Band: Nevermore
Song: Cenotaph
Lyrics:

"And I will build this in her name.
The dream will not allow failure,
only servitude, for I am it's slave"

Cenotaph

Foreboding fear trickles down the spine
Into the pool, resonating
Behind the wall the dreamer lies in velvet sleep
She must be still, never make a sound

Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... awaken
Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... where are you my love?

We build our walls around our games
We decompose, dreamers never really die
She lies unknown, the cenotaph in her name

Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... awaken
Awake....... awaken the dreamer
Awake....... where are you my love?

She lies unknown
She lies unknown
She lies unknown
She lies unknown
She hides

This song means alot to me. You may read it's lyrics as someone who is longing for a lost love. But when I hear this song I see so much more. "She" to me means someting more greater than a human being, something that can never be found. But what it means to me.. You will never know.

EDIT: Oh I'll have anew song every day.. I hope that doesn't anoy you all.. =(

Band: The Postal Service
Song: Sleeping In
Lyrics:

"Last week I had the strangest dream that
everything was exactly how it seemed
where there was never any mystery of who
shot john f. kennedy
it was just a man with something to prove
slightly bored and severly confused
he steadied his rifle with his target in the
center
and became famous on that day in november

don't wake me I plan on sleeping in

again last night I had that strange dream
where everything was exactly how it seemed
no concerns about the world getting warmer
people thought that they were just being
rewarded
for treating others as they'd like to be treated
for obeying stop signs and curing diseases
for mailing letters with the address of the
sender
now we can swim any day in november

don't wake me I plan on sleeping in"

I apologize if you were looking for something profound. To be honest, I'm sick of all the 'profound' statements my life throws at me. It's another excuse for those teenage kids to start more drama.

*Strikes a dramatic pose*

Music seems to be the new refuge of kids everywhere, heh.

well, since I have the privilage of listening to music while I "work", I listen to lots and lots of things... but I won't list them here
I will follow DivA's wishes...
The one song I did purposefully put on during my drive in this morning was
Gary Numan - Metal
Damn... that song kicks so much ass it's not even funny.

Ferra - excellent choice, btw. Very good CD.
Riel - totally brought me back to a happy childhood place.

Song: bang bang from kill bill..

lyrics:I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang
He shot me down, bang bang
I hit the ground , bang bang
That awful sound, bang bang
My baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang
I shot you down, bang bang
You hit the ground , bang bang
That awful sound, bang bang
I used to shoot you down

Music played and people sangÖ
Just for me the church bells rangÖ

Now he's gone I don't know why
And till this day some times I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang
He shot me down, bang bang
I hit the ground , bang bang
That awful sound, bang bang
My baby shot me down.

i dont know i just absolutely love this song.. its so like soothing....heh plus its from a kickass movie...

Band: Dream Theater
Song: Voices
Lyrics:

Voices

'Love, just don't stare'
He used to say to me
every Sunday morning
The spider in the window
The angel in the pool
The old man takes the poison
Now the widow makes the rules

'So speak, I'm right here'
She used to say to me
not a word, not a word
Judas on the ceiling
the Devil in my bed
I guess Easter's never coming
So I'll just wait inside my head

Like a scream but sort of silent
living off my nightmares

Voices repeating me
'Feeling threatened?
We reflect your hopes and fears.'
Voices discussing me
'Others steal your thoughts
they're not confined
within your mind.'

Thought disorder
Dream control
Now they read my mind on the radio
But where was the Garden of Eden?

I feel elated
I feel depressed
Sex is death, Death is sex
Says it right here on my Crucifix

Like a scream but sort of silent
living off my nightmares

Voices protecting me
'Good behavior
brings the Savior
to his knees.'
Voices rejecting me
'Others steal your thoughts
they're not confined
to your own mind.'

[Dialogue by rap artist Prix-mo reading from the book "Cultural Revolution".]
"I don't wanna be here, 'cause of my
suffering, 'cause of my illness.
Only love is worth having, only
love is what matters, loving every
people on equal terms. "
"You've got to know who you're
dealin' with because, like a stranger,
a-heh, just might come in through
here with a gun... and then, what
would you do? (Heh.)"
"Everything is immaterial..."
"'n' you know that reality is immaterial."
"This is not reality..."

I'm kneeling on the floor
staring at the wall
like the spider in the window
I wish that I could speak
Is there fantasy in refuge?
God in politicians?
Should I turn on my religion?
These demons in my head tell me to

I'm lying here in bed
Swear my skin is inside out
Just another Sunday morning

Seen my diary on the newsstand
Seems we've lost the truth to quicksand
It's a shame no one is praying
'Cause these voices in my head
keep saying...

