But the thing is that my quote does mean something. If you cant understand it doesnt mean it doesnt mean anything.

 

hence why I said in my opinion.

 

dunno was kinda hoping to hear some good meaningful lyrics to songs, not just throw away pop trash.

Jewel - Angel Needs A Ride

It was a long road, the stretch from vegas to nowhere,

but its been a longer time, since he had some peace of mind.

Oh he lived off of bubblegum and cigarettes,

'n got his nourishment from allnight stores

Just thought he'd keep on driving till he handled his sorrow.

 

That's a great verse from a great song I had totally forgotten. Nice work.

 

My favourites this week come from the new Green Day record.

 

Last of the American Girls

 

"She puts her makeup on, like graffiti on the walls of the heartland"

 

American Eulogy: Part b. Modern World

 

I want to take a ride to the great divide

Beyond the "up to date" and the neo-gentrified

The high definition

For the low resident

Where the value of your mind is not held in contempt

I can hear the sound of a beating heart

That bleeds beyond a system that's falling apart

With money to burn on a minimum wage

I don't give a shit about the modern age!

 

Also loving this from Warship:

 

We've Never Been Equal

 

The line gets blurred between good and evil

A handful of "haves" getting rich off the blood of the people

Oh no, we've never been equal

Maybe you'll feel moved to speak when a tank rolls down your street

What would you say?

The whole song, every verse is genius..

 

Eminem

 

I ain't gonna eat, I ain't gonna sleep

Ain't gonna breathe, til I see, what I wanna see

And what I wanna see, is you go to sleep, in the dirt

Permanently, you just being hurt, this ain't gonna work

For me, it just wouldn't be, sufficient enough

Cuz we, are just gonna be, enemies

As long as we breathe, I don't ever see, either of us

Coming to terms, where we can agree

There ain't gonna be, no reason, speakin wit me

You speak on my seed, then me, no speakin Englais

So we gonna beef, and keep on beefin, unless

You're gonna agree, to meet with me in the flesh

And settle this face to face, and you're gonna see

A demon unleashed in me, that you've never seen

And you're gonna see, this gangsta pee on himself

I see you D-12, and thanks, but me need no help

Me do this one all by my lonely, I don't need fifteen of my homies

When I see you, I'm seeing you, me and you only

We never met, but best believe you gon' know me

When I'm this close, to see you exposed as phony

Come on, bitch, show me, pick me up, throw me

Lift me up, hold me, just like you told me

You was gonna do, that's what I thought, you're pitiful

I'm rid of you, all you, Ja, you'll get it too!

 

 

Obie Trice

 

We got you niggaz, nervous

On purpose, to hurt your focus, you'se not MC's, you'se worthless

You'se not them G's, you'se a circus, you'se no appeal, please

You'se curtains, you use words, cool heard, slurred in two thousand third

You'se purpin, you'se no threat, who's ya servin?

We lyrically oughta bury you beneath the dirt when

You f**k with a label overseein the Earth

Shady muthaf**ka, O. Trice's birth

And as I mold, I become a curse

So we can put down the verse, take it to the turf

Cock and squeeze, and he who reach the hearse is he who

Depicts fiction in his verse

And as I breathe, and you be deceased

The world believe you deceived just to speak

You'se not the streets, you'se the desk

Use not your chest nigga, use a vest

Before two's choose ya rest, you chose death

Six feet deep, nigga, that's the depth

 

 

DMX

 

Hey dog, I'ma walk like a beast, talk like the streets

I'ma stay blazin New York wit the heat

Stalk on the beat, walk wit my feet

Understand my pain, the rain ain't sweet

Peep how I'm moving, peep where I'm going

Shit don't seep, then sleep not knowin

But I'ma keep growing, getting larger than life

Easy-going with the same one that started the fight

He be knowing how dog get, when dog gone bite

Tried to show him the dog shit, it's dog for life

Grand champ, and my Blood Line is tight

Cuz it's all good, it's all right

Niggas tried to holla, but couldn't holla back

Now they gots to swallow, everything in the sac

Blood Line, and, we can go track for track

Damn dog, why'd you have to do them niggas like that?

 

 

Chorus: Eminem

 

Now go to sleep bitch!

Die, motherf**ker, die! Ugh, time's up, bitch, close ya eyes

Go to sleep, bitch! (what?)

Why are you still alive? How many times I gotta tell ya, close ya eyes?

And go to sleep bitch! (what?)

Die motherf**ker die, bye, bye, motherf**ker, bye, bye!

Go to sleep bitch! (what?)

Why are you still alive? Why, die motherf**ker, ah, ah, ah...

...Go to sleep bitch!

Here are two of my favourite lyrics:

 

Karnivool- Sewn and Silent

 

I'm touching you and tearing back,

and dreaming of your life

I wanted to be hurting

shallow eyes

 

Not to mention I'm falling, dreaming

What is wrong with silencing my thoughts?

You were there, and you weren't designed for what they're selling

 

Slow down, take time, let it heal

Hide your face from mine

 

I'd follow you entwined, my bleeding eyes are sewn blind

Fade away, if you reach this in two minds

Not to mention I'm dreaming, falling short

Sell me away that this is real

Saving me, settle down, and I will fall upon thee

In this happiness I'm so damn lonely..

 

Slow down, take time, let it heal

Hide your face from mine

Slow down, take time, let it heal

Hide your face from mine

 

It's too late to find, body and mind,

Another reason holds you there,

spit it out, cause I feel this love has gone astray

Darling you'll have to promise me that you won't turn around

Just as well I'm burning down

You take me away.

 

 

 

Alexisonfire- Rough Hands

 

 

was i left behind, someone tell me, tell me i survived.

don't look so surprised that i'm home, but just for tonight.

with rough hands and sore eyes, so don't speak, i am tired.

let's just live through this life.

 

she says i swear too much,

she says the world fades,

well i'd swear every other word if i could for her,

i'd make an attempt.

sometimes love isn't about how much he worships you.

but how much you're willing to change to suit them.

 

all my bones are dust

some people do damaged too much, too late

and my heart's sealed with rust

some people do damaged too much, too late

these hands will always be rough

some people do damaged too much, too late

i know this won't count for much

some people do damaged too much, too late

 

one day my hands were too soft,

one day she said, i'm tired.

one day her clothes were on my floor,

one day, empty bottles.

well i'm not saying she's my last.

i'm just saying that she could have been,

it doesn't matter how rough these hands get.

it doesn't matter cause i'm not her man.

 

rough hands, rough days,

rough hands, rough nights,

rough hands, rough season,

rough hands, rough fights...

 

all my bones are dust (rough hands, rough days)

some people do damaged too much, too late

and my heart's sealed with rust (rough hands, rough season)

some people do damaged too much, too late

these hands will always be rough (rough hands, rough days)

some people do damaged too much, too late

i know this won't count for much (rough hands, rough season)

some people do damaged too much, too late

A cloud appears above your head.. A beam of light comes shining down on youuu (shining down on youuuu)

The cloud is moving nearer still.. aurora borealis comes in view (aurora comes in vieeew)

 

That song is amazingly meaningful. It cured my cancer you bastards.

 

Seriously though I can't see why you would put them in the same category as Nsync, Britney, Aqua etc.

 

Have you actually listened to any of their other songs?

Viva La Vida by Coldplay

 

I used to rule the world

Seas would rise when I gave the word

Now in the morning I sleep alone

Sweep the streets I used to own

 

I used to roll the dice

Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes

Listen as the crowd would sing:

"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key

Next the walls were closed on me

And I discovered that my castles stand

Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

 

It's like a juxtaposition of one's triumph and downfall..very real

Like this song, tells a good story and is somewhat of an accurate account of my personal conquests thus far :P

 

 

Well, hello, how are you, why don’t you pull up a chair,

Won't you tell me your story cause I really do care about,

Talking, talking, talking away.

 

Here’s to me, to you, to us,

To everything hope it never falls apart,

And we're talking, talking, talking away.

 

Well you look so fine, and you seem so kind,

And I gotta say that I’m having a good time,

Dancing, dancing, dancing away.

 

Here’s, to me, to you, to us,

To everything I hope it never falls apart,

And we're dancing, dancing, dancing away.

 

 

 

Could things get any better now?

If they can, I cannot see how,

But as the time goes by, you stop and sigh,

You stop and sigh and then you wonder why.

 

I can’t stop the feeling as I’m walking away,

And I can never understand half the things you say,

And we're walking, walking, walking away.

 

So I said here’s to me, to you, to us,

To everything before it fell apart,

And we're walking, walking, walking away.

 

Things were better then,

You felt that you had to pretend,

But as the time goes by,

You stop and sigh,

You stop and sigh and then you wonder why.

Alexisonfire - Midnight Regulations

 

And now he's hanging on

to his final stitch of faith

so, here's to all the years

of deaf ear fallen prayers

rich men behind closed doors

are trying to keep him in his place

 

oh, all you common men

you need to fight for a new way

but what can be done

about the way things have become?

palace walls dismantled

brick by brick you will have your day

 

Alexisonfire - Emerald Street

 

Our calloused fingers, blood red on the brick - but we hold on

we'll never falter, though they want us to slip - we hold on

if you were going to pick something from Tracy Chapman wouldnt you pick something that has deeper meaning rather than just a narrative. Subcity or Talking about a Revolution for example. Not that Fast Car is bad, she just has more opinionated songs

Necro - I need drugs

 

When I come home from work

I'm fiendin' for an eight-ball

I got crack on my mind

I'm hearing cocaine call

Telling me to beep the dealer to deliver me stuff

Keep it a secret from my wife, cuz she thinks I don't use drugs

There I was, bleeding from my nose and damn

I couldn't breathe but I'm still thinking about the next gram

It's Friday night and I'm not trying to leave my crib doped

I'll kill myself while the dealer's eating Japanese food

I ain't got no pride, I'm buying this shit

I'm lying to myself telling the runner I'm trying to quit

It's all make believe, I pretend that I'm ??

When you give me credit, I'm dodging you every chance that I get

Even if its good, I'll sniff it up in a minute

Beep you back complain that you put too much cut in it

If you fall for that and bring me a new sack

I'll be making more crazy faces than Jim Carrey on crack

Cuz yo I'm ripped, I owe you loot

Plus I annoy you

I deserve to be murdered, but the coke is doing it for you

I got nerve, can you put them pills on my bill

Yo I'll you we're friends and we don't even chill

 

 

 

 

Pretty much the first hole verse.

 

I find it amusing.

 

He's got a filthy mind all i got to say.
