Talib Kweli & Styles P – Brown Guys (The Seven Album)

[Verse 1: Styles P]
I am a brown guy
But don’t call me nigga, please
Nigga please, you see that white boy, that’s a nigga b
Nigga ain’t a color, it’s a mindstate, you diggin’ me?
Maybe not, I get it tho
But all them white boys blowin’ weed they some niggas too
The difference is they got white privileges
Cops will kill me but I doubt that they kill ’em too
This ain’t a stab or a jab
But I’m feeling kinda mad they ain’t treated like a villain too
His weed is good as mine, his gun bigger than mine
And he motherfucking chilling too
Now if my color make you hate me then I hope you go blind
And can’t see what your children do
Now that sound kinda harsh
But you would feel like I feel if you had black children too
Racism make you sayin’ and I shoulda have your man
Sittin’ there with the sick face
A dickface, you a dickhead
And what you gonna to with all the people from a mixed race
America is a sick place (you know)
But we paint it to be good
This is big city talk that we spreadin’ worldwide
Coming from a humble nigga coming out a poor hood, ghost

[Bridge]
Styles P, Talib Kweli, The Seven

[Verse 2: Talib Kweli]
Life of a brown guy
Travel ’round the would with the name of a Muslim man
Now there are some up- and some downsides
The downside is niggas get their spinal cord shattered in police vans
I ain’t a Muslim but my friends is
Grew up Christian now I’m sorta spiritual I know it’s cliché
I see colors in the music
We switch it up, you see the gods mix it up like a DJ
You say you’re hating based on race, huh
And that you’re colorblind and you like Hip-Hop
Like that’s some kind of call like you can’t get punched in the face, huh
That’s why the Hindus and the Sikhs being abused by Islamophobes
Extremism is ugly no matter what or where
People who don’t believe in god kill all the time
The Bible more violent than the Quran, you see what’s in there?
Ain’t no belief system got a monopoly on all the crime
I judge a man by his actions and by his enemies
But they don’t show themselves without a good reason
This ain’t a TV show, nigga
They think they know the hood cause they seen The Wire, the good seasons
I don’t need your sympathy
I don’t need your empathy your opinion is not required here
That’s why you’re hidin’ on the Internet
‘Cause all that ‘Nigga’-shit you’re writin’ will probably get you fired, yeah
Fucked up, too

Talib Kweli & Styles P – Nine Point Five (feat. Sheek Louch, Jadakiss & Niko Is) (The Seven Album)

[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
As time goes by, an eye for an eye
That’s the best way to keep everybody blind
When the truth is in the building all these lives gon’ die
Cause like my man Chaz Van, eh the vibes don’t lie
Man, get your hands up in the sky, wave ‘em from side to side
Cause I’m twenty years plus, still killin’ it right
This Marco Polo off the Richter, man it’s 9.5
You make the earth quake, shakin’ to death like fault line
Now when I talk about vibe, what I mean is organic
We planting seeds for the trees, we need to breathe on the planet
Indeed we really take the planet for granted
Bulldoze the granite at Standing Rock
We plundered and we wonder why the planet hot
Made in His image, are we worshipping the man or not?
Get an uncomfortable feeling every time I hear “Planet Rock”
Disappointed in the leadership, hand to God
Evidence is more than the images the cameras shot
You follow blind faith it make you seem unclean
But faith in only evidence of things I’ve seen
Cause information make it harder for us to follow discussions
But educated guesses beat wild assumptions
Information lead to knowledge, knowledge lead to wisdom
Wisdom lead to understanding, once you have all that
You start demanding justice
Justice is what love look like in public
I ain’t just writing for it, I’m out here fighting for it

[Hook: NIKO IS]
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five

[Verse 2: Sheek Louch]
Contemplating, I be hating how we coming up short
Filling up court, my skin pigment new black thought
Telling me lies, ain’t nothing about you moving no pies
Fabricating on your Instagram, listen fam you a king
But you carry yourself way too weak
Songs I sing is prophesized, modern day Haile Selassie
Coke bars singing young papi
Now, who want this four-pound of knowledge I shoot?
Still wavy Rolex on, bitch calling me cute
Hands up for some real niggas, when I rise, you rise
Right now I ain’t got no more tries
Mom’s chillin’ watching over me, no more cries

[Verse 3: Jadakiss]
No more tears, right now no more years
And we could throw a million protests, no one cares
‘Cause we just get all out of character and throw some chairs
Eventually they burn us out and tell us “go somewhere”
But the love is too genuine and wholesome here
That’s why the light ain’t too bright but the road look clear
Yea, personally I got my bread as a crook
But once I finish with the work I dip my head in a book
There’s room in the bed, either at the head or the foot
I tell you this, Hip Hop ain’t as dead as it looks
Naw, diversions to cover up the lies
We some real muthafuckas on the rise

[Hook: NIKO IS]
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five

[Verse 4: Styles P]
As time goes by, an eye for an eye
You won’t hear a tear drop when a young child cries
Made in God’s image but tell me do God lie?
You’re deceiving, is it racism in the sky?
I believe in God, but [?]
Yea I got my third eye, wish I had my third ear
Seventh sense, I got my sixth sense in third gear
On a highway to hell, learn how to swerve fear
It’s deep talk or street talk
It’s war talk or it’s peace talk
Get the hemp paper, tear the leaf off
Spoke like you woke but you actin’ all sleep dog
The wolves give a fuck about sheep talk
The rich give a fuck about cheap talk
How figuring angles, ways to knock the beast off
This is Satan’s house but we plannin’ to break the lease off
Me and Kweli on the rise
Ghost, but you see some Ali in his eyes
Pressure bust pipes but it still make diamonds
Shining, see the silver lining in the sky
I don’t ride waves cause I’m my own tide
Learn to be peaceful, dealt my own pride
Ego, the feeble will always make the stride to take the strong out
Know hard work, took the long route
And I could do it two more times
Or matter of fact, a few more times
Tell your favorite emcee to make a few more rhymes
Then meet us on the Seven tour
What he feelin’ threatened for?
We gon’ kill ‘em lyrically, what he bring his weapons for?
Hands up, stand up, what you think we reppin’ for?
We some real muthafuckas, don’t you know that?
Lyrically, you gon’ get this picture like a Kodak

