-Mama Said-

Mama now I'm coming home
I'm not all you wished of me
But a mother's love for her son
Unspoken, Help me be
I took your love for granted
And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But a cold stone's all I see

-The Unnamed Feeling-

I'm frantic in your soothing amrs
I can not sleep in this down-filled world
I've found safety in this loneliness
But I can not stand it anymore

Cross my heard hope not to die
Swallow evil, ride the sky
Lost myself in a crowded room
You fool, you fool, it will be here soon

-Metallica-

Minus

And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But a cold stone's all I see

Let my heart go

One likes to believe
In the freedom of music
But glittering prizes
And endless compromises
Shatter the illusion
Of integrity

The Spirit of Radio - Neil Peart / Rush

And if that doesn't just about sum up the music industry today , then I don't know what does. (even though it was written in 1980)

I wrapped a newspaper ’round my head
So I looked like I was deep

I haven't read anything more true in a long time.

In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page - Don't dream it's over, Neil Finn of Crowded House

"If you give a man a Les Paul guitar, he doesn't become Eric Clapton. If you give a man an amp and a synthesizer, he doesn't become whoever. He doesn't become us." - Roger Waters, Pink Floyd

Some of my favorite lyrics:

"A groan of tedium escapes me, startling the fearful, is this a
Test? It has to be, otherwise I can't go on
Draining patience, drain vitality, this paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little
Old

But I'm still right here, givin' blood, keepin' faith and I'm still right here..." -song by TOOL

"And the snake is drowned and
As I look in his eyes,
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of those times

I could have cried then
I should have cried then" -song by TOOL

In the shuffling madness
of the locomotive breath,
runs the all-time loser,
headlong to his death.
He feels the piston scraping --
steam breaking on his brow --
old Charlie stole the handle and
the train it won't stop going --
no it couldn't slow down.

He sees his children jumping off
at the stations -- one by one.
His woman and his best friend --
in bed and having fun.
Oh he's crawling down the corridor
on his hands and knees --
old Charlie stole the handle and
the train it won't stop going --
no way to slow down.

He hears the silence howling --
catches angels as they fall.
And the all-time winner
has got him by the balls.
He picks up Gideons Bible --
open at page one --
old Charlie stole the handle and
the train it won't stop going --
no it couldn't slow down.

-Ian Anderson

I love Ian Anderson's imagery.

here's another Tull quote:

"Meanwhile back in the year one,
You didn't stand a chance, son,
If your pants were undone."

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

Sadly, this is probably one of my favorite lines in a song ever...

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love

Fake Plastic Trees,
Radiohead.

"f*** you I won't do what you tell me!" -Rage against the Machine

"I'm aware of the highs and the lows
I'd be waiting for you in the middle, but I just lack control" -Bradley Nowell, I Saw Red

"Ride the blue wind high and free
she'll lead you down thru misery
leave you low come time to go
alone and low as low can be" -Townes Van Zandt, Rex's Blues

Sorry, but time is at a premium ... I didn't read all the others, so if this is a duplicate I appologise!
