Music Monday: “The Worst of Them” by Issues

“The Worst of Them” by Issues 

Funny how every time you push me away, order you turn around and you beg me to stay
Cut down by the things you say, it’s the beating of a broken drum
One of these days you’ll push me away, turn around it’ll be too late

Your love is addictive, trying hard just to quit it
But you’re drowning yourself you won’t catch a breath until you admit it
Is anybody out there, I’m dying in a nightmare
You got third degree burns and now it’s your turn to feel what I feel
And if it don’t hurt then you know what we got ain’t real

This love is a monster, it’s eating me alive
Let go of my hand you don’t give a damn and it’s killing me inside
You show me no mercy, did God make a mistake?
Put a hole in your heart and then you can start to feel what I feel
And if it don’t hurt then you know what we got ain’t real

Where will you go when you’ve refused my benevolence

Music Monday: “Ancient History” by Set It Off

I couldn’t decide what song to profile on this Music Monday…and then Set It Off premiered their new video and I thought…well, stuff that works haha.

“Ancient History” by Set It Off

So the video apparently won’t show until the 3rd buuuuut I want the video to sit here haha so I’m leaving this nice blank video there. If you’d like to check out the ACTUAL video, about it head to this link! 

No, try there’s no denying chemistry this strong
Yes, pretend it’s right but we both know it’s wrong

Thinking about the storm advancing
Thinking about the lightning dancing
In your eyes
But I
Can’t shake these memories that rain inside

Tension builds,
I think we’re under-thinking part time thrills

I know, I know how to drive you wild
You know, you know how to make me smile
But I need you to be
My ancient history

Damn, pick up the phone, oh, I know I’m drunk again
And you know my intentions ’cause it’s two AM

It’s fun and games until we both get hurt
We play with fire ’cause we like the way it burns
No use in patching up a sinking ship.
This is the last time we do this, baby
This is the last time you taste my lips

I know, I know how to drive you wild
You know, you know how to make me smile
But I need you to be
My ancient history
I know, I know who you really are
You know, you know how to break my heart
But I need you to be
My ancient history

Yeah, it’s the way you let me throw you across the bed
Got you running through my head
When I know I should be sleeping
But I can’t escape
You’re addicted to the lust,
The imaginary trust
That you’re begging for me, screaming for it
Here we go, now it’s time to cut the cord
And abandon all support
We’re through.

I know, I know how to drive you wild
You know, you know how to make me smile
But I need you to be
My ancient history
I know, I know who you really are
You know, you know how to break my heart
But I need you to be
My ancient history

I know, I know,
You know, you know
(No baby don’t come back, don’t come back)
But I need you to be
My ancient history

Music Monday: “Our Last Day” by Green Light Theory

I am so excited to bring you today’s Music Monday. These guys are friends of mine and they are just straight up awesome. I met them super randomly nearly a year ago, buy outside a venue where I was seeing one of my favorite bands, Set It Off. They were playing acoustic, and just trying to get people to notice them. Awesome idea, and it totally worked for me. I’m HOOKED.

Well I decided to share them today because their album is completely FREE right now, for the next couple days, on their bandcamp and I URGE you to take advantage of this super cool deal. They’ll be playing a show at The Mint in LA this coming Sunday, the 15th, and they’ll be OPENING for Hawthorne Heights (!!!) in March in New York! SO stoked.

So make sure to click the links below, check them, and download their album for free here. And now enjoy their newest single and video :)

The Langdon House” by Issues 

2014-Band-Members-issues-37741108-960-640

Did I fail to mention, it’s all part of my imagination
I could actually pick and choose my loose ends
And tie a knot, but all I do is
Run and hide, it’ll get ya boy
Run and hide, all I need is a friend
My whole life has been a war, so I battle myself until I
Run and hide

Bleak December” by Set it Off

set_it_off_august_2014

In that bleak December,
You’re just too cold,
But I need the answer,
Before you’d fold,
You would hold your cards inside your chest,
I think I drove too far,
For that bleak December and how full of shit you are.

Rainy Girl” by Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

37-etxl1

Rainy girl
I can’t wait to meet you
And I can’t wait to hear your name
And sing it to the skies above

Remembering Sunday” by All Time Low

319-cover

Forgive me, I’m trying to find
My calling, I’m calling at night
I don’t mean to be a bother, but have you seen this girl?
She’s been running through my dreams
And it’s driving me crazy, it seems
I’m gonna ask her to marry me

Sad Ghost” by Issues

Issues-band-2013

Why do I do the things that I do
And they blind you
Yet you are the only one who can see what I’ve done

Guess I’ll never know what I meant to you
This year’s been lonely but at least it’s through
I’ll write a letter to my former self
Dear sad ghost, why’d you put your heart on the shelf

Same Old War” by Our Last Night

our-last-night-idobi

Should I run away, and change my name?
or Should I, stay and fight through the night, and never close my eyes?
I’ll never close my eyes!

