    ok... this should be interesting. post favorite lyrics. worked at the other sf, and im guess ing will work better here since i think there is a much wider musical taste here.

    ill start
    ballad of grimaldi: pete doherty

    while theres still a fighting chance
    why cant you just get up and go
    and get away from this hollow romance
    thats slowly binding us both

    because, youll tell me what you want and ill avoid it
    tell it to the sick and to the damned
    show me what you love, watch me destroy it
    for your love just crumbles in my hands

    but if you stay for a while
    try to think of something kind to say
    and maybe if we pray for a while
    st jude will hear my pleas and see me on my knees

    because she knows
    i adore you
    we wont be fighting tonight
    because she knows
    i adore you.
    we wont be fighting in the street

    i laugh and fall just like grimaldi
    you wear your make-up like baby jane
    all those promising lies that you told me
    come on and tell me them again

    i walk the streets all of my life
    with fear and hope at every turn
    she ..........
    made him a wife
    (mumblemumble) crash and burn

    because hell tell 'im what he wnat and hell aviod it
    might as well tell it to the sick and to the damned
    show what you love, watch him destroy it
    love just seems to crumble in his hands.

    I've got that line "If looks could kill they probably will" stuck in my head, repeating over and over. Just that one line. It's from GAMES WITHOUT FRONTIERS by Peter Gabriel. Someone covered it recently-------Will Oldham? I can't figure it out.

    Whoever we are

    Wherever we're from

    We shoulda noticed by now

    Our behavior is dumb

    And if our chances

    Expect to improve

    It's gonna take a lot more

    Than tryin' to remove

    The other race

    Or the other whatever

    From the face

    Of the planet altogether

    They call it THE EARTH

    Which is a dumb kinda name

    But they named it right

    'Cause we behave the same...

    We are dumb all over

    Dumb all over,

    Yes we are

    Dumb all over,

    Near'n far

    Dumb all over

    Black 'n white

    People, we is not wrapped tight

    Nurds on the left

    Nurds on the right

    Religious fanatics

    On the air every night

    Sayin' the Bible

    Tells the story

    Makes the details

    Sound real gory

    'Bout what to do

    If the geeks over there

    Don't believe in the book

    We got over here

    You can't run a race

    Without no feet

    'N pretty soon

    There won't be no street

    For dummies to jog on

    Or doggies to dog on

    Religious fanatics

    Can make it be all gone

    (I mean it won't blow up

    'N disappear

    It'll just look ugly

    For a thousand years...)

    You can't run a country

    By a book of religion

    Not by a heap

    Or a lump or a smidgeon

    Of foolish rules

    Of ancient date

    Designed to make

    You all feel great

    While you fold, spindle

    And mutilate

    Those unbelievers

    From a neighboring state

    TO ARMS! TO ARMS!

    Hooray! That's great

    Two legs ain't bad

    Unless there's a crate

    They ship the parts

    To mama in

    For souvenirs: two ears (Get down!)

    Not his, not hers (but what the hey?)

    The Good Book says:

    "It's gotta be that way!"

    But their book says:

    "REVENGE THE CRUSADES. . .

    With whips 'n chains

    'N hand grenades. . ."

    TWO ARMS? TWO ARMS?

    Have another and another

    Our Cod says:

    "There ain't no other!"

    Our Cod says

    "It's all okay!"

    Our God says "This is the way!"

    It says in the book:

    "Burn 'n destroy. ..

    'N repent, 'n redeem

    'N revenge, 'n deploy

    'N rumble thee forth

    To the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side

    'Cause they don't go for what's in the book

    'N that makes 'em BAD

    So verily we must choppeth them up

    And stompeth them down

    Or rent a nice French bomb

    To poof them out of existence

    While leaving their real estate just where we need it

    To use again

    For temples in which to praise OURGOD

    ("Cause he can really take care of business!")

    And when his humble TV servant

    With humble white hair

    And humble glasses

    And a nice brown suit

    And maybe a blonde wife who takes phone calls

    Tells us our God says

    It's okay to do this stuff

    Then we gotta do it,

    'Cause if we don't do it,

    We ain't gwine up to hebbin!

    (Depending on which book you're using at the time...

