Wake Up!

Original and similar lyrics
They say good fences Make good neighbors For you my friend This might be true But you still gotta put The boards on the windows To the soul inside of you That t.v. in the corner That's their greatest tool They poison you mind When you're a child With their fear And their guilt And their rules They teach you that you're just a number As they program you in school So by the time you're out In their world on your own You've been trained not to bite The hand of the cruel Wake up! Don't believe that the system is failing Don't believe that the planet is dead They'll keep all the food for their fat fucking bellies And the starving will kill or be fed And they'll try to turn me against you So divided,we'll turn to them Because anything strong cannot be conquered from without Before first being conquered from within. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down. Life is a movie,we are all actors Don't let them edit you out. Life is a movie,we are all actors Don't let them edit you out. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down. Don't let them get you down.

Good To Go

JASON ALDEAN "Jason Aldean"
Waitin' at a stop light yesterday As a funeral procession made its way, Through the gates. I watched it roll up a winding road, Through a field of green with white headstones, All in a row. And it made me think about where I'm at, On my not so straight and narrow path... All the generous and mostly undeserved, Blessings that I've had. I had an all-American Mom and Dad, Some of the coolest friends you could ever have. Found love I thought I'd never find... Sometimes I can't believe this life is mine. And I'm not plannin' on leavin' yet, But the truth is, you just never know, An' if this is as good as it gets, Man, I think I'm good to go, I'm good to go. I said a prayer for the dearly departed, An, the loved ones left broken hearted, Then traffic started. An' I drove away a little more able, To see the good things on my table, And that I'm grateful. 'Cause I've had my troubles, I've had my trials; I've hit the mark an' I've missed by miles. Had days that I've been fightin' mad, But the good times have more than outweighed the bad. Got to hold my newborn baby girl, And the hand of a man as he slipped from this world. I've laughed so hard, I couldn't stop, Seen the sunrise from a mountain top. And I'm not plannin' on leavin' yet, But the truth is, you just never know, An' if this is as good as it gets, Man, I think I'm good to go. [Instrumental Break] Yeah, I've been thinkin' bout where I'm at, On my not so straight and narrow path, An' I wouldn't wanna change nothin' about, This "roll with the punches" life I've had. I had an all-American Mom and Dad, Some of the coolest friends you could ever have. Found love I thought I'd never find... I can't believe this life is mine. And I'm not plannin' on leavin' yet, But the truth is, you just never know, An' if this is as good as it gets, Man, I think I'm good to go, I'm good to go. I'm good to go.

C'mon

ATMOSPHERE "Leak At Will"
C'mon [repeated] When he was a kid he was the joker Low potential, straight mediocre Class clown, sneak off out the back door Long hair leave a grease spot on the black board C'mon honey take off that bra Tryin to hit a homerun in your mom's garage He loved graffiti, it opened him Creeped down the alley with a can of rustoleum Canvas, that flat surface He learned quick to control the nervousness If it aint buildin he burnt the bridge And no he dont give a damn what the curfew is Chased away all the saving grace While them old folks bitch about the way hes raised Southside Minneatmosphere Get ya running from the cops just for practice here Well what do ya know he got older Trying to apply what childhood showed him Everybody left out in that cold To try to learn how to manage all that weight on his shoulders We all want the easy life a piece of the pie that'll keep us high So turn it up til' the speakers cry And don't quit til' you reach the sky, c'mon c'mon [repeated] And as an adult he took a good look Stayed away from the gangs and the crooks Even though he came from the same neighborhood So he fully understood that gang textbook Stay original be individual Push the pedal and never settle for the typical Feed your children look out for your people Live and let live and each one teach those Good luck get a tight defense And i hope you can depend on your higher sense Blanked emcees let em grow for The followers, felons, the fallen soldiers Hey rapper, we know it don't stop But don't forget about the folks on your block hey dopeman what you doin with the cash crop fuckin up gettin fat, fuckin up fellow have nots hey preacher, politician is that the house you live in how's the kitchen hey policeman dont bother even as a kid i only played robbers and robbers headphone activists aggressive pacifists i aint saying you gotta kill cops just look at your life check what its built off c'mon [repeated]

Joe

Cole Jude
I go to church on Sunday morning Come home and beat my wife My name is Joe, and you know me I've lived here all of my (damn) life What a life I've got this pain I cannot speak of I'm not so bad as people say Got two kids who look like angels But sometimes Sometimes I wish they'd fly away Life is good, you know we're lucky Living in the U.S.A. We've got everything we ever dreamed of Darling, I don't know why I don't know why I act this way My next-door neighbor's got a problem He works (so) hard, it don't seem fair His wife's a teacher at the grade school And we've been having this affair I've been a son, I've been a soldier I've thrown the football in the rain The blood of murderers and millionaires is pounding Pounding, pounding through my veins But life is good, you know we're lucky Living in the U.S. of A. And we got everything we ever dreamed of Baby, I don't know why I don't know why I act this way Kennedy was in the White House We were children in the sun Smoking candy cigarettes Cowboys and Indians with toy guns Some nights I go down to the basement With thoughts I do not understand A Purple Heart and a loaded pistol, and I just hold 'em Hold 'em in my hands Life is good, you know we're lucky 'Cause baby, this is the U.S.A. And we got everything we ever dreamed of Darling, I don't know why No, I don't know why I act this way I don't know why I act this way No, I don't know why I act this way

