Boys From Diamond City

Echoes of a million years, lie twisted in my face
In a world without no name, and a stranger human race
In the distance how it shines, sparkles in the light
Like a flower pulls you in, you lose your mind.
And it really doesnt matter if the sky should fall
Your living under ground, theres no sky at all
Nothing much changes
Were the boys of the diamond city
Were tough like diamond
Were the boys of the diamond city
So rough, like diamonds
I remember nightmare days, like packs of dogs wed roam
Through the broken city streets, through the broken citys bone
Its so hard to stand your ground, its so hard to stay alive
cos when you fight for what you keep, you know you fight for your life
And it really doesnt matter if the sky should fall
Your living under ground, theres no sky at all
Nothing much changes
Were the boys of the diamond city
Were tough like diamond
Were the boys of the diamond city
So rough, like diamonds
I remember a time
A giant skyline
And a blue, blue sky
Its almost dreamlike
Were the boys of the diamond city
Were the boys of the diamond city
Were tough like diamond
Were the boys of the diamond city
So rough, like diamonds

1.4 Million Years In A Second

a mood swing? an interval?
a pause in the mind? of the mind?
a single entity that plays out its evolution game
1.4 million years in all within a second of this
body of 48 giving another dimension to a face

Remember Those Days

Remember those days when love was a game?
You tempted. You teased and called his name.
He tempted. He pleased. What could you blame?
Youth, vitality and the call of desire,
Sensitive skin that felt on fire.

Remember those days when love was tame?
You smiled. You relented and he became
patient, and understanding. There was no blame.
Middle years and bodily change,
give and take, fair exchange.

Hard to remember those days anymore.
Love's still there, but different than before.
You hold his hand. You hear him snore.
Older years and you're still together.
All of this you both do weather.
And once in a while you remember.

Let Erin Remember the Days of Old

Let Erin remember the days of old,
Ere her faithless sons betray'd her;
When Malachi wore the collar of gold,
Which he won from her proud invader,
When her kings, with standard of green unfurl'd,
Led the Red-Branch Knights to danger!
Ere the emerald gem of the western world
Was set in the crown of a stranger.

On Lough Neagh's bank as the fisherman strays,
When the clear cold eve's declining,
He sees the round towers of other days
In the wave beneath him shining:
Thus shall memory often, in dreams sublime,
Catch a glimpse of the days that are over;
Thus, sighing, look through the waves of time,
For the long-faded glories they cover.

Million Years Later...

This world of ours that we dwell,
survived million years very well.
When the oil is sucked out of the wells,
the pollutants make the hole to swell.

The inconsistent Changes that happen,
in and out of the world and the human,
messed up the nature and modernized the livings,
million years earth may need a gulping.

The trash we buried under the oceans,
radio active produce stored in the deep tunnels,
may reach the core of the earth,
to get purified for a spring cleaning.

The living things have to be pressurized,
for the left over human's future need.
The earth will cover with fresh seedlings,
the rejuvenated earth may breathe the fresh air.

One Million Years

Im dead , my lifes been sold
All my years are cold
No trees to hide my head
All my roads are red
And in the easter
I will see that same old sun , that shone
And in the winter
I shall stand in seas of snow , alone
I will wait for you , yeah
Your eyes will shine like new , yeah
I close my eyes and youre nowhere
And Ill wait for you for one million years
My face has long been wet
Ever since we met
We wed , I knew shes stay
Then I passed away
And in the easter
I will see that same old sun that shone
And in the winter
I shall stand in seas of snow , alone
I will wait for you
Just like you want me to
I close my eyes and youre nowhere
And Ill wait for you for one million years
And Ill wait for you for one million years

(Remember The Days Of The) Old Schoolyard

Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings and we had
All kinds of things and we laughed
And needed love... yes, I do
Oh and I remember you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to cry a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had simplicity and we had
Warm toast for tea and we laughed
And needed love.. yes, I do
Oh and I remember you
You were my sweet love, my first sweet love
My lovey dove, my love lovey dove
No matter what place, whichever the place
I still see your face, your smiling face
In childish dreams, inside my dreams
Like King and Queen, God save our dreams
N'though time may face, though time may fade
It ain't never too late, to learn about love
Learn about love
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings and we had
All kinds of things and we laughed
And needed love... yes, I do
Oh and I remember you

