Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game

Sympathy for the Devil
, is this one of your favorites? I like the music the Stones were putting out at this time in their career but this particular song isn't one of mine.

Since I heard it I fell in love. First heard of the song through an Italian horror flick that nobody knows about or is interested in.

We are swimming the lunar sea
Drowning in insanity
Look to the shore and you will see
Your leaders were lying
Nobody's driving!

~ Amebix - Nobody's Driving

No wall, no guard, no wire, no yard; we are the perfect prisoner
~ Tau Cross - Prison

And all we have to do
Remain asleep
Don't take a look behind the veil; the wheels are turn
And in my darker dreams
I catch of glimpse of something
A greater sense of menace staring back at me

~ Tau Cross - Prison

Government is government
All government is force

~ Crass - Bloody Revolutions

We're all this together; the Big Society
And the safety net is burdened, stretched to full capacity
And care and compassion is no longer in fashion
Once again the tables have turned and the poorest are burned

~ Anthrax - The Beg Society

We are governed by fools
Who are driven by profit and war
We're just pawns in their game
Being shat one once again
Now it's getting worse now that it's ever been before

~ Burnt Cross - Governed by Fools

"When I was back there in seminary school
There was a person there
Who put forth the proposition
That you can petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
You cannot petition the lord with prayer! .........





All our lives we sweat and save
Building for a shallow grave
Must be something else we say
Somehow to defend this place
Everything must be this way
Everything must be this way, yeah

The Soft Parade has now begun
Listen to the engines hum
People out to have some fun
A cobra on my left
Leopard on my right, yeah

The deer woman in a silk dress
Girls with beads around their necks
Kiss the hunter of the green vest
Who has wrestled before
With lions in the night

Out of sight!
The lights are getting brighter
The radio is moaning
Calling to the dogs
There are still a few animals
Left out in the yard
But it's getting harder
To describe sailors
To the underfed

Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
What got us this far
To this mild equator?

We need someone or something new
Something else to get us through, yeah, c'mon "
- The Doors, The Soft Parade

When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
You're so fuckin' special
But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.
I don't care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special
But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.
She's running…

Radiohead -Creep

I send this out to all those people who have never felt worthy, most of us really, except for those egomaniacs who have made our lives miserable. You are the true creeps and you are not worthy.

Can't say if this belongs to the "rock" category, but this song by Twenty One Pilots is one of my favorites.
Crystal clear, what they're talking about... And interesting to know that it was written for the soundtrack of the movie "Suicide Squad".
(As in: yes, I know what I listen to, and I'm not fooled...:p)

"All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse
All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

Welcome to the room of people
Who have rooms of people that they loved one day
Docked away
Just because we check the guns at the door
Doesn't mean our brains will change from hand grenades
You're loving on the psychopath sitting next to you
You're loving on the murderer sitting next to you
You'll think, "How'd I get here, sitting next to you?"
But after all I've said, please don't forget

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

We don't deal with outsiders very well
They say newcomers have a certain smell
You have trust issues, not to mention
They say they can smell your intentions
You're loving on the freakshow sitting next to you
You'll have some weird people sitting next to you
You'll think "How did I get here, sitting next to you?"
But after all I've said, please don't forget
(Watch it, watch it)

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know
(Watch it)
Please all my friends are heathens, take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know

Why'd you come? You knew you should have stayed
(It's blasphemy)
I tried to warn you just to stay away
(Away)
And now they're outside ready to bust
(To bust)
It looks like you might be one of us"

:)

Anything by Leonard Cohen. I don't always understand his meaning behind his lyrics but they have a life of their own and, when combined with his beautiful music and his distinctive voice, they become a work of art. I just want to sit and listen to his lyrics over and over and let them transport me to another place far, far away from our troubled world.

Favorite--too strong; Rock--subjective
But anyway, here goes

I was supposed to have been a Jesuit priest or a Naval Academy grad
That was the way that my parents perceived me
Those were the plans that they had
Though I couldn't fit the part too dumb or too smart
Ain't it funny how we all turned out
I guess we are the people our parents warned us

RIP, Tom

There's a southern accent, where I come from
The young 'uns call it country, the yankees call it dumb
I got my own way of talking, but everything gets done
With a southern accent, where I come from

Now that drunk tank in Atlanta, is just a motel room to me
Think I might go work Orlando, if them orange groves don't freeze
Got my own way of working, but everything is run
With a southern accent, where I come from

For just a minute there I was dreaming
For just a minute it was all so real
For just a minute she was standing there, with me

There's a dream I keep having, where my momma comes to me
And kneels down over by the window, and says a prayer for me
Got my own way of praying, but everyone's begun
With a southern accent, where I come from
______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Let me run with you tonight
I'll take you on a moonlight ride
There's someone I used to see
But she don't give a damn for me

But let me get to the point, let's roll another joint
And turn the radio loud, I'm too alone to be proud
You don't know how it feels
You don't know how it feels to be me

People come, people go
Some grow young, some grow cold
I woke up in between
A memory and a dream

So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint
Let's head on down the road
There's somewhere I gotta go
And you don't know how it feels
You don't know how it feels to be me

My old man was born to rock
He's still tryin' to beat the clock
Think of me what you will
I got a little space to fill

So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint
Let's head on down the road
There's somewhere I gotta go
And you don't know how it feels
No, you don't know how it feels to be me

The siren sings a lonely song
Of all the wants and hungers
The lust of love, a brute desire
The ledge of life goes under

Divide the dream into the flesh
Kaleidoscope and candle eyes
Empty winds scrape on the soul
But never stop to realize

Animal whisperings
Intoxicate the night
Hypnotize the desperate
Slow motion light

Wash away into the rain
Blood, milk and sky
Hollow moons illuminate
And beauty never dies

Running wild, running blind
I breathe the body deep
1,000 years beside myself
I do not sleep

Seduce the world it never screams
Dead water lies
Ride the only one who knows
Beauty never dies

-Blood, Milk, and Sky by White Zombie

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven. I really believe that this song is talking about the dark side of the Hollywood industry. ;)

"Thought of you as my mountain top,
Thought of you as my peak.
Thought of you as everything,
I've had but couldn't keep.
I've had but couldn't keep."

When all your demons die
Even if just one survives
I will still be here to hold you
No matter how cold you are
No matter how cold you are

I see the terror in your teardrop
Take your belief
Make it snow, let go
And wait together, until we thaw


I don't wanna be another bullet hole
In the exit sign of your road
I don't wanna be another bullet hole
In the exit sign of your road


Just smile like a rifle, hot metal in the setting sun
Just smile like a rifle, hot metal in the setting sun
