NINE INCH NAILS

"Right Where It Belongs"

See the animal in his cage that you built
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
See the safety of the life you have built
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it's all
Right where it belongs

[Chorus:]
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afraid to see?

What if all the world's inside of your head
Just creations of your own?
Your devils and your gods
All the living and the dead
And you're really all alone?
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find the woods
While you're hiding in the trees

[Chorus:]
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you used to know
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afraid to see?

Picture From Life's Other Side - Hank Williams (Marty and Hank3 version, though)

In the world's mighty gallery of pictures.
Hang the scenes that have been painted through life.
Pictures of love and of passion.
Pictures of peace and of strife.
There hang pictures of youth and of beauty.
Of old age and a blushing young bride.
They all hang on the wall, but the saddest of all.
Are the pictures from life's other side.

Just a picture from life's other side.
Someone has fell by the way.
A life that's gone out with the tide.
That might've been happy one day.
There's a poor ol' mother at home.
She's watching and waiting alone.
Just longing to hear from a loved one so dear.
Who's just a picture from life's other side.

The first scene was that of a gambler.
Who lost all of his money at play.
He took his dead mother's wedding ring from his finger.
That she wore long ago on her wedding day.
Twas his last earthly treasure and he staked it.
And he hung his head in shame that he might hide.
But when they lifted his head, oh they found he was dead.
Was a picture from life's other side.

Chorus.

The next scene was that of two brothers.
Whose pathways so different they'd led.
Well. one lived the life of a rich man.
While the other one, he begged for his bread.
Then one dark night they met out on the highway.
Your money or your life, the ol' thief cried.
And then with his knife, he took his own brother's life.
That's just a picture from life's other side.

Chorus again.

Note: The song was apparently written in the late 19th century and Hank Sr had a different version, but this is the only version I know of.

Killing The Blues (a song that reminds me of an old pal of mine who knew it who died a few years back)

Leaves are falling just like ember.
In colours red and gold, they burn like fire.
Burning just like moonbeams in our eyes.

Somebody said they saw me.
I was swinging the world by the tail.
Bouncing over a white cloud.
Killing the blues.

Now I'm guilty of something.
I hope you never do because there is nothing.
Any sadder than losing yourself in the blues.

Chorus.

Now you ask me just to leave you.
To go out on my own and get what I needed.
You want me to find what I already have.

Chorus.

Jealous Heart (a bilingual one but without the fancy stuff)

Jealous heart, oh jealous heart, stop beating.
Can't you see the damage you have done.
You have driven her away forever.
Jealous heart, now I'm the only one.

Sin tu amor, es como mi concen-cia.
Y tu amor no mede ca dor mi.
Vine que hue falto vida mia.
Sin tu amor me voy ayn-lo que-ter.

Repeat verse and chorus.

Roses For Mama (Marty Stuart)

I walked through a beautiful garden.
There were flowers all around.
A mockingbird sang me an old southern song.
What a wonderful, glorious sound.

I spied a fragrant cardenia.
Underneath the magnolia tree.
But all this beauty could not compare to my mama.
God's gift in this world to me.

Roses for mama, roses for mama.
A kiss from heaven above.
Roses for mama, roses for mama.
Here's to you with all of my love.

My mama loves pretty roses.
She says they stand in pure majesty.
In silence they cast their splendour.
Perfection for the whole world to see.

The same could be said 'bout my mama.
The sweetest gift I've ever known.
In this world of heartaches and troubles.
She's a light that stands alone.

Chorus.

These are more recent ones (1970s onwards)

Mach Die Augen Zu by Die Ärzte

Mach die Augen zu und küss mich
Und dann sag, dass du mich liebst
Ich weiß genau, es ist nicht wahr
Doch ich spüre keinen Unterschied
Wenn du dich mir hingibst

Mach die Augen zu und küss mich
Mach mir ruhig etwas vor
Ich vergesse was passiert ist
Und ich hoffe und ich träume
Ich hätt dich noch nicht verloren

Es ist mir total egal,
Ob du wirklich etwas fühlst
Tu was du willst

Mach die Augen zu und küss mich
Ist es auch das letzte Mal
Lass uns den Moment des Abschieds noch verzögern
Lass mich jetzt noch nicht allein mit meiner Qual

Mach die Augen zu und küss mich
Mach mir ruhig etwas vor
Wenn du willst kannst du dann gehen
Aber denk dran ohne dich,
Ohne dich bin ich verloren

Es ist mir absolut egal
Ob du nur noch mit mir spielst
Tu was du willst

Mach die Augen zu
Mach die Augen zu
Mach die Augen zu und küss mich
Mach die Augen zu
Mach die Augen zu
Mach die Augen zu und küss mich

Trouble - Coldplay


Oh no, I see
A spider web is tangled up with me
And I lost my head
The thought of all the stupid things I'd said

Oh no, what's this?
A spider web and I'm caught in the middle
So I turn to run
And thought of all the stupid things I've done

And oh, I never meant to cause you trouble
And oh, I never meant to do you wrong
And oh, well if I ever caused you trouble
Oh no I never meant to do you harm

Oh no, I see
Spider web and it's me in the middle
So I twist and turn
But here am I in my little bubble

Singing and oh I never meant to cause you trouble
And I never meant to do you wrong
And oh what if I ever caused you trouble
Oh, no I never meant to do you harm

They spun a web for me
They spun a web for me
They spun a web for me



(somehow I think it's recognizable for me/ my ADD mood(swings) -sometimes feeling like I am in a bubble- sometimes I am very bouncing and hyper and I say things before I think - and afterwords I am affraid that I may have said some stupid things or even hurt people with that. And I am trapped in that ADD(spiderweb). I guess they totally mean other things with this song, but it's so applicable to me how sometimes feel. I know It's a sad song, but I am always happy on the outside, I can be soooo depressed and down on the inside, LOVE THIS SONG, LOVE LOVE LOVE!)

And it's killin' me when you're away, I wanna leave and I wanna stay.
I'm so confused,So hard to choose.
Between the pleasure and the pain.
And I know it's wrong, and I know it's right.
Even if I try to win the fight, my heart would overrule my mind.
And I'm not strong enough to stay away


Song: "Not strong enough" by Apocolyptica feat. Brent Smith (Shinedown)

I won't go into thick detail on that one but these lyrics remind me of a person very, very dear to my heart. It's one of the most addicting songs ever and means a lot to me in my situation.

I don't have a choice but I still choose you
Oh I don't love you but I always will


Song: "Poison and Wine" by The Civil Wars

Same reason as above. The song is very dear to my heart for certain reasons and can make me cry as soon as I hear the chorus.

Type O Negative - All Hallows Eve. My all time favourite song by the band, even more so after my pals in Bloody Kisses busted it out at a Halloween gig last year. One verse fills my heart with black joy, the words perfectly summing the entire song up.



Fall fires burn 'neath
Black twisted boughs
Sacrifice to above
Smoke swirling quickly
Towards misting clouds
Offering of this blood
Into the flames
And without shame
Consumed with howls
And screams
Pumpkins grin
In their despair
On All Hallows Eve

Cruel be the wind
As it quells my words
I shout out to the rain
Incantations I so hoped
You've heard
That you live again
From deep Earth
Brings forth rebirth
Witness but I shant believe
From below a chilling glow
On All Hallows Eve

Be spiderwebbed
And glazed in frost
She wears death beautifully
More stunning now
Than in her life
On a bed of Autumn leaves
Into her eyes
And quite surprised
I whispered
Don't you leave
Sing macabre songs
And we'll dance 'til dawn
On All Hallows Eve


Saint Lucifer hear me
Praying to thee
On this eve of all saints
High be the price
But then nothing is free
My soul I'll gladly trade

Cold is the night
In so many ways
Luna round, full and bright
Deep be the mud
On the fresh dug graves
On yours I recite
An ancient spell
I know so well
Success is guaranteed
I'll bring you back
From where you've gone
On All Hallows Eve

The Show Must Go On - Queen

Empty spaces - what are we living for?
Abandoned places - I guess we know the score..
On and on!
Does anybody know what we are looking for?

Another hero - another mindless crime.
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime.
Hold the line!
Does anybody want to take it anymore?
The Show must go on!
The Show must go on!Yeah!
Inside my heart is breaking,
My make-up may be flaking,
But my smile, still, stays on!

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance.
Another heartache - another failed romance.
On and on...
Does anybody know what we are living for?
I guess i'm learning
I must be warmer now..
I'll soon be turning, round the corner now.
Outside the dawn is breaking,
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free!

The Show must go on!
The Show must go on! Yeah,yeah!
Ooh! Inside my heart is breaking!
My make-up may be flaking...
But my smile, still, stays on!

Yeah! oh oh oh

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies,
Fairy tales of yesterday, will grow but never die,
I can fly, my friends!

The Show must go on! Yeah!
The Show must go on!
I'll face it with a grin!
I'm never giving in!
On with the show!

I'll top the bill!
I'll overkill!
I have to find the will to carry on!
On with the show!
On with the show!

The Show must go on.

This song really hit close to home with me as I struggled to keep strong for my parents over the last years.
My mother has gotten really bad cancer twice in the last six years, while my father got cancer last year.

To stay strong for their sake in those times was almost impossible at times but we got through it.
Happy to say that both of my parents are happy, healthy and doing well today! :)

Strangely enough, this track got me through my mum's anniversary. Type O Negative, 'Everyone I Love Is Dead'.




Seems three years
Though maybe four
Someone drops dead
Whom I adore
You love someone
There will be grief
The kiss of death
Lips of a thief
Goddamnit

A dusty stack of photographs
Of times I cried But mostly laughed
Commit the past Into blue flame
Acrid smoke Cowardly shame
Goddamnit

At times I'm truly terrified
Cause dope and booze don't help to hide
They're used to mask a weakling's hurt
It's just like painting over dirt


Everyone I love is dead
Everyone I love is dead
(All dead)

Life's a game I cannot win
Both good and bad must surely end
The mirrors always tell the truth
I love myself for hating you

Everyone I love is dead
Everyone I love is dead
Everyone I love is dead
Everyone I love is dead
Goddamnit
Goddamnit
All dead

Posting from cowboylyrics due to how long it takes to write them out.

Go Rest High On That Mountain by Vince Gill

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

Go rest high on that mountain
‘Cause, Son, your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
And gathered round your grave to grieve
Wish I could see the angels’ faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

Go rest high on that mountain
‘Cause, Son, your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

Instrumental

Go rest high on that mountain
‘Cause, Son, your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

Go to Heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

If any of you ever get a chance, go onto YouTube and look for a video of Vince and Patty (not Patti) singing it at the funeral of George Jones. Be warned, though, as it is a highly emotional performance, and you might end up wanting to jump through the screen and offer hugs to absolutely everybody (like I do and mainly with Vince)

Wrong Side of Heaven-- Five Finger Death Punch

I spoke to God today, and she said that she's ashamed.
Who have I become, what have I done?
I spoke to the Devil today, and he said he's not to blame.
And I understood, 'cause I feel the same.

Arms wide open, I stand alone.
I'm no hero, and I'm not made of stone.
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell.
I'm on the wrong side of Heaven, and the righteous side of Hell.

I heard from God today, and she sounded just like me.
What have I done, and who have I become?
I spoke to the Devil today, and he looked a lot like me.
I looked away, I turned away!

Arms wide open, I stand alone.
I'm no hero, and I'm not made of stone.
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell.
I'm on the wrong side of Heaven, and the righteous side of Hell.

I'm not defending, downward descending,
Falling further and further away!
I'm closer EVERYDAY!
I'm getting closer every day, to the end.

To the end.
The end.
The end.
I'm getting closer EVERYDAY!



I can totally relate, because I can see how much I am like my father, who is the biggest demon in my life right now. I often feel alone and invisible, so, again, I can relate. Look it up on Youtube. It's very deep and beautiful. FFDP can write some moving stuff.

I hope nobody minds if I post an Italian song, by Marco Castoldi "Morgan".

The title is Altrove (Elsewhere) and is about a man who decides to leave his flat and not to fight against his life anymore: "Lascio che le cose mi portino altrove" (I let things drive me elsewhere).

Two lines always move me
"Oggi ho messo la giacca dell'anno scorso, che così mi riconosco ed esco" (Today I've put on the jacket I wore last year, so that I recognise myself, and I go out)
"Prendo tutta la cosmogonia e la butto via e mi ci butto anche io" (I take the whole cosmogony and throw it away, and so I throw myself away).

If I could ever meet Morgan and Rammstein, I mean if could talk to them for real, I would really suggest a collaboration for some acoustic version of their songs.

Morgan is a good singer (a tenor, I guess) and a fine composer. Moreover, he's not a fake, from his private life he really got an aura of poète maudit that would fit Rammstein very well.

The videoclip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJwsOVGWk8c

Altrove (Elsewhere)

Però, (che cosa vuol dire però)
Mi sveglio col piede sinistro
Quello giusto

Forse Già lo sai
che a volte la follia
Sembra l'unica via
Per la felicità

C'era una volta un ragazzo
chiamato pazzo
e diceva sto meglio in un pozzo
che su un piedistallo

Oggi ho messo
la giacca dell'anno scorso
che così mi riconosco
ed esco

Dopo i fiori piantati
quelli raccolti
quelli regalati
quelli appassiti

Ho deciso
di perdermi nel mondo
anche se sprofondo
lascio che le cose
mi portino altrove
non importa dove
non importa dove

Io, un tempo era semplice
ma ho sprecato tutta l'energia
per il ritorno

Lascio le parole non dette
e prendo tutta la cosmogonia
e la butto via
e mi ci butto anch'io

Sotto le coperte
che ci sono le bombe
è come un brutto sogno
che diventa realtà

Ho deciso
di perdermi nel mondo
anche se sprofondo

Applico alla vita
i puntini di sospensione
Che nell'incosciente
non c'è negazione
un ultimo sguardo commosso all'arredamento
e chi si è visto, s'è visto

Svincolarsi dalle convinzioni
dalle pose e dalle posizioni

Lascio che le cose
mi portino altrove
altrove
altrove

Svincolarsi dalle convinzioni
dalle pose e dalle posizioni

Svincolarsi dalle convinzioni
dalle pose e dalle posizioni

I could not escape from posting another song, originally written by Fabrizio De André, and recently covered by Morgan: "La ballata dell'amore cieco" (The ballad of blind love).

It talks about a man who is madly in love with a woman, and she asks him to sacrifice everything for her: his mother, himself. She laughs her head off while he's dying, but in the end she's shocked to see that the man is happy.

He smiles while he dies, because he's in love, while she will end up with nothing in her hands.

A video of Morgan's tribute to Fabrizio De André: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf40y5j_0BM

Un uomo onesto, un uomo probo,
tralalalalla tralallalero
s'innamorò perdutamente
d'una che non lo amava niente.

Gli disse portami domani,
tralalalalla tralallalero
gli disse portami domani
il cuore di tua madre per i miei cani.

Lui dalla madre andò e l'uccise,
tralalalalla tralallalero
dal petto il cuore le strappò
e dal suo amore ritornò.

Non era il cuore, non era il cuore,
tralalalalla tralallalero
non le bastava quell'orrore,
voleva un'altra prova del suo cieco amore.

Gli disse ancor se mi vuoi bene,
tralalalalla tralallalero
gli disse ancor se mi vuoi bene,
tagliati dei polsi le quattro vene.

Le vene ai polsi lui si tagliò,
tralalalalla tralallalero
e come il sangue ne sgorgò
correndo come un pazzo da lei tornò.

Gli disse lei ridendo forte,
tralalalalla tralallalero
gli disse lei ridendo forte,
l'ultima tua prova sarà la morte.

E mentre il sangue lento usciva
e ormai cambiava il suo colore,
la vanità fredda gioiva,
un uomo s'era ucciso per il suo amore.

Fuori soffiava dolce il vento
tralalalalla tralallalero
ma lei fu presa da sgomento
quando lo vide morir contento.

Morir contento e innamorato
quando a lei nulla era restato
non il suo amore non il suo bene
ma solo il sangue secco delle sue vene.
