    Self indulgent city: post the lyrics of song you love, but no explanation, only band/title/link

    X "I must not think bad thoughts"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSsCrFLGv6Q

    the facts we hate
    we'll never meet walking down the road
    everybody yelling "hurry up, hurry up!"
    but I'm waiting for you, I must go slow
    I must not think bad thoughts

    what is this world coming to?
    both sides are right but both sides are murdered
    I give up, why can't they?
    I must not think bad thoughts

    the civil wars and the uncivilized wars
    conflagrations leap out of every poor furnace
    the food cooks poorly and everyone goes hungry
    from then on it's
    dog eat dog, dog eat body, and body eat dog
    I can't go down there, I can't understand it
    I'm a no good coward
    and an american too, a north american that is
    not a south or a central or a native american
    oh, I must not think bad thoughts

    I'm guilty of murder of
    innocent men, innocent women, innocent children
    thousands of them
    my planes, my guns, my money, my soul
    my blood on my hands
    it's all my fault
    I must not think bad thoughts

    the facts we hate
    you'll never hear us
    I hear the radio, it's finally gonna play new music
    you know the british invasion
    but what about the
    minutemen, flesheaters, doa, big boys, and the black flag
    were the last american bands to get played on the radio
    please bring the flag, please bring the flag
    glitter disco synthesizer, night school
    all the noble savage drum drum drum
    astronauts go back in time to hang out with the cave people
    it's about time, it's about space
    it's about some people in the strangest places
    woody guthrie sang about b-e-e-t-s, not b-e-a-t-s
    I must not think bad thoughts
    I must not think bad thoughts
    the facts we hate

    Sisters Of Mercy- More

    Some people get by with a little understanding

    some people get by

    with a whole lot more

    I don't know why you've got to be so undemanding

    one thing I know

    I want more

    I want more

    (and I need all the love I can't get to)

    (and I need all the love I can get)

    ( and I need all the love I can't get to)

    Do you get scared to feel so much?

    To let somebody touch you?

    so hot, so cold, so far, so out of control

    hard to come by, and harder to hold

    There are parts of me that don't get nervous

    not the parts that shake

    You won't get what you deserve

    You are what you take

    learning to cry for fun and profit

    I'm not done yet

    counterfeit dollars for the English zloty

    anything I can get

    some people get by with a little understanding

    some people get by

    with a whole lot more

    I don't know why you've got to be so undemanding

    One thing I know

    I want more!!!

    Add those lyrics to a killer backbeat with scorching guitar and you've got one of th emost emotionally charged songs ever written. Andrew Eldritch could really add a desperate, seething emotion to any of the songs of the Sisters.

    I present for your viewing and listening pleasure - Deep Purple.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZFI7ISEuWw

    "Holy Man"

    Called to Madonna
    To give me a line
    She said boy what have you done
    Passing your time with a holy man
    Talking about the moon and sun
    But I can't tell the difference
    Between the fool and wise
    Show me a river to follow
    Away from all these lies

    I've been on my own so long
    Won't you lend me your hand
    I've been picking up my bones too long
    Won't you understand

    Called to the captain
    To put me ashore
    For it looked like no man's land
    Is this the way to follow
    I cried as I shook his hand
    He told me had no answer
    He didn't really hold the key
    I am a simple man
    Was all he said to me

    I've been on my own so long
    Won't you lend me a hand
    I've been out in the cold too long
    Won't you understand
    I've been on the road so long
    Won't you lend me your hand
    I've been out in the cold too long
    Won't you understand

    Heard my mother crying
    She was calling out my name
    Whisper in the dark night
    Saying who's to blame
    The hour glass keeps turning
    With not enought sand to see
    I am a holy man
    So don't you bother me

    I've been on my own so long
    Won't you lend me your hand
    I've been pickin' up my bones too long
    Won't you understand
    I've been on my own so long
    Won't you lend me your hand
    I've been out in the cold too long
    Won't you understand?

    I also give you Cinderella

    "Gypsy Road"

    I used to be now I'm not what you see, Lord I try
    And now it seems all those dreams have come true, but they're passing me by
    Some fast talkin' mama for a dollar put a smile on my face
    I'm drivin' all night
    I end up in the same old place

    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I drive all night just to see the light
    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I keep on pushin' cause it feels alright

    And who's to care if I grow my hair to the sky
    I'll take a wish and a prayer cross my fingers cause I always get by
    Some fast talkin' jerk for a dollar wiped the smile off my face
    I'm drivin' all night
    Just to keep the rat in the race

    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I drive all night just to see the light
    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I keep on pushin' cause it feels alright

    Sometimes I feel so old
    Got my lights burnin' bright
    But I'm lookin' pretty sold
    Sometimes I feel so cold
    So cold
    Let's go

    Got to get on home
    My gypsy road can't take me home
    My gypsy road can't take me home, t-t-take me

    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I drive all night just to see the light
    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I keep on pushin' cause it feels alright

    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I drive all night just to see the light
    My gypsy road can't take me home
    I keep on p-p-pushin'
    My gypsy road
    My gypsy road
    My gypsy road
    My gypsy road
    My gypsy road

    IRON MAIDEN

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geHLdg_VNww

     

    "Run To The Hills"

    White man came across the sea
    He brought us pain and misery
    He killed our tribes killed our creed
    He took our game for his own need

    We fought him hard we fought him well
    Out on the plains we gave him hell
    But many came too much for Cree
    Oh will we ever be set free?

    Riding through dust clouds and barren wastes
    Galloping hard on the plains
    Chasing the redskins back to their holes
    Fighting them at their own game
    Murder for freedom the stab in the back
    Women and children are cowards attack

    Run to the hills, run for your lives
    Run to the hills, run for your lives

    Soldier blue in the barren wastes
    Hunting and killing their game
    Raping the women and wasting the men
    The only good Indians are tame
    Selling them whiskey and taking their gold
    Enslaving the young and destroying the old

    Run to the hills, run for your lives

    Thanks Zilla, I was just looking for an excuse to post a classic Maiden video.  Dickinson's vocal range at the end of the song is amazing.  That's why he's at the top of my best Rock N Roll Voice list.

    "Unsatisfied," The Replacements.

     

    Look me in the eye
    Then, tell me that I'm satisfied
    Was you satisfied?
    Look me in the eye
    Then, tell me that I'm satisfied
    Hey, are you satisfied?

    And it goes so slowly on
    Everything I've ever wanted
    Tell me what's wrong

    Look me in the eye
    And tell me that I'm satisfied
    Were you satisfied?
    Look me in the eye
    Then, tell me I'm satisfied
    And now are you satisfied?

    Everything goes
    Well, anything goes all of the time
    Everything you dream of
    Is right in front of you
    And everything is a lie (or) And liberty is a lie

    Look me in the eye
    And tell me that I'm satisfed
    Look me in the eye
    Unsatisfied
    I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied
    I'm so dissatisfied
    I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied
    I'm so unsatisfied
    Well, I'm-a
    I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied
    I'm so dissatis,dissattis...

     The Seeker - The Who

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAbzlj3nf4EI

    I've looked under chairs
    I've looked under tables
    I've tried to find the key
    To fifty million fables

     
    They call me The Seeker
    I've been searching low and high
    I won't get to get what I'm after
    Till the day I die

    I asked Bobby Dylan
    I asked The Beatles
    I asked Timmothy Leary
    But he couldn't help me either

     They call me The Seeker
    I've been searching low and high
    I won't get to get what I'm after
    Till the day I die

    People tend to hate me
    'Cause I never smile
    As I ransack their homes
    They want to shake my hand

    Focusing on nowhere
    Investigating miles
    I'm a seeker
    I'm a really desperate man

    I won't get to get what I'm after
    Till the day I die

    I learned how to raise my voice in anger
    Yeah, but look at my face, ain't this a smile?
    I'm happy when life's good
    And when it's bad I cry
    I've got values but I don't know how or why

    I'm looking for me
    You're looking for you
    We're looking in at each other
    And we don't know what to do

     They call me The Seeker

    I've been searching low and high
    I won't get to get what I'm after
    Till the day I die

    Rush/The Garden/http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wztuqskio8

    In this one of many possible worlds,
    All for the best or some bizarre test?
    It is what it is and whatever,
    Time is still the infinite jest

    The arrow flies when you dream,
    The hours tick away,
    The cells tick away

    The Watchmaker keeps to his schemes,
    The hours tick away, they tick away

    The measure of a life is a measure of love and respect,
    So hard to earn so easily burned
    The measure of a life is a measure of love and respect,
    So hard to earn so easily burned

    In the fullness of time,
    A garden to nurture and protect

    In the rise and the set of the sun,
    'Til the stars go spinning,
    Spinning 'round the night
    Oh, it is what it is, and forever
    Each moment a memory in flight

    The arrow flies while you breathe,
    The hours tick away,
    The cells tick away,

    The Watchmaker has time up his sleeve,
    The hours tick away, they tick away

    The measure of a life is a measure of love and respect,
    So hard to earn so easily burned

    In the fullness of time,
    A garden to nurture and protect
    (It's a measure of a life)

    The treasure of a life is a measure of love and respect,
    The way you live, the gifts that you give

    In the fullness of time,
    It's the only return that you expect

    The future disappears into memory
    With only a moment between.
    Forever dwells in that moment,
    Hope is what remains to be seen.
    Forever dwells in that moment,
    Hope is what remains to be seen.

    In the fullness of time,
    A garden to nurture and protect

    In the fullness of time,
    A garden to nurture and protect
    (It's a measure of a life)

    In the fullness of time,
    A garden to nurture and protect
    (It's a measure of a life)

    In the fullness of time,
    A garden to nurture and protect

    (It's a measure of a life)
    (It's a measure of a life)

    What else is out there?  What's touched you?  This is my favourite song (Flexible Flyer) by my favourite band (Husker Du):

    Down on my flexible flyer
    To the bottom how fast I would go
    Just waiting for me under the tree
    And out in the snow

    A cowboy, a nurse or a fireman
    There's so many things that you can be
    You can set bigger goals, but set your soul
    Yeah, set your soul free

    Times, places and situations
    Lead us to an early grave
    When we get there we see
    Just what did we save?

    If your heart is a flame burning brightly
    You'll have light and you'll never be cold
    And soon you will know that you just grow
    You're not growing old

    If the wheels on your wagon are rusty
    You can paint them until they are new
    You can roll down a hill, but if you can't
    Then I pity you

    A Heart Needs A Home - Richard & Linda Thompson

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgK3Z1Qq2r4

    I know the way

    That I feel about you

    I'm never going to run away

    I'm never going to run away

    Never knew the way

    When I lived without you

    I'm never going to run away

    I'm never going to run away

    I came to you when

    No-one could hear me

    I'm sick and weary of being alone

    Empty streets and

    Hungry faces

    The world's no place when

    You're on your own

    A Heart Needs a Home.

    Some people say

    That I should forget you

    I'm never going to be a fool

    I'm never going to be a fool

    A better life, they say

    If I'd never met you

    I'm never going to be a fool

    I'm never going to be a fool

    Tongues talk fire and

    Eyes cry rivers

    Indian givers

    Hearts of stone

    Paper ships and

    Painted faces

    The world's no place when

    You're on your own

    A Heart Needs a Home.

    Neil Young - World On A String

     

    You know I lose, you know I win
    You know I call for the shape I'm in.
    It's just a game you see me play,
    Only real in the way
    That I feel from day to day.

    Although the answer is not unknown,
    I'm searchin', searchin', and how I've grown.
    It's not all right to say goodbye,
    And the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing.

    No, the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing.
    It's only real in the way
    That I feel from day to day.
    No, the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing.

    The Head And The Heart - Down In The Valley

     

    I wish I was a slave to an age-old trade
    Like ridin' around on railcars and workin' long days

    Lord have mercy on my rough and rowdy ways
    Lord have mercy on my rough and rowdy ways

    Call it one drink too many
    Call it pride of a man
    But it don't make no difference if you sit or you stand

    'Cause they both end in trouble and start with a grin
    Yeah they both end in trouble and start with a grin

    We do it over and over and over again
    We do it over and over and over again

    Oh-oh Oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh

    I know there's California, Oklahoma
    And all of the places I ain't ever been to but
    Down in the valley with
    Whiskey rivers
    These are the places you will find me hidin'
    These are the places I will always go
    These are the places I will always go

    I am on my way
    I am on my way
    I am on my way back to where I started

    Oh-oh Oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh

    One more for the stars and their eyes in the walls
    I hail your face and then, I saw you standing out

    I saw your face in the crowd and you came out
    You saw me crossing the valley and you came in

    Look at the sign on the door and it reads to me
    Just like the grass and the sign when you walked in

    Oh-oh Oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh

    I am on my way
    I am on my way
    I am on my way back to where I started

    California, Oklahoma
    And all of the places I ain't ever been to but
    Down in the valley with
    Whiskey rivers
    These are the places you will find me hidin'
    These are the places I will always go
    These are the places I will always go

    So I wish I was a slave to an age-old trade
    Lord have mercy on my rough and rowdy ways

    Bright Eyes - Sung by Art Garfunkel; written by Mike Batt

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a502RejLz8s

     

    Is it a kind of a dream
    Floating out on the tide
    Following the river of death downstream
    Oh is it a dream? 

    There's a fog along the horizon
    A strange glow in the sky
    And nobody seems to know where it goes
    And what does it mean? 

    Oh is it a dream?

    Bright eyes, burning like fire
    Bright eyes, how can you close and fail?
    How can the light that burned so brightly,
    Suddenly burn so pale? 

    Bright eyes

    Is it a kind of a shadow
    Reaching into the night
    Wandering over the hills unseen 

    Oh is it a dream? 

    There's a high wind in the trees
    A cold sound in the air
    And nobody ever knows where you go
    And where do you start? 

    Oh into the dark

    Bright eyes, burning like fire
    Bright eyes, how can you close and fail?
    How can the light that burned so brightly,
    Suddenly burn so pale? 

    Bright eyes

    Bright eyes, burning like fire
    Bright eyes, how can you close and fail?
    How can the light that burned so brightly,
    Suddenly burn so pale? 

    Bright eyes
