RE: Favourite Lyrics
I like to sing this one in the shower sometimes Tongue

Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime

Quote:And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself
Well...How did I get here?

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...

Water dissolving...and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right?...Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself yourself
My God!...What have I done?!

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Look where my hand was
Time isn't holding up
Time is an asterisk
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Yeah, the twister comes
Here comes the twister
Same as it ever was...

The Best is Yet to Come - SR-71

Quote:You see yourself being so small
Running into every brick wall
It's not as far as you can go
The road is twisting turning
A life is living learning
There's so much more for you to know

[Chorus]
If you could lock the past away
Step back through the doorway
This ride has just begun
If I could change your point of view
Is there someway I can show you
The best is yet to come

Not every problem can be
Solved so easily
Not every answer is the one
Above the flood of emotion
It's all about forward motion
Define your place in the sun

[Chorus]

Try to hide
It's all inside
You can find a place where the pain and guilt can fall away

If you're spitting truth
Bulletproof
Crashing through the walls that separate me and you

Now you'll find with everything you lose
Your path clears with everything you choose

If you could lock the past away
Step back through the doorway
This ride has just begun
Change your point of view
Is there someway I can show you
The best is yet to come

[Chorus]

Is there someway I can show you
The best is yet to come

Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba

[Oh yes, it's a lion]

[We're going to conquer]

Ingonyama nengw' enamabala
[A lion and a leopard come to this open place]

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In The Circle of Life

RE: Favourite Lyrics
Quote:Welcome to the Grand illusion
Come on in and see what's happening
Pay the price, get your tickets for the show
The stage is set, the band starts playing
Suddenly your heart is pounding
Wishing secretly you were a star.

But don't be fooled by the radio
The TV or the magazines
They show you photographs of how your life should be
But they're just someone else's fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it's a Grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same.
We're all the same...

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because your neighbors got it made
Just remember that it's a Grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same.
We're all the same...

America spells competition, join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
Someday soon we'll stop to ponder what on Earth's this spell we're under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

Quote:Mexican Radio
....
I wish I was in Tijuana
Eating barbequed iguana
I'd take requests on the telephone
I'm on a wavelength far from home
I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
I dial it in from south of the border
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say?

I'm on a mexican radio. I'm on a Mexican, whoa-Oh, radio
I'm on a mexican radio. I'm on a Mexican, whoa-Oh, radio
...only one important statement...All things, all of life, all of the creation is part of one original thought.

RE: Favourite Lyrics
Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes,
Like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught in the crossfire
Of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon,
You cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night,
And exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome
With random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!
-------
Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Pile on many more layers and I'll be joining you there.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph,
Sail on the steel breeze.
Come on you boy child, you winner and loser,
Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine..

RE: Favourite Lyrics
two songs~~ :p

1、We Are The World

Michael Jackson

There comes a time
When we hear a certain calls
when the world,most come together as one
there are people dying
oh and it's time to lend a hand to life.
the greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
that someone , somewhere will soon make a change
we're all a part of God's great big family
and the truth you know love is all we need

We are the World
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
so let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true, we'll make a better day
Just you and me

well send them your heart
so they know that someone cares
and their lives will be stronger and free
as God has shown us
by turning stone to bread
and so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the World
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
so let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
we're saving our own lives
it's true, we'll make a better day
Just you and me

when you're down and out
there seems no hope at all
but if you just believe
there's no way we can fall
woo woo woo woo let's realize
that a change can only come
when we stand together as one

we are the world
we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
so let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
we're saving our own lives
It's true, we'll make a better day
Just you and me

2、Imagine

John Lennon (ps:i love the Declan Galbraith version :p)



Lyrics:John Lennon
Music:John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

RE: Favourite Lyrics
The Animals - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Quote:Baby, do you understand me now
Sometimes I feel a little mad
But don't you know that no one alive
Can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree
With a joy that's hard to hide
And sometimes it seems that all I have do is worry
Then you're bound to see my other side
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem edgy I want you to know
That I never mean to take it out on you
Life has it's problems and I get my share
And that's one thing I never meant to do
Because I love you
Oh, Oh baby don't you know I'm human
Have thoughts like any other one
Sometimes I find myself long regretting
Some foolish thing some little simple thing I've done
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
Yes, I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
Yes, I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love.

RE: Favourite Lyrics
To me, the message of this song is basically: All is One. (But IDK if I'm interpreting it correctly...)





Stars - Set Yourself On Fire Wrote:In a village in the hills
House buried to the window sills in snow
In a prison yard at night
An Alsatian barking for the stars to go

In the attic of a house
In the slats of light which creep across the room
In a forest grove at dawn
Where the animals sleep hidden in the gloom

On the 97th floor overlooking Tokyo
In Camden road in a second floor flat with
Dilworth down below
There is only one thing
There is only one thing

In a cancer ward where the patients sit
Waiting patiently to die
In an aeroplane high above the place
You finally left behind

In a cage where only one thing could be free
And it's not you and I
In a cage where only one thing could be free
And it's not you and I

In every single place that has ever, ever been
Hiroshima, Los Angeles and each town in between
There is only one thing
There is only one thing
One thing

In the darkest part of you that you have ever seen
In the smile of the child staring at the TV screen
In the diary of a priest, in the sheets that lie upon his bed
Out there amongst the waves and inside your lover's head

There is only one thing [x6]
There is only one... thing

20 years asleep before we sleep... forever
20 years asleep before we sleep... forever...

Another favorite from Stars:

Quote:Ageless beauty
Cruelty makes its holes
But on the shoreline
Time will hold its promise
We will always be a light
You can see it from the surface, see it
We will always be a light
You can see it from the surface, see it
We will always be a light
Tattered fingers
Lingering on the warm and foolish
Hardened faces
Graceless, we'll lose the battle
We will always be a light
You can see it from the surface, see it
We will always be a light
You can see it from the surface, see it
We will always be a light
Oceans won't freeze
So loosen your heart
Underestimated
Undefeated in this love
We will always be a light
You can see it from the surface, see it
We will always be a light
You can see it from the surface, see it
We will always be a light

RE: Favourite Lyrics
After all the jacks are in their boxes,
and the clowns have all gone to bed,
you can hear happiness staggering on down the street,
footprints dressed in red.
And the wind whispers Mary.

A broom is drearily sweeping
up the broken pieces of yesterday's life.
Somewhere a Queen is weeping,
somewhere a king has no wife.
And the wind it cries Mary.

The traffic lights they turn blue tomorrow,
and shine the emptyness down on my bed.
The tiny island sags downstream,
cause the life that lives is dead.
And the wind screams Mary.

Will the wind ever remember,
the names it has blown in the past,
and with its crutch, its old age, and its wisdom,
it whispers no, this will be the last.
And the wind cries Mary.

There is no death, only change of worlds. -Si'ahl

RE: Favourite Lyrics
From the underground classic house tune titled "Where You At (Now)" by Derrick L Carter.

Where You At...

As I stop, and take the time
To inventory, the inside of my mind I realise,
It's not as full as it used to be.
With images of justice, or designs of liberty.

The world has changed, or is it me that's new?
A different set of morals from a different set of clues.
So still I wonder, is this all there is to life?
The ever changing cycles of a world that's damp and ripe

There must be more!
Yeah in my heart I hold to this.
Iv'e known the joy of love and iv'e seen the peace and bliss,
but as you know, all things must end.
Except the need for faith and the spirit that's within,

To keep you strong, when it seem's your about to break.
Just call upon the strength within and plant it as your stake.
Move forward with power!
Program yourself to feel, with depth enough to know what's up and heart to sense the real.

Where you at?

And now a picture, for the frame we set aside.
Below the bassline a secret place awaits for us to hide.
To pass the time, as the war goes on and on.
Post apocalyptic sunset post apocalyptic dawn!

But just a thought, of the world we once possessed
A place that wasn't ours is just a house with an address.
A false existence, wrought with fear and mistrust.
No life inside a box, no life inside of us.

Find your soul, and use your inner voice.
The road less travelled, is now the path of choice.
Realise, with time comes change.
New attitudes, new values priorities rearranged.

Move forward with power.
Program yourself to seek.
Wield your shield of justice, 
wield your sword of liberty.

Move forward move now!
Program yourself to feel.
With depth enough to know what's up and heart to sense the real.
Where you at?

Where...Are...You?

RE: Favourite Lyrics
Arc Of Time (Time Code) by Bright Eyes

You can make a plan
Carve it into stone
Like a feather falling
It is still unknown

Until the clock speaks up
Says it's time to go
You can choose the high
Or the lower road

You might clench your fist
You might fork your tongue
As you curse or praise
All the things you've done

And the faders move
And the music dies
As we pass over
On the arc of time

So you'll nurse your love
Like a wounded dove
In the covered cage of night
Every star is crossed
By frenetic thoughts
They separate and then collide
And they twist like sheets
'til you fall asleep
And they finally unwind
It's a black balloon,
It's a dream you'll soon
Deny

I hear if you make friends
With Jesus Christ
You'll get right up
From that chalk outline

And then you'll get dolled up
And you'll dress in white
All to take your place
In his chorus line

And then in you'll come
With those marching drums
In a saintly compromise
No more whiskey slurs
No more blonde hair girls
For your whole eternal life
And you'll do the dance
That was choreographed
At the very dawn of time
Singing "I told you son,
The day would come,
You would die, you die, you die, you die..."

To the deepest part
Of the human heart
The fear of death expands
'til we crack the code,
We've always known
But could never understand
On a circuit board
We'll soon be born
Again, again, again, again...




"I am all that has been, and is, and shall be..."

RE: Favourite Lyrics
I've always liked sorrowful lyrics, especially with Mikael Akerfeldt's voice

I can't see the meaning of this life I'm leading

I try to forget you as you forgot me
This time there is nothing left for you to take, this is goodbye

Summer is miles and miles away
And no one would ask me to stay

And I should contemplate this change
To ease the pain
And I should step out of the rain
Turn away

Close to ending it all, I am drifting through the stages
Of the rapture born within this loss
Thoughts of death inside, tear me apart from the core of my soul

Summer is miles and miles away
And no one would ask me to stay

And I should contemplate this change
To ease the pain
And I should step out of the rain
Turn away

At times the dark's fading slowly
But it never sustains
Would someone watch over me
In my time of need






You are in a dance with your life, acknowledge your end.

RE: Favourite Lyrics
Friends I have to tell you
They sent me on a mission down to earth
To watch and to observe life
And gather information 'bout your birth

But what I mostly see is misery
And it makes me sad

So capable of love yet, too scared to open up and
Just wanna be accepted, but can't show that you care
Creating problems daily, no wonder some go crazy
So special and so gifted, but most don't know, it's there

Friends I have to ask you
Surrounded by the beauty of this place
Why do you make it so hard
For all the things you want to come your way

Well I don't think you see your destiny
And it makes me sad

So capable of love yet, too scared to open up and
Just wanna be accepted, but can't show that you care
Creating problems daily, no wonder some go crazy
So special and so gifted, but most don't know, it's there

Do it, just let it all out
Express emotion
Say how you're feeling
It's liberating
Nothing can hurt you
You can be happy
But you must believe it (believe it)

Well I don't think you see your destiny
And it makes me sad

So capable of love yet, too scared to open up and
Just wanna be accepted, but can't show that you care
Creating problems daily, no wonder some go crazy
So special and so gifted, but most don't know, it's there
So capable of love yet, too scared to open up and
Just wanna be accepted
Creating problems daily, no wonder some go crazy
So special and so gifted, but most don't know, it's there

Won't you let me take you down to earth

Jem - "Down to Earth"

RE: Favourite Lyrics
If I had one wish, if I had one wish
It would be to be free of this fighting all around
'Cause it's so wrong and it could be so right
In my heart I know we're here to grow
To love, to give, to learn, to live
And I believe in miracles, open up your eyes

