Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall (Part II)
Pure classic ;)

We don’t need no education.
We don’t need no thought control.
No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
Teacher, leave those kids alone.
Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.

We don’t need no education.
We don’t need no thought control.
No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
Teachers, leave those kids alone.
Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone!
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.
"I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!"

On this oh so 'auspicious' day in Canada.. this seems oddly apt... :D


Always Look on the Bright Side of Life (from Monty Python)

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of ****
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

A song from Richard Thompson :D

Vincent Black Lightning 1952

Said Molly to James, "That's a fine motorbike.
A girl could feel special on any such like".
Said James to Molly, "It's hats off to you,
it's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952.
And I've seen you on the corners, and the cafes, it seems.
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour schemes."
And he pulled around behind, and off to Box Hill
They did ride.

Said James to Molly, "Here's a ring for your right hand,
but I tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man.
See, I fought with the law since I was seventeen,
I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine.
And now I'm 21 years, I might make 22,
but I don't mind dying, but for the love of you.
But if fate should break my stride,
I'll give you my Vincent
to ride".

"Come down, come down Red Molly", yelled Sergeant McRae,
"They've taken young James adie for armed robbery.
Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside.
Hurry down Red Molly to his dying bedside".
When they came to the hospital, there wasn't much left.
He was running out of road, he was running out of breath.
But he smiled to see her cry,
and gave her his Vincent
to ride.

Said James "in my opinion, there's nothing in this world,
beats a '52 Vincent and a red-headed girl.
See, Hondas and Enfields and Harleys and Greaves won't do.
They don't have a soul like a Vincent '52".
He reached out his hands, and he slipped her the keys,
said "I've got no further use for these.
I see angels and aerials in leather and chrome,
swooping down from heaven to carry me home".
And he gave her one last kiss and died,
and gave her his Vincent
to ride.

And another

Beeswing

I was nineteen when I came to town
They called in the Summer of Love
They were burningbabies, burning flags
The Hawks against the Doves

I took a job in the STeamie
Down on Cauldrum Street
I fell in love with a laundry girl
Was working next to me

CHORUS
She was a rare thing
Fine as a beeswing
So fine a breath of wind might blow her away
She was a lost child
She was running wild, she said
As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay
And you wouldn't want me any other way

Brown hair zig-zag round her face
And a look of half-surprise
Like a fox caught in the headlights
There was an animal in her eyes

She said, young man, O can't you see
I'm not the factory kind
If you don't take me out of here
I'll surely lose my miind

CHORUS

We busked around the market towns
And picked fruit down in Kent
And we could tinker lamps and pots
And knives wherever we went

And I said that we might settle down
Get a few acres dug
Fire burning in the hearth
And babies on the rug

She said O man, you foolish man
It surely sounds like hell
You might be lord of half the world
You'll not own me as well

CHORUS

We was camping down the Gower one time
The work was pretty good
She thought we shouldn't wait for frost
And I thought maybe we should

We were drinking more in those days
And tempers reached a pitch
Like a fool I let her run
With the rambling itch

Last I hear she's sleeping out
Back on Derby beat
White Horse in her hip pocket
And a wolfhound at her feet

And they say she even marriend once
A man named Romany Brown
But even a Gypsy caravan
Was too much settliing down

And they say her flower is faded now
Hard weather and hard booze
But maybe that's just hte price you pay
For the chains you refuse

She was a rare thing
Fine as a beeswing
And I missher more than ever words could say
If I could just taste
All of her wildness now
If I could hold her in my arms today
Then I wouldn't want her any other way

I'll stop now

I have to double post, I'm afraid. It's Burns Night.

Ae Fond Kiss
by Robert Burns

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever
Ae farewell, and then forever
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and goans I'll wage thee.

Who shall say that Fortune grieves him,
While the star of hope she leaves him
Me nae cheerful twinkle lights me,
Dark despair around benights me.

