Post a Song

This is, quite possibly, the saddest song EVER recorded.

Thom Parrott - Aberfan Coal Tip Tragedy

The mining men of Wales are hardy, strong and bold,
And they tunnel in the earth and make it yield its coal.
But in the town of Aberfan, it's dearer now than gold,
For one generation, for the black rock, has been sold.
How many died in Aberfan
When the coal tip came rumbling down?
How many children will never grow old?
How many lives purchase how many pounds of coal?

The little school of Pantglas* lay where the mountain loomed,
And some two hundred children took their lessons in its rooms.
The day fall recess was to begin, they went to meet their doom,
Not knowing "the green hollow" would soon become their tomb.
Chorus.

It was just 9:00 AM when they opened up the door,
And in came the children, two hundred, maybe more,
For nobody knew what the mountain had in store.
The lucky ones were tardy, the others are no more.
Chorus.

"I played with my big dog, I played with my cat."
Signed "Paul, October 21." There's nothing after that.
For the mountain came down, and everyone was trapped,
And now there's only coal slag where little Paul once sat.
Chorus.

In eighteen hundred and seventy-four, the first pit shaft went down,
And they started piling mining waste on the slopes above the town.
Everybody knew that the practice was unsound
But for ninety-two years no better place was found.

The men of the National Coal Board said that they'd known from the first.
The coal tips they permitted were a worry and a curse.
But I've heard that kind of thing so many times and it always sounds rehearsed.
If the coal tip was a murderer, the Coal Board's crime was worse.

For the children all were pretty, the children all were fine,
But the children went to school in the shadow of the mine.
With the coal tip up above them, they were running out of time,
And they were buried alive by the Ministry of Mine.
How many died in Aberfan
When the coal tip came tumbling down.
How many children will never grow old.
How many lives purchase how many tons of coal.

In the event of something happening to me,
there is something I would like you all to see.
It's just a photograph of someone that I knew.

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
Do you know what it's like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

I keep straining my ears to hear a sound.
Maybe someone is digging underground,
or have they given up and all gone home to bed,
thinking those who once existed must be dead.

Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
Do you know what it's like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

i love this song...


2000 LIGHT YEARS FROM HOME
(Mick Jagger / Keith Richards) The Rolling Stones

Sun turnin' 'round with graceful motion
We're setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans
It's so very lonely, you're a hundred light years from home

Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part
It's so very lonely, you're six hundred light years from home
It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home
It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home

Bell flight fourteen you now can land
See you on Aldebaran.
Safe on the green desert sand
It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home
It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home

Somehow this CD (Glassjaw - Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Silence) doesn't have a parental advisory sticker (while Queens of the Stone Age somehow do). Read these 3 songs and see what I mean.

Glassjaw - Motel of the White Locust

Welcome to Hollywood, whore.
Wake the fuck up in Hollywood, whore.

My dance has passed.

Welcome to Hollywood, whore.
Wake the fuck up in Hollywood, whore.

Combine the throb within the head
with the rhythm fucking of the feet.
Say a novena for all those lost
and read the bloodstains on the sheets.
I've whored myself for less than this
and I've prayed to appear fed.
As I knelt on my pillow, God,
I clenched my fucking fists and banged my head.

Who could ever
Who the fuck could ever
take the place of me?

Now I kiss up to God with my fists
and I pray to keep my head
though I like your pretty eyes better blackened
and my fists all fucking red.
Through sickness and health
I've kissed up to God two years.
I've focused on the cameos made by the tiger
in the valley of the fucking locust.

Who could ever
Who the fuck could ever
Take the place of me?

Wipe it off your mouth.
Get up off your knees
and make me your God.

Who could ever
Who the fuck could ever

It's sexual debauchery,
you fucking cunt,
you fucking whore,
You cost what you're worth.

Followed by a boy like this.
Re-ignited by all your visits.
As long as your mouth is shut,
you'll still be fucking beautiful.

-------------------------------------

Glassjaw - Lovebites and Razorlines

Who you fucking now?

I use my slit wrist
to sign my name with blood
and when you can't compete with the Joneses
you gun 'em all down
(even the father).
You fucking whore.
Shut up and swallow my pride for me.
Move closer or drive farther.
I just suck on the end of this dick that cums lead,
but first I'm coming after you all.

It's ladies night at the bar
but she smokes a man's cigar.
I guess she's dying.
Oh well.
I don't give a fuck about your dignity.
That's the bastard in me.

I know a girl
who sells herself around
and I'm sure that one day
she'll sign autographs in your town.

You fucking whore, who you fucking now?

I use my slit wrist
to sign my name with blood
and when you can't compete with the Joneses
You gun 'em all down
(even the father).
You fucking whore.
Shut up and swallow my pride for me.
Move closer or drive farther.
I just suck on the end of this dick that cums lead,
but first I'm coming after you all.

Looking back into my diary
What makes me say those things?
What causes my laughter at another's disaster
It's the bastard in me.

I know a girl
who sells herself around
and I'm sure that one day
she'll sign autographs in your town.

You fucking whore

Who you fucking now?

I strain myself, I guess. I guess I fuck myself, I guess I guess.
You live in shit
and you will eat your own way out.
I am too fly and shy
like no other guy.

Too fly and shy just for you.
I'm to fly and shy just for you and what you are

I know a girl who sells herself around
and I'm sure that one day
she'll sign autographs in your town

You fucking whore,
you live in shit,
you fucking whore,
who you fucking now?

Open Wide - Meat Puppets

twenty-one little pink salamanders pass me by tonight
twenty-one little red tongues are flickering in my sight
amphibious thoughts are flowing with the salamanders showing
of the 'touch of evil' tinted black and white
open wide

seventeen fat ripe rats hold stacks of juniper pie aloft
thirty-four clever rat hands are juggling tarts on high
these rodents know the craving for a slice, a sliver, or shaving
no request for satisfaction is denied
open wide

Recruiting Sargeant
By Great Big Sea

Two recruiting sergeants came to the CLB,
for the sons of the merchants, to join the Blue Puttees
So all the hands enlisted, five hundred young men
Enlist you Newfoundlanders and come follow me

They crossed the broad Atlantic in the brave Florizel,
And on the sands of Suvla, they entered into hell
And on those bloody beaches, the first of them fell

Chorus
So it's over the mountains, and over the sea
Come brave Newfoundlanders and join the Blue Puttees
You'll fight in Flanders, and at Galipoli
Enlist you Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Then the call came from London, for the last July drive
To the trenches with the regiment, prepare yourselves to die
The roll call next morning, just a handful survived.
Enlist you Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Chorus

The stone men on Water Street still cry for the day
When the pride of the city went marching away
A thousand men slaughtered, to hear the King say
Enlist you Newfoundlanders and come follow me

Chorus x3


Its a true story, and a sad one at that. A large portion of Newfoundlands population was killed in World War One all for 'King and Country'. In a single battle, 800 Newfoundlanders went over the trench wall, but only 68 survived until the next morning. Entire families were devastated, and yet, few Canadians today can remember the Blue Puttee's.They were named a Royal Regiment before the war was even over. Makes me feel proud to be a Canadian.
Alas, Great Big Sea is capable of making this seem like a pretty upbeat song. They are also great at telling stories.

Metallica - Battery

Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay


Smashing through the boundaries
lunacy has found me
cannot stop the Battery
Pounding out aggression
turns into obsession
cannot kill the Battery


Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me


Battery


Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers
never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity


Smashing through the boundaries
lunacy has found me
cannot stop the Battery
Pounding out aggression
turns into obsession
cannot kill the Battery


Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me


Battery


Circle of Destruction, Hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, Dominating flurry
We create the Battery


Smashing through the boundaries
lunacy has found me
cannot stop the Battery
Pounding out aggression
turns into obsession
cannot kill the Battery


Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me


Battery

Frank Zappa. Waka/Jawaka,.....Your Mouth

Your mouth is your religion.
You put your faith in a hole like that? You put your trust and your belief
Above your jaw, and no relief
Have I found

I heard your story when you come home
You said you went to see your sister last night.
Well, you might lose a bunch of teeth
And a funeral wreath
While you'll be laying in the ground
All alone

So tell me, where are you coming from
With all those lines
As you stumble in the breakin' of the day.
Where are you comin' from, my shot gun say
Beacause he just might want to blow you away
'cause he just might want to blow you away

An evil woman can make ya cry
If you believe her every time she lies
Well you can be a big fool
If she makes you lose your cool, and so
I've got me some advice you should try

Just let her talk a little
Just let her talk a little more
Just.., let her talk a little more
And when she runs out of words
Just say the same thing I told ya before...

Tell me, where are you coming from
With all them lines?
As you stumble in at the breakin' of the day
Where are you coming from, my shot gun say
Because he just might want to blow you away
'cause he just might want to blow you away.

Radiohead - The Bends

Where do we go from here?
The words are coming out all weird
Where are you now, when I need you?
Alone on an aeroplane
Fall asleep on against the window pane
My blood will thicken

I need to wash myself again to hide all the dirt and pain
Cos I'd be scared that there's nothing underneath
But who are my real friends?
Have they all got the bends?
Am I really sinking this low?

My baby's got the bends, oh no
We don't have any real friends, no, no, no

Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

Where do we go from here?
The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear
And where are you?
They brought in the CIA, the tanks and the whole marines,
To blow me away, to blow me sky high

My baby's got the bends
We don't have any real friends

Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

I wanna live, breathe
I wanna be part of the human race
I wanna live, breathe
I wanna be part of the human race, race, race, race

Where do we go from here?
The words are coming out all weird
Where are you now when I need you?

I love this song but only mainly for the chorus:


Artist : Linkin Park
Song : Nobody's Listening
Album : Meteora



Coming at you
Coming at you
Coming at you

Yo, peep the style and the kids checking for it
The number one question is: how could you ignore it
And drop right back in the cut over basement tracks with rap stack
Got you backing this up like rewind that
We're just rolling with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop lyrics are life living
Not to be forgotten but still unforgiven
But in the meantime there are those who want to talk this and that
So I suppose that it gets to a point
Where feelings got to get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreading the dirt, it goes

Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening

I've got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Hand full of anger held in my chest
And everything left's a waste of time
I hate my rhymes but I hate everyone else's more
I'm riding on the back of this pressure
Guessing that it's better I can't keep myself together
Because all of this stress gave me something to write on
And the pain gave me something I could set my sights on
I'll never forget the blood, sweat, and tears
The uphill struggle over years
The fearing trash talking and the people it was to
And the people that started it just like you

Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening

I've got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Hand full of anger held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nothing to gain, everything to fear
Heart full of pain, head full of stress
Hand full of anger held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nothing to gain, everything to fear
Heart full of pain

Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening

I've got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Nobody's listening
Hand full of anger held in my chest
Nobody's listening
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nobody's listening
Nothing to gain, everything to fear
Nobody's listening

Coming at you
Coming at you
Coming at you
Coming at you from every side

i'm been listening to this song a bunch lately

Craig Morgan - Almost Home


He had plastic bags wrapped 'round his shoes.
He was covered with the Evening News.
Had a pair of old wool socks on his hands.
The bank sign was flashing "5 below",
It was freezing rain an' spittin' snow;
He was curled up behind some garbage cans.
I was afraid that he was dead:
I gave him a gentle shake.
When he opened up his eyes,
I said: "Old man, are you ok?"

He said: "I just climbed out of a cottonwood tree.
"I was runnin' from some honey bees.
"Drip dryin' in the summer breeze,
"After jumpin' into Calico Creek.
"I was walkin' down an old dirt road,
"Past a field of hay that had just been mowed.
"Man, I wish you'd just left me alone,
"'Cause I was almost home."

Then he said: "I w's just comin' 'round the barn,
"'Bout the time he grabbed my arm,
"When I heard Momma holler: 'Son, hurry up.'
"I was close enough for my own nose,
"To smell fresh cobbler on the stove,
"When I saw Daddy loadin' up the truck.
"Cane poles on the tailgate,
"Bobbers blowin' in the wind.
"Since July of '55,
"That's as close as I've been.

"Yeah, I just climbed out of a cottonwood tree.
"Well, I was runnin' from some honey bees.
"Drip dryin' in the summer breeze,
"After jumpin' into Calico Creek.
"An' I was walkin' down an old dirt road,
"Past a field of hay that had just been mowed.
"Man, I wish you'd just left me alone,
"I was almost home."

I said: "Old man you're gonna freeze to death,
"Let me drive you to the mission."
He said: "Boy, if you left me alone,
"Right now, I'd be fishin'."

"I just climbed out of a cottonwood tree.
"I was runnin' from some honey bees.
"An' drip dryin' in the summer breeze,
"After jumpin' in to Calico Creek.
"I was walkin' down an old dirt road,
"Past a field of hay that had just been mowed.
"Man, I wish you'd just left me alone,
"'Cause I was almost home." (Almost home).

"Man, I wish you'd just left me alone,
"I was almost home."

RAMBLE ON
Led Zeppelin


The leaves are falling all around
Time I was on my way
Thanks to you, I'm much obliged
For such a pleasant stay

But now it's time for me t' go
The autumn moon lights my way
But now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it's headed my way
Ah, sometimes I grow so tired
But I know I've got one thing I've got to do

Ramble on
Now's the time, the time is now
Sing my song
I'm going 'round the world
I got to find my girl
On my way
I've been this way ten years to the day
Ramble on
I got to find the queen of all my dreams

Got no time to spending grief
The time has come to be gone
And to' our health we drank a thousand times
It's time to ramble on

A-ramble on
Now's the time, the time is now
Sing my song
I'm going 'round the world
I got to find my girl
On my way
I've been this way ten years to the day
I got to ramble on
I got to find the queen of all my dreams

I ain't taking no ride

Mine's a tale that can't be told
My freedom I hold dear
How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air
'Twas in the darkest depths of Mordor
I met a girl so fair
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up
And slipped away with her, her
Her, her, her a-yeah
An' ain't nothing I can do, now
I guess I'll keep on

Rambling, I'm gonna shake
Sing my song, I'm gonna find my baby
I'm gonna ramble on
Sing my song, work my way, going 'round the world

19th Nervous Breakdown, by the Rolling Stones, whenever i'm super stressed it starts running through my head.

