    from the velvet goldmine soundtrack, one of my favorite songs:

    Tumbling Down
    Steve Harley (performed by Jonathan Rhys Meyers)

    Gee, but it's hard
    When one lowers one's guard
    to the vultures

    Now, me I regard it
    A torturous hardship
    that smolders

    Like a peppermint eaten away
    Will I fight? Will I swagger, or sway?

    Tee hee, milady
    She cries like a baby
    Scold us

    See her tumbling down

    Heil to the monkey
    We're having a funky reunion
    Wasted and sunk
    he can only have Sunday communion

    He's got nicotine stains in his eyes
    He's got nothing to protect but his pride
    Oh smothered a kiss
    Or be drowned in blissful confusion

    and now for something completely different:


    down at an english fair, one evening i was there,
    when i heard the showman shouting underneath the flair:

    "i've got a lovely bunch of coconuts, there they are a standing in a row,
    big ones, small ones, some as big as your head,
    give them a twist, a flick of the wrist," that's what the showman said,
    "oh i've got a lovely bunch of coconuts, every ball you throw will make me rich,
    there stands me wife, the idle of me life, singing roll a bowler ball, a penny a pitch."

    singing roll a bowler ball a penny a pitch,
    singing roll a bowler ball a penny a pitch,
    roll a bowler ball, roll a bowler ball,
    singing roll a bowler ball a penny a pitch,"

    i've got a lovely bunch of coconuts, (they're lovely!)
    there they are a standing in a row (one, two, three, four)
    big ones, small ones, some as big as your head (and bigger!)
    give them a twist, a flick of the wrst, that's what the showman said,

    no, but i've got a lovely bunch of coconuts, (la da da da da)
    every ball you throw will make me rich, (la da da da da)
    there stands me wife, the idle of me life,
    singing roll a bowler ball, a penny a pitch (all together now!)

    singing roll a bowler ball a penny a pitch, (harmony!)
    singing roll a bowler ball a penny a pitch,
    roll a bowler ball, roll a bowler ball,
    singing roll a bowler ball a penny a pitch.

    oh my god...is this the nostalgic thread or what?

    Twisted Sister, Gary Gnu of the Gnu News, Sid and Marty Krofft's Land of the Lost, and Monty Python!

    perhaps i can throw something into the mix as well...

    Perfect Strangers <3 balki

    sometimes the world looks perfect
    nothing to rearrange
    sometimes you just get a feeling
    like you need some kind of change

    no matter what the odds are this time
    nothing's gonna stand in my way
    a flame in my heart, and a long lost friend
    gives every dark street a light at the end

    standing tall
    on the wings of my dream
    to rise and fall
    on the wings of my dream

    the rain and thunder, the wind and haze
    i'm bound for better days
    it's my life, and my dream
    nothing's gonna stop me now

    YEAH how's THAT for nostalgia??

    Here's one for Talon Squad Leader.

    "Heaven Is A Halfpipe" - by OPM

    If I die before I wake
    at least in heaven I can skate
    cause right now on earth I cant do jack
    without the man up on my back

    now heaven would be a DJ
    spinning dub all night long
    and heaven would just kickin back
    with jesus packing my ****
    and if you dont believe in Jesus and Muhammad and Budha too
    and while the world is warring
    we just sit back and laugh at you singing...

    If I die before I wake
    at least in heaven I can skate
    cause right now on earth I cant do jack
    without the man up on my back

    now when most people think of heaven
    they see those pearly gates
    but I looked a little closer
    and theres a sign says "do not skate"
    so if you wanna come to my heaven
    well we're all gonna have a ball
    and everyone u know is welcome
    cause we got no gates or walls singing...

    If I die before i wake
    at least in heaven i can skate
    cause right now on earth I cant do ****
    without the man ****ing with it

    then I got to the gate
    he pulled a list that I'd been calling fate
    I'm sorry friend you cant come in
    you gotta a list here that doesn't end
    you're mad cause I smoke ****
    you teaching any classes in how to cope
    I'll find a place to rest my head
    I rather be alone now that I'm dead
    like Christian Hossoi way back in '87
    we'll be busting ****ing air's until we get to heaven
    think I really care that I miss my biology
    got my education in stale fishology
    with all your rules you gots to chill
    I'm gonna twist out Mike McGill
    I'm gonna twist out cause I got the skillz
    I'm gonna twist out cause I got the skillz..got the skillz got the skillz

    heaven is a halfpipe..
    heaven is a halfpipe..

    If I die before I wake
    at least in heaven I can skate
    cause right now on earth I can't do jack
    without the man up on my back

    If I die before I wake
    at least in heaven I can skate
    cause right now on earth I can't do ****
    without the man ****ing with it
    [repeat to fade]

    To get this back to songs....

    In honor of memorial day here is a song Iced Earth released on their latest album about a revolutionary soldier killed in battle and watching over his son as he continues to serve their new nation.

    Ghost of Freedom
    Schaffer / Barlow

    Every time you think about it
    It tears you up inside
    You curse the day your mother
    told you, your father died
    Now you're always searching
    Searching for the reason why I've gone
    But I will always be here
    By your side, through the darkest night

    Here I'll stand on the firing line
    Here I'll walk through the field where I died
    I will fight and let the voice ring true
    I am the ghost
    Standing next to you

    Every night you go to sleep
    You pray the Lord my soul to keep
    You don't know I've not gone away
    You see I watch over fighting men
    So they can have peace again
    And maybe someday you will all be free

    Here I'll stand on the firing line
    Here I'll walk through the field where I died
    I will fight and let the voice ring true
    I am the ghost
    Standing next to you

    You speak to me
    And I feel your pride
    Assuring me I'll never die
    I write Mother...
    "He's here with me..."
    He's in our minds
    He's in our souls
    Of sacrifice his story's told
    He holds the flame of freedom for all to see

    Here we stand on the firing line
    Here I'll walk in the field where I fight
    I will fight of die for liberty
    With the ghost standing next to me

    Don't tread on me...live free or die!!!
    To our fallen brothers
    You died to keep us free
    To our fallen brothers
    Who gave us liberty!!!

    OK this will show you how old I am.

    You shook Me all night Long.

    She was a fast machine
    She kept her motor clean
    She was the best damn woman I had ever seen [...that I, ever seen]
    She had the sightless eyes
    Telling me no lies [telling me my own line]
    Knockin' me out with those American thighs
    Taking more than her share
    Had me fighting for air
    She told me to come but I was already there

    'Cause the walls start shaking
    The earth was quaking
    My mind was aching
    And we were making it and you -

    CHORUS:
    Shook me all night long
    Yeah you shook me all night long

    Working double time
    On the seduction line
    She was one of a kind, she's just mine all mine
    She wanted no applause [Taking no applause]
    Just another course
    Made a meal out of me and came back for more
    Had to cool me down
    To take another round
    Now I'm back in the ring to take another swing

    'Cause the walls were shaking
    The earth was quaking
    My mind was aching
    And we were making it and you -

    CHORUS

    And knocked me out and then you
    Shook me all night long
    You had me shakin' and you
    Shook me all night long
    Yeah you shook me
    Well you took me

    You reall took me and you
    Shook me all night long
    Ooooh you
    Shook me all night long
    Yeah, yeah, you
    Shook me all night long

    Your really took me and you
    Yeah you shook me, yeah you shook me
    All night long

    In honor of all the fun I missed on the weekend (i.e. a certain locked thread):

    Friends and Lovers
    Performed by: Carl Anderson and Gloria Loring

    What would you think if I told you
    I've always wanted to hold you?
    I don't know what we're afraid of
    Nothing would change if we made love.

    Chorus:
    So I'll be your friend
    And I'll be your lover
    'Cause I know in our hearts we agree
    We don't have to be one or the other
    Oh, no, we could be both to each other.

    Yes it's a chance that we're taking
    And somebody's heart may be breaking
    Oooh, but we can't stop what's inside us
    Our love for each other will guide us.

