The Clairvoyant - Iron Maiden




Feel the sweat break on my brow
Is it me or is it the shadows that are dancing on the walls
Is this a dream or is it now
Is this a vision or normality I see before my eyes

I wonder why I wonder how
That it seems the power's getting stronger every day
I feel a strength an inner fire
But I'm scared I won't be able to control it anymore

There's a time to live and a time to die
When it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
That as soon as you're born you're dying


Just by looking through your eyes
He could see the future penetrating
Right in through your mind
See the truth and see your lies
But for all his power couldn't foresee his own demise

There's a time to live and a time to die
When it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
That as soon as you're born you're dying...
... and reborn again?

Uncle Arthur - David Bowie



Strikes the bell for 5 o'clock, Uncle Arthur closes shop
Screws the tops on all the bottles, turns the lights out, locks it up
Climbs across his bike and he's away
Cycles past the gasworks, past the river, down the high street
Back to mother, it's another empty day


Uncle Arthur likes his mommy
Uncle Arthur still reads comics
Uncle Arthur follows Batman


Round and round the rumors fly, how he ran away from Mum
On his 32nd birthday, told her that he'd found a chum
Mother cried and raved and yelled and fussed
Arthur left her no illusion, brought the girl round, save confusion
Sally was the real thing, not just lust


Uncle Arthur vanished quickly
Uncle Arthur and his new bride
Uncle Arthur follows Sally


Round and round goes Arthur's head, hasn't eaten well for days
Little Sally may be lovely, but cooking leaves her in a maze
Uncle Arthur packed his bags and fled
Back to mother, all's forgiven, serving in the family shop
He gets his pocket money, he's well fed


Uncle Arthur past the gasworks
Uncle Arthur past the river
Uncle Arthur down the high street
Uncle Arthur follows mother

Tomorrow's Yesterday - Rage


Whatever you may say
How long you want to stay
Tomorrow's yesterday

We are tomorrow's yesterday

It seems we've tried too much
To keep the status, to longer the touch
Of what we are today
Afraid of change we see
And interpret eternity
Like it's a static way

Whatever you may say
How long you want to stay
Tomorrow's yesterday

We are tomorrow's yesterday

And if we just accept the things
It's hard to bring us down
'Cause if we try to force the will
We break the rules and feed the firestorm

Afraid of death we are
We close our eyes from where we are
A point of no return
Misunderstanding that
The person we are is another step
For ourselves to learn

Whatever you may say
How long you want to stay
Tomorrow's yesterday

We are tomorrow's yesterday

If we will try to let it go we open ways to get
We better do a step aside, give room to grow
Not feed the firestorm

Come with me, it's hard to make you see
Just what it means to be
Why can't you see

Rising high, I know we have to try
Don't give it up for lies
Why can't you try

Talk to me
I'll try to make you see
Just what it means to be
Just let it be, just let it be, just let it be

Time is so relative
In secrecy we're learning to live
And nothing was in vain

We'll stand the test of time
Discovering the inner divine
The rules made not the game

Whatever you may say
How long you want to stay
Tomorrow's yesterday

We are tomorrow's yesterday

Whatever you may say
How long you want to stay
Tomorrow's yesterday

We are tomorrow's yesterday

Oh yeah, yeah
We're tomorrow's yesterday
Tomorrow's yesterday
Tomorrow's yesterday

Falling - Mullmuzzler



The world has turned me upside down again
And put me back right where I started from
I could have sworn, that I was fastened in
But you've broken me, now look what I've become
When innocence was all that I embraced
How is it that I fell from your grace


And I'm still

Falling
Falling


I'm still falling
Falling
I'm still falling


So obvious, yet I can't define
A gentle kiss, has never felt so wrong
You say you are, but you were never mine
I know you're here,
But somehow your heart is gone

When the smoke had cleared
And I knew what was true
How is it that I still fell for you


And I'm still

Falling
Falling


Feel like I'm still falling
Falling

Falling
Falling

Falling - Current 93 & HOH (backing vocals by Bjork)



The starlight has faded
The lamplight is dimming

And silence is growing
All around
All around


The voices are stopping
Eyesight fading, too
All around


We're covered by wind
Covered by wind


And if the universe
Should decide to stop
What then?
What then?


