Sorry all of my verses are the whole song, but I couldn't give part of this one. It's like reading a chapter of a story. This one I really listened to the words for the first time today, and it hit me hard.

Luther Jackson Green
Lived in the apartment above me
We smoked cigarettes on the stairs
Tell me stories that white boys never hear

Like when he found his shine
And moved North in 1949
On his 10th birthday daddy took him to town
To see the Jackie Robinson play.

It was a picture perfect day
In the sunshine and the hate
He didn't understand why all those
People would say such awful things.

His daddy said pay no attention to them
Turnaround and watch the man play

The one black man in the baseball field
Was better in every way
My daddy said if you wanna win in this world
You gotta beat em at the their own game.

Luther Jackson Green
Went to law school in 1963
In the summer between he worked in Alabama
With Martin Luther King

He met a girl on a summer night
He fell hard when they saw each other's eyes
There were people in town that really didn't
Like that he was black and she was white

They found her in the ditch
A little outside of town
Some stupid man was laughin about it
So Luther beat him down

He looked him in the eye, he spit in his face and
Turned and walked away.
He knew he was better than all the hate!
He knew he was bigger than all the pain!
He knew that there's a time to fight and a time to walk away!

He knew until he changed the rules
Ohh yeah gotta beat em at their own game.

He never did lose
That feeling inside.
You could hear it in his voice
You could see it in his eyes.

Luther moved out West to live
When his wife passed away
He lives right next door to his son
So he can watch his grandchild play.

Luther Jackson Green
Watched election night with me.
We put a black man in the White House
A thing he never thought he'd see.

Even though he never cried
I could see tears in his eyes
He had dreamed about this moment
Every single day of his life.

Yeah Luther died that night in his sleep
But he lived long enough to see,
America become the kind of place
He always wanted it to be.

He said you could never forget the day
That we beat em at their own game!

Yeah just like Jackie Robinson. (Just like Jackie Robinson! )
Gotta be bigger than all the hate! (Just like Jackie Robinson! )
Gotta be better than all the pain! (Just like Jackie Robinson! )
Gotta find a better way! (Just like Jackie Robinson! )

In dreams I see myself flying
Closer to the sun, and I'm climbing
Tried to touch the sun
But the brightness burned my eyes
Unconscious, or am I conscious?
Fell from the sky like a star
Sometimes I feel as though I'm frozen in heaven

Dark, frozen, hibernation held at bay
As your mind, left behind, lost another day.
But finally there’s someone to believe.
Anti-social boredom is all the rage
But the time comes when you gotta turn the page
And then finally there’s someone to believe.
And now you walk with confidence and ease.
And there’s no call to sell your soul or confess or drop down to your knees.

Who, what, or where made you change your mind?
Doesn’t matter anymore ‘cuz you’ve seen a sign.
And now finally there’s someone to believe.
Searching for the answer’s a lonely quest
But the act is liable to bring out your best.
And then finally there’s someone to believe.
And now you have a purpose to proceed.
And you find out the baggage that you discarded, you didn’t even need.

No one can deny a return to form
Irrespective of the morass, shame, and scorn.
But then finally there’s someone to believe.
Ready to emerge and direct your fate
As the self-determination radiates
Because finally there’s someone to believe.
And now you walk with confidence and ease.
And it feels like the spring equinox after a long winter’s sleep.

Finally, there’s someone to believe.

  • This tragedy is all my fault.

Posted 09 February 2013 - 06:24 PM

In those discouraging days
I always missed the mark
When we were comfort and close
I would neglect to keep

Ooh, you safe and unexposed
A portrait of time repeats
This moment now replaced
With an empty wish to give
I give, I gave

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality I made
This selfish war machine

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you
There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

Here in the dark side of me
Here in the dark side of me

Now in your absence I wade
Through the coursing, lonely, lost
And in this tragic dismay
I never could believe what I became

We drift away with the dust
The light consumes the dark recluse
No time to waste in the mess
I will retreat, no sin confessed
How did we get so lost? Anyway

Who will repair this broken heart?
This world will miss none of us
The sick we cure, the bad we just
Who will repair this broken heart?

