Fountain by Sara Lov [25 Jan 2011|05:36pm]

citycrystal
fountain
fountain
we are the same
you with the water
me with the pain
turning it over
again and again

don't you wish you could throw their pennies back at them
don't you wish you could throw their pennies back at them
back at them
at them

fountain
fountain
we are the same
fountain
fountain
we are the same
all that anyone ever asks from you
are the things you reflect back to them

don't you wish you could throw their pennies back at them
don't you wish you could throw their pennies back at them
back at them
at them

fountain
fountain
we are the same
fountain
fountain
we are the same
it is so beautiful how you remain

I'm going home
Like a tiger in the rain
My blood is drippin'
But I'm bringing you with deadly veign
Salty ocean but my tears will bring me home again
I'm coming at you
kill the love of a brother or friend

So don't worry
the weather's making war on machines
another night
burning out like a fire

I'm gonna catch you by the - teacher
There was an empty world
Awaiting for the love that you give

So don't worry
the weather's making war on machines
another night
burning out like a fire

So don't you worry darlin
About the things you got
cuz what you're not
just tries to take away

I'm going home
Like a tiger in the rain
My body's freezin
But it's bound to make you whole again
River's winding around the mountains
Here before the bend
A rushing water fall will never rest -
So don't worry
the weather's making war on machines
another night
burning out like a fire

So don't you worry darlin
About the things you got
cuz what you're not
just tries to take away

I'm gonna catch you be the tail
and teach you how to live
There wasn't an answer
But I'm ready for the love that you give

I'm gonna catch you be the tail
and teach you how to live
There wasn't an answer
But I'm ready for the love that you give
Give

Et lingua eius loquetur iudicium

Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem
Quoniam cum probatus fuerit accipiet coronam vitae

I try to picture the girl
Through a looking glass
And see her as a carbon atom
See her eyes and stare back at them
See that girl
As her own new world
Though a home is on the surface,
She is still a universe


Glory God,
oh God is peeking through the blinds
Are we all here standing naked
Taking guesses at the actual date and time
Oh my,
Justifying reasons why
Is an absolutely insane resolution to live by

Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously
Takin' it easy
Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously

And try to picture the man
To always have an open hand
And see him as a giving tree
See him as matter
Matter fact he's not a beast
No not the devil either
Always a good deed doer
And it's laughter
That we're making after all


The call of the wild is still an ordination why
And the order of the primates
All our politics are too late
Oh my, the congregation in my mind
Is this assembly singing of gratitude
Practicing their lovin for you

Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously
Takin' it easy
Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously

And singing out
And just take it easy
And celebrate the malleable reality
You see nothing is ever as it seems
Yeah this life is but a dream

Unforgettable,
That's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love
That clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me

Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling,
It's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more,
That's how you'll stay
That's why, darling,
It's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling
My God what have we done to You?

We always try to share
The tenderest of care
Now look what we have put You through...

Things get damaged
Things get broken
I thought we'd manage
But words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

Angels with silver wings
Shouldn't know suffering
I wish I could take the pain for You

If God has a master plan
That only He understands
I hope it's Your eyes
He's seeing through


Things get damaged
Things get broken
I thought we'd manage
But words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

I pray You learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in Your heart for two

Things get damaged
Things get broken
I thought we'd manage
But words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

I met Ferdinand de Saussure
On a night like this
On love he said
"I'm not so sure
I even know what it is
No understanding
No closure
It is a nemesis
You can't use a bulldozer
To study orchids"


He said...
So we don't know anything
You don't know anything
I don't know anything
about love
But we are nothing
You are nothing
I am nothing
Without love


I'm just a great composer
And not a violent man

But I lost my composure
And I shot Ferdinand
Crying "it's well and kosher
to say you don't understand
but this is for Holland-Dozier-Holland"

His last words were
We don't know anything
you don't know anything
I don't know anything
About love
but we are nothing
You are nothing
I am nothing
Without love

His fading words were
We don't know anything
you don't know anything
I don't know anything
About love
but we are nothing
You are nothing
I am nothing
Without love

I am green today
I chirp with joy like a cricket song.
I am gray today
Gloomy and down like a morning fog.
I am orange today
Loud and messy like finger paint on the wall.

I am red today
Hopping mad like a playground ball.
I am black today
Strong and tall a great big bear.
I am purple today
Bright and happy like a butterfly in the air.

I'm a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I'm a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I'm a rainbow today
All the colors of the world are in me.

I am yellow today
I shine my light out like the sun.
I am white today
Soft and quite like new snow.

I am blue today
Calm as glass and cool like the sea.

I'm a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I'm a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I'm a rainbow today
All the colors of the world are in me.
All the colors of the world are in me.

It was a creed written into the founding documents
That declared the destiny of a nation.
Yes we can.
It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists
As they blazed a trail toward freedom.
Yes we can. Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores
and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.
Yes we can. Yes we can.
It was the call of workers who organized;
women who reached for the ballots;
a President who chose the moon as our new frontier;
and a King who took us to the mountain-top
And pointed the way to the Promised Land.
Yes we can to justice and equality.
(yes we can, yes we can, yes we can, yes we can…)
Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes we can heal this nation.
Yes we can repair this world.
Yes we can. Si Se Puede
(yes we can,
yes we can,
yes we can,
yes we can…)


We know the battle ahead will be long,
but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way,
nothing can stand in the way
Of the power of millions of voices calling for change.
We want change!

(We want change! We want change! We want change…)

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics
Who will only grow louder and more dissonant.
We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check.
We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America,
There has never been anything false about hope.
We want change!
(We want change!
I want change!
We want change!
I want change…)

The hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon
Are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
we will remember that there is something happening in America;
that we are not as divided as our politics suggests;
that we are one people;
we are one nation;
and together, we will begin the next great chapter in America’s story
With three words that will ring from coast to coast;
from sea to shining sea -
Yes. We. Can.

(yes we can, yes we can,
yes we can, yes we can,
yes we can, yes we can,
yes we can, yes we can…)

You crawl in bed its three am,
you smell of wine and cigarettes
A butterfly under the glass,
You are beautiful but you're not going anywhere
We do the same thing every night,
I swear Ive heard this song before
A swimmer who has seen a shark,
I should really be more wary of the water

You came, you saw, you conquered
Everyone,
I'm left here guessing
Oh, what went wrong
Yeah I'm down but not out
And far from done

Hey all,
Beware! criminal

A prism with an intellect
You throw your light selectively
You stole my glow a seasoned thief
The blacks of my eyes
Are turning into opals
Today, I walk,
Theres nothing here left for me
but empty promises and the thought
of, all the things
I'm never getting back


You came,
You saw,
You conquered
Everyone,
I'm left here bleeding
Oh,
What went wrong
Yeah I'm down,
But not out
And far from done
Hey all, Beware!
(Ooh)
Beware! criminal...
criminal... criminal

Did you think,
did you think I wouldn’t notice
Did you think,
did you think,
did you really think I wouldn’t care
Did you think,
did you think I wouldn't notice
Did you think,
did you think,
did you really think

Yeah,
You came, you saw, you conquered
And I'm left here bleeding
Oh, what went wrong
Yeah
I'm down,
But not out
And far from done
Help,
Beware! Criminal!

Isnt it strange
That a gift could be an enemy?
Isnt it weird that
A privilege could feel like a chore?
Maybe it's me,
But this life isn't going anywhere
Maybe if we looked hard enough
We could find a back door
Find yourself a back door

I see you in line dragging your feet
You have my sympathy
The day you were born
You were born free
That is your privilege


Isnt it strange that
The man standing in front of me
Doesnt't have a clue why he's waiting or
What he's waiting for?
Maybe it's me but Im sick of wasting energy
Maybe if I look in my heart,
I can find a back a door
Find yourself a back door

I see you in line dragging your feet
You have my sympathy
The day you were born you were born free
That is your
That is your privilege

Find yourself a back door
I see you in line dragging your feet
You have my sympathy
The day you were born
You were born free
That is your privilege
I see you in line dragging your feet
You have my sympathy
The day you were born
You were born free
That is your
That is your privilege

I know why I like you
it's cause of your clothing and your haircut
and 'cause you're racist.
I have a match; your face,

My asking you questions you can't answer.
You want to box me?

