Neil Young / Sedan Delivery
« Reply #765 on: December 17, 2011, 06:34:40 PM »
Last night I was cool at the pool hall
Held the table for eleven games
Nothing was easier than the first seven
I beat a woman with varicose veins.

She stopped to see herself in the mirror
Fix her hair and hide heir veins
And she lost the game.

Next day I went to the dentist
He pulled some teeth and I lost some blood
We'd like to thank you for the cards you sent us
My wives and I were all choked up.

I recall how Caesar and Cleo
Made love in the Milky Way
They needed boats and armies to get there
I know there's a better way.

I saw the movie and I read the book
But when it happened to me
I sure was glad I had what it took
To get away.

Gotta get away, gotta get away
Gotta get away, gotta get away

I'm making another delivery
Of chemicals and sacred roots
I'll hold what you have to give me
But I'll use what I have to use.

The lasers are in the lab
The old man is dressed in white clothes
Everybody says he's mad
No one knows the things that he knows.

No one knows, no one knows
No one knows, no one knows

I'm sleepin' in every hallway
I just can't accept the stares
I'm using too many covers
I'm warm now so I don't care.

I'm thinkin' of no one in my mind
Sedan delivery is a job I know I'll keep
It sure was hard to find.

Hard to find. hard to find
Hard to find. hard to find

Motorhead-"I'm So Bad baby I Don't Care"
« Reply #766 on: December 18, 2011, 03:35:03 PM »
I make love to mountain lions,
Sleep on red-hot branding irons,
When I walk the roadway shakes,
Bed's a mess of rattlesnakes,
Voodoo child, black cat bone,
Scratch your back, hear you moan,
Get me up, you go down, tall building, single bound,
War and peace, peace and love, say it if you dare,
Iron fist, velvet glove,
I'm so bad, baby I don't care,
Black-hearted to the bone,
Older than The Rolling Stones,
Been to heaven, been to hell,
Bought the farm, and I won't sell,
Give and take, rise and fall, rise up and take it all,
Secret love, I won't tell, knock you up and ring your bell,
Kiss the whip, eat the gun,
Tell me it ain't fair, midnight victim, hit and run,
I'm so bad, baby I don't care,
I make the blind to see,
Shoot 'em full of R and B,
I make the lame to walk,
Come 'round and pop your cork,
Wham, bam, thank you ma'am,
I thought I heard the back door slam,
Overkill, walk the line, kill the lights, it's lampshade time,
On the road, on the lam, people running scared,
I'm everything they say I am, I'm so bad, baby I don't care.

The Kinks--"Big Sky"
« Reply #767 on: January 18, 2012, 08:40:24 PM »
Big Sky looked down on all the people looking up at the Big Sky.
Everybody pushing one another around
Big Sky feels sad when he sees the children scream and cry
But the Big Sky's too big to let it get him down.

Big Sky too big to cry
Big Sky too high to see
People like you and me

One day we'll be free, we won't care, just you see
'Til that day can be, don't let it get you down
When I feel that the world is too much for me
I think of the Big Sky, and nothing matters much to me.

Big Sky looked down on all the people who think they got problems
They get depressed and they hold their head in their hands and cry.
People lift up their hands and they look up to the Big Sky
But Big Sky is too big to sympathize

Big Sky's too occupied
Though he would like to try
And he feels bad inside
Big Sky's too big to cry

One day we'll be free, we won't care, just you wait and see
'Til that day can be, don't let it get you down.
When I feel that the world is too much for me
I think of the Big Sky, and nothing matters much to me.

Good lyrics from a great album, although Muswell Hillbillies is my all-time favorite by them.

Blue Oyster Cult - Veteran Of The Psychic Wars
« Reply #769 on: January 25, 2012, 11:01:38 PM »
You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
I've been living on the edge so long, where the winds of limbo roar
And I'm young enough to look at, and far too old to see
All the scars are on the inside
I'm not sure that there's anything left of me

Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains
Oh please, don't let these shakes go on.

You ask me why I'm weary, why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence, say it's time I changed and grew
But the war's still going on, dear, and there's no end that I know
And I can't stand forever
I can't say if we're ever gonna be free

Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains
Oh please, don't let these shakes go on.

You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
My energy is spent at last, and my armor is destroyed
I have used up all my weapons, and I'm helpless and bereaved
Wounds are all I'm made of
Did I hear you say that this is victory?

Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it
Send me to the rear
Where the tides of madness swell
And men sliding into hell
Oh please, don't let these shakes go on.

Rolling Stones--"Loving Cup"
« Reply #770 on: January 29, 2012, 11:45:49 PM »
I'm the man on the mountain, come on up.
I'm the plowman in the valley with a face full of mud.
Yes, I'm fumbling and I know my car don't start.
Yes, I'm stumbling and I know I play a bad guitar.

Just one drink from your loving cup.
Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk, yeah.

I'm the man who walks the hillside
in the sweet summer sun.
I'm the man that brings you roses
when you ain't got none.

Well I can run and jump and fish, but I won't fight
You if you want to push and pull with me all night.
Give me little drink from your loving cup.
Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk yeah.

I feel so humble with you tonight, yes tonight
Just sitting in front of the fire.
See your face dancing in the flame,
Feel your mouth kissing me again,
What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz,
What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz.

Oh, what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz.
Yes, I am nitty gritty and my shirt's all torn,
But I would love to spill the beans with you till dawn.
Give me little drink from your loving cup.
Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk, alright.

(Instrumental)

Give me that drink, give me that drink
Give me that drink from your loving cup
Give me that drink from your loving cup
Give me that drink

Give me that drink
Give me that drink
Give me that drink
Give me that drink
Give me that drink
Give me that drink

Rolling Stones--"Sway"
« Reply #771 on: January 29, 2012, 11:50:04 PM »
Did you ever wake up to find
A day that broke up your mind
Destroyed your notion of circular time

It's just that demon life has got you in its sway
It's just that demon life has got you in its sway

Ain't flinging tears out on the dusty ground
For all my friends out on the burial ground
Can't stand the feeling getting so brought down

It's just that demon life has got me in its sway
It's just that demon life has got me in its sway

There must be ways to find out
Love is the way they say is really strutting out

One day I woke up to find
Right in the bed next to mine
Someone that broke me up with a corner of her smile

It's just that demon life has got me in its sway
It's just that demon life has got me in its sway

Rolling Stones--"Gimme Shelter"
« Reply #772 on: January 29, 2012, 11:53:17 PM »
Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'
My very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

Keith Richards & the X-pensive Winos "Wicked As It Seems"
« Reply #773 on: February 04, 2012, 09:48:51 PM »
It's just as wicked as it seems
Just run out of dreams
Better of two evils, babe
It's one time too much
Baby how can I say what's in my heart - what's in my heart
Come a long way, well since you beat it up

As wicked as it seems yeah
Why don't you get - get all over me
Why don't you get - get all over me
Just a two way street, but now it goes one way
And now for me there's no way out - one time
Why don't you get - get all over me

As wicked as it seems
It's playtime, but it's far too late
It's gonna too hard on, hard on it - hard on it
What you gonna give
It's not enough, not enough for me
So I soften the blow, so the bruises don't show
I've got the expertise
No broken necks
No broken hearts
Well, we used your deck
All I did was play the cards - now the check
Now I find it's not enough - it's not enough for me
Now you want to give, is not enough - not enough for me

As wicked as it seems
Why don't you get, get all over me - one time
Why don't you get, get all over me
It's easy getting in
Why don't you get, get all over me
But it's a hard way out babe
Why don't you get - get all over me

Never Again - DISTURBED
Songwriters: Donegan, Dan; Draiman, David; Wengren, Mike;

Never again
Never again

They have a frightening desire for genocide
They wouldn't stop 'til what was left of my family died
Hell bent on taking over the world
You couldn't hide in the shout of conformity

We can't forget how we were devastated by the beast
And now we pleaded with the captors for release
We were hunted for no reason at all
One of the darkest times in our history

All that I have left inside is a soul that's filled with pride
I tell you never again, oh
In a brave society, didn't end up killing me
Scream with me, never again, not again, no

A generation that was persecuted endlessly
Exterminated by the Nazi war machine
We will remember, let the story be told
To realize how we lost our humanity

You dare to tell me that there never was a holocaust
You think that history will leave the memory lost
Another Hitler using fear to control
You're gonna fail this time for the world to see

All that I have left inside is a soul that's filled with pride
I tell you never again, oh
In a brave society, didn't end up killing me
Scream with me, never again, not again, no

All that I have left inside is a soul that's filled with pride
I tell you never again, oh
In a brave society, didn't end up killing me
Scream with me, never again, oh

For the countless souls who died, their voices fill this night
Sing with me, never again, oh
They aren't lost, you see, the truth will live in me
Believe me, never again!

Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
I been up all night, and no suicide clock works

Seem to be, seem to be, seem to be no compromise Satan
Seem to be, seem to be, seem to be no compromise Satan
Lose the pride - don't shake me Lucifer
You are all I receive

Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
I been up all night, and no suicide clock works
They're shakin 'em down left, they're friskin 'em up right
They're shakin 'em down left, and they're friskin 'em up right
Lose the pride - don't shake me Lucifer
With the devil's hell's fire

Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
I been up all night, and no suicide clock works

Now the world was shakin, looking like it shake to bits
Now the world was shakin, looking like it shake to bits
Lose the pride - don't shake me Lucifer
I've had enough of it

Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
Don't shake me, don't shake me Lucifer
I been up all night, and no suicide clock works

Roky Erickson--"I Have Always Been Here Before"
« Reply #777 on: February 08, 2012, 03:44:36 PM »
It seems like a bell rings time and deja vu
everything is familiar,  being here with you
all you ever had before you've had to understand
now all you have to do is want to have at your command

I have always been here before
allowing my mind's call of no love
incorporate more never stops his flow
I have always been here before

that that is pleasing
that that is real
that that is forever keeps filling never filled
that that snuck up on you in the night
that that you remember him an early child delight
that that was supposed to have frightened you
but somehow you never took to fright

I have always been here before
allowing my mind's call of no love
incorporate more never stops his flow
I have always been here before

from the gargoyles to stone henge
from the sphynx to the pyramids
Lucifer's temples praising the devil rites
til the devils clock it strikes midnight

I have always been here before
allowing my mind's call of no love
incorporate more never stops his flow
I have always been here before

If you would have justice in this world, then begin to see that a human being is not a means to some end.  People are not commodities.  When human beings are just to one another government becomes obsolete and real freedom is born; SPIRITUAL ANARCHY.
