RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
Sitting in the theater well stoned, when the movie was new, and "The Harder They Come" starts with this:

Well they tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day you're born and when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry

I have been a fan of reggae ever since.

Just for reference: Many pages ago a version of "Last Kiss" by Pearl Jam was posted, I could only think huh. Originally by Wayne Cochran this became a hit as done by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers. This is but one of a series of lame teenage angst songs that infected my high school years and should be excised from anyone's memory banks. As proof I offer the fact that although I own a 45 record version of it I have not listened to it for some 20 years. I probably should sell the record to some freak.

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
Oh boy. I could post so many. But I'll just start with my favorite four songs from Gojira's L'enfant Sauvage.

*

Explosia

Jealously will crush you to the bones
Unless you open up and let it go
I've only seen too much of it
I'm bursting open while you set the tone
You ignored this fury too long, I explode
Bring back to life this anger, let it grow
Put aside mind traps and false belives
These heavy weights created pull you down
The mask you wear is falling
Try on and watch it fall
Hands down you feel the moment
Releasing out a lifetime
All prayers to these gods
While the tide is growing high
Will you make us stronger
When you strike us down?

*

L'enfant Sauvage

So long I've been trying to match
It doesn't work
I'm trying
I don't know
The apparition of this world
I try to deal with

I've killed the part of me
That was raging
The pain is gone
The denial
I've run away from institutions
I owe myself
Life

There's no way
I will respond to this passion and anger
Flowing through me
There is light in this world I fight for
The reason you won't leave this cage
Betray your child
The desire that you won't serve to reveal yourself
Forgot to create your own life

Anger
Lies
Denial

This righteous anger
Boiling inside of us
Won't last forever
Don't fear to let it out
Branches are coming through,
The wolf is the master

The sky is all over me
I run on time.

*

Liquid Fire

Eject from the womb, restrained, I'm catching the wind
Unfolded fire blows with the words, straight from within
The second I was born I found a shelter deep in my own
I ventured further out on the edge of the glacier
This is how we talk to the world
Pure liquid fire running through our veins
We're in this alone, we bow to no one
Carved by the waves, our sacred temple
Sing the praises of no flag, we set the tone
This is no fiction, we've come to an end now
Our conviction untouched, we build a life straight
Intelligence of heart as only guidance
Infinite power lies all around us and in the heart
The flashes find a way, stealing through these broken walls
And when this fire grows, it does it so we can't remember
The meaning of this life, we'll be marching until the end
Had not taste for more lies, we are standing alone
The bright treasure found has no price and no name
In the light of this star, with the forces aligned
This is how we talk to the world
Pure liquid fire running through our veins
We're in this alone, we bow to no one
Carved by the waves, our sacred temple
Sing the praises of no flag, we set the tone
This is no fiction, we've come to an end now
Our conviction untouched, we build a life straight
Intelligence of heart as only guidance

*

The Gift of Guilt

We leave the shores to see the mountains rising
A distant impression growing
This judgement creates the pain in we hold
Destructive intentions that serve no purpose
But the end of us all
These vultures from the past, coming
In all the hells and worlds, the time has come
Delivered from their eyes
Embrace, suffer, destroy - gift of guilt
The shame and sorrow, self-condemnation
Fill all the gaps and the spaces, unyielding
Bestowed upon us, devastating power
We're building connective tissue to a maze of lies
We're left as starving orphans
The vital core is gone
Our sins are all over and over again we swallow
We're sick and tired when this wind blows
The reflex is insane
We must forgive and stop blaming ourselves for this love
These vultures from the past, coming
In all the hells and worlds, the time has come
Delivered from their eyes
I'm leaving this behind - the gift of guilt

You made me hate my own reflection, question every choice I made. So I could try to be perfect but I won't try to be fake.

