    Please no youtube videos. I want to hear some of your favorite lyrics.



    I'll start things out with some Bob Dylan.

    Bob Dylan - A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

    Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
    Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
    I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
    I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways,
    I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
    I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
    I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
    And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard,
    And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
    Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
    I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
    I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
    I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin',
    I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin',
    I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
    I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
    I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children,
    And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
    And what did you hear, my darling young one?
    I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin',
    Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world,
    Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin',
    Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin',
    Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin',
    Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter,
    Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley,
    And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    Oh, who did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
    Who did you meet, my darling young one?
    I met a young child beside a dead pony,
    I met a white man who walked a black dog,
    I met a young woman whose body was burning,
    I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow,
    I met one man who was wounded in love,
    I met another man who was wounded with hatred,
    And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    Oh, what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
    Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one?
    I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin',
    I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
    Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
    Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
    Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
    Where the executioner's face is always well hidden,
    Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
    Where black is the color, where none is the number,
    And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
    And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
    Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin',
    But I'll know my song well before I start singin',
    And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
    It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

    Corb Lund - Counterfeiters Blues

    he said drink deeply of the wine, my friend, breathe fully in the smoke
    and eat the fish that he conjured, this is the bread that jesus broke
    this is grape juice and cheap vodka, man, this isn't even wine
    i'm smokin shredded cardboard, eating sawdust baked with lime
    this is not the truth you tell me, but some terrible, evil joke
    sounds to me like the counterfeit blues have got you by the throat

    there seem to me an awful lot of charltans round here
    and hustlers, cheats and anglers, fixers, sharps and mutineers
    the factory and subterfuge and corporato cheat
    conspire to fast reduce us to the stamping of our feet
    the lords of mass producto mass product at quite a pace
    it won't be long these counterfeit blues'll run the whole damn place

    these notes that you've been paying with are a little bit too green
    the printing's off, the ink has got a polyester sheen
    your bill has grown too large and now you'll have to work it off
    and your snout will have to make its way from the far end of the trough
    you got suckered into tryin to make your make your money overnight
    looks to me like the counterfeit blues will be doggin you all of your life

    the worn out western hat i got no longer smells like horse
    and i can't afford to keep one around now that rooster's gone, of course
    i guess i've left it all behind me now except for when i write
    and sing ancestral praises of the ones who knew that life
    yes, years of rocka rolla have extracted quite a fee
    maybe them old counterfeit blues have been creepin up on me

    Robert Earl Keen - Lonely Feeling

    It's a long strecth of highway
    At midnight in New Mexico
    It's a small colored light
    That shines from your car radio
    It's the old motel owner
    Who sleeps on a cot
    And gives you the very last cup from his pot

    It's a lonely feeling, it's what you've got
    It's a lonely feeling, like it or not

    It's the crack in the sidewalk
    Right next to a pay telephone
    It's someone's recorder
    When you're hoping someone is home
    It's an hour to kill
    To do what you please
    But nobody's up for shooting the breeze

    It's a lonely feeling, it's like a disease
    It's a lonely feeling, you pray that it leaves

    It's three men from Chile
    Who are tired and they want to go home
    They've run out of money
    And they're stuck up in east Oregon
    So you give Ďem the small bit of change in your hand
    You try to speak Spanish but they don't understand

    It's a lonely feeling, it gets to a man
    It's a lonely feeling, that runs through the land

    It's your best friend from high school
    Who sees you and wishes you well
    You try to breakthrough
    But you run out of stories to tell
    So you bid him goodbye and you step into space
    There are so many questions that you cannot face

    It's a lonely feeling, taking his place
    It's a lonely feeling, you just can't erase

    It's statue of Jesus your grandmother had when she died
    All cracked and all yellow
    And you know you should throw it aside
    But you're growing religious, the older you get
    You haven't been saved
    But it could happen yet

    It's a lonely feeling, full of regret
    It's a lonely feeling, won't let you forget

    It's a bus stop, a street cop, an old dog, the new kid, a bum
    It's fright and rejected
    Neglected, and blind, deaf and dumb
    But you look in the mirror
    And you're still hanging in
    Itís there to remind you how lucky you've been

    It's a lonely feeling, now and again
    It's only a feeling that comes now and then

    Sweet Surrender by Sarah McLachlan



    It doesn't mean much
    it doesn't mean anything at all
    the life I've left behind me
    is a cold room
    I've crossed the last line
    from where I can't return
    where every step I took in faith
    betrayed me
    and led me from my home

    And sweet surrender
    is all that I have to give

    You take me in
    no questions asked
    you strip away the ugliness
    that surrounds me
    (who are you?)
    are you an angel?
    am I already that gone?
    I only hope
    that I won't disappoint you
    when I'm down here
    on my knees
    (who are you?)
    And sweet surrender
    is all that I have to give

    (who are you?)
    sweet surrender
    is all that I have to give

    And I don't understand
    by the touch of your hand
    I would be the one to fall

    I miss the little things
    I miss everything *about you*

    It doesn't mean much
    it doesn't mean anything at all
    the life I left behind me
    is a cold room

    (who are you?)
    And sweet surrender
    is all that I have to give

    (who are you?)
    And sweet surrender
    is all that I have to give
    Don't hate me because you're beautiful.

