Of Mice and Men – Earth and Sky

Headbang berjamaaah lah pokokna. Ada yang lagunya full scream, ada yang campur sing-a-long, menyenangkan pada intinya mah. Untuk menemani di perjalanan, sambil main game, sambil kompetisi, sambil olahraga, beuh asoy melehoy tambah semangat. lirik earth and sky

Album dibuka dengan lagu berjudul ‘Gravedancer’ yang intronya agak bernuansa etnik, gak mau ketinggalan sama Shanti Shanti Shanti Babymetal, hehe, tapi beda koq, ini mah full SCREEAAAMMMM, DISTORSIIII, HEADBANGER dan smack down AAARRGGHH!!! (teringat acara Smackdown dulu kala).

Ini album dimulai dengan strong, finish juga strong! How To Survive yang pertama kali diperkenalkan sebagai single album ternyata menjadi track penutup album, tau sendiri kan itu lagu Full Scream kaga ada nyanyinya, tapi kita bisa tereak bareng (apalagi kata-kata di ujung liriknya, hihihi).


Lirik Lagu Of Mice and Men Album Earth and Sky

Gravedancer
Yeah, slowly sinking‚ headed for disaster
Filling our lungs while we’re circling the drain
Over and over
Around and around we go
Standing at the precipice of calamity
Just one step from the edge

In the end it makes no difference
In the end it makes no difference
‘Cause we’re all hypnotized by the siren’s call

Then the song begins to play
As we dance around the grave
As we dance around the grave

Slowly sinking‚ headed for disaster
A sacrifice of self-destruction
Around and around again
To celebrate the end

Then the song begins to play
As we dance around the grave
Knowing we will never change
We keep on dancing ’round the grave
Around and around the grave

Around and around and around again
To celebrate the end
I’ll dance around this grave
Until it calls my name

As We Suffocate
Yeah, you spend your life trapped inside a machine
Victimized by the calamity
You blur the lines, create your reality
Swear you’re awake, but you know you’re asleep

There’s no rebuilding
When the temple comes crashing down
It’s your burden to carry and your back to break

Hollow eyes staring as we suffocate
We’re drunk on death and high on fire
It’s not enough to satiate
Until the whole world burns away
Until the whole world burns away

Detonate and prosper
Corrode and bathe yourself in gold
Throw away forever
To become eternal

Hollow eyes staring as we suffocate (As we suffocate)
We’re drunk on death and high on fire
It’s not enough to satiate
Until the whole world burns away
Until the whole world burns away
Until the whole world burns away

Until the whole world burns away
Until the whole world burns away
Until the whole world burns away
Burns away
Burns away
Burns away
Burns away

Drunk on death and high on fire

Taste of Regret
You’re wretched, spewing venom
In every single lie that you tell
Feigning all emotion when facing the consequence of your own personal hell
And there’s no angel left to blame
When the devil on your shoulder who made you bolder
Is the one laughing in your face
What goes around comes around someday

And every time I think about the words you’ve said
I’m reminded just to bite my tongue instead
Until every last lyric’s left covered in red
Because the taste of blood is
Better than the taste, better than the taste of regret

So while you’re spitting into the hurricane
Trying to get rid of the bitterness
The acid from your tongue begins to erode again
While you sit and reminisce
So deep inside your own abyss
There is no feeling of misery like living in history
When you’ve been so poisonous
Karma comes back to sink its fangs right in your neck

And every time I think about the words you’ve said
I’m reminded just to bite my tongue instead
Until every last lyric’s left covered in red
Because the taste of blood is
Better than the taste, better than the taste of regret

(Better than the taste of regret)
Nothing can change the past, no
And time can’t and won’t unshatter the glass
What goes around comes around someday

And every time I think about the words you’ve said (Words you’ve said)
I’m reminded just to bite my tongue instead
Until every last lyric’s left covered in red (Red)
‘Cause the taste of blood is
Better than the taste, better than the taste of regret

Mushroom Cloud
Go

Yeah, have you ever felt the chains of life around your wrist?
When it shoves the grenade right in your mouth, then pulls the pin?
And do you really know just what it’s like to never fucking sleep?
Or what it’s like to remind yourself that
The voices don’t pull the strings?

They’re not real to you, but they’re real to me
I know I’m spiraling, I’m just waiting to detonate

Three, two, one, boom
Countdown to insanity
Three, two, one, boom
Ignite the fuse and immolate
Three, two, one, boom
I’ve got a mind like a mushroom cloud
I’ll either perish in the flames or be frozen in the fallout

Can someone sound the alarm?
Can someone sound the alarm?
This is not a test, this is not a test
I repeat this is not a test

Does anyone hear the screaming
From the Trojan horse burning inside of my head?
If hell is really empty
Then maybe the demons found a home in there instead

They’re not real to you, but they’re real to me
And they set my mind ablaze every time that I detonate

Three, two, one, boom
Countdown to insanity
Three, two, one, boom
Ignite the fuse and immolate
Three, two, one, boom
I’ve got a mind like a mushroom cloud
I’ll either perish in the flames or be frozen in the fallout

I am in control, I am in control
I am in control, I am in control
I am in control, I am in control
I am in control, I am in control
I am in control, I am in control
But where do you hide
When the thoughts running through your mind trip?
Where do you hide
When the thoughts running through your head trip the landmine?
Boom
Boom

I’ve got a mind like a mushroom cloud
I’ve got a mind like a mushroom cloud
Boom

Pieces
One by one
I  watch them crumble
Every  last conviction
Degenerated into the air
The sickness that plagues the valley
Has  begun infecting
Spreading  its way up to the peak

Now it’s coming
For  what’s left of me
Yeah, it’s coming
For what’s left of me

The pieces keep on falling away
Disappearing  as I disintegrate
Can someone wake me from this dream?
The pieces keep on falling away, away, away
As I disintegrate

The price I pay
For laying on the blade
Has me withering
I fall to pieces every day

It’s coming
For the rest of us
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

The pieces keep on falling away
Disappearing as I disintegrate
Can someone wake me from this dream?
The pieces keep on falling away, away, away
As I disintegrate

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
The same fate for all of us
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
The same fate for all of us

The pieces keep on falling away
Disappearing as I disintegrate
Can someone wake me from this dream?
The pieces keep on falling away, away, away
As I disintegrate

Deceiver/Deceived
Go!
Deceiver and deceived

Do you believe everything you hear
Or is it only what you see?
Is everything really black and white
Or is it all a shade of grey?

Tell me
Is your head in the clouds
Or buried underground?

Lie, deny, evade
And bend the truth
Until it starts to break (Distort reality)
So fake, persuade, betray
Then tell yourself that everyone’s to blame
Deceiver and deceived
Deceiver and deceived
(Deceiver and deceived)

Have you been sold the river full of gold?
The castle on the hill of sand?
Do you now see the forest for the trees
Or do you keep falling for the sleight of hand?

Tell me
Is your head in the clouds
Or buried underground?

Lie, deny, evade
And bend the truth
Until it starts to break (Distort reality)
So fake, persuade, betray
Then tell yourself that everyone’s to blame
Deceiver and deceived

Truth is not relative
Truth is absolute
To reject truth is a choice
And every choice has a consequence
Go!

Is your head in the clouds
Or buried underground?

Lie, deny, evade
Fake, persuade, betray
Lie, deny, evade
And bend the truth
Until it starts to break (Distort reality)
So fake, persuade, betray
Then tell yourself that everyone’s to blame (Distort reality)
Deceiver and deceived

Earth and Sky
I felt you dragging me into a shallow grave
The dirt became a place to rest, but it betrays
You’ll never stop me, your reign has ended
You’ll never hold down that which has ascended
(That which has ascended)

I won’t run, I won’t turn away
I won’t let you get the best of me
I won’t fall in your gravity
Open your eyes
You’re the earth and I’m the sky

You are a single stone amongst infinity
I am the wind that blows, I am the voice inside the rain
Can you feel the cold wind blowing
Unrelenting, everlasting?
Do you feel it in your bones?
Do you feel it in your soul?