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy:
Nothing could resist my Nancy
But to see her was to love her
Love but her, and love for ever.

Had we never loe'd sae kindly,
Had we never loe'd sae blindly,
Never met - nor never parted -
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare thee weel, thou first and fairest
Fare thee weel, thou best and dearest
Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
Peace, Enjoyment, Love and Pleasure

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever
Ae farewell, alas, for ever
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.

And a double at that too, so on a not with the last that leaves me so damm Dazzed and Confused

LED ZEPPELIN LYRICS

"Dazed And Confused"

Been Dazed and Confused for so long it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abuse tellin' all of your lies.
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been.
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin', only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?
Screamming!!!!!!!!!!!!

AC/DC
Rock and Roll Aint Noise Pollution



Hey there, all you middle men!
Throw away your fancy clothes!
And while you're out there sittin' on a fence get off your *** and come down here!
'Cause rock 'n' roll ain't no riddle man
To me it makes good, good sense!
Good sense Ow Oooh yeah
Heavy decibels are playing on my guitar!
We got vibrations coming up from the floor!
We're just listening to the rock making too much noise
Are you deaf, you wanna hear some more?
We're just talkin' about the future,
Forget about the past!
It'll always be with us It's never gonna die,
never gonna die!
Rock 'n' roll ain't noise pollution!
Rock 'n' roll ain't gonna die,
Rock 'n' roll ain't noise pollution!
Rock 'n' roll it will survive!
Yes it will, ha ha ha ha
I took a look inside your bedroom door,
You looked so good lying on your bed!
Well, I asked you if you wanted any rhythmic love,
but you said you wanna rock 'n' roll instead!
We're just talkin' about the future,
Forget about the past!
It'll always be with us!
It's never gonna die, never gonna die!
Rock 'n' roll ain't noise pollution
Rock 'n' roll ain't gonna die!
Rock 'n' roll ain't no pollution!
Rock 'n' roll is just rock 'n' roll!
Oh Rock 'n' roll ain't noise pollution!
Rock 'n' roll ain't gonna die!
Rock 'n' roll ain't no pollution!
Rock 'n' roll ain't gonna die!
Rock 'n' roll ain't no pollution!
Rock 'n' roll it'll never die!
Rock 'n' roll ain't no pollution!
Rock 'n' roll Oh Rock 'n' roll is just rock 'n' roll

@chu, nice. :cool: :D

These two are really good ballads. Definitely some of my favourites.

[color="PaleGreen"]
SOMETHING by THE BEATLES

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don't wanna leave her now
You know I believe, and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don't wanna leave her now
You know I believe and how

You're asking me will my love grow?
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around now, it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don't wanna leave her now
You know I believe and how.
[/color]

And now this one. It's great.

[color="palegreen"]YESTERDAY by THE BEATLES

Yesterday
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly
I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go,
I don't know, she wouldn't say
I said something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go,
I don't know, she wouldn't say
I said something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Hmm, hmm, hmm…[/color]

A song that probably should have been in the Baldur's Gate series.

Honestly, when I hear this songs (mostly the lyrics), I do really think of the whole Bhaalspawn saga. Particularly since the second verse and chorus do fit Bhaal's portfolio and his legacy. The rest seems to fit the protagonist's story throughout the game (IMHO).

Motorhead - [color="Red"]Sacrifice[/color]

Why do they not believe
I have not lied, even for this,
Now no-one can conceive
The lie becomes the loving kiss,
But I would not,
Fall in love,
Like this.

The woman stiches the shrouds,
The children murder all the world,
If only you believe,
Then only you will die,
How can you not,
See the stars,
In your eyes.

(chorus) Sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice,
Sacrifice, pay the price, blood like ice, sacrifice.

*instrumental*

The pain is on you now,
Do not consider flight for gain,
In you the poison breeds,
Crawling with the mark of Cain,
And no-one shall,
Set you free,
Again.

