“Serve you up a glass of my troubled wine”


As soon as my feet hit the floor this morning, I had some guitar sliding in my head…

“What don’t kill you make you more strong”…


I know exactly where this one comes from and why it’s stuck in my nugget this morning.

Enjoy.

 

You rise, you fall, you’re down then you rise again
What don’t kill you make you more strong
You rise, you fall, you’re down then you rise again
What don’t kill you make you more strong

Rise, fall, down, rise again
What don’t kill you make you more strong
Rise, fall, down, rise again
What don’t kill you make you more strong

Through black days
Through black nights
Through pitch black insides

Breaking your teeth on the hard life coming
Show your scars
Cutting your feet on the hard earth running
Show your scars
Breaking your life, broken, beat and scarred
But we die hard

The dawn, the death, the fight to the final breath
What don’t kill you make you more strong
The dawn, the death, the fight to the final breath
What don’t kill you make you more strong

Dawn, death, fight, final breath
What don’t kill you make you more strong
Dawn, death, fight, final breath
What don’t kill you make you more strong

They scratch me
They scrape me
They cut and rape me

Breaking your teeth on the hard life coming
Show your scars
Cutting your feet on the hard earth running
Show your scars
Breaking your life, broken, beat and scarred
But we die hard

Breaking your teeth on the hard life coming
Show your scars
Cutting your feet on the hard earth running
Show your scars
Bleeding your soul in a hard luck story
Show your scars
Spilling your blood in the hot sun’s glory
Show your scars
Breaking your life, broken, beat and scarred
We die hard
We die hard
We die hard

“An example must be set”…


When the alarm went off at 0345 this morning, I had the spoken intro in my head:

“Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward
Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both
For a wounded man shall say to his assailant
“If I live, I will kill you. If I die, you are forgiven”
Such is the rule of honor”

Since then, it’s been the driving beat and raspy\growling vocals. Ah yes…

 

 

“I was a willow last night in my dream”…


Certainly an improvement over the last few days!

I also had “Magic Man” and “Dreamboat Annie”, but this one was “playing” the loudest. I can’t say I was disappointed to have this one stuck in my noggin.

Released in 1975, I guess this would certainly qualify as “classic rock”. Some of their stuff in the mid-to-late ’80s was a bit odd but was also pretty popular. It’s their early stuff that really rocks though.

And Ann’s voice… What a range and so powerful!
