Cruising around town with the sun roof open, music blaring. Had fun with these two Cool






I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Some of my favorite music, not for cruising around in a convertible, but rather hitting the back road slaloms hard and fast on my motorcycle. Big Grin

I'm listening to a little more serious/depressing/sobering stuff...

Siren's Song by Parkway Drive




This song is about a girl dying of an overdose ["dead by first light"].
Lyrics:
Virtue is lost
Beyond this sleek veneer
Beneath the neon existence
Her face is grey, and everything she longs for turns to black
The chemicals bring little vindication and white lines lace every vein,
Does she realise what she has become?
But she’s not waking and she’s still failing
But she’s not waking
She’s still failing
Follow the sirens’ song to face this empty cycle
Searching the darkest nights
Searching the silence
And does it make you sick?
“Can you hear me, is she conscious?”
Does it make you feel beautiful?
Bloodshed under the streetlight
And does it make you sick?
“Oh god we’ve got a bleeder here”
Does it make you beautiful?
Heartbreak under the streetlight
She’s lost again
Adrenalin strains corrupted arteries
Virtue is lost
Beyond this sleek veneer
Beneath the neon existence 
Her face is grey, and everything she longs for is pulling away
Follow the Sirens’ song to face this empty cycle
Searching the darkest nights
Searching the silence
Dead by first light
They can’t wipe the blood from her eyes
Dead by first light

Build Upon the Sand by Stick to Your Guns




This song is about all those kids who go on shooting sprees because of bullying/abuse. I heard the lead singer's cousin was one of those shooters, but I'm not sure ["Let's all watch while the hammer falls"].
Lyrics:
Day in and day out 
Shit on and kicked in 
The world's garbage you left sifting 
Mind like a wrath flame and flood 
Done talking, no one's listening 

They pushed me, they pushed me 
I'll rip this place at the seams 
They did this, not me 
Inflicted with this disease 
I'm screaming, God help me 
I scream as loud as I can 
This is another life 
Built upon the sand 

You've hit bottom and you're still sinking 
So small and you're still shrinking 
What can you do 
You've gone from alone to completely see through 

Let's all watch while the hammer falls 

They pushed me, they pushed me 
I'll rip this place at the seams 
They did this, not me 
Inflicted with this disease 
I'm screaming, God help me 
I scream as loud as I can 
This is another life 
Built upon the sand 

I understand you
I understand you
I understand you
I understand you
I understand you
I understand you

I understand
I understand you
I understand
I understand you
I understand
I understand you
I understand
I understand
You

Beyond the Sun by Stick to Your Guns




This song is about spousal abuse [the lyrics speak for themselves].
Lyrics:
She thinks, "Another day I'm left to drag my broken soul 
Through the streets, into work and school, then back home"
Not a man in her life that makes her feel whole
Because it's the men in her life that filled her with those holes.
"What have I done to deserve this?"
To face a raising fist that screams, "You think I like this bitch?!"
Don't you worry my darling, mommy just tripped
She can feel her sanity starting to slip
So she dreams, if I could just go...

Beyond the sun
Where I can't feel pain
Where I could just fade away
Beyond the sun, where no one lives but me
Help me

Entangled in a web of complete misery
Her cries are stifled by a fear of what he might do to the kids
"If i just stick it out this might end soon"
"This is all my fault,
If I had just done what he said I could have avoided this all"
And still she dreams, if I could just go...

Beyond the sun
Where I can't feel pain
Where I could just fade away
Beyond the sun, where no one lives but me
Help me

How can we let this be?
Our sister and mothers are dying
How can we let this be?
Our mother are dying
How can we let this be?


...because I know a girl who died of an overdose, I know two kids who killed themselves from bullying, I went to the same high school as Christopher Dorner and know his family, and I know victims of spousal abuse.

Although these songs are sad, I do listen to them and I'm glad they were produced because they raise awareness. And who knows, maybe it helped someone?

Everyday is judgement day. Use your judgement, use reason.