The starlight has faded
The lamplight is dimming
And all around


We're covered by wind


The shadows slide
Down the mountains


The clouds
Now have blocked out the sun
The shadows have
Blocked out the sun


And if the universe
Should decide to stop
What then?
What then?
What then?


The shadows move
Down the side of the valleys
Hovering
Too close to home
Too close to home

Falling In Love Again - Eagle Eye Cherry



I'm so tired of falling in love, finding it easier to fall out
I can't deny it
I feel it inside, oh, cupid's fire
Oh, you can't hide

I'm falling in love again, ain't nothing I can do
Falling in love again and this time it's with you
When I fall, it's always the same
And I'm so tired of playing this game, oh

It's been so long now since I gave up my heart
I've kept it locked down, I don't wanna get it harmed
So let me tell you now, I just wanna be sure
That you won't hurt me, oh, can you promise me that?

Falling in love again, ain't nothing I can do
Falling in love again, girl, and this time it's with you
When I fall, it's always the same
And I'm so tired of playing this game, oh

You got to tell me if you're gonna break my heart
'Cause I don't want to take a chance

And if it ain't true
All it's gonna be is nothing but a poor romance

So give me that promise to hold on
And I'll never let you go
I gotta have something to go on
I'm letting you know

Falling in love again, ain't nothing I can do
Falling in love again, girl, and this time it's with you
When I fall, it's always the same
And I'm so tired of playing this game, well

Eyes On Fire - Blue Foundation



I'll seek you out
Flay you alive
One more word and you won't survive

And I'm not scared
Of your stolen power
I see right through you any hour


I won't soothe your pain
I won't ease your strain
You'll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain


I'm taking it slow
Feeding my flame
Shuffling the cards of your game

And just in time
In the right place
Suddenly I will play my ace


I won't soothe your pain
I won't ease your strain
You'll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain


Eyes on fire
Your spine is ablaze
Felling any foe with my gaze

And just in time
In the right place
Steadily emerging with grace


Ahh, felling any foe with my gaze
Ahh, steadily emerging with grace
Ahh, felling any foe with my gaze
Ahh, steadily emerging with grace

Rebel Rebel - David Bowie



You've got your mother in a whirl
She's not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe your hair's alright
Hey babe let's go out tonight
You like me and I like it all
We like dancin' and we look divine
You love bands when they're playin' hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel, rebel you've torn your dress
Rebel, rebel your face is a mess
Rebel, rebel how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so

You've got your mother in a whirl 'cause she's
Not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe your hair's alright
Hey babe let's stay out tonight
You like me and I like it all
We like dancin' and we look divine
You love bands when they're playin' hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel, rebel you've torn your dress
Rebel, rebel your face is a mess
Rebel, rebel how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so

Rebel, rebel you've torn your dress
Rebel, rebel your face is a mess
Rebel, rebel how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so

Lake of Tears - So Fell Autumn Rain



Leaving with twilight though I was chosen
To wander the way in the darkest of nights
Oh, in the summer sun how soon I came to stray
A true damnation, when I turned away


So fell autumn rain, washed away all my pain
I feel brighter somehow, lighter somehow to breathe once again
So fell autumn rain, washed my sorrows away
With the sunset behind somehow I find the dreams are to stay
 

So fell autumn rain

Blinded by dawning so you would take me
Further away, away from the fall
Oh, you told me I must never dream again

A true damnation, you left me the pain

So fell autumn rain, but all things must pass


So fell autumn rain, washed away all my pain
I feel brighter somehow, lighter somehow to breathe once again 

So fell autumn rain, washed my sorrows away
With the sunset behind somehow I find the dreams are to stay
 

So fell winter

Cloudy Now - Blackfield



In a violent place we can call our country
Is a mixed up man and I guess that's me
The sun's in the sky but the storm never seems to end
It's a place of sorrow but we call it a home
And the darkest thoughts, yeah, I guess they're my own
There's wealth in the bank but there's nothing to show inside

It's cloudy now
It's cloudy now
It's cloudy now
It's getting cloudy now

In a special place that I call my life
The father was cruel and he lost his wife
But I don't see either 'cos I live across the street
It's a beautiful thing when it starts to rain
A man who drinks just to drown the pain
And I can't stop from dreaming there's something else

It's cloudy now
It's cloudy now
It's cloudy now
It's getting cloudy now

It's cloudy now
It's cloudy now
It's cloudy now
It's getting cloudy now
We are a fucked up generation
It's cloudy now

We are a fucked up generation
It's cloudy now

We gotta get out of here
It's cloudy now

We are a fucked up generation
It's cloudy now

Soul To Squeeze - Red Hot Chili Peppers



I've got a bad disease
But from my brain is where I bleed
Insanity it seems
Has got me by my soul to squeeze


Well all the love from thee
With all the dying trees I scream
The angels in my dreams (yeah)
Have turned to demons of greed that's mean


Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow

When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time


Today love smiled on me

It took away my pain say please
All that you had to free
You gotta let it be oh yeah
 

Oh, so polite indeed
Well I got everything I need
Oh make my days a breeze
And take away my self destruction


It's bitter baby
And it's very sweet
I'm on a roller coaster
but I'm on my feet

Take me to the river
Let me on your shore
I'll be coming back baby

I'll be coming back for more
I could not forget
But I will not endeavor
Simple pleasures aren't as special
But I won't regret it never


Where I go I just don't know
I might end up somewhere in Mexico
When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna keep you for the end of time

Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles



Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people


Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been,
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?


All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?


Father Mckenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near.
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?


All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?


Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people


Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father Mckenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved


All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people)
Where do they all belong?

Αλλεργία στις Δεσμεύσεις - Joanna Drigo



Και τώρα είσαι εδώ
κι ας μου είχες πει
δε θα ξαναγυρίσεις
και τη πόρτα πίσω σου
είχες χτυπήσει
   
Τώρα λες είσαι καλά
μια χαρά


Κι αν και είχες
αλλεργία στις δεσμεύσεις
πρέπει να γυρίσεις σπίτι
πριν τις έξι
Πρέπει να σε βρεί εκεί
δίπλα της


Κι αναρωτιέμαι θυμάσαι
όταν τις νύχτες κοιμάσαι
κι ας μου λες πως έχουν όλα τελειώσει
και είναι αργά


Και δε με νοιάζει τι κάνεις
ούτε αν ξέρεις τι χάνεις
φτάνει μόνο όταν σε βλέπω στο δρόμο
να δείχνεις καλά


Και τώρα είσαι εδώ
και μου λες πως ξέρει
και να μαγειρεύει
και το σπίτι της με τάξη το μαζεύει

Θεέ μου εσείς είστε καλά...
μια χαρά


Κι αναρωτιέμαι θυμάσαι
όταν τις νύχτες κοιμάσαι
κι ας μου λες πως έχουν όλα τελειώσει
και είναι αργά


Και δε με νοιάζει τι κάνεις
ούτε αν ξέρεις τι χάνεις
φτάνει μόνο όταν σε βλέπω στο δρόμο
να δείχνεις καλά

Misery - Soul Asylum



They say misery loves company
We could start a company and make misery


Frustrated, Incorporated
Well I know just what you need


I might just have the thing
I know what you'd pay to see


Put me out of my misery
I'd do it for you, would you do it for me
We will always be busy making misery


We could build a factory and make misery
We'll create the cure; we made the disease


Frustrated, Incorporated
Frustrated, Incorporated


Well I know just what you need
I might just have the thing
I know what you'd pay to feel


Put me out of my misery
All you suicide kings and you drama queens
Forever after happily, making misery


Did you satisfy your greed, get what you need
Was it only envy, so empty


Frustrated, Incorporated
Frustrated, Incorporated


Frustrated, Incorporated (put me out of my misery)
Frustrated, Incorporated (I'd do it for you, would you do it for me)
Frustrated, Incorporated (forever after happily)
Frustrated, Incorporated (making misery)

Fuck You - Archive



There's a look on your face I would like to knock out
See the sin in your grin and the shape of your mouth
All I want is to see you in terrible pain
Though we won't ever meet I remember your name
 

Can't believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself 

Pray to god I think of a nice thing to say
But I don't think I can so fuck you anyway


You are scum, you are scum and I hope that you know
That the cracks in your smile are beginning to show
Now the world needs to see that it's time you should go
There's no light in your eyes and your brain is too slow
 

Can't believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to god I can think of a nice thing to say
But I don't think I can, so fuck you anyway
 

Bet you sleep like a child with your thumb in your mouth
I could creep up beside put a gun in your mouth
Makes me sick when I hear all the shit that you say
So much crap coming out it must take you all day
 

There's a space kept in hell with your name on the seat
With a spike in the chair just to make it complete
When you look at yourself do you see what I see
If you do why the fuck are you looking at me

Why the fuck why the fuck are you looking at me

There's a time for us all and I think yours has been
Can you please hurry up cos I find you obscene
We can't wait for the day that you're never around
When that face isn't here and you rot underground
 

Can't believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to god I can think of a nice thing to say
But I don't think I can so fuck you anyway

So fuck you anyway

Wake Me Up - Avicii



Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start


They tell me I'm too young to understand
They say I'm caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes
Well that's fine by me


So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost


I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans


Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life's a game made for everyone
And love is the prize


So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost


Didn't know I was lost
I didn't know I was lost
I didn't know I was lost
I didn't know

Love Song - The Cure



Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again


Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again


However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you


Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again


However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths



Take me out tonight
Where there's music and there's people
And they're young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Anymore


Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people 

And I want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh, please don't drop me home
Because it's not my home, 

It's their home, and I'm welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine


Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought Oh God, my chance has come at last
(But then a strange fear gripped me

And I just couldn't ask)

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one...
Oh, I haven't got one


And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine


Oh, There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out
There Is A Light And It Never Goes Out

Love Over Six Centuries - Eloy




I'll tell you who I am and whence I came,
It's not going to be easy to explain

My body has returned, my mind is all at sea
Will you tell me who you are and where we're meant to be?
She answers in a gentle, lilting style,
Says little but speaks volumes with a smile
With a sparkle in her eye, she takes me by the hand
'Let us take a walk, I'll answer all I can.'


Jamie:
April, 1358...Paris...I don't understand any more... my name is
Jamie...and mine is a strange story... one which even I don't fully
understand...my father is a scientist... and he has been
experimenting with time-eroding drugs... I was sitting in his
workroom..it was late at night...and I was thinking... you know,
about me and my future...I've just left school...and I don't know
what I want to do...I must have somehow have taken the drug... and
landed up here.
 

Jeanne:
My name is Jeanne . . and let me tell you my story . . my father owns
many acres around here ... which are farmed by peasants ... whom he
rules with an iron hand .. the neighboring landlord's even worse
... and I'm supposed to marry his son ... That's not my choice, you
know the saying, 'like father, like son'.
 

Jamie:
Well, I see we've both got our problems ... perhaps we can help each
other ... I've got something here... lots of my friends smoke it...
I don't suppose you know it... try it, it helps at times like these...
 

Jeanne:
Oh what a beautiful feeling... everything shimmering in the
twilight... look at that sunset... I've never seen such colors
before... it all seems suspended in eternity... I wish moments like
these would last forever... I'm not worried any more... what are you
thinking?
 

Jamie:
I can't think at the moment... but I feel as if we've known each
other for years... let's just enjoy it.


Somehow we must stay together, lifelong friend, my lifelong friend,
Love like ours will last forever, never end, and never end:
We'll somehow wipe away our fears,
And find a way to bridge the years.

Dancing with the Moonlit Knight - Genesis



"Can you tell me where my country lies?"
said the unifaun to his true love's eyes.
"It lies with me!" cried the Queen of Maybe
- for her merchandise, he traded in his prize.

"Paper late!" cried a voice in the crowd.
"Old man dies!" The note he left was signed 'Old Father Thames'
- it seems he's drowned;
selling England by the pound.

Citizens of Hope & Glory,
Time goes by - it's the 'time of your life'.
Easy now, sit you down.
Chewing through your Wimpey dreams,
they eat without a sound;
digesting england by the pound.

Young man says 'you are what you eat' - eat well.
Old man says 'you are what you wear' - wear well.
You know what you are, you don't give a damn;
bursting your belt that is your homemade sham.

The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance ....
Follow on! Till the Grail sun sets in the mould.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.

There's a fat old lady outside the saloon;
laying out the credit she plays Fortune.
The deck is uneven right from the start;
all of their hands are playing apart.

The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance ....
Follow on! A Round Table-talking down we go.
You're the show!
Off we go with: - You play the hobbyhorse,
I'll play the fool.
We'll tease the bull
ringing round & loud, loud & round.
Follow on! With a twist of the world we go.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.

Angellore - Tristania



When summer's gone flee my angel  
Winter winds they might lead you far away  
Beyond the pale horizon, a greavin' silence  
Over dreams to my heart yet not remain
 

Oh, please believe  
It's in her eyes  It's inside 
It's in my heart, the same relation 
From which I once led astray
 

Oh, please believe 
It's in her eyes It's inside  
It's in my heart 
The same delightful place I once felt in you
 

Angellore revered at dusk 
For thee I rose, now descend all alone  
Rise for me, soothe my heart  
So wide a sea, may I overcome
 

Into the night strays an angel  
So lost and tearful all astray
 

Into the night strays an angel  
So lost and tearful all astray  
Lo where's the pale horizon  
Oh, where is dyingness  
You reach for me beyond so wide a sea
 

Oh, please believe  
It's in her eyes It's inside  
It's in my heart, the same desire I feel burning in me
Oh, please believe 

It's in her eyes It's inside 
It's in my heart, the same desire from the empty pain within
 

Rise for me, soothe my heart  
So wide a sea, may I overcome
 
Deep as the sea Wailing secrecies are burning in me For a dream I once desired I bequeath my sorrow and I regret to thee Cannot cross that wide a sea
Angellore revered at dusk For thee I rose, now descend all alone Rise for me, soothe my heart So wide a sea, may I overcome

The Logical Song - Supertramp



When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
joyfully, playfully watching me.


But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, responsible, practical.

And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
clinical, intellectual, cynical.

 

There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.


Watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!


At night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.

No Rain - Blind Melon



All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain.
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view but it's not sane.
It's not sane.


I just want someone to say to me, oh,
I'll always be there when you wake, yeah.
Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today.
So stay with me and I'll have it made.


And I don't understand why sleep all day
And I start to complain that there's no rain.
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake,
And it rips my life away but it's a great escape.
Escape, escape, escape.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
Ya don't like my point of view,
Ya think that I'm insane.
It's not sane, it's not sane.

I just want someone to say to me, oh, oh, oh
I'll always be there when you wake, yeah.
Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today.
I really wanna really gonna have it made.
Oh. Oh. Oh.

Hells Bells - AC DC



I'm a rolling thunder, a pouring rain 
I'm coming on like a hurricane  
My lightning's flashing across the sky  
You're only young but you're gonna die
 
I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives  

Nobody's putting up a fight 
I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell 
I'm gonna get you, Satan get you

Hell's Bells
Hell's Bells, you got me ringing 
Hell's Bells, my temperature's high
Hell's Bells
 
I'll give you black sensations up and down your spine  

If you're into evil you're a friend of mine 
See my white light flashing as I split the night '
Cause if God's on the left, then I'm stickin' to the right

I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives  

Nobody's puttin' up a fight 
I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell  
I'm gonna get you, Satan get you
 
Hell's Bells, Satan's comin' to you  

Hell's Bells, he's ringing them now  
Hell's Bells, the temperature's high 
Hell's Bells, across the sky  
Hell's Bells, they're takin' you down  
Hell's Bells, they're draggin' you around  
Hell's Bells, gonna split the night  
Hell's Bells, there's no way to fight

Raining Blood - Tori Amos



Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
Death will be their acquisition
The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me, the sky's crimson tears
Abolish the rules made of stone
Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above
Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away


