Not Music, Just Lyrics.

Okay, Mushu.

While those were some very intelligent lyrics here and there, can you please try to find cleaner lyrics, so I don't have to do so much editting. :(

Youz' gonna get me into problems before we get going here lol.

--

Also, can we have just one rule:

Nothing Rude, lewd or in poor taste, omit those lyrics that may be offensive to shiachat board rules.

--

Okay, I realise this can be a bit vague for some, so many songs have great messages, so if you don't know what to post try looking for lyrics you think are anthems of shias. Note to Mods/ Admins: I said lyrics that are anthems (Not songs) :angel:

Where I come from and around the time I reverted to Shi'i Islam I felt very alienated as my sunni brethren around me were a bit antagonistic. Now years have passed and they seem to be very tolerant and respectful, I can't complain. Allah bless them.

These lyrics at the time of feeling alienated resonated with me... ...people were calling me a "Rafidhi" (A Rebel)

Bad Company - Bad Company:

Company, always on the run

Destiny is the rising sun

Oh, I was born 6-gun in my hand

Behind a gun I'll make my final stand

That's why they call me

Bad company

And I can't deny

Bad company

Till the day I die

Oh, till the day I die

Till the day I die

Rebel souls, deserters we are called

Chose a gun and threw away the sword

Now these towns, they all know our name

6-gun sound is our claim to fame

I can hear them say

Bad company

And I won't deny

Bad, bad company

Till the day I die, oo yeah

Till the day I die, oo

Hey

Bad company

And I can't deny

Bad company

Till the day I die

And I say it's

Bad company, oh yeah yeah

Bad company

Till the day I die, oh yeah

Tell me that you are not a thief

Oh but I am bad company

It's the way I play dirty for dirty

Oh, somebody double-crossed me

Double-cross, double-cross

Yeah, we're bad company

--

I used to read the line: "Destiny is the rising sun" as "Destiny is the rising son"

IraqiShia, thanks for that. Your frustrations are understandable, they are heartfelt, I salute you.

Yes we are "waiting" but we must be "waiting" (Actively) by preparing for the arrival as the lyrics suggest.

Salam,

Lowkey - Terrorist

[intro]

So, We must ask ourselves, What is the dictionary definition of "Terrorism"?

The systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion

But what is terror?

According to the dictionary I hold in my hand, Terror, is violent or destructive acts

Such as bombing committed by groups in order to intimidate a population,

Or government into granting their demands

So whats a terrorist?

[Hook]

They're calling me a terrorist

Like they don't know who the terror is

When they put it on me, I tell them this

I'm all about peace and love

They calling me a terrorist

Like they don't know who the terror is

Insulting my intelligence

Oh how these people judge..

[Verse 1]

It seems like the Rag-heads and Paki's are worrying your Dad

But your dad's favorite food is curry and kebab

It's funny, but it's sad how they make your mummy hurry with her bags

Rather read The Sun than study all the facts

Tell me, what's the bigger threat to human society

BAE Systems or home made IED's

Remote controlled drones, killing off human lives

Or man with home made bomb committing suicide

I know you were terrified when you saw the towers fall

It's all terror but some forms are more powerful

It seems nuts, how could there be such agony

When more Israeli's die from peanut allergies

It's like the definition didn't ever exist

I guess it's all just depending who your nemesis is

Irrelevant how eloquent the rhetoric peddler is

They're telling fibs, now tell us who the real terrorist is

[Hook]

They're calling me a terrorist

Like they don't know who the terror is

When they put it on me, I tell them this

I'm all about peace and love

They calling me a terrorist

Like they don't know who the terror is

Insulting my intelligence

Oh how these people judge..

[Verse 2]

Lumumba was democracy - Mossadegh was democracy

Allende was democracy - Hypocrisy it bothers me

Call you terrorists if you don't wanna be a colony

We used to bow down to a policy of robbery

Is terrorism my lyrics?

When more Vietnam vets kill themselves after the war than died in it?

This is very basic..

