Epic, extrait de l’album The Real Thing sorti en 1990, est l’oeuvre de Mike Patton: chant, Mike Bordin: batterie, percussions, Roddy Bottum: claviers, Bill Gould: basse, Jim Martin: guitare, plus connus ensemble sous le nom du mythique combo Faith No More. En ces temps d’uniformisation musicale et de fake revival grunge, il est gouleyant de réécouter, de revoir, de relire les paroles de ce titre aussi foutraque que brillant.

Faith No More – Epic (Official Music Video)

Can you feel it, see it, hear it today?
If you can’t, then it doesn’t matter anyway
You will never understand it ’cause it happens too fast
And it feels so good, it’s like walking on glass
It’s so cool, it’s so hip, it’s alright
It’s so groovy, it’s outta sight
You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet
But it makes no difference ’cause it knocks you off your feet
You want it all but you can’t have it
It’s cryin’, bleedin’, lying on the floor
So you lay down on it and you do it some more
You’ve got to share it, so you dare it
Then you bare it and you tear it
You want it all but you can’t have it
It’s in your face but you can’t grab it
It’s alive, afraid, a lie, a sin
It’s magic, it’s tragic, it’s a loss, it’s a win
It’s dark, it’s moist, it’s a bitter pain
It’s sad it happened and it’s a shame
You want it all but you can’t have it
It’s in your face but you can’t grab it
What is it?
It’s it
What is it?
It’s it
What is it?
It’s it
What is it?
It’s it
What is it?

You want it all but you can’t have it
It’s in your face but you can’t grab it
It’s it
What is it?
It’s it
What is it?
It’s it
What is it?
It’s it
What is it?
It’s it
