Inspirational Song Lyrics

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by FELZILLA, Aug 11, 2011.

  1. So, I haven't seen a thread about this in quite some time and being a new mod; I'm floundering to get out of my inactivity posting in General.


    WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE/MOST INSPIRATIONAL SONG LYRICS?

    Mine are:

    If the sky is the limit, then I'll build a bridge up to it.
    If I make it back, I'd still want more, more.
    If the sky is the limit, then I'll steal the air that's in it.
    I won't take it back, I'd still want more.
    I'd still want more.


    They remind me of the potential that I have and the drive it takes to reach said potential.
     
  2. "Don't ever let the world defeat you
    Don't get buried in its decay
    For it only takes a fraction of a second
    For all of this to change"

    Lullaby - Assemblage 23
     
  3. Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
    That gets me through the night.
    I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
    I'm gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.

    That's from Bon Jovi's "Have a Nice Day", which incidentally is also a life theme song for me. It's basically a 'fuck you' to everyone and everything that expects me to live by their perception of what is right/wrong for me instead of what -I- feel is right for my life. :D Complete with a smile on my face and telling them to have a nice day.
     
  4. I have many. :3 But here's one. It's called Just Like You, by Three Days Grace.

    "I could be weak
    I could be senseless
    You know I could be just like you

    You thought you were standing beside me
    You were only in my way
    You're wrong if you think that I'll be just like you"

    It always inspires me to do something great. Something that Fluffys do best. :D For too long, people tried to make me into something else. When all their plans did was fail and make me depressed, I finally put my foot down and told them to fuck off. If you don't like me, then leave me.
     
  5. *High fives Fluffy for Three Days Grace!*

    In fact, speaking of Three Days Grace:

    If you can't stand,
    The way this place is
    Take, yourself, to higher places​

    That's from their "Break" song. >>;; I like to scream that at people who complain about anything from where they're at to their life sucking. >:D
     
  6. Awake! My obdurate soul
    A star shatters the morning
    Let us undo the future
    Sail the sunset towards a new Dawn
    Unfurl the banner invictus
    Begotten in iron embrace

    Crush the tranquil mercies of catatonia
    Put to sword the palsied dog
    Abandon the I that was
    Engender the fierce spirit


    Order From Chaos - "Dawn Bringer Invictus" - An Ending in Fire (1998)​
     
  7. The Surface by Rosesdead

    The sky is clear.
    The light will shine.
    The sea is calm.
    All doubt is lost.
    All eyes are open.
    The peace is near.
    Words can't describe, what life was like.
    I was underneath the wake.
    Those darkened days, I'll leave behind.
    It was more than I could take.
    And yet, if it could happen all again, I wouldn't want it any other way.
    If I could do it all again, I wouldn't change a single thing.
    This is the start of something.
    This is the start of something new.
    I've never felt like this before.
    I never thought I would see this soar.
    Make this fight worth your time.
    Make sure you don't regret a thing. Don't regret a thing.
    Now that I'm looking down, this is the way it was meant to be.
    (As I stand here, I realize. In order to grow from what once was, all of this needed to happen. Now I'm finally where I need to be.)
    Make mistakes. Make your dreams. Live your life. Make mistakes. Live your dreams. Make this real.
    Let light rain down on me.
    These words may never describe, exactly what I felt inside.
    But I know how hard I tried and that I'll learn to make the most of this life.

     
  8. Jimmy Eat World - The Middle <-------- Click this.

    Hey, don't write yourself off yet
    It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
    Just try your best, try everything you can.
    And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away.

    It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
    Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

    Hey, you know they're all the same.
    You know you're doing better on your own, so don't buy in.
    Live right now.
    Yeah, just be yourself.
    It doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else.

    It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
    Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
    It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
    Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

    Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
    It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
    Just do your best, do everything you can.
    And don't you worry what the bitter hearts are gonna say.

    It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
    Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
    It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
    Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).


     
  9. Jumi you are my hero.
     
  10. Treachery of vengeful cruelty and power beyond greed
    Defaming the flame of veneration
    Smother that which would burn
    Accursed is the key to power and glory
    But settles envy's wages - Seek!
    That glittering gold, the slave has enslaved...

    II

    Sorrow lies unarmed and wounded
    From judgement and vengeance in flight
    Woeful is led to the "needy"
    As the victor is led to his kin
    What marvels could heroes perform
    That their gods were unable to do?
    Disgrace and betrayal plague the Blessed Ones
    As sorrow is thrown to the dogs
    Rashness retreats the Battlefather's rage
    Walls of flames and the empty glory of divinity

    III

    He who has never learned to fear
    Only can forge an ultimate freedom from
    The dying father's shattered steel
    Rebirthed to lick the hot blood cool
    (So) There Lies Your Lord!
    The Father of Victories - Lord Of Light
    (Now!) Bathe in the fire!!!

    IV

    Here I speak of Holy Things
    When the ash-wood burns and fierce flames consume...
    O sacred Gods hail this raidant Star - Hail!
    Sounding from the Noble River
    He, to be betrayed, the Son of Freedom
    Now more than the heavens
    And the Glory of the Gods matters
    The accursed key of Eternal Joy
    Unerring Sorrow deceived into whitened sepulchre
    Compelled into shame by the Hordes of Night
    Near the shore comes the charlatan
    Before altars flow with blood, illusion - treachery!
    Oaths and perjury are idle words
    Heavenly Hosts hear the vow of vengeance
    Fly home you ravens: rest now blessed hero
    There Lies Your Lord!
    The flames allure - the accursed key is cleansed
    Hojotoho! There Lies Your Lord! Hojotoho!


    Order From Chaos - There Lies Your Lord, Father Of Victories - An Ending In Fire (1998)
     
  11. Some people offered up answers
    We made out like we heard
    They were only words
    They didn't add up
    To a change in the way we were living
    And the saddest thing
    Is all of it could have been avoided

    But it was like to stop consuming's to stop being human
    And why'd I make a change if you won't?
    We're all in the same boat
    Staying afloat for the moment

    -Eyes Wide Open
    Gotye


     
  12. This one is pretty rad too, but I don't think anyone here remembers it.

    Mr. Big - Green Tinted Sixties Mind <---- Click it!

    She just woke up, but she's still tired
    Is that the telephone ringing?
    The curtains can't hold back the light
    That's reaching into her dreams
    Down in her heart
    If it had fingers, it'd be tearing it apart

    You be lookin' groovy
    In a sixties movie
    Maybe tell the press you died
    Little legend baby
    Try your very best to hide
    A green-tinted sixties mind

    She keeps some memories locked away
    But they are always escaping
    neclgect won't make them fade away
    They're reaching into her dreams
    Down in her heart
    Don't need fingers to be tearing it apart

    Gotta face the day
    There is no other way
    To clear the fog inside your mind
    Fill it up with dreams
    But all that you can seem to find
    A green-tinted sixties mind

    Hangin' out with Janis
    Movin' to Atlantis
    Could've made it if you tried
    What's the point of force
    It's easy as a horse to ride
    A green-tinted sixties mind

    You be looking groovy
    In a sixties movie
    Maybe tell the press you died
    Little legend baby
    Try your very best to hide
    A green-tinted sixties mind
    -U can't hide-

    Oh yeah... and let's not forget this bad ass song.

    The Wallflowers - One Headlight <---- Click it!


    So long ago, I don't remember when
    That's when they say I lost my only friend
    Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
    As I listened through the cemetery trees

    I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
    The long broken arm of human law
    Now it always seemed such a waste
    She always had a pretty face
    So I wondered how she hung around this place

    Hey, come on try a little
    Nothing is forever
    There's got to be something better than
    In the middle
    But me & Cinderella,
    We put it all together
    We can drive it home
    With one headlight

    She said it's cold
    It feels like Independence Day
    And I can't break away from this parade
    But there's got to be an opening
    Somewhere here in front of me
    Through this maze of ugliness and greed
    And I seen the sun up ahead
    At the county line bridge
    Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
    We'll run until she's out of breath
    She ran until there's nothin' left
    She hit the end-it's just her window ledge

    Hey, come on try a little
    Nothing is forever
    There's got to be something better than
    In the middle
    But me & Cinderella,
    We put it all together
    We can drive it home
    With one headlight

    Well this place is old
    It feels just like a beat up truck
    I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
    Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
    This place is always such a mess
    Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
    I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else
    Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
    But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
    I think her death it must be killin' me

    Hey, come on try a little
    Nothing is forever
    There's got to be something better than
    In the middle
    But me & Cinderella,
    We put it all together
    We can drive it home
    With one headlight​
     
  13. Helloween - Don't run for cover. Power metal is always my go to sub genre for inspiration.

    Listen here!


    You hide, won't fight
    Avoid the daylight
    Give in, won't win
    No try to make it right

    Why don't you stop crying
    Stop your painful dying
    Why don't you give your life a sense

    One game, one aim
    But you're always sleeping
    One light so bright
    In darkness you're creeping

    Why don't you use your head
    Step out of your warm bed
    And stop being on anxious rat

    Bridge:
    Run - for your destination
    Fly - to the sun
    Don't give a damn what the people may say
    It's like a chain on your leg
    When you always look back
    If you don't risk anything one day you'll pay

    Chorus:
    Don't run for cover
    Don't cry alone
    Make a step on your stairway
    One step closer to what you live for
    Don't run for cover
    Don't throw away
    The only chance that you got
    To be the fire in a hot life you choose

    No pride, no right ?
    In your heart is more strength
    You know, I know
    Your destiny's in your hand

    Now you have this time
    To survive don't be blind
    In this world where so many can't see

    Bridge:
    Try - to catch the key
    Make - that you can see
    The light of your life your way to go
     
  14. Pfuu, Jumi. I had the entire CBox listening to that the other day. xD

    This has meaning to me.