Our world works in a weird way
I've heard them say a man with a beard may
frighten children or dogs
But a moustache scares me more.

I know why you bite me
it's cause of your instincts and your canines
and 'cause I kicked you.
I have a bone to pick;
Please go on the paper
And fetch me my slippers
And stop meowing.

Man's best friend wags his tail
and
Bares his teeth to the man with the mail
And
Though he's frightened of thunder he never goes to war.

Tell me what's the circumstance of circumcision?
And what goes in my daughter's pants is whose decision?
I've seen the facts of inter-race relations,
of see-through slacks, of cyber-masturbation;
if a hundred monkeys each could get their own show,
Perhaps one day a chimp might say
"'And you have faith; you just need to use it' sayeth the Lord"


I know why I like you
it's cause of your sandals and your supper
And 'cause you're Jesus
I have a match; your Dad,
My dad has
Your picture right next to your mother's
And one of Charo

They hold hands up in heaven.
And they say that their son's name is Kevin
But I read in a book somewhere
That his name is Jack

And you may find yourself
Living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself
In another part of the world
And you may find yourself
Behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself
In a beautiful house,
With a beautiful Wife
And you may ask yourself-
Well...how did I get here?

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!


Letting the days go by
let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...

Water dissolving...
And water removing
There is water
At the bottom of the ocean
Carry the water
At the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
In the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground.

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? ...am I wrong?
And you may tell yourself
My god!...what have I done?


Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
In the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground.

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...

I forget when words were only words
She knows the party makes me nervous
In this stage we can't get hurt
Don't try to understand me

We're too cool to be alone
But, not too crazy to get busted

I found out one life
Just ain't enough
I need another soul to feed on
I'm the flame I can't get burnt
I'm wholly understated


I found silence in this space
An on and off again attraction
I need such amazing grace
Heaven sweep me away

Love,
don't change, don't come around here
Don't wear my heart on your sleeve
Like a high school letter
Don't strain,
'Cause nothing ever come from it
And the people we've become, well
They've never been the people who we are

I strap on one horse and pray for luck
I dug another hole to bleed

I know exactly how this works
I need a new feel dirty

I don't need you crowding up my space
I just want to get inside you
You can't believe the heart you save
Giving something away

Love,
don't change, don't come around here
Don't wear my heart on your sleeve
Like a high school letter
Don't strain,
'Cause nothing ever come from it
And the people we've become, well
They've never been the people who we are

I dreamed that the world was crumbling down
We sat on my back porch and watched it
I dreamed that the buildings all fell down
We sat on my back porch and watched it
I dreamed that the world was crumbling down
We sat on my back porch and watched it
In my head I heard the sound
Like fifteen strangers dancing

But oh how I want you to know me
Oh how I want you to know me
Oh how I wish I was somebody else,
Baby
Oh how I wish you could own me

Love,
don't change, don't come around here
Don't wear my heart on your sleeve
Like a high school letter
Don't strain,
'Cause nothing ever come from it
And the people we've become, well
They've never been the people who we are

Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry,

Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Your heart's been aching but you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it

And if you ask me how I'm feeling

She burns

Today's on fire
The sky is bleeding above me,
And I am blistered

I walk these lines of blasphemy,
Every day
And still:

Like a bad star,
I'm falling faster down to her
She's the only one who knows,
What it is to burn

I feel diseased
Is there no sympathy from the sun?
The sky's still fire
But I am safe in here,
From the world outside

So tell me
What's the price to pay for glory?

