Stay Alive

Listen up, child, theres one thing Ive got to make clear
Yeah, I do
You dont see it coming
Hear it coming
Acting like you know nothing
About that strange rumor going on around here
Take me back to the land of the living
Take me down where the sun do shine
Take me back, things be different
You get it, got it, ooooh, you better get it now
Chorus:
Stay alive, let your soul rise up from the bottom
Stay alive, dont let it take you down for the very last time
Stay alive, it dont do you no good looking up from the bottom
Stay alive, dont let it take you down for the very last time
You talk about lies and pain
It dont do you no good with your face in the cocaine
Love, hate, watch that mother
Shell bring you down like no other Ive seen
If you know what I mean
Take me back, got to face that demon
Take me down, dont play its fool
Take me back, things be different
You get it, got it, ooooh, you better get it now
Chorus
No, I aint seen nothin
No, I aint seen nothin
No, I aint seen nothin like you before
Repeat chorus

To Jyothi Basu – A Loving Tribute: The ‘Lamp’ is dead: Its light will always stay!

The ‘Lamp’ that lit the homes of myriad souls,
Who toiled, tilled, slogged as Indians proud, galore,
And stayed as guiding light achieving goals,
Has lost its oil and wick, and burns no more!

It stood as beacon for numerous souls,
Who flocked to him for wisdom that they sought,
And always got much more than they had thought;
The Lamp is gone but light it shone will stay!

The doyen worked his way uphill in life;
He stood beside all workers in their strife;
He was a perfect man, so rarely found,
He could have become mountain but stayed mound!

‘Hats off’ to leaders great who simple stay,
And lead unselfishly for others, way;
Who hold on party-men a trance-like sway,
Who lived for good principles every day!

The Lamp had burned for others sake for long;
Its light remains in hearts of myriad souls;
His glorious work will stay alive by song;
The man of mettle, heart of steel hadn’t holes!

No wonder, leaders praise him all sky-high!
His honest national service cannot die;
He left too big a void to be filled nigh;
His love for India is too great to vie!

‘God grant his soul eternal rest’, we pray!
May others follow his footsteps and way;
‘His example was golden’, people say;
He shines in hearts of many souls each day!
The ‘lamp’ is dead: Its light will always stay!

Dedicated in loving memory of the demised soul!

Stay Alive

We may stay alive
Think twice and relive
With all kind of illusions
And find no solutions

Yet it is life with difference
No simple try to draw inference
We may think endlessly with desperate try
Nights to be used only for feeling shy

We will not see helplessly at sky
It is worth to think and try
Nothing comes that easily
No one gets it even readily

Everyone does his duty
That is real beauty
No one thinks of next moment
It is something like unique movement

We are here to perform
Not to fear from dark clouds or storm
They may come and go as they are meant
It must not cow us down or make bent

We have sun rise and sunset
It makes its presence known and let
That you rise and set in right time
No one may have any complaint any time

River waters may flow and rush
Suppress the belt and on the way crush
Calm down after fulfillment of wish
And show calm face when it is totally finished

We have to live with same world and its environment
Not to cut sorry figure and discourageouly comment
Rise to the occasion and come out with flying colors
What can be worse even if you have to die with honors?

No one has remembered any one so far?
On statues erected to be remembered for war?
Rest all remain same as world moves on
We need worry and live with face completely frown

World will not end or stop
Even if you cry at the roof top
No one will shed tears at your flow show
You got come out of it and simply grow

So mista funkmaster pump the bee-gees
And all you college students bring your ouijas? check the spellin, r e--f u g e--e get the cd from sam goody he he

Hopin that the game treat that ass a little kinda
Every step tangod

My crews slang flow worldwide like a current
Wit da every spot where nobody get insurance
Brotha do the math you aint half near exotic
My mans claim true - you - forget about it
Pope hoe just a new stance like my influence
Well recognize you a lie tryin do it
Got juice told your lady oops

Smooth and charizmatic automatic

We strive to teach the youth baby and stay alive

But it aint in my plan to make move without the fam

Stay and enjoy

By hard work you walk and reach.
By smart work you drive and reach.
By trick work you fly and reach.
By mild work you stay and enjoy.

Monica Bellucci

After a while in marriage, it doesn't work anymore. There is something missing, there is something wrong. There are few marriages that stay alive forever. We like something, and after a while, we hate what we used to love.

Team Work

A loud drunk was at a bar,
speaking about one thing or another,
all of a sudden he yells out,
If you need to something, do it yourself,
that is how our country works,
I turn to my friends as we all look at each other,
pick the guy up and tossed him out,
also we tell him don't come back,
in our country it is called team work,
so stay out of our country.

