After seeing the Concrete Blonde thread, I was reminded of one of my favourite verses of a song in Tomorrow Wendy

I told the priest - don’t count on
Any second coming.
God got his ass kicked the first time he
Came down here slumming
He had the balls to come, the gall to die
And then forgive us -
No, I don’t wonder why
I wonder what he thought
It would get us

It sounds especially good coming with Andy Prieboys voice, but for some reason it resonates with me. So what other favourites are there out there?

At this moment in my life, would have to be the chors of "Easyier To Run" - Linkin Park. Probs cause I can't stop listening to it today...


It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

Under a dead Ohio sky,
Eleven has been and will be waiting
Defending his light,
and wondering....
Where the hell have i been?
Sleeping, lost and numb.
So glad i have have found you.
I am wide awake and heading home.

Bring out your dead - Strung Out

Don't wanna think about it,
I indulge myself
Distraction eases pain, bury my
Emotions to protect myself.
Till I can't feel a ****ing thing
I've dared to dream I've tried to live
But I've played it safe again
Just another slave to my vices now
Bring out your dead
Voices wither and crack then die
Ringin' in my ear would sing me
Soft asleep
Deathly silence now is all I hear
Has inspiration finally eluded me

The whole d12 my band song lol, but mainly this one:

I'm the lead singer of my band, I get all the girl's to take off their underpants
And the lead singer of my band, my salsa
Makes all the pretty girl's wan to dance
My salsa, look out for my next single, it's called My Salsa...
My salsa, salsa, salsa, salsa, my salsa
Makes all the pretty girls wan to dance
And take off their underpants
My salsa makes all the pretty girls wan to dance
And take off their underpants, my salsa
(Where'd everybody go?)

Through the lights cameras and action, glamour glitters and gold
I unfold the scroll, plant seeds to stampede the globe
When I'm deceased, by then the beast arise like yeast
to conquer peace leaving savages to roam in the streets
Live on the run, police paying me to give in my gun
Trick my Wisdom, with the system that imprisoned my son
Smoke a gold leaf I hold heat, nonchalantly
I'm grungy, but things I do is real it never haunts me
while, funny style n**gaz roll in the pile
Rooster heads profile on a bus to Riker's Isle
Holdin weed inside they pussy with they minds on the
pretty things in life, props is a true thug's wife
It's like a cycle, n**gaz come home, some'll go in
Do a bullet, come back, do the same **** again
From the womb to the tomb, presume the unpredictable
Guns salute life, rapidly, that's the ritual

These be three of my favourite songs, and I guess the lyrics just suit the mood I'm in or have been in, and stuff....

"So many things left unsaid, but I won't even waste my time,
For us to go our serarate ways I hope you miss me when I'm gone
Friendships aren't built on false promises.
I've failed without defeat.
In this game of disrespect I'm a victim of small town rivalry."
- Song 13, The Ataris

"War all of the time in the shadow of the New York skyline.
We grew up too fast now we're falling like ashes of American flags.
If the sun doesn't rise, we'll replace is with an H-Bomb explosion,
A painted jail cell of light in the sky like three-mile island nightmares on TV that sing us to sleep,
They burn on like an oil field or a memory of what it felt like to burn on and on and not just fade away"
-War all of the Time, Thursday

"I eat vegetation cause of "Fast Food Nation",
I wear a couple of shoes because of globalization.
I'm watching Michael Moore, expose "The Awful Truth",
I'm listening to Public Enemy and Regan Youth.
I see no world peace cause of zealous armed forces,
I eat no breath mints cause they'r from de-hooved horses.
And now I can't believe what an absolute failure,
The presidents laughing cause we voted for Nader."
- Franco Un-American, NOFX

"'Til I Die"




I'm a cork on the ocean
Floating over the raging sea
How deep is the ocean?
How deep is the ocean?
I lost my way
Hey hey hey

I'm a rock in a landslide
Rolling over the mountainside
How deep is the valley?
How deep is the valley?
It kills my soul
Hey hey hey

I'm a leaf on a windy day
Pretty soon I'll be blown away
How long will the wind blow?
How long will the wind blow?
Ohhhh

Until I die
Until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die
These things I'll be until I die











"Surf's Up"


A diamond necklace played the pawn
Hand in hand some drummed along, oh
To a handsome man and baton
A blind class aristocracy
Back through the opera glass you see
The pit and the pendulum drawn
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping?

Hung velvet overtaken me
Dim chandelier awaken me
To a song dissolved in the dawn
The music hall a costly bow
The music all is lost for now
To a muted trumperter swan
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping, Brother John?

Dove nested towers the hour was
Strike the street quicksilver moon
Carriage across the fog
Two-Step to lamp lights cellar tune
The laughs come hard in Auld Lang Syne

The glass was raised, the fired rose
The fullness of the wine, the dim last toasting
While at port adieu or die

A choke of grief heart hardened I
Beyond belief a broken man too tough to cry

Surf's Up
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children's song

Child, child, child, child, child
A child is the father of the man
Child, child, child, child, child
A child is the father of the man

A children's song
Have you listened as they played
Their song is love
And the children know the way

That's why the child is the father to the man
Child, child, child, child, child
Child, child, child, child, child
Na na na na na na na na
Child, child, child, child, child
That's why the child is the father to the man
Child, child, child, child, child

An oldie but a goodie! This Frank Sinatra classic says it all!

And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.

I've lived a life that's full.
I've traveled each and every highway;
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

I've loved, I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
"No, oh no not me,
I did it my way".

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!

This is the chorus from a metallica song named "The House Jack Built", just reading it, it does not sound like much but its great when you listen to it.


The higher you are
The farther you fall
The longer the walk
The farther you crawl
My body, my temple
This temple, it tilts
Step into the house that Jack built

Mad man drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat,
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat.
With a boulder on my shoulder feeling kind of older I tripped the merry go round,
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground.

BLINDED BY THE LIGHT.......Bruce Springsteen.

Early man walked away
As modern man took control
Their lives weren't quite the same
To conquer was his goal
So he built this great empire
And he slaughtered his own kind
And he died a confused man
Killed himself with his own mind

so friggin' true man...

"I'd kill myself for you... i'd kill you for myself"

This Love - Pantera

And one for the whole family to sing along to:

Angel of Death - Slayer

Auschwitz, the meaning of pain
The way that I want you to die
Slow death, immense decay
Showers that cleanse you of your life

Forced in
Like cattle
You run
Stripped of your life's worth

Human mice, for the Angel of Death
Four hundred thousand more to die

Angel of Death
Monarch to the kingdom of the dead

Sadistic, surgeon of demise
Sadist of the noblest blood
Destroying, without mercy
To benefit the Aryan race

Surgery, with no anesthesia
Feel the knife pierce you intensely
Inferior, no use to mankind
Strapped down screaming out to die

Angel of Death
Monarch to the kingdom of the dead
Infamous butcher,
Angel of Death

Pumped with fluid, inside your brain
Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes
Burning flesh, drips away
Test of heat burns your skin, your mind starts to boil

Frigid cold, cracks your limbs
How long can you last
In this frozen water burial?

Sewn together, joining heads
Just a matter of time
'Til you rip yourselves apart

Millions laid out in their
Crowded tombs
Sickening ways to achieve
The holocaust

Seas of blood, bury life
Smell your death as it burns
Deep inside of you
Abacinate, eyes that bleed
Praying for the end of
Your wide awake nightmare

Wings of pain, reach out for you
His face of death staring down,
Your blood running cold
Injecting cells, dying eyes
Feeding on the screams of
The mutants he's creating

Pathetic harmless victims
Left to die
Rancid Angel of Death
Flying free

Angel of Death
Monarch to the kingdom of the dead
Infamous butcher,
Angel of Death
