Oakvale: Arms Off

Updated on March 3, 2012

"Arms Off," it's exactly as its name entails. Written by our bassist, it pretty much involves the teenage angst towards one's parents. It is one of the first songs I ever learned but it was also one of the most difficult. It was horribly painstaking because I'm not an angry fellow, this is most definitely an angry song. Many moons of practice eventually led me to portraying this song in all of its violent, emotional fury. It's short, it's not so sweet.

(Verse 1)
Such a bold thing to say,
Such a bold tone to take,
You break the ice by breaking me down.
So you're on top of the world?
Well it's time that you fell down!

(Chorus)
Steering away from the empty threats that you make,
you want to kick me out, you want to kick me out, THE DOOR!

(Verse 2)
It's all the same to me,
the words I hear from you!
Say what?!
I can't hear you!

(Chorus)
Steering away from the empty threats that you make,
you want to kick me out, you want to kick me out, THE DOOR!

See? What Did I Tell You?

Teenage angst all the way! It's a fun song, it's easy and it allows for me to lose myself in the heat of it all. It's a song to forget everything and just focus on yelling. It's therapeutic, I suggest trying it sometime.

    I wouldn't say I am. Just got a mood every now and then that calls for a raging angry dude in a mask yelling at me. You on the other hand have got great taste! Not going to lie, I love those bands.

    So you are a metal head? I grew up listening to Tool, NIN, rage against the machine, Def Tones, I got to see all but rage in concert. Pantera is a good group when I drive, well maybe not, I suffer from road rage, so that sometimes is not a good combo.

    A singer or band? Well... I think for a band that Saliva would probably do a great job of keeping the essence of the lyrics and the energy and intention of the song. As for a specific singer... toughy... I'd pick Corey Taylor of Slipknot... just cause he's beast.

    I think it it's absolutely incredible codemaster.

    Now if you could pick a singer/band who would sing it?