Come Ye

Nina simone
Come ye ye who would have peace
Hear me what I say now
I say come ye ye who would have peace
Its time to learn how to pray
I say come ye ye who have no fear
What tomorrow brings child
Start praying for a better world
Or peace and all good things
I say come ye ye who still have hope
That we can still survive now
Lets work together as we should
And fight to stay alive
I say come ye ye who would have love
Its time to take a stand
Dont mind abuse it must be paid
For the love of your fellow man
I say come ye come ye
Who would have hope
Who would have hope
Who would have hope
Who would have hope

Never Fails

I hate not being with you,
It hurts me 24/7,
Even when people try to keep my mind off of you,
It just never seems to work,
You're all I think about,
In my Heart and Mind,
You're everything in my life,
You keep me breathing,
Keep my Heart beating,
Keep my soul sane,
And help my brain stay alive,
I've changed so much since the day you asked me out,
I've learned things about myself that I never knew before,
From the good to the bad,
Everyday with you is a new experience for me,
And I always learn something new about you along with myself,
I'm starting to really get strong feelings for you,
I can't control it even if I wanted to,
It's getting very painful and I'm so scared,
But I'm hoping for a wonderful future with you...
Forever.

Satisfied

We work our bodies weary to stay alive
There must be more to livin than nine to five
Why should we wait for some better time
There may not even be a tomorrow
Aint no sense in losing your mind
Im gonna make it worth the ride
Chorus
Dont you know, I wont give up until
Im satisfied
Dont you know, why should I stop until
Im satisfied
Ignore the hesitation, that ties your hands
Use your imagination, and take a chance
I wont let my moment of thuth pass me by
Ive gotta make my move now or never
And if they turn mr loose on this town
Theyre gonna have to hold me down
Chorus
Oh, dont you know, aint gonna stop until
Were satisfied
Dont you know, we shouldnt stop until
Were satisfied
Dont you know, aint gonna stop until
Im satisfied
Dont you know, we wont give up until
Were satisfied

A Magical Surprise

Waking up with the first sunrise
Dreams roll on, land on my eyes
I stay alive coz without them
I would've long given up the game.
The day surely has enough in store
More than just a daily routine chore
It's up to me to go get them
If I fail there's none else to blame.
You may ask, 'What's there in a day,
other than work and a little play? '
Surely you're joking there's a lot more to it,
Enough to give you a jolt miss your heartbeat.
Rabbit out of hat, the day's magic show
Of pearly white rains and the cutest rainbow
The puddle on the street that trapped the sky in it
The fragrance of flowers and wind's soothing treat.
Surprises galore, of beauties no dearth
All for our joy, happiness and mirth
They're the dreams that roll on my eyes
Each day of living is a magical surprise!

No Beer, No Work

The shades of night was fallin’ slow
As through New York a guy did go
And nail on ev’ry barroom door
A card that this here motter bore:
'No beer, no work.'

His brow was sad, his mouth was dry;
It was the first day of July,
And where, all parched and scorched it hung,
These words was stenciled on his tongue:
'No beer, no work.'

'Oh, stay,' the maiden said, 'and sup
This malted milk from this here cup.'
A shudder passed through that there guy,
But with a moan he made reply:
'No beer, no work.'

At break of day, as through the town
The milkman put milk bottles down,
Onto one stoop a sort of snore
Was heard, and then was heard no more—
'No beer, no work.'

The poor old guy plumb dead was found
And planted in the buryin’ ground,
Still graspin’ in his hand of ice
Them placards with this sad device:
'No beer, no work.'

i am not strong im weak.
weaker then anyone knows.
they say im the one who will all ways get out alive.
but this time no one will get out.
the only thing i can do to get out is run for my life.
i will not die here.my life is with my love there for i will survive.
now im running for my life.
running

im running a never ending path of hell.
flames are high.
they burn me as i run by.
i can feel my skin go numb with the pain of fires ruff
im still running it seems like i have been running for days.
but in realty its only been hours
im not beginning to fade with out even notice.
my soul is pinned in a tiny cage
breaking my freedom and faith
but im not giving up for my love is waiting.
i see a light
the fear is sinking in now.
my heaet is beating faster and faster.
and then........................................
. ................

For the Love of Man

From the break of day through the noon sun,
We toil until our work is done
Drained we turn to the ones we love,
Searching always for that special One,

For the love of man you sent Your Son,
And for the love of Man He brought no gun,
To stay alive He hid inside of everyone!

For aeons they did look for the only Son,
In the deepest oceans, on the highest mountains,
Staring at the sun, waiting for Him to come,
Tolerating none, we called for that special One,

Killing those who showed a spark,
Lives cast away in the name of your Son,
The sound of the beaten drum,
Calls to the heart of everyone,

Sacrifice the young! Worship the sun,
They don't know how to find the Holy One,
With torn flesh and broken bones,
Killing the heart of that Special One,
Quietly He dies inside of everyone!

For the love of man you sent your Son,
And for the love of Man he brought no gun,
To stay alive He hid inside of everyone!

Break your swords, stop the lie,
Bring to light the Son inside,
It will be too late to find that Special One,
If He dies inside of everyone!

Deadline

I see that I am living a dead life
and the daily life
leaves no impression on me,
and before I know I am turned into a stick,
already fossilized
and life passes me
while I do not get involved with anything.

Too many times
I had daily contact with death
and now I die from life
and every day do the same things,
the same work,
and are caught immovable like an idiot.

