  • Retirement - Kaiser Chiefs

    7 aug 2007, 06:27

    There are many things that I would be proud of
    If I'd only invented them such as the wheel
    The washing machine and the tumble dryer
    On these inventions surely I could retire

    I want to retire
    No longer required
    I want to get by without the man on my back
    A tear in my eye
    With a heart full of pride
    I must go out on a high
    And tell nobody why

    There are many things that I know I could do
    If I'd only have wanted to, such as create
    The perfect soulmate everyone would admire
    On this creation surely I could retire

    I want to retire
    No longer required
    I want to get by without the man on my back
    A tear in my eye
    With a heart full of pride
    I must go out on a high
    And not to answer to why

    I want to retire
    Inform the suppliers
    I'll leave the party in style
    And not to be carried out
    Without a cloud in the sky
    I Got my fingers in pies
    A Golden watch on my side
    Will measure my free time

    Now my place in History is surely assured
    I will be remembered here forever more
    Brand new product in place and a potential buyer
    Up on this next transaction surely I could retire

    I want to retire
    No longer required
    I want to get by without the man on my back
    A tear in my eye
    With a heart full of pride
    I must go out on a high
    And not to answer to why

    I want to retire
    Inform the suppliers
    I'll leave the party in style
    And not to be carried out
    Without a cloud in the sky
    I Got my fingers in pies
    A Golden watch on my side
    Will measure my free time

  • Shy - Peter Murphy

    17 jul 2007, 05:36

    (The Sister of Sleep)
    He was thought of as strange... a good looking man
    And shallow eyes like two hidden from view and empty puddles of hue
    His views on death spread like two anecdotal tales
    Although he, reclining, declining, to disclose in public...
    These opinions in public; the tales held the key

    Death is the surname of sleep, but the surname unknown to us
    Sleep is the daily end of life; a small exercise in death
    Which is it's sister, but not every brother and sister are equally close,
    Giving to the enemy a small exercise in submission
    And holding onto nothing
  • Some Heads Are Gonna Roll - Judas Priest

    12 jul 2007, 06:23

    The power-mad freaks who are
    Ruling the earth
    Will show little they think you're worth
    With animal lust they'll devour your life
    And slice your word to bits like a knife
    One last day burning hell fire
    You're blown away
    If the man with the power
    Can't keep it under control
    Some heads are gonna roll

    Judas Priest
  • Waiting On The World To Change - John Mayer

    7 jul 2007, 23:13

    Now if we had the power
    To bring our neighbors home from war
    They would've never missed a Christmas
    No more ribbons on their door
    And when you trust your television
    What you get is what you got
    Cause when they own the information, oh
    They can bend it all they want

    John Mayer
  • Rapid Fire - Judas Priest

    7 jul 2007, 20:53

    Pounding the world like a battering ram
    Forging the furnace for the final grand slam
    Chopping away at the source soon the course will be done
    Leaving a trail of destruction that's second to none

    Hammering anvils straining muscle and might
    Shattering blows crashing browbeating fright
    Fast devastating and desolisating the curse
    Blasting the cannons of truth through each man of this earth.

    Judas Priest
  • One Last Breath - Creed

    29 jun 2007, 07:50

    Hold me now
    I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinkin'
    May be six feet
    But it's so far down

    Creed
  • Ain't No Good Life - Lynyrd Skynyrd

    23 jun 2007, 06:14

    Ain't no good life
    Not the one that I lead
    'Cause the more I fight the sadness, yeah
    It only seems the more that I grieve
    Well I look back on the good times
    As some lost part of me
    I wanna know, tell me why is it so
    Well just because I don't pray
    Lord, that don't mean I ain't forgiven
    Just 'cause I'm alive
    That don't mean I'm makin' a livin'

    I'm gonna get myself together
    I'm gonna try a dyin' attempt
    Talkin' about the good times slippin' by
    Yeah I tell ya
    I don't even know where last month went
    Well I can't make no money baby
    Well 'cause my money's already spent
    And I know where it went
    I said it went on that damn rent
    Well I don't mean change, baby
    I mean foldin' money
    Well I want lovin', said I don't need a buddy
    I don't need nobody, now

    Ain't exactly my idea
    Its sort of old, borrowed and blue
    Just tryin' to say
    Don't try that straight life buddy
    Oh you'll find it kind of hard on you
    Women, don't try to cook nothin' up, ooh
    Brother you know you'll only wind up in your own stew
    Just don't let nobody tell you, oh what you oughta do

  • Spacetravel - Bush

    16 jun 2007, 04:56

    They're polishing the government
    Ressembles a last waltz

    We are the play things
    We are the form
    Soon it may come
    Since we can rise
    Too long since I've seen you
    We move like satellites

    My future lies
    In spacetravel
    She's coming over me

    They're burning the tenements
    Topless progressive thinking
    Political holes
    Got six but pray for seven


    My future lies
    In space travel
    She's coming over me
    I employ spies
    To stroll the gravel
    They never want to leave

    My future lies
    My future lies

    Scared of the government, scared of the government
    Scared of the government, scared of the government


    My future lies
    In spacetravel
    There's someone after me
    I employ spies in silver tassels
    They never seem that pleased
    My future lies
    My future lies

    Space
    I employ spies
    I employ spies
    Space

    My future lies
    My future lies
    Space travel
    My future lies
    Space travel

  • Can't Complain - Stan Ridgway

    10 jun 2007, 21:24

    "How you doin', Bert?" "Well, not so good, Charlie,
    My back's gone out and I got my finger cut gnarly.
    The job's the same, and so's the boss.
    He's still a big ass, and my wallet got lost.
    My wife's sick in bed, she says she'll never get well.
    And all these kids today have gone to hell.
    And all that government paperwork caught up with me--
    Had to hire a beancounter for an outrageous fee.
    And I don't know if the chicken or the egg is to blame
    But all things considered, I guess I can't complain."

    "Cheer up," Charlie said, "things could be worse."
    "Well, yeah, I know, but did I tell ya that
    My landlord's a cop? My neighbor's insane?
    But all things considered, I guess I can't complain."

    Chorus:
    Out on the water
    Where the sailing men all go
    The water's high,
    While all the fish swim low
    Out on the water
    Where the sailing men all go
    The water's high,
    While all the fish swim low

    "You know what, Bert?" Charlie said, "You've got the wrong attitude.
    Sometimes life's a big game, and the paths, you can choose.
    Things may go wrong, but you've gotta stand tall."
    "Well, I know," Bert said, "But well, that ain't all.
    My hair's fallin' out. The roof leaks when it rains.
    But all things considered, I guess I can't complain."

    Chorus repeat

    "You know what, Bert?" Charlie said, "You're a real loser.
    So I'll see you next week--if you live 'til then."
    As Bert walked out to the sidewalk, ten floors up
    Two men lost control of a hoist at just the right time
    And a big Steinway grand flattened Bert like a dime.
    And as a crowd gathered 'round and asked, what was his name?
    And could it be the chicken, or the egg to blame?
    Well, the only thing heard was that he couldn't complain.

    So if you're a loser in life, and your gun's outta ammo,
    Just remember the story of Bert and the piano.
    'Cause if you can't string the bow--and you're clean outta rosin1
    Someone may have planned for a music lesson.
    Keep your eyes to the sky; it could be a brand name
    And remember, all things considered, you really can't complain.

    Stan Ridgway
