Приветствую Вас Гость
 

1999 - MELTDOWN

Джон написал, и спродюссировал все песни с альбома, кроме "Soul Fire", которая была написана регги певцом Ли Перри(Lee Perry). Meltdown был записан уже в 1992 году дома у Джона, как раз перед выпуском Дюраном в The Wedding Album. Альбом был выпущен им на собственном лейбле. Джон описал его как "оптимистичный электронный танцевальный альбом с элементами хип-хопа". В некоторых песня видно его недовольство образом жизни Duran Duran. Позже Джон рассказывал,что в это время он был очень близок к уходу из группы,но его сдержал внезапный успех "Ordinary World" и "Come Undone" в 1993 году.

21st Century Teenager
This ain't rock and roll!
Ladies and Gentlemen...
Go beyond the boundaries laid by Elvis
Go beyond the recipes of Clash
Usurp those strolling criminals of excess
Take the techno out of pop (and make it into rock)
See the weary traveller of Blade Runner
And introduce an element of thrash
Mix the bleeding ceremonies of power
March it coast to coast for one night stands
21st century teenager gets more for it's money
21st century teenager likes acid with it's ice
21st century teenager takes lessons how to fly
21st century teenager likes politics to fly
Angel came from heaven just to bring the mighty wah
Shake some awesome doodah in for spice
Build a citadel of TV tube and video
Ship the underground to the mainstream (the crossover)
I'll use this for religion if you don't mind
I need one badly & this one's right here
The open air cathedral of the media has come
Let's marvel at the megatomic bomb
21st century teenager gets more for it's money
21st century teenager likes acid with it's ice
21st century teenager takes lessons how to fly
21st century teenager likes politics to fly
It's the state of the art alright...

 

Подросток двадцать первого века.
Это не рок-н-ролл!
Дамы и господа ...
Переступите границы,наложенные Элвисом
Это больше, чем рецепты "Clash"
Надо узурпировать этих преступников,их слишком много
Сделайте "техно" из "поп"(высекайте это на скалах)
Посмотрите на усталого путника из "Blade Runner"
И внесите элементы "трэш"
Смешайте кровотечение властных церемоний
В марте обойдите за одну ночь всё: от побережья до побережья
Подросток двадцать первого века получит за это большие деньги
Подросток двадцать первого века любит кислоту этого льда
Подросток двадцать первого века учится летать
Подросток двадцать первого века любит политику и поэтому летает
Ангел сошёл с небес,чтобы всех сильно удивить
Создал некоторые удивительные вещи
Сделал кабель для TV,создал видео,
Судно под замлёй для основной массы людей
Я буду использовать это как религию,если вы не возражаете
Мне плохо,мне нужен кто-то один прямо здесь
Пришло время для СМИ,у них много воздуха
Давайте восхищаться мега бомбами
Подросток двадцать первого века получит за это большие деньги
Подросток двадцать первого века любит кислоту этого льда
Подросток двадцать первого века учится летать
Подросток двадцать первого века любит политику и поэтому летает
Это современно и хорошо...

We've No Time (For One Another)
Driving up down Fountain Ave. I'll tell you how it is:
We've no time for one another
Changed a lot since we first met we've changed the way we live
Now we've no time for each other
How do you keep a flame alive and burning?
What do you have to sacrifice to hold on to it all?
Why do you think the birds have all stopped singing?
What do we have to do to make it like it used to be?
We got to give it all we got if we want more than memories
We got to THINK
Make some room for love
Find some time for one another
Think: Do we really care?
Do we care for one another?
Days go by so fast I hardly see you
We spend so little time together I hardly know
you at all
I can't believe we've really just been married
It must have been a spell that woman cast on
us that night...
Maybe we've just been spoilt too much
We've lived in one another's pockets for so very long
Maybe it's just down to the change of season
What do we have to do to make it better than today?
We've got to give it all we've got if we want more than
memory yeah
Because we've no time for one another...
We've no time for one another
We've no time for one another
We've no time for one another
Driving you out late one night I tell you how it is
We've no time for one another
We got to change the way we live and think about
each other
If we want to stay together
 
У нас нету времени друг для друга
Подъезжая вниз к улице Фонтанов,я расскажу тебе об этом:
У нас нет времени друг для друга
Многое изменилось, когда мы впервые встретились мы изменили наш образ жизни
Теперь у нас нет времени друг для друга
Как ты поддерживаешь жизнь пламени?
Что ты должна принести в жертву, чтобы удержать все это?
Почему ты думаешь,что все птицы перестали петь?
Что мы должны сделать,чтобы сделать так,как было раньше?
Мы должны отдать ему все,что мы получили,если мы хотим большего,чем воспоминания
Мы должны думать,создавать определенные условия для любви
Найти какое-то время друг для друга
Подумай: действительно ли нам все равно?
Можем ли мы заботиться друг о друге?
Дни проходят так быстро,что я вряд ли увижу тебя
Мы бываем так мало времени вместе, я не знаю тебя вообще...
Я не могу поверить, что мы действительно только что был женаты
Должно быть,это заклинание, которое кто-то наслал на нас ночью
Может быть, мы просто были слишком сильно испорчены
Мы жили друг у друга за пазухой так долго
Возможно, это просто смена времени года
Что мы должны сделать,чтобы всё было лучше,чем сегодня?
Мы должны отдать ему все,что у нас есть,если мы хотим большего,чем просто воспоминания,да...
Потому что у нас нет времени друг для друга ...
У нас нет времени друг для друга
У нас нет времени друг для друга
У нас нет времени друг для друга
Давай поедем поздно ночью куда-нибудь и я расскажу тебе,что это...
У нас нет времени друг для друга
Мы должны изменить наш образ жизни и думать друг о друге
Если мы хотим остаться вместе...

