    The Grudge (Tool)

    Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity.
    Calculate what we will or will not tolerate.
    Desperate to control all and everything.
    Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen.

    Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down.
    Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end.
    Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down.
    Terrified of being wrong. Ultimatum prison cell.

    Saturn ascends, choose one or ten. Hang on or be humbled
    again.

    Clutch it like a cornerstone. Otherwise it all comes down.
    Justify denials and grip 'em to the lonesome end.
    Saturn ascends, comes round again.
    Saturn ascends, the one, the ten. Ignorant to the damage
    done.

    Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity.
    Calculate what we will or will not tolerate.
    Desperate to control all and everything.
    Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen.

    Wear your grudge like a crown. Desperate to control.
    Unable to forgive. And we're sinking deeper.

    Defining, confining, controlling, and we're sinking deeper.

    Saturn comes back around to show you everything
    Let's you choose what you will not see and then
    Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again
    Spits you out like a child, light and innocent.

    Saturn comes back around. Lifts you up like a child or
    Drags you down like a stone
    To consume you till you choose to let this go.

    Give away the stone. Let the oceans take and
    Transmutate this cold and fated anchor.
    Give away the stone. Let the waters kiss and
    Transmutate these leaden grudges into gold.
    Let go.


    "When Kepler found his long-cherished belief did not agree with the most precise observation, he accepted the uncomfortable fact. He preferred the hard truth to his dearest illusions; that is the heart of science."
    - Carl Sagan

    This one is tough because there are so many songs I have listened to that could qualify lol. Also do you want full songs, or just verses??

      An American Hymn
      Placido Domingo
      (For our men at war)


      I have seen a summer day
      that slowly opens like a rose
      along a quiet road that wanders by
      And I have smiled and wonder'd
      Where it goes

      I have stumbled through the night
      Alone as any man can be
      Then found a silent canyon full of stars
      And in my heart I heard them telling me
      I was home

      The gentle winds, the rains that fall
      The tallest trees, and I'm part of it all

      I've seen the silver mountain tops
      And golden prairies on my way
      Now everywhere I go across the land
      I stand so proudly in the sun and say
      I am home

      I've dreamed of eden all my life
      I find it more and more each day
      Now everywhere I go across the land
      I stand so proudly in the sun and say
      I am home
      "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

      John Stuart Mill (Look him up )

        If you take what I have to say seriously, then I'm embarrassed for you.

          Aesop Rock - Daylight


          Yo...put one up to shackle me, not clean logic procreation
          I did not invent the wheel I was the crooked spoke adjacent
          While the triple sixers lassos keep angels roped in the basement
          I walk the block with a halo and a stick poking your patience
          Ya'll catch a 30 second flash visual
          Dirty cooperative net platoon bloom head trip split rediculous
          Fathom the splicing of first generation
          **** up or trickle down anti hero smack (Cracking!)
          I paste the game to zero hour completion green (Splash!)
          Duke of early retirement pick a dream
          American nightmare hogging the screen
          I'll hold the door open so you can stumble in
          if you'd stop following me around the jungle gym
          Now it's an honor and I spell it with the 'H' I stole from heritage
          Merit crutch stolen wretched refuse of my teeming resonance
          I promise temperance towards breed with a leaning conscience
          Here the creed acts since responsive but my sports the war's the wattage
          And I'm sleeping now (Wow!) yeah the settlers laugh
          You won't be laughing when your covered wagons crash
          You won't be laughing when the buzzards drag your brother's flags into rags
          You won't be laughing when your front lawn is spangled with epitaphs
          Dont be laughing!
          And I hang my boots to rest when I'm impressed
          So I triple knot them and forgot them
          This origami dream is beautiful
          but man those wings will never leave the ground
          Without a feather and a lottery ticket, now settle down

          All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day,
          put the pieces back together my way.
          All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day,
          put the pieces back together my way.
          All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day,
          put the pieces back together my way.
          All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day,
          put the pieces back together my way.

          (yes, yes, y'all, you don't stop, keep on to the break of dawn)

