Post lyrics to songs you're currently digging.

One song/post.

Please no double posts unless it's been many many days.

I'll start us off with...

Colony by In Flames

In your world, the day is no threat
In my world, there is an absence of light
"Genetic superior cell" controlled
by the fathomless and unbearable

A radical new Form of plastic and rage
biologically optimized
but with a strangling pulse

In your world, you find me worthy
In my world, I "parashoot" my life
A virtual drugstore populated
by the fathomless and unbearable

Machine, meat and blood
in an intimate relationship
The new - superior -
more effective than all the preceding

When we can no longer cry
and reality is torn
Then it's easy to forget
that the responsibility lies on us all

In your world, the night is no threat
In my world, the darkness
transforms to a vision of hell
populated by fathomless and unbearable

I think this is a great thread Topic.

There is one paticular individual in my life who has greatly wronged me.
I'm not sure how many here have held a true grudge towards someone, but it's very draining and exhasting. And at the end of the day, they still have you beat. I held a a grudge for a couple years and finally let it go as my New Years resolution one year ago.

The Grudge by Tool

Wear your grudge
Like a crown of negativity
Calculate what we will
Or will not tolerate
Desperate to control all
And everything
Unable to forgive
You scarlet lettermen
Clutch it like a cornerstone
Otherwise it all comes down
Justified denials and crippled
To the lonesome end
Clutch it like a cornerstone
Otherwise it all comes down
Terrified of being wrong
Ultimatum prison cell

Saturn ascends
Choose one or ten
Hang on or be humbled again

Clutch it like a cornerstone,
Otherwise it all comes down
Justified denials and crippled
To the lonesome end
Saturn ascends,
Comes round again
Saturn ascends,
The one, the ten
Ignorant to the damage done

Wear your grudge like
A crown of negativity
Calculate what you will
Or will not tolerate
Desperate to control all
And everything
Unable to forgive
You scarlet lettermen

Wear your grudge
Like a crown
Desperate to control
Unable to forgive
And sinking deeper

Defining
Confining
Sinking deeper
Controlling
Defining
And we're sinking deeper

Saturn comes back around
To show you everything
Let's choose what you will
You will not see and
Then drags you down
Like a stone or
Lifts you up again
Spits you out like
A child, light and innocent

Saturn comes back around
Lifts you up like a child
Or drags you down like a stone
To consume you till you
Choose to let this go
Choose to let this go

Give away the stone
Let the oceans take and
Transmutate this
Cold and fated anchor
Give away the stone
Let the waters kiss and
Transmutate these
Leaden grudges into gold

Let go

YOU ARE A PIRATE! by LazyTown


Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free, you are a pirate!

Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright to be
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free
You are a pirate!

You are a pirate.

Yeah!

We got us a map (A MAP!)
to lead us to a hidden box
that's all locked up with locks (WITH LOCKS!)
and buried deep away
We'll dig up the box (THE BOX!)
We know it's full of precious booty
Burst open the locks

And then we say hooray!

Yarr har fiddle dee dee
If you love to sail the sea
You are a pirate

Weigh anchor!

Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright to be
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free
You are a pirate!
Arr yarr ahoy and avast
Dig a deep (?) and you're digging too fast

Hang the black flag at the end of the mast!

You are a pirate!

(laughs)

Yay!

We're sailing away (SET SAIL!)
Adventure waits on every shore
We set sail and explore (YARR HAR!)
and run and jump all day (YEAH!)
We float in our boat (THE BOAT!)
until it's time to drop the anchor
Then hang up our coats (AYE AYE!)
Until we sail again!

Yarr har fiddle dee dee
If you love to sail the sea
You are a pirate

(record scratch)

Land ho!

Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright to be
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free
You are a pirate!

Yarr har! Wind at your back lads wherever you go!

Blue sky above and blue ocean below
You are a pirate!

(laughs)
You are a pirate!

War of 1812 - 3 Dead Trolls in a Baggie
(This song was recorded in Seattle at Sketchfest 2003 in front of at least 50 real Americans.)
http://www.deadtroll.com/index2.html (click 'audio' - 'war of 1812' - stupid web page)

Oh, come back, proud Canadians
To before you had TV,
No hockey night in Canada,
There was no CBC (Oh, my God!).
In 1812, Madison was mad,
He was the president, you know
Well, he thought he’d tell the British where they ought to go
He thought he’d invade Canada,
He thought that he was tough
Instead we went to Washington....
And burned down all his stuff!

And the White House burned, burned, burned,
And we’re the one’s that did it!
It burned, burned, burned,
While the president ran and cried.
It burned, burned, burned,
And things were very historical.
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
Waa waa waah!
In the War of 1812!

Now some hillbillies from Kentucky,
Dressed in green and red,
Left home to fight in Canada,
But they returned home dead
It’s the only war the Yankees lost, except for Vietnam
And also the Alamo... and the Bay of... ham.
The loser was America,
The winner was ourselves,
So join right in and gloat about the War of 1812

And the White House burned, burned, burned,
And we’re the one’s that did it!
It burned, burned, burned,
While the president ran and cried.
It burned, burned, burned,
And things were very historical.
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
Waa waa waah!
In the War of 1812!

In 1812, we were just sittin’ around,
Mindin’ our own business, puttin’ crops into the ground.
We heard the soldiers coming and we didn’t like that sound.
So we took a boat to Washington and burned it to the ground.

