Lost Johnny - Hawkwind

You only get a single chance
The rules are very plain
The truth is well concealed inside
The details of the game
You can see it coming
You can hear it from afar
It's pale and it flickers
Like a faded movie star
And up there in the castle
They're trying to make us scream
By sticking thumb tacks in her flesh
And cancelling the dream
Can you find the valium?
Can you bring it soon?
Lost Johnny's out there
Baying at the Moon
The time has come for you to choose
You'd better get it right
Berlin girls with sharp white teeth
Are waiting in the night
But you oughta really get some
It surely can't be hard
There's always trouble waiting
When you leave your own back yard
And underneath the city
The alligators sing
About how the puppets cannot dance
Since someone cut the strings
Run and get the morphine
For God's sake make it brief
Lost Johnny's out there
Looking for relief
Now Simon looks so evil
And you know he really tries
But every time he makes a play
That vital number dies
And Sally buys her underwear
From a store where no-one goes
She makes it big in photographs
On the strength of what she shows
And here inside the waiting room
The radio still screams
And we're all taking Tuenol
To murder our young dreams
Run and fetch your credit card
Try to make it quick
Lost Johnny's out there
Trying to turn a trick

(just one verse from el-p "dead disnee")
Front now, you got a cheshire cat grin
eerie malevolence of commerce combined with backspins
I'm just a kid, tryin' to do good for my friends whose lives end
While the queen of radio play painting the carnations red
Fantasia 2000, was a number one flick
The housing development built to collapse quick
arousing the relevant faith to berate this
Dousing the machine, gasoline and flame fists
I'm full blown, apocaloid perp needle dirt
Born to make a thumper that warns the scorched earth
Anarchist chef, make napalm from Nerf
Put the propane to the fertilizer watch it convert
Penny... ante, cheaply imitated
the dead dis rotary blade persuade many
But look a little closer, the jails are not empty
the rabbit hole, made for the meek and re-entry
You're on the wrong side of the looking glass now Paw, face it
My brainiac drums make computers lose patience
Decepticon era kid, scream Zulu Nation
A hundred and forty nine stay high battle cadence

(terrapin-garcia,hunter)
Inspiration, move me brightly
Light the song with sense of colour
Hold away despair
More than this I will not ask
Faced with mysteries dark and vast
Statements just seem vain at last
Some rise, some fall, some climb (note 1)
To get to Terrapin


Counting stars by candlelight
Some are dim but one is bright
The spiral light on Venus
Rising first and shining best
Oh, from the north-west corner
Of a brand new crescent moon
Where crickets and cicadas sing
A rare and different tune
Terrapin Station
In the shadow of the moon
Terrapin Station
And I know we'll be there soon


(Terrapin)
I can't figure out
(Terrapin)
If it's the end or beginning (note 2)
(Terrapin)
But the train's put it brakes on
(Terrapin)
And the whistle is screaming
Terrapin

Night Blindness - David Grey


A million to one outsiders
Nightblindness
Can't see

Your bright eyes are what
The time is
Twenty five past eternity

Hear you listening
To the silence
Coming closer
Now further away

What we gonna do when the money runs out
I wish that there was something left to say
Where we going to find the eyes to see the bright of day

I'm sick of all the same romances
Lost chances
Cold storms

Propping mountains up
On matchsticks
Dragging baskets full of bones

And honey please don't stop
Your talking
Cause there's a feeling
Won't leave me alone

What we gonna do when the money runs out
I wish that there was something I could say
How we going to find the eyes to see the bright of day?

What we gonna do when the money runs out
I wish that there was something left to say
How we going to find the eyes to see the bright of day?

The bright of day the bright of day

Sarcasm by: Get Scared



You've got me shaking from the way you're talking
 My heart is breaking but there's no use crying
 What a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
 If I had common sense I'd cut myself or curl up and die!
 Sticks and stones could break my bones
 But anything you say will only fuel my lungs!
 
Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts!
 If this is love I don't wanna be loved!
 You pollute the room with a filthy tongue!
 Watch me choke it down so I can throw it up.
 
Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts!
 If this is love I don't wanna be hanging by the neck!
 Before an audience of death.
 
You'd be the corpse and I would be the killer
 I'd be the devil and you would be the sinner
 You'd be the drugs and I would be the dealer
 Everything you say is like music to my ears!
 
You'd be the corpse and I would be the killer
 I'd be the devil and you would be the sinner
 You'd be the drugs and I would be the dealer
 Everything you say is like music to my ears
 
Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts!
 If this is love I don't wanna be loved!
 You pollute the room with a filthy tongue!
 Watch me choke it down so I can throw it up.
 
Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts!
 If this is love I don't wanna be hanging by the neck!
 Before an audience of death.
 
Failure find me
 You set me up now
 The sun is red as red as it gets
 You hang me up now by my neck cause I'm a fate worse than death
 What a cyanide surprise you have left for my eyes
 If I had common sense I'd cut myself or curl up and die!
 
Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts!
 If this is love I don't wanna be loved!
 You pollute the room with a filthy tongue!
 Watch me choke it down so I can throw it up!
 
Don't mind us we're just spilling our guts!
 If this is love I don't wanna be hanging by the neck!
 Before an audience of death.

Older chests reveal themselves,
Like in a crack in the wall,
Starting small,
Then grow in time.
We all seem to need the help,
Of someone else,
To mend that shelf of too many books,
Read me your favourite line.

Papa went to other lands,
And he found someone who understands,
The ticking of the western mans need to cry.
He came back the other day,
Yeah, you know,
Something’s in life may change,
But something’s, they stay the same,
Like time.

There’s always time,
On my mind.
So pass me by,
I’ll be fine,
Just give me time.

Older gents sit on the fence,
With a cap in hand,
Looking grand,
They watch their city change.
Children scream,
Or so it seems,
Louder than before,
Outta doors,
And into stores,
With bigger names.

Mama tried to wash their faces,
But these kids they lost their graces,
When daddy lost at the races too many times.
She broke down the other day,
Yeah, you know,
Something’s in life may change,
But something’s, they stay the same,
Like time.

There’s always time,
On my mind.
So pass me by,
I’ll be fine,
Just give me time.

The Phoenix Within Me:

Its right..under my skin
movin within me till I feel i would explode
and its right...under my skin
But I wont give in till
I can recognize my soul...
Oh yeah...
Oh yeah....
Cause its right ..

movin within me
till I feel I would explode

under my skin
but I wont give in
Till 
I can recognize my soul...
Yes its right...un der my skin

Livin within me
settin my soul free
Livin within in me

Vide Infra by Killswitch Engage

I have opened my eyes to see 
the world the surrounds me daily
I refuse to be led by the majority
Can't compromise I and I
To pass judgment
Judgment will be passed upon you
I will stand up for who I am
Never moved by condemnation

No one is placed higher than another
No matter race or creed or gender
We must teach forgiveness and compassion for all life

Through understanding of our differences
We will find respect for one another
We are all flesh and blood

I am not afraid to speak my mind
No matter the consequences
Stay true to yourself
Through the humble eyes of a child 
we will realize true equality
They can not take me from me
They can not take you from you

Right In Two - Tool

Angels on the sideline,
Puzzled and amused.
Why did Father give these humans free will?
Now they're all confused.

Don't these talking monkeys know that
Eden has enough to go around?
Plenty in this holy garden, silly monkeys,
Where there's one you're bound to divide it.
Right in two.

Angels on the sideline,
Baffled and confused.
Father blessed them all with reason.
And this is what they choose.
And this is what they choose...

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs,
They forge a blade,
And where there's one
they're bound to divide it,
Right in two.
Right in two.

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey.
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs.
They make a club.
And beat their brother, down.
How they survive so misguided is a mystery.

Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here.

Cut it all right in two [x4]

Fight over the clouds, over wind, over sky
Fight over life, over blood, over prayer,
overhead and light
Fight over love, over sun,
over another, Fight...

Angels on the sideline again.
Benched along with patience and reason.
Angels on the sideline again
Wondering when this tug of war will end.

Cut it all right in two [x3]
RIGHT IN TWO!

Right in two...

The Hand That Feeds ~ NIN

You're keeping in step
In the line
Got your chin held high and you feel just fine
Because you do
What you're told
But inside your heart it is black and it's hollow and it's cold

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

What if this whole crusade's
A charade
And behind it all there's a price to be paid
For the blood
On which we dine
Justified in the name of the holy and the divine

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

So naive
I keep holding on to what I want to believe
I can see
But I keep holding on and on and on and on

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees? [8X]

Hope Is by Killswitch Engage
Let the strength of your words
Be the spark that ignites the flame
Proclaim your freedom
Give voice to your liberation

This is my confession
Mark these words, we will rise

Weep no more
We will prevail
Grieve no more
We will prevail

Revoke the needless way of affliction
Revoke and abandon
We are the authors, finishers of our faith
We are the solution

This is my confession
Mark these words, we will rise

Weep no more
We will prevail
Grieve no more
We will prevail

Hope is...
Hope is not lost

Weep no more
We will prevail
Grieve no more
We will prevail

This is our moment
Will you stand with me?
Hope is not lost
Hope is not lost

Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes in the early morning rain
Lately my hands they don't feel like mine
My eyes been stung with dust, I'm blind
Held you in my arms one time
Lost you just the same
Jolene
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze on my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
in the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means
Jolene
Ah, La, La, La, La, La
Jolene
Been so long since I seen your face
or felt a part of this human race
I've been living out of this here suitcase for way too long
A man needs something he can hold onto
A nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do
Jolene
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means

"Come Together"

Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster he got early warning
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

John Lennon