Meltdown
We're headed for a meltdown...
We're headed for a meltdown and if you don't mind
I'll disappear
I've no desire to hand around within this grim theatre
We're headed for a meltdown
No more of your favourite tunes going round
I'm no jukebox feed me quarters light me up
I'd be headed for a meltdown
with you and you and especially you- Meltdown
Now don't take this personal but I think we've got a meltdown
I've felt this way one hundred times but
Putting feelings into spielings has not been my speciality
I've packed my case we're headed west facing up to the test
Proving my religion proving one on one it can be done
I'm heading for a meltdown
We're all we're all- Meltdown
Stormclouds gather diplomats scatter
What once were threats turn to reality
Warnings overtime gone unheeded
Attitudes instead of changing harden
Daily routine turns to boredom
Boredom? You wrote the book on boredom, Norton
It's getting harder everyday just to be yourself
I'm sick of hearing "things are going to change, things are
going to change"
When the only thing that's changing is me
And this me just ran out of sympathy
Now I hate to be the harbinger and please don't shoot
the messenger
But we've passed the point of talk oh yeah we've past
the point of talk
We're headed for a meltdown

Mister J
You got to get a little sleep now just once in a while
You got to pay your bills now even though it hurts
You got to take a little sunshine and feed those cells
You'll be waiting on line now if you don't stay hip
Mister J Mister JJ you'll dance your life away
Mister J Mister JJ you'll fuck your life away
You better take a little time out from all those girls
You better put that hat back where you picked it up from
You better make a little money before you spend it all
It'll be September before you get outta jail
Mister J Mister JJ you'll dance your life away
Mister J Mister JJ you'll fuck your life away
You better make a little milk now feed all your babies
You better lose a little weight now learn to drive your own Mercedes
You better brush your teeth now before you go to bed
Take your vitamin E cream for your vitamin head
Mister J Mister JJ you'll dance your life away
Mister J Mister JJ you'll fuck your life away

Fat Boy's Gone
Well my instincts is right
Time to walk from the fire
Leave the burnin' behind me
Take a walk to the water
Cause living ain't easy- you get a lot of monkey
And living in the crowd makes me uneasy
All of the lifelines keep on getting longer
See us humming see us alive
FATBOY'S DONE FATBOY'S GONE
I know you want me and I want you
I'm easy to live with- but I'm easy to lose
So take a hold now hold me by the hand
And don't let me go now not for any other man
FATBOY'S DONE FATBOY'S GONE
And though I know I won't be leaving you
I feel at most the change is over
I like to think we're getting older
It makes no difference to this story...
FATBOY'S DONE FATBOY'S GONE
Cause living ain't easy- you get a lot of monkey
And living in the crowd makes me uneasy
All of the lifelines keep on getting longer people
getting older
I know you want me and I want you
I'm easy to live with- I'm easy to lose
So take a hold now hold me by the hand
And don't let me go now not for any other man

King Porn
King Porn's left town gone underground we're
getting rid of all of his mess
Time he went long overdue we've put up
with his view for too long
Lay it down: King Porn's left town
He left before the morning come left
before she'd had enough
Packed her bags filled with her stuff made
for pastures nearly new
All because of what he do fill his mind
with sticky goo
Sticky pages with sticky glue
It's never too late to start anew
King Porn's gone down he been doing the rounds
Of seedy undercover seersuckered up sounds
Word's gone round: King Porn's left town
Lest not we judge just eat your lunch
There's a KP nut under all our garb
Don't look too close or dig too deep
or you'll be setting up with your backpack and keep
It's never too late to start anew
King Porn Check it out...
Uptown downtown taxi cabs looking for the light
blue light that shines in his eyes
Don't get caught up on too many red lights
The area's still there but the head's moved on
No longer blue light now warm and tender red
King Porn's gone down he's been doing the rounds
Of seedy undercover seer underground hangs
Word's gone round: Time to get down...
It's never too late

So Banal
How come a touch is so exciting?
It keeps me up all night long
Just thinking of you and your sweet things
It makes me want for you more
You've got a look that delights me
You've got me down on the floor
Just visualizing the what you'll wear
It gets me through the day
You do that thing to me
It's what keeps me free
You do that thing to me
You touch me
You do that thing to me
It's what keeps me alive
It's what keeps me beside myself
The clock on the wall says 5pm
It's time to lock up the store
I can't contain my own heartbeat
To know that you're waiting home
You're just deciding what games we'll play
You keep me so electrified
I never know who I'll come home to
I just know what you'll do
You do that thing to me
It's what keeps me free
You do that thing to me
You touch me
You do that thing to me
It's what keeps me alive
It's what keeps me beside myself
You do that thing to me
It's what keeps me free
You do that thing to me
You touch me
You do that thing to me
It's what keeps me alive
It's what keeps me beside myself
You do that thing to me
You do that thing to me
You do that thing to me
You do that thing to me

Some Times
Some times things get me crazy- Some times things get me down
Like when the phone starts ringing- I'm glad that you're around
Like when the bill comes calling- without you I'd be lost
I've got to have you near me- I've got to have you here with me
At times I think you mean it- you say you've never seen it
A love like this has never come your way
I'm inclined to believe you- take a chance and trust you
Stick around right here with you
At night you're holding me so tight
You're holding me like it's alright
Some times I get hazy- Some times I get blue
It's times like these I need you- I'm glad I fell for you
Some times love means best times-
Some times it means the worst
I know it's a kind of gamble- but I do know just what you're worth
Most times I know you mean it- though you've strange ways to show it
I guess we get a little confused some times
I'll hang around and stay close-
It's what we both have wanted
Stick around right here with you
At night you're holding me so tight
You're holding me like it's alright
You hold me like the best of times
I've no choice but to stay with you
