#Lyrics Last Resort-Papa Roach

 

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
This is my last resort
Cut my life into pieces
I’ve reached my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
Do you even care if I die bleeding?
Would it be wrong?, would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation outta sight
And I’m contemplating suicide
‘Cause I’m losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
I never realized I was spread too thin
Till it was too late
And I was empty within
Hungry!
Feeding on chaos
And living in sin
Downward spiral where do I begin?
It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself
And no love for another.
Searching to find a love up on a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils
‘Cause I’m losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Nothing’s alright
Nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way
Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
Would it be wrong?
Would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation outta sight
And I’m contemplating suicide
‘Cause I’m losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Nothing’s alright
Nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way
Can’t go on
Living this way
Nothing’s alright
This song takes the perspective of someone who feels frustrated and confused to the point that suicide seems like a valid option…..It is never an option. It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem… That’s something I have heard others say… Suicide doesn’t solve anything. It doesn’t stop the pain. It just transfers that pain to those left behind.
This is a song that helped many people express their darkest thoughts and find a way to overcome their struggles.
I know personally…this is a song that I always find myself coming back to. When I feel like I am at my lowest…when I feel at my worst… this song is something that just allows you to scream. To yell. To just let go of everything. It is a song that you can get lost in.

#Lyrics Falling Apart-Papa Roach

I’ll follow you out of the dark.
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
All that I see, is the wickedness around me.
I refuse to believe, the apocalypse inside of me.
I can’t even trust myself.
I’m burning in my skin.
Standing at the gates of hell, but nobody will let me in.
I’ll follow you out of the dark.
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
I’ll follow you, with all of my heart.
I’m tired of my ways cause I keep falling and falling apart!
I stand here again, forsaken in a place 
That feels like I can never win. 
I’m reaching for a saving grace. 
I can’t even trust no one. 
I need to rise above. 
I don’t think I’m good enough, to feel your perfect love.
I’ll follow you out of the dark!
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
I’ll follow you, with all of my heart!
I’m tired of my ways cause I keep falling and falling apart!
I’m falling and falling apart.
I’m falling and falling apart.
I’m falling apart.
Your love’s a fire, it’s alive and I’m burning in it.
I’m in the ashes of mercy; I’m caught in it.
I fall hard and you carry me away.
I fall part so you can set me free.
Your love’s a fire, it’s alive and I’m burning in it.
I’m in the ashes of mercy; I’m caught in it.
I fall hard and you carry me.
I fall apart so you can set me free.
I follow you out of the dark! 
I tried my way but I keep falling apart!
I’ll follow you with all of my heart!
I’m tired of my ways, cause I keep falling and falling apart!
I’m falling and falling apart!
Without you I’m falling apart!
I’m falling and falling apart.
Tobin Esperance (I hope I spelled that correctly) explained that this song is about trying to find something to hold on to, that keeps you strong.
I think this is song is such a great song because you can relate to it. Even if you don’t have anxiety or a mental illness. But even more so if you do. It is important if you find that one thing that makes you want to live another day.
I know people always say that you shouldn’t live for anything other than yourself if you’re suicidal. But I say screw that. You live for anything that keeps you holding on. If you have a dog/cat keep living for them. You have a fantasy league. Keep living for that. Keep fighting. Keep holding on.

#Lyrics Why-Rascal Flatts

You must’ve a been in a place so dark, couldn’t feel the light
Reachin’ for you through that stormy cloud
Now here we are gathered in our little home town
This can’t be the way you meant to draw a crowd

Oh why, that’s what I keep askin’
Was there anything I could have said or done
Oh I, had no clue you were masking a troubled soul, God only knows
What went wrong, and why you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old
Roundin’ third to score that winning run
You always played with passion no matter what the game
When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

Oh why, that’s what I keep askin’
Was there anything I could have said or done
Oh I, had no clue you were masking a troubled soul, God only knows
What went wrong, and why you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Now the oak trees are swayin’ in the early autumn breeze
The golden sun is shining on my face
The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing
This old world really ain’t that bad a place

Oh why there’s no comprehending
And who am I to try to judge or explain
Oh, but I do have one burning question
Who told you life wasn’t worth the fight
They were wrong
They lied
And now you’re gone
And we cried

‘Cause It’s not like you, to walk away in the middle of a song

Your beautiful song
Your absolutely beautiful song

I’ve never really been a fan of country music….except for Rascal Flatts. I am not sure what it is about this band but they are my heart of country.

This song, in particular, is a very sad song. It is about suicide. It is about those who are left behind. I once read a quote that suicide doesn’t end pain, it just transfer it to those left behind.

Like I have said before. I have people in my life who have either threatened suicide before or have suicidal tendencies.  It is painful to see them that way. To hear them talk that way. And If I ever lost them…I would be devastated.

#Lyrics Broken Home-Papa Roach

Broken home, all alone
Broken home, all alone
I can’t seem to fight these feelings
I’m caught in the middle of this
And my wounds are not healing
I’m stuck in between my parents
I wish I had someone to talk to
Someone I could confide in
I just want to know the truth
I just want to know the truth
Want to know the truth!
Broken home
All alone
I know my mother loves me
But does my father even care?
If I’m sad or angry
You were never ever there
When I needed you
I hope you regret what you did
I think I know the truth
Your father did the same to you
Did the same to you!
I’m crying day and night now
What is wrong with me?
I cannot fight now
I feel like a weak link
Crying day and night now
What is wrong with me?
I cannot fight now
I feel like a weak link
(Push it back inside) 4X
A weak link
Broken home, all alone
It feels bad to be alone
Crying by yourself living in a broken home
How could I tell it?
So all y’all could feel it
Depression strikes hard just like my old earth would tell it
To me, her son, she told me I’m the one
Pain bottled up, ’bout to blow like a gun
Stories that I tell
Are nonfiction
And you can’t take it back ’cause it’s already done
BROKEN HOME! BROKEN HOOOOME!
Can’t seem to fight these feelings
Caught in the middle of this
My wounds are not healing
Stuck in between my parents
BROKEN HOME! BROKEN HOOOOME!
This song is about divorce. Although my parents never got divorced, they were separated for pretty much all of my life, until the day my dad passed away. Since I never really lived with my father, that I can remember I know I did when I was a baby, I technically come from a broken home.
What made things worse was the fact that the constant male figures in my life typically left. My oldest brother always left. He won’t say he did. He ran away when he was 16 and from then on he was only around every couple of years. It is actually very surprising that he’s been in the same state since 2011.
It was a broken home, but it was my home. I have one brother who sees the positive and one that see only negative. I’m kind of in between.

#Lyrics Bullet-Hollywood Undead


style=”color: #000080;”>The bottom of the bottle is my only friend,
I think I’ll slit my wrists again and I’m gone, gone, gone,
My legs are dangling off the edge,
A stomach full of pills didn’t work again,
I’ll put a bullet in my head and I’m gone, gone, gone.

Gone too far and yeah I’m gone again,
It’s gone on too long, tell you how it ends,
I’m sitting on the edge with my two best friends,
Ones a bottle of pills, ones a bottle of gin,
I’m twenty stories up, yeah I’m up at the top,
I’ll polish off this bottle, now it’s pushing me off,
Asphalt to me has never looked so soft,
I bet my momma found my letter, now shes calling the cops,
I gotta take this opportunity before I miss it,
‘Cause now I hear the sirens and they’re off in the distance,
Believe me when I tell you that I’ve been persistent,
‘Cause I’m more scarred, more scarred than my wrist is,
I’ve been trying too long, with too dull of a knife,
But tonight I made sure that I sharpened it twice,
I never bought a suit before in my life,
But when you go to meet god, you know you wanna look nice.

So if I survive, then I’ll see you tomorrow,
Yeah I’ll see you tomorrow.

My legs are dangling off the edge,
The bottom of the bottle is my only friend,
I think I’ll slit my wrists again and I’m gone, gone, gone, gone,
My legs are dangling off the edge,
A stomach full of pills didn’t work again,
I’ll put a bullet in my head and I’m gone, gone, gone, gone.

We hit the sky, there goes the light,
No more sun, why’s it always night
When you can’t sleep, well, you can’t dream,
When you can’t dream, well, whats life mean?
We feel a little pity, but don’t empathize
The old are getting older, watch a young man die,
A Mother and a Son and someone you know,
Smile at each other and realize you don’t,
You don’t know what happened to that kid you raised,
What happened to the Father, who swore he’d stay?
I didn’t know ’cause you didn’t say,
Now Momma feels guilt, yea Momma feels pain,
When you were young, you never thought you’d die,
Found that you could but too scared to try,
You looked in the mirror and you said goodbye,
Climb to the roof to see if you could fly.

So if I survive, then I’ll see you tomorrow,
Yeah I’ll see you tomorrow.

My legs are dangling off the edge,
The bottom of the bottle is my only friend,
I think I’ll slit my wrists again and I’m gone, gone, gone, gone,
My legs are dangling off the edge,
A stomach full of pills didn’t work again,
I’ll put a bullet in my head and I’m gone, gone, gone, gone.

I wish that I could fly, way up in the sky,
Like a bird so high,
Oh I might just try,
I wish that I could fly, way up in the sky,
Like a bird so high,
Oh I might just try,
Oh I might just try.

This song is about suicide. But its in a different form that I have heard before. You see, I have that person in my life who threatens suicide all the time. So I kind of hear them in this song. Yes, Suicide is not something that should be joked about. And I don’t think they are making a joke of it.

I think it is more about wanting to be able to talk about suicide but currently its so dark and twisted to even mention the words so they tried to put it to an upbeat backing music.

Either way, Hollywood Undead is an interesting band. They’re not normal.

#lyrics Gravity-Papa Roach

I was there on the day truth died
Blood on my hands, throw them up in the sky
I was a number one sinner no less
My life was a lie and my wish was a death
I fell in love with the ways of the world
Money and the fame, the booze and the girls
But I couldn’t stay faithful if I tried
I’d turn into a devil you could see it in my eyes
I blacked out, told you everything I ever did
I couldn’t take all the lies I was living with
I broke your heart, broke up the next day
My bags outside yelling get the hell away
You’re not a husband, not a father just a pig
And you can never change all the things that you did
That’s when I knew it, it wouldn’t last
You’ll never get away when you’re running from the past

And we fly… 
Fly into outer space 
I float away but you’re my gravity
Die to love another day
We rise again and lose our gravity 

I’m a broken man, I’m full of sin
I’m sick of all this hell that I’m livin’ in
I can’t escape it – this is how it feels
When you try to numb the pain with a thousand pills
You tore me down and wished that I was dead
Said you wanna sleep alone in another bed
But when I push you away, you only pull me closer
It’s only over when we both wanna say it’s over
I gotta change – this is not who I am 
I wanna start over, wanna try this again
You’re everything I need, everything I’m not
So pull the trigger give me one more shot

And we fly… 
Fly into outer space 
I float away but you’re my gravity
Die to love another day
We rise again and lose our gravity

You love me You hate me
You kiss me You break me
You lifted me up just to watch as you dropped me
You promised me – looked me straight in the eyes
No matter what you say – I don’t know the truth from the lies
I held you up like I always do 
I forgave you for your sins and I carried you through
No matter how hard we fall
We always knew
You will bleed for me, and I will bleed for you

And we fly… 
Fly into outer space 
I float away but you’re my gravity
Die to love another day
We rise again and lose our gravity 

And we fly… 
Fly into outer space 
I float away but you’re my gravity
Die to love another day
We rise again and lose our gravity 

And we fly… 
Fly into outer space 
I float away but you’re my gravity
Die to love another day
We rise again and lose our gravity 

Baby we can float away

The rap parts are about the dark times in the singer’s marriage and how anyone going through this struggle can make it if they love each other.

I’m not sure if I have ever heard of a perfect couple. I thought I knew one until I found out some of their problems. Marriage or any type of relationship is really hard. You have to really work at it every single day.

And if you’re in a relationship with anxiety, its harder.  You’re constantly insecure and if your significant other isn’t understanding or helpful then you’re relationship becomes just that much harder.

 

#Lyrics The Sound of Silence-Disturbed

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools, said I, you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence

 

Considering that I know Disturbed is most famous for  their Down with the sickness song…this is a great turn of events. this is a cover song. But it is so powerful. The low octave of his voice really just gives me chills.

I know that the original written by Simon and Garfunkel was about a man’s lack of communication with his fellow man. There has been a lot of speculation that this song was about the Vietnam war, tho.

However, I find that the way Disturbed honored this song completely goes along with how Depression is. How it feels.