You're the kind of person
You meet at certain dismal dull affairs.
Center of a crowd, talking much too loud
Running up and down the stairs.
Well, it seems to me that you have seen too much in too few years.
And though you've tried you just can't hide
Your eyes are edged with tears.

You better stop
Look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.

When you were a child
You were treated kind
But you were never brought up right.
You were always spoiled with a thousand toys
But still you cried all night.
Your mother who neglected you
Owes a million dollars tax.
And your father's still perfecting ways of making ceiling wax.

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nilne-teenth nervous breakdown.

Oh, who's to blame, that girl's just insane.
Well nothing I do don't seem to work,
It only seems to make matters worse. Oh please.

You were still in school
When you had that fool
Who really messed your mind.
And after that you turned your back
On treating people kind.
On our first trip
I tried so hard to rearrange your mind.
But after while I realized you were disarranging mine.

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown

The Velvet Underground- Pale Blue Eyes

Sometimes I feel so happy,
Sometimes I feel so sad.
Sometimes I feel so happy,
But mostly you just make me mad.
Baby, you just make me mad.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Thought of you as my mountain top,
Thought of you as my peak.
Thought of you as everything,
I've had but couldn't keep.
I've had but couldn't keep.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
If I could make the world as pure and strange as what I see,
I'd put you in the mirror,
I put in front of me.
I put in front of me.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Skip a life completely.
Stuff it in a cup.
She said, Money is like us in time,
It lies, but can't stand up.
Down for you is up."
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
It was good what we did yesterday.
And I'd do it once again.
The fact that you are married,
Only proves, you're my best friend.
But it's truly, truly a sin.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

"Sweet Leaf," by Ozzy Osbourne

ALRIGHT NOW!!
Won't you listen?

When I first met you, didn't realize
I can't forget you, or your suprise
you introduced me to my mind
And left me wanting, you and your kind
Oh yeah!

I love you, Oh you know it

My life was empty, forever on a down
Until you took me, showed me around
My life is free now, my life is clear
I love you sweet leaf, though you can't hear
Oh yeah!

Come on now, try it out

Straight people don't know, what you're about
They put you down and shut you out
you've given to me a new belief
and soon the world will love you sweet leaf
Oh yeah baby!

Deep insinde these sleeping shallows
Far away where no one goes, now
Take my place in golden space
Of TV star that no one knows, now
Deep, deep mystery is talking to me
She's a giver of constant animation
All around and ready to make a new formation
You're the reason I'm in this world


I don't believe in everything I see
Rivers Of Avalon
Your supernatural enegy
Part of my scenery
What I belong to is your ecstasy
Rivers Of Avalon
Your faith unwavering is key


The clone of my own loneliness has got to fade
What am I known to?
Little garland and in your starling
Loving waves that I've succumbed to
Deep, deep mystery is talking to me
She's a giver of constant adulation
All around and ready to make a new formation
You're the reason I'm in this world


I don't believe in everything I see
Rivers Of Avalon
Your supernatural enegy
Part of my scenery
What I belong to is your ecstasy
Rivers Of Avalon
Your faith unwavering is key
What do you see in me?


Deep, deep mystery is talking to me
She's a giver of constant animation
All around and ready to make a new formation
You're the reason I'm in this world

I don't believe in everything I see

I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide

Well I was rollin' down the road in some cold blue steel,
I had a bluesman in the back, and a beautician at the wheel.
We're going downtown in the middle of the night
We was laughing and I'm jokin' and we feelin' alright.
Oh I'm bad, I'm nationwide.
Yes I'm bad, I'm nationwide.

Easin' down the highway in a new Cadillac,
I had a fine fox in front, I had three more in the back.
They sportin' short dresses, wearin' spike-heeled shoes,
They smokin' Lucky Strikes, wearing nylon too.
Welcome back, we're nationwide.
Yeah we bad, we're nationwide.

Well I was movin' down the road in my V-8 Ford,
I had a shine on my boots, I had my sideburns lowered.
With my New York brim and my gold tooth displayed,
Nobody give me trouble cause they know I got it made.
I'm bad, I'm nationwide.
Girl I'm bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, I'm nationwide.

Gorgeous song, I love her voice, and 12 Stones kicks ass!