A Million Years Times Ninety-nine

A Million Years Times Ninety-Nine
Written by: Wilfred Mellers, Monday, October 12,2009

Give to me a few moments to explain
What I feel cannot be contain
You are the finest wine, or perhaps the best champagne
I could stare at you until I experience total eyestrain

I toil in despair from separation anxieties
When you’re not around it seems like centuries
My nights so long, drawn-out, and empty
The clock ticks slowly and hours seems plenty

Your absence causes the greatest of grief
Still is the night for creeps my heart’s thief
All I can think about is only you
I want desperately to hold you too

To me what anguish I feel when you are not near
To me when you are here the world seems clear
To me I hold you close and so dear
To me every sense becomes hyper aware

From the highest peak let me exclaim
I love you, I love you, I shall proclaim
I will give away all fortunes and my fame
Ambers sparked the fire red hot is the flame

No matter the question or how it may pertain
A life in love with you and I shall maintain
Ferocious no longer the beast now is tame
The wind carries and whispers only your name

Stricken my eyes for I see now crisscrossed
Scribed your name on my heart now it’s embossed
Exposed I would stand there naked to winter’s blaring frost
No matter the value to have you I would disburse any cost

Fluid my motion for life’s new meaning
Like an infant from the breast I now need weaning
Candles burning, incense, and the table now set
Your love is like the rain for I want to get soaking wet

Thoughts of you and all beautiful things comes to mind
Joy, love, and hope all combined
Flawless and masterfully designed
An elegant rose with tender petals you remind

Eternity I’d spend if only life would permit
My life to you forever more I want to commit
God’s gift so immaculate you are
The brightest star you outshine by far
My signatures here now placed on this dotted line
I will love you a million years times ninety nine

Never In A Million Years

Plain evil, I know whats on your mind
Never say youre leaving me behind
No trouble; get that from the start
You know the cost of loving is your heart
I would never leave you
I would never go
I would never leave you
Never in a million, never in a million
Never in a million years
Pure pleasure, the love thats in your eyes
You never give me feelings in disguise
Same fever, it comes on all the time
Always lets me know whats on my mind
Live angel, you come to me and cry
Like tears of joy come raining from the sky
Id never leave you, you knew that from the start
Ill give it to you now straight from the heart
I would never leave you
Never in a million years
I would never leave you
Never in a million years

I remember our days

I remember our days on the haybails
singing to the tunes on the ipod
I remember the parties we went to
we could drink until we dropped
I remember us going through school
lazing about knowing our exams would flop
I remember the summer of 2009
we laughed and smile so much we thought we'd never stop
I remember leaving it all behind
and onto the next train in life we hopped
I remember saying we'll stay friends
and look where we are, that never stopped
I remember falling out during the winter of 09
it was all my fault and i felt like a stupid sop
I remember us all falling in love with someone we'd met
having found someone that made us feel ontop
I remember us all losing that special someone
feeling low, needing to drink and never stop
I remember the days we'd go without speaking
feeling awkward and put on the spot
I remember all the times we'd said we'd stick it through
Cause thats what we're here for, me and you
So lets dry our tears and get it together
cause tonight we party, as if it were forever

Question

Theres a lie that runs
Across the human race
Theres a truth that draws
A tear upon your face
A child is crying and it echoes
All over the world
If we try to find some
Deep communication
Bring an end to war
And start a new creation
From the truth inside
Its waiting, its waiting
Suddenly then
The clearest voice will call
Feeling the air
You have no choice at all
Can I ask the question to you
Do you know who you are
Do you know what were doing here
Try to see the way from within
cause it isnt outside
Let your honesty see it clear
Why does anger fit our hearts
With missconception
Turn us inside out in every direction
From the truth inside
Thats waiting, its waiting
Follow the voice
That lives inside your heart
Never the choice
That tears your world apart
Take a walk and be
A wave upon the ocean
Touch the sky and
Feel our spirit in motion
This is the love inside thats waiting
Just waiting
Suddenly everything is there to see
You can be everything you want to be
Are you ready to go my love
Are you ready to be my love
Are you ready to die for love

