SHOOTER JENNINGS lyrics - Black Ribbons

Last Light Radio 11:29 PM

Original and similar lyrics
There's a book by an author named Carol S. Pearson from the mid-70s called "The Hero Within: Six Archetypes We Live By" Even though it's nearly forty years old, the book still speaks of the journey each of us takes through our lives The Innocent The Orphan The Wanderer The Warrior The Martyr The Magician We float between these identities They change as the phases of our lives take center stage, one after the other Today I feel like a martyr, but tomorrow I'll be a warrior For even though my time as the magician is drawing to an end, the innocent in me will continue to believe and hope In love and that the goodness of humanity will prevail Here's Hierophant's take on the journey from innocence to experience Which is another way of saying from innocence to orphanhood Here's Fuck You (We're Famous) Put all ten middle fingers in the air and dance my brothers and sisters If we can't dance a little on the last night of the last light, all is lost

Dance Or Die

JANELLE MONÁE "The ArchAndroid (Suites II And III)"
Cyborg, android, d-boy, decoy, water, wisdom, tightrope, vision, insight, stronghold, heartless, ice cold, mystery, mastery, solar, battery Some will pull the gun because they want to be stars Snatching up your life into the blink of an eye And if you see your cloning on a street walking by Keep a running for your life cause only one will survive War is in the street and it's an eye for an eye Run on for your life or you can dance you can die She's praying in the sand like she's the last samurai It's a stick up stick up and a pick up pick up Telling lies and telling lies will put your face on fire Run and tell your friends to never dream, never win Ghettos keep a crying out to streets full of zombies Kids are killing kids and then the kids join the army Rising and a waking, yes sir here comes the sun March into the war and with the kick of the drum The wiser simians have got the bombs and the guns So you might as well keep dancing if you're not gonna run A long long way to find the one We'll keep on dancing till she comes These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever And if you wanna wake the sun Just keep on marching to the drums These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever Now I'm not saying it's better to bailar (Spanish for dance) You can pull the trigger or you can build you an ark My words are rather kind you keep them held in contempt Looking for a nine and then a droid you can tempt Zombie, zombie, zombie, where do dreams come from? A little bird is chirping and she's singing a song She's shaking em and waking em and giving em mas As the clock tick tocks and the bodies drop I'm gonna lay myself so far way down right in your chops Modern day example of the wolf vs flock Freedom necessary and it's by any means Frozen they were stolen all the kings and queens Sudanese and Congolese who put the roll in the rock From here to Sudan, Metropolis to Iraq It's a minute to the dawn and yet the sun ain't back It's still a war in all the stress and yes freaks will dance or die A long long way to find the one We'll keep on dancing till she comes These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever And if you wanna wake the sun Just keep on marching to the drums These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever Angel, blossom, gunshot, dodging, dream, bright, beat, light, breathe, live, help, give, focus, trance, wake up, dance! I'm praying for the man sitting without much time May he understand the clock will never rewind Wisen him and sharpen him and give him a motto hate no more, said he must hate no more You see the daylight comes into the kingdom But the kingdom's full of ignorant men Just keep rebelling away, you gotta dream it away Because the weatherman on TV ain't creating the weather This man wants to see another jubilation And that man wants us in emancipation And then there is the man who wants a stronger nation You see we really got to and i think that we ought to Protect the mind from degradation Sow in the seeds of education They run from us, are we that dangerous? There's a war in all the streets and yes the freaks must dance or die!

All I Can See

BRENDAN JAMES "The Day Is Brave"
I want to walk through this doorway I want to open my mind I want to pledge my allegiance to all I can find I want a car that will crash trough the barrier To a road no one knows I want to feel less control on the bend and I Want to land far from home The revolution of the earth around the sun Is the perfect lesson of how it should be So if I cannot learn to journey and return To never rest till I've seen all I can see I want to learn a completely new language, One I don't understand I want to help someone lost, someone helpless With the strength of my hand I want to come to the base of a statue built Before they counted the years And there I'll fall with my face in my hands And cry and feel their hope in my tears The revolution of the earth around the sun Is the perfect lesson of how it should be So if I cannot learn, to journey and return To never rest till I've seen all I can see Train rides and pastures colliding Colors and customs I've never seen I know I, yes I know I, I know I will stumble, but, Time is precious my friend Those who journey can easily understand The more they see, the more they'll learn, The more that they will be So this I swear to you, and this I swear to me I'll never rest till I've seen all I can see No, I'll never rest till I've seen all I can see I want to know where the stength of a person lies, In their past or their future Is it in the way that they hurt Or they love themselves, or is it all an illusion? I want to crawl from this skin that I'm painted in Body, please let it give I want to find the creator of all good things, Ask what it means to live

Where Were You

JACKSON BROWNE "Time The Conqueror"
Where were you when the sky cracked open? Heading for shelter and barely coping Thinking you could ride the storm out, Hoping it would be all right Where were you when they gave the warning? Hundred fifty-mile winds by morning Category four making landfall in the wild grey light Where were you? Where were you in the social order? The Lower Nine or a hotel in the Quarter Which side of the border between rich and poor? Where were you going to evacuate to? Assuming there was any way to Where, if you didn't own a car? Where were you? Where were you when you understood However decent, however good However hard some people try They only barely make it by They're born, and live their entire lives in harm's way Where were you when you heard the stranded, The injured and the empty handed Were running out of food and water at the Superdome? With the newborn and the elderly Exposed to even more misery While those in charge of rescue Waited for the Guard to come And those who left the Convention Center Were stopped on the bridge when they tried to enter The safety of the west bank, and higher ground And when the Guard finally did arrive And got to work on about day five Mainly they were used to keep the looting down Where were you? Where were you when you realized However strong, however wise However true our leaders appear to be When they talk about prosperity However hard this country strives If property is valued more than lives How strong will we ever really be? How long do we imagine we'll be free? We hold the truth self evident: The photograph of the President From Air Force One, he views the devastation Shaved face, rested eyes Looking down, he circles twice On his way home from his vacation Where were you, when you got the picture? Where were you? Where were you when the streets filled up with black water? Where were you when defeat and destruction Reigned in the Crescent Where were you when it blew from every direction Where were you when the promise was made To return, and rebuild, and restore to its people The city that gave us the first American music True inspiration and the freedom to use it Where will we find it again, if we lose it? And where will we be, if we ever cease to love? If we ever cease to love ...

I Can't Hear The Music

JAMES BLUNT "All The Lost Souls"
Is it a warning? Is it an evil sign? Is it a people who have lost their mind? Is it the Darkness? Is it a man resigned? Is it a best friend leaving you behind? Is it ever gonna stop? Will they ever let you go? You're in a rush, they don't care enough 'cause their lives are very slow. Time is ticking on. You don't get a second shot, And when you sell your soul for a leading role, will The Lost Souls be forgot? And if I can't hear the music and the audience is gone, I'll dance here on my own. And I hope the Lonely Hearts' Club Band will play out one last song, Before the sun goes down. And is it envy? Should it really make you sick? Is now the time that you realise you'd better get out quick? 'Cause time is ticking on too long to fake your smile, But then you sold your soul for a leading role, so wear it for a while. And if I can't hear the music and the audience is gone, I'll dance here on my own. And I hope the Lonely Hearts' Club Band will play out one last song, Before the sun goes down, And there she goes. And there she goes. So run, Yoshimi, run. 'Cause Billy's got himself a gun, And you're right to be afraid: they'll send you to your grave 'Cause you're strange and new. So run, Yoshimi, run. 'Cause Billy's got himself a gun, And you're right to be afraid: they'll send you to your grave 'Cause you're strange and new. And if I can't hear the music and the audience is gone, I'll dance.

Do You

JEWEL "Spirit"
Hey, you say you like the way the cowboys tip their hats and say, 'How's it goin' ma'am' But you're never quite clear if their glares are sincere Or really only just second hand To you it's all voices, its a lavender haze The man is a marvel, but it's a shame about his brains But that's OK You say 'he's got straight teeth and it's good sex' you look to the sky You look to the man you claim innocence and not to understand Or do you, do you There's a big mad wearing a white suit and patent leather shoes he want to take his monkeys to see the kids at the zoo 'Cause the gypsy on the corner said 'Hey, Mister you can't lose.' And it's your first day at the track you feel that beat of your back We all want to find a way to beat the system Find some rhythm in the madness Get down on your knees and pray Say, 'I'll do whatever you want, God Just let me have my way' Well will you, will you come on all you merry men rally your cry dance with the devil for tomorrow we'll surely Hey, hey blow the men down You with all girls today with nothing to say No more pigtails and pony rides They're sophisticated They sip on lattes And have their eyes on a bigger prize We shake our fists and say, 'Well good golly we're mad That God kills children with our very own hands' We claim innocence and not to understand Or do we, do we come on all you merry men Rally your cry dance with the devil for tomorrow we'll surely Hey, hey blow the men down Blow the men down Hey
