It's not who you were, it's who you are.

Dori. Twenty-something. Always something quirky to say. "If they're words from your heart you scream twice as loud." - Dave Grohl

“Monkey Wrench” by Foo Fighters, from the album “The Colour And The Shape”

Still there’s one thing that comforts me,since I was always caged and nowI’M FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
This song is always such a good time live. I have never danced as hard as I have at a Foo show. Especially during All My Life. When Dave screams at you “You motherfuckers want to dance? Come on, let’s fucking dance…NOW!!!!!!!!!!” Oh yeah, you dance. You dance harder than you have ever danced in your life.
Fuck you should have seen me during Bridge Burning at my last show. And Generator?!
I.LOST.MY.SHIT.DURING.GENERATOR. I had wanted to hear it since I was 14 and There Is Nothing Left To Lose came out. I screamed and jumped up and down soooooo hard when I heard the opening starting. I just lost it. That was also the song that I look up and Dave is STARING at me and smiling. And I’m looking back at him and he is still looking at me and then he just nods and runs off toward the mic.
And then I was like IABIFUABIFUB SFOIB FOAI for the rest of the night. I think I was that way the entire night.

The pure force of this song live….dear god. All the older songs really unite the fans and you can just feel all the force from the scream coming out of Dave radiating to you and you scream twice as loud and hard back. Ohhh.. <3

                         FOO FUCKING FIGHTERSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

I’ve seen them twice. Once on the acoustic tour, July 14, 2006 at Community Theater, Berkeley, CA (Funny story, a year to the day later, I was seeing Incubus at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley. Literally a year, it was July 14, 2007. One of the best days of my life. Seriously, that show was MADNESS, but back to Foo.) and I saw the ROCK show February 2, 2008 at Oracle Arena in Oakland,CA.

001…-I equate this song to a friendship I had, it went awry. And this song speaks for itself.-

Keep you in the dark, you know they all pretend. Keep you in the dark, and so it all began. Send in your skeletons, sing as their bones go marching in…again. The need you buried deep, the secrets that you keep are ever ready, are you ready? I’m finished making sense, done pleading ignorance, that whole defense. Spinning infinity, boy, the wheel is spinning me. It’s never ending, never ending. Same old story…What if I say I’m not like the others? What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? You’re the pretender. What if I say I will NEVER surrender? What if I say I’m not like the others? What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? You’re the pretender. What if I say I will NEVER surrender? In time or so I’m told, I’m just another soul for sale…oh, well. The page is out of print, we are not permanent. We are temporary, temporary same old story…What if I say I’m not like the others? What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? You’re the pretender. What if I say I will NEVER surrender? What if I say I’m not like the others? What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? You’re the pretender. What if I say I will NEVER surrender? I’m the voice inside your head, you refuse to hear. I’m the face that you have to face, mirrored in your stare. I’m what’s left, I’m what’s right. I’m the enemy, I’m the hand that will take you down, bring you to your knees. So who are you? Yeah, who are you? Yeah, who are you? YEAH, WHO ARE YOU?! Keep you in the dark, you know they all…pretend…What if I say I’m not like the others? What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? You’re the pretender. What if I say I will NEVER surrender? What if I say I’m not like the others? What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? You’re the pretender. What if I say I will NEVER surrender? What if I say I’m not like the others? (Keep you in the dark) What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? (You know they all…pretend) You’re the pretender, what if I say I will never surrender? What if I say I’m not like the others? (Keep you in the dark) What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays? (You know they all…pretend) You’re the pretender, what if I say I will never surrender? So, who are you? Yeah, who are you? YEAH, WHO ARE YOU?!

002…-This song is me talking to myself and my drug use. Saying goodbye to my former life and doing a damn good job of it.-

Oh, you know I did it, It’s over and I feel fine. Nothing you could say is gonna change my mind. Waited and I waited the longest night, Nothing like the taste to sweet decline. I was down, and I fell, I fell so fast. Dropping like the grains in an hourglass, never say forever 'cause nothing lasts. Dancing with the bones of my buried past. Nevermind there’s nothing I can do…bet your life there’s something killing you…It’s a shame we have to die my dear, no one’s getting out of here alive, this time. What a way to go, but have no fear. No one’s getting out of here alive, this time. I’m Finished, I’m getting you off my chest, made you come clean in a dirty dress. A promise is a promise you kept in check, hard to cross a heart that beats it’s best. Take a good, hard look for the very last time, the very last one in a very long line. Only took a second to say goodbye, been a pleasure but the pleasure’s been mine, all mine. Nevermind there’s nothing I can do…bet your life there’s something killing you…It’s a shame we have to die my dear, no one’s getting out of here alive, this time. What a way to go, but have no fear. No one’s getting out of here alive, this time. Ain’t no way, DOA. Ain’t no way, DOA. Take a good, hard look for the very last time, the very last one in a very long line. Only took a second to say goodbye, been a pleasure but the pleasure’s been mine, all mine. Nevermind there’s nothing I can do…bet your life there’s something killing you…It’s a shame we have to die my dear, no one’s getting out of here alive, this time. What a way to go, but have no fear. No one’s getting out of here alive, this time. It’s a shame we have to disappear, no one’s getting out of here, alive. This time, this time, THIS TIME…

003…-Another song I dedicate to a friendship that has since died. Can’t help the way I feel. Man I fucking love the Foos. The Foos and Incubus man. They equal pure amazingness.-

A heart of gold, but it lost it’s pride. Beautiful veins and bloodshot eyes, I see your face in another light. Why’d you have to go and let it die, Why’d you have to go and let it die. Why’d you have to go and let it die, in too deep and out of time. Why’d you have to go and let it die. A simple man, and his blushing bride (Why’d you have to go and let it die.) intravenous, intertwined. (Why’d you have to go and let it die.) Heart’s gone cold, your hands were tied. (Why’d you have to go and let it die) Why’d you have to go and let it die, Why’d you have to go and let it die. In too deep, and out of time. Why’d you have to go and let it die. Do you ever think of me? You’re so considerate. Did you ever think of me? Oh so considerate. In too deep, and lost in time. Why’d you have to go and let it die. Beautiful veins and bloodshot eyes, why’d you have to go and let it die. Hearts’ gone cold and hands are tied, why’d you have to go and let it die. Why’d you have to go and let it die. Do you ever think of me? You’re so considerate. Did you ever think of me? Oh so considerate. In too deep, and lost in time. Why’d you have to go and let it die. Beautiful veins and bloodshot eyes, why’d you have to go and let it die. Hearts’ gone cold and hands are tied, why’d you have to go and let it die. Why’d you have to go and let this die, why’d you have to go and let this die. Why’d you have to and let this die, why’d you have to go and let this die. Why’d you have to go and LET IT DIE?!

Holy crapola! iTunes and it’s fucking psychic music strikes again!!!

004…-Another song that describes me singing to myself about my drug usage and how I was so fed up and sick of that person.-

I’ve got another confession to make, I’m your fool. Everyone’s got their chains to break, holdin’ you. Were you born to resist or be abused? Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Or are you gone and onto someone new? I needed somewhere to hang my head, without your noose. You gave me something that I didn’t have, but had no use. I was too weak to give in, too strong to lose. My heart is under arrest again, but I’ll break loose. My head is giving me life or death, but I can’t choose. I swear I’ll never give in, I REFUSE. Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Has someone taken your faith? It’s real the pain you feel, you trust, YOU MUST CONFESS! Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Has someone taken your faith? It’s real, the pain you feel. The life, the love, you’d DIE to heal. The hope that starts, the broken hearts. The trust, YOU MUST CONFESS!! Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? I’ve got another confession my friend, I’m no fool. I’m getting tired of starting again, somewhere new.
Were you born to reist or be abused? I swear I’ll never give in, I REFUSE. Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you? Has someone taken your faith? It’s real the pain you feel, you trust, YOU MUST CONFESS! Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

And one more for good measure, since you know, I have lyrics from this song tattooed on me, I’ll post the picture with it ;)

005…-How I feel inside a lot. -

Can you hear me? Hear me screaming? breaking in the muted skies? This thunder heart, like bombs beating, echoing a thousand miles. Mine is yours and yours is mine, there is no divide. In your honor, I would die tonight. Mine is yours and yours is mine, I will sacrifice. In your honor, I would die tonight. For you to feel ALIVE. Can you feel me? Feel me breathing? One last breath before I close my eyes? This suffering for receiving, deliver me into the other side. Mine is yours and yours is mine, there is no divide. In your honor, I would die tonight. Mine is yours and yours is mine, I will sacrifice. In your honor, I would die tonight. For you to feel ALIVE. For you to feel alive, for you to feel alive, FOR YOU TO FEEL ALIVE!!

-One last thing before I quit, I never wanted any more than I could fit into my head. I still remember every single word you said and all the SHIT that somehow came along with it. Still there’s one thing that comforts me, since I was always caged and NOW I’M FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-


A photo from the Foo Fighters show: February 2, 2008. Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA. That show was pure sex, rock and roll, and pure unadulterated SEX! God I loved that show! Like I said I saw the acoustic and the rock Foo shows and I prefer the…ROCK!!!!!
