Anthem

Original and similar lyrics
No man, no madness Though their sad power may prevail Can possess, conquer, my country's heart They rise to fail She is eternal Long before nations' lines were drawn When no flags flew, when no armies stood My land was born And you ask me why I love her Through wars, death, and despair She is the constant We who don't care And you wonder why I leave her But how? I cross over borders but I'm still there now How can I leave her? Where would I start? Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart My land's only borders lie around my heart

Homemade Mummy

AESOP ROCK "Skelethon"
How to make a homemade mummy: Get a corpse, get gauze, get comfy Shampoo and disinfect dead fluffy For the hallowed excavation of his x-marked tummy Scalpel to stern, the butter cutter b-lines well Tongs butterfly the unzipped feline shell We'll be escorting vital organs With exception of the precious kittens heart Into the privacy of separate pickle jars Or mayonnaise or jelly pick a card Shit, pick a part and scissor Stomach, lung, intestine or liver In a world of sanitizers and preservatives forever Brain exterminated through the whiskers (kiss & blow) Ditched, I blank NY alone We usher in the salts that call the husk home Might embalm and stiffen and rid the fawn of all his liquids Slather it in beeswax, wrap it up in ribbons Like limb by limb, by tail by ear by chin With the new hereafter I hereby win I hope you vow to meow another day and never Decompose, by the way before we seal these molds The shorten version goes... Take the brain out, leave the heart in Take the brain out, leave the heart in Paper playgrounds, leave your harvest Take the brain out... Gadzooks, punk's dead, last good gut wrenched Antennae sam cook, black book pushead Cat skulls stacked to the black hole sunset Olive on a toothpick, Dagwood Bumstead Tagged-hoof hatchery, matter amass naturally Bad wolf, dash for the last rook castling Blue ox, red plaid bass pro flannel king Hasbro crown, sour apple Abba-Zabba teeth In poorly taken pictures antiquating on his mantlepiece Before we only spoke in letters cut from magazines Folk broke bear claws over gross coffee Not as milquestoast men, as los muertos walking Ergo the scarecrow in rare barley Squared-off harpy to armchair: say a prayer for me I feel that mystifying times have gotten ugly I also feel that you could learn a lot from a mummy Take the brain out, leave the heart in Take the brain out, leave the heart in Major take down, eat your porridge Take the brain out, leave the carcass Take the brain out, leave the heart in Take the brain out, leave the heart in Games to reign now, pleased to bargain Take the brain out, leafed in garlic Take the brain out, leave the heart in Take the brain out, leave the heart in Fading halos, feeding herpes Take the brain out, eager starlets Take the brain out, leave the heart in Take the brain out, leave the heart in Take the brain out, leave the heart in Take the brain out...

Mary's Eyes

Gaelic Storm
Mary's eyes are startling blue And her hair's Newcastle gold And she walks the thin white line between the body and the soul She's as faithful to her history As a novice to his fast For she's standing on the bones of Ireland's past Chorus: She's singing of the troubles And the fire in the land 'Til I can almost feel the famine slipping through my trembling hand And i wonder as I hear her, That the spirit still shines through And she can reach across the ocean deep and break my heart in two... Mary's wise and she is foolish She's as constant as the tide For it's a woman's heart that beats beneath that stubborn Irish pride We are saints and we are sinners We are heros we are theivesWe are all of us beginners on the road to Galilee Chorus So let us hiost a pint of silence To the east where ireland lies And we will stare across the waters For a glimpse of Mary's eyes We are ships without a harbor We are sailors are on dry land And the song goes on forever Even though the record can't Chorus

This One's Gonna 'Leave A Mark'

JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY "Leave A Mark"
(John Michael Montgomery/David Lee/Johnny Park/Elbert West) I've crashed and burned my old Firebird And walked away without a scratch And I've had my share of backwoods barroom brawls Been kicked and cussed and busted up But it was nothin' I couldn't patch With a Band-Aid or a shot of alcohol But this one's gonna leave a mark One that time won't heal Her good-bye cut like a knife Right through this man of steel Thought that I was tough enough I could just shake it off But even when I pretend it doesn't hurt at all I know deep down in my heart This one's gonna leave a mark Lovers came and went but never made a dent But none were quite like her I was a fool to not beg her to stay Filled with pride I just stood by And never said one word But I knew the moment that she walked away This one's gonna leave a mark One that time won't heal Her good-bye cut like a knife Right through this man of steel Thought that I was tought enough I could just shake it off But even when I pretend it doesn't hurt at all I know deep down in my heart This one's gonna leave a mark Thought I was Superman With a heart of stone and I couldn't feel Now here I am Standing all alone and here's the deal This one's gonna leave a mark One that time won't heal Her good-bye cut like a knife Right through this man of steel Thought that I was tought enough I could just shake it off But even when I pretend it doesn't hurt at all I know deep down in my heart This one's gonna leave a mark I've crashed and burned my old Firebird And walked away without a scratch

You Don't Know Nothin'

ALL 4 ONE "No Regrets"
[Verse:] Cold wind's blowing, confusions growing, Signs showing nobody's home, Peer through your window, Nothing but an empty soul, Where'd you move, Where'd you go Am I too late, to stop this, I'm in disbelief, I keep knocking, But the carving in that old oak tree, said forever you and me, The one thing I believed in has failed me [Bsec:] When everyone was looking on the outside in I got to know you behind closed curtains, And be the one that made sure that you're safe and warm [Hook:] How could you leave me, all alone, in the cold, at the door, Without a key to your heart, How could you leave me, no goodbye, boy I'm gone, movin on and now my love won't survive, Where can I mail off and send this, pent up emotion, cause you don't live here anymore, How could you leave me, all alone in the cold at the door, Without a key to your, [Verse:] Heart's pounding, yelling loudly, throwing rocks at your windows, Trying to kick it, put my, shoulder into it and once more tried the handle, And the telephone's disconnected, no electricity, I'm assuming, With our prints in the cement, remember when we were six, Wish we could be there again [Bsec:] When everyone was looking on the outside in I got to know you behind closed curtains, And be the one that made sure that you're safe and warm [Hook:] How could you leave me, all alone, in the cold, at the door, Without a key to your heart, How could you leave me, no goodbye, boy I'm gone, movin on and now my love won't survive, Where can I mail off and send this, pent up emotion, cause you don't live here anymore, How could you leave me, all alone in the cold at the door, Without a key to your heart You said you'd never leave, this home feels so empty, Tell me where did you go, go, Never saw a moving sign, just locked out wondering why, Your heart don't live here no more, How could you [Hook:] How could you leave me, all alone, in the cold, at the door, Without a key to your heart, How could you leave me, no goodbye, boy I'm gone, movin on and now my love won't survive, Where can I mail off and send this, pent up emotion, cause you don't live here anymore, How could you leave me, all alone in the cold at the door, Without a key to your heart

European Soul

KIM WILDE "Close"
I want to tell you of a place that I recall Where you're drawn by the seduction And the beauty of it all You can step into another world Of poetry and dreams In a land of mystery Images dance, translucent colours seem to shine They're a ghostly recollection Of another space and time I imagine I can hear their voices calling me To the land of mystery Where the Russian heart is strong Like the beating of a drum Where the magic lingers on And the fight for thruth is won Deep in the European soul And love's eternal flame was burning deep inside It was the purest inspiration That he never tried to hide When you see the lovers floating You can almost hear them sigh As you watch them dancing Up into the sky The world's realities are not to be denied But must we keep destroying all our fantasies It's hard to look beyond when terror fills our eyes We mustn't give up trying to let our dreams survive I touch the paintings with the fingers of my heart Like a supernatural love affair that's just about to start But there'll always be the hidden dreams I'll never see In the land of mystery
