Sisters of Mercy
Your faith is not faithful
Your grace shows no grace
Your mercy shows no mercy
Is there no way out of this place

Thereæ?¯ a baby crying
In a dark and
Dangerous place
Sheæ?¯ imprisoned by no
Fear grips her tiny face
In gods house she
Held a hostage
By a cruel and
Heartless mob
Thereæ?¯ some rule they
Think godæ?¯
And it justifies their job

Sisters of mercy
Daughters of hell
They always weave
Their web of lies
And wrap you in their
Wicked spell
Sisters of mercy
Masters of pain
They try to crucify your
And do it in gods name

Thereæ?¯ a baby
Sobbing softly
In a crib thatæ?¯ now
A cage
Sheæ?¯ done nothing to
Deserve this
But it sanctifies their

They use god like heæ?¯ a
Only for a chosen few
Then hide behind pious
Like the guilty always do

Sisters of mercy
Mothers of shame
A baby only gets to
Heaven is sheæ?¯ baptized in his
Sisters of Mercy
Daughter of war
These chicks administer
Your penance
While the devil guards
Their door

Your faith is not faithful
Your grace has no
Your mercy shows no
Is there no way out of
This place

Thereæ?¯ a baby whoæ?¯ a
Sometimes tears run down her face

As she wonders should
She fight
Or simply disappear from
The race
If sheæ?¯ only
One lesson
Itæ?¯ pride comes before
A fall
The karma train waits
For no man
But god waits for us all

Sisters of mercy
Twisters of truth
I cannot condemn you or
Forgiver you
For your sins done in gods

Sisters of mercy
Daughters of Cain
I see your wilted
Powers fading
Left like rags out
In the rain

Sisters of mercy
Mothers of hell
Your mercy has no
Is there no way out of
This place
Your grace shows no
Your mercy shows no
Is there no way out of
This place
Is there no way out of
This place

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
