sparklehorse - shade and honey

i could look in your face
for a thousand years
it's like a civil war
of pain and of cheer
but if you was a horse
i could help you with your chains
i could ride you through the fields
by your fiery mane

may your shade be sweet
and float upon the lakes
where the sun will be made of honey

i'll cry diamonds while you burn
cause no one here can save you
she's returning to the earth
but one day she'll be silver
stars are dying in my chest
until i see you again
she was born with the wings of a hawk
but now she combs her hair with blood

the national, slow show

i wanna hurry home to you
put on a slow, dumb show for you
and crack you up
so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
god i'm very, very frightening
i'll overdo it

you know i dreamed about you
for twenty-nine years before i saw you
you know i dreamed about you
i missed you for
for twenty-nine years

Don't Let Your Walls Down
The Rasmus, sail away

Once upon a time we had a lot to fight for
We had a dream, we had a plan
Sparks in the air we spread a lot of envy
Didn't have to care once upon a time

Remember when I swore
My love was never ending
And you and I would never die
Remember when I swore
We had it all
We had it all

Sail away, it's time to leave
Rainy days are yours to keep
Fade away, the night is calling my name
You will stay, I'll sail away

Once upon a time we used to burn candles
We had a place to call a home
The dream that we lived
was better than divine
Everyday was like a gift
Once upon a time

Remember when you swore
Your love was never ending
That you and I will never die
Remember when you swore
We had it all
We'd never fall

Steven, don’t you know that I be breathin’
Steven, I wish you weren’t leavin’

Trent
RHCP - My Friends

My friends are so depressed
I feel the question
Of your loneliness
Confide... `cause Ill be on your side
You know I will, you know I will

X girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate
On the prison phone
They want... to give her 7 years
For being sad

Chorus :
I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you dont know yourself

My friends are so distressed
And standing on
The brink of emptiness
No words... I know of to express
This emptiness

Chorus :
Imagine me taught by tragedy
Release is peace
I heard a little girl
And what she said
Was something beautiful
To give... your love
No matter what

the national - ada

ada don't stay in the lake too long
it lives alone and it barely knows you
it'll have a nervous breakdown and fall
into a thousand pieces around you

stand inside an empty tuxedo with grapes in my mouth
waiting for ada
ada hold onto yourself by the sleeves
i think everything counts a little more than we think

Daniel Johnston - Poor You

Every morning he got up dreading each moment he had to be awake
He’d look at the floor and scribble on gum wrappers
He never found a better way to joke around
The clock would tick, time was slow
There wasn’t anywhere that he wouldn’t go to avoid
Having to see anyone
He’d sit in a chair and lean against the wall
He just didn’t seem to matter much at all
But late at night, he had a savior
In his sleep, in his dreams
She came to him and she said
Poor you, poor you
No one understands you
Poor you, poor you
And every word that everyone would say
Got mumbled up in his head
Like mumblejumble and everywhere he went
It seemed everyone was saying to him
Blah Blah Blah
But late at night, he had a mistress
In his dreams, in his sleep,
And she would say
Poor you, poor you
No one understands you
Poor you, poor you
This story, though not well told, is not that old
It’s not that funny, it’s not that great
But I know it to be true
Because late at night, I have an angel
In my dreams, in my sleep
And as she runs her fingers through my hair
As I lay on her lap and she says
Poor you, poor you
No one understands you
Poor you, poor you

Don't Let Your Walls Down
In the orchard- Tiger Army

The seasons of my life, I watched them pass
The blossomes of spring fall, leaving only winter's naked branch
I remember you and me, In the Orchard

As the days of youth, slip farther from my grasp
Still it haunts me, like a song i cant forget
And now frost covers the ground, In the Orchard

And when the spark of life is almost gone
The seasons slow then stop, and I'll see spring no more
It calls me into forever, In the Orchard

Cattle Decapitation - Testicular Manslaughter

Perpetual multiplier
Procreating bastard
Ever had your gonads smashed by a ball-peen hammer?
Ever been forced into a vasectomy by and axe-wielding homovore?
Do you know the word pain?
You will when the mallet falls
Again and again and again and again…

I've a shotgun aimed at your testicles
To shred your testes and sever adjacent vesicles
Cold vengeance on a rapist
Immediate testicular shape-shift
Your manhood disintegrates and the stream starts to flood
A shimmering mix of spermatozoa and blood

Another human off the face of the earth
A new vagina to replace it's absence of girth
It rubs the feces on it's skin
Or else it gets the hammer again…

Torture
Through blunt castration
Slaughter
Repeated testicular emaciation

For your gross misconduct
The tables are rightfully turned
The urethra now a bile duct
The frayed ends of karma are burned
A gaping gash of reproduction
Seminal waste of testosterone that ceases to function
Asexual freak
No longer of the male persuasion
Your miserable heap of disfigurementation
Brings thousands of victims vengeance and elation.
Sulphur and buckshot
Decimating your crotch

Cannibal Corpse - Entrails Ripped From a Virgin's Cunt

Alive alone now that they've gone dead but unburied
I've seen it unfold, terrible scenes of agony
Eyes in the darkness
Echoing their madness

The sights that have passed before them
Watching as though it has never happened
Now I only listen to what is not spoken

Murder, hatred
Anger, Savage
Killings I have caused
more than can be counted
orgies of sadism
And sexual perversion
Virgin
Tied to my mattress
Legs spread wide
Ruptured bowel, yanked
From her insides
Devirginized with my knife
Internally bleeding
Vagina, secreting
her blood-wet pussy
I am eating
on her guts I am feeding
Mutilated with a machete
I fucked her dead body
The first and last
Your life's only romance
My knife's jammed in your ass
As you die you orgasm

Pass on to the dead
Nerve trembling convulsions
No longer looking human

I never see them, but I know they're there
Locked in my subconcious
Obscene memories I thought I'd forgotten
Haunting unrealities
Tear at me
Hold her arms
Her mouth taped shut
Screams unheard
Out pour her guts

Layers of flesh peeling away
Languish in your own decay
descriptions of my killings
bone chilling

Terror, tear, her
Virgin cunt

Virgins are my victims
Their tight interiors I explore
Sharpened utensils of torture
Now inserted inside of her
Sex organs extracted for eating
On her liver I am gnawing

Forbidden lust for guts
Ripped from her cunt
Tears of blood cry down her thigh

I ram my fist inside her hole
From her crotch piss now flows
Rectum filled with shit
I fucked her emptied body
Until she became stiff

Cephalic Carnage - Anthro-Emesis

Perverse the earth, with your greed and disgust
Intervals of sodomy you are Tiberius
Imperial debauchery, raping the sons of man
Ruled his world with tyranny, his conquest just began.

Concubines of erotica, sado-sexual friezes
Apocalyptic perversion, bulimia orgy
Decrepit senile leader would spend his final days
Doused in emesis, for five years he would train Caligula
Heir to the throne, excessive sexual traits
Unleashing torpid emissions, into his servants everyday.

Practicing carnal lust while in Capri
Caligula learned the laws of blasphemy
To rule with an iron first
Convinced Marco to asphyxiate
Tiberius with his cum stained sheets.

Gaius new Caesar of Rome.

Raped at birth sacred curse, gladiator man of force
Bred to kill, elegant, incestuous tryst for months and months
Impregnating his sister young, to conceive a pure bred son
But he couldn't wait, engorging the unborn.

Pickled fetus worshipped
Divine mongoloid
Was fucked in effigy.

Murdering the wealthy
Spending up the coffers
Depleting the reserves.

Exotic animals, slain into extinction
To appease the plebian scum, in public view
Caligula would be anally-intruding Druisilla
While being copulated by a mighty slave-gladiator
The massive crowd ejaculate in approval.

Don't Let Your Walls Down
Where the moss slowly grows- Tiger Army

And so another journey has come to an end
Another moment passed that will not, will not come again
Resting in the shade of oaks, so it has always been
And its true that i'll miss you but i'll see, i'll see you again
I'll see you again

Embrace, destroy this pain
Don't miss this chance it will not come again
You mean more than you may ever know
Don't linger where the moss slowly grows

There are so many things I wish I could've said
It might not have changed your mind but sometimes we just need oval edge
Above the mountains shadow the sunset timly glows
The oaks will look down on our heads forever and our dreams will be no more
We should not ever let them go

Embrace, destroy this pain
Don't miss this chance it will not come again
You mean more than you may ever know
Don't linger where the moss slowly grows

I remember those summers stretched on without end
Future comes so loudly and the oaks, the oaks were silent then
Silence forever, conversations in my head
Might not have changed your mind but if we'd spoken
Here's what i'd have said
Here's what I would've said....

Embrace, destroy this pain
Don't miss this chance it will not come again
You mean more than you may ever know
Don't linger where the moss slowly grows

Korpiklaani - Väkirauta

Viere vaino, vihavieras,
Kulki kauhu, Hiien heitto,
Polki mannert', anturaine
Tarpahutti tuhokoura.

Sai se yhen vastahansa,
Yhen miehen mäkimailta,
Kera vasken valituimman,
Rautakouran eikkuvimman.

Veti miekan, riisti rauan,
Tempo, tuisko, terävällä!
Väisi, viilti, veisti, voitti!
Maistoi mustaa mahtia.

Turmel' päitä tappoteivas,
Välähytti väkirauta.
Repi, ruhjo, raiskas', riehki,
Vihaan sorti, vainolaisen.

Helkky loiste metsämailta,
Valokannel vaarahilta,
Soitto soiton sankarista,
Veisti virren voittajasta:

Se on Kauko Suomen seppo,
Tannermaitten takomiesi,
Kuka tako mahtirauan,
Kalkutteli väkivasken.

Riemu, rauha, rajuköyry,
Voittovakka vimmatuuli,
Vallitsevi vaarahilla,
Mekastavi metsämailla.

the decemberists - the bachelor and the bride
there's a wrinkle in the water
where we laid our first daughter
and i think the wind blows so sweetly there
over there

and the windows and the cinders
and the willows in the timbers
the infernal rattling of the rain
still remains

"but i," said the bachelor to the bride
"am not waiting for tonight
no, i will box your ears
and leave you here stripped bare"

hear the corn crakes and the deer hooves
and the sleet rain on the slate roof
a medallion locked inside her hands
in her hands

and his fingers are they telling
of the barren of her belly
and his callouses cure her furrowed brow
even now

"but i," said the bachelor to the bride
"am not waiting for tonight
no, i will box your ears
and leave you here stripped bare"

"but i," said the bachelor to the bride
"am not waiting for tonight
no, i will box your ears
and take your tears
and leave you, leave you here
stripped bare"

the law is no protection
A new iron curtain drawn across
the 49th parallel.
Cut all diplomatic ties as we expel
all American dignitaries
and issue a nation-wide
travel advisory for any others left inside.
Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide.

The burned out shells of south-bound traffic lay
strewn along a cold
stretch of would-be interstate.
Still visible below,
below their charred remains: Pax Americana plates.

Your stupid fucking laser-pucks™ were just the start.
And while you may stand six full cubits and a span,
we got a shepherd’s sling and five stones in our hand
and the battle of 1812 lives in our hearts.

We don’t care if we’re destroyed.
We’ll never capitulate.
We’ll take the whole fucking world down,
down with us in flames.

Just a speculative fiction.
No cause for alarm.
We got a good 15 years left
'til the United We Stand
murals on West Broadway finally fade
and we wave good-bye to your sad, childish refrains.
Exchanged with other stupid lullabies
like you can have my guns when you pry
them from my cold dead hands.

Just a speculative fiction.

Don't Let Your Walls Down
Green Fields of France- Eric Bogle

Well, how do you do, Private William McBride,
Do you mind if I sit down here by your graveside?
And rest for awhile in the warm summer sun,
I've been walking all day, and I'm nearly done.
And I see by your gravestone you were only 19
When you joined the glorious fallen in 1916,
Well, I hope you died quick and I hope you died clean
Or, Willie McBride, was it slow and obscene?

Did they Beat the drum slowly, did the play the pipes lowly?
Did the rifles fir o'er you as they lowered you down?
Did the bugles sound The Last Post in chorus?
Did the pipes play the Flowers of the Forest?

And did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind
In some loyal heart is your memory enshrined?
And, though you died back in 1916,
To that loyal heart are you forever 19?
Or are you a stranger without even a name,
Forever enshrined behind some glass pane,
In an old photograph, torn and tattered and stained,
And fading to yellow in a brown leather frame?

The sun's shining down on these green fields of France;
The warm wind blows gently, and the red poppies dance.
The trenches have vanished long under the plow;
No gas and no barbed wire, no guns firing now.
But here in this graveyard that's still No Man's Land
The countless white crosses in mute witness stand
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man.
And a whole generation who were butchered and damned.

And I can't help but wonder, no Willie McBride,
Do all those who lie here know why they died?
Did you really believe them when they told you "The Cause?"
Did you really believe that this war would end wars?
Well the suffering, the sorrow, the glory, the shame
The killing, the dying, it was all done in vain,
For Willie McBride, it all happened again,
And again, and again, and again, and again.

nas - these are our heroes (coon picnic)

Nas: "This ain't for everybody. Y'all know who y'all are
Yeah you, y'all know who y'all are. These are our
heroes."

[Chorus: Nas]
Let's hear it, one for the coons on UPN 9 and WB
Who 'Yes Massa' on TV, what ever happened to Wheezy? The Red Fox's?
Never got Emmy's but were real to me
Let's hear it, two for the spooks who do cartwheels
'Cause they said they played they parts well
Now they claim caviar, hate that oxtail
Lambda Sigma Phi badge on lapel
Whitey always tell him, "Ooh, he speak so well"
Are you the one we look to, the decent Negro?
The acceptable Negro -- hell nah
But they say, "These are our heroes"

[Verse 1: Nas]
Uh, Massa used to breed us to be bigger to go play
Athletes of today in the NBA, make me proud
But there's somethin' they don't say
Keep gettin' accused for abusin' White pussay
From OJ to Kobe, uh let's call him Tobe
First he played his life cool just like Michael
Now he rock ice too just like I do
Yo, you can't do better than that?
The hotel clerk who adjusts the bathroom mat?
Now you lose sponsorships that you thought had your back
Yeah, you beat the rap jiggaboo, fake nigga you
You turn around then you shit on Shaq
Who woulda knew, Mr. Goodie-Two-Shoes
He love a little butt crack, got enough cash
Little kids with they bus pass who look up to you
To do something for the youth, stupid spoof
But you let them use you as an example
They would rep, but our heroes got they hands full

[Chorus]

[Verse 2: Nas]
You Homey The Clown, bowtie, apple pie, Bo Jangles
But we love Bo Jangles, we know what he came through
But what's your excuse, duke? You talk Black
but your album sound like you give your nuts for a plaque
You don't ride for the facts like um, say Scarface
You don't know what you feel, y'all too safe
Election done came and went, y'all worked so hard for it
Huh, and in the end we all got dicked
These are our heroes, thanks a lot public school systems still rot
Still harassed by cops, snitches on blocks
Sellin they peoples out - some real folks with clout
Tavis Smiley, Michael Eric Dyson
Stokely Carmichael, let's try to be like them
Nicky Giovanni poetical black female
Jim Brown to the people who sing well from
Fela to Miriam Makeba
The mirror says you are the next American leader
So don't be, acceptin new 'We are the World' records
These pickaninnies get with anything to sell records
Cause it's trendy to be the conscious MC
But next year, who knows what we'll see?
Ha-Ha, these are our heroes

[Chorus]

Nas: "Yeah, I wanna give a special shoutout to the -- y'know
the crew doin' they thing out there reppin' us hard
Big up to Tiger Woods. Yeah, ya don't stop. Big up
to Cuba Gooding Jr. Y'know, yeah, y'know. Tay Diggs
what up my nigga. Yeah, ha-ha. And you don't quit
and ya don't quit, and ya don't stop and ya don't quit."

Male Heckler: "Yeah-Yeah, what you doin' for the hood though
homie? What you doin' for the hood, man? Look at
all that paper. Drivin' around like a playboy in
my hood. What type of shit is that?"

*overlapping dialogue*

Nas: "I'm outta here. Please, excuse me, 'xcuse me -- please
Let me get to my limousine, I'm outta here. I know, I
got a plane to catch. And I love you back. Ha-Ha
yeah yeah -- And I'm outta here. A-ha-ha -- PEACE."

Thug Heckler: "Come on nigga, give back to the hood. Cocky
motherfucker!"

More metal ...

Sunn O))) - "Bàthory Erzsébet"

Here. Decompose forever, aware and unholy, encased in marble
and honey from the swarm, a thin coat of eternal whispering
that bleaches from within, a darkness that defiles thought,
stolen by the wingless harpies whose memories lay waste the valley of diamonds,
where the great One sleeps, her eyes,
placid pits of violent tar and bitumen regurgitated by demons chained to misery,
eyes that see nothing for there is only the darkness that wells up from inside,
a great viscous cloud smothering hope,
a blanket woven from the dung of the old ones,
their disease the tapestry of all that is futile,
her gaze burning holes in the veil that protects the chosen,
her breathe a plague that unleashes the frozen wolves, blind,
their tongues paint your heart with scorpions,
their pestilence an invitation to the only one that matters for
She is the presence that is all that is un-named, for it is Her,
the unbegotten Mistress of the eternal hunger,
dwell forever in her great unholy stomach where the damned befoul themselves in
the glory of her fecund and bloody history,
worship in the torment of a million wasted lives,
bathe in the horror that the blood of time carries with the plague,
and befoul yourself with worship,
for she hates you eternally with the ferocious lust that binds all that inhabit
the wasted and forgotten, the blissful loathing of you is now all that remains,
alone, forgotten and Damned.

Requiem - M. Ward

Well he stormed with his feet
And he clapped with his hands
He summoned all of his joy when he laughed
It suffered all of his joy when he cried

And sometimes when he got into talking
Man he could rattle all day long
He was a good man and now he's gone

Well in war he was a tiger
When it was over like a dove
He summoned all of his strength in the climb
It suffered all of his strength in the fall

And sometimes when he got into fighting
Man he could fight with you all day long
He was a good man and now he's gone

He put his trust in a higher power
He held his power like a holy grail
He summoned all of his faith in the lifting
It suffered all of his faith in the fail

His heart was stronger than a heavy metal bullet
And that's why I dedicate this song
He was a good man and now he's gone

His heart was stronger than a heavy metal bullet
And that's why I dedicate this song
He was a good man and now he's gone

Drunk by Myself
Ne-Yo - Do You?

Maybe this decision was a mistake.
You probably don't care what I have to say.
But it's been heavy on my mind for months now.
Guess I'm trying to clear some mental space.
I would love to talk to you in person.
But I understand why that can't be.
I'll leave you alone for good I promise.
If you answer this one question for me.

I just wonder,
Do you ever,
Think of me,
Anymore, do you?

First off let me say congragulations.
Heard that you just had a baby girl.
If she looks anything like her mother,
She's the prettiest thing in the world.
Swear that I'm not tryin' to start no trouble.
Tell your fiance he can relax.
I'll leave you alone for good I promise,
There's a question I just gotta ask.

I just wonder,
Do you ever,
Think of me,
Anymore, do you?

I know what we have is dead and gone.
Too many times I made you cry.
And I don't mean to interupt your life.
I just wonder do I cross your mind?

I just wonder,
Do you ever,
Think of me,
Anymore, do you?

I just wonder
Do you ever
Think of me
Anymore
Do you?

I just wonder
Do you ever
Think of me
Anymore
Do you?

I just wonder
Do you ever
Think of me
Anymore
Do you?

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Don't Let Your Walls Down
Amaranth- Nightwish

Baptized with a perfect name
The doubting one by heart
Alone without himself

War between him and the day
With someone to blame
In the end little he can do alone
You believe at what you see
You recieve at what you give

There is the one
The never-fading rain in your heart
That chooses snow-white sorrow
There is the one, the hiding Amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

A path in the wandering eye
In this brief line of time
We reach for the one to ever dare
You believe at what you see
You recieve at what you give

There is the one
The never-fading rain in your heart
That chooses snow-white sorrow
There is the one, the hiding Amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

There is the one
The never-fading rain in your heart
That chooses snow-white sorrow
There is the one, the hiding Amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

Preaching, searching
for something untouched
Hearing voices of the never-fading howling

There is the one
The never-fading rain in your heart
That chooses snow-white sorrow
There is the one, the hiding Amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

There is the one
The never-fading rain in your heart
That chooses snow-white sorrow
There is the one, the hiding Amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

Tom Waits - "Martha"

Operator, number, please:
Its been so many years
Will she remember my old voice
While I fight the tears?
Hello, hello there, is this Martha?
This is old Tom Frost,
And I am calling long distance,
Don't worry bout the cost.
cause its been forty years or more,
Now Martha please recall,
Meet me out for coffee,
Where well talk about it all.

And those were the days of roses,
Poetry and prose and Martha
All I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows,
Wed packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I feel so much older now,
And you're much older too,
Hows your husband?
And hows the kids?
You know that I got married too?
Lucky that you found someone
To make you feel secure,
cause we were all so young and foolish,
Now we are mature.

And those were the days of roses,
Poetry and prose and Martha
All I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows,
Wed packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I was always so impulsive,
I guess that I still am,
And all that really mattered then
Was that I was a man.
I guess that our being together
Was never meant to be.
And Martha, Martha,
I love you cant you see?

And those were the days of roses,
Poetry and prose and Martha
All I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows,
Wed packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I remember quiet evenings
Trembling close to you...

---------

I've been listening to a lot of old Tom Waits lately, and this song just sticks out for some reason. The piano playing in it is almost too simple, but the delivery of the lyrics is spot-on.

And now, a new Tom Waits song (back from 2002).

Tom Waits - "Alice"

It's dreamy weather we're on
You waved your crooked wand
Along an icy pond with a frozen moon
A murder of silhouette crows I saw
And the tears on my face
And the skates on the pond
They spell Alice

I disappear in your name
But you must wait for me
Somewhere across the sea
There's a wreck of a ship
Your hair is like meadow grass on the tide
And the raindrops on my window
And the ice in my drink
Baby all I can think of is Alice

Arithmetic arithmetock
Turn the hands back on the clock
How does the ocean rock the boat?
How did the razor find my throat?
The only strings that hold me here
Are tangled up around the pier

And so a secret kiss
Brings madness with the bliss
And I will think of this
When I'm dead in my grave
Set me adrift and I'm lost over there
And I must be insane
To go skating on your name
And by tracing it twice
I fell through the ice
Of Alice

And so a secret kiss
Brings madness with the bliss
And I will think of this
When I'm dead in my grave
Set me adrift and I'm lost over there
And I must be insane
To go skating on your name
And by tracing it twice
I fell through the ice
Of Alice
There's only Alice

weirdest lyrics ever, but pretty good song.

http://www.wingedleopard.net/lucas/music/entry/142/

Clearly you’re wondering
Glowing so hot from him – pink-like shivers
Turn around, let me tie your string, stand still – this isn’t easy
All these weights and wires must make a skinny girl tired
All these weights and wires must make a skinny girl tired

What’s the difference between what this is and what it was?
Well, you got your pretty white bird and
Well, you got your dove

If that’s what gets you off, I can't compete with the thrilling of Claire
All the after effects of three girls on two girls, I'll just help you finish off

We’ll be their pet, we’ll wear their collar
Into the flame and off to the movies
The thrilling of Claire, for the thrilling of Claire
The thrilling of Claire, for the thrilling of Claire

We’ll be their pet, we’ll wear their collar
Into the flame and off to the movies
The thrilling of Claire, for the thrilling of Claire
Into the flame and off to the movies
The thrilling of Claire, for the thrilling of Claire

Clearly you’re wondering
Glowing so hot from him – pink-like shivers
Turn around, let me tie your string, stand still – this isn’t easy
All these weights and wires must make a skinny girl tired
All these weights and wires must make a skinny girl tired

What’s the difference between what this is and what it was?
Well, you got your pretty white bird and
Well, you got your dove

We’ll be their pet, we’ll wear their collar
Into the flame and off to the movies
The thrilling of Claire, for the thrilling of Claire
The thrilling of Claire, for the thrilling of Claire

We’ll be their pet, we’ll wear their collar
Into the flame and off to the movies
The thrilling of Claire, for the thrilling of Claire
Into the flame and off to the movies

Into the flame and off to the movies

Don't Let Your Walls Down
Safe Home- Anthrax

Ive been down this road once or twice before
Through the open door
I come falling through it
Theres a sign post up ahead
Like a watershed
And it opens my eyes
Ways, for me to begin
To be born again
And knowing for the first time
Ways, all so differently
Shine for me to see
The better man that I am

Ive been places in my head
Behind me worse than whats ahead
And on my path just like a dream
Takes me from the inbetween
From out of nowhere you came strong as stone
And now Ill never have to be alone
What it is I know

You have always been my safe home
I walk, I run, I burn out into you
You have always been my safe home
My whole world has moved on

I know what I am and Ill always be
Your reality, is better than I could dream
All my fears turn from black to white
And Id stand and fight
The whole world for you
Faith, and destiny
I never did believe
My only God is love and
Faith, what I see in you
And I can hold it true
Like a weight in my hand

radiohead - jigsaw falling into place

just as you take my hand
just as you write my number down
just as the drinks arrive
just as they play your favourite song
as your bad mood disappears
no longer wound up like a spring
before you've had too much
come back in focus again

the walls abandon shape
they've got a cheshire cat grin
all blurring into one
this place is on a mission
before the night owl
before the animal noises
closed circuit cameras
before you're comatose

before you run away from me
before you're lost between the notes
the beat goes round and round
the beat goes round and round
i never really got there
i just pretended that i had
what's the point of instruments
words are a sawed off shotgun

come on and let it out
come on and let it out
come on and let it out
come on and let it out

before you run away from me
before you start unravelling
before you take my mic
just as you dance, dance, dance

jigsaws falling into place
there is nothing to explain
regard each other as you pass
she looks back, you look back
not just once
not just twice
wish away the nightmare
wish away the nightmare
you've got a light you can feel it on your back
you've got a light you can feel it on your back

Don't Let Your Walls Down
The Last Indifference of Heaven ~ Warren Zevon

Time marches on
Time stands still
Time on my hands
Time to kill
Blood on my hands
And my hands in the till
Down at the 7-11
Gentle rain
Falls on me
All life folds back
Into the sea
We contemplate eternity
Beneath the vast indifference of heaven

The past seems realer than the present to me now
I've got memories to last me
When the sky is gray
The way it is today
I remember the times when I was happy

Same old sun
Same old moon
It's the same old story
Same old tune
They all say
Someday soon
My sins will all be forgiven
Gentle rain
Falls on me
All life folds back
Into the sea
We contemplate eternity
Beneath the vast indifference of heaven

They say "Everything's all right"
They say "Better days are near"
They tell us "These are the good times"
But they don't live around here
Billy and Christie don't--
Bruce and Patti don't--
They don't live around here

I had a girl
Now she's gone
She left town
Town burned down
Nothing left
But the sound
Of the front door closing forever

Gentle rain
Falls on me
All life folds back
Into the sea
We contemplate eternity
Beneath the vast indifference of heaven

Voltaire - Zombie Prostitute

I was alone, and I needed a date;
I was takin' a walk past the cemetery gate
When I, I saw a sign that said "For a good time
"Take a left down at Tombstone Number 8".
Went to the gateway, and I'm pretty sure I
Saw some eyes peepin' out of a "sepulture", I
Took a step into the Tomb of Ill Repute
That's where I met her, the Zombie Prostitute

I grabbed her left breast, and I'm pretty sure I tore it
I said "go down", but she didn't have the stomach for it
Buck teeth fell out, and her tongue fell out to boot,
But all in all, she was a rotten kind'a cute.
While I was tense, it was plain to see
A sort of rigor mortis was comin' over me
I didn't want to see it, but I just had to believe it
I had a stiffy for the stiff in front'a me.

Morally, I'm destitute
In the Tomb of Ill repute
She's a rotten kind'a cute
For a Zombie Prostitute.

(violin, cello, and trumpet/cornet solos)

Now I'm fallin' apart from my head down to my toes, I don't know
Which of my organs is the next to go
I've been such a sleaze since she gave me the disease
Wouldn't you know, now I'm a Zombie Gigolo
I took my first client on a date
We took a walk to the cemetery gate
I got under her slip, but then, I heard a rip
I pulled it out, and I said..."baby, keep the tip"

Morally, I'm destitute
In the Tomb of Ill repute
She's a rotten kind'a cute
For a Zombie Prostitute.

Alias - Watching Water

I'm trying to break this writer's cramp, massage my hand and daydream
Out the window innuendo, watch the water find it's path down the glass
It seems, erratic direction, it's only perfection
Rest my head inside my hands, pace back and forth inside my mind
I wish sometimes I wouldn't reminisce so much
such things, tend to make one reflect and dissect situations to an extreme
Hard now to redeem what was there before
No more gone are those days and ways have parted
Gone from feeling solid trust to outsmarted
Anyway, I'm now moving on to a distance far from yesterday
It's best this way
I feel as though I've missed this moment of truth
Outcome uneventful. I've lost the ability to feel sentimental
I can stare at a puddle and see a million places I love
It's comforting thoughts of places I've been, places I will never see again
Send my love to all who were there, wishing I could crawl back in
But I've transformed and the pieces wouldn't fit, so the sorenecks will cease
Eyes searching to the sky to try to find some form of peace
And I keep pulling up blanks, yet I'm wearing this mask for the sake of others
We all miss things I suppose, we must let go, well I'm not ready
Just let me sit in silence and soak in what's trailing down the window
to cleanse my emotions, to begin the process of preparing myself

Johnny Hobo - Church Hymn for the Condemned

Life's like the feeling when you had a point but forgot it
Had a ticket for my train of thought but I lost it
God gave me instructions on how to live my life
But I could read his handwriting so i burnt them last night

But I take the beauty of chaos over ugly perfection
I've woken up on the wrong side of the bed every day since 1987
I can feel myself slipping away from any chance of redemption
But that's okay 'cause if it's where Falwell goes then I don't even want any part of heaven

A guy on TV offered to save my soul toll free
But that would have required getting up off the couch so I was too lazy
Instead I wait in the bushes outside of a cop's house holding a twelve guage
God isn't dead but I'll get that bastard someday!

And I take the beauty of my chaos over any one else's perfection
I've still woken up on the wrong side of the bed every day since 1987
Nothing scares me as much as the fact that I don't give a shit for redemption
But that's okay 'cause if it's where Limbaugh goes then I don't even want any part of heaven

Johnny Hobo - Acid Song

Well if I found god anywhere, it would be by the tracks
Face down in a box car, forty in both hands
And when I find god there, we’ll just sit and roll some top
Cause he’ll be just as confused as anyone else on this rock

I took two tabs of acid yesterday afternoon
And I woke up this morning with a torn pair of shoes
And found I’d ruined my life and everyone else’s too
I guess this is what my teachers warned me drugs would do

But they forgot to mention the way
That the morphine makes the pain go away
And how I’ll always remember the good times in my spine
And the holes I burned in my brain with this next line

If I found satan anywhere it would be by the tracks
Trading souls of kids like me for cheap bags of smack
When I find satan there you know I won’t be thinking twice
Cause at least in hell there’s rock ‘n roll and ain’t no jesus christ

And I swear I left my sanity someplace in this mess
Crumpled between empty beers and packs of cigarettes
Kick my last hope to pieces and just hope for the best
I guess this is why my friends warned me against hopelessness

But they’re the one’s getting laid
And I’m the one waking up lonely every single day
And I’ll remember that as I listen to their crap
And tell them to fuck off, then hug them after that

Well if I found god anywhere it would be by the tracks
Huffin whippits down as he watches the trains pass
When I find god there I’ll watch him pass out throwning up
Cause he’s cried himself to sleep every night since the one that he made us

Leonard Cohen - One of Us Cannot be Wrong

I lit a thin green candle
To make you jealous of me,
But the room just filled up with mosquitoes
They heard that my body was free
Then I took the dust of a long sleepless night
And I put it in your little shoe,
Then I confess that I tortured the dress
That you wore for the world to look through.

I showed my heart to the doctor
He said Id just have to quit
Then he wrote himself a prescription
And your name was mentioned in it,
Then he locked himself in a library shelf
With the details of our honeymoon
And I hear from the nurse that hes gotten much worse
And his practice is all in a ruin.

I heard of a saint who had loved you
So I studied all night in his school
He taught that the duty of lovers
Is to tarnish the golden rule,
And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure
He drowned himself in the pool,
His body is gone, but back here on the lawn
His spirit continues to drool.

An eskimo showed me a movie
Hed recently taken of you
The poor man could hardly stop shivering,
His lips and his fingers were blue
I suppose that he froze when the wind took your clothes
And I guess he just never got warm
But you stand there so nice in your blizzard of ice
O please let me come into the storm.

When I was a child, everybody smiled
Nobody knows me at all

Very late at night and in the morning light
nobody knows me at all

I've got lots of friends, yes, but then again
nobody knows me at all

kids and a wife, its a beautiful life
nobody knows me at all

and oh, when the lights are low
oh, with someone I don't know

I dont give a damn, i'm happy as a clam
nobody knows me at all

ahh, what can you do? there's nobody like you
nobody knows me at all

Wingnut Dishwashers Union - Free and Alone

Well I've been working on becoming what I am
In this bus terminal bathroom
And these days I dream like I live
Off trash and scammed greyhound passes
Why don't I take a shower ya wonder
I guess what I can't smell
I just can't remember
So I'm doing my best to smell just like this basement forever
Forever-er-er-er-er-er
Well isn't hitchhiking dead they all ask
Not as long as I'm still broke and breathing
And if they don't cut this thumb off my dead fist
Then they can't even stop me by burying me
There ain't nothing like singing your heart out to nobody
As you fall asleep by the side of the road
You know I've never felt quite as free or quite as alone
Or quite as alone



My co-worker/friend who plays this guitar will jam out to it while we briefly overlap at work and we sing it at the top of our lungs.

Leftover Crack - Burn Them Prisons

a lie i once heard: "we're innocent until proved guilty"
but the truth is absurd
we're poor until proved rich
and the scales of justice are fixed by lying pigs

a plot of human terror unfolds behind the precinct door
to cage all the minorities, the immigrants and poor
next they'll hunt the handicapped, disabled blind and deaf
and what will all these piggies do, ha! when there's no one left

swat police in riot gear are bombing us tonight
an all our civil liberties will die by morning's light
while crooked politicians lie and rig the ballot book
we whitewash fake democracy and paint another coat

we'll keep you here to stay; you'll never get away
your property ain't mine, until your dying day
we'll crush your soul inside; there is no easy ride
the hotel's never free and the rooms are always occupied

nice of you to join us welcome to the prison age
financial quest for new frontiers to build a bigger cage
surplus populations growing all around the world
capital invests quick to cage these boys and girls

we'll bomb the police state, assassinate the magistrate
we'll go to every town and burn them fucking prisons down

we'll keep you here to stay; you'll never get away
your property and mine, until your dying day
the court pretenders fake, the judge is on the take
if you wanna find a cop you're gonna have to drag the lake

[spoken:]
capitalism creates such a division between the rich and the poor
that this surplus population is created
and "government" solution has been their containment for increasing petty offenses...

plot of human terror unfolds behind the precinct door
to cage all the minorities, the immigrants and poor
next they'll hunt the handicapped, disabled blind and deaf
and what will all these piggies do, ha! when there's no one left

we'll bomb the police state, assassinate the magistrate
we'll go to every town and burn them fucking prisons down
we'll bomb the police state, assassinate the magistrate
we'll go to every town and burn them fucking prisons down, down

(fucking pigs, fucking pigs,
war against the fucking pigs,
stab them with some dirty rigs,
bury them under dirt and twigs,
gotta hate that gang of fucking pigs.)

Leftover Crack - Atheist Anthem

Atheism, Satanism, Autonomy,
It's all the fuckin' same,
Those straight-edge christ-core motherfuckers,
They don't know shit,
Their just looking for easy answers,
And they're too close minded
To look anywhere beyond their local church,
Or whatever the ignorant masses say is true.

From high up on yer crucifix
You preach about my triple 6
You spit about my this and that
And yank away yer welcome mat
With a coupon Jesus Christ will save
So don't you Christians misbehave
'cuz Santa makes the list himself
And he's rotting on the warehouse shelf

And all the boys in the straight-edge scene
are in the basement huffing gasoline
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Yer god is dead to me!
When the laws of God just make ya pissed
You better become an atheist
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Yer god is dead to me!

When the greed of man is not appeased
All will rot sick and diseased
Once again the fallen towers
The Tortured death of every hour
And at the toll of the final bell
You lead the righteous down to hell
When all the world is dead by dawn
All I ask bring me along!

And all the boys in the straight-edge scene
are in the basement huffing gasoline
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Yer god is dead to me!
When the laws of God just make ya pissed
You better become an atheist
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Yer god is dead to me!

Nuclear Apox spells your doom
like the t.v. in yer living room
each bomb kills a million dead
it melts your skin and implodes yer head
And now you get yer judgement day
You think you'll float up then away
But yer guilty just like everyone
You turn to ash when the burning's done

And all the boys in the straight-edge scene
are in the basement huffing gasoline
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Yer god is dead to me!
When the laws of God just make ya pissed
You better become an atheist
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Yer god is dead to me!

There's a hunger within you
a tapeworm deep inside
or maybe it's just cancer
the doctors can't decide
but yer stomach keeps on growing
as yer body wastes away
and yer getting ill and weaker
every single fucking day

we are alone
we are alone

Propagandhi - Natural Disasters

In which god’s name will we be killed? Who’s most righteous? Who’s most terrified? When your parents left the house we would creep up to their room, to the drawer beside the bed. We would pull out the shining dildo. One side dink, the other side Jesus. Not hedonists. Not atheists. Churchgoers. Blockparents. I wonder what lurks in neighbors’ drawers? The most pristine are hiding everything. Is this our “decaying society”? These are the married ones. What about the others? Don’t condemn your life to be riddled with shame. Everyone’s hands cause natural disasters.



and Propagandhi - Ego Fum Papa (I Am the Pope)

“Live like an angel, die like a devil.” Don’t let it worry you, we’re down here together. We’re all here: heathens, heretics, kids with blue socks. I asked some questions and wasn’t satisfied with the answers. It seems that’s the biggest crime since not fitting in. But we’re all here: King Diamond, todd’s mom, fallen angels, the decimated cultures, the kid in the corner in sweat pants. We’ll find our own way.

Andrew Jackson Jihad - Little Prince

Hey everything, fuck you
I hate everything you do to me
I despise every lie I've come to believe
and I hate every evil thing that I see
this juxtaposition of good and bad
reminds me of the best and the worst dreams I've had
I'm either too happy or fucking sad
and I can't keep up with that
and my job what a shame
just a mountain of death filling up my brain
I'm always tied to the tracks of the train
desperately afraid of going insane
and I like to take advantage of a flock of wild birds
to make to make my escape from this planet
Christ almighty, I am thirsty
I'm forever fat and ugly
stumbling bumbling bastard stubbly
faces will always be hungry
and I don't know if I am capable of helping anyone
I'm at the mercy of emotions of my better friends, my better friends.

Leonard Cohen - Love Calls You by Name

You thought that it could never happen
To all the people that you became,
Your body lost in legend, the beast so very tame.
But here, right here,
Between the birthmark and the stain,
Between the ocean and your open vein,
Between the snowman and the rain,
Once again, once again,
Love calls you by your name.
The women in your scrapbook
Whom you still praise and blame,
You say they chained you to your fingernails
And you climb the halls of fame.
Oh but here, right here,
Between the peanuts and the cage,
Between the darkness and the stage,
Between the hour and the age,
Once again, once again,
Love calls you by your name.

Shouldering your loneliness
Like a gun that you will not learn to aim,
You stumble into this movie house,
Then you climb, you climb into the frame.
Yes, and here, right here
Between the moonlight and the lane,
Between the tunnel and the train,
Between the victim and his stain,
Once again, once again,
Love calls you by your name.

I leave the lady meditating
On the very love which I, I do not wish to claim,
I journey down the hundred steps,
But the street is still the very same.
And here, right here,
Between the dancer and his cane,
Between the sailboat and the drain,
Between the newsreel and your tiny pain,
Once again, once again,
Love calls you by your name.

Where are you, Judy, where are you, Anne?
Where are the paths your heroes came?
Wondering out loud as the bandage pulls away,
Was I, was I only limping, was I really lame?
Oh here, come over here,
Between the windmill and the grain,
Between the sundial and the chain,
Between the traitor and her pain,
Once again, once again,
Love calls you by your name.

Leonard Cohen - So Long, Marianne

Come over to the window, my little darling,
I'd like to try to read your palm.
I used to think I was some kind of Gypsy boy
Before I let you take me home.

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again.

Well you know that I love to live with you,
But you make me forget so very much.
I forget to pray for the angels
And then the angels forget to pray for us.

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began ...

We met when we were almost young
Deep in the green lilac park.
You held on to me like I was a crucifix,
As we went kneeling through the dark.

Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began ...

Your letters they all say that you're beside me now.
Then why do I feel alone?
I'm standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
Is fastening my ankle to a stone.

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began ...

For now I need your hidden love.
I'm cold as a new razor blade.
You left when I told you I was curious,
I never said that I was brave.

Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began ...

Oh, you are really such a pretty one.
I see you've gone and changed your name again.
And just when I climbed this whole mountainside,
To wash my eyelids in the rain!

Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began ...

Bruce Springsteen - Sherry Darlin'
(kinda a classic)

Your Mama's yappin' in the back seat
Tell her to push over and move them big feet
Every Monday morning I gotta drive her down to the unemployment agency
Well this morning I ain't fighting tell her I give up
Tell her she wins if she'll just shut up
But it's the last time that she's gonna be riding with me

You can tell her there's a hot sun beating on the black top
She keeps talkin' she'll be walkin' that last block
She can take a subway back to the ghetto tonight
Well I got some beer and the highway's free
And I got you, and baby you've got me
Hey, hey, hey what you say Sherry Darlin'

Now there's girls melting on the beach
And they're so fine but so out of reach
Cause I'm stuck in traffic down, here on 53rd Street
Now Sherry my love for you is real
But I didn't count on this package deal
And baby this car just ain't big enough for her and me

So you can tell her there's a hot sun beating on the black top
She keeps talkin' she'll be walkin' that last block
She can take a subway back to the ghetto tonight
Well I got some beer and the highway's free
And I got you, and baby you got me
Hey, hey, hey what you say Sherry Darlin'

Well let there be sunlight, let there be rain
Let the brokenhearted love again
Sherry we can run with our arms open before the tide
To all the girls down at Sacred Heart
And all you operators back in the Park
Say hey, hey, hey what you say Sherry Darlin'
Hey, hey, hey what you say Sherry Darlin'

Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us

Strange things are happening everyday
I hear the music up above my head
Though the side of my heart has left me again
I hear music up above

Secrets are written in the sky
Looks like I've lost the love I've never found
Though the sound of hope has left me again
I hear music up above

Standing in my broken heart all night long
Darkness held me like a friend when love was lost
Looking for the land that's hidden in the cross
The finder's love
I know I loved you too much
I'll go alone to get through

I hear Rosetta singing in the night
Echos of lighting shine like stars after there gone
And tonight shes my guide as a girl on the moon
With the music up above

Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Please Read the Letter That I Wrote

Caught out running
With just a little too much to hide
Maybe baby
Everything's gonna work out fine
Please read the letter
I pinned it to your door
It's crazy how it all turned out
We needed so much more

Too late, too late
A fool could read the signs
Maybe baby
You'd better check between the lines
Please read the letter, I
Wrote it in my sleep
With help and consultation from
The angels of the deep

Once I stood beside a well of many words
My house was full of rings and
Charms and pretty birds
Please understand me, my
Walls come falling down
There's nothing here that's left for you
But check with lost and found

Please read the letter that I wrote
Please read the letter that I wrote

One more song just before we go
Remember baby
All the things
We used to know
Please read my letter
And promise you'll keep
The secrets and the memories and
Cherish in the deep

Ah...

Voltaire - Brains!

Well hello there little boy.
Now don't be shy.
Step right up, I'm a reasonable guy.
Don't be frightened by the look in my eye.
I'm just your average evil meteor from outta the sky.
Well, I'm just shy and scared in this place
I'm just a fish outta water from outer space
You can see that the trip has left me tired and drained
So why don't you be a pal...

And bring me some BRAINS!


Go down to your neighbor's place
See the dull expression on his face
You'd be doing him a favor if you brought him to me
He aint using his brain he's just watching TV!
Go down to Mr. McGee's
He hasn't had a thought since '43.
His brain is the portrait of atrophy.
He ain't using it, why not give it to me?

BRAINS, BRAINS, I won't lie,
I'll eat their brains 'til they're zombified.
Sure they might think it's deranged
But they won't give it a thought
After I've eaten they're brain.
BRAINS, BRAINS, It's okay.
It's not a matter if it isn't gray,
And if at first they thinks it's strange,
They won't think twice
If they don't have a brain!

Go down to the Wonton shop,
My fortune cookie says that I just can't stop
I'll suck the noodle right out of their heads
And half an hours later, I'm hungry again!
Creep into the donut stop
Sneak in, tip-toe past the cop.
Pick me up a cruller and a cupful of tea.
And any other sweetbreads you happen to see.

BRAINS, BRAINS, I won't lie,
I'll eat their brains 'til they're zombified.
Sure they might think it's deranged
But they won't give it a thought
After I've eaten they're brain.
BRAINS, BRAINS, It's okay.
It's not a matter if it isn't gray,
And if at first they thinks it's strange,
They won't think twice
If they don't have a brain!


Brains, Brains, I love em, I need um...
My tummy jumps for joy when I eat um.
Big ones, fat ones, short ones, tall ones,
They're so delectable, especially the small ones.
No time to cook em in a skillet.
My belly's rumblin', I got a need to fill it.
I don't fry em, the heat will only shrink em,
I'll just grab my self a straw and I drink em!!!(ohhhhhhh...)

You've been swell to go around
And bring me every single brain in town
But with all these brains, I can't help but think
That there isn't one left out there to drink.
Now Fess up boy, come on, Heck!
Is there someone that you're trying to protect?
Bring her down here to meet her end
And i promise I'll be your bestest friend.

BRAINS, BRAINS, I won't lie,
I'll eat her brains 'til she's zombified.
Sure she might think it's deranged
But she won't give it a thought
After I've eaten her brain.
BRAINS, BRAINS, It's okay.
It's not a matter if it isn't gray,
And if at first she thinks it's strange,
She won't think twice
If she don't have a brain!

BRAINS.....

Wesley Willis - Birdman Kicked my Ass

Birdman caught me on his property
He saw me trespassing his real estate
He reached into his pocket for a pistol
He came after me and pistol-whipped my behind

Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass

Birdman beat me to a pulp
He gave me a yell-down war hell ride
He told me that he was going to kill me if I don't get off is real estate
He gave five minutes to get in my Bronco and hit the rookie road

Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass

At 10:00 PM, I drove my Bronco back to Birdman's real estate
I jumped over his fence after dark
I picked up a brick and shattered Birdman's window pane
Birdman sighted me doing it and reached for his pistol
Suddenly, I jumped back in my Bronco and took off like O. J. Simpson

Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass
Birdman kicked my ass

Green Jelly/Jello - Three Little Pigs

Why don't you, sit right back,
and I, I may tell you, a tale.
A tale of three, little pigs,
and a BIG, BAD, WOLF.

Well the first little piggy, well he was kinda hip.
He spent most of his days, just a dreaming of the city.
And then one day, he bought a guitar.
He moved to Hollywood, to become a star.
But, living on the farm, he knew nothing of the city.
Built his house out of straw, what a pity.
And then one day, jammin on some chords,
Along came the wolf, knocking on his door.

[Chorus]
Little Pig, Little Pig, let me in.
NOT BY THE HAIR OF MY CHINNY, CHIN, CHIN!!
Little Pig, Little Pig, let me in.
NOT BY THE HAIR OF MY CHINNY, CHIN, CHIN!!
Well I'm huffing, I'm puffin, I'll blow your house in.
Huffing, puffin, blow your house in.
Huffing, puffin, blow your house in.
Huffing and a puffin and I'll blow your house in!!!

Well the second little piggy, well he was kinda stoked.
He spent most of his time just a ganja smoking.
Huffing and a puffin down on Venice Beach.
Getting paid money for religious speech.
He built his shelter from what garbage he picked.
Mostly made up of old cans and sticks.
Then one day he was cranking out Bob Marley,
And along came the Wolf on his big bad Harley.

[Chorus]

Well the third little piggy, the grade A student.
His daddy was a rock star, named Pig Nugent.
Earned his Masters Degree, from Harvard College.
Built his house from his architect knowledge.
A tri-level mansion, Hollywood Hills.
Daddy's rock stardom, paid for the bills.
And then one day came the old house smasher
The BIG BAD WOLF THE LITTLE PIGGY SLASHER.

[Chorus]

Well the big bad Wolf,
Well he huffed, and he puffed, all that he could.
And low and behold the little piggy's house stood.
"IT'S MADE OUT OF CONCRETE!", the little piggy shouted.
The wolf just frowned, as he pouted.
So they called nine-eleven, like any piggy would.
They sent out RAMBO, just as fast, as they could.

[Rambo]
"YO, WOLF-FACE, I'M YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE, YOUR ASS IS MINE!!!"

[machine gun fire]

Well the wolf fell dead as you can plainly see.
So that's to end the story, for you and me.
If you still give a listen, you just may,
Here a big wolf or little piggy say.

[Chorus]

"And the moral of the story is:
'A band with no talent can easily amuse idiots with a stupid puppet show.'"

The Avett Brothers - "Will You Return"

I open my door and here’s what occurs.
A pretty little gal with pretty little curls.
Leans to the side, leans on my mind.

I don’t want to live, but I sure don’t want to die.
I’m stuttering again and tellin' her goodbye.
Oh m-m-my, Goodb-b-bye

Will you come again? It’s hard to say.
I surely hope so.
Will you come again? It’s hard to say.
I surely hope so.

She walks up to me with something more to say.
Then hello and goodbye I hope that you’re okay.
Well I’m doing fine… I’m doing fine.

Will you come again? It’s hard to say.
I surely hope so.
Will you come again? It’s hard to say.
I surely hope so.

I wish you’d see yourself as beautiful as I see you
Why can’t you see yourself as beautiful as I see you?

I open my door and this is what I see.
The hope inside a girl just looking back at me.
Ohh my… Goodbye…

Don't Let Your Walls Down
Bob Dylan - Emotionally Yours


Come baby, find me, come baby, remind me of where I once begun.
Come baby, show me, show me you know me, tell me you're the one.
I could be learning, you could be yearning to see behind closed doors.
But I will always be emotionally yours.

Come baby, rock me, come baby, lock me into the shadows of your heart.
Come baby, teach me, come baby, reach me, let the music start.
I could be dreaming but I keep believing you're the one I'm livin' for.
And I will always be emotionally yours.

It's like my whole life never happened,
When I see you, it's as if I never had a thought.
I know this dream, it might be crazy,
But it's the only one I've got.

Come baby, shake me, come baby, take me, I would be satisfied.
Come baby, hold me, come baby, help me, my arms are open wide.
I could be unraveling wherever I'm traveling, even to foreign shores.
But I will always be emotionally yours.

He was not so shy

We spoke then suddenly I could read his mind

The devil told my grampa
The day that he would die
And my grampa told my grandma
And she thought it was a lie
Then the day came and my
Grampa he lay dead
Just like the devil said
A train cut off his arms and legs
And it's a story that my mother told to me
Some people say that its too hard to believe, but
You gotta believe that my mother never lies
She's never in her life and my grampa he did die, yeah

My father he's hard-workin' man
the devil's never had a hand
in anything he did
He's the hardest workin' man I've ever seen
But I guess his hardest work,
it never worked on me, 'cause
He thinks I'm lazy and he
thinks that I'm a shame because
I haven't got a job any
money or a name and
He's worried about me and what I'm gonna do
How I'm gonna live I hope the devil's worried too, yeah

My lover she's what keeps me alive
She's the only thing I like in this
World that I despise
She sings and her voice is soft and sweet
She whistles in the shower and
Somehow she loves me
My grandson asked me once, he said
"Grampa are you crazy?" and I said
"Just a touch" and I
Got out my guitar,
I showed him how to play and I
Taught him how to sing the song a little out of key, yeah

And the devil sang with me, and the devil sang with me
On my shoulder like a friend that never leaves
And the devil sang with me, and the devil sang with me
On my shoulder like a friend that never leaves

No cradle only grave
Every child a bomb

Make a child cry... cry child cry!
Make a child die... die child die!
Take control sieze the soul
Near is the hour gain power

Death house we will build
where children wither
Never give them names

Make a child cry... cry child cry!
Make a child die... die child die!
Take control seize the soul
Near is the hour gain power

Make a child cry!

Go find a child

Rape their guts repeatedly
suck the soul dry
every child must die
I delare war on children
hide child hide
it's fun when I find you
your hiding place I spy

Make a child cry!
Make a child die!

Go find a child
Cry child cry

Nothing ever (ever) happens in this town
Feelin' low down (down), not a lot to do around here
I thought that I would go right outta my mind
Until a friend told me the news

He said, "(Hey), you know that vacant lot
Right beside the gas station? Well, somebody bought it
And on the spot they're gonna build a shop
Where we can go buy bolts and screws"

Since then I've been walking on air (air)
I can barely brush my teeth or comb my hair
'Cause I'm so excited and I really don't care
I've been waiting since last June

For this day to finally arrive
I'm so happy (happy) now just to be alive
'Cause any minute now I'm gonna be inside
Well, I hope they open soon

I can't wait no, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When they gonna open up that door?
I'm goin' (yes I'm) goin', I'm a-goin' to the
Goin' to the (hard) ware I'm goin', really goin' to the
Goin' (hard) I'm goin' to the (hard) oh yes, I'm goin' to the
Hardware store

In my sleeping bag I camped out overnight
Right in front of the store, then as soon as it was light out
I pressed my nose right up against the glass
You know, I had to be first in line

Gonna get me a flashlight and a broom
Want a pair of pliers for every single room in my house
See those hacksaws? Very, very soon
One of them will be all mine

Guys with name tags walking down the aisles
Rows of garden hoses that go on for miles and miles
Brand new socket wrenches in a plethora of styles
All arranged alphabetically

And they're doing a promotional stunt
There's a great big purple sign out front
That says every 27th customer
Will get a ball pein hammer free

I can't wait no, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When are they gonna open up that door?
I'm goin' (yes I'm) goin', I'm a-goin' to the
Goin' to the (hard) ware I'm goin', really goin' to the
Goin' (hard) I'm goin' to the (hard) oh yes, I'm goin' to the

I'm goin' (yes I'm) goin', I'm a-goin' to the
Goin' to the (hard) ware I'm goin', really goin' to the
Goin' (hard) I'm goin' to the (hard) oh yes, I'm goin' to the
Hardware store

(breathe)
Would you look at all that stuff ...
They've got allen wrenches, gerbil feeders, toilet seats, electric heaters
Trash compactors, juice extractors, shower rods and water heaters
Walkie-talkies, copper wires, safety goggles, radial tires
BB pellets, rubber mallets, fans and dehumidifiers
Picture hangers, paper cutters, waffle irons, window shutters
Paint removers, window louvers, masking tape and plastic gutters
Kitchen faucets, folding tables, weather stripping, jumper cables
Hooks and tackle, grout and spackle, power foggers, spoons and ladles
Pesticides for fumigation, high-performance lubrication
Metal roofing, water proofing, multi-purpose insulation
Air compressors, brass connectors, wrecking chisels, smoke detectors
Tire gauges, hamster cages, thermostats and bug deflectors
Trailer hitch demagnetizers, automatic circumcisers
Tennis rackets, angle brackets, Duracells and Energizers
Soffit panels, circuit brakers, vacuum cleaners, coffee makers
Calculators, generators, matching salt and pepper shakers

I can't wait no, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When are they gonna open up that door?
I'm goin' (yes I'm) goin', I'm a-goin' to the

He had a steady job and watched what he spent.
He'd say I don't believe in payin' no goddamn rent.
I'll squirrel away every goddamn cent
And buy my own damn house in kalamazoo.

I knew a guy that mangled his hand,
And he went from pipe fittin' to a hot dog stand.
They say last year he cleared fifty grand
Selling dogs round kalamazoo.

She turned to the world with a bastard child.
Said, "i just can't handle him he's too damn wild".
But the years and the liquor have made him mild.
And he lays around in kalamazoo.

... and let the Earth be silent after ye.

We got off the plane in the cold, cold rain
Lost track of the hour, lost track of the day
We were very far away from anywhere we'd been before

We got on a bus and we went to the city
Got off at a stop because we liked the name
We were in for an adventure
And that's all we knew for sure

And we walked until we couldn't walk no more
Jet lag and sore feet led us to the door
Of an expensive noisy bed
Where we could rest our heavy heads

We slept away the rest of the day
And well into the night
And we woke up with a hunger for life
Well before the sun rised

We didn't have money to ride the underground
So we walked the miles and miles of this town
When night fell like a rock we realized
We were never gonna find a patch of open ground

And the rain was comin' down
And the trains were shuttin' down
We were worn out, wet and lost
There was no shelter to be found

We spent over a week of our budget
On a taxi and a bed
And we made plans at night to escape
This expensive wonderland

We would set out for the wild
We would see what was beyond
We would sleep above the soil
And we would travel by our thumbs

And written above my hostel bed
In black marker it said
"There's a light
And it never goes out"

We didn't have a clue what we were doin'
We didn't even know where we wanted to go
The next day we took the tube all the way
Out to the end of the line

It took us five hours to find a place to stand
We stuck out our thumbs, we raised our hands
It was rainin' hard again
But we were not surprised

No one wants to pick you up
When you're soakin' wet
It was hard not havin' second thoughts
About goin' on this trip

And we ate the rest of our hostel bread
Under a dark, damp underpass
We watched the cars go past
The sun was sinking fast

But salvation came at last
In a little blue hatchback
And he took us a few miles down the road

The day was almost over
It was hard not to give in
We had made it outta the city
We were thinkin' about givin' up and settin' up our tent

But a Jeep pulled over then
And he told us to get in
He said his name was Nick
Right away he felt just like a friend

And he took us to some land
Where some people live on buses
Invited us to stay the night
And we could not refuse

We got a bus of our own
And it had a soft, warm bed
We built a little fire
And we dried our soaking shoes

And we slept, yeah we slept
Just like little babies

The next day at Stonehenge
We couldn't afford to get in
We thought it would be free,
We were surprised to see the fence

This day would set the theme
Of this trip for you and me
We could pay to see the sights of Europe
Or we could choose to eat

And we pressed on to an old Roman city
And we made it before night
We broke down and bought some fries
Just so we could get dry

And curse the sky, curse the sky, curse the sky
It rains all the time

We found a spot to pitch our tent
It was our first night in it
The rain soaked in, the ground was cold
It sank into my bones

And we decided that it was way too cold
To keep goin' the way we had planned to go
And that night we agreed that we would turn around
We'd head for warmer ground, we'd start makin' our way south

Oh you can't get lost if you've got no place to go
You can't take a wrong turn if you're not on your way home
And we realized just how free we really were

Hittin' the club up VIP
I got a fake mustache and a fake ID.
I look like Wooly Willy
With a really wooly willy.
And I bypass the bouncer,
Pass by an ex and I flex and bounce her, wowser.
Look at all of Bo's hoes
Looking for a ride on Bo's hose.
And I spot a little Latino, booty so big call it Oprah's ego.
We go to it, through it, she says, "Dios mia mi amigo!"
Pull it out, stick it in your mouth, and I bust in the back of ya.
Swallow bitch, there's people starving in Africa!

