    And I know that I'll die
    The in between is mine
    I am mine

    This one from my 2nd favorite RUSH song.....

    All that we can do is just survive
    All that we can do to help ourselves
    Is stay alive...

    Ragged lines of ragged grey
    Skeletons, they shuffle away
    Shouting guards and smoking guns
    Will cut down the unlucky ones

    I clutch the wire fence
    Until my fingers bleed
    A wound that will not heal-
    A heart that cannot feel-
    Hoping that the horror will recede
    Hoping that tomorrow-
    We'll all be freed....


    Red Sector A...a song about The Holocaust

    Peace

    "I won't do the shit that piss you off and make you mad
    Like running late to dinner with your business friends
    Or being out late night with the fellas at the club
    Or the time I forgot your birthday cuZ I's at the studio
    And I will try to be a little more sensitive
    Because I love you baby boo boo
    And I need a place to live
    I Can't go back to Jersey
    I ain't goin' back
    I Can't go back to Jersey
    I ain't goin' back
    I Can't go back to Jersey
    I ain't goin' back
    Why ya Why ya Why ya
    Gotta do me like that?"

    G. Love - "Can't Go Back to Jersey"
    Not necessarily rock but great lyrics none the less. This always puts a smile on my face :)

    Out here in the fields
    I fight for my meals
    I get my back into my living
    I don't need to fight
    To prove I'm right
    I don't need to be forgiven

    Let me ask you one question
    Is your money that good
    Will it buy you forgiveness
    Do you think that it could
    I think you will find
    When your death takes its toll
    All the money you made
    Will never buy back your soul

    I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
    I saw boys, toys electric irons and T.V.'s
    My brain hurt like a warehouse
    it had no room to spare
    I had to cram so many things
    to store everything in there
    And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
    And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
    I never thought I'd need so many people

    If I don't find a way to see through the gray that clouds my mind.

    So you say you want to go to Heaven,
    Well I got the plans.

    And it breeds like Kubla Khan.

    Every day I wake up
    We drink a lot of coffee and watch the CNN
    Every day I wake up to a bowl of clover honey
    And let the locusts fly in

    Lobster backs attack the town again
    Wrap all my things in aluminum
    Beams of darkness streak across the sky
    Pink rays from the ancient satellite

    Every time I look out my window
    Same three dogs looking back at me
    Every time I open my windows
    Cranes fly in to terrorize me

    The power of the Holy Ghost
    Shadow of the New Praetorian
    Tipping cows in fields Elysian
    Saturnalia for all you have
    The seven habits of the highly infected calf

    Swan diving off the tongues of crippled giants
    International Business Machine
    Choking on bits of barley bread crumbs
    Oh, this burning beard, I have come undone
    It's just as I've feared, I have, I have come undone

    Bugger dumb the last of academe
    Occam's razor makes the cutting clean
    Shavin' like a banker, lilac vegetable
    Break the glass ceiling and the golden parachute on down

    The power of the Holy Ghost comes to town
    Shadow of the New Praetorian
    Tipping cows in fields Elysian
    Saturnalia for all you have
    The seven habits of the highly infected calf

    When you feel your life ain't worth living
    you've got to stand up and
    take a look around you then a look way up to the sky.
    And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
    keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die.

    If I were a swan, I'd be gone.
    If I were a train, I'd be late.
    And if I were a good man, I'd talk with you more often than I do.
    If I were to sleep, I could dream.
    If I were afraid, I could hide.
    If I go insane, please don't put your wires in my brain.
    If I were the moon, I'd be cool.
    If I were a rule, I would bend.
    If I were a good man, I'd understand the spaces between friends.
    If I were alone, I would cry.
    And if I were with you, I'd be home and dry.
    And if I go insane, will you still let me join in with the game?
    If I were a swan, I'd be gone.
    If I were a train, I'd be late again.
    If I were a good man, I'd talk to you more often than I do.

    The Gaslight Anthem
    "Dark Places"

    If I thought it would help, I would drive this car into the sea.
    If the fire and the smoke and explosions could speak for me.
    If the words that I used to try to explain
    How something inside of me started to break.
    Ah, but one by one my words just got in the way.

    And how many nights did I crash against the waves
    With my head going under?
    How many days did I spend trying to see it your way?
    If you try you'd remember.
    I changed a change and kept on saying,
    "One of these days something inside's gonna break.
    And we won't get it back now, baby" (something's gonna break.)


    If I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart.
    (If I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart)
    And if I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart.
    (If I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart)

    All of the things that I tried to explain,
    How something inside of me started to break.
    We were living proof, one by one we drifted away.
    One by one we drifted away.

    And time after time there were things that would scare me to tears,
    While you called me haunted.
    I paced around the bed where you laid.
    One of these days baby, something… (something's gonna break)

    And if I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart.
    (If I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart)
    And if I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart.
    (If I thought it would help I would carve your name into my heart)

    And now I'll close my eyes really, really tight
    and make you all go away
    I'll make you all go away
    I'll make you all go... away...

    I'll pull the trigger and make it all go away
    I'll make it all go away
    I'll make it all go away

    There's a lot things I never believed
    Like that I'd ever drown in the sea
    I'm not bitter I'd sail out again if I could
    There was a lot of things I never believed
    Like that I'd ever drown in the sea
    Lived a man in control of his life who believed
    To die doing what you love is alright
