David Bowie - Time

Time - He's waiting in the wings
He speaks of senseless things
His script is you and me boys

Time - He flexes like a whore
Falls wanking to the floor
His trick is you and me, boy

Time - In Quaaludes and red wine
Demanding Billy Dolls
And other friends of mine
Take your time

The sniper in the brain, regurgitating drain
Incestuous and vain,
and many other last names
I look at my watch it says 9:25 and I think
"Oh God I'm still alive"

We should be on by now [x2]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la [repeat]

You - are not a victim
You - just scream with boredom
You - are not evicting time

Chimes - Goddamn, you're looking old
You'll freeze and catch a cold
'Cause you've left your coat behind
Take your time

Breaking up is hard, but keeping dark is hateful
I had so many dreams,
I had so many breakthroughs
But you, my love, were kind, but love has left you
dreamless
The door to dreams was closed.
Your park was real dreamless
Perhaps you're smiling now,
smiling through this darkness
But all I had to give was the guilt for dreaming

We should be on by now [x5]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la [repeat]

Yeah, time!

P!nk: Try

Ever wonder about what he's doing?
How it all turned to lies?
Sometimes I think that it's better to never ask why

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Eh, eh, eh

Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy?
Even when it's not right

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Ever worry that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you're out there doing what you're doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by, by, by?

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Evanescence - Tourniquet




I tried to kill the pain
but only brought more
so much more
I lay dying
and I'm pouring crimson regret and betrayal
I'm dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
am I too lost to be saved
am I too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

do you remember me
lost for so long
will you be on the other side
or will you forget me
I'm dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
am I too lost to be saved
am I too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

I want to die!!!

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my wounds cry for the grave
my soul cries for deliverance
will I be denied Christ
tourniquet
my suicide

Evanescence - Taking Over Me



you don't remember me but i remember you
i lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
but who can decide what they dream?
and dream i do...

i believe in you
i'll give up everything just to find you
i have to be with you to live to breathe
you're taking over me

have you forgotten all i know
and all we had?
you saw me mourning my love for you
and touched my hand
i knew you loved me then

i believe in you
i'll give up everything just to find you
i have to be with you to live to breathe
you're taking over me

i look in the mirror and see your face
if i look deep enough
so many things inside that are just like you are taking over

Translation of a Malay metal song: Aku Mahu Pulang (I Wish To Return)
Probably the most powerful lyrics I know of any song. Translation doesn't bring it across very well because it fails to capture the double/triple meaning of most of the words. It's very concise as far as poetry goes, hitting several meanings with a single line. And the heavy guitars and powerful vocals go along so well with the lyrics.


The darkness of night will be bright
The sun will return
Lost in our journey
The grace of God decides

Give me time to wash away my sins
I'll return to pay back my years passed
Hunting alone in the seasons that gone by
Suppressing lust by forcing down loneliness killers
With the fantasies of having a life
The needles are my companion
They are what I chase

The darkness of night will be bright
The sun will return
Lost in our journey
The grace of God decides

Please accept my visage
Don't keep hating until death
As days goes by you'll understand
As time goes on you'll know the feeling
I am human
An actor in a story
On the stage of His creation
I didn't disobey on purpose
Sometimes we forger
Our roles and purpose
I am human

The darkness of night will be bright
The sun will return
Lost in our journey
The grace of God decides

Please accept my visage
Don't keep hating until death
As days goes by you'll understand
As time goes on you'll know the feeling
I am human
An actor in a story
On the stage of His creation
I didn't disobey on purpose
Sometimes we forger
Our roles and purpose
I am human

The darkness of night will be bright
The sun will return
Lost in our journey
The grace of God decides

Nine-Inch Nails, "Hurt" (especially the Johnny Cash cover)

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that's real

The needle tears a hole,
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away,
But I remember everything

What have I become,
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

And you could have it all,
My empire of dirt
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt

I wear my crown of thorns
In my liars chair
Head full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair

Beneath the stains of time
The memories disappear
You are someone else,
I am still right here

What have I become,
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

And you can have it all,
My empire of dirt
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself,
I would find a way...

Toad The Wet Sprocket - Is There Anyone Out There



A swarm of senses, a shatterstorm
Tangled threads to weave a world
We build defenses and call them homes
Each alive, alert, alone

Is there anyone, is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone, is there anyone out there?
ĎCause I donít know how to reach across the breach
So deep between us
Is there anyone, is there anyone out there
Who feels the way I do?

Uncertain language, imperfect words
How can we expect to speak the truth
I need you closer
I need you still
No matter how I seem to disappear from you

Is there anyone, is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone, is there anyone out there? Iím calling
I donít know how to reach across the breach so deep between us
Is there anyone, is there anyone out there
Who feels the way I do?

The world Iíve seems no-one could ever know
The same as every other one of seven billion souls

Is there anyone, is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone, is there anyone out there? Iím calling
I donít know how to reach across the breach so deep between us
Is there anyone, is there anyone out there?
Who feels the way I do

Travis - Where You Stand



Bumper car me left or right
I'll take a thousand knocks
There's a happy man in there
And you won't blink your eyes
Like all the things you lost before I
Cracked when you left me you know-oh
Like all the things you found
Mmm mmm
Don't taste them just swallow them whole

I forfeit my time
And wait while you make up your mind
So tell me if you ever find your flag
Cause I will be right by you where you stand

Lift me up or tear me down
I'll stand right up again
There's happy soul in there
But you won't let him in
Like all the things we say before we
Crumble and fall to the floor
Like all the things we try
Aye aye
I know where it's headed and so

I forfeit my time
And wait while you re-make up your mind up
So tell me if you ever find your flag
Cause I will be right by you where you stand
Oh I will be right by you where you stand
I will deliver
Where you stand I will not fall
Where you stand there is no ocean
Nor a river, nor a shore

I fall into line
And wait while you make up your mind
So tell me if you ever find your flag

I forfeit my time
And wait while you make up your mind
So tell me if you ever find your flag
Cause I will be right by you where you stand
Oh I will be right by you where you stand
Oh I will be right by you where you stand

R.E.M. - Bittersweet Me



I move across, innocence lost
All flashing pulsar
I move across the earth in my new pattern shirt
I pass satellites

"You're so bitter," your complaint
I can't give you anything
I don't know who you're livin' for
I don't who you are anymore

I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this as bittersweet me

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

I move across, candy floss
I move like a tank
I move across the room with a heart full of gloom
I'm stronger than you think

Oh, my peer, your veneer
Is wearing thin and cracking
The surface informs that underneath
The underneath is lacking

I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this as bittersweet me

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

You move across, innocence lost
All static and desire
You're blue in the face from navel gaze
You set yourself on fire

You strip down and lay yourself out
I know you can't fake it
But are you tired and naked?
Are you tired and naked?

Yeah, I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this as bittersweet me

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

Roy Orbison "In Dreams"

A candy-colored clown they call the Sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper,
"Go to sleep, everything is all right."

I close my eyes and I drift away
Into the magic night I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you

In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk to you
In dreams you're mine all the time
We're together in dreams, in dream

But just before the dawn
I wake and find you gone
I can't help it, I can't help it if I cry
I remember that you said goodbye

Too bad it only seems
It only happens in my dream
Only in dreams
In beautiful dream

This captures the essence alright...the essence of being pissed off. xD

Bloodhound Gang - I Hope You Die

...You must die I alone am best!
I hope ya flip some guy the bird,
He cuts you off and you're forced to swerve,
In front of the Beatles' tour bus,
A Bookmobile and a Mack truck,
Hauling hazardous biological waste,
The light turns red you have no brakes,
And "Hard Copy" gets it all on tape,
So you can see the look on your face,
...Die Die Die Die Die Die Die!,
...Die Die Die Die Die Die Die!,
I hope your Pinto begins to spin,
Takes out a disabled Vietnam Veteran,
Mows down a Nobel Peace Prize Winner,
And maybe some orphans having Christmas dinner,
Perhaps even the British Royal Family,
And the Rabbi that's clutching the bottle-fed puppy,
And we can't forget the newlyweds,
And those Jerry's Kids are as good as dead,
I hope this helps to emphasize,
I hope this helps to clarify,
I hope you die,
I hope your cellmate thinks he's God,
But C.N.N. refer to him as "Bowling Ball Bag Bob",
Serving time again for abuse of a corpse,
Only this time the victim's a Clydesdale horse,
While he masturbates to photos of livestock,
He does the "Silence of the Lambs" dance to Christian Rock,
Eats feces and quotes from "Deliverance",
And fights with his imaginary playmate Vince,
...Die Die Die Die Die Die Die!,
...Die Die Die Die Die Die Die!,
I hope he grins like Jack Nicholson,
And forces you to play a game called Balls On Chin,
And whatever happens next is all a blur,
But you remember "fist" can be a verb,
And when you finally regain consciousness,
You're bound and gagged in a wedding dress,
And the prison guard looks the other way,
'Cause he's the guy ya flipped the bird the other day,
I hope this helps to emphasize,
I hope this helps to clarify,
I hope you die,
...I hope you die!.

"Never Be The Same"

[VERSE 1]
I know you, who are you now?
Look into my eyes if you can't remember.
Do you remember, oh?

I can see, I can still find
You're the only voice my heart can recognize
But I can't hear you now, yeah.

[CHORUS]
I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside the memories, the promises
are yesterdays and I belong to you.
I just can't walk away
'cause after loving you
I can never be the same.

[VERSE 2]
And how can I pretend I've never known you?
Like it was all a dream, no.
I know I'll never forget
the way I always felt with you beside me
and how you loved me then, yeah.

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
You led me here,
then I watched you disappear.
You left this emptiness inside
and I can't turn back time
No, stay!
Nothing compares to you.
Nothing compares to you.
I can't let you go,
Can't let you go.
I can't let go.

I'll never be the same,
not after loving you,
not after loving you, no.

[CHORUS]

I can never be the same.
I will never be the same.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
I just can't walk away.
No, I can't walk away from you.

Strap yourself into the rocket now, rocket now.
Watch as the countdown seconds tick by.
Hope and pray that you'll make it now, make it now.
You'll never know if you don't try...

Strap yourself into the rocket now, rocket now.
You've got your friends right by your side.
 Final checks then you close your eyes.
Your dream fighting like a rocket inside

Like a rocket inside.

Live - Dance With You



sittin' on the beach
the island king of love
deep in fijian seas
deep in some blissful dream
where the goddess finally sleeps
in the lap of her lover
subdued in all her rage
and I am aglow with the taste
of the demons driven out
and happily replaced
with the presence of real love
the only one who saves

I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
the karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
and lead us back to a world we would not face

the stillness in your eyes
convinces me that I
I don't know a thing
and I been around the world and I've
tasted all the wines
a half a billion times
came sickened to your shores
you show me what this life is for

I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
the karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
and lead us back to a world we would not face

in this altered state
full of so much pain and rage
you know we got to find a way to let it go

sittin' on the beach
the island king of love
deep in fijian seas
deep in the heart of it all
where the goddess finally sleeps
after eons of war and lifetimes
she smilin' and free, nothin' left
but a cracking voice and a song, oh lord

I wanna dance with you
i see a world where people live and die with grace
the karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
i see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
and lead us back to a world we would not face
we would not face
we would not face
we would not face
we would not face

Sugar - She Wants Revenge

I tried to tell you, but you just wouldn't hear me
Now it's hard to find the words to explain
You're pushing forward while I'm pushing away
I think it's time we set some rules to this game

And she carries on
She carries on
She carries on, in her own way

Looking for differences while you seek affection
Now I think it's time that we should be friends
Make me your enemy if that makes it easier
For you to finally see it's the end