Raining blood
From a lacerated sky


Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood

Je Suis Bossu - Ημισκούμπρια



Σου πήρα κινητό να μιλάμε όλη μέρα
σου πήρα και του βλάχου τη σκαλιστή φλογέρα.
Σου 'φτιαξα ραχάτ-λουκούμ ολάκερο ταψί
σου πήρα τη φανέλα του Ανθιμου Καψή.
Σ' αγόραζα κυλόττες και τα κομπινεζόνια
το πλαστικό το χρήμα για όλα σου τα ψώνια.
Ένα γλυκό τιγράκι από το μαχαραγιά
μα έγινε γατάκι γιατί ξέβαψε η μπογιά
σε πήγα Αυστραλία να δεις τα καγκουρώ
σ'αγόρασα στο Μέχικο την κάπα του Ζορό
σου πήρα ΝΤΟΝΤΟΝ παγωτό σταφίδα με το ρούμι
σε πήγα κα στην Κύπρο και σε τάιζα χαλούμι
σου επάνδρωσα ενυδρείο με άγριους καρχαρίες
ένα υδρομασάζ μικρό με μπαταρίες
έναν μονόχειρα ληστή,να έχεις για παιχνίδι
σαράντα φλιτζανάκια με το σήμα του Λουμίδη


Έδωσα τα πάντα για σένανε μαντάμ
και τώρα je suis bossu de clos de Notre Dame.

 
Σου σκάλισα σε μάρμαρο Απόλλωνα τον Φοίβο
σου πήρα υγρό καρότο στην πλαζ για να σε τρίβω
σου έφτιαξα ναό με πλάκες τις Καρύστου
σου πήρα το καπέλο του Κόμη Μοντεχρήστου
σου 'φτιαξε ο Τζεπέτο το Σκυριανό σαλόνι
σε πήγα Μονεμβάσια να δούμε το κανόνι
Σ' αγόραζα τους δίσκους του μέγα του Ρασούλη
και σου 'παιζα μπαλάντες του Μπίλι του Καζούλη
Σου πήρα τη ρακέτα του βασιλιά του Lear
παρείγγειλα στον Οβελίξ και σού 'φτιαξε μενίρ
Σου πήρα των ΗΜΙΖ την πρώτη τους την πλάκα
σου πήρα χαϊμαλιά από πλανόδιους στην Πλάκα.
σου πήρα τα 100 σκυλάκια Δαλματίας
το ένα το 'κανε σκουφί ενάς εγκληματίας
το 'πα το 'κανα σε έψαξα σε βρήκα
σε πλήρωσα χρυσάφι και ας μην είχες προίκα


Έδωσα τα πάντα για σένανε μαντάμ
και τώρα je suis bossu de clos de Notre Dame


Σου έδινα φιλάκια ματσα μουτσα ματς
εκβίασα τον Πρύτανη για να σου μάθει σκρατς
σ' έμαθα να κάνεις του Μπόζο την γκριμάτσα
σου έμαθα σε Μεξικάνικους ρυθμούς το "κουκαράτσα"
σου βρήκα του Ιάσωνα χρυσόμαλλο το δέρας
σου τραγούδαγα ισπανικά γλυκά σαν τον Μπαντέρας
Σου πήρα αυτοκόλλητα χαρτάκια τα Pannini
σου πήρα το βιολί του Νίκου Παγκανίνι
σου πήρα Ανναμπέλ το "Ένα πρωινό"
'κείνο το καλοκαίρι με Λάκη Κομνηνό
σου πήρα τα πλοκάμια του Dr Octapus
αφρόλουτρο παπάκι όταν θα κάνεις ντους
Σου βρήκα το σπανιότατο τσαντάκι του Sport Billy
σου πήρα Μάγια μέλισσα σου πήρα και το Βίλλυ.
Σου έσκαψα ορυχείο με φλέβα από λιγνίτη
μα τώρα παίζω τη λατέρνα σαν τον Αυλωνίτη.


Έδωσα τα πάντα για σένανε μαντάμ
και τώρα je suis bossu de clos de Notre Dame.

Blue Jeans - Lana Del Rey



Blue jeans, White shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like James Dean, for sure
You so fresh to death & sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favorite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!


