21 Guns

Green Day, 2009

Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?

Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul

Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

21 Guns de Green Day ? Pour moi c’est la preuve que même bien après l’an 2000, il existe toujours des grands groupes de rock où les musiciens ont moins de 60 ans … Stades remplis, foules délirantes, briquets allumés, etc. Tous les ingrédients sont là pour un bon moment quand Green Day se produit !

Une énergie incroyable, une composition classique pour un hymne rock, peut être trop simple et trop facile au goût de certains avec des paroles patriotiques et anti-guerre presque naïves … Comme ont dits certains critiques très négatifs « on dirait une mauvaise reprise d’une chanson que John Lennon n’avait pas osé publier » … Rien que comparer Green Day à John Lennon est une preuve de leur influence et succès …
