Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 9/10/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “Payback is a bad bitch…”  I’m honestly not huge on revenge or vengeance, but sometimes I think about it, just like probably everyone else.  It’s fun to let your mind run wild about things you would like to do to someone who has wronged you.  Maybe that’s why these types of songs and song lyrics are so mesmerizing.

I tend to think that nature has a way of working itself out, though, so no need to put myself in harms way just to get back at someone.  The time will come when things will catch up to them.  At least, that’s the hope.

Anyway, on to the theme reveal.  In case you haven’t guessed already, the theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is revenge/vengeance.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

  13. I decided to go down the vengeance route. When I first got married I was a country music fan, but then I started to read the lyrics to all the bands I thought were terrible, and I realized I had been depriving myself of some great music. Now, one of my favorite metal bands is Metallica, and this was the first song that I really enjoyed listening to. It’s a bit dark, but when it comes to vengeance, I think it is rather fitting. So here is “Ride the Lightning” from the album of the same name.
    Written by: Dave Mustaine, James Alan Hetfield, Clifford Lee Burton, Lars Ulrich

    Guilty as charged
    But damn it, it ain’t right
    There’s someone else controlling me

    Death in the air
    Strapped in the electric chair
    This can’t be happening to me

    Who made you God to say
    “I’ll take your life from you?”

    Flash before my eyes
    Now it’s time to die
    Burning in my brain
    I can feel the flame

    Wait for the sign
    To flick the switch of death
    It’s the beginning of the end

    Sweat, chilling cold
    As I watch death unfold
    Consciousness my only friend

    My fingers grip with fear
    What am I doing here?

    Flash before my eyes
    Now it’s time to die
    Burning in my brain
    I can feel the flame

    Someone help me
    Oh please, God help me
    They’re trying to take it all away
    I don’t want to die

    Time moving slow
    The minutes seem like hours
    The final curtain call I see

    How true is this?
    Just get it over with
    If this is true, just let it be

    Wakened by horrid scream
    Freed from this frightening dream

    Flash before my eyes
    Now it’s time to die
    Burning in my brain
    I can feel the flame
