Song of the Day: The Reflex by Duran Duran

Duran Duran

the Reflex

You’ve gone too far this time
But I’m dancing on the valentine
I tell you somebody’s fooling around
With my chances on the danger line
I’ll cross that bridge when I find it
Another day to make my stand
High time is no time for deciding
If I should find a helping hand

[CHORUS]
So why don’t you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time don’t lose it
The reflex is an only child he’s waiting in the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark

I’m on a ride and I want to get off
But they won’t slow down the roundabout
I sold the Renoir and the TV set
Don’t want to be around when this gets out

[CHORUS]

Oh the reflex what a game he’s hiding all the cards
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre
Evey little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark

Song of the Day: Golden Years by David Bowie

DavidBowie

Golden Years

Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop

Don’t let me hear you say life’s taking you nowhere, angel
Come get up my baby
Look at that sky, life’s begun
Nights are warm and the days are young
Come get up my baby

There’s my baby, lost that’s all
Once I’m begging you save her little soul
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up my baby

Last night they loved you, opening doors and pulling some strings, angel
Come get up my baby
In walked luck and you looked in time
Never look back, walk tall, act fine
Come get up my baby

I’ll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing’s gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up my baby1

Some of these days, and it won’t be long
Gonna drive back down where you once belonged
In the back of a dream car twenty foot long
Don’t cry my sweet, don’t break my heart
Doing all right, but you gotta get smart
Wish upon, wish upon, day upon day, I believe oh Lord
I believe all the way
Come get up my baby

Run for the shadows, run for the shadows
Run for the shadows in these golden years

There’s my baby, lost that’s all
Once I’m begging you save her little soul
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up my baby

Don’t let me hear you say life’s taking you nowhere, angel
Come get up my baby
Run for the shadows, run for the shadows
Run for the shadows in these golden years

I’ll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing’s gonna touch you in these golden years, gold

Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop

Song of the Day: Open Arms by Journey

Journey

Open Arms

Lying beside you here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper, you’re so sincere
How could our love be so blind?

We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are by my side

So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you’ll see what your love means to me, open arms

Living without you, living alone
This empty house seems so cold
Wanting to hold you, wanting you near
How much I wanted you home

But now that you’ve come back
Turned night into day
I need you to stay

So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you’ll see what your love means to me, open arms

Song of the Day: Narcissistic Cannibal by KoRn

Korn 2013

Narcissistic Cannibal

Don’t wanna be sly and defile you
Desecrate my mind and rely on you
I just wanna break this crown
But it’s hard when I’m so run down

And you’re so cynical, Narcissistic Cannibal!
Got to bring myself back from the dead!

Sometimes, I hate, the life, I made
Everything’s wrong every time
Pushing on I can’t escape
Everything that comes my way
Is haunting me taking its sweet time

Holding on I’m lost in a haze
Fighting life to the end of my days

Don’t wanna be rude but I have to
Nothing’s good about the hell you put me through
I just need to look around
See that life that has come unbound

And you’re so cynical, Narcissistic Cannibal
Got to bring myself back from the dead

Sometimes, I hate, the life I made
Everything’s wrong every time
Pushing on I can’t escape
Everything that comes my way
Is haunting me taking its sweet time

Sometimes, I hate, the life I made
Everything’s wrong every time
Pushing on I can’t escape
Everything that comes my way
Is haunting me taking its sweet time

Holding on I’m lost in a haze
Fighting life to the end of my days

Holding on I’m lost in a haze
Fighting life to the end of my days

Song of the Day: The Devil In I by Slipknot

Slipknot 2015

The Devil In I

Undo these chains, my friend
I’ll show you the rage I’ve hidden
Perish the Sacrament
Swallow, but nothing’s forgiven
You and I can’t decide which of us was taken for granted
Make amends, some of us are destined to be outlived

Step inside, see the Devil in I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside, see the Devil in I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil anymore

Under the words of men
Something is tempting the father
Where is your will, my friend?
Insatiates never even bother
You and I, wrong or right
Traded a lie for the leverage
In between the lens in light
You’re not what you seem

Step inside, see the Devil in I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside, see the Devil in I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil
I’m not your Devil anymore

Your station is abandoned
Fooled you ’cause I know what you’ve done
Sensation – Depravation
You should’ve burned when you turned on everyone

So, Step inside, see the Devil in I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside, see the Devil in I
I know you’ll find your answers in the end
Step inside, see the Devil in I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil, anymore

So step inside, step inside
See the Devil in I
See the Devil in I

Song of the Day: Vicarious by Tool

Tool

Vicarious

Eye on the TV
’cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be

Like:
“Killed by the husband” …
“Drowned by the ocean” …
“Shot by his own son” …
“She used a poison in his tea,
Then (she) kissed him goodbye”
That’s my kind of story
It’s no fun til someone dies.