#Lyrics Broken as me-Papa Roach

You’re just as broken as me
Shut your mouth ’cause I can see through the lies
We’re only getting sicker from the secrets we hide
Disaster is, a master is, we lie here burning in bed
But something tells me I cannot kill someone new yet
I will knock you out, burn you today
I will forgive, forgive, ’cause I know that it will set me free
But all that’s left is the emptiness inside of me (my heart)
You murder my heart, broke my just and watch me fade away
Now I see, now I see
That you’re just as broken as me
You’re just as broken as me
You always play the victim and you just can’t decide
If the vicious way we loved each other, fucked up our lives
Well, we’re standing in the aftermath, our emptiness is what’s left
And if you really love me, will you love me to death
I will love you until the end
I will forgive, forgive, ’cause I know that it will set me free
But all that’s left is the emptiness inside of me (my heart)
You murder my heart, broke my just and watch me fade away
Now I see, now I see
That you just as broken as me
Just as broken as, just as broken as, just as broken as
You’re just as broken as me
I’ve been a slave, you’ve been a slave
I’ve been a slave to the hatred in you, in me 
I see you’re just as broken as me
I will forgive, forgive, ’cause I know that it will set me free
But all that’s left is the emptiness inside of me
You murder my heart, broke my just and watch me fade away
Now I see, now I see
That you just as broken as me
You’re just as broken as me
You’re just as broken as me
You’re just as broken as me
Jacoby Shadix explained that the song is about forgiveness. About not wanting to forgive ‘but you know it’s the best thing to do’.
I am guilty. I don’t want to forgive some people sometimes. But you know, it is always best to do it even if it is completely hard. If you keep that hatred in your heart you keep bad karma surrounding you. I am all about keeping good karma around you and putting the good karma into the world.

#Lyrics Disturbia-Rihanna

Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum
Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum
Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum
Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum

No more gas in the red
Can’t even get it started
Nothing heard, nothing said
Can’t even speak about it
All my life on my head
Don’t want to think about it
Feels like I’m going insane
Yeah

It’s a thief in the night
To come and grab you
It can creep up inside you
And consume you
A disease of the mind
It can control you
It’s too close for comfort

Throw on your break lights
We’re in the city of wonder
Ain’t gonna play nice
Watch out, you might just go under
Better think twice
Your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter be wise
Your mind is in Disturbia
It’s like the darkness is the light
Disturbia
Am I scaring you tonight
Your mind is in Disturbia
Ain’t used to what you like
Disturbia
Disturbia

Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum
Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum
Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum

Faded pictures on the wall
It’s like they talkin’ to me
Disconnectin’ your call
Your phone don’t even ring
I gotta get out
Or figure this shit out
It’s too close for comfort

It’s a thief in the night
To come and grab you
It can creep up inside you
And consume you
A disease of the mind
It can control you
I feel like a monster

Throw on your break lights
We’re in the city of wonder
Ain’t gonna play nice
Watch out, you might just go under
Better think twice
Your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter be wise
Your mind is in Disturbia

I’ve been trying to maintain
But I’m struggling
You can’t go, go, go
I think I’m going to oh, oh, oh

Throw on your break lights
We’re in the city of wonder
Ain’t gonna play nice
Watch out, you might just go under
Better think twice
Your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter be wise
Your mind is in Disturbia

Considering that I relate this song to the monsters in my mind…it makes it even more weird that Chris Brown co-wrote this song before the incident that kind of changed the view of him forever.

#Lyrics Face Everything and Rise- Papa Roach

Face everything and rise
The streets crawl with a deadly omen
Outside I see a world that’s broken
I can’t breathe, my heart is choking
I need a cure for this life I’ve chosen
The pain, the rain is a blessing in disguise
I feel it cutting and its cutting like a knife
The pain, the rain is a blessing in disguise
I feel it cutting and its cutting like a knife
I will face everything and rise
Never gonna quit until the day I die
Angels keep falling from the sky
Take the broken wings and learn to fly
I will face everything and rise
The earth shakes and the city’s burning
Blood fill’s like the tide is turning
Life hurts and there’s no warning
Lightning strikes, my heart is storming
The pain, the rain is a blessing in disguise
The flood’s coming and it’s drowning all the lies
The pain, the rain is a blessing in disguise
The flood’s coming and it’s drowning all the lies
I will face everything and rise
Never gonna quit until the day I die
Angels keep falling from the sky
Take the broken wings and learn to fly
I will face everything and rise
Running in the fire, I’ll never be the same
I come alive when I am burning in the flames
I’m under fire when I’m burning wide awake
My life feels empty when I am walking through the flames
When I am walking through the flames
When I am walking through the flames
I will face everything and rise
Never gonna quit until the day I die
Angels keep falling from the sky
Take the broken wings and learn to fly
I will face everything and rise
Face everything and rise
Jacoby Shaddix once said in an interview that the key lyric is ‘my pain is a blessing in disguise’ he explained that he used to feel like ‘why me’ but this song is about finding the strength in the pain.
I love this song. I have been a Papa Roach fan since Last Resort. This is one of those songs that I am just in love with. Whenever I feel like my anxiety is taken over my life, I can listen to this song and start to take charge of my life again. Its like I can either face everything and RUN or I can face everything and RISE. Although, anxiety makes me want to run….I choose everyday to fight and rise..
What do you think when you hear this song? Have you heard this song before?
