Song Lyric Sunday – Graveyard Dancing by D.R.U.G.S.

I’m going to throw out a huge “warning” to all my followers. If you don’t like heavier rock music, this isn’t the song for you, so I will completely understand if you skip the video.(Besides, I didn’t think the video was all that great. I think they meant to post another one, but I don’t think they ever got around to it.) The lyrics, however, are pretty dang awesome and that’s why I decided to take a chance and put something up that isn’t entirely “main-stream.”

This is yet another band I have to thank my daughter for introducing to me. I also know the juicy details around how this band formed and how it broke apart perhaps a year later; which is sad, because their one album is ridiculously good. The one thing I never really liked was the name of their band. The full name is Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows.

Adelle always had the inside scoop on bands; still does, actually. I’m just not around her on a daily basis to hear it all anymore. The good thing is, Jaxon has started liking some of the same music I do, so last night on the way home from a football game, we spent about 15 minutes jamming out to some pretty hard core music. I was in heaven!

I know that we all take different meanings from songs and this one reminded me of a pretty bad relationship I was in. Probably more than one. So many things can tear a relationship apart and there are times you love a person but there just isn’t any hope of making the relationship work for a multitude of different reasons. When you haven’t made the decision to leave yet but things are pretty terrible, it can feel like your dancing in a graveyard of broken promises and dreams.

Favorite lyric: “Your slips and slurs and play on words all fall from your mouth. Each mutter rolling, dripping from your tongue.”

As always feel free to play along with Song Lyric Sunday by reading the rules below and posting your own.

Graveyard Dancing by D.R.U.G.S.
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Yeah!

The locusts took over my brain.
I’m not living for you,
I’m just living so chill with your games.
You hope for sun, I want rain.
We just tear down the walls and the home that our jealousy built.

You’re not as pretty as you maybe think that you are.

It’s been watching you.
Your slips and slurs and play on words.
All fall from your mouth.
Each mutter, rolling dripping from your tongue.
My plagues begun.

This thin man is starting to fade.
You won’t be living for long
So, just fly with me, die with me, babe.
They all swim while I drown.
They just dig up the dirt and bury us into the ground.

You’re not as special as you maybe think that you are.

It’s been watching you.
Your slips and slurs and play on words.
All fall from your mouth.
Each mutter, rolling dripping from your tongue.
My plagues begun.

Why is it I love you so much and all you do is
hate, hate, hate everything you’ve become?
Why is it I love you so much and all you do is
hate, hate, hate everything you’ve become?

It’s been watching you.
Your slips and slurs and play on words.
All fall from your mouth.
Each mutter, rolling dripping from your tongue.
It’s been watching you.
Your slips and slurs and play on words.
All fall from your mouth.
Each mutter, rolling dripping from your tongue.
My plagues begun.
