Mayhem - Halestorm



The Experience: I wanna feel the chaos, wanna hear the uproar... This world twisted me. It failed me. It hurt me. And I want to watch it all burn...



Music video: Halestorm rages at the empty gray walls of a world that has failed them. But they never leave the confines of those walls. The rage doesn't end in freedom - it ends in exhaustion as Hale falls to her knees and bows her head.

The Meaning of Mayhem: When the world that used to thrill you runs out of tricks - I'm so bored with this world that spins around me, used to make me dizzy, I'm so tired - there are only two options. You can lash out and destroy - mayhem - the cruel world that failed and twisted you. Or you can try to build a new one. Halestorm's Mayhem showcases frustration at a world that can't offer happiness, and anger lashing out to shake the walls of your prison. Those are real feelings... but they can't rebuild your life when you're done tearing your false world down. Halestorm only hints at that: the song ends, not halfway through raw note of rage, but with a suddenly quiet, empty and exhausted shrill echo, perfectly synced to an exhausted Hale falling to her knees and bowing her head in the music video.

Ask yourself: Do you hate an empty meaningless world enough to want to tear it down? Do you want happiness enough to roll up your sleeves and start building a new world?

LYRICS:

I'm so bored
With this world that spins around me
Used to make me dizzy
I'm so tired
Of these boys that hang around me
Used to drive me crazy

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
Where'm I gonna get some?
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
Where'm I gonna get some?

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
I'm a gonna get some, get some, get some
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
I'm a gonna get some, get some, get some, oh

Cruel intentions
Wind me in a spiral
I'm waiting to unravel
Twisted motives
Drive me in a circle
I'm dying to untangle

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
Where'm I gonna get some?
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
Where'm I gonna get some?

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
Where'm I gonna get some, get some, get some?
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
Where'm I gonna get some, get some, get some?
Oh, oh, oh

I wanna feel the chaos
I wanna hear the uproar
A little pandemonium
I know I'm not the only one
I wanna be blown away
I wanna feel the walls shake
I wanna feel the walls shake
I wanna feel the walls shake
Shake it shake it shake it...

Oh
1, 2, 3, 4, oh

Looking for some Mayhem
Need a little Mayhem
Need a little Mayhem
Looking for some Mayhem
Looking for some Mayhem, yeah, yeah
Need a little Mayhem
Want to hear some Mayhem, yeah
