ninenty nine luft balloons?

ok, well I like this thread, so I'll throw a few in that are off my usual genre, but are songs I really admire for the lyrics.

What is Truth, by Johnny Cash

The old man turned off the radio
Said, "Where did all of the old songs go
Kids sure play funny music these days
They play it in the strangest ways"
Said, "it looks to me like they've all gone wild
It was peaceful back when I was a child"
Well, man, could it be that the girls and boys
Are trying to be heard above your noise?
And the lonely voice of youth cries
"What is truth?"

A little boy of three sittin' on the floor
Looks up and says, "Daddy, what is war?"
"Son, that's when people fight and die"
The little boy of three says "Daddy, WHY?"
A young man of seventeen in Sunday school
Being taught the Golden Rule
And by the time another year goes `round
It may be his turn to lay his life down
Can you blame the voice of youth for asking
"What is truth?"

A young man sittin' on the witness stand
The man with the book says "Raise your hand"
"Repeat after me, I solemnly swear"
The man looked down at his long hair
And although the young man solemnly swore
Nobody seemed to hear anymore
And it didn't really matter if the truth was there
It was the cut of his clothes and the length of his hair!
And the lonely voice of youth cries
"What is truth?"

The young girl dancing to the latest beat
Has found new ways to move her feet
The young man speaking in the city square
Is trying to tell somebody that he cares
Yeah, the ones that you're calling wild
Are going to be the leaders in a little while
This old world's wakin' to a new born day
And I solemnly swear that it'll be their way
You better help the voice of youth find
"What is truth?"

You gotta love Johnny for writing this one, especially that during the time period when he wrote this the more common trend in country music was more along the lines of lynching hippies or anyone who wasn't "right".

Mostly I listen to punk rock, but every time I listen to the DK's "A Commercial" I want to freaking call up Jello and ask him if he's ever even listened to a Skynyrd song or if he's just hating them because they are southern. I can understand the facade behind a Guns for the Greedy MTV telethon, but I don't see how anyone who ever listened to an LS song would get the impression that Ronnie wanted people to run out and buy a "Saturday Night Special". This just goes to prove that hypocrisy is one of the defining characteristics of humanity because Jello accused (rightly) the PMRC of misinterpreting his lyrics to the public in the same way as he did LS in "A Commercial".

"Things Going On", by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Have you ever lived down in the ghetto?
Have you ever felt the cold wind blow?
If you don't know what I mean,
Won't you stand up and scream?!
'Cause there's things goin' on that you don't know.

Too many lives they've spent across the ocean.
Too much money been spent upon the moon.
Well, until they make it right
I hope they never sleep at night
They better make some changes
And do it soon!

They're goin ruin the air that we breathe
Lord have mercy!
They're gonna ruin us all, by and by.
I'm telling you all you beware
I don't think they really care
I think they just sit up there
And just get high.

Ok, now that I read the lyrics in the rest of the thread, I would surely have my songs skipped for being totally out of place (only after Frush's "Go, Go"- why not "Hey Mickey"? or were you into the Wham version? LOL). This is more appropriate high speed stuff that makes for good driving music.

Lost Motel by Strung Out

A picture on the wall, like a postcard with a better view of,
all things absent from Room 209.
Diana sips from an empty glass of hope she poured last night,
The clouds above reflect the shape of all she's gotta leave behind.

We always think there's something better in the place we are not,
In dreams the reality of it all,
Nobody's happy where they're at and we all wanna be somebody else

Another scribbled stationary book of lies,
another staged confession that just goes unheard,
Harry Detroit in 304 made one last promise now,
I'm going out without a trace a vanishing act before your eyes

Nobody wants what they have got and what they got is not enough,
in dreams the reality of it all,
a lighter shade of green the grass may be if I believe it so, then I'll be home.

Here I go uncertain that if what I find is what I want,
the best for me is everything,
I reach for the same as what I'm running from,
I guess I'll never know

Is it the struggle that we live for,
is it keeping us alive to breathe to want, to know, to love Just one more day,
Just one more way
So here I go.......I'm half the way to home.....

washed out from the deep of the ocean

while all the others are praying

calm down my heart... donīt beat so fast...
donīt be afraid just once in a lifetime
no rain can wash away my tears
no wind can soothe my pain
you made me doubt, you made me fear
but now iīm not the same
you took my wife, my unborn son...
torn into the deep of the ocean
i donīt pretend that i love you
īcause there is nothing left to loose

and when silence comes back to me
i find myself feeling lonely
standing here on the shores of destiny
i find myself feeling lonely
i had a life to give... many dreams to live...
donīt you know that youīre losing so much this time
beyond the waves... i will be free
while all the others are praying

calm down my heart...

the love in you, it does not burn,
there is no lesson you can learn
and there are sounds you cannot hear,
and there are feelings you canīt feel
calm down my heart... donīt beat so fast...
donīt be afraid just once in a lifetime

i donīt pretend that i love you
and this time iīm not scared of you

* 'Once in a Lifetime' by Wolfsheim.....in English this time

So this thread won't die off before we reach 100+ songs

Date Rape by Sublime

Let me tell you about a girl I know,
Had a drink about an hour ago.
Sitting in a corner by herself, in a bar in downtown hell.

She heard a noise and she looked through the door.
And saw a man shed never seen before.
Light skin, light blue eyes, a double-chin and a plastic smile.
Well, her eyebrow raised as he walked through the door
And took an empty seat next to her at the bar.
my brand new car is parked right outside. howd ya like to go for a ride?
And she said.wait a minute I have to think.
He said, thats fine. may I please buy you a drink
One drink turned into 3 or 4 and they left and got into his car
And they drove away someplace real far.

Now babe the time has come.
Howd ya like to have a little fun?
And she said. if we could only please be on our way, I will not run.

Thats when things got out of control.
She didnt want to, he had his way.
She said, lets go
He said, no way!
Come on babe its your lucky day.
Shut your mouth, were gonna do it my way.
Come on baby dont be afraid,
If it wasnt for date rape Id never get laid.

He finished up and he started the car
He turned around and drove back to the bar.
He said.now baby dont be sad, in my opinion you werent half-bad.
She picked up a rock.,threw it at the car, hit him in the head, now his got a big scar.
Come on party people wont you listen to me.
Date rape stylie.

The next day she went to her drawer, looked up her local attorney at law,
Went to the phone and filed the police report and then she took the guys ass to court.
Well, the day he stood in front of the judge he screamed, she lies that little slut!
The judge knew that he was full of shit and he gave him 25 years
And now his heart is filled with tears.

That night in jail it was getting late.
He was butt-raped by a large inmate, and he screamed.
But the guards paid no attention to his cries.

Thats when things got out of control.
The moral of the date rape story, it does not pay to be drunk and horny.
But thats the way it had to be.
They locked him up and threw away the key.
Well, I cant take pity on men of his kind,
Even though he now takes it in the behind.

Thats the way it had to be.
They locked him up and threw away the key.
Well, I cant take pity on men of his kind,
Even though he now takes it in the behind.

Date rape

She didnt want to take it!


** I've always thought it was funny how the PMRC thought that this song promoted date rape

classic sublime. Sublime, Metallica and Cake were my introduction to rock and roll and they're still 3 of my all time favs!
