    Kreator: Violent Revelution

    Society failed to tolerate me
    And I have failed to tolerate society
    Still I can't find what you adore
    Inside I hear the echoes of an inner war
    Nothing can take the horror from me
    Your sick world the loss of all morality
    My hate has grown as strong as my confusion
    My only hope my only solution
    is a Violent Revolution

    Violent Revolution, Violent Revolution
    Reason for the people to destroy

    I do not need a cause for my rage
    I just despise the nature of the human race
    When all I see is repulsion and hate
    Violence becomes my only friend, my saving grace
    When love is lost beyond your control
    A pale shadow of lust can not enlight your soul
    So keep your ice cold bitter illusions
    I don't need your empty world my only solution
    is a Violent Revolution

    Violent Revolution, Violent Revolution
    Reason for the people to destroy

    Beauty is no more it's all gone
    And utopia will not come
    Trust I can not feel, only pain
    And my burning mind has gone insane


    Children Of Bodom: Deadnight Warrior

    Before the Daylight falls to rest,
    into shadows,
    Soon I'll be on a black-night trip,
    I'll fly across the sky.

    It's not a lonely flight,
    This one'll be black,
    The death lies always in the sky,
    It reflect hatred in my eyes.

    [Keyboard stuff]

    If the daylight dies, the Shadow's are falling on me.
    Then I'll be at your side, -?? [Maybe "Then I'll becoming wild"]
    Always in the moonlight shadow,
    I can't get out,
    lost in time for eternity.

    [Lead part]

    You're the guard of the dead ones,
    In the night I'll find you to drink your blood,
    You're the Dead night's fresh meat in my arms,
    The dead by night's close by!

    Don't wake it up, call my name, it's death!
    Set them all on a trip of pain,
    I can't wait!

    [Kick ass solo!]

    [After solo this part comes again]

    It's such a lonely flight,
    This one'll be black,
    The death lies always in the sky,
    It reflect hatred in my eyes.

    It is such a pain to allow, -???
    being hard to wound, -???
    Always in the moonlight shadow [echo: shadow],
    I can't get out!

    Die Ärzte - Nicht allein (Punkrock)

    Möchtest Du Dich ändern? Fehlt Dir dazu der Mut?
    Weil es Dir nicht wirklich schlecht geht, nur leider auch nicht gut.
    Wartest Du schon lange auf den großen Augenblick?
    Fühlst Du Dich betrogen? Willst Du Dein Geld zurück?
    Du hast so viele Träume, doch Du denkst, es wär zu spät.
    und Du glaubst, Du bist der Einzige, de.m es so geht.

    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Legionen und wir werden bei Dir sein.
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Millionen und wir werden noch mehr sein.

    Fragst Du Dich nicht manchmal: Was wär gewesen, wenn...?
    Möchtest Du Dein Leben noch mal von vorn beginnen?
    Du denkst, die Anderen wären glücklich, weil Du sie nie weinen siehst,
    und Du glaubst, Du wärst der Einzige, den sie jemals vertrieben haben,
    aus de.m Paradies.

    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Legionen und wir werden bei Dir sein.
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Millionen und wir werden noch mehr sein-
    -oder Nichtsein ist die Frage, die sich stellt,
    und die Angst zu versagen ist der Alptraum,
    der uns alle seit 2000 Jahren quält.

    Wärst Du gern erfolgreich? Wärst Du gerne schön,
    und würd' es Dir gefallen, im Mittelpunkt zu stehen?
    Möchtest Du gern zeigen, was alles in Dir steckt?
    Wärst Du gerne glücklich. Wärst Du gern perfekt?
    Wir wolln nicht länger warten, wir haben es so satt.
    Wo sind all die schönen Dinge, die die Werbung jedem einzelnen,
    von uns versprochen hat?

    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Legionen und wir werden bei Dir sein.
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Millionen und wir werden noch mehr sein.

    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Legionen und wir werden bei Dir sein.
    Du bist nicht allein (ohoho).
    Nicht allein (ohoho).
    Wir sind Millionen und wir werden noch mehr sein.



    Translation (not literally):

    Die Aerzte - Not Allone

    Do you want to change yourself? Do you not have the courage for it?
    'Cause you`re not doing bad, but unfortunatily also not well.
    Have you been waiting for the great moment for so long?
    Do you feel betrayed? Want back yout money?
    You have so many dreams, but you think it is too late.
    And you think you're the only one with this problems?

    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are legions and will be at your side
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are millions and will be even more

    Do you sometimes wonder: "What if..."
    Do you want to start your life right from the beginning one more time?
    You think the others are so happy, because you never see them cry
    and you think you are the only one they ever drived out-
    Of the paradise!

    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are legions and will be at your side
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are millions and will be even more

    To be or not to be is the question risin' up
    and the fear of failing is the nightmare,
    which tortured all of us for 2000 years.

    Do you want to have sucess? Do you want to be beautyful?
    And wanna be the Center of the world?
    Do you want to show, what is inside you?
    Do you want to be happy, want to be perfect?
    We aren't wanting to wait any longer, we so feed up.
    Where all this great things, comercials proved to every single one of us?

    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are legions and will be at your side
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are millions and will be even more

    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are legions and will be at your side
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    You are not alone (ohoho)
    We are millions and will be even more

    This is one of my favorites . .

    Cradle of Filth - Dusk And Her Embrace
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    When the sun has wept upon the waveless lake
    And the mists steal in with ease
    Covened wolves are their eerie dissonant napes
    In adoration of the moon and thee

    "They call as I to thee...."

    And I will come, as if in dream
    My languid, dark and lustrous Malaresian Queen
    Of vengeful, ancient breed
    Gilded with the pelts of many enemies
    Erishkigal, raven-haired
    Thy seduction haunts the castle in erotic despair
    I can taste thy scent by candlelight
    Legs of porcelain traced and laced to their lair
    Appease the beast on spattered sheets
    Dyed unearthly red as sobriety weeps

    Nocternity....
    She shall come for me

    A black velvet painting sprung to elegant life
    Like a poignant Madonna perverted to night
    And I have ridden from the westerning light
    To expend my lust
    Tear away the funereal dress
    Know that I will escape from my death
    Surrendered to the splendour of her sharpened caress

    Lo! The pale moonlight
    Weaves a poetic spell of vital death and decline
    Of mist and moth and the hunger inside
    Kisses took to fever and the fever, demise

    "Through twilight, darkness and moonrise
    My scarlet tears will run
    As stolen blood and whispered love
    Of fantasies undone"

    Countess swathed in ebony
    And snow-white balletic grace
    Rouge-filmed lips procure the wish
    For lust and her disgrace

    Dusk and her embrace

    We shall flit through the shadows
    Like a dream of (were)wolves in the snow
    Under deadly nightshade
    Still warmed with the kill's afterglow

    Beneath the stars thy flesh bedevils me
    (Beneath the stars taste the death in me)
    Bequeath to me thy fiery kiss
    To sever thin mortality

    Elizabeth
    My heart is thine
    Thy fragrant words Warm within like wine....

    "Let me come to thee
    With eyes like Asphodel
    Moon-glancing, loose desires free
    To writhe under my spell"

    Ereshkigal, raven-haired
    Thy seduction haunts the castle in erotic despair
    I know thy scent by candlelight
    Immortal flesh I yearn to share
    Appease the beast on spattered sheets
    Dyed malefic red as sobriety weeps
    Nocternity
    She shall come for me....

    Unfurl thy limbs breathless succubus
    How the full embosomed fog
    Imparts the night to us....

    well, i love shitloads of songs tbh and most of the time i dont think in terms of "best or favorite song"

    kinda hard to pick so i'll give you two of the many...

    Pantera - Walk:

    Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistence
    One step from lashing out at you...
    You want in to get under my skin
    And call yourself a friend
    I've got more friends like you
    What do I do?

    Is there no standard anymore?
    What it takes, who I am, where I've been
    Belong
    You can't be something you're not
    Be yourself, by yourself
    Stay away from me
    A lesson learned in life
    Known from the dawn of time

    Respect, walk, what do you say??
    Respect, walk, are you talking to me???

    Run your mouth when I'm not around
    It's easy to achieve
    You cry to weak friends that sympathize

    Can you hear the violins playing your song?
    Those same friends tell me your every word

    Is there no standard anymore?
    What it takes, who I am, where I've been
    Belong
    You can't be something you're not
    Be yourself, by yourself
    Stay away from me
    A lesson learned in life
    Known from the dawn of time

    Respect, walk, what do you say??
    Respect, walk, are you talking to me???

    Are you talking to me?
    Walk on home boy...




    Metallica - Sanitarium:

    Welcome to where time stands still
    No one leaves and no one will
    Moon is full, never seems to change
    Just labeled mentally deranged
    Dream the same thing every night
    I see our freedom in my sight
    No locked doors, no windows barred
    No things to make my brain seem scarred

    Sleep, my friend, and you will see
    That dream is my reality
    They keep me locked up in this cage
    Can't they see it's why my brain says “rage”

    Sanitarium, leave me be
    Sanitarium, just leave me alone

    Build my fear of what's out there
    Cannot breathe the open air
    Whisper things into my brain
    Assuring me that I'm insane
    They think our heads are in their hands
    But violent use brings violent plans
    Keep him tied, it makes him well
    He's getting better, can't you tell?

