"What if all the world's inside of your head
Just creations of your own?
Your devils and your gods
All the living and the dead
And you really are alone
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find the woods
While you're hiding in the trees"
Nine Inch Nails - Right where it belongs
"We're damaged people
By subtleties that we are not aware of
Playing out forever
These games that we once thought we would be scared of"
Depeche Mode - Damaged people
"She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins"
Radiohead - Fake plastic trees
Those are not my favorites, but I love them .-. Can't remember all the lyrics I love now to rate them XD
some luv hurtz lyrcis;
"I smoke your brand of cigarettes
And pray that you might give me a call
I lie around in bed all day just staring at the walls
Hanging round bars at night wishing I had never been born
And give myself to anyone who wants to take me home"
"When I think about it I know that I was never held or even cared
The more I think about it the less that I was able to share with you
I try to reach for you, I can almost feel you
You're nearly here and then
"Why should I feel sad
For what I never had
Nothing equals nothing"
Elton John & Ray Charles - Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
(Genius Loves Company 2004 EMI Records Ltd)
What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you're not there
It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word
Now this is gonna be a fun thread
Five For Fighting - 100 Years
"15, there's still time for you.
Time to buy and time to lose.
15, there's never a wish better than this.
When you only got 100 years to live."
Trapt - Still Frame
"Believe me, I'm just as lost as you."
Rise Against - Paper Wings
"Is this the life that you lead, or the life that's lead for you?
Will you take the road that's been laid out before you?
Will we cross paths somewhere else tonight?"
Rise Against - The Good Left Undone
"All because of you, I believe in angels.
Not the kind with wings, no not the kind with halos.
The kind that bring you home when home becomes a strange place.
I'll follow your voice. All you have to do is shout it out."
Now some funny ones
Green Day - Longview
"When masturbation's lost its fun, you're fucking lazy."
Blink-182 - Degenerate
"Don't like hesh, don't like rap. Kicked ol' Sally cause she's fat.
I'm a jerk, I'm a punk, took a shower cause I stunk.
Smoked a bong, killed a cat, had my nuts attacked by rats.
Dad got nude, I wore a thong, for a hobby I make bombs."
Rise Against - Hero of War
She walked through bullets and haze
I asked her to stop
I begged her to stay
But she pressed on
So I lifted my gun
And I fired away
And the shells jumped through the smoke
And into the sand
That the blood now had soaked
She collapsed with a flag in her hand
A flag white as snow
A hero of war
Is that what they see
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it's a flag that I love
It's the only flag I trust
"Don’t you worry boy
Life will come and find you
You’re going to blow their minds
Show them all a thing or two"

NOFX - Drugs Are Good
"Drugs are good. They make you do things that you know you not should.
And when you do them people think that you're cool.
When you do them people think that you're cool."
Blai with Rise Against FTW!!!
Kiss From a Rose
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you
The stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the gray,
The Breaking of the Fellowship( In Dreams)
When the cold of winter comes
Starless night will cover day
In the veiling of the sun
We will walk in bitter rain
But in dreams
I can hear your name
And in dreams
We will meet again
When the seas and mountains fall
And we come, to end of days
In the dark I hear a call
Calling me there,
I will go there
And back again
I'd like to post something brazilian, but I don't know if I can translate without losing the poetry .-.
Desafinado Tom Jobim
When I'm about to sing, you won't let me
And always use the same complaint
You say that I untune, that I can't sing
You're so beautiful... but your beauty can be wrong
If you say that I untune, my love
Be aware that this is painful to me
Only privileged people has a hearing like yours
I only own the one God gave me
If you insist in classify
My behavior as anti-musical
I, although lying, has to argue
That this is Bossa Nova
This is very natural
What you don't know
And don't even sense
Is that the tuneless also has a heart
I took your picture at my RolleyFlex
And it revealed your enormous ingratitude
But you only can't talk like this about my love
It's the biggest you will ever find
You and your music forgot the substantial
That in the chest of a tuneless
Deep in the chest of a tuneless, beats silent
In the chest of a tuneless also beats a heart
Prooreader needed xP

"Hold up, hold on, don't be scared
You'll never change what's been and gone.
May your smile shine on, don't be scared
Your destiny may keep you warm.
Cos all of the stars have faded away,
Just try not to worry, you'll see them some day.
Take what you need, and be on your way,
And stop crying your heart out."
Oasis - Stop Crying Your Heart Out, Heathen Chemistry
Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go to a lake of fire and fry
Won't see them again 'till the 4th of July

Park Hyo-shin - Like Me (나처럼)
I wonder if you're ok now
I wonder if you think of me
Even though I know its no use now
I keep wanting and wanting again
Like me, just like me who still loves you
Just like me who cant leave you
I hope you will have a little bit of me remaing in your heart
I hope you will...
That day when I let you go
I didnt even show you my tears when I turned back
because all of this was for you
But then again,
Like me, just like me who still loves you
Just like me who cant change,
I hope you will have a little bit of me remaining in your heart
I hope you will...
I love you like a fat kid love cake
--21 Questions (50 Cent)
We've got white-collar people trying to grab our style
Saying we're too nasty and we're 2 Live
Corrupted politicians playing games
Bringing us down to boost their fame
They must be joking thinking we will fall
But they're like flies movin' the wall
We stand tall from beginning to end
With the help from fans and all our friends
Freedom of speech will never die
For us to help, our ancestors died
Don't keep thinking that we will quit
We'll always stand and never sit
We're 2 live, 2 black, 2 strong
Doing the right thing, and not the wrong
So listen up, y'all, to what we say
We won't be banned in the U.S.A.!
--Banned in the USA (2 Live Crew)
Take a look to the sky just before you die
It's the last time you will
--For Whom the Bell Tolls (Metallica)
Did it excite you to take somebody's life
Did you think about the people
Who stay behind and cry about it
The coach is at the platform
Come along and step inside now
'Cause it's time to pay the piper
Got you ticket and your ridin' tonight
--Bloody Train (Siam Shade)
Rain on the scarecrow, blood on the plow
This land fed a nation, this land made me proud
And, son, I'm just sorry they're just memories for you now
--Rain on the Scarecrow (John Mellencamp)
The photograph reflects,
Every streetlight a reminder
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night, deserves a quiet night
Did you hear the '59 Sound coming through on grandmother's radio?
Did you hear the rattling chains in the hospital walls?
Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over?
Did you hear your favorite song one last time?
--The '59 Sound (the Gaslight Anthem)
