Hello, here is my song I love at the moment. The music and lyrics are timeless imo. and fits to the situation today very well.
Bob Marley - WAR:

What life has taught me
I would like to share with
Those who want to learn...

Until the philosophy which hold one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there are no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be persued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of war

And until that day, the African continent
Will not know peace, we Africans will fight
We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory

Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil



and now its your turn, what song lyrics do you like?

Woo, a song thread!

I like this one. a good friend of mine wrote it. A lilting melody with overtones of marine adventure.

Come As You Are
Once, long ago and almost forgotten,
A melody rang through the air.
A sound which had never resounded before;
Its beauty you could not compare.

It came from the hearts of those who surrendered
Like soil that yields to the seed.
The gardener planted, they started to grow.
With one voice they called earnestly
To any whose hearts would receive, saying

Chorus
Come as you are.
Leave your goals behind.
Come, sing with me.
A new song you'll find.

As time drifted by their hearts became hardened
And nothing could grow but the weeds.
The melody faded, they drifted apart.
Their eyes only looked inwardly.

They tried imitating the same ancient sound,
But never could bring it about.
Their glory departed, their unity lost.
The melody could not be found.
The harmony could not be found.

The mind of the wise cannot ever replace it.
The sound is an echo of what's in the heart.
The mystery hidden could never be given
To people who live to pretend,
Seeking the glory of men.

The gardener was waiting.
He had preserved a seed.
He only waited for a yielding heart.
When the soil was ready
He placed it carefully.
Something now is growing steadily.

If you watch intently, you might see it growing.
It's not so impressive to the natural eye.
Now listen closely, can you hear it sounding?
A new song you cannot deny,
Like the start of a triumphant cry, saying

Chorus
Come as you are.
Leave your goals behind.
Come, sing with me.
A new song you'll find.


written by my friend Paul.

TITLE: For What It's Worth



There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down



There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down




A song that was partially responsible for my waking up :)

THE WARMTH
By: Incubus

I'd like to close my eyes and go numb
But there's a cold wind coming from
The top of the highest high rise today
Its not a breeze cuz it blows hard
Yes and it wants me to discard the
The humanity I know, watched the warmth blow away
So don't let the world bring you down
Not everyone here is that fucked up and cold
Remember why you came and while you're alive
Experience the warmth before you grow old
So do you think I should adhere
To that pressing new frontier
And leave in my wake, a trail of fear
Should I hold my head up high
And throw a wrench and spokes by
I'm leaving the air behind me clear
So don't let the world bring you down
Not everyone here is that fucked up and cold
Remember why you came and while you're alive
Experience the warmth before you grow old
So don't let the world bring you down
Not everyone here is that fucked up and cold
Remember why you came and while you're alive
Experience the warmth before you grow old
Before you grow old

i couldn't pick one so i have put two in

Victor Wooten

THINK ABOUT THAT (lyrics spoken)


Yeah, I mean, I know. It's a scary thought though. Well not really scary but sometimes
Something that's mind opening can appear scary.
I don't know, I just think we should all just sit down and think, even if we just think just
A little bit, um, the answers will probably all show up.

(Where would u lead them? Think about that. If the whole world decided to follow U.)

Yeah, absolutely. But before we can think about leading anybody, I think we should think about where we're leading ourselves. (Think about that.)

No, I know what u mean. It's not a job I would want, trying to lead anybody. I mean, I have trouble leading myself. (Where would u lead them?)

But if I had to lead anybody anywhere I think I would, I'd probably just try to lead them back to themselves.
Yeah, because, the self is not a place that u can lead anyone. Everybody would have to find their own way, and then the leading job would be over for me. I like that.

Yeah, but when we're first born, u know, we're our own person but soon after, u know, when we start to learn and we learn from our parents and we start to go to school, we really, quickly start to get away from ourselves.

I mean, u can't really go through any structured teaching, uh, learning establishment with your own ideas. U know, u're always taught to fit in. But what are we fitting into?
U know, don't color outside the lines. Who drew the lines in the first place. I don't know
(Think about that!)

