Just a thread for lyrics from songs that you like and/or may be on your mind.


Civilization's dying
And no one's realizing
The position of hate stuck inside the gun

Civilization's crying
And I won't try to deny it
We got a problem son
Something's gotta be done

With the Pope
And the president
And the big rockstar who made a lot of money
All got one thing in common
They know it ain't no fun to get shot with a gun!

Victimized, but you're in bed
Stumble out and run dead
If it ever paid to self-start
Environment, make you smart!

Just another victim
Just another victim
Just another victim
Just another victim
Kid!

I heard it once, but not before
Beggin' off and livin' bored
My hands are tied, webbed feet again
Fell in behind and claim us dead!

Just another victim
Just another victim
Just another victim

Cast this, in spite of truth
Give it up, I'll lie to you
Blame and flame this, turned start
Pointed finger, you fall apart!

Just another victim
Just another victim
Just another victim
Just another victim

You played yourself, now you're pointin' fingers
Of how I've robbed and raped ya, bruised and scraped ya
But those are just lies 'cause in your eyes
You've been victimized, that's how you size it up
You disguise it up and try to make it look real
To cover up the low self-esteem you feel
Introspection, an afterthought
Swimmin' in guilt's your favorite sport
But now you're caught up in the undertow
You never knew a man could sink so low
But now you know 'cause you're John Doe
In a black bag, a tag on your toe
I built the house, I felt the pain
You're victimized, but got no one to blame!

Just another victim
You're just another victim, kid
Just another victim
You're just another victim, kid

Holy diver, I'm a survivor
Feeling like DeNiro in 'Taxi Driver'
With Jodi Foster and Harvey Keitel
Looks like I'm walkin' through a livin' hell
So spark that owl and I'll get lifted
Feelin' the effects of what my spliff did
'Cause I'm gifted, I read Sun Tzu
I bought a gun too so you'll never come to
The weight of the world ridin' on my shoulders
'Cause I'm a soldier, I thought I told ya

You're just another victim
You're just another victim, kid
You're just another victim
You're just another victim, kid
You're just another victim
You're just another victim, kid
You're just another victim
You're just another victim, kid

Just another victim
Just another victim
Just another victim
Just another victim, kid

I wish I could fly
And I wish I could die
I wish I was the cross in Othello's eye
I wish I was a stone
In those castle walls
So I could be a thousand years old
And a hundred feet tall

And I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly

I wish I could fly
And I wish I could die
I wish I was the cross in Othello's eye

And I wish I could fly
And I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
And I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly

And I wish I was a flower
Blowin' in the wind
So I could fly away but come back
Again and again
Again and again
Again and again
Again and again

Or will I always be alone standing
Staring at the sky?
Or will I learn to fly?
Or will I learn to fly?
Or will I learn to fly?
Or will I learn to fly?

Dreamed I was an Eskimo
Frozen wind began to blow
Under my boots and around my toes
The frost that bit the ground below
It was a hundred degrees below zero

And my mama cried
And my mama cried
Nanook, a-no-no
Nanook, a-no-no
Don't be a naughty Eskimo
Save your money, don't go to the show

Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh
Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh
Well I turned around and I said ho, ho
And the northern lights commenced to glow
And she said, with a tear in her eye
Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow
Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow

It hurts so much inside
Like a lethal chill down my spine
The destruction of my pride
Strangled this heart of mine

I have to live with this tragedy
Get used to everybody's stare
A wilted flower inside of me
I know you no longer care!

I had a dream of breaking out from all the others
To me there was no other plan
Lost to myself now in a hole of self-destruction
Help me like no one can

But what about me, what about my destiny?
No one else but me could see this tragedy
I'm drowning inside with apathy

My fires have disappeared
Like the hope of a better day
My future is sadly weird
The insanity has come to stay

I see you in the darkest night
Talking through my maze of depression
I almost feel your light
And I turn my back on you with no hesitation

I had a dream of breaking out from all the others
To me there was no other plan
Lost to myself now in a hole of self-destruction
Help me like no one can

But what about me, what about my destiny?
No one else but me could see this tragedy
I'm drowning inside with apathy

But what about me, what about my destiny?
No one else but me could see this tragedy
I'm drowning inside with apathy!!!

Scorching through your tortured mind, burning in your eyes
Hideous infection, painful death, slowly you demise
Now you see your friends all die, you're trying to withstand
But you can't fight this evil foe, you can't see or understand

Inner organs start to rot, smell the curdling skin
When it eats into your brain is when the pain begins
Lonesome death by festering boils, you're dying all alone
But as you see from beyond the grave, they feed upon your bones

Agony, torture, eternal pain
Festering boils drive you insane
Rabid disease destroys mankind
Festering boils eat your mind!

When I was a young man
A rich man said to me
A pocket full of money
Is nothing if you're not free.

Quit my job, told my boss to stand aside
Grabbed a gun, a fifth of booze, jumped in my ride
Got my girl, she's sixteen and she's really special
I can't slow down, I've got a date with the devil
Two tons of steel, a hundred miles an hour
No looking back, grooving on the power

Responsibility made me quit
I'm sick of this motherfucking gawddamn shit!
There's a road, beyond it lies, I don't know
I just gotta run, just gotta go!
No looking back, grooving on the power

I never sang a love song
I've never owned a car
I've never met a machine that'd drive me this far

Not gonna listen to a word you say!
Leaving in the morning just to get away!
Can't stand myself for another day!
Leaving in the morning just to get away!
