Lyrics are an important part of a song. Without lyrics, a song would be boring (with a few exceptions). What's your favorite lyrics from any song? Here's mine...

from: "Airplanes II" from B.o.B ft Hayley Williams & Eminem

(bridge between hook & Eminem's verse)
(2x) And it seems like yesterday,
it was just a dream,
but those days were gone,
they're just memories

what about you?

Not every song needs lyrics. Souljah Boy made Turn My Swag On, which was an absolutely terrible song, quite similar to his usual work. But the instrumental was straight fire.

Instrumentals...boring?


Anyway, I'll edit this post tomorrow as I'm tired, but my favorite song has some of the best lyrics ever and I'll just paste 'em here with a link.

Harmlessly passing your time
In the grassland away
Only dimly aware of
A certain unease in the air
You better watch out
There may be dogs about
I've looked over Jordan
And I have seen
Things are not what they seem

What do you get
For pretending the danger's not real?
Meek and obedient
You follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors
Into the valley of steel
What a surprise
A look of terminal shock in your eyes
Now things are really what they seem
No
This is no bad dream

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green
He leadeth me the silent waters by
With bright knives
He releaseth my soul
He maketh me to hang
On hooks in high places
He converteth me to lamb cutlets
For lo
He hath great power
And great hunger
When cometh the day we lowly ones
Through quiet reflection
And great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo
We shall rise up
And then we'll make
The bugger's eyes water

Bleating and babbling
We fell on his neck with a scream
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
March cheerfully out of obscurity
Into the dream

Have you heard the news?
The dogs are dead
You better stay home
And do as you're told
Get out of the road
If you want to grow old


I'll edit this with some more lyrics from different artists later.

EDIT:
Maver with her lucky bonnet
She used to paint her flowers on it
She keeps her memories on the turnstile
'Cause she's superstitious
She thought she'd be famous
And tell me if I'm wrong
But I think she still just likes to play them
Yeah and maybe you'll be lucky enough
To hear her sing on Sunday
Oh Maver

Maver in a bonnet
Streaks of life upon it
Betting on the ponies
So things could get easier
Just praying on a easy peace for her
Oh Maver

She was a true blue blooded traveler
She left her home post for the West Coast
With a guitar and a bar of soap for 'ol San Francisco
And a fool-hearted head of hope
Well she landed in a flat
With some fellas who were lucky to meet her
'Cause she could play the six-string better than
Those macho pendejos
Oh Maver

Maver in a bonnet
Streaks of life upon it
Betting on the ponies
So things could get easier
Just praying on a easy peace for her
Oh Maver

How many nights did you make it without it?
Oh
How many lines on your face have paved your way in stone?
Oh

How many nights did you make it without it?
Oh
How many lines on your face have paved your way in stone?
Oh

Maver in a bonnet
Streaks of life upon it
Betting on the ponies
So things could get easier
Just praying on a easy peace for her
Oh Maver
Oh Maver
Oh Maver



Blackout
Heatwave
.44 caliber homicide
The bums drop dead and the dogs go mad
In packs on the West Side
Young girl standing on a ledge looks like another suicide
She wants to hit those bricks
'Cause the news at six gotta stick to a deadline

While the millionaires hide in Beekman Place
The bag ladies throw their bones in my face
I get attacked by a kid with stereo sound
I don't want to hear it but he won't turn it down
Life is tough but it's just enough
To hold back the tears until it's closing time

I survived
I'm still alive
But I'm getting close to the borderline
Close to the borderline

A buck three eighty
Won't buy you much lately on the street these days
And when you can get gas
You know you can't drive fast anymore on the parkways
Rich man
Poor man
Either way American
Shoved into the lost and found
The no nuke's yell we're gonna all go to hell
With the next big meltdown

I got remote control and a color TV
I don't change channels so they must change me
I got real close friends that'll get me high
They don't know how to talk and they ain't gonna try
I shouldn't bitch
I shouldn't cry
I'd start a revolution but I don't have time

