Muse~ Knights of Cydonia said:
Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you how god
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win
When fools can be kings
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you

No one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive
(the songs better)

NOFX~ Seeing Double at the Triple Rock said:
It's 3 o'clock at the Triple Rock, another round of watching Paddy talk
It's where you wanna get snowed in when you get
Snowed in, outside it's 10 below, is it day or night, we don't care or know
What we know is that we don't wanna be
Anywhere but here, please don't make us leave
When in Minnesota and you got a drinking quota

I'm seeing double at the Triple Rock, we're still here watching Paddy talk
Then undress, then get out the duct tape
The one question still remains, how much more art can we take?
I'll let you know when the medication wears off

I'm a religious drunk and this is where I pray
The church of alcoholics can't break up the congregation
Give us air to breathe, through carbonation
We are at liquor church, genuflecting on barstools
We're praying that the taps will keep the holy water flowing
Key kicks of communion, then a long night of confessions
Coming home after noon seems to raise a lot of questions
When in Minnesota and you got a drinking quota
Avenged Sevenfold~ Burn It Down said:
Jealousy's an ugly word, but you don't seem to care
Converse behind my back, but now I'm here
Need no one to comply with me though everyone that I defeat
Don't need you, fuck camaraderie, this rage will never go away

Hatred fuels my blood, I'll burn ya down [you can't help me]
One king to watch the horsemen fall, I'll fight 'til the end [I won't help you]
I can't trust anyone, see it in my eyes
Now I can understand, it's sorrow that feeds your lies

You're on my back when the water gets too deep for you to breath
A crutch for you that won't always be there
Hide in the dark another day, the fear in you is here to stay
I can't trust anyone, witness and see it in my eyes
Now I can understand, put faith in you for the last time
It's sorrow that feeds your lies

Run from me before I tear you down [be afraid]
You chose the wrong side [it feels so right]
I won't help you, let you rot away
Run towards the light exposing your soul [we won't be there by your side]
Salvation's dying [somebody's crying]
We're all gone in the end, sweet child we'll miss you
No, so far away

Falling away, can't turn back time
Burn it down anyway

Here's one of mine...

Iron & Wine - The Trapeze Swinger said:
please remember me, happily
by the rosebush laughing
with bruises on my chin, the time when
we counted every black car passing
your house beneath the hill, and up until
someone caught us in the kitchen
with maps, a mountain range, a piggy bank
a vision too removed to mention

but please remember me, fondly
i heard from someone you're still pretty
and then they went on to say that the Pearly Gates
had some eloquent graffiti
like: “we'll meet again” and “fuck the Man”
and “tell my mother not to worry”
and angels with their great handshakes
but always done in such a hurry

and please remember me, at Hallowe’en
making fools of all the neighbors
our faces painted white, by midnight
we'd forgotten one another
and when the morning came i was ashamed
only now it seems so silly
that season left the world and then returned
and now you're lit up by the city

so please remember me, mistakenly
in the window of the tallest tower
call, then pass us by, but much too high
to see the empty road at happy hour
gleam and resonate just like the gates
around the Holy Kingdom
with words like: “lost and found” and “don't look down”
and “someone save temptation”

and please remember me as in the dream
we had as rug-burned babies
among the fallen trees and fast asleep
beside the lions and the ladies
that called you what you like and even might
give a gift for your behavior:
a fleeting chance to see a trapeze-
swinger high as any savior

but please remember me, my misery
and how it lost me all i wanted
those dogs that love the rain, and chasing trains
the colored birds above there running
in circles round the well, and where it spells
on the wall behind St. Peter
so bright on cinder gray in spray paint:
“who the hell can see forever?”

and please remember me, seldomly
in the car behind the carnival
my hand between your knees, you turn from me
and said the trapeze act was wonderful
but never meant to last, the clowns that passed
saw me just come up with anger
when it filled with circus dogs, the parking lot
had an element of danger

so please remember me, finally
and all my uphill clawing
my dear, but if i make the Pearly Gates
i’ll do my best to make a drawing
of God and Lucifer, a boy and girl
an angel kissin’ on a sinner
a monkey and a man, a marching band
all around the frightened trapeze-swinger

Michael Rennie was ill The Day The Earth Stood Still
But he told us where we stand
Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
Claude Rains was The Invisible Man

Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace It Come From Outer Space
And this is how the message ran

Science fiction, double feature
Doctor X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet

Oh oh oh oh oh
At the late night, double feature, picture show (oww!)

I knew Leo G. Carrol was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills
And I got really hot when I saw Jeanette Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills

Dana Andrews said Prunes gave him the Runes
And passing them used lots of skills
But When Worlds Collide, said George Pal to his bride
"I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills," like a

Oh oh oh oh oh, at the late night, double feature, picture show
I wanna go, oh oh oh oh, to the late night, double feature, picture show
By RKO, oh oh oh oh, to the late night, double feature, picture show
In the back row, to the late night, double feature, picture show
Awesome tribute to some of the greatest Sci Fi films ever made. One of my favorites, but my absolute favorite is:

The Clash- I'm Not Down

If it's true that a rich man leads a sad life
N' that's what they from day to day
Then what do all the poor do with their lives?
Have nothing to say on judgment day?

