Wake up

Grab a brush and put a little (makeup)

Grab a brush and put a little

Hide the scars to fade away the (shakeup)

Hide the scars to fade away the

Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?

Here you go create another fable

You wanted to

Grab a brush and put a little makeup

You wanted to

Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup

You wanted to

Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?

You wanted to

I don’t think you trust

In, my, self righteous suicide

I, cry, when angels deserve to die, die

Wake up

Grab a brush and put a little (makeup)

Grab a brush and put a little

Hide the scars to fade away the (shakeup)

Hide the scars to fade away the

Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?

Here you go create another fable

You wanted to

Grab a brush and put a little makeup

You wanted to

Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup

You wanted to

Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?

You wanted to

I don’t think you trust

In, my, self righteous suicide

I, cry, when angels deserve to die

In, my, self righteous suicide

I, cry, when angels deserve to die

Father, father, father, father

Father into your hands, I commend my spirit

Father into your hands

Why have you forsaken me

In your eyes forsaken me

In your thoughts forsaken me

In your heart forsaken, me oh

Trust in my self righteous suicide

I, cry, when angels deserve to die

In my self righteous suicide

I, cry, when angels deserve to die

- Chop Suey by System of a Down

Guest Angry Baboon

In the sleepy west of the woody east

Is a valley full, full o' pioneer

We're not just kids, to say the least

We got ideas to us that's dear

Like capitalist, like communist

Like lots of things you've heard about

And redneckers they get us pissed

And stupid stuff it makes us shout

Oh dance with me, oh don't be shy

Oh kiss me cunt and kiss me cock

Oh kiss the world, oh kiss the sky

Oh kiss my ass, oh let it rock

Of the april birds and the may bee

Oh baby

University

Of Massachusetts, please

And here's the last five

It's educational

It's educational

It's educational

It's educational

It's educational

(Pixies- "U-Mass")

You really have to have experienced college life to get the brilliant humour in this. "We're not just kids, to say the least, We got ideas to us that's dear, Like capitalist, like communist, Like lots of things you've heard about, And redneckers they get us pissed, And stupid stuff it makes us shout" there's a fair few EWB members (Some more than others, some directly, some metaphorically) that this sums up so nicely.

I was lookin' through my window

I was lookin' through my eyes

And there's a big black car coming

Get off the street outside - come in

Go into a pipe-dream no-one listens anyway

When I say I'm so sad about, not so glad about

I'm so mad - I can't sleep tonight

I was going through a nightmare

I was layin' on the line

And there's a big black train coming

D'you think it would be a shame running

Go into a bathroom

No-one looking anyway

When I say I'm so sad about, not so glad about

I'm so mad - I can't sleep tonight

I was looking through my window

I was looking through my eyes

And there's a big black cloud coming

Get off the street outside - come in

Go into a pipe-dream no-one listens anyway

When I say I'm so sad about, not so glad about

I'm so mad I can't sleep tonight

(The La's- "I can't sleep")

Cathartic melancholy done in an up-beat way. Lee Mavers is a fucking genius.

I am the son

and the heir

of a shyness that is criminally vulgar

I am the son and heir

of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth

how can you say

I go about things the wrong way

I am human and I need to be loved

just like everybody else does

I am the son

and the heir

of a shyness that is criminally vulgar

I am the son and the heir

of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth

how can you say

I go about things the wrong way

I am human and I need to be loved

just like everybody else does

There's a club if you'd like to go

you could meet somebody who really loves you

so you go, and you stand on your own

and you leave on your own

and you go home, and you cry

and you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen "now"

well, when exactly do you mean?

see I've already waited too long

and all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth

how can you say

I go about things the wrong way

I am human and I need to be loved

just like everybody else does

(The Smiths- "How soon is now?")

I don't think any bands can produce angst-ridden music anymore without it sounding cheesy and false. Morrisey was an expert at it.

Guest bruins72

By a lonely prison wall,

I heard a young girl calling

"Michael they have taken you away.

For you stole Trevelyn's corn,

So the young might see the morn,

Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay."

(chorus)

Low lie, the Fields of Athenry

Where once we watched the small free birds fly.

Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing,

It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

By a lonely prison wall,

I heard a young man calling

"Nothing matters, Mary when you're free.

Against the famine and the Crown

I rebelled, they cut me down!

Now you must raise our child with dignity."

Low lie, the Fields of Athenry

Where once we watched the small free birds fly.

Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing,

It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

By a lonely harbor wall,

She watched the last star falling,

As that prison ship sailed out against the sky.

Sure, she'll wait and hope and pray

For her love in Botany Bay,

It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

Low lie, the Fields of Athenry

Where once we watched the small free birds fly.

Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing,

It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

Dropkick Murphys - Fields of Athenry

Murphy, Murphy darling dear I long for you now night and day.

Your pain was my pleasure your sorrow my joy

I fear now I've lost you to health and good cheer.

Darcy when I met you i was 5 years too young,

a boy beyond his age or so I'd tell someone.

Anyone who'd listen and a few who couldn't care

still I welcomed you with open arms my love I did share.

Darcy, Darcy darlin dear you left dying,

crying there in whiskey, Gin and pints of beer

I fell for you my darling dear.

You shut me off then you showed me the door.

But you always came crawlin back beggin me for more.

I showed you kindness a stool and a tab.

Then you poured me my pain in a dirty glass.

Yeah you left him bloody battered penniless and poor.

You know I often stopped to wonder how he made through my door.

With my brothers new non-duplicate registry I.D.

Well you bit off more than you could chew the first day you met me.

Darcy Darcy darlin dear you left me dying

crying there in whiskey Gin and pints of beer

I fell for you my darling dear.

You weren't the first to court me mister you won't be the last.

Oh I'm sure I wasn't honey I know all about your past.

Well listen to the big shot with his pager on call

you spent most of those nights in my bathroom stall.

Yeah, you got him high but you left him low.

Mind your own business boy how was I to know

that he was just a fiend and a no good cheat.

Well thats all in the past bitch cause now I got it beat.

There's a light overhead, overhead

In the sky overhead, overhead

and i'm with you now in body and music and mind

and we're silent and still

everything's so out of control tonight

in a plane that's flying fast

at a speed that makes me cry

have you left me now

to trouble that won't let me lie

i'm awake all the time

you know where i stand

holding my plastic gun

so turn and run

you cold killers of innocence

against us there's no defense

your flash and your wickedness

you can't break our love

tie my hands behind my back

put a gag on top of my mouth

but i won't give you up

till silverware's covered in dust

and my shoes fall apart

and the tumbleweed runs

over my desert heart

so turn and run

you cold killers of innocence

against us there's no defense

your flash and your wickedness

will surely bring you down again

somehow we must stay afloat

won't give into the undertow

something's you will never know

you can't break our love

you can pull us down

but you can't break our love

"Turn & Run" by Neil Finn

Damien Rice - Cannonball

Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth

Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt

Still a little hard to say what's going on

Still a little bit of your ghost your witness

Still a little bit of your face I haven't kissed

You step a little closer each day

That I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly

Love taught me to lie

Life taught me to die

So it's not hard to fall

When you float like a cannonball

Still a little bit of your song in my ear

Still a little bit of your words I long to hear

You step a little closer to me

So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly

Love taught me to lie

Life taught me to die

So it's not hard to fall

When you float like a cannon

Stones taught me to fly

Love taught me to cry

So come on courage

Teach me to be shy

'Cause it's not hard to fall

And I don't want to scare her

It's not hard to fall

And I don't wanna lose

It's not hard to grow

When you know that you just don't know

Lyrically one my favourite songs and one of a few that can make me cry, particularly going through a break up in the past.

I don't wanna understand this horror

there's a weight in your eyes i can't admit

everybody ends up here in bottles

but the name tags are the last thing you wanted

as the world explodes you fall out of it

and you can't let go because this

will not go away.....

there's a house built out in space

and can't see the thief that lives inside of your head

but i can be some courage at the side of your bed

and i don't know what's happening and i can't pretend

but i can be all, be all

someone help us understand who ordered

this disgusting arrangement of time and the end

i don't wanna hear who walked on water

cause the hallways are empty, clocks tick

as the world implodes we fall in to it

and we cant go home because this

will not go away.....

there's a house built out in space

and i cant see the thief that lives inside your head

but i can be some courage at the side of your bed

and i don't know what's happening and i can't pretend

it's a long, long get away, it's a long, long get away

make it home again, make it home again

it's a long, long get away, it's a long, long get away

and i cant see the thief that lives inside your head

but i can be some courage at the side of your bed

and i don't know what's happening and i can't pretend

but i can be all, be all i'm here

but i can be all, be all i'm here

it's a long, long get away

Our Lady Peace - Thief

I walked around my good intentions

And found that there were none

I blame my father for the wasted years

We hardly talked

I never thought I would forget this hate

the a phone call made me realize

I'm wrong

If I don't make it known that

I've loved you all along

Just like sunny days that

We ignore because

We're all dumb and jaded

And I hope God I figure out

What's wrong

I walked around my room

Not thinking

Just sinking in this box

I blame myself for being too much

Like somebody else

I never thought I would just

Bend this way

Our Lady Peace - 4 A.M.

