Death From Above
Canzone:

Death From Above

Cantante:  Thrice
Descrizione:

This song was first played publicly on the BBC Radio 1 program, Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter, on May 22, 2016.

The song is written from the perspective of a U.S. military drone operator see the Vagrant Records Thrice bio in May 2016 and almost certainly inspired by the accounts of Brandon Bryant, Cian Westmoreland, Stephen Lewis, Michael Haas and other former drone operators. Bryant, for example, was a U.S. military drone operator for four years, who went public with his ethical and moral questions about his role, which included seeing a child run into a compound seconds before his missile hit it.

Among other things, the song addresses the effects of long-distance drone strikes on the populations they hit, the collateral damage of innocents, the feelings of executing kill orders, the motives of the leaders who order such long distance strikes, and the traumatic effects that this destruction has on those entrusted to carry out the orders of their superiors.

The themes of this song are similar to those in the Thrice songs, “The Sky Is Falling” and “The Flame Deluge” on previous albums, and several other tracks on To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere.

Combined with the subject matter and heavy choruses, the odd time signature gives this song an even more dramatic feel. The verses are in ¾ while the chorus is based around three counts of 3 and one of 2.

Testi:

Verse 1
I always thought, I always thought, that there was something different, setting us apart
That I was led, that I was led by men with sober minds and sympathetic hearts
I swore an oath, swore an oath, but never knew just what it was to take a life
I play at God, play at God across such distances and from so great a height

Chorus
But I am never sure who I am killing
How many innocents were in the building?
I drop death out of the
No longer human beings, no longer people
Just targets on a screen, none of it's real
I drop death out of the sky... Tell me why

Verse 2
One day they sent, one day they sent me to the chaplain when I said I can't go on
All he said, all he said was just to shut my mouth and do the "will of God"

Chorus
But I am never sure who I am killing
How many innocents were in the building?
I drop death out of the
No longer human beings, no longer people
Just targets on a screen, none of it's real
I drop death out of the sky... Tell me why?

Bridge
Tell me why?
"To make us safe," so it would seem
But we shoot further than we dream
Can’t we see? We only justify
Someone’s resolve to rise against
And to avenge the innocent
And defend the ones that still survive
I'm still asking "why?"

Album:

To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere

Descrizione:

The 8th studio album (9th if you count The Alchemy Index Vol. I & II as separate from Vol. III & IV) from Irvine, California rock band, Thrice. This is their first album since their hiatus that began in 2012.

Living in different parts of the country at the time, the band wrote songs together by sharing song-part recordings via an online dropbox, later working with producer Eric Palmquist to refine and record the final product. It includes songs from multiple flavors of hard rock, grunge, southern rock, and lighter melodic rock. Lyrical themes include political commentaries on the United States in the years leading up to the album’s release, philosophical and spiritual musings, and introspective reflection.

The name of the album is based on a quote by Seneca the Younger, known also simply as Seneca (the name of a track on the album). He was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and humorist of the Silver Age of Latin literature who lived until AD 65.
