Blue October – Light You Up

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 3:44 pm by LynxLee

A quick apology for the profanity in this post first hand, but great music from great artists like this needs to be shared. There are days when we get addicted to something bad, something that makes you want it all the time. When you get over the addiction, you battle your way through it with hate – mainly because you love something else even more than that. This track expresses that emotion very very well, and probably might make you feel good too. As I said, there’s profanity – so if you can’t handle the F word, please navigate away. Yet, there’s a YouTube comment that states – “f**k you has never been used so beautifully”. This is for those I have to HATE to protect those I LOVE.

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up


I’m never gonna give up
Remember what abuse did
It’s time you look at facing
As if you were in anyway understood

It always lowered me to downsize
It always lowered my faith
But it’s in the corner rising next to me
It’s in the corner like it upstage

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

I said I wouldn’t fail you
It’s something sorry couldn’t sell you
A slow rain, a time bomb
Disconnect it won’t erase what I’d done wrong

In no way is it worth
Losing everything I am including these words
Your heart in my hands
I’m sick as all my secrets that’s why this hurts

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

‘Cause they’ll put me in the crazy house
And it put me in the crazy farm
And I’m never gonna get back out
I’m never ever gonna treat you wrong
Get down to the earth and the people
Get down to the earth in your bed
That’s where I’m gonna go
And where I’ll never go
When I’m in my motherfucking head.

So tell your mom, tell your dad, tell your family
That I’m beyond the unreasonable sinking ship
You see I never took the time
Never took the time
Never took the time
To learn all about these things you call a relationship

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

Blue October – Break Ground

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 1:48 pm by LynxLee

“If I could be good enough, then I would be blown away. And I could be their everyone, and I could be there everyday. If I could let go, then I could change the world, but I can’t stop always tearing myself down.”

I don’t think I’ve heard such a more profound lyric in such a nice relaxing tune. Perhaps it’s my own self limiting awareness, but it’s for my own comfort to be humble. I know I am good enough, but I do want to be good enough as well. This summarize how I feel when things bring me down. Ever since I posted Home, I started listening to this band’s album – I love the lyrics, vocals and style.

I feel like I could; Break Ground.

BO-edit-1400x934
If I could be good enough, then I would be blown away.
And I could be their everyone, and I could be there everyday.
If I could be good enough, then I could just glow.

If I could let go, then I could change the world, but I can’t stop always tearing myself down.
I can be good enough. Yeah, I will break ground.

Pain comes, lonely, weekend, shoulder, been here before.
Locked up, stepped on, so prominent, so loud, I can’t belong.
Only by my so wide-eyed other side I can’t belong.
Rain comes, priceless, do whatever works best, been here before.

If I could be good enough, then I would be blown away.
And I could be their everyone, and I could be there everyday.
If I could be good enough, then I could just glow.

If I could let go, then I could change the world, but I can’t stop always tearing myself down.
I can be good enough. Yeah, I will break ground.

I focus on the dawn, man, ’cause something doesn’t feel right.
I feel it in my bones like God is throwing stones. Yeah, I’m gonna find the light.
And the weight of what you’re going through is bigger than your will to change.
You have to start somewhere; despair won’t wear wherever again.

If I could be good enough, then I would be blown away.
And I could be their everyone, and I could be there everyday.
If I could be good enough, then I could just glow.

If I could let go, then I could change the world, but I can’t stop always tearing myself down.
I can be good enough. Yeah, I will break ground.

Proud. Calm. Loud. Strong. Heart. Soul. I let go.

If I could let go, then I could change the world, but I can’t stop always tearing myself down.
I can be good enough. Yeah, I will break ground, but I can’t stop always tearing myself down.
I can be good enough. Yeah, I will break ground. Yeah, I will break ground.
I can be good enough. Yeah, I will break ground.

Blue October – Home

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , , at 10:22 am by LynxLee

Home – “the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.”. A place where we go to care, without a care. Somewhere we go to wipe our tears, to seek refuge from the cold world, where we build our hopes, dreams and love.

My wife said that most pessimistic minds seem to think a lot, worry a lot – I know for sure we carry a burden of stress on our shoulders from just caring about things. Emotions and Intelligence – thinking and trying to make sense of things with heart. Knowing what’s important – yet consider other possibilities from others; if it matters to them as well.

I just checked Facebook back when I started working in IT – I had took an application test in Facebook where they check if I’m more logical or emotional. I was very emotional, my wife was logical. It didn’t make sense to me, because I knew I had aced my mathematics and she doesn’t do that well on that. After 5 years of being married, I started to understand – I looked at most possibilities, able to “feel” others by being in their shoes.

Sometimes you need some time to get it all together – sometimes you go through the rough times, delay a day; sometimes it gets heated up and cools back down fast. Ultimately, we try to find that sweet spot – that certain emotion that syncs in between those we care about. From there, I think eventually “the magic” works itself – Home.

I’m living for the right now
I had a few friends show me how
I take a deep breath and blow it out
Let it go

But listen I
I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner
I can’t wait to soar
Baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping thinking its the little things that make a home

Like dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

I feel like I’m gonna win
And I’m as proud as I’ve ever been
Cause I’m surrounded with some good friends
Yeah, good friends, good friends

We found
Our home
Something we can build for years

The young
And old
I’ll be there to wipe your tears


I’ll smile if I want to
I’m not afraid, gonna flaunt it too
What a glow when you’re living true
Yeah

I’m living for the right now
I had a few friends show me how
I take a deep breath and blow it out
Let it go

But listen I
I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner
I can’t wait to soar
Baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping thinking its the little things that make a home

Like dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight

Daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away
With the good Lord willing, I’ll be happy to say
That daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

I feel like I’m gonna win
And I’m as proud as I’ve ever been
Cause I’m surrounded with some good friends
Yeah, good friends, good friends

I’m forever like a tattoo, yeah
I got to stay sticky cause I gotta be the glue for
My girl, my friends, my home, family, I do it all

Truly I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner
I can’t wait to soar
But baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping thinking its the little things that make a home

We all get to see
Who we grow up to be
And anchor when in doubt
An ocean when in drought

We aim for it all
We lift of these walls
To make this house our home

Dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away
With the good Lord willing, I’ll be happy to say
That daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

Dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away
With the good Lord willing, I’ll be happy to say
That daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again