Bring Me To Life
Evanescence

How can you see into my eyes
like open doors.
Leading you down into my core
where I've become so numb.
Without a soul
my spirit's sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home.

(Wake me up.
Wake me up inside.
I can't wake up.
Wake me up inside.
Save me.
Call my name and save me from the dark.
Wake me up.
Bid my blood to run.
I can't wake up.
Before I come undone.
Save me.
Save me from the nothing I've become.)

Now that I know what I'm without
you can't just leave me.
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life.

[Chorus]

Bring me to life.
I've been living a lie
There's nothing inside.
Bring me to life.

Frozen inside without your touch,
without your love, darling.
Only you are the life among the dead.

All of this sight
I can't believe I couldn't see
Kept in the dark
but you were there in front of me

I've been sleeping a 1000 years it seems.
I've got to open my eyes to everything.

Without a thought
Without a voice
Without a soul

Don't let me die here
There must be something wrong.
Bring me to life.

[Chorus]

Bring me to life.
I've been living a lie
There's nothing inside.

Bring me to life

Grace - Jeff Buckley

There's the moon asking to stay
Long enough for the clouds to fly me away
Well it's my time coming, I'm not afraid to die

My fading voice sings of love, but she cries to the clicking of time,
Oh, time. Wait in the fire...
And she weeps on my arm
Walking to the bright lights in sorrow
Oh drink a bit of wine we both might go tomorrow
Oh my love...
And the rain is falling and I believe my time has come
It reminds me of the pain I might leave behind... Wait in the fire
And I feel them drown my name
So easy to know and forget with this kiss
I'm not afraid to go but it goes so slow...

Four Dead In Ohio

Tin soldiers and Nixon's comin'.
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drummin'.
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it.
Soldiers are gunning us down.
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground?
How can you run when you know?

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na.

Gotta get down to it.
Soldiers are cutting us down.
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her and
Found her dead on the ground?
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon's comin'.
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drummin'.
Four dead in Ohio.

Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.
Four dead in Ohio.

The Velvet Underground - Oh Sweet Nuthin'!

Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
He knocked the shirt right of his back
He ain't got nothing at all
And say a word for Ginger Brown
He walks with his head down to the ground
Took the shoes right off his feet
And threw the poor boy right out in the street
And this is what he said:
Oh, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Say a word for P??? M???
She can't tell the night from the day
They threw her out in the street
Just like a cat she landed on her feet
And say a word for ??? ???
She ain't got nothing at all
With every day she falls in love
And every night she falls
And when she does she says:
Oh, sweet nuthin'
You know She ain't got nothing at all
[Woe, oh] sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh, let me hear you
(guitar solo)
Oh, say a word, say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all, not a thing
And not a shirt, shirt on his back
No, he ain't got nothing at all
And say a word for Ginger
He walks with his head to the ground
He took the shoes, took the shoes from his feet, from his feet
And threw the poor boy out into the street
And then he said:
Oh, sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got, she ain't got, she ain't got nothing at all
Sweet sweet sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got
Sweet Sweet nothing ...
Oh, let me hear you
(guitar solo)
She ain't got nothing at all ...

This song gets a lot of people all up in arms...

Slayer - Disciple

Drones since the dawn of time
Compelled to live your sheltered lives
Not once has anyone ever seen
Such a rise of pure hypocracy
I'll instigate I'll free your mind
I'll show you what I've known all this time

God Hates Us All, God Hates Us All
You know it's true God hates this place
You know it's true he hates this race

Homicide-Suicide
Hate heals, you should try it sometime
Strive for Peace with acts of war
The beauty of death we all adore
I have no faith distracting me
I know why your prayers will never be answered

God Hates Us All; God Hates Us All
He Fuckin' hates me

Pessimist, Terrorist targeting the next mark
Global chaos feeding on hysteria
Cut throat, slit your wrist, shoot you in the back fair game
Drug abuse, self abuse searching for the next high
Sounds a lot like hell is spreading all the time
I'm waiting for the day the whole world fucking dies

I never said I wanted to be God's disciple
I'll never be the one to blindly follow

Man made virus infecting the world
Self-destruct human time bomb
What if there is no God would you think the fuckin' same
Wasting your life in a leap of blind faith
Wake the fuck up can't ignore what I say
I got my own philosophy

I hate everyone equally
You can't tear that out of me
No segregation -separation
Just me in my world of enemies

I never said I wanted to be God's disciple
I'll never be the one to blindly follow
I'll never be the one to bear the cross-disciple

I reject this fuckin' race
I despise this fuckin' place

"Red Rag Top"

[Verse 1:]

I was twenty and she was eighteen,
we were just as wild as we were green, in the ways of the world
she picked me up in that red rag top,
we were free of the folks and hiding from the cops,
on a summer night runnin' all the red lights
we parked way out in a clearin'in a grove and the night
was hot as a coal burnin' stove,
we were cookin' the gas we were had to last

In the back of that red rag top
She said please don't stop

[Verse 2:]

Well the very first time her mother met me,
her green eyed girl was a mother to be for 2 weeks
I was out of a job and she was in school,
life was fast and the world was cruel
We were young and wild, we decided not to have a child
So we did what we did and we tried to forget
and we swore up and down there would be no regrets
in the morning light,
but on the way home that night

On the back of that red rag top
She said please don't stop..
lovin' me

[Verse 3:]
We took one more trip around the sun,
It was all make believe in the end,
No I can't say where she is today,
I can't remember who I was, back then
Well you do what you do and you pay for your sins,
and there's no such thing as what might've
been, that's a waste of time; drive you outta your mind
I was stopped at a red light just yesterday beside a young girl
in a cabriolet and her eyes
were green
I was in an old scene

I was back in that red rag top
On the day she stopped
Loving me
I was back in that red rag top
On the day she stopped
Loving me


God i love that song.

Pearl Necklace



She's really upset with me again,
I didn't give her what she likes.
I don't know what to tell her,
Don't know what to say.
Everything got funky last night.

She was really bombed,
And I was really blown away,
Until I asked her what she wanted,
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

She gets a charge out of bein' so weird,
Digs gettin' downright strange.
But I can keep a handle on anything,
Just this side of deranged.

She was gettin' bombed,
And I was gettin' blown away,
And she held it in her hand
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

She is so tough, as pure as the driven slush.
And that's not jewelry she's talkin' 'bout,
It really don't cost that much.

She was gettin' bombed,
And I was gettin' blown away,
And she took it in her hand,
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

Hey god, why are you doing this to me?
Am I not living up to what I'm supposed to be?
Why am I seething with this animosity?
Hey God, I think you owe me a great big apology

Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie

Hey God, I really don't know what you mean
Seems like salvation comes only in our dreams
I feel my hatred grow all the more extreme
Hey God, Can this world really be as sad as it seems?

Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie

Don't take it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't tear it, don't tear it, don't tear it, don't tear it, don't

Hey God, there's nothing left for me to hide
I lost my ignorance, security and pride
I'm all alone in the world you must despise
Hey God, I believed your promises, your promises and lies!

Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie

You made me throw it all away
My morals left to decay
How many you betray
You've taken everything

Terrible lie

My head is filled with disease
My skin is begging you please
I'm on my hands and knees
I want so much to believe

I give you everything..
my sweet everything..

I need someone to hold on to
I need someone, I need someone
I need someone to hold on to

Possibly my favorite, and in my opinion, the best punk song, ever written.. ever


Dead Kennedys - "Holiday In Cambodia"

So you been to school for a year or two
And you know you've seen it all
In daddy's car thinkin' you'll go far
Back east your type don't crawl
Play ethnicky jazz to parade your snazz
On your five grand stereo
Braggin that you know how the niggers feel cold
And the slums got so much soul

It's time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
Brace yourself, my dear

It's a holiday in Cambodia
It's tough kid, but it's life
It's a holiday in Cambodia
Don't forget to pack a wife

Your a star-belly sneech you suck like a leech
You want everyone to act like you
Kiss ass while you bitch so you can get rich
But your boss gets richer on you
Well you'll work harder with a gun in your back
For a bowl of rice a day
Slave for soldiers til you starve
Then your head skewered on a stake
Now you can go where people are one
Now you can go where they get things done
What you need my son:

Is a holiday in Cambodia
Where people dress in black
A holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll kiss ass or crack

Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot [etc.]

And it's a holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll do what you're told
A holiday in Cambodia
Where the slums got so much soul

I Fought the Law (and I Won)
Drinkin' beer in the hot sun
I fought the law and I won

I needed sex and I got mine
I fought the law and I won

The law don't mean shit if you've got the right friends
That's how the country's run
Twinkies are the best friend I've ever had
I fought the law
And I won

I blew George & Harvey's brains out with my six-gun
I fought the law and I won

Gonna write my book and make a million
I fought the law and I won

I'm the new folk hero of the Ku Klux Klan
My cop friends think that's fine
You can get away with murder if you've got a badge
I fought the law
And I won
I am the law
So I won

Boys Night Out - "Victor Versus The Victim"

this is the sound of tooth against bone against cheering crowds and broken homes. this is the end of my rope, so bite down...tell me how this concrete tastes and tell me for the last time that you're sorry so i can laugh out loud as i watch you struggle; broken, bloody and barely breathing. the truth is, there's been an autumn in me and it's been that way since may. yeah, i've hoped forever...diminishing myself with my unconscious. this is the end of the line...and my shoes, ripped and ruined from running, have finally found their final resting place at the base of your skull...and once again someone's left to clean up your mess.

Lets Roll

I know I said I love you,
I know you know it's true,
I got to put the phone down,
And do what we gotta do.

One's standing in the aisle way,
Two more at the door,
We got to get inside there,
Before they kill some more.

Time is runnin' out, let's roll.
Time is runnin' out, let's roll.

No time for indecision,
We got to make a move,
I hope that we're forgiven,
For what we gotta do.

How this all got started,
I'll never understand,
I hope someone can fly this thing,
Get us back to land.

Time is runnin' out, let's roll.
Time is runnin' out, let's roll.

No one has the answers,
But one thing is true,
You got to turn on evil,
When it's comin' after you.

You got to face it down,
And when it tries to hide,
You got to go in after it,
And never be denied.

Time is runnin' out, let's roll.

Let's roll for freedom,
Let's roll for love,
Goin' after Satan,
On the wings of a dove.

Let's roll for justice,
Let's roll for truth,
Let's not let our children,
Grow up fearful in their youth.

Time is runnin' out, let's roll.
Time is runnin' out, let's roll.
Time is runnin' out, let's roll.

Baby I Love Your Way

Shadows grow so long before my eyes
And they're moving across the page
Suddenly the day turns into night
Far away from the city
But don't hesitate 'cuz your love won't wait
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day
Moon appears to shine and light the sky
With the help of some fireflies
I wonder how they have the power to shine, shine, shine
I can see them under the pine
But don't hesitate'cuz your love won't wait
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day
But don't hesitate'cuz your love won't wait
I can see the sunset in your eyes
Brown and grey and blue besides
Clouds are stalking islands in the sun
I wish I could buy one out of season
But don't hesitate'cuz your love won't wait
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day
Ooh baby I love your way (everyday)
Wanna tell you I love your way
Wanna be with you night and day

BLINDED BY THE LIGHT
(Bruce Springsteen)
Manfred Mann's Earth Band


Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground
Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands
And some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand
And now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not whispers daddy's within earshot save the buckshot turn up the band

And she was blinded by the light. Cut loose like a deuce
Another runner in the night. Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tight, but she'll make it alright

Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
He says: "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in its funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner all alone watchin' the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone to remind him of the feeling of romance

Yeah he was blinded by the light. Cut loose like a deuce
Another runner in the night. Blinded by the light
He got down but she never got tight, but he's gonna make it tonight

Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes
She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong if you play that song with the funky break
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe to go outside
And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride

Oh, some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier
Yes and Scotland Yard was trying hard, they sent some dude with a calling card, he
said, do what you like, but don't do it here
Well I jumped up, spit in the air, turned around, asked wich was the way back home
He said take a right at the light, keep going straight until night, and then boy you're on your own

And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune
Yes, and the avatar said blow the bar but first remove the cookie jar,
we're gonna teach those boys to laugh too soon
And some kidnapped handicap was complaining that he caught the clap from some
mousetrap he bought last night
Well I unsnapped his skull cap and between his ears I saw a gap but he'd figured he'd be all right

He was just blinded by the light. Cut loose like a deuce
Another runner in the night. Blinded by the light
Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Oh but mama that's where the fun is

Saddest song by someone you never heard of. If I die before I get old, I want someone to perform it at my funeral:

"Adam McCarthy" - Ralph Covert


Lit a cigarette and smiled, alone in the kitchen
It's all been more trouble than it's worth for Adam McCarthy
Made a long-distance call, talked for an hour
Dying at 33...Adam McCarthy

And what about growing old, getting drunk, getting mad at your lover?
What about making time for yourself?
What have I done to deserve watching a friend waste away?
And what about waking up, feeling good, acting like you're immortal?
What about having a moment to lose?
And what about having a place in the world?

The doctor says "Hope, hope is the answer."
But he means that he's run out of tricks for Adam McCarthy

So I sat by his bed while he showed me his pictures
The candles, the cake, and the two sunken eyes of Adam McCarthy

And what about growing old, getting drunk, getting mad at your lover?
What about making time for yourself?
What have I done to deserve watching a friend waste away?
And what about waking up, feeling good, acting like you're immortal?
What about having a moment to lose?
And what about having a place in the world?

And I wanted to cry
But I could see he was hungry for laughter
And I wanted to say that I understood
But how can you lie to a friend?

He smiled and said "Do you want to get high?
It's not like it's gonna kill me.
I'm almost as dead as I'll get." said Adam McCarthy

So we stared into space, lost in our own worlds
And I said I'd come back when I could,
but I never did make it

And what about growing old, getting drunk, getting mad at your lover?
What about making time for yourself?
What have I done to deserve watching a friend waste away?
And what about waking up, feeling good, acting like you're immortal?
What about having a moment to lose?
And what about having a place in the world?
What about Adam McCarthy?

One of my Favorite Songs ever....

You're All I Need...Motley Crew


The blade of my knife
Faced away from your heart
Those last few nights
It turned and sliced you apart
This love that I tell
Now feels lonely as hell
From this padded prison cell

So many times I said
You'd only be mine
I gave my blood and my tears
And loved you cyanide
When you took my lips
I took your breath
Sometimes love's better off dead

You're all I need, make you only mine
I loved you so I set you free
I had to take your life
You're all I need, you're all I need
And I loved you but you didn't love me Laid out cold
Now we're both alone
But killing you helped me keep you home
I guess it was bad
Cause love can be sad
But we finally made the news

Tied up smiling
I thought you were happy
Never opened your eyes
I thought you were napping
I got so much to learn
About love in this world
But we finally made the news

You're all I need, make you only mine
I loved you so, so I put you to sleep.

Crazy
 
White Punks On Dope
the tubes


Teenage had a race for the night time
Spent my cash on every high I could find
Wasted time in every school in L.A.
Getting loose, I didn't care what the kids say

We're white punks on dope
Mom & Dad moved to Hollywood
Hang myself when I get enough rope
Can't clean up, though I know I should
White punks on dope
White punks on dope

Other dudes are living in the ghetto
But born in Pacific Heights don't seem much betto

We're white punks on dope
Mom & Dad live in Hollywood
Hang myself when I get enough rope
I can't clean up, though I know I should
White punks on dope
White punks on dope

I go crazy 'cause my folks are so fucking rich
Have to score when I get that rich white punk itch
Sounds real classy, living in a chateau
So lonely, all the other kids will never know

We're white punks on dope
Mom & Dad live in Hollywood
Hang myself when I get enough rope
Can't clean up, though I know I should
White punks on dope
White punks on dope

Horse latitudes
The Doors

When the still sea conspires an armor
And her sullen and aborted
Currents breed tiny monsters
True sailing is dead
Awkward instant
And the first animal is jettisoned
Legs furiously pumping
Their stiff green gallop
And heads bob up
Poise
Delicate
Pause
Consent
In mute nostril agony
Carefully refined
And sealed over

Pink floyd
"Childhood's End" off of the album Obscured By Clouds

You shout in your sleep.
Perhaps the price is just too stepp.
Is your conscience at rest if once put to the test?
You awake with a start to just the beating of your heart.
Just one man beneath the sky,
Just two ears, just two eyes.
You set sail across the sea of longpast thoughts and memories.
Childhood's end,
Your fantasies merge with harsh realities.
And then as the sail is hoist,
You find your eyes are growing moist.
All the fears never voiced say you have to make your final choice.
Who are you and who am I to say we know the reason why?
Some are born;
Some men die beneath one infinite sky.
There'll be war, there'll be peace.
But everything one day will cease.
All the iron turned to rust;
All the proud men turned to dust.
And so all things, time will mend.
So this song will end.

Pink Floyd rules thats a great song!

Michelle Branch - Something to Sleep to


She's his yellow brick road
Leading him on
And letting him go as far as she lets him go
Going down to nowhere
She puts on her make-up
The same way she did yesterday
Hoping everything's the same
But everything has changed


In my mind
Everything we did was right
Open your eyes, I'll still be by your side
How could I ever have been so blind?
You give me something to sleep to at night


He wakes up to the sound
So scared that she's leaving
He wishes she were still asleep next to him
Hoping she will change


You give me something to sleep to
And all I know is
You give me something to dream to when I'm all alone and blue
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now

Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now

Thunderstruck

Thunder, Thunder
Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thunder
Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thunder

I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track (thunder)
I looked round
And I knew there was no turning back (thunder)
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do (thunder)
And I knew
There was no help from you (thunder)

Sound of the drums
Beating in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
You've been - thunderstruck

Went down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the town
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

Now we're shaking at the knees
Could I come again please?
Yeah the ladies were too kind
You've been - thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck, thunderstruck

Now we're shaking at the knees
Could I come again please?

(solo)

Thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck, thunderstruck

Said yeah, it's alright
We're doing fine
Yeah, it's alright
We're doing fine
(So fine)

Thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Thunderstruck
Thunderstruck
Yeah, thunderstruck
Thunderstruck
Thunderstruck
Thunderstruck
You've been thunderstruck