A Passion Play (Part 2)

JETHRO TULL "A Passion Play"
[The Story Of The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles] [Words by Jeffrey Hammond] [Spoken:] This is the story of the hare who lost his spectacles. Owl loved to rest quietly whilst no one was watching. Sitting on a fence one day, he was surprised when suddenly a kangaroo ran close by. Now this may not seem strange, but when Owl overheard Kangaroo whisper to no one in particular, "The hare has lost his spectacles," well, he began to wonder. Presently, the moon appeared from behind a cloud and there, lying on the grass was hare. In the stream that flowed by the grass a newt. And sitting astride a twig of a bush a bee. Ostensibly motionless, the hare was trembling with excitement, for without his spectacles he was completely helpless. Where were his spectacles? Could someone have stolen them? Had he mislaid them? What was he to do? Bee wanted to help, and thinking he had the answer began: "You probably ate them thinking they were a carrot." "No!" interrupted Owl, who was wise. "I have good eye-sight, insight, and foresight. How could an intelligent hare make such a silly mistake?" But all this time, Owl had been sitting on the fence, scowling! Kangaroo were hopping mad at this sort of talk. She thought herself far superior in intelligence to the others. She was their leader, their guru. She had the answer: "Hare, you must go in search of the optician." But then she realized that Hare was completely helpless without his spectacles. And so, Kangaroo loudly proclaimed, "I can't send Hare in search of anything!" "You can guru, you can!" shouted Newt. "You can send him with Owl." But Owl had gone to sleep. Newt knew too much to be stopped by so small a problem "You can take him in your pouch." But alas, Hare was much too big to fit into Kangaroo's pouch. All this time, it had been quite plain to hare that the others knew nothing about spectacles. [Sung:] As for all their tempting ideas, well Hare didn't care. The lost spectacles were his own affair. And after all, Hare did have a spare a-pair. A-pair. [Forest Dance #2 (Instrumental)] [The Foot Of Our Stairs] We sleep by the ever-bright hole in the door, eat in the corner, talk to the floor, cheating the spiders who come to say "Please", (politely). They bend at the knees. Well, I'll go to the foot of our stairs. Old gentlemen talk of when they were young of ladies lost and erring sons. Lace-covered dandies revel (with friends) pure as the truth, tied at both ends. Well I'll go to the foot of our stairs. Scented cathedral spire pointed down. We pray for souls in Kentish Town. A delicate hush the gods, floating by wishing us well, pie in the sky. God of ages, Lord of Time, mine is the right to be wrong. Well I'll go to the foot of our stairs. Jack rabbit mister spawn a new breed of love-hungry pilgrims (no bodies to feed). Show me a good man and I'll show you the door. The last hymn is sung and the devil cries "More." Well, I'm all for leaving and that being done, I've put in a request to take up my turn in that forsaken paradise that calls itself "Hell" where no-one has nothing and nothing is well meaning fool, pick up thy bed and rise up from your gloom smiling. Give me your hate and do as the loving heathen do. [Overseer Overture] Colours I've none, dark or light, red, white or blue. Cold is my touch (freezing). Summoned by name - I am the overseer over you. Given this command to watch o'er our miserable sphere. Fallen from grace, called on to bring sun or rain. Occasional corn from my oversight grew. Fell with mine angels from a far better place, offering services for the saving of face. Now you're here, you may as well admire all whom living has retired from the benign reconciliation. Legends were born surrounding mysterious lights seen in the sky (flashing). I just lit a fag then took my leave in the blink of an eye. Passionate play join round the maypole in dance (primitive rite) (wrongly). Summoned by name I am the overseer over you. [Flight From Lucifer] Flee the icy Lucifer. Oh he's an awful fellow! What a mistake! I didn't take a feather from his pillow. Here's the everlasting rub... neither am I good or bad. I'd give up my halo for a horn and the horn for the hat I once had. I'm only breathing. There's life on my ceiling. The flies there are sleeping quietly. Twist my right arm in the dark. I would give two or three for one of those days that never made impressions on the old score. I would gladly be a dog barking up the wrong tree. Everyone's saved we're in the grave. See you there for afternoon tea. Time for awaking the tea lady's making a brew-up and baking new bread. Pick me up at half past none there's not a moment to lose. There is the train on which I came. On the platform are my old shoes. Station master rings his bell. Whistles blow and flags wave. A little of what you fancy does you good (Or so it should). I thank everybody for making me welcome. I'd stay but my wings have just dropped off. [10.08 To Paddington (Instrumental)] [Magus Perde] Hail! Son of kings make the ever-dying sign cross your fingers in the sky for those about to BE. There am I waiting along the sand. Cast your sweet spell upon the land and sea. Magus Perde, take your hand from off the chain. Loose a wish to still, the rain, the storm about to BE. Here am I (voyager into life). Tough are the soles that tread the knife's edge. Break the circle,stretch the line, call upon the devil. Bring the gods, the gods' own fire In the conflict revel. The passengers upon the ferry crossing, waiting to be born, renew the pledge of life's long song rise to the reveille horn. Animals queueing at the gate that stands upon the shore breathe the ever-burning fire that guards the ever-door. Man - son of man - buy the flame of ever-life (yours to breathe and breath the pain of living)... living BE! Here am I! Roll the stone away from the dark into ever-day. [Epilogue] There was a rush along the Fulham Road into the Ever-passion Play.
