The Game

Original and similar lyrics
The Bar was dark, quiet and still And nothing could be heard The dust lay undisturbed At a table near the back, underneath a fan Two men shared a joka about the normal folk The cards are on the table The winners takes it all The game is nearly over One man about to fall I don't believe in heaven I don't believe in hell I don't believe what I'm seeing This is no game, can't you tell I'm calling your bluff the first man said The people went to war, they always wanted more How could I ever fail to lose They can't take it any more, they want to end the score The second man showed his hand Some walked barefoot across the land Many have seen the future And are doing the best they can CHORUS The clock ticked past the final hour Which of the men had lost? and what was the cost? The glasses now were empty and gone To wash away the shame, and take away the pain One man left the table The other, head in hands Paid the bill for the defeated the only thing left that stands CHORUS

Choking On A Wishbone

ATMOSPHERE "Headshots: SE7EN"
[Slug] This one goes out to all of those that want success Wait, not just the ones that want it This goes to those that feel they deserve it And this one goes to all of those that make the moves and those that have paid the dues To all of those that walk the fine line on the edge To all the heads about to break it loose And you don't want to come close to feeling it Initial reaction like "Yo, I don't give a shh..." After a minute within it, they start to think "Why the hell they didn't get it, did they not hear what he speaks?" They don't know me, it's best that way Let 'em look for tomorrow in yesterday And let me strain my lungs for the love of popping amps Let me spike the ball because I don't like to dance Let me paint a picture on the surface of your mind I got a job at the circus and I quit writing rhymes Now I travel from city to city, life of a gypsy Gravel, grass, concrete, folk law and mystery Yo, looking at my Gucci, it's about that time for me to pawn this piece of junk and try to take some of these finds Fly angel fly, don't ever look back You better scoop that dead rat off the track, go home and cook that Maybe you should trade that Mustang for a Jeep So when you get too drunk to drive, you'll have a dry place to sleep Don't forget what chocolate milk does to the hangover Come on, who you think cut the tires on your Land Rover? Twist the nobs and chew the fat off the shish kebab Ditch the lard that cut my hair and made me quit my job And if I pass before they get a chance to hear me Tell 'em "Kiss my ass" and teach 'em all about my theory [Chorus: 4x] Choking on a wishbone, position blown out the frame Pissed on the remains to mark the spot and spark the flame [Slug] It never settles, the constant grinding of metal against complicated timing, developing my threshold Touching the gestalt with a little reverb and some echo to add extra flavor like pesto Yo, the cards are dealt and now I'm staring at my hand Looking for something to toss, tryna find a spot to stand The anger felt as I look across the land It doesn't equal to the eagerness and hunger to expand Move past, the berry is set, the previous sets carry me through the meaninglessness Here I am with the word extracting nerves Running toward the stage (here we go) to watch the crash occur [Chorus: 2X] [Slug] Put your head on the pillow and shut your eyes Take your mind out the ghetto and touch the sky Then come ease down that much feared trail of blood, sweat and love Instead of flame, crying tears in the rain The blunder game, and it drowned out the hunger pains Numbed the brain and played life like a numbers game Poppa needs a new pair of nuts, cause he lost touch with the last ones fastened to the bottom of his guts Yo, they don't know me, it's best that way Let 'em look for tomorrow in yesterday This child is your fate so let 'em play I bet I know your age and I can guess your weight Wait, wait, how can it be so simple and straight? And why the hell ain't you tripping to make some ripples in the lake? I can't figure it out, for God's sake arguing a lost case as it irritates my prostate, and when I sit home alone I kick over the telephone and catch my zone inside the dial tone [Chorus] [Multiple recordings of Slug talking play together for 38 seconds]

Promised Land

AVANTASIA "Lost In Space Part 2"
Hey redeemer Now what's become on me taken in by promise awakening in grief Collecting us like puppets you instrumentalize A frigid trepidation in a million puppet eyes God gave his word just to let us down Where is he now? You've been facing heaven You were lost to left alone You re welcome to my home and Found another heaven It was you who took my hand Come into the promised land You scratched my back and I scratched yours It s you who makes decisions I just open up the doors Whining in the gutter They forget their sanctity Welcome to my clockwork Vanity machinery You gave your word You let me down What am I now You've been facing heaven You were lost to left alone You re welcome to my home and Found another heaven It was you who took my hand Come into the promised land Oh as far as the eye can see They re bent in submission Empty inside An army of scarecrows like me Thousands of brokens dreams Thousands of tragedies Tried to run from their destiny Like moths to a flame Driven by vanity They been off to Jerusalem Chasing a dream Calling on me We re just trading in needs You've been facing heaven You were lost to left alone You re welcome to my home and Found another heaven It was you who took my hand Come into the promised land

Why

STEPS "Step One"
And now , I know that I was wrong You never really cared for me all along And with you every dream I had Was all it was , ain't that the fact [Chorus] So I hold my head deep in my hands I'm lost at sea no sign of land I never knew what love could cost No-one could know how much I've lost I can't go on now that you've gone Theres nothing left inside I'll never understand why you had to lie It's not enough to say you love And then just say goodbye I'll never break these chains Theres no where to hide Why did you have to lie And now that every hope has gone I've got to find the strength to carry on Alone , much more than before I've given everything , theres nothing more [Chorus] Why does it hurt so much when theres nothing I can do Why do I hate myself 'coz I can't stop loving you Now my life is empty All I have is pain I can't forget you Why couldn't you have stayed Why did you have to lie

Every Beat Of My Heart

ROD STEWART "Every Beat Of My Heart"
Through these misty eyes I see lonely skies Lonely road to Babylon Where's my family And my country Heaven knows where I belong Pack my bags tonight Here's one Jacobite Who must leave or surely die Put me on a train In the pouring rain Say farewell but don't say goodbye Chorus: Seagull carry me, over land and sea To my own folk, that's where I want to be Every beat of my heart Tears me further apart I'm lost and alone in the dark I'm going home One more glass of wine Just for auld lang syne And the girl I left behind How I miss her now In my darkest hour And the way our arms entwine Chorus And we'll drink a toast To the blood red rose Cheer a while the Emerald Isle And to the northern lights And the swirling pipes How they make a grown man cry Chorus

What The Hell

Akos
Didn't seem much To get all worked up about Something I said Made us scream and shout We've been here before Wasn't such a big deal then You forgave me Thought you'd forgive again But this time around It seems You've made a stnd I'm putting my foot down On shifting sand It's a situation I'm not used to Watching your front door Is what I've been reduced to Fame and fortune Doesn't come that easily You're the one who said Enjoy it while You're free Breathe in the air The lights, the smoke, the band The thrill of the audience Eating from my outstretched hand But lately I have to say The juices haven't flowed The needle's on empty The car has left the road The source of my aura Was the faith I had in you Now I just wonder How on earth I continue The people' number one But what the hell for? A nation's favourite son But what the hell for? I exercise my power But what the hell for? I've reached the final hour But what the hell for? Three whole weeks Guess I have to face the fact Hope has gone Of her ever coming back There's just two immortal lines I'm thinking of You love the thing you kill And you kill the thing you love Striving, driving Sweeping all before me So people I think that matter Just can't ignore me Never let go No compromises Now who can deny Life's full of surprises The people's number one But what the hell for? A nation's favourite son But what the hell for? I exercise my power But what the hell for? I've reached the final hour But what the hell for?
