    Tiny Ugly World by Alice Donut

    Spotlights gleam across a Star Search nation.
    A million cries of "me" drown out the cruel frustrations of a normal life.
    It's a different kind of thinking.
    A whole new way of telling lies 'til they're true.
    When you're waiting for the light.

    And we're all waiting for the same light these days.
    A job well done is not enough without a front page photograph.
    Death comes quickly to the poor and obscure.
    Booby prizes for the kind and unsure.
    When they're standing in the light.

    40 channels of a daydream stimulation.
    Help me to forget myself and raise my expectations of a better life.
    I'm ready to be special now.
    Get what I deserve and shine for an hour.
    Standing in the light.


    And it would help if you could die.
    (It's a tiny little world)
    Something fast and tragic at an early age.
    Guilty soon as you try.
    (Teeny tiny little heroes)
    Get a sense of history put yourself on the page.
    It's an ugly sight.
    (In a tiny ugly world)
    When everybody's on the stage.


    She's got a face to launch a thousand supersonic jets.
    A waitress in another life, how easily she forgets.
    Looks back with a sigh to simpler days.
    She's not ungrateful, just caught up in the chase.
    Still waiting for the light.


    And it would help if you could die.
    (It's a tiny little world)
    Something fast and tragic at an early age.
    Guilty soon as you try.
    (Teeny tiny little heroes)
    Get a sense of history put yourself on the page.
    It's an ugly sight.
    (In a tiny ugly world)
    When everybody's on the stage.

    Think of me.
    (It's a tiny little world)
    Watch what you do. Watch what you say.
    Drink with me.
    (Teeny tiny little heroes)
    I'd be so grateful, if you could think of a way to pay.
    Don't dream of me.
    (In a tiny ugly world)
    Have it any other way.

    City of tiny lites
    Don't you wanna go
    Hear the tiny auto horns
    When they tiny blow
    Tiny lightnin'
    In the storm
    Tiny blankets
    Gonna keep you warm
    Tiny pillows
    Tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny sheets
    Talkin' bout the tiny cookies
    That the peoples eats
    Well city of tiny lites
    Maybe you should know
    That it's over there
    In the tiny dirt somewhere

    You can see it any time
    When you get the squints
    From your downers and your wine
    You're so big
    It's so tiny
    Every cloud is silver liney
    The great escape for all of you
    Tiny is as tiny do
    Tiny is as tiny do
    Tiny is as tiny do
    Tiny is as tiny do

    City of tiny lites
    Dont you wanna go
    Hear the tiny auto horns
    When they tiny blow
    Tiny, lightnin
    In the storm
    Tiny blankets
    Tiny blankets
    Are bound to keep you warm
    Tiny pillows
    Talkin' bout those tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny sheets
    Talkin' bout them tiny cookies
    That the peoples eats
    City of tiny lights
    May be you should know
    Thats it's over there
    Well that is over there
    Say that it's over there
    Well it is over there

    Wish I was ocean size
    They cannot move you
    And no one tries
    No one pulls you
    Out from your hole
    Like a tooth aching a jawbone

    I was made with a heart of stone
    To be broken
    With one hard blow
    I've seen the ocean
    Break on the shore
    Come together with no harm done

    It ain't easy living
    I want to be
    As deep
    As the ocean
    Mother ocean, yeah

    I want to be
    As deep
    As the ocean
    Mother ocean, yeah

    Some people tell me
    Home is in the sky
    In the sky lives a spy
    I want to be more like the ocean
    No talking and all action
    No talking and all action

    We are intent only on our own gain.

    Tune in and avert your eyes to the blank telescreen.
    They're watching you sleep, telling you to eat
    What could be soylent green.
    Now, now, now look away and go back to bed.
    They will get what they need
    When we sleep, work, and play,
    When we consume and obey.

    'Cause we are all born in to a controlled mindset.
    Godmoney makes a death threat on ethics.
    Governed by greed and a stale routine.
    Can we just justify the means if we're...

    Plugged in, tuned out?
    We all need to wake up 'cause we've been
    Detached for too long.
    We need to deprogram from
    Shifting with the public eye.
    We have a right to question why.
    See through the lies,
    Re-sensitize, and look closer.

    Get schooled, get married, get it on.
    Start a family. Hurry, move along.
    You might start to think, make a different move.
    Lose your only mind that you've never used anyway.
    Walk on the white line. Brainwashed.
    Walk on the same side. Brain dead.
    It's secure and safe like you need it all to be.

    Plugged in, tuned out
    We all need to wake up 'cause we've been
    Detached for too long.
    We need to deprogram from
    Shifting with the public eye.
    We have a right to question why.
    See through the lies,
    Re-sensitize, and look closer.

    And look closer in.
    (They live) wide awake, fully aware,
    (We sleep) on a quest to find out where
    (They live) the dream turned into a scare,
    (We sleep) a fascinating new nightmare.
    (They live) wide awake, fully aware,
    (We sleep) on a quest to find out where
    (They live) the dream turned into a scare,
    (We sleep) a fascinating new nightmare.

    Walk on the white line. Brainwashed.
    Walk on the same side. Brain dead.
    It's secure and safe like you need it all...

    They want benign complacency.
    This is where we start to look closer.

    Plugged in, tuned out, wake up.
    Plugged in, tuned out, wake up.
    Plugged in, tuned out
    We all need to wake up 'cause we've been
    Detached for too long.
    We need to deprogram from
    Shifting with the public eye.
    We have a right to question why.
    See through the lies,
    Re-sensitize, and look closer.

    Now, now look closer.

    Eclipse
    (Waters) 2:04

    All that you touch
    All that you see
    All that you taste
    All you feel.
    All that you love
    All that you hate
    All you distrust
    All you save.
    All that you give
    All that you deal
    All that you buy,
    beg, borrow or steal.
    All you create
    All you destroy
    All that you do
    All that you say.
    All that you eat
    And everyone you meet
    All that you slight
    And everyone you fight.
    All that is now
    All that is gone
    All that's to come
    and everything under the sun is in tune
    but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

    Just one more....

    Frank Zappa - Pojama People
    Some people`s hot
    Some people`s cold
    Some people`s not very
    Swift to behold
    Some people do it
    Some see right through it
    Some wear pojamas
    If only they knew it

    The pojamas people are boring me to pieces
    They make me feel like I am wasting my time
    They all got flannel up `n down `em
    A little trap-door back aroun` `em
    An` some cozy little *footies* on their mind

    Po-jama people!
    Po-jama people, people!
    Lawd, they make you sleepy
    With the things they might say
    Po-jama people!
    Po-jama people, people!
    *Mother, Mary `n Jozuf*, wish they`d all go away!

    Po-jama people!
    It`s a po-jama people special...
    Take one home with you & save a dollar today
    Po-jama people!
    Po-jama people, people!
    Wrap `em up
    Roll `em out
    Get `em out of my way

    This wont be long before this thread is real fun to scroll through...:p

    Few of my favs...



    Charlotte sometimes - The Cure

    all the faces
    all the voices blur
    change to one face
    change to one voice
    prepare yourself for bed
    the light is bright and glares on white walls
    all the sounds of charlotte sometimes
    into the night with charlotte sometimes
    night after night she lay alone in bed
    her eyes so open to the dark
    the streets all looked so strange
    they seem so far away
    but charlotte did not cry

    the people seem so close
    playing expressionless games
    the people seem so close
    so many different names

    sometimes i'm dreaming
    where all the other people dance
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    charlotte sometimes
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    expressionless in trance
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    so many different names
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    the sounds all stay the same
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    she hopes to open her shadowed eyes
    on a different world
    come to me scared princess
    charlotte sometimes

    on that bleak track
    see the sun is gone again
    tears were pouring down her face
    and she was crying and crying for a girl
    who died so many years before...

    sometimes i dream
    where all the other people dance
    sometimes i dream
    charlotte sometimes
    sometimes i dream
    the sounds all stay the same
    sometimes i'm dreaming
    so many different names
    sometimes i dream
    sometimes i...

