Burn Back to the top of the page.
The Cure

"Don't look, don't look," the shadows breathe,
Whispering me away from you...
"Don't wake at night to watch her sleep,
you know that you will always lose
this trembling, adored, tousled bird-mad girl..."

But every night I burn,
Every night I call your name...
Every night I burn,
Every night I fall again...

"Oh, don't talk of love," the shadows purr,
Murmuring me away from you...
"Don't talk of worlds that never were...
The end is all that's ever true...
There's nothing you can ever say,
Nothing you can ever do..."

Still every night I burn, 
Every night I scream your name...
Every night I burn,
Every night the dream's the same...

Every night I burn,
Waiting for my only friend...
Every night I burn,
Waiting for the world to end...
Yeah, yeah...

"Just paint your face," the shadows smile,
Slipping me away from you...
"It doesn't matter how you hide,
We find you if we're wanting to...
So slide back down and close your eyes,
Sleep awhile you must be tired..."

Still every night I burn,
Every night I call your name...
Every night I burn,
Every night the dream's the same...

Every night I burn,
Screaming the animal scream...
Every night I burn,
Dreaming the crow-black dream...
Yeah, yeah...

Dreaming the crow-black dream...


Golgotha Tenement Blues Back to the top of the page.
Machines Of Loving Grace

I am the city,
I am the park,
I am glow in the motherfucking dark,
I am shocked and I seethe,
I don't want to believe
No more...

Golgotha tenement,
City of sores,
Give me your tired and your wicked,
Give me your dollar whores...
Down on the boulevard,
Children are sold to pave the way,
For your streets of gold...
Streets of gold...

I am the chosen one...


Big Empty Back to the top of the page.
Stone Temple Pilots

Drivin' faster in my car,
Falling farther from just what we are...
Smoke a cigarette and lie some more,
These conversations kill...
Falling faster in my car...

Time to take her home,
Her dizzy head is conscience laden...
Time to take a ride, 
It leaves today, no conversation...
Time to take her home,
Her dizzy head is conscience laden...
Time to wait too long, 
To wait too long, to wait to long...

Too much walking, shoes worn thin...
Too much trippin' and my soles worn thin...
Time to catch a ride it leaves today,
Her name is what it means...
Too much walkin' shoes worn thin...

Time to take her home,
Her dizzy head is conscience laden...
Time to take a ride, 
It leaves today, no conversation...
Time to take her home,
Her dizzy head is conscience laden...
Time to wait too long, 
To wait too long, to wait too long...

Conversations kill...
Conversations kill...
Conversations kill...


Dead Souls Back to the top of the page.
Nine Inch Nails

Someone take these dreams away,
That point me to another day...
A duel of personalities,
That stretch all true reality...

They keep calling me...
They keep calling me...
Keep on calling me...
They keep calling me...

When figures from the past stand tall,
And mocking voices ring the hall...
Imperialistic house of prayer,
Conquistadors who took their share...

They keep calling me,
Keep on calling me...
They keep calling me,
Keep on calling me...

Calling me, calling me...
Calling me, calling me...

They keep calling me,
Keep on calling me...
They keep calling me,
Keep on calling me...

They keep calling me,
Keep on calling me...
They keep calling me,
Keep on calling me...


Darkness Back to the top of the page.
Rage Against The Machine

Greed,
Causing innocent blood to flow,
Entire culture, lost in yo-yo throw.
They came to see, take whatever they please.
Then all they gave back was death and disease.

People were left with no choice but to decide,
To conform to a system responsible for genocide.
Responsible for genocide, responsible for genocide...

AIDS is killing the entire African nation,
And a vaccine is still supposedly under preparation.
But these governments, they don't mind the procrastination,
They say we'll kill them off, 
Take their land and go there for vacation.

My peoples' culture was strong and was pure,
And if not for that white greed, it would have endured.
My people were left with no choice but to decide,
To conform to a system.

Their minds did slay,
Their souls they cage,
You feel the rage.
This brutality can never be undone,
But the sun has not yet set.
The bass and drums and microphone a threat,
That's when you've got to get the cry from the inside,
And see that they're responsible for genocide.
Responsible for genocide, responsible for genocide...

You turn your culture down my throat,
Say I'm inferior when you're buying that dope.
You fill my mind with a false sense of history,
And then you wonder why I have no identity...?

Well, I'll strike a match and it'll catch,
And spread the light we need,
A tiny fire burning bright,
Shedding light on the darkness of greed.

A yes yes y'all,
And you don't stop
Shedding light on the darkness of greed.
A yes yes y'all,
And you don't stop
Shedding light on the darkness of greed.


Color Me Once Back to the top of the page.
Violent Femmes

Color me once,
Color me twice,
Everything gonna turn out nice...
Everlasting love, you gotta keep me from these false alarms...
Alarm, alarm I seem so sad,
Ring, ring I see her 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 coco that...
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,
(Go on...)
Gotta go on,
(Go on...)
We gotta go on,
(Go on...)
You gotta go on,
(Go on...)
We gotta go on...
(Go on...)


Ghostrider Back to the top of the page.
Rollins Band

Alan Vega. Suicide. Ghostrider. Ghostrider.
Ghostrider, motorcycle hero.
Ghostrider, motorcycle hero.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, he's blazing away!
Like the star, star, stars in the universe, yeah.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, he's looking so cute, yeah!
Riding around in a blue jumpsuit, yeah.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, he's screaming the truth!
America is killing its youth!
I see them trying, dying, choking, drowning, going down, going down...
I see you dying, dying...
Oh. You don't wanna break apart Ghostrider's heart.
He's riding through your town with his head on fire.
He's riding through your town with his head on fire!
Halo burning, eyes are crying.
Halo buring, eyes are crying.
Ghostrider, Ghostrider, Ghostrider, Ghostrider...
Keep riding!
Never stop riding!
Hey, hey, don't forget to burn!
Don't forget to burn!
Burn with fire.
With fire, fire, fire, fire!
With fire! Yeah!


Milktoast Back to the top of the page.
Helmet

Tell me if you think it's all right,
I'll give in to what you know...
I don't see the habits that become me,
I've saved up my useless thoughts...

Well, means, it works I'm on your side...
I said that?
Well, so, I lied.
Remember, I tried not to be wary...
This failed me once too much...

Unrecognized.
Well preserved. (Well preserved.)
Don't forget
What you heard...


The Badge Back to the top of the page.
Pantera

Young and dumb, truth and justice fantasy. 
Fresh out of the academy. 
Five time loser bust his head, make your day. 
Unless you're paid off to look away. 
Do you think this corruption will ever stop? 
What makes a person wanna be a cop? 
Ran a red light, storm the house and bust the guy. 
Do you like to see his children cry? 

Pick-up a hooker, take her for a little ride. 
But get sucked off on the side. 
Sworn to serve and protect, forget the killing, 
Badge wearing fascist villain. 
Pissed in the street, you bust the guy. 
Do you like to see his children cry? 

The badge means you suck, a child lays there dead. 
As you look back, what goes through your head? 

Some still call him pig. 
Some still call him pig. 

Young and tough, truth and justice fantasy. 
Fresh out of the academy. 
Five time loser, bust his head, make your day. 
Unless you're paid off then you look away. 
He burned a flag, storm the house and bust the guy. 
Do you like to see his children cry? 
Ran a red light, take her for a little ride, 
But get sucked off on the side. 

The badge means you suck, a child lays there dead. 
As you look back, what goes through your head? 

Talk to them, you can work it out. 
You better not even try it. 
You make a play for his gun. 
They'll kill you: say it was a riot. Riot!

What's behind the badge? 


Slip Slide Melting Back to the top of the page.
For Love Not Lisa

She bends right through me. 
Run wicked ramble way. 
Come eve, come May, come in, I shovel pain with liquid shades. 

If I can lift this head melting hand, 
If I can death remains the same...
If I can lift this head melting hand, 
If you cry, if you cry, death remains the same...
Gi gi go gi ga ga gi ga go,
Gi gi ga gi ga ga ga gaw!
Slip slide melting...

The flame tames honor. 
Where dancing heroes play. 
The dawn delivers me life. 
New skins in which to hide. 
My hands reach daily, 
New life in me remain. 
Let me be, let me be, let me be, let me be,
Yeah, hey!
Let me be! 

If I can lift this head melting hand, 
If I can death remains the same...
If I can lift this head melting hand, 
If I, if I, if I, if I --
Gi gi go gi ga ga gi ga go, 
Gi gi ga gi ga ga gi gay...
Slip slide melting...
Gi gi ga gi ga ga gi go,
gi gi ga gi ga ga gi gay...

Lord, I would die for you,
Take this heart away,
Find some space in the sunshine...
Lord, I would try for you, 
Take this part away, 
Fade it away...

Lord, I would die for you, 
Take this heart away, 
Find some space in the sunshine...
Lord, I would try for you, 
Take this part away, away, away...
Ooh...

Give me something to believe in me, yeah, 
Me, yeah,
Me, yeah, 
Yeah...


After The Flesh Back to the top of the page.
My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult

"I am the new way to go,
I am the way of the future."
"I am the new way to go,
I am the way of the future."

"There's a lot innocent people being crucified..."

You things things things of the flesh, do it slow...
Down avenues, fuck me, lust my eyes...
Licking lips, encouraging Mr. Careworn...
To gaze upon a screen, bask on, after the flesh!

"I am the way of the future."
"They blew his brains out at gunpoint..."
"I am the way of the future."
"Get in and fasten your seatbelt."

We'll infect your carnal mind mind mind,
We'll infect your carnal mind mind mind,
We'll infect your carnal mind mind mind,
We'll infect your carnal mind mind,
After the flesh!

I walked through forests with ugly spirits,
Kissed their feet and found them calm calm calm...
Still I don't have any money money money,
My body suffers after the flesh!

After the Flesh!

"I am the way of the future."
"They blew his brains out at gunpoint..."
"I am the way of the future."
"Get in and fasten your seatbelt."

"I am the way of the future."


Snakedriver Back to the top of the page.
The Jesus And Mary Chain

I got syphilitic hetero friends in every part of town,
I don't hate them, but I know them, I don't want them hanging around...
I won't roll my bones for every little girl who gets on down...
I got space, and space got me...
I should be selling it by the pound...
Ever since I heard the voice I thought I had no choice...

But then I kissed her...

I don't mind if I get broken,
I don't mind if I get fixed...
I don't mind if I'm not spoken,
I don't mind if I get kissed...

And I wake up, 
And I wake up, just like any other day...
And the holy grasp of God I'd thought had almost faded away...
Everything just passes by,
I thought it always would...

But then I kissed her...
Hey hey hey... 


Time Baby III Back to the top of the page.
Medicine

Sometimes it rains inside my head,
All the words run dry...
Walls are breathing, hands are reaching up,
To touch my thigh...

No they don't have to take you away...
No they don't have to take you away...
No they don't have to take you away...
No they don't have to take you away...

Sometimes it's bright inside my head,
Just like the spark in my eyes...
And hands are breathing, ones are reaching up,
Cause that's the time we rise...

No they don't have to take you away...
No they don't have to take you away...
No they don't have to take you away...
No they don't have to take you away...
(That's breaking away again...) No they don't have to take you away...


It Can't Rain All the Time Back to the top of the page.
Jane Siberry

We walked the narrow path,
Beneath the smoking skies...
Sometimes you can barely tell,
The difference between darkness and light...
Do you have faith, in what we believe?
The truest test is when we cannot,
When we cannot see...

I hear pounding feet in the, 
In the streets below,
And the, and the women crying and the, 
And the children know that there,
There's something wrong, 
And it's hard to believe that love will prevail...

Oh, it won't rain all the time...
The sky won't fall forever...
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall forever...

Oh, when I'm lonely, 
I lie awake at night, and I wish you were here...
I miss you...
Can you tell me,
Is there something more to believe in?
Or is this all there is?

And the pounding feet, in the,
In the streets below, and the,
And the window breaks and,
And a woman falls, there's,
There's something wrong, it's,
It's so hard to believe that love will prevail...

It won't rain all the time...
The sky won't fall forever...
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall, 
Your tears won't fall, 
Your tears won't fall,
Forever...

Last night I had a dream...
You came into my room, 
You took me into your arms...
Whispering and kissing me, 
And telling me to still believe...
But then the emptiness of a burning sea,
Against which we see our darkest of sadness...
Until I felt safe and warm,
I fell asleep in your arms...
When I awoke I cried again, for you were gone...
Oh, can you hear me?

It won't rain all the time...
The sky won't fall forever...
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall forever...

It won't rain all the time...
The sky won't fall forever...
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall, 
Your tears won't fall, 
Your tears won't fall,
Forever...
