Rain - Hollywood Undead

I don’t mind, no I don’t mind, I don’t mind the rain

Simple things and subtleties, they always stay the same

I don’t mind, that I don’t mind, no I don’t mind the rain

Like a widow’s heart, we fall apart, but never fade away (fade away)

Run like a child do you know where I came from?

No I don’t, but I’m singing all the same songs

I’m alone, and you’re looking for your anyone

Does it hurt just to know that it’s all gone?

I can feel the pain in the words that you say

Hidden in the letters that were written to no name

Let me be the hands that you hold to your face

'Cause I’d give it all up if I could take it away

Buried in red, white, and a side of some blue

Some will die too late, and somebody too soon

If he could come back, we’ll see what it cost him

We had to lose it all, just to know that we lost one

I am just a shape in the shadow of grates

I am just a voice in the choir of saints

Oh all the souls that nobody could save

And just like a light, we faded away

I don’t mind, no I don’t mind, I don’t mind the rain

Simple things and subtleties, they always stay the same

I don’t mind, that I don’t mind, no I don’t mind the rain

Like a widow’s heart, we fall apart, but never fade away (fade away)

Fade away, as I fade away, away, away

If I could take it all back

Before the flags were forced to wave at half mast

That was long before my heart became black

There’s no way to make it change or go back

You know that some of us grow old, with no homes

Some of us die in a cold house, with no hope

Still surrounded by the people you don’t know, so don’t go

'Cause it’s over the time fades your photo

How many goodbyes can fit in a lifetime?

How many good lies can make it seem alright?

What do you see when you look into my eyes?

Or in the sky right before you say goodnight?

I could be the son that stands beside of your bed

And I could be the voice right inside of your head

I could say goodbye and you know where I went

I just wrote a letter that’ll never be sent

I don’t mind, no I don’t mind, I don’t mind the rain

Simple things and subtleties, they always stay the same

I don’t mind, that I don’t mind, no I don’t mind the rain

Like a widow’s heart, we fall apart, but never fade away (fade away)

Fade away, as I fade away, away, away

As I fade away, away, away

These are examples of personification. The author used them to express a sadness that a widow's heart falls apart and that words cause pain when neither of these are technically possible, because a heart cant "fall apart" without that person dying. And words can't cause any physical pain. The author is trying to give off the presumption of what he feels like.

Glory - Hollywood Undead

Welcome to the world you see

An AK with a couple magazines

Whose blood it is, don't matter to me

Scatter the ashes on the seven seas

That sickness, that feeling inside you

That's weakness, don't let it divide you

Keep this, that feeling of pride too

Digging up bones which buried the truth

Children, hypocrisy,

That's what I give, you can take it from me

If you don't, wont live to see

One last act of tragedy

A mothers heart can make me humble

No life lost can make me stumble

Our empire will never crumble

We did it for the glory

The glory

Only the glory

We live inside a story

It's a story

All for the glory

Bullets, begin to strip

A man of reason

He's a man of sin

The men of treason are the ones who live

They'll take whatcha got, whatcha got to give

Then pyre, a trial by fire

They're liars like we don't pyres

The letter to a mother from across the sea

The son in a box buried beneath

For whom the bell tolls, it tolls for me

For whom they saw when they put you to sleep

A deal with the devil is a deal with me

That deal is forever, as long as you breathe

Go forth child, make us proud

Honor is yours, underground

Know we love you, lay you down

We did it for the glory

The glory

Only the glory

We live inside a story

It's a story

All the glory

Nobody runs

Nobody runs

Nobody runs or makes it out alive

Nobody runs

Nobody runs

Nobody runs or makes it out alive!

Hearts beating faster running to the front line

Nobody runs or makes it out alive

Look up to Heaven as it rains from the sky

Nobody runs or makes it out alive

Out alive

Because we did it for the glory

The glory

Only the glory

We live inside a story

It's a story

All for the glory

The glory

The glory

The glory

We did it for the glory

The glory

For whom the bell tolls is allusion, because it references the poem by John Donne

Tendencies - Hollywood Undead

You know it's Johnny three, when you watch that body fall

When you f*ck with J-3-T, he's like f*ck it kill 'em all

Ain't no body bag boy, we'll feed you to the f*ckin' dogs

I'll keep on playin' saint, you keep beggin' me to stop

I ain't a good shot baby, but I'm on a roll

You better get down lady, someone's turnin' cold

Now it's time to meet your maker, hear the tolling of the bell

F*ckin' kill you again when I see you in hell

(Now it's time to meet your maker, hear the tolling of the bell

F*ckin' kill you again when I see you in hell)

B*tch!

Shut your eyes let darkness lead the fight, say goodnight

The rest will watch their future die,

Buried alive, say goodnight

It's time to let out the dead, dead come alive,

We wave the flag for the rest of our life

So shut your eyes let darkness lead the fight,

Say goodnight, say good night

You know it's hard to breathe with the knife up to your throat

And it's impossible to see down a barrel of smoke

And now you're starting to choke, you hope it's all in your mind

It's time to hit the deck like it's a fuckin' drive by

It ain't possible to manage all the carnage and the damage

And an animal like me could use it all to my advantage

You're the first to hit the floor, 'cause you know that we stay lit

We're kickin' in your door 'cause we ain't nothin' to fuck with

(You're the first to hit the floor, 'cause you know that we stay lit

We're kickin' in your door 'cause we ain't nothin' to fuck with)

Shut your eyes let darkness lead the fight, say goodnight

The rest will watch their future die,

Buried alive, say goodnight

It's time to let out the dead, dead come alive,

We wave the flag for the rest of our life

So shut your eyes let darkness lead the fight,

Say goodnight, say good night

There's a black flag hangin' over this town,

Get down! (get down!)

There's a black flag hangin' over this town,

Get down! (get down!)

There's a black flag hangin' over this town,

Get down! (get down!)

There's a black flag hangin' over this town,

Get down! (get down!)

In the land of the weak, we'll put you to sleep,

Put you to sleep, yeah, put you to sleep

Walk to the sky as you beg for your life,

Beg for your life, yeah, beg for your life

Shut your eyes let darkness lead the fight, say goodnight

The rest will watch their future die,

Buried alive, say goodnight

It's time to let out the dead, dead come alive,

We wave the flag for the rest of our life

So shut your eyes let darkness lead the fight,

Say goodnight, say good night

These metaphors compare the actions to how he gets revenge. He doesn't just get even, he beats the wrong-doer at their own game.

Light In The Darkness~ by Shaun Breedlove

Sometimes

all you need is someone,

just one person,

to be your light,

in the darkness.

For if you have no light,

to show you the beauty of day

the darkness

is all that you see.

And it shall engulf you,

like an eternal flame...

The light and darkness represent happiness and depression. these are metaphors that say that the light pushes away the darkness . the words "and it shall engulf you..." is personification, because darkness cant engulf. And the words "like an eternal flame" is a simile
