Farehaven Radio - 11 of My Favorite Van Halen Songs, Tribute to Van Halen 

I don't get to go on the radio as a host so this is the next best thing. I listened to Sirius XM and there were people like Steve Vai and Bret Michaels picking their favorite Van Halen songs as a host. So this is my chance to pick my favorites. 

#1 Ain't Talkin Bout Love

Of course this song makes my list, it's one of Eddie's most iconic riffs. I heard they were making fun of punk when they wrote it, only two chords. But, it turned into a memorable song. 

#2 Ice Cream Man

I haven't heard any tributes including this song it's a cover but  some of the best blues playing I've heard. The guitar solo really rips on this one. The blues shredding is unsurpassed. 

#3 Dance the Night Away

   I always loved this riff and feel good vibe, but the tapping harmonics is one of the coolest things you can do on guitar and great melodies. 

#4 Panama

  It's a very fun song to play, I remember jamming this with my band back in my high school days. I heard that it was inspired by AC/DC, using power chords in the chorus. 

#5 Drop Dead Legs

    I hardly hear anyone mention this song, but it has some sweet guitar riffs in it.

#6 Right Now

   A lot of people are fans of the Dave era, but I actually loved some of the more pop, Hagar period. Right Now really shows some of Eddie's piano playing and writing skills. Very inspirational song, I remember hearing it as a kid. 

#7 Runaround

   This is a fun and energetic song, my band used to play it in my garage, we were having the time of our live's pretending we were rockstars. 

#8 Pound Cake

  I'm all about the guitar riff in this song, there's some really cool harmonics going on, and the drill through the guitar was cool as well. 

#9 Don't Tell Me

   I even love some of the 90's stuff, this is a dark and heavy riff. One of those songs that get me pumped. 

#10 Humans Being

   Very few people talk about this song, but it was a promo song for the movie "Twister" which was an awesome movie, I remember as a kid. The riff is pretty sweet as well. 

#11 Me Wise Magic 

  This song was on the "Very Best of Van Halen" compilation album, but the thing that stood out to me most was the wild guitar solo. It was the first time I heard Ed with a wah wah pedal, but it was pretty sick along with the whammy bar. I found this solo influential as it's a very expressive emotional sound.

 Indie Music Digest’s nominee for Album of the Year, is a “musical personality. . . rich with Alternative Rock with a side of guitar driven-Pop Rock.” The band was founded in 2010 by David Sizemore, the multi-faceted singer, guitarist, and keyboardist of the group. Compared to greats such as Nirvana, the White Stripes, and Daughtry; Farehaven is known for its “highly entertaining”, “passionate” and “uplifting” music, complete with a “polished, crystal clean sound quality.” In spite of their many Modern and Classic Rock influences, they possess an “enlightening” and “powerful” sound that is distinctly their own. As one reviewer stated, “I’ve never had a band suck me in quite like this one did- refusing to let go and calling me back after it was complete.” Farehaven has received publicity across various mass media outlets, including airplay on over 40 radio stations throughout the country, and features in Music Connection and Hmmag magazines. The band received a nomination for “Best New Band” in the New Music Awards college category. Farehaven signed a licensing deal with Playitloud music in February 2012 and its album, Upside Down, is currently distributed through CDbaby. Farehaven connects to its fans through its powerful lyrics in a way few other bands of this generation do. In “Going Nowhere,” Sizemore belts out, “And if we’re not mistaken/cannot take a chance to waste our time/it’s now or never/so choose your fantasy.” Listeners will become hooked on the fantasy created by Farehaven’s sound.

How To Learn To Play Great Electric Guitar Solos, Basics To Advanced Playing 

 

How To Learn To Play Great Electric Guitar Solos, Basics To Advanced Playing

            I started playing guitar at age 14, I found an interest when my friend wanted to play because his Dad had a guitar, he only knew a few songs, ''Back In Black'' and ''Cat Scratch Fever''. We thought it was cool and that we should try to start a band, I first considered playing bass, but then I decided that it wasn't as exciting as the electric guitar. I would even save my lunch money so I could afford my first guitar. I would watch MTV at the time and see bands like ''Lifehouse'' and I wanted a guitar like their's. It all seemed so exciting to me. The first thing I would consider is before you buy a guitar, already have some music you like or that you would like to learn. I didn't know a lot of music, I had heard some classic rock because of my Mom and cousin. My favorite band at the time was the Offspring, and Metallica. So, I knew I would really want to learn some of their song's to begin with. I thought that the Offspring was an easier place to start. I didn't know Van Halen or Led Zeppelin yet. 

         Then the next thing is to decide which guitar to buy, I recommend a local guitar store. I found a store called Mehas Music in Hamilton, Ohio. I first rented a guitar for a few months, then the first guitar I owned was a pacific blue, Yamaha Pacifica. It was a great guitar to learn on. I worked at my Dad's shop to help pay for it, but I mostly paid for it myself. Then I started to look at guitar tabs, and try to understand how to read them before I even got my first guitar, I was googling how to play. Then I would take some guitar lessons, it's good to connect with a teacher and they can show you how to read music or tabs, basic chords, technique and some riffs or songs. 