I don't know why I'm still a nice guy
But I'm getting close to the borderline
Close to the borderline

I thought I'd sacrifice so many things
I thought I'd throw them all away
I didn't think I needed anything
But you can't afford to squander what you're not prepared to pay

I need a doctor for my pressure pills
I need a lawyer for my medical bills
I need a banker to finance my home
But I need security to back my loan
It isn't new what I'm going through
But everybody knows you got to break sometime

Another night I fought the good fight
But I'm getting closer to the borderline
Close to the borderline
Close to the borderline
Close to the borderline
Close to the borderline
Close to the borderline
To the borderline
To the borderline



Well I woke up in mid-afternoon
'Cause that's when it all hurts the most
I dream I never know anyone at the party
And I'm always the host
If dreams are like movies
Then memories are films about ghosts
You can never escape
You can only move south down the coast

Well I am an idiot
Walking a tightrope of fortune and fame
I am an acrobat
Swinging trapezes through circles of flame
If you've never stared off in the distance
Then your life is a shame
And though I'll never forget your face
Sometimes I can't remember my name

Hey Mrs. Potter don't cry
Hey Mrs. Potter I know why but
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me?

Well there's a piece of Maria
In every song that I sing
And the price of a memory
Is the memory of the sorrow it brings
And there is always one last light to turn out
And one last bell to ring
And the last one out of the circus
Has to lock up everything

Or the elephants will get out
And forget to remember what you said
And the ghosts of the tilt-a-whirl
Will linger inside your head
And the ferris wheel junkies
Will spin there forever instead
When I see you
A blanket of stars covers me in my bed

Hey Mrs. Potter don't go
I said hey Mrs. Potter I don't know but
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me?

All the blue light reflections
That color my mind when I sleep
And the lovesick rejections
That accompany the company I keep
All the razor perceptions
That cut just a little too deep
Hey I can bleed as well as anyone
But I need someone to help me sleep

So I throw my hand into the air
And it swims in the beams
It's just a brief interruption
Of the swirling dust sparkle jet stream
Well I know I don't know you
And you're probably not what you seem
But I'd sure like to find out
So why don't you climb down off that movie screen?

Hey Mrs. Potter don't turn
Hey Mrs. Potter I burn for you
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me?

When the last king of Hollywood
Shatters his glass on the floor
And orders another
Well I wonder what he did that for
That's when I know that I have to get out
'Cause I have been there before
So I gave up my seat at the bar
And I head for the door

We drove out to the desert
Just to lie down beneath this bowl of stars
We stand up in the palace
Like it's the last of the great pioneer town bars
We shout out these songs
Against the clang of electric guitars
You can see a million miles tonight
But you can't get very far
Oh you can see a million miles tonight
But you can't get very far

Hey Mrs. Potter I won't touch
And hey Mrs. Potter it's not much but
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me?
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me?
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me?

Love that Airplanes song... Haylee Williams ftw biggrin.gif anyone who knows me knows I'm a huge paramore fan so its only fitting I use them here.

The Chorus to Playing god.

You don't have to believe me
But the way I way I see it.
Next time you point a finger I might have to bend it back
Or BREAK IT BREAK IT off.
next time you point a finger
I'll point you to the mirror

What I love about this is when she emphasises BREAK like she's pissed.

Or in the first verse.

Maybe you should tie me up
So I don't go where you don't want me

I love this song because its a big f*ck you to the self righteous who judge people.

Faith No More - King For A Day.
It is not a good day, if you are not looking good
This is the best party that I've ever been to
Today I asked for a god to pour some wine in my eyes
Today I asked for someone to shake some salt on my life
Look !
Everything's spinning
(We're on the ground)
Never cheer before you know who's winning
(Don't make a sound)

Sniff the glass and let it roll around on you tongue
Let me introduce you to someone before the party is done
Someone to look to in need or in want or in war
If you give him everything, he may give you even more

This is the best party I've ever been to

Don't let me die with that silly look in my eyes

I actually think B.O.B. Ruins the song. ( don't even know this guy but he doesn't sound memorable.) But when Eminem starts singing i'm pumped Eminem has a way of making you listen when he sings. Meanwhile I can't for the life of me remember a word of B.O.B.s part. Ironic considering its his song lol.

