Careful What You Wish For Lyrics

Artist : EMINEM
Album : Relapse

[Verse 1]
So this is it...
This is what I wished for
Just isn't how I envisioned it
Feigned to the point of imprisonment
I just thought the shit'd be different
But something changed
The minute that I got a whiff of it
I started to inhale it
Smell it
Started sniffin' it
And it became my cocaine
I just couldn't quit
I just wanted a little bit
Then it turned me (in) to a monster
I became a hypocrite
Concert after concert

I was raking in the dough
Rolling in green
Had the game hemmed up
Like a sewing machine
But I was losing my freedom
There was no where for me
To not go and be seen
And just go and be me
And there was no in-between
You either loved it or hate it

Every CD critics gave it a 3, then 3
Years later, they'd go back and re-rate it
And call the Slim Shady LP the greatest
The Marshall Mathers was a classic
The Eminem Show was fantastic
But Encore just didn't have the caliber to match it
I guess enough time just ain't passed, yet
A couple more years, that shit'll be ill-matic
And eight years later, I'm still at it
Divorce, re-married
A felon
A father
Sleeping pill addict
And this is real talk
I feel like the Incredible Hulk
My back has been broke, and I can still walk

[Chorus]
So be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
And if you get it then you just might not know
What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
Come back on you ten-fold

I said

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
And if you get it then you just might not know
What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
Come back on you ten-fold

[Verse 2]
I got a letter from a fan, that said
He's been praying for me
Every day and for some reason
It's been weighing on my mind heavy
'Cause I don't read every
Letter I get, but something told me to go ahead and open it, but
Why would someone pray for you when they don't know you?
You didn't pray for me when I was local
And as I lay these vocals
I think of all the shit I had to go through
Just to get to where I'm at
I've already told you at least

A thousand times in these rhymes
I appreciate the prayer, but I've already got
God on my side
And it's been one hell of a ride, hasn't it?
Just watchin' it from an opposite standpoint
Man, boy's got to look
Nuts
And that's the only word I can think of right now
On how
To describe the shit
This is like a vibe you get
Go ahead and bob to it
Just watch what you wish for, 'cause I got the shit

[Chorus]
So be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
And if you get it then you just might not know
What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
Come back on you ten-fold

I said

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
And if you get it then you just might not know
What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
Come back on you ten-fold

Five bad boys with the power to rock you
Blowing your mind so you gotta get into

But I really need to know

Do you wanna get down
Do you wanna get funky
Do you wanna get down
Get on down

Slam dunk da funk, put it up

You gotta shoot, pass, slam baby time to set it off
I'll be up, up away, above the rim and hook a shot
Ally oop, baby, whoop, there it is and now I gotcha
Three seconds left, it's just enuff for me to rock ya
Now check it, how I flip it rock a beat 'cause

You wanna know what hits you like a fork lift truck
We got J, AB, Rich, Sean and Scott rocking the extra
Curricular ladies love particular fella
Who knock da meter get the boom shake regular
Five bad boys, honey no, we don't quit til we hit
The rebound sound with a kick
So come on everybody, everybody in tune
As I boomshake n' rock a body

Push it in, pull it out to the beat

[Chorus:]
Slam dunk da funk, put it up

(If you got that feeling)
Slam dunk da funk, put it up

Yeah, I like that, You know what I mean,
You're looking kinda fly tonight girl, What's up, Check it!

Baby when the lights go out, I'll show you what it's all about
Coming at you girl, You know you I like this girl, Here we go!

I ain't sorry for the way I feel,
I know you think I'm being insincere,
From the way I'm treating you,
I never wanted to be so unkind,
The only one thing on my mind,
Is just kicking it with you girl!

Baby it's not the way I feel, you know you must believe me,
Baby it's not part of the deal, Oh, No, No!

[Chorus]
Baby when the lights go out, Every single word cannot express,
The love and tenderness, I'll show you what it's all about,
Babe I swear you will succumb to me, So baby come to me,
When the lights go out!

I know you think it may be just a lie,
Ain't no use in putting up a fight,
Cos my heart is set on you,
I see the truth its in your eyes,
I ain't fooled by your thin disguise,
I can see I'm getting through babe!

Girl don't deny the way you feel, You know you've gotta trust me,
Give a chance to prove I'm real, Oh, Yeah, Yeah!

[Chorus]
Baby when the lights go out, Every single word cannot express,
The love and tenderness, I'll show you what it's all about,
Babe I swear you will succumb to me, So baby come to me,
When the lights go out! Every single word cannot express,
The love and tenderness, I'll show you what it's all about,
Babe I swear you will succumb to me, So baby come to me,
When the lights go out!

When I flick da switch, Make ya hips wanna dip now,
I can get you off, Cos I'm ready and equipped now,
Swing for me baby give me all that you got,
Never wanna stop cos ya make me feel hot,
I know what you wanna do, And that I feel the same way too,
Give me what ya want through, The days and the nights,
Yeah its about time, That we turned out the lights!

It's The Things You Do Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

It's the things you do
that have made me fall
so in love with you
You can have it all
What else can I do
Nothing left to prove
It's the things you do

You touched my love line so deep inside I
never thought I'd feel so good
Oh no need to hide now
Open up your mind now
Let me make it understood because

Nobody ever said to me
All of the things we shared within
Now that I know that you can see
Let me fill you up

It's the things you do
that have made me fall
so in love with you
You can have it all
What else can I do
Nothing left to prove
It's the things you do

You and me baby like the ABC K-I-S-S-I-N-G
Could it be unity I need like J Hoffa
Romance your body work it out - MM proper
One of the finest things on my mind is
now you make me feel like gold your queen midas
Straight A plus the material I bust
It's the things that you do
Keep me up and it's a must

Nobody ever said to me
All of the things we shared within
Now that I know that you can see
Let me fill you up

It's the things you do
that have made me fall
so in love with you
You can have it all
What else can I do
Nothing left to prove
It's the things you do

Give me a chance and let me in
There's no need to hide what's there within
Now that I know that you can see
Let me fill you up
You got that midas touch
I love you more than enough
for all the things that you do
It's the things you do

that have made me fall
so in love with you
You can have it all
What else can I do
Nothing left to prove
It's the things you do

Human Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

I'm only human
of flesh and blood, I'm made
Human ... born to make mistakes

[Chorus:]
If 5 boys in da house say it loud
If 5 boys in da house check it out [2x]

Come on baby dry your eyes, wipe your tears
Never like to see you cry, please forgive me
I wouldn't ever try to hurt you
I just needed someone to hold me
To fill the void while you were gone
to fill this space of emptiness

[Chorus]

When I lay upon my bed reminisce then I wish
that I got you by my side with the cherry red kiss
hit me off make it soft hold me tight through the night
You know I'm gonna fight cos the thing we had was right

But if you go all I know I can't go a day without you
Here in my arms hypnotized with your charms now
I'm feeling for you baby ain't you hearing the alarms
You can't stop all the love that I got

Wanna rewind time to better days that were hot check it
bring back the better days for me baby
You gotta bring em back cos I'm going crazy
I go insane with your name up in my brain

Things will never be the same you ain't up in my frame
So what you gonna do what you gonna say
Tell me that you're gonna push your loving back my way

[Chorus]

Until The Time Is Through Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

Now and forever, Until the time is through

I can't believe it, I don't know where to start,
No baby, So many questions deep inside my heart

Give me a moment before you go,
There's something you ought to know.

[Chorus]
Baby now and forever,
Until the time is through (Until the time is through),
I'll be standing here,
Waiting and never give up my faith in you (Give up my faith in you),
Trying to make it clear,
Without your love, I'd be half a man, Maybe one day, You'll understand,
Now and forever, Until the time is through

I'll be waiting!

How can I tell you, so that you can see,
You know that, Love has a meaning,
When you are here with me (When you are here with me baby)

Give me a moment before you go,
There's something you ought to know.

[Chorus]
Baby now and forever,
Until the time is through (Until the time is through),
I'll be standing here,
Waiting and never give up my faith in you (Give up my faith in you),
Trying to make it clear,
Without your love, I'd be half a man, Maybe one day, You'll understand,
Now and forever, Until the time is through

There is no one to comfort me,
Here in my cold reality,
I'm searching for words,
What can I say to make you see.

Baby now, Until the time is through, I'll be Here. [2X]

[Chorus]
Baby now and forever,
Until the time is through (Until the time is through),
I'll be standing here,
Waiting and never give up my faith in you (Give up my faith in you),
Trying to make it clear,
Without your love, I'd be half a man, Maybe one day, You'll understand,
Now and forever, Until the time is through

Satisfield Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

Going round in circles baby,
Trying to think how I'm gonna get with you,
I think about you all of the time,
And you know that you're blowing my mind,
I'm going crazy baby, Tell me just what I'm supposed to do,
You got me going crazy,
I don't know what to do girl, You're rocking my world.

[Bridge:]
If you held me tonight, It would make things alright,
Could you love me? If I held you tonight,
I would make things alright,
Could you trust me? Cause I'm telling you baby.

[Chorus:]
I won't be satisfied, 'til you're here with me tonight,
I won't be satisfied, 'til I hold you in my arms,
You know you mesmerise, When I look into your eyes,
I won't be satisfied, 'til you're here with me tonight.

I'm not the kind of guy to fall in love,
But baby I've fallen for you,
I've fallen like an angel for real it's the way,
That you're making me feel, Walking the streets all alone,
Thinking how much I'm gonna be true to you.

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

I can't wait till I hold you in my arms baby tonight,
I can't wait until I look into your eyes,
I know that your loving is the best, Tell me baby that it's for real,
I want to hold you close in my arms,
You know you're everything that I need.

[Repeat Chorus Until Fade]

That's What You Told Me Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

That's what you told me baby
That's what you told me baby
That's what you told me baby
You drive me crazy

I thought I was the one
when we were together
you would take me to
another place and time that I could feel free
you were all that I was searching for

[Bridge:]
That's just when I
I thought I could lean on you for life
I thought that the sun would always shine
but you took my dreams away
I remember the lies that you told me baby

[Chorus:]
One, you told me you love me you need me
Two, you told me you never deceive me
Three, you told me you'd always be true
Four, you told me we're through, that's what you told me
That's what you told me baby
That's what you told me

Tell me was it fun taking my love for granted
now I'm not the one
everything we used to share has up and gone
I won't need to tell you, you were wrong

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

That's what you told me baby
That's what you told me baby
That's what you told me baby
You drive me crazy [2x]

That's what you told me, girl tell me no lie
Do you want to fly super high, super dooper high no
mistakes when I'm with you
know exactly what I wanna do
lay you down and pursue me

I'm super fly, cos I'm super high
when I'm by your side if you like girl, tell me if you like

One, if you wanna
Two, if you're gonna
Three, time to Jive
four, five bring it live

It's All Over Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

[Chorus:]
Girl (It's all over)
This time (It's all over)
I swear (It's all over)
on my name (Yes it's all over)
believe (It's all over)
that baby it's all over now

(It's all over, this time)

Thought I was made for you
and you believed in me
I thought this was how love was meant to be
didn't know it
but you were foolin' me around, oh

You had a hold on me
I was too blind to see
Could've been yours for eternity

Didn't see it
`til it was all up in my face, ah no-no
Do you recall the times that we shared
moments alone and your promises but
now the days are gone
now you're on your own tonight
never again cos

[Chorus]

Now I know the truth
It really hurts inside
cos every lie just twists the knife
the way I'm feelin'
there's just no remedy

Do you recall the times that we shared
moments alone and your promises but
now the days are gone
now you're on your own tonight
never again cos

[Chorus]

Ya hit me with the truth
hit me with the raw fact
put me on my back what you gotta say to that
You got me with your lies
I was thinking we were set
counting every second every day since we met
Remember in the times when we used to have it all
but then came the fall feeling like we hit a brick wall
Now You can keep it the lies in my ears
You're gonna shed tears as your man disappears

Yo! Sit back and let me do my thing
Laced with the click with the 5 on the swing
I'm not the one who's gonna be plagued by your kind
24-7 girl it's time to rewind
It's over just like a wack track you can't get with this
so you gotta get with that
No doubt in my mind the base so phatt
baby let me bring it on wiggy wack now

[Chorus]

My Song Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

So here's ho wit started, it started with a beat
a beat in my head and it wouldn't go away
so I added a bass, the bass was fat
I played it to me boys on a 24 track, they like that
ah the hand clap followed by the mic check
no time for dinner - Five's out on the night shift
shady eyes in the middle of the night
into the dawn till the lyrics lock tight
on to the mix, tell the DJ quick Five boom

He kept playing my song on and on all night long [2x]

Bip it up everybody, rip it up one time
Let me bring your rigidy rugged flow for
your mind got what you need, let me break it down
Five on the low with the funk for your town
Down on the floor now let me see you move
this time tonight now it's time yo groove
who got the champion sound understand
rhyme for rhyme, Five on the low down

[Chorus:]
Like I said before, got the funk for your trunk
from the junk yard to the boulevard here we come
ladies, lock tight woo with that straight

Five dead right party's over here we got the five boom
all night we made a hit, yet another home runner
and sweet sugar J got you hot like the summer so I'm
a stepping back and let the DJ bust the mix Five boom
Get down [7x]

[Chorus]

Baby bounce let me see you bounce to this
I've got the mic technique to help you use your ears
So you sit by the radio, hands on the dial
soon Five on the jam time to pump up the volume
Another fly track to get down
Let me see you move, time for you to get down and prove it
Ain't no doubt that we're fly so don't deny