Talib Kweli & Styles P – In The Field (The Seven Album)

[Intro: Malcolm X]
There was two kind of slaves, there was the house negro and the field negro, the house negro they lived in the house, with master
The house negro if master said we got a good house here the house negro said "yeah we got a good house here" whenever the master said we you said we that’s how you can tell a house negro if the master got sick the house negro will say "whats the matter boss, we sick?" We sick!?!
That was that house negro in those days he was called a house nigga and that’s what we call them today cause we still got some house niggas running around here

[Verse 1: Styles P]
Yeah it’s black on black crime but it’s blue on black crime
Police killin’ the brown man and doing no time
The judge is a Nazi, but he ain’t in the Klan
The jail’s the plantation they spread it across the land
I’m thinkin’ what will that change?
If big industry money pays for campaigns (think about it)
I know the 1 percenters lovin’ that the gov run the people
But people should run the government
The day of reckonin’ is when the sleep wakes up
And the 99 percenters can really cake up
I ain’t go to Harvard or Yale, I went to jail
But hold a horse that’s pale, and the slave ship sails
It ain’t on water, but I know who’s steerin’ it
The reptilians hid the truth about the pyramids, damn
My genetics is kinetic, the devil is a lie
His agenda is pathetic

[Hook: Styles P & Talib Kweli]
I ain’t no house nigga, I be in the field, I be in the field, I be in the field
But I ain’t a slave, I’m a king and that’s real
I be in the field, I be in the field (house nigga)
I ain’t no house nigga, I be in the field, I be in the field, I be in the field
If we ain’t got freedom, we ain’t got free will
I be in the field, I be in the field

[Verse 2: Talib Kweli]
Yeah there’s black on black crime
But there’s white on white crime
When you adjust for population all the numbers they align
So why we never hear white on white on the nightly news?
Ain’t no profitin’ over criminalizin’ white dudes
Poverty breeds criminals but watch what you call me
Because if I’m a criminal what about bankers on Wall Street?
Or the fast food industry that be feeding us horse meat?
Been this way since in the fields picking sugar or coffee nigga
I ain’t no house nigga, I be in the field
Probably with the steel now they got me on the wheel
With the ghost, too confident to be cocky to keep it real
We veto that phony shit and block it like a bill
Whether Bobby by the pound, or Whitney by the ki
We movin’ weight it’s a mistake to get money and make it free
They’ll lock up Jesus when they see wooly hair and burnt feet
If you a felon you a slave, remember the thirteenth, nigga

[Hook: Styles P & Talib Kweli]
I ain’t no house nigga, I be in the field, I be in the field, I be in the field
But I ain’t a slave, I’m a king and that’s real
I be in the field, I be in the field (house nigga)
I ain’t no house nigga, I be in the field, I be in the field, I be in the field
If we ain’t got freedom, we ain’t got free will
I be in the field, I be in the field

[Verse 3: Styles P]
I thought Barack could have been a spook who sat by the door
But he signed a dark act middle finger to the law
Now I gotta get a foreign plan to eat raw
But I wouldn’t be surprised if they killed me on tour
Life is a bitch, America is a whore
Get sick and try to see this little picture I draw
You can have a gun but need bullets to go to war
You already half-dead from the food that’s in the stores

[Verse 4: Talib Kweli]
Ghost these rappers ain’t better tellin’ tales so tall
A whole industry of employees pretendin’ that they the boss
Niggas that you thought was official is fallin’ off
Shit ain’t been the same since the ’95 Source
Every breath that we take is a threat, they pissed off
If we alive we get put in the system and get lost
My mother scared for us, prepared for the loss
But sayin’ shit like if you die make sure you got on clean drawers

[Hook]
I ain’t no house nigga, I be in the field, I be in the field, I be in the field
But I ain’t a slave, I’m a king and that’s real
I be in the field, I be in the field (house nigga)
I ain’t no house nigga, I be in the field, I be in the field, I be in the field
If we ain’t got freedom, we ain’t got free will
I be in the field, I be in the field

[Outro: Malcolm X]
I’m a field negro, just as the slave master of that day used Tom, the house negro, to keep the field negroes in check the same old slave master today has negroes who are nothing but modern Uncle Tom’s to keep you and me in check, keep us passive and peaceful
It’s like when you go to the dentist and the man is gon’ take your tooth. you gon’ bite him when he start pulling, so they squirt some stuff in your jaw called Novocaine to make you think they not doing anything to you. So you sit there and cause you got all that Novocaine in your jaw you suffer, peacefully

Talib Kweli & Styles P – Last Ones (The Seven Album)

(Yeah)
(What’s Happenin’?)
(What’s Happenin’?)
(What’s up, what’s happenin, what’s up?)

[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
All my rap friends went crazy I’m the last one left
These haters prayin’ they can celebrate the last one’s death
None of them niggas in my class that couldn’t pass one test
But that’s what happens when you rappin’ on a [?] depth
I never chat shit
The flow bat-shit, it’s major league
Major Keys like Khaled (it’s accurate)
Recognize a dime when you pass it
With this weapon I’s rhymin’, I’m an assassin
Put nine minutes to the casket, you bastards
Stare in the abyss and the Leviathan (oh yea)
You say a prayer for the dying men
Looking for that pleasure but you findin’ sin
Can’t be scared to take a loss if you tryin’ to win

[Verse 2: Styles P]
Recognize greatness, tenacious
Gracious, mark of design, the new Matrix
I can make Dr. Strange brain look basic
MCs on the dinner menu and I ain’t ate shit
Who’s the entree? I’m a giant like Andre
You just an appetizer, weak rapper in harm’s way
These elite rhymes, prayers and peace signs
Staring at the air, fled the joint, hope the beast died
Icy ass road, no brakes let the Jeep slide
Playing hide and seek with my sleep, where did he hide?
Popular, hook philosopher since knee high
Ironic, I really ran with the wolves at G high
You ain’t hearing me, higher power preparing me
To have a higher power in rap for transparency
I’m clear to you, I’m here with you
High and in the cloud, I should put it in the air for you

