Simple Creatures – Everything Opposites

Mark Hoppus akhirnya merasakan apa yang Tom Delonge dulu kala rasakan, dimana yang namanya haus berkarya terkadang tidak bisa dicurahkan pada satu proyek saja. Setelah merilis album ke semiblan bersama Blink 182 pada 21 September kemarin, serasa masih ada amunisi yang tak tertuang bersama Blink, Mark Hoppus dan Alex Gaskarth yang tergabung dalam duo Simple Creatures merilis EP kedua mereka berjudul Everything Opposites.

Mimin pribadi lebih menyukai mini album yang kedua ini ketimbang debut EP mereka sebelumnya. Ibarat buah mangga yang lagi musim nih ya, ini adalah karya-karya Simple Creatures yang rasanya lebih manis karena buahnya sudah lebih matang. Sehingga tanpa tambahan garam atau sambal rujak pun sudah enak langsung bisa dimakan begitu kulitnya dikupas.

Single terbaru untuk album ini berjudul ‘Thanks, I Hate It’ yang juga dirilis video klipnya sebagai penanda peluncuran mini album kedua Simple Creatures. Menyuguhkan musik yang asyik hasil perpaduan pop-punk-elektro kekinian yang berdistorsi namun tidak bising yang bisa saingan sama lagu-lagunya Noah buat diputer di mall-mall.

Berisi 6 lagu, hanya track nomor 4 yang berjudul The Wolf yang musiknya rada-rada eksperimental. Dan mimin jadi keinget Miyavi lho begitu ngedengerin sound dari instrumen nyak. Miyavi pake ‘V’ yak, bukan yang satu lagi.

Biar lebih jelas, dengerin langsung di bawah yo, lirik lagu terlampir.

Ya iya atuh, kan lirik.cc


Lirik Lagu Simple Creatures EP Everything Opposites

Special
Mark Hoppus:
Nothing sinister starts out sober
Sometimes the chemicals work me over
The things you learn at 4am
When do I become who I am?
Save your blast from the past
This is not a mirage
I’m a stolen car in a parking garage
On your hands and your knees
Do you feel in charge?
Crawling back to who you were

Alex Gaskarth:
I just wanna feel good
I wanna feel special
Dig down
Underneath the pressure
I wanna fake my pain away
I wanna fake my pain away
I just wanna feel good
I just wanna feel good
And fake my pain

Alex Gaskarth:
I just wanna feel good, good
I just wanna feel g-

Alex Gaskarth:
Where does the time go?
Here comes the heavy low
I got two houses and a hungry hungry ego
Hard to make the best of a good thing now
‘Cause this town’s too big, too big for the one of me
Sometimes you make friends with the enemy
Am I the one on the throne or a wannabe?
Are you crawling back to who you were?

Alex Gaskarth:
‘Cause I just wanna feel good
I wanna feel special
Dig down
Underneath the pressure
I wanna fake my pain away
I wanna fake my pain away
I just wanna feel good
I just wanna feel good
And fake my pain

Alex Gaskarth:
I just wanna feel good, good
I just wanna feel good, good

Alex Gaskarth & Mark Hoppus:
I just wanna wake up
Put a smile on my face
That isn’t made up
Float just like a feather
Or sink just like a stone thrown in a river

Alex Gaskarth:
I just wanna feel good
I wanna feel special
Dig down
Underneath the pressure
I wanna fake my pain away (Fake my pain away)
I wanna fake my pain away
I just wanna feel good

Alex Gaskarth:
I wanna feel special
When the hell is it gonna get better?
I just wanna feel good
And fake my pain
I just wanna feel good

One Little Lie
Mark Hoppus:
I live on the dark side, so pull the shades tight
Don’t shine that light in my eyes
I’m so jealous and inspired
It’s like I’m always wired to a time bomb

Mark Hoppus:
I lost my faith in drinking
I lost my voice again
Living in a shark’s teeth with you beside me
Waiting for the water to bleed

