Welcome to the New Age

Heard this song used in the trailer of Assassin’s Creed III. I had to find it right away.

Radioactive
Imagine Dragons

I’m waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I’m breathing in the chemicals
I’m breaking in, shaping up, checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive

I raise my flags, don my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’ll paint it red to fit right in
Whoa
I’m breaking in, shaping up, checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive

All systems go, sun hasn’t died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I’m radioactive, radioactive

Every Breath

Boyce Avenue

It sounds like this is nothing new and that it hasn’t been for awhile
You wake up on the other side and you strain to force a smile
The fairytale inside your head has become your new best friend
But I can assure you, that I’ll be there before the story ends

‘Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me, you’ll be the only light I see

I’m racing to the finish line of a lifetime that’s barely started
The piece of mind I left behind, I pray you keep in your perfect garden
You waited on the minute hand and the countdown to last for days
But I’m here to tell you, it won’t be long before I’m here to stay

‘Cause when I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me, you’ll be the only light I see

The weightlessness and the lack of rest
Away from you, I’m in over my head
Even when it’s dark before the dawn
I will feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me, you’ll be the only light I see

When I needed a place to hang my heart
You were there to wear it from the start
And with every breath of me, you’ll be the only light I see

Even when it’s dark before the dawn
I will feel your grace and carry on
And with every breath of me, you’ll be the only light I see
The only light I see

I’ll be your Lighthouse

It’s the weekend again and you know what that means! Time to relax! Enjoy what life has to offer us. Today’s song is about helping those who are lost… to be there for them so they find their way back home.

To all who need guidance out there, I’ll be your…

Lighthouse by Anthem Lights

Like ships bound for shipwreck
Most people just simply drift along
And miss their destination without knowing anything is wrong
No direction and without a care
Feels so good and then you’re lost out there
Don’t you remember how it felt ‘til someone showed you the way

It’s up to you, it’s up to me
To be the lighthouse
They should know they’re not alone
So shine so they can see the lighthouse
And find their way back home

Tragically we’ve forgotten
The reason we’re even here at all
Worst still, we remember it’s just that we feel so comfortable
Do we notice, do we even care
All the people that are lost out there
Don’t you remember how it felt ‘til someone showed you the way

It’s up to you, it’s up to me
To be the lighthouse
They should know they’re not alone
So shine so they can see the lighthouse
And find their way back home

So climb to the highest point
Scream in your loudest voice
There’s a lifeline waiting for you
Strike up the brightest fire
Fan the flames and let it burn
Just let it burn, the world is waiting

It’s up to you, it’s up to me
They should know they’re not alone
So shine so they can see the lighthouse
And find their way

It’s up to you, it’s up to me
To be the lighthouse
They should know they’re not alone
So shine so they can see the lighthouse
And find their way back home

Trouble Sleeping?

As do I… everyday, in fact.

I recommend you listen to calming music. You know, those nature or environment music you hear at spas and massage centers. However, there are alternatives  as well. I’ve discovered that video and PC games often contain awesome soundtracks – from rock to pop to soft music and outright great musical scores. So here’s one that is both calming and engaging. It’s from the most recent installment of the Heroes of Might and Magic franchise.
