HELMET lyrics - Aftertaste

Pure

Original and similar lyrics
Affected by what you had lost They're not the habits you'd protect At any cost Blur the details of your hand Anything your barren conscience Can't defend The limits of attention span Successive thoughts you don't have But you still pretend Keep on talking anyway Protected by what you know No one will ever say Because you can't be pure You're self-assured

Bravado

RUSH "Counterparts"
If we burn our wings Flying too close to the sun If the moment of glory Is over before it's begun If the dream is won Though everything is lost We will pay the price, But we will not count the cost When the dust has cleared And victory denied A summit too lofty River a little too wide If we keep our pride Though paradise is lost We will pay the price, But we will not count the cost And if the music stops There's only the sound of the rain All the hope and glory All the sacrifice in vain [And] if love remains Though everything is lost We will pay the price, But we will not count the cost ¡¡

Half Light II (No Celebration)

ARCADE FIRE "The Suburbs"
Now that San Francisco's gone, I guess I'll just pack it in. Wanna wash away my sins, In the presence of my friends. You and I we head back East, To find a town where we can live. Even in the half light, We can see that something's gotta give. When we watched the markets crash, The promises we made were torn Then my parents sent for me, From out West where I was born. Some people say, we've already lost, But they're afraid to pay the cost for what we've lost. Pay the cost for what we've lost Now that you have left me here, I will never raise my voice. All the diamonds you have here, In this home which has no life. Oh, this city's changed so much Since I was a little child. Pray that God won't live to see The death of everything that's wild. Though we knew this day would come, Still it took us by surprise. In this town where I was born, I now see through a dead man's eyes. One day they will see it's long gone. One day they will see it's long gone. One day they will see it's long gone. One day they will see it's long gone.

Friends Will Be Friends

QUEEN "A Kind Of Magic"
Another red letter day So the pound has dropped and the children are creating The other half ran away Taking all the cash and leaving you with the lumber Got a pain in the chest Doctors on strike what you need is a rest It's not easy love, but you've got friends you can trust Friends will be friends When you're in need of love they give you care and attention Friends will be friends When you're through with life and all hope is lost Hold out your hand 'cos friends will be friends - right till the end Now it's a beautiful day The postman delivered a letter from your lover Only a 'phone call away You tried to track him down but somebody stole his number As a matter of fact You're getting used to life without him in your way It's so easy now, 'cos you got friends you can trust Friends will be friends When you're in need of love they give you care and attention Friends will be friends When you're through with life and all hope is lost Hold out your hand 'cos friends will be friends - right till the end It's so easy now, 'cos you got friends you can trust Friends will be friends When you're in need of love they give you care and attention Friends will be friends When you're through with life and all hope is lost Hold out your hand - friends will be friends - right till the end Friends will be friends When you're in need of love they give you care and attention Friends will be friends When you're through with life and all hope is lost Hold out your hand 'cos right till the end - friends will be friends Yeah yeah

We Trusted You

Transplants
[Chorus:] We trusted you, we put out a helping hand Only in return, we get a stabbing in the back [x2] I paid a visit to a man who was pretty crazy Cooled off in the shade, we were feelin' lazy Trouble starts coming , nothing can phase me When tomorrow looks very hazy Took us for granted, let's start here Friendship over, so very clear Then what is fair, is gonna be fair Fuck you...you're over [Chorus] It's time to weed out the weak, do away with their lives I see it so clear now, through my open eyes Stood by your side, you put a knife in my back Never ever thought it'd be you who would do me like that But we live and we learn, or so it's said One thing about you, I can't wait till you're dead The mistakes I've made won't happen again Keep my enemies closer than I keep my friends It's got me fucked up, I just can't let it go Will we ever be the same? Well my answer is no Think about your death every goddamn day Wanna know what I think? This is what I must say I say we line 'em all up, then we gun 'em all down Then we all celebrate when they all hit the ground Don't wake up now, it's gonna be too late Don't give me that shit about cleanin' the slate You've been at it too long, all your life that I've checked Now your time's almost up with a noose on your neck Smile in my face, better watch your back Two-faced motherfucker gets both jaws cracked [chorus] [instrumental] If you don't stand for nothing I can't really stand behind you Who knew you withdrew your point of view I lost mine, you cry and whine all the time And I cant stand aside or anywhere near you I'd get in check, you're a wreck, no respect, In effect you elect me to fuckin' hate you I'll break you down on the ground, I've found You're a clown, I'm around, you want war? I'll take you Stand aside, take a ride, I won't try, you're a lie, my lyrical lesson will teach you So take a stand if you can, my man, go where I stand, I'll hold my hand But in the real world you get squashed and then stung Get hit bitch, slit, aw then you get hung in a fantasy all day long, it must be so fun being so fucking dumb [chorus]

Never Forget

TAKE THAT "Nobody Else"
Been on this path of life for so long Feel I've walked a thousand miles Sometimes strolled hand in hand with love Everybody's been there With danger on my mind I would stay on the line of hope I knew I could make it Once I knew the boundaries I looked into the clouds and saw My face in the moonlight Just then I realised what a fool I could be Just cause I look so high I don't have to see me Finding a paradise wasn't easy but still There's a road going down the other side of this hill Never forget where you've come here from Never pretend that it's all real Someday soon this will be someone else's dream Been safe from the arms of disappointment for so long Feel each day we've come too far Yet each day seems to make much more Sure is good to be here I understand the meaning of 'I can't explain this feeling' Now it feels so unreal At night I see the hand that reminds me of the stand I make The fact of reality Never forget where you've come here from Never pretend that it's all real Someday soon this will be someone else's dream We've come so far and we've reached so high And we've looked each day and night in the eye And we're still so young and we hope for more But remember this We're not invincible, we're not invincible - No We're only people, we're only people Hey we're not invincible, we're not invincible So again I'll tell you Never forget where you've come here from Never pretend that it's all real Someday soon this will be someone else's dream
