This Winter Machine《The man who never was》


乐队主页:This Winter Machine

This Winter Machine是一支英国新晋前卫摇滚乐队,成员包括:Al WYNTER (主唱), Gary JEVON (吉他), Marcus MURRAY (鼓), Mark NUMAN (键盘), 和Peter PRIESTLY (贝斯)。组建于2016年,在2017年将发行第一张专辑《The Man Who Never Was》。他们的音乐深受70年代交响前摇和80年代新前摇的影响,特别是Marillion, IQ, Pendragon, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Rush 和Genesis。


乐队在主页上是这么描述自己的音乐的:

Taking their cues and influences from the pioneers of the genre in the 70s and 80s they bring the sound right up to date combining soaring and emotive vocals, thought provoking lyrics, consummate and evocative musicianship and melodies that linger long after the music stops.
“高亢而充满感情的演唱,发人深思的歌词,完美的音乐才能,在听过之后令人回味良久。”

这显然有些过分自夸,不过熊猫哥哥在听过之后也觉得这是一支很好的乐队,尽管是首张专辑,但已经相当成熟(虽然乐队成员也不是年轻人了)。主唱的声音其实有点像Rush的主唱,较为高亢(乐队表示他们深受rush的影响),歌词上来说也有一些不错的片段,而音乐旋律上则的确相当优美。可以这么说,这是一支很均衡的乐队,初听很悦耳,再听也不会觉得腻。熊猫哥哥认为,听多了那些充满野心和实验性的前卫摇滚,再来听听冬日机器这张朴实无华的专辑,实在有种返璞归真、返回音乐初心的乐趣,丝毫不矫情,也不故作高深,而是显得很有诚意,很纯粹。特此把歌词翻译出来,试听的话大家可以网上搜索一下,绝对不会令你失望。

1.The Man Who Never Was

未曾有之人

(i) Asleep

沉睡

————————————————

I have a photograph for my memory

Too many people know this person as me

Another stranger that I try to ignore

Confusing who I am with what happened before

Taking me back through the cold and the rain

Making it hard to remember my name

我有一张用以回忆的照片

太多人认识像我这样的人

而对陌生人我则试图忽略

我困惑于我是谁,困惑于过去发生什么

带我穿过寒冷和阴雨

它们使我很难记起我的名字

————————————————

Another principle mistaken for pride

Always beside myself but not satisfied

We only see the things that we want to see

I know I never was the man I used to be

Taking me back through the cold and the rain

Making it hard to remember my name

出于骄傲所犯的原则错误

总是在我身旁,却不满足

我们只看见我们想看见的事物

我知道我从来都不是我曾是的那个人

带我穿过寒冷和阴雨

它们使我很难记起我的名字

————————————————

(ii) Dreaming

梦境

————————————————

I remember the lights and the noise and the pain

I remember the looks and the voices and shame

I remember the ones that I tried to impress

Spinning alone in the dark and the dizzying emptiness

我记得光芒和喧嚣和痛苦

我记得容貌和声音和耻辱

我记得铭刻心间的那个人

独自旋转在黑暗和令人目眩的空虚中

————————————————

And now its hard to look back without breaking my neck

And its hard to stand tall when you've lost your respect

But at least I can say my mistakes were my own

Lost in a sea full of doubt and opportunities blown

现在不折断脖子很难去追忆

当你失去尊重你很难站得高

但最后,我可以说错误是我铸成的

迷失在怀疑之海中,而机会溜走

————————————————

All the time I think I'm learning

So divided, so deserving

Take for granted all they give me

So alone and still so empty

我一直认为我在学习

如此分裂,如此值得

他们给我的我认为理所当然

如此孤独,始终如此空虚

————————————————

Try to see the mess I'm making

Close to ghosts and close to breaking

Leave me with this empty feeling

So alone and so revealing

试着去瞧瞧我制造的混乱

接近于幽灵,接近于破坏

让我带着空虚的感觉

如此孤独,如此真实

————————————————

(iii) Snow



————————————————

She comes down like the rain to me

She comes down and the rain sets me free

She lights up like a shining star

She lights up and you know where you are

她如雨般降下

她如雨般让我自由

她如明星般点亮我

她如此善良,你知道你在哪儿

————————————————

I suddenly see through the haze on the darkest of days

Like a smile that surrounds me

Tumbling down from the sky like a final goodbye

And I know where I need to be

在最黑暗的日子里,我突然看穿了阴霾

就像环绕于我的微笑

从天空轰然倒塌,就像一个最后的告别

我知道我需要在哪里

————————————————

Watching the seasons unfold from a safe place I know

A design never ending

Covering all of my thoughts in a blanket of snow

That is gone by the morning

看着四季在我知晓的安全地方展开

设计从未终结

一层厚厚的雪掩盖了我所有的思想

而在早晨离开

————————————————

(iv) Awake

醒来

————————————————

I tried hard to imagine what was keeping me here

All I saw was the anger, the sadness and fear

Is this part of a of a puzzle or maybe part of a plan?

'Cause nobody looks in the eyes of an invisible man

我努力想象是什么让我在这里

我看到的都是愤怒,悲伤和恐惧

这是谜题的一部分还是计划的一部分?

