Music Monday – State Of My Head by Shinedown

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! Once again, Alex will be choosing this week’s song, because we are still in a kind of lockdown. He will be going back to work soon, so I will start choosing the songs myself again once that happens.

For this week’s song, he has chosen State Of My Head by Shinedown.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


State Of My Head by Shinedown

State Of My Head was released on 9th October 2015 as the second single from Shinedown’s fifth studio album, Threat to Survival. The song reached number one on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, their tenth single to do so.


Lyrics

That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

It’s been a long bumpy ride sittin’ back in the saddle
It’s time to get down, dirty up our knees in the battle
Come on, round up the boys, gonna make the walls rattle

Oh, our flag is tattered
And our bones are shattered
But it doesn’t matter
‘Cause we’re movin’ forward

Round ‘em up, round ‘em up, let’s go
Round ‘em up, let’s go

Oh, my eyes are seein’ red
Double vision from the blood we’ve shed
The only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

They don’t know, where we’ve been
We got that concrete street skin
Only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

We’ve been shot up, beat up by the fallin’ of the arrows (arrows, arrows, arrows)
Yeah, I’m full of deep cuts right down to the marrow
But there’s no doubt we’ll get out from the bottom of the barrel

Oh, our flag is tattered
And my bones are shattered
But it doesn’t matter
‘Cause we’re movin’ forward

Round ‘em up, round ‘em up, let’s go
Round ‘em up, let’s go

Oh, my eyes are seein’ red
Double vision from the blood we’ve shed
The only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

They don’t know, where we’ve been
We got that concrete street skin
The only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

Can you hear me now, can you hear me now
I’m comin’ back for more
Do you feel me now, do you feel me now
I’m breakin’ down your door

I’m not speakin’ under my breath
‘Cause the harder you push, the rougher I get
‘Cause I’m not shakin’, when the earth starts quakin’
Got my own foundation with no hesitation and the

Oh, my eyes are seein’ red
Double vision from the blood we’ve shed
The only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

They don’t know, where we’ve been
We got that concrete street skin
The only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

The only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head
The only way I’m leavin’ is dead
That’s the state of my, state of my, state of my head

  1. This was SO GOOD. I’ve added it to my Spotify! I’ve recently been getting back into Shinedown, I haven’t been listening to them since their Sound Of Madness era and I fully support their haircuts.

  2. This is one of my favorite Shinedown songs! Love it – in fact, I saw them play this song live in 2016 when they toured with Five Finger Death Punch… 🙂
