redto-black.web.id – Lost In The Echo. Sebuah kabar mengejutkan datang dari Linkin Park, group band kesukaan saya dari SMP. Vokalisnya, Chester Bennington meninggal dunia, diduga kuat karena bunuh diri.

Lost In The Echo

Potongan tweet dari Mike Shinoda, personil band Linkin Park. “ Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one “. Chester dikenal sebagai vokalis band yang memiliki scream yang panjang dan berkarakter, dia merupakan vokalis utaman Linkin Park, selain Mike Shinoda yang biasa menjadi backing vocal, mc dan rapper.

Lost In The Echo. Linkin Park mengeluarkan album terakhirnya One More Light pada Mei 2017. Salah satu lagu yang ada dalam album One More Light ini adalah ” Good Goodbye “, bisa jadi ini memang salam perpisahan yang disampaikan Chester Bennington untuk fansnya. Selain itu ada beberapa lagu yang menurut saya sedikit menyerempet ke hal-hal perpisahan, antara lain ” Nobody Can Save Me ” dan ” Sorry For Now ” . Meskipun lagu-lagu tersebut ditulis oleh Mike Shinoda, namun kebetulan liriknya sedikit mengarah ke sebuah perpisahan.

Tanpa Alasan saya sempat hobi mendengarkan lagu Linkin Park, dari albumnya Hybrid Theory, Reanimation, Meteora, Minutes to Midnight dan A Thousand Sun saya punya kaset dan CDnya. Sampai sekarang pun kadang saya memutar mp3nya untuk selingan atau saat sedang istirahat. Dan ini satu-satunya band yang selalu saya ikuti, terutama untuk rilis lagu barunya.

“Lost In The Echo”

You were that foundation
Never gonna be another one, no.
I followed, so taken
So conditioned I could never let go
Then sorrow, then sickness
Then the shock when you flip it on me
So hollow, so vicious
So afraid I couldn’t let myself see
That I could never be held
Back or up no, I’ll hold myself
Check the rep, yep you know mine well
Forget the rest let them know my hell
There and back yet my soul ain’t sell
Kept respect up,the best they fell,
Let the rest be the tale they tell
That I was there saying…

In these promises broken
Deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go, go, go.

Test my will, test my heart
Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
Y’all go hard, I go smart
How’s that working out for y’all in the back, huh?
I’ve seen that frustration
Been crossed and lost and told “No”
And I’ve come back unshaken
Let down and lived and let go
So you can let it be known
I don’t hold back, I hold my own
I can’t be mapped, I can’t be cloned
I can’t C-flat, it ain’t my tone
I can’t fall back, I came too far
Hold myself up and love my scars
Let the bells ring wherever they are
‘Cause I was there saying…

In these promises broken
Deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie I can see through
This time I finally let you go!!!
Go, go, go.

No, you can tell ’em all now
I don’t back up, I don’t back down
I don’t fold up, and I don’t bow
I don’t roll over, don’t know how
I don’t care where the enemies are
Can’t be stopped, all I know; go hard
Won’t forget how I got this far
For every time saying…

In these promises broken
Deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go, go, go. (Go, go, go)
Go. go, go. (Go, go, go)

 

RIP. Chester Bennington ( March 20, 1976 – July 20, 2017 )