Nutshell By Alice in Chains


We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home

Oooh... Oooh...
Oooh... Oooh...

My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead

Oooh... Oooh...
Oooh... Oooh...




Minus the oooh's of course, but deff some in depth lyrics. Love this song!

A bit of a long one, but it's a really cool story in my opinion:

Sonata Arctica - White Pearl, Black Oceans

I was born and raised by the sea; shy yet proud,
learned to stay away from the crowd,
in my home, my lighthouse.
101 steps, round and down,
New Years Eve, one night on the town
can change one life into eternity.

All I could see - her eyes.
We got caught in the moment all of the night.
Taken beyond all lines,
in silence, leaving them all behind.

She had found the sails for the following night.
The town, for her, was getting way too small.
She promised to be mine forever, for that one night ...

Moments, passion, small defeats.
Concealed emotions found in me.
"You gave life to a brand new me ..."

Crossing the wintry fields the first hour of morning light.
Warmed by the flame inside -
the lasting memory of the ending night.

I never had a chance to stop what hit me,
what broke my bones and mauled me.
After hours of deep unwilling sleep in a cold shelter,
fell back in the dark, and the hours of the day passed ...

A nightmare awakes me, blinking light,
there's no guide - blind ships in the night!
Oh, blood red moon, eat away the night ...

Darkness covers my lonely soul,
no one to feed the dying light ...

Good morn', oh dreadful day.
I prayed the moon had lit the sea instead of me, for the sails of night.

"Please tell me everything is alright ..."
My voice in the room broke the silence,
everybody killed me with their eyes ...
what I was to hear made the people cry -
impossible for me to keep the tears inside.

"All on the board the White Pearl have died!
Coastal reef has tolled their lives,
and you are the light of the night!"

One thing I remember, before I fell on the ground,
although I never saw the face,
a name was inked in his arm ...

Love can be like poetry of demons, or maybe God loves complex irony?
The family name stated I had seen before ...
written on her front door!

"Silence in the courthouse!"
A presence in the room we both could feel -
the father of her unborn child and me.

All on the board the White Pearl have died,
coastal reef has tolled their lives,
while I was the guide light!
Back in my tower, run, run, run - light is out.
I hope to see black oceans beneath rise and swallow me!

One step will take me back inside, another sees my end.
No one can love a man who guarded the light one fateful night ...
Flaming eyes I must confront before I am stated free.

Defining innocence is hell after all that has passed.
Building new walls inside my eternal night.
Although they took my heart and dried me up,
sometimes I still bleed ...

Show me the way ...
The light will show me a way on the grisly reefs,
too many dead ends I see.
No soul can save me -
the respect I lost, the measure of a man.

10,000 steps down, round and round,
one night on the town and I'm hell bound.
Black oceans beneath, come and swallow me!
All on board the White Pearl have died,
coastal reef come claim my life!
Black oceans beneath, come and swallow me!

My little tower, seal my fate,
help me pay back - end their hate.
Black oceans beneath, come and swallow me!
One direction; down, down, down ...
pitch black night for my old town,
black oceans beneath shall now swallow me.

was it something I said
or done
that made him pack his bags up
and run
could it be another
he's go-ot...


I love it!






I totally love the chorus of this one, it became kinda a anthem for me, because of all this overprotective parents issue

You wired me awake
And hit me with a hand of broken nails
You tied my lead and pulled my chain
To watch my blood begin to boil
But I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run
Too cold to start a fire
I'm burning diesel burning dinosaur bones
I'll take the river down to still water
And ride a pack of dogs
I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run
Hits like a Phillips head
Into my brain
It's gonna be too dark
To sleep again
Cutting my teeth on bars
And rusty chains, I'm gonna break my
Rusty cage and run
When the forest burns
Along the road
Like God's eyes
In my headlights
When the dogs are looking
For their bones
And it's raining icepicks
On your steel shore
I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

As devils search for the secrets to immortality
I alter my physical chemistry
Walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I exist even when no things are left
Vibrations transcend space and time
Pure at heart because I deal with the mind
That's why I compose these verses
Audible worlds my thoughts are now universes
Written on these pages is the ageless
wisdom of the sages, ignorance is contagious
So I hope you keep your focus
There's no hocus-pocus, in the end, it's just us
Devil got brother killin brother, it's insane
Goin out like Abel and Cain
Wisen up and use your brain
There'll be no limit, to the things that you can gain
In positivity, balance it with negativity
Until then, ain't the devil happy

I hate when the devil's happy, so I wear my hair hair nappy
Knotty, won't go out like John Gotti
He came from the caves to destroy everybody
And we like fools destroy our own bodies
Too many niggaz chillin, bad boys boom boom
This leaves no room for the flowers to bloom
Seeds blow in the wind, another drug killing
What, are we accomplishing? Nothing
What's, the matter?
Why everytime I look around another brain gets splattered?
Some pockets get fatter but it don't matter
The devil's the only one who really gets fatter
Lead ruptures flesh, spleens are shattered
Dreams are shattered, another Queen without a King
What will out children become without proper guidance?
Probably nothing, so ain't the devil happy

Niggaz are in a state of nothingness
Hopelessness, lifelessness
If you're in range I hope you hear this
And try to change this, cause it's disatrous
Who gets the most loot, who gets bust?
Dollar bill y'all, is the god we trust
THe days blow by like dust
Even Men of Steel rust
We're out here acting ridiculous
When, only we can save us
Mentally enslave us, for little or nothing kill our neighbors
Animalistic, caniballistic, behavior
Look to the sky for your savior
He won't save ya, he didn't save your forefathers
Why bother, brothers? You must discover
The power of self, know thyself, or find thyself
Hating thyself, killing thyself
While he collects the wealth that you sit back and murder for
Ain't the devil happy


If there's still someone left to claim hip-hop's all about money, cars & bitches, please go and kill yourself.

Well in my life there've been times that I stood and lost
But in my life I have learned to be free
I tell you the law that I lay down will be down
That I 'm above love, light, right and whatever may be

icon14.gif I f*cking love Billy Joel.


Well we all have a face
That we hide away forever
And we take them out
And how ourselves
When everyone has gone
Some are satin
Some are steel
Some are silk
And some are leather
They're the faces of a stranger
But we love to try them on

Well we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger?
Did you ever let your lover
See the stranger in yourself?

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south
Every now and then
You've done it
Why can't someone else?
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

Once I used to believe
I was such a great romancer
Then I came home to a woman
That I could not recognize
When I pressed her for a reason
She refused to even answer
It was then I felt the stranger
Kick me right between the eyes

Well we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger?
Did you ever let your lover
See the stranger in yourself?

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south
Every now and then
You've done it
Why can't someone else?
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

You may never understand
How the stranger is inspired
But he isn't always evil
And he is not always wrong
Though you drown in good intentions
You will never quench the fire
You'll give in to your desire
When the stranger comes along

I like the airplanes song it's really good colgate.gif

Haylee William's and DMX FTW.


