Drüben hinterm Dorfe 

Steht ein Leiermann, 

Und mit starren Fingern 

Dreht er, was er kann. 

 

Barfuß auf dem Eise 

Schwankt er hin und her; 

Und sein kleiner Teller 

Bleibt ihm immer leer. 

 

Keiner mag ihn hören, 

Keiner sieht ihn an; 

Und die Hunde brummen 

Um den alten Mann. 

 

Und er läßt es gehen 

Alles, wie es will, 

Dreht, und seine Leier 

Steht ihm nimmer still. 

 

Wunderlicher Alter, 

Soll ich mit dir gehn? 

Willst zu meinen Liedern 

Deine Leier drehn?


a furore infra, libera nos

When I was in the 3rd grade I thought that I was gay 'cause I could draw, 

My uncle was and I kept my room straight

I told my mom, tears rushing down my face, she's like, 

"Ben you've loved girls since before pre-K"

Trippin', yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't she?

A bunch of stereotypes all in my head

I remember doing the math like "Yeah, I'm good a little league"

A pre-conceived idea of what it all meant

For those who like the same sex had the characteristics

The right-wing conservatives think its a decision

And you can be cured with some treatment and religion

Man-made, rewiring of a pre-disposition. Playing God

Ahh nah, here we go

America the brave

Still fears what we don't know And God loves all his children it's somehow forgotten

But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five hundred years ago

I don't know

If I was gay I would think hip-hop hates me

Have you read the Youtube comments lately?

"Man, that's gay" gets dropped on a daily

We've become so numb to what we're sayin'

Our culture founded from oppression

Yeah, we don't have acceptance for 'em

Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board

A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it

'Gay' is synonymous with 'the lesser'

It's the same hate that's caused wars from religion

Gender to skin color the complexion of your pigment

The same fight that led people to walk-outs and sit-ins, 

It's human rights for everybody

There is no difference

Live on and be yourself

When I was in church, they taught me something else

If you preach hate at the service, those words aren't anointed

And that Holy Water that you soak in is then poisoned

When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless

Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen

I might not be the same, but that's not important

We press play don't press pause

Progress, march on

With a veil over our eyes

We turn our back on the cause

'Till the day That my uncles can be united by law

Their kids are walkin' around the hallway

Plagued by pain in their heart

A world so hateful, some would rather die than be who they are

And a certificate on paper

Isn't gonna solve it all, but it's a damn good place to start

No law's gonna change us

We have to change us. Whatever God you believe in

We come from the same one

Strip away the fear

Underneath it's all the same love

About time that we raised up

"Babylon Feeling"
(feat. Carlos Santana)

My heart is broke, my will is gone
Fell in love with a woman named Babylon
She hook me to the gills all of her forbidden thrills
I call her baby for short then I ramble on
She'll forget about me

My soul is high, my mind is free
Met a shorty with some back call her Destiny
She showed me all my fates, my stream of conscious navigates
I orbit around the sun at high velocity
Don't forget about me, don't forget about
Sweet things won't you save my soul
Pretty lady, won't you take me home [X2]...tonight

My arms are heavy, my body's tense
Got the hot's for this honey named Confidence
She points out all of my flaws, breaking all of her favorite laws
Never speaks a word in my defense, just forget about me

My spirit's weak, my lust will thrive
Got a thing for this bitch said her name's a lie
She controls me with her fear, my prayers fall on her cold deaf ear
She says have a good time and take your dive
Just forget about me, just forget about
Sweet things, won't you save my soul (yeah)
Pretty lady, won't you take me home
Sweet thing won't you save my soul (yeah)
Pretty lady won't you take me home...tonight
I've got a Babylon feelin', I've got a Babylon feelin'
I've got a Babylon feelin', I'm feelin' Babylon

My heart is broke, my will is gone
Fell in love with a woman named Babylon
She hook me to the gills, all of her forbidden thrills
I call her baby for short then I ramble on, and I ramble on
I've got a Babylon feelin', I've got a Babylon feelin'
I've got a Babylon feelin', feelin', feelin', yeah [X4]

Who you tryin' to get crazy with ese? Don't you know I'm loco?

To da one on da flamboyant tempa
I just toss that ham on the fryin pan
Like spam
It's done when I come in slam
Damn, I feel like the son of sam
Don't make me wrek shit
Hectic next to the chair
Got me goin' like general electric
Errr
The lights are blinkin' I'm thinkin'
It's all over when go out drinkin'
OH makin' my mind slow,
That's why I don't fuck with the big four-oh
Bro, I got ta' maintain
Cuz a nigga like me is goin' insane

Chorus:
Insane in da membrane
Insane in da brain!
Insane in the membrane
Insane in the brain!
Insane in the membrane
Fred's insane, got no brain!
Insane in the membrane
Insane in the brain!

Do my shit undercover
Now it's time for for the blubba
Blaba to watch dat belly get fatter
Fat boy on a diet don't try it
I'll jack your ass like a looter in a riot
My shits fat like a sumo slammin' dat ass
Leavin' your face in the grass
You know I don't take a dulo lightly
Punk just jealous cuz he can't outwrite me
So kick that style, wicked wild
Happy face nigga never seen me smile
Rip dat mainframe
I'll explain
A nigga like me is goin' insane

Chorus

Like Louie Armstrong
Played the trumpet
I'll hit dat bong and break ya off something soon
I got ta get my props
Cops
Come and try to snatch my crops
These pigs wanna blow my house down
Head underground to the next town
They get mad when they come to raid my pad
And I'm out in the nine-deuce Cad
Yes I'm the pirate pilot
Of this ship if I get
Wit' the ultraviolet dream
Hide from the red light beam
Now do you believe in the unseen
Look, but don't make your eyes strain
A nigga like me is goin' insane

Tomorrow Tomorrow

Everybody knows which way you go, straight to over

No one wants to see you inside of me, straight to over

I heard the hammer at the lock

Say you're deaf and dumb and done

Give yourself another talk

This time make it sound like someone

The noise is coming out, and if it's not out now

Then tomorrow, tomorrow

They took your life apart and called you failure's art

They were wrong though, they won't know

'Til tomorrow

I got static in my head

The reflected sound of everything

Tried to go to where it led

But it didn't lead to anything

The noise is coming out, but if it's not out now

I know it's just about to drown tomorrow out

"Stay Together For The Kids"

it's hard to wake up, when the shades have been pulled shut
This house is haunted, it's so pathetic, it makes no sense at all
I'm ripe with things to say, the words rot and fall away
What stupid poem could fix this home, I'd read it every day


So here's your holiday,
hope you enjoy it this time, you gave it all away
it was mine, so when you're dead and gone
will you remember this night, twenty years now lost,
it's not right.

Their anger hurts my ears, been running strong for seven years
Rather then fix the problems, they never solve them, it makes no sense at all
I see them everyday, we get along so why can't they?
If this is what he wants, and it's what she wants, then why is there so much pain?

So here's your holiday,
hope you enjoy it this time, you gave it all away.
it was mine, so when you're dead and gone
will you remember this night, twenty years now lost,
it's not right.


So here's your holiday,
hope you enjoy it this time, you gave it all away.
It was mine, so when your dead and gone,
will you remember this night, twenty years now lost?
it's not right
it's not right
it's not right
it's not right

Such a great song it's hard to pick any favorites. I changed my mind at least twice. I should have just highlighted the whole thing. That beat too tho
 

We're all born into this river without knowing how to swim
And eventually we learn how to keep the water under our chins
Some times this river is so cold to be in
Freezing my soul, solidifying my skin
Regardless of how far I see, I never see my travels end
We're carried by the current, being driven by the wind
The scenery we pass, we'll never see again
So we store it up as memories and don't let go of them
Were under a spell thinking the river should go straight
We set goals and desires to control our own fate
But all the pain we experience is a result of our expectations
Because it's the rivers nature to twist and turn
The shit can burn
And I know it
I have the same conflict
But I try to sit and flow with this rivers natural process
And sometimes when I watch myself float downstream
I see the beauty of it all, and it feels like a dream
And at that time I appreciate the rivers course
Some call it God, reality, momentum, force
I stare up at the naked moon, and she stares down at me
Outside false boundaries I’m all I look outward to see

The universe is not something separate from yourself
I know you feel alone, but that's why I'm here to help
I know you feel alone, but just look up at the stars
And everything that is out there is what you really are


We gotta learn to see the beauty in each moment in life
Everyone has different pasts and we're seeking the light
The world is divided between peasants and kings
But the truth is everyone is looking for the same thing


Now I want you to know
The role you play is part of the whole
Without you it couldn't be, and I mean that with compassion
So if you ever need anything, I mean anything at all
I'm here for you; all you gotta do is ask man


I'm here for you, in the same way that you're here for me
Each person in an intricate piece of infinity
I feel like if you could see what I see
Then we as humanity could be free
I'm here for you, not for any self centered reasons
Because existence is interdependent and all's related
Connected in its different manifestations of one single mind
You ain't isolated from the world even though it feels like that sometimes


I see the hurt when I look into your eyes
How you struggle to hold it and keep it bundled inside
It drives a dull blade deep in my heart; it makes me want to cry
So I offer you a hand to help you wash away the rainy skies
I'm running out of words, but I haven't yet made my message clear
So if none of this makes sense, I just want you to know I'm here

As a musician, as a friend, as a teacher, as a student
To grow and realize that everything's in constant movement
Each problem that we face is just a part of this movement
It seems helpless, but if we stick together we'll get through it
And return to the essence from which we've been uprooted
And wake humanity from these illusions
The second you can look into the sky and see your own reflection
You know you're headed in the right direction
The river riding always moves, but with it I live
And everything is perfect, just the way it is

We gotta learn to see the beauty in each moment in life
Everyone has different pasts and we're seeking the light
The world is divided between peasants and kings
But the truth is everyone is looking for the same thing

Now I want you to know
The role you play is part of the whole
Without you it couldn't be, and I mean that with compassion
So if you need anything, I mean anything at all
I'm here for you; all you gotta do is ask man
I'm here for you; all you gotta do is ask man
I'm here for you; all you gotta do is ask man

I think it's about time I put something up in here like I do once in a blue moon, so here you go:

 

The Fight - Avenged Sevenfold

 

The problem with society's been how do we teach
And if they'll believe.
We'll fight this battle for years to come
'Til we all accept that we can stand on our own.
Grandfather used his hands, he worked them to the bone.
Provide his family with a happy home, alone.

Don't take your aggression out on me.
My own man is all I'm meant to be.

This common place is so lazy, old, and tired
All your ideas are so fucking uninspired.
Takes more than one idea
More than one person to fight the fight
How many times have you taught and not conspired?

You don't wanna be, they never say
But don't call us the liars

We've walked these alleys a thousand times
And scattered around a thousand lies.
They are trying to hold you down
Your life may be hard
But keep your feet on the ground.
Why don't I have the finer things that others have?
The chance is there if you want it all that bad.
So bad.

Don't take your aggression out on me.
My own man is all I'm meant to be.

This common place is so lazy, old, and tired
All your ideas are so fucking uninspired.
Takes more than one idea
More than one person to fight the fight
How many times have you taught and not conspired?

Don't try and get me confused.
Cause I do understand.
And sometimes people need help.
That they may need a hand
When this problems going on.
A thing you have to get straight
Is that you don't own my hand.
And I don't owe you a thing.
So don't think about how sorry you feel
And now you're treated so bad.

This common place is so lazy, old, and tired
All your ideas are so fucking uninspired.
Takes more than one idea
More than one person to fight the fight
How many times have you taught and not conspired?

And as we race we look back and we've come so far.
While some may conquer, the others had it so hard.
But in this day we just complain while there's no one for us to fight.
I guess we're bored and it's how we keep us occupied

But it broke so now I'm using a puny one..." - ShikuTeshi 2017                                                                          -Tucker933 2017
