King

Original and similar lyrics
King, where are your people now? Chained and pacified. Tried in vain to show them how. And for that you died. You had a dream of a promised land. People of all nations walking hand in hand But they're not ready to accept That dream situation, yet. King, where are your people now? Chained and pacified. Tried in vain to show them how. And for that you died.

The King Will Return

EUROPE "Europe"
They were attacked by surprise in the middle of the night They didn't stand a single chance A single chance to fight After the battle they gathered around the king they had never seen that man so sad I'm riding out to get those men who hurt my people bad, so bad The king will return with gold in his hand The castle will burn in the enemy land And he will save our people When two springs had passed a messanger came down the track He said that he heard a great news The king is coming back All the time he was gone They suffered bad in misery They didn't know they way Everyone was shouting Save our kingdom now They suffered bad in pain The time he was away But maybe now they could survive Now they could survive When the king came down the hill To his people and his land There were many tears that touched the ground They marched in the sand Yes, now they could start all over again And live in peace throughout time Everyone was shouting when the king came down the hill The king is returning with gold in his hand The castle is burning in the enemy land the king is....

Living My Dream

KING LIL G "AK47 Boyz"
[Verse 1 - King Lil G:] People say they love The way I do my hustle They love the way I treat my people How I'm stayin' humble This is to my fans I never told you this I never got a chance to tell you But I owe you this I hope I get a chance to meet you We could smoke to this And we could talk about life And where to go from this You going through some drama We got things in common My success is the reflection Of negative comments And negative people Who say I don't deserve it I guess I gotta break it down On how the fuck I earned it I never paid to get on songs With a famous person Recorded songs in my garage Even on my birthday Late nights I had no help No record label I told you I it did by myself Recognition On a independent scale I wish freedom To my homies in jail [Hook - Carolyn Rodriguez:] Smoke the finest of trees I'm flyin' so free And feeling the breeze And finally I'm.. Living my dream This is what I prayed for Living my dream I'm so grateful [Verse 2 - ISuppose:] Yo, I was 19 strugglin Thinkin' bout givin' up Thinkin' life as a shorty Shouldn't be so rough Mama said get a job Daddy said he needed funds for the rent Move forward Haven't looked back since I remember back then Everybody said I was dope Then time pass & I was broke And everybody lost hope Now its back to the block Dealin' coke Chillin' with the hustlas Lost faith in my dreams I knew that I was fucking up Pockets had a hundred bucks My heart had a lot of pain Told the world my story And it hasn't been the same Now I'm travelin' the world Breakin' bread with my team Woke up from a nightmare Now I'm livin' my dream So here's a middle finger For the ones who said I couldn't do it And a toast for my fans worldwide That bump my music Without you I'm useless Always know what's you're worth I don't sign record deals Cause I rather sign a shirt [Hook - Carolyn Rodriguez] [Verse 3 - Self Provoked:] Yo, myspace, myspace When my face was first seen And heard music player Playing my verse I learned many things in the game And dick riding wasn't one Seen the fan base grow My haters learned to love But not all I write on the flaws that I have done Commit to staying true Never glorify the gun If sidetracked My fans remind me to drop something Reminiscent bout the shows And the other fun things A crowd full of people could make A different city feel like home Especially, when I hear them chant On a high note Can't be an idol but an example Of all the obstacles We got yet to trample I'm planting all my seeds Along this game never wrote The outcome is all these ears That allow me to grow And as the number keep growing I swear to you That I won't ever fall victim Of losing sight of my conscious mind [Hook - Carolyn Rodriguez]

My Country

RANDY NEWMAN
Let's go back to yesterday When a phone call cost a dime In New Orleans, just a nickel Turn back the hands of time Turn back the hands of time Picture a room With a window A sofa and some chairs A television turned on for the night Picture a woman, two children seated A man lying there Their faces softly glowing in the light This is my country These are my people This is the world I understand This is my country These are my people And I know 'em like the back of my own hand If we had something to say We bounced it off the screen We were watching and we couldn't look away We all knew what we looked like You know what I mean We wouldn't have it any other way We got comedy, tragedy Everything from A to B Watching other people living Seeing other people play Having other people's voices fill our minds Thank you Jesus Feelings might go unexpressed I think that's probably for the best Dig too deep, who knows what you will find This is my country Those were my people Theirs was a world I understand. Picture a room, no window A door that leads outside A man lying on a blanket on the floor Picture his three grown boys behind him Bouncing words off of a screen Of a television big as all outdoors Now your children are your children Even when they're grown When they speak to you You got to listen to what they have to say But they all live alone now They have TVs of their own But they keep on coming over anyway And much as I love them I'm always kind of glad when they go away This is my country These are my people This is the world I understand This is my country These are my people And I know 'em like the back of my own hand I know 'em like the back of my own hand

King Of Anything

KARMIN "Karmin Covers, Vol. 1"
Keep drinkin' coffee Stare me down across the table While I look outside So many things I'd say if only I were able But I just keep quiet And count the cars that pass by You've got opinions, man We're all entitled to 'em But I never asked So let me thank you for your time And try to not waste any more of mine Get out of here fast I hate to break it to you, babe But I'm not drowning There's no one here to save Who cares if you disagree? You are not me Who made you king of anything? So you dare tell me who to be Who died and made you king of anything? Oh (oh oh oh) You sound so innocent All full of good intent You swear you know best But you expect me to Jump up on board with you And ride off into your delusional sunset I'm not the one who's lost With no direction oh But you'll never see You're so busy makin' maps With my name on them in all caps You've got the talkin' down Just not the listening And who cares if you disagree? You are not me Who made you king of anything? So you dare tell me who to be Who died and made you king of anything? All my life I've tried To make everybody happy while I Just hurt And hide Waitin' for somebody to tell me it's my turn To decide. Oh (oh oh oh) Oh (oh oh oh) Who cares if you disagree? You are not me. Who made you king of anything? So you dare tell me who to be. Who died and made you king of anything? Who cares if you disagree? You are not me. Who made you king of anything? And you dare tell me who to be. Who died and made you king of anything? Let me hold your crown, babe. Oh ohhhhhhhhhhh yeah yeah

Land Of No Body

Eloy
we just leave the earths ground on the way to see the new star we forget the past time released from our imperfection molecular illusion going on to confuse our minds born in a world of conflicts we don't recognize ourselves then in the dying sun here we saw the sight we saw the birth of a planet we saw a world without sorrows without the eager far as of mind of money we walking throught the land unrecognized we're back to the earth again creatures come from nowhere and find somewhere our place we want freedom we want freedom for the world power to the people and the righteous in the land that's why we now in turn fight for them we saw our world where life is around we saw the people there living in the past but they are happy and then laughing they feel like they're mice now when they build the sky above there's a lot of happiness walls of conflict going smash I found the end of the dream listen here crashing down my mind there reality is gray with no hope and fame I start a journey to inside waking my first term I just returned to my dream where I'm coming from
