'bout time we had a lyrics thread, we seem to toss lyrics around anyways like it's goin' out of style, now we have a place to put em.  Here goes, only way to start this thread out right, Afroman - Colt 45...

 

"I met this lady in hollywood

she had green hair but damn she looked good

I took her to my house because she was fine

but she whipped out a dick that was bigger than mine!"

 

The man's a fucking prophet, I tell ya.

Hey JunkerSeed no longer has stars! He has skull-like thingies! I want skull thingies! Anyway, looks like the trend is funny lyrics, so I'll post one set of funny lyrics, and one not-funny one because I want to:

 

How can I feel abandoned even when the world surrounds me

How can I bite the hand that feeds the strangers all around me

How can I know so many never really knowing anyone

If I seem superhuman I have been misunderstood

             - Dream Theater, Misunderstood

 

Many colours in the homo rainbow don't be afraid to let your colours shine

Many colours in the homo rainbow show me yours I'm gonna show you mine

If you find your pot of gold then every little thing is gonna work out fine

In the homo rainbow

Many colours in the homo rainbow pick any shade from black to yellow

Many colours in the homo rainbow warm embrace and a kind hello

             - Ween, The Rainbow

 

Can you guess which is the funny one?

Idlewild're a good mining ground for lyrics, don't know what half of em mean but they've a good turn of phrase:

 

 

"I smoke too much when you talk too much and when I argue Sid Barrett makes me laugh

I laugh at my conversational skills, or lack of"

- When I Argue I See Shapes

 

"The world is in my chaos dream but I am not invited"

- I'm Happy To Be Here Tonight

 

"I'm not that medieval, sometimes I write my thoughts down

Cos I can't even remember who I am

Who I am, where I am, what on earth I'm doing here

What on earth I know"

" What's going on out of the window now?

No, no I'm agile, and everyone says that you're so fragile"

- Everyone Says You're So Fragile

 

"Who would ever believe a word that you say?

You're disturbed in a strange fascinating way"

- Close The Door

 

 

"It's a better way to feel, don't be real, be post-modern"

- These Wooden Ideas

 

"It felt cold inside, so we threw the radio onto the fire

It felt good to watch it, burn away to nothing"

"It felt warm inside, so we threw the television on the fire

It was in frustration, because I had nothing to throw away"

- The Bronze Medal

 

 

"I’ve contacted, someone that I’ve always wanted to meet

We’ll talk about reality, you and me

We’ll talk about cruel, cruel reality"

- Meet Me At The Harbour

 

"When you're secure do you feel much safer

When you're life hasn't changed and its three years later

Its like you're life, hasn't changed

And its three years later"

- You Held The World In Your Arms

well, I've held myself back long enough. Here are some Rush lyrics that I really love and have effected me deeply in one way or another:

 

Spit out your anger

Don't swallow your tongue

Stick it out

Don't swallow the poison

Spit it out

Don't swallow your pride

Stick it out

Don't swallow your anger

Spit it out

Don't swallow the lies

    - Rush, from Stick It Out

 

I knew he was different in his sexuality

I went to his parties as a straight minority

It never seemed a threat to my masculinity

He only introduced me to a wider reality

As the years went by, we drifted apart

When I heard that he was gone

I felt a shadow cross my heart

But he's nobody's hero...

I didn't know the girl, but I knew her family

All their lives were shattered in a nightmare of brutality

They try to carry on, try to bear the agony

Try to hold some faith in the goodness of humanity

As the years went by, we drifted apart

When I heard that she was gone

I felt a shadow cross my heart

But she's nobody's hero...

    - Rush, from Nobody's Hero

 

All of us get lost in the darkness

Dreamers learn to steer by the stars

All of us do time in the gutter

Dreamers turn to look at the cars

Turn around and turn around and turn around

Turn around and walk the razor's edge

Don't turn your back

And slam the door on me

    - Rush, from The Pass

 

Sprawling on the fringes of the city

In geometric order

An insulated border

In between the bright lights

And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided

Opinions all provided

The future pre-decided

Detached and subdivided

In the mass production zone

Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions

In the high school halls

In the shopping malls

Conform or be cast out

Subdivisions

In the basement bars

In the backs of cars

Be cool or be cast out

Any escape might help to smooth the unattractive truth

But the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city

The timeless old attraction

Cruising for the action

Lit up like a firefly

Just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires

Or lose the race to rats

Get caught in ticking traps

And start to dream of somewhere

To relax their restless flight

Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights...

