When The Battle Is Over

One more time you hurt me You thought you you had your victory One more reason For you to worry Cause you got the best of me You should never count your chickens Before you eggs get hatched I believe it, mm, To my soul You finally met your match Tell me now When this battle is over Who will wear the crown When this battle is over Who will wear the crown Who it will be Who it will be Will it be you Will it be me Tell me now – Who will wear the crown yeah yeah Ever time I kiss ya I feel I get the upper hand I want you ooo to surrender And tell me ya gon' be my man A slip of the lip has been known to sink a ship And I believe I believe I believe to my soul I finally got a winner's slip When this battle is over, I wonder Who will wear the crown When this battle is over Who will wear the crown Who it will be Who it will be Will it be you Will it be me Yeah, Tell me know – Who will wear the crown When this battle is over Who be wearin' this crown When this battle is over Oh when its over children When this battle is over Yeaaah when its over

The Big Battle

JOHNNY CASH "America: A 200-Year Salute In Story And Song"
I think sir the battle is over, and the young soldier lay down his gun. I'm tired of running for cover, I'm certain the battle is done. For see over there where we fought them, it's quiet for they've all gone away. All left is the dead and the dying, the blue lying long side the grave. So you think the battle is over, and you even lay down your gun. You carelessly rise from your cover, for you think the battle is done. Now boy hit the dirt, listen to me, for I'm still the one in command. Get flat on the ground here beside me, and lay your heart to the sand. Can you hear the deafening rumble, can you feel the trembling ground. It's not just the horses and wagons that make such a deafening sound. For every shot fired had an echo and every man killed wanted life. There lies your friend Jim McKinney, can you take the news to his wife? No son the battle's not over, the battle has only begun. The rest of the battle will cover the part that has blackened the sun. The fight yet to come is not with cannon, nor will the fight be hand-to-hand No one will regroup the forces, no charge will a general command. The battle will rage in the bosom of mother and sweetheart and wife. Brother and sister and daughter will grieve for the rest of their lives. Now go ahead, rise from your cover, be thankful that God let you live. Go fight the rest of the battle for those who gave all they could give. I see sir the battle's not over, the battle has only begun The rest of the battle will cover this part that has blackened the sun. For though there's no sound of the cannon and though there's no smoke in the sky. I'm dropping the gun and the saber and ready for battle am I.

Day Will Soon Come

ANJULIE "Anjulie"
Well, I don't know just how to tell you this in a telephone call from so far That I'm never coming back, say you don't understand One day you'll understand why I'm never coming back So mother, mother, please believe like I believed in you for everything I tried and tried again but I never could conceive What you wanted so, so badly Now I'm drowning in my dreams And I don't know just where I'm going but they They don't know me yet, the day will soon come They don't know my best, the day will soon come Sure as the sun has set the day will soon come Yeah the day, the day, the day will soon come And what I really want, what I really, really want Is what I haven't got yet that's what I really want Am I the only one? Don't everybody want To try to get, get, get what they've been dreaming of? Some people say I don't know my way I can't find my place and my dreams are much too big For the head they're in, when you gonna give it all up? Say I'm stranded in my own world, I'm going nowhere I thought you knew me better They don't know me yet, the day will soon come They don't know my best, the day will soon come Sure as the sun has set the day will soon come Yeah the day, the day, the day will soon come My baby is crying Said he can't compete with all the fire in my belly And the fire is rousing to the words I speak Barely express the thing I mean so deep Boy, I hear what you've been playing at your radio But I've been bumping something special through my head phones You can say I'm dumb, say what I'm doing is wrong Say it at the top of your lungs, baby don't you underestimate me They don't know me yet, the day will soon come They don't know me, they don't know my best, the day will soon come Sure as the sun has set the day will soon come Yeah the day, the day, the day will soon come The day, the day, the day, the day, the day The day, the day, the day will soon come I'm here in chains, I'm waiting, waiting Waiting, waiting, waiting, the day will soon come The day, the day, the day, the day, the day The day, the day, the day will soon come Yeah the day, the day, the day will soon come

On All Fours

JAY BRANNAN "Goddamned"
Three weeks and counting 'til he's on his way to France Not a dime in his pocket, but a ticket in his hand He's a cynical bastard, but there's hope in his eyes It's been a ling time comin', spent a long time runnin' from his insides He tries hard to songwrite his way out of bed But nothing tastes as clever as it sounds in his head He wants to get his teeth wet and sink his feet in He should have billions of dollars, cuz every asshole's put two cents in [CHORUS:] But he writes the songs snad he can say what he wants, yeah, He can be who he wants to And they say he's wrong, but they keep tagging along, yeah, They can leave if they want to And his way will never meet yours He's got the world on his back and watch him as he takes it on all fours 9 out of 10 motherfuckers agree that his fucking foul language is a fucking travesty but motherfucking fuck is just another fucking word the idea a word is dirty is to him fucking absurd [CHORUS] AND THIS WORLD WILL SOON BE THE DEATH OF HIM AND HIS VOICE WILL FADE AWAY AND HIS JEANS WILL BE ALL THAT IS LEFT OF HIM AND THEY'LL WONDER IF HE WAS OKAY AND THE ALKIES'LL SAY IT WAS DRINKIN' AND THE PREACHER WILL SAY IT WAS SIN AND HIS MOTHER WILL SAY HE WAS THINKIN' ONLY OF HIMSELF AGAIN AND THE GAYS WILL SAY IT WAS STRAIGHT PEOPLE AND THE STRAIGHTS WILL SAY IT WAS AIDS AND HE'LL BE IN LINE AT THE GATE PEOPLE STILL STANDING IN HIS WAY, IN HIS WAY [CHORUS]

Bottom Of The Floor

DISHWALLA "And You Think You Know What Life's About"
You're not the one to live for You're not the one to die for And you think you know what life's about But when the bottom of the floor starts falling out It's falling out Last night at the party, you let it out You never seem happy, it wears me out At something so stupid, you wear the crown And there will always be this thing you just can't live without So pull your head out Later at the party I was passing out You're something so filthy, it eats me out At needs never ending, you wear the crown And there will always be this thing you just can't live without So pull your head out

The Grudge

TOOL "Lateralus"
Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity. Calculate what we will or will not tolerate. Desperate to control all and everything. Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen. Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down. Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end. Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down. Terrified of being wrong. Ultimatum prison cell. Saturn ascends, choose one or ten. Hang on or be humbled again. Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down. Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end. Saturn ascends, comes round again. Saturn ascends, the one, the ten. Ignorant to the damage done. Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity. Calculate what we will or will not tolerate. Desperate to control all and everything. Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen. Wear your grudge like a crown. Desperate to control. Unable to forgive. And we're sinking deeper. Defining, confining, controlling, and we're sinking deeper. Saturn comes back around to show you everything Let's you choose what you will not see and then Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again Spits you out like a child, light and innocent. Saturn comes back around. Lifts you up like a child or Drags you down like a stone To consume you till you choose to let this go. Give away the stone. Let the oceans take and Transmutate this cold and fated anchor. Give away the stone. Let the waters kiss and Transmutate these leaden grudges into gold. Let go.
