  • Siouxsie and the Banshees – Israel (Album Version)

    Little orphans in the snow
    With nowhere to call a home
    Start their singing
    Waiting through the summertime
    To thaw your hearts in wintertime
    That’s why they’re singing

    Waiting for a sign to turn blood into wine
    The sweet taste in your mouth — turned bitter in its glass
    Israel… in Israel
    Israel… in Israel

    Shattered fragments of the past
    Meet in veins on the stained glass
    Like the lifeline in your palm
    Red and green reflects the scene
    Of a long forgotten dream
    There were princes and there were kings

    Now hidden in disguise — cheap wrappings of lies
    Keep your heart alive with a song from inside

    Even though we’re all alone
    We are never on our own when we’re singing

    There’s a man who’s looking in
    And he smiles a toothless grin
    Because he’s singing
    See some people shine with glee
    But their song is jealousy
    Their hate is clanging — maddening
    In Israel… will they sing Happy Noel
    Israel… in Israel
    Israel… in Israel
    In Israel will they sing Happy Noel

    [Verse 1]
    Judas:
    Mm, everytime I look at you
    I don’t understand
    Why you let the things you did
    Get so out of hand
    You’d have managed better
    If you’d had it planned
    Now why’d you choose such a backwards time
    And such and strange land

    [Verse 2]
    If you’d come today
    You could have reached a whole nation
    Israel in 4 BC
    Had no mass communication

    [Pre-Chorus]
    (Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
    (Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong
    (Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
    (Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong

    (Only want to know) Only want to know
    (Only want to know, now) Only want to know
    (Only want to know) Only want to know
    (Only want to know, now) I only want to know

    [Verse 3]
    Judas:
    Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
    Now who’d you think, besides yourself
    Was the pick of the crop?
    Buddha was he where it’s at?
    Is he where you are?
    Could Mohammed move a mountain or was that just PR?
    Did you mean to die like that
    Was that a mistake or
    Did you know your messy death would be a record breaker?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    (Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
    (Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong

  • Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Judas’ Death lyrics

    Judas:
    My God, I saw him
    He looked three-quarters dead
    And he was so bad
    I had to turn my head
    You beat him so hard
    That he was bent and lame
    And I know who everybody’s
    Going to blame
    I don’t believe he knows
    I acted for our good
    I’d save him all the suffering
    If I could
    Don’t believe our good
    Save him if I could

    Annas:
    Cut the confessions
    Forget the excuses
    I don’t understand why
    You’re filled with remorse
    All that you’ve said
    Has come true with a vengeance
    The mob has turned against him
    You’ve backed the right horse

    Caiaphas:
    What you have done
    Will be the saving of Israel
    You’ll be remembered forever for this
    And not only that
    You’ve been paid for your efforts
    Pretty good wages
    For one little kiss

    Judas:
    Christ!
    I know you can’t hear me
    But I only did what you wanted me to
    Christ!
    I’d sell out the nation
    For I have been saddled
    With the murder of you
    I have been spattered
    With innocent blood
    I should be dragged
    Through the slime and the mud
    I have been spattered
    With innocent blood
    I should be dragged
    Through the slime and the slime and the slime and the mud

    I don’t know how to love him
    I don’t know why he moves me
    He’s a man
    He’s just a man
    He’s not a King
    He’s just the same
    As anyone I know
    He scares me so
    When he’s cold and dead
    Will he let me be?
    Does he love?
    Does he love me too?
    Does he care for me?
    Oh, God

    My mind is in darkness now
    Oh my God I am sick
    I’ve been used
    And you knew
    All the time
    God I’ll never know
    Why you chose me for your crime
    Your foul bloody crime
    You, you have murdered me
    You have murdered me
    Murdered me
    Murdered me
    Murdered me

  • Tyler Joseph – O Come, O Come Emmanuel Lyrics

    [Intro: David McCreary]
    Coming to the stage now
    Is our new singer, first time on television, though you’ve probably heard of him
    He is the president of the [?] day fan club
    Actually I hear that Sinatra has a restraining order against him
    Please, help me welcome him to the stage, Tyler Joseph

    [Tyler Joseph]
    Oh no, no

    [Verse 1]
    O come, O come, Emmanuel
    And ransom captive Israel
    That mourns in lonely exile here
    Until the Son of God appears
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel

    No, no
    Oh no

    [Verse 2]
    O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
    Our spirits by Thine advent here
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
    And death’s dark shadows put to flight
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel

    Oh no, no, no
    Oh no, no, no, no, no

    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel

    [Outro: David McCreary & Tyler Joseph]
    Tyler Jefferson everybody, round of applause
    Wow, that was dark

    Thank you, so Merry Christmas Tyler
    Get off the stage
    Ma, I’m tryna

  • B.o.B – Mercy Me (Elements Album)

    [Verse 1: B.o.B]
    Yo, I don’t care who listening
    I find it kind of sickening
    We send billions to Israel
    But shit on Flint, Michigan
    A country founded off of immigrants
    Now we want to build a wall to keep out all the immigrants
    What you witnessing
    Military exercises demonstrated on citizens
    Anti-war petitioning
    Drone strike incoming
    Homeless vets decorate the street, can’t get no income in
    How do you save a world that can’t be saved?
    How do you raise a child that won’t behave? (Preach)
    Waking up from the lies, I feel betrayed
    I’m guessing the rabbit hole we dug was actually just a grave
    Skeletons in the closet, they fossilized
    Niggas want the truth sugar coated and carmelized
    Life is like a science fiction book where the author dies
    Well I ain’t dead yet cuz the hit hadn’t been authorized

    [Chorus]
    I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
    Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
    Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
    And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
    I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
    I will survive, I walk alone
    Look in my eye
    So give me justice, give me peace
    Or give my freedom back at least
    So we can meet up in the street, you decide

    [Verse 2: B.o.B]
    Who you bow to?
    Elected councils, full of scoundrels
    Who now rule, the world around you
    While wearing houseshoes
    They clown you
    You wear your house, or your whole house full
    Regimes don’t die; they change they name and the accounts move
    Life goes on with or without you
    Words fall on deaf ears, I think they soundproof
    The sound of justice makes us cringe
    But how can we stand the sound?
    You can’t even stand your ground
    A noose around your neck, the sharpest minds will cut them down
    Caught inside the web, the internet is tightly wound
    Every day a hundred k feel more like a couple thou’
    What’s a dollar to a pound?
    What’s a pound to the crown?
    Look, ay
    I’m sick of waiting, man this flag i’m sick of waving
    No more participating
    Time to form our own nation
    You call it integration, I call that discrimination
    They say it’s risk i’m taking
    I call it decision making

    [Chorus]
    I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
    Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
    Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
    And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
    I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
    I will survive, I walk alone
    Look in my eye
    So give me justice, give me peace
    Or give my freedom back at least
    So we can meet up in the street, you decide

    [Verse 3: B.o.B]
    You not an activist, you’re more like a re-activist
    False flags, crisis actors trying to re-enact some shit
    Stories don’t match, I never believe half the shit
    While they’re sneaking pass a law we’re easily distracted, ay
    Trying to get through to these dense fucks
    You’re too stupid to insult
    I say the shit anybody can prove
    I don’t know, guess if it rhymes it’s got to be true
    Look, cheap tricks and fabricated speeches
    Blonde hair, blue eyes – they even fabricated Jesus
    Just look at the salary paid to teachers
    It’s obvious they don’t want us to graduate into leaders
    Clearly, in court videos don’t prove much
    Why is news cameras in the courtroom, huh?
    Even if it’s just a game, I hear the signal louder
    I think I got the message, they don’t really care about us

    [Chorus]
    I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
    Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
    Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
    And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
    I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
    I will survive, I walk alone
    Look in my eye
    So give me justice, give me peace
    Or give my freedom back at least
    So we can meet up in the street, you decide

    [fade to interlude]
    Oohh, oohh, ooh[x4]

  • Tim Rice – Close Every Door To Me (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics

    Close every door to me
    Hide all the world from me
    Bar all the windows
    And shut out the light
    Do what you want with me
    Hate me and laugh at me
    Darken my daytime
    And torture my night
    If my life were important I
    Would ask will I live or die
    But I know the answers
    Lie far from this world

    Close every door to me
    Keep those I love from me
    Children of Israel are never alone
    For I know I shall find
    My own peace of mind
    For I have been promised
    A land of my own

    (Choir)
    Close every door to me
    Hide All the world from me
    Bar all the windows
    And shut out the light

    La la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la

    (Joseph)
    Just give me a number
    Instead of my name
    Forget all about me
    And let me decay

    I do not matter
    I’m only one person
    Destroy me completely
    Then throw me away
    If my life were important I
    Would ask will I live or die
    But I know the answers
    Lie far from this world

    Close every door to me
    Keep those I love from me
    Children of Israel
    Are never alone
    For we know we shall find
    Our own piece of mind
    For we have been promised
    A land of our own
