    oh yea, I'm referring to titles only being descriptive, not actual lyrics. I'm not "stepping to your wake with your blood on my shirt".

    BAD RELIGION----I WANT TO CONQUER THE WORLD

    Hey Brother Christian with your high and might errand,
    Your actions speak so loud, I can't hear a word you're saying.
    Hey Sister Bleeding Heart with all of your compassion,
    Your labors soothe the hurt but can't assuage temptation.
    Hey man of science with your perfect rules of measure,
    Can you improve this place with the data that you gather?
    Hey Mother Mercy can your loins bear fruit forever?
    Is your fecundity a trammel or a treasure?
    And I want to conquer the world,
    Give all the idiots a brand new religion,
    Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil,
    Promote equality in all my decisions
    With a quick wink of the eye
    And a "God you must be joking!"
    Hey Mr. Diplomat with your worldly aspirations,
    Did you see the children cry when you left them at the station?
    Hey moral soldier you've got righteous proclamation,
    And precious tomes to fuel your pulpy conflagrations.
    And I want to conquer the world,
    Give all the idiots a brand new religion,
    Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil,
    Promote equality in all of my decisions
    I want to conquer the world,
    Expose the culprits and feed them to the children,
    I'll do away with air pollution and then all save the whales,
    We'll have peace on earth and global communion.
    I want to conquer the world! (x4)

    small by lamb.
    if my life were a movie, this album would be the soundtrack.

    Sometimes I climb High above the city
    To see all the lights shining there so pretty
    And think of the millions of lives going on
    At this present moment and those come and gone

    And it make me float free
    To feel how small my life must be
    And it make me float free
    To feel how small my life must be

    When ever I can I go down to the sea
    And wonder at how many miles there must be
    And all of the people on all of its shores
    At this present moment and those gone before

    And it makes me float free
    To feel how small my life must be
    And it make me float free…

    Sometimes I’m out in the bustling street
    Dazzled by all of the faces I see
    It strikes me we get lost so soon after birth
    But one smile can turn-over heaven and Earth

    And it makes me float free
    To feel how small my life must be

    barely legal by the strokes

    i didn't take no shortcuts
    i spent the money that i saved up
    aw mama runnin out of luck
    well like my sister don't give a fuck
    i wanna steal your innocence
    to me my life it don't make any sense
    your strange manners i love you so
    why don't you wear your new trench coat

    i should've worked much harder
    i should've just not bothered
    i never show up on weekdays
    somethin that you learned yesterday
    drive you to work, you'll be on time
    your little problem, they're not yours they're mine
    come on listen to what i say
    i've got some secrets that'll make you stay

    i just want to turn you down
    i just want to turn you around
    you ain't never had nothin i wanted but
    i want it all
    i just can't figure out
    nothin

    and all together it went well
    we made pretend we were best friends
    then she said oh you're a freak
    they ordered me to make mistakes
    together again like the beginning
    it all works somehow in the end
    the things we did, the thing you hide
    but for the record it's between you and i

    Good Souls - Starsailor

    Good Souls

    Feel sick after every meal,
    'Cause I know a life from your burning weed,
    Sleep, I sleep every day,
    Wipe the cobwebs away, I need to be loved,
    Christ I'm out of my mind,
    I need to be loved, I need to be loved,

    So I turn to you and I say,
    Thank goodness for the Good Souls that make life better,
    So I turn to you and I say,
    If it wasn't for the Good Souls, life would not matter,

    Straight in on your girlfriend,
    Making her feel like there's gonna be war.
    Dive, straight in at the deep end,
    Making you feel like there's gonna be war.

    So I turn to you and I say,
    Thank goodness for the Good Souls that make life better,
    So I turn to you and I say,
    If it wasn't for the Good Souls, life would not matter,

    One good day of the weekend I'll be up again,
    One good day of the week I'll be higher than the Government,

    So I turn to you and I say,
    Thank goodness for the Good Souls that make life better,
    So I turn to you and I say,
    If it wasn't for the Good Souls, life would not matter,

    So I turn to you and I say,
    You're messing with a good heart,
    You've gotta take what's yours

    lamb is where it's at! can't wait until they tour canada again...

    i'm having difficulty picking the best one, but i've been feeling The Weakerthans on and off for quite a while now:

    Aside
    Measure me
    in metered lines
    in one decisive stare
    the time it takes
    to get from here to there

    My ribs that show
    through t-shirts
    these shoes i got
    for free
    i'm unconsoled
    i'm lonely
    i am so much better
    than i used to be

    Terrified of telephones
    and shopping malls
    and knives
    and drowning in the pools
    of other lives

    Rely a bit too heavily
    on alcohol
    and irony
    Get clobbered on
    by courtesy
    in love with love
    and lousy poetry

    And i'm leaning
    on this broken fence
    between Past and Present tense
    And i'm losing
    all those stupid games
    that i swore i'd never play
    And it almost feels okay


    Circumnavigate this body
    of wonder
    and uncertainty
    Armed with every precious failure
    and amateur
    cartography

    I breathe in deep before
    i spread those maps out
    on the bedroom floor

    I'm leaving
    wave goodbye

    i'm losing
    right on time
    (but i'll try)
    with the last ways left
    to remeber

    Sing my imperfect
    offering

    at one point, although not so much now, i would have said:

    AMPHETEMINE LOGIC by the Sisters Of Mercy
    Watch them do
    The falling over
    Watch them do
    The standing still

    CHORUS
    Nothing but the knife to live for
    One life all I need
    Give me one good reason
    Give me more s.....

