AUDIOSLAVE lyrics - Revelations

Sound Of A Gun

Original and similar lyrics
In the here and the now I'll wait down among the young and the old With the moon and the ground I play with my children in my home This is for the daughters and sons of forgotten ones learning how to stand This is for the innocent unknowns buried in the sand All running from a sound of a gun Running from the sound of a gun 'til you're weary Running from the sound of a gun Running from the sound of a gun From the crack in the blackness I'll wake, it's getting closer every night In my city the playground is a battleground between the wrong and the right I could run free as a child I was safe and wild, naked, and unarmed Now I'm gone and safe in my home but some will never stop Running from the sound of a gun Running from the sound of a gun 'til they're weary Running from the sound of a gun Running from the sound of a gun The open mouth of the city swallowed up the town On that same old concrete that I still walk down And it seemed they put a shine on this place when I was young Well maybe I just don't see it now Running from the sound of a gun Running from the sound of a gun 'til I'm weary Running from the sound of a gun Running from the sound of a gun Hey! I'm running from the sound of a gun I'm running from the sound of a gun I'm running from the sound of a gun I'm running from, running from the sound of a gun

Sounds From The Street

THE JAM "In The City"
Sounds from the street, sounds so sweet What's my name? It hurts my brain to think Sounds from the city, sound so pretty Young bands playing Young kids digging - And I dig them The USA's got the sea Yeah, but the British kid's got the streets I don't mind, the city's right Sounds from the street, sounds just fine I know I come from Woking and you say I'm a fraud But my heart's in the city, where it belongs Words from the voices Rock and roll rejoices It's something new, it's something young for a change Sounds from the street, they sound so sweet They gotta take notice Why should they stop us? We don't need them We're never gonna change a thing And the situation's rapidly decreasing But what can I do? I'm trying to be true That's more than you, at least I'm doing something

If You Can Save Me Now

ATMOSPHERE "The Family Sign"
If you can save me now, Let's go someplace safe and sound. I'll try not to weigh you down, But I don't know if I can wait around. If you can save me now, Let's go someplace safe and sound... It happened fast, like a camera flash. The accident - then the aftermath. Not even sure what caused the crash. If I had the strength, I would probably laugh. I'm so relaxed. Warm like blood. Layin' on my back in the sun-dried mud. There's no point in even trying to get up. I got my eyes glued to the blue sky above. And it's been a beautiful summer. It reminds me of when I was younger. Used to count down to the sound of thunder I smell fresh cut grass mixed with the burnt rubber. And I don't need to take a glance to know, Cause' I can hear the traffic as it passes slow. They' on the other side of the window - Checkin' out the damage, lookin' at the show. I can hear the sirens get near. Mama used to tell us to plug our ears. It get's so loud and clear until every other noise disappears. And right now I'm tryin' to block it out, By imagining the sounds that come out' your mouth. I saw two birds fly south, And I thought about the day we bought that house. Memories seem so real. just like everything that I feel. Tried to coast on all five wheels. I wanna cry, I keep the tears concealed. I hear voices; footsteps. A cops radio off to the left. The noise made me reflect. Somewhere along the way I must've caught my breath. Drifting. dreaming. and then I heard somebody screaming. But I don't even want to know the reason, So I kept my focus on the view I'm seeing. Started thinkin' bout the ones that's gone. Everybody from the past that passed on. You played your cards, had to stand strong. But it ain't that hard to sing a sad song. We all got scars and broken parts. But most of the marks stay close to my heart. Waitin' for the down-poor to start. The rain clouds over my head got dark. And then I saw my angel cut through the storm - She was in a firefighter uniform. I close my eyes so I can see some more And for the first ever I remember bein' born. If you can save me now, Let's go someplace safe and sound. I'll try not to weigh you down, But I don't know if I can wait around. I say ... If you can save me now, Let's go someplace safe and sound. I'll try not to weigh you down, But I don't know if I can wait around. I say... But I don't know if I can wait around, I say.. I'll try not to weigh you down, but I don't know if I can wait around, I say... If you can save me now.

City Girl

THE JEZABELS "Prisoner"
No more will I look around and wonder how it all began No more will I look around for you Flex a muscle Turn a light on In your blind spot What's the time fox? Thinking clearly Stepping up and over And baby, I don't wonder why You feel I remind you of... And baby, I don't wonder why I hit the ground running every time But, gee, I get rush I get shivers inside when you call Let it all unfold Let it show, Fortune You'll be a city girl And saying goodbye to the sweet simple life that you knew Ooh hoo, toodaloo It's true You're through Through with the old world Every month this shit gets awry Know my body tells a story Of the earth in all her pain and glory Running towards it, maybe power-walkin' How are you? Caught the flu? Well, I only know I want you to adore me And baby, I don't wonder why You feel I remind you of... Maybe I don't wonder why I hit the ground running every time And going by the candlelight And hoping I'll seal my... Gee, I get out on the streets late and I walk Let it hurl, unfurl on the world, go berserk Get on your own turf Someone will hand you a sweet proposition one day And you'll say, say, "G'day How you doin' Fortune?" You'll be a city girl soon. Gee, I get rush I get shivers inside when you call Let it all unroll like a troll on you Get in the bar and grill Rubbin' them titties on edges of cities and worlds Let the old control go home and groom, You'll be a city girl soon.
