Starting this thread so people can share songs, lyrics conspiracy related that theyve heard or are listening to. Songs that you think might hint at something, clues, or general politically charged songs by any artists you know of. I thought as well as interesting it may be a bit of fun and a chance for members to share like minded music with each other. As a format i propose, post the band, the song name, and the lyrics if your able to find them.

This band are a london band i picked up on the radio a little while back called The Pretty Suspects. They have a song called Man behind the curtain. Couldnt find the lyrics on good so i wrote em down as i hear em.

The Pretty Suspects

Man behind the curtain

"oh let me tell a story wont you sit for a time
let me open up your barricades and dance on your mind
my bitter little fingers caressing your soul
searching for a shard of destiny in that vacant hole
so whats the point in feeling when theres nothing to feel
the world wrapped in cellophane a job for a meal
in the name of democracy and wage slave state hippocracy
is this the end of mystery or is this the end of time

take your lives and take your guns
the world falls down into the sun
round and round the merry go round we go
hand your soul unto the king
cos you just dont know for certain
pay no attention to the man behind the curtain

a thousand years of toil and tears we came to the conclusion
god is dead and plastic lives new retail park solution
tell me why it matters tell me why should i care
when the only thing that haunts our minds
is the babylon and what she wears
so heed your holy books and pay your tithes
ignore the stars ignore the skies
expell the truth and court your lies
and pull the wool right across my eyes"

pulled from www.myspace.com...

even got the all seeing eye up there!


so common guys, share what u got cant wait to hear your suggestions!

(ps i didnt know the best place to post this so feel free to move it to the relavent threat. thanks)

I thought this one may be fitting.


(hed)p.e. - I.F.O.

Somewhere, somehow, somewhen
We'll see it happen again, my friend
A simple visitation gone wrong, like back in '47
Only this time we'll be on the scene like Kent Brockman
Or Sam Donaldson, live in New Mexico
But now you can't fool us, now you can't lie so much
You wanna know why we can't trust you?
You turned a flying disc into a weather ballon
How long did you think you could trick us with lies?
Can't put a cover on the skies
Can't hide the face, can't hide the eyes, ***** please
You can't put a cover on the sky!

You can't put a cover on the sky! (x4)

So realize, I'm not surprised at your deception
Correction, I welcome the challenge to intercept it
The message loud and clear, you think we fear it?
Reverse it, me and mine, we will embrace it, so face it
I got the 411, I got the CNN
I'm online
Me and TV, we kin
My clique is the Mandelbrot Set
My crops lie unbroken
Your hoaxes, a feeble attempt
Circles perfect, bring the revelation
Far too many videotapes to go around erasin'
****, this ain't no J.F.K.
Check the I.F.O. out the box
Fresh like sightings on FOX
Documenting the coming of the chariots
Gods in the making, no more jive turkeys fakin' the real
(Let the mothership land, yo! party on the hill, bow down and kneel!)

You can't put a cover on the sky! (x2)
Can't hide the face, can't hide the eyes
You can't put a cover on the sky!
Can't hide the face, can't hide the eyes
You can't put a cover on the sky!

So take me to your leader, but he don't even know you
We, the ***** of earth, got **** to show you
The ******woods can't stand the site of the Africans
But what are they gonna do when they face off with a gray man?
Prepare to meet your maker in the skies over the pyramids
Check Stonehenge, go ask the Mayans
2012 soon come, I will be waitin' sayin' I told you so
When the skies are ripped open
And the mothership lands on your cynical ***
Maybe then you will believe and concede
That you can't hide the sun, can't hide the moon
Can't keep some secrets so big, yo
The truth must transcend, and when it does, my friend
I will be chillin' by the TV, rockin' with CNN
Yeah, my bong in hand
Surrounded by friends when the world as we know it will end

You can't put a cover on the sky! (x2)
Can't hide the face, can't hide the eyes
You can't put a cover on the sky!
Can't hide the face, can't hide the eyes
You can't put a cover on the sky!
My clique is the Mandelbrot Set
My crops lie unbroken
Your hoaxes, a feeble attempt
***** OF EARTH! PREPARE TO MEET YOUR MAKER!

TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER (x4)
TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER, I KNEW THAT YOU WOULD COME (x3)

I don't listen to any pop bands that carry the messages but I certainly do when it comes to metal and punk bands. I don't know if the band Muse would be considered pop, but they did put out a live album called H.A.A.R.P. earlier this year. The lead singer is known for being a big believer in a lot of conspiracies.

I think there's a conspiracy in all the garbage that is spewed out in the name of commercial music:

Songs about lesbianism, guns, drugs, violence, break ups and general materialistic stuff is abound at the moment...

Not saying anything apart from, frustrated youngsters are like sponges!!

METALLICA... Eye Of The Beholder

Do You See What I See?
Truth Is an Offense
You Silence for Your Confidence
Do You Hear What I Hear?
Doors Are Slamming Shut
Limit Your Imagination, Keep You Where They must
Do You Feel What I Feel?
Bittering Distress
Who Decides What You Express
Do You Take What I Take?
Endurance Is the Word
Moving Back Instead of Forward Seems to Me Absurd

Doesn't Matter What You See
Or into it What You Read
You Can Do it Your Own Way
If It's Done Just How I Say

Independence Limited
Freedom of Choice
Choice Is Made for You My Friend
Freedom of Speech
Speech Is Words That They Will Bend
Freedom with Their Exception

Do You Fear What I Fear?
Living Properly
Truths to You Are Lies to Me
Do You Choose What I Choose?
More Alternatives
Energy Derives from Both the plus and Negative
Do You Need What I Need?
Boundaries Overthrown
Look Inside to Each His Own
Do You Trust What I Trust?
Me, Myself and I
Penetrate the Smoke Screen I See Through the Selfish Lie

Do You Know What I Know?
Your Money And Your Wealth
Your Silence Just to Hear Your Self
Do You Want What I Want?
Desire Not a Thing
I Hunger after Independence Lengthen Freedom's Ring

Independence Limited
Freedom of Choice
Choice Is Made for You My Friend
Freedom of Speech
Speech Is Words That They Will Bend
Freedom no longer frees you


(I took out the repeating chorus)

[edit on 16-10-2008 by TeeJay] Cuz I got all excited & put in the wrong song.

Laibach - WAT album
B Mashina

Only one day is left
only one day
we are leaving the others
we're going away
Today we all steal
animals we are
possession is lost
Our souls are from the wild
and wings to reach the sky
let the sun fall into the ocean,
let the earth erupt in flame
It is enough to have the strength
and knowledge
to raise our dream machines
into the sky
Let them sleep who do not know
the final day is here
the very last
and we leave at dawn
Millions of machines on nitroglycerin
Thunder in us
There is no force no money and no power
To stop us now and change our fate
Before we rise
Now every problem is destroyed
We raise our hands and bodies to the peak
Into the Universe - towards the stars we go
Sending machines up to the sky

[Chorus]
Machines we are sending to the skies
Above us all
And leave behind those who don't know
Of the final day
We leave in sleep those who don't know
(and) we leave at dawn
We are driven by the B-machine
(Wild B-machine - that never stops)

I'll throw in another, the one my signature quote came from.

KMFDM - Dogma

All we want is a headrush
All we want is to get out of our skin for a while
We have nothing to lose because we don't have anything
Anything we want anyway...
We used to hate people
Now we just make fun of them
It's more effective that way
We don't live
We just scratch on day to day
With nothing but matchbooks and sarcasm in our pockets
And all we are waiting for is for something worth waiting for
Let's admit America gets the celebrities we deserve
Let's stop saying "Don't quote me" because if no one quotes you
You probably haven't said a thing worth saying

We need something to kill the pain of all that nothing inside
We all just want to die a little bit
We fear that pop-culture is the only culture we're ever going to have
We want to stop reading magazines
Stop watching T.V.
Stop caring about Hollywood
But we're addicted to the things we hate
We don't run Washington and no one really does
Ask not what you can do for your country
Ask what your country did to you

The only reason you're still alive is because someone
Has decided to let you live
We owe so much money we're not broke we're broken
We're so poor we can't even pay attention
So what do you want?
You want to be famous and rich and happy
But you're terrified you have nothing to offer this world
Nothing to say and no way to say it
But you can say it in three languages
You are more than the sum of what you consume
Desire is not an occupation
You are alternately thrilled and desperate
Skyhigh and ****ed
Let's stop praying for someone to save us and start saving ourselves
Let's stop this and start over
Let's go out - let's keep going

This is your life - this is your ****ing life
We need something to kill the pain of all that nothing inside
Quit whining you haven't done anything wrong because frankly
You haven't done much of anything
Someone's writing down your mistakes
Someone's documenting your downfall

And another one from same lp
Wat

WE ARE NO ORDINARY TYPE OF GROUP
WE ARE NO HUMBLE POP MUSICIANS
WE DON''T SEDUCE WITH MELODIES
AND WE'RE NOT HERE TO PLEASE YOU
WE HAVE NO ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
YET WE CAN QUESTION YOUR DEMANDS
WE DON'T INTEND TO SAVE YOUR SOULS
SUSPENSE IS OUR DEVICE
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
FROM MOSES TO MUHAMMAD,
FROM KAPITAL TO NATO
ACROPOLIS TO OPUS DEI,
FROM MARX AND BACK TO PLATO
FROM THE GOLDEN AGE TO THE AGE OF STEEL,
FROM THE BEGINING TO THE END
FROM ZERO TO INFINITY
THE FIRST TO THE SEVENTH CONTINENT
FROM NO SOLUTION TO REVOLUTION,
THE RED STAR TO STAR WARS
THE TURNING POINT TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN,
NEW ORDER TO A BRAVE NEW WORLD
MECHANICAL TO DIGITAL
FROM POLTERGEIST TO ZEITGEIST
FROM GOD'S WILL TO EVIL
AND FROM SUPERSTARS TO THE ANTI-CHRIST
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE THE THIEVES OF THE LOST HORIZONS
WE ARE THE MIRROR OF THE DEADLY CURSE
WE SHALL GIVE YOU NOTHING
AND IN RETURN WE'LL TAKE EVEN LESS

BUT WHEN OUR BEAT STOPS
AND THE LIGHTS GO OUT
AND WHEN WE LEAVE THIS PLACE
YOU WILL BE LEFT HERE ALL ALONE
WITH A STATIC SCREAM LOCKED ON YOUR FACE
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME
WE ARE TIME

Heres one for the doomsdayers. I LUV this song btw.

METALLICA...Blackened

Blackened Is the End
Winter it Will Send
Throwing All You See
Into Obscurity
Death of Mother Earth
Never a Rebirth
Evolution's End
Never Will it Mend
Never

Fire
To Begin Whipping Dance of the Dead
Blackened Is the End
To Begin Whipping Dance of the Dead
Color Our World Blackened

Blistering of Earth
Terminate its Worth
Deadly Nicotine
Kills What Might Have Been
Callous Frigid Chill
Nothing Left to Kill
Never Seen Before
Breathing Nevermore
Never

Blackened

Opposition...Contradiction...Premonition...Compromise
Agitation...Violation...Mutilation...Planet Dies
Darkest Color
Blistered Earth
True Death of Life
Termination....Expiration...Cancellation...Human Race
Expectation...Liberation...Population...Lay to Waste
See Our Mother
Put to Death
See Our Mother Die
Smoldering Decay
Take Her Breath Away
Millions of Our Years
In Minutes Disappears
Darkening in Vain
Decadence Remains
All Is Said and Done
Never Is the Sun
Never

Fire
Is the Outcome of Hypocrisy
Darkest Potency
In the Exit of Humanity
Color Our World Blackened
Blackened

Muse: Exo-politics


Open the skies over me,
I am waiting patiently,
I'll wait for a sign.

As conspiracies unwind,
Will you slam shut,
Or free your mind,
or stay hypnotised.

When the Zetas fill the skies,
Will our leaders tell us why,
Fully loaded satellites,
will conquer nothing but our minds.

And I've waited patiently,
And I wait for the sign.

Carried through the centuries,
Secrets locked up,
And loaded on my back,
and it weighs me down.

When the Zetas fill the skies,
It's just our leaders in disguise,
Fully loaded satellites,
will conquer nothing but our minds.


And I am waiting patiently,
And I'll wait for the sign. (Yeah).
And I am waiting patiently,
I'll wait for the sign

Cool thread - thanks. This is a little different and much more subtle, but imo just as haunting as any other conspiracy tune out there. From the obviously political Pink Floyd:

Pink Floyd
The Final Cut
Two Suns In The Sunset

in my rear view mirror the sun is going down
sinking behind bridges in the road
and i think of all the good things
that we have left undone
and i suffer premonitions

confirm suspicions
of the holocaust to come

the wire that holds the cork
that keeps the anger in
gives way
and suddenly it's day again
the sun is in the east
even though the day is done
two suns in the sunset
[ Pink Floyd Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
hmmmmmmmmm
could be the human race is run

like the moment when your brakes lock
and you slide toward the big truck
and stretch the frozen moments with your fear
and you'll never hear their voices
and you'll never see their faces
you have no recourse to the law anymore

and as the windshield melts
my tears evaporate
leaving only charcoal to defend
finally i understand
the feelings of the few
ashes and diamonds
foe and friend
we were all equal in the end

Thought I'd throw out another - amazing video included, to get this rolling again. To understand PLEASE WATCH!!!

www.youtube.com...

Ween: Transdermal Celibration

Transdermal celebration
Caused a slight mutation
In the rift
It's awful domination
Left the people running for the hills
But the mutants that I see
Shine their beauty unto me
I wish you could see them

Tectonic tribulation
Formed a crust of green beyond the reef
Waves fell in formation
Cause the plants to bend with spi-ked leaves
I'm growing with the land
Time has taken my hands and let me touch them

Hey, hey,
A billion miles to Mark A
Lay on the lawn, he's already home
When the morning ray hits his face

Transdermal celebration
Jets flew in formation
I could see them
Dropping the crustaceans
Leaving trails of flames in their wake
But where is the mutation
Who once told me it was safe, I can't find him

The video is amazing!! Watch it!