    - Rush, from Subdivisions

 

What would touch me deeper...

Tears that fall from eyes that only cry?

Would it touch you deeper

Than tears that fall from eyes that know why?

    - Rush, from Tears

 

You don't get something for nothing

You can't have freedom for free

You won't get wise

With the sleep still in your eyes

No matter what your dreams might be

    - Rush, from Something For Nothing

 

And the men who hold high places

Must be the ones who start

To mold a new reality

Closer to the heart

Closer to the heart

The blacksmith and the artist

Reflect it in their art

They forge their creativity

Closer to the heart

Closer to the heart

Philosophers and ploughmen

Each must know his part

To sow a new mentality

Closer to the heart

Closer to the heart

You can be the captain

I will draw the chart

Sailing into destiny

Closer to the heart

    - Rush, from Closer To The Heart

 

Because he was human

Because he had goodness

Because he was moral

They called him insane

Delusions of grandeur

Visions of splendor

A manic depressive

He walks in the rain

Eyes wide open

Heart undefended

Innocence untarnished...

Cinderella Man

Doing what you can

They can't understand

What it means

Cinderella Man

Hang on to your plans

Try as they might

They cannot steal your dreams

    - Rush, from Cinderella Man

 

All the same we take our chances,

Laughed at by time,

Tricked by circumstances.

Plus ça change,

Plus c'est la meme chose

The more that things change,

The more they stay the same.

    - Rush, Circumstances

 

There is unrest in the forest,

There is trouble with the trees,

For the maples want more sunlight

And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples,

(And they're quite convinced they're right)

They say the oaks are just too lofty

And they grab up all the light.

But the oaks can't help their feelings

If they like the way they're made.

And they wonder why the maples

Can't be happy in their shade.

There is trouble in the forest,

And the creatures all have fled,

As the maples scream "Oppression!"

And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union

And demanded equal rights.

"The oaks are just too greedy;

We will make them give us light."

Now there's no more oak oppression,

For they passed a noble law,

And the trees are all kept equal

By hatchet, axe, and saw.

    - Rush, from The Trees

 

All this machinery making modern music

Can still be open-hearted.

Not so coldly charted

It's really just a question of your honesty, yeah,

Your honesty.

One likes to believe in the freedom of music,

But glittering prizes and endless compromises

Shatter the illusion of integrity...

For the words of the profits were written on the studio wall,

Concert hall

And echoes with the sounds of salesmen.

    - Rush, from The Spirit Of Radio

 

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.

If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;

I will choose a path that's clear

I will choose freewill.

    - Rush, from Freewill

 

I really left out so many amazing lyrics, but I'll have to leave it at that. Sorry to all those hardcore Rushophobes that bash me and my love from Rush, but you probably didn't bother reading these lyrics anyway.

Anyone who doesn't like big lists of lyrics best leave this thread alone, else it could get messy!

I can just imagine the idiot now: "I don't big lists of lyrics, they make me furious! What's this? A thread entitled 'Lyrics'? Wow, that sounds great! I best click on it! It really does sound like the place for me!"

Start a thread about lyrics you'd better beleive you're gonna see a lot of Counting Crows coming out of me.  Be forewarned...

 

"Maria came form Nashville with a suitcase in her hand

She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis.

She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land

just like she's walking on a wire in the circus.

She parks her car outside my house

Takes her clothes off

Says she's close to understanding Jesus.

She knows she's more than just a little misunderstood

She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous.

 

Round here we're carving out our names

Round here we all look the same

Round here we talk just like lions

But we sacrifice like lambs

Round here she's slipping through my hands

 

....

 

But the girl on the car in the parking lot

says: "Man, you should try to take a shot

can't you see my walls are crumbling?"

 

Then she looks up at the building

and say's she's thinking of jumpin'.

She says she's tired of life,

she must be tired of something..."

How do you open these new milk cartons?

How come they don't make golden nuggets no more?

What is that ticker tape for at reception?

How come no-one wants to know what I saw?

 

Genius!

