SHOOTER JENNINGS lyrics - Black Ribbons

Last Light Radio 11:41 PM

Original and similar lyrics
As I've been cleaning up around here, I've been thinking about the ten plus years I've spent talking to you every night. I've got the original microphone from when I used to broadcast from a pirate station. Not way up there where the air is rare, but from the filthy basement with poodles of ooze on the floor. And I used to rap into that mike; that's what we called it: RAPPING. With my God-damned Uncle Sam button pinned to one side of my chest and the one that said "killing for peace is like fucking for chastity" on the other. Still got those buttons too, hahahaha, it's been a great ride. We could make it through this hard time folks, feel our way through this darkness, but it's gonna take time and it's gonna cost lives. Yet the answer IS self evident; like those truths we used to hold dear; and the love of mankind may still come out on top. Our children's children might still live in a better world, more beautiful world. Do I believe that, hee, yeah. With a glass of Jack in one hand, I manage. This next song is pure nostalgia at this point; harking back to a time when the world economy was going down the shitter, and we really believed that things couldn't get any worse. Haha, but what did we know? The costs turned out to be higher than all the government bailouts and stimulus packages combined. Here's some real stimulus, Summer of Rage, by Hierophant. I'm Will 'O the Wisp.

ALANIS MORISSETTE "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie"
dear matthew I like you a lot I realize you're in a relationship with someone right now and I respect that I would like you to know that if you're ever single in the future and you want to come visit me in california I would be open to spending time with you and finding out how old you were when you wrote your first song dear jonathan I liked you too much I used to be attracted to boys who would lie to me and think solely about themselves and you were plenty self-destructive for my taste at the time I used to say the more tragic the better the truth is whenever I think of the early 90's your face comes up with a vengeance like it was yesterday dear terrance I love you muchly you've been nothing but open hearted and emotionally available and supportive and nurturing and consummately there for me I kept drawing you in and pushing you away I remember how beautiful it was to fall asleep on your couch and cry in front of you for the first time you were the best platform from which to jump beyond myself what was wrong with me dear marcus you rocked my world you had a charismatic way about you with the women and you got me seriously thinking about spirituality and you wouldn't let me get away with kicking my own ass but I could never really feel relaxed and looked out for around you though and that stopped us from going any further than we did and it's kinda too bad becasue we could've had much more fun dear lou we learned so much I realize we won't be able to talk for some time and I understand that as I do you the long distance thing was the hardest and we did as well as we could we were together during a very tumultuous time in our lives I will always have your back and be curious about you about your career , your whereabouts

Band Of The Hand (It's Hell Time Man!)

BOB DYLAN "Love And Theft"
Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Down these streets the fools rule There's no freedom or self respect, A knife's point or a trip to the joint Is about all you can expect. They kill people here who stand up for their rights, The system's just too damned corrupt It's always the same, the name of the game Is who do you know higher up. Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand The blacks and the whites, The idiotic, the exotic, Wealth is a filthy rag So erotic so unpatriotic So wrapped up in the American flag. Witchcraft scum exploiting the dumb, Turning children into punks and slaves Whose heroes and healers are rich drug dealers Who should be put in their graves. Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Listen to me Mr. Pussyman This might be your last night in a bed so soft We're not pimps on the make, politicians on the take, You can't pay us off. We're gonna blow up your home of Voodoo And watch it burn without any regret We got the power we're the new government, You just don't know it yet. Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand For all of my brothers from Vietnam And my uncles from World War II, I'd like to say that it's countdown time now And we're gonna do what the law should do. And for you pretty baby, I know you've seen it all. I know your story is too painful to share. One day though you'll be talking in your sleep And when you do, I wanna be there. Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand Band of the hand

Matchbook Romance "Stories And Alibis"
we drive tonight, and you are by my side. We're talking about our lives, like we've known each other forever. the time flies by, with the sound of your voice. its close to paradise, with the end surely near. and if i could only stop the car and hold onto you, and never let go... i'll never let go. as we round the corner to your house you turned to me and said, 'i'll be going through withdrawl of you for this one night we have spent.' and, i want to speak these words but i guess i'll just bite my tongue, and accept 'someday, somehow' as the words that we'll hang from. and i... don't want to speak these words. cause i, don't want to make things anyworse. why does tonite, have to end? why don't we hit restart, and pause it at our favorite parts. we'll skip the goodbyes. if i had it my way, i'd turn the car around and runaway, just you and i. and i... don't want to speak these words. cause i, don't want to make things anyworse.

Roadkill

AVATAR "Avatar"
We're heading for failure We're all gonna die It's the code of the roadkill It's the call of the night Our force is stronger than ever And the flames grow higher now And there's no way to make us stop, NO! We're going down Crawl through Gehenna It is crossing our path Some will be crushed and some will still stand Whatever the cost we'll deliver And we'll all be remembered forever Raise your glass for all the roadkills on the side of the road Our brothers who died by death 'n' roll In the end we all will be roadkills out in the cold Sister, you wen and sold your soul May God show mercy on your soul We're in for the pleasure We're in for the ride It's the way of the living It's the way we will die Our anger is stronger than ever And our bounds are tighter now And there's no time to get away, NO! We'll take this town

Lovers In A Dangerous Time

LUCKY DUBE "Victims"
He built this wall around himself Many years ago To protect himself from being hurt again But he couldn' t stop his feelings Last night yeah When he saw the young lady in the bar Blonde hair, blue eyes Waited till the band played the last song And took her home His mother didn' t like her His father didn' t like her The only thing that kept them Going was knowing that Love would conquer all Chorus: They were lovers In a dangerous time They ran away to another country 'Cause they thought things would be Better for them out there In the month of December They got married in Chicago And it was all the same Everywhere they went Heads would turn Chorus till fade
