|Words That Mean Things #3|
The first one of these I made on my old account, so that's long gone... The second one I made with this account, but for some reason, that one's also long gone... So I apologize for any duplicates if any of you even remember, lawl. But I don't think there are. Well, there may be duplicates of albums, but definitely not of lyrics. Anyway, check out this great poetry. Let's talk about the statements they're making. Death, love, language, fate, etc.
Waited Up 'til It Was Light
Your jealous friends have gotta get laid - The only thing that's stopping you is more of the same
Vows are spoken to be broken - Feelings are intense, words are trivial - Pleasures remain, so does the pain - Words are meaningless and forgettable
We chased our pleasures here, dug our treasures there - But can you still recall the time we cried? - Break on through to the other side
You'll find a girl with a low voice who holds the world in her bare hands - You'll fall in love, you'll have no choice, once you are given a fair chance - For the first time you will sleep well, take a deep breath, see the Sun shine - Hold on to her for dear life, then watch the whole world unwind - Ask her to show you some magic and I guarantee that she will say yes - Tell her you've seen forever and you'll be together not a day less
And the power's out - in the heart of man - Take it from your heart, put it in your hand
You said it was not inside my heart - it was. You said it should tear a kid apart - it does.

I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One
We could slip away - oh, wouldn't that be better? Me with nothing to say, and you in your autumn sweater
Bringing It All Back Home
While them that defend what they cannot see, with a killer's pride, security, it blows their minds most bitterly - For them that think death's honesty won't fall upon on them naturally, life sometimes must get lonely
Gone savage for teenagers with automatic weapons and boundless love - Gone savage for teenagers who are aesthetically pleasing, in other words, "fly" - Los Angeles beckons the teenagers to come to her on buses - Los Angeles loves love - - It is 5 AM, and you are listening to Los Angeles
|10||The Beach Boys|
My folks, when I wrote them, told 'em what I was up to, said "that's not me" - I went through all kinds of changes, took a look at myself, and said "that's not me"
Brand New Eyes
'Cause I'm just one of those ghosts - Travelin' endlessly - Don't need no roads - In fact, they follow me - And we just go in circles
Shooting Rubberbands At The Stars
Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box - Religion is the smile on a dog
The Eye of Every Storm
The race to render your vision - A fracture in the world can devour - Return to the light of the bearer - The radiant breaks down into life
There's something moving other there, to the right - Like nothing I've ever seen

Some Heavy Ocean
If we both get caught, then we'll run forever
Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
The music scene is crazy, bands start up each and every day - I just saw another one just the other day, a special new band
I don't wanna hurt nobody, I ain't gonna cause a scene - I just need to admit that I want sugar in my tea
|18||The Postal Service|
Last week I had the strangest dream, where everything was exactly how it seemed - Where there was never any mystery of who shot John F. Kennedy - It was just a man with something to prove, slightly bored and severely confused - He steadied his rifle with his target in the center - And became famous on that day in November
|19||System of a Down|
System of a Down
I want to fuck my way to the garden - 'Cause everyone needs a mother, fucker!
Sailing the Seas of Cheese
Cyanide works oh so fast, is it luck? - Polyester makes you sweat, is it luck? - If a graham cracker gets you off, is it luck? Love. Love? Is it luck?
Should I apologize if what I say burns your ears and stains your eyes? - Oh, did I crack your shell? When it falls away, you'll see we exist as well!
|22||Alice in Chains|
What's my drug of choice? Well, what have you got? I don't go broke, and I do it a lot
Art may imitate life, but life imitates TV
Survival never goes out of style
No one's got a thing against you, unless you got something to prove
|26||Manic Street Preachers|
The Holy Bible
He's a boy, you want a girl so tear off his cock - Tie his hair in bunches, fuck him, call him Rita if you want
|27||Young Marble Giants|
If you think the world is a clutter of existence - falling through the air with minimal resistance - you could be right - how would I know? - colossal youth is showing the way to go
Burn Your Fire For No Witness
If you've still got some light in you, then go before it's gone - Burn your fire for no witness, it's the only way it's done
Fear of Music
I'm charged up, I'm kinda wooden - I'm barely moving, I study motion - I study myself, I fooled myself! - I'm charged up, it's pretty intense. - - I'm charged up, don't put me down - Don't feel like talking, don't mess around - I feel mean, I feel ok - I'm charged up, electricity
I was listenin', listenin' to the rain - I was hearin', hearin' somethin' else
Hey, man of science with your perfect rules of measure - can you improve this place with the data that you gather? - Hey, Mother Mercy, can your loins bear fruit forever? Is your fecundity a trammel or a treasure?
40 Oz. to Freedom
The moral of the date rape story: it does not pay to be drunk and horny
Summer in Abaddon
Toss it away - into the water - toss it away - into the fire
No matter what we say, no matter what we think - We will never, we'll never leave this room - - What are we going to do about this?
I just want you to know that I don't hate you anymore - There is nothing I could say that I haven't thought before
You used to be alright - What happened? - Etcetera, etcetera... Fads for whatever - 15 steps - and then a sheer drop
|37||Genelec & Memphis Reigns|
This blizzard in the middle of spring hits - With swift unexpected foreshowing neglect for projected cores - Expect remorse from those not ready - caught heavy when Hurricane G drops steady - Never before measured the method that mirrors mine - effortlessly aggressive in essence, spirit and mind - clearin' that fine line, terminal velocity - inferno of animosity, man, there's no stoppin' me
When things should work but don't work, that's the work of all these governors
Hate if you wanna hate, if it keeps you safe, if it makes you brave
But listen to the color of your dreams - it is not living, it is not living - Or play the game: existence to the end - of the beginning, of the beginning, of the beginning, of the beginning...
