"You are witnessing elegance in the form of a black elephant. Smoking white rhino on terraces."

"Think realistically if you diss me could you handle my rebuttal version?
Then again if you spit my name it only means you recognize my status.
I flip the script use your little diss as a promotional apparatus.
I'll ignore you sellin crack, killin people, and keepin it real,
but disrespect me and my adopted fam and die young like veal."

"that nigga you expect to catch wreck on any cassette deck, im so ahead of my time my parents havent met yet"

"My words speak for themselves, so feel me.
Cause on the mic I’ve got more presence,
Than attendence in a class of schizophrenics, hear hear..."

"Try to merk off of the pile but you choked on my motherfuckin portion"

"Even when I say nothing it’s a beautiful use of negative space"

"Yo, catch the rarest glimpses of the planet once known as earth,
That gravitated, before inner violence heated it up, then it burnt"

"The span of my arms does not constitute my reach
That's the sideways A, of the Y's a few feet."

"Rhyme rope ladder.
Climbin and creatin, rung by line.
But an unseen force, plots my course.
Down I'm forced, to the ground I slip,
the rhyme rope rips, fingertips are cut.
Hands get burnt and I retreat to the hut.
You see blisters, turn a boy into a mister."

"Rhymes are tight like vice grips with mic tools,
the fools manifest jewels to get you high like swimmin in the cesspool.
And when you starve I carve a rhyme like a pumpkin,
And in the caverns of my soul I go spelunkin."

"I leave no foot prints on the sands of time, so these wack emcees can't follow me."

"Archery through parched lips I aim rhymes that maim mimes.
The verbal darts I rip your heart skips a beat, grip your seat.
And you can dip your feet in the clear blue, here to,
Defrost your rear view, if you're lost then I can steer you."

"Then, I stepped over the bloody axe frame with wax fame
Rogue pistol runnin' through New York like Max Payne"

"Shock the spot, rock the spot. Remind you of the days when you popped and locked,
On ghetto blocks, on a cardboard box. But now you dodge stray shots, and crooked cops."

"To hold the mic I'm throbbin, mechanical movement.
Understandable smooth s**t that murderers move wit.
The thief's theme, play me at night, they won't act right.
The fiend of hip-hop has got me stuck like a crack pipe."

"Broken glass in the hallway, bloodstained floors
Neighbors, look at every bag you bring through your doors"

"I smoke on the mic like smoking Joe Frazier. [R.I.P]
The hell raiser, raising hell with the flavor"

"Here's Mordigan, catch it like a psycho flashback
I love gats, if rap was a gun, you wouldn't bust back"

"First things first man you're f*****g with the worst
I'll be sticking pins in your head like a f*****g nurse"

"Some ain't had hits since I seen Aunt Mabel
Be doing artists in like Cain did Abel
Now they money's gettin stuck to the gum under the table"

"So stingy they got short arms and deep pockets
This goes on in some companies
With majors they're scared to death to pump these
First of all, who's your A&R
A mountain climber who plays an electric guitar
But he don't know the meaning of dope
When he's looking for a suit and tie rap
that's cleaner than a bar of soap"

"You grew up way too fast
Now there's nothing to believe
When reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio"
- "Name" by The Goo Goo Dolls

"It may sound absurd
But won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed
But won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream"
- "Superman" by Five for Fighting

"All day
Staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night
Hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something
Hold on
Feeling like I'm headed for a
Breakdown
And I don't know why"
- "Unwell" by Matchbox Twenty

Quote:
I've tided over countless sleepless nights
This wounding pain is only a single memory
I don't need kindness; I don't want it
I'll say it twice: I don't want it

The dream I sought is just an illusion now.
I can hear someone whispering in my mind. [1]
I don't need consolation; I don't want it
And I don't want false love either

I got a burnin' love
Until this sorrow is burnt out with a shining blue flame
I got a burnin' love
Love is a lonely battle; that intensity can pierce through the darkness

Without a winner or the like, tired out from battle
I look up at the sky; crying out is beyond my power
I don't need yesterday or the like
I don't need a dream that has rotted away

I got a burnin' heart
I just want to keep running as I chase the thrills that race through my chest

Memories that can't be expressed in words
are making even my frozen heart grow warm

I got a burnin' love
Until it's time to shed the mantle of this starry sky with a shining blue flame
I got a burnin' heart
Love is a lonely battle; will even this world flicker out of existence?
I got a burnin' love
Even today I just keep running as I chase the thrills that race through my chest
I got a burnin' heart
Love is a futile battle; why will even my heart be snatched away?

"The Winner" Gundam 0083 opening song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOlPU1L7FWs

Pretty much my favorite lyrics ever.

"When I am King, you will be first against the wall."
"Everyone is so near, Everyone has got fear."
"I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo, what the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here."
"Yesterday, I woke up sucking a lemon."
"You forget so easily; tonight we ride ghost horses."
"Don't you- flan in the face."

"His blood flows frozen in the snow."

"Tell me how your heart's in need as I drown you in the sea."
"Invisible king; dying. possession of woe struck down by sorrow."
"After all, you fell in love with death, life has aborted."

"Old naked man picked off his scabs and fed them to the pigeons, help him, he's f*****g cornered, grade him, it might be fun."

"All within me gone, but pain and hope, hoping that the pain will fade away."

"You are the God of nothing"

"Did you really think this bloody road would pave the way for you?

"Inside Crystal Mountain, evil takes its form.

"Take another hit, and bury your brother."

Tarja Turunen
I Walk Alone

Put all your angels on the edge.
Keep all the roses, I'm not dead.
I left a thorn under your bed.
I'm never gone.
Go tell the world I'm still around.
I didn't fly, I'm coming down.
You are the wind, the only sound.
Whisper to my heart when hope is torn apart
And no one can save you.
I walk alone.
Every step I take
I walk alone.
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It's never gone
When I walk alone.
Go back to sleep forever more.
Far from your fools and lock the door.
They're all around and they'll make sure:
You don't have to see what I turned out to be.
No one can help you.
I walk alone.
Every step I take
I walk alone.
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It's never gone
When I walk alone.
Waiting up in heaven I was never far from you.
Spinnging down I felt your every move.
I walk alone.
Every step I take
I walk alone.
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It's never gone
When I walk alone.

It's rare that I pay attention to lyrics, but quite a few of Pearl Jam's jump out at me. Indifference is excellent, and Wishlist is so beautiful and simple:

Quote:
I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off your Camaro's hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
I wish...
I wish...


Some of their lyrics are cryptic, some are just plain strange but the ballads are really heartfelt.

One from a song by a fellow aspie, craig nicholls of the vines, is my fav because it reminds me of myself:

"She never loved me
She never loved me
She never loved me,
Why should anyone?"

"straight shots of the sterno plus, wick stuck in the bottle empty.
3 blocks to the target we light it and lob it hard at centry,
4 pigs of the oinking variety guard the market entry,
5 minutes of flames and then aim the whistle my father lent me,
6 oclock we meet up and divi the shells among the youngins,
7 continents in the s**t and smoke like its f****n london,
just before they 8 up the funds our harmony love was bumpin,
now goverment issue 9's are pointed where your blood is pumped in"

I f*****g love El-P's writing style.

"The last defender of the sprawl
Said, "Well, where do you kids live?"
Well sir, if you only knew
What the answer is worth
Been searching every corner
Of the earth" -- Arcade Fire

"Somethin' filled up
my heart with nothin',
someone told me not to cry.

But now that I'm older,
my heart's colder,
and I can see that it's a lie.

Children wake up,
hold your mistake up,
before they turn the summer into dust.

If the children don't grow up,
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
We're just a million little gods causin' rain storms turnin' every good thing to
rust.

I guess we'll just have to adjust." -- Arcade Fire, Wake Up

The entirety of Antichrist Television Blue, but posting it here would take away the impact. You have to hear the song. It's about the whole thing of parents forcing their children into pop stardom and claiming it's for a better cause than money (in this case, God) and it actually manages to make the whole thing a bit sympathetic.

"I like the peace
in the backseat,
I don't have to drive,
I don't have to speak,
I can watch the country side,
and I can fall asleep.

My family tree's
losing all its leaves,
crashing towards the driver's seat,
the lightning bolt made enough heat
to melt the street beneath your feet.

Alice died
in the night,
I've been learning to drive.
My whole life,
I've been learning." -- Arcade Fire, In the Back Seat, about a real-life death in the family

It's drunk out tonight, it's settlin' like the dew
and i have even noticed that the walls are plastered, too
the bartender's staggerin' - he's surely had his share
so let's have another round, we can't go home-
it's too dern drunk out there.
kelly was a drinkin' man, he'd drink from night 'til morn
you could always find him at a bar, soakin' up the corn
when closin' time would come around, they'd start to throw him out
he'd get a grip upon the bar and then he'd loudly shout
"oh it's drunk out tonight, it's settlin' like the dew
and i have even noticed that the walls are plastered, too
the bartender's staggerin' - he's surely had his share
so let's have another round, we can't go home-
it's too dern drunk out there!
"
kelly's wife came a'huntin' him, with murder in her eye
she found him at his usual spot, soakin' up the rye
she got ol' kelly by the arm, and started for the door
he got a firm grip on the bar and shouted then once more,
"oh it's drunk out tonight, it's settlin' like the dew
and i have even noticed that the walls are plastered, too
the bartender's staggerin'- he's surely had his share
so let's have another round, we can't go home
it's too dern drunk out there!
"
kelly went out on new year's eve, to spread a little cheer
he tried to drink up everything and ended up on beer
a cop come over to his automobile for just a little talk
says "are ya figurin' on a'drivin' home?
he says "sure, i'm too drunk to walk!"
oh it's drunk out tonight, it's settlin' like the dew
and i have even noticed that the walls are plastered, too
the bartender's staggerin'- he's surely had his share
so let's have another round, we can't go home
it's too dern drunk out there!

And the winds of change keep on blowing.

I have nothing left to give
I have found a perfect end
You were made to make it hurt
Disappear into the dirt

Carry me to heaven's arms
Light the way and let me go
Take the time to take my breath
I will end where I began

And I will find the enemy within
'Cause I can feel it crawl beneath my skin

Dear agony, just let go of me
Suffer slowly, is this the way it's got to be, dear agony?

Suddenly the lights go out
Let forever drag me down
I will fight for one last breath
I will fight until the end

And I will find the enemy within
'Cause I can feel it crawl beneath my skin

Dear agony, just let go of me
Suffer slowly, is this the way it's got to be?
Don't bury me, faceless enemy
I'm so sorry, is this the way it's got to be, dear agony?

Leave me alone, God, let me go
All blue and cold, black sky will burn
Love, pull me down, hate, lift me up
Just turn around, there's nothing left

Somewhere far beyond this world
I feel nothing anymore

Dear agony, just let go of me
Suffer slowly, is this the way it's got to be?
Don't bury me faceless enemy
I'm so sorry, is this the way it's got to be, Dear agony?

I feel nothing anymore

Quote:
She stares at the screen, at the little words of green
Tries to do remember what to do next
There's a trace of frustration that crosses her face
Searching for the key she should press
And I would help her if I only know how
But these things are a mystery to me too
And it seems that the Corporate eyes they are watching
She fears for her job and the moments are passing
I stare at her nametag and I think to myself
Both you and I, we never asked for any of this

So let's take a walk up past the chemical works
Where the sky turns green at night
And we'll talk about getting away from here
Some different kind of life
But even in the freshest mountain air
The jet fighters practise overhead
And they're drilling these hills for uranium deposits
And they'll bury the waste for our children to inherit
And though this is all done for our own benefit,
I swear we never asked for any of this

]This golden age of communication
Means everyone talks at the same time
And liberty just means the freedom to exploit
Any weakness that you can find
Turn off the TV just for a while
Let us whisper to each other instead
And we'll hope that the Corporate ears do not listen
Lest we find ourselves committing some kind of treason
And filed in the tapes without rhyme, without reason
While they tell us that it's all for our own protection,
I swear we never asked for any of this

Quote:
Dear God
Please don’t let my face explode
Please don’t let my bones fall out
Please don’t turn my nipples into giant screaming heads
Don’t let Bjork and Dracula
Make out with my spatula
Please don’t let my bud be confiscated by the feds
These things I do implore thee
O God please don’t ignore me
I may be paranoid as hell but who made me that way?
This world is really scary
And that is why I’m very concerned about all that could happen today
(Dear God!)
Don’t stick me ‘tween two irate
Rhinos who are trying to mate
Don’t replace the raisins in my bagels with dead flies
Please don’t let my spleen expire
Please don’t set my mom on fire
Please don’t let my wife be Gilbert Gottfried in disguise
O God why won’t you listen
I’ve been a perfect Christian
Except for all the blasphemy and heresy and sin
Not looking for direction
Just asking for protection from this screwed-up world that you have stuck me in
(Dear God!)
Please don’t let my sperm mutate
Grow until they’re six foot eight
Start a revolution and devour me from within
Please don’t turn my Pepsi One
Into rancid bison dung
Please don’t let me be gang-raped by Teletubbies again
It’s not that I’m not grateful
In fact I’m very faithful
Whenever I had to fart in church I always held it in
I’ll follow you forever
Just promise that you’ll never let anything bad happen to me again

(Spoken part)
Dear God!
Please don’t let Optimus Prime be waiting for me in my bedroom with a bouquet of flowers and a strap-on. Please don’t let me be reincarnated as Star Jones’ bicycle seat. Please don’t let me be force-fed crowbar sandwiches while a screaming horde of inbred nuns seductively rub my wife’s armpits with a croissant. Please don’t let Aquaman be living in my toilet. Please don’t let me be impregnated by a cross-eyed accountant in a day-glo green crotchless lobster costume. Please don’t let Jell-O shoot from every orifice in my body every time I see a rake. Please don’t let the IRS decide to pay me my tax refund in Miracle Whip. And please, God, don’t strike me with lightning for writing this song!

It’s not that I’m not grateful
In fact I’m very faithful
‘Sides Allah said he’d do it so don’t make me turn to him
I’ll follow you forever
Just promise that you’ll never let anything bad happen to me
Never let anything bad happen to me
Never let anything bad happen to me
Never let anything bad happen to me again

"I'm trying to get to memory lane.
But wonder should I take the train
-of thought,
Or hop on the mental plane?
I don't stay far, but this ain't a place you can get to in a car.
Travel, standing still is bizarre, but there you are."

"Elzhi - Memory Lane - Elmatic"

A remake of Nas's pivotal "Ilmatic" using a live band.
Recommended. Very much so. :)

Feel no pain, but my life ain't easy
I know I'm my best friend
No one cares, but I'm so much stronger
I'll fight until the end
To escape from the true false world
Undamaged destiny
Can't get caught in the endless circle
Ring of stupidity

Out on my own, out to be free
One with my mind, they just can't see
No need to hear things that they say
Life is for my own to live my own way

Rape my mind and destroy my feelings
Don't tell me what to do
I don't care now, 'cause I'm on my side
And I can see through you
Feed my brain with your so called standards
Who says that I ain't right
Break away from your common fashion
See through your blurry sight

Out on my own, out to be free
One with my mind, they just can't see
No need to hear things that they say
Life is for my own to live my own way

See they try to bring the hammer down
No damn chains can hold me to the ground
Life is for my own to live my own way
