Today I set aside a friend
But still I wait for dead
Before this takes time from me
We can all just see
Beginning
The first time that we're inside
You, you told me nothing
So I know you lied
We know it

It's the same, but it's OK in your eyes
Now outside these lines
Through your own eyes never lies

Why can't you believe
I want it all back, all back
Still you showed your sleeves
I want it all back, all back

You know it's coming
I caught you dick in hand
Please don't say nothing, you'll box yourself again
It's nice just to be right again
But you sacrificed a friend, you're the ony shit I know, you knew it
It's all right, change your own words
Tell the truth inside me
Never seen

[Chorus]

There's some that you've wronged
There's some that you set free
There's some that deny
There's some that fall on their knees

Today I set aside a friend
But still I wait for dead
Before this takes time from me
We can all just see
Beginning
The first time that we're inside
You, you told me nothing
So I know you lied
We know it

    great song, kinda hard to understand it, but still this is another badass song from Nothingface....these guys keep making this fucking awesome music, they deserve so much more credit

    BTW - zztzed, you forgot a part at the very end of the song....

    "I know I'll be alone again You hated me I can't take steps towards God If you keep on holding me back"

    yeah and thats the best part of the whole song fucking awesome song

    For me.. this song is about a misguided friend i had that often times presuaded me to sin which compromised my relationship with God... thus a Godstopper.

    I don't really think Matt from Nothingface is really big into god. As with most music, you can talk a song your own way, which is always cool, but Nothingface has taken some stances against religion in the past at live shows. So stillife, you can take it as you want, but I really don't believe this song is pro-god.

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.

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."
