Whalebones And Crosses

Original and similar lyrics
(Henry/Holdridge) Whalebones and crosses stand against the Arctic sky. The wind blows through the graveyard where our fallen fathers lie. Eternal snow that covers them, the shadows of the sun. The mighty struggle on the seas, a way of life is run. I'll sing for you my father, for the ancient sacred ways. How the hunter loved the hunted, how the night becomes the day. The circle of the mighty spirit keeps us in its fold. The warmth of understanding like a light shot through the cold. Then bring to me my people, touch them with your loving hands. Lead them from confusion, lead them back unto the land. For sickness seems to block their path, it clouds my people's eyes. The promise that an idle truth will reap a golden lie. Whalebones and crosses stand against the Arctic sky. The wind blows through the graveyard where our fallen fathers lie. The timeless hunt, a journey back to what we once came from. Compassion and nobility beneath the midnight sun. The mighty struggle on the seas, a way of life is run.

Flicker

AYRIA "Flicker"
I know you're suffering I'd like to change your fate But I sense a lack of trust in me I'll give you everything I give the weak man strength Eliminate what makes you weak Do you want to know where the wind blows? Do you feel the same when the winds change? Do you want to know where the wind blows, today? The story of your life Never get it right Sleepless through the night I will be there Spending all your time Defending what is right While afraid to take a side I won't be there Here we are again Thought you knew everything If you could only see the world through me I take the rich man's greed Then knock him down to me To fill his eyes with what he is Would you want to know where the wind blows? Do you feel the same when the winds change? Do you want to know where the wind blows, today? The story of your life Never get it right Sleepless through the night I will be there The weakest of your kind You're crippled and so blind Flickering, then dying I am not there Never know Where you are Where to go How far Never know (never know) Where you are (where you are) Flickering (flickering) Like a star I never thought you'd do the things you said you would You always wanted more than this small life could give Immortalized you God-sized you Live forever Now you've achieved it all And no one wants to compare Never know (never know) Where you are (where you are) Immortalized and God-sized Never know (never know) Where you are (where you are) Flickering (flickering) Like a star

The Lost Name Of God

Amorphis
============= (lyrics: E. Holopainen) (music: T. Koivusaari) As I sense their steel, As I see the mighty one, As we all gather once again the gods of war summon us... summon us North wind blows to our valley men with ships, with swords, with honour Their horses between flames, their dogs eating enemy childs, Our heavenly father, what is this mortality, do you see my mortal agony Look, I see the shield up high this must be the sign from my lord this can be my death - sentence what a fine day to die Taste of blood comes up high Wind blows hard, our men fall... one by one This oath claims me I must bleed for my generation Strong is the enemy, strong is my sword the hammer is rising I feel their cold steel Now when I leave this world I shall open the mighty oaken gate and we all shall gather once again

AESOP ROCK
1 of 4... My name is Ian Mathias Bavitz I was born in 1-9-7-6, at Biosfet hospital, located in Long Island, NY I am 6 foot, for I weigh 2-0-0 pounds I have brown hair and green eyes I enjoy writing songs, painting, movies and diner food I have two brothers, Chris and Graham and two parents, Paul and Jameija In august of 2-0-0-1 I went crazy.. This was originally not for public consumption This was made for four people... four people that literally saved my life They know who they are.. And ahhh I mean I could live to be a thousand years old and never re-pay them I don't think this song would pay for them But hopefully by putting it out, push the bank a little further.. This ain't a burner for the whips (no it isn't) This ain't even Aesop Rock fly earthworm demeanor (no it isn't) My name is Ian Mathias Bavitz and I was born in Long Island, New York Seventy Six, before Graham and after Chris... OK In August of 2001 my seemingly splinter-proof brain bone, scaffling imploded I kept it on the hush, but nearly tumbling to the cold hard concrete on near bodega trips for ciggaretes and soda, shook me to kasper Dizzy with a nothern chaser, motor sensory eraser Gorophobe tunnel vision, guilt, self loathing arrangements Rose rapidly outta fog I'd never fished in that abates three separate foreign men's While I seems to hook lines and syncro simple fishing Simple primitive self taught, easing of soul, mind and body but the symptoms rejected my cave-man modus operandi So now it's one fish belly up, through medicated mol edge Shrinks that get 250 an hour for awkward silence And, I'd be lying if I said all of this made even the slightest fragment of sense to me That's frail... Simply put I don't know what happened, or what's stillhappening I literally feel like I'm teetering on the blunt edge of my sanity JAMIE, I killed the robots and I'm sorry Broke down in front of you, embarrassed but you lent a heart and hand that only you could you're one of my best friends and yes I'd take that bullet for you That's my word, which is about all I have left TONY, I know you know you crazy, 'cause you told me but that did never bother you, I hold you as my brother 'til death And I got your back if ever the drunk goblin step for makin' a cat laugh, when I was walking with the dead KATHERINE, mother figure, older sister, concerned be a limits Letting me know I wasn't the only one with this Continuous offers for vacation, Chicago visits Talked me to repair of a head full of broken pistons RIYAH, for the late night movie rentals and the company I needed An' you knew it, but I just wouldn't admit it You listened to me brag about my issues for hours Offer incredible advice, gave me a hug when I was finished Am I a jack of all trades? Nope... I like to write songs tho' Are they good? I dunno.. But I could tell you that I only write shit down when I believe it So take this how you want, but know I mean it I want you all to know that I'm scared Now my fuckin' crooked soul never faced a monster like the last few months Never in my whole life... I wish I could explain this better (I can't) But the pieces won't formulate it to anything even close to cohesive So I guess this is my feeble way to thank you Four soldiers that extended something sacred off the purity of kindness I owe you all my life and please don't argue with that statement 'Cause without y'all I may not have a life to offer, take it Thank you I wish I could explain this better. (Thank you) I'm sorry for burdening your pleasures. (Thank you) I love you all with all that's left of me. (Thank you) For helping try to kill what made a mess of me. (Thank you) Somehow, someway. (Thank you) I'ma get you back someday. (Thank you) Just gotta figure this all out... So.. I guess it is kind of funny when you look headed from a step back How one man can literally buckle under the same pressures Other men operate normally under I have soaked this out from all angles, walking through time I have been over everything in my head, still I can't think anymore But I guess some times, when you can't breathe, there are people there to breathe for you I am lucky enough to have those people around me Thank you for helping me to not die Thank you for helping me to not die Pocket full of pennies, and a soul gone tilt Cockpit full of memories and a dream full of guilt

Don't Look Down

HOODIE ALLEN "Making Waves"
Yeah You're crashing in right now It's Making Waves By your new favorite crew Hoodie Allen We gonna start it off right now With out further ado We're coming live to you People start to listen and they wonder if the beat break I'll be rolling rich even if I rock the cheap skates Life's a yearbook, never get a retake And all the good times going faster than a speed date You wonder why we late? Good question Never thought we'd make it here now who'd guess it? New lesson: Treat these moments like a blessin I'm trynna find direction and you trynna GPS it And no BSing on this roller coaster we thrilled We just cut the line trynna get the seat filled And now you're strapped in acting like we chilled I know you love it when we go and let the beat build We feel better then we ever been I need to clear my head excedrin I'm taking off to somewhere big and I be hoping that you getting in But if you don't I know I'll see you when I get home They say the road is just your favourite place to get grown So for the people that I dissed and I led on You can be the people that I miss when I head on I feel so high tonight I don't wanna see the ground Don't look down, don't look down Life can be so simple When living in the clouds Don't look down Don't look down Ain't no better time than the present Maybe if we never count the future And I promise if I said it then I meant it And I never meant to be the one to shoot your Dreams down, see clouds and the sounds just opened up And if they looking for a change then I hope it's us I know it's tough, so is anything that's worth it I'm making it my business to deserve it I feel so high tonight I don't wanna see the ground Don't look down Don't look down Life can be so simple When living in the clouds Don't look down Don't look down
