jam of the day

jam of the day – day 153

first of all – i have an extremely diverse, eclectic taste in music. and what speaks to me, might not speak to you, and this applies to both the message and the music itself. you may like it, you may not like it… either way, i encourage you to emerge out of your comfort zone and give it a listen — you might find something you never knew you liked.

this song has very much been a mainstay in a library of jams i keep on  heavy rotation, as are other certain songs that are always guaranteed to deliver specific moods.

i’ve been listening to alkaline trio for around 14 years now and it is safe to say they played a huge part in shaping the person i am today. (fyi – i was most certainly one of those “scene” kids back in the MySpace days, and listened to more than my fair share of pop-punk, post-hardcore, and screamo bands.) i’ve long since grown out of that phase, but not outgrown alot of bands and songs from that time period.

anyway, i hope you enjoy this version of this song, and i’ll post the lyrics below. since i quit drinking, this song has taken on a whole different meaning.

what songs are you currently listening to? i’d love to know.

It’s about time that I came clean with you
I’m no longer fine, I’m no longer running smooth
I thought that I’d found myself onto something new
Just one more line I repeat over and over again

‘Til I’m blue in the face with a choking regret
As I talk in circles ’round you on my bed
Can’t say I blamed you one bit when you kept it all inside
When you left that night

It’s about time that you got sick of me
No longer fun and so far from interesting
I thought that I found me a cure for feeling old
Just one more line to keep me sleeping loudly and cold

In disgrace with a shameful regret
As I speak in tongues to myself in my bed
Can’t say I blamed you one bit when you kept it all inside
When you left that night

And all that followed fell like mercury to hell
Somehow we lost our heads for the last time
And all that followed fell like mercury to hell
Somehow we lost our heads for the last time

And I don’t dream since I quit sleeping
No I haven’t slept since I met you

And you can’t breathe without coughing at daytime
Neither can I so what do you say?
Your coffin or mine?
