Music Monday: Black Honey by Thrice

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

Since I stumbled upon this song sometime last year, I became a wee bit obsessed with it. Black Honey is hands down my favorite song from last year. I was thinking about another song for this monday, but then decided I didn’t want to go there so I choose this one instead.

Hard to say what hooked me to this song: I think it’s the voice of the singer. But then, with me the first thing is always the voice of the singer. Dustin’s voice is deep and full of emotions which he can convey to the audience. You just feel like you want to grab your own heart and tear it out so you won’t feel what he wants you to feel.

For me the lyrics means that no matter what, you have to keep going, you have to stand up everytime life puts you down and do whatever you want until you reach your goal. Even if the odds are against you, even is the world shuns you and tries to stop you saying you can’t. In the end everything comes down to your will and determination no matter what it is you desire. You have to believe in yourself and know that you can do it.

Lyrics

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees ’cause I…
I want honey on my table
I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees ’cause I…
I want honey on my table

But I never get it right
No I never get it right

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees
I can’t understand why they’re stinging me
But I’ll do what I want, I’ll do what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need

I’ll rip and smash through the hornet’s nest
Don’t they understand I deserve the best
And I’ll do what I want, I’ll do what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need

I tried to stick this pin through a butterfly ’cause I…
I like all the pretty colors
But it just fell apart so I flung it in the fire
To burn with all the others

Cause I never get it right
No, I never get it right

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees
I can’t understand why they’re stinging me
But I’ll do what I want, I’ll do what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need

I’ll rip and smash through the hornet’s nest
Don’t they understand I deserve the best
And I’ll do what I want, I’ll do what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need

And this time I’ll get it right
Yeah this time I’ll get it right
It’s gonna be this time I’ll get it right
Oh God let it be this time I get it right

So I’m cutting that branch off the cherry tree
I’m singing this will be my victory then I…
I see them coming after me

And they’re following me across the sea
And now they’re stinging my friends and my family and I…
I don’t know why this is happening

But I’ll do what I want, I’ll do what I please
I’ll do it again till I got what I need

I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees ’cause I…
I want honey on my table
