What are the lyrics to one of your favorite songs?

(On-Line Lyric Source)

ONE of my favorites:

[U][B]Powerslave[/B][/U][B] by Iron Maiden[/B]

Into the abyss I'll fall-the eye of Horus
Into the eyes of the night-watching me go
Green is the cat's eye that glows-in this temple
Enter the risen Osiris-risen again.
[B]
CHORUS:[/B]
Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I don't wanna die, I'm a god, why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies, all around is laid waste.
And in my last hour,
I'm a slave to the power of death.

When I was living this lie-fear was my game
People would worship and fall-drop to their knees
So bring me the blood and red wine for the one to succeed me
For he is a man and a god-and he will die too.

[B] CHORUS[/B]

Now I am cold but a ghost lives in  my veins,
Silent the terror that reigned-marbled in stone
Shell of a man God preserved-a thousand ages
But open the gates of my hell-I will strike from the grave.

[B] CHORUS[/B]

[B][U]Upward Over the Mountain[/U]   [/B]by Iron And Wine[B][I][U]
[/U][/I][/B] 
Mother don't worry, I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
Mother don't worry, I've got some money I saved for the weekend
Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me
Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying upwards over the mountain

Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother I lost it all of the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
Mother forgive me I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons can be birds taken broken up to the mountain

Mother don't worry I've got a coat and some friends on the corner
Mother don't worry she's got a garden we're it planting together
Mother remember the night that the dog had her pups in the pantry
Blood on the floor and the fleas in their paws
And you cried 'til the morning

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying always over the mountain

Konstantine - Something Corporate:

I can't imagine all the people that you know
and the places that you go
When the lights are turned down low
and I don't understand all the things you've seen
but I'm slipping in between
You and your big dreams
It's always you
In my big dreams
And you tell me that its over
Wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clovers
And your restless
And I'm naked
You gotta get out
You cant stand to see me shakin'
No
Could you let me go?
I didn't think so
And you don't wanna be here in the future
So you say the presents just a pleasant interruption to the past
And you don't wanna look much closer
'Cause your afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had
Crashed
And it did
Because of me

And then you bring me home
Afraid to find out that your alone oh
and I'm sleeping in your living room
But we don't have much room to live

And I had these dreams in them I learned to play guitar
Maybe cross the country
Become a rockstar
And there was hope in me that I could take you there
But damnit you're so young
Well I don't think I care
And if I hurt you
Then I'm sorry
Please don't think that this was easy

And then you bring me home
'Cause we both know what it's like to be alone oh
And I'm dreaming in your living room
But we don't have much room to live

And konstantine is walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good
Standing in her underwear
And I was thinking
What I was thinkin
We've been drinkin' and it doesn't get me anywhere
My konstantine came walking down the stairs
And all that I could do was touch her long blond hair
And I've been thinkin'
But it hurts me thinking
That these nights when we were drinking
No they never got us anywhere
No

This is because I can spell confusion with a 'K'
And I can like it
It's to dying in another's arms
And why I had to try it
It's to Jimmy Eat World
And those nights in my car
When the first star you see
May not be a star
I'm not your star
Isn't that what you said
What you thought this song meant

And if this is what it takes
Just to lie with my mistakes
And live with what I did to you
All the hell I put you through
I always catch the clock
It's 11:11
Now you wanna talk
It's not hard to dream
You'll always be my konstantine
My konstantine
They'll never hurt you like I do
No they'll never hurt you like I do
No,no,no, no, no, no, no, no

This is to a girl
Who got into my head
With all the pretty things she did
Hey
Ya know
You keep me up in bed
This is to a girl
Who got into my head
With all these fucked up things I did
Hey
Maybe
Baby you could keep me up in bed
My konstanine

You spin around me like a dream
We played out on this movie screen
And I said
Did you know I missed you(x7)
I miss you

And then you bring me home
And we go to sleep
But this time not alone
And I know
And you'll kiss me in your living room
I know
I know you miss me in your living room
'Cause these nights I think
Maybe that I miss you in my licing room
But we dont have much room
I said does anybody need that room
Because we all need a little more room
To live

My konstantine...

If you feel that is sad... see this:

Poetic Tragedy by " The Used "

The cup is not half empty as pessimists say
as far as he sees nothing's left in the cup
A whole cup full of nothing for him to indulge
since the voice of ambition has long since been shut up

A singer, a writer,
he's not dreaming now of going no where
he gave heed to nothing
and all that he was is just a tragedy

So he voyages in circles succeeds getting nowhere
and submits to the substance that first got him there, there, there, there

violent frustration
he cries out to God or just no one
is there a point to this madness
and all that he was is just a tragedy

He feels alone
His heart in his hand
He's alone
He feels like
I feel

Then on that last day he breaks
and he stood tall
then he yelled, then he yelled
(Why world? WHY WORLD?? Hate you! HATE YOU!!! BYE WORLD!!!!!!)

