"You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer"
-Helter Skelter, The Beates, 1968.

"You know it balances on your head
Just like a mattress balances
On a bottle of wine
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat"
-Leopard-Skin-Pill-Box hat, Bob Dylan, 1966.

"Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you
And then he kneels
He crosses himself
And then he clicks his high heels
And without further notice
He asks you how it feels
And he says, here is your throat back
Thanks for the loan

Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, mister jones?"
-Ballad Of A Thin Man, Bob Dylan, 1965.


"Now sir you tell me the world's changed
Once I made you rich enough
Rich enough to forget my name

In Youngstown
In Youngstown
My sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down
Here darlin' in Youngstown"
-Youngstown, Bruce Springsteen, 1995.

"Now I know your mama, she don't like me
'Cause I play in a rock and roll band
And I know your daddy, he don't dig me but he never did understand
Your papa lowered the boom, he locked you in your room
I'm comin' to lend a hand
I'm comin' to liberate you, confiscate you, I wanna be your man
Someday we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny
But now you're sad, you're mama's mad, and your
Papa says he knows that I don't have any money
Oh your papa says he knows that I don't have any money
Tell him this is his last chance to get his daughter in a fine romance
Because a record company Rosie, just gave me a big advance

And my tires were slashed and I almost crashed, but the Lord had mercy
And my machine, she's a dud, out stuck in the mud
Somewhere in the swamps of Jersey

Well, hold on tight, stay up all night, cause Rosie, I'm comin' on strong
By the time we meet the morning light, I will hold you in my arms
I know a pretty little place in Southern California, down San Diego way
There's a little cafe where they play guitars all night and all day
You can hear them in the back room strummin'
So hold tight baby, cause don't you know daddy's comin'
Everybody sing

Rosalita, jump a little higher..."
-Rosalita (Come Out Tonight), Bruce Springsteen, 1973.

"Its not the side-effects of the cocaine
Im thinking that it must be love
Its too late - to be grateful
Its too late - to be late again
Its too late - to be hateful
The european cannon is here"
-Station To Station, David Bowie, 1976.

"I can see very well
There's a boat on the reef with a broken back
And I can see it very well
There's a joke and I know it very well
It's one of those that I told you long ago
Take my word I'm a madman don't you know

Once a fool had a good part in the play
If it's so would I still be here today
It's quite peculiar in a funny sort of way
They think it's very funny everything I say
Get a load of him, he's so insane
You better get your coat dear
It looks like rain"
-Elton John, Madman Across The Water, 1971.


"Now you're clean
And so discreet
I won't say a word
But most of all this song is true
Case you haven't heard
So c'mon and stop your cryin'
'Cause we both know money burns
Honey don't stop tryin;
An you'll get what you deserve"
-Guns N' Roses, My Michelle, 1987.

"I'm going to rent myself a house
In the shade of the freeway
I'm going to pack my lunch in the morning
And go to work each day
And when the evening rolls around
I'll go on home and lay my body down
And when the morning light comes streaming in
I'll get up and do it again"
-Jackson Browne, The Pretender, 1976.

How many special people change
How many lives are living strange
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannon ball
Where were you while we were getting high?

Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova in the sky"
-Oasis, Champagne Supernova, 1995.

"Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was given a pat on the back
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home
Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone."
-Pink Floyd, Dogs, 1977.

"Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream?
It's alright we told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star,
He played a mean guitar,
He always ate in the Steak Bar.
He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the Machine"
-Pink Floyd, Welcome To The Machine, 1975.

"Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar.
You're gonna go far, fly high,
You're never gonna die,
You're gonna make it if you try;
They're gonna love you.
Well I've always had a deep respect,
And I mean that most sincerely.
The band is just fantastic,
that is really what I think.
Oh by the way, which one's Pink?
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy,
We call it Riding the Gravy Train.

