
I’ve dug a shallow hole for him to sleep
But I swear he just won’t answer me
I call on out is he afraid, I’ll bury him down with the ones he keeps
And if the devil is listening, I’ll come for him as well
If I suspect he had a hand to play
And if I see his face in town, there’s room for two down underground
Nothing’s gonna stop me till I’m done
Until I’m done!
Until I’m done!
Until I’m done!
Until I’m done!
‘Cause tonight I’m killing gods!
Killing gods!

|Verse 1|
It’s guilt and frustration, it’s everything between
The silence and the absence hitting home
Peripheral glances and the chasing of a sound
I never knew I’d miss until it’s gone
So ask me how I’m coping, and I’ll smile and tell you: “I’m just fine”
While down inside I’m drowning in the fucking rain
Because when everything is empty and your heart is set to cave
Sometimes all you wish for is a place, is a place to place the blame

|Chorus|
Burn your heaven, flood your hell
Drown you in your wishing wells
Burn your heaven, flood your hell
Damn you all ’cause tonight I’m killing gods

|Verse 2|
The incendiary shock wave scorched earth policy
The devastation that only loss will leave
The chants and incantations of daily rituals
A subtle lapse in brutal honesty
So ask me how I’m coping, and I’ll smile and tell you: “I’m just fine”
While down inside I’m screaming till I fucking bleed
Because when everyone’s expendable and your heart can’t take the wait
The last thing that you wish for is the face, is the face to face the pain

|Chorus|
Burn your heaven, flood your hell
Drown you in your wishing wells
Burn your heaven, flood your hell
Damn you all ’cause tonight I’m killing gods

|Outro|
I spoke a vow today and asked if God would come and play
‘Cause I just wanna cut that fucker down
Face me, face me, face me, face me
Face me, face me, none survive
Face me, face me, none survive, go
None survive
The Devil and God have died inside me

Lirik Prey - Parkway Drive

|Verse 1|
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
Starved like a vampire chasing a vein
Cruel disposition, sickness I crave
Attention, attention, welcome to the stage
Your new sacrifice, come sharpen your teeth

|Chorus|
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey, prey, we’re prey for the sorrow
Prey, prey, prey for the sorrow

|Verse 2|
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
I got an axe to grind, a crooked mind
You better watch your back
Sick validation, gut full of pills
Self-medication, it’s making me ill
Attention, attention, it’s all eyes on me
I’ll burn at the stake while you ache for the kill

|Chorus|
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey, prey, we’re prey for the sorrow
Prey, prey, prey for the sorrow

|Bridge|
Our new gods are empty like the holes in our heads
We dance upon the alter of envy and hubris
A scourge of narcissism reaps depression in black waves
If this is your salvation, you better pray
You better pray
You better pray
One, two, three, go

|Chorus|
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow
Prey, we are all prey for the sorrow, our sorrow
Prey, prey, we’re prey for the sorrow
Prey, prey, prey for the sorrow

Lirik Absolute Power - Parkway Drive

|Verse 1|
Your heart, your home, your voice, it’s got a price tag
Sign in blood, bury your rights in a body bag
They’re feeding fear through the fault lines
You heard it here first, they got your freedoms on the front line
Primetime, the noose at our throats
Our liberties hands run with blood of the scapegoats
So tell me how can we demonize
When we can’t see life through another’s eyes

|Pre-Chorus|
Pay ’em off and play ’em off
Fear rolls like a reaper through the streets of the lost
Pay ’em off and play ’em off
But in the eyes of the storm

|Chorus|
The truth drops like a bomb
The truth drops like a bomb
The battle is on

|Verse 2|
Hands in chains for a fist full of dollars
Who do we blame for the holes in our knowledge?
The past you know has been written by the victor
So I ask you now, who is it writing your future?
The butcher, the liar, the thief or the killer?
Your freedom died quiet in the halls of power
Starved for peace, we’ll eat war until it kills us
Six feet deep with a belly full of bullets

|Pre-Chorus|
Pay ’em off and play ’em off
Fear rolls like a reaper through the streets of the lost
Pay ’em off and play ’em off
But in the eyes of the storm

|Chorus|
The truth drops like a bomb
The truth drops like a bomb
The battle is on

|Bridge|
The hate runs deep, but our hopes cut deeper
Now we walk through the valley in the shadow of the reaper
Money talks, and it’s speaking in tongues
They put a price on our soul like they had already won
Now open wide, I see their jaws locked tight
Silent in the moment like prey in the floodlights
The signal is static, baptised in fire
Now we see how they talk with a mouth full of barbed wire

|Breakdown|
Absolute power, absolute power, absolute power
Absolute power corrupts absolutely
Absolute power, absolute power, absolute power
Absolute power corrupts

|Chorus|
The truth drops like a bomb
The truth drops like a bomb
The battle is on
The truth drops like a…

|Outro|
Absolute power corrupts absolutely

Lirik Cemetery Bloom - Parkway Drive

|Verse 1|
You sweep across the heavens, an extinction grade event
And carve your name upon the gates where angels fear to tread
All hail my
You shine like blood and diamonds, you sing like breaking glass
You drag them out into the street and turn their names to ash
All hail my

|Verse 2|
You hum like quiet lightning in the eye of a typhoon
A bird of illest omen crowing all impending doom
All hail my
The whisper of unnerving truth when saner minds depart
You rise like Christ the Saviour, you burn as Joan of Arc
All hail my
You bring the axe upon them with devastating grace
And on their heads, forever lay a curse upon their fate
All hail my
My spirit on unhinging force, my avalanche untamed
Bearing down relentlessly on all who dare remain
All hail my

|Outro|
All hail my
My unnatural disaster
All hail my
My kaleidoscopic gloom
All hail my
My karmic equalizer
All hail my
My cemetery bloom

Lirik The Void - Parkway Drive

|Verse 1|
Nothing can save us, nothing between
Infinite madness and the spiral of humanity
Nothing controls us, nothing breeds
The void awakens in the quickening of atrophy

|Pre-Chorus|
Answer no master, never the slave
Carry your dreams down into the grave
Every heart, like every soul, equal to break

|Chorus|
It’s alive, can you feel it taking hold again?
In your mind, all your demons are rattling chains
Welcome to a world of pain

|Verse 2|
Nothing kills us, nothing seethes
Extinction riding on the pale horse of destiny
Nothing hates us, nothing can see
Through our eyes, it dives into our minds and sows its disease

|Pre-Chorus|
Answer no master, never the slave
Carry your dreams down into the grave
Every heart, like every soul, equal to break

|Chorus|
It’s alive, can you feel it taking hold again?
In your mind, all your demons are rattling chains
Welcome to a world of pain

|Chorus|
It’s alive, can you feel it taking hold again?
In your mind, all your demons are rattling chains
It’s alive, can you feel it?
In your mind, all your demons are rattling chains
Welcome to a world
Welcome to a world of pain

Lirik I Hope You Rot - Parkway Drive

|Intro|
From crooked faith, the darkness flows
From hallowed halls, through broken homes
To prey upon the weakest lamb
The cruellest heart is truly man

|Verse 1|
And when the judgment came, they told us: “Turn away”
As their laughter whipped the halls like cracking bones
Small words and hollow gestures, the rats are closing ranks
They paint themselves as angels, oh, so wrong

|Pre-Chorus|
Libera nos, libera nos
Deliver us from the blackest of mass
Libera nos, libera nos
Deliver us justice for the lost

|Chorus|
Straight down, I see their wings are burning
But it’s a shallow fall
Straight down, I see their wings are burning
There are no halos to be found
There are no halos to be found
So save your breath

|Verse 2|
Nothing here is sacred, nothing is divine
If heaven’s gates are open, then I think I’ll wait in line
Nothing here is holy when every faith is blind
So save your breath, I don’t need more excuses

|Pre-Chorus|
Libera nos, libera nos
Deliver us from the blackest of mass
Libera nos, libera nos
Deliver us justice for the lost
But it’s a shallow fall, it’s a shallow fall

|Chorus|
Straight down, I see their wings are burning
But it’s a shallow fall
Straight down, I see their wings are burning
There are no halos to be found

|Bridge|
I’ll never see through the eyes of your lord
But I have seen through the eyes of a child
I’ll never see through the eyes of your lord
But I have seen through the eyes of a child
I hope you rot

|Chorus|
Straight down, I see their wings are burning
But it’s a shallow fall
Straight down, I see their wings are burning
There are no halos to be found

|Outro|
From crooked faith, the darkness flows
From hallowed halls, through broken homes
To prey upon the weakest lamb
The cruellest heart is truly man

Lirik Shadow Boxing - Parkway Drive

|Verse 1|
Do you see me? Do you see what I’ve become?
I’m not the same beast, I leave a scar on all I touch
You think you know me now, is it better than I know myself?
I know it hurts like hell, admitting just how you’ve misjudged
All my life I’ve been told the same old
Don’t step out, don’t test the mould
We know your kind, yeah, we know you
So much better than you know yourself
See, the ones that won’t engage me
Are the same trying to cage me
But I can’t sit still and I won’t be tamed
When the lights go out, better know your enemy

|Chorus|
‘Cause I’ve spent a lifetime shadowboxing with death
And we’ll dance with the devil till there’s no songs left

|Verse 2|
So do you see me? Do you see what I’ve become?
I’m not the same beast, no, I leave a scar on all I touch
You think you know me now, is it better than I know myself?
I know it hurts like hell, admitting just how you’ve misjudged
You don’t know me, you cannot own me
The path I’m on don’t fit the old me
I bear my soul as I keel evolving
And I chase this taste for blood
See, I learned real young, don’t seek no gold
Trust no fool and you won’t get sold
I never feared the dark, no, I just became it
When the lights go dead, you better pray you’re safe, kid

|Chorus|
‘Cause I’ve spent a lifetime shadowboxing with death
And we’ll dance with the devil till there’s no songs left
I try to keep my cool and not let this hate win
I find this mask I wear can’t keep the darkness in

|Interlude|
The world you know was born to fade
We’ll dance upon its grave

|Bridge|
You don’t know me, you cannot hold me
You should’ve guessed that you can’t control me
I raise my soul like a private army
And I steel myself for war
‘Cause I leaned real young when you walk through hell
The devil can’t buy what you won’t sell
So I took my fear, reshaped and aimed
‘Cause when the night caves in, no one will save you

|Chorus|
So we’ll dance with the devil till there’s no songs left
I try to keep my cool and not let this hate win
I find this mask I wear can’t keep the darkness in

Lirik In Blood - Parkway Drive

|Verse 1|
And through it all, we wore the pain
We held our own through the darkest of our nights
It’s written in my blood, it’s carved into my soul
Through the darkest of our nights
‘Cause if you couldn’t stop us then
What hope do you have now
When you dragged us through the fire
Did you really think that we would burn?

|Chorus|
We’re no saviours, we’re no saints
We’re no martyrs and we don’t need saving
I’ve come too far to turn back
I’ve seen too much to play dead
If this is all you got, then take a deep breath in
As I drown you out

|Verse 2|
I’m on the edge, I’m leaning out
But I can’t see the sorrow for the pain, yeah
It’s written in my blood, it’s carved into my soul
The sorrow and the pain
So, you think you know the story?
Did you read it in the scars?
‘Cause when you threw us to the lions
Did you really think that we would run?

|Chorus|
We’re no saviours, we’re no saints
We’re no martyrs and we don’t need saving
I’ve come too far to turn back
I’ve seen too much to play dead
If this is all you got, then take a deep breath in

|Bridge|
Don’t mistake composure for weakness
Don’t mistake my silence for respect
Don’t mistake composure for weakness
Don’t mistake my silence for respect
I’ll burn your world to the ground then spit on the ashes

|Breakdown|
Scorched fucking earth
Scorched fucking earth
As I drown you out

|Outro|
I’ve come too far to turn back
I’ve seen too much to play dead
If this is all you got, then take a deep breath in

Lirik Chronos - Parkway Drive

|Intro|
You answer to me

|Verse 1|
I am the thunder and the rain, the confusion and the pain
And when I leave, I will wash your wounds clean and leave them golden
I got the whole world swinging from the end of my chain and I’m calling
I got your life in my hands and every debt will be paid and I’m calling

|Pre-Chorus|
Between the spark and the ember
You are smoke threading the wind

|Chorus|
In time, all will return to me
In time, all find an end
You answer to me

|Verse 2|
I am the fight and the fury, gravity in all its glory
And when I come around, I bring the hammer of god down upon you
I got the whole world swinging from the end of my chain and I’m calling
I got your life in my hands and every debt will be paid and I’m calling, stop

|Pre-Chorus|
Between the spark and the ember
You are smoke threading the wind

|Chorus|
In time, all will return to me
In time, all find an end
In time, all will return to me
In time, you’ll find no other way
You answer to me

|Bridge|
I am the end and the beginning
I am the end and the beginning
I am forever
I am eternal and nothing stands against me
You answer to me
You answer to me
You answer to me

Lirik The Colour of Leaving - Parkway Drive

|Verse 1|
You never know just what you’ve got
Till it’s slipping through your fingers
Never know just what you’ve got
Till it’s gone with the wind
And you never miss your shadow
Till there’s no one left beside you
You never miss your shadow
Till you’re alone, alone in the dark

|Verse 2|
You never know just what will break you
Till you’re picking up the pieces
Never know just what will break you
Till your world, it falls apart
Never know how small your voice is
Till you’re screaming at the silence
Never know how small your voice is
Till you’re arguing, arguing with God

|Chorus|
But I saw Death’s face today
As he led my friend away
I saw Death’s face today
As he cast his shadow over me
I saw Death’s face today
As he led my friend away
So I’ll ask who I gotta pay
To bring him back
Bring him back to me
Bring him back to me

|Outro|
You never know the words you should’ve said
Until they’re all you’re left with
Until the dirt is falling and the guilt, it burns your bones
And we ask the biggest question
Why the fuck did this all happen?
Who on Earth deserves this and what the hell do we do now?
So we live like we have lost
And we love like we are broken
And as the colour leaves the sky, we’re left in reverence of the frailty of it all