              After a few months, I was getting ahead of my guitar teacher and learning to read tabs well, so I decided I had enough guitar lessons. So, then my next strategy was looking up guitar tabs online and learning my favorite songs. My favorite guitar tab website was Guitar Tabs Universe. The very first song I learned and that many guitarist learn was ''Smoke on the Water'' by Deep Purple. I didn't even learn to play it right, but then later I would. I learned some basic chords, but then I wanted to take on the challenge. I started learning a bunch of riffs like Metallica ''For Whom The Bell Tolls'', and AC/DC ''Hells Bells''. Then I started to learn the Offspring, the first song I learned all the way through was ''Original Prankster'', I was sharpening my guitar tab sight reading skills. I started to learn much quicker and had a snowball effect. I then learned many other Offspring songs and saw that many of them used similar chords or patterns in the music. 

         Next I really got into Metallica and our whole band learned ''The Unforgiven'', it was the only song that we knew all the way through together as a band. I also recommend buying anthology books. I bought the Van Halen anthology, after I discovered Van Halen in Guitar World magazine, and bought the Van Halen Best Of CD. I saw that ''Eruption'' was the 2nd greatest solo of all time, so I started to learn it after about 6 months of playing guitar. I also had the Led Zeppelin anthology and learned most of the riffs from the early Led Zeppelin era. I also got into Nirvana because of my friends and I learned all the popular hits. 

         One of the most important things to play great guitar solos is that you learn scales. My guitar teacher taught me some scales, but then I started to learn them every week in Guitar World by Zakk Wylde, I eventually learned all of the Pentatonic scales, and how to improvise. The first guitar solo I learned completely was ''Stairway to Heaven'', then this is when I started to improvise and make things up with what I learned from that song. Then the next best thing is to just keep learning more songs, and solos, then you can improvise with many of the riffs or make them your own. 

         The next step would be to learn more scales and learn the major and minor scales up and down the entire neck, I also learned all the notes on the guitar in this phase. I also started to watch many videos of guitar players online, because I was a visual learner. I used Guitar World magazine a lot, because they had lessons every month and I would learn many of those lessons, they would teach me many guitar licks and riffs. Then the process is to keep building your playing, learn more songs and solos. 

       Playing in a band helps, connecting with musicians, but also jamming and improvising. Playing live shows in front of people helps get you comfortable on stage playing in front of others. Our first show was in front of our own family, even though we were very nervous and palms were sweaty. One of the best things that helped my playing was learning lots of exercises, I learned chromatic exercises up and down the neck, as well as legato exercises. It helped to clean up and smooth out my playing, and I also began to practice with a metronome. Everything takes hours of playing as well as a lot of repetition. I would have a Guitar Grimoire book with all the scales, as well as exercise and chord books. The next thing I did was I just kept pushing my playing over the years, learning riffs, practicing repetition, and lots and lots of improvising. 

         I mastered a lot of the Offspring, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Nirvana and Creed. These were the major bands that I was into and influenced by. Then I decided to take on something more challenging and advance my playing. Next it was Stevie Ray Vaughan, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Paul Gilbert. These are the guitar players I liked and were my taste. So, I learned their riff's and song's and began to improvise with it. I kind of combined all the styles and a lot of my favorite riffs, or licks. Then I started to changed them and make up my own original stuff. Another important thing that I did was I would always break things down into smaller parts. I would work on songs in section and riffs, in sections. 

        So, after years of practicing, learning scales, exercises, riffs, licks, and spending time with a metronome practicing repetitiously and also spending a lot of time improvising with scales, then you can become a virtuoso guitar player. You can really almost apply this method to anything.

''All Of Me'' John Legend Acoustic Guitar Cover, with lyrics and chords, by David Sizemore 

 

''All Of Me'' John Legend Acoustic Guitar Cover, with lyrics and chords, by David Sizemore

All of Me 

John Legend 

What would I do without your smart mouth 
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out 
Got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down 
What’s going on in that beautiful mind 
I’m on your magical mystery ride 
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright 

My head’s under water 
But I’m breathing fine 
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind 

'Cause all of me 
Loves all of you 
Love your curves and all your edges 
All your perfect imperfections 
Give your all to me 
I’ll give my all to you 
You’re my end and my beginning 
Even when I lose I’m winning 
'Cause I give you all, all of me 
And you give me all, all of you 

How many times do I have to tell you 
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too 
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every move 
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse 
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues 
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you 

My head’s under water 
But I’m breathing fine 
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind 

'Cause all of me 
Loves all of you 
Love your curves and all your edges 
All your perfect imperfections 
Give your all to me 
I’ll give my all to you 
You’re my end and my beginning 
Even when I lose I’m winning 
'Cause I give you all of me 
And you give me all, all of you 
Give me all of you 

Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts 
Risking it all, though it’s hard 

'Cause all of me 
Loves all of you 
Love your curves and all your edges 
All your perfect imperfections 
Give your all to me 
I’ll give my all to you 
You’re my end and my beginning 
Even when I lose I’m winning 
'Cause I give you all of me 
And you give me all of you 

I give you all, all of me 
And you give me all, all of you

1. Ship Of Fools 

"Ship Of Fools" 

When the rats are bailing out 
And you are just signing on 
Then you turned and walked away 
There is no love lost here, my friend. 

But you have made a great mistake 
You ate the hook, the sink and bait 
Now you can't get out 
It's much too late. 

The ship of fools keeps sailing on… 
And on and on and on. 

But I can be merciless for sure 
And you'll sail for many moons 
I can't believe you lost your mind 
I'll watch you falling down, again. 

You have been living in a dream 
And I can heat the same old theme 
But nothing's ever what it seems. 

The ships of fools keep sailing on… 
And on and on and on. 

The truth is always hard to face 
Especially when you are in that place 
Like the ship of fools. 

The ship of fools keeps sailing on… 
And on and on and on.

6. I'll See The Light Tonight

I've seen visions in the night 
Passing through the stars 
Who's to run and who's to fight? 

Evil tries to pull me in 
Enslaving me to die 
Who's to lose and who's to win? 

I'll see the light tonight 
Flashing through the sky 
Take my life tonight 

Now, the chaos has begun 
People crying out 
You're all alone, you gotta run 

Victims of circumstance 
Not able to decide 
No, we never had a chance 

I'll see the light tonight 
Flashing through the sky 
Take my life tonight 

Evil tries to pull me in 
Enslaving me to die 
Who's to lose and who's to win? 

Victims of circumstance 
Not able to decide 
No, we never had a chance 

I'll see the light tonight 
Flashing through the sky 
Take my life tonight

Nightwish ''Once'' The Best Symphonic Metal Album Of All Time? My Review  

 

Nightwish ''Once'' The Best Symphonic Metal Album Of All Time? My Review 

Nightwish is a symphonic metalband from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and former lead singer Tarja Turunen[1]. The band soon picked up drummer Jukka Nevalainen, and then bassist Sami Vänskä after the release of their debut album, Angels Fall First(1997). In 2001, Vänskä was replaced by Marco Hietala, who also took over the male vocalist role previously filled by Holopainen or guest singers.

 

Once is the fifth studio album by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, released on 7 June 2004 by Spinefarm Recordsand Nuclear Blast. It is the last album to feature Tarja Turunen on lead vocals. The album cost nearly €250,000 to make,[2] (1,000,000 including the videos[3]) which made it Finland's most expensive recording ever until the release of Nightwish's next album, Dark Passion Play, which cost over €500,000 to produce.[4] As of 2013, Once has sold 2.3 million copies worldwide, being Nightwish's most successful album to date.

 

Love the orchestra and symphony, great vocals and metal guitars, awesome clean production and amazing composition. I give it 5 stars. *****

1. Dark Chest Of Wonders 

Once I had a dream 
And this is it 

Once there was a child's dream 
One night the clock struck twelve 
The window open wide 
Once there was a child's heart 
The age I learned to fly 
And took a step outside 

Once I knew all the tales 
It's time to turn back time 
Follow the pale moonlight 
Once I wished for this night 
Faith brought me here 
It's time to cut the rope and fly 

Fly to a dream 
Far across the sea 
All the burdens gone 
Open the chest once more 
Dark chest of wonders 
Seen through the eyes 
Of the one with pure heart 
Once so long ago 

The one in the Big Blue is what the world stole from me 
This night will bring him back to me 

Fly to a dream... 

 

2. Wish I Had An Angel 

Deep into a dying day 
I took a step outside an innocent heart 
Prepare to hate me fall when I may 
This night will hurt you like never before 

Old loves they die hard 
Old lies they die harder 
I wish I had an angel 
For one moment of love 
I wish I had your angel 
Your Virgin Mary undone 
I'm in love with my lust 
Burning angel wings to dust 
I wish I had your angel tonight 

I'm going down so frail 'n cruel 
Drunken disguise changes all the rules 

Old loves they die hard 
Old lies they die harder 

I wish I had an angel 
For one moment of love 
I wish I had your angel 
Your Virgin Mary undone 
I'm in love with my lust 
Burning angel wings to dust 
I wish I had your angel tonight 

Greatest thrill 
Not to kill 
But to have the prize of the night 
Hypocrite 
Wannabe friend 
13th disciple who betrayed me for nothing! 

Last dance, first kiss 
Your touch my bliss 
Beauty always comes with dark thoughts 

[sighing and laughter] 

I wish I had an angel 
For one moment of love 
I wish I had your angel 
Your Virgin Mary undone 
I'm in love with my lust 
Burning angel wings to dust 
I wish I had your angel tonight 

[x4] 
I wish I had an angel... 

