Trail Of Tears

Original and similar lyrics
(Handley) No more beautiful moons may we spend on our land, in the north the scarlet council talks of war. And the long knives have massacred the tribes and burned corn, we're not welcome in our homeland anymore. There will be a trail of tears, there will be a trail of pain. Jackson will have the Mississippi and the twenty-dollar bill, but for us the trail is all that will remain. No more songs of the hunters on the buffalo plain, no more smoke from sacred fires touch these hills. And the numbers of the people grow fewer every mile and our children will not learn The Great Spirit's ways. There will be a trail of tears, there will be a trail of pain. Jackson will have the Mississippi and the twenty-dollar bill, but for us the trail is all that will remain. On the streets of Rapid City, on the road to Wounded Knee, there is whiskey for forgetting every thing. But the old ones say there may be time learning from each other the way that it had once been meant to be. But there is still a trail of tears, there is still a trail of pain. Jackson has got the Mississippi and the twenty-dollar bill but for us the trail of tears is all that will remain. Jackson has got the Mississippi and the twenty-dollar bill, but how long will the trail of tears remain?

On The Trail Of Tears

Ikon "Flowers for the Gathering"
You will dry your tears now You will cry no more The sadness you are feeling You won't feel any more You are not to blame For the trail of tears The journey begins now With the death of your friend A new moon is with us To shed light where darkness falls His time had ended He will return soon Reasons for this madness Beyond both you and I The truth it comes so slowly It ends all too soon How could you have known That he'd give it all away So what have we done To choose your fate How do you feel When your dreams come tumbling down Do you feel responsible Do you take the blame In this final hour He gave it all away To look beyond the reasons There is a sense of hope I know what you're feeling The pain he put you through But the time has come To forget the past And lay to rest All the bitter memories There is a reason It's beyond you and I There is a reason Beyond your trail of tears For The Gathering by Chris McCarter Michael Carrodus

Trail Of Tears

Halford (Rob Halford) "Crucible"
Such desperation Left you in shame This bitter harvest Bearing all the blame Man will never end your suffering Stealing all your years God is with you but won't save you From your Trail of Tears From this oblivion Seek dignity Just human cargo Crying to be free Man will never end your suffering Stealing all your years God is with you but won't save you Change it Gonna change it - change it Greed of man has pushed you over Feeding on the fears Poverty will always prosper On your Trail of Tears Man will never end your suffering Stealing all your years God is with you but won't save you From your Trail of Tears

They Won't Go When I Go

JOSH GROBAN "Illuminations"
No more lying friends Wanting tragic ends Though they do pretend They won't go when I go All those bleeding hearts With sorrows to impart Were right here from the start And they won't go when I go And I'll go where I've longed To go so long Away from tears Gone from painful cries Away from saddened eyes Along with Him I'll bide Because they won't go when I go Big men feeling small Weak ones standing tall I will watch them fall They won't go when I go And I'll go where I've longed To go so long Away from tears Unclean minds mislead the pure The innocent will leave for sure For them there is a resting place People sinning just for fun They will never see the sun For they can never show their faces There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner Who will take more than he will give He will give He will give He's hardly going to give Ohhh The greed of man will be Far away from me And my soul will be free They won't go when I go Since my soul conceived All that I believe The kingdom I will see 'Cause they won't go when I go And I'll go Where I'll go No one can keep me From my destiny.

Paper Trail$

JOEY BADA$$ "B4.Da.$$"
[Hook:] Before the money, there was love But before the money, it was tough Then came the money through a plug It's a shame this ain't enough, yo [Verse 1:] Sitting back plotting, jotting information on my nation Really started from the bottom, boy, cotton But they still planting plantations, we keep buying in Closed-minded men, pride is higher than the prices on your pradas Balenciagas, balance my soccer with the henny agua Me and my niggas tryna eat, you pussies empanada The flow like plenty lava With just a penny I could multiply my worth And make you work for me for twenty hours I swear these niggas love to copy, thanks for listening This kid ain't been the same since Biggie smacked me at my christening Watch your tradition and please play it safe Cause your position on the top is switching right in front your face Rocking on this bass with rhymes, I'm bustin' out He duckin' down, got some issues now, headed for your house So put the pistols down, got that red dot on your nose Who put the clown on lock, jaws like the blue knows Froze, keep your mouth closed or you can see the solar I got connections that guaranteed to see closed doors You hear that underground sonar The way I flows, this wisdom The Pros been on a mission Listen into the chamber, get hyperbolic They raisin' max, I raise stakes to keep the brolic My bitches is macrocosmic, pass the chronic The mastered sonics is lightyears above your conscious You're novice, but I got notes that strike nerves I promise your minds ain't sharp like my swords So cut the BS, and don't worry where my jeans is And PS: Your bitch a genius, learnt from my penis I got dreams filling arenas and breaking brackets Tend this racket, while I'm cracking a Serena God damn, God bless the heaven that sent you But now I'm breezing out, baby, cause my rent's due [Verse 2:] Shit is really real out here I said shit is really real out here Just trying to get a deal out here I'm screaming cream Who fucking with the rap supreme?

Century After Century

Idlewild "The Remote Part"
Since your breathing, is it all that a space can fill? So just by looking in, I'll be looking still You find and follow stories well You're naked except for a newspaper, the headline telling me That fortune favours the brave I've been known to be that brave What I want is on it's way out All I needed was an easier way to stay Walking around the city as the light fades (is it all that you remain?) I'm thinking about each promise that I have ever made But I know what they will never say, I know what they will never say Century after Century they remain And if I read to remember that the entire Earth is outside this room So close the windows, keep the curtains shut forever And if I need to remember that the entire Earth is outside this room So close the windows, close the windows Isn't it romantic, to be romantic When you don't understand what you love Or if a word like that couls ever mean anything When what you want is on it's way out I didn't hear cheerleading for creative writers And your cheekbones don't taste of anything at all It's on it's way out, it's just an easier way to stay Talking about a city that the light made (is it all that you remain?) It's the same story that's been told But it's been stories that don't fade I know what they will never say, I know what they will never say Century after Century they remain Is it all that you remain?
