Maybe a bit to cryptic and mystical for most peoples taste but thats why i like it so much.


Carrier Of Wounds By Ved Buens Ende (who?)

I slumber throught my years, like the desert moves with the wind.
Frozen and flickering, the lustful year has met its end.
A wanderer I am indeed...
...the son of the moon...
and I will carry mountains soon.

A burden I was for those who woke the sun.
I threw their masks away, lit my torches and burned their eyes.

Forgiven I never was.

But I will carry mountains soon.
A burden, is it not?

Kneeling I chose my faith,
while they lit the sun, and flew naked and blind over my desert fields.


Coiled In Wings, again by Ved Buens Ende

A shelter for me in the storm,
to faint, and see ravens fly.
I am the one worthy, to carry those born with wings.

Swim with me, meet my dreamking...

See my broken wings,
and my feathers
the dust in my eyes.

My beautiful wounds are open
for you to see my dreams...

A withering thought for the desert storm..

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to..
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now, here he comes!
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined when you were young

Can we climb this mountain? I don't know
Higher now than ever before
I know we can make it if we take it slow
Let's take it easy
Easy now, watch it go!
We're burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane
That started turning when you were young

When you were young

And sometimes you close your eyes and see the place where you used to live
When you were young


You say the devil's water, it ain't so sweet
You don't have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once in a little while

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to..
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now, here he comes!

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined when you were young
When you were young

I said he doesn't look a thing like Jesus
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus

But more than you'll ever know.

Queensryche - Anybody Listening?

You and I
long to live like the wind upon the water
If we close our eyes,
We'll maybe realize
There's more to life than what we have known.
And I can't believe I've spent so long
living lies I know were wrong inside,
I've just begun to see the light...

Long ago there was a dream,
had to make a choice or two,
Leaving all I loved behind,
for what nobody knew -
Stepped out on the stage, a life
under lights and judging eyes,
Now the applause has died and I
can dream again...

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what's going on?
Read between the lines,
criticize the words they're selling,
Think for yourself and feel the walls
become sand beneath your feet

Feel the breeze?
Time's so near you can almost taste the freedom.
There's a warm wind from the south.
Hoist the sail and we'll be gone,
by morning this will all seem like a dream.
And if you don't return to sing the song,
maybe just as well.
I've seen the news
And there's not much I can do...alone

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone who smiles without a mask?
What's behind the words?
Images they know will please us -
I'll take what's real, bring up the lights.

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what's going on?
Read between the lines,
criticize the words they're selling.
Think for yourself and feel the walls...
become sand beneath your feet.

"At Full Speed" by Jack's Mannequin

Should the canyons burn
All night long like the 4th of July
We won't need an alibi
There's gas in the car
Hours 'til sunrise
And there's no guarantee
That leaving town's gonna set us both free
But stayin' here, it's just not what we need
Yeah, stayin' here, it's just not what we need

Because America shines, yes it does
In between the white lines where I found love
All alone on a road going nowhere
Going nowhere
Going nowhere
At full speed

And I have travelled far
And I've seen things that I'd rather not say
When you're travellin' it's better that way
The darker the secret, the harder you'll keep it
But it's no victory
Always running away like I do
Always know that I'll come back to you
Always know that I'll come back to you

Because America shines, yes it does
In between the white lines where I found love
All alone on a road going nowhere
Going nowhere
Going nowhere
At full speed
At full speed

Because America shines, yes it does
In between the white lines where I found love
All alone on a road going nowhere
Going nowhere
Going nowhere
At full speed
Alone on a road going nowhere
Going nowhere
Going nowhere
At full speed

And should the canyons burn
I'm catching right off the coast

"The Nostalgia Factory" by Porcupine Tree

A Caterpillar crawled to me one day and said
"Oh what the hell goes on inside your swollen head?
I don't believe that you can see as much as I
Now close your eyes and tell me what do you say?"

"I watched nine cats dance on the moon
A flamingo stalked into my room
It bowed its head to me and knelt
To reveal the cards it had dealt
An ace, three jacks, two queens, four kings
Then turned them into burning rings
The flames jumped out and chased four mice
Caught by their tails they turned to ice

A cloud appeared outside my door
And through the window saw four more
And on the back of each cloud sat
Two rainbow smiles in wizard's hats
They threw five clocks down on my bed
The chimes danced out on golden threads
And turned to footprints on my wall
Sequined tears began to fall"

The caterpillar gasped at me and said
"My god if that's what's going on inside your head
You can see so much more than I
I think it's time to turn into a butterfly."

