Everything About You - Ugly Kid Joe




I, hate the rain and sunny weather,
And I, I hate the beach and mountains too, boo hoo
And I don't like a thing about the city, no, no
And I, I, I, hate the countryside too!

And I, hate everything about you!
... everything about you!

And I, don't like a thing about your mother,
And I, I hate your daddy's guts too, boo hoo
And I, don't like a thing about your sister, no, no
Cause I, I, I, think sex is overrated too.

And I, get sick when I'm around,
I, can't stand to be around,
I, hate everything about you!
Everything about you,
Everything about you,
Everything about you!

Some say I got a bad attitude,
But that don't change the way I feel about you,
And if you think this thought might bring me down,
Look again cause I ain't wearin' no frown!

I don't really care about your sister
Forget the little bitch cause I already kissed her

One thing that I did to your lady
I put her on the bed and she didn't even say maybe
I know you know everybody knows
The way it comes, the way it's gonna go
You think it's sad,
And that's too bad,
Cause I'm havin' a ball hatin'
Every little thing about you!

Everything about you, everything about...
I, get sick when I'm around...
I, can't stand to be around...
I, hate everything about...

you!

So Fine - Guns N Roses



How could she look so fine
How could it be she might be mine
How could she be so cool
I've been taken for a fool so many times

It's a story of a man
Who works as hard as he can
Just to be a man who stands on his own
But the book always burns
As the story takes it turn
An leaves a broken man

How could she be so cool
How could she be so fine
I owe a favor to a friend
My friends they always come through for me
Yeah

It's a story of a man
Who works as hard as he can
Just to be a man who stands on his own
But the book always burns
As the story takes it turn
An leaves a broken man

If you could only live my life
You could see the difference you make to me
To me

I'd look right up at night
And all I'd see was darkness
Now I see the stars alright
I wanna reach right up and grab one for you
When the lights went down in your house
Yeah that made me happy
The sweat I make for you
Yeah...
I think you know where that comes from

Well I'd look right up at night
And all I'd see was darkness
Now I see the stars alright
I wanna reach right up and grab one for you
When the lights went down in your house
Yeah that made me happy
The sweat I make for you
I think you know where that comes from

How could she look so good(So good)
How could she be so fine
How could she be so cool
How could it be she might be mine

Space-Dye Vest - Dream Theater



Falling through pages of Martens on angels
Feeling my heart pull west
I saw the future dressed as a stranger
love in a space-dye vest

Love is an act of blood and I'm bleeding
a pool in the shape of a heart
Beauty projection in the reflection
Always the worst way to start

"But he's the sort who can't know
anyone intimately, least of all a woman.
He doesn't know what a woman is. He wants you for a possession,
something to look at like a painting or an ivory box.
Something to own and to display. He doesn't want you to be real,
or to think or to live. He doesn't love you, but I love you.
I want you to have your own thoughts and ideas and feelings,
even when I hold you in my arms.
It's our last chance... It's our last chance..."

Now that you're gone I'm trying to take it
Learning to swallow the rage
Found a new girl I think we can make it
as long as she stays on the page

This is not how I want it to end
And I'll never be open again

"...I was gonna move out...ummm...get,
get a job, get my own place, ummm,
but... I go into the mall where I
want to work and they tell me, I'm,
I was too young..."

"Some people, gave advice before,
about facing the facts, about facing reality.
And this is, this without a doubt,
is his biggest challenge ever. He's going to have to face it.
You're gonna have to try, he's gonna to have to try and,
uh, and, and, and get some help here.
I mean no one can say they know how he feels."

"That, so they say that, in ya know
like, Houston or something,
you'd say it's a hundred and eighty degrees,
but it's a dry heat. In Houston they say that?
Oh, maybe not. I'm all mixed up.
Dry until they hit the swimming pool."

"...I get up with the sun... Listen.
You have your own room to sleep in,
I don't care what you do. I don't care when.
That door gets locked, that door gets locked at night by nine o'clock.
If you're not in this house by nine o'clock,
then you'd better find some place to sleep.
Because you're not going to be a bum in this house.
Supper is ready..."

There's no one to take my blame
if they wanted to
There's nothing to keep me sane
and it's all the same to you
There's nowhere to set my aim
so I'm everywhere
Never come near me again
do you really think I need you

I'll never be open again, I could never be open again.
I'll never be open again, I could never be open again.

And I'll smile and I'll learn to pretend
And I'll never be open again
And I'll have no more dreams to defend
And I'll never be open again

Cheap Thrills - Frank Zappa



Darling, darling, please hear my plea
God only knows what your loving does to me

Cheap thrills in the back of my car
Cheap thrills, how fine they are
Cheap thrills up and down my spine
I need it, I need it, 'cause it feels so fine, now

Cheap thrills all over the seat
Cheap thrills, your kind of lovin' can't be beat
Cheap thrills up and down my spine
I need it, I need it, 'cause it feels so fine, now

Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills

Cheap thrills, I can't wait another day
Cheap thrills, you gotta try to sneak away
Cheap thrills up and down my spine
I need it, I need it, 'cause it feels so fine

Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills

Cheap thrills set fire to my soul
Cheap thrills, like a story untold about
Cheap thrills up and down my spine
I need it, I need it, 'cause it feels so fine

Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills

Cheap thrills in the back of my car
Cheap thrills, how fine they are
Cheap thrills up and down my spine
I need it, I need it, 'cause it feels so fine

Cheap thrills all over the seat
Cheap thrills, your kind of lovin' can't be beat
Cheap thrills up and down my spine
I need it, I need it, 'cause it feels so fine

Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills
Cheap thrills

Lost In You - Rod Stewart



Hey baby
you been on my mind tonight

I'm so lonely
I just had to sit down and write.
I spent all yesterday
trying to figure out what I'm gonna say

A letter from my heart
is so hard to start, baby.
How's your momma?
How's the weather?
How's that son of mine?

Hey baby
been a long time since we made love

I'm stone cold
the bed's hard and the work is tough.
I'm never gonna leave you again
this job ain't worth the pain
No money in the world
ain't worth being away from you.

Ooh baby
I don't sleep without you by my side

listen:
I'm in love with you woman
it's a common known natural fact
And I've found what I'm looking for
but so much more than that.
I'm lost in you
I'm lost in you

I'm lost in you
I'm lost in you.

Hey baby
you don't know what you've done for me
I'm so happy as any man can deserve to be.
I was living in a life of sin
God knows what a mess I was in
So glad you found me
I ain't getting any younger.

Hey baby
I just hope it ain't all a dream!

I'm in love with you woman
It's a common known natural fact
And I've found what I'm looking for
but so much more than that.
I'm lost in you
I'm lost in you

I'm lost in you
I'm lost in you.

- I miss you, baby.
- I miss you, too.

I miss your laughing eyes
I miss our baby crying
I want to lay you out
and kiss you all over.

I'm coming home real soon
Be ready 'cause when I do
I'm gonna make love to you
like fifteen men!

I'm lost in you and I love it!
I'm lost in you and I love it!

I'm lost in
I'm lost in
I'm lost in you.

I Would Do Anything For Love - Meat Loaf



And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'll never lie to you and that's a fact

But I'll never forget the way you feel right now--
Oh no--no way--
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I won't do that
Anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all
and these are the days that never end

Maybe I'm crazy
But it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me
No one else can save me but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long as your dreams are comming true--
You better believe it!--

That I would to anything for love
And I'll be there until the final act--
I would do anything for love!
And I'll take a vow and seal a pact--

But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way--
Tonight--
I would do anything for love!
But I won't do that
I won't do that...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of
But I just won't do that...

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock 'N Roll

Maybe I'm lonely
And that's all I'm qualified to be
There's just one and only
The one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true--
You better believe it--!

That I would do anything for love!
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love!
And there'll never be no turning back--

But I'll never do it better than I do it with you
So long--
So long--
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I just won't do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of
But I won't do that...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you
Every night of my life--
No way--

I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
I won't do that!

Girl:
Will you raise me up?
Will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Boy:
I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl:
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will ya hose me down with holy water, if I get to hot?
Will ya take me to places I've never known?

Boy:
I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl:
After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude
And a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

Boy:
I won't do that!
I won't do that!

Girl:
I know the territory I've been around
it will all turn to dust
and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around

Boy:
I won't do that!
No, I won't do that!

...anything for love
I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Snow Cherries From France - Tori Amos

I knew a boy who would
Not share his bike
Oh but he let me go sailing
I swore that I
Could survive any storm
Oh then he let me go

"Can you launch rockets from here?"
Boy I've done it for years
Right over my head
And when I promised my hand
He promised me back
Snow Cherries from France
All that summer
We traveled the world
Never leaving his own back garden
Girls I didn't know
Just what it could be
Oh but he let me go sailing

You question me
"Can you ride anything?"
Lord do you mean like your mood swings
Invaders and Traders with
The best intentions
May convince you to go
"They look like pirates from here"
Boy I've been one for years
Just keeping my head
And when I promised my hand
You promised me back
Snow Cherries from France

All that summer
We traveled the world
Never leaving his own back garden
Girls I didn't know
Just what it could be
Oh but he let me go sailing

And then one day he said
"Girl it's been nice,
Oh but I have to go sailing"
With cinnamon lips
That did not match his eyes
Oh then he let me go

Liquid Eternity - Ayreon



[Jonas Renkse:]
Once a world, endless and free, horizons unbroken
Now a world of bounded frontiers, the elders have spoken
(our home)


[Daniel Gildenlow:]
Once a world, eternal and blue, floating, escaping
Now a world that's blinding my view, shadows shaping
(alone)


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Bob Catley:]
Once a world of fear and dismay of fleeing and hiding
Now a world that's peaceful and safe, so caring and providing,
our home...


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Tom Englund:]
Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had?
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead?
Would you prefer to live the life we've learned to dread?
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead?

[Jonas Renkse:] Our home

[Jorn Lande:] I'm losing my reason to live, the essence of life
[Floor Jansen:] But the system's got so much to give or would you rather die?
[Jorn Lande:] I'm losing my pride and my joy, my will to believe
[Floor Jansen:] Why would you come back and destroy all we have achieved?


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Tom Englund:]
Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had?
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead?
Would you prefer to live the life we've loved to play?
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead?


[Magali Luyten:]
Liquid eternity crosses through our veins
Liquid eternity nourishes our brains
Liquid eternity, a world that does not live
Liquid eternity, a life that does not yield


[Tom Englund:]
Would you prefer the pain and suffering we had?
Would you prefer to be in peril, even dead?
Would you prefer to live the life we've learned to dread?
Would you prefer to live a mortal life instead?
[Jonas Renkse:] Our home

Sober - Tool



There's a shadow just behind me,
shrouding every step I take.
Making every promise empty,
pointing every finger at me.
Waiting like a stalking butler,
who upon the finger rests.
Murder now the path of must we,
just because the son has come.

Mother Mary, won't you whisper
something but the past and done.

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can't we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave.
I will work to elevate you,
just enough to bring you down.

Mother Mary, won't you whisper
something but the past is done.

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can't we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave.
Trust me. trust me. trust me. trust me. trust me.

Why can't we not be sober.
I just want to start things over.
Why can't we sleep forever.
I just want to start this over.

I want what I want...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...

Comfortable Liar - Chevelle



Broad, is this sea
The salt, enters the wounds
My take, on you is simple
So heal, your fear
To heal, your fear
Time, spent wading off shore
The calm, before the storm
My take, from you is simple
So heal, your fear
To heal, your fear
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
You're such a comfortable liar
So calm
Cause I said wrong
You comfortable liar
You comfortable liar
You comfortable liar
You comfortable liar
Liar

This Love - Pantera



If ever words were spoken
Painful and untrue
I said I loved but I lied
In my life
All I wanted
Was the keeping
Of someone like you
As it turns out
Deeper within me
Love was twisted and pointed at you

Never ending pain, it's a waste of f@$ckin' time!

You keep this love, thing, child, toy
You keep this love, fist, scar, break
You keep this love

I'd been the tempting one
Stole her from herself
This gift in pain
Her pain was life
And sometimes I feel so sorry
I regret this the hurting of you
But you make me so unhappy
I'd take my life and leave love with you

I'd kill myself for you, I'd kill you for myself --

You keep this love, thing, child, toy
You keep this love, fist, scar, break
You keep this love

No more head trips

Man of Sorrows - Bruce Dickinson



Here, in a church, a small boy is kneeling
He prays to a God he does not know, he cannot feel
All of his sins of childhood he will remember
He will not cry, tears he will not cry

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?

Vision of a new world from the ashes of the old
do what thou wilt!, he screams from his cursed soul
A tortured seer, a prophet of our emptiness
Wondering why, wondering why...

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
(I wont see your face)
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?

A man of sorrows, racked
With thoughts that dare not speak their name
Trapped inside a body, made to feel only guilt and shame
His anger all his life - i hate myself!, he cried
do what thou wilt!
do what thou wilt!, he cried

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
(I wont see your face)
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
(left without a trace)
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?

Man of sorrows, I wont see your face
(I wont see your face)
Man of sorrows, you left without a trace
(left without a trace)
A small boy wonders, what was it all about?
Is your journey over - has it just begun?
Has it just begun?

The Sound of Muzak - Porcupine Tree



Hear the sound of music
Drifting in the aisles
Elevator prozac
Stretching on for miles

The music of the future
Will not entertain
It's only meant to repress
And neutralize your brain

Soul gets squeezed out
Edges get blunt
Demographic
Gives what you want

One of the wonders of the world is going down
It's going down I know
It's one of the blunders of the world that no-one cares
No-one cares enough

Now the sound of music
Comes in silver pills
Engineered to suit you
Building cheaper thrills

The music of rebellion
Makes you wanna rage
But it's made by millionaires
Who are nearly twice your age

Soul gets squeezed out
Edges get blunt
Demographic
Gives what you want

One of the wonders of the world is going down
It's going down I know
It's one of the blunders of the world that no-one cares
No-one cares enough

In The Arms of Sleep - The Smashing Pumpkins



Sleep will not come to this tired body now
Peace will not come to this lonely heart
There are some things I'll live without
But I want you to know that I need you right now
I need you tonite

I steal a kiss from her sleeping shadow moves
Cause I'll always miss her wherever she goes
And I'll always need her more than she could ever need me
I need someone to ease my mind
But sometimes a someone is so hard to find

And I'll do anything to keep her here tonite
And I'll say anything to make her feel alright
And I'll be anything to keep her here tonite
Cause I want you to stay, with me
I need you tonite

She comes to me like an angel out of time
As I play the part of a saint on my knees
There are some things I'll live without
But I want you to know that I need you right now

Suffer my desire
Suffer my desire
Suffer my desire for you

A Sadness Song - Current 93



When we touch the world
And it falls away
When we feel that we're born
Just to fall apart
And our mother lies in state
And the broken pitcher glistens
And the snow is at the window
Making neither sign nor symbol
And the earth covers earth
And the mud lies in pools

Where the sand-dunes stretch unbroken
And the dry wind bends and sighs
And the geese are running harmless
And our desires are running wild
When we're looking at the smoke
That's rising from the incense
Neither coming here nor going
Neither heaven here nor hell
Neither borning here nor birthing
Neither dying here nor death

And we're wrapped inside our troubles
And we're wrapped inside our pain
And wracked with fires with longing
And our eyes are blind with night
With our fingers clutching coins
And our thoughts burning with 'I'
And our eyes cannot be sated
With the world and its nightmares
With the world and its dreams
Though later they'll be filled
With a small handful of dust
And the gods appear on altars
And we recognize their face
It's a face that we have carved there
And it's full of fear and longing
And promises and threats
But they neither stoop to conquer
Nor do they stoop to praise
And the mines are void of diamonds
That we carry in our rags

And all the world seems
A sadness song
All the world seems
A sadness song

A Desolation Song - Agalloch



Here I sit at the fire
Liquor's bitter flames warm my languid soul
Here I drink alone and remember
A graven life, the stain of her memory
In this cup, love's poison
For love is the poison of life
Tip the cup, feed the fire,
And forget about useless fuckin' hope...

Lost in the desolation of love
The passions we reap and sow
Lost in the desolation of life
This path that we walk...

Here's to love, the sickness
The great martyr of the soul
Here's to life, the vice
The great herald of misery
In this cup, spiritus frumenti
For this is the nectar of the spirit
Quench the thirst, drown the sorrow
And forget about cold yesterdays...

Lost in the desolation of love
The passions we reap and sow
Lost in the desolation of life
This path that we walk...
Lost in the desolation of love
The sorrows we reap and sow
Lost in the desolation of life
The path that we walk...

Detachable Penis - King Missile



I woke up this morning with a bad hangover
And my penis was missing again.
This happens all the time.
It's detachable.

This comes in handy a lot of the time.
I can leave it home, when I think it's gonna get me in trouble,
or I can rent it out, when I don't need it.
But now and then I go to a party, get drunk,
and the next morning I can't for the life of me
remember what I did with it.

First I looked around my apartment, and I couldn't find it.
So I called up the place where the party was,
they hadn't seen it either.
I asked them to check the medicine cabinet
'cause for some reason I leave it there sometimes
But not this time.

So I told them if it pops up to let me know.
I called a few people who were at the party,
but they were no help either.
I was starting to get desperate.
I really don't like being without my penis for too long.
It makes me feel like less of a man,
and I really hate having to sit down every time I take a leak.

After a few hours of searching the house,
and calling everyone I could think of,
I was starting to get very depressed,
so I went to the Kiev, and ate breakfast.
Then, as I walked down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place,
where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street,
I saw my penis lying on a blanket
next to a broken toaster oven.
Some guy was selling it.
I had to buy it off him.
He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I talked him down to seventeen.
I took it home, washed it off,
and put it back on. I was happy again. Complete.

People sometimes tell me I should get it permanently attached,
but I don't know.
Even though sometimes it's a pain in the ass,
I like having a detachable penis.

Belladonna & Aconite - Inkubus Sukkubus



Belladonna and aconite
Give to me the gift of flight
Take me up, airborne in the night
In a dream, across the sky
A hundred - million miles high
Take me ever onwards in the night

Dark sisters join my night flight
See how far you can climb
Holt's with us on this bright night
Ride with him 'cross the sky

As a screaming horde
We cut the scape
The Devil's Apple exacerbates
To the sabbat on a demon steed I ride
Across the astral plane we race
The universe my fingers trace
And I am lost forever in my mind

Dark sisters join my night flight
See how far you can climb
Holt's with us on this bright night
Ride with him 'cross the sky

hemlock henbane aconite belladonna
Opium, Thornapple, Cinquefoil Mandragora

Second Love (acoustic live in Athens) - Pain of Salvation



Day after day
Nothing's changed you're far away
But I need you to know that I can't sleep anymore
By the nights
Night after night
The stars are shining so bright
Though our pain is larger than the universe tonight

I want you to know I can't sleep anymore
By the nights
By the nights
Day after day I want you to say
That you're mine
You are mine

Year after year
Tear after tear
I feel like my heart will break in two
You came like a wind I couldn't defend
You cut my heart so deeply
The scars won't mend

I'll never believe in love anymore
After this
After this
Can never change or rearrange
What we lost
What we lost

Time after time
I am wasting my time
Living in a past where I was strong
But now I am gone
I leave no shadow when I'm alone
I'll stay forever in my dreams where you are near

Want you to know I can't sleep anymore
By the nights
By the nights
Day after day I want you to say
That you're mine
You're mine

Come Back To Me - Ayreon



Let me take you back
To the time when we were chasing all the girls
Two maniacs
Indulging in the pleasures of this world

So much to see, so much to live for
Questions to answer, places to go
So much to be, so much to care for
Deep down inside I think you know
You are free...come back to me!

Look ahead and see
There are still so many borders we could cross
Just you and me
Making up for all the time that we have lost

[Best Friend] So much to see
[Me] He may be right
[Best Friend] so much to live for
[Me] I've got to fight
[Best Friend] Questions to answer
[Me] I will pull through
[Best Friend] places to go
[Me] take me with you
[Best Friend] So much to be
[Me] I will not break
[Best Friend] so much to care for
[Me] I must awake
[Best Friend] Deep down inside I think you know
[Me] I think I know
[Best Friend] You are free
[Me] I am free
[Best Friend] Come back to me!

[Best Friend] Aaaah, aaaah come back to me
[Me] There's no way out, my whole world is black!
[Best Friend] Aaaah, aaaah come back to me
[Me] I try to shout, my whole world is black!

Come back to me...

The Anchor Song - Bjork



I live by the ocean
And during the night
I dive into it
Down to the bottom
Underneath all currents
And drop my anchor
And this is were I'm staying
This is my home

We Stand Alone - Covenant



stand before the gates and watch metropolis
empires come and go we live forever
and eternity is in your hidden eyes
take my broken wings teach me to fly again

I stand alone
we stand alone

down the empty streets head for the seven hills
vestal virgins dance we steal the fire
battered columns stand as silent monuments
deep inside their dreams I see your memories

I stand alone

we share the last champagne and watch necropolis
still and so let's leave her to her silent walks
the sun of Rome is set and our day is gone
a kiss a taste of red from your open lips

I stand alone

Closer - Anathema



Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
To be trapped

Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
All your life

Shine in time
Shine in time
Shine in time
Until you find

You're closer
You're closer
To the truth

Within you
Within you
Within you
Is the truth

That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
All your life

You're closer
You're closer
You're closer

Ashes To Ashes - Faith No More



I want them to know it's me
It's on my head
I'll point the finger at me
It's on my head
Give it all to you, then I'll be closer
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
I'll see you

I will let you shout no more
It's on my head (It's on my head)
I'll pick you up from the floor
It's on my head (It's on my head)
I'll let you even the score
It's on my head (It's on my head)
Give it all to you, then I'll be closer
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
I'll see you

Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer
Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer
Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer

Believe - Savatage



So after all those one night stands
You've ended up with heart in hand
A child alone
On your own
Retreating

Regretful for the things you're not
And all the things you haven't got
Without a home
A heart of stone
Lies bleeding

And for all the roads you followed
And for all you did not find
And for all the things you had to leave behind

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night
I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams
Don't turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand
I'll be right there
I'll never leave
All I ask of you
Believe

Your childhood eyes were so intense
While bartering your innocence
For bits of string
The grown-up wings
You needed

But when you had to add them up
You found that there were not enough
To get you in
Pay for sins
Repeated

And for all the years you borrowed
And for all the tears you cried
And for all the fears you had to keep inside
Yeah

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night
I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams
Don't turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand
I'll be right there
I'll never leave
And all I ask of you
Believe, yeah

I never wanted to know
Never wanted to see
I wasted my time
Till time wasted me
Never wanted to go
Always wanted to stay
'Cause the persons I am
Are the parts that I play
So I plot and I plan
Hope and I scheme
To the lure of a night
Filled with unfinished dreams
And I'm holding on tight
To a world gone astray
As they charge me for years
I can't pay

