The Great Depression

Original and similar lyrics
I think we must have all gone mad Maybe right turned over They promise us the earth Instead we've got the great depression Now you're free and easy with the base You blame your brothers and sisters And neurotics say sod the rest It's the new dissention Into the abyss By pushing forwards It's always down It's a desperate war You're trying to blow yourselves up You don't care who you stand... with the help about Hey heywell that's not the way No sense or reason in your fussing and fighting And your violent obsession Who's ever really left feeling fine After the great depression? No sense of purpose in the competion Keeping up with the Jones's You buy a house, You buy a car You buy a marriage and a bed of roses Into the abyss By pushing forwards It's always down It's a desperate war You're trying to blow yourselves up You don't care who you stand ... with the help about Hey hey well That's not the way

Me And You (Against The World)

JOE JACKSON "Blaze Of Glory"
If I could be two places at one time I'd be with you I've lost my heart I'm losing half my mind but i don't care Don't tell me don't ask me don't talk at all Don't help me I don't know if I can stand The bitter-sweetness of it all I don't know I don't care don't even hear what they all say There's no past there's no future and no fear what can they do I'm helpless I can't talk or even stand My heart won't start until I get from you The look that says you love me too Me and you against the world I've read the Bible and those books at school but they don't make much sense of this The finest minds are calling me a fool But you destroy them with your kiss Just one kiss

Tropical Depression

ALAN JACKSON "A Lot About Livin' (And A Little 'Bout Love)"
I thought some time in the sun Would help me get over you But I could tell from day one This is a place meant for two Now here I sit on the beach Watching the tide ebb and flow I booked my room for a week But now I'm ready to go I'm in a tropical depression I've got the blue water blues Can't shake this loving you obsession Can't stand this sand in my shoes This forgetting you vacation Is just a fool's holiday If I can't get over you This tropical depression is gonna Blow me away This should be paradise Heaven down by the sea Without you here by my side It feels like hell to me I'm in a tropical depression I've got the blue water blues Can't shake this loving you obsession Can't stand this sand in my shoes This forgetting you vacation Is just a fool's holiday If I can't get over you This tropical depression is gonna Blow me away If I can't get over you This tropical depression is gonna Blow me away

Mental Evaluation

ABK (ANYBODY KILLA) "Medicine Bag"
I don't care what they think about me [x3] (Evaluation) My mental evaluation says I need help [x2] I reposition in a, Fatal position then ill, Choke him out until he's Out of commission then I'll, Drive around looking where I can ditch him a Dark road out of town with no sign of a witness (woo!) I don't care about a punk ass shrink, all he wants is the medicate the way I think, (here take this) And I can do that shit on my own 'cause I don't need no help from some unknown Head therapist telling me how it is (Hell naw) He tryna get me to tell him my bizz (Hell naw) I'm getting pissed I don't need this fool, Thinking that I'm gonna break down and trust you?

Help You Stand

ANTHEM LIGHTS "You Have My Heart"
Picked up the phone again Put it right back down That was such a lame attempt To try to help you out If I said to myself I'm not scared I'd be lying Don't know if I know what to say But I'm trying So I'm picking up the phone again I hear you fell down I'm here to let you know Not giving up Not gonna let you go I'm not judging I'm just loving Not pointing my finger When I'm reaching out my hand I just want to help you stand Oh oh oh oh Just want to help you stand Oh oh oh oh The tone that's in your voice I can recognize The shaking from your choice I can empathize If I said I had never been there I'd be lying Jesus picked me up when I was crying Broken down on the ground That's why I'm calling you now I hear you fell down I'm here to let you know Not giving up Not gonna let you go I'm not judging I'm just loving Not pointing my finger When I'm reaching out my hand I just want to help you stand Oh oh oh oh Just want to help you stand Oh oh oh oh He'll meet you where you are He loves you where you are He's not pointing a finger He's just reaching out his hand Oh oh oh oh He'll meet you where you are He loves you where you are He's not pointing a finger He's just reaching out his hand He just wants to help you stand I hear you fell down I'm here to let you know Not giving up Not gonna let you go I'm not judging I'm just loving Not pointing my finger [x3] When I'm reaching out my hand I just want to help you stand I just want to help you stand

Protection

MASSIVE ATTACK "Protection"
[Tracy Thorn] This girl I know needs some shelter She don't believe anyone can help her She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage But you don't want to get involved You tell her she can manage And you can't change the way she feels But you could put your arms around her I know you want to live yourself But could you forgive yourself If you left her just the way You found her I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection You're a boy and i'm a girl But you know you can lean on me And I don't have no fear I'll take on any man here Who says that's not the way it should be I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection She's a girl and you're a boy Sometimes you look so small, look so small You've got a baby of your own When your baby's gone, she'll be the one To catch you when you fall I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection You're a girl and i'm a boy [x4] Sometimes you look so small, need some shelter Just runnin' round and round, helter skelter And I've leaned on me for years Now you can lean on me And that's more than love, that's the way it should be Now I can't change the way you feel But I can put my arms around you That's just part of the deal That's the way I feel I'll put my arms around you I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection I stand in front of you I'll take the force of the blow Protection You're a boy and i'm a girl [x4]
