You Say That The Battle Is Over

Original and similar lyrics
(Mallet) And you say that the battle is over, and you say that the war is all done. Go tell it to those with the wind in their nose who run from the sound of the gun. And write it on the sides of the great whaling-ships, or on ice floes where conscience is tossed. With the wild in their eyes, it is they who must die, and it's we who must measure the loss. And you say that the battle is over, and finally the world is at peace. You mean no one is dying, and mothers don't weep, or it's not in the papers, at least. There are those who would deal in the darkness of life, there are those who would tear down the sun. And most men are ruthless, but some will still weep when the gifts we were given are gone. Now the blame cannot fall on the heads of a few, it's become such a part of the race. It's eternally tragic when that which is magic be killed at the end of the glorious chase. From young seals to great whales, from waters to wood, they will fall just like weeds in the wind. With fur coats and perfumes and trophies on walls, what a hell of a race to call men. And you say that the battle is over, and you say that the war is all done. Go tell it to those with the wind in their nose who run from the sound of the gun. And write it on the sides of the great whaling-ships, or on ice floes where conscience is tossed. With the wild in their eyes, it is they who must die, and it's we who must measure the loss. With the wild in their eyes, it is they who must die, and it's we who must measure the loss.

Sheep

PINK FLOYD "Animals"
Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air You better watch out There may be dogs about I've looked over Jordan and I have seen Things are not what they seem. What do you get for pretending the danger's not real Meek and obedient you follow the leader Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel What a surprise! A look of terminal shock in your eyes Now things are really what they seem No, this is no bad dream. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want He makes me down to lie Through pastures green he leadeth me the silent waters by With bright knives he releaseth my soul He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places He converteth me to lamb cutlets For lo,m he hath great power and great hunger When cometh the day we lowly ones Through quiet reflection and great dedication Master the art of karate Lo, we shall rise up And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water. Blasting and bubbling I fell on his neck with a scream Wave upon wave of demented avengers March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream. Have you heard the news The dogs are dead! You better stay home And do as you're told Get out of the road if you want to grow old.

Connemara

Green Fiddler's
Speaker: While I'm sitting here The waves of the sea are lapping Against the wild shores of Connemara The sky breaks Dazzling light pierces through Down to the water Giving forth a thousand reflections of silver So that I have to close my eyes And then together with the vile wind I fly away to all the places I've never seen He said his eyes where looking queer Can't you take me out of here? Can't you see the sky of Connemara? This is how his warning goes: Beware the night a whirlwind blows Better leave this town for Connemara We hit the road, we hitched a ride The morning faded into night But we were on our way to Connemara Asylum was a basic right But socialism lost the fight Thousands headed down to Connemara In my imagination I can feel the wild wind blow The morning breeze will wipe away my fear In my imagination I can hear the howling sea The cottage on the shore belongs to me And when we reached the Emerald Isle We stayed in Dublin for a while But soon we reached the cliffs of Connemara It's just the place I want to be Shining in my fantasy Can't you take me back to Connemara Connemara, Connemara on my mind Connemara, where even the rain shines Connemara, leaving all my troubles behind Connemara on my mind

Under The Grayclouded Winter Sky

AMON AMARTH "Sorrow Throughout The Nine Worlds"
[Music/Lyrics: Amon Amarth] Grey clouds - cover the winter sky Cold snow - falls like autumn leaves to the ground The icy wind Pierces the skin of waiting warriors Like spears Will pierce their bodies in battle Frosted Beards on pale grey faces Eyes of death Are burning with rage Glancing across the fields of Tyr In the early morning light Grey clouds - cover the winter sky Cold snow - falls like autumn leaves to the ground The icy wind Pierces the skin of waiting warriors Like spears Will pierce their bodies in battle War cries break the silent wait Charging warriors rush to kill Swords are swung in the air The gods of war are called Vikings with fire in soul Clash on the open field Slaying with powerful strokes The snow is turning red Hooves gallop the plains Warlords on horsebacks Ride into battle With a thunderous roar The storm wind of death Blows across the field Sweeping with it Everything in its way So the battle settles Alone stands just one man Under the grey-clouded winter sky - alone. . .

Muerte

JEDI MIND TRICKS "Violent By Design"
[Ikon the Hologram] A to the eye of the storm Rappers just battle me for the glory It gets gory They shitty like suppositories, that's the end of the story Bury his body in Missouri Banish the apparatus of Gladys to crematories My territory, perimeter of pergatory Stingy in winches of vicious, malicious inflictions upon your click Circulatory Causing head spasms Rip through your motherfucking temple like Phantasm Hologram has 'em and walks through the holy arches Left you in the forest with your carcass in the harness Death is upon us We slam like Adrian Adonis Swarm onto pure blood like malicious pirahnas Islamic farmers, no contender is parallel When I'm on paper, devestate 'em like 7L So where I dwell, without question rattles the league Left you in a vessel with severe battle fatigue Before you leave I insist you listen to more raps Before I saw cats, making weapons out of your thorax [break] [Jus Allah] I inhale toxins Drunk off blood from dead cops and The watchman, that kill us in this maze we locked in Side corba clutch, only truth can sober us Wild 'cause we know there's no Jehovah watching over us Only 10 percent that's controlling us Try to take our souls from us, while the state patrolling us Caged in we break barriers, change to new areas Dodgin' the pits and chariots out to bury us Jus Allah don't make threats Leave your fuckin' necks clipped Had you speakin' the manual alphabet Seeing' me is death not repeated or done twice I laugh as I cast the first stones at Christ Joint in ace bands, you move to Graceland and Satan Mics spray then, bury flesh in wasteland Infect you Inject you with the gunpowder pegs Indent your forehead with hot lead Whether in the abode of the dead Or resting in the Zions A lost day chasing the doe, like wild lions Unchained tearin' your flesh we unfed Flyin' through, like birds we takin' your daily bread

The Tree Of Life And Death

Disembowelment
standing upon the portal where my eyes have become weary, the cold winds from the south bring ghastly fragments of the forgotten land, where, once, the spirits stood along the desolate shore to disappear into the silenced murk, some by the seven gated Thebes in the land of Kadmos There, for these, the end of death was misted about them , as my eyes slowly descend, the dust transcends into my frail structure, the wind, the cold wind breaks my complete silence, the portal for which I stand upon collapses, no fear I shall feel, transcendence into the peripheral, and there they have their dwelling place and hearts free of sorrow, in the islands of the blessed, by the deep swirling stream of the ocean , the hypnotised sound of Boetian harps, created by the force of the spirits, the faraway lands no longer seem so distant, nirvanaesque serenity as the hills become unclouded, the spirits embrace my soul, as I envision the neutral spectrum before me, the harp echoes and echoes and..... my wings take me to the bewilderment
