A Better Tomorrow

Original and similar lyrics
[Inspectah Deck] Yo, this goes for all my brothers and sisters locked down For all my peoples incarcerated, for those who ain't make it Yo, in the housing, thousands seen early graves Victims of wordly ways, memories stays engraved All my live brothers, is locked down with high numbers The young hunger, blind to these lies, they die younger In this New World the Order slaughter men, women, and children Ten feet gates surround the building keep us sealed in The projects, lifeless like a vietnam vet Constant war, sever threats of enemy conquest Crooked cops comb my building complex that's in the rumble Streets are like a jungle, can't let my cypher crumble Vivid thoughts, Devils resort to trick knowledge They kick garbage, lust for chicks and quick dollars I know the pain the game bring, I did the same thing Spaced out in the staircase, performing a sting It's hard to keep control, I bless those who seek a scroll Trying to reach a whole nation and break the sleeper hold Not a role model, I walk a hard road to follow I sold bottles of sorrow then chose poems and novels The gospel was told, some souls it swallowed whole Mentally they fold, and they eventually sold their life and times, deadly like the virus design but too, minute to dilute, the scientist mind You can't party your life away Drink your life away Smoke your life away Fuck your life away Dream your life away Scheme your life away Cause your seeds grow up the same way [Masta Killa] A voice cries from the wilderness of the North A representation of the families that lost one all victims of incarceration Or other divisions of the family structure Youths are injected with serums that leads to skin irritations, babies being born with disfigurations, experimentations On their faces there bear world relations of mothers that carry the pain of blood stained streets where sisters mourn and wail Fifth brothers been slain from hails of gun fire It lightly begins to rain screams of terror are hidden by the passing trains This can't be little Hussein, his uncle cried As he drops to his nephew's side, holding his cane Just give me a name, of who has inflicted this bitter sickness, and left us to witness [U-God] Yeah, yo Curses from war, innocent blood spills for days Soothe in godly ways, hands, solemn in praise Tree of life, more precious than Wu is golden game The wise self flourish inherit, Halls of Fame Crime visions in my blood got me, locked in prison While we die hard living people whine about religion, vision Blow, spin, and sin and killing what's revealing It's a never ending battle with no ending or beginning, listen Zero process, progress, become the hunted America's most wanted, good life flaunted, want it Some love the speed, some satisfy a need Some want to be down, young gun seed, jungle breed The strong must feed, someone die, someone bleed One flew astray, and then caught my little seed Can it be, the ice have us trife life, made me grab the knife The righteous man would be within these stripes pipes Take in my energy, breath and know the rest Cause the good die young and the hard die best You can't party your life away Drink your life away Smoke your life away Fuck your life away Dream your life away Scheme your life away Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way [RZA] Y'all bitches love dances, and pulling down your pants while your man's on tour, your spending up his advances Your friends ain't shit, all they do is drink, smoke, and suck dick The whole projects is trapped in stench You either high school drop-outs, one to three cop-outs Fifteen years old, shorty ass and top out Ninety-nine cent beer drinking pussy stinking Fucking so much your ass and titties start shrinking New World Order slave trade, minimum wage, Medicaid Can a devil fool a Muslim nowadays Inside my lab, I'm going mad Took two drags off the blunts, and started breaking down the flag The blue is for the Crips, the red is for the Bloods The whites for the cops, and the stars come from the clubs or the slugs that ignites, through the night, by the dawn Early light, why is sons fighting for the stripe [Method Man] As we dwell through this concrete hell, calling it home Mama say, take your time young man and build your own Don't wind up like your old dad Still searching for them glory days he never had So many bad want to scheme for American dream, no more kings The cash rule everything now, we going down These babies looking up to us, it's up to us The Million Man March MC's, get on the bus But envy, greed, lust, and hate, separate Though the devil mind state blood kin cannot relate No longer, brothers, we unstable Like Kane when he slew Abel, killing each other You can't party your life away Drink your life away Smoke your life away Fuck your life away Dream your life away Scheme your life away Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way Cause your seeds grow up the same way

Crimson

Edge Of Sanity
