    Ah, Butterfly- that kicks major ass. Great song.

    Another one of my Tori faves is Sister Janet.

    master shaman, i have come
    with my dolly from the shadow side
    with a demon and an englishman
    i'm my mother
    i'm my son
    nobody else is slipping the blade in easy
    nobody else is slipping the blade in the marmalade

    all the angels all the wizards, black and white
    are lighting candles in our hands
    can you feel them, yes, touching hands before our eyes
    and i can even see sweet marianne

    sister janet you have come
    from the woman clothed with the sun
    your veil is quietly becoming none
    call the wanderer he has gone
    and all those up there are making it look so easy
    with your perfect wings
    a wing can cover all sorts of things

    this again
    well i think i could try this once again

    and all the angels and all the wizards, black and white
    are lighting candles in our hands
    can you feel them, yes, touching hands before our eyes
    and i can even see sweet marianne

    Just to swing things over to the other end, I've always been a fan of Rob Zombie's lyrics (even though they don't seem to make any sense at all). "Never Gonna Stop (The Red, Red Kroovy)" is one of my favorites.

    Yeah, my durango, number 95
    Take me to the home
    Kick boots and ultra live
    See heaven flash a horrorshow
    Knock it nice and smooth
    Step back and watch it flow, yeah

    Never gonna stop me
    Never gonna stop
    Never gonna stop me
    Never gonna never gonna

    Yeah, the devil ride a dinosaur
    He paint the monster red
    So the blood don't stain the floor
    In out, real savage show
    Sorry as a shot
    Came sickness, watch it flow, yeah

    Never gonna stop me
    Never gonna stop
    Never gonna stop me
    Never gonna never gonna

    Jesus Was Way Cool
    by King Missile

    Jesus was way cool
    Everybody liked Jesus
    Everybody wanted to hang out with him
    Anything he wanted to do, he did
    He turned water into wine
    And if he wanted to
    He could have turned wheat into marijuana
    Or sugar into cocaine
    Or vitamin pills into amphetamines

    He walked on the water
    And swam on the land
    He would tell these stories
    And people would listen
    He was really cool

    If you were blind or lame
    You just went to Jesus
    And he would put his hands on you
    And you would be healed
    That's so cool

    He could've played guitar better than Hendrix
    He could've told the future
    He could've baked the most delicious cake in the world
    He could've scored more goals than Wayne Gretzky
    He could've danced better than Barishnikov
    Jesus could have been funnier than any comedian you can think of
    Jesus was way cool

    He told people to eat his body and drink his blood
    That's so cool
    Jesus was so cool
    But then some people got jealous of how cool he was
    So they killed him
    But then he rose from the dead
    He rose from the dead, danced around
    Then went up to heaven
    I mean, that's so cool
    Jesus was way cool

    No wonder there are so many Christians


    This one always reminds me of a poem I love by Charles Bukowski...

    The Factory
    by Zevon Warren

    I was born in '63
    Got a little job in the factory
    I don't know much about Kennedy
    I was too busy working in the factory
    We got a kid that's two, we got another one due
    We get by the best we can do
    The factory's got a good medical plan
    And, cousin, I'm a union man
    Saying, Yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir
    I was born in Mechanicsburg
    My Daddy worked for Pontiac 'til he got hurt
    Now he's on disability
    And I got his old job in the factory
    Saying, Yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir, yes sir, no sir
    Early in the morning I feel a chill
    The factory whistle blows loud and clear
    I'd kill my wife or she'd kill me
    But we gotta go to work at the factory
    Five days a week at the factory
    Up early in the morning at the factory
    I've been working in the factory
    Johnny, I've been working in the factory
    Kickin' asbestos in the factory
    Breathin' that plastic in the factory
    Punchin' out Chryslers in the factory
    Makin' polyvinyl chloride in the factory
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    One of Us
    (Sung by Joan Osborne; Words and Music by Eric Bazilian)

    If god had a name, what would it be?
    And would you call it to his face
    if you were faced with Him in all His glory?
    What would you ask if you had just one question?

    And yeah, yeah, God is great.
    Yeah, yeah, God is good.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    What if god was one of us,
    just a slob like one of us,
    just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home?

    If God had a face, what would it look like?
    And would you want to see
    if seeing meant that you would have to believe
    in things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints
    and all the prophets?

    And yeah, yeah, God is great.
    Yeah, yeah, God is good.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    What if god was one of us,
    just a slob like one of us,
    just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home?

    Just trying to make his way home, back up to heaven all alone.
    Nobody calling on the phone,
    'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome.

    Yeah, yeah, God is great.
    Yeah, yeah, God is good.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    What if god was one of us,
    just a slob like one of us,
    just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home,
    just trying to make his way home, just like a holy rolling stone?
    Back up to heaven all alone, just trying to make his way home.

    Nobody calling on the phone,
    'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome.

    As long as we're on the religous theme, here's a great song. It hits on a few controversial topics but is very well written.

    ~~"B.I.B.L.E." by GZA~~

    Life is a test many quest the universe
    And through my research, I felt the joy and the hurt
    The first shall be last and the last shall be first
    The Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth

    Knowledge this wisdom, this goes back when I was twelve
    I loved doing right but I was trapped in hell
    Had mad ideas, sad eyes and tears
    Years of fears, but yo my foes couldn't bear
    I searched for the truth since my youth
    And went to church since birth, but it wasn't worth the loot
    that I was paying, plus the praying
    I didn't like staying cuz of busy-bodies and dizzy hotties
    That the preacher had souped up with lies
    Had me cooped up lookin at loot, butt, and thighs
    Durin the service, he swallowed up the poor
    And after they heard this, they wallowed on the floor
    But I ignored, and explored my history that was untold
    And watched mysteries unfold
    And dropped a jewel like Solomon, but never followed men
    cause if you do your brain is more hollow than
    Space oblivia, or the abyss
    With no trace of trivia, left with the hiss
    Does it pay to be deaf, dumb and blind?
    From a slave we was kept from the mind
    And from the caves he crept from behind
    And what he gave, was the sect of the swine
    When the bible, it condemned the pig
    I don't mean to pull your hems or flip your qigs
    But we used to wear a turban, but now we're in the urban
    No more wearing beanies and dress like a genie
    No hocus pocus cause I focus on the facts
    And put it on the tracks and brought it through the wax
    I speak on Jacob, it might take up some time
    And too much knowledge, it might break up the rhyme
    I did it anyway just to wake up the mind
    of those who kiss stones or prays on the carpet
    Those who sit home, or sell books by the market
    Need to chill and get their mind revived
    For years religion did nothing but divide
    The Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth

    I strolled through the books of Job to unfold
    And open bibles, instead of hoping on revivals
    Calling on His name and screaming hallelujah
    when he hardly knew ya, that's how the devil's fooled ya
    See look into my eyes brethren, that's the lies of a Reverand
    Why should you die to go to heaven?
    The Earth is already in space, the bible I embrace
    A difficult task I had to take
    I studied till my eyes was swollen, and only arose when
    I found out that we were the chosen
    I deal with the truth, and build with the youth
    And teach my son as he kneels on the stoop
    Son, life is a pool of sin, corrupted with foolish men
    and women with wicked minds, who build picket signs
    to legalize abortion, the evil eye distortion
    I quiz Son with my wisdom
    Before I converted, I was perverted, and knowledge was asserted
    The study of wisdom, I perferred it
    The understanding, it gave me mental freedom
    I even learnt Caucasians were really the Tribe of Edam
    The white image, of Christ, is really Cesare Borgia
    and uhh, the second son of Pope Alexander
    The Sixth of Rome, and once the picture was shown
    That's how the devils tricked my dome
    I prophesized to save a man, but no one gave a damn
    for my nation - the seed of Abraham
    Blessed with the tongue of Hebrew
    Now we're strung on needles, and some are plungin evils
    So study and be wise in these days of darkness
    Peace to my nephew Marcus

    Here's a good song. It actually has some background. The singer from this band, Brand New, was best friends with the singer from another band, Taking Back Sunday. Well, the singer from Taking Back Sunday slept with the girlfriend of the singer from Brand New. Each of them wrote a song about it. This is one by Brand New...

    Seventy Times 7
    Back in school they never taught us what we needed to know,
    like how to deal with despair, or someone breaking your heat.
    For twelve years I've held it all together but a night like this is begging to pull me apart.
    I kept quiet left you deep in conversation.
    I felt uncool and hung out around the kitchen.
    I remember I kept thinking that I know you never would,
    but now I know I want to kill you like only a best friend could.

    Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
    everyones caught on to.

    As if this happening wasn't enough I got to go
    and write a song just to remind myself how bad it sucked.
    Ignore the sun, the cover's over my head.
    I wrote a message on my pillow that says, "Jesse, stay asleep in bed."
    So don't apologize. I hope you choke and die.
    Search your cell for something with which to hang yourself.
    They say you need to pray if you want to go to heaven
    but they don't tell you what to say when your whole life has gone to hell.

    Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
    Everyone's caught on to
    Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
    Everyone's caught on to
    And I can't let you, let me down again.

    So, is that what you call a getaway?
    Tell me what you got away with.
    Cause I've seen more spine on jellyfish.
    and I've seen more guts on eleven-year-old kids.
    Have another drink and drive yourself home.
    I hope there's ice on all the roads.
    And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
    and again when your head goes through the windshield.

    And is that what you call tact?
    You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back.
    So let's end this call, and end this conversation.
    and is that what you call a getaway?
    well tell me what you got away with.
    cause you left the phrase from the ties you severed when you say best friends mean friends forever

    So, is that what you call a getaway?
    Tell me what you got away with.
    Cause I've seen more spine on jellyfish.
    and I've seen more guts on eleven-year-old kids.
    Have another drink and drive yourself home.
    I hope there's ice on all the roads.
    And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
    and again when your head goes through the windshield.

    Everyones caught on to everything you do
    Everyones caught on to.
    And everyones caught on to everything you do
    Everyones caught on to.

    Oh my! Those are quite some lyrics. Are you going to post the other song too? Wow. I'd be curious to see it.
