    "Land of Confusion" by Genesis

    I must've dreamed a thousand dreams
    Been haunted by a million screams
    But I can hear the marching feet
    They're moving into the street.

    Now did you read the news today
    They say the dangers gone away
    But I can see the fires still alight
    There burning into the night.

    Theres too many men
    Too many people
    Making too many problems
    And not much love to go round
    Cant you see
    This is a land of confusion.

    This is the world we live in
    And these are the hands were given
    Use them and lets start trying
    To make it a place worth living in.

    Ooh superman where are you now
    When everythings gone wrong somehow
    The men of steel, the men of power
    Are losing control by the hour.

    This is the time
    This is the place
    So we look for the future
    But theres not much love to go round
    Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.

    This is the world we live in
    And these are the hands were given
    Use them and lets start trying
    To make it a place worth living in.

    I remember long ago -
    Ooh when the sun was shining
    Yes and the stars were bright
    All through the night
    And the sound of your laughter
    As I held you tight
    So long ago -

    I wont be coming home tonight
    My generation will put it right
    Were not just making promises
    That we know, well never keep.

    Too many men
    Theres too many people
    Making too many problems
    And not much love to go round
    Cant you see
    This is a land of confusion.

    Now this is the world we live in
    And these are the hands were given
    Use them and lets start trying
    To make it a place worth fighting for.

    This is the world we live in
    And these are the names were given
    Stand up and lets start showing
    Just where our lives are going to.

    Ok my final one for tonight...I'm listening to it right now...(forgive me downstairs neighbor) This one is how I feel...right now!


    Nice Time - Alana Davis
    (Bob Marley remake)

    Long time we no have no nice time:
    You- doo-doo-doo, yeah: think about that!
    Long time we no have no nice time:
    You-doo-doo-doo, yeah: think about that!

    This is my heart:
    To rock you steady;
    I'll give you love
    any time you ready.
    This little heart in me
    Just won't let me be;
    I'm just rockin' now;
    Won't you rock with me?

    Long time we no have no nice time:
    You-doo-doo-doo, yeah: think about that!

    This is my heart:
    To rock you steady;
    I'll give you love
    The time you're you ready.
    This little heart in me
    Just won't let me be;
    I'm just-a rock this now;
    Won't you rock wid me?

    A long - long - long - long time we no have no nice time:
    You-doo-doo-doo, yeah: think about that!)
    for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.

    Pearl Jam, Indifference

    I will light the match this mornin', so I won't be alone
    Watch as she lies silent, for soon night will be gone
    Oh, I will stand arms outstretched, pretend I'm free to roam
    Oh, I will make my way, through, one more day in Hell...
    How much difference does it make
    How much difference does it make, yeah...

    I will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
    Oh, I'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired
    Oh, I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
    Hey, I won't change direction, and I won't change my mind
    How much difference does it make
    Mmm, how much difference does it make...how much difference...

    I'll swallow poison, until I grow immune
    I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
    How much difference
    How much difference
    How much difference does it make
    How much difference does it make
    Still waters run deep.

    Tom Waits - Walk Away

    Dot King was whittled from the bone of Cain
    with a little drop of poison in the red, red blood
    She need a way to turn around the bend
    She said I want to walk away and start over again.
    There are things I done I can't erase
    I want to look in the mirror, see another face
    I said "never" but I'm doing it again
    I want to walk away, start over again.

    No more rain
    No more roses
    On my way, slake my thirst in a cool, cool pond.

    There's a winner in every place
    There's a heart that's beating in every page
    The beginning of it starts at the end
    When it's time to walk away and start over again.
    Weather is murder at a hundred and three
    William Ray shot Corabell Lee
    A yellow dog knows when he has sinned
    You want to walk away and start over again.

    No more rain
    No more roses
    On my way, shaking my thirst in a cool cool pond.

    Cooper told Maui the whole block is gone
    They're dying for jewelry, money, and clothes
    I always get out of the trouble I'm in
    I want to walk away, start over again.
    I left my bible by the side of the road
    Carve my initials in an old dead tree
    I'm going away but I'm going to be back when
    It's time to walk away and start over again.

