Random Lyrics Post
People keep on learnin'
Soldiers keep on warrin'
World keep on turnin'
Cause it won't be too long

Powers keep on lyin'
While your people keep on dyin'
World keep on turnin'
Cause it won't be too long

I'm so darn glad he let me try it again
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach my highest ground

Teachers keep on teachin'
Preachers keep on preachin'
World keep on turnin'
Cause it won't be too long
Oh no

Lovers keep on lovin'
Believers keep on believin'
Sleepers just stop sleepin'
Cause it won't be too long
Oh no

I'm so glad that he let me try it again
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach my highest ground...Whew!

Till I reach my highest ground
No one's gonna bring me down
Oh no
Till I reach my highest ground
Don't let nobody bring you down (they'll sho 'nuff try)
God is gonna show you higher ground
He's the only friend you have around

1. "Random Lyrics Post"
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 12:08 AM by TheWizardOfMudd
Hard to imagine
Hard to perceive
Find an expression
For what it all means

All panic and struggle
All death and decay
Its coming together
In relative ways, yeah

This electric guitar hanging to my knees
Got a couple of verses
I can barely breathe
Its all right, its okay
Its coming together in relative ways, yeah

Its okay
I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

Its okay
I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

And it started to happen
And it's started to change
Movement up on us
Hope we make it okay
Takes a life or a couple of days
Its coming together in relative ways, yeah

Our electric guitar hangs to my knees
Got a couple of verses
I can barely breathe
Its all right, its okay
Its coming together in relative ways, yeah

Its okay
I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

Its okay
I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

Its okay
I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

Its okay
I'm a saint
I forgave your mistakes

3. Marlene Dietrich's Favourite Poem
My mother loved it so she said
Sad eyed pearl and drop lips
Glancing pierce through writer man
Spoke hushed and frailing hips
Her old eyes skim in creasing lids
A tear falls as she describes
Approaching death with a yearning heart
With pride and no despise

Hot tears flow as she recounts
Her favourite worded token
Forgive me please for hurting so
Don't go away heartbroken no
Don't go away heartbroken no

Just wise owl tones no velvet lies
Crush her velvet call
Oh Marlene suffer all the fools
Who write you on the wall
And hold your tongue about your life
Or dead hands will change the plot
Will make your loving sound like snakes
Like you were never hot

Hot tears flow as she recounts
Her favourite worded token
Forgive me please for hurting so

4. Dedicated to the present occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave:
Were you born an asshole
or did you work at it your whole life?


I think it's by Jimmy Buffet.

5. I watched you slowly disappear
down into the officers' club

I would have followed you in the door
but I didn't have a ticket stub

Now I waited all night for the break of day
hoping one of us could get free

And when the dawn came over the river bridge
I knew it was up to me

6. End the war
People movin' out. People movin' in. Why, because of the color of their skin. Run Run Run, but you sho' can't hide. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Vote for me and I'll set you free. Rap on brother, rap on. Well, the only person talkin 'bout love thy brother is the preacher. And it seems, nobody is interested in learnin but the teacher. Segregation,determination,demonstration,integration,aggravation,humiliation,obligation to our nation

Ball of Confusion. That's what the world is today.

The sale of pills are at an all time high. young folks walk around with their heads in the sky. Cities aflame in the summer time and, the beat goes on...

Air pollution,revolution,guncontrol,soundofsoul, Shootinrockettothemoon, Kids growin up too soon. Politicians say more taxes will solve everything. And the band played on.
So round and round n round we go Where the world's headed, nobody knows. Jus a ball of confusion. Oh yeah that's what the world is today.
Fear in the air, tension everywhere, unemployment rising fast, the Beatles' new record's a gas. And the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation. And the band played on...
Eve of destruction tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide too many bills, hippies movin to the hills. People all over the world are shoutin, END THE WAR

and the band played on...

7. Hey!
We livin' in a mean time and an aggressive time
a painful time, a time where cynicism rots to the vine
in a time where violence blocks the summer shine
lifetimes, go by in a flash
in search for love, in search for cash
everybody wanna be some fat tycoon
everybode wanna be on a tropic honeymoon
nobody wanna sing a little bit out of tune
or be the backbone of a rebel platoon
it's too soon to step out of line
you might get laughed at you might get fined
but do you feel me when I say I feel pain everyday
when I see the way my friends gotta slave
and never get ahead of bills they gotta pay
no way no way!
some make a living doing killilng Colombian penicillin
some are willing to play the villain they just chillin'
to pass the time, pass the information
or pass the wine
pass the buck or pass the baton
but you can't pass the police or the pentagon
the I.R.S. or the upper echelon
I think it's time to make a move on the contradiction

(chorus)
Bom-Bom, rock the nation
take over television and radio station


Bom-Bom the truth shall come
give the corporation some complication!

This is the dawning of our time I say it one more time
to emphasize the meaning of my rhyme
to rise above all the dirt and grime
add the right spice at the right time
fuck the constitution
are we part of the solution or are we part of the pollution
sittin' by and wonderin' why,
things ain't the way we like to find them to be, to be
for you and for me the people over there and the ones in between
check our habitation are we a peace lovin' nation
peace lovin' nation
I have a reasonable doubt I think I'll just spell it out
there's no need to scream or to shout
the N.R.A. just bought a man's soul
then he jumps up and shouts gun control
the government says that killin's a sin
unless you kill a murderer with a lethal syringe
so I ask again "are we peace lover's then"
some of them slang guns when they six years old
some of them end up in some six foot hole
this whole damn place seems to, lost control
so I raise my voice before I lose my soul
(chorus)

This is the way I'll express my feelings
vibe revealed and revolved spinnin on a record y'all
try to confiscate take what I communicate with
it's aincient gift of the lip steady creating
activating passin vocal vibrations to the blind plus the seeing
human doesn't mean just being
be coming don't believe it just belife it
belongings or beloved rehearse it or recite it
while shining drop your guns and move your tongues
battle motivation in no time lyrics come
sometimes fun others run their mouth or away
my mind co beaming like an early sunray
one day we'll get the picture and all combine
less the talking bout mines is mine and become one mind
every piece of the puzzle has its place
to build the piece of the puzzle called the human race

taking it long enough we crush the formal journalistic
dyslexic critters talk backwards to rap words
I'm sure raising my hands with questions and demands
statements and a plan with a map of the land
(chorus)

8. Cuz it's what I'm listening to right now...

(talking)
m1 - ugh, know what I mean?
stic.man - I can't believe these niggas
m1 - gon' flip they scurve, these niggas, what?
stic.man - mo'f**kin star spangled banner shit
m1 - yeah, I can't even- yo, f**k that, i'm not f**kin with this
shit
i'm not f**kin with none of these niggas
stic.man - red, white and blue thugs, now
m1 - ugh
stic.man - that's how it's goin down niggas
m1 - straight r.b.g.'s (r.b.g.'s), for life, for life
stic.man - y'all talk bout the rocks on your watch
m1 - know that
stic.man - y'all niggas don't even know what time it is
m1 - yeah, ugh, you betta

chorus:


know your enemy, know yourself
that's the politic
george bush is way worse than bin laden is
know your enemy, know yourself
that's the politic
f.b.i., c.i.a., the real terrorists
know your enemy, know yourself
that's the politic
george bush is way worse than bin laden is
know your enemy, know yourself
that's the politic
c.i.a., f.b.i. the real terrorists


you got to watch what you say in these days and times
It's a touchy situation, lotta fear and emotion
september 11th
televised world-wide
suicide planes fallin like bombs from out the sky
they wasn't aimin at us
not at my house
they hit the world trade, the pentagon, and almost got the white
house
now everybody walkin round patriotic
how we gon' fight to keep freedom when we ain't got it?
you wanna stop terrorists?
start with the u.s. imperalists
ain't no track record like america's, see
bin laden was trained by the c.i.a
but I guess if you a terrorist for the u.s
then it's okay
uh huh


they try to make us think we crazy
but I know what they doin, they tryna put us back in slavery

check it, to get on welfare you gotta get your fingerprints
soon ya gotta do eyescans to get your benefits
now they got them cards to swipe, ain't no more foodstamps
shoulda seen it comin, now it's too late to get amped
and everything got a barcode
so they know what you got, when you got it, and what you still owe

you seen them projects, lately you better watch it
why they got us surrounded if money is the object?
why they use satellites to keep track of the criminals?
why they puttin jails in schools, is it subliminal?
cameras everywhere to protect us from one another
or is it the undercover, disguised as big brother
and even freedom of speech is limited
mad leaders done spoke up, and look at what these crackas did

(chorus)


and you ain't got to believe me
go 'head and listen to bush
the dope pusher on the t.v
what you think the war is for?
cause the greedy wantin more and more
we be hustlin the corridor
I would never join the military
one soldier to another, nigga holla if ya hear me
goin out to the best sons and daughters
don't be a lamb gettin led to the slaughter
I'ma keep ridin when my momma released
cause ain't no stoppin us now, dawg
freedom before peace
ugh
they got a plan for us?
we got a plan for them
and this time we gon' win
who in? you out? you in?
no doubt, we men
ain't no ridin the fence
It's called self-defense
It makes sense
when they tell us we gotta shackles on our brains (say what?)
I'll be damned if I sit here and let them put us back in chains

(singing)
at the bonfires of the city
I've seen blood (stic.man - a'what?...)
blood (stic.man - a'what?...)
blood (stic.man - a'what?...)

11. and cuz a new cd came on...
Though you failed at love and lost
And sorrow's turned your heart to frost
I will mend your heart again
Remember the feeling as a child
When you woke up and morning smiled
Its time its time its time you felt like that again

There is just no percentage in remembering the past
Its time you learned to live again and love at last
Come with me leave your yesterday your yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind

You stare at me with disbelief
You say for you there's no relief
But girl I swear it won't do you no harm
Don't sit there in your lonely room
Just looking back inside that gloom
Mama that's not were you belong

Come with me I'll take you where the taste of life is green
N' Everyday everyday hold on woman just got to be seen
Come with me leave your yesterday your yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind

Though you failed at love and lost
And sorrow's turned your heart to frost
I will mend your heart again
Remember the feeling as a child
When you woke up and morning smiled
Its time its time its time you felt like that again

There is just no percentage in remembering the past
Its time you learned to live again and love at last
Come with me leave your yesterday your yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind

9. Polaris
Tremble you weaklings, cower in fear
I am your ruler, land, sea and air
Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall
I am a nuclear murderer I am Polaris
Ready to pounce at the touch of a button
My system locked in on military gluttons
I rule on land, air and sea
Pass judgement on humanity
Winds blow from the bowels of hell
Will we give warning, only time will tell
Satan rears his ugly head, to spit into the wind
I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils
Launch the Polaris, the end doesn't scare us
When will this cease
The warheads will all rust in peace
Bomb shelters filled to the brim
Survival such a silly whim
World leaders sell missiles cheap
Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps

High priest of holocaust, fire from the sea
Nuclear winter spreading disease
The day of final conflict
All pay the price
The third world war
Rapes peace, takes life
Back to the start, talk of the part
When the earth was cold as ice
Total dismay as the sun passed away
And the days where black as night

Eradication of Earth's
Population loves Polaris

10. Styrofoam Boots...
Well all's not well
but i'm told that it'll all be quite nice
you'll be drowned in boots like Mafia
but your feet will still float like Christ's
and i'll be damned
they were right
i'm drowning upside down
my feet afloat like Christ's
i'm in heaven
trying to figure out which stack
they're going to stuff us atheists into
when Peter and his monkey laugh
and i laugh with them
i'm not sure what at
they point and say
we'll keep you in the back
polishing halos, baking manna and gas
well some guy comes in looking a bit like everyone i ever seen
he moves just like crisco disco
breath 100% listerine
he says looking at something else
but directing everything to me
ever time anyone gets on their knees to pray
well it makes my telephone ring
and i'll be damned
he said you were right
no one's running this whole thing
he had a theory too
he said that god takes care of himself
and you of you
it's all nice on ice alright
and it's not day
and it's not night
but it's all nice on ice alright

13. Turn on the radio...nah, fuck it, turn it off
Fear is your only god
On the radio, nah, fuck it turn it off
Your savior my guillotine
Crosses and Kerosine

Merge on tha networks
Slagin' nerve gas
Up jump tha boogie then bang,
Let'em hang
While tha paranoid try ta stuff the void
Let's capture this am mayhem

Undressed, and blessed by the lord
The power pendulum swings by the umbillical cord
Shock around the clock
From noon 'til noon
Men grabbin' they mics
And stuff 'em into the womb

Terror's the product ya push
Well i'm a truth addict
Aw shit I gotta head rush

14. Love and Rockets - Kundalini Express
This is an announcement
For the transcendental run
The train now standing
Leaves for higher planes
Due to a derailment
There will be no other train
So why not hop on this one?
Hear the porter's glad refrain

Each carriage is connected
As is every single train
The rails all form a track
Which is a link within a chain
The chain's connected to another chain now
You will need no ticket
If you wish to ride on this train

All aboard the express kundalini
All aboard the express kundalini
All aboard the express kundalini

The song is in your heart
Your heart is in the song
The song is of the earth
The song is of the sky

You are disintegrating
Into everything around
Reintegrating
The worm we dug from higher ground
You have let go of ego
Ego is no longer you
Closer to nirvana
Since the porters whistle blew

All aboard the express kundalini
All aboard the express kundalini
All aboard the express kundalini

16. hard times indeed...
Fallen On Hard Times

Fallen on hard times but it feels good to know,
that milk and honey's just around the bend.
Running on bad lines we'd better run as we go,
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again.

Oh, dear Prime Minister it's all such a mess.
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth.
Oh, Mr. President you've been put to the test.
Come clean, for once, and hit us with the truth.

Looking for sunshine oh but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
handing us the same line again.

Fallen on hard times and there's nowhere to hide
Now they've re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the mink.
Turning on the peace sign and it's back to the wood.
Soon there will be raised a holy stink.

Somebody wake me. I've been sleeping too long.
Oh, I don't have to take this lying down.
You can keep your promises. Shove `em where they belong.
Don't ask me to the party, won't be around.

Looking for sunshine oh but it's black and it's cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey's just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
handing us the same line again.

Fallen on hard times. We've fallen on hard times.
Fallen on hard times. If you read between the lines.
Fallen on hard times.

18. Sounds like fun
Eight years of peace and prosperity
Scandal in the White House
An election's what we need
From coast-to-coast to Washington

So America voted on a president
But no one could count
On how the election went
From Florida to Washington

Goddamn, said one side
And the other said the same
Both looked pretty guilty
But no one took the blame
From coast-to-coast to Washington

So a new man in the White House
With a familiar name
Said he had some fresh ideas
But it's worse now since he came
From Texas to Washington

And he wants to fight with many
And he says it's not for oil
He sent out the National Guard
To police the world
From Baghdad to Washington

What is the thought process
to take a human's life
What would be the reason
to think that this is right
From Heaven to Washington
From Jesus Christ to Washington

20. Soul Talkin'
some girls need emotion
some girls just want some fun
some look for devotion
some just wanna run
some crave for affection
burnin' up inside
some need the direction
for the world outside

you can dance the dance 'til the mornin' comes
but i'll tell you where i'm coming from

i wanna hear your soul talkin'...

it's the heart of the matter
it's the root of the cause
it's the still of the moment
it's that heavenly pause
well i don't need a savior
and i don't need a slave
i just want to hear you
through that magnetic wave

what i need is a link to the inner mind
if you want to know my bottom line

i wanna hear your soul talkin'...

- Brenda Russell, for Chaka Khan's 'CK', 1987

yes baby :evilgrin:
