Since the last version of this thread is now 4 years old, and was never moved to the Forum Games Forum, where it belonged, it's time to start a new one! :D

As usual, this thread is for sharing your favorite song lyrics (or poetry, as they're basically the same thing, anyway.)

I'll start off with what has sadly become the Theme Song for 2016 in my mind...

"Who Taught You How to Hate?" by Disturbed (https://youtu.be/zXY1Kmj_PaI)
I hear the voices echoing around me,
angered eyes that don't even know who I am,
looking to kill again
(They will kill again)
As the unknown enemies surround me,
wicked laughter resonates inside my head,
and I am filled with dread
(and adrenaline)
What did I do? Why do I deserve this?
So we're different,
why do I deserve to die now?
Give me a reason why

Then it all goes a blur,
let instinct take flight
Find my hands on his throat,
yet hear myself say...

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn't in your blood,
not a part of what you're made
So let this be understood,
somebody taught you how to hate
When you live this way, you become
dead to everyone

A father's pride, my son walking beside me
I look around and marvel at the children playing,
in perfect disarray
(So innocent)
No judgement, pure exhilaration
Black to white, the colors aren't on their minds,
nothing predefined
(All different)
There's always one who plants an evil seed, and
preaches fear to pull you to the other side,
into a world of lies

Everything is unsure when you've lost your sight
Can there still be a cure?
What made you this way?

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn't in your blood,
not a part of what you're made
So let this be understood,
somebody taught you how to hate
When you live this way, you become
dead to everyone

(You're not anyone)
Oh

Lost all innocence,
infected and arrogant
You burn all your life
(There's no telling you)
No deliverance,
consumed by the pestilence
of hate, you're denied
Deep in your heart, does it still remain?
Do you think you can bring it
back to life again?
Is it still in your soul?
(No saving you)
Where's the deviant,
the unholy revenant
that has made you this way?
Made you fall for this hate

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn't in your blood,
not a part of what you're made
So let this be understood!
Somebody taught you how to hate
When you live this way, you become
(You become)

Tell me now, who taught you how to hate?
Because it isn't in your blood,
not a part of what you're made
So let this be understood!
Somebody taught you how to hate!
When you live this way, you become
(you become)
dead to everyone!
(You're not anyone)

Have fun with the new thread, be excellent to each other, and PARTY ON, DUDES! :wave:

2 Minutes To Midnight - Iron Maiden

Kill for gain or shoot to maim
But we don't need a reason
To Golden Goose is on the loose
And never out of season
Blackened pride still burns inside
This shell of bloody treason
Here's my gun for a barrel of fun
For the love of living death

The killer's breed or the Demon's seed,
The glamour, the fortune, the pain,
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
Don't you pray for my soul anymore?

2 minutes to midnight,
The hands that threaten doom.
2 minutes to midnight,
To kill the unborn in the womb.

The blind men shout "Let the creatures out
We'll show the unbelievers."
The napalm screams of human flames
Of a prime time Belsen feast ... yeah!
As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.

The killer's breed or the Demon's seed,
The glamour, the fortune, the pain,
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
Don't you pray for my soul anymore.

2 minutes to midnight,
The hands that threaten doom.
2 minutes to midnight,
To kill the unborn in the womb.

The body bags and little rags of children torn in two
And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun.

The killer's breed or the Demon's seed,
The glamour, the fortune, the pain,
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
Don't you pray for my soul anymore.

2 minutes to midnight,
The hands that threaten doom.
2 minutes to midnight,
To kill the unborn in the womb.

Midnight
Midnight
Midnight
It's all night

Midnight
Midnight
Midnight
It's all night

My current mood...

"I Don't Believe In Love" by Queensr˙che (https://youtu.be/1Z7tWl-aRZk)
I awoke on impact,
under surveillance from the camera eye,
searching high and low
The criminal mind found at the scene of the crime,
handcuffed and blind, I didn't do it
She said she loved me, I guess I never knew
But do we ever, ever really know?
She said she'd meet me on the other side,
but I knew right then, I'd never find her

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel

No more nightmares, I've seen them all
From the day I was born, they've haunted my every move
Every open hand's there to push and shove
No time for love, it doesn't matter
She made a difference, I guess she had a way
of making every night seem bright as day
Now I walk in shadows, never see the light
She must have lied, 'cause she never said goodbye!

