#SongLyricSunday | “Reincarnate” – Motionless In White

Happy Spooktacular Sunday, ya’ll! πŸ˜€ It’s #SLS time again, so make sure you follow the theme link below to Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me, to check out today’s picks!

This week’s theme is: Lean | Sit | Stand

In the spirit of the upcoming All Hallow’s Eve, my pick this week was just as much for the lyrics as for the video. It’s 100% Halloween cinema-worthy. Plus, I just really like keeping everyone on their toes – Which genre will she pick this week? πŸ˜€ Released in 2014, “Reincarnate” is the title song of MIW’s album by the same name – the 3rd and final record under their original label, Fearless Records. Lead Singer, Chris Motionless, was quoted in an interview stating that they knew the album would be the one to make or break their band, so they decided to say “f**k it” and do it exactly the way they wanted to, not for anyone else. Turns out, that approach really paid off, as they’ve released 5 albums since and seem to gain more popularity with each new hit release.

Personally, Motionless In White is my favorite male screamo-gothic-metal band and those who follow me on Instagram and Twitter already know that I have a major crush on their lead guitarist, Ryan Sitkowski…

…and that he’s the inspiration behind the main antagonistic anti-hero/hero in my psychological romance WIP. But all that great reason aside, I like MIW mostly because their lyrics, while often brutally honest to the point of cynical about the world/society/people, are pretty spot on. They’re the perfect band to get me in the right mood when I need to tap into some raw, angry, defiant, or confrontational energy for one of my characters or scenes. While it would never stop me from listening to them, I’m glad Chris Motionless has come into more of his own look now, rather than this Marilyn Manson version. Enjoy!

Content Warning: Explicit language in parts. (Especially, in the funniest line of the whole song)

Get up
You pull the trigger just for fun
Forgetting I’m a loaded gun
So hate me for the things I’ve done
And not for what I’ve now become
I want this
I need this
I love it
Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace
And there is nothing left to take
Leaving the past to the grave
So we can reincarnate
You sit upon your throne of filth
Condemning what you haven’t built
So hate me cause you’re standing still
Watching while I shoot to kill
I live this
I breathe this
You crave it
Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace
And there is nothing left to take
Leaving the past to the grave
So we can reincarnate
There’s one thing you forget
You can’t make me play dead
I’ve swallowed your bullshit
No respect
You make me fucking sick
Give me a reason
I won’t bite my tongue
I am not afraid spineless
A dominion of nothing is all you will reign
You laugh but what did you create?
Bitch you give a fucking aspirin a headache
Through hell
From grace
There’s nothing left
Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace
There’s nothing left for you to take
Driving the nail through my mistakes
So we can reincarnate
When we lie down, we’re sore and sick
We fall down, sink or swim
The remedy for who we are
And what lies beneath

    1. LOL Thank you, it’s better to be weird than boring, I always say – and yes, I think you’ve already embraced your inner weird! 😝

      That’s the funniest line in the whole song, it cracks me up when I hear it. I didn’t even realize that’s what he was saying until my oldest pointed it out, LOL

      Gotta love our kids! 😝 Thanks, Fle! Happy to give you a jump start on your morning hehehehe. πŸ˜‰

  3. Perfect darkness for the upcoming holiday. I can see where you might use it to tune in to rage for scenes in your book!

    1. Thanks, Jade, it really is a good one for mood setting. I have a few that are my go-to, but this one’s probably the most aggressive.

      1. You’re welcome. That guitarist looks like a vampire to me (I went out to google to see him). Is your book about vampires?

      2. Not this one, no. The character he inspires is a serial killer but kind of in a vigilante way, rather than just a psycho lol he only targets major criminals, however it’s for vengeance and not because he thinks it’s bettering the world any. I mainly borrowed his looks for the character, the hairstyle and extensive tattoos, for all I know Ryan could be a total sweetheart lol I hope he doesn’t mind what I’ve turned him into

      3. When it’s finished you should send him a copy. Maybe he will tell you what he thinks about it. (can’t hurt to try!)

      4. Oh no, I’d never do that lol. Like I said the character’s only influenced by his looks and that happens sometimes, but I couldn’t imagine sending a book to a celebrity each time it did