    One of them is this

    Somewhere I Belong - Linkin Park

    (When this began)
    I had nothing to say
    And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me
    (I was confused)
    And I let it all out to find
    That Iím not the only person with these things in mind
    (Inside of me)
    But all the vacancy the words revealed
    Is the only real thing that Iíve got left to feel
    (Nothing to lose)
    Just stuck/ hollow and alone
    And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

    [Chorus]
    I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real
    I wanna let go of the pain Iíve held so long
    (Erase all the pain till itís gone)
    I wanna heal, I wanna feel like Iím close to something real
    I wanna find something Iíve wanted all along
    Somewhere I belong

    And Iíve got nothing to say
    I canít believe I didnít fall right down on my face
    (I was confused)
    Looking everywhere only to find
    That itís not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
    (So what am I)
    What do I have but negativity
    íCause I canít justify the way, everyone is looking at me
    (Nothing to lose)
    Nothing to gain/ hollow and alone
    And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

    [Repeat Chorus]

    I will never know myself until I do this on my own
    And I will never feel anything else, until my wounds are healed
    I will never be anything till I break away from me
    I will break away, I'll find myself today

    [Repeat Chorus]

    I wanna heal, I wanna feel like Iím somewhere I belong
    I wanna heal, I wanna feel like Iím somewhere I belong
    Somewhere I belong

    Bright Eyes - At the Bottom of Everything

    So there was this woman and she was on an airplane, and she was flying to meet her fiancť seaming high above the largest ocean on planet earth. She was seated next to this man she had tried to start conversations, but the only thing she had really heard him say was to order his Bloody Mary. She was sitting there and she was reading this really arduous magazine article about a third world country that she couldnít even pronounce the name of. And she was feeling very bored and despondent. And then suddenly there was this huge mechanical failure and one of the engines gave out, and they started just falling thirty-thousand feet, and the pilots on the microphone and heís saying ďIím sorry, Iím sorry, oh my god... I'm sorryĒ and apologizing. And she looks at the man and says ďWhere are we going?Ē and he looks at her and he says ďWeíre going to a party. Itís a birthday party. Itís your birthday party. Happy birthday darling. We love you very, very, very, very, very, very, very much.Ē And then he starts humming this little tune, it kind of goes like this: 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4

    We must talk in every telephone
    Get eaten off the web
    We must rip out all the epilogues in the books that we have read
    And in the face of every criminal
    Strapped firmly to a chair
    We must stare, we must stare, we must stare

    We must take all of the medicines too expensive now to sell
    Set fire to the preacher who is promising us hell
    And in the ear of every anarchist that sleeps but doesnít dream
    We must sing, we must sing, we must sing

    Itíll go like this:

    While my mother waters plants
    My father loads his guns
    He says death will give us back to God
    Just like this setting sun is returned to this lonesome ocean

    And then they splashed into the deep blue sea
    It was a wonderful splash

    We must blend into the choir
    Sing as static with the whole
    We must memorize nine numbers and deny we have a soul
    And in this endless race for property and privilege to be won
    We must run, we must run, we must run

    We must hang up in the belfry
    Where the bats and moonlight laugh
    We must stare into a crystal ball and only see the past
    And in the caverns of tomorrow
    With just our flashlights and our love
    We must plunge, we must plunge, we must plunge

    And then weíll get down there, way down to the very bottom of everything
    And then weíll see it, oh weíll see it, weíll see it, weíll see it

    Oh my morning's coming back
    The whole worldís waking up
    All the city buses swimming past
    Iím happy just because
    I found out I am really no one

    I've gotten quite attached to this one lately,... I can relate to his pain.


    Mudvayne- Do what you do.

    Lips bleed from the rings,
    All these little bruises, the little things,
    That provoke the segregation.
    Lead the separation.
    Cage and clip the wings.
    Little noises, the little screams,
    That stop the operation.
    Conscious amputation.

    (Chorus 1)
    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you did to me.
    Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
    With nothing,
    With no one.
    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you've done to me.
    Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
    Now it's all over.

    (Verse 2)
    Like a heart that's lost its beat.
    A little boy, that softly weeps,
    Overwhelmed with emotion,
    Views burns through explosion.
    Lost the forest through the trees
    Little whispers, the little dreams,
    That sparked the recollection.
    Constant suffocation.

    (Chorus 2)
    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you did to me.
    Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
    With nothing,
    With no one.
    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you've done to me.
    Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
    Now it's all over.

    (Bridge 1)
    I can feel my life is changing,
    Changing.
    I can feel my heart is jaded,
    Jaded.

    Left the sticks,
    Left the stones,
    Words don't hurt,
    Mend the bones.
    I can feel my life is changing.