Like a bad star,
I'm falling faster down to her
She's the only one who knows,
What it is to burn

Today is fire,
And she burns
Today is fire,
And she burns
She burns
She burns
She burns
She burns
She burns
She burns

Like a bad star,
I'm falling faster down to her
She's the only one who knows,

Here he comes
Her comes Speed Racer
He's a demon on wheels
He's a demon and he's gonna be chasin' after someone.


He's gainin' on you so you better look alive.
He's busy revvin' up a powerful Mach 5.

And when the odds are against him
And there's dangerous work to do
You bet your life Speed Racer
Will see it through.

Go Speed Racer!
Go Speed Racer!
Go Speed Racer!,
Go!

He's off and flyin' as he guns the car around the track
He's jammin' down the pedal like he's never comin' back
Adventure's waitin' just ahead!


Go Speed Racer!

Go Speed Racer, Go!

Lets go ya'll

These people are running off at the mouth
Tryin to convince me that I'm running on empty
Tryin to convince themselves that the record with Jay was a fluke
That the record that I'm makin is a mistake
and I cant take this
Lemme tell you where I'm at with this
You bastards are gonna have to take back that shit
I'm not plastic and fake
When I make tracks I take facts and lay them out for the masses
You assholes are gonna see soon that I'm not playin
Start askin me the names that I'm not sayin
But I'm tryin to be bigger than the bickerin
bigger than the petty name callin
under the breath talkin
rumors and labels and categorization
I'm like a struggling doctor, No patients
But you can say what you want about me
keep talkin while I'm walkin away


You can say what you have to say
cuz my mind's made up anyway
I'm taking the high road going above you
this is the last time that I'm gonna trust you
You can say what you have to say
cuz my mind's made up anyway

all that bullshit you talk might work a lot
but it's not gonna work today




You people are running off at the mouth
Tryin to make me take myself off safety
Tryin to make my friends turn their backs on the team we built
buildin up some mistaken information
and I cant take this
lemme spell it out plain for you
angry groups complain about the things we do
im not changing direction, I'm stepping my game up
Maintainin my name, the same way I came up
You're gonna see that I'm not playin
start asking the names that I'm not sayin
but im tryin not to mention the names of people who wanna sight and attention
You like the hype but pretendin you're part of the picture wont pass
You're like a high school dropout, no class
You can say what you want about me
keep talkin while i'm walkin away bitch

You can say what you have to say
cuz my mind's made up anyway
I'm taking the high road going above you
this is the last time that I'm gonna trust you
You can say what you have to say
cuz my mind's made up anyway
all that bullshit you talk might work a lot
but it's not gonna work today


Why does it always have to be
Somebody's always watching me
All I really need is some room to breathe
Is anybody out there listening?
Cuz I cant stand to keep this in
All I really want, I'll say it again


You can say what you have to say

Oh oh oh oh oh

There will be no rules tonight
If there were we'd break 'em
Nothing's gonna stop us now
Let's get down to it
Nervous hands and anxious smiles
I can feel you breathing
This is right where we belong
Turn up the music


Oh oh oh oh oh

This is the dance for all the lovers
Takin' a chance for one another
Finally it's our time now
These are the times that we'll remember
Breaking the city's heart together
Finally it's our time now
It's our time now'


This is more than just romance
It's an endless summer
I can feel the butterflies,
Leading me through it
Take my heart, I'll take your hand
As we're falling under
This is an addiction girl
Let's give in to it

Oh oh oh oh oh

This is the dance for all the lovers
Takin' a chance for one another
Finally it's our time now
These are the times that we'll remember
Breaking the city's heart together
Finally it's our time now
It's our time now

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Now
It's a dance
Get up
Come on brothers
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

This is the dance for all the lovers
Takin' a chance for one another
Finally it's our time now
These are the times that we'll remember
Breaking the city's heart together
Finally it's our time now
It's our time now
(It's our time now)
It's our time now
(It's our time now)
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Finally it's our time now

