I'm Alright

Original and similar lyrics
Today I met a man, sittin' on the corner He was holdin' out his hand, had a couple quarters That he saved up in a can, I think i heard him whisper that you'll never understand Damn, no place to call his home said he lives alone so he's forced to roam With a shopping cart filled to the top with every thing he owns A smile on his face, yep there he stood He was holdin' up sign sayin' life is good Man, I wonder what it'd be like, a day in his shoes I guess when you got nothin', you got nothin' to lose He said boy, don't you pity me, I'm still standin' tall As a matter of fact, I got it all I got life, I got love I got faith and that's enough We feel sorrow, we feel pain But there's sunshine after rain So I'm alright (you'll be fine, take it one day at time) So I'm alright (said you'll be fine, take it one day at time) Today I met a man makes a couple hundred grand Always stressin' out got 2 cell phones in his hand Lives the country club life, think he's on his 3rd wife Never makes it home for dinner cause he's workin' every night 5 cars in the garage, 4 he's never drivin' Always wantin' more than just the life that he's been given Gotta strange obsession with material possessions Now he's always poppin' Prozac to battle his depression He's got everything he's ever wanted, and he's always tryin' to flaunt it But now it's all comin' back to haunt him Mistaken want's important in life for all the pointless stuff For some people, everything's just not enough I got life, I got love I got faith and that's enough We feel sorrow, we feel pain But there's sunshine after rain So I'm alright (you'll be fine, take it one day at time) So I'm alright (said you'll be fine, take it one day at time) You gotta keep goin', never give it up You only live once, might as well live it up Every breath I take is a reason to believe That the finest things in life, came to me for free Said you gotta keep goin', never give it up You only live once, might as well live it up Every breath I take is a reason to believe That the finest things in life, came to me for free I got life, I got love I got faith and that's enough We feel sorrow, we feel pain But there's sunshine after rain So I'm alright (you'll be fine, take it one day at time) So I'm alright (said you'll be fine, take it one day at time) Yeah, you got, nothing to lose, haha

311 "Grassroots"
We were born in the seventies The rippin and rhyming and brethren see We're filling taste great In the old school I was eight Fot the new school I was late But in high school I was debate I rate in the great state of California I'm warning ya Je vais a la plage parce que le guignol est chouette! I kick nonsense in French tasty like Crepe Suzette I bet you gonna wanna try this but it takes niceness I like a beat that's unique and I like my head zooming And in my Continental you know that shit's booming With the diamond int eh back suicide doors You can look from here to eternity And never receive your morsel. Another tale of ordinary madness The girl who gave you her sex I heard was homeless say All I really wanna is to feel nirvana Won't you take me tonight and we just might find A bottle of wine and feel our nasty nature Your toung lickin' up my tounge Your radio pickin' up a smokey jazz love song Madness becomes you even though your Livin' life it's hard to exist when you're tempted By flesh you wanna bust through Beautiful legs in the bar there is poetry She bends and suspends and her ass Is a marvelous thing A dance dancin' at a club the Hereafter Who can't really dance but that doesn't really matter And she won't hear applause Cus your drunk and lost All light is gone Your arms spread like a cross And you're dreaming that the world Will soon fall apart Topless firl in your gaze Which is hazy Takes your dollar In the gutter without cigarettes Or wine your hungover I was warned of your normal Behaviour and felt My life was too short to Consider your wack self It's like this when you dip down And you are boxin' Reeling against the ropes and you Face some young Mexican Your scrappin' your kneck gets Snapped back your eyes have bled Your thinking' about a comeback But your takin' it to the head You little bastard Better watch you back Cuz we're after Your punk ass by God we're gonna jack it You're played out and small time And your show is over You're 'bout as lucky as a three leaf clover And your older ho bag sceezer In her droopy saggy skin Who thoughtshe was a model But in truth a never-has-been I'll slap that witch as if I were her pimp And my crew will attest to her fradulence

Olympus can't resist the goddess honest The kind you never/always take home to your mamas Accomplish what no other can treat you like no other man Understand this mad mind body you ain't seen in a woman My mommy posessed this passed this on/ dad made me strong played me mad songs growin up Told me I be the one well I want the one/levels deep and heart drum beat boom beat boom beat But complex properties of my mind keep em 10 steps behind /takin mad time to find a guy it ain't right Worthy of my lullaby it ain't right/ try to keep this shit inside it ain't right it ain't right All night I can drive you wild, the sex the intellect get respect fuck the cheddar/better bet I'm the next to get mine find mine it's alright but sometimes it hurts my mind (CHORUS) Word to God I'll be the best girl you ever got, I'll keep it so hot I'll just never stop I got the plot locked, I got no guns cocked And if you with me let me hear you say Nana I'm sure that this is more than you can handle This example/ coming from a girl placed high up on the mantle Hold a candle to it, sick of the predicament Tired of the bull thick headed, need a sedative to get at it, well I invented it. My case in point I would anoint you my prince Love you head toe to fingerprints all benefits laugh and count all our kids, make all our bids Butterfly kiss with our lids/Let's make it come all to this Gem at the precipice of the palace/ drink from my chalice Never be jealous, no malice, I'll be your ballast When winds blow on I'll stand strong When winds blow on I'll stand strong.

Jesus' Mom

David Wilcox
Wake up! she said, you dreaming fool, don't throw your life away. Because life's too short and you're too smart to want to hurt yourself that way. And what's this talk about the fellow man? Look, it's catch as catch can, understand? You muscle and struggle and get what you can or you'll never get anywhere at all, young man. And what's this talk about loving everybody and trying to be a neighbor and helping out your brother? Oh, fine and dandy, but you're getting a little carried away, is what she'd say. She said, I'm not saying that love ain't fine, but every little thing's got it's place and time. Now there's people out there who want what's mine, and they're going to try to take it away. So save your love for those who care, and buy some clothes and wash your hair. Just relax and don't you dare start dreaming about saving the world. And Jesus said, Yes mom.

Strange Denial

BAD RELIGION "No Substance"
A mutinous enemy carved a nascent country Sweat, blood, and valor Forms the grit of our history Beqeathed to everyone: Chance and free expression Substance was restrained And the spirit was broken I feel a strange denial Rythmic as a change Constance as time Lonely Insistent whispers Somber as a wave bye bye Searching for solution, without constitution Blackcoats by our sides Promising salvation Advocating dogma as tickets to hereafter Mortals in their prime With their desperate hands in the air Daunting Complex and burning Rythmic as change Constant as time Conflicts Craving approval Weighted as a murder trial Oh I feel a strange denial Correct is Consensus Everything else, nonsense Forward is the hope Forget recompense Peace and tranquility is only for the wealthy Dearth for the massses And inequality I feel a strange denial Rythmic as change Constant as time Lonely Insistent whispers Dissipating in the night Like a lone forgotten light And no one is helping me It's a strange denial
