Waxing Lyrical

Recommended Posts

I always start this thread, and no-one is ever interested, but at least we have illdog, and he's easily please, so here I present the "Lyrics that make you fink and that" thread or "Lyrics what I proper like", however you see it, post the lyrics you reckon people should be reading... Here's one:

Clem Snide - A Parable

Shuffleboard the afternoon away for two

and taste the plastic in my smile

I can suffer if you really want me to

For a parable it's really worth your while

Is your life story about you?

Because I just can't relate,

But I've no reason to doubt you

It's great.

Lay your head here on my breast

Coz I have food,

and put your cookies in my milk

This metaphor is just a door that you walk through

Around the camp fire, it was late.

Shuffleboard the afternoon away for two

and taste the plastic in my smile

I can suffer if you really want me to

For a parable it's worth your while.

And here's two:

(You really should hear this song, it's beautiful)

Smog - Vessel in Vain

I can't be held responsible

For the things I've seen

For I am just

A vessel in vain

I can't be held responsible

For the things I see

For I am just

A vessel in vain

No boat out on no ocean

No name there on no hull

It's not a strain at all

to remember

those that I left behind

They're all standing here beside me now

and most of them with a smile

My ideals got me on the run

toward my connections with everyone

My ideals have got me on the run

toward my connections with everyone

My ideals have got me on the run

It's my connection with everyone

Such free reign, for a vessel in vain.

I dont really like this group but whenever I hear this song it makes me think.

POD -outh of the Nation

Last day of the rest of my life I wish I would have known cause i'd have kissed my

momma goobye. I didn't tell her that I loved her or how much cared or thank my

pops for all the talks and all the wisdom he shared. Unaware I just did what I

always do. Everyday the same routine before I skate off to school but who knew

that

this day wasnt like the rest, instead of takin the test I took two to the chest.

Call me blind but I didn't see it comin and everybody was runnin but I couldn't

hear nothin, except gun blast, it happened so fast I didn't really know this kid

though I sat by him in class. Maybe this kid was reachin out for love or maybe

for a moment he forgot who he was or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged,

whatever it was I know its because

CHORUS

We are We are the youth of the nation (repeat)x4

Little Suzzy she was only twelve she was given the world with every chance to

excel

Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell she might act kinda proud

but no respect for herself

She finds love in all the wrong places the same situations but different faces.

Changed up her pace since her daddy left her too bad he never told her she

deserved much better.

Johnny boy always played the fool, he broke all the rules so you would think he

was cool.

He was never really one of the guys no matter how hard he tried, with the

thought of suicide

It's kinda hard when you ain't got no friends, he put his life to an end they

might remember him then.

You cross a line and there is no turnin back he told the world how he felt with

the sound of a gat.

CHORUS x4

Whos to blame for the life that tragedies claim no matter what you say it won't

take away the pain, that I feel inside I'm tired of all the lies don't nobody know

why it's the blind leadin the blind.

Guess that's the way that the story goes, will it ever make sense somebody's

gotta

know, there's gotta be more to life than this, there's got to be more to everything

I thought exists

(and I think people should pay more atention to the lyrics. It's the best part of the good songs.

I like Hooker With A Penis by Tool.

Its about some fan coming up to the singer telling him he thinks he sold out and he was there in the beginning.

This is his responce......

Hooker With A Penis

I met a boy wearing Vans, 501s, and a dope Beastie t, nipple rings, and

New tattoos that claimed that he was OGT,

From '92, the first EP.

And in between sips of Coke

He told me that he thought we were sellin' out,

Layin' down, suckin' up

To the man.

Well now I've got some A-dvice for you, little buddy.

Before you point the finger you should know that I'm the man,

And if I'm the man, then you're the man, and

He's the man as well so you can

Point that fuckin' finger up your ass.

All you know about me is what I've sold you, dumb fuck.

I sold out long before you ever heard my name.

I sold my soul to make a record, dip shit,

And you bought one.

So I've got some A-dvice for you, little buddy.

Before you point your finger you should know that I'm the man,

If I'm the fuckin' man then you're the fuckin' man as well

So you can point that fuckin' finger up your ass.

All you read and wear or see and

Hear on TV is a product

Begging for your fatass dirty dollar

So...Shut up and

Buy my new record

Send more money

Fuck you, buddy.

Some classic Gravediggaz lyrics, not exactly deep and meaningful but they can tell a good story using rhymes. This is verse 2 and 3 from 1-800-Suicide...

Hey you little rich kid, what's your beef?

Come and tell the Grym Reaper all of your grief

You asked for a Benz and you only got a Jeep

Your pop's got endz, but yo he's mad cheap

Maybe you're a bastard child you think

Mom and dad are white and you're dark as ink

Maybe you're Sicilian with a tan

But you hate lasagna and the pizza man

Now you stand on the grave digga lott and

You're singing the blues about the rough life you've got

Not!

You don't wanna live no more

I guess you're really ready for the grave yard tour

When you get home just seal up your windows and you doors

Turn your oven on high for about four hours

Light you a blunt, kiss your ass goodbye

You gassed yourself 'cause it's a suicide

Suicide, its a suicide, bidi-eye-bye, Suicide its a Suicide...

Six fucking devils stepped up playing brave God

Had the fucking nerve to try and enter my grave yard

I'm the Rza-rector, be my sacrafice

Commit suicide and I'll bring you back to life

The first was convinced

Stuck a water hose in his mouth at full blast so his head can explode

Second said hmmmm that's good but I can top it

Put an axe up to his head and then he chopped it

Blood shot out in every direction

The rest didn't know what to do, I made suggestions

Put a slug in your mug, overdose on a drug

Wet your hair stick a knife in the plug

Or be like Richard Pryor set your balls on fire

Better yet go hang yourself with a barbed wire

Three and Four fell deep into spell and

Ran to the zoo, locked themselves in a lion's den

Number Five said it ain't worth being alive

Smoked a dust suede, mixed it with cynaide

The only one to escape was number Six

He went home

Sat in the tub and slit his wrists

Yeah, more graves to dig. Goodbye

There's no need to cry...

... cause we all die

Blue October - Hate Me

About someone whose telling his mum to hate him so she can be happy

I have to block out thoughts of you, so I don't lose my head

They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed

Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I'm alone

Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home

There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain

An ounce of peace is all I want for you, Will you never call again?

And will you never say that you love me just to put it in my face

And will you never try to reach me, it is I that wanted space

Hate me today.

Hate me tomorrow.

Hate me for all the things i didn't do for you.

Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow.

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

I'm sober now for 3 whole months, it's one accomplishment that you helped me with.

The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won't touch again.

In my sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night

While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight

You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate.

You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take

So I'll drive so fucking far away that I'll never cross your mind

And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

Hate me today.

Hate me tomorrow.

Hate me for all the things i didn't do for you.

Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow.

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave

Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I have made

And like a baby boy I never was a man

Until I saw your blue eyes cry and I held your face in my hand

And then I fell down yelling "Make it go away!"

Just make her smile come back and shine just like it used to be

And then she whispered "How can you do this to me?"

Hate me today.

Hate me tomorrow.

Hate me for all the things i didn't do for you.

Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow.

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

A poem I wrote...

It's about war...

I shot a German today,

He screamed in dismay,

His face turned a funny shade of purple,

then he ran in a crazy circle,

He fell into a trench,

Hit his head of a bench.

Then his mate shot me.

There's some good stuff so far on this thread, particularly enjoyed Hinns contribution and the first verse of Relmatos's. And the Baldrick poem.

Leonard Cohen: The Stranger Song

It's true that all the men you knew were dealers who said they were through with dealing

Every time you gave them shelter

I know that kind of man

It's hard to hold the hand of anyone

who is reaching for the sky just tosurrender

who is reaching for the sky just to surrender.

And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind

you find he did not leave you very much not even laughter

Like any dealer he was watching for the card

that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another

He was just some Joseph looking for a manger

He was just some Joseph looking for a manger.

And then leaning on your window sill

he'll say one day you caused his will

to weaken with your love and warmth and shelter

And then taking from his wallet

an old schedule of trains,

he'll say

I told you when I came I was a stranger

I told you when I came I was a stranger.

But now another stranger seems

to want you to ignore his dreams

as though they were the burden of some other

O you've seen that man before

his golden arm dispatching cards

but now it's rusted from the elbows to the finger

And he wants to trade the game he plays for shelter

Yes he wants to trade the game he knows for shelter.

Ah you hate to see another tired man lay down his hand

like he was giving up the holy game of poker

And while he talks his dreams to sleep

you notice there's a highway that is curling up like smoke above his shoulder

It is curling just like smoke above his shoulder.

You tell him to come in sit down

but something makes you turn around

The door is open you can't close your shelter

You try the handle of the road

It opens do not be afraid

It's you my love, you who are the stranger

It's you my love, you who are the stranger.

Well, I've been waiting, I was sure

we'd meet between the trains we're waiting for

I think it's time to board another

Please understand, I never had a secret chart

to get me to the heart of this or any other matter

When he talks like this you don't know what he's after

When he speaks like this, you don't know what he's after.

Let's meet tomorrow if you choose upon the shore, beneath the bridge

that they are building on some endless river

Then he leaves the platform for the sleeping car that's warm

You realize, he's only advertising one more shelter

And it comes to you, he never was a stranger

And you say ok the bridge or some place later.

I told you when I came I was a stranger.

Just because when I was given _another_ nickleback song to listen to I was aprihensive but I really like this one.. its different.. *grins*

Nickelback - Animals Lyrics

I, I'm driving black on black

Just got my license back

I got this feeling in my veins this train is coming off the

track

I'll ask polite if the devil needs a ride

Because the angel on my right ain't hanging out with me

tonight

I'm driving past your house while you were sneaking out

I got the car door opened up so you can jump in on the run

Your mom don't know that you were missing

She'd be pissed if she could see the parts of you that I've been

kissing

Screamin'

[CHORUS]

No, we're never gonna quit

Ain't nothing wrong with it

Just acting like we're animals

No, no matter where we go

'Cause everybody knows

We're just a couple of animals

So come on baby, get in

Get in, just get in

Check out the trouble we're in

You're beside me on the seat

Got your hand between my knees

And you control how fast we go by just how hard you wanna

squeeze

It's hard to steer when you're breathing in my ear

But I got both hands on the wheel while you got both hands on my

gears

By now, no doubt that we were heading south

I guess nobody ever taught her not to speak with a full mouth

'Cause this was it, like flicking on a switch

It felt so good I almost drove into the ditch

I'm screamin'

[CHORUS]

No, we're never gonna quit

Ain't nothing wrong with it

Just acting like we're animals

No, no matter where we go

'Cause everybody knows

We're just a couple of animals

So come on baby, get in

Get in, just get in

Look at the trouble we're in

We were parked out by the tracks

We're sitting in the back

And we just started getting busy

When she whispered "what was that?"

The wind, I think 'cause no one else knows where we are

And that was when she started screamin'

"That's my dad outside the car!"

Oh please, the keys, they're not in the ignition

Must have wound up on the floor while

we were switching our positions

I guess they knew that she was missing

As I tried to tell her dad it was her mouth that I was

kissing

Screamin'

[CHORUS]

No, we're never gonna quit

Ain't nothing wrong with it

Just acting like we're animals

No, no matter where we go

'Cause everybody knows

We're just a couple of animals

So come on baby, get in

We're just a couple of animals

Get in, just get in

Ain't nothing wrong with it

Check out the trouble we're in

We're just a couple of animals

Get in, just get in

and indeed "Big Bottom":

"My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo,

I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo,

Big bottom, big bottom,

talk about bum cakes, my girl's got 'em,

Big bottom drives me out of my mind,

How can I leave this behind?"

I could probably pick any number of shellac songs, but here' just one

Shellac - Prayer to god

To the one true God above:

here is my prayer -

not the first you've heard, but the first I wrote.

(not the first, but the others were a long time ago).

There are two people here, and I want you to kill them.

Her - she can go quietly, by disease or a blow

to the base of her neck,

where her necklaces close,

where her garments come together,

where I used to lay my face...

That's where you oughta kill her,

in that particular place.

Him - just fucking kill him, I don't care if it hurts.

Yes I do, I want it to,

fucking kill him but first

make him cry like a woman,

(no particular woman),

let him hold out, hold back

(someone or other might come and fucking kill him).

Fucking kill him.

Kill him already, kill him.

Fucking kill him, fucking kill him,

Kill him already, kill him,

Just fucking kill him!

I've never heard that song Ben, but I've read the words a few times before.

One of Albini's more infamous songs (mind you, every Albini song is a bit in yer face).

I'm currently listening to this one and it has some of my favourite lines.

It's probably not hard to guess who it's about......

Leaders of the Free World by Elbow

I’m sick of working for a living

I’m just ticking off the days till I die

I miss you Louise

And the sickest little pleasures keep me going in between pulling teeth

Periscope up

I’ve been looking for a ladder

I need to see the commander in chief

And remind him what was passed onto me

Well your mum don’t sleep!

The friends you keep!

I didn’t raise a thief!

I didn't raise a thief!

But the leaders of the free world

Are just little boys throwing stones

And its easy to ignore ‘til they’re knocking on the door of your homes

My thinking isn’t driven

But the music always gives me a lift

I’m so easy to please

But I think we dropped the baton like the 60’s didn’t happen. Oh no.

Periscope up

Should be looking for a ladder

I need to see the commander in chief

And remind him what was passed onto me

Your mum don’t sleep!

The friends you keep!

I didn’t raise a thief!

I didn’t raise a thief!

Passing the gun from Father to feckless son

We’re climbing a landslide where only the good die young
