Imagine Dragons x J.I.D

Enemy

La versione originale del brano Enemy è già una hit grazie alla colonna sonora di “Arcane“, la nuova serie animata Netflix ideata dai creatori della saga dei videogame “League of Legends“.

Per la seconda volta gli Imagine Dragons si trovano a collaborare con Riot Games dopo il successo di “Warriors” del 2014.

La canzone è stata eseguita agli EMAS in occasione delle due nominations ricevute dalla formazione di Las Vegas nelle categorie “Best Rock” e “Best Group”.

J.I.D è il rapper statunitense nominato ai Grammy che ha colpito per talento e personalità una delle band più influenti del pianeta.

Dan Reynolds, frontman degli Imagine Dragons, racconta il nuovo singolo:

«ENEMY parla di conflitti e al tempo stesso di riconciliazione in un mondo in cui sembra impossibile fidarsi anche di se stessi. In Arcane, le vite di due sorelle le portano su strade diverse e questa divisione rischia di distruggere un’intera città. Come la serie, la canzone vuole essere una critica sia personale sia a una società che sembra intenta a creare solo divisioni.»

Enemy degli Imagine Dragons – Testo

I wake up to the sounds of the silence that allows
For my mind to run around with my ear up to the ground
I’m searching to behold the stories that are told
When my back is to the world that was smiling when I turned

Tell you you’re the greatest
But once you turn they hate us

Oh, the misery
Everybody wants to be my enemy
Spare the sympathy
Everybody wants to be my enemy
(Look out for yourself)
My enemy (look, look, look, look)
(Look out for yourself)
But I’m ready

Your words up on the wall as you’re praying for my fall
And the laughter in the halls and the names that I’ve been called
I stack it in my mind and I’m waiting for the time
When I show you what it’s like to be words spit in a mic

Tell you you’re the greatest
But once you turn they hate us
(Huh)

Oh, the misery
Everybody wants to be my enemy
Spare the sympathy
Everybody wants to be
My enemy (look, look, look, look)
(Look out for yourself)
My enemy (look, look, look, look) (yeah)
(Look out for yourself)

Uh, look
Okay, I’m hoping that somebody pray for me
I’m praying that somebody hope for me
I’m staying where nobody ‘posed to be
P-P-Posted, being a wreck of emotions
Ready to go whenever, just let me know
The road is long, so put the pedal into the floor
The enemy on my trail, my energy unavailable
I’ma tell ‘em hasta luego
I know they wanna plot on my trot to the top
I’ve been outta shape, thinkin’ out the box, I’m an astronaut
I blasted off the planet rock to cause catastrophe

And it matters more because I had it not
Had I thought about wreaking havoc on an opposition
Kinda shocking they wanted static with precision, I’m automatic
Quarterback, I ain’t talkin’ sacking
Pack it, pack it up, I don’t panic
Batter, batter up, who the baddest?
It don’t matter ‘cause we at ya throat

Everybody wants to be my enemy
Spare the sympathy
Everybody wants to be
My enemy

Oh, the misery
Everybody wants to be my enemy
Spare the sympathy
Everybody wants to be my enemy

Pray it away, I swear
I’ll never be a saint, no way
My enemy
Pray it away, I swear
I’ll never be a saint
