i feel: amused


Hoppus mostly remained mum on the subject until (+44)'s debut album "When Your Heart Stops Beating" was released. He let the songs "No, It Isn't" and "Lycanthrope" do the talking for him. (For those keeping track, a lycanthrope is a bloodthirsty werewolf or spirit.) 

"It was actually good, because" [those songs] were about the end of Blink-182," Hoppus said. "I needed to get it out there because I didn't really talk about it in the press. I really didn't talk about it with anybody. When it came time to put it into a song, it went right into music. It was a good cathartic thing to do. That's for sure," Hoppus said.


I wake up at the end of a long, dark, lonely year
It's bringing out the worst in me
I hear your voice start breaking in fear
When the lights go down

And I still feel you looking over my shoulder
Your sinking guilt and approaching nightmare
And I know none of us will survive
Because I know everything


And my dear I need you to move a little faster
This second counts as the rest of your life
Your final word and an itchy finger
And then it's taken away

And we'll be beaten down without mercy or meaning
I turn my face to a careless skyline
I'm searching hard for a sign from heaven
But they've forgotten me here

You can just stop talking, I get it
I hear your silence loud and clear
I know it's barely a thought but it'll see us through
I'm only setting you free so just let it happen
Just let it happen, no need to fear
Yeah you can just stop talking, I get it

Sex, f*ck, and fluorescent lighting
A hollow point on an angry bullet
We're on the teeth of a crocodile
We're in the mouth of the gun

And sometimes at night I feel I'm just a broken vessel
An instrument with a darker purpose
I'm at the throat of the young and the helpless
Because they've got nothing to say

to quote Tom; What dude? WHAT?

The whole song is... oajshhse, but those bold lines. I can't really figure out something good to say here

oh and also, I understand why Mark wouldn't want to talk about THAT in the press... I bet that's what he means, he just speak a little bit in codes, can't give it all away without people lurking right? I mean the +44 fans know that the song is... very suggestive, but the media doesn't, right? Okay, I don't know what I want to say so I'll just... go back to trying to shut my mouth.

I'm with you to 120 % procent on this! I think a lot of both +44 and Ava's songs are worth a second interprenting *nods*

It's just so obvious. Why would he write a song like this that reflects Blink/Tom/that whole situiation so nice and then pretend that it's just something that popped up in his brain and then wrote a song about it. Because come on, those two records (Ava and +44) has GOT to be about the whole split thing. A lot of it anyways. Because that's not something you just get over that fast. I know sure as hell that I wouldn't anyways.