3. Nemo 

This is me for forever 
One of the lost ones 
The one without a name 
Without an honest heart as compass 
This is me for forever 
One without a name 
These lines the last endeavor 
To find the missing lifeline 

Oh how I wish 
For soothing rain 
All I wish is to dream again 
My loving heart 
Lost in the dark 
For hope I'd give my everything 

My flower, withered between 
The pages 2 and 3 
The once and forever bloom gone with my sins 
Walk the dark path 
Sleep with angels 
Call the past for help 
Touch me with your love 
And reveal to me my true name 

Oh how I wish 
For soothing rain 
All I wish is to dream again 
My loving heart 
Lost in the dark 
For hope I'd give my everything 
Oh how I wish 
For soothing rain 
Oh how I wish to dream again 
Once and for all 
And all for once 
Nemo my name forevermore 

Nemo sailing home 
Nemo letting go 

Oh how I wish 
For soothing rain 
All I wish is to dream again 
My loving heart 
Lost in the dark 
For hope I'd give my everything 
Oh how I wish 
For soothing rain 
Oh how I wish to dream again 
Once and for all 
And all for once 
Nemo my name forevermore 

4. Planet Hell 

Denying the lying 
A million children fighting 
For lives in strife 
For hope beyond the horizon 

A dead world 
A dark path 
Not even crossroads to choose from 
All the bloodred 
Carpets before me 
Behold this fair creation of God 

My only wish to leave behind 
All the days of the Earth 
An everyday hell of my kingdom come 

The first rock thrown again 
Welcome to hell, little Saint 
Mother Gaia in slaughter 
Welcome to paradise, Soldier 

My first cry neverending 
All life is to fear for life 
You fool, you wanderer 
You challenged the gods and lost 

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman 
Save yourself and let them suffer 
In hope 
In love 
This world ain't ready for The Ark 

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman 
Save yourself and let them suffer 
In hope 
In love 
Mankind works in mysterious ways 

Welcome down to my Planet Hell 

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman 
Save yourself and let them suffer 
In hope 
In love 
This world ain't ready for The Ark 

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman 
Save yourself and let them suffer 
In hope 
In love 
Mankind works in mysterious ways 

5. Creek Mary's Blood 

[Singing in Lakotan] 

Soon I will be here no more 
You'll hear the tale 
Through my blood 
Through my people 
And the eagle's cry 
The bear within will never lay to rest 

Wandering on Horizon Road 
Following the trail of tears 

White man came 
Saw the blessed land 
We cared, you took 
You fought, we lost 
Not the war but an unfair fight 
Sceneries painted beautiful in blood 

Wandering on Horizon Road 
Following the trail of tears 
Once we were here 
Where we have lived since the world began 
Since time itself gave us this land 

[Singing in Lakotan] 

Our souls will join again the wild 
Our home in peace 'n war 'n death 

Wandering on Horizon Road... 
Following the trail of tears 
Once we were here 
Where we have been since the world began 
Since time itself gave us this land 

[Poem in Lakotan:] 
Hanhepi iyuha mi ihanbla ohinni yelo

[Poem English translation:] 
"I still dream every night 
Of them wolves, them mustangs, those endless prairies 
The restless winds over mountaintops 
The unspoilt frontier of my kith n'kin 
The hallowed land of the Great Spirit 
I still believe 
In every night 
In every day 
I am like the caribou 
And you like the wolves that make me stronger 
We never owed you anything 
Our only debt is one life for our Mother 
It was a good day to chant this song 
For Her 

Our spirit was here long before you 
Long before us 
And long will it be after your pride brings you to your end " 

6. The Siren 

A lady with a violin playing to 
the seals 
Hearken to the sound of calling 

Who tied my hands to 
the wheel? 
The zodiac turns over me 
(Come to me) 
Somewhere there my fate 
revealed 
I hear but how will I see 

I tied myself to the wheel 
The winds talk to my sails, 
not me 
(Come to me) 
Somewhere there my fate 
revealed 
I hear but how will I see 

7. Dead Gardens 

The story behind the painting I drew is already told 
No more tearstains on the pages of my diary 
Tired but unable to give up since I'm 
Responsible for the lives I saved 

The play is done 
The curtain's down 

All the tales are told 
All the orchids gone 
Lost in my own world 
Now I care for dead gardens 

My song is little worth anymore 
Time to lay this weary pen aside 

The play is done 
The curtain's down 

"Where are the wolves, the underwater moon 
The elvenpath, the haven of youth 
Lagoons of the starlit sea 

Have I felt enough for one man's deed? 
Or is it time to challenge the Ancient of Days 
And let the virgin conceive" 

All the tales... 

8. Romanticide 

Godlove and rest my soul 
With this sundown neverending 
The feel is gone yet you ain't gonna see me fail 
I am the decadence of your world 
I am an eider covered in oil 
Happy hunting, you double-faced carnivore 

Tell me why 
No heart to cry 
Hang me high 

The music is dead, the amen is said 
The kiss of faith is what I beg 
A loving heart 'n soul for sale 

Tell me why... 

Leave me be 
And cease to tell me how to feel 
To grieve, to shield myself from evil 
Leave me be 
Od of lies is killing me 
Romanticide 
Till love do me part 

See me ruined by my own creations 

Leave me be... 

Dead Boy's alive but without sense 
I need a near-death experience 
Heart once bold 
Now turned to stone 
Perfection my messenger from hell 

Wine turns to water 
Campfires freeze, loveletters burn 
Romance is lost 
Lord, let me be wrong in this pain 

Temporary pain, eternal shame 
To take part in this devil's chess game 
Spit on me, let go, get rid of me 
And try to survive your stupidity 

9. Ghost Love Score 

We used to swim the same moonlight waters 
Oceans away from the wakeful day 

My fall will be for you 
My love will be in you 
If you be the one to cut me 
I'll bleed forever 

Scent of the sea before the waking of the world 
Brings me to thee 
Into the blue memory 

My fall will be for you 
My love will be in you 
If you be the one to cut me 
I will bleed forever 

Into the blue memory 

A siren from the deep came to me 
Sang my name my longing 
Still I write my songs about that dream of mine 
Worth everything I may ever be 

The Child will be born again 
That siren carried him to me 
First of them true loves 
Singing on the shoulders of an angel 
Without care for love n' loss 

Bring me home or leave me be 
My love in the dark heart of the night 
I have lost the path before me 
The one behind will lead me 

Take me 
Cure me 
Kill me 
Bring me home 
Every way 
Every day 
Just another loop in the hangman's noose 

Take me, cure me, kill me, bring me home 
Every way, every day 
I keep on watching us sleep 

Relive the old sin of Adam and Eve 
Of you and me 
Forgive the adoring beast 

Redeem me into childhood 
Show me myself without the shell 
Like the advent of May 
I'll be there when you say 
Time to never hold our love 

My fall will be for you 
My love will be in you 
You were the one to cut me 
So I'll bleed forever 

10. Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan 

Kerran vain haaveeni nähdä sain 
En pienuutta alla tähtien tuntenut 
Kerran sain kehtooni kalterit 
Vankina sieltä kirjettä kirjoitan 

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee 

Sinussa maailman kauneus 
Josta kuolema teki minusta taiteilijan 

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee 

Oman taivaan tänne loin 
Anna minun päästä pois 

[English translation:] 

Death Makes Artists 

Only once I could see my dream 
Didn't feel the smallness under the stars 
Once I got bars in my cradle 
As a prisoner I write a letter from there 

My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am 
In you is the beauty of the world, of which death made me an artist 
My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am 

My own heaven I created here 
Let me get away 
My own heaven I created here 
Let me get away 

11. Higher Than Hope 

Time it took the most of me 
And left me with no key 
To unlock the chest of remedy 
Mother, the pain ain't hurting me 
But the love that I feel 
When you hold me near 

The hopes were high 
The choirs were vast 
Now my dreams are left to live through you 

Red Sun rising 
Drown without inhaling 
Within, the dark holds hard 
Red Sun rising 
Curtain falling 
Higher than hope my cure lies 

Passiontide 
An angel by my side 
But no Christ to end this war 
To deliver my soul from the sword 
Hope has shown me a scenery 
Paradise poetry 
With first snow I'll be gone 

The hopes were high... 

Red Sun rising... 

Your death saved me 

Red Sun rising... 

12. White Night Fantasy 

[bonus track] 

Enchantress came to me 
And said, meet me at the lake tonight 

I hunt this song to the white 
Through the shroud of snow I saw paradise 
Peace, no more lies 

Crestfallen soul 
Rest for this night 
Love is here 
Right here under my wings 

I dream of wolves 
With them I run 
For me she lengthened the night 
I am home 
I am in peace 

Crestfallen soul 
Rest for this night 
Love is here 
Right here under my wings 

13. Live To Tell The Tale 

[bonus track] 

A single grain can tip the scale 
Amidst the burden the scale will prevail 
Showing what's worth being here 
Storyteller by a hearth of stone 
A white little creature purring me 
My childhood kingdom gone in time 
The islands filling my mind with blue 
The one in speacial, heaven's court 

All the joy unforgiven by this task 

An errant soul, homeless and foul 
All gone but the will to 
Live to tell the tale 

The days are filled with anxiety 
Frustration, one right note a day 
Where to find a perfect tune 
Just do the work and take a step back 

All the joy... 

An errant soul... 

Dark chambers of my mind 
Locked around the neck of my love 
None of you understand 
And it doesn't matter 
To a broken marionette like me 

An errant soul... 

Oh how I hate my kind 
Have it all 
Yet wish to die 

Not mykind but the kind as you are 
Saints in Cain's mask 
I love you 
I just did

American Capitalist  - Lyrics 

Five Finger Death Punch 

I'm a red blooded 
Rough neck 
Son of a bitch 
I'm a god damned 
American capitalist 
I've got a kill 'em all 
Give a shit 
License to hate 
I'm that one shot 
One kill 
Bringer of pain 

I don't wanna believe I'm empty 
And I don't want to admit I'm wrong 
I don't wanna regret who I've become 
(When I'm) 
I'm an American 
Capitalist

Yeah war is the answer 
Like I told you before 
You're a coward 
With no power 
Just a stain on the floor 
If you're a man 
Be a man 
Stop running your lips 
Round three 
No mercy 
It's the way of the fist 

I don't wanna believe I'm empty 
And I don't want to admit I'm wrong 
I don't wanna regret who I've become 
(When I'm) 
I'm an American

I don't wanna believe I'm empty 
And I don't want to admit I'm wrong 
I don't wanna regret who I've become

I'm an American

Godsmack - "I Stand Alone"

 

I Stand Alone - Lyrics

Godsmack 

Now I've told you this once before 
You can't control me 
If you try to take me down you're gonna break 
I feel your every nothing that you're doing for me 
I'm picking you out of me 
You run away 

I stand alone 
Inside 
I stand alone 

You're always hiding behind your so called goddess 
So what you don't think that we can see your face 
Resurrected back before the final fallen 
Now they've arrest until I can make my own way 
I'm not afraid of fading 

I stand alone 
Feeling your sting down inside me 
I'm not dying for it 
I stand alone 
Everything that I believe is fading 
I stand alone 
Inside 
I stand alone 

And now its my time (now its my time) 
It's my time to dream (my time to dream) 
Dream of the sky (dream of the sky) 
Make me believe that this place is inplagued 
By the poison in me 
Help me decide if my fire will burn out 
Before you can breathe 
Breathe into me 

I stand alone 
Inside 
I stand alone 
Feeling your sting down inside me 
I'm not dying for it 
I stand alone 
Everything that I believe is fading 
I stand alone 
Inside 
I stand alone 
Inside 
I stand alone 
Inside 
I stand alone 
Inside

Mudvayne - "Forget To Remember"


Forget to Remember - Lyrics 

Mudvayne 

What have I done? 
Where have I come from? 
When I burnt the backs 
With the sun through a glass 
Did I seal the loss 
That's become me? 

Feeling undone 
What have I become? 
When I turned my back on you 
I turned my back on myself 
And became this machine 

Thoughtlessness 
Selfishness 
Hopelessness 
Arrogant 

I feel it on the inside 
Twisting and contorting 
Memory has shaped me once again 

Still feel you on the inside 
Biting through and stinging 
Will I ever forget to remember? 

Shadows in the sun 
Filter through us 
Still wrestle the demons 
That arrested me as a child 
Confession rejected 
We grow up 
To give up 
People step on the cracks 
For wounds owed paid back 
Through the words of surrender 

Emptiness 
Loneliness 
Listlessness 
Worthless 

I feel it on the inside 
Twisting and contorting 
Memory has shaped me once again 
Still feel you on the inside 
Biting through and stinging 
Will I ever forget to remember? 

Can you save me? 
From myself 
From these memories 
Can you save me? 
From myself 
From these memories 

Surrender 
To the shadows 
Haunting inside 
Bleed through you 
Surrender to the secretes, inside 
Lies within you 

I feel it on the inside 
Twisting and contorting 
Memory has shaped me once again 
Still feel you on the inside 
Biting through and stinging 
Will I ever forget to remember? 

Can't feel you on the inside 
Set down the bag and left it 
Lost memory has left me 
One again 
Open up the inside 
Admission for the cleansing 
Now that I've forgotten to remember 

Surrender 
To the shadows 
Haunting inside 
Bleed through you

Korn - "Thoughtless"

Thoughtless - Lyrics 

Korn 

Going through the pages of my fantasies 
Pushing all the mercy down, down, down 
I want to see you try to take a swing at me 
Come on, gonna put you on the ground, ground, ground 

Why are you trying to make fun of me? 
You think it's funny? 
What the fuck you think it's doing to me? 
You take your turn lashing out at me 
I want you crying when you're dirty in the front of me 

All of my hate cannot be found 
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming 
So you can try to tear me down 
Beat me to the ground 
I will see you screaming 

Come and fill the pages of my fantasies 
I'm above you, smiling at you, drown, drown, drown 
I want to kill and rape you the way you raped me 
And I'll pull the trigger 
And you're down, down, down 

Why are you trying to make fun of me? 
You think it's funny? 
What the fuck you think it's doing to me? 
You take your turn lashing out at me 
I want you crying when you're dirty in the front of me 

All of my hate cannot be found 
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming 
So you can try to tear me down 
Beat me to the ground 
I will see you screaming 

All my friends are gone, they died (gonna take you down) 
They all screamed, and cried (gonna take you down) 

I got my monkey, got my monkey back against the wall 
Gonna take you down 

All of my hate cannot be found 
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming 
So you can try to tear me down 
Beat me to the ground 
I will see you screaming 
All of my hate cannot be found 
I will not be drowned by your thoughtless scheming 
So you can try to tear me down 
Beat me to the ground 
I will see you screaming

Linkin Park - "Faint"

Faint - Lyrics 

Linkin Park 

I am a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard 
Handful of complaints but I can't help the fact 
That everyone can see these scars 
I am what I want you to want, what I want you to feel 
But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you 
To just believe this is real 
So I, let go watching you turn your back like you always do 
Face away and pretend I'm not 
But I'll be here 'cause you're all that I've got 

I can't feel the way I did before 
Don't turn your back on me 
I won't be ignored 
Time won't heal this damage anymore 
Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored 

I am, a little bit insecure, a little unconfident 
'Cause you don't understand I do what I can 
But sometimes I don't make sense 
I am, what you never want to say, but I've never had a doubt 
It's like no matter what I do I can't convince you for once just to hear me out 
So I, let go watching you turn your back like you always do 
You face away and pretend I'm not 
But I'll be here 'cause you're all that I've got 

I can't feel the way I did before 
Don't turn your back on me 
I won't be ignored 
Time won't heal this damage anymore 
Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored 

You hear me out now 
You're gonna listen to me like it or not 
Right now, hear me out now 
You're gonna listen to me like it or not 
Right now 

I can't feel the way I did before 
Don't turn your back on me 
I won't be ignored 
Time won't heal this damage anymore 
Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored 

I can't feel 
Don't turn your back on me 
I won't be ignored 
Time won't heal 
Don't turn your back on me I won't be ignored

Disturbed - "O
pen Your Eyes"

Open Your Eyes - Lyrics 

Disturbed 

You’re paralyzed with your disguise 
You feed on the lies that they tell you 
Got to break away from the numbing pain 
So calm to the rage that’s inside you 
You're hypnotized, demoralized 
You'll need every lie that they sell you 
Stop channelling, whatever will remains 
To sort from what's fiction and what is dream 

Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes? 

You've lost your sense from the emptiness 
You do as the headlines compel you 
Come home again and let the war begin 
Destroy the veneeer that surrounds you 
There’s no defense for your recklessness 
You stare as the proof lies before you 
Why can’t you see, are you afraid to be 
Exposed to the demons around you? 

Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes? 

Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes? 

You will now be running, in a world you cannot hide 
Know the end is comin’ for the lamb that's standing in line 
Overcoming, there's a fury built inside 
It can all be broken, if you’d only open your eyes 

Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes? 

Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
Open your eyes 
See through the disguise, won’t you open your eyes?

Five Finger Death Punch - "Jekyll and Hyde" 

Jekyll and Hyde - Lyrics 

Five Finger Death Punch 

There's just so much goddamned weight on my shoulders 
All I'm trying to do is live my motherfucking life 
Supposed to be happy, but I'm only getting colder 
Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside 
There's just so much goddamned weight on my shoulders 
All I'm trying to do is live my motherfucking life 
Supposed to be happy, but I'm only getting colder 
Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside 

Oh, yo, yo, there's a demon inside 
Oh, yo, yo, just like Jekyll and Hyde 
Oh, yo, yo, all this anger inside 
Oh, yo, yo, I feel like Jekyll and Hyde 

There's just so much goddamned weight on your shoulders 
That you can't just live your motherfucking life 
The story's getting old and my heart is getting colder 
I just wanna be Jekyll, but I'm always fighting Hyde 
You've got rocks in your head, I can hear them rolling 'round 
You can say that you're above it, but you're always falling down 
Is there a method to your madness, is it all about pride? 
Everyone I know, they've got a demon inside 

Oh, yo, yo, there's a demon inside 
Oh, yo, yo, just like Jekyll and Hyde 
Oh, yo, yo, all this anger inside 
Oh, yo, yo, I feel like Jekyll and Hyde 

If I wasn't so deranged, could I ever face the pain? 
If I ever want to change, would this all remain the same? 
Oh, yo, yo 
All I'm trying to do is live my motherfucking life 
Oh, yo, yo 
Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside 
Oh, yo, yo 
All I'm trying to do is live my motherfucking life 
Oh, yo, yo 
Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside 

Oh, yo, yo, there's a demon inside 
Oh, yo, yo, just like Jekyll and Hyde 
Oh, yo, yo, all this anger inside 
Oh, yo, yo, I feel like Jekyll and Hyde

POD - "Alive"

P.O.D. Lyrics 

"Alive" 

Everyday is a new day 
I’m thankful for every breath I take 
I won’t take it for granted 
So I learn from my mistakes 
It’s beyond my control, sometimes it’s best to let go 
Whatever happens in this lifetime 
So I trust in love 
You have given me peace of mind 
chorus: 
I feel so alive for the very first time 
I can’t deny you 
I feel so alive 
I feel so alive for the very first time 
And I think I can fly 

Sunshine upon my face 
A new song for me to sing 
Tell the world how I feel inside 
Even though it might cost me everything 
Now that I know this, so beyond, I can’t hold this 
I can never turn my back away 
Now that I’ve seen you 
I can never look away 

[chorus] 

[bridge:] 
Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away) 
Now that I see you (I could never look away) 
Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away) 
Now that I see you (I believe no matter what they say) 

[chorus x 2]


Breaking Benjamin - "Failure" 

Failure - Lyrics  

Breaking Benjamin 

Life will come our way, 
It has only just begun. 
The world will die alone 
The frail will fall below. 

Time will take our place. 
We return it back to one 
The calm before the cold, 
The long and lonely road. 

Look for the light that leads me home. 

Tired of feeling lost, tired of letting go. 
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down. 
Failure. 

Drive the cloud away, 
We will fall from last to none. 
The dark before the dawn, 
The war will carry on. 

Look for the light that leads me home. 

Tired of feeling lost, tired of letting go. 
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down. 
Tired of wasting breath, tired of nothing left. 
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down. 
Failure. 

Tired of feeling lost, tired of letting go. 
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down. 
Tired of wasting breath, tired of nothing left. 
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down. 

We bury the sunlight (failure), we bury the sunlight (failure). 
Failure! Failure. 
We bury the sunlight (failure), we bury the sunlight (failure). 
Failure! Failure. 

Failure.

Bullet For My Valentine - "Your Betrayal"

 

Your Betrayal - Lyrics 

Bullet for My Valentine 

Am I going insane? (Insane) 
My blood is boiling inside of my veins 
An evil feeling attacks (attacks) 
My body shaking there's no turning back 

So take your eyes off the trigger 
I'm not to blame if your world turns to black 
As your eyes start to blister 
There's just no hope for our final embrace 
So here we are, I'm in your head 
I'm in your heart 

You were told to to run away 
Soak the place and light the flame 
Pay the price for your betrayal 
Your betrayal, your betrayal 

I was told to stay away 
Those two words I can't obey 
Pay the price for your betrayal 
Your betrayal, your betrayal 

Is it my turn to die? 
My heart is pounding as I say goodbye 
So now I dance in the flames 
I love you crying and screaming my name 

You said that we'd be forever 
How could you kill me and lie to my face 
Now that we can't be together 
There's just no hope for our final embrace 
So here we are, I'm in your head 
I'm in your heart 

You were told to run away 
Soak the place and light the flame 
Pay the price for your betrayal 
Your betrayal, your betrayal 

I was told to stay away 
Those two words I can't obey 
Pay the price for your betrayal 
Your betrayal, your betrayal 

Go 

So here we are (so here we are, I'm in your head) 
(I'm in your head) 
I'm in your heart 

You were told to to run away 
Soak the place and light the flame 
Pay the price for your betrayal 
Your betrayal, your betrayal 

I was told to stay away 
Those two words I can't obey 
Pay the price for your betrayal 
Your betrayal

Mudvayne - "Happy?"

Happy? - Lyrics 

Mudvayne 

In this hole, that is me 
The dead are rolling over 
In this hole, thickening 
Dirt shoveled over shoulders 

I feel into me, so overwhelmed 
All this pressures sent arising 
My life overturned, unfair the despair 
All these scars keep ripping open 

Peel me, from the skin 
Tear me, from the rind 
Does it make you happy now? 
Tear me, from the bone 
Tear me, from myself 
Are you feeling happy now? 

In this hole, that is me 
A life that's growing feeble 
In this hole, so limiting 
The sun that's settle darkens 

Buried underneath, hands slip off the wheel 
Internal pathways to contention 

Peel me, from the skin 
Tear me, from the rind 
Does it make you happy now? 
Tear me, from the bone 
Tear me, from myself 
Are you feeling happy now? 

Happy? 
Happy? 
Are you feeling happy? 

In this hole, that is me 
Left with a heart exhausted 
What's my release what sets me free 
Do you pull me up just to push me down again 

Peel me, from the skin 
Tear me, from the rind 
Does it make you happy now? 
Tear me, from the bone 
Tear me, from myself 
Are you feeling happy now? 

Peel me, from the skin 
Tear me, from the rind 
Does it make you happy now? 
Tear me, from the bone 
Tear me, from myself 
Are you feeling happy now? 

Does it make you happy? 
Are you feeling happy? 
Are you fucking happy now that I'm lost left with nothing 

Does it make you happy? 
Are you feeling happy? 
Are you fucking happy now that I'm lost left with nothing

Mental Effect of Music 

According to arguments established through various research studies, music improves physical performance through a couple of ways. This impact is all to the benefit of the fitness enthusiasts, which explains why people perform better with music. 

Distraction – the body’s performance capability decreases with time as fatigue kicks in. However, some good music will take away the focus on fatigue through distraction. The fitness enthusiast will not focus on the pain and exhaustion caused by extreme workouts and will be kept on the move. Whether you are running, lifting weights, cycling or doing any other physical activity, you will note that the results will be better. 
Increased energy – a playlist with high-energy songs works miracles when it comes to exercise. Some athletes have said that certain music is like an energy drink, and they cannot explain how it works. The music will increase the heart and brain coordination, boosting the whole body to have a rejuvenated energy that never ends as long as the music is playing. 
Boosting hormones – even listening to music without exercising can boost your energy. Music has the capability to trigger the release of some of the hormones people need to continue exercising. Some of them are responsible for high metabolism, which further enhances the workout performance. A positive and happy mood also encourages athletes to work out more.
