Lately, I've found myself singing,

I'm a-shavin' my shoulders
I'm gettin' it all shaved off.

That would be Homer in the bathroom

Last one that speaks to my heart.

Mike and the Mechanics: The Living Years

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door

I know that I'm a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I'm afraid that's all we've got

You say you just don't see it
He says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defense

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It's the bitterness that lasts

So don't yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different date
And if you don't give up, and don't give in
You may just be O.K.

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

I wasn't there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn't get to tell him
All the things I had to say

I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I'm sure I heard his echo
In my baby's new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late when we die
To admit we don't see eye to eye

Quiet like injustice and shame
Warm nights with potential for rain
This is the wait
The heavy hush of baited breath waiting for the weighty steps
Silky tones are maybe less timid cause of nervousness
What the hell is coming in
Hands laced together tight
Evolutionary fight, revolutionary might repeat it
Just like Michael Jones' eyes, big and saucer-like
Is it the return of Christ
Or just another scary night?
Lights flashing in the sky
# the drink I'm gettin' high
Maybe I can chase my mind off
What I see before my eyes
What the hell is goin' on
She disappeared right next to me
I didn't hear a #in' plane
But somethin's changing' destiny
God's crashin' into buildins'
What's up with the missin' children
People just be disappearin'
Why the hell am I still here?
Take another deeper toke
This is such a crazy joke
That little girl just turned to smoke
And faded with a smile dear
Then I saw a wolf with flowers
A thief in the night with power
One eye dark like royalty
The other blue like showers
Teeth sharp and forgivin'
How avengeful perceivin'
Told me that the hour has come
So why you sleepin'

Woke up in a daze
Room draped to purple haze
A rose on my chest and the pain
Teeth marks over my heart and bleedin' slowly
Wipe the blood kiss the rose on me
The rapture

Goin' home sir
Oh no, just another dream
Things ain't never what they seem
Dust drifting' in the beams
Twilight in the evenin'
Tell me if you're leavin'
Can't you hear the wolf breathin'
(2x)


Cise Star. Wolves with flowers.

Amazing poetry on wax. Paints a picture of the rapture in a most haunting and beautiful way.

A song about needing alcohol to sleep, with a s profound ending? ..

My first thought in the morning, sweet liquid sunsrise,
I tear away your paper coat, brings music to my eyes..
And you get straight to the point, always crystal clear, and you dissolve my insecurities, then you wash away my fears...


Everything I need, my sleep comes easy, everything that I need x4

You make me say the strangest things, I thought I'd never say, you fill my veins with confidence, say what I think and what I say.

Everything I need my sleep comes easy, everything I need I will sleep, I've got to get some sleep.. x8

The grim Reaper's on the theive as your conscious tries to leave, I still smell you when I breathe...
And he treats you like a guest, puts fire on your chest, then he lays you down to rest...

Everything I need I will sleep...

Intrepid - 2005

Imagine - Dragons

"Demons"

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold
When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale
I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide
No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
At the curtain’s call
It's the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl
So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made
Don't wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't wanna hide the truth
No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go
Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
I will stay outside
Watching you till
You come to your senses

Neneh Cherry Man child

OK, you're on your own, it's late
Your girlfriend is on another date
with the hero in your dream
Turn around, ask yourself.
So, you think you're gonna win this time Manchild?
Is it the pain of the drinking
Or the Sunday sinking feeling
The car never seems to work
When it's late your girlfriend's on a date
And the hero with her in your dream
In your sleep it seemed to like you
Turn around and ask yourself
Turn around ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you're in
Could you go undercover
And sell your brand new lover (could you)
Be someone else for a night
Maybe someone else will love you
You sell your soul for a tacky song
Like the one you hear on the radio
Turn around ask yourself
Turn around and ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you're in
Manchild, he will make you cry
Manchild, Manchild, Manchild

From Monday down to Friday
You're working on another man's car
Or is it in the factory?
It doesn't matter where you are

Just turn around and ask yourself is this communication
Accentuate the positive and give some illustration
See Manchild, you're no one, I turn the microphone on
Control communication when I'm kickin' it and so on
To the point where I need, air that I breathe
Into an audience that's waiting and ecstatic to receive-
For the meantime another mean rhyme, I keep on sayin' it
I know what the time is and the crowd will keep on playing it
Through the speaker boxes loud's my diagnosis
'Cause I believe in miracles and words in steady doses.
Enough R-E-S-P-E and C-T
Respect yourself express no stress the mike is easy
Just believe that all you need is the air that you breathe.
Turn around ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you're in
Manchild, he will make you cry
Manchild, Manchild, Manchild
He's the apple of your eye

Once bitten twice shy, why don't you bite me again
Just take it in right and go tell your friend
Are you ready for the words I turn the microphone on
A figure of speech to reach you at the back and so on
The style I'm stimulating dance floors
Raise your body temperature now and
This demands for power in the amp you know loud my diagnosis
'Cause I believe in miracles and words in heavy doses.

I am not sure if I just like the lyrics (and not "love" them) but paired with the music this is just an awesome song! A catchy tune about faded glory.

SweetwaterSuperstar

Do you wanna be rich?
Do you want to be a super star?
Well honey you already are, you already are
Do you wanna be rich?
Do you want to be a super star?
Well baby you already are, you already are...

Well I saw you today, you were looking more than OK
With your party dress on and your Cheshire grin
Yeah they all lined up to meet you, get a chance to be with who's who
Number 1, 3, 7, yeah, you know what I mean
And it just seems a shame, another changes, it's all the same
Another bar room queen on the boulevard

Do you wanna be rich?
Do you want to be a super star?
Well honey you already are, you already are
Do you wanna be rich?
Do you want to be a super star?
Well baby you already are, you already are...
A super star

Well I know you're just a kid, and we all know what you did
That will teach you not to spit where you might sleep
Yeah they all want to be you, get a taste of sugar cane
You know things aren't always what they seem

With your diamond pointed boots, yeah they look better than you do
Another worn out scene on the FMR
A tattered disposition, I think there's something missing
All the beautiful people you know who you are!

Do you wanna be rich?
Do you want to be a super star?
Well honey you already are, you already are
Do you wanna be rich?
Do you want to be a super star?
Well baby you already are, you already are...
A super star
A super star, yeah!

Give up your name, to a girl who's your new best friend
Come see the bright lights tomorrow
You want to read about yourself, and cut up the pages
Sugarcane you wear that name, sugar came and went away

Do you wanna be rich?
Do you want to be a super star?
Honey you already are, you already are
A superstar, star
A superstar, star
A star, a star...

Does anyone know why the OP got banned?

I find myself walking on egg shells here lately because I'm afraid I'm going to say the magic words to an unknown song that will open a trap door and I'll be gone too.

I was wondering the same.
I noticed that two members have been banned in this thread, which makes me guess that the OP may have had two accounts, but like I say: It's just a guess.

Hi there!

Michael Jackson

Will you be there

...
Everyone's Taking Control Of Me
Seems That The World's
Got A Role For Me
I'm So Confused
Will You Show To Me
You'll Be There For Me
And Care Enough To Bear Me...

Don't worry, he comes back with new accounts at least once a day so he'll be here. Dunno why he is so dang persistent but so far he hasn't outsmarted the mods. He (or she possibly) must have made 20 or more accts by now in the last couple weeks, they're very active as I'm always inadvertently running into them on the boards. Kinda funny, like a game, figuring out if its him/her lol.
*Shrugs*

On topic -- i like the lyrics to Hank Williams "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". Simple but effective.

Geez. I am way too gullible. (There's a joke in there someplace, oh, I get it, gillable...bad joke)

But how do you know that it's the same person over and over? What am I missing? Now I'm wondering if I'm foolishly welcoming the same person over and over.

I am stupid tired. It's been an absurd day, and I feel ashamed right now to say that. For so many, absurd would be a welcome improvement! So, I will go to bed and twitch. (Ever been that tired?)

Good night all. I'm still trying to figure out what my favorite song is. Ah, I remember. It's an old song I heard in the convent a gazillion years ago, Panis Angelicus. Odd taste for a young child.



Oh my! I think I just figured out how to do a link! YEA! Now, I can't fall through the trap door. That would be just too unfair.




False alarm. It says an error occurred. (My mom told me that)
edit on 22-3-2016 by ClownFish because: Premature glee over figuring out how to do a link. Sorry.

Sorry for the late reply, but it was really very difficult picking a single song and perhaps there are dozens of others I find to be beautiful these are some of the most. The band is My Dying Bride which use of course the traditional metal instruments(to a slower rhythm) and use classical such as violin and piano. They rise from England and continue to produce poetry.

The Light at the End of the World by My Dying Bride:

Small a speck in the wide blue sea.
'Tis the last of all the land.
A dweller upon our lonesome isle, the last lonely man

On weary nights under stars
he'd ofter lay and gaze.
Up towards the moon and stars,
The sun's dying haze.

Time and again Orion's light
filled our man with joy.
Within the belt he'd see his love
remembering her voice.

Such is life upon the isle
of torment and woe.
One day good, one day bad,
And some days even hope.

The light at the end of the world
burns bright for mile and mile
Yet tends the man its golden glow
in misery all the while.

For fifty years he stands and waits atop the light alone.
Looking down upon his isle the Gods have made his home

A deity felt sympathy
and threw our man a light
- 'Your woman you may see
again for a single night'.

- 'I'll tend the light for one more night
with the woman whom I love',
screamed the man with tearful eyes
to the deity above.

And so it was that very night
his lover did return.
To his arms and to their bed
together they did turn.

In deepest love and lust for life
entwined they did fall.
Lost within each other's arms they danced

Her hair, long and black,
The dark beauty of her eyes.
Olive skin and warm embrace,
her memory never dies.

Agony, like none before,
was suffered by our man.

Anger raged and misery too
like nothing ever before.

His sacrifice was not so great,
he insists upon the world.
Again he would crime, again he would pay,
for one moment with the girl

Long was the night filled with love.
For them the world was done.
Awoke he did to brightest light,
his woman and life had gone.

To his feet he leapt, to the sea he looked.
To the lighthouse on the stone.
The price is paid and from now on
he lives forever alone.

Fifty years have passed since then
and not a soul has he seen.
but his woman lives with him still
in every single dream.

Tis sad to hear how young love has died
to know that alone someone has cried.
but memories are ours to keep.
To live them again, in our sleep.

JUDAS PRIEST - ONE SHOT AT GLORY

Let me hear the battle cry
Calling on the wind
Let me see the banners fly
Before the storm begins

Let me feel the spirits soar
Destroy the enemy
Striking at the evil core
For all the world to see

This day will last forever
Deep in the hearts of men
Courage and victory
Remember, remember

One Shot At Glory
In the crossfire overhead
Fate stands before me
Words have all been said

One Shot At Glory
Driving hard and seeing red
Destiny calls me
One night of fire
One Shot At Glory

Fighting on with dignity
In life and death we deal
The power and the majesty
Amidst the blood and steel

I still hear the battle cry
The call goes on and on
I still see the banners fly
The battle's always won
