Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys as well as in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are amusing!

Today we are going a little hardcore with the awesome metal band Anthrax.  I have been a huge fan since the early 90’s. They were formed back in 1981 and had a huge following in the mid to late 80’s.  I was too young until the 90’s to fall in love.  My first album I came to know and go mad over was Sound of White Noise with their third singer John Bush.  Because of that I tend to be more attached to the albums with him.  They have had some front-man issues as of late but are stated as having their classic line-up singer Joey Belladonna as their current lead vocalist.  I have seen them in concert many times and have actually met the band on two occasions.  They will always be a stigma for my teenage years and young adulthood.  For that, I will love them always.

So many songs to choose from! I picked Black Lodge from their 1993 album Sound of White Noise because Anthrax and I share a similar obsession, Twin Peaks! I was an addict of this wacky early 90’s  show which this song is an ode to.  Enjoy.

Black Lodge

Worship the ground you barely walk on
You give of yourself but your angels are gone
Deny your body is screaming
But your heart and your soul they’re bleeding
Just to fall asleep is a godsend
Until your demons appear again
I am a witness to your demise

Your biggest secret is one you can’t keep
Lift up your head if you’re only asleep
You try to hold onto reason
Why can’t you see that you’re leaving
My love for you knows no distance
But it can’t fight your resistance
I am a witness to your demise
I am the one who saw through the lies

Give me
The one thing you can’t give
Take me to
The black lodge where you live
Give me
The one thing you can’t give
Take me to
The black lodge where you live

Deny your body is screaming
But your heart and your soul they’re bleeding
Just to fall asleep is a godsend
Until your demons appear again

I am a witness to your demise
I am the one who saw through the lies
My love has always been blind
Give me
The one thing you can’t give
Take me to
The black lodge where you live
Give me
The one thing you can’t give
Take me to
The black lodge where you live
Where you live
Where you live
Where you live
