How many special people change
How many lives are living strange
Where were you when we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannon ball
Where were you while we were getting high?

Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova in the sky

We were in really early and got right to the front, as the night went on we got stuck when the crowd got bigger and bigger. Anyhow, long story short, i needed the toilet. johnny marr who was in the smiths was playing guitar with them at the time and i said to my mate i just had to go to the toilet, so i jumped on stage and went over to johnny marr, mid song, and asked him where the bogs were. I was about then that my feet left the floor, haha

And here's another for you:

I'm a believer.
Well, that's not really true.
I'm more of a make-believer.
But it sort of adds up to the same thing.
Here in the lap of the Gods, neither party holds a universal truth, and our hopes are like litter in the open road for everybody to drive through.
Teetering on the swath, my physical limitations dwarf just by the wonder of living.
Brought on for no real reason other than just the wonder of life.
And now, being what I want to be catches up so fast with me.
I have to make up better and newer possibilities just to keep up with myself.
And now, nothing is a problem.
My mouth is dry from the heat, endless possible futures and the sweet promise of tomorrow is quenching my thirst.
All we need to do now..... is cheat death, for as long as we can.
So that when the day finally comes, we can pull a clean sheet from our pockets and write down all that we have achieved, all that we have seen, to make sure we have left nothing behind.
We are nothing.
We are nothing.
We are nothing.
Other than that we give away for free and we are nothing but the sum of our parts.....

We Are Nothing - Timo Maas

I love this at the moment.
Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag, I'm not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard got your picture in my hand
Saying, "if you see this girl, can you tell her where I am?"

Some try to hand me money they don't understand
I'm not broke, I'm just a broken-hearted man
I know it makes no sense, but what else can I do?
And how can I move on when I'm still in love with you?

'Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you'd come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

So I'm not moving
I'm not moving

Policeman says, "son, you can't stay here"
I said there's someone I'm waiting for if it's a day, a month, a year
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go

'Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you'd come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

So I'm not moving
I'm not moving
I'm not moving
I'm not moving

People talk about the guy
Who's waiting on a girl, oh
There are no holes in his shoes
But a big hole in his world, mmm

Maybe I'll get famous as the man who can't be moved
And maybe you won't mean to but you'll see me on the news
And you'll come running to the corner
'Cos you'll know it's just for you
I'm the man who can't be moved
I'm the man who can't be moved

'Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you'd come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

(So I'm not moving) 'Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me
(I'm not moving) And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
(I'm not moving) Thinking maybe you'd come back here to the place that we'd meet
(I'm not moving) And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

And the final of my trio of top lyrics picks is:

Thou shalt not steal if there is a direct victim
Thou shalt not worship pop idols or follow lost prophets

Thou shalt not take the names of Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer, John Hartmond, Desmond Dekker, Jim Morrisson, Jimmy Hendrix or Sid Barrett in vain.

Thou shalt not think any male over the age of 30 that plays with a child that is not their own is a paedophile, some people are just nice.
Thou shalt not read NME
Thou shalt not stop liking a band just because they became popular
Thou shalt not question Steven Fry
Thou shalt not judge a book by its cover
Thou shalt not judge lethal weapon by Danny Glover
Thou shalt not buy Coca Cola products
Thou shalt not buy Nestle products
Thou shalt not go into the woods with your boyfriends best friend, take drugs, and then cheat on him.
Thou shalt not fall in love so easily
Thou shalt not use poetry, art or music to get into girls pants... use it to get into their heads.

Thou shalt not watch Hollyoaks
Thou shalt not attend an open mic and leave as soon as you've done your sh*tty little poem or song, you self-righteous pr*ck.
Thou shalt not return to the same club or bar, week in, week out, because you once saw a girl there that you fancied; that you're never gonna f***ing talk to.

Thou shalt not put musicians and recording artists on ridiculous pedestals, no matter how great they are, or were.
The Beatles were just a band.
Led Zeppelin, just a band.
The Beach Boys, just a band.
The Sex Pistols, just a band.
The Clash, just a band.
Crass, just a band.
Minor Threat, just a band.
The Cure, were just a band.
The Smiths, just a band.
Nirvana, just a band.
The Pixies, just a band.
Oasis, just a band.
Radiohead, were just a band.
Bloc Party, just a band.
The Arctic Monkeys, just a band.
"The next big thing", just a band. (while in the video he holds up his own record cover)

Thou shalt give equal worth to tragedies that occur in non-English speaking countries as to those that occur in English speaking countries.
Thou shalt remember that guns, bitches and bling were never part of the 4 elements and never will be.

Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music
Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music
Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music
Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music

Thou shalt not Pimp My Ride.
Thou shalt not scream if you wanna go faster.
Thou shalt not move to the sound of the wickedness.
Thou shalt not make some noise for Detroit.
When i say "Hey", thou shalt not say "Ho"
When i say "Hip", thou shalt not say "Hop"
When i say, he say, she say, we say; "Make some noise...."
Kill me.

Thou shalt not quote me happy.
Thou shalt not shake it like a polaroid picture.
Thou shalt not wish your girlfriend was a freak... like me.
Thou shalt spell the word "Pheonix" P-H-E-O-N-I-X.
Not, P-H-O-E-N-I-X, regardless of what the Oxford English Dictionary tells you.

Thou shalt not express your shock at the fact that Sharon got off with Brad at a club last night by saying; "Izziiit"
Thou shalt think for yourselves.

And thou shalt always....
Thou shalt always...
Kill


Dan Le Sac - Thou Shalt Always Kill.

Beneath the old iron bridges, across the Victorian parks
And all the frightened people running home before dark
Past the Saturday morning cinema that lies crumbling to the ground
And the piss stinking shopping center in the new side of town
I've come to smell the seasons change and watch the city
As the sun goes down again

Here comes another winter of long shadows and high hopes
Here comes another winter waitin' for utopia
Waitin' for hell to freeze over

This is the land where nothing changes
The land of red buses and blue blooded babies
This is the place, where pensioners are raped
And the hearts are being cut from the welfare state
Let the poor drink the milk while the rich eat the honey
Let the bums count their blessings while they count the money

So many people can't express what's on their minds
Nobody knows them and nobody ever will
Until their backs are broken and their dreams are stolen
And they can't get what they want then they're gonna get angry

Well it ain't written in the papers, but it's written on the walls
The way this country is divided to fall
So the cranes are moving on the skyline
Trying to knock down this town

But the stains on the heartland, can never be removed
From this country that's sick, sad, and confused

Here comes another winter of long shadows and high hopes
Here comes another winter waitin' for utopia
Waitin' for hell to freeze over

The ammunition's being passed and the lords been praised
But the wars on the televisions will never be explained
All the bankers gettin' sweaty beneath their white collars
As the pound in our pocket turns into a dollar

This is the 51st state of the U.S.A.
This is the 51st state of the U.S.A.
This is the 51st state of the U.S.A.

"Fat Bottom girls , you make the rockin' world go round" has got to be the most profound rock lyric ever.
All this talk of the Waterboys reminds me that seeing Mike Scott and the Waterboys without their fiddle player has got to have been the worst show ever and a complete rip off. The show was reduced to Mike Scott playing a crap set including a gem cover of Beatles Why dont we do it in the road.
He even had the nerve to mention the fiddle player without apalogizing for his absense or the fact he was too cheap to pay for a stand in.

"And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine"

When my love said to me
Meet me down by the gallow tree
For its sad news I bring
About this old town and all that it’s suffering
Some say troubles are bound
Someday soon there gonna pull the old town down
One day we’ll return here
When the Belfast child sings again

Brother sister where are you now
I don’t look for you right through the crowd
All my life here I’ve spent
With my faith in god our church and the government
Some say troubles are bound
Someday soon there gonna pull the old town down
One day we’ll return here
When the Belfast child sings again
When the Belfast child sings again

So come back Billy won’t you come on home
Come back Mary you’ve been away so long
The streets are empty and your momma’s gone
The girls are crying it’s been oh so long
And your fathers calling come on home
Oh wont you come on home come on home

Oh come back people you’ve been gone awhile
And the war is raging on the emerald isle
There’s flesh and blood there there’s flesh and blood
All the girls are crying but all’s not lost
Well the streets are empty the streets are cold
Oh wont you come on home come on home
The streets are empty

But life goes on

One day we'll return here
When the Belfast child sings again
When the Belfast child sings again

When routine bites hard and ambitions are low
And resentment rides high but emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways, taking different roads

Then love, love will tear us apart, again
Love, love will tear us apart, again

Why is the bedroom so cold? Turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed? Our respect runs so dry
Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives

Love, love will tear us apart, again
Love, love will tear us apart, again

Do you cry out in your sleep? All my failings exposed
There's a taste in my mouth as desperation takes hold
Is it something so good just can't function no more?

But love, love will tear us apart, again
Love, love will tear us apart, again
Love, love will tear us apart, again
Love, love will tear us apart, again

You talking to me across the fence
Of common sense
How your tomato plant will win a prize,
won't that be nice,
And by the way, how's your wife?
Your holidays were spent in Spain
You went by plane
You'll go again

Have you seen me bullfight poster on the wall?
Do you know the happy memory it recalls?
Here's a photograph of me and my son, Ted
That's me cousin with his hanky on his head!
We booked in at our hotel just after two
And met a family from Bradford that we knew

Oooh, I love that melody-ah! Burp!

My pink half of the drainpipe
Separates next door from me
My pink half of the drainpipe
Oh, Mama!
Belongs to me

Rodney's main saxaphone solo, as promised

My pink half of the drainpipe
Semidetaches us
My pink half of the drainpipe
Oh, Mama!
Belongs to moi

I have a sister in Toronto who's a nurse
And I've had a bit of bother laying turf
It's life, not books, that taught me all I've learned
Whoops, nip in the oven my rice pudding's getting burnt!
Have you seen the new attachment on me drill?
I must have the cat put down, ‘cause he's ill

Hey, neighbour!

My pink half of the drainpipe
I may paint it blue
My pink half of the drainpipe
Keeps me safe from
you!

I'm a wobbly jelly, you're a pink blancmange
I'm a sherry trifle, you're a chocolate sponge
Your dad wears a paper hat, mine inflates balloons
Whoops! Boodly boop! Pop! Here comes a spoon!

My pink half of the drainpipe
Separates me from the incredibly fascinating story of your life and every day to day event in all it's minute and tedious attention to detail... And was it a Thursday or a Wednesday? Or, oh, no, it wasn't though. Oh, who cares anyway because I do not

So Norman, if you're normal, I intend to
be a freak for the rest of my life, and I shall baffle you with cabbages and rhinoceroses in the kitchen, incessant quotations from "Now We Are
Six" through the mouthpiece of Lord Snooty's giant, poisoned, electric head.

SO THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE!