I won’t run, I won’t turn away
I won’t let you get the best of me
I won’t fall in your gravity
Open your eyes
I won’t run (Run), I won’t turn away
I won’t let you get the best of me
I won’t fall (Fall) in your gravity
Open your eyes
You’re the earth and I’m the sky

You’re the earth and I’m the sky
You’re the earth and I’m the sky
You’re the earth and I’m the sky
You’re the earth and I’m the sky

The Mountain
I took my heart in my hands
And placed it inside the mountain
Because I can’t stand to think
That the strongest roots won’t
Save you when the bough breaks

I count the days on my hands
That I’ve sat inside this mountain
And watched the world decay
Beaten by the wind and fire and rain

Plagues and pestilence, they fill my head
Trapped in the finality of every end
When every tear shed becomes a sea
For you to sink in

You have the same disease
And the contagion spreads
The same disease (The same disease) as me
The curse of empathy
The curse of empathy

All hail the mountain
Cold and callous
Bastion of blood and stone
All hail the mountain
Alter and antidote

You have the same disease
And the contagion spreads
The same disease (The same disease) as me
The curse of empathy
The curse of empathy
The curse of empathy

Have I just become a monolith
Somewhere in between gallant and grotesque?
Well, I could never find peace in emptiness
With these drums of war pounding in my chest
Pounding in my chest
We’re not concerned, just mad

I refuse to come down
Leave me inside my mountain
Leave me inside my mountain
Leave me inside my mountain
All hail the mountain
Alter and antidote
All hail the mountain
Alter and antidote

Meltdown
I watched you burn every bridge
Then blame the smoke for your eyes burning
You can turn out the lights and stand real still
But the world keeps turning

And we all breakdown in the meltdown

Are we building it up to tear it back down
Or are we spinning in place?
Does solidarity lie in the meltdown
Or is it just too late?

I know the past has a sting
But here’s the thing, you can’t replace it
So just know, I’ll either make amends or I will raise the dead
And to me, it’s all the same

And we all breakdown in the meltdown

Are we building it up to tear it back down
Or are we spinning in place?
Does solidarity lie in the meltdown
Or is it just too late?

And we all breakdown in the meltdown
And to me, it’s all the same, oh
And to me, it’s all the same

Are we building it up to tear it back down?
To tear it back down?
To tear it back down?

Are we building it up to tear it back down
Or are we spinning in place?
Does solidarity lie in the meltdown
Or is it just too late?

(It’s all the same)
Just too late?
(It’s all the same)
Is it just too late?
(And we all breakdown in the meltdown)

Linger
Some things are unending
Persisting, pushing us to break
And I am done, I am done, I am done
Pretending I’m not drowning in its wake

Because time passes by
Just like rain falling through my fingers
And though night becomes the day
And seasons change
The pain, it always lingers
It never goes away

The light is warm, but the shadow remains
In cracks in the pavement and lines in your face
And I am done, I am done, I am done
Pretending this will ever go away

But time passes by
Just like rain falling through my fingers
And though night becomes the day
And seasons change
The pain, it never goes away
Yeah, time passes by
Just like rain falling through my fingers
And though night becomes the day
And seasons change
The pain, it always lingers

I hope wherever you are
That you’re finally free
I hope you’ve found your peace

The grief’s like a wave
There’s love in the pain
You’ll know where your heart is
When you feel it break
When loss is a shipwreck
And sadness a sea
Hearts of gold and stone all sink
The grief’s like a wave
There’s love in the pain
You’ll know where your heart is
When you feel it break
When loss is a shipwreck
And sadness a sea
Hearts of gold and stone all sink

Time passes by
Just like rain falling through my fingers
And though night becomes the day
And seasons change
The pain, it never goes away
Yeah, time passes by
Just like rain falling through my fingers
And though night becomes the day
And seasons change
The pain, it always lingers

How To Survive
They look down from their ivory tower
At a world they never really knew
They light their torches and draw their arrows
They’re on the hunt, and tonight the prey is you

But I can show you what it’s like

What it’s like to be hated
What it’s like to be degraded
What it’s like to be a target
But have skin as thick as steel
I’ll show you how to bring chaos
I’ll show you how to be dangerous
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I’ll show you how to survive, oh

And now you’ve seen from behind the veil
Kings, knights, and pawns all bleed the same
I refuse to be one of the fallen
I refuse to be one of the slain

And I can show you what it’s like

What it’s like to be hated
What it’s like to be degraded
What it’s like to be a target
But have skin as thick as steel
I’ll show you how to bring chaos
I’ll show you how to be dangerous
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I’ll show you how to survive, oh

I’ll show you how to survive
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I’ll show you how to survive
I’ll show you how to survive, yeah
I, I refuse to be one of the fallen
I, I refuse to be one of the slain

But I can show you what it’s like

What it’s like to be hated
What it’s like to be degraded
What it’s like to be a target
But have skin as thick as steel
I’ll show you how to bring chaos
I’ll show you how to be dangerous
In a world that teaches an eye for an eye
I’ll show you how to survive