'Love, just don't stare.'
'Reveal the Word when you're
supposed to'
Withdrawn and introverted
Infectiously perverted
'Being laughed at and confused
keeps us pleasantly amused
enough to stay.'

Maybe I'm just Cassandra fleeting
Twentieth century Icon bleeding
Willing to risk Salvation
to escape from isolation

I'm witness to redemption
heard you speak but never listened
Can you rid me of my secrets?
Deliver us from Darkness?

Voices repeating me
'Feeling threatened?
We reflect your hopes and fears.'
Voices discussing me
Don't expect your own Messiah
This neverworld which you desire
is only in your mind.

This song means alot to me also. I talk to alot of people about music, and to most of them this song is just a rant from a lonely guy. But, again, it's so much more than that. This song tells us of a way of life -- a way I, myself, live by. The notion of Love, Don't Stare means, to me, that the one problem in life is that there is no love, only gain. If everyone would love no matter what religion, color, race, hobby.. etc.. There are so many factors about life that keep people apart. But I believe that everyone is worth loving. Everyone can benifit everyone else. If we could only get these blind ideals out of our heads, accept each others' differences, the world could be a much, much, better place.

"Love, just don't stare"

I've been in the mood for Nevermore a lot lately, particularly this song. It inspires me on a tremendous level.

Band: Nevermore

Song: Insignificant

Ours is not to question the reasons why
Crippled indecision repeats the path I once denied
Insignificant, am I ?
The color of sundown,of crimson sky
The beauty that breaks down
And gives the day unto the night

And then one day you'll realize
Just a speck in the spectrum
Insignificant,am I ?
And then one day you'll realize
The beauty that breaks down
never learns the reason why

scan my horizon as blue turns to black
the sky is gone again
and all beneath are born to die
insignificant,am I ?

And then one day you'll realize
Just a speck in the spectrum
Insignificant,am I ?
And then one day you'll realize
The beauty that breaks down
never learns the reason why


***

As the lyrics and title both suggest, it tells a tale of one questioning his validity in the world and the obvious lack of fairness between the roles of individuals in this world. He is a pawn, just as the majority of the human race is, to some presumably higher power. The previously mentioned power can be human, as many of us are just pawns to political games and we never truly learn why these things happen, we just hear petty lies in forms of propoganda. It can also be taken in a spiritual sense where one questions his role in the cosmic sense, in reference to the classic ideal of fate. Regardless, this song appeals to me greatly because, by nature, I am a person who has always questioned everything, probably to an annoying extent. If I'm denied something, I'll always ask for the reason, and it has to be just. This is partially why I decided to persue philosophy as a career choice -- which is, in essense, a search for the truth. "Philosophy" literally translates into "Love of Wisdom" from ancient Greek.

It also inspires me on a fictional level. I can almost see cutscenes (Heh, too much FFXI) of some fantastic tale every time I hear it, most likely because the music is so enchanting. I just wish I could put it all together, but I always see little bits and pieces. Anyway, that's my song beigesmile.gif

Screw the one a day.. My Mood Fluctuates ro much for me to only post one a day

Band: Billy Joel
Song: She's Alwyas A Women To Me
Lyrics:

She's Always A Woman

She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child
But she's always a woman to me

She can lead you to live
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
She steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She will promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me

She is frequently kind
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She's nobody's fool
But she can't be convicted
She's earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me

Haha, This is my Chimaera song. This song explains her pesrsonality more than she can herself. It also explains how the world will see her, but, "She's Always a Women to Me" Everytime I hear this song or even think about it, I can't help but cry. The power of love is amazing, to think, it's possible for one person to love another so much that the mere thought of them will change "shit" to "gold".

Sigh.. I love that girl.

Well, you can look at my sig for an obvious one.

But another song of LP that is one of my favorites is "In the End"

Ahh....


"It starts with one
thing, I don't know why, it doesn't even matter how hard ya try
Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme to explain in due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing, watch it count down as the pendalum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day the clock ticks life away
It's so unreal
Didn't look out below, watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on, but didn't even know that I wasted it all
Just to watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time that

*I tried so hard, and got so far
But in the end, it doesn't even matter.
I had to fall and lose it all,
But in the end, it doesn't even matter.*

One thing, I don't know why
it doesn't even matter how hard ya try
keep that in mind I designed this rhyme to remind myself
how I tried so hard
Despite of the way you were mocking me,
I acted like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you've faught with me
I'm surprised it got so far.
Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then but it all comes back to me
In the end
I kept everything inside and even though I tried it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time that

*chorus*

I put my trust in you, pushed as far as I can go
For all this, there's only one thing you should know

I put my trust in you, pushed as far as I can go
For all this, there's only one thing you should know....

