Chromium - The Church

Silver needles

Golden eagles

Frightened faces

Basket cases

Jags and riches

Queens and witches

Electric mantras

And tight-fitting dreams

Never been so high

Never been so low

Never been so high

Gilded flowers

Long-lost hours

Morning programs

With fake suntans

Meet a maniac in the cul-de-sac

Otherwise it's this ennui

Chromium platin'

All this waiting brings me down

Suffocatin'

All those colors bring me around

Broken records

Faded labels

Songs to sing to

When you were young

A tattooed pierced arm

Fresh and perfumed

Switch your prison

Fly away

And jewels on your fingers

Tears in your dresses

Fabulous mansions

And damp little rooms

This one will shrink me

This one will grow me

Cue me to sleep

And reality looms

It was supposed to be so easy ~ The Streets

It was supposed to be so easy

Just take back the DVD, withdraw that extra money

Tell mum I wouldn't be back for tea, then grab my savings and hurry

So first to get the film back in time, to avoid that big fine

I had to do a fast hill climb, but a faster decline

But I flew a bit quick, arms like a lunatic

Had to stop for a few ticks, I started feeling sick

Got to the video shop in a state, but chuffed it wouldn't be late

Only when he flicked open the case, I'd left the disc at my place

Today I've achieved absolutely nowt

In just being out of the house, I've lost out

If I wanted to end up with more now

I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

So I failed on the DVD, but I still had to get the money

Tell mum I couldn't make tea, get the saving and then hurry

Rushing to the cash machine, still a bit mashed and lean

Then of course a mandatory car, drives by and splashes me

Get there the queue's outrageous, ladies taking ages

My rage is blowing gauges, how longs it take to validate your wages?

At last my turn comes, press the 50 squid button

Insufficient funds

Today I've achieved absolutely nowt

In just being out of the house, I've lost out

If I wanted to end up with more now

I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

So I failed on the DVD, couldn't withdraw any money

But I still had to call mum, get the savings and hurry

So to call mum so that, I could tell her I cant go and that

At least I remembered my phone man, I didn't know her number offhand

Where's my phone have I got it, Oh this is a crock of s**t

I lost the f**king thing, oh here it is in my pocket

But the batteries nearly flat, gotta call quick snap

Aww s**t, the battery is flat

Today I've achieved absolutely nowt

In just being out of the house, I've lost out

If I wanted to end up with more now

I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

So Ive failed on the DVD, couldnt withdraw any money

Or call mum about tea, I'll have to get the savings and hurry

But where was the money, I knew I'd left it on the

Side, next to the telly, this is not even funny

I left it in the living room, ready to pick up as soon

As I passed through, on the way out to the rendevous

So the shoebox full of money, just disappearing from me

Is not what I call funny, a grand dont come for free

Today I've achieved absolutely nowt

In just being out of the house, I've lost out

If I wanted to end up with more now

I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

Unsatisfied~The Replacements

Look me in the eye

Then, tell me that I'm satisfied

Was you satisfied?

Look me in the eye

Then, tell me that I'm satisfied

Hey, are you satisfied?

And it goes so slowly on

Everything I've ever wanted

Tell me what's wrong

Look me in the eye

And tell me that I'm satisfied

Were you satisfied?

Look me in the eye

Then, tell me I'm satisfied

And now are you satisfied?

Everything goes

Well, anything goes all of the time

Everything you dream of

Is right in front of you

And everything is a lie (or) And liberty is a lie

Look me in the eye

And tell me that I'm satisfed

Look me in the eye

Unsatisfied

I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied

I'm so dissatisfied

I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied

I'm so unsatisfied

Well, I'm-a

I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied

I'm so dissatis,dissattis...

I'm so

Immortality ~ Pearl Jam

Vacate is the word

vengeance has no place on me or her

Cannot find the comfort in this world

Artificial tear

vessel stabbed - next up, volunteers

Vulnerable,

wisdom can't adhere

A truant finds home

and a wish to hold on

But there's a trapdoor in the sun...

Immortality...