[Chorus]

Switch Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

You gotta stop, listen up
Checking out my beats
Know the day uniques
Got ya jumping out ya seats, ah
Never bring the same flow upon a track
Better watch your back
When I bring the switch attack, now
People wanna nod, now they go and go
The funk thing that I bring
Make your head wanna ring
Here we come, you know we bring it raw
Get up on the floor 'cos
You gotta get some more

Friday night, party's just around the corner
She'll be there, so I just can't be late
Gotta get my groove thing on
'Cos I'll be dancing all night long
Send me to a place where I can have some fun

Once I get up on the floor
See me coming back for more
See me rockin' all my moves
Everybody's watching me

9 o'clock, finally my groove is swinging
Things are fine, now I guess it's time to rock

Now the party's on the way
Found out I gotta stay
People start to gather round
And round, and round, and round

[Bridge x2]

When I Remember When Lyrics

Artist : FIVE
Album : 5ive

All the things I said,
I should have said and didn't say,
And I wonder why.
Yes, I wonder why.
I think about the time we spent,
The places that we went,
Still makes me cry.
Yes, it makes me cry.

Why do they say that time will heal
This broken heart?
They would know it isn't true
If they lost someone like you, oh.

[Chorus:]
Some things can never be replaced.
Some things are with me for always.
These are the things I will remember
When I remember when.
I'd rather love and lose it all
Than never have you to recall.
These are the things I will remember.
Again and then again,
(Again and again)
When I remember when.

You taught me how to love,
I am all I am
Because of you.
Just because of you.
Everytime I lost my way,
you shine a light, you made my day,
You see me through.
Yes, you see me through.

So who's gonna come around to heal
This broken heart?
Show me how to laugh and cry,
But never how to say goodbye.

[Chorus]

This life goes on, you carry on,
You do, and it's okay.
(When I remember when)
This love goes on, and I will live
To love another day.
(Again and then again)
This life goes on, you carry on,
You do, and it's okay.
I would laugh, and I would cry,
But I will never say goodbye.

[Chorus]

Ooohh,
When I remember when.

(feat. T-Pain)

[Intro - T-Pain]
Mmmmmmmm
Let me talk to 'em
Let me talk to 'em
Mmmmmmm
Let me talk to 'em
C'mon!

[Chorus (T-Pain):]
Shawty had them apple bottom jeans (jeans)
Boots with the fur (with the fur)
The whole club was looking at her
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low
Them baggy sweat pants
And the Reebok's with the straps (with the straps)
She turned around and gave that big booty a smack (hey)
She hit the floor (she hit the floor)
Next thing you know
Shawty got low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low

[Flo-Rida]
I ain't never seen something that'll make me go
This crazy all night spending my doe
Had the million dollar vibe and a body to go
Them birthday cakes they stole the show
So sexual
She was flexible professional
Drinking X&O
Hold up, wait a minute, do I see what I think? Whoa
Did her thing seen shawty get low
Ain't the same when it's up that close
Make it rain I'm making it snow
Work the pole I gotta bank roll
I'm gonna say that I prefer the no clothes
I'm in to that I love women exposed
She threw it back at me I gave her mo
Cash ain't a problem I know where it go

[Chorus (T-Pain)]

[Flo-Rida]
Hey shawty what I gotta do to get you home
My jeans filled with guap and they're ready for showing
Cadillacs laid back for the sexy grown
Patron on the rocks that'll make you moan
One stack (come on), two stacks (come on), three stacks (come on)
Now that's three grand
What you think I'm playing baby girl I'm the man
I'm dealing rubber bands
That's when I threw her legs on my shoulders
I knew it was over
That heny and Cola got me like a soldier
She ready for Rover, I couldn't control her
So lucky on me I was just like clover
Shawty was hot like a toaster
Sorry but I had to fold her
Like a pornography poster
She showed her

[Chorus (T-Pain)]

[Flo-Rida]
Whoa shawty yeah she was worth the money
Little mama took my cash
And I ain't want it back
The way she bent that back
Got all them paper stacks
Tattoo above her crack
I had to handle that
I was zoned in sexy woman
Let me show it make me want it
Two in the morning I'm zoned in
Them rosee bottles foaming
She wouldn't stop
Made it drop
Shawty dipped that pop and lock
Had to break her off that guap
Gal was fine just like my glock

[Chorus (T-Pain)]

Caught Lyrics

Artist : GIRLICIOUS
Album : Girlicious

[Chrystina/Tiffanie]
I thought I found the right dude
Put you up to my girls
They said you couldn't be true
But you said I was your world
They set up the plan
I prayed it wouldn't get too deep
First the introduction
We knew she was your type
Hit you with temptation
I hoped you wouldn't bite
But so easily you took the bate
Now I present the case

[Chrystina]
What do you get when your

[Tiffanie]
Credit card bills comin' in too high
I never see them gifts that I know you buy

[Chrystina]
What do you get when you

[Tiffanie]
You say your job is calling, the you're talking real low
I walk into the room and you gotta go

[Chrystina]
That's what you get when you

[Tiffanie]
You must got me mixed up with some other chick
Cause I'ma have to shut you down
That's what you get when you get what you got
Baby you got caught
That's what you get when you get what you got
Baby you got caught

[Nichole/Natalie]
So tell me, what's your defense?
While I hunt down your senses
I got the evidence
Boy you're guilty as sin
You must've thought me soft
Now I'ma have to cross you off
Alright, it goes now
That's the way it's going down
Thought you was different
Never was you thinking
How could you throw it all away?
Now I present the case

[Chrystina]
What do you get when your

[Tiffanie]
Credit card bills comin' in too high
I never see them gifts that I know you buy

Cause I'ma have to shut you down
That's what you get when you get what you got

How could you stoop down so low
And do that dirt behind my back?

Do you remember that?

I bet you thought you was ballin'

[Nichole]
Every time she was callin'

Its too late, its too late now
To apologize to me
Don't say you're sorry

Song Of The Century Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Sing us a song of the century
That's louder than bombs and eternity
The era of static and contraband
That's leading us into the promised land
Tell us a story that's by candlelight
Waging a war and losing the fight

They're playing the song of the century
of panic and promise and prosperity
Tell me a story into that goodnight

Sing us a song for me ...