*chorus*


It's amazing too because I haven't listened for that song since last summer, but I still remember it so well. That's what I love about music; it doesn't fade from memory. buttrock.gif

I doubt anyone would know these guys. But if your in to hip hop, you might be familiar with the DJ. DJ Premier.

Gangstarr- Mass Appeal

Its a pretty old school song with a pretty hot beat. One of those songs you could chill with, while your in your car coming from a hard days work. Or use some good background music when your hanging out with friends at your house drinking remenicing(sp) over the past. I really love this group.

Hmm...here's a song I like, it may not be as symbolic as any of your posts, but...to me it means a lot.

Feeder - Yesterday Went Too Soon

Sitting in today, watching traffic buzzing by, and faces nosing in
A victim of regret, it glitters and it fades away, like silver turning grey
Washed it all away, waiting for this dream to end, before it sucks me in

I'm climbing high, up above the streets and rows of neon lights
I'm holding out my hand but I'm alone
Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday

Crashing on the ground, the silence seems to suffocate, and bury me again
Waiting for a taste, of happiness to lift me free, and carry me away

I'm climbing high, up above the streets and rows of neon lights
I know it's just a dream but I'm alive
Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday
I'm still missing yesterday
I'll wait, I'll wait for you tonight.

Lost another week, feeling like a leper in, a world of vanity
It's killing me today, addiction pulls you down, you know
And she's the drug I need

Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday
Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday.

Song: Just breathe
Band: Telepopmusik
Genre: Trance
Lyrics:

I brought you something close to me,
Left for something you see though your here.
You haunt my dreams
There's nothing to do but believe,
Just Believe.
Just Breathe.

Another day, just believe,
Another day, just breathe

I'm used to it by now.
Just breathe.
Lying in my bed,
Another day, staring at the ceiling.

Song: Eolution 169
Lyrics:

Welcome to the pleasure dome,
now take a seat the crowd is watching you
Just rats in this experiment
Now learn the maze but don't tear yourself in two
Don't let it pull you down

And one by one we crawl, and two by two
Into the mouth of madness, we seek the perfect view
We reach another turn then fall out of time
In organized chaos
Evolution 169

You can touch but never taste the answers
Like the way that I want you
Today I killed my ego, if hell is real
Dear god please tie mynoose
And then he pulled me down

And one by one we crawl, and two by two
Into the mouth of madness we seek the perfect view
We reach another turn then fall out of time
In organized chaos
Evolution 169
And one by one we crawl, and two by two
Into the mouth of madness, we fly away

Don't set your mind to one side
Don't set your mind to one side

This song speaks for itself.

Song: Innocence Faded

Lyrics:

Animation
breathes a cloudless mind
Fascination
leaves the doubting blind
Until the circle breaks and wisdom lies ahead
the faithful live Awake
the rest remain misled

Some will transcend spinning years
One as if time disappears

Innocence faded
the mirror falls behind you
Trinity jaded
I break down walls to find you

Callow and vain
fixed like a fossil, shrouding pain
Passionless stage
Distant like brothers
Wearing apathetic displays
Sharing flesh like envy in cages
Condescending
Not intending to end

Some will transcend spinning years
One as if time disappears

Innocence faded
the mirror falls behind you
Trinity jaded
I break down walls to find you

Beginnings get complicated
the farther we progress
Opinions are calculated
Immune to openness

Beyond the circle's edge
We're driven by her blessings
Forever hesitating
Caught beneath the wheel

Innocence faded
the mirror falls behind you
Cynically jaded
The child will crawl to find you
Dive
Artist: Godflesh
Song: Frail

Owe yourself, but no one else
Behind your eyes, inside your head
Reach in, but don't reach out
I'll come and try, if only in vain
I've never watched in shame, I've never watched in vain
Don't ever change no, just stay the same...

A rare melodic tune from Godflesh, known for their heavy use of pounding drum sequencers and grinding guitar/bass detunings. Minimal repeated verses augment the bleak undertones of the progression.

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
Thereís nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you donít know what he means to me, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Iím begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please donít take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
Heís the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please donít take my man

Please donít take him even though you can

unitself
Totally breaking the rules here, but ...
Today the CD of the day is
Artist - Killing Joke
CD Name - Pandemonium

With this CD, Killing Joke moved into a similar but more (bad description here) up-to-date sound. Starting out as more of a punk band many many years ago, they reached big success with the excellent album Night Time which has the anthem song for the decade 'Eighties' on it. Damn that song rocks... the entire album does. Anyway, many years and albums later... Pandemonium. Sounds to me like they had been listening to Ministry the day before they wrote many of the songs. Not a bad thing, you can just really hear the similarities. Standouts for me include Exorcism, Millenium and Whiteout.

Thanks to a certain AT'er, I have been listening to all of my old music again. The stuff that I used to listen to 10 - 15 years ago. It's been awesome.

Quite possibly the saddest song in existence:

Band: Kansas

Song: Dust in the Wind

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind.
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

[Now] Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy.

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind, everything is dust in the wind.

Song: Angry Johnny

Lyrics:

Johnny, Angry Johnny, this is Jezebel in Hell
I wanna kill you, I wanna blow you...away

I can do it you gently
I can do it with an animal's grace
I can do it with precision
I can do it with gormet taste

But either way
Either (way), either way
I wanna kill you
I wanna blow you...
Away

I can do it to your mind
I can do it to your face
I can do it with integrity
I can do it with disgrace

I can do it in a church
I can do it any time or place
I can do it like an angel
To quiet down your rage

I can do it in the water
I can do on dry land
I can do it with instruments
I can do it with my own bare hands

Where did your pleasure go
When the pain came through you
Where did your happiness go
This hussies running you around now
Getting you down now
Where is your pleasure now Johnny
Where has your pleasure gone now

Johnny, Angry Johnny...

Oh no no no Iím a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone

Mars ainít the kind of place to raise your kids

And thereís no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science I donít understand

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist

Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch

There they are all standing in a row (one, two, three, four)
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head (and bigger)
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist

Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch (all together now)
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch (harmony)
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball, roll a bowl a ball
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch


...yah that's actually what I'm listening too.

My favorite band. Streetlight Manifesto. *points to sig*

Streetlight Manifesto - Here's to Life
Lyrics:

How did Camus really die that night?
Were they right?
When he died was it really his time?
Or was it suicide?
And Holden Caulfield is a friend of mine,
we go drinking from time to time.
And I find it gets harder every time.

Back off,
but you're out on the street again.
Don't you stop,
did you know you couldn't swim.
Back off
until you're out on the street again.
I'm not going to play if there ain't no way i'll win.

Hemingway never seemed to mind the banality of a normal life,
and I find it gets harder every time.
So he aimed the shotgun into the blue
placed his face in between the two and sighed. Here's to life!

Back off,
but you're out on the street again.
Don't you stop,
did you know you couldn't swim.
Back off,
until you're out on the street again.
I'm not going to play if there ain't no way I'll win.

Hey there Salinger, what did you do?
Just when the world was looking for you
to write anything that meant anything,
you told us you were through.
And it's been years since you passed away
but I see no plaque, and I see no grave,
and I can't help believing that you wanted it that way

And Vincent Van Gogh, why do you weep?
You were on your way to heaven but the road was steep
and who was there to break your fall?
We're guilty, one and all.
And I don't know much, but I do know this: with a golden heart comes a rebel fist.
But I can't help agreeing with those that would not quit.

And it makes me sick when I think of it
all my heroes could not live with this.
And I hope you rest in peace because because with us you never did.
And you were much too young,
and you changed my life,
but I draw the line at suicide.
So here's to life!

Iíve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
Thatís what the showman said
Iíve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball, roll a bowl a ball
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Iíve got a lovely bunch of coconuts (theyíre lovely)
There they are all standing in a row (one, two, three, four)
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head (and bigger)
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
Thatís what the showman said
Iíve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch (all together now)
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch (harmony)
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball, roll a bowl a ball
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch


...yah that's actually what I'm listening too.

Sammy was low
Just watching the show
Over and over again
Knew it was time
He'd made up his mind
To leave his dead life behind
His boss said to him
'Boy you'd better begin
To get those crazy notions right out of your head
Sammy who do you think that you are?
You should've been sweeping up the Emerald bar'

Spread your wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Pull yourself together
'Cos you know you should do better
That's because you're a free man

He spends his evenings alone in his hotel room
Keeping his thoughts to himself he'd be leaving soon
Wishing he was miles and miles away
Nothing in this world nothing would make him stay

Since he was small
Had no luck at all
Nothing came easy to him
Now it was time
He'd made up his mind
'This could be my last chance'

His boss said to him 'now listen boy
You're always dreaming
You've got no real ambition you won't get very far
Sammy boy don't you know who you are?
Why can't you be happy at the Emerald bar?'

So honey
Spread your wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Pull yourself together
'Cos you know you should do better
That's because you're a free man
Come on honey
