Original and similar lyrics
(Jackson Spires) I've been thinking about my childhood And what your books they taught me If things don't work out like they ought to It wouldn't matter much to me Yes, Look at the land And see all the destruction In a land that once was mine Well, do you go forward? I don't think so We'll have it all back in due time My heart belongs in an Indian world A place that I can call my home I've been livin' in a white man's world Taught nothing of my own We used to soar high as the eagles Far as we could fly Then you came along lookin' for your targets Now the eagles they have died You killed our fathers Raped our mothers Killed our sons and daughters too We break your laws We don't mean to We can't help but what we are My heart belongs in an Indian world A place that I can call my home I've been livin' in a white man's world Taught nothing

ALAN JACKSON "Here In The Real World"
In a small town down in Georgia over forty years ago Her maiden name was Musik til she met that Jackson boy They married young like folks did then, not a penny to their name But they believe the one you vow to love Should always stay that same And on the land his daddy gave him, a foundation under way For a love to last forever or until their dying day They built a bond that's strong enough to stand the test of time And a place for us to turn to when our lives were in a bind And they made their house from a toolshed Grandaddy rolled down on two logs And they builts walls all around it And they made that house a home They taught us 'bout good living They taught is right and wrong Lord there'll never be another place In this world I'll call home My momma raised five children, four girls then there was me She found her strength with faith in Gof and love of family She never had a social life, home was all she knew Except the time she took a job, to play a bill or two My daddy skinned his knuckles on the cars that he repaired He never earned much money but he gane us all he had He never made the front page but he did the best he couold And folks drove their cars from miles around To let him look underneath the hood And they made their house from a toolshed Grandaddy rolled down on two logs And they builts walls all around it And they made that house a home They taught us 'bout good living They taught is right and wrong Lord there'll never be another place In this world I'll call home No there'll never be another place in this world That I'll call home

Immigrant Song Too

King Prawn
I come from a land So far away I've come to make a living Then get away Better prospects here That's what they say Better people here That's what they say Stepping off the boat With my suitcase in my hand Be damned by the eyes Of the immigration man The purpose of my visit Is questioned and doubted Suspicion fails They don't believe I was invited Feeling all alone There ain't no place to call home I'm here from a land Far from my family Brought on the wave Of new opportunity Come and help the motherland Is what they said Suitcase in my hand To a foreign land Stepping down the street Trying to find my own two feet Turned away by landlords Who refuse to let me in A boarder in a hostel I'm caged like an animal The odds were stacked against me For my own survival Feeling all alone There ain't no place to call home They're clearing the way For a deportation order They wanna put me on The first plane home tomorrow But in their haste They overlooked my visa Saddened faces See that I am Bona Fida There ain't no place to call home

The Ballad Of Ira Hayes

JOHNNY CASH "Bitter Tears: Ballads Of The American Indian"
Ira Hayes, Ira Hayes [CHORUS:] Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war Gather round me people there's a story I would tell About a brave young Indian you should remember well From the land of the Pima Indian A proud and noble band Who farmed the Phoenix valley in Arizona land Down the ditches for a thousand years The water grew Ira's peoples' crops 'Till the white man stole the water rights And the sparklin' water stopped Now Ira's folks were hungry And their land grew crops of weeds When war came, Ira volunteered And forgot the white man's greed [CHORUS:] Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war There they battled up Iwo Jima's hill, Two hundred and fifty men But only twenty-seven lived to walk back down again And when the fight was over And when Old Glory raised Among the men who held it high Was the Indian, Ira Hayes [CHORUS:] Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war Ira returned a hero Celebrated through the land He was wined and speeched and honored; Everybody shook his hand But he was just a Pima Indian No water, no crops, no chance At home nobody cared what Ira'd done And when did the Indians dance [CHORUS:] Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war Then Ira started drinkin' hard; Jail was often his home They'd let him raise the flag and lower it like you'd throw a dog a bone! He died drunk one mornin' Alone in the land he fought to save Two inches of water in a lonely ditch Was a grave for Ira Hayes [CHORUS:] Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war Yeah, call him drunken Ira Hayes But his land is just as dry And his ghost is lyin' thirsty In the ditch where Ira died

The Winged Horse

Gamma Ray "Somewhere Out In Space"
In a land, far beyond the sun Rules the darkness, faceless magician Black towers which raise into the sky Castle of stones, shadows passing by Blood is covering the mighty walls Of those who lost their skin and bones No one ever saw the light Oh, slaves of the night There's a young man, chained on a stake Lifeless body, he has no strenght to break His shirt is bloody, his head is hanging down Decides to die, the ruler took his crown The wind howles through the emptiness A different sound as in the past Screaming echoes in the lanes Oh, victims of the pain The clouds passing by, a hole breaks the sky Light refract the dark and fills the place White winged horse, such a powerful force Gallops through the sky to break the chains The winged horse lands by the one It snorts and stamps, the escape has just begun The chains are broken, silence fills the place He backs the horse with his last ounce of strenght The white horse rears and spreads its wings To reach for the sky and search for the kings The one will lead to win at last Oh, rulers of the past The clouds passing by, a hole breaks the sky Light refract the dark and fills the place White winged horse, such a powerful force Gallops through the sky to free the land The white horse rears and spreads its wings To reach for the sky and search for the kings The one will lead to win at last Oh, rulers of the past SOLO: Henjo / Kai / Henjo / both / Henjo The kings return they're armed with mighty swords To retake the land and banish evil thoughts They fight against the shadows, capture souls of the dark might Dethrone the evil ruler to bring sun into the night The battle takes a heavy toll But they achieve what they're fighting for Now the land is free again Oh, no more blood and pain The clouds passing by, a hole breaks the sky Light refract the dark and fills the place White winged horse, such a powerful force Gallops through the sky to free the land But still at night when darkness rules again Whispering shadows creeping through the lanes Evil creatures of the expelled magician Oh, it's a fight you'll never win

SWOLLEN MEMBERS "Balance"
[Verse 1:] Ever heard of Vertigo Well ain't no way else to go Prevail knows the faculties, our poison lay you vertical It's only murder for every small animal committed The only difference is I won't admit I did it There's a limit as to how far my posse's willing to bend The Don of a blinds the minds of most men from the quarantine, praying for the end You can tell by the stench that the venom's setting in On the plane in which you reign, it's classified as 'Do or die' But in the realm in which we dwell, its 'Puncture necks and multiply' Imagine the madness, the return of the Jew from Nazareth The hunter and the hunted, the colonizing and savages The only challenge is, did they bring enough to dirt to bury us Be aware, I hunt with the god as a cerabus Where we're going, don't stress, there'll be plenty of time to rest Close the curtains, brace your sternum, this is just a contest [Chorus: Arabic singing] [Verse 2: Madchild] The ultimate experience, I've already felt it Madchild tasting her tounge, his heart melts With the second chance for this demon that she dealt with Few and far between from Beauty and the Beast To a perfect combination, once this passion is unleashed Golden Angel, precious Princess and since This is more than just lust, trust if not now, then soon One love, we'll have our chance to dance on the moon Now the feel the trance of this goddess, vicious vibrations Lapdances, venomous serpents of temptation Awkward balance, scars on my back from her talons An evil evening, drinking blood by the gallons Drenched, venting tension, adrenaline rush Pain stains the carpet when you run into us An effortless task, cold hearts and iron masks Nightmares have been implanted, that you shouldn't try and grasp [Chorus] [Verse 3: Prevail, Madchild] [Prevail] Come stand amongst us, just don't ask us who brung us Just one of them amongst us, come on, you can trust us We're the league that serves the justice, we're the confident ones Come run amongst us and conquer someone [Madchild] Some come to seek honor [Prevail] Some seek to reek havoc [Madchild] Either you do or don't have it [Prevail] If we speak, it's tragic [Madchild] When the sun rises, are you surprised that I'm a beast Leatherface withers, cracks, and starts to crease Feel your heart rate decrease, the unveiling of the vain White widow, crystal palace, champagne, who calls them strange [Prevail] And down here it's the strangest thing [Madchild] Flaming skies start to fall [Prevail] My jaws of life, the cause of death, my breath swing a wrecking ball [Madchild] This is your beckoning call [Prevail] While we checkin you all, All praise the Circuit Breaker that circulates through your walls And appalls all who call [Madchild] I brawl, maul, and maim [Both] WE BLESS AND DESTROY WITH STRENGTH STILL OUT OF RANGE