Never thought you'd make me perspire
Never thought I'd do you the same
Never thought I'd fill with desire
Never thought I'd feel so ashamed
Me and the dragon can chase all the pain away
So before I end my day, remember..
My sweet prince, you are the one
My sweet prince
You are the one

Never thought I'd have to retire
Never thought I'd have to abstain
Never thought all this could back fire
Close up the hole in my vain
Me and my valuable friend
Can fix all the pain away
So before I end my day
Remember
My sweet prince
you are the one
My sweet prince
you are the one
you are the one...

Never thought I'd get any higher
Never thought you'd f**k with my brain
Never thought all this could expire
Never thought you'd go break the chain
Me and you baby, still flush all the pain away
So before I end my day..
Remember

My sweet prince
You are the one
My sweet prince
You are the one
You are the one...

My sweet prince....

Ministry- "Brick Windows"

Been bangin' my head against the window

Just trying to see the world outside

Some people say it doesn't matter

Some people take you for a ride

I am covered in blood and broken glass

It seems the window likes to fight

Some people say the world's on fire

Some people say the world's on ice

Some people say the world's on ice

all alone in a relation

Brick windows

I am sticking my face right through the glass

Just trying to see if the world's alive

Some people will say the window's broken

Some people will say it's all right

Some people will say it's all right

Keep bangin' my head against the wall

Just trying to keep the past alive

Some people who make the windows shatter

Some people who make it airtight

Some people who make it airtight

all alone in a relation

all alone in a relation

Brick windows

Brick windows

Saul Williams- "List Of Demands"

I want my money back. I'm down here drowning in your fat. You got me on my knees praying for everything you lack. I ain't afraid of you. I'm just a victim of your fears. You cower in your tower praying that I'll disappear, I got another plan, one that requires me to stand. On the stage or in the street, don't need no microphone or beat. And when you hear this song, if you ain't dead then sing along. Bang and strum to these here drums til you get where you belong.

I got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands. I ball my fist and you're gonna know where I stand. We're living hand to mouth! You wanna be somebody? See somebody? Try and free somebody? I gotta list of demands written on the palm of my hands. I ball my fist and you're gonna know where I stand. We're living hand to mouth! Hand to mouth!

I wrote a song for you today while I was sitting in my room. I jumped up on my bed today and played it on a broom. I didn't think that it would be a song that you would hear, but when I played it in my head, I made you reappear. I wrote a video for it and I acted out each part. Then I took your picture out and taped it to my heart. I've taped you to my heart dear girl, I've taped you to my heart and if you pull away from me you'll tear my life apart..

I got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands. I ball my fist and you're gonna know where I stand. We're living hand to mouth! You wanna be somebody? See somebody? Try and free somebody? I gotta list of demands written on the palm of my hands. I ball my fist and you're gonna know where I stand. We're living hand to mouth! Hand to mouth!

Ecstacy, suffering, Echinacea, bufferin. We aim to remember what we choose to forget. God's just a baby and her diaper is wet.
Call the police! I'm strapped to the teeth and liable to disregard your every belief. Call on the law! I'm fixin' to draw a line between what is and seems and call up a brawl. Call'em up now! 'cause it's about to go pow! I'm standing on the threshold of the ups and the downs. Call up a truce! 'cause I'm about to bust loose. Protect ya neck,'cause, son, I'm breaking out of my noose.

I got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands. I ball my fist and you're gonna know where I stand. We're living hand to mouth! You wanna be somebody? See somebody? Try and free somebody? I gotta list of demands written on the palm of my hands. I ball my fist and you're gonna know where I stand. We're living hand to mouth! Hand to mouth!

An excerpt of one of the best lines from the song, Wilted Rose, by Steven Page:

I spent my youth, thinking people spoke the truth.
Now it's hard to think.

The Gathering- Shrink

To feel this great urge
To hold and embrace you
I slowly dry out

I shrink and shrink
Until I'm gone
Nothing to make out of me
Oh what the hell went wrong?

My heart gets pulled out
Into your direction
It's no use
You have forsaken me

"Girl from the north country", by Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.



"The more you ignore me, the closer I get", by Morrissey

The more you ignore me
The closer I get
You're wasting your time
The more you ignore me
The closer I get
You're wasting your time

I will be
In the bar
With my head
On the bar
I am now
A central part
Of your mind's landscape
Whether you care
Or do not
Yeah, I've made up your mind

The more you ignore me
The closer I get
You're wasting your time
The more you ignore me
The closer I get
You're wasting your time

Beware !
I bear more grudges
Than lonely high court judges
When you sleep
I will creep
Into your thoughts
Like a bad debt
That you can't pay
Take the easy way
And give in
Yeah, and let me in
Oh, let me in
Oh let me ...
Oh, let me in
It´s war
It´s war
It´s war
It´s war
It´s war

war
war
war
war

Oh, let me in
Ah, the closer I get
Ah, you're asking for it
Ah, the closer I get
Ooh, the closer I ...



" 10.000 Miles", by Mary Chapin Carpenter

Fare thee well
My own true love
Farewell for a while
Im going away
But Ill be back
Though I go 10,000 miles

10,000 miles
My own true love
10,000 miles or more
The rocks may melt
And the seas may burn
If I should not return

Oh dont you see
That lonesome dove
Sitting on an ivy tree
Shes weeping for
Her own true love
As I shall weep for mine

Oh come ye back
My own true love
And stay a while with me
If I had a friend
All on this earth
You´ve been a friend to me

Ministry- What About Us?



Just like another speck of dust that's on the highway of life,
He Screams at anyone who'll listen that the end is in sight,
So then he circles the wagons or he just circles then quits
Cause the Highway could become- the final battling pit??
So when the company wants, Another problem resolved,
Or if the company wants a choice of nothing at all,
Point your thumb out to the highway through the heat and the dust,
And raise your finger in the middle till you shout:

"What About Us!"

Just like another last call, it means nothing at all,
You either kiss a lot of ass, or tear the clock off the wall,
Another warning ignored another sign of the times,
They say the sky is gonna fall, so why not drink till your blind
So when the company wants another company-man,
Or when the company wants another 1,000 year plan
You'll let your boot go up the road you cannot possibly trust,
Till the screaming hits the ceiling and you ask:

"What About Us?"

Don't follow my path to extinction, if I had a mind I'd leave it alone,
We speak of alteration,
Like a journey to the inside of carnal-fiction,
Release yourself where the predator prays, rewind your mind, freeze your world apart.

Wage war on the eye which cannot see, destroy the temple of emptiness,
and what about them in the wake of damnation,
and what about us? Do We come from God?"


just like the old soft shoe or the old song and dance
The only check that's in the mail is prob'ly already cashed
Are you a victim of chance? is this the way to succeed?
or just a crack in the wall of what the people believe,
So when the company wants the final weapon online,
When the company wants to repossess your mind,
You gotta wonder if the fear that we loathe or trust
Would ever waste a precious second trying to answer:

What about us

Do We Come from God?
What about them

Pearl Jam-Dissident

She nursed him there, ooh, over a night
I wasn't so sure she wanted him to stay
What to say...what to say
But soon she was down, soon he was low
At a quarter past...a holy no...
She had to turn around

When she couldn't hold, oh...she folded...
A dissident is here
Escape is never, the safest path
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here

And to this day, shes glided on
Always home but so far away
Like a word misplaced
Nothing said, what a waste
When she had contact...with the conflict...
There was meaning, but she sold him to the state
She had to turn around

When she couldn't hold...she folded...
A dissident is here
Escape is never, the safest path
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here, oh...oh...oh...

She gave him away when she couldn't hold...no...she folded...
A dissident is here escape is never, the safest path
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here, oh...
Couldn't hold on...she couldn't hold...no...she folded...
A dissident is here
Escape is never the safest place, oh...
A dissident is here

Artist: Bad Religion
Genre: Punk Rock
Song: Them and Us

Let's go!

Despite that he saw blatant similiarity,
He struggled to find a simple moeity,
All he found was vulgar superficiality,
But he focused it to sharpness,
And shared it with the others,
It signified his hatred and his misery

Them and Us!
Lobbying determined through a mire of disbelievers,
Them and Us!
Dire perpetration and incongruous insistence,
That there really is a difference between them and us!

Hate is a simple manifestation,
Of the deep-seated self-directed frustration,
All it does is promote fear and consternation,
It's the inability,
To justify the enemy,
And it fills us all with trepidation!

Them and Us!
Bending the significant to match a whimsied fable,
Them and Us!
Tulmut for the ignorant and purpose for the violent,
A confused loose alliance forming,
Them and us!

I heard him say,
"We can take them all!"
(We can take them all!)
We can take them all!
(That's what he said.)
(We can take them all!)
But he didn't know who we were,
and he didn't know who they were,
and there wasn't any reason or motive
or value to his story,
just allegory, imitation glory,
and a desperate feeble search for a friend!

Go.

Them and us!
Lobbying determined through a mire of disbelievers.
Them and us!
Dire perpetuation and incongruous insistence.
Tumult for the ignorant, a purpose for the violence.
A confused loose alliance forming
them and us!
We can take them all!
We can take them all..
