    Dictatorship v. Democracy by Staple

    Vicious Cycle of Life:
    I find that I kill myself every time I look away from you.
    But I often gaze another moment.
    Incited scars reopen, bleeding again,
    and they're bleeding at my request freely given,
    and we choose the choice to loose (now we know).
    As these scars are screaming at me
    Just why we've chosen poorly.
    Could this be our chance to see
    why we believe that we need you instead of following numbly?
    Ride on, Ride strong solider, march to the dictated beat.
    Have you ever known how victory feels unless you have felt defeat?
    Dont want the pain of free will tolen and mindless mechanical will chosen.
    Cherish the loss
    There is no concept of gain without cost.
    I fall, and I fall freely.
    Incited scars are bleeding and now I believe.
    I freely believe when I hit the ground and bloody palms I raise,
    the arms that pick me up convince me.
    Where's no better place

    God Only Knows


    I may not always love you
    but aslong as there are stars above you
    you never need to doubt it
    I'll make you so sure about it
    God Only knows what Id be without you

    If you should ever leave me
    thought life would still go on beleive me
    the world could show nothing to me
    so what good would living do me?
    God Only Knows what Id be without you

    *harmonies*

    If you should ever leave me
    though life would still go on beleive me
    the world could show nothing to me
    so what good would living do me?
    God only knows what Id be without you
    God only knows what Id be without you
    God only knows what Id be without you
    God only knows what Id be without you........

    Hope - Our Lady Peace

    Hope climbs atop of the piano
    Reaching out towards the warmth of the sun
    Some man tries to ask her down
    But maybe that's where she belongs
    My God she said
    I'm the Sunflower who wants
    My God he said
    This woman is gone

    Chorus
    Into the dark, is there anybody there
    My God she said

    He climbed up top to find she was slipping
    Let her go, let her go, let me go
    How long must we leave before we're winning
    They don't know, they don't know, they just don't know

    Chorus

    If she can't be there I know it's best that
    Nothing is denied
    If she can't be there I know it's best that
    Everyone changes sides

    Within Temptation - See Who I Am

    Is it true what they say
    Are we too blind to find a way
    Fear of the unknown
    Cloud our hearts today

    Come into my world
    See through my eyes
    Try to understand
    Don't wanna lose what we have

    We've been dreaming
    For who can't deny
    It's the best way of living
    Between the truth and the lies

    See who I am
    Break through the surface
    Reach for my hand
    And shout out that we can
    Free your mind and find a way
    The world is in our hands
    This is not the end

    Fear is withering the soul
    At the point of no return
    We must be the change we wish to see

    I'll come into your world
    See through your eyes
    I'll try to understand
    Before we lose what we have

    We just can't stop believing
    Because we have to try
    We can rise above the truth and the lies

    See who I am
    Break through the surface
    Reach for my hand
    And shout out that we can
    Free your mind and find a way
    The world is in our hands

    See who I am
    Break through the surface
    Reach for my hand
    And shout out that we can
    Free your mind and find a way
    The world is in our hands

    This is not the end

    Hear the silence
    Reach out my blame
    Will our strength remain?
    If the power rise

    See who I am
    Break through the surface
    Reach for my hand
    And shout out that we can
    Free your mind and find a way
    The world is in our hands

    See who I am
    Break through the surface
    Reach for my hand
    And shout out that we can
    Free your mind and find a way
    The world is in our hands

    This is not the end

    My favourite classic: Bye Bye Miss American Pie by Don McLean

    Almost every lyric has a symbolic meaning relating to music of that era.
    (explanations found here: http://www.rareexception.com/Garden/Pie.php)

    A long, long time ago
    I can still remember
    How that music used to make me smile
    And I knew if I had my chance
    That I could make those people dance
    And maybe they'd be happy for a while

    But February made me shiver
    With every paper I'd deliver
    Bad news on the doorstep
    I couldn't take one more step

    I can't remember if I cried
    When I read about his widowed bride
    But something touched me deep inside
    The day the music died

    So... bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin'... this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Did you write the book of love
    And do you have faith in God above
    If the Bible tells you so?
    Now do you believe in rock and roll?
    Can music save your mortal soul?
    And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

    Well, I know that you're in love with him
    'Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym
    You both kicked off your shoes
    Man, I dig those rhythm and blues

    I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
    With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
    But I knew I was out of luck
    The day the music died

    I started singin'...

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin'... this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Now for ten years we've been on our own
    And moss grows fat on a Rollin' Stone
    But that's not how it used to be
    When The Jester sang for The King and Queen
    In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
    In a voice that came from you and me

    Oh, and while The King was looking down
    The Jester stole his thorny crown
    The courtroom was adjourned
    No verdict was returned

    And while Lennon read a book on Marx
    The quartet practised in the park
    And we sang dirges in the dark
    The day the music died

    We were singin'...

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
    And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin'... this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Helter Skelter in a summer swelter
    The Byrds flew off with a fall out shelter
    Eight miles high and falling fast
    It landed flat out on the grass
    The players tried for a forward pass
    With The Jester on the sidelines in a cast

    Now the half-time air was sweet perfume
    While Sergeants played a marching tune
    We all got up to dance
    Oh, but we never got the chance

    'Cause the players tried to take the field
    The marching band refused to yield
    Do you recall what was revealed
    The day the music died?

    We started singin'...

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin'... this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Oh, and there we were all in one place
    A generation Lost In Space
    With no time left to start again
    So come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
    Jack Flash sat on a candle stick
    'Cause fire is the devil's only friend

    Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
    My hands were clenched in fists of rage
    No angel born in Hell
    Could break that Satan's spell

    And as the flames climbed high into the night
    To moonlight the sacrificial rite
    I saw Satan laughing with delight
    The day the music died

    He was singin'...

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin'... this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    I met a girl who sang the blues
    And I asked her for some happy news
    But she just smiled and turned away
    I went down to the sacred store
    Where I'd heard the music years before
    But the man there said the music wouldn't play

    And in the streets the children screamed
    The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
    But not a word was spoken
    The church bells all were broken

    And the three men I admire most
    The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
    They caught the last train for the coast
    The day the music died

    And they were singin'...

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin'... this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    They were singin'...

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin'... this'll be the day that I die

    "Bless The Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts

    I set out on a narrow way many years ago
    Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
    But I got lost a time or two
    Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
    I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
    Every long lost dream led me to where you are
    Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
    Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
    This much I know is true
    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you

    I think about the years I spent just passing through
    I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
    But you just smile and take my hand
    You've been there you understand
    It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

    Every long lost dream led me to where you are
    Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars
    Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
    This much I know is true
    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you

    Now I'm just rolling home
    Into my lover's arms
    This much I know is true
    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you

    That God blessed the broken road
    That led me straight to you.

    House of the Rising Sun by The Animals


    There is a house in New Orleans
    they call the Rising Sun.
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy,
    and God I know I'm one.

    My mother was a tailor,
    she sewed my new blue jeans.
    My father was a gambling man,
    down in New Orleans.

    Now the only thing a gambler needs
    is a suitcase and a trunk.
    And the only time he's satisfied
    is when he's on a drunk.

    Oh mother tell your children,
    not to do what I have done.
    Spend your lives in sin and misery
    in the house of the Rising Sun.

    Well I got one foot on the platform and
    the other foot on the train.
    I'm goin back to New Orleans
    to wear that ball and chain.

    Well there is a house in New Orleans
    they call the Rising Sun
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy,
    and God I know I'm one.

    The Young and the Useless - I'd Like to Think I'm Still Immature

    There's a constant struggle between my flesh and my spirit,
    I'm searching for the things I think I need to be happy.
    There is nothing I hate more than the feeling I get
    when I know I missed an opportunity for something great.
    If this next year goes as fast as the last five
    then we better start taking advantage of our time.
    Together.
    It seems that my words only travel as far as the tip of my tongue.
    If I could get your attention for just one second
    I'd let you know how grateful I am that your a part of my life.
    I pray for strength to keep my head up when no one seems to care,
    it's hard for me to accept the fact that this past summer was my last,
    the thought of me not being a kid just blows my mind,
    and the thought of losing friends tears me inside.
    I'll do my best to keep you from slipping
    but sometimes things happen that no one can control.