    So I'll be your friend
    And I'll be your lover
    'Cause I know in our hearts we agree
    We don't have to be one or the other

    I've been through you
    You've been through me
    Sometimes a friend is the hardest to see
    And we always know when it's laid on the line
    Nobody else is as easy to find

    So I'll be your friend
    (I'll be)
    And I'll be your lover
    Cause I'll be your friend
    (I'll be)
    And I'll be your lover
    'Cause I know in our hearts we agree
    We don't have to be one or the other
    Oh, no, we could be both to each other.

    And the other:

    4: Criminal ( 5:41 ) by Fionna Apple

    I've been a bad bad girl
    I've been careless with a delicate man
    And its a sad sad world
    When a girl will break a boy
    Just because she can
    Don't you tell me to deny it
    I've done wrong and I want to
    Suffer for my sins
    I've come to you 'cause I need
    Guidance to be true
    And I just don't know where I can begin

    What I need is a good defense
    'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal
    And I need to redeemed
    To the one I've sinned against
    Because he's all I ever knew of love

    Heaven help me for the way I am
    Save me from these evil deeds
    Before I get them done
    I know tomorrow brings the consequence
    At hand
    But I keep livin' this day like
    The next will never come

    Oh help me but don't tell me
    To deny it
    I've got to cleanse myself
    Of all these lies till I'm good
    Enough for him
    I've got a lot to lose and I'm
    Bettin' high
    So I'm beggin' you before it ends
    Just tell me where to begin

    What I need is a good defense
    'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal
    And I need to redeemed
    To the one I've sinned against
    Because he's all I ever knew of love

    Let me know the way
    Before there's hell to pay
    Give me room to lay the law and let me go
    I've got to make a play
    To make my lover stay
    So what would an angel say
    The devil wants to know

    What I need is a good defense
    'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal
    And I need to redeemed
    To the one I've sinned against
    Because he's all I ever knew of love

    What I need is a good defense
    'Cause I'm feelin' like a criminal
    And I need to redeemed
    To the one I've sinned against

    Because he's all I ever knew of love

    Janie's Got a Gun

    Dum, dum, dum honey what have you done?
    Dum, dum, dum it's the sound of my gun
    Dum, dum, dum honey what have you done?
    Dum, dum, dum it's the sound

    Janie's got a gun
    Janie's got a gun
    Her whole world's come undone
    From lookin straight at the sun
    What did her daddy do?
    What did he put you through?
    They said when Janie was arrested
    They found him underneath a train
    But man he had it comin
    Now that Janie's got a gun
    She ain't never gonna be the same

    Janie's got a gun
    Janie's got a gun
    Her dog day's just begun
    Now everybody is on the run

    Tell me now it's untrue
    What did her daddy do?
    He jacked a little bitty baby
    The man has got to be insane
    They say the spell that he was under
    The lightning and the thunder
    Knew that someone had to stop the rain

    Run away, run away from the pain
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Run away, run away from the pain
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Run, run away

    Janie's got a gun
    Janie's got a gun
    Her dog day's just begun
    Now everybody is on the run
    What did her daddy do?
    It's Janie's last IOU
    She had to take him down easy
    And put a bullet in his brain
    She said cause nobody believes me
    The man is such a sleaze
    He ain't never gonna be the same

    Run away, run away from the pain
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Run away, run away from the pain
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Run, run away

    Janie's got a gun
    Janie's got a gun
    Janie's got a gun
    Janie's got a gun

    Janie's got a gun
    Her dog day's just begun
    Now everybody is on the run
    Because Janie's got a gun
    Janie's got a gun
    Her dog day's just begun
    Now everybody's on the run
    Janie's got a gun

    Sorry Folks, but I have to add one more:

    Janet Jackson
    Let's Wait Awhile



    There's something I want to tell you
    There's something I think that you should know
    It's not that I shouldn't really love you
    Let's take it slow
    When we get to know each other
    And we're both feeling much stronger
    Then let's try to talk it over
    Let's wait awhile longer

    Let's wait awhile
    Before it's too late
    Let's wait awhile
    Before we go too far

    Remember that special night
    When all of the stars were shining bright
    We made our first endeavor to stay together
    We made our very first promise
    To love, to share, and be real honest
    But on that very first night
    It wasn't quite right

    Let's wait awhile
    Before it's too late
    Let's wait awhile
    Our love will be great
    Let's wait awhile
    Before we go too far

    I didn't really know not to let all my feelings show
    To save some for later so our love can be greater
    You said you would always love me
    Remember I said the same thing to you
    You don't have to be frightened with my love
    Because, I'll never give up on you
    Let's wait awhile
    Ah well before it's too late
    You know you can't rush love, love

    Let's wait awhile
    (Ooh hoo hoo)
    Before it's too late
    (Let's wait awhile)
    Wait awhile
    (Our love will be great)
    Let's wait awhile
    (Wait awhile, ooh)
    Before we go too far, oh, oh, ooh

    Let's wait awhile
    (Let's just take our time)
    Before it's too late
    (Let's wait awhile)
    Your love's so good
    (Our love will be great)
    We shouldn't rush in
    (Let's wait awhile)
    Slow it down
    (Before we go too far)
    Ooh

    La da lee de da da de de de, da da da da la da
    La da lee de da da de de de, da da da da la da da
    La da lee de da da de de de

    I promise, I'll be worth the wait

    We're walking within a shadow
    where echoes of different times resound
    looking for memories to relive
    in yesterdays that can't be found.

    Through different eyes
    we keep looking for what we lack.
    Changing minds
    take us away, and you can't go back.

    And staring into ageless eyes
    that shared secrets too dark for light
    we're searching for old bonds in places
    that lie forever out of sight

    Through different eyes
    we keep looking for what we lack.
    Changing minds
    take us away, and you can't go back
    to different times
    or ageless eyes, free from sorrow.
    Changing hearts
    will hide the past from tomorrow.

    Through different eyes we try to find
    people and places we've left behind.

    ok one more then I'll stop


    Its so cold in the shadow of distant lights
    and the chilling wind slows our pace and tests our will
    still a voice whispers it will be over soon
    and there we find the courage to climb the hill

    sometimes I lose sight of where i'm going
    fanned by a flame I can't remember
    but distant lights still burn bright
    and the road goes on forever

    year after year with renewed ambition
    we scale the walls to find there's nothing there
    still idle hands clutch the empty page
    with the passion of a desperate prayer

    sometimes I lose sight of where i'm going
    fanned by a flame I can't remember
    but distant lights still burn bright
    and the road goes on forever

    and here we are again
    the doors close behind us
    and the road goes on and on and on and on...

    sometimes I lose sight of where i'm going
    fanned by a flame I can't remember
    but distant lights still burn bright
    and the road goes on forever
    forever...

    Just wanted to post this:

    Young Force-Believer*
    New lyrics by Dane-Mychal Marvin

    Oh, I could ride on the back
    Of an animated shaak,
    I'll fall onto the ground if it flings,
    It flings me on my head,
    Padme worries that I'm dead,
    She rushes over to me and I sing:

    Love this picnic scene,
    Oh, what can it mean
    To a young Force-believer and an ex-Naboo queen?

    You once thought of me
    As a boy on Tattooine,
    Now you know how sexy I can be,
    But our good times start to end,
    When I am forced to pretend
    That dictatorship isn't what we need.

    Love that picnic scene,
    Oh, what can it mean
    To a young Force-believer and an ex-Naboo queen?

    Love that picnic scene,
    Oh, what can it mean
    To a young Force-believer and an ex-Naboo queen?

    Love that picnic scene,
    Oh, what can it mean
    To a young Force-believer and an ex-Naboo queen?

    *Sung to the tune of "Daydream Believer", words & music by John Stewart,
    originally performed by the Monkees

    Here's one of my favorite Loreena McKennitt songs (its a long one :D):

    The Highwayman


    The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees
    The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon the cloudy seas
    The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor
    And the highwayman came riding
    Riding, riding,
    The hughwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

    He'd a French cocked hat on his forehead, a bunch of lace at his chin,
    A coat of claret velvet, and breeches of brown doe-skin;
    They fitted with never a wrinkle; his boots were up to the thigh!
    And he rode with a jewelled twinkle,
    His pistol butts a-twinkle,
    His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jewelled sky.

    Over the cobbles he clattered and clashed in the dark inn-yard,
    And he tapped with his whip on the shutters, but all were locked and barred;
    He whistled a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there
    But the landlord's black-eyed daughter,
    Bess, the landlord's daughter,
    Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair.

    "One kiss, my bonny sweatheart, I'm after a prize tonight,
    But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light;
    Yet if they press me sharply, and harry me through the day,
    Then look for me by the moonlight,
    Watch for me by the moonlight,
    I'll come to thee by the moonlight, though hell should bar the way."

    He rose upright in the stirrups; he scare could reach her hand
    But she loosened her hair i' the casement! His face burned like a brand
    As the black cascade of perfume came tumbling over his breast; And he kissed its waves in the moonlight, (oh sweet black waves in the moonlight!)
    Then he tugged at his rein in the moonlight, and he galloped away to the west.

    He did not come at the dawning; he did not come at noon,
    And out o' the tawny sunset, before the rise o' the moon,
    When the road was a gypsy's ribbon, looping the purple moor,
    A red-coat troop came marching,
    Marching, marching
    King George's men came marching, up to the old inn-door.

    They said no word to the landlord, they drank his ale instead,
    But they gagged his daughter and bound her to the foot of her narrow bed;
    Two of them knelt at the casement, with muskets at their side!
    There was death at every window,
    And hell at one dark window;
    For Bess could see, through the casement, the road that he would ride.

    They had tied her up to attention, with many a snickering jest;
    They had bound a musket beside her, with the barrel beneath her breast!
    "Now keep good watch!" and they kissed her.
    She heard the dead man say-
    Look for me by the moonlight,
    Watch for me by the moonlight,
    I'll come to thee by the moonlight, though hell should bar the way!"

    She twisted her hands behind her, but all the knots held good!
    She writhed her hands until her finger were wet with sweat or blood!
    They streched and strained in the darkness and the hours crawled by like years!
    Till, now, on the stroke of midnight,
    Cold, on the stroke of midnight,
    The tip of her finger touched it!
    The trigger at least was hers!

    Tlot-tlot! Had they heard it? The horse-hoofs were ringing clear
    Tlot-tlot, in the distance! Were they deaf that they did not hear?
    Down the ribbon of moonlight, over the brow of the hill,
    The highwayman came riding,
    Riding, riding!
    The red-coats looked to their priming!
    She stood up straight and still!

    Tlot, in the frosty silence! Tlot, in the echoing night!
    Nearer he came and nearer! Her face was like a light!
    Her eyes grew wide for a moment! She drew one last deep breath,
    Then her finger moved in the moonlight,
    Her musket shattered the moonlight,
    Shattered her breast in the moonlight and warned him with her death.

    He turned; he spurred to the West; he did not know she stood
    Bowed, with her head o'er the musket, drenched with her own red blood!
    Not till the dawn he heard it; his face grew gray to hear
    How Bess, the landlord's daughter,
    The landlord's black-eyed daughter,
    Had watched for her love in the moonlight, and died in the darkness there.

    Back, he spurred like a madman, shri

    Thought I'd dig through for an old thread this time...we've got to have some great new songs to share with everybody.

    Here's one I'm dedicating to Mick, Sistine, and all the hands in the -Master's- tavern for when the boss has a bad day...


    HAND OF DOOM by ManOWar

    Hands Of Doom Are Reaching Out To Crush All Infidels Who Stray
    Time To Know The Pain But No Time To Run Within
    And These Hands You See Before You Will End The Light Of Day
    Your Ashes Will Be Cast Into The Wind
    Your Bloods Upon The Soil Your Body Fed To Wolves
    Not One Of You Will Be Left Alive
    Hear The Sound, Pounding, And The Army Of The Night
    By The Hammer Of Thor You Now Shall Die

    Tonight We Strike There Is Thunder In The Sky
    Together We'll Fight Some Of Us Will Die
    We'll Always Remember That We Made A Stand
    And Many Will Die By My Hand!

    We Are High Atop A Mountain With Hammers In The Wind
    Lusting For Blood And Death Again
    In A Flash Of Lightning Strike
    Now The House Of Death Invites You, Body And Soul To Come Within

    I See The Fear You Have Inside You Can Run But Never Hide
    I Will Hunt You Down And Tare You Limb From Limb
    Nothing Shall Remain Not Your Memory, Your Name
    It Will Be As Though You Never Ever Lived

    Tonight We Strike There Is Thunder In The Sky
    Together We'll Fight Some Of Us Will Die
    We'll Always Remember That We Made A Stand
    Many Will Die By My Hand!
    They Will Die....
    High Atop A Mountain With Hammers In The Wind
    Lusting For Blood And Death Again
    In A Flash Of Lightning Strike
    Now The House Of Death Invites You, Body And Soul To Come Within

    I See The Fear You Have Inside You Can Run But Never Hide
    I Will Hunt You Down And Tear You Limb From Limb
    Nothing Shall Remain Not Your Memory, Your Name
    It Will Be As Though You Never Ever Lived
    Tonight We Strike There Is Thunder In The Sky
    Together We'll Fight And Some Of Us Will Die
    But We'll Always Remember That We Made A Stand
    And Many Will Die By My Hand
    They Will Die, By My Hand......They Will Die...

    How'z 'bout an oldie but goodie?

    The Christmas Waltz
    (as performed by The Carpenter's, although I don't remember who originally wrote or performed it)

    Frosted window panes, candles gleaming inside,
    Painted candy canes on the tree...
    Santa's on his way, he's filled his sleigh
    With things... things for you and for me.

    It's that time of year when the world falls in love,
    Every song you hear seems to say,
    Merry Christmas, may your New Years' dreams come true!
    And this song of mine in three-quarter time
    Wishes you and yours the same thing too.

    and... I think there's more, but I don't know/remember. [face_blush]

    I'm a big U2 fan. Here are some of my favorite more current songs of theirs:

    If God Would Send His Angels

    Nobody else here baby
    No one here to blame
    No one to point the finger
    It's just you and me and the rain

    Nobody made you do it
    No one put words in your mouth
    Nobody here taking orders
    When love took a train heading south

    It's the blind leading the blonde
    It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs

    Hey if God will send his angels
    And if God will send a sign
    And if God will send his angels
    Would everything be alright

    God has got his phone off the hook, babe
    Would he even pick up if he could
    It's been a while since we saw that child
    Hanging 'round this neighborhood
    You see his mother dealing in a doorway
    See Father Christmas with a begging bowl
    Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
    The High Street never looked so low

    It's the blind leading the blonde
    It's the cops collecting for the cons
    So where is the hope and where is the faith
    And the love...what's that you say to me
    Does love...light up your Christmas tree
    The next minute you're blowing a fuse
    And the cartoon network turns into the news

    If God will send his angels
    And if God will send a sign
    And if God will send his angels
    Where do we go
    Where do we go

    Jesus never let me down
    You know Jesus used to show me the score
    Then they put Jesus in show business
    Now it's hard to get in the door

    It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
    But I guess it was something to go on

    If God will send his angels
    I sure could use them here right now
    Well if God would send his angels
    Where do we go

    I don't want to lie
    (Where do we go)
    I don't want to have a feel for the song
    And I want to love, and I...
    (Where do we go)
    And I want to feel alone

    Staring At The Sun

    Summer stretching on the grass... summer dresses pass
    in the shade of a willow tree creeps a crawling over me
    over me and over you stuck together with God's glue
    it's going to get stickier too...
    it's been a long hot summer
    let's go undercover
    don't try too hard to think... don't think at all

    I'm not the only one starin' at the sun
    afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
    not just deaf and dumb i'm staring at the sun
    not the only one who's happy to go blind

    there's an insect in your ear if you scratch it won't disappear
    it's gonna itch and burn and sting
    do you want to see what the scratching brings
    waves that leave me out of reach
    breaking on your back like a beach...
    will we ever live in peace?
    'cause those that can't do often have to
    those that can't do often have to... preach

    to the ones staring at the sun...
    afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside
    not just deaf and dumb... staring at the sun
    I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

    intransigence is all around... military is still in town
    armour plated suits and ties... daddy just won't say goodbye
    referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will HE listen
    I'm nearly great
    but there's something I'm missing I left in the duty free
    though you never really belonged to me

    you're not the only one staring at the sun
    afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside
    I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun
    not the only one who's happy to go blind

    Walk On

    And love is not the easy thing
    The only baggage that you can bring
    Love is not the easy thing
    The only baggage you can bring
    Is all that you can't leave behind

    And if the darkness is to keep us apart
    And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
    And if your glass heart should crack
    And for a second you turn back
    Oh no, be strong

    Oh, Oh
    Walk on
    Walk on
    What you got, they can't steal it
    No, they can't even feel it
    Walk on
    Walk on
    Stay safe tonight

    You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
    A place that has to be believed to be seen
    You could have flown away a singing bird in an open cage
    Who will only fly, only

    Lawrence Ferlenghetti wrote this back in the '50s, and it is just as true today as back then...

    Christ Climbed Down
    Christ climbed down
    from His bare Tree
    this year
    and ran away to where
    there were no rootless Christmas trees
    hung with candycanes and breakable stars

    Christ climbed down
    from His bare Tree
    this year
    and ran away to where
    there were no gilded Christmas trees
    and no tinsel Christmas trees
    and no tinfoil Christmas trees
    and no pink plastic Christmas trees
    and no gold Christmas trees
    and no black Christmas trees
    and no powderblue Christmas trees
    hung with electric candles
    and encircled by tin electric trains
    and clever cornball relatives

    Christ climbed down
    from His bare Tree
    this year
    and ran away to where
    no intrepid Bible salesmen
    covered the territory
    in two-tone cadillacs
    and where no Sears Roebuck creches
    complete with plastic babe in manger
    arrived by parcel post
    the babe by special delivery
    and where no televised Wise Men
    praised the Lord Calvert Whiskey

    Christ climbed down
    from His bare Tree
    this year
    and ran away to where
    no fat handshaking stranger
    in a red flannel suit
    and a fake white beard
    went around passing himself off
    as some sort of North Pole saint
    crossing the desert to Bethlehem
    Pennsylvania
    in a Volkswagen sled
    drawn by rollicking Adirondack reindeer
    and German names
    and bearing sacks of Humble Gifts
    from Saks Fifth Avenue
    for everybody's imagined Christ child

    Christ climbed down
    from His bare Tree
    this year
    and ran away to where
    no Bing Crosby carollers
    groaned of a tight Christmas
    and where no Radio City angels
    iceskated wingless
    thru a winter wonderland
    into a jinglebell heaven
    daily at 8:30
    with Midnight Mass matinees

    Christ climbed down
    from His bare Tree
    this year
    and softly stole away into
    some anonymous Mary's womb again
    where in the darkest night
    of everybody's anonymous soul
    He awaits again
    an unimaginable
    and impossibly
    Immaculate Reconception
    the very craziest of
    Second Comings


    And because Dave is my main man, and because his new movie looks really good, here's Yoda... Y-O-D-A Yoda...

    I met him in a swamp down in daygobah
    where the water always bubbles like a giant carbonated
    SODA s o d a SODA

    I saw the little runt sitting there on alog
    and I ask him his name
    and in a rhaspy voice he said
    YODA Y O D A YODA
    YA YA YA YA YA YOOODAAAAA

    Now I'm not dumb but I don't understand
    How he can lift me in the air Just by
    Raising his hand Oh my
    Yoda

    He said a Luke stay away from the darker side
    Cause if you kill Darth Vader you'll be un employed
    oh my YYOOODDDAAA

    I was in love with princess Leia
    TILL I FOUND OUT SHE WAS MY TWIN
    So Han Solo Gets the girl and I get my
    HAND Oh my YODA

    or at least according to one of my wierd friends here at work... (yes, I really do have friends)

    Two songs by Nightwish ;)
    (y'gotta love it when bands are cool enough to post the lyrics on their websites!)

