    From Walla Walla By the Offspring

    That car looked so tempting
    so easy to drive
    just like that appartment
    that you burgularised

    you started to run
    but didnt get far
    'cos under your arm
    was a vcr

    makes me laugh every time

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    Was dancing to this one on Saturday. Great blues track.

    Put a dead cat on the railroad tracks
    When the wolf bains blooming by the tressel
    And get the eyeball of a rooster
    And the stones from a ditch
    And wash em down with bilge water
    And you say you’ll never snitch
    Take the buttons from a yellow jacket
    The feather from a buzzard
    And the blood from a bounty hunters cold black heart
    Catch the tears of a widow
    In a thimble made of glass
    Tell your mama and papa
    They can kick your ass
    Poison all the water in the wishin' well
    And hang all them scarecrows from a sycamore tree
    Burn down all those honeymoons
    Put em in a pillow case
    And wait next to the switch blades
    At the amusement park for me
    Strangle all the christmas carols
    Scratch out all your prayers
    Tie em up with barbed wire
    And push them down the stairs
    And I’ll whittle you a pistol
    For keeping nightmares of the blinds
    Those sons of bitches always seem to sneak up from behind
    Syphon all the gas from your daddys pickup truck
    Fill up Johnny's t bird
    I got a couple of bucks
    Put a little perfume and ribbon in your hair
    Careful that you don’t wake up the hounds
    Tear a bolt of lightning
    Of the side of the sky
    And throw it in the cedar chest
    If you want to tell me why
    Bring the gear shift knob from a 49 merc
    And lay down here beside me
    Let me hold you in the dirt
    And you’ll tremble as the flames
    Tear the throat out of the night
    Sink your teeth into my shoulder
    Dig your nails into my back
    Tell that little girl to let go of my sleeve
    You’ll be a woman when I catch you
    As you fall in love with me
    Then with my double barrel shotgun
    And a whole box of shells
    We’ll celebrate the 4 of july
    We’ll do 100 mph
    Spendin someone elses dough
    And we’ll drive all the way to Reno
    On the wrong side of the road

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    There's a nail in the door
    And there's glass on the lawn
    Tacks on the floor
    And the TV is on
    And I always sleep with my guns when you're gone

    There's a blade by the bed
    And a phone in my hand
    A dog on the floor
    And some cash on the nightstand
    When I'm all alone the dreaming stops
    And I just can't stand

    What should I do I'm just a little baby
    What if the lights go out
    And maybe and then the wind just starts to moan
    Outside the door he followed me home

    So goodnight moon
    I want the sun
    If it's not here soon
    I might be done
    No it won?t be too soon 'til I say goodnight moon

    There's a shark in the pool
    And a witch in the tree
    A crazy old neighbor and he's been watching me
    And there's footsteps loud and strong coming down the hall
    Something's under the bed
    Now it's out in the hedge
    There's a big black crow sitting on my window ledge
    And I hear something scratching through the wall

    What should I do I'm just a little baby
    What if the lights go out
    And maybe and then the wind just starts to moan
    Outside the door he followed me home
    So goodnight moon
    I want the sun
    If it's not here soon
    I might be done
    No it won't be too soon 'til I say goodnight moon

    I'd not seen your post till today, so the fact that I played it last night was pure coincidence.

    I was thinking about that mad video clip of the monkey messing with tigers, and a song which is apparently important in black culture came to mind...

    SAID THE SIGNIFYIN` MONKEY
    TO THE LION ONE DAY,
    `HEY, THERE`S A GREAT BIG ELEPHANT
    DOWN THE WAY,
    GOIN` `ROUND, TALKIN`,
    I`M SORRY TO SAY,
    ABOUT YOUR MAMA
    IN A SCANDALOUS WAY.
    YES, HE`S TALKIN`
    `BOUT YOUR MAMA
    AND YOUR GRAN`MA TOO,
    AN` HE DON`T SHOW
    TOO MUCH RESPECT FOR YOU.
    YOU WEREN`T HERE
    AN` I SURE AM GLAD,
    `CAUSE WHAT HE SAID
    ABOUT YOUR MAMA
    MADE ME MAD!`

    [Chorus]:
    SIGNIFYIN` MONKEY,
    STAY UP IN YOUR TREE;
    YOU ARE ALWAYS LYIN`
    AND SIGNIFYIN`;
    BUT YOU BETTER NOT MONKEY WITH ME.

    [verse 2]:
    THE LION SAID,
    `YEAH - WELL I`LL FIX HIM!
    I'LL TEAR THAT ELEPHANT
    LIMB FROM LIMB.`
    THEN HE SHOOK THE JUNGLE
    WITH A MIGHTY ROAR,
    TOOK OFF LIKE A SHOT
    FROM A FORTY-FOUR.
    HE FOUND THE ELEPHANT
    WHERE THE TALL GRASS GROWS
    AND SAID,
    `I COME TO PUNCH YOU
    IN YOUR LONG NOSE!`
    THE ELEPHANT LOOKED
    AT THE LION IN SURPRISE
    AND SAID, `BOY,
    YOU BETTER GO
    PICK ON SOMEBODY YOUR SIZE.`

    [verse 3]:
    BUT THE LION WOULDN`T LISTEN,
    HE MADE A PASS,
    THE ELEPHANT SLAPPED HIM
    DOWN IN THE GRASS.
    THE LION ROARED
    AND SPRANG FROM THE GROUND
    AND THAT`S WHEN THE ELEPHANT
    REALLY WENT TO TOWN.
    I MEAN HE WHIPPED THAT LION
    FOR THE REST OF THE DAY
    AND I STILL DON`T SEE HOW
    THAT LION GOT AWAY.
    BUT HE DRAGGED ON OFF,
    MORE DEAD THAN ALIVE
    AND THAT`S WHEN THAT MONKEY
    STARTED HIS SIGNIFYIN` JIVE.

    [Chorus]:
    SIGNIFYIN` MONKEY,
    STAY UP IN YOUR TREE;
    YOU ARE ALWAYS LYIN`
    AND SIGNIFYIN`;
    BUT YOU BETTER NOT MONKEY WITH ME.

    [verse 4]:
    THE MONKEY LOOKED DOWN AND SAID,
    `OOOOOEEE!
    WHAT IS THIS BEAT-UP MESS I SEE?
    IS THAT YOU, LION?
    HA, HA, DO TELL,
    MAN, HE WHIPPED YOUR HEAD
    TO A FARE-THEE-WELL,
    GIVE YOU A BEATIN`
    THAT WAS ROUGH ENOUGH
    AND YOU SUPPOSED TO BE `KING OF THE JUNGLE`
    - AIN`T THAT SOME STUFF.
    YOU BIG OVERGROWN PUSSYCAT,
    DON`T YOU ROAR,
    OR I`LL HOP DOWN THERE
    AND WHIP YOU SOME MORE!`

    [verse 5]:
    THE MONKEY GOT TO LAUGHIN`
    AND JUMPIN` UP AND DOWN,
    BUT HIS FOOT MISSED THE LIMB
    AND HE PLUNGED TO THE GROUND.
    THE LION WAS ON HIM
    WITH ALL FOUR FEET,
    GONNA GRIND THAT MONKEY
    TO HAMBURGER MEAT.
    THE MONKEY LOOKED UP
    WITH TEARS IN HIS EYES,
    AND SAID, `PLEASE, MISTER LION,
    I APOLOGIZE!
    I MEANT NO HARM,
    PLEASE LEMME GO
    AND I`LL TELL YOU SOMETHIN`
    YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW.`

    [Chorus]:
    SIGNIFYIN` MONKEY,
    STAY UP IN YOUR TREE;
    YOU ARE ALWAYS LYIN`
    AND SIGNIFYIN`;
    BUT YOU BETTER NOT MONKEY WITH ME.

    [verse 6]:
    THE LION STEPPED BACK
    TO HEAR WHAT HE`D SAY
    AN` THAT MONKEY SCAMPERED UP A TREE
    AND GOT AWAY.
    `WHAT I WANNA TELL YA,`
    THE MONKEY HOLLERED THEN,
    `IS IF YOU FOOL WITH ME,
    I`LL SIC THE ELEPHANT ON YOU AGAIN!`
    THE LION JUST SHOOK HIS HEAD
    AND SAID, `YOU JIVE......
    IF YOU AND YOUR MONKEY CHILDREN
    WANNA KEEP ALIVE,
    UP IN THEM TREES
    IS WHERE YOU BETTER STAY!`
    AND THAT`S WHERE THEY ARE
    TO THIS VERY DAY.

    [Chorus]:
    SIGNIFYIN` MONKEY,
    STAY UP IN YOUR TREE;
    YOU ARE ALWAYS LYIN`
    AND SIGNIFYIN`;
    BUT YOU BETTER NOT,
    NO, YOU BETTER NOT,
    YOU ARE ALWAYS LYIN`,
    SIGNIFYIN`,
    BUT YOU BETTER NOT
    MONKEY WITH ME!

    The lunatic is on the grass.
    The lunatic is on the grass.
    Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
    Got to keep the loonies on the path.

    The lunatic is in the hall.
    The lunatics are in my hall.
    The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
    And every day the paper boy brings more.

    And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
    And if there is no room upon the hill
    And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
    I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

    The lunatic is in my head.
    The lunatic is in my head
    You raise the blade, you make the change
    You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
    You lock the door
    And throw away the key
    There's someone in my head but it's not me.

    And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
    You shout and no one seems to hear.
    And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
    I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

    You started to sweat.
    Bullets from your soul.
    Sweat.
    Lost all means of self control.
    Sweat.
    Like a twenty dollar whore.
    Sweat.

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    a long one here.. and not really a song as such. Spoken to a musical background. however was listening to this one on the bus this morning and it struck a few chords, jangled a few neurons and made me think..

    Everybody's Free (to Wear Sunscreen) - Baz Luhrmann

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '97
    Wear Sunscreen

    If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
    it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
    scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
    than my own meandering experience
    I will dispense this advice now.

    Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth;
    oh never mind; you will not understand the power and
    beauty of your youth until they have faded.
    But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself
    and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before
    you and how fabulous you really looked
    You are not as fat as you imagine.

    Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
    effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.
    The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
    never crossed your worried mind;
    the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

    Do one thing everyday that scares you

    Sing!

    Don't be reckless with other people's hearts,
    don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.

    Floss!

    Don't waste your time on jealousy;
    sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind
    the race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

    Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults;
    if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

    Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

    Stretch!

    Don't feel guilty if you don't know what
    you want to do with your life
    the most interesting people I know didn't know at 22
    what they wanted to do with their lives,
    some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.

    Get plenty of calcium.

    Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.

    Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't,
    maybe you'll have children,maybe you won't,
    maybe you'll divorce at 40,
    maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary
    what ever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much
    or berate yourself either
    your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's.
    Enjoy your body,
    use it every way you can
    don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it,
    it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own..

    Dance!
    even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

    Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

    Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

    Get to know your parents,
    you never know when they'll be gone for good.

    Be nice to your siblings;
    they are the best link to your past
    and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

    Understand that friends come and go,
    but for the precious few you should hold on.
    Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle
    because the older you get,
    the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

    Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard;
    live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

    Travel.

    Accept certain inalienable truths,
    prices will rise,
    politicians will philander,
    you too will get old,
    and when you do you'll fantasise that when you were young
    prices were reasonable,
    politicians were noble
    and children respected their elders.

    Respect your elders.

    Don't expect anyone else to support you.
    Maybe you have a trust fund,
    maybe you have a wealthy spouse;
    but you never know when either one might run out.

    Don't mess too much with your hair,
    or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

    Be careful whose advice you buy, but,
    be patient with those who supply it.
    Advice is a form of nostalgia,
    dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal,
    wiping it off,
    painting over the ugly parts and recycling
    it for more than it's worth.

    But trust me on the sunscreen

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    The sun has left and forgotten me
    It’s dark, I cannot see
    Why does this rain pour down
    I’m gonna drown
    In a sea
    Of deep confusion

    Somebody told me, I don’t know who
    Whenever you are sad and blue
    And you’re feelin’ all alone and left behind
    Just take a look inside and you will find

    You gotta hold on, hold on through the night
    Hang on, things will be all right
    Even when it’s dark
    And not a bit of sparkling
    Sing-song sunshine from above
    Spreading rays of sunny love

    Just hang on, hang on to the vine
    Stay on, soon you’ll be divine
    If you start to cry, look up to the sky
    Something’s coming up ahead
    To turn your tears to dew instead

    And so I hold on to his advice
    When change is hard and not so nice
    You listen to your heart the whole night through
    Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    Seize upon that moment long ago
    One breath away and there you will be
    So young and carefree
    Again you will see
    That place in time...so gold

    Steal away into that way back when
    You thought that all would last forever
    But like the weather
    Nothing can ever...and be in time
    Stay gold

    But can it be
    When we can see
    So vividly
    A memory
    And yes you say
    So must the day
    Too, fade away
    And leave a ray of sun
    So gold

    Life is but a twinkling of an eye
    Yet filled with sorrow and compassion
    though not imagined
    All things that happen
    Will age too old
    Though gold

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    This just sums me up I think

    "Who Am I"

    Sometimes you know you push me so hard
    I don't know how I feel
    You almost make me doubt I feel at all

    It's not as though I always listen
    But there's just so much I don't hear
    Maybe I'll never be what you want
    I know that all you're asking for
    Is a little place in my heart
    But I don't find it easy to give

    Maybe I get a little selfish sometimes
    Why shouldn't I?
    I used to say I love you
    But would it make a difference this time?

    [Chorus]
    And who am I to tell you that I would never let you down
    That no-one else could love you half as much as I do now
    And who am I to tell you I'll always catch you when you fall
    Well I, I wouldn't be myself at all
    I wouldn't be myself at all, at all.

    I always find a reason why I didn't put you first
    It's not that complicated I know
    I really hate it when you shake your head like this ain't gonna work
    Maybe you'll never reap what you sow

    [Chorus]

    I didn't want to do what everybody does
    And hide the truth to find we never knew a thing about love
    Cos this is real life, real love
    And knowing what it comes down too
    It just might be enough

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    While we're talking about hugs...

    I will come to you in the daytime
    I will raise you from your sleep
    I will kiss you in four places
    As I go runnin' down your street

    I will squeeze the life right out of you
    I will make you laugh, and make you cry
    And we may never forget it
    As I make you call my name as you shout it to the blue, summer sky

    And we may never meet again
    So shed your skin lets get started
    And you will throw your arms around me
    And you will throw your arms around me

    I will come to you at nightime
    I will climb into your bed
    I will kiss you in 155 places
    As I go swim around in your head

    I will squeeze the life right out of you
    I will make you laugh, I'll make you cry
    And we may never forget it
    As I make you call my name as you shout it to the blue, summer sky

    And we may never meet again
    So shed your skin lets get started
    And you will throw your arms around me
    And you will throw your arms around me

    It ain't you
    No it ain't me
    That's not the way
    Love's supposed to be

    And it's just no good
    No it ain't right
    For you to be sitting all alone
    Crying every night

    You're down on your knees
    Scared he's gonna leave
    But if you really wanna know
    You're gonna have to let go

    ´Cause that's not love
    Love don't feel that bad
    That's not love
    It don't feel that sad
    No that's not love
    'Cause you don't feel good inside
    I don't know what it is
    But that's not love

    Inside your heart
    It's always raining
    And you're oh so tired
    Tired of your own complaining

    This is for real
    It ain't no game
    You can't measure your love
    By the depths of your pain

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    Something that I felt today, something that I heard
    Swingin' from the chandeliers, hanging on your word
    I remember watchin' you once upon a time
    Dancing from across the room in another life

    A little bit of resolve is what I need now
    Pin me down, show me how
    A little bit of resolve is what I need now
    Pin me down, show me how

    Lookin' back to find my way, never seemed so hard
    Yesterday's been laid to rest, changing of the guard
    I would never change a thing even if I could
    All the songs we used to sing, everything was good

    A little bit of resolve is what I need now
    Pin me down, show me how
    A little bit of resolve is what I need now
    Pin me down, show me how

    One more year that you're not here
    It's gone and passed you by
    What happened to you, what happened to you
    One more tear that you won't hear
    That's gone and passed you by
    What happened to you, what happened to you

    A little bit of resolve is what I need now
    Pin me down, show me how
    A little bit of resolve is what I need now
    Pin me down, show me how

    A little bit of resolve
    One more year that you're not here
    It's gone and passed you by (A little bit of resolve)
    A little bit of resolve
    One more year that you're not here
    It's gone and passed you by (A little bit of resolve)

    I'm gonna clear out my head
    I'm gonna get myself straight
    I know it's never too late
    To make a brand new start


    I'm gonna kick down the door
    I'm gonna get myself in
    I'm gonna fix up the yard
    And not fall back again


    I'm gonna CLEAN up my earth
    And build a heaven ON the ground
    Not something distant or unfound
    But something real to me
    But something real to me


    All that I can I can be
    All that I am I CAN see
    All that is mine is in my hands
    So to myself I call


    There's somewhere else I should be
    There's someone else I CAN see
    There's something more I can find
    IT'S ONLY UP TO ME


    I'm gonna clean up my earth
    And build a heaven ON the ground
    Not something distant on a cloud
    But something real to me
    But something real to me


    I'm gonna clear out my head
    I'm gonna get myself straight
    I KNOW it's never too late
    To make a brand new start
    To make a brand new start
    To make a brand new start


    Brand New Start = Paul Weller

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    I dont want to be the filler if the void is solely yours
    I dont want to be your glass of single malt whiskey
    Hidden in the bottom drawer
    I dont want to be the bandage if the wound is not mine
    Lend me some fresh air
    I dont want to be adored for what I merely represent to you
    I dont want to be to be your babysitter
    Youre a very big boy now
    I dont want to be you mother
    I didnt carry you in my womb for nine months
    Show me the back door

    (chorus)
    Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at half past six
    Well I already know that youd find some way to sneak me in and oh
    Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom
    You see its too much to ask for and Im not the doctor

    I dont want to be the sweeper of the eggshells that you walk upon
    I dont want to be your other half I believe that 1 and 1 make 2
    I dont want to be your food or the light from the fridge
    On your face at midnight
    Hey what are you hungry for
    I dont want to be the glue that holds your pieces together
    I dont want to be your idol
    See this pedestal is high and Im afraid of heights
    I dont want to be lived through
    A vicarious occasion
    Please open the window

    (repeat chorus)

    I dont want to live on someday when my motto is last week
    I dont want to be responsible for your fractured heart
    And its wounded beat
    I dont want to be a substitute for the smoke youve been inhaling
    What do you thank me
    What do you thank me for

    (repeat chorus)


    Not the Doctor - Alanis Morissette

    had to stick this on after a post Twirly did in the "what makes a good lover" thread..

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
    Turned on some music to start my day
    I lost myself in a familiar song
    I closed my eyes and I slipped away

    It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
    I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
    'till I see Marianne walk away
    I see my Marianne walkin' away

    So many people have come and gone
    Their faces fade as the years go by
    Yet I still recall as I wander on
    as clear as the sun in the summer sky

    It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
    I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
    'till I see Marianne walk away
    I see my Marianne walkin' away

    When I'm tired and thinking cold
    I hide in my music, forget the day
    and dream of a girl I used to know
    I closed my eyes and she slipped away
    She slipped awa y. She slipped away.

    It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
    I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
    'till I see Marianne walk away
    I see my Marianne walkin' away

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    Flatliner. - Maggi Hill
    ===============

    There's a tin boat with no oars drifting downstream
    down the muddy brown waters like a castaway dream
    the faded red rudder is pointing northeast
    with no current flowing all motion has ceased

    Had it all wrung out, hung up up to dry
    nothing left inside
    and the hopes and dreams in my heart
    have faded and scattered all apart

    flatliner

    there's a grey train with no wheels on an overgrown track
    facing both ways at once, can't find its way back
    there's no set destination and the sleeping cars rust
    the engineers handles sit covered with dust
    its where we stop trying, simply watch and wait
    for others to lead us away from our fate.

    In an old house with no shutters, high on a hill,
    there's views all around and a broken windmill.
    The closets are empty and the fireplace cold
    not even an ember to warm a lost soul
    had it all wrung out hung up to dry

    Had it all wrung out, hung up up to dry
    nothing ...
    and the hopes and dreams in my heart
    have faded and scattered all apart
    --------------------------------

    There are very, very few tracks that I can put on repeat, but this is one of those that I love to.

    Re: Lyrical Moments...

    I wake in the night
    to find you on my mind
    Deep in a dream,
    you'll always be
    until the end of time
    I look in your eyes
    They touch my soul
    My love is hard to hide
    I'm never alone when we're apart.
    I feel you by my side

    And here in my heart,
    where no one else will ever be
    I know who you are,
    so lock the door and throw away the key
    Save all your love
    Save your love for me
    When I'm alone at night,
    you're all I see

    I wake from a dream
    and see you by my side
    How could I belong to someone else,
    when holdin' you feels so right?
    And here in my heart
    where no one else will ever be
    We've made it so far,
    so lock the door and throw away the key

    Save all your love
    Save all your love for me
    When I'm alone at night,
    you're all I see
    Save all your love
    Save your love for me
    Don't turn your back on me
    You're all I need

    Save Your Love: Great White.