I am the eagle,
I live in high country
In rocky cathedrals
That reach to the sky

I am the hawk
And theres blood on my feathers
But time is still turning
They soon will be dry
And all of those who see me,
All who believe in me
Share in the freedom
I feel when I fly


Come dance with the west wind
And touch on the mountain tops
Sail o'er the canyons
And up to the stars
And reach for the heavens
And hope for the future
And all that we can be
And not what we are

There was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived,
Their very existence a mystery to the rest of the world,

Obscured as it was by great clouds.Collapse )

Everybody knows
That as we all get older
The will is first to go
And so upon my shoulder
The bluebird shall not
Sing again.

Everybody knows that
As our hair gets greyer
We strike a bended pose
And say a little prayer
To never feel this way again....

Our fingers are missing
They litter the ground
Grass will never grow near this town again

The frames on the walls
Are crooked and empty
These shoulders bend low towards the dirt

I made a deal
To get us out of this place
But I am falling apart
With each step I take
And as the pieces fall
I count them all.

 Strange things are happening everyday
I hear the music up above my head
Though the side of my heart has left me again
I hear music up above

Secrets are written in the sky
Looks like ive lost the love ive never found
Though the sound of hope has left me again
I hear music up above

Standing in my broken heart all night long
Darkness heald me like a freind when love was lost
Looking for the land thats hidden in the cross
The finders love
I know I loved you too much
Ill go alone to get through

I hear rosetta singing in the night
Echos of lighting shine like stars after there gone
And tonight shes my giude as a girl on the moon
With the music up above

Send it up on fire
Death before dawn

I put all your books in an order
I make up a colorful border

Mariana's Trench-Say Anything.

never took you for a trick but sometimes I don't know what you want
I can take it if you need to take this out on someone

That little bitch with her head held so high
talking shit when I cut myself so I could feel something I know is not a lie

That one stings a little
I'm always in the middle
I don't expect but try me
And you will always find me here
This is where I scream from


You can take it all away and I'll miss
There's a little bit of you in all this
And you can say you only think you know, yeah
Please, there's a better bit of me to see yet
Cause you haven't seen any of my best
You know I hate myself without you now

Hurts the same when nobody knows
I guess that's just how it goes
And I won't say anything at all

I was talking on a dollar sign
anxious, scared of what you need
Everybody wants a piece of you
Everyone takes a piece of me

That one stings a little
I'm always in the middle
I don't expect but try me
And you will always find me here
This is where I scream from

You can take it all away and I'll miss
There's a little bit of you in all this
And you can say you only think you know, yeah
Please, there's a better bit of me to see yet
Cause you haven't seen any of my best
You know I hate myself without you now

Hurts the same when nobody knows
I guess that's just how it goes
And I won't say anything at all

This is the hook
Take it like you took
I'm shaking like I shook before
Never ever getting better off
and I can only watch
This is where I stopped before
Not another piece of me
I always slip away from
I always slip away from

I won't say anything but
You can take it all away and I'll miss
There's a little bit of you in all this
And you can say you only think you know, yeah
Please, there's a better bit of me to see yet
Cause you haven't seen any of my best
You know I hate myself

Hurts the same when nobody knows
I guess that's just how it goes
And I won't say anything at all


I won't say anything at all

  Hi guys, have just started a new blog. Have been taking random song lyrics and researching their hidden meanings/the history of them for a while now and decided id share them with the world. Ive started with "Astronomy" by Blue Oyster Cult.
Ill also be ripping apart some Tool as my next project, im sure if you are a tool fan you would have heard rumours about the numerology involved, also going to do Televators, by The Mars Volta. Ive had a request for Pink Floyds, The Wall album, and all sorts of other things too so there is bound to be a bit of variety!! If you have a particular favourite that just lyrically makes no sense then feel free to leave me a message, ill consider it for ya.
My musical interests have a huge range, im not dedicated to one specific genre although rock is kinda where i am at at the moment.

Feel free to check it out, add your own interpretations and just enjoy learning something new.

Cheers! Kym.

"Kiss me i'm irish"-Gaelic Storm [11 Oct 2007|01:52pm]

[ mood | amused ]


Old song and old stories
They keep us alive
Without our past
We would never survive
I am my island
My island is me

So you know what you can do if you dont like what you see

Kiss me, I'm Irish
I am the wild rover
My eyes they are smiling
And I'm seldom sober
I like my whiskey
And I love to dance
So if youre feeling as lucky as me, take a chance
And kiss me I'm Irish


My heart beats a jig
And me blood, it flows green
I've been a rogue and a rambler
From ocean to sea
And I like a Bevy
Now and then this I'll never deny
But I only drink on the days of the week that end with a 'y'
I'm no saint I'm no sinner
Of that theres no doubt
I'll tell you the truth
I am the one that your grandmother warned you about


Kiss me, I'm Irish
I am the wild rover
My eyes they are smiling
And I'm seldom sober
I like my whiskey
And I love to dance
So if youre feeling as lucky as me, take a chance
And kiss me I'm Irish


Dublin, Milwaukee, Cleavlend and Cork
Kerry, Chicago and my New York
Befast and Boston, Donegal and DC
Raise you glasses and sing, sing, sing, sing with me:

Kiss me, I'm Irish
I am the wild rover
My eyes they are smiling
And I'm seldom sober
I like my whiskey
And I love to dance
So if youre feeling as lucky as me,
take a chance
And kiss me I'm Irish

I am the wild rover
My eyes they are smiling
And I'm seldom sober
I like my whiskey
And I love to dance
So if youre feeling as lucky as me, take a chance
And kiss me I'm Irish

A thousand miles
Seems pretty far
But they've got
Planes and trains and cars

If I had no other way

Because we know
That none of them have felt this way

Hello. I'm aware that most of you just take either song titles or chunks of lyrics and Google them, I can do that, my problem is a little tougher. The lyrics of this mostly unheard of song are not documented everywhere, so the only way to get them is to listen.

The song is The Fine Print - Untied, I uploaded it here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/3k8tvh

This is what I have figured out:

All I want is to see (say/seed/sing)
________
See you all wrapped up with need
And it's your own fault you're with me

You know that I lied
And still you smile across
From where I like to hide
To where the world got lost
If you're looking for something else
I must say that I mind
Well I very nearly died
Sewn and untied

Yep, just that one line I can't get. He says it three different ways throughout the song with slightly different pronunciation and clarity. I still can't figure it. Maybe someone here has better ears than I do.

Thanks!

Oh, and by the off chance anyone has ever heard of Penny Arcade (the webcomic), Tycho (Jerry) is the lead singer of this band. Yes. Tried e-mailing. Can't be reached. Yes. Contacted the rest of the band members. They don't remember what he's saying either and cannot reach him.

Sick Puppies-All the Same


I don't mind where you come from
As long as you come to me
I don't like illusions I can't see
Them clearly

I don't care no I wouldn't dare
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually
What you'll do

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long as you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same

Hours slide and days go by
Till you decide to come
And in between it always seems too long
All of a sudden

And I have the skill, yeah I have the will
To breathe you in while I can
However long you stay
Is all that I am

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long as you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's always the same

Wrong or right
Black or white
If I close my eyes
It's all the same

In my life
The compromise
I close my eyes
It's all the same

Go ahead say it you're leaving
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same

Gray, quiet and tired and mean
Picking at a worried seam
Itry to make you mad at me over the phone.
Red eyes and fire and signs
I'm taken by a nursery rhyme
I want to make a ray of sunshine and never leave home

No amount of coffee, no amount of crying
No amount of whiskey, no amount of wine
No, nothing else will do
I've gotta have you, I've gotta have you
.

The road gets cold, there's no spring in the middle this year
I'm the new chicken clucking open hearts and ears
Oh, such a prima donna, sorry for myself
But green, it is also summer
And I won't be warm till I'm lying in your arms

I see it all through a telescope: guitar, suitcase, and a warm coat
Lying in the back of the blue boat, humming a tune...

I always flirt with death
I could kill, but I don't care about it
I can face your threats
Stand up tall and scream and shout about it

I think I'm on another world with you
I'm on another planet with you


You always get under my skin
I don't find it irritating
You always play to win
I don't need rehabilitating

Another girl, another planet
Another girl, another planet

Space travels in my blood
And there ain't nothing I can do about it
Long journeys wear me out
Oh God we won't live without it

Another girl is loving you now
Another planet, forever holding you down
Another planet

Git on the floor!!!!! Whoa! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the DJ to play my song
And we could dance all night to the early mornin'

Oh! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the DJ to play my song
and we could dance all night to the early mornin'

Dance, an aphrodisiac
Women gyrating, simulating sensual acts
To stimulating musical tracks
I thought I was just gon' come out tonight and get a brew and relax
But no! Uh uh, when you're the party starter
It's like you're on call, you're what the doctor ordered
It's like you gotta block the border to the door
& shock em when it's boring....
GIT ON THE FLOOR!!
Ughh, it's the groovicide bomber, mic in my vest
Tight, strapped to my chest
Like, I'ma run up in the party hollerin'
& be like "Ohhh!", fulfillin' my callin'
Big! (Big), Will! (Will), that's my name, whoop!
Writin' rhymes, that's my game, whoop!
Ask me again and I'll tell you the same, whoop!
Just write ya number down right next to ya name, girl!

Whoa! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder

Whoa! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the DJ to play my song

He was raised in the days when the roof was raised
Every rap occasion, new and amazing
The back of the stage amazed and gazin'
Prayin for the day they would one day praise him
Studied the ways of the game & made it
Came through the maze and the haze & played it perfect
Days any person hated and cursed him, he was unfazed
He waited, it was worth it, he never retaliated
He saved it, slavin', on the road blazin'
Days when he was low, nothin' could raise him
He came to the show and somethin' uncaged in him
Like the pope, but its party crusade,
I'm like braids that's never gon'fade
(ya heard)
I'm like, 23's on an Escalade,
Throw me into the rave
like you threw a grenade - BOOM!!

Whoa! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the DJ to play my song
And we could dance all night to the early mornin'

Whoa! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the DJ to play my song
And we could dance all night to the early mornin'


I call for the days of the unadulterated
When the artistry was cultivated
You know, back when rap was smart and multilayered
We could rap without A and R's and ultimatums
(damn)
Now today I could say
I long for the days when the party was all about
partyin'
I was a mini-party starter then
My mind bends when I call my pen
The big question should I run the mind a vittle?
Food for thought or dumb the rhyme a little?
But Will "if you come to high that'll alienate folks & they won't buy it"
(yo),
Look, people getting trapped in the track
& they be clappin', even when the rappin' is wack
Yo, what happened, when did we get happy wit that?
He's old-fashioned
(yup),
but let's be happy he's back
(Ya heard me!)


I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the DJ to play my song

To all my killers and my hundred dollar billers
To emo kids that got too many feelings

He held the register open while he counted her change
I was next in line which meant I was invisible
From where I stood I could see that the till was full
He didn't look the type to play superhero
So I stepped forth and paid for my cigarettes
Crept out the stores front door to chase a little breath
Fangles in my head, shake the song off
Another manic Monday night, its gonna be a long walk

A car pulled up, a fixed up cutlass
A woman and a child climbed out and left it running
They went inside of the deli, placed an order
With the extra dollar fifty bottled water cuz the daughters picky
When they came out mommy gave me a glance
That said man can love an angel but he's got to take the chance
Already knew the deal, I lit one up and walk
So they got back in the oldsmobile, belted up, and took off

