    Artist: Toxic Holocaust
    Song: Nuke the Cross

    hidden chamber beneath the earth
    built with stone and very dark
    hiding lost atomic arms
    from a war never fought
    malicious scheme, the devil's own
    weapons under his control
    overlord splits the ground, aiming for the sky
    a strike for the holy one now it's time to die

    nuke the cross

    wall of fire glowing bright
    lightning cracks across the sky
    warheads boiling to extremes
    religion is now history
    pit fiend in the hellish planes
    master of his domain
    sound of the angels crying heard throughout the night
    a strike for the holy one now it's time to die

    nuke the cross

    your savior can't retaliate
    can't fight against this storm of hate
    brought on by years of lies
    cast right out from the skies
    using stockpiles made by man
    stronger than we can grasp
    missiles launched, encased in black
    aiming for the sky
    god can't defend this strike
    now's his time to die

    Song: Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh
    Artist: Bright Eyes

    The phone slips from a loose grip
    Words were missed then, some apology
    I didn’t want to tell you this
    No, it’s just some guy she's been hanging out with
    I don’t know, the past couple weeks I guess
    Well, thank you and hang up the phone
    Let the funeral start
    Hear the casket close
    Let’s pin split-black ribbon to your overcoat
    Well, laughter pours from under doors
    In this house, I don’t understand that sound no more
    Seems artificial, like a T.V. set

    Well, haligh, haligh, a lie, haligh
    This weight it must be satisfied
    You offer only one reply
    You know not what you do
    But you tear and tear your hair from roots
    Of that same head you have twice removed now
    A lock of hair you said would prove
    Our love would never die
    Well ha ha ha

    I remember everything
    The words we spoke on freezing South Street
    And all those mornings watching you get ready for school
    You combed your hair inside that mirror
    The one you painted blue and glued with jewelry tears
    Something about those bright colors
    would always make you feel better
    But now we speak with ruined tongues
    And the words we say aren’t meant for anyone
    It’s just a mumbled sentence to a passing acquaintance
    But there was once you

    You said you hate my suffering
    And you understood
    And you’d take care of me
    You'd always be there
    Well where are you now?

    Haligh, haligh, a lie, haligh
    The plans were never finalized
    But left to hang like yarn and twine
    Dangling before my eyes
    As you tear and tear your hair from roots
    Of that same head you have twice removed now
    A lock of hair you said would prove
    Our love would never die

    And I sing and sing of awful things
    The pleasure that my sadness brings
    As my fingers press onto the strings
    In yet another clumsy chord
    Haligh, haligh, an awful lie
    This weight would now be satisfied
    I'm gonna give you only one reply
    I know not who I am

    But I talk in the mirror
    To the stranger that appears
    Our conversations are circles
    Always one sided
    Nothing is clear

    Except we keep coming back
    To this meaning that I lack
    He says the choices were given
    Now you must live them
    Or just not live
    But do you want that?
  3. Phoenix The Renegade Artist

    Artist: Sixx A.M.
    Title: Life is Beautiful
    Album: Heroine Diaries

    You can't quit until you try
    You can't live until you die
    You can't learn to tell the truth until you learn to lie
    You can't breathe until you choke
    You gotta laugh when you're the joke
    It's nothing like a funeral to make you feel alive

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funeral

    I know some things that you don't
    I've done things that you won't
    It's nothing like a trail of blood to find your way back home
    I was waiting for my hearse
    What came next was so much worse
    It took a funeral to make me feel alive

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funeral

    Alive
    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funeral

    Just open your eyes
    Just open your eyes
    And see that life is beautiful
    Will you swear on your life that no one will cry at my funera

    Song: Decode
    Artist: Paramore

    How can I decide what's right?
    When you're clouding up my mind
    I can't win your losing fight all the time
    No care to ever own what's mine
    When you're always taking sides
    But you wont take away my pride
    No not this time
    Not this time

    How did we get here?
    Well I use to know you so well
    How did we get here?
    Well, I think I know

    The truth is hiding in your eyes
    And its hanging on your tongue
    Just boiling in my blood,
    But you think that I can't see
    What kind of man that you are
    If you're a man at all
    Well, I will figure this one out
    On my own ("I'm screaming I love you so")
    On my own (My thoughts you can't decode)

    How did we get here?
    Well I use to know you so well, yeah.
    How did we get here?
    Well, I think I know

    Do you see what we've done?
    We've gone and made such fools of ourselves
    Do you see what we've done?
    We've gone and made such fools of ourselves

    Yeah
    How did we get here?
    Well I use to know you so well, yeah yeah.
    How did we get here?
    Well, I use to know you so well

    I think I know
    I think I know
    There is something I see in you
    It might kill me I want it to be true

    Randy Bachman - Prairie Town

    Born and raised in a prairie town
    Just a kid full of dreams
    We didn’t have much but an old radio
    Music came from places we’d never been

    Growing up in a prairie town
    Learning to drive in the snow
    Not much to do so you start a band
    And soon you’ve gone as far as you can go

    (chorus)
    Winter nights are long, summer days are gone
    Portage and Main fifty below
    Springtime melts the snow, rivers overflow
    Portage and Main fifty below
    Portage and Main fifty below

    All the bands in a prairie town
    Try to outdo the next in line
    Learning records out of Liverpool
    Dreams of England on their Minds

    On the other side of Winnipeg
    Neil and The Squires played the Zone
    But then he went to play
    For awhile in Thunder Bay
    He never looked back and he’s never coming home

    Just a band from a prairie town
    Sometimes we’d drive from coast to coast
    One call from LA and we’d pack and fly away
    But in our hearts we’re always prairie folk

    Looking back at a prairie town
    People ask me why I went away
    To fly with the best, sometimes you have to leave the nest
    But the prairies made me what I am today

    Song: Golden
    Artist: Fall Out Boy

    How cruel is the golden rule?
    When the lives we lived are only golden-plated
    And I knew that the lights of the city were too heavy for me
    Though I carried karats for everyone to see

    And I saw God cry in the reflection of my enemies
    And all the lovers with no time for me
    And all of the mothers raise their babies
    To stay away from me

    Tongues on the sockets of electric dreams
    Where the sewage of youth drowned the spark of my teens
    And I knew that the lights of the city were too heavy for me (too heavy for me)
    Though I carried karats for everyone to see (everyone to see)

    And I saw God cry in the reflection of my enemies
    And all the lovers with no time for me
    And all of the mothers raise their babies
    To stay away from me

    And pray they don't grow up to be...

    Swing Life Away by Rise Against
    Am I loud and clear or am I breaking up?
    Am I still your charm or am I just bad luck?
    Are we getting closer, are we just getting more lost?

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

    I've been here so long; think that its time to move
    The winter's so cold summer's over too soon
    so let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

    I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
    But we've had some times I wouldn't trade for the world
    We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go

    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand, until you hold my hand

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
    Swing life away
    Swing life away
    Swing life away
    Swing life away

    Run-DMC
    King of Rock

    I'm the king of rock, there is none higher
    Sucker MC's should call me sire
    To burn my kingdom, you must use fire
    I won't stop rockin' till I retire

    Now we rock the party and come correct
    Our cuts are on time and rhymes connect
    Got the right to vote and will elect
    And other rappers can't stand us, but give us respect

    They called us and said we're gettin iller
    There's no one chiller
    It's not Michael Jackson and this is not Thriller
    As one def rapper, I know I can hang
    I'm Run from Run-DMC, like Kool from Kool and the Gang
    Roll to the rock, rock to the roll
    DMC stands for devestating mic control
    You can't touch me with a ten foot pole
    And I even made the devil sell me his soul

    Now we crash through walls, cut through floors
    Bust through ceilings and knock down doors
    And when we're on the tape, we're fresh out the box
    You can hear our sound for blocks and blocks
    For every living person we're a purple treat
    It's me and DMC, Jay where's the beat?

    Now we're the baddest of the bad, the coolest of the cool
    I'm DMC, I rock and roll. I'm DJ Run, I rock and rule
    It's not a Trick or Treat and it's not a April Fool
    It's all brand new, never ever old school

    You got the music in your body and you can't comprehend
    When your mind won't wiggle and your knees will bend
    Music ain't nothin but a people's jam
    It's DJ Run-DMC rockin without a band

    Now I walked on ice and never fell
    I spent my time in a plush hotel
    I stood on many stages, held many mics
    Take airplane flights, at huge heights
    So all you sucker MC's, you gotta say please
    Cause when he jumps high, I'm pulling down weeds
    Got a song so strong, it's knocking down trees
    Is it hard to believe it's Run-DMC

    I am from, around the way
    And Run goes to school, every day
    And Jay plays the records he has to play
    And we get down with no delay, HEY!
    I rock the party with the words I speak
    And Run says the rhymes that are unique
    And Jay cuts the records every day of the week
    And we are the crew that can never be beat
    So don't try to diss me, try to be my friend
    Cause if you do, you'll get yours in the end
    The rhymes we say, shall set a trend
    Because a devestating rap is what we send

    Every jam we play, we break two needles
    There's three of us but we're not the Beatles
    My name is Darryl, you can call him D
    You can call me Darryl Mack, or you can call him DMC
    People always ask, "DMC, what does it mean?"
    D's for never dirty, MC for mostly clean

    Like we said before, we rock hardcore
    I'm DJ Run, I can scratch. I'm DMC, I can draw
    And now we got the knack, to attract
    Our rhyme's an aphrodisiac
    We'll reign on your brain and rock your knot
    When it comes to rock, give it all we got
    To be MC's, we got what it takes
    Let the poppers pop and the breakers break
    We're cool cool cats, it's like that
    That's the way it is, so stay the hell back
    We're causin hard times, for sucker MC's
    Cause they don't make no songs like these
    PERIOD!

    Old school rap: When rap actually had taste and meant something.

    Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince: Brand New Funk

    It's new, it's out of the ordinary
    It's rather extrordinary, so yo bust this commentary
    A literary, genius, and a superior beat creator
    have come together, and we made a
    musical composition which we think is a remedy
    to cure all the dance floors that's empty
    You wanna dance? We got what you want
    Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince bustin out with the brand new funk

    It was kind of an accident, the way that it happened
    One day I was rappin, and on the beat, Jeff was backin me up
    And all of a sudden, he brought in a cut
    And I dropped my microphone and said, "What the...?
    Hold up, Jeff, wait a minute, play it"
    He just smiled and said, "Yeah def ain't it?"
    It was {funky} it made wanna {get, get down!}
    And we knew almost at once it was the {brand new funk}
    So we continued to listen to it
    And we knew it was def when I started rappin to it
    So I gave a hi-five to Jeff
    and without hesitation popped in my cassette
    I took it home that night, and analyzed it
    Rewound the tape over and over, and memorized it
    That Friday, we went to the club
    And out and out cold tore it up!
    You shoulda seen the people dancin and shakin and movin and jumpin
    and spinnin and clappin, while the beatboxin was groovin
    and screamin and yellin while on the microphone I was flowin
    Fresh rhymes I was showin, the people say, "Yo keep goin"
    So I continued to rock, while Jeff was on the beatbox
    Special assistance from my homeboy Ready Rock
    People barged just to get up front
    to get a bird's eye view of what we call the brand new funk

    Yo Jeff! {Rock the beat}
    Yo Jeff! {Rock the beat}
    Yo Jeff! {Rock the beat}
    * Jazzy Jeff cuts and scratches *

    Yo Jeff! {Rock the beat}
    Yo Jeff! {Rock the beat}
    Yo Jeff! {Rock the beat with your hands..}
    * Jazzy Jeff cuts and scratches *

    Now get funky with the beat!
    * Jeff starts spinning backwards *
    Now turn it all around!

    The most original, amazing, astounding, miraculous
    remarkable, startling, sensational, stupendous
    music, that has ever been created
    is ours - but believe me it was complicated
    But we have done it, so now we can breathe
    a long awaited sigh of relief
    This isn't a publicity stunt
    It's the raw untouched, pure, hard brand new funk!

    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    * Jazzy Jeff cuts and scratches *
    {Rock the beat with your hands..}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    {Rock the beat}
    * Jazzy Jeff cuts and scratches *
    {Rock the beat with your hands..}