Remember The Days

Astley/fisher
Someone called me just the other day
I thought it was you, but my hopes were washed away
I picked up the telephone, it sent a shiver down my spine
I wanted to hear your voice, and talk about old times
(chorus)
Remember the days when we walked
The times that we talked for hours and hours
Remember the way it used to be, just you and me
Remember the days
Think it over what I say
I know it could be just like it used to be
Do you believe it baby, do you share my point of view
You know that I mean it baby, and all you have to do is
(repeat chorus)
What can I do without you, how can I live without you
The days gonna come, when Im on the run
So Im begging you baby please
Remember the days
(repeat chorus)
What can I do without you, how can I live without you
So come on girl Im begging you please
Come on and talk to me
The times that we walked
The days that we used to walk out in the park
Remember how it used to be
Do you remember, do you remember how good it used to be
Come on girl, I said come on girl
To the left, to the right, were gonna rock all night

A Moment In A Million Years

Music : klaus meine
Lyrics: klaus meine
The lights are slowly fading down
Theres no one else, just you and me
Nothing ever changed
I see your faces in the crowd
It seems I know each one of you
For all my life
I wish this night could last forever
But its time to go
I saw you laugh, I saw you cry
All for one and one for all
Nothing ever changed
The way you sang just blew my mind
It gave me chills from head to toe
What a glorious night
To me it could have lasted forever
But its time to go
A moment in a million years
Is all Ive got for you
A moment in a million years
To make some dreams come true
A moment that I wont forget
Until the day I die
A moment in a million years
Called life
The bus is waiting right outside
To hit the road and once again
I leave you all behind
I chase another dream tonight
And by the time youll be home
Ill be far away
Nothing seems to last forever
Its time to go
A moment in a million years
Is all Ive got for you
A moment in a million years
To make some dreams come true
A moment that I wont forget
Until the day I die
A moment in a million years
Called life

The City Streets

A CITY of Palaces! Yes, that's true: a city of palaces built for trade;
Look down this street—what a splendid view of the temples where fabulous gains are made.
Just glance at the wealth of a single pile, the marble pillars, the miles of glass,
The carving and cornice in gaudy style, the massive show of the polished brass;
And think of the acres of inner floors, where the wealth of the world is spread for sale;
Why, the treasures inclosed by those ponderous doors are richer than ever a fairy tale.
Pass on the next, it is still the same, another Aladdin the scene repeats;
The silks are unrolled and the jewels flame for leagues and leagues of the city streets!

Now turn away from the teeming town, and pass to the homes of the merchant kings,
Wide squares where the stately porches frown, where the flowers are bright and the fountain sings;
Look up at the lights in that brilliant room, with its chandelier of a hundred flames!
See the carpeted street where the ladies come whose husbands have millions or famous names;
For whom are the jewels and silks, behold: on those exquisite bosoms and throats they burn;
Art challenges Nature in color and gold and the gracious presence of every turn.
So the winters fly past in a joyous rout, and the summers bring marvelous cool retreats;
These are civilized wonders we're finding out as we walk through the beautiful city streets.

A City of Palaces!—Hush! not quite: a, city where palaces are, is best;
No need to speak of what's out of sight: let us take what is pleasant, and leave the rest:
The men of the city who travel and write, whose fame and credit are known abroad,
The people who, move in the ranks polite, the cultured women whom all applaud.
It is true, there are only ten thousand here, but the other half million are vulgar clod;
And a soul well-bred is eternally dear—it counts so much more on the books of God.
The others have use in their place, no doubt; but why speak of a class one never meets?
They are gloomy things to be talked about, those common lives of the city streets.

Well, then, if you will, let us look at both: let us weigh the pleasure against the pain,
The gentleman's smile with the bar-room oath, the luminous square with the tenement lane.
Look round you now; 'tis another sphere, of thin-clad women and grimy men;
There are over ten thousand huddled here, where a hundred would live of our upper ten.
Take care of that child: here, look at her face, a baby who carries a baby brother;
They are early helpers in this poor plane, and the infant must often nurse the mother.

Come up those stairs where the little ones went: five flights they groped and climbed in the dark;
There are dozens of homes on the steep ascent, and homes that are filled with children—hark!
Did you hear that laugh, with its manly tones, and the joyous ring of the baby voice?
'Tis the father who gathers his little ones, the nurse and her brother, and all rejoice.
Yes, human nature is much the same when you come to the heart and count its beats;
The workman is proud of his home's dear name as the richest man on the city streets.

God pity them all! God pity the worst! for the worst are reckless, and need it most:
When we trace the causes why lives are curst with the criminal taint, let no man boast:
The race is not run with an equal chance: the poor man's son carries double weight;
Who have not, are tempted; inheritance is a blight or a blessing of man's estate.
No matter that poor men sometimes sweep the prize from the sons of the millionaire:
What is good to win must be good to keep, else the virtue dies on the topmost stair;

When the winners can keep their golden prize, still darker the day of the laboring poor:
The strong and the selfish are sure to rise, while the simple and generous die obscure.
And these are the virtues and social gifts by which Progress and Property rank over Man!
Look there, O woe! where a lost soul drifts on the stream where such virtues overran:

Stand close—let her pass! from a tenement room and a reeking workshop graduate:
If a man were to break the iron loom or the press she tended, he knows his fate;
But her life may be broken, she stands alone, her poverty stings, and her guideless feet,
Not long since kissed as a father's own, are dragged in the mire of the pitiless street.

Come back to the light, for my brain goes wrong when I see the sorrows that can't be cured.
If this is all righteous, then why prolong the pain for a thing that must be endured?
We can never have palaces built without slaves, nor luxuries served without ill-paid toil;
Society flourishes only on graves, the moral graves in the lowly soil.

The earth was not made for its people: that cry has been hounded down as a social crime;
The meaning of life is to barter and buy; and the strongest and shrewdest are masters of time.
God made the million to serve the few, and their questions of right are vain conceits;
To have one sweet home that is safe and true, ten garrets must reek in the darkened streets.
'Tis Civilization, so they say, and it cannot be changed for the weakness of men.
Take care! take care! 'tis a desperate way to goad the wolf to the end of his den.
Take heed of your Civilization, ye, on your pyramids built of quivering hearts;
There are stages, like Paris in '93, where the commonest men play most terrible parts.
Your statutes may crush but they cannot kill the patient sense of a natural right;
It may slowly move, but the People's will, like the ocean o'er Holland, is always in sight.

'It is not our fault!' say the rich ones. No; 'tis the fault of a system old and strong;
But men are the makers of systems: so, the cure will come if we own the wrong.
It will come in peace if the man-right lead; it will sweep in storm if it be denied:
The law to bring justice is always decreed; and on every hand are the warnings cried.
Take heed of your Progress! Its feet have trod on the souls it slew with its own pollutions;
Submission is good; but the order of God may flame the torch of the revolutions!
Beware with your Classes! Men are men, and a cry in the night is a fearful teacher;
When it reaches the hearts of the masses, then they need but a sword for a judge and preacher.
Take heed, for your Juggernaut pushes hard: God holds the doom that its day completes;
It will dawn like a fire when the track is barred by a barricade in the city streets.

Fireflies - Owl City

vs.1. You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep.
Cause they'd fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You'd think me rude but I would just stand and stare.
Chorus: I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turned slowly.
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems.
vs.2. Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance.
A foxtrot above my head
A sockhop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread.
(Chorus)
Leave my door open just a crack.
(Please take me away from here)
Cause I feel like such a insomniac.
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire from counting sheep?
(Please take me away from here)
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep?
To ten million fireflies
I'm weird cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell.
But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar.
(Chorus) x 2
I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly.
It's hard to say I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams.

