"Your favorite lyrics and why?"
#1
For me my life has always been about learning my lessons and trying to be as honest as I can. I fucked up a lot in my life so as the saying goes, I aint no saint. I try to always help my brothers and do the right thing. God knows I can fuck this up and I do. When I get down because of shit happening around me I like to listen to this track by Gangstarr.

Moment of Truth/ by: Gangstarr

They say it's lonely at the top in whatever you do
You always gotta watch motherfuckers around you
Nobody's invincible no plan is foolproof
We all must meet our moment of truth

The same sheisty cats that you hang with and do your thang with
could set you up and wet you up nigga peep the language
It's universal, you play with fire it may hurt you
or burn you, lessons are blessings you should learn through
Let's face facts, although MC's lace tracks
it doesn't mean behind the scenes there ain't no dirt to trace back
That goes for all of us, there ain't nobody to trust
It's like sabotage, it's got me ready to bust
But I can't jeapordize, what I have done up to this point
So I'ma get more guys, to help me run the whole joint
Cultivate, multiply, motivate, or else we'll die
You know I be the masterof the who what where and why
See when you're shinin, some chumps'll wanna dull ya
Always selfish jealous punks, will wanna pull ya
down, just like some shellfish in a bucket
cause they love it, to see your ass squirm like a worm
But just as you'll receive what is comin to you
Everybody else is gonna get theirs too
I ain't no saint, therefore I cannot dispute
That everyone must meet their moment of truth

Actions have reactions, don't be quick to judge
You may not know the harships people don't speak of
It's best to step back, and observe with couth
For we all must meet our moment of truth

Sometimes you gotta dig deep, when problems come near
Don't fear things get severe for everybody everywhere
Why do bad things happen, to good people?
Seems that life is just a constant war between good and evil
The situation that I'm facin, is mad amazin
to think such problems can arise from minor confrontations
Now I'm contemplatin in my bedroom pacin
Dark clouds over my head, my heart's racin
Suicide? Nah, I'm not a foolish guy
Don't even feel like drinking, or even gettin high
Cause all that's gonna do really, is accelerate
the anxieties that I wish I could alleviate
But wait, I've been through a whole lot of other shit, before
So I oughta be able, to withstand some more
But I'm sweatin though, my eyes are turnin red and yo
I'm ready to lose my mind but instead I use my mind
I put down the knife, and take the bullets out my nine
My only crime, was that I'm too damn kind
And now some skanless motherfuckers wanna take what's mine
But they can't take the respect, that I've earned in my lifetime
And you know they'll never stop the furious force of my rhymes
So like they say, every dog has it's day
And like they say, God works in a mysterious way
So I pray, remembering the days of my youth
As I prepare to meet my moment of truth

Yo I got one lyric pointed at your head for start
Another one, is pointed at your weak ass heart
Now if I pull the trigger, on these fully loaded lines
You're gonna wish I woulda pulled a black nine, I mack dimes
Crack the spines of the fake gangsters
Yeah the bitin triflin niggaz, and the studio pranksters
Yo lookin at the situation plainly: will you remain G?
Or will you be looked upon strangely?
I reign as the articulator, with the greater data
Revolvin on the TASCAM much doper than my last jam
While others struggle to juggle, tricky metaphots
I explore more, to expose the core
A lot of MC's, act stupid to me
And we have yet to see, if they can match our longevity
But anyway it's just another day
Another fake jack I slay with my spectac' rap display
Styles, smooth but rugged -- you can't push or shove it
You dig it and you dug it cause like money you love it
The king of monotone, with my own throne
Righteously violent prone my words bring winds like cyclones
Stormin your hideout, blockin out your sunlight
Your image and your business, were truly not done right
Throw up your he-Allah-I now, divine saviors
You got no hand skills there's no security to save ya
No pager, no celly, no drop top Benz-y
I came to bring your phone hip-hop, to an ending
My art of war will leave you sore from the abuse
Cause you must meet your moment of truth

That Shit is The Truth, Like a Motherfucker.