(chorus) Sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice,
Sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice

Lifes been good,
Joe Walsh


I have a mansion but forget the price
Ain't never been there, they tell me its nice
I live in hotels, tear out the walls
I have accountants pay for it all

They say I'm crazy but I have a have a good time
I'm just looking for clues at the scene of the crime
Life's been good to me so far

My Maseratti does one-eighty-five
I lost my license, now I dont drive
I have a limo, ride in the back
I lock the doors in case I'm attacked

I'm making records, my fans they can't wait
They write me letters, tell me I'm great
So I got me an office, gold records on the wall
Just leave a message, maybe I'll call

Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through
I cant complain but sometimes I still do
Life's been good to me so far

I go to parties sometimes until four
It's hard to leave when you can't find the door
It's tough to handle this fortune and fame
Everybody's so different, I haven't changed

They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time
I keep on goin' guess I'll never know why
Life's been good to me so far





Heh, that sounds about as random as me. :cool: :p :D

Here is a new song, again from Nightwish.
It's the songmaker's of Nightwish tribute to American Indians.

Creek Mary´s Blood

Soon I will be here no more
You`ll hear the tale
Through my blood
Through my people
And the eagle`s cry
The bear within will never lay to rest

Wandering on Horizon Road
Following the trail of tears

White man came
Saw the blessed land
We cared, you took
You fought, we lost
Not the war but an unfair fight
Sceneries painted beautiful in blood

Wandering on Horizon Road
Following the trail of tears
Once we were here
Where we have lived since the world began
Since time itself gave us this land

Our souls will join again the wild
Our home in peace `n war `n death

Wandering on Horizon Road...

" I still dream every night
Of them wolves, them mustangs, those endless prairies
The restless winds over mountaintops
The unspoilt frontier of my kith n`kin
The hallowed land of the Great Spirit
I still believe
In every night
In every day
I am like the caribou
And you like the wolves that make me stronger
We never owed you anything
Our only debt is one life for our Mother
It was a good day to chant this song
For Her

Our spirit was here long before you
Long before us
And long will it be after your pride brings you to your end "
"As we all know, holy men were born during Christmas...
Like mr. Holopainen over there!"
[color="Red"]- Marco Hietala, the bass player of Nightwish[/color]

This is good advice :D


Get On With Your Short Life

You keep saying that one day things could
be fabulous,
If only you had the right shoes, new
clothes, the dream team doing your hair.
Why do you have to waste time on your
waistline when you could be having
dinner with me?
Will you really be the winner
if you’re thinner?
How can I make you see?

Get on with your short life,
Get on with this sweet precious time,
You know you’re only dreaming
So why don’t you wake up and get on
with your short life

You keep praying that some day things
will be different
If you only had the right lips, killer hips,
a sun kissed permanent tan
But does it really matter if you’re fatter
than everybody else on the screen
It’s more important to be truthful than just
youthful on the cover of some magazine

Get on with your short life,
Get on with this sweet precious time,
You know you’re only dreaming
So why don’t you wake up and get on with
your short life

Ocean Colour Scene - The Day We Caught The Train
A band from around these parts, made an impression in the early nineties with their Luddite attitude to rock music. Worth a listen for the pleasant chorus if nothing else :)

I never saw it as the start
It’s more a change of heart
Rapping on the windows, whistling down the chimney pots
Blowing off the dust in the room where I forgot
Yeah I laid my plans in solid rock
Stepping through the door like a troubadour whiling just an hour away
Looking at the trees on the roadside feeling it’s a brighter day

You and I should ride the coast
And wind up in our favourite coats just miles away
Roll a number, write another song like
Jimmy heard the day he caught the train

He sipped another rum and coke and told a dirty joke
Walking like groucho sucking on a number 10
Rolling on the floor with the cigarette burns walked in
Yeah I miss the crush and I’m home again
Stepping through the door with the night in store whiling just an hour away,
Looking at the trees and the star-bright feeling it’s a brighter day

Repeat chorus

You and I should ride the tracks
And find ourselves just wading through tomorrow
But you and I when we’re coming down
We’re only getting back
You know I feel the sorrow

When you find that things are getting wild
Don’t you want days like these...
Don’t you need days like these...
"I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!"

ThunderStruck

(A. Young / M. Young)


Thunder, thunder, thunder, thunder
I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track
I looked round
And I knew there was no turning back
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you
Sound of the drums
Beating in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
You've been
Thunderstruck

Rode down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the ton
Went through to Texas, yeah Texas, and we had some fun
We met some girls
Some dancers who gave a good time
Broke all the rules
Played all the fools
Yeah yeah they, they, they blew our minds
And I was shaking at the knees
Could I come again please
Yeah them ladies were too kind
You've been
Thunderstruck

I was shaking at the knees
Could I come again please

Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck
It's alright, we're doin' fine
It's alright, we're doin' fine, fine, fine
Thunderstruck, yeah, yeah, yeah
Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck
Thunderstruck, baby, baby
Thunderstruck, you've been Thunderstruck
Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck
You've been Thunderstruck

P.O.D. - Youth of the Nation

Last day of the rest of my life
I wish I would have known
Cause I didn't kiss my mama good-bye
I didnt tell her how that I loved her
How much I care
Or thank my pops for all the talks and all the wisdom he shared
Unaware I just did what I always do
Everyday the same routine before I skate off to school
But who knew this day wasnt like the rest
Instead of taking the test I took two to the chest
Call me blind but I didnt see it coming
Everybody was running but i couldnt hear nothing
Except Gunblast
It happened so fast
I didn't really know this kid though i sit by him in class
Maybe this kid was reaching out for love
Or maybe for a moment he forgot who he was
Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged
Whatever it was I know its because

We are we are, the youth of the nation
We are we are, youth of the nation
We are we are, the youth of the nation
We are we are, youth of the nation

Little Susie she was only twelve
She was given the world with every chance to excell
Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell
She might act kind of proud with no respect for herself
She finds love in all the wrong places
The same situations just different faces
Changed up her pace since her daddy left her
Too bad he never told she deserved much better

Johnny boy always played the fool
He broke all the rules so you would think he was cool
He was never really one of the guys no matter how hard he tried
Often thought of suicide
Its kind of hard when you aint got no friends
He put his life to an end they might remember him then
You cross the line and theres no turning back
Told the world how he felt with the sound of a gat

We are we are, the youth of the nation
We are we are, youth of the nation
We are we are, the youth of the nation
We are we are, youth of the nation

Whos to blame for the life that tradgedies claim
No matter what you say it dont take away the pain that I feel inside
Im tired of all the lies
Don't nobody know why
Its the blind leading the blind

Guess thats the way the story goes
Will it never makes sense
Somebodys gotta know

Theres gotta be more to life then this
Theres gotta be more to everything I thought exists

We are we are, the youth of the nation
We are we are, youth of the nation

We are we are (we are we are), the youth of the nation
We are we are (we are we are), youth of the nation
We are we are, (we are we are) the youth of the nation
We are we are, (we are we are) youth of the nation
We are we are, (we are we are) the youth of the nation
We are we are, (we are we are)youth of the nation (youth of the nation)
We are, youth of the nation (x3)
We are

Ok! Who moved the thread?! :mad: spent ages looking for it!

