manilla road - "venusian sea"

I traversed through the galaxy

To come to this place

A wild envisioned dream of mine

Tolive deep in space

A course that I have set myself

I will be strong

For however long it takes

To reach my final destiny

I will be free

And now unto me

Venusian Sea

I've got to it alone

There'll be no help

In the danger zone

I've got to give it my all

Everything that I've lived for

Venusia my dream

I traversed through the galaxy

To come to this place

A wild envisioned dream of mine

Tolive deep in space

A course that I have set myself

I will be strong

For however long it takes

To reach my final destiny

I will be free

And now unto me

Venusian Sea

Just like a dream

Now I believe

A city beneath

Venusian Sea

What do you see?

What do you care?

Have you found it?

Is it really there?

I your own mind

For the rest of all time

Have you lost all of your pride?

In your life

Venusia my dream

One - Metallica

I cant remember anything

Cant tell if this is true or dream

Deep down inside I feel to scream

This terrible silence stops me

Now that the war is through with me

Im waking up I can not see

That there is not much left of me

Nothing is real but pain now

Hold my breath as I wish for death

Oh please god,wake me

Back in the womb its much too real

In pumps life that I must feel

But cant look forward to reveal

Look to the time when Ill live

Fed through the tube that sticks in me

Just like a wartime novelty

Tied to machines that make me be

Cut this life off from me

Hold my breath as I wish for death

Oh please god,wake me

Now the world is gone Im just one

Oh god,help me hold my breath as I wish for death

Oh please God help me

Darkness imprisoning me

All that I see

Absolute horror

I cannot live

I cannot die

Trapped in myself

Body my holding cell

Landmine has taken my sight

Taken my speech

Taken my hearing

Taken my arms

Taken my legs

Taken my soul

Left me with life in hell

Thin Lizzy - "Emerald"

Down from the glen came the marching men

With their shields and their swords

To fight the fight they believed to be right

Overthrow the overlords

To the town where there was plenty

They brought plunder, swords and flame

When they left the town was empty

Children would never play again

From their graves I heard the fallen

Above the battle cry

By that bridge near the border

There were many more to die

Then onward over the mountain

And outward towards the sea

They had come to claim the Emerald

Without it they could not leave

Return To Innocence - Enigma

Love - devotion

Feeling - emotion

Don't be afraid to be weak

Don't be too proud to be strong

Just look into your heart my friend

That will be the return to yourself

The return to innocence

If you want, then start to laugh

If you must, then start to cry

Be yourself don't hide

Just believe in destiny

Don't care what people say

Just follow your own way

Don't give up and use the chance

To return to innocence

Thats not the beginning of the end

Thats the return to yourself

The return to innocence

Joy Division - Atmosphere

Walk in silence,

Don't walk away, in silence.

See the danger,

Always danger,

Endless talking,

Life rebuilding,

Don't walk away.

Walk in silence,

Don't turn away, in silence.

Your confusion,

My illusion,

Worn like a mask of self-hate,

Confronts and then dies.

Don't walk away.

People like you find it easy,

Naked to see,

Walking on air.

Hunting by the rivers,

Through the streets,

Every corner abandoned too soon,

Set down with due care.

Don't walk away in silence,

Don't walk away.

I'll pull a fast one on all of you, a lot of you know i'm into death/ melodic/speed metal and the like. But how about this? Metal fans, listen to this as well, it's just a perfectly written song, musically and lyrically. Sad one too.

