oh serena

oh serena. i know what theyre saying about you.
they all say its a resistance.
they all say that ya didnt listen.
well they all have scars on their eyes, its true.

night and day is like a haunted replay.
i know it girl ill pray for you
just remember its not stronger than you..

oh serena. i know what theyre saying about you.

you tasted death, but, ill shed the night, night irreverant all
the time, carneleby is a bit of you.

time to feel it, time to fix it. time to lure it, oh
no time to miss it, time to lure this stone cold
weather, time alone and time away, i know what they say..

oh serena. i know what theyre saying about you.
i know the pains inside you
i know what theyre saying about you
..its not true..

idoless

i dont know but i know it
you better find out what your place is
urban plight is in the city streets
its infectious and its complacent

idoless

over expression and rationed, assimilated temptation
integrity- integrate...integregation
molestedm accosted, detested
ill wreck this coming down like the apocalypse

idoless..syndication

i dont know but i know it
you better find out what your name is
arrested, infested, its your collective
coming off like you wrote the ten commandments

idoless

i dont know but i know it
you better find out what your place is
urban plight is in the city streets
its infectious and you are complacent

idoless
the idol is within you
watch it come on through
the idol is within you
watch it come on through

very fucked up women
on an la mission
this is the glory gonna get their hooks in gonna drag you way down

oh god almighty what the fuck happened to you?
cause i am not red, white, and blue

every day and all fucking night
i watch you pale, i watch you walk on through

then she went glassy a sawn-off tragedy
a deliverence in the city, a new beginning
power and glory in the name of your enemies
you sell your restless casualty for power and glory

cause i am not red white and blue
walk on through this heat

ask the angels

orig. Patti Smith

move! ask the angels who theyre calling
go ask the angels if theyre calling to thee
ask the angels while theyre falling
who that person could possibly be

and i know you got the feeling
you know i feel it crawl across the floor
and i know it got you reelin
and honey honey the call is for war
and its wild wild wild

everybody got the feelin
you know the feeling and its stronger each day
everybody wants to be reelin
and baby baby ill show you the way

and i know its hard sometimes
you got a piece and hit across the sky
and i know its hard sometimes
and world war is the battle cry
and its wild wild wild wild

across the country through the fields
you know i see it written cross the sky
people rising from the highway
and war war is the battle cry
and its wild wild wild wild.

armageddon its gotten
no savior jailer can take it from me
world ending its just beginning
and rock and roll is what im born to be
and its wild wild wild wild
wild wild wild wild
wild wild wild wild
wild wild wild wild

ask the angels if theyre startin to move
comin in droves in from la
ask the angels if theyre starting to groove
lightning as armor and its today
its wild wild wild wild
wild wild wild wild
wild wild wild wild

oldscratch

heres the chance to express your liberty
noone but you can know what stepping down can mean
despotic leader kills the bravest traitor on the street

but keep the faith they say theyll free us from our pain
they sell you a religious escapade
you join the church and they take your life away

shameless money eat your money eat your vultures quick
but keep the faith, they say theyll free us from our pain
but your liberty is exchanged i said your liberty is exchanged

girlfixer

no more coquettish look on your face
not so much pretty ugly but youre in your place
hide behind your man dont dare to think for you
keep your claws off me as i walk on through, dont you glare
im not the kind of girl who will just pull on your hair
i wont be through til youre blue

damn man come on and sell your seconds
no one can make ya make ya break ya
anyway i will break ya, theyll crown me

never used to harm noone no matter what the reason
now you drug your grave and its bitch hunting season
smiling madly honey when i see you
around biding my time till i can get you on the ground
its not my plan to steal your man
its a pitiful sight thats hard to stand
i guess i dont get a clue
so just step your ass aside and let me walk on fucking through

damn man come on and sell your second
no one can make you do anything
anyway anyway ill make you theyll crown me

red carpet and rebellion

red carpet and rebellion
makes ya wonder at these established ones
they aint out to get ya
cause your a mile .. away

i heard a siren, a city warning , they said a new
dawn arrives in the morning .. so i wait out tonight
for the , the new sunrise
they laid me to rest with an an aberration
i woke up the living dead colossally mistaken
i ran through the streets and i broke down

there aint no money there aint no time
yeah im outta my mind dont wanna waste this away
i feel ashamed when i am and shamed when im not
the configuration of the american dream

the palace dialed in the streets were burning
the red horizon came crashing through the morning
there was no contentment only blood shed
red blood and social discontent bruised by puritan
oh puritan exempt its like a peasant uprising

st petersburg, 1905
father garpan led the protest .. up inside .. up inside
we are gone we are gone we are gone

ill run a mile till i find a hung jury
where there is red carpet there is rebellion
red carpet and rebellion
makes ya wonder why they smell so bad
they aint out to get ya cause your a mile away

colussus usa

whatcha live for when you noone
what ya do and where ya come from
you call i feel a lack of grace
a certain disconnection
dissapated understanding
seems like second slitting
seems like second slitting
in a third world company

i know what you wanted
i know that you want it, want it

well hell yeah
dont walk away
dont walk away
dont walk away

shit

i met a man on the street
he said this is poverty
down-town on broadway st.
i dont really know his name
he said live in the world not for gain

i know what you want, hey
i know that you want it, want it
i know what you wanted
i know that you want it..

the blackest years

oh berlin your heart has been drawn and quartered again
the east and the west were divided by a wall
that staunched their freedom..well the wall came
down in 1989 but its ghost still refuses to leave
these hauntings are so reputative
theres a bit of you in me.. lets go
oh berlin your life is on fire it burns deep within
this heart of mine
you got astronamical, economical, suffering for a century
and when the ocean swells that day ill get on my ship
and ill sail away all this shit im on this ship

and when youre all alone dont forget me
cause when im all alone i wont forget you
when youre all alone dont forget me cause im
on the wrong side of the tracks

but i did not know until you turned youre back
im living the blackest years of my life
but i did not know until you said goodbye..goodbye