I've been beat up, I've been thrown
Out but I'm not down, I'm not down
I've been shown up, but I've grown up
And I'm not down, I'm not down

On my own I faced a gang of jeering in strange streets
When my nerves were pumping and I
Fought my fear in, I did not run
I was not done

And I have lived that kind of day
When none of your sorrows will go away
It goes down and down and hit the floor
Down and down and down some more
Depression
But I now there'll be some way
When I can swing everything back my way
Like skyscrapers rising up
Floor by floor, I'm not giving up

So you rock around and think that
You're the toughest
In the world, the whole wide world
But you're streets away from where
It gets the roughest
You ain't been there
This is a song that makes me feel good. It's like, I've had all this shit in my life, growing up poor as all hell, still pretty poor, and trying to make a name for myself in Cinemal.... That last Stanza just rocks.... It's only going to get harder... But as it goes back to singing "I'm Not Down" it's like "Sure, it's going to get harder, but I can handle it."

Run - Snow Patrol

I'll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You've been the only thing that's right
In all I've done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

Light up...

Slower slower
We don't have time for that
All I want is to find an easier way
To get out of our little heads

Have heart my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Making up for all this mess


well, it actually doesn't sound that great now, but it sounds great with the melody and such

Little Boo, but God's got him and I'm gonna miss everybody
I only rolled and blows my gauge looked at him while he lay
When playing with destiny, plays too deep for me to say
Lil' Layzie came to me, told me if he should decease well then please
Bury me by my grand-grand and when you can, come follow me

[Layzie]
God bless you working on a plan to Heaven
Follow the Lord all 24/7 days, GOD is who we praise
even though the devil's all up in my face
But he keeping me safe and in my place, say grace
For the case to race with a chance to face the judge
And I betcha my soul won't budge
Grudge because there's no mercy for thugs
Oh what can I do it's all about our family and how we roll
Can I get a witness let it unfold
We living our lives to eternal our soul aye-oh-aye-oh

[Krayzie]
Prayyyyyyy, and we pray and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
Everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday
and we pray, and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
Still we laced, now follow me roll stroll
Whether is tell of his Heaven
Come let's go take a visit of people that's long gone
Darris, Wally, Eazy, Terry, Boo
It's steadily creeping up on the family
Exactly how many days we got lasting
While you laughing we're passing, passing away
So y'all go rest y'all souls
Cause I know I'ma meet you up at the crossroads
Y'all know y'all forever got love from them Bone Thugs baby

[Wi$h]
Lil Eazy's long gone
Really wish he would come home
But when it's time to die
Gotta go bye bye
All a lil thug could do is cry, cry
Why they kill my dog and man
I miss my uncle Charles y'all
and he shoudn't be gone, in front of his home
What they did to Boo was wrong
Oh so wrong, oh so wrong
Gotta hold on gotta stay strong
When the day comes
Better believe Bone got a shoulder you can lean on (lean on)

Hey and we pray, and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday
and we pray, and we pray, and we pray, and we pray
everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday

[Chorus - Layzie and Krayzie]
See you at the crossroads, crossroads, crossroads
So you won't be lonely
See you at the crossroads, crossroads, crossroads
So you won't be lonely
See you at the crossroads, crossroads
So you won't be lonely
See you at the crossroads, crossroads

[Bizzy]
And I'm gonna miss everybody
And I'm gonna miss everybody when I'm gone
And I'm gonna miss everybody
And I'm gonna miss everybody
And I'm gonna miss everybody

[Layzie]
Living in a hateful world sending me straight to Heaven
That's how we roll
Living in a hateful world sending me straight to Heaven
That's how we roll
Living in a hateful world sending me straight to Heaven
That's how we roll
And I'm asking the good LORD "Why?" and sigh
It's I he told me we live to die

[Krayzie]
What's up with murder y'all, see my little cousin was hung
Somebody was really wrong, everybody want to test us dawg
Then Miss Sleazy set up Eazy to fall, you know why we sinning
And Krayzie intended on ending it when it ends
Wanna come again, again and again
Now tell me whatcha gonna do

[Wi$h]
Can somebody anybody tell me why?
Hey, can somebody anybody tell me why we die, we die?
I don't wanna die

Ohhh so wrong

Not per se my favourite but at least it's the one who marked me the most (at least when I found the translation) It's Embryo (album version) from dir en grey

(Warning : Filty! Filty! Filty!)

Ah a summer morning in 1983, always at the side of my beloved Mama
please smile at me like you always do, the morning light shining on you, distorting your face.