    charlotte sometimes crying for herself
    charlotte sometimes dreams a wall around herself
    but it's always with love
    with so much love it looks like everything else
    charlotte sometimes
    so far away
    glass sealed and pretty
    charlotte sometimes



    Antichrist Television Blues - Arcade Fire

    I don't wanna work in a building downtown
    No I don't wanna work in a building downtown
    I don't know what I'm gonna do
    Cause the planes keep crashing always two by two
    I don't wanna work in a building downtown
    No I don't wanna see when the planes hit the ground

    I don't wanna work in a building downtown
    I don't wanna work in a building downtown
    Parking their cars in the underground
    Their voices when they scream, well they make no sound
    I wanna see the cities rust
    And the troublemakers riding on the back of the bus

    Dear God, I'm a good Christian man
    In your glory, I know you understand
    That you gotta work hard and you gotta get paid
    My girl's 13 but she don't act her age
    She can sing like a bird in a cage
    O Lord, if you could see her when she's up on that stage!

    You know that I'm a God-fearing man
    You know that I'm a God-fearing man
    But I just gotta know if it's part of your plan
    To seat my daughters there by your right hand
    I know that you'll do what's right, Lord
    For they are the lanterns and you are the light

    Now I'm overcome
    By the light of day
    My lips are near but my heart is far away
    Tell me what to say
    I'll be your mouthpiece!

    Into the light of a bridge that burns
    As I drive from the city with the money that I earned
    Into the black of a starless sky
    I'm staring into nothing
    and I'm asking you why
    Lord, will you make her a star
    So the world can see who you really are?

    Little girl, you're old enough to understand
    That you'll always be a stranger in a strange, strange land
    The men are gonna come when you're fast asleep
    So you better just stay close and hold onto me
    If my little mocking bird don't sing
    Then daddy won't buy her no diamond ring

    Dear God, would you send me a child?
    Oh! God, would you send me a child
    Cause I wanna put it up on the TV screen
    So the world can see what your true word means
    Lord, would you send me a sign
    Cause I just gotta know if I'm wasting my time!

    Now I'm overcome
    By the light of day
    My lips are near but my heart is far away
    Now the war is won
    How come nothing tastes good?

    You're such a sensitive child!
    Oh! You're such a sensitive child!
    I know you're tired but it's alright
    I just need you to sing for me tonight
    You're gonna have your day in the sun
    You know God loves the sensitive ones

    Oh! My little bird in a cage!
    Oh! My little bird in a cage!
    I need you to get up for me, up on that stage
    And show the men that you're old for your age
    Now ain't the time for fear
    But if you don't take it, it'll disappear!

    Oh! My little mocking bird sing!
    Oh! My little mocking bird sing!
    I need you to get up on that stage for me, honey
    And show the men it's not about the money
    Wanna hold a mirror up to the world
    So that they can see themselves inside my little girl!

    Do you know where I was at your age!?
    Any idea where I was at your age!?
    I was working downtown for the minimum wage
    And I'm not gonna let you just throw it all away!
    I'm through being cute, I'm through being nice
    O tell me, Lord, am I the Antichrist?!



    Bruce Springsteen - Stolen Car

    I met a little girl and I settled down
    In a little house out on the edge of town
    We got married, and swore we'd never part
    Then little by little we drifted from each other's heart
    At first I thought it was just restlessness
    That would fade as time went by and our love grew deep
    In the end it was something more I guess
    That tore us apart and made us weep

    And I'm driving a stolen car
    Down on Eldridge Avenue
    Each night I wait to get caught
    But I never do

    She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote
    When our love was young and bold
    She said last night she read those letters
    And they made her feel one hundred years old

    And I'm driving a stolen car
    On a pitch black night
    And I'm telling myself I'm gonna be alright
    But I ride by night and I travel in fear
    That in this darkness I will disappear



    Let Down - Radiohead

    Transport, motorways and tramlines
    Starting and then stopping
    Taking off and landing
    The emptiest of feelings
    Disappointed people clinging on to bottles
    And when it comes it's so so disappointing

    Let down and hanging around
    Crushed like a bug in the ground
    Let down and hanging around

    Shell smashed, juices flowing
    Wings twitch, legs are going
    Don't get sentimental
    It always ends up drivel
    One day I'm going to grow wings
    A chemical reaction
    Hysterical and useless
    Hysterical and ...

