Three-Day Lyrical Challenge Tag| Day 1

So, I’ve seen this around and have been hoping to be tagged (no shame!), so I was very excited when Sara tagged me to do it! WARNING: My favorite type of music most of you will not like, but give it a try!


The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

So, for those of you who somewhat know me, you know that I love rock music, and no, I don’t mean alternative. Especially after growing up on AC/DC, Metallica, and Iron Maiden, how could I not? Eventually learning guitar didn’t help, either. Most people like or relate to a song based on the lyrics. Me, being the weirdo that I am, actually prefer a great guitar, and usually pay absolutely no attention to lyrics whatsoever (which has led to confusion when a guy sends me a cute lyric song) haha.

Those of you who also know me, know that I am also super supportive of the military. Don’t bash them in front of me or you will regret it! haha What I really like about the lyrics of the song (yes, I do sometimes listen) is that it alludes to war and those serving. Never giving up and fighting for what you believe in.

We’ll wear out scars like medals of hope

With that said, I feel like it applies directly to each and every one of us. We all have “scars” that have affected us, and probably, in most cases, have made us better people because of them. We wouldn’t be who we are today without them. But, like with wearing our “scars” like “medals of hope”, we can use these bad things to help make us better people. Which is also why I have the above quote tattooed on my ribs. 🙂

Speaking of tattoos, Alex Varkatzas, lead singer of Atreyu, actually is a tattoo artist! So, one of my life goals is to get a tattoo by him and FINALLY go to one of their concerts.

Resolute a stance of defiance
Always teetering on the bring
Nothing can hold you back when
When you’re not holding back a thing
Open arms (we) embrace tomorrow
Closed fists, tarnishing today
We’re not afraid to open our mouths and scream
We believe in what we say
Like a whisper to the dusk
An oath against the shadows
Denying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’til the break of dawn
Like a prayer unto the dawn
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’till the break of dawn
Covered in sweat and blood
Yet still out heads held high
Actions have consequences
When you life for foolish pride
Been careful not to lose ourselves
Stand together one passion one hate
We believe in a better tomorrow
We believe in what we say
Like a whisper to the dusk
An oath against the shadows
Denying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’til the break of dawn
Like a prayer unto the dawn
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’till the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’till the break of dawn
We’ll fight out battles we’ll wage our wars
Settle the scores with honor and blood
We’ll wear out scars like medals of hope
Like medals of hope
Like medals of hope
We’ll fight out battles we’ll wage our wars
Settle the scores with honor and blood
We’ll wear out scars like medals of hope
Like medals of hope
Like medals of hope
Like a whisper to the dusk
An oath against the shadows
Denying the dark
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’til the break of dawn
Like a prayer unto the dawn
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk)
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk)
In arms against the shadows
Destroying the dark (whisper to the dusk )
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’till the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’till the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’till the break of dawn
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT ’till the break of dawn
