CHURCH STREET BLUES - TONY RICE:

Lord I been hangin' out of town in that low down rain
Watchin' good time Charlie friend is drivin' me insane
Down on shady Charlotte Street the green lights look red
Wish I was back home on the farm in my feather bed

And I got myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
Them thin dimes, hard times
Hell on Church Street blues

Found myself a picker friend who's read yesterday's news
Folded up page twenty-one and stuck it in my shoe
Gave a nickle to the poor my good turn for the day
Folded up my own little folder and threw it far away

And I got myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
Them thin dimes, hard times
Hell on Church Street blues

Lord I wish I had some guitar strings ol' Black Diamond brand
I'd string up this ol' Martin box and go and join some band
But I guess I'll stay right here just pick and sing a while
Try to make me a little change and give you folks a smile

And I got myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
Them thin dimes, hard times
Hell on Church Street blues

And I got myself a rockin' chair
To see if I can lose
Them thin dimes, hard times
Hell on Church Street blues

Bad Omens - Said and Done


Old friend, don't you see me
With my soul on my sleeve and my heart left to beat
Underground, don't you leave me
With the hope and belief that you're coming for me

Was I not good enough? Worthy of being loved?
Were you ashamed or just afraid?
Well when I've given up and all is said and done
Will you just look the other way?

Was I not good enough? Worthy of being loved?
Were you ashamed or just afraid?
Well when I've given up and all is said and done
Will you just look the other way?

Half dead, barely breathing
Fell apart just to keep my head up in one piece
'Til I'm found, well I'm sinking
To the floor of the sea where you want me to be

Was I not good enough? Worthy of being loved?
Were you ashamed or just afraid?
Well when I've given up and all is said and done
Will you just look the other way?

Was I not good enough? Worthy of being loved?
Were you ashamed or just afraid?
Well when I've given up and all is said and done
Will you just look the other way?

I waited but nobody called
I waited for nothing at all

Was I not good enough? Worthy of being loved?
Were you ashamed or just afraid?
Well when I've given up and all is said and done
Will you just look the other way?

Was I not good enough? Worthy of being loved?
Were you ashamed or just afraid?
Well when I've given up and all is said and done
Will you just look the other way?

I waited but nobody called
I waited for nothing at all

I'd rather die young than die alone
Overdosing to songs you wrote
Poise and potions is all I know
When the world's a stage and I'm just a show

Life During Wartime - Talking Heads

Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons,
Packed up and ready to go
Heard of some grave sites, out by the highway,
A place where nobody knows

The sound of gunfire, off in the distance,
I'm getting used to it now
Lived in a brownstone, lived in a ghetto,
I've lived all over this town

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
This ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey,
I ain't got time for that now

Transmit the message, to the receiver,
Hope for an answer some day
I got three passports, a couple of visas,
You don't even know my real name

High on a hillside, the trucks are loading,
Everything's ready to roll
I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nighttime,
I might not ever get home

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
This ain't no fooling around
This ain't no Mudd Club, or C. B. G. B.,
I ain't got time for that now

Heard about Houston? Heard about Detroit?
Heard about Pittsburgh, P. A.?
You oughta know not to stand by the window
Somebody see you up there

I got some groceries, some peanut butter,
To last a couple of days
But I ain't got no speakers, ain't got no headphones,
Ain't got no records to play

Why stay in college? Why go to night school?
Gonna be different this time
Can't write a letter, can't send no postcard,
I ain't got time for that now

Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock,
We blended in with the crowd
We got computers, we're tapping phone lines,
I know that that ain't allowed

We dress like students, we dress like housewives,
Or in a suit and a tie
I changed my hairstyle, so many times now,
I don't know what I look like!

You make me shiver, I feel so tender,
We make a pretty good team
Don't get exhausted, I'll do some driving,
You ought to get you some sleep

Burned all my notebooks, what good are notebooks?
They won't help me survive
My chest is aching, burns like a furnace,
The burning keeps me alive
 
Guano Apes - Close to the Sun

We were glowing
Like a flame
Under cover night and day
You took me up so high
It felt like a paradise
Breathing you and breathing you out
We fell like shooting stars
Like we went up too far
Nowhere to go but down

It was so beautiful
Before the fall
I'm flying too close to the sun
It was so beautiful
Before the fall
I'm flying too close to the sun
I was all yours
I felt the earth turn
Shooting so high
We had to get burnt
It was so beautiful
Before the fall
I'm flying too close
I'm flying too close to the sun
Yeah! Ey!

Oh I miss you
Missing me
And all the things we'll
Never be
You took me up so high
It felt like a paradise
Breathing you and breathing you out
We fell like shooting stars
Like we went up too far
Nowhere to go but down

It was so beautiful
Before the fall
I'm flying too close to the sun
It was so beautiful
Before the fall
I'm flying too close to the sun
I was all yours
I felt the earth turn
Shooting so high
We had to get burnt

It was so beautiful
Before the fall
I'm flying too close
I'm flying too close to the sun
You've written in my heart
I'll always remember you
Remember me
Together but apart
I'll always remember you
You set me free, oh
Oh, whoah!

