簡介

美國R&B 創作歌手Alicia Keys推出最新歌曲《Perfect Way To Die》,內容關於美國最近的警暴事件的歌曲,Alicia 為了正義和權利發聲,並從母親的角度出發,述說了最近發生的暴力事件,還有人們因這次事件而起的系列街頭抗議。

Alicia Keys在日前上載了《Perfect Way To Die》的MV,她以一身全黑的造型彈著鋼琴,看著大廈上的畫像,紀念著因為暴力事而死去的人們。MV更看到地上寫著死者的名字,包括因警暴而死去的George Floyd。

Alicia Keys表示「我感覺到音樂對我前所未有的呼喚,《Perfect Way To Die》這首歌的歌名有力,同時令人心碎,是因為我們因為如此多不公地死去的人而傷透了心。當然,世上是沒有完美的死亡方法。這個措辭甚至不合邏輯,但就像警暴一樣不合邏輯,本不應該奪走這麼多無辜的生命。」

歌詞

Simple walk to the corner store
Momma never thought she would be getting a call from the coroner
Said her son's been gunned down, been gunned down
"Can you come now?"
Tears in her eyes, "Can you calm down?
Please, ma'am, can you calm down?"

But it rained fire in the city that day
They say
A river of blood in the streets
No love in the streets
And then came silence in the city that day
They say
Just another one gone
And they tell her, "Move on"
And she's stuck there singing:

Baby, don't you close your eyes
This could be our final time
And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye
And I think of all you could've done
At least you'll stay forever young
I guess you've picked the perfect way to die
Ooh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die

New job, new city, new her
Bright eyes, you would've been proud if you knew her
Flashing lights in the mirror, pull over, pull over
A couple nights in detention then it's over
Her whole life's over

They came marching in the city that day
They say
Carrying signs in the streets
Crying eyes in the street
But they heard nothing from the city that day
They say
Just another one gone
And the city moves on
We're stuck here singing:

Baby, don't you close your eyes
'Cause this could be our final time
And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye
And I think of all you could've done
At least you'll stay forever young
I guess you've picked the perfect way to die
Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die

Another dream lost
Another king and queen lost
Another broken promise they refuse to make right
Oh, another night to live in fear
Oh, another night that you're not here
Another reason to get out there and fight
But I say:

Baby, don't you close your eyes
'Cause this could be our final time
And you know I'm horrible at saying goodbye
And I think of all you could've done
At least you'll stay forever young
I guess you've picked the perfect way to die
Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way