21st Century Breakdown Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Born into Nixon I was raised in hell
A welfare child
Where the teamsters dwelled
The last one born
The first one to run
My town was blind from refinery sun

My generation is zero
I never made it
As a working class hero

21st Century Breakdown
I once was lost but never was found
I think I am losing
What's left of my mind
To the 21st century deadline

I was made of poison and blood
Condemnation is what I understood

Videogames of the towers fall
Homeland security
Could kill us all

We are the class of '13
Born in the era of humility
We are the desperate in the decline
Raised by the bastards of 1969

My name is no one
The long lost son
Born on the 4th of July
Raised in the era of heroes and cons
That left me for dead or alive

I am a nation
A worker of pride
My debt to the status quo

The scars on my hands
And the means to an ends
Is all the that I have to show

I swallowed my pride
And I choked on my faith
I've given my heart and my soul
I've broken my fingers
And lied through my teeth
The pillar of damage control

I've been to the edge
And I've thrown the bouquet
Of flowers left over the grave
I sat in the waiting room
Wasting my time
And waiting for judgement day

I praise liberty
The "freedom to obey"
Is the song that strangles me
Don't cross the line

Dream, America dream
I can't even sleep
From the light's early dawn

Scream, America scream
Believe what you see
From heroes and cons?

¡Viva La Gloria! Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Hey Gloria?
Are you standing close to the edge?
Lookout to the setting sun
The brink of your vision
Eternal youth is a landscape of the lie

The cracks of my skin can prove
As the years will testify
Say your prayers and light a fire we're going to start a war
Your slogan's a gun for hire
It's what we waited for

Hey Gloria

This is why we were on the edge
The fight of our lives been drawn to this undying love

Gloria!Viva La Gloria!
You blast your name in graffiti on the walls (oh)
Falling through broken glass that's slashing through your spirit
I can hear it like a jilted crowd

Gloria!Where are you Gloria?
You found a home in all your scars and ammunition
You made your bed in salad days amongst the ruins
Ashes to ashes of our youth

She smashed her knuckles into winter (Gloria)
As autumns wind fades into black
She is the saint of all the sinners (Gloria)
The one that's fallen through the cracks
So don't put away your burning light

Gloria!Where are you Gloria?
Don't lose you faith to your lost naivete
Weather the storm and don't look back on last November
When your banners were burning down

Gloria!Viva La Gloria!
Send me your amnesty down to the broken hearted
Bring us the season that we always will remember
Don't let the bonfires go out

So Gloria

Send out your message of the light that shadows in the night
Gloria where's your undying love?
Tell me the story of your life ...
(Your life!)

Before The Lobotomy Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
Of another place and time
Where my family's from

Singing, I can hear them singing
When the rain had washed away
All these scattered dreams

Dying, everyone's reminded
Hearts are washed in misery
Drenched in gasoline

Laughter, there's no more laughter
Songs of yesterday now live in the underground

Life before the lobotomy
Christian sang the eulogy
Sign of my love a lost memory
From the end of the Century

Well it's enough to make you sick
To cast a stone and throw a brick
When the sky is falling down
It burned your dreams into the ground

Christian's lesson
Is what he's been sold
We are normal and self-controlled
Remember to learn to forget
Whiskey shots and cheap cigarettes

Well I'm not stoned, I'm just fucked up
I got so high, I can't stand up
I'm not cursed cause I've been blessed
I'm not in love cause I'm a mess

Like refugees
We're lost like refugees
Like refugees
We're lost like refugees
The brutality of reality
Is the freedom that keeps me from

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
Of another place and time
Where my family's from

Singing, I can hear them singing
When the rain had washed away all these scattered dreams

Dying, everyone's reminded
Hearts are washed in misery
Drenched in gasoline

Laughter, there's no more laughter
Songs of yesterday
Now live in the underground

Christian's Inferno Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

I got under the grip
Between the modern hell
I got the rejection letter in the mail
And it was already ripped to shreds

Seasons in a ruin and this bitter pill is chased with blood
There's fire in my veins and it's pouring out like a flood

(Wooaahhooohh!) Christian's Inferno!
(Wooaahhooohh!) Christian's Inferno!

This diabolic state is gracing my existence
Like a catastrophic baby
Maybe,maybe you're the chemical reaction
I'm the atom bomb
I'm the chosen one
Toxin your reservoir
And then return man to ape

(Wooaahhooohh!) Christian's Inferno!
(Wooaahhooohh!) Christian's Inferno!

(Wooaahhooohh!) Christian's Inferno!
(Wooaahhooohh!) Christian's Inferno!

Last Night On Earth Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

I text a postcard sent to you
Did it go through?
Sending all my love to you
You are the moonlight of my life every night
Giving all my love to you
My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
I'm sending all my love to you

With every breath that I'm worth here on Earth
I'm sending all my love to you
So if you dare to second guess you can rest assured
That all my love's all for you

My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
I'm sending all my love to you

My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
Did I ever make it through?

East Jesus Nowhere Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Raise your hands now to testify
Your confession will be crucified
You're a sacrificial suicide
Like a dog that's been sodomized
Stand Up! All the white boys
Sit Down! And the black girls

Put your faith in a miracle
And it's non-denominational
Join the choir we will be singing
In the church of wishfull thinking

A fire burns today
Of blasphemy and genocide
The sirens of decay
Will infiltrate the faith fanatics

Oh bless me Lord for I have sinned
It's been a lifetime since I last confessed
I threw my crutches in the river
Of a shadow of doubt
And I'll be dressed in my Sunday best

Say a prayer for the family
Drop a coin for humanity
Ain't this uniform so flattering?
I never asked you a god damn thing

A fire burns today
Of blasphemy and genocide
The sirens of decay
Will infiltrate the faith fanatics

Don't test me
Second guess me
Protest me
You will dissapear

I want to know who's allowed to breed
All the dogs who never learned to read
Missionary politicians
And the cops of a new religion

A fire burns today
Of blasphemy and genocide
The sirens of decay
Will infiltrate the inside

Peacemaker Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Well I've got a fever
A non-believer
I'm in a state of grace
For I am the caesar
I'm gonna seize the day
Well call of the banshee (Hey, hey)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
As God as my witness the infidels are gonna pay

Well call the assassin
The orgasm
A spasm of love and hate
For what will divide us?
The righteous and the meek
Well call of the wild (Hey, hey)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Death to the gira
At the end of the serenade

Vendetta sweet vendetta
This beretta of the night
This fire and the desire
Shots ringing out on a holy parasite

I am a killjoy from Detroit
I drink from a well of rage
I feed of the weakness
With all my love
Call up the captian (Hey, hey)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Death of the lover that you were dreaming of

This is a stand off a molotov
cocktail on the house
You thought I was write off you better think again
Call the peacemaker (Hey, hey)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
I'm gonna sent you back to the place where it all began

Vendetta sweet vendetta
This beretta of the night
This fire and the desire
Shots ringing out on a holy parasite

Well now the caretakers
The undertaker
Now I'm gonna go out
And get the peacemaker
This is the neo
St. Valentine's massacre
Well call up the Gaza (Hey, hey)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Death to the ones at the end of the serenade
Well, death to the ones at the end of the ...
Serenade!