[Hayley Williams - Chorus]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now, wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now, Wish right now

[B.o.B - Verse 1]
Yeah
I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
'Cause after all the partyin'
The smashin' and crashin'
And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time when you fade to the blackness
And when you're starin' at that phone in yo' lap
And hopin', but them people never call you back
But that's just how the story unfolds
You get another hand
Soon after you fold
And when your plans unravel in the sand
What would you wish for if you had one chance?
So airplanes airplanes
Sorry I'm late
I'm on my way
So don't close that gate
If I don't make that
Then I switch my flight
And I'll be right back at it
By the end of the night

[Hayley Williams - Chorus]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now, wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now, wish right now

[B.o.B - Verse 2]
Yeah
Yeah
Somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job
Before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah back when I was tryin' to get a tip at Subway
And back when I was rappin' for the hell of it
But now days we rappin' to stay relevant
I'm guessin' that if we can make some wishes out of airplanes
Then maybe oh maybe I'll go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when ain't nobody listened to my mix tapes
And back before I tried to cover up my slate
But this is for Decatur
What's up Bobby Ray?
So can I get a wish to end the politics
And get back to the music that started this sh*t
So here I stand
And then again I say
I'm hopin' we can make some wishes outta airplanes

[Hayley Williams - Chorus]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now, wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now, wish right now


Eminem - Not Afraid

I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road

(Intro)

Yeah, It's been a ride...
I guess I had to go to that place to get to this one
Now some of you might still be in that place
If you're trying to get out, just follow me
I'll get you there

(Verse 1)

You can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay 'em
But you won't take this thing out these words before I say 'em
Cause ain't no way I'm let you stop me from causing mayhem
When I say 'em or do something I do it, I don't give a damn
What you think, I'm doing this for me, so f*ck the world
Feed it beans, it's gassed up, if a thing's stopping me
I'mma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly
And all those who look down on me I'm tearing down your balcony
No if ands or buts don't try to ask him why or how can he
From Infinite down to the last Relapse album he's still sh*t'n
Whether he's on salary, paid hourly
Until he bows out or he sh*t's his bowels out of him
Whichever comes first, for better or worse
He's married to the game, like a f*ck you for christmas
His gift is a curse, forget the earth he's got the urge
To pull his dick from the dirt and f*ck the universe

(Hook)

I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road

(Verse 2)
Ok quit playin' with the scissors and sh*t, and cut the crap
I shouldn't have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it's a rap
You said you was king, you lied through your teeth
For that f*ck your feelings, instead of getting crowned you're getting capped
And to the fans, I'll never let you down again, I'm back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let's be honest, that last Relapse CD was "ehhhh"
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Eminem Not Afraid lyrics found on http://www.directlyr...aid-lyrics.html
Relax, I ain't going back to that now
All I'm tryna say is get back, click-clack BLAOW
Cause I ain't playin' around
There's a game called circle and I don't know how
I'm way too up to back down
But I think I'm still tryna figure this crap out
Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn't
This f*cking black cloud still follow's me around
But it's time to exercise these demons
These motherf*ckers are doing jumping jacks now!

(Hook)

I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road

(Bridge)

And I just can't keep living this way
So starting today, I'm breaking out of this cage
I'm standing up, Imma face my demons
I'm manning up, Imma hold my ground
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now

(Verse 3)

It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
Admittedly I probably did it subliminally for you
So I could come back a brand new me, you helped see me through
And don't even realise what you did, believe me you
I been through the ringer, but they can do little to the middle finger
I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of
My world, haters can make like bees with no stingers, and drop dead
No more beef flingers, no more drama from now on, I promise
To focus soley on handling my responsibility's as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof like my daughters and raise it
You couldn't lift a single shingle on it
Cause the way I feel, I'm strong enough to go to the club
Or the corner pub and lift the whole liquor counter up
Cause I'm raising the bar, I shoot for the moon
But I'm too busy gazing at stars, I feel amazing and

(Hook)

I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road[i]

And my all time favorite, Lose Yourself, by Eminem.

[i]Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment
Would you capture it? Or just let it slip?

(Verse 1)
Yeah,
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's choking how, everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah!
Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that
Easy, no
He won't have it, he knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that, but he's broke
He's so stagnant that he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again yo
This whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him

(Chorus)
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

(Verse 2)
This soul's escaping, through this hole that is gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
A normal life is boring, but superstardom's close to post mortem
It only grows harder, homey grows hotter
He blows it's all over, these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he's know as the Globetrotter
Lonely roads, God only knows
He's grown farther from home, he's no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose 'cause here goes the cold water
These hoes don't want him no mo', he's cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose dove and sold nada
So the soap opera is told and unfolds
I suppose it's old partner, but the beat goes on
Da da dum da dum da da

(Chorus)
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

(Verse 3)
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
Tear this motherf*cking roof off like two dogs caged
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed
I been chewed up, and spit out, and booed off stage
But I kept rhyming and stepwritin' the next cypher
Best believe somebody's paying the pied piper
All the pain inside amplified by the
Fact that I can't get by with my nine to five
And I can't provide the right type of life for my family
'Cause man, these Goddamn food stamps don't buy diapers
And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder
Trying to feed and water my seed, plus
Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna
Baby mama drama's screaming on and
Too much for me to wanna
Stay in one spot, another day of monotony
Has gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail
I've got to formulate a plot or end up in jail or shot
Success is my only motherf*cking option, failure's not
Mom, I love you, but this trailer's got to go
I cannot grow old in Salem's Lot
So here I go is my shot.
Feet fail me not 'cause maybe the only opportunity that I got

(Chorus)
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

(Outro)
You can do anything you set your mind to, man

Immortal technique's Dance with the devil: crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared
but only the devil responded, cause god wasn't there
and right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold
and so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul

And Bruce Springsteen's The river:
for my nineteen birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse and the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
No flowers no wedding dress

I like the lyrics to this song because it makes me think

The Bravery - Above And Below

Sometimes I feel
Like I wanna leave this place for good
Under the ground
I'll live down there without a sound
And never hear
These hissing voices all the same
I'll disappear
Cause living makes me feel ashamed

I must believe
There's more above us and below
I must believe
Stranded with this bitch called hope
It keeps me here
When all I wanna do is go
It keeps me here
When all I wanna do is disappear

If this is it
When all we have and ever will
If this is it
Time is running out and standing still
I'll leave today
Cause there's nothing left to keep me here
I'll fade away
I'll turn my back and disappear

The city moves
Lunges up right from the ground
The seething Earth
It opens up and spits us out
This vicious child
Nature never wanted us
This vicious child
A cancer burning black into it's heart

If this is it
When all we have and ever will
If this is it
Time is running out and standing still
I'll leave today
Cause there's nothing left to keep me here
I'll fade away
I'll turn my back and disappear

Sometimes I feel
Like I wanna leave this place for good
Under the ground
I'll live down there without a sound
And never hear
These hissing voices all the same
I'll disappear
Cause living makes me feel ashamed

If this is it
When all we have and ever will
If this is it
Time is running out and standing still
I'll leave today
Cause there's nothing left to keep me here
I'll fade away
I'll turn my back and disappear
I'll turn my back and disappear

Definitely Fort Minor - Right Now. Some people may think these lyrics are "too emo" for a rap song but that's bullsh*t. In general all lyrics on Fort Minor's album The Rising Tied are just so awesome.



Someone right now is leaving their apartment
Looking down at the street and wondering where their car went
Someone in the car sitting at a signal
In front of a restaraunt, staring through the window
at someone right now with their finger in their teeth
who could use a little floss, right across the street
there's somebody on the curb who really needs a jacket
spent half the rent at a bar getting plastered
Now he gotta walk 14 blocks just to
work at a shop where he's about to get fired
Someone right now is looking pretty tired
Staring at a laptop trying to get inspired as
Somebody living right across the street
Just wrote the best thing she's written all week
but her best friend is coughing up blood in the sink
He can't even think what happened, feeling so confused
And he knows it looks bad but there's nothing he can do
I wonder what it's like to be right there in his shoes

But yo I'm just taking it in
Out the window of a hotel bedroom again
Tomorrow I'll be gone I don't know when I'll be back
But in this world everything can change just like that
Like that