He said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down

I'm gonna put it six feet underground

He said I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall

Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls

Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire

Stand here until I fill all your heart's desires

Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn

Do back the things it did to you in return

Ah, ah, ah Ah, ah, ah

He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war

If you can tell me something worth fighting for

Oh and I'm gonna buy this place, that's what I said

Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

HONEY, all the movements you're starting to make

See me crumble and fall on my face

And I know the mistakes that I made

See it all disappear without a trace

And they call as they beckon you on

They said start as you mean to go on

Start as you mean to go on

He said I'm gonna buy this place and see it go

Stand here beside my baby watch the orange glow

Some'll laugh and some just sit and cry

You just sit down there and you wonder why

So I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war

If you can tell me something worth fighting for

And I'm gonna buy this place, that's what I said

Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

Oh to the head

HONEY all the movements you're starting to make

See me crumble and fall on my face

And I know the mistakes that I made

See it all disappear without a trace

And they call as they beckon you on

They say start as you mean to go on

As you mean to go on, as you mean to go on

So meet me by the bridge, meet me by the lane

When am I gonna see that pretty face again

Meet me on the road, meet me where I said

Blame it all upon

A rush of blood to the head

Coldplay - Rush of Blood to the Head

This party is old and uninviting

Participants all in black and white

You enter in full blown technicolor

Nothing is the same after tonight

If the world would fall apart

In a fiction worthy wind

I wouldn't change a thing now that you're here

Yeah, love is a verb here in my room

You enter and close the door behind you

Now show me the world seen from the stars

If only the lights would dim a little

I'm weary of eyes upon my scars

If the world would fall apart

In a fiction worthy wind

I wouldn't change a thing now that you're here

Yeah, love is a verb here in my room

Pink tractor beam into your incision

Head spining as free as dervishs' whirl

I came here expecting next to nothing

So thank you for being that kind of girl

Incubus - Here In My Room

What can I say, I'm a sucker for the introspective songs.

The Smashing Pumpkins - Today

Today is the greatest

Day I've ever known

Can't live for tomorrow,

Tomorrow's much too long

I'll burn my eyes out

Before I get out

I wanted more

Than life could ever grant me

Bored by the chore

Of saving face

Today is the greatest

Day I've ever known

Can't wait for tomorrow

I might not have that long

I'll tear my heart out

Before I get out

Pink ribbon scars

That never forget

I tried so hard

To cleanse these regrets

My angel wings

Were bruised and restrained

My belly stings

Today is

Today is

Today is

The greatest day

I want to turn you on

I want to turn you on

I want to turn you on

I want to turn you

Today is the greatest

Today is the greatest day

Today is the greatest day

That I have ever really known

Stone Temple Pilots - Creep

Forward yesterday

Makes me wanna stay

What they said was real

Makes me wanna steal

Livin' under house

Guess I'm livin', I'm a mouse

All's I gots is time

Got no meaning, just a rhyme

Take time with a wounded hand

'Cause it likes to heal

Take time with a wounded hand

'Cause I like to steal

Take time with a wounded hand

'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

Well, I'm half the man I used to be

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

Well, I'm half the man I used to me

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

Well, I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Feelin' uninspired

Think I'll start a fire

Everybody run

Bobby's got a gun

Think you're kinda neat

Then she tells me I'm a creep

Friends don't mean a thing

Guess I'll leave it up to me

Take time with a wounded hand

'Cause it likes to heal

Take time with a wounded hand

Guess I like to steal

Take time with a wounded hand

'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

I'm half the man I used to be

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

I'm half the man I used to be

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Take time with a wounded hand

'Cause it likes to heal

Take time with a wounded hand

Guess I like to steal

Take time with a wounded hand

'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I'm half the man I used to me