Crimson Prologue: In a very distant future, the last generation of planet earth has come to a point where they cannot brred anymore. When everybody had lost their faith, a child was born, but no one could be the father, except for a god. This child was a gift from the skies of life-divine or... Another sky is young... Another frozen future has passed. Another breed, another cast. The rivers will run, brought to life by the sun, the circle is still unbroken. Oh, what a sight to see. Reborn life, destined for all eternity. Hail the king! For he has chosen not to drain the godsent child, a gift from the skies of life divine. Now we know. A glimpse of hope grow inside, a change of tide. Answered prayers of survival. Miracles. The offspring of the unknown gods beautifies the aura of this dying breed. So they succeed in their quest for continued time. Celebrate. The knowledge of the everlasting, never-dying. Cursed to be walkin in the shadows of death for a lifetime. No more fears for what the years will bring. Rebuild the shattered dream. And now a brighter future has come, another end remains undone and an era begins, bringing life free from sins. Oh, it's a token, the circle is broken. (The drop of blood from her mouth slowly fell down to the ground. Th child inside dried her out. The king's beloved is no more.) The chosen one felt the time had come to show the world what had grown within. This day of life, a sacred moment in time, when joy and pain collide. It takes a life to create a life. Now she's gone. Anger and hate. fear and despair fills up his mind. In search for answers he can't find. What god would end a life so pure. She was the one worth dying for. Alone with princess angel-sent. Her eyes so blue, my hate relents. Her destiny is in my hands. She was born to rule these desert lands. ( Vocals Mike: ) [A sacrifice. A life arises, when one love has come, another dies. I let her go and I do not know where to find her soul so alo- ne.] Oh, does she hold the power, is she a blessing from the skies? Is this the answer to where the secret lies. And in her eyes I see a light is shining through. I feel that there is hope for a world so brave and new. Many seasons have changed and the king is old and weak. The princess has come of age, but still the gift of life they seek. In the chambers of crimson sleep. In this vault of souls to reap. The future lies in the hands of the shrewd (Harmony: Andreas) or the earth will die in solitude. The darkest night the enchanted skies were united in a storm. Unholiness and all that's unblessed appeared in another form. Like a raging plague all across the land all women gave birth to man. Raped by the wind and forced to bring life to the hundred bastard sons. The unholy ones will give strength for all evil to live and the fires of death burn high. The time has come for the king to die. (Lead Guitar: Mike) A whole world is mourning the loss of their king. In sorrow a new day dawning. Now the princess is their everything. A procession to the chambers where they kiss their fathers ring. Can you hear the angel of sadness sing... with broken wings. (Harmony: Andreas) And with death came disorder, who were they now to obey? No leader, no followers. No trust, no faith. The princess is too young to tame a land, a new king must be chosen. In search for such a man of trust there will be contradicti- ons. Coming forth on desert ground, the incarnation of a king in sleep profound. Another self-proclaimed king, set to rule in the new empire. On a mission to save the forsaken ones and to re-light the dying fire. The crowd was confused and divided in two, a battle was about to begin. Another man with a will as strong declared a war to win. His army of believers was faithful, mighty and brave. Set to capture the liar, to forever enslave. His troops were marching on to the battlefield to set this world on fire. His forces are never giving yield. [War! They fought for what would be a blood-stained crown. Utter chaos supreme. The sand absords the colour of dawn. Nevermore shall they dream, nevermore.] The years went by under a blood-red sky, the king still sup- press the rebellian lie. He is the one, the self-chosen son, master of the throne he rules upon. The sacred child awakened from her crystal sleep. And the earth was shaking, and the people prayed for their souls to keep. The light of day is flowing into her virgin eyes. Oh, the sun is stolen. A dark formation in the skies. Unites the powers in her eyes. Her soul's inhaling all the living light. Bringing on the dark, eternal night. Gathering evil in all its might. Seven years. Purity. Innocence. Dignity. Hail, hail the queen! Ruling supreme. She is queen alone in the human zone, dethroned the king unpure. The masses were assured, she fought without a sword. She regained their hope and faith. Draining the liar in the crimson water. To bring him eternal pain. His soul is slaughtered. Eternalizing bane. Scream in silence, noone shall hear his cries encaged. The unroyal king, surrended to the child of life divine. A hundred fortnights passed but still no signs of aging. Her endless youth... amazed, the world was raging. A shattered race in this broken land this child came to resto- re, like an order from the gods. The queen and all the children gathered around the chambers where the elder ones are joined in sleep profound. In wrath she crush the tanks of crystal glass. The crimson water gushed on to the ground in the unholy mace- cration. Their souls no longer cried. Die! Their gift are denied. [She drinks the life-blood from the feebled man. Empty bodies, soul-drained