    To be a rock and not to roll

    Don't make me chase you even doves have pride

    3 6 9 the goose drank wine
    the monkey chewed tobacco on the street car line
    the line broke the monkey got choked
    and we all went to heaven in a little row boat!

    But I can't see
    And in my mind
    I'm a, blind man doin' time
    Look to my future
    Cause my past is all behind me
    Is it a crime
    To fight for what is mine..

    U2 - One

    Love is a temple
    Love a higher law
    Love is a temple
    Love the higher law
    You ask me to enter
    But then you make me crawl
    And I can't be holding on
    To what you got
    When all you got is hurt

    One love
    One blood
    One life
    You got to do what you should
    One life
    With each other
    Sisters
    Brothers
    One life
    But we're not the same
    We get to
    Carry each other
    Carry each other

    George Michael - Praying For Time

    And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
    Hanging on to hope
    When there is no hope to speak of
    And the wounded skies above say it's much too much too late
    Well maybe we should all be praying for time

    These are the days of the empty hand
    Oh you hold on to what you can
    And charity is a coat you wear twice a year

    This is the year of the guilty man
    Your television takes a stand
    And you find that what was over there is over here

    So you scream from behind your door
    Say what's mine is mine and not yours
    I may have too much but I'll take my chances
    'Cause God's stopped keeping score
    And you cling to the things they sold you
    Did you cover your eyes when they told you
    That he can't come back
    'Cause he has no children to come back for

    It's hard to love there's so much to hate
    Hanging on to hope when there is no hope to speak of
    And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
    So maybe we should all be praying for time

    Sorry to copy and paste just about the whole damn song on both occassions, but each lyric was superior to the last and I couldn't just copy out a snippet of One or Praying For Time.

    The whole portions of both songs deserve to be there.

    Great lyric that one....Californication's just an awesome song.

    Muse - Megalomania. About the corruption of some areas of organised religion. The fact that its played on a church organ just makes it all the more powerful and moving.

    Paradise comes at a price
    That I am not prepared to pay
    What were we built for?
    Could someone tell me please

    The good news is, she can't have babies
    And wont accept gifts from me
    What are they for?
    They'll just grow up, and break the laws you've loved

    Take off your disguise
    I know that underneath it's me

    Useless device, it wont suffice
    I want a new game to play
    When I am gone
    It won't be long, before I disturb you in the dark

    Paradise comes at a price
    That I am not prepared to pay
    What were we built for?
    Will someone tell me please

    Take off your disguise
    I know that underneath it's me

    Rave down, hit the ground
    Before the pistol crack spins me out sideways
    Like the sharp hard hit of a car crash in a dream
    There's kids on the corner wanna
    Beat-box my brains to bits
    You can't cut creed clean
    Things ain't black or white like they seem

    Rave down, hit the ground

    4 AM all night hell gas station
    Before we cruise off to the beach
    Where the breeze blows easy and slow
    We hung tight all night and no gig to go to
    There could be something happenin' here
    But there's just no place to go
    Your town ain't lively up no more
    Rave Down

    Deep hot sun burns through the city
    Yeah, they're havin' to peel
    The pedestrians off the walls
    Ex-cop 'round the block
    Rockin' chair, suckin' beer
    He blasts flies with his gun
    Because swatting's no fun
    Your town ain't hypin' up no more
    Rave down
    Rave down, hit the ground
    rave down, hit the ground

    EJECTOR SEAT RESERVATION

    Not going down in a ball of fire
    Just 'cause the wings won't reach any higher
    And I'm the psychotic tripping in the aisles
    Sheet rain on the window pain
    Now at the bar, gnashing and gurning
    And never quite turning
    As the hostess turns to me and jokes:
    At least you've always got a good tale to tell
    When you die well
    I keep crashing out and dreaming about
    Black African goddesses in white western underwear
    So there
    And when you say everybody is a star in the end
    Then the greatest star****er's your boyfriend who says
    I've always loved the smell of your blood
    Don't ask me why, I don't try
    We're so earthbound in every town
    And everybody's got a right to a will to want to live
    And a right to want to die

    Please help us back on to our feet
    Escort us to the ejector seats

    And I'm alive! I can't seem to hide it
    Got people calling out my name and everything
    Death by chandelier
    She says Death by chandelier!
    It falls on my head and I'm dead
    And that's how I want to die
    Don't ask me why, I don't try
    But if my lights are gonna blow
    Then that's the end of the show
    The fuzzy end of the lollipop's yours to suck
    I don't wanna here anymore
    And just don't tell me the Fulham score

    Please help me back on to my feet
    Reserve me the ejector seat
    Go away Go away
    Take me to Nirvana or Shangri-la
    And somewhere on my journey I saw everything

    Not going down in a ball of fire
    A little man sitting on my shoulder
    Top hat and tails and he carries a folder
    And written within is a list of the men
    Who went down before me
    Am I not going down?
    It's like Carry On Through The Clouds
    It's like flying with Satan sharing the navigation
    And he keeps grabbin' hold of the controls

    Please help me back on to my feet
    Reserve me the ejector seat
    Go away Go away
    Fly me to Nirvana or Shangri-la
    Somewhere on my journey I saw everything
    Where the songs do grow
    And the flowers can sing

    HARRY AND MAGGIE

    I was born on a close street down a hill
    The trees that line the street
    Could sense the winter change
    They felt the chill
    They ducked and dived
    And so we knew that they were alive
    Until the year the silver rain came down
    The trees turned mauve
    And so did my hands
    Oh, and the sound . . .
    There was no sound and I'm freezing in the sun
    Nobody cares to hide the dopeheads and the suicides
    'Cause everyone freezes in the sun
    And it's fallin' away

    I kicked around with Harry
    Who lived near Salisbury Plain
    He worked on the cathedral there every now and again
    He worked with stone, carved with stone
    Odd jobs on the telephone
    One sunny day he was sent to the Houses of Parliament
    chipping' away at the gargoyles
    Under the blistering sun
    He carved out "Maggie Sucks" on the backs of every one
    And so in five-hundred years
    There's gonna be some history here
    After it all subsides in the sun

    And it's fallin' away
    And I don't wanna know
    I'm glad I don't know
    What's draggin' it under

    Another day, another loon
    A new pied piper calls the tune
    So blow it up, watch it explode
    Noah's ark on overload
    Wrestle with the results and throw 'em round the ring
    Everybody knows there ain't no rules in wrestling
    (everybody knows there ain't no rules)
    The referee's a dupe
    Who only old ladies and children believe
    I'm getting up now to leave
    I'll go back to that street someday
    The air's better there anyway
    Though the trees are still gonna freeze in the sun

    And it's fallin' away
    And I don't wanna know
    I'm glad I don't know
    What's draggin' it under

    LAST TRAIN TO SATANSVILLE

    You look like you've been losin' sleep
    Said a stranger on a train
    I fixed him with an ice cold stare and said
    I've been havin' those dreams again
    In one dream there's this girl I love
    And we dance every wakin' breath
    And in the other they've thrown me in a cell
    And they're tryin' me for her death
    I'm only young and young in love
    As I hold that girl today
    But I'm old and tired and in the cell
    And I've nigh on withered away
    Y'see my baby' gone away too long
    And I'm chokin' back the tears
    Disheveled star in a burnt out bar
    And I'm talkin' in my drink
    She promised me the world and more
    How could she do this to me?
    And now mine's tumblin' down around
    But at least my eyes can see
    And those stars in the sky are for me

    So as this fagged-out tinsel town
    Waves so-long to the sun
    I lay here calmly on my bed
    And the trigger of my gun
    And should that no good woman show up
    Dancin' from a dream
    I'll squeeze it twice and not think twice
    And relish every scream
