Music Monday: I Will Not Bow 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

It’s not much of a secret that Breaking Benjamin is my favourite band. And if I was hard pressed to pick a favourite song from then, then it most likely would be I Will Not Bow. It’s pretty much my mantra when I’m angry, distraught, frustrated and much more. This song reminds me to never give up, to not let anyone stand in my way. That I should never bow to anyone unless that’s my will. It helps to turn my anger to focus on the things I need to focus on. It pretty much kept me sane last week. It’s a great song for writing as well. Just saying.

Lyrics

Fall

Now the dark begins to rise
Save your breath, it’s far from over
Leave the lost and dead behind
Now’s your chance to run for cover

I don’t want to change the world
I just wanna leave it colder
Light the fuse and burn it up
Take the path that leads to nowhere

All is lost again
But I’m not giving in

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away

Fall

Watch the end through dying eyes
Now the dark is taking over
Show me where forever dies
Take the fall and run to Heaven

All is lost again
But I’m not giving in

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I’ll survive, paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I am not proud, cold-blooded fake
I will shut the world away

Open your eyes!

I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I’ll survive; paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I am not proud, cold-blooded fake
I will shut the world away

Fall!
