Joku vaihtaa öisin lähikauppojemme nimiä,
äidit synnyttävät lapsia joiden puhetta emme ymmärrä,
kuka hiippailee pois Suomi-neidon aitan liepeiltä,
neidon jonka kupeet huokuvat, nyt, ikuista kylmyyttä.

Ja se mies,
Jussi seisoo yksin suon laidalla,
on kuokka pudonnut,
räkä valuu hikisellä poskella.
Eikä mies tiedä mitä tehdä, mihin mennä nyt,
on sillä kylmää, kylmää kuten sisälläni on.

CHORUS:
Mutta minä olen ja elän ja hengitän,
yhtä suurta jumalaa,
elämänhalua.
Sen temppeleinä toimivat kapakat, ilotalot,
markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.
Mutta minä olen ja elän ja hengitän,
yhtä suurta jumalaa,
elämänhalua.
Sen temppeleinä toimivat kapakat, ilotalot,
markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.

Katson ulos ikkunasta,
en näe iloa täällä.
Levinneitä hiekkalaatikoita,
räkäisiä lähikapakoita.
Joista yksinhuoltajat raahaavat yhden yön toivoja,
jotka poistuvat aamulla,
ennen kuin lapset heräävät.

Anna minulle kätesi,
anna lupaus huomisesta,
lupaa etten yksin jää tähän,
kylmään elämään.
Tähän päivään jossa kaikuvat patsaisen jylhät äänet,
jossa syntynyt kulkee kuolleena,
etsien hautapaikkaansa.

CHORUS

Niin kaunis on kuun sirppi,
niin raikas on syksyn sateen jälkeinen tuoksu.

Kuka täällä komentaa?
ketä täällä totellaan?
Kahta suurta jumalaa,
ahneutta ja rahaa.
Joiden temppeleinä toimivat pörssit ja ilotalot,
markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.
Kuka täällä komentaa?
ketä täällä totellaan?
Kahta suurta jumalaa,
ahneutta ja rahaa.
Joiden temppeleinä toimivat pörssit ja ilotalot,
markkinat, marketit, kaupunkien värivalot.

CHORUS

    At night, someone changes our shops names Mothers give birth to children, who cannot speak Who steps away from maiden of finlands home maiden that, breats now radiate eternal freeze

    And it's man, jussi, stands alone at hes field Has dropped hes hoe, snot falls from hes cheek And man does not know, what to do, where to go Hes is freezing, as he has cold inside of hes

    But i'am and i live and i breathe One great god, joy of life It's temples are bars, whorehouses Markets, shops, coloured lights of cities

    I watch out of window, i see no joy here Broken playgrounds, dirty pubs Where singleparents drag one night "jobs" That leave at morning, before kids awake

    Give me your hand, give promise of tomorrow Promise, that i won't have to be alonem in this cold life On this day, where bold voices of statues echo Where born walks as dead, searching hes gravestone

    Chorus

    So beautiful is moon So fresh is smell after autumnrain

    Who commands here, who we obay here Two great gods, Greed and money Whose temples are Banks and Whorehouses Markets, shops, Colourlights of cities

Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.
