3/5...
    #940928 - 10/07/02 08:21 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds
By J. A.

do away with people blowing my mind
do away with people wasting my precious time
take me to a simple place
where I can easily see my face
baby, baby I can see that you're fine
know I love you baby, yes I do
know I love you baby, yes I do

do away with people laughing at my hair
do away with people climbing on my precious prayers
take me to a circus tent
where I can easily pay my rent
and all the other freaks can share my cares
know I love you baby, yes I do
know I love you baby, yes I do

do away with things that come on obscene
like hot rods real clean real fine nicotine
sometimes the price is 65 dollars
prices like that make a grown man holler
'specially when it's sold by a kid that's only 15
know I love you baby, yes I do
know I love you baby, yes I do
3/5's of a mile in 10 seconds...

Army
By Ben Folds Five

well i thought about the army
dad said, son you're fucking high
and i thought, yeah there's a first for everything
so i took my old man's advice
three sad semesters
it was only fifteen grand spent in bed
i thought about the army
i dropped out and joined a band instead

grew a moustache and a mullet
got a job at chic-fil-a
citing artistic differences
the band broke up in may
and in june reformed without me
and they'd got a different name
i nuked another grandma's apple pie
and hung my head in shame

i've been thinking a lot today
i've been thinking a lot today

oh, i think i'll write a screenplay
oh, i think i'll take it to LA
oh, i think i'll get it done yesterday

in this time of introspection
on the eve of my election
i say to my reflection
god, please spare me more rejection
'cause my peers, they criticize me
and my ex-wives all despise me
try to put it all behind me
but my redneck past is nipping at my heels

i've been thinking a lot today
i've been thinking a lot today
i've been thinking a lot today
i thought about the army...

LMAO! That?s Cool! :cool:

Grapefruit Moon
Tom Waits

Grapefruit moon, one star shining, shining down on me.
Heard that tune, and now I'm pining, honey, can't you see?
'Cause every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks inside,
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, can't turn back the tide.

Never had no destination, could not get across.
You became my inspiration, oh but what a cost.
'Cause every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks inside,
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is more than I can hide.

Now I'm smoking cigarettes and I strive for purity,
And I slip just like the stars into obscurity.
'Cause every time I hear that melody, well, puts me up a tree,
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is all that I can see.

Everybody Knows
By Leonard Cohen

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it's moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it's coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Meta Cool! I was just listening to that yesterday! :cool: :cool:

Sorry this one's kinda long... but it's damn good! :cool:

America
by Allen Ginsberg

      America I've given you all and now I'm nothing.
      America two dollars and twentyseven cents January
              17, 1956.
      I can't stand my own mind.
      America when will we end the human war?
      Go fuck yourself with your atom bomb.
      I don't feel good don't bother me.
      I won't write my poem till I'm in my right mind.
      America when will you be angelic?
      When will you take off your clothes?
      When will you look at yourself through the grave?
      When will you be worthy of your million Trotskyites?
      America why are your libraries full of tears?
      America when will you send your eggs to India?
      I'm sick of your insane demands.
      When can I go into the supermarket and buy what I
              need with my good looks?
      America after all it is you and I who are perfect not
              the next world.
      Your machinery is too much for me.
      You made me want to be a saint.
      There must be some other way to settle this argument.
      Burroughs is in Tangiers I don't think he'll come back
              it's sinister.
      Are you being sinister or is this some form of practical
              joke?
      I'm trying to come to the point.
      I refuse to give up my obsession.
      America stop pushing I know what I'm doing.
      America the plum blossoms are falling.
      I haven't read the newspapers for months, everyday
              somebody goes on trial for murder.
      America I feel sentimental about the Wobblies.
      America I used to be a communist when I was a kid
              I'm not sorry.
      I smoke marijuana every chance I get.
      I sit in my house for days on end and stare at the roses
              in the closet.
      When I go to Chinatown I get drunk and never get laid.
      My mind is made up there's going to be trouble.
      You should have seen me reading Marx.
      My psychoanalyst thinks I'm perfectly right.
      I won't say the Lord's Prayer.
      I have mystical visions and cosmic vibrations.
      America I still haven't told you what you did to Uncle
              Max after he came over from Russia.
      I'm addressing you.
      Are you going to let your emotional life be run by
              Time Magazine?
      I'm obsessed by Time Magazine.
      I read it every week.
      Its cover stares at me every time I slink past the corner
              candystore.
      I read it in the basement of the Berkeley Public Library.
      It's always telling me about responsibility. Business-
              men are serious. Movie producers are serious.
              Everybody's serious but me.
      It occurs to me that I am America.
      I am talking to myself again.
               
      Asia is rising against me.
      I haven't got a chinaman's chance.
      I'd better consider my national resources.
      My national resources consist of two joints of
              marijuana millions of genitals an unpublishable
              private literature that goes 1400 miles an hour
              and twenty-five-thousand mental institutions.
      I say nothing about my prisons nor the millions of
              underprivileged who live in my flowerpots
              under the light of five hundred suns.
      I have abolished the whorehouses of France, Tangiers
              is the next to go.
      My ambition is to be President despite the fact that
              I'm a Catholic.
      America how can I write a holy litany in your silly
              mood?
      I will continue like Henry Ford my strophes are as
              individual as his automobiles more so they're
              all different sexes.
      America I will sell you strophes $2500 apiece $500
              down on your old strophe
      America free Tom Mooney
      America save the Spanish Loyalists
      America Sacco & Vanzetti must not die
      America I am the Scottsboro boys.
      America when I was seven momma took me to Com-
              munist Cell meetings they sold us garbanzos a
              handful per ticket a ticket costs a nickel and the
              speeches were free everybody was angelic and
              sentimental about the workers it was all so sin-
              cere you have no idea what a good thing the
              party was in 1835 Scott Nearing was a grand
              old man a real mensch Mother Bloor made me
              cry I once saw Israel Amter plain. Everybody
              must have been a spy.
      America you don't really want to go to war.
      America it's them bad Russians.
      Them Russians them Russians and them Chinamen.
              And them Russians.
      The Russia wants to eat us alive. The Russia's power
              mad. She wants to take our cars from out our
              garages.
      Her wants to grab Chicago. Her needs a Red Readers'
              Digest. Her wants our auto plants in Siberia.
              Him big bureaucracy running our fillingsta-
              tions.
      That no good. Ugh. Him make Indians learn read.
              Him need big black niggers. Hah. Her make us
              all work sixteen hours a day. Help.
      America this is quite serious.
      America this is the impression I get from looking in
              the television set.
      America is this correct?
      I'd better get right down to the job.
      It's true I don't want to join the Army or turn lathes
              in precision parts factories, I'm nearsighted and
              psychopathic anyway.
      America I'm putting my queer shoulder to the wheel.
               
              Berkeley, January 17, 1956

Euro-Trash Girl
By Cracker

Well I've been up to Paris,
and I've slept in a park.
Went down to Barcelona,
someone broke in my car.
And I'll search the world over
for my angel in black.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for a Euro-trash Girl.

Took the train down to Athens,
and I slept in a fountain.
Some Swiss junkie in Turin
ripped me off for my cash.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for my angel in black.
Yeah, search the world over
for a Eurotrash Girl.

The CRS on the metro
shook me down for a bribe.
On my knees for the sergeant
when my passport arrived.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for my angel in black.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for a Euro-trash Girl

Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl.
Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl.

Called my mom from a payphone
I said "I'm down to my last."
She said "I sent you to college...
now go call your dad."
And the waitress that he married,
well she hung up the phone.
You know she never did like me,
but I can stand on my own.

Sold my plasma in Amsterdam.
Spent it all in a night,
buying drinks at the Melk Weg
for a soldier in drag.
And I'll search the world over
for my angel in black.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for a Eurotrash Girl

Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl.
Euro-trash Girl, (I'm a) Euro-trash girl.

Yeah, I'll search the world over
for my angel in black.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for a Eurotrash Girl (solo Johnny)

Got a tattoo in Berlin
(and a case of the crabs).
A rose and a dagger
on the palm of my hand.
And I'll search the world over
for my angel in black.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for a Eurotrash Girl.

Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl.
Euro-trash Girl, (I'm a) Euro-trash girl.

Yeah, I'll search the world over
for my angel in black.
Yeah, I'll search the world over
for a Eurotrash Girl.

Cracker is a great band, and that's one of the best songs on that album! Cake is pretty good too! :cool:

Democracy
by Leonard Cohen

It's coming through a hole in the air,
from those nights in Tiananmen Square.
It's coming from the feel
that it ain't exactly real,
or it's real, but it ain't exactly there.
From the wars against disorder,
from the sirens night and day,
from the fires of the homeless,
from the ashes of the gay:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It's coming through a crack in the wall,
on a visionary flood of alcohol;
from the staggering account
of the Sermon on the Mount
which I don't pretend to understand at all.
It's coming from the silence
on the dock of the bay,
from the brave, the bold, the battered
heart of Chevrolet:
Democracy is comming to the U.S.A.

It's coming from the sorrow on the street
the holy places where the races meet;
from the homicidal bitchin'
that goes down in every kitchen
to determine who will serve and who will eat.
From the wells of disappointment
where the women kneel to pray
for the grace of G-d in the desert here
and the desert far away:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on
o mighty Ship of State!
To the Shores of Need
past the Reefs of Greed
through the Squalls of Hate
Sail on, sail on

It's coming to America first,
the cradle of the best and the worst.
It's here they got the range
and the machinery for change
and it's here they got the spiritual thirst.
It's here the family's broken
and it's here the lonely say
that the heart has got to open
in a fundamental way:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It's coming from the women and the men.
O baby, we'll be making love again.
We'll be going down so deep
that the river's going to weep,
and the mountain's going to shout Amen!
It's coming to the tidal flood
beneath the lunar sway,
imperial, mysterious
in amorous array:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on
o mighty Ship of State!
To the Shores of Need
past the Reefs of Greed
through the Squalls of Hate
Sail on, sail on

I'm sentimental if you know what I mean:
I love the country but I can't stand the scene.
And I'm neither left or right
I'm just staying home tonight,
getting lost in that hopeless little screen.
But I'm stubborn as those garbage bags
that Time cannot decay,
I'm junk but I'm still holding up
this little wild boquet:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

I got to see Cake live once... Was a great show.

Pentagram
By Cake

Your pentagram is down below our floor.
Your naked body shimmers in the night.
Dancing and chanting in a sacrificial rite.
Your feet are dry with the ashes from dead babies,
Who have passed the test just like all the rest,
But never really understood the reasons why
They took it in the first place.
Ah, in the first place.

Your feasty eyes won't make me fall apart.
Your turquoise and silver won't weaken this old heart.
Yeah, dancing and chanting in a sacrificial rite.
I fell to the ground on a windy, windy night.
Well I have passed the test just like all the rest,
But never really understood the reasons why
I took it in the first place.
Ah, in the first place.

Well I have passed the test just like all the rest,
But never really understood the reasons why
I took it in the first place.
Ah, in the first place.

i love ginsburgs ode to failure

my favorite lyrics right now are probably

the white stripes
we're going to be friends

fall is here, hear the yell
back to school and ring the bell
brand new shoes, walking blues
climb the fence, books and pens
i can tell that we are going to be friends

walk with me, suzy lee
through the park down by the tree
we will rest upon the ground
look at all the bugs we found
then safely walk to school without a sound

here we are, no one else
we walked to school all by ourselves
theres dirt on out uniform
from chasing all the ants and worms
we clean up and now its time to learn

numbers letters learn to spell
nouns and books and show and tell
at playtime we will pass the ball
back to class through the hall
teacher marks our height against the wall

we dont notice any time pass
we dont notice anything
we sit side by side in every class
teacher thinks that i sound funny
but she likes the way you sing

tonight ill dream while im in bed
when silly thoughts go through my head
about the bugs and alphabet
and when i wake tommorow ill bet
that you and i will walk together again
cause i can tell that we are going to be friends

k

Yeah, the White Stripes are cool! They are definitely one of my favorite new bands of the past few years.

PS: I know that movie with Christian Slater, but I can?t think of the name either. Although I haven?t seen it in over a decade, it was pretty cool if I remember. :cool:
