    Soundgarden - Fell on Black Days

    Whatsoever I've feared has come to life
    Whatsoever I've fought off became my life
    Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
    Sunspots have faded
    And now I'm doing time
    Cause I fell on black days

    Whomsoever I've cured I've sickened now
    Whomsoever I've cradled I've put you down
    I'm a search light soul they say
    But I can't see it in the night
    I'm only faking when I get it right
    Cause I fell on black days
    How would I know
    That this could be my fate

    So what you wanted to see good has made you blind
    And what you wanted to be yours has made it mine
    So don't you lock up something that you wanted to see fly
    Hands are for shaking
    No, not tying
    No, not tying

    I sure don't mind a change
    But I fell on black days
    How would I know
    That this could be my fate

    Wayne Kirkpatrick is my favorite songwriter.


    "Better Angels of Our Nature"


    He fell to his knees and he cried out for mercy
    Heart-felt confessionals to an angry mob
    But vengeance was theirs as they bellowed for justice
    "Death to the man who has sinned against God."

    I joined in the chant feeling so high and mighty
    Pointing the finger from up on my throne
    'Til I looked in his tears and I caught my reflection
    And I knew that I could not cast the first stone.

    Let the gavel fall slowly tho' truth's been revealed
    Sequester the jury for a moment to feel
    And in the courts of compassion I hope we can appeal
    To the better angels of our nature, to the better angels of our nature.

    I walked along on my soft streets of plenty
    She walked the alleys of anguish and need
    While clutching my greed I was struck by a vision
    But for the grace of God, that could be me.

    And we gather in chambers of lofty ideals
    Still debating the giving when handed the bill
    But in the congress of kindness I hope that we can yield
    To the better angels of our nature, to the better angels of our nature.

    Angels of mercy, angels of light
    Angels of darkness, angels of might
    Angels with voices that whisper so clear
    Who do I lean to, who do I hear?

    We are building our world with a fevered emotion
    While trying to keep it from coming apart
    But as we reach for the dream can we still reach within us
    We won't have the hope if we don't have the heart.

    'Cause we're tossed in the gale of a moral decline
    As we drink from the grail of society's wine
    But at humanity's table I hope we choose to dine
    With the better angels of our nature.

    With the better angels of our nature...


    "Call of the Wild"

    He was 21 when he got married
    His son was born when he was 23
    He watched his reckless days of youth
    Turn to years of responsibility.

    His world became routine and he got restless
    The family ties that bind just tied him down
    He felt his life was passing him by
    Felt his dreams were crashing to the ground.

    And that grass was looking greener
    Beyond the limits of that simple town.

    Cause he wanted a life of adventure
    So he left behind a wife and a child
    They begged him to stay
    But he threw it all away
    And he answered the call of the wild.

    He lived it up out there in Arizona
    He got rowdy down in Tennessee
    Making up for lost time
    Crossing the line now that he was free
    But when the dust finally settled
    He saw just how alone a man can be.

    But he wanted a life of adventure
    So he left behind a wife and a child
    But the freedom he loved
    He was now a prisoner of
    Since he answered the call of the wild.

    And somewhere in the darkness
    He began to see the light
    He wondered what his chances might be
    To make things right so.

    He went running back to where he came from
    In hopes he'd be received like the prodigal son
    But in the place he once called home
    He found it was no longer home to anyone
    And in a house cold and empty
    Through tears he cried,"My God, what have I done?"

    But he wanted a life of adventure
    So he left behind a wife and a child
    They begged him to stay
    But he threw it all away
    And he answered the call of the wild.

    Yeah, he answered the call of the wild...


    "Grand Canyon"

    I've seen You calm the waters raging
    in the rivers of my mind
    Your spirit blows a breeze into my soul
    And I've felt the fire that warms the heart
    Knowing that it comes from You
    Then I've let it turn as cold as a stone
    Sometimes I feel like I'm as close as your shadow and
    Sometimes I feel like I'm looking up
    at You from the bottom of the

    Grand Canyon, so small and so far
    From the Grand Canyon, with a hole in my heart
    And I'm a long way from where I know I need to be
    When there's a Grand Canyon between You and me

    I've had the faith that gave me strength
    for moving any mountainside
    I've felt the solid ground beneath my feet
    But I've had the bread of idleness while
    drinking from a well of doubt
    And it shakes the core of all I believe
    Sometimes I feel like I'm as close as your shadow and
    Sometimes I feel like I'm looking up
    at you from the bottom of the

    Grand Canyon, so small and so far
    From the Grand Canyon, with a hole in my heart
    And I'm a long way from where I know I need to be
    When there's a Grand Canyon between You and me
    When there's a Grand Canyon between You and me



    "Hanging By A Thread"

    There's a kind of emptiness that can fill you.
    There's a kind of hunger that can eat you up.
    There's a cold and darker side of the moonlight.
    An' there's a lonely side of love.

    With you here, baby, I am strong; no sign of weakness.
    With you gone, baby, I am hanging by a thread.

    There's a certain kind of pain that can numb you.
    There's a type of freedom that can tie you down.
    Sometimes the unexplained can define you,
    And sometimes, silence is the only sound.

    With you here, baby, I am strong; no sign of weakness.
    With you gone, baby, I am hanging by a thread.

    With you here, baby, I am strong; no sign of weakness.
    With you gone, baby, I am hanging by a thread.

    I'm tempted to spend an hour downloading these songs and compare the actual songs to the lyrics to see how inaccurate they are.

    Don't Laugh at Me- Mark Wills

    I'm a little boy with glasses
    The one they call the geek
    A little girl who never smiles
    'Cause I've got braces on my teeth
    And I know how it feels
    To cry myself to sleep

    I'm that kid on every playground
    Who's always chosen last
    A single teenage mother
    Tryin' to overcome my past
    You don't have to be my friend
    But is it too much to ask

    Don't laugh at me
    Don't call me names
    Don't get your pleasure from my pain
    In God's eyes we're all the same
    Someday we'll all have perfect wings
    Don't laugh at me

    I'm the cripple on the corner
    You've passed me on the street
    And I wouldn't be out here beggin'
    If I had enough to eat
    And don't think I don't notice
    That our eyes never meet

    I lost my wife and little boy when
    Someone cross that yellow line
    The day we laid them in the ground
    Is the day I lost my mind
    And right now I'm down to holdin'
    This little cardboard sign...so

    Don't laugh at me
    Don't call me names
    Don't get your pleasure from my pain
    In God's eyes we're all the same
    Someday we'll all have perfect wings
    Don't laugh at me

    I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm short, I'm tall
    I'm deaf, I'm blind, hey, aren't we all

    Don't laugh at me
    Don't call me names
    Don't get your pleasure from my pain
    In God's eyes we're all the same
    Someday we'll all have perfect wings
    Don't laugh at me



    Stray- Steve Conte [music/lyrics by Yoko Kanno & Tim Jensen]

    Stray! Stray!

    In the cold breeze that I walk along
    The memories of generations burn within me
    Been forever since I cried the pain and sorrow
    I live and die, proud of my people gaining

    I'm here standing at the edge
    Starin up at where the moon should be

    Stray!
    No regrets 'cause I got nothin to lose
    Ever stray!
    So I'm gonna live my life as I choose
    Until I fall..

    Stray! Stray!
    Stray! Stray!

    In the white freeze, I never spoke of tears
    Or opened up to anyone including myself
    I would like to find a way to open to you
    Been awhile, don't know if I remember how to

    I'm here waiting on the edge
    Would I be alright showing myself to you?
    It's always been so hard to do..

    Stray!
    No regrets 'cause I got nothin to lose
    Ever stray!
    So I'm gonna live my life as I choose
    Until I fall...

    Stray! Stray!
    Stray! Stray!
    Stray! Stray!

    Is there a place left there for me
    Somewhere that I belong
    Or will I always live this way... ?
    Always stray

    No regrets 'cause I got nothin to lose
    Ever stray!
    So I'm gonna live my life as I choose
    Cause all things fall

    Stray! Stray!
    Stray! Stray!
    Stray! Stray!




