Role Model

Original and similar lyrics
Sorry for myself, I've lost my Kharmic wealth but I can take from you with antiseptic stealth I'll dig my own grave, get my Front yard paved There's always a penny earned Another dollar saved What lies ahead I always my point, soak Bread in dirty oil Right's too strong a word The neighborhood's been spoiled but I know what I know, stuck that Inner glow I don't have time to learn I said I know what I know I'm wrong, I won't admit it I won't get it

That Was Then, This Is Now

JOSH WILSON "That Was Then, This Is Now"
We used to hide from the light We made friends with the night We were headed the wrong way on a one way track Going nowhere fast We got used to the dark We thought this is who we are And we figured that we were just too far gone But we were wrong ‘Cause love came running like a river And we got washed in the water Then He said you're forgiven Your sins are gone That was then, this is now You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about That was lost, this is found And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then and this is now We've been remade by grace We've all got new names And nothing we do could ever change What He did that day When love came running like a river And we got washed in the water Then He said you’re forgiven And you belong That was then, this is now You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about That was lost, this is found And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then If we turn and confess every unrighteousness He is faithful and just to forgive Oh, so turn and confess every wrong and regret And see what it means to live That was then, this is now You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about That was lost, this is found And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then and this is now So go ahead, put the past in the past Box it up like an old photograph You don’t have to go back ‘Cause that was then and this is now

I'll Be OK

AESOP ROCK "Float"
[Slug] Burn it down... Pad the circles 'round your life To capture all the sides you sight Magic tricks where skeptics sink The ice is thin, stay off the lake Waiting for a clock to punch Wish I could breathe and stop for lunch If I stop tocount the leaves on one of these here trees Not sure that I know what's pure Born to kill the insecure Some respect, some resent, some remain from start to end Wear my heart on my short sleeves I'm stuck out here, I lost my keys From the roof I watch the street And pray for those that's caught beneath [Chorus--Slug and Aesop] 2x As long as I know right from wrong I'll be ok, I'll sing my songs [Slug] I dunno what I have to left To give other than truth and breath Angel when she shuts her eyes Like we will leave to my demise Between my time is short About to start my last resort Wake me up when it's time to make babies Talkin planet earthquakes Tied the laces, touch the ground Let emotions ruptured now As long as I know right from wrong, I'll be ok I'll sing my songs Chorus 4x [Aesop Rock] I wanna lift every yellowbrick I never felt pressure to have to justify my selfishness At least not to your and yours Maybe just my friends and fellowships As long as the mood is somehow linked to my enhanced development I swear they'll understand!!! There's a storm outside my tenament Beats upon my windows with Mother Nature's adrenaline I guess that's why my homey Blockhead stays glued to the television Now I look less intelligent Cuz I'm the one that tried to bear the elements and lost Well it's warm by the filament Huddled up close in the company of all my relatives Stories lash like coffee and honest-to-God sentiment Cucooned in the unified efforts to all get settled in Away from where the rain pours! Well count your delegates Weed out the bums who practice migration under the elegant Of course I realize to fill the ring, procedure's delicate But lead devils inside to collide with your overzealousness And fall to rock bottom Spot em with their carelessness The urge could burst to turn even those hazardous to militant You can't even have half of free second The beat comes gelatin You gotta aim, fire and the spider be model veteran Buried in merit badges I'm stuck in the center and could care less About the eye of the storm and its monstrous measurements I got a defense that I call coolin with my brethren Sometimes I get wet But it's better than risking life and limb to me, don't you agree? Chorus 4x [Aesop Rock] *repeat to fade* If you wanna push, than I'm ready to push But if you pulling while I'm pushing Then why did you ask me to push?

ALL THAT REMAINS "...For We Are Many"
Hands tied, force fed, truth lies twisting form Diversion, covert, discrete, conquered from within Disown, failure, no recourse, disavow the structure How could they not know, not see Now broken promise this legacy Intent to save, consuming everything before us Deceived No remorse, no shame, for the failure Sold out country, greased palms, for special treatment Populate the weak mind When all seems lost we count the cost We still remain connected We'll be made strong we are not wrong We will not be neglected Utopia false destiny, now propaganda the lies deceive When all is given the structure will be torn asunder and fall When all seems lost we count the cost We still remain connected We'll be made strong we are not wrong We will not be neglected Now take this doubt and cast it out Weakness will be rejected And through all wrongs we must stay strong We will not be neglected Stop society's decay We must create Prevail

Everybody's Favorite Song

Vroom "Things Not To Do"
There's always one more line that rewrites everything Off-centered word games in a maze of confusion I can tell you think you've got something to say Profoundly moving but you can't show the way out I don't know why, you're stuck inside, that web of lies Has got you leading while you're blind And you try so hard to speak But there's no one listening And you try so hard To make a point to the world Til there's nothing left to say And there's no inventive way But to scream it loud and strong So far they'll buy into almost anything you say Verse one and two paints a complete illusion One thought too many, and the wrong way may seem right Mentally flex and make them see another lig

My Experience

Peter Hammill
It was nothing, it came from nowhere at all, it was a casual remark, not a curtain-call. Late for breakfast - black coffee, brandy-laced... that look on your face. I'll remember last night; I'll look out for the signs; You were caught in the light Ref. time after time it's been my experience that when the row gets serious a certain silence will fall... But I just can't stop it, why don't you tell me what's wrong? My heart goes like a rocket, the feeling's so strong. I just can't stop it, why don't you tell me what's wrong? Don't think about it too long. I could argue this another way, but on another day I might have to shout. You keep your mouth shut, but it's too late for that now: the word got out. In translation it's lost, in desperation it's mimed; is this Paradise lost, or Paradise time after time? Ref.
