Do You Remember Walter?

Original and similar lyrics
Walter, remember when the world was young And all the girls knew Walter's name? Walter, isn't it a shame the way our little world has changed? Do you remember, Walter, playing cricket in the thunder and the rain? Do you remember, Walter, smoking cigarettes behind your garden gate? Yes, Walter was my mate, But Walter, my old friend, where are you now? Walter's name. Walter, isn't it a shame the way our little world has changed? Do you remember, Walter, how we said we'd fight the world so we'd be free. We'd save up all our money and we'd buy a boat and sail away to sea. But it was not to be. I knew you then but do I know you now? Walter, you are just an echo of a world I knew so long ago If you saw me now you wouldn't even know my name. I bet you're fat and married and you're always home in bed by half-past eight. And if I talked about the old times you'd get bored and you'll have nothing more to say. Yes people often change, but memories of people can remain.

Bankrupt On Selling

MODEST MOUSE "The Lonesome, Crowded West"
Well all the apostles, they're sitting in swings Saying i'd sell off my savior for a set of new rings And some sandles with the style of straps that cling best to the era So all of the businessers in their unlimited Hell Where they buy and they sell and they sell all their Trash to each other becayse they're sick of it all And they're bankrupt on selling And all of the angels They'd sell off your soul for a set of new wings And anything gold They remember The people they loved their old friends Most everything And i've seen through'em all seen through'em all and seen Through all the people you knew were the actors All the people you knew were the actors Well, I'll go to college and i'll learn some big words And I'll talk real loud Goddamn right I'll be heard You'll remember all the guys that said all those big words he Must've learned in college And it took a long time I came clean with myself I come clean out of love with my lover I still love her Loved her more when she used to be sober and I was kinder

Little Sister

Little sister come and sit beside me, beside me And we'll play a tune on this old piano forte Just for a while, just for a while, just for a while Til your hair becomes a powdered wig And I become a total bastard Feet that hardly reach the pedal Sold to a tremendous shadow Ave ave history is on my side So complain have no shame And remember that your brother is a boy Though it seems the stakes contain some ante-grate We all feel it still is based on good old intrigue Just for a while, just for a while, just for a while You may have to use your hips as fodder Still putting your best foot forward Madame didn't stack the cupboard ended up like mother hubbard Ave, buddy (?), history is still a game So complain have no shame and remember that round one has just been played And you are poised for centuries to claim Follow examples from no longer a choice The world be just a ball to pass or gaze upon And one more thing Before we go on again Let's end this maze Keep out the threat of a kid Oh my little-little sister

Those Anarcho Punks Are Mysterious...

AGAINST ME! "Against Me! Is Reinventing Axl Rose"
We're all presidents, we're all congressmen, We're all cops in waiting, We're the workers of the world, There is the elite and the dispossessed, And it's only about survival, Who has the skill to play the game for all it's worth, And reach an obscure kind of perfection, Let's try and keep as much emotion out of this as possible, Let's try not to remember any names, We'll do it for a country, for a people, for a moral vision, United, we'll make them remember our history, Or how we'd like to be told, How we'd like to be told... And we rock, Because it's us against them. We found our own reasons to sing, And it's so much less confusing when lines are drawn like that, When people are either consumers or revolutionaries, Enemies or friends hanging on the fringes Of the cogs in the system, It's just about knowing where everyone stands. All of a sudden, People start talking 'bout guns, Talking like they're going to war, 'Cause they found something to die for, Start taking back what they stole- sure beats every other option, But does it make a difference how we get it? Well do you really fucking get it? No, no, no, no, No, no, no, no....

Pray 4 Me

Ghetto life as a youngsta, we was gettin' by Never imagined a picture, my mama gettin' high But she was, sneakin' in gettin' her down low Homies used to laugh behind my back, thinkin' i'd never know But in time, I started to realize things ain't right Mama sleepin' with a different man Each & every night Since my daddy died Well, that's when the pressure came Beggin' Lord Down on my knees Tell me who's to blame? Was my father drug addicted? That I never knew? Feelin' luv with my mother now she addicted too Full out of Hennessy, Lord, I can bearly breath Found my mama on the floor Now she an O.D I call 911 fast, I can't let her die Seen the trice in her arms That's when I start to cry They said my mama, would make it to another day But how much longer will it be before she slips away? CHORUS: Somebody pray for me (Now) Somebody pray for me Somebody pray....for meeee I remember not being able to wear the clothes The kids was wearin' This time was rough So me & my brother,we was sharin' & mama knew that we own the same size So his Levis was my Levis (hehe) We even had to share the same tennis shoes & when people baby-sit us We caught the blues That's when we learned ain't no love, like ur mama's love It's a gift sent from heaven, some where up above So I learned to value, my black queen Even though now all I see, is a dope fiend Why do people have to use drugs? Are inspire Remember lil' James Daw we caught him across the fire What about my Uncle Rodnie died of an heart attack Him & Kiana tell the Lord can we bring him back My hommie Rodrick he thugged heavy till he droped Atleast he got his wish He finally met Pac Pray for me

Scream Like A Baby

DAVID BOWIE "Scary Monsters"
Well I wouldn't buy no merchandise And I wouldn't go to war And I mixed with other colours But the nurse doesn't care And I hide under blankets Or did I run away I really can't remember Last time I saw the light of day But I remember Sam 'cause he was like me [CHORUS] Scream like a baby Sam was a gun And I never knew his last name And we never had no fun Well they came down hard on the faggots And they came down hard on the street They came down harder on Sam And they all knew he was beat He was thrown into the wagon Blindfolded, chains, and they stomped on us And took away our clothes and things And pumped us full of strange drugs And oh I saw Sam falling Spitting in their eyes But now I lay me down to sleep And now I close my eyes Now I'm learning to be a part of soc-society [CHORUS] No athletic program, no discipline, no book He just sat in the backseat swearing he'd seek revenge But he jumped into the furnace Singing old songs we loved [CHORUS (twice)]
