    Share the joy folks! :D

    Levellers - Elation

    Oh there was once a man who had lost his own smile
    And he wandered the country mile after mile
    Never quite knowing what he wanted to find
    For his heart it lay heavy with the weight of his mind

    And he looked at the land through the tears in his eyes,
    For he knew that there were those who would will her to die.
    And he wept for his mother as he lay at her feet,
    And he heard a voice singing him softly to sleep,

    [Chorus]
    I'll be your queen, I'll be your mother, I'll be your mystical child,
    Be your best friend, your lover, Your wife for all time.
    Will there ever be another, in this life of mine,
    Will there ever be another, like my mystical child.

    So he climbed a high hill and he looked out to sea,
    And he heard a voice calling out softly to him,
    Open your heart boy for it needs to be free,
    And the next time you’re crying come running to me.

    [Chorus]

    So he walked through the valleys the trees and the fields,
    And he came to a river where she waited for him,
    And they looked at the water of life flowing by,
    And he heard a voice saying, 'You’re not alone in the fight',

    [Chorus]

    Oxy Cotton



    [Lil' Wyte]
    Go on and slip me two Xanax Bars - I'm ready ta git fool
    5th ta Crown ta wash it down, I'm downtown snapping rolls
    Ain't no shame up in my game - infact I'm mentally duranged
    Oxy Cotton in my system - man I'm feeling kinda strange
    Watch me choke about this dope - Blueberry from Texas
    You wanna git up in rotation thats too bad cuz I'm stressing
    'Bout now its 1:30 am - 11 Percocets just entered me
    15 minutes from this second - I'll be crawling on my knees
    Laughing at the crowd of all the clowns that be surrounding me
    Take another Lortab ta calm me down and let me see
    Body be relaxed - muscles be loose, and you have stopped the pain
    No more bitching 'bout your day and work and driving in the rain
    Put up wit' the fussing and discussion - I plant in your brain
    Hypnotize ya minds, like all the rest but I come through the veins
    Take a chill pill ta slow me down and git back in this game
    Gatta be up on ya P's and Q's ta even feel it man

    (Hook 2x - [Lil' Wyte])
    Oxy Cotton - Xanax Bars - Percocet and Lortab
    Valiums - Morphine - patches - Exctacy - and it's all up for grab
    What'cha want - what'cha need - hit me up I got you man
    What'cha want - what'cha need - hit me up I got you man

    [Lord Infamous]
    Scarecrow, scarecrow whats that you popping?
    A powerful pill they call Oxy Cotton
    But it'so tiny, yea it got you dragging
    Haven't you heard big things come in small packages
    I prefer the orange's with the black O-C
    Take 2 and you can't move up out your seat
    Some people melt them down in a needle and shoot 'em up
    But I pop 'em with seroquel like glue, I am stuck

    [Crunchy Blac]
    See I'ma pill popper - so I'ma keep poppin' em
    Gimme 20 Xanax and I'ma start droppin' em
    They ain't no stoppin' him - when they in my system
    Might not really miss 'em - can you help me get 'em
    I heard you have Clidina, on that fucking pill shed
    Gimme some fuckn Ec' - gimme some Percocets
    I need me some footballs, so I can break down
    Cuz a nigga like me 'finna take it ta fight now

    (Hook 2x - [Lil' Wyte])
    Oxy Cotton - Xanax Bars - Percocet and Lortab
    Valiums - Morphine - patches - Ecstacy - and it's all up for grab
    What'cha want - what'cha need - hit me up I got you man
    What'cha want - what'cha need - hit me up I got you man

    Aww hell, and I was gonna some day, you know, when there are flying pink elephants, get around to starting this topic.

    Shoulda just gone with the guy walking on water portent...that's a done deal...

