Can't Help Myself

Original and similar lyrics
She comes walking down the street That's the kind, hey, That's the kind I want to meet I think I'm making it up I should be putting it down and it's beginning to show I get it fixed in my head and it won't let go Oh, I can't help myself when I feel this way I want to be someone else When I get this feeling it gets in my system I can't put the brakes on Now she's walking next to me that's the place, yeah, that's the place I want to be I think I'm making it up I should be putting it down and it's beginning to show I get it fixed in my head and it won't let go Hack

Tears For The Sheep

ATMOSPHERE "Lucy Ford: The Atmosphere EPs"
[Verse 1: Slug] A city of fools I wanna bash whoever's responsible for this incomprehensible lack of passion The sucker's been seduced down to the stick And the peasants fill their bellies with the poisons you omit I've come to seperate the heads and shoulders Of these tracin' paper soldiers That have been designated to take it over I'ma roll a couple of boulders off the cliff On the road below (look out below) 'Cause I don't know what I'ma hit (yo) I live by the word until I die by your sword Even when I'm dead my head will live inside your RCA cords I wait for the right time, but it resembled now-a-days Descended on the Earth to put an end to all your holidays The assassin covered in plain clothes Smothered the sunlight and set flame to your rainbows And then came the storm (and then came the storm) Bewildered those that didn't contemplate Fake disguised as the norm (as the norm) And when the smoke evaporated and the damage was assessed The casualities were counted as they looked upon the mess As they focused they eyes on the horizon, who'da guessed? All that stood atop the hill was number seven silhouette [Chorus: Slug] (And with this) head splitting tears, cement breaking weeping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep head splitting tears, cement breaking Leaping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep [Verse 2: Slug] They say a picture's worth a thousand words Well I beg a thousand pardons for each word I've used for personal gains But the letters that float through my head, demote my sentences Could never be contained by your simple picture frames For every intoxicated moment, I hate life I strive to balance my aura by dancing with the light And sometimes it's difficult to stay quiet I fight it, each time I find myself walking across your eyelids Wishin' the malnutrition, the imagination of yours Could see the truth you breathe through each one of your pores And now the days are drastic, the nights last forever Wanna tear this motherfucker up and put it back together I'd like to ask the cats that act like they my peers If you spent the energy I've spit, tryin' to count the tears One of these days you're gonna climb the tallest building of all Give a warning to those below and let the tears fall [Chorus: Slug] (And with the) all the head splitting tears, cement breaking weeping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep head splitting tears, cement breaking Leaping for these people walking in their sleep (these people walking in their sleep) My talk is not as cheap And my thoughts are not as deep As the day I woke up to discover I lost my sheep [Brief Singing: Some Female] (2X) Nobodies here 'cept my mirror on the wall [Verse 3: Slug] The damage...overseen by anyone that comprehends The anguish...felt only by the ones that invest The language...was primitive, the listener complex And everybody was trying to define success All the self-proclaimed prophets dressed up to look like poets Pretendin' to be martyrs that they're not You can learn all their names And engrave them on your brains Memories so you can spout them off the top (spout them off the top) Yo kill 'em all, and let God give 'em handcuffs The flood has begun, and no one has been paired up So I'ma take a second to beckon the downfall of your so called civilized nation (Yo yo yo yo yo) stop the sound now! (Cough)

History

AZIATIX "Awakening"
So many things that I want, do I let them go? I work so hard for this music, and if it's too much to ask then let me know Cuz' I want this so bad I can't sleep, no Keep this up how the hell am I gonna eat? No Cuz' I'm grown as a man In the lab like 24, 7 days a week bam See if they can all do it, why can't I? God taking my life is the only way that I can't try Plus I know that I'm different from all mankind And I ain't work this hard for years to waste all that time Words of Martin Luther "Everybody has a dream" And anything is possible cuz' faith is in between Yet I feel I want to flee to a place where I can blow with the breeze Flow with the streams Is it wrong of me to get what I want? Cuz' I know I'm giving all of me What's left of me is gone So before I make my way, pack my bags and leave this place, One last song before I lay, hey [Chorus:] This is history in the making [x4] I got my mom on the phone and I'm stalling Destiny's on the other line That's my calling If I can't walk then I'll be crawling Cuz' faith is my strength for this weak, impaired player, wheelchair ballin' So I can't stop, I've been through harsh winters with ripped in half socks, shorts, tank-tops Cruising through hell I know the flow's passed hot Fiend for a loud buzz cuz' this is my last shot So before I make my way, Pack my bags and leave this place, One last song before I lay, hey [Chorus:] This is history in the making [x4] [Bridge:] Gave everything I have for one chance to blow More than half my life and there's nothing else for me to show Losing is not an option And success is my thesis, I'm not swaying off the topic The man that controls the cockpit all the way I'ma take it I was never mistaken [Chorus:] This is history in the making [x4] This is history in the making, can I take it all the way? This is history in the making [x4] So many things that I want, do I let them go? I work so hard for this music, and if it's too much to ask then let me know

Above My Floor

AER "Aer"
[Chorus - Dave:] I never wanna know ya I think I see him walking Collide with the ghost above my floor High, headed up the corner I think I see him walking Say hi to the ghost I won’t become [Verse 1 - Carter:] He and I could fight all night But he is me, so get this right I’m torn inside but act so bright And who to be i can’t decide So I’ll roll the rest up, rid the pressure Diesel from forty, on top the dresser Inhale the smoke, I’ll clean the mess up Opaque hope, extreme measures Indulge in all types of pleasures Don’t talk to him I can explain it much better Imma medicate myself if I want to Not a level head and will say anything bout you Looking in the mirror finding someone to shout to The answer’s in the haze so I’ll figure it out soon I’m keeping up cuz I’m fast learner Tryna disregard my evil as the worlds turnin The ego in each of us wants to eat through the furnace And then heat up your house and just laugh it off as it’s burning [Chorus - Dave] [Verse 2 - Carter:] I’ve learned to pick quality over quantity When does confident become cocky? What if i told you that’s not me Hiding behind expensive liquor and kawasakis The diamond’s getting bigger I’m in the rough of the rockies Power trippin, tricked into giving the guy who brought me What he deserves, been on my nerves Despite it all i can find the courage I’m high in attic, so close to the angels But he’s in the basement playing games with the devil I’m tryna get out and see the world from all angles He only wants to stay in and polish up all his medals Spun out in the city makes it hard to say I’m stable Ain’t giving up for nothing no homie I won’t settle Crumbs crushed up on the old wooden table High above the problems is me having my head up

Cherry Came Too

THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN "Darklands"
When she walks towards me I feel something Crawl beneath my skin And all the electric stars are shining Beneath my skin and Cherry takes me to the place above With barbed wire kisses and her love We're going where the oceans blue Kick the dust and you can come too In the light of all my darkest mornings Things fall into place And all the soft orange coloured dawnings Fall into place and Cherry's scratching like a grain of sand The trigger itch in the killer's hand Me and cherry are so extreme Making love to the sound of a scream Oh cherry honey you got me stuck on a rope You got me running around With the fear in my head for you And I want you And I'll give you my head And all the things it said And I'll give you my thoughts If those things weren't lost And I'll give you my soul To beat it with your pole I'm going to give you my head You could kick it dead And I'll give you my head Come on and kick me dead Come on and push me down Come on and drag me down Oh cherry be bad Come on and kiss my head

The Walking Dead

JOHN HIATT "All Of A Sudden"
It's that mechanical motion Skin -tight when the nights are bloodless Lip-sync the latest notion From zombie drill instructors Throw out of all the parties Maybe it's time for me to bed Now his eyeball's runnin' Just like a razor down her leg CHORUS: Baby's joined the walking dead Up from her grave Another white slave Nothin' goes in or out of her head Never you mind Tryin' to find A real live girl in your bed She's joined the walking dead She likes this frenzy feeding She cuts across the dance floor Thinks she's the only one bleeding He cuts his teeth on girls like her Just a little more makeup 'Til she makes up for being used He hardly knows what he's saying She hardly knows how to refuse CHORUS She's walking With his eyes in your head With his tongue in your bed And your lips are swollen red From the kiss of the walking dead CHORUS
