Kings Of Speed

Original and similar lyrics
Please don’t come any closer to me, I feel old like a withered tree, these days are passing eternally, you won’t ask me to slow it down, blurred emotions in the crown of the kings of speed, and all we see in full motion collection. Time isn’t slowing, just speed, just speed. Silence is golden and seems so pretend, the towering of war machines and men, the falling of lives as we wait in line, we are fading to nothing, losing the race as they steam ahead, leaving the trail of the living dead, moving away, broken frames push forward then play. Time isn’t slowing, just speed, it’s all we’re knowing. Silence is golden and seems so pretend, the towering of war machines and men, the falling of lives as we wait in line, we are fading to nothing, losing the race as they steam ahead, leaving the trail of the living dead, moving away, broken frames push forward then play. Time isn’t slowing, just speed, it’s all we’re knowing.

The Harbor Is Yours

AESOP ROCK "None Shall Pass"
[Hook - Rob Sonic:] Dead men tell no tales (Uh-huh) Up push the daisies till the soil is stale In a powder blue tux for the farmer's sale (Here we go) Mr. Big sleep with the carp and kelp [Aesop Rock:] Once upon a time in the days of yore When the people lived fresh outta legend and folklore There was an old pirate who piloted vile slang Had a bird perched on him and swash buckled the same Peg leg navigate him starboard to port By the nautical starry night yelling "The harbor is yours!" And you should tell them where you situate the gold That is unless you'd like a vacation with Davy J-J-J-Jones Like "walk the plank" for whom the shark thank Maroon the mutineers consume the souvenirs And while the shiny spoils piled higher every year He was suffocating slow in the box of a buccaneer Ten summers prior on a night like this Crows nest scopes something afloat to the boats west Swore it blew him a kiss When he focus seen the face of an angel upon the body of a F-f-f-fish "What the heck!" frazzled, his telescope shattered Gathered himself she was ghost he was down the rope ladder To deck circled the vessel 360 swiftly Found nothing in the water but salt, piss and whiskey Yarr, heckled by the swabbies at the bar He'll be the laughing stock of the Barbary Coast War Like this dude either got two glass eyes Or he wearing his patch on the wrong s-s-s-side Now he knew what he saw But had to prove he was raw So he raped and he pillaged and And he feud and he brawled Try to rekindle his rep via sabers and gun smoke And vowed to always find her though he never told his cutthroats Meanwhile, back in the now, got a brand new skeleton crew On the move out when they aren't manning thirty burning cannons stern and bow They are prying shiny metals out your m-m-m-mouth Okay, youth wanes old age holler wisdom and disease Like the scurvy made his yellow gums bleed And he was achy from his boots to the feather in his hat Until his quartermaster showed up with a stolen treasure map One look down and lept off the dock See if you can guess where X marked the spot The capital was buried at sea in a cursed cave Only one mile from where he'd seen the mer-mer-mer-maid Anchors up, hoist the jolly roger thank you much Day and night with his hook hands raised and clutched But see the vitamin deficiency was strong So by the time they bumped into the island he could barely lift his grog Crawled off the boat, collapsed in the sand Prayers in the air, seashells in his hand And nary a high tide so grand as the one that put The lady of the lake on dry la-la-la-land I wish I could tell you that it ended happy Pretend like his bones weren't practically snapping Pretend like her gills didn't dry up and suffer But that's a half-dead pirate and a fish outta water No lie, scout's honor, got a million more From the burgundy lighting above the shores of whores Before your visions of grandeur go to swell those sails Remember dead men tell no t-t-t-tales [Hook - Rob Sonic:] Dead men tell no tales Up push the daisies till the soil is stale In a powder blue tux for the farmer's sale Mr. Big sleep with the carp and kelp

Almost There

AB-SOUL "Longterm Mentality"
[Verse 1: Ab-Soul] I know exactly how it is to feel like no one cares About the hard work you put in but who said life was fair? It sure wasn't me I take the bitter with the sweet And boil it in the pot make it hard to eat I said If I'm going to play I'm going to play for keeps Raise stakes, take stage, speak my peace Make my pay, take my lady on a date Send my parents on a cruise - living Somewhere with a killer view Oh the irony I spew But for now the studio couches gonna have to do I ain't going to take what I ain't earned myself Foolish pride That's what you need to survive It's do or die So step aside I don't mean no trouble Just want to be someone that CJ could look up to Oh, and just so you know When I'm on the road I'm at the travel lodge not the W [Hook: Ab-Soul & BJ the Chicago Kid] Almost there, almost there, almost there The finish line is in sight but I'm almost there Almost there, almost there Almost there, almost there, almost there Even if the sun don't shine the sun don't shine Almost [Verse 2: Ab-Soul] Somebody asked me, what you mean by longterm mentality, actually? So I had to break it down: Don't get caught up in the now Focus on the years abroad Cause today you're here but tomorrow you could be gone Singing the same old song And who's the place to blame on? Other than you Whatever it is you do From slanging eight balls to graduating from school Just gotta see it all before it happens I ain't saying see a psychic I'm just saying have a Idea of what you're accomplishing You'll have a greater chance to accomplish it You know a little strategy, premeditation Wins races nine times out of ten As if losing's ever an option Had to bust my own bubble I really thought I was poppin' (Not quite) [Hook] [Verse 3: Ab-Soul] Just know your future's right around the corner Opportunity galore for ya More and more you'll start to see it's no limit to what you can be In any event, eventually Treat your first like your last time Cause it might be your last time That's what I learned last time Look forward to looking forward in my pastime You just letting time pass like "that's fine", as wine Contrary to popular belief, I want the peace They say I'm headed hellbound at God's speed Gazunteight, or bless me if you like As I, put my faith in this bud and budlight I've been patiently waiting for a track to explode on Talk my shit, drop my load on Hold on, I don't think you know how close I am By the time this song's done I'm already there

I'm Falling

AL STEWART "Orange"
It's Sunday afternoon and it's raining, I m falling Colour sections, pastel blue, an empty church, a movie queue And I'm falling Watching you moving around Taking the time To get a proper look It seems as though I've never really looked at you Get up, put the kettle on, make us some tea I'm falling If we've got some biscuits left, please bring one for me, I'm just falling Spending the whole day in bed Wasting our time In such a gentle way We hardly need to say a word, it's just okay And already the sun has gone, and it's growing dark outside, I can see your face reflected in the red electric firelight, And our shadow is an embryo That slowly comes to life And as it moves across the wall It seems to feel the fire of living Growing stronger as it climbs To shiver in a blaze Across the ceiling And the soundless crash of the sea Fills the room with the scent of the breeze And the waves break over The beach of our bodies As you reach your fingers out to me Why don't we take the whole of next week off work, We're falling You can say you don't feel well, you caught a cold or something, We're just falling We can get out of town Taking the time To let it all work out The hour glass is turning, every second counts I'm falling I'm falling I'm falling Moving around inside a dream today Falling for you in such a special way

Torpedoes

MDFMK
There goes the neighborhood And somehow you knew it would 'Cuz you understand Armageddon's right around the bend You got your fortune Right in your hands You do what you gotta do 'Cuz you got a climb an attitude And you say goodbye As easy as most people tell a lie You choose no options you do or die Goddamn The torpedoes it's time to run away with the sideshow Full speed Right ahead Don't stop You can sleep when you're dead That's just the way it goes That's how the river flows If you stay stone cold Chance are your option will unfold All that glitters Turns into gold Goddamn The torpedoes It's time to run away with the sideshow Full speed Right ahead Don't stop You can sleep when you're dead Be proud to deviate This time to instigate Dictate your own fate Your about to detonate See the world obliterate Goddamn The torpedoes It's time to run away with the sideshow Full speed Right ahead Don't stop You can sleep when you're dead Goddamn The torpedoes Dictate your own fate You're about to detonate See the world obliterate Goddamn The torpedoes Dictate your own fate You're about to goddamn detonate

Falling Forward

Julia Fordham "Falling Forward"
(written by Julia Fordham/John Watkin) I've been living on wishes, living on wishes all my life And I wish I could make one To make everything in your world right I'm falling forward while you wait behind Lost for your reasons and missing your time And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you (falling forward) And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you And I'm only an hour, not even an hour away But you're keeping your distance We're more than a million miles apart these days I'm falling forward while you wait behind Lost for your reasons and missing your time And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you (falling forward) And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you (falling forward) And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you (falling forward) And suddenly I'm the villain of the piece You're lying awake, wondering how I sleep I'm falling forward while you wait behind Lost for your reasons and missing your time And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you (falling forward) And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you (falling forward) And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm Wishing for you (falling forward) And I, I, I'm, I, I, I'm