Single every single day
Do it every single way
Make the single ladies say
Oooh Bo
And if I were gay,
Though I swear I'm straight,
I'd make the fellas say...

You're an ice cream sundae with a cherry on top,
But careful, cherry, 'cause I'm the King of Pop.
Pop pop pop goes my weasel,
Now ya looking like Jackson Pollock's easel.
My suggestion is:
You don't blow 'til you know what congestion is,
Swallow when you know what digestion is.
Follow Bo, the only question is:
Have you been splattered before
By the mad-hatter matador?
Cake-batter never more
It don't matter whether you're
Spanish, French, Swedish or Cambodian,
I'll slime you so hard you could be on Nickelodeon.

Single every single day
Do it every single way
Make the single ladies say
Oooh Bo
And if I were gay,
Though I swear I'm straight,
I'd make the fellas say
Oooh Bo
Oh Bo-o, ooh Bo, Bo
A-a-Oooh Bo, Oooh Bo, Oooh Bo

You think that you can handle me?
Girl, don't make me laugh.
I said my junk is bipolar
It'll split you in half (yea).
And if you're lucky,
I might just bring you home,
And I'll have you going down
Like you're growin' an extra chromosome.
And when you grab me,
Don't grab me by my buns
'Cause I got a bad case of the ru-ruunnnns.
I got the runs
I got the ru-u-u-uuuns

Single every single day
Do it every single way
Make the single ladies say
Oooh Bo
And if I were gay,
Though I swear I'm straight,
I'd make the fellas say
Oooh Bo

(Spoken)
I wanna break it down for ya'll
I came from the streets, with nothin'
Now I'm makin' hit records
For my people still livin' in the streets,
Still livin' in poverty, I wanna tell you
I'm doin' this for you.
My success is your success.
And I know you may be thinkin',
Hey, if you really believe that,
Why don't you use some of your money
To help rebuild the neighborhood
Instead of putting spinning rims on a gold jet ski?
And to that I say (uh, chorus is comin' up):

Single every single day
Do it every single way
Make the single ladies say
Oooh Bo
And if I were gay,
Though I swear I'm straight
I'd make the fellas say
Unh Unh!

You gotta fume like a tuna,
I'll smell ya later.
I met a fat chick
And fucked her in an elevator.
It was wrong on so many levels.
It was wrong on so many le-le-le-levels.
It was wrong on so many levels (unh).
It was wrong on, it was wrong on, it was wrong on

Single every single day
Do it every single way
Make the single ladies say
Oooh Bo
And if I were gay,
Though I swear I'm straight,
I'd make the fellas say
Oooh

Single every single
Do it every single
Pop that single like a Pringle jingle
Oooh Bo

This song's almost completed
All this little ditty needed
Instrument that's double reeded:
The oboe

(Yea)

Oh, Bo
Play that oboe



:D We were singing this last night, figured I'd share.

Are you ready to obey the cowgod?

We live in a country, we can't eat meat
Obey the cowgod
We live in a country, where there is no, there's no Burger Kings
Obey the cowgod
We live in a country, where there is no, there's no McDonalds
Obey the cowgod

Ah dopey, dopey, dopey, dopey
I'm a cow, and I'm gonna roam through your village
And I'm gonna eat all of your food
But you don't care, because I'm a, I'm a...sacred cow!
Obey the cowgod

We live in a country, where there is no, there's no Beefcake The Mighty
Obey the cowgod
We live in a country, where there is no, there's no beef-by products
Obey the cowgod

You, on your knees
You, get on your knees
Where's those two boneheads?
Get on your knees
Hands behind your heads
And on your knees
You, on your knees
You, get on your knees
I said, on your knees
Get on your knees and pray to the cowgod

Eat my burger, for it is my flesh
And drink my milk, for it is my blood
Obey the cowgod

This song has been stuck in my head for a week straight, and I'm okay with that.

Lord, let the shadows cast over me
way way down where the vultures sleep
they pick me to pieces, pick me to bone
yet I still don't feel like I'm dead at all
it's a long drop down until you hit rock bottom
until you swim in the sea with the mean and the rotten
I swam in the swamplands, slept on the shore
and mauled through the mud banks sly as a slumlord
Down in the dirt where the worms all crawl
get burned by the sun and get burned by the salt
get stomped by the big boot of the man
and then kicked to the curb by the best of friends
it's a bittersweet bare knuckle brawl to the head
and you never really know how it's ever going to end
it's a down low shame how the upside's far
and it only does justice to the tough man's heart, and they say...
To come from nothing is to come from something great
because you learn who you can trust and what to appreciate
and by the time you're on your own you're about as wise as you are old
as wise as the owl with his eyes on the gold
Sit on the sidelines and clap like a fan
pretend to process all that you can
follow the footsteps set by the saints
then blow up the balls where they congregate
it's a fire fueled frenzy in the minds of the meek
and you'd only be a fool to lie through your teeth
it's a one way ticket on a life long freight
so once you're aboard you can never escape, they say...
To come from nothing is to come from something great
because you learn who you can trust and what to appreciate
and by the time you're on your own you're about as wise as you are old
as wise as the owl with his eyes on the gold

... and let the Earth be silent after ye.


I said come on all you honeys, I am beggin to begin,
I say I gotta get the get the grand, gotta get within,
gotta get more cream than wis-con-sin,
honeymoon suite at the sher-i-dan,
bath tub full of ex-pen-sive gin,
lots of candles and vi-o-lins,
bi-ki-nis made of di-a-monds,
honeys beggin’ me to break their hy-o-mens.

Been in a hip hop mood lately...

[Immortal Technique]
The ghetto is like a prison, with invisible bars
No matter where you ride, it always follows you where you are
And it’s hard out there, for a pimp to get outta
But it’s harder for the hooker that he beat the shit outta
I got niggas underground in the Confederate States
Ironically runnin’ from slavery that prison creates
So I never hate on the south, I respect they vision
I just hate on niggas that promote Samboism
And white execs that love to see us in that position
They reflect the stereotypes of America’s vision
They want us dancing, cooning and hollering
Only respect us for playing sports and modeling
More than racism, it’s stay in your place-ism
More people are trapped in practical blackface-ism
So fuck a Civil War between the North and the South
It’s between field niggas and slaves that are stuck in the house

[Chorus: Chuck D]
Civil war for the soul of a nation
This is a struggle to save civilization
Demonstrations overthrowing the occupation
The annihilation of mental colonization

Civil war for the soul of a nation
We fight for the future of our civilization
Destroy the corrupt government organizations
Trying to survive cultural assassination

[Killer Mike]
Crip niggas, Blood nigga, ese’s, Asians
Why the fuck we warring with each other’s population?
The devil wanna dead all our population
People in Folk nation, why the separation?
Why we got Jamaicans hatin’ on Haitians
When the British and French raped both nations?
Mexicans and Blacks kill each other, straight hating
While the government profits from prison population
If you on the bottom, be you Anglo or Asian
You gotta recognize the realness of what I’m sayin’
You gotta recognize another G ain’t the enemy
When the police ride to kill us frequently
We gotta make the youth see, where the truth be
If you a G, then grow and develop GD
50 years of gangs and our people still poor
If we really run the streets, we should really end war

[Chorus: Chuck D]
Civil war for the soul of a nation
This is a struggle to save civilization
Demonstrations overthrowing the occupation
The annihilation of mental colonization

Civil war for the soul of a nation
We fight for the future of our civilization
Destroy the corrupt government organizations
Trying to survive cultural assassination

[Brother Ali]
Listen, our hearts were torn apart just like y’all was
Watching towers full of souls fall to sawdust
Everytime we called your office you ignored us
Now you holding hearings on us all inside a Congress
Microscopes on us, ask if we’re Jihadists
My answer was in line with all of the Founding Fathers
I think Patrick said it best; Give me liberty or death
I shall never accept anything less
You claim innocence, you play victimless
But you gave the kiss of death in the name of self defense
Slavery and theft have brought the nations to the end
Of pacifying your citizenry with excess
We believe in freedom, justice, security
But they’re only pure when they’re applied universally
So certainly if I rage against the machine
My aim was only to clean the germs out of the circuitry
Heard you need putting fear inside your heart
Make you burn Qu’rans and tell me not to build a mosque
Me, my wife and babies we ain’t never made jihad
We just want to touch our heads to the floor and talk to God
Ask him to remove every blemish from my heart
The greatest threat of harm doesn’t come from any bomb
The moment you refuse the human rights of just a few
What happens when that few includes you?
Civil war
