Upholding the Veneer of a Lesser Estate by Cipher

 

Open your eyes, still heavy and inflamed by late night television and tears;
Tears you attribute to lack of sleep, while ignoring your soul sick weariness.
Stretch out your hands, still crippled and burnt from keyboards and cigarettes;
Cigarettes filled with tobacco, that out of mere historical curiosity, you wonder how would have burned, if harvested by slaves.
How sweet cane, cut by a nubile wench, would have tasted.
How soft to the touch cotton, picked by a strong buck, would have felt.
How effective indigo dye of yesteryear, would be at disguising your inadequacies.
How fulfilling it would be to reclaim land still damp with the blood of first nations.
Imagine all this while we fuel wars with beautiful diamonds and kill infants with horrible ignorance.
A 500 year, harvest of catholic church green-housed, white-supremacist- manicured new growth patriarchs.
Rotten five century fruit betrays its genetically modified, socially engineered design.
Hurry, hurry, faster. We haven't much time. We're still vomiting salt so our bodies can come home.
We're still walking on water, aided by the buoyant remains of our brethren.
We appear like messiahs, but from below we stand hollow on the still rotting corpse of inherited shame. Come, woman.
Show no deference to vacant effigies.
Place this mirror-womb to the face of humanity and betray god-head proffered mythologies.
Come, man.
Burn your conscience.
Burn it slowly.
Betray us never again.
Hurry.
Hurry.
Time is running out.
Come, Child.
Kill if you have to.
We will burden you no more.
Come, child. Bring this world to its implosive end.
The time has come. This is the harbinger of a new age. We are the children of God's fire.

Evanescence - Sweet sacrifice

It's true, we're all a little insane.
But it's so clear,
Now that I'm unchained.

Fear is only in our minds,
Taking over all the time.
Fear is only in our minds
but it's taking over all the time.

You poor sweet innocent thing.
Dry your eyes and testify.
You know you live to break me.
Don't deny sweet sacrifice.

One day
I'm gonna forget your name,
And one sweet day,
you're gonna drown in my lost pain.

Fear is only in our minds,
Taking over all the time.
Fear is only in our minds
but it's taking over all the time.

You poor sweet innocent thing.
Dry your eyes and testify.
And oh you love to hate me, don't you, honey?
I'm your sacrifice.

(I dream in darkness
I sleep to die,
Erase the silence,
Erase my life.)

Do you wonder why you hate? (Our burning ashes,
Blacken the day)
Are you still too weak to survive your mistakes? (A world of nothingness,
Blow me away.)

You poor sweet innocent thing.
Dry your eyes and testify.
You know you live to break me.
Don't deny.
Sweet sacrifice.

Lyrically, few artists compare to Bob Dylan; I'd go as far to say that he's peerless in the field. A subtle example can be found in his Oscar-winning track 'Things Have Changed', in which he states, "The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity." He sings this with exactly sixty seconds left in the song - plus the rest of the song is full of sublime imagery, metaphors, similes and essentially the unparalleled lyrical intelligence that seeps from Dylan.

It's not my favorite song but it's my favorite lyrics, somehow it reaches into the personal side of me, especially the last lyrics which are in bold:

 

Artist: Blue October

Song: Overweight

 

Ever carried the weight of another?
For how long?
I walk as far as they need to recover
For how long? (ha!)

I want to carry a piece of who I was before
So when I hit the wall, I really hit the wall
I want to tear away the death again
A whiter shade of f****** meth again
I want to stick to clues, I want to come unglued
I want to shape the world to fit the way you move
Oh, should I listen for a dress size?

I owned up, I've grown up, do you remember me?
I showed up and so what if I'm the used to be
I'm here to tell you that I'm sorry I was sorry
But I'm happy that you're happy
This is no longer about me

Trade rules, switch sides for your beautiful eyes
Let him be you through your beautiful cries
Let him hold you up so you can touch affordable skies
Live your life just like a dream
Without the pain of goodbyes
Goodbye!

Ever carried the weight of another?
For how long?
I walk as far as they need to recover
For how long?

I been a drunk disrespectful little street punk
Unlock the back of my trunk
You see, you take this bat
And bash my head into the street again
No-ones around so I keep beating it

Pull my hair back, look me in the eye
There's a self-destructive meaning in the bleeding of a guy
It's the guilt of what reality has given me
Making sense of all mistakes and my stupidity
And when you're sick you seem to think
You've failed eternally

And that the people you let in are only crumbling
When you're sick of faking life in this recovery
When my decision paved the road
That lies in front of me

So to my friends that even call but I don't call back
I want you deep inside my heart upon a hill
It seems to hide sometimes and run away and wonder
I'm really sick of saying sorry but I will

Ever carried the weight of another?
For how long?
I walk as far as they need to recover
For how long?

But are we scared to take the ride?
Or dare to look inside?
I'm floating far away (far away)
I'm floating far away (leaving home)
I'm floating far away (so far away)
I'm floating far away

I want to learn to walk with others as an equal
I want to treat the ones who love me with respect
I want to tell the world I'll give them all a piggyback
And try to take away my negative effect
I want to kiss a girl and know I'll never lie again
I want to call my dad and tell him that I care
I want to let my brother know
He saved my life a thousand times
Throughout the years he's been my friend
Who's always there


Ever carried the weight of another?
For how long?

Love Psalm by Akira Yamaoka/ Mary Elizabeth McGlynn

 

This isn't the life that I dreamed it could be
I'm starin' into the eyes of the shell left of me

And now, every decision I make
the good, the pleasure, and the pain
could simply all be erased
if I choose it to be

This nightmare unfolds like a rose awakes to the spring
Always so close to the sanity I'm trying to cling to

I'm tearin' out the pages 'cause it hurts
to be forced to feel the hearts break
How much of this torture can I take?
Is it not worth the risk to create
just one
more try?
I know that I can fix it

If you could rewrite our life any way that you please
would you tear out the pages of our memories?
Would you take back the pain and all the hurt we create?
Or could you be satisfied with the love that you've made
with me?

If you could rewrite our life any way that you please
would you tear out the pages of our memories?
Would you take back the pain and all the hurt we create?
or could you be satisfied with the promise you made?

So we rewrite our lives but it's not what we think
In the chaos we dance as we stand on the brink
Always one change away from makin' ourselves complete
The world will perish in flames
and I'll watch as you fade from me

We write our love psalm
Rewrite our love psalm
We write our love psalm
Rewrite our love psalm

Andra and The Backbone - Sempurna (Prefect.)

 

 

- Kau begitu sempurna
You’re so prefect.

dimataku kau begitu indah
In my eyes you’re so beautiful

kau membuat diriku akan selalu memujamu
you’re making me to admire you always



disetiap langkahku
In every step I take

kukan slalu memikirkan dirimu
I would always think of you

tak bisa ku bayangkan hidupku tanpa cintamu
I could not imagine my life without your love


– Reff :

janganlah kau tinggal diriku
Please don’t leave me

takkan mampu menghadapi semua
won’t be able to face anything

hanya bersamamu kuakan bisa
Only with you, I can

kau adalah darahku
You’re my blood

kau adalah jantungku
You’re my heart

kau adalah hidupku
You’re my life

lengkapi diriku
Completing me

oh sayangku kau begitu,
Oh love you’re so

Sempurna
Perfect.



kau genggam tanganku
You hold my hand

saat diriku lemah dan terjatuh
In times where I’m weak and fell

kau bisikkan kata dan hapus semua sesalku
You whispered to me and all my regrets are erased


Back To Reff 2x

In the middle of a bad dream I ask whoever is filming not to stop
I don't know what a nightmare is called when I am napping during the day
Or if I am awake
But I'm guessing it's really all the same
I enter this hole of self-pity
Which is really housing another hole
Of self loathing
Which reveals itself as a sea
Of utter contempt and I
Am now floating
The closest I came to knowing God was being caught in a rowing shell on the Fox River in the middle of a wicked storm
I looked into God's eyes, and they were gray--
Like my favorite woolen sweater, thrice worn and thrifted
I guess at heart, I'm a materialist
People often ask me what it's like to fly the coop
Budding ornithologists are weary of tired analogies
I want to be a writer, if given the chance I would write a novel for every pretty girl that let me kiss her
And another for the all-seeing eye of her big sister
Rain drops smooched my hair soft
Your kisses were distinct like welts from an airsoft
I never wore a tie that didn't come from the thrift store
Before I was a vegetarian I should've fished more
I wonder if the pizza in heaven tastes better than here
My spidey-sense tingles whenever Eddie Vedder is near
I've never done anything impressive because being remembered as a headline would be delineating
I've never really wanted to be remembered
When Robert died I was in a bookstore that wasn't born yet
And all around me spun the narratives of other fallen heroes
Dust! Dust! Dust!
Dust on the tomes of the stories of yesterday;
Dust on the tombs of the heroes of today
Dust
Dust
Dust
I miss you
 
Do you like your raps sung by a prettier gent
Who fornicates copiously with a prosthetic wench?
I'll fade into oblivion when my prophecy's spent
In a megaplex guessing where my office copies were lent
Now I, never was ever the best break dancer
And you'll never hear my name on your CB police scanner
But I can hoist my Braveheart-esque banner to the moon
And create much havoc in a small-town, college kid's room
Hip hop's grand prize is a following of nasty MILFs
Who understitched their lonely son's Eagle Scout quilts
Which explains why the lad is so passive-aggressive
And hastily labeled my press kit massively unimpressive
*one breath*
 
I was farmed for my similarity to a Duracell battery
And quickly abandoned at a calculator factory
I'm no Wizard of Waverly
But I wear second hand goods like they were made for me
I went to school to become a philosopher
But dropped out to be a sober Kid Cudi imposter
With a spoon that's porous, I lounge in Siberia
Dining on borscht with Boris
My mind has the drive of an old FORD Taurus
Unfortunately my mind has no roads: it's just a forest
Rap's Kurt Vonnegut, Blurb Fontset
 
For you I would cross the infinite sea of midpoints
And eat french fries at your favorite cheeseburger joint
When we're old, please call me if you crack your diskjoint
I might be busy keeping these rhymes on point
Catch me rapping in your favorite restaurant's senior citizen line
Dropping wizened rhymes
About the fall of Byzantine
I said catch me rapping in your favorite restaurant's senior citizen line
Dropping wizened rhymes
About the fall of Byzantine
 
I'm an old man eating Zatarain's with cataracts
Worrying about matching my afghans with my stocking caps
A trip to the restroom can last me a couple hours
I remember when folks thought MCs had divine powers
Pretending we were Word Wizards and Conjurers;
TV told us we were murderers on the lam from their officers
In many ways I'm this culture's premiere historian
I told a young man at the bus stop and he said I was borin' him
Now I'm in the arts and crafts room at this old nursing home
Cutting out hearts from the same cardboard I danced upon
I couldn't possibly put to words how depressed I am
Every week I look forward to hearing the Funkmaster's Jam
I made some notes for what else I could blab about
The other night I told my bed nurse I was swagged out
She put me in my place fast, responding
Why can't you wipe your own ass?
Damn

 

I don't know what my favorite song lyrics actually are but the lyrics to "One Lonely Owl" are one of my choices. Everything Milo releases is great lyrically.

                                         Sleeping With Sirens - If I'm James Dean, Then You're Audrey Hepburn

 

 

Stay for tonight

If you want to

I can show you

What my dreams are made of,

as I'm dreaming of your face

I've been away for a long time

Such a long time

And I miss you there

I can't imagine being anywhere else

I can't imagine being anywhere else but here

[Verse 1:]

How the hell did you ever pick me?

Honestly, I could sing you a song

But I don't think words can express your beauty

It's singing to me

How the hell did we end up like this?

You bring out the beast in me

I fell in love from the moment we kissed

Since then we've been history

[Chorus:]

They say that love is forever

Your forever is all that I need

Please stay as long as you need

Can't promise that things won't be broken

But I swear that I will never leave

Please stay forever with me

[Verse 2:]

It goes to show, I hope that you know that you are

What my dreams are made of

Can't fall asleep, can't fall asleep

I lay in my bed awake, in my bed awake at night

As I dream of you

I'll fall in love, you'll fall in love

It could mean everything, everything to me

I can't imagine being anywhere else

[Chorus:]

They say that love is forever

Your forever is all that I need

Please stay as long as you need

Can't promise that things won't be broken

But I swear that I will never leave

Please stay forever with me

[bridge (2x):]

The way that we are

Is the reason I stay

As long as you're here with me

I know we'll be OK

 

[Chorus:]

They say that love is forever

Your forever is all that I need

Please stay as long as you need

Can't promise that things won't be broken

But I swear that I will never leave

Please stay forever with me

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)

They say that love is forever

Your forever is all that I need

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)

Please stay as long as you need

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)

Can't promise that things won't be broken

But I swear that I will never leave

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)

Please stay forever with me

Shadow by BEAST

 

 

Give me the light light light
You are ma ma ma sunrise
Without you, I’m nothing
You’re my last, you’re my last, until always, you’re my last
Even if you’re a path of fire, I’ll jump into you

Hurry and erase the goodbyes that have smeared black onto the sky
I want to stay by your side so I can’t get any closer, so I can’t even look at you

 

Run by Younha

 

The lyrics for this song cannot be separated, in my opinion.

The Smiths - Nowhere Fast

 

I'd like to drop my trousers to the world
I am a man of means (of slender means)
Each household appliance
Is like a new science in my town
And if the day came when I felt a
Natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump
In the ocean
And when a train goes by
It's such a sad sound
No...
It's such a sad thing

I'd like to drop my trousers to the Queen
Every sensible child will know what this means
The poor and the needy
Are selfish and greedy on her terms
And if the day came when I felt a
Natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump
In the ocean
And when a train goes by
It's such a sad sound
No...
It's such a sad thing

And when I'm lying in my bed
I think about life
And I think about death
And neither one particularly appeals to me
And if the day came when I felt a
Natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably lie
In the middle of the street and die
I'd lie down and die...
Oh, oh

The Faction - Skate & Destroy

 

Forget the light, skate and destroy
Pass the jogger, skate and destroy
Snap it back, skate and destroy
Kick that bike, skate and destroy
It's not a cause or political belief, it's something in my thinking
If you agree it's cool by me, at least I'm not a robot
I'm not afraid of things I read, I won't divide my friends up
Dictatorship of people's minds is not what I will strive for
The cops are coming after me, their sons are BMXers
They always try to stop me but urethane is faster than boots
You may be in a parking lot throwing up your contents
So what who cares I know I don't
Be a hood, don't be good.

"Exile"

Cold as the northern winds

In December mornings,

Cold is the cry that rings

From this far distant shore.

Winter has come too late

Too close beside me.

How can I chase away

All these fears deep inside?

[Chorus:]

I'll wait the signs to come.

I'll find a way

I will wait the time to come.

I'll find a way home.

My light shall be the moon

And my path - the ocean.

My guide the morning star

As I sail home to you.

[Chorus]

Who then can warm my soul?

Who can quell my passion?

Out of these dreams - a boat

I will sail home to you.

"The Last Goodbye"

I saw the light fade from the sky

On the wind I heard a sigh

As the snowflakes cover

My fallen brothers

I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling

So ends this day

The road is now calling

And I must away

Over hill and under tree

Through lands where never light has shone

By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud, beneath the stars

Over snow and winter's morn

I turn at last to paths that lead home

And though where the road then takes me,

I cannot tell

We came all this way

But now comes the day

To bid you farewell

Many places I have been

Many sorrows I have seen

But I don't regret

Nor will I forget

All who took that road with me

Night is now falling

So ends this day

The road is now calling

And I must away

Over hill, and under tree

Through lands where never light has shone

By silver streams that run down to the sea

To these memories I will hold

With your blessing I will go

To turn at last to paths that lead home

And though where the road then takes me,

I cannot tell

We came all this way

But now comes the day

To bid you farewell

I bid you all a very fond farewell