violent frustration
he cries out to God or just no one
is there a point to this madness
and all that he was is just a tragedy

~S.O.S.~:

TY for this post. I can relate to much of this (or, at least I could much in my past). Time has healed a lot as has God. But tragedy always lingers like the smell of burnt offerings. I try to learn from it I suppose. :-|

BLACK PLANET by The Sisters of Mercy

So still so dark all over Europe
And I ride down the highway 101
By the side of the ocean headed for sunset
For the kingdom come

On a

Black planet hanging over the highway
Out of my mind's eye
Out of the memory
Black world out of my mind

Still so dark all over Europe
And the rainbow rises here
In the western sky
The kill to show for
At the end of the great white pier
I see a

Run around in the radiation
Tune in turn on burn out in the acid rain on a black planet

Very touchy one:

Pick up the bones by Alice Cooper

Collecting pieces of my family
In an old pillow case
This one has a skull

But it don't have a face
These look like the arms of father so strong
And the ring on this finger

Means my Grandma is gone
Here's some legs in a cloud
Where my sister once played

Here's some mud made of blood
And these teeth are decayed
The ear of my brother

The hand of a friend
And I just can't
Put them back together again

Pick up the bones
And set them on fire
Follow the smoke going higher and higher
Pick up the bones
And wish them goodnight
Pray them a prayer and turn out the light

There are stains on the floor
Where kitchen once stood
There are ribs on the fire place
Mixed with the wood

There are forces in the air
Ghosts in the wind
Some bullets in the back
And some scars on the skin

There were demons with guns
Who marched through this place
Killing everything that breathed
They're an inhuman race

There are holes in the walls
Bloody hair on the bricks
And the smell of this hell
Is making me sick

Pick up the bones
And set them on fire
Follow the smoke going higher and higher
Pick up the bones
And wish them goodnight
Pray them a prayer and turn out the light

Pick up the bones
And set them on fire
Follow the scope going higher and higher
Pick up the bones
And wish them goodnight
Pray them a prayer and turn out the light

Now maybe someday
The suns gonna shine
Flowers will bloom
And all will be fine

But nothing will grow
On this burnt cursive ground
Cuz the breathe of the death
Is the only sound

The Fallen Angel by Iron Maiden

Azazel is beside you and he's playing a game.
Demons are inside you and they're making a prayer.
Watching-- are they hiding-- as they wait for the time,
For the Devil to get ready to take over your mind.

You and only God will know--
What can be done?
You and only God will know--
I am the only one.
You and only God will know--
I am the chosen one.