          Slacker bound emit a tabloid headline with a pulse
          Shimmy cross the centerfold, and a dead time engulfed
          Diddy crumbs for the better souls with seven deadly stains
          To hear the blame to crystal conscience
          To results a low life counting on one hand what he's accomplished
          Ok, link me to activism chain activate street sweep
          Plug deteriorating zenith bent Pendragon
          I hock swords cores for the morbid spreading of mad men
          (alley gospel)
          Sinking their lincoln-log cabin and Charlie Chaplin waddle
          I could zig zag and zig 'em again for the bashed dreams
          Sparking in my brick wall windows another thick installment
          Of one night in Gotham without the wretched (There is also another word here)
          Houston we have a problem
          Attached to a infested batch of city goblins
          Who split holiday freak on a box cut cinema high road bellow
          Head rips Watch red bricks turn yellow
          Sort of similar to most backbones at camp Icarus
          Raw feeling crimes congregating at pamper for bickering
          Life's not a ***** life is a beautiful woman
          Your only call her a ***** because she won't let you get that *****
          Maybe she didn't feel y'all shared any similar interests
          Or maybe you're just an ******* who couldn't sweet talk the princess
          Kiss the speaker wire or either pass it for some pagan thresh hold
          Stomach full of halo kibbles
          Wings span cast black of porn visuals hear the duck hunt ticker tape
          Vision and pick apart the pixels
          I got a friend of polar nature and it's all peace
          When I seek similar stars but can't sit at the same feast
          Metal Captain!
          This cat is asking if I've seen his little lost passion
          I told him: "Yeah, but only when I pedaled past him"




          PEACE!!!

            When me and Fif got together to do this music
            the more we became enveloped we just developed a fellowship through it
            it's no pretend sh**, it's friendship, me nemisis is your nemisis
            ain't for him, it's just media, see to them it's just images
            but this sh** is no gimmicks, this is blood in and blood out
            when it's beef you jus' gotta know when to butt in and butt out
            if there's a problem we solve it, if we don't resolve it
            it just usually jus' evolves into one big brawl and we all get involved in it
            we should all get a merit, this much beef we inherit
            and wear it like a badge with honour, pass it around and share it
            and let it go to whoevers holdin' the most current peep on their shoulders
            and their soldiers got their backs till it's over
            but tonight, we ain't comin' here to beef with nobody
            we came to party, Banks, Cashis and Mr. Ferrari
            so it's Shady After-mizz-ath back in that ass, you izz-ass
            come hizzere what kinda fizz-uckin' position is that..

            Different:
            In my mind I'ma fighter, my heart's a lighter
            My soul is the fluid, my flow sparks it right up
            Arsenic writer, author with arthritis
            Carpel tunnel, Marshall will start sh**-itis
            Hard headed and hot headed, bull headed and pig headed,
            Di** headed, a prick, a big headache I'm sick
            Quick witted, for every lyric spitted there are 6 critics
            Who wait for me to slip with it, so quick
            This dynamite stick buried the wick, it's gonna explode any minute
            Some lunatic lit it and it's not Nelly
            Do not tell me to stop yelling, when I stop selling I quit
            So stop dwelling an I am not felling
            You fu**ers are not ready, cause I got jelly, like (Beyonce's) pot belly
            This is Destiny, yes money I'm of running
            So get off of me, I'm not slowing or softening

                  I don't know about best ever...

                  I listen to a lot of hardcore music like Trivium, underOATH, As I Lay Dying, Atreyu, etc...but my vote for best lyricist RIGHT NOW and for the past decade has to go to Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20. He went the flamey route with his last album, but the way he writes can't be matched IMO.

                    Dead Prez - Propaganda Lyrics


                    Intro: (news snippets)
                    "Let me now turn, to our program for the future..."
                    "The economy right now, is extremely supportive of the president and his
                    policies"
                    "FBI scientists have found chemical traces, consistent with a bomb or a
                    missle, on a piece of wreckage..."
                    "Police using clubs and tear gas against demonstrators..."
                    "They called me a mother -(bleeped out)-ing so-and-so...and a white
                    facist...like they said, 'you're getting some of your own medicine'..."

                    Singing:
                    Telling lies, to our vision
                    Telling lies, to our children
                    Telling lies, to our babies
                    Only truth, can take us away

                    Verse 1:
                    You can't fool all the people all of the time
                    But if you fool the right ones, then the rest will fall behind
                    Tell me who's got control of your mind? your world view?
                    Is it the news or the movie you're taking your girl to? (uh)
                    Know what i'm sayin cause Uncle Sam got a plan
                    If you examine what they tellin us then you will understand
                    What they plantin in the seeds of the next generation
                    Feeding our children miseducation
                    No one knows if there's UFO's or any life on mars
                    Or what they do when they up in the stars
                    Because i don't believe a word of what the president said
                    He filling our head with lies got us hypnotised
                    When he be speaking in cold words about crime and poverty
                    Drugs, welfare, prisons, guns and robbery
                    It really means us, there's no excuse for the slander
                    But what's good for the goose, is still good for the gander
                    See...

