ELVIS COSTELLO lyrics - My Aim Is True

Blame It On Cain

Original and similar lyrics
Once upon a time, I had a little money. Government burglars took it long before I could mail it to you. Still, you are the only one. Now I can't let it slip away. So if the man with the ticker tape, he tries to take it, well this is what I'm gonna say. Blame it on Cain. Don't blame it on me. Oh, oh, it's nobody's fault, but we need somebody to burn. Well if I was a saint with a silver cup and the money got low we could always heat it up or trade it in. But then the radio TO heaven will be wired to your purse. And then you can run down the wave band, coast to coast, hand in hand. Better or worse, curse for curse, don't be dissatisfied. So you're not satisfied. chorus I think I've lived a little too long on the outskirts of town I think I'm going insane from talking to myself for so long. Oh but I've never been accused. When they step on your face, you wear that good look grin. I gotta break out one weekend if I do somebody in. But every single time I feel a little stronger, they tell me it's a crime. Well how much longer? chorus

Been A Long Time

Jake
VERSE ONE: It's been a long time since I felt like I do now Is it my imagination You got through to me somehow I don't even try to get you off my mind And I know that I can't walk away this time CHORUS ONE: And I love the way I feel today It's crazy, but this time I know I want it Oh, I need it And every new sensation, every move you make You know I'm ready Oh, I'm ready VERSE TWO: Isn't it crazy what your heart can do sometimes When it's not the same as yesterday You open up your eyes And you see the face you've been dreaming of And you know that you're about to fall in love (repeat chorus one twice) CHORUS TWO: And I wonder where you are tonight I wonder if you'll be alright, I'm waiting And it tears me up inside And my heart, it feels so heavy And I just can't take it anymore I'm ready Oh, I'm ready It's been a long time since I felt like I do now It's been a long, long time Since I fell in love Since I fell in In love Oh---

You Pay

Crass
Chorus: Don't want a life of lies and pretence Don't want to play at attack and defense Just want my own life, I want to be free So you can be you, and I can be me Respectable businessman smart and secure Eat the fat of the land that they robbed from the poor The butcher is smiling as he brings down the knife As he cuts up the meat, he thinks of the wife As eminent psychiatrists suffer paranoid fits The ones they call mad have to pick up the bits The preachers speaks calmly, says it's love that we lack While his imaginary dagger is held at our back Chorus In bed you're the master or mistress, who cares? Abusing each other as your work off your fears Go climb a mountain, go fuck a scout Avoidance of self is what it's about Pretence and illusion to avoid who you are Don't work on yourself, just polish the car Switch on the telly afraid you might find That as well as a body you've also a mind Cheap glossy surface to cover the lie Cheap easy answers to the what, where and why Media drivel, yet you still watch the screen Life ain't for real, it's a magazine Conned from the start but hang onto the lies A slave to the cathode ray paradise You don't want the world, you just want the pics Media junkies, you'd die for a fix Chorus So you say you'll regret it, well that's maybe a start But it's so fucking easy to act out a part Say you'll reject it, but still toe the line Conning yourself that you're doing just fine Anarchy, freedom, more games to play? Fight war, not wars? Well it's something to say Slogans and badges worn without thought Instant identities so cheaply bought Well freedom ain't product, it just isn't fun You're looking for peace your work's just begun Fighting oppression, aggression and hate Fighting warmongers before it's too late We've got to fight back to show that we care For so many years we've been silenced by fear Our lives have been ruined by liars and fools The powerful and greedy who bind us with rules Politicians and preachers who bind us with laws Stolen our peace and given us wars They've used us as means to their own violent ends Turned us against each other, made foes out of friends They've distorted, perverted, polluted our lives They've brainwashed the world with their sordid beliefs They seek to possess, control and corrupt If it's freedom we're after, they've got to be stopped

Rider

Kingston Trio "Sunny Side!"
Shane/Reynolds/Henske Chorus: Well, I know you, Rider, gonna miss me when I'm gone. (Repeat) You're gonna miss your daddy rollin' in your arms. Well, the sun's gonna shine on my back porch some day. I said (Repeat) Then the wind from the river's gonna blow all my troubles away. (Chorus) Well, I ain't got a nickel, no, I ain't got a lousy dime. (Repeat) But I got a long way to go 'fore the end of my time. (Chorus) It takes a hard hearted woman to make a long time men feel bad. (Repeat) 'Cause it makes him remember the long hard road that he's had. (Chorus)
