“Carpe diem baby” de Metallica

És curiós com un grup tan conegut com Metallica pot introduir tòpics literaris en les seves cançons, aquí us en deixo un exemple ara que estudiem Horaci a classe de llatí.

Hit dirt, shake tree
Split sky, part sea
Strip smile, lose cool
Bleed the day and break the rule
Live to win, dare to fail
Eat the dirt and bite the nail

Then make me miss you
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don’t feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby

Draw lead, piss wine
Sink teeth, all mine
Stoke fire, break neck
Suffer through this, cheat on death
Hug the curve, lose the time
Tear the map and shoot the sign

Then make me miss you
Oh yeah
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don’t feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby

Yeah suck it!!!

Live win, dare fail
Eat dirt, bite the nail
Strip smile, lose cool
Bleed the day and break the rule
Hug the curve, loose the time
Tear the map and shoot the sign

Then make me miss you
Come on, come on
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don’t feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day

Come make me miss you

Come carpe diem baby

Come carpe diem baby

 

Què vol dir Carpe diem? Sabríeu trobar el llatinisme Carpe diem en una altra cançó? Com l’utilitza Metallica?