One nation in the world has over a thousand military bases

They say it's religion, when clearly it isn't

It's not just Muslims that oppose your imperialism

Is Hugo Chavez a Muslim? Nah.. I didn't think so

Is Castro a Muslim? Nah.. I didn't think so

It's like the definition didn't ever exist

I guess it's all just depending who your nemesis is

Irrelevant how eloquent the rhetoric peddler is

They're telling fibs, now tell us who the terrorist is

[Hook]

They're calling me a terrorist

Like they don't know who the terror is

When they put it on me, I tell them this

I'm all about peace and love

They calling me a terrorist

Like they don't know who the terror is

Insulting my intelligence

Oh how these people judge..

[Outro x2]

You think that I don't know,

But I know, I know, I know

You think that we don't know

But we know

You think that I don't know,

But I know, I know, I know

You think that we don't know

But we DO

**

Was Building 7 terrorism?

Was nanothermite terrorism?

Diego Garcia was terrorism,

I am conscious the Contras was terrorism,

Phosphorous that burns hands - that is terrorism,

Irgun and Stern Gang that was terrorism,

What they did in Hiroshima was terrorism,

What they did in Fallujah was terrorism,

Mandela ANC - that was terrorism,

Jerry Adams IRA - that was terrorism,

Eric Prince black water - it was terrorism,

Oklahoma, McVeigh - that was terrorism,

Everyday USA - that is terrorism,

Everyday UK - that is terrorism,

Everyday...

Look Into My Eyes - Outlandish

Look into my eyes Tell me what ya see U don't see a damn thing Cuz u can't relate to me

U blinded by our differences My life makes no sense to u I'm the persecuted one U the red, white and blue

Each day u wake in tranquility No fears to cross your eyes Each day I wake in gratitude Thankin' God He let me rise

Ya worry 'bout your education And the bills u have to pay I worry 'bout my vulnerable life And if I'll survive another day

Ya biggest fear is getting a ticket As ya cruise your Cadillac My fear is that the tank that's just left Will turn around and come back

Yet do u know the truth of where ya money goes Do u let the media deceive your mind Is this a truth that nobody nobody nobody knows Some one tell me

Oh let's not cry tonight I promise you one day it's through Ohohoh my brothers Ohohoh my sisters

Oh shine a light for every soul That ain't with us no more Ohohoh my brothers Ohohoh my sisters

See I've known terror for quite some times 57 years so cruel Terror breathes the air I breathe It's the check point on my way to school

Terror is the robbery of my land And the torture of my mother The imprisonment of my innocent father The bullet in my baby brother

The bulldozers and the tanks The gasses and the guns The bombs that fall outside my door All due to your funds

You blame me for defending myself Against the ways of my enemies I'm terrorized in my own land And I'm the terrorist

Yet do u know the truth of where ya money goes Do u let the media deceive your mind Is this a truth that nobody nobody nobody knows Some one tell me

Oh let's not cry tonight I promise you one day it's through Ohohoh my brothers Ohohoh my sisters

Oh shine a light for every soul That ain't with us no more Ohohoh my brothers Ohohoh my sisters

American do ya realize That the taxes that u pay Feed the forces that traumatize My every living day

So if I won't be here tomorrow It's written in my fate May the future bring a brighter day The end of our wait

Oh let's not cry tonight I promise you one day it's through Ohohoh my brothers Ohohoh my sisters

Oh shine a light for every soul That ain't with us no more Ohohoh my brothers Ohohoh my sisters

This is from the 60s:

Barry McGuire (Written By PF Sloan) - Eve Of Destruction

The eastern world it is explodin',

Violence flarin', bullets loadin',

You're old enough to kill but not for votin',

You don't believe in war, what's that gun you're totin',

And even the Jordan river has bodies floatin',

But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,

Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

Don't you understand, what I'm trying to say?

Can't you see the fear that I'm feeling today?

If the button is pushed, there's no running away,

There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave,

Take a look around you, boy, it's bound to scare you, boy,

But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,

Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin',

I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin',

I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation,

Handful of Senators don't pass legislation,

And marches alone can't bring integration,

When human respect is disintegratin',

This whole crazy world is just too frustratin',

And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,

Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

Think of all the hate there is in Red China!

Tehn take a look around to Selma, Alabama!

Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,

But when your return, it's the same old place,

The poundin' of the drums, th pride and disgrace,

You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace,

Hate your next-door-neighbour, but don't forget to say grace,

And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend,

Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

Salam

Here's a frencg song from Corneille, I think orginally from Rwanda or Congo, where he witnessed his family's death by a home invasion during a civil war.

On Vient De Loins"

Nous sommes nos propre pères

Si jeunes et Pourtant si vieux

Ca me fait penser Tu sais

Nous sommes nos propre mères

Si jeunes et si serieux Mais ça va changer

On passe le temps à faire des plans pour le lendemain

Pendant que le beau temps

Passe et nous laisse vide et incertain

On perd trop de temps à suer s'écorcher les mains

à quoi ca sert si on est pas sûre de voir demain.

A rien

refrain

Alors on vit chaque jour comme le dernier

Et vous feriez pareil si seulement vous saviez

Combien de fois la fin du monde nous a frolé

Alors on vit chaque jour comme le dernier

Parce qu'on vient de loin

Mais quand les temps sont dures

On se dit pire que notre histoire n'existe pas

Et quand l'hiver perdure

On se dit simplement que la chaleur nous reviendra

Et c'est facile comme ça

Jours après jours

On voit combien tout est ephemère

Alors même en amour

J'aimerai chaque haine comme si c'etait la derniere

L'air est trop lourd

Quand on ne vit que sur des prières

Moi je savoure chaque instant Bien avant

Que s'eteigne la lumiere

refrain

Jour après jour

On voit combien tout est ephémere

Alors vivont pendant qu'on peut encore le faire

Mes chers

refrain x2 [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/c/corneille/

...,also, a bit off topic, but would anyone know a link with ENGLISH nasheeds (like sami yusuf, for example)

I'm glad things are going in the right direction here...

Okay here's another:

Neil Young - Rockin' In The Free World

There's colors on the street

Red, white and blue

People shufflin' their feet

People sleepin' in their shoes

But there's a warnin' sign

on the road ahead

There's a lot of people sayin'

we'd be better off dead

Don't feel like Satan,

but I am to them

So I try to forget it,

any way I can.

Keep on rockin' in the free world, (x4)

I see a woman in the night

With a baby in her hand

Under an old street light

Near a garbage can

Now she puts the kid away,

and she's gone to get a hit

She hates her life,

and what she's done to it

There's one more kid

that will never go to school

Never get to fall in love,

never get to be cool.

Keep on rockin' in the free world, (x4).

We got a thousand points of light

For the homeless man

We got a kinder, gentler,

Machine gun hand

We got department stores

and toilet paper

Got styrofoam boxes

for the ozone layer

Got a man of the people,

says keep hope alive

Got fuel to burn,

got roads to drive.

Keep on rockin' in the free world, (x4)

It appears to be a pro-american right-wing bleeing-heart patriotism;

King Crimson- Epitaph

The wall on which the prophets wrote

Is cracking at the seams.

Upon the instruments of death

The sunlight brightly gleams.

When every man is torn apart

With nightmares and with dreams,

Will no one lay the laurel wreath

When silence drowns the screams.

Confusion will be my epitaph.

As I crawl a cracked and broken path

If we make it we can all sit back

and laugh.

But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,

Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.

Between the iron gates of fate,

The seeds of time were sown,

And watered by the deeds of those

Who know and who are known;

Knowledge is a deadly friend

When no one sets the rules.

The fate of all mankind I see

Is in the hands of fools.

Confusion will be my epitaph.

As I crawl a cracked and broken path

If we make it we can all sit back

and laugh.

But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,

Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.

Bob Marley - Redemption Song

Old pirates, yes, they rob I;

Sold I to the merchant ships,

Minutes after they took I

From the bottomless pit.

But my hand was made strong

By the hand of the Almighty.

We forward in this generation

Triumphantly.

Won't you help to sing

These songs of freedom?

'Cause all I ever have:

Redemption songs,

Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;

None but ourselves can free our minds.

Have no fear for atomic energy,

'Cause none of them can stop the time.

How long shall they kill our prophets,

While we stand aside and look? Ooh!

Some say it's just a part of it:

We've got to fulfill the Book.

Won't you help to sing

These songs of freedom?

'Cause all I ever have:

Redemption songs,

Redemption songs,

Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;

None but ourselves can free our mind.

Wo! Have no fear for atomic energy,

'Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.

Yes, some say it's just a part of it:

Here's another...

Castles Made of Sand - Jimi Hendrix

Down the street you can hear her scream you're a disgrace

As she slams the door in his drunken face

And now he stands outside

And all the neighbors start to gossip and drool

He cries oh, girl you must be mad,

What happened to the sweet love you and me had?

Against the door he leans and starts a scene,

And his tears fall and burn the garden green

And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually

A little Indian brave who before he was ten,

Played war games in the woods with his Indian friends

And he built up a dream that when he grew up

He would be a fearless warrior Indian Chief

Many moons past and more the dream grew strong until

Tomorrow he would sing his first war song and fight his first battle

But something went wrong, surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

And so castles made of sand melt into the sea, eventually

There was a young girl, who's heart was a frown

cause she was crippled for life,

And she couldn't speak a sound

And she wished and prayed she could stop living,

So she decided to die

She drew her wheelchair to the edge of the shore

And to her legs she smiled you wont hurt me no more

But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say

Look a golden winged ship is passing my way

And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going...

And so castles made of sand slips into the sea, eventually

Panther Power - Tupac Shakur

[Tupac]

As real as it seems the American Dream

Ain't nothing but another calculated schemes

To get us locked up shot up back in chains

To deny us of the future rob our names

Kept my history of mystery but now I see

The American Dream wasn't meant for me

Cause lady liberty is a hypocrite she lied to me

Promised me freedom, education, equality

Never gave me nothing but slavery

And now look at how dangerous you made me

Calling me a mad man cause I'm strong and bold

With this dump full of knowledge of the lies you told

Promise me emancipation indispute nation

All you gave my people was our patience

Fathers of our country never cared for me

They kept my answer shackled up in slavery

And Uncle Sam never did a dam thing for me

Except lie about the facts in my history

So now I'm sitting hear mad cause I'm unemployed

But the government's glad cause they enjoyed

When my people are down so they can screw us around

Time to change the government now panther power

[Chorus]

Panther power

Panther power

Panther power

[Tyson]

Coming straight that resides within

Go toe to toe with a panther and you just can't win

Suffered fame bats suppressed the rest

The rich get richer and the poor can't last

The American Dream was an American nightmare

You kept my people down and refuse to fight fair

The Klu Klux Klan tried to keep us out

Besides drew they know no blacks allowed

With intimidation and segregation was a way for our freedom

But now were impatient

Blacks the other skin: dead or sell outs

Freedom, equality, then I'll yell out

"Don't you ever be ashamed of what you are

It's ya panther power that makes you a star"

Panther power

[Chorus]

Panther power

Panther power

Panther power

[Tupac]

My Mother never let me forget my history

Hoping I was set free chains never put on me

Wanted to be more than just free

Had to know the true facts about my history

I couldn't settle for being a statistic

Couldn't survive in this capitalistic

Government cause it was meant to hold us back

Using ignorant, drugs, to sneak attack

In my community think of unity

But when I charged them, tried to claim immunity

I strike America like a case of hard disease

Panther power is running through my arteries

Try to stop oh boy you'll be clawed to death

Cause I'll be fighting for my freedom with my dying breath

Do you remember that is what I'm asking you?

You think you living free don't let me laugh at you

Open your eyes realize that you have been locked in chains

Said you wasn't civilized and stole your name

Cause some time has passed seem you all forget

There ain't no liberty to you and me we all ain't free yet

Panter power

[Chorus]

Panther power

Panther power

Panther power

[Tupac]

As real as it seems the American Dream

Ain't nothing but another calculated schemes

To get us locked up shot up back in chains

To deny us of the future rob our names

Gaza tonight

A blinding flash of white light

Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight

People running for cover

Not knowing whether they're dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes

With ravaging fiery flames

And nothing remains

Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools

But our spirit will never die

We will not go down

In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike

Murdered and massacred night after night

While the so-called leaders of countries afar

Debated on who's wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain

And the bombs fell down like acid rain

But through the tears and the blood and the pain

You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools

But our spirit will never die

We will not go down

In Gaza tonight

Um.. were the lyrics I posted too offensive? It wasn't obsene and it was thought provoking.. :donno:

If you're talking about the Immortal Technique one you posted the other day, then yes, it was a bit too vulgar for me to approve due to the theme of the song (I've heard it before).

Sorry.

NOTE: The song contains swearing, I edited those parts out.

Immortal Technique – The Martyr:

I’m content to die for my beliefs

So cut off my head and make me a Martyr

The people will always remember it

“No. They will forget”

A man who walks with God, can walk anywhere

Hence.. I fear nothing

The point of guerilla war, is not to succeed

It’s always been just to make the enemy bleed

Deprivin’ the soldiers of the peace of mind that they need

Bullets are hard to telegraph when they bob and they weave

The only way a Guerilla War can ever be over

Is when the occupation, can’t afford more soldiers

Until they have to draft the last of you into the service

And you refuse cause you don’t see the purpose

The only way to counter the insurgents that are well-equipped

Is to paint the people fighting for freedom as terrorists

Then find a faction lookin’ for foreign investments

You stall them with power and murder any objections

You can’t stop a revolution from breathin’

So to beat ‘em they offer people the illusion of freedom

But when you’re done dreamin’ and wake up, tortured for treason

Then you can see them, hidin’ behind the God they believe in

Deep in the trenches in the heart of a war

That’s the place a Martyr is born

During the night before the start of the dawn

That’s the place a Martyr is born

When the gunshots are rainin’ in the heart of a storm

That’s the place a Martyr is born

Guerilla war when the army is gone

That’s the place a Martyr is born

The purpose of life is a life with a purpose

So I’d rather die for a cause than live a life that is worthless

I don’t need the circus or the day of national observance

I need you to think for you and stop being a servant

Pawns only move a square in the game that they’re used in

And realise it too late, like the shootin’ of Huey Newton

Or Patrice Lumumba and Salvador Allende

Slaughter by the power hungry branches of their own gente

Ghandi wasn’t killed by Pakistani nationals

He was assassinated by a Hindu radical

And Che Guevara, rebel to a U.S. continent

Was sold to the C.I.A. by Bolivian communists

Wasn’t Yitzhak Rabin murdered by a Zionist

And Anwar Sadat a victim of the same violence?

Malcolm X was seen as a threat to the F.B.I.

But to blast ‘em they used Muslims from the N.O.I.

Even the 35th President of the Republic

Was murdered by factions of his own government

So now that it’s proven, that a soldier of Revolution

Or head of an empire, disguised in a Constitution

Can not escape the retribution or manipulation

Of the self-appointed rulers of the planets corporations

So Imma need every generation to put your hands up

Cause you can only get ‘em off your back when you stand up!

Deep in the trenches in the heart of a war

That’s the place a Martyr is born

During the night before the start of the dawn

That’s the place a Martyr is born

When the gunshots are rainin’ in the heart of a storm

That’s the place a Martyr is born

Guerilla war when the army is gone

That’s the place a Martyr is born

The following is from an awesome Montreal poet- Leonard Cohen

"In My Secret Life"

I saw you this morning.

You were moving so fast.

Can’t seem to loosen my grip

On the past.

And I miss you so much.

There’s no one in sight.

In My Secret Life.

I smile when I’m angry.

I cheat and I lie.

I do what I have to do

To get by.

But I know what is wrong,

And I know what is right.

And I’d die for the truth

In My Secret Life.

Hold on, hold on, my brother.

My sister, hold on tight.

I finally got my orders.

I’ll be marching through the morning,

Marching through the night,

Moving cross the borders

Of My Secret Life.

Looked through the paper.

Makes you want to cry.

Nobody cares if the people

Live or die.

And the dealer wants you thinking

That it’s either black or white.

Thank God it’s not that simple

In My Secret Life.

I bite my lip.

I buy what I’m told:

From the latest hit,

To the wisdom of old.

But I’m always alone.

And my heart is like ice.

And it’s crowded and cold

In My Secret Life.

Fly Away - Lenny Kravitz

I wish that I could fly

Into the sky

So very high

Just like a dragonfly

I'd fly above the trees

Over the seas in all degrees

To anywhere I please

Oh I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah yeah yeah

Oh I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah yeah yeah

Let's go and see the stars

The Milky Way or even Mars

Where they could just be ours

Let's fade into the sun

Let your spirit fly

For we are one

Just for a little fun

Oh, oh, oh yeah !

I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah yeah yeah

I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah yeah yeah

I got to get away

Girl I got to get away

Oh oh oh yeah

I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah with you yeah yeah

Oh Yeah !

I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah with you yeah yeah

I got to get away

I want to get away (4x)

Yeah

I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah with you yeah yeah

Girl I got to get away

I want to get away (4x)

Yeah

I want to get away

I want to fly away

Yeah with you

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Blowing in the Wind - Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down,

before you call him a man?

How many seas must a white dove sail,

before she sleeps in the sand?

And how many times must a cannon ball fly,

before they're forever banned?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,

the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist,

before it is washed to the sea?

How many years can some people exist,

before they're allowed to be free?

And 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 sees the sky?

And how many ears must one man have,

before he can hear people cry ?

And how many deaths will it take till we know,

that too many people have died?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,

the answer is blowing in the wind.

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,

the answer is blowing in the wind.

These are not rocks

They are the bulldozed

headstones of our forefathers

People say

Palestine made me political

I think it made me human

Free Palestine

is not a keychain

in your back pocket

From my rooftop

I can see an Israeli sunbathing

on the balcony my grandfather built

Tell a refugee in Bourj el-Barajneh

that pragmatism is the reason

she will not return

Adam- Haza Ana ( This is Me)

هذا انا ما اقدر اكون غيري انا

haza ana, ma agdar akoun, gheeri ana

this is me, I can't be someone else but me

انا الربيع انا الخريف امشي بخيالي مع كل طيف

I'm the spring, I'm the autumn, I walk with my shadow with every image\shadow

ارسم حروفي دمع القلوب ضاعت حياتي بين الدروب

arsom 7ourofi, dam3 el-2oloub, d'a3et 7ayati, been el-doroub

I draw my letters, heart's tears, my life has lost between the ways

هذا انا كلي انا ما اقدر اكون غيري انا

Johnny Cash - "God's Gonna Cut You Down"

You can run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Go tell that long tongue liar

Go and tell that midnight rider

Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Well my goodness gracious let me tell you the news

My head's been wet with the midnight dew

I've been down on bended knee talkin' to the man from Galilee

He spoke to me in the voice so sweet

I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet

He called my name and my heart stood still

When he said, "John go do My will!"

Go tell that long tongue liar

Go and tell that midnight rider

Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

You can run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand

Workin' in the dark against your fellow man

But as sure as God made black and white

What's done in the dark will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Run on for a long time

Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Go tell that long tongue liar

Go and tell that midnight rider

Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down

Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down

In light of America's immanent desire to cause war with Iran...

Jackson Browne - Lives In The Balance

I've been waiting for something to happen

For a week or a month or a year

With the blood in the ink of the headlines

And the sound of the crowd in my ear

You might ask what it takes to remember

When you know that you've seen it before

Where a government lies to a people

And a country is drifting to war

And there's a shadow on the faces

Of the men who send the guns

To the wars that are fought in places

Where their business interest runs

On the radio talk shows and the t.v.

You hear one thing again and again

How the u.s.a. stands for freedom

And we come to the aid of a friend

But who are the ones that we call our friends--

These governments killing their own?

Or the people who finally can't take any more

And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone

There are lives in the balance

There are people under fire

There are children at the cannons

And there is blood on the wire

There's a shadow on the faces

Of the men who fan the flames

Of the wars that are fought in places

Where we can't even say the names

They sell us the president the same way

They sell us our clothes and our cars

They sell us every thing from youth to religion

The same time they sell us our wars

I want to know who the men in the shadows are

I want to hear somebody asking them why

They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are

But they're never the ones to fight or to die

And there are lives in the balance

There are people under fire

There are children at the cannons

And there is blood on the wire

Metallica Lyrics:

...And Justice for All

Halls of Justice Painted Green

Money Talking

Power Wolves Beset Your Door

Hear Them Stalking

Soon You'll Please Their Appetite

They Devour

Hammer of Justice Crushes You

Overpower

The Ultimate in Vanity

Exploiting Their Supremacy

I Can't Believe the Things You Say

I Can't Believe

I Can't Believe the Price You Pay

Nothing Can Save You

Justice Is Lost

Justice Is Raped

Justice Is Gone

Pulling Your Strings

Justice Is Done

Seeking No Truth

Winning Is All

Find it So Grim

So True

So Real

Apathy Their Stepping Stone

So Unfeeling

Hidden Deep Animosity

So Deceiving

Through Your Eyes Their Light Burns

Hoping to Find

Inquisition Sinking You

With Prying Minds

The Ultimate in Vanity

Exploiting Their Supremacy

I Can't Believe the Things You Say

I Can't Believe

I Can't Believe the Price You Pay

Nothing Can Save You

Justice Is Lost

Justice Is Raped

Justice Is Gone

Pulling Your Strings

Justice Is Done

Seeking No Truth

Winning Is All

Find it So Grim

So True

So Real

Lady Justice Has Been Raped

Truth Assassin

Rolls of Red Tape Seal Your Lips

Now You're Done in

Their Money Tips Her Scales Again

Make Your Deal

Just What Is Truth? I Cannot Tell

Cannot Feel

The Ultimate in Vanity

Exploiting Their Supremacy

I Can't Believe the Things You Say

I Can't Believe

I Can't Believe the Price We Pay

Nothing Can Save Us

Justice Is Lost

Justice Is Raped

Justice Is Gone

Pulling Your Strings

Justice Is Done

Seeking No Truth

Winning Is All

Find it So Grim

So True

So Real

Seeking No Truth

Winning Is All

Find it So Grim

So True

So Real

Eye Of The Beholder

Do You See What I See?

Truth Is an Offense

Your Silence for Your Confidence

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Doors Are Slamming Shut

Limit Your Imagination, Keep You Where They must

Do You Feel What I Feel?

Bittering Distress

Who Decides What You Express

Do You Take What I Take?

Endurance Is the Word

Moving Back Instead of Forward Seems to Me Absurd

Doesn't Matter What You See

Or into it What You Read

You Can Do it Your Own Way

If It's Done Just How I Say

Independence Limited

Freedom of Choice

Choice Is Made for You My Friend

Freedom of Speech

Speech Is Words That They Will Bend

Freedom with Their Exception

Do You Fear What I Fear?

Living Properly

Truths to You Are Lies to Me

Do You Choose What I Choose?

More Alternatives

Energy Derives from Both the plus and negative

Do You Need What I Need?

Boundaries Overthrown

Look Inside to Each His Own

Do You Trust What I Trust?

Me, Myself and I

Penetrate the Smoke Screen I See Through the Selfish Lie

Doesn't Matter What You See

Or into it What You Read

You Can Do it Your Own Way

If It's Done Just How I Say

Independence Limited

Freedom of Choice

Choice Is Made for You My Friend

Freedom of Speech

Speech Is Words That They Will Bend

Freedom with Their Exception

Do You Know What I Know?

Your Money And Your Wealth

Your Silence Just to Hear Your Self

Do You Want What I Want?

Desire Not a Thing

I Hunger after Independence Lengthen Freedom's Ring

Doesn't Matter What You See

Or into it What You Read

You Can Do it Your Own Way

If It's Done Just How I Say

Independence Limited

Freedom of Choice

Choice Is Made for You My Friend

Freedom of Speech

Speech Is Words That They Will Bend

Freedom no longer frees you

Doesn't Matter What You See

Or into it What You Read

You Can Do it Your Own Way

If It's Done Just How I Say

One

I Can't Remember Anything

Can't Tell If this Is True or Dream

Deep down Inside I Feel to Scream

this Terrible Silence Stops Me

Now That the War Is Through with Me

I'm Waking up I Can Not See

That There's Not Much Left of Me

Nothing Is Real but Pain Now

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death

Oh Please God,wake Me

Back in the Womb its Much Too Real

in Pumps Life That I must Feel

but Can't Look Forward to Reveal

Look to the Time When I'll Live

Fed Through the Tube That Sticks in Me

Just like a Wartime Novelty

Tied to Machines That Make Me Be

Cut this Life off from Me

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death

Oh Please God,wake Me

Now the World Is Gone I'm Just One

Oh God,help Me Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death

Oh Please God Help Me

Darkness

Imprisoning Me

All That I See

Absolute Horror

I Cannot Live

I Cannot Die

Trapped in Myself

Body My Holding Cell

Landmine

Has Taken My Sight

Taken My Speech

Taken My Hearing

Taken My Arms

Taken My Legs

Taken My Soul

Left Me with Life in Hell