Oh... we... fired our guns, but the Yankees kept-a coming,
There wasn’t quite as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and the Yankees started running,
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico, oh, oh....
They ran through the snow and they ran through the forest,
They ran through the bushes where the beavers wouldn’t go.
They ran so fast, they forgot to take their culture,
Back to America, and Gulf and Texaco

So, if you go to Washington, its buildings clean and nice,
Bring a pack of matches, and we’ll burn the White House twice!

And the White House burned, burned, burned,
But the Americans won’t admit it
It burned, burned, burned,
It burned and burned and burned
It burned, burned, burned,
Now, I bet that made them mad
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
Waa waa waah!

Suite Madam Blue
by STYX

(This song is tough as nails)


Time after time I sit and I wait for your call
I know I'm a fool but why can I say
Whatever the price I'll pay for you, Madame Blue
Once long ago, a word from your lips and the world turned around
But somehow you've changed, you're so far away
I long for the past and dream of the days with you, Madame Blue

Suite Madame Blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Suite Madame Blue, the future is all but past
Dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
You conquered the world and more ..............heaven's door

America....America...America..America..
America....America...America..America..
America....America...America..America..

Red white and blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Red, white, and blue, the future is all but past
So lift up your heart, make a new start
And lead us away from here
rock and roll,
kroz

I'm a Cow - The Wiggles

I eat grass and I moo all day
I'm a cow (moo) I'm a cow (moo)
I eat green grass and I give white milk
I'm a cow (moo) I'm a cow (moo)

Moo (moo) Moo (moo)
MOO (moo) MOO! (moo)

(various mooing sounds)

I first heard that song in Year 9 and I laughed so hard.

Manex, my Wiggles fanaticism did not come from growing up with the Disney Channel. One of my friends (my age) has ALL their albums, including a single that they released to the mainstream about 4 years ago. We have been to about 5 of their concerts and loved every minute of it - they may be for kids but they give off a fantastic vibe. We've met them and chatted with them and they seemed a little bemused that these 15 year olds were religiously coming to see their concerts but they didn't mind. I haven't been a concert of theirs for about 3 or 4 years now but I will always remember them. They are FAB.

Took me a little while to get into this song, but it's been stuck in my head for forever since I finally started to really listen to it. I like the message.

Dig by Incubus

We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify. Look me in the eye
And ask for forgiveness
We'll make a pact to never speak that word again.
Yes, you are my friend.
We all have something that digs at us,
at least we dig each other.

So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you'll count on the me from yesterday.
If I turn into another
dig me up from under what is covering
the better part of me.
Sing this song
remind me that we'll always have each other
when everything else is gone.

We all have a sickness
that cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try.
We all have someone that digs at us,
at least we dig each other.

So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you'll act as a clever medicine.
If I turn into another
dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
when everything else is gone.
Oh, each other when everything else is gone
No

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
If I turn into another
dig me up from under what is covering
the better part of me.
Sing this song
remind me that we'll always have each other
when everything else is gone.
Oh, each other when everything else is gone
Oh, each other when everything else is gone

Kind of hard to explain why this one is my favorite.. it's a lil' old, but always gets me through the tough times.


Scars - Papa Roach

I tear myself open
I sew myself shut
My weakness is
that I care too much
and the scars remind me
that the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

Drunk and I'm feelin down
and I just wanna be alone
I'm pissed cause you came around
why don't you just go home
cause you channel all your pain
And I can't help you fix yourself
You're making me insane
All I can say is
I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That you're drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassion is in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
And I just wanna be alone
You shouldn't ever come around
Why don't you just go home?
Cause you're drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And I left my heart open
But you didn't understand
(But you didn't understand)
Now fix yourself


I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can't help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
My weakness is that I care too much
And our scars remind us that the past is real
I tear my heart open just to feel

Wenn getanzt wird will ich führen
Auch wenn ihr euch alleine dreht
Lasst euch ein wenig kontrollieren
Ich zeige euch wie's richtig geht
Wir bilden einen lieben Reigen
Die Freiheit spielt auf allen Geigen
Musik kommt aus dem Weißen Haus
Und vor Paris steht Mickey Mouse

We're all living in Amerika
Amerika ist wunderbar
We're all living in Amerika
Amerika
Amerika

Ich kenne Schritte die sehr nützen
Und werde euch vor Fehltritt schützen
Und wer nicht tanzen will am Schluss
Weiss noch nicht dass er tanzen muss
Wir bilden einen lieben Reigen
Ich werde euch die Richtung zeigen
Nach Afrika kommt Santa Claus
Und vor Paris steht Mickey Mouse

We're all living in Amerika

We're all living in Amerika

We're all living in Amerika

A country song my brother brought my my attention...


Fast Car by Tracy Chapman


You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we can make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
Me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just across the border and into the city
You and I could both get jobs
Finally see what it means to be living

See my old man's got a problem
Lives with a bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
Body's too young for looking like his
Mama went off and left him
Wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
I quit school that's what I did
What I did, what I did

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough that we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

So remember when we're driving, driving in your car
The speed so fast felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
We go cruising, entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market in the checkout line
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs

So remember when we're driving, driving in your car
The speed so fast felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
I got a job pays all our bills
Stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought we'd together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
Take your fast car and keep on driving

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

So remember when we're driving, driving in your car
The speed so fast felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

Mad World - Gary Jules (from the marvelous movie Donnie Darko - the song was originally by Tears for Fears, I believe)

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrows
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very, very
Mad World, Mad World

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, happy birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello, teacher, tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very, very
Mad World, mad world

Enlargen your world
Mad world
Very Sleepy People