    (Women)
    And the women come and go
    (Talk)
    Talking about me like they know
    (Men)
    Bought and sold
    And the world keeps turning
    People cold
    And people burning

    CHORUS [x2]
    (Amphetamine logic)

    Hit up
    Steel in hand
    Lit up
    Like candles
    Burning
    Like Catherine wheels
    Turning
    On

    CHORUS [x3]
    (Amphetamine logic)
    CHORUS [x3]

    there's a couple reasons why this song kinda represents how I'm feeling, and what I'm thinking....

    Please Forgive Me-David Gray

    Please forgive me If I act a little strange
    For I know not what I do.
    Feels like lightning running through my veins
    Everytime I look at you
    Everytime I look at you

    Help me out here All my words are falling short
    And there's so much I want to say
    Want to tell you just how good it feels
    When you look at me that way
    When you look at me that way

    Throw a stone and watch the ripples flow
    Moving out across the bay
    Like a stone I fall into your eyes
    Deep into some mystery
    Deep into that mystery

    I got half a mind to scream out loud
    I got half a mind to die

    So I won't ever have to lose you girl
    Won't ever have to say goodbye
    I won't ever have to lie
    Won't ever have to say goodbye

    Yeah na na na na Yeah na na na na

    Please forgive me If I act alittle strange
    For I know not what I do
    It's like my head is filled with lightning girl
    Everytime I look at you
    Everytime I look at you
    Everytime I look at you
    Everytime I look at you

    Fuck, "First, Last and Always" was such an important album to me circa 1988. That tape rarely left my walkman, and if it did, it was in my pocket.

    BBB.

    "In this cruel place your voice upon the maelstrom, in the wake of a ship of fools I'm falling further down, if you can see me Maryanne reach out and take me home.."

    Now everyone sing, IN GERMAN!

    This Love - Pantera (this one is special)

    If ever words were spoken
    Painful and untrue
    I said I loved but I lied
    In my life
    All I wanted
    Was the keeping
    Of someone like you
    As it turns out
    Deeper within me
    Love was twisted and pointed at you

    Acoustic # 3 - Goo Goo Dolls

    And I wonder where these dreams go
    When the world gets in your way
    What's the point in all this screaming
    No one's listening anyway

    Black - Pearl Jam

    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life.
    I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky but why, why, why can't it be, oh, can't it be mine?

    Outside - Staind

    All the times that I've cried - all this wasting - it's all inside
    And I feel all this pain - stuffed it down - it's back again
    And I lie here in bed all alone- I can't mend
    And I fear tomorrow will be okay

    Girl - Tori Amos

    She's been everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own
    Everybody else's girl maybe one day she'll be her own

    and many, many more.

    Right now we're singing this at work.

    "We're in the $$$, We're in the $$$..."

    It's year end, and we keep getting a bigger and bigger budget, cause we normally have no budget and get the left overs of others.

    Something I Can Never Have - Nine Inch Nails

    you always were the one to show me how
    back then i couldn't do the things that i can do now
    this thing is slowly taking me apart
    grey would be the color if i had a heart
    come on tell me

    Changes - Black Sabbath

    I feel unhappy
    I feel so sad
    I've lost the best friend
    that I ever had

    Raindrops + Sunshowers - Smashing Pumpkins

    Rain falls on everyone
    The same old rain
    And I'm just trying to
    Walk with you
    Between the raindrops
    I send my echo out
    To get your love without
    Obscured reflections of
    My love

    Yay Bad Religion! I can't believe the concert sold out before I could get tickets.... Grrr.

    Drunk Sincerity

    the smell of virgin pages wafted through the swinging doors and the croaking speech he'd heard from countries counsellors before they said "we all care for you, we know how you suffer but i know you can succeed, i used to have it so much rougher" there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise and like fools we trust the delivery but it's all just drunk sincerity in maternal family assembly poised regarding the blue tube the numbers crept up higher and the hawks stayed out of view then the generals said "we don't want our boys dead your sons and your husbands will be coming back heroes soon" with steam, heat, and rhythm in the back seat of the car and adolescent perspective projecting life's forecast to the stars you heard love from the lips and you were rapt by the hips and the promise was eternal but you couldn't see that far
