Music Monday: Are You Ready To Live by Dream State #MusicMonday #dreamstate #areyoureadytolive #Rock #Metal #Alternative #Brilliant #Catchy #Cover #melodic #Unique

Music Monday is a tag that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday. It is a great opportunity to offer up your favourite music for everyone to listen too and cheer them up on the worst day of the week.

I thought a little bit of Dream State might energise and inspire this week. It was between this song and Primrose which is equally awesome and compelling. I picked this one because of it’s message, especially it’s connection to our current state of affairs. There are is some spectacular music being created during the pandemic (I know this song wasn’t written during) and it really helps lift up our disheartened spirits.

Are You Ready To Live by Dream State

Are You Ready To Live Lyrics

It’s easier said than done
Caught between right and wrong
Life is short though, you know?
Yeah
Sometimes you’ve got to pick yourself up
You can’t spend forever in that rut
Sometimes you’ve got to do it alone
When there’s no one else to take the load
And bring you home
And bring you home
Sometimes it can get real hard
Spending most of those days in the dark
Life feels like it’s pulling apart from the seams
And it seems like there’s nothing
So what we gonna do with all that pain?
And what we gonna do with this path we have made?
And it’s easy just to walk away
And wait it out, but I can’t wait it out not anymore
I’ll make this life mean something before I end up dead
I’ll find the things that I love, let them kill me instead
We’ll make it out of the trench, we’ll fight our way to the end
No returns, no regrets
Tired and distraught
You’ve got to get up off of the floor
I know you are alone but honey, we all are
Can you hear life is calling?
Feel it under your skin
The unknown drawing you close, working its way within
It’s been with us from the start
Shows its face through our hearts
So let us take a stand and speak for the ones, the ones who can’t
Are you ready to live, are you ready to live?
Are you ready to fight?
I’ll make this life mean something before I end up dead
I’ll find the things that I love, let them kill me instead
We’ll make it out of the trench, we’ll fight our way to the end
No returns, no regrets
It’s easier said than done, easier to sit than to run
Life is short and full of storms
Take the bull by the horns and let’s ignite that fire inside
Let’s live our lives, live our lives
We’ve got to try, we’ve got to try
Are you ready for the ride?
Are you ready for the ride of your life?
We’ll figure it out before we get out
Yeah
Sometimes you’ve got to pick yourself up
(Home)
You can’t wait around for good luck
You’ve got to pull yourself together, ’cause the hard times aren’t forever
Let’s bring it home
No returns, no regrets

I appreciate everyone coming by to check out what music I have been thinking about recently. I think Dream State is one of the most intense and exciting bands I have listened to in quite a while. I have so many of their songs I want to share here but I will spread them out as much as I can. I imagine the next one will be a part of the Linkin Park covers series I am thinking about putting together. Anyway I hope you enjoyed the song and have a great week.