Right. That makes sense. Yeah, but I've spent my whole life trying to be in control of myself. But I dislike any one or any situation that tries to control me.
So, check this out. My trying to control myself just causes me to dislike myself. I'm finally understanding it.
I should just let me be. That's what I ask everybody else to do.

Right, yeah exactly, yeah, the act of trying to control something usually means that there's something wrong with it, and so that means we have to control it obviously.
To control something usually means taking its freedom away. So why would I spend a life fighting for freedom, just so I can take it away. Um, In the name of control.

(If the whole world decided today, to follow u. where would u lead them? Think about that)

Vibrations? Yeah, it's actually pretty simple. The thing is nothing ever stops vibrating.
Scientists know that, I mean they'll tell u that everything is a vibration. Right, yeah.
I mean, things vibrate faster they may appear as light, slower it may appear as something solid or something like that. But even thoughts are vibrations.

But the key here is that nothing ever stops vibrating, ever.
So check it out. Everything that ever vibrated is still vibrating. Everything that ever was still is. That's cool.

Yeah, me too. It's really makes me want to pay attention to the vibrations that I'm putting out there.
"Cause do they ever go away? (Think about that!)

(If the whole world decided to follow u…)

OK, Yeah, It's been fun.

(…Where would u lead them?)

I love u too, Bye Bye.

Prison Song
They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison,

Following the rights movements
You clamped on with your iron fists,
Drugs became conveniently
Available for all the kids,
Following the rights movements
You clamped on with your iron fists,
Drugs became conveniently
Available for all the kids,

I buy my crack, my smack, my bitch,
Right here in Hollywood,

Nearly 2 million Americans are incarcerated
In the prison system,
Prison system of the U.S.

They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison, (for you and me to live in)
Another prison system,
Another prison system,
Another prison system. (for you and me to live in)

Minor drug offenders fill your prisons
You don't even flinch
All our taxes paying for your wars
Against the new non-rich,
Minor drug offenders fill your prisons
You don't even flinch
All our taxes paying for your wars
Against the new non-rich,

I buy my crack, my smack, my bitch,
Right here in Hollywood,

The percentage of Americans in the prison system
Prison system, has doubled since 1985,

They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison, (for you and me to live in)
Another prison system,
Another prison system,
Another prison system. (for you and me to live in)
For you and I, for you and I , for you and I.

They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison,
For you and me,
Oh baby, you and me.

All research and successful drug policy show
That treatment should be increased,
And law enforcement decreased,
While abolishing mandatory minimum sentences,
All research and successful drug policy show
That treatment should be increased,
And law enforcement decreased,
While abolishing mandatory minimum sentences.

Utilizing drugs to pay for secret wars around the world,
Drugs are now your global policy,
Now you police the globe,

I buy my crack, my smack, my bitch,
Right here in Hollywood,

Drug money is used to rig elections,
And train brutal corporate sponsored
Dictators around the world.

They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison,
They're trying to build a prison, (for you and me to live in)
Another prison system,
Another prison system,
Another prison system. (for you and me to live in)

They're trying to build a prison,
For you and me,
Oh baby, you and me.

TEA PARTY LYRICS

"The Bazaar"

silence swimming in a pool of dreams
beneath its depths the forgotten streams
above, the city of the evening star
behind its walls, the grand bazaar
as she walks through its endless maze
cursing those who mistrust her ways
please my friend no matter what she sees
tell my lover come back to me

doorways spilling out their sombre light
casting shadows that will raid the night
along the alleys of her ruling fears
walk the visions that will cause her tears
lying still as she wills her glance
through the eyes of a charmers trance
please my friend no matter what she sees
tell my lover come back to me

and on the walls
shadows play
twilight souls
anguished ways
lost adrift
severed seas
i await you
come to me

Welcome to the machine - Pink Floyd

Welcome my son,
Welcome to the machine.
Where have you been ?
It's alright,
We know where you've been.
You've been in the pipeline,
Filling in time.
Provided with toys and 'Scouting for Boys'.
You bought a guitar, To punish your ma,
And you didn't like school,
And you know you're nobody's fool.
So welcome to the machine.

Welcome my son,
Welcome to the machine.
What did you dream ? It's alright,
We told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star,
He played a mean guitar.
He always ate in the steak bar.
He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the machine.

SNOW PATROL
"Chasing Cars"

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

"If Everyone Cared" Nickelback

From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive

[Chorus:]
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

And I'm singing

Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
Singing Amen, I, I'm alive
(I'm alive)

[Chorus x2]

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
When nobody died...

[Chorus]

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody died
We'd see the day when nobody died

She came from Providence,
the one in Rhode Island
Where the old world shadows hang
heavy in the air
She packed her hopes and dreams
like a refugee
Just as her father came across the sea
She heard about a place people were smilin'
They spoke about the red man's way,
and how they loved the land
And they came from everywhere
to the Great Divide
Seeking a place to stand
or a place to hide

Down in the crowded bars,
out for a good time,
Can't wait to tell you all,
what it's like up there
And they called it paradise
I don't know why
Somebody laid the mountains low
while the town got high

Then the chilly winds blew down
Across the desert
through the canyons of the coast, to
the Malibu
Where the pretty people play,
hungry for power
to light their neon way
and give them things to do

Some rich men came and raped the land,
Nobody caught 'em
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus,
people bought 'em
And they called it paradise
The place to be
They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

You can leave it all behind
and sail to Lahaina
just like the missionaries did, so many years ago
They even brought a neon sign: "Jesus is coming"
Brought the white man's burden down
Brought the white man's reign

Who will provide the grand design?
What is yours and what is mine?
'Cause there is no more new frontier
We have got to make it here

We satisfy our endless needs and
justify our bloody deeds,
in the name of destiny and the name of God

And you can see them there,
On Sunday morning
They stand up and sing about
what it's like up there
They call it paradise
I don't know why
You call someplace paradise,
kiss it goodbye

Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb' from the wall...

Gets me every time.

Comfortably Numb (Gilmour, Waters) 6:49

Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?
Come on, now,
I hear you're feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again.
Relax.
I'll need some information first.
Just the basic facts.
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain you would not understand
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

O.K.
Just a little pinprick.
There'll be no more aaaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick.
Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working, good.
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on it's time to go.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

It somehow seems very apt in this day and age.

Too many puppies by Primus:

Too many puppies are being shot in the dark.
Too many puppies are trained not to bark.
At the sight of blood that must be spilled
so that we may maintain our oil fields.
Too many puppies
Too many puppies are taught to heal.
Too many puppies are trained to kill.
On the command of men wearing money belts
that buy mistresses sleek animal pelts.
Too many puppies.
Too many puppies with guns in their hands.
Too many puppies in foreign lands.
Are dressed up sharp in suits of green and
Placed upon the war machine.
Too many puppies are just like me.
Too many puppies are afraid to see.
The visions of the past brought to life again,
Too many puppies, too many dead men.

"When a Child is Born" by Johnny Mathis

A ray of hope flickers 'cross the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born

A silent wish sails the seven seas
The wind of change whispers in the trees
And the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn
This comes to pass when a child is born

A rosy hue settles all around
You get to feel your on solid ground
For a spell or two no one seems forlorn
This comes to pass when a child is born

It's just a dream, an illusion now
It must come true, someday soon, somehow
All across the land dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born

This song is usually seen as a Christmas record; you'll find it on most Christmas albums, but really the song is much, much more than that.

Some great songs here so far, especially Floyd & Nickelback - love em:) I also like The Levellers, here's a few...

Sell Out
The year was 1991, it seems that freedom's dead and gone
The power of the rich is held by few
You keep the young ones paralyzed, educated by your lies
Keep the old ones happy with the news
Tell the singer not to song his song
Tell the poet that she's wrong
And in the courts you'll win the case with lies
Cos you sold them down the river-o

(CHORUS)
Do I belong to some ancient race
I like to walk in ancient places
These are things that I can understand
I don't believe in your modern way
Don't care about the things you say
Your policies have failed the test of time
Cos you sold them down the river-o

Now in a land not far away, there's men in prison because they say
The colour of your skin is not a question
But did you rally to their side
No, you sat back and let them die
I don't know how you get to sleep at night
CHORUS
Your money market goes round and round
The pound goes up, the dollar goes down
You need the power for your new towns
Cos you get scared when the night comes down
Won't you tell me where it is that we are bound
CHORUS


Blind Faith
A hollow heart and empty head make the streets run red
A careless desire leaves a child a future of fire
But you don't care, how could you care

(CHORUS)
Blind Faith It'll be okay, everybody tells you so
Don't look it'll go away, everybody tells you so
Blind Faith It'll be okay. everbody telling you so
Don't look it'll go away, everybody tells you so

You lead your nation with a sword pressed to its back
you mark the last page of history in black
but you don't care, how could you care
CHORUS
Why must you poison?
You're taking it all away
Why must you rape
The future this way

Now you've made your Babylon, what next?
Should only take you 7 days to fix the mess
You don't care, how could you care

Blind Faith It'll be okay, everybody tells you so
Don't look it'll go away, everybody tells you so
Blind Faith It'll be okay, everbody telling you so


I Have No Answers
Tell me now I want the answers for
Poverty, starvation, bloodshed & war
And all the blood that's run before
Why can't politician's fight their own war?
I have no answers for the problems caused by government and law
The only solution is to rearrange
From the bottom to the top this system must change

Tell me the answers to all the questions I ask you
I've got to know right now
You keep the power with you, no questions asked
But I'm demanding answers now
For the present and for the past

I tell you it's dis-disinformation that keeps us ll in our station
You try to tell me that I'm confused
When I tell you that we're all used

"Love of The Common People" by Paul Young

Living on free food tickets
water in the milk from a hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
what can you do?
Tears from your little sister crying
Because she doesn't have a dress without a patch for the party to go

Oh
but you know she'll get by.
Because she's living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man.
Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love her just as much as she can and she can.

It's a good thing you don't have busfare

It would fall through the hole in your pocket
And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground.
You gotta walk into town to find a job.
Trying to keep your hands warm when the hole in your shoe
Let's the snow come through and it chills you to the bone

So boy
you better go home where it's warm.
Where you can live in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man.
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love you just as much as she can and she can.

Living on a dream ain't easy
but the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
you have to take 'em in stride
for family pride.
You know that faith is your foundation
And with a whole lot of love and warm conversation
But don't forget to pray it's making it strong where you belong.

And we're living on the love of the common people . . .
Yes
we're living of the love of the common people . . .

Ian Brown My Star (NWO gets a mention)

Space exploration for nuclear stations
NASA corrupters, jewelled abductors
Space exploration, excursion to the stars
On a military mission on a military mission to Mars
I`ll see you in my star
I`ll see you in my star

Solar system bases, the new world order
Lust for space dust, forming galaxy borders
Never seeking new life, only planning war
Sending satellites at new height, satellites to destroy
I`ll see you in my star
I`ll see you in mys tar

Space exploration for nuclear stations
Nasa corrupters, jewelled abductors
Space exploration, excursion to the stars
On a military mission on a military mission to Mars
To boldly go where no man`s ever been before
Astronauts the new conquistadores
See you in my star
I`ll see you in my star

another of ian's, FEAR

"Hurt Me Soul" - Lupe Fiasco (2006)

Now I ain't tryna be the greatest
I used to hate hip-hop... yup, because the women degraded
But Too $hort made me laugh, like a hypocrite I played it
A hypocrite I stated, though I only recited half
Omittin the word "bitch," cursin I wouldn't say it
Me and dog couldn't relate, til a bitch I dated
Forgive my favorite word for hers and hers alike
But I learnt it from a song I heard and sorta liked
Yeah, for the icin, glamorized drug dealin was appealin
But the block club kept it from in front of our buildin
Gangsta rap-based filmings became the buildin blocks
For children with leakin ceilings catchin drippins with pots
Coupled with compositions from Pac, Nas's "It Was Written"
In the mix with my realities and feelings
Living conditions, religion, ignorant wisdom and artistic vision
I began to jot, tap the world and listen, it drop

My mom can't feed me, my boyfriend beats me
I have sex for money, the hood don't love me
The cops wanna kill me, this nonsense built me
And I got noooo place to gooo
They bomb my village, they call us killers
Took me off they welfare, can't afford they health care
My teacher won't teach me, my master beats me
And it huuurts meee soooul

I had a ghetto boy bop, a Jay-Z boycott
'Cause he said that he never prayed to God, he prayed to Gotti
I'm thinkin godly, God guard me from the ungodly
But by my 30th watchin of "Streets is Watchin"
I was back to givin props again and that was botherin
By this uncomfortable as a untouchable touchin you
The theme songs that niggas hustle to seem wrong but these songs was comin true
And it was all becoming cool
I found a condom on the ground that Johns would cum into and thought
What constitutes a prostitute is the pursuit of profit then they drop it
The homie in a suit pat her on the butt, then rock it
It seems I was seein the same scene adopted
Prevalent in different things with the witnesses indifferent to stop it
They said don't knock it, mind ya business
His business isn't mine and that nigga pimpin got it

They took my daughter, we ain't got no water
I can't get hired, they cross on fire
We all got suspended, I just got sentenced
So I got noooo place to gooo
They threw down my gang sign, I ain't got no hang time
They talk about my sneakers, poisoned our leader
My father ain't seen me, turn off my TV
'Cause it huuurts meee soooul

So through the Grim Reaper sickle sharpening
Macintosh marketing
Oil field augering
Brazilian adolescent disarmament
Israeli occupation
Islamic martyrdom, precise
Yeah, laser guided targeting
Oil for food, water, and terrorist organization harborin
Sand camouflage army men
CCF sponsorin, world conquerin, telephone monitorin
Louis Vuitton modelin, pornographic actress honorin
String theory ponderin, bullimic vomitin
Catholic priest fondlin, pre-emptive bombin and Osama ain't no bombin them
They breakin in my car again, deforestation and overloggin and
Hennessy and Hypnotic swallowin, hydroponic coughin and
All the world's ills, sittin on chrome 24-inch wheels, like that

They say I'm infected, this is why I injected
I had it aborted, we got deported
My laptop got spyware, they say that I can't lie here
But I got noooo place to gooo
I can't stop eatin, my best friend's leavin
My pastor touched me, I love this country
I lost my earpiece, I hope y'all hear me
'Cause it huuurts meee soooul

"What's up" Four Non Blondes



Twenty - five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
And I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream at the top of my lungs
What's going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?
Ooh, ooh ooh
And I try, oh my god do I try
I try all the time, in this institution
And I pray, oh my god do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution
And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream at the top of my lungs
What's going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?
Twenty - five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

One of my all time favorites.


Wish You Were Here Lyrics - by Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

OK, this is not a song but I love it anyway:p

For those of you familiar with the late, great Bill Hicks (who David Quotes often) this is the finale to his Revelations routine.




The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it is real because that is how powerful our minds are.

It goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly coloured and it’s very loud and it’s fun… for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, “is this real or is it just a ride?”

And other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say “Hey, don’t be afraid, ever. This is just a ride.”

And we………. KILL those people.

“Shut him up. We have a lot invested in this ride. SHUT HIM UP!”
“Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my bank account, and my beautiful family. This has to be real.”

It’s just a ride!

But we always kill those good guys who try to tell us that. You ever notice that? And we let the demons run amok.

But it doesn’t matter because we can change it any time we want.
It’s only a choice.
No effort, no work, no job, no saving of money.
A choice, right now…. Between love and fear.

The eyes of fear want us to put bigger locks on our doors, buy guns and lock ourselves away.

The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here’s what we can do to change the world right now to a better ride.

Take all that money we spend on weapons and defence each year.
Instead use it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world....which it would,
many times over… no human being excluded
and then we can explore space… together…. both inner and outer… forever…. in peace.

I love electronic music (I am a techno artist :) ). One of my favourite tunes is "Are We Here?" by Orbital.

These are the words spoken (paraphrased) in "Are We Here?" (album version) by Orbital -

"Are we unique?, are we something utterly special in the universe? or are we an example of many many civilisations that have emerged, many many different lifeforms?."

"What does god say?"

"The prodigal son is alive and well and living in the front bedroom"

"we never see him, he treats his home like a hotel"

"You just can't speak to him"

"He's a disgusting long haired work-shy, dirty layabout who ought to be in the bloody army!"

What does god say?."

:cool:

Taken from Orbital album - "Snivelisation"

Note the radio version did not have most of these lyrics (wonder why?.;) )

The video for the radio version is here -

Orbital - are we here? video

I'm not sure if a video was made for the full version.

By the way their album "Snivelisation" woke me up when it was released!.

"Where Is The Love?" by Black Eyed Peas and "What's Going On?" by Marvin Gaye........

What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin'
in
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love, the love, the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead of spreading love we're spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found
Now ask yourself

Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love?

********

Mother, mother, there's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother, there's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today, hey

Father, father, we don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer, for only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today, oh

Picket lines - sister - and picket signs - sister
Don't punish me - sister - with brutality - sister
Talk to me - sister - so you can see - sister
Oh, what's goin' on - what's goin' on, what's goin' on - what's goin' on
Heah, what's goin' on - what's goin' on, oh, what's goin' on - what's goin' on


Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply 'cause our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today, oh oh oh

Picket lines - brother - and picket signs - brother
Don't punish me - brother - with brutality - brother
Come on, talk to me - brother - so you can see - brother
Now what's goin' on - what's goin' on, yeah, what's goin' on - what's goin' on
Tell me what's goin' on - what's goin' on,
I'll tell you now what's goin' on - what's goin' on

Severed by Mudvayne
And we hide behind,
Lies, anger, Hate
They shoo love away,
Build shells of ourselves outside,
It shelters body from cold reigns of reality,

Come on, STEP OUT, of your rind,
Assemble strength, focus, and release..

And run to me you can never look back to the visions from the
past they fade and wilt in time,
You've got to just trust me to hold your hand through,
Then I turn and walk away,

Eclipse you,
Bleed you, strip you of your states of ain soph aur
Eclipse you,
I spit up on my plate, push everything away, from me

And we sever all ties,
It creates disruption midst circle of friends,
I become the sacrifice,
Spare your life and leave me to my misery,

GET OFF THE CROSS, and save yourself, RUN AWAY YOU'LL BE O.K.

Run now get away from me if I can get my grip
I'll pull you down into the hell I call my head, you'll never get away
I sit down in my ugly place and build walls out of fragments from my
past of all the people that I needed and loved that walked away,

You've got to just trust me to hold your hand through
Then I'll turn and walk away

I walk under clouds of gray,
Sphere of storms in my head,
I'm trapped again in endless rain

I divorce the thoughts of you in love with me,
I divorce your innocence and my guilt,
I divorce the lying sellout confidence,
I'm divorcing every mother fuckin' thing
I divorce the love bled meaningless,
I divorce the makeshift harmony,
I divorce the taunting acts of violence,
I divorce the pastime of jealousy,
I divorce control,
I divorce the faith,
I divorce the virtue,
I divorce the rain,
I divorce the excuse,
I divorce the greed,
I divorce the need,
I divorce iniquity in this mother fuckin' bullshit life,
Just want it all to go away,
Just want to run away to die, take it, myself, my life
Text book fucking mental, off me and pitch me in a hole
In this mother fuckin bullshit life, in this fucking bullshit life

I'll always be your shadow,
And veil your eyes from states of ain soph aur,
I can't be the hero anymore,
I spit up on my plate and then I turn and walk away,
I spit up on my plate and I disrupt the family,
I spit up on my plate as I sever the entity,
And I feel your warm sun on my face
Separate.. Separate.. Separate.. SEPARATE!

Eclipse you
And bleed you strip you of your states of ain soph aur,
I need you
It's always been this way, I push it all away,
From me

Banana Panckaes by Jack Johnson

do we really need to pay attention to the alarm?
wake up slow, mmm mmm wake up slow
But baby You hardly even notice
when I try to show you

And we can pretend it all the time
Cant you see that its just raining

rain all day
and i really really really don't mind
Can't you see, can't you see,

Dignity- by deacon Blue

Theres a man I meet walks up our street
He's a worker for the council
Has been twenty years
And he takes no lip off nobody
And litter off the gutter
Puts it in a bag
And never seems to mutter
And he packs his lunch in a sunblest bag
The children call him bogie
He never lets on
But I know cause he once told me
He let me know a secret about the money in his kitty
Hes gonna buy a dinghy
Gonna call her dignity
"And Ill sail her up the west coast
Through villages and towns
Ill be on my holidays
They'll be doing their rounds
They'll ask me how I got her I'll say 'I saved my money'
They'll say 'isnt she pretty' that ship called dignity"
And I'm telling this story
In a faraway scene
Sipping down raki
And reading Maynard Keynes
And I'm thinking about home and all that means
And a place in the winter for dignity
"And I'll sail her up the west coast
Through villages and towns
I'll be on my holidays
They'll be doing their rounds
They'll ask me how I got her I'll say 'I saved my money'
They'll say 'isnt she pretty' that ship called dignity"
And I'm thinking about home
And I'm thinking about faith
And I'm thinking about work
And I'm thinking about how good it would be
To be here some day
On a ship called dignity
A ship called dignity
That ship

we shall not be moved
(Pete Seeger)

We shall not, we shall not be moved, (2x)
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
We shall not be moved

We're young and old together, we shall not be moved, (2x)
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
We shall not be moved

CHORUS

We're women and men together, we shall not be moved, (2x)
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
We shall not be moved

CHORUS

here's the city and country together, we shall not be moved, (2x)
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
We shall not be moved

We're black and white together we shall not be moved, (2x)
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
We shall not be moved

yes, straight and gay together we shall not be moved, (2x)
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
We shall not be moved

well, it's no nukes is good nukes we shall not be moved, (2x)
Just like a tree that's planted by the water

Working Class Hero by John Lennon (amazing)

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 fucking 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 fucking 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.

Can't let this go by without a few lines from The Dead ....... excerpt from the song Ripple off the album American Beauty ..

------------------------------------------------
"Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of man

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone"

Working Class Hero by John Lennon (amazing)

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 fucking 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 fucking 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.

That's a good one. Our Dave quotes that in "I am Me- I am Free"

And they still reckon Lennon was killed by a lone nutter? I don't think so!

Parabola

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,
We are Choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside...
This holy reality, this holy experience. Choosing to be here in...

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal all this pain is an illusion.

Alive

This holy reality, in this holy experience. Choosing to be here in...

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal all this pain is an illusion...
Of what it means to be alive

Swirling round with this familiar parable.
Spinning, weaving round each new experience.
Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this
chance to be alive and breathing
chance to be alive and breathing.

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. Remember. we are eternal.
all this pain is an illusion.

Lateralus

Black then white are all i see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see.
as below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn beyond the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Black then white are all i see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see there is so much more and
beckons me to look thru to these infinite possibilities.
as below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition leaving opportunities behind.
Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
Reaching out to embrace the random.
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

I embrace my desire to
I embrace my desire to
feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow
to feel inspired to fathom the power, to witness the beauty,
to bathe in the fountain,
to swing on the spiral
to swing on the spiral
to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

With my feet upon the ground I move myeslf between the sounds and open wide to suck it in.
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out. I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
Spiral out. Keep going.
Spiral out. Keep going.
Spiral out. Keep going.
Spiral out. Keep going.
Spiral out. Keep going.

Copy and Paste my dear copy and paste.

DROPKICK MURPHYS - "The Green Fields Of France" [Originally by Eric Bogle]

oh how do you do, young willy mcbride
do you mind if i sit here down by your graveside
and rest for a while in the warm summer sun
i've been walking all day, and im nearly done
and i see by your gravestone you were only nineteen
when you joined the great fallen in 1916
well i hope you died quick
and i hope you died clean
oh willy mcbride, was is it slow and obscene

[Chorus]
did they beat the drums slowly
did they play the fife lowly
did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
did the band play the last post and chorus
did the pipes play the flowers of the forest

and did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind
in some loyal heart is your memory enshrined
and though you died back in 1916
to that loyal heart you're forever nineteen
or are you a stranger without even a name
forever enshrined behind some old glass pane
in an old photograph torn, tattered, and stained
and faded to yellow in a brown leather frame

[Chorus]
did they beat the drums slowly
did they play the fife lowly
did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
did the band play the last post and chorus
did the pipes play the flowers of the forest

the sun shining down on these green fields of france
the warm wind blows gently and the red poppies dance
the trenches have vanished long under the plow
no gas, no barbed wire, no guns firing now
but here in this graveyard that's still no mans land
the countless white crosses in mute witness stand
till' man's blind indifference to his fellow man
and a whole generation were butchered and damned

[Chorus]
did they beat the drums slowly
did they play the fife lowly
did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
did the band play the last post and chorus
did the pipes play the flowers of the forest

and i can't help but wonder oh willy mcbride
do all those who lie here know why they died
did you really believe them when they told you the cause
did you really believe that this war would end wars
well the suffering, the sorrow, the glory, the shame
the killing and dying it was all done in vain
oh willy mcbride it all happened again
and again, and again, and again, and again

[Chorus]
did they beat the drums slowly
did they play the fife lowly
did they sound the death march as they lowered you down
did the band play the last post and chorus
did the pipes play the flowers of the forest

Beloved

Sweet Harmony

Is it right or wrong
Try to find a place
We can all belong?
Be as one
Try to get on by
If we unify
We should really try...
All this time
Spinning round and round
Made the same mistakes
That we've always found
Surely now
We culd move along
Make a better world?
No it can't be wrong
Let's come together
Right now
Oh yeah
In sweet harmony
Time is running out
Let there be no doubt
We should sort things out
If we care
Like we say we do
Not just empty words
For a week or two
Make the world
Your priority
Try to live your life
Ecologically
Play a part
In a greater scheme
Try to live the dream
On a wider scene
Let's come together
Right now
Oh yeah
In sweet harmony

i am all i am

Hi all,
Love lyrics from Metallica 'Nothing Else Matters' to John Lennon 'Imagine'. To many to list. Here are two of my own. I hope you like them.

DOGMA

DON'T TRY TO CONVINCE US,
OF YOUR FALSE IDEAL,
THERE ARE NO SEPERATE COLOURS,
YOUR DOGMA DOESN'T HEAL.

I WASN'T BORN TO WORK FOR YOU,
DON'T SELL ME YOUR IDEAL,
MY EXPERIENCE IS THE CLUE,
YOUR DOGMA DOESN'T HEAL.

I WASN'T BORN A SINNER,
YOUR RELIGION IS A SPIEL,
YOU SAY A LOSER NEEDS A WINNER,
YOUR DOGMA DOESN'T HEAL.

I HOPE ONE DAY TO HOLD YOUR HAND,
AND WATCH THE JOY ON YOUR FACE,
WHEN THE WORLD WILL UNDERSTAND,
WE ALL BELONG TO THE HUMAN RACE.



THE LOVER

THE WORDS I USE DESCRIBE ME,
WHEN MY HEART HAS OVERFLOWN,
THEY'RE FASHIONED POSITIVELY,
FROM MY MOUTH MY LOVE IS BLOWN,
AND MY WORDS ARE ALWAYS KNOWN,
FOR WHEN YOU LISTEN WITH YOUR HEART,
YOU'VE FOUND THE LOVERS ART.

MY HEART IS IN MY WORD,
IT GIFTS MY LOVE TO YOU,
A MESSAGE TO BE HEARD,
OF LOVE COMPLETELY TRUE,
AND MY WORDS WILL BRING THE NEW,
DANCING DOWN THROUGH TIME,
TO GIVE THE LOVERS RHYME.

THE WORD TO USE IS LOVE,
FOR ALL MAGICAL CREATIONS,
YOU'LL LEARN TO FLY ABOVE,
AND REACH NEW DESTINATIONS,
'CAUSE YOUR WORDS ARE COMBINATIONS,
OF ALL YOU CHOOSE TO BE,
TO SET YOUR LOVER FREE.

USING THE WORD EVERY DAY,
WILL SHOW YOUR HEARTS INTENT,
AND LOVE WILL LEAD THE WAY,
TO SHOW IT'S WHAT YOU MEANT,
FOR YOUR WORDS ARE YOUR LOVE SENT,
LEADING PEOPLE CLEAR,
TO SHOW YOUR LOVER'S HERE.

With LOVE.
