PostSubject: Try to tell me these aren't some of the greatest lyrics ever written   Mon Apr 27, 2009 7:06 pm

I have a phobia
A fear of the dark
Afraid to shoot strangers
The animal talks

Guns scare me shitless
But love gun's my friend

The sentinel's coming
But is this the end

Riding on this crazy train
I'm going paranoid
Watch me lose my mind
And break the law

I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
I'm a metal machine
the rainbow in the dark is shining

I'm only metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
I'm a metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky

Is this st. anger
The ultimate sin
Or have I really
A black knight within

The gates of Babylon
Are open and wide
Shout at the devil
There's nowhere to hide

Fighting for the world to keep
The wild child in it's cage
Broke my metal heart
Against the wall

I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
I'm only metal machine
the rainbow in the dark is shining
I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
Come touch my metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky





This references so many fantastic songs, it blows my mind.

I see I may have FINALLY recruited a Sabaton fan
Thank you for spreading the word
COME SUCK MY METAL MACHINE!

I will pass of the sucking of your metal machine....

But yes, I have been a Sabaton ever since I first got into power metal. And if I can be perfectly honest, your "Fastest Guitar Solos" video was the thing that got me out of my shell. I would probably still only listen to classic rock if it wasn't for me seeing that, so thank you. From that video alone, I learned about HammerFall, Sabaton, Sonata Arctica, and Children of Bodom.

I also learned about a few others, but those were the main bands that I really got into after that.

Thank you my good man. What other songs do you like by them? I have the entire "Primo Victoria" album, but that's about it.

Into the fire (super good)
Attero Dominato
Ghost Division

I lost all my sabaton songs
But these + Metal machine are the top 5

Purple Heart is definitely one of my favorites, but Metal Machine takes the cake. That song is just a fantastic way to pay homage to all of our idols

no those are not thebest lyrics ever written
YOU NOOB
this are:
"Dear God, you made many, many poor people.
I realize, of course, that it's no shame to be poor.
But it's no great honor either!
So, what would have been so terrible if I had a small fortune?"

If I were a rich man,
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
If I were a biddy biddy rich,
Yidle-diddle-didle-didle man.

I'd build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen,
Right in the middle of the town.
A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below.
There would be one long staircase just going up,
And one even longer coming down,
And one more leading nowhere, just for show.

I'd fill my yard with chicks and turkeys and geese and ducks
For the town to see and hear.
(Insert)Squawking just as noisily as they can. (End Insert)
With each loud "cheep" "swaqwk" "honk" "quack"
Would land like a trumpet on the ear,
As if to say "Here lives a wealthy man."

If I were a rich man,
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
If I were a biddy biddy rich,
Yidle-diddle-didle-didle man.

I see my wife, my Golde, looking like a rich man's wife
With a proper double-chin.
Supervising meals to her heart's delight.
I see her putting on airs and strutting like a peacock.
Oy, what a happy mood she's in.
Screaming at the servants, day and night.

The most important men in town would come to fawn on me!
They would ask me to advise them,
Like a Solomon the Wise.
"If you please, Reb Tevye..."
"Pardon me, Reb Tevye..."
Posing problems that would cross a rabbi's eyes!

And it won't make one bit of difference if i answer right or wrong.
When you're rich, they think you really know!

If I were rich, I'd have the time that I lack
To sit in the synagogue and pray.
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall.
And I'd discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.

If I were a rich man,
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.

Lord who mad the lion and the lamb,
You decreed I should be what I am.
Would it spoil some vast eternal plan?
If I were a wealthy man.

What do you think of these lyrics ??

On the day I die

I don't want you to cry

When I can be everywhere, everything

We won't say goodbye

On the day I die

I hope it's true

That I can say I did everything

I dreamed I'd do

On the day I die

And all the fallout from the sad things I've done

I want it scattered with my ashes in the shining sun

And all the good if there's any I did do

Use it to heal all the scars left from me on you

On the day I die

Before my last breath

I hope there's not a single thing

I've left unsaid

On the day I die

I hope it's true

That I can say I didn't only live for me but I

Came through for you

On the day I die

(Repeat Chorus)

And if I've taken more, than I give

I'm sorry if I didn't always choose the best ways to live

And if I've taken more than I need

I just want to say thank you to everyone that loved me

On the day I die