I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, say you'll remember
I will love you till the end of time


Big dreams, gangster
Said you had to leave to start your life over
I was like: "no please, stay here,"
We don't need no money we can make it all work
But he headed out on Sunday, said he'd come home Monday
I stayed up waitin', anticipatin' and pacin' but he was
Chasing paper
"Caught up in the game" that was the last I heard


I will love you till the end of time
I'd wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, say you'll remember
I will love you till the end of time


You went out every night
And baby that's alright
I told you that no matter what you did I'd be by your side
Cause I'm a ride or die
Whether you fail or fly
Well shit, at least you tried.
But when you walked out that door, a piece of me died
I told you I wanted more but that's not what I had in mind
I just want it like before
We were dancin' all night
Then they took you away, stole you out of my life
You just need to remember...


I will love you till the end of time
I'd wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, say you'll remember
I will love you till the end of time

A Poor Man's Moody Blues - Barclay James Harvest



All the nights that I've missed you  
All the nights without end  
All the times that I've called you  
Only needing a friend
 

Now, your eyes shine with beauty 
That I missed long ago  
Guess, the truth is I love you 
I can't say any more
 

'Cause I need you 
Yes, I want you 
Yes, I love you
 

As I look from my window 
To the streets where you stand  
I am gazing through dark glass  
We can't walk hand in hand
 

Though your friends try to tell me 
Though your friends you defend  
They keep my heart from your heart 
We must be in the end
 

'Cause I love you 
Yes, I need you  
Yes, I love you, love you
 

All the nights that I've missed you 
All the nights without end  
All the times that I've called you  
Only needing a friend
 

Now, your eyes shine with beauty  
That I missed long ago 
Guess, the truth is I love you 
I can't say any more
 

'Cause I need you  
Yes, I want you 
Yes, I love you, love you
 

'Cause I need you 
Yes, I want you 
Yes, I love you, love you, love you

Open Car - Porcupine Tree



Nothing like this
Felt in her kiss
Cannot resist her
Fell for her charm
Lost in her arms
I keep a photograph
Give me a glimpse
Let me come in
Be there inside her
Here it begins
Here is the sin
Something to lie about


You think you're smart
I think you're art
We agree on this
It doesn't work
Feeling like dirt
Feeling like you don't care
We get a room
And in the gloom
She lights a cigarette
Clothes on the bed
Love me she said
I lose myself to her


I'm getting feelings
I'm hiding too well
(Bury the heart shaped shell)


Something broke inside my stomach
I let the pieces lie just where they fell
(Being with you is hell)


Hair blow in an open car
Summer dress slips down her arm
Hair blown in an open car


OK what's next?
After the sex
What do we do now?
Finding the time
Drawing the line
And never crossing it
Gave her the hours
Gave her the power
Cannot erase her
Gave her the truth
Gave her the proof
I gave her everything


I'm getting feelings
I'm hiding too well
(Bury the heart shaped shell)


Something broke inside my stomach
I let the pieces lie just where they fell
(Being with you is hell)


Hair blow in an open car
Summer dress slips down her arm
Hair blown in an open car
On a drive out to the farm


Hair blown in an open car

Hair blown in an open car
Summer dress slips down your arm
Hair blown in an open car

Lullaby - Blackfield



[Lyrics - Steven Wilson]

Share my cup
Tie me up
Never part
Break my heart


Go to sleep
Wound me deep
Be at peace
Make me bleed

Do no harm
Twist my arm
Lie with grace
Smash my face


Kiss the ground
Drag me down
Stop the noise
Smash my toys

How does it feel without your drugs? (Sing you a lullaby)
How does it feel with my love? (Sing you a lullaby)

Easter - Marillion



The ghost of a mist was on the field
The gray and the Green together
The noise of a distant farm machine
Out of the first light came

A tattered necklace of hedge end trees
On the southern side of the hill
Betrays where the border runs between
Where Mary Dunoon's boy fell

Easter here again
A time for the Blind to see
Easter
Surely now can all of your hearts be free

Out of the port of Liverpool
Bound for the North of Ireland
The wash of the spray and horsetail waves
The roll of the sea below

And Easter here again
A time for the Blind to see
Easter
Surely now can all of your hearts be free

What will you do?
Make a stone of your heart?
Will you set things right?
When you tear them apart?
Will you sleep at night?
With the plough and the stars alight?

What will you do?
With the wire & the gun?
That'll set things right
When it's said and done?
Will you sleep at night?
Is there so much love to hide?

Forgive
Forget
Sing 'Never again'

Uncle John's Band - Grateful Dead



Well the first days are the hardest days,
Don't you worry any more, 'Cause when life looks like easy
Street, there is danger at your door.
Think this through with me, let me know your mind.
Woh - oh, what I want to know, is are you kind?


It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice.
You know all the rules by now and the fire from ice.
Will you come with me, won't you come with me?
Woh - oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?


Goddamn, well I declare, have you seen the like?
Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is
Don't tread on me. 

Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide.
Come with me, or go alone.
He's come to take his children home.

It's the same story the crow told me;
It's the only one he knows.
Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go.
Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait,
Woh - oh, what I want to know, where does the time go?


I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar's Tomb;
I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune
Anybody's choice, I can hear your voice.
Woh - oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?


Come hear Uncle John's Band by the riverside
Got some things to talk about, here beside the risin' tide


Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide,
Come on along, or go alone,
He's come to take his children home.


Woh - oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?


Come hear Uncle John's Band by the riverside,
Got some things to talk about here beside the risin' tide.


Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide.

Come on along or go alone, he's come to take his children home.

I Want To Be Alone - Jackson C. Frank




I want to be alone
I need to touch each stone
Face the grave that I have grown
I want to be
Alone


Before all the days are gone
And darker walls are bent and torn
To pass the time of those who mourn
I want to be
Alone


Rivers that run anywhere
Are in my hand and just up the stair
Past the eyes of those who care
Who can never be
Alone


Changes that were not meant to be
Tow the hours of my memory
Sing a song of love to me
To say you must never
Never be alone


The tears of a silent rain
Seek shelter on my broken pain
And run away
But I remain
To speak the words
That sing
Of alone


I want to be alone
I need to touch each stone
Face the grave that I have grown
I want to be
Alone

Little Black Submarines - The Black Keys



Little black submarines
Operator please
Put me back on the line
Told my girl I'd be back
Operator please
This is wrecking my mind


Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

 
Pick you up, let you down
When I wanna go
To a place I can hide
You know me, I had plans
But they just disappeared
To the back of my mind


Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind


Treasure maps, falling trees
Operator please
Call me back when it's time
Stolen friends and disease
Operator please
Put me back on the line


Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time


I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind


That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

Human - The Killers



I did my best to notice  
When the call came down the line 
Up to the platform of surrender 
I was brought, but I was kind
And sometimes I get nervous 

When I see an open door  
Close your eyes, clear your heart   
Cut the cord
 

Are we human or are we dancer? 
My sign is vital, my hands are cold  
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer 
Are we human or are we dancer?
 

Pay my respects to grace and virtue 
Send my condolences to good  
Give my regards to soul and romance 
They always did the best they could
And so long to devotion 

You taught me everything I know 
Wave goodbye, wish me well  
You've gotta let me go
 

Are we human or are we dancer? 
My sign is vital, my hands are cold 
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer 
Are we human or are we dancer?
 

Will your system be alright 
When you dream of home tonight? 
There is no message we're receiving 
Let me know, is your heart still beating?
 

Are we human or are we dancer?  
My sign is vital, my hands are cold 
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
 
You've gotta let me know  

Are we human or are we dancer? 
My sign is vital, my hands are cold  

And I'm on my knees looking for the answer  
Are we human or are we dancer?
Are we human or are we dancer? 

Are we human or are we dancer?

Charlie Big Potato - Skunk Anansie



I awake
From blood thick dreams
Washing blame
From my knees

Softly done
So secretly
I'm awake
As Charlie sleeps

A lone brother, a lone sister
A home cover, alone


I awake

Dry the scream
Spit the vile breath
Till my tongue bleed

Thinks it's all gone
Famously

Broke the hard girl
Good to please


TELL IT LIKE IT IS

TELL IT LIKE IT IS

TELL THE SORDID TRUTH


TELL THEM


TELL IT LIKE IT IS


TELL THEM
