Six Degrees of Separation

You’ve read the books, you’ve watched the shows, what’s the best way no one knows. Meditate, get hypnotized, anything to take from your mind but it won’t go. You’re doing all these things out of desperation. You’re going through six degrees of separation.” –The Script, Six Degrees of Separation

The musical heroes for all men who can’t be moved, The Script, released their third studio album back on September 7th, 2012. Album ketiga dari band asal Irlandia ini diberi judul “#3”, dengan sebuah lagu bertajuk “Six Degrees of Separation” sebagai single kedua dari album ini. Lagu ini dirilis sebagai single pada tanggal 25 November 2012. Meskipun lagu ini tidak meraih kesuksesan komersial yang memuaskan, “Six Degrees of Separation” adalah lagu dari album ketiga The Script yang bertemakan perpisahan dan tidak-dapat-move-on-dari-masa-lalu, yang mana menjadi karakter dari lagu-lagu mereka.
“Six Degrees of Separation” is a song about post-breakup syndrome. It depicts that a broken hearted person gets through six degrees of separation. First, being drowned in sadness and desperation. Second, trying everything to get rid of that person from your mind, even things that might kill yourself, such as smoking and drinking. “You hit the drink, you take a toke, watch the past go up in smoke. Fake a smile, lie and say that, you’re better now than ever, and your life’s okay when it’s not. You’re doing all these things out of desperation. You’re going through six degrees of separation.” Third, realizing that everything you’ve tried is no used. Fourth, thinking that everything is going to be just fine.

“You tell your friends, strangers too, anyone who’ll throw an arm around you. Tarot cards, gems and stones, believing all that shit is gonna heal your soul, well it’s not. No, you’re only doing things out of desperation. No, you’re going through six degrees of separation.” Fifth, knowing that the person is already moved on while you’re still at the same exact place. “No, there’s no starting over, without finding closure. You’d take them back, no hesitation. That’s when you know you’ve reached the sixth degree of separation.” Sixth, finally understand that you’re already broken, and no one’s going to fix that except yourself. “No, there ain’t no help, it’s every man for himself.”
Sebuah music video (MV) untuk lagu “Six Degrees of Separation” dirilis pada tanggal 5 November 2012 di akun Youtube resmi milik The Script. “Six Degrees of Separation” diciptakan oleh Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan, Steve Kipner, dan Andrew Frampton. Even though this song wasn’t obtain a commercial success and positive critical reviews, I found this song enjoyable, just like their other hits such as “Nothing” and “Dead Man Walking”. Although it’s still not as good as “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” and “Breakeven”, it’s worth-hearing and it’s very ‘The Script’.

First, you think the worst is a broken heart. What’s gonna kill you is the second part. And the third, is when your world splits down the middle. And fourth, you’re gonna think that you fixed yourself. Fifth, you see them out with someone else. And the sixth, is when you admit you may have fucked up a little.” –The Script, Six Degrees of Separation



“You’ve read the books, you’ve watched the shows, what’s the best way no one knows
Meditate, get hypnotized, anything to take from your mind but it won’t go
You’re doing all these things out of desperation
You’re going through six degrees of separation

You hit the drink, you take a toke, watch the past go up in smoke
Fake a smile, lie and say that, you’re better now than ever, and your life’s okay when it’s not
No, you’re doing all these things out of desperation
You’re going through six degrees of separation

First, you think the worst is a broken heart
What’s gonna kill you is the second part
And the third, is when your world splits down the middle
And fourth, you’re gonna think that you fixed yourself
Fifth, you see them out with someone else
And the sixth, is when you admit you may have fucked up a little

No there ain’t no help, it’s every man for himself

You tell your friends, strangers too, anyone who’ll throw an arm around you
Tarot cards, gems and stones, believing all that shit is gonna heal your soul, well it’s not
No, you’re only doing things out of desperation
No, you’re going through six degrees of separation

No, there’s no starting over, without finding closure
You’d take them back, no hesitation
That’s when you know you’ve reached the sixth degree of separation

No, no, there ain’t no help, it’s every man for himself
You’re going through six degrees of separation
No, no, there ain’t no help, it’s every man for himself”
