Song lyric Sunday: Endless/eternity/everlasting/forever/omega

What an interesting choice of subjects for this week’s song lyric Sunday. I have chosen two different songs because the first one is more of a piece of performed poetry. Not that stone sour normally do poetry but this is what it is.
Omega is the final track on the 2002 album and is basically a snapshot of life in the thoughts of someone random. Not really sure if this is based on something specific because I don’t really know much about American politics, especially not of that time! It sounds to me as if it is about corporate greed and people just trying to get by but being forced into working themselves to their death. I could be very wrong and look forward to anyone giving their thoughts.

Next up we have the foo fighters with ever long. This is a song about making things last forever especially feelings when they are good.
If you haven’t seen it, look up the official video and try to work out the meaning of that as it is completely insane! I would have put it here but it stops you listening to the actual song!


One thought on “Song lyric Sunday: Endless/eternity/everlasting/forever/omega

  1. What a skeletal wreck of man this is
    Translucent flesh and feeble bones
    The kind of temple where the whores and villains
    Try to tempt the holistic tones
    Running rampant with free thought to free form
    In the free and clear
    And the matters at hand are shelled out like lint at a laundrymat
    To sift and focus on the bigger, better, now
    We all have a little sin than needs venting
    Virtues for the rending
    And laws and systems
    And stems ariff from the branches of office
    Do you know what your post entails?
    Do you serve a purpose?
    Or purposely serve?
    Lying down inside of your atavistic galore
    The value of a Summer spent
    And a Winter earned
    For the rest of us there is always Sunday
    The day of the week that reeks of rest
    But all we do is catch our breaths
    So we can wade naked into the bloody pool
    And place our hand on the big black book
    To watch the knives zig-zag between our aching fingers
    A vacation is a count-down
    T-minus your life and counting
    Time to drag your tongue across the sugar-cube
    And hope you get a taste
    What the fuck is all this for?!
    What the hell’s going on?!
    Shut up!
    I could go on and on, but, let’s move on shall we?
    Say, you’re me and I’m you
    And they all watch the things we do
    And like a smack of spite
    They threw me down the stairs
    Haven’t felt like this in years
    The great magnet of malicious magnanimous refuse
    Let me go and
    Plunge me into the dead spot again
    That’s where you go when there’s no one else around
    It’s just you
    And there was never anyone to begin with now was there?
    Sanctimonious pretentious dastardly bastards
    With their thumb on the pulse
    And a finger on the trigger
    Classified my ass! That’s a fucking secret and you know it!
    Government is another way to say
    Better than you
    It’s like ice but no pick
    A murder charge that won’t stick
    It’s like a whole other world
    Where you can smell the food but you can’t touch the silverware
    Hah, what luck
    Fascism you can vote for
    Isn’t that sweet?
    And we’re all gonna die some day
    Because that’s the American way
    And I’ve drunk too much
    And said too little
    When your gaffer taped in the middle
    Say a prayer, save face
    Get yourself together and
    (See what’s happening)
    Shut up!
    (Fuck you!)
    Fuck you!
    I’m sorry, I could go on and on but
    It’s time to move on, so
    Remember you’re a wreck, an accident
    Forget the freak, you’re just nature
    Keep the gun oiled and the temple clean
    Shit, snort and blaspheme
    Let the heads cool and the engine run
    Because in the end
    Everything we do
    It’s just everything we’ve done
