    Default Favouritest Lyrics Thread

    We've had a lot of music threads recently, so let's have another , but involving lyrics. This is my fav ('Life On Mars?' by David Bowie:

    It's a God-awful small affair
    To the girl with the mousy hair
    But her mummy is yelling "No"
    And her daddy has told her to go
    But her friend is nowhere to be seen
    Now she walks through her sunken dream
    To the seat with the clearest view
    And she's hooked to the silver screen
    But the film is a saddening bore
    For she's lived it ten times or more
    She could spit in the eyes of fools
    As they ask her to focus on

    Sailors fighting in the dance hall
    Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
    It's the freakiest show
    Take a look at the Lawman
    Beating up the wrong guy
    Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
    He's in the best selling show
    Is there life on Mars?

    It's on America's tortured brow
    That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
    An' now the workers have struck for fame
    'Cos Lennon's on sale again
    See the mice in their million hordes
    From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
    Rule Britannia is out of bounds
    To my Mother, my dog, and clowns
    But the film is a saddening bore
    'Cos I wrote it ten times or more
    It's about to be writ again
    As I ask you to focus on

    Sailors fighting in the dance hall
    Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
    It's the freakiest show
    Take a look at the Lawman
    Beating up the wrong guy
    Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
    He's in the best selling show
    Is there life on Mars?
    It's about a lonely girl who is forced to see a film ten times or more because she's got nothing else to do (1st chrous), and a writer of a film (2nd chorus after the verse) who's had to write the same script ten times or more for some bizarre reason. Apparently, 'the girl with the mousy hair' is David Bowie's anima, hence the similarity of the two choruses. The lyrics are deliberate bizarre to give an element of the surreal - my favourite lines are:
    'Take a look at the Lawman
    Beating up the wrong guy
    Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
    '
    It's a good metaphor for the judicial system, unless it's meant to be taken seriously? :wink:

    North & South of the River - U2

    I want to reach out over the lough
    And feel your hand across the water
    Walk with you along an unapproved road
    Not looking over my shoulder
    I want to see
    I want to hear
    To understand your fears
    But we're north and south of the river

    I've been doing it wrong
    all of my life
    This holy town has turned me over
    A young man running from what he didn't understand
    As the wind from the lough just blew colder and colder

    There was a badness that had its way
    But love was not lost
    Love will have its way
    North and south of the river
    North and south of the river

    Can we stop playing these old tattoos?
    Darling I don't have the answer
    I want to meet you where you are
    I don't need you to surrender
    There is no feeling so alone
    as when the one you're hurting is your own
    North and south of the river...

    Some high ground is not worth taking
    Some connections are not worth making
    There's an old church bell no longer ringing
    And some old songs not worth singing
    (some high ground is not worth taking)
    North and south of the river
    North and south of the river

    go to my myspace and it is song #9
    or http://bekmail.free.fr/U2%20-%20Nort...he%20River.mp3
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    Default The Weakerthans - Everything Must Go

    Garage Sale. Saturday. I need to pay
    my heart's outstanding bills.
    A cracked-up compass and a pocket watch, some plastic daffodils.
    The cutlery and coffee cups I stole
    from all-night restaurants, a sense of wonder (only slightly used),
    a year or two to haunt you in the dark.

    For a phone call from far away
    with a "Hi, how are you today"
    and a sign recovery comes to the broken ones.

    A wage-slave forty-hour work week (weighs
    a thousand kilograms, so bend your knees)
    comes with a free fake smile for all your dumb demands,
    the cordless razor that my father bought when I turned 17,
    a puke-green sofa
    and the outline to a complicated dream of dignity.

    For a laugh too loud and too long
    For a place where awkward belongs
    And a sign recovery comes to the broken ones...
    Or best offer.
    THE BEARD HEARD HIS MOVEMENT AND MADE AN ATTACK RUN BUT DID NOT ACTUALLY ATTACK HIM

    and finally some real lyrics I truly like...

    The Grateful Dead- Throwing Stones

    streaming live (click track 19 (gotta scroll down in the flash window))

    download different version

    Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
    Dizzy with eternity.
    Paint it with a skin of sky, brush in some clouds and sea
    Call it home for you and me.
    A peaceful place or so it looks from space
    A closer look reveals the human race.
    Full of hope, full of grace, is the human face.
    But afraid, we may lay our home to waste.
    Theres a fear down here we cant forget
    hasnt got a name just yet
    Always awake, always around
    singing ashes, ashes all fall down.
    Now watch as the ball revolves and the nighttime falls
    And again the hunt begins and again the bloodwind calls
    By and by again, the morning sun will rise
    But the darkness never goes from some mens eyes.
    It strolls the sidewalks and it rolls the streets
    Staking turf, dividing up meat.
    Nightmare spook, piece of heat, it's you and me, you and me.
    Click, flashblade in ghetto night.
    rudies looking for a fight.
    Rat cat alley roll them bones.
    need that cash to feed that jones
    And the politicians throwing stones
    Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.
    Commissars and pin-striped bosses role the dice
    Any way they fall guess who gets to pay the price.
    Money green or proletarian gray, selling guns instead of food today.
    So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
    While the politicians throwing stones
    Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.
    Heartless powers try to tell us what to think
    If the spirits sleeping, then the flesh is ink.
    Historys page, it is thusly carved in stone
    The futures here, we are it, we are on our own.
    If the game is lost then were all the same
    No one left to place or take the blame.
    We will leave this place an empty stone
    Or this shinning ball of blue we can call our home
    So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
    While the politicians are throwing stones
    Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.
    Shipping powders back and forth
    Singing black goes south while white comes north
    And the whole world full of petty wars
    Singing I got mine and you got yours.
    And the current fashions set the pace.
    Lose your step, fall out of grace.
    And the radical he rant and rage,
    singing someone got to turn the page
    And the rich man in his summer home,
    Singing just leave well enough alone
    But his pants are down, his covers blown
    And the politicians are throwing stones
    So the kids they dance they shake their bones
    Cause its all too clear were on our own
    Singin ashes, ashes all fall down.
    Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
    Its dizzying, the possibilities.
    ashes, ashes all fall down.

    While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand
    While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land
    While there's a wind and the stars and the rainbow
    'Till the mountains crumble into the plain
    Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
    Tread that fine line
    Oh we'll keep on tryin yeah
    Just passing our time
    While we live according to race, colour or creed
    While we rule by blind madness and pure greed
    Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
    Through the eons, and on and on
    Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
    We'll tread that fine line
    Oh oh we'll keep on tryin'
    'Till the end of time
    'Till the end of time
    Through the sorrow all through our splendour
    Don't take offence at my innuendo
    You can be anything you want to be
    Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could
    ever be
    Be free with your tempo be free be free
    Surrender your ego be free be free to yourself
    Oooh ooh
    If there's a God or any kind of justice under the sky
    If there's a point if there's a reason to live or die
    If there's an answer to the questions we feel born to ask
    Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask
    Oh yes we'll keep on trying
    Hey tread that fine line
    Yeah we'll keep on smiling yeah (yeah yeah)
    And whatever will be will be
    We'll keep on trying
    We'll just keep on trying
    'Till the end of time
    'Till the end of time
    'Till the end of time

    First eliminate every possible source of error. Thence success is inevitable.

    It reminds me of many an evening in London --


    DOWNTOWN
    Tony Hatch
    - as recorded in 1964 by Petula Clark

    When you're alone and life is making you lonely
    You can always go - downtown
    When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
    Seems to help, I know - downtown
    Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
    Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
    How can you lose?

    The lights are much brighter there
    You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
    So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
    Downtown - no finer place, for sure
    Downtown - everything's waiting for you

    Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
    There are movie shows - downtown
    Maybe you know some little places to go to
    Where they never close - downtown
    Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
    You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
    Happy again

    The lights are much brighter there
    You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
    So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
    Downtown - waiting for you tonight
    Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

    ------ instrumental break ------

    And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
    Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
    Guide them along

    So maybe I'll see you there
    We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
    So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
    Downtown - don't wait a minute more
    Downtown - everything's waiting for you

    Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...

    A horse with no name
    America

    On the first part of the journey
    I was looking at all the life
    There were plants and birds and rocks and things
    There was sand and hills and rings
    The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
    And the sky with no clouds
    The heat was hot and the ground was dry
    But the air was full of sound

    I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
    It felt good to be out of the rain
    In the desert you can remember your name
    'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
    La, la ...

    After two days in the desert sun
    My skin began to turn red
    After three days in the desert fun
    I was looking at a river bed
    And the story it told of a river that flowed
    Made me sad to think it was dead

    You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
    It felt good to be out of the rain
    In the desert you can remember your name
    'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
    La, la ...

    After nine days I let the horse run free
    'Cause the desert had turned to sea
    There were plants and birds and rocks and things
    there was sand and hills and rings
    The ocean is a desert with it's life underground
    And a perfect disguise above
    Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
    But the humans will give no love

    You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
    It felt good to be out of the rain
    In the desert you can remember your name
    'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
    La, la ...

    "Point Me At The Sky" - Pink Floyd

    Hey, Eugene,
    This is Henry McClean
    And I've finished my beautiful flying machine
    And I'm ringing to say
    That I'm leaving and maybe
    You'd like to fly with me
    And hide with me, baby

    Isn't it strange
    How little we change
    Isn't it sad we're insane
    Playing the games that we know and in tears
    The games we've been playing for thousands and thousands and ....

    Pointing to the cosmic glider
    "Pull this plastic glider higher
    Light the fuse and stand right back"
    He cried "This is my last good-bye."

    Point me at the sky and tell it fly
    Point me at the sky and tell it fly
    Point me at the sky and tell it fly

    And if you survive till two thousand and five
    I hope you're exceedingly thin
    For if you are stout you will have to breathe out
    While the people around you breathe in

    People pressing on might say
    It's something that I hate to say
    I'm slipping down to eat the ground
    A little refuge on my brain

    Point me at the sky and tell it fly
    Point me at the sky and tell it fly
    Point me at the sky and tell it fly

    And all we've got to say to you is good-bye
    It's time to go, better run and get your bags, it's good-bye
    Nobody cry, it's good-bye
    Crash, crash, crash, crash, good-bye...

    I Walk The Line Lyrics - Johnny Cash


    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    I keep my eyes wide open all the time
    I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    I find it very, very easy to be true
    I find myself alone when each day is through
    Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    As sure as night is dark and day is light
    I keep you on my mind both day and night
    And happiness I've known proves that it's right
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    You've got a way to keep me on your side
    You give me cause for love that I can't hide
    For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    I keep my eyes wide open all the time
    I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    2pac - Keep ya head up

    Little somethin for my godson Elijah and a little girl named Corrine

    Verse One:

    Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
    I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots
    I give a holler to my sisters on welfare
    Tupac cares, if don't nobody else care
    And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot
    When you come around the block brothers clown a lot
    But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up
    Forgive but don't forget, girl keep your head up
    And when he tells you you ain't nuttin don't believe him
    And if he can't learn to love you you should leave him
    Cause sista you don't need him
    And I ain't tryin to gas ya up, I just call em how I see em
    You know it makes me unhappy (what's that)
    When brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be a pappy
    And since we all came from a woman
    Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
    I wonder why we take from our women
    Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
    I think it's time to kill for our women
    Time to heal our women, be real to our women
    And if we don't we'll have a race of babies
    That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
    And since a man can't make one
    He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
    So will the real men get up
    I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up

    Chorus

    Ooooh child things are gonna get easier
    Ooooh child things are gonna get brighter

    Ooooh child things are gonna get easier
    Ooooh child things are gonna get brighter

    Verse Two:

    Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing ta me
    He had me feelin like black was tha thing to be
    And suddenly tha ghetto didn't seem so tough
    And though we had it rough, we always had enough
    I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rules
    Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two
    And I realize momma really paid the price
    She nearly gave her life, to raise me right
    And all I had ta give her was my pipe dream
    Of how I'd rock the mic, and make it to tha bright screen
    I'm tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents
    It's hard to be legit and still pay tha rent
    And in the end it seems I'm headin for tha pen
    I try and find my friends, but they're blowin in the wind
    Last night my buddy lost his whole family
    It's gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity
    It seems tha rain'll never let up
    I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin wet up
    You know it's funny when it rains and pours
    They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor
    They say there ain't no hope for the youth and the truth is
    there ain't no hope for tha future
    And then they wonder why we crazy
    I blame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby
    We ain't meant to survive, cause it's a setup
    And even though you're fed up
    Huh, ya got to keep your head up

    Chorus

    Verse Three:

    And uhh
    To all the ladies havin babies on they own
    I know it's kinda rough and you're feelin all alone
    Daddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesome
    Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want em
    Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure
    And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more
    Cause ain't nuttin worse than when your son
    wants to kno why his daddy don't love him no mo'
    You can't complain you was dealt this
    hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless
    Because there's too many things for you to deal with
    Dying inside, but outside you're looking fearless
    While tears, is rollin down your cheeks
    Ya steady hopin things don't all down this week
    Cause if it did, you couldn't take it, and don't blame me
    I was given this world I didn't make it
    And now my son's getten older and older and cold
    From havin the world on his shoulders
    While the rich kids is drivin Benz
    I'm still tryin to hold on to survivin friends
    And it's crazy, it seems it'll never let up, but
    please... you got to keep your head up
    IEI - the nasty kind...

    Close to You - Carpenters

    Why do birds suddenly appear
    Every time you are near?
    Just like me, they long to be
    Close to you.

    Why do stars fall down from the sky
    Every time you walk by?
    Just like me, they long to be
    Close to you.

    On the day that you were born
    The angels got together
    And decided to create a dream come true
    So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
    And starlight in your eyes of blue.

    That is why all the girls in town
    Follow you all around.
    Just like me, they long to be
    Close to you.

    Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
    Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
    Hahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
    Lahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.

    My favorite song of ALL TIME

    Oasis
    Don't Go Away

    Cold and frosty morning,
    Theres not a lot to say,
    About the things caught in my mind,
    And as the day was dawning,
    My plane flew away,
    With all the things caught in my mind,

    I dont wanna be there when your, coming down,
    I dont wanna be there when you hit the ground,

    So dont go away,
    Say what you say,
    Say that youll stay,
    Forever and a day,
    In the time of my life,
    Cos I need more time,
    Yes I need more time just to make things right

    Damn my situation and the games I have to play,
    With all the things caught in my mind,
    Damn my education I cant find the words to say,
    With all the things caught in my mind,
    I dont wanna be there when your, coming down,
    I dont wanna be there when you hit the ground,

    So dont go away,
    Say what you say,
    Say that youll stay,
    Forever and a day,
    In the time of my life,
    Cos I need more time,
    Yes I need more time just to make things right.

    Me and you whats going on,
    All we seem to know is how to show,
    The feelings that I wrote.

    So dont go away,
    Say what you say,
    Say that youll stay,
    Forever and a day,
    In the time of my life,
    Cos I need more time,
    Yes I need more time just to make things right.

    And dont go away,
    Say what you say,
    Say that youll stay,
    Forever and a day,
    In the time of my life,
    Cos I need more time,
    Yes I need more time just to make things right,

    Yes I need more time just to make things right,
    Yes I need more time just to make things right,
    So dont go away.

    Don't Go Away was my favorite song for a long time even though I couldn't really understand the feelings behind the lyrics. It was as if I was listening to it in preparation for something, for something that I knew was coming. I listened to it all those thousands of times because something deep down inside told me that I was going to feel that way one day.

    When I finally did it was a lot more difficult than I ever imagined it to be. Things seem a lot more simple when they're mere lyrics in a song. Yet it turned out to be one of the defining moments of my life that completely changed its direction. Now that I do truly understand the song...when I listen to it I feel an odd sense of completion. A sense that something has been finished. Truly one of the most important songs I will ever hear.

    [Sir Samuel]
    ou pé pa sav', ki gen mwen aimé

    [Leeroy Kesiah]
    illico j'mets le turbo, j'adore quand tu m'dis :
    "Leeroy, c'est toi l'plus beau, t’es celui qu'j'préfère,
    celui qui m' fait grimper au rideau, à n'importe quelle heure et
    dans n'importe quel studio, tout le monde sait qu'tu connais
    tout les ses-po, donc on t'aime trop
    on sait tous qu'avec toi, on passera des moments très chauds"

    homme de zouk, homme de soukous, malhonnête ce coup-ci,
    si j'ai pas elle, j'ai sa cousine, elle est coup-çi, coup-ça,
    elle a grossit mais j'mettrai un coup à ça !

    Hmm, good songs most people! . I like the ones with lots of visual imagery and ones that have a view on life which is sad or slightly reassuring (sometimes because they're sad ).

    My fav songs out of those Smilingeyes's one, Expat's 'Horse with no name' and Bionicgoat's Grateful Dead one - brilliant lyrics.

    This is my favourite Pink Floyd song - 'Us And Them':

    Us and Them
    And after all we're only ordinary men
    Me, and you
    God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
    Forward he cried from the rear
    and the front rank died
    And the General sat, as the lines on the map
    moved from side to side
    Black and Blue
    And who knows which is which and who is who
    Up and Down
    And in the end it's only round and round and round
    Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
    the poster bearer cried
    Listen son, said the man with the gun
    There's room for you inside
    Down and Out
    It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
    With, without
    And who'll deny that's what the fightings all about
    Get out of the way, it's a busy day
    And I've got things on my mind
    For want of the price of tea and a slice
    The old man died
    but I also like 'Wish You Were Here':

    So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
    blue skies from pain.
    Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
    A smile from a veil?
    Do you think you can tell?
    And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
    Hot ashes for trees?
    Hot air for a cool breeze?
    Cold comfort for change?
    And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
    How I wish, how I wish you were here.
    We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
    Running over the same old ground.
    What have we found? The same old fears.
    Wish you were here.
    My fav Oasis song is 'Cast No Shadow':
    Here's a thought for every man
    Who tries to understand what is in his hands
    He walks along the open road of Love & Life
    surviving if he can

    Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say
    Chained to all the places that he never wished to say
    Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say
    and as faced the sun he cast no shadow

    As they took his soul they stole his pride
    As they took his soul they stole his pride
    As they took his soul they stole his pride

    Here's a thought for every man
    Who tries to understand what is in his hands
    He walks along the open road of Love & Life
    surviving if he can

    Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say
    Chained to all the places that he never wished to say
    Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say
    and as faced the sun he cast no shadow

    As they took his soul they stole his pride
    As they took his soul they stole his pride
    As they took his soul they stole his pride

    And as he faced the sun he cast no shadow
    I also like...nah, that's too many! :wink:

    I remember I used it to train during the winter up the hills


    Also Cannibal Corpse - Eintrails Ripped from a Virgin's Cunt

    Alive alone now that they've gone dead but unburied
    I've seen it unfold, terrible scenes of agony
    Eyes in the darkness
    Echoing their madness

    The sights that have passed before them
    Watching as though it has never happened
    Now I only listen to what is not spoken

    Murder, hatred
    Anger, Savage
    Killings I have caused
    more than can be counted
    orgies of sadism
    And sexual perversion
    Virgin
    Tied to my mattress
    Legs spread wide
    Ruptured bowel, yanked
    From her insides
    Devirginized with my knife
    Internally bleeding
    Vagina, secreting
    her blood-wet pussy
    I am eating
    on her guts I am feeding
    Mutilated with a machete
    I fucked her dead body
    The first and last
    Your life's only romance
    My knife's jammed in your ass
    As you die you orgasm

    Pass on to the dead
    Nerve trembling convulsions
    No longer looking human

    I never see them, but I know they're there
    Locked in my subconcious
    Obscene memories I thought I'd forgotten
    Haunting unrealities
    Tear at me
    Hold her arms
    Her mouth taped shut
    Screams unheard
    Out pour her guts

    Layers of flesh peeling away
    Languish in your own decay
    descriptions of my killings
    bone chilling

    Terror, tear, her
    Virgin cunt

    Virgins are my victims
    Their tight interiors I explore
    Sharpened utensils of torture
    Now inserted inside of her
    Sex organs extracted for eating
    On her liver I am gnawing

    Forbidden lust for guts
    Ripped from her cunt
    Tears of blood cry down her thigh

    I ram my fist inside her hole
    From her crotch piss now flows
    Rectum filled with shit
    I fucked her emptied body
    Until she became stiff

    Well, I liked the Rage Against The Machine lyrics, with all the 'fuck you, I won't do what you tell me', but the second one is something else...

    In an effort to restore karma, or something - 'Two Creatures' by The Tears:

    This country looks like one big car park
    The winters are so very long
    And everybody wonders where the light has gone

    And Europe has its moving statelines
    But Africa has winter sun
    And you and me we're just two creatures on the run

    And we'll go where the crowds don't stare
    And no one laughs at what we wear
    The phone might ring
    The rain might sting oh but we don't care

    We'll fly over the endless ocean
    We're heading for the winter sun
    'Cause you and me we're just two creatures on the run

    And Europe has its moving statelines
    But Africa has winter sunshine
    And you and me we're just two creatures on the run

    And we'll go where the crowds don't stare
    And no one hates us for our hair
    The phone might ring
    The rain might sting oh but we don't care

    We'll fly over the endless ocean
    We're heading for the winter sun
    'Cause you and me we're just two creatures on the run

    America's our supermarket
    In India we'll take some stopping
    'Cause you and me we're just two creatures on the run

    In Asia we can mend our breakdown
    'Cause you and me we must escape now
    And you and me we're just two creatures on the run
    You and me we're just two creatures on the run
    You and me we're just two creatures on the run
    You and me we're just two creatures on the run

    Cannibal Corpse - Vomited Anal Tract

    Oral eruption
    Rectal extroversion...

    Your vagus implodes, as nausea strikes
    Savaging your body in terminal retch
    Violent spasms and decaying enzymes
    Engulf your throat as you belch

    Intestinal disturbance, your ileum turns inside-out
    Your duodenum is thrust up towards your mouth
    Your pancreas excretes stale septic pus
    Your whole digestive system is now a sticky mush

    Rectal vomit in your thorax
    Retch your anal tract

    Liquidized oesophagus mixes with bloodied excretion
    As you pathetically gasp for breath
    The stench of hot faeces scorch your nose
    As you violently vomit to death

    Your intestines are rising, up towards your throat
    Stale bile escaping through your bloodied nose
    Your colon digested into acidic slush
    Your tongue gargling on your dislocated anus

    My fav songs out of those Smilingeyes's one, Expat's 'Horse with no name' and Bionicgoat's Grateful Dead one - brilliant lyrics.

    This is my favourite Pink Floyd song - 'Us And Them':
    Hell yeah... so many phenomanal Pink Floyd songs! Us and Them is one of my favorites too :wink: Another one I love is...

    Fearless
    You say the hill's too steep to climb,
    Climb it!
    You say you'd like to see me try,
    Climb it!
    You pick the place and I'll choose the time
    And I'll climb
    The hill in my own way
    just wait a while, for the right day
    And as I rise above the treeline and the clouds
    I look down hear the sound of the things you said today
    Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling
    Emotionless the magistrate turns 'round, frowning
    and who's the fool who wears the crown
    Go down in your own way
    And everyday is the right day
    And as you rise above the fearlines in the frown
    You look down
    Hear the sound of the faces in the crowd
    The last song off The Final Cut is just amazing IMO too

    Two Suns in the Sunset
    In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
    Sinking behind bridges in the road
    And I think of all the good things
    That we have left undone
    And I suffer premonitions
    Confirm suspicions
    Of the holocaust to come.

    The rusty wire that holds the cork
    That keeps the anger in
    Gives way
    And suddenly it's day again.
    The sun is in the east
    Even though the day is done.
    Two suns in the sunset
    Hmmmmmmmmmm
    Could be the human race is run.

    Like the moment when the brakes lock
    And you slide towards the big truck
    "Oh no!"
    "[scream] Daddy, Daddy!"
    You stretch the frozen moments with your fear.
    And you'll never hear their voices
    And you'll never see their faces
    You have no recourse to the law anymore.

    And as the windshield melts
    My tears evaporate
    Leaving only charcoal to defend.
    Finally I understand the feelings of the few.
    Ashes and diamonds
    Foe and friend
    We were all equal in the end.

    "...and now the weather. Tomorrow will be cloudy with scattered showers
    spreading from the east ... with an expected high of 4000 degrees
    Celsius"
    And I'll give you one more Dead song...
    click track 3

    Franklin's Tower
    In another times forgotten space
    Your eyes looked from your mother's face
    Wallflower seed on the sand and stone
    May the four winds blow you safely home.

    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew

    I'll tell you where the four winds dwell
    In Franklin's tower there hangs a bell
    It can ring, turn night to day
    It can ring like fire when you loose your way.

    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew

    God save the child that rings that bell
    It may have one good ring, baby, you can't tell
    One watch by night, one watch by day
    If you get confused listen to the music play.

    (instrumental)

    Some come to laugh their past away
    Some come to make it just one more day
    Whichever way your pleasure tends
    If you plant ice you're gonna harvest the wind.

    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew

    In Franklin's tower the four winds sleep
    Like four lean hounds the lighthouse keep
    Wildflower seed on the sand and wind
    May the four winds blow you home again.

    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    You'd better roll away the dew

    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    Roll away the dew
    You'd better roll away the dew - roll away.

    Ok that's enough I think

    Bizarre - Gospel Weed Song

    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Two Joints- Sublime

    (she was living in a single room with three other individuals.
    One of them was a male and the other two, well, the other two were females.
    God only know what they were up to in there.
    And furthermore susan, I wouldnt be the least bit surprised to learn that all four of them
    Habitually smoke marijuana cigarettes... reefers)

    I smoke two joints in the morning.
    I smoke two joints at night.
    I smoke two joints in the afternoon, it makes me feel alright
    I smoke two joints in time of peace, and two in time of war
    I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints,
    And then I smoke two more

    Smoked cigarettes til the day she died
    Toke a big spliff of some good sensimillia
    Smoked cigarettes til the day she died
    Toke a big spliff of some good sensamill...
    Easy-e were ya ever caught slippin? hell no!

    Daddy he once told me son you be hard workin man
    And momma she once told me son you do the best you can
    But, then one day I met a man who came to me and said
    Hard work good, and hard work fine but first take care of head

    (guitar solo)

    Whoa, rock me tonight,
    Whoa-oh, jah sake,
    Whoa-ohh

    Eminem - I'm Shady

    I got mushrooms I got acid
    I got tabs and asprin tablets
    I'm your brother when you need
    Some good weed to set you free
    You know me, I'm your friend when you need a minithin
    I'M SHADY!

    Cassandra Gemini

    It's a half-hour long (true) story about a lonely guy who has little idea about who he is or who is family is. He was conceived through a rap, with some sort of diseases or deformaties, and spends his whole life looking for his sister and/or mother to learn about where he came from. He eventually snaps and looses his mind, rapping and killing women the way he thinks his mother was rapped, and then he falls deeper into depression believing there is "no light" and saying that his whole life sprouts a "lachramyl cloud".
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    Wow, I totally did not see TMV as being that trippy. Good album, though.

    What do you mean? LSD? I think they're pretty much known as an LSD band...

    [row fontsize=10:9641477d0a]Chiquitita, tell me whats wrong
    You're enchained by your own sorrow
    In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
    How I hate to see you like this
    There is no way you can deny it
    I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

    Chiquitita, tell me the truth
    I'm a shoulder you can cry on
    Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
    You were always sure of yourself
    Now I see you've broken a feather
    I hope we can patch it up together

    Chiquitita, you and I know
    How the heartaches come and they go and the scars theyre leaving
    You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
    You will have no time for grieving
    Chiquitita, you and I cry
    But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
    Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, chiquitita
    Try once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, chiquitita

    So the walls came tumbling down
    And your loves a blown out candle
    All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
    Chiquitita, tell me the truth
    There is no way you can deny it
    I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

    Chiquitita, you and I know
    How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
    You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
    You will have no time for grieving
    Chiquitita, you and I cry
    But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
    Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, chiquitita
    Try once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, chiquitita
    Try once more like you did before
    Sing a new song, chiquitita
    [col:9641477d0a]Have you ever felt some kind of emptiness inside
    You will never measure up to those people you
    Must be strong can't show them that you're weak

    Have you ever told someone
    Something that's far from the truth
    Let them know that you're okay
    Just to make them stop all the wondering
    And questions they may have

    I'm okay I really am now
    Just needed some time to figure things out
    Not telling lies I'll be honest with you
    Still we don't know what's yet to come

    Have you ever seen your face
    In a mirror there's a smile
    But inside you're just a mess
    You feel far from good
    Need to hide 'cos they'd never understand

    Have you ever had this wish
    Of being somewhere else
    To let go of your disguise
    All your worries too
    And from that moment
    Then you see things clear

    I'm okay I really am now
    Just needed some time to figure things out
    Not telling lies I'll be honest with you
    Still we don't know what's yet to come

    I'm okay I really am now
    Just needed some time to figure things out
    Not telling lies I'll be honest with you
    Still we don't know what's yet to come

    Are you waiting for that day
    When your pain will disappear
    When you'll know that it's not true
    What they say about you
    You couldn't care less about the things surrounding you
    Ignoring all the voices from now on

    I'm okay I really am now
    Just needed some time to figure things out
    Not telling lies I'll be honest with you
    Still we don't know what's yet to come

    I'm okay I really am now
    Just needed some time to figure things out
    Not telling lies I'll be honest with you
    Still we don't know what's yet to come

    Still we don't know what's yet to come
    Still we don't know what's yet to come
    [col:9641477d0a]Happiness is just a word to me
    And it might have meant a thing or two
    If I'd known the difference

    Emptiness, a lonely parody
    And my life, another smokin' gun
    A sign of my indifference

    Always keepin' safe inside
    Where no one ever had a chance
    To penetrate a break in

    Let me tell you some have tried
    But I would slam the door so tight
    That they could never get in

    Kept my cool under a lock and key
    And I never shed a tear
    Another sign of my condition

    Fear of love or bitter vanity
    That kept me on the run
    The main events of my confession

    I kept a chain upon my door
    That would shake the shame of Cain
    Into a blind submission

    The burning ghost without a name
    Was still calling all the same
    But I just wouldn't listen

    The longer I'd stall
    The further I'd crawl
    The further I'd crawl
    The harder I'd fall
    I was crawlin' into the fire
    The more that I saw
    The further I'd fall
    The further I'd fall
    The lower I'd crawl
    I kept fallin' into the fire
    Into the fire
    Into the fire

    Suddenly it occurred to me
    The reason for the run and hide
    Had totaled my existence

    Everything left on the other side
    Could never be much worse than this
    But could I go the distance

    I faced the door and all my shame
    Tearin' off each piece of chain
    Until they all were broken

    But no matter how I tried
    The other side was locked so tight
    That door it wouldn't open

    Gave it all that I got
    And started to knock
    Shouted for someone
    To open the lock
    I just gotta get through the door

    And the more that I knocked
    The hotter I got
    The hotter I got
    The harder I'd knock
    I just gotta break through the door

    Gotta knock a little harder
    Gotta knock a little harder
    Gotta knock a little harder
    Break through the door [/table:9641477d0a]

    Scanning life through the picture window

    Heaven forbid, she'll take anything
    But the freak, and his type, all for nothing
    He misses a step and cuts his hand, but
    Showing nothing, he swoops like a song
    She cries "Where have all Papa's heroes gone?"

    CHORUS

    All the way from Washington
    Her bread-winner begs off the bathroom floor
    "We live for just these twenty years
    Do we have to die for the fifty more have?"

    CHORUS
    All night

    Young American, young American, he wants the young American

    He wants the young American


    Do you remember, your President Nixon?
    Do you remember, the bills you have to pay
    Or even yesterday?

    Have you have been an un-American?
    Just you and your idol singing falsetto 'bout
    Leather, leather everywhere, and
    Not a myth left from the ghetto
    Well, well, well, would you carry a razor
    In case, just in case of depression?
    Sit on your hands on a bus of survivors
    Blushing at all the Afro-Sheilas
    Ain't that close to love?
    Well, ain't that poster love?
    Well, it ain't that Barbie doll
    Her heart's been broken just like you have

    CHORUS
    All night
    You want the young American
    Young American, young American, you want the young American
    All right
    My fav line is:
    Well, well, well, would you carry a razor
    In case, just in case of depression?
    but only cuz it sounds so good when he sings it!

    I love Smith's songs...

    drink up, baby, stay up all night
    the things you could do, you won't but you might
    the potential you'll be, that you'll never see
    the promises you'll only make

    drink up with me now and forget all about the pressure of days
    do what I say and I'll make you okay and drive them away
    the images stuck in your head

    people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
    that push and shove and won't bend to your will
    I'll keep them still

    drink up, baby, look at the stars
    I'll kiss you again between the bars
    where I'm seeing you
    there with your hands in the air, waiting to finally be caught

    drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
    keep you apart deep in my heart separate from the rest
    where I like you the best and keep the things you forgot

    the people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
    that push and shove and won't bend to your will
    I'll keep them still

    Shadow

    I Wanted to touch your back
    but the darkness just took you away
    untouched.
    It's so untouchable.

    Whose role is to wipe your eyes?
    because every angel takes your tears away
    untouched.
    It's so untouchable.

    Because I'm your shadow.
    Your trouble tears me double.
    Would you listen to me?
    before the night comes.

    your too close to realize.
    Too self-indulgent to hear.
    The little voice behind you.

    Don't leave me behind.

    My heart is aching.
    If you and me are both akin,
    you must feel something inside
    Don't kill me inside.

    Though I'm your shadow.
    I feel so miserable here to dangle.
    Would you look back at me?
    Before night comes.
    Before you recall solitude and stuff
    Before night comes
    Before things come apart

    I've always liked the happy-go-lucky lyrics of this song by Tool:

    Aenema

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

    Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
    Freaks

    Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
    The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
    Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
    Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

    Fret for your figure and
    Fret for your latte and
    Fret for your lawsuit and
    Fret for your hairpiece and
    Fret for your prozac and
    Fret for your pilot and
    Fret for your cable and
    Fret for your car.
    It's a
    Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
    Freaks

    Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
    The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
    Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
    Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

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

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

    Silly shit, stupid shit...

    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.

    Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
    Fuck all his clones.
    Fuck all those gun-toting
    Hip gangster wannabes.

    Learn to swim.

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

    Learn to swim.

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

    Learn to swim.

    Cuz 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 watch 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.
    It says LA, but of course it's applicable everywhere

    This is one of the few songs I like singing along to!

    Nick Cave - 'The Curse of Millhaven'

    I live in a town called Millhaven
    And it's small and it's mean and it's cold
    But if you come around just as the sun goes down
    You can watch the whole town turn to gold
    It's around about then that I used to go a-roaming
    Singing La la la la La la la lie
    All God's children they all gotta die
    My name is Loretta but I prefer Lottie
    I'm closing in on my fifteenth year
    And if you think you have seen a pair of eyes more green
    Then you sure didn't see them around here
    My hair is yellow and I'm always a-combing
    La la la la La la la lie
    Mama often told me we all got to die
    You must have heard about The Curse Of Millhaven
    How last Christmas Bill Blake's little boy didn't come home
    They found him next week in One Mile Creek
    His head bashed in and his pockets full of stones
    Well, just imagine all the wailing and moaning
    La la la la La la la lie
    Even little Billy Blake's boy, he had to die
    Then Professor O'Rye from Millhaven High
    Found nailed to his door his prize-winning terrier
    Then next day the old fool brought little Biko to school
    And we all had to watch as he buried her
    His eulogy to Biko had all the tears a-flowing
    La la la la La la la lie
    Even God's little creatures, they have to die
    Our little town fell into a state of shock
    A lot of people were saying things that made little sense
    Then the next thing you know the head of Handyman Joe
    Was found in the fountain of the Mayor's residence
    Foul play can really get a small town going
    La la la la La la la lie
    Even God's children all have to die
    Then, in a cruel twist of fate, old Mrs Colgate
    Was stabbed but the job was not complete
    The last thing she said before the cops pronounced her dead
    Was, "My killer is Loretta and she lives across the
    street!"
    Twenty cops burst through my door without even phoning
    La la la la La la la lie
    The young ones, the old ones, they all gotta die
    Yes, it is I, Lottie. The Curse Of Millhaven
    I've struck horror in the heart of this town
    Like my eyes ain't green and my hair ain't yellow
    It's more like the other way around
    I gotta pretty little mouth underneath all the foaming
    La la la la La la la lie
    Sooner or later we all gotta die
    Since I was no bigger than a weavil they've been saying I was
    evil
    That if "bad" was a boot that I'd fit it
    That I'm a wicked young lady, but I've been trying hard
    lately
    O fuck it! I'm a monster! I admit it!
    It makes me so mad my blood really starts a-going
    La la la la La la la lie
    Mama always told me that we all gotta die
    Yeah, I drowned the Blakey kid, stabbed Mrs. Colgate, I
    admit
    Did the handyman with his circular saw in his garden shed
    But I never crucified little Biko, that was two junior high
    school psychos
    Stinky Bohoon and his friend with the pumpkin-sized head
    I'll sing to the lot, now you got me going
    La la la la La la la lie
    All God's children have all gotta die
    There were all the others, all our sisters and brothers
    You assumed were accidents, best forgotten
    Recall the children who broke through the ice on Lake
    Tahoo?
    Everyone assumed the "Warning" signs had followed them to the
    bottom
    Well, they're underneath the house where I do quite a bit of
    stowing
    La la la la La la la lie
    Even twenty little children, they had to die
    And the fire of '91 that razed the Bella Vista slum
    There was the biggest shit-fight this country's ever seen
    Insurance companies ruined, land lords getting sued
    All cause of wee girl with a can of gasoline
    Those flames really roared when the wind started blowing
    La la la la La la la lie
    Rich man, poor man, all got to die
    Well I confessed to all these crimes and they put me on
    trial
    I was laughing when they took me away
    Off to the asylum in an old black Mariah
    It ain't home, but you know, it's fucking better than jail
    It ain't such bad old place to have a home in
    La la la la La la la lie
    All God's children they all gotta die
    Now I got shrinks that will not rest with their endless
    Rorschach tests
    I keep telling them they're out to get me
    They ask me if I feel remorse and I answer, "Why of course!
    There is so much more I could have done if they'd let me!"
    So it's Rorschach and Prozac and everything is groovy
    Singing La la la la La la la lie
    All God's children they all have to die
    La la la la La la la lie
    I'm happy as a lark and everything is fine
    Singing La la la la La la la lie
    Yeah, everything is groovy and everything is fine
    Singing La la la la La la la lie
    All God's children they gotta die

    So far, I really like Expat's choices of songs.
    A horse with no name & Downtown.

    Rose - Bette Midler
    Some say love it is a river
    that drowns the tender reed
    Some say love it is a razer
    that leaves your soul to bleed

    Some say love it is a hunger
    an endless aching need
    I say love it is a flower
    and you it's only seed

    It's the heart afraid of breaking
    that never learns to dance
    It's the dream afraid of waking
    that never takes the chance
    It's the one who won't be taken
    who cannot seem to give
    and the soul afraid of dying
    that never learns to live

    When the night has been too lonely
    and the road has been too long
    and you think that love is only
    for the lucky and the strong
    Just remember in the winter
    far beneath the bitter snows
    lies the seed
    that with the sun's love
    in the spring
    becomes the rose

    Kid Rock - Only God Knows Why.

    I've been sittin here
    Tryin to find myself
    I get behind myself
    I need to rewind myself
    Lookin for the payback
    Listen for the playback
    They say that every man bleeds just like me
    And I feel like number one
    Yet I'm last in line
    I watch my youngest son
    And it helps to pass the time
    I take too many pills it helps to ease the pain
    I made a couple of dollar bills, but still I feel the same
    Everybody knows my name
    They say it way out loud
    A lot of folks fuck with me
    It's hard to hang out in crowds
    I guess that's the price you pay
    To be some big shot like I am
    Out strecthed hands and one night stands
    Still I can't find love

    And when your walls come tumbling down
    I will always be around

    Yeah
    As it...hey

    And when your walls come tumbling down
    I will always be around

    People don't know about the things I say and do
    They don't understand about the shit that I've been through
    It's been so long since I've been home
    I've been gone, I've been gone for way too long
    Maybe I forgot all things I miss
    Oh somehow I know there's more to life than this
    I said it too many times
    And I still stand firm
    You get what you put in
    And people get what they deserve
    Still I ain't seen mine
    No I ain't seen mine
    I've been giving just ain't been gettin
    I've been walking that there line
    So I think I'll keep a walking
    With my head held high
    I'll keep moving on and only God knows why

    Only God
    Only God
    Only God knows why, why, why, why
    Only God...knows...why, why, why
    Only God knows why
    Take me to the river edge
    Take me to the river, hey hey hey

    In Flames - Only for the Weak (when I work/study/train too much, I get like this (overkill mode))

    can't tolerate your sadness
    Cause it's me you are drowning (you're drowning me)
    I won't allow (allow) any happiness
    Cause everytime you laugh, I feel so... (so) guilty (guilty)
    I feel so guilty

    Am I forced to have any regret
    I've become the lie, beautiful and free
    In my righteous own mind
    I adore and preach the insanity you gave to me

    Oh, sell me the infection, it is only for the weak
    No need for a sympathy, the misery that is me

    I've lost the ability to paint the clouds
    Cause it's me you're draining (you're draining me)
    I'm stuck in this slow-motion dark tale
    Cause everytime you run, I fall.. behind (behind)
    I fall behind

    And so I hear my voice again
    The tale of the bitter man here I am
    Shake the silence and hear what it says
    The tranquil pride that become the lie

    Oh, sell me the infection, it is only for the weak
    No need for a sympathy, the misery that is me

    Sell me the infection, it is only for the weak
    On bleeding knees, oh, I accept my fate

    [instr. part]

    Sell me the infection, it is only for the weak
    No need for a sympathy, the misery that is me

    Oh, sell me the infection, it is only for the weak
    On bleeding knees, oh, I accept my fate

    Sell me the infection, it is only for the weak
    No need for a sympathy, the misery that is me

    Oh, sell me the infection, it is only for the weak
    On bleeding knees...

    Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free (to wear sunscreen)


    Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '99
    Wear Sunscreen.
    If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
    it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
    scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
    than my own meandering experience…
    I will dispense this advice now.

    Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth;
    oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and
    beauty of your youth until they have faded.
    But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself
    and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before
    you and how fabulous you really looked….
    You are not as fat as you imagine.

    Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
    effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.
    The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
    never crossed your worried mind;
    the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

    Do one thing everyday that scares you

    Sing

    Don't be reckless with other people's hearts,
    don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.

    Floss

    Don't waste your time on jealousy;
    sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind…
    the race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

    Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults;
    if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

    Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

    Stretch

    Don't feel guilty if you don't know what
    you want to do with your life…
    the most interesting people I know didn't know at 22
    what they wanted to do with their lives,
    some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.

    Get plenty of calcium.

    Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.

    Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't,
    maybe you'll have children,maybe you won't,
    maybe you'll divorce at 40,
    maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…
    what ever you do, don't congratulate yourself
    too much or berate yourself either –
    your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's.
    Enjoy your body,
    use it every way you can…
    don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it,
    it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own..

    Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

    Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

    Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

    Get to know your parents,
    you never know when they'll be gone for good.

    Be nice to your siblings;
    they are the best link to your past
    and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

    Understand that friends come and go,
    but for the precious few you should hold on.
    Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle
    because the older you get,
    the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

    Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard;
    live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

    Travel.

    Accept certain inalienable truths,
    prices will rise,
    politicians will philander,
    you too will get old,
    and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young
    prices were reasonable,
    politicians were noble
    and children respected their elders.

    Respect your elders.

    Don't expect anyone else to support you.
    Maybe you have a trust fund,
    maybe you have a wealthy spouse;
    but you never know when either one might run out.

    Don't mess too much with your hair,
    or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

    Be careful whose advice you buy, but,
    be patient with those who supply it.
    Advice is a form of nostalgia,
    dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal,
    wiping it off,
    painting over the ugly parts and recycling
    it for more than it's worth.

    But trust me on the sunscreen
