Single of The Day: Linkin Park – Waiting For The End 

PhotobucketPada tanggal 1 Oktober lalu Linkin Park merilis ‘Waiting For The End‘ sebagai single kedua dari album keempat mereka, “A Thousand Suns”. Setelah penggemar dikejutkan dengan sound yang terlalu beda dari penampilan LP sebelum-sebelumnya di single ‘The Catalyst’, disini juga kita masih dikasih sesuatu yang membuat terperangah. Ini sebenarnya membuktikan kejeniusan para personel LP dan kenyataan bahwa mereka enggak kehabisan ide dalam membuat musik.

Dengarkan ‘Waiting For The End’, kemudian ambil satu kesimpulan sebagai deskripsi tepat untuk lagu berdurasi 3 menit 51 detik tersebut. Apakah itu ballad? Ya sebagian dari lagunya memang berkonsentrasi pada balada yang menyemangati dalam lirik yang dinyanyikan Chester Bennington. Tapi, di lain sisi, lagu ini juga terdengar riuh dengan bebunyian drum-jadi alasan utama riuhnya-sebagai musik pengiring rap Mike Shinoda. Kerasa kan penyatuannya? Nah, itu dia yang diunggulkan. Dan ada juga bagian DJ unjuk gigi, sehingga semua memberi warna. Enak banget perpaduannya.

Tahu kan kalau para personel LP ini bukan hanya seniman musik. Itu yang jadi keunggulan LP dibanding beberapa band alternatif rock lainnya. Saat mereka menyajikan musik, mereka juga jago menyajikan tampilannya dalam visualisasi video. Aku juga kagum atas presentasi efek dalam video yang disutradari oleh Joe Hahn ini. It is fantastic! Tonton dech, sekalian menikmati lagunya. Dua jempol!

Lyrics:
[Mike:]
This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone and the violent rhythm
Though the words sound steady something empty’s within them
We say yeah with fists flying up in the air
Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there
Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and the fear
Until we dead it, forget it, let it all disappear

[Chester:]
Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It’s out of my control
Flying at the speed of light
Thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It’s hard to let you go

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got

Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn’t so

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got

[Mike:]
What was left when that fire was gone
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it’s like moving on
And I don’t even know what kind of things I said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead
So I’m picking up the pieces, now where to begin
The hardest part of ending is starting again

[Chester(till end):]
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got
I’m holding on to what I haven’t got
I’m holding on to what I haven’t got

[Mike:]
This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone and the violent rhythm
Though the words sound steady something empty’s within them
We say yeah with fists flying up in the air
Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there
Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and the fear
Until we dead it, forget it let it all disappear