    She Is My Sin
    Take heed, dear heart
    Once apart, she can touch nor me nor you
    Dressed as one
    A wolf will betray a lamb

    Lead astray the gazers
    The razors on your seducing skin
    In the meadow of sinful thoughts
    Every flower`s perfect

    To paradise with pleasure haunted by fear

    A sin for him
    Desire within (desire within)
    A burning veil
    For the bride too dear for him
    A sin for him
    Desire within (desire within)
    Fall in love with your deep dark sin

    I am the Fallen
    You are what my sins enclose
    Lust is not as creative
    As its discovery

    To paradise with pleasure haunted by fear

    A sin for him
    Desire within (desire within)
    A burning veil
    For the bride too dear for him
    A sin for him
    Desire within (desire within)
    Fall in love with your deep dark sin

    Bless me, undress me
    Pick your prey in a wicked way
    God I must confess...
    ...I do envy the sinners

    Wishmaster
    Master!
    Apprentice!

    Disciple!
    In me the Wishmaster

    Elbereth
    Lorien

    A dreamy-eyed child staring into night
    On a journey to storyteller`s mind
    Whispers a wish speaks with the stars the words are silent in him
    Distant sigh from a lonely heart
    "I`ll be with you soon, my Shalafi"
    Grey Havens my destiny

    Sla-Mori the one known only by Him
    To august realms, the sorcery within
    If you hear the call of arcane lore,
    Your world shall rest on Earth no more
    A maiden elf calling with her cunning song
    "Meet me at the Inn of Last Home"
    Heartborne will find the way!

    **comment from the guy that wrote this song: "This is my personal tribute to fantasy, especially the closest to me; Tolkien & Dragonlance. These worlds have become a sort of inverted reality for me... Moreover, I don't believe in this thing called "destiny". We are the masters of our own wishes, beliefs and dreams. Whatever you desire enough, it can happen. Destiny is an excuse for those who don't have the strength to fulfil their wishes. Everything is possible. Even the impossible."**/>

    Lumberjack Song
    I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay.
    I sleep all night and I work all day.

    MOUNTIES:
    He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

    I cut down trees. I eat my lunch.
    I go to the lavatory.
    On Wednesdays I go shoppin'
    And have buttered scones for tea.

    MOUNTIES:
    He cuts down trees. He eats his lunch.
    He goes to the lavatory.
    On Wednesdays he goes shopping
    And has buttered scones for tea.
    He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.


    I cut down trees. I skip and jump.
    I like to press wild flowers.
    I put on women's clothing
    And hang around in bars.

    MOUNTIES:
    He cuts down trees. He skips and jumps.
    He likes to press wild flowers.
    He puts on women's clothing
    And hangs around in bars?!
    He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.


    I cut down trees. I wear high heels,
    Suspendies, and a bra.
    I wish I'd been a girlie,
    Just like my dear Papa.

    MOUNTIES:
    He cuts down trees. He wears high heels,
    Suspendies, and a bra?!

    He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

    He's a lumberjack, and he's okaaaaay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.


    and then the song my friends claim is mine
    Bitch
    I hate the world today
    You're so good to me
    I know but I can't change
    Tried to tell you
    But you look at me like maybe I'm an angel underneath
    Innocent and sweet
    Yesterday I cried
    You must have been relieved to see the softer side
    I can understand how you'd be so confused
    I don't envy you
    I'm a little bit of everything all rolled into one

    I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
    I'm a child, I'm a mother
    I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
    I do not feel ashamed
    I'm your hell, I'm your dream
    I'm nothing in between
    You know you wouldn't want it any other way

    So take me as I am
    This may mean you'll have to be a stronger man
    Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous
    And I'm going to extremes
    Tomorrow I will change and today won't mean a thing

    I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
    I'm a child, I'm a mother
    I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
    I do not feel ashamed
    I'm your hell, I'm your dream
    I'm nothing in between
    You know you wouldn't want it any other way

    Just when you think you've got me figured out
    The season is already changing
    I think it's cool you do what you do
    And don't try to save me

    I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
    I'm a child, I'm a mother
    I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
    I do not feel ashamed
    I'm your hell, I'm your dream
    I'm nothing in between
    You know you wouldn't want it any other way

    I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
    I'm a goddess on my knees
    When your hurt, when you suffer
    I'm your angel undercover
    I've been numb, I'm revived
    Can't say I'm not alive
    You know I wouldn't want it any other way
