about

Rather Be Alive Barcelona, Spain

Rather Be Alive es el personal mecanismo de expresión de cuatro barceloneses que empezaron a plasmar sus inquietudes musicales en 2012 con su primer EP homónimo. Eso sí, no se sintieron totalmente realizados hasta 2014 con su segundo EP, Resiliència. Tras girar tanto por nuestro país como por fuera (Portugal, Francia, Alemania e Irlanda) ha llegado la hora de que consoliden su proyecto con Origen. ... more

Track Name: SILENCI
SILENCI!!

Para aquest soroll on s’esvaeixen els pensaments
Sons malsonants que li en dieu raonaments
El caminar pautat d’aquesta societat
Paraules imposades sense cap pietat

Vull saber el perquè
Un canvi de to, un canvi de clima...
Vull mostrar-vos com
Arribar a fer un canvi de ritme

Silenci!!
Silenci!!
Silenci!! Calla i mira al teu voltant!!
Silenci!! Per escoltar la realitat!!

Ningú vindrà a respondre per tu
Ja que les paraules sempre es fonen en l’oblit
Actua amb força, només pels fets
Podràs ser recordat

Un sol instant de temps
Escolta’t a tu mateix!!

Silenci!!
Silenci!!
Silenci!! Calla i mira al teu voltant!!
Silenci!! Per escoltar la realitat!!

Para aquest soroll que distorsiona les idees
Sons estridents dels que en vaig ser penitent
El caminar immòbil és el càstig permanent
Per escollir les paraules que són teves

Vull saber perquè... PERQUÈ!!

Silenci!!
Silenci!!
Silenci!! Calla i mira al teu voltant!!
Silenci!! Per escoltar la realitat!!

No sempre és cert, tot el que sents
Pensa per tu mateix
No sempre és cert, obre la ment
Pensa per tu mateix
Pensa per tu mateix!!
Track Name: CONFUSION
I’ve put on so many masks
I don’t recognize myself
I’ve forgotten
What my fucking name is

Caught in the arms of vanity
We play at having it all
All under control
Nothing at all!

The world’s the scene and we’ve sold our self!
We’ve sold our self in exchange of presence!

Too much! Confusion!
Too much! Between us!

I’ll! Do! Whatever it takes!
To be someone everyone knows!
I’ll!! Change! Everything of me!
For fame and fortune
In this culture there’s no other way to be
Kill yourself!
Reborn with lame!
And rest in peace!

We don’t care about the role
We want our own screen shot
A place in the plot
Even if it’s burning oil
In our throat!!

I’ve put on so many masks
I don’t recognize myself!! I’ve forgotten
What my fucking name is

We don’t care about the role
We want our own screen shot
A place in the plot
Even if it’s burning oil
In our throat!!

We’re afraid... Of losing ourself
We’re afraid... Of losing ourself
Everybody is hidden
Everybody is hidden

Everybody is hidden
Everybody is deaf
Everybody is quite
Where is everybody!?

Once I was the killer
I’ve been the victim too
Now I’m part of the public
Making this show come truth

We applause and laugh
We cry and scream as Puppets,
Actors and actresses
Our hearts seem useless!

The world’s the scene and we’ve sold our self!
We’ve sold our self in exchange of presence!

We don’t care about the role
We want our own screen shot
A place in the plot
Even if it’s burning oil
In our throat!!

Confussion! Confussion!
Confussion! Confussion!
Track Name: RAT
It’s like a rat digging in his brain
When he though everything was ok
It is just a matter of time that reality
Make him face all his misery

Broken voices he can’t silence
Makes him stagger to nowhere
Chances have all passed away
So night becomes the best place

You thought there’s no soul
But tonight you can’t sleep
All the money you have earned
Makes you feel like shit!!!

The rat he can’t control is now
The owner of his nomadic soul

Yearning for an ever ending night
He gets blind drunk ‘cause he’s lost
No intention in opening his eyes again
Bottles keep him company towards fate

Light won’t even forgive cowards
Let’s go!!

You thought there’s no soul
But tonight you can’t sleep
All the money you’ve earned
Makes you feel like shit!!!

Hard hangover when he awakes
Dried mouth, burning headache
Lying down in a lost and sandy land
He lights clumsy his last broken cigarette

In the first bench he finds he’ll sit
With amnesia and still feeling sick
One more night left before Monday
When I’ll be again the Devil’s Lawyer

When I’ll be again the Devil’s Lawyer!!

RAT!!
