I feel like singing......

Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 11:28 AM

I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
Because at 5 o'clock they take me to the gallows pole.
The sands of time for me are running low.

When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I take a look through the bars at the last sights,
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.

Can it be that there's some sort of error?
Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
It's not easy to stop from screaming,
But words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears fall but why am I crying?
After all I'm not afraid of dying.
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
If there's a God then why has he let me go?

As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul because it's willing to fly away

Mark my words please believe my soul lives on
Please don't worry now that I have gone
I've gone beyond to see the truth

When you know that your time is close at hand,
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion.

Hallowed be Thy name.

    I watched you walk away
    Hopeless, with nothing to say
    I strain my eyes
    Hoping to see you again

    This is my curse (the longing)
    This is my curse (time)
    This is my curse (the yearning)
    This is my curse

    There is love burning to find you
    Will you wait for me?
    Will you be there?

    Your silence haunts me
    But I still hunger for you

    This is my curse (the wanting)
    This is my curse (time)
    This is my curse (the needing)
    This is my curse

    There is love burning to find you
    Will you wait for me?

    And still I want
    And still I ache
    But still I wait
    To see you again

    Dying, inside, these walls

    And I see your face in these tears
    In these tears
    And I see your face...

    There is love

    New blood joins this earth
    And quickly he's subdued
    Through constant pain disgrace
    The young boy learns their rules
    With time the child draws in
    This whipping boy done wrong
    Deprived of all his thoughts
    The young man struggles on and on he's known
    A vow unto his own
    That never from this day
    His will they'll take away

    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never be
    Never see
    Won't see what might have been
    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never free
    Never me
    So I dub thee unforgiven

    They dedicate their lives
    To running all of his
    He tries to please them all
    This bitter man he is
    Throughout his life the same
    He's battled constantly
    This fight he cannot win
    A tired man they see no longer cares
    The old man then prepares
    To die regretfully
    That old man here is me

    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never be
    Never see
    Won't see what might have been
    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never free
    Never me
    So I dub thee unforgiven

    You labeled me
    I'll label you
    So I dub thee unforgiven
    *my pain is caused by my pleasure*

    Sometimes we only live for the here and now
    Sometimes we're lonely
    Sometimes we feel we need a place to be grounded
    Or fly away again

    I will fly away again
    Oh, I will fly away again

    I feel rain pouring down
    I wait to rot away
    Live again
    Here forever
    The spiral never ends

    Why are we feeling something's familiar around us?
    Are we just dreaming?
    Always we search for the answers but nothing is found
    We'll fly away again

    I will fly away again
    Oh, I will fly away again

    I feel rain pouring down
    I wait to rot away
    Live again
    Here forever
    The spiral never ends

    Rot away
    Live again
    Here forever
    The spiral never ends

    I feel rain pouring down
    I wait to rot away
    Live again
    Here forever
    The spiral never ends

    Rot away
    Live again
    Here forever
    The spiral never ends

    It never ends

    I will fly away again
    Oh, I will fly away again

    Have we lost the spark or guide?
    What's the latest on the screen?
    Can't be too late to turn around
    I need all the help from you

    I need to find
    Something to blame for a long lost time

    I am running from something that I don't know
    I am searching for something, which way to go?
    I am trying to separate what's real
    I'm running in a wheel

    Is it dark or is it bright?
    What's the latest on the screen?
    Please tell me my name
    I haven't checked it today

    I am running from something that I don't know
    I am searching for something, which way to go?
    I am trying to separate what's real
    I'm running in a wheel

    From green to red our days pass by
    Waiting for a sign to tell us why
    Are we dancing all alone?

    Collect some stars to shine for you
    And start today 'cause there's only a few
    A sign of times my friend

    My friend, avoid infinity
    Are you for real?

    Just scratch the surface
    And you will find
    Something to blame for a long lost time

    From green to red our days pass by
    Waiting for a sign to tell us why
    Are we dancing all alone?

    Collect some stars to shine for you
    And start today 'cause there's only a few
    A sign of times my friend

    Just scratch the surface
    And you will find
    Something to blame for a long lost time

    From green to red our days pass by
    Waiting for a sign to tell us why
    Are we dancing all alone?

    Collect some stars to shine for you
    And start today 'cause there's only a few
    A sign of times my friend

    Can you put the name and artist, along with, as you are singing?

  6. Re: I feel like singing......

    Mon, Jul 30, 2012 at 12:55 PM

    I kinda like that there's no artist name listed. No preconceptions. Allows you to appreciate the lyrics on their own merit.

    I Don't Want Feel Anymore
    It's Easier To Keep Falling

    Emptiness.....All Tomorrows

    Haunted By Your Ghost...

    Lay Down, Black Gives Way To Blue
    Lay Down, I'll Remember You

    Fading Out By Design
    Conciously Avoiding Changes
    Curtain's Drawn Now It's Done
    Silencing All Tomorrows,

    Forcing A Goodbye...

    Lay Down, Black Gives Way To Blue
    Lay Down, I'll Remember You

    One more step and I could fall away
    If it happened would it matter?
    And I can't tell if I should go or stay
    Same old picture feels so hollow

    How can anybody know what's best for me?
    Another page I turn in shame
    And my decisions brought me to my knees
    I needed someone to blame

    I feel so hollow
    I feel so hollow
    Time to do what's best for me
    I believe I can change

    Once upon a time in broken dreams
    Reflections that I can't face
    So hold your breath and make a wish for me
    Take me to a better place

    Time always seems to be passing by
    It never waits for me
    If I could do it all one more time
    I wouldn't change a thing

    I feel so hollow
    (Feel so hollow)
    I feel so hollow
    (Feel so hollow)

    I feel so hollow
    (Feel so hollow)
    I feel so hollow
    (Feel so hollow)

    Time to do what's best for me
    I believe I can change

    The beast in me
    Is caged by frail and fragile bars
    Restless by day
    And by night rants and rages at the stars
    God help the beast in me

    The beast in me
    Has had to learn to live with pain
    And how to shelter from the rain
    And in the twinkling of an eye
    Might have to be restrained
    God help the beast in me

    Sometimes it tries to kid me
    That it's just a teddy bear
    And even somehow manage to vanish in the air
    And that is when I must beware
    Of the beast in me that everybody knows
    They've seen him out dressed in my clothes
    Patently unclear
    If it's New York or New Year
    God help the beast in me

    The beast in me

    Long fat green, love what you do, so young must be nice
    Roll first class, limousine drool, packed house every night

    Hey rock star, got a cold beer? Sure you don't mind do you?
    Ain't life sweet, party non-stop, 24/7 - cool

    So proud would be your mother
    Anything you want, pick your lover
    From here looks so fine
    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    Live your dream, walk in those shoes, trade with you any time
    Worldwide name, freedom much fame, spinning gold song and rhyme

    So proud would be your mother
    Anything you want, pick your lover
    From here looks so fine
    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    Play, get paid, couple sports cars, sure you done paid your dues
    Big house own, no boss fun, lucky fuck wish I was you

    So proud would be your mother
    Anything you want, pick your lover
    From here looks so fine
    My god how your star shines

    Dying inside

    My god how your star shines

    Endangered species, caged in fright
    Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight
    The stage is set, now pay the price
    And ego boost, don't think twice

    Technology, the battle's unfair
    You pull the hammer without a care
    Squeeze the trigger that makes you man
    Pseudo-safari, the hunt is canned
    The hunt is canned

    All are gone, all but one
    No contest, nowhere to run
    No more left, only one
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction

    Tell the truth, you wouldn't dare
    The skin and trophy, oh, so rare
    Silence speaks louder than words
    Ignore the guilt and take your turn

    Liars anagram is lairs
    Man you were never even there
    Killed a few feet from the cages
    Point blank, you're so courageous
    So courageous

    All are gone, all but one
    No contest, nowhere to run
    No more left, only one
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction

    One hour from now
    Another species of life form
    Will disappear off the face of the planet
    Forever and the rate is accelerating

    All are gone, all but one
    No contest, nowhere to run
    No more left, only one
    This is it, this is the countdown to extinction

    "An extremely quiet child" they called you in your school report
    "He's always taken interest in the subjects that he's taught"
    So what was it that brought the squad car screaming up your drive
    To notify your parents of the manner in which you died

    At St. Patricks every Sunday, Father Fletcher heard your sins
    "Oh, he's unconcerned with competition he never cares to win"
    But blood stained a young hand that never held a gun
    And his parents never thought of him as their troubled son

    "Now you'll never get to Heaven" Mama said
    Remember Mama said
    Ticking, ticking
    "Grow up straight and true blue
    Run along to bed"
    Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking

    They had you holed up in a downtown bar screaming for a priest
    Some gook said "His brain's just snapped" then someone called the police
    You'd knifed a Negro waiter who had tried to calm you down
    Oh you'd pulled a gun and told them all to lay still on the ground
    Promising to hurt no one, providing they were still
    A young man tried to make a break, with tear-filled eyes you killed
    That gun butt felt so smooth and warm cradled in your palm
    Oh your childhood cried out in your head "they mean to do you harm"

    "Don't ever ride on the devil's knee" Mama said
    Remember mama said
    Ticking, ticking
    "Pay your penance well, my child
    Fear where angels tread"
    Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking

    Within an hour the news had reached the media machine
    A male caucasian with a gun had gone berserk in Queens
    The area had been sealed off, the kids sent home from school
    Fourteen people lying dead in a bar they called the Kicking Mule
    Oh they pleaded to your sanity for the sake of those inside
    "Throw out your gun, walk out slow just keep your hands held high"
    But they pumped you full of rifle shells as you stepped out the door
    Oh you danced in death like a marionette on the vengeance of the law

    "You've slept too long in silence" Mama said
    Remember Mama said
    Ticking, ticking
    "Crazy boy, you'll only wind up with strange notions in your head"
    Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking
