Have you heard the album that song is from? I think thats one of the weaker songs on that disc (minority opinion). 'Sonnet' is my favourite song by The Verve. Same disc. Listen to it.

The CD with BSS on it was not great IMO. I remember hearing the song Sonnet. Thats the only other tune that sounds familiar though.

The Verve "experiement" was an attempt to listen to something other than Jock Jams 1,2 & 3.

BSS was getting a lot of airplay at a time that was tough for me personally. I listen to it now mainly as a reminder that things change and possibly improve.

Enigma - Silence Must Be Heard

People talk too much, for what they have to say
Words, without a meaning, just fading away

Silence must be heard!

I have snippets of song lyrics scrawled all over the back of my binder - a useful bored-in-class hobby. Here's my two favorites:

"The north is to south
What the clock is to time.
There's east and there's west
And there's everywhere life.
I know I was born and
I know that I'll die.
The in-between is mine.
I am mine." - Pearl Jam, "I Am Mine"

--and--

"Money is the key to end all your woes
Your ups, your downs, your highs and your lows
Won't you tell me the last time that love bought ya clothes?
It's like that, and that's the way it is." - Run-D.M.C. - "It's Like That"

if you have never heard the acoustic version of this song i HIGHLY recommend it....amazing.

don't follow - alice in chains

Hey, I ain't never coming home
Hey, I'll just wander my own road
Hey, I can't meet you here tomorrow
Say goodbye don't follow
Misery so hollow
Hey you, you're livin' life full throttle
Hey you, pass me down that bottle, yeah
Hey you, you can't shake me round now
I get so lost and don't know how, yeah
And it hurts to care, I'm going down
Forgot my woman, lost my friends
Things I'd done and where I've been
Sleep in sweat the mirrors cold
See my face it's growin' old
Scared to death no reason why
Do whatever to get me by
Think about the things I said
Read the page it's cold and dead
Take me home (5x)
Say goodbye Don't follow

After Forever

Have you ever thought about your soul - can it be saved?
Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave
Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you?
Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?

When you think about death do you lose your breath or do you keep your cool?
Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope - do you think he's a fool?
Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light and I've changed my ways
And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared at the end of our days

Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say
If they knew you believe in God above?
They should realize before they criticize
that God is the only way to love

Is your mind so small that you have to fall
In with the pack wherever they run
Will you still sneer when death is near
And say they may as well worship the sun?

I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ
I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe?
You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve

Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone
Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one
The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate
Or will you still jeer at all you hear? Yes! I think it's too late.


-- Black Sabbath, yes Ozzy and THAT Black Sabbath

a23 - Horizon

Hours
Spiral and coil into black
Some remembered, some forever gone

Tragic
We never get them all back
The relentless march of time must still go on

CHORUS
The tide is turning
Horizons burning
Your days are numbered
Your future has crumbled

Forgotten
Events obscured by the past
Without remembrance did they occur at all?

Losing
At best a tenuous grasp
And nothing below us to break the fall

(CH)

Imagine
What moments those last hours hold
Things we missed that might have changed our lives

Stranded
With no way to get home
The light around us starting to subside

"Woke Up This Morning", Alabama 3 (A3)

[And after three days of drinking with Larry Love, I jes get an inkling to go on home. So I'm walking down Coldharbour Lane, head hung low, three or four in the morning, the sun’s coming up and the birds are out singing; I let mahself into mah pad, wend my way up that spiral staircase and stretch out nice on the chesterfield. Pithecanthropus Erectus already on the CD player, and I just push that remote button to Sublimity, and I listen to the sweet sculptural rhythms of Charles Mingus, and JR Monterose and Jackie McLean duet on those saxophones and the sound makes its way out the window, mingling with the traffic noises outside, y'know, and all of a sudden I’m overcome by a feeling of brief mortality. 'Cos I’m getting on in the world, coming up on forty-one years, forty-one stony grey steps towards the grave, y'know: the box awaits its grisly load, and I’m gonna be food for worms. And just like Charles Mingus wrote that beautiful piece of music, ‘Epitaph’, for Eric Dolphy, I say ‘So long, Eric; so long, John Coltrane and Charles Mingus; so long, Duke Ellington and Lester Young; so long, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald; so long, Jimmy Reed; so long, Muddy Waters; and so long, Howlin' Wolf.’]


Woke up this morning
Got yourself a gun
Your Mama always said you'd be
The Chosen One.

She said, ‘You're one in a million
You've got to burn to shine,’
But you were born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning
All that love had gone.
Your Papa never told you
About right and wrong.

But you're looking good, baby,
I believe that you're feeling fine—
Shame about it—
Born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.


You woke up this morning,
The world turned upside down—
Lord above—
Thing's ain't been the same
Since the Blues walked into town.

But you're one in a million
'Cos you've got that shotgun shine—
Shame about it—
Born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.


You woke up this morning
Got a blue moon in your eyes
Woke up this morning
Got a blue moon in your eyes
So sorry. Goddamn—
Goddamn shame about it

Mr D Wayne Love:

When you woke up this morning, everything was gone.
By half past ten your head was going ding-dong
ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes,
like some voice trying to tell you there was something you should know.
Last night you was flying but today you're so low
Ain't it times like these that make you wonder if you'll ever know
the meaning of things as they appear to the others;
wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers.
Don't you wish you didn't function, wish you didn't think
beyond the next paycheck and the next little drink?
Well you do, so make up your mind to go on
'cos when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone.


When you woke up this morning
(Woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning
(Woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning
You wanna be the Chosen One.
Yes, you know it. You just can't help yourself.

When you woke up this morning
(Woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning
(Woke up this morning)
Woke up this morning
[And you did it, girl]
You got yourself a gun.
