Default lyrics to live by

No one's noticed, but the band's all packed and gone.
Was it ever here at all?
But they keep on dancing.

I suggest we
Learn to love
Ourselves before it's
Made illegal
When will we learn?
When will we change?
Just in time to
See it all fall down

- Warning, by Incubus

Before you try to tell me how to live my life
Don't try to fill me up with false hopes and lies
Show me the truth and i'll show you a lie
Don't try to tell me I'm wrong when I know I'm right
Cause I don't need it, I don't need it, all I need is....

I'm mad as hell and I ain't gonna take it
And if you think I am I think you're fuckin' mistaken
You can lock me in, but you can't lock me out
You can cut off my tongue, but I'll still scream and shout.....

My destination is my own decision
Living fast, my only religion
I trust no one cause I'm no fuckin' fool
And i can learn on my own I don't need no school

Choosin' my own way of life - Suicidal Tendencies

So it's Halloween
And you feel like dancin'
And you feel like shinin'
And you feel like letting loose

Whatcha gonna be
Babe, you better know
And you better plan
Better plan all day

Better plan all week
Better plan all month
Better plan all year

You're dressed up like a clown
Putting on your act
It's the only time all year
You'll ever admit that

I can see your eyes
I can see your brain
Baby, nothing's changed

You're still hiding in a mask
You take your fun seriously
No, don't blow this year's chance
Tomorrow your mold goes back on

After Halloween

You go to work today
You'll go to work tomorrow
Shitfaced tonight
You'll brag about it for months

Remember what I did
Remember what I was
Back on Halloween

But what's in between
Where are your ideas
You sit around and dream
For next Halloween

Why not everyday
Are you so afraid
What will people say

After Halloween

Because your role is planned for you
There's nothing you can do
But stop and think it through
But what will the boss say to you

And what will your girlfriend say to you
And the people out on the street they might glare at you
And whadya know you're pretty self-conscious too

So you run back and stuff yourselves in rigid business costumes
Only at night to score is your leather uniform exhumed
Why don't you take your social regulations
And shove 'em up your ass

Halloween-Dead Kennedy's

Does it seem strange to you?
The confetti.
The balloons.
The mile-wide grins
and the victory dance to welcome in the heir
to a state of (utter and complete) disrepair?
Because it sure seems strange to me:
they're acting like they won the fucking lottery!

I mean, shouldn't they feel terror
at the task that lies ahead:
to feed and house the people that this system's left for dead.
And could I have hit the nail much harder on the head?
It's profits before lives.
They are motivated by greed.

First they taught us to depend on their nation-states to mend
our tired minds, our broken bones, our bleeding limbs.
But now they've sold off all the splints
and contracted out the tourniquets
and if we jump through hoops then we might just survive.

Is this what we deserve?
To scrub the palace floors?
To fight amongst ourselves?
As we scramble for the crumbs they spit out,
frothing at the mouth about the scapegoats that they've chosen for us.
With every racist pointed finger I can hear the goose-steps getting closer.
They no longer represent us
so is it not our obligation
to confront this tyranny?

What is love really if it only affects, one aspect of life?
That's like a musician who only accepts, his own musical type.
That's like a preacher who only respects sunday morning, and not saturday night.

these were the words i lived by in college/just after...they are actually some of my favorite lyrics and a great song.

Sorry I'm late, I was out spoiling my liver
I couldn't wait
The sun was up for far too long today
And I can't see straight
But the two of you look awfully pretty
And I couldn't wait
Been awake for far too long today

It's so hard to face
That in this day and age
Somebody's race
Could trigger somebody's rage
And somebody's preference
Can drive some total stranger
to make somebody, somehow
feel the wrath of their anger
Why were we put here?
What for? we're unsure
We sure weren't put here to hate
Be racist, be sexist
Be bigots, be sure
We won't stand for your hate
Why so cut and dry
A simple concept missed
Give tolerance a try
This confusion still exists ignorant mongers
No area's gray
Couldn't be any wronger in this age and day
Why were we put here?
What for? we're unsure
We sure weren't put here to hate
Be racist, be sexist
Be bigots, be sure
We won't stand for your hate
Get that straight!
Now how far have we come?
How come there still are some
Who won't let some
March to the beat of a different drum
To face it, it's so hard
you must be on your guard
It's not okay
And you're not free to be a different way
Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
If we don't, then who will? shame on us
Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
Let's face it, the time is upon us

Let's Face It
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones



Pretty much saying hating people for their race, or whatever it may be, is just stupid!