因为没有人看起来在无形之人的眼中

————————————————

I remember so clearly all the noise and the pain

And my reason for being nearly drove me insane

When I try to forget I remember it all

And I still hear the sounds in the dark I just dont answer the call

我记忆中的喧嚣和痛苦如此清楚

我存在的理由几乎把我导向疯狂

当我试图去忘记我记起的一切时

我依然听见黑暗中的声音,我只是不回答这呼唤

————————————————

2.The Wheel

命运之轮

————————————————

Think its time to see

A thousand empty faces that we'll never be

All this time, its too late to find

We're letting go of all that we need

Its too late

All that we had is gone

We stare into the darkness of the endless sea

Just too late

We all have to carry on

Holding on to what we believe

是时候去看了

我们永不会成为的千张空虚的脸

一直以来,都太迟去发现了

我们让所有我们需要的都离开了

太迟了

我们所有的都离开了

我们凝视着无尽之海中的无尽黑暗

只是太迟了

我们都必须继续

坚持我们信仰之物

————————————————

Is it real, how much we feel?

Or is it just how much we reveal?

Is it truth or what we conceal?

We all ride the wheel...

它是真的吗,我们感觉到多少?

或者它只是我们揭露的多少?

它是真相还是我们隐藏之物?

我们都在命运之轮上……

————————————————

Temptation means you can get left behind

Looking for the something that you'll never find

Obsession can carry your life away

Silently just stealing your time

诱惑表示你可以留下

去寻找你永远不会发现的某物

固执会把你的生命带走

默然也会偷走你的时间

————————————————

Lights you thought would guide you were the lights to almost blind you

Seem to tighten and confine you til it breaks you in the end

You cant shake the feeling that the anger that you're keeping

Leaves you permanently bleeding nothing left now to defend

点亮你思想,引导你的光也是几乎让你致盲的光

仿佛去收缩和限制你,直到在最后破坏你

你无法撼动你保持的怒火

把你留在永恒的流血中,现在无物可以防卫

————————————————

Somewhere in the distance holds the path of least resistance

But you lose it in an instant underneath your darkened star

Sometimes they think they know you and have all their worlds to show you

But I know this time it holds you and its really gone too far

遥远的某处有着最小阻力的路径

但在你变暗的群星下你在瞬间丢失了它

有时他们认为他们知道你,给你展示所有他们的世界

但我知道这时它把持住你,它真的离远了

————————————————

3.Lullaby (Interrupted)

(中断的)摇篮曲

————————————————

————————————————

4.After Tomorrow Comes

明日之后

————————————————

Please dont ask me what you mean to me

All the reasons that you never see

Please dont tell me how I really feel

All the nightmares that I know are real

请不要问我你对于我意味着什么

你不曾知道所有的理由

请不要告诉我我的感觉是什么

我知道所有的梦都是真实的

————————————————

And oh, you'll see

Just hold on and believe

以及,你会知道

只要坚持然后相信

————————————————

Let me show you

What could never be

From the shadows of my memory

I know that everything can get lost sometimes

When the answer is between the lines

让我告诉你

什么永远不可能

从我记忆的阴影中

我知道所有东西都可能会失去

当答案就在字里行间

————————————————

She counts the years

Counts the tears

Away from the sunshine

She holds it close

Doesn't let it show

That inside she's dying

She knows the dream

And what it means

And after tomorrow comes

Let it go, again

Its getting too heavy

And nothing seems to matter

她计算着岁月

计算着泪水

离开阳光

她把它关闭

不让它展现

她在内部死亡

她知道梦想

知道它意味着什么

在明日之后

让它再次离开吧

它变得太沉重

似乎没什么是重要的了

————————————————

How can it be?

We were never all we could be?

Why cant you see?

This is not an illusion.

怎么会这样?

我们从不会是我们可能的样子?

为什么你看不见?

这不是幻觉

————————————————

I cant imagine what it did to you

But I am always here to help you through

Its so easy to get left behind

But out of sight was never out of mind

我可以想象它对你做了什么

但我总是在这儿帮你渡过

把一切抛在身后很容易

但不在眼中不代表不在心中

————————————————

5.Fractured

折断

————————————————

When the clouds are burning

But the world keeps turning

Do we know

Or just watch them glow

Our mistake was thinking

That we were ever winning

Just talk to me

And we can be free

当乌云燃烧时

但世界依然在转动

你知道吗

还是只是看着它们发展

我们的错误在酝酿

我们曾经赢过

只要和我说话

我们可以自由的

————————————————

Oh but we carry on

And we fracture all our dreams

With impetuous extremes

Oh but we carry on

Most of the time

Til we reach the line

哦但我继续犯错

我们折断我们所有的梦想

用冲动和极端

哦但我们继续犯错

在大多数时间

直到到达终点

————————————————

As the stars are falling

We ignore the warnings

Eyes open wide

Revealing inside

We remain divided

Confused and undecided

Just take my hand

And we'll make a stand

当星星坠落时

我们忽视了警告

眼睛睁开

揭示着内在

我们依然在分裂

困惑和犹豫

只要抓着我的手

我们会坚定立场的

————————————————

I never knew exactly what to say

Reality to sympathy, then watch me fade away

But I still try to keep an open mind

So read me like an open book, and leave it all behind

我从不知道究竟该说什么

真诚的同情,然后看着我消失

但我依然试着保持开放的思维

所有像一本打开的书那样阅读我,让一切抛在身后

————————————————

Its hard to know just what we have achieved

Waiting for some miracle, for something to believe in

All of what we were is lost in time

A new forgotten memory, another endless climb?

We're fractured...

We're fractured...

很难知道我们成就了什么

等待着奇迹,等待着信仰某物

我们所有拥有的都迷失在时间里

一个全新的被遗忘的记忆,另一个无尽的攀爬?

我们被折断了……

我们被折断了……

————————————————

Oh but we carry on

And we fracture all our dreams

With impetuous extremes

Oh but we carry on

Most of the time

This is the end of the line

哦但我继续犯错

我们折断我们所有的梦想

用冲动和极端

哦但我们继续犯错

在大多数时间

这是命运的终点
