    i like this one, it is not my favorite, but it is alright!

    Manowar - Courage

    Some want to think hope is lost see me stand alone
    I can't do what others may want then I'll have no home

    So for now wave good-bye and leave your hands held high
    Hear this song of courage long into the night
    So for now wave good-bye and leave your hands held high
    Hear this song of courage long into the night

    And the wind will bear my cry to all who hope to fly
    Hear this song of courage ride into the night

    Battles are fought by those with the courage to believe
    They are won by those who find the heart
    Find a heart to share
    This heart that fills the soul will point the way to victory
    If there's a fight then I'll be there, I'll be there

    So for now wave good-bye, leave your hands held high
    Hear this song of courage long into the night
    And the wind will bear my cry to all who hope to fly
    Lift your wings up high my friend fearless to the end
    So for now wave good-bye, leave your hands held high
    Hear this song of courage ride into the night

    Motörhead - Death Or Glory

    I saw the millions, the naked and the dead
    I saw the city streets running bloody red
    I saw a thousand bombers circle in the sky
    I saw the firestorm fifty stories high

    I saw a hundred thousand scream and burn
    I saw the armored wheels grind and turn
    Universal soldier, doomed to live to tell
    Fight and die forever, burn in bloody hell

    Death or Glory, Death or Glory
    March forever in the sound and fury
    Death or Glory, Death or Glory
    Blood and iron it's the same old story

    I held the Iron Cross, first class with the swords
    I marched with Hitler down the bloody road to war
    I was at Jutland loading 'till the gun was hot,
    Killed at Trafalgar without firing a shot

    I was at Moscow, burning in my tank
    I was at Shiloh, marching in the ranks
    I was a Sturmbannfuhrer fighting in Berlin
    I was a Russian Hero dying for Stalin

    Death or glory, Death or glory
    March forever in the sound and fury
    Death or glory, Death or glory
    Blood and iron it's the same old story

    I swung a saber and I was a young Hussar
    I was a Cossack, fighting for the Czar
    I was a Viking, Berserker from the North
    A Roman Gladiator murdered just for sport

    I was with Bonaparte I died at Waterloo
    I was a Frankish Knight, a Polish Jew
    I was a Spartan in the Trojan Wars
    I was a warrior for Crazy Horse

    Death or Glory, Death or Glory
    March forever in the sound and fury
    Death or Glory, Death or Glory
    The Lone Survivor but no comfort for me
    Death or Glory, Death or Glory
    Executioner, Judge and Jury
    Death or Glory, Death or Glory
    Blood and iron it's the same old story
    Tolerance is a proof of distrust in one's own ideals. Friedrich Nietzsche

    Post Re: Favourite song lyrics

    Here's one of my favorites - sort of an postmodern apocalyptic blues song.

    Leonard Cohen
    The Future (1992)
    The Future

    Give me back my broken night
    My secret room, my secret life
    It's lonely here
    There's no one left to torture
    Give me absolute control
    Over every living soul
    And lie beside me, baby
    That's an order!

    Give me crack and anal sex
    Take the only tree that's left
    And stuff it up the hole
    In your culture
    Give back the Berlin Wall
    Give me Stalin and St. Paul
    I've seen the future, brother
    It is murder

    CHORUS
    Things are going to slide in all directions
    Won't be nothing
    Nothing you can measure anymore
    The blizzard of the world
    Has crossed the threshold
    And it has overturned
    The order of the soul
    When they said repent
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said repent
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said repent
    I wonder what they meant

    You don't know me from the wind
    You never will, you never did
    I'm the little Jew
    Who wrote the Bible
    I've seen nations rise and fall
    I've heard their stories, heard them all
    But love's the only engine of survival
    Your servant here, he has been told
    To say it clear, to say it cold
    It's over, it ain't going
    Any further
    And now the wheels of heaven stop
    You feel the devil's riding crop
    Get ready for the future
    It is murder

    CHORUS

    There'll be the breaking of the ancient
    Western code
    Your private life will suddenly explode
    There'll be phantoms
    There'll be fires in the road
    And the white man dancing
    You'll see the woman
    Hanging upside down
    Her features covered by her fallen gown
    And all the lousy little poets
    Coming round
    Trying to sound like Charlie Manson

    Give me back the Berlin Wall
    Give me Stalin and St. Paul
    Give me Christ
    Or give me Hiroshima
    Destroy another fetus now
    We don't like children anyhow
    I've seen the future, baby
    It is murder

    CHORUS
    "Whatever is done from love always occurs beyond good and evil." - F. Nietzsche

    The texts from THE DOORS are really great, especially of "the end" and "stranger".

    This text from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers is good as well:

    Californication Lyrics



    Psychic spies from China
    Try to steal your mind’s elation
    Little girls from Sweden
    Dream of silver screen quotations
    And if you want these kind of dreams
    It’s Californication

    It’s the edge of the world
    And all of western civilization
    The sun may rise in the East
    At least it settles in the final location
    It’s understood that Hollywood
    sells Californication

    Pay your surgeon very well
    To break the spell of aging
    Celebrity skin is this your chin
    Or is that war your waging

    Chorus:
    First born unicorn
    Hard core soft porn
    Dream of Californication
    Dream of Californication

    Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
    Be my very own constellation
    A teenage bride with a baby inside
    Getting high on information
    And buy me a star on the boulevard
    It’s Californication

    Space may be the final frontier
    But it’s made in a Hollywood basement
    Cobain can you hear the spheres
    Singing songs off station to station
    And Alderon’s not far away
    It’s Californication

    Born and raised by those who praise
    Control of population everybody’s been there
    and
    I don’t mean on vacation

    Chorus

    Destruction leads to a very rough road
    But it also breeds creation
    And earthquakes are to a girl’s guitar
    They’re just another good vibration
    And tidal waves couldn’t save the world
    From Californication

    Pay your surgeon very well
    To break the spell of aging
    Sicker than the rest
    There is no test
    But this is what you’re craving

    Chorus
    From DJ Shadow "Six Days":

    At the starting of the week
    At summit talks you'll hear them speak
    It's only Monday
    Negotiations breaking down
    See those leaders start to frown
    It's sword and gun day

    Tomorrow never comes until it's too late

    You could be sitting taking lunch
    The news will hit you like a punch
    It's only Tuesday
    You never thought we'd go to war
    After all the things we saw
    It's April Fools' day

    Tomorrow never comes until it's too late
    Tomorrow never comes until it's too late

    You hear a whistling overhead
    Are you alive or are you dead?
    It's only Thursday
    You feel a shaking on the ground
    A billion candles burn around
    Is it your birthday?

    Tomorrow never comes until it's too late
    Tomorrow never comes until it's too late
    Make tomorrow come I think it's too late
    Richard Wagner - Tristan und Isolde, Liebestod:

    Mild und leise
    wie er lächelt,
    wie das Auge
    hold er öffnet
    Seht ihr's, Freunde?
    Seht ihr's nicht?
    Immer lichter
    wie er leuchtet,
    stern-umstrahlet
    hoch sich hebt?
    Seht ihr's nicht?
    Wie das Herz ihm
    mutig schwillt,
    voll und hehr
    im Busen ihm quillt?
    Wie den Lippen,
    wonnig mild,
    süßer Atem
    sanft entweht
    Freunde! Seht!
    Fühlt und seht ihr's nicht?
    Hör ich nur diese Weise,
    die so wundervoll und leise,
    Wonne klagend,
    alles sagend,
    mild versöhnend
    aus ihm tönend,
    in mich dringet,
    auf sich schwinget,
    hold erhallend
    um mich klinget?
    Heller schallend,
    mich umwallend
    Sind es Wellen
    sanfter Lüfte?
    Sind es Wogen
    wonniger Düfte?
    Wie sie schwellen,
    mich umrauschen,
    soll ich atmen,
    soll ich lauschen?
    Soll ich schlürfen,
    untertauchen?
    Süß in Düften
    mich verhauchen?
    In dem wogenden Schwall
    in dem tönenden Schall
    in des Welt-Atems wehendem All
    ertrinken,
    versinken
    unbewußt
    höchste Lust!
    Richard Wagner - Rienzi, Allmaechtger Vater:

    Allmächt'ger Vater, blick herab! Almighty Father, look down!
    Hör mich im Staube zu dir flehn! Hear me, in the dust, pray to you!
    Die Macht, die mir dein Wunder gab, The strength that your authority gave to me,
    laß jetzt noch nicht zugrunde gehn! let it not yet perish!
    Du stärktest mich, du gabst mir hohe Kraft, You strengthened me, You gave me great power
    du liehest mir erhabne Eigenschaft: You lent me noble character:
    zu hellen den, der niedrig denkt, to make bright that which was thought inferior,
    zu heben, was im Staub versenkt. to elevate what sank into the dust.
    Du wandeltest des Volkes Schmach You changed the humiliation of the people
    zu Hoheit, Glanz und Majestät! into nobility, splendor, and majesty!
    O Gott, vernichte nicht das Werk, O God, do not destroy the work
    das dir zum Preis errichtet steht! that stands to you at the price established!
    Ach, löse, Herr, die tiefe Nacht, Ah, dissolve, Lord, the dark night,
    die noch der Menschen Seelen deckt! that still covers the souls of men!
    Schenk uns den Abglanz deiner Macht, Grant us the reflection of your authority,
    die sich in Ewigkeit erstreckt! that extends itself into eternity!
    Mein Herr und Vater, o blicke herab! My Lord and Father, look down!
    Senke dein Auge aus deinen Höhn! Lower your eyes from your height!
    Die Kraft, die mir dein Wunder gab, The power that your authority gave to me,
    laß jetzt noch nicht zugrunde gehn! let it not yet perish!
    Allmächt'ger Vater, blick herab! Almighty Father, look down!
    Hör mich im Staube zu dir flehn! Hear me, in the dust, pray to you!
    Mein Gott, der hohe Kraft mir gab, My God, who gave to me great power,
    erhöre mein tiefinbrünstig Flehn! grant my profoundly ardent prayer!

    Hey Jupiter - Tori Amos

    No one's picking up the phone.
    Guess it's me and me
    And this little masochist.
    She's ready to confess.
    All the things
    That I never thought
    That she could feel and

    Hey jupiter,
    Nothing's been the same.
    So are you gay?
    Are you blue?
    Thought we both could use a friend to run to.

    And I thought,
    I wouldn't have to be with you,
    Something new.

    Sometimes, I breathe you in
    And i know, you know,
    And sometimes you take a swim.
    Found your writing on my wall.
    If my heart's soaking wet.
    Boy, your boots can leave a mess.

    Hey jupiter,
    Nothing's been the same.
    So are you gay?
    Are you blue?
    Thought we both could use a friend to run to.

    And I thought I wouldn't have to keep
    With you.
    Hiding.

    Thought I knew myself so well.
    All the dolls I had.
    Took my leather off the shelf
    Your apocalypse was fab.
    For a girl
    Who couldn't choose between
    the shower or the bath.

    And I thought I wouldn't have to be
    with you.
    A magazine.

    No on's picking up the phone.
    Guess it's clear he's gone.
    And this little masochist
    is lifting up her dress.
    Guess I thought I could never feel
    the things I feel

    Hey jupiter,
    Nothing's been the same.
    So are you gay?
    Are you blue?
    Thought we both could use a friend to run to.

    Hey jupiter,
    Nothing been the same.
    So, what do you say?
    Now we're through.
    Thought we both could use a friend to run to.
    Hey jupiter....

    Tori Amos - Cloud on my Tongue


    Someone's knockin on my kitchen door
    Leave the wood outside, well
    All the girls here are freezing cold
    Leave me with your Borneo
    I don't need much to keep me warm

    Don't stop now what you're doing
    What you're doing
    My ugly one
    Bring them all here hard to hide a
    A hundred girls in your hair
    It won't be fair if I hate her
    If I ate her

    You can go now
    You can go now
    You can go now

    You're already in there
    I'll be wearing your tattoo
    You're already in there

    Got a cloud sleeping on my tongue
    He goes then it goes and
    Kiss the violets as they're waking up
    Leave me with your Borneo
    Leave me the way I was before

    You're already in there
    I'll be wearing your tattoo
    I'm already in
    Circles and circles and circles again
    The girl's in circles and circles and
    Got to stop spinning
    Circles and circles and circles again

    Thought I was over the bridge now
    Over the bridge now

    Post Re: Favourite song lyrics

    This is one of the saddest songs I know, and the lyrics have that wonderful dreamy quality not to mention how intelligent and subtle they are. Try to read it all if you're not bored, you would not regret it.