                    Chorus:
                    I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
                    31 years ago i woulda been a panther
                    They killed Huey cause they knew he had the answer
                    The views that you see in the news is propaganda

                    Singing:
                    Telling lies, to our vision
                    Telling lies, to our children
                    Telling lies, to our babies
                    Only truth, can take us away

                    Verse 2:
                    I don't want no computer chip in my arm
                    I don't wanna die by a nuclear bomb
                    I say we all rush the pentagon, pull out guns
                    And grab the intercom, my first word's will be I believe
                    Man made God, outta ignorance and fear
                    If God made man, then why the hell would he put us here?
                    I thought he's supposed to be the all loving
                    The same God who let Hitler put the Jews in the oven
                    We don't fall for the regular ****, they try to feed us
                    All this half-ass leadership, flippin position
                    They turn politcian and shut the hell up and follow tradition
                    For your TV screen, is telling lies to your vision
                    Every channel got some brainwashed cop **** to watch
                    Running up in *****s cribs claiming that they heard shots
                    It's a plot, but busta can you tell me who's greedier?
                    Big corporations, the pigs or the media?
                    Sign of the times, terrorism on the rise
                    Commercial airplanes, falling out the sky like flies
                    Make me wonder what secrets went down with Bob Brown (?)
                    Who burnt churches to the ground with no evidence found?
                    It's not coincidence, it's been too many studied incidents
                    It coulda been the Klan who put that bomb at the Olympics
                    But it probably was the FBI, deep at the call
                    Cuz if they make us all panic then they can start martial law

                    Chorus:
                    I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
                    31 years ago i woulda been a panther
                    They killed Huey cause they knew he had the answer
                    The views that you see in the news is propaganda

                    I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
                    31 years ago i woulda been a panther
                    You killed Huey cause you knew he had the answer
                    The views that you see in the news is mutha****in propaganda

                    Singing:
                    Police is telling lies fooling millions
                    What are they teaching our kids in these school buildings?
                    Televised, enterprised in all the killing
                    Controlling our lives, this ain't living
                    No this ain't living

                    Chant:
                    FBI, CIA
                    ATF, KKK
                    IRS, TNT

                    CBS, NBC

                    Singing:
                    Telling lies, to our vision
                    Telling lies, to our children
                    Telling lies, to our babies
                    Only truth, can take us away

                    News snippet:
                    "uh, we view each other uh, with uh, a great love and a great understanding
                    and that we
                    try to expand this to the general, uh, black population and also people,
                    oppressed people all over the world, and, i think that uh, we differ from
                    uhmm... uh, some other groups simply because we understand the system better
                    than uh, most uh, groups understand the system, and uh, with this
                    realisation, uh, we attempt to form a strong political base based in the
                    community with the only strength that we have and that's the strength of uh,
                    a potentially destructive force if we don't get freedom."

                      Artist: Del The Funky Homosapien
                      Song: Battle Song Lyrics


                      Interplanetary adversaries battling for supremacy
                      Sounds like a good way to build up my infamy
                      Soon as Automator sent for me
                      We headed over to receive our registration forms from the galactic embassy
                      (Yes may I help you)
                      Remember me
                      To escape a global panic we had to intercede
                      (Oh you're here for the battle forms)
                      Yeah can we get them for free
                      (I'm afraid not you'll have to pay the entry fee)
                      It was worth a try when we 1st arrived on mercury
                      Gravity adjustment must then
                      Step up contestant
                      Number 12, I was 13 he started bursting ammunition that wasn't working
                      His rudimentary technical abilities couldn't kill me
                      Not me for a loop
                      But I can still breath
                      He had the crowd going by appearance
                      Here comes the anticipated interference from his squad and guards
                      I bust back with on slough of Hydrothermal clod that burnt they're third eye
                      The out num but I come with heat & trigger a massive explosion to the beat
                      They hit me compressed air
                      Left my chest bare
                      My sonic stun gun takes em out by the next snare
                      We won the bout just as the oxygen tanks were running out
                      so we're back to the ship
                      Pull a map from a blip
                      Manipulate the cursor
                      Recharge our essentials set the coordinates then flow
                      Through a trillion miles of space with style embrace
                      Next stop Pluto to rock these new flows
                      Atmosphere methane be strategic like a chest game
                      Leaves this mc with chest pains
                      I had to battle a shadow in his black life form
                      He dazzled me added 3 points to his score
                      Engulfed my microphone with darkness added 3 more
                      The panel started to roar
                      I had to find the core of his power
                      He stretched his text causing me to black out
                      It took my DAT out
                      I couldn't back out
                      It took out the sound man I'm taking a pounding
                      I bust out an accupella that's astounding
                      Project a uni-beam through his spleen
                      Pulled out my x-ray cannons to disintegrate the phantom
                      It's not fine my cell structure ruptured
                      His form will get bust up into clusters
                      Shadowy masses spread to the greater darkness of outer space
                      Now I'm placed 1st among artist
                      Serve due more space travel
                      Computer
                      (Yes deltron)
                      What have you
                      Next destination
                      The colony of Sicilia an earth colony
                      This is appealing
                      Hyperspace
                      With mic in place we was off breathing frost
                      in a void thinking what if we had lost
                      Ha
                      Entertain an ignorant thought
                      Land Ho, Sicilia we entered the port
                      Fill out a few forms then we meet our challenger named qusar
                      (No matter who you are I'll handle ya)
                      He's a real charmer
                      I threw on my pla-steel armor
                      He wants to absorb the talents that I worked so hard for
                      A bitter hard core
                      I busted a few shots and opened him like a car door
                      He was a quadruped, four arms
                      He hit me with four fore arms made of bronze
                      I said Automater play the song
                      (You got it)
                      Was the theme
                      Made a slight alteration in my scheme
                      Set him up with a condition beam with his double team
                      Leaned toward his dome piece and reamed the back of his neck
                      With a cranial disruption siphon
                      Squeezed out his brain like juice
                      Like a python