Henry Van Dyke

Autumn in the Garden

When the frosty kiss of Autumn in the dark
Makes its mark
On the flowers, and the misty morning grieves
Over fallen leaves;
Then my olden garden, where the golden soil
Through the toil
Of a hundred years is mellow, rich, and deep,
Whispers in its sleep.

'Mid the crumpled beds of marigold and phlox,
Where the box
Borders with its glossy green the ancient walks,
There's a voice that talks
Of the human hopes that bloomed and withered here
Year by year,--
Dreams of joy, that brightened all the labouring hours,
Fading as the flowers.

Yet the whispered story does not deepen grief;
But relief
For the loneliness of sorrow seems to flow
From the Long-Ago,
When I think of other lives that learned, like mine,
To resign,
And remember that the sadness of the fall
Comes alike to all.

What regrets, what longings for the lost were theirs!
And what prayers
For the silent strength that nerves us to endure
Things we cannot cure!
Pacing up and down the garden where they paced,
I have traced
All their well-worn paths of patience, till I find
Comfort in my mind.

Faint and far away their ancient griefs appear:
Yet how near
Is the tender voice, the careworn, kindly face,
Of the human race!
Let us walk together in the garden, dearest heart,
Not apart!
They who know the sorrows other lives have known
Never walk alone.

But hes so frustrated
Cause he cant get a rise
Out of someone whos reflecting

Youre the best new face
In the human race (best new face).

City Streets

The gaudy glow of neon lights
dispels the darkness of the nights
on city streets.

They pop and fizzle noisily
creating a cacophony
on city streets.

The sober folks walk warily
and drunks stagger uncaringly
on city streets.

The ladies of the night parade
for there is money to be made
on city streets.

Drug dealers ready to retreat
if they should hear a coppers feet
on city streets.

The night shift workers wend their way
towards their work to start their day
on city streets.

The noisy revellers thin out
as one by one the signs go out
on city streets.

The gradually noises abate
and ghostly shadow congregate
on city streets.

For some few hours peace will reign
before the noise will start again
on city streets.

The early morning traffic sounds
start with the milkmen on their rounds
on city streets.

This builds up to an angry roar
as cars and lorries inward pour
on city streets

then when at last rush hour has passed
noise levels will subside at last
on city streets

I thank the lord that I am free
to leave this noise far behind me
on city streets.

I walked my beat the whole night
through exactly as I’m paid to do
on city streets.

I choose to live outside the town
where constant noise won’t get me down
on city streets.

My village is a quiet place
A haven where I need not face
the noisy streets.

