Song of the Day: Raining Blood by Slayer

Slayer seasons in the abyss

Raining Blood

Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
Death will be their acquittance

The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me, the sky’s crimson tears
Abolish the rules made of stone

Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above

Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away

Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood!

Song of the Day: It Haunts Me by Royal Bliss

Royal Bliss

It Haunts Me

Hey, mister, go get all your feelings
Yeah, they come from the factory
Stay within no hither, turn the pages
As they fall from the magazine

Some people don’t get it out of road
With all your philosophies
Time ain’t a bottle spin, black and white
For everyone in the world to see

Your mind is far away
I see your ghost, it haunts me

So tired of the separation, [?]
Yeah, they call in anxiety
Take it to the heart, ’til you feel it grow
And then you’re back for my apathy
You’d stand me if you could, baby
I can tell me by the stares that you turn on me

I love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me

I love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me
I love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me
I will love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me
It haunts me, it haunts me, it haunts me, it haunts me, it haunts me

Song of the Day: When Doves Cry by Prince and the Revolution

Prince with rain

When Doves Cry

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding (Maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold (Ya know he’s too bold)
Maybe you’re just like my mother (Maybe you’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (She’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (Why do we scream, why)
This is what it sounds like

When doves cry
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)

Don’t cry (Don’t Cry)

When doves cry
When doves cry
When doves cry

When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry, doves cry
Don’t cry
Darling don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t don’t cry

Imperfection

The more you try to fight it
The more you try to hide it
The more infected, rejected, you feel alone inside it
You know you can’t deny it
The world’s a little more fucked up everyday

I’m gonna save you from it
Together we’ll outrun it
Just don’t get into the fear
So many things I would’ve told you
If I knew that I was never gonna see you again

I wanna lift you up into the light that you deserve
I wanna take your pain into myself so you won’t hurt

Don’t you dare surrender
Don’t leave me here without you
Cause I would never
Replace your perfect imperfection

The way you look us over
Your counterfeit composure
Pushing again and again and sinking lower and lower
The world is on its shoulders
Do you really know the weight of the words you say?

You want a little of it
You just can’t let go of it
You’ve got an ego to feed
Too late to rise above it
Don’t look now but the little girl’s got a grenade

I’m gonna lift you up into the light you deserve
I’m gonna take you down to the real world so you can watch it burn

Don’t you dare surrender
Don’t leave me here without you
Cause I would never
Replace your perfect imperfection

We stand undefined
Can’t be drawn with a straight line
This will not be our ending
We are alive, we are alive

Don’t you dare surrender
Don’t leave me here without you
Cause I would never
Replace your perfect imperfection

Don’t you dare surrender
I’m still right beside you
And I would never
Replace your perfect imperfection

Song of the Day: Forever by Kenny Loggins

Forever

Now, while we’re here alone
And all is said and done
Now I can let you know
Because of all you’ve shown
I’ve grown enough to tell you
You’ll always be inside of me

How many roads have gone by
So many words left unspoken
I needed to be by your side
If only to hold you

Forever in my heart
Forever we will be
And even when I’m gone
You’ll be here in me
Forever

Once, I dreamed that you were gone
I cried out trying to find you
I begged the dream to fade away
And please awaken me
But night took a hold of my heart
And left me with no one to follow
the love that I lost to the dark
I’ll always remember

Forever in my heart
Forever we will be
And know that when I’m gone
You’ll be here in me
Forever in my heart
You always thought I’d be
I’d be yours
Forever

Song of the Day: Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin

Immigrant Song

Ahh! Ahh!
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun
Where the hot springs blow

[Verse 1]
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde
Sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming

[Hook]
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

[Chorus]
Ahh! Ahh!
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun
Where the hot springs blow

[Verse 2]
How soft your fields so green
Can whisper tales of gore
Of how we calmed the tides of war
We are your overlords

[Hook]
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

[Verse 3]
So now you’d better stop
And rebuild all your ruins
For peace and trust can win the day
Despite of all your losing

Song of the Day: You Better Run by Pat Benatar

You Better Run

Whatcha tryin’ to do to my heart
Whatcha tryin’ to do to my heart
You go around, tellin’ lies, and now you wanna compromise
Whatcha tryin’ to do to my heart
You better run, you better hide, you better leave from my side, yeah
Whatcha tryin’ to do to my soul
Whatcha tryin’ to do to my soul
Well everything I had is yours, and now I’m closin’ all the doors
Whatcha tryin’ to do to my soul
You better run, you better hide, you better leave from my side, yeah
I love you, oh I love you so, can’t you see, don’t you know
I can’t stand your alibis, you tell me lies, drive me wild, yeah
I say what are you tryin’ to do to my head
Say whatcha tryin’ to do to my head
Well now I’m gonna draw the line
‘Cause you ain’t gonna take my mind
What are you tryin’ to do to my head
You better run, you better hide, you better leave from my side
You better run, you better hide, you better leave from my side
I could yell, yeah
I said go away and leave me alone
I can’t stand you no more

Song of the Day: Return To Serenity by Testament

Return To Serenity

I’m gonna take you
To a place far from here
No one will see us
Watch the pain as it disappears
No time for anger
No time for despair
Won’t you come with me
There’s a room for us there
This innocent beauty
My words can’t describe
This rebirth purity
Brings a sullen tear right to your eyes
No time for anger
No time for despair
Please let me take you
’cause I’m already there

I’m so alone
My head’s my home
I’ll return to serenity

Rhyme without reason is why children cry
They see through the system
That’s breeding them just so they die
So please let me take you
And I’ll show you the truth
Inside my reality
We shared in youth

I’m so alone
My head’s my home
And I feel
So alone
You know
At last
I’ll return to serenity

Now that I’ve taken you
To a place far from here
I really must go back
Close your eyes and we’ll disappear
Won’t you come with me
Salvation we’ll share
Inside of my head now
There’s a room for us there

This was a great book. To start off, I had never heard of distillery cats, so it was quite informative. The book talks about the many cats that have become distillery cats in different distilleries. The stories, and recipes for drinks, were really fun. I really liked learning the stories behind these cats and the different things they liked. Most of them seem to enjoy when t here are guests to the distillery and enjoy taking the groups on tours. Of course, most are great mousers, too. I had to compare my cats to them and wondered if they would qualify, but I came to the conclusion, no, they would not. Neither are mousers, and only one is social at all. I would personally like to meet each of these cats! Thank you for telling their stories.

Song of the Day: On The Line by Tangier

On The Line

In the middle of the darkness
Creepin’ round your door
In the shadows of a foggy night
Can you hear ’em call
Reachin’ out for something
That’s not really there
Just another lonely night
There’s danger in the air

In the back of an alley
Don’t step around
Someone is watching
Don’t make a sound
With a hush and a whisper
Another teardrop falls
Gotta fight this feelin’
Can’t you hear your momma call

As you gaze in wonder
At the things you see
Never stop hopin’
What will never be

Chorus
That’s right that’s right
Never walk the streets at night
No not alone
You wait for a reason
You’re puttin’ your life on the line
Can’t ya get back home

Backed in an alley
Up against the wall
Can’t move but you’re fallin’
Gotta try & grab a hold
Your heart keeps pounding
As you close your eyes
You feel it slippin’ away
Gotta find some place to hide