Thug love on the corner by the walgreens
Lookin at me like I'm just another square saltine
As I get closer I notice that they showin each other sketches
Out of their notebooks, reminded me of my old roots

I walk pass with a nod and a reminisce
Swear to god hip hop and comic books was my genesis
Respect the life and the fashions of the children
It's the only culture I've got, exactly what we've been buildin

All of a sudden I'm in front of some man
No he's a youngin but he's got a gun in his hand
He looks fifteen, he looks frantic, no he looks afraid
Immediately apprehensive til I heard him say
"Do you want this It's not mine I promise
I found it on my block in between a couple garages
Didn't wanna leave it for a child to stumble over
I don't even know how to hold it."

It was a thirty eight, the poor mans machete
Held it in my hand, thinking damn man it's heavier then expected,
Wedged it behind my belt buckle
Knowin that its evil, even thought that I could smell trouble
The extra strength felt weak,
But over there on the corner saw what I needed and proceeded to cross the
Street
Put the heat in the mail box to loose it
Figured that the post office knows whats best to do with it


Mosey down the road thinkin' bout the old
I use to roam this zone with two feet of snow
Right here, this use to be a record shop
I've gotten love, I've gotten drunk, I've gotten beat up in that parking lot
I've had my lake street pride for three decades
These alleyways, and these streetlights have seen my best days
Before I was a germ learnin how to misbehave,
All the way to the grave, south side is my resting place

Took a right on Lyndale I'm getting near
But then the road became empty and the people disappear'd
The clowds ran away, opened up the sky
And one by one I watched every constellation die
And there I was frozen, standin in my backyard
Face to face, eye to eye, starin at the last star
I should've known, walked all the way home
To find that she wasn't here, I'm still all alone

No matter where I am, no matter what I do
I'm always coming back home to you
They can leave me for dead they can take away my true
I'm always coming back home to you
Through the lies and the sins that ride the wind that blew
I'm always coming back home to you
As sure as the life in the garden that you grew
I'm always coming back home to you
No matter where I am, no matter what I do
I'm always coming back home to you
If only I had known what you already knew
I'm always coming back home to you
From the heaven I've had to the hell I been through
I'm always coming back home to you
I'm always coming back home to you

yes, but can it do the ultimate song, "More than a feeling"? [06 Feb 2007|11:11am]

shortypenguin

looked out this morning and the sun was gone
Turned on some music to start my day
I lost myself in a familiar song
I closed my eyes and I slipped away


It’s more than a feeling,
When I hear that old song they used to play
(more than a feeling)
I begin dreaming
(more than a feeling)
’till I see marianne walk away
I see my marianne walkin’ away


So many people have come and gone
Their faces fade as the years go by
Yet I still recall as I wander on
As clear as the sun in the summer sky


It’s more than a feeling,
When I hear that old song they used to play
(more than a feeling)
I begin dreaming
(more than a feeling)
’till I see marianne walk away
I see my marianne walkin’ away


When I’m tired and thinking cold
I hide in my music, forget the day
And dream of a girl I used to know
I closed my eyes and she slipped away
She slipped away. she slipped away.

It’s more than a feeling,
When I hear that old song they used to play
(more than a feeling)
I begin dreaming
(more than a feeling)
’till I see marianne walk away
I see my marianne walkin’ away

[ mood | creative ]

This city has lost it's two front teeth, now she wears a frown.
Ideology, this spawn of woe
An evil smile turned upsidedown

Why did we avert our eyes, why did we fail to see
The tides of war eclipsing fate and drowning destiny

God doesn't live here anymore
Sold the world and left the war

God doesn't live here anymore
Praise be to ruination as he slams the door

God doesn't live here anymore
Now can we fill this hole in the world?

His lies were drawing close the enemy
In this cold dead sea of sympathy
For a devil draped in agony
Amongst his waiting cold black regime


God doesn't live here anymore
Sold the world and left the war

God doesn't live here anymore
Praise be to ruination as he slams the door

God doesn't live here anymore
Now can we fill this hole in the world?