We're just knocked out.
We heard about the sell out.
You gotta get an album out.
You owe it to the people.
We're so happy we can hardly count.
Everybody else is just green,
Have you seen the chart?
It's a helluva start,
It could be made into a monster
If we all pull together as a team.
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy,
We call it Riding the Gravy Train." (That's the whole song lol)
-Pink Floyd, Have A Cigar, 1975.

"Ambition makes you look pretty ugly
Kicking and squealing gucci little piggy"
-Radiohead, Paranoid Android, 1997.

"Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste"
-The Rolling Stones, Sympathy For The Devil, 1968.

"Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in the market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright
Hear him whip the women just around midnight

Brown sugar how come you taste so good
Brown sugar just like a young girl should- ah hum oh..
Woo!"
-The Rolling Stones, Brown Sugar, 1971.

"Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmares into dreams
Oh, can't you see I'm fading fast?
And that this shot will be my last

Sweet Cousin Cocaine, lay your cool cool hand on my head
Ah, come on, Sister Morphine, you better make up my bed
'Cause you know and I know in the morning I'll be dead
Yeah, and you can sit around, yeah and you can watch all the
Clean white sheets stained red."
-The Rolling Stones, Sister Morphine, 1971.

The highways jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight but there's no place left to hide
-Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen

Turns out not where but who you're with
That really matters
And hurts not much when you're around
-The Best Of What's Around, Dave Matthews Band

Things are okay with me these days
I got a good job, I got a good office
I got a new wife, got a new life
And the family is fine
Oh we lost touch long ago
You lost weight - I did not know
you could ever look so nice after so much time.
-Scenes From An Italian Restaurant, Billy Joel

Those are just the ones off the top of my head...

"When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
With a head full of snow
In the window there's a face you know
Don't the night pass slow
Don't the nights pass slow

The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Just another mad mad day on the road
I am just living to be lying by your side
But I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road
-The Rolling Stones, Moonlight Mile, 1971.

"Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone

Nowhere is the dreamer
Or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions ---
In the high school
halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions ---
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms
to soothe
The restless dreams of youth"
-Rush, Subdivisions, 1982.

"Take a jumbo across the water
Like to see america
See the girls in california
Im hoping its going to come true
But theres not a lot I can do

Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, mummy dear
They got to have em in texas
Cos everyones a millionaire"
-Supertramp, Breakfast In America, 1979.

"The sky it was gold, it was rose
I was taking tips of it to my nose
And I wish I could get back there
Some place back there
Smiling in the pictures you would take
Doing crystal meth
Will lift you up until you break
It won't stop
I won't come down,
I keep stock
With a tick-tock rhythm
A bump for the drop
And then I bumped up
I took the hit that I was given
Then I bumped again
And then I bumped again
I said
How do I get back there to
The place where I fell asleep inside you?
How do I get myself back to
The place where you said

I want something else
To get me through this
Semi-charmed kind of life (Baby, baby)
I want something else
I'm not listening when you say
Good-bye"
-Third Eye Blind, Semi Charmed Life, 1997.

"You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way"
-Tracy Chapman, Fast Car, 1988.

"Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss"
-The Who, Won't Get Fooled Again, 1971.

Out of the night that comforts me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole.
I thank what ever gods may be,
For my unconquerable soul.

Invictus, Henly.

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds... Oh Lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor, yeah

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their Judgment day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of Judgment, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh Lord yeah!

Black Sabbath - War Pigs

Hello Darkness my old friend

Simon and Garfunkle - The Sound of Silence

There must be someway out of here, said the joker to the thief

Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower

In the time of Chimpanzes I was a monkey

Beck - Loser

Hey Ho, Lets Go

The Ramones - Blitzkreig Bop

I was born in a cross-fire Hurricane.

The Rolling Stones - Jumpin Jack Flash

Shes a very kinky girl

Rick James - Superfreak


On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha.
You can listen to the engine moaning out its one lone song
You can think about woman, or the girl you knew the night before,
But your thoughts will soon be wandering, the way they always do.
When your riding sixteen hours and theres nothing much to do
And you dont feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through.
Say, here I am, on the road again. there I am, up on the stage.
Here I go, playing star again.
There I go, turn the page.