    "Giving It Away" by Mae

    And by the way you brought me here,
    it makes me believe the best is still yet to come and I don't want to leave.
    Forgive my hesitation but I'm learning to trust in you.
    Help me to dream these dreams because I don't have a clue.

    And if you'd be honest and say what you mean
    you know I would promise I'd do anything
    because I know that without you I'm giving it away.

    Is this what you wanted?
    'Cause I'm willing to change.
    Now that I'm certain,
    that there's much more to gain.
    You've introduced me to the moment
    oh but I'm looking to stay for good.
    You asked me to stay forever.
    Well, you know that I would, I would do anything.

    And if you'd be honest and say what you mean
    you know I would promise I'd do anything
    'Cause I know that without you I'm giving it away.

    The nights are forever and maybe I'm wrong,
    but it feels like I'm so lost without you.
    So I step towards the heat, it's the way I can see,
    and it makes me believe that it's you.

    And by the way you brought me here
    it makes me believe the best is still yet to come and I don't want to leave,
    I won't, but anyway...

    If you'd be honest and say what you mean
    you know I would promise I'd do anything
    And the nights are forever, I can't get to sleep
    'Cause I know there's a reason I'm in this too deep
    And I'm sure that without you, I'm giving it away, yeah.

    I'm giving it away...

    Worlds Apart by Jars of Clay (one of my fave songs)

    I am the only one to blame for this
    Somehow it all adds up the same
    Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
    I flew too high and like Icarus I collide
    With a world I try so hard to leave behind
    To rid myself of all but love,
    To give and die

    To turn away and not become
    Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves
    More deeply than the oceans,
    More abundant than the tear
    Of a world embracing every heartache

    Can I be the one to sacrifice
    Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow

    To love you - take my world apart
    To need you - I am on my knees
    To love you - take my world apart
    To need you - broken on my knees

    All said and done I stand alone
    Amongst remains of a life I should not own
    It takes all I am to believe
    In the mercy that covers me

    Did you really have to die for me?
    All I am for all you are
    Because what I need and what I believe are worlds apart

    And I pray,
    To love you - take my world apart
    To need you - I am on my knees
    To love you - take my world apart
    To need you - broken on my knees

    I look beyond the empty cross
    Forgetting what my life has cost
    And wipe away the crimson stains
    And dull the nails that still remains
    More and more I need you now,
    I owe you more each passing hour
    The battle between grace and pride
    I gave up not so long ago
    So steal my heart and take the pain
    And wash the feet and cleanse my pride
    Take the selfish, take the weak,
    And all the things I cannot hide
    Take the beauty, take my tears
    The sin and soaked heart and make it yours
    Take my world all apart
    Take it now, take it now
    And serve the ones that I despise
    Speak the words I can't deny
    Watch the world I used to love
    Fall to dust and thrown away
    I look beyond the empty cross
    Forgetting what my life has cost
    So wipe away the crimson stains
    And dull the nails that still remain
    So steal my heart and take the pain
    Take the selfish, take the weak
    And all the things I cannot hide
    Take the beauty, take my tears
    Take my world apart, take my world apart
    I pray, I pray, I pray
    Take my world apart

    Worlds Apart.

    In Dreams
    Words & Music by Fran Walsh and Howard Shore
    Performed by Edward Ross


    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

    Metallica - Whiskey in the Jar

    I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
    I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier

    For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell

    Pink Floyd - Hey You


    Hey you, out there in the cold
    Getting lonely, getting old
    Can you feel me?
    Hey you, standing in the aisles
    With itchy feet and fading smiles
    Can you feel me?
    Hey you, don’t help them to bury the light
    Don’t give in without a fight.

    Hey you, out there on your own
    Sitting naked by the phone
    Would you touch me?
    Hey you, with you ear against the wall
    Waiting for someone to call out
    Would you touch me?
    Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
    Open your heart, I’m coming home.

    But it was only fantasy.
    The wall was too high,
    As you can see.
    No matter how he tried,
    He could not break free.
    And the worms ate into his brain.

