    Someone Out There
    Michael Timmins


    Someone
    out there
    kneeling.

    No one
    out there
    listening.

    But what I want to know
    before you save my soul
    is who gave this power to that ****er up there?

    Someone
    out there
    crying.

    Someone
    out here
    waiting.

    But what I want to know
    before I let you go
    is who gave this power to that ****er up there?
    close

    My dear, my dear, my dear, you do not know me but I know you very well
    Now let me tell you about the feelings I have for you
    When I try, or make some sort of attempt, I symp
    Damn I wish I wasn't such a wimp!
    'Cause then I would let you know that I love you so
    And if I was your man then I would be true
    The only lying I would do is in the bed with you
    Then I signed sincerely the one who loves you dearly, PS love me tender
    The letter came back three days later: Return to Sender
    Damn!

    Just a few


    The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
    It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.
    I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you.
    And I never dreamed that I knew somebody like you.

    There's no place like home
    There's a little white porch
    And you wanted it so
    Can you let me go down
    To the end of the road
    In the black and the white
    A technicolorful life
    Can I stand by your side?
    We can make it alright

    Color me shocked. Cowboy Junkies are one of my all-time fav. bands. Leave it to you to pick a fight with your lyrics choice, though. :D



    Tragically Hip - Nautical Disaster
    I had this dream where I relished the fray
    and the screaming filled my head all day.
    It was as though I'd been spit here, settled
    in, into the pocket of a lighthouse on some
    rocky socket, off the coast of France, dear.

    One afternoon, four thousand men died in
    the water here and five hundred more were
    thrashing madly, as parasites might in your
    blood. Now I was in a lifeboat designed for
    ten and ten only, anything that systematic
    would get you hated.
    It's not a deal nor a
    test nor a love of something fated. The
    selection was quick, the crew was picked in order and
    those left in the water got kicked off our
    pantleg and we headed for home.

    Then the dream ends when the phone rings,
    you doing alright he said it's out there most
    days and nights, but only a fool would
    complain. Anyway Susan, if you like, our
    conversation is as faint as a sound in my
    memory, as those fingernails scratching on
    my hull.

    Alice in Chains - Don't Follow
    Had more meaning to me during a wayward period of my youth...

    "Forgot my woman, lost my
    Friends
    Thinks I'd done and where
    I've been
    Sleep in sweat the mirrors
    Cold
    See my face it's growin'
    Old
    Scared to death no reason
    Why
    Do whatever to get me by
    Think about the things I
    Said
    Read the page it's cold
    And dead

    Take me home"


    Also

    "Like Louie Armstrong
    Played the trumpet
    I'll hit dat bong and break ya off something soon
    I got to get my props
    Cops
    Come and try to snatch my crops
    These pigs wanna blow my house down
    Head underground
    To the next town
    They get mad
    When they come to raid my pad
    And I'm out in the nine deuce Cad'
    Yes I'm the pirate pilot
    Of this ship if I get
    Wit' the ultraviolet dream
    Hide from the red light beam
    Now do you believe in the unseen
    Look, but don't make your eyes strain
    A nigga like me is goin' insane"

    Pure poetry by Cypress Hill. OK, maybe not. :D

    wob - you want pure poetry?

    "Hot & cold emotions confusing my brain
    I could not decide between pleasure & pain
    Like a tramp in the night
    I was begging you
    To treat my body like you wanted to

    Uh....
    Uh, it’s begging for you

    (this is the night)
    Touch me, touch me
    I want to feel your body
    Your heart beat next to mine
    (this is the night)
    ’cos I want your body all the time"

    Imagine

    Imagine there's no heaven,
    It's easy if you try,
    No hell below us,
    Above us only sky,
    Imagine all the people
    living for today...

    Imagine there's no countries,
    It isnt hard to do,
    Nothing to kill or die for,
    No religion too,
    Imagine all the people
    living life in peace...

    Imagine no possesions,
    I wonder if you can,
    No need for greed or hunger,
    A brotherhood of man,
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world...

    You may say Im a dreamer,
    but Im not the only one,
    I hope some day you'll join us,
    And the world will live as one.

    Right in your caboose.
    Now ****in' get it on!
    Now get it on.
    Get it on!

    ...I was almost to the door when the biggest one
    Said, "You tip your hat to this lady, son!"
    And when I did, all that hair fell out from underneath

    Now the last thing I wanted was to get into a fight
    In Jackson Mississippi on a Saturday night
    Especially when there was three of them and only one of me

    They all started laughin and I felt kinda sick
    And I knew I better think of something pretty quick
    So I just reached out and kicked old green teeth right in the knee

    Now he let out a yell that'd curl yer hair
    But before he could move I grabbed me a chair
    And said "Now watch him Folks cause he's a thoroughly dangerous man!"

    "You may not know it but this man is a spy.
    He's a undercover agent for the FBI
    And he's been sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan!"

    He was still bent over holdin on to his knee
    But everybody else was looking and listening to me
    And I laid it on thicker and heavier as I went

    I said, "Would you believe this man has gone as far
    As tearing Wallace stickers off the bumpers of cars.
    And he voted for George McGovern for President."

    "Well, he's a friend of them long haired, hippy-type, pinko fags!
    I betchya he's even got a commie flag
    tacked up on the wall inside of his garage."

    "He's a snake in the grass, I tell ya guys.
    He may look dumb but that's just a disguise,
    He's a mastermind in the ways of espionage"....

    it changes all the time, and pink floyd has the most favorite lyrics of all bands for me, however this song has song has stuck in my head a lot so I thought id share :)
    Short People got no reason
    Short People got no reason
    Short People got no reason
    To live

    They got little hands
    Little eyes
    They walk around
    Tellin' great big lies
    They got little noses
    And tiny little teeth
    They wear platform shoes
    On their nasty little feet

    Well, I don't want no Short People
    Don't want no Short People
    Don't want no Short People
    `Round here

    Short People are just the same
    As you and I
    (A Fool Such As I)
    All men are brothers
    Until the day they die
    (It's A Wonderful World)

    Short People got nobody
    Short People got nobody
    Short People got nobody
    To love

    They got little baby legs
    That stand so low
    You got to pick 'em up
    Just to say hello
    They got little cars
    That got beep, beep, beep
    They got little voices
    Goin' peep, peep, peep
    They got grubby little fingers
    And dirty little minds
    They're gonna get you every time
    Well, I don't want no Short People
    Don't want no Short People
    Don't want no Short People
    'Round here

    Randy Newman - Short People Lyrics

    edit: and for those of you offended by this song, realize that randy newman is not very tall himself and im sure meant it tongue in cheek.

    " Half a mile from the county fair
    And the rain keep pourin' down
    Me and Billy standin' there
    With a silver half a crown
    Hands are full of a fishin' rod
    And the tackle on our backs
    We just stood there gettin' wet
    With our backs against the fence

    Oh, the water
    Oh, the water
    Oh, the water
    Hope it don't rain all day

    Chorus:
    And it stoned me to my soul
    Stoned me just like Jelly Roll
    And it stoned me
    And it stoned me to my soul
    Stoned me just like goin' home
    And it stoned me

    Then the rain let up and the sun came up
    And we were gettin' dry
    Almost let a pick-up truck nearly pass us by
    So we jumped right in and the driver grinned
    And he dropped us up the road
    We looked at the swim and we jumped right in
    Not to mention fishing poles

    Oh, the water
    Oh, the water
    Oh, the water
    Let it run all over me

    Chorus

    On the way back home we sang a song
    But our throats were getting dry
    Then we saw the man from across the road
    With the sunshine in his eyes
    Well he lived all alone in his own little home
    With a great big gallon jar
    There were bottles too, one for me and you
    And he said Hey! There you are

    Oh, the water
    Oh, the water
    Oh, the water
    Get it myself from the mountain stream

    Chorus"


    Always liked that one - especially the WSP rendition

    "Eat, drink, and be merry
    For tomorrow we die"

    - DMB, Tripping Billies

    "The chain remains, the game is intact
    The name is mine, I'll take the blame for that
    The pressure's on, but guess who ain't gon' crack?
    Pardon me, I had to laugh at that
    How could you falter, when you the Rock of Gibralter
    I had to get off the boat, so I could walk on water
    This ain't no tall order, this is nothing to me
    Typical takes a day, impossible takes a week
    I do this in my sleep"

    - Jay Z part, Diamonds are Forever remix
