Chevelle – “Take Out the Gunman”

Chevelle’s “Take Out the Gunman” is from their album La Gárgola which was released on April 1st, 2014.  The single was released on February 3rd, 2014.  The lyrics are really powerful.

 

Awoke when the light
Hit me right in the temple
Felt something cold
Touch my toes as it passed

Might not be the face you’d expect
But he’s clearly insane
Got me pegged in the back

Just need a bit of luck
Get ’em up
Point the gun at the eyes
Or at the knees, had to shoot, had to fight
Gonna take out the gunman

Bit of luck
Get ’em up
Made to run for our lives
Take out the knees, had to choose, had to fight
Gonna take out the gunman

Eyes huge, so little left if something
Cracks and clues, he’s crazy as a straw
Why denied, does no one care or nothing?
How, you ask, I ever last so long

Cuz I, I went blind, a blinding riot
He’s regretting every word
Those empty lies
One more tonight, a blinding riot
As I summon every nerve

Just need a bit of luck
Get ’em up
Point the gun at the eyes
Or at the knees, had to shoot, had to fight
Gonna take out the gunman

Bit of luck
Get ’em up
Made to run for our lives
Take out the knees, had to choose, had to fight
Gonna take out the gunman
Gonna take out the gunman
Gonna take out the gunman

Gonna take out
Gonna take out
Gonna take out
Gonna take out

Just need a bit of luck
Get ’em up
Point the gun at the eyes
Or at the knees, had to shoot, had to fight
Gonna take out the gunman

Bit of luck
Get ’em up
Made to run for our lives
I’m so amazed at the way we televise
Gonna take out the gunman
Gonna take out the gunman
Gonna take out the gunman
Gonna take out the gunman

Chevelle Sleep Apnea Lyrics

There sat a new test
Much harder that you bought in
As for the unseen
Just take care of what you will
Light the silent alarm
We never think that we’re missing much
till

I gasp and hold my breath
These needs had changed so deep
To face you all and say
I’ve been awake for years

I need a new test
Then I set out to choose someone to
Light the soul like a klin
Just imagine us chasing this with
Eyes scorned from sleep apnea
A slight of tongue as the seas are emptying

I gasp and hold my breath
These needs had changed so deep
To face you all and say
I’ve been awake for forever

Forever (x3)

Try to read off a letter that’s falling apart
The sun and the moon I count sheep
Escape like an animal I’m ready for
My sleepless stroll

I’ve felt these shifting hours
Mistakenly used up

So I gasp and hold my breath
These needs had changed so deep
To face you all and say
I’ve been awake for years

I gasp and hold my breath
These needs had changed so deep
To face you all and say
I’ve been awake for forever

Forever (x3)

Rise Against Re-Education (Through Labor)

To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away
To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines
We toss and turn but don’t sleep
Each breath we take makes us thieves
Like causes without rebels
Just talk but promise nothing else

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
That sometimes dreams just don’t come true
We wait to reap what we are due

To the rhythm of a time bomb ticking away
And the blare of the sirens combing the streets
Chased down like dogs we run from
Your grasp until the sun comes up

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
That sometimes dreams just don’t come true
Look now at what they’ve done to you

White needle’s buried in the red
The engine roars and then it gives
But never dies
‘Cuz we don’t live
We just survive
On the scraps that you throw away

I won’t crawl on my knees for you
I won’t believe the lies that hide the truth
I won’t sweat one more drop for you
‘Cuz we are the rust upon your gears
We are the insects in your ears
We crawl
We crawl
We crawl… all over you

We sow the seeds to see us through
Our days are precious and so few
We all reap what we are due
Under this sky no longer blue
We bring the dawn long overdue
We crawl
We crawl
We crawl… all over you

Great Song!!!

Taproot “Wherever I Stand”

If only I could show you
Just how much I really care
Everyday I’m torn apart
Not knowing if you’re even there

Yet again
You’re a testimony
Now and then
That a greatness occasionally can come along

Wherever I stand
You’re the one
Who’ll be right there with me
Wherever I land
You’re the one
Who’ll be there to break my fall

Whether fast or slow
If only I could know you
So every way I feel
A part of something like you always do

Yet again
You’re my sanctuary
How and when
That a greatness eternally does come along

Wherever I stand
You’re the one
Who’ll be right there with me
Wherever I land
You’re the one
Who’ll be there to break my fall

Wherever I stand, wherever I stand
You’re the one
Who’ll be right there with me
Wherever I land
You’re the one
Who’ll be there to break my fall

No matter where
No matter how
I know that you’ll be
There by my side
It feels so right

The sting you share
The fact I’m found
I know more about
What lies inside us gives me life

Wherever I stand
You’re the one
Who’ll be right there with me
Wherever I land
You’re the one
Who’ll be there to break my fall

Wherever I stand, wherever I stand
You’re the one
Who’ll be right there with me
Wherever I land
You’re the one

GREAT SONG!!!

Go Cubs Go (Lyrics)

Go, Cubs, Go
by Steve Goodman

Baseball season’s underway
Well you better get ready for a brand new day.

Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

They’re singing …
Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go

Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go

Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

They got the power, they got the speed
To be the best in the National League
Well this is the year and Cubs are real
So come on down to Wrigley Field

We’re singing now …

Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

Baseball time is here again
You can catch it all on WGN
So stamp you feet and clap your hands
Chicago Cubs got the greatest fans.

You’re singing now …

Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.
