my dark side loves these lyrics :twisted:

Career Of Evil


I plot your rubric scarab
I steal your satellite
I want your wife to be my
Baby tonight, baby tonight

I choose to steal what you choose to show
And you know
I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil


Pay me I’ll be your surgeon
I’d like to pick your brain
Capture you inject you
Leave you kneeling in the rain
Kneeling in the rain


I choose to steal what you choose to show
And you know
I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil

I’d like your blue eyed horseshoe
I’d like your emerald horny toad
I’d like to do it to your daughter on a dirt road

And then I’d spend your ransom money
But still I keep your sheep
I’d peel the mask you’re wearing
And then rob you of your sleep
Rob you of your sleep

I choose to steal what you choose to show
And you know
I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking
I’m making a career of evil

Astronomy

Clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Like acid and oil on a madman’s face
His reason tends to fly away
Like lesser birds on the four winds
Like silver scrapes in May
And now the sands become a crust
Most of you have gone away

Come Susie dear, let’s take a walk
Just out there upon the beach
I know you’ll soon be married
And you’ll want to know where winds come from
Well it’s never said at all
On that map that Carrie reads
Behind the clock back there you know
At the Four Winds Bar

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Four winds at the Four Winds Bar
Two doors bought and windows barred
One door to let to take you in
The other one just mirrors it

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hellish glare and inference
The other one’s a duplicate
The Queenly flux, eternal light
Or the light that never warms
Yes, the light that never, never warms
Or the light that never
Never warms
Never warms
Never warms

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Miss Carrie nurse and Susie dear
Would find themselves at the Four Winds Bar

It’s the nexus of the crisis
And the origin of storms
Just the place to hopelessly
Encounter time and then came me

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Call me Desdinova
Eternal light
These gravely digs of mine
Will surely prove a sight
And don’t forget my dog
Fixed and consequent

Nothing Else Matters


So close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
life is ours, we live it our way
all these words I don't just say
and nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
every day for us something new
open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
never cared for what they know
but, I know...

So close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
never cared for what they know
but, I know...

Never opened myself this way
life is ours, we live it our way
all these words I don't just say
and nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
every day for us something new
open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
never cared for games they play
never cared for what they do
never cared for what they know
and, I know...

So close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trusting who we are
no, nothing else matters...

Achilles Last Stand
(Page/Plant)


It was an April morning when they told us we should go
As I turn to you, you smiled at me
How could we say no?

With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had
Oh, the songs to sing, when we at last return again

Sending off a glancing kiss, to those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss,
The devil's in his hole

Oh to sail away, To sandy lands and other days
Oh to touch the dream, Hides inside and never seen.

Into the sun the south the north, at last the birds have flown
The shackles of commitment fell, In pieces on the ground

Oh to ride the wind, To tread the air above the din
Oh to laugh aloud, Dancing as we fought the crowd

To seek the man whose pointing hand, The giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path, That churns up into stone

If one bell should ring, in celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat, As proud the head with heavy feet.

Days went by when you and I, bathed in eternal summers glow
As far away and distant, Our mutual child did grow

Oh the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

Wandering & wandering, What place to rest the search
The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth

The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth...

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way (X2)

Oh the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth.


Bob Seger Roll me Away
Words and music by bob seger

Took a look down a westbound road,
Right away I made my choice
Headed out to my big two-wheeler,
I was tired of my own voice
Took a bead on the northern plains
And just rolled that power on

Twelve hours out of mackinaw city
Stopped in a bar to have a brew
Met a girl and we had a few drinks
And I told her what I’d decided to do
She looked out the window a long long moment
Then she looked into my eyes
She didn’t have to say a thing,
I knew what she was thinkin’

Roll, roll me away,
Won’t you roll me away tonight
I too am lost, I feel double-crossed
And I’m sick of what’s wrong and what’s right
We never even said a word,
We just walked out and got on that bike
And we rolled
And we rolled clean out of sight

We rolled across the high plains
Deep into the mountains
Felt so good to me
Finally feelin’ free

Somewhere along a high road
The air began to turn cold
She said she missed her home
I headed on alone

Stood alone on a mountain top,
Starin’ out at the great divide
I could go east, I could go west,
It was all up to me to decide
Just then I saw a young hawk flyin’
And my soul began to rise
And pretty soon
My heart was singin’

Roll, roll me away,
I’m gonna roll me away tonight
Gotta keep rollin, gotta keep ridin’,
Keep searchin’ till I find what’s right
And as the sunset faded
I spoke to the faintest first starlight
And I said next time
Next time
We’ll get it right

The Rainbow Connection

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
and rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that every wish would be heard
and answered when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
What's so amazing that keeps us star gazing
and what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

All of us under its spell
We know that it's probably magic

Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that called the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm supposed to be
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

this one struck me this morning as i was preparing to begin my day...

Here I Go Again

I don't know where I'm going
But, I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
And I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time
But, here I go again
Here I go again

Though, I keep searching for an answer,
I never seem to find what I'm looking for
Oh Lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on,
'Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

I'm just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on love's sweet charity
And I'm gonna hold on
For the rest of my days,
'Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go...

And I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time

And here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone
'Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time...

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go,
Here I go again...

Favorite Lyrics EVAR!!!!

Syd Barrett - Dark

[i]The poppy birds way
Swing twigs coffee brands around
Brandish her wand with a feathery tongue
My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
Please, please, please lift the hand
I’m only a person with eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all the way...
Won’t you miss me?
Wouldn’t you miss me at all?[/i]

Snake Tongued Beast

Lose your mind
lose it twice
Endless wind and lying eyes
Reveal yourself
and, run your face against the wall

I will not fail
I will not silently give in

Take a chance
take it twice
Catch your dream
succeed in life
Become a star
and, lose yourself in fantasies

I will not fail
I will not silently give in

I will burn
and i will learn
from the thorns in my eyes
I’ll rewind
and i’ll find
my own way to the sky
I’ll learn to get by
but, i will never be like you

Snake tongued beast
with leech morals
Selling dreams
where nightmares are lurking
Collect and claim
the art that never grew in you

I will not fail
I will not silently give in

I will burn
and i’ll learn
from the thorns in my eyes
I’ll rewind
and i’ll find
my own way to the sky
I will learn to get by
but, i will never be like you

Until the sun begins to shine
Until the universe is mine
Until the whole world’s watching me
Until i am what i can be...
will be... will be...

Love's Divine


Then the rainstorm came over me
And I felt my spirit break
I had lost all of my belief, you see
And realized my mistake
But time threw a prayer to me
And all around me became still

I need love, love's divine
Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Through the rainstorm came sanctuary
And I felt my spirit fly
I had found all of my reality
I realize what it takes

'Cause I need love, love's divine
Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I don't bet, don't pray
Show me how to live and promise me you won't forsake
'Cause love can help me know my name

Well, I try to say there's nothing wrong
But inside I felt me lying all alone
But the message here was plain to see
Believe me...

'Cause I need love, love's divine
Please forgive me now I see that I've been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I don't bet, don't break
Show me how to live and promise me you won't forsake
'Cause love can help me know my name

Love can help me know my name

An Innocent Man

Some people stay far away from the door
If there's a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outside
And hope that it just passes by

Some people live with the fear of a touch
And the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyone
So nobody tells them a lie

I know you're only protecting yourself
I know you're thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you
But I'm not above
Making up for the love
You've been denying you could ever feel
I'm not above doing anything
To restore your faith if I can
Some people see through the eyes of the old
Before they ever get look at the young
I'm only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am

Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before
Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that's it's easier to hate
Than to wait anymore
I know you don't want to hear what I say
I know you're gonna keep turning away
But I've been there and if I can survive
I can keep you alive
I'm not above going through it again
I'm not above being cool for a while
If you're cruel to me I'll understand

Some people run from a possible fight
Some people figure they can never win
And although this is a fight I can lose
The accused is an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

You know you only hurt yourself out of spite
I guess you'd rather be a martyr tonight
That's your decision
But I'm not below
Anybody I know
If there's a chance of resurrecting a love
I'm not above going back to the start
To find out where the heartache began

Some people hope for a miracle cure
Some people just accept the world as it is
But I'm not willing to lay down and die
Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

Free

Here's the palm of my hand for a life to see
Here's the thunder-rage as a part of me
Here's the beat of my heart
Here's my reason for asking

Sometimes when the sky falls down on me
When the lightning flash leaves a stain in me
I feel the beat of my heart
It's my reason for asking

Yeah...

Sunrise on a worldwide boulevard
New dice on the edge of a brand new start
Every day is a day
Is a reason for asking

One step for the freefall ride in you
One dive into the dark, deep sea of truth
No one knows where to go
So you might as well take it

Till it feels so real
And you're free

Time flies as the world walks out on you
Toss, turn, it's the catch in 22
Don't you know, don't you know
There's a reason for asking

Sometimes when your head caves in with doubt
You feel like a fool with no way out
Feel the beat of your heart
It's the reason for asking

Until it feels so real
Till your mind reveals
Until it feels so real
And you're free
Until your heart cries out
Until there's no way out
And you're free

Reach out when your heart screams out to you
It's the quest for a lifetime search in you
Put the pace into place
There's a reason for asking

Sometimes when the worst is all you see
You're as free as you'd thought you'd ever be
No one knows where to go
So you might as well taste it

Until it feels so real
Till your mind reveals
Until it feels so real
And you're free
Until your heart cries out
Until there's no way out
Till it feels so real
Till you're free...

So many good lyrics out there, here's one.


The Family Tree

Branches in the wind
still standing here together
One more storm to weather
we'll get through it yet
So we're gathered here
holding on to each other
to let go of another one we won't forget

Now as we say goodbye
to one of our own
We may be lonely
but we're not alone
Though the leaves will fall
and the tears will flow
May it always comfort us to know
the family tree will always grow

Father down to son, mother to daughter
thicker than water, we are made of this
From the Earth we rise
to the Earth returning
We'll keep a candle burning
for the ones we'll miss

And when we say goodbye
to one of our own
We may be lonely
but we're not alone
Though the leaves will fall
and the tears will flow
May it always comfort us to know
The family tree will always grow
it's stronger than the wind can blow
The family tree will always grow

Just A Little Bit Of Peace In My Heart
(G.Kooymans - Dayglow music)

The rainbow hides no treasure
oh believe me it's not true
and there ain't no mixture
that will give you back your youth
No mystic machine that makes the sand turn to gold
Like there ain't no magic word
that holds you back from getting old

I catch a branch
and I break it in my hands
Like you broke my heart
oh I still can't understand
No mysterious mixture
can heal the wound you've made
Only time will bring peace to meand
now I just hate

Oh I'll break up and I give it all up
No more lies, no more rainbow treasures
No more fairytales, no more games for me
It's my life, my life, a pleasure

There's just a little bit of peace in my heart
There's just a little bit of happiness I'll part

I catch a branch
and I break it in my hands
Like you broke my heart
oh I still can't understand
No mysterious mixture
can heal the wound you've made
Only time will bring peace to me
and now I just hate

Oh I'll break up and I give it all up
No more lies, no more rainbow treasures
No more fairytales, no more games for me
It's my life, my life, a pleasure

There's just a little bit of peace in my heart
There's just a little bit of happiness I'll part

The time rolls by, the days go by
When will I learn to stop wondering why
Despairing I'm going down on my knees
I'm begging, begging, begging, oh please

There's just a little bit of peace in my heart
There's just a little bit of happiness I'll part

this is my favorite lyric,

peace,

patricia. :wink:
