Staying Above Ground

Original and similar lyrics
It's pouring I'm stuck here All alone I don't know what to do Should I use the phone? The power went out Can I go any where? Should I go? I don't even care If the answer's 'NO' Well sorry Too late I already left [chorus] I'm stuck here outside Can't get back in Even if I can It's all flooded I'm gasping I'm losing air What I'm trying to do Is Swin over there I'm trying to swim around But most of all is Staying above ground The water's getting higher I'm getting tired I'm sinking lower And swimming slower Should I give up? Should I just stop breathing? Should I Start dieing? Should I stop swimming? People are coming But my bodies stinging People don't even notice me They just leave I wish I was free [chorus] I was almost too late I made it through I almost lost my life Without any help of you You were nothing But I was something Something special I was special [chorus] Something Special I was special Something lucky I was lucky

The Captain And The Kid

ELTON JOHN "The Captain And The Kid"
I've been out on this road some Can't help feeling I've been showing my friends around I've seen it growing from next to nothing Into a giant eating up your town Called up the tealeaves and the tarots Asked the gypsy what she sees in the palm of our hands She saw a mountain and wild deer running A crazy kid becoming a better man But we stuck around for the fireworks Waiting to explode Shaped our futures, you a tumbleweed And me on a yellow brick road Pleasing the people some of the time For better or for worse An urban soul in a fine silk Suit And a heart out west in a Wrangler shirt [Chorus:] And you can't go back and if you try it fails Looking up ahead I see a rusty nail A sign hanging from it saying "Truth for sale" And that's what we did No lies at all just one more tale About the Captain and the Kid We've been missing at times in action Can't imagine what he said he might do for you The devil got to come to the party sometimes But he never got to wear our shoes Oh we've conjured up what we created Way back then when I was standing up in six-inch heels Now you're riding off into the sunset And I'm still spinning like a Catherine wheel But we stuck around for the battle Waiting for a plan To turn you into the Brown Dirt Cowboy And me into a rocket man It pleases the people some of the time Digging into our roots But I got a brand new pair of shoes And you're on a horse in old cowboy boots [Chorus 2x]


PAPA ROACH "Old Friends From Young Years"
Slowly Breaking down feeling weak Thinkin about the higher ground that I wish to seek For safeness For realness I'll break it down simple for my people to hear this Cause my shit is for realness For my people to hear this Six years of age when I first got my rage Father broke out Then I turned a new page of my life Changed Then it was crazy Thanx to my mom cause she stuck by to raise me Since I was a baby She stuck by to raise me There is no sound Coming up from the ground No way Not this time Buried deep inside There is no evidence Feelings that I hide Sometimes are too intense Silent In the dark I think I'm nutty Vicious swords of emotion slash And leave me bloody I said you fucking die

Tragedy At The Railway Station

Dead Infection "A Chapter Of Accidents"
A ordinary railway-station. Platforms, tracks, people with their luggage. A train arrives. It's 30 minutes late. But passengers have finally seen it coming up. Compartments fill up quickly. After 10 minutes there are no free seats left. Some people have to stand in the corridor. After a while the train leaves. It moves faster and faster. All the same time a 47-years-old-woman runs along a platform. She's a bit late, but tries to open the wagon's door and get in. After 2 seconds the woman trips against her big bag and gets under the train. Its wheels cut her legs up to her tighs. the woman screams, but the wheels crush her cranium and chest. Now comes the silence broken only by the engine's blast.