Got a soul, got a mind, got a heart that beats in time
You've got a smile, got a voice, got the gift of love
You've got it good, don't forget how lucky you are
Darling, darling, use it to connect with everyone

Don't you know we're golden covered up with mud?
One day you'll see the truth that we all share the same blood
Supposed to love thy neighbor together we should stand
Whatever color, race or creed, come on and hold my hand
'Cause I don't differentiate, we're all the same to me

Got a soul, got a mind, got a heart that beats in time
You've got a smile, got a voice, got the gift of love
You've got it good, don't forget how lucky you are
Darling, darling, use it to connect with everyone

And it's getting so serious, crushed my heart in pieces
But I know I'm not alone in wanting peace, not alone
And if you feel what I feel raise your hands with me

Got a soul, got a mind, got a heart that beats in time
You've got a smile, got a voice, got the gift of love
You've got it good, don't forget how lucky you are
Darling, darling, use it to connect with everyone

Got a soul, got a mind, got a heart that beats in time
You've got a smile, got a voice, got the gift of love
You've got it good, don't forget how lucky you are
Darling, darling, thank you for the moments that we had

(Got It Good - Jem)

Favorite?  I'm like Min, except I'm gay for Nine Inch Nails :3

Favorite Album, The Fragile; First Song on Album:
Quote:"Somewhat Damaged"

so impressed with all you do
tried so hard to be like you
flew too high and burnt the wing
lost my faith in everything

lick around divine debris
taste the wealth of hate in me
shedding skin succumb defeat
this machine is obsolete

made the choice to go away
drink the fountain of decay
tear a hole exquisite red
f*** the rest and stab it dead

broken bruised forgotten sore
too f***** up to care anymore
poisoned to my rotten core
too f***** up to care anymore

in the back off the side far away is a place where I hide where I
stay tried to say tried to ask I needed to all alone by myself where were you?
how could I ever think it's funny how everything that
swore it wouldn't change is different now just like you
would always say we'll make it through then my head fell apart and where were you?
how could I ever think it's funny how everything you swore would
never change is different now like you said you and me make it
through didn't quite fell apart where the f*** were you?

From The Album, Broken:
Quote:"Wish"

this is the first day of my last days
i built it up now i take it apart climbed up real high now fall down real far
no need for me to stay the last thing left i just threw it away
i put my faith in god and my trust in you
now there's nothing more f***** up i could do
wish there was something real wish there was something true
wish there was something real in this world full of you
i'm the one without a soul i'm the one with this big fucking hole
no new tale to tell twenty-six years on my way to hell
gotta listen to your big time hard line bad luck fist f***
don't think you're having all the fun
you know me i hate everyone
wish there was something real wish there was something true
wish there was something real in this world full of you
i want to but i can't turn back
but i want to

And then my Favorite Favorite all time favorite song ever:
Quote:"La Mer"

and when the day arrives
I'll become the sky
and I'll become the sea

and the sea will come to kiss me
for I am going home

nothing can stop me now

I think this song was actually about Suicide.

I identified with most of Nine Inch Nails while growing up.

RE: Favourite Lyrics
Odesza - It's Only


I heard the news today,
That you weren't mine to save
I hope that you're comfortable
In the quiet lasting grave

What is lust if it's not being by yourself?
I won't be gentle to the body on the shelf.

It's only water
It's only fire
It's only love

It's only slaughter
We're only liars
It's only blood

They're only thoughts that I'm having;
Thoughts safe within my head.

You're only crying
You're only dying
You're only dead



Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.

RE: Favourite Lyrics
The remixes for Deep are better than the original.  In fact basically every NIN song has a fan remix since Trent Reznor released the multitracks for his songs to be remixed at remix.nin.com.
I highly recommend a search of those remixes if you like Nine Inch Nails.

Quote:NIN: "Deep"

Blank stare
Disrepair
There's a big black hole
Gonna eat me up someday
Someday fades away
Like a memory
Or a place that you'd rather be
Some place lost in space
Itch in my head, that's telling me somewhere
Somewhere out there anywhere
I don't care
Get me out of here

If I could feel
All the pins and the pricks
If you were real
I could take what's apart
And put it back together

This will come true
Help me get through
Into you
Deep [x8]

All I can do
driving me through
Into you
Deep [x8]

One track
Get you on your back
Your skin speaks up,
but your lips couldn't say it
Right now
You know somehow
We could take a chance
We could make it (make it)
Right here
Make it all disappear
Everything we've been missing (missing)
You make me feel
There's a part of me, that I want to get back again

Make this come true
Help me get through
Into you
Deep [x8]

All I can do
Pushing it through
Into you
Deep [x8]

(Into you)

(Into you)

All I can do
Driving on through
Into you
Deep [x8]

You're slipping through
I come into
Into you
Deep [x8]

We could become
Two into one
Leave this behind
Over and done
Everything new
I'm coming through
Into you

(Into you)

Quote:"Meet Your Master"

Bow down in position
Against the polished steel
This is something different
You'll like the way this feels
No time for asking questions
No time for wondering
We've had enough of you now
You've heard everything

You want to play a new game
You put on this blindfold
You do what we tell you
You do as you're told
Used to be the leader
Now comes the time to serve
Maybe we'll show some mercy
Maybe you'll get what you deserve

[Chorus:]
Count down to the end
Gotta make it come faster, faster
Right around the bend
Is a coming disaster
Count down to the end
And we're headed their faster
Come on down my friend
It's time to meet your master

You've left quite a mess here under your stewardship
You thought you figured it out but you'll learn your place in this
Might take some convincing for you to see the truth
There are so many things we've got in store for you

[Chorus]

Come on down

RE: Favourite Lyrics
I came across this old song by Crosby, Stills & Nash after 911 and there were all those pop songs about supporting our troops. This song seemed to be in such juxtaposition to the (American) 911 patriotic fervor and hatred toward Muslims. This song was written about Viet Nam. I think the lyrics go to the heart of the idea that we are all one.






"Wooden Ships"

[Stills:] If you smile at me I will understand
'Cause that is something
Everybody everywhere does in the same language
[Crosby:] I can see by your coat, my friend you're from the other side
There's just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please who won?
[Stills:] Say can I have some of your purple berries?
[Crosby:] Yes, I've been eating them
For six or seven weeks now haven't got sick once
[Stills:] Probably keep us both alive

Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy

Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving, you don't need us

Aaaah ...
Go take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don't need us

And it's a fair wind
Blowin' warm out of the south over my shoulder
Guess I'll set a course and go

So good. That's actually probably on the top 5 list of fave songs for my husband.
There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love.

RE: Favourite Lyrics
@TTP, La Mer is one of my top 3 NIN songs. My fav NIN song due to it's lyrics is:





Quote:See the animal in his cage that you built
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
See the safety of the life you have built
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it's all
Right where it belongs

[Chorus:]
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afraid to see?

What if all the world's inside of your head
Just creations of your own?
Your devils and your gods
All the living and the dead
And you're really all alone?
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find the woods
While you're hiding in the trees

[Chorus]

RE: Favourite Lyrics
This song is my favorite song in terms of recognizing self-worth and not just doing what you think will make others like/accept you:

Alanis Morisette - Your Congratulations




Quote:I wouldn't have compromised so much
so much of myself for fear of
having you hating me
I would've sung so loudly
it would've cracked myself!
I became self-conscious
of anything exuberant
I wouldn't have sold myself short
I wouldn't have kept my eyes
glued to the ground
if I had've known my invisibility
would not make a difference
I would've run around screaming proudly
at the top of my voice
I wouldn't have said it was in fact luck
I'm talking idealism here
I would not have been so self deprecating
I wouldn't have cowered
for fear of having my eyes scratched out!
I wouldn't have cut my comfort off
I wouldn't have feigned needlessness
I would not have discredited
every one of their compliments
it was your approval I wanted
your congratulations

RE: Favourite Lyrics
This is just a song that I find the lyrics to be clever and extremely fun  Tongue :





Quote:Some of us get a little
And some a lot
We've got to make due
With what ever we got
We get it hot we cool it down
And then we pass it around

You can dance
For the sake of a golden day
Take a chance on getting rid
Of whatever's in your way
Next stop big hop
Is turning night into day

Sometimes when
I'm lying there all alone
I think of every little nothing
That we could own
To overthrow all of you
Who have overgrown

All my friends
Like to spend
Days on end
On the mend
I turn to you, I turn into
And then I turn it again

Here we go
All we know
Heavy load,
Start to float
Without a doubt, we turn it out
And then we turn it again

Lets dance all night and day now
Get down and show the way how
I want to show you that I care

Two things I want to say now
You make it all ok now
I need to know that you are there

I've come to learn
Whatever time I can find to spend
Taking flight into
Whatever light we bend
Out on the street
I get a beat and then
I turn it to ten

Lace boots and the
Ladies of kasakstan
Kick 'em high to the sky
All of this just because we can
I turn to cuba
Then aruba then the dominican

We've got to move it
If we want to do our best
We've got to shake it
If we want to keep it fresh

I'm turning down
All the heavy psychology
To cut a rug
And I make no apology
I turn a cheek, I turn a key
And then I turn it for free

We've got to move it
Just a little to hit the spot
A whirling derbish in a flurry
A fox to trot
Come clown around, a robot
Doin' the astronaut

RE: Favourite Lyrics




When I Was A Baby (original song by The Donner Party)

When I was baby I looked like a pig
My nose a snout and my ears were too big
My mother would poke at the hole
At the back of my head where my brain was exposed
I didn't know it then but never again
Would recapture those wonderful days

When I was a baby I fell down a well
I landed deep down in the furnace of hell
The devil would rock me to sleep
With stories of cities of ivory and gold
It took a long, long time before I could
Escape from that terrible hole

When I was a baby I lived in a crib
I crawled on floors and ate with a bib
But then I was taken away
And was sold to the circus for trinkets and beads
Now I lie awake at night and dream about
What I would do if I was ever set free
There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love.

RE: Favourite Lyrics
I am just a copy of a copy of a copy
Everything I say has come before
Assembled into something into something into something
I don't know for certain anymore
I am just a shadow of a shadow of a shadow
Always trying to catch up with myself
I am just an echo of an echo of an echo
Listening to someone's cry for help

Look what you had to start
Why all the change of heart?
You need to play your part
A copy of a copy of a
Now look what you've gone and done
Well that doesn't sound like fun
See I'm not the only one
A copy of a copy of a

I am little pieces little pieces little pieces
Pieces that were picked up on the way
Imprinted with a purpose with a purpose with a purpose
A purpose that's become quite clear today

Another favorite of mine is Tool - Schism
"I know the peices fit because I watched it fall apart"

RE: Favourite Lyrics
Rush - Mission






Hold your fire

Keep it burning bright
Hold the flame 'til the dream ignites
A spirit with a vision is a dream
With a mission

I hear their passionate music
Read the words that touch my heart
I gaze at their feverish pictures
The secrets that set them apart

When I feel the powerful visions
Their fire has made alive
I wish I had that instinct
I wish I had that drive

Spirits fly on dangerous missions
Imaginations on fire
Focused high on soaring ambitions
Consumed in a single desire

In the grip of a nameless possession
A slave to the drive of obsession
A spirit with a vision is a dream
With a mission

I watch their images flicker
Bringing light to a lifeless screen
I walk through their beautiful buildings
And I wish I had their dreams
But dreams don't need to have motion
To keep their spark alive
Obsession has to have action
Pride turns on the drive

It's cold comfort
To the ones without it
To know how they struggled
How they suffered about it
If their lives were exotic and strange
They would likely have gladly exchanged them
For something a little more plain
Maybe something a little more sane

We each pay a fabulous price
For our visions of paradise
But a spirit with a vision is a dream
With a mission
There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love.