Jesus Of Suburbia - Green Day

[Part 1]

I'm the son of rage and love
The Jesus of suburbia
From the bible of none of the above
On a steady diet of
Soda pop and Ritalin
No one ever died for my sins in hell
As far as I can tell
At least the ones I got away with

And there's nothing wrong with me
This is how I'm supposed to be
In a land of make believe
That don't believe in me

Get my television fix
Sitting on my crucifix
The living room or my private womb
While the moms and brads are away
To fall in love and fall in debt
To alcohol and cigarettes and Mary Jane
To keep me insane doing someone else's cocaine

And there's nothing wrong with me
This is how I'm supposed to be
In a land of make believe
That don't believe in me

[Part 2: City Of The Damned]

At the center of the Earth
In the parking lot
Of the 7-11 were I was taught
The motto was just a lie
It says home is where your heart is
But what a shame
Cause everyone's heart
Doesn't beat the same
It's beating out of time

City of the dead
At the end of another lost highway
Signs misleading to nowhere
City of the damned
Lost children with dirty faces today
No one really seems to care

I read the graffiti
In the bathroom stall
Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall
And so it seemed to confess
It didn't say much
But it only confirmed that
The center of the earth
Is the end of the world
And I could really care less

City of the dead
At the end of another lost highway
Signs misleading to nowhere
City of the damned
Lost children with dirty faces today
No one really seems to care....

[Part 3: I don't care]

I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care

I don't care......

Everyone's so full of ****
Born and raised by hypocrites
Hearts recycled but never saved
From the cradle to the grave
We are the kids of war and peace
From Anaheim to the middle east
We are the stories and disciples of
The Jesus of suburbia
Land of make believe
And it don't believe in me
Land of make believe
And I don't believe
And I don't care!
I don't care!
I don't care!
I don't care!
I don't care!

[Part 4: Dearly beloved]

Dearly beloved are you listening?
I can't remember a word that you were saying
Are we demented or am I disturbed?
The space that's in between insane and insecure
Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?
Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed?
Nobody's perfect and I stand accused
For lack of a better word, and that's my best excuse!

[Part 5: Tales of another broken home]

To live and not to breathe
Is to die In tragedy
To run, to run away
To find what you believe
And I
Leave behind
This hurricane of ****ing lies
I lost my faith to this
This town that don't exist

So I run
I run away
To the light of masochist
And I leave behind
This hurricane of ****ing lies
And I walked this line
A million and one ****ing times
But not this time!

I don't feel any shame
I won't apologize

When there ain't nowhere you can go
Running away from pain
When you've been victimized
Tales from another broken home

You're leaving...
You're leaving...
You're leaving...
Ah you're leaving home...
Parachute for sale, like new! Never opened!
Guinness, black goes with everything.

Ink and Paper

[QUOTE=Maharlika]I'm such a fan of New Wave Music in the 80's. I'm trying to find songs by The Care (Flaming Sword), Modern English (Ink and Paper) and The Wild Swans (Whirlpool Heart) but so far no luck :(

Ink & Paper (Modern English)
-------------------------

well there it is
in black and white
no need to read between the lines
you made it clear
see you later
youre breaking off the chains that bind

i want to tell you
but Im drawing a blank

Ink and paper
not quite enough to make it clear
Ink and paper
those words keep ringing in my ear
Ink and paper
a broken heart in black and white

so many miles separate us
they come between us in the end
once upon a time you said forever
but this is now and that was then

i want to tell you
but Im drawing a blank

Ink and paper
i cant seem to put it down to my
Ink and paper
i cant find the words to write
Ink and paper
how can i make them change your mind

i want to tell you
but Im drawing a blank

Ink and paper

[color="YellowGreen"][font="Trebuchet MS"]Matisyahu: Aish Tamid
Live at Stubb's (2005), Shake off the Dust... Arise (2004),

The place lays phased like a warrior slayed
Engraved into the space with his sword still raised
Layers of charcoal sprayed through hallways
Praise relays off the walls echoing all ways

Dirt covered earth lays beneath my rib cage
Giving birth to overgrowth invading on to path ways
Burnt out trees cover streets where children once played
Sown seeds decay through sacred stepping stones in disarray
Where the alter used to be placed inter-changed for bloodstains
Sunrays illuminate the smoke filled haze
Trace of incense scents of sacrifice stayed

Chorus:
Aish tamid eternally
A fire burns continuously
Wondering where you been
Won't you come on home to me?