    Let down and hanging around
    Crushed like a bug in the ground
    Let down and hanging around

    Let down again
    Let down again
    Let down again

    You know, you know where you are with
    You know where you are with
    Floor collapsing
    Floating, bouncing back
    And one day....
    I am going to grow wings
    A chemical reaction
    Hysterical and useless
    Hysterical and...

    Let down and hanging around
    Crushed like a bug in the ground
    Let down and hanging around



    Up the Down Escalator - The Chameleons

    I'm gazing at faces staring blankly at me
    I suppose it's just a sign of the times
    They tell me tomorrow will never arrive
    But I've seen it end a million times

    I lost my direction while dodging the flak
    Oh give me a hint or something
    Now they can erase us at the flick of a switch
    How long will they wait?
    No!
    There must be something wrong boys
    There must be something wrong boys

    Obnoxious actions, obnoxious results
    From teachers who refuse to be taught
    Distorted pictures and dizzy, dizzy people
    Rush by me at the speed of thought

    They sit at tables and throw out the scraps
    For christ's' sake leave us something
    Now they can erase us at the flick of a switch
    Will they hesitate?
    No!
    There must be something wrong boys
    There must be something wrong boys
    They're dragging me down

    Eden
    There's no Eden, anyway.

    They sit at tables and throw out the scraps
    For christ's' sake leave me something
    Now they can erase us at the flick of a switch
    Will they hesitate?
    No!
    There must be something wrong boys
    There must be something wrong boys
    They're dragging me down
    Oh, they're dragging me down
    You either swim or you drown...



    Strong hand - Chvrches

    Why don't you tell me what do you need
    There is a blank page for you
    Give me the bones of what you believe
    Maybe they'll save you from me

    Will I be the strong hand keeping you safe
    or will I break you in half
    and you will never be under my thumb
    but you were not your own land

    See the way we all run
    When we know it off by heart
    Played down, waiting all out
    Will we win or lose it this time

    When the pressure's building for a great white hope
    do you give up the things that you love?
    and the pressure's building till it takes you whole
    can you go back on your own word?

    All of your brothers, they never died
    For what you kill for slowly
    How it will grind you into the ground
    If you should try to hold me

    See the way we all run
    When we know it off by heart
    Played down, waiting all out
    Will we win or lose it this time

    When the pressure's building for a great white hope
    do you give up the things that you love?
    and the pressure's building till it takes you whole
    can you go back on your own word?

    When the pressure's building for a great white hope
    do you give up the things that you love?
    and the pressure's building till it takes you whole
    can you go back on your own word?

    Cool, people are playing! :hyper: Some cool stuff here that I haven't heard before that I'm gonna check out! :) A couple more favorites:

    Biological Speculation - Funkadelic

    We're just a biological speculation
    Sittin' here, vibratin'
    And we don't know what we're vibratin' about

    And the animal instinct in me
    Makes me wanna defend me
    It makes me want to live when it's time to die

    Y'all, see my point
    I don't mean to come on strong but I am concerned

    I believe in God
    Though I know that law and order must prevail
    Oh, if and when the laws of man
    Is not just equal and fair
    Then the laws of nature will come and do her thing

    Oh, she does not think
    She just rectifies
    She comes and balances the book
    Y'all see my point?
    Y'all see my point?

    We're just a biological speculation
    Sittin' here, vibratin'
    And we don't know what we're vibratin' about

    And the animal instinct in me
    It makes me wanna defend me
    It makes me want to live when it's time to die

    Y'all see my point?
    (Y'all see my point?)
    Some of you, you might not be aware
    That some of us don't eat
    Some of you don't, you don't even care

    Oh, if and when the system
    Creates hunger and hate
    Then the laws of nature will come and do her thing
    Oh, yes, oh

    She does not think
    She works by instinct
    Survival is her thing
    Do y'all see my point?
    (Ohh)
    Y'all see my point?

    Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
    Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
    Followed by fault lines that cannot sit still.
    Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip *****.

    Some say the end is near.
    Some say we'll see Armageddon soon.
    I certainly hope we will cause
    I sure could use a vacation from this

    Stupid ****, silly ****, stupid ****...

    One great big festering neon distraction,
    I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

    Learn to swim.

    Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
    Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be.

    Learn to swim.

    **** L Ron Hubbard and
    **** all his clones.
    **** all these gun-toting
    Hip gangster wannabes.

    Learn to swim.

    **** retro anything.
    **** your tattoos.
    **** all you junkies and
    **** your short memory.

    Learn to swim.

    **** smiley glad-hands
    With hidden agendas.
    **** these dysfunctional,
    Insecure actresses.

    Learn to swim.

    Cause I'm praying for rain
    And I'm praying for tidal waves
    I wanna see the ground give way.
    I wanna watch it all go down.
    Mom, please flush it all away.
    I wanna see it go right in and down.
    I wanna watch it go right in.
    Watch you flush it all away.

    Time to bring it down again.
    Don't just call me pessimist.
    Try and read between the lines.

    I can't imagine why you wouldn't
    Welcome any change, my friend.

    I wanna see it all come down.
    Bring it down
    Suck it down.
    Flush it down.

    Things are not always what they appear to be
    Beneath the calm exterior
    There can be a soul on fire

    Truth is not always what the eyes can see
    The smile upon our faces
    Can disguise our pain and hide the traces

    Sometimes the rock that we depend on
    Melts into the ground and disappears
    The one thing you thought was forever
    Slowly washed away by all the tears

    If I gotta be true to no other
    I gotta be true to myself

    Raise up your head now so the world can see
    You have the inner vision
    Though the fight is far from over

    You’ve got to battle with it endlessly
    Before life becomes a rumour
    A sudden risin' tide that pulls you under

    (True to myself)...
    (True to myself)...

    If I’m gonna make it come tomorrow
    (True to myself)
    I cannot be the voice of constant sorrow
    (True to myself)
    Gotta climb the ladder if I’m able
    (True to myself)
    I can’t keep this shining light under the table,
    (True to myself) my love
    I wanna be, I gotta be true to myself, hey, hey…
    (True to myself)

    Waaaaayyyy to many to count .. but here are a few..

    Under the Hammer by Gil Scott Heron
    Good advice is sure enough hard to come by
    Bad advice surrounds you constantly
    Good advice you just can’t put no price on
    Bad advice is easy cuz it’s free

    But through it all somehow we’re different
    We think there's nothing to it so we plunge faithfully through it
    No matter how hard it rains if we don’t profit from the change
    We’re under the hammer totally

    (talkin’ bout) Under the hammer from the day you was born
    Under the hammer and out there on your own
    Good advice don’t make it if there's no one there to take it
    You’re just under the hammer totally

    Now I meant to tell you something about the drinkin’
    Yeah But you don’t want to hear a word I say
    Naw and You don’t care what I’ve been thinking
    Because you control things your own way

    And since you’ve got things under control
    There ain’t nothing to it ain’t no reason you should do it
    No matter how hard it rains if you don’t profit from the change
    You’re back under the hammer totally

    Under the hammer from the day you was born
    Under the hammer and out there on your own
    Good advice don’t make it if there's no one there to take it
    You’re just under the hammer totally

    Good advice is sure enough hard to come by
    When bad advice surrounds you constantly
    Good advice you just can’t put no price on
    And bad advice is easy cuz its free

    And through it all somehow we’re different
    We think there's nothing to it so we plunge faithfully through it
    And No matter how hard it rains if we don’t profit from the change
    We’re under the hammer totally

    You’re under the hammer from the day you was born
    Under the hammer and out there on your own
    Good advice don’t make it if there’s no one there to take it
    You’re back under the hammer totally

    Under the hammer from the day you was born
    Ain’t no surprising you now that you’re full grown
    Under the hammer from the day you was born
    Ain’t no surprising you now that you’re full grown
    Good advice don’t make it if there’s no one there to take it
    You’re just under the hammer totally

