Concrete Angel

She walks to school with the lunch
She packed
Nobody knows what she’s
Holdin’ back
Wearin’ the same dress
She wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen
And lace

The teacher wonders but she
Doesn’t ask
It’s hard to see the pain
Behind the mask
Bearing the burden
Of a secret storm
Sometimes she wishes she was
Never born

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In her world that she can rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She’s loved
Concrete angel

Somebody cries in the middle
Of the night
The neighbors hear, but they turn
Out the lights
A fragile soul caught in the hands
Of fate
When morning comes
It’ll be too late

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In her world that she can rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She’s loved
Concrete angel

A statue stands in a shaded place
An angel girl with an upturned face
A name is written on a polished rock
A broken heart that the world forgot

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In her world that she can rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She’s loved
Concrete angel

Song of the Day: Narcissistic Cannibal by KoRn

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: Into The Night by Frehley’s Comet

Into The Night

Two A.M. on a downtown street
There on a corner two strangers meet, in the night
And then until the daybreak
They’re gonna love and before and light,
A heart may break, there in the night

Look in the alleys along the roads
It’s there the losers stand,
There in the ring they bide their time
Hustling what they can
They beg just to get
That bottle in their hand

There in the night
Somewhere in the night
Oh how they do what they do
Just to get through
There in the night … in the night

Then on the street in the heart of town
A lady in black she turns around, in the night, yeah
She stares at the man in the Cadillac
He drives by but he’ll be back … for the night
There in the night

See the guy along the road
Who can he be?
Wait awhile he’ll turn around
See the man is me
‘Cause when I sing my dream …
My dreams will set me free

There in the night
Somewhere in the night
Oh how they do what they do
Just to get through
There in the night … in the night

When the sun goes down
And the light grows dim
Slowly move in for the kill
If you would come back again
It would take away this pain
But I don’t know if you ever will

Love in the night
Would feel so right
So love me tonight .. in the night

There in the night
Somewhere in the night
Oh how they do what they do
Just to get through
There in the night … in the night

Song of the Day: On The Backs Of Angels by Dream Theater

On The Backs Of Angels

Standing on the backs of angels
Destined to create
Mounting the attack
While heroes carry your weight

We spiral towards disaster
Survival fading faster

Riding out the wave
Content to feed off the machine
Bleeding us to death
The new American dream

You’re blinded by your hunger
Beware, your days are numbered

Tears fall from the shameless
Shelter me, guide me to the edge of the water
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter
Blurring lines drawn in between
What is right and what is wrong
Victims on the radar
Stringing us along

We’re onto your agenda
The dead end road to nowhere

Tears fall from the shameless
Shelter me, guide me to the edge of the water
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter
[solo]

Tears fall from the shameless
Shelter me, guide me to the edge of the water
Selfless are the righteous
Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Selfless are the righteous
Burden me, lead me like a lamb to the slaughter

Song of the Day: Tear Down The Walls by KIX

Kix Tear Down The Walls

Tear Down The Walls

Yeah
Standing in the dark
Closin’ in, I think I’m going under
Fell down so fast
From the words I heard a crash like thunder

Never thought I’d feel the final blow
Like a shot it turned my heart to stone, we were
Livin’ in a dream, now it seems so far away

Why’d you tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
All the pieces were all in place
Why was it love you had to break

So restless I can’t sleep
Where’s the flame, the flame that burns forever, oh
Tore it all apart
I hope someday we can put it back together

I know ya’ feel the tears inside
I don’t wanna have to say goodbye – oo
Why’d you tear down the walls
Watch ’em crumble and fall
All of the pieces were all in place
Why was it love you had to break

We were livin’ in a dream
Now it seems so far away
Oo whoa whoa why’d you tear down the walls
Watch ’em crumble and fall
All of the pieces were all in place
Why was it love you had to break, oh

Why’d ya tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Why’d ya tear down the walls
Yeah

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: Billy’s Got A Gun by Def Leppard

Def-Leppard

Billy’s Got A Gun

Billy’s got a gun, he’s on the run
Confusion in his mind, the blind leads the blind
Oh, Billy’s got a gun, he’s gonna shoot ya down
He’s got evil in his eyes, got a reason to despise
There’s danger in the air

Can you feel it in the air?
Danger (Such a strange emotion)
Can you feel it in the air?

Oh he was locked inside a room without a door
His innocence he suffered for
In a world of black and white, they were wrong and he was right
Just looking for a clue, it’s a nightmare come true
He’s going underground to track that danger down
Oh Billy, why you got that gun?

Never give him an even break
Gettin’ caught is the chance you take
It could be your last mistake
(You could be so helpless)
As a bird with a broken wing
Like a sheep in a lion’s den
Gonna fall but you won’t know when

You hear footsteps in the night, see shadows on the wall
And the ghastly sound of silence, as the mist begins to fall
Then a scream rang out like thunder, but the lightning was too late

As the rain came down on the crimson ground
It was the hand of fate
And a crowd of people gathered round, but Billy couldn’t wait

Song of the Day: Would? by Alice In Chains

aic2

Would?

Know me broken by my master,
Teach thee on child of love hereafter,

Into the flood again,
Same old trip it was back then,
So I made a big mistake,
Try to see it once my way.

Drifting body, it’s sole desertion,
Flying, not yet quite the notion.

Into the flood again,
Same old trip it was back then,
So I made a big mistake,
Try to see it once my way.

Into the flood again,
Same old trip it was back then,
So I made a big mistake,
Try to see it once my way.

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home
Have I gone?
And left you here alone

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home, yeah
Have I gone?
And left you here alone

If I would, could you?

Song of the Day: White Trash Circus by Motley Crue

White Trash Circus

I opened up a bottle and I fell out of bed
I couldn’t find the floor until it hit me in the head
I did a little powred off the bathroom sink
It’s been about a month and something’s start to stink
Me and the band we are starting to fight
Cuz if we got along it just wouldn’t feel right

(Chorus)
We’re the white trash circus… Don’t give a damn
We’ll steal your girl whenever we can
We’re the drunken god’s of the living dead

We’re the voice, we’re the voice
We’re the voice in your head
We’re the trash, we’re the trash
We’re the trash in your bed

Been livin’on the road about a year and half
If we go another mile we’re gonna kick each other’s ass
Someone’s gonna quit or someone’s gonna die
And we don’t give a shit because we love it to death

(Chorus)

We’re the son’s of devil, we’re the blood on the stage
You can love us you can hate us but will never go away…

Happy Birthday Grammy! If you were still here, you would be 111 years old. Yup, my Grammy loved him! She listened to him a lot. She said he could sing a love song better than anyone else (However, Please Release Me is not a love song, but the other way around). She loved his voice and said he was also nice on the eyes! So here is to my Grammy.

Please Release Me

Please release me, let me go
For I don’t love you anymore
To waste our lives would be a sin
Release me and let me love again

I have found a new love, dear
And I will always want her near
Her lips are warm while yours are cold
Release me, my darling, let me go

(Please release me, let me go)
For I don’t love you anymore
(To waste my life would be a sin)
So release me and let me love again

Please release me, can’t you see
You’d be a fool to cling to me
To live a lie would bring us pain
So release me and let me love