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
I'll just pretend she never was real
I don't believe in love
I need to forget her face, I see it still!
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel

No chance for contact
There's no raison d'ętre
My only hope is someday I'll forget
the pain of knowing what can never be
With or without love, it's all the same to me

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
I'll just pretend she never was real
I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will!
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel
Feel
Pain that you feel
Feel

"The Blood Legion" by In This Moment (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEILkplF9oo)
Tonight, it feels like a good day to die
Tonight, it feels like a good day to rise
Tonight, we live

Tonight, it feels like a good day to fly
Tonight, it feels like the gods are alive
Tonight, we turn, we ascend
We believe our divinity

I will not bow down
I'll rise through the sun
I'm transcending
I am claiming my throne
We are immortal
We rise from the wraith
We are eternal
You are my blood legion
My faith

I will not bow down
I'll rise through the sun
I'm transcending
I am claiming my throne
We are immortal
We rise from the wraith
We are eternal
You are my blood legion
My faith

We are immortal
We rise from the wraith

We are eternal
You are my blood legion
My faith

Probably my favorite lyrics ever. Feels... kinda uplifting.

Faster - Manic Street Preachers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl2Jv4dzFqg)

I hate purity
Hate goodness
I don't want virtue to exist anywhere
I want everyone corrupt

I am an architect, they call me a butcher
I am a pioneer, they call me primitive
I am purity, they call me perverted
Holding you but I only miss these things when they leave

I am idiot drug hive, the virgin, the tattered and the torn
Life is for the cold made warm and they are just lizards
Self-disgust is self-obsession honey and I do as I please
A morality obedient, only to the cleansed repented

I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer
I spat out Plath and Pinter
I am all the things that you regret
A truth that washes that learnt how to spell

The first time you see yourself naked you cry
Soft skin now acne, foul breath, so broken
He loves me truly this mute solitude I'm draining
I know I believe in nothing but it is my nothing

Sleep can't hide the thoughts splitting through my mind
Shadows aren't clean, false mirrors too many people awake
If you stand up like a nail then you will be knocked down
I've been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else

I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer
I spat out Plath and Pinter
I am all the things that you regret
A truth that washes that learnt how to spell, learnt to spell

So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything
So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything
So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything
So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything

Sometimes its one particular verse from Red Hot Chili Peppers:

Throw me to the wolves,
because there's order in the pack.
Throw me to the sky,
Because I know I'm coming back.

Other times, even though people tell me its sad I like "Sound of silence" - the Disturbed cover.
Music, more often for me, its the beat or overall sound catches me more than lyrics.

Music, more often for me, its the beat or overall sound catches me more than lyrics.

Me too. Very often I don't even register the words, or only can understand a few words. But here's something I like. I cut a few repeated stanzas.

"Uprising" Muse


Paranoia is in bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume
They'll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down
And hope that we will never see the truth around
(so come on)

Another promise, another seed
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed
And all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(so come on)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
(so come on)

Interchanging mind control
Come, let the revolution take its toll
If you could flick the switch and open your third eye
You'd see that we should never be afraid to die
(so come on)

Rise up and take the power back
It's time the fat cats had a heart attack
You know that their time's coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
(so come on)

Very appropriate with all the crap that's going on in the world this year...

"Hate By Design" by Killswitch Engage (https://youtu.be/Mu0FFEAVulI)
Yeah!

Born into this world of hatred!

We are born free
from the restraints of this society,
helpless to what is instilled!
(Yeah)
To all those who raise us, mold us, and shape us:
There is a time to separate from this!

A reason why, a state of mind,
there's a disconnection,
a judgement made
Fueled by hate, it's your mistake,
it's a choice you made
It's tearing us apart!

Hate,
hate by design,
is destroying our lives!
Seek to find
some understanding
Redefine your life!

Consequence effected
in a life that is rejected,
anger misplaced!
A burden on our hearts,
that's keeping us apart,
no love,
no understanding!

What we design is hate inside,
a misconception,
a judgement made
(a judgement made!)

It's our mistake,
what we create
when we lose compassion,
it's tearing us apart!

Hate,
hate by design,
(hate by design)
is destroying our lives!
Seek to find
(we'll seek to find)
some understanding,
redefine your life!

Redefine your understanding!
Redefine your own life!
(Go!)

Hate,
hate by design,
(by design)
is destroying our lives!
(our lives)
Seek to find
some understanding
Redefine your life!

"Open Your Eyes" by Staind (https://youtu.be/9SQn_h8tFJM)
As I walk along these streets,
I see a man who walks alone
Distant echo of people's feet,
he has no place to call his own
A shot rings out from a roof overhead
A crackhead asks for change nearby
An old man lies in an alleyway dead
A little girl lost just stands there and cries

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?

A boy, just thirteen, on the corner for sale
swallows his pride for another hit
Overpopulation, there's no room in jail
And most of you don't give a shit
that your daughters are porno stars,
and your sons sell death to kids
You're so lost in your little worlds,
your little worlds you'll never fix!

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?

You turn away
You turn away
You turn away
You turn away

As I walk along these streets,
soaking up the acid rain
Underneath the taxi cabs,
I hear the streets cry out in vain!

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?

What would you do
(What would you do)
if it was you?
(if it was you?)
Would you take everything
for granted like you do?

Gloom, despair, and agony on me!
Deep, dark, depression, excessive misery!
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all..
Gloom, despair, and agony on me!

Hey, you asked....

Also,...

Can't help it 'bout the shape I'm in,
I can't sing, I ain't pretty, and my legs are thin...
Don't ask me what I think of you,
I might not give the answer that you want me to.

This song is a perfect description of what I've been going through for the last 4 years. :(

"World So Cold" by Three Days Grace (https://youtu.be/WhqI54zOEd8)
I never thought I'd feel this
guilty and I'm broken down inside
Livin' with myself, nothin' but lies

I always thought I'd make it,
but never knew I'd let it get so bad
Livin' with myself is all I have

I feel numb
I can't come to life
I feel like I'm frozen in time!

Livin' in a world so cold,
wastin' away
Livin' in a shell with no soul,
since you've gone away
Livin' in a world so cold,
countin' the days
since you've gone away
You've gone away

Do you ever feel me?
Do you ever look deep down inside,
starin' at yourself, paralyzed?

I feel numb
I can't come to life
I feel like I'm frozen in time

Livin' in a world so cold,
wastin' away
Livin' in a shell with no soul,
since you've gone away
Livin' in a world so cold,
countin' the days
since you've gone away
You've gone away from me

I'm too young (I'm too young)
to lose my soul
I'm too young (I'm too young)
to feel this old!
So long (so long)
I'm left behind
I feel like I'm losin' my mind

Do you ever feel me?
Do you ever look deep down inside,
starin' at your life, paralyzed?

Livin' in a world so cold,
wastin' away
Livin' in a shell with no soul,
since you've gone away
Livin' in a world so cold,
countin' the days
since you've gone away
You've gone away from me

I'm too young (I'm too young)
I'm too young (I'm too young)

And now some more lyrics from the band that started it all... both of these are from the 2013 album 13...

"Damaged Soul" by Black Sabbath (https://youtu.be/A3dstAb3Jvo)
Born in a graveyard, adopted by sin
I cultivate evil that’s living within
A preacher tried saving my black damaged soul
Possessed by a demon that had full control

The time it is coming when all life will end
With doomsday approaching, to Hell we’ll descend
Religion won’t save me, the damage is done
The future has ended before it’s begun

Death’s hand and the crazy, I can’t stand the light of day
Watching all the victims on their knees as they pray
God of the almighty never answers their call
Satan is waiting for the righteous to fall to him

I don’t mind dying, 'cause I’m already dead
Pray not for the living, I’ll live in your head
Dying is easy, it’s living that’s hard
I’m losing the battle between Satan and God!

"Age of Reason" by Black Sabbath (https://youtu.be/UN2JETFKYaE)
Do you hear the thunder raging in the sky?
Premonition of a shattered world that’s gonna die
In the Age of Reason, how do we survive?
The protocols of evil ravaging so many lives
So many lives
So many lives

Mystifying silence, talking peace on Earth
We should judge each other for ourselves,
not what we’re worth
Sustainable extinction, a fractured human race
A changing revolution disappears without a trace
Without a trace
Without a trace
Alright, yeah

Always felt that there’d be trouble
Mass distraction hides the truth
Prozac days and sleepless hours
Seeds of change that don’t bear fruit

Oh yeah

These times are heavy, and you’re all alone
The battle’s over, but the war goes on
Politics, religion, love of money too
It’s what the world was built for,
but not for me and you
Oh yeah
:wave:

"Alone Again" by Dokken (https://youtu.be/xJcd2FPSdBw)
I'd like to see you in the morning light
I like to feel you when it comes to the night
Now I'm here and I'm all alone
Still I know how it feels,
I'm alone again

Tried so hard to make you see
But I couldn't find the words
Now the tears, they fall like rain
I'm alone again without you

Alone again without you
Alone again without you

I said, "Stay", but you turned away
Tried to say that it was me
Now I'm here and I've lost my way
Now I know how it feels,
I'm alone again

Tried so hard to make you see
But I couldn't find the words
Now the tears, they fall like rain
I'm alone again without you

Alone again without you
Alone again without you
Alone again without you

I tried so hard to make you see
But I couldn't find the words
Now the tears, they fall like rain
I'm alone again without you

Alone again without you
Alone again, alone again
Alone again without you

This next song reminds me of a DC Comics character that dates all the way back to the Golden Age of Comics, and like most characters from that era, he was born from the traditions of the Pulp Fiction Magazines of the era. The Spectre (http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Spectre) is the Spirit of God's Vengeance, paired up with a human "host" who guides him in his mission to seek out, judge, and punish those who are truly wicked.

"The Vengeful One" by Disturbed (https://youtu.be/8nW-IPrzM1g)
He's observing the chaos,
taking in the lack of raw humanity
It's as if the entire world's
fallen in love with their insanity!
Hear the innocent voices scream
as their tormentors laugh through all of it
No forgiveness for all I've seen,
the degradation I cannot forget

So sleep soundly in your beds tonight
Judgement falls upon you at first light!

http://static.srcdn.com/slir/w568-h308-q90-c568:308/wp-content/uploads/The-Spectre-TV-Show.jpg

I'm the Hand of God
I'm the Dark Messiah
I'm the Vengeful One
(Look inside and see what you're becoming)
In the blackest moment of a dying world,
what have you become?
(Look inside and see what you're becoming!)

As the violence surges
and the teeming masses have been terrorized,
the human predators all gone mad
are reaping profits born from their demise
The rabid media plays their roles,
stoking the flames of war to no surprise
Only too eager to sell their souls,
for the Apocalypse must be televised

So sleep soundly in your beds tonight
Judgement falls upon you at first light!

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/05/f5/16/05f51631304f3b495385a200bd813ecb.jpg

I'm the Hand of God
I'm the Dark Messiah
I'm the Vengeful One
(Look inside and see what you're becoming)
In the blackest moment of a dying world,
what have you become?
(Look inside and see what you're becoming!)

When you die,
you'll know why
For you cannot be saved
with all the world enslaved!
When you die,
you'll know why

You'll die,
you'll know why
For you cannot be saved,
this world is too depraved!
When you die
you'll know why!

(Look inside and see what you're becoming)
In the blackest moment of a dying world,

I'm the Hand of God
I'm the Dark Messiah
I'm the Vengeful One
(Look inside and see what you're becoming)
In the blackest moment of a dying world,

(Look inside and see what you're becoming!)
Look inside and see what you're becoming!

Given the events of this week, this song, one of my all-time favorites, seems wholly appropriate. Here's Pink Floyd singing about the true source of much of the suffering we all go through. The accompanying video is also very powerful...

"Us and Them" by Pink Floyd (https://youtu.be/9K1PCk5GD7o)
Us and them
And after all,
we're only ordinary men

Me and you
God only knows,
it's not what we would choose to do

"Forward!" he cried,
from the rear,
and the front rank died
And the General sat,
as the lines on the map
moved from side to side

Black and blue
And who knows
which is which, and who is who?

Up and down
And in the end,
it's only round and round, and round

"Haven't you heard?
It's a battle of words!"
The poster bearer cried.
"Listen, son,"
said the man with the gun,
"there's room for you inside."

"Well, I mean, they're gonna kill ya, so like, if you give 'em a quick sh...short, sharp shock, they don't do it again.
Dig it? I mean he got off light, 'cause I could've given 'im a thrashin' but I only hit him once.
It's only the difference between right and wrong innit? I mean good manners don't cost nothing, do they? Eh?"

Down and out
It can't be helped,
but there's a lot of it about

With, without
And who'll deny
it's what the fighting's all about?

Out of the way,
it's a busy day
I've got things on my mind
For want of the price
of tea and a slice,
the old man died

:blink:

In honor of the release of Metallica's new album yesterday, my posts in this topic for the rest of the month will be MANDATORY METALLICA!!! :muya:

For starters we have a song that was directly responsible for me becoming one of their fans back in the early '90s, 'cuz it's the story of my life...

"The Unforgiven" by Metallica (https://youtu.be/Ckom3gf57Yw)
New blood joins this Earth,
and quickly he's subdued
Through constant pained disgrace,
the young boy learns their rules
With time, the child draws in,
this whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts,
the young man struggles on and on, he's known
Ooo, a vow unto his own,
that never from this day,
his will they'll take away!

What I've felt, what I've known,
never shined through in what I've shown
Never be, never see,
won't see what might have been

What I've felt, what I've known,
never shined through in what I've shown
Never free, never me,
so I dub thee unforgiven

They dedicate their lives
to running all of his!
He tries to please them all,
this bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same,
he's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win,
a tired man they see no longer cares!
The old man then prepares
to die regretfully
That old man here is me

What I've felt, what I've known,
never shined through in what I've shown
Never be, never see,
won't see what might have been

What I've felt, what I've known,
never shined through in what I've shown
Never free, never me,
so I dub thee unforgiven

[solo]

What I've felt, what I've known,
never shined through in what I've shown
Never be, never see,
won't see what might have been

What I've felt, what I've known,
never shined through in what I've shown
Never free, never me,
so I dub thee unforgiven

Never free, never me,
so I dub thee unforgiven

You labelled me, I'll label you
So I dub thee unforgiven

Never free, never me!
So I dub thee unforgiven

You labelled me, I'll label you
So I dub thee unforgiven

Never free, never me,
so I dub thee unforgiven

"Wheels of Confusion" by Black Sabbath (https://youtu.be/B1oBbU-6egg)

Long ago I wandered through my mind,
in the land of fairy tales and stories
Lost in happiness, I didn't know fears
Innocence and love was all I knew,
was an illusion!

Soon the days were passing into haze
Happiness just didn't come so easy
Life was more than fairy tales and daydreams
Innocence was just another word,
was an illusion!

Lost in the wheels of confusion
Running through valleys of tears
Eyes full of angry delusion
Hiding in everyday fears

So, I found that life is just a game
But, you know, there's never been a winner!
Try your hardest, you'll still be a loser
The world will still be turning when you're gone
Yeah, when you're gone!

For this year in general:

Life Is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93ZxcBXGnDc)
Meat Loaf (Songwriter: Jim Steinman)

I want my money back
I want my money back

It's all or nothing
And nothing's all I ever get
Every time I turn it on
I burn it up and burn it out

It's always something
There's always something going wrong
That's the only guarantee
That's what this is all about

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie, and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

And all the morons
And all the stooges with their coins
They're the ones who make the rules
It's not a game, it's just a rout

There's desperation
There's desperation in the air
It leaves a stain on all your clothes
And no detergent gets it out

And we're always slipping through the the cracks
Then the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!
I want my money back
I want my money back

What about love?
It's defective!
It's always breaking in half
What about sex?!
It's defective!
It's never built to really last
What about your family?
It's defective!
All the batteries are shot
What about your friends?
They're defective!
All the parts are out of stock
What about hope?
It's defective!
It's corroded and decayed
What about faith?
It's defective!
It's tattered and it's frayed
What about your Gods?
They're defective!
They forgot the warranty
What about your town?
It's defective!
It's a dead end street to me
What about your school?
It's defective!
It's a pack of useless lies
What about your work?
It's defective!
It's a crock and then you die
What about your childhood?
It's defective!
It's dead and buried in the past
What about your future?
It's defective!

And you can shove it up your ass!!
I want my money back
I want my money back

It's all or nothing
And nothing's all I ever get
Every time I turn it on
I burn it up and burn it out

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie, and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!
And we're always slipping through the the cracks
Then the movie's over-fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

"Halo On Fire" by Metallica (https://youtu.be/WbxH5S9_A3M)
Obey, obey,
come won't you stay?
Sincere, sincere,
all ends in tears
Endure, endure,
thoughts most impure
Concede, concede,
but both shall we bleed

Oh! Halo on fire,
the midnight knows it well!
Fast, is desire,
creates another hell!
I fear to turn on the light,
for the darkness won't go away!
Fast, is desire
Turn out the light
Halo on fire!

Allure, allure,
sweetness obscure
Abide, abide,
secrets inside
Deprive, deprive,
to feel so alive
Obey, obey,
just don't turn away!

Oh! Halo on fire,
the midnight knows it well
Fast, is desire,
creates another hell!
I fear to turn on the light,
for the darkness won't go away!
Fast, is desire
Turn out the light
Halo on fire!

Prayers cannot get through,
return to sender
Unto which of you
shall I surrender?
Twisting in disguise,
dark resurrection
Lighting up the skies,
wicked perfection

Too dark to sleep,
can't slip away
Open or closed,
my eyes betray
Beyond the black,
come won't you stay?

Hello darkness, say goodbye
Hello darkness, say goodbye
Hello darkness, say goodbye
:super:

"The Thing That Should Not Be" by Metallica (https://youtu.be/eoUdo2s5miE)

Messenger of fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light!

Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for father, roaming free!

Fearless wretch,
insanity
He watches,
lurking beneath the sea
Great Old One,
forbidden site
He searches,
hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal
In madness you dwell!

Crawling chaos underground
Cult has summoned twisted sound!

Out from ruins once possessed
Fallen city, living death!

Fearless wretch,
insanity
He watches,
lurking beneath the sea
Timeless sleep
has been upset
He wakens,
hunter of the shadows is rising!
Immortal
In madness you dwell!

Not dead which eternal lie
Stranger eons death may die!

Drain you of your sanity
Face the thing that should not be!

Fearless wretch,

Great Old One,

Immortal

"Dream No More" by Metallica (https://youtu.be/yqIQvE5R1tU)

He sleeps under black seas waiting,
lies dreaming in death
He sleeps under cosmos shaking,
stars granting his breath

He wakes as the world dies screaming,
all horrors arrive
He wakes giving earth its bleeding,
pure madness alive

And He haunts you!
And He blinds your soul
And He loathes you!
And reclaims it all

You turn to stone
Can't look away!
You turn to stone
Madness, they say

Cthulhu awaken!

https://partiallyexaminedlife.com/wp-content/uploads/cthulu.jpg

He sways in abyss returning,
inhaling black skies
He shakes with a torture burning,
all lost in his eyes

And He haunts you!
And He blinds your soul
And He loathes you!
And reclaims it all

You turn to stone
Can't look away!
You turn to stone
Madness, they say

Cthulhu awaken!

https://cthulhuwho1.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/cthulhu-fans.jpg?w=640&h=244

You turn to stone
Can't look away!
You turn to stone
Madness, they say

Sanity taken,
seething damnation
Cthulhu awaken!
(Wake) Winged Salvation,
death by creation
Cthulhu, awaken!
(Wake) Dreaming no more!

"Moth Into Flame" by Metallica (https://youtu.be/4tdKl-gTpZg)
Blacked out
Pop queen, amphetamine
The screams crashed into silence

Tapped out
Doused in the gasoline
The high times going timeless

Decadence
Death of the innocence
The pathway starts to spiral

Infamy
All for publicity
Destruction going viral

Light it up
Ah, light it up
Another hit erases all the pain
Bulletproof
Ah, killer truth
You're falling, but you think you're flying high
High again

Sold your soul
Built a higher wall
Yesterday
Now you're thrown away

Same rise and fall
Who cares at all?
Seduced by fame
A moth into the flame!

Twisted
Backstabbing wicked
The delusion absolution

Perjurer
Fame is the murderer
Seduced you into ruin

Light it up
Ah, light it up
Another hit erases all the pain
Bulletproof
Ah, tell the truth
You're falling, but you think you're flying high
High again

Sold your soul
Built the higher wall
Yesterday
Now you're thrown away

Same rise and fall
Who cares at all?
Seduced by fame
A moth into the flame
Burn

Guarantee your name, you go and kill yourself
The vultures feast around you still
Overdose on shame and insecurity
If one won't do, that fistful will!

Death scene
Black hearse, the limousine
A grave filled with seduction

Vaccine
Fame does the murdering
She builds up for destruction

So light it up
Ah, light it up
Another hit erases all the pain
Bulletproof
Ah, no excuse
You're falling, but you think you're flying high
High again

Sold your soul
Built the higher wall
Yesterday
Now you're thrown away

Same rise and fall
Who cares at all?
Seduced by fame
A moth into the flame!

Addicted to the
Fame!

This is the message the world needs to embrace now, more than ever before...

"Imagine" by John Lennon (https://youtu.be/04FjzBuxdO8)

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No Hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace
Yoo hoo ooh ooh ooh

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can?
No need for greed or hunger
A Brotherhood of Man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world
Yoo hoo ooh ooh ooh

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Be excellent to each other... AND PARTY ON, DUDES! :wave:

"Dreamer" by Ozzy Osbourne (https://youtu.be/LCCiwPEdEpg)
Gazing through the window at the world outside,
wondering will Mother Earth survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her, sometime

After all, there's only just the two of us
And here we are, still fighting for our lives
Watching all of history repeat itself, time after time

I'm just a dreamer, I dream my life away
I'm just a dreamer, who dreams of better days

I watch the sun go down like everyone of us
I'm hoping that the dawn will bring a sign
A better place for those who will come after us, this time

I'm just a dreamer, I dream my life away, oh yeah
I'm just a dreamer, who dreams of better days

Your higher power, maybe God, or Jesus Christ
It doesn't really matter much to me
Without each other's help, there ain't no hope for us
I'm living in a dream of fantasy, oh yeah yeah yeah!

If only we could all just find serenity
It would be nice if we could live as one
When will all this anger, hate, and bigotry be gone?

I'm just a dreamer, I dream my life away, today
I'm just a dreamer, who dreams of better days, okay
I'm just a dreamer, who's searching for the way, today
I'm just a dreamer, dreaming my life away
Oh, yeah yeah yeah

Here's my current metal obsession, a new song I just heard on Sirius-XM this week, all about the new reality of the world in 2017...

"The Doomed" by A Perfect Circle (https://youtu.be/hmigJRGHRQM)
Behold a new Christ
Behold the same old horde
Gather at the altering
New beginning, new word
And the word was death
And the word was without light
The new beatitude:
"Good luck, you're on your own"

Blessed are the fornicates
May we bend down to be their whores
Blessed are the rich
May we labor; deliver them more
Blessed are the envious
Bless the slothful, the wrathful, the vain
Blessed are the gluttonous
May they feast us to famine and war

What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
All doomed
All doomed

Behold a new Christ
Behold the same old horde
Gather at the altering
New beginning, new word
And the word was death
And the word was without light
The new beatitude:
"Good luck..."

What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
What of the righteous?
What of the charitable?
What of the truthful, the dutiful, the decent?

Doomed are the poor
Doomed are the peaceful
Doomed are the meek
Doomed are the merciful
For the word is now death
And the word is now without light
The new beatitude:
"Fuck the doomed, you're on your own!"

"TalkTalk" by A Perfect Circle (https://youtu.be/1X0ERQweBHI)

You're waiting on miracles
We're bleeding out
Thoughts and prayers, adorable
Like cake in a crisis
We're bleeding out
While you deliberate,
bodies accumulate

Sit and talk like Jesus
Try walking like Jesus
Sit and talk like Jesus
Talk like Jesus
Talk, talk, talk, talk
Get the fuck out of my way!

Don't be the problem, be the solution
Don't be the problem, be the solution
Don't be the problem, be the solution
Problem, problem, problem, problem

Faith without works is
Talk without works is
Faith without works is
Dead, dead, dead, dead

Sit and talk like Jesus
Try walking like Jesus
Sit and talk like Jesus
Try walking like Jesus

Try braving the rain
Try lifting the stone
Try extending a hand
Try walking your talk, or
get the fuck out of my way!

Are you listening, Mr. President? :rolleyes:

"So Long, And Thanks For All the Fish" by A Perfect Circle (https://youtu.be/HhbQ7AhwFdU)

Time is money and money is time
We wasted every second dime
On diets, lawyers, shrinks, and apps,
and flags, and plastic surgery
Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom,
Ali and Leia have moved on
Signal the final curtain call
in all this atomic pageantry

Bravissimo, hip-hip hooray
For this fireworks display
Mind and body blown away
What a radiant crescendo

Ticker tape parade
Our hair and skin like
Marilyn Monroe
in an afterwind

Time is money and money is time
We wasted every second dime
On politicians, fancy water
and guns, and plastic surgery
Like old Prince and Renie's mom,
all the dolphins have moved on
Signaling the final curtain call
in all this atomic pageantry

Bravissimo, hip-hip hooray
What a glorious display
Melt our joyous hearts away
Under the mushroom cloud confetti

Hip-hip hooray
For this fireworks display
Mind and body blown away
What a radiant crescendo

Hip-hip hooray
Hip-hip hooray

Ticker tape parade
Our hair and skin like
Marilyn Monroe
in an afterwind

Time is money and money is time
We wasted every second dime
On diets, lawyers, shrinks, and apps
and flags, and plastic surgery
Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom
Ali and Leia have moved on
Signal the final curtain call
in all this atomic pageantry

"The Void" by Parkway Drive (https://youtu.be/_AkHvqA4L_4)

Nothing can save us, nothing between
Infinite madness and the spiral of humanity
Nothing controls us, nothing breeds
The void awakens in the quickening of atrophy

Answer no master, never the slave
Carry your dreams down into the grave
Every heart, like every soul
Equal to break

It's alive
Can you feel it taking hold again?
In your mind
All your demons are rattling chains
Welcome to a world of pain!

Nothing kills us, nothing seethes
Extinction riding on the pale horse of destiny
Nothing hates us, nothing can see
Through our eyes it dives into our minds and sows its disease

Answer no master, never the slave
Carry your dreams down into the grave
Every heart, like every soul
Equal to break

It's alive
Can you feel it taking hold again?
In your mind
All your demons are rattling chains
Welcome to a world of pain!

(It's alive, can you feel it)

It's alive
Can you feel it taking hold again?
In your mind
All your demons are rattling chains
It's alive
Can you feel it?
In your mind
All your demons are rattling chains
Welcome to a world
Welcome to a world of pain!

"Absolute Power" by Parkway Drive (https://youtu.be/JVfTjBYoCVk)

Your heart, your home, your voice, it's got a price tag
Sign in blood, bury your rights in a body bag
They're feeding fear through the fault lines
You heard it here first, they got your freedoms on the front line
Prime time, the noose at our throats
Our liberties hands run with the blood of the scapegoats
So tell me, how can we demonize
when we can't see life through another's eyes?

Pay 'em off and play 'em off
Fear rolls like a reaper through the streets of the lost
Pay 'em off and play 'em off
But in the eyes of the storm

The truth drops like a bomb!
The truth drops like a bomb!
The battle is on

Hands in chains for a fist full of dollars
Who do we blame for the holes in our knowledge?
The past you know has been written by the victor
So I ask you now, who is it writing your future?
The butcher, the liar, the thief or the killer?
Your freedom died quiet in the halls of power
Starved for peace, we'll eat war until it kills us
Six feet deep with a belly full of bullets!

Pay 'em off and play 'em off
Fear rolls like a reaper through the streets of the lost
Pay 'em off and play 'em off
But in the eyes of the storm

The truth drops like a bomb!
The truth drops like a bomb!
The battle is on

The hate runs deep, but our hopes cut deeper
Now we walk through the valley in the shadow of the reaper
Money talks, and it's speaking in tongues
They put a price on our soul, like they had already won
Now open wide
I see their jaws locked tight
Silent in the moment, like prey in the floodlights
The signal is static, baptised in fire
Now we see how they talk
With a mouth full of barbed wire

Absolute power
Absolute power
Absolute power
Absolute power corrupts absolutely!
Absolute power
Absolute power
Absolute power
Absolute power corrupts

The truth drops like a bomb!
The truth drops like a bomb!
The battle is on

The truth drops like a...

Absolute power corrupts absolutely!

"Uninvited Guest" by Disturbed (https://youtu.be/WcjJbJb2r5c)
Thought I was rid of you
Thought it was over with
Thought I was over it
Thought I evicted you from my heart
Kicked you out of my mind
So nothing left of you
Wouldn't be left behind

Ooh, but you still take up all my space
You just won't go away

You stay in my head
Like an uninvited guest,
uninvited guest
You still haunt my heart
Guess you haven't left it yet,
haven't left it yet
Ooh, like an uninvited guest

Still see you everywhere
You're still in every room
Feel you with every move
I can't go on without
erasing you from my heart
Tired of feeling this pain
Seems you're the only ghost
I just can't chase away

Ooh, you still inhabit every thought
I prayed that you'd be gone

You stay in my head
Like an uninvited guest,
an uninvited guest
You still haunt my heart
Seems you haven't left it yet,
haven't left it yet

I, I don't want to feel you around!
I just want you, want you out
So please, go, please!

You stay in my head
Like an uninvited guest,
an uninvited guest
You still haunt my heart
Guess you haven't left it yet,
haven't left me yet

You stay in my head
Like an uninvited guest,
uninvited guest
You still haunt my heart
like an uninvited guest

"Watch You Burn" by Disturbed (https://youtu.be/mxpV0WkPSqI)
I didn't mean to give my soul away
To have the life I thought that everybody wants
And I need to let you know I was wrong
It's a sham
They stole my heart and took control away
And when I lost the life that everybody wants
Well, you'd think they'd help you out
But they don't give a damn

They lift you up (You might feel it, but don't believe it)
You take your turn (You'll see it, when you achieve it)
They light that spark (You can't fight it)
Then sit back and watch you burn
They lift you up (You might feel it, but don't believe it)
Give you your turn (You'll see it, when you achieve it)
When your world goes dark (You can't hide it)
They'll just smile and watch you burn

You can't believe a single word they say
You tried to have the life that everybody wants
Pretty soon you'll figure out that you don't
It's a scam
You're torn apart, and then you're thrown away
And you become the one that everybody taunts
By then there's no way out
It's all part of the plan

They lift you up (You might feel it, but don't believe it)
You take your turn (You'll see it, when you achieve it)
They light that spark (You can't fight it)
Then sit back and watch you burn
They lift you up (You might feel it, but don't believe it)
Give you your turn (You'll see it, when you achieve it)
When your world goes dark (You can't hide it)
They'll just smile and watch you burn

They lift you up
You take your turn (You'll see it, when you achieve it)
They light that spark (You can't fight it)
Then sit back and watch you burn
They lift you up (You might feel it, but don't believe it)
Give you your turn (You'll see it, when you achieve it)
When your world goes dark (You can't hide it)
They'll just smile and watch you burn
