Rock Plaza Central - Anthem For The Already Defeated

Song

Anthem For The Already Defeated fa parte della colonna sonora di The Battery, un bellissimo zombie-movie a bassissimo budget (solo 6mila dollari).


Album

Are We Not Horses is an album by Rock Plaza Central. Despite being first released independently, the disc made many top ten lists for 2006, including #8 for CMJ Editor-in-Chief Kenny Herzog, Pitchfork staff writer Stephen Deusner and Americana-UK lead writer David Cowling.

Because the album did not receive an official US release through Yep Roc Records until mid-2007, it made several of those year-end lists as well, including Magnet's "10 Great Hidden Treasures of 2007", calling it "2007's finest folk/rock find".

The album has also recently been taught in a graduate English course at the University of South Alabama, alongside frontman Chris Eaton's first novel, 2003's The Inactivist.


Artist

Rock Plaza Central is a band from TorontoCanada. They came to international attention in 2007 with the release of Are We Not Horses, a critically acclaimed science fiction concept album about six-legged robotic horses in the midst of an existential crisis. They have been on hiatus since 2010.

History

Novelist Chris Eaton began performing and recording under the moniker Rock Plaza Central in the late 1990s. In 1997 he released a debut album, Quantum Butterass, backed by members of Toronto band People From Earth.

For the next six years, Eaton performed with a series of mostly improvised bands, often inviting other musicians to join him onstage at the last minute.

Lyrics

They can take our bones
And bury them deep under the river
But we'll still be together
And we cannot be defeated

They can take our trombones
And pack them down there with us
But no matter how longs it takes us
We will not be defeated

When we dance, we dance together
Under the moon and under the weather
We will lock our eyes forever in the night

Well, they can take our bones
And bury them deep under the river
But we'll still be together
And we cannot be defeated

They can take our fists
And chop them off at the wrist
And we will shake our arms with bloody stumps
And we cannot be defeated

When we dance, we dance together
Under the moon and under the weather
We will shake our arms forever in the night

Testo

Possono prendere le nostre ossa
E seppellirli in profondità sotto il fiume
Ma saremo ancora insieme
E non possiamo essere sconfitti

Possono prendere i nostri tromboni
E comprimili lì con noi
Ma non importa quanto ci vuole
Non saremo sconfitti

Quando balliamo, balliamo insieme
Sotto la luna e sotto il tempo
Bloccheremo i nostri occhi per sempre nella notte

Bene, possono prendere le nostre ossa
E seppellirli in profondità sotto il fiume
Ma saremo ancora insieme
E non possiamo essere sconfitti

Possono prendere i pugni
E tagliarli al polso
E ci stringeremo le braccia con ceppi sanguinanti
E non possiamo essere sconfitti

Quando balliamo, balliamo insieme
Sotto la luna e sotto il tempo
Scuoteremo le braccia per sempre nella notte
