"Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen. A pessimistic look at the world.

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

^^^^
I prefer Johnette Napolitano's (Concrete Blonde) voice to this song


I'm in love with the whole song posted below and have been since I first heard it when the The Crow soundtrack came out.
Full of one liners I love and some I relate to

Color me once - Violent Femmes

Color me once, color me twice.
Everything gonna turn out nice.
Everlasting arms, you gotta keep me from these false alarms.

Alarm, alarm I see you sad,
maybe I see you I'm glad,
maybe maybe the fire of her desire.

Patience, patience, said the man.
Patience, patience, I can't understand.
Patience like a man and a wife, I got patience on my neck like a cold cold knife.

I say Jack be nimble, Jack fall dead,
Jack bend over and give Jilly head.
Oh you gotta help my body heal my soul.

Dead men working a sinner, a saint,
mixing up a pail of paint,
painted the house, black as night.

When the sun came up the house was white.

Gotta go on, gotta go on.
we gotta go on, you gotta go on,
you gotta go on
go on
go on

I like it when i hear hotel yorba from the white stripes and singing the
"Well it's 1 2 3 4
Take the elevator
At the hotel yorba
I'll be glad to see you later
All they got inside is vacancy"

Lost
On a painted sky
Where the clouds are hung
For the poet's eye
You may find him
If you may find him......

While the sand
Would become the stone
Which begat the spark
Turned to living bone

Mean Mr mustard..........Beatles
"Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose"

To funny

Also "I am the walrus" has quite a few


See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly
I'm crying

Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come

Corporation teeshirt, stupid bloody Tuesday

I am the eggman, they are the eggmen


I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob...Love it

Lets not talk about bombs or the brain impulses of severed limbs,
You will always remove your arms from my arms.
Someone always interrupts us when we talk so I'm going to draw this evenings line,
Before my wash hangs on it for everyone to see.

Its very bad luck to draw the line on the night before the world ends,
We can draw the line some other time.

"If I could stick my pen in my heart, I'd spill it all over the stage..." - The Rolling Stones

"Everything that I can say to you won't help you. Everything you need is right in front of you. Just take it." - Staind

"If there were no reward to reap - no loving embrace to see me through this tedious path I've chosen here - I certainly would have walked away. If there were no desire to heal the damaged and broken met along this tedious path I've chosen here, I certainly would have walked away by now." - Tool

"I am surrendering to gravity and the unknown. Catch me. Heal me. Lift me back up to the sun." - A Perfect Circle

"Life. It's bigger - bigger than you, and you are not me." - R.E.M.

"...get aware, wake up, get a sense of humor.

I bring him when I walk.
Me and my axe will leave your head outlined in chalk." - ICP

Power Slave by Iron Maiden

When the Life Giver dies,
All around is laid waste,
And in my last hour,
I'm a Slave to the Power of Death.

death is infinite
we'll all be dead a long time

Joel Faviere If You Knew
I like these lyrics..:They think you're crazy. They think you're mad. They call you stupid, worthless, tell you you're not worth it.
Now you're walkin' back, to a place you call home, but you feel so alone.
And if they, if they really knew all of those things.
That you do in your room, to hide the pain.
I bet their minds would change.
They'd change, If they knew the pain.
I believe in these scars, I believe
..

Haven't heard this song, but the lyrics may like..
Sufjan Stevens Should Have Known Better:I should have known better
To see what I could see
My black shroud
Holding down my feelings
A pillar for my enemies
I should have wrote a letter
And grieve what I happen to grieve
I never trust my feelings
I waited for the remedy
I'm light as a feather
Frightened by my feelings
I only want to be a relief
No, I'm not a go-getter
Captain of my feelings
The only thing I want to believe
I should have known better
Nothing can be changed
The past is still the past
The bridge to nowhere
Explaining what I feel, that empty feeling
Don't back down, concentrate on seeing
Don't back down, there is nothing left
Rose of Aaron's beard
nothing can be changed
..

The Bangle He's Got A Secret: 'Cause I'll never tell.

The Bangle More Then Meets the Eye: He takes a picture Hangs it up to dry.

