i give that one a 6... i just haven't heard the rest of that song yet so i guess that line doesn't mean much

yoko kanno- gotta knock a little harder

Always keepin' safe inside
Where no one ever had a chance
To penetrate a break in

Let me tell you some have tried
But I would slam the door so tight
That they could never get in

Kept my cool under lock and key
And I never shed a tear
Another sign of my condidtion

Fear of love or bitter vanity
That kept me on the run
The main events at my confession

I kept a chain upon my door
That would shake the shame of Cain
Into a blind submission

..............(chorus and middle of the song)


Suddenly it occurred to me
The reason for the run and hide
Had totaled my existnce

Everything on the other side
Could never be much worse that this
But could I go the distance

I faced the door and all my shame
Tearin' off each piece of chain
Until they all were broken

But no matter how I tried
The other side was locked so tight
That door it wouldn't open

Gave it all that I got
And started to knock
Shouted for someone
To open the lock
I just gotta get through the door

i admit this is more than half the song, but the lines here tell you everything...

Adam's song=11billion

Mine is...
I swear that I can go on forever again
Please let me know that my one bad day will end
I will go down as your lover, your friend
Give me your lips and with one kiss we begin
Are you afraid of being alone
Cause I am, I'm lost without you
Are you afraid of leaving tonight
Cause I am, I'm lost without you

I'll leave my room open till sunrise for you
I'll keep my eyes patiently focused on you
Where are you now I can hear footsteps I'm dreaming
And if you will, keep me from waking to believe this

Are you afraid of being alone
Cause I am, I'm lost without you
Are you afraid of leaving tonight
Cause I am, I'm lost without you

Are you afraid of being alone
Cause I am, I'm lost without you
Are you afraid of leaving tonight
Cause I am, I'm lost without you
Are you afraid of being alone
Cause I am, I'm lost without you
Are you afraid of leaving tonight
Cause I am, I'm lost without you

I'm lost without you
I'm lost without you
-I'm Lost Without You by Blink 182

or

This vacation's useless
These white pills aren’t kind
I've given a lot of thought on this 13-hour drive
I missed the grinded concrete where we sat past 8 or 9
and slowly finished laughing in the glow of our headlights
I've given a lot of thought to the nights we used to have
The days have come and gone
Our lives went by so fast
I faintly remember breathing on your bedroom floor
Where I laid and told you but you swear you loved me more

Do you care if I don't know what to say?
Will you sleep tonight will you think of me?
Will I shake this off...pretend its all okay?
That there's someone out there who feels just like me
There is

Those notes you wrote me
I've kept them all
I've given a lot of thought of how to write you back this fall
With every single letter in every single word
There will be a hidden message
About a boy that loves a girl

Do you care if I don't know what to say?
Will you sleep tonight will you think of me?
Will I shake this off...pretend its all okay?
That there's someone out there who feels just like me
There is

Do you care if I don't know what to say?
Will you sleep tonight will you think of me?
Will I shake this off...pretend its all okay?
That there's someone out there who feels just like me

Do you care if I don't know what to say?
Will you sleep tonight will you think of me?
Will I shake this off...pretend its all okay?
That there's someone out there who feels just like me
There is

I vote 7.


This doubt is screaming in my face
In this familiar place
Sheltered and concealed
And if this night won’t let me rest
Don’t let me second guess
What I know to be real
Put away all I know for tonight
And maybe I just might
Learn to let it go
Take my security from me
And maybe finally
I won’t have to know everything

They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What’s the point in all this screaming
No one’s listening anyway

Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
’cause she’s got nowhere to go

And she wonders where these dreams go
’cause the world got in her way
What’s the point ever trying
Nothing’s changing anyway

They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But you’re falling anyway

And you know I see right through you
When the world gets in your way
What’s the point in all the screaming
You’re not listening anyway


-----Or, to go classically great---

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 isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

6 for all of those...

There was a man who had a face
that looked alot like me
I saw him in the mirror and
I fought him in the street
And when he turned away
I shot him in the head
then I came to realize
I had killed myself

eh.. 6


i got my head but my head is unraveling
can't keep control can't keep track of where it's traveling
i got my heart but my heart's no good
and you're the only one that's understood

i come along but i don't know where you're taking me
i shouldn't go but you're wrenching dragging shaking me
turn off the sun pull the stars from the sky
the more i give to you the more i die

and i want you
and i want you
and i want you
and i want you

you are the perfect drug
the perfect drug
the perfect drug
you are the perfect drug
the perfect drug
the perfect drug

you make me hard when i'm all soft inside
i see the truth when i'm all stupid-eyed
the arrow goes straight through my heart
without you everything just falls apart

my blood wants to say hello to you
my fears want to get inside of you
my soul is so afraid to realize
how very little good is left of me

3456/10 for that one. I love NIN, and that song is one of my favorites.

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind

Everything about you pains my envying
Your soul can't hate anything
Everything about you is so easy to love
They're watching you from above

Muse-Bliss
Not my favorite, but I didnt want to post NIN lyrics, and as of lately, I like this song alot.
 
Madness said:
Damnit, double post.
Sorry.
For those -100 billion
For the Muse lyrics a 5


Oh no it happened again
She's cool she's hot she's my friend
I'd drive for hours it's so
you leave me nowhere to go

She's unstoppable,
unpredictable
I'm so jaded,
calculated
wrong

Please take, me home
Too late, it's gone
I bet, you're sad
This is the best time we ever had

I hope, hope that it last
Give in forget the past
Be strong when things fall apart
Honest, this breaks my heart

She's unstoppable,
unpredictable
I'm so jaded,
calculated
wrong

Please take, me home
Too late, it's gone
I bet, you're sad
This is the best time we ever had

Please take, me home
Too late, it's gone
I bet, you're sad
This is the best time we ever had

Why did we have to go date?
Its too easy to complicate
Be strong when things fall apart
[be strong when thing fall apart]
Honest,this breaks my heart
[its so hard]

Please take, me home
Too late, it's gone
I bet, you're sad
This is the best time we ever had

Please take, me home
Too late, it's gone
I bet, you're sad
This is the best time we ever had


I never thought I'd,
I'd die alone
I laughed the loudest, who'd have known?
I traced the cord back to the wall
No wonder it was never plugged in at all

I took my time,
I hurried up
The choice was mine, I didn't think enough
I'm too depressed, To go on
You'll be sorry when I'm gone

I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside
The world was wide, too late to try
The tour was over, we'd survived
I couldn't wait till I got home
To pass the time in my room alone

I never thought I'd die alone
Another six months I'll be unknown
Give all my things to all my friends
You'll never step foot in my room again

You'll close it off,You'll board it up
Remember the time that I spilled the cup
Of apple juice in the hall
Please tell mom this is not her fault

I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside
The world was wide, too late to try
The tour was over, we'd survived
I couldn't wait till I got home
To pass the time in my room alone

I never conquered, rarely came
Tomorrow holds such better days
Days when I can still feel alive
When I cant wait to get outside
The world is wide, the time goes by
The tour is over, I survived
I can't wait till I get home
To pass the time in my room alone

I'm not sure if Adam's song is right....did it from memory.

The Disturbed Voices

So, are you breathing

Wake up, are you alive
Will you listen to me
I'm gonna talk about some freaky **** now
Someone is gonna die
When you listen to me
Let the living die, Let the living die
(say)

Are you breathing now
Do the wicked see you
You still breathing
You're making me known

What's up, I wonder why
Do you listen to me
I'm gonna make you do some freaky **** now
Insane, you're gonna die
When you listen to me
Let the living die, Let the living die
(say)

I can hear the voice
But I don't want to listen
Strap me down and tell me
I'll be alright

I can feel the subliminal need
To be one with the voice
And make everything alright

So, are you breathing?

Can't you imagine how good going through this will make you feel
I promise, no one will ever know
There will be no chance of you getting caught
They never loved you anyway
So come on, be a man
And do what you are compelled to do



NIN:Head like a hole


god money i'll do anything for you
god money just tell me what you want me to
god money nail me up against the wall
god money don't want everything he wants it all

no you can't take it
no you can't take it
no you can't take that away from me
no you can't take it
no you can't take it
no you can't take that away from me

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control
head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve
bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve

god money's not looking for the cure
god money's not concerned about the sick among the pure
god money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised
god money's not one to choose


Rammstein:Zwitter

Ich hab ihr einen Kuss gestohlen
sie wollte sich ihn wiederholen
ich hab sie nicht mehr losgelassen
verschmolzen so zu einer Masse
so ist es mir nur allzurecht
ich bin ein schones Zweigeschlecht
zwei Seelen unter meiner Brust
zwei Geschlechter eine Lust

Zwitter

Ich gehe anders durch den Tag
ich bin der schonste Mensch von allen
ich sehe wunderbare Dinge
die sind mir vorher gar nicht aufgefallen
ich kann mich jeden Tag beglucken
ich kann mir selber Rosen schicken
da ist kein zweiter und kein dritter
eins und eins das ist gleich

Zwitter
ich bin so verliebt
Zwitter
Iich bin in mich verliebt

Eins fur mich eins fur dich
gibt es nicht fur mich
eins fur mich eins fur dich
eins und eins das bin ich

Ich bin alleine doch nicht allein
ich kann mit mir zusammen sein
ich kusse fruh mein Spiegelbild
und schlafe abends mit mir ein
wenn die anderen Madchen suchten
konnt ich mich schon selbst befruchten
so bin ich dann auch nicht verzagt
wenn einer zu mir "Fick dich" sagt

Zwitter
ich bin so verliebt
Zwitter
Iich bin in mich verliebt

Eins fur mich eins fur dich
gibt es nicht fur mich
eins fur mich eins fur dich
eins und eins das bin ich

Dashboard Confessionasl - The Brilliant Dance

The Brilliant Dance

So this is odd, the painful realization that has all gone wrong.
And nobody cares at all, and nobody cares at all.

So you buried all your lover's clothes
and burned the letters lover wrote,
but it doesn't make it any better.
Does it make it any better?
And the plaster dented from your fist
in the hall where you had your first kiss
reminds you that the memories will fade.

So this is strange,
our sidestepping has come to be a brilliant dance
where nobody leads at all,
where nobody leads at all.

And the picture frames are facing down
and the ringing from this empty sound
is deafening and keeping you from sleep.
And breathing is a foreign task
and thinking's just too much to ask
and you're measuring your minutes by a clock that's blinking eights.

This is incredible. Starving, insatiable,
yes, this is love for the first time.
Well you'd like to think that you were invincible.
Yeah, well weren't we all once before we felt loss for the first time?
Well this is the last time.

Just remember... DC > You!

I saw a star beneath the stairs glowing through the melting walls. Who will be the first to begin their fall? Or will we become one? Am I the star beneath the stairs? Am I a ghost upon the stage? Am I your anything? I saw a star beneath the stairs glowing bright before descent and in the morning there is nothing left but what's inside of me. And I don't want to die tonight; will you believe in me? And I don't want to fall into the light. Will you wish upon? Will you walk upon me? I don't want to die tonight. Will you.

Hi
I'm your video DJ
I always talk like I'm wigged out on quaaludes
I wear a satin baseball jacket everywhere I go

My job is to help destroy
What's left of your imagination
By feeding you endless doses
Of sugar-coated mindless garbage

So don't create
Be sedate
Be a vegetable at home
And thwack on that dial
If we have our way even you will believe
This is the future of rock and roll

How far will you go
How low will you stoop
To tranquilize our minds with your sugar-coated swill

You've turned rock and roll rebellion
Into Pat Boone sedation
Making sure nothing's left to the imagination

M.T.V. Get off the
M.T.V. Get off the
M.T.V. Get off the air
Get off the air

See the latest rejects from the muppet show
Wag their tits and their *****
As they lip-synch on screen
There's something I don't like
About a band who always smiles
Another tax write-off
For some schmuck who doesn't care

M.T.V. Get off the air
And so it was
Our beloved corporate gods
Claimed they created rock video
Allowing it to sink as low in one year
As commercial TV has in 25
"It's the new frontier," they say
It's wide open, anything can happen
But you've got a lot of nerve
To call yourself a pioneer
When you're too god-damn conservative
To take real chances.

Tin-eared
Graph-paper brained accountants
Instead of music fans
Call all the shots at giant record companies now

The lowest common denominator rules
Forget honesty
Forget creativity
The dumbest buy the mostest
That's the name of the game

But sales are slumping
And no one will say why
Could it be they put out one too many lousy records?!?

M.T.V.—Get off the air!

Let's admire the pattern forming. Murderous filigree. I'm caught in the twisting of the vine. Go ascend with ivy, climbing. Ignore and leave for me the headstone crumbling behind. I can't help my laughter as she cries. My soul brings tears to angelic eyes. Let's amend the classic story, close it so beautifully, I'll let animosity unwind. Steal away the darkened pages, hidden so shamefully. I'll still feel the violence of the lines.

9 for the AFI lyrics :xparty:

You remember when the ship went down
You left me on the deck
The captain's corpse jumped up
And threw his arms around my neck
For all these years I've had him on my back
This debt cannot be paid with all your jack

Did you keep a watch for the dead man's wind
Did you see the woman with the comb in her hand
Wailing away on the wall on the strand
As you danced to the Turkish song of the damned