Then she carries on
She carries on
She carries on, in her own way

Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Would you take me with you, I'm all alone
Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Please just take me with you, I'm all alone

Holding me hostage with the motions and tears
Wearing me down until I've lost my resolve
In the morning when I break from these chains
You act surprised, as if our problems were solved

Then she carries on
She carries on
She carries on, in her own way

Pack my bags and set them right by the door
And cross my fingers as I head back inside
I never meant to break your spirit, and sure
There'll be regrets, but first I'll need to survive

And we'll carry on
We'll carry on
We'll carry on, in our own ways

Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Would you take me with you, I'm all alone
Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Please just take me with you, I'm all alone

I'm only asking because I'm
Broken and tattered in two
I'm only asking because I'm
Simply enamored with you

I'm only asking because I'm
Broken and tattered in two
I'm only asking because I'm
Simply enamored with you

Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Would you take me with you, I'm all alone
Sugar don't you forget me, I'm only asking
Please just take me with you, I'm all alone

I'm all alone

Staind - Everything Changes

If you just walked away
What could I really say?
Would it matter anyway?
Would it change how you feel?

I am the mess you chose
The closet you can not close
The devil in you, I suppose
'Cause the wounds never heal

But everything changes if I could
Turn back the years if you could
Learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel

Sometimes the things I say
In moments of disarray
Succumbing to the games we play
To make sure that it's real

And everything changes if I could
Turn back the years if you could
Learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel

When it's just me and you
Who knows what we could do?
If we can just make it through
The toughest part of the day

But everything changes if I could
Turn back the years if you could
Learn to forgive me
Then I could learn how to feel

Then we could stay here together
And we could conquer the world
If we could say that forever
Is more than just a word

If you just walked away
What could I really say?
And would it matter anyway?
It wouldn't change how you feel

PrinceWhateverer ~ Between Fairytales and Happy Endings

I use to be the one...
Stuck on the sidelines.
But lately things had started to change...

I would've never thought.
That being the way I am.
Could make everything end up this way.

This is never what I would've expected.
There's nothing wrong but they still want me corrected.
Why can't you just let me do what I do...
I'm not hurting anyone so why are you..

Why are you?

How could you try and change who I've always been.
What did I do wrong?
I've never wanted any of this.

I'm sorry if I ever offended any of you...
But I am who I am.
There's not much more that I could do.

A wise man once said that friendship was magic.
The way I see it, it's been nothing but tragic.
I tried my best and it wasn't quite there...
A fairytale but no happy ending for this mare.

-Guitar Solo-

I just don't know what went wrong.
They don't love me anymore...
So... So long.

Now I'm left out on my own.
Wish there were somewhere for me...
To call home.

Is it not enough that I'm in the background?
You want to drop me big cause how my voice sounds?
I apologize if I ever made you sad...
But I will not be sorry for being who I am.

This is who I am...

How could you try and change who I've always been.
What did I do wrong?
I've never wanted any of this.

I'm sorry if I ever offended any of you...
But I am who I am.
There's not much more that I could do.

A wise man once said that friendship was magic.
The way I see it, it's been nothing but tragic.
I tried my best and it wasn't quite there...
A fairytale but no happy ending for this mare.

-instrumental build-up to a fast pace song instead of slow one and drums finally start at this point-

How could you try and change who I've always been!
What did I do wrong?
I've never wanted any of this!

I'm sorry if I ever offended any of you!
But I am who I am!
There's not much more that I could do!

A wise man once said that friendship was magic!
The way I see it, it's been nothing but tragic!
I tried my best and it wasn't quite there!
So will there ever be a happy ending for this mare?

