THE KIDS ARE ALL WRONG
Def, watching cars and focus on one untill it's gone Heroes die off everyday Like fathers who would never stay The kids are all wrong (repeat) They're full of their hopeless opinion The kids are all wrong(repeat) That's all I ever really learned
LEAVE THE LIGHT ON
So please leave the light on after you've gone Leave the pictures in their aging frames up where they belong Leave the bedsheets unclean and they will reek of you still Cover me in resolve So please leave the imagery I can twist it Dissociation and obsession Superstition and pain I can carry them on too and bury you once again If I could bring this memory to life I'd apologize I live to hear you say what they can't I would make amends They'd all love to have you back but... I'd give anything to bring you back to say goodbye
ISLAND OF SHAME
One summer morning He left us ashamed In some small town of small ways The one they feared They might turn to stone They feared to hold his hand And he died alone Don't leave them on - an island of shame Your solution You - homophobic You - coward You send them away to an island of misery You're not immune to any disease I can not argue when the truth is plain to see In your beliefs, your fear of death I see reflections of society We'll take our last breath - alone Adding insult to injuries - He was alone.
KNOW IT ALL
Look at the world in disbelief You used to follow - now you lead College has enlightened you And you are proud to be different And like different bands - different types You ain't nobody's fool It's like certain bands remind you of someone you hated 'Cause they didn't wear the right clothing And there's only one true fashion Alot of the bands on the college charts are great bands until they get signed. Then you hate them It's such bullshit - you used to love them you hypocrite I remember you and I listening to bands that we liked Only the songs mattered to you But now you're a D.J. and preaching that hype 'Corporate Rock Sucks' 'You know, college radio enlightens you' It's supposed to serve as a means to expose new bands without prejudice, but it makes no sense Safe harbor for the underground 'Til the alternative becomes the popular sound The bands are good 'til they make enough cash to eat food and get a pad Then they're sold out and their music is cliché Because talent's exclusive to bands without pay Know it all - Did you really listen to that song? Could you ever write what you call wrong?
They make your bed, don't they Long ago they fought and died for faith - what's changed ? It's said that we've acquired tolerance to build more bridges Cross those rivers, yet modern man enslaves his conscious and the undertow of blame still flows between Give it birth to the machine - hostilities of ancestry Slow to understand the variance - quick to judge on one aspect - rust We call them fools today - they will call us fools in days to come - always In any age it's ignorance He that he's not with me is against me The river of pride swells to high, washing those bridges out to sea Give it birth to the machine Too proud to love - Too proud Soaking in your fears - rusting away Never comprehending - always condescending Slow to understand the variance - quick to judge - quick to condem Carried them for years - stones that they once cast Place the blame on them as if it were their past Yesterdays distrust Resent, Regret, disgust Still we pay for their living - pay for their mistakes Who will cast the latest stones of hate Pay for their misgivings - pay for their living - still we find that on the surface there is rust
oh dear there r too many to put on all punk songs rule apart from a few, OH MY GOODNESS I LOVE PUNK!
yea like yeti said 'White America' has such meaningful lyrics. I would say eminem has some of the most powerful lyrics of this generation, especiallon The Eminem Show. 'Cleanin out my Closet' and the song w/ the Aerosmith verses and 'Hailie's Song' have such tight lyrics.
'There are only two powers in the world...the sword of the oppressor and the spirit of the oppressed. In the long run, the sword is always defeated by the spirit.'
Boy Sets Fire, definitely some of the most incredible lyrics ranging from the government, to rape, to unemployment. I think Unspoken Request has to be one of the greatest songs of all time. Fugazi is my second choice...basically any of Ians bands rule, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring...fugazi
The irony is that you totally suck and the look down on me and I dont give a f---. Cause I hate assholes...
I f---ing hate you and all of your kind. You, I hate You
-THE SUICIDE FILE
