Let Us Begin (What Are We Making Weapons For)

Original and similar lyrics
I am the son of a grassland farmer, western Oklahoma, nineteen forty-three. I always felt grateful to live in the land of the free. I gave up my father to South Korea, the mind of my brother to Vietnam, now there's a banker who says I must give up my land. There are four generations of blood in this topsoil, four generations of love on this farm. Before I give up, I would gladly give up my right arm. What are we making weapons for? Why keep on feeding the war machine? We take it right out of the mouths of our babies, take it away from the hands of the poor, tell me, what are we making weapons for? I had a son and my son was a soldier, he was so like my father, he was so much like me. To be a good comrade was the best that he dreamed he could be. He gave up his future to revolution, his life to a battle that just can't be won. For this is not living, to live at the point of a gun. I remember the nine hundred days of Leningrad, The sound of the dying, the cut of the cold, I remember the moments, I prayed I would never grow old. What are we making weapons for? Why keep on feeding the war machine? We take it right out of the mouths of our babies, take it away from the hands of the poor, tell me, what are we making weapons for? For the first time in my life I feel like a prisoner, a slave to the ways of the powers that be. And I fear for my children, as I fear for the future I see. Tell me how can it be we're still fighting each other? What does it take for a people to learn? If our song is not sung as a chorus, we surely will burn. What are we making weapons for? Why keep on feeding the war machine? We take it right out of the mouths of our babies, take it away from the hands of the poor, tell me, what are we making weapons for? Have we all forgotten all the lives that we are given, all the vows that were taken, saying never again, Now for the first time, this could be the last time. If peace is our vision, let us begin. Have we all forgotten all the lives that we are given, all the vows that were taken, saying never again, Now for the first time, this could be the last time. If peace is our vision, let us begin, let us begin.

Horror With Eyeballs

The Dissociatives "The Dissociatives"
Behind this gold picket fence lies a whole institute Where wallpaper painters scrape and scarecrows swell waterlogged, Now I got dead time on my hands For feeding my animals, All of this time on my hands, So far has gone to feeding my animals On this dark kissed day the light shines through only you Or is it because your silhouette is your frame like an empty window, Now i got cold time up my sleeve, I'm feeling destitute, All of this time on my hands, So far has gone to feeding my animals I feel root vegetable! Am i dead? Or buried alive? I sleep warm velvet wand, By the night...I'm selling the sun, my skin feels silky smooth now I'm buried in mud All of this time on my hands, So far has gone to feeding my animals, All of that time I was dead, Limbless in bed, sedated experiment Na Na Na Na

Don't Need Y'all

IGGY AZALEA "The New Classic"
[Verse 1:] I remember when it used to be simple But all this cash it just complicates things And all this money we into It will drive you crazy but it only makes me go harder Grow stronger and get tougher when the road get longer Sometimes you gonna think that it's too much on ya But think what I'd be doing if this wasn't going on So I just keep pushing when I'm being pulled in every direction Now I'm popping so the they watching every step of my progression Sometimes fame like a curse latched to my blessing On the road to the riches turning earth into heaven Dear Lord, if you hear me, I don't need not a new friend near me Cause I don't want none of that fake love Cause I'm looking and all of that be made up [Hook:] I remember when I wasn't this big And now ya'll wanna act like ya'll helped me get here Oh now everybody wanna love me Try to knock me down but I'm strong I did all this on my own Ain't got no time for no new friends So for now just leave me alone I don't need y'all anyway [x6] I don't need y'all [Verse 2:] Making each and every song like it might be my last one But still making sure the cash come Still ain't forget the times when I didn't have none Back against the wall feeling like I had to grab some That's when, I took time and I figured it out I'd rather deal with the stress more than living without Take a one way trip to the top one time Let you have it for a minute now I want mine Same girl on the cover of the magazine Was the one hiding pain that you haven't seen Talking 'bout No money, no family Sixteen in the middle of Miami Same critics love me nowadays couldn't stand me Now we talking 'bout VMA's and a Grammy But in due time, turn nothing into something So now I need money, put it all in my discussions [Hook] [Verse 3:] And if you wasn't here when I was down Then you won't be here when I'm up Now the same one you looked over Be the same one that blew up Ain't it funny how this life thing works When you think it's finished is when it all begins Go from doubts to having the thought it might work It goes up and down then it starts again When I reminisce sometimes I can't even keep a dry eye But my how time flies by when you on top of the world sky high [Hook]

Eat, Sleep, And Die

JIN "XIV:LIX"
Somebody tell me why somebody tell me why It feels like that we’re here to just eat, sleep, and die Woke up this mornin’ The first thing to cross my mind asked myself this question What am I doing with my time On the grind Grindin’ for what A purpose I don’t even know I just get up and go Hope for the best Is it a test? Maybe so So who got the answers Not me but I’m searchin And I’m certain every person that is workin’ Has a version Of the truth But what’s the use Without no proof We just arguin’ to argue nah I’d rather hit the booth And let loose Making use of these skills Everyday is real Just trying to pay these bills Is that all there is Or is it something bigger Than taking care of yo business and counting all your figures Questions keep on comin’ can’t just keep on runnin’ Gotta face the music I do this and I love it I was put here for a reason I’m just trying to figure out why I know one thing I ain’t here to just Eat sleep and die I know it’s just a lie I know it’s just a lie I ain’t here no I ain’t here to just eat, sleep, and die I know it’s just a lie I know it’s just a lie I ain’t here no I ain’t here to just eat, sleep, and die You tell yourself That they don’t know What’s your plans And what’s your goals All that hate Can take it’s toll What will it take to Save your soul Trying to find some meaning So you keep on dreaming Which turn to nightmares they don’t fight fair Still slay your demons Screamin’ for freedom gotta keep fighting ‘til your destiny is fulfilled Let your guard down on the battlefield With a shattered shield might get yourself killed I know what you’re thinkin’ You’re the captain of your own ship So even if it starts sinkin’ No matter what happens don’t trip Don’t take more than you give What are you leavin’ your kids? Cause even when you’re gone Your legacy will still live That’s called making an impact In fact let it be known That when it’s your time to go You can’t take anything that you own That goes for all of us Universal law The damage has been done We can’t reverse the fall You were put here for a reason Trust me that’s no lie I’m sayin’ though It can’t be to just eat, sleep, and die Somebody tell me why Somebody tell me why It feels like that we’re here to just eat sleep and die Somebody tell me why Somebody tell me why It feels like that we’re here To just eat sleep and die I know that’s just a lie I know that’s just a lie I ain’t here no I ain’t here to just eat, sleep, and die I know that’s just a lie I know that’s just a lie I ain’t here no I ain’t here to just eat, sleep, and die

Kill The Messenger

AESOP ROCK "Bazooka Tooth"
[Spoken] Hey stupid, you're listening to Bazooka tooth, dental cannons, molar pistols; shit like that. This is Murs, motherfucker, this is Aesop Rock, Ace Rizzle. Ya know what I'm saying? Check it out, like, Living Legends, Def Jux, if you don't know, now you're informed. Be better prepared for the next time this type of shit goes down. 'Cause when it's happening and you're unaware you look like a complete asshole. (Fastest motherfucker touching down on kick drums)? Every leader dead and its making you upset. La da de dah da da, La da de da da da dow dom set, set, set... Every hero dead and its making you forget. get, get, get. La da de dah da da, La da de da da da dow dom. I'm in and out a pig channel serrated by hand feeders. Army of vicious kidney patrol yam peelers. They sleep in barns and whisper looney conspiracy secrets. Increasing payroll to end is blind, while a.w.o.l. went the leaders. The only mammal officially banned from food chain For Finishing for over 25 consecutive years on top is aggravating, Alarmingly, the pulse don't bump right, and he's up nights bumping over crunk and bug bites. Who luck like this evening. Stay electric mud blood jockey in for the footing. My last supper starts with a vinaigrette over pickled muppet hearts while sheep tucked deep in the wood chipper. For the shepherd was a milk carton in scissors. Clammy hands make henna run on risky Jenga tugs. They're all sweating, Hell I'm sweatin' too, just ain't nobody sweatin' you! (Holmes!) The muck went abacus on labor persperator official biz when auditioning demos by which to live. No whammies, Stop. Triple six game never chose me. Trickery gets hokey. Pick up stix and ponies. you've got mail champ: blow me. Just a trooper with a question mark machine needy pointed at the heavens like bee gee on some "where the hells my freebie?" To clamp war stupid. No land lords or super. no hands. Water no ice cubes Rubik, no plans. No motor movement no dance, no pyrotechnics to enhance. no chance too many grown men calling in sick over cramps I weigh in heavy on the jaded bitter subtracting the frontal gimmick I want to solve world hunger and fuck a pinup I want to find a 21st century carbon crutch worthy of pedestal placement and shitty path walking to touch. (Fastest motherfucker touching down on kick drums)? Every leader dead and its making you upset. La da de dah da da, La da de da da da dow dom set, set, set... Every hero dead and its making you forget. get, get, get. La da de dah da da, La da de da da da dow dom. Ain't no time to sit and lift stones so its left to the dogs to find their way home and you grew up in a similar generation alone with fist full of humanoid models along the road with a frank? in your ancient fuck if i can find a flesh and bone tour guide to etch me through the makeshift every little footprints dated and ancient now Ima step through this motherfucker impatient for the first time in a long line of dog fights little Lassy will not be returning home tonight [?]

Making Waves

HOODIE ALLEN "Making Waves"
Yeah I was the cool kid in my crowd of misfits Malcolm in the Middle, couldn't spin the disk quick And now I'm fly like a diskcus, eye on the biscuit Sin City, I couldn't resist it But if you miss it, they be saying you a wise man While we trying to get the green like Iceland I just pull the tags off everything is priceless If you after the cake I'm cool with the icing Out my mind, there ain't time to sit pretty Text say "I'ma meet him in the city" And Johnny got the keys said we in a sick new studio And I'm coming over, it's no Rick Rubio No big movie role, not until whe make it 'Til I'm getting degrees like bacon And you've been on your knees like Meagan Meet your way into the stars Knowing very well, you ain't going far [Hook:] They say "do not go splashing" And I never behave And I don't know my place I'll be making my waves now I know you like it I can tell by your face So come off with the chase But I'll be making my waves now No swine flu, we really sick this time And woman never let us leave, District 9 I grab bag'em, hoped you picked this rhyme As the best thing you heard since Christmas time You missed us right? Well no we're back at it It's getting harder to breathe I'm like an asthmatic You don't gotta ask, I'ma let your ass have it Cause everybody else sounding like they half-assed it I spit acid to burn the mic down And I'm coming for 2000 and right now We ain't seeing what you wrote like white-out Grab the cash register and then scream I'm out Of place, but it's not my face though Cause I don't wanna have to preach like I'm Mase yo All I want, a girl that is tasteful, money by the waistload And celebrate with drinks by the case load [Hook] They trying to keep us down like the undertoe And they tellin' all they friends that we wonderful I'm just trying to keep my head above the water flow Fuck it, we can stagedive, I ain't even learn to float Now the big wigs love us and we know this And they thinkin' we some kids, goldfish I could play that game too, we I go rich You ain't in my zone, why you throwing me the low pitch? But I own this, homerun, broke the bat Y'all some small fries but we welcome fat Young now but the knowledge of an older cat Got a hill to climb, we'll get over that They thought it's a stage, he'll get over that Fuck that thinkin', what up to the doughboys Y'all get Lincoln, I get Franklins And time is ticking This Titanic not sinking [Hook] And I never behave I can tell by your face [2x] Cause I'll be making my waves now