Lyrics

Weak at the knees in the mouth of the beast with a fist in the air I march on / For the hunter is hunted its sword has been blunted by echoes of hunger in song / Itís blinded by lust from an ultimate plain in a castle that lives in the sky / My mission at hand is to murder its plan and bring down the all Seeing Eye / Together we stand in a fight for the right to be free from the lies and deceit / Our brains have been washed and our souls have been lost yet we will not back down or retreat / They will not give up it is obvious so we will unite with our consciousness / And eventually were going to repossess the freedoms we had while we clean the mess / Now as I stare into space I can see the stress on the physical plane of our consciousness / The things that we want we can manifest all we need is to focus / In the land of dreams itís an endless sea where the conscious breathe for eternity / We can all unite there collectively but we need is to believe its easy / Cos there are too many minds that are waking up and there are too many lies in the media / And now the youth of our culture is shaping up to be the spiritual army who will fight ya / But if we believe the world is gonna end then we can make it happen so donít pretend / That itís not up to you and youíve got no control, the power lives within your soul / Gaze at the Earth from a Distance / Canít you see that we are one itís obvious / Gaze at the Earth from a Distance / We can all unite with our consciousness / Suspended in time in this universe / Gaze at the Earth from a distance / We can all unite / We can all unite

I love this song, very much.


Wolf's Rain - Gravity



Been a long road to follow,
Been there and gone tomorrow,
Without saying goodbye to yesterday

Are the memories I hold still valid?
Or have the tears deluded them?

Maybe this time tomorrow,
The rain will cease to follow,
And the mist will fade into one more today

Something somewhere out there keeps calling
Am I going home?
Will I hear someone
Singing solace to the silent moon?

Zero gravity
What's it like? (Am I alone?)

Is somebody there beyond these heavy aching feet?
Still the road keeps on telling me to go on...

Something is pulling me
I feel the gravity of it all

Lucky meóno one's yet posted a Tool song (currently my favourite band).


(This version has an interpretation of the lyrics and some artwork of Alex Grey, who designed a lot of artwork for two of the band's albums and has also collaborated with guitarist Danny Carey on some of their music videos.)


Tool, 'Forty-Six & 2' (∆nema, 1996)

Join in my...
Join in my child
And listen:
Digging through
My old numb shadow.

My shadow's
Shedding skin.
I've been picking
Scabs again.
I'm down,
Digging through
My old muscles
Looking for a clue.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own confused
And insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
Or a word to guide me in.
I wanna feel the changes coming down.
I wanna know what I've been hiding in...

My shadow...
My shadow...
Change is coming through my shadow.
My shadow's
Shedding skin.
I've been picking
My scabs again.

Join in my...
Join in my child.
My shadow moves
Closer to meaning.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own chaotic
And insecure delusions.

I wanna feel the change consume me,
Feel the outside turning in.
I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
Cleansing I've endured within.

My shadow...
My shadow...
Change is coming:
Now is my time.
Listen to my muscle memory.
Contemplate what I've been clinging to.
Forty-six and two ahead of me.

I
Choose to live and to
Grow,
Take and give and to
Move,
Learn and love and to
Cry,
Kill and die and to
Be
Paranoid and to
Lie,
Hate and fear and to
Do,
What it takes to move through.

I
Choose to live and to
Lie
Kill and give and to
Die
Learn and love and to
Do
What it takes to step through.

See my shadow changing,
Stretching up and over me.
Soften this old armour.
Hoping I can clear the way by
Stepping through my shadow,
Coming out the other side.
Step into the shadow.
Forty-six and two are just ahead of me.

Halestorm - I Am The Fire

Am I brave enough?
Am I strong enough?
To follow the desire
That burns from within
To push away my fear
To stand where I'm afraid
I am through with this
Cuz I am more than this
I promise to myself
Alone and no one else
My flame is rising higher

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire

I've been sacrificed
My Hearts been cauterized
Hanging on to hope
Shackled by the ghost
Of what I once believed
That I could never be
What's right in front of me?

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire

I don't believe I'll fall from grace
Won't let the past decide my fate
Leave forgiveness in my wake
Take the love that I've embraced

I promise to myself, me and no one else
I am more than this
I am the fire...

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