It was so, so
I was all yours
I felt the earth turn
Shooting so high
We had to get burnt

Here Comes the Rain Again

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do
Walk with me
Like lovers do
Talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion
Oh
I want to breathe in the open wind
I want to kiss like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
(Here is comes again, here it comes again)
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

Ooh here comes again
Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion (ooh ooh yeah)
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion

Landslide

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
'Til the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Mmm

Well, I've been 'fraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm gettin' older, too

Well, I've been 'fraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm gettin' older, too
I'm gettin' older, too

Ah, take my love, take it down
Oh, climb a mountain and turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down
Oh, the landslide will bring it down

Look up here, I'm in heaven
I've got scars that can't be seen
I've got drama, can't be stolen
Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I'm in danger
I've got nothing left to lose
I'm so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain't that just like me?

By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
Then I used up all my money
I was looking for your ass
This way or no way
You know, I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now ain't that just like me?
Oh I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh I'll be free
Ain't that just like me?

Kublai Khan - True Fear


There's no justice. Am I crazy?
To think that all this is crazy?
Another march for a nation that's hurting
Pain pushed back like the force you're exerting
There's nothing to say
When people are killed daily
By cops with a hard on for violence
Mad cause I'm yelling, I'm mad cause you're silent

Stay calm
Don't breathe or you might get beat to ****ing ****
Right hand on his right hip
Thumb resting on the pistol grip
Do you even speak English?
Are your tattoos gang affiliated?
No I just wanna get home
Searched my ****. Let me go
(And to think I had it easy)

So I'll tell you
If you ask me
If I have doubts
Trusting the police

Look around you
Unarmed men shot in cold blood
While a kid with a dime bag
Serves more time than a rapist
What kind of lie are we living
(What kind of lie are we living)
When so few are protecting and serving

People protesting
Against the ones protecting
It's a ****ing red flag
It's a sign of the struggles they've had

**** those who kill

Every time I see an officer behind me
I can't help but view them as an enemy
True fear systematically
Time's up, you ****ing cowards

I Won't Back Down

Well, I won't back down
No, I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

No, I'll stand my ground
Won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground
And I won't back down

I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
I won't back down
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground
And I won't back down

I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
I won't back down
Hey, I will stand my ground
(I won't back down)
And I won't back down

I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
I won't back down
Hey, I won't back down

I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
I won't back down
Hey, I will stand my ground
(I won't back down)
And I won't back down

Knocked Loose - Mistakes Like Fractures


The light is stopped by the tree line
And I am chained to the ground
I see the horns in the tall grass
They still follow me around

Mistakes like fractures
Hiding underneath the skin
Mistakes like fractures
Buried underneath the weight of sin

I will atone
For the things I've done here
And God only knows
That it's all stuck in my head

God fell silent
When I cried out

I cry out

I cry out for an ending
An escape that is over due
Faced with the final judgement
No hand to pull me through

Mistakes like fractures
Hiding underneath the skin
Mistakes like fractures
Buried under all my sin

I followed the rabbit
And I found my ****ing ending

I see the horns
They follow me down
God fell silent
When I cried out

Save Me - Skillet

This is the place that no one sees
I don't like to show
This is the darkness over me
It's just the world I know

Reachin' for the light
Reachin' from inside
Help me tonight

I'm closer to the edge (Tonight)
I'm standin' on the ledge (So why)
Won't you reach out your hand
To save (To save), to save me? (Tonight)

I'm damaged if you dare (Tonight)
It feels like no one cares (So why)
Can't I come up for air?
Just save (Just save), just save me

What are you waitin' for?
Someone save me

Peel back the skin, exposed to you
Take pleasure in the pain (Please don't stop it)
Tell me what I'm supposed to do
It ain't easy to open up this way

Reachin' for the light
Reachin' from inside
Help me tonight

I'm closer to the edge (Tonight)
I'm standin' on the ledge (So why)
Won't you reach out your hand
To save (To save), to save me? (Tonight)

I'm damaged if you dare (Tonight)
It feels like no one cares (So why)
Can't I come up for air?
Just save (Just save), just save me

What are you waitin' for?

Reachin' from inside
Help me tonight

I'm closer to the edge (Tonight)

The Clansman - Iron Maiden:

Wake alone in the hills
With the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud
And be part of a race that is part of a clan
That lives on the highlands
And the air that you breathe
So pure and so clean

When alone on the hills
With the wind in your hair
And a longing to feel
Just to be free

Is it right to believe
In the need to be free
It's a time when you die
And without asking why
Can't you see what they do
They are grinding us down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am the clansman

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

It's a time wrought with fear
It's a land wrought with change
If our ancestors could hear what is happening now
They would turn in their graves
And they would all be ashamed
The land of the free is written in chains

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

And I swear to defend
I'll fight to the end
Know that I'll never be taken alive
I know that we'll stand
And I'll fight for the land
I swear that my bairns
Will be born free

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
We're the land of the free

No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
We're the land of the free

No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
We're the land of the free

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

It's a time wrought with fear
It's a land wrought with change
If our ancestors could hear what is happening now
They would turn in their graves
And they would all be ashamed
The land of the free is written in chains

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman....