    So, here's me first :)

    Foo Fighters - Times Like These

    I am a one way motorway
    I'm the one that drives away
    then follows you back home
    I am a street light shining
    I'm a wild light blinding bright
    burning off alone

    it's times like these you learn to live again
    it's times like these you give and give again
    it's times like these you learn to love again
    it's times like these time and time again

    I am a new day rising
    I'm a brand new sky
    to hang the stars upon tonight
    I am a little divided
    do I stay or run away
    and leave it all behind?

    it's times like these you learn to live again
    it's times like these you give and give again
    it's times like these you learn to love again
    it's times like these time and time again

    Short and sweet, but it speaks to me. The acoustic version rocks.

    future breed machine by meshuggah :headbang:

    an even stobe a pulse of flashing
    hatelights of synthetic souls massproduced
    hammered to shaped a sign of times dreams
    turn into systems a new way a new breed
    implanted in our minds

    here i am in the hand of a sterile hate the
    new control i can not wake i'm not a sleep

    new intelligence arise in emptied bodies
    turgid flesh tested through eternal spastic
    fits through not known codes mother
    machine in genocide now scorn a dying race

    evolution in reverse now it's time for me
    changing what am i to be contorted an
    eternity defeated

    programmed to appease you we're symbols of
    perfection humanoids runed by your laws :
    destroy erase improve lesson first :
    submission we're docile servant dogs our
    leashes are your limbs computed deep
    within

    remoted minds controlled our thoughts no
    more doubts the new way is here disgorged

    another thousands fakes that obey to a

    circuit skein to vacuum

    mechanical thoughts i now concieve no
    longer me always to see inanity millions
    to be units like me eternally human
    patterns copied dissected distorted
    completed to fit the machine the nerve
    fibres give in to cords to the unknown

    see me be me same contents same machine

    the currency of ours no more flesh and bone
    we are to unaware of what we have been
    before

    evolution in reverse now it's time for me
    changing what am i to be contorted an
    eternity defeated by the new machine

    Levellers - Just the One

    Do you fancy a drink
    Just the one
    To clear your head
    We won't be long
    It's a beautiful day
    To waste away
    There's plenty of time
    For another one

    [Chorus]
    You know you shouldn't do it
    But can't see no reason why
    So blow your mind

    Make mine a short
    I'm getting there
    But where there is
    I couldn't care
    There must be something
    I haven't tried
    Perhaps that bottle before my eyes

    [Chorus]

    Through the haze
    The sun goes down
    It's getting late
    Let's hit the town
    Call some friends
    To paint it red
    Feed the animal
    In your head

    [Chorus]

    They throw you out
    You hit the night
    Go to a club
    You feel alright
    You get a pill
    Take just half
    Then take the rest of it
    For a laugh

    [Chorus]

    Across the floor
    You think you see
    The one of your dreams
    Your fantasy
    But that last drink
    Has made you blind
    You need the bar
    But it's hard to find

    [Chorus]

    It's a brand new game
    You want to try,
    You line them up
    And it's the first to die
    You think you've won
    but it's time to leave
    And it's back to yours
    for a cup of tea

    [Chorus]

    You find your keys
    And you all fall in
    You spend an hour
    And search your skins
    When all seems lost
    And it's looking grim
    You find the bottle
    Of christmas gin

    [Chorus]

    The rest is blank
    And that's the worst
    An empty head
    For an empty purse
    You had a laugh
    Or so you think
    But in the morning
    You just stink

    So you fancy a drink
    It's just the one
    To clear your head
    We won't be long

    Here's the whole song, but it's the chorus that I love...

    Outside - Staind

    and you bring me to my knees
    all this time that i
    all the times that i felt insecure
    and i leave my burdens at the door

    i'm on the outside
    i'm looking in
    i can see through you
    see your true colors
    inside you're ugly
    ugly like me
    i can see through you
    see to the real you

    all this time that i felt like this won't end
    was for you
    and i taste what i could never have
    it's from you
    all those times that i tried
    my intentions
    full of pride
    and i waste more time than anyone

    i'm on the outside
    i'm looking in
    i can see through you
    see your true colors
    cause inside you're ugly
    ugly like me
    i can see through you
    see to the real you

    all the times that i cried
    all this wasting
    it's all inside
    and i feel all this pain
    stuffed it down
    it's back again
    and i lie here in bed
    all alone
    i can't help what i feel
    tomorrow will be okay

    i'm on the outside
    i'm looking in
    i can see through you
    see your true colors
    inside you're ugly
    ugly like me
    i can see through you
    see to the real you

