MANIC STREET PREACHERS lyrics - This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours

I'm Not Working

Original and similar lyrics
Petryfied for the millionth time Slowly my soul evaporates No parachutes no dismal clouds Just this fucking space I know what's coming I'm not working I know what's coming I'm not working Sweating out intelligence Like I don't know what it is Clinging to the microwaves And singing with the soundwaves I know what's coming I'm not working I know what's coming I'm not working Delerium on helium I am my own experience I know what's coming I'm not working I know what's coming I'm not working I'm not working I'm not working I'm not working

Working On It

CHRIS REA "New Light Through Old Windows"
Oh how I'd love it girl, just you and me Take the day and fly But oh this job, it's got the best of me Tell you why, tell you why Somebody above is in a desperate state Some kind of urgency, the kind that won't wait I say tomorrow, he say today And the man in my head well he tell me no way Keep working I got eight little fingers and only two thumbs Will you leave me in peace while I get the work done Can't you see I'm working Oh, oh I'm working on it Oh, oh I'm working on it Well they're coming from above me And they're coming from below Yea they're in there right behind me Everywhere that I go And my buddy, he's screaming down the telephone line He say gimme, gimme, gimme I say I ain't got the time Oh, oh can't you see I'm working on it Oh, oh I'm working on it Yea, yea, oh tell 'em How I'd love it girl, just you and me Take the day and fly But oh, this job it's got the best of me Tell you why Well they're coming from above me And they're coming from below Yea they're in there right behind me Everywhere that I go My buddy, he's screaming down the telephone line He say gimme, gimme, gimme I say I ain't got the time Oh, oh can't you see I'm working on it Oh, oh I'm working on it Oh, oh I'm working Oh, oh can't you see I'm working on it

AGAINST ME! "Against Me! Is Reinventing Axl Rose"
Tell me how could you compromise Yourself like this? Tell me how could you blame anyone else When you aren't really committed? Tell me where was your head When you broke that promise to yourself, The one where you don't forget Every life lesson that happend before your eyes So you don't wake up to regret she's gone years away? You had hopes and dreams of a day Where everything, everything, everything would come together, You wouldn't have to be so scared. Are we just working till a day we decide we've had enough? All along We were strong enough To be sick of it, And put them back in their fucking place. we never asked for this responsibility We were never in this... Together. The reality that you know Is just behind your idea Of a society, security, and self. Am I just fucked up? 'Cause I can't remember The last time any of this made sense, The last time I Could stand up to myself. Street faces all blend into one, They ask for spare change. Am I forgetting What it looks like From the other side? Have I forgotten where I've come from? Are we just working till a day we decide we've had enough? All along We were strong enough To be sick of it, And put them back in their fucking place. we never asked for this responsibility We were never in this... Together...

Oh how I'd love it girl just you and me Take the day and fly. But oh this job it's got the best of me Tell you why tell you why: Somebody above is in a desperate state Some kind of urgency the kind that won't wait. I say: Tomorrow. He say: today. And the man in my head well he tell me: No way. - Keep working. I got eight little fingers and only two thumbs Will you leave me in peace while I get the job done? Can't you see i'm working? Oh oh I'm working on it oh oh I'm working on it. Well they're coming from above me and they're coming from below. Yeah they're in there right behind me everywhere that I go. And my buddy he's screaming down the telephone line He said: Gimme gimme gimme! I say: I ain't got no time. Oh oh can't you see I'm working on it? OH oh I'm working on it yeah yeah oh tell them. How I'd love it girl just you and me ... Well they're coming from above me and they're coming from below. ...

JAKALOPE "It Dreams"
Come to me Baby Follow my lead I've a confession to make It's always been this way Oh I'm playing you for a fool You fell for every broken rule I'm doing what I owe to you It's been a long time coming And I'm coming for you While I Silently I scream Inside I Barely breathe Silently I scream Reflection of the soul It'll never be the same Less less than jaded, I Still Still I've changed Do you feel Naive Did you make me believe Were you Decieved Oh you fell right on your knees Oh I'm playing you for a fool You fell for every broken rule I'm doing what I owe to you It's been a long time coming And I'm coming for you While I Silently I scream Inside I Barely breathe Silently I scream Reflection of the soul It'll never be the same Less less than jaded, but Still Still I I've changed You've gotta crawl away now No way I'll let you stay You've got it goin on I don't want to see your face It's taken all this time Before I realized that I Should go Because I told you so I Could let it go Without a fight It might not be right Reflection of the soul It'll never be the same Less less than jaded, but Still Still I I've changed You've gotta crawl away now No way I'll let you stay You've got it goin I don't want to see your face [x3]

Modern Times

AL STEWART "Modern Times"
Hello old friend, what a strange coincidence to find you It's been fifteen years since we last met, but I still recognised you So call the barman over here, and let us fill our glasses And drink a toast to olden times where all our memories lie Where all our memories lie Do you remember the time we were young? Lowly, lowly, low Outside the window the frosty moonlight hung On the midnight snow So we pulled our scarves around our faces in the night Huddled on the doorsteps where the fairylights shone bright Singing Christmas carols while our breath hung in the light It all comes back like yesterday It almost seems like yesterday Do you remember the changes as we grew? Slowly, slowly, slow Sneaking in the back way into movies after school For the evening show Chasing skinny blue jean girls across the building-site Checking out the dance floor while the band played "Hold Me Tight" See the blonde one over there: I bet she'd be alright It all comes back like yesterday It almost seems like yesterday While I talked he sat and he never made a sound Staring at the glass beside me Hey old friend, tell me what's on your mind? Silence grows on you like ivy Ivy Do you remember the church across the sands? Holy, holy, ho You stood outside and planned to travel the lands Where the pilgrims go So you packed your world up inside a canvas sack Set off down the highway with your rings and Kerouac Someone said they saw you in Nepal a long time back Tell me why you look away Don't you have a word to say? He said, "I don't remember ... I Don't want to remember In fact I've heard too much already I don't want to think, just leave me here to drink Wrapped up in the warmth of New York City Oh, oh, it seems you just don't know And you just don't understand me I've got no use for the tricks of modern times They tangle all my thoughts like ivy Ivy" So I left him, and I went out to the street Lowly, lowly, low Where the red light girls were coming after me Forty dollar show All across the city's heart the lights were coming on The hotel lift softly hummed a Cole Porter song If I went to look for him I knew he would be gone A picture-card of yesterday A photograph of yesterday And far off in a deserted part of town The shadows like a silent army Flooded out the rooms in pools of blue and brown And stuck to all the walls like ivy Ivy Ivy
