The Fall – A Day in the Life Lyrics 9 years ago

found my coat and grabbed my stash
made the bus in seconds flat
found my way upstairs and had a smoke
and nobody spoke cause I went into a dream.

Johnny Cash – Jackson Lyrics 11 years ago

The Rolling Stones – Soul Survivor Lyrics 11 years ago
Kiss off to Bianca:

When you're flying your flags
All my confidence sags,
You got me packing my bags.
I'll stowaway at sea,
You make me mutiny,
Where you are I won't be,
You're gonna be the death of me

Devo – Freedom Of Choice Lyrics 11 years ago

They are drawing attention to the distinction of "Freedom Of" and "Freedom To"
and so that simply tossing the word "freedom" around by itself is meaningless out of context.

Cream – Tales Of Brave Ulysses Lyrics 11 years ago
the wpediers say:

The lyrics are inspired by Homer's Odyssey, an account of the adventures undertaken by Ulysses. This can be seen in the song's reference to "naked ears ... tortured by the sirens sweetly singing," an event from Homer's epic. When interviewed on the episode of the VH1 show, Classic Albums, which featured Disraeli Gears, lyricist Martin Sharp explained that he had recently returned from Ibiza, which was the source of many of the images in the song (e.g. "tiny purple fishes run laughing through her fingers") and the general feeling of having left an idyll to return to "the hard lands of the winter"; Clapton stated in the same show that he had been independently writing a tune based on the Loving Spoonful's "Summer in the City", and when Sharp gave him the words (on the back of a bar napkin) they fit the tune.

Cream – Badge Lyrics 11 years ago

This is one of my favorite tunes, aside from the interesting history.

George was helping his longtime friend come up with his required tune for the final Goodbye album.
Some friendships survive stress that ruins others, but you knew that.

My theory is that these three gentlemen used whatever means at their disposal, and they had no shortage, to get something done before a deadline. I do my best work that way, too.

Cream – Badge Lyrics 11 years ago

That's how i understand it.

John Lennon – John Sinclair Lyrics 11 years ago
Jul 1969 - Sinclair had been sentenced to prison in July 1969 for 10 years -- he'd been busted for possession of two marijuana cigarettes. (Hence the John Lennon lyric in "John Sinclair": "They gave him ten for two...what else can the judges do?") Amazingly, three days after the John Sinclair Freedom Rally, John Sinclair was freed.

Those were the days, when things could get done like that.

John Lennon – John Sinclair Lyrics 11 years ago
I don't know of anyone these days who can write like that.

John Lennon – John Sinclair Lyrics 11 years ago

As of late November 2009, John is serving as "High Priest" at the 22nd Annual Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.

Miss Kitten – Frank Sinatra Lyrics 16 years ago
Frank Sinatra would stay up all night and then have breakfast served upon a naked show girl.

The point is Frank IS dead, but newer generations continue to celebrate decadence.