Last Of The American Girls Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

She puts her makeup on
Like graffite on the walls of the heartland
She's got her little book of conspiracies right in her hand
She is a paranoid like endangered species headed into extinction
She is one of a kind
She's the last of the American Girls

She wear her overcoat for the coming of the nuclear winter
She is riding her bike like a fugitive of critical mass
She's on a hunger strike for the ones who won't make it for dinner
She makes enough to survive for a holiday of working class
She's a runaway of the establishment incorporated
She won't cooperate
She's the last of the American Girls

She plays her vinyl records singing songs on the eye of destruction
She's a sucker for all the criminals breaking the laws
She will come in first for the end of western civilization
She's and endless war like a hero for the lost cause
Like a hurricane in the heart of devastation
She's a natural disaster
She's the last of the American Girls

She puts her makeup on
Like graffiti on the walls of the heartland
She's got her little book of conspiracies right in her hand
She will come in first for the end of western civilization
She's a natural disaster
She's the last of the American Girls

Murder City Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Desperate but not hopeless
I feel so useless in the murder city
Desperate but not helpless
The clock strikes midnight in the murder city

In a wide awake after the riot
This demonstration of our anguish
This empty laughter has no reason
Like a bottle of your favourite poison
We are the last call and we're so pathetic

Desperate but not hopeless
I feel so useless in the murder city
Desperate but not helpless
The clock strikes midnight in the murder city

Christian's crying in the bathroom
And I just want to burn a cigarette
We've come so far,we've been so wasted
It's written all over our faces

Desperate but not hopeless
I feel so useless in the murder city
Desperate but not helpless
The clock strikes midnight in the murder city

¿Viva La Gloria? (Little Girl) Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Little girl,little girl why are you crying?
Inside your restless soul your heart is dying?
Little one,little one your is purging
Of love and razor blades your blood is surging

Runaway!
From the river to the street and find yourself with your face in the gutter
You're a stray for the salvation army
There is no place like home when you got no place to go

Little girl,little girl your life is calling
The charlatans and saints the sky is falling
The lifeboat of deception is now sailing
In the wake all the way no rhyme or reason
Your bloodshot eyes will show your heart of treason

Little girl,little girl you dirty liar
You're just a junkie preaching to the choir

Runaway!
From the river to the street and find yourself with your face in the gutter
You're a stray for the salvation army
There is no place like home when you got no place to go

The traces of blood always follow you home like the mascara tears from your getaway
You're walking with blisters and running with shears, So unholy
Sister of grace!

Runaway!
From the river to the street and find yourself with your face in the gutter
You're a stray for the salvation army
There is no place like home

Restless Heart Syndrome Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

I've got a really bad disease
It's getting begging on my hands and knees
Take me to the emergency
Cause something seems to be missing
Somebody take the pain away
It's like an ulcer bleeding in my brain
Send me to the pharmacy so I can lose my memory

I'm elated, medicated
Lord knows I tried to find a way to run away

I think they found another cure
For broken hearts and feeling insecure
You'd be surprised what I endure
What makes you feel so self-assured

I need to find a place to hide
You never know what could be waiting outside
The accidents that you could find
It's like some kind of suicide

So what kills you, is what impales you
I feel like I've been crucified to be satisfied

I'm elated, medicated
I am my own worst enemy
So what ails you is what impales you
You are your own worst enemy
You're a victim of the system

I'm a victim of my symptom
I am my own worst enemy
You're a victim of your symptom
You are your own worst enemy
Know your enemy

Horseshoes And Handgrenades Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

I'm not fucking around
I think I'm coming out
All the deceivers and cheaters
I think we've got a bleeder right now
Want you to slap me around?
Want you to knock me out?
Well, you missed me kissed me
Now you better kick me down

Maybe you're the runner up
But the first one to lose the race
Almost only really counts in
Horseshoes and Handgrenades

I'm gonna burn it all down
I'm gonna rip it out
Well everything that you employ
Was meant for me to destroy to the ground now
So don't fuck me around because I'll shoot you down
I'm gonna drink,fight and fuck and pushing my luck all the time now

Maybe you're the runner up
But the first one to lose the race
Almost only really counts in
Horseshoes and Handgrenades

Demolition,self-destruction
What to annihilate, the age-old contradiction
Demolition,self-destruction
What to annihilate, the old age

I'm not fucking around
I think I'm coming out
I'm a hater, a traito
In a pair of Chuck Taylors right now
I'm not fucking around

G-L-O-R-I-A!

The Static Age Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Can you hear the sound of the static noise,blasting out in stereo?
Cater to the class and the paranoid,music to my nervous system
Advertising love and religion,murder on the airwaves
Slogans on the brink of corruption

Visions of blasphemy,war and peace
Screaming at you

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a thing on the radio
in stereo in the static age

Billboard on the rise in the dawn's landscape, working your insanity
Tragic ala madness and concrete Coca Cola execution
Conscions on a cross and your hearts in a vice,
Squeezing out your state of mind
Are what you own that you cannot buy

What a fucking tragedy,strategy
Screaming at you

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a thing on the radio
in stereo in the static age

Hey,hey it's the static age
This is how the west was won
Hey,hey it's the static age millenium

All I want to know is a god damned thing
Not what's in the medicine
All I want to do is I want to breathe, batteries are not included
What's the latest way that a man can die?
Screaming hallelujah?
Singing out "the dawn's early light"

The silence of the rotten,forgotten
Screaming at you

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a thing on the radio
in stereo in the static age

21 Guns Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away and you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside,you're in ruins

One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I ...

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass and the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last, you're in ruins

One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I ...

Did you try to live on your own?
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand to close to the fire?
Like a liar looking from forgiveness from a stone
When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died,you're in ruins

One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I ...

American Eulogy Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

[XIII American Eulogy]

Sing us a song of the century
It sings like American Eulogy
The dawn of my love and conspiracy
Forgotten hope and the class of 13
Tell me a story into that goodnight
Sing us a song for me

[A. Mass Hysteria]

Hysteria, mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!

Red alert is the colour of panic
Elevated to the point of static
Beating into the hearts of the fanatics
And the neighborhood's a loaded gun
Idle thought lead to full-throttle screaming
And the wellfare is asphyxiating
Mass confusion is all the new age and it's creating a feeding ground for the bottom feeders of hysteria

Hysteria, mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!

True sounds of maniacal laughter
And the deafmute is misleading the choir
The punchline is a natural disaster
And it's sung by the unemployed
Fight fire with a riot
The class war is hanging on a wire because the martyr is a compulsive liar
When he said "it's just a bunch of niggers throwing gas into the ...."

Hysteria, mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!

There's a disturbance on the oceanside
They tapped into the reserve
The static response is so unclear now
Mayday this is not a test!
As the neighborhood burns, America is falling
Vigilantes warning ya,
calling christian and gloria

[Bridge + Solo]

[B. Modern World]

I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!

I'm a fugitive son
In the era of dissent
A hostage of the soul
On a strike to pay the rent
The last of the rebels
Without a common ground
I'm gonna light a fire into the underground

I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!

I am a nation without bureaucratic ties
Deny the allegation as it's written (fucking lies!)

