Blood

by: In This Moment

I hate you for the sacrifices you made for me
I hate you for every time you ever bled for me
I hate you for the way you smile when you look at me
I hate you for never taking control of me

I hate you for always saving me from myself
I hate you for always choosing me and not someone else
I hate you for always pulling me back from the edge
I hate you for every kind word you ever said

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
Shut your dirty, dirty mouth
I’m not that easy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
I’m a dirty, dirty girl
I want it filthy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
Shut your dirty, dirty mouth
I’m not that easy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
I’m a dirty, dirty girl
I want it filthy

I love you for everything you ever took from me
I love the way you dominate and you violate me
I love you for every time you gave up on me
I love you for the way you look when you lie to me

I love you for never believing in what I say
I love you for never once giving me my way
I love you for never delivering me from pain
I love you for always driving me insane

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
Shut your dirty, dirty mouth
I’m not that easy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
I’m a dirty, dirty girl
I want it filthy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
Shut your dirty, dirty mouth
I’m not that easy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
I’m a dirty, dirty girl
I want it filthy

I hate you, I hate you, I love…

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
Shut your dirty, dirty mouth
I’m not that easy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
I’m a dirty, dirty girl
I want it filthy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
Shut your dirty, dirty mouth
I’m not that easy

Blood, blood, blood
Pump mud through my veins
I’m a dirty, dirty girl
I want it filthy

I hate you for every time you ever bled for me

It’s almost time for Avarice Unleashed’s Cover Reveal so I had to grab a song from my Hell on Earth inspired library. I love In This Moment, and Maria Brink is an amazing singer (who’s surprisingly soft spoken). She’s one of the few female rockers who’s gained equal notoriety in Scream-O, a male dominated music genre. If you’re not into her heavier sound, she has older stuff that is milder and if you hear her sing live, you’ll be hooked. 😉

I Wish I Stayed

by: Ellie Goulding

Why can’t we speak another language
One we all agree on?
Why when many look outside, they see houses
Instead of the fields they grew from?
We are constantly uprooted from them
Making us tiresome and fearful
Can you get up right now and
And have a free-fall?

‘Cause you can fall if you want to
It’s just a matter of how far
You’ve treasured your hometown
But you’ve forgotten where you are
And it will stay with you ’til your mind’s been found
And it has been found wondering around

With that skipping rope, a trampoline
The crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn’t give up hope
Ya, it’s the simple ways of getting paid
The carelessness of running away
No, wish I stayed
I wish I stayed

Patterns all arranged in my background
These pillars and posts keeping this country of war
Letters were always sent with no addresses
So that people can’t discover
They were always undercover
Why do I always draw triangles
Instead of the words that this paper so deserves?

‘Cause you see,
I don’t own my clothes but I own my mind
And it’s not what you’ve lost
But it’s what you find

I don’t own my clothes, but I own my mind
And it’s not what you’ve lost
But, it’s what you find

You found that skipping rope, a trampoline
The crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn’t give up hope
Ya, it’s the simple ways of getting paid
The carelessness of running away
No, wish I stayed
I wish I stayed.

‘Cause you can fall if you want to
It’s just a matter of how far
You’ve treasured your hometown
You’ve forgotten where you are
And it will stay with you ’til your mind’s been found
And it has been found wondering around

With that skipping rope, a trampoline
The crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn’t give up hope
Ya, it’s the simple ways of getting paid
The carelessness of running away
No, I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed

I’ve been a big fan of Ellie since first hearing her hit single “Lights” on the radio. I know she’s gained massive popularity since then, but these ‘live’ and ‘acoustic’ versions of hers have always been my absolute faves. She’s one talented singer/songwriter – and she used to record-or at least edit-her own albums in her apartment, so have to give her #IndieLoves for that, too!

p.s. I had to look this up because I was curious (fine, American), so for all others who are scratching their heads: “crafty smoke” or rather just ‘crafty’ is from an Old English word that means ‘strong’ or ‘powerful’ according to dictionary.com – but, according to Urbandictionary.com, it can also be part of a slang term that means to sneak away for a cigarette… I wonder which one Ellie was alluding to here? 😀 (psst, I made you learn something, ha-ha!)

Bullet In My Hand

by: Redlight King

I’ve got a fast life and
A slow cuttin’ knife
I’ve been drinkin’ outta poisoned well
No home and a bag of bones
And nothin’ else left to sell
I know why I’m in this hell
I just don’t wanna believe
Past that line you just can’t tell
But right now

There’s someone lookin’ out for me

I came out of the darkness
With a bullet in my hand
I’ve got one more shot at livin’
I’m lucky that I can

Cause I got a little roughed up
Yeah I really got fucked up
I came out of the darkness
With a bullet in my hand

I got a cold stare, wound still there
But there ain’t much left to bleed
A short fuse that I still use
I’m my own worst enemy
I stare at the faces I once knew lined up just to bury me
There’s a long black car that’s waitin’ to leave
But right now

There’s someone looking out for me

I came out of the darkness
With a bullet in my hand
I got one more shot at livin’
I’m lucky that I can

Cause I got a little roughed up
Yeah I really got fucked up
I came out of the darkness
With a bullet in my hand

Cause I got a little roughed up
With a bullet in my hand
Yeah I really got fucked up
With a bullet in my hand

Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?
I can see the light

I can see the light
There’s someone looking out for me

I came out of the darkness
With a bullet in my hand
I got one more shot at livin’
I’m lucky that I can

Cause I got a little roughed up
Yeah I really got fucked up
I came out of the darkness
With a bullet in my hand

This was the hit single that led to my discovery of Redlight King, a band out of Hamilton, Ontario – but I love almost every song they put out. Their debut album is mostly a redemptive-inspiration collection about beating inner demons and finding the light again. With some gear head influence thrown in, of course. The video kicks a$$, and Kaz is very easy to drool over…er, look at. 😉

Here’s a post I did awhile back for Father’s Day, highlighting a song he wrote in honor of his dad. Same album, different kind of sound, both awesome.

Warm Machine

by: Bush

I memorize the basics
Making strange faces
Tread slowly for I know
There’s a thousand miles to go
Without blinking

I gravitate spacewards
Find a home for my head
From my basement
No darkness ever left

This is the night
There’s the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine
Feel warm

Some days are playful
I’m making play faces
But we will not let it through
The darkness or the sense
Of being born to loose

This is the night
This is the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine

(omitted from video)
This is the life
This is the ground
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine

If we never know we can only feel
I’ll take the help
I’ll take a slice
Warm alright now
To feel all right

Ay!

(omitted from video)
I memorize the basics, basics, basics

This is the night
This is the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine

Such a warm machine
Such a warm machine
Machine, machine, machine

*Shivers* Oooh that guitar rift puts me in my happy place every time! For sure, this song is more about the guitar for me than the words Now, here’s your challenge: Say “Warm Machine” without blending the 2 M’s into one and pronouncing it “War Machine”… hahaha, good luck! 😉

Feel Good Friday

I was recently discussing a homework assignment with one of my best friends for her English class. The topic was something along the lines of a meaningful memory. Of course, she’s like Spotify without the commercials–everything is a song–so it was no surprise she chose ♫♪ Music ♪♫ for her essay.

While we were hashing old times where certain songs became significant in our lives, I found myself getting lost down memory lane. There are SO many songs! So many moments in our lives that have a particular background melody that, even when we hear it today, can trigger heartwarming fondness, wistful what-if’s, or rolling laughter.

I’m completely over my head cold-finally-and feel really great, and I want to share some of that Feel Good energy with all my lovely blogging friends. This was the first song I used to plug into the jukebox every night after closing down the bar (as a bartender, not a lush!) to help energize me for the cleaning tasks ahead. I loved that 2-3 a.m. hour when I had the music all to myself and room enough to shake my ass while vacuuming up popcorn and peanut shells! 😀

Enjoy!

HAPPY FRIDAY ALL! Hope you have a great weekend!

#MusicMonday on a Tuesday

 

Angel Eyes

by New Years Day ft. Chris Motionless (of Motionless In White)

There’s something about you, I cannot explain
I just want to know you
I just wanna know your name
It’s not what you said,
Not the way you said it
I’m under your spell and I don’t regret it

Take my breath,
Baby reach inside my chest,
You can have whatever’s left,
Now baby I’m possessed

Don’t you try to hide with those angel eyes
If you let me inside, I won’t hold back this time
Such a deep disguise; devil’s right inside
More than paralyzed, oh it’s the chase you like

There’s a darkness,
I can feel it in your touch
I should get away, get away
I want you way too much

Take my breath,
Baby reach inside my chest,
You can have whatever’s left,
Now baby I’m possessed

Don’t you try to hide with those angel eyes
If you let me inside, I won’t hold back this time
Such a deep disguise, devil’s right inside
More than paralyzed, Oh it’s the chase you like

I don’t care how many times it takes to get through to you,
It’s a force that not even God can stop,
You’re fucking mine!

You’ve got this power over me
And there’s no way to fight it
There’s no way!
I can’t help but gravitate towards you,
This is a force I can’t defeat

Take my breath
You can reach inside my chest

Don’t you try to hide with those angel eyes
If you let me inside, I wont hold back this time
Such a deep disguise, devil’s right inside
More than paralyzed
Watch out the devil’s inside

I meant to post this yesterday – the name of the band “New Years Day” was just too fitting, but I was away from my laptop so it’s a day late. And yes, the song’s another inspiration from my Hell on Earth series. Enjoy!
