Song Lyric Sunday – Evil Angel by Breaking Benjamin

I suppose this wasn’t a very lively theme this week, but I do like exploring all different kinds of emotions and things through music.  I find it more interesting than just posting a favorite song, although that can be fun as well.

I didn’t immediately think of a song when I posted the theme.  I actually went searching through my library and even did a search online, but somehow I just knew that Breaking Benjamin would have a song about lies… they tend to post songs that are darker in nature.  I still find their music and lyrics compelling though, and sometimes it’s nice to just wallow in sadness for a bit.

This song, to me, has an overall theme of the lies we live with and deal with every day.  Sometimes it feels like there isn’t much authenticity to be had.  I’ve always tried to be an honest person, and I’m probably honest to a point that isn’t nice sometimes.  That actually makes me think of a funny story.

I was at my sister’s house for a party a few months ago and she made deviled eggs for the party.  Now, everyone has told me that they love my deviled eggs, but she asked me to bring a salad instead.  I was excited to taste the deviled eggs, because who doesn’t love them?  I took one bite and almost couldn’t finish it.  I immediately told my sister that they were awful.  Maybe I should have lightened it up a little, but honestly, she ate them and said the same thing.  Anyway, I try to soften the truth sometimes, but most of the time, brutally honest is what you’re going to get from me.

I hope you enjoy another song by Breaking Benjamin!

The lyrics are in the video, so I won’t repeat them in the post.

  1. Hah, I have a tendency to tell it like it is myself, no matter how abrasive it might come across. I probably should work on tact myself but damn, I’ve pissed a lot of people off over the years and lost a lot of friends because of my sometimes incredibly brutal honesty. I don’t know if it’s a blessing or a curse. Maybe a bit of both?

    But yeah, I imagine having no friends is better than having imaginary (fake) friends. Great song. Not only fake friends but lies and crooked people? Yeah, that sounds like my immediate supervisor. If only the higher-ups knew the bullshit and shady business practices he pulls.
