Raconteurs - Together

"You wrote our names down on the sidewalk
The rain came and washed 'em off
So we should write 'em again on wet cement
So maybe people a long time from now will know what we meant"

Style - Prince  :)

Style is not something that comes in a bottle
Style is more like Jackie O. when she was doin' Aristotle
Style is not a logo that sticks 2 the roof of one's ass
Style is like a second cousin 2 class
 
Style ain't sittin' court side with the owner of the team
Style is owning the court and charging 'em all a fee
Style is not lusting after someone because they're cool
Style is loving yourself 'til everyone else does 2
 
Style don't get drunk on a Saturday night
Try 2 dress up every Sunday mornin' bright
Style don't get married then break the vow in a year
Style is keepin' a promise
Raise your hand y'all if U hear me
 
Style is not biting style when U can't find the funk
Style is the face U make on a Michael Jordon dunk
Style ain't the jeep U bought when U know your broke ass got bills
Style is lettin' your lover drive while U talk on the phone and chill
 
Style is a gold-tooth smile with an attitude
Style is a peaceful wild postin' the rude
Style is growing your own food
Style is a non-violent march
Style is an accurate account of what's inside every heart
 
Style is not a lie
Style is a man that cries
Style is the glow in a pregnant woman's eyes
 
Style is buying your moms a house
Style is a clean mouth
Style is puppy breath
Style is no fear of death
Style is Ali's jab
Style is hailing a cab
Then U know, givin' 'em the finger when they pass your ass!

Style is Mayte in the shower
Style is a soul new power
Style is when all black men are free
Style is U and me

Tombstone Blues - Bob Dylan

I wish I could write you a melody so plain that could hold you dear lady from going insane.
That could ease you and cool you and cease the pain, of your useless and pointless knowledge.

Closer - Nine Inch Nails

You can have my isolation
You can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith
You can have my everything

(Help me...)
You tear down my reason
(Help me...)
It's your sex I can smell
(Help me...)
You make me perfect
Help me become somebody else

Chicks Dig Jerks - Bill Hicks. 

Oh, Hitler had Eva Braun
Manson had Squeaky Fromme
Ted Bundy got lots of dates
I wonder what I'm doing wrong

I don't pretend to understand
Women's little quirks
Just one thing I know for sure
Chicks dig jerks, yeah

If I meet one more single mom
Whose true love is up and gone
Tells me on her trailer porch
About that man still carries a torch

Sure, he came home drunk each night
Beat the kids and her in a fight
But, man, she loves him so
It's so hard to let him go

I don't pretend to understand
Women's little quirks
Just one thing I know for sure
Chicks dig jerks

I'm sure there's some out there
Who can relate particularly
Young men without a date
See some jerk, some fine, fine babe go driving away

Is that a new bruise you got on you?
What does it say
That he loves you? Sure he beats you but afterwards he cries:
'Oh, baby, I could die'

Honey I don't think that's nothing to be proud of
I think it's called alcoholism
I don't think you should move away
Stay with him 'till you are in your grave

You're so sweet
Can't we just be friends?
I think of you as a brother...
Aw, man!

What do I have to offer you, baby?
Poetry and true love
That's not enough I know for sure
You need someone to throw you through the door!

I don't pretend to understand
Women's little quirks
Just one thing I know for sure
Chicks dig jerks, aw!

Chicks dig jerks, so true
Tell you man be mean to them
They'll never leave you then
'Cause chicks dig jerks

Just ignore 'em
Act like they're not there!
Man, you're gonna be pulling chicks out of your hair
They love that, act like you don't care

Aw, look at them, everywhere
They come running, woo
Tired of being a good guy
Such a lonely life

I'm gonna be a jerk, yeah, that's right
I'm gonna step on lots of toes, woo
Girls gonna go crazy for that guy
Baby, I'm gonna act like I don't even know you, woo!

Not gonna return one of your calls
I hear it, she's already at the door
She's intrigued by my indifference
Woo, I'm a jerk and it's working out, haha!

There's a gang I've just joined
There's a gang I've just joined
Three million strong you'd agree
Four million strong you'd agree
Enrollment was easy, so easy
Getting out proves to be the difficulty
From Land's End to John O'Groats
From Land's End to John O'Groats
They are making ends meet
Mending holes in their coat
Fasting and feasting on bread and margarine
Burning dreams build upon buried hopes
United Kingdom - you'd better ring them
You've a solution - you better bring them
United Kingdom - United Kingdom
You've a solution - you better bring them
Opportunity, I guess they all came and went
Finding it hard
Finding the rent you'll find it funny
With your finger running down
Situations vacant
In school he was an athlete
Now he's not so self-assured
After all of these O-levels is this my reward?
There's a silent majority, that's seen and
never heard from Charles I, Charles II
To Charles III
United Kingdom - you'd better ring them
You've a solution - you better bring them
United Kingdom - United Kingdom
This busted, rusted, upper-crusted
Bankrupted done and dusted
No-man-to-be-trusted United Kingdom
Proud to stand beneath the Union Jack?
Happy dealing up a no ace pack?
Polishing black boots
Priming the riot squad
There go I but for the grace of God
Covering up the agony with mindless entertainment
You'll be happy when they're ripping up the pavement
Bringing down the axe on steelworks and foundries
Someone said love knows no boundaries
Close your eyes and think of England
Lie back and think of her
United Kingdom - you better ring them
You've a solution - you better bring them

Take my hand
You know I'll be there,
If you can I'll cross
The sky for your love,
For I have promised for
To be with you tonight
And for the time that will come.

Take my hand
You know I'll be there,
If you can I'll cross
The sky for your love
And I understand
These winds and tides,
This change of times
Won't drag you away.
Hold on, hold on tightly,
Hold on and don't let go
Of my love.

The storms will pass
It won't be long now.
The storms will pass
But my love last forever.

And take my hand,
You know I'll be there,
If you can I'll cross the sky
For your love.
Give you what I hold dear,
Hold on, hold on tightly.
Hold on, hold on tightly.
Rise up, rise up with wings,
Like eagles you'll run, you'll run.
You'll run and not grow weary.

Take my hand, take my hand.
Hold on tightly.
Hold on tightly.
This love last forever,
This love last forever,
Take my hand,

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


I relate...