I want to take a ride to the great divide
Beyond the "up to date" and the neo-gentrified
The high definition for the low resident
Where the value of your mind is not held in contempt
I can hear the sound of a beating heart
That bleeds beyond a system that's falling apart
With money to burn on a minimum wage
I don't give a shit about the modern age

I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!

I don't wanna live in the modern world! (Mass hysteria!)

See The Light Lyrics

Artist : GREEN DAY
Album : 21st Century Breakdown

I crossed the river
Fell into the sea
Where the non-believers go beyond belief
Then I scratched the surface
In the mount of hell
Running out of service in the blood I fell

I just want to see the light!
I don't want to lose my sight!
I just want to see the light!
I need to know what's worth the fight!

I've been wasted
Pills and alcohol
I've been chasing
Down the pool halls
I drank the water from a hurricane
I set a fire just to see the flame

I just want to see the light!
I don't want to lose my sight!
I just want to see the light!
I need to know what's worth the fight!

I crossed the desert
Reaching higher ground
Then I found the pavement to take the liars down
But it's gone forever,but never too late
Where the ever after is in the hands of fate

I just want to see the light!
I don't want to lose my sight!
I just want to see the light!
I need to know what's worth the fight!

Number With No Name Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

I'm serenaded by a chorus of a thousand burning cigarettes
You've been taking chances, mama
While I've been placing bets
So tell it to the ashes, they know we served
It may be good for the soul but it's hard on the nerves

The very thing that drives you, can drive you insane
Got a head full of thought crimes and a number with no name
Got an eleventh hour Jesus and a mouth full of blame
A casket lined with silver dollars and a number with no name

There's nowhere to run
I've got no one to tell
My face has become a mask and I'm not wearing it well
For five days straight
I've been breathing fire
Don't have room on my body
For another scar

The very thing that drives you, can drive you insane
Got a head full of thought crimes and a number with no name
Got an eleventh hour Jesus and a mouth full of blame
A casket lined with silver dollars and a number with no name

Up To You Now Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

You can run away from home
But you can't run away from your pain
I sit here alone
There's always someone else to blame

It's up to you now
It's up to you now
Don't wanna be your broken dream
We've run out of fate somehow
And it's up to you now

I have to hide from my own face
Now that we have fallen from grace
Arms that hold you close
Are the arms that hold you back
While your world is under attack

It's up to you now
It's up to you now
I stumble to your altar
With my knees bent, my head bowed
And it's up to you now

There's no sound louder than war
And we don't have tomorrow anymore
You wrote a list with all your demands
And you nailed it to both of my hands

It's up to you now
It's up to you now
My fist is full of ashes
And my blood is in the ground
So it's up to you now

Shimmer & Shine Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

It takes a hundred miles of love
To heal a mile of pain
I never say goodbye to the sea
I never blow out a flame
And I've got white lies for dark times
And I don't need your crutch
I'm kicking out the stained glass windows
And I'm tender to the touch

Shimmer and shine
We leave it all behind
Shimmer and shine
When you tell me that you're mine
Shimmer and shine, shimmer and shine

Bring me the music for the revolution
It puts my mind at ease to know
We're the problem, we're the solution
The cure and the disease
But life is trying to force me, force me to trust
I've done all I can... I'll do what I must

Shimmer and shine
We leave it all behind
Shimmer and shine
When you tell me that you're mine
We shimmer and shine
Shimmer and shine

Lay There & Hate Me Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

Lay there and hate me
Lay there and burn
One side to the other
You toss and turn
Never trust a woman, never trust a woman
Who loves the blues

Mistake number one, I made it three times a day
We'd best talk over how there is nothing left to say
I feel like an underpaid concubine
Who has overstayed her welcome

You gave me an eight-page letter front and back
Written in your favorite colors, blood and black
Choose your words as careful as you'd choose your own gravestone
You lay there and hate me, better than being alone
Had to fight your way in, you got to fight your way out
Ain't no fool like the fool you love
So let me hear you shout

Shake down, break down
Just can't sit still
You cut off your hair and sold it
For your pretty little pill
I've learned some things about myself I wish I didn't know

You gave me an eight-page letter from front and back
Written in your favorite colors, blood and black
You choose your words as careful as you'd choose your own gravestone
You lay there and hate me, better than being alone
Had to fight your way in, you got to fight your way out
Ain't no fool like the one you love
So let me hear you, hear you shout

Lay there and hate me
Cold as a stone
I just hope it's better than sitting alone
Never trust a woman who loves the blues

Gave me an eight-page letter front and back
Written in your favorite colors, blood and black
Choose your words as careful as you'd choose your own gravestone
Lay there and hate me, better than being alone
Had to fight your way in, now you got to fight your way out
Ain't no fool like the fool you love
So let me hear you, let me hear you shout

You may be a cheap date
But my therapy's expensive as hell
Then you pay a psychic healer who lets you know
Things aren't really working out so well
Tomorrow's shining off our face
Yesterday's shadow is at our back, at our back
So why must you always dress in black?

People, they don't take advice, they only give it
And the only way you're ever gonna learn is to live it
So what you spent your younger years
Parlaying on the wrong side of the track
Why must you always dress in black?

If you have to lie, do it as quickly
And as thoroughly as you can
This morning I woke up slow feeling like the shell of a man
Don't blame me for us, you cried!
Oh, cut me some slack
And tell me why must you always dress in black?

She wore high heels, the ones that can pierce your heart
Just 'cause you go down in history
Doesn't mean you're really all that smart
Like Robert E. Lee, you're at your best when under attack
Why must you always dress in black?

You call in sick on Monday
Tuesday you show up late
Wednesday you left early
Thursday you fight with a boss you hate
Friday you up and quit
Saturday you want your old job back
Sunday morning you wake up all dressed in black
Why must you always dress in black?

Skin Thin Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

Now that you've grown up
You can finally learn to be a child
We made it to the end of the world
But we'll never make it out alive

Skin thin
I breathe out, you breathe in
But the days seem so long
Skin thin, blood again
It's all I can do to hold on
We're just skin thin

Always knew if we didn't have each other
We'd have nothing at all
And you were always brave enough
To live like you could never fall

Skin thin
I breathe out, you breathe in
But the days seem so long
Skin thin, blood again
It's all I can do to hold on

Now that we've grown up
Can finally learn to be a child
With good friends behind me
But ghosts up ahead for miles and miles

Skin thin
I breathe out, you breathe in
But the days they seem so long
Skin thin, blood again
It's all I can do to hold on
Life's just skin thin

Fly One Time Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

Inevitability
Is pounding at my door
Screaming for more
In a world that owes you nothing
You give everything
Everything

Now I'm caught in between
What I can't leave behind
And what I may never find
So fly one time
Fly one time

Standing
At the edge of your life
At the edge of our lives
Don't hold on, there's no fighting back the years
It's so hard to unlearn fears

Now that you're caught between
What you can't leave behind
And all that you may never find
So fly, just fly
Just fly one time

I see you so clearly, so clearly up so high
I see you up so clearly, up so clearly high
Now you're caught in between
What you can't leave behind
And what we may never find
So fly, so fly one time
So clearly, so clearly
So high, fly one time
Just fly one time
If you'd fly one time....

I'm not sure what worries me more
The fact that I'm talking to a wall
Or that the wall keeps answering me
Saying that I've heard it all before
Never underestimate how complicated
A simple life can be

You've gotta keep it together
You've gotta keep it together
You've gotta keep it together so I can fall apart

I know you've grown tired of trying to feed me
And I know by now my reputation precedes me
I know you've grown tired of trying to fix me
And I know by now my best years, they are no longer with me

Keep it together
You've gotta keep it together
You've gotta keep it together
You've gotta keep it together so I can fall apart
You've gotta keep it together, you've gotta keep it together so I can fall apart
You've gotta keep it together, please keep it together
So that I can fall apart

Boots Like These Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

Tonight I'm gonna lose my mind
Tonight I hope I lose my mind
Tonight I'm trying to lose my mind tonight
We're gonna live forever

Easy come, easy go
Get in where you fit in
Gotta slow your roll

Tonight I wanna lose my mind
Tonight I'm trying to lose my mind
Tonight I hope I lose my mind
Tonight we're gonna live forever

Never pretend to be a gambler

Smoke from your lips
Fire from your hips
She's just a slow walking woman

Tonight I'm trying to lose my mind
Tonight I need to lose my mind
Tonight I'm trying to lose my mind
Tonight I'm gonna lose my mind

Never pretend to be a gambler
I gotta get out from inside my head
Gotta get out from inside my head

You doubled the dose and I ran outta rope
It's me and you against the world
You doubled the dose and I ran outta rope
It's me and you against the world

You gotta live my life to get boots like these
You gotta live my life to get boots like these
You gotta live my life to get boots like these

The Word Suicide Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

The word suicide is irresponsible
Still you offered to buy me a gun
What's so hard about sympathy
Love is a lonely room
Love is a lonely room

When out on the edge
There's just two directions
And somebody has to lose
I should know better than to use words
Like never and hate
Love is a lonely room
Love is a lonely room

This is no way to live
And this is no way to die
Who in the hell's life is this I'm living anyway
Love is a lonely room
Love is a lonely room

Love is a lonely room [x8]

Faithfully Remain Lyrics

Artist : HARPER, BEN
Album : White Lies For Dark Times

I learned to say goodbye too young
I learned to duck from words
Like bullets from a gun

How long can you pray
And still not see a change
I faithfully remain

Some things
You have to let be lost
Some battles, some battles
You have to leave unfought

Then the truth just wastes away
In all we dare not say
And in all we can't explain
But I faithfully remain

Now I'm afraid
Once again
It has come to this
When it all goes dark
Nothing stays the same
Now I'm only what I miss

And my memories
They turn to tears
They turn to fire, blood and pain
And I faithfully remain

I faithfully remain
And I faithfully remain
I faithfully remain

Pagan Angel And A Borrowed Car Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

Love was a promise made of smoke
In a frozen copse of trees
A bone cold and older than our bodies
Slowly floating in the sea
Every morning there were planes
The shiny blades of pagan angels in our father's skies
Every evening I would watch her hold the pillow
Tight against her hollows, her unholy child
I was still a beggar shaking out my stolen coat
Among the angry cemetery leaves
When they caught the king beneath the borrowed car
Righteous, drunk, and fumbling for the royal keys

Love was a father's flag and sung like a shank
In a cake on our leather boots
A beautiful feather floating down
To where the birds had shit on empty chapel pews
Every morning we found one more machine
To mock our ever waning patience at the well
Every evening she'd descend the mountain stealing socks
And singing something good where all the horses fell
Like a snake within the wilted garden wall
I'd hint to her every possibility
While with his gun the pagan angel rose to say
"My love is one made to break every bended knee"

White Tooth Man Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

Said the plain clothes cop to the beauty queen
"I've seen nothing but a spoke in a wheel"
So she gave up her crown to a kid with a crutch
And they both felt cheated after closing the deal
And the white tooth man, I ran with him
Got all cut up from pissing out in the weeds
And a fight upstate with a broken blade
And a wife whose finger never wanted a ring

Said the plain clothes cop to the Indian chief
"I've made nothing but an honest mistake"
The postman cried while reading the mail
And we all got trampled in the Christmas parade
And the white tooth man who sold me a gun
A map of Canaan and a government bond
Said, "I love this town, but it ain't the same"
The ski mask ripped as he was putting it on

Said the plain clothes cop to the holy ghost
"I've heard nothing if it wasn't the wind"
And we all got sick on a strip club meal
While the statehouse was frying all the witches again
So the white tooth man with his kids in the car
And a wad of money that was already spent
Said, "I love my dog but she just ran away
She'll keep running like the world never ends"

Lovesong Of The Buzzard Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

In the failing light of the afternoon
Lucy in the shade of the dogwood blooms
Yesterday the solace of a poison fish
Tomorrow I'll be kissing on her blood red lips

No one is the saviour they would like to be
The lovesong of the buzzard in the dogwood tree
With a train of horses laughing through the traffic line
And the cradle's unimaginative sense of time

Springtime and the promise of an open fist
A tattoo of a flower on a broken wrist
Lucy tells me jokingly to wipe her brow
With a pocket map to heaven and the sun goes down

Carousel Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

Almost home
When I missed the bottom stair
You were braiding your gray hair
It had grown so long
Since I'd been gone

And the perfect girls
By the pool, they would protest
The cross around their necks
But our sons were overseas
And we all know about the hive and the honey bees

Almost home
With an olive branch and a dove
You were beating on a Persian rug
With your bible and your wedding band
Both hidden on a TV stand

And the cruel wind blew
Every city father fell
Off the county carousel
While the dogs were eating snow
All our sons had sunk in a trunk of Noah's clothes

Almost home
We got lost on our new street
While your grieving girls all died in their sleep
So the dogs all went unfed
A great dream of bones all piled on the bed

And the cops couldn't care
When that crackhead built a boat
And said, "Please, before I go
May our only honored bone
Be the kinship of the kids and the riot squad"

House By The Sea Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

There is a house by the sea
Two jealous sisters, they're waiting for me
And one is laid on the floor
And one is changing the locks on the doors
And I've been buying the time on my knees
And I've been selling their blankets to bleed (on)

Around the house by the sea
The scent of roses and raspberry leaves
And there is smoke in my clothes
Too much time with just smoke in my nose
And I've been making the meaning they lack
And I've been burning that book they come back too

There is a house by the sea
And an ocean between it and me
And like the shape of a wave
The jealous sisters will sing on my grave
And I've been living to run where they led
And I've been dying to rise from their bed
And I've been sparing my neck from their chain
And they've been changing the sound of my name
And I've been swimming to them in my sleep
And I've been dreaming our love and our freedom

Innocent Bones Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

Cain got a milk-eyed mule from the auction
Abel got a telephone
And even the last of the blue-eyed babies know
That the burning man is the color of the end of day
And how every tongue that gets bit always has another word to say

Cain bought a blade from some witch at the window
Abel bought a bag of weed
And even the last of the brown-eyed babies see
That the cartoon king has a tattoo of a bleeding heart
There ain't a penthouse Christian wants the pain of the scab, but they all want the scar
How every mouth sings of what it's without so we all sing of love
And how it ain't one dog who's good at fucking and denying who he's thinking of

Cain heard a cat tumble limp off the rooftop
Abel heard his papa pray
And even the last of the black-eyed babies say
That every saint has a chair you can borrow and a church to sell
That the wind blows cold across the back of the master and the kitchen help
There's a big pile of innocent bones still holding up the garden wall
And it was always the broken hand we learned to lean on after all
How God knows if Christ came back he would find us in a poker game
After finding out the drugs were all free but they won't let you out the door again

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

Wolves by the road
And a bike wheel spinning on a pawn shop wall
She leaned on her colored hair
Like a butterfly wing in a summer rainfall
And the roll on the kitchen floor
Some fucker with a pocketful of foreign change
Song of the shepherd's dog
A pitch in the dark in the ear of the lamb
Who was going to try to run away
Whoever got that brave?

Wolves in the middle of town
And the chapel bell ringing through the wind-blown trees
To wave to the butcher's boy
With the parking lot music everybody believes
And then out like a dying bird
In the corner of the penny arcade
Song of the shepherd's dog
Waiting around the jack call of the rooster
On the rooftop waiting for day
And ain't nobody's going to say

Wolves at the end of the bed
And a postcard hidden in her winter clothes
She beat in the back of a truck
To the trailers when we trying to find the bullet hole
And then run down the canopy rows
Some mother and a baby with a cross to nail
Song of the shepherd's dog
Little brown flea in the bottle of oil
For your woolly wild hair
You'll never get him out of there

Resurrection Fern Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

In our days we will live
Like our ghosts will live...
Pitching glass at the cornfield crows
And folding clothes

Like stubborn boys across the road
We'll keep everything...
Grandma's gun and the black bear claw
That took her dog

When sister Laurie says, "Amen"
We won't hear anything...
The ten-car trains will take that word
That fledgling bird

And the fallen house across the way
It'll keep everything...
The baby's breath
Our bravery wasted and our shame

And we'll undress beside the ashes of the fire
Both our tender bellies wound in baling wire
All the more a pair of underwater pearls
Than the oak tree and its resurrection fern

In our days we will say
What our ghosts will say...
We gave the world what it saw fit
And what'd we get?

Like stubborn boys with big green eyes
We'll see everything...
In the tender shade of the autumn leaves
And the buzzard's wing

And we'll undress beside the ashes of the fire
Our tender bellies are wound around in baling wire
All the more a pair of underwater pearls
Than the oak tree and its resurrection fern

Boy With A Coin Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

A boy with a coin he found in the weeds
With bullets and pages of trade magazines
Close to a car that flipped on the turn
When God left the ground to circle the world

A girl with a bird she found in the snow
Then flew up her gown and that's how she knows
If God made her eyes for crying at birth
Then left the ground to circle the earth

A boy with a coin he crammed in his jeans
Then making a wish he tossed in the sea
Walked to a town that all of us burn
When God left the ground to circle the world

The Devil Never Sleeps Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

Love was a promise made of smoke
In a frozen copse of trees
A bone cold and older than our bodies
Slowly floating in the sea
Every morning there were planes

The shiny blades of pagan angels in our father's skies
Every evening I would watch her hold the pillow
Tight against her hollows, her unholy child
I was still a beggar shaking out my stolen coat
Among the angry cemetery leaves
When they caught the king beneath the borrowed car
Righteous, drunk, and fumbling for the royal keys

Love was a father's flag and sung like a shank
In a cake on our leather boots
A beautiful feather floating down
To where the birds had shit on empty chapel pews
Every morning we found one more machine
To mock our ever waning patience at the well
Every evening she'd descend the mountain stealing socks
And singing something good where all the horses fell
Like a snake within the wilted garden wall
I'd hint to her every possibility
While with his gun the pagan angel rose to say
"My love is one made to break every bended knee"

Peace Beneath The City Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

Here's a prayer for the body buried by the interstate
Mother of a soldier, a tree in a forest up in flames
Black valley, peace beneath the city
Where the women hear the washboard rhythm in their bosom when they say
"Give me good legs and a Japanese car and show me a road"

Sing a song for the bodies buried by the riverbank
A well-dressed boy and a pig with a bullet in the brain
Black valley, peace beneath the city
Where the white girls wander the strip mall, singing all day
"Give me a juggernaut heart and a Japanese car and someone to free"

Say something for the body buried like a keepsake
Mother of million mouths with the very same name
Black valley, peace beneath the city
Where the women tell the weather but never ever tell you what they pray
They pray, "Give me a yellow brick road and a Japanese car and benevolent change"

Flightless Bird, American Mouth Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : The Shepherd's Dog

I was a quick wet boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your street light eyes
Wide on my plastic toys
And when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big pill looming

Now I'm a fat house cat
Cursing my sore blunt tongue
Watching the warm poison rats
Curl through the wide fence cracks
Pissing on magazine photos
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean
Blood of Christ mountain stream

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, grounded, bleeding
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big pill, stuck going down

Dearest Forsaken Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : Around The Well

To my dearest forsaken
Who the earth now has taken
Empty, the bottle drains no more

It is true that I loved you
Despite the harm that I own you
Wash out the river has you boy

Here on the eve of too long
Where you'll think I've done wrong
Waking in fear of you no more

I'll put my trust in the savior
Fielding forces of nature
Strength of the stump I tied you boy

To my dearest forsaken
Dearest vow I have broken
Afraid of your angry hands no more

I'll put my trust in the savior
River may help me later
Sleeping my lost love for you boy

Sacred Vision Lyrics

Artist : IRON & WINE
Album : Around The Well

There's no way to temper your thirst
With lasting impressions or pictures of home
There's no way to grow that don't hurt
She growled from the station then hung up the phone

There's no sacred vision like her
No eye-crushing mountain or jewelry to wear
There's no granted wish I prefer
Then she to be with me, for us to be there

I'd rather to be all alone
Forgiveness is fickle when trust is a chore
It's not every sin that's atoned
I heard her speak softly then heard her no more

There's no sacred vision like her
No eye-crushing mountain or jewelry to wear
There's no granted wish I prefer
Then she to be with me, for us to be there
