Από το πιο συμπαθή μου εναλλακτικά γκρουπ των ’90s και εντεύθεν, οι Deftones, σε ένα τραγούδι βγαλμένο από σκοτεινές πτυχές της μαθητικής ζωής: το ντιλάρισμα με τη “σχολική κλίκα”.
Όλοι μας, καθένας/μία με το δικό του/της τρόπο, έχουμε μια ιδέα του τι σημαίνει αυτό.

From one my most likeable alternative group of the ’90s and beyond, the Deftones, a song resulted from a dark aspect of student life: the dealing with the “school clique”. All of us, each in his/her own way, have an idea of what this means.

❝ So run
Right
Right back to school
Check it
Look back I sift through all the cliques
Roaming’ the halls all year, making me sick
While everyone’s out tryin to make the cut
What?
And when you think you know me right I switch it up
Behind the walls smokin’ cigarettes and sippin’ vodka
I profess to catch a cab, ain’t no one can stop us
Give me a break about some other mess
What were you?
Act like it’s everything you got
Push back the square
Now that you need her but you don’t
So there you go
‘Cause back in school
We are the leaders of it all
Stop that, quit! All that, quit!
Who ruined it? You did! Now grab a notebook and a pen
Start taking notes, I’m being everyone who’s on the top
You think we’re on the same page – but, oh we’re not!
I’ll be the man, watch your backpack and the pencils
Just like he now flippin it, why you just keep it simple?
You just can’t go wrong rocking’ the clothes
Coppin’ the stance
‘Cause really is everything that you got
Push back the square
Now that you need her but you don’t
So there you go!
‘Cause back in school
We are the leaders of it all
So
Transpose
Or stop your lies
It’s what you do
Transpose
Or stop your lies
So run
So why don’t you run, so why don’t you run
So why don’t you run back to school
So why don’t you run, so why don’t you run
now I’m on the next page
(All you are) it’s time to close the book up
(All you are) I’m on the next page
(All you are) close the book up now
Push back the square
Now that you need her but you don’t
So there you go!
‘Cause back in school
We are the leaders of all
So run
Why don’t you rush, why don’t you run
Why don’t you run back to school
Why don’t you rush, why don’t you run ❞


Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
