Lyrics that Make you think Promethean

Recommended Posts

Curator

In this hole

That is me

The dead are rolling over

In this hole

Thickening

Dirt shoveled over shoulders

I feel it in me

So overwhelmed

Oh, this pressured center rising

My life overturned

Unfair the despair

All these scars keep ripping open

Peel me from the skin

Tear me from the rind

Does it make you happy now?

Tear meat from the bone

Tear me from myself

Are you feeling happy now?

In this hole

That is me

A life that's growing feeble

In this hole

So limiting

The sun has set; all darkens

Buried underneath

Hands slip off the wheel

Internal path-way to contention

Peel me from the skin

Tear me from the rind

Does it make you happy now?

Tear meat from the bone

Tear me from myself

Are you feeling happy now?

Are you

HAPPY?

Are you

HAPPY?

Are you feeling happy?

In this hole

That is me

Left with a heart exhausted

What's my release??

What sets me free?

Do you pull me up just to push me down again?

Peel me from the skin

Tear me from the rind

Does it make you happy now?

Tear meat from the bone

Tear me from myself

Are you feeling happy?

Peel me from the skiiiiiiiiiin

Peel me from the skiiiiiiiiiin

Tear me from the rind

Does it make you happy now?

Tear me from the boooooooooone

Tear me from the boooooooooone

Tear me from myself

Are you feeling happy?

Does it make you happy?

Are you feeling happy?

Are you fucking happy?

Now that I'm lost left with nothing

Does it make you happy?

Are you feeling happy?

Are you fucking happy?

Now that I'm lost left with nothing

Linkin Park-New Divide

I remembered black skies, the lightning all around me

I remembered each flash as time began to blur

Like a startling sign that fate had finally found me

And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean

Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes

Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between

Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies across this new divide

There was nothing in sight but memories left abandoned

There was nowhere to hide, the ashes fell like snow

And the ground caved in between where we were standing

And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve

[- From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/l/linkin-park-lyrics/new-divide-lyrics.html -]

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean

Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes across this new divide

In every loss, in every lie, in every truth that you'd deny

And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide

And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean

Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes

Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between

Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies across this new divide

Across this new divide, across this new divide

This song reminds me of a prometheans life from creation to pilgrimage to the new dawn

Have to Drive- Amanda Palmer

I have to drive

I have my reasons, dear

It's cold outside

I hate the seasons here

I suffer mornings most of all

I feel so powerless and small

By ten o'clock I'm back in bed

Fighting the jury in my head

We learn to drive

It's only natural, deer

We drive all night

We haven't slept in years

We suffer mornings most of all

We saw you lying in the road

We tried to dig a decent grave

But it's still no way to behave

It is a delicate position

Spin the bottle

Pick the victim

Catch a tiger

Switch directions

If he hollers

Break his ankles

To protect him

We'll have to drive

They're getting closer

Just get inside

It's almost over

We will save your brothers

We will save your cousins

We will drive them far away

From streets and lights

From all signs of bad mankind

We suffer mornings most of all

Wake up all bleary eyed and sore

Forgetting everything we saw

I'll meet you in an hour at the car

Time: The Beginning Lyrics

Send "Time: The Beginning" Ringtones to Cell

[Dave Mustaine/Marty Friedman]

Father time, I'm running late

I'm winding down, I'm growing tired

Seconds drift into the night

The clock just ticks till my time expires

You were once my friend

Now I know I can't tie your hands

The days I saved I couldn't spend

They fell like sand through the hourglass

No time to lose, no time to choose

Time taking time, it's taken mine

Scenes of my life seem so unkind

Time chasing time creeps up behind

I can't run forever, and time waits for no one

Not even me

An enemy I can't defend

My final place a deadly end

Life's just a speck in space

Dreams of an eternal resting place

I can't get any younger

Time has brutal hunger

Edguy - Pride Of Creation

I can't figure the Lord down in funeral gravity

One finishing touch and the creature is coming alive

As I kneel down and pray

I know God is watching over me

Is He pissing himself

When He's knocking me out of my stride

And on day number eight

When the sun is about to go down

Were we go, what a show

What a nose for blow

[Chorus:]

You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aardvark

You're divine by the grace of the master above

You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aarkvard

You're divine by the grace of the master above

Hey Frankenstein are you the one I think you are

Godfather If we're divine you are bizarre

I hear you laughing from the loge above

At my expense for your entertainment

Hey Lord above why don't your armies ever smile

Godfather why don't the ever dress in style

And never share the humor that you surely have

Creating me for your entertainment

Why do they have to get married

Before they do what they do

Everyday anyway, when there's hell to pay

[Chorus]

We fold our hands afraid of what we've done

Fear is the key to you - thy kingdom come

You shake your head and have another wine

Don't you almost die laughing wondering why

Running in the dust, running in the dust

Afraid of the hail stones cold as ice

Running in the dust, running in the dust

Straight to the wastelands

We'll never read your signs

[Chorus:]

You're alive, oh you're alive

You're alive, the pride of creation

Oh you're the pride of creation, yes you are

Oh you're the pride of creation

[Music & Lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

I can't figure the Lord down in funeral gravity

One finishing touch and the creature is coming alive

As I kneel down and pray

I know God is watching over me

Is He pissing himself

When He's knocking me out of my stride

And on day number eight

When the sun is about to go down

Were we go, what a show

What a nose for blow

[Chorus:]

You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aardvark

You're divine by the grace of the master above

You're alive said the maker and smiled to the aarkvard

You're divine by the grace of the master above

Hey Frankenstein are you the one I think you are

I hear you laughing from the loge above

At my expense for your entertainment

Hey Lord above why don't your armies ever smile

Godfather why don't the ever dress in style

And never share the humor that you surely have

Metallica: The Day That Never Comes Lyrics

Songwriters: Kirk Hammett;Robert Trujillo;Lars Ulrich;James Hetfield

Send "The Day That Never Comes" Ringtone to your Cell

Born to push you around

You better just stay down

You pull away, he hits the flesh

You hit the ground

Mouths so full of lies

Tend to black your eyes

Just keep them closed

Keep praying, just keep waiting

Waiting for the one

The day that never comes

When you stand up and feel the warmth

But the sunshine never comes, no

No, the sunshine never comes

Push you cross that line

Just stay down this time

Hiding yourself, crawling yourself

You'll have your time

God, I'll make them pay

Take it back one day

I'll end this day

I'll splatter color on this grave

Waiting for the one

The day that never comes

When you stand up and feel the warmth

But the sunshine never comes

Love is a four letter word

And never spoken here

Love is a four letter word

Here in this prison

I suffer this no longer

I'll put it into this I swear

This I swear the sun will shine

This I swear, this I swear

This I swear!

How could he know this new dawn's light

Would change his life forever?

Set sail to sea but pulled off course

By the light of golden treasure

Was he the one causing pain

With his careless dreaming?

Been afraid

Always afraid

Of the things he's feeling

He could just be gone

He would just sail on

He'll just sail on

How can I be lost

If I've got nowhere to go?

Searched the seas of gold

How come it's got so cold?

How can I be lost

In remembrance I relive

How can I blame you

When it's me I can't forgive?

These days drift on inside a fog

It's thick and suffocating

This seeking life outside its hell

Inside intoxicating

He's run aground

Like his life

Water's much too shallow

Slipping fast

Down with the ship

Fading in the shadows now

A castaway

They've

All gone

Away

They've gone away

How can I be lost

If I've got nowhere to go?

Search for seas of gold

How come it's got so cold?

How can I be lost

In remembrance I relive

And how can I blame you

When it's me I can't forgive?

Forgive me

Forgive me not

Forgive me

Forgive me not

Forgive me

Forgive me not

Forgive me

Forgive me, why can't I forgive me?

Set sail to sea but pulled off course

By the light of golden treasure

How could he know this new dawn's light

Would change his life forever

How can I be lost

If I've got nowhere to go?