As privileged as a whore

victims in demand for public show

Swept out through the cracks beneath the door

"Holier than thou" how?

Surrendered - executed anyhow

Scrawl dissolved,

cigar box on the floor

A truant finds home

and a wish to hold on too

He saw the trapdoor in the sun...

Immortality...

I cannot stop the thought

I'm running in the dark

Coming up a "which way?" sign

all good truants must decide

Oh, stripped and sold, mom

auctioned forearm

And whiskers in the sink

Truants move on

cannot stay long

Some die just to live...

:bow: :puppyeyes: :bow:

Camping Next to Water ~ Badly Drawn Boy

Camping next to water

Fish infested slaughter

I feed the fishes into me

It's misty within reason

I'm hoping I don't freeze here

I fuel the fire, I feed its glow

But these's no use in feeling

All the things I'm feeling

There's no one here to feel with me

The second day is easier

Though it may be breezier

And the snow is falling down

But as the fire smoulders

I never will grow older

Because I drink from Waterfalls

The stars above shine on me

I beckon them to fall on me

I'll catch and save them in a jar

My feet a mass of blisters

Collecting frost on whiskers

As I taste the moring dew

I think my mind is clearer now

I want you to be nearer now

I'm ready to come back to you

Cause there's no use in feeling

All the things I'm feeling

There's no one here to feel with me

Another keen social commentary from everyone's favourite Brummie garage poet.

"The Irony of It All" - The Streets

[Drinker]

Hello, Hello

My name's Terry and I'm a law-abider

There's nothing I like more than getting fired up on beer

And when the weekend's here

I exercise my right to get paralytic and fight

Good bloke fairly

But I get well leery when geezers look at me funny

Bounce 'em round like bunnies

I'm likely to cause mischief

Good clean grief you must believe

And I ain't no thief, law-abiding and all, all legal

And who cares about my liver when it feels good?

What you need is some real manhood

Rasher, Rasher, burning cash up

Putting people's backs up

Public disorder, I'll give you public disorder

I down eight pints and run all over the place

Spit in the face of an officer

See if that bothers ya

'Cause I never broke a law in my life

Some day I'm gonna settle down with a wife

Come on lads let's have another fight

[Marijuana Smoker]

Um, Hello

My name's Tim and I'm a criminal

In the eyes of society I need to be in jail

For the choice of herbs I inhale

This ain't no wholesale operation

Just a few eighths and some Playstation's my vocation

I pose a threat to the nation

And down at the station the police hold no patience

Let's talk space and time

I like to get deep sometimes

And think about Einstein and Carl Jung

And old Kung Fu movies I like to see

Pass the hydrator please

Yeah, I'm floating on thin air

Going to Amsterdam in the New Year - top gear there

'Cause I take pride in my hobby

Home-made bongs using my engineering degree

"Dear leaders, please legalize weed for these reasons."

[Drinker]

Like I was saying to him

I told him, "F*** with me and you won't live."

So I smacked him in the head and downed another Carling

Bada Bada Bing

For the lad's like, mad fight

His face a sad sight, Vodka and Snake Bite

Going on like a right geez

He's a t***!

Shouldn't have looked at me like that

Anyway, I'm an upstanding citizen

If a war came along I'd be on the front line with 'em

Can't stand crime either, them hooligans on heroin

Drugs and criminals

Those thugs are the pinnacle of the downfall of society

I've got all the anger pent up inside of me

[Marijuana Smoker]

You know, I don't see why I should be the criminal

How can something with no recorded fatalities be illegal?

And how many deaths are there per year from alcohol?

I just completed Gran Turismo on the hardest setting

We pose no threat on my setee

Ooh the pizza's here, will someone let him in please?

We didn't order chicken

Not a problem, we'll pick it out

I doubt they meant to mess us about

After all we're all adults, not louts

As I was saying, we're friendly peaceful people

We're not the ones out there causing trouble

We just sit in this hazy bubble with our quarters

Discussing how beautiful Gail Porter is

MTV, BBC 2, Channel 4 is on until six in the morning

Then at six in the morning the sun dawns and it's my bedtime

[Drinker]

Causing trouble?!

Your stinking rabble boys

Saying I'm the lad who's spoiling it

You're on drugs

It really bugs me when people try and tell me I'm a thug

Just for getting drunk

I like getting drunk

'Cause I'm an upstanding citizen

If a war came along I'd be on the front line with 'em

[Marijuana Smoker]

Now Terry, you're repeating yourself

But that's okay, drunk people can't help that

A chemical reaction happening inside your brain causes you to forget what you're saying

[Drinker]

What?

I know exactly what I'm saying

I'm perfectly sane

You stinking student lame-o

Go get a job and stop robbing us of our taxes

[Marijuana Smoker]

Um, well actually according to research

Government funding for further education pales in insignificance

When compared to how much they spend on repairing leery drunk people at the weekend

In casualty wards all over the land

[Drinker]

Why you cheeky little swine, come here!

I'm gonna batter ya!

Come here!

Sing about Love ~ Chumbawamba

I don't want to sing about anger and hate

I don't want to sing about fear and defeat

I don't want to sing about the things I always sing about

I wish I could sing about love

I don't want to sing about war and greed

I don't want to sing about those we can't feed

I don't want to sing about the things I always sing about

I wish I could sing about love

I don't want to sing about suffering and pain

I don't want to sing for another campaign

I don't want to sing about the things I always sing about

I wish I could sing about love

I don't want to sing about rights and wrongs

I don't want to sing all the same old songs

But I'll sing them, and sing them, ‘til there's no need to sing them

And then I can sing about love.

:bow:

Though I'm not a big U2 fan, I think this is an exceptional love song.

"Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses"

You're dangerous 'cause you're honest

You're dangerous, you don't know what you want

Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot

For any spirit to haunt

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey

You're an accident waiting to happen

You're a piece of glass left in a beach

Well you tell me things I know you're not supposed to

Then you leave me just out of reach

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna drown in your blue sea

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee

Well you stole it 'cause I needed the cash

And you killed it 'cause I wanted revenge

Well you lied to me 'cause I asked you to

Baby, can we still be friends

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna drown in your blue sea

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee

Oh, the deeper I spin

Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin

Took a drive in the dirty rain

To a place where the wind calls your name

Under the trees the river laughing at you and me

Hallelujah, heavens white rose

The doors you open

I just can't close

Don't turn around, don't turn around again

Don't turn around, your gypsy heart

Don't turn around, don't turn around again

Don't turn around, and don't look back

Come on now love, don't you look back

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna drown in your blue sea

Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses

Who's gonna take the place of me

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna tame the heart of thee

Sandman ~ America

Ain't it foggy outside

All the planes have been grounded

Ain't the fire inside?

Let's all go stand around it

Funny, I've been there

And you've been here

And we ain't had no time to drink that beer

'Cause I understand you've been running from the man

That goes by the name of the Sandman

He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye

Of a hurricane that's abandoned

Ain't the years gone by fast

I suppose you have missed them

Oh, I almost forgot to ask

Did you hear of my enlistment?

Funny, I've been there

And you've been here

And we ain't had no time to drink that beer

'Cause I understand you've been running from the man

That goes by the name of the Sandman

He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye

Of a hurricane that's abandoned

I understand you've been running from the man

That goes by the name of the Sandman

He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye

Of a hurricane that's abandoned

I understand you've been running from the man

That goes by the name of the Sandman

He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye

Of a hurricane that's abandoned

I understand you've been running from the man

That goes by the name of the Sandman

He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye

Of a hurricane that's abandoned

We saw a band tonight that did this song...they did a great job with the harmony....Good tune.

Sway -- The Rolling Stones

Did you ever wake up to find

A day that broke up your mind

Destroyed your notion of circular time

It's just that demon life has got you in its sway

It's just that demon life has got you in its sway

Ain't flinging tears out on the dusty ground

For all my friends out on the burial ground

Can't stand the feeling getting so brought down

It's just that demon life has got me in its sway

It's just that demon life has got me in its sway

There must be ways to find out

Love is the way they say is really strutting out

Hey, hey, hey now

One day I woke up to find

Right in the bed next to mine

Someone that broke me up with a corner of her smile, yeah

It's just that demon life has got me in its sway

The Format~The First Single

I can't stand to think about

A heart so big it hurts like hell

Oh my God I gave my best

But for three whole years to end like this

Well do you want to fall apart

I can't stop if you cant start

Do you want to fall apart

I could if you can try to fix what I've undone

Cause I hate what I've become

You know me,

Oh you think you do you, you just dont seem to see

I've been waiting all this time to be

Something I can't define so let's

Cause a scene

Clap our hands and stomp our feet or something

Yeah something

I've just got to get myself over me

I could stand to do without

All the people I have left behind

Whats the point in going around

When it's a straight line baby, a straight line down

So lets make a list of who we need

And its not much, if anything

Lets make a list of who we need

And we'll throw it away cause we dont need anyone

No we dont need anyone

You know me,

Oh you think you do you, you just dont seem to see

I've been waiting all this time to be

Something I can't define so let's

Cause a scene

Clap our hands and stomp our feet or something

Yeah something

I've just got to get myself over me

And I hate what I've become...

You know the night life is just not for me

Cause all you really need are a few good friends

I don't want to go out and be on my own

You know they started something I can't stand

You leave for the city, well count me out

'Cause all this time is wasted on

Well, everything I've done

You know me,

Oh you think you do you, you just dont seem to see

I've been waiting all this time to be

Something I can't define so let's

Cause a scene

Clap our hands and stomp our feet or something

Yeah something

I've just got to get myself over me

You know me,

Oh you think you do you, you just dont seem to see

I've been waiting all this time to be something I can't define

So let's cause a scene

Clap our hands and stomp our feet or something

Yeah something

I've just got to get myself over me, yeh, over me, yeh, over me

PS: MAKE SURE THAT THE VERSION YOU HEAR IS THE VERSION FROM THEIR FIRST ALBUM!!!(Interventions and Lullabies) The opening drum beats are more powerful. Or you could look on Rhapsody for it.

Can't... stop... listening:

Velvet - The Big Pink

Seen it in my head, burning my heart

Seen it in my past, back in my home

Doesn't make sense, see her again

I don't, know

I felt it for some time, ever not at all

Poison in my head, gun love hurts

I'm not looking for love, but it's hard to resist

I don't recall, me and mistakes

She's the only one, that's the best I've had

I found her in a dream, looking for me

This heart's on fire, I'll bring myself

Up to the force, down again

These arms are mine

Don't matter who they hold

So should i maybe, Just leave love alone

You call out my name, for the love you need

Which you won't find in me

These arms are mine

Don't matter who they hold

You're made for me, and i'll leave love alone

you call out my name for the love you need

Which you won't find in me

Seen it in my head, burning my heart

I found her in a dream, looking for me

Doesn't make sense, see her again

I don't, know

I can see the end, of what I've become

A tale of a love, come and gone

But now my love, no promises

I won't go, falling in love

We Looked Like Giants - Death Cab For Cutie

God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime

Remembering when you were mine

In a still suburban town

When every thursday I'd brave those mountain passes

And you'd skip your early classes

And we'd learn how our bodies worked.

God damn the black night with all it's foul temptation

I become what I always hated

When I was with you then

We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact

Fumbling to make contact

As the others slept inside

And together there

In a shroud of frost, the mountain air

Began to pass from every pane of weathered glass

And I held you closer than anyone would ever get

Do you remember the JAMC?

And reading aloud from magazines

I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me

I've never been too good with secrets.

No...

And together there

In a shroud of frost and mountain air

Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass

And I held you closer...

Lesbische Schwarze Behinderte ~ Funny van Dannen

instead of posting the original German lyrics, I did a quick translation also trying to 'americanise' it a bit (since you don't know what 'Obi' and 'Lindenstraße' are)

downside is that now it doesn't rhyme anymore :crazy:

ah well, can't have everything

Men are to blame for everything - Machos, mostly white ones

They are fully responsible for this whole sh*t

They rule this world, they have too much power

They have brought the whole planet to the brink of death

Are there bigger crooks? the answer is 'no'

But Black Disabled Lesbians can suck too

I met one at the Home Depot, she was driving in her wheelchair

She cut the line and paid really cool -

with a $100 bill - she only had ten screws

any normal German wouldn't dare to do that!

The cashier ranted, and everyone agreed:

Black Disabled Lesbians can suck too

Outside on the parking lot she almost drove me over

She didn't say sorry, she screamed 'are you dumb?'

"I'm braking even for men" was written on her shirt

I was so shocked I couldn't think of a reply

I should've yelled "F*ck you!", I thought of it too late

Black Disabled Lesbians can suck too

Of course I'm not a racist, nor a blockhead

Most black disabled lesbians are really very nice

You seem them much too seldom, in no TV show

Not even in soap operas, I don't know why

Does this song go on? The answer is 'no'

but Black Disabled Lesbians can suck too

Leftovers - Jarvis Cocker

I met her in the museum of paleontology

And i make no bones about it

I said if you wish to study dinosaurs,

I know a specimen whose interest is undoubted

Trapped in a body that is failing me

Well, please allow me to be succinct

I wanna love you whilst we both still have flesh upon our bones

Before we both become extinct

That's what i told her: i wanna be your lover

And then i told her twice: i wanna be your lover

Well, he says that he loves you like a sister

Well i guess, i guess that's relative

He says that he wants to make love to you

Well instead of "to", shouldn't that be "with"?

Oh, i told you once: i wanna be your lover

And now i've told you twice: i wanna be your lover

And so i come to you filled with guilt and self-loathing

And i am praying that you could make me good

And so i fall upon your neck just like a vampire

Yeah, like a vampire who faints at the sight of blood

And i told you once: i wanna be your lover

I'm gonna say it again

And then i told you twice: i wanna be your lover

Well this is my cv and i've got no one else to blame

So i will state, state my case, i will state it again

Come and help yourself to leftovers

Got a little surplus love and affection

And getting cuddly, so won't you cuddle me?

I could be your teddy bear... oh yeah

I know i ain't no eligible bachelor

This is no mouthwatering proposition

Make no mistake, you're in big trouble, little lady

If we start a-hugging and a-kissing

And a-kissing, are you listening?

'cause i told you once

And then i told you twice

And now i told you three times

And at the risk of repeating myself

I'm gonna say it again

Yeah

I wanna be your lover

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

I wanna be your lover

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

I wanna be your lover

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

I wanna be your lover

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

I wanna be your lover

I love dis man :bow:

"Non T'Amo Piu" poetry by Carmelo Errico, music by Francesco Paolo Tosti (Performed by Aaron J. Sala)

Ricordi ancora il di che c'incontrammo?

(Do you still remember the day we met?)

Le tue promesse le ricordi ancor?

(Do you still remember the promises you made?)

Folle d'amore io ti seguii,

(Madly in love, I followed you)

ci amammo,

(We were in love with each other)

E accanto a te sognai,

(And next to you I dreamt)

folle d'amor.

(Of love with complete abandon.)

Sognai felice di carezze e baci

(Happily, I dreamt of caresses and kisses)

Una catena dileguante in ciel;

(A chain fading into the heavens;)

Ma le parole tue furon mendaci

(But your words were false)

Perché l'anima tua fatta è di gel.

(Because your heart is made of ice.)

Te ne ricordi ancor?

Don't you remember?)

Te ne ricordi ancor?

Don't you remember?)

Chorus:

Or la mia fede, il desiderio immenso

(Now, my faith, my immense desire)

Il mio sogno d'amor non dei oiu tu

(My dream of love is no longer for you)

I tuoi baci non cerco,

(I do not long for your kisses)

a te non penso

(I do not think of you)

Sogno un altro ideal:

(I dream of another:)

Non t'amo piu,

(I love you no more)

Non t'amo piu!

(I love you no more!)

Nei cari giorni che passamo insieme,

(On those precious days we spent together)

io cosparsi di fiori il tuo sentier.

(I scattered your path with flowers)

Tu fosti del mio cor l'unica speme,

(You were my heart's sole desire)

tu della mente l'unica pensier.

(My mind's only thought)

Tu m'hai cisto pregare, impallidire,

(You watched me pray, growing pale,

piangere tu m'hai visto inanzi a te.

(You stood there and watched me cry)

lo, sol per appagare un tuo desire

(I would have satisfied your every desire)

avrei dato il mio sangue e la ma fè.

(I would have given my life for you.)

Te ne ricordi ancor?

Don't you remember?)

Te ne ricordi ancor?

Don't you remember?)

Red Dress ~ TV on the Radio

Hey Jackboot

F**k your war

Cause I'm fat and in love

and no bombs are falling on me for sure

But I'm scared to death

That I'm living a life not worth dying for

And your plow shear

It's a sword

And its wide arcing swing chops the heads off of many things

Mono crops... Laughter roars

Oh high hilarity

Oh muck bury me

Oh standard bearer carry me burning home from another tour

Go ahead put your Red Dress on

Days of white robes have come and gone,

Come and gone

Oh you rivers, oh you waters run

Come bear witness to the Whore of Babylon!

"Hey Slave" They called

And we caved

We answered

To a new name

Shout it loud, shout it lame

But black face it

You're such a good dancer

Oh you're a star

You're carnival

Jacaranda petals fall

Mix with the blood of the saints

Shot down in the square

Don't track it in on the soles of your shoes

When you're dragged into the back of this car

Go ahead put your Red Dress on

Days of white robes have come and gone,

come and gone

Oh you rivers, oh you waters run

Come bear witness to the Whore of Babylon!

It's a trap

That much is plain

Still,maybe send snapshots

of all your sweet pain

Playing tortuous games

It goes: Lense, light, fame

Read my names on your lips

When the man cracks the whip

And you'll all shake your hips

And you'll all dance to this

Without making a fist

And I know that it sounds mundane

But it's a stone cold shame

How they got you tame

And they got me tame.

So go ahead put your Red Dress on

Days of white robes come and gone,

Come and gone

Oh you rivers, oh you waters run

Come bear witness to the Whore of Babylon!

I'm On Fire - Bruce Springsteen

Hey little girl is your daddy home

Did he go and leave you all alone?

I got a bad desire

Oh, oh, oh, I'm on fire.

Tell me now baby is he good to you

And can do to you the things that I do

Oh no, I can take you higher

Oh, oh, oh I'm on fire.

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby edgy and dull and cut a six inch valley through the middle of my skull

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet

And a freight train running through the middle of my head

Only you, can cool my desire

Oh, oh, oh I'm on fire

Oh, oh, oh I'm on fire

Oh, oh, oh I'm on fire

How to make a seizure sound beautiful

Epilepsy is Dancing - Antony and the Johnsons

Epilepsy is dancing

She’s the Christ now departing

And I’m finding my rhythm

As I twist in the snow

All the metal burned in me

Down the brain of my river

That fire was searching

For a waterway home

I cry “glitter is love!â€

My eyes pinned inside

With green jewels

Hanging like Christmas stars

From a golden vein

As I came to a screaming

Hold me while I’m dreaming

For my fingers are curling

And I cannot breathe

Then I cried in the kitchen

How I’d seen your ghost witching

As a soldering blue line

Between my eyes

Cut me in quadrants

Leave me in the corner

Oh now it’s passing

Oh now I’m dancing

Having Wings ~ Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals

I heard a street singer play a song I knew

It brought me closer to you

I heard a street singer play a song I call my own

It brought me to my childhood home

Did you go back from where you came?

If I get there, will they have my name?

If they don't, I'll only have myself to blame

For all these things, true happiness is having wings

Life is a blurry-eyed, heavy-hearted whirlwind of a storm

Some things just hurt too much to cry

Memories are like shadows the light won't make disappear

I still see you smiling with your eyes

Did you go back from where you came?

If I get there, will they have my name?

If they don't, I'll only have myself to blame

For all these things, true happiness is having wings