    Can't use theirs. . .it don't work . . .it's all lies...Gotta
    use mine...)

    Ain't that right?

    That's what they say

    Every night...

    Everyday. ..

    Hey, we can't really be dumb

    If we're just following

    God's Orders

    Hey, let's get serious...

    God knows what he's doin'

    He wrote this book here

    An'the book says:

    He made us all to be just like Him,"

    so...

    If we're dumb...

    Then God is dumb...

    (An' maybe even a little ugly on the side)

    I'm going away
    Where you will look for me
    Where I'm going you cannot come

    No one's ever gonna take my life from me
    I lay it down
    A ghost is born
    A ghost is born
    A ghost is born

    I'm an ocean
    I'm all emotion
    I'm a cherry ghost
    Cherry ghost

    Son look at all the people in this restaurant
    What do you think they weigh?
    And now out the window to the parking lot,
    At their SUVs taking all of the space

    They give no fuck;
    They talk as loud as they want
    They give no fuck;
    Just as long as there's enough for them.

    Gonna get on the microphone down at Wal-Mart
    Talk about some shit that's been on my mind
    Talk about the state of this great nation of ours
    People, look to you left, yeah, look to your right.

    They give no fuck;
    They buy as much as they want.
    They give no fuck;
    Just as long as there's enough for them.

    So I'm looking at the people lining up for plastic
    Wouldn't you like to see them in the National Geographic?
    Squatting bare-assed in the dirt eating rice from a bowl
    With a towel on their head and maybe a bone in their nose.

    See that asshole with the peace sign on his license plate?
    Giving me the finger and running me out of his lane?
    God made us number one cause he loves us the best.
    Well maybe he should go bless someone else for a while, give us a rest.

    (They give no)
    Yeah, and everyone can see
    (They give no)
    We've eaten all that we can eat.

    Man in Black by Johnny Cash

    Well you wonder why I always dress in black
    Why I never wear bright colors on my back
    And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone
    Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.

    I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down
    Livin' in the hopeless hungry side of town
    I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime
    But he's there because he's a victim of the times.

    I wear the black for those who've never read
    Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
    About the road to happiness through love and charity
    Why, you'd think He's talkin' straight to you and me.

    Well, we're doin' mighty fine I does suppose,
    In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
    But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
    Up front their oughtta be a man in black.

    I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
    For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
    I wear the black in mourning, for the lives that could have been,
    Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

    And I wear it for the thousands who have died,
    Believing that the Lord was on their side,
    I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
    Believing that we all were on their side.

    Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
    And things need changin' everywhere you go,
    But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
    You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

    Oh, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
    And tell the world that everything's okay,
    But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
    'Til things are brighter, I'm the Man in Black.

    My Anthem:

    "Minor Threat" by Minor Threat

    We're not the first, I hope we're not the last
    'Cause I know we're all heading for that adult crash
    The times is so little, the time belongs to us
    Why is everybody in such a fucking rush?

    Make do with what you have
    Take what you can get
    Pay no mind to us
    We're just a minor threat

    We're just a minor threat

    Early to finish, I was late to start
    I might be an adult, but I'm a minor at heart
    Go to college, be a man, what's the fucking deal?
    It's not how old I am, it's how old I feel

    Take your time
    Try not to forget
    We never will
    We're just a minor threat

    We're just a minor threat

    sizzla- what does it worth

    What does it worth, without love ?
    Put away your distrust and your grudge
    Words without work is not enough
    And everyday you make a pull, the journey get rough
    What is this world without love ?
    Put away your distrust and your grudge
    Words without work is not enough
    And everyday you make a try the journey get tough

    Verse 1:
    You remember when you trodding through the valleys of the region ?
    Jumping the follies, all the doubts and confusions
    Giving obstacles, so many trouble you buck up on
    Things a go the other way
    When a never so you set your plan
    Words of the wicked is pollution
    Caan bring no stress nor no strain inna Zion
    Emperor Selassie is the only foundation
    Only Emmanuel relieve the frustration
    You want to be free from the corruption
    Me tell you such is life from the creation
    Only Marcus Garvey show the situation
    I only chant fi repatriation

    Chorus

    Verse 2:
    From the things in life you can't walk away
    Whatsoever it brings, it will have to stay
    According to your words, a double death you pay
    Keep the smile on your face, make it an easy day
    Me know them weak, so them gone astray
    Wolf amongst the sheep, them deh deh same way
    See me and a creep fi make a better way
    One man fly the seal, a King Selassie I me sey
    Some a them a sleep, even before them pray
    Getting it right a come a lion bay
    Through un-devine only if you stay
    In a the right line, you see the right way
    Selassie will be blazing I praise him
    Remember that is blackness me still a say

    Chorus

    Verse 3:
    There is no sense in turning back
    Get right by your friend, whether you are a idiot
    This world want love to put them out pon top
    Some a them say that them have it
    But me know say them no have
    Much easier if we all could share
    No distrust nor envy must be in here
    Dirty mind people, a time fi you care
    What is not yours, me say don't interfere

    Can't stop driving
    I don't know why
    So many questions
    I need an answer
    Two years later
    You're still on my mind
    Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart
    Who holds the stars up in the sky
    Is true love once in a lifetime
    Did the captain of the Titanic cry
    Chorus:
    Someday we'll know
    If love can move a mountain
    Someday we'll know
    Why the sky is blue
    Someday we'll know
    Why I wasn't meant for you
    Does anybody know the way to Atlantis
    Or what the wind says when she cries
    I'm speeding by the place where I met you
    For the 97th time tonight
    (chorus)
    Someday we'll know
    Why Samson loved Delilah
    One day I'll go
    Dancing on the moon
    Someday you'll know
    That I was the one for you
    I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow
    I watched the stars crash in the sea
    If I could ask God just one question
    Why aren't you here with me? Tonight
    (chorus)
    Someday we'll know
    Why sampson loved Delilah
    One day I'll go
    Dancing on the moon
    Someday you'll know
    That I was the One for you
    Postscript: Seeing you in February was great
    Cliches eventually all come true
    "time heals all wounds"
    I went to get us our 9th drink
    and you ran out the door with another guy
    I woke up on the floor with my shoes on
    A smile on my face and I didn't even care

    I will be Fuhrer one day
    I will command all of you
    Your kids will meditate in school

    Zen fascists will control you
    100% natural
    You will jog for the master race
    And always wear the happy face
    Close your eyes, can't happen here

    The hippies won't come back you say
    Mellow out or you will pay

    Uber alles California
    Now it is 1984
    Knock knock at your front door
    It's the suede/denim secret police
    They have come for your uncool neice
    Come quietly to the camp
    You'd look nice as a drawstring lamp
    Don't you worry, it's only a shower
    For your clothes here's a pretty flower...

    Serpent's egg's already hatched
    You will creak, you little clown

    People hand in hand
    Have i lived to see the milk and honey land?
    Where hates a dream and love forever stands
    Or is this a vision in my mind?

    The law was never passed
    But somehow all men feel they're truly free at last.
    Have we really gone this far through space and time
    Or is this a vision in my mind?

    I'm not one who make believes
    I know that leaves are green
    They only turn to brown when autumn comes around
    I know just what i say
    Today's not yesterday
    And all things have an ending

    But what i'd like to know
    Is could a place like this exist so beautiful
    Or do we have to find our wings and fly away
    To the vision in our mind?

    I spoke to a man
    down at the tracks.
    I asked him
    how he don't go mad.
    He said, "Look here, junior, don't you be so happy.
    And for Heaven's sake, don't you be so sad."

    Despite Wilson Brother, these are still some of my favorite:

    I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
    And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
    I hear the sound of a gentle word
    On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

    --------

    I walk along the street
    I look into your eyes
    How pleasant when we meet
    I'm there when you go home
    How many times before
    Could you tell I didn't care?
    When you turned your back on me
    I knew it lead nowhere
    You believe in youth
    The history of all truth
    A heart that's left at home
    Becomes a heart of stone

    You believe in truth
    The lies we told of youth
    A cause we call our own
    Beside an empty throne
    How many times before
    Could you tell I didn't care?
    When you reached out in your sleep
    And you knew I wasn't there
    My eyes are made of stone
    Just like your sordid home
    How many times before
    Did you leave my soul alone?
