JINJER – On The Top

on
November 24, 2019

Da quanto è uscita qualche mese fa la live session di Pisces, tratta da King of Everything del 2016, non si fa altro che parlare degli ucraini Jinjer. In attività dal 2008, la band metalcore con influenze djent e progressive metal ha di recente rilasciato il quarto lavoro in studio dal titolo “Macro”, preceduto dall’EP “Micro” uscito ad inizio anno. “On The Top” è la traccia di apertura dell’album e il secondo singolo che ne ha anticipato l’uscita. Un biglietto da visita perfetto se non avete mai sentito una canzone dei Jinjer prima d’ora: aspettatevi un equilibrio bilanciato tra l’armonia e la potenza vocale di Tatiana Shmailyuk , la frontwoman del gruppo e una delle migliori voci metal in circolazione.

Testo
Unsatisfied need makes you push forward
Greed, striving for its reward
Like a racer on the mark,  you burn your rubber
Like a starving shark looking for its supper
You run, run, run, run, run
Until it makes no sense
Your feet are sore but you’re still running
For accomplishment
In this eternal marathon for success
Another day, another dollar, undying motto of success
Slowly to the top
Is it lonely on the top?
Is it lonely on the top?
Ah, tell me, is there anyone for you?
(For you, for you)
Is it lonely on the top?
Ah, tell me, is there anyone for you?
(For you, for you)
The lane is overcrowded
But the top is just for one
While the one is climbing
The rest are falling down
You climb, climb, climb, climb, climb
But the top is rising too
The track is getting longer
And it’s leading to your tomb
You’re not afraid to lose your mind
In the name of profit
Red ribbon is the finish
And the finish in the coffin
Is it lonely on the top?
Ah, tell me, is there anyone for you?
(For you, for you)
Is it lonely on the top?
Ah, tell me, is there anyone for you?
(For you, for you)
Who ran beside is left behind
Begging for help on his knees
Begging for help in tears
He whom you’ve started with, oh
The weak stepped aside, losers are crying
The weak stepped aside, losers are crying
The defeated will live in pain
You hit the top
No surprise
But who will give you the prize?
It’s a race against yourself
Nobody else will meet you there, yeah