The Bangle Restless:But if you wanna love
You wanna love another girl
I'll leave it up to you
But I won't be tested
(You feel restless now)
While you feel restless (restless).
Now I'm wondering every time that you hold me
Well, should I question anything you have told me.

The Bangle Bell Jar:But there's a sadness
Hidden in the bizarre
Moonlight and madness
Living in a bell jar

She dresses in black
Cuz sorrow is a magnet
Everything comes to her like it was meant to be
But she's frustrated
Leaving things as they are
What she created

She feels so at home
She's never alone
But she's oh so lonely
What is the crime
In knowing your mind
Set it free

Attached to a mirror
She writes the note that will excuse her from this world
It's complicated
She suffocated

I love this song by Garbage from the mid 1990s...

"Only Happy When It Rains"

I'm only happy when it rains 
I'm only happy when it's complicated 
And though I know you can't appreciate it 
I'm only happy when it rains 

You know I love it when the news is bad 
And why it feels so good to feel so sad 
I'm only happy when it rains 

Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me 
Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me 

I'm only happy when it rains 
I feel good when things are going wrong 
I only listen to the sad, sad songs 
I'm only happy when it rains 

I only smile in the dark 
My only comfort is the night gone black 
I didn't accidentally tell you that 
I'm only happy when it rains 

You'll get the message by the time I'm through 
When I complain about me and you 
I'm only happy when it rains 

Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down) 
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down) 
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down) 
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down) 
Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down) 
Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down) 
Pour your misery down 

You can keep me company 
As long as you don't care 

I'm only happy when it rains 
You wanna hear about my new obsession? 
I'm riding high upon a deep depression 
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) 

I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) 
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) 
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) 
I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me).

Glenn Frey:

"There's another kind of poverty
That only rich men know
A moral malnutrition
That starves their very souls

And they can't be saved by money
They're all running out of time
And all the while they're thinkin'
"It's okay 'cause I've got mine"

I've got mine, I've got mine
I don't want a thing to change
'Cause I've got mine"

There are many, but this'll do for now...


Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reel
A fatal attraction is holding me fast
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unladen, empty and turned to stone

A soul in tension, that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss
Can't keep my mind from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I.

(Pink Floyd)

Ok, how 'bout some more...


The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
of the big lake they called "Gitche Gumee"
The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
when the skies of November turn gloomy
With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more
than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty,
that big ship and true was a bone to be chewed
when the Gales of November came early

The ship was the pride of the American side
coming back from some mill in Wisconsin
As the big freighters go, it was bigger than most
with a crew and good captain well seasoned,
concluding some terms with a couple of steel firms
when they left fully loaded for Cleveland
And later that night when the ship's bell rang,
could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'?

The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
and a wave broke over the railing
And ev'ry man knew, as the captain did too
'twas the witch of November come stealin'
The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait
when the Gales of November came slashin'
When afternoon came it was freezin' rain
in the face of a hurricane west wind

When suppertime came the old cook came on deck sayin'
"Fellas, it's too rough t'feed ya"
At seven P.M. a main hatchway caved in; he said,
"Fellas, it's bin good t'know ya!"
The captain wired in he had water comin' in
and the good ship and crew was in peril
And later that night when 'is lights went outta sight
came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

Does any one know where the love of God goes
when the waves turn the minutes to hours?
The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
if they'd put fifteen more miles behind 'er
They might have split up or they might have capsized;
they may have broke deep and took water
And all that remains is the faces and the names
of the wives and the sons and the daughters

Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
in the rooms of her ice-water mansion
Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams;
the islands and bays are for sportsmen
And farther below Lake Ontario
takes in what Lake Erie can send her,
And the iron boats go as the mariners all know
with the Gales of November remembered

In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed,
in the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral
The church bell chimed 'til it rang twenty-nine times
for each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald
The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
of the big lake they call "Gitche Gumee"
"Superior," they said, "never gives up her dead
when the gales of November come early"

(Gordon Lightfoot)


"My son ask for thyself another
Kingdom, for that which I leave
is too small for thee"
(King Philip of Macedonia - 339 B.C.)

Near to the east
In a part of ancient Greece
In an ancient land called Macedonia
Was born a son
To Philip of Macedon
The legend his name was Alexander

At the age of nineteen
He became the Macedon King
And he swore to free all of Asia Minor
By the Aegean Sea
In 334 B.C.
He utterly beat the armies of Persia

[Chorus:]
Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a legend 'mongst mortal men

King Darius the third
Defeated fled Persia
The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well
And he founded the city called Alexandria

By the Tigris river
He met King Darius again
And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon
And Susa, treasures he found
Took Persepolis the capital of Persia

[Chorus:]
Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a God amongst mortal men

A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke
And Alexander cut the 'Gordian knot'
And legend said that who untied the knot
He would become the master of Asia

Hellenism he spread far and wide
The Macedonian learned mind
Their culture was a western way of life
He paved the way for Christianity

Marching on, marching on
The battle weary marching side by side
Alexander's army line by line
They wouldn't follow him to India
Tired of the combat, pain and the glory

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
He died of fever in Babylon

(Iron Maiden)


And possibly my all time favorite...

Longer than there've been fishes
in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars
up in the heavens
I've been in love with you.
Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you.
I'll bring fires in the winters
You'll send showers in the springs
We'll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings.
Through the years as the fire
starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the
pages start to yellow
I'll be in love with you.
Longer than there've been fishes
in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars
up in the heavens
I've been in love with you
I am in love with you.

(Dan Fogelberg)

et etc to be cont.

MaroonFive DayLight

Here I am waiting
I'll have to leave soon
Why am I holding on?
We knew this day would come
We knew it all along
How did it come so fast?

This is our last night but it's late
And I'm trying not to sleep
Cause I know, when I wake, I will have to slip away

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Here I am staring at your perfection
In my arms, so beautiful
The sky is getting bright, the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down

This is way too hard, cause I know
When the sun comes up, I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memory

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I never want it to stop
Because I don't wanna start all over
Start all over
I was afraid of the dark
But now it's all that I want
All that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa (yeah), oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (yeah)
Oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

...

Hozier Cherry Wine

Her eyes and words are so icy
Oh but she burns
Like rum on the fire
Hot and fast and angry as she can be

The way she tells me I'm hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

Calls of guilty thrown at me
Thrown at me so powerfully

Her fight and fury is fiery
Oh but she loves
Like sleep to the freezing
Sweet and right and merciful
I'm all but washed
In the tide of her breathing.

And it's worth it, it's divine
I have this some of the time.

-- Hozier My Love Will Never Die

You've done
Me wrong
For a long
long time

But after all
You've done
I never changed
My mind

Honey please
Try to love me
Honey please
Honey try
My love will never die

Flowers
Flowers grow
Where I'm laid
To rest

Honey pick
A blossom
And hold it
Hold it
To your breast

Honey you know
That's my love
Bursting loud
From inside

My love
Oh my love my love
will never die

-- Hozier In the Woods Somewhere

My head was warm,
My skin was soaked.
I called your name 'til the fever broke.

When I awoke
The moon still hung.
The night so black that the darkness hums.

I raised myself.
My legs were weak.
I prayed my mind be good to me.

An awful noise
Filled the air.
I heard a scream
In the woods somewhere.

A woman's voice!
I quickly ran
Into the trees with empty hands.

A fox it was,
He shook afraid.
I spoke no words,
No sound he made.

His bone exposed,
His hind was lame.
I raised a stone to end his pain.

What caused the wound?
How large the teeth?
I sure knew eyes were watching me.

The creature lunged.
I turned and ran
To save a life I didn't have.

Dear in the chase
There as I flew
Forgot all prayers of joining you.

I clutched my life
And wished it kept.
My dearest love
I'm not done yet.

How many years
I know I'll bear
I found something in the woods somewhere.

Better Than Love (Griffen House)
...Sometimes dreams they don't come true
I was scared that night when I met you
Well I stayed patient and I stayed kind
Telling you to take your time

To do something, do something
It's too easy not to care
You're not ready for the rockin' chair
Get up and do something, do something
Don't wait too long even if it's wrong
