I feel like singing......

Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 11:28 AM

I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
Because at 5 o'clock they take me to the gallows pole.
The sands of time for me are running low.

When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I take a look through the bars at the last sights,
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.

Can it be that there's some sort of error?
Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
It's not easy to stop from screaming,
But words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears fall but why am I crying?
After all I'm not afraid of dying.
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
If there's a God then why has he let me go?

As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul because it's willing to fly away

Mark my words please believe my soul lives on
Please don't worry now that I have gone
I've gone beyond to see the truth

When you know that your time is close at hand,
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion.

Hallowed be Thy name.

    Long fat green, love what you do, so young must be nice
    Roll first class, limousine drool, packed house every night

    Hey rock star, got a cold beer? Sure you don't mind do you?
    Ain't life sweet, party non-stop, 24/7 - cool

    So proud would be your mother
    Anything you want, pick your lover
    From here looks so fine
    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    Live your dream, walk in those shoes, trade with you any time
    Worldwide name, freedom much fame, spinning gold song and rhyme

    So proud would be your mother
    Anything you want, pick your lover
    From here looks so fine
    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    Play, get paid, couple sports cars, sure you done paid your dues
    Big house own, no boss fun, lucky fuck wish I was you

    So proud would be your mother
    Anything you want, pick your lover
    From here looks so fine
    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    Endangered species, caged in fright
    Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight
    The stage is set, now pay the price
    And ego boost, don't think twice

    Technology, the battle's unfair
    You pull the hammer without a care
    Squeeze the trigger that makes you man
    Pseudo-safari, the hunt is canned
    The hunt is canned

    All are gone, all but one
    No contest, nowhere to run
    No more left, only one
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction

    Tell the truth, you wouldn't dare
    The skin and trophy, oh, so rare
    Silence speaks louder than words
    Ignore the guilt and take your turn

    Liars anagram is lairs
    Man you were never even there
    Killed a few feet from the cages
    Point blank, you're so courageous
    So courageous

    All are gone, all but one
    No contest, nowhere to run
    No more left, only one
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction

    One hour from now
    Another species of life form
    Will disappear off the face of the planet
    Forever and the rate is accelerating

    All are gone, all but one
    No contest, nowhere to run
    No more left, only one
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction

    "An extremely quiet child" they called you in your school report
    "He's always taken interest in the subjects that he's taught"
    So what was it that brought the squad car screaming up your drive
    To notify your parents of the manner in which you died

    At St. Patricks every Sunday, Father Fletcher heard your sins
    "Oh, he's unconcerned with competition he never cares to win"
    But blood stained a young hand that never held a gun
    And his parents never thought of him as their troubled son

    "Now you'll never get to Heaven" Mama said
    Remember Mama said
    Ticking, ticking
    "Grow up straight and true blue
    Run along to bed"
    Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking

    They had you holed up in a downtown bar screaming for a priest
    Some gook said "His brain's just snapped" then someone called the police
    You'd knifed a Negro waiter who had tried to calm you down
    Oh you'd pulled a gun and told them all to lay still on the ground
    Promising to hurt no one, providing they were still
    A young man tried to make a break, with tear-filled eyes you killed
    That gun butt felt so smooth and warm cradled in your palm
    Oh your childhood cried out in your head "they mean to do you harm"

    "Don't ever ride on the devil's knee" Mama said
    Remember mama said
    Ticking, ticking
    "Pay your penance well, my child
    Fear where angels tread"
    Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking

    Within an hour the news had reached the media machine
    A male caucasian with a gun had gone berserk in Queens
    The area had been sealed off, the kids sent home from school
    Fourteen people lying dead in a bar they called the Kicking Mule
    Oh they pleaded to your sanity for the sake of those inside
    "Throw out your gun, walk out slow just keep your hands held high"
    But they pumped you full of rifle shells as you stepped out the door
    Oh you danced in death like a marionette on the vengeance of the law

    "You've slept too long in silence" Mama said
    Remember Mama said
    Ticking, ticking
    "Crazy boy, you'll only wind up with strange notions in your head"
    Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking

    A shadow of a man, I'm nothing less
    I am holding on, still holding on
    And every now and then life begins again
    I am holding on, still holding on

    I'm not like you, your faceless lies
    Your weak dead heart, your black dead eyes
    I'll make it through but not this time
    Your hope is gone and so is mine


    Live, fight, crawl back inside
    Sick, blind, love left behind
    And I won't live your weak wicked lie
    You pull me in, I'm one step behind


    Show me where it hurts and I'll make it worse
    Are you holding on? Keep holding on
    Dilated eyes shine for one last time
    Are you holding on? Keep holding on


    You're not like me, your faceless lies
    Your weak dead heart, your black dead eyes
    I'll break you in and let this die
    Your hope is gone and so is mine


    Live, fight, crawl back inside
    Sick, blind, love left behind
    And I won't live your weak wicked lie
    You pull me in, I'm one step behind


    I'm becoming a monster, just like you
    After it all you'll try to break me too
    Falling forever, chasing dreams
    I brought you to life so I can hear you scream


    Live, fight, crawl back inside
    Sick, blind, love left behind
    And I won't live your weak wicked lie
    You pull me in, I'm one step behind

    I'm one step behind, I'm one step behind

    Don't touch me, I don't wanna feel your skin.
    I know that you're only gonna hurt me.
    I hear you, I don't wanna do it again,
    Because we both know this is not a passing trait.

    All along a failure to connect and to compromise.
    Right or wrong, its easy to react. Time to realize.

    No more.

    And you keep talking but we both know that it's not true.
    I still know that you're wrong.
    And no matter what we've both had to go through,
    I just can't, I can't hold on.

    We cannot waste our lives this way.

    How far we've fallen in the road before us, leagues apart.

    And you keep talking but we both know it's not true.
    I still know that you're wrong.
    And no matter what we've both had to go through,
    I just can't, I can't hold on.

    And when you asked if I believed and I told you,
    Strength of it made me strong.
    But I can't feel a thing that I used to,
    And I can't, I can't hold on.

    Come get some.

    And you keep talking but we both know it's not true.
    I still know that you're wrong.
    And no matter what we've both had to go through,
    I just can't, I can't hold on.

    And when you asked if I believed, and I told you,
    Strength of it Made me strong.

    very nice lyrics razor!

    Lie, awake
    and Watching you runthrough my head
    I'm alone again
    but not for long my friend
    We face, another day
    And distance has come, and taken you far away again
    but ill see you soon my friend
    and then ill sing you my song

    I cant
    Go home alone again
    No I can't
    My friend
    Until then

    Eyes I recognize
    Taken me back, familiar to me from some other time
    or maybe another life
    remember our time
    and know who I am
    the memory it stays until we can breath as 1 again
    [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/until-then-lyrics-sully-erna.html ]
    and I'm coming back my friend
    and then ill sing you my song

    Oh yeah
    I can't
    go home alone again
    No I cant
    go home all alone again
    no I can't
    my friend
    Until then

    And I cant
    go home alone again
    no I can't
    go home alone again
    no I cant
    go home all alone again
    No i cant
    my friend
    Until then

    And how many ways can you break my spirit down...again
    And how many times have I peeled my face off of the ground.. for you
    In case that your starting to think you can run my life.. I'd think again
    Or cripple my faith, when you judge and criticize me.. but I'm still standing

    I don't know if I can say
    I've lived through everything
    but i've walked this earth alone
    with bare feet broken in the snow
    and my father said to me
    it never seems to be
    a simple walk down an icy cold broken road

    disgraced, and ashamed afraid to walk the line... again
    Controlled for too many years, but never once forgiven,... for my sins
    And I never thought I'd say, that I'm weaker today than I was yesterday..oh man
    But I'll fight as I always fight with whats inside of me.. this warrior spirit inside of me

    I don't know if I can say
    I've lived through everything
    but I've walked this earth alone
    with bare feet broken in the snow
    and my father said to me
    it never seems to be
    a simple walk down an icy cold broken road

    and time after time
    a man who couldn't be a man.. im alone but I'm alive
    and been taught to believe whats meant to be.. will be

    I don't know if I can say
    I've lived through everything
    but I've walked this earth alone
    with bare feet broken in the snow
    and my father said to me
    it never seems to be
    a simple walk down an icy cold broken road...again
    An icy cold broken road.. man

    I guess I'll never know
    But I've been told
    Its an icy cold broken road
    It's an icy cold broken road..

    When, when will the icicle melt,
    The icicle, icicle?
    And when, when will the picture show end,
    The picture show, picture show?

    I should not have read the paper today,
    'Cause a child, child, child, child he was taken away.

    There's a place for the baby that died,
    And there's time for the mother who cried.
    And she will hold him in her arms sometime,
    'Cause nine months is too long, too long, too long...

    How, how could you hurt the child,
    How could you hurt the child?
    Now, does this make you satisfied,
    Satisfied, satisfied?

    I don't know what's happ'ning to people today,
    When a child, child, child, child, he was taken away.

    There's a place for the baby that died,
    And there's time for the mother who cried.
    And she will hold him in her arms sometime,

    Something has left my life
    And I don't know where it went to
    Somebody caused me strife
    And it's not what I was seeking.
    Didn't you see me, didn't you hear me
    Didn't you see me standing there
    Why did you turn out the lights
    Did you know that I was sleeping
    Say a prayer for me
    Help me to feel the strength I did
    My identity has been taken
    Is my heart breaking on me
    All my plans fell though my hands
    They fell
    Though my hands on me
    All my dreams, it suddenly seems
    Empty

    shifting through the ashes
    and scratching through my life
    and how sick is it to live with the promises
    no rhyme or reason expect another fight
    and my decisions are based on your ignorance

    and I blame you
    for everything you do
    for all the scars I bare
    and breathing all my air
    for everything I'll ever do
    I blame you

    I'm taking every prisoner through the ups and downs
    and my ship ain't gona sink to the hypocrites
    reach deep inside me and tear away my soul
    and nobody left to comfort me anymore

    and I blame you
    for everything you do
    for all the scars I bare
    and breathing all my air

    Drink the wine my darling, you said
    Take your time and consume all of it
    But the roses were only to drain my inspiration
    The promises were spoiled before they left your lips and...

    I breathe you in again
    Just to feel you underneath my skin
    Holding onto the sweet escape
    Is always laced with a familiar taste of poison

    I tell myself that you're are no good for me
    I wish you well but desire never leaves
    I could fight this to the end
    But maybe I don't wanna win

    I breathe you in again
    Just to feel you underneath my skin
    Holding onto the sweet escape
    Is always laced with a familiar taste of poison

    I don't wanna be saved, I don't wanna be sober
    I want you on my mind, in my dreams
    Behind these eyes that I wanna wake up
    No, not this time

    I wish I had your pair of wings
    Had them last night in my dreams
    I was chasing butterflies
    Till the sunrise broke my eyes

    Tonight the sky has glued my eyes
    Cause what they see´s an angel hive
    I´ve got to touch that magic sky
    And geet the angels in their hive

    Refrain
    Sometimes I wish I were an angel
    Sometimes I wish I were you
    Sometimes I wish I were an angel
    Sometimes I wish I were you

    And all the sweet honey from above
    Pour it all over me sweet love
    And while you´re flying around my head
    Your honey kisses keep me fed

    I wish I had your pair of wings
    Just like last night in my dreams
    I was lost in paradise
    Wish I´d never opened my eyes

    Refrain
    Sometimes I wish I were an angel
    Sometimes I wish I were you
    Sometimes I wish I were an angel
    Sometimes I wish I were you

    But there´s danger in the air
    Tryin´so hard to be unfair
    Danger´s in the air
    Tryin´ so hard to give us a scare
    But we´re not afraid

    Come out come out
    No use in hiding
    Come now come now
    Can you not see?
    There's no place here
    What were you expecting
    Not room for both
    Just room for me
    So you will lay your arms down
    Yes I will call this home
    Away away
    You have been banished
    Your land is gone
    And given me
    And here I will spread my wings
    Yes I will call this home
    What's this you say
    You feel a right to remain
    Then stay and I will bury you
    What's that you say
    Your father's spirit still lives in this place
    I will silence you
    Here's the hitch
    Your horse is leaving
    Don't miss your boat
    It's leaving now
    And as you go I will spread my wings
    Yes I will call this home
    I have no time to justify to you
    Fool you're blind, move aside for me
    All I can say to you my new neighbor
    Is you must move on or I will bury you
    Now as I rest my feet by this fire
    Those hands once warmed here
    I have retired them
    I can breathe my own air
    I can sleep more soundly
    Upon these poor souls
    I'll build heaven and call it home
    'Cause you're all dead now
    I live with my justice
    I live with my greedy need
    I live with no mercy
    I live with my frenzied feeding
    I live with my hatred
    I live with my jealousy
    I live with the notion
    That I don't need anyone but me
    Don't drink the water
    Don't drink the water
    There's blood in the water
    Don't drink the water

    I don't wanna feel no more
    It's easier to keep falling
    Imitations are pale
    Emptiness all tomorrows
    Haunted by your ghost

    Lay down, black gives way to blue
    Lay down, I'll remember you
    Fading out by design
    Consciously avoiding changes
    Curtains drawn now it's done
    Silencing all tomorrows
    Forcing a goodbye

    Lay down, black gives way to blue
    Lay down, I'll remember you..

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    wow, these get me everytime!!!

    Forcing a goodbye

    The dust is clearing, the desert is calm.
    The skies are all quiet and I can't make a sound.
    An I just wait for you.

    I'm calling for a savior to show me where to start.
    And all who still remain are whispering in the dark.
    And we just wait for a sign.

    So this is my once upon at time.
    So this is my star-crossed wasteland.

    The wolves are ascending, the vultures are near.
    And I'm still here waiting for you to reappear.
    And you just wait for a sign

    So this is my once upon at time.
    So this is my star-crossed wasteland.

    And you'll never know what it is you've done to me.
    And we all wait for a sign.
    And we just wait for a sign.

    I've got more friends like you, what do I do?

    Is there no standard anymore?
    What it takes, who I am, where I've been, belong
    You can't be something you're not
    Be yourself by yourself, stay away from me

    A lesson learned in life, known from the dawn of time
    Respect, walk, what did you say?
    Respect, walk, are you talking to me?
    Are you talking to me?

    Rock your mouth when I'm not around, it's easy to achieve
    You cry to weak friends that sympathize
    Can you hear the violins playing your song?
    Those same friends tell me your every word

    Is there no standard anymore?
    What it takes, who I am, where I've been, belong
    You can't be something you're not
    Be yourself by yourself, stay away from me

    A lesson learned in life, known from the dawn of time
    Respect, walk, what did you say?
    Respect, walk, are you talking to me?

    Respect, walk, what did you say?
    Respect, walk, are you talking to me?
    Are you talking to me? No way punk

    Respect, walk, what did you say?
    Respect, walk, are you talking to me?

    Respect, walk, what did you say?
    Respect, walk, are you talking to me?
    Are you talking to me? Walk on home boy


    It's just a matter of time, no matter how he tries. He hears "Plata O Plomo Gringo?" The last words before he dies.

    Just let it go, don't want to haunt you anymore
    I can't be sure I know just what we're fight for
    I know that you're scared and that you're thinking I may go
    I'm not leaving, I'm not leaving

    And if you're thinking I might, might be lead astray
    Just remember this one question

    What if I was nothing? What if this is true?
    What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you?
    So what if I was angry, what did you think I'd do?
    I told you that I love you, girl, I'm nothing without you

    I know it's hard, it seems that we've worked at this so long
    Soft and foolish pride that tells us we're not wrong
    I hear your voice, you tell me that you'll never go
    And I believe it, I believe it.

    And if you're thinking I might, might be lead astray
    Just remember this one question
    What if I was nothing? What if this is true?
    What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you?
    So what if I was angry, what did you think I'd do?
    I told you that I love you, girl, I'm nothing without you

    And we can keep this going on, we'll make it work some way
    And every step, it makes us stronger every day

    And if you're thinking I might, might be lead astray
    Just remember this one question

    What if I was nothing? What if this is true?
    What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you?
    So what if I was angry, what did you think I'd do?
    I told you that I love you, girl, I'm nothing without you

    What if I was nothing? What if this is true?
    What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you?
    So what if I was angry, what did you think I'd do?
    I told you that I love you, girl, I'm nothing without you.