    "Father of mine
    Tell me where did you go
    You had the world inside your hand
    But you did not seem to know
    Father of mine
    Tell me what do you see
    When you look back at your wasted life
    And you don't see me"

    Father of Mine - Everclear
     
  15. Also, I think some of you may like this:



    Little Red - Coca Cola

    My one and only advice... is cold Coca Cola and ice.
    With a lemon slice on my lip,
    no I never waste a sip.

    But I like you, and I know
    I know you like it too.

    Mmmm it's so fine.
    Yeah it's alright!
    Ohh, that lovely flavour.
    In my mind, I'm gonna savour.

    The taste on your lips
    I never waste a kiss.

    I like you...
    and I know, I know you like it too.


    It's like sugar high whenever you come around
    But the higher I fly the greater the come down
    I keep coming back for more,
    of that taste I adore.
    Taste like you...
    and I know... I know you like it too.

    My one and only advice is coke, coca cola and ice.
    My one and only advice is coke, coca cola and ice.

    Hey do you like it?
    OH yeah i like it!
    How much do you like it?
    You know how I like it!

    Woahhhh.. ice cold Cola!
     
  16. I took a couple days to actually think about what all inspires me, so to speak.

    a. Puscifer - Momma Sed

    Wake up, son of mine.
    Momma got something to tell you.
    Changes come.
    Life will have its way with your pride, son.
    Take it like a man.

    Hang on, son of mine.
    A storm is blowing on the horizon.

    Changes come.
    Keep your dignity.
    Take the high road,
    Take it like a man.

    Listen up, son of mine.
    Momma got something to tell you.
    All about growing pains.
    Life will pound away where the light don't shine, son.

    Take it like a man.
    Suck it up, son of mine.
    Thunder blowing up the horizon.

    Changes come.
    Keep your dignity.
    Take the high road.
    Take it like a man.

    Momma said like the rain,
    this too shall pass like a kidney stone.
    It's just a broken heart, son.
    This pain will pass away.


    To me, this song is basically one of those "you gotta suck it up and get past it" kind of songs. Life throws you many curve balls... how you react to those defines you as a person. "Take the high road, take it like a man".

    b. Looptroop Rockers - Professional Dreamers

    Living a dream don't wanna wake up

    I never dreamed about getting paid
    I dreamed that the people never forget the name,Looptroop
    I dreamed about getting fame the hiphop way I read "getting up"
    And it modeled my work ethics
    I got up every morning starting putting words together
    Words from my dreams about living in a better world together
    Sounds like work forever but that's cool my work is a dream
    And my work is to dream so you can call me a dreamer
    Call me dream weaver naive believer
    I'm still an achiever professional dreamer

    Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, 'cause we're
    Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, living

    I got memories for sale autobiography
    Everything that's real now started as somebody's dream
    A vision of the future notes on a wrinkled piece of paper
    Like my feet getting too big for these shoes, see you later
    And regardless if I win or loose I gave it a shot
    In one way I won anyway whether you like it or not
    And the story's not over my daugther need me to stay
    Like child I make the rest up along the way
    To all beautiful losers have faith and pride
    Don't let nobody kill that creative drive
    And to my friends I love you til' next time you see me
    Keep conquering the world word to douglas keep dreaming

    Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, 'cause we're
    Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, living

    Since 92 we've been on this trip with no end station
    Seems hopeless but this is the destination
    Still got planes to board tracks to record
    But we're not greedy couldn't ask for more
    Suddenly my dream became a nightmare
    The music woke me up now I'm back in this right here
    And I'm a team player I need these guys
    Thanks for holdin the seat let's reach the skies
    From big citis to outbacks we're backpackers
    No plans too big for these dream catchers
    So as ling as we breathe we'll still strive
    'Cause it's the dream that's keeping us alive

    Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, 'cause we're
    Living the dream, don't wanna wake up, living


    TL;DR? Don't give up on your dreams! If these guys can make their dreams come true, why can't any of us? Never give up!
     
  17. There was a smoldering thunder
    Vicious corruption of the purity on the Ether
    We once believed in the Spiritual induction
    Cause and Myth of a grand knowledge of Fury
    and once I walked in the Deadly path
    and once I drifted below the crisp infidel winds
    There was Pestilence and Rain made of Tears
    A Coven of Hunters and King-priest
    and a hollow structure of fallen dreams and Megalomania
    infects the Crypts, of my Reign of Despair
    The Beast Within, the warm breath of my inner Demons
    Corrosion of the last delusion
    Infraworld and Infrafate I speak to you,
    My Elder Ancestry
    I remain strong and strong is the will
    To conquer and expulse
    the decimators of the stolen Prosperity,
    Retribution of the Lost Years...