The same things
I write over and over
of Johnnie loosing Sally,
of love that charms,
or war that still resounds in me
and on our hands
the blood, the damned blood
and I feel at times as if the Lord doesn’t hear.

I try to live right,
to respect others,
to honour the Lord
and my poems stay the same
words of somebody surviving
and I still am able to adore
and what the church prohibits feels so right and true
while life hits me back
past the beginning.

I still feel, weep and laugh
and sometimes sing in the shower
as if nothing
is wrong with life
and I keep dreaming,
set myself to win
and to stay alive
while the deadline
slowly comes nearer to me
where my heart will beat its last stroke
before it will stop eternally.

The White Man Blues

An AK-47 submachine gun shoots stammering,
a rocket propelled grenade whooshes past
and I am in the middle
of another country’s civil war
shooting off short bursts, trying to stay alive
while forced into military service
by the government
and this day could be my last,
but it’s ok as I am still alive
and praying to an almighty God.

Having lost two cars, in less than a week
from theft by some black hooligans
who thinks that what you own
belongs to them
from which the insurance absolved themselves,
having lost my job by affirmative action
and only receiving a few months salary as pay
with all the fringe benefits being cut away

with the wife and her kids walking out
into the arms and the charms
of her new boyfriend
and in Soweto and wherever
the gangsters and politicians live, they know,
they wait and try to relieve me
from my humanity
and to turn me into a ravenous hating thing
and it isn’t news to them
they see my plight
as they are causing it
and even the government holds out its hand
for taxes when and where I have a contract work
but it’s ok as I am still alive
and praying to an almighty God.

Overdraft In Overdrive

I got a letter this morning
My overdrafts in overdrive
They wanna know what Im gonna do about it
How Im proposing to survive
Stay alive stay alive oooh
They want the money
So I work and work and work ......
Theyre making me roast
The cheques in the post
You neednt worry worry worry....
You hit the roof when Im on the floor
Did I ever let you down before
I got a letter from my broker
He say he broker than me
My silver mine has tarnished over
Im on the road to tragedy
Help me, help me, oooooh
I need the money
So I work and work and work.....
Im deeper in debt, Im covered in sweat
You make me worry, worry, worry....
This nightmares giving me the shakes
Hope I wake and find its all a mistake
I started with nothing, and worked my way down
I know the things that I do, they mystify you
Its a strange way of living
But I like playing with fire
Im always walking the wire
And when the tightrope snaps
Youll see my world collapse
I got a letter this morning
Must be my lucky day
Seems Ive inherited a fortune
Rich uncle sam passed away, away, away, ooooh
Im in the money
No more work and work and work.....
My bankers aghast, Im dripping with cash
No need to worry, worry, worry.....
You need an angel to survive
An overdraft in overdrive

Lifeblood

Another night in a succession
Thinly glued with beer and wine
Its a precarious profession
Every day at work sees your heart on the line
Maybe I should have gone to business school
Or gained myself a respectable trade
Or stayed in childhood where the shade keeps you cool
Making my living selling lemonade
But running through my veins
Are the words and the refrains
As if they were my lifeblood itself
And you know I cant stay alive on the food of 9 to 5
My dreams are just old picture on the shelf
Oh yeah
I remember the folks said give it a try
Or youll never know who you might have been
And just remember nothing is the end of the world
Until the world comes to an end
Still theres a point to this philosophy
(when you take a look inside)
Of taking a look at who you are
Still sometimes all I have to help me see
Are all the mirrors behind the bar
But running through my veins
Are the words and the refrains
As if they were my lifeblood itself
And you know I cant stay alive on the food of 9 to 5
My dreams are just old picture on the shelf
Oh yeah
But running through my veins
Are the words and the refrains
As if they were my lifeblood itself
And you know I cant stay alive on the food of 9 to 5
My dreams are just old picture on the shelf
Oh yeah

Renda Writer - Cubicle Cages

Work to live or live to work

For better or for worse
Most of us put work first

But what hurts worse
Is the world was built by blue shirts
But white shirts get respect first

It should be vice verse in the network
What's your net worth?

Evenly disperse
The paychecks and the perks

Who ever gets first
Is whoever knows how the network

And the experts
Do less work
While the rest work
Til' their heads hurt

Excessive stress and work
Is situation red alert

We're working for oppressive jerks
'Til our backs and our necks hurt

Interview is the first date
First impression

Flirt

Fired from a line of work
Surrounded by spineless lying jerks
Frowns surrounded by smirks

But now I'm outta work

Working hard or hardly working
This is hard
Cause not working hardly works
And it's hurting

Looking for a job in a city where jobs hide
All time jobless high
National debt is colossal sized
A need to eat and stay alive
Collides with human pride

War is prophesized
Even the prophets lie
And still jobs hide
Behind curtains of diversions
I'm nervous
Working on the side

Haven't found a job so far
Only found the sound of jinglin' change
Inside of an empty pocket

Listen close for the hot stock tip
Just to get to the top quick
And that's it

Now get back in your cage
