    Audioslave - I am the Highway

    Pearls and swine bereft of me
    Long and weary my road has been
    I was lost in the cities
    Alone in the hills
    No sorrow or pity for leaving I feel

    (chorus)
    I am not your rolling wheels
    I am the highway
    I am not your carpet ride
    I am the sky

    Friends and liars don't wait for me
    I'll get on all by myself
    I put millions of miles
    Under my heels
    And still too close to you
    I feel

    (chorus)
    I am not your rolling wheels
    I am the highway
    I am not your carpet ride
    I am the sky
    I am not your blowing wind
    I am the lightning
    I am not your autumn moon
    I am the night

    ZZ Top - Jesus Just Left Chicago

    Jesus just left Chicago and he's bound for New Orleans.
    Well now, Jesus just left Chicago and he's bound for New Orleans.
    Yeah, yeah.
    Workin' from one end to the other and all points in between.

    Took a jump through Mississippi, well, muddy water turned to wine.
    Took a jump through Mississippi, muddy water turned to wine.
    Yeah, yeah.
    Then out to California through the forests and the pines.
    Ah, take me with you, Jesus.

    You might not see him in person but he'll see you just the same.
    You might not see him in person but he'll see you just the same.
    Yeah, yeah.
    You don't have to worry 'cause takin' care of business is his name.

    For some reason I've been listening to this song a lot lately.

    Ani DiFranco-Modulation

    In order to
    Say thank you to you
    I must do it intentionally
    But tonight with every breath
    I can feel my death
    Sure as I can feel my knees

    You were my modulation
    So that's what you will always be
    We took each other higher
    We set each other free

    Course, neither of us were wearing helmets
    And our blood was just everywhere
    And when the morphine kicked in later
    The censors threw their hands up in despair
    And that's when the truth came marching in
    And promptly pulled the plug
    But you were better than any drug
    You were better than any drug

    In order to
    Say thank you to you
    I must do it intentionally
    But tonight with every breath
    I can feel my death
    Sure as I can feel my knees

    You were my modulation
    And that's what you will always be
    We took each other higher
    Then we set each other free

    Not my usual type of song. But I like it. Anyone know what type she is?

    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Nickelback - Far Away

    This time, This place
    Misused, Mistakes
    Too long, Too late
    Who was I to make you wait
    Just one chance
    Just one breath
    Just in case theres just one left
    Cause you know,
    you know, you know

    That I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I miss you
    Been far away for far too long
    I keep dreaming youll be with me
    and youll never go
    Stop breathing if
    I dont see you anymore

    On my knees, Ill ask
    Last chance for one last dance
    Cause with you, Id withstand
    All of hell to hold your hand
    Id give it all
    Id give for us
    Give anything but I wont give up
    Cause you know,
    you know, you know

    That I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I miss you
    Been far away for far too long
    I keep dreaming youll be with me
    and youll never go
    Stop breathing if
    I dont see you anymore

    So far away
    Been far away for far too long
    So far away
    Been far away for far too long
    But you know, you know, you know

    I wanted
    I wanted you to stay
    Cause I needed
    I need to hear you say
    That I love you
    I have loved you all along
    And I forgive you
    For being away for far too long
    So keep breathing
    Cause Im not leaving you anymore
    Believe it
    Hold on to me and
    Never let me go
    Only after disaster can we be resurrected.

    Linkin Park - Leave Out All The Rest

    I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared
    But no one would listen, 'cause no one else cared
    After my dreaming, I woke with this fear
    What am I leaving when I'm done here?

    So if you're asking me, I want you to know

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Leave out all the rest, don't be afraid
    I've taken my beating, I've shared what I made
    I'm strong on the surface, not all the way through
    I've never been perfect, but neither have you

    So if you're asking me, I want you to know

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
    Leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
    I can't be who you are

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
    Leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
    I can't be who you are

    I can't be who you are

    Some nice contributions in this thread.

    "The Logical Song" by Supertramp

    When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
    A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
    And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
    Joyfully, playfully watching me.
    But then they sent me away to teach me how to be sensible,
    Logical, responsible, practical.
    And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
    Clinical, intellectual, cynical.

    There are times when all the world's asleep,
    The questions run too deep
    For such a simple man.
    Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned?
    I know it sounds absurd
    But please tell me who I am.

    Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
    Liberal, fanatical, criminal.
    Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
    Acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable.

    At night, when all the world's asleep,
    The questions run so deep
    For such a simple man.
    Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned?
    I know it sounds absurd
    But please tell me who I am.
    Who I am
    Who I am


    "Echoes" by Pink Floyd

    Overhead the albatross
    Hangs motionless upon the air
    And deep beneath the rolling waves
    In labyrinths of coral caves
    The echo of a distant time
    Comes willowing across the sand
    And everything is green and submarine.

    And no one showed us to the land
    And no one knows the where's or why's.
    But something stirs and something tries
    And starts to climb toward the light.

    Strangers passing in the street
    By chance two separate glances meet
    And I am you and what I see is me.
    And do I take you by the hand
    And lead you through the land
    And help me understand
    The best I can.

    And no one calls us to move on
    And no one forces down our eyes.
    No one speaks and no one tries
    No one flies around the sun....

    Cloudless everyday you fall
    Upon my waking eyes,
    Inviting and inciting me to rise.
    And through the window in the wall
    Come streaming in on sunlight wings
    A million bright ambassadors of morning.

    And no one sings me lullabyes
    And no one makes me close my eyes
    So I throw the windows wide
    And call to you across the sky....
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Grateful Dead - Ripple
    If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
    And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
    Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
    Would you hold it near as it were your own?

    Its a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
    Perhaps theyre better left unsung.
    I dont know, dont really care
    Let there be songs to fill the air.

    Ripple in still water,
    When there is no pebble tossed,
    Nor wind to blow.

    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 men.

    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.

    Ripple in still water,
    When there is no pebble tossed,
    Nor wind to blow.

    But if you fall you fall alone,
    If you should stand then whos to guide you?
    If I knew the way I would take you home.

    La dee da da da, la da da da da, da da da, da da, da da da da da
    La da da da, la da da, da da, la da da da, la da, da da.

    Paul Simon - The Cool, Cool River

    Moves like a fist through the traffic
    Anger and no one can heal it
    Shoves a little bump into the momentum
    It's just a little lump
    But you feel it
    In the creases and the shadows
    With a rattling deep emotion
    The cool, cool river
    Sweeps the wild, white ocean

    Yes Boss. The government handshake
    Yes Boss. The crusher of language
    Yes Boss. Mr. Stillwater,
    The face at the edge of the banquet
    The cool, the cool river
    The cool, the cool river

    I believe in the future
    I may live in my car
    My radio tuned to
    The voice of a star
    Sun dogs barking at the break of dawn
    Lightning pushes the edge of a thunderstorm
    And these old hopes and fears
    Still at my side

    Anger and no one can heal it
    Slides through the metal detector
    Lives like a mole in a motel
    A slide in a slide projector
    The cool, cool river
    Sweeps the wild, white ocean
    The rage, the rage of love turns inward
    To prayers of devotion
    And these prayers are
    The constant road across the wilderness
    These prayers are
    These prayers are the memory of God
    The memory of God

    And I believe in the future
    We shall suffer no more
    Maybe not in my lifetime
    But in yours I feel sure
    Sun dogs barking at the break of dawn
    Lightning pushes the edges of a thunderstorm
    And these streets
    Quiet as a sleeping army
    Send their battered dreams to heaven, to heaven
    For the mother's restless son
    Who is a witness to, who is a warrior
    Who denies his urge to break and run


    Who says: Hard times?
    I'm used to them
    The speeding planet burns
    I'm used to that
    My life's so common it disappears
    And sometimes even music
    Cannot substitute for tears

    Git some Ryan Adams on up in here! If I had my way, I'd post, like, half his repertoire.

    Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, Magnolia Mountain

    I want to go to Magnolia Mountain
    And lay my weary head down
    Down on the rocks
    On the mountain my savior made
    Steady my soul and ease my worry
    Hold me when I rattle like a hummingbird hummin'
    Tie me to the rocks on the mountain my savior made

    Lie to me
    Sing me a song
    Sing me a song until the morning comes
    If the morning comes, will you lie to me
    Will you take me to your bed
    Will you lay me down
    Till I'm heavy like the rocks on the riverbed
    That my savior made

    I want to be the bluebird singing
    Singing to the roses in her yard
    The roses in her yard her father grew for her
    It's been raining that Tennessee honey
    So long I got too heavy to fly
    Ain't no bluebird ever gets too heavy to sing

    Lie to me
    Sing me a song
    Sing me a song until the morning comes
    And if the morning don't come, will you lie to me
    Will you take me to your bed
    Will you lay me down
    Till I'm heavy like the rocks in the riverbed
    That my savior made

    We burned the cotton fields down in the valley
    And ended up with nothing but scars
    The scars became the lessons that we gave to our children after the war
    But there ain't nothing but the truth up on the Magnolia Mountain
    Where nobody ever dies
    Steady your soul and ease your worry
    They got a room for you

    Lie to me like I lie to you
    Calm me down until the morning comes
    And if the morning don't come
    Lie to me
    Will you take me to your bed
    Will you lay me down
    All heavy like the rocks in the riverbed
    That my savior made

    Mockingbird

    Mockingbirds sing
    Sing me what the Lord was singing
    On the day He made the water
    The color of the blues
    Sing me that song
    Sing me to till the heavens rising
    On the day He made the water
    The color of my baby's eyes

    Love her in the ways you want to be loved
    Love her in the ways she wants to be loved
    Love her in the ways you want to be loved

    But the way I'm loving her
    It must not be enough
    Cause in the way she cries
    It only tears me up
    I feel dead inside and dying
    And if you give up

    Don't give up on love
    Don't give up on love

    The rivers they run
    They run until they get too tired
    Until they run behind the houses
    And they become a creek

    When I was a child
    I ran until the creek became a river
    When it turned into the ocean
    I wondered why He'd made it so deep

    Love her in the ways you want to be loved
    Love her in the ways you want to be loved
    Love her in the ways you want to be loved

    But the way I'm loving her
    Must not be enough
    Cause the way she cries
    It only tears me up
    I feel dead inside and dying
    Don't give up
    Cause in a way she's crying
    It only tears me up
    I feel dead inside and dying
    Give up

    Don't give up on love
    Don't give up on love
    Love her in the ways you want to be loved
    Love her in the ways you want to be loved
    Love her in the ways you want to be loved
    Sometimes it ain't enough
    Sometimes it ain't enough


    Carolina Rain

    Rose lived on the south side of town

    Until her landlord showed up with two hundred dollar bills
    A notice of eviction on the other hand
    Now she don't live there no more,
    And everyone thinks he drowned,

    I pulled into Mecklenburg on them trains
    Into a station that was flooded when they opened up the dam
    And broke their connections to the railway lines
    So they could blast into the quarry,
    And for every load of granite,
    We got a ton of worry

    One night at the diner over eggs,
    Over easy she showed me the length of her legs,
    But that gold plated cross on her neck, it was real
    And you don't get that kind of money from pushing a meal

    I should've told him that you were the one for me,
    But I lied, But I lied,
    To most any drifter whose looking for work is too weird
    I met your sister and I married her in July
    But if only to be closer to you, Caroline

    Percy and I moved down the street
    Until we lost two pretty girls
    One was seven and one was three
    Alderman and Caroline owned the house right up the hill
    Where we laid those babies down
    So they could still see our house

    Suspicion got the best of old Alderman Haint
    He owned an auto parts store off the interstate
    But the lord took him home in July
    And then Rose spilled the beans on the day that he died
    We was in trouble,
    I should've told him that you were the one for me
    But I lied, But I lied
    Tied up to concrete at the bottom of the quarry
    With a tattoo on his heart that spelled out "Caroline"
    He was silent but his rosary well it
    Drifted into the custody
    Of a sheriff that was just deputized

    And I was down at the banquet hall
    When two guys came up, pretty angry and drunk
    And I'm still here at the banquet hall
    At the banquet hall
    Where the gun went off, in the Carolina Rain
    In the Carolina Rain, in the Carolina Rain
    ALL AROUND THE WORLD PEOPLE EATIN' GUMBO
