THE JAM lyrics - Setting Sons

Little Boy Soldiers

Original and similar lyrics
Its funny how you never knew what my name was, Our only contact was a form for the election. These days I find that you don't listen, These days I find that we're out of touch, These days I find that I'm too busy, So why the attention now you want my assistance - What have you done for me. You've gone and got yourself in trouble, No you want me to help you out. These days I find that I can't be bothered, These days I find that its all too much, To pick up a gun and shoot a stranger, But I've got no choice so here I come - war games. I'm up on the hills, playing little boy soldiers, Reconnaissance duty up at 5:30. Shoot shoot shoot and kill the natives, You're one of us and we love you for that. Think of honour, Queen and country, You're a blessed son of the British Empire, God's on our side and so is Washington. Come out on the hills with the little boy soldiers. Come on outside - I'll sing you a lullaby, Or tell a tale of how goodness prevailed. We ruled the world - we killed and robbed, The fucking lot - but we don't feel bad. It was done beneath the flag of democracy, You'll believe and I do - yes I do - yes I do - yes I do - These days I find that I can't be bothered, To argue withthem well what's the point, Better to take your shots and drop down dead, then they send you home in a pine overcoat With a letter to your mum Saying find enclosed one son - one medal and a note - to say he won.

Beautiful In Blue

ALESANA
Silence screams, "you're just so beautiful in blue" Breathless stares escape your undying eyes Are you blind to my sorrow and sympathy? A piece of me will die with your last breath... This will all be over soon for you are so lost inside Glazed eyes long for the waves' embrace Drawn to an end so near... Far away are days when you smiled just to hear my voice Why are you trying to run away? My love, I can't find the words to tell you... Drown all of your fantasies Silent angel crashes through the sky With your final broken promise Having lost sight of the stars Regail me with your tales of lonely, bittersweet loss Giving up comes too easy when hope is gone I'll walk away so you can choke on your dying breath But if you side against me, to hell with you... Far away are days when you smiled just to hear my voice Why are you trying to run away? My love, I can't find the words to tell you... The fear has stolen her heart as she wakes from her dream Treacherous ink finds her lungs, seizing her screams Numb hands now reach too late to take back the light Far away are days when you smiled just to hear my voice Why are you trying to run away? My love, I can't find the words to tell you... Far away are days when you smiled... Seas cry out butchering this tragic soul without hope Their frailty is broken and now fades into the blue...

Big Ol' Fire

DIAMOND RIO "Completely"
One of these days you'll turn around And wanna get out of this someday town Well people gonna laugh you know what they'll say You're never gonna get away Well there'll be fear and there'll be doubt But they're just things that'll slow you down Just put ‘em all in a great big pile And stand back Chorus And burn, baby like a big ol' fire Build it up with your one desire And one of these days you just might change their minds Shine the light, blind ‘em by A big ol' fire A big ol' fire And one of these days you'll find someone Who lights you up like the rising sun But he's been hurt and he won't feel Like handin' you a heart of steel Well don't you run now just you stay ‘Cause you're the one that can melt away The loneliness down in his heart Just take him in your arms 2nd Chorus And burn baby like a big ol' fire Build it up with your one desire And one of these days you just might find the love You're dreaming of, risin' up a big ol' fire Bridge And when you get to where you're goin' All you'll leave behind is ashes smolderin' When you find the love you've always wanted Never let it die Repeat 1st chorus

Normal Days

NONPOINT "Development"
Strange Days are normal. Trying to find the words, making my mind up from what you've heard. Winding down you're just finding what indifference you're having today. Make your mind up it's never the same. Sinking down, ceiling climbing, while you're up to your neck in the same situation and start to complain. Trying to find the words, making my mind up from what you've heard. You can't fool me with your smiles. Seen you treat whom you call your friends, and you'll never be called that again. Been on your knees for a while, searching through broken glass with your hands, can i offer you gloves again Trying to find the words, making my mind up from what you've heard. The way, the time, the chance, a glance, a second look at your stance on the way the day could change strange days to normal days.

Shoot Off Your Mouth

MICK JAGGER "Primitive Cool"
You say you love me Why do you always do me down down down? I hit rock bottom You gave me up without sound, sound, sound But now I'm back in town and feeling mighty fit I'm sick and tired of eating all your chicken shit So keep on looking for me Once I was lost but now I'm found, found, found I was a rising star You hitched your wagon next to mine, mine, mine The sun was shining bright I guess I never read the sign, sign, sign Right at the moment that you saw my hand first slip Just like a dirty rat you jumped the sinking ship So keep on looking for me Once I was lost but now I'm found, found, found Find me in the palace Find me on the street Find me back in church Right in my favourite seat Now you're a notch on my gun Who are you to shoot off your mouth? Wild-eyed and crazy I always threw my cash around, round, round You put the boot in Until the bottom fell right out, out, out I turned around You smell like Monday morning's fish I can't get near enough to take a goodbye kiss So keep on looking for me Once I was lost but now I'm found, found, found Find me in the movies Right on the TV screen Keep on searching for me And you will hear me scream Now you're a notch on my gun Now you're a notch on my gun Who are you to shoot off your mouth? Shoot off your mouth But now I'm back in town and feeling mighty fit I'm sick and tired of eating all your chicken shit So keep on looking for me Once I was lost but now I'm found, found, found Find me in the palace Find me on the street Find me back in church Right in my favourite seat Now you're a notch on my gun Who are you to shoot off your mouth? Shoot off your mouth Shoot off your mouth Shoot off your Don't shoot, don't shoot, don't shoot Don't shoot, don't shoot, don't shoot
