Music Monday

Music for your ears

It’s Monday, the start of another working week and to distract us from the humdrum of work I’m bringing you another song I love. This was started by the Drew over at The tattooed Book Geek make sure you check him out.

I absolutely loved this album. It was on repeat forever. I’m not sure how I came across them. I think it was my mum actually. I’ve had tickets to see them three times. The first time they cancelled, because they didn’t have enough ticket sales, then they pulled out of Soundwave because they weren’t headlining and then the one time they did come for Soundwave my son was young and he wouldn’t take a bottle. Little shit ruined my boobs and made me miss out on one of my top 5 bands. My husband and sister-in-law went in my place and said it was shit, but I would have loved it.

Lyrics –
(He who makes a beast out of himself)
(Gets rid of the pain of being a man)

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won’t lose my will to stay
I tried to drive on through the night
The heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights
No oasis here to see, the sand is singing deathless words to me

Can’t you help me as I’m startin’ to burn (all alone)
Too many doses and I’m starting to get an attraction
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone)
No one can save me and you know I don’t want the attention

As I adjust to my new sights
The rarely tired lights will take me to new heights
My hand is on the trigger and I’m ready to ignite
Tomorrow might not make it, but everything’s all right
Mental fiction follows me, show me what it’s like to be set free

Can’t you help me as I’m startin’ to burn (all alone)
Too many doses and I’m starting to get an attraction
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone)
No one can save me and you know I don’t want the attention

So sorry you’re not here
I’ve been sane too long my vision’s so unclear
Now take a trip with me
But don’t be surprised when things aren’t what they seem

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won’t lose my will to stay
These eyes won’t see the same, after I flip today

Sometimes I don’t know why we’d rather live than die
We look up towards the sky for answers to our lives
We may get some solutions but most just pass us by
Don’t want your absolution ’cause I can’t make it right

I’ll make a beast out of myself
Gets rid of all the pain of being a man

Can’t you help me as I’m startin’ to burn (all alone)
Too many doses and I’m starting to get an attraction
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone)
No one can save me and you know I don’t want the attention

So sorry you’re not here
I’ve been sane too long my vision’s so unclear
Now take a trip with me
But don’t be surprised when things aren’t what they seem
I’ve known it from the start all
These good ideas will tear your brains apart
Scared but you can follow me
I’m too weird to live but much too rare to die

Bat Country is a single from Avenged Sevenfold’s 2005 album City Of Evil.
