A Sight to Behold

  1. Hey GC just found these lyrics by one of my favorite bands. They really made me think and one of my thoughts was that fellow stoners might like these lyrics. So read them and if they mean anything to you feel free to comment.

    A Sight To Behold:


    Reflecting ourselves in the blood of all the beings we slay
    Misunderstand each other, out of control we remain
    There is a mystery, we're facing a sight to behold
    This is what we make of the world, we throw everything away

    The way we all behave is not understandable
    It is so sad to see the wealth of our planet fade away
    We all behave like children, taking off the head of our teddy bear
    To see what's inside, taking, not giving back
    We drain the oceans and suck all the blood out of the soil
    We spend the time we have left fighting and killing each other
    Lust for comfort, entertainment becomes an obsession
    And there is so much time to kill

    The way I see things is so simple
    The fact I'm walking standing on this land
    Exhausted is the realm of nature, friends are dying
    The living creatures on our side
    The way I see myself so confused so sophisticated
    I have to stay away from me
    But I still don't get the point
    What's worth destroying all the worlds
    Try not to get it anymore

    You burn yourself, set fire for good
    We die eyes closed, dig our own grave now
    Tossed in the blaze naked on the flame
    Lost with no pride, drowned in the filth
    The giant snake is coming down to eat our heads
    And the flood will kill us, Mantus is rising from under

    The way I see things is so simple
    The fact I'm living dying on this land
    Exhausted is the realm of nature, friends are dying
    The living creatures on our side
    The way I see myself so confused so sophisticated
    Don't have to stay away from me
    But I still don't get the point
    What's worth destroying all the worlds

    Try not to get it anymore [4x]
     
  2. Coincidently, I just posted this song in another thread not too long ago:

    http://forum.grasscity.com/spiritua...ou-philosophically-spiritually-thread-49.html (if you want to hear the actual song, just go to the thread)

    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.
