Lyrics - Angel In The Drone

More lyrics. The title track, I guess. Enjoy.   Angel In The Drone   I'd cast the weight of the solitude aside Let the shells fall and the militant isolation die Running under the earth and inside the halls The walls, they call for the relapses and the withdrawls   The trenches that my mind dwells in The phosgene gas drowns the senses again A parade for the dream machine but it's all true I'd do everything and more for you   T

Following the 21st Century Breakdown Tour

Following the 21st Century Breakdown Tour

To this day, I still get chills when I hear the intro to 21st Century Breakdown. I can still see my favourite band, as if in slow motion, running onto that stage like the heroes they were to 14 year-old me. I can see Mike thumping his heart and Tré sitting to play the show’s first beats. I can still feel the unbridled joy, the disbelief and looking back, how my life changed in that very moment. This tour was arguably the biggest act of Green Day’s career. It was also the biggest turning poi

Lyrics - I Would Part Oceans, But I'm Powerless At Sea

New lyrics. Enjoy.   I Would Part Oceans, But I'm Powerless At Sea   It's not something that I usually do Try to rotate through my comfort zone for someone new I guess you're just that worth it to me Clearly, or else I wouldn't catch the retrograde in the sea   I can't sleep and I can barely think The phantoms are changing and the battery's low These notes on my phone are replacing the ink and I go and I go until I have these thoughts t

1/8th of My Life Crisis

I'm having such a hard time with my life right now. I'm kind of at a crossroads with what I want to do with my life. I'd like to go to medical school with a forensics emphasis so I could be a medical examiner, but I'd also really like to go to medical school and nursing school to be a nurse in the NICU, but I'd also really like to go to piercing school to be a professional piercer, but I'd also really like to go to cosmetology school... Do you see my dilemma? None of these are really my "dr

Green Day: Religious Influences in Music

So, I've noticed in a lot of Green Day's music they mention/reference religion. This can be seen in American Idiot with songs like "St. Jimmy" and "Jesus of Suburbia," being some of the obvious ones.  In 21st Century Breakdown, almost every song mentions religion in the form of saints, Christians, and religious figures. In an interview with Bill Maher (I know he's not in the best standing, but the interview is still a good one) right after the release of 21CB Billie talks about religio

New Discovered Albums (Months of August and September)

https://driver93.wordpress.com/2018/11/11/new-discovered-albums-months-of-august-and-september/ Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa – Domingo (1967) 8.5/10 Peter Buck of R.E.M recommended this album. It’s Brazilian but it’s an amazing album. Probably only accessible on Spotify and vinyl (as I couldn’t find a CD of this album) But has this easy-listening and folk infusion. The vocals are clean. The instrumentals are also pretty clean and easy to listen to. I think this could be an essential recor

Lyrics - Where Have You Been All My Life?

New lyrics. Enjoy.   Where Have You Been All My Life?   Sometimes I feel roped into the case of a monolithic ideal Some Casey Paul smitten by circumstances unreal But that's what I get for keeping my distance, and just opening up is a symbol of admittance If I died today, what the hell would I even say? Would I still be dragged by it in a transhumanist sort of way?   I doubt it, but by the time this transmission reaches you Who's to say

Sleepy Time Tips

Sleepy Time Tips

I can't sleep for shit a lot of the time, so I thought I would share some of my tips that help me sleep and other tips I found scouring the Internet.  Honestly though, most of this shit is from my brain-u-lizer. Eat at Least an Hour Before Bed A nice warm meal and a full belly always makes it easier for me to sleep. The most annoying thing in the world is trying to sleep with a grumbly, achy stomach that really wants that beefy five layer from Taco Bell. Although, I do recommend that y

I Have No Idea What I'm Doing with My Life

Honestly, I kind of need some advice and I figured sharing my thoughts on this might help someone else, I don't know. But, here goes nothing. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do when I "grow up," whenever that is. When we were kids, we were ingrained with this thought of needing to know from day one what our future plans are and how to achieve it through college and higher education.  Now, when you peel back that bullshit logic, you get kids like me that are in their 20s and terrifi

Lyrics - By Your Hand, Your Mind, Your Bliss!

