Original and similar lyrics
Next Thursday you're invited to watch Rising Tide's live coverage of a gala tribute in salute to Ronald Reagan. Host Haley Barbour joins special guest lady Margaret Thatcher in celebrating the former president's 83 birthday. Ticket's are 1000 Dollars a plate but you can see the event free on GOP TV. Images of perfection, suntan and napalm Grenada - Haiti - Poland - Nicaragua Who shall we choose for our morality I'm thinking right now of Hollywood tragedy Big mac: smack: phoenix r: please smile y'all Cuba, Mexico can't cauterize our discipline Your idols speak so much of the abyss Yet your morals only run as deep as the surface Cool - groovy - morning - fine (If white) Tipper Gore was a friend of mine (America) I love a free country (told the truth) The stars and stripes and an apple for mommy (for one day) Conservative say: there ain't no black in the union jack Democrat say: there ain't enough white in the stars and stripes Compton - Harlem - a pimp fucked a priest The white man has just found a new moral saviour Vital stats - how white was their skin Unimportant - just another inner-city drive-by thing Morning - fine - serve your first coffee of the day Real privilege, it will take your problems all away Number one - the best - no excuse from me I am here to serve the moral majority Cool - groovy - morning - fine (If white) Tipper Gore was a friend of mine (America) I love a free country (told the truth) The stars and stripes and an apple for mommy (for one day) Zapruder the first to masturbate The world's first taste of crucified grace And we say: there's not enough black in the union jack And we say: there's too much white in the stars and stripes Fuck the Brady bill Fuck the Brady bill If God made man they say Sam Colt made him equal

Beneath The Howling Stars

CRADLE OF FILTH "Cruelty And The Beast"
Midwinter wrongs the rites of Spring Her spinal chill rakes the earth Whilst pensive souls at zero sing Woebetidings of rebirth Under cold stares of Mars maligned Near-suicides cross their hearts And unborns writhe in tepid brine For something wicked this way starts Beneath the howling stars Elizabeth, paragon of vice Watches the sun set pyres alight As Bane and Tyranny, Her Dobermans sleep Like spellbound paramours at Her feet A chatter of bells without Raise hellhounds, teeth on edge From sleighs hastened through snow lit red Guests espied from the garret ledge Great gloomy mirror tell Her face She will outblind them all That heavenly bodies would fall from grace To possess such a lustrous pall For beauty is always Cruel... For beauty is always... (Let destiny in chains commence... Damnation under Gods seeking recompense Enslaving to the whims of this mistress) As the dance ensued Elizabeth's mood Tempered by the craft of a vitreous moon In slick black iciness it grew To consume The wench Her tower tombed Tending to Her costume Bore the brunt of the storm When the needle askewed She has Her dogs maul the bitch's wrists through Restored to jaded bliss This evisceratrix Descended to the ball With painted blood upon Her lips Passing like a comet so white As to eclipse The waltz wound down, transfixed Devoid of all breath in the air Even Death paled to compare To the taint of Her splendour So rare and engendered 'Pon the awed throng gathered There... Beneath the howling stars She danced so macabre Men entranced divined from Her gait That this angel stepped from a pedestal Had won remission from fate By alighting to darker spheres Delighting in held sway For She was not unlike the Goddess To whom the wolves bayed Whilst envy glanced daggers From court maidens, arboured Who whispered in sects Of suspicions abroad That Elizabeth bewitched See how even now the whore casts Her spells upon the Black Count Whom Her reddened lips hold fast Tongue unto tongue Swept on tides without care For the harpies who rallied Their maledict glares A halo of ravens tousled Her hair Chandeliers a tiara For passions ensnared Phantasies sexed When their eyes, moonstruck met Their friction wore a way Through the sea of foreplay Lovers at first bite She an Eve tempted to lay Gasping at rafters Flesh pressed in ballet But caprice, honours leashed She absconded the feast To prowl wonderland Beasts in hand from the Keep Of Feudal dilemma Well mantled in furs Through cullis to watch Dogstars howl at the earth On this violent night Unholy night Winds lashed their limbs together As the ether vent its wintry spite She wished His kiss on Her frozen landscapes To excite the bleak advance From castle bowers Wherein small hours The Devil never came by chance A lone charm tied to Her inner thigh Sent lusts nova as hooves trod Cobbled streets where lowlives fleet Were flung to a wayward god Midwinter wrongs the rites of Spring Her spinal chill rakes the earth Whilst pensive souls at zero sing Woebetidings of rebirth Under cold stares of Mars maligned Near-suicides cross their hearts And unborns writhe in tepid brine For something wicked this way starts Beneath the howling stars Pounding upon the pauper ridge Earshot of a hunched beldame Elizabeth teased, would He dare to please Such elderly loins enflamed? To this He feigned a grim disdain Playing to Her slayful eye But the hag replied... This girl that chides Will soon be as plagued with age as I Her consort laughed a plume of icy breath For Elizabeth's grace could raise A flag of truce in burning heaven Or the dead from early graves Yet still She seethed This proud Snow Queen Embittered with the cursed retort And because He sought Her loves onslaught He gutted the crone for sport Soon in full moon fever they were wed Lycanthropic in the conjugal bed Littered with aphrodisiacs To tease dynastic union And beget them further maniacs Elizabeth Free reigned, now a Countess Outwielded and outwore Her title like a favoured dress Whilst Her errant Lord Whose seasons savoured war Stormed black to fell the infidel Her embers, tempered, roared.

