Pere Ubu – Wasted Lyrics 2 years ago
Lyrics are copyright protected, so I guess they could not be edited. However, here's properly corrected lyrics:

It's the kiss of the tears stinging and cold,
the sum of the years, the story untold
in the heart of our hearts, the heart of the soul,
at the heart of the hopes and the fears that we've known,
we know, we'll know

We were throwing time away,
breathlessly throwing time away
Oh-oh-oh, throwing time away,
recklessly throwing time away
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh

It's the dawn of the day that surely must come
Married we've stayed but look what's been done
in the heart of our hearts, the heart of the soul,
at the heart of the hopes and the fears that we've known,
we know, we'll know

We were throwing time away,
breathlessly throwing time away
Oh, oh, oh, throwing time away,
recklessly throwing time away
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Rock!

Throwing time away
Throwing time away
Throwing time away
Throwing time away

Minnie Driver – Stars & Satellites Lyrics 6 years ago
Ah, those copyright restrictions :P

Court the darkness like she's your lover
girl you nailed one time and can't get over
Feverish and sleepless at night
it's only because you cannot tear your eyes from her

If love is the answer you seek
you're askin' the wrong kind of question
The wrong kind of question will keep
you askin' me, askin' me for love

And all the stars and satellites give you nothing
'cause all the satellites died

And all the satellites in your atmosphere
they burn for you but you're cold as Mars
I know you see the light in the sky like I do
but for you they're just dying stars

If love is the answer you seek
you're askin' the wrong kind of question
The wrong kind of question will keep
you askin' me, askin' me for love

And all the stars and satellites give you nothing
'cause all the satellites died

I guess there's poetry in a day less life
and profit to be made from your pain
I hope you call me up if you ever get old
I would like to see your face again

If love is the answer you seek
you're askin' the wrong kind of questions
The wrong kind of questions will keep
you askin' me, askin' me for love
you askin' me, askin' me for love
you askin' me, askin' me for love
you askin' me, askin' me for love

If love is the answer you seek
you're asking the wrong kind of questions
If love is the answer you seek
you're asking the wrong kind of questions

If love is the answer you seek
you're asking the wrong kind of questions
If love is the answer you seek
you're asking the wrong kind of questions

An Angle – Oh, Oh, Oh Trouble Lyrics 6 years ago
Well, I press on this pen like it's talkin' to me
as I'm getting rich on something that bounds the soul
Oh, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

As I'm diving in the ocean, get my bones moving
swimming away from something I hate the most
Oh, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

But on land I left you a map
with a letter that's written on it
I said: "Meet me at this address
and I promise you, girl, I won't let you go"

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Well, you look so cute when you're talking to me
as I really think I finally found a friend
And I'll give her my word for what it's worth
I'll travel over this hill and through this mind of mine

And if you cry a lot, it's gonna be all right
because, honey, I think, yeah, that this could be love
And all the good in our hearts
is all the pain that we share when we part

'Cause oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh

Yeah, I feel so out of rope for the very first time in my life
Yeah, I was gonna be some boss
but, my love, I could end it all

I'm that guy that you're talkin' to on the side of your bed
Why are you lookin' up when there's nothing at all?
Well, don't you wake up, yeah, don't you die, yeah

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Emily Haines & the Soft Skeleton – Nothing and Nowhere Lyrics 6 years ago
Lyrics from CD booklet:

Sketch of your faces I still don't know, you aren't permanent, permanent
You want all of our moments stolen
blind alleys and hallways to basements
How are you gonna hide 'til you disappear?
'Cause nothing and nowhere is golden

Apartments are cages, I still don't know what is permanent, permanent
Maybe all my possessions were precious
Truth is, all my possessions I somehow lost them
Been traveling so light, when we're floating by
seems nothing and nowhere is golden

Some say we're lost in space
Some say we're falling off the page
Some say our life is insane
but it isn't insane on paper

Playgrounds are graveyards and all of our scars are permanent, permanent
There's no replacement for places
I'll always love you, you're mine
Numb is the new high, all memories die out
'til nothing and nowhere is golden

Some say we always only wanna get off
Some say our hands are much too soft
Some say our life is insane
but it isn't insane on paper

Some say our hair is in our eyes
Some say we're out of our little minds
Some say our life is insane
but it isn't insane on paper to have to ask

Pull Tiger Tail – Hurricanes Lyrics 6 years ago
On the day that we left, the neighbourhood heart skipped a beat
Oh, the trees folded up and they shook as we drove down the street
I said to myself, "We're finally getting away
When we come back I know that they'll all look the same"

Now let's go to our city
and we'll change over night
We won't think about leaving
Oh, why would we? It's too good a-time

A hurricane hit while we were missing
Oh, can anybody tell me where the damage is?

On the day that we left, the phones and the power were down
Oh, the wind doubled up and it slammed every door in the town
You cried and you screamed 'til you put every faith in the wall
so when it was done, the magic, it left with the storm

Oh, we moved to our city
and we changed all the night
We won't think about leaving
Now, why would we? It's too good a-time

A hurricane hit while we were missing
Oh, can anybody tell me where the damage is?
Above my waistline, beneath my skin
You're not afraid to dig those fingernails in

We're turning to our childhood
I'm so sure now I was there
by the time the winds have erased us
Oh, I may as well have lived here with you as anywhere

A hurricane hit while we were missing
Oh, can anybody tell me where the damage is?
Above my waistline, beneath my skin
She's not afraid to dig those fingernails in

Gossip – Are You That Somebody? (Aaliyah cover) Lyrics 6 years ago
Studio version:

Dirty South, can you really feel me?
East Coast, West Coast
Dirty South, can you really feel me?
East Coast, West Coast

Oh boy, I've been watchin' you like a hawk in the sky at nights
like you were my prey
Boy, I promise you if we keep bumpin' heads
I know that one of these days
(Days)
we can hook it up while we talk on the phone

But see, I don't know if that's good
I've been holdin' back this secret from you
I probably shouldn't let you know

If I, if I let let this go
you can't tell nobody
I'm talkin' 'bout nobody

Are you responsible?
Boy, I gotta watch my body
'cause I'm not just anybody

Is it my go? Is it your go?
Sometimes I'm goody-goody
Right now I'm naughty-naughty

Say yes or say no
'cause I really need somebody
Tell me you're that somebody

Boy, won't you pick me up at the park right now
up the block while everyone sleep?
(Sleep, sleep)
I'll be waitin' there with my twich, my loads, my hat
just so I'm low key

If you tell the world
(Don't sleep, you know that we'll be weak)

Oh boy, see I'm trusting you with my heart, my soul
I probably shouldn't let you know

If I, if I let let this go
you can't tell nobody
I'm talkin' 'bout nobody

Are you responsible?
Boy, I gotta watch my body
'cause I'm not just anybody

Is it my go? Is it your go?
Sometimes I'm goody-goody
Right now I'm naughty-naughty

Say yes or say no

Tell me you're that somebody

If I let let this go

LCD Soundsystem – All My Friends Lyrics 6 years ago
Here's remix version...

That's how it starts:
We go back to your house
you check the charts
and start to figure it out

And if it's crowded, all the better
because we know we're gonna be up late
But if you're worried about the weather
then you picked the wrong place to stay

You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan
and the next five years trying to be with your friends again
You're talking 45 turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, only where are your friends tonight?

Where are your friends tonight?

And so it starts
you switch the engine on
We set controls for the heart of the sun
one of the ways we show our age

And if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up
And if the sun comes up, and I still don't wanna stagger home
then it's the memory of our betters
that's keeping us on our feet

You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan
and the next five years trying to be with your friends again
You're talking 45 turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, only where are your friends tonight?

Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?

It comes apart
the way it does in bad films
except in parts
when the moral kicks in

Though we're running out of the drugs
and the conversation's winding away
oh, I wouldn't trade one stupid decision
for another five years of life

You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan
and the next five years trying to be with your friends again
You're talking 45 turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, only where are your friends tonight?

Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?

If I could be with my friends tonight
If I could be with my friends tonight
If I could be with my friends tonight
If I could be with my friends tonight

If I could be with my friends tonight
If I could be with my friends tonight
If I could be with my friends tonight
If I could be with my friends tonight

Okkervil River – A Hand To Take Hold Of The Scene Lyrics 6 years ago
I'm the band in a show 'bout a man holding hands with his wife
on a therapist couch with his face to the ground after fucking around countless nights
And there's this one episode, close-up cameras were showing him crying
his red head and his red eyes

I'm the band in a show 'bout a boy being buried alive
from his head to his toes by a criminal but with a sensitive soul, with a set of raccoon eyes
And there's this scene in the show when a hustler knows he's gonna die
the ground opens and he climbs inside

And as he speaks his last line a thought falls from his mind
and I pick it up and write it through the TV
Oh, oh
Is there a hand to take hold of the scene?

I'm a man in a dream and they're dancing in front of my eyes
Is the queen informed of the flaws with the eyes all got odd and rumpled into her spine?
She rises up like a yawn, grips my heart like a claw, splits apart like a jaw, like an eye
and she asks me with a sigh

We were so far from right, we were losing the fight
We were letting the light weaken its beam
Oh, oh
Is there a hand to take hold of the scene?

I wanted to smile like a glistening shot of a kiss that's as sharp as a knife
The day expires in the dry, cracked trembling lips God saw fit to put this kiss inside
I lift them up to you, I'd like to bear witness to our life that is fine and is filling the cryingest eyes

Gracing each face that is making the waste that is broken as one's fairly fly
Love that is innocent of that old cynical, covetous, cancerous vibe
and a beauty that annihilates all life

Like it's lived in these nights, holding your hatred tight like a sign that you're right and you're strong
When the doors are shut tight, I will dream you tonight and my dream will just sweep you along
When all the fires are fanned and we're shucking our plans we're too weak to stand on our two feet
Oh, oh
Is there a hand to take hold of the scene?

The Bravery – This Is Not the End Lyrics 6 years ago
First of all: learn the difference between "your" and "you're" (NOT the same thing).

Secondly: I might be having a different version of this song or you still have many mistakes in these lyrics.

Anyway, here's the correction:





Tell me, come on, tell me what you can
even as you wait for death you're wiser than I am
Tell me what does it mean to exist?
I am not a scientist, I must believe in more than this

And I can not accept
that everything that's real
is only what our eyes can see
and our hands can feel

Not even earth can hold us
Not even life controls us
Not even the ground can keep us down

The memories in my head
are just real as the time we spent
You'll always be close to me, my friend
This is not the end

I see, I can see you're so afraid
worried like the silver herd on you, even feel obscured
I wish, I wish I had some words to give
but all that I can think to say is, "I'll be with you everyday"

Not even earth can hold us
Not even life controls us
Not even the ground can keep us down

The memories in my head
are just real as the time we spent
You'll always be close to me, my friend
This is not the end

La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la
This is not the end
La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la
This is not the end
La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la
This is not the end
La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la

I don't care, I don't care what you believe
as long as you are in my heart you're just as real as me
And maybe, maybe even more
someone has touched so many lives and never, never died

Not even earth can hold us
Not even life controls us
Not even the ground can keep us down

The memories in my head
are just real as the time we spent
You'll always be close to me, my friend
This is not the end

La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la
This is not the end
La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la
This is not the end
La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la
La, la-la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la, la

Arctic Monkeys – Temptation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend Lyrics 6 years ago
"I don't ever want to hate you
so don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs"
the first thing that she said

Temptation greets you like your naughty mate
the one that used to get you in bother
but one you could never bring yourself to hate

And she said, "We've got that spark that only lights a fuse
helps you see in the dark, but it's a sight you'll lose
when the temptation greets you like your naughty friend"

I don't ever want to hate you
so don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs
the only ends are dead

Temptation greets you like your naughty mate
one that made you steal and set things on fire
but one you haven't seen of late

And I said that kind of talk
only adds intrigue to the cauldron of thought
It's already exceeding
temptation, the very thing that held her back

I don't ever want to hate you
so don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs
the only ends are dead

I don't ever want to hate you
it's not part of the plan
so keep your charm where I can't see it
and your hands where I can

[Yo, it's rescuing grace, thank you]

Yeah, we used to be tight, me and my naughty friends
caused pure madness in the end
I mean day and night
We robbed, we stole, we loved to fight

Smoking, drinking, drab-riding
drugs, thugs, not law-abiding
Reckless gangsters, no direction
no sign of correction

But then I switched it off, changed my ways
What the hell did I, oh my days
But like my naughty friends, they're not phased
can't believe that this music pays

See no reason why we can't do
all the things that we've always done
Still in my heart I know that's just what
but it's hard to fight the temptation, son

The panic will fall down around you
if you don't do what I say

I don't ever want to hate you
so don't show me your bed
The only roads are cul-de-sacs
the only ends are dead

I don't ever want to hate you
it's not part of the plan
so keep your charm where I can't see it
and your hands where I can

My Darling You! – Bad times are on Lyrics 6 years ago
A few minor corrections (also unsure about the second verse):

Tonight there will be trouble with the cars
and take us, just turn with your summer gods
Even though we're dancing like gods
some of us will wake up behind bars

And if you go to jail, I'll go to jail with you
Together we'll be strong, wait up in my car alone
I'll keep you in my heart although we're worlds apart
Bombs will always fall down and stand up and talk

Last year there was some trouble in the park
The beer was bright, but summer night was dark
We were drunk and our minds were light
but all the shit has sworn it was to find

One of them got up and threw a punch at you
Even though you're done, no harm - that night had lost its charm
So if you go to war, I'll go to war with you
If nothing else comes to mind, I'll wake this fucking sky

Good times are gone and now the bad times are on
You gave up Fosters for rodeo, I'll visit your funeral
Good times are gone and now the bad times are on
You gave up Fosters for rodeo, I'll visit your funeral

Yeah, I know it gets tired - only, where are your friends tonight?

And to tell the truth
oh, this could be the last time
So here we go
like a sales force into the night

And if I made a fool, if I made a fool
if I made a fool on the road, there's always this
And if I'm sued into submission
I can still come home to this

And with a face like a dad and a laughable stand
you can sleep on the plane or review what you said
When you're drunk and the kids look impossibly tanned
you think over and over, "Hey, I'm finally dead"

Oh, if the trip and the plan come apart in your hand
you can turn it on yourself, your ridiculous prop
You forgot what you meant when you read what you said
and you knew you were tired, but then where are your friends tonight?

Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?

If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight

Great Lake Swimmers – Your Rocky Spine Lyrics 6 years ago
I was lost in the lakes
and the shapes that your body makes
that your body makes
that your body makes
that your body makes

And the mountains said I could find you here
they whisper the snow and the leaves in my ear
I traced my finger along your trails
your body was the map, I was lost in there

Floating over your rocky spine
The glaciers made you and now you're mine
Floating over your rocky spine
The glaciers made you and now you're mine

I was moving across your frozen veneer
The sky was dark, but you were clear
Could you feel my footsteps?
And would you shatter, would you shatter? Would you?

And with your soft fingers between my claws
like purity against resolve
I could tell, then and there, we were formed from the clay
and came from the rocks for the earth to display

They told me to be careful up there
where the wind blows a venomous rage through your hair
They told me to be careful up there
where the wind rages through your hair

It looks like that I have a version that slightly differ in lyrics. Anyway, here they are:

Seventy-four, seventy-five
he's getting used to it now
how each one falls away in that hoary light

And they have gone, gone from the edge
gone from the guards and their hands
Was no different today than in years gone by

But he won't come out to light
with his hands so thin and white

Gone from the edge, then he is gone from your eyes
as that splintering wave takes so many lives
Even the hands are gripping the edge of such a waste
Every angel looks dead, every face a lie

But you won't come out tonight
with your hands so thin and white, alive

Seventy-four, seventy-five
Daddy, come back to me now
I would beat them away
I would pull you out

I have washed every cinder from your eyes
and with silver and gold I would adorn you
I'll let it all come out tonight
when they pull me out alive, alive

The Fratellis – Ole Black 'n' Blue Eyes Lyrics 6 years ago
Well, she wants to be a singer in the band
maybe I'll give the girl a hand and a microphone
looks she's all alone
She can bring a friend though she's not my kind of friend
She keeps staring me out with her old black and blue eyes

And I can take her dancing just to give the girl a chance
and I was never that good at being nice when I should
I guess that she'll forgive me
right before she tries to kill me
'cause I sold her on yesterday's

Come take me home, eyes

And I can take her waltzing just so
she could kick my head in
Oh, I do believe I was drunk
and both of my heads had shrunk

I guess her name was Tina
'cause before I'd even seen her
I was lost in her 'what's your name'
And just get me those eyes

Oh, take me home, eyes

And Chelsea said she's got nowhere to go
and if she does, she's getting there slow
And I can help her out but I've got somewhere to be
and that's the very thing when you're dealing with me

Young soul shagger
begging me to bag her
filthy heart and swollen hips
And she said, "Oh, my dearest, I'm not pretty
Isn't it a pity that you won't kiss these rotten lips?"

