Placebo - For What Its Worth

Placebo Battle for the Sun“For What Its Worth” è la traccia numero 4 di “Battle for the Sun”, quarto album del gruppo “Placebo”. Uscito nel 2009, questa canzone è il primo singolo estratto dall’album. I Placebo sono una alternative rock band britannica. Il loro nome deriva dal concetto medico di placebo: la band lo scelse proprio pensando a “qualcosa che tu credi ti faccia sentire meglio”. Finora hanno venduto oltre 10 milioni di dischi e godono tuttora di una buona fama internazionale. Sono noti anche per aver portato avanti uno stile musicale molto variegato, che ha saputo spaziare dal britpop al post-grunge, passando per neo-glam, punk rock e diverse sperimentazioni elettroniche che si possono notare negli ultimi album. La formazione attuale della band è formata da Brian Molko(voce, chitarra), Stefan Olsdal(basso, chitarra, tastiera) e Steve Forrest(batteria). Quest’ultimo ha sostituito Steve Hewitt agli inizi del 2008. Grazie all’album “Battle for the Sun”, il 5 novembre 2009 agli “MTV Europe Music Awards” di Berlino i Placebo vincono il premio “Best Alternative”.

Testo
The end of the century
I said my goodbyes
For what it’s worth
I always aim to please
But I nearly died

For what it’s worth
Come on lay with me
’Cause I’m on fire
For what it’s worth
I tear the sun in three
To light up your eyes

For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth

Broke up the family
Everybody cried
For what it’s worth
I have a slow disease
That sucked me dry
For what it’s worth
Come on walk with me
Into the rising tide
For what it’s worth
Filled a cavity
Your god shaped hole tonight

For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth
For what it’s worth

No one cares when you’re out on the street
Picking up the pieces to make ends meet
No one cares when you’re down in the gutter
Got no friends got no lover

No one cares when you’re out on the street
Picking up the pieces to make ends meet
No one cares when you’re down in the gutter
Got no friends got no lover

For what it’s worth
Got no lover
For what it’s worth
Got no lover
For what it’s worth
Got no lover
For what it’s worth
Got no lover
For what it’s worth
Got no lover
For what it’s worth
Got no lover
For what it’s worth
Got no lover

Got no friends got no lover
