OK I really like the video clip, I'll admit it, but the words are ok too. I can just imagine Yoda saying the 2nd last line; And in the end on dreams we will depend

Showing my age a bit:

Van Halen - Dreams

World turns black and white
Pictures in an empty room
Your love starts fallin' down
Better change your tune
Yeah, you reach for the golden ring
Reach for the sky
Baby, just spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

Run, run, run away
Like a train runnin' off the track
Got the truth bein' left behind
Falls between the cracks
Standin' on broken dreams
Never losin' sight, ah
Well just spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

So baby dry your eyes
Save all the tears you've cried
Oh, that's what dreams are made of
'Cause we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh, that's what dreams are made of

Yeah, we'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
Higher and higher
Leave it all behind
Oh, we'll get higher and higher
Who knows what we'll find?

So baby dry your eyes
Save all the tears you've cried
Oh, that's what dreams are made of
Oh baby, we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh, that's what dreams are made of

And in the end on dreams we will depend
'Cause that's what love is made of

"Be yourself" -Audio Slave
!


Someone falls to pieces, sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain, spinning in the silence
To finally drift away

Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard and catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen, white roses on a grave

Yeah and to be yourself is all that you can do
Hey, to be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone, another only pain
Someone tries to hide himself, down inside himself he prays
Someone swears his true love until the end of time
Another runs away, separate or united, healthy or insane

And to be yourself is all that you can do, yeah
(All that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)

To be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)
Hey, be yourself is all that you can do

Even when you've paid enough
Been pulled apart or been held up
Every single memory of the good or bad
Faces of luck

Don't lose any sleep tonight
I'm sure everything will end up alright
You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do, yeah
To be yourself is all that you can do

Oh, to be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)
Hey, to be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)

To be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can do

I've got a couple :)

"Carry on Wayward Son" by KANSAS:
Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreamin', I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say

Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Now your life's no longer empty
Surely heaven waits for you

Carry on my wayward son,
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

AND

"Misguided Ghosts" by PARAMORE
I am going away for a while
But I'll be back don't try and follow me
Cause I'll return as soon as possible
See I'm tryin' to find my place
But it might not be here where I feel safe
We all learn to make mistakes,

And run from them
From them
With no direction
We'll run from them
From them
With no conviction

Cause I'm just one of those ghosts
Traveling endlessly
Don't need no roads
In fact they follow me
And we just go in circles

Now I'm told that this is life
Pain is just a simple compromise
So we can we get what we want out of it
Will someone care to classify
A broken heart and twisted minds
So I can find, someone to rely on,

And run to them
to them
Full speed ahead
Oh you are not
Useless
We are just

Misguided ghosts
Traveling endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there's no one road
We should not be the same
I'm just a ghost
And still they echo me
They echo me in circles.
Whatever we experience as existing,
as continuing in time,
is not so much persistent stuff
as repetitive rhythm or vibration.

Telling Stories by Tracy Chapman, because things are often more complex than they seem.



There is fiction in the space between
The lines on your page of memories
Write it down but it doesn’t mean
You’re not just telling stories
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There is fiction in the space between
You and reality
You will do and say anything
To make your everyday life
Seem less mundane
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There’s a science fiction in the space between
You and me
A fabrication of a grand scheme
Where I am the scary monster
I eat the city and as I leave the scene
In my spaceship I am laughing
In your remembrance of your bad dream
There’s no one but you standing

Leave the pity and the blame
For the ones who do not speak
You write the words to get respect and compassion
And for posterity
You write the words and make believe
There is truth in the space between

There is fiction in the space between
You and everybody
Give us all what we need
Give us one more sad sordid story
But in the fiction of the space between
Sometimes a lie is the best thing
Sometimes a lie is the best thing

"It's My Life"-Bon Jovi



This ain't a song for the brokenhearted
No silent prayer for the faith departed
And I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder, make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky, gotta make your own breaks

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive
[ From: www.elyrics.net/read/b/bon-jovi-lyrics/it_s-my-life-lyrics.html ]

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

You better stand tall
When they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break
Baby, don't back down

It's my life
It's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just wanna live while I'm alive

(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, "I did it my way"
I just wanna live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!