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

I'm half the man I used to be

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

I'm half the man I used to be

This I feel as the dawn

It fades to gray

I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be,

Half the man I used to be

Audioslave - Like a Stone

On a cobweb

Afternoon

In a room full of emptiness

By a freeway

I confess i was lost in the pages

Of a book

Full of death

Reading how we'll die alone

And if we're good we'll lay to rest

Anywhere we want to go

In your house

I long to be

Room by room

Patiently

I'll wait for you there

Like a stone

I'll wait for you there

Alone

And on my death bed

I will pray

To the gods and the angels

Like a pagan

To anyone who will take me to heaven

To a place

I recall

I was there so long ago

The sky was bruised

The wine was bled

And there you led me on

In your house

I long to be

Room by room

Patiently

I'll wait for you there

Like a stone

I'll wait for you there

Alone

Alone

And on i read

Till the day was gone

And i sat in regret

For all the things i've done

For all that i've blessed

And all that i've wronged

In dreams until my death

I will wander on

In your house

I long to be

Room by room

Patiently

I'll wait for you there

Like a stone

I'll wait for you there

Alone

Alone

Perfection

So close no matter how far

Couldn't be much more from the heart

Forever trusting who we are

And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way

Life is ours, we live it our way

All these words I don't just say

And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you

Every day for us something new

Open mind for a different view

And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do

Never cared for what they know

But I know

So close no matter how far

Couldn't be much more from the heart

Forever trusting who we are

And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do

Never cared for what they know

But I know

Never opened myself this way

Life is ours, we live it our way

All these words I don't just say

Trust I seek and I find in you

Every day for us something new

Open mind for a different view

And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say

Never cared for games they play

Never cared for what they do

Never cared for what they know

And I know

So close no matter how far

Couldn't be much more from the heart

Forever trusting who we are

No nothing else matters

Pearl Jam "Black"

Hey...oooh...

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay

Were laid spread out before me as her body once did

All five horizons revolved around her soul

As the earth to the sun

Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything

Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore

And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds

Of what was everything?

Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside

I'm surrounded by some kids at play

I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear

Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head

I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning

How quick the sun can, drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass

Of what was everything?

All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black

Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll ever be...yeah...

Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star

In somebody else's sky, but why

Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine

I don't know what it is, but it's the only song that triggers an emotional response out of me.

Bright Eyes - Arienette

The fragile keep secrets

Gathered in pockets

And they will sell them for nothing

A cheap watch or locket

That kind of gold washes off

And the sad act like lepers

They stick to the shadows

They long to ring bells of warning

To tell of their coming

So that the pure can shut their doors

The angry are animals Senseless and savage

They act without order

In logical lapses

They stain their mouths with blood

So take my hand

This barren land is alive tonight

Oh, the corn has grown stalks

That form a wall to hide

But the wind carries sounds

That I can’t see from beyond that line

Then the stalks begin to sway

Oh, stay with me, Arienette

Until the wolves are away

The wicked are vultures

And they bake in the canyons

They circle in sunlight

And wait for their victims

To collapse and call to them

The desperate are water

They'll run down forever

And soak into silence

And end up together

In a dark and distant, dark and distant place

So don’t leave me here with only mirrors watching me

This house, it holds nothing but the memories

And the moon, it leaves silver but never sleep

And then the silver turns to gray

Oh stay with me, Arienette

Until the wolves are away

Maybe not my favorite lyrics, but the only ones I could think of...

It's like the more money we come across

The more problems we see

Dialated Peoples feat. Kanye West - This Way

[Kanye West + (Choir)]

Now turn it up, (a little louder) turn it up (a little louder)

Turn it uuuuup, (a little louder) turn it up (little louder)

Now turn it up (can't live my, I, I can't live my)

(I can't live my, I, I can't live)

Now turn it up, turn it up

[Evidence]

I, I can't live my, can't live my

Yeah, yo I can't live my I, I can't live my

Life this way, continually really get high

Instead of runnin 'round, lock one bird down

It's a new day gotta do it big just to get right

Show no respect can't live that way

You hold my check can't live that way

Without my chick on deck, can't live that way

They say what they like, but I've been that way

Our moves calculated through the limbs, almost here

Succes will be the best revenge

Man, from Clint East' to Kanye West (whut up, whut up!)

Some can't chill but everyday it says (everyday!)

[Chorus - Male Choir + (Female Choir)]

This time I made up my mind

This time I'm back on my grind

I know there's things in my life

That I'ma let go startin tonight

(I can't live my, I, I can't live my)

(I can't live my, I, I can't live my)

I can't live my, I, I can't live my

I can't live my this way (can't live my, I, I can't live my)

This way (I can't live my, I, I can't live my)

This way, I can't live my, I, I can't live my

I can't live my life this way

[Kanye West]

Kanye to the

My favorite girl wanna leave just because I got a girlfriend

My freak girl told me "now, she a christian"

My white girl wanna move back to Michigan

I'm pullin girls off the bench like a "sixth-man"

I'm in the club doin the same ol' two step

While Omega's doing the same ol' "Q step"

I have my money on my mind I was thinkin green

She a pledge A.K.A. "she was pink and green"

I wanna a good girl she want a gentleman

We sayin' the same thing like a synonym

I wasn't really spittin game I was scrimmagin'

