Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Seconds, Minutes, Hours

Flew off early in the haze of dawn
In a metal dragon locked in time
Skimming waves of an underground sea
In some kind of a dream world fantasy
Sun a hot circle on a canopy
’25 a racing blot on a bright green sea
Ahead the dim blur of an alien land
Time to give ourselves to strange gods’ hands
Dark flak spiders bursting in the sky
Reaching twisted claws on every side
No place to run
No place to hide
No turning back on a suicide ride
Toy city streets crawling through my sights
Sprouting clumps of mushrooms like a world surreal
This dream won’t ever seem to end
And time seems like it’ll never begin
Thirty seconds
And a one way ride
Thirty seconds
And no place to hide
Thirty seconds over Tokyo

30 Seconds Over Tokyo by Pere Ubu.

I see you had your mind all made up you group of pitiful liars
Before I woke to face the day, your master plan transpired
Something told me, this job had more to meet the eye
My song is not believed?
My words somewhat deceiving?
Now I’m unwhole
You’ve waged a war of nerves
But you can’t crush the kingdom
Can’t be what your idols are
Can’t leave the scar
You cry for compensation
I ask you please just give us
Five minutes alone
I read your eyes, your mind was made up
You took me for
A fool
You used complexion of my skin for a counter
Racist tool
You can’t burn me, I’ve spilled my guts out
In the past
Taken advantage of because you know where
I’ve come from my past
You’ve waged a war of nerves
But you can’t crush the kingdom
Can’t be what your idols are
Can’t leave the scar
You cry for compensation
I ask you please just give us
Five minutes alone

5 Minutes Alone by Pantera.

24 hours, split three ways
Because you bought one third, you own everything
Shut off the possibility, and wipe out the imagination
Now the world stands still
I’ll take it with me to my grave

Wrap your hands around my neck
Now choke me slowly, but I won’t die
I know one thing, and one thing only:
You are what you learn to need
I’ll surround myself with things that look like me
I’ll take them with me to my grave

24 Hours by Swans.

Theme for Song Lyric Sunday this weekend was seconds/minutes/hours but because I just can’t pick one of the three, you can? or just listen to all three!

This week’s feature image is American metal band with the Russia army! I did seen a news story in the last week or so about footy fans are missing watching games because it’s in Russia, oh boo-hoo! But who remember’s in the 90’s when the Iron Curtain fell and that place got a western metal festival but security guys was the Russia army, by all accounts it was pure insane!

  Cheers 🙂