Cinderella

PLAY "Play"
When I was just a little girl My momma used to tuck me into bed and she'd read me a story It always was about a princess in distress And how a guy would save her and end up with the glory I'd lie in bed and think about the person that I wanted to be Then one day I realized the fairy tale life wasn't for me [Chorus] I don't wanna be like Cinderella Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar Waiting for somebody to come and set me free I don't wanna be like Snow White waiting For a handsome prince to come and save me On a horse of white, unless we're riding side by side Don't want to depend on no one else I'd rather rescue myself Someday I'm gonna find someone who wants me body, soul, heart, and mind Who's not afraid to show that he loves me Somebody who will understand I'm happy just the way I am Don't need nobody taking care of me I will be there for him just as strong as he will be there for me When I give myself then it has to got to be, an equal thing [Chorus] I can slay my own dragons I can dream my own dreams My knight in shining armor is me So I'm gonna set me free [Chorus x3]

White America

EMINEM "The Eminem Show"
America, hahaha, we love you, how many people are proud to be citizens of this beautiful country of our's, the stripes and the stars for the rights that men have died for to protect, the women and men who have broke their neck's for the freedom of speech the United States government has sworn to uphold, or so we're told... Yo', I want everybody to listen to the words of this song, I never would've dreamed in a million years i'd see, so many motherfuckin' people who feel like me, who share the same views and the same exact beliefs, it's like a fuckin' army marchin' in back of me, so many lives I touch, so much anger aimed, in no particular direction, just sprays and sprays, and straight through your radio waves it plays and plays, 'till it stays stuck in your head for days and days, who would of thought, standing in this mirror bleachin' my hair, with some peroxide, reachin for a t-shirt to wear, that I would catapult to the forefront of rap like this, how could I predict my words would have an impact like this, I must've struck a chord, with somebody up in the office, cause congress keeps telling me I ain't causin' nuthin' but problems, and now they're sayin' i'm in trouble with the government, i'm lovin' it, I shoveled shit all my life, and now I'm dumping it on... [CHORUS] White America, I could be one of your kids, white America, little Eric looks just like this, white America, Erica loves my shit, I go to TRL, look how many hugs I get, white America, I could be one of your kids, white America, little Eric looks just like this, white America, Erica loves my shit, I go to TRL, look how many hugs I get... Look at these eyes, baby blue, baby just like yourself, if they were brown, Shady lose, Shady sits on the shelf, but Shady's cute, Shady knew, Shady's dimple's would help, make ladies swoon baby, {ooh baby}, look at my sales, let's do the math, if I was black, I would've sold half, I ain't have to graduate from Lincoln high school to know that, but I could rap, so fuck school, i'm too cool to go back, gimme the mic, show me where the fuckin' studio's at, when I was underground, no one gave a fuck I was white, no labels wanted to sign me, almost gave up, I was light, fuck it, until I met Dre, the only one to look past, gave me a chance, and I lit a fire up under his ass, helped him get back to the top, every fan black that I got, was probably his in exchange for every white fan that he's got, like damn, we just swapped, sittin' back lookin' at shit, wow, i'm like my skin is it starting to work to my benefit now, it's... [CHORUS] See the problem is, I speak to suburban kids, who otherwise would of never knew these words exist, whose mom's probably would of never gave two squirts of piss, 'till I created so much motherfuckin' turbulence, straight out the tube, right into your living room I came, and kids flipped when they knew I was produced by Dre, that's all it took, and they were instantly hooked right in, and they connected with me too because I looked like them, that's why they put my lyric's up under this microscope, searchin' with a fine tooth comb, its like this rope, waitin' to choke, tightening around my throat, watching me while I write this, like I don't like this, nope, all I hear is, lyrics, lyrics, constant controversy, sponsors working 'round the clock, to try to stop my concerts early, surely hip-hop was never a problem in Harlem, only in Boston, after it bothered the fathers of daughters starting to blossom, so now i'm catchin' the flack from these activists when they raggin', actin' like i'm the first rapper to smack a bitch, or say faggot, shit, just look at me like i'm your closest pal, the posterchild, the motherfuckin' spokesman now for... [CHORUS] So to the parents of America, I am the derringer aimed at little Erica, to attack her character, the ringleader of this circus of worthless pawns, sent to lead the march right up to the steps of congress, and piss on the lawns of the White House, to burn the casket and replace it with a parental advisory sticker, to spit liquor in the faces of in this democracy of hypocrisy, fuck you Ms. Cheney, fuck you Tipper Gore, fuck you with the freest of speech this divided states of embarassment will allow me to have, fuck you, [vocal melody], he, hahaha, i'm just playin' America, you know I love you...

Decree

ANI DIFRANCO "Reprieve"
Step up and forfeit your frontal lobe To the sexed up stroll of celebrity Never mind that the nanoseconds in between Are some of the darkest darkness that you've ever seen Keep your eye on my finger And listen to the sound of my voice Get your subliminal decree And your false security Be all that you can be Be all that you can be In hospitals and schools Airports and banks and bars Big ones on street corners Little ones driving by in cars And glowing through countless Bedroom curtains at night That 30k tone And that pale blue light saying Daddy knows best Yes, this is the news In 90 second segments officially produced And aired again and again and again By the little black and white pawns Of the network yes men While the stars are going out And the stripes are getting bent And cancer, the great teacher Has been opening schools Downstream from every factory Still, everywhere fools are Squinting into microscopes Researching cells Trying to figure out a way That we can all live in hell Well, step back, look up You'll see I'm dimming the sun But you won't, will you? Oh, that's a good little one 'cause daddy knows best Yes, this is the news In 90 second segments officially produced And aired again and again and again By the little black and white pawns Of the network yes men While the stars are going out And the stripes are getting bent The stars are going out And the stripes are getting bent