[Hook: Talib Kweli & Styles P]
All my rap friends went crazy I’m the last one left
All my street homies crazy I’m the last one right
(Last ones, left right)
(Last ones, left right)
All my rap friends went crazy I’m the last one left
All my street homies crazy I’m the last one right
(Last ones, left right)
(Last ones, left right)
(Last ones)

[Verse 3: Talib Kweli]
Paint it like I’m JJ, for real I’m not for play play
If I work then I get paid, they whip them slaves like the nae nae
I’m smashin’ ’em if you askin’ ’em what’s happenin’ and they say
I’m original, you a re-run, Dwayne hey hey hey
Do the rise got my squad information like what bae say
I seen my brother you got to be more specific when you say bae
A spark like a melee, feelings I don’t placate
Give a fuck what Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney say say say
Fuck the KKK, respect the family, me and you got a play date
I’ll send you to hell and Satan will be your playmate
O-K-K, like Lil Scrappy but pay attention to what they say
Sound like some old "catch me on payday" type niggas who like to get missin’
Nah, pay what you want (cough it up), but you ain’t the homie, now you don’t know me
Hip-hop on my shoulders like the demons or the sheriff
Or the stick you use for measurin’, way too sick for medicine

[Hook: Talib Kweli & Styles P]
All my rap friends went crazy I’m the last one left
All my street homies crazy I’m the last one right
(Last ones, left right)
(Last ones, left right)
All my rap friends went crazy I’m the last one left
All my street homies crazy I’m the last one right
(Last ones, left right)
(Last ones, left right)

[Verse 4: Styles P]
All my street homies crazy I’m the last one right
Hatin’ cocksuckers hope I see the flash one night
‘Bout peace but I’ma grab my mask tonight
Man standin’, I’ma be the last one right
I rhyme wicked, I sit still, my mind vivid
Analyze the times and all of the signs with it
Pump fake the snakes and the rats and the swine with ’em
Smoke watch stars and go on the line with ’em, ghost

[Outro]
Oh, that my words were written
Oh, that they were inscribed in a book
Oh, that with an iron pen and lead they were engraved in the rock forever
Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just
Whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable
If there is any excellence, if there is anything worth of praise
Think about these things

Cold War Kids – Love Is Mystical (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
And when my heart won’t break
An empty space between my lungs
And when my knees won’t shake
I’ll drink to find inspiration
Cause I’m a red blooded man
When I can’t see behind the sun (I can’t see behind the sun)
A supernatural plan
Is coming to meet me now

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Living life with no need for the brakes
Something happens when I lean on my mistakes

[Chorus 1]
Love is mystical
Love will break the chains
You might feel invincible
And you might be afraid
Light in darkness will show you the way
Give you the power to believe again

[Verse 2]
Cause I’m a rational man
And I can see how far I’ve come (I can see how far I’ve come)
But I don’t know where to stand
Or who’s coming to meet me now

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Living life with no need for the brakes
Something happens when I lean on my mistakes
If the words are true
And the words reveal the same
I come alive when I don’t even think

[Chorus 1]
Love is mystical
Love will break the chains
You might feel invincible
And you might be afraid
Light in darkness will show you the way
Give you the power to believe again

[Bridge]
Oh, can’t you hear the future is calling
For heaven’s sake
It’s either hell or high water
Let’s get outta this place
I feel your skeptical eyes
On my mental state
I lift my hands to the sky
And I lower the stakes, oh yeah
And I lower the stakes, oh yeah
And I lower the stakes

[Chorus 2]
Love is mystical
Do you feel the same?
Love is irresistible
It’s calling out your name
Light in darkness will show you the way
Give you the power to believe again
Give you the power to believe again
Give you the power to believe again
Give you the power to believe again
Give you the power to believe again

[Outro]
To believe again
To believe again

Cold War Kids – Can We Hang On? (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
I’ve come here nine times asking you do not make it ten
I’m peeling off all the armor that protected my skin
Apologize, I’m laying down my ego to rest
Could you be mine forever just in case it exists?

[Chorus 1]
I think about the old days
What we’ve been through to survive
Do we get better with time?
Tell me I’m wrong

[Verse 2]
Looking back to the start
Who we were when we met
This box of pictures tells a story
When we fight, we forget
And I can barely recognize us
Back then we were obsessed
Can we cut out this madness and get back to the best?

[Chorus 2]
Think about the old days
What we’ve been through to survive
Do we get better with time?
Tell me I’m wrong
I’m looking to you always
We follow the same guiding light
Passing like ships in the night
Can we hang on?
Can we hang on?

[Post-Chorus]
Can we hang on?
Can we hang on?
Can we hang on?

[Bridge]
This could’ve gone either way
If one of us had walked
If I’d gone off, and you caved in
And we broke it off
I’d be lost
I’d be chasing some broke down dream
I’d be bored to death
But we cannot stay forever young and out of our heads
Out of our heads

[Chorus 3]
I’ll think about tomorrow
If I can get through tonight
I know that we’ll be alright
Can we be strong?
I’m looking to you always
Even though we’re like ships in the night
Don’t you go passing me by
Can we hang on?
Can we hang on?

[Post-Chorus]
Can we hang on?
Can we hang on?
Can we hang on?

[Outro]
You can find it
If you’re dying to live
If you want to know the secret, hang on
You can find it
If you’re dying to live
If you want to know the secret, hang on
You can find it
If you’re dying to live
If you want to know the secret, hang on

Cold War Kids – So Tied Up (feat. Bishop Briggs) (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
You can’t cut me loose until you show me
I told you the truth about the old me
And now you use confession as the proof
Do what you have to do
Go ahead and act the fool

[Pre Chorus 1]
What if in the end
You want so bad to forgive
But you cannot forget

[Chorus 1]
So (so tied up)
We’ve been here before
I’m so (so tied up)
You want something more
Lover, best friend, my worst enemy
You know I won’t let you get away

[Verse 2]
I get you to swerve out of the fast lane
You still got champagne running through your veins
You dare me to step up and challenge you
Neither one of us can stand to lose
Stand to lose

[Pre Chorus 2]
Remember we said, it’d be like after the rain
Washes away our sins
They never said that love is a twisted game
And no one ever wins

[Chorus 1]
So (so tied up)
We’ve been here before
So (so tied up)
You want something more
Lover, best friend, my worst enemy
You know I won’t let you get away

[Bridge]
So, so, so tied up
So, so, so, so tied up
So, so, so tied up
So, so, so, so tied up

[Verse 3]
You threw me a rope
Opposites attract
I’m self absorbed and you’re superficial
We wound each other up
Being true to yourself could never be enough

[Chorus 2]
(So, so, so tied up) I tried to let go
(So, so, so, so tied up) We’ve been here before
Lover, best friend, my worst enemy
You know I won’t let you get away

[Outro]
So tied up
So tied up
So tied up
So tied up

Cold War Kids – Restless (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
People wonder, people talk
We’re supposed to settle down
How we ever got this far
Without our feet touching the ground
What time is it now where you are?
We follow beats with different drums
We’re looking at the same star
It is a talent staying young

[Pre-Chorus 1]
So why you think we both
Run around in circles
Walk through fire
Nothing hurts us

[Chorus]
Every mountain you climb takes you further away
Overcome a lifetime, every day
No, we can’t help it
We’re always restless
Now you’re wired then you’re tired
There is never a break
You only come alive at the thrill of the chase
No, we can’t help it
We’re always restless

[Verse 2]
Try to keep it all up in the air
You ruin it when you ask why
You know it’s not that I don’t care
I don’t get jealous, I get free
Everything good comes back to me
It seems like wherever you are
Is just a better place to be

[Pre-Chorus 2]
So why you think we both
Run around in circles
Will you meet me
In the middle?

[Chorus]
Every mountain you climb takes you further away
Overcome a lifetime, every day
No, we can’t help it
We’re always restless
Now you’re wired then you’re tired
There is never a break
You only come alive at the thrill of the chase
No, we can’t help it
We’re always restless

[Bridge]
We already know the ending
When the credits roll down slow
I’ll hurry back
I’ll hurry back
I’ll hurry back
To you

[Chorus]
Every mountain you climb takes you further away
Overcome a lifetime, every day
No, we can’t help it
We’re always restless
Now you’re wired then you’re tired
There is never a break
You only come alive at the thrill of the chase
No, we can’t help it
We’re always restless

[Outro]
I’ll hurry back
I’ll hurry back
I’ll hurry back
(Restless, restless, I feel restless)
I’ll hurry back (restless)
I’ll hurry (restless) back
(I feel) I’ll hurry (restless) back
I feel restless
Restless, restless

Cold War Kids – La River (La Divine Album)

On the LA river
On the LA river
I know it’s familiar
But tell me why you wanna stay in New York
Why you wanna stay in New York
But you don’t know anyone
And you can’t find the right chord
On the LA river
On the LA river
Come on, come on, come on
On the LA river

Cold War Kids – No Reason To Run (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
In the mirror I see my face
I’ve got to let this go
What if all my decisions are fear based?
What if I lose control?
I’m asking for an intervention
I’ve tried to fly solo
It’s not a question of whether I will fall, it’s how hard I hit the floor

[Chorus]
When did I feel it?
How did I know that you were the one?
I am defeated
I got no reason to run, no reason to run

[Verse 2]
I wanna be part of the movement
Somebody sign me up
Have you ever felt so authentic?
Like you belong in the club
Freedom is overrated
I’m not gonna come undone
I can’t lose my motivation
Laying all day in the sun

[Chorus]
When did I feel it?
How did I know that you were the one?
I am defeated
I got no reason to run, no reason to run

[Bridge]
Don’t wanna hear your prayers
Don’t reminisce on glory days
Fight the tears, yeah I’m okay
I’m like a cro-magnon walking out of my cave
I have evolved like a fish growing legs
Woke like a lightbulb clicked in my brain
I am changed, yeah I have changed
I got you
And I’m never gonna be the same

[Chorus]
When did I feel it? (When did I feel it?)
How did I know that you were the one?
I am defeated (I am defeated)
I got no reason to run, no reason to run

[Outro]
Stay by my side
No reason to run
So in love, so alive
No reason to run
Stay by my side
No reason to run
So in love, so alive
No reason to run
Stay by my side
No reason to run
So in love, so alive
I got no reason to run
Stay by my side
No, no reason to run
So in love, so alive
No reason to run

Cold War Kids – Open Up The Heavens (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
Secrets ain’t no good
Bad guys keep on lying
I’m like Robin Hood
I’ve made myself an island
I’m hiding in the shade
I go dark on summer days
This is the price of my freedom

[Pre-Chorus]
Cars, boats, airplanes
I’m going insane

[Chorus]
Do you know how long I’ll wait for you?
Till I’m black and blue
And do you think we all hide from the truth?
In ways, I do

[Verse 2]
No I’m not looking back no more
The past is close behind
I yelped a 5-star mole
Got me a passport and a driver
My job is laying low
A camouflage flamingo
In disguise at the border

[Pre-Chorus]
Cars, boats, airplanes
I’m going insane

[Chorus]
Do you know how long I’ll wait for you?
Till I’m black and blue
And do you think we all hide from the truth?
In ways, I do

[Bridge]
Open up the heavens, we’re kicking down the gate
We ask you real, real nice
Will you let us stay?
Open up the heavens, we’re kicking down the gate
You smile real, real wide
And slap us in the face

[Chorus]
Do you know how long I’ll wait for you?
Till I’m black and blue
And do you think we all hide from the truth?
In ways, I do

[Break]

[Chorus]
Do you know how long I’ll wait for you?
Till I’m black and blue
And do you think we all hide from the truth?
In ways, I do

[Outro]
Open up the heavens, kicking down the gate
We’re asking real, real nice
Will you let us stay?
Open up the heavens, kicking down the gate
You smile real, real wide
And slap us in the face

Cold War Kids – Invincible (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
Detached from the violence
In paradise, we’re chilled to the bone
It only takes a moment of silence
We stare in disbelief at our phones

[Verse 2]
We cried out for justice
Now it’s just a fairytale
Like Santa Claus on Christmas
Is it just a wasted prayer?

[Pre-Chorus]
And no
I don’t feel invincible anymore

[Chorus]
Why can’t I get closer?
Fall from my bed
I can feel you suffer
See I’m seeing red
Can’t get you out of my head
Can’t get you out of my head

[Verse 2]
Your beautiful body
Watching arrows fall from above
What if we attack like an army?
The only weapon we use is love

[Pre-Chorus]
And no
I don’t feel invincible anymore

[Chorus]
Why can’t I get closer?
Fall from my bed
I can feel you suffer
See I’m seeing red
Can’t get you out of my head
Can’t get you out of my head

[Bridge]
Oh
I don’t feel invincible
Invincible
I don’t feel invincible
Invincible
Invincible
I don’t feel invincible
Invincible

[Outro]
Why are we still talking?
Heard what you said
Now nothing is shocking
Can’t get you out of my head
Invincible
Can’t get you out of my head
Invincible
Can’t get you out of my head

Cold War Kids – Wilshire Protest (La Divine Album)

I am marching with the protest
I got so much to say, but I’m only here to witness
There’s a war inside my head
And I’m surrendering to weakness
We’re separated by steel and glass
In traffic trapped on the freeway, every body is a DJ
Looking down at our phones for the fastest way to get home
Don’t text me there should be no, I can wait
My chemical’s are spiking like a lie detector
Dopamine, serotonin, happiness is not the answer
We dream of being a true spirit
We are divided by false Gods and hyped up leaders
We binge on the mood sticking on the bleachers
We worship talent, but we don’t see if anybody can even see it
First you must believe it
So keep your nosebleed seats I’d rather be irrelevant
What if I crossover and nobody remembers it?
Will we stay together?
Even if I never get discovered?
This is the west coast dreams will make a line
This is the promise land, the gold rush
And I’m about to find out

Cold War Kids – Luck Down (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
We’re fireworks
We shoot so high
But tell me what becomes of the rising sun
That burns before it shines

[Chorus]
Now the same thing happens every time
And now the same thing happens every time
You’re going, bottoms up
And you get down
You’re going, bottoms up
And you get down on your luck

[Verse 2]
You’re not the first
To touch the sky
Well I can try to save you from the fall
Or be your alibi

[Chorus]
Now the same thing happens every time
And now the same thing happens every time
You’re going, bottoms up
And you get down
You’re going, bottoms up
And you get down on your luck

[Bridge]
You got me trapped, it’s Kafkaesque
You’re a true romantic wreck
Friends don’t let friends suffer alone
You’re gonna drag me down instead

[Chorus]
Now the same thing happens every time
And now the same thing happens every time
You’re going, bottoms up
And you get down
You’re going, bottoms up
And you get down

[Outro]
You’re going, bottoms up
You’re down and down and down on your luck
I won’t lecture you on Lexapro
You won’t hear me out, Celexa no
You’d rather medicate with every pour
I’m looking out for you
It’s you that I adore

Cold War Kids – Ordinary Idols (La Divine Album)

[Verse 1]
I spiral down again
Such a struggle just to keep an ordinary love
Ain’t got the time for friends
Why am I working so hard and barely keeping up?

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Who remains when you drop?
Who to call when it stops?
I spiral down again
Somebody protect me or I’m gone

[Chorus]
Why would you idolize me?
There’s nothing I got that you don’t
You keep on fantasizing
I’ll always be the underdog
Give me more
Give me more
I’m the one you that you ignored
Give me more
Give me more
I’m the one you that you ignored

[Verse 2]
Where’d you find your confidence?
Are you willing to make a fool out of yourself?
It’s a curse of common sense
We all wanna be something different, someone else

[Pre-Chorus 2]
You become what you watch
What I learned can’t be taught
Imitation is not a sin
You are only guilty if you’re caught

[Chorus]
Why would you idolize me?
There’s nothing I got that you don’t
You keep on fantasizing
I’ll always be the underdog
Give me more
Give me more
I’m the one you that you ignored
Give me more
Give me more
I’m the one you that you ignored

[Bridge]
This city’s made for dreaming
It’s like a Garden of Eden
Before the apple eating
We would just sleep and drink and play all day
But you will never fall in love
Oh you wanna be lifted up
You just wanna fall in love
No you will never fall in love

[Chorus]
Why would you idolize me?
There’s nothing I got that you don’t
Obsessing, fantasizing
I’ll always be the underdog
Give me more
Give me more
Give me more, give me more, give me more
I’m the one you that you ignored

Cold War Kids – Cameras Always On (La Divine Album)

I can’t live in my mind
But I can’t be everything to you at the same time
I want to be famous in your eyes
But the camera’s always on
The camera’s always on

Cold War Kids – Part Of The Night (La Divine Album)

We are a part of the night
Part of the night
You see me through my darkest times
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
I feel you when I close my eyes
I hate to get all emotional
The separation leaves us vulnerable
I’m so aware of what you must think of me
I used to have so many tricks up my sleeve
Wish I could be the one who’s shining, who’s always honest
Instead of feel daze driving to right my wrongs
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
You see me through my darkest times
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
I feel you when I close my eyes
I guess you knew what you were getting into
I’m temperamental and it kinda reckons
Will we divide and then category
Who set out, who set out to live two separate dreams
Do your friends say I’m playing the artist card?
But they don’t sympathize when it gets too hard
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
You see me through my darkest times
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
I feel you when I close my eyes
Careful not to overexpose
Do you remember what we started this for?
The damage we gave up is bigger than us
It was a vision built from the ground up
So it’s ours to crush
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
You see me through my darkest times
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
You see me through my darkest times
We are a part of the night
Part of the night
I feel you when I close my eyes
We are a part of the night
Part of the night, part of the night, part of the night that I need you
We are a part of the night
Part of the night that I need you
Part of the night, part of the night, part of the night that I need you

Cold War Kids – Free To Breathe (La Divine Album)

So why should I believe that everything will be alright?
That everything will be alright
If only we were free to breathe
And why should I believe that everything will be alright?
That everything will be alright
Imagine how good we could be
We like to drink with our feet on the fire
We like to argue the meaning of life
Like brothers, we know how to fight
It’s on our shoulders to set the world right
What’s the difference if we disagree?
Is heaven above? Is hell underneath?
Doesn’t change the news on the streets
Doesn’t bring us closer to peace
So why should I believe that everything will be alright?
That everything will be alright
If only we were free to breathe
So why should I believe that everything will be alright?
That everything will be alright
Imagine how good we could be
Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah
What kinda father leaves his kids in the rain?
What kinda God would not explain?
If this life is all that we get
We better hope something good comes next
The world is changing
Can you feel the tension?
If you’re not angry, you must not be listening
The world is changing
Can you feel the tension?
If you’re not angry, you must not be listening

Imelda May – Call Me (Life Love Flesh Blood Deluxe Edition Album)

Put it down then I pick it back up
Praying for your name to pop up
Telling me that your still in love
Still in love with me

No matter how hard I hope
No matter how much I want
No matter how bad I’m broke
You still don’t

Call, call, call, call me
You’ve taken all the time you need
If our love, if our love, if our love, means anything
Baby please call, call, call, call me

Can’t sleep I’m scared to dream
I’m remembering everything
That you said, that you said to me
When I was yours and you were mine and I didn’t have to wait all night for you to

Call, call, call, call me
You’ve taken all the time you need
If our love, if our love, if our love, means anything
Baby please call, call, call, call me

Don’t you miss me
Don’t you need me
Don’t you leave me this way
Aren’t you lonely
Don’t you want me
How many times must I say

Call, call, call, call me
You’ve taken all the time you need
If our love, if our love, if our love, means anything
Baby please call, call, call, call me
Oh call, call, call, call me
If our love, if our love, if our love, means anything
Baby please call, call, call, call me

Imelda May – Black Tears (feat. Jeff Beck) (Life Love Flesh Blood Deluxe Edition Album)

Black tears
One will fall for every good year
Inside I’m dying
Outside I’m crying black tears

Your kiss killed me on that night
As your lips left a bitter taste
And inside I’m dying
Outside I’m crying black tears

How did it all go wrong
We seemed to have it all
But it’s broken
And I’m running
And I’m scared
So I pray to God above
It’s a sin when we don’t love
It’s so quiet
Can you hear me
Are you there

Black tears
Please be gone so I can see clear
Keep calm and carry on
But inside I’m dying
Outside I’m crying black tears

How did it all go wrong
We seemed to have it all
But now it’s broken
And I’m running
And I’m scared, so scared
So I pray to God above
‘Cause it’s a sin when we don’t love
It’s so quiet
Can you hear me
Are you there

Black tears
One will fall for every good year
Rolling down my face
Inside I’m dying
Outside I’m crying, crying, crying black tears

Imelda May – Should’ve Been You (Life Love Flesh Blood Deluxe Edition Album)

I could tell you all the things I do for you
But it’s no surprise and you just roll your eyes and say
"Here we go again, she’s gonna moan again"

I should spare your love, just a thing or two
But you don’t disguise it when I’m just white noise
And it’s done before it begins
’cause your temper’s getting thin

But there’s just one thing that I wanna know
Just one little thing before I go
Before I go

It’s who takes care of me?
Tell me who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you
Should’ve been you

Do you realize? No you never will
’cause your head’s held high and you got your pride
I got a little of mine still
Yeah, the bit you couldn’t kill

I’ll never blame you and I always will
I can’t explain it but it hurts like Hell
And I’m feeling so alone
Yeah, I’m lonely to the bone

But there’s just one thing that I wanna know
Just one little thing before I go
Before I go

It’s who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you
Oh!
Should’ve been you

Oh!

And I’m angry
And I’m sad
I’m the best thing, that you ever had
All I wanted, was your touch
But you told me, what I wanted was just too much

Oh, who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you
Oh!
Should’ve been you
Should’ve been you
Should’ve been you

Joey Feek – Strong Enough To Cry (If Not For You Album)

You don’t have to hold it all inside you
Or try to keep your feelings hid
You don’t need to bottle your emotions
Of the way your daddy did

I can see inside you’re hurtin’
Even though your eyes are dry
If you let a tear roll down your cheek
Honey, that don’t mean you’re weak
You’re just strong enough to cry

They’re not just little drops of water
That show the way you feel
They turn coal into diamonds
And iron into steel

I know you think that you’ll be weaker
If a tear falls from your eye
Oh, but you don’t understand
A woman needs a man
Who’s is strong enough to cry

Every rock that we can lean on
It’s not just shaped out of stone
It didn’t get that way by settin’
Their dry as a bone

It took a million years of changin’
As the rain fell on it from the sky
You want to be that rock for me
Honey, I need you to be strong enough to cry

They’re not just little drops of water
That show the way you feel
They turn coal into diamonds
And iron into steel

I know you think that you’ll be weaker
If a tear falls from your eye
Oh, but you don’t understand
A woman needs a man
Who’s is strong enough to cry

Honey, you don’t understand
A woman needs a man
That’s strong enough to cry

Joey Feek – That’s Important To Me (If Not For You Album)

Not plannin’ my day around the T.V. set
Payin’ our bills and stayin’ out of debt
That’s important to me
That’s important to me

Openin’ the windows and lettin’ in air
Holdin’ hands when we’re sayin’ a prayer
That’s important to me
Yeah that’s important to me

Havin’ somebody to share my life
Loving my husband and bein’ a wife
And the very best mother I can be
That’s important to me

Tellin’ the truth and bein’ real
And feeding my family a home cooked meal
That’s important to me
That’s important to me

Plantin’ a garden and watchin’ it grow
Keepin’ it country on the radio
That’s important to me
Yeah that’s important to me

Always havin’ you to hold
Bein’ beside you when we grow old
And they’ll plant us ‘neath that big oak tree
That’s important to me

Always havin’ you to hold
Bein’ beside you when we grow old
And they’ll plant us ‘neath that big oak tree

Believin’ our dreams,
Still bein’ ourselves if we ever get there
That’s important to me
That’s important to me
Yeah, that’s important to me
Hm that’s important to me

Joey Feek – If Not For You (If Not For You Album)

If not for you I would know nothing of
This balcony, this panorama love.
The world would seem a dreary thing
Four walls without a window
A room without a view
If not for you.

Like sunlight pouring through the sorry rain
You made me see the colors I contain.
You held me to the light of love
As if I were a diamond.
I would be merely blue
If not for you.

The moon would rise, the stars would shine
Just like they always do
But not for me, not for me
If not for you.

Joey Feek – Red (If Not For You Album)

Red

If all the clothes you wear are camouflage

And you drive around in a dually Dodge
With a blue-tick hound ridin’ in the bed
You’re red, you’re red

If you’re into sittin’ in a tree stand for daylight
With an eight point buck in your sights
And not for sport but to keep your fed
You’re red, man you’re red

You’re red, white and blue
Country through and through

If your arms are tan and your chest is white
And your idea of eatin’ right
Is turnip greens, fried chicken and cornbread
You’re red, You’re red

Now, if you don’t know who your congressmen are
But you can name every driver in NASCAR
And you cried when you heard Earnhardt was dead
You’re red, man you’re red

You’re red, white and blue
Country through and through

You’re American lovin’, flag wavin’, northern-southern family raisin’
Workin’, playin’, heaven prayin’ country through and through

If Haggard sings your favorite song
And you learned the difference between right and wrong
With a hickory switch out behind the she’d
You’re red, you’re red

If your letter jacket says FFA
And you spend your summers bailin’ hay
With a John Deere cap sittin upon your head
You’re red, man you’re red
You’re red, you’re red
R-E-D

Joey Feek – See You There (If Not For You Album)

You waited all summer, for that night to come around
Mom was in the kitchen, and I was laying down
We said we’d meet up later, at the county fair
As you closed the door, you hollered See you there

See you there, see you there
There was broken glass and blue lights everywhere
You were lying by your jeep
We held our breath and said a prayer
We could hardly bare, to see you there

No one had to tell us, that you were hurt real bad
To life flight you to Indy was the only chance you had
Mama climbed in with you, she knew I was scared
As she closed the door, she hollered See you there

See you there, see you there
There were lines and tubes and doctors everywhere
Daddy stayed up all night long, right beside you in the chair
He could hardly bare, to see you there

We sang in the Garden at our little country church
There must’ve been a mile of cars, following your hearse

You’d think after 10 years, it wouldn’t make me cry
But it’s almost like you must’ve known, that night you said goodbye
That you were headed up to heaven, not to the county fair
When you closed the door and hollered See you there

See you there, see you there
See you there, oh, I’ll see you there

Wincent Weiss – Musik Sein (Irgendwas Gegen Die Stille Album)

Was für eine Nacht
Bin mit ‘nem Schädel aufgewacht
Gieß den Kaffee wie in Zeitlupe ins Glas
Dem wenn du magst kannst du noch bleiben
Folgt ein unsicheres Schweigen
Du schließt die Tür, es wird still ich schau dir nach
Und mit dir Trompeten, Geigen und Chöre
Irgendwas gegen die Stille hier
Dann Paukenschläge auf Trommelwirbel
Und ein leises Klavier
Ey da müsste Musik sein
Überall wo du bist
Denn wenn es am Schönsten ist
Spiel es wieder und wieder
Ey da müsste Musik sein
Wo auch immer du bist
Denn wenn es am Schönsten ist
Und wenn es am Schönsten ist
Das letzte Mal am Meer
‘Ne halbe Ewigkeit schon her
Pack meine Besten und das Nötigste zusammen
Endlich mal raus aus unserer Heimat
Sie wird im Spiegel immer kleiner
Und schon da vorne küsst das Salzwasser den Sand
Und mit uns Trompeten, Geigen und Chöre
Irgendwas gegen die Stille hier
Dann Paukenschläge auf Trommelwirbel
Und ein leises Klavier
Ey da müsste Musik sein
Überall wo du bist
Und wenn es am Schönsten ist
Spiel es wieder und wieder
Ey da müsste Musik sein
Wo auch immer du bist
Denn wenn es am Schönsten ist
Spiel es wieder und wieder
Spiel sie wieder und wieder
Wieder und wieder
Spiel es wieder und wieder
Ey da müsste Musik sein
Wenn wir uns verlieben
Wenn das Leben uns umhaut
Wenn wir besoffen vor Glück sind
Müsste da nicht Musik sein
Ey da müsste Musik sein
Wo auch immer du bist
Und wenn es am Schönsten ist
Spiel es wieder und wieder
Ey da müsste Musik sein (Ey da müsste Musik sein)
Wo auch immer du bist (Wo auch immer du bist)
Auch wenn es am Schönsten ist (Und wenn es am Schönsten ist)
Spiel es wieder und wieder
Spiel es wieder und wieder (Wieder und wieder)
Wieder und wieder (Wieder und wieder)
Spiel es wieder und wieder
Ey da müsste Musik sein
Ey da müsste Musik sein

Wincent Weiss – Feuerwerk (Irgendwas Gegen Die Stille Album)

Viertel vor – verdammt, schon wieder spät dran!
Ich muss renn’n, da vorne kommt schon meine Bahn
Ja, ich weiß, es heißt: „Keiner wartet auf dich."
Wir treffen uns im gleichen Laden wie seit Jahr’n
Erzählen uns, was für ein’n Stress wir haben
Scheiß drauf, Kopf aus, erinnerst du dich?

Wir hab’n uns mal geschworen:
„Ey, wir warten nie auf morgen!"
Wir sind doch immer noch dieselben Clowns
Und Helden unserer Welt

Lass uns leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk – oh-oh
Als wenn es nur für heute wär’ – oh-oh
Denn dieser Augenblick kommt nie zurück
Lass uns leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk – oh-oh
Die ganze Welt kann uns gehör’n – oh-oh
Verbrenn’n die Raketen Stück für Stück
Und leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk
Feuerwerk

Die Augen brenn’n, doch ich hör’ auf mein Gefühl
Geh’ noch nicht rein, weil ich nichts verpassen will
Du weiß auch genau, wir hab’n das alles nur einmal

Wir hab’n uns mal geschworen:
„Ey, wir warten nie auf morgen!"
Wir sind doch immer noch dieselben Clowns
Und Helden uns’rer Welt

Lass uns leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk – oh-oh
Als wenn es nur für heute wär’ – oh-oh
Denn dieser Augenblick kommt nie zurück
Lass uns leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk – oh-oh
Die ganze Welt kann uns gehör’n – oh-oh
Verbrenn’n die Raketen Stück für Stück
Und leben wie ein

Feuerwerk und alles ist so schnell vorbei
Asche und Erinnerung ist, was morgen überbleibt
Ist egal, dann halt nochmal
Da ist noch so viel mehr!

Lass uns leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk – oh-oh
Als wenn es nur für heute wär’ – oh-oh
Denn dieser Augenblick kommt nie zurück
Lass uns leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk – oh-oh
Die ganze Welt kann uns gehör’n – oh-oh
Verbrenn’n die Raketen Stück für Stück
Und leben wie ein Feuerwerk, Feuerwerk
Feuerwerk

Und leben wie ein Feuerwerk,

Wincent Weiss – Ein Jahr (Irgendwas Gegen Die Stille Album)

Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht, um dich zu vergessen
Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht, um dich zu vergessen
Meine Schritte sind schwer, ich kämpfe mich durch meine Straße
Meine Füße werden nass, weil ich wieder mal die falschen Schuhe trage
Vorm Café an der Ecke steht der Tisch, an dem wir sonst immer saßen
Irgendwie anders, es ist alles so anders
Oh, der Wind tut weh, ich vergrabe mich in meiner Jacke
Ich steh’ frierend vor der Tür ohne Plan, wo ich meine Schlüssel habe
Und würdest du mich seh’n, würdest du wahrscheinlich grade schief lachen
Irgendwie anders, es ist alles so anders
Ich hab’ so sehr versucht, es zu verdrängen
Doch es hört einfach nicht auf zu brennen
Oh, die Wahrheit ist
Dass ich dich immer noch vermiss’
Obwohl ein ganzes Jahr vergangen ist
Und mir eigentlich rein gar nichts fehlt
Oh, die Wahrheit ist
Dass ich dich immer noch vermiss’
Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht, um dich zu vergessen
Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht, um dich zu vergessen
Wenn der Wecker morgens klingelt, lieg’ ich immer noch auf der rechten Seite
Und die Frau gegenüber steht wie jeden Tag rauchend an der Scheibe
Dass unsre Zeit verdammt schön war, seh’ ich nur noch auf Bildern
Irgendwie anders, es ist alles so anders
Ich hab’ so sehr versucht, es zu verdrängen
Doch es hört einfach nicht auf zu brennen
Oh, die Wahrheit ist
Dass ich dich immer noch vermiss’
Obwohl ein ganzes Jahr vergangen ist
Und mir eigentlich rein gar nichts fehlt
Oh, die Wahrheit ist
Dass ich dich immer noch vermiss’
Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht, um dich zu vergessen
Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht
Ich hab’ so sehr versucht, es zu verdrängen
Doch es hört einfach nicht auf zu brennen
Oh, die Wahrheit ist
Dass ich dich immer noch vermiss’
Obwohl ein ganzes Jahr vergangen ist
Und mir eigentlich rein gar nichts fehlt
Oh, die Wahrheit ist
Dass ich dich immer noch vermiss’
Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht, um dich zu vergessen
Ich dachte, ein Jahr reicht

Wincent Weiss – Frische Luft (Irgendwas Gegen Die Stille Album)

Ich bin noch immer jung aus den alten Geschichten
Auch wenn’s im Norden so viel Neues gibt
Ob sich was ändert, wäre mal spannend zu wissen
Doch wenn ich bleibe, dann verzweifel’ ich
Hey, verbind mir die Augen, ich komm’ blind zurecht
Kenn’ jeden Winkel hier längst auswendig
Fühl’ mich dort fremd, wo mein zuhause ist
Ob’s wieder besser wird, glaub’ ich nicht
Ich werd’ es sicherlich ein Stückchen vermissen
Doch es wäre besser zu geh’n
Ich brauch’ frische Luft
Damit ich wieder bisschen atmen kann
Viel zu lange gewollt, was ich nicht haben kann
Mit jedem Atemzug wird mir bewusst
Ich brauch’ frische Luft
Damit ich wieder bisschen atmen kann
Hab’ zu früh aufgehört als angefangen
Nor woanders gibt es davon genug
Ich brauch’ frische Luft
Hey, seitdem wir zusammen wohnen, fühlt es sich anders an
Ich hab’ gedacht, wir werden eins zusamm’n
Jetzt bin ich froh, wenn ich mal draußen bin
Ob es besser wird, glaub’ ich nicht
Ich werd’ es sicherlich ein Stückchen vermissen
Doch es wäre besser zu geh’n
Ich brauch’ frische Luft
Damit ich wieder bisschen atmen kann
Viel zu lange gewollt, was ich nicht haben kann
Mit jedem Atemzug wird mir bewusst
Ich brauch’ frische Luft
Damit ich wieder bisschen atmen kann
Hab’ zu früh aufgehört als angefangen
Nor woanders gibt es davon genug
Ich brauch’ frische Luft
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Ich brauch’ frische Luft
Damit ich wieder bisschen atmen kann
Hab’ zu früh aufgehört als angefangen
Nor woanders gibt es davon genug
Ich brauch’ frische Luft …
