TGA air new song 'Halloween'



TGA air new song 'Halloween'

Postby PJK » Thu Dec 27, 2012 4:35 pm

The Gaslight Anthem debuted a brand new song, called 'Halloween', on their recent North American tour.

Brian Fallon recently claimed that Pearl Jam have inspired plans for the band's "weird" next album, on which 'Halloween' might feature.

Read the full article here.

Video of the new song:


Lyrics:
Sympathy, this is my best disguise.
My skin stepped out for my bones to dry up,
for the rest of the world outside...to see.
You see I bleed on the side
It's a part time thing, a private affair
I try to keep it out of the light.

I must confess, I didn't recognize you tonight
Dressed up like my love.

And I hate these things but I always attend,
a little sip of something to take off the edge.
And I make my way through the ghosts in the room,
trying to crack a smile.

And who you supposed to be?
You look like heaven tonight
And me I'm a tomb, a corpse in a suit,
trying to look a little alive.
Are you alright?

I worry sometimes,
are you dressed up to take my life?
Keep it coming, keep it coming.

And I think I saw you for the flash of a moment,
Your broken heart and the body that holds it
I lost your scent in the flash of the party.
The big bright lights, baby, constantly haunt me.
I've never been right, have you ever been lied to?
I think I just saw the same scars upon you.
But is this a disguise? A masquerade for me?
Keep it coming, keep it coming.

And who you supposed to be?
Hey you look just like my love.
And who you supposed to be?
Are you dressed just like my love?
And who you supposed to be?
Hey you look just like my love.
And who you supposed to be?
Are you dressed just like my love for Halloween?

I like this new song. I'm excited but a little nervous for the fifth album. Even though I am always excited for new gaslight songs, I find that the sound on Handwritten is close to perfect. I hope they dont try to "fix" what isn't broken

There was an interview where Brian said they never compare what their doing presently to the past. Trying to create an album that is similar to a previous album he said cheats the audience. They just make the album for the moment.

If I had to guess, their next album will be much different from what they did in the past.

I stumbled upon this song again. And I came to the realization that I LOVE this song. In my music class at school, our year end project is putting together a concert where all of us write a song and this song inspires what I want to write haha.

at first I wasnt too crazy about this song when I first heard it @t terminal 5, but its definitely up on my list now. I have never seen a band that had so many great songs without "fillers" or have I heard a band whos songs can grow on you like gaslights. They kinda metamorphosis on you
