    She's over bored and self-assured...
    Ooh, yeah! All right!

    I wanna [Pearl] jam it wid you.
    Were [Pearl] jammin, [Pearl] jammin
    And I hope you like [Pearl] jammin too.

    You're loosin' all your highs and lows... Ain't it funny how the feeling... Goes away?...
    Ooh, yeah! All right!
    Were [Pearl] jammin
    I wanna [Pearl] jam it wid you.
    Were [Pearl] jammin, [Pearl] jammin
    And I hope you like [Pearl] jammin too.

    2112 Presentation

    I know it's most unusual
    To come before you so
    But I've found an ancient miracle
    I thought that you should know

    Listen to my music
    And hear what it can do
    There's something here as strong as life
    I know that it will reach you.

    Yes, we know, it's nothing new
    It's just a waste of time
    We have no need for ancient ways
    The world is doing fine

    Another toy will help destroy
    The elder race of man
    Forget about your silly whim
    It doesn't fit the plan.

    I can't believe you're saying
    These things just can't be true
    Our world could use this beauty
    Just think what we might do.
    *We CAN bomb the World to pieces, but we CAN'T bomb it into PEACE*...Michael Franti

    *MUSIC IS the expression of EMOTION.....and that POLITICS IS merely the DECOY of PERCEPTION*
    .....song_Music & Politics....Michael Franti

    *The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite INSANE*....Nikola Tesla(a man who shaped our world of electricity with his futuristic inventions)

    Did you understand the music, or Yoko was it all in vain?
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    A song by RUSH on the travels for the best weed on can find......

    A Passage To Bangkok

    Our first stop is in Bogotá
    To check Columbian fields
    The natives smile and pass along
    A sample of their yield
    Sweet Jamaican pipe dreams
    Golden Acapulco nights
    Then Morocco, and the East,
    Fly by morning light

    We're on the train to Bangkok
    Aboard the Thailand Express
    We'll hit the stops along the way
    We only stop for the best

    Wreathed in smoke in Lebanon
    We burn the midnight oil
    The fragrance of Afghanistan
    Rewards a long day's toil
    Pulling into Kathmandu
    Smoke rings fill the air
    Perfumed by a Nepal night
    The Express gets you there

    Don't be deceived, no land in sight
    We're all adrift in this dark night
    We float on seas of disbelief
    While singing songs of pain relief..

    Shake my body - release my soul
    Punish my senses - lose control
    This body's young but my spirit's old
    Scatter my ashes and let my feelings go..

    Time can tear down a building, or destroy a woman's face

    Time waits for no one, and he won't wait for me

    Every breaking wave on the shore
    Tells the next one there'll be one more
    Every gambler knows that to lose
    Is what you're really there for

    Somewhere else fearlessness
    Now I speak into an answer phone

    Like every silent leave on the breeze
    Winter wouldn't leave it alone

    Hey now, hey now
    I don't know if I'm that strong
    I don't know if I'm that strong
    I don't know if I'm that strong
    To be somebody
    To need someone

    Every sailor knows that the sea
    Is a friend-made-enemy
    Every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
    To live without and to receive

    I thought I heard the master's voice
    It's hard to listen while you preach

    Like every broken wave on the shore
    This was as far as I can reach

    Hey now, hey now
    I don't know if I'm that strong
    I don't know if I'm that strong
    I don't know if I'm that strong
    To be somebody
    To need someone

    The waves know where are the rocks
    And drowning is no sin
    And you know my heart is
    In the same place yours has been
    And we know the fear of winning
    So we end before we begin

    The waves know where are the rocks
    And drowning is no sin
    You know my heart is
    The same place yours has been
    And we know the fear of wind
    Should end before we begin


    One their BEST songs in years hard to get it out of my head. I think a song about love like in poker are you ALL in OUT with the risk of losing it all.

    Peace

    beautiful song
    well delivered
    well written
    but it tells me the person is weak
    for some reason is why im not
    thrilled about it

    Imagine a man when it all began
    The pilot of 'Enola Gay'
    Flying out of the shockwave on that August day
    All the powers that be, and the course of history
    Would be changed forevermore

    "It's a town full of losers, i'm pulling outta here to win"

    This song from Metallica’s third album is an anti-war song. It is one of the most intense songs Metallica has ever written, with certain sections performed at 220 beats per minute.

    The lyrics tell the story from the point of view of a soldier on the battlefield who receives orders from his general to keep fighting, no matter how many will die. The general believes his soldiers are merely expendable tools.


    Disposable Heroes

    Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
    No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
    Running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
    Victim of what said should be
    A servant 'til I fall

    Soldier boy, made of clay
    Now an empty shell
    Twenty-one, only son
    But he served us well
    Bred to kill, not to care
    Do just as we say
    Finished here
    Greetings, Death
    He’s yours to take away

    Back to the front
    You will do what I say, when I say
    Back to the front
    You will die when I say, you must die
    Back to the front
    You coward
    You servant
    You blind man

    Barking of machinegun fire does nothing to me now
    Sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
    More a man, more stripes you bare, glory-seeker trends
    Bodies fill the fields I see
    The slaughter never ends.......


    As the song continues its one of their best songs from Master of Puppets

    Peace

    "Show me how you do that trick
    The one that makes me scream" she said
    "The one that makes me laugh" she said
    And threw her arms around my neck
    "Show me how you do it
    And I promise you I promise that
    I'll run away with you
    I'll run away with you"

    Spinning on that dizzy edge
    I kissed her face and kissed her head
    And dreamed of all the different ways I had
    To make her glow
    "Why are you so far away?" she said
    "Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
    That I'm in love with you"

    You
    Soft and only
    You
    Lost and lonely
    You
    Strange as angels
    Dancing in the deepest oceans
    Twisting in the water
    You're just like a dream

    Daylight licked me into shape
    I must have been asleep for days
    And moving lips to breathe her name
    I opened up my eyes
    And found myself alone alone
    Alone above a raging sea
    That stole the only girl I loved
    And drowned her deep inside of me

    You
    Soft and only
    You
    Lost and lonely
    You
    Just like heaven

    They say time
    heals the broken heart
    days go by
    and the healing starts

    They say life,
    life goes on

    but I know they're wrong