Oh, take me home, eyes
Old black and blue eyes

And Chelsea said she's got nowhere to go
and if she does, she's getting there slow
And I can help her out but I've got somewhere to be
and that's the very thing when you're dealing with me

Architecture in Helsinki – Heart It Races Lyrics 7 years ago
And we're slow to acknowledge the knots in the laces
Heart, it races
And we go back to where we moved out, to the places
Heart, it races

I bought it in a can and stirred it with my fingers
Do it out the window
Lately you've been tanned, suspicious for the winter
Looks like little splinters

And we're slow to acknowledge the knots in the laces
Heart, it races
And we go back to where we moved out, to the places
Heart, it races

I sold it to a man
and threw him out that window, he went boom
Made his wife a widow

Heart, it races
Heart, it races

Handsome Furs – Handsome Furs Hate This City Lyrics 7 years ago
Woke up with blankets and buildings with jaws
Stuck to the sheets, clammy with noon
We wish for nighttime, a darkening screen
Opened my heart, it's just a machine

And oh, there was home
Oh, there was home

This one is vicious, a sinister lean
We haunted the staircase where small ghosts have been
We knew that heaven was stretched out and wide
pinned to the sky, pinned to the sky

And oh, there was home
Oh, there was home

Oh, oh, life is long and hollow
Oh, oh, life is long and hollow

Oh, oh, life is long and hollow
Oh, oh, life is long and hollow

We hate this city and all its drone
We hate this city and all its drone
We hate this city and all its drone
We hate this city and all its drone

So black out a million screens
and wires on the floor
Baby, we can get you anything you want
anytime you want, but you'll wonder what it's for

So black out a million screams
and wires on the floor
Baby, we can get you anything you want
anytime you want, but you'll wonder what it's for

Maxïmo Park – Girls Who Play Guitars Lyrics 7 years ago
You've been with me
a year to the day
three hundred and sixty-five days
watching me decay

We used to talk about girls who play guitars
We used to talk about plans in tiny bars

In the gaps between words
are the things that really intrigue me
It's the gasps and the sighs
that say more about what's inside you

We used to climb up on a high horse every time
We used to talk about boys with missing spines

It's her life and her life is worth living
(It's her life)
it never struck her to pause for one minute
(It's her life)

The path of excess just led to boredom
You've lived your life with your mouth wide open

It's her life and her life is worth living
(It's her life)
it never struck her just to pause for one minute
(It's her life)

When you lie on my bed and you label me your friend
don't you know how much that hurts?
You could pretend and I wouldn't know
I could be who you wanted in the dark

She goes and she gets drunk
She gets off, she goes and she gives in
She goes and she gets drunk
She gets off, she goes and she gives in

It's her life and her life is worth living
(It's her life)
it never struck her just to pause for one minute
(It's her life)

And her life is worth living

We used to talk about girls who play guitars
We used to talk about girls who play guitars
We used to talk about girls who play guitars
We used to talk about girls who play guitars

Silversun Pickups – Future Foe Scenarios Lyrics 7 years ago
The things we laid do not amount too much
made of abandoned wood, loose stones and such
This revolution, baby
proves who you work for lately

Release the castaways who run amok
from self-appointed winds which blow and such
when present tense gets strangled in the mire
made of our cozy decomposing wires

Who do you work for, baby?
And does it work for you lately?

But when the night is over and the walls start burning
when fire starts to matter and the clock's still churning
cliches and other chatter keeps our minds from learning
Our minds keep learning

It's all right
It's all right

The things we laid do not amount too much
made up of thought balloons and cotton swabs
when present tense gets strangled in the woes
made of our future foe scenarios

This revolution, baby
proves who you work for maybe
Who do you work for, baby?
And does it work for you lately

But when the night is over and the wall start ringing
when fire starts to matter and the clock's still sinking
cliches and other chatter keeps our minds from thinking
our minds keep sinking

It's all right

It's all right

It's all right

It's all right

That's when it turned on me
a motorcade of meant-to-be's
parade of beauty queens
where soft entwines make kindling

These many detailed things
like broken nails and plastic rings
will win by keeping me
from speaking to my new darling