Somebody right now is dropping his vote inside a box
And trying not to get shot in his throat
For the act of freedom right now somebody is stuck in Iraq
Hoping that he gets shipped back breathing
in a war that he's not really sure of the reasons
So we show our support when the press mislead him
Though we mourn remain proud and salute the troops
get some I know you boys got some work to do

Meanwhile right now someone's 25-to-life-ing
Standing on the corner with their thumb up hitchhiking
Scratching off a lotto ticket hoping for a real winner
Sneaking through the border just to work and to eat a real dinner
Right now someone wishes they were you and I
instead of second-guessing fatal thoughts of quiet suicide
But right now I'm staring at the window at a fiend
with holes in his arm and holes in his jeans
he pulled out a cigarette and sparked the light
And walked right around the corner just outta my sight

But yo I'm just taking it in
From the second story hotel window again
The TV's on and my bags are packed
But in this world everything can change just like that
Like that

Yeah, right now somebody's sittin' in the darkness
Tryin' to figure out how to put some heat in they apartment
But they got a little mattress and a little carpet
And they appreciate it 'cause some people on a park bench
You see 'em when you rushing to get to the office
wife ride by 'em when she comin' from the market
Right now somebody comin' out from the pocket
Tryin' to dump that rock they run around the block with
The same time the cops is raisin' the glock with aim
To fill your legs and your back with some hot sh*t
Right now somebody's struggling to stop this man
That's kicking and punching and cussing at the doctors
Down the hall the child is takin' its first breath
The doctors ain't even passed him to the nurse yet yo
I wonder if he understands what it's worth yet
Life the time spent while we here on the earth yet
The answer to the questions that we all seek
can be found it depend on how free y'all think
Right now it's somebody who ain't eat all week
That would kill for the sh*t that you throw away in the street
I guess one man's trash is the next man's treasure
One man's pain is the next man's pleasure
one say infinity the next say forever
right now everybody got to get it together man

I'm just taking it in another strange hotel lobby again
With my luggage on my back I don't know where I'm at
I'm in world where we all change just like that,
Like that, like that, just like that, like that, just like that

Why are people putting videos up anyway? It says lyrics, not the complete song.

Anyway, here are some rap lyrics I've been laughing at lately, so;

Eazy-E: Muthaf*ckin' Real G's
You're like a little kid,
you found a pup and now you're dapper,
but tell me where the f*ck,
you found the anorexic rapper?


Tupac: Hit 'em Up
First off,
f*ck your wife,
and the click you claim


Ohhhh, but enough of the laughs here are some more serious lyrics that really amazed me.

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Snow (Hey Oh)
Come to decide,
that the things that I tried,
were in my life,
just to get high on,
when I sit alone,
come get a little known,
but I need more then myself this time

That song is about Anthony Keidis' Heroin addiction that led the band to hiatus.

Well, mainly cuz it's much easier to find the beauty by listening to the song and not just read the lyrics. And you can find some new cool songs this way.

The lyrics to:

Chester P - The Wiccaman Theory
and Jehst's verse on The Cosmic Gypsies song.

here some random bits from

Wiccaman:

...I find all my comforts in deep insecurities.
I spoilt what痴 beautiful, while looking for impurities.
I知 buried in the lie, trying to live my life truthfully.
I sail my ship alone and I知 still having mutinies.
I知 wearing a disguise, hiding from the phonies.
I知 hiding from myself, but I知 scared of being lonely.
The world痴 like a cell God created just to hold me.
My life痴 like a game where my death is the trophy...

& Cosmic Gypsy:

...I surf the network, and my skin turns silver
Metallic anatomy, the space probe builder
Rainbow conceiver, I'm bleeding mercury
Caught in a time warp, and all I see is burgundy
My fingertips glisten, gripping crystallised flowers
Red and green sparkle, marvel at the powers
Asteroid showers, inter-planetary rainfall
Brainstorm colourcharts, the cosmic paintball
The mega-blast, travel on the Battle Star Galactica
Jehst! The invalid who infiltrated Gattica...