Here is one of my Favorite Lyrics...

"Never in a Scandal and Never caught Scheming,
Ya knew Pu was dope ever since I was Semen,
Swimming in my Daddy's Big Nuts,
But Now I'm Scoopin Girls with the Big Ole Butts"

Well, I don't know if these are my favorite lyrics ever, but figured I'd post them because I like them and because they may help explain why I chose the username I did (Basically, I like the song musically, as well as what it has to say). I guess my religious standing isn't exactly in consensus with the populus, and I agree with what this song says if you interpret the lyrics literally. However, I think what this song is saying figuratively is that don't let what you believe make you think you're better than someone else. In other words, let your actions speak louder than your words, and don't pretend what you are as a person. Find your own truths, and just make sure what you do and what you say are in total agreement. Also, make sure you stay true to what you believe, regardless of what others think.



Simon Says - Dyslexic Smile

I woke up dry, pattern-lie, in a daze
The lights turned out, time turned on, processed and packaged...

Dead!!!

Spoon-fed your rhyme of what's right, can't discuss
We spend our lives bent on our knees following blind

You say it's all okay
Repent the sins away
Just give your life and he'll save you
Won't accept my tatoos, earrings or fucked up shoes,
You hypocrite denominational waste...

Save your face, save your style, save your fake dyslexic smile
Show us all that Jesus Christ is on your side
Take your faith, take your pride, shove your condescending line
I don't give a shit about your fucking God

I bought what I was sold
I sold my soul
Don't ever tell me to take off my hat
Suck my respect...

Save your face, save your style, save your fake dyslexic smile
Take your faith, take your pride, shove your condescending...
Shelve my life

Save your face, save your style, save your fake dyslexic smile
Show us all that Jesus Christ is on your side
Take your faith, take your pride, shove your condescending line
I don't give a shit about your fucking God

ok i have a few songs i like and dif. situations about why i like them ...i will post them as i get the chance with a story about why i like the lyrics ....i like to put on my portable cd player and strap my helmet on and hit the highway
this song is by GODSMACK...the title is AWAKE....the reason i like this song is the music is real choppy style and it really gets me pumpped up and ready to just get on my motorcycle and do some highspeed driving ... when i am on the highway and by myself this song helps me remember that i am awake and alive ..and i just watch the world pass by i shortened the lyrics as the song repeats the chourus a few times an i fig i would just include the main stuff you can get the idea of the entire song from this........

----------------------------------
Wait another minute.
Can't you see what this pain has fucking done to me?
I'm alive and still kickin'.
What you see I can't see...
and maybe you'll think before you speak.
I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you.
I'm alive I told you.
I'm awake swallowing you.
Take another second.
Turn your back on me...
and make believe that you're always happy.
It's safe to say you're never alive.
A big part of you has died.
And by the way...
I hope you're satisfied.
I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you.
I'm alive I told you.
I'm awake swallowing you.
i'm alive because of you i'm awake
Tearing it back unveiling me.
Taking a step back so I can breathe.
Hear the silence about to break.
Fear resistance when I'm awake.

Skid Row - Slave to The Grind

True in every aspect of the song. I understand it like "Don't fuck around and follow.. Lead"

--------------------
You got me forced to crack my lids in two
I'm still stuck inside the rubber room
I gotta punch the clock that leads the blind
I'm just another gear in the assembly line - oh no

The noose gets tighter around my throat
But I ain't at the end of my rope 'cause
I won't be the one left behind
Can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Get it?

A routine injection, a lethal dose
But my day in the sun ain't even close
There's no need to waste your prayers on me
You better mark my words 'cause
I'm history
Yes indeed

You might beg for mercy to get by
But I'd rather tear this thorn from my side 'cause

I won't be the one left behind
You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind

They swallowed their daggers by turning their tricks
They tore my intentions apart brick by brick
I'm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

Tear down the rat racial slime
You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind

I said slave to the grind
Slave to the grind
Slave to the grind

I'm a peaceful person, I would love to see peace and true equality among all humans. There is enough food produced in the State of California alone to feed the entire world once a day. Most of it rotts in isles or in cabinates while other people's stomachs explode. Some of my favorite lyrics relate to this side of my brain. War is vain, lies and mind control, 1984, all that stuff.

I've had a lot of thoughts about all these things, the health care system, food, people in my opinon should be born equal. Health care and food should be provided becase they are human and for no other reason. There are enough resources to make it happen, but there are too many people who won't let it happen. It's a basic human trait. All I want is more. So t will never happen, but everyday I hope and pray for change.

Some of my all time favorite lyrics:

"Clockers born, starring at an empty plate, momma's torn hands cover her sunken face, We hungry but the belly full, the structure is set you'll never change it with a ballot poll."

Down Rodeo- Rage Against the Machine.

"How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind."

Blowin' in the Wind- Bob Bylan

"Weapons not homes, not food, not shoes, not need just feed the war canibal animal, I walk to the corner that used to be a library line up to the mind cemetary now. What we don't know keeps their contracts alive and moving, they don't gotta burn the books they just remove them, while arms wharehouses fill as quick as the cells, rally round the family, pocket full of shells."

Bulls on Parade- RATM

"Evil man make me kill you, evil man make you kill me, evil man make me kill you even though we're only families apart"

Jimi Hendrix- Machine Gunn

"Politicians hide their tails away, they only started the war, why should they go to fight, they leave that to the poor"

War Pigs- Black Sabbath

"See through the news and the views that twist reality, enough I call the bluff f- mainfest destiny"

Bombtrack- RATM

"Rolling Down Rodeo with a shot gun these people ain't seen a brown skined man since their grand parents bought one"

Down Rodeo- RATM

There are lyrics that I like just because they're great lyrics:

"Castles made of sand, slip into the sea... eventually."

Castles made of Sand- Jimi Hendrix

"Don't worry about a thing, 'cause every little thing gonna be alright, woke up this morning smiled with the rising sun, three little birds, sit by my doorstep singing sweet songs of meledies pure and true singing, This is my message to you ou ou, Don't worry about a thing, 'cause every little thing gonna be alright."

Bob Marley

"After all the jacks are in their boxes
and the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
footsteps dressed in red
And the wind whispers Mary
A broom is drearily sweeping
up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind, it cries Mary
The traffic lights, they turn, uh, blue tomorrow
and shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sags down stream
'cause the life that lived is,
is dead
And the wind screams Mary
Uh-will the wind ever remember
the names it has blow in the past?
And with this crutch, its old age, and its wisdom
it whispers no, this will be the last
And the wind cries Mary"

The Wind Cries Mary- Jimi Hendrix

I have more but I'll stop now.:)

I've liked Eminem since the first time I heard him. I can relate to some of his songs and to the sick sense of humor portrayed by his lyrics. So, here's the song I picked of his:

Chorus: Eminem (repeat 4X)

That's why they call me Slim Shady (I'm Back)
I'm Back (I'm Back) [SLIM SHADY!] I'm Back

[Eminem]
I murder a rhyme one word at a time
You never, heard of a mind as perverted as mine
You better, get rid of that nine, it ain't gonna help
What good's it gonna do against a man that strangles himself?
I'm waitin for hell like hell shit I'm anxious as hell
Manson, you're safe in that cell, be thankful it's jail
I used to be my mommy's little angel at twelve
Thirteen I was puttin shells in a gauge on a shelf
I used to, get punked and bullied on my block
'til I cut a kitten's head off and stuck it in this kid's mailbox
{"Mom! MOM!"} I used to give a - fuck, now I could give a fuck less
What do I think of suc-cess? It sucks, too much press I'm stressed
Too much stares two breasts, too upset
It's just too much mess, I guess I must just blew up quick (yes)
Grew up quick (no) was raised right
Whatever you say is wrong, whatever I say is right
You think of my name now whenever you say, "Hi"
Became a commodity because I'm W-H-I-
-T-E, cuz MTV was so friendly to me
Can't wait 'til Kim sees me
Now is it worth it? Look at my life, how is it perfect?
Read my lips bitch, what, my mouth isn't workin?
You hear this finger? Oh it's upside down
Here, let me turn this motherfucker up right now

Chorus

[Eminem]
I take each individual degenerate's head and reach into it
just to see if he's influenced by me if he listens to music
And if he feeds into this shit he's an innocent victim
and becomes a puppet on the string of my tennis shoe
{*vocal scratches*} My name is Slim Shady
I been crazy way before radio didn't play me
The sensational {*vocal scratch "Back is the incredible!"*}
With Ken Kaniff, who just finds the men edible
It's Ken Kaniff on the, internet
Tryin to, lure your kids with him, into bed
It's a, sick world we live in these days
"Slim for Pete's sakes put down Christopher Reeve's legs!"
Geez, you guys are so sensitive
"Slim it's a touchy subject, try and just don't mention it"
Mind with no sense in it, fried to get so frenetic
whose eyes get so squinted, I'm blind from smokin 'em
with my windows tinted, with nine limos rented
Doin lines of coke in 'em, with a bunch of guys hoppin out
all high and indo scented {*inhales, exhales*}
And that's where I get my name from, that's why they call me

Chorus

[Eminem]
I take seven [kids] from [Columbine], stand 'em all in line
Add an AK-47, a revolver, a nine
a Mack-11 and it oughta solve the problem of mine
and that's a whole school of bullies shot up all at one time
Cause (I'mmmm) Shady, they call me as crazy
as the world was over this whole Y2K thing
And by the way, N'Sync, why do they sing?
Am I the only one who realizes they stink?
Should I dye my hair pink and care what y'all think?
Lip sync and buy a bigger size of earrings?
It's why I tend to block out when I hear things
Cause all these fans screamin is makin my ears ring (AHHHH!!!)
So I just, throw up a middle finger and let it linger
longer than the rumor that I was stickin it to Christina
Cause if I ever stuck it to any singer in showbiz
it'd be Jennifer Lopez, and Puffy you know this!
I'm sorry Puff, but I don't give a fuck if this chick was my own mother
I still fuck her with no rubber and cum inside her
and have a son and a new brother at the same time
and just say that it ain't mine, what's my name?

Chorus

[Eminem {*vocal scratching*}]
Guess who's b-back, back
Gue-gue-guess who's back (Hi mom!)
{*scratch*} Guess who's back
{*scratch*} Gue {*scratch*} guess who's back
D-12 {*scratch*} Guess who's back
Gue, gue-gue-gue, guess who's back
Dr. Dre {*scratch*} Guess who's back
Back back {*scratch*} back
{*scratch*}

How Great Thou Art

Oh Lord my God when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
To take me home
What joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim my God how great Thou art

Then sings my soul my savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
Then sings my soul my savior God to Thee
How great Thou art how great Thou art.




These words help to keep me firmly rooted in my faith...through many trials, tribulations and tragedies. They help to shed light on my spiritual journey and remind me to give thanks to my GOD for the gains that i have made in every worthwhile endeavor that I have chosen.

DU RIECHST SO GUT

du riechst so gut
ich finde dich
- so gut
ich steig dir nach
du riechst so gut
gleich hab ich dich

Du riechst so gut
du riechst so gut
ich geh dir hinterher
du riechst so gut
ich finde Dich
- so gut
ich fass dich an
du riechst so gut
jetzt hab ich dich

Du riechst so gut
du riechst so gut
ich geh dir hinterher

Der Wahnsinn
ist nur eine scHydromaxale Brücke
die Ufer sind Vernunft und Trieb
ich steig dir nach
das Sonnenlicht den Geist verwirrt
ein blindes Kind das vorwärts kriecht
weil es seine Mutter riecht

Ich finde dich

Die Spur ist frisch und auf die Brücke
tropft dein Schweiss dein warmes Blut
ich seh dich nicht
ich riech dich nur Ich spüre Dich
ein Raubtier das vor Hunger schreit
wittere ich dich meilenweit

Du riechst so gut
du riechst so gut
ich geh dir hinterher
du riechst so gut
ich finde dich
- so gut
ich steig dir nach
du riechst so gut
gleich hab ich dich

Jetzt hab ich dich

Ich warte bis es dunkel ist
dann fass ich an die nasse Haut
verrate mich nicht
oh siehst du nicht die Brücke brennt
hör auf zu schreien und wehre dich nicht
weil sie sonst auseinander bricht

Du riechst so gut
du riechst so gut
ich geh dir hinterher

:D

This is a truely wonderful song:

Steve Miller Band - I Want To Make The World Turn Around


I don't want to live in a world of darkness
I want to live in a world of light
I don't want to live in a world that's heartless
I want to live in a world of sight
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Living in a world of justice
Living in a world of shame
Living in a world of freedom
Living in a world of pain
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Turn the darkness into light
Turn the hunger into life
Turn the wrong into right
Put an end to the strife
Turn the blindness into sight
Save a human life
Make the world turn around

I want to live in a world of gladness
I want to know what your heart is made of
Don't want to live in a world of sadness
I want to live in a world of love
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Living in a world of justice
Living in a world of light
Living in a world of freedom
Living in a world of sight

I want to send a message
To every boy and girl
I want to send a message
About the world
We got to build it up
Stop tearing it down
We got to build it up
Make the world turn around

I like songs that tell an interesting story...like a little morality play.

The Road Goes on Forever
(Robert Earl Keen)

Sherry was a waitress at the only joint in town.
She had a reputation as a girl who'd been around.
On Main street after midnight, a brand new pack of cig's,
A fresh one hanging from her lips, a beer between her legs.
She rides down to the river, and meets with all her friends.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.


Sonny was a loner, older than the rest.
He was goin' in the Navy, but couldn't pass the test.
So he hung around town, he sold a little pot.
The law caught wind of Sonny and one day he got caught.
But he was back in business when they set him free again.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

Sonny's playin' eight-ball in the joint where Sherry works
When some drunken out-of-towner put his hand up Sherry's skirt.
Sonny took his pool cue, laid the drunk out on the floor.
Stuffed a dollar in her tip jar, walked on out the door.
She's running right behind him, reaching for his hand.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

They jumped into his pickup, Sonny jammed it down in gear.
Sonny looked at Sherry, said "Let's get on out of here".
The stars were high above them, the moon was in the east.
The sun was setting on them when they reached Miami Beach.
They got a hotel by the water , a quart of Bombay Gin.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

They soon ran out of money but, Sonny knew a man,
Who knew some Cuban refugees, who dealt in contraband.
Sonny met the Cubans in a house just off the route,
With a briefcase full of money and a pistol in his boot.
The card were on the table when the law came bustin' in.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

The Cubans grabbed the goodies, Sonny grabbed a jack,
Broke the bathroom window and climbed on out the back.
Sherry drove the pickup through the alley on the side,
Where a lawman tackled Sonny and was reading him his rights.
She stepped out in the alley with a single shot four-ten
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

They left the lawman lying, they made their getaway.
Got back to the motel just before the break of day.
Sonny gave her all the money, he blew a little kiss.
If they ask you how this happened say I forced you into this.
She watched him as his taillights disappeared around the bend.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

Its main street after midnight, just like it was before,
Twenty-one months later, at the local grocery store .
Sherry buys a paper and a cold six-pack of beer.
The headlines say that Sonny is going to the chair.
She pulls back onto mainstreet in her new Mercedes Benz.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

From The LOVE AND DANGER Album

(blink 182)

it's alright to tell me what you think about me
i wont try to argue
or hold it against you
i know that you're leaving
you must have your reasons
the seasons are callin
the pictures are fallin down

the steps that i retrace
the sad look on your face
the timing
and structure
did you hear you fucked her
a day late a buck short
i'm writing the report
i'm losing a failing
when i'm move, i'm flailing now

and it'll happen once again
i'll turn to a friend
someone that under stands
cease to the master plan
but everybody's gone
and i've been here for too long
to face this on my own
well i guess that this is growing up

and maybe i'll see you
at a movie sneak preview
and show up and walk by
on the arm of that guy
and i'll smile and you'll wave
we'll pretend it's ok
this cheraide it wont last
when he's gone
i wont come back

and it'll happen once again
you'll turn to a friend
someone that under stands
cease to the master plan
but everybody's gone
and you've been here for too long
to face this on your own
well i guess that this is growin up

- damnit

this song says alot about me and all the shit that i went through with women before the one that i have now. to me this song tell the story of a guy that held onto a love that was far since gone and he can't let go. for years i was stuck in a rut like that, and i'm glad i'm out of it.

This may get me some heat from some of the devout religious members , but I ask that you don't judge me off of this...

A Perfect Circle - "Judith"

you're such an inspiration for ways that i will never
ever choose to be.
oh so many ways for me to show you how your savior
has abandoned you.
(Thank)*edit* your god,
Your lord,
Your christ.
he did this,
took all you had and left you this way.
still you pray,
never stray,
never taste of the fruit.
never thought to question why.
it's not like you killed someone.
it's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side.
praise the one who left you broken down and
paralyzed.
he did it all for you.
did it all for you.

oh so many ways for me to show you how your
dogma has abandoned you.
pray to your christ, to your god.
never taste of the fruit,
never stray,
never break,
never choke on a lie,
even though he's the one who did this to you
never thought to question why
it's not like you killed someone.
it's not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side.
talk to jesus christ as if he knows the reasons why he
did it all for you.
he did it all for you.
he did it all for you.



There is a lot of truth in those lyrics, whether you'd like to admit it or not. To me, that song is saying that life isn't always fair and that sometimes good people don't get what they deserve in life.







And here's another that I think a lot of people might be able to relate to, I know I can at time.

Trapt - "Made of Glass"

Don't know anything at all and I'm somebody else
It could take years to find you, it could take years to find myself.
And I don't need to hear your answer I just need you to see,
that I think it's time to break down these walls that we throw up.

Am I still breathing have I lost that feeling,
Am I made of glass 'cause you see right through me
I don't know who I am and you're the only one who sees that
I can't ask these questions that cannot be answered today.

And even if everything goes wrong and we start to fall apart
I will understand where you are, I will understand this by myself
And I don't need to hear your answer I just need you to feel
Like there are no boundaries at all.

Am I still breathing have I lost that feeling,
Am I made of glass 'cause you see right through me
I don't know who I am and you're the only one who sees that
I can't ask these questions that cannot be answered today.

Today, I don't mind today
Today, I don't matter today

And how far have we come, too far to throw away this past,
Will you be there waiting for me
I have to ask what we are, if I ask today it just won't last
So I'll be here waiting for you.

Will we ever feel this good again
Will we ever feel this real again, again
Will you ever be mine again
Will we ever feel this real again

Not today
Today, I don't mind today
Today, I don't matter today



This is essentially a song about trying to discover who you really are, and realizing that the people you're closest to know who the real you is, even if you yourself don't.


Thought it would be best to remove the f-bomb in the "judith" lyrics... didn't want to enrage any of you religious folk too bad. I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming
