Lyric Association

Okay. You basically just put up song lyrics(in full) from some band(name both) and the next person has to put up song lyrics that are have somewhat the same meaning of the previous post. (Eggplant, I know you'll love this! )

I'll start with War by System of a Down

Dark is the light,
The man you fight,
With all your prayers, incantations,
Running away, a trivial day,
Of judgement and deliverance,
To whom was sold, this bounty soul,
A gentile or a priest?
Who victored over, the Seljuks,
When the Holy Land was taken

We will fight the heathens...

Was it the riches, of the land,
Powers of bright darkness,
That led the noble, to the East,
To fight the heathens

We will fight the heathens....

We must call upon our bright darkness,
Beliefs, they're the bullets of the wicked,
One was written on the sword,
For you must enter a room to destroy it,
International security,
Call of the righteous man,
Needs a reason to kill man,
History teaches us so,
The reason he must attain,
Must be approved by his God,
His child, partisan brother of war,
Of war, we don't speak anymore...

We will fight the heathens....


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

WAR BIRDS

Don't wish too hard
you will only find they stay
cruel cold beak lines
the War Birds are here to stay
trim lined in silver
cast from the cogs in the machine
designed by the peace movement
war is perfectly real
threat on the horizons
past the fumes from the stacks
gather at the rally
for the War Birds are back
and Black, Gold, and Green
funded American~Iraqian dreams
like the fiery Phoenix
in numbers they rise from the flames
of anti-war campaigns
to scourge land and sea
for world supremacy
Manifest Destiny;

Don't wish too hard or fight
Philosophers of peace
keepers of war alight
do not wish too hard
the War Birds are here to stay.


War Birds by Darth Eggplant


*this is not a song,
it is almost dinner
and I am too lazy to look for
appropraite Lyrics
but you're right Jofa
this is up my alley
and I am sure you and I
will derive great pleasure
from this thread.*




Beware the lollipop of mediocrity, lick once and you suck forever

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.
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.
Too many p-p-p-p-puppies.
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.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

No One Lives Forever

You worry too much
You make yourself sad
You can't change fate
But don't feel so bad
Enjoy it while you can
It's just like the weather
Quit complaining brother
No one lives forever!

Let's have a party
there's a full moon in the sky
It's the hour of the wolf
and I don't want to die
I'm so happy dancing
while the Grim Reaper
Cuts, cuts, cuts,
but he can't get me
I'm as clever as can be
And I'm very quick,
but don't forget
We've only got so many tricks
No one lives forever!

You think you've got it rough?
What about your darling doggy
Ten short years,
he's getting old and groggy
I don't think it's very fair
Cold, chop, low,
but it's all relative my friend
No one lives forever!

Let's have a party
there's a full moon in the sky
It's the hour of the wolf
and I don't want to die
I'm so happy dancing
while the Grim Reaper
Cuts, cuts, cuts,
but he can't get me
I'm as clever as can be
And I'm very quick,
but don't forget
We've only got so many tricks
No one lives forever!

You worry too much
You make yourself sad
You can't change fate
But don't feel so bad
Enjoy it while you can
It's just like the weather
Quit complaining brother
No one lives forever!

Let's have a party
there's a full moon in the sky
It's the hour of the wolf
and I don't want to die

No one beats him at his game
For very long but just the same
Who cares, there's no place safe to hide
No where to run, no time to cry
So celebrate while you still can
'Cause any second it may end
And when it's all been said and done
It's better that you had some fun
Instead of hiding in your shell
Why make your life a living hell
So drink your toast and down the cup
Drink to bones that turn to dust
'Cause no one, no one, no one, no one
No one, no one, no one, no one
No one, no one, no one, no one
No one lives forever!

DON'T FEAR THE REAPER by BLUE OYSTER CULT

All our times have come. Here but now they're gone.

Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
We can be like they are
(Come on baby) Don't fear the reaper
(Baby take my hand) Don't fear the reaper
(We'll be able to fly) Don't fear the reaper
(Baby I'm your man)

La La La La La...
La La La La La...

Valentine is done. Here but now they're gone.

Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity
Romeo and Juliet
(40,000 men and women everyday) Like Romeo and Juliet
(40,000 men and women everyday) Redefine happiness
(Another 40,000 comin' everyday) We can be like they are
(Come on baby) Don't fear the reaper
(Baby take my hand) Don't fear the reaper
(We'll be able to fly) Don't fear the reaper
(Baby I'm your man)

La La La La La...
La La La La La...

Love of two is one. Here but now they're gone.

He came last night out of sadness
And it was clear that she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared
(Saying don't be afraid) Come on baby
(And she had no fear) And she ran to him
(Then they started to fly) They looked backward and said goodbye
She had become like they are (She had taken his hand)
She had become like they are (Come on baby)
Don't fear the reaper

Don't Pay The Ferryman

Chris DeBurgh

It was late at night
on the open road,
speeding like a man on run
A lifetime spent preparing
for the journey.
He is closer now
and the search is on,
reading from a map in the mind:
Yes there's that ragged hill
and there's a boat on the river.

And when the rain came down,
he heard a wild dog howl
There were voices in the night
(Don't do it!)
Voices out of sight
(Dont't do it!)
To many men have failed before,
whatever you do;

Don't pay the ferryman!
Don't even fix a price!
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side.

In the rolling mist,
then he gets on board,
now there'll be no turning back
Beware that hooded old man
at the rudder.
And then the lightning flashed
and the thunder roared,
and people calling out his name,
And dancing bones
that jabbered-and-a-moaned
on the water.

And then the ferryman said
"There is trouble ahead,
So you must pay me now."
(Don't do it!)
"You must pay me now."
(Don't do it!)
And still that voice
came from beyond,
whatever you do;

Don't pay the ferryman!
Don't even fix a price!
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side.


*this is a great game Jofa,
although I think we will be
the only 2 playing it.*

THE TIDE by NEUROSIS

Where are they now?
They are gone.
I saw them run,
run to the sea.

Under the waves all has been said.
Their voices are free.
Free from the sun's stare,
free from the noise of lost souls.

An exiled sound washed in with the tide.
Their voices are free.
Free from the sun's stare,
free from the noise of lost souls.

On the waves their voice carries on.

The Tide Is High
Blondie

The tide is high
but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
I'm not the kind of girl
Who gives up just like that
Oh, no

It's not the things you do
That tease and wound me bad
But it's the way you do
The things you do to me
I'm not the kind of girl
Who gives up just like that
Oh, no

The tide is high
but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
Number one, number one

Every girl wants you
to be her man
But I'll wait my dear
'til it's my turn
I'm not the kind of girl
Who gives up just like that
Oh, no

The tide is high
but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
Number one, number one

Every girl wants you
to be her man
But I'll wait my dear
'til it's my turn
I'm not the kind of girl
Who gives up just like that
Oh, no

The tide is high
but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
{Repeat}

BUSINESS
Eminem

B*tches and gentlemen, it's showtime! Hurry, hurry step right up! Introducing the star of our show, his name is HUSHAR! You wouldn't wanna be anyone else in the world right now, so without further ado, I bring to you HUSHAR!

You gotsa waiting in Hip Hop and it's the most purest, most rawest form flow or most flawless, most hardest, most honest known artist. Chip off the ol' block but ol' doc is back. Looks like Batman brought his own Robin, oh god but Dom's got his own lobbin', with his own private plane, his own pilot, set to blow collage dooroom doors off their hinges, oranges, peach, pears, plums, syringes *VROOM VROOM* Hear, here come my midges away from you hair fair none. Hip hop is in the state of 911 so:

Let's get down to Business. I don't got no time to play around what is this? Must be a circus in town, let's shut the sh*t down and these clowns, and I got a witness. HELL YEAH!

Let's get down to Business. I don't got no time to play around what is this? Must be a circus in town, let's shut the sh*t down and these clowns, and I got a witness. HELL YEAH!

Hey, gotta move fast, gotta perform miracles. Gee willikers, Dre, holy bat syllables! Look at all the bullsh*t that goes on in Gotham when I'm gone, time to get rid of these rap criminals so skip to your loo while I do what I do best. You ain't even impressed no more, you used to wait, flows to wet, nobody close to wait, nobody says it while everybody knows this sh*t. The most hated of all of those who said they hate it all so much, they make it all up there's no such thing like a female with good looks who cooks and cleans. It just means so much more, there's so much more people when you're rapping and you know what for, the show must go on, so I'd like to welcome you all to Marshall and Andre's corner for... come on now,

Let's get down to Business. I don't got no time to play around what is this? Must be a circus in town, let's shut the sh*t down and these clowns, and I got a witness. HELL YEAH!

Let's get down to Business. I don't got no time to play around what is this? Must be a circus in town, let's shut the sh*t down and these clowns, and I got a witness. HELL YEAH!

It's just like old times, the dynamic duo, two old friends, why panic, you already know so be capable, the two cape heroes, right down the center eight-zero-zero you can even call collect the most feared duet since me and Elton played Korean Russian Roulette, and never even see me blink and get the bus in a sweat, people stepping over people just to rush to the set just to get to see an M.C who breathes so freely, ease over these beats and be so breezy, Jesus how can she be so easy? How can one Shandra be so leaby? Turn on these beats and sees don't see me, believe me, VAT and MTV are gonna grieve when we leave, dog, for sheezy, csn't leave rap alone the gang needs me. 'Til we grow beards, get weird and disappear into the mountains. Nothing but clowns down here, but we ain't f*cking around round here. Yo Dre (What up?), can I get ahead now?

Let's get down to Business. I don't got no time to play around what is this? Must be a circus in town, let's shut the sh*t down and these clowns, and I got a witness. HELL YEAH!

Let's get down to Business. I don't got no time to play around what is this? Must be a circus in town, let's shut the sh*t down and these clowns, and I got a witness. HELL YEAH!

So there you have it, folks, HUSHAR has come to save the day, back with his friend Andre, and a reminder that bullsh*t does not pay because HUSHAR and Andre are here to stay, and will never go away until a dying day, until we're old and grey. So until next time, friends, same blind air, same rap channel. Goodnight everyone. Thank you for coming. You host for the evening: HUSHAR!

Most o' this could be wrong because I'm typing while playing and pausing the song.

You can't say that when you don't like rap in the first place. Because Eminem is great if you do, because then you know how much all the other rappers suck and are exactly the same. At least Eminem's like rhymes every line unlike all those other rappers they play on mtv. That and his lyrics are pretty deep, though filled with personal angst, but people don't seem to mind that.

Anyway, the only problem is Sanspoofs post was a song almost nothing to do with the one posted before. So I'll restart the cycle with a good ol' Residents classic. I read this thread and realized that i hadn't posted any by them, so here is something by them more decipherable than there other lyrics(though better than these, just less decipherable)

GODSONG by RESIDENTS

God never really did like man anyway
At least not after they started walking around on their hind legs
And talking on the telephone
Of course poor God's point of view wasn't easy
Now understand that God invented man from dead things
Of course they're were no graveyards to rob
So he had been forced to use dead worms and some seeweed that had laid on the beach for quite a while, for quite a while

At the time man had four legs and no telephone
A major mistake came when God decided that men should think
A trait that He had long desired for himself
And what god no double intended was for man to think about him
And that was important because God just wanted to be just another normal deity deity deity ty ty ty ty ty ty

All that god wanted to be was just a normal deity
Another normal deity

It well for quite a while
Man was a wonderful creature with a long rich engraved face
Four fine legs ending in five mini-legs
A coat of satiny hair
And large genitals
His thoughts were pure and full of wonder
The wonder part was God's favorite at least at first
Because that's the part that gave him his identity identity identity identity

Oh, it was so wonderful for God
Man's...man's questions turned to visions
And these visions gave a kinds of exciting things to do
Someday he would be a God of wrath reeking havoc upon undisipline mankind
And at another time he would be a God of love and compassion
Of course these were all things that man had invented so God had a hard time getting the full grasp

One of God's favorite things was Man's believing in him and then not believing in him
Believing in him, not believing in him
Believing in him, not believing in him
Like some hide and seek game
Over and over and over and over
Believing in him, not believing in him
Believing in him, not believing in him
Believing in him, believing in him
Not believing in him
Not believing in him......
I think he liked believing in him much better
But I'm not sure

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

Strange song, huh?


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
