heres one i just wrote




in the river of time
the leaves are all turning brown
and i feel so high
then soon i come crashing down
reality blinds
like sun in your eyes
and clarity seems
to sharp, i perfer dreams
and thier soft focus cloud
that never comes down
down


where have you been my friend
while we struggled and fought
dont you know in the end
you either die or get caught
but floating along
just singing my song
ill stay above it all
till i eventually fall
fall
down
down


and im down for the cause
as long as my eyes stay closed
take a moment and pause
and the cause seems superimposed
if realitys real
then reel me in
i know how i feel
as thin as my skin
and i
im
falling down

Toss in some Avalon/LotR references, and maybe a sick guitar solo, and you're set.

And no, I'm not just being a dick. I love shit like Wishbone Ash.

That's what I said
The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
Or so I have read
...[quote]

One night me and the crew hit the road on a mission
To slurp free brew and go fuzzy flounder fishin'
Kayjees on the hi-fi and the keg was bottomless
Until we brought skip o' pot2mus
And daddy's gonna get some probably underage and dumb
And everybody knows that the daddy eats his young
Lupus in the lavatory making a big stink
Macing up the toilet seat and pooping in the sink
M.s.g.'s tanked up and wizzin' in a cup
Waiting for a sprinkle genie to come and drink it up
Cause I'm the one bottle willy with the 12 horse ale
After that I get silly like soupy sales
Now it's midnight and I'm completely boofy blitzed
A six of shlitz and the jew brew manischewitz
With my beer-tinted glasses I'm ready to bitty battle
I'm hungry like the wolf but I'll end up tending cattle

Cause you're pretty when I'm drunk


Here she comes, a funky fried cutie
Mr. jimmy pop ali is gonna get some booty
Cause I'm mr. mcfeelie with a speedy delivery
You'd think I was a ditch the way this chick was diggin' me
But maybe I should check and see if this is where I wanna be
Hey lupus is she cute? yea for a pygmie
Aw! what do you know? you're probably going home alone
And it wouldn't be the first time that I gave a dog a bone
Plus beauty, it's only skin deep
It's in the eye of the beholder and my beholder's about to tweak
I could tap that barrel, in fact I know I can
It's a msnags a trois you and me and heineken

Cause you're pretty when I'm drunk


Regrets I've had a few
First and foremost I'd like to mention you
For the sake of conversation we'll call you the brand new heavy
Your a mix between an ugnaut and eugene levy
You can call it big-boned, I prefer to call it gut
You're buddha you're shamu you're jabba the fuckin' hutt
You had harpoon scars and your boobies were hairy
I smelt tuna melt but I wasn't gonna worry
It was 3 a.m. and I wasn't gettin' squat
So I rolled you up in flour and aimed it for the wet spot
I was buttering rolls like a soup kitchen christian
Then it hit me something bit me while my little rod was fishin'
I was deep sea fishing I took a fat chance
But how was I supposed to know that jabberjaws lived in your pants
At that junction I came to realize
That only frank purdue likes thighs that size
Fatty fatty boom ba latty I gotta lament
That you were not a girl you were an experiment

Cause you're pretty when I'm drunk

Joey pulled himself to his knees,
Pulled his body back up the bank
and looked back down there.

Said the water was not that deep,
But I almost drowned there
You can drown in a bathtub
So they... say.

Someone in class called me a loser
So I decided to skip the day
(hey hey) skip the day.

Tried to look casual sneakin round the back
As I shotput across the track
Into the gate beside the portables

But a red tie and school gray slacks
Doesn't blend in with the grass
As the teacher was changing class
_______

He chased me half way through the park
Till I ran into the woods
Then I'm (very good) in THE WOODS!

So I was an Indian
The player by the creek
And dried my eyes there.

There's a record body count this year
There's a record body count THIS YEAR!
_______

Joey stepped up on a block of ice,
Put a rope around his neck.
Fell asleep before he died

Who could forget this one:

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy spent.

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.

Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colors from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white,
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?

~The Moody Blues

You take the good, you take the bad,
you take them both and there you have
The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life.

There's a time you got to go and show
You're growin' now you know about
The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life.

When the world never seems
to be livin up to your dreams
And suddenly you're finding out
the Facts of Life are all about you, you.

It takes a lot to get 'em right
When you're learning the Facts of Life. (learning the Facts of Life)
Learning the Facts of Life (learning the Facts of Life)
Learning the Facts of Life.

Threads like these should not die, lyrics are powerful ways to get messages across. So old but the message is more meaningful than ever- NOFX - The Decline Where are all the stupid people from? And how'd they get to be so dumb?

Heart-shaped chews and traps
Treasure hiding
Scared of temptress skill
Love I'd sold, I was trying
Deep without us
Down down and further- tears
Collective in try and stop
Fire is out
Not ready focus
Life places scars
Purify them
Constancy
Purifies new skins
In excelcius
Glee she'll use as fire
Lips spread the fire
Your heart
And you are ready

I'll play. Picked the 'new & improved' Pogues R,S & L yesterday and gave it a spin last night. One of the great anti-war songs:

When I was a young man I carried my pack
And I lived the free life of a rover
From the Murrays green basin to the dusty outback
I waltzed my Matilda all over
Then in nineteen fifteen my country said Son
It's time to stop rambling 'cause there's work to be
done
So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
And they sent me away to the war
And the band played Waltzing Matilda
As we sailed away from the quay
And amidst all the tears and the shouts and the
cheers
We sailed off to Gallipoli

How well I remember that terrible day
<When> the blood stained the sand and the water
And how in that hell that they called Suvla Bay
We were butchered like lambs at the slaughter
Johnny Turk he was ready, he primed himself well
He <showered> us with bullets, he rained us with
shells
And in five minutes flat he'd blown us all to hell
Nearly blew us right back to Australia
But the band played Waltzing Matilda
As we stopped to bury our slain
And we buried ours and the Turks buried theirs
Then <it> started all over again

Now those <who were living did their best to survive>
In <that> mad world of blood, death and fire
And for <seven long> weeks I kept myself alive
<While the corpses around me piled higher>
Then a big Turkish shell knocked me arse over tit
And when I woke up in my hospital bed
And saw what it had done, <Christ> I wished I was
dead
Never knew there were worse things than dying
<And> no more I'll go waltzing Matilda
<To> the green <bushes so> far and near
For to hump tent and pegs, a man needs two legs
No more waltzing Matilda for me

So they collected the cripples, the wounded <and>
maimed
And they shipped us back home to Australia
<The legless, the armless>, the blind <and> insane
Those proud wounded heroes of Suvla
And as our ship pulled into Circular Quay
I looked at the place where <me> legs used to be
And thank Christ there was nobody waiting for me
To grieve and to mourn and to pity
And the band played Waltzing Matilda
As they carried us down the gangway
But nobody cheered, they just stood and stared
<And they> turned all their faces away

And now every April I sit on my porch
And I watch the parade pass before me
<I see> my old comrades, how proudly they march
Reliving <the or their> dreams of past glory
<I see the old men, all twisted and torn>
The forgotten heroes <of> a forgotten war
And the young people ask <me>, "What are they
marching for?"
And I ask myself the same question
And the band plays Waltzing Matilda
And the old men <still> answer to the call
But year after year their numbers get fewer
Some day no one will march there at all

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who'll <go> a-waltzing Matilda with me?

Poor Places by Wilco

It's my father's voice trailing off
Sailors sailing off in the morning
For the air-conditioned rooms
At the top of the stairs

His jaw's been broken
His bandage is wrapped too tight
His fangs have been pulled
And I really want to see you tonight

There's bourbon on the breath
Of the singer you love so much
He takes all his words from the books
That you don't read anyway

His jaw's been broken
His bandage is wrapped too tight
His fangs have been pulled
And I really want to see you tonight

Someone ties a bow
In my backyard to show me love
My voice is climbing walls
Smoking and I want love

My jaw's been broken
My heart is wrapped in ice
My fangs have been pulled
And I really want to see you tonight

