Paramore Lyrics - Monster

8:27 AM Blogger Serabutan 1 Comments

You were my conscience
so solid now you're like water
We started drowning
not like we'd sink any further
But I let my heart go
it's somewhere down at the bottom
But I'll get a new one.
come back for the hope that you've stolen

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster, and eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we'd survive?
But now that you're gone the world is ours

I'm only human
I've got a skeleton in me
But I'm not the villain
despite what you're always preaching
Call me a traitor
I'm just collecting your victims
They're getting stronger,
I hear them calling

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster, and eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we'd survive?
But now that you're gone the world is ours

Well you found us strength and solutions but I liked the tension
And not always knowing the answers when you're gonna lose it, you're gonna lose it.

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster, and eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we'd survive?
But now that you're gone the world is ours

I'll stop the whole world
I'll stop the whole world
from turning into a monster, and eating us alive
Don't you ever wonder how we'd survive?
But now that you're gone the world is ours

Previewing the 2011 Vans Warped Tour: Paramore

4:58 PM Blogger Serabutan 3 Comments

Alternative rock sensation Paramore returns to the Vans Warped Tour spotlight this year with seven Warped Tour dates. Paramore will perform from Thursday, July 14th to Wednesday, July 20th in addition to Tuesday, August 9th. Tuesday, August 9th, at The Cricket Amphitheatre in San Diego, provides the only opportunity this summer for California residents to watch Paramore rock out the Warped Tour stage in the Golden State.

Before becoming a reoccurring name on the Billboard Albums of the Year charts or having eight songs place amongst the Billboard Hot 100 charts Paramore participated in the Vans Warped Tour. The group first played on the Warped Tour in 2005, when still novice teenagers. 2011 marks the sixth time the band travels on the tour. Vocalist Hayley Williams noted during a recent acoustic performance in Los Angeles to honor Kevin Lyman, the man who booked Paramore on their first Warped Tour, “That’s another reason we’re on the Warped Tour again this year because we love it. We can’t get enough, we can’t get enough of it.”

Despite a controversial end to 2010 Paramore continues strong. Rumors the band split up spread after brothers Josh Farro (guitar) and Zac Farro (drums) left the band. In the two’s “Exit Statement” the brothers accused their management of showing favoritism towards Williams. Williams along with guitarist Taylor York and bassist Jeremy Davis sat down with MTV to set the record straight and reassure fans Paramore will move forward.

During a February tour in South America the group substituted the Farro brothers with guitarist Justin York (Taylor’s brother) and drummer Josh Freese. Talks about permanent replacements, however, have yet to go public. Paramore did spend time in the studio this past March to create new music. In the studio York assumed double duty, playing the drums in addition to the guitar. When we asked if Justin York and Josh Freese would join Paramore onstage this summer for the Warped Tour, Williams replied “Justin will most likely… but Josh Freese will be out on other tours!”

The Vans Warped Tour displayed their excitement to have Paramore back on the road by placing the band on the cover of this year’s Warped Tour compilation album. The cover features Williams, York, and Davis performing at the 2007 Warped Tour. As seasoned tour veterans Paramore knows how to engage the event’s audience and give a memorable show. Make sure to get your tickets for Tuesday, August 9th at The Cricket Amphitheatre in San Diego if you want to see Paramore at this year’s Warped Tour.



Paramore is back with more emo pop—and more of Hayley Williams's boobs

4:56 PM Blogger Serabutan 0 Comments

Colour Paramore fans relieved. Last week, the band released “Monster”, its first song since the departure of founding members Josh and Zac Farro. (For those keeping track, that leaves the former quintet a trio, with two original members.) Much to the delight of Team Edward members everywhere, the new Paramore sounds exactly like the old Paramore.

Which is to say, it’s guitar-based emo pop with suitably soaring minor-key melodies courtesy of 22-year-old frontwoman Hayley Williams. Paramore is essentially Evanescence for kids too young to know who Evanescence is.

That’s not a knock against Paramore, either. Evanescence is a fine band. Or at least it was until Ben Moody left to go write songs for Kelly Clarkson and CĂ©line Dion. There’s much to be said for terminal angst buoyed by precision-tooled ensemble playing. The thing is, though, as tight as Paramore has always seemed musically, it has often been a different story on the interpersonal level.

After the Farro brothers took their leave last December, guitarist Josh posted an epic statement on his blog, which made it clear that things became fractious not long after Williams joined their high-school garage group in 2004. “Months down the road things changed and this band became all about Hayley,” Farro wrote. “She had a manager at the time that controlled her every move along with her parents. They didn’t like the idea of Hayley being in a rock band so they forced her to leave wanting her to pursue a solo career.”

Needless to say, the nascent Paramore eventually reconvened, but the idea that it was ever going to be anything other than a showcase for the flame-haired frontwoman went out the window. The act began playing industry showcases, and eventually landed a major-label contract. Or at least Williams did. “After many meetings between Hayley, her manager and the labels they decided to sign her to Atlantic records,” Farro explained on his blog. “We didn’t understand why Hayley was the only one signing the contract since we were told this was a ‘band’, but we were too young to grasp all of this.”

Upon releasing its debut album, 2005’s All We Know Is Falling, on the Atlantic subsidiary Fueled by Ramen, Paramore hit the road and spent two-and-half years doing what Farro described as “building our fan base, pretending to be a band that started naturally. In reality, what started as natural somehow morphed into a manufactured product of a major label, riding on the coattails of ‘Hayley’s dream’.”

And on it went, with Williams being pushed in one direction and pulled in another, not really a solo artist but not quite a member of a band, either. She has only one song out under just her own name—the Jennifer’s Body soundtrack throwaway “Teenagers”—but she scored a major hit last spring with “Airplanes”, a collaboration with rapper B.o.B to which she provided the hook. Around the same time, she also provided millions of teenage boys with fresh jacking material by “accidentally” posting a topless picture of herself to Twitter. Oops.

Funny thing about Williams: in the context of Paramore her image is as squeaky-clean as a Disney Channel sitcom princess. On her own, though, watch out. Her now-infamous tits made another, albeit somewhat more demure, appearance on the front of last month’s Cosmopolitan, book-ended by cover copy enticing readers with “75 Sex Moves Men Crave: Guys Confess Naughty Desires They Never Had the Balls to Tell Their Exes” and “This Sex Position Increases Female Orgasm by 56%”.

Someone must have thought this would be good for her image. And maybe it will be, if the idea is to finally morph Williams into the pop star her management has always wanted her to be: a little more Britney Spears and a whole let less Amy Lee. Of course, she’ll have to ditch those other two dudes in her “band” first.



Paramore New Album Hayley Williams Grateful to Fans for Support

4:19 PM Blogger Serabutan 2 Comments

It hasn’t been an easy year for the band Paramore, fronted by Hayley Williams. The band underwent a major change in late 2010 when brothers Josh and Zac Farro decided to leave it, stunning fans. Despite the disappointment, Williams is happy to report that those same fans have poured out their support upon the band. She hopes that they will find Paramore’s next album suitable compensation for their loyalty.

Paramore’s last album was “Brand-New Eyes,” which came out in 2009. Later this year, the band will begin work on the next album, hopefully laying down all of the tracks before the year concludes, since the intention is to release the album in 2012. Some complications have been involved in the process, since the band has had to focus a lot of energy upon finding new members to replace the Farros, but Williams is ready to get back in the studio.

While this past year has presented many challenges to Williams and the rest of the band, she thinks that it has been good for Paramore in the long run because it has shown how loyal its fans are. She is touched by all of the outpourings of appreciation for the band’s music, and she can hardly wait to unveil their new recording to the world.



Paramore's new album due early 2012

Paramore's Hayley Williams has revealed that the band will release their new album in early 2012.

The group, who are working on their first record since Josh and Zac Farro quit the group last December, said that they hope to start recording the follow-up to 2009's Brand New Eyes at the end of this year.

"We're about to start writing it," Williams told BBC Radio 1. "We're getting down to the core... of refreshing our band.

"We're hoping to have the record out early next year. We love playing festivals, so hopefully we'll start to record it at the end of 2011."

Asked when the band will next perform in the UK, she replied: "Not soon enough! I'm so ready - we only have 15 shows scheduled this year and that is so not cool. I'm kind of pulling my hair out and freaking out with nothing to do at home!"

She continued: "It's been a crazy, crazy six months. I think the best thing is to see how much support we get. It's hard to call our fans 'fans' - it's so much like a family at this point it's ridiculous. It's crazy, I love it."

Paramore Roar Back With New Single, 'Monster'

9:41 AM Blogger Serabutan 0 Comments

"You" can be a worrisome word. A weighty one. By its very definition — "the one or ones being addressed" — it is up for interpretation, and when it's used in a song, things get even more muddy. Does "you" refer to the listener or the public at large? Does it take the place of the subject of the lyric, someone who has wronged, inspired, doubted, betrayed the writer? Or does "you" even have to be a person? Couldn't someone "want" or "love" a refreshing beverage or an old car or, you know, drugs?

Shoot, now that we're on the subject, maybe we're never supposed to figure out who or what "you" is referring to (the classic example, of course, being Carly Simon's "You're So Vain," which is apparently about Warren Beatty ... or David Geffen ... or David Bowie, depending on whom you ask).

I only bring this up because in Paramore's brand-new song "Monster," which premiered Friday on the band's official site, Hayley Williams uses the Y-word a lot. And given everything that has lead up to the song's debut — a string of drama that included the departure of founding member (and Williams' old flame) Josh Farro, a rather nasty "exit statement," a tell-all interview with MTV News and the band's steadfast determination to continue onward — it's rather impossible not to wonder who she's referring to ... especially given the existence of kiss-offs like "You were my conscience, so solid/ Now you're like water, and we started drowning/ Not like we'd sink any further" and "Now that you're gone/ The world is ours."

So, is Williams singing about Josh Farro? It's difficult to think otherwise ... then again, perhaps, like Simon, she'll never let us know. Because, really, the subject of the song isn't as important as its very existence, a statement any Paramore fan will certainly agree with. "Monster" officially kicks off the next chapter in the band's story and does so roaringly, with spindly, chiming guitars (which recall one of Williams' favorite bands, mewithoutYou), crushing chords, a massive chorus and a stalking backbeat. Based on the song, it seems like new Paramore will be very much like old Paramore, seemingly minus the drama that drained them for years. Even if we don't know who Williams' "you" is, it's good to have her — and the band — back.