Yep, Counting Crows definitely has a place here. I always thought of their material as more of poetry set to music than real songs. I think we can also expect so Doors songs. But for now, why don't we all have everyone posting their favorite Beatles lyrics since Heartlees started it. I'm assuming Heartless' favorite lyrics are from 'My Guitar...' because 1) it's a good candidate and 2) she chose it above all others. To me there's no Beatles song more intelligent, more profound, more meaningful and realivant than this one: "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, She...", wait a minute, that's not right. Sorry, my bad! Actually my choice will come down to a tie betweeen two songs:

 

She's not a girl who misses much

Do do do do do do do do

She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand

Like a lizard on a window pane.

 

The man in the crowd with the multicoloured mirrors

On his hobnail boots

Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy

Working overtime

A soap impression of his wife which he ate

And donated to the Nation Trust.

 

I need a fix 'cause I'm going down

Down to the bits that I left uptown

I need a fix cause I'm going down

Mother Superior jump the gun

Mother Superior jump the gun

Mother Superior jump the gun

Mother Superior jump the gun.

 

Happiness is a warm gun

Happiness is a warm gun

When I hold you in my arms

And I feel my finger on your trigger

I know no one can do me no harm

Because happiness is a warm gun

Yes it is.

    - Beatles, Hapiness Is A Warm Gun

 

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,

They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,

Possessing and caressing me.

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world,

Nothing's gonna change my world.

 

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,

That call me on and on across the universe,

Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they

Tumble blindly as they make their way

Across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world,

Nothing's gonna change my world.

 

Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing

Through my open views inviting and inciting me

Limitless undying love which shines around me like a

million suns, it calls me on and on

Across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world,

Nothing's gonna change my world.

    - Beatles, Across The Universe

 

Those were a tough two to pick. Runner-ups included 'I Am The Walrus', 'For No One', 'Strawberry Fields Forever', 'Because', and many others. Those who read the lyrics might have noticed where my DrunkenDeities name came from. It's one half Beatles reference, one half Fight Club reference. Ok, post away, and remember, these aren't your favorite Beatles songs, but favorite lyrics.

I've always enjoyed a little ditty by nine inch nails called "Big man with a gun"  It's a quaint little song with powerful lyrics, I swear, it brings a tear to my eye every time I hear it...

 

i am a big man

(yes i am)

and i have a big gun

got me a big old dick and i

i like to have fun

held against your forehead

i'll make you suck it

maybe i'll put a hole in your head

you know, just for the fuck of it

i can reduce you if i want

i can devour

i'm hard as fucking steel, and i've got the power

i'm every inch a man, and i'll show you somehow

me and my fucking gun

nothing can stop me now

shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot

i'm going to come all over you

me and my fucking gun

me and my fucking gun

breathe in breathe out

tied to a wheel fingers got to feel

I spin on a whim I slide to the right

I felt you like electric light

for our love

for our fear

for our rise against the years and years

 

got a machinehead better than the rest

green to red machinehead

and I walk from my machine

I walk from my machine

 

deaf dumb and thirty

starting to deserve this

leaning on my conscience wall

blood is like wine

unconscious all the time

if I had it all again

I'd change it all

 

:D  :D  :D  :D

I had this song stuck in my head....

here's another one, this time from Green Day, it's "Dominated love slave" from their second cd, kerplunk.

 

I want to be your dominated love slave

I want to be the one that takes the pain

You can spank me when I do not behave

mack me in the forehead with a chain

 

'Cause I love feeling dirty

And I love feeling cheap

And I love it when you hurt me

So drive those staples deep

 

I want you to slap me and call me naughty

Put a belt slander against my skin

I want to feel pain all over my body

Can't wait to be punished for my sins

Alright then, here we go:

 

This is the end

Beautiful friend

This is the end

My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end

Of everything that stands, the end

No safety or surprise, the end

I'll never look into your eyes...again

Can you picture what will be

So limitless and free

Desperately in need...of some...stranger's hand

In a...desperate land

Lost in a Roman...wilderness of pain

And all the children are insane

All the children are insane

Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

There's danger on the edge of town

Ride the King's highway, baby

Weird scenes inside the gold mine

Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake

To the lake, the ancient lake, baby

The snake is long, seven miles

Ride the snake...he's old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best

The west is the best

Get here, and we'll do the rest

The blue bus is callin' us

The blue bus is callin' us

Driver, where you taken' us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on