Alex Gaskarth:
If I tell myself one little lie
Then I think that I’ll be alright
I tell myself one little lie
My head gets heavy every day
Like it’s filled with rocks and memories
I tell myself one little lie and the pain don’t phase me

Mark Hoppus:
Falling off the earth’s face
Watching your eyes glaze
I taste the salt on your skin
Fighting in a foreign city
Tonight will only lead me to a time bomb

Mark Hoppus:
You lost your self in whiskey
You lost your keys again
Living in a shark’s teeth with you beside me
Waiting for the water to bleed

Alex Gaskarth:
If I tell myself one little lie
Then I think that I’ll be alright
I tell myself one little lie
My head gets heavy every day
Like it’s filled with rocks and memories
I tell myself one little lie and the pain don’t phase me

Alex Gaskarth & Mark Hoppus:
Everything (everything), opposite (opposite)
Back and forth (back and forth), born to quit (born to quit)
Everything (everything), opposite (opposite)
Back and forth (back and forth), born to quit (born to quit)
Everything (everything), opposite (opposite)
Back and forth (back and forth), born to quit (born to quit)
Everything (everything), opposite (opposite)
Back and forth (back and forth), born to quit (born to quit)

Alex Gaskarth:
If I tell myself one little lie
Then I think that I’ll be alright
I tell myself one little lie

Alex Gaskarth:
I trip and stumble some of the time
But I know that I’ll be alright
I tell myself one little lie and the pain don’t phase me

Need Me
Mark Hoppus:
I need a song to kill this headache
I need a beat to feed my soul
I need the sound of a thousand voices
Singing back to feel at home
I wake up every morning
With a pounding in my head
Like a kick drum echoed off the walls
Of the life that I once led

Mark Hoppus:
I got peace and I got pain
Either way it’s all the same
Take your time, I’ll take the blame
Promise not to run

Mark Hoppus:
I can’t stand that you see right through me
I can’t stand when you look away
Tell me that you need me
Will you love me ’til you leave me

Alex Gaskarth:
I’ll be on my best behavior
Yes, I’ll be home on time
What more could I say to you
To justify my crimes
I try to test your patience
To see if you run out
But there’s a spotlight calling me
That I can’t live without

Alex Gaskarth:
I got peace and I got pain
Either way it’s all the same
Take your time, I’ll take the blame
Promise not to run

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
I can’t stand that you see right through me
I can’t stand when you look away
Tell me that you need me
Will you love me ’til you leave me

Mark Hoppus, Alex Gaskarth:
Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you need me
I got space and I got time
Always got you on my mind
Take it all back, I’ll be fine
Promise not to run

Mark Hoppus:
I can’t stand that you see right through me
I can’t stand when you look away
Tell me that you need me
Will you love me ’til you leave me

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you need me

The Wolf
Alex Gaskarth:
I know I’m not supposed to stare into the sun but
I just like the way that it burns
I’ll fall asleep, keep having dreams that
I’m still dreaming about you (about you)

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
And you’ll keep telling me I’m bad for me and worse for the world
You’ll keep telling me I’m bad for me (I’m bad)
And you’ll keep telling me I’m bad for me and worse for the world
You’ll keep telling me I’m bad for me (I’m bad for me)

Alex Gaskarth:
Maybe I’m just the sheep you count in your head
I wanna feed the monster under your bed
My teeth are sharpest when I tear out the truth
Am I the boy who cried, or am I the wolf (yeah)

Mark Hoppus:
You got me wrapped around an angry middle finger
And you pull me apart from inside
I get caught up between the beings of your heart and sing nothing
And nothing’s ever good enough for…

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
You’ll keep telling me I’m bad for me and worse for the world
You’ll keep telling me I’m bad for me (I’m bad)
I’ll keep sipping on the poison that you slip in my drink
Can’t help feeling like it’s poetry (poetry)

