Lyrics of the day

I’m wakin’ up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I’m breathin’ in the chemicals
I’m breakin’ in, shapin’ up
Then checkin’ out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse, whoa

I’m wakin’ up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive

[Verse 2]
I raise my flags, dye my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’ll paint it red to fit right in
I’m breakin’ in, shapin’ up
Checkin’ out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse


All systems go, sun hasn’t died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
Bury me alive, bury me with pride
Bury me with berries, that forbidden fruit and cherry wine
Thank you berry much, but tonight’s my night and I’m Barry Bonds
Swingin’ for the fences, barbaric Kendrick in idle time
Everything in life’s subject to change, change whip, change grind
Change clothes, change opinions, right before I change my mind
I don’t really know yah business, been in there since I was bendin’ Lego blocks
Now you tell the world about me, dry snitch
Tater tots on my shotgun, now I gotta pop one at the stars
Sky’s the limit, I gotta finish as the first rapper on Mars
Mark my word, I’ma make my mark, even when they start their Martial Law
Even when these Martians alienate, my mental state is still at heart
Fuck, look in my eyes, tell me I died, tell me I tried, to compromise
Tell me you love me, tell me that I, don’t give a fuck and can barely decide
Wishin’ good luck on my enemies, all of my energy go to the almighty God
I could drown in a bottle of Hennessy, fuck your amenities, I’m gettin’ better with time


Song: “Radioactive” remix Imagine Dragons Ft. Kendrick Lamar

LYRICS of the Day

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
That’s all right because I like the way it hurts
Just going to stand there and hear me cry?
Well that’s all right because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

[Verse 1]
I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there’s a steel knife in my windpipe
I can’t breathe but I still fight while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right it’s like I’m in flight
High off of love, drunk from my hate
It’s like I’m huffing paint and I love her the more I suffer
I suffocate and right before I’m about to drown
She resuscitates me, she fucking hates me and I love it
“Wait, where you going?” “I’m leaving you” “No you ain’t”
Come back, we’re running right back here we go again
It’s so insane, cause when it’s going good it’s going great
I’m Superman with the wind at his back, she’s Lois Lane
But when it’s bad it’s awful
I feel so ashamed, I snap, “who’s that dude?”
I don’t even know his name
I laid hands on her, I’ll never stoop so low again
I guess I don’t know my own strength


[Verse 2]
You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe when you’re with them?
You meet, and neither one of you even know what hit them
Got that warm fuzzy feeling, yeah them chills used to get them
Now you’re getting fucking sick of looking at them?
You swore you’d never hit them, never do nothing to hurt them
Now you’re in each other’s face
Spewing venom in your words when you spit them
You push, pull each other’s hair, scratch, claw, bit them
Throw them down, pin them
So lost in the moments when you’re in them
It’s the rage that took over it controls you both
So they say it’s best to go your separate ways
Guess that they don’t know you cause today, that was yesterday
Yesterday is over it’s a different day
Sound like broken records playing over
But you promised her next time you’d show restraint
You don’t get another chance, life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave out the window
Guess that’s why they call it window pain


[Verse 3]
Now I know we said things, did things, that we didn’t mean
And we fall back into the same patterns, same routines
But your temper’s just as bad as mine is, you’re the same as me
When it comes to love you’re just as blinded
Baby please come back, it wasn’t you, baby it was me
Maybe our relationship isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens when a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is I love you too much to walk away though
Come inside, pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don’t you hear sincerity in my voice when I talk?
Told you this is my fault, look me in the eyeball
Next time I’m pissed I’ll aim my fist at the drywall
Next time? There won’t be no next time
I apologize even though I know it’s lies
I’m tired of the games, I just want her back
I know I’m a liar, if she ever tries to fucking leave again
I’mma tie her to the bed and set this house on fire


Song: “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem and Rihanna



LYRICS of the day

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You’re barely waking
And I’m tangled up in you, yeah

I’m open, you’re closed
Where I follow, you’ll go
I worry I won’t see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find you and I collide

[Verse 2]
I’m quiet you know
You make a first impression
I’ve found I’m scared to know
I’m always on your mind


Don’t stop here
I lost my place
I’m close behind


You finally find you and I collide
You finally find you and I collide

LYRICS of the day

Sunday morning, rain is falling
Steal some covers, share some skin
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in
But things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road, get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
That someday it would lead me back to you

That may be all I need
In darkness, she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

[Verse 2]
Fingers trace your every outline
Paint a picture with my hands
Back and forth we sway like branches in a storm
Change the weather, still together when it ends


But things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do
Sunday morning, rain is falling and I’m calling out to you
Singing, someday it’ll bring me back to you
Find a way to bring myself back home to you


It’s flower in your hair
I’m a flower in your hair

Song: “Sunday Morning” by Maroon 5
