Well, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
And, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?

Mister Sifter sold me songs
when I was just sixteen
Now he stops at traffic lights
but only when they're green

Remember boy that your forefathers died
Lost in millions for a country's pride
But they never mention the trenches of belgium
When they stopped fighting and they were one
 
A spirit stronger than war was at work that night
December 1914 cold clear and bright
Countries' borders were right out of sight
When they joined together and decided not to fight

SlipKnot- Purity
Maze... psychopathic daze... I create this waste
Back away from tangents, on the verge of drastic
ways... can't escape this place... I deny your face
Sweat gets in my eyes, I think I'm slowly dying

Put me in a homemade cellar
Put me in a hole for shelter
Someone hear me please, all I see is hate
I can hardly breathe, and I can hardly take it

My favourite U2 lyrics are definitely With or Without You, I don't really like Bono. At all.

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you.

You say you want
Diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

My personal anthem

The Specials - Do Nothing

Each day I walk along this lonely street
Trying to find, find a future
New pair of shoes are on my feet
Cos' fashion is my only culture

Nothing ever change, oh no...
Nothing ever change

People say to me just be yourself
It makes no sense to follow fashion
How could I be anybody else
I don't try, I've got no reason

Nothing ever change, oh no...
Nothing ever change

I'm just living in a life without meaning
I walk and walk, do nothing
I'm just living in a life without feeling
I talk and talk, say nothing

Nothing ever change, oh no...
Nothing ever change

I walk along this same old lonely street
Still trying to find, find a reason
Policeman comes and smacks me in the teeth
I don't complain, it's not my function

Nothing ever change, oh no...
Nothing ever change

They're just living in a life without meaning
I walk and walk, do nothing
They're just playing in a life without thinking
They talk and talk, say nothing
I'm just living in a life without feeling
I walk and walk, I'm dreaming
I'm just living in a life without feeling
I talk and talk, say nothing
I'm just living in a life without meaning
I walk and walk, do nothing

The world would be a worse off place without Bono just because of his songwriting! I love these ones from one of my favourite U2 songs

And I had opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb
Hanging over my bed"

Well, it's like something's in the air
That makes me feel the same
Always racing to the near side

Crazed illusion crashing through
Brave the sea of rage
Always wishing, always wasting

Torn between the passing times
The end escapes me
Sadness maims the only recall

Crazed illusion crashing through
Brave the sea of rage
Always wishing, always wasting

I would've linked the video, but it's blocked in my country. Shame, because it's such a good song.

I need another story
Something to get off my chest
My life gets kind of boring
Need something that i can confess

Tell me what you want to hear
Something that were like those years
I'm sick of all the insincere
So I'm gonna give all my secrets away

Got no reason
Got no shame
Got no family
I can blame
Just don't let me disappear
I'ma tell you everything

Translated to English.

Mom "Anarchy"


A soldier was walking home
And saw those guys
" Who is your mom, guys?"
Asked the soldier
Mom is Anarchy
Dad is a Glass of cheap wine
All guys weared leather jackets
All were little guys

It's raining again,
I'm hearing its pitter patter down.
It's wet in the street
Reflecting the lights and splashing feet,
Nowhere to go,
And nothing I have to do, have to do.

It's raining again,
I follow the Christmas lights down town.
I'm leaving the flow
Of people walking all around,
Round and round,

I hear the sound of rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.

Just walking along,
My clothes are soaked right through to the skin,
I haven't a doubt, that this is what life is all about,
The sun and the rain.
Scraps of blame washing down the drain.

I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.

It's raining again
A crack in the clouds reveals blue skies
I've been feeling so low(low)
But now everything is on my side
The sun and the rain.
Walk with me fill my heart again

I hear the rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.

I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.

Do de do do de do do do
Do de do de do de do do do

Awesome track when you're feeling a bit down. Madness are legends.

The Levellers maid of the river

She's the maid of the river
So beautifully plain
As fresh as the country
That gave her her name
As crisp as the snow
And as swift as the rain
She shone like the sun
Before all of our games
She shone like a jewel
But her price was not gold
She cried more than most
When her story was told
But her people were evil
Left her baron and cold
And her heart went to market
Where her body was sold

Chorus

I said hey hey won't you take me away
Because I can't see the point
In the dawn of the day
When so many killers gonna take you away
And leave little left except hatred

Always liked the opening line from 'Glass' by Incubus for some reason :

If I had a dime for every time you walked away,
I could afford to not give a sh*t
and buy a drink and drown the day

Absolutely love Madness mate, when i was growing up Suggs was my hero. Seen them live so many times, their music is timeless and reminds me of times when this country was our country. When we could be whoever we wanted to be without fear of reprisal.

A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time
The odour of old prison food takes a long time to pass you by
When you’ve been inside
Day upon day of this wandering gets you down
Nobody gives you a chance or a dollar in this old town

Hovering silence from you is a giveaway
Squalor and smoke’s not your style
“I don’t like this place”
We better go
Then I compare notes with your older sister
I am a lazy gett, she is as pure as the cold driven snow
She accepts my confession

What did you learn from your time in the solitary
Cell of your mind?
There was noises, distractions from anything good
And the old prison food
Colour my life with the chaos of trouble
Cause anything’s better than posh isolation
1 missed the bus
You were laid on your back
With the boy from the arab strap
With the boy from the arab strap

It’s something to speak of the way you are feeling
To crowds there assembled
Do you ever feel you have gone too far?
Everyone suffers in silence a burden
The man who drives minicabs down in Old Compton
The Asian man
With his love hate affair
With his racist clientele

A central location for you is a must as you stagger about making free with your lewd and lascivious boasts
We know you are soft cause we’ve all seen you dancing
We know you are hard cause we all saw you drinking from noon
Until noon again
You’re the boy with the filthy laugh
You’re the boy with the arab strap

Strapped to the table with suits from the shelter shop
Comic celebrity takes a back seat as the cigarette catches
And sets off the smoke alarm
What do you make of the cool set in London?
You’re constantly updating your hit parade of your ten biggest wanks
She’s a waitress and she’s got style
Sunday bathtime could take a while

Belle and Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap

Underlined bit is the best line in a brilliant song.