He took a face from the ancient gallery

And he walked on down the hall

He went into the room where his sister lived, and...then he

Paid a visit to his brother, and then he

He walked on down the hall, and

And he came to a door...and he looked inside

Father, yes son, I want to kill you

Mother...I want to...fuck you

C'mon baby, take a chance with us

C'mon baby, take a chance with us

C'mon baby, take a chance with us

And meet me at the back of the blue bus

Doin' a blue rock

On a blue bus

Doin' a blue rock

C'mon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

This is the end

Beautiful friend

This is the end

My only friend, the end

It hurts to set you free

But you'll never follow me

The end of laughter and soft lies

The end of nights we tried to die

This is the end

    - Doors, The End

like collard greens that dont taste good

like a tree that's not made out of wood

like goin up and not comin down

to the beat beat, ya do the freak

everybody just rock and dance to the beat

have you ever went over a friends house to eat

and the food just aint no good

i mean the macaroni's soggy the peas are mushed

and the chicken tastes like wood

so you try to play it off like you think you can

by sayin that youre full

and then your friend says momma he's just being polite

he aint finished uh uh that's bull

so your heart starts pumpin and you think of a lie

and you say that you already ate

and your friend says man there's plenty of food

so you pile some more on your plate

while the stinky foods steamin your mind starts to dreamin

of the moment that it's time to leave

and then you look at your plate and your chickens slowly rottin

into something that looks like cheese

oh so you say that's it i got to leave this place

i dont care what these people think

im just sittin here makin myself nauseous

with this ugly food that stinks

so you bust out the door while its still closed

still sick from the food you ate

and then you run to the store for quick relief

from a bottle of kaopectate

and then you call your friend two weeks later

to see how he has been

and he says i understand about the food

baby bubbah but we're still friends

with a hip hop the hippie to the hippie

the hip hip a hop a you dont stop the rockin

to the bang bang boogie

say up jump the boogie to the rhythm of the boogie the beat

i say hank can ya rock

can ya rock to the rhythm that just dont stop

can ya hip me to the shoobie doo

i said come on make the make the people move

i go to the halls and then ring the bell

because i am the man with the clientele

and if ya ask me why i rock so well

a big bang, i got clientele

and from the time i was only six years old

i never forgot what i was told

it was the best advice that i ever had

it came from my wise dear old dad

he said sit down punk i wanna talk to you

and dont say a word until i'm through

now there's a time to laugh a time to cry

a time to live and a time to die

a time to break and a time to chill

to act civilized or act real ill

but whatever ya do in your lifetime

ya never let a mc steal your rhyme

so from sixty six til this very day

ill always remember what he had to say

so when the sucker mcs try to chump my style

i let them know that i'm versatile

i got style finesse and a little black book

that's filled with rhymes and i know you wanna look

but there's a thing that separates you from me

and that's called originality

because my rhymes are on from what you heard

i didnt even bite and not a god d--m word

and i say a little more later on tonight

so the sucker mc's can bite all night

a tick a tock yall a beat beat yall

a lets rock yall ya dont stop

ya go hotel motel whatcha gonna do today (say what)

ya say im gonna get a fly girl gonna get some spankin

drive off in a def oj

everybody go hotel motel holiday inn

ya say if your girl starts actin up then you take her friends

a like that yall to the beat yall

beat beat yall ya dont stop

well like johnny carson on the late show

a like frankie croker in stereo

well like the barkay's singin holy ghost

the sounds to throw down they're played the most

its like my man captain sky

whose name he earned with his super sperm

we rock and we dont stop

get off yall im here to give you whatcha got

to the beat that it makes you freak

and come alive girl get on your feet

a like a perry mason without a case

like farrah fawcett without her face

like the barkays on the mike

like gettin right down for you tonight

like movin your body so ya dont know how

right to the rhythm and throw down

like comin alive to the master gee

the brother who rocks so viciously

i said the age of one my life begun

at the age of two i was doin the do

at the age of three it was you and me

rockin to the sounds of the master gee

at the age of four i was on the floor

givin all the freaks what they bargained for

at the age of five i didnt take no jive

with the master gee its all the way live

at the age of six i was a pickin up sticks

rappin to the beat my stick was fixed

at the age of seven i was rockin in heaven dontcha know i went off

i got right on down to the beat you see

gettin right on down makin all the girls

just take of their clothes to the beat the beat

to the double beat beat that makes you freak

at the age of eight i was really great

cause every night you see i had a date

at the age of nine i was right on time

cause every night i had a party rhyme

i am the definate feast delight

cause i'm a helluva man when i'm on the mike

i am the definate feast delight

come to the master gee you see

the brother who rocks so viciously