    (Chorus 3)
    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you did to me.
    Now I'm stuck in between a rock and nowhere,
    With nothing,
    With no one.
    Just do what you do,
    What you do, what you've done to me.
    Draw the chalk line around the scene, it's over,
    Now it's all over.

    (Ending/Bridge 2)
    Erase the past and leave the pain,
    Cleanse the wounds and forget the name.
    Lost the will, ran far away,
    So it's all over.

    Spread the ash and fill the grave,
    Lost the tongue and make my way.
    Do what you do and go away,
    Now it's all over.
    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!

    No Giving Up (Supernatural Season 1 OST) - Crossfade

    So you found out today your life's not the same
    Not quite as perfect as it was yesterday but
    When you were just getting in the groove
    Now you're faced with something new
    And I know it hurts and I know you feel torn
    But you never gave up this easily before
    So why do you choose today to give it all away

    Well it's not so bad y'all
    Together we all fall
    Just as long we get up we'll stand tall
    We shouldn't waste another day
    Thinking 'bout the things that we forgot to say

    I'm hittin' back y'all
    Kickin' these four walls
    Just as hard as I can til I can't crawl
    I won't waste another day
    With all these silly things
    Swimmin' in my brain

    [Chorus]
    There's no giving up now
    Do you really want to give this all away
    Can't you ever see things in a different way
    Somedays
    No giving up now
    Such a beautiful thing to throw away
    You should think things through
    Over and over again
    All over again

    So your scars fade away
    You soaked up the pain
    A better person 'cause you lived through those days
    And now you know what it's like to prove
    You can overcome anything that gets to you
    Well it's alright
    We're sayin' our goodbyes
    To the past and everything that ain't right
    We won't waste another day
    With all these silly things in our way

    [Chorus]

    I know we have given
    All that we can give
    When there's nothing to lean on
    Well, I remember this
    All we make of this lifetime
    Is always here within
    And remembering that's why
    We should never give in

    [Chorus]

    There's no giving up now
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    He is Legend - Mushroom River

    The trees are alive.
    They held their arms up high,
    And with a whisper they sighed.
    Your name against the wind.

    Your skin was surprised.
    Your hair grew out to cover,
    Your new blisters.
    I tried,
    To learn about your sin.

    I used to be you.
    And you used to be me.
    Her body is a drug.
    That's why you feel so crazy.
    We are the things that were,
    And we shall be them again.
    Although these were all dreams,
    you will never wake from them.

    That's when someone spoke.
    The crippled river decided,
    His legs were not broke.
    And stood up above me.

    I watched as he choked,
    And threw up all the ships,
    That had been buried.
    I woke,
    With you next to me.

    I used to be you.
    And you used to be me.
    Her body is a drug.
    That's why you feel so crazy.
    We are the things that were,
    And we shall be them again.
    Although these were all dreams,
    you will never wake from them.

    Hello, wanderer.
    I, wish you'd let me talk to her.
    I, have so much to say

    And hello, magic man.
    Please, teach me to stand again.
    There, there is so much to see.

    And hello, honey child.
    You sure can drive me wild.
    I wish you'd let me peak.

    And hello, strangest stranger.
    I hate to put your life in danger.
    You are the one I seek.

    You must have lost your mind.
    Scratched off the warning sign.
    I watched the dancers bow.
    Just as the ghost wolf howled.

    Down With The Sickness - Disturbed

    (Can you feel that?)
    (Oh sh*t)
    Ooh ah ah ah ah!
    Ooh ah ah ah ah!
    Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
    Broken your servant I kneel
    (Will you give in to me?)
    It seems what's left of my human side
    Is slowly changing ... in me
    (Will you give in to me?)

    Looking at my own reflection
    When suddenly it changes
    Violently it changes
    Oh no, There is no turning back now
    You've woken up the demon ... in me

    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You mother get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    You f***er get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

    I can see inside you, the sickness is rising
    Don't try to deny what you feel
    (Will you give in to me?)
    It seems that all that was good has died
    And is decaying in me
    (Will you give in to me?)

    It seems you're having some trouble
    In dealing with these changes
    Living with these changes
    Oh no, the world is a scary place
    Now that you've woken up the demon ... in me

    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You mother get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    You f***er get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

    And when I dream
    And when I dream
    And when I dream
    And when I dream!
    No mommy, don't do it again
    Don't do it again
    I'll be a good boy
    I'll be a good boy, I promise
    No mommy don't hit me
    Why did you have to hit me like that mommy?
    Don't do it! You're hurting me
    Why did you have to be such a b***h?
    Why don't you,
    Why don't you f*** off and die?
    Why can't you just f*** off and die?
    Why can't you just leave here and die?
    Never stick your hand in my face again b***h
    F*** YOU!!!
    I don't need this sh*t
    You stupid sadistic abusive f***ing w**re
    Would you like to see how it feels mommy?
    Here it comes, get ready to die!

    Ooh ah ah ah ah!
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You mother get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    You f***er get up
    Come on get down with the sickness
    Mad-ness has now come over me
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O
