**Breaking Benjamin: Dear Agony **(Fourth Studio Album)

"The Anthem of the Angels"

White walls surround us
No light will touch your face again
Rain taps the window
As we sleep among the dead

Days go on forever
But I have not left your side
We can chase the dark together
If you go then so will I

There is nothing left of you
I can see it in your eyes
Sing the anthem of the angels
And say the last goodbye

Cold light above us
Hope fills the heart and fades away
Skin white as winter
As the sky returns to gray

Days go on forever
But I have not left your side
We can chase the dark together
If you go then so will I

There is nothing left of you
I can see it in your eyes
Sing the anthem of the angels
And say the last goodbye
I keep holding onto you
But I can’t bring you back to life
Sing the anthem of the angels
Then say the last goodbye

You’re dead alive
You’re dead alive
You’re dead alive
You’re dead alive

There is nothing left of you
I can see it in your eyes
Sing the anthem of the angels
And say the last goodbye
I keep holding onto you
But i can’t bring you back to life
Sing the anthem of the angels
And say the last goodbye
Sing the anthem of the angels
And say the last goodbye
Sing the anthem of the angels

Breaking Benjamin = My inspiration :stuck_out_tongue:

Not my favorite song but some very good lyrics

If you’re livin’ in a bubble and you haven’t got a care
Well, you’re gonna be in trouble ‘cause we’re gonna steal your air
’Cause what you got is what we need and all we do is dirty deeds
We’re the Spaceballs! Watch out, ‘cause we’re the Spaceballs
We’re the masters of space
Hey, don’t mess around with the Spaceballs.
Uh!
Going cruisin’ in a spaceship, we’re so good at being bad
We’ll destroy your little planet if you ever get us mad
We’re mothers of the galaxy
You better scatter when you see
The Spaceballs! Watch out, we’re the Spaceballs
We’re the masters of space
Say what? Don’t mess around with the Spaceballs.
Watch out!
We’re mothers of the galaxy
We’re gonna take the air you breathe
Hahahahahaha!
Oh! Spaceballs!
Watch out!
We’re the Spaceballs
We’re the masters of space
Do-do-do-do-don’t mess around with the Spaceballs.
Yo! Watch out!
We’re the Spaceballs!
We’re the masters of space
Hey, don’t mess around with the Spaceballs.
Watch out!
We’ve got a bossin’ little ship
So you better watch your lip
’Cause we’re the Spaceballs.
Watch out!
You may think that you are bad
But believe you can be had
By the Spaceballs!
Watch out!
We’re the Spaceballs!
Watch out!
We’re the Spaceballs!
We’re the masters of space
Don’t mess around with the Spaceballs.
We’re so bad and mean
We make nightmares out of dreams
We’re the Spaceballs!
We’re the Spaceballs.
You better watch out!
Hehehehahahahaha!

Edit: It was done by the Spinners for the Spaceballs movie

Blue songs are like tattoos
You know I’ve been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Hey Blue, here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there’s so many sinking now
You’ve got to keep thinking
You can make it through these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs lots of laughs
Everybody’s saying that hell’s the hippest way to go
Well I don’t think so
But I’m gonna take a look around it though
Blue I love you

Blue here is a shell for you
Inside you’ll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me

could you please put the author of the lyrics?

I forgot…

Fly Me to the moon, were we will play among the stars
let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and mars
In other words, hold my hand, in other words darling kiss me

fill my heart with song, and let me sing forever more
you alone I long for all I worship and adore
in other words, please be true, in other words, I love you.

Avenged Sevenfold: City of Evil (3rd Studio Album)

"M.I.A."

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun would never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings can’t be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight, on tonight.

Ooooo…
Stand up and fight.

The fighting rages on and on, to challenge me you must be strong.
I walk your land but don’t belong, two million soldiers can’t be wrong.

It’s no fun but I’ve been here before
I’m far from home and I’m fighting your war.
(Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things)
Some are scared others killing for fun, I shot a mother right in front of her son.
(Take this from my consciousness, and please erase my dreams)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to God that our side is right.
Even though we won, I still may lose
Until I make it home to you
I see our mothers filled with tears,
grew up so fast where did those years go?
Memories won’t let you cry
unless I don’t return tonight.

So many soldiers on the other side, I take their lives so they can’t take mine.
(Scared to make it out alive now murder’s all I know.)
Nobody tells me all the reasons we’re here. I have my weapons so there’s nothing to fear.
(Another day, another life, but nothing real to show for)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to God that our side is right.
Even though we won, I still may lose
Until I make it home to you
I see our mothers filled with tears,
grew up so fast where did those years go?
Memories won’t let you cry
unless I don’t return tonight.

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun would never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings can’t be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight.

Watching the death toll rise wondering how I’m alive.
Stranger’s blood on my hands, I’ve shot all I can
There are no silent nights, watching your brothers all die
To destroy all their plans with no thought of me
No thought of me, no thought of me

(Guitar Solos :))

Ohhhhh…

Walk the city lonely
Memories that haunt are passing by
A murderer walks your street tonight
Forgive me for my crimes; don’t forget that I was so young
Fought so scared in the name of God and country


#15

Well if you’re going to be Nazis about it, the song is by Joni Mitchell.


#16

I wasn’t being a Nazi about it and I started the thread… :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

I was kidding, mostly. Hah but anyway here’s another song of Joni’s. It actually has an interesting story to it. When Joni was younger she had a child and gave her up for adoption. When she became famous she wanted to find the child she gave up and wrote this song. The song contains clues to her daughter’s identity. It has a happy ending.

Born with the moon in Cancer
Choose her a name she will answer to
Call her green and the winters cannot fade her
Call her green for the children who’ve made her
Little green, be a gypsy dancer

He went to California
Hearing that everything’s warmer there
So you write him a letter and say "Her eyes are blue"
He sends you a poem and she’s lost to you
Little green he’s a non-conformer

Just a little green
Like the color when the spring is born
There’ll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
Just a little green
Like the nights when the Northern lights perform
There’ll be icicles and birthday clothes
And sometimes there’ll be sorrow

Child with a child pretending
Weary of lies you are sending home
So you sign all the papers in the family name
You’re sad and you’re sorry but you’re not ashamed
Little green have a happy ending

Just a little green
Like the color when the spring is born
There’ll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
Just a little green
Like the nights when the Northern lights perform
There’ll be icicles and birthday clothes
And sometimes there’ll be sorrow

I think it’s pretty neat anyway. And her stuff is very poetic.


#18

Yeah definitely poetic, very good stuff.


#19

Yeah but isn’t the story cool? I mean, finding your long lost daughter through a song is definitely something.


#20

Ohh, I’ve got a couple of lyrics that have meant something to me.

Die Toten Hosen
Pushed Again

Whispering voices in my head,
sounds like they’re calling my name.
A heavy hand is shaking my bed,
I’m waking up and I feel the strain.

This is actually my favorite song and is my cell phone ring tone, I relate this first part of the song to someone getting me out of bed - I like sleeping; good luck getting me up.

Offspring
You’re Gonna Go Far Kid

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

I enjoy this one as it’s a bit personal. With a convincing face and vocal tone, any lie can be passed off as the truth. I enjoy wearing different types of clothes, a kick back to good old ‘Dress up’. Then, I am stubborn and when I’ve become angry, I have sent people running. A few tricks my mother taught me.

Skillet
Whispers in the Dark

Despite the lies that you’re making
Your love is mine for the taking
My love is just waiting
To turn your tears to roses

I will be the one that’s gonna hold you
I will be the one that you run to
My love is a burning, consuming fire

No, you’ll never be alone
When darkness comes I’ll light the night with stars
Hear my whispers in the dark
No, you’ll never be alone
When darkness comes you know I’m never far
Hear the whispers in the dark
Whispers in the dark

You feel so lonely and ragged
You lay there broken and naked
My love is just waiting
To clothe you in crimson roses

I just like this whole song is all

SR-71
Goodbye

Now it’s there to see
You’ve forgiven me
Ever since I was the prince among thieves
So you hold me down
Strip away my crown

This one pretty much points to a part in my life where I was on top and had a lot of things stripped from me, due to very unjust reasons. But, I’m back on top now.