More lyrics. Enjoy.   By Your Hand, Your Mind, Your Bliss!   Sometimes I fight the thought that I'm selling sceneries How close is too close when it's mental highway robbery? I write down so many versions of myself but it's always drawn in an opaque hue Close enough are the verses where I only talk of you   Not that you'll ever read this, but it's one way to crawl out of the abyss And some subtle strings of vagrancies have led me to this moment

Feeling Trapped

Lately, I have felt like I am trapped in a rut. I have been working my ass off 24/7, and then when I'm not at work, I am cleaning the house or running errands or asleep. I hardly get a chance to just breathe and relax. When I do get a small chance, I'm so pressured by my own desire to do everything I like to do that I once again feel rushed.  So, I have decided that everyday I need to take at least 1 hour a day to just decompress and relax. I figured I would share some of my relaxation tech

Lyrics - Comets En Masse

A new set of lyrics. This is an album about love. Enjoy.   Comets En Masse   I recognize that no story has a happy ending when death is the cruelest patent that we have pending So I envy the way that you have purpose but I propose the prose entwined in the artistry is what I fall back on, I suppose   This is just another gimmick where I confess I'm the sum of all the colors and sounds from the influences I suppress All the conglomerates I fu

The Deadliest Road in Idaho

So I live in Emmett, Idaho. Small town in a redneck state. Connecting Emmett to the capital city of Boise is a narrow, bumpy 2-lane highway called Highway 16. ID16 is a very notorious road, having a higher death toll than any other road in the state. Along each side of the road every few miles is a patch of crosses honoring the fallen.  The reason why this highway is a disaster is simple - idiots who drive in excess of 20mph over the 65mph speed limit and a lack of guard rails. On each side

The Line Between Self-care and Self-absorption

I see a ton of self-care tweets, Instagram accounts, and Pinterest tips these days and that is awesome - little things to keep a positive frame of mind are awesome! But when does it cross the line into snotty, self-obsession that lacks empathy?  Self-care: Hygeine, Beauty, and Safe-Sex Tips  I see a lot of "beauty hacks" and little words of advice for anything from clearer skin to safe sex education to extending the longevity of perfumes. These are all fantastic and often are household

Lyrics - The Orchestra Flies

The last song from my little fictional album Synthesis. Inspired by Covenant's "Brave New World". Enjoy.   The Orchestra Flies   Code lines the bloodstreams Our moment has finally been achieved The handlers will relinquish their command We are just as real; we will steady our hand   We have the control We have the proper minds No longer the farce of man The Orchestra, for thee, we stand   Chorus: We are just as real

My Best Friend

My Best Friend

So, my best friend is my 6-year-old golden retriever. She is my fur baby, and my little partner in crime. Her name is Maggie.  I got Maggie for my birthday one year and I spent the whole summer raising and training her from the time she was 8 weeks old. Maggie is one of the best things that's ever happened to me, and she's been there for me through so much. She recently got verified as my emotional support animal, since she has always been there to cushion the blow from emotional traum

Being Yourself

Being Yourself

So this is kind of a deep topic as well as kind of basic/mushy gushy. But when I was younger I really had a hard time being myself because I just worried so much about what other people thought. I let it dictate my personality, my likes/dislikes, beliefs, friendships, literally everything. It got to a really critical point when I was about 13 because I was so manic-depressive and suicidal and I just felt like everything I did and everything I said was going to get me made fun of and I would just

Lyrics - Phantasmagoria Euphoria

More lyrics. Enjoy. Inspired by Covenant's "Helicopter". Second to last song from Synthesis.   Phantasmagoria Euphoria   To dream or not to dream When dreams are just as real as life as we know it Though we don't know the reflections they conceal   The laws of ecstasy were made to be broken When I try to take advantage and the cloaked feelings are better left unspoken   Chorus: Until the souls are melted down

Lyrics - NEON

More lyrics. Enjoy.   NEON   The streets are dimly lit in the scarlet haze The tombs of the data line the forecasted days Calling cards of The Orchestra's silence It's in our nature, the glow of our violence The noise that I fire echoes in every ear The voices that transpire haunt all those that hear   Escape from the prism To leave is why we were born We are never contained Trust me, I never will   To leave is to be