My pimpinship's so hard it needs censorship

I'ma chicagoan till Chicago ends

Till we blow like Chicago wind

I don't know what's better, gettin laid or gettin paid

I just know when I'm gettin one, the other's gettin away

This way

[Chorus]

[Rakaa Iriscience]

Go 'head, flip a coin so the game don't stop

Believe I know the drama keep name apart

I learnt before the hot flame came the spark

It's like 'fore the pop fame came the park

But this industry'll play with yo' life man

They playin with yo' rich, food, water and lights man (yeah)

That's why Rakaa brings that old tidy T jam

The veteran, then I'm off to Amsterdam

To rest up for strenght to deal with this weight

To deal with these deals to deal with this hate

I dedicate this Jam Master Jay

Run-DMC showed me how to walk, this way

[Chorus]

[Kanye West & Rakaa speak in Outro]

QUOTE

Damien Rice - Cannonball

Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth

Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt

Still a little hard to say what's going on

Still a little bit of your ghost your witness

Still a little bit of your face I haven't kissed

You step a little closer each day

That I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly

Love taught me to lie

Life taught me to die

So it's not hard to fall

When you float like a cannonball

Still a little bit of your song in my ear

Still a little bit of your words I long to hear

You step a little closer to me

So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly

Love taught me to lie

Life taught me to die

So it's not hard to fall

When you float like a cannon

Stones taught me to fly

Love taught me to cry

So come on courage

Teach me to be shy

'Cause it's not hard to fall

And I don't want to scare her

It's not hard to fall

And I don't wanna lose

It's not hard to grow

When you know that you just don't know

Lyrically one my favourite songs and one of a few that can make me cry, particularly going through a break up in the past.

I love Damien Rice. "Lonelily" is a great song, as is "Volcano".

"New Noise"

Can I scream? Yeah!

We lack the motion to move to the new beat

We lack the motion to move to the new beat

It's here for us to admire if we can afford the beauty of it

Can afford the luxury of turning our heads

Adjust that thousand dollars smile and behold the creation of man

Great words won't cover ugly actions - good frames won't save bad paintings

We lack the motion to move to the new beat. Yeah!

We lack... motion

When the day is over - Hey! - the doors are locked on us

Money buys the access - and we can't pay the cost

And how can we expect anyone to listen if we are using the same old voice?

We need new noise - new art for the real people

We dance to all the wrong songs

We enjoy all the wrong moves

We dance to all the wrong songs

We're not leading

We dance to all the wrong songs

We enjoy all the wrong moves

We dance to all the wrong songs

We're not, we're not, we're not, we're not, we're not, we're not...

Leading

We dance - all the wrong songs

We enjoy - all the wrong moves

We dance - all the wrong songs

We dance - all the wrong songs

We enjoy - all the wrong moves

We dance - all the wrong songs

Here we go!

We dance to all the wrong songs

We enjoy all the wrong moves

We dance to all the wrong songs

We're not leading. Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

The new beat! The new beat! The new beat! The new beat!

The new beat! The new beat! The new beat! The new beat!

The new beat! The new beat! The new beat! The new beat!

The new beat! The new beat! The new beat! The new beat!

Thank you.

New Noise by Refused

you always had the blondest hair.

Chlorine has stripped the pigment from your skin.

The cash was worth the fucking change.

At the pool from open to close.

Rake the bottom for loose change.

A job that got him his luxurious house and cars but it probably lead to his divorce.

Its probably the reason why his son hates him.

Now your blood is so toxic with chlorine that you only have 3 months to live.

Was the change worth it?

Was the divorce worth it?

You will never see your son again.

Regulators

We regulate any stealing of his property

And we damn good too

But you can't be any geek off the street,

Gotta be handy with the steel if you know what i mean, earn your keep!

Regulators!!! mount up!

G:

It was a clear black night, a clear white moon

Warren g was on the streets, trying to consume

Some skirts for the eve, so i can get some funk

Just rollin in my ride, chillin all alone

Nate:

Just hit the eastside of the lbc

On a mission trying to find mr. warren g.

Seen a car full of girls ain't no need to tweak

All you skirts know what's up with 213

G:

So i hooks a left on the 21 and lewis

Some brothas shootin dice so i said "let's do this"

I jumped out the ride, and said "what's up?"

Some brothas pulled some gats so i said "i'm stuck."

Nate:

Since these girls peepin me i'ma glide and swerve

These hookers lookin so hard they straight hit the curb

Won'tcha think of better things than some horny tricks

I see my homey and some suckers all in his mix

G:

I'm gettin jacked, i'm breakin myself

I can't believe they taking warren's wealth

They took my rings, they took my rolex

I looked at the brotha said "damn, what's next?"