    Hey you, standing in the road
    Always doing what you’re told,
    Can you help me?
    Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
    Breaking bottles in the hall,
    Can you help me?

    Evanescence - Lies

    :rapped:
    Bound at every limb by my shackles of fear
    Sealed with lies through so many tears
    Lost from within and persuing the end
    I fight for the chance to be lied to again.

    You will never be strong enough
    You will never be good enough
    You were never conceived in love
    You will not rise above

    They'll never see
    I'll never be
    I'll struggled on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    :rapped:
    But through my tears breaks a blinding light
    Birthing a dawn to this endless night
    Arms outstretched, awaiting me
    An open embrace upon a bleeding tree

    Rest in me and I'll comfort you
    I have lived and I died for you
    Abide in me and I vow to you
    I will never forsake you

    They'll never see
    I'll never be
    I'll struggled on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    They'll never see
    I'll never be
    I'd struggle on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    Ohhh oohh ahh oohh ahh ohh (x4)

    :shouted:
    Rest in me and I'll comfort you
    I have lived yet died for you
    Abide in me and I vow to you
    I will never forsake you

    They'll never see
    I'll never be
    I'd struggle on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    Ohhh oohh ahh oohh ahh ohh (x5)
    fade out

    Likin Park - "In The End"



    (It starts with)
    One thing / I don’t know why
    It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
    Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
    To explain in due time
    All I know
    time is a valuable thing
    Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
    Watch it count down to the end of the day
    The clock ticks life away
    It’s so unreal
    Didn’t look out below
    Watch the time go right out the window
    Trying to hold on / but didn’t even know
    Wasted it all just to
    Watch you go
    I kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
    What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried
    so hard
    And got so far
    But in the end
    It doesn't even matter
    I had to fall
    To lose it all
    But in the end
    It doesn't even matter
    One thing / I don’t know why
    It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
    Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
    To remind myself how
    I tried so hard
    In spite of the way you were mocking me
    Acting like I was part of your property
    Remembering all the times you fought with me
    I’m surprised it got so (far)
    Things aren’t the way they were before
    You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
    Not that you knew me back then
    But it all comes back to me
    In the end
    You kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
    What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I
    I tried so hard
    And got so far
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter
    I had to fall
    To lose it all
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter
    I've put my trust in you
    Pushed as far as I can go
    For all this
    There’s only one thing you should know
    I've put my trust in you
    Pushed as far as I can go
    For all this
    There’s only one thing you should know
    I tried so hard
    And got so far
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter
    I had to fall
    To lose it all
    But in the end
    It doesn’t even matter

    Ray Charles - Georgia on my Mind


    Georgia, Georgia
    The whole day through
    Just an old sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind

    I said a Georgia
    Georgia
    A song of you
    Comes as sweet and clear
    As moonlight through the pines

    Other arms reach out to me
    Other eyes smile tenderly
    Still in th'peaceful the dreams I see
    The road leads back to you

    I said Georgia
    Ooh Georgia, no peace I find
    Just an old sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind)

    Other arms reach out to me
    Other eyes smile tenderly
    Still in peaceful dreams I see
    The road leads back to you

    Oh Georgia
    Georgia
    No peace, no peace I find
    Just an old, sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind)

    I said, just an old sweet song
    Keeps Georgia on my mind

    Bright Eyes - Going For The Gold

    There's a voice on the phone
    telling what had happened,
    some kind of confusion
    more like a disaster.
    And it wondered how you were left unaffected,
    but you had no knowledge.
    No, the chemicals covered you.
    So a jury was formed
    as more liquor was poured.
    No need for conviction,
    they're not thirsting for justice.
    But I slept with the lies I keep inside my head.
    I found out I was guilty.
    I found out I was guilty.
    But I won't be around for the sentencing,
    cause I'm leaving
    on the next airplane.
    And though I know that my actions are impossible to justify
    they seem adequate to fill up my time.
    But if I could talk to myself
    like I was someone else,
    well then maybe I could take your advice,
    and I wouldn't act like such an asshole all the time.

