There are so many crap lyrics in the -core genres. I'm listening to Internal Affairs right now, and I'm rather sick of hearing crap like 'STRAIGHT EDGE IS MY LIFE! I'LL RIGHT FOR WHAT IS RIGHT!'

So kids, post your favorite lyrics.

There's a war going on outside no man is safe from
You can run but you can't hide forever.
From the fact that we're all gonna die alone
No one's looking out for you
Every man for himself.
You have your friends by your side
But in the end are they gonna be there for you?

Love, hate, kings, queens
You die alone in a cold world
Greed, lust, envy, trust
You get crushed in a cold world
Drugs, money, power, sex
What'd you expect in a cold world
Fight, fuck, coke, dust
All fucked up in a cold world.
#2
So pull the screaming trigger and watch your carcass bleed me dry
Or drop the gun and try to shake away the blindfold from your eyes?

PTH blindfolds aside, but thats the only one i can think of now, its aaaaall good

Unbreakable by Have Heart(www.myspace.com/haveheart)

He was a kind hearted man in a hateful world
And he caught everything that life ever hurled
Like the oldest mountain he always stood so tall
Forever showing what it means to be unbreakable

Paycheck to paycheck, three jobs a day
He's the ransom for his family's pain
In the coldest world with the warmest heart
He puts to shame what you consider hard

He's the man that you don't see in the mirror
While the world was scream death, he chose a different song to hear
He's the band that's playing while the ship sinks
The song of hope forever sings
He taught the sun to shine

Now please teach this son to shine

How can this world never break your warm heart in this frigid ****ing place?
You're like the river: always flowing and growing, never changing, rearranging
How can this world never take your solid stance in these turbulent times?
You're like the tree in the burning forest that never was burned down

And what he said to me was this:
"Just love the world that won't love you back"

Old man take a look at my life, I'm nothing like you are
Take a look at my life, I'm so very ****ing far
From the person I aspire to be
Unbreakable


Hands down, best hardcore song I've ever heard.

The concept of fashion is the one to blame:
Painting the portrait of conviction-less existence.
Well, it must be difficult being so gorgeous.
Claiming to be the kings and queens but it's all of nothing.
This shall pass. Megalomania.
congratulations on mutiliation for a life.
i'm going to hope for you, i'm going to pray for you amongst the wreckless and the
salvation lies within. my time is your's my friend.
We all find ourselves so horribly weak
I hate my sig

just kickin it with my bro's
straightedge for life
moshing at the hardcore show
beating faggots who dont know the NYHC
punching drunks when they give my crew a face

am i the only one who think's these lyrics speak to them?

There are tons but these came to mind:

Cold World - You Don't Hear Me Through

'What made you think I wouldn't turn my back on you
When you neglected me from day one.
Brought myself up in this cold world
Born to know I ain't no fortunate son
And to think you feel I owe you
A piece of my life
No thanks to you, but I can say
I know wrong from right

Want in my pocket, want a piece of my pie
Your love for me is a godamn lie.
You were never there for me.
When I felt pain in my life.

And to think you feel I owe you
A piece of my life
No thanks to you, but I can say
I know wrong from right

If there's a god in the sky.
Only he can judge me.
So until my dying day.
Stay the fuck out of my face.'

Sinking Ships - Give Up

If you close your eyes, never let it get inside, you'd still have to hide. You'd still have to fight to stay alive. It's coming out to take you, it's coming out to break your will. It's waiting every night to haunt the things you feel inside. These are the times that try our souls!

No future, no hope for anything more, where's the end, waiting to begin again. The saddest songs and the saddest lines only add up to empty lives. It's never ending, it never ends, and we cant begin again! It never ends and through our lives we still feel the same. so tie us to every love and every failure and every live. and hang us for everyone to see. Let our bodies tell the story, to the ones who never felt this way. fuck the ones who never felt this way! Close your eyes, dont let them see all the pain and all the lies. The words you meant to say. they'll follow you to your grave. The end is never ending!

Sick Of It All - America

Loyalty, I gave my loyalty
I gave my heart and my soul.
My heart and soul and all I could give
For a reason to live.
Fidelity, always fidelity
Putting everything I was aside
And I tried to be the best in their eyes.
How could they do this
How could they do this
How could they do this to me?
Suffering, the pain and suffering.
Being separate again, separate again
From what I hold dear.
And the shame of the tears
Disappeared, the honors disappeared.
With the betrayal of trust my body and being.
They washed their hands of me
Once and for all.
How could they do this
How could they do this
How could they do this to me?
This statistic wont lay down
Take a number or stand in line
This statistic wants to hear
That they're guilty about their crimes.
This statistic wont lay down
Take a number or stand in line

Ringworm - Justice Replaced By Revenge

we are the new generation
we don't care how you deceive
an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, we believe
tell us the price of our freedom
you tell us we're all born the same
united fall, injustice
in your name
now we can see, there's one choice
it's justice replaced by revenge
now we can see, there's no choice
it's justice replaced by revenge
our rights have been taken
high cost of our liberty
we are the fruit of a nation that's diseased
one hand the hammer of justice
the other the hammer of truth
who decides on how to retribute?
now we can see, there's one choice
it's justice replaced by revenge
now we can see, there's no choice
it's justice replaced by revenge

Shipwreck - Heated

im so ****ing heated
yet i can see my breath
searching for patience
i got none left
the streets so cold
still im boiling red
everythings exploding
inside of my head
my lungs are collapsing
grasping for air
looking for help
but theres no one there
dont know if i
can make it this time
im alone im enraged
im just trying to survive
why cant i ever
calm the **** down
why do i hate
everything around me
for no reason
i just get so ****ing pissed
worked up ovfer **** i shouldnt have to deal with
rage is what drives me
this **** is a fact
why should i love a world that wont love me back
pissing on everything in my view
i can only name a few
why should i love a world that wont love me back
why should i love a world that wont acknowledge me
i cdont believe it anything at all
except my hate
because its the only thing with me every ****ing day

Street by street.
Block by block.
Taking it all back.
The youth's immersed in poison--turn the tide
counterattack.
Violence against violence,
let the roundups begin.
A firestorm to purify the bane that society drowns in.



I didn't post this because I think it has the best lyrics, I just think Earth Crisis is hilarious
My style is impetuous.
My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.
I want your heart.
I want to eat your children.

I forgot these:

Good Clean Fun - In Defence Of All Life

Peaceful protest doesn't get the job done
So I wake up for the rally grab my soy milk and my gun
Breakfast with the family get the grub on see what's up
Then I saw my sister had milk in her cup
I jumped out of my chair and sprayed her with my mace
I yelled 'VEGAN POWER!' and I kicked her in the face
Dad was bugging, he started to run
But he's a meat eater so I pulled out my gun
Shot him in the back, then I shot his wife
That's how it's got to be in defense of all life.

When your "golden days"
are "that was just a phase..."
Lose yourself to reminisce
Pictures and innocence
Try to remember when you felt free and
The smiles just came so naturally...
You can't control your age
But you can control how you feel
Breathing dead air into broke lungs that
Once filled your heart
With the will to ****ing live
So when are you
Gonna cash in your raincheck?
(And on and on and on...)
Every second that goes by
Is one that's gone for good
Are you throwing away
Possible memories to a fevered life
Of "woulds" and "coulds?"
We may have missed our chance and
We may never be young again but
**** living a sick day life
**** dead beat kids
And **** your falsehoods
So when are you
Gonna cash in your raincheck?
(And on and on and on...)
I'm not dead yet
Ambitions... sorry, but I have none...
I'm just a confused kid
With the masses telling me
To join tradition...
But I ****ing can't...
I'd rather die than live like you
Do you ****ing get it?
I'd rather die than live like you
You don't ****ing get it
**** your falsehoods

Verse - Weather To A Stone

The reasons that I live
The way that I live
Are building up
And they'll continue to grow
I will never run
From where I stand
Even if it means
I'm standing here alone
I've seen the best of 'em fall away
I've come to learn
That even words written in stone
Can be eroded with TIME

Nothing More

Your words are ****
and I can see right through you
Writing songs to please
so kids fall to their knees
and worship what you do
Your words are ****
and I can see right through you
Writing songs to please
so kids fall to their knees
and worship WHAT YOU DO
Songs about nothing
just meaningless words
When your time to shine has passed
What the **** were your words worth?
NOTHING
NOTHING....
Just WORDS WORDS WORDS and nothing more
WORDS WORDS WORDS and nothing more
And nothing more...
and nothing...
nothing more
Foolish words spoken
that people hold up in the light
Savory to the ears of ones who follow your life
WORDS WORDS WORDS and nothing more
WORDS WORDS WORDS and nothing
...nothing
...nothing more
NOTHING MORE
WORDS WORDS WORDS and nothing more
WORDS WORDS WORDS and nothing more
WORDS WORDS WORDS and nothing more

Ruiner - Adhering To Superstition

i remember just how it used to be
when the nights were ****ing ours
and the sunrise made me feel so sick
things were much simpler and those summers last too long
but that feeling was as depressing as the day my eyes met yours.
we always talk about getting caught up in the moment
getting wrapped up in situations saying words we can never take back.
a four letter word, the most beautiful of things
but the one i used on you is the one i wish i truly could mean.
i never said a thing i only half meant
i dropped hints at being the worst man for the job
smashed clocks, broken mirrors
and my reflection, the one, i truly hate the most
i want my life back
days spent
months spent
years spent
saying
if
i
had
a
time machine
HELL YEAH

Martin, I've seen the ones you oughta bleed.
They've been driving around in their big stylish cars.
Well, I think they oughta feel your pain.
Yeah.
I think they oughta wear your scars.
'Cause what Ruby told you, well that was true.
Now you better lace up those boots.
'Cause only you know how it felt when the pretty girls looked at you that way.
And somebody is gonna hafta pay.
He's gonna get his revenge.
He's gonna crucify himself for the world's sins.
His name was Atchet.
He was one of them.
He was one of them.
He's coming through the swing door.
He doesn't give a **** no more.
Cause no one ever gave a **** about him.
A horrible little monster born into a life of pain.
The only way to relieve the hate:
Justice in the upper tiers of the corporate class tonight.
A little lesson on twisted wrongs and crooked rights.
If he could write the headline in the paper the very next day it would read...
Violence works in mysterious ways...
And somebody is gonna hafta pay...
Somebody's gonna hafta pay.
He's gonna get his revenge.
He's gonna crucify himself for the world's sweet sweet sins.
His name was
Atchet.
He was one of them.
He was a skin.
"Are you a messenger boy?"
"No, I'm the judge and jury.
If you're gonna call the cops...
You better ****ing hurry.

There's no use begging for your life.
You made your choice and now you pay the price...
You ****ing bastards!
Bastards!
Bastard!"

Ambitions - Uphill Battle
Sometimes I feel like we've given all we've got, and I'm tired of pretending I'm something that I'm not. So what's the point if it's not the truth? Different nights, same talk. So hard to align our thoughts, and I'm tired of regretting another moment's loss. So what's the point if it's not the truth? This is my confession: that I'll never change, and I won't back down again, or accept the blame. No fronts, no compromising, let's risk it all. Put our faults out on the table, even as we fall. It's in our hands, this is where we stand. It's in our hands, it's where we stand.

Avail - Order
Not impressed with who knows who
And it never really matters if you win or lose
Passively reject let the rats race on
Stand sound until they are gone
Have you rejected what you learned?
Is your resistance all that they heard?
Burn that phrase and then burn it again
Ignore the emphasis on competition
You protect you
There's no one keeping score
Fight the past it's you that you ignored
Turn away
What's become of us?
Has your persistence been ignored?

Alright, I've posted a ton already but On Thin Ice just came on and I had to post these, they are amazing.

On Thin Ice - The Ides Of March

I tied a rope called trust around my neck,
Then I went and hung myself on every word you never meant.
It's the hands that hold you up that will be the first to tear you down
The city lights that called us home just look like warnings now.
All these kids, so insincere they stole the heart right out of here.
In open graves I'm holding on to a moment that was never really there.
THANKS FOR NOTHING!
Through harder times and harder luck I killed myself for giving a fuck but NO MORE!
Another chapter for my hard life story,
ALL GUTS! NO FUCKING GLORY!
No more! No Way! I think I've seen enough!
No more! No way! I think you've done enough!
The tragedy is that I chose all of this.
Put the gun against my head and I still fucking missed
If suicide wasn't so cliche I'd spare us all another day of falling down and giving up
Deaths blue eyed boys run out of luck.......AGAIN!

This song is just amazing, it's so sincere and gets me going everytime.

Breakdown - (I Wanna See) A Street Fight lyrics

I like to see a street fight especially when it's on a weeknight
i dont care who's wrong or who's right
i just wanna see a street fight

walking down the street with my big mac
out of nowhere someone gets whacked
i dont care if youre white or black
start the violence. **** the facts.
i dont care who's wrong or who's right
i just wanna see a street fight

The Carrier - One Year Later...

I'm living in this world without you watching my own life pass me by.
I'm living in this world without you being a bystander to my own life.
I'm on the outside trying to look in.
I need to feel connected or else I'm going to lose it.
I'm waiting for my destiny to manifest in front of me.
The one thing I was sure of, the one thing I knew,
The only thing I thought I had, I ****ing blew.
I'm showering at two in the morning so no one can see me
Clean the filth I have come to be.
How can I focus on tomorrow when I can't live today.
I wanted hope, I wanted change. The stars have fallen from the sky.
I wanted hope, I wanted change, but now I'm ready to die.
You can't kill someone who's already dead.
You can't even begin to understand the thoughts in my head.
I beat my self over and over again about nothing, just sensing reality is dead.
I hate myself more than you ever can. And I'll hate myself until the very end.
I lost my heart the day the world went cold.
The sun doesn't rise to heat this godforsaken earth.
An image of you appeared as I began to cry. An image of you appeared as I slowly died. Cynical of this world, pessimistic on a whole.
Cynical of this world, pessimistic on a whole,
Living in the biggest lie, calling purgatory my only home.

'Turn Soonest to the Sea'

Do you remember how it was when you bled?
When you loved and burned in those flames that you've kept
Because Vesta's long been sleeping
Now you've come to accept that
anatomy defines more than a few of the gaping holes in our social fabric
And it defines more than a few one night stands,
more than a few prison bars melted into wedding bands

We've made you all the peasants and we've made ourselves the kings
Our queens are still subordinate as an angel {without wings}
But we make it easy to belong which means it's easy to be wrong
"Put some plastic in your tits, you'd look better as a blonde"

I remember when you were hopeful
never thought your life would be lived inside a coffin
With a moral sacrifice and a million social obligations, labels and expectations
When you were young and a modern seventeen in vogue and vague pursuit of a cosmopolitan dream

So when you bled on the bed as you fed those expectations as a ***** and not a human
You embraced with hesitation the very parameters of all you can be
Not a mother, not an aunt, not a sister that's not subdued
Because dignity is not physical and your flesh means more than you

Your flesh means more than you; your flesh means more than you
Your flesh means more than...
and I know....
Know we'll all wake up one day with a gun to the back of our brains
You'll be asking for your rib and I'll smile and I'll call you brave
Maybe someday when, when this bloody skull has dried
{I'll} know our city is in ruins
When our greatest source of pride
{is} a monument of dicks and ribs and the gender crown we wore
Where underneath, a plaque will read, a plaque will read, "No woman is a *****"


Such an epic song and the gang outro always gets me.

Sinking ships ~ Auburn

we cant breathe. its getting colder in the heart of this city. these are the reasons we have to leave. take it in. is desperation so god damn pretty? if we dont leave everything behind this place is going to bury us alive. hold this town in your heart and it will rot you from the inside out. were all scared by the small town disease, a black hold leaving us empty on those abandoned streets. it was colder then. (well **** back then) hold this town in your heart and it will rot you from the inside out. this is the town where we just cant seem to ever leave. these open fields are an easy bed to lay dow nand in die. this small town looks like a cemetery skyline. creeping taller one shattered dream at a time. coming back i can feel the sickness as i breathe the ashes of our broken dreams. we cant breathe. everything is falling apart across the county line and you can feel your heart start breaking.

Sinking Ships ~ Ghost story

been telling myself that it passes in time, that the words they erode as the light goes dim, and in time there will be peace and that time will erase and that time can break you down. held hostage by the past, held hostage by those days, and you want to escape and you want to remain, here. please dont let me forget. living in this disconnect. there are those times when you connect to the space left empty by the words you never exchanged, and you never heard. those words we simply felt. been breaking yourself, youve been counting on time and time can take so much to believe in. wish me luck, let me remember. and it scares me to know that one day i wont be haunted by your ghost (stay with me) that one day ill lay awake and struggle to remember a face (stay with me) it will be lost ill breathe, remembering that i wont remember anything (stay with me) it never stops.


these are the songs im thinking about right now

With Honor - Bridges and Gaps

I can't believe what i see,
It's so unreal the way you treat your friends,
And the fire you breathe, the words you speak
It's your disregard for love or maybe yourself... you have

Traded honesty for nothing at all

Maybe one day you'll understand why i can't agree, then you'll see through
All the lives that you've been living in, fork tongues and knives won't get
Us anywhere... and we'll rise above

But until then i'll cherish each opportunity i have to speak of hope, i'll
Be a foothold for truth

I'll reach out,
I'll challenge,
I'll be here waiting to pick you up

The current is strong, the water runs deep,
It takes someone real to stand against the world's attack, and i will carry
Your burden until the day you wake

Morning's come, with them come choices, the time is now to choose...
WILL YOU BE WASHED AWAY
I WILL NOT BE WASHED AWAY
I won't be washed away.

Patkway Drive - Romance Is Dead

The incisions is your wrist were all for show.
Just like you.
The epitome of self indulgence
another farce
A charade and another set of crocodile tears.
So serenade her with your last pathetic suicide love song

“Broken hearts never mend”.
But fools never move one.
And now she’s gone because of you.
And once again You’re the epitome of pure self destruction.
Cupid never found his mark.
As we await the insertion of blades on flesh.
You part the skin and tell of blades on blood.
So part the ****ing skin.
To tell the blades on blood.

She said.
She said goodbye.

So cry me a ****ing river bitch.

You wouldn’t Know love
if it crushed you ****ing chest.
Let go.
You wouldn’t know love
if it crushed your ****ing chest.
“razors, roses and a black tomorrow”

They never showed any affection
to anything but your ego.
A tragedy of errors at the best of times
You are everything that’s wrong with me.
You are everything that I despise.
You are everything I dreamed would die.
You are everything that fades away and slowly dies.

Will you bleed for me when suicide seems so yesterday?
Will you bleed for me?
Will you ****ing bleed for me when suicide...
It's so yesterday.
It's all so ****ing yesterday
So yesterday

Life Long Tragedy - Collecting Dust

On track to an early grave
And I don't stand a chance against the monsters
That my mind creates
I don't want to be here, I just want to be numb
Escape the ****ing people that believe in this system
You know they're watching
Counting on your mistakes
Waiting for failure
Can you carry the weight?
Once had a future, now I'm watching it die
Damn my reflection in the shadows of night
Listen closely, hear the whole world crumbling
Slowly breaking, patiently dissolving
And disgusted, being spoon-fed my death
I can taste it

**** my soul for collecting dust
I was down and out in the winter months
When I lost old friends that I used to trust
And left promises out in the rain to rust
Maybe I'm losing control
Cough up my lungs with the cynical
The older I get, still can't shake the doubt
Still dwell on the **** that drips out your mouth

So let it be known
Let the ****ing truth be told
You'll do your best to establish a life
On someone else's time
Your spirit's only borrowed...
And all you know
You miss the days
When you could've changed
Old stupid ways
And all the stars in your eyes
Have made it hard
To even want to be alive anymore


the whole record is really amazing lyrically, this just happened to be the song I was listening to at the moment

Shai Hulud - This Song: For the True and Passionate Lovers of Music

This song
I have this song to sing
Certain words must be screamed
Rather than be sung or spoken

I am alive and vigorous

As they toil without love
Fight without purpose
And live without passion...

I am alive and vigorous

In this song is where I belong

Within these moments there are no outsiders
Within the body of the song time stands still
One is all
And all is beautiful
This beautiful moment of song and passion

We will all sing
we will all dance

If a humans' nature is to war
This song is a battleground
And this voice a weapon
One thousand voices
Our trumpet call to arms

Passions' promise
True loves' reward
A pure expression in truth and sincerity

Passions' promise
True loves' reward, is this song

What will become of this song
Pray not a fallen banner
Or screamed words to the deaf
For life is weary without song or sound of harps

This is a song for the impassioned
This is strength for the hearts on sleeves

A shining sentiment where voices soar
And melody wells tears in the eyes

We will all sing the same song
This song
Together

My war, you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

You don't want to see me live
You don't want me to give
cause you're one of them

My war, you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

My war, you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

I might not know what a friend is
All I know is what you're not
cause you're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

I have a prediction
it lives in my brain
It's with me every day
it drives me insane
I feel it in my heart
that if I has a gun
I feel it in my heart
I'd wanna kill some
I feel it in my heart
the end will come
Come on!

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

Tell me that I'm wrong
Try to sing me your ego song
You're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

My War
#32
Livin' each day with a stick up your ass
Doin' it our way means having a blast
Every little thing seems to piss you off
You better ****in' chill, cause I've had enough

Turn that ****in' frown upside down
A little hard work, and we can turn it around
Life is too short to be down in the dumps
If you wanna chill with us, then you gotta loosen up

LOOSEN UP!

Tight pants and wallet chains
Hooded sweats & Adidas drive me insane
Dreadlocked crusties are hot and cant be beat
Just double up the condom and stay away from their feet

I LOVE HARDCORE BOYS, I LOVE BOYS HARDCORE!

Bi-hawks and studs are really hot
Emo kids whine, but i'll give em a shot
Tight pants-skinheads with bodies that stack
This whole damn scene makes my eyes roll back

I LOVE HARDCORE BOYS, I LOVE BOYS HARDCORE!

I love hardcore boys, its too good to be true
One on one or the whole damn crew
It's all exciting for us so lets give it a whirl
I love hardcore boys cuz they make my toes curl

Romulin-looking Justin clones got style
But sports wearing edgers are who we'd like to pile
After being with a peace punk in black
We're definite that you're never turning back

I LOVE HARDCORE BOYS, I LOVE BOYS HARDCORE!
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well, never mind,
We are ugly, but we have the music."

Intravenously polite
It was the walkie-talkies that knocked the pins down
As their shoes gripped the dirt floor in the silhouette of dying
Dancing on corpses' ashes

Yeah, they had plans for him
But he had spun the last of the pimps
Polyester satin nailed jewelry lips
While the guillotine just laughed again
Dancing on the corpses' ashes

And the paramedics fell into the wound
Like a rehired scab at a barehanded plant
An anesthetic penance beneath the hail of contraband
Dancing on the corpses' ashes

On my way nails broke and fell
Into the wishing well

They had defected and excommunicated
And all the pulses were subverted
And they made sure that the obituaries showed pictures of smoke stacks
Dancing on the corpses' ashes

a vivid dissection that mocked the strut of vivisection
A semi-automatic colony
And a silencing that still walks the streets
Dancing on the corpses' ashes

In the company of wolves was a stretcher made of cobblestone curfews
As the federales performed their custodial customs quite well
Dancing on the corpses' ashes

On my way nails broke and fell
Into the wishing well

Callous heels numbed in travel
Endless maps made by their scalpels
And you can't spell funeral
without fun
hope you had a good time
cuz now your life is done

Modern Life is War - Young Man on a Spree:

I'm in an awful state. It's getting late and I'm full of question. My overactive mind has been wastin' all my time. So I've been wandering aimless every night and sleeping every day. But it really doesn't matter anyways 'cause the second coming has been canceled since sometime around 1982 when Jesus looked down from his cloud and saw school kids...they were duck and covering. There's nothing gonna happen out there. So let's stay in. Just come on over and let me in. Outside my windows the sun could be shining but in my head it's all rain, rain and sirens. We'll have our own Hollywood scandal show. You wire me up. I'll be ready to go. I'll do anything. I'll assassinate all the stars of all of your bad dreams. I'll be all yours just as long as you stay here with me 'cause I don't wanna be alone when these walls start closing in.

Verse - From Anger and Rage:

Clenched fist I'm in a rage
I can't control my anger now
The more they lie to us
The more I want to bring them down
Everywhere we turn
We're being told how we should be
I feel like I'm being forced into a mold
That just doesn't fit me
FROM ANGER AND RAGE
Comes rebellion
These money hungry men
Control our sight
And distort the truth that we so desperately seek
Telling us that we're wrong
For the way we live our lives
I know there are far too many
Who feel just like us
From anger and rage
COMES REBELLION
Your billboard's temptation
Just a hangman's noose
A constant campaign
To sell us your "truth"
Can't live life on our knees
Or believe lies we're fed
Won't let them get to us
The movement's not dead

Gorilla Biscuits - Degredation:

Tell me who's pure. tell me who's right. tell me the last time you fought a fair fight. a loser's way to find some friends, you look like a skin but that's where it ends. true, they're always at our shows, it doesn't mean we fit in with their hatred and racism ****. they ruin our name, you know
what i mean. racial supremacists degrade our scene. you know you can kiss my ass before i read your zine. there's no good side to this white power scene. kids beat down for standing up. your turn will come because we've all had enough. you look like kids we know. you're not
welcome here. you don't like music and we don't like fear. i guess it's your right to be proud that you're white. are you here for music or just to pick fights. don't fool yourself cause you don't fool me. it's not just blacks you hate, it's everyone you see. rich, poor, young and old, whoever's
in your way. what a boring life, hating every day. you've got nothing but hatred!

Great thread, lyrics are so important. Fucking anything by MLIW gets my vote, ive been listneing to the song 'I'm Not Ready' a hell of a lot lately, it goes a little something like this:

in this life there are no clean breaks
but starting again is a chance that you can take.
i always thought that someday we would overcome the bad luck
and from the burden the gift would come.
maybe i should have known better, but i know we're coming closer
to the end of whatever this has been.
when you're 16 you dont know what forever means,
when you are 23 you couldnt be more sorry to say,
that after all this growing up together all the good has gone away.
sometimes the boys that should be your best friends
become strangers with familiar faces.
just dont tell me that it's all too far gone
that they weren't meant to live on
and dont let go.
i just dont want to have to pretend
if were not in this together
if we're just stuck inside our own heads.
and im sorry that it took me so long
to find the words to write the song that we can all still truly believe in
but i truly believe that we can still start again

CHALKLINE - We see the billboard girl
the one devoted to ritual
standing in the rain
holding all of her pain inside


I know you're hurting now
but I can't point my finger at
the words I should or shouldn't say
anything
to take the pain away


to walk alone on the streets tonight
and fear nothing
to choose to love what we are in this life
and shine brighter
don't let the crosses and dollar signs
the symbols of man unkind
make you feel
that you're not real
all this time walk out
out of the shadows


we see the lines in chalk
the warning sign for where we walk
in the shadows of the cities maze
to try and fight
for better days


yeah we're ungrateful
yeah we're ungrateful for
holy books, religious men
values of beauty, original sin
all this time we unwind it
i won't give up, i'm not afraid


Resister go
as long as it takes
to reverse the hypocrisy
challenge the stakes
of safety and survival
at the heart
of women's voices
women's art


to walk alone on the streets tonight
and fear nothing
to choose to love what we are in this life
all that matters
don't let the crosses and dollar signs
the symbols of man unkind . . .
I won't give up
through all this time walk out
out of the shadows


if we take
our strength
to market
to trade
for their
ugly
beauty
watch us
grow up
to war

CONVECTUOSO- I am CALIGULA
Glutton of Gluttons
Men over women
Man over woman
The ***** of all men
And I...
Am not ashamed to admit, it's not enough to say "I love all of you"
And I'm aroused
When you lying, you lying
We are OK, in a misguided Sadist way
We are OK
We are OK, in a disabled veteran way
We are OK

Can i ever begin to imagine
the terrible itch in mine
it haunts your mind
the family of five
the end in mind

I dine with wolves again
I travel with theives again
What did I teach you?
What did I teach you?
Your lying, your lying

We are OK, in a misguided Sadist way
We are OK
We are OK, in a disabled veteran way
We are OK

So don't confuse why we put you here
For your automation for individuality
A NOTCH ON MY BELT IS HOW YOU SHALL EXIST
A notch on my bedpost is how you shall exist
No more, no less for the COMMON good
Thats you, American womanhood
Thats you, American womanhood

It haunts your mind(the end in mind)(A lot of times)

We are OK, in a misguided Sadist way
We are OK
We are OK, in a disabled veteran way
Were so cold

NOT OUR PROPERTY-
We designate our higher rank, then subjugate those of a "lesser" state.
We construct the definitions to reinforce our dominant positions
and now that we've established us and them, we feel a peace of mind.
Similarities? Coincidence, dismissed; all doubts are set aside.

But don't look in the mirror
you may not like what you find
'cause when the doubts return you'll see
that being human doesn't mean we have the right
to do whatever the **** we please.

Is it lack of compassion, or a love of control?
Dare I speculate? Do I want to know?
I renounce that mindset;
I offer my respect to the non-human animals I share this earth with.

Their existence is not defined by our status in comparison.
They're so much more than biological instruments.

Pain is pain across the board.
Your rationalizations hold no more.
Superior to what!?
So as long as you maintain your present course,
that train of thought let me tell you that:
I'll live my life resisting as long as you keep riding that train of thought.

RESPIRATION- [Mos Def]
The new moon rode high in the crown of the metropolis
Shinin, like who on top of this?
People was tusslin, arguin and bustlin
Gangstaz of Gotham hardcore hustlin
I'm wrestlin with words and ideas
My ears is picky, seekin what will transmit
the scribes can apply to transcript, yo
This ain't no time where the usual is suitable
Tonight alive, let's describe the inscrutable
The indisputable, we New York the narcotic
Strength in metal and fiber optics
where mercenaries is paid to trade hot stock tips
for profits, thirsty criminals take pockets
Hard knuckles on the second hands of workin class watches
Skyscrapers is collosus, the cost of living
is preposterous, stay alive, you play or die, no options
No Batman and Robin, can't tell between
the cops and the robbers, they both partners, they all heartless
With no conscience, back streets stay darkened
Where unbeliever hearts stay hardened
My eagle talons STAY sharpened, like city lights stay throbbin
You either make a way or stay sobbin, the Shiny Apple
is bruised but sweet and if you choose to eat
You could lose your teeth, many crews retreat
Nightly news repeat, who got shot down and locked down
Spotlight to savages, NASDAQ averages
My narrative, rose to explain this existance
Amidst the harbor lights which remain in the distance

So much on my mind that I can't recline
Blastin holes in the night til she bled sunshine
Breathe in, inhale vapors from bright stars that shine
Breathe out, weed smoke retrace the skyline
Heard the bass ride out like an ancient mating call
I can't take it y'all, I can feel the city breathin
Chest heavin, against the flesh of the evening
Sigh before we die like the last train leaving

[Talib Kweli]
Breathin in deep city breaths, sittin on ****ty steps
we stoop to new lows, hell froze the night the city slept
The beast crept through concrete jungles
communicatin with one another
And ghetto birds where waters fall
from the hydrants to the gutters
The beast walk the beats, but the beats we be makin
You on the wrong side of the track, lookin visibly shaken
Taken them plungers, plungin to death that's painted by the numbers
with crime unapplied pressure, cats is playin God
but havin children by a lesser baby mother but **** it
we played against each other like puppets, swearin you got pull
when the only pull you got is the wool over your eyes
Gettin knowledge in jail like a blessing in disguise
Look in the skies for God, what you see besides the smog
is broken dreams flying away on the wings of the obscene
Thoughts that people put in the air
Places where you could get murdered over a glare
But everything is fair
It's a paradox we call reality
So keepin it real will make you casualty of abnormal normality
Killers Born Naturally like, Mickey and Mallory
Not knowing the ways'll get you capped like an NBA salary
Some cats be emceeing to illustrate what we be seeing
Hard to be a spiritual being when **** is shakin what you believe in
For trees to grow in Brooklyn, seeds need to be planted
I'm asking if y'all feel me AND THE CROWD LEFT ME STRANDED
My blood pressure boiled and rose, cause New York niggaz
actin spoiled at shows, to the winners the spoils go
I take the L, transfer to the 2, head to the gates
New York life type trife the Roman Empire state

[Mos Def and crew]
So much on my mind I just can't recline
Blastin holes in the night til she bled sunshine
Breathe in, inhale vapors from bright stars that shine
Breathe out, weed smoke retrace the skyline
Yo don't the bass ride out like an ancient mating call
I can't take it y'all, I can feel the city breathin
Chest heavin, against the flesh of the evening
Sigh before we die like the last train leaving

[spanish speaking woman] Escuchela..Respirando como yo...Ojos Sinceros, Escondiendo pena y temor...Silencio de mentira, Entre el hogar escapando sentimientos entre eya y yo...

[Common]
Yo...on The Amen, Corner I stood lookin at my former hood
Felt the spirit in the wind, knew my friend was gone for good
Threw dirt on the casket, the hurt, I couldn't mask it
Mixin down emotions, struggle I hadn't mastered
I coreograph seven steps to heaven
And hell, waiting to exhale and make the bread leavened
Veteran of a cold war It's Chica-I-go for
What I know or, what's known
So some days I take the bus home, just to touch home
From the crib I spend months gone
Sat by the window with a clutched dome listenin to shorties cuss long
Young girls with weak minds, but they butt strong
Tried to call, or at least beep the Lord, but didn't have a touch-tone
It's a dog-eat-dog world, you gotta mush on
Some of this land I must own
Outta the city, they want us gone
Tearin down the 'jects creatin plush homes
My circumstance is between Cabrini and Love Jones
Surrounded by hate, yet I love home
Ask my God how he thought travellin the world sound
Found it hard to imagine he hadn't been past downtown
It's deep, I heard the city breathe in its sleep
Of reality I touch, but for me it's hard to keep
Deep, I heard my man breathe in his sleep
Of reality I touch, but for me it's hard to keep

[Mos Def and crew]
So much on my mind I just can't recline
Blastin holes in the night til she bled sunshine
Breathe in, inhale vapors from bright stars that shine
Breathe out, weed smoke retrace the skyline
Yo how the bass ride out like an ancient mating call
I can't take it y'all, I can feel the city breathing
Chest heavin, against the flesh of the evening
Kiss the Ide's goodbye, I'm on the last train leaving