    These are the lyrics that fit me most today lol

    "Fallen - Sarah Mclachlan"

    Heaven bend to take my hand
    And lead me through the fire
    Be the long awaited answer
    To a long and painful fight

    Truth be told I've tried my best
    But somewhere along the way
    I got caught up in all there was to offer
    And the cost was so much more than I could bear

    Though I've tried, I've fallen...
    I have sunk so low
    I messed up
    Better I should know
    So don't come round here
    And tell me I told you so...

    We all begin with good intent
    Love was raw and young
    We believed that we could change ourselves
    THe past could be undone
    But we carry on our backs the burden
    Time always reveals
    In the lonely light of morning
    In the wound that would not heal
    It's the bitter taste of losing everything
    That I've held so dear.

    I've fallen...
    I have sunk so low
    I messed up
    Better I should know
    So don't come round here
    And tell me I told you so...

    Heaven bend to take my hand
    Nowhere left to turn
    I'm lost to those I thought were friends
    To everyone I know
    Oh they turn their heads embarassed
    Pretend that they don't see
    But it's one missed step
    One slip before you know it
    And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

    Though I've tried, I've fallen...
    I have sunk so low
    I messed up
    Better I should know
    So don't come round here
    And tell me I told you so...

    And I always feel these lyrics, no matter when this song comes on

    "It's A Hit - We are scientists"

    I should've known that this would happen from the start
    This kind of function's gonna have to fall apart
    I guess before I would've sworn that we were friends
    Maybe this problem points towards some larger trend

    But I still don't understand
    What this whole thing's about
    And all the words that you said
    Are somehow stuck in my mouth
    And this was going so well
    But I don't know what I did
    All I really can tell, is
    I've been hit
    I've been hit
    I've been hit

    Well there's only so much drama I can stand
    And this is just about as far as I will bend
    So get your hands of my lepel
    Because I think it's time to go
    You oughta know better.
    You know,
    You oughta know

    But I still don't understand
    What this whole thing's about
    And all the words that you said
    Are somehow stuck in my mouth
    And this was going so well
    But I don't know what I did
    All I really can tell, is
    I've been hit
    I've been hit
    I've been hit

    As I was falling down the stairs
    And out the door
    I guess I heard you yell my name
    But I'm not sure
    You know before I could've sworn that we were friends
    But that's how these problems always seem to end

    But I still don't understand
    What this whole thing's about
    When all the words that you said
    Are somehow stuck in my mouth
    And this was going so well
    But I don't know what I did
    All I really can tell
    Is that I always get hit

    And I still don't understand
    What this whole thing's about
    And all the words that you said
    Are somehow stuck in my mouth
    I guess I might take it back
    But I'm not sure what I did
    All I know about that, is
    I've been hit
    I've been hit
    I've been hit

    Killah Priest - B.i.b.l.e. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)

    Life is a test many quest the universe
    And through my research, I felt the joy and the hurt
    The first shall be last and the last shall be first
    The basic instructions before leaving earth

    Knowledge this wisdom, this goes back when I was twelve
    I loved doing right but I was trapped in hell
    Had mad ideas, sad eyes and tears
    Years of fears, but yo my foes couldn't bear
    I searched for the truth since my youth
    And went to church since birth, but it wasn't worth the loot
    that I was paying, plus the praying
    I didn't like staying cuz of busy-bodies and dizzy hotties
    That the preacher had souped up with lies
    Had me cooped up lookin at loot, butt, and thighs
    Durin the service, he swallowed up the poor
    And after they heard this, they wallowed on the floor
    But I ignored, and explored my history that was untold
    And watched mysteries unfold
    And dropped a jewel like Solomon, but never followed men
    cause if you do your brain is more hollow than
    Space oblivia, or the abyss
    With no trace of trivia, left with the hiss
    Does it pay to be deaf, dumb and blind?
    From a slave we was kept from the mind
    And from the caves he crept from behind
    And what he gave, was the sect of the swine
    When the bible, it condemned the pig
    I don't mean to pull your hems or flip your wigs
    But we used to wear a turban, but now we're in the urban
    No more wearing beanies and dress like a genie
    No hocus pocus cause I focus on the facts
    And put it on the tracks and brought it through the wax
    I speak on Jacob, it might take up some time
    And too much knowledge, it might break up the rhyme
    I did it anyway just to wake up the mind
    of those who kiss stones or prays on the carpet
    Those who sit home, or sell books by the market
    Need to chill and get their mind revived
    For years religion did nothing but divide
    The basic instructions before leaving earth

    I strolled through the books of Job to unfold
    And open bibles, instead of hoping on revivals
    Calling on His name and screaming hallelujah
    when he hardly knew ya, that's how the devil's fooled ya
    See look into my eyes brethren, that's the lies of a Reverand
    Why should you die to go to heaven?
    The Earth is already in space, the bible I embrace
    A difficult task I had to take
    I studied till my eyes was swollen, and only arose when
    I found out that we were the chosen
    I deal with the truth, and build with the youth
    And teach my son as he kneels on the stoop
    Son, life is a pool of sin, corrupted with foolish men
    and women with wicked minds, who build picket signs
    to legalize abortion, the evil eye distortion
    I quiz Son with my wisdom
    Before I converted, I was perverted, and knowledge was asserted
    The study of wisdom, I perferred it
    The understanding, it gave me mental freedom
    I even learnt Caucasians were really the Tribe of Edam
    The white image, of Christ, is really Cesare Borgia
    and uhh, the second son of Pope Alexander
    The Sixth of Rome, and once the picture was shown
    That's how the devils tricked my dome
    I prophesized to save a man, but no one gave a damn
    for my nation - the seed of Abraham
    Blessed with the tongue of Hebrew
    Now we're strung on needles, and some are plungin evils
    So study and be wise in these days of darkness
    Peace to my nephew Marcus

    "Is There Something I Should Know" - "Duran Duran"

    Please, please, tell me now, please, please, tell me now,
    Please, please, tell me now, please, please, tell me now.

    I made a break, I run out yesterday,
    Tried to find my mountain hideaway - maybe next year, maybe no go.
    I know you're watching me every minute of the day, yeah.
    I've seen the signs and the looks and the pictures
    They give your game away, yeah.
    There's a dream that strings the road with broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say:

    Please, please, tell me now, is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say that would make you come my way?
    Do you feel the same 'cause you don't let it show.

    People stare and cross the road from me
    And jungle drums they all clear the way for me,
    Can you read my mind, can you see in the snow?
    And fiery demons all dance when you walk through that door.
    Don't say you're easy on me, you're about as easy as a nuclear war.
    There's a dream that strings the road with broken glass for us to hold,
    And I cut so far before I had to say.

    Please, please, tell me now, is there something I should know?...
    Please, please, tell me now, is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say, try to make you turn my way?
    Please, please, tell me now, can you see what makes me blow?
    Can you see how much I die every time it passes by?
    Please, please, tell me now, what it takes to make you show?
    Is there something I should know, is there something I should say?

    For me it's gotta be either Leonard Cohen's "When you're not feeling holy your loneliness says that you've sinned"

    or else from Selig,

    ...Dort draußen alles dreht sich
    Still um nix herum
    Und ich male deine Schatten
    An jeder Wand

    ...Es kommt so anders als mann denkt,
    Herz vergeben, herz verschenkt

    ...Ich nätte mir ein Bettbezug
    Aus die Zeit die wir hatten
    Und trink mir alte Wunden an
    So tief und allein...

    So... Dark Razor? Any other German speakers actually get any of that?

    You might've guessed it'd be multilingual with me... sorry!

    This one springs to mind for me as well:

    Если вы не живете, то вам и не умирать (Nikitin)

    Oh, and if Jennifer didn't say "Candy Says" by Velvet Underground, there's something wrong!
    Ils se d�merdent, les mecs: trop bon, trop con..................................MY BLOG!

    "When it all comes down to dust
    I will kill you if I must
    I will help you if I can" - Leonard Cohen