    What's Going On by Marvin Gaye

    Mother, mother
    There's too many of you crying
    Brother, brother, brother
    There's far too many of you dying
    You know we've got to find a way
    To bring some lovin' here today - Ya

    Father, father
    We don't need to escalate
    You see, war is not the answer
    For only love can conquer hate
    You know we've got to find a way
    To bring some lovin' here today

    Picket lines and picket signs
    Don't punish me with brutality
    Talk to me, so you can see
    Oh, what's going on
    What's going on
    Ya, what's going on
    Ah, what's going on

    In the mean time
    Right on, baby
    Right on
    Right on

    Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
    Oh, but who are they to judge us
    Simply because our hair is long
    Oh, you know we've got to find a way
    To bring some understanding here today
    Oh

    Picket lines and picket signs
    Don't punish me with brutality
    Talk to me
    So you can see
    What's going on
    Ya, what's going on
    Tell me what's going on
    I'll tell you what's going on - Uh
    Right on baby
    Right on baby

    Earth Crisis by Steel Pulse
    The Earth is the Lord's
    And the fullness thereof now
    Gave man his love and they
    Reward him with violence
    And in these last days
    Lend ears to what I say
    Man in his ignorant state
    Has signed and sealed his own fate
    Doctrines of the fallen angels
    To quench eternal flames of hell
    Doctrines of the fallen angels
    To quench eternal flames of hell

    CHORUS
    Earth crisis Earth crisis
    All this suffering
    Earth crisis Earth crisis

    Misguided people
    They don't seem to care
    They carry the symbol
    Of the eagle and the bear
    Across the globe
    Far east to far west
    High tax and cutbacks for military defence
    Doctrines of the fallen angels
    To quench eternal flames of hell
    Doctrines of the fallen angels
    To quench eternal flames of hell

    CHORUS
    Earth crisis Earth crisis
    All this suffering
    Earth crisis Earth crisis

    Super powers have a plan
    Undermining Third World man
    Suck their lands of minerals
    Creating famine and pestilence
    You hear what I say hear what I say

    The Earth is the Lord's
    And the fullness thereof now
    Gave man his love and they
    Reward him with violence
    And in these last days
    Lend ears to what I say
    Man in his ignorant state
    Has signed and sealed his own fate in this

    CHORUS
    Earth crisis
    In a Earth, in a Earth, in a dis ya time yah
    Earth crisis, Earth crisis
    You life in there hands just waiting to explode
    Earth crisis
    A touch of a button fingertip control
    Earth crisis
    It hardly surprising
    Earth crisis
    JAH kingdom rising
    Earth crisis
    All this suffering


    As by Stevie Wonder

    As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
    And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
    Just as hate knows love's the cure
    You can rest your mind assure
    That I'll be loving you always
    As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
    But in passing will grow older every day
    Just as all is born is new
    Do know what I say is true
    That I'll be loving you always

    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky---ALWAYS
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high---ALWAYS
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea---ALWAYS
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

    Did you know that true love asks for nothing
    Her acceptance is the way we pay
    Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
    To last through forever and another day
    Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
    And the seasons know exactly when to change
    Just as kindness knows no shame
    Know through all your joy and pain
    That I'll be loving you always
    As today I know I'm living but tomorrow
    Could make me the past but that I mustn't fear
    For I'll know deep in my mind
    The love of me I've left behind Cause I'll be loving you always

    Until the day is night and night becomes the day---ALWAYS
    Until the trees and seas just up and fly away---ALWAYS
    Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4---ALWAYS
    Until the day that is the day that are no more
    Did you know that you're loved by somebody?
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left---ALWAYS
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
    I'll be loving you forever
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through---ALWAYS
    Until the day that you are me and I am you---AL~~~~~~WA~~
    ~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~
    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky~~~~~AA~~~~
    ~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~YS~~ALWAYS

    We all know sometimes lifes hates and troubles
    Can make you wish you were born in another time and space
    But you can bet you life times that and twice its double
    That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed
    so make sure when you say you're in it but not of it
    You're not helping to make this earth a place sometimes called Hell
    Change your words into truths and then change that truth into love
    And maybe our children's grandchildren
    And their great-great grandchildren will tell
    I'll be loving you

    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky--Loving you
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high--Loving you
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea--Loving you
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream--Be loving you
    Until the day is night and night becomes the day--Loving you
    Until the trees and seas up, up and fly away--Loving you
    Until the day that 8x8x8x8 is 4--Loving you
    Until the day that is the day that are no more--Loving you
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left--Be loving you
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself--Loving you
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through--Loving you
    Until the day that you are me and I am you--
    Now ain't that loving you
    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Ain't that loving you
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    And I've got to say always
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea~~AL~~~WA~~~AYS
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream-Um AL~~WA~~AYS
    Until the day is night and night becomes the day-AL~~~~WA~~AYS
    Until the trees and seas just up and fly away-AL~~WA~~~AA~~~~~
    Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA~~~~~~~AA
    Until the day that is the day that are no more-AA~~~~AA~~AA~~~AYS
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left-AL~~~WA~~~A~~~AA
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself-~~AA~~~AA~~~AA~~~AYS
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through-AL~~~WAYS
    Until the day that you are me and I am you
    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
    Until the day is night and night becomes the day
    Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
    Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
    Until the day that is the day that are no more
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through
    Until the day that you are me and I am you

    Long Ago And Far Away by James Taylor

    Long ago, a young man sits and plays his waiting game.
    But things are not the same it seems as in such tender dreams.
    Slowly passing sailing ships and Sunday afternoon.
    Like people on the moon I see are things not meant to be.

    Where do those golden rainbows end? Why is this song so sad?
    Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend, loving the love I love
    to love is just a word I've heard when things are being said.
    Stories my poor head has told me cannot stand the cold.
    And in between what might have been and what has come to pass,
    a misbegotten guess alas and bits of broken glass.

    Where do your golden rainbows end? Why is this song I sing so sad?
    Dreaming the dreams I dream my friend, loving the love I love to love to love to love.

    Skálmöld -- Miðgarsörmur

    Sjórinn rauður sýður.
    Í sortanum hann bíður.
    Dagrenning og dauðastormur,
    í djúpinu er Miðgarðsormur.

    Gakktu út á gróinn núp,
    gáðu hvað mun prýða undirdjúp.
    Þarna yfir sjó og sand
    sérðu áfram líða Jörmundgand.

    Mæli ég því mikill er,
    Miðgarðsormur þræðir lönd og sker.
    Hann sem mig skal hitta vill
    hörfa þegar blæðir, kjarklítill.

    Renni ég færinu í fyrsta sinni,
    festi við þóftu í kænu minni.
    Annað sinn kasta, hann ekki bítur,
    ósnertri beitunni loks upp skýtur.

    Höfuð nautsins Himinhrjóðs
    Hilmar ormi færir, ei til góðs.
    Bannvænn sýnist bitinn þó
    blóðið Gandsins ærir hugarró.

    Fylgja mun þér fegurð, ef
    fellir orminn langa , sérhvert skref.
    Eiturgusa æta má
    ásjónu og vanga, tapi sá.

    Þriðja sinn kasta og þá hann tekur,
    þóftuna mölvar og bátinn skekur.
    Færið skal dregið af fullum krafti,
    fátækleg hönd móti ormsins kjafti.

    Reipið sker, gatar glófa.
    Gegnum fer, særir lófa.
    Krókur í kjaftinn rífur,
    krækjan því sker sem hnífur.

    Áfram þeir berjast báðir,
    bræður tveir, þreyttir, þjáðir.
    Takast á, tíminn líður,
    tengir þá strengum stríður.

    Höfuðið birtist í hafsins róti,
    heggur í bátinn og streitist á móti.
    Blaðinu sting svo að blóð út stekkur,
    bölvandi skepnan í hafrótið sekkur.

    Þegar hitti Þór
    þá munum við berjast.
    Staðfastur og stór
    standa mun og verjast.

    Agnið beit víst á,
    Ásgarður mig svíkur.
    Jörmundgandur, já,
    ég er sá sem víkur.