    The Queen and the Soldier - Suzanne Vega

    The soldier came knocking upon the queen's door
    He said, "I am not fighting for you any more"
    The queen knew she'd seen his face someplace before
    And slowly she let him inside.

    He said, "I've watched your palace up here on the hill
    And I've wondered who's the woman for whom we all kill
    But I am leaving tomorrow and you can do what you will
    Only first I am asking you why."

    Down in the long narrow hall he was led
    Into her rooms with her tapestries red
    And she never once took the crown from her head
    She asked him there to sit down.

    He said, "I see you now, and you are so very young
    But I've seen more battles lost than I have battles won
    And I've got this intuition, says it's all for your fun
    And now will you tell me why?"

    The young queen, she fixed him with an arrogant eye
    She said, "You won't understand, and you may as well not try"
    But her face was a child's, and he thought she would cry
    But she closed herself up like a fan.

    And she said, "I've swallowed a secret burning thread
    It cuts me inside, and often I've bled"
    He laid his hand then on top of her head
    And he bowed her down to the ground.

    "Tell me how hungry are you? How weak you must feel
    As you are living here alone, and you are never revealed
    But I won't march again on your battlefield"
    And he took her to the window to see.

    And the sun, it was gold, though the sky, it was gray
    And she wanted more than she ever could say
    But she knew how it frightened her, and she turned away
    And would not look at his face again.

    And he said, "I want to live as an honest man
    To get all I deserve and to give all I can
    And to love a young woman who I don't understand
    Your highness, your ways are very strange."

    But the crown, it had fallen, and she thought she would break
    And she stood there, ashamed of the way her heart ached
    She took him to the doorstep and she asked him to wait
    She would only be a moment inside.

    Out in the distance her order was heard
    And the soldier was killed, still waiting for her word
    And while the queen went on strangeling in the solitude she preferred
    The battle continued on

    "Lay Lady Lay" by Ministry. (Gotta hear this one to appreciate it)

    Für meine Liebe~Ministry


    Lay lady lay
    Lay across my big brass bed
    Lay lady lay
    Lay across my big brass bed
    Stay lady stay
    Stay while the night is still ahead
    Stay lady stay
    Heaven's ? fills our head
    Whatever colors you have in your mind
    I show them to you and you see them shine
    Stay lady stay
    Stay with your man a while
    Till the break of day
    Then you're gonna see him smile
    His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
    And you're the best thing he's ever seen
    Why wait any longer for the world to begin
    You can have your cake and eat it too
    Why wait any longer for the one you love
    When he's standing over you
    Lay lady lay
    Lay across my big brass bed
    Stay lady stay
    We're gonna build the whole night ahead
    I long to see you in the morning light
    I long to reach for you all night



    Lay lady lay

    Wenn ich funky fühle!!


    Soon I discovered that this rock thing was true
    Jerry lee lewis was the devil
    Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet
    All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world
    So there was only one thing that I could do
    Was ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long

    ~Ich vermisse Sie~

    You are a rock

    Upon which I stand
    And I come here to talk
    I hope you understand

    The green eyes
    Yeah the spotlight
    Shines upon you
    And how could

    Anybody
    Deny you

    I came here with a load

    And it feels so much lighter
    Now I met you

    Honey you should know

    That I could never go on
    Without you

    Green eyes

    You are the sea
    Upon which I float
    And I came here to talk
    I think you should know

    That green eyes
    You're the one that I wanted to find
    And anyone who tried to deny you,
    Must be out of their mind

    Because I came here with a load
    And it feels so much lighter since I met you

    And you should know,

    That I could never go on
    Without you

    Green eyes, green eyes, ohohoh...

    You are a rock
    Upon which I stand.