    Oasis - Songbird

    Talking to the songbird yesterday
    Flew me to a past not far away
    She's a little pirate in my mind
    Singing songs of love to pass the time

    Gonna write a song so she can see
    Give her all the love she gives to me
    Talk of better days that have yet to come
    Never felt this love from anyone

    She's not anyone
    She's not anyone
    She's not anyone

    A man can never dream these kind of things
    Especially when she came and spread her wings
    Whispered in my ear the things I'd like
    Then she flew away into the night

    Gonna write a song so she can see
    Give her all the love she gives to me
    Talk of better days that have yet to come
    Never felt this love from anyone

    She's not anyone
    She's not anyone
    She's not anyone

    Aerosmith - Walk This Way

    Backstroke lover always hidin' 'neath the covers
    Till I talked to your daddy he say
    He said you ain't seen nothin' till you're down on a muffin
    Then you're sure to be a changin' your ways
    I met a cheerleader was a real young bleeder
    Oh the times I could reminisce
    'Cause the best things of lovin' with her sister and her cousin
    Only started with a little kiss
    Like this

    Seesaw swingin' with the boys in the school
    And your feet flyin' up in the air
    Singin' hey diddle diddle
    With your kitty in the middle of the swing like you didn't care
    So I took a big chance at the high school dance
    With a missy who was ready to play
    Wasn't me she was foolin' 'cause she knew what she was doin'
    And I knowed love was here to stay
    When she told me to

    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way

    Just gimme a kiss
    Like this

    Schoolgirl sweetie with a classy kinda sassy
    Little skirt's climbin' way up the knee
    There was three young ladies in the school gym locker
    When I noticed they was lookin' at me
    I was a high school loser never made it with a lady
    Till the boys told me somethin' I missed
    Then my next door neighbor with a daughter had a favor
    So I gave her just a little kiss
    Like this

    Seesaw swingin' with the boys in the school
    And your feet flyin' up in the air
    Singin' hey diddle diddle
    With your kitty in the middle of the swing like you didn't care
    So I took a big chance at the high school dance
    With a missy who was ready to play
    Wasn't me she was foolin' 'cause she knew what she was doin'
    When she told me how to walk this way
    She told me to

    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way
    Walk this way

    Just gimme a kiss

    AFI : MALLEUS MALEFICARUM

    Open my eyes as i submerge
    and i won't deny what i've been since birth.
    i'll die drowned by your standards.

    breathe in the life of the summer's death
    as the orange and red breathe their first breath,
    so welcome as they're buring thru.

    we all begin to burn.
    autumn's flame dances in my eyes.
    set alight for all we've learned
    my ashes falling...

    my skin is singed but it heals my heart
    and with glowing pride i'll wear my scars.
    i'm honored by your hatred.

    leaves fall, we rise again
    and the end impending it will begin,
    so welcome as it's burning thru.

    we all begin to burn.
    autumn's flame dances in my eyes.
    set alight for all we've learned
    my ashes falling...

    ashes fall as i'm rising up again.
    fall, fall, ashes fall and we all arise.

    AFI : MORNINGSTAR

    i saw a star beneath the stairs
    glowing thru the melting walls
    who will be the first to begin their fall?
    or will we become one?

    am i the star beneath the stairs?
    am i the ghost upon the stage?
    am i your anything?

    i saw a star beneath the stairs
    glowing bright before descent
    and in the morning, there is nothing left
    but what's inside of me.

    am i the star beneath the stairs?
    am i the ghost upon the stage?
    am i your anything?

    and i dont want to die tonight,
    will you believe in me?
    and i dont want to fall into the light.

    will you wish upon?
    will you walk upon me?
    i dont want to die tonight...

    will you believe in me toniiiiiiiiiiight????
    am i the star beneath the stairs?
    am i the ghost upon the stage?
    am i your anything?
    am i the star beneath the stairs?
    am i the ghost upon the stage?
    am i your anything?

    Levellers - Another Mans Cause

    Gunshots shatter the peace of night
    It's just another fire fight
    For the people of this little town
    But for the dying soldier
    He's feeling ten years older
    And he's lying face down on the ground
    All the words that are in his head
    Are all the words his mother said
    As she would put him to bed back home

    [Chorus]
    Your daddy died in the last war
    Fighting for another man's cause
    And your brother he was killed in the Falklands
    Now your mother's lying home alone

    Every day she sees his face
    On the picture on the fireplace
    With your brother as he was leaving school
    Then a day came five years ago
    You said, "Mother, I need to know"
    And you spoke the words your brother spoke before
    "I know the things my Daddy´s done
    I've seen the medals that he´s won
    And I know that this is what he would have wanted for me."

    CHORUS

    And now she wonders at it all
    How many more are going to answer the call
    To fight and die in another country's war
    To die for a religion they have never believed in at all
    To die in a place they never should have been at all
    No, never been at all

    CHORUS

    Deftones - "Minerva"

    I get all...numb
    When she sings it's over
    Such a strange numb
    And it brings my knees to the earth

    And God bless you all
    For the song you saved us...

    You're the same...numb
    When you sing it's over
    Such a strange numb
    It could bring back peace to the earth

    So God bless you all
    For the song you saved us...oh...
    For the hearts you break, everytime you moan...

    I get all...numb
    We're the same numb
    And it brings our knees to the earth

    So God bless you all
    For the song you saved us..oh...
    For the hearts you break, everytime you moan
    And God bless you all on the earth...

    When I saw who started this thread I knew it would deffo have someLevellers in it. Where's One Day then hun?

    Hope St- Levellers

    There's a young boy in the queue
    Not much else for him to do
    He's had a drink, he's had a few
    Down the pub on Hope Street

    Dear old lady, you're looking thin
    Got a shopping bag with your life in
    Your old man's going through the bins
    It's down and outs on Hope Street

    Rain on me come pouring down
    Clean the dirt off this old town
    Tell the sun to come around
    And show his face on Hope Street

    There's a fight right down the street
    The betting shop has got him beat
    Blew his money for the week
    On a horse called Hope Street

    No old faces out today
    Someone took them all away
    Cleaning up or so they say
    The dirty face of Hope Street

    Rain on me come pouring down...

    Everyday I look at you
    Dressed up in your ties of blue
    Saying there's not much you can do
    To help the kids on Hope Street

    They don't seem to even care
    That it was you that put them there
    You seem to think they like it there
    Hanging out on Hope Street

    Rain on me come pouring down...

    I'm waking up and bakin'
    Watching the parade cause today's the day I got over you
    Taking out the trash and the pictures that I stashed
    Of the two of us in 1992
    You stole my heart when Eddie Veder was king
    I gave you a foot massage I gave you my ring
    You left me for a drummer cause you said I couldn't sing
    But, That's ok

    [CHORUS]

    Cause there'll be
    No more mountain climbing in the rain
    No more Long hair clogging up the drain
    No more Life will never be the same
    Life after Lisa is not so bad at all
    Saw you with the dude who gave us our first tattoos
    Did he cover up my name that was fast
    Can you believe that I'm alive, still not working 9 to 5
    And my little band is kicking some ass
    So when you asked me if I hated you now
    It's not you it's just all of the times I missed out
    On sleeping with your roommate every time you passed out
    But, That's ok

    [CHORUS]

    I'll bet you're saying to yourself that you'll find somebody else like me
    But all I've gotta say is there ain't no fucking way that you're getting me to say
    I'm sorry..........No today!!!

    [CHORUS]

    Cleaning up the house again
    Listening to House Of Pain
    Having headaches in my brain
    Listening to you complain
    Shopping at the mall again
    I'm out of rhymes I've gotta say
    Life after Lisa is not so bad at all!!!!