It Doesnt Matter

[the rock]
Yo this is the rock kicking it with the refugee camp
And youre bout to smell what the rock is cooking
[wyclef jean](the rock)
Yo this is strictly a club record
Dedicated to everybody who used to stand outside in the cold
When the lfex was spinning at the red zone
Putting it down
And the tired bouncers would not let me in
Know what Im saying?
Yo, yo, yo, yo
I got fifty bentleys in the west indies
(it doesnt matter)
I got a pocket full of cheese and a garden full of trees
(it doesnt matter)
I just won the bingo bought a crib in rio
(it doesnt matter)
Cause if you aint sharing, people aint caring
Come up in the hood and take everything youre wearing
Back in the days it was all about the clubs
And the so-called thugs used to dance the break for love
The girls, they wouldnt say hey!
Unless you bought em champagne like it was their birthday
Me I used to hustle my way in
Im on the guest list plus five!
Whos performing tonight?
He said shabba
Mister lover that be needy and selective
(someone jump the rocks up in here)
Disrespect emcees and catch a smack in your left ear
Light up like vegas when its time to gamble
Girls scream for me like I was part of the beatles
But Im not honey
But I could be your paul mccartney
An ebony or ivory into my jacuzzi
Foundation like cool hirth as dj red alert go bizzerk
The needle aint skip the record jerked
Cause yall jumpin too hard
(hey! hey! hey! hey! hey!)
[wyclef](the rock)
I got fifty bentleys in the west indies
(it doesnt matter)
I got a pocket full of cheese and a garden full of trees
(it doesnt matter)
What? I just won the bingo bought a crib in rio
(it doesnt matter)
Yo cause if you aint sharing, people aint caring
Come up in the hood and take everything youre wearing
Yo rock I just bought a fresh bentley
(it doesnt matter you just bought a fresh bentley)
[wyclef](melky sedeck)
How many of yall ever been to a barbecue
And you always got an uncle juan that wanna show you
How all the dances go
And they start it off like this
Electric side on the dance floor
Freaky-deaky like studio 54
Girls!! until the irs raids it
Drug money get converted into music
The dope man becomes an entertainer
Leave that crack alone!
I told the customers
Im into bigger and better things mr. fiend
You want a hit?
Give me a guitar and a drum machine
And the crowd will scream loud when the bass thump
I can smell it in the air, the smell is funk
Excuse me I gotta cough
Girl you in so much ice you could freeze new york
Youre man must really love you
What does he do for a living?
(he works on wall street hes only home two nights a week)
Thats when she said a little too much conversation
I think she want to indulge in lyrical masturbation
So I proceeded with the compensation, I said
Can I offer you a glass of merrill mrs. no name?
(lets get it straight huh, my names veronica)
She had the ass the size of south america
She said aint you that kid that sing guantanamera
Way before ricky martin started livin la vida loca
What hood you come from?
I was raised in brooklyn, but did my studies in jerusalem
The new jerusalem yeah thats short for new jersey
Checked my watch it was a quarter to three
Slid to her crib when we opened the door
Her man was on the bottle waiting for her with the 44
[wyclef](the rock)
Now what it look like, it aint really that
(it doesnt matter)
So he cocked the gat at my top hat
(it doesnt matter)
Are you crazy? you was married!
(it doesnt matter)
Cause if you aint sharing, people aint caring
Come up in your hood and take everything youre wearing
Yeah thats when shorty walked up to her man
And she said I gotta go I cant be here no more
And she said this
[melky sedeck]
Take me home, to the place
I belong at the refugee camp
And the booga basement
Thats where I live, oh
Come on
Yo rock I sold like seventeen million records
(it doesnt matter how many records youve sold)
Alright Im with, yo check it out
You wanna go get diamond rings
(it doesnt matter if the rock wants to go get diamond rings or not)
Man listen, listen
I just got two new grammys man
(it doesnt matter about your grammys)
It doesnt matter

Flyng At Night

five billion years away
a planet turns,
turning a million years
this side of the planet
and my heart beats
each beats
a million years
the other side of another planet
the distance that shortens
the years
as we watch a foreign body
five billion years away
a billion years passed
a universe caught in time
an eagle flaps its wing
each flag
a million years pass
that side of the planet
time is where you are
it walks away from you
as you walk away from it

inspired by

Flying at Night
Above us, stars. Beneath us, constellations.
Five billion miles away, a galaxy dies
like a snowflake falling on water. Below us,
some farmer, feeling the chill of that distant death,
snaps on his yard light, drawing his sheds and barn
back into the little system of his care.
All night, the cities, like shimmering novas,
tug with bright streets at lonely lights like his.

City Streets

Music keeps me swinging,
Swinging down big city streets,
Wondering just who I shall meet,
How shall I greet? Who will I defeat?
Following my nose, my excitement grows,
Pavements just come and go,

What do I owe?
How will I know?
Is it too late to grow?
As above so below is all I know,
Gonna reap what you sow!

Rhythm of the street,
Every tune another beat,
Temple Emmanuel, ringing bell,
Nothing to sell,
If only you knew me well!
Heartbeat in a foreign land,
Memories like grains of sand,

Moving through life day by day,
Even when the skies are grey,
Picking up crumbs dropped long ago,
Every little speck, so that I can go!
Gotta keep moving so I can grow!

So when sadness rings it's hollow bell,
And you've got nothing to sell,
Who you gonna tell?
Deep within you can't hear the streets din,
In that stillness, once you've been,
Never to forget what you've seen!