    There's a film on the wall,
    makes the people look small
    who are sitting beside it,
    all consumed in the drama.
    They must return to their lives once the hero has died.
    They will drive to the office
    stopping somewhere for coffee,
    where the folk singers, poets and playwrights convene,
    dispensing their wisdom,
    Oh dear amateur orators.

    They will detail their pain
    In some standard refrain.
    They will recite their sadness
    Like it's some kind of contest.
    Well, if it is, I think I am winning it,
    All beaming with confidence
    as I make my final lap.
    The gold medal gleams
    so hang it around my neck
    cause I am deserving it:
    the champion of idiots.

    But a kid carries his walkman on that long bus ride to Omaha.
    I know a girl who cries when she practices violin.
    Cause each note sounds so pure, it just cuts into her,
    and then the melody comes pouring out her eyes.
    Now to me, everything else, it just sounds like a lie

    Go Let it Out


    Paint no illusion, try to click with whatcha got
    Taste every potion cos if yer like yerself a lot
    Go let it out, go let it in, go let it out

    Life is precocious in a most perculiar way
    Sister psychosis don't got a lot to say
    She go let it out, she go let it in, she go let it out
    She go let it out, she go let it in, she go let it out

    Is it any wonder why Princes & Kings
    Are clowns that caper in their sawdust rings
    And ordinary people that are like you and me
    We're the keepers of their destiny

    I'm goin' leaving this city, I'm goin' drivin' outta town
    Your comin' with me the right time is always now
    To go let it out, go let it in, go let it out
    To go let it out, go let it in, go let it out

    Is it any wonder why Princes and Kings
    Are clowns that caper in their sawdust rings
    Cos ordinary people that are like you and me
    We're the builders of their destiny
    We're the builders of their destiny
    We're the builders of their destiny
    We're the builders of their destiny

    So go let it out - go let it in
    Go let it out - don't let it in
    Go let it out - go let it in
    Go let it out - don't let it - don't let it in

    Let's All Make Believe



    Is anyone here prepared to say
    Just what they mean or is it too late?
    For anyone here to try to do
    Just what is takes to get through to you

    So let's all make believe
    That we're still friends and we like each other
    Let's all make believe
    In the end we're gonna need each other

    Stradle my hope and make me pray
    To a God I've never seen, but who I've betrayed
    To the people who live the earth, the life In a place I'll never be 'til I'm crucified

    So let's all make believe
    We're still friends and we like each other
    Let's all make believe
    In the end we'll need each other

    Let's all make believe
    That all mankind's gonna feed our brother
    Let's all make believe
    That in the end we'll all grow up

    So let's all make believe
    We're still friends and we like each other
    Let's all make believe
    In the end we'll need each other

    Let's all make believe
    That all mankind's gonna feed our brother
    Let's all make believe
    That in the end we'll all grow up

    A Day Late by Anberlin

    So let me get this straight
    Say now you love me all along
    What made you hesitate
    To tell me in words what you really feel
    I can see it in your eyes
    You mean all of what you say
    I remember so long ago
    See, I felt the same way

    Now we both have spearate lives and lovers (and lovers)
    Insignificantly enough we both have significant others
    Only time will tell
    Time will turn and tell

    We are who we were then
    Could of been lovers
    But at least your still my day late friend
    We are who,
    We are who we were then
    Who knew what we knew now
    Could of been more
    But at least your still my day late friend
    We are who,
    We are who we were then

    But thoughts may change
    And times they rearange
    I don't know who you are anymore
    But thoughts come and go
    And this I know
    I'm not who you recall anymore
    But I must confess
    You're so much more than I remember
    Can't help but entertain this thought
    Thoughts of us together

    We are who we were then
    Could of been lovers
    But at least your still my day late friend
    We are who,
    We are who we were then
    Who knew what we knew now
    Could of been more
    But atleast your still my day late friend
    We are who,
    We are who we were then
    My day late friend

    So let me get this straight
    All these years and you were nowhere to be found
    And now you want me for your own
    But you're a day late and my love's just still renown

    We are who we were then
    Could of been lovers
    But at least your still my day late friend
    We are who,
    We are who we were then
    Who knew what we knew now
    Could of been more
    But at least your still my day late friend
    We are who,
    We are who we were then
