Alright, people. We've had this with the second mixtape so why not have another thread for the lyrics?
I'll start:



The Ricetigers - Bed Religion
I heard a gentle voice. It appeared to reign on earth
The inviting facility appealed to me at first
Then it whispered quietly "It's just a little lie"
But in the end it left me unperturbed

Bed religion - Inartificial spells
Subconscious manipulation in your little head
Bed religion - Ruthless control
Rage and disorder in your helpless cranium

The masses are obsessive and obey the modern god
Placarded in the media so everyone is taught
Positioned as the figurehead of their phony way of life
Unprincipled and idiotic people follow the hype

Bed religion - Inartificial spells
Subconscious manipulation in your little head
Bed religion - Ruthless control
Rage and disorder in your helpless cranium

Yes! I'm so glad I didn't submit Out of Sight. I'm so not proud of those lyrics. :D



O.L.E.

I sat along the sandy banks of Tuscaloo.
Those rippling waves just left me wonderin’ what to do.
When desperation came and hit me on the head,
Before I knew it I was on my way to you. Yeah, I was off.

I swam for miles and miles and miles and miles it seemed.
The farther along I got, the more it felt a dream.
Face down, staring at that lonesome ocean floor,
I could no longer ignore that you’re not mine anymore.

Chorus:

Oh, Ellie, Ellie, where’d you go?
I’m losing time and I’ve got no place left to go.
Oh, Ellie, Ellie, don’t you know
You said goodbye, but you’ll say hello again.
Oh, Ellie, Ellie, why’d you go?
This water’s cold and I am freezing head to toe.
Surely, but slow, I’ll find my way to you.


I may not be the smartest man you’ll ever see,
but I do know one thing: without you, there is no me.
So I’m on my way to show you we were meant to be,
and come hell or high water, my plan will be complete. Yes, indeed.

I may be the latest casualty, I cannot lie.
On this briny highway, good intentions come to die
without your air to breathe, I can’t survive, I know,
but as long as I’m thinking of you, it’s a hell of a way to go.



Going Down

It fell like a ton of bricks on us,
building walls around our eyes.
Our obscure figures dance away in the night
and (but) it’s alright.


Fleeting light just skims the corners of our
darkest fears and makes them known.
Though we move as one in this ballet of ecstasy,
we’re all alone.

We sing our song.
We carry on as if everything’s just fine now…


Chorus:

We’re going down, we’re going down today.
We’re going down, we’re going down, hey hey!
We’re going down, we’re going down today.
And I don’t think that we’ve noticed.

We’re going down, we’re going down today.
We’re going down, we’re going down, hey hey!
We’re going down, we’re going down today.
But I don’t think that it matters.


We plod along like a horse in the mud,
sinking more with e-ve-ry step.
This widespread mire will devour us all until
there’s nothing left.

Oh yeah, well here they are. :)


Off We Go

Welcome to my dreams
Hope you enjoy your stay
I've been permanently stationed here for a while now
But I'll be leaving soon

I'm not getting kicked out, no
Much better reasons than that
In fact, I'm leaving here cause my dreams
They're becoming reality

So here I go
Flying away from all I know
People they ask when I'll be back
I promise to figure that out for you
And I'm not sayin'
Anything to sleight this place
But this future's where I'm goin'
And it might be where I'm stayin'

I felt so alone
"Why can't I be grateful for what I have?"
Then I looked around me, and to my surprise
My friends were everywhere

No one's staying put
What is it with this place?
We're all fleeing, flying, floating away from...
Home? But home is what we seek.

Away we go
Much like I did two years ago
The world uproots before your eyes
While a part of each of us dies
We're reborn and so alive
And we're not sayin'
That we're never comin' back
But these magnetic fields are far too strong
And now it's time to sing along

Leave now, we're gonna get out of here
Strong now, my faith goes and reappears
Stay in my heart
Destroy, no part of yesterday
Decoy, my time here is done
At least for now...

Here are mine:


Head over heels I've fit in before
Now I don't wanna do it no more
I've held it all in with blood on my face
Built it up man so bad you can taste

I don't slag no one
I don't even judge
Don't give a shit 'cause I'm not gonna budge
I just want to be who I want to be
Guess that's hard for others to see

I'm not a trendy asshole
I do what I want
I do what I feel like
I'm not a trendy asshole
Don't give a fuck
If it's good enough for you
'Cause I am alive

Smash is the way you feel all alone
Like an outcast you're out on your own
Smash is the way you deal with your life
Like an outcast you're smashing your strife

Head over heels I've fit in before
Now I don't want to do it no more
I just want to be who I want to be
Guess that's hard for others to see

EDIT: Oh, right...



Honeysuckle

There's no communication in this house;
Rocks are cheap, but bricks are hard to skip with.
We're like animals, proud of establishment,
So we puff our chests out for instinct, culture, and habit.

Don't think for a second that I'll let my guard down (tactics? ha!)
There's passive and aggressive: I won't speak from starving mouths,
But I'll scratch my stomach and laugh -- shout from the top of the stairs
Which I had climbed moments ago,
That everything is perfect, as perfect as can be,
Except for me, I don't know what I've done wrong, it's impossible to read
In the dark and I was never given lectures I was lost without comfort
Can't you figure out yourself why its hard to see trees
Crying the leaves act like the second hand
In culdesac given ups, settled downs, it's too late to start now

Tell me I won't crash this life ha ha ha
Am I happy? No.
Am I Settled? Yes.

I always wanted to make something with my hands,
He says create windstorms with violins --
He thinks hes contributing to ignoring warnings
And charging everyone one for each branch that he chews off
What little bit grows, still he'd like to feel it pulling back
Painfully, when the honeysuckle lies to me and yells,
"This is happiness -- chloroform but sweeter,
So drink up, old man, you don't want to know
How much time you've already spent sleeping."

Tell me I won't crash this life ha ha ha ha,
Am I happy? No.
Am I settled? Yes.

And all the while I was sailing away from here...
All the while, I was sailing away.

Well, hot damn! I didn't write these, but my bassist did:


Standing Tall

The games are played, wrong choices are made,
And it goes to show from day to day
When the people go about their ways
Wreaking havoc, they don't hesitate

You look overseas for wealth
While your country destroys itself
And I can't stand and watch this country fall

I'm Standing Tall!
I Will Not Fall!
Won't Take Me Down!
I Stand My Ground!

Your digging in foreign sands
While your country digs through garbage cans
Gangs and drugs are raiding your streets
But you only care if your oil depletes

Another school shooting occurs
You try to find any detours
To avoid the fact, and get back to your war

I'm Standing Tall!
I Will Not Fall!
Won't Take Me Down!
I Stand My Ground!

I will show the world
Yes, I will show them all
'Cause I'm standing tall

And of course,
