Music Monday: Failure by Breaking Benjamin

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

Wait, wait, wait. How the fuck I never had a Breaking Benjamin song picked for Music Monday?? And I claim myself to be a Breaking Benjamin fan *sigh* I should give back my badge or something. This love story started around 2007-2008 maybe. I don’t quite remember how I found them honestly, but they pretty soon became a favourite. It’s been a huge dream of mine to see them live and in 2017 Lady Luck smiled at me when they finally visited Hungary for the first time. I had to sacrifice my soul and purchase a fucking expensive daily ticket to Sziget Festival, but at that point I would have spent any amount of money just for the opportunity. Luckily their show was held on a smaller stage, and since I arrived quite early, I could find a spot near the first line. Later the person who stood before me left (hey, there are idiots everywhere *shrug*) and so this is how I ended up about 2 metres from the stage and my idol. That was a damn fine concert too, though his voice couldn’t be heard as much as I would have liked. Anyway, that night is still one of my favourite memories.

I suspect one of the reasons I didn’t feature Breaking Benjamin yet is that it’s damn hard to pick only one song. In the end I went with Failure, because it goes with my recent mood.

 

Lyrics

Life will come our way
It has only just begun
The world will die alone
The frail will fall below

Time will take our place
We return it back to one
The calm before the cold
The long and lonely road

Look for the light that leads me home

Tired of feeling lost, tired of letting go
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down
Failure

Drive the cloud away
We will fall from last to none
The dark before the dawn
The world will carry on

Look for the light that leads me home

Tired of feeling lost, tired of letting go
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down
Tired of wasted breath, tired of nothing left
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down
Failure

Tired of feeling lost, tired of letting go
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down
Tired of wasted breath, tired of nothing left
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down

We bury the sunlight, we bury the sunlight
Failure! Failure
We bury the sunlight, we bury the sunlight
Failure! Failure

Failure