And it makes no difference to me
How they cried all over overseas
When it's hot in the poor places tonight
I'm not going outside

They cried all over overseas
It makes no difference to me
When it's hot in the poor places tonight
I'm not going outside

It's hot in the poor places tonight
I'm not going outside
I'm not going outside
I'm not going outside

Hurt

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

you could have it all
my empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear my crown of shit
on my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
beneath the stain of time
the feeling disappears
you are someone else
I am still right here

what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end

think back to the days when you were young
and the world was looking in
do you recall pre-school turned out
to be pre-anything

and you learn to hide
the things you feel
with all those other imbeciles

and it seems so many years ago
i have to say the time went by so fast
the good times are here at last (x3)
yes the good times are here

and in your head you long to grow
you clamber to be older so
it's fist to fist and back to back (?)
and the future's bright and the past is black

and you watched yourself
and you watched your friends
as they grew to women and they grew to men

and it seems so many years ago
i have to say the time went by so fast
the good times are here at last (x3)
don't you know the good times are here

think back to the days when you were young
and the world was looking in
how things have changed now you look out
and watch new lives begin

and you've learned to hide
the things you are
and you talk about your job and your house and your car

and it seems so many years ago
i have to say the time went by so fast
the good times are here at last (x3)
yes the good times are here

I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes
When you put me on the Wolverine
Up to Annandale
It was still September
When your daddy was quite surprised
To find you with the working girls
In the county jail
I was smoking with the boys upstairs
When I heard about the whole affair
I said oh no
William and Mary won't do
CHORUS:
Well I did not think the girl
Could be so cruel
And I'm never going back
To my old school

Oleanders growing outside her door
Soon they're gonna be in bloom
Up in Annandale
I can't stand her
Doing what she did before
Living like a gypsy queen
In a fairy tale
Well I hear the whistle but I can't go
I'm gonna take her down to Mexico
She said oh no
Guadalajara won't do

CHORUS

California tumbles into the sea
That'll be the day I go
Back to Annandale
Tried to warn you
About Chino and Daddy Gee
But I can't seem to get to you
Through the U.S. Mail
Well I hear the whistle but I can't go
I'm gonna take her down to Mexico
She said oh no
Guadalajara won't do

CHORUS

I close my eyes
And imagine you're here
Did it all seem so hopeless
Given the chance
I would ask
Forgive me
I didn't do a thing to make you stay
I didn't say a word to make you stay
If I would have known
Could I have tried to make it easier
But I didn't do a thing
Or say a word
One word

And I don't know why you're gone, now you're gone
No beautiful goodbye
You will never leave my mind
And it turns out to be so much different than our dreams
Now you're, you're a star in heaven

My thoughts unsaid
Stuck in my head
And it all feels so useless
Never forget to give all I have
Forgive me
I couldn't do a thing to make you stay
And I couldn't say a word to make you stay
If I could have known
Could I have tried to make it easier
But I couldn't do a thing
Or say a word
One word

And I don't know why you're gone, now you're gone
No beautiful goodbye
You will never leave my mind
And it turns out to be so much different than our dreams
Now you're, yeah, you're a star in heaven

Still I don't know why you're gone, now you're gone
No beautiful goodbye
You will never leave my mind
And it turns out to be so much different than our dreams
Now you're, you're a star in heaven
You're a star in heaven now
You're a star in heaven
Yeah, you're my star

Steven Earles "A Bible And A Gun"


There's a full moon out tonight
And it's shining down on me
And in that purest light
The slaves are still not free

So Missouri's bound in sorrow
And her woods are draped with pain
And when the sun comes up tomorrow
I'll be on the move again

Now i hear a whisper soft and low
Through every mile i run
As i travel through this world of woe
With a bible and a gun

If a man was made to suffer
I'm a mighty man i know
And I cannot shake the anger
That keeps me on this road

And they came with bugles soundin'
And righteousness decreed
And they left me with this vengeance
To forever feel

To turn the other cheek
It's the braver thing to do
I wish I had it in me
They wish they had it too

For tomorrow when we meet
This story will end
And an ancient, hollow grief
Will be our only friend