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
Maybe I’m just the sheep you count in your head
I’m here to feed the monster under your bed
My teeth are sharpest when I tear out the truth
Am I the boy who cried, or am I the (wolf)

Alex Gaskarth:
I’ll fall asleep keep having dr-

NVM
Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
I dug through a graveyard of empty bottles and missing pieces
Searching for redemption in dirt and debris to find the reason
Everything is awful, but it’s only in my brain
The vodka must be broken ‘cause I don’t feel anything

Alex Gaskarth:
My mind is playing tricks again
And only you can fix this
You don’t answer when I call at night
Forgot how much I missed this

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus, Both:
I’ve been, I’ve been, crying, crying wolf so long
It’s hard to believe me anymore
I’ve been, I’ve been, dying, dying for ya
But you were never mine, so good night and never mind
You were never mine so good night and never mind
You were never mine so good night and never mind

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
Flipping through old pages of lyrics I wrote to find the answer
Locked myself away in hotel rooms while I’m on tour in Paris
You’re stuck in the moment while I’m stuck on yesterday
I’d give you forever, but you’d give it all away

Alex Gaskarth:
My mind is playing tricks again
And only you can fix this
You don’t answer when I call at night
Forgot how much I missed this

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus, Both:
I’ve been, I’ve been, crying, crying wolf so long
It’s hard to believe me anymore
I’ve been, I’ve been, dying, dying for ya
But you were never mine, so good night and never mind
You were never mine so good night and never mind
You were never mine so good night and never mind

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
I came home to a Dear John note
Saying you lost hope and I’m never gonna get you back
You said goodbye in the nick of time
So don’t ask why, but you’re never gonna get me back

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus, Both:
I’ve been, I’ve been, crying, crying wolf so long
It’s hard to believe me anymore
I’ve been, I’ve been, dying, dying for ya
But you were never mine, so good night and never mind
You were never mine so good night and never mind
You were never mine so good night and never mind

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
I came home to a Dear John note
Saying you lost hope and I’m never gonna get you back
You said goodbye in the nick of time
So don’t ask why, but you’re never gonna get me back

Thanks, I Hate It
Alex Gaskarth:
Throw another penny in the fountain
Leave my dead body on the side of a mountain
You bathe in the light of a trash fire
I see the stars in the eyes of a vampire

Alex Gaskarth:
I’m too sweet to be salty about it
And too sour to be happy without it
I’m just here for your entertainment
I’ll spit my teeth out on the pavement

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
Woah-oh-oh
Am I good enough for you?
Woah-oh-oh
Am I good enough for you?

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
I don’t owe you anything
But I’ll give you everything
Watch you pile it up and sing
“Thanks, I hate it.”
No, you’re never satisfied
Now you wanna run and hide
Can’t you look me in the eyes and say
“Thanks, I hate it.”

Mark Hoppus:
I know I meant nothing to ya
Crucify me, hallelujah
Make believe that we will never change
Stay the same but kinda different
Read my mind but say you didn’t
Hurry up so I don’t have to wait

Mark Hoppus, Alex Gaskarth:
Woah-oh-oh
Just shut up and take the stage
Woah-oh-oh
This outrage is all the rage

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
I don’t owe you anything
But I’ll give you everything
Watch you pile it up and sing
“Thanks, I hate it.”
No, you’re never satisfied
Now you wanna run and hide
Can’t you look me in the eyes and say
“Thanks, I hate it.”

Alex Gaskarth:
Throw another penny in the fountain
Leave my dead body on the side of a mountain
You bathe in the light of a trash fire
I see the stars in the eyes of a vampire

Alex Gaskarth, Mark Hoppus:
I don’t owe you anything
But I’ll give you everything
Watch you pile it up and sing
“Thanks, I hate it.”
No, you’re never satisfied
Now you wanna run and hide
Can’t you look me in the eyes and say
“Hahaha… thanks.”
