Within Temptation (feat. Chris Jones)-Utopia

The burning desire to live and roam free
It shines in the dark and it grows within me
You're holding my hand but you don't understand
So where I am going you won't be in the end

I'm dreaming in colours of getting the chance
I'm dreaming of china the perfect romance
The search of the door to open your mind
The search of the cure of mankind

Help us, we're drowning
So closed up inside

Why does it rain, rain, rain down on utopia?
Why does it have to kill the ideal of who we are?
Why does it rain, rain, rain down on utopia?
How will the lights die down, telling us who we are?

I'm searching for answers not given for free
They live inside as they lie within me
You hold my hand but you don't understand
Taking the road all alone in the end

I'm dreaming in colours, no boundaries again
Dreaming the dream we all seem to share
The search of the door to open your mind
The search of the cure of mankind

Help us, we're drowning
So closed up inside

Why does it rain, rain, rain down on utopia?
Why does it have to kill the ideal of who we are?
Why does it rain, rain, rain down on utopia?
How will the lights die down, telling us who we are?


Why does it rain, rain, rain down on utopia?
Why does it have to kill the ideal of who we are?
Why does it rain, rain, rain down on utopia?
How will the lights die down, telling us who we are?
Why does it rain?

歌名Utopia,乌托邦,大概的意思大家都明白,就是指无法实现的理想社会形态。乌托邦内,人人平等,物品共享,没有压迫。

The burning desire to live and roam free
It shines in the dark and it grows within me

在说人类追寻这种理想的渴望。“追寻自由的渴望,在黑暗中闪亮,在我体内生长"。这种对乌托邦式的美好的渴望在人类心中是不灭的。而这里并不一定只是指理想社会,可以理解为人类对一切美好事物的渴望。

I'm dreaming in colours of getting the chance
I'm dreaming of china the perfect romance
The search of the door to open your mind
The search of the cure of mankind

I'm dreaming in colours, no boundaries again
Dreaming the dream we all seem to share

“China"的出现,确实很诡异。我也只能理解为,中国是最有影响力的社会主义国家,也是理论上最接近“乌托邦”制度的地方(只是理论上........)。而“Romance”则并不是浪漫的爱情,而是浪漫的理想。这种梦想没有停止,探索没有停止。“敞开心扉,治愈人类”。“没有国界,一切共享”多么美丽的梦。

但我们都知道,乌托邦是无法实现的。它只是渴望,是不可能真正存在的。这是理解整首歌的关键。这样,接下来的歌词,以及MV的情节就显得很自然了。

I'm searching for answers not given for free
You hold my hand but you don't understand
Taking the road all alone in the end

乌托邦没有纠纷,没有争吵。但它并不存在。因此这种追寻的过程注定是痛苦的,这样I'm searching for answers not given for free就可以理解了。You're holding my hand, But you don't understand. 不应理解为爱情,而是一种广义的比喻,正如我们人人“手拉手”,肩并肩,共建和谐社会。但是,我们的心灵真的是相通的么?我们尽管有共同的理想,但它是虚幻的,不真实的。于是,许多人选择放弃,最后,仍然坚持的人们,在路上只能是独自战斗,Taking the road all alone in the end....

Help us, we're drowning
So closed up inside

救救我们,我们正在沉溺。显然,在追寻这种无法实现的理想的途中,现实重创了我们。盲目出现了,问题出现了。MV中,主角一直”在路上“,他以为,前方通向的是他心中的美好。于是,自以为潇洒地给了卖艺的吉他手钱,以为自己帮助了他。但接下来,盲人被偷走了钱包,主角没有帮助她。面对戴着头套正在涂鸦的问题青年,主角也是无奈。抢走老人跨包的强盗,卖身的妓女,主角也是熟视无睹。主角流泪了。因为在路上,他看到的一切,都是与他心中的世界那么不符。但他却无力改变。这与不断重复的副歌就符合了。

Why does it rain, rain, rain down on utopia?
Why does it have to kill the ideal of who we are?

这显然不是说为什么乌托邦会下雨。雨是在隐喻所有不和谐的事物。当然,也可以理解为眼泪。为什么乌托邦也有问题?因为乌托邦本就是不存在的。如果你只看到乌托邦上方的Rain,而不去认清现实,并改变它,那么和主角一样,只能默默流泪,哭诉理想的破灭。

但主角最后还是通过一个小小的举动,就救了小男孩一命。这里就是典型的“希望型”结尾了.............

接下来省略5000字,总之就是世界是美好的,未来是光明的,乌托邦虽然不存在,但我们也可以通过自己的行动,让现有的世界变得更和谐。