Mama's strangled neck, she hangs lifelessly from the heavens, I guess it's bye bye Mother.
unable to bear the silent tears and deep pain the flower dies, I am alone.

Without a face gasping voice
Without a face distorted voice

come, rape me, until you get it out of your system I'm yours Papa.
But you know, Mama's looking down on us from up there.

My Sweet Mother smile, cause my heart's about to tear apart laughing.
Deadly Sweet Mother the hate spreads with the nausea,
but i'll be patient and hold it in, while he fucks me.

Now it's a winter night in 1992, always at the side of the Papa I despise.
well, today, like always he's fucking me again,
I keep my eyes open to remember the look in Papa's eyes.

I fiercely plunge what I had hidden straight and deep into the back of his neck bye bye Father
Naked. The deep-red flowers blooming in the winter scenery, blossoming as a sea of blood,
I am alone.

My Sweet Mother smile, cause my heart's about to tear apart laughing
Deadly Sweet Mother with the hate the tears running down my cheek dry up, the season dries up
My Sweet Mother smile, cause my heart's about to tear apart laughing
Deadly Sweet Mother The child I'm pregant with is crying, but I'll hold down the vomit.

Grand Theft Autumn ~ Fall Out Boy
This is a good song I like it and if you bad rep me for liking it well you're mean!
Here are the lyrics:
Where is your boy tonight?
I hope, he is a gentleman..
And maybe he won't find out what I know:
You were the last good thing about this part of town..
When I wake up..
I'm willing to take my chances on
the hope i forget,
that you hate him more than you notice
I wrote this for you (for you, So)
D'you need him .. I should be him
I could be an accident but I'm still tryin'
And that's more than I can say for him
Where Is your boy tonight?
I hope, he is a gentleman..
And maybe he won't find out what I know:
You were the last good thing about this part of town
Someday I'll appreciate in value
Get off my a** and call you
In the mean time I'll sport my brand new fashion
Of waking up with pants on at four in the afternoon
D'you need him .. I should be him
I could be an accident but I'm still tryin'
And that's more than I can say for him
(ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!)
Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman
and maybe he won't find out what I know,
You were the last good thing about this part of town
(Won't find out ... He wont find out ... Won't find out ... He Wont find out)
Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman..
Maybe he wont find out what I know:
that you were the last good thing about this part of town..
Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman
Maybe he wont find out what I know:

some Disturbed lyrics that have been flosting around in my head

As it's blown apart, hundreds thrown away
Makes me question just what I believe
Brothers torn apart, mindless drones enslaved
Makes me search for an answer
I don't want to know
It's like a plague from below
Killing all that I know
One hundred voices the same
Drench their sorrow in fame

Beverly Hills ~ Weezer
What a great song anyway here are the lyrics:

Where I come from isn't all that great
My automobile is a piece of crap
My fashion sense is a little whack
And my friends are just as screwy as me
I didn't go to boarding schools
Preppy girls never looked at me
Why should they, I ain't nobody
Got nothing in my pocket
Beverly Hills... That's where I want to be! (gimme, gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly Hills... Rolling like a celebrity! (gimme, gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Look at all those movie stars
They're all so beautiful and clean
When the housemaids scrub the floors
They get the spaces in between
I wanna live a life like that
I wanna be just like a king
Take my picture by the pool
Cause I'm the next big thing in
Beverly Hills... That's where I want to be! (gimme,gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly Hills... Rolling like a celebrity! (gimme, gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...
*Spoken*
Truth is...I don't stand a chance
It's something that you're born into...
And I just don't belong...
No I don't - I'm just a no class, beat down fool
And I will always be that way
I might as well enjoy my life
And watch the stars play
Beverly Hills... That's where I want to be! (gimme, gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly Hills... Rolling like a celebrity! (gimme, gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly hills,Beverly hills,(yeah)
Beverly hills,Beverly hills,(gimme,gimme)
Living in Beverly hills

"Imagine Me" By: Kirk Franklin

Imagine me
Loving what I see when the mirror looks at me cuz I
I imagine me
In a place of no insecurities
And i'm finally happy cuz
I imagine me

Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me
Cuz they never did deserve me
Can you imagine me
Saying no to thoughts that try to control me
Remembering all you told me
Lord can you imagine me
Over what ma mama said
And healed from what my daddy did
And I wanna live and not read that page again

[Chorus:]
Imagine me, being free, trusting you totally finally I can...
Imagine me
I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me
But finally I can...
Imagine me

Being strong
And not letting people break me down
You won't get that joy this time around can you imagine me
In a world where nobody has t o live afraid
Because of your love fears gone away
Can you imagine me

[Bridge:]
Letting go of my past
And glad I have another chance
And my heart will dance
'Cause I don't have to read that page again

[Chorus x2]

[Vamp:]
Gone, gone, it's gone, all gone