The Ballad of Casey Deiss - Shawn Phillips

Twas a man of youthful features

Twas a boy of sorrowful eyes

Watching out but looking inward

Tall and stately and full of life

In his life he spoke but rarely

In his mind he cried for light

Painting perceptions trying to capture

That which he saw in his questioning strife

Once in Lisbon, twice in London

Travelling around for all of his time

Looking for and finding a goddess

He took Diana to be his wife

Of the children they'd begotten

Two had died without knowing life

And the third I know not whereof

But if she lives, she will yet be kind

Casey had a mark of simple value

He had a star between his eyes

In his hands he held an axe blade

The Greek symbol of thunder and fire

On a night when the heavens were crying

He went down and took his blade

Chopping wood to warm his hearthside

The lightning came and my brother died

Bring him no wine from faraway vineyards

Tell him no tales of the canyon's might

But wish him peace and eternal wisdom

For he has died and he died in light

Some of the lyrics from All The Madmen (David Bowie). The first two lines are my favourite of any song:

Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall

I'm not quite right at all...am I?

Don't set me free, I'm as heavy as can be

Just my librium and me

And my E.S.T. makes three

'Cause I'd rather stay here

With all the madmen

Than perish with the sadmen roaming free

And I'd rather play here

With all the madmen

For I'm quite content they're all as sane

As me

Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy Name (my ALL-TIME fave song)

I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime

Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time

'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole

The sands of time for me are running low

When the priest comes to read me the last rites

I take a look through the bars at the last sights

Of a world that has gone very wrong for me

Can it be there's been some sort of an error

Hard to stop the surmounting terror

Is it really the end not some crazy dream

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming

It's not easy to stop from screaming

But words escape me when I try to speak

Tears they flow but why am I crying?

After all am I not afraid of dying?

Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard

Someone calls from a cell "God be with you"

If there's a God then why has he let me die?

As I walk all my life drifts before me

And though the end is near I'm not sorry

Catch my soul 'cause it's willing to fly away

Mark my words believe my soul lives on

Don't worry now that I have gone

I've gone beyond to see the truth

When you know that your time is close at hand

Maybe then you'll begin to understand

Life down there is just a strange illusion

Yeah, yeah, yeah,

Hallowed be Thy name

Yeah, yeah, yeah,

Hallowed be Thy name

and ...

Megadeth - Hangar 18 (my fave Megadeth song and the inspiration for my username)

Welcome to our fortress tall

Take some time to show you around

Impossible to break these walls

For you see the steel is much too strong

Computer banks to rule the world

Instruments to sight the stars

Possibly I've seen too much

Hangar 18 I know too much.

Foreign life forms inventory

Suspended State of cryogenics

Selective amnesia's the story

Believed foretold but who'd suspect

The military intelligence

Two words combined that can't make sense

Possibly I've seen too much

Hangar 18 I know too much.

i love the lyrics to that song...but my favorite maiden lyrics for personal reasons will always be "running free" that was my self-proclaimed anthem when i was 14

"Just sixteen, a pick-up truck, out of money, out of luck

I've got noplace to call my own, hit the gas and here I go

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free

Spent the night in an L.A. jail and listened to the sirens wail

They ain't got a thing on me, I'm running wild, I'm running free, yeah!

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free

-- Get out my way!

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free

Pulled her at the Bottle Top - whiskey, dancing, disco hop

Now all the boys are after me and that's the way it's gonna be

I'm running free, yeah! I'm running free..."

Brand New - Me Vs. Maradona Vs. Elvis

After one or two I get used to the room

We go slow when we first make our moves

By five or six bring you out to the car

Number nine with my head on the bar

And it's sad, but true

Out of cash and I.O.U's

I got desperate desires and unadmirable plans

My tongue will taste of gin and malicious intent

Bring you back to the bar

Get you out of the cold

My sober, straight face gets you out of your clothes

And they're scared that we know

All the crimes they'll commit

Who they'll kiss before they get home

I will lie awake

Lie for fun and fake the way I hold you

Let you fall for every empty word I say

Barely conscious in the door where you stand

Your eyes are fighting sleep while your mouth makes your demands

You laugh at every word trying hard to be cute

I almost feel sorry for what I'm gonna do

And your hair smells of smoke

Who will cast the first stone?

You can sin or spend the night all alone

Brass buttons on your coat hold the cold

In the shape of a heart that they cut out of stone

You're using all your looks that you've thrown from the start

If you let me have my way I swear I'll tear you apart

Cause it's all you can be

You're a drunk and you're scared

It's ladies night, all the girls drink for free

I will lie awake

Lie for fun and fake the way I hold you

Let you fall for every empty word I say

Alkaline Trio - Clavicle

I've been on top of the world since about six months ago,

marking the first time i laid eyes on you.

I lost all train of thought as I entered the room.

I saw what looked like really good food, then I saw you and so did you.

I wanna wake up naked next to you,

kissing the curve in your clavicle.

Kissing your clavicle.

I've been on top of the world since about 1 week ago,

marking a time when I was drunk enough to talk to you.

I lost all train of thought as your eyes met mine.

told you I thought you were gorgeous.

you gave me your phone number, I gave you mine.

Before you left I said that you can bet I'll be bothering you soon.

you said, "no bother, please do."

I've called you twice.

it's been a hellish fight to not think about you all the time.

sitting around waiting for your call.

I wanna wake up naked next to you,

kissing the curve in your clavicle.

kissing your clavicle.

I wanna wake up naked next to you, kissing the curve in yourrrrrrrrr

clavicle.

Across The Universe - The Beatles

"Words are flying out like

endless rain into a paper cup

They slither while they pass

They slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow waves of joy

are drifting thorough my open mind

Possessing and caressing me"

Rush - "Circumstances" from Hemispheres

"A boy alone, so far from home,

Endless rooftops from my window.

I felt the gloom of empty rooms

On rainy afternoons.

Sometimes in confusion,

I felt so lost and disillusioned,

Innocence gave me confidence

To go up against reality.

Chorus

All the same we take our chances,

Laughed at by time,

Tricked by circumstances.

Plus ça change,

Plus c'est la meme chose

The more that things change,

The more they stay the same.

Now I've gained some understanding

Of the only world that we see.

Things that I once dreamed of

Have become reality.

These walls that still surround me

Still contain the same old me,

Just one more who's searching for

A world that ought to be. "

Jack Johnson - sleep trough the static

Who needs sleep when we’ve got love?

Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs?

Who needs please when we’ve got guns?

Who needs peace when we’ve gone above

But beyond where we should have gone?

Jack Johnson . Great guy, great artist...good ol' hawaian surfer dude

and i found these pretty funy compared to his usual songs

You...

You believed ...

You believed in movements none could see.

You believed in me

A passionate spirit

Uncompromised

Boundless and open

A light in your eyes

Then immobilized.

Broken

Fell at the hands of those movements that I wouldn't see

Yet it was you who prayed for me.

So what have I done

To be a son to an angel?

What have I done

To be worthy?

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents

Difficult to see you in this light

Please forgive this selfish question, but

What am I to say to all these ghouls tonight?

"She never told a lie,

... well might have told a lie,

But never lived one.

Didn't have a life,

Didn't have a life,

But surely saved one."

See? I'm alright

Now it's time for us to let you go.

Listen to the tales and romanticize,

How we'd follow the path of the hero.

Boast about the day when the rivers overrun.

How we rise to the height of our halo.

Listen to the tales as we all rationalize

Our way into the arms of the savior,

Feigning all the trials and the tribulations;

None of us have actually been there.

Not like you.

Ignorant siblings in the congregation

Gather around spewing sympathy,

Spare me.

None of them can even hold a candle up to you.

Blinded by choice, these hypocrites won't see.

But, enough about the collective Judas.

Who could deny you were the one who

Illuminated your little piece of the divine?

And this little light of mine, a gift you passed on to me;

I'm gonna let it shine to guide you safely on your way,

Your way home ...

Oh, what are they going to do when the lights go down

Without you to guide them all to Zion?

What are they going to do when the rivers overrun

Other than tremble incessantly?

High is the way, but all eyes are upon the ground.

You were the light and the way they'll only read about.

I only pray, Heaven knows when to lift you out.

Ten thousand days in the fire is long enough;

You're going home.

You're the only one who can hold your head up high,

Shake your fists at the gates saying:

"I've come home now!

Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father.

Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended.

It's time now!

My time now!

Give me my, give me my wings!"

You are the light and way that they will only read about.

Set as I am in my ways and my arrogance,

(With the) burden of proof tossed upon the believers.

You were my witness, my eyes, my evidence,

Judith Marie, unconditional one.

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents.

Difficult to see you in this light.

Please forgive this bold suggestion, but

Should you see your Maker's face tonight,

Look Him in the eye, look Him in the eye, and tell Him:

"I never lived a lie, never took a life, but surely saved one.

Hallelujah, it's time for you to bring me home."

When night falls

She cloaks the world

In impenetrable darkness

A chill rises from the soil

And contaminates the air

Suddenly...

Life has new meaning

-----

I am bound to past

And stagnant presence

Sallow faces, seducers

Seize my threads of mind

------

Enjewelled the crown, of mirrored deception

Where the serpent lay coiled, upon Babilian tower

In charnel gardens, spawn twelve black orchids

Colder than death, incandescent they shine

Sentinels of stone, speak sweet delirium

Paragons of virtue, with poison tongues

Ossific cathedrals masqued in innocence

Belie wrath arcanum (are we undone)

Downward christus soldier onwards

From your twisted tower (of malice and spite)

The opiate archeus that you feast upon

Our primal lands of winter and night

Damn us all with your mercy and charity

From chaos is found, true shape and form

The inferno of summer may hold us in check

But some day we will awaken, no longer in thrall

Love bird, you flew into my window

Now in the sticky love nest sits a widow

The tree it fell on all the people

Gathered there to watch it topple

Now turn around, it's burning down

The city we live in

Should we mumble lies?

Take them by surprise?

Let them have their way with us?

Wounds be by old enemies

Broke my heart to see

Foundations ripped apart

And investments fade away

I guess we got off to a bad start

No oxygen

What is the outcome?

Hungry humans

We've got to enslave them

We'll burn those bridges

When we come to them

I'm not just their leader

I'm also one of them

The food supply has been depleted

The river's ran dry just when it was needed

The rats come out to take it over

Singing, squeaking, "We built this city"

It's hard to breathe

But we couldn't leave

Nowhere left to go

Almost everybody died

Drank the tears from those who cried

We shriveled from the sodium

And a map was found with an X on it

So we followed it there

And what did we find?

An underground design

As we entered in to our surprise

Oxygen

Rivers of playgrounds

The ancients just stayed down

They never stopped moving

We stumbled towards them

But they locked all the barn doors

So we had to dig deeper

We had to dig deeper

And the deep was dark

I wanted to sleep forever

Wake up later, maybe never

We had to build a civilization

Let the planet focus on the planet's rotation

We tried, we tried

We really tried

But no one could do it

Happily alive

Never learned how to survive

We were humans being useless

No oxygen

What is the outcome?

Hungry humans

We've got to enslave them

We'll burn those bridges

When we come to them

I'm not just their leader

I'm also one of them

We’re freed into oblivion

No traces of civilized living eating the earth

We're fading to oblivion

No traces of civilized living eaten by earth

Humans by Islands.

And I'd give up forever to touch you

Cause I know that you feel me somehow

You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be

And I don't want to go home right now

[...]

Cause sooner or later it's over

I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me

Because I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am

i'm with jagh. my alltime fave song i think is "iris" but i think its cause the song itself conveys the emotion of the lyrics

also like the lines

"some dance to remember some dance to forget" in hotel california

"Mistakes don't mean a thing

If you don't regret them"greatest view from silverchair

and

"Half full glasses

Lost in empty houses " world upon your shoulders also silverchair (though i don't really like the song itself)
