Blinded – Third Eye Blind

Feeling a bit nostalgic here guys so let me share one of my favorites.

I wish I have the same song writing prowess like that bastard Stephan Jenkins (no offense man, this song struck familiar chords within me. Great song, melody and all just fuckin’ perfect!)

Throw in the fast paced alternative music, lyrics written with the heart and angst, and it would guarantee to destroy your day (borrowing the words of an awesome awesome blogger friend Lenny).

So what else can I say? Nothing much really. So for those who made it too complicated for them and their love ones, and for those wishing for a second chance that’s very unlikely to be granted, this is guaranteed to make you kill yourself wishing for yesterday.

You’re welcome 🙂

Blinded (lyrics taken from metrolyrics.com)

Just an old friend coming over now to visit you and
That’s what I’ve become
I let myself in though I know I’m not supposed to but
I never know when I’m done

And I see you fogging up the mirror
Vapor round your body glistens in the shower
And I want to stay right here and go down on you for an hour
Or stay, and let the day just fade away
In wild dedication, take the moment of hope
And let it run, and never look back at all the damage we have done now
To each other

Cause when I see you, it’s like I’m staring down the sun
And I’m blinded
There’s nothing left to do
Still I see you

I never believed that things they happen for a reason and
They never go as planned
I wanted to thank you for a vision that was lost that you returned but
You’re passed where you understand

Now her appetite is blown, little else is known
Except she’s a little angry, grabs a towel and looks away
And the heat fades with the day
And I fall down on what to say
Oh something clean let me be clever
Hey oh well whatever
But that’s not what I mean
When where we’ve been has left us burned
Still I won’t turn now from a fight you know I’ll never win

So when I see you, you know all the things I’ve done
Well I’m blinded
Like I’m staring down the sun
When I see you
It’s like I’m staring down the sun

Time passes and it tells us what we’re left with
We become the things we do
Me I’m a fool, spent from defiance, yeah you got me but
I didn’t give up on you

Icarus is not a tee shirt or a swan song, no
He is born again and it’s not easy being me
But I can’t promise I will mend or bend
When you believe that we are fixed now from our birth
And I’ve just fallen back to earth
Still you know I’ll try again
Cause I believe that we are lucky
We are golden we have stolen manners
In the days we were one

So when I see you, despite all that we’ve become
I’m still blinded
But I’m staring down the sun
When I see you
I’m blinded

Stolen

You’re one heck of a thief my lady –

You came not in the dead of the night but in broad day light;

Not when my senses are dead but when they’re on full alert;

You came not in secret, you walked in through the front door.

 

I never noticed you at first –

But then you just started doing your thing, when you’re just being you:

…when you flaunt your smile

…when your eyes laugh

…when your hair is caught in the morning breeze

…when the air reminds me of your lovely scent and your presence

 

That’s when I started to lose things because you take them away one by one –

First you stole my glances

Next you took my attention

After that, my smile…

 

And then,

 

This throbbing thing within my chest…

 

I have become an object of robbery.

I’ve finally fallen prey

I finally have fallen for you

 

“For

you

have

stolen

my

heart…”

Vela Blue-chan, Boku wa Suki Da to Sakebitai!

Iba talaga ang dating ng chic na marunong mag rock en roll.

Bukod sa cool na cool ito ay may taste syang astig na hinding-hindi maluluma.

At ang mas nakaka-inlove ay yung kumportable sya sa sarili nya at nage-enjoy siya sa kanyang ginagawa.

Gaya nalang ni Vela Blue na wala kang magagawa kundi ngumanga at humanga habang hinahataw niya ang drums sa tugtog ng Slamdunk anime opening song na “Kimi Ga Suki Da to Sakebitai” na ayon sa mga translations ay “I want to shout I love you.”

Ang galing ng pagkakabalanse nya ng kanyang pagiging chic at rocker.

Lalo na habang ngumingiti siya ng isang pamatay na ngiti at lumalabas ang kanyang mga dimples ay talaga naman brad!

Pero kung may pagkakataon nga din lang ako ay di ko lang isisigaw ang “I love you Vela Blue!”

Yayakapin ko pa siya.

“She Would’ve Been Here If She Did Love Me”

I don’t know why there is this huge impact of this song to me. I first heard this when I was in junior high school (which was almost two decades now) when the pangs of love missed my heart and went right straight to my balls (Damn! Now I know why love can hurt so much!)

Maybe because I was hoping that Donna (my first love) would dedicate it to me back then. Or that she would tell me the exact same words in the chorus which never happened anyway. Or maybe I romanticized about it all that much.

Or maybe I wont ever know exactly why.

But the lyrics still sticking in my brains after almost 20 years and the message still poignant as when I first heard it? Man, that is way beyond crazy. And that craziness seemed to have resided permanently in me!!

In Denial

And when you do hear that I’m still in love with you, it’s not me. It’s the tequila, the Red Horse Beer, any spirit or anything under the sun for that matter. But whoever or whatever it is, it’s not me.

Who me? Still in love with you?! Oh come on honey you know better than that! I loved you back then but that was before. It was over the moment you told me that we’re done.

And no, I’m not missing you.

You were a princess with a smiling face and a katana on hand who carved a big ugly scar in my heart. You left it dilapidated but that’s ok, I can live with that.

Please don’t assume you’re seeing tears. If you see my bloodshot eyes, it’s because I haven’t had enough sleep last night because I watched hell lot of movies that I missed when we’re together. Or, I’ve been out with the guys on a party I chose to turn down because I chose you. No I’m not blaming you for that decision I made. It’s me and I made that choice.

And don’t ever expect to see tears in my eyes if it’s raining hard ok? You’ll more likely see cats and dogs, even in the drizzle. But tears? No way sir.

And when you do hear that I’m still in love with you, it’s not me. It’s the tequila, the Red Horse Beer, any spirit or anything under the sun for that matter. But whoever or whatever it is, it’s not me.

By the way, this song’s for you so that you’ll know. I hope it’s now clear baby. No I’m not the one who said I love you just now. It’s that damn spirit ok?!

Kailan? Ngayon Na!

Minsan kelangan lang talaga natin ng konting tulak…

Kelan tayo magbabago mga pre?

…kapag bago na ulit ang administrasyon?

…kapag bahay mo na ang na-raid?

…kapag bumagsak ka na sa exam?

…kapag iniwan ka na nya?

…kapag wala ng natira sayo ultimo sarili mo?

…bukas makalawa?

Teka, bakit ba kelangan mong maghintay muna?

Ang magandang balita: ang pagbabago nagsisimula sa atin. Hindi nakadepende sa kung ano o kung kanino kundi sa atin lang.

At ang mas magandang balita? Pwede na tayong magbago ngayon, ngayon mismong oras na to, sa mismong segundong ito.

Pwedeng-pwede. Posible.

Minsan kelangan lang talaga natin ng konting tulak…

Ngayon Na

Galaw Galaw Galaw
ito na ang iyong araw

Paraiso ang turing dito,
San ka ba lulugar,
San ka ba tutungo

Langit lupa Oh Impyerno,
Tatakas sa Mundo dala ang peligro

Simulan muna ang unang paghinga
Marami tayo at hindi ka na mag-iisa
Pikit ang yong mata, galit sigaw muna
wala nang pipigil, sumama at kumapit ka

ito ang pagkakataon, upang galit ay itapon
wala ng pipigil ngayon, umpisa na ng pag-ahon

Ngayon Na! Itaas ang kamay
Ngayon Na! Hindi na maghihintay
Ngayon Na! Isigaw sa Mundo
Ngayon Na! Ang araw Woooohu Woohh

Ang bawat pawis ay inalay,
Sayong Paglalakbay puno ng kulay
Oh Ang Puso San man patungo
Hindi bumibigay sa hirap ng Buhay

Simulan muna ang unang paghinga
Marami tayo at hindi ka na mag-iisa
Pikit ang yong mata, galit sigaw muna
wala nang pipigil, sumama at kumapit ka

ito ang pagkakataon, upang galit ay itapon
wala ng pipigil ngayon, umpisa na ng pag-ahon

Ngayon Na! Itaas ang kamay
Ngayon Na! Hindi na maghihintay
Ngayon Na! Isigaw sa Mundo
Ngayon Na! Ang araw Woooohu Woohh

Umikot na parang ipu-ipo
Kumilos na parang may delubyo!

Ngayon Na! Itaas ang kamay
Ngayon Na! Hindi na maghihintay
Ngayon Na! Isigaw sa Mundo
Ngayon Na! Ang araw Woooohu Woohh

Umikot na parang ipu-ipo
Kumilos na parang may delubyo!

Trapo

Una kong naisip nung muli kong nabalikan tong kantang to?

Si Jack(ass) Enrile.

Literal tong mga lyrics na to, zero attendance siya sa congress pero consistent siyang congressman sa isang distrito sa Cagayan. Galing di ba?!

“Di na binoboto pero nanalo,
Di na binoboto pero nanalo,
Di na binoboto pero nanalo!!!”

Trapo
Performed by: Yano (Lyrics taken from http://www.letssingit.com)

Jueteng at illegal logging
May sideline, rape at kidnapping
Dealer ng shabu at uzi
Commander ng private army

May ari ng subdivision
Stock holder ng corporation
Landlord na land robber pa
Anak ka ng, bobong tanga!

Ang hirap mong hulihin
Lahat kaya mong bilhin

Wala kang silbe
Wala kang silbe sa amin!

Trapo! trapo ka kasi
Trapo! trapo trapo ka kasi!
2x

Di na binoboto pero nanalo
3x

May misis pero siyam ang kabit
Naadik kaya sabik na sabik
Ang kapal mo! hindi ka manipis
Ginugudtaym mo lang ang aming buwis

Mas maraming absent kesa sa present
Di ginagawa, kanyang assignment
Mula lunes hanggang biyernes

Wala sa congress? panay beauty rest!

Ang sarap mong ihawin! ipalamon sa mga pating
Wala kang silbe!
Wala kang silbe sa amen!

Trapo! trapo ka kasi
Trapo! trapo trapo ka kasi!

Di na binoboto pero nanalo
3x

Daming kalokohan pero napagtatakpan
3x

“We Are One”

Brought to you by the people you love to hate and yet you cannot help but love.

We are not the ones responsible for that though. You’ll still love us anyway and you’d be fooling yourself if you say you wont! 😈 ml/!!!

Destroy [4x]

How can u follow me down through my world that there is nothing for you
U hear me and all the voices around I keep screaming repeating the sound
(Your sick)
If you don’t going down now see your face to the ground
(Your sick)
You keep on pushing me away and it’s not my right
(Your sick)
We think we gonna die now!
Stop wasting time
(Your sick)
And all your lies is on the wall and take control

We are!
The people that you hate
We are!
The one you can’t embrace
We are!
The one you love to hate
But we are one We are one, go

I see the fire in your heart and it kill me deep down inside
It’s gives me all the strength to move on
And you don’t have to tell me what is right
(You sick)
Acting like a lunatic
Have u lost your mind
(Your sick)
Saying all the words you can’t define
And you take much more
(Your sick)
I keep on talking but you don’t replay
And you give it back
(Your sick)
Never ever try to fall me back or else your
Sick

We are!
The people that you hate
We are!
The one you can’t embrace
We are!
The one you love to hate
But we are one We are one, go
Destroy [3x]
We are not the one responsible
We are not the one
We are not the one responsible
We are not the one
We are not the one responsible
We are not the one
We are not the one responsible
We are not the one
We are not the one responsible
We are not the one
We are not the one responsible
We are not the one

We are!
The people that you hate
We are!
The one you can’t embrace
We are!
The one you love to hate
But we are one
We are one, we are one, we are one

Cariño Brutal

I can’t let this week end without sharing the music of one of my favorite local bands that we can be proud of.  Slapshock is one of the best in the world. Our own. Locally brewed. You just need to listen to know.

Walang katulad. Hayo na tayo Slaparmies!!!

 

Cariño Brutal

Performed by: Slapshock (Lyrics taken from lyricsmode.com)

Inukit mo ang dusa’t pasakit
Kung ako sayo wag na wag kang lalapit…
(3x)

Lumuha ang langit umaga’y di sasapit
Umaapoy Lumiliyab ang salitang walang laman
Magulo ang isip laman ng panaginip

Ginapos mo ako sa sarili kong mundo
Sumisigaw [hoy] humihiyaw [hoy]
Yakapin mo ako

Umihip ang hanging papalapit sa akin
Umaasang magiiba ang ikot ng aking mundo
Sugat ay lumalim ako ay palayain

Ginapos mo ako sa sarili kong mundo
Sumisigaw [hoy] humihiyaw [hoy]
Yakapin mo ako
(Repeat)

Ginapos mo. Ginapos mo
Ako… ako… ako…

Inukit mo ang dusa’t pasakit
Kung ako sayo wag na wag kang lalapit…
(3x)

Ginapos mo ako sa sarili kong mundo
Sumisigaw [hoy] humihiyaw [hoy]
Yakapin mo ako
(Repeat)

(When You Do) That Thing You Do

Just be Liv, please, just be… Photo taken from http://www.livtylerwebsite.com

Forget about Tom Hanks and the movie.

This is a reminder to all the ladies to just continue doing what you love to do and to just be yourself. We men, want our lovely ladies to be real, authentic and be just who they really are.

Please stop striving to be a clone, you’re just as perfect.

So whether it’s the unique way you smile with your dimples, the unique way you make others smile and  laugh with your wits, or that simple way you move your hair that make us men jawdrop and all crazed, please don’t stop doing it.

So I will ask you once more to please don’t stop being yourself because you’re awesome being just you. And besides, a man somewhere is dying to see your lovely self the way you are everyday. And somewhere out there, a man is going crazy when you just simply do that thing you do. I do.

Believe me, because when you just do it, we can only utter one word: WOW!

That Thing You Do

Performed by: The Wonders (taken from metrolyrics.com)

You, doing that thing you do
Breaking my heart into
A million pieces, Like you always do
And you, don’t mean to be cruel,
Ya never even knew About the heartache
I’ve been going through,
And I try and try to forget you girl
But it’s just so hard to do
Every time you do that thing you do
I, know all the games you play,
And I’m gonna find a way
To let you know that, You’ll be mine someday
Cause we, could be happy can’t you see?
If you’d only let me be
The one to hold you And keep you here with me
Cause I try and try to forget you girl,
But it’s just so hard to do,
Every time you do that thing you do
I don’t ask a lot girl,
But I know one thing for sure,
It’s your love I haven’t got girl,
And I just can’t take it anymore
Cause we, could be happy, can’t you see?
If you’d only let me be
The one to hold you And keep you here with me
Cause it hurts me so Just to see you go
Around with someone new
And if I know you you’re doing that thing
Every day just doing that thing
And I can’t take you do that thing you do