Don’t look at me like I am a monster
Frown out your one face, but with the other (you)
Stare like a junkie into the TV
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
Watches him die,
Hands to the sky cryin “why, oh why?”

Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all need it too – don’t lie.

Why can’t we just admit it?
Why can’t we just admit it?
We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’
Neither the brave nor bold
Nor brightest of stories told
We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’

I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so why can’t we just admit it?

Blood like rain fallin’ down
Drum on grave and ground

Part vampire, part warrior,
Carnivore and voyeur
Stare at the transmittal.
Sing to the death rattle.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie (x4)

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men.
But pull your head on out (of) your hippie haze
And give a listen
Shouldn’t have to say it all again

The universe is hostile
So impersonal
Devour to survive
So it is, so it’s always been …

We all feed on tragedy.
It’s like blood to a vampire.

Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I.

Song of the Day: Freak Like Me by Halestorm

halestorm2

Freak Like Me

I’m on the train that’s pullin’ the sick and twisted,
Makin’ the most of the ride before we get arrested,
We’re all wasted,
And we’re not going home tonight

Covered in black we lack the social graces,
Just like an animal we crawl out of our cages,
They can’t tame us,
So if you’re one of us, get on the bus

If you’re a freak like me,
Wave your flag!
If you’re a freak like me,
Get off your ass!
It’s our time now,
To let it all hang out

So shout if you’re a freak like me,
You were born to burn,
This is no disease you don’t need a cure!
It’s our time now to come out!
If you’re a freak like me!
If you’re a freak like me!

We’re underground but we will not surrender,
We’re gonna give them something to remember, yeah,
So write your name in gasoline,
And set that shit on fire

If you’re a freak like me,
Wave your flag!
If you’re a freak like me,
Get off your ass!
It’s our time now,
To let it all hang out

So shout if you’re a freak like me,
Don’t apologize,
They can’t hold you down,
You were born to rise!
It’s our time now to come out!

If you’re a freak like me
If you’re a freak like me
Are you a freak like me?
Are you a freak, like, me?!

If you’re a freak like me,
Wave your flag!
If you’re a freak like me,
Get off your ass!
It’s our time now,
To let it all hang out

So shout if you’re a freak like me,
Don’t apologize,
They can’t hold you down,
You were born to rise!
It’s our time now to come out!
If you’re a freak like me!
If you’re a freak like me!
If you’re a freak like me!
If you’re a freak like me!
If you’re a freak like me!

Song of the Day: Balls to the Wall by Accept

Accept2

Balls To The Wall

Too many slaves in this world
One by torture and pain
Too many people do not see
They’re killing themselves – going insane
Too many people do not know
Bondage in over the human race
They believe slaves always lose
And this fear keeps them down
Watch the damned (God bless ya)
They’re gonna break their chains
You can’t stop them (God bless ya)
They’re coming to get you and then
You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
Balls to the wall
You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
Balls to the wall – balls to the wall
You may screw their brains
You may sacrifice them, too
You may mortify their flesh
You may rape them all
One day the tortured stand up
And revolt against the evil
They make you drink you blood
And tear yourself to pieces
You better watch the damned (God bless ya)
They’re gonna break their chains
You can’t stop them (God bless ya)
They’re coming to get you and then
You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
Balls to the wall
You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
Balls to the wall – balls to the wall
Come on man, let’s stand up all over the world
Let’s plug a bomb in everyone’s arse
If they don’t keep us alive – we’re gonna fight for the right
Build a wall with the bodies of the dead – and you’re saved
Make the world scared – come on, show me the sign of victory
Sign of victory – sign of victory
You better watch the damned (God bless ya)
They’re gonna break their chains
You can’t stop them (God bless ya)
They’re coming to get you and then
You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
Balls to the wall
You’ll get your balls to the wall, man
Balls to the wall

Song of the Day: Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin

LedZeppelin

Dazed And Confused

Been dazed and confused for so long it’s not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talkin’, few of them know
Soul of a woman was created below, yeah.

You hurt and abuse tellin’ all of your lies.
Run ’round sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don’t know where you’ve been.
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Ev’ry day I work so hard bringin’ home my hard-earned pay.
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don’t know where you’re goin’, I don’t know just where you’ve been;
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
Oh, yeah! Alright!
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
Oh don’t leave me so confused, no! Oh, baby!

Been dazed and confused for so long, it’s not true,
Wanted a woman never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
(Will your) tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?

Ooh, yeah! Alright!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
