Radiohead's Harry Patch (In Memory of ) Lyrics

Song:

Song Lyrics:
I am the only one that got through
The others died where ever they fell
It was an ambush
They came up from all sides
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves
I've seen devils coming up from the ground
I've seen hell upon this earth
The next will be chemical but they will never learn

And if you want the song for your iPod here you go.

SEO is a Lot Like Musical Analysis

The Red Hot Chili Peppers Don't Forget Me Lyrics:
I'm an ocean in your bedroom
Make you feel warm
Make you want to re-assume
Now we know it all for sure

I'm a dance hall dirty breakbeat
Make the snow fall
Up from underneath your feet
Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you want to go

I'm a meth lab first rehab
Take it all off
And step inside the running cab
There's a light that knows the way

I'm the rainbow in your jail cell
All the memories of
Everything you've ever smelled
Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you want to go

Sideways falling
More will be revealed my friend
Don't forget me
I can't hide it
Come again make me excited

I'm an inbred and a pothead
Two legs that you spread
Inside the tool shed
Now we know it all for sure

I could show you
To the free field
Overcome and more
Will always be revealed
Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you want to go

Sideways falling
More will be revealed my friend
Don't forget me
I can't hide it
Come again get me excited

I'm the bloodstain
On your shirt sleeve
Coming down and more are coming to believe
Now we know it all for sure

Make the hair stand
Up on your arm
Teach you how to dance
Inside the funny farm
Not alone, I'll be there
Tell me when you want to go

Lyrical interpretations from songmeanings.net:

i want to fuck with this song in the background. Write when he first starts screaming "OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH" is when i just get inside! Sick. Great fucking song.

and
In an article with Spin magazine Anthony Kedis said "It's about that spirit of universal love and the spirit of God. Whatever they might be to you. I don't mean it in a religious sense at all. Lets just call it an energy, or beauty. That energy is everywhere. It doesn't turn its back on people because they're fuckups, losers and dope fiends. For me, that beauty has always been there, even when I was dying. It's infinite. It's in the jail cells, it's in the oceans. It's in all of us. It's there when you're born and it's waiting for you when you die."

The Church - Under the Milky Way Tonight Song Lyrics

Bagpipes and a banjo in this one. Just about as good as it gets, especially for 80s stuff...

Song Lyrics

Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty
Sound of their breath fades with the light
I think about the loveless fascination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Lower the curtain down on Memphis
Lower the curtain down all right
I got no time for private consultation
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

And it's something quite peculiar
Something shimmering and white
Leads you here despite your destination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find
Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

And it's something quite peculiar
Something shimmering and white
Leads you here despite your destination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find
Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

Why All the Best Musicians Are Flaming Liberals?

They have empathy and compassion. They respect human life more than money.

Typically a person has to have some scars or deeply feel and understand the scars of others to be able to clearly convey emotions to a third party. And he who is scared has a better appreciation for the scars of others. To not run out of material to write about you really have to focus on somethings outside yourself too...so the legends need the flaws of humanity to keep having things to write about with depth and meaning.

My two favorite bands right now are Radiohead and U2. Thom Yorke grew up somewhat glumy most of the time and has a lazy eye. Bono's mother died when he was 12 during an attack. I am really digging some Pink Floyd right now as well, and Roger Waters is still writing new music about wars, religion, prejudice, etc.

Roger Waters Live

So passionate that man is...amazing at his age that he still has that much passion. Gio and I had second row seats, and Roger has a stage presence that reaches beyond the last row.

And the Germans kill the Jews
And the Jews kill the Arabs
And the Arabs kill the hostages
And that is the news
And is it any wonder that the monkey's confused

I suppose calling all Arabs terrorists, is like calling all Americans members of the KKK, or all Germans Nazis. The problem is the extremists, not the masses.

If I ever somehow rank #1 for Wall in Google I will have to 301 that over to a Pink Floyd site.

Is God Real?

U2's Staring at the Sun is probably my favorite song of theirs.

Summer stretching on the grass
Summer dresses pass
In the shade of a willow tree
Creeps a crawling over me
Over me and over you
Stuck together with God's glue
It's going to get stickier too

It's been a long hot summer
Let's get under cover
Don't try too hard to think
Don't think at all

I'm not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'll find
If you took a look inside
I'm not just deaf and dumb
Staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind

There's an insect in your ear
If you scratch it won't disappear
It's gonna itch and burn and sting
You want to see what the scratching brings
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will we ever live in peace?

'Cause those that can't do
Often have to
And those that can't do
Often have to preach

To the ones
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb
I'm staring at the sun
I'm not the only one
Who'd rather go blind

Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties
Daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will He listen
I'm nearly great
But there's something missing

I left it in the duty free area
But you never really belonged to me

You're not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
You step back inside
Not sucking on my thumb
I'm staring at the sun
I'm not the only one
Who's happy to go blind

Radiohead Videotape Lyrics

I think I just listened to this song like 15 times and cried probably as many. If only I had 1% of Thom's passion, creativity, or genius...

Imagine living as though death was not a worry and no harm could come of it because you found true purpose and experienced happiness and love so grand that everything else seemed arbitrary in comparison. I think that is what this song is about.

When I'm at the pearly gates
This'll be on my videotape
my videotape

When Mephistopheles is just beneath
And he's reaching up to grab me

This is one for the good days
And I have it all here
In red blue green
Red blue green

You are my centre when I spin away
Out of control on videotape
On videotape

This is my way of saying goodbye
Because I can't do it face to face

No matter what happens now
I won't be afraid
Because I know today has been the most perfect day I've ever seen.

Radiohead Nude Lyrics

Don't get any big ideas
They're not gonna happen
You paint your house white and fill in the noise
They'll take something with them

Now that you find it it's gone
Now that you feel it, you don't
You've gone off the rail {*}

She kisses you with tongues and pulls you to the ground {or sometimes: She stands stark naked and she beckons you to wait}
Don't go you'll only want to come back again
So don't get any big ideas
They're not gonna happen
You'll close it off for what you need, she can't escape you {or sometimes: you'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking}

And now that you find it, it's gone
And now that you feel it, you don't
You've gone off the rail {*}

{* or sometimes: And I'm not afraid}

lyrics from At Ease Web

Radiohead All That I Need Lyrics


i'm the next act
waiting in the wings
i'm an animal
trapped in your hot car
i'm all the days
that you choose to ignore

you are all i need
you are all i need
i'm in the middle of the picture
lying in the leaves

i am a moth
who just wants to share your light
i'm just an insect
trying to get out of the night
we only stick like glue
because there are no others

you are all i need
you are all i need
i'm in the middle of the picture
lying in the leaves

it's all right
it's all wrong
it's all right
it's all wrong
it's all right
it's all wrong
it's all right

Interpol Rocks

I have probably posted this before, but just a reminder that Interpol's first album completely rocks.

This is like my 6th favorite song on the album, and I rarely listen to whole albumbs.

I wish I could live free.
I hope it's not beyond me.
Settling down, it takes time.

One day we'll live together,
and life will be better.
I have it here yeah in my mind.
Baby, you know someday you'll slow.

and baby, my heart's been breaking

I gave a lot to you.
I take a lot from you too.
You slave a lot from me.
Guess you could say I gave you my edge.

But I can't pretend I need to defend some part of me from you.
I know I've spent some time lying.

I can't pretend I don't need to defend some part of me from you.
I know I've spent some time lying.

You're looking alright tonight.
I think we should go.
You're looking alright tonight.
I think we should go.


I have slowed down quite a bit in the last few years, especially the past few months. I need to unslow for a few months while spring / summer is still here :)
