      The Kinks - Brainwashed

      The aristocrats and bureaucrats
      Are dirty rats
      For making you what you are
      They're up there and you're down here
      You're on the ground and they're up with the stars
      All your life they've kicked you around and pushed you around
      Till you can't take any more
      To them you're just a speck of dirt
      But you don't want to get up off the floor
      Mister you're just brainwashed
      They give you social security
      Tax saving benefits that grow at maturity
      Yeah, you're content just to be
      What they want you to be
      And to do what they want you to
      Yes you are, yes you are
      Get down on your knees

      I bear more grudges
      Than lonely high court judges
      When you sleep
      I will creep
      Into your thoughts
      Like a bad debt
      That you can't pay
      Take the easy way
      And give in
      Yeah, and let me in
      Oh, let me in
      Oh let me ...
      Oh, let me in

      Forgive me father for I have sinned
      I must confess it's brothers with my eyes that I undress
      Once a day I think about killing myself
      I can't carry on I must be strong even though it hurts as I sing this song
      That I feel wrong
      And I feel wrong

      It's the images of him as a young man then cutting to Johnny sitting at the piano as an old man that is most powerful for me.

      Utterly gorgeous song. Another Oasis classic. Just having a discussion with my brother on this choice of lyric below. It is well known by almost everyone but in the context of when it was written it is so poignant and meaningful. Definitely Maybe is an album about aspiration written and performed by a band that dreamed to live the lifestyle they would go on to lead. While (What's The Story) Morning Glory showcases that lifestyle at its most euphoric and uplifting (and then Be Here Now arguably showcasing the excess of it all!), Definitely Maybe was the album which represented the dreams of many working class folks growing up wanting to be rock and roll stars. It's a great moment in British music history and Live Forever typifies it best.

      Maybe I don't really want to know
      How your garden grows
      I just want to fly
      Lately did you ever feel the pain
      In the morning rain
      As it soaks you to the bone

      Maybe I just want to fly
      I want to live I don't want to die
      Maybe I just want to breath
      Maybe I just don't believe
      Maybe you're the same as me
      We see things they'll never see
      You and I are gonna live forever

      That's what Noel did, simplicity but stunning words that everyone can relate to

      All we know is that we don't know
      How it's gonna be
      Please brother let it be
      Life on the other hand
      Won't let us understand
      We're all part of the masterplan




      Is anyone here prepared to say
      Just what they mean or is it too late
      For anyone here to try to do
      Just what it takes to get through to you

      So let's all make believe
      That we're still friends and we like each other
      Let's all make believe
      That in the end we're gonna need each other

      Straddle my hope and make me pray
      To a god I've never seen, but I've betrayed
      To the people who live the earth, the life in a place I'll never be til I'm crucified










      Won't you take me
      Won't you take me to the edge of night and make me
      Won't you make me walk into the light
      And there'll be no eyes
      No eyes that see such beauty would lose their site
      And there'll be no lies
      No lies that you could tell me to make things right

      And this one:


      What tongueless ghost of sin crept through my curtains?
      Sailing on a sea of sweat on a stormy night
      I think he don't got a name but I can't be certain
      And in me he starts to confide

      That my family don't seem so familiar
      And my enemies all know my name
      And if you hear me tap on your window
      Better get on yer knees and pray panic is on the way

      My pulse pumps out a beat to the ghost dancer
      My eyes are dead and my throat's like a black hole
      And if there's a god would he give another chancer
      An hour to sing for his soul

      Ditto. One of my all time favorite songs.

      Another one that really hits me deep

      Underneath this smile Lies everything
      All my hopes, anger, pride and shame

      Make myself a pact, not to shut doors on the past
      Just for today,... I am free

      All of the rumors
      Keeping me grounded
      I never said, I never said that they were
      Completely unfounded
      And all those lies
      Written lies, twisted lies
      Well, they weren't lies
      They weren't lies
      They weren't lies

      I never said
      I never said
      I could have mentioned your name
      I could have dragged you in
      Guilt by implication
      By association
      I've always been true to you
      In my own strange way
      I've always been true to you
      In my own sick way
      I'll always stay true to you

      Religion's often the source of some great musical lyrics. Found these lyrics quite apt for the kind of conflicting ideas that surround Christmas nowadays.

      God has got his phone off the hook, babe
      Would he even pick up if he could
      It's been a while since we saw that child
      Hanging 'round this neighbourhood
      You see his mother dealing in a doorway
      See Father Christmas with a begging bowl
      Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
      The High Street never looked so low
