In The Grand Way

Original and similar lyrics
(Sommers) In the grand way, she loves me. The way she holds me close to rest with me. And to know she is my life to me, my empty days are done, my running days are run, for the first time I love the morning. Burning sundowns, colored autumn trees, mountain rivers, country rivers put my mind at ease. And to realize such perfect harmony, standing in the dawn of a new day coming on, I'm looking for no tomorrow. I can still hear the lonely sound, the engines of the midnight freight train northward bound. And to feel my life, my life slowly losing ground. I never quite understood though I see it for the good and it seems like I've just been dreaming. The way she holds me close to comfort me. My empty days are done, my running days are run, for the first time I love the morning. For the first time I love the morning, for the first time, the first time.

How Can It Be

Count Raven
Peace love understanding, was the cry of the mid sixties Visions in acid showed the way, we smiled at one another Colours of the rainbow filled my head, and I loved a beautiful princess We lived for a better day for a world where we loved aech other The freaks they really showed the way, Gods children of the new tomorrow Fight for a new society, or You will die in sorrow This is a hippies thriumph, and at the same time He fears the mistake of all youth One mistake we made and so do You All youth think they live forever Life is short runs away from You, and You have no time to hate your neighbour Think of yourself all the way, was the cry of the eighties Corrupted minds ruled a whole decade, let's hope it turns in the nineties This is your father speaking and as every parent I'll fear for my youth So sick tired, of hearing same cry The youth they don't understand us, they don't hear what we say The younger says that they don't listen, but You don't give them a chance to try Use communication, on this I pray Looking at the world today, no one loves each other Hate instead of love we want they say, from the cup of madness You are drinking Spitting in the face of love, then you spit in the face of creation If You want a better world today, then face it now start thinking This is a hippies thriumph, and at the same time He fears the mistake of all youth

King's Crossing

Elliot Smith "From A Basement On The Hill"
The King's Crossing was the main attraction Dominoes falling in a chain reaction The scraping subject ruled by fear he told me Whiskey works better than beer The judge is on vinyl, decisions are final And nobody gets a reprieve And every wave is tidal - if you hang around You're going to get wet I can't prepare for death any more than I already have All you can do now is watch the shells The game looks easy that's why it sells Frustrated fireworks inside your head Are going to stand and deliver talk instead The method acting that pays my bills Keeps the fat man feeding in beverly hills I got a heavy metal mouth that hurls obscenity And I get my check from the trash treasury Because I took my own insides out It don't matter cos I have no sex life All I want to do now is inject my ex wife I've seen the movie and I know what happens It's a Christmas time And the needles on the tree A skinny Santa is bringing something to me His voice is overwhelming, but his speech is slurred And I only understand every other word 'Open your parachute and grab your gun Falling down like an omen, a setting sun Read the part and we turn out fine It's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive But I don't care if I fuck up I'm going on a date with a rich white lady Ain't life great? Give me one good reason not to do it...so do it This is a place where time reverses Dead men talk to all the pretty nurses Instruments shine on a silver tray Don't let me get carried away Don't let me get carried away Don't let me be carried away

ATMOSPHERE "Headshots: SE7EN"
[Mr. Gene Poole] The loveliest sound coming out to yo' system I spark to get y'all off to a good start Show me some heart, walk through my hood after dark, dodging poison darts Catch one in the left lung I hope the Cherokee parks by itself tracksmart Act like you part of this you'll find yourself victim of the rhyme bombardment Weak shit, I have the tolerance I write the best rhymes in my sleep Dreamland beats and freelance techniques fuckin' up the sheets Ink spots, puss spot niggas tryin to stop this Think not get ? and listen for your bank knock We do a lot of this activity in my city Get a job in my world, join a futuristic commitee Weak assistant of three had to be persistantly equal In order for it to work out in a balance Which comes down to a question of natural talents Can't keep those gifts isolated in tablets It's not about rap ballads, or who can flow the best What kind of dressing you gonna have with your life salad? (Hmmm...) French...yes..thank you very much..On to the next [Slug] Yo, you rappers elude me but that's nothing new I still stick to my duty, to kick something true Still if you wanna boo me we can do this in a circle of peers Tell your bitch to kick a beat so I can work you to tears I've made a full of strangers throw hands in the air (Man) I know you sense danger, I can see it in your stare (Man) Don't provoke anger when the mic's in my hand, Cause if I get that spark I'm quick to rip apart your plans Yo Ant, let's keep this one accesible Take the fruits that wanna test these bros and make 'em vegetables Just to let 'em know that the course tastes pure Pissed off all the local rappers so it's time to go on tour I'm sure, so I never break a sweat when a fate steps Instead I break that snake's neck and take his breath Half the time half of 'em don't catch the rhymes They need they friends with to show 'em how we wax behinds Please fool, hella stupid I'm assuming probably Couldn't even rock your own family reunion and I'm through with the politicket Rhymesayers on a mission, watch the following thinking, motherfucker! [Mr. Gene Poole] I stick two fingers through his nostrils and a thumb through his mouth And swing em' like a bowling ball make 'em strike the fuck out Take a hook and stab it through his back and curve it around his spine and throw em out By the lili pads and wait for a hit on my line (Damn!) Cause this rap shit makes me wanna catch niggas like catfish Chop 'em up into steaks and sop 'em up off the plate with biscuits and rice I put the hand of the one that likes to hold mics in a vice Make sure he never writes in his life When it's time for me to display (Stay the FUCK out the way) And when its time for you to DJ you going play what I say The word for the day is "Fette" cash lessons Get ready to mash when I give the word don't ask questions Pack yo shit, dont smack yo bitch Leave peaceably cause these'll be vital elements of livin' feasibly ? the urban ? mocha latte, Saint Paul nigga rocking the uptown partay like coca angel vatte I provide that mental rush and that physical feeling like yo' whole worlds being dusted Be hushed when you see me in deep thought Hand clutched interrupt and you just might be caught then crushed [Slug] Yo, yo, I quit fronting, really-really I know wrong and right, wrote my songs, shed light to promote a longer life When I reflect that night, I seek light in the confusion I stick to the music and skip the baggage of delusion Managed to come through and I'm in the minimalism, yo The damage is due it's time to climb to catch a vision Yo, I've had it with you, and the terms which I work cause it matter to you The flight's cursed, I might burst challenging who? Balance the mood, yo Stress, let's gather the crew, Commence to wreck shit then exit, I'd rather that you Throw your hands in the air And if that's too demanding you can stand there and stare

George

Jude "430 N. Harper Ave."
George died in the fifth grade No one ever knew why He was out selling lemonade On the Fourth of July and he died Sister Claire said that he was An angel on earth She stood there and she told us She had clearly rehearsed every verse Of the lies that tie you down I've forgotten my first love I haven't seen her since when There's a bum on the corner He thinks that I'm his best friend, we pretend He says the rapture is anyday That's when God's coming around Although perhaps he should stay away They'll run him right out of town, like a clown Chorus: With the lies that tie you down There are times when a man feels That it's him against the world There are times when a man steals From the love of his girl There are days when a beast dies Long before the gun And there are days when a crow flies Straight into the sun, to be done
