« Instinctive Drowning » sera dans les bacs à la fin de ce mois (26 août). Le nouvel album de Red Pill aura pour thème générale la relation que lui et ses proches ont (ou ont eu) avec leurs démons. Des démons qui ont pris la forme d’addictions comme l’alcool. C’est cette dernière qui a eu malheureusement raison de la mère et de la grand mère du rappeur de Detroit et membre du trio Ugly Heroes. D’ailleurs, la pochette du disque n’est ni plus ni moins qu’une photo de sa mère.

Après « Fuck Your Ambition », « Gin Tonic » est le deuxième extrait de l’album et est aussi disponible en téléchargement gratuit. Il vient comme une espèce de sequel à un précédent track « Rum And Coke » (sur l’album « Look What This Workd Did To Us »). Comme son titre l’indique, on plonge encore une fois dans le récit des tourments de Red Pill face à sa consommation excessive de boissons alcoolisées.

Et pour mieux nous faire rentrer dans son malaise, il nous partage les lyrics de la chanson en guise de texte de présentation du titre. Efficace.

 

Le titre « Gin Tonic » est disponible en téléchargement gratuit sur le Bandcamp de Red Pill
L’album « Instinctive Drowning » est lui en précommande sur le Bandcamp de Mello Music Group

 
 

« INTRO :
And she said would it be alright
if I got a Rum & Coke
I said baby for tonight let’s pretend that we’re not broke
sick of living in tomorrow
should be living in the here
she whispered something in my ear and said

COUPLET :
I don’t see what the big deal is
rum & cokes aren’t that expensive
plus I’m paying for the drinks
and we’ve been living codependent
we haven’t left that couch in seven months
made a date with divinity but she wouldn’t make me lunch
I was in Boise on a Tuesday when I really saw the future
and I realized at that moment I had always been a loser
Look what the world did?
Fuck it, look what I’ve done to me
All I do is drink and eat
Lay around and fucking sleep
But hey, that’s okay
not sure I’ll see another day
It’s like, that’s alright
there’s probably not another life
So I use that immaturity to cloud my insecurities
And walk around pretending I’ m not afraid of uncertainty
My actions tell me I don’t wanna be alive
But really I’m a little kid who’s still afraid to die

REFRAIN :
All I want is to be happy in this life I got
And Lord I try but I don’t truly know if I can stop
If I would die for them
then I should live for them
If I would die for them
Then I should live

COUPLET :
I used to stay up late at night
thinking about my songs
Now I fall asleep early from drinking all day long
I used to hate the feeling of a Friday night alone
Now I’m too embarrassed of the person I have grown
This song’s the only person that I’ll tell
Cuz there ain’t no going back once you tell them you need some help
I spent every dollar that could be spent
Now I just wonder where the good me went
So be good to one another
Tell my girl I love her
Find a little peace in knowing that I didn’t suffer
This world is full of beauty
This world is for the lovers
Remind of the feeling of a childhood summer
Remind me of the time before when all I did was wonder
The world was still a mystery to me to be discovered
Because I don’t wanna die, Lord I wanna die
No I don’t wanna die

REFRAIN :
All I want is to be happy in this life I got
And Lord I try but I don’t truly know if I can stop
If I would die for them
then I should live for them
If I would die for them
Then I should live

PONT :
It goes one shot of Seagram’s Gin
Two parts of Diet Tonic
Three’s not a lucky charm
Four times I’ve tried to stop it
Fifth’s step’s the hardest
Cuz six is a lie
When seven days a week you’re feeling like you wanna die
There’s eight people that I love
Nine times I’ve made amends
Ten years ago I never thought this’d be the way it ends
Eleven times for rest
And twelve for the month that I climbed into this mess

REFRAIN :
All I want is to be happy in this life I got
And Lord I try but I don’t truly know if I can stop
If I would die for them
then I should live for them
If I would die for them
Then I should live

OUTRO :
I just want Kath to be happy.
I just want Dad to be happy.
I want my brothers to be happy.
I want my friends to be happy.
My generation to be happy.
For Mello to be happy.
Ill Poetic and Charlie to be happy. »
