    One Day Remains (Alter Bridge)
    I interpret the song as, Don't give up

    And as your will is bent and broken
    And every vision has been cast into the wind
    As your courage crashes down before your eyes
    Don't lay down and die

    'Cause I see in you
    More than you'll ever know
    And I ask you why
    You question the strength inside
    And you need to know
    How it feels to be alive

    When every wound has been reopened
    And in this world of give and take you must have faith
    And the distance to your dreams stretch beyond reach
    Don't lay down and die

    How it feels
    How it feels to be alive
    How it feels
    How it feels to be alive
    How it feels
    How it feels to be alive, oh
    Oh, oh

    Recently I've enjoyed Alkaline Trio's Radio. " I'm shaking like a dog shitting razor blades." " I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you. Plugged in and ready to fall."

    I'm woven in a fantasy,
    I can't believe the things I see
    The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall
    And with each passing day I feel a little more like something dear was lost

    It rises now before me,
    A dark and silent barrier between,
    All I am, and all that I would ever want to be
    It's just a travesty,
    Towering, marking off the boundaries my spirit would erase

    To pass beyond is what I seek,
    I fear that I may be too weak
    And those are few who've seen it through to glimpse the other side,
    The promised land is waiting like a maiden that is soon to be a bride

    The moment is a masterpiece,
    The weight of indecision's in the air
    Standing there,
    The symbol and the sum of all that's me
    It's just a travesty,
    Towering, blocking out the light and blinding me
    I want to see

    Gold and diamonds cast a spell,
    It's not for me, I know it well
    The riches that I seek are waiting on the other side
    There's more than I can measure in the treasures of the love that I can find

    And though it's always been with me,
    I must tear down the wall and let it be
    All I am, and all that I was ever meant to be,
    In harmony
    Shining true and smiling back at all who wait to cross
    There is no loss

    Too many to list. Here's a topical one:

    "And if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao,
    You ain't gonna make it with anyone, anyhow."

    Feel the Bern, baby.

    Ooh la la - the Faces

    Poor old granddad
    I laughed at all his words
    I thought he was a bitter man
    He spoke of woman's ways

    They'll trap you, then they use you
    Before you even know
    For love is blind and you're far too kind
    Don't ever let it show

    I wish that I knew what I know now
    When I was younger
    I wish that I knew what I know now
    When I was stronger

    The can can's such a pretty show
    They'll steal your heart away
    But backstage, back on earth again
    The dressing rooms are gray

    They come on strong and it ain't too long
    Before they make you feel a man
    But love is blind and you soon will find
    You're just a boy again

    When you want her lips, you get a cheek
    Makes you wonder where you are
    If you want some more and she's fast asleep
    Then she's twinkling with the stars

    Poor young grandson, there's nothing I can say
    You'll have to learn, just like me
    And that's the hardest way
    Ooh la la, ooh la la la yeh

    I wish that I knew what I know now
    When I was younger
    I wish that I knew what I know now
    When I was stronger

    Your name and mine inside
    A heart on a wall
    Still finds a way to haunt me
    Though they're so small

    From deep inside the tears
    I'm forced to cry
    From deep inside the pain
    That I chose to hide

    Now as the rain burns down upon my weary eyes
    For me it cries

    Name that tune! SmokinSmile

    "We chase misprinted lies,
    we face the path of time,
    and yet I fight,
    and yet I fight,
    this battle all alone,
    no one to cry to, no place to call home"

    The Palouse. An awful place. Stay away.
    You sheltered me from harm
    Kept me warm, kept me warm
    You gave my life to me
    Set me free, set me free
    The finest years I ever knew
    Were all the years I had with you

    And I would give anything I own
    Give up my life, my heart, my home
    I would give everything I own
    Just to have you back again

    You taught me how to love
    What it's of, what it's of
    You never said too much
    But still you showed the way
    And I knew from watching you
    Nobody else could ever know
    The part of me that can't let go

    And I would give anything I own
    Give up my life, my heart, my home
    I would give everything I own
    Just to have you back again

    Is there someone you know
    You're loving them so
    But taking them all for granted
    You may lose them one day
    Someone takes them away
    And they don't hear the words you long to say

    I would give anything I own
    Give up my life, my heart, my home
    I would give everything I own
    Just to have you back again
    Just to touch you once again

    It's been so long since I've been gone
    Another day might be too long for me
    Traveling around I've had my fill
    Of broken dreams and dirty deals
    A concrete jungle surrounding me
    Many nights I've slept out in the streets
    I paid my dues and I changed my style
    Seen hard times. all over now

    I want to come home. it's been so long since I've been away
    And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
    I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay

    I miss old friends that I once had
    Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
    I don't know why the thought came to me
    But why I'm here I really can't see. and now

    I want to come home. it's been so long since I've been away
    And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
    I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay
    Coming home to stay
    Coming home to your love, mama
    I've seen better days

    I miss old friends that I once had
    Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
    I don't know why the thought came to me
    But why I'm here I really can't see. and now

    I want to come home. it's been so long since I've been away
    And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
    I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay
    Coming home to stay

    I wanna go back to Ohio State
    To old Columbus town,
    To the stadium to hear the band,
    By far the finest in the land,
    I wanna go back to Ohio State
    To old Columbus town,
    I wanna go back,
    I gotta go back,
    To Ohio
    Ohio, Ohio
    The hills send back the cry [O - H!]
    We're here to do or die [I - O!]
    Ohio, Ohio
    We'll win the game or know the reason why!
    And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of booze!
    And we'll drink to old Ohio,
    'Til we wobble in our shoes!
    Ohio, Ohio
    We'll win the game or know the reason why!

    Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
    Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
    Well it's all right, doing the best you can
    Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand

    You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring (end of the line)
    Waiting for someone to tell you everything (end of the line)
    Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring (end of the line)
    Maybe a diamond ring

    Well it's all right, even if they say you're wrong
    Well it's all right, sometimes you gotta be strong
    Well it's all right, as long as you got somewhere to lay
    Well it's all right, everyday is judgment day

    Maybe somewhere down the road aways (end of the line)
    You'll think of me, wonder where I am these days (end of the line)
    Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays (end of the line)
    Purple haze

    Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove
    Well it's all right, if you got someone to love
    Well it's all right, everything'll work out fine
    Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line

    Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive (end of the line)
    I'm just glad to be here, happy to be alive (end of the line)
    It don't matter if you're by my side (end of the line)
    I'm satisfied

    Well it's all right, even if you're old and grey
    Well it's all right, you still got something to say
    Well it's all right, remember to live and let live
    Well it's all right, the best you can do is forgive

    Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
    Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
    Well it's all right, even if the sun don't shine
    Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line

    A few examples from They Might Be Giants....

    Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket?
    Or was everybody dancing on the casket?...

    Now I rock a barstool and I drink for two...

    I just stood there whistling "there goes the bride as she walked out the door"...

    Where was I? I forgot the point that I was making. I said if I were smart that I would save up for a piece of string and a rock to wind the string around...

    1. go ahead bite the big apple, don'tmind the maggots uh-huh

    2. Got a wife and kids in Baltimore, Jack
    I went out for a ride and I never went back
    Like a river that don't know where it's flowing
    I took a wrong turn and I just kept going.

    3. Some silicone sister with a manager
    Mister told me I go what it takes
    She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong
    Play the song with the funky break"
    And go-cart mozart was checking out the
    Weather chart to see if it was safe outside
    And little early-pearly came by in his
    Curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride
    Asked me if I needed a ride
    .
    love these songs