    Gotta knock a little harder

    Yoko Kanno - The Seatbelts

    Lyrics: Tim Jensen

    Vocal: Mai Yamane




    Happiness is just a word to me

    And it might of meant a thing or two

    If I had known the difference



    Emptiness, a lonely parody

    And my life, another smokin' gun

    A sign of my indifference



    Always keepin' safe inside

    Where no one ever had a chance

    To penetrate a break in



    Let me tell you some have tried

    But I would slam the door so tight

    That they could never get in



    Kept my cool under a lock and key

    And I never shed a tear

    Another sign of my condition



    Fear of love of bitter vanity

    That kept me on the run

    The main events at my confession



    I kept a chain upon my door

    That would shake the shame of Cain

    Into a blind submission



    The burning ghost without a name

    Was still calling all the same

    But I just wouldn't listen



    The longer I'd stall

    The further I'd crawl

    The further I'd crawl

    The harder I'd fall

    I was crawlin' into the fire



    The more that I saw

    The further I'd fall

    The further I'd fall

    The lower I'd crawl

    I kept fallin' into the fire

    Into the fire

    Into the fire



    Suddenly it occurred to me

    The reason for the run and hide

    Had totaled my existence



    Everything left on the other side

    Could never be much worse than this

    But could I go the distance



    I faced the door and all my shame

    Tearin' off each piece of chain

    Until they all were broken



    But no matter how I tried

    The other side was locked so tight

    The door it wouldn't open



    Gave it all that I got

    And started to knock

    Shouted for someone

    To open the lock

    I just gotta get through the door



    And the more that I knocked

    The hotter I got

    The hotter I got

    The harder I knocked

    I just gotta break through the door



    Gotta knock a little harder

    Gotta knock a little harder

    Gotta knock a little harder

    Break through the door
    Don't hate me because you're beautiful.

    Phish - Funky Bitch

    Every time I see her, she got new fancy clothes
    Every time I see her, she got new fancy clothes
    She took up all my money, and threw poor me out the door

    Lord now standing there, ain't got nowhere to go
    Lord now standing there, ain't got nowhere to go
    I've been down in bad condition now boy, cause I'm alone down here for sure

    Lord now standing there, ain't got nowhere to go
    Lord now standing there, ain't got nowhere to go
    I've been down in bad condition now boy, cause I'm alone down here for sure

    Every time I see her she's gotten all the boys in town
    Every time I see her she's gotten all the boys in town
    Till she took up all our money, sure gonna put her down.

    Gunning Down Romance - Savage Garden

    Love and other moments are just chemical reactions in your brain
    In your brain
    And feelings of aggression are the absence of the love drug in your veins
    In your veins
    Love come quickly
    Because I feel my self esteem is caving in
    Its on the brink
    Love come quickly
    Because I dont think I can keep this monster in
    Its in my skin

    Love and other socially acceptable emotions are morphine
    They're morphine
    Cleverly concealing primal urges often felt but rarely seen
    Rarely seen
    Love I beg you
    Lift me up into that privileged point of view
    The world of two
    Love dont leave me
    Because I console myself that hallmark cards are true
    I really do

    Im gunning down romance
    It never did a thing for me
    But heartache and misery
    Aint nothing but a tragedy

    Love dont leave me

    Take these broken wings
    Im going to take these broken wings
    And learn to fly
    And learn to fly away
    And learn to fly away

    Im gunning down romance
    To die would be an awfully big adventure - Peter Pan

    Iced Earth-Angel's Holocaust

    As I walk through the blackened forest
    Thoughts of hate and anger fill my soul
    The charred remains of the holy rollers
    Scream repentance though it's far too late

    I fight back the laughter at what I see
    The suffering healers false destined prophecy

    He didn't think yesterday of the end of his life
    The brainwashed fools born again of a thousand lies

    Hate filled screams break the silence
    Terrifying dreams filling up your head
    Blasphemy thrusting out, in the masses it reigns
    The mask of hypocrisy is slowly unveiled

    Fear the angels holocaust, they're screaming
    Dreams of pain forever entering your head
    Death and hatred loathing, on mankind it feeds
    Earth is dead and gone now, we've brought it to an end

    For the last time I've been betrayed
    Never again will I subject myself to this hypocrisy
    Something is drawing me to the other side
    Only time will tell my true destiny

    As I travel through the astral plain
    I see the break of day
    As though the sky has burst in flames
    Before the storm I dread
    Lightning breaks across the sky
    Blackish-blue at night
    Riders ride on dismal clouds
    I scream at heaven's light

    Rush - 2112

    -Temples of Syrinx-
    We've taken care of everything
    The words you hear, the songs you sing
    The pictures that give pleasure to your eyes
    It's one for all and all for one
    We work together, common sons
    Never need to wonder how or why

    We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx
    Our great computers fill the hallowed halls
    We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
    All the gifts of life are held within our walls

    Look around at this world we've made
    Equality our stock in trade
    Come and join the Brotherhood of Man
    Oh, what a nice, contented world
    Let the banners be unfurled
    Hold the Red Star proudly high in hand

    We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx
    Our great computers fill the hallowed halls
    We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx
    All the gifts of life are held within our walls

    -Discovery-
    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    See how it sings like a sad heart
    And joyously screams out its pain
    Sounds that build high like a mountain
    Or notes that fall gently like rain

    I can't wait to share this new wonder
    The people will all see its light
    Let them all make their own music
    The Priests praise my name on this night

    -Presentation-
    I know it's most unusual
    To come before you so
    But I've found an ancient miracle
    I thought that you should know
    Listen to my music
    And hear what it can do
    There's something here as strong as life
    I know that it will reach you

    Yes, we know, it's nothing new
    It's just a waste of time
    We have no need for ancient ways
    The world is doing fine
    Another toy that helped destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the plan

    I can't believe you're saying
    These things just can't be true
    Our world could use this beauty
    Just think what we might do
    Listen to my music
    And hear what it can do
    There's something here as strong as life
    I know that it will reach you

    Don't annoy us further!
    We have our work to do
    Just think about the average
    What use have they for you?
    Another toy that helped destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the Plan!

    -Oracle: The Dream-
    I wandered home through the silent streets
    And fell into a fitful sleep
    Escape to realms beyond the night
    Dream can't you show me the light?

    I stand atop a spiral stair
    An oracle confronts me there
    He leads me on light years away
    Through astral nights, galactic days
    I see the works of gifted hands
    That grace this strange and wondrous land
    I see the hand of man arise
    With hungry mind and open eyes

    They left the planet long ago
    The elder race still learn and grow
    Their power grows with purpose strong
    To claim the home where they belong
    Home to tear the Temples down...
    Home to change!

    -Soliloquy-
    The sleep is still in my eyes
    The dream is still in my head
    I heave a sigh and sadly smile
    And lie a while in bed
    I wish that it might come to pass
    Not fade like all my dreams...

    Just think of what my life might be
    In a world like I have seen!
    I don't think I can carry on
    Carry on this cold and empty life

    My spirits are low in the depths of despair
    My lifeblood...
    ...Spills over...

    -The Grand Finale-
    Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation
    Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation
    Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation
    We have assumed control
    We have assumed control
    We have assumed control
    Hands in the air, it's a robbery.

    It's pretty obvious from the fact that I'm ENTP why I love this song. It doesn't get much more ENTP than Brandon Boyd. I will bold the lines with which I identify most.

    Incubus - When it Comes

    It's coming around again
    They're letting it out again, again
    It's coming around again
    They're letting it out again
    When it comes, it comes abrupt and it feels
    It feels like trading brains with an imbecile, for real
    Yes, I feel emphatic about not being static (P)
    And not buying philosophies that are sold to me at a steal (NT)

    Just when you thought it was safe to think
    In comes mental piracy
    No, what I'm looking for can't be sold to me
    I wish they all would stop trying
    Cause what I want, and what I need
    Is and will always be free


    It's coming around again
    They're letting it out again, again
    It's coming around again
    They're letting it out again
    When it comes, it comes unannounced and it feels
    Like a matador is taunting me with his reddest red cloth
    And I am the bull

    Yes, I feel emphatic about not being static
    And not eating the bullshit that's being fed to me
    Cause now I'm full

    Just when you thought it was safe to think
    In comes mental piracy
    No, what I'm looking for can't be sold to me
    I wish they all would stop trying
    Cause what I want, and what I need
    Is and will always be free

    You've got the typical ENTP dramatic exaggeration to prove a point, usually for the purpose of insulting someone, hopelessly pedantic attempts to show off how smart and original he is (the album is called Make Yourself, and it may as well be subtitled ...Like Brandon Boyd); disgusted impatience with perceived stupidity and flagrant disregard for established rules and traditions...the singer displays not simple ignorance of the rules, as is common for SPs, but feels personally insulted by the constraints of these rules and encourages others to break them out of spite for the establishment. This is a recurring theme in Incubus lyrics, and I love every minute of it.

    I'm sick of painting in black and white / My pen is dry, now I'm up tight / So sick of limiting myself to fit your definition.
