Jesus Loves You

Original and similar lyrics
They say that Jesus loves you What about me They say that money breaks you I still wanna see They say you're only half alive Till you give extra whitening a try Well i wanna seee, I wanna see What can you do for me Showing ta-tas on the TV is OK I wanna be OK,too Having my pictue in a magazine makes me special How special are you They say if i donate, even I Can buy a lot in heaven before i die Well I wanna see, I wanna see What can u do for me I want someone else to pack my lunch Gonna get get someone else to pull the punch Pay a psychic for romance Gonna pay a priest for a... Will u give me a second chance Will u give me a secong chance They say abortion will send u straight to a firey hell That is if the fanatics don't beat satin to the kill It's not what i can do for anybody It's what there body can do for me Well I wanna see, I wanna see What can u do for me They say that Jesus loves u What about me

End Of An Era

Pinkerton Thugs
Well some kid got the lock down 'Cause he got flip with an officer No you don't do that in this town Unless you can bail yourself out Some kids got the kick down Fightin' straights from Fenway Park But who was in the right now And who still feels the scars? Whoah, pick yourself up now, lets go Now when we come to your town Ain't no one gonna be a thug But we're gonna have a lot of words now So ya tough hoods listen up I seen ya drinkin' down the river I seen ya fightin' at the shows I seen em crawl from every niche around And then I've seen em go These are the times And I don't care how it happens Things just gotta change Are you in it for a lifetime Are you giving back what you take Is what I'm saying sinking in Or is it just another wasted day Theres one thing that they got that we ain't got Its the long arm of the law When the mace came out I clutched the ground Then they kicked me up some more Pick it up punk In the bear white walls of the fish factory I worked all day just to make ends meet Cut and gut and pack it up That will never get you far They got me workin' all day I spent two years in a factory With fumes so thick it hurt to breathe Destroyed my throat broke my back I ain't never going back They got me workin' all day They get you in when you're down and out Your blood and sweat is running out One things for sure its plain to see I don't wanna work in a factory They got me workin' all day You'll hear the blood hounds bark And they'll lay me stiff and stark I'm gagged and bound six foot in the ground With a bullet in my heart But never say die though they'll try to destroy you They can strangle hope with the hangman's rope But we feel no stranglehold And never forget they hanged Captain John Brown Though we lost a man we came back again With a force one hundred fold Let me tell you 'bout police They want a piece of me Their hate is a beast that lives and breathes And fed by the bourgeoisie But never say die though they try to destroy you They can strangle hope with a hangman's rope But we feel no stranglehold And never forget our brothers in Braintree Though we lost a man we came back again With a force one hundred fold And never forget out Haymarket martyrs Though we lost out men we came back again With a force one hundred fold Theres something in your blood for revolution But I think that your blood is running cold Will time really tell When theres no hope left to sell Or will despair take its toll You bet your ass the lambs will keep on crying If the the wolf is still circling the fence You think you've seen the way, but by the light of day You've only reached another dead end Has your dream slipped through your fingers Or maybe it wasn't really there Or maybe part of growing up Is losing touch with you've loved And finding a new reason to care This story starts out spray painted on a wall Its been there for decades As the cigarette burns the world still turns While the vodka numbs the pain And everyone's got a sob story And the sigh is always the same When you turn out the pockets of your dirty jeans And find two bucks to your name And everyone's got somewhere to go And got somethin' to do I watch you millin' around all over this town While i kick a stone or two These six strings can be bullets if ya got something to say And if ya make a living off of telling them off Then I'd say you won the game Well just about four years ago there was no one to be found Now theres anger in four hundred eyes and fresh boots on the ground Now this story ends spray painted on a wall Its still there to this day You pass it on your way to work As the paint it starts to fade No one is givin' nothin' there ain't one damn thing for free So spring to life like a switchblade knife, its time they started to bleed Another story, out with the old, in with the new, hope and glory You and me we always hit it off well Always had that gleam in our eyes the days were ours to sell You'd hit me up for a buck but we never had a dime So we jumped the subway in town on the Red Line I remember We were never off our feet kickin' stones down on the street We got arrested more than once before we hit the age eighteen My folks untied the knot, your old man got a job in New York You picked up habbits, I picked up the guitar We used to steal a lot Then catch a show off the Kenmore stop But I felt I robbed the most When that poison hit your heart Should have never seen you off Should have been right there when you nodded off But you told me you weren't doing nothing hard I remember seeing you two weeks before you died I swear to christ you had that gleam still in your eye And now I'm runnin' But I'm runnin' all alone When I'm done runnin' I'll burn out and fade away with you For a wage of copper they'll make you rich in gold And thats what you got if you got control But if you got nothin' you ain't got no hope 'Cause everybody knows where the money goes A mans gotta work if he wants to live But is a life of labor for the highest bid A life worth livin' oh tell me if it is Cause I wanna know when to cash in They don't know your fury, can't hear you shout No matter how loud you holler, they'll drown you out No fist of ours has any clout If a fist of theirs can knock you out Oswald is in the library But he's got the face of an 'injun' cheif Buying Manhattan for twenty six beads I was lookin' at my watch just the other day It said doomsday is just a couple years away That ain't much time to halt the crime of whores Theres no more heroes, theres no more justice White collar crime from the office In my state you make sixteen grand To even camp in poverty land What if you're only makin' twelve Then where you gonna dwell They made me buy my food with stamps Meanwhile reservations die Capital don't care if your skin is red or white We got crooks in power in the USA Modern day whiskey, green paper cocaine The pied piper had a parade Led the founders to their grave All thats left is a land soaked with guilt and blood I ain't never been out there But I bet its the same as here Hope got cancelled years ago For the Ronald Reagan show They're the real mohegan clan Not us spikes in whitey land They were first to live without the law There ain't no reason anymore There ain't no spirit anymore There ain't no hope anymore There ain't no glory anymore Goldman, Debs, and Parsons Must be rolling in their graves The way this movement behaves So if you believe in freedom, well I believed in you That together we would see a brighter day There ain't no turning back no more There ain't nowhere to hide no more There ain't no heroes anymore There ain't no justice anymore They think they know whats best for you But have they walked a mile in your boots This scene is me this scene is you We're the wheels that make it turn Went down to Kenmore the other day Where us punks used to hand The Rats boarded up, its been bought out Theres not a whisper where we used to shout We're all in this Together We may never get anywhere Yeah somedays I don't wanna care But once your eyes are open they can't be shut At least we're tryin' thats goof enough I haven't lost my edge I haven't lost my faith We still need to overthrow this state I still hate the rich I still hate the cops I still hate the clubs that rip us off Theres a sun settin' on the horizon And we're running full speed with guns Some make it and others get burnt up So we're gonna make sure we're the ones With the one way ticket outta here 'Cause we been twenty years down We want guitars not a suit or shovel To get out of vampire town Don't tread on me 'Cause we're sick and we're tired And we're running out of fuel So take this song as a so long 'Cause you need us we don't need you We ain't gonna work for you, no You're gonna get nothin' done now Sittin' front a TV screen So don't complain when we march through your town If you miss the train when it leaves Get out anyway that you can now Burn the pavement under your feet Come out of hiding the dust is clearing Ain't no one singing defeat The agony of youth no it never did me good 'Cause all the glory never had the meaning that it should Never again will I see through those eyes Never again will I have you by my side Never Again I wanna call you a brother we'll be there for each other And call it all out own, we'll call it all our own Well one thing thats for certain They'll draw the final curtain But you'll never fight alone You'll never fight alone Well it's 1997, just about a quarter past eleven Nobody sits at home cause the rocks about to roll The Citgo sign with it's neon fire is fryin' all the suits While they're snortin' business up their nose, we're scuffin up our boots The downtown beat pours onto the street of the ground level Skeleton nation, but the high brow cannot hear it cause they ain't turned into the station All the common kids down on Comm. Ave have quite a lot to say But there ain't an ear to listen 'cause their turn is so far away Another kid with a broken heart An old beat up six string guitar Last train stop better get off At the end of an era Ghetto blast goes 1-2-3-4 If you're sick of being poor And the rebel beat beats on At the end of an era The elder ghosts are in the square As johnny fresh cut chops off his hair Butchy's black dreads flow all over town As black souls jive to the reggae sound When black and white dance together all night It ain't gonna make the papers When red blood fell from black and white lips They pinned it ghetto hatred The Mission Hill kids have got a mission It's called stayin' alive Its the calm before the storm In an ethnic jail tonight All right ready to prowl? Hey I seen it man They come from every walk of life From every edge of town They got gasoline in their veins Best walk on the other side of the street man They got venom eyes The Mission Hill kids, the Savin Hill pack The Cambridge campers, the Sommerville house The Charlestown town boys, suburban youth They're idlin' high They're blendin' in with the bricks I know you seen us before I've seen you ignore us But we don't forget a face man And we don't soon forgive...

Wings For Wheels (Thunder Road)

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "Greetings from Asbury Park"
The screen door slams, Christine's (Angelina's) dress waves Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays Roy Orbison singing for the lonely (Hey) that's me (babe) and I want you only Don't turn me home again I just can't face myself alone (in that mirror) again tonight Don't run back inside, you know just what I'm here for So you're scared and you're thinking That maybe you (we) ain't that young anymore Show a little faith (well woman) there's magic in the night You ain't a beauty but hey (baby, ah) you're alright And that's alright with me This old Ford she's gonna overheat Make up your mind girl I gotta get her back out on the street I know you're lonely like me so baby don't try and fake it I'm no prince and I can't lay the stars at your feet But I got this old car and she's pretty tough to beat There's plenty of room in my front seat, baby if you wanna take it Oh roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair It's like the rushing touch, the dirty wings them highway Angels wear Well tonight we're gonna find out how it feels I'm gonna trade in your wings - for wheels Climb in back, heaven's waiting down on the tracks Ah, mama, come take my hand (Well now try hard Chrissie to understand) We're gonna ride all the way to the promised land Oh I'm gonna dance all the way, dance all the way (Babe if you're born with nothing in your hands Hey it's your only chance) Well I don't know but baby I've been told There's something waiting for us, down that dirty road Oh take a chance, take a chance, take a chance (Oh I wish you would come So leave what you've lost, leave what's grown old on Thunder Road) Well now I bought this guitar and I learned how to make it talk I got my car parked out back if you're ready to take that long walk >From your front porch to my front seat Well I think we could take it all babe, just you and me Climb in back baby, the ride's for free Oh come take my hand, we're gonna ride all the way to the promised land We'll dance all the way Oh baby I don't know but I've been told There's something waiting for us, down that dirty road If we take our chance, take our chance Now the season's over and I feel it getting cold I wish I could take you to some sandy beach where we'd never grow old Ah but baby you know that's just jive But tonight's bustin' open and I'm alive Oh do (baby) what you can to make me feel like a man But this 4/4/2's gonna overheat Make up your mind girl, I gotta get her back out on the street I know you're lonely like me, oh so don't fake it And maybe I can't lay the stars at your feet But I got this old car and she's pretty tough to beat There's plenty of room in my front seat Oh if you think you can make it, climb in (So Christine climb in) This is town full of losers and baby I was born to win


Cardigans "First Band On The Moon"
Look at all these losers you find them everywhere they're fucked up and annoying but somehow you seem to care It's easier to laugh but something makes you stick around you can't watch from above and keep your ten toes in the sand You wish that you were special I'm just like you Close your eyes that'll be the day you'll find those lies Fold your ears that'll be the day that you will hear that'll be the day you get back home It's lonely to be strange and you would never tell that you're one of these itches you know it much too well losers are your weakness they will always touch your heart you're touching me as well 'cause I have always been a part You wish that you were special I'm just like you


MATCHBOX 20 "Yourself Or Someone Like You"
She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in And I don't know if I've ever been really loved By a hand that's touched me, well I feel like something's Gonna give And I'm a little bit angry, well This ain't over, no not here, not while I still need you Around You don't owe me, we might change Yeah we just might feel good [chorus] I wanna push you around, I will, I will I wanna push you down, I will, I will I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted I will She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me Like I'm a little untrusting when I think that the truth is Gonna hurt ya And I don't know why you couldn't just stay with me You couldn't stand to be near me When my face don't seem to want to shine Cuz it's a little bit dirty well Don't just stand there, say nice things to me I've been cheated I've been wronged, and you You don't know me, I can't change I won't do anything at all [chorus] Oh but don't bowl me over Just wait a minute well it kinda fell apart, things get so Crazy, crazy Don't rush this baby, don't rush this baby [chorus]


Chorus: Ring before you come around Ring I might be gettin down Ring and I will open up my door to you So, ring I might be on the phone Ring or wanna be home alone Ring you cant turn up when you want to boy So ring So you like me Well I like you to And there's something strange That makes me wanna get with you But your player you tell me players have rules Well thats fine by me Cos I got one or two So I tell you how it's gonna be If you wanna kick in with me you got to Chorus Now you can understand That I'm no fool But you wanna have your cake And eat it to Well that's ok It's one down with today So if it's good for you It's gotta be good for me So I tell you how it's gonna be If you wanna kick in with me you got to Chorus You might not think I'm a lady (but your wrong) cos I'm all that and more No one is gonna treat me how they want to so before you come and knock in at my door You have got to Chorus x3