    No more can they keep us in
    Listen, damn it, we will win
    They see it right, they see it well
    But they think this saves us from our hell

    Sanitarium, leave me be
    Sanitarium, just leave me alone
    Sanitarium, just leave me alone

    Fear of living on
    Natives getting restless now
    Mutiny in the air
    Got some death to do
    Mirror stares back hard
    “Kill,” it's such a friendly word
    Seems the only way
    For reaching out again

    Paul Simon - Punky's Dilemma

    Wish I was a Kellogg's Cornflake
    Floatin' in my bowl takin' movies,
    Relaxin' awhile, livin' in style,
    Talkin' to a raisin who 'casionn'ly plays LA.
    Casually glancing at his toupee.

    Wish I was an English muffin
    Bout to make the most out of a toaster.
    I'd ease myself down, comin' up brown.
    I prefer boysenberry more than any ordinary jam.
    I'm a "Citizens for Boysenberry Jam" fan.

    Ah, South California.

    If I become a first lieutenant
    Would you put my photo on your piano?
    To Maryjane-- Best wishes, Martin.

    (Old Roger draft-dodger leavin' by the basement door),
    Everybody knows what he's
    Tippy-toeing down there for.

    Artist: Fuel
    Album: Sunburn
    Title: Sunburn


    The sky was dark this morning
    Not a bird in the trees
    And silence hung suspicious and anxious
    Like a blanket covered scream
    And you were gone
    You were not there for me
    And I cursed the sky and begged the sun to
    Fall all over me
    This life's not living, baby
    Living ain't free
    If I can't find my way back to me
    Let the sun fall down over me
    Let the sun fall down
    All my friends are searching
    Quiet, desperately
    Loo into their eyes you'll see the faithless crying
    Save me, save me, save me
    And what are they to feel
    And who are they to be
    And what am I to do with, do with me, but let the sun
    Fall all over me
    This life's not living, baby
    Living ain't free
    If I can't find my way back to me
    Let the sun fall down over me
    Let the sun fall down
    Until my eyes cry out
    'Til my head is free from doubt
    'Til my lungs sigh right out
    'Til I'm wiser
    Let the sun
    Fall all over me
    This life's not living, baby
    Living ain't free
    If I can't find my way back to me
    Let the sun fall down over me
    Let the sun fall down

    My favorite Rage Against the Machine song

    No Shelter
    Album: Godzilla Soundtrack


    The main attraction, distraction
    got your number than number than numb
    Empty your pockets son, they got you thinking that
    What you need is what they selling
    Make you think that buying is rebelling
    From the theaters to malls on every shore
    The thin line between entertainment and war
    The frontline is everywhere, there be no shelter here
    Spielberg the nightmare works so push it far
    Amistad was a ship, the truth was feathered and tarred
    Memories erased and burned and scarred
    Trade in your history for a VCR

    Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
    Fourth Reich culture, Americana
    Chained to the dream they got you searching for
    The thin line between entertainment and war

    There be no shelter here
    The frontline is everywhere

    Hospitals not profit full
    the market bulls got pockets full
    To advertise some hip disguise
    View the world from American eyes
    the poor adore keep fighting for more
    the thin line between entertainment and war
    They fix the need, develop the taste
    Buy their products or get laid to waste
    Coca-Cola is back in the veins of Saigon
    And Rambo too, he got a dope pair of Nikes on
    Godzilla pure mother fucking filler
    keep your eyes off the real killer

    Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
    Fourth Reich culture, Americana
    Chained to the dream they got you searching for
    The thin line between entertainment and war

    American eyes, American eyes....
    View the world from American eyes
    Bury the past, rob us blind
    And leave nothing behind

    Just stare ( x 4 )

    Relive the nightmare

    Yeah!

    One of my other favorites:

    Linkin Park - Braking The Habbit

    Memories consume
    Like opening the wound
    I'm picking me apart again
    You all assume
    I'm safe here in my room
    Unless I try to start again

    I don't want to be the one
    The battles always choose
    'Cause inside I realize
    That I'm the one confused

    I don't know what's worth fighting for
    Or why I have to scream
    I don't know why I instigate
    And say what I don't mean
    I don't know how I got this way
    I know it's not alright
    So I'm breaking the habit
    I'm breaking the habit
    Tonight

    Clutching my cure
    I tightly lock the door
    I try to catch my breath again
    I hurt much more
    Than anytime before
    I had no options left again

    I dont want to be the one
    Who battles always choose
    'Cause inside I realize
    That I'm the one confused

    I don't know what's worth fighting for
    Or why I have to scream
    I don't know why I instigate
    And say what I don't mean
    I don't know how I got this way
    I'll never be alright
    So, I'm breaking the habit
    I'm breaking the habit
    Tonight

    I'll paint it on the walls
    'Cause I'm the one at fault
    I'll never fight again
    And this is how it ends

    I don't know what's worth fighting for
    Or why I have to scream
    But now I have some clarity
    to show you what I mean
    I don't know how I got this way
    I'll never be alright
    So, I'm breaking the habit
    I'm breaking the habit
    I’m breaking the habit
    Tonight

    Devin Townsend's Strapping Young Lad - AAA

    Devy in the corner of his teen year
    Born to run away
    Children in the middle with the village idiot
    So he never made the potty grade

    Now maybe he pulled a little closer
    Cold in a mousy way
    Boom boom as they came a little closer
    Put a bolt in the curse today

    Now Devy has to eat it in his own way
    Broke in a dirty way
    Boom boom is the beating that I hear in the night
    But no one hears, so no one knows and no one fucks with me

    Devy wants a word with the master
    I got no need to run away
    Down on the road isn't easy
    But I never would back away

    Boom boom in the morning with the night sounds
    No way to run away
    Boom boom as the boredom of monogamy
    Hits one more time...

    No one must know...
    No one must know...
    No one must know...
    No one must know this machine...

    Devy got a taste of some black shit
    Born in another way
    And it probably would have been easy
    But it never worked out that way

    Boom boom in the corner with the well-soiled
    Bound to amalgamate
    Boom boom as it kills the inhibitions
    ...no more games
    No one must know...

    Phish - Split Open and Melt

    In the morning I pack up my gear
    And toss it in my carryall
    Run the wide load to the lip
    And watch the big core crack and glow

    In the evening I undo my belt
    Split open and melt

    I wake up on my stomach
    With my face between my hands
    And crawl along the floor toward the doorway
    Jumping to my feet
    I try to put myself together
    But I feel it in my knees
    And the room begins to spin
    And I slip and bump my head and raise a welt
    Split open and melt

    We breathe deep
    In a steam dream
    And plunge below the water line
    Down, down, down
    Between beams
    To the gloom room
    Among the seaweed and the slime
    Down, down, down
    Melt


    Sometimes I'm a damn hippy... :D

    While it's definitely not my absolute favorite, there's one by Concrete Blonde that fits the mood seemingly set up by previous posters:
    [Edit]: whoops! Forgot the name:

    Poisonous Garden

    The stars above shine down below
    the fever you hold on this night
    deathly cold
    I can feel from this side of the door
    I can feel Eleanor
    He said, sun don't rise...
    he said sun don't shine
    he said don't bring tomorrow
    to justify tonight
    The moon is full-the stars are bright
    and the sky is a poisonous garden
    tonight.
    Sip your Tequila. Give me some time
    to unlearn all I've learned for the
    spring to unwind
    and then came your sweet gentle mouth
    I began to move mine.
    They knew with the dawn-
    they knew with the day
    they knew what they had
    would be young naked prey
    and attacked from all sides
    by a world filled with
    poison and hate
    Eleanor trembles. Eleanor moans.
    Somehow, this body is someone
    she always has known
    she cries tears on his chest
    O so silent and slow-
    She said please don't go. Please don't go-
    and she cried and she died in his arms
    and he cried nevermore
    the moon is full, the stars are bright
    and the sky is a poisonous garden
    tonight.

    Six little ducks
    That I once knew
    Short ones, fat ones,
    Skinny ones, too.

    But the one little duck
    With the feather on his back
    He ruled the others
    With his quack, quack, quack

    Down to the river
    They would go
    A wibble wobble wibble wobble
    To and fro
    But the one little duck
    With the feather on his back
    He ruled the others
    With his quack, quack, quack.

    Into the water they would dive
    The little one first and then the other five
    But the one little duck
    With the feather on his back
    He ruled the others
    With his quack, quack, quack.

    Out of the river they would go
    A wibble wobble wibble wobble
    To and fro
    But the one little duck
    With the feather on his back
    He ruled the others
    With his quack, quack, quack.

    Mohrg's was funny, and considering his personality, not much of a surprise. The rest of you guys need to watch the spam, it's good for one person to throw something crazy out there, after that it's not funny anymore, and gets annoying as hell fast.

    The Birthday Massacre - "Blue"

    Plastic blue invitations in my room
    I've been waiting here for you
    Reservations made for two
    Sunlight fading

    Black tongues speak faster than the car can crash
    you supply the rumours, and I'll provide the wrath
    Romance is breaking every heart in two,
    Casting shadows in the pale shade of blue

    Plastic blue conversations in mij room
    Saving every tear for you
    Trusting every word untrue
    Twilight fading

    Fate changes faster than the death of light
    You supply the envy and I'll provide the spit
    Reflections cutting every facein two,
    Casting shadows in the pale shade of blue

    Hatred
    Obsessing me
    Hatred
    Possessing me

    Anger
    Burning me
    Anger
    Turning me

    Into someone I don't
    Into someone I don't know
    Into someone I don't know

    Rage
    That's shaking me
    Rage
    That's making me

    Into someone I don't
    Into someone I don't know
    Into someone I don't know

    I don't know



    I'll kill you tonight
    I'll kill you tonight
    I'll kill you tonight
    I'll fuckin' kill you

    And now you die!

    Oh you're dead now!

    Yeeeaaah-Hoooooo!

    I got a pickax in the trunk of my car
    I'll put it on the grinder to get it real sharp
    There's an ugly green monster in my head
    Won't leave me alone
    Until you're dead

    I called your house but you couldn't be reached
    So I took the D train to Brighton Beach
    You're doing the thing with a brand new man
    Checking out the stars
    Screwing on the sand

    Kill you
    Kill you
    Punishment
    Kill you

    Took some steriods and adrenaline
    Finlandia vodka and hallucinagens
    Mixed it with blood and orange juice
    Liquid protein and ice cubes

    Staring down at your sweaty embraces
    Put my tool right through your faces
    Well buddyboy I hope you enjoyed her
    'Cause I'm an equal opportunity destroyer

    Kill you
    Kill you
    Punishment
    Kill you

    I'll kill you tonight
    I'll kill you tonight
    I'll kill you tonight
    I'll fuckin' kill you

    O Freunde, nicht diese Töne!
    Sondern laßt uns angenehmere anstimmen
    Und freudenvollere!

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium,
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische, dein Heiligtum;
    Deine Zauber binden wieder,
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    Wem der große Wurf gelungen,
    Eines Freundes Freund zu sein,
    Wer ein holdes Weib errungen,
    Mische seinen Jubel ein!
    Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele
    Sein nennt auf d.em Erdenrund!
    Und wer's nie gekonnt, der stehle
    Weinend sich aus diesem Bund.

    Freude trinken alle wesen
    An den Brüsten der Natur;
    Alle Guten, alle Bösen
    Folgen ihrer Rosenspur,
    Küsse gab sie uns und Reben,
    Einen Freund, geprüft im Tod;
    Wollust ward d.em Wurm gegeben,
    Und der Cherub steht vor Gott!

    Froh, wie seine Sonnen fliegen
    Durch des Himmels Prächt'gen Plan,
    Laufet, Brüder, eure Bahn,
    Freudig, wie ein Held zum Siegen.

    Seid umschlungen, Millionen,
    Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
    Brüder! über'm Sternenzelt
    Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen,
    Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?
    Ahnest du den Schöpfer, Welt?
    Such' ihn über'm Sternenzelt!
    über Sternen muß er wohnen.


    _______________________________

    O friends! Not these sounds!
    But let us strike up more pleasant sounds and more joyful!

    Joy, o wondrous spark divine,
    Daughter of Elysium,
    Drunk with fire now we enter,
    Heavenly one, your holy shrine.
    Your magic powers join again
    What fashion strictly did divide;
    Brotherhood unites all men
    Where your gentle wing's spread wide.

    The man who's been so fortunate
    To become the friend of a friend,
    The man who has won a fair woman -
    To the rejoicing let him add his voice.
    The man who calls but a single soul
    Somewhere in the world his own!
    And he who never managed this -
    Let him steal forth from our throng!

    Joy is drunk by every creature
    From Nature's fair and charming breast;
    Every being, good or evil,
    Follows in her rosy steps.
    Kisses she gave to us, and vines,
    And one good friend, tried in death;
    The serpent she endowed with base desire
    And the cherub stands before God.

    Gladly as His suns do fly
    Through the heavens' splendid plan,
    Run now, brothers, your own course,
    Joyful like a conquering hero

    Embrace each other now, you millions!
    The kiss is for the whole wide world!
    Brothers - over the starry firmament
    A beloved Father must surely dwell.

    Do you come crashing down, you millions?
    Do you sense the Creators presence, world?
    Seek Him above the starry firmament,
    For above the stars he surely dwells.