And there's no way to know
our future foe scenarios
That's when it turned on me
when bobby pins hold angel wings

It's all right

It's all right

It's all right

It's all right

It's all right

It's all right

The Explorers Club – Forever Lyrics 7 years ago
She's the kind of girl who's in my thoughts, oh why?
And she's the kind of girl who makes you want, oh why?
But she'll never know how I feel deep inside
Every time I think of her I cry

She's the kind of girl who brings her love so true
and it's the kind of love that makes me feel so blue
'cause she'll never know how I feel deep inside
Every time I think of her I cry

We could last forever
but baby don't you cry
We could last forever
but baby don't you cry
We could last forever
but baby don't you cry
We could last forever
but baby don't you cry

We could last forever
but baby don't you cry
We could last forever
but baby don't you cry

The Detroit Cobras – As Long As I Have You Lyrics 7 years ago
Just a few minor changes:

Born in darkness
but I fought my way up to the sun
Had a lot of battles
some I lost and some I've won

Let me tell you, boy
you ain't seen nothing yet
There's nothing in this world
that I can't get
as long as I have you
(Long as I have you)
long as I have you
(Long as I have you)
long as I have you

Give me mountains to crumble
and I'll turn them to sand
Let me put this world
in the palm of your hand

Seen the sadness
but I sang my way out of the blues
Had to learn to stand up
even when they scared me out of my shoes

Let me tell you, boy
you ain't seen nothing yet
There's nothing in this world
that I can't get
as long as I have you
(Long as I have you)
long as I have you
(Long as I have you)
long as I have you

Give me mountains to crumble
and I'll turn them to sand
Let me put this world
in the palm of your hand

Say you love me
and I know that half the battle is won
Don't you worry about nothing
in your mind the best is yet to come

Let me tell you, boy
you ain't seen nothing yet
There's nothing in this world
that I can't get
as long as I have you
(Long as I have you)
long as I have you
(Long as I have you)
long as I have you
(Long as I have you)

Won't have to cry no more
(Long as I have you)
All my troubles will be over
(Long as I have you)
Long as I have you, baby
(Long as I have you)
Long as I have you, baby
(Long as I have you)
Long as I have you
(Long as I have you)
Long as I have you, baby
(Long as I have you)
Long as I have you, baby

Long as I have you

Get Him Eat Him – 2x2 Lyrics 7 years ago
It's a familiar sound, we're under attack
We're gonna stand our ground, they're beating us back
And don't take that tack, we'll take them on

Lay at best offense
You'll wanna tear the whole damn all of you down
get back the bastards who kept you silent
and set you up

We're gonna take them down
they'll never come back
We're gonna take this town
and launch an attack

So fight back, it's too late to call a truce
You can't turn around after you're turned loose
And we're making tracks that go 2x2
2, what more can we do?

Yeah, we can turn it around
you can't give up now
You won't figure it out
shake off the shackles

Sing it now, "I won't go quiet, I won't go home"

So don't you turn around, we're leaving intact
We're gonna face this down, and never look back
So don't take that tack, we'll take them on

Come along
We were right, they were wrong
We invade, we are strong
and we're taking them on

We have a say, "There's a will, there's a way"
If we fight, if we stay we can still win the day

Switches – Testify Lyrics 7 years ago
I really like to see ya, wouldn't wanna be ya
Your picture in my wallet was there before I bought it
Monday slipped inside my world
Stay close to me, sporadically
I was selling my thoughts to the night

I don't care what you say 'cause I won't testify my love
Yeah, I don't care what you do 'cause I won't testify my love

Even though I know ya, I wouldn't wanna show ya
Take away my heart again, leave me with a cold brain
Tuesday slipped inside my world
Depression on me, consecutively
I was selling my thoughts to the night

I don't care what you say 'cause I won't testify my love
Yeah, I don't care what you do 'cause I won't testify my love

Yeah, 'cause I don't wanna testify, testify
so I'm not gonna testify, testify
I'm too high to testify, testify, testify high

(Do it)

I don't care what you say 'cause I won't testify my love
I don't care what you do 'cause I won't testify my l-love

Yeah, 'cause I don't wanna testify, testify
so I'm not gonna testify, testify
I can't try to testify, testify, testify high

"We are not in a position to display these lyrics due to licensing restrictions.
Sorry for the inconvinience."