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night
I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams
Don't turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand
I'll be right there
I'll never leave
All I ask of you
Believe

Falco A Meta - Gianluca Grignani



Sono seduto su un grattacielo
vedo gli aerei passare
poi guardo giù voglio saltare
voglio imparare a volare

E allora volo via
siamo in viaggio io e la mente mia
guardami ho già spiccato il volo
ed ora sono proprio sopra a casa tua

Il falco va
senza catene
Fugge gli sguardi sa che conviene
e indifferente sorvola già
Tutte le accuse
boschi e città
Io che sono falco
falco a metà

Sono di nuovo sul grattacielo
ed ho imparato a volare
se guardo giù quello che vedo
ora è la gente passare

E chissà se questo è
il segreto per vivere con me
Seduto su un grattacielo devo stare
in alto come un falco
per non farmi catturare

Ma il falco va
senza catene
fugge agli sguardi sa che conviene
e indifferente sorvola già
tutte le accuse
boschi e città

And so my friends
libera le ali ogni anima le ha
rubale alla libertà

Il falco va
senza catene
fugge agli sguardi sa che conviene
e indifferente
sorvola già tutte le accuse
boschi e città
io che son falco
falco a metà.

Red Sharks - Crimson Glory



Trapped in their world no free passage to leave
You accept their tyrannical dream
You pray to their gods not your chosen ones
Freedom's clutched in the jaws of red kings

Give us your freedom, we'll give you hell
Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil

Give us your freedom, we'll give you hell
Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil

Glory to red sharks
Answer to your red dictators
Feeding from your dreams
Cast into a sea of red sharks

Holding the power a hand that grips fate
Stripping from you all but fear
Hovering vultures like demons feed
On all who bow to their communist scheme

Give us your freedom, we'll give you hell
Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil

Give us your freedom, we'll give you hell
Hear no freedom, see no freedom, speak no freedom

Glory to red sharks
Answer to your red dictators
Feeding from your dreams
Cast into a sea of red sharks

Red sharks
Bloody the red sharks
Red sharks

Red sharks
Bloody the red sharks

Red sharks

Heaven Is A Place On Earth - Belinda Carlisle



When the night falls down
I wait for you
And you come around
And the world's alive
With the sound of kids
On the street outside

When you walk into the room
You pull me close and we start to move
And we're spinning with the stars above
And you lift me up in a wave of love...

Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth ?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth

When I feel alone
I reach for you
And you bring me home
When I'm lost at sea
I hear your voice
And it carries me

In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore

Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth ?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth

Σαν Όνειρο - Μάσκες



Ψάξε
στον λαβύρινθο της σκέψης πες μου είδες
την απάντηση στο πού και πώς μας βρήκες
θα 'χουμε να λέμε πάντα για τις νύχτες
στα λιμάνια στους σταθμούς

Στα σύννεφα πετάς και περιμένεις
σαν κύματα, μακριά, μακριά μου φεύγεις
σαν όνειρο, ματιά μες στο σκοτάδι
ένα όνειρο φωτιά κοντά ανάβει

Νιώσε
έστω μια στιγμή και πες μου μήπως είδες
πώς περνούν και πώς γελούν μαζί τις νύχτες
ότι είχαν να πουν το είπαν, μην κλαις
ετοιμάσου να χαθώ

Στα σύννεφα πετάς και περιμένεις
σαν κύματα, μακριά, μακριά μου φεύγεις
σαν όνειρο, ματιά μες στο σκοτάδι
ένα όνειρο φωτιά κοντά ανάβει

Dear Lover - Social Distortion



Loving, over and over again now
It ain't nothing girl, till you've felt the pain
Up against the wall, why does love always have to hurt
Your scratches run across my back and then a tear

Dear Lover, I can't take the pain no more
Dear Lover, I pick my heart up from the floor
Dear Lover, I can't believe it's come to this
Dear Lover, give me one last painful kiss
There ain't nothin', in this world for free now
So how high of a price will you pay
Hear the screams so loud, wake up to the broken glass
It's a scene from bad to worse, and many more tears

Only Entertainment - Bad Religion



Transfixated on the big blue screen
Your window to the outside
A melancholy dream
A medium upon which you build reality
This episodic currency
That everybody needs

Somebody's delivery lulls you to sleep
The man behind the weather map
The editor in chief
They control the world of power and disease
And you cannot suppress your curiosity
But see it's only entertainment
Superficial urgency
Posterboard mentality
Only entertainment
Tightly constrained
The buzz that remains
Is the story of how we run our lives

Many are the people poor and suffering
From the lack of coverage
From the transmission beam
And if it ever gets here
You'll be offended too
'Cause you cannot distinguish
Chicanery from truth
See it's only entertainment
A superficial episode
As life continues to unfold
Only entertainment
Controlled and copied
They've planted the seed
That sprouts into your picture of the world

Can't someone protect me (turn away, turn away)
From this electron beam (turn away, turn away)
Hey you, Mr.FCC (turn away, turn away)
Have you no advice for me? (turn away, turn away, turn away, turn away)

See it’s only entertainment (turn away, turn away, turn away, turn away)
Only entertainment
Only entertainment
I’m not pushing that sermonry
Leading you to poverty
Only entertainment
Aahhhhaaahahahaaahhaahh
Only entertainment
Only entertainment

Τα Γαλάζια σου Γράμματα - Δήμητρα Γαλάνη



Τα γαλάζια σου γράμματα
κάθομαι και διαβάζω
και με παίρνουν χαράματα
καθώς πίσω κοιτάζω.
Τα γαλάζια σου γράμματα
τρυφερές αναμνήσεις
να μου λες χίλια πράματα
μα δε λες να γυρίσεις.

Μια ζωή περιμένω μα δε γίνονται θάματα
Μια ζωή σ' ανασταίνω στα γαλάζια σου γράμματα
Μια ζωή περιμένω μα δε γίνονται θάματα
Μια ζωή σ' ανασταίνω στα γαλάζια σου γράμματα

Τα γαλάζια σου γράμματα
μαχαιριά κάθε λέξη
και με πιάνουν τα κλάμματα
σε ρωτώ: "τι έχω φταίξει;"
Τα γαλάζια σου γράμματα
τρυφερές αναμνήσεις
να μου λες χίλια πράματα
μα δε λες να γυρίσεις.

Μια ζωή περιμένω μα δε γίνονται θάματα
Μια ζωή σ' ανασταίνω στα γαλάζια σου γράμματα
Μια ζωή περιμένω μα δε γίνονται θάματα
Μια ζωή σ' ανασταίνω στα γαλάζια σου γράμματα

Gone Away - The Offspring



Maybe in another life
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can't deal it's so unfair

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it feels
Yeah it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away

Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and hail marys
Can't bring back what's taken from me
I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it stings
Yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that you've gone away

Loser - Ayreon



[Father]
Look at you, lying there,
defenseless and alone
See I am no fool, I always knew
you wouldn't make it on your own
Cos you're just like your mother,
well, where is she now?
You'll end up like her soon,
6 feet under ground, loser!

I came here to watch you bleed,
oh how I love to gloat
If you had any balls at all,
you'd grab me by the throat
You don't even look like me,
ha! Not even close!
You're an aberration,
some freak...I suppose, loser!

I had my fun, I'm going back
to the place I don't call home
There's no one there who waits for me,
but you won't hear me moan
My ex-wives all sue me,
and with half my kids in jail
I'll still come out laughing,
'cause me? I never fail, loser!

[Rage]
NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER!
Killing it from afar, go tell it in a bar
You're killing it from afar my father!

Road trippin' with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It's time to leave this town
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Anywhere in the U.S.A.

Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost

Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkles light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for

So much has come before those battles lost and won
This life is shining more forever in the sun
Now let us check our heads
And let us check the surf
Staying high and dry's
More trouble than it's worth
In the sun

Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for

In Big Sur we take some time to linger on
We three hunky dory's got our snakefinger on
Now let us drink the stars
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Right here in the U.S.A

Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost

Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkles light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These smiling eyes are just a mirror for
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for
Your smiling eyes are just a mirror for

Xanadu - Rush



"To seek the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
To break my fast on honey dew
And drink the milk of Paradise...."

I had heard the whispered tales
Of immortality
The deepest mystery
From an ancient book. I took a clue
I scaled the frozen mountain tops
Of eastern lands unknown
Time and Man alone
Searching for the lost ---- Xanadu

Xanadu ---- To stand within The Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kubla Khan
To taste anew the fruits of life
The last immortal man
To find the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
Oh, I will dine on honey dew
And drink the milk of Paradise

A thousand years have come and gone
But time has passed me by
Stars stopped in the sky
Frozen in an everlasting view
Waiting for the world to end
Weary of the night
Praying for the light
Prison of the lost ---- Xanadu

Xanadu ---- Held within The Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kubla Khan
To taste my bitter triumph
As a mad immortal man
Nevermore shall I return
Escape these caves of ice
For I have dined on honey dew
And drunk the milk of Paradise

Thick As A Brick - Jethro Tull



Really don't mind if you sit this one out.
My words but a whisper - your deafness a SHOUT.
I may make you feel but I can't make you think.
Your sperm's in the gutter - your love's in the sink.
So you ride yourselves over the fields and
you make all your animal deals and
your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.

And the sand-castle virtues are all swept away
in the tidal destruction, the moral melee.
The elastic retreat rings the close of play
as the last wave uncovers the newfangled way.

But your new shoes are worn at the heels and
your suntan does rapidly peel and
your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.

And the love that I feel is so far away:
I'm a bad dream that I just had today
and you shake your head and say it's a shame.

Spin me back down the years and the days of my youth.
Draw the lace and black curtains and shut out the whole truth.
Spin me down the long ages: let them sing the song.

See there! A son is born - and we pronounce him fit to fight.
There are black-heads on his shoulders,
and he pees himself in the night.
We'll make a man of him put him to trade
teach him to play Monopoly and to sing in the rain.

The Poet and the painter casting shadows on the water
as the sun plays on the infantry returning from the sea.
The do-er and the thinker: no allowance for the other
as the failing light illuminates the mercenary's creed.
The home fire burning: the kettle almost boiling
but the master of the house is far away.
The horses stamping - their warm breath clouding
in the sharp and frosty morning of the day.
And the poet lifts his pen while the soldier sheaths his sword.

And the youngest of the family is moving with authority.
Building castles by the sea,
he dares the tardy tide
to wash them all aside.

The cattle quietly grazing at the grass down by the river
where the swelling mountain water moves onward to the sea:
the builder of the castles renews the age-old purpose
and contemplates the milking girl whose offer is his need.
The young men of the household
have all gone into service
and are not to be expected for a year.
The innocent young master - thoughts moving ever faster
has formed the plan to change the man he seems.
And the poet sheaths his pen while the soldier lifts his sword.

And the oldest of the family is moving with authority.
Coming from across the sea,
he challenges the son
who puts him to the run.

What do you do whenthe old man's gone?
Do you want to be him?
And your real self sings the song.
Do you want to free him?
No one to help you get up steam
and the whirlpool turns you `way off-beam.

LATER.
I've come down from the upper class
to mend your rotten ways.

My father was a man-of-power whom everyone obeyed.
So come on all you criminals!
I've got to put you straight
just like I did with my old man
twenty years too late.
Your bread and water's going cold.
Your hair is too short and neat.
I'll judge you all and make damn sure
that no-one judges me.

You curl your toes in fun as you smile at everyone -
you meet the stares.
You're unaware that your doings aren't done.
And you laugh most ruthlessly as you tell us what not to be.
But how are we supposed to see where we should run?

I see you shuffle in the courtroom with
your rings upon your fingers and
your downy little sidies and
your silver-buckle shoes.
Playing at the hard case,
you follow the example
of the comic-paper idol
who lets you bend the rules.

So!
Come on ye childhood heroes!
Won't you rise up from the pages of your comic-books
your super crooks
and show us all the way.
Well! Make your will and testament.
Won't you? Join your local government.
We'll have Superman for president
let Robin save the day.

You put your bet on number one
and it comes up every time.
The other kids have all backed down
and they put you first in line.
And so you finally ask yourself
just how big you are
and take your place in a wiser world
of bigger motor cars.
And you wonder who to call on.

So! Where the hell was Biggles
when you needed him last Saturday?
And where were all the sportsmen
who always pulled you though?
They're all resting down in Cornwall
writing up their memoirs
for a paper-back edition
of the Boy Scout Manual.

See there! A man born - and we pronounce him fit for peace.
There's a load lifted from his shoulders with the discovery of his disease.
We'll take the child from him
put it to the test
teach it to be a wise man
how to fool the rest.

QUOTE
We will be geared to the average
rather than the exceptional
God is an overwhelming responsibility
we walked through the maternity ward
and saw 218 babies wearing nylons
cats are on the upgrade
upgrade? Hipgrave.

In the clear white circles of morning wonder,
I take my place with the lord of the hills.
And the blue-eyed soldiers stand slightly discolored
(in neat little rows) sporting canvas frills.
With their jock-straps pinching, they slouch to attention,
while queuing for sarnies at the office canteen.
Saying -- how's your granny and
good old Ernie:
he coughed up a tenner on a premium bond win.

The legends (worded in the ancient tribal hymn)
lie cradled in the seagull's call.
And all the promises they made
are ground beneath the sadist's fall.
The poet and the wise man stand behind the gun,
and signal for the crack of dawn.
Light the sun.

Do you believe in the day?
Do you believe in the day?

The Dawn Creation of the Kings
has begun.
Soft Venus (lonely maiden) brings
the ageless one.
Do you believe in the day?
Do you believe in the day?

The fading hero has returned to the night
and fully pregnant with the day,
wise men endorse the poet's sight.
Do you believe in the day?
Do you believe in the day?

Let me tell you the tales of your life
Of your love and the cut of the knife
the tireless oppression, the wisdom instilled
the desire to kill or be killed.

Let me sing of the losers who lie
In the street as the last bus goes by.
The pavements are empty: the gutters run red
while the fool toasts his god in the sky.

So come all ye young men who are building castles!
Kindly state the time of the year
And join your voices in a hellish chorus.
Mark the precise nature of your fear.

Let me help you pick up your dead
As the sins of the father are fed
with the blood of the fools
And the thoughts of the wise
from the pan under your bed.

Let me make you a present of song as
the wise man breaks wind and is gone while
the fool with the hour-glass is cooking his goose
and the nursery rhyme winds along.

So! Come all ye young men who are building castles!
Kindly state the time of the year
and join your voices in a hellish chorus.
Mark the precise nature of your fear.

See! The summer lightning casts its bolts upon you
and the hour of judgment draweth near.
Would you be the fool stood in his suit of armor
or the wiser man who rushes clear.

So! Come on ye childhood heroes!
Won't your rise up from the pages
of your comic-books your super-crooks
and show us all the way.

Well! Make your will and testament.
Won't you join your local government?
We'll have Superman for president
let Robin save the day.

So! Where the hell was Biggles
When you needed him last Saturday?
And where were all the sportsmen
Who always pulled you through?

They're all resting down in Cornwall
writing up their memoirs
for a paper-back edition
of the Boy Scout Manual.

So you ride yourselves over the fields
And you make all your animal deals
And your wise men don't know how it feels
To be thick as a brick.

Στίχοι: Νίκος Γρίτσης
Μουσική: Δημήτρης Κοντόπουλος
Πρώτη εκτέλεση: Ναυσικά

Ένα σπασμένο φτερό μου γιατρεύω και χάνομαι
Δεν έχω κρύψει ποτέ μου αυτό που αισθάνομαι
Αισθάνομαι στο δέρμα την ένταση στο τέρμα

Ναι...

Περιμένει στη γωνία μια καινούρια κοινωνία
Νέα τάξη των πραγμάτων ξημερώνει τέλος πάντων
Περιμένει στη γωνία μια καινούρια εμπειρία
Τα ρολόγια πάνε πίσω, είναι ώρα για να ζήσω

Κοινωνία στη γωνία, όλοι στην παρανομία
Όλοι μες στην αμαρτία και μετά στην εκκλησία
Κοινωνία δανεισμένη, απ’ τα χρέη της πνιγμένη
Έξι μέρες ναρκωμένη και το Σάββατο να βγαίνει

Ένα σπασμένο φτερό μου γιατρεύω και χάνομαι
Δε σταματάω ποτέ μου για κάτι να ψάχνομαι
Να ψάχνομαι ακόμα, για όνειρα και χρώμα

Δεν περιμένω άλλο...

Περιμένει στη γωνία μια καινούρια κοινωνία
Νέα τάξη των πραγμάτων ξημερώνει τέλος πάντων
Περιμένει στη γωνία μια καινούρια εμπειρία
Τα ρολόγια πάνε πίσω, είναι ώρα για να ζήσω (x2)

Κοινωνία γκλαμουράτη, στη βιτρίνα η απάτη
Θέλει Αλβανό εργάτη και Ρωσίδα στο κρεβάτι
Κοινωνία ετοιμάσου να σε φάνε τα παιδιά σου
Έρχεται το νέο αίμα, μπρος γκρεμός και πίσω ρέμα

Δεν περιμένω άλλο...

My Grave - Psychotic Waltz



They're cracking the cross where they hammer the nail
pennies they laid on the windows that failed
not really gone, but I'm so far away
all of your prayers cried at once all too late
once you fall down, end the round
end the round

Shades of my dark hour light where I lay
someone I don't know is passing my way
don't want to go, but I can't really stay
now I wait for this no one to take me away
given to the ground
end the round

Tears are falling down
given to the ground
end the round

Drums of the death marchers
drone through the day
the funeral flowers macabre disarray
fall to the tears and the dirt where they lay
now they've all come at once
and they've all come too late
given to the ground
end the round, end the round
end the round, end the round
end the round, end the round now
end the round, end the round
end the round

Porcelain Heart - Opeth



I lost all I had (that April day),
I turned to my friends (nothing to say),
I wrote down a name (and read it twice),
I wallowed in shame.

I said that I loved (eternal schemes),
I cling to my past (like childish dreams)
I promised to stay (and held my breath)
I went far away.

Icy roads beneath my feet,
Lead me through wastelands of deceit,
Rest your head now, don't you cry,
Don't ever ask the reason why

Kept inside our idle race
Ghost of an idol's false embrace
Rest your head now, don't you cry
Don't ever ask the reasons why.

Your Ghost - Kristin Hersh



If I walk down this hallway, tonight,
It's too quiet,
So I pad through the dark
and call you on the phone
Push your old numbers
and let your house ring
til I wake you ghost.
Let him walk down your hallway
it's not this quiet
slide down your receiver
sprint across the wire
follow my number
slide into my hand.

It's the blaze across my nightgown
it's the phone's ring.

I think last night
you were driving circles around me.

I can't drink this coffee
til I put you in my closet
let him shoot me down
let him call me off
I take it from his whisper
you're not that tough.

No Headstone On My Grave - Jerry Lee Lewis




Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave,
I want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies this man that loved you so

Mama, mama, don't you cry,
I'm gonna meet you in the by and by,
Tell papa I'm comin' home,
God, it can't be very long

Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave,
Want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies the stud that loved you so

Don't put no headstone on my grave,
All my life I've been a slave.
I want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies a man that loved you so

Mama, mama don't you cry,
I'm gonna meet you in the by and by,
Tell 'em, I'm coming home,
Oh God, it can't be very long

Don't put no headstone on my grave
All my life I've been a slave,
Want the whole wide world to know,
Here lies a man that loved you so.


A blues version of the song by Rose Q (from the film "Consenting Adults")

Sara - Fleetwood Mac

Wait a minute baby...
Stay with me awhile
Said you'd give me light
But you never told be about the fire

Drowning in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
And now it's gone
It doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
Call me home

And he was just like a great dark wing
Within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match, he was singing
And undoing the laces
Undoing the laces

Drowning in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
And now it's gone
It doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
Call me home

Hold on
The night is coming and the starling flew for days
I'd stay home at night all the time
I'd go anywhere, anywhere
Ask me and I'm there because I care

Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, never stop
And now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
When you build your house
I'll come by

Drowning in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
And now it's gone
It doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
Call me home

All I ever wanted
Was to know that you were dreaming
(There's a heartbeat
And it never really died)

Under The Boardwalk - The Return of Bruno



Oh when the sun beats down
And melts the tar up on the roof
And the streets get so hot
You wish your tired feet were fireproof

Under the boardwalk
Down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby
Is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love
(Under the boardwalk, boardwalk)

Now from the sand you'll hear
The happy sound of a carousel
You can almost taste the hot dogs
And French fries they sell

Under the boardwalk
Down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby
Is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love
(Under the boardwalk, boardwalk)

Oh, under the boardwalk
Down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby
Is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love
(Under the boardwalk, boardwalk)

The Boxer - Simon & Garfunkel



I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Lai luh lai...

Asking only workman's wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers,
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there

Now the years are rolling by me,
they are rockin' even me
I am older than I once was,
and younger than I'll be, that's not unusual
No it isn't strange,
after changes upon changes,
we are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same

Lai luh lai...

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Going home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Bleeding me, going home

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

Lai luh lai..

Wishful Thinking - Duncan Sheik



Listen to the waves,
Everything communicates
Will it ever be
Anything more than wishful thinking?

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
how much wasted time
Will you survive?

Feel the blades of grass
How it brings you back
it will always be
Only as green as you can see

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
how much wasted time
Will you survive?
Oh yeah fooled again,
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame
But wishful thinking

Little breakdowns
In coastal towns.
They come suddenly
Crashing over you.
They come easily.
I'm falling through the skies
And frozen places

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
how much wasted time
Will you survive?
Oh yeah fooled again,
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame
But wishful thinking

And I try to realize
That I needn't look any further
the whole of the universe
Is plain to see
And I try not to rely
On another world or the future
The whole of the universe is a mystery

And it gets me over
Yeah, it gets me over
and it gets me over
Yeah, it gets me over

Heart-shaped Box - Nirvana



She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

The Rover - Led Zeppelin



I've been to London, seen seven wonders
I know to trip is just to fall
I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it
I always knew what it was for

There can be no denyin' that the wind 'll shake 'em down
And the flat world's flyin', there's a new plague on the land

If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands

Traversed the planet when heaven sent me
I saw the kings who rule them all
Still by the firelight and purple moonlight
I hear the rested rivers call

And the wind is crying,
from a love that won't grow cold
My lover, she is lying,
on the dark side of the globe

If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands
If we could just join hands

You got me rockin' when I ought to be a-rollin'
Darlin', tell me, darlin', which way to go
You keep me rockin', baby, then you keep me stolen
Won't you tell me, darlin', which way to go... that's right

Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry
and I would dearly like to know
I've all this wonder of earthly plunder
will it leave us anything to show

And our time is flyin' see the candle burnin' low
Is the new world rising, from the shambles of the old

If we could just join hands
