The Last Command

By WASP

You don't know what's in our hearts
This is our time, we've made our mark
And can't you understand, we'll fight till we fall?
But what do you want to do?
The time is right for you
To stand on your feet and answer the call

Stand up, for the first time, and shout it, woah-oh
The last command is heard across the land
Stand up, for the first time, and cry out, woah-oh
Hear the call we are, the Last Command

A thousand times I had this dream, the flag was high I heard a scream
That cut through the still of the night just like a knife
But that was yesterday, the darkness has gone away
I stand on the edge, and I pledge my life

Stand up, for the first time, and shout it, woah-oh
The last command is heard across the land
Stand up, for the first time, and cry out, woah-oh
Hear the call we are, the Last Command

The destiny that I control will sever
And break the bonds and set me free forever!

Stand up, for the first time, and shout it, woah-oh
The last command is heard across the land
Stand up, for the first time, and cry out, woah-oh
Hear the call we are, the Last Command
 
Handing Out Bullets

By HALFORD

Cowards are unholy
Parasites that hide
Detonate the human bomb
Hands are all awash in blood

Carnage from the scriptures
Slaughter of the lamb
Break the neck of the white dove
Run down by the tracks above

Whip the back
Of your messiah
Your peace kills by death

Bow your head
The prayer calls to violence
That history rejects

Waiting wall of murder
Consummating hate
League of perpetuity
Will open wounds of disbelief

Through self immolation
You desecrate the ground
Annihilate the innocents
In crucifixion crashing down

Whip the back
Of your messiah
Your peace kills by death

Bow your head
The prayer calls to violence
That history rejects

Motuhs are spitting venom
Shocked senseless by the grief
Another day of dying
As your terror cry abominates

Mushroom cloud is coming
Hanging by the nails
Gasoline the olive branch
Start digging up more body pits

Whip the back
Of your messiah
Your peace kills by death

Bow your head
The prayer calls to violence
That history rejects
 
Golgotha

By HALFORD

Golgotha, rise up from your tomb
Devil's had a taste of holy water
Lost children need your guiding hand
Take them through the fire of the promised land

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine

Grand Canyon, source of all our dreams
Protected from a billion years of evil
Golden fire - thunder all around
Covenants will cover up you sinners

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine

Overcoming tyranny to desecrate the entity - satanical
Laying waste this sick disease
That crippled, maimed, feel to our knees - like Jericho

Pile of skulls crunched under foot
Torched remains are crying out - satanical
Rising up to purge and scourge the killing of our paradise - like Jericho

Salvation...

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine
 
Wrath Of Gods

By HALFORD

White swords of blinding razor light
Blast round the earth
Validating with immortal strength
Courage of the brave

From the aftermath of dust and flames
Resilience soars
Upon the searing light's reflected blade
That guards and saves

The dark sky
The victims
The air is full of vengeance

From now on
No mercy
The wrath of God
Reins on you

These monuments of power and steel
Carved in each soul
Stand forever indestructible
For all mankind

The face of mighty nations liberty
In stoic resolve
For all the hated evil that men can do
Will be avenged

The dark sky
The victims
The air is full of vengeance

From now on
No mercy
The wrath of God
Reins on you

It's over
You're wasted
Now you're incinerated

In hell
I'll meet you
And once again
Defeat you

And though the light is dimmed to black someday
Inside it burns
A raging fire to virtues endless war
And freedom's cause

The dark sky
The victims
The air is full of vengeance

From now on
No mercy
The wrath of God
Reins on you

It's over
You're wasted
Now you're incinerated

In hell
I'll meet you
And once again
Defeat you
 
"Dirty Laundry" - Don Henley

I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something that I can use
People love it when you lose
They love dirty laundry

Well I could have been an actor
But I wound up here
I just have to look good
I don't have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
We need dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em all around

We got the bubble-headed bleach blonde
Comes on at five
She can tell ya 'bout the plane crash
With a gleam in her eye
It's int'resting when people die
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation
Is the head dead yet
Y'know the boys in the newsroom
Got a running bet
Get the widow on the set
We need dirty laundry

You don't really need to find out
What's going on
You don't want to know just
How far it's gone
Just leave well enough alone
Keep your dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em where they sit
Kick 'em all around

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers
In ev'rybody's pies
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do the innuendo
We can dance and sing
When it's said and done we haven't
Told you a thing
We all know that crap is king
Give us dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em all around
 
Fell in Love With a Girl / The White Stripes

Fell in love with a girl
I fell in love once and almost completely
She's in love with the world
Sometimes these feelings can be so misleading
She turns and says, "Are you all right?"
I said "I must be fine, because my heart's still beating"
"Come and kiss me by the riverside"
Bobby said it's fine he don't consider it cheating

Red hair with a curl
Mellow roll for the flavor and the eyes for peeping
Can't keep away from the girl
The sides of my brain need to have a meeting
Can't think of anything to do
My left brain knows that all love is fleeting
She's just lookin' for somethin' new
Well, I said it once before but it bears repeating
 
In the Navy - The Village People

In the Navy, come on and join your fellow, man.
In the Navy, come on, people, and make a stand.

protecting the land and sea.

They want you! They want you!

Beautiful Streamer

Beautiful streamer, open for me,
Blue skies above me and no canopy;
Counted nine thousand, waited too long,
Reached for my rip cord, the darn thing
was gone.

Beautiful streamer, why must it be?
White silk above me is what I should see
Just like my mother that looks over me;
To hell with the rip cord, 'twas not made
for me.

Beautiful streamer, follow me down,
Time is elapsing and here is the ground;
Six hundred feet and then I can tell
If I'll go to heaven or end up in hell.

Beautiful streamer, this is the end,
Gabriel is blowing, my body won't mend;
All you jump-happy sons of a gun,
Take this last warning as jumping's no fun.

C-130 Rolling Down the Strip

C-130 rolling down the strip

Airborne daddy on a one way trip

Mission uncertain, destination unknown

We don't know if we're ever coming home

Stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door

Jump right out and count to four

If my main don't open wide

I got reserve by my side

If that one should fail me too

Look out ground I'm coming through

Hit the drop zone with my feet apart

Legs in my stomach and feet in my heart

If I die on the old drop zone

Box me up and ship me home

Pin my wings upon my chest

Bury me in the leaning rest


When I go to Heaven

When I go to Heaven,
St. Peter's going to say,
"How did you earn your livin'?"
"How did you earn your pay?"
My reply was with a little bit of thunder
"I earned my living killing down under."

When I go bars
The girls they will say
"How did you earn your living?"
"How did you earn your pay?"
My reply was with a cool kind of nod
"I earned my living killing commies for my God."

When I go home
The hippies they will say
"How did you earn your living?"
"How did you earn your pay?"
My reply as I pulled out my knife
"Get out of my way before I take your life."
 
Travellin Soldier
Bruce Robison

Two days past eighteen
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
Sat down in a booth, in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy but she give him a smile
So he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talkin' to me
I'm feelin' a little low
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go
So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you

I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
"Too young for him" they told her
Waitin' for the love of the travellin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
My soldier's comin' home

The letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
He told her of his heart - It might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's gettin' kinda rough over here
I think of that day sittin' down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while

I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
"Too young for him" they told her
Waitin' for the love of the travellin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
My soldier's comin' home

One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
A man said
Folks would you bow your head for the list of local Vietnam dead
Cryin' all alone under the stands
Was the piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
"Too young for him" they told her
Waitin' for the love of the travellin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter says
My soldier's comin' home
 
"Suite Madame Blue" by Styx
Written by Dennis DeYoung
Lead vocals by Dennis DeYoung

Time after time I sit and I wait for your call
I know I'm a fool but why can I say
Whatever the price I'll pay for you, Madame Blue
Once long ago, a word from your lips and the world turned around
But somehow you've changed, you're so far away
I long for the past and dream of the days with you, Madame Blue

Suite Madame Blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Suite Madame Blue, the future is all but past
Dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
You conquered the world and more ..............heaven's door

America....America...America..America..
America....America...America..America..
America....America...America..America..

Red white and blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Red, white, and blue, the future is all but past
So lift up your heart, make a new start
And lead us away from here
 
Nothing can pass this line
Unless it is well defined...

You once believed that crazy accidents were happening to you,
You were chasing a capricious whim.
Whenever bad luck and trouble happened to pursue you
The dice would surely save your skin.
But once you look back you must realize
That nothing in your life's divine.
Everything that's ever befallen you
Happened simply 'cause it crossed your mind.

You're crashing by design!
Nothing can pass this line
Unless it is well defined...
You'll just have to be resigned
To crashing by design.

-Pete Townshend, "Crashing By Design"
 
The Rice
by David Gray

The drafts blew cold
Under the door
When we threw our clothes
To the kitchen floor
The broccoli boils
In a pan on the gas stove
Where you stand
Won't you take this
Spatula in your hand

Let the rice burn
It cannot deter my love
For you
We have no concern
Under the hem of the night

Out on the roof
Over haggard streets
Where the sky has a blanket
Each sweet kiss
So melodramatic
Embroidered by shadow
By the fridge I reminisce

Let the rice burn
It cannot deter my love
For you
We have no concern
Under the hem of the night

We staggered a doorway
And all of a sudden
The drum of the rain
On the heather hills
Now everything's changed
And our silence is bitter
And you are all unhinged

Let the rice burn
It cannot deter my love
For you
We have no concern
Oh we have no concern
Oh we have no concern
Under the hem of the night
 
Pink Floyd
Dogs
You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
get older.
And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south,
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man,
All alone and dying of cancer.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown.
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw
around.
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,
Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused.
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used.
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this
maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend.
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everything's done under the sun,
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain.
Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
Who was told what to do by the man.
Who was broken by trained personnel.
Who was fitted with collar and chain.
Who was given a seat in the stand.
Who was breaking away from the pack.
Who was only a stranger at home.
Who was ground down in the end.
Who was found dead on the phone.
Who was dragged down by the stone.
 
Dedicated to some of the people at my office...

You start a conversation, you can't even finish it.
You're talking a lot -- but you're not saying anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?

-Talking Heads, "Psycho Killer"
 
Turn The Heat Up - Shemekia Copeland

Now every woman wants a man,
A man who keeps his cool.
Ain't nothin' worse than hangin' out,
With some silly-actin' fool.
Now I'm sure you got your reasons,
For movin' cool and slow -
But when it comes to lovin'
I ain't no eskimo!
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Before this lovin' turns cold.

When I first set my eyes on you,
I thought you were my hero.
But now your kisses they are tastin'
Something like fourteen degrees below zero.
You know that I don't want to leave you,
For someone else instead,
But I'm gettin' tired,
Of wearin' my overcoat to bed.
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
'fore this lovin' turns cold.

Well we start a little fire,
When we hug and squeeze.
I'm gonna warm you up with kisses,
Works just like antifreeze.
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
'fore this lovin' turns cold.

Chilly way you treat me,
Baby keeps tearin' us apart.
Oh well sometimes I get the feelin'
You got an iceberg for a heart.
You know I really love you,
You know I really care,
But I think your bedroom,
Was made by Frigidaire.
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
'fore this lovin' turns cold.

My love's hotter than an oven,
That's what I've been told.
And when we get to cookin' honey,
We can melt the whole north pole.
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
Let's turn the heat up baby,
'fore this lovin' turns cold!

I've got my love to keep me warm - Frank Sinatra

The snow is snowin'
And the wind is blowin'
But I will weather the storm.
What do I care how much it may storm -
I've got my love to keep me warm.

I can't remember,
A worse December.
Just you watch those icicles form,
What do I care if those icicles form -
I've got my love to keep me warm.

Off with my overcoat,
Off with my gloves.
Who needs an overcoat -
I'm burnin' with love.
My heart's on fire,
And the fire gets higher,
So I will weather the storm,
What do I care how much it may storm -
I've got my love to keep me warm.

Welcome to the Machine
Pink Floyd

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
Where have you been? It's alright we know where you've been.
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time, provided with toys and
'Scouting for Boys'.
You bought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn't like school, and you know you're nobody's fool,
So welcome to the machine.

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream? It's alright we told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star, he played a mean guitar,
He always ate in the Steak Bar. He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the machine.
 
From one of my favorite movies, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

(chorus) In constant sorrow through his days

I am a man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my day.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.

(chorus) The place where he was born and raised

For six long years I've been in trouble
No pleasures here on earth I found
For in this world I'm bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now.

(chorus) He has no friends to help him now

It's fare thee well my old lover
I never expect to see you again
For I'm bound to ride that northern railroad
Perhaps I'll die upon this train.

(chorus) Perhaps he'll die upon this train.

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave.

(chorus) While he is sleeping in his grave.

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
My face you'll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given
I'll meet you on God's golden shore.

(chorus) He'll meet you on God's golden shore
 
Gimmie Shelter -- Rolling Stones

Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today.
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away.

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.

Ooh, see the fire sweepin'
Our very street today.
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way.

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today.
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away.

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
 
"You're Still The One"
Shania Twain


(When I first saw you, I saw love.
And the first time you touched me, I felt love.
And after all this time, you're still the one I love.)

Looks like we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday

Bridge:
They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

Chorus:
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missn'

Bridge

Chorus

I'm so glad we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
