    This thread is for posting the lyrics to songs that you like. I am moved more by the music than the lyrics at first but when I discover a song I really like I love to look up the words.

    "Fly From The Inside"

    by Shinedown


    Here's the weight of the world on my shoulders
    Here's the weight of the world on my shoulders
    On my shoulders
    All alone I pierce the chain
    And on and on the sting remains
    And dieing eyes consume me now
    The voice inside screams out loud

    [Chorus:]
    I am focused on what I am after
    The key to the next open chapter
    Cause I found a way to steal the sun from the sky
    Long live that day that I decided to fly from the inside

    Every day a new deception
    Pick your scene and take direction
    And on and on I search to connect
    But I don't wear a mask and I have no regrets

    I am focused on what I am after
    The key to the next open chapter

    [Chorus]

    I can't escape the pain
    I can't control the rage
    Sometimes I think that I'm gonna go insane
    I'm not against what's right
    I'm not for what's wrong
    I'm just making my way and I'm gone

    Here's the weight of the world on my shoulders

    [Chorus x2]

    "The Quiet Place"
    by In Flames

    Spinning further, deeper
    I know you're out to try me
    I'm not in this to be a slave
    Push the dirt, make me feel
    Locate what swallows life
    Night bird you build my world

    ..and then I close my eyes
    ..and then I close my eyes

    Judge me now
    Used to be afraid to let it show, bow down
    A king in my own mind
    Everything's in place so much brighter from today

    Drown the monster
    Make all bad dreams go away
    Whatever it takes to keep running free
    Open scars, the quiet place
    All the bridges fall to the ground and you say you sacrificed

    ..and then I close my eyes
    ..and then I close my eyes

    Judge me now
    Used to be afraid to let it show, bow down, bow down!
    A king in my own mind
    Everything's in place so much brighter from today
    A king in my own mind

    Judge me now
    A king in my own mind
    Judge me now
    A king in my own mind

    Judge me now
    Used to be afraid to let it show, Bow down, bow down!
    A king in my own mind
    Everything's in place so much brighter from today
    A king in my own mind

    I, I’m driving black on black
    Just got my license back
    I got this feeling in my veins this train is coming off the track
    I’ll ask polite if the devil needs a ride
    Because the angel on my right ain’t hanging out with me tonight
    I’m driving past your house while you were sneaking out
    I got the car door opened up so you can jump in on the run
    Your mom don’t know that you were missing
    She’d be pissed if she could see the parts of you that I’ve been kissing
    Screamin’

    No, we’re never gonna quit
    Ain’t nothing wrong with it
    Just acting like we’re animals
    No, no matter where we go
    ‘Cause everybody knows
    We’re just a couple of animals

    So come on baby, get in
    Get in, just get in
    Check out the trouble we’re in

    You’re beside me on the seat
    Got your hand between my knees
    And you control how fast we go by just how hard you wanna squeeze
    It’s hard to steer when you’re breathing in my ear
    But I got both hands on the wheel while you got both hands on my gears
    By now, no doubt that we were heading south
    I guess nobody ever taught her not to speak with a full mouth
    ‘Cause this was it, like flicking on a switch
    It felt so good I almost drove into the ditch
    I’m screamin’

    No, we’re never gonna quit
    Ain’t nothing wrong with it
    Just acting like we’re animals
    No, no matter where we go
    ‘Cause everybody knows
    We’re just a couple of animals

    So come on baby, get in
    Get in, just get in
    Look at the trouble we’re in

    We were parked out by the tracks
    We’re sitting in the back
    And we just started getting busy
    When she whispered “what was that?”
    The wind, I think ‘cause no one else knows where we are
    And that was when she started screamin’
    “That’s my dad outside the car!”
    Oh please, the keys, they’re not in the ignition
    Must have wound up on the floor while
    we were switching our positions
    I guess they knew that she was missing
    As I tried to tell her dad it was her mouth that I was kissing
    Screamin’

    No, we’re never gonna quit
    Ain’t nothing wrong with it
    Just acting like we’re animals
    No, no matter where we go
    ‘Cause everybody knows
    We’re just a couple animals

    So come on baby, get in
    We’re just a couple of animals
    Get in, just get in
    Ain’t nothing wrong with it
    Check out the trouble we’re in
    Get in, just get in

    "Cold" - Crossfade

    Looking back at me I see
    That I never really got it right
    I never stopped to think of you
    I'm always wrapped up in
    Things I cannot win
    You are the antidote that gets me by
    Something strong
    Like a drug that gets me high

    [Chorus x2:]
    What I really meant to say
    Is I'm sorry for the way I am
    I never meant to be so cold

    To you I'm sorry about all the lies
    Maybe in a different light
    You could see me stand on my own again
    Cause now i can see
    You were the antidote that got me by
    Something strong like a drug that got me high