    Báru klýfru bátur
    og bátsmaður er kátur.
    Landið tekur, fleyið festir,
    þar fljúga yfir nokkrir þrestir.

    Aftru skepnan skríður
    í skjól og þar hann bíður.
    Létti til og lægði storminn
    er lagði Hilmar Miðgarðsorminn.

    At the beginning of a concept album:

    Skálmöld -- Oðinn

    Loki heitir, Óðinn opni
    augu Miðgarðs vætta.
    Oki undir, vondu vopni
    veldur, engra sætta.

    Ég er Óðinn, ég er Óðinn,
    ég er sá sem les í ljóðin,
    Hilmar Baldursson.

    Finnum duginn, ekki efast,
    alltaf sýna gæsku.
    Vinnum þegar sorgir sefast, sjaldan beitum græsku.

    Ég er Óðinn, ég er Óðinn,
    ég er sá sem les í ljóðin,
    Hilmar Baldursson.

    Sofa skaltu, aldrei ata
    árar sálu tæra.
    Lofa Óðin, heimskir hata,
    heiðna sinnið næra.

    Ég er Óðinn, ég er Óðinn,
    ég er sá sem les í ljóðin,
    Hilmar Baldursson.

    ...and then, at the end of the same album:

    Skálmöld -- Loki (excerpt)

    (beginning of song deleted)

    Næra sinnið, heiðna hata,
    heimskir Óðin lofa.
    Tæra sálu árar ata,
    aldrei skaltu sofa.

    Ég er Loki, ég er Loki,
    þú ert undir mínu oki,
    Hilmar Baldursson.

    Græsku beitum, sjaldan sefast
    sorgir þegar vinnum.
    Gæsku sína alltaf efast,
    ekki duginn finnum.

    Ég er Loki, ég er Loki,
    þú ert undir mínu oki,
    Hilmar Baldursson.

    Sæta engra veldur vopni,
    vondu udnir oki.
    Vætta Miðgarðs augu opni,
    Óðinn heitir Loki.

    Ég er Loki, ég er Loki,
    þú ert undir mínu oki,
    Hilmar Baldursson.

    Sourceless, rythmless, heartless.
    I scan the desert.
    Since I, in my beasthood saw dancers there.
    As my hands, two tiny figures. Came visible,
    like a carnival of flesh.
    A union of monstrosities.

    Curveless, boundless, eyeless.
    I flee from the source of my agony.
    Since I, in my beasthood, took form
    in new, alien anatomies.
    My limbs towering, mounting in celebration.
    Murmuring the approval of new glories;
    new threats, new intimacy.

    With this, I am fit to charm the Devil.
    Sneering down my pale face.
    I am erect with his anger and lust.
    I am the grace of them all.

    Still sneering, drooling, floating.
    Breeding curves of hell.
    And shreds of pre-human gloss.
    This softens those songs to dust.

    Sail that ship about, all alone
    Neverknow if I make it home

    and 2nd place
    Like to tell you 'bout my baby
    You know she comes round
    Just 'bout five feet four
    From her head to the ground
    Well she comes around here
    Just about midnight
    She makes me feel so good Lord
    Makes me feel alright.

    Her name is G-L-O-R-I-A
    Gloria, Gloria, Gloria

    Yeah, she comes around here
    Just about midnight
    Makes me feel so good Lord
    Makes me feel alright
    Walkin' down my street
    Comes up to my house
    She knocks upon me door
    Makes me feel alright.

    Her name is G-L-O-R-I-A
    Gloria, Gloria, Gloria

    Sorry, but I'm too feeble-minded to transcribe any lyrics from these guys, but Hendrix, Dylan, Zappa, and Chuck Berry, all have written some good lyrics.

    Did the Supremes really sing this line in a song in the 1960s?

    "Baby baby ooh ooh my baby now."

    Look at it word for word. The entire first song and the last stanzas of the last song are the same words, in the opposite order, and it makes perfect sense both ways.

    Miðgarsörmur is likely lost on anyone not studying Icelandic, but there's some really nice language in there.
