Convey – Inside Out Lyrics

You are the echo
From the back of the bar
You are the rain
Rattling over the roof of the car
Hold me down Make it right
Show me how to feel alive
Shake me to my bones
Trembling under a thundercloud
Shake me to my bones
‘Till I’m inside out
You are the rumble
From under the floor
You are the calm
Keeping me dry at the eye of the storm
Take me down
Make it right
Show me how to feel
You brew the storm
Never keep me warm
You’d leave me in the rain
And when it rains it pours
Where were you when it poured

Sir – John Redcorn Lyrics

Tell me that I’m wrong
Tell me I deserve all the pain that you put me through, oh
I really hate that I give a f*ck
Pressin’ my line, I don’t wanna pick up
We know enough will never be enough
I play odds against, she keep callin’ my bluff
Baby divin’ deeper and deeper
She don’t believe me when I tell her that I need her
Guess I shoulda stayed where I belonged
‘Cause once you make it back to your happy home
I’m alone, every night alone
Why am I alone? I wanna know that you want me, too
Am I wrong? I wanna know that you want me, too
Am I wrong? Alone, every night alone
Why am I alone? Tell me that I’m wrong
Tell me I deserve all the pain that you put me through, oh
You don’t have to bring me good news, babe
I just wanna be there when you choose, babe
Dreamgirl got me losin’ sleep
Baby, you remind me I’m a G
Maybe I’d be better on the run
Double vision playin’ all week
This is like a game of survival
Why am I dyin’ for a title? Is it even worth the fight? When I’ll just end up alone, every night alone
Why am I alone? Tell me that I’m wrong
Tell me I deserve all the pain that you put me through, oh
You don’t have to bring me good news, babe
I just wanna be there when you choose, babe
You don’t have to bring me good news, babe
I just wanna be there when you choose, babe
Dreamgirl got me losin’ sleep
Baby, you remind me I’m a G
Maybe I’d be better on the run
Double vision playin’ all week I wanna know that you want me, too
Am I wrong?

Babes – Totally Out Of Control Lyrics

Nooo hope, no hope there’s
Nooo hope yeah! [Verse 2]
Love is real
Love is fake
How much more
Can I take
I open up
To get a taste
Only pain
Everyday, everyday, everyday, day
[Chorus]
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)

I’m on the freeway crying
No hope, no hope, no hope
There’s
No hope, no hope, no hope
There’s
[Chorus 2]
Nooo hope, no hope there’s
Nooo hope yeah! [Verse 1]
In my mind
In the day
I could climb

In my car
In LA
Slipping fast
Fade away, fade away, fade away, way
[Chorus]
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)
Totally out of control (Totally out of control)

Nooo hope yeah! Nooo hope, no hope there’s

D12 – American Psycho Ii Lyrics (feat. B-real)

[Verse 4: Eminem]
I probably got a screw loose or two
Or maybe three or four of ’em
Some fell out and hit the floor
All I know is ever since my f*cking head hit the snowbank
I been a little neanderthalish, no thanks to my man D’Angelo Bailey
But I just take it slow daily, my biggest dilemma’s
Trying to figure whether to use the flat head or the Phillips
Or just go to the Home Depot and pick the new power drill up
It’s been two hours and six days and I’m still up
I feel like I’m about to snap any minute
There’s a new Tower Records about to stop and get a fill-up
Pick the new Cypress Hill up
And go find who did that shit to Xzibit
And go fill up a whole liquor bottle with piss
And shatter his f*cking lips with it
[Hook: B-Real]
I’m a little bit off the chain, call me insane
But the fact remains that I’m a psycho
Better get it through your brain
When you say my name
Never say it in vain ’cause I’m a psycho
[Outro: Kuniva]
Karnail Pitts a.k.a. Dre beat done brought it the f*ck out
Run in your house and put a gun in your mouth
And blow your brains the f*ck out! Who really knows? ‘Cause any second my temper can f*cking blow
I get colder than December
Black the f*ck out, tomorrow won’t even remember
See Bizarre can show you what violence is all about
And this Dr. [Intro: B-Real]
Yeah, homie
I thought we told you, we been f*cking loco
Cypress Hill, D12, bitch! Bugz
Rest in peace, homie [Hook: B-Real]
I’m a little bit off the chain, call me insane
But the fact remains that I’m a psycho
Better get it through your brain
When you say my name
Never say it in vain ’cause I’m a psycho
[Verse 1: Swift]
I’m a motherf*cking omen, I bow down to no man
Split a nigga open, killing folks compulsive
A soldier with a motive, scrotum big as boulders
I hold ’em then unload on you, put it on a poster
So everyone can notice who was focused on us poking
They nose in our business, hoping that I don’t come smoke ’em
No one knows my notions or emotions, I’m a vulture
You niggas close to croaking any moment and I know when
I could f*ck the culture up, probably rap
A maniac with anxiety attacks, I don’t wanna chat
Speak when you spoken to
And I don’t have to read a f*cking magazine or quotable
To notice what you hoes will do
[Verse 2: Kuniva]
We all soldiers, we move as a unit, we all roll up
And show up at your residence, light your front door up
Get scared, life ain’t fair
And I’m prepared to blast you just as fast as Dre can say “Hell yeah!”
So watch what you say ’cause it can happen either today or the next minute
I can draw the heater and spray and I’m dead serious
You could be dead period, end of story
I’m on your porch with a gun and your son, sipping a forty
Nobody can hold me, I does it all by my lonely
I stomp your head when you awake, you be looking like Gumby
Aftermath and Shady, bitch, you can read it and weep
You see my poster in the ‘hood for “the G of the Week”
[Hook: B-Real]
I’m a little bit off the chain, call me insane
But the fact remains that I’m a psycho
Better get it through your brain
When you say my name
Never say it in vain ’cause I’m a psycho
[Verse 3: Bizarre]
They found Saddam, but they ain’t gon’ find me
I’ll be under a tree in Buttf*ck, Tennessee
And I don’t know too much about my daddy
Except he spit in my face and f*cked me in my fanny
I ain’t a racist, I just hate whites
Fags and dykes, blacks and transvestites
Thirteen years old and joined a f*cking gang
Hair under my ass cheeks feeling the f*cking pain
Am I insane?

Swaco Tha Illest – Outta This World Pt.1 Lyrics

A grown nigga that can’t tie his shoes
Life move in cycles like a hula hoop
Yea wait, wait

All of these moment pressing all on my patience
Aiming for the sky but I’m stuck on pavement
Wait Hold up just keep it ventilated
Yea, My diary of life and it’s steady fading

Trying so hard not to push past my limit
And keep the same energy had from beginning
Im trynna stay true and just keep it authentic
And not sell my soul to become a gimmick

Shoutout to the niggas f*cking with me
Trynna be as big as jimmy
Let people influence what I wrote
Tried to be relateable
But I ain’t even know
That that shit ain’t me
I’m unpopular cause I don’t think
On that wavelength
I’m a alien
Straight from that outer space
Uh yea, the dark just be my hiding place
And I sitting back yea in the shade
Y’all twist stories
Like ricochet
These niggas man they love to hate
I seen my future 9 times
While sitting with niggas from the 9 dime
Yea Man That’s a couple of quarters
I create waves while they testing the waters
Who would’ve ever just thought of?

V Don – Get Back Lyrics (feat. Dave East)

I’m just trying to get back
Had some dimes in a sac
They out robbing for that,   ain’t   no time to   react
He can rhyme, he can rap
But   the swine on his back
Ride with 9’s on his lap, but his mind on diamonds and plaques
He did time for his strap
He not trying to relapse, he just trying to relax
He just trying to get back
Some niggas robbed him for a watch now he trying to get back
You ever been so far from home you was dying to get back? I spent time in the trap
No cosigning no rats
I got commas to stack, told my Momma I rap
f*ck what you profit, you whack
My uncle had that MPV, I would hop in the back
He had bottles of crack
If I got it I’ma give back
Wanted the [?] in blue, the Versace in black
Publishing cheques so when I die there ain’t no stopping this cash
I had my Glock in the cab
Paid attention to them niggas that watch when I pass
Listened and heard their stomach growling, they plotting the crash
I pray they try me, strapped in the store I’ma raise the stash
They snatched [L?] for that beam, we could play laser tag
Nobody helped us, couldn’t give a f*ck if you say you mad
I’m just trying to get back
Down to my lost dollar, trying to figure how I could get back
Plastic on them couches, public housing
No time for no nap
Police in my building, I pray I don’t get found with this Mac
He cheated on his bitch too many times
She’s just trying to get back
On a turnpike with 1,000 grams, just trying to get back
White girl driving, trunk filthy
Not lighting no gas
Come up right in front of niggas faces, they’ll line you for that
I’m just trying find me a bag
Taho had [?], swapped it out, we went got in the ‘lac
They could offer me the rest of my life and I’m not going rat
Had to be in the field to find out there’s shooters that’s not going clap
Like I’m going to pump these pills till me and Bully falling back to back
I ain’t got time for the chat, I’m just trying to get back
I had no hope, against the ropes, young Muhammad of rap
Wonder if jail would be the same if your Honour was black
You niggas lying, down South they define it as cap
They hate to see you take a knee, bitch I’m riding with Cap
He lost like 20 in a dice game he trying to get back
But when it come to women, he Frankie Lymon with that
He got designers on speed dial, he ain’t copping from [sacks?]
Know how to get guap in the trap, he got time to get back
Plug fronted, fiends love that he trying to hide his stash
Tried to Osama the ave’
You know, blow it up
Slide off, go hop in the cab
More profit to get you count them extras that’s not in the bag
Rappers talking all this politics shit, they not in the lab
I done got jumped, [?], and I done been stabbed
I’m just trying to get back
Ride with the 9 on his lap, but he got the swine on his back
His mind on diamonds and plaques
Came from the bottom, went back
Don’t too much shopping, he stack
Rest in peace, Bundles
All through the jungle we’re sliding the stack
They f*ck with me, the hood is stuck to me, no way I could detach
I’m just trying to get back
You ain’t gotta go to work no more, told my Momma “relax”
All these rappers claim they got it, trust they are not in the trap
Just smoking in the front with him, his body got found in the back
He nervous and his GPS ain’t working
He trying to get back
Down to my lost dollar, trying to figure how I could get back
Plastic on them couches, public housing
No time for no nap
Police in my building, I pray I don’t get found with this Mac
He cheated on his bitch too many times
She’s just trying to get back
On a turnpike with 1,000 grams, just trying to get back
White girl driving, trunk filthy
Not lighting no gas
Come up right in front of niggas faces, they’ll line you for that
I’m just trying find me a bag

Burn – Last Great Sea Lyrics

We started out late and watched all the others from behind
Through their rise and decline and what bored us in between
We dropped what we had
Or some cases we dragged it along
But in our minds
For us this was the beginning of time
I had one empty hand that never felt true touch on the palm
I left it out uncovered and it got cut open when they found out it’s vulnerability
When I figure out what’s wrong with myself
I can heal the wounds I like to show
You’ve seen them so many times
When I smiled at the wrong times
This sea before me I can pass
I can see past so I go
Writhing in this great sea
Wild to be afloat on the strips ripped from life’s pleasures
The sick treasure of a constant high makes this raft drift
And curve under it’s power
I’m drenched but loving the unknown source of this force
But my course leads straight to it’s mouth
I stand on new ground where nobody knows me
I begin again and it’s new
At first it feels good
And then the sensitivity is gone
I begin to lose faith
And it shows in my walk
I begin to let myself down
This last sea before me
I cannot pass
I can’t see past
I stand awestruck as I’m slowly dragged into it

Convey – The Way Lyrics

Topple all the monuments for men who came before me
Silence all who underestimated and ignored me
All of you are only on the earth to tell my story
Yet
Some of you refuse to let me shine
I will send a shockwave and all of you will hear me
I will send an earthquake and all of you will fear me
All of what you thought you knew is now only a theory
And only I can be a guiding light
When the truth is
Slippery
I can help you hold on
When the lies are a symphony
I’m the only one loud enough
Truth is trickery when all’s said and done
Let me show you the way
Let me show you the way
We’ll break every convention and eradicate the process
All who
Dare to question will be branded as dishonest
Silence all dissension and make good on what we promised
Only I can be a guiding light

Babes – Come Back To Me Lyrics

Come back, come back, come back… [Verse 1]
If you ever ever loved me
A tiny tiny bit
I’m so f*cked up I don’t know anymore
Am I wasting my time on you
[Chorus]
Come back to me
Come back to me
And I’ll change anything you don’t like baby
Come back to me
Come back to me
[Post Chorus]
Will you come back to me? Will you come back? [Verse 2
Sinking down to the bottom of the pool
Thinking how you’re so cruel
Lately while my mind drifts away
To things you said we would do
If the dreams we dreamed of were really true
Then we’d have no dreams at all
[Chorus]
So come back to me
Come back to me
[?]
Come back to me
Come back to me
[Post Chorus]
Will you come back to me? Will you come back?

Rhett Akins – Somebody New Lyrics

Susie said she’d seen you
And you were doing fine
Then Bill butted in and changed
The subject for the umpteenth time
Julie walked up and said hello
Then pretended she didn’t know
But I could tell when the
Tears welled up in her eyes
Somebody knew but they weren’t saying
All of my friends would just look away and
Change the subject when the subject came to you
They’d act like they knew nothin’
But I knew they were hidin’ somethin’
Somebody knew you’d found somebody new
Johnny said last he’d heard
You were movin’ away
Well I think he knew where to
But he wouldn’t say
Molly walked up said
There’s a new girl in town
Would it be okay if she brought her around
That answered what I’d been wonderin’ about all day

Elvenking – Devil’s Carriage Lyrics

On a hill, on the devil?s top
There is a man hiding in the shadows of the night
He?s trying to stop the course of time
The line dividing good from wrong
There is more than meets the eye
In this world full of lies and death
The devil?s carriage is leading all the souls to a place so far away
[Bridge:]
You can?t deny your innocence! Your life won?t be forever
You should show your nicest part
You are the one who cries
[Bridge 2:]
You will see
What you have never seen
In the afterlife you know you will forever be
At the fair, in the dragon?s lair
You won?t be safe ?cause the red driver?s waiting there
He will be taking you through a nightmare you have never had before
[Bridge:]
You can?t deny your innocence! Your life won?t be forever
You should show your nicest part
You are the one who cries
[Bridge 2:]
You will see
What you have never seen
In the afterlife you know you will forever be
[Chorus:]
The devil?s carriage ride
It?s a trip to the other side
All it?s said and done
Won?t count a single word
Been taken in the devil?s care
You?ve never been a step downstairs
But you have to know
It?s gonna happen here and now…
It?s your future and watch out
?Cause the devil?s carriage?s running on and on! At the fair, in the dragon?s lair
You won?t be safe ?cause the red driver?s waiting there
He will be taking you through a nightmare you have never had before
At the sight of this dark fright night
He came and took another soul
Bleding all it?s light
And from the coach the sound of laughter, of laughter

Incubus – Karma, Come Back Lyrics

So come back
My shadow dancer
From the dark, Joan of Arc, show us a pearl
[Chorus]
You’ve got
Got to do better
Before this karma, karma, karma comes back
Yeah you’ve got
Got to do better
Before this karma, karma, karma comes back
Oh you’ve got

Swim out
Into the ether
Water’s fine, every time, where we unfurl
But come back
Beautiful creature
With what you found, underground, bring it back, girl… [Verse 1]
You’re right
To be kind of bitter
That serenade, you could say it was a con
But their   light
Is   starting to flicker
Final   act, take it back like a   black swan
[Chorus]
I’ve got
Got to do better
Before this karma, karma, karma   comes   back
Yeah   I’ve got
Got to   do better
Before this   karma, karma, karma comes back
Yeah bring it back
[Verse 2]
I’ll ask
But I know the answer
What the f*ck?

We’d love to hear your feedback. I’ve been hugely privileged in my journalistic career, beginning in Lisbon not long after the overthrow of the dictatorship, then, for the Monitor, based in Beirut and later Jerusalem, covering both sides of the Middle East conflict, in Moscow during the waning years of the Soviet Union, in South Africa during the waning years, and final violence, of apartheid. Send your thoughts to me at   fitzgeraldg@csmonitor.com. For Monitor television, I returned there to cover the release of Nelson Mandela, and was in Berlin the night the wall came down. All of this, I suppose, brought home to me the importance of the values and principles that were part of the post-World War II architecture built under that American leadership: above all, perhaps, institutions like an independent judiciary, an independent media, and basic individual rights and freedoms.Read much more of Ned Temko’s interview on CSMonitor.com.

Though President Donald Trump has supercharged the idea of “America first,” at the time he was elected the U.S.    You also wrote in your overview story how a woman in a public housing development in the north of England is tied to NATO, the E.U., the White House and the Kremlin in the same way as China’s leader Xi Jinping. In their place, in many countries, was a rising polarization and a brand of politics powered by populism, nationalism, and often resentment and anger. But over many decades, the main guiding principles – democracy, free markets, trade and, perhaps above all, human rights and the rule of law – became more and more widely accepted, or at least aspired to. There’s also a compelling “Navigating Uncertainty” audio report by Dominique Soguel based on conversations with a number of those opposing Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s consolidation of power and his increasing constraints on democracy and free expression. Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program. It was not perfect. Send in the coronavirus detectives.Also, importantly, we wanted to shine a light on individuals and institutions who are actively looking for new ways to make common cause on issues like human rights, social and religious tolerance, free speech, economic development and fairness – as well as to tackle specific new challenges like climate change. But as the 12 correspondents reporting our Navigating Uncertainty series are discovering, with great challenges come new paths to progress. The 1930s – the years of the Great Depression – also saw a rise in nationalism, populism, protectionism, and isolationism. should engage in military action only in response to a clearly defined threat, and with a clearly defined and well-thought-out aim. The halting, and in some cases belated, response of many Western governments to the spread of the virus also brings in other issues we’d set out to explore in the series: the rise of populist politics, or the growing distrust among many people of existing institutions, leaders, policy experts, and of the idea of facts-based policy. Tensions among nations, the destructive impact of climate change, the slipping away of economic security and human rights, along with a rise in nationalism, have spurred many to ask the question: Why does everything feel as if it’s coming unmoored?

Ned Temko is the Monitor’s London correspondent and wrote the first story for the series. Loading… It was, of course, initially a series of structures and principles largely focused on Western countries and which was led, indeed created, largely by the United States. All of this at a time when the old economic certainties were being challenged not just by new technology and a shift toward a more globally interwoven economy, but by ever-widening gaps in income and a narrowing of opportunities for many of those who were being left behind.The aim of the series, as it evolved, was ambitious: to look at the human stories behind these headline trends; to draw out the patterns and connections that linked these different stories.I think what the series most aspires to do – what we think of as “Monitor journalism” – is to step back from the day-to-day headline events and, along with readers, navigate our way toward a clearer, more nuanced picture of the major changes that have been underway. was already on a post-Iraq war path toward a less assertive and engaged role. But the other reason we began with the example of this woman, Margaret Farley, whom I in fact met on a reporting assignment in the aftermath of 2008 crash, was to emphasize that the changes and challenges which we’ve been tracing in the “Navigating Uncertainty” series do not involve only heads-of-government, or international alliances, or corporate CEOs, but millions of individual citizens in dozens of countries around the world. Some of the issues we’d set out to chronicle and illuminate have proved strikingly relevant to the pandemic.To take just one example, the question of the increasingly interconnected world economy, which both contributed to the worldwide spread of the virus and has had a major impact on the frantic scramble around the globe to secure things like ventilators or protective equipment – much of which turns out to come from the country where COVID-19 first appeared: China.

In our series Navigating Uncertainty, the Monitor is delving deeply into the growing global disorder challenging leaders and institutions worldwide. I think the answer is that it hasn’t so much changed the need for the series as made it more timely. London-based Ned Temko navigates us through challenging times

Even before the outbreak of the coronavirus, fear and uncertainty about the state of the world were escalating. All of these have been evident in a number of major democracies, or in opposition politicians opposing sitting governments. If we cannot do both in tandem, we will face the worst of each.” What’s your take on this?I agree wholeheartedly with Kissinger’s view. It’s a disorder that has been made all the more striking by the crises caused by the coronavirus pandemic. What I’d add is that one of the major issues over the next few years is likely to be America’s role in the world. The pandemic has also become a major stress test for longstanding international partnerships and alliances that were also, as the series reflects, becoming increasingly fragile.We look back at what the world was experiencing in the 1930s as a reference point to today’s global challenges. In other words, efforts to shape whatever “new world order” emerges on the other side of the instability and uncertainty that have grown dramatically over the past few years.Find all of our Navigating Uncertainty stories on the series home page.When the Monitor first planned the Navigating Uncertainty series, we were still weeks away from the point where millions of people were forced to shelter in their homes from a virus that is knocking the global economy off its axis. Has coronavirus changed the need for this series?A good question, and one we have naturally been asking ourselves as the COVID-19 crisis has spread and intensified. And maybe they also were, by the turn of the new century, simply taken for granted. And I wouldn’t suggest that American policies and actions have always been perfect. I asked Ned why the series was launched.Many of us at the Monitor had been witnessing the ground-level effects of that “unmooring” from many of the institutions and assumptions that had underpinned national and international politics – and our own lives – since the aftermath of World War II. The open question – part of the “uncertainty” we’re trying to navigate in the series – is whether those trends will become ever more dominant, or whether we’ll see a kind of new world order that retains an outward-looking, cooperative, international point of view.Where are the biggest threats now to all of the gains that were achieved as democracy and human rights expanded after World War II?My own sense is that the main challenge is to recreate a sense among governments, within communities, and among individual citizens both of the importance, and fragility, of the post-war consensus.   I was struck by a recent opinion piece by Henry Kissinger in the Wall Street Journal in which he states “No country, not even the U.S., can in a purely national effort overcome the virus. Remind us what we went through then and how that compares and contrasts with what we’ve experienced in recent years?There are indeed potential parallels, I think, which are likely to become more significant in light of the huge economic contraction being caused by the shutdowns put in effect in many major countries to control the spread of COVID-19. And in a series piece that’s coming up in the weeks ahead, our Middle East correspondent, Taylor Luck, will be looking at the lonely but determined struggle being waged by rights activists in the Arab world now that the proclaimed hope and promise of the so-called Arab Spring seem to have largely faded. In many countries, they’re having to make a renewed case for these principles, to explain why they matter, and to risk criticism, opprobrium, or sometimes personal freedom or even their lives, to defend them.Give us examples of people and institutions who are countering the forces giving rise to growing authoritarian power and the decline of human rights.That’s one of the most extraordinary things amid all the dramatic changes occurring in the world: the enormous resiliency of those who, broadly speaking, believe passionately in human rights and in the idea that might does not necessarily mean right. No country’s policies are. Kissinger is calling. Want to end state lockdowns? This has been very much part of the series articles that have appeared so far, whether in Anne Scott Tyson’s fascinating look at the protest movement in Hong Kong or those who continue to defend a separate political path for Taiwan from mainland China’s; or, for instance, Sara Miller Llana’s encounter with pro-democracy activists in populist President Jair Bolsinaro’s Brazil. That’s why I say there is a new and important challenge for governments and civic groups and citizens who do believe in them. Yet my long experience as an international correspondent has left me firmly convinced that American involvement has far more often been a force for good and that American leadership has been, and almost certainly still is, indispensable to achieving the kind of collaborative vision for which Dr. I recognize, and in fact share, the view that the U.S. What’s the connection and why is that important to progress?The link is in the erosion of many of the institutions and life assumptions that for so long defined the politics of the post-World War II world, and which I suppose began to unravel in the wake of the international economic crisis of 2008.

Africa goes to war on COVID misinformation – with song

African megastars, including Grammy Award winner Youssou N’Dour and Senegalese rapper Didier Awadi, have also joined the #DontGoViral campaign. A Nigerian newspaper told men to keep safe by shaving their beards, while black tea has been touted as a cure in Kenya. Already, more than 400 artists from 36 African countries have participated, according to i4Policy. But it also highlights art’s unique power to educate and unite – and artists’ power for good. “I hope #DontGoViral can give artists a new awareness of their societal importance,” says Islam Elbeiti, a radio DJ, jazz bassist, and activist who works with i4Policy. “Whatever you touch, wash your hands with soap.”   In another video, dancers from Compagnie Tcheza in Comoros demonstrate the importance of social distancing by spinning away from each other in a series of impressive flips and high-energy turns.

Paris
France and Spain, two of the worst-hit countries in the coronavirus pandemic, were laying out separate roadmaps Tuesday for lifting their lockdowns, while signs emerged that the virus has been all but vanquished in New Zealand and Australia.But on the other side of the globe, Brazil was emerging as a new hotspot for infections. Surfers hit the waves at dawn on Tuesday, builders returned to construction sites, and baristas fired up espresso machines.In Australia, hundreds returned to the water after Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach reopened to swimmers and surfers. Although social distancing rules still apply, New Zealand has eased its strict lockdown restrictions after success in limiting the outbreak. And new doubts were raised over whether Japan would be able to host the already postponed Summer Olympics next year without the development of a vaccine.The key question of when to reopen schools loomed around the world as nations sought to restart their battered economies.Although the coronavirus seems to affect children far less seriously than adults, many officials, teachers, and parents are concerned about the health risks that school openings could pose. Some point to the difficulties of ensuring that children stick to social distancing, frequent hand washing, and the health risks for teachers.But many parents would struggle to return to work without schools being open, hampering efforts to counter the world’s deep economic tailspin. Trump also admitted the number of virus deaths could reach 70,000 in the U.S., after citing 60,000 several times this month.The number of confirmed infections worldwide has risen to over 3 million and the confirmed death toll has topped 211,000, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. The true toll of the pandemic is likely much higher because of limited testing, mild cases that are missed, flaws in counting the dead, and governments that may be trying to conceal the extent of their outbreaks.Italy, Spain, France, and Britain accounted for more than 21,000 virus-related deaths each.In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro has insisted COVID-19 is just a “little flu” and claimed there is no need for the type of restrictions that have slowed the infection’s spread elsewhere. No opening date has yet been set.Scientists agree children are less at risk from the virus and appear to transmit it less than adults, said Mr. The president of the Japan Medical Association, Yoshitake Yokokura, said he thinks it will be difficult to hold the rescheduled Tokyo Summer Olympics even in 2021 without an effective coronavirus vaccine.Japan and the International Olympic Committee agreed to postpone the Tokyo 2020 Games until July 2021 due to the pandemic.Japan is under a month-long state of emergency amid a rapid increase of infections, and medical workers say hospitals are overburdened. “Young children have done very well in this disaster.”Mr. As some nations begin to prepare for a return to normal, Brazil still faces the potential of a surge. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said people had done an incredible job of breaking the chain of virus transmission but cautioned they needed to remain vigilant.”There may still be some smoldering ashes out there, and they have the potential to become a wildfire again, if we give them the chance,” she said, quoting a microbiologist.Her government loosened its lockdown, which had shuttered schools and most businesses.

Nerorgasmo – Freccia Lyrics

Credi che lo farai presto
Presto forse già domani
Forse troverai il coraggio
Fatto tutto con le tue mani
Che la forza possa tornare forse è meglio rimandare
Venti venticinque anni
Venti ventisette anni
Venti ventinove anni
Che la forza possa tornare forse è meglio rimandare
Ma chi rimane si trova nulla nelle mani
Tranne il ricordo di quello che non c’è già più
E tu che cercavi una fine mai compiuta
Avvolgiti nel vuoto dei tuoi anni senza età
Senza un inizio senza una fine
Succhiando nel vizio di chi rifiuta di soffrire
Restiamo sul vago dove tutto è uguale al nulla
Passi un altro giorno passi pure un altro anno
Basta solamente che le mie distrazioni
Seppur laceranti non lascino mai interruzioni
Cerco la forza per tirarmi fuori
Cerco la fede per non cadere più domani
Cerco un varco tra i miei pensieri chiusi
Cerco un varco tra i miei pensieri chiusi
Ma mai più di sogni ormai non ce n’è più
Ma mai più di voglia ormai non ce n’è più
L’unica speranza è coltivare la costanza
Ma mai più di sogni ormai non ce n’è più
Sono briciole di gioventù
Ultima energia la forza per buttarsi via

Outline In Color – Dissolve Lyrics

[Pre-Chorus]
I was the salt of the earth
I was spawned from the red dirt
Stuck inside my head
I made everything worse
Unholy hallucination
I’m feeling like a living abomination
[Bridge]
It follows
It follows
[Chorus]
And I’m dead to rights
It’s I against I
An eye for an eye
If the good must die
I live this lie
This ends tonight
[Verse 3]
I sold myself out to sickness
(A thousand lives I have witnessed)
Branded our name in my skin
(I let the wrong ones in)
I dissolved into static
Lived life in a panic
It’s I against I
Sometimes the good have to die
[Verse 4]
Someday I’ll become
Just a photo in a frame
Have I really changed at all
Am I exactly just the same
Why does life feel
Like some kind of f*cking game
Will my legacy end here
Or with my god damned name
Have I actually touched
A single f*cking soul
Did I ever lift you up
Tell me did I fulfill my role
I never meant to be the one
To let you down
I was just too busy
Drifting in my own sound
Forever in debt to the dream
Why do we come here just to leave Does my emptiness complete you? [Verse 1]
I found my voice
When I was young
I screamed ’til I couldn’t speak
But they couldn’t hear me
But they couldn’t hear me
My broken words
Rolled off my tongue
From lungs that could barely breathe
But they couldn’t hear me
But they couldn’t hear me
[Pre-Chorus]
I was the salt of the earth
I was spawned from the red dirt
Stuck inside my head
With the ones that I hurt
Unholy hallucination
Reliving a relentless
Fixation
[Chorus]
And I’m dead to rights
It’s I against I
An eye for an eye
If the good must die
I live this lie
This ends tonight
[Verse 2]
I live my truth
So don’t you f*cking ask
What I have been through
Is it because I have no control?

Methyl Ethel – Groundswell Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve been acting strangely, you were out of touch
Dribbling some memory while out and having lunch
I thought I should run away as fast as you could think of
Another excuse for why we were out of touch
Come and read me twice, believe me once again
Pulled a few ones over but I won’t show up
If you can’t be free, I won’t be honest
[Chorus]
And by the time you come back
By the time you come back and see that
Well, I’ve gone home
You’ll be free but you won’t need it
[Verse 2]
Sure, there were times and times when we’d be out
And I realised it’s the distance
I’ll be around so we can sort this out
[Chorus]
And by the time I come back
By the time I come back and see that
You’ve gone home
I’ll be free but I won’t need it
[Outro]
Might’ve if I hadn’t wound up as an addict
Now I’m going to change my mind
Well, reason suits me better, hoping to forget it
Now I hope to change your life
Might’ve if I hadn’t wound up as an addict
Now I’m going to change your mind
Well, reason suits me better, hoping to forget it now