    [Chorus x2]

    I never meant to be so cold

    I never really wanted you to see
    The screwed up side of me that I keep
    Locked inside of me so deep
    It always seems to get to me
    I never really wanted you to go
    So many things you should have known
    I guess for me theres just no hope
    I never meant to be so cold

    [Chorus x2]

    BREAKING BENJAMIN - We Are Not Alone

    "Simple Design"

    I live a chemical life
    I'm on a mission to try
    You went insane for a day
    I'll have to shove it away
    My only option is gone
    Smile as they break and they fall
    You want a simpler life
    You can't erase what was mine

    [Pre-Chorus:]
    You must be out of your mind!
    This was a simple design!
    You fuck it up everytime
    How could you leave me behind

    [Chorus:]
    It's alright, it's alright
    'cause I know what you want
    but you'll just have to wait
    If I had it to give
    I would give it away
    I'm living it up
    while I'm falling from grace
    There's no way, there's no way that I'm running away

    I'm used to making it worse
    Made up of four letter words
    You wanna know what it was
    Now isolated and gone
    You fall apart at the seams
    I'll never know what it means
    Try not to pull it apart
    Your aiming straight from the heart

    [Pre-chorus]

    [Chorus]

    It had to be the worst for me
    I don't know what to say so let me be
    And now I find you left me behind
    I don't know what to say so nevermind!

    You're mine!

    [Chorus]

    I know. It does sometimes. I'm waiting to see what their 3rd CD will sound like. Not sure when it's due out, but I'll check it out I'm sure. :dance

    The last Breaking Benjamin CD, "We Are Not Alone" really helped me through a hard time in my life a year and a half ago. :cool

    It's amazing how music does that eh?

    Music and my interest in cars saved my life ... Long story ... and no reason to dredge up the dead.

    It is amazing! There is something spiritual about music, the way it moves you and sooths you. I never really opened my inner self up to music until latter in life but I'm glad I finally did. :cool

    "Sultans Of Swing" - DIRE STRAITS

    You get a shiver in the dark
    It's been raining in the park but meantime
    South of the river you stop and you hold everything
    A band is blowing Dixie double four time
    You feel all right when you hear that music ring

    You step inside but you don't see too many faces
    Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
    Too much competition too many other places
    But not too many horns can make that sound
    Way on downsouth way on downsouth London town

    You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords
    Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing
    And an old guitar is all he can afford
    When he gets up under the lights to play his thing

    And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene
    He's got a daytime job he's doing alright
    He can play honky tonk just like anything
    Saving it up for Friday night
    With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing

    Amd a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner
    Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
    They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band
    It ain't what they call rock and roll
    And the Sultans played Creole

    And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
    And says at last just as the time bell rings
    'Thank you goodnight now it's time to go home'
    and he makes it fast with one more thing
    'We are the Sultans of Swing'

    FYI: I'm not on drugs, but I've seen it's effect on friends and family members.

    "Save My" by Shinedown (alt. metal)

    I got a candle
    And I’ve got a spoon
    I live in a hallway with no doors
    And no rooms

    Under a windowsill
    They all were found
    A touch of concrete within the doorway
    Without a sound

    Someone save me if you will
    And take away all these pills
    And please just save me if you can
    From the blasphemy in my wasteland

    How did I get here
    And what went wrong
    Couldn’t handle forgiveness
    Now I’m far beyond gone

    I can hardly remember
    The look of my own eyes
    How can I love this a life so dishonest
    It made me compromise

    Someone save me if you will
    And take away all these pills
    And please just save me if you can
    From the blasphemy in my wasteland

    Jump in the water
    Jump in with me
    Jump on the alter
    Lay down with me

    The hardest question to answer
    Is why

    Why

    Someone save me if you will
    And take away all these pills
    And please just save me if you can
    From the blasphemy in my wasteland

    Someone save me
    Someone save me
    Somebody save me
    Somebody save me
    Please don’t erase me

    SIMPLE MAN (Lynyrd Skynyrd)


    Mama told me when I was young
    Come sit beside me, my only son
    And listen closely to what I say.
    And if you do this
    It will help you some sunny day.
    Take your time... don’t live too fast,
    Troubles will come and they will pass.
    Go find a woman and you’ll find love,
    And don’t forget son,
    There is someone up above.

    And be a simple kind of man.
    Be something you love and understand.
    Be a simple kind of man.
    Won’t you do this for me son,
    If you can?

    Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
    All that you need is in your soul,
    And you can do this if you try.
    All that I want for you my son,
    Is to be satisfied.

    Boy, don’t you worry... you’ll find yourself.
    Follow you heart and nothing else.
    And you can do this if you try.
    All I want for you my son,
    Is to be satisfied.

    "Heartbreaker" - Led Zeppelin /(one of the greatest guitar solos ever is in this song ....

    Hey fellas, have you heard the news? You know that Annie's back in town?
    It won't take long just watch and see how the fellas lay their money down.
    Her style is new but the face is the same as it was so long ago,
    But from her eyes, a different smile like that of one who knows.

    Well, it's been ten years and maybe more since I first set eyes on you.
    The best years of my life gone by, here I am alone and blue.
    Some people cry and some people die by the wicked ways of love;
    But I'll just keep on rollin' along with the grace of the Lord above.

    People talkin' all around 'bout the way you left me flat,
    I don't care what the people say, I know where their jive is at.
    One thing I do have on my mind, if you can clarify please do,
    It's the way you call me by another guy's name when I try to make love to you.
    I try to make love but it ain't no use.

    Work so hard I couldn't unwind, get some money saved;
    Abuse my love a thousand times, however hard I tried.
    Heartbreaker, your time has come, can't take your evil way;
    Go away, Heartbreaker.

    "Deify" - by DISTURBED

    All my devotion betrayed
    I am no longer afraid
    I was too blinded to see
    How much you've stolen from me

    You want to know why I feel so horrified?
    I've let my innocence die
    You want to know why I can't be pacified?
    You made me bury something
    I won't be sleeping tonight

    I only wanted a blessing made
    Now I've been labeled a renegade
    It seems so clear now what I must do
    You're no immortal
    I won't let them
    Deify you
    They view you as the new messiah
    Deify you
    Renew belief in some demented man

    You want to know why it seems the passion's died?
    We've all been living this lie
    You want to know why my will's been fortified?
    You've made me hunger again
    Good luck sleeping tonight

    I only wanted a blessing made
    Now I've been labeled a renegade
    It seems so clear now what I must do
    You're no immortal
    I won't let them
    Deify you
    They view you as the new messiah
    Deify you
    Renew belief in some demented man

    All my devotion betrayed
    I am no longer afraid
    I was too blinded to see
    How much you've stolen from me

    Deify you
    They view you as the new messiah
    Deify you
    Renew belief in some demented man

    "A Trace Of Blood" By Pain of Salvation

    (By the by, this group has one of the greatest vocalists in the history of music. anyone who knows anything about written music ... he hits a G sharp above the Treble clef ... in his head voice, not in falceto)

    Touching ground Going home to those I miss
    Safe and sound Weeks of exile turn to bliss
    But there's something in her voice When she is calling me
    A trace of blood to lead me
    Through roads of agony With blood taste in my mouth
    And clouds before my eyes
    I kneel beside the bed Where my bleeding dryad lies

    Three young souls in misery

    Hitting ground Nausea wakes me up at dawn
    Hopes are found
    Dissected, turned and then
    Withdrawn
    A chair of steel and wire Her legs are open wide
    Helpless in myself I stand there cold beside
    The doctors stay away Leave us with this dismay
    To see the colours of a miracle Fade and turn to gray

    Then a cry and rivers of blood Flow so sadly
    bringing you
    Our dreams pour into a cold tray Two young souls in misery
    Missing you

    "How quickly the colors change
    from blue to red to black
    and why am I always away
    wrapped up in something
    unable to live with all this
    love
    I ask of the world to leave
    to be silent and pretend
    that it never happend"

    I never knew your name but I will miss you just the same
    I was to live for you I lost the will to live at all the day you came
    It'll never be the same but I will love you just the same
    You were to be the first, how wonderful
    Now I will always fear to hope again

    The irony Of seeing me whispering through her skin
    So joyfully To our child there deep within
    Or of when she called to me To tell me cheerfully
    That she had seen your shape On a hospital screen
    And of nurses being concerned That you never moved or turned
    Too late we see the warnings Too late we learn

    [Hallgren]
    [Gildenlow]

    I never saw your face and now you're gone without a trace
    Except the trace of blood that's deeply scarred into my eyes To fill your place
    It'll never be the same but I will love you just the same
    I was prepared to be your father How can I ever prepare for that again?

    Still I follow that trace of blood Always leading back to you
    Hollow years of damming that flood Two young souls in misery

    Missing you... missing you...

    BLOWING IN THE WIND
    Bob Dylan


    How many roads must a man walk down, before they call him a
    man
    How many seas must a white dove sail, before she sleeps in
    the sand
    How many times must the cannonballs fly, before they are
    forever banned
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the wind

    How many years must a mountain exist, before it is washed to
    the sea
    How many years can some people exist, before they're allowed
    to be free
    How many times can a man turn his head, and pretend that he
    just doesn't see
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the wind

    How many times must a man look up, before he can see the sky

    How many years must one man have, before he can hear people
    cry
    How many deaths will it take till he knows, that too many
    people have died
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the wind
