I hope I never lose my Wallet

Never lose my wallet, it would put me in a spot.
Never lose my sense, at least how much I’ve got.
Never lose my family, never lose my friends.
Never lose my youth, I hope it never ends.
Hope I never lose my wallet.
And hell I hope to hell and only time will tell
I hope I never lose my mind.
Or lose my self somewhere not too far from here that nobody can find.
Never lose my hair, I would hate to go without.
Never lose direction and wander all about.
Never lose my courage, never lose my hope.
Never lose my girl, it would make it hard to cope.
Hope I never lose my wallet.
And last of all, not least of all
I hope I never lose my mind.
Or lose myself somwhere not too far from here that nobody can find.

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Hope I Never Lose my Wallet

The title of this song was, for quite a long time, the tag-line of my blog. This song means a lot to me. It is rather simple but carries a lot of meaning behind it and something that I have been able to relate to for a long time.

I’ve met some people along the way…

I’ve met some people along the way,
Some of them split some of them stay,
Some of them walk some walk on by,
I’ve got a few friends I’ll love till I die
From all of these people I try to learn,
Some of them shine some of them burn,
Some of them rise some of them fall,
For good or bad I’ve known them all

-The Bouncing Souls

Preciso amar as pessoas como…

preciso amar as pessoas como se não houvesse amanhã
Porque se você parar para pensar, na verdade não há

Legião Urbana

Same Thing

SAME THING

Somewhere between prayer and revolution
between Jesus and Huey P. Newton
that’s where you find Jonny 5 shoot shootin
water guns at the audience while ya scootin’
your gluteous max due to the fact that I’m tootin’

on the horn gonna warn you that I’m rootin’
for the other team in the culture wars
so I stab the beast belly while the vulture roars

YO JOE!

let it blow with convulsive force
til walls fall off their false supports
til Jericho’s aircraft carriers alter course

and all brave young Americans are called ashore
cause we’ve already lost the war they keep wagin
splattering the streets in battles that keep ragin
bloodyin each page of the story that we’re studying
each day the same just the names keep changin

Hook:

saying the same things over again
repeatin the same slogans we don’t know where we’ve been

We’ve been all over the globe on our government’s funds
leavin man woman and child dead bloody and numb

saying the same things over again
repeatin the same slogans we don’t know where we’ve been
we’ve been overthrowing leaders with legitimate views
democratically elected but we didn’t approve….

verse 2

How many times can the line divide
how many wars to uphold some pride
fears uncontrolled just swoll the tide
of blood in the streets while the people die

Ima keep on tryin
longs as suffering’s multiplyin
and why not

souls get tossed and left out to rot
my backs broad enough to help left your cross

as long as you help with mine
the process of healing will take some time
to see the pain on your face is the same as mine
not a game or a race but the stake is high
we maintain our mistakes for the sake of sides
as long as it takes I”ll say it one more time

as long as it takes I’ll say it one more time
as long as it takes I’ll say it one more time

Hook

verse three

we need money for healthcare and public welfare
free mumia and Leonard Peltier

human needs not corporate greed
drop the debt and legalize weed

we say yes to grassroots organization
no to neoliberal globalization
bring the troops back to the USA
and shut down guantanamo Bay

the same things over again
my throat’s so sore from shoutin no war for the soldiers again
lookin for cloud cover when the explosions begin
lookin the crowd over wonder if you where we’ve been
we’ve been all over the globe Iran to Nicaragua

guatamala Angola grenada

Dominican republic Haiti chile

It don’t stop and it won’t stop unless we keep
Hook

Who let’em overthrow Jacobo Arbenz

Who let’em overthrow Mohammad Mosaddeq

Who let’em assassinate Salvador Allende

I didn’t let them but they did it anyway

Who let’em overthrow Kwame Nkrumah

Who let’em overthrow Aristide

Who let’em assassinate Oscar Romero

I didn’t let’em but they did indeed!

don’t let them assassinate Hugo Chavez

don’t let them assassinate Evo Morales

bring back Martin, Malcolm, Medgar,

Hampton, Goodman, Schwerner, Chaney

Lyrics

Same Thing – Flobots

We cut the legs off of our pants…

we cut the legs off of our pants
threw our shoes into the ocean
sit back and wave through the daylight
sit back and wave through the daylight

slip and slide on subway grates
these shoes are poor mans ice skates
fall through like change in the daylight
fall through like change in the daylight

i miss yellow lines in my roads
some color on monochrome
maybe i’ll paint them in myself
maybe i’ll paint them in myself

these sidewalks liquid then stone
building walls and an old pay phone
it rings like all through the daylight
it rings like all through the daylight

and in the daylight we can hitchhike to maine
i hope that someday i’ll see without these frames
and in the daylight i don’t pick up my phone
cause in the daylight anywhere feels like home

I have five clocks in my life
and only one has the time right
i’ll just unplug it for today
ill just unplug it for today

open hydrant rolled down windows
this car might make a good old boat
and float down grand street in daylight
and float down grand street in daylight

and with just half of a sunburn
new yellow lines that i earned
step back and here comes the night time
step back and here comes the night time

and in the daylight we can hitchhike to maine
i hope that someday i’ll see without these frames
and in the daylight i don’t pick up my phone
cause in the daylight anywhere feels like home

Daylight, Matt & Kim
