I'd Love to Change the World - Ten Years After




Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more


I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you


Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, monopoly


I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you


World pollution, there's no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war


I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

Strange Fruit - Billie Holiday



Southern trees bear strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees

Pastoral scene of the gallant south
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Uninvited - Alanis Morissette



Like anyone would be
I am flattered by your fascination with me
Like any hot-blooded woman
I have simply wanted an object to crave
But you, you're not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight


Must be strangely exciting
To watch the stoic squirm
Must be somewhat heartening
To watch shepherd need shepherd
But you you're not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight


Like any uncharted territory
I must seem greatly intriguing
You speak of my love like
You have experienced love like mine before
But this is not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight


I don't think you unworthy
I need a moment to deliberate

Love Walked In - Thunder



So tired of waiting I walked an empty land
I was looking for something to help me understand
But bad luck kept turning my dreams into sand


I didn't want pity, I had my share of friends

I wanted somebody more special than the rest
I was aching inside like I was approaching the end


Just about that moment the timing was so right
You appeared like a vision sent down to my life

I thought I was dreaming when I saw you that night
 

That's when love walked in through my door
That familiar feeling I had once before 

love walked in through my door
And it felt so strange


It's hard to remember being on my own
That kind of loving makes a hard man lose control
But I sleep so much better now I'm not alone


So promise me baby you're always gonna stay
I don't think I could take it seeing you walk away
You don't need to doubt it, I remember that day


That's when love walked in through my door
That familiar feeling I had once before
love walked in through my door
And it felt so strange


Like a long lost friend that hadn't changed
Giving me hope again

Love walked in
Love walked in


Just about that moment the timing was so right
You appeared like a vision sent down to my life
I thought I was dreaming when I saw you that night

Heroine - The Velvet Underground



I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
When I put a spike into my vein
And I'll tell ya, things aren't quite the same
When I'm rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I have made the big decision
I'm gonna try to nullify my life
'Cause when the blood begins to flow
When it shoots up the dropper's neck
When I'm closing in on death
And you can't help me not, you guys
And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a walk
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I'd sailed the darkened seas

On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
Put on a sailor's suit and cap
Away from the big city
Where a man can not be free
Of all of the evils of this town
And of himself, and those around
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
Because a mainer to my vein
Leads to a center in my head
And then I'm better off than dead
Because when the smack begins to flow
I really don't care anymore
About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
And everybody puttin' everybody else down
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

'Cause when the smack begins to flow
Then I really don't care anymore
Ah, when the heroin is in my blood
And that blood is in my head
And thank God that I'm as good as dead
And thank your God that I'm not aware
And thank God that I just don't care
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess I just don't know

Cool To Hate - The Offspring



I hate a lot of things
I hate a lot of people that are lame
I like to hate stuff
Cause then I don't have to try and make a change

I hate teachers
I hate school
I hate the cheerleaders
And anyone who's cool
I hate the office
I hate the quad
Don't wanna learn nothing
I want to be a slob

It's cool to hate
It's cool to hate
I don't like nothing and I like that fine

It's cool to hate
It's cool to hate
I don't like nothing and I like that fine
I don't like nothing and I like that fine
Yeah I hate everything
I even hate you, too
So fuck you

I'm always thinking bad
I never have nothing good to say
I'd rather tear things down
Than build them up
It's easier that way

I hate the jocks
And I hate the geeks
I hate the trendies
But I also hate the freaks
I hate Dr. Martens and muscle T's
I'm only happy when I'm in my misery

It's cool to hate
It's cool to hate
Liking something's just a waste of time

It's cool to hate
It's cool to hate
Liking something's just a waste of time
Liking something's just a waste of time
Yeah I hate everything
I even hate you, too
So fuck you

I'll cut you down and give you lip
Being positive's so unhip
I'll cut you down cause I'm a fool
Being positive's so uncool

I hate the jocks
And I hate the geeks
I hate the trendies
But I also hate the freaks
I hate your band and I hate TV
I'm only happy when I'm in my misery

It's cool to hate
Don't like nothing and I like that fine
Don't like nothing and I like that fine
Yeah, I hate everything
I even hate you, too
So fuck you!