Search for seas of gold

How come it's got so cold?

How can I be lost

In remembrance I relive

So how can I blame you

When it's me I can't forgive?

Mama, they try and break me.

The window burns to light the way back home

A light that warms no matter where they've gone.

They're off to find the hero of the day

But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way?

Still the window burns, time so slowly turns

Someone there is sighing

Keepers of the flames

Do you feel your names?

Do you hear your babies crying?

Mama they try and break me

Still they try and break me

'Scuse me while I tend to how I feel

These things return to me that still seem real

Now deservingly this easy chair

But the rocking stops by wheels of despair

Don't want your aid

But the fist I've made for years won't hold or feel

No I'm not all me

So please excuse me while I tend to how I fell

But now the dreams and waking screams that ever last through the night (echoed between James and Jason)

So build the wall behind it crawl and hide until it's light

Can you hear your babies crying now?

Still the window burns

Time so slowly turns

And someone there is sighing

Keepers of the flames, can't you feel your names?

Can't you hear your babies crying?

But now the dreams and waking screams that

ever last the night

So build a wall behind it crawl

And hide until it's light

So can't you hear your babies crying now?

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try mama they try

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try and break me

Mama they try Mama they try

Pantera Floods

Title: Pantera - Floods lyrics

Artist: Pantera Lyrics

Visitors: 13186 visitors have hited Floods Lyrics since June 03, 2010.

A dead issue, don't wrestle with it, deaf ears are sleeping

A guilty bliss, so inviting (let me in), nailed to the cross

I feel you, relate to you, accuse you

Wash away us all, take us with the floods

Then throughout the night, they were raped and executed

Cold hearted world

Your language unheard of, the vast sound of tuning out

The rash of negativity is seen one sidedly, burn away the day

The nervous, the drifting, the heaving

Wash away us all, take us with the floods

Then throughout the day mankind played with grenades

Cold hearted world

And at night they might bait the pentagram

Extinguishing the sun

Wash away man, take him with the floods

Probably not something most gamers have listened to, but I think the song, "Long Black Veil," particularly the version by John Anderson and Merle Haggard, best sum up the loneliness, loss and death that eats at the heart of every Promethean.

Ten years ago on a cold dark night

a man was killed neath the town hall light

They were few at the scene

but they all did agree

the man who ran looked a lot like me

The judge said 'son,

what is your alibi

if you where somewhere else

then you won't have to die'

I spoke not a word

though it meant my life

I'd been in the arms of my best friends wife

She walks these hills in a long black veil

and visits my grave when the night wind wails

and nobody knows

and nobody sees and

nobody knows

but me

The scaffold is high and eternity's near

she stood in the crowd and shed not a tear

But sometimes at night when the cold winds blow

in a long black veil Lord she cries over my bones

And she walks these hills in a long black veil

and visits my grave where the night wind wail

and nobody knows Lord

and nobody sees

nobody knows but me

Lord nobody knows Lord

and nobody sees

nobody knows but me

Probly a bit to cheerful, and probly taking it to literally but I think this song fits.

Be Ok- Ingrid Michaelson

I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok

I just want to be ok today

I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok

I just want to be ok today

I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today

I just want to feel something today

I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today

I just want to feel something today

CHORUS:

Open me up and you will see

I'm a gallery of broken hearts

I'm beyond repair, let me be

And give me back my broken parts

I just want to know today, know today, know today

I just want to know something today

I just want to know today, know today, know today

Know that maybe I will be ok

CHORUS

Just give me back my pieces

Just give them back to me please

Just give me back my pieces

And let me hold my broken parts

I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok

I just want to be ok today

I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok

I just want to be ok today

I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today

I just want to feel something today

I just want to know today, know today, know today

Know that maybe I will be ok

Know that maybe I will be ok

Know that maybe I will be ok

Not really lyrics, but this reminded me of Promethean so much, especially particular words that are, in-game, character traits and statistics:

"His own face was in shadow, and he wore a wide-brimmed hat which somehow blended perfectly with the out-of-date cloak he affected; but I was subtly disquieted even before he addressed me. His form was very slight; thin almost to cadaverousness; and his voice proved phenomenally soft and hollow, though not particularly deep. He had, he said, noticed me several times at my wanderings; and he inferred that I resembled him in loving the vestiges of former years...

...As he spoke, I caught a glimpse of his face in the yellow beam from a solitary attic window. It was a noble, even a handsome, elderly countenance; and bore marks of a lineage and refinement unusual for the age and place. Yet some quality about it distrubed me almost as much as its features pleased me-perhaps it was too white, or too expressionless, or too much out of keeping with the locality, to make me feel easy or comfortable. Nevertheless I followed him; for in those dreary days my quest for antique beauty and mystery was all I had to keep my soul alive, and I reckoned it a rare favor of Fate to fall in with one whose kindred seekings seemed to have penetrated so much further than mine."

-H.P.Lovecraft, "He" (first published in 1926)

"World So Cold"

When passion's lost and all the trust is gone,

Way too far, for way too long

Children crying, cast out and neglected,

Only in a world so cold, only in a world

This cold

Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes

Then watch them drift away

Some might say, we've done the wrong things,

For way too long, for way too long

Fever inside the storm,

So I'm turning away.

Away from the name

(Calling your names)

Away from the stones

(Throw sticks and stones)

'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns

'Cause I'm running away,

Away from the games

(Fucking head games)

Away from the space

(Hate this head space)

The circumstances of a world so cold

burning whispers, Remind me of the days,

I was left alone, in a world this cold

Guilty of the same things, provoked by

The cause,

I've left alone, in a world so cold

Fever inside the storm,

So I'm turning away.

Away from the name

(Calling your names)

Away from the stones

(Throw sticks and stones)

'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns

'Cause I'm running away,

Away from the games

(Fucking head games)

Away from the space

(Hate this head space)

The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,

Away from the names

(Calling your names)

Away from the games

(Fucking head games)

The circumstances of a world so cold

Why does everyone feel like my enemy,

Don't want any part of depression or

Darkness, I've had enough

sick and tired, bring the sun, or I'm gone,

Or I'm gone

I'm backing out, I'm no pawn,

No mother-fucking slave to this,

Never lied

Never left

Never lived

Never loved

Never lost

Never hurt

Never worry about being me, or anyone else

Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about

Anything

Backing out, giving up, no mother-fucking

Slave to this,

Never lied

Never left

Never lived

Never loved

Never lost

Never hurt

Never worry about being me, or anyone else

Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about

Anything,

I need to find a darkened corner,

A lightless corner,

Where it's safer and calmer,

I'm turning away.

Away from the name

(Calling your names)

Away from the stones

(Throw sticks and stones)

'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

I'm running away,

Away from the games

(Fucking head games)

Away from the space

(Hate this head space)

The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,

Away from the names

(Calling your names)

Away from the games

(Fucking head games)

The circumstances of a world so cold

Arcade Fire "My Body Is A Cage"

My body is a cage that keeps me

From dancing with the one I love

But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage that keeps me

From dancing with the one I love

But my mind holds the key

I'm standing on a stage

Of fear and self-doubt

It's a hollow play

But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage that keeps me

From dancing with the one I love

But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me

My mind holds the key

I'm living in an age

That calls darkness light

Though my language is dead

Still the shapes fill my head

I'm living in an age

Whose name I don't know

Though the fear keeps me moving

Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage that keeps me

From dancing with the one I love

But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me

My mind holds the key

My body is a

My body is a cage

We take what we're given

Just because you've forgotten

That don't mean you're forgiven

I'm living in an age

That screams my name at night

But when I get to the doorway

There's no one in sight

I'm living in an age

That laughs

When I'm dancing

With the one I love

But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me

My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free

Set my spirit free

Set my body free

Set my body free

Set my spirit free

Set my body free
