I vote this song to be the most inspirational song to me. Linkin Park really knew how to do a song that teaches a good moral lesson.



That is another song I enjoy and find inspirational meaning in.

I got turned on to Micheal Franti a few years back and it was the first album in a long time that I enjoyed every song from beginning to end. It was recorded in Kingstown Jamaica where Marley recorded also. It definately has a few messages and I would highly recommend the album, Yellfire.

Time To Go Home

Light Up Ya Lighter

Everybody On Da Move


I am going to exchange one angry one for one beautiful one. This song and performance really cuts thru to the heart and I would certainly qualify it as inspirational, and poetry in motion.



Hope ya enjoy
Peace,
spec

The first one doesn't really belong, its the same old "monster inside me" "I'm different" "battle against myself" teenage stuff that everyone is singing.

Everything sounds the same these days, I just kind of stopped listening to modern vocals.
None of it has meaning anymore, just "sing what appeals to them and sell millions" stuff.

Love the NOFX ones, one of my favorite bands (can't believe they are on here with the T&C!!). Great picks. I have a few I would like to post that helped me... (Some NOFX, Queen, Slipknot and others) But sadly my pc is... well, ancient (P3 486 mhz 256 ram) and I crash if I try to do many things... If someone could help me out and please post them u2u me. Otherwise, great thread.

John Frusciante is my favorite artist. Everything he did with the Red Hot Chili Peppers was amazing and his solo work is out of this world. When he plays it is like the whole universe runs through him. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Tool.. I saw someone mention it but not the song I was thinking of : Aenema. It sounds pessimistic and mysanthropic, but Its actually about renewal.. a change. BOY, CAN I IDENTIFY!


LANGUAGE WARNING!~

Lyrics to Aenima :

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bull# three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless #ing hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any #ing time. Any #ing day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car.

It's a
Bull# three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless #ing hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any #ing time. Any #ing day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip#s.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this

Silly #, stupid #...

One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

Learn to swim.

Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be.

Learn to swim.

# L Ron Hubbard and
# all his clones.
# all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes.

Learn to swim.

# retro anything.
# your tattoos.
# all you junkies and
# your short memory.

Learn to swim.

# smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas.
# these dysfunctional,
Insecure actresses.

Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna watch it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.

I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it all come down.
suck it down.
flush it down.

If you really listen to this song and understand its meaning it is truly a fantastic song.

Lyrics: www.darklyrics.com...

Demons & Wizards, a collaborative band combining talents from Blind Guardian and Iced Earth; and just another of the songwriters that I seem to be on the same wavelength with.

Space, their true asylum
The ancient ones they travel on
The architects of our way
In the dark we stay!

The knowledge that you seek is deep inside you
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
That things are not what they may seem

Can't you wake up and see?
For our own good they tried to deceive
You must learn to believe
That mankind's blind and trying to see
The architects have left us many signs
But the answers lie in death

Fate
Predestination
Manifest
Manipulate
The architects of our way
In the dark we stay!
The knowledge that you seek is deep inside you
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
That things are not what they may seem

Can't you wake up and see?
For our own good they tried to deceive
You must learn to believe
That mankind's blind and trying to see
The architects have left us many signs
But the answer lie in death

If you're asking yourself
Who you really are
And you question the force-fed religions of man
And you know
You know it just can't be
You know it just can't be
So cleanse your mind
So cleanse your mind
Fear in God's pillar and
It has made you blind

Can't you wake up and see?
For our own good they tried to deceive
You must learn to believe
That mankind's blind and trying to see
The architects have left us many signs
But the answers lie in death

If you're asking yourself
Who you really are
And you question the force-fed religions of man
And you know
You know it just can't be
You know it just can't be
So cleanse your mind
So cleanse your mind
Someone must hold the key
Someone must hold the key
The ones who sowed the seed
The ones who sowed the seed
Faith is the final key
The final key
What lies beyond the stars
Lies beyond the stars
Can't you wake up and see?
Wake up and see!
Oh you must learn to believe
Our makers, our framers, our fathers, our gods
The architects roam on their quest for a spirit unknown
If you're asking yourself who you really are
And you question the force-fed religions of man
And you know...
Our makers, our framers, our fathers, our gods
The architects roam on their quest for a spirit unknown

Blaze-The 10th Dimension



Those self appointed secret rulers of this world,
They are hypocrites liars and thieves.
And with the arrogance that they confuse with wisdom
They are controlling everything and you and me.
They rule with fear and hide the path to freedom,
Manipulating with their conspiracys.
Inventing gods to make us fear the day of judgement
So dreading death we beg for life while on our knees.

(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light
For all my questions they said they had the answers
But then they said this is all my life could be
I ask again about the reasons for existence
But still the answers cannot satisfy my need
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light
Oh-oh-oh, freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension
Oh-oh-oh, freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension

Their holy trinity
Traps you in their beliefs
Has sinchronicty
Always been leading me?
Their holy trinity
Traps you in their beliefs
Has sinchronicty
Always been leading me?
(Did you think we would allow you to share the discovery?)
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light
Oh-oh-oh, your freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension
Oh-oh-oh, your freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension
