State Of The Union

Original and similar lyrics
I was talking 'bout the state of the union How there's no one now in power thinking of me I was saying how we ought to try to fix it Find a leader who is not afraid to be Then a voice came out of the darkness Saying Tear the system down Tear it down I was thinking 'bout how that was very crazy And I tried to find a way to tell him so But when I did I used a word that was quite nasty How the policeman heard me man I'll never know Then a voice came out of the darkness Saying Tear the system down Tear it down; down to the ground I was wrestled off to one side of the theater And they said I'd have to go right to jail They don't permit coarse language in their city But they did accept a large amount of bail Then a voice came out of the darkness Saying Tear the system down Tear it down; down to the ground

Won't Go There No More

APRIL WINE "Back To The Mansion"
For the record I did everything I could And I know that a change would do me good It would I better get away from the sound (away from the sound) I gotta run before it brings me down How 'bout you Ya how 'bout you I don't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I don't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I don't go there In a way it's like a wave crashing over me To get away is the only chance i see For me I knew the space could tear us apart (tear us apart) I did my best and it broke my heart How 'bout you Ya how 'bout you I won't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I won't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I won't go there Our memories won't bring down There's no reason for this place Time to search for higher ground I said for higher ground It's like an emotional wave slammin me It's all we know or so it seems to be How bout you Baby how 'bout you I hope to get away Look at what you made me do I won't go there I won't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I won't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I won't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I won't go there no more (na na na na, na naaa) I won't go there I won't go there no more

Change My Stars

Paperboys "The Great Escape"
I get the strangest ideas/ get drunk/ leave angels in tears turning flames into painful affairs/ so now I'm lying here draining beers/ I can't explain it's weird got me thinking damn maybe I'm scared/ coz I'd like someone to listen to but I hate having to tell them I'm sorry for not missing you/feeling cold and this is difficult/ guess love differs your periphial view sort of like sniffing glue/ it was cool I know you hoped for us/ didn't mind that I smoked so much /I saw the signs/ you opened up, gave me time/ and everything was fine till I fucked up and broke your trust/ but even so you never showed disgust/ it's like I find a surprise and all I wanted was to drown in her eyes/ and lay surrounded by the sound of the skies/ but I guss I never tried so for all of those lies/ I apologise “My intent was not to fail you all / See I'm just trying to change my stars / Got me locked at these crossroads thinking which way should I go/ which way should I go / anticipating what the next day's bringing / Try to prepare with your heartbeat racing / It's kind of like when I'm writing my flows /thinking which way should I go /which way should I go' Guess I've proven to be a handful /coz it's like every other day another scandal/ had a career but now they saying that it's cancelled /ain't that a whole lot of shit to be playing for some uncleared samples? /quite more than I can stand for/ but then again I kind of like your damn show coz my shit went gold/ another shipment sold and all the other kids enrolled/ coz what they do now I did before/and some of them did know/ those who didn't/ now they heard it from you /so you're the fool bringing my words into school /you're just a tool i can use gaining success/ now everyday is another I don't give a fuck-fest/ I just like the truth /there really ain't that much left / and I don't see how me talking about my life can make you upset/ that's too much stress you need to relax/ and look around maybe jesus is back/ go find him Sometimes I wish that no one on this earth could stand me /if I deserved to be loved I wouldn't hurt my family/ fill my body with drugs while giving birth to panic /it's like I'm just another worthless addict /shit/ I ain't even working at it /though I know, nobody's perfect /I feel I've lost my right to ask for a purpose/ it seems I just make it worse and search beneath the surface/ and try to find some light up in this circus /but I'm nervous all I see is the mistakes I made/ cut me open like a razor blade/ and in these motherfucking crazy days feel my faith uncovered/ pray the doctors will save my brother /think about the promises people make each other/ but life interferes/ got to do right by them that cared/ ive been a burden for them to bear /so I know I can't end it here

Wish You Were Here

ASLYN "The Grand Garden"
I'm standing on this wooden pier Just people getting along A little boy with his fishing gear And an old man playing a song I took a picture of these strangers Just like you would do I feel so underworked and out of danger I wish that you could too I wish you were here To soak up this town I can't wait any longer The sun's going down And I've been thinking, lately Holding back a tear I wish you were here I walked along the sandy shore Holding both my shoes And I could smell the candy store And your honey-glazed cashews A family on a blanket Full of sunscreen, shades and food A radio playing Maggie May I almost came unglued I wish you were here I think you'd love this town I can't wait any longer The sun's almost down And I've been thinking, lately Holding back a tear I wish you were here And you're the one that carries me When my head feels out of control And you will always be the one That lingers in my soul I wish you were here I know you'll love this town I can't wait any longer The sun's just went down And I've been thinking, lately Holding back a tear I wish you were here In the light from these lamps on this lonely street And I've been thinking, lately Still holding back a tear I wish you were here I wish you were here

Beautiful In Blue

ALESANA
Silence screams, "you're just so beautiful in blue" Breathless stares escape your undying eyes Are you blind to my sorrow and sympathy? A piece of me will die with your last breath... This will all be over soon for you are so lost inside Glazed eyes long for the waves' embrace Drawn to an end so near... Far away are days when you smiled just to hear my voice Why are you trying to run away? My love, I can't find the words to tell you... Drown all of your fantasies Silent angel crashes through the sky With your final broken promise Having lost sight of the stars Regail me with your tales of lonely, bittersweet loss Giving up comes too easy when hope is gone I'll walk away so you can choke on your dying breath But if you side against me, to hell with you... Far away are days when you smiled just to hear my voice Why are you trying to run away? My love, I can't find the words to tell you... The fear has stolen her heart as she wakes from her dream Treacherous ink finds her lungs, seizing her screams Numb hands now reach too late to take back the light Far away are days when you smiled just to hear my voice Why are you trying to run away? My love, I can't find the words to tell you... Far away are days when you smiled... Seas cry out butchering this tragic soul without hope Their frailty is broken and now fades into the blue...

Inner Voice

ADAM SANDLER "Stan And Judy's Kid"
I'm happily married with a house and three mistresses Even with the beard I'm not as hairy as my sister is Got a new Hummer, two Ferraris, and some Lexuses And all the girls I know got the big big breasteses I got a ten story mansion on the beach With a swimmin' pool filled up with the drool of Robin Leach Richer than a Twinkie, I got so much cash That to me Paris Hilton is poor white trash I take forty-seven weeks of vacation a year If people piss me off I can make 'em disappear Every time I sneeze I get a feature on the news The reporter says "gesundheit" and hilarity ensues And how did I get to be the man that I am? A god among men, only without the tan It's simple, every time I have to make a choice I just listen to my little inner voice, and he says "Shave all the hair off your butt and glue it to your nostrils" OK "Steal all the milk from all the supermarkets and put it back in the cows" Alright "Find out which species of rodent is the most flammable" OK "Let's see what fun crafts we can make using only a chainsaw and Regis Philbin" Yeah! So how do I explain my little cranial expressions Intuition, premonition, or demonic possession? It could be God, an angel, or my dead uncle Paul Or that nasty purple fuzzy thing that lives in my wall Doesn't matter, and to be honest I don't wanna know 'Cause thanks to him I've never had to deal with an HMO And I can go show off my rocket powered solid gold Benz I tell ya life is no much nicer with invisible friends "Record an all-banjo Falco tribute album" Done, and done. "Put on a tutu, glue two live wiener dogs to your face, and prance around the subway terminal screaming 'Stop looking at me!'" OK "There's no reason not to have sex with a cheese grater." Hmm, no, I suppose not. "Set up a stand outside of K-Mart with a plate full of frozen peas and a sign reading 'Take one!' If anyone asks you what the hell your doing, give them a button that says 'I asked about the peas!'" He's become my best friend, sticks with me to the end Thanks to him I'll never live on Ramen noodles again And he's always by my side, every minute, every hour Though it does get kinda creepy when I'm trying to take a shower Still I can't complain 'cause he made me rich And figured out it was the opossum milk that made me itch If it seems weird remember the voice made me do it I don't question what he says I just get up and get to it "Itemize everything in your cat's litter box for the next seven years and mail a report to the President with a note saying 'Here!'" Good idea "It's time to find out what urinal cakes taste like" If you say so "Get a black and white horizontally striped suit, a mask, and a bowling ball with a small length of rope hanging from it, and tiptoe around the airport." Sounds like fun "How old does a baby need to be before it's too big to fit down the toilet?" I don't know. Let's find out. "Keep swallowing magnets until your farts can erase video tapes." Will do So to that guy in my head I just wanna say thanks For removin' my angst, so I'm no longer shootin' blanks And now I own several banks, plus an inflatable watch And paid Justin Timberlake to let me kick him in the crotch I followed his advice and now I'm makin' major duckets If it wasn't for him I'd still be processing McNuggets So when life makes you feel like you should've stayed in bed Just listen to the voice in your head, and he'll say "Fat people are full of toys. Go get some!" Yeah! "Build a 20 foot tall nude statue of Tony Goldmark licking warm margarine off a malnourished dolphin out of onions, pez, and lint." With pleasure! "If Yanni didn't want to be set on fire and shoved down a flight of stairs, surely he would have said so explicitly by now." Yeah, I guess so. "Go to a McDonald's Playland, tie that big Officier Big Mac thing to the back of your car, and drive away at 90 mph. When a cop pulls you over, roll down the window and indignantly ask 'WHAT?'" You got it! "Move to New Jersey and become a comedy rap artist." Oh... do I have to?