by the vrigin queen. Finally given the pleasure to die. She aligns the hate inside their hearts. Her chosen knights will make sure all life departs. Soon comes the end of all, she watched a chamber fall. She heard her master call.] Live my words, oh, sacred child. You're soon to leave this world defiled. Then what awaits me my lord? Trust me my child, your wishes shall not be ignored And then he spoke his mind, now his will is hers. The earth shall fall. The eternal curse is cast on the sands they walk. Now you must use your power. Show the human race you are the one. Use their trust forever and then deceive their weakened minds. Fool them to destroy themselves in hopelessness. Belie their seeds, belie their dreams. Hope has ceased to be. The people worshiped their queen. Such beauty before her time was unseen. Their were fooled by her presence and disguise. Faithfully they listened and swallowed all her lies. The times are changing, re-arranging he pattern of our lives. So let your heart stop beating beneath this twisted sky. They were embraced by sadness, but not afraid to die. So pass this sacred dagger and let yourself fly free. So pretend you're dreaming and rise above this world of you and me. [Liar! All those who died with you by their side were denied access to the higer ground. Betrayal. Eternal detest from the ones left unblessed, so possessed. Their last caress was your knife in their hearts. Fed from her deed, watching them bleed. In her own conceit, a world to delete, lies at her feet. Her demon inside do no longer hide. Showing its face of hate and disgrace leaving their saviour unpraised.] The ones who didn't follow. Now sharing this moment of grief. The end of their own existence? In death they had no belief. Despite all the faith in their queen they couldn't believe what they had seen. What was the reason for this sacrifice. Nothing is gained from this great demise. After the ordeal we know she has the powers to decieve us all. But their dream of sons and daughters has made them standing tall. For the king had showed them it could be done when his woman gave birth to the sacred one. But is she of man, made of flesh and blood, or is she the offspring of the unholy [God?] A leader was chosen to unveil the hidden truth. The brave ones were gathered, the strongest were sent to the queen. Her reason to be must be known. After many moons the troopsreach the temple of their majesty. Guarded by a hundred faithful knights. There is no escape, there's no entry to her sacred halls. Is our vision true or false? They rtied to find the answer but they were led astray into a maze of slumper far from the light of day. The riddle remained unanswered. The queen could read ones mind, make sure that noone will find the reason for her mission here. The highness writhe in anger, her trust had been betrayed. The queen was filled with langour, her decision has been made. She would unleash her hate. Destined to devastate. She heard her demons roar, marching into war. The spirit of their beloved king ho spoke unto his men, he came to bring a message of great importance and trust. The gift from the gods has come to cover the world in dust. Her forces are closing in to your sanctuary. So use your imagination to end her reign. Remember these words, and be strong! The chosen few were sacrificed for the others life. They were the bait, they would seal the soldiers fate. A massive grave, to break the soldiers spell. The forces fell into the abyss, never to rise again. Towards the queen the last of the brave ones wandered, to terminate this creature non-divine. The loss of troops forced her powers to release the magic uncontrolled that had wasted a thousand soul. The palace controlled by demons is the heart of all evil pos- sessed by the queen and her unholy servants. If we destroy it, the earth will be ours and it will bring us eternal existance. We'll pray for the gift of breeding. This is a game we can't concede, it is worth all the blood we may bleed. We must close the gate so she can't return. We'll seal her fate, watch her temple burn and we'll capture her soul in the chambers of crimson sleep. And there she will suffer eternally for what she has done to man. We fought our way into her dwelling-place, we searched the corridors of this infernal maze, to seek our enemy the one to slay. We are the ones, we will not obey. A disillusioned servant with great knowledge in her secrets, we found him walking aimlessly trying to find his peace. He said: 'Cover her eyes, they are the root of her inhuman forces. Then she's just the child you thought she, disconnect all her sources.' They found a way to blind her and it could cost some lives. But they must seal the entry from where all evil derives. Two of the brave ones were sent to distract her while the others made their way to behind her throne. She saw her enemies for the last time as their leader covered her eyes. We saw the return of innocence, the symbol of purity we once knew. We carried her to the chambers to forever lock-up her soul. And now the reborn earth, blessed with the gift of birth can see her in this cage that eternally preserves her rage. They captured all her soldiers and forever encaged their cries. They had found a new leader to worship. A king with her clear-blue eyes.

