Helloween — Another Shot of Life [Video with Lyrics]

Filed under: Life, Listening, Media — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:21 AM (01:21)

I am no stranger to darkness
I am no stranger to pain
I had to suffer ’till I went insane
Learning from pain and from heartaches
How to forgive and forget
Never give up ’cause life goes on again

Pushed all around I can’t take it no more
Don’t tell me how to behave
Won’t hide away I can make it for sure
I will survive
I will live my own life

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

If you feel strange and emotional
Carrying the weight of the world
Open your soul and let the spirit in
It’s not the end of the rainbow
It’s not the end of the line
Your time will come and you will rise again

Pushed all around I can’t take it no more
Don’t tell me how to behave
Won’t hide away I can make it for sure
I will survive
I will live my own life

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

Shot of life
Shot of life
Shot of life
Shot of life

I’m leaving all my pain away
My sorrows are not here to stay
Tomorrow comes another day
Another hope, another try

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

Helloween – I Want Out

Filed under: Listening, Viewing — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 2:01 AM (02:01)

From our lives’ beginning on
We are pushed in little forms
No one asks us how we like to be
In school they teach you what to think
But everyone says different things
But they’re all convinced that
They’re the ones to see

[Bridge:]
So they keep talking and they never stop
And at a certain point you give it up
So the only thing that’s left to think is this

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

People tell me A and B
They tell me how I have to see
Things that I have seen already clear
So they push me then from side to side
They’re pushing me from black to white
They’re pushing ’til there’s nothing more to hear

[Bridge:]
But don’t push me to the maximum
Shut your mouth and take it home
‘Cause I decide the way things gonna be

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

There’s a million ways to see the things in life
A million ways to be the fool
In the end of it, none of us is right
Sometimes we need to be alone

[Solo: Kai/Both]

No no no, leave me alone

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

W.A.S.P. — I’m Alive

Filed under: Listening — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:38 AM (05:38)

The target is me, a monster you flee
I hate what you say and you do
A mirror is there and look if you dare
The fool that you see’s only you
Oh, no, you won’t nail me to your tree
Or hang my head up high
No kingdom reigns over me
Despise all the liars I see
Don’t give me your
“Save my soul” cure

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Can’t understand, the lord of the land
Your heart and your head made of stone
Lay in the sand my blood on your hands
For God’s sake just leave me alone
Oh, no, you won’t nail me to your tree
Or hang my head up high
Restless is all I can be
Ruthless and reckless you see
I don’t need your
“Save my soul” cure

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Force suppression, that’s what you do
Feel me, what’s in it for you
Listen, I’m on to your game
All your lies are the same

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Overkill — Drop the Hammer Down

Filed under: Listening — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:19 AM (04:19)

Hold your feet to the fire
Hold your face to the ground ground ground
Hold on tight, you’re a target baby
Drop the hammer down
I’m a long life, loving hate
I’m a bomb that makes no sound
Could you please, would you loosen these
I’m about to fucking drown

Lowdown and overloaded, keeping you alive
I see that you’ve exploded
On the other side
Lowdown and lowdown, kicking it around
I see that you’ve exploded
Drop the hammer down

In a mock execution
In a house of gag and bound
Not the best of solutions
Drop the hammer down
I’m a long life, hating love
Under my dirt mound
If you could stand where we stood
We’re not fucking around

Lowdown and overloaded, keeping you alive
I see that you’ve exploded
On the other side
Lowdown and lowdown, kicking it around
I see that you’ve exploded
Drop the hammer down

Let’s hear it for the black and blue
For the tortured soul, the battered crew
Three cheers for the black and blue
Hey Hey Hey
Raise a glass to the beaten down
To their dignity, bloodless frown
Three cheers for the beaten down
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey

Drop dead dreams in a deep, dirt ditch
Buried by a shovel hand
Dead screams from the son of a bitch
Coming out to beat the band
Oh baby how I love your bite
Turn my smile upside down
Oh baby how I hate your light
As you drop the hammer down

Hold your feet to the fire
Hold your face to the ground ground ground
Hold on tight, you’re a target baby
Drop the hammer down
I’m a long life, hating love
Under my dirt mound
If you could stand where we stood
We’re not fucking around

Lowdown and overloaded, keeping you alive
I see that you’ve exploded
On the other side
Lowdown and lowdown, kicking it around
I see that you’ve exploded
Drop the hammer down

Helloween — My God-Given Right (Official Video)

Filed under: Fun, Listening, Media, Philosophy, Principles, Resistance, Self-Defense, Viewing — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:55 AM (02:55)

Why should I wait, what is left there for me?
I come to claim
To win the game
Why should I plea for my fair and right move?
I come to play
I come to stay

I don’t wanna bitch around no more
I don’t wanna stand back anymore

It’s my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It’s my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There’s nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There’s nothing to find
If I stay behind
It’s my right
My god-given right

Why should I lose if I am meant to win?
I know I can
I’ve got a plan
All that they told me is right and so wrong
I went through schools
Found my own rules

I don’t wanna bitch around no more
I don’t wanna stand back anymore

It’s my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It’s my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There’s nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There’s nothing to find
If I stay behind
It’s my right

My god-given right
It’s my god-given right
My god-given right
It’s my god-given right

It’s my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It’s my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There’s nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There’s nothing to find
If I stay behind
It’s my right
My god-given right


The site blabbermouth.net[1] quotes Oliver Sommer, who directed the video for the title track:

“The story tells itself with the first look on the artwork: it seems to be a film still and you only have to press the ‘play’ button. So the female protagonist flees – reminiscences to different (post)apocalyptic films and stories are deliberated – from an army of robotic pumpkin soldiers through an empty world. On the other side, the band performs in frightfully beautiful, rocked out ambience. When the tough girl realizes that she won’t escape, she turns around and kills her chasers with a grenade which looks like the torch from the Statue of Liberty . . . It is immersed in snow on the cover artwork and in sand in the clip.”

I’m wondering if I’m the only one who notices that the “pumpkin soldiers” bear a slight resemblance to Imperial Stormtroopers from the Star Wars franchise . . . ?

And don’t get on my case about the tactical idiocies (cover and concealment? what’s that?) in this one — it’s a music video made by Europeans, fer Chrissakes.

Havok — Give Me Liberty . . . Or Give Me Death

Filed under: Fun, Listening, Media, Philosophy, Principles, Viewing — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:36 AM (02:36)

Cut the rotting branches of Government that stop the people from having meaning today
Stay out of my business and keep to yourself
Got to do things my own way
Minimizing freedom with your rules and regulations
A never-ending hunger to control
Choking out the life of your own population
Abusing the power you hold

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death
Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death to our Independence

Death to those who fight
Death to our Constitution and the Bill of Rights
Showing no regard for the way things ought to be
Stripping away rights from you and me

The Founding Fathers would be rollling in their graves
If they could see what you are doing to this place
The next thing to go is our Freedom of Speech
So I’ll speak up while I still can and maximize my reach

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death
Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death

I find it hard to believe
Some things are better left unsaid
Is this the land of the free?
Democracy is Dead

Cut the rotting branches of Government that stop the people from having meaning today
Stay out of my business and keep to yourself
Got to do things my own way
Minimizing freedom with your rules and regulations
A never-ending hunger to control
Choking out the life of your own population
Abusing the power you hold

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me liberty or Death

“When the people fear the government there is tyranny,
when the government fears the people there is liberty”
– Thomas Jefferson

Helloween — I.M.E. [video clip]

Filed under: Life, Listening, Media, Philosophy, Principles — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:30 AM (11:30)

Helloween — I.M.E.

I should not this
I must not that
No matter how I act I must regret
It’s not me
It’s not me
I got to play
What others say
I got to turn it down when I feel great
That’s not me
It’s not me

I am me
Who do you think you are
To tell me what to be
I am me
No matter what you say
Today I keep my way
I am me

You make me sick
You make me choke
For me your way of life is just a joke
It’s not me
It’s not me
I got a face
I got a name
Whatever you perceive is not the same
That I see
It’s not me

I am me
Who do you think you are
To tell me what to be
I am me
No matter what you say
Today I keep my way
I am me

I got to change this
To rearrange this
Start writing onto my own pages
It’s just me
It’s just me
It’s just me

I am me
Who do you think you are
To tell me what to be
I am me
No matter what you say
Today I keep my way
I am me
How grave you think you are
To tell me what to be
I am me
You better creep away
Today I’m on my way
I am me

Saber Tiger: Angel Of Wrath

Filed under: Listening, Viewing — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:29 PM (16:29)

Current mood: cranky

Why exactly don’t Japanese metal acts get any billing here in the States? Saber Tiger has been around since 1981 and I’ve just heard of them today – thirty-one years later. What the hell was their record label doing for those 31 years (they’ve released TEN studio albums, in addition to a few EPs, compilation albums, etc.[1])

These guys have the chops to make it – OK, they don’t do the “screamo” bit that is supposed to sound “demonic,” but really ends up sounding like some sort of respiratory problem. But I’ve never understood why American or European bands engage in it, either.

I suspect that part of the problem is that they’ve had something of a revolving door where their lineup is concerned. In their case, it seems like a small orchestra.

Filed under: Life, Listening — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:45 PM (22:45)

At about 7:45 AM on Sunday, 16 May 2010, we lost one of the good guys:

“Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.”

Did I See What I Thought I Saw?

Filed under: Viewing — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:24 PM (23:24)

Current mood: amused, annoyed

While I was watching Metal Mania tonight, the video by Overkill titled “In Union We Stand” came up. During the progress of the clip, I noticed that at least one of the band members seemed to be wearing a belt of linked machinegun ammo around his waist.

NO, I’m not complaining. Considering my politics, I’m probably the last person who should do that.

I’m just noting that even after you’ve seen something a dozen times, the thirteenth time you see it, you could notice something entirely new for the first time. This is part of the reason that Babylon 5 repeats NEVER get old.

That, and two other observations —

  1. Overkill has done stupendously well, considering that they get little to no airplay on AM/FM/satellite radio and the music-video channels. One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to was their 23 Sept 2005 show in Albuquerque at the Launchpad. Outside the venue were posters for the local hard-rock station, 94 Rock. Yet how many times before that show (or since) have they played anything from The Wrecking Crew’s discography? I can’t recall any time that they have.
  2. I’m sure that TSA and the European states where they play (they quite possibly have a more loyal following in Europe than the States) would NOT be amused by the belted MG ammo in their baggage. A sign of the times, and not a good one.
