Music Monday: Last Resort by Papa Roach.

MusicMonday

Welcome once again toย Music Mondayย where I offer you all a song that I really like. If anyone wants to join in then please feel free to have a go!ย ๐Ÿ™‚

I had another song scheduled for today but decided to reschedule that tune and post this one instead as it sums up perfectly how I am feeling today! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

It’s the classic Papa Roach nu-metal tune Last Resort from their 2000 album Infest.

Papa Roach: Last Resort.

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
This is my last resort

Cut my life into pieces
I’ve reached my last resort
Suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
Do you even care if I die bleeding?

Would it be wrong? Would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation out of sight
And I’m contemplating suicide

‘Cause I’m losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine

I never realized I was spread too thin
‘Til it was too late and I was empty within
Hungry, feeding on chaos and living in sin
Downward spiral, where do I begin?

It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself and no love for another
Searching to find a love upon a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils

‘Cause I’m losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine

Nothing’s alright, nothing is fine

I’m running and I’m crying
I’m crying, I’m crying
I’m crying, I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort,
Suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding

Would it be wrong? Would it be right?
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation out of sight
And I’m contemplating suicide

‘Cause I’m losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine

Nothing’s alright, nothing is fine

I’m running and I’m crying
I can’t go on living this way

Can’t go on, living this way, nothing’s alright

Taken from the albums Infest (2000) and To Be Loved: The Best of Papa Roach (2010).

    1. It’s played quite a lot in the UK on a couple of music channels. Especially when they are doing a nu-metal list. It’s a song I’ve always liked, didn’t realise it was quite so old though, 2000! And the lyrics are rather apt for my misery today.๐Ÿ˜‚

  1. Sorry you are feeling so shitty. I actually played this album this morning because it fit my mood so there we go again! I love Papa Roach, solid band with some great tunes, especially the older stuff.

  2. This is one of my favorite songs ever. It’s perfect for when you’re in a shitty mood. (I’ve always liked Papa Roach. They’re coming here in the Spring and the tickets are cheap, so I’m going to go see them.)
