And this one too,

Kowalski by Primal Scream..

Real fast paced and dramatic!

This radio station was named Kowalski,
In honour of the last American hero to whom
Speed means freedom of the soul.
The question is not when he's gonna stop,
But who is gonna stop him...

There goes the Challenger
Being chased by the blue blue meanies on wheels
The vicious traffic squad cars
Are after our lone driver
The last American hero
The electric centaur, the demi god
The super driver of the golden west
Two nasty Nazi cars are close behind
The beautiful lone driver
The police number are getting closer, closer
Closer to our soul hero, in his soul mobile
Yeah baby, they're about to strike
They're gonna get him, smash him
Rape the last beautiful free soul on this planet

Vanishing Point (4x)

Soul on ice (7x)

Hello kowalski
Hello Kowalski
Hello Kowalski

no Zazz - don't really know the album - can't think of the song

fell in love with this one originally - from Dead Can Dance - but I love Sineads version(s) best

Rising Against - it's a real shame you started this thread - I won't be able to stop



Rain King
Counting Crows

When I think of heaven (Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
and all other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to feed me
I've been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen I belong anywhere but in between
She's been crying I've been thinking And I am the Rain King

Mama, why am I so alone?
I can't go outside
I'm scared I might not make it home
I'm alive but I'm sinking in
If there's anyone at home at your place
Why don't you invite me in
Don't try to bleed me
I've been there before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying
I've been sinking
And I am the Rain King

Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Henderson is waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again...

When I think of heaven (Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of dying Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Render up my body into the burning heart of God in the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to bleed me
I've been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been dying
I been drinking and I am the Rain King.

You were posting as a member in a bts thread
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up, and turned you around
Turned you into someone new
Now two years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don't forget it's me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too...

There are a couple in here allready that I love


For me....



after a storm i want to be brave
and keep you warm
and not fade away
as we float from the shore
into the Light
into the Unknown
like thousands of lanterns
glowing with Grace
in glorious Silence
descending through space
to a friend
a sister in need

who is not alone

and they are surrounding her
and they will enfold her outstretched hand

in our Love

into the Light
it's hard to believe
it's always been ours to give
and to receive

and i want to be shameless like the sun

moving into you entering Light



Wel - come Ensh'allah Ensh'allah Enter One Amazing Grace is pouring
down fear not this Light we are of this Light Divine so come
we move as ONE amazing Grace is pouring down fear not this Light
we are of this Light Divine Welcome Enter One


after a storm i wanna let go
of the things that i've done
without any worry
i wanna come home
into the Light
into the Unknown

i want to be shameless like the sun

moving into you enter Light


Wel - come Ensh'allah Ensh'allah Enter One Amazing Grace is pouring
down fear not this Light we are of this Light Divine so come
we move as ONE amazing Grace is pouring down fear not this Light
we are of this Light Divine Welcome Enter One

-------------------------------------------------

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Help me to carry the fire
It will light our way forever

Cry
Cry out your eyes forever
It won't go away.
I
I'm just a dumb observer
It's so stupid what I say

Like everyone else will do
I'm gonna lie to you
Tell you that life is cruel
But someday you're gonna wake up
With sleep instead of teardrops in your eyes

And So
Nobody lives forever
The crassest of cliches
Like time
Time is the greatest healer
But it's a murderer today

Like everyone else will do
I'm gonna lie to you
Tell you that life is cruel
But someday you're gonna wake up
With sleep instead of teardrops in your eyes

So cry
Cry out those tears and let them
Succumb to gravity
And try
Try as I might I'll never
Fill that vacancy

Like everyone else will do
I'm gonna lie to you
Tell you that life is cruel
But someday you're gonna wake up
With sleep instead of teardrops in your eyes


Sleep Instead of Teardrops
-Justin Currie
(late of Del Amitri)



That Frozen Head State Park
Has always been a mystery
It makes you wonder whose head they used
And just how cold it had to be

Now some folks tend to drive right past it
That's why I'm askin' y'all
If there's one chance in a hundred
That poor old frozen head may thaw

That Frozen Head State Park
Has always been a mystery
It's just across the line
From Good old Caroline
Just this side of good old Tennessee.

Well I wonder what they did with the body
Has it got a state park of its own?
Maybe they sent it up to Canada
On one of those good old US state park loans

That Frozen Head State Park
Has always been a mystery
It's just across the line
From Good old Caroline
Just this side of good old Tennessee.

Frozen Head State Park
-Dan Baird
(late of the Georgia Satellites)



Sit on my face
And tell me that you love me
I'll sit on your face and say that I love you too

I love to hear you oralize
When I'm between your thighs
You blow me away

Sit On My Face
-Monty Python

People are strange, when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked, when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven, when you're down

--------------------------------------------------------

When you walk
Through a storm
Hold your head, up high
And don't be afraid, of the dark
'Coz at the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song
Of the lark

Walk on, through the wind
Walk on, through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed
And blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope, in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

--------------------------------------------------

So here I am
doing everything I can
holding on to what I am
pretending I'm a superman
I'm trying to keep
the ground on my feet
it seems the world's
falling down around me
the nights are all long
I'm singing this song
to try and make the answers
more than maybe

and I'm so confused
about what to do
sometimes I want
to throw it all away

-----------------------------------------------

While im here i may as well post ahother one.....

Working Class Hero - Joh Lennon (idol)

As soon as your born they make you feel small,
By giving you no time instead of it all,
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school,
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool,
Till you're so fu**ing crazy you can't follow their rules,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years,
Then they expect you to pick a career,
When you can't really function you're so full of fear,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV,
And you think you're so clever and classless and free,
But you're still fu**ing peasents as far as I can see,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
There's room at the top they are telling you still,
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
If you want to be like the folks on the hill,
A working class hero is something to be.
A working class hero is something to be.
If you want to be a hero well just follow me,
If you want to be a hero well just follow me.

I caught you knockin'
at my cellar door
I love you, baby,
can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle
take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song
because I love the man
I know that some
of you don't understand
Milk-blood
to keep from running out.

I've seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's
like a settin' sun.

Neil Young - Needle And The Damage Done

Do you keep the reciepts
For the friends that you buy?

Noel Gallagher - Where Did It All Go Wrong - Oasis