Gee, what a bummer.

=>

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh

Oh, I don't know, I don't know, oh, where to begin
We are North Americans
And for those of you who still think we're from England
we're not, no

We've been on planes been on trains 'til we think we might die
far from North America
where the buildings are old and you might have lots of mimes
Uh-huh, oh, oh

I hate that feeling when you're looking at me that way
'cause we're North Americans
but if we act all shy it'll make it okay
it makes it go away

Oh, I don't know, I don't know, oh, where to begin
when we're North American
but in the end make the same mistakes all over again
Come on, North America

We are North American scum
We're from North America

And all the kids, all the kids they want to make a scene
here in North America
Well, now your kids get to read it in your magazines
We don't have those

So where's the love, where's the love, where's the love, where's the love?
Where's the love tonight?
But there's no love, man
There's no love and the kids are uptight
Oh, oh

So throw a party 'til the cops come in and bust it up
Let's go, North Americans
Are you planning it?
I didn't mean to interrupt
Sorry

I did it once, and my parents got pretty upset
Freaked out in North America
But then I said, "The more I do it the better it gets"
Let's rock, North America

We are North American scum
We're from North America
We are North American scum
We are North American

New York's the greatest if you get someone to pay the rent
Wahoo, North America
And it's the furtherest you can live from the government
Uh-huh, huh

Some proud American Christians might disagree
here in North America
but New York's the only place we're keeping them off the streets
Boo-hoo

Now we can't have parties like in Spain where they go all night
Shut down in North America
Or like Berlin where they go another night
All right
Uh-huh, uh-huh

You see, I love this place that I've grown to know
All right, North America
And yeah, I know you wouldn't touch us with a ten-foot-pole
'cause we're North Americans

We are North American scum
We are North Americans
We are North American scum
We are North American

Take me back to the States, man
North American scum
Where can we be one of a billion
North American
Where the DJ gigs aren't as fun
Here in North American scum
Don't blame the Canadians
Let's go, North America

Pela – Lost to the Lonesome Lyrics 7 years ago
Just a few minor corrections:

Hey, we should crash the party on Christmas Eve
Hey, we should write our name on every wall we please
Hey, we should break our wallets at every bar
Hey, we could break the bed with our broken hearts

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la

And we could leave the lonely and lost to their lonesome hearts, yeah

And don't just stand there with your face in your hands
And don't just stand there, clean up your broken glass
Hey

Hey, we could crash the party on New Year's Eve
Hey, and we could write our name on every wall we see

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la

And we could leave the lonely and lost to their lonesome hearts, yeah

And don't just stand there like a ghost in my room
And don't just stand there with that same old T.V. set
And don't just stand there pointing out west
And don't just stand there telling me I'm nothing

So don't just stand there, just tell me I'm something
So don't just stand there, just tell me I'm something
So don't just stand there, just tell me I'm something
So don't just stand there, just tell me, just tell me 'cause I'm something

Findlay Brown – Losing The Will to Survive (Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve Reanimation) Lyrics 7 years ago
Here's single version lyrics:

Have you ever been alone
where the wind runs, skips and moans
and a man comes in your way
telling you it's time to pray?

Everybody's got illusions
Everybody talks so tall
Everybody draws conclusions
but they make no sense at all

Everybody's got a reason to be there
when they're down on their luck
losing the will to survive, boy

Have you ever seen them cry
with a love they won't deny
and a man gets in their way
telling all it's time to pray?

Everybody's got illusions
Everybody talks so tall
Everybody draws conclusions
but they make no sense at all

Everybody's got a reason to be there
when they're down on their luck
losing the will to survive, boy

Have you ever gone revind
stolen diamonds from the mine?
Then a man comes in your way
telling you it's time to pray

Everybody's got illusions
Everybody talks so tall
Everybody draws conclusions
but they make no sense at all

Everybody's got a reason to be there
when they're down on their luck
losing the will to survive, boy
The will to survive, boy
The will to survive, boy
The will to survive, boy

Have you ever been revived
your possesion thrown aside
and a man comes in your way
telling you it's time to pray?

Everybody's got illusions
Everybody talks so tall
Everybody draws conclusions
but they make no sense at all

Everybody's got a reason to be there
when they're down on their luck
losing the will to survive, boy
