"Different Names For The Same Thing" (yeah another DCforC-sorry! I am in a mood! but this is a short one)

Alone on a train aimless in wonder
An outdated map crumbled in my pocket
But I didn't care where I was going
'Cause they're all different names for the same place.

The coast disappeared when the sea drowned the sun
And I knew no words to share with anyone
The boundaries of language I quietly cursed
And all the different names for the same thing

There are different names for the same things
There are different names for the same things...

Beachcoma,

I feel the same way you do about rap. It changed into bling bling and music meant for the rich white boys in the suburbs. There is still some rap groups out there that see this and "keep it real" so to speak. This is a rap group called "Jurassic Five." Song is called "If You Only Knew."

[Chali 2na]
Never think just for
#s and giggles
Do we spit sylable riddles
For bits and kibbles
So chics can wiggles and shake
Cause this image is fake

[Akil]
I'm tryin hard to relate
In a place filled with so much hate

[Soup]
Some brothers debate
Some love or some hate
Whatever the case
Its all about the choices you make
That's the reason your balloon'll deflate

[Chali 2na]
But to relate
We tryin' to take rap back to its primitive state, wait

[Marc 7]
No overnight success or runnin' with vets
Just pure unadulterated work progress
I'm willin' to bet the farm
You'd give your right arm
For a piece of the pie
Ask yourself, Why?

[Chorus:]
[All]
If you only knew
The trials and tribulations we been through
But if you only knew
We're real people homey, just like you
We humble, but don't mistake us for some corny ass crew
What we do, is try to give you what you ain't used to
[Marc 7]
Soul music, somethin' we can all relate to

[Akil]
Yo yo, I ams what I am and thats all I can be
Uh, no more no less what you're seein' is me
Akil the emcee dubbed the U-I-S-C, uh
Wise, intelligent, God did bless me

[Soup]
Yes we, rock up off the S-B freshly
Especially dangerous rough and deadly

[All]
The pimp positioner, tip the Richter...Scale

[Chali 2na]
Alone we sink together we sail and prevail
The rum raisin comin through guns blazin'
Some of you duns runnin' ones with none savin'
Complainin', me and my clan are unscathen
From the soul comes somethin' amazin'

[Chorus]

[talking in background]

[Akil]
Yo, how many times I got to hear
Some fanatic in my ear
Tellin' me I got to keep it real
When they ain't payin' my bills
Or feedin' my kids, judgin' me on how I live
If my crib in the hood or if its up in the hills?

[Marc 7]
Have you forgetten who you are?
Oh, you think yo a star
Why you frontin'? (You ain't nothin')
You went from nothin' to somethin'
But somethin' means nothin' if ya people still wantin'

[Chali 2na]
And ya got money and givin' them nothin'

[All]
Flossin' and frontin'

[Soup]
Ya game of sharades
The way you behave
The image you save
Yeah brother thats one big parade
I'm sick of your ways
I'm sittin here spittin a phrase
Next time they smile and they wave
They probably be with a gaze

[Chorus]

[Marc 7]
Soul..soul..soul..soul..soul

One more. The song is called "One of Them."

[Chali 2na]
Yo, Your image deceives what your people perceive
Some people believe what the media feeds, TV MCs
That try to bark hollow...pretend to be harsh fellows
But be yellow and softer than marshmallows

[All]
Oh you one of them niggas!

[Juju]
Homo I'ma hurt ya feelings
Name brand talkers...pretty ass earrings
Where are all your women I ain't seen you with one
The only bitch that ever loved you gotta call you her son
Yeah, you that nigga...choch ass nigga
No heart...won't even approach us nigga
So you be humble man...stay in your place
We them niggas that rumble and get in your face

[All]
Oh you one of them niggas!

[Marc 7]
Concerned with lookin' cute...nails done, eyes plucked
Homie, what the #?...I mean really whassup
Help a brother understand
How self-admiration takes the soul of a man
Damn, vain ass, plain ass, nothing ass niggas
Get your punk ass out the goddamn mirror

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Cuts: DJNu-Mark]
Real niggas do real things and that's a fact

[All]
Oh you one of them niggas!

[Cuts: DJNu-Mark]
Are you in with the heart or are you in it for the funds

[All]
Oh you one of them niggas!

[Akil]
Uh Mr. Know-It-All, flossy floss, all talk
Head Mr. A&R ...we ain't hard, who the # said we was?
You never heard us holla...Crip or Blood or I'm a thug

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Zaakir (Soup)]
You wanna rhyme like that?
You won't get signed like that
Ya'll need the R&B track
Or call some sister sluts
Tell them...back that thang up
'Cause only real niggas spit game that much

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Chali 2na]
Right off the bat...what you speak is contrived
Its like you're cloaked in a Pinocchio vibe
And when you lie...you play with the dream
You make it decay at the seams
You can fix it...if you say what you mean

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Juju]
Pick and choose who you beef with
Leap froggy, Show me how real you keep it
And know that you pussy all underneath it
Now it's time for the 5 to expose your secret

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Cuts: DJNu-Mark]
Shake up...foo's be faker than make up...HA!

[All]
Oh you one of them niggas!

[Cuts: DJNu-Mark]
Are you in with the heart or are you in it for the funds

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Cuts: DJNu-Mark]
Knock this pretty boy kaz on they ass...each time we drop...kid

[All]
Oh you one of them niggas!

[Marc 7]
No time for idle chattin'...folks say what's happening
'Til we go platinum...house in the Hamptons
Bank account large...give sha-tan my cold regards
There's a killer at large...and he murders his team?
'Cause he strips black teens of all their dreams

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Akil]
Yeah what you trying to prove
Keep it gangsta where I'm from...means the G's move
Now everybody wanna pop that #
Walk like a Crip...what part of the game is this?
Don't get caught up the twist of some gang bang #
But then you probably would...fascinated with the hood

[All]
You one of them niggas!

[Zaakir (Soup)]
Man...enough is enough...I know that you're ghetto
But thinkin' you tough?...your possie is deep
And when you speak it's # the police
Am I to believe...is that the way you really would be
If only we see...what there is no cameras allowed
And your bodyguard didn't have to hold your hand through the crowd

[All]
You one of them niggas!

OK OK.. One more i swear.

"Thin Line"

[Chali 2na]
Yo, this is a lesson in friendship
The depths of a kinship
What women and men begin with, and then slip
My pen drips
As I scribble my thoughts on thin strips
Of emotion
A fraction, seduction, attraction
Eruption of passion
Corrupts if a lasted friendship's involved
But love to cross the line
But that's why we built these walls

[Hook: Nelly Furtado]
We been friends for a long time, a very close friend of mine
Love you like you was mine, but respect a thin line
I love you like you was mine, think about you all the time
Very close friend of mine, but respect a thin line

[Akil]
Opposite's attract
When the female and male come in contact
Sticky situation in fact
Tryin not to let the feelings catch
But there's a thin line between both of y'all
So you respect that
And entertain the idea, but get brought back
To reality, and could you really live with that?
Decision, based on intuition
You love and keep your distance
Hug and kiss in friendship

[Marc 7]
An ongoing kinship, we was people to begin with
Disrespect was not intended
but your feelings sparked the sentence
Sometimes you're too intense in your quest to invent
The perfect man, please understand, my rhyme is your repent

[(Hook) - repeat 2X]

[Soup]
Man, too bad that we became friends first
I'm not on expert on how relationships should work
But, (echos) from the minute it as known
It changed the whole tone on how we spoke on the phone
Yo, it was cool but I felt it wasn't enough
And I was stuck when your moms would pick it up
Over you, all my buddies would swoon
But I felt we were in tune, you let me up in your room. (Damn)
But to me girl, you're still off limits
No matter all the times that I hit it. (Yo, whatchu doin after this?)
Infactuation was authentic, but yo I just pretended
So I wouldn't lose the friendship
Maybe, I should spill all my guts
Or write a letter, then tear it up
Or do a song, just to say what's up
I want ... just ... a touch

[(Hook) - repeat 2X]

[Nelly Furtado]
I can't do this anymore
See my heart just spills out when you walk in the door
Friendship turns into lust and this only tip
That I can't comprehend even if I knew it
Can't do justice to these things that I'm feeling
You got someone else, don't wanna be caught stealing
Hell if she knew she would never leave us alone
in the roo-ooo-ooom

[Chali 2na]
This was a lesson in friendship
I stress in this sentence
Should women and men be friends first?
And then slip?
My pen drips as I scribble my thoughts on thin strips
of devotion

[Akil]
Opposites attract
And best friends make a perfect match
If you only knew that
Once you cross, ain't no turning back
The minute you let him in it and he hit that
That's that

[Marc 7]
We was people to begin with, but you was too relentless
Jeporidizing kinship, respect is intended
Resolve is my intent
While we got it in
I'm tryin to salvage a friendship

The Black Crowes
"Bad Luck Blue Eyes, Goodbye"

With my winter time
My idols and stage fright
In another night
Where the lights are loud and bright

One dream from waking up saved
Too shy to hold in the rage

I know no luxury
Of knowing what your eyes read
I know one million ways
To always pick the wrong thing to say

A love that you never gave
Always a time zone away
It's not out of spite
I know what's right

Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye

Sometimes a memory
Only sees what it wants to believe
And what's filled in between
Are days and nights that don't mean a thing

Such a simple suicide
A second chance never tried
And you don't understand
I need a helping hand

So you think that you've seen it all
Is that a fact?
So out your mouth a dictionary
Spouts about this and that
You got your do's, your don'ts
Because and why
I don't trust no one who don't
Take their own advice

Sailor-I'm not much into rap-maybe because I've only been exposed to what you guys call the bling rap etc...but those are decent lyrics...and man... that last song...damn...can't say I don't like the lyrics-may have to go see if I can download the song and give it a listen.

Ah LudaChris saves the day for me! Black Crowes-yes, indeed, thats what I need today-thanks! Here's one back

"Seeing Things" by Black Crowes

I find it hard to shed a tear
You brought it all on yourself my dear
Wrong, yes I may be
Don’t leave a light on for me
’cause I ain’t comin’ home
It hurts me baby to be alone
Yes, it hurts me baby

A hundred years will never ease
Hearing things I won’t believe
I saw it with my own two eyes
All the pain that I can’t hide
And this pain starts in my heart
And this love tears us apart
You won’t find me bent down on my knees
Ain’t bendin’ over backwards baby
Not to please

’cause I’m seeing things for the first time
I’m seeing things for the first time, oh yeah
I’m seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life

I used to dream
Of better days that never came
Sorry ain’t nothin’ to me
I’m gone and that’s the way it must be
So please I’ve done my time
Lovin’ you is such a crime
You won’t fine me down on, on my knees
Won’t fine me over backwards baby
Just to please

’cause I’m seeing things for the first time
Im seeing things for the first time
Seeing things for the first time
Oh I’m seeing things for the first time
Yeah, seeing things for the first time
I’m seeing things for the first time
Yeah, I’m seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life

Well... Here is some "Government Mule." SOng is called "Beautifully Broken."

Mysterious - blown in with the night
All this beauty captured in a frame
Visibly shaken but never stirred - drives them insane
I see the way she plays her men - and I know I've got to know her name

She's so beautifully broken - shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted - Here I go again

I see the way she casts her spell - It's like drowning in moonlight
Discards them when she's done - they're lost in her twilight
I watch her move from star to star and I wonder why,
why it feels so right

She's so beautifully broken - you can hardly see the flaw
Especially from a distance - which is always how I fall

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones - the ones that never learned to let go
And why do I lie to myself and pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so beautifully broken

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones - the ones that
Don't know how to let go
And why do I lie to myself and pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so beautifully broken

She's so beautifully broken - shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted - Here I go again
Here I go again

One more from Government Mule... "Little Toy Brain."

So you thought you could handle it - yeah didn't they all
So look at the shape that you're in
But fools never compromise - they go out in flames
So out with the old, in with the new
What in the world has happened to you

What goes on in that little toy brain
Who'll sweep out the wreckage, who'll sing the refrain
And after the smoke clears - is there anything left
Did you wash it all away

So you cried like a baby asking for more - still you don't know where you've been
Ain't it high time you woke up, took a good look around
You're killing yourself - damaging your soul - all in the name of sweet rock and roll

What goes on in that little toy brain
Who'll sweep out the wreckage, who'll sing the refrain
And after the smoke clears - is there anything left
Did you wash it all away

"Hold me, I'm lonely," you say to yourself
The only one who will listen now
So what does it mean when you finally explain you were never good at apologies

I've got some pride left, but it's plain to see
It's been earmarked for emergency
So what ever happened to your blind faith - did it crumble away
Like me, like me

What goes on in that little toy brain
Who'll sweep out the wreckage, who'll sing the refrain
And after the smoke clears - is there anything left
Did you wash it all away

Did you wash it all away
Did you wash it all away
Tell me what goes on in that little toy brain

Sailor-you and your damn jam rock! Nah, it perfect for today, so here's a little Gov't Mule to throw back at you I love the different ways they rock-and love the sound of this song as much as the lyrics:

"Blind Man in the Dark"

All I ask from anyone
Is that they ask nothing from me
Stared so long at the future
That I'm blind to reality
Come a time will watch our lives
Slip into the sea
All I ask from anyone
Is that they ask nothing from me

Dreams fly by like a thousand railroad trains
Egos steadfast like mountains in our brains
Those of us who let go will be swallowed
Left here to die

Do not look to the sky
It will not rain for you
Do not look to strangers
They won't help you through
Only chance you got
When you hear those war dogs bark
Is to be one up on your brother
Like a Blind man in the dark

Face to face we will meet again
But never eye to eye
Meanwhile, in your mania
Your four wings touch the sky
Fly too high the wax will melt
And you'll fall down to your knees
All I ask from you my friend
Is that you ask nothing from me

Dreams fly by like a thousand railroad trains
Egos steadfast like mountains in our brains
Those of us who let go will be swallowed
Left here to die
Do not look to the sky
It will not rain for you
Do not look to strangers
They won't help you through
Only chance you got
When you hear those war dogs bark
Is to be one up on your brother
Like a Blind man in the dark

Do not look to the sky
It will not rain for you
Do not look to strangers
They won't help you through
Only chance you got
When you hear those war dogs bark
Is to be one up on your brother
Like a Blind man
Blind man in the dark
Blind man in the dark

Hmmm... Never heard that one my man. I'll have to check it out when I get home. The part that intrugues me the most is the mention of Icarus. I don't know why but that tale... It always gets to me. *wink*

I stumped Sailor on Jam rock? Is this a first?

Nice catch. Yeah those greek tales...damn. But it certainly isn't what I liked best about the song.

But, if you are going to check it out-I'll give you another good one to check out while you're at it:

"Banks of the Deep End"

on the banks of the deep end
where your soul is your best friend
searching for a reason
to go astray
wild dreams turn to nightmares
silver clouds turn to golden stairs
and everything that you used to know
is slipping away

here i've got my puzzle-piece
only got it for a short term lease
no time for asking
no going back to get hurt
i take a little from the mixture
try to fit it into the picture
got a place where you're standing
dig your shoes into the dirt

trying hard to get back
runnin' on the stones
put you on my shoulders
we can be the only one
see the world's still spinning 'round
gettin' dizzy when we look

there's a reason to be home
there's a feeling when you smile
but it feels like it might take over
this feeling deep inside
and there's a distance down the line
far away from the station
we can leave it all behind
on a rolling creation

sit away from the window
and lock the door
can't you learn from the last time
and the time before
see the world's still spinning 'round
gettin' dizzy when we look

got to leave town
to see the yellow flowers bloom
sun going down
it's gonna be rising soon

on the banks of the deep end
twisted as a riverbend
searching for a reason to go astray

you couldn't hire twenty-five men
to do what the man could do
just the sound of his walking
could split the whole damn town in two
into the night full of shadows
he still walks when the thunder rolls
this river ain't shallow
reminds us that the bell still tolls

bears in the kitchen
tigers on tv
the singer's pretending
that this song's for me
see the world's still spinning 'round
gettin' dizzy when we look

you took a wrong turn
down by the waterline
i heard they had to drag you off the sand
find a dune and the wind will miss you
hold on to a piece of dry land
got to hold on to a piece of dry land
got to hold on to a piece of dry land

on the bands of the deep end
where i lost my best friend
searching for a reason to go astray

From 'Doctor,Doctor" By The Thompson Twins

You said you would come and dance with me.
*Dance with me across the sea
And we could feel the motion of a thousand dreams.*
Doctor
doctor
can't you see
I'm burning burning;
Oh
doctor
doctor

Is this love I'm feeling ?
Ships at night
Give such delight

We all leave
Before the morning light.
Please don't go

No
please don't go
'cause I don't want to stay here on my own.

**=most favourite.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
from 'My Elusive Drug' By Elton John

I've been loose as a cannon and dumb as a wall
Haven't always been sober in counting my ducks
And if I look back now I've had my share of luck

But the change didn't come over night
I've been searching for you all my life
All the habits that I couldn't handle
I've swept them under the rug
In exchange for the sweetest addiction
You, my elusive drug

UGH! Damn...someone post some alt metal or something nice and hard and edgy and ...ARGH! Just something to throw me down and rip this mood from me-something!!!!! Because...if not.... I'm going to be listening to # like this all freakin day!

"December"

Why drink the water
from my hand?
Contagious as you think I am
Just tilt my sun towards
your domain.
Your cup runneth over again.

Don't scream about
Don't think aloud
Turn your head now baby
Just spit me out
Don't worry about
Don't speak of doubt
Turn your head now baby
Just spit me out

Why follow me to higher ground?
Lost as you swear I am.
Don't throw away your basic needs,
Ambiance and vanity.

December promise you gave unto me
December whispers of treachery
December clouds are now covering me
December songs no longer I sing

Sometimes in our lives, we all have pain, we all have sorrow.
But if we are wise, we know that there's always tomorrow.
Lean on me, when you're not strong and I'll be your friend.
I'll help you carry on, for it won't be long 'til I'm gonna need somebody
to lean on.
Please swallow your pride, if have things you need to borrow.
For no one can fill those needs that you won't let show.
You just call on me brother when you need a hand.
We all need somebody to lean on.
I just might have a problem that you'll understand.
We all need somebody to lean on.
Lean on me when you't not strong, and I'll be your friend.
I'll help you carry on, for it won't be long 'til I'm gonna' need
somebody to lean on.
You just call on me brother if you need a friend.
We all need somebody to lean on.
I just might have a problem that you'll understand.
We all need somebody to lean on.
If there is a load you have to bear that you can't carry.
I'm right up the road, I'll share your load if you just call me.
Call me ( if you need a friend)
Call me
(Repeat Until Fade)
Lean On Me-Temptaions, and Rockapella, and Bill Withers. I like the Rockapella version best though.

Nice sailor
had a little bit of anger irritation of displeasure, not really my thing though-but thanks

I've listened to melancholy love crap today ...some things we cling to and some need to fade away I think I'll go listen to Drowning Pool-"Bodies"...it always seems to "cheer me up" and it will be perfect before marriage counseling tomorrow

As I was goin' over the Cork and Kerry mountains.
I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'.
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier.
I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya.

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny.
I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly.
She swore that she loved me, never would she leave me.
But the devil take that woman, yeah for you know she tricked me easy.

The first two verses of the Metalica version of whiskey in the jar I love this song

Hehe... My bad t2m.... Thought you might find it funny. I can't believe no one has posted any Floyd lyrics yet. Here is a song off their Meddle album. I don't know why but that's my favorite Pink Floyd album. I wish music was still about albums and not songs. like it is today. Oh well. Here it is...


A Pillow Of Winds

A cloud of eider down
Draws around me softening the sound
Sleepy time in my life
With my love by my side
And she's breathing low
And the candle dies.
When night comes down you lock the door
The boot falls to the floor
As darkness falls and waves roll by
The seasons change
The wind is raw.
Now wakes the hour that sleeps the swan
Behold a dream, the dream is gone
Green fields
A cold rain is falling
Near the golden dawn.
And deep beneath the ground
The early morning sounds and I go down
Sleepy time in our life
With my love by my side
And she's breathing low
And I rise like a bird
In the haze and the first rays touch the sky
And the night winds die

*edit*

Oh yeah... T2M... You ever download that "Thin Line" song? It really is a good tune. Should be in everyones collection. *wink*

Ah yes of course Sailor...Meddle- off the top of my head a few favorite quotes:

"if you're alone -I'll come home"

"Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me "

oh and a side note...friends of mine...actually aquaintances...named their son "Seamus" and I was always like, what? Like the dog?


I could post Floyd forever...

"we're just two lost souls swimmin in a fishbowl...year after year"

Oh for God's sake man-don't get me started on Floyd!
