    The Misfits "Last Caress"

    (I can't really post the lyrics here)
    "It's easier to give up. I'm not a very vocal player. I lead by example. I take the attitude that I've got to go out and do it. Because of who I am, I've got to give everything I've got to come back."

    Love that song. Jackson Browne.

    I was thinking "Late for the Sky." Best break-up lyrics evah.

    Can't go wrong with "Pretender" for lyrics either. That one's almost too obvious.
    "I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."

    I'd like to know the song title and artist for the lyrics posted here. If I like the lyrics, I just might want to give the song a listen.

    BTW - here are my favorite lyrics for today:

    "I've seen you
    Fire up the gas in the engine valves
    I've seen your hand turn saintly on the radio dial
    I've seen the airwaves
    Pull your eyes towards heaven
    Outside Topeka in the phone lines
    Her good teeth smile was winding down"

    Soul Coughing - "True Dreams of Wichita"

    I tried to go back and edit my posts to include song title and artist, but it won't let me.

    So: In my first post, the song is "Attack", by 30 Seconds to Mars.

    In my second post, all the songs are by Ani Difranco.
    1. Little Plastic Castle
    2. As Is
    3. Glass House
    4. Untouchable Face

    Now you should go listen to all of those, especially the first one. :

    Tuesday afternoon.
    I'm just beginning to see,
    Now I'm on my way.
    It doesn't matter to me,
    Chasing the clouds away.
    Something calls to me.
    The trees are drawing me near,
    I've got to find out why.
    Those gentle voices I hear
    Explain it all with a sigh.

    I'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind.
    It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind.
    So gently swaying through the fairy-land of love,

    If you could just come with me and see the beauty of
    Tuesday afternoon.
    Tuesday afternoon.

    Tuesday afternoon.
    I'm just beginning to see,
    Now I'm on my way.
    It doesn't matter to me,
    Chasing the clouds away.

    Something calls to me.
    The trees are drawing me near,
    I've got to find out why.
    Those gentle voices I hear
    Explain it all with a sigh.


    Tuesday Afternoon, Moody Blues
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Iím a fleabit peanut monkey
    All my friends are junkies
    Thatís not really true

    Iím a cold italian pizza
    I could use a lemon squeezer
    What you do?

    But Iíve been bit and Iíve been tossed around
    By every she-rat in this town
    Have you, babe?

    Well, I am just a monkey man
    Iím glad you are a monkey woman too

    I was bitten by a boar
    I was gouged and I was gored
    But I pulled on through

    Yes, Iím a sack of broken eggs
    I always have an unmade bed
    Donít you?

    Well, I hope weíre not too messianic
    Or a trifle too satanic
    We love to play the blues

    Well I am just a monkey man
    Iím glad you are a monkey, monkey woman too, babe

    Iím a monkey
    Iím a monkey
    Iím a monkey man
    Iím a monkey man
    Iím a monkey

    Re: What are your favorite song lyrics?

    When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
    And it's Eastertime too
    And your gravity fails
    And negativity don't pull you through
    Don't put on any airs
    When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
    They got some hungry women there
    And they really make a mess outa you

    Now if you see Saint Annie
    Please tell her thanks a lot
    I cannot move
    My fingers are all in a knot
    I don't have the strength
    To get up and take another shot
    And my best friend, my doctor
    Won't even say what it is I've got

    Sweet Melinda
    The peasants call her the goddess of gloom
    She speaks good English
    And she invites you up into her room
    And you're so kind
    And careful not to go to her too soon
    And she takes your voice
    And leaves you howling at the moon

    Up on Housing Project Hill
    It's either fortune or fame
    You must pick up one or the other
    Though neither of them are to be what they claim
    If you're lookin' to get silly
    You better go back to from where you came
    Because the cops don't need you
    And man they expect the same

    Now all the authorities
    They just stand around and boast
    How they blackmailed the sergeant-at-arms
    Into leaving his post
    And picking up Angel who
    Just arrived here from the coast
    Who looked so fine at first
    But left looking just like a ghost

    I started out on burgundy
    But soon hit the harder stuff
    Everybody said they'd stand behind me
    When the game got rough
    But the joke was on me
    There was nobody even there to call my bluff
    I'm going back to New York City
    I do believe I've had enough
    Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun

    Aurora borealis
    The icy sky at night
    Paddles cut the water
    In a long and hurried flight
    From the white man
    to the fields of green
    And the homeland
    we've never seen.

    They killed us in our tepee
    And they cut our women down
    They might have left some babies
    Cryin' on the ground
    But the firesticks
    and the wagons come
    And the night falls
    on the setting sun.

    They massacred the buffalo
    Kitty corner from the bank
    The taxis run across my feet
    And my eyes have turned to blanks
    In my little box
    at the top of the stairs
    With my Indian rug
    and a pipe to share.

    I wish a was a trapper
    I would give thousand pelts
    To sleep with Pocahontas
    And find out how she felt
    In the mornin'
    on the fields of green
    In the homeland
    we've never seen.

    And maybe Marlon Brando
    Will be there by the fire
    We'll sit and talk of Hollywood
    And the good things there for hire
    And the Astrodome
    and the first tepee
    Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me
    Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me
    Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun

    Take a long drive with me
    On California one, california one
    Take a long drive with me
    On California one, California one...

    And the road a-winding goes
    From golden gate to roaring cliff-side
    And the light is softly low as our hearts Become sweetly untied
    Beneath the sun of california one

    Take a long drown with me of california Wine

    And the wine it tastes so sweet
    As we lay our eyes to wander
    And the sky, it stretches deep

    Will we rest our heads to slumber Beneath the vines of california wine?
    Beneath the sun of california one

    Annabelle lies, sleeps with quiet eyes
    on this sea-drift sun
    what can you do?
    and if i said, O it's in your head
    on this sea-drift sun
    what can you do?

    we're calling all bed wetters and ambulance chasers
    poor picker-pockets, bring 'em in
    come join the youth and beauty brigade

    we're lining up the light-loafere'd
    and the bored bench warmers
    castaways and cutouts, fill it up
    come join the youth and beauty brigade
    nothing will stand in our way

    i figured i had paid my debt to society
    by paying my overdue fines at the mulnoma county library, at the library
    they said 'son, go join up
    go join the youth and beauty brigade'

    nothing will stand in our way


    and

    We are two mariners
    Our ship's sole survivors
    In this belly of a whale
    It's ribs are ceiling beams
    It's guts are carpeting
    I guess we have some time to kill

    You may not remember me
    I was a child of three
    And you, a lad of eighteen
    But, I remember you
    And I will relate to you
    How our histories interweave
    At the time you were
    A rake and a roustabout
    Spending all your money
    On the *****s and hounds
    (oh, oh)

    You had a charming air
    All cheap and debonair
    My widowed mother found so sweet
    And so she took you in
    Her sheets still warm with him
    Now filled with filth and foul disease
    As time wore on you proved
    A debt-ridden drunken mess
    Leaving my mother
    A poor consumptive wretch
    (oh, oh)

    And then you disappeared
    Your gambling arrears
    The only thing you left behind
    And then the magistrate
    Reclaimed our small estate
    And my poor mother lost her mind
    Then, one day in spring
    My dear sweet mother died
    But, before she did
    I took her hand as she, dying, cried:
    (oh, oh)

    "Find him, bind him
    Tie him to a pole and break
    His fingers to splinters
    Drag him to a hole until he
    Wakes up naked
    Clawing at the ceiling
    Of his grave"

    It took me fifteen years
    To swallow all my tears
    Among the urchins in the street
    Until a priory
    Took pity and hired me
    To keep their vestry nice and neat
    But, never once in the employ
    Of these holy men
    Did I ever, once turn my mind
    From the thought of revenge
    (oh, oh)

    One night I overheard
    The prior exchanging words
    With a penitent whaler from the sea
    The captain of his ship
    Who matched you toe to tip
    Was known for wanton cruelty
    The following day
    I shipped to sea
    With a privateer
    And in the whistle
    Of the wind
    I could almost hear
    (oh, oh)

    "Find him, bind him
    Tie him to a pole and break
    His fingers to splinters
    Drag him to a hole until he
    Wakes up naked
    Clawing at the ceiling
    Of his grave

    There is one thing I must say to you
    As you sail across the sea
    Always, your mother will watch over you
    As you avenge this wicked deed"

    And then, that fateful night
    We had you in our sight
    After twenty months, it seemed
    Your starboard flank abeam
    I was getting my muskets clean
    When came this rumbling from beneath
    The ocean shook
    The sky went black
    And the captain wailed
    And before us grew
    The angry jaws
    Of a giant whale

    (oh..)

    Don't know how I survived
    The crew all was chewed alive
    I must have slipped between his teeth
    But, oh, what providence
    What divine intelligence
    That you should survive
    As well as me
    It gives my eye great joy
    To see your eyes fill with fear
    To lean in close
    And I will whisper
    The last words you'll hear
    (oh, oh)
    Hide your power alleys; Hide your wife

    Sixteen military wives,
    Thirty-two softly focused, brightly colored eyes,
    Staring at the natural tan,
    of thirty-two gently clenching, wrinkled, little hands.

    Seventeen company men,
    Out of which only twelve will make it back again.
    Seargeant sent a letter to five,
    Military wives, his tears drip down to ten little eyes.

    Cheer them on to their rivals
    Cause America can, and America can't say no
    And America does, if America says it's so
    It's so

    And the anchorperson on TV goes...
    La de da de da

    Fifteen celebrity mimes
    Leaving their fifteen sorted wretched checkered lives
    Will they find the solution in time
    Using their fifteen pristine moderate liberal minds?

    Eighteen academy chairs
    Out of which only seven really even care
    Doling out a garment to five
    Celebrity mimes, they're humbly taken by surprise

    Cheer them on to their rivals
    Cause America can, and America can't say no
    And America does, if America says it's so
    It's so

    And the anchorperson on TV goes...
    La de da de da de-dadedade-da
    La de da de da de-dadedade-da

    Fourteen cannibal kings
    Wondering blindly what the dinner bell will bring
    Fifteen celebrity mimes
    Served on a leafy bed th sixteen military wives

    Cheer them on to their rivals
    Cause America can, and America can't say no
    And America does, if America says it's so
    It's so

    And the anchorperson on TV goes...
    La de da de da de-dadedade-da
    La de da de da de-dadedade-da

    "A long time ago came a man on a track
    walking thirty miles with a pack on his back
    and he put down his load where he thought it was the best
    made a home in the wilderness
    he built a cabin and a winter store
    and he ploughed up the ground by the cold lake shore
    and the other travellers came riding down the track
    and they never went further, no, they never went back

    then came the churches then came the schools
    then came the lawyers then came the rules
    then came the trains and the trucks with their loads
    and the dirty old track was the telegraph road "

    "Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah.
    The gypsy flies from coast to coast

    Knowing many, loving none,
    Bearing sorrow havin' fun,
    But back home he'll always run
    To sweet melissa... mmm...

    Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same.
    And no one knows the gypsy's name

    No one hears his lonely sigh,

    There are no blankets where he lies.
    In all his deepest dreams the gypsy flies
    With sweet melissa... mmm...

    Again the morning's come,
    Again he's on the run,
    Sunbeams shining through his hair,
    Appearing not to have a care.
    Well, pick up your gear and gypsy roll on, roll on.

    Crossroads, will you ever let him go? (lord, lord)
    Will you hide the dead man's ghost,
    Or will he lie, beneath the clay,
    Or will his spirit roll away?

    But i know that he won't stay without melissa.

    Yes i know that he won't stay without melissa.