[B] Chorus[/B]
~~~~~~
Could it be it's the end of the (our) world?
All the things that we cherish and love?
Nothing left but to face this all of my own,
'Cause I am the chosen one.

Beaten Fallen Angel--
But I've risen again!
And the power is inside me
 I've decided to pray.
As I wait for Armageddon
And it's coming my way.
It's an honor to be chosen
and I wait for the day.

"Ich Will" video by Rammstein (German)


**Below are the English Lyrics to this Song:

[U][B]I Want[/B][/U]  by Rammstein

I want you to trust me
I want you to believe me
I want to feel your eyes
I want to control every heartbeat

I want to hear your voices
I want to disturb the peace
I want you to see me well
I want you to understand me

I want your fantasy
I want your energy
I want to see your hands
I want to go down in applause

Do you see me?
Do you understand me?
Do you feel me?
Do you hear me?
Can you hear me?
(We hear you)
Can you see me?
(We see you)
Can you feel me?
(We feel you)
I don't understand you

I want

We want you to trust us
We want you to believe everything from us
We want to see your hands
We want to go down in applause - yeah

Can you hear me?
(We hear you)
Can you see me?
(We see you)
Can you feel me?
(We feel you)
I don't understand you

Can you hear us?
(We hear you)
Can you see us?
(We see you)
Can you feel us?
(We feel you)
We don't understand you

I want

Cenotaph by Bolt Thrower


Definition of "Cenotaph" from Wikipedia

[IMG]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/45/Portland.stone.cenotaph.london.arp.jpg/180px-Portland.stone.cenotaph.london.arp.jpg[/IMG]

The Cenotaph, London

A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honour of a person or group of persons whose remains are elsewhere. It can also be the initial tomb for a person that has since been interred elsewhere. The word derives from the Greek words kenos, one meaning being "empty" and taphos, "tomb". Although the vast majority of cenotaphs are erected in honour of specific individuals, many of the best-known cenotaphs are instead dedicated to the memories of groups of individuals, such as the war dead of one specific country or empire.

Cenotaph by Bolt Thrower

Eeeeks.. all these guys do is keep on growling..hehe not my type. Looks like you are absolute death metal, grindcore fan...
Even I was once, when I was all downtrodden, thought there was nothing left to lose, everything was gone and all that.

And with lyrics like these, my emotions were intensified..

Chopped in half

Feel the blood spill from your mouth
With rotting ways comes destiny
Feel the soul taking over, bleed!

Chopped in half

Feel the blood spill from your mouth
With rotting ways comes destiny
Feel the soul taking over, bleed!

But now I am trying to change the way I look at life, trying to be a better human..coz I have learnt that life always sucks, its your responsibility to make it worthwhile and enjoy your living.:mrgreen:

:cheesy: ~S.O.S.~:

Hello:

Well, "Looks like you are absolute death metal, grindcore fan..."--no, actually not at all. I like this one death metal band(Bolt Thrower), but really my fave (and really only) metal is Iron Maiden. I like Rammstein a lot, and heavyrock like Coheed Cambria, Led Zeppelin and Queen, but usually I listen to stuff like: Mozart, Ian Brown, The Petshop Boys, Tom Waits, The Pogues (Irish), Prince, 80's music\pop... The list goes on and on.

I changed (trying to change the way) I look at life, also: I am a pessimest (usually) but, with God and my religion, I have discovered a much-ignored fountain to drink from which not only betters my life but I hope betters the lives (the world) of those around me.

Something a bit different:

Keep What Ya Got
by Ian Brown

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTin4M3x5kQ

Yesterday came suddenly
Tomorrow will receive
Today now you're at the wheel
I'll ask how does it feel

Yesterday when Heaven's gates
I contemplate, they seem so far
Today they ain't so far away
And almost see my train

Keep what ya got, by giving it all away
Keep what ya got, by giving it all away
Keep what ya got, hold it, don't stop
Keep what ya got, by giving it all away

When your halo slips for good,
You'll have to wear your hood
Could you feel the breeze of fear
On all the cynics, I'm ya mimick
All you losers, all abusers
Wasting all my precious energy

Keep what ya got, by giving it all away
Keep what ya got, by giving it all away
Keep what ya got, hold it, don't stop
Keep what ya got, by giving it all away

Remember where you came from
Sisters who told ya on a rainy day
They said that Heaven holds a place
For all of those who pray
And if you don't believe in piety
Then you don't care anyway
Nobody or nothings ever getting in your way

Even as you pray to the lord
But don't feel you belong
No one's gonna notice if you never right no wrong
And if you and your next neighbour
Yeah, you don't quite get along
No one's gonna notice if you're singing anyway

Insomnia by Faithless:

I only smoke weed when I need to
And I need to get some rest yo
Where's the sense?
And I confess I burned a hole in the matress, YES, YES
It was me
I feel guilty

And at the count of three I pull back the duvet
To the refridgerator
Only one dry potato
No lie
Not even bread or jam
As the light above my head went BANG

Greasy
Somthing's all over me
Insomnia please release me
And let me dream of making mad love on the heath
Tearing off tights with my teeth :p 
But there's no relief no peace
I toss and turn without cease

Creepy noises make my skin creep
Oh if I could only get some sleep
I need to get some sleep
I can't get no sleep

Steven.

The line "it starts with love for foliage and ends in camouflage" from Something Wicked by British Sea Power is cracking.

As for a whole song, it would probably be something by British Sea Power too...

...Bat Country by Aveneged Sevenfold....

He who makes a beast out of himself, gets rid of the pain of being a man...

Caught here in a fiery blaze, I won't lose my will to stay.
I tried to drive all through the night,
the heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights.
No oasis here to see, the sand is singing deathless words to me.

Chorus
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

As I adjust to my new sights the rarely tired lights will take me to new heights.
My hand is on the trigger I'm ready to ignite.
Tomorrow might not make it but everything's all right.
Mental fiction follow me; show me what it's like to be set free.

Chorus
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I donĀ“t want the attention.

So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long my vision's so unclear.
Now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem.

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won't lose my will to stay.
These eyes won't see the same, after I Flip today.

Sometimes I don't know why we'd rather live than die,
we look up towards the sky for answers to our lives.
We may get some solutions but most just pass us by,
don't want your absolution cause I can't make it right.
I'll make a beast out of myself, gets rid of all the pain of being a man.

Chorus
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone).
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone).
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.

So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long my vision's so unclear.
Now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem.
I've known it from the start all these good ideas will tear your brain apart.
Scared but you can follow me I'm too weird to live but much too rare to die.

Tool - Wings for Marie
You...
You believed...
You believed in moments not conceived
You believed in me

A passionate spirit
Uncompromised
Boundless and open
A light in your eyes that
Could end all lies

Broken, broken
Fell at the hands of this moment so that I wouldn't see
It was you who prayed for me
So what have I done?
To be a son to an angel?
What have I done
To be worthy?

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescence
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this selfish question, but
What am I to say to all these ghouls tonight?
She never told a lie,
... well might have told a lie,
But never lived one.
Didn't have a life,
Didn't have a life,
But surely saved one.
So I'm alright
Now it's time for us to let you go.
