Alice in Chains - "Brother"

Frozen in the place I hide

Not afraid to paint my sky with

Some who say I've lost my mind

Brother try and hope to find

You were always so far away

I know that pain so don't you run away

Like you used to do

Roses in a vase of white

Bloodied by the thorns beside the leaves

That fall because my hand is

Pulling them hard as I can

You were always so far away

I know that pain and I won't run away

Like I used to do

Pictures in a box at home

Yellowing and green with mold

So I can barely see your face

Wonder how that color taste

You were always so far away

I know the way so don't you run away

Like you used to do

Like you used to do

One of my most favorite songs ever.

http://youtu.be/q7yCLn-O-Y0

Cause we are

We are shining stars

We are invincible

We are who we are

On our darkest day

When we're miles away

So we'll come

We will find our way home

Right from the start

You were a thief

You stole my heart

And I your willing victim

I let you see the parts of me

That weren't all that pretty

And with every touch you fixed them

Now you've been talking in your sleep oh oh

Things you never say to me oh oh

Tell me that you've had enough

Of our love, our love

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars

It's been written in the scars on our hearts

We're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

I'm sorry I don't understand

Where all of this is coming from

I thought that we were fine

(Oh we had everything)

Your head is running wild again

My dear we still have everythin'

And it's all in your mind

(Yeah but this is happenin')

You've been havin' real bad dreams oh oh

You used to lie so close to me oh oh

There's nothing more than empty sheets

Between our love, our love

Oh our love, our love

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

I never stopped

You're still written in the scars on my heart

You're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

Oh tear ducts and rust

I'll fix it for us

We're collecting dust

But our love's enough

You're holding it in

You're pouring a drink

No nothing is as bad as it seems

We'll come clean

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars

It's been written in the scars on our hearts

That we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

Just give me a reason

Just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

It's in the stars

It's been written in the scars on our hearts

That we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

Oh, we can learn to love again

Oh, we can learn to love again

Oh oh, that we're not broken just bent

And we can learn to love again

I posted this on Facebook, but I'll post it here, too. This reminds me of a story my mom told me. My dad was on the transplant list for a lung. At one point, he asked my mom what she wanted to do once he got the transplant. Offhandedly, she said she wanted to go dancing. My dad died before he could get the transplant. When I hear this song, even though it's only one person singing, I imagine the first verse is my mom and the second verse is my dad. On what would have been my dad's 57th birthday, I remind you to sign up to be an organ donor.

Looking back on the memory of

The dance we shared beneath the stars above

For a moment all the world was right

How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know

The way it all would end the way it all would go

Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain

But I'd of had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything

For a moment wasn't I the king

But if I'd only known how the king would fall

Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know

The way it all would end the way it all would go

Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain

But I'd of had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance

I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

Smashing Pumpkins - "Untitled"

 

Should I know what we're missing
What's to stop what they're missing
To feel love, to be in love all around

Anyone can hold a promise
Not everyone
Can feel honoured
To be in love, to feel love all around

Turn me on, hear me speak
Let me be what I need
You're enough for me

Many times while you sleep
I'm dreaming of what to keep
To know your wish, to hold it true
To slay the things that trouble you

Turn me on, out of reach
Listen here, feel me
Just believe, just believe you'll see

To feel love
To be in love all around

Hold the truth if you want it
If you don't, I won't flaunt it
To feel love, to be in love all around

When you're young you can promise
Anything that you wanted
To be in love, to feel love all around

Turn me on, let me speak
From my heart I receive
Plain happiness, just happiness
You and me

To feel love
To be in love all around
To be in love
To feel love all around
To feel love
To be in love all around
To be in love
To feel love all around

I know your wish, I hold it true (feel love all around)
To hide the things that trouble you (feel love all around)
Turn me on out of reach (feel love all around)
Let me speak all my peace (feel love all around)
Just believe what you keep (feel love all around)
You'll never need to hurry me (feel love all around)

To feel love
To be in love all around
To be in love
To feel love all around
To feel love
To be in love all around
To be in love
To feel love all around

Definitely a song on the soundtrack to my life:

 

Metallica - "The Outlaw Torn"

 

And now I wait my whole lifetime
For you
And now I wait my whole lifetime
For you

I ride the dirt, I ride the tide
For you
I search the outside, search inside
For you

To take back what you left me
I know I'll always burn to be
The one who seeks so I may find
And now I wait my whole lifetime

My outlaw torn
My outlaw torn
And I'm torn

So on I wait my whole lifetime
For you
So on I wait my whole lifetime
For you

The more I search, the more my need
For you
The more I bless, the more I bleed
For you

You make me smash the clock and feel
I'd rather die behind the wheel
Time was never on my side
So on I wait my whole lifetime

My outlaw torn
My outlaw torn
My outlaw torn
And I'm torn

Hear me
And if close my mind in fear
Please pry it open
See me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware
Hold me
And when I start to come undone
Stitch me together
Save me
And when you see me strut
Remind me of what left this outlaw torn

Tool - "Forty Six & 2"

Didn't know that this song was so profound:

 

 

My shadow's

Shedding skin and
I've been picking
Scabs again.
I'm down
Digging through
My old muscles
Looking for a clue.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own confused
And insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
Or a word to guide me in.
I wanna feel the changes coming down.
I wanna know what I've been hiding in

My shadow.
Change is coming through my shadow.
My shadow's shedding skin
I've been picking
My scabs again.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own chaotic
And insecure delusions.

I wanna feel the change consume me,
Feel the outside turning in.
I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
Cleansing I've endured within

My shadow
Change is coming.
Now is my time.
Listen to my muscle memory.
Contemplate what I've been clinging to.
Forty-six and two ahead of me.

I choose to live and to
Grow, take and give and to
Move, learn and love and to
Cry, kill and die and to
Be paranoid and to
Lie, hate and fear and to
Do what it takes to move through.

I choose to live and to
Lie, kill and give and to
Die, learn and love and to
Do what it takes to step through.

See my shadow changing,
Stretching up and over me.
Soften this old armor.
Hoping I can clear the way
By stepping through my shadow,
Coming out the other side.
Step into the shadow.
Forty six and two are just ahead of me.

Tool - "Right In Two"

Angels on the sideline,
Puzzled and amused.
Why did Father give these humans free will?
Now they're all confused.

Don't these talking monkeys know that
Eden has enough to go around?
Plenty in this holy garden, silly monkeys,
Where there's one you're bound to divide it.
Right in two.

Angels on the sideline,
Baffled and confused.
Father blessed them all with reason.
And this is what they choose.
And this is what they choose...

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs,
They forge a blade,
And where there's one
They're bound to divide it,
Right in two.
Right in two.

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey.
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs.
They make a club.
And beat their brother, down.
How they survive so misguided is a mystery.

Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here.

Cut and divide it all right in two [4x]

Fight 'til they die over wind, over sky
They fight over life, over prayer, over air and light
Over love, over sun, over another
They fight though they die over words polarizing.

Angels on the sideline again.
Benched along with patience and reason.
Angels on the sideline again
Wondering when this tug of war will end.

Cut and divide it all right in two [3x]
Right in two!

Right in two.