Bob Segar - Turn the Page

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady,
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?

Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow,
I'm given you my onliness,
Give me your tomorrow.

If I Were a Carpenter — Johnny Cash and June Carter-Cash

Well Portland Oregon and sloe gin fizz
If that ain't love then tell me what is
Well I lost my heart it didn't take no time
But that ain't all. I lost my mind in Oregon

In a booth in the corner with the lights down low
I was movin' in fast she was takin' it slow
Well I looked at him and caught him lookin' at me
I knew right then we were playin' free in Oregon

Next day we knew last night got drunk
But we loved enough for the both of us
In the morning when the night had sobered up
It was much too late for the both of us in Oregon

Well sloe gin fizz works might fast
When you drink it by the pitcher and not by the glass
Hey bartender before you close
Pour us one more drink and a pitcher to go

And a pitcher to go

Portland Oregon — Loretta Lynn and Jack White


You're the reason I'm a-ridin' 'round on recapped tires.
An' you're the reason I'm hangin' our clothes outside on wires.
An' you're the reason our kids are ugly little darlins'.
Ah but looks ain't everything,
And money ain't everything.
But' I love you just the same.

You're the reason I changed to beer from soda pop.
An' you're the reason I never get to go to the beauty shop.
You're the reason our kids are ugly little darlins'.
Oh, but looks ain't everything,
And money ain't everything.
But' I love you just the same.

I guess that we won't ever have, everything we need.
'Cause when we get ahead, it's got another mouth to feed.

And that's the reason my good looks and my figure's gone.
And that's the reason I ain't got no hair to comb.
An' you're the reason our kids are ugly little darlins'.
Ah but looks ain't everything,
And money ain't everything.
But' I love you just the same.

Conway, why in the devil don't you gon and shave an' put on a clean pair of pants?

But Loretta, look at yourself.
I wish you'd take them curlers out of your hair an' go put on a little bit of make up.

And get out of the housecoat before supper.

Ha! Well let me tell you somethin', Conway.
Considerin' everything I went through today, I look like a movie star.

Yeah, Ruth Buzzi!

Thank you.

Besides that, all of our kids took after your part of our family anyway.

Oh they did, huh? What about the one's that's bald?

Well, I guess you might say they took after me.

You're the Reason Our Kids are Ugly — Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty

Cab fare to nowhere is what you are
A white line through an exit sign is what you are
All that I saw in you, now I see through

Don't shed a tear for me
My life won`t end without you
Long as the night will be
The sun will rise without you

A locked door on a candy store is what you are
A slim chance in tight pants is what you are
All that I loved you for, I wanted more

Don't shed a tear for me
My life won't end without you
Long as the night will be
The sun will rise without you

You ain't giving what I'm not taking
I'm not missing what we ain't making

All that I saw in you, now I see through

Don't shed a tear for me
My life won't end without you
Long as the night will be
The sun will rise without you

Don't Shed a Tear for Me — Paul Carrack

I want to run, I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
I want to reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel sunlight on my face
See the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I can do

The cities a flood and our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I'll show you a place high on a desert plain
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We’re still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I can do
Our love turns to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind
Oh, see our love, see our love turn to rust
And we’re beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind
When I got there, I go there with you
It’s all I can do

Where The Streets Have No Name — U2

I have climbed the highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire
I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well, yes, I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
And my shame
All my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For — U2

Desert sky
Dream beneath a desert sky
The rivers run but soon run dry
We need new dreams tonight

Desert rose
Dreamed I saw a desert rose
Dress torn in ribbons and in bows
Like a siren she calls to me

Sleep comes like a drug
In God's Country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God's Country

Set me alight
We'll punch a hole right through the night
Everyday the dreamers die
To see what's on the other side

She is liberty
And she comes to rescue me
Hope, faith, her vanity
The greatest gift is gold

Sleep comes like a drug
In God's Country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God's Country

Naked flame
She stands with a naked flame
I stand with the sons of Cain
Burned by the fire of love
Burned by the fire of love

In God's Country — U2

Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen
That is actually my ringtone. Maui, you stole by Bob Seger song!



Look at me
Look at me
Driving and I won't stop
And it feels so good to be
Alive and on top
My reach is global
My tower secure
My cause is noble
My power is pure
I can hand out a million vaccinations
Or let'em all die in exasperation
Have'em all healed of their lacerations
Have'em all killed by assassination
I can make anybody go to prison
Just because I don't like'em and
I can do anything with no permission
I have it all under my command
I can guide a missile by satellite
By satellite
By satellite
and I can hit a target through a telescope
Through a telescope
Through a telescope
and I can end the planet in a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust

The Flobots - No Handlebars


Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmmm that it's all for the best?
of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say?
Mmmm that it's just what we need
you decided this
whatcha say?
Mmmm what did she say?

Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap


Everybody here is out of sight
They don't bark, and they don't bite
They keep things loose, they keep things light
Everybody was dancin' in the moonlight

Dancin' in the moonlight
Everybody's feelin' warm and right
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancin' in the moonlight

King Harvest - Dancin' in the Moonlight


There she sits buddy just a-gleaming in the sun,
There to greet a working man when his day is done
Im gonna pack my pa and Im gonna pack my aunt,
Im gonna take them down to the cadillac ranch.

Eldorado fins, whitewalls and skirts;
Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth.
When I die, buddy, throw my body in the back,
Take me to the junkyard in my cadillac.

Cadillac, cadillac,
Long and dark, shiny and black
Open up your engines let `em roar
Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

I am a lineman for the county.
And I drive the mainroad.
Lookin' in the sun for another overload.

I hear you singing in the wire.
I can hear you through the whine.
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line.

I know I need a small vacation.
But it don't look like rain.
And if it snows that stretch down south,
won't ever stand the strain.

And I need you more than want you.
And I want you for all time.
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line.

Wichita Lineman — Glen Campbell

God is in the roses
The petals and the thorns
Storms out on the oceans
The souls who will be born
And every drop of rain that falls
Falls for those who mourn
God is in the roses and the thorns

The sun is on the cemetery
Leaves are on the stones
There never was a place on earth
That felt so much like home
We're falling like the velvet petals
We're bleeding and we're torn
But God is in the roses and the thorns

I love you like a brother
A father and a son
It may not last forever and ever
But it never will be done
My whole world fits inside the moment
I saw you be reborn
God is in the roses
And that day was filled with roses
God is in the roses and the thorns

God Is In the Roses — Rosanne Cash

We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out.
I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around,
Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson,
Look out Jackson town.

Well, go on down to Jackson; go ahead and wreck your health.
Go play your hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself,
Yeah, go to Jackson; go comb your hair!
Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson.
See if I care.

When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow. (Hah!)
All them women gonna make me, teach 'em what they don't know how,
I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat.
'Cause I'm goin' to Jackson.
"Goodbye," that's all she wrote.

But they'll laugh at you in Jackson, and I'll be dancin' on a Pony Keg.
They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound,
With your tail tucked between your legs,
Yeah, go to Jackson, you big-talkin' man.
And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my Jaypan Fan,

Well now, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper Sprout,
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went.
I'm goin' to Jackson, and that's a fact.
Yeah, we're goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back.

Jackson — Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash

Well I'm gonna start out walkin'
Just you wait and see
Uh Uh guitar picker
You ain't leavin' without me

Oh you big-mouthed woman
You long-legged guitar pickin' man
Well, we can work this out
Uh huh, yes ma'am, I think we can

Well I stole the Hope diamond
hopin' I could shut your mouth
But how am I gonna wear it
if I got to hide it out

Oh you big-mouthed woman
You long-legged guitar pickin' man
But we can work this out
Uh huh, yes ma'am, I think we can

Well I bought you a first class ticket
For a luxury liner cruise
I got out in that ocean
Looked around and there was you

Oh you big-mouthed woman
You long-legged guitar pickin' man
But we can work this out
Uh huh, yes ma'am, I think we can

I bought you a big long limousine
But I don't want no car
I need my lovin' everything
But you're still what you are

You're just a big mouthed woman
You're a long-legged guitar pickin' man
But we can work this out
Uh huh, yes ma'am, I think we can

Long-Legged Guitar Pickin' Man — Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash

He was born in the summer of his 27th year
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
You might say he found a key for every door

When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hangin' by a song
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care
It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long

But the Colorado rocky mountain high
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye
Rocky mountain high

He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
He saw everything as far as you can see
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply
Rocky mountain high

Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky mountain high

It's Colorado rocky mountain high
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
Friends around the campfire and everybody's high
Rocky mountain high

Rocky Mountain High — John Denver


He promised her a new and better life, out in Arizona
Underneath the blue never ending sky,
Swore that he was gonna get things in order, he'd send for her
When he left her behind, it never crossed her mind

There is no Arizona
No Pained Desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

She got a postcard with no return address, postmarked Tombstone
It said "I don't know where I'm goin' next but when I do I'll let you know"
May, June, July, she wonders why
She's still waiting,she'll keep waiting 'cause

There is no Arizona
No Pained Desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

Each day the sun sets into the west
Her heart sinks lower in her chest and
Friends keep asking when she's going
Finally she tells them don't you know

There is no Arizona
No Pained Desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

He promised her a new and better life, out in Arizona

There is No Arizona — Jamie O'Neal

"We're from America where they let you cum on our faces."

But dont be fooled by the radio
The tv or the magazines

They show you photographs
of how your life should be
But theyre just someone elses fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that its a grand illusion
And deep inside were all the same.
Were all the same...

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because your neighbors got it made
Just remember that its a grand illusion
And deep inside were all the same.
Were all the same...

America spells competition, join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
Someday soon well stop to ponder what on earths this spell were under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

Rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log,
Than live in Atlanta treated like a dirty dog.

Nickelback Rockstar:

Rockstar lyrics

I'm through with standin' in lines to clubs I'll never get in
It's like the bottom of the ninth and I'm never gonna win
This life hasn't turned out
Quite the way I want it to be
(Tell me what you want)

I want a brand new house on an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub
Big enough for ten plus me
(Yeah, so what you need?)

I need a a credit card that's got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet
(Been there, done that)

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher
And James Dean is fine for me
(So how you gonna do it?)

I'm gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair
And change my name

'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses, drivin' fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat

And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair

And well, hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up *******s
Sign a couple autographs
So I can eat my meals for free
(I'll have the quesadilla, ha, ha)

I'm gonna dress my ass with the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
Gonna date a centerfold that loves
To blow my money for me
(So how you gonna do it?)

I'm gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair
And change my name

'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses, drivin' fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat

And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair

And we'll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary of today's who's who
They'll get you anything with that evil smile
Everybody's got a drug dealer on speed dial

Well, hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar

I'm gonna sing those songs that offend the censors
Gonna pop my pills from a Pez dispenser
Get washed-up singers writin' all my songs
Lipsynk 'em every night so I don't get 'em wrong

Well, we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses, drivin' fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat

And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair

And we'll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary of today's who's who
They'll get you anything with that evil smile
Everybody's got a drug dealer on speed dial

Well, hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar
Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hold
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My ssweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Hurt — Trent Reznor/Nine Inch Nails, cover by Johnny Cash


I have both versions; the video by Johnny Cash is amazing; it's like his epitaph:

Well, I’ve got to run to keep from hiding,
And I’m bound to keep on riding.
And I’ve got one more silver dollar,
But I’m not gonna let them catch me, no,
Not gonna let ’em catch the midnight rider.

And I don’t own the clothes I’m wearing,
And the road goes on forever,
And I’ve got one more silver dollar,
But I’m not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let ’em catch the midnight rider.

And I’ve gone by the point of caring,
Some old bed I’ll soon be sharing,
And I’ve got one more silver dollar,

But I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider.
But I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider.
But I’m not gonna let ’em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider.

Midnight Rider by the Allman Brothers Band. Lyrics by Greg Allman.

Hello me ... Meet the real me
And my misfits way of life
A dark black past is my
Most valued possessions
Hindsight is always 20-20
But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy
Speak of mutually assured destruction?
Nice story ... Tell it to Reader's Digest!!!

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety's attacking me, and
My air is getting thin
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet
I'm chomping at the bit and my
Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets

Hello me ... It's me again
You can subdue, but never tame me
It gives me a migraine headache
Thinking down to your level
Yea, just keep on thinking it's my fault
And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance
Mankind has got to know
His limitations

Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands and
I don't know where I've been
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet
I'm sharpening the axe, and my
Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets

[Solo : Dave]

Well, me ... It's nice talking to myself
A credit to dementia
Some day you too will know my pain
And smile its blacktooth grin
If the war inside my head
Won't take a day off I'll be dead
My icy fingers claw your back
Here I come again

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety's attacking me, and
And my air is getting thin
Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands and
I don't know where I've been
Once you committed me
Now you've acquitted me
Claiming validity
For your stupidity
I'm chomping at the bit
I'm sharpening the axe
Here I come again, whoa!
Sweating bullets

Megadeth- Sweating Bullets



I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time
'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole
The sands of time for me are running low

When the priest comes to read me the last rites
I take a look through the bars at the last sights
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me

Can it be there's been some sort of an error
Hard to stop the surmounting terror
Is it really the end not some crazy dream

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming
It's not easy to stop from screaming
But words escape me when I try to speak
Tears they flow but why am I crying?
After all am I not afraid of dying?
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard
Someone calls from a cell "God be with you"
If there's a God then why has he let me die?

As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul 'cause it's willing to fly away

Mark my words believe my soul lives on
Don't worry now that I have gone
I've gone beyond to see the truth

When you know that your time is close at hand
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down there is just a strange illusion

Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Hallowed be Thy name

Well, hell, Chad snagged most all of my favorite modern songs, esp. the U2 picks. "Need You Tonight" by INXS is still one of the sexiest, most seductive songs, though.

well this is my back yard - my back gate
I hate to start my parties late......
Here's the party cop - ain't that great ?
that ain't the best part, baby - just wait
there's a genuine weathervane - it moves with the breeze
portable hammock, honey - who needs trees ?

check out the shingles - all brand new
excuse me while i mingle - hi, how are you ?
hey, everybody, let me give you a toast
this one's for me - the host with the most

It's getting a trifle colder - step inside my home
that's a brass toilet tissue holder with its own telephone
that's a musical doorbell - it don't ring, I ain't kiddin'
it plays America the Beautiful - entire rhythm

boy this punch is a trip - it's ok in my book
here, take a sip - a little heavy on the fruit
ah - here comes the dip - you may kiss the cook
Let me show you Honey - it's easy - look
you take a fork and you spike 'em - say did you try these
so glad you like 'em - the secret's in the cheese
it's casual entertainment - we aim to please
at my parties.............

now don't talk to me about the polar bear
don't talk to me about the ozone layer
ain't so much of anything these days, even the air
they're runnin' out of rhinos - what do i care ?
Let's hear it for the dolphin - Let's hear it for the trees
ain't runnin' out of nothin' in MY deep freeze
it's casual entertainment - we aim to please
at my parties.

from "On Every Street", Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits.
(also decipher "Ticket to Heaven" and give the bass a workout with
"Planet of New Orleans")
