#SongLyricSunday ♫ “You Fight Me” – Breaking Benjamin

BreakingBenjamin2

Make sure to stop by Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me, to join in the music fun or to check out all of the other song picks for this week – just click the theme link below!

This week’s theme is: No

Simple. Monosyllabic. Not so easy to find a song everyone else isn’t already going to post. So, I steered away from the obvious choices like Bob Marley or the songs which have already been posted for other themes, like “Ain’t No Sunshine” and dove into my Breaking Benjamin collection for this grossly underrated track off their Phobia album. This song hits on all my high notes combining Ben’s sexy grrr-ness, a touch of ballad, a lot of rock and of course, the piano…I love me some piano in any song, no matter the genre. Enjoy!

You fight me
Flat on my lonely face I fell
Finding in the end I’ll live well
In the light of the life that I have found
It’s coming down
(down)

I don’t know what isn’t real
But it’s easy to beat me
(Suck it up)
Life is sink or swim
Love is blinding
No surviving

I don’t know what I want to be yet
But I can show that I need to see this
No time for lies and empty fights
I’m on your side

Can’t we live a life of peace and happiness?
I don’t think so

No denying I’m scared to lose the things I love
I’m in control

This is how
This is how it’s gonna end
This is how
This is how it’s gonna end
End

Everyone is waiting here
For everyone
Leave me alone

This is how
This is how it’s gonna end
This is how
This is how it’s gonna end
This is how
This is how it’s gonna end

(NO)

This is how
This is how it’s gonna end
End

#RocktoberMusicFest ♪ “Warm Machine” – Bush

I was in my early teens when Grunge took over the music industry. Local bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam (yeah, they’re from my neck of the woods) lit up the airwaves and inspired countless bands to follow. Even so, the genre of grunge just didn’t have the power to suck me in to the point of spending all my allowance on flannels the way it did for everyone else. Then, there was Bush. When Gavin Rossdale started filling my eardrums with his sexy, gritty voice, teaching me how to breathe properly, only to take my breath away with every other song, I declared him my future ex-husband. Of course, he’s still my first future ex-husband of choice, but more have been added to the list, so I’m over it…a little. Maybe.

Anyway, I know I’ve already used this song in a previous post for a different music event, but hopefully it’s been long enough that no one quite remembers. And I love SOOOOOOOOOOO many different Bush songs, I should be able to pick one I’ve never posted about before. Honestly, I think I have Gavin Rossdale songs most people have never even heard of, so why do I keep choosing this song over every other track in my extensive collection???

That damn guitar. It just gets me every freaking time…

Breath

by Breaking Benjamin

I see nothing in your eyes, and the more I see the less I like.
Is it over yet, in my head?

I know nothing of your kind, and I won’t reveal your evil mind.
Is it over yet? I can’t win.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what’s left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I’m going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
’cause I will be the death of you.

This will be all over soon.
Pour salt into the open wound.

Is it over yet? Let me in.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what’s left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I’m going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
’cause I will be the death of you.

[Bridge]
I’m waiting, I’m praying, realize, start hiding.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
’cause I will be the death of you.

Some old school BB for y’all. Not the same band members anymore, but still one of my favorite videos. Ben can pull off a perfectly evil face when he wants to. 😛

Breakdown

by Seether

The sun is gone and the flowers rot
Words are spaces between us
And I should’ve been drown in the rivers I’ve found of token lost
And I should’ve been down when you made me insecure

So break me down if it makes you feel right
And hate me now if it keeps you alright
You can break me down if it takes all your might
’cause I’m so much more than meets the eye

And I’m the one you can never trust
’cause wounds are ways to reveal us
And yeah I could have tried and devoted my life to both of us
But what a waste of my time when the world we have is yours

So break me down if it makes you feel right
And hate me now if it keeps you alright
You can break me down if it takes all your might
’cause I’m so much more than all your lies

Hate me, break me down
(So break me down)
Down
(So break me down)
So break me down if it makes you feel right
And hate me now if it keeps you alright
You can break me down if it takes all your might
’cause I’m so much more than meets the eye

Not exactly their best video, but still one of my favorite songs. Every few years, they put out a hit single that really nabs me and this was definitely one of them. Plus, they’re awesome in concert. 😀

Already a Seether fan? What was the first song you ever heard by them? You can find mine HERE. Another great self-reflecting song by them is Fine Again. Check it out, the video is a lot more inspired, at least!