The song really puts emphasis on that tomorrow is never given that we all have to live for today, as hard as it may be, its all we got. We need to be open about what we believe and not be afraid of what lies outside our comfort box or what may be on the horizon. Embrace it and make it YOUR life

Drowning (Face Down)
Saving Abel
Single



"Drowning (Face Down)"

Times before I walked through the valley
Below the sun
I've wandered endlessly and waited for
My time to come

I think I'm drowning
Can someone lend a hand?
Can someone save me?
Cause I don't think I can

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying face down

Returning home I find myself
Wishing I was already gone
But how long does it take to find me
Well I'm waiting for someone

I think I'm drowning
Can someone lend a hand?
Can someone save me?
Cause I don't think I can

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying face down

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying, Lying

I've gone too far to turn around
I've gone too far to turn around
In a moment
Lying face down

At my walk in life right now this makes sense. I cannot turn back to go on the path I had just walked, but keep treking onwards in hope that someone will join me on the path. Though I may be drowning if a figurative pool of sorrow, I am still loved be others and have a future ahead. I need help though, and the Force and the people that believe in it are there to help

"Hero"- Skillet



I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losing my faith today
Falling off the edge today

I am just a man
Not superhuman
I'm not superhuman
Someone save me from the hate

It's just another war
Just another family torn
Falling from my faith today
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

I've gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today
My voice will be heard today

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
I'm not superhuman
My voice will be heard today

It's just another war
Just another family torn
My voice will be heard today
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time
(From: www.elyrics.net/read/s/skillet-lyrics/hero-lyrics.html)

I need a hero to save my life
I need a hero, just in time
Save me just in time
Save me just in time

Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?
We're in the fight of our lives
And we're not ready to die

Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero, I've got a hero
Living in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind
And if it kills me tonight
I will be ready to die

A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?

(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero

I need a hero
A hero's gonna save me just in time


THe song is speaks to me and has guided me to believe that I am the protector, just like what we learn during our time as initiates. The song is centered that there is a Hero in us all, and that there are the heroes of everyday that have stepped up to the call. We must choose to do so, or wait for it, We will all experience the time in our life that will open our eyes to this realization.

i am so happy that i came across this thread as i find the songs very interesting when i think about it. it was really another boring day in the office and this really made my day worthwhile as i have been searching for the songs so that i may listen to them although i have yet to find a good song to post hopefully there will be more people sharing in this thread too.

Yes, I know someone will say something... but have you listened to the lyrics?

    • Gisteron (and Khaos, for this matter) - you are certainly well versed in the rules of argument and debate, and I respect that you strive to be accurate in your claims. When debating any topic, the material claims should always be supported with evidence and the evidence should always be sourced. It makes the entire discussion easier to follow for all involved and allows for a more specific line of questioning. In the end, we should all be able to agree on the most logical conclusion presented. That being said, a debate of this nature only works when both sides respect and follow these guidelines. I believe some of the misunderstandings or animosity toward your posts and replies comes from the fact that not everyone here is interested in a formal debate. Others may have no idea they are in one. Some of us understand we are debating, but go about it all wrong. As a debater, the goal is always to present the stronger argument based on sound logic and factual evidence while refuting the claims of your opponent, thus becoming the "winner". There is very little room for emotion Most conversations in this forum would not qualify as debates, and not everyone is interested in winning or losing. As a result, it seems that some get very defensive at any line of questioning. I personally appreciate that you challenge certain statements as it makes me take a second look at the line of reasoning and whether I agree with you or not, I usually end up learning something along the way. Just my two cents.
    • Pop killed the Rock star (Last post by tzb)
    • I can't talk about American MTV, but in the UK we have a channel called MTV ROCKS which is exclusively guitar bands. Every generation views the subsequent one as inferior to its own, but the fact is when you move out of MTV's demographic it's bound to seem less relevant. You've changed as much as the channel has. The marketplace is huge these days and MTV can't contain it all. Disco isn't even dead... check out labels like Italians Do It Better. Given the rise of the internet as the primary source of content for most people, I don't think it's really a big problem. Dave Grohl is a legend and I love him, but his attitude is a product of generation X. What are we now, generation Z? Generation -A? Whatever you call it, it doesn't need MTV. I remember my grandparents describing The Beatles as "a dreadful racket"... you're getting old, man :D

I found that all the others I read about did have a brush with the dark side. Not a great track record, eh?
    • Elite: Dangerous (Last post by Streen)
    • If I'm not mistaken, open Beta starts today. Ya'll might want to see if you can download it :D Adder, have you played the game? I ask because you basically described exactly what the game is like. Energy weapons, ballistics, energy transfers between weapons, shields, and engines, gimballed weapons, locking weapons on target... that's all fact. Of course, you have to make money in-game to afford the better weapon systems and larger and/or higher quality ships. The one thing I love about the game is the same thing I hate. It's complicated. I've been playing for a couple weeks now and I still haven't figured out what I'm supposed to do, or some of the more unclear functions of my ship. But then, that's cool, because it means I can do whatever I want. The main problem is making money/trading. Still haven't figured that out either. Quote: Are there 400 thousand million stars in this galaxy ? :huh: I'm sorry, LOL. :silly: The game doesn't take place in OUR galaxy. The number is right, as the game claims, though I imagine it is somehow randomized since it would be impossible to program 400 billion star systems. One last point to make is that to play the game properly, you'll need a joystick. I've tried playing with a mouse, xbox controller, and one low-end joystick. I wasn't satisfied with control of my ship until I got the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick. It comes with a separate throttle and even more buttons :laugh: It's pretty hardcore. There are much more complex and expensive ones though, so this was a compromise. If any of you guys end up playing, let me know!

    • Everything is Made of Energy Stuff (Last post by Adder)
    • Quote: Quote: Different people might get different things from questions, what is 'truth' is best described as whatever helps that person progress closer to moving forward in whatever areas of their life they seek improvement. Doesn't mean we have to ignore the facts in that process. So what if there is a proposition that is not factual but does help the person in the sense that you suggest? By your definition it would then still be truth. So while truth doesn't necessarily conflict with reality, it can, by your standard. Now do you yourself find that an appropriate standard? I suppose this comes down to semantics anyway. Surely there may potentially be partially beneficial things that are in conflict with reality, its just that I couldn't label them as "true" from that point on, because my definition of truth is one that does require conformity with reality. I think growth is the drive of human learning, so its sort of in that context. In complexity 'correct' does not have to mean completely true, it can just mean movement towards truth.... depends on what is being asked I suppose. Not everything has empirical standards to be assessed by, but yes I think I understand what your saying - its why I tried to make a subtle differentiation by using two different terms, between truth (how I used it then) and fact.

    • This Week In Science (Last post by Khaos)
    • SIMPLE BLOOD TEST COULD DETECT ALL TYPES OF CANCER Researchers in the U.K. think we’re getting close to a simple blood test that can diagnose all cancers. Early results show how it can identify cancer and pre-cancerous conditions in patients with melanoma, colon cancer, and lung cancer. By helping doctors rule out certain diseases in people with symptoms, the test could save time and money while preventing the need for painful, invasive procedures like biopsies. Known as the Lymphocyte Genome Sensitivity (LGS) assay, the test looks at white blood cells called lymphocytes and the damage caused to their DNA when subjected to different intensities of ultraviolet light, which causes damage to genetic material. “White blood cells are part of the body’s natural defense system. We know that they are under stress when they are fighting cancer or other diseases, so I wondered whether anything measurable could be seen if we put them under further stress with UVA light,” Diana Anderson from the University of Bradford explains in a news release. Anderson and colleagues examined the lymphocyte responses in 208 people: 20 with melanoma, 34 with colon cancer, 4 with lung cancer, 18 with suspected melanoma, 28 with polyposis, and 10 with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and 94 healthy volunteers. The samples were coded, randomized, and then exposed to UVA light through five different depths of agar. They found a clear distinction between the damage to the white blood cells from patients with cancer, patients with pre-cancerous conditions, and healthy patients. “People with cancer have DNA which is more easily damaged by ultraviolet light than other people,” Anderson says, “so the test shows the sensitivity to damage of all the DNA -- the genome -- in a cell.” UVA damage shows up in the form of pieces of DNA pulled in an electric field towards the positive end of the field; this creates a tail like the one you’d see trailing a comet. In the LGS test, the longer the comet-like tail, the more DNA damage. The measurements correlated to those patients who were ultimately diagnosed with cancer (58), those with pre-cancerous conditions (56), and those who don’t have cancer (94). A clinical trial is currently underway to test the effectiveness of the LGS test at predicting which patients would benefit from a colonoscopy. The work was published in the FASEB Journal last week Read more at www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/s...#Er4DyxelXKlfkt3D.99
