    [​IMG] Any good song lyrics you'd like to post?
    Here's my personal favouritte:

    Artist: Staind
    Album: Break the Cycle,
    Song: Open Your Eyes



    As I walk along these streets
    I see a man that walks alone
    Distant echo of people's feet
    He has no place to call his own
    A shot rings out from a roof overhead
    A crackhead asks for change nearby
    An old man lies in an alleyway dead
    A little girl lost just stands there and cries

    *chorus*
    What would you do, if it was you
    Would you take everything
    For granted like you do


    A boy just 13 on the corner for sale
    Swallows his pride for another hit
    Overpopulation there's no room in jail
    But most of you don't give a shit
    That your daughters are porno stars
    And your sons sell death to kids
    You're so lost in your little worlds
    Your little worlds you'll never fix

    *chorus*
    What would you do, if it was you
    Would you take everything
    For granted like you do

    You turn away
    As I walk along the streets
    Soaking up the acid rain
    Underneath the taxi cabs
    I hear the streets cry out in vain

    These are my all time favourite song lyrics, from Øystein Sundes jaktprat:

    Det var en dag i august i fjor at bikkja fikk hetta og fulgte et spor og kom ikke igjen før dagen etter. Makaløst eksemplar av en engelsk setter, fillebikkje! Dårlig ører men ganske ålreit nese og når den lukter pannekaker kommern med en gang. Bra bikkje det gitt.

    I probably broke some forum regulations with that one, and I should be reminded about the FAQ. Therefor I will try to translate this:

    It was a day in August last year when the dog ran away and followed a track and didn't return until the day after. Uncomperable example of an english setter, ragdog! Bad ears but an allright nose and when it smells pancakes and stuff it comes right away. Nice dog indeed.

    nine inch nails
    burn

    This world rejects me
    This world threw me away
    This world never gave me a chance
    This world's gonna have to pay

    I don't believe in your institutions
    I did what you wanted me to
    I'm like the cancer in your system
    I've got a little suprise for you

    Something inside of me has opened up its eyes
    Why did you put it there
    Did you not realize
    Something inside of me it screams the loudest sound
    Sometimes I think I could

    Burn

    I look down at where your standing
    Flock of sheep out on displey
    With all your lies bumped up around you
    I can take it all away

    Something inside of me has opened up its eyes
    Why did you put it there
    Did you not realize
    This thing inside of me it screams the loudest sound
    Sometimes I think I could

    I'm gonna burn this whole world down

    I never was a part of you
    Burn

    I am your soldier
    (I never was a part of you)
    Burn

    I am corruption
    (I never was a part of you)
    Burn

    I am the angel
    (I never was a part of you)
    Burn

    Of your destruction
    (I never was a part of you)
    Burn

    I am perversion
    (I never was a part of you)
    Burn

    Sick with desire
    (I never was a part of you)
    Burn

    I am your future
    (I never was a part of you)
    Burn
    Swollowed up in fire

    Twisted Sister - I am (I'm me)

    Who are you to look down
    at what I believe?
    I'm on to your thinking
    and how you decieve
    Well you can't abuse me
    I won't stand no more
    Yes, I know the reason
    Yes, I know the score

    (*chorus*)
    I am
    And I'll be
    I will
    You'll see
    I am
    And I'll be
    I am, I'm me

    How I tried to please you
    live the way you said
    Do the things that you do
    like the living dead
    Then the truth it hit me
    got me off my knees
    It's my life I'm living;
    I'll live as I please

    (*repeat chorus*)

    Now's the time to stand tall
    start your life anew
    Freedom lies in your heart
    Now's the time for you

    (*repeat chorus*)

    shrouding all the ground around me
    is this holy crow above me
    black as holes within a memory
    and blue as our new second sun
    i stick my hand into his shadow
    to pull the pieces from the sand
    which i attempt to reassemble
    to see just who i might have been
    i do not recognise the vessel
    but the eyes seem so familiar
    like phosphorescent desert buttons
    singing one familiar song

    tool
    "3rd eye"

    [​IMG] Look at http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000272.html for more of this!

    Bat Out Of Hell

    The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling
    Way down in the valley tonight
    There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
    And a blade shining oh so bright
    There's evil in the air and there's thunder in the sky
    And a killer's on the bloodshot streets
    Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
    Oh I swear I saw a young boy
    Down in the gutter
    He was starting to foam in the heat

    Oh Baby, you're the only thing in this whole world that's pure
    and good and right
    And wherever you are and wherever you go
    There's always gonna be some light
    But I gotta get out
    I gotta break it out now
    Before the final crack of dawn
    So we gotta make the most of our one night together
    When it's over you know
    We'll both be so alone

    Like a bat out of hell
    I'll be gone when the morning comes
    When the night is over
    Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone gone gone
    Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes
    But when the day is done
    And the sun goes down
    And moonlight's shining through
    Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
    I'll come crawling on back to you

    I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
    On a silver black phantom bike
    When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry
    And we're all about to see the light
    Nothing ever grows in this rotting old hole
    Everything is stunted and lost
    And nothing really rocks
    And nothing really rolls And nothing's ever worth the cost
    And I know that I'm damned if I never get out
    And maybe I'm damned if I do
    But with every other beat I got left in my heart
    You know I'd rather be damned with you
    If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
    Dancing through the night with you
    If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
    Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
    If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
    Dancing through the night
    Dancing through the night
    Dancing through the night with you

    Oh Baby, you're the only thing in this whole world that's pure
    and good and right
    And wherever you are and wherever you go
    There's always gonna be some light
    But I gotta get out
    I gotta break it out now
    Before the final crack of dawn
    So we gotta make the most of our one night together
    When it's over you know
    We'll both be so alone

    Like a bat out of hell
    I'll be gone when the morning comes
    When the night is over
    Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone gone gone
    Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes
    But when the day is done
    And the sun goes down
    And moonlight's shining through
    Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
    I'll come crawling on back to you
    I'll come crawling on back to you

    I can see myself tearing up the road
    Faster than any other boy has ever gone
    And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe
    No one's gonna stop me now
    I gotta make my escape
    But I can't stop thinking of you
    And I never see the sudden curve until it's way too late
    I never see the sudden curve till it's way too late

    Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
    Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
    And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
    And the last thing I see is my heart
    Still beating
    Breaking out of my body
    And flying away
    Like a bat out of hell
    Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
    Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
    And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
    And the last thing I see is my heart
    Still beating
    Still beating
    Breaking out of my body and flying away
    Like a bat out of hell
    Like a bat out of hell
    Like a bat out of hell
    Like a bat out of hell
    Like a bat out of hell
    Like a bat out of hell

    Ah, we also had the same topic recently on Creativity Surge, for some more great lyrics, you can go here: http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum12/HTML/000061.html

    Song: The Spirit Carries On
    Artist: Dream Theater
    Allbum: Scenes from a Memory

    [Nicholas:]
    Where did we come from?
    Why are we here?
    Where do we go when we die?
    What lies beyond
    And what lay before?
    Is anything certain in life?

    They say, "Life is too short,"
    "The here and the now"
    And "You're only given one shot"
    But could there be more,
    Have I lived before,
    Or could this be all that we've got?

    If I die tomorrow
    I'd be all right
    Because I believe
    That after we're gone
    The spirit carries on

    I used to be frightened of dying
    I used to think death was the end
    But that was before
    I'm not scared anymore
    I know that my soul will transcend

    I may never find all the answers
    I may never understand why
    I may never prove
    What I know to be true
    But I know that I still have to try

    If I die tomorrow
    I'd be allright
    Because I believe
    That after we're gone
    The spirit carries on

    [Victoria:]
    "Move on, be brave
    Don't weep at my grave
    Because I am no longer here
    But please never let
    Your memory of me disappear"

    [Nicholas:]
    Safe in the light that surrounds me
    Free of the fear and the pain
    My questioning mind
    Has helped me to find
    The meaning in my life again
    Victoria's real
    I finally feel
    At peace with the girl in my dreams
    And now that I'm here
    It's perfectly clear
    I found out what all of this means

    If I die tomorrow
    I'd be allright
    Because I believe
    That after we're gone
    The spirit carries on

    [​IMG] It's an oldie now - Ugggh! We used to sing this song in college. Usually drunk, at the Deer Park Tavern in Newark, Delaware...Ahhh, the good ole days!

    The Pogues
    The Body Of An American

    The cadillac stood by the house
    And the yanks they were within
    And the tinker boys they hissed advice
    'Hot-wire her with a pin'
    We turned and shook as we had a look
    In the room where the dead men lay
    So big Jim Dwyer made his last trip
    To the home where his father's laid

    Fifteen minutes later
    We had our first taste of whiskey
    There was uncles giving lectures
    On ancient Irish history
    The men all started telling jokes
    And the women they got frisky
    At five o'clock in the evening
    Every bastard there was piskey

    Fare thee well going away
    There's nothing left to say
    Farewell to New York City boys
    To Boston and PA
    He took them out
    With a well-aimed clout
    He was often heard to say
    I'm a free born man of the USA

    He fought the champ in Pittsburgh
    And he slashed him to the ground
    He took on Tiny Tartanella
    And it only went one round
    He never had no time for reds
    For drink or dice or whores
    And he never threw a fight
    Unless the fight was right
    So they sent him to the war

    Fare the well gone away
    There's nothing left to say
    With a slainte Joe and Erin go
    My love's in Amerikay
    The calling of the rosary
    Spanish winde from far away
    I'm a free born man of the USA

    This morning on the harbour
    When I said goodbye to you
    I remember how I swore
    That I'd come back to you one day
    And as the sunset came to meet
    The evening on the hill
    I told you I'd always love
    I always did and I always will

    Fare thee well gone away
    There's nothing left to say
    'cept to say adieu
    To your eyes as blue
    As the water in the bay
    And to big Jim Dwyer
    The man of wire
    Who was often heard to say
    I'm a free born man of the USA

    Ok my turn i have two songs here, both by Everlast. These are some heavy lyrics and make you really think.

    Ends

    Some people will rob their mother for the ends
    Rats snitch on one another for the ends
    Sometimes kids get murdered for the ends
    so before we go any further I want my ends

    I knew this cat named Darrell, he didn't have a dollar
    He was Harvard material, Ivy League scholar
    Had a Ph.D., had an M.B.A.
    But now he's waiting tables cause it's rent to pay
    Companies downsizing, inflation's rising
    Can't find a job, he's feeling kind of stressed
    Doesn't even feel the effects when he says
    Forgot to count how many times I’ve been blessed
    So he falls off track, starts smoking the crack
    And once it hits his brain, starts a chain react
    Sells the shirt off his back, shoes off his feet
    He's losing all his teeth, now he's out in the street
    And all of sudden he's like, Jesse James
    Trying to stick up kids for their watches and chains
    But he's from business school, and he's nervous with the tool
    So he ends up on his back in a bloody pool

    CHORUS

    I knew this chick named Sally, she had a nice strut
    And everywhere that I went, she was up in the cut
    Swinging that butt, like place your ad here
    Only rapped the benz and rocked the fly gear
    Brand name wearing, champagne waving
    Jewels around her neck, a lotta style she's craving
    Ain't no saving, she's doing enough spending
    If you do the lending, she'll do the bending
    Straight machine vending, it's money for take
    Shopping sprees get her on her knees
    And if you hit her with keys of your crib, you acting funny
    Come home one day, find her counting out your money
    From the Wetlands, all the way to the Apollo
    If you're broke she'll spit, and if you're rich she might swallow

    CHORUS

    I knew those two homeboys, who made a lot of noise
    Making money on the block, kids was on they jock
    They was tougher than leather like Reverend Run
    DMC, they was toting guns
    Holdin' weight, goin' out of state
    Stackin' mad chips and pushin' phat whips
    Fly jewels and golds and got no job
    And then one disappeard and one got robbed

    What its like.

    We've all seen a man at the liquor store beggin' for your change
    The hair on his face is dirty, dread-locked and full of mange
    He asks a man for what he could spare, with shame in his eyes
    "Get a job you f**king slob," is all he replies
    God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
    Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues

    CHORUS:
    Then you really might know what it's like... (4x)

    Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom that said he was in love
    He said, "Don't worry about a thing, baby doll, I'm the man you've been dreaming of."
    But 3 months later he say he won't date her or return her calls
    And she swear, "God damn, if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls."
    And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walking through the door
    They call her a killer and they call her a sinner and they call her a whore
    God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes
    Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose

    CHORUS

    I've seen a rich man beg
    I've seen a good man sin
    I've seen a tough man cry
    I've seen a loser win
    And a sad man grin
    I heard an honest man lie
    I've seen the good side of bad
    And the downside of up
    And everything between
    I licked the silver spoon
    Drank from the golden cup
    And smoked the finest green
    I stroked daddiest dimes at least a couple of times
    before I broke their heart
    You know where it ends, yo, it usually depends on where you start

    I knew this kid named Max
    Who used to get fat stacks out on the corner with drugs
    He liked to hang out late
    He liked to get s**t faced and keep the pace with thugs
    Until late one night there was a big gun fight and Max lost his head
    He pulled out his chrome .45, talked some s**t, and wound up dead
    Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of this pain
    You know it comes that way
    At least that's what they say when you play the game
    God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news
    Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose

    Then you really might know what it's like... (3x)
    To have to lose...

    Redemption Song

    Old pirates Yes they Rob I
    Sold I to the merchant ships
    Minutes after they took I from the
    Bottom less pit
    But my hand was made strong
    By the hand of the almighty
    We forward in this generation triumphantly
    All I ever had is songs of freedom
    Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom
    Cause all I ever had redemption songs,
    redemption songs.

    Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
    None but ourselves can free our minds
    Have no fear for atomic energy
    Cause none of them can stop the time
    How long shall they kill our prophets
    While we stand aside and look
    Some say it's just a part of it
    We've got to fulfill the book.

    Won't you help to sing, these songs of freedom
    Cause all I ever had, redemption songs,
    redemption songs,
    redemption songs.

    Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
    None but ourselves can free our minds
    Have no fear for atomic energy
    Cause none of them can stop the time
    How long shall they kill our prophets

    Yes some say it's just part of it
    We've got to fulfill the book.

    Won't you help to sing, these songs of freedom
    Cause all I ever had, redemption songs
    All I ever had, redemption songs
    These songs of freedom, songs of freedom.

    [​IMG] Well, I've seen that Mollusken has put some lyrics in Norwegian, so don't mind if I put something that only the chosen will understand...

    Okay, these are the lyrics from a Montenegro singer called Rambo Amadeus. His songs are very special, because he writes very funny lyrics and makes fun of the local Balcanic music genres. This song is called "Èovjek sam ženo" ( I am a man, woman ) and it is based on the brilliant Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix.

    I don't know why the hell I'm writing this because there are only 1.5 people on these boards that might understand this. That 1.0 is for Extremist, because he's from Croatia, and the 0.5 is for Taluntain, because he is from Slovenia, and the 0.5 is there because but I'm not sure if he'll be able to understand this...
    IMHO the lyrics are very funny and I wish there was a way is no way in translating this in so all of you could share some montenegro humor...

    Èovjek sam ženo


    Hej Džo, jesi šenuo
    Kuda's to s pištoljom krenuo

    Hej Džo, jes' popizdio
    Il' si se to šljive rašljizdio - aman

    Svake noæi kad idem po cigara
    žena me s nekim hajvanom vara - aman

    Jednom kupih pištolj i skinuh s njega cjenu, te napravih od njih ljubomornu scenu - aman

    Uzeo sam devize i pravac prema jugu
    da kupim za sebe jednu ženu drugu - aman

    Sanela, Sanela
    Zasto me nisi htela

    Sanela, Sanela
    Jel bolji direktor hotela

    Hmm, lots of prog rock and such it seems. Time for some despair and lost love, I think. Tindersticks - Another Night In.


    Greed's all gone now, there's no question
    And I can see you push your hair behind your ears
    Regain your balance
    Doesn't matter where she is tonight
    Or with whoever she spends her time
    If these arms were meant to hold her
    They were never meant to hold her so tight
    For the love of that girl
    Greed's all gone now, the panic subsides
    When I could run, pulling arms to love her
    Try to put myself on on the inside

    For the love of that girl
    Tears swell, you don't know why
    For the love of that girl
    They never fall, they can never run dry
    For the love of that girl

    Promise is never over, never questioned it needed reply
    But she could breathe deep into my neck
    Let me know I'm just on the outside

    (Chorus)

    Greed's all gone now, there's no question
    And I can see you push your hair behind your ears
    Regain your balance
    Doesn't matter where she is tonight
    Or with whoever she spends her time
    If these arms were meant to hold her
    They were never meant to hold her so tight

    (Chorus)

    Well it was a hard choice what I should post here, because there are so many good songs and I have access to hundreds (maybe a thousand) lyrics, since my brother is a big music and lyrics fanatic (he actually collects them). Bogi simplified my choice a little by already posting the lyrics of one of my favorite songs.

    The lyrics I decided to post are from a song that in my opinion didn't get it's fame from it's lyrics, but from it's great gitar play.


    Deep Purple – Child In Time

    Sweet child in time you’ll see the line
    The line that’s drawn between the good and the bad
    See the blind man shooting at the world
    Bullets flying taking toll

    If you’ve been bad, Lord I bet you have
    And you’ve been hit by flying lead
    You’d better close your eyes and bow your head
    And wait for the ricochet

    Nightwish - Know Why The Nightingale Sings

    Know Why the Nightingale Sings?
    What does the free fall feel like?
    Asks the boy with a spark in his eye
    Know why the nightingale sings
    Is the answer to everything

    Taking a step to the world unbound
    Spinning my fantasies all around
    Freed from the gravital leash
    I swear the heaven's in my reach

    Dancing with the spirit of the air
    In this ocean so so open and fair
    Making love to the gods above
    On my maiden voyage so bold

    Landing safely to the blue lagoon
    Don't know if this is the earth or the moon
    Joy of living is no more a mask
    The Eden I found will forever last

    Migrating with the geese
    My soul has finally found peace
    Doesn't matter that man has no wings
    As long as I hear the nightingale sing...



    Nightwish - Wishmaster

    Master!
    Apprentice!
    Heartborne, 7th Seeker
    Warrior!
    Disciple!
    In me the Wishmaster

    Elbereth
    Lorien

    A dreamy-eyed child staring into night
    On a journey to storyteller`s mind
    Whispers a wish speaks with the stars the words are silent in him
    Distant sigh from a lonely heart
    "I`ll be with you soon, my Shalafi"
    Grey Havens my destiny

    Master!...

    Silvara
    Starbreeze

    Sla-Mori the one known only by Him
    To august realms, the sorcery within
    If you hear the call of arcane lore,
    Your world shall rest on Earth no more
    A maiden elf calling with her cunning song
    "Meet me at the Inn of Last Home"
    Heartborne will find the way!

    Wishmaster
    Crusade for Your will
    A child, dreamfinder
    The Apprentice becoming...

    Pretty much anything by a band called Pig Destroyer - i'll post a couple of songs (they are usually one verse, more like straight poetry than usual lyrical prose).

    dark sattelites
    rebellion impossible your cabal crushed in its infancy they watch you conspire from distances beyond your perception before revolt is feasible their ability to negate our strategems must be annulled we must blind the watchers
    seven and thirteen
    the trivial little things left in your wake are beloved terminally infected limbs it is not the firing squad but the blindfold that makes us tense loss of perfection leaves no cause to persist in searching leaving me longing for the day that finally smothers all hope
    flag burner
    quixotic concept of examining foreign cultures as oportunities for brotherhood and mutual cultivation instinctual xenophobia initiates conflict subjugation exploition and subsequently flawed assimilation our inbred star-bellied mentality cannot differentiate between dissimilar and inferior a self-imposed quarantine from diversity only serves to restrict our capacity to evolve nationalism is a malignant cancer which must be carved out by the blade of individualism
    delusional supremacy
    single file lemmings we prepare our mandate in effect simply a testement to our gullability with each pull of the lever we lend credibility to an institution which we can only repaint never reconstruct our percieved power of change so divided and spread so thin so as to be rendered ineffective if the collective voice cannot be heard then the collective wrath must be felt
    martyr to the plague
    why purchase respect when terror is on sale reverse nightstick buttf**k at some point protection and domination became synonymous and somewhere theres a bullet on its way to your face pig

    This topic needs a little steel. I offer Dark Avenger, by Manowar. Track 6 from Battle Hymns.

    He broke the laws of the elders
    So they plucked out his eyes
    Took his land and fortune
    left him to die

    Bound on the shoreline
    Left for the tide
    Sees his lifeblood leaving
    Circling lower, the vultures fly

    These bones may be broken
    But the spirit can't die
    And the Gods see his anguish
    And give him a sign
    From the floor off the ocean
    The ship of lost souls rise
    And they take him
    Where no one sleeps where the undead cry

    And in the world above, the Elders sing
    On his land they live
    Let the death bells ring

    (This part is narrated by Orson Welles)

    He was met at the gates of Hades by the Guardian of the Lost Souls
    The keeper of the unavenged
    And he did say to him
    Let ye not pass abaddon
    Return to the world from whence ye came
    And seek payment
    Not only for thine own anguish, but vindicate the souls of the unavenged
    And they placed in his hand a sword made for him called Vengeance
    Forged in brimstone and tempered by the woeful tears of the unavenged
    And to carry him upon his journey back to the Upper World, they brought forth their demon horse called Black Death
    A grim steed so fearsome in might and black in color that he could stand as one with the darkness, save for his burning eyes of crimson fire

    (back to the music)

    And on that night
    They rode up from hell
    The pounding of his hooves
    Did clap like thunder

    Burning death destruction
    Raping their daughters and wives
    In blood I take my payment
    In full with their lives

    No one can escape me
    On Black Death I ride
    When kissed by the Sword of Vengeance
    Your head lays their by your side
    I take the lives of all that I once knew
    They torn flesh of a slow death waits for you

    I spare not land or servants
    My wake is smoke and flame
    I take their wives and daughters
    They stand there watching
    Hoping to gain their lives
    But when I'm through
    They know that they must pay

    Ok, some more steel here! Another song of Rhapsody, this band fits well by this forums:

    Echoes of terror in this old land
    I see the result of their quest
    Skulls of old heroes lie everywhere
    in this mystical place
    Dust in their eyes, dust on my pride
    in this infinite journey to the ancient sword

    I can hear their lament between these rocks
    the whisper of an angry ghost
    he speaks for them all trapped in this lost world
    I am their very last hope
    to ride from hell free once again
    to break the chains from a bloody past for my victory

    Eternal glory ride fast to me
    pound in my heart for the Algalord kings
    Eternal glory spread your wide wings
    fly and forever lead my holy steel

    I'll fight, I'll cry for your silence your name
    You'll live through me I will end all your pain
    for the swan in the lake the bird on the tree
    the peace for my beloved lands
    The black king is near and Algalord calls
    so heroes of the lost valley raise all your voice

    Eternal glory ride fast to me
    pound in my heart for the Algalord kings
    Eternal glory spread your wide wings
    fly and forever lead my holy steel
