Best/most relevant lyrics from the last 10 years


quote:

Eye on the TV 'cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be
Like: "Killed by the husband" ...
"Drowned by the ocean" ...
"Shot by his own son" ...
"She used a poison in his tea,
Then (she) kissed him goodbye"
That's my kind of story
It's no fun til someone dies.
Don't look at me like I am a monster
Frown out your one face, but with the other (you)
Stare like a junkie into the TV
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
Watches him die, Hands to the sky cryin "why, oh why?" Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all need it too - don't lie.
Why can't we just admit it? Why can't we just admit it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'
Neither the brave nor bold Nor brightest of stories told
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'
I need to watch things die from a good safe distance

Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so why can't we just admit it?
Blood like rain fallin' down Drum on grave and ground
Part vampire, part warrior, Carnivore and voyeur
Stare at the transmittal.
Sing to the death rattle. La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie (x4)

Credulous at best Your desire to believe in Angels in the hearts of men.
But pull your head on out (of) your hippie haze And give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again
The universe is hostile So impersonal
Devour to survive So it is, so it's always been ...
We all feed on tragedy. It's like blood to a vampire. Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I.



I'm a pretty big music nerd and I really do try to find bands that have something to say. That being said... Every time I listen to Tool's Vicarious it just reminds me of everything I see on tv nowadays, and is prophetic of the world as a whole. Someone give me other songs to jam to that mean this much.

I used to listen to a lot of Tool back in high school. Maynard James Keenan (sp?) is one messed up guy, but the man can truly write some music. It's a pretty angry song, but it is absolutely fitting for today's times, especially with the absolute bull shite on television. I'll brainstorm some lyrics that are fitting, but you might be hard to top.

So while you sit and whistle "Dixie"
With your money and your power
I can hear the flowers growing
In the rubble of the towers
I hear leaders quit their lyin'
I hear babies quit their cryin'
I hear soldiers quit their dyin' One and all
I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