RUSH "Different Stages"
I lie awake, staring out at the bleakness of Megadon. City and sky become one, merging into a single plane, a vast sea of unbroken grey. The Twin Moons, just two pale orbs as they trace their way across the steely sky. I used to think I had a pretty good life here, just plugging into my machine for the day, then watching Templevision or reading a Temple Paper in the evening. My friend Jon always said it was nicer here than under the atmospheric domes of the Outer Planets. We have had peace since 2062, when the surviving planets were banded together under the Red Star of the Solar Federation. The less fortunate gave us a few new moons. I believed what I was told. I thought it was a good life, I thought I was happy. Then I found something that changed it all... I. Overture And the meek shall inherit the earth... II. Temples of Syrinx ... The massive grey walls of the Temples rise from the heart of every Federation city. I have always been awed by them, to think that every single facet of every life is regulated and directed from within! Our books, our music, our work and play are all looked after by the benevolent wisdom of the priests... We've taken care of everything The words you hear, the songs you sing The pictures that give pleasure to your eyes. It's one for all and all for one We work together, common sons Never need to wonder how or why. We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx Our great computers fill the hallowed halls. We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx All the gifts of life are held within our walls. Look around at this world we've made Equality our stock in trade Come and join the Brotherhood of Man Oh, what a nice, contented world Let the banners be unfurled Hold the Red Star proudly high in hand. We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx Our great computers fill the hallowed halls. We are the Priests, of the Temples of Syrinx All the gifts of life are held within our walls. III. Discovery ... Behind my beloved waterfall, in the little room that was hidden beneath the cave, I found it. I brushed away the dust of the years, and picked it up, holding it reverently in my hands. I had no idea what it might be, but it was beautiful ... ... I learned to lay my fingers across the wires, and to turn the keys to make them sound differently. As I struck the wires with my other hand, I produced my first harmonious sounds, and soon my own music! How different it could be from the music of the Temples! I can't wait to tell the priests about it! ... What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it gives forth a sound It's got wires that vibrate and give music What can this thing be that I found? See how it sings like a sad heart And joyously screams out its pain Sounds that build high like a mountain Or notes that fall gently like rain. I can't wait to share this new wonder The people will all see its light Let them all make their own music The Priests praise my name on this night. IV. Presentation ... In the sudden silence as I finished playing, I looked up to a circle of grim, expressionless faces. Father Brown rose to his feet, and his somnolent voice echoed throughout the silent Temple Hall. ... ... Instead of the grateful joy that I expected, they were words of quiet rejection! Instead of praise, sullen dismissal. I watched in shock and horror as Father Brown ground my precious instrument to splinters beneath his feet... I know it's most unusual To come before you so But I've found an ancient miracle I thought that you should know Listen to my music And hear what it can do There's something here as strong as life I know that it will reach you. Yes, we know, it's nothing new It's just a waste of time We have no need for ancient ways The world is doing fine Another toy will help destroy The elder race of man Forget about your silly whim It doesn't fit the plan. I can't believe you're saying These things just can't be true Our world could use this beauty Just think what we might do. Listen to my music And hear what it can do There's something here as strong as life I know that it will reach you. Don't annoy us further! We have our work to do. Just think about the average What use have they for you? Another toy will help destroy The elder race of man Forget about your silly whim It doesn't fit the Plan! V. Oracle: The Dream ... I guess it was a dream, but even now it all seems so vivid to me. Clearly yet I see the beckoning hand of the oracle as he stood at the summit of the staircase ... ... I see still the incredible beauty of the sculptured cities and the pure spirit of man revealed in the lives and works of this world. I was overwhelmed by both wonder and understanding as I saw a completely different way to life, a way that had been crushed by the Federation long ago. I saw now how meaningless life had become with the loss of all these things ... I wandered home though the silent streets And fell into a fitful sleep Escape to realms beyond the night Dream can't you show me the light? I stand atop a spiral stair An oracle confronts me there He leads me on light years away Through astral nights, galactic days I see the works of gifted hands That grace this strange and wondrous land I see the hand of man arise With hungry mind and open eyes They left the planet long ago The elder race still learn and grow Their power grows with purpose strong To claim the home where they belong Home to tear the Temples down... Home to change! VI. Soliloquy ... I have not left this cave for days now, it has become my last refuge in my total despair. I have only the music of the waterfall to comfort me now. I can no longer live under the control of the Federation, but there is no other place to go. My last hope is that with my death I may pass into the world of my dream, and know peace at last. The sleep is still in my eyes The dream is still in my head I heave a sigh and sadly smile And lie a while in bed I wish that it might come to pass Not fade like all my dreams... Just think of what my life might be In a world like I have seen! I don't think I can carry on Carry on this cold and empty life My spirits are low in the depths of despair My lifeblood... ...spills over... VII. The Grand Finale Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation We have assumed control. We have assumed control. We have assumed control.

The Homefront

Billy Bragg "Talking With The Taxman About"
Father mowsthe lawn and Mother peels the potatoes Grandma lays the table alone And adjusts a photograph of the unknown soldier In this Holy of Holies, the Home And from the TV an unwatched voice Suggests the answer is to plant more trees The scrawl on the wall says what about the workers And the voice of the people says more salt please Mother shakesher head and reads aloud from the newspaper As Father puts another lock on the door And reflects upon the violent times that we are living in While chatting with the wife beater next door If paradise to you is cheap beer and overtime Home truths are easily missed Something that every football fan knows It only takes five fingers to form a fist And whenit rains here It rains so hard But never hard enough to wash away the sorrow I'll trade my love today for a greater love tomorrow The lonely child looks out and dreams of independence From this family life sentence Mother seesbut does not read the peeling posters And can't believe that there's a world to be won But in the public schools and in the public houses The Battle of Britain goes on The constantpromise of jam tomorrow Is the New Breed's litany and verse If it takes another war to fill the churches of England Then the world the meek inherit, what will it be worth Mother fightsthe tears and Father, his sense of outrage And attempts to justify the sacrifice To pass their creed down to another generation 'Anything for the quiet life' In the Land of a Thousand Doses Where nostalgia is the opium of the age Our place in History is as clock watchers, old timers, window shoppers.

The Rising

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "The Rising"
Can't see nothin' in front of me Can't see nothin' coming up behind I make my way through this darkness I can't feel nothing but this chain that binds me Lost track of how far I've gone How far I've gone, how high I've climbed On my back's a sixty pound stone On my shoulder a half mile of line Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight Left the house this morning Bells ringing filled the air Wearin' the cross of my calling On wheels of fire I come rollin' down here Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight Li,li, li,li,li,li, li,li,li There's spirits above and behind me Faces gone black, eyes burnin' bright May their precious blood bind me Lord, as I stand before your fiery light Li,li, li,li,li,li, li,li,li I see you Mary in the garden In the garden of a thousand sighs There's holy pictures of our children Dancin' in a sky filled with light May I feel your arms around me May I feel your blood mix with mine A dream of life comes to me Like a catfish dancin' on the end of my line Sky of blackness and sorrow ( a dream of life) Sky of love, sky of tears (a dream of life) Sky of glory and sadness ( a dream of life) Sky of mercy, sky of fear ( a dream of life) Sky of memory and shadow ( a dream of life) Your burnin' wind fills my arms tonight Sky of longing and emptiness (a dream of life) Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight Li,li, li,li,li,li, li,li,li
