Stand...






Frank Marino - Stand!

Stand!
Well stand your ground,
Give it everything you can,
Stand

Well don't fall down,
Turn around and make your stand.
We've only just begun to understand,
What precious moments we have had,
And though the times appear to look so bad,
We must move forward if we can.

Stand!
Well stand your ground,
Give it everything you have,
Stand!
Well don't lay down,
Don't go down, you've got to stand.
Too many times we'll speak of all the bad,
And wag our finger like we know,
It's not enough to be right and not act,
We're measured just by what we show.

Stand!
Make your stand,
Give it everything you can,
Stand!
Don't fall back,
Turn around and make your stand.
The time has come my friend,
We must be one my friend,
If we're to make it till the end.
The quake upon the land,
Has cracked the hourglass,
It's quickly spilling all its sand.
Stand!
I never want to hear that it's too late,
That only makes one lay and die,
A mountain can be moved by just one's faith,
You'll see you only have to try.

Stand!
Make your stand,
Give it everything you can,
Stand!
Don't fall back,
Don't go down, you've got to stand.
The time has come my friend,
We must be strong my friend,
If we're to make it till the end.
Wake up your sleeping heads,
See hope is never dead,
Its light shall shine until the end.
March forward one and all,
Fear not that you may fall,
You have to stand once and for all.
And in your hour of need,
When all's uncertainty,
You must believe, you must believe.
Stand!

Make your stand,
Give it everything you can,
Stand!
Don't fall back,
Don't go down, you've got to stand.

The railroad...








Grand Funk Railroad - The Railroad

Up each morning at five o'clock,
Seem like the noon-day sun ain't never gonna' stop.
The work is hard in a railroad yard,
Hey, hey, gotta' make it today to punch a time card.
Workin' on the railroad.

Oh, you know, the railroad is a mighty good line,
Come on and ride the railroad, one more time.
Oh, you know, the railroad is a mighty good line,
Come on and ride the railroad, one more time.

Dirt and sweat, runnin' down my back,
Workin' on the railroad.
Work all day long up and down the railroad tracks.
Workin' on the railroad.
I'm a God fearing man, and with many I stand,
Workin' on the railroad.
And with God we've been working, all hand in hand.
Workin' on the railroad.

Oh, you know, the railroad is a mighty good line,
Workin' on the railroad.
Come on and ride the railroad, one more time.
Workin' on the railroad.
Oh, you know, the railroad is a mighty good line,
Come on and ride the railroad, one more time.

We won't get fooled again...






Who - We Won't Get Fooled Again

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet

And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around

Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around

Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!


I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around

Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!


Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

When the lights are down






Kamelot - When The Lights Are Down

Rules without exceptions last eternally
Every move you make creates your destiny

I've come to soak my
Sorrow in Halo Black
As black as the seal on my soul
Cause when the lights are down
There's no more to say
Love is the real pain
An internal revolution in my mind

Cause when the lights are down
You're so far away
Tell me your real name
In the silence of the darkness we unite
(Rules without exceptions last eternally
Every move you make creates your destiny)
What can protect me from the past
And all the things that I have done
She told me
And then she was gone
Cause when the lights are down
There's no more to say
Deep in the shadows
Where the last of my delusions made a stand
Cause when the lights are down
She'll take me away
Tell me her real name
And in death we'll live the love we never had
Oh come all ye faithful
Beneath the Moon
Beneath the Moon
Into the void as one
Marching on
Cause when the lights are down
There's no more to say
Love is the real pain
An internal revolution in my mind

And when the lights are down
She'll take me away
Tell me her real name
And in death we'll live the love we never had

Bright lights







Audrey Horne - Bright Lights

Soaked in fluids and drained in the stench of kerosene 
I will leave a light on, drop a matchstick to tell you where I'm going 

I'll burn this town down to light up your way, just to follow these bright lights 
I will burn these bridges, leave a dead stare, oh honey you deserve these flames
I'll tear this town down and leave a road sign, just follow this dead trail


Broken, everything is broken, we've buried the black box recorder, they'll never get the evidence
Suffocating, oh hell we are the bittersweet taste, the perfect lie
Nothing ever changes here. Burn it down, and we'll watch it all go down in flames
Let's set the record straight, and end it all in flames

I'll burn this town down to light your way up

One of these nights






Eagles - One of these Nights

One of these nights 
One of these crazy old nights 
We're gonna find out 
Pretty mama 
What turns on your lights 
The full moon is calling 
The fever is high 
And the wicked wind whispers 
And moans 

You got your demons 
You got desires 
Well, I got a few of my own 

Oo, someone to be kind to in 
Between the dark and the light 
Oo, coming right behind you 
Swear I'm gonna find you 
One of these nights 

One of these dreams 
One of these lost and lonely dreams 
We're gonna find one 
One that really screams 

I've been searching for the daughter 
Of the devil himself 
I've been searching for an angel in white 
I've been waiting for a woman who's a little 
Of both 
And I can feel her but she's nowhere 
In sight 

Oo, loneliness will blind you 
In between the wrong and the right 
Oo, coming right behind you 
Swear I'm gonna find you 
One of these nights 

One of these nights 
In between the dark and the light 
Coming right behind you 
Swear I'm gonna find you 
Get 'ya baby one of these nights 
One of these nights 
One of these nights 
I can feel it 
I can feel it 
One of these nights 
Coming right behind you 
Swear I'm gonna find you now 
One of these nights..

Before the dawn






Judas Priest - Before The Dawn

Before the dawn I hear you whisper
In your sleep, "Don't let the morning take him"

Outside the birds begin to call
As if to summon up my leaving
It's been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I've waited too long, and now you're leaving
Oh, please don't take it all away
It's been a lifetime since I found someone
Since I found someone who would stay
I've waited too long, and now you're leaving
Oh, please don't take it all away
Before the dawn, I hear you whisper
In your sleep, "Don't let the morning take him"

Strange wings






Savatage - Strange Wings

She is a native of the stormy skies, yeah
I, I caught a glimpse from the depths of my eyes
Atop a black winged mare, casting a wicked stare
She throws her head back and rides into the night
She flies strange wings behind a thin disguise
She flies strange wings, still tears, she cries
Oh I, I followed her to the brink of dawn, yeah
She, she took control of my very soul, yeah
She's still a mystery, in her arms, I long to be
I don't know why I turn and reach to the sky
She flies strange wings behind a thin disguise
She flies strange wings, still tears, she cries
She flies strange wings behind a thin disguise
She flies strange wings, still tears, she cries
Strange wings behind a thin disguise, oh
Strange wings behind a thin disguise, oh
Strange wings

Σ'αυτούς που μας άφησαν σημάδια..





Σ'αυτούς που μας άφησαν σημάδια...
Σε σημάδια που τα βλέπεις και εύχεσαι να μπορούσες να τα ξαναζήσεις.
Σ'αυτούς που μας έγιναν σημείο αναφοράς...
Που όπου και να βρεθείς, το βλέμμα γυρνάει εκει.
Σ'αυτούς θα πιω.
Στα σημάδια.
Στο στίγμα.

Είναι η ζωή μας άδικη, ή εμείς την αδικούμε;

Μου λες πως "άδικη είναι η ζωή, δεν θα τα καταφέρεις"
"Προσπέρασε με, άσε με, γιατί θα υποφέρεις"

"Άλλα εχω στο μυαλό, δεν ξερω κι εγω τι θέλω
δεν πιστεύω σ'άνθρωπο, δεν θέλω να υποφέρω"

Ξέρω εσυ τι τράβηξες, γιατί είσαι "μαγκωμένη"
Αγάπη έδωσες πολύ και νιώθεις "αδειασμένη"

Στον έρωτα, αρχόντισσα, ταμπέλα εγώ δεν βάζω
Να σ'εχω σαν τα μάτια μου, μ'αυτα να σε θαυμάζω

Αφέσου εσυ στα χέρια μου, να διώξω την φοβία
Όλα τα χρώματα να δεις, να νιώσεις ευτυχία

Χωρίς εσένα δεν μπορώ, να βρω καμιά γαλήνη
Μα σαν δίπλα σου σταθώ, η ζωή χαρά μου δίνει


Sitting by the window...






Moby Grape - Sitting by the window

I was sitting by the window
Watchin' for the rain
The reflection of your picture
Against my window pane
But just the same
I'm playin' my game
And I guess you're playin' it too
Go ahead and play it on through
The times we had together
It was sunny every day
Now it's cloudy every morning
And it stays that way all day
But just the same
I'm playin' my game
And I guess you're playin' it too
Go ahead and play it on through
I was sitting by the window
Watchin' for the rain
I thought you were beside me
Just like before the rain
But just the same
I'm playin' my game
And I guess you're playin' it too
Go ahead and play it on through

Walking in the air






Nightwish - Walking in the air

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I'm holding very tight
I'm riding in the midnight blue
I'm finding I can fly so high above with you


Far across the world
The villages go by like trees
the rivers and the hills
The forest and the streams

Children gaze open mouth
Taken by suprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We're surfing in the air
We're swimming in the frozen sky
We're drifting over icy
mountains floating by

Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep
We're walking in the air
We're floating in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

Red Sector A







Rush - Red Sector A

All that we can do is just survive
All that we can do to help ourselves is stay alive


Ragged lines of ragged grey
Skeletons, they shuffle away
Shouting guards and smoking guns
Will cut down the unlucky ones

I clutch the wire fence until my fingers bleed
A wound that will not heal
A heart that cannot feel
Hoping that the horror will recede
Hoping that tomorrow we'll all be freed

Sickness to insanity
Prayer to profanity
Days and weeks and months go by
Don't feel the hunger 
Too weak to cry

I hear the sound of gunfire at the prison gate
Are the liberators here?
Do I hope or do I fear?
For my father and my brother, it's too late
But I must help my mother stand up straight


Are we the last ones left alive?
Are we the only human beings to survive?
