The mind falls into black abyss

Nothing left the same

Mouths emerge from every shape

Howls like dust from the grave

 

Why is everyone posting whole songs?

Members of Open Carnage never see off-site ads.

Why would someone only post the top left corner of a painting?

Sometimes the entire piece needs to be seen rather than just a portion of it.

Well I don't personally feel like that analogy fits because if that's the case, we shouldn't be reading the lyrics at all, we should be listening to the whole songs; but I'm not looking to argue, I just thought it was odd.

 

You take my hand and sympathize

You felt the flesh, you realized

You took my will, now I'm deprived

Save myself, just save myself

 

I cannot be taken unto

All that I am cannot be taken

 

She has ways mischievous

Takes your soul in pact

Usually I highlight the 'fave' lines I am wanting to post but in general for it to make sense or for one to understand the section posted the previous and following lines or verse contribute.

That's why I said sometimes. Songs are a collective of artistic pieces strung together into one collaborative piece. One part of that collaborative piece are the lyrics. Lyrics can express many things and, depending on the way they're written, they mean nothing (or simply less) without the rest of the piece. There are also times where, yes, the same goes for needing the rest of the song as well. This thread focuses on lyrics, though.

In the southern part of Texas

Near the town of San Antone

Like a statue on his Pinto

Rides a cowboy all alone

 

And he sees the cattle grazing

Where a century before

Santa Anna's guns were blazing

And the cannons used to roar

 

And his eyes turn sorta misty

And his heart begins to glow

And he takes his hat off slowly...

 

To the men of Alamo

In The End - Whitey
 
 
If I cried, I would cry for the living. Look at the trouble life brings. Loss and decay are the natural way, time has its eye on you. Age is a sign you are living, pain is the proof you still feel. Loss and decay, is just lifes little way, of reminding you this is for real.

And each little chance, that has slipped from your hands- in the end... it was all up to you. And each little chance, that has slipped from your hands- in the end... it was all up to you.

Take a long hard look in the mirror. Read the lines that life wrote on your face. If the lines don't read well, then consider- if you're alive, then you can change.

You may rise up as light as a feather. Or you may sink like a stone.
But we're stuck on this same rock together. You are not the only one.


You are not the only one.

You are not the only one.

Say Something Loving - The XX

 

Before it slips away

Say something loving
I just don't remember the thrill of affection
I just don't remember
Say something loving
I need a reminder, the feeling's escaped me

 

I went looking for it
Could have been anyone's kiss
Throwing my arms at no one
When I gave up, I found love

 

The thought flows through my mind
And it's growing all the time
I do myself a disservice
To feel this weak, to be this nervous

 

You say something loving
It's so overwhelming, the thrill of affection
Feels so unfamiliar
You say something loving
Without hesitation it hits me, hits me
It feels so unfamiliar

 

Before it slips away

 

Your touch stays on my skin
I feel it start sinking in
Here come my insecurities
I almost expect you to leave

 

Were you really looking for me?
Try your best to reassure me
I wasn't patient to meet you
Am I too needy, am I too eager?

 

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong

 

Did you hear me say it?

Say it...
Did you hear me say?

 

I say something loving
I can't hold it inside, the thrill of affection
Is only getting stronger
I say something loving
All my hesitations are fading, fading
I feel it taking over

 

Before it slips away
Don't let it slip away
Before it slips away
Don't let it slip away

Half Deaf Clatch: Big Plans in a Small Town

 

There ain't no hellhounds here

Just a few hounds

Nothin ever happens, everyone's sleepy

This part'a town

 

Come along and feel yourself stagnate

In so many ways

Sittin on a corner, sippin on a cider

Waitin on Judgment Day

 

 

Half Deaf Clatch: Hard Times Make Me Harder

 

You know it's not the end, woman

Hear what I say

Trouble comin down again, lower

At the end of the day

Hard times make me harder