Seven Years” by Saosin

saosin_2014

That mistake was gold
I know that without you
is something that I could never do
That was why staple the eyes and
seven dates for me to sell machines
and tear on

I’ve Never Felt This Way Before” by Our Last Night 

OurLastnight-MARCH13

Feet on the ground, I was lost, now I’m found
I took cover from the rain, ‘cause it was pouring down
You held me back, and now I’m on the right track
You couldn’t stop me if you wanted, ‘cause I’m never coming back

The Haunting” by Set It Off

Set-It-Off-Duality

All I could find was an acoustic video, but check out this song. Literally, I can’t handle how much I love this song.

No one will love you like I did, will treat you like I did
So go on, wear that scarlet letter
No one will love you like I did, will you fuck you like I did
So good luck finding something better

Sidewalks” by Story of the Year 

Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 1.53.18 AM

Out on the front porch,
watching the cars as they go by
(Eighteen blue, twenty one grey)
Looking ahead for the first time that we could drive,
Out on our own,
To speed away

From the sidewalks,
Running away from the streets we knew,
Sidewalks,
Like the time we thought was made for you.

Music Monday: “Same Old War” by Our Last Night

I just saw Our Last Night for the second time this past Saturday night. They were absolutely incredible and I’m still reeling from it. Their energy and passion when they play live is just amazing. If you haven’t had a chance to check them out, approved listen to this song here and scroll down for all their links :)

“Same Old War” by Our Last Night

I’ve been fighting the same old war,
against a disease, without a cure!
Been holding on for so long! For so long. For so long!
I’ve been wishing upon a star, if my universe falls apart!
I feel so far from the sky, as my dreams, are going by!
and They say, it’s a battle that can’t be won!
We need our knives, we need our guns!

Should I run away, and change my name?
or Should I, stay and fight through the night, and never close my eyes?
I’ll never close my eyes!

I’ve come too far, to go back now, turn into a face in the crowd!
Been on this road, for so long! For so long… For so long!
Convinced there is no way out, my world is turned upside down!
My sense of direction’s been gone, for so long! For so long…
and They say, it’s a battle that can’t be won!
We need our knives, we need our guns!

Should I run away, and change my name?
or Should I, stay and fight through the night, and never close my eyes?
I’ll never close my eyes!

Stay strong, keep moving, can’t let the darkness blind us!
Carry on, we’ll be the ones to pull the stars down to us!
Stay strong, keep moving, can’t let the darkness blind us!
Carry on, we’ll be the ones to pull the stars down to us!

Should I run away, and change my name?
or Should I, stay and fight through the night, and never close my eyes?
I’ll never close my eyes!

Music Monday: “Infinity” by Against the Current

“Infinity” by Against the Current 

Rooftop tonight we are the skyline
Collecting shooting stars wishes in jar
All the hearts wide-awake and lonely
Dream of where we are

Run so fast
The wind can’t catch us
It’s at our back
The sun is falling
Things don’t last
When you’re young cause
All you get is
Just one chance to

Break away to beat the odds
All along it’s been a race against the clock
Time won’t wait were gonna leave
Somewhere we’ll find infinity
We’ll find infinity

Breaking hearts just for the hell of it
Anything so we can feel dangerous
Everywhere we go we leave shadows from the past
We won’t die young but we’ll live fast

Run so fast
The wind can’t catch us
It’s at our back
The sun is falling
Things don’t last
When you’re young cause
All you get is
Just one chance to

Break away to beat the odds
All along it’s been a race against the clock
Time won’t wait were gonna leave
Somewhere we’ll find infinity
Find infinity
Infinity

Break away to beat the odds
All along it’s been a race against the clock
Time won’t wait were gonna leave
Somewhere we’ll find infinity
Break away to beat the odds
All along it’s been a race against the clock
Time won’t wait were gonna leave
Somewhere we’ll find infinity
Somewhere we’ll find infinity
We’ll find infinity

Music Monday: “Kill the Messenger” by Jack’s Mannequin

“Kill the Messenger” by Jack’s Mannequin

Oh my God, this hurts like hell
I had that dream again where
I was lost for good in outer space
Tell me, doctor, how to shake
A waking nightmare that is only
Worse when I am sleeping

Kill the messenger
I swear it’s not me
It’s just someone I used to know
And get to church cause you’re a good girl
And he never told you that
And all I need from you
Could be the thing that
Leaves us both up here forever
I’m gonna send a little rain your way
I’m gonna send a little rain…

It’s not so easy, caving in
I walked by your apartment twice today
While you were gone at work
And all the colors got so down
It’s not as cold out here
But come quick, I am losing feeling

Kill the messenger
I swear it’s not me
It’s just someone I used to know
And get to church cause you’re a good girl
And he never told you that
And all I need from you
Could be the thing that
Leaves us both up here forever
I’m gonna send a little rain your way
I’m gonna send a little rain, send a little rain

I’m gonna send a little rain to pour down on you
Rain that makes the flowers bloom
Rain to leave you all alone
That keeps eyelashes falling
And wishes washed away

Kill the messenger
I swear it’s not me
It’s just someone I used to know
And get to church cause you’re a good girl
And he never told you that
And all I need from you
Could be the thing that
Leaves us both up here forever
I’m gonna send a little rain your way
I’m gonna send a little rain…
I’m gonna send a little rain your way
