►What’s in the Playlist: Pages by 3 Doors Down

Posted by Mercenary Spark on June 25, 2008

I’m sorry to my visitors for not making last week’s What’s in the Playlist article, but some circumstances postponed it (those included college entrance tests).  For that, this week I’ll make the Video of the Month article and the game review (this one might be published for next week). After considering another song for this week (a sadder sad one),  I chose this one instead because it’s a really great song by 3 Doors Down’s self-titled album released last month. Less rocking in sound than When I’m Gone, but still rockin’ in its own way. The song is about a man who expresses his emotional pain through writings about his life, which someone (you) going through a similar situation then reads and might use to avoid the same fate as the man. That’s my interpretation of the message and I think that makes this one of their best songs.

Rating: 9/10 – Yeah, it’s really a great song. 3DD’s self-titled album might have good singles (It’s Not My Time and Train), great rock songs like Give It To Me, and other good b-sides (like all of their albums), but this song stands out, maybe because of the impact of the lyrics and the music. You should all consider buying this album if you like 3 Doors Down’s music, post-grunge or some of the songs on the album like this one.  Pages is available In the Corner.

Lyrics to the Song:
What happens to a man when
He spills his heart on a page and
He watches words flow away then
His feelings lie on the page alone
There waiting
For someone who cares to read them
To open their eyes to see them
To see if they can make his thoughts their own
To find out that maybe your life’s not perfect
Maybe it’s not worth what he gives away

You can see that this broken soul is bleeding
So you can see your feelings inside yourself
And wander through my heart
Letting you see through me
Now only consumes me
Forget your pain, watch me fall apart

What happens to a soul when
It’s trapped inside his emotions
And all of these words he’s spoken
They bind him to the life he’s left behind
And every new step he takes
He knows that he might not make it
To all of these dreams that he has yet to find

Maybe your life’s not perfect
But maybe it’s not worth what he gives away
You can see that this broken soul is bleeding
So you can see your feelings inside yourself
And wander through my heart
Letting you see through me
Now only consumes me
Forget your pain and watch me fall apart

You can see that this broken soul is bleeding
So you can see your feelings inside yourself
And wander through my heart
Letting you see through me
Now only consumes me
Forget your pain and watch me fall apart
As I fall apart.

  1. Excuse me Mercenary of Light. I have a question to ask of you. I was wondering how you put up music? Its a “Box” Widget correct? Right now I’m making an account on it (although I didn’t know a simple widget would be so complicated) and am needed some advice.

  2. I forgot about how to make one, but I think you upload some files, organize in a folder and under that folder click options. Click Shae and that gives you an URL which you will copy to your box.net widget on WP. And did you listen to Pages?

  3. I already made it. I have allot of music up. Why not go and listen? You’ll like it!

  4. Already went and listened. 😀

  5. Make sure you keep checking often because I’m updating the music everyday! Also, I posted an update. But unfortunately, NO POSTERS!

    nice job with the box, sl

  7. I already saw it, SL (I have your RSS). The reason I might not post as often on your blog is because I have little to offer to a new Pokémon games’ blog.

  8. @ Justin:

    Thanks!

    @ MoL:

    Okay. That’s fine I suppose. My music is pretty cool I think. I’ll be uploading much more soon.

  9. Yeah, it’s good. I haven’t heard most of the songs before, because I haven’t played the game.

  10. What status do you keep your Box? “Advanced”? Because I thought that was cool but I couldn’t name it. To top that off you have a name. But I prefer ‘Basic’ Box. Its easier for people to listen. Also, I was wondering, if you ever suggest anything on my blog that needs to be done, let me know.

  11. Mine is the basic one (I think), I didn’t change the colors or anything. I managed it to fit my sidebar (change the numbers everytime you change themes).

  12. Actually, I think yours is Advanced. Because they display it on Box.net. A little image to the side.

  13. That’s strange. 8) I have advanced for free.

  14. ? Ahh…I think that Widget is always free.

  15. No, there are premium options too. Usually for more space.

  16. Well I didn’t buy them! 😆 I might want to consider being an Author again. 😀