Believer
Your spotlight on the subject so incorrect
And suggestion suggests that I'm someone you should not respect
Oh you wear your facade so well
Covered up in a plastic shell
You're a liar to everyone around you
Just don't forget

Face the honest truth
You were never you

Now be defiant, the lion
Give them the fight that will open their eyes
Hangman hooded, softly swinging
Don't close the coffin yet
I'm alive

I'm paranoid and sick of this
World's misconception of things I did
My language poured across this wrist
In a metaphoric disaster
My guess, I'm missing out the punch line
Unless this hanging noose
Is fitted to be all mine

I stood by everything I loved
While you never understood me much

'Cause there's only one of me
And too many of you fighting over nothing
Oh, there's never enough cool for everyone
And before you know it you're selling out to be in

There's never enough cool

These eyes ungoverned are tearing us apart
Their ears forsaken have given up on art
Now, why believe in anything they praise
When one hand holds them the victor
While the other holds the shovel to their graves

Oh, this ticket window has closed
Save your money, baby
The next show's about to start
Where else can you get to watch this talent fall?
One by one they drop

I flew head first into the light
Weightless, crisscrossing, precise
In a dream or was it life?

Inside this door all answers wait
So saddle up my steed
Where the lies live way beneath

Oh my, I think I’ve made a mess
This is all my fault it’s what I’ve wished

And I was wrong to let you go
I accept my mistake, but you will never know
This is my love into a ten ton truck
Baby, please remember the better me

No time to change my life in the air before
Our maximum reach outweighed
Apart, picture-less retreat

The terror meets the truth, no longer who
We know what we must do
Shadow dancing through the roof

Contact the life you used to know
Gravity, the world in tow
And I was wrong to let you go
I accept my mistake, but you will never know
This is my love into a ten ton truck
Baby, please remember the better me

Driver may I sleep with you tonight
Numbered uncertainty
City limits, shoe strewn diary
The roar of the engine won’t cease

All of my love and heart spilled in this car
Picture me the perfect enemy
Our lives are one, colliding up and beyond
In this fatal possibility

I am your, I am your prize

We wave welcome aboard
We wave welcome aboard
In my eyes I drown you

Has he forgotten his place
Bait the hook and let it sink
No cause for alarm
Enter the master, I am Dr. Straight

Scalpel keep that lung in place
Nurse, IV needs refilling
Now watch the brain
Responding quite normal
This life I can save

Every man has a point
Where he breaks or conjoins
Among pressure that floods to complicate
Matters close to the heart
Will define who we are
Do we love? Do we hate?
We are only the meat

We understood the unmistakable
Two romantics on holiday and
How they stole our love

Caged
Locked in perpetual motion
Carving our wounds wide open
But you let the wrong one in

Here in our dreams, we'll reach a great beyond
Believe me, take my word, I'll never break your heart...
And away we go

Sinking in this beautiful undertow, together with you

The clearness of the sun is paler than the moon
I have to shed the blood of my son
The clearness of the sun is paler than the moon
The flame in my eyes slowly fades away

The darkness in my heart is colder than the night
I have to hold my knife
The darkness in my heart is colder than the night
I have to take his life

Lonelyness in my life is stronger than the steel
I have to obey cause I belong to him
Lonelyness in my life is stronger than the steel
I am the only one, hearing his voice

Bend your head, don't say a word
Forgive me son, my faith cant' be broken

I bend my head, I don't say a word
I forgive you father
Your faith causes my end

Fear, grief, shame
I deny the words of god

Fear grief, death
You won't kill me, father

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

Cause we are
We are shining stars
We are invincible
We are who we are
On our darkest day
When we're miles away
So we'll come
We will find our way home

If you're lost and alone
Or you're sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
Carry on

Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter,
You piper, you prisoner, and shine

One last kiss for you
One more wish to you
Please make up your mind girl...
I'd do anything for you
One last kiss for you
One more wish to you
Please make up your mind girl...
Before I hope you die

Good eye, sniper
Here I'll shoot, you run
The words you scribbled on the walls
With the loss of friends you didn't have
I'll call you when the time is right
Are you in or are you out?
For them all to know the end of us all

Run quick, they're behind us
Didn't think we'd ever make it
This close to safety in one piece
Now you wanna kill me in the act of what could maybe
Save us from sleep and what we are

She gave her heart to a falling star
When news filtered through of his tragedy all the walls went up
Around a world she declines
As the tears from her eyes fall
No one understands, and no one will
All she has lost

If he's not here, then where?
If he's not here, then where?
If he's not here then where?
If he's not here then where?

When she found it there in the cold, blue glare
The words distressed and unfamiliar where the feelings seared

An emptiness had hung, and in her chest, she clenched
Reality settled as the memories raced while on the screen he lived

She teared; "Your selfishness has robbed you of the man you could've been
I wouldn't change a thing about you. I love you dearly, my friend"

If he's not here then where?
If he's not here then where?

My love, Been searching for my Afterman

If he's not here then where?
If he's not here then where?

My love, Been searching for my Afterman
