Flicking and twisting There's a flash in the sky Falling and drifting There's a hole in my eye I've not been feeling stable It's too hard to try I'm here and I'm waiting To say goodbye Switching and surfing The transmission's black I've lost everything And I can't get it back This corrupt programme Has made me a slave Now I feel remote I'm interference on the T.V. But nothing here's gonna free me I'm screaming somebody help me Try to break out and run for the land Look out for yourself this place is a selfish man Try to break out and run for the land Look out for yourself this place is a selfish man Try to break out Try to break out Try to break out Try to break out Try to break out Try to break out Try to break out Try to break out It's so cold Like interference on a T.V. It's so cold Like interference on a T.V.

Silver

MACHINE HEAD "Burning Red"
Yes i hold some keys of gold With cigarettes and silver bullets Angels cry and devils lie The world is our stage Look inside and try and find The part of me that's whole I wish I knew But I got threw behind Take my hand Across this land Escape this, all the hell inside Create this man To make my stand And break this hardened shell in time I see a mirror to me The lines along my face are drawn in I believe reflections bleed The sorrows of our souls Let me know the hurt that shows and wish it all away Cause now you'll see Why the pain and me Collide Take my hand Across this land Escape this, all the hell inside Create this man To make my stand And break this hardened shell in time I see the walls around me Fall around me And everything is alright I see the god among me Fall among me And everything beside I see those walls surround you Tie and bound you You'll drown cause you're so Cold Cold Cold Cold Take my hand Across this land Escape this, all the hell inside Create this man To make my stand And break this hardened shell in time Take my hand Across this land And break this hardened shell in ... Hardened shell in ... Hardened shell in ... Hardened shell in time

This Place

JONI MITCHELL "Shine"
Sparkle on the ocean Eagle at the top of a tree Those crazy crows always making a commotion This land is home to me. I was talking to my neighbor He said, "When I get to heaven, if it is not like this, I'll just hop a cloud and I'm coming right back down here Back to this heavenly bliss." You see those lovely hills They won't be there for long They're gonna tear 'em down And sell them to California Here come the toxic spills Miners poking all around When this place looks like a moonscape Don't say I didn't warn ya... Money, money, money... Money makes the trees come down It makes mountains into molehills Big money kicks the wide wide world around. Black bear in the orchard At night he's in my garbage cans He's getting so bold but no one wants to shoot him He's got a right to roam this land. I feel like Geronimo I used to be as trusting as Cochise But the white eyes lies He's out of whack with nature And look how far his weapons reach! Spirit of the water Give us all the courage and the grace To make genius of this tragedy unfolding The genius to save this place.

Same Cry

JIN "The Rest Is History"
We May Look Different But We See The Same Sky We may see different But we cry the same cry To wake up daily, And sleep better nights, Thats what we all wish for to seek a better life, right? It's unfortunate, when tragedys strike, But the truth is reality bites, June 4th 89, a day residents fear Now known as The Massacre At Tiananmen Square The day I turned seven they were mourning and grieving Thousands of innocents die for what they believed in Come with nothing but heart and a point to prove Stood infront of tanks and refused to move What Would You Do? Run or stand still whens your lifes on the line To test a mans will Seeking change and they found but in death Strangers yet they were my blood and flesh This happened in China, But you ain't gotta be asian to relate To the struggle, pain and hard aches [Chorus:] You'll never know, You'll never get it, There is no choice, We can't forget it We look up We see the same sky We look up We cry the very same cry See, I'm a grown man It hurts when I turn on the news And see thats going on in my homeland This SARS epidemic, could've been lives Could've stand for Should Asians Really Survive They'll try anything to break your family apart Politics could break down the manliest heart Can the child within my heart rise above If theres a billion of us I shouldn't have to look for love Overpopulation, but damn just to meet the needs Its illegal to have more than one seed How can you dictate birth regardless the women And the parents they make the hardest decisions Sons keep their family names so thats not an option Imagine having to put your daughter up for adoption And even though its beyond your control Keep your head up heres a sond for your soul [Chorus] If you don't know where you came from You can't get the way your trying to go Theres ain't denying so, its true I got some big shoes to fill But If I don't lead the movement, then who will Stuck between a rock and a hard place Thinking about the refugees that went to see god's place 16,000 miles across the ocean tides Some died, some got lucky and survived I wouldn't call it luck, they reached their destination Modern day slavery without the plantation Them sneakers on your feet cost $100 a pop My peoples making 15 cents a day in sweatshops To make them kicks, so you can look good. Think we open restaurants cause we cook good? Hell No, we ain't got no choice I gotta speak up, without me my people have no voice [Chorus x2]

This House

ALISON MOYET "Hoodoo"
Whose sticky hands are these And what is this empty place I could be happily lost But for your face Here stands an empty house That used to be full of life Now it's home for no one And his wife It's a hovel and (Who) Who can take your place I can't face another day And (Who) Who will shelter me It's cold in here Cover me Under these fingertips A strange body rolls and dips I close my eyes And you're here again Later as day descends I'll shout from my window To anyone listening I'm losing (Who) Who can take your place I can't face another day And (Who) Who will shelter me It's cold in here Cover me Oh, in a plague of hateful questioning Tap dancing every syllable from ear to ear I hear the din of lovers jousting When I'm hiding with my head to the wall So (Who) Who will shelter me It's cold in here.

Flashflood

AESOP ROCK "Labor Days"
We'll have more news after this commercial word (As so it goes..) At least I think I was here asleep... Is it possible, conceiveable that I sleepwalked out of my apartment And went berzerk? [Aesop Rock] In slipped rhythm Fed a cycle bound by dilemma-debting vendetta Escaped briefly back to my apartment Parked in front the fan And reminesce about the day I ran a mile with your heart in my hand 'Tesants get the New York home game With real life shoot-em-up action Thug, vagrant, yuppie, and art Free game piece all included I told this cat the earth was flat He walked till his beard grew long enough to strangle himself for being stupid Brick-a-back novelty Spliced with that sixth pack odyssey Godspeed Tequilla worm future, be concerned My feelings spread across the land reporting avalanche sightings While my introverted side is flying cadavers on kite strings I'ma never give, I'm juiced off ejection I'm stubborn as a thousand born agains avoiding questions From the alpha to the sand I bake the date up for my pledge To 'bay the traitor in the twice-forgotten favors that he bled Not a creature stirred, it reaks of subway metal Feather lecture journalist chin on fish shenanigans Recording mayhem with voices Benefit to break room Mummified manequins with future cleanse adamant And skeleton in cabinet This a Malcom circus, got a ring of fire Just big enough to shove my purpose in a circle I'm known to dip dusk in a broken city curfew Release the hounds and see which one can tractor trail and serve you SUCKA! I lay the Lord down upon its belly With my foot dug in between the third and fourth disk Yelling 'Break yo'self!' I'm the actualized data commission past penny tip jar donation Been arranged, made by the farfetch from stability Took a heart pledge early on Bled onto the drum doser Plow in the metronome, home Lone caddy corner to cock-eyed sound booster Sensation'll leave siesomgraph stabbin away on stone tablets To sketch up out your future I drifted out the main spelunking unit with watered down sand But have canceled developed, courtesy America Land of the free base Home of the triplicate grill character My sorta sideways tilt called pinball blinker It citizens wander through ex-warrants steady bleed With dilapadated winter jacket I rock a crooked lid piece A sweat a bit to make my Wookie ends meet Pascifist willing to step into a friend's beef if needed Wing clipper, I hierarch compassionate Where they whine on some 'Daddy's gonna kill Ralphy' shit Sucked the proverbial silver spoon to the parents quit apparently Parasol spinnin casually like 'I'm an artist, please don't laugh at me' Ok, time to buckle the fuck down Side of the wobbly system back to original form, pumpkin You can catch the memoir in several dimensions The joy of life logic, don't employ the spite process Hence, your plight botches I don't know what got into me I didn't even cause all that destruction I'm sorry...so sorry [Chorus] 4x This be the big F-L-A-S-H-F-L-O-O-D, Flashflood Possible Conceivable Possible Conceivable Possible Conceivable Possible Conceivable Possible Conceivable Possible Conceivable That I sleepwalked out of my apartment and went berzerk?
