Songs of the Week


9th tally for Angels & Airwaves, 1st tally for Dry Your Eyes

Dry Your Eyes - Angels & Airwaves
I'm not for this and all you ever do is stall. I am so damn sick of trying and now we are fucked 'cause we've wrecked it all. I will not save you. So, dry your eyes, get on your feet, don't pretend to cry or fix you and I. Yeah, we're here again. So, follow me in. Today is the day it ends. I can't complain, it's been good - not great. But, the time flew by. It came from behind, it was flying. It was hard to hold on every time we'd fight and thought it would end - it's exhausting. It left cracks that would grow in and out of mine and into your heart like a virus. It would crawl and would crawl and we lay there blind. It broke you and I.

After Midnight - Blink-182
I can't find the best in all of this, but I'm always looking out for you. 'Cause you're the one I miss and it's driving me crazy. Bite your lips, your word's a robbery. Do you grin inside? You're killing me. All along we talked of forever, I kind of think that we won't get better. It's the longest start, but the end's not too far away. Did you know, I'm here to stay?

Fireworks - Plain White T's

You don't really care about the trials of tomorrow.  Rather lay awake in a bed full of sorrow.  I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold.  I'll be fine, once I get it.  I'll be good.

4th tally for The Starting Line, 4th tally for Ready

Ready - The Starting Line
I've been waiting for answers, dancing in circles, making me sick.  I've been chained like a tiger to hundreds of liars all holding hands.  Gonna get ready, gonna get ready.  Now, I'm calling all the time, all I wanted was a little bit of time to try, try to get up.  I'm gonna get up.  All they wanted was a little bit of time for me to clear my head, to clear my head.

1st tally for Rancid, 1st tally for Fall Back Down

Fall Back Down - Rancid
I've had a bad year, a lot to go through.  I've been knocked out, beat down, black and blue.  She's not the one coming back for you, she's not the one coming back for you.  If I fall back down, you're gonna help me back up again.  If I fall back down, you're gonna be my friend.  If I fall back down, you're gonna help me back up again.  If I fall back down, you're gonna be my friend.  It takes disaster to learn a lesson.

6th tally for Weezer, 1st tally for Memories

You killed what was left of the good in me.  I'm tired, so let me be broken.  Look down at the mess that's in front of me.  No other words need to be spoken and I've got nobody else to blame, though I tried.  Kept all of our past mistakes held inside.  I'll live with regret for my whole life.

29th tally for Say Anything, 3rd tally for Death For My Birthday

Death For My Birthday - Say Anything

Angels & Airwaves fucking dominated my life the past few days.  Tom DeLonge's voice just has a way of making life seem less hectic, I guess.

2nd tally for Motion City Soundtrack, 2nd tally for The Future Freaks Me Out

The Future Freaks Me Out - Motion City Soundtrack
Betty, I need you. I miss you. I'm so alone without you to call up on the weekends with my cellular phone. Betty, it's so hard to relate to the whole human race. I don't know where to begin, I don't know where to begin. If we can both find a way to do the things that we say, we might not sit in our rooms and drink our daydreams away. Betty, I'm a dreamer. I'm not a vicious schemer. Oh, Betty, won't you - ah, fuck it.

La La Lie - Jack's Mannequin
Guess what, I'm done writing you songs. You'll give up your job at the bank, proving money's not fun when you're gone. So, this is the first verse, it's not very long but I'm ready to move on. Guess what, I'm done writing your book. The ending got twisted around but for all the hell that it took. The electrical wires, they'll hum in the walls in the room that I rent now without you. I've got friends who la la lie.

41st tally for A Day to Remember, 7th tally for Better Off This Way

Better Off This Way - A Day to Remember
My whole life's spent waiting, ever since I can remember been anticipating your fall and God let it be a long one. Can't let go of my grudge 'til I know you're done. When you fall I'll be the only one who looks away. When you call I'll be the first to tell you I can't stay.

53rd tally for Blink-182, 2nd tally for Reckless Abandon

Reckless Abandon - Blink-182
On and on, reckless abandon. Something's wrong, this is gonna shock them. Nothing to hold on to. We'll use this song to lead you on and break the truth with more bad news. We left a scar size - extra large.

It's not gay when it's in a 3 way. With a honey in the middle there's some leeway.

4th tally for Powerspace, 4th tally for Sleep, Everyone...

Sleep, Everyone... - Powerspace
With so little sleep, at least you'd think I'd find some peace in my dreams, in my dreams. But, my mind still winds up on the same thing. The same scene. The same themes. 'Cause it's all stuck in my subconscious, built up from every day. So, I'm stuck with these nightmares where you're gone and so far away. And when I wake up, I realize that everything's still wrong. I'm still here and you're still gone. It's not fair. 'Cause either way I spin it, separation seems so wrong. These breaks are far too long for me.

7th tally for Angels & Airwaves, 1st tally for Surrender

Surrender - Angels & Airwaves
There is a place to hide. It's in our minds, it's in the dark. It's well known that we have a fragile heart. It's deep inside, it has a sound that you can follow. You feel like you hit a wall, but you survive. And it was hard for you to swallow, I've been to that place before. In spite of luck, when you awake, a new tomorrow  I, I will not surrender.

8th tally for Angels & Airwaves, 1st tally for Distraction

Distraction - Angels & Airwaves
I'll be your distraction.

Songs of the Week

The reason I keep writing these things each week is because it's a surreal way for me to look back and judge how I've been progressing through life.  Music really does score my life and my moods.  That being said, fucking Metro Station does nothing to narrate my life.  They're just terribly catchy.  Metro Station and Bone Crusher?  I don't even.

Ali in the Jungle - The Hours
Everybody gets knocked down. How quick are you gonna get up?

39th tally for A Day to Remember, 3rd tally for Out of Time

Out of Time - A Day to Remember
Just know that it kills me when I hear anything to do with you.  You will see, oh, believe me.  I need to be right where you are.  And know that I'm leaving and you won't hear for a year from now.  And this kills me, 'cause now I think that everything's, everything's about you.  I thought this was what you wanted.  Someone who gets everything right.  I thought this was what you wanted.  Someone to put you first in their life.

40th tally for A Day to Remember, 6th tally for Better Off This Way

Better Off This Way - A Day to Remember
You want it, you got it. You've always been such a waste of time. You want it, you got it. A friend of yours is no friend of mine. You want it, you got it. When will you act your age? You want it, you got it. You're the reason things have to change.

27th tally for Say Anything, 5th tally for Peace Out

Peace Out - Say Anything
I'll be fine, sever this for all time.  I'll laugh it off when this ends.  You can just go get high with all of your dumb friends, get high with all of your dumb friends.  You were my crutch, now I've escaped your clutch.  So, how is that worm's eye view?  I have grown two broad wings and now I'm above you.

6th tally for Jack's Mannequin, 2nd tally for Dark Blue

Dark Blue - Jack's Mannequin
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room?

The Adventure - Angels And Airwaves
My dearest friends, even if your hope has burned with time, anything that's dead shall be regrown and your vicious pain - your warning sign.  You will be fine.  Hello, here I am.  And here we go, life's waiting to begin.

8th tally for Halifax, 6th tally for Better Than Sex

Better Than Sex - Halifax
Let's sleep tonight on a bed of nails. So that every other night doesn't seem so painful after all.

1st tally for Bone Crusher, 1st tally for Never Scared (Remix)

That boss as fuck epic scream he does at the beginning of the song

Hello, can I say that there's something wrong with this place? I've got time, just to waste, if you would be my new escape.

Songs of the Week

It wasn't until late Thursday night that I decided to do this post.  Really had no intentions of doing it again, but a late night in a situation that I'm all too familiar with arose.  80 GB iPod's battery being slowly drained as I listen to song after song.  I'm able to chill out and escape from everything for a little while when I lay down with my headphones on.  I've never been so good at turning off my brain, but keeping it occupied with music has always done the trick for me.

51st tally for Blink-182, 2nd tally for Even If She Falls

Even If She Falls - Blink-182
It's driving you mad, even if she falls in love.

52nd tally for Blink-182, 3rd tally for Love Is Dangerous

Love Is Dangerous - Blink-182
My heart's sinking and stuck in deadly rhythm.  I can't fake it, I can't, can't brush it off.  Love, love is dangerous.

4th tally for Jimmy Eat World, 2nd tally for Hear You Me

Hear You Me - Jimmy Eat World
What would you think of me now?  So lucky, so strong, so proud.  I never said thank you for that.  Now, I'll never have a chance.  May angels lead you in.  Hear you me, my friends.

4th tally for Set Your Goals, 3rd tally for Our Ethos: A Legacy To Pass On

Our Ethos: A Legacy To Pass On - Set Your Goals
When there's no one there to hear you, the music will listen.  And when there's no one there to tell, the words will write themselves.

9th tally for New Found Glory, 2nd tally for Your Biggest Mistake

Your Biggest Mistake - New Found Glory
Your life is a time-bomb set to explode.  You talk out your ass and everyone knows.  For once, you should listen or care what I think or I'll be gone before you can blink.

5th tally for Jack's Mannequin, 3rd tally for I'm Ready

I'm Ready - Jack's Mannequin
My life has become a boring pop song and everyone is singing along.

14th tally for Childish Gambino, 4th tally for Not Going Back

Not Going Back - Childish Gambino
I refuse to go back to not liking who I was.

5th tally for Good Charlotte, 1st tally for Thank You Mom

Thank You Mom - Good Charlotte
Always and forever.

3rd tally for Coldplay, 2nd tally for Fix You

Fix You - Coldplay
When you try your best but you don't succeed. When you get what you want but not what you need. When you feel so tired but you can't sleep. Stuck in reverse. And the tears come streaming down your face. When you lose something you can't replace. When you love someone but it goes to waste. Could it be worse? Lights will guide you home and ignite your bones. And I will try to fix you.

6th tally for Four Year Strong, 4th tally for Fairweather Fan

Fairweather Fan - Four Year Strong
You're becoming what I hated, close-minded and jaded about what isn't yours.  My life, my hopes, my dreams. Looking out for me 'cause I know it's only a matter of time before my luck runs out. 'Cause I know it's only a matter of luck before my time runs out. So, I'll live each day like it's my last.