Nate:

They got my homey hemmed up and they all around

Ain't none of them seeing if they going straight pound for pound

I gotta come up real quick before they start to clown

I best pull out my strap and lay them busters down

G:

They got guns to my head

I think i'm going down

I can't believe this happenin in my own town

If i had wings i could fly

Let me contemplate

I glanced in the cut and i see my homey nate

Nate:

Sixteen in the clip and one in the hole

Nate dogg is about to make some bodies turn cold

Now they droppin and yellin

It's a tad bit late

Nate dogg and warren g had to regulate

I laid all them busters down

I let my gat explode

Now i'm switching my mind back into freak mode

If you want skirts sit back and observe

I just left a gang of those over there on the curb

G:

Now nate got the freaks

And that's a known fact

Before i got jacked i was on the same track

Back up back up cause it's on

N a t e and me

The warren to the g

Nate:

Just like i thought

They were in the same spot

In need of some desperate help

The nate dogg and the g-child

Were in need of something else

One of them dames was sexy as hell

I said "ooo i like your size."

She said "my car's broke down and you seem real nice,

Would ya let me ride?"

I got a car full of girls and it's going real swell

The next stop is the eastside motel

G:

I'm tweaking

Into a whole new era

G-funk

Step to this

I dare ya

Funk

On a whole new level

Nate:

The rhythm is the bass and the bass is the treble

G:

Chords

Strings

We brings

Melody

G-funk

Where rhythm is life

And life is rhythm

Nate:

If you know like i know

You don't wanna step to this

It's the g-funk era

Funked out with a gangsta twist

If you smoke like i smoke

Then you high like everyday

And if your ass is a buster

213 will regulate

"Regulate" Warren G feat. Nate Dogg

The part in Bold is what I think is the best part of the song.

(Jamie Madrox)

Your whole life’s about to change in the next 20 seconds

As you glance there’s a lady running at your car half naked

Bleeding from her neck to her chest

And four guys chasing after her with axes and they look fucking possessed

Without thinking you unlock the doors to lend a hand

Before she gets in the car they’re approaching and coming fast

Hit the gas and she won’t stop screaming

She keeps saying over and over that she was mauled by a demon

Blood, so much blood it was unreal

She’d go quiet for a second then go nuts and grab the steering wheel

Just calm the fuck down, you’re scaring the shit out of me

I’m gonna take you to the hospital and leave you in the lobby

You're gonna be fine, side wiped in my blind side

By a goose and in the corner with one headlight

Just then I looked him right in the face

And seen two glowing eyes peering out of a pillow case

Now what the fuck is that? I think your friends are back

Hey lady wake up, you’re bleeding all over the dash

As I pushed her on the shoulder, she turned around and bit me

First the guys with the axes and now this bitch wants to kill me

(Chorus)

Hom-Sha-Bom

Release the spirit and move along

We'll be coming

They’ll be coming for you and it won’t be long

Hom-Sha-Bom

Release the spirit and move along

We'll be coming

They’ll be coming for you and it won’t be long

This body doesn’t belong to you (I know)

This body never belonged to you (I know)

This body doesn’t belong to you (I know)

This body never belonged to you (Just go)

(Monoxide Child)

Now they're on the side of us

I can either run us both off of the road or crash into a school bus

I'm looking out and see one of my front wheels

Go bouncing off a tree and now it's headed for my windshield

Pieces of glass are in my throat

And this bitch is in the front seat laughing like it's a joke

And now I look and see them coming, walking

They got their axes and they're talking in Aramaic or maybe it was Latin

I'm kinda woozy and I'm starting to trip

Cause this bitch must have bit a fucking hole in my wrist

I feel it throbbing like a heart attack

But I can't think about that and I all see is the end of a bloody axe

Come smashing through, all in my windows on both sides

And all these hands grabbing us out the ride

And choke holds applied and I'm thrown across the street

Face first and I'm so weak that I can barely even speak

There's gotta be some kind of code or witch practice

Some sort of a horrific movie of Black Magic

All the blood in my eyes, it couldn’t hide

And by the screams I heard, they must be ripping out her insides

(Chorus)

(Jamie Madrox)

I can't see, to much blood inside of my eyes

But I can kind of make out silhouettes to my surprise

I'm in the clear, no one surround me

But across the street it sounds just like the Exorcist movie

Screaming, crying, parked cars flying

Around and smashing into the ground, it's devastating

The strange motherfuckers with axes got us surrounded

I wonder if they're gonna kill her, my heart's pounding

Drowning in anticipation

I mean if they kill her, they're killing me and that's a fucked up situation

She's changing into a demon with every chant

They're saying in that language that I still don't understand

Then a burst of light exploded

And the ground started shaking and the side of a building a portal opened

She doesn't look anything like she did before

She's got the body of a snake with wings and devil horns

(Chorus)

Hom Sha Bom by Twiztid. The lyrics perfectly embody those old supernatural horror movies like the exorcist, or amityville.

Day after day your home life's a wreck

The powers that be just

Breathe down your neck

You get no respect

You get no relief

You gotta speak up

And yell out your piece

So back off your rules

Back off your jive

Cause I'm sick of not living

To stay alive

Leave me alone

I'm not asking a lot

I just don't want to be controlled

That's all I want

All I want

How many times is it gonna take

Till someone around you hears what you say

You've tried being cool

You feel like a lie

You've played by their rules

Now it's their turn to try

So back off your rules

Back off your jive

Cause I'm sick of not living

To stay alive

Leave me alone

I'm not asking a lot

I just don't want to be controlled

That's all I want

All I want

I said it before

I'll say it again

If you could just listen

Then it might make sense

"So Far Away" by Staind

this is my life

its not what it was before

all these feelings i've shared

and these are my dreams

that i'd never lived before

somebody shake me

'cause i

i must be sleeping

[chorus]

now that we're here,

it's so far away

all the struggle we thought was in vain

all the mistakes,

one life contained

they all finally start to go away

now that we're here its so far away

and i feel like i can face the day i can forgive

and i'm not ashamed to be the person that i am today

these are my words

that i've never said before

i think i'm doing okay

and this is the smile

that i've never shown before

somebody shake me 'cause i

i must be sleeping

[chorus]

i'm so afraid of waking

please don't shake me

afraid of waking

please don't shake me

Mina Olen - Kotitoelisuus

Joku vaihtaa öisin lähikauppojemme nimiä,

äidit synnyttävät lapsia joiden puhetta emme ymmärrä,

kuka hiippailee pois Suomi-neidon aitan liepeiltä,

neidon jonka kupeet huokuvat, nyt, ikuista kylmyyttä.

Ja se mies,

Jussi seisoo yksin suon laidalla,

on kuokka pudonnut,

räkä valuu hikisellä poskella.

Eikä mies tiedä mitä tehdä, mihin mennä nyt,

on sillä kylmää, kylmää kuten sisälläni on.

CHORUS:

Mutta minä olen ja elän ja hengitän,

yhtä suurta jumalaa,

elämänhalua.

Sen temppeleinä toimivat kapakat, ilotalot,

markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.

Mutta minä olen ja elän ja hengitän,

yhtä suurta jumalaa,

elämänhalua.

Sen temppeleinä toimivat kapakat, ilotalot,

markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.

Katson ulos ikkunasta,

en näe iloa täällä.

Levinneitä hiekkalaatikoita,

räkäisiä lähikapakoita.

Joista yksinhuoltajat raahaavat yhden yön toivoja,

jotka poistuvat aamulla,

ennen kuin lapset heräävät.

Anna minulle kätesi,

anna lupaus huomisesta,

lupaa etten yksin jää tähän,

kylmään elämään.

Tähän päivään jossa kaikuvat patsaisen jylhät äänet,

jossa syntynyt kulkee kuolleena,

etsien hautapaikkaansa.

CHORUS

Niin kaunis on kuun sirppi,

niin raikas on syksyn sateen jälkeinen tuoksu.

Kuka täällä komentaa?

ketä täällä totellaan?

Kahta suurta jumalaa,

ahneutta ja rahaa.

Joiden temppeleinä toimivat pörssit ja ilotalot,

markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.

Kuka täällä komentaa?

ketä täällä totellaan?

Kahta suurta jumalaa,

ahneutta ja rahaa.

Joiden temppeleinä toimivat pörssit ja ilotalot,

markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.

CHORUS

This Years Most Open Heartbreak - Funeral For A Friend

Broken hearts

Swept to hands that tied me

It's a pointless game

What better, let's play

Suicide

To kiss your kids goodnight

What you take from them

What they've taken from you

To be the last one who will sing you to sleep

To be the last one, who will sing you to...

Just like your broken records (you're broken)

Will convert, for you tonight

Broken hearts

Swept to hands that tied me

It's a pointless game

What better, let's play

Suicide

To kiss your kids goodnight

What you take from them

What they've taken from you

Just like your broken records (you're broken)

Will convert, for you tonight

Just like your broken records (you're broken)

Will convert, for you tonight

(We will never be the same)

Same old songs on a brand new stereo

(We will never be the same)

Same old songs on a brand new stereo

(We will never be the same)

Same old songs on a brand new stereo

(We will never be the same)

Same old songs!

To be the last one who will sing you to sleep

To be the last one, who will sing you to...

Just like your broken records (you're broken)

Will convert, for you tonight

Just like your broken records (you're broken)

Will convert, for you tonight

{Dr. Dre}

Things just ain't the same for gangstas.

Times is changing, young niggas is aging,

Becoming old gees in the game and changing,

To make way for these new names and faces, but

The strangest things can happen from rappin, when

Niggas get wrapped up in image and actin,

Niggas get capped up and wrapped in plastic,

Zipped up in bags when it happens, that's it.

I've seen em come; I've watched em go,

Watched em rise, witnessed it and watched em blow.

Watched em up high, suddenly watched em grow.

Watched the lawsuits when they lost the dough.

Best friends and money: I lost them both.

Went, visited niggas in the hospital.

It's all the same shit all across the globe.

I just sit back and watch the show. (The watcher)

Everywhere that I go

Ain't the same as befo' (The watcher)

People I used to know

I got people I know (The watcher)

Who got people they know

So I suggest you lay low (I watch)

{Dr. Dre}

I moved out of the hood for good, you blame me?

Niggas ain't made me if niggas they can't be.

But niggas can't hit niggas they can't see.

I'm out of sight, now I'm out of they dang reach.

How would you feel if niggas wanted you killed?

You'd probably move to a new house on a new hill.

And choose a new spot if niggas wanted you shot,

I ain't a thug, how much Tupac in you, you got

I ain't no bitch neither.

It's either my life or your life,

And I ain't leaving, I like breathing.

Nigga we can go round for round,

Clip for clip, shit, fo' - pound for pound.

Nigga if you really want to take it there we can,

Just remember that you fuckin with a family man.

I got a lot more to lose than you, remember that,

When you wanna come and fill these shoes. (The watcher)

{Dr. Dre}

Things just ain't the same for gangstas,

Cops is anxious to put niggas in handcuffs.

They wanna hang us, see us dead, enslave us,

Keep us trapped in the same place we're raised in.

Then they wonder why we act so outrageous,

Run around stressed out and pull out gauges.

Cause everytime you let the animal out cages,

It's dangerous to people who look like strangers.

But now we got a new era of gangstas,

Hustlers and youngsters livin amongst us.

Lookin at us, now callin us busters,

Can't help but reminisce back when it was us.

Nigga we started this gangsta shit.

And this the motherfuckin thanks I get?

It's funny how time fly,

I'm just havin fun, just watchin it fly by. (The watcher)

(The watcher)

That's my favourite song, I always liked RETURN OF THE MACK~! too ;)

All along, we follow blindly,

Force-fed prime time, printed nightly,

Why would anybody leave the safety of their home?

I wonder why,

I wonder why,

Only disasters flood the headlines,

Other people’s misery,

Are up for the next three hours,

Commercial free.

And I can’t take much more of this,

We’re all so wrapped up, in it,

Nothing will change, but the channels,

So I turn it off.

I see billboards on the horizon,

I can’t imagine what they’ll tell me,

What to wear,

What to drink,

Where to eat,

It’s so easy not to think for yourself anymore,

So naive,

You don’t do anything anymore.

And I can’t take much more of this,

We’re all so wrapped up, in it,

Nothing will change, but the channel,

And no,

I can’t take much more of this,

We’re all so wrapped up, in it,

Nothing will change, but the channel...

We all give in,

We all complain,

We sit and wait,

For things to change,

Worrying,

Worrying.

All along, we follow blindly,

All along, we follow blindly.

And I can’t take much more of this,

We’re all so wrapped up, in it,

Nothing will change, but the channel,

And no,

I can’t take much more of this,

We’re all so wrapped up, in it,

Nothing will change, but the channels,

So I turn it off...

Turn it off...

Coming out of my cage

And I've been doing just fine

Gotta gotta be down

Because I want it all

It started out with a kiss

How did it end up like this?

It was only a kiss

It was only a kiss

Now I'm falling asleep

And she's calling a cab

While he's having a smoke

And she's taking a drag

Now they're going to bed

And my stomach is sick

And its all in my head

But she's touching his chest now

He takes off her dress now

Let me go

And I just can't look its killing me

And taking control

Jealousy turning saints into the sea

Swimming through sick lullabye

Joking on your alibis

But its just the price I pay

Destiny is calling me

Open up my eager eyes

'Cos I'm Mr Brightside

(Twice, then...)

I never

I never

I never

I never

These have to be my new favourite lyrics ever...

The Killers - Mr. Brightside.
