On Wednesday, Mark Hoppus, bassist of the San Diego punk trio, Blink-182, posted what appears to be the first sneak preview of lyrics for their upcoming album.
On his Facebook and Twiter accounts, Hoppus posted a picture of what appears to be lyrics for an upcoming song. The words read:
Burning lights on the street I’m fight fighting the gravity
When I’m beat and defeated They’ll take you away from me
Dead and lost in a dream This is the last of me
I’m always fighting the gravity
After a band disagreement, the band went through a five-year hiatus. During the hiatus, Hoppus and Travis Barker (drummer) left to form a side project entitled +44. Tom Delonge (guitarist) formed his own band Angels and Airwaves, which turned into what is now his second band.
After not speaking for several years, it took a plane crash that severely injured Barker to get the three in a room again together. The three were able to talk and rekindle their long-term friendship and, shortly thereafter, the band announced at the Grammy’s that they would be reuniting. After an American and European tour, they have left their fans hungry for a new album to follow up their 2003 self-titled release.
Although not officially stated as lyrics for an upcoming Blink song, one can only assume these four sentences scribbled down are just that. Now speculation comes into play if they are actually Blink lyrics and not just for one another possible side project. Since Barker is currently tied up in his solo album and planning a summer tour and since Delonge is planning the same with Angels and Airwaves to Europe, many fans question the identity of what these lyrics are for.
The band has promised to release an album by this summer, so if these are Blink lyrics, we all have got ourselves one step closer to the promised “best album” by the band.