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
I just purchased the new album in Itunes earlier, so I'm kind of on a F.O.B. kick... Cool

"Don’t panic
No not yet
I know I’m the one you want to forget
Cue all the love to leave my heart
It’s time for me to fall apart...

Baby you were my picket fence...

Sometimes before it gets better
The darkness gets bigger
The person that you’d take a bullet for is behind the trigger
Oh
We’re fading fast" -Fall Out Boy "Miss Missing You"

"It was life, often unsatisfying, frequently cruel, usually boring, sometimes beautiful, once in awhile exhilarating." -Stephen King

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
"Alone Together"

I don't know where you're going
But do you got room for one more troubled soul?
I don't know where I'm going but I don't think I'm coming home
And I said I'll check in tomorrow if I don't wake up dead
This is the road to ruin
And we're starting at the end

Say yeah
Let's be alone together
We could stay young forever
Scream it from the top of your lungs
Say yeah
Let's be alone together
We could stay young forever
We'll stay young, young, young, young, young.

You cut me off, I lost my track
It's not my fault, I'm a maniac
It's not funny anymore, no it's not

My heart is like a stallion
They love it more when it's broken
Do you wanna feel beautiful?
Do you wanna?

I'm outside the door, invite me in
So we can go back and play pretend
I'm on deck, yeah, I'm up next
Tonight I'm high as a running check...

"It was life, often unsatisfying, frequently cruel, usually boring, sometimes beautiful, once in awhile exhilarating." -Stephen King

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
Go away from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I'm not the one you want, babe
I'm not the one you need
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who's never weak but always strong
To protect you and defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door

But it ain't me babe
No, no, no, it ain't me babe
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe

Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want, babe
I'll only let you down
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who'll promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes to you
Someone to close his heart
Someone to die for you and more

Go melt into the night, babe
Everything inside's made of stone
There's nothing in here moving
And anyway, I'm not alone

You say you're lookin' for someone
To pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
And to come each time you call
And will love you for your life
And nothin' more - Bob Dylan "It Ain't me, Babe"

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
Dukes of Stratosphear - Little Lighthouse :

She's a little lighthouse when she
Opens up her huge eyes
And streams of diamonds shoot out
'Til we're wading waist deep
In her brilliant love

She's a little lighthouse when she
Opens up her red mouth
And gold word ribbons rope and rodeo
The dark clouds in bouquet above

For how long will this dark age last?
For how long must we wait to learn?
Across the black and fossil ocean vast
I spy love and she doth brightly burn
Love sure lives in the right house

She's a little lighthouse when she
Opens up her huge mind and
Thoughts descending spears of crystal
Build a Jacob's ladder up to love

She's a little lighthouse
When she opens up her red dress
Show skin of rubber marble
Lit by knowledge and the fireflies above

And can others see this splendid beam?
Or do they navigate in dark?
If you ever want to dock your dream
Well you'll need love
To guide your fragile ark

Love sure keeps a bright house
She's a little lighthouse

NOTE: I dislike sappy, schmaltzy love songs. I do however enjoy clever, witty love songs. Andy Partridge's lyrics are like brain candy to me.

He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy! -Brian's mum

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
In mysterious ways your soul sinks down
As eerie constellations told of it before
This time you cannot hide
A maelstrom of inhuman fears
And the only way... goes down... down... down...

Gone days of phantasmagoria
Welcome to the necromantic gallery
Where nightmares become so real
And souls are stigmatized with the sign of impurity

Desolation all around
Welcome to the promised land
Where no single beam of light ever touched the ground
Life eternal in a traumatic fade

Believe me this is not a dream
These dead eyes you're gazing at are yours
Call it heaven, call it hell...
This is where the restless dwell

Misshapen silhouettes so awake
Black faces and only shades of grey
Distorted incantations
And prayers for aeons unheard
In wastelands of delusion

- Dark Fortress: "Ghastly Indoctrination"

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.
Ridi, Pagliaccio, sul tuo amore infranto! Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!