Flash back patches of grass growing wild in fact
Cracked walls burnt black like a kingdom sacked
Memories like artifacts attacked yet still intact
Melodies wrapped in glass and shatter with the impact

Air intermingling ringing with the singing
of songs once sung, hung, flung into the rafters
Catastrophe struck the sound stuck
Disaster plastered
The aftermath a blasted building once standing, like a starved man fasting
the skies expanding clouds passing, dust particles dancing,
in broken bars of light, streaming from a shaft, slashed into the ceiling,
Sshhhh, you could feel the ground breathing.

Chorus

Daughter of Zion is lying crying in the mist
Morning light slips in, shifting through the darkness
Like a morning wife reminisce having visions of her long gone prince
Memories drip rain drops tip towing emptiness
Intermixed with tears like fears left unfixed
Walls worn thin frozen fortress like dawn waiting for the sunrise of a day that got skipped
Like a life gone wrong wandering wilderness
Lovesick stripped abyss empty once luscious

Chorus

Paint the scene so you could see, the city's picking up speed
On a bench 14th street, taxi's streaming yellow streaks
Spears piercing through my ears, you could hear the traffic speak
Jack hammers drill smacking through the cracking concrete
Buildings filled with windowsills spilled tangled telephone wires
Signs sparking neon lights flash like wild fire
My insides rise I start to feel paralyzed
Let out a sigh-a melody blew by- like an ancient war cry
the way the sunlight hit the trees it really caught my eye,
glistening' listening' to the breeze dancing' through the leaves,
freeze, the city move's in slow motion like a dream

I'm left empty like the temple turned into a fox den
Bus fumes dripping spitting into city summer sun
Sifting through the ash dimly lit vision listening
To the hiss lifting off a nighttime ocean
Shim, shim, shimmering singing hair on my skin
Glim, glim. Glimmering, whispering where ya been

From amidst the darkness set sail with the softness
Breeze traveling across the seas arisen from with in Mt. Zion
Wind coming in picking up momentum
Cutting crisply through the thickness riding on a rhythm
A rollercoaster sizzling, twisting down the mountain
ripping rocket ship exploding like a fountain
overflowing spilling through the courtyards of Jerusalem
Uncovering debris lifting up the fallen arisen within
to reach the yiddin even in Manhattan
exposed menorah glowing in the shadows of destruction
trailblazing through affliction
brushing off the branches golden
standing strong flames
dancing like a lion roaring rising out of nothing[/font][/color]

Film classification warning PG

I'm not absolutely certain it's ok to post this lyric. But it is funny. It was written for a group which is trying to persuade americans to watch less tv. Apparently they didn't adopt it in the ad, though :D

[color="DimGray"]Joan of Arc

Now the flames they followed joan of arc
As she came riding through the dark;
No moon to keep her armour bright,
No man to get her through this very smoky night.
She said, I’m tired of the war,
I want the kind of work I had before,
A wedding dress or something white
To wear upon my swollen appetite.

Well, I’m glad to hear you talk this way,
You know I’ve watched you riding every day
And something in me yearns to win
Such a cold and lonesome heroine.
And who are you? she sternly spoke
To the one beneath the smoke.
Why, I’m fire, he replied,
And I love your solitude, I love your pride.

Then fire, make your body cold,
I’m going to give you mine to hold,
Saying this she climbed inside
To be his one, to be his only bride.
And deep into his fiery heart
He took the dust of joan of arc,
And high above the wedding guests
He hung the ashes of her wedding dress.

It was deep into his fiery heart
He took the dust of joan of arc,
And then she clearly understood
If he was fire, oh then she must be wood.
I saw her wince, I saw her cry,
I saw the glory in her eye.
Myself I long for love and light,
But must it come so cruel, and oh so bright?