                      PEACE!!!

                        "Sun Doesn't Rise"

                        Some kind of evidence
                        Some kind of reason
                        Why I can't find a way
                        To begin my life

                        Somewhere in this dying day
                        If I can only find a way for my escape
                        I find it hard to concentrate with all my past mistakes

                        To begin my life

                        I can't feel my faith can't recall my crime
                        I think I sealed my fate along the way I may have lost my mind
                        I guess we're all damaged in our own way
                        Alone in our own way
                        Distant headlights desolate highway

                        Sun doesn't rise at all
                        Who knows how far I'll fall
                        Sun doesn't rise at all
                        Who knows how far I'll fall

                        With eyes wide open
                        I can't recall my crime I think I sealed my fate
                        I can watch my world evolve
                        Alone in our own way, I think I sealed my fate
                        Nothing left to die for
                        I can't recall my crime I think I sealed my fate
                        Thoughts inside can make me crawl
                        Think I sealed my fate
                        Make me drop down on my knees
                        Break me down until I question me
                        Darkness can't destroy my drive

                        Sun doesn't rise at all
                        Who knows how far I'll fall
                        Sun doesn't rise at all
                        Welcome my downfall
                        Sun doesn't rise at all

                        Somewhere in this dying day as I plan my great escape
                        I find it hard to concentrate while you maintain to control
                        I fold and falter, empty alter, all I gave I pray it makes me whole
                        I think the brink's around the corner
                        There's an error in my soul

                        I can't feel my faith can't recall my crime
                        I think I sealed my fate along the way I may have lost my mind
                        I guess we're all damaged in our own way
                        Alone in our own way
                        Distant headlights desolate highway

                        Sun doesn't rise at all
                        Who knows how far I'll fall
                        Sun doesn't rise at all
                        Who knows how far I'll fall

                        I can't feel my faith
                        Can't recall my crime
                        Damaged in our own way
                        Alone in our own way
                        Desolate highway
                        Go Huskers.

                          cemetary gates-pantera

                          Reverend, reverend
                          Is this some conspiracy?
                          Crucified for no sins
                          An image beneath me
                          What's within our plans for life?
                          It all seems so unreal
                          I'm a man cut in half in this world
                          Left in my misery...

                          The reverend he turned to me
                          Without a tear in his eyes
                          It's nothing new for him to see
                          I didn't ask him why
                          I will remember
                          The love our souls had
                          Sworn to make
                          Now I watch the falling rain
                          All my mind can see
                          Now is your (face)

                          Well I guess
                          You took my youth
                          I gave it all away
                          Like the birth of a
                          New-found joy
                          This love would end in rage
                          And when she died
                          I couldn't cry
                          The pride within my soul
                          You left me incomplete
                          All alone as the
                          Memories now unfold.

                          Believe the word
                          I will unlock my door
                          And pass the
                          Cemetery Gates

                          Sometimes when I'm alone
                          I wonder aloud
                          If you're watching over me
                          Some place far abound
                          I must reverse my life
                          I can't live in the past
                          Then set my soul free
                          Belong to me at last
                          Through all those
                          Complex years
                          I thought I was alone
                          I didn't care to look around
                          And make this world my own
                          And when she died
                          I should've cried and spared myself some pain...
                          Left me incomplete
                          All alone as the memories still remain

                          The way we were
                          The chance to save my soul
                          And my concern is now in vain
                          Believe the word
                          I will unlock my door
                          And pass the Cemetery Gates
                          the space that is mine



                          We miss 'ya brother dime. We know your up there jamming with Cliff and Chuck. Stay metal :salute: :rockon:
